Stopped Most Terrible Suf
fering by Getting Her Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegeta
Denison, Texas. "Aft er my little
fcirl was bom two years ago I began suf
fering with female
trouble and could
hardly do my work.
I was very nervous
but just kept drag
ging on until last
summer when I got
where I could not do
my work. I would
have a chill every
day and hot flashes
and dizzy spells and
my head would al
most burst. I got where 1 was almost
a walking skeleton and life was a burden
to me until one day my husband's step
sister told my husband if he did not do
aomething for me I would not last long
and told him to get your medicine. So he
got Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound for me, and after taking the first
three doses I began to improve. I con
tinued its use, and I have never had any
female trouble since. I feel that I owe
my life to you and your remedies. They
did for me what doctors could not do
and I will always praise it wherever I
go."Mrs. G. O. LOWERY, 419 W.Mon

female ills, get a bottle of Lydia E.

accurately, Romanized. It is they

HARM BY SQUASH BUGS
Insect Attacks Many Plants in
No Poison Can Be Applied That Is Ef.
fectiveAnything With Strong
Odor Will Act as Repellant
Keep Close Watch.
The squash bug attacks squashes,
pumpkins, cucumbers and such plants,
often ruining the crop in a day, if
nothing is done to overcome them. No
poison can be applied that is effective,
as the insects' work is done on tha
under side of the leaves where the poi
son will not reach. They also do their
work in the early morning while the
dew is still on the foliage. Anything
with a strong odor will act as a re
plian t, also material like air-slaked
lime or finely-ground land plaster will
have a marked effect In keeping them
Careful watch should be kept for the
first appearance of the bugs. At the
first sign of them, sprinkle the hills
with the dry material, on which jus*
enough crude carbolic acid has been
sprayed to give the material a strong
odor. Quick action must be the watch
word. One day of delay means the loss
of the crops. Cantaloupe vines seem
particularly susceptible to the attacks
and they seem to succumb to the rav
ages of the insects more quickly than
squashes and cucumbers.
There is another remedy frequently
used, where it is obtainable, and it
gives excellent result. It is fish scrap,

finely ground. This may be strewn
with a lavish hand as it is cheap and
besides repelling the bugs, serves an
excellent purpose as a fertilizer. Two
the powder, if no heavy
rains occur, will usually do the work.
One application of the fish scrap is
usually sufficient, if there are no rains
to wash it away. What damage the
bug does is done quickly, in fact the
ravages do not usually last more than
SILO IS NECESSARY TO DAiRY
Grazing Land Then Can Give Way te
Exercise LotRoughage Is Con
served for Feed.
The intelligent farmer of today has
a silo to take the place of his grazing
or pasture land, and finds it real econ
omy, says De Laval Monthly. In fact,
there are some dairy farmers in the
dairy sections of our country who have
only an exercise lot in place of pas
ture land, and nearly all their farm
roughage is conserved for feed during
the summer and winter. They have
their summer and winter silos. These
farmers rapidly learn the advantages
of winter dairying, which are: A
greater milk and butter production,
better prices for milk and butterfat,
better quality of calves, hence better
dairy cattle, and better prices for their
crops, by feeding them to their own
live stock at that season of the year.
Winter dairying also enables the
farmer to employ the best Kind of
labor because it is possible to give
steady employment the year round.
GIVE SHEEP CHANCE ON FARM
Animals Are Close-Grazing and Thrive
on Short Grass and Rough Land
Need Little Care.
Sheep would be a source of profit
on many farms where they have not
been given attention. They are close
grazing animals and as such will thrive
on short grass and rough land where
other animals would find it diffcult to
live. Why not get a few sheep and
give them a chance on your farm?
CHICKENS HELP IN ORCHARD
Fowls Assist Cultivation Where Seed
Is Scattered Underneath Branches
of the Trees.
Many a fruit grower fails to prop
erly cultivate his orchard for fear he
will peel the trunks of his trees and
damage the root.ets by doing this
work. Just cut the soil under the
trees and scatter fine seed and the
Towls will do the work just right, also
enriching the soil at the same time.
PRACTICE OF SELLING CREAM
Successful Dairymen Leave Sufficient

