From the outlook Corn and Hay, and all food stuff
will be high next year, corn will probably be over one
dollar a bushel cash. So let's forget 14 cents cotton long
enough to sow plenty of patches of Rye, Clover, Barley,
Yitch and plenty of Fall Oats for early feed next Spring.
The outlook for the South is bright, and there was never
a better time to buy farm lands and town property than
now. I am already getting inquiries for 6inall farms and
town property. Don't be afraid to buy real estate, for it
will show you fine profits. See me while in the city.

No End of Good Reasons
NLESS you buy carelessly, these
are a few of the features that will
lead you to the I II C line when you
buy a hay press. I H C presses are
provided with self-feeders, elimi
nating dangerous foot-feeding and increasing
capacity by even operation; the bale chamber
is of just the right height to permit convenient
tying of the bales; the bale tension and roller
tucker make for uniform, compact and attrac
tive bales; the toggle joint plunger is the most
powerful and simple compressing device ever
used on a hay press ? though producing great
est pressure, it requires least power to operate.
I H C Hay Presses
cannot be surpassed in convenience, durability,
simplicity, and economy of operation. They
will put your loose hay into neat, compact
bundles, occupying but one-fifth the former
space, increasing your available barn room,
and making it possible to sell your hay in dis
tant localities at the highest market prices.
You will find three sizes, i4 x 18, 16 x 18,
and 17 x 22-inch bale chamber, in the I II C
hay press line, baling, at a most conservative
estimate, from six to sixteen tons per day. If
your choice is a horse power press, you will be
interested by its special features, the pull
f)Ower principle, compound leverage, and the
ow step-over. If you desire a motor press,
study the durable power jack. Remember,
too, that this is an all year round machine, for
the engine may be detached and used as a
regular portable power plant to run saw, pump,
cream separator, churn, feed grinder, electric
light plant, repair shop, etc.

It Always Helps
says Mrs. Sylvania Woods, of Clifton Mills, Ky., in
writing of her experience with Cardui, the woman's
tonic. She says further: "Before I began to use
Cardui, my back and head would hurt so bad, I
thought the pain would' kill nie. I was hardly able
to do any of my housework. After taking three bottles
of Cardui, I began to feel like a new woman. 1 soon
gained 35 pounds, and now, 1 do all my housework,
as well as run a big water mill.
1 wish every suffering woman would give
The V^man's Tonic
a trial. I still use Cardui when 1 feel a little bad,
and it always does me good."
Headache, backache, side ache, nervousness,
tired, worn-out feelings, etc., are sure signs of woman
ly trouble. Signs that you need Cardin, the woman's
tonic. You cannot make a mistake in trying Cardui
for your trouble. It has been helping weak, ailing
women for more than fifty years.
