manently cured of monthly pains by taking
Lydia E Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
Z0 " Young "Women: I had frequent headaches of a severe nature,
dark spots before my eyes, and at my menstrual periods I suffered
untold agony. A member of the lodge advised me to try !Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, but I only scorned good advice and
felt that my case was hopeless, but she kept at me until I bought a
bottle and started taking it. I soon had the best reason in the world to
change my opinion of the medicine, as each day my health improved, and
finally I Tvas entirely without pain at my menstruation periods. I am most
grateful." Kettle Blackmore, 28 Central Ave., Minneapolis, ilinn.
ro quickly and permanently overcome by Lydia K. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound. The above letter is only one of hundreds of
thousands which prove this statement to be a fact. Menstruation
is a severe strain on a woman's vitality, if it is painful something
is wrong1. Jon't take narcotics to deaden the pain, but remove
the cause perhaps it is caused by irregularity or womb displace
ments, or the development of a- tumor. "Whatever it is, Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound is guaranteed to cure it.
If there is anything1 about your case about which you would like special
advice, write freely to Mrs. Pinkham. She will treat your letter as strictly

they all said they could not help her.
Ater taking one box of Dodd's Kidney
Pills, she has not had one bad spell. Of
course, we continued the treatment un
til she had used in all about a dozen
boxes, and we still give them to her oc
casionally, when she is not feeling well.
Dodd's Kidney Pills are certainly the best
medicine for growing girls."

NEAT NESTS FOR PIGEONS.
Vseful Suggestions and Diagram Sup
plied by United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.
Nesting places for pigeons can be
made as follows: Incn boards 12 inches
wide, with parallel cross cleats (from
trips one inch square) nailed on nine
inches apart, one set upright 12 inches
apart (ia the clear), with edges against
the partition and securely nailed at
top and bottom. These boards extend
from floor to roof, and. when in posi
tion boards 12 inches square of inch
tuff are cut and placed on the cleats
NESTING PLACES FOR PIGEONS.
to form the floors of the nest boxes,
thus making little homes for the
pigeons nine inches high with a floor
12 inches square. The sliding floor of
each box furnishes an easy method of
removal for cleaning. Each pen con
tains two sets of nest boxes, one
against each partition, containing 60
boxes, or 120 in all, supplying each pair
of birds with two nesting places, with
20 to spare. The bottom of the lowest
box Is 15 inches from the floor. Nests
should not be placed directly on the
floor if possible to avoid it. Some
pairs will persistently build on the
floor, in which case it may be best to
humor them and make no attempt to
compel them to nest elsewhere.
DO NOT GIVE UP TRYING.
liaising Turkeys Is Not Always a
Success, But When It Is the
Work Pays Well.
An enthusiastic Missouri turkey
raiser has this to say in the Kansas
We often hear this remark: "I can't
raise turkeys, they all die."
This may be true in certain cases.
There are some things to be consid
ered, and the most difficult obstacle to
overcome is freeing them from lice.
My remedy for this is as follows: Take
lard (hog's fat) and a few drops of
carbolic acid and mix well, and when
turkeys are 24 hours' old put just a
little of this on each wing flight, as
this is where the lice live mostly on
turkeys; and put a little on top of each
head. Also use this on the mother hen,
but use sparingly on both mother and
Place them in a pen in the shade and
have the pen 12x12 feet and on nice,
clean grass; move every three days.
Feed young turkeys on hard-boiled
eggs. Just a little' at each time, and five
to six times daily, and give fresh, clean
water at each meal. As they get older,
increase the feed, and grease three
times a week; when large enough, let
them go free with the mother, but con
tinue greasing them until two months
old and feed three times daily.
If you have been one of those unfor
tunate turkey raisers, do not give up
trying: try again. They require close
attention until they are a few weeks
old, but after that they soon grow into
many dollars for you.
How Eggs Travel Around.
A New York broker, says the Pro
duce News, recently received a car of
California eggs, 400 cases, which he
sold at 30 cents a dozen. Strictly speak
ing, there were not California eggs
They were bought in Kansas in the
spring, shipped to the coast and stored
The New York prices were so attrac
tive that the eggs were shipped first
to Chicago and then to New York. The
freight on these eggs was quite a little
item, amounting to $424. This hardly
cuts much figure when it is understood
that the 400 cases brought $3,600. Eggs
are breaking all records this year. Get
ting ?3,600 for a car of storage eggs is
something remarkable. It would be in
teresting to know if these eggs reached
the consumer as "strictly fresh," and
what their quality proved to be.
Feeding the Breeding Pigs.
Pigs that are to be used for breed
ing should be kept separate from those
that are to be prepared for market,
at leat. after the first few years
of their lives. Care must be taken to
give a well-balanced ration, which will
give a good muscular development and
will at the same time give enough car
bon in various forms to keep up the
energy of the body. They should have
a ration lhat is largely vegetable and
therefore bulky. Some grain should be
given, but not enough to render the
whole ration too concenterated. Farm
When the Bees Are Moved.
We have had satisfactory results in
moving bees about a quarter of a mile.
The hive was closed with wire cloth,
before sunrise, at the same time giving
smoke and a good shaking; then moved
to new quarters, on the way striking
the hive occasionally with a stick so as
to frighten them thoroughly and cause
them to fill themselves with honey and
finally bumped them down on new
star d. Very few bees returned to the
old stand. This idea was taken from
an old number of the Australian Bee
Separate the Seeds Now.
If the fowls are running together,
this is the time to separate them if
eggs from pure breeds are desired for
hatching. It will do no harm to allow
birds of different breeds to be together
if senaration is made early in the sea
son. Economy of food requires that all
unprofitable members of the flock be
removed, so as to give the others more
roon, for which reason, after the
hatching season is over, the n ales
shoubi be first gotten rid of. Farm

