* Saved G
"I want to tell you what
e eivedl from the use of Thedford's Black-Draught," writes
Mrs. Sylvania WVoods, of Cliftoni Mills, Ky.S
* "It certainly has 1no equal for la grippe, bad colds,
liver and stomiach troubles. I firmly believe Black-Draught *
saved my little girl 's life. \Vheni she had the measles,
they went inl on her, lbut one good dlose of Thedlford's1
* Black--Drau~ght muade them break out, and she has had no
more trouble. 1 shall never be without*
i~n my home." FIor constipation, indigestion, headache, dlizzi
* ness, malaria, chills and fever, biliousness, and all similarS
* ailments, Thedford's Black-Draught has p~roved itself a safe,*
* reliable, gentle and valuable remedy.5
* If you suffer from any of these complaints, try Black
* Draught. It Is a medicine of known merit. Seventy-fiveS
yestrs of spendidsuaccess proves its value. Good for *
* young and old. For sale everywhere. Price 25 cents.

Ask the Boy Who Won
how he raised the Blue Ribbon ear.
In Boys' Clubs all over the country the prizes are going to the
boy who uses the right fertilizer. That means enough
to make a solid, well filled, and perfectly shaped ear.
Use 200 to 500 poutids Kainit per acre to balance either
green or stable inanue antle sure that the fertilizer you
use contains 3 to io per ceut Potash.
Ask your dealer to carry goods of that grade. If lie
doesi't we will sell you any anount of Potash, from one
200 lb. bag up, and you can add it yourself.
Don't forget this, for Potash Pays
