LIFE NOT WORTH LIVING
Is tho way Miss Alta Abel of West
Baden, Ind., summed up her existence
after having sought in vain for health.
She writes: "I was a complete wreck
k ?always tired, worn out and. nervous.
$ I bad to spend about one-third of my
time in bed.
"Vinol, your delicious cod liver and
Iron tonic, was recommended, and I
can truly say It has done mo more
jrood than all the medtclm I overtook
in my life. That nervous and tired
t feeling Is all gone. I have gained in
\\ health, flesh and strength, until I feel
like another person." (We guarantee
this testimonial to be genuine.")
What Vlnol did for Miss Abel, we
know It will do for every nervous,
run-down, overworked, tired, thin and
"discouraged woman in this vicinity.
?fe Try a bottle of Vinol with the un>
^Jm'ts(andlng that your money will bo
returned if it does not help you.

?heul Selection for Improving
Both Yield mid Quality.
Let any farmer walk througl Is
field of wheat, and be will Und ..at
all the heads are not alike, even if
sown from the best standard varieties
of seed wheat. He will find that some
heads are longer than others, some
broader, some with more grains to
the head, and some tighter in the
chaff, and so on. It has recently be
come fully known that most of these
variations, unless they are directly
induced by a patch of richer soil, are
Strictly and fully inheritable, and are
, transmitted to their progeny in full
vigor and perfection. If fanners who
are specially interested in improving
the yields and quality of their wheats
will go through their lielils al harvest
time, and pick out the best heads from
their Heids, anil thresh and save
them for stock seed, they will lind
that it will result in a considerable
1 improvement in the yield quality and
uniformity of the crop produced an
other season. Kven if the fanner on
ly picks out enough heads to make a
bushel to a bushel and a half of se
lect seed, this will give him enough
lo sow an acre of wheat for the next
season, and that will produce a su
perior grade of seed. The product of
this should give him sufficient seed
to give him a good start towards his
full seeding for the following year.
We are following out this method of
selection on our own farms, and we
hope by this means to eventually in
crease the yield of different varieties
of wheat which we offer, materially;
but farmers can accomplish very gen
erally the same results for themselves,
if they will follow out the practice
as above indicated. and increased
yields pt : acre of all wheats sown
can very soon come to be realized,
provided this n uthod is generally
practiced in Hie saving and selection
of seed wheat. Wood's Crop Special
