- A nervous, irritable mother, often on the verge of hysterics, is
unfit to care for children; it ruins a child's disposition and reacts
upon herself. The trouble between children and their mothers
too often is due to the fact that the mother has some female
weakness, and she is entirely unfit to bear the strain upon her nerves
that governing a child involves ; it is impossible for her to do anything
calmly. Site cannot help it, as her condition is due to suffering and
shattered nerves caused by some derangement of the uterine system
with backache, headache, and all kinds of pain, and she is on the verge
of nervous prostration.
SVhen a mother finds that she cannot be calm and quiet "with her
children, she may be sure that her condition needs attention, and she can
not do better than to take Lytlia E. Pinkliam's Vegetable Compound.
This medicine "will build up her system, strengthen her nerves, and
enable her to calmly handle a disobedient child "without a scene. The
children will soon realize the difference, and seeing their mother quiet,
will themselves become quiet.
Mrs. May Brown, of Chicago, Ill.f says:
" Dear Mrs. Pixkham : 4 Honor to whom
honor is due,' and you deserve both the thanks
and honor of the mothers of America whom you
have so blersedlv helped and benefited. I ha'vo
used iiyaia IS. JL'mkiiam's vegetable Com
pound when 1 would feel run-down, nervous
and irritable, or have any of the aches' and pains
which but few women escape, and I have found
that it relieved me at once and gave me new
strength. Several ladies, members of our Lit
erary Union, speak in the highest praise of your
Vegetable Compound, as they have been cured
from serious female troubles. One lady,
who thought she must submit to an opera
tion, was cured without using anj-thing in
the world but Lijdia E.Pinkham's Vege
table Compound and Sanative Wash.
You have hosts of friends in Chicago, and
if you came to visit our city we would delight to do
you honor. Gratefully yours, Mrs. May Brows, 57 Grant Place, Chicago, 111.
How Mrs. Pinkham Helped Mrs. McKinny.
" Deas Pijtxham : I feel it my duty to write and let you know the
good you sn-W your Vegetable Compound are doing. I had been sick ever since
my first lby was born, and at the birth of my second, my doctor, as well as
myself tnought I should never live through it. After that menstruation never
came regular, and when it came I suffered terribly. I also had womb and
ovarian trouble. A friend pf my husband's advised him to get Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound for me. At first I had no faith in it,
but now nothing could induce mo to be without it. Menstruation has become
regular, and I feel like a new woman. Your medicine is a God-send to suffer
ing women. I hope this letter will lead others to try Lydia E. Pinkhan's
Vegetable Compound. Yours truly, Mrs. Mildred McKixny, 28 Pearl
St., San Francisco, Cal." (March 16, 1001).

A TALK ABOUT ONIONS.
profit of the Crop Depend Upon
Sound Seed and Rapid Opera-
tion in Ilarveatlniy.
If we have had the right seed, a
g'ood season, and if our crop was
sown just right for thickness there
should be but few scallions and the
whole crop should ripen at the same
time. About September 1 it should
be ready for the harvest. By all
means leave them until you can pull
the tops off with the fingers without
much effect. The tools necessary for
the harvest in the old way are the
hands only. The tools used by me
are a wheel hoe with a circular cut
ter, fine toothed wooden rake, plenty
of crates, two strong men and for a
plat of one acre about ten boys.
CRATE FOR HANDLING ONIONS.
With these appliances and help I
should expect to harvest in one day a
crop of from 700 to 1,000 bushels.
My crates are made from one-half
inch lumber, of these dimensions
IS inches long-, IS inches high and 12
inches through, inside measurements.
They are made thus: the ends which
are two strips 2U inches wade are
laid 12 inches' apart on iron plates.
Take cross strips 12 inches long and
any width handy from to 4
inches, have nails just long enough to
go through and clinch well, and nail
your strips on, leaing a space, be
tween each strip of one inch, except
the top space which make l'i inches,
for here is where you will grip Ihe
crate in handling. Nail well.
Xail on for side and bottom pieces.
any narrow width you choose, leaving
the same spaces on sides as recom
mended for the ends. The bottom
spaces should be about three-fourths
of an inch. This completes yout
crate, as shown in the cut, and if it
has been properly put together and
well nailed vou will have a firm and
inflexible crate which wall last for
years and will stand a Tot of banging.
Mine have been in'use for ten years
and are in fairly good condition yet.
They have been lent to mv customers
and have had lots of hard usage.
These crates are very useful not
only in the onion harvest, but the
handiest, article vou ever saw for
harvesting potatoes, apple, root crops
of all kinds, cabbage, and in fact use
ful at all times am! all seasons. Thev
hold exactly '., bushels even full.
They weigh empty from seven to ten
pounds; when full of onions, potatoes
or apples from 8.5 to 100 pounds.
Three of them put into a common mar
ket wagon endwise just fit the body.

