The sympathetic tenderness of a lov
ing husband is everything to an expec
tant mother, especially during her first
ordeal. George Layton, Esq., a promi
nent druggist of Dayton, O., gives the
following case :
A customer of mine, whose wife has used
four bottles of "Mother's Friend" before con
finement, says, after seeing the effects of the
remedy, that'if she had to jo through the ordeal
again, and there were but four bottles on the
market, and the cost was $100 per bottle, she
would have them.
" Mother's Friend " is a scientifically
compounded liniment -which affords cer
tain relief in the various ailments pre
ceding childbirth, and assures proper
elasticity to the cords and muscles in
volved in the final ordeal.
"Mother's Friend" is sold by drug
gists, or expressed on receipt of one

Farmers who pack their fruit so that
all of the large apples, or potatoes are
at the head of the barrel, and the re

third class produce, should not com
plain if they have prices cut. The
merchant who sells such stuff is held
responsible in our best markets, and
must do what he can to protect his
trade. The farmer who resorts to
questionable tricks of this kind must
soon suffer. A visit to the markets
and a study of conditions and demands
may often change the profit and loss
on the farm. Epitomist
There are numerous instances where
"hired men" are better feeders than
their employers. This often account
ed for the fact that the hired man

uses. There are a lot of fellows who
feed their own grain who are altogeth
er too careful of the feed to ever make
those slick, fat backen pigs that sell
well. If you are one of these "care"
