You will never find our I5oc
tor out. He is here to give
advice without charge to those
who need him -to those who
don't, sometimes. He doesn't
always recommend the Ayer
medicines, because the Ayer
medicines are not "cure-ails."
Perhaps if we. tear a leaf
from his correspondence it will
show you what we mean. Here
is a letter which came last
" DEAR DR. AYa :
I want your advice for my little boy.
He is getting very thin. lie has no appe
tite. ie is fifteen years old. When he
was four years old he had lung fever, but
his health was good until two years ago.
Since then he is failing fast. The doctors
here say he has the bronchitis. lie spits
all the time awful bad. The spits are big,
thick, and white. Yours truly,
Mrs. MARGARET MURPHY,
March So, t9oo. Kinbrae, Minn."
And this is the way the Doc
tor answered Mrs. Murphy:
" We enclose our book on The Throat
and Lungs, in which we trust you will find
just the information you desire.
"You should begin at once the use of
this Cherry Pectoral for your son, giving
it in moderate doses. Then procure some
good preparation' of cod-liver oil, as
Scott's Emulsion, and give him that, as
well. Pay particular attention to his diet,
giving him such nourishing foods as rare
steak, lamb chops, good milk, eggs, etc.
Above all, keep him out of doors all that
the weather permits. There is nothing
that will do him more good than plenty of
fresh air. Let him live out of doom all
that is possible. By carrying out these
general suggestions we shall hope to hear
soon that your son is improving in every
way. Very truly yours,
April 5, 19oo. J. C. AYaL."
You see, it wasn't only the
Ayer medicines that we recom
mended. The first idea of the
Doctor was to cure that boy.
The result is told in this letter:
"DaAa DR. AvYa:
Sy little boy has improved so much
since I received your advice that I want to
write and tell you how thankful I am.
"When I first wrote you, on March
o, he only weighed 50 pounds, but now
Sweighs 82 pounds; and all this gain
since the 8th of April, when I first began
to follow your directions.
SPlease let me thank you again for what
you have done for my boy
July 17, 19o00. MARGARET MURPHY."
Perhaps it was the cod
liver oil; perhaps it was the
Cherry Pectoral. Probably it
was both. But, more than
either, it was the good, sound
advice the Doctor gave in the
first place. We are here to
erve you in just the same way,
nd we will tell you the medi
ine for your case or tell you
hat medicines to avoid.
Five out often of our cor
respondents need a doctor
rather than a prepared medi
cine, and we tell them so. If
the doctors only knew it, we

The fearful slaughter of trespassers

missing, there was roomn for a very
pretty quarrel, until it was agreed to
let the old cows decide it The three
a were turned together in a pasture.

askance at the young one, and after a
little made a rush at her as if to
bear her to her knees. But as they

ster, who stood tossing her horns de

wheeled, butted the other in the flank,
sent her reeling, sniffed gently at the
stray, then began to lick her on the
neck and brisket, just as she licked
her own new calf. The demonstra

hands on it, and the stray dun went
home with her mother.
Whether from instinct or calcula

