of several popular varieties in a hot
bed, and having more than are
needed for the home demand she
will sell them as long as they last.
Better order them at once. These
plants are superior in every way*to
those shipped from Florida and
are also better adapted to this cli
Are You Rheumatic?-Try
If you want <|tiick and real relief
from Rheumatism, do what so many
thousand other people are doing
whenever an attack comes on, bathe
the sore muscle or joint with Sloan's
Liniment. No need to rub it in -
just apply the Liniment to the sur
face. It is wonderfully penetrating.
It goes r?ght to the seat of trouble
and draws the pain almost imme

Liniment for 25c. of any druggist
and have it in the house-against
Colds, Sore and Swollen joints,
Lumbago, Sciatica and like ailments.
Your money back if not satisfied,