- TILLING THE VINEYARD.
In Many IiiMtancen the I'loir Should
lie He-ir'lHced h- Some- Lena
Some vineyardists get through the
season by plowing actually plowing
their vineyards but tw ice. And it is my
opinion that often when the plowing is
going on the vines are having a hard
time! I cannot see the virtue of the
heroic pruning which the plow per
forms. This usually occurs at a time
when the vine needs all its- energies for
the production of flowers and wood.
The roots are often ruthlessly cul and
mutilated by the tardy plowman who
defers the work until the first of June
and is then obliged to plow deep in or
der o cover the weeds. The finishing
:ouches are put on-with the .grape-hoe
an excellent implement w lien directed
with skill and judgment, but on occa
sion quite as destructive as the plow.
I believe that vineyards would be im
proved; on the whole, by shallower til
lage than is generally in vogue. I be
lieve that the spring tooth, -the dia
mond shovel and Ihe disk harrow may
often replace the plow w ith advantage.
It is a question of being beforehanded.
Do not wait till a plow is needed to
turn the weeds under. Stir the soil
early in the spring and stir it often. Of
course wet seasons like last year im
pose cert a in limitations. Vary the kind
of tillage then to met the enemy, if
there be one, at his w eakest point. But
till shallow and often. It is not a ques
tion of weeds. It is largely a question
of plant-food as affected by tillage.
My observation is that many grow
ers cease tiling too early in the sum
mer. The drier -the season- the more
actively should thecultivator be driven
and the longer should it be kept going.
As to kinds of cultivating imple
ments,' the grape grower must settle
this quesfion for himself Prof. John
Craig, in Farmers' Voice.

PROMINENT PHYSICIANS PRESCRIBE PE-RD-NA.
Dr. M. C. Gee, of San Francisco, Says,
Pe-ru-na is of Especial Bene
fit to Women."
Peruna is able to cure catarrh wher
ever it may be located by its direct
action upon the mucous membranes
Catarrh means inflamed mucous mem
branes. Peruna acts at once to cleanse
and invigorate the catarrhal condition
of the mucous membrane no matter
where it may occur in the body. lt
action is the same on the mucous lining"
of the nose as on the mucotis lining of
the bowels. It cures the catarrhal in
flammation wherever it may occur.
Dr. R. Robbins, Muskogee, I. T.
'Terunaisthe best medicine I know
of for cough and to strengthen a weak
stomach and to give appetite. Besid
prescribing it forcatarrh, 1 have ordered
it for weak and debilitated people, and
have not had a patient but said it helped
him. It is an excellent medicine and
it fits so many cases.
'l have a large practice, and have a
chance to prescribe your Peruna. I
hope j-ou may live long to do good to
the sick and suffering."
We say Peruna cures catarrh. Th
people say Peruna cures catarrh. Promi
nent men and women all over the
United States from Maine to California
do not hesitate to come out in publio
print to say that Peruna is what it is
recommended to be, an internal, aya
temic catarrh remedy that cures catarrh,
wherever it may be located.
Dr. M. C. Gee's Experience.
Robert R. Roberts, M
ington, D. C, writes:
"Through my own experience
as well as that of many of toy
friends and acquaintances who
have been cured or relieved of ca
tarrh by the use of Hartman's
Peruna, I can confidently recom-
i mend It to those suffering from
f such disorders, and have no hesl
4 tation in prescribing It to my pa-
tlents." Robert R. Roberts.
A CONSTANTLY increasing number
of physicians prescribe Peruna in
their regular practice. It has
proven its merits so thoroughly that
even the doctors have overcome their
prejudice agaiust so called patent medi
cines and recommend it t o their patients.
Peruna occupies a unique position in
medical science. It is the only internal
systemic catarrh remedy known to the
medical profession today. Catarrh, as
every one will admit, is the cause of one
half the diseases which afflict mankind.
Catarrh and catarrhal diseases afflict
one-half of the people of United States.
F. II. Brand, M. D., of Mokena, 111.,
uses Peruna i u his practice. The follow
ing case is an example of the success he
has through the use of Peruna for ca
tarrh. Dr. Brand says: "Mrs. 'C.,' age 28,
had been a sufferer from catarrh for the
past seven years; could not hear plain
and had watery eyes. She came to me
almost a physical "wreck. She had tried
the Copcland cures and various other
so-called specialists, and had derived no
benefit from them. She told me she did
not want to spend any more money on
unless I could assure her
"I put her on Pe
runa and told her
to como back in

