Reliable evidence is abundant that women
are constantly being restored to health by
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
The many testimonial letters that we are continually pub.
fishing in the newspapers-hundreds of them-are all genu
ine, true and unsolicited expressions of heartfelt gratitude
for the freedom from suffering that has come to these
women solely through the use of Lydia 13. Pinkham's
Money could not buy nor any kind of influence obtain
such recommendations; you may depend upon it that any
testimonial we publish is honest and true-if you have any
doubt of this write to the women whose true names and
addresses are always given, and learn for yourself.
Read this one from Mrs. Waters:
thu&ne, N.J.-"I was sick for two years with nervous spells, and
kidneys were affected. I had a doctor all the time and used a
battery, but nothing did me any good. I was not able to go
to bed, but spent my time on a couch or in a sleepmg-chair, and soon
became almost a skeleton. Finally my doctor went away for his
health, and my husband heard of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Comu nd and got me some. In two months I got relief and now I
am a new woman and am at my usual weight. I recommend
y6r medicine to every one and so does my husband."-Mrs. Trua
WAMrns 530 Mechanic Stree., Camden, N.J.
From Hanover, Penn.
UmovZn, PA.-"I was a very weak woman and suffered from
bearing down pains and backache. I had been married over four
years and had no children. Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
proved an excellent remedy for it made me a well woman. After
takin a few >ottles my pains disappeared, and we now have one of
the finest boy babies you ever saw. -Mrs. C. A. RicKRoDz, R.F.D.,

Now answer this question if you can. Why should a
woman continue to suffer without first giving Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound a trial? You know that
it has saved many others-why should it fail in your case?

ROMANCE AND REELS
By BELLE K. MANIATES. :
Joyce Atherton, who had never had
a wish denied or a burden to bear,
was now confronted with the serious
problem of earning her living. Her
father had died suddenly, and when
the estate was settled there remained
for Joyce the sum of $100.
"I suppose," said a sweet girl friend,
who had always been envious of Joyce,
"that now you are poor Herndon Thay

Joyce winced. Herndon Thayer's
adoration of her had been an open se

love. He was a struggling young law

contempt for poor men who married

Naturalist Writes of Wild Pet
That is His Friend.
At present my favorite denizen of
the orchard is the chipmunk, writes
John B~urroughs in Harper's Maga
zine. He, too, lik'-. the apple seeds,
but he is not given to chipping up
the apples as much as is the red
sQuirrel. He waits till the apples are
ripe and then nibbles -the pulp. He
also likes the -orchard because it veils
his movements; when making his
trips to and fro, if danger threatens,
the trunk of every tree is a-house of
As I write these lines in my leafy
tent, a chipmunk comes in, foraging
for his winter supplies. I have
brought him cherry pits and peach
pits and cracked wheat, from time to
time, and now he calls on me several
times a day. His den is in the or
chard but a few yards from me, and
I enjoy having him for so near -a
neighbor. He has at last become so
familiar that he climbs to my lap,
then to the table, then to my shoulder
and head, looking for the kernels of
popcorn that he is convinced- 'have
some perennial source of supply near
me or about me. He clears up every
kernel, and then on his return, in a
few minutes, there they are again!
I might think him a good deal puz
zled by the prompt renewal of the
supply, if I were to read my own
thoughts into his little noddle, but I
see he is only eager to gather his
harvest while it is plentiful and so
near at hand. No, he Is not influenced
even by that consideration; he does
not consider at all, In factr but just
goes for the corn in nervous eager
ness and haste. Yet, if he does not
reflect, he certainly has a wisdom and
foresight of his own. This morning
I mixed kernels of fresh cut. green
corn with a handful of the dry, hard
popcorn upon the floor. At first he
began to eat the soft, sweet corn,
but, finding the small, dry kernels of
the popcorn, he at once began to stuff
his cheek pockets with. them, and
when they were full he hastened off
to his den. Back he came in about
three minutes, and he kept on doing
this till the popcorn was all gone;
then he proceeded to make his break
fast off the green corn. W'hen this
was exhausted, he began to strip
some thoke cherries (which I had
also placed among the corn) of their
skins and pulp, and to' fill his pockets
with the pits, thus carrying no perish
able food to his den. He acted exactly
as if he knew that the green corr
and the choke cherries would spoil
In his underground retreat, and tha
the hard, dry kind and the cherry
pits, would keep. He did know It
but not as you and I know It, by rea
son of experience; he knew It, as

