Porto Rico's New Wonder.
From far away Porto Rico come re
ports of a wonderful new discovery that
is believed will vastly benefit the people.
Ramon T. Marchau, of Barceloneta,
writes "-Dr. King's New Discovery is do
ing splendid work here. It cared me
about five times of terrible coughs and
colts, also my brother of a severe cold in
his chest and more than 20 others, who
used it on my advlca. We hope this great
medicine will yet be sold in every drug
store in P,,rto Rico." For throat and
and lung troubles it has no equal. A
trial will convince you of its merit. 5oc
and $1. Trial bottle free. Guaranteed
by all druggists.
Dr. Milton P. Tilly has moved
to St. Martinville. Dr. Tilly had
built up quite an extensive prac

a larger field in St. Martinville

Women As Farmers.
N. o. Item.
Mrs. Dodd, of El Paso, declares
The Bufftlo Times, has a farm of
225 acres on which she raises
onions and alfalfa. The first year
she cleared $32,000 profit on 70
acres of ,onions, and for her first
shipment of ouious this year there
came in return a check for $1140.
All of lhe money in farming is
not reserved for men by any means.
Onion raising isto not the most poe
tic v,cation in the world, but it
woull seem to be a good means of
making a living for a woman.
Then, there are many other ways
in which a woman with a good
patch of giound and a home in the
country can turn an honest penny.
Among these may be mentioned,
canning and preserv ng, flower
raising, if near a city, small fruit
raising, and poultry-farming. Any
one of these provides a means of
making a living that is not beyond
the strength and ability of any
enterprisiug woman. And Louisi.
ana, bIy the way, is a good place
for any wormau who longs for the
open air anti a balmy climate to
buy a patch and settle down.
