i WITHERS THE BODY Workers Sick and Weak From j " Exertion Take Gude's I Pepto-Mangan. i ' Men and women who toil, either physically or mentally, use up energy, i When they overwork- they use up more energy, and sometimes the blood gets in a run-down condition. Without rest the blood cuunot get back to nor mal, so that it becomes clogged with waste mutter from over-exertion. The clogged blood virtually withers the body. The strained looks on pale faces, the thin, bloodless arms, the sunken cheeks and necks, the dead tired feeling, are the results of stale blood depriving the system of life giving oxygen. Workers go to the drug store and get Gude's Pepto-Mangan when they feel weak and run down. They take it In either the liquid or the tablet form. That makes the blood rich and red and drives out the poisons. Life-giving oxygen, carried by the little red cells, renews the strength and builds up the ntire system.

Distribution Left to Whim of Card Will Written on Shirt Cuff Found in Books. "The Pack of Curds Case" was re ferred to In Justice Bargrave Dearie's court tire other week and It Is one of the most remarkable of what may be termed haphazard bequests, a writer in London Answers observe. The testatrix, suffering from a puralytlc stroke, had a pack of curds dealt to her by her solicitor bearing the names of her relatives. On another pack were details of her various properties. The solicitor "dealt" her a card with the name of a person, and she played to It a card with un Item of her estate on It. The solicitor gathered the trick, and the trick was done; hut whether everybody was satisfied trat they were lucky at cards is another matter. A man who was found In a dying condition, having met with gun acci dent while out shooting alone, had written his last will and testament on tils shirt cuff with a fountain pen. It was dulyjsigned and as iis provisions were very simple and Its Intention tb viously sincere, it passed muster with out any difficulty. Shipwrecked sailors have made their wills upon the most strange things empty meat-tins, the soles of their boots, a handkerchief anything they could lay their hands on at the last moment.

If in town, then In the cheapest cofHn, the cheapest cemetery, like a pauper. No flowers, no wreaths, no speeches, without priests or liturgy If possible." Book collectors occasionally come across strange rinds. On oifi of the bookstalls by the side of the Seine a book-lover found two pages of an old volume stuck together. He opened them carefully and found three bank notes for 1,000 francs each ; also a note which read as follows: "Friend, whoever thou art, be lega tee without remorse of this little for tune. It Is all my pen has brought me In 50 yenrs. May the muses be more favorable to thee, for thou art surely a man of letters." Then fol lowed the writer's Initials and the date. But the most haphazard will on rec ord was the one which said : "I own 71 pairs of trousers. It Is my desire that they b sold by public auction, and that the product of their sale be distributed among the deserving poor. They must be sold to the highest bid ders, but no one must be allowed to purchase two pairs." The 71 pairs of pants were knocked down to as many bidders, and the proceeds handed over to the parochial authorities for distribution. A few days after the sale one of the buyers look it Into his head to examine his purchase more carefully, "and he found stitched securely In the waistband a small canvas bag containing ten $100 notes.

