"I used to be troubled with a weakness peculiar to
women," writes Mrs. Anna Jones, of Kenny, 111. "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 1 was so
thin, my weight was 115. Now, i weigh 163, and I am
never sick. I ride horseback as good as ever. 1 am In
fine health at 52 years."

An otllcial bulletin was Issued by
the government at Constantinople to
night admitting defeat at tho hands of
the Bulgarians In the great battle on
the Thracean plains, application was
made to the embassies in Constanti
nople tonight for mediation by the
powers to end the hostilities and ar
range a peace agreement.
The ambassadors, prior to this, had
asked the porte to grant permission
to each of the great powers to Bend
i one warship through the Dardanelles
and this request has been complied
with. Tho only guarantee of safety
for the native Christians and per
haps foreigners In Constantinople is
to be found In the presence of the
warships of the great powers In tho
harbor of the Turkish capital.
It Is the general belief that Bul
garia, chief of the Balkan States, will
refuse to listen to anything In the way
of Intervention until the Bulgarian
army is at the gates of Constantinople
and will insist that Turkey make an
appeal direct to the allies without In
terference from the powers.
The powers have not been able to
agree upon -the French premier's for

which Is not acceptable to either Aus
tria or Germany. They are taking
steps, however, for the protection of
Christians and their own political In

Daranelles by each of the powers.
Beyond the statement that the
Turkish army is Retreating to the last
line of fortification outside Constan

from the seat of war tonight. Fighting
was reported along the line from
Tchorlu to Zeral. which was the out

are doing their utmost to prevent.

October ths Beat Month for Planting
Oats In the South?Compares Wall
In Profit with Corn
[By Q. H. Alford. of I II C 8ervlco
From October 1 to November 15,
according to latitude, la tbp beat time
to sow oata In the cotton bolt. The
area in oata should be fully as largo na
that in corn. Groat enthusiasm now
jrevails In regard to corn, but let us
not forget that aa a feed for stock
and cash crop, oats Is one of the
best crops that can be grown in tho
The chief crops grown all through
the cotton belt are cotton and Obrn.
As an average, for the period from
IHOO to 1909, there was planted from
ten to fifteen acres of corn for each
acre of oats in the various cotton belt
states. During the same time, tho
average value of the oat crop per
acre was $10.09, while the average
value per acre of corn was SI 1.02.
Figuring the cost of growing an oat
crop and a corn erop we llnd that tho
oat crop was the more profitable.
There are several important reasons
why wo should sow miillona of acres
of oats In the cotton belt. It would
reduce washing and leaching to the
minimum, furnish grazing, add to the
deplorably deficient aupply of humus,
and add to the always short aupply of
Of course, there nro better winter
cover crops than oat8. Burr clover
and crimson clover and the vetches,
and In some cases some of tho other
winter cereals are better. We do not
claim that oats alone, or that oats and
hairy vetch combined should be grow?<
for the sole purpose of supplying a
cover crop. However. In view of the
fact that oats will grow on poor land,
poorly prepared, and that It costs lit
tle to Boed an acre, it Is a good win
ter cover crop.
Two and one-half acres were planted
In oats at the experiment station at
Baton Rouge, Da., for grazing experi
ment on September 28. On October
29, seven poland china pigs, weighing
In total 27fi pounds, were put on this
plat and were given no feed but the
green oats during the winter. By
February 17 the pigs weighed a total
of 568 pounds. There was an average
gain of .37 pounds per pig per day for
110 days. From October 29 to January
1, forty-five head of sheep were pas
tured on this same field. Of this
number eight ewes and nine lambs
were pastured continuously thereafter
until February 17, at which date the
lambs averaged sixty-eight days old
and weighed 35.5 pounds each. Al
lowing six cents per pound gained by
the lambs, we have a return of $13.40
per acre, plus the pasturage of sheep
not considered In the estimate.
The loss of humus from the soil
results in decreasing Its power to
store up and properly supply crops
with water. Soils with a liberal
amount of humus are capable of morn
effectually withstanding drought than
similar soils with less humus, The
oat crop fills the soil full of roots, and
the stubble also adds much humus to
The oaf grain Is a very valuable
feed, especially for young animals,
because of the moderately high con
tent of protein and the largo amount
of ash or mineral matter. Pound for
pound, oats are not as valuable for
feeding mature animals an corn, four
pounds of corn being equal to about
five pounds of oats.
In attempting to build up worn out
cotton lands we must depend very
largely upon the leguminous crops.
Now the ont crop In harvested enrly
enough to p? rmlt tho growing of a
leguminous crop. The leguminous
crop may be plowed under or It may
bo used as feed, and the manure re
turned to the land. If we are going
to build up our soils and raise good
stock we must grow oat crops and fol
low with legume crops.
Oats will prove about ih" best paying
small grain crop thai can be grown
over practically the entire cotton belt.
The same soil that will produce one
bale of cotton or forty bushels of corn
per acre will produce sixty bushels of
oats per acre. At an average price
that has pre\ailed for oats during 11.?
past five years, the sixty bushels will
sell for from $36 to $40 and the straw
when baled will often pay for growing
After using the disk harrow to cut
tho corn stalks or cotton stalks, plow
i tho land deep, then disk and double
disk and harrow and cross harrow
until every inch of the soil has been
stirred and broken as fine as possible.
A mixture of 300 pounds of sixteen
psr cent acid phosphate. 100 pounds
of cotton seed meal, and 200 pounds
of potash, followed In March with a
top dressing of fifty to seventy-five
pounds of nitrate of noda per acre, Is
good fertilizer for oats on average soil.
Tho best varieties for fall sowing in
tho south are of the red rustproof
type. The original rod rustproof,
, the Appier and the Bancroft, are so
nearly alike that no one can tell them
apart if sown side by aide. Tbe Burt
oat is for spring sowing.
There are three methods commonly
practiced in planting oata-sowing
broadcast, open furrow, and drilling.
Drilling of the seed Is to be preferred,
since considerably less seed may be
used If drilled by machine; the seeds
are covered at a uniform depth, corns
up, grow, and ripen uniformly, tho
small ridges made by the drill afford
a slight degree of protection from
cold; and the yield from drilled oats
is usually greater than from broad
cast oats. The seed saved, and the
larger crops that usually result from
drilled oats will soon pay tor a good
drill on tho farm.
