FROST OF LAST WEEK HELD"
10 BE BENEFICIAL TO COBK
The general summary of crop con
ditions for Illinois issued by the.de
partment of agriculture for the week
ending Sept. 21, is as follows:
lhe week opened warm with the
temperature considerably above the
I seasonable average; there was a de-
cided fall the middle part, culminat
ln ,n J'S" heavy frosts on the
I '""nimg.s ui me nui ami isui, in the
central and northern districts; the
temperature rose rapidly the latter
part of the week. Except in portions
in the southern district, where rain is
still needed, the distribution of rain
fall vas quite general throughout the
state. In portions of the northern dis-
trict the fall was heavy, ami conskler-
able damage to grain in shocks and
stacks' has ensued.
Corn passed through the cold- spell
practically unscathed. While some
fields in lowlands were touched by
frost, the damage was slight. Many
correspondents state that the effect
of the frost will be beneficial, tending
to hastening .the ripening of the crop.
Peports indicate that the bulk of the
crop will be entirely safe in two
weeks. Some cutting has been done,
and the work will be in active opera
tion, over a large area, during the en
Plowing has progressed, and consid
erable wheat and rye have been seed
ed, but the work was retarded on ac
count of wet condition of the soil. .
'The excellent state of pastures is
generally marked; in the southern dis-?
trict where grass has deteriorated
improvement is noted. The wet weath
f" has delayed clover hulling. Proom
corn ami cowpeas are being harvested
but no expression with regard t
j leni nas ueen rcceiveu. Mock is in
in some localities gardens were nip
ped by frost. Potatoes will probably
yield a light crop; considerable com
plaint of rotting is made. Meagre rv
ports indicate a tine sweet potato out
Apples continue to drop, and the
outlook is for a very liirht crop of in
ferior quality. There is a good slip-
ply of grapes

scrawniness are signs that the food
is not properly assimilated and that
you do not get the nourishment from
it that von should.
.Mi-o-na mingles with the food you
eat, aids in assimilation, tones up and

the desired effect, the cost is trifling.

age of children born into this world are
so unfortunate as to come of parents
whose physical condition is such that
the child gets tmt a poor start in lite,

the greater part of the time, thereby
giving misery and anxiety to its parents
and comfort to no one.
Struggle as they may the parents find
themselves unable to do more than keep
life in the child, and in their despera
tion they are willing to try any remedy
or food -which may be suggested to them
by their neighbors or friends.
There is now being introduced to
these parents a new preparation which
Qas not asyet failed to accomplish won
derful results in establishing souna
physical conditions in sickly children
and one that is absolutely guaranteed to
give relief and make a permanent cure.
Many people have been benenttea Dy
this remedy since it was first put upon
the market in January, 1903, and hun
dreds of testimonials are in possession
of The Milks' Emulsion Company of
Terre Haute, Ind., which you can se
cure by simply writing for them.
If you will buy a bottle ot tnis Milks'
Emulsion at your druggist's at a cost of
50 cents and it does not accomplish the
results claimed for it the druggist is
authorized to return the money to you.