SOLUTION OF TRANSPORTATION PROBLEMS SEEN IN MOTORTRUCK fQ t x 1 r ' 1 1 1 v '1 11 Elv ivtf l AW&r 4UJfc5rwT toner"-" to; ffiffiL. i : .pit l.s Farm Truck in This Load Will Go Directly to Dealer at a Market Fifteen Miles Away and Arrive in Fresh Condition. (Prepared by the United Statea Department of Agriculture.) A steadily Increasing number of shippers are looking toward the mo tortruck for the solution of their trans portation problems. Farmers are In cluded In this category, and It may therefore be well to point out, as the result of actual experience of others, the things they should consider In con nection with the use of motortrucks to haul their produce to market. In very few instances, say experts of the bureau of markets, United States Department of Agriculture, Is it advisable for a farmer to purchase and operate a motortruck solely for his own needs, as the Initial Invest ment, cost of upkeep, and the limited time the truck Is likely to be in use make the venture expensive and dis proportionate to the convenience se cured. Where trucks are operated by pri vate individuals for pnoflt the owner of the truck usually operates between certain points on a fixed schedule. The farmer assumes no risk. lie simply pays whatever the rate for cartage may be, and may find the use of this means of transportation an advantage over the railroad or over hauling his produce to market lilmself by team. At the same time it has often occurred that when the farmer had learned to depend upon this service, the rates would be raised to a point that the farmer could ill afford to pay, or that another motortruck operator would en ter the field with the result that both operators were compelled to go out of business, leaving the farmer without any truck service at all. One Successful Venture. It may be well to consider the basis upon which a farmer may secure mo tortruck transportation at a nominal cost and create a service upon which he can place full reliance. There are several co-operative mo tortruck associations in existence, of which, perhaps, the Farmers' Co-operative company of Hartford county, Maryland, has had the largest measure of suceess. The territory served by the association is a very productive agricultural region. Many of the farm ers ship milk to Baltimore, some raise truck crops and others practice gen eral farming. The association rates on rgany com modities are decidedly lower than those of the railroad. The members say that the saving of time In market ing their produce is a big advantage, also. For example, when the farmers hauled their produce to market by wagon they had to start out at mid night and did not return home until nine o'clock the next morning. Now, at least eight hours of that time is saved for other work. But while the Hartford County com pany has had considerable success, It conditions not been possible had the condition not been favorable for the operation of a co-operative motortruck route. This fact should not be lost sight of; and for the benefit of those contemplating the establishment of co operative motortruck associations the STATE BUREAUS GET QUICK INFORMATION Connected With Washington Of fice by Telegraph. At Each Point State Officials Are Able to "Listen In" on Market News Messages Being Transmitted to the Offices. Four state marketing bureaus are now connected with the Washington office of the bureau of markets and crop estimates, United States Depart ment of Agriculture, by telegraph wire. "Drops" from the Federal leased-wire system extend Into the state bureau offices at Trenton, N. J. ; Lancaster and Harrisburg, Pa.; Madison, Wis., and Lincoln, Neb., and at each point the state officials are able to "listen In" on the market news messages being sent to and from the various branch offices of the federal bureau. following points should receive care ful consideration: Factors to Be Considered. A careful survey should be made to determine the adequacy of present transportation facilities, the reason ableness of the rates charged, the ap proximate dally tonnage available for movement In each direction, the char acter of the roads over which the trucks must be operated, and the gen eral sentiment of the community to ward such an association.. The dis tance from market should not be more than 40 miles, and there should be sufficient volume of produce to war rant reasonably constant operation of the trucks throughout the year. It having been concluded that the co-operative enterprise will be a de cided advantage, only men who have demonstrated their business ability in handling their private affairs and who exercise a good Influence among the members of the community should be selected as directors. The secretary 8hduld be a man with energy, tact, business ability, and a high apprecia tion of the farmer's Interests. The capitalization of the association should be large enough to permit the issuance of enough stock to pay for the trucks in cash, to assure a sufficient amount of cash on. hand as working capital, and to have enough unissued stock to provide for future sound extension of the business, os well as a depreciation fund to replace worn-out equipment. Make Service the Watchword. The trucks should be selected, only after a. thorough and unbiased consid eration of the various makes. Records of performance, of cost of operation and maintenance, furnished by actual operators of trucks rather than by agents of truck manufacturers, should be carefully considered in the light of present and prospective needs of tho association. In employing operators merit should be the sole consideration. Rates should be based on a careful analysis of com plete, adequate and accurate informa tion regarding costs. Accounting methods should be simple but .suffi ciently comprehensive to show the ex act financial status of the association at all times. In determining matters of policy the Interests cf the members as a whole rather than as Individuals must be considered. Service must be the watchword. And to make the associa tion a real success, each member must feel that It Is his association. Encouraging Exercise. Induce exercise by feeding all grain In dry clean straw litter, six to eight inches deep. The .common straws, in order of their desirability, are wheat, oats, barley, rye, buckwheat. Shred ded or cut corn stalks, shavings or leaves may be used where straw 19 not available. Better Prices for Eggs. Eggs that are gathered often, kept clean and cool, and are candled nd graded bring better prices at the mar ket than the "Just eggs" kind. In most cases distribution of the market news Is done by means of special news releases to the dally and weekly newspapers and the farm Jour nal press. In one Instance the market Information is distributed by means of mimeographed reports mailed di rect to farmers and other agricultural Interests. In Pennsylvania the work of distribution Is facilitated by elffht reporters located in Important market centers, who supplement the national news with local information regarding supply, demand and prices. The marked increased appreciation of the value of agricultural market news and its wider distribution through dally and weekly reports Is In a large measure due to the pro gressive program adopted by the Na tional Association of State Marketing Officials, which believes that one of the prerequisites of Improvement in the nation's machinery for marketing agricultural products Is a national and local market news service that will give producers accurate reports as speedily as possible after the ici:Ket lng transactions taue place.
