For Three or Four Years Suffered
Himself With Indgestion and
Lack of Appetite. Often
Have Nervous, Diz
zy and Vomiting
HOW HE CURED HIMSELF.
"I was suffering: terribly from
stomach trouble and indigestion. I
bad suffered three or four years, and
after trying several patent medi
cines without getting relief I was
greatly distiessed. I lacked a good
appetite, and after breakfast I would
have vomiting spells and dizzy, nerv
ous attacks due to the condition of
my stomach. After those years of
suffering Acid iron Mineral was
recommended to me as a great rem
edy for such troubles, and I was
completely cured of indigestion and
sickness after using two bottles. It
helped me when nothing else would,
and I believe it will help others
with the same trouble because I
know what it will do. It is a great
blood purifier, too," declared Mr.
F. G. Addison, a school treacher at
Van Dyke, Va.

How Navy Trains Youth.
The whole service of the United
States navy is educational. At the
training station recruits get the rudi
ments of naval training and of teeh
?nlcnl instruction, which is continued
on ship board. "The American navy,"
!says the Secretary of the Navy, "offers
as fine an opportunity ns exists to
the American youth who wishes to
Win in the race of life. The vast
majority of boys in graded and high
schools study their geography out ot
books. The bluejacket studies geo
graphy aboard ship and compares
.the "book learning" with the real
thing as he circumnavigates the globe.
The school boy at home gets his his
tory out of the books, but the blue
jacket may add to his book knowledge
a. glimpse of the Inside of Westmin
ster Abbey, or a sight of the Coliseum
nt Rome, ns he is given leave while
on his vessel's cruises around the
world. He has the fourfold oppor
tunity of serving his country, learn*
!ing a trade, improving his mind in
?study, and travel."
A prominent business man of Nash
ville, answering the call "To plant a
garden." set out 1~>0 cabbage plants,
which were given to him In the early
spring by a farmer friend. The plants
;received the very best of care, being
watered almost every evening and the
ground around tho plants was kepi
?loose. The plants grew aud grew until
ithey caused the "new gardner" to
?boast to his business friends that ho
.had the nicest "patch" of cabbage In
the county. With a little "salt" his
'friends swallowed his statements, but
after today no more will be heard
about his big cabbage. They were
found to be rape plants and not cab
Half Your Living
Without Money Cost
We are all at a danger point. On
tho use of good common sense in our
191S farm and garden operations de
pends prosperity or our "going broke."
Even at present high prices no one
can plant all or nearly all cotton, buy
food and grain at present prices from
supply merchant on credit and make
money. Food and grain is higher in
proportion than are present cotton
li's a time above all others to play
safe; to produce all possible food,
grain and forage supplies on your own
acres; to cut down thc store "bill.
A good piece of garden ground,
rightly planted, rightly tended and
kept planted the year round, can be
made to pay nearly half your living. It
will save you more money than you
made cn the best three acres of cotton
you ever grew!

President Georgia Chamber Of Com
merce Show6 How Millions Were
Saved Last Year
money was saved in 1917 through the
medium of the home garden than ever
before, the United States Department
of Agriculture estimating that there
were fully one million new gardens
made last year," says H. G. Hastings,
President of the Southeastern Fair and
the Georgia Chamber of Commerce,
in an interview reviewing the 1917
farming operations in the South.
"Thousands upon thousands of our
people in the South,'' said Mr. Hast
ings, "for the first time in their lives
learned to appreciate the money sav
ing power of the home garden, proper
ly planned, prepared for, planted and
kept planted during the entire sea
"Up to the present it has been very
hard to get our people to consider the
home garden seriously as a real sub
stantial factor in food production with
the consequent saving of money that
went for food supplies at the store.
Unless we are much mistaken the
home garden will from now on be
taken as seriously as any other part
of the farm work.
"A quarter to a half acre devoted
to a variety of vegetables liked by the
family can be kept going nearly the
whole year in the South and give its
owner as much as the product of two
or three acres of cotton, even at pres
ent prices, will buy at the store. The
right kind of a garden means an
abundance of healthful food during
spring, summer and fall and an abund
ance either canned or dried for win
"Let no one be fooled by the lies
epread abroad that the Government
is going to seize home canned goods
pn closet shelves in the farm or
nome. These lies are started by Ger
man agents for the express purpose of
discouraging our people in increased
food production and savin*
go to the firing line, but all can Join
in and have a part in home produc
tion of food.
"We have never seen a permanent
ly prosperous farm section either in
the United States or in foreign coun
tries that was not a diversified sec
tion, and in every diversified section
the home garden has an honored and
valued place. The home garden is a
store bill cutter of the first rank."
NITRATE OF LITTLE VALUE
So Far That Found in Western States
Cannot Be Worked to Finan
In connection with the sonroh for
potash and nitrates in the United
States the government receives many
reports of supposed valuable discov
eries. A letter recently received by
the United States geological survey
! of the interior department describes a
. cave in one of tho Southern states
i which wns worked by the Confederacy
j during the Civil war for potassium
i nitrate. This cave is said to contain
j nt least 1.000.000 tons of nitrous earth,
which, however, contains only 1 or 2
per cent of nitrate. The survey now
states that it seems very doubtful
whether such material can be profit
ably used us a source ol' nitrate salts.
The minimum grade of caliche now
worked in the Chilean fields contains
12 per cent of sodium nitrate, and
I though there has been much criticism
J of the crudeness of tho methods em
ployed there, the work is done by very
cheap Indian labor, and it is "doubtful
whether leaner material could be
worked to advantage here, where the
price of labor is so much higher. Sev
eral hundred thousand dollars has re
cently been expended in one of the
Western states in testing the proposi
tion to utilize low-grade nitrate. The
results have been negative.
FATHER OF MODERN LIBERTY
Simon De Montfort Credited With
Idea Which Led to the Present
The commons of England were
called to sit in parliament for the first
time In 1205, a little more than 050
years ago, and 50 years after King
John had been forced by the .?arous
to sign the Magna Charts.
The man responsible for this popu
lar representation was Simon de Mont
fort, earl of Leicester, who was killed
in the battle of Evesham on August 4,
1205, only n few months after he had
gained a place in history as the father
of the English house of commons. Un
der his leadership the barons had
waged a successful war on King
Henry, and had taken the monarch
and his son, afterward Edward I, pris
oners of war. Leicester, who 'md laid
down thc law that the kiug derives
his power from the people and must
use it for the public good, governed
for a time in the name of the king,
and issued the ordinance in 12G5, in
which each city and town was called
upon to "choose and send two dis
creet, loyal and lamest men" to rep
resent them in parliament. Thus was
laid the foundation of the house of
