The year 1912 hag been a good one for that famous bird, the stprk. According to the records of City Clerk Morgan 117 babies weie born in Herlngton during the past year, while the num ber of deaths recorded waa it. These figures show that Old Father Time Is gradually losing out in the race. They also show that reformers need not worry about the race suicide problem in Herlngton. "If the birth rate keeps on in creasing as it has been," said City Clerk Morgan, "it won't he many years until the city will have to hire an assistant to keep track of them. One day last year eight babies were recorded on the books, ana Judging from the increase since the recording system was installed, It looks like that record will be broke this year." Summing all things up, if you are looking for a place to be born In, you can't beat Herlngton. CONCORDIA WANTS A NORMAL. Senator Carney Will Introduce BUI for State School There. Concordia, Jan. 9.

It is quite true that some of these troubles may reach a stage where an operation is the only resource, but thousands of women have avoided the necessity of an operation by taking Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. This fact is attested by the grateful letters they write to us after their health has been restored.

One year ago I found myself a terrible sufferer. 1 bad pains in both aides and such a soreness 1 could scarcely staighten up at times. Mr back ached, I had no appetite ana was so nervous I could not sleep, then I would be so tired mornings that I could scarcely pet around. It seemed almost im possible to move or do a bit of work and I thought I never would be any better until I submitted to an opera tion. I commenced taking Lydia E. Piakham's Vegetable Compound and Boon felt like a new woman. I bad well hltd rood aODO- tite and waa fat and could do almost all my own work for a family of four. I ahall always feel that I owe my good health to your medicine." Mrs. Hatwabd Sowers, Cary, Me. Charlotte, N. C "I was In bad health for two years, with pains in both aides and was very nervous. If I even lifted a chair it would cause a hemorrhage. I had a growth which the doctor said was a tumor and I never would get well unless I bad an operation. A friend advised ms to take Lydia E.

"This bsck to the farm movement Is much ' of it nonsense." declared Frank W, Blackmar, professor of sociology at the state university, today before the state board of agriculture. "We have gone too far from the simple life ever to return to it. If the average city man went back to the farm he would be a failure, and only, still further decrease the yield per acre. The sneaker was discussing "Some Factors in the High Cost of Living." "We must admit," he said, "that the big factor in holding down the living cost if the production of more and better crops on the farm; scien tific. Intensive farming has become. l . ..

"A municipal market house ougj&t to be also one of the assets of every . a J city. Then whenever tne price oi nrnitnce went too high, by reason of a monopoly, the city could go In to business along that line ; nd break' the market, as was done re cently in the egg market in several Eastern cities. These two measures would help in holding down the in creasing cost of living." , v ' V BROWN TO BE THE SPEAKER? ' s , ,,..v Orr's Senatorial Ambition May Hurt His State Chances, Topeka, Jan. 11.
