Tho Department of Agriculture at
Washington, D. C, Is investigating
tho possibilities of silkworm culture
In tho United States. It is hoped that
It may in timo bo developed to such
nn oxtent as to provo of benefit to
thoso members of families whoso time
Is not altogether occupied in other
ways, and also to other porsons in a
small way as a sido Issue. To persona
wishing to experiment, and who can
furnish proper food for tho worms, the
Department is distributing free of
charge a small quantity of silkworm
eggs and also a manual of instruc
tions. Tho proper food for silkworms
consists of lyavos from tho different
varieties of vhlto mulberry treo and
tho Osage orango. Tho paper mul
berry (with tho fuzzy leaves)' is not
suitable, nor is tho common red mul
berry. As the season is now open, ap
plications for tho eggs should bo made
at once, and must bo accompanied by
a statement as to tho number and kind
of mulberry trees or tho amount of
Osugo orango which tho applicant pos
sesses; otherwise tho eggs will not be
sent. If the variety of mulberry is not
known to tho applicant, a samplo of
largo leavos should bo sent to tho De
partment. Tho Department of Agri
culture buys tho cocoons which the
worms spin, paying for them (after
they have been dried (75 cents to $1
a pound, nccording to their quality.
Tho work will provo an Interesting
pastime for women and children who

Transplanting Tree3 and Shrubs, at
From Paris comes a report that the
gardonoro and florists there follow tho
practice of transplanting at night
(rocs that are in full leaf and havo to
bo transplanted In tho spring or sum
mer. It is claimed that the trcos do
not wilt when transplanted at that
time. This mny bo possible, but wo
still believe that tho time to trans
plant trees and shrubs is when thoy
are dormant. In hot weather it might
do to transplant garden truck, In the
night. Wo know that in wet weather
tomatoes and other transplantable
things do bettor if set out at that time
than thoy do In a timo of drought.
Wo would like to havo our readers re
port to us tho result of any experi
ments carried on along that line. Of
courso a treo in full leaf Is evaporat
ing a great deal of water during tho
day and this procoss is quite small at
night, oven if it is not chocked alto
gether. Tho Idea of transplanting at
night is, howover, a now ono, nnd tho
practico is worth investigating.
Preparing for an Orchard.
Speaking of tho best soil for an ap
plo orchard, L. A. Goodman said: In
tho preparation of tho land and tho
distanco of planting, wo must bo di
rected by tho cllmato, tho condition
of tho soil and thl surrounding cir
cumstances. I bollevo tho virgin tim
ber soil to bo tho best In every way.
it has provon such in all my experi
ences. Cutting this timber In August
and September, burning up all tho
brush In October and Novomber, plow
ing up tho land In Decombor and
January, and cross-plowing again in
March and April, havo boon tho host
coursos wo havo over pursued. It
pays to prepare well tho land where
tho "trees nro to bo planted, especially
whoro the trees aro to stand, for not
for many a year, novor during tho
llfo of that orchard, can that part bo
plowed again. Prepare well the land,
therefore, before planting.

Beware of Sweet Breakfast Foods
Many of the breakfast foods upon the market-are sweetened with gluside, a drug substitute for sugar.
The direct interference with the gastric digestion and the assimilation of food caused the French
Government to prohibit its use as a dietetic substitute for sugar. Children love it because it is sweet,
hence the danger. In selecting foods for daily use
is the one that will be found free from all Injurious substances safe for the children for all, sick or

Suggestions by Dp. Hartmsn. How
to Combat tht Nervous Depression
Incident to Warm Weather.
Nervousness is very common among
women. This condition is duo to
anaemic nerve centers. The nerve cen
ters are the reservoir for nerve vitality.
These centers become bloodless for the
want of proper nutrition.
This condition is especially noticeable
during tho warm season. Every sum
mer an army of invalids are produced as
a direct result of weak nervous systems.
This could easily be overcome by tho
use of Peruna. Pcruna strikes at tho
root of tho trouble by correcting the
digestion. Perfect digestion furnishes
increased nutrition for tho nervo cen
ters. Perfectly digested food gives theso
reservoirs of life a vitality which cre
ates strong, steady nerves, and in this
manner fortifies and nourishes life.
Miss Blanche Grey , a prominent young
society woman of Memphis, Tcnn., in a
recent letter from 174 Alabama street,
writes: "To a society woman whose
nervous force is often taxed to the
utmost from lack of rest and irregular
meals, know ot nothing which is of so
much benefit as Peruna, I took it a
few months ago when I felt my strength
giving 'way, and it aoon made itseli
manifest In giving mo new strength
and health.' Miss Blanche Qrey.
Pc-ru-na Contains No Narcotics.
One reason why Peruna has found
permanent use in so many homes is that
it contains nonarcotie of any kind. Pe
runa is perfectly harmless. It can be
used any length of time without acquir
ing a drug habit. Peruna does not pro
duce temporary results. It is perma
nent in its effect.
It has no bad effect upon the system,
and gradually eliminates catarrh by re
moving tho,causo of catarrh. There
aro a multitude of homes where Pcruna
has been used off and on for twenty
years. Such a thing could not be pos
sible if Pcruna contained any drugs of
a narcotic nature.
At this season of the year we are
peculiarly liable to inflammations of tho
stomach and bowels. It is the part of
wisdom to learn how to cut them short
and in the casist and quickest manner.
Perun does this by its peculiar power
over all forms of catarrhul troubles. .
