To the Women of Montana:
Some of you have loved ones strick

Let me give you hope. I can speak
because I know. I was stricken with
Diabetes myself. Only Diabetics can
understand the tortures-the hopeless

tal (one of our best). 'iney told me I
was incurable. I grew worse. (sugar
was 11 per cent) and went to the
Cooper ,Medical College for examina
tilon. Same verdict-incurable. Thor
Qughly discouraged I went home to
1ie. A hrs. Clark then living at 1013
Larkin street called to tell me there
was a cure and where to get it The
third week the dreadful thirst dimin
fshed. I began to sleep better and in
a year I was perfectly well.
I have a large boarding house on the
comner of Powell and Sutter. One of
.9Be boarders is 'Wmin. White, formerly
P,:ieputy City Assessor. He had to give
'ti his Ipsittion due to Bright's Disease

ioble was and told him he could get

valleys. The temperature was quite
avorable to crop growth till the 23rd
to 25th, when a cool change came,
giving light frosts in the western

is good and in many places excellent.
Alfalfa haying is progressing favor
ably. Winter wheat is heading; mead
ws will be short in most western
counties; oats and spring wheat made
air growth; garden vegetables and
potatoes retarded by the cool weather,