POTASH BETTER THAN COLD.
A Mine of It Would Be Richer Thsa
Dr. Edward Atkinson of Boston has
thrown another bombshell among the
scientists gathered at Columbia uni
versity, says the New York Herald.
The doctor is an insatiable investiga
tor and has an interest in practical
problems. He presents them to scien
tific thinkers in a way that rudely
awakens them from their theorizing.
The geologists were discussing rare
"Where is the potash of the United
States?" asked the doctor. "The
world now depends for its entire sup
ply upon a single mine in Saxony, and
yet there should be vast de
posits of that mineral in the
alkaline and salt plains of this
country. Where are they? It
is the duty of geologists to find them.
When they are discovered the geolo
gists to find them will confer a
greater blessing upon this country
than they would by unearthening all
the gold and silver in the world."
Dr. Atkinson. in talking of this sub
ject, said that some years ago he had
turned his attention to the subject of
nutrition. lie found that the necess
ary element of nitrogen is contained in
the atmosphere in the proportion of
77 per centum, and that it is disso
ciated from the atmosphere only
through the processes of life, death
and decomposition. The nitrogen is
absolutely necessary. It is being
rapidly exhausted from the soil, re
spiting in such inpoverished lands
that crop# (-an no longer be produced.
The world will be in want of food
_ by 1930, Sir William Crookes prophe
sled a few years ago, when he ob
served this rapid waste of nitrogen,
and did not see where a new supply
was to (come from. But what the
great British scientist did not see was
seen by the small "pea vine" farmers
of the southern states. Comiwlled to
get a living out of exhausted soil, they
sought a means of enrichling it. They
finally hit upon the "pea vine," re
generated their lands, saved them
selves, and camle to the relief of
science, which soon discovered the
reason for the thing.
The pea vine, the buckwheat, the
bean-all leguminus plants- are breed
ing places for the kind of bacteria that
dissociate the nitrogen from the at
mosphere, and, dying, beneath it as
a rich legacy to the earth, transmut
ing an impoverished soil into the fer
J tility of the Nile Valley.
Crookes said the wheat eaters would
have no wheat to eat by 1930. The
southern "pea vine farmer" says he
shall have wheat to eat so long as
the earth shall be here to give forth
l "Some one asked me 10 years ago,"
Ssaid Dr. Atkinson, "what was the
e next great discovery of science that
was needed; and I replied, 'a cheap
Ssource of nitrogen.' Bacteria and the
southern farmer have solved that
Sproblem; and the great reservoir of the
atmosphere is now available, in conm
bination with phosphates and potash,
Sto maintain the perpetual fertility of
Phosphate has already been found,
Saccording to Dr. Atkinson, in suf
a cient quantity in the coast lands of
I South Carolina, Florida and Georgia,
n and in Tennessee to last at least a
- century. Potash is now the problem
that agriculture must face.
All the potash of the world, he said,
is now supplied by a mine at Stoss
furt, Saxony, Germany. This was
discovered by accident. There was a
mine there, and when it
was exhausted the owners thought
they could find more salt by
Sboring deeper. They bored, throwing
h the borings to one side as trash.
A chemist wanderi-d by, was attract
e ed by the looks of some of the borings,
. analyzed them and discovered that
. they were rich in potassium. The
. diggers had unwittingly found a mine
r far richer than Potosi, Golconda or
. El Dorado.
s Dr. Atkinsou thinks that this hls
t tory will be repeated in the west. He
is said that lie thinks potash should be
r found, by deep borings, in the neigh
. borhood of those springs of the west,
s which contain so much potassium that
d ranchers have to keep their cattle
.1 from drinking their waters. It may
e also be foundl in all that region extend

in the blood, foul breath, and awful pains
in the back of the head with a loathing
and bad feeling for all that is good in life.
Don't care how rich or poor you are, ou
can't be well if you have bowel trouble,
you will be regular if you take CASCA

it like candy and it will work gently while
you sleep. It cures; that means it strength

Tasteless Chill Tonic
Is the standard prescription of America for
Malaria, Chills and Fever.
How often do you hear imitators say "Our
medicine is just as good as Grove's" or "It is
better than Grove's". Do not be satisfied
with the "just as goods". There are no ,"just
as goods"-Grove's is the best as such com
parisons admit-Grove's is many times supe
rior both in merit and popularity to any other
chill preparation manufactured, and is the
only chill cure sold to jobbers in car load
lots. Every druggist in the malarial sections
of the United States and Cuba sells Grove's
on a No cure, No pay, basis. Price 50 cents.
Grove's Tonic broke up a io days' spell of fever which
a physician thought would last several weeks.
"During my recent illness your Chill Tonic proved of
beneficial effect-it being highly endorsed by my family phy
sician. 3 bottles broke up a io days' spell of fever which at
first was thought by the doctor would last for several weeks.
Your excellent remedy is having a tremendous sale through
out this section, more so than all other Chill Tonics combined,
as I am informed by various druggists."
