* Get Hid of the Stumps.
This is particularly the season to
get out the stumps. There are a whole
lot of ways of doing this very impor
tant job. The usefulness of dyna
mite and of the stump puller has been]
many times demonstrated; burning
seems to give good results in some j
cases. In short, if a man Is really in
earnest about gottlng rid of hlB!
stumps, he can find a way to do it. It
will cost him something, to be sure,
any way he goes at it; but It will bo
decidedly profitable work for all that.
Does any man suppose that It doesn't
cost him anything to dodge about
stumps as he breaks and cultivates bis
land, to be compelled to use crude
implements instead of improved ones,
to repair the breakage and make up
the loss of wear and tear caused by
the stumps, to get rid of the weeds
which grow about them to seed the
rest of the field, to lose the use of the
land they occupy7 Clearing out the
stumps may not add to the actual fer
tility of the laid, hut it will Increase
its cultivable arear, and enable it to

Liniment will not (Hire, affords only
temporary relief at best, causes you to
delay the proper treatment, allows the
malady to get a firmer hold on you.
Liniments may case the pain, but they
will no more cure Rheumatism that
