"I used to be troubled with a weakness peculiar to
women," writes Mrs. Anna Jones, of Kenny, I1L "For
nearly a year, I could not walk, without holding my sides.
I tried several different doctors, but I grew worse. Finally,
our druggist advised Cardui for my complaint I was so
thin, my weight was 115. Now, I weigh 163, and I am
never sick. I ride horseback as good as ever. I am in
fine health at 52 years."
We have thousands of such letters, and more are
arriving daily. Such earnest testimony from those who
have tried it, surely proves the great value of this vegeta
ble, tonic medicine, for women.
Cardui relieves women's sufferings, and builds weak
women up to health and strength. If you are a woman,
give it a trial. It should help you, for it has helped a mil
lion others. It is made from pure, harmless, herb ingredi
ents, which act promptly and surely on the womanly organs.
It is a good tonic Try itl Your druggist sells it.

A FINE CHANCE
FOR YOUNG FARMERS
Strkilj Agricultural Course to be Of
fered at Clentgon College for the
Beginning next session, Clemson
Collego will give an intensive one
yeur Agricultural Course to young
farmers who desire to learn the Im
portant yet simple fundamental prin
ciples which underlie succosBful ag
This course will begin October 1st
and close June 1st, and will be open
to young men eighteen years old and
over. The course Includes none of
the usual acadomtc branches such as
Mathematics, English, History, etc.,
but Is confined to a study of the prin
ciples of crop production, horticulture,
animal husbandry, dairying, etc. Ag
ricultural Arithmetic and simple farm
bookeeplng will be taught, and Instead
of the usual English branches, a sim
ple course In parliamentary practice
and public speaking will be given, suf
| flclent to enable the student when he
r?eturns to his community to preside
at a public meeting or to hold a farm
The purpose of the course is to take
young men 18 years old or older, who]
know the practical side of fnrming |
and make of them better and more
scientific farmers, and community
leaders and builders as well.
An elementary rural school educa
tion will be required of those who ap
ply for the course. Ability to read and
write intelligently, and a fair knowl
edge of Arithmetic constitute the re
quirements. The cost of the course,
including fees, uniforms, board, lodg
ing, heat, light and laundry, will be
$117.55. Those who are able, will pay
$40.00 additional for tuition.
The Minis scholarship bill pased at
the 1912 session of the General As
sembly provides for scholarships In
the one year course as follows,?one
from each county and seven from
the State at large. Each scholarship
is worth 100 and free tuition. The
trustees designate In each county the
most representative organization of
farmers. The Executive Committee of
this organization, on or before July
1st. recommends to the President of
the College three or more young men
over eighteen years old, who have done
worthy agricultural work during the
preceding year or In any previous
year. These young men are notified
of the recommendation and go up for
competitive examination on July 12
at the county court house. They stand
their examinations along with regular
four year scholarship applicants, but
the examination is different and cov
ers only the elementary common school
branches. In any county where there
is no organization of farmers, the Di
rectors of the Agricultural Depart
ment of Clemson College solicits opin
ions from representative farmers of
the county, and their recommendations
are used as would be the recommen
dation of an Executive Committee.
The seven state-at-large scholarships
are recommended In the same way,
except by the Exec tu I ve Committee of
the most representative state organiza
tion of farmers. The young men rec

As the time is snort in which to
make recommendations, it is earnest
ly requested that In counties having
an organization, that Interested par
ties give to the members of the Exec
utive Committee of the organization
names of desirable applicants. In
those counties having no organization,
farmers are requested to write to Prof.
Harper, giving names of worthy young
men who would like to compete for
the scholarships. Recommendations
for the seven scholarships from the
State-at-large should be sent to Mr.
E. W. Dabbs, President of the Farm

Good Stationery Pays the Farmer *
The- following experience of our Mr.
. A. Martin should carry Its own les
son with It, and It is a lesson many
farmers need to learu:
"The other day I was coming out
or the postofilce with a hlg bundle of
mall In my hand. A friend stopped me
for a chat and during the conversa
tion I saw his eyes riveted upon the
top envelope of the mall l was holding.
I looked, too, and some breeder of
Du roc-Jersey hogs had written us a
letter. There, upon the envelope, I
saw in red Ink, printed upon neat but
Inexpensive paper, the picture of a
beautiful Duroc-Jersey boar. Over the
cut were the words, 'Return In five
days to,' and under the cut was the
name and address of the writer say
ing that he was a breeder of Duroc
Jersey swine, Sh'-opshire sheep and
Rhode island chickens.
"The man to whom I was talking
said: "By Jlmminy, I've been looking
for a Duroc-Jersey man; and he took
the name and address. When I open
ed the mall, I found two other adver
tisements of the very same broed of
hogs?only the letters were written on
plain stationery?and one of them
with a hard lead pencil. Thus, one
man probably made a sale that would
pay for his entire stationery?and the
other fellows missed a chance be
cause they had 'economized' by using,
cheap, nameless paper and envelope."
Even If Mr. Martin's friend had
known that the other breeders had
Durocs for sale, the probability is that
he would have written first to the man
who used good stationery, Just as
anyone else would. That a breeder
does not have business stationery in
dicates first of all to the man who
gets a letter from him that he is not
much of a breeder anyway. Then he
has to waste energy to prove this im
Hy all means, if you are a business
farmer?as, of course, you are?have
some stationery printed telling just
what your line of farming is. You
do not need anything fancy?certain
ly no "frills," nor do you need ex
pensive stationery; but good neat pa
per you must have, and good neat
printing you should insist upon.
Nor should the farmer limit his
printing to his letter-heads and en
velopes. He should label what he sells
If It is of good quality, so that the
buyer may know where to get more
Here Is another story told by Mr.
"Recently I was waiting for a train
at Hupelo, IMss. Standing on a truck
in front of the express office I saw
in a crate a beautiful Collie puppy and
a Berkshire pig?one in each end of
the crate. Tacked upon the crate was
an attractive shipping tag, giving the
name of the shipper, stating that he
was a breeder of Berkshire swine.
Homer Pigeons, Collie dogs, and In
dian Runner ducks. I saw no less than
a dozen people walk up, look at the
puppy and pig and then take out a
pencil and paper and write down the
address given on the tng."
Did that man's little bill for print
ing prove a profitable investment?
Give the farm a name, put the name
j on your letter-heads and envelopes,
i and as a label on the things you sell,
j and see if it does not make you feel
a littie bit prouder of youi business
I and keep you eager to make the farm
and what it yields good enough to
justify the name.
The printing will not cost much. The
publisher of your local paper can do
It for you and will be glad to help
