Great zeal was shown by the officers
and men and wonderful improvement
made in the short period of one week's

of tho United States Army, a most ac

he is now stationed in this State. Ho is

Benefits of Coarse MarurE.
?When coarse manure is spread
on the soil, the benefits are not re
ceived until the next season, as it
is necessary for the substances
composing: the manure to thor
oughly decompose before they can
become available; therefore the
manuro heap of this year is really
the preparing of the plant food for
next season. When fresh manure,
however, is .spread on the land, and
been worked into the soil with a
cultivator, it may be ready for use
before the crop matures, and thus
assist in filling out the grain, but
any coarse material in the manure
will remain in the ground until
next year. The soil absorbs and
holds ammonia, thus preventing
loss, and especially if the manure
is intimately incorporated with
the soil. The amount of rainfall
and warmth will also affect the de
composition of manure in the soil,
while lime also assists in hastening
its conversion into plant food. It
is necessary when using manure to
keep in view the fact that it must
be in proper condition to immedi
ately Hupply the plants with availa
ble material for growth. Fertiliz
ers can be used in connection with
good manure to good advantage.?

Yes, "Prophylactic" is a peculiar
word, and hard to remember, but it
is a Splendid Name for a Tooth
brush, because you use a tooth
brush to prevent your teeth from
decaying, and Prophylactic means
o "preventive of disease." With
every brush comes a neat little
hook secured to the brush, and
thoro is a hole in the end of the
handlo which enables you to hang
it up. The head will not touch the
wall. Ask your dentist about tho
"Prophylactic Tooth-brush," and
