Although those may dispute it who
have not tried it, yet thousands of
others, who speak from personal experi
ence, assert that there is a permanent
cure for chronic constipation. Some
testify they were cured for as little as
fifty cents, years ago, and that the
trouble never came back on them, while
others admit they took several bottles
"before a steady cure was brought about.
The remedy referred to is Dr. Cald
well's Syrup Pepsin. It has been on
the market for over a quarter of a
century and has been popularized on its
merits, by one person telling another.
The fact that its strongest supporters
are women and elderly people the ones
most persistently constipated makes it
certain that the claims regarding it as
a permanent cure for constipation have
not been exaggerated.
It is not violent like cathartic pills,
salts or waters, but operates gently,

The discovery of a human!
hand protruding from a block,
composed of tons of concrete, in
' the Keokuk dam across the Mis
sissippi river, solved the mystery
of the disappearance of a laborer
two. weeks ago. The man's
body is imbedded in the immense
without griping and without shock to
the system. It contains tonic proper
ties that strengthen the stomach and
bowel muscles so that in time medicines
of all kinds can be dispensed with and
nature is again solely relied on.
Among the legions who testify to these
facts are J. P. Blankenship, Sharon, Tenn.,
and- Beulah I Rogers, Kosmosdale, Ky...
and they always have a bottle of it In the
house, for it is a reliable laxative for all
the family from infancy to old age.
1 Anyone wishing to make a trial of this
remedy before buying it in the regular
way of a druggist at fifty cents or ono
dollar a large bottle (family size) can
have a sample bottle sent to the home
free of charge by simply addressing Dr.
W. B. Caldwell. 405 Washington St,

That peace between the Bal

The Holstein cow Sadie Vale Korn
dyke, owned by a dairyman of the Dis
trict or Columbia, recently made a rec
ord of G55 pounds of milk in seven
days, from .which 3G.20 pounds of but

dots not surpass, the world's record
for a week's performance.
The United States has the past sea
son produced the largest corn crop in
Its history, amounting to nearly 3,000.
000,000 bushels. The job of getting
this crop cribbed is a herculean task
and a costly one as well, with husk

cents a bushel, with board and lodging
It is reported that 720,000 acres of
tillable land in the state of New York
have been withdrawn from cultivation
since 1000. This fact is given by the
Automobile Trade league as a reason
for the making of better highways, it
being its contention that good roads
would put such farms nearer good
markets and at the same time benefit
the users of autos.
One of the marvelous natural provi
sions in plant life, seen in the case of
house plants, fruit and shade trees,
are the dormant buds. These remain
in embryo, as it were, awaiting heavy
pruning or injury to the tree before
they awake to life. Checked in the
above ways, the sap of plant or tree
exerts a pressure which awakes these
dormant buds to life.
In a county not far from where the
writer lives there have been taken out
over 1,500 hunters' licenses this season.
With cottontails about the only species
of game in the county, it looks as if
these rodents were in for a fearful
killing. It will be a matter of con
gratulation if this horde of Nimrods,
finding rabbits scarce, do not kill
hawks and owls of useful species,
which are among the best friends the
farmer and gardener have.
Now and then old rats become very
cautious and will not touch the bait on
a trap on which they can smell the,
scent of the human. If any of our
readers have such a proposition on
their hands they would do well to get
a brand new trap and put a new pair
of cotton ilannel gloves on when they
bait it. A very tempting bait for such
rats is fresh meat, and the piece used
should be fastened on to the tongue of
the trap with a rubber baud or piece
Many a farmer who has worked hard
during his early and middle life and
has earned a competence,, so that he
no longer needs to stay in the tread
mill to keep the wolf from gnawing
the doorknob off, makes the very seri
ous mistake of moving to town and
doing largely nothing. This quitting
work on high feed (for he usually
keeps his hearty appetite) has been
responsible for the sending of more
retired farmers to an untimely grave
between the aces of sixty and sixty

One of the big leaks on many farms
which are liable to be short from the
standpoint of both soil humus and fer
tility is in the loss of a large per cent
of the value of the liquid manures
through careless handling. The straw
should be returned to the land that j
produced it, and there is no, way of
doing this tint is so good as iii the
shape of bedding used generously for
the definite purpose of absorbing the
liquid manures. The soil is in great
need of these two byproducts, and the
good farm manager will see to it that
both are returned to it with as little
loss as possible.
Acting on the order of the depart
ment of agriculture recently promul
gated, agents of the department a
short time since seized 200 sacks of
German potatoes that had been re
ceived by a Now York importer. At
the conclusion of the trial the federal
judge having the case in charge order
ed the tubers condemned and destroy
ed. It is calculated to arouse our sense
of American self respect that at last,
after many years, there is a federal law
in operation which makes it possible
to prevent the importation from other
countries of diseased fruits, vegeta
bles and nursery stock.
The shipment of Christmas trees
from the" New England states, with
the exception of Vermont, has been
prohibited by the department of agri
culture in order to prevent the spread
of the gypsy and browntail moths, two
of the worst insect pests with which
horticultural interests have to contend.
This order prohibiting shipment is
made under the law passed by con
gress at its last session, which also
enables the department to place an em
bargo on the shipment of fruit, flow
ers and nursery stock from foreign
countries where noxious pests of one
kind and another prevail.
An Illinois physician, in a letter to
au eastern agricultural paper, reports
that after an experience with treating
Ivy poisoning covering a period of
more than forty years he has found ?a
the coal tar product, creolin, an ef
fective remedy for the poison. His
method of application Is to dilute "tjie
treolin to about 5 per cent strength,
then cover the affected parts with ab
sorbent cotton, saturating the cotton
well. The treated portions should be
wrapped with a cloth to prevent a tGo
rapid evaporation of the creolin solu
tion. In a couple of hours more of
the solution should be poured on. This
physician also reports that a 2 or 3
per cent solution of the same chemical
is excellent in the treatment of buxaa
of any kind.