SUCClESS OF DAIRYMAN
MUCH DEPENDS UPON CAREFUL
REARING OF CALVES.
Where Valuable Animals Are Raised
it Is Advisable When Poseible to
Have Separate Pens for Them
and Feed In Stanchion.
(By C. H. ECICLES.)
The succes!, of the dairy farme
depends to no slight extent upon the
careful rearing of the calyes. This is
especially true since dairy cows have
reached their present high market
price. Most farmers begih with ordi
nary cows or the best they can gel
close at home. As a rule this is thE
best plan to follow. The development
of a high class herd from these will
depend largely upon three things:
1.- The careful selection- of Indi
2. The use of I. pure bred sire.
3. The careful raising of the heif-I
er calves from the best cows.
The cow should be in -good flesh
at calving time for the best results
in milk. She should be dry six weeks.
.During the pasturing season there is
no better plan than to leave her in
the pasture, of course under observa
tion, until the calf is born.
The dairy calf is ordinarily raise4
by hand since the milk of the.dairy
cow Is usually worth so much more
than the calf that it requires the firsi
consideration. It is a well established
fact that a- calf raised on skim milk
is as good as one nursed by its moth
er. In localities familiar witha dairV'
ing this is well understood, but in. oth
er places is virtually unknown, and a
strong prejudice exists against feed!
ing skim milk on account of the un
healthy and undersized calves that
have been raiied In this way. Sucl'
calves are .the. victims of IgnorancE
or care'lessness. The skim milk call

which calves in the fall will producs
a greater yield during the year as the
summer grass stimulates secretior,
during the latter part of ladtation.
The calf's quarters should not be
allowed to accumulate a lot of damp
dirty materials as this is almost sure
to result in sickness and bad resulta.
The bedding should be abundant and
changed' often. In order that the
pens or stalls be. kept clean they
should be in the choicest part of the
barn where sunshine and light are
abundant. In summer they should
have access to a pasture where there
is plenty' of shade.
Where valuable calves are raised If
is advisable to have a separate pea
for each animal. Calves should be
fed in a stanchion. The most com.
mon trouble in calf-raising is scours,
or indigestion. This is brought on bf
over-feeding, feeding sour or old milk,
cold milk, and dirty pails, troughs oy
stalls. Staccess depends largely upon
the ability of the feedar'to prevent
scours. It Is easier to prevent scours
than it is to cure them. By watching

ROADS AS CROP PRODUCERS
Government StLdies Show How Agri
cultural Outlook of Country De
pends Upon Its Highways.
That an improved road will increase
vastly'the productiveness of the area
through whicli it runs has now been
matisfactorily demonstrated by studies
conducted by the United States depart
ment of agriculture in Virginia. Con
ditions in Spotsylvania county were In
vestigated with particular care, and
the results have proved surprising. 'In
1909 the county voted $100,000 to im
prove 40 miles of roads. Two years
after the completion 'of this work tfie
railroad took away in 12 months from
Fredericksburg, the county seat, 71,
000 tons of agricultural and forest
products hauled over the highways to
that town. Before the improvement
of the roads this total was only 49,000
tons annually; in other words the
quantity of the county's produce had
risen more than 45 per cent. Still
more interesting, however, is the in
crease shown in the quantity of the
dairy products. In 1909 these amount
ed to 114,815 pounds, in 1911 to 273,
028 pounds, an increase of practically
140 per cent in two years. In the
same time shipments of wheat had In
creased 59 per cent, tobacco 31 per
cent and lumber and other forest prod
acts 48 per cent.
In addition to this increase in quan
tity the cost of hauling each ton of
produce was materially reduced. ID

duce more but produce more cheaply,
for the cost of transportation to mans

In the cost of production. From this
point of view it is estimated that the'
$100,000 spent in improving the roads
in Spotsylvania county saved the farm
ers of that county $41,000 a year.
- In the past two years the traffic
studies of the federal experts show
that approximately an average of 65,
000 tons of outgoing products were
hauled over the improved roads in the
county, an average distance of eight
miles, or a total of 520,0000 "ton
miles." Before the roads were im

Because this, saving, in cases of this
character, does not take the form of

pockets, there is a widespread ten
dency to believe that It Is fictitious
profit, while as a matter of fact It Is
just as well a source of profit as the
increase in the price of wheat.
In Dinwiddles county, Virginia, for
example; where peanuts Is one of the
staple crops, the average load for two
mules on a main road was about one
thousand pouzids before the road was
improved. After Its improvement the
average load was found to be 2,000
pounds, and the time consumed ID
hauling the larger load to market was
much reduced. In other words, one
