No sick headache, biliousness,
bad taste or constipation
by morning.
Get a 10-cent box.
Are you keeping your bowels, liver,
and stomach clean, pure and fresh
with Cascarets, or merely forcing a
passageway every few days with
Salts, Cathartic Pills, Castor Oil or
Purgative Waters?
Stop having a bowel wash-day. Let
Cascarets thoroughly cleanse and reg
ulate the stomach, remove the sour
and fermenting food and foul gases,
take the excess bile from the liver
and carry out of the system all the
constipated waste matter and poisons
in the bowels.
A Cascaret to night will make you
feel great by morning. They work
while you sleep never gripe, slckeo
or cause any inconvenience, and cost
only 10 cents a box from your store.
Millions of men and women take a
Cascaret now and then and never
have Headache, Biliousness, Coated

One morning the physician fell over

With honorific decorations being so
generally and generously bestowed
upon fighting men, one must expect
to hear disparaging comments every
now and then upon the individuals
who are decorated. Such was the re

heard that another German colonel
had got his third medal. Somebody
asked what for?
"Why," was the saturnine reply, "it
is perfectly simple. They gave him
the third medal because he had two,
the second because he had one, and
the first because he had none."

(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
The farmer who is chiefly concerned
with making a living for his family
will find it cheaper to grow a large
portion of his own meat than to buy it
all from the store with the cash pro
ceeds of some money crop. Hogs may
be raised profitably on practically
every southern farm, and if properly
managed, should supply money as well
food. Early settlers in the corn belt
gave the name of "mortgage lifters" to
their hogs; they can raise a mortgage
in the South as well as in the corn
Four things are necessary if the
southern farmer wishes to get a start.
1. A place to raise and fatten pigs.
2. A pig worth raising and fattening.
3. Feed on which to raise and fatten
4. The necessary funds.
Let us consider these points in re
verse order.
1. This article Is wrjtten for the
man whose principal concern is to sup
ply food for his family. For such a
man one or two sows will be enough.
Good grade sows can be bought for
$10 or $15 each; razorbacks can be
bought for lead and will produce good
pigs if bred to a good pure-bred boar.
If there is no pure-bred boar in the
neighborhood whose services can be
obtained, enough men should club to
gether to represent the ownership of
20 to 25 sows and buy a good boar,
paying pro rata for the boar, depend
ing on the number of sows owned by
each. Boars can be bought for from
$10 to $25 foi weaned pigs, and from
$50 to $100 for yearling and two-year-old
hogs. If 20 men owning 20 sows
bought a yearling boar for $50, each
man would pay $2.50 toward the price
of the boar. Put the boar in the hands
of one of the members of the club
and let each other member agree to
pay him one pig at weaning time for
the care of the boar for one year, for
attending to the breeding, etc. When
sows come in heat, they can be loaded
oi. a wagon and carried to the farm
where the boar is kept for service.
2. Sows farrow almost exactly 16
weeks after they are bred. When the
sow farrows try to be near at hand.
Do not worry her with attention, but
be there if she needs it. Watch that
the buzzards do not carry off the little
pigs or injure the sow. Give her a
warm, thin slop as soon as she begins
to move around. Then leave her alone
for a while. That evening give her a
slop with a little bran or cornmeal in
it. Feed lightly for a few days and
increase her feed gradually until the
sow is getting abrit four pounds of
grain each day for each 100 pounds of
her weight. This will be within a week
or ten days after she has farrowed.
She should be fed morning and eve
ning. Kitchen scraps and slops will
be good for her and will reduce the
grain needed somewhat. These slops
must not contain any soap or glass.
As corn is the most available grain
in most sections of the South, it will
have to be relied on for feeding both
the sows and pigs. With the grazing
crops which are suggested for hogs a
fairly well-balanced ration will be obtained.
When you are about ready to wean
the pigs reduce the sow's feed so that
by the time the pigs are weaned she
will have only about two pounds of
grain each day for each 100 pounds of
her weight. Keep her on a Bermuda
pasture and let her have this ration
until she is in good condition.
Sows can be made to produce two
litters each year. When this is de
sired they should be bred at the first
period of heat after the pigs are
weaned. Sows bred twice each year
will not produce so many pigs in each
litter as when bred only once a year,
but more pigs should be raised in a
year from each sow.
It does not pay to try to raise hogs
on grain alone. In fact, the profit in
pig raising, especially in the South,
depends directly on the amount of pas
