Often The Kidneys Are
Weakened by Over-Work.
Unhealthy Kidneys Hake Impure Blood.
\^eak and unhealthy kidneys are re
sponsible for much sickness and sufren n g,
therefore, if kidney
trouble is permitted to
continue, serious re
sults are most likely
to follow. Your other
organs may need at
tention, but your kid
neys most, because
they do most and
should have attention
first. Therefore, when
your kidneys are weak or out of order,
you can understand how quickly your en
tire body is affected and how every organ
'seems to fail to do its duty.
If you are sick or " feel badly," begin
taking the great kidney remedy, Dr.
Kilmer's Swamp-Root. A trial will con
vince you of its great merit.
The mild and immediate effect of
Swamp-Root* the great kidney and
bladder remedy, is soon realized. It
stands the highest because its remarkable
health restoring properties have been
proven in thousands ol the most distress
ing cases. If you need a medicine you
should" have the best.
Sold by druggists in
fifty-cent and one-dol
lar sizes. You may
have a sample bottle
by mail free, also a
pamphlet telling you TE?T3SSm?55r
how to find out if you have kidney or
bladder trouble. Mention this paper
when writing to Dr. Kilmer '& Co.,

take, but remember the name, Swamp
Root, and don't let a dealer sell you
something in.place of Swamp-Root-if
you do you will be disappointed.

Likes Williamson Plan.
A majority of farmers, so far as
our information extends, who have
tried the Williamson plan of grow
ing, corn are greatly ? pleased with
the results obtained.. While in con
versation with Mr.. M. DeLoach a
few days ago, he told the writer of
his success with Williamsom corn
last year. The only mistake he made
was in not using a very heavy ap
plication of fertilizers. This he fully
realizes and will use a greater quan
tity per acre during the present
year. Being a man of good judg
ment and one of the most success
ful farmers in the county, Mr. De
Loach's approval pf0the William
son plan is a very strong endorse

Will Plant Two Acres.
Of the scores of farmers who
have recently informed- us that they
are planning to enter The Adverti

said that he is arranging to plant
two acres, cultivating them by differ

fall the one from which the greatest
yield is obtained. This is a capital
idea. Such an experiment would be
exceedingly helpful aside from the
profit derived from the yield.
