When a woman suffering from some form of feminine
disorder is told that an operation is necessary, it of course
The very thought of the hospital operating table and the
surgeon's knife strikes terror to her heart, and no wonder.
It is quite true that some of these troubles may reach a stage
where an operation is the- only resource, but thousands of
women have avoided the necessity of an operation by taking
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. This fact is
attested by the grateful letters they write to us after their
health has been restored.

Next to Nothing a Year
The buyers for the big tobacco com
panies are quoted as saying 6 cents a
pound average is as much as they can
afford to pay for the 1912 crop. Let us
sec what that means:
One man can grow four acres of tobac
co. The average yield is approximately
Sob pounds to the acre a season like the
The farmer produces about 3,200 pounds
on these four acres, half of which must
be deducted for the use of the land, barn
room, team, tools and incidentals.
The man who grows tobacco on his
own laud must figure the deduction the
same as the renter, so the estimate is ap
plicable to all.
At 6 cents a pound a one-man crop
brings $192. Half of that sum is $96.
So, you see, the man who cultivates 4
acres and sells it for 6 cents a pound gets
less than Jioo for his year's work. Hen

more we learn of mushrooms, the more
it becomes apparent that they are
scarcely different as regardB dietary
