Ends Hunt For Rich Girl.
Often the hunt for a rich wife
ends when the man meets a wo
man that uses Electric Bitters. Her
strong nerves tell in a bright brain
and even temper. Her peach-bloom
complexion and ruby lips result
from pure blood; her bright eyes
from restful sleep; her elastic step
from firm, free muscles, all telling
of the health and strength Electric
Bitters give a woman, and the free
dom from ^indigestion, backache,
headache, fainting and dizzy spells
they promote. Everywhere they are
woman's favorite remedy. If weak
or ailing try them. 50o at Peiw.?

Dr. Frank Jones Sends a Very
Satisfactory Explanation to
Mr. Garnett in Refer
ence to Tick Fever.
Probably I can explain the cause
of Texas fever in cows and the re
lation of the disease to the improper
feeding of cotton seed meal in a way
that Mr. Garnett can understand.
Fifteen or twenty years ago far
mers of this country had not the
slightest idea of the loss that the
Texas fever tick was causing. They
would attack the young calf and it
would have a mild form of the dis
ease which would retard its devel
opment and growth but would give
to it an acquired immunity from the
disease. By keeping and breeding
such animals the death Tate was
minimized. But animals (cows)
bred and raised under such condi
tions were and are almost worthless.
Some farmers have pursued the
wise plan when tbsy got rid of
their Texas fever breed and chang
ed their pastures, and by so doing
have eliminated the disease and are
now raising healthy valuable cows.
Others are introducing new blood
with their tick infested scrub herds
with an idea of . improving their
breed. But without fim preparing
for the health and welfare of the
animals, which consists in plowing
up the old pastures, spraying the
standard dip and keeping cows or
other animals infested with the
ticks from entering any lands where
the cows that have been f sprayed
are likely to go there is little hope
of exterminating the tick. If such
precautions are taken for 24 months
there will be no need for fear cf tbe

Perfect health, and able to resist its
Power of action. That is very likely
why the cows that were fed cotton
seed meal died with Texas fever.
The meal was fed in an unwise
manner which caused the animals
to have a lowered vitality and fail
to resist the action of the disease.
The Fairwold farms and Taylor's
dairy in Columbia feed hundreds
of herd of cattle on cotton seed
meal and don't have Texas fever.
Why? Because the tick is not pres

The Democratic D onkey.
The Democratic Donkey
Is now braying loud.
For the clover fields are blooming,
And the sky's without a cloud.
He winks his eye at Wilson,
Flops his ears at Clark,
Switches his tail at Underwood
And gallops over the park.
But soon November will come,
Then where will he be?
With cockle burrs all in his tail,
And a spavin on his knee.
His loud braying then will stop
For four years or more.
He will limp into his stable
Feeling very lame and sore.
The Plutocrats may tell him,
"Just you wait awhile
The clover will yet bloom again,
And then you can once more smile.1'
"Wilson, Clark and Underwood,
Will be out at first,
Then you can play the fool again,
By bringing out Willie Hearst."
"Perhaps Mr. Taft or Roosevelt,
Will feed you some hay.
Pick the burrs from your mane
And smile when you try to bray."
Poor donkey what future,
So hopeless and so dark,
No ray of light through Under
No hope of feeding by Clark.
No antidote for spavin
By Dr. Wilson sold
So try to stand it poor donkey,
Until your feet feels the cold.
Of one thing you may be sure,
Tho, you eat your fill,
Through the sunshine on the
You will be a donkey still.