HOW TO TRAIN THE COLTS.
Gentle Touches Here and There and
Kind Words Always Bring Sat-
Be firm, but gentle; have patience; a
colt cannot learn his A, B, C's at one
time any more than the children can.
It is by repetition that he learns and
acts well. Allow no teasing whatever,
unless you want a vicious animal. Keep
the animal always under control when
breaking, for by breaking away he is
liable to become spoilt. It is not on
account of the strength of the colt that
he gets away, but because he catches the
trainer napping not watching his busi
ness and takes advantage of this to
gain his liberty. If one works with his
colt when he feeds, currying and rub
bing it often, it will not be any trouble
to catch, but the wild one needs to be
caught in the stocks. Curry and make
it gentle while in the stocks. Gently
slip on a halter or stout bridle with a
long lead rope or rein. Pass this rein
under the jaw through both rings of the
bit. Take the colt out and lead it around
for a few minutes; gently put on gears
and lead him around as before, and,
when he has learned this well, hitch to a
post or light log. Of course, you must
be equal to the occasion and not let it
run away when it tries to. If large
enough, hitch to a plow or wagon beside
an old soldier. Repeat these lessons
often rainy days are right for this
work if a large shed can be used. I
worked and trained an ugly fellow once,
without aid, by passing the long rope
around a center post in the shed in such
a manner as to lead and atthesame time
walk behind and drive. This was easy
and I soon had the wire edge worn off.
THE POISON IN SORGHUM.
It Is Known as Hydrocyanic Aeid and
Is One of the Deadliest Sub
We often hear of stock being poi
soned by eating green sorghum plants,
especially the second growth. The
Journal of the Chemical Society of
London, Eng., published an article
by J. C. Brunnish, which throws some
light upon the subject. Hydrocyanic
acid is one of the most deadly poison3
known and it has been found in small
quantities in sorghum and other
plants, gradually diminishing, as a
rule a3 the plants grow older. It is
said to be impossible to state just
exactly when the plants become safe
for use, but as a rule it may be as
sumed that sorghum is fit for fodder
as soon as the seediare fully devel
oped. Drying sorghum does not re
move the hydrocyanic acid. The
amount of poison appears to be in
creased by the use of heavy nitro
genous fertilizers. A certain amount
of the poison was found in corn in
various stages until the formation of
the cobs, but never in dangerous quan
tities. The author recommends that all
forage plants related to sorghum
should be used with discretion in the
green or dried state and should not be
fed in an immature stage or to ani
mals which have fasted for a long

small. In winter, however, it is cheap

I was almost past going. I commenced
to use Feruna according to your instruc
