A well-known authority on Rheu
matism gives the following valuable
though simple and harmless, pres
cription, which any one can easily
prepare at home :
Fluid Extract Dandelion, one-half
ounce; Compound Kargon, one
ounce; Compound Syrup Sarsapa
rilla, three ounces.
Mix by shaking well in a bottle,
and take a teaspoonful after each
meal and at bedtime.
He states that the ingredients can
be obtained from any good prescrip
tion pharmacy at small cost, and,
being of vegetable extraction, are
harmless to take.
This pleasant mixture, if taken
regularly for a few days, is said to
overcome almost any case of Rheu
matism. The pain and swelling, if
any, diminishes with each dose, until
permanent results are obtained, and
without injuring the stomach. While
there are many so-called Rheuma
tism remedies, patent medicines,
etc., some of which do give relief,
few really give permanent results,
and the above will, no doubt, be
greatly appreciated by marry suffer
ers here at the this time.
Inquiry at the drug stores of this
neighborhood elicits the information
that these drugs are harmless and
can be bought separately, or the
druggists here will mix the prescrip
tion for our readers if asked to.

Hlght now In winter farmers with
the very best conditions for good gar
dens are buying cabbage and onions
from the stores when they could have
grown them with only a little labor.
Many others are doing without them
entirely. It seems that every farmer
ought to grow all the vegetables for
the family needs each year, and for all
the year, and havo some for sale,
rather than b compelled to buy.
Many gardeners never have a crop
of celery, egg plant, asparagus, horse
radlih, parsnips, carrots snd many
other wbolesomo vegetables, simply
becauie they think they are not able
to grow them. It Is true that soma
people seem to have more "luck" than
others with garden plsnts. However,
luck, In gardening, Is simply the re
sult of earnest and intelligent work.
The trouble with many people Is that
they do not actually lore garden work'
or any other work for that matter, will
never succeed at It. Uut tho one who
loves plants and loves to grow them
can grow anything In the garden
A good gardener Is always en
thused with his work and In winter
reads the seed catalogues and dreams
of spring. When spring comes he Is
ready for the work with a full supply
of seeds on hand. The poor garduner
must be driven Into the garden and
the good gardener can't be driven out
of It. That makes the difference.
Some people go south for winter
gardening, but winter gardening can
also bo done In the north. The soli
can be fertilised, plans laid out, seeds
selected and purchased, hot bed built
and started and everything got In read
iness for tht season's planting. Uo

. Keep The Kidneys Well.
:' Health U Worth Having, ami
Some JllcJcmnn People Know
How to Save It.
Many Hickman people take their
lives in their hands by neglecting
the kidneys when they know these
organs need help. Sick kidneys are
responsible for a vast amount of suf
fering and ill health, but there is no
need to suffer nor to remain In dan
ger when all diseases and aches and
pains due to weak kidneys can be
quickly and permanently cured by
the use of Doan's Kidney Pills.
Here is a Hickman citizen's recom
mendation. A. P. Iverbey, living In Hickman,
Ky., says: "For two or three
months I was troubled from the dis
ordered condition of my kidneys. I
had dull pains in the small of my
back, and whenever I stooped or
lifted anything, sharp twinges
would cause me misery. At night
the aching in my back greatly dis
turbed my rest and I arose in the
morning feeling lame. I usually
felt tired and lame and languid and
nervous spells bothered me. My
kidneys needed attention as was
proved by the sediment contained In
the secretions. Learning ol Doan's
Kidney Pills, I procured a box at
Helm and Ellison's drug store, and
in three days they relieved me. It
required but one half the contents of
the box to affect a complete cure. I
am glad to say this cure has been
permanent, and have no hesitancy in
allowing you to publish my state
