GLAD TO TESTIFY
Thought Trouble Would Keep

"Yes Blr, I am glad to toll anybody
about a thing that did as much for me
os Tanlac has," said Elmer Doonan,
who Is employed by the Hudson Motor
Co., Detroit, Mich., as assembler and
has many friends among the automo
bile workers. "I think It's only right'
he continued, to pass the good word
along, for It was what I read In the
papers about Tanlac that caused me to
take It and get rid of this trouble that
looked like It was going to keep me
from working any more.
"For a long time I have had rheu
matism In my limbs. The trouble was
principally In my hands and wrist; In
fact, the pains extended all the way
down to my finger tips and my wrist
would swell up and caused me to suf
fer something terrible. I just can't tell
you how much I did suffer. I couldn't
get any rest at nights on account of
the pain and would get out of bed In
the mornings so tired and worn-out It
was all I could do to drag myself back
to work. I finally got so bad I was
losing a great deal of time for xny work
requires the use of nimble fingers and
I simply couldn't keep up In my condi
tion. "After trying nearly everything and
getting no belter I was just about
ready to give up trying any more. That
Is just the shape I had gotten Into
when I read about this Tanlac. I have
now used three bottles and I sleep fine
at nights, have a splendid appetite and
am relieved of the troubles from which
I suffered so long after other medicines
failed to do me any good and If my
statement will help anybody else to get
relief from troubles like I had I'm glad
to give it." ,

or In the sector of Arras, says a
thoughtful writer in a New York jour

for someone to decide whether that
Iron Is to be shell, or barbed wire, or

the question at the beginning of this
The marines call a sewing kit a
"husslff," which is the marines' way of
saying "housewife." And before we
get through making sewing kits we
nre likely to find "husslff" has been

permitted to Interfere with the lines
of the shapes in any way. Fancy fea

DEMAND FOR DOMESTICATED BLACKBERRY
The wild, or native blackberry vine, '
Is not so" plentiful as It once was. There
are fewer old fields, fewer brown-up
fence rows, fewer picturesque rail
fences with corners to shelter them
from the plow. With the passing of
the wild blackberry vino a market for
the product of the bigger, sweeter and
altogether better, domesticated black
berry Is opening.
Not many, even among the small
fruit growers, have paid a great deal
of Attention to the growing and mar
keting of the blackberry, writes W. O.
lilosser of Indiana In Farm and Prog
ress. They are fairly hardy and bear
most seasons, but, like their wild cous
ins, they are badly Injured by late
frosts. It Is estimated that an acre
of blackberries will produce something
like $200 worth of fruit In a year,,
and there is always a real sale for
. Good Market for Berries.
It Is likely that there will be a good
market for them for a long while In
the future. They ripen at a time In
the summer when fruit Is comparative
ly scarce and therefore desirable.
There can be no question about their
Iopularity. Cafes, hotel dining rooms
and first-class restaurants everywhere
are glad to get blackberries of good
quality. They are-the raw materials
for just the sort of pies liked by city
man and farmer alike. As to their
preserving, canning and cordial mak
ing qualities, those are too well known
to need comment.
In the last few years n large num
ber of good varieties have been de
veloped. One of the few diseases that
cause any trouble In a Jdackberry
planting Is enne rust. This Is hard to
overcome, but can be got rid of by
cutting out all' the diseased canes as
soon as the rust spots are seen.

HEAVY TOLL TAKEN
BY USELESS WEEDS
Of Great Importance to Corn
Crop to Kill Noxious Plants
and Conserve Moisture.
Why do you cultivate corn? There
are a number of reasons but, perhaps
paramount among all of them, is this
one to kill weeds. And why kill
weeds? To conserve the moisture in
the soli which a heavy crop of weeds
would normally remove and thus in
crease the corn yield. While it is of
recognize! importance to save mois
ture by forming a dust mulch when
cultivating, it is equally as important
to kill the weeds, to hold the mois
ture In the soil.
The heavy toll which weeds take
from the yield of the corn crop has
been shown In experiments at the Uni
versity, of Illinois. '
Plots at the university, that were
well prepared for corn, but in which
the weeds wtre allowed to grow, pro
duced only 7.3 bushels per acre as an
eight-year average, while plots just by
the side with the ground prepared and
the corn planted in the same way, but
the weeds kept down by scraping with
a hoe, produced 43.9 bushels, or an
Increase of 8.0 bushels of corn per
Experiments further fchow that for
the dry seasons 1011, 1913 and 1914
the uncultivated plots (weeds kept
down by scraping with hoe) produced
an average of 41.3 bushels, while the
cultivated ones produced 32.3 bushels,
or a difference of nine bushels In
favor of no cultivation. This culti
vation was done with a three-shovel
cultivator to a depth of about three
Inches, or the usual depth with a cul
tivator of this kind.
FOR LEGUME CROPS
(f Nodules Arc Found on Roots of
Nearly Every Plant Opera
tion Is Unnecessary.
False Impressions have led many
people to believe that legumes must
be inoculated every time the crop is
Keeded. Fortunately, such a practice
Is not necessary, but one should know
When Inoculation should be practiced.
There Is no simple test by which one
can tell whether Inoculation Is ncc-
to try them. Most any soil will do for
them, but like the wild varieties that
always manage to get Into a patch of
leaf mold or other good soil, the tame
varieties will do much better if they
are given a fairly moist and rather
fertile place to grow. Moisture Is very
necessary or the berries will be small,
hard and tasteless. In picking wild
blackberries, did you ever notice that
the finest, biggest, sweetest and black
est ones always grew in the edge of. a
woods and in a low, moist place?
"Put out the blackberry cuttings In
rows Just as soon as the frost Is out
of the ground." Leave plenty of space
between the rows for a full-grown vino

Put the canes not closer than three
feet apart In the row. In a little while
after the vines get a good start they
will. mat together In such a way that
you can't get through them unless they

Garden Crop Between Rows.
If the spring Is. wet the berries will
get along all right, but If there Is a
long dry period within a few weeks
after they are put out It will be best
to water them a little from time t
time. The first two or three years after
they are put out some sort of a garden
crop should be grown between the
rows, as this will loosen the soil and
help the blackberry canes.
It Is a good plan to continue the cul
tivation indefinitely, as the vines will
choke each other out by growing be
tween the rows If they are left undis
turbed. Little ennes will start up all
summer long unless they are kept
down by cultivation. If left to them
selves they will quickly take up all
