Onions raised in Kentucky are

poultry frequently pass through the

The marketing of clover seed is an
example of a transfer from one farm

middlemen. The first middleman
may be an Indiana jobber who con

The last middleman in this course of

MOTHERS OF PUNY CHILDREN
May Find Help in This Letter.
"My little daughter ever since her
birth had been frail and sickly, and
was a constant source of worriment.
Several months ago I secured a bottle
of Vinol and commenced to give it to
her. I soon noticed an improvement
in her health and appearance. I gave
her in all three bottles and from the
good it has done her I can truly say
it will do all you claim." J. Edmund
Miller, New Haven, Conn.
The reason Vinol builds up weak,
ailing children so quickly is because
it contains in a delicious combination
the two most world famed tonicsi.
e., the strength creating, tody build
ing elements of cod liver oil, with all
the useless grease eliminated, and
tonic' iron for the blood added. If
you have a weak, puny, ailing child.

money if it tails to benefit your little

which the consignor may designate
a final destination. The purpose of
this practice is to enable the consign
or to find the best market for his
goods. This is the plan followed in
shipping fruits and vegetables by rail
from California to the east and from
Southern states to the north.
The secretary of agriculture has
much to say concerning associative
marketing by farmers, and the econ
omic advantages are stated in detail.
"A survey of the systems of market
ing farm products clearly discovers
what the farmers can best do to their,
advantage. They must associate
themselves together for the purpose
of assembling their individual contri
butions of products, of shipping in
carload lots, of obtaining market
news at places to which it is practi
cal to send their products, to sell in
a considerable number of markets, if
not in many markets, and to secure
the various other economic gains of
To carry out this suggestion, it is
recommended that if congress estab
lishes a division of markets, a corps
of traveling field agents be. maintain
ed to assist farmers to form associa
tions for marketing their products.
It is also recommended that esti
mates of the prospective supply of
fruits and vegetables, and perhaps
other products not now represented
in the quantitative estimates of the
department's crop reporting service,
be made a short time before harvest,
so that the farmer may "have in mind
a fairly definite idea of the volume
of the crap throughout the country
in order that he may occupy a place
in the market that is fair to himself
or, as the case may be, a place in the
market that is fair to the consumer."
General market news service is not
recommended. If such service were
derived from telegraphic reports, the
expense would be enormous. One far
mers' marketing association spends
$25,000 a year in telegraphing alone
and a fruit growers' organization
spends $75,000 for this service.

Great interest attaches to this first
annual convention for the Chamber
of Commerce of the United States is
just eight months old, having grown
out of the national commercial con
ference, called to meet in Washing
ton last April. The officers and direc
tors then chosen have within less
than a year made the chamber a
power in the business affairs of the
Nation. The need of a Chamber of
Commerce of the United States was
seen before ever the Constitution of
the United States was-written. In
1783 Pelatiah Webster outlined the
place of such an organization, yet
only is 1912 did it become a fact.
The rapid growth of the recent past
indicates how decided a need this
organization will fill. Two hundred
and thtirty-five business organiza
tions are now united In one.
The first annual banquet will be
held January 22. President Taft will
be the principal speaker. The guests
of the conventi&n will be heads of de
partments and congressional leaders.
The chamber of commerce is non
partisan. It is an organized endeavor
to render available for congress and
the government the opinion of the
business interests of the nation.

Jeff Tesreau of .the New York Giants
ball club is the leading hurler of the
National league by the modern method
of figuring percentages although Hen

pitched. Tesreau was third in games
won and lost by the Giants. Mathew

Tesreau under the new system, al
though he finished eighth according to
For the basis of his new method of
rating twirlers Mr. Heydler chose the
actual number of runs made by the op
posing team, for which each pitcher
was responsible. He adopted a modi
fication of the old "earned run," which
was. abolished officially many years
ago. In computing the number of
earned runs, each pitcher was charged
with runs which resulted from safe
hits, sacrifice hits, bases on balls, hit
batsmen, wild pitches and balks. Runs
scored as direot results of fielding er*
rors, stolen bases and passed balls
were exempted from the record and no
runs were charged against pitchers, no
matter how they were made, aftei
chances had been offered, and not ac
cepted, to retire the side.

To Darken the Hair and Restore Gray
and Faded Hair to Its Na
It is easier to preserve the color of
the hair than to restore it, although
it is possible to do both. Our grand
mothers understood the secret. They
made a "sage tea," and their dark,
glossy hair long after middle life was
due to this fact. Our mothers have
gray hairs before they are fifty, but
they, are beginning to appreciate the
wisdom of our grandmothers in us
ing "sage tea" for their hair and are
fast following suit.

vantage of the past in that it can get

storer this preparation is vastly su

made by our grandmothers.

depends on a healthy condition of the

life, color and lustre, makes the scalp
clean and healthy, gives the hair
