The friends of Mr. and Mrs. J. P.
Whatley deeply sympathize with
them during the dark hour through
which they are passing, caused by
the death of their bright little seven

Everything possible was done for
his relief but God plucked this rose
bud before it had become contami

transplanted it in Heaven to await
the coming of father, mother and
other loved ones. The interment

Had all Kinds of Kidney, Blad
der and Stomach Troubles
Himself, But Got Rid of
TELLS HOW HE DID IT.
"Anybody who has suffered with
kidney, bladder and indigestion
troubles like I did, knows it is no
joke/' says the city marshal and tax
collector of Winter Haven, Florida.
"I had severe pains in and around
my kidneys and in my bladder and
sometimes would have to climb out
of bed as often as 8 or 9 times in a
night. It put me to a whole lot of
suffering not to mention expense.
My food sometimes wouldn't digest
at all, arid I was getting alarmed
about my condition when friends
who had found out about Acid Iron
Mineral started rae taking it. The
pains in my kidneys and bladder
disappeared and instead of crawling
out of bed at all hours of the night
my sleep got so peaceful and it did
me so much good I know it will
help people troubled like I was. I
want to pass the glad tidings along
to others because I know what a
hard time I had locating a real
remedy. My digestion and appetite
got better and I can eat anything I
want now. No sour stomach and in
digestion troubles ou my menu any
more," declares Winter Haven's
city marshal and tax collector, B.
Acid Iron Mineral is a medicinal
iron compounded from ore just as
it is dug in the mine. It is powerful
as can be. Just a teaspoonful in a
glass of water makes a powerful
dose. A twelve ounce bottle selling
at a dollar goes a long way and it
doesn't contain a drop of alcohol or
injuriour dope. It won't hurt any
one's teeth. It is just a good old
highly concentrated iron tonic, aid
to digestion and blood medicine.
The name, 'Ferrodine Chemical
Corp., Roanoke, Va,, is back of it
and means quality and strength.
Druggists have it or a fresh gener
ous size twelve ounce bottle will be
sent prepaid on receipt of 81?
To the Farmers
We are Jobson System dealers
for this county, and as such are ac
tively engaged in bringing the com
mon sense methods of easier and
more profitable farming to every
nook and corner of our section.
These methods and the remarka
ble Jobson plow have received the
endorsement of great Agricultur
ists, State officials and practical
farmers all over the country, and
these benefits are being extended to
all parts of the country at a rate
that certainly proves its merit and
genuine, practical advantage. No
farmer can afford to overlook the
opportunity of a thorough investi
gation of this system before going
further with his spring work.
The Jobson plow has no equal in
preparing the land (late or early,
wet or dry) before planting, and it
is also of extraordinary value in
working crops and in getting ready
for second crops. In fact, it is
something the farmer needs every
month in the year. A little investi
gation demonstrates this beyond

consumed. The case against John
L. George, indicted for the killing
of A. R. Brown, was continued un

outside of the court roora, hence it
was not necessary to hold a March
