; BEAUTY OF BABBLING BROOK
Every Farm ShowW Have One of
TMe Pretty Streams Rtmnlnf
- Throkfh It Meaefewe.
I have found it at last the thing
f have been dreaming about during
all these years of city bondage4; the
thing that opena up vistas of bucolic
beauty and benediction; a riftbf
blue sky through tho smudge ' and
Bmoko of tho strenuous strife 1 And
it has everything on it, except the
brook murmuring lazily through the
meadows and kicking up its silver
heels over pebbled pathways.- But
you can't have everything bh a small
farm that someone olse laid out in
the days when city dwellers were not
looking for babbling brooks. If I
had had the parcelling out of farms,
I would have put a "laughing brook"
somewhere on each one, for tho pink
footed ducks to frolic in and snap
their long bills over juicy, sbugs and
worms. Perhaps the great and good
Husbandman did not liave enough
brooks to go 'round, and I must
worry along without a brook. Per
haps I will make one some' of these
days. In the meantime, I advise all
my neighbors who lwve.. gabbling
brooks to take them in at" night.

These are, the kind of statements

from a resident. of this locality.

Whenever I have had occasion to use
them I have been benefited. I feel
that I am doing nothing, more than
my duty in publicly recommending
this preparation. Doan's Kidney

normal condition, regulated the kid

my back, in fact improved my
health. I obtained this remedy and

The exact proportions of sand and
clay for making tho best Band-clay
road cannot, bo stated, as tho propor
tions vary with the character of tho
sand, according to its sharpness, per
centage of foreign material and size
of grains. Approximately, there is In
a sand-clay road about eighty per
cent sand and twenty per cent. clay.
One simple means of determining tho
theoretical amount of pure clay that
should bo added to any sand that is to
bo used In tho construction of a sand
clay road is to nil a glass tumbler
brlmfull with t,ho Bandthat Is to bo
used and then fill a similar tumbler
with water; pour tho water carefully
pnto the sand until the water comes
flush with the' surface, which will
mean that all tho volda between the
grains of sand are now filled with wa