CHICKS RELISH GREEN F00E
Ma ^els, Bts, Potatoes, Sprouted
Oats, Lettuce and Lawn Clip
pings Are Good.
Green food is necessary for little
chicks, according to the Connecticul
Agricultural college. Among the most
suitable and convenient crops for this
are mangels, table beets, potatoes,
sprouted oats, lettuce and lawn clip
pings. The season and availability will
usually decide what to use. The prin
cipal thing is to use something of
this nature. The feeding may begin
on the second or third day. The littk
chicks must be taught to eat this oi
they may not develop an appetite foi
it. If they are fed sparingly of grain
for a few days they will soon get tc
like the green feed. The mangels may
be cut in large pieces and placed on
nails for the chicks to peck at. Ap
ples, etc., may be fed the same way.
Later in the season clover makes
an ideal feed. With a double yarding
system rye or oats may be used. On
of the easiest ways to get green feec
Is to sprout grain. A layer of sand
about two inches deep kept warm and
moist will soon produce a lot of oat*
or barley sprouts.
WATERCRESS EASY TO GROW
Barrel Sawed in Half and Filled With
Loam, Leaves and Rotted Manure
Watercress is easily grown in a tuft
ror the table use in any kitchen gar
den. Sow the seed in shallow boxes
just sift it on the top soil. Then
place a wet cloth over the soil to moist
en the earth. This method prevent!
the seeds being washed to one corner,
which usually occurs when watered
with a sprinkler.
When four leaves appear on thf
plantlets they are ready for their per
manent position. For that purpost
use a barrel sawed in half. Fill in
with garden loam, leaves and well-rot
tod manure. Work the dirt fine and
bring the earth up to within ten inchei
of the top of the barrel.
Set the plants si inches apart eacn
way. Water them frequently. The
soil must be kept moist. Once a week
overflow the barrel with water to
mrry off any sour deposits. Place a
little small charcoal on the soil to keep
It sweet and fresh. The cress is cut
with a knife. The barrel must be
placed in a partly shady place.

ORCHARD SITE IS IMP0RTAN1
Wherever Possibls Trees Should Be
Planted on Well-Drained Soil,
With Southern Slope.
A good site is important when start
ing an orchard and if possible the treeg
should be planted on a well-drained
southern slope. In some sections whera
early frosts cause serious losses a
northern slope is the best, as the buda
will not come out as early in the spring,
This reduces the danger of losing tha
crop, but in general fruit growers seem
to profit most on the well-drained
southern slope. Hardy varieties that
are cared for properly will usually
thrive in any well-drained soil of fair
FEW HINTS ON SETTING TREE
One Must Be Careful That Roots Are
Kept Moist at All Times
Sunshine Is Fatal.
There are a few general hints ID

and they cannot live if their roots are
exposed for any length of time to the
air or sunshine. So let us be very
careful that we keep the roots moist
at all ttmes.

CLOCK HOLDS SHIP'S SAFETY
Chronometer Is the Most Wonderful
and Accurate Timekeeper
A ship's chronometer is the most
wonderful and accurate timekeeper
made, for upon its accuracy depend
the lives of all on board. So accurate,
indeed, is a ship's chronometer that it
does not vary a second a day.
An error of- only a few seconds may
put a captain of a vessel miles out of
his reckoning at sea, and run the ship
into great danger. For that reason
every ship's timepiece goes through

Most large vessels have three chro
nometers on board in case of accidents,
and whenever a vessel goes into port
they are sent on shore and tested to
see if they are still accurate. On board
ship the chronometer is kept amidships
because there is the least motion and
the smallest variation of temperature.
