States has 67 per cent of that

dollars represents the amount
invested. Direct communication

I knew a man, who held one
thousand bushels of wheat in his
bin, waiting for a good Drice. He
was offered one dollar per bushel
in March, but it must be delivered
at once. As the loads were so
bad he could not deliver it. When
he finally got the wheat to market
it brought sixty cents per bu&bel.
In this case the bad roads iost
him four hundred dollars. Now
he is for good roads; before this
he opposed them. Even it you
don't have a similar case to this
one, you can't haul as much over
the roads. You will have lo pay
more for hauling and you can't
get it hauled when you want it
done. So you see it is a money

THE SCOURGE OF
Cost the hog raiser millions of dollars last yene and nothing short of vaccination
seemed to offer the slightest, promise o fac lire.
Prevention, however, is the logical solution of the question. Dr. Hess. (I.n . D.V.S.)
has always maintained that by giving Dr. Hess Stock Tonic to tone up and strengthen every
organ in the system, to regulate tin bowels, liver and kidneys, expel worms ; and also thoroughly
disinfect the premises, sleeping quarter and runs with Dr. Hess Dip and Disinfectant, would
prevent an outbreak of this disease.
Read what one of the big hog raisers in the country says :
During 1911 our country was visited by one of the worst hog plagues ever known.
We fed Dr Hess Stock ".'onic, and only lost two head out of a herd of two hundred and
ten." Alex. Nevius, Modesta, 111.
Also note what bulletin No. 182 of the Kansas State College says
about preventing Hog Cholera:
"When we recall the conditions which favor the disease and the manner in which its infection
takes place, it will be set i that feeding and earing of hog has much to do with the prevention of the
Cholera. Premises shont be cleaned and disuifected regularly. The hogs themselves should be dipped
every few weeks. Maintaining these conditions helps to keep np the vitality of the hog and in this way
troublss of all kinds are warded off. To aid digestion and circulation and to prevent worms, the bulletin
reeommeuds a formula of "Wood charcoal, Sulphur, Salt, Sodium Bicarhonate Sodium Sulphate, Sodium
Hyposulphate and Black Antim
This formula given in tablespoonful doses would undoubtedly be benefical but would cost the hog raiser about
10c per pound. Now compare this with the formula for Dr. Hess Stock Tonic which is vastly superior and has stood
the test of 20 years.

This preparation is compounded by Dr. Hess, (M.D., D.V.S.) and sold to you on a written
guarantee and only costs 3c per month for the average hog. The definition of the ingredients
are taken from the United -States Dispensatory and noted medical authorities.
