"Dear Mrs. Pixkitam : It i3 with thankfulness I write that Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has been of the greatest help to
me. My work keeps me standing on my feet all day and the hou?s are
long. Some months ago it didn t seem as though I could stand it. I
would get so dreadfully tired and my back ached so I wanted to scream
with the pain. When I got home at night I was so worn out I had to
go right to bed, and I was terribly blue and downhearted. I was irregu
lar and the flow was scanty, and I was pale and had no appetite. Itold
a girl friend who was taking your medicine how I felt, and she said I
ought to take it too. So I got a bottle of Lydia E. Pinkhum's Vege
table Compound and commenced to take it. It helped me right off.
After the first few doses menstruation started and was fuller than for
Borne time. It seemed to lift a load oS me. My back . stopped aching and
I felt brighter than I had for months. I took three bottles in all. Now
I never have an aehc or pain, and I go out after work and have a good
time. I am regular and strong and am thankful to you for the change.
" I recommend Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound when
ever I hear of a girl suffering, for I know how haixl it is to work when
you leel bo sick." Mis3 Mamik Keirns, 653 9th Ave., New York City.

The hli:d of cattle to rnise Is often a
perplexing problem, but can be ns
easily settled ns nny other business
proposition. Cattle ni'e bred for spe
cial purposes. :i!id knowing the object
you h;ie l:i vh w it i. simply a ques
tion of deciding what lireed will accom
plish th:it object. The proposition Js
not so ensy fur those v. ii.) already have
cattle on band and decide W change
breeds. The- Meat bulk of cattle now
on the Southern farms are of the milk
breeds with more Jersey blood than
liny Other. The Jersey is possibly the
extreme dairy typj and corresponding
ly farthest from what is denied hi n
pure beef herd. When it is desired to
change either a pure bred, grade or
t erub herd into n beef herd it is best to
la-in with tin? bull. Decide on the
breed preferred, but a registered bull,
nnd use him exclusively in breeding all
cows for two years; then soil hlni nnd
p;et a new one of the same breed ns a
bull should never be bred to bis own
calves. Nearly all Southern cattlemen
are wedded to the idea that a cow must
be milked, aud on small farms it Is
economical to do so. Therefore it is
desirable to select a beef herd that are
lair milkers, and the Shorthorns till the
bill nicely. The dual purpose breeds,
such as the lied Tolls and Devona, may
sr.it others bitter, but for the large
farm, where tho cows are to simply
raise tlieir calves and put nil tneir iooii
into beef the Ilerefords nnd Aberdeen
Angus are ppecdally desirable. It
should be remembered that any regis
tered bull bred c:i common or grade
cows will mark three-fouvths"or more
of the calves after his type, and the
more ne differs from the cows in shape,
size and color the mere distinctly will
he ma-rk his calves. This has been
demonstrated over and over with the
black polled Angus bulls bred on the
light colored, thin horned cows so com
mon in this f-eetion. In some cases
nine-tenths of the calves come black,
have no horns and show distinctly the
thick-set. bloeky, beef type in the first
cross. Tho lJouuio Manuaru roiieu
Durhams belong in the snnii class as
Shorthorns, and have tho additional ad
vantage of being polled. Southern Cul

Those who have raised chickens know
that one of the troubles with which
they have to contend is keeping the
little ones from being drowned by the
hard anel frequent tliowers of the
spring. Where brooders are used this
trouble is obviated, but, on tho other
hand the chicks ouht to be given
6ome of the freedom of out doors as
early as posible, so that cvn brooder
raised chicks ought to have a run in
the open air. The illustration shows
a design for a coop with a covered
run attached which will prevent any
trouble with the chicks. This ruu may
be made so ns to attach it to the coop
when desired, and may be of any de
sired dimensions. It consists simply
of a light frame covered with muslin.
the frame being built on a slant in the
way shown iu the cut. By having
hooks at each corner nnd eyes screwed
into the corners of the coop, this frame
may be attached In a moment. If the
day looks stormy, simply attach this
covered run to the coop, and you -will
then be certain that no harm will come
to the chicks should a sudden and hard
shower come up.
Having raised chickens for ovar forty
years, I have learned something about
the business. I lost whole broods in
my earlier days by feeding soft food
and letting them run on damp or xvet
ground tvhde young. I seldom lor,e
any now. When about thirty-six hours
old tney negin to picic about lor some

cording to tuc number; hoil fifteen
or twenty minutes, so they are solid to
the core, take out of the shell, put in
a tea cup and cut tho egg line with a
sharp knife about the sir,? of wheat
grains; drop some on a clean board or
paper, and they will begin to eat; they
prefer that to anything. Feed the eggs
two or three days, alternating wi;h
dry bread crumbs, or mix the bread
and eggs. When a week old feed sma'l
wheat and cracked corn. Tha corn
should be ground about the size, cf shot
sifting the Hue out through an ordinary
meal sieve. It is handy to feed and

If it is possible to put. a suliieiont
supply of water on to a garden spor
it would be an experiment well
worthy any farmer's trial, even 1!" it
involves considerable labor and seme
expenditure in arranging to get the
water on the land. A rich garden
spot with ample water will produce
enormous yields. The production of
some of the Western farms, under
Irrigation, is simply fabulous. If it
is concluded to try the experiment of
watering a one-fourth or one-half acre
patch, a little different treatment may
bo accorded the soil than where the
natural rainfall is to be depended upon.
In the first place the ground should
be made as rich as possible, for If the
water supply Is good there will bo no
danger of burning tiie crops. In con
nection with the application of fertil
izers and manures, tiie ground should
be plowed to an extreme ibpth. It
would be a good idea to subsoil the
land: if a subsoil plow is not available,
follow nn eight or ten inch furrow
with a heavy bull tongue, loosening up
the ground to a depth oi! from twelve
to sixteen inches. It will take some
little experimentation and experience
to become a successful irrigator, oven
on the scale of one-half an aero, but the
yield which can be produced will more
than pay for all the work and trouble.
The only question should be, Is there
an available water supply? It can be
depended upon that an acre will re
quire eighteen inches and probably
two feet of water two acre feet that
is. the land will have to be covered
over two feet deep with Avater during
season. Tha Progressive

I do not think any farmer who owns

should be treated well nnd put up

dogs straying about. That Is when the
mi-:chief is done. A dog that would
hot touch a sheep when alone, -will
often help others. If the tax was en
