W. J. A. Could ono transplant a
largo tree? What Is the safest method
of doing this work?
In order to transplant a largo troo
successfully It must bo removed with
a largo ball of soil adhering to the
roots, in order to protect tho tiny root
lets from being destroyed. This is
host dono when tho ground is frozen
deep enough to hold tho ball together.
Cutting through tho frozen ground Is
hard work and takes much tlmo and
to avoid this beforo tho ground Is fro
zon dig a trench wound tho tree and
far enough from it to leave tho proper
sized ball. Dig down and under the
ball all around toward tho center, but
ieavo tho center undlsturbod and tho
tree in Its natural position. This will
givo tho ball the shape of a bowl
standing on flat bottom as shown by
tho skotch. Now fill In tho trench
with coarse manuro or anything that
will provont tho frost from penetrat

In Any Time of Trouble Is Grape-Nuts.
Food to rebuild tho strength and
that is pre-digested must be selected
whon ono is convalescent. At this
time there is nothing so valuable as
Grape-Nuts, for the reason that this
food is all nourishment and is also all
digestiblo nourishment. A woman who
used it says:
"Some time ago I was very ill with
typhoid fever, so ill everyone thought
I would die, even myself. It left mo
so weak I could not properly digest
food of nny kind and I also had much
bowel trouble which left me a weak,
"I needed nourishment as badly as
anyono could, but nono of tho tonics
holped mo until I finally tried Grape
Nuts food morning and evening. This
not only supplied food that I thought
delicious as could bo, but it also made
mo perfectly well and strong again
bo I can do all my housework, sleep
well, can eat anything without any
trace of bowel trouble and for that
reason alone Grape-Nuts food is worth
its weight in gold." Name given by
Postum Co., Battle Creek, Mich.
Typhoid fever, like somo other dis
eases, attcks the bowels and frequent
ly sets up bleeding and makes them
for months incapable of digesting the
starches and therefore pre-dlgested
Grape-Nuts is invaluable for the well
known reason that in Grape-Nuts all
tho starches havo been transformed
into grape sugar. This means that the
first stage of digestion has been me
chanically accomplished In Qrape-Nuts
food at the factories and therefore
anyone, no matter how weak the stom
ach, can handle It and grow strong, for
all the nourishment is still there.
There's a sound reason and 10 days'
trial proves. ;J t . XL . .