ture of some kind used to enable the
pig to make its gain In weight Of the
southern forage cropn peanuts, soy
beans, rape and cowpeas are especially
valuable. Now, these are not avail
able aK through the year, therefore we j
use a series of crops. For example,
have some winter oatB on which the
sows can turned as soon as the pigs
are a week or two old. When these
are gone put the pigs on good Ber
muda and lespedeza pasture. Have a
crop of soy beans or cowpeas coming
and turn the pigs on this after wean
ing, keeping the sows on the Ber
muda. When these are gone put the
pigs in a peanut patch, and finish fat
tening them on rape
The pigs should be weaned at ten or
twelve weeks of age and should then
weigh about 30 pounds. They shoul
have learned to eat a little grain by
going to the sow's trough. Then be
gin to feed them. Give them every
day grain equal to 2 per cent of their
weight. A pig weighing 30 pounds
should have 3-5 pound of grain; ten
pigs of this weight, six pounds, etc
Divide this into two feeds, morning
and evening. This amount of grain
will make them grow nicely on good
pasture.' As they grow, increase the
amount of grain. When they weigh
about 125 pounds give them 3 per cent
of their weight In grain, and when
they weigh about 150 pounds each give
them 4 per cent and finish them off,
slaughtering in the winter on a cool
day. Pigs properly fed should weigh
200 pounds at nine months old. Do not
feed cottonseed meal to hogs.
It Is not necessary to spend a lot of
money to carry out such a plan. Of
course, the Bermuda pasture where
the sows are turned should have a
good fence. The crops on which the
pigs are grazed etui be fenced with
homemade hurdles of lumber or woven
wire, which may be moved as desired,
and the pigs will stay in it while the
pasture Is good. Ten pigs can be
kept on half an acre of one of the
crops mentioned above from four to
eight weeks, depending on their size
3. A poor pig is not worth raising or
feeding. Your pigs should be sired
by a good pure-bred Duroc Jersey,
Berkshire, or Poland China boar. After
you have decided which of the three
you want, stick to the same breed and
in a little while you will have pigs
which are very much alike, a model
for others, and an advertisement for
your community. If you can afford it,
start with good grade sows. If not,
natives (razorbacks) will do. White
pigs should not be used In the South,
as they sunburn badly.
4. Expensive houses are not neces
sary for hogs in the South. Give the
sow a dry place to farrow, a pen well
bedded and sheltered from cold winds
and storms, and both she and the pigs
will do well. Little pigs that get
chilled or wet soon after birth often
die or grow into "runts." If there is
no suitable place around the farm for
the sow, make a lean-to with poles,
about 10 by 12 feet, six feet high in
front and four feet high behind, facing
it to the south, and thatch it with
straw, cheap hay, or even cornstalks,
and the litter will be Well housed.
Make the thatch roof higher in the
middle than at the sides and smooth
It down so that rain will run off.
Two sows should raise five pigs
each, giving the farmer ten pigs to
slaughter. These pigs should weigh,
when slaughtered, 200 pounds each,
making 2,000 pounds of live weight.
This costs about 3 cents per pound
to make in the Soutli under the system
described above, which is an original
cost of $70. Killing will cost not over
$6. The loss in dressing is about 30
per cent of the live weight, or 600
pounds on ten pigs, so that 1,400
pounds of dressed pork is on hand aft
er slaughtering. If you can get a local
Ice plant to chill and cure the meat
for you, the manager should charge
not over four cents per pound, which
Is $56. Then the meat loses weight
In curing, amounting to about one cent
per pound, or $14. The total cost of
the meat is about as follows:
Raising 2,000 pounds, at 3 Ms cents
per pound $ 70
Curing 1,400 pounds, at 4 cents
per pound 66
Shrinkage on 1,400 pounds, at 1
cent per pound 14

Every mother realties, after giving
her children "California Syrup ot
Figs" that this la their Ideal laxative,
because they love its pleasant taste
and It thoroughly cleanses the tender
little stomach, liver and bowels with
out griping.
When cross, irritable, feverish, or
breath is bad, stomach sour, look at
the tongue, mother! If coated, give a
teaspoonful of this harmless "fruit
laxative," and in a few hours all the
foul, constipated waste, sour bile and
undigested food passes out of the bow
els, and you have a well, playful child
again. When its little system Is full
of cold, throat sore, has stomach-ache,
diarrhoea, indigestion, colic remem
ber, a good "inside cleaning" should
always be the first treatment given.
Millions of mothers keep "California
Syrup of Figs" handy; they know a
teaspoonful today saves a sick child
tomorrow. Ask at the store for a 50
cent bottle of "California Syrup of
Figs," which has directions for babies,
children of all ages and grown-ups
