For Forty Years Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound Has Been
Woman's Most Reliable Medicine
-Here is More Proof.
To women who are suffering from some form of
woman's special ills, and have a constant fear of breaking
down, the three following letters ought to' bring hope: -
North Crandon, Wis. -- "When I was 10 years
old I got married and at 18 years I gave birth to
twins and it left me with very p6or health. I could
not walk across the floor without having to sit
down to rest and it was hard for me to keep about
and do my work. I w1 it to a doctor and he told
me I had a displacement and ulcers, and would
have to have an operation. This frightened me so
much that I did not know what to do. Having
heard of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
'. I thought I would give it a trial and it made me as
> <.. well as ever. I cannot say enough in favor of the
Pinkham remedies."-Mrs. MAnm AsuAcu, North Crandon, Wis.
Testimony from Oklahoma.
Lawton Okla.-"When I began to take Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound I seemed to be good for nothing. I tired easily
and had headaches much of the time and was irregular. I took it again
before my little child was born and it did me a wonderful amount of
good at that time. I never fail to recommend Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound to ailing women because it has done so much
for me."-Mrs. A. L. MCCASLAND, l09 Have St., Lawton, Okla.
From a Grateful Massachusetts Woman.
Roxbury, Mass.-" I was suffering from inflam
mation and was examined by a physician who found
that my trouble was caused by a displacement.
My symptoms were bearing down pains, backache,
and sluggish liver. I tried several kinds of medi
cine; then I was asked to try Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound. It has enred ime andl I am
pleased to be in my usual good health by using it "
and highly recommend it." - Mrs. B. M. Osuoon, 4

Kentucky Blue Grass
Editor Ruralist-Will Kentucky
blue grass grow here and- make as
pretty a lawn as Bermuda?
When is the best time to trans
plant rose bushes.
Pensacola, Fla. Mrs. Chas. Nichols.
Reply-Kentucky blue grass is not
adapted to Florida conditions, as is
the Bermuda grass, and would not
make so good a lawn as the Bermuda.
The best time to transplant rose
bushes is after the bloom is off in
the fall, in November'or December.
Editor Ruralist-I subscribed for
the Ruralist sometime ago and have
made several inquiries regarding my
orange grove. I have eight hundred
LouisiAna sweet trees and would like
to learn how to cpltrvate and trim
my trees. Please give me the whole
dope on orange trees. 11. Richard.
Reply-Orange trees may be cul
tivated with a light harrow through
the winter and spring to conserve the
moisture. They should not, however,
be plowed after October 1, for as
long as orange trees are plowed, they
will continue to grow and send out
new sprouts, and that is the last
thing to be desired in the winter
time. Cultivation with a light har
row may be made every rain. As
soon as the rainy season begins sow
some leguminous crop, such as cow
peas or velvet beans, in the grove.
They will make a quick growth and
furnish enough humus and nitrogen
to supply the grove the rest of the
year. In the fall, however, this legu
minous crop should be turned under,
and clean culture begun once more.
The best time to trim trees is just be
fore they start their spring growth.
Cut out all of the dead wood. In
the rainy season cut off all of the
suckers as fast as they appear. They
will not bear fruit, and only waste
Irish Cobbler Potatoes
E:litor Ruralist-As a reader of
your paper for six years I would like
to get your advice. We have formed
A Growers' Association down here of
which I am manager. I have been
trying to get Irish Cobbler potatoes
for spring planting-will want about
sixty barrels. Have tried to connect
with the growers in Maine, but can
not get a reply. We want these po
catoes before frost. Can you tell me
where I could get them ? I would
also like your advice on shipping the
:rop in spring. Can I travel with th'e
shipment free? Would I be allowed
.o sell them on arrival at destination,
in another State? Are there any
'eople who buy instead of sell on
'ommission ? C. L. Howard.
Santa Rosa,' Fla.
Reply- If you will write to the Bu
reau of Markets, U. S. Department of
Agriculture, at Washington, and ask
for the names of dealers in Irish
Cobbler potatoes in Arosstook Coun
ty, Maine, you will be able to get
in toach with some dealer in them.
Yo.u cannot travel free with the
shipment, but will have to pay your
fare like any other passenger.
You will be allowei to sell your
own potatoes in any city provided
that you secure the proper license
is a salesman or auctioneer.
There are wholesale produce deal
ers in every city of any size who
will buy your crop outright either
by consignment or at auction.
Editor Ruralist-I have a splendid

keted from the groundi all wvinter, or
will frost affect them so that they
will hauve to be pitted and banked as

.Reply-You can leave the tnrnip~s
in the ground, and market them
through the winter from the fiel.
We should not try to save the tops
through.the winter, howvever, but cut
them off and turn a couple of fur
rows over the turnips to be sure that

witness the parade of the artillery

Major Robertson ani all commis
sioned officers of the corps were en
tertained by General Manager Ligon,
of the Gluck and Equinox mills, at
dlinner today. A number of business
men of the city were also among the
.uests. A smoker banquet for the
.nen of the companies is being plan
led for one night during the first
part of the week.
Nothing definite has been dlelce
mn about sending three companies
>ack to their homes. Major Robert
son was in touch wvith Governor Man
ning today over the telephone and
lhe Governor stated that he would
reach a decision early coimorrow. In
his conversation with the Governor
Major Robertson expressei it as his
opinion that it would be necessary to
retain sonme soldiers at the Equinox

onvenes. The peole of the city wvho

concur in this opinion, and it is un