effects were won-

"This is onlj' one case of the many I
have treated with your valuable medi
cine." F. II. Brand". M. D.
Catarrh may invade any organ of the
body; may destroy auy function of the
body. It most commonly attacks the
head, nose and throat, but thousands
upon thousands of cases of catarrh of
the lungs, stomach, kidneys, bladder
and other pel vie organs have been cured
F. H. Brand, M. D.
Dr. M. C. Gee is one of the physicians
who endorse Peruna. In a letter written
from 513 Jones street, San Francisco,
Cal., he says:
There Is a general objection on tb.9
part of the practicing physician to md
vocate patent medicines. But whetr
any one medicine cures hundreds ot
people, It demonstrates its owa value
and does not need the endorsement ot
"Peruna has performed so many
wonderful cures in San Francisco thai
I am convinced that It Is a. valuable
remedy. I have frequently advised Its
use for women, as I find It Insures
regular and painless menstruation,
cures leucorrhceaand o varlan troubles,
and builds up the entire system. I also
consider It one ot the finest catarrh
remedies I know of. I heartily endoraa
your medicine. "M. C. Qee, At. D.
Women are especially liable to pelvia
catarrh, female weakness as it is com
monly called. F.specially v the first
few weeks of warm weather do the dis-N
agreeable symptomsof female weakness
make themselves apparent. In crisp,
cold weat her chronic sufferers with pel
vic catrrrh do not feel so persistently tho
debilitating effects of the drain upon
the system, but at the approach of
summer with its lassitude and tired
feelings, the sufferer with pelvic catarrh
feels the need of a strengthening tonic,
Peruna is not only the best spring
tonic for such cases but if persisted in
will effect a complete cure. Write for a
copy of "Health and Beauty," written
especially for women by Dr. Hartmaii.
If you want to read of some cures also,
write for a copy of " Facts and Faces."
That will surely convince j'ou that our
claims are valid.
If you do not derive prompt and satis
factory results from the use of -Peruna,
write at once to Dr. Hartman, giving a
full statement of your case and he will
be pleased to give you his valuable ad

Is Pure, Rich, Strong, Vigorous Blood.
Pure blood is essential to an active mind, strong body and bold lieart.
Not only is it necessary in a trial of physical strength, but equally so in the
mighty struggle for worldly wealth. The victim of impure blood is gener
ally half-sick, lacks spirit and energy, and is unable to stand the strain of
the contest besides this, he is in constant danger of contracting some life
threatening disease. To have pure blood, the kidneys, liver, stomach and
bowels must be free from obstructions and strong in the performance of their
functions. This desirable condition can be secured and maintained through
the use of PRICKLY ASH BITTERS, the 4 World-Celebrated' system
cleanser and blood purifier. A short course with this great remedy vitalizes
the blood and puts the system into prime condition. Invigorates the body,
promotes good appetite, restful sleep and cheerful spirits. As a household

flatulence, constipation and for keeping the system in order it is invaluable.
