' A Landlord's Letter.to His Tenants.
(From The Progressive Farmer.)
Mr. J .J. McSWal, of Greenville,
youth Carolina, sends us a copy of a
letter he is sending to his tenants. Of
Course he starts out by telling them
that he is sending them The Progres
sive Farmer and wants them to read it
--something every landowner ought to
do. There is no better Christmas pres
ent "than a year's subscription to The
Here are some other interesting
things in the letter Mr. McSwain is
sending to his tenants, in this case,
"Open up all the ditches and as soon
as , possible and certainty before
Christmas put pine brush into all
washes and gullies and also set out
some hopeysuekle vines in the wash
"In the next place, scrape up all
the rich earth and rotten chips around
the yard and In the fence corners and
all the piles of ashes and piles from
the out .places and haul it gut. on -the
fleids. I have often thought 'that the
.most fertile lands of our farms are
.allowed to go to waste at places in
and around the fence corners and
wood piles, producing nothing during
the year except weeds.
"Next place, go down to the creek
and pick out a patch of bottom land
that is now in briars and bushes and
clean it up and plant that in corn. You
can make more corn on one acre of
rich land in the bottoms than you can
make on two or three acres of upland.
"In the next place, as you have a
lot of range, you should have one or
two- sows for breeding purposes- only
and raise pigs not only, for your own
use but for sale. You should also have
two or three cows and hogs, they will
make manure for you. You will have
plenty of hay from the Bermuda bot
toms and from the peavine hay to win
ter several cows.
"Remember that the best time to
make a crop is when you prepare for
it the year before, and for that reason
we want you to take it In hand to
build it up constantly so that it will
make better crops for you. We don't
want any more land cleared up but we
~want the leaves and woods earth
and the mold to be hauled out on the
open land and some to be put in the
stables and lot and later hauled out on
the land; this will build the land up.
"You each have a splendid oppor
tunity now to live well and to have
some money each year so that you
may eventually be able to buy and pay
for a little piece of land. I think it
the duty of every man who is the head
of a family to try to own a piece of
land. It makes better citizens, both
white and colored, and there will be
certain sections of the country that
will be offered for sale to colored peo
ple, as it is better for them to live in
separate comnmunitles, and they doubt
less prefer this."
"Yours very truly,
"J. J1. .\lesfwain."

FAT AND PIEMP'
Thin Meni andt lWomen Do You Want
to get Fat tand lie Stronug I
The trouble with~ most thin folks
who wish to gain w~eight is that they
insist on dIrugging theti' stomach or
stuffing it with greasy foodls, rubbing
on useless "flesh creams," 0or follow
ing some foolish physical culture stunt,
wvhile the real cause of thinness goes
untouched. You cannot get fat until
your digestive tract ppperly assimi
lates the food you eat Drink a glass
of cold water four o01 five times a day
and take the folio ing preparation
known to reliable di ggists almost ev
erywhere, which s/ emingly embodieg
the missing elemerit needed by the f
gestive organs to hellp them e vert
food into rich, f t-laden blo . This
prelparation is c lied to .ne, and
much remarkabi testin y is given
as to its success ul us n flesh build
tng. Tonoline I comes in the
for'm of a small non-injurious tablet,
taken at meals andl mixedl with the di
gesting food, tends to pre pare fat, flesh
and muscle building elements so that
the blood can reoadily accept and carry
them to the starved portion of the
body. You can readily picture the
transformation that additional and
previously lacking flesh making ma
terial should bring to your cheeks, fill
ing out hollows about your neck,
shoulder's and bust disappearing, and
your taking on from 15 to 30O pounds of
solid healthy flesh. Tonoline is harm
less, inexpensive, effieient. Peoplem
Drug,8tore have it and are authorized
to refund your money if weight in
crease is not obtained as per the guiar
antee found in each packnae.
Caution--Tonoline is reconlmendedl
only as a flesh builder and while excel
lent r'esults in cases of nervous indi
ges'ion, etc., have been reportedl, care
should be tak~en about tusing it unless
a gain of weight is desired.

You Drink Lots of Water.
When your kidneys hurt and your
back feels sore, don't get scared and
proceed to load your stomach with 'a
lot of drugs that excite the kidneys
and irritate the entire urinary tract.
Keep your kidneys clean like you keep
your bowels clean, by flushing them
with cold water and kidneco which re
moves the body's urinous waste and
stimulates them to their normal ac
tivity. The function of the kidneys is
to filter the blood. 24 hours they
strain from it 500 g ns of acid and
waste, so we can r a ily understand
the vital importan of keeping the

ending bladder weakness.
Kidneco is inexpensive, cannot in

neco which everyone should take now
and then to keep their kidneys clean
and active. Try this, also keep up the
water drinking and no doubt you will
wonder what became of your kidney
trouble and backache.
