The most successful remedy in this
country for the cure of all forms of
female complaints is Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound. It lias
stood the test of years and to-day is
more widely and successfully used than
any other female remedy. It has cured
thousands of women who have been
troubled with displacements, inflam
mation, ulceration, fibroid tumors, ir.
regularities, periodic pains, backache,
that bearing-down feeling, flatulency,
indigestion, and nervous prostration,
after all other means had failed.
If you are suffering from any of these
ailments, don't give up hope until you
have given Lydia E. Pinkham'a Vege
table Compound a trial.

Leaves of Cherry «nd Pear Trees Attacked by this Insect
in lowa and Plant Is Often Left
Entirely Bare.
Last summer many cherry trees in
various parts of lowa were stripped
of their leaves by a dull slimy slug.
Pear trees also are attacked by this
pest, perhaps even more than cherry
trees, hence the common name of the
insect. This slug feeds on the upper
surface of the leaves, not eating holes
through them, but taking only the up
per portion and leaving the veins bar®.
Leaves thus eaten by the slugs dry
and fall from the tree and frequently
leave the trees entirely bare of foliage.
In lowa these slugs appear twice
during the season. The first brood
appears in June and the slugs be
come full grown early in July, while

state; d, leaves with slugs, natural size; a, b, c, much enlarged.
the second brood comes on during tlie
month of August. It would be best,
then, to kill off the slugs when they
first appear in June, and so prevent
the defoliation of the trees by the
second brood in August.
When the slugs first appear on the
leaves the trees should be given a
thorough treatment with paris green
or some other arsenical poison. Since
the slugs feed openly on the upper
sides of the leaves there need be lit
tle difficulty in combatting them. For
only a few trees the paris green may
be applied dry, mixed with air slaked
lime, or even flour; 1 part of the paris
green to 'JO or more parts of the other
material. For a liquid spray, paris
green at the rate of 1-3 or 1-4 pound
to 50 gallons of water will do the
work, adding about a pound of quick
laine to each barrel of water to pre
vent any burning of the leaves. Ar-
Incorrectly Put Up and Fed It
May Be Expensive.
Silos have been abandoned in many
cases because the milk became so
badly tainted as to become unsalable.
If the creameries and cheese factories
were as particular as they should be
they would condemn a great deal of
milk that is now accepted from silage
fed herds.
This is not the fault of the silage; it
is the fault of the man who handles it.
Silage has a very penetrative odor,
which is taken up very quickly by
milk. If silage is fed before milking
the milk is quite certain to become
tainted. If the milk is allowed to stand
a few minutes in the barn after milk
ing and silage is fed while the cans
are standing around, the milk will be
If the stable is not ventilated or is
poorly ventilated the silag<" odors will
linger in the stable and taint the milk,
in an iinventilated stable the stable it
self will in time become saturated or
permeated with the silage odor and
will taint the milk, no matter how the
silage is handled.
The corn is frequently cut into the
silo too green, which makes very sour
silage, with a strong odor. The silage
s frequently carelessly handled in the
?table; it. is scattered through the
alleys and allowed to remain on the
floors. In such instances the stable
will be scented with the silage and
the milk will be tainted.
11' good results are expected from
silnge it must be properly handled in
the stable. First, silage must be fed
only after milking. Second, the floors
must be kept clean and no si I ago
allowed to accumulate in the alleys.
Third, there should not be jnoie
silage fed Lhan the stock will clear up
at once. Fourth, the stable must be
well ventilated. Fifth, corn should
not be cut in too green. Sixth, don't
feed moldy silage.
From the foregoing it will lie seen
that silage must Y>e more carefully
handled than ordinary roughage. One

might, straw or hay and got satisfac

senate of lead, 2 or 3 pounds to 50
gallons of water, will do the work
even better than paris green, and Is
preferable where it can be obtained
easily. Hellebore, applied dry, or in
a small quantity of water, is also very
effective in killing the slugs.
The first brood of the slugs is rather
short lived. It requires only about
a month from the egg stage to the
time the slug matures. During most
of the time while it is feeding., the
slug is covered with a slimy sub
stance, but at the last change of skin
the slime is thrown off, and the slug
becomes a light orange color, clean
and dry. After this molt the slug
goes into the ground. Here it forms
.1 cell in the earth, within which it
changes to the pupa, or resting stage,
anil the adult fly emerges in about
12 to 15 days after the slug has en
tered the soil.
The flies which lay the eggs for
the next brood of slugs are rather
small black insects, about a fifth of
an inch long and with four wings.
The eggs are laid in tiny pockets
made by the flies in the under sides
of the leaves. These eggs hatch and
the second brood of the slugs work
«n the trees during August and when
they become full grown goto the
ground. During the winter the slugs
of this second brood may be found in
their cells beneath the trees which
were infested by them in the summer
time. The pear, cherry, plum and
quince are the trees which are most
attacked by these slugs.
Three or Four Cuttings During
Season Enriches It.
When a plant furnishes an abundant
crop, such as alfalfa, with three or
four cutting during a single season, it
is buc natural to think that it will
greatly exhaust the soil. Nothing is
more erroneous. Instead of taking
strength away from the soil it puts
more into it; instead of exhausting it,
the fertility is increased. The pene
trating powers of ill fa'! fa roots are
well known. The roots are constantly
growing and decaying, thus adding to
the "humus" of the soil. The strongest
point in favor of alfalfa as a soil im
prover it its remarkable nitrogen
gathering ability. The roots of al
falfa are full of the small nitrogen
tubercles which represent bottled up
vitality to plant life and it has been
proven by frequent experiments that
increased yields were the rule when
plantings of any kind of crops had
been made on ground infected with ni
trogen bacteria.
Under these circumstances the
"spread of Alfalfa fever" is no wcnder.
With splendid crops of highest priced
hay on top of the ground, with the
roots working as perfectly natural fer
tilizers under the ground, farmers can
do nothing better titan to plant allalfa.
The truth of this statement may be
realized and verified if one but takes
time to look up statistics and reads
about the marvelous increase in the
acreage of alfalfa. In Kansas alone
the acres sown to alfalfa increased
from approximately 35,000 acres iD
IS9I to more than 743.000 acres in
1907. ' It is safe to say that since then
the acreage has increased in propor
tion, and othei states are falling in
line. —A. Kruhm.
There is Profit in Sage.
Twenty-five cents' worth of sage seed
will furnish about 1,000 plants. Enough
sage can be picked the first year to
pay lor all the labor of sowing and
picking the sage. Early in the spring
the plants should be removed, set in
rows three feet apart one way and
half that distance the other. If the
plants are planted in good soil and
properly cultivated they can be picked
three times each year for s«.ve<«U

A Sure and Easy Test on Coffee.
To decide the all important ques

really the hidden cause of physical
ails and approaching fixed diseases,
one should make a test, of ten days by
leaving off coffee entirely and using
well-made Postum.
If relief follows you may know to
a certainty that coffee has been
your vicious enemy. Of course you
can take it back to your heart again,
if you like to keep sick.

coffee, but I would not acknowledge
that it caused my suffering.
"Then I read so many articles about
Postum that I decided to give it a fair
trial. I had not used it two weeks in
place of coffee until I began to feel
like a different person. The headache
and nervousness disappeared and

months arid had never been sick a

that caused the trouble, so I began

I was soon convinced that coffee was
the cause of all my misery and I went
back to Postum with the result that
I was soon well and strong again and
determined to stick to Postum and
leave coffee alone in the future."
