Kidney trouble has
become so prevalent
that it is not uncom
"mon for a child to be
born afflicted with
weak kidneys. If the
childurinates too often, if the urine scalds
the flesh, or if, when the child reaches an
age when it should be able to control the
passage, it is yet afflicted with bed-wet
ting, dependupon it, the cause of the diffi
culty is kidney trouble, and the firsc
step should be towards the treatment of
these importantorgans. Thisunpleasant
trouble is due to a diseased condition of
the kidneys and bladder and not to a
habit as most people suppose.
Women as well as men are made miser
able with kidney and bladder trouble,
and both need the same great remedy.

for the French Panama Canal com

transfer of the canal property to the
United States for the consideration of
$40,000.000. He Is supposed to have
received a fee for these servIces to the

whether the crop, after all the year's
hard labor for themselves and their
families, will be worth thirteen cents
or ten cents or seven cents, because
they do not know what the bank power

whether Democratic or Republican, it
is simply a megaphone for the banks.
The newspapers of the popular schools
of politics pretend to scrap over many
other matters, but when it comes to
backing up and sustaining a Federal
administration in any move that is ac
ceptable to the banks, no matter by
what party that administration was
placed in power, those newspapers are
all one in cheering the administration.
The National bank power is the su

banks want interest, not only on their
own money, but on yours and your
neighbor's. It is for interest-un

operate. The 'people's Government

In order to reduce the loss in ma

and practice should be to haul it di
rectly from the stable to the field and
spread it at once. On the average farm
the following of this practice all
through the year would result in less
loss than any method that could be
The use of rotted manure rather:
than fresh manure is desirable in con-*
nection with many market garden or
vegetable crops, as it gives quicker
Iresults and with root crops will give
a smoother and nicer product. =
Manure should be spread as soon as
it is hauled to the field. The practice
of putting it in piles is objectionable
because of the loss that is likely to oc
cur. The placing in piles also involves
additional labor.
The manner of spreading will de
pend upon local conditions, but where
the distance to haul is relatively short
and it is desired to have it evenly I
spread the manure spreaders will be
found serviceable machines.
From ten to twenty tons of manure,
per acre is usually considered a fair'
application; but considerably more is
frequently applied for market garden
crops. Experiments have shown that
generally it would be far more profit
able to use about one-half the usual
quantities and to supplement it with
commercial fartili-rs.

No farmer should lose sight of the
fact that all fertilizers have great
value, and not a pound of fertilizer
should be allowed to go to waste. On
general principles a farmer should be
always working Into his soil the mate
rials that will make plant food. An
abundance cf plant food Is required In
the soil, if farming is to be carried on
profitably. It should be remembered
that every particle of vegetable mat
ter makes fertility when it decays, and
should be worked into the soil The
nonappreciation of this fact leads to
the loss of large quantities of barn
yard manure, which is allowed to gp
to waste In various ways.
