From the Republican Columbus Ind
The Hartsville College situated at Harts
ville Indiana was founded years ago in the
interest of the United Brethren Church
when the state Tas mostly a wilderness and
colleges were scarce The college is well
known throughout the country former stu
dents having gone into all parts of the world
A reporter recently called at this famous
BCat Of Ipnrninfr Jin1 V nc clirmr infntllQrnnm
of the President Prof Alvin P Barhaby I
W hen last seen by the reporter Prof Barn
aby was in delicate health To day he was
apparently in the best of health In re
sponse to an inquiry the professor said
Oh yes I am much better than for some
time I am now in perfect health but my
recovery was brought about in rather a
peculiar way
Tell me about it said the reporter
Well to begin at the beginning said
the professor I studied too hard when at
school endeavoring to educate myself for
the professions After completing the com
mon course 1 came here and graduated from
the theological course I entered the min
istry and accepted the charge of a United
Brethren Church at a small place in Kent
County Mich Being of an ambitious na
ture 1 applied myself diligently to my work
and studies In time I noticed that my
health was failing My trouble was indiges
tion and this with other troubles brought
on nervousness
My physician prescribed for me for some
time and advised me to take a change of
climate I did as requested and was some
improved Soon after I came here as a pro
fessor in physics and chemistry and later
was financial agent of this college The
change agreed with me and for awhile my
health was better but my duties were heavy
and again I found my trouble returning
This time it was more severe and in the
winter I became completely prostrated I
hied various medicines and different physi
cians finally I was able to return to my
duties Last spring I was elected president
of the college Again I had considerable
work and the trouble which had not been
entirely cured began to affect me and
last fall I collapsed I had different doctors
but none did me any good Professor Bow
man who is professor of natural science told
me of his experience with Dr Williams Pink
Pills for Pale People and urged me to give
them a trial because they had benefited
him in a similar case and 1 concluded to tiy

Convincing Tails Betvreen a Farmer
and a Money Lender a
The following conversation between
a Wisconsin farmer in Calumet county
and a money lender not a regular bank
er but one of those men of means who
make out all of their own papers and
manage to get as mucli out of a loan
as possible including the highest notch
in the matter of interest is not only of
interest to the friends of good roads
but is very convincing
I have dropped in to collect the in
terest on that mortgage Mr Williams
remarked the boot leg banker
Tin ready for you but in order to be
ready I had to sell a coujple of cows
Here is something I have been reading
with a good deal of interest Look it
over while I get the money for you
When Mr Williams returned he
asked his neighbor how he liked the
O I guess its as good as any of the
good roads stuff they are printing these
Look it over while
of it
I dont take any stock in any
The roads are good enough for
me I dont -want to be called upon
to help make them any better
We differ I take deep interest in
the good roads discussion The roads
are not good enough for me I want
to help make them better If we had
good roads the past 20 years I would
not now be paying you interest on this
mortgage on my farm
Talk sense man Has this good
roads agitation turned your head too
You talk just as two or three of your
neighbors do
Thank you Im glad to hear it
It is a sign that they too have been
doing some thinking
How would good roads have bettered
your condition
I cannot take time to tell you all of

Tnrnips Hnrt Millc Flavor
At the Iowa station it was found that
j turnips injure the flavor of both milk
and butter This injury is due to vola
tile acids which can be driven off by
heating the milk to 160 degrees for a
short time Beets increased the milk
and butter product and caused all the
cows even Jerseys to lay on fat quite
rapidly When the roots were discon
tinued butter fat decreased and the
cows ceased to gain weight and it took
more pounds of feed calculated to dry
matter to produce a pound of butter
When turned on pasture there was im
mediate increase of milk butter and
live weight Feeding bran during part
of the grazing period produced suffi
cient gain to yield a small profit

Artichokes Possess More Nutritive
Value Than Other Rootw
The wonderful productiveness and
ease with which the improved variety
can be produced is always a surprise
the first time to those who cultivate
them They are an excellent food for
cattle sheep and horses and one of the
cheapest and healthiest hog foods
raised and for milch cows they ex
cel any root I ever fed for increasing
the flow and making the milk much
richer Last winter this variety was
tested at the Fremont creamery on a
small scale and the report was very
good Chemical analysis proves that
the artichoke isnt behind in nutrition
compared with other roots

The above is taken from the Ameri

tion of an artichoke is in the form of
sugar therefore always ready for use
on the jart of the eater One acre will
keep from 20 to 30 head of hogs dur
ing the winter months I find that low
black soil land which is too frosty for
many crops is fine soil for the arti
choke for freezing will not injure
They often yield on good land as high
as S00 bushels per acre There is a vast
difference in artichokes The native
or wild kind is worthless while the
improved variety is of great value I
grow the improved white French grown
largely in France for domestic use as
well as for stock Some time ago they
were introduced into this country and
close cultivation has proven them to-
be a sure and profitable crop for this
I have been experimenting with them
for over five years in the way of culti
vating harvesting feeding and keep
ing over winter They are very profit
able because no insect blight or rust
has yet struck them and the tops make
a fodder superior to corn when proper-
ly handled I find keeping them through
winter is a difficult thing to do without
having them spoil unless a person un
derstands it I will give my method
I pick out a dry spot and dig a pit not
over ten inches deep and about five
feet wide and as long as convenient
Then I pile the tubers up to a peak
putting on a shallow layer of straw
and not over five inches of dirt If more
dirt is put on they will surely heat and
spoil and if they freeze solid it will
not injure the growing or feeding quali
ties it makes them sweeter and bet

A Convincing Letter From One of Mrs Pinkhams Admfrerg
2To woman can look fresh and fair who is suffering from displacement of
the womb It is ridiculous to suppose that such a difficulty can be cured by
an artifical support like a pessary
Artificial supports make matters worse for they take away all the chance
of the ligaments recovering their vigor and tone Use strengthens the liga
W Tkmw
ments have a work to doL -
If they grow flabbj and refuse to hold the womb in
place tfiere is but oneremedy and that is to strengthen
their fibres and draw the cords back into their normal
condition thus righting the position of the womb
Lydia E Pinkhams Vegetable Compound is designed
especially for this purpose and taken in connection -with
her Sanative Wash applied locally wall -tone up
the uterine system strengthening the cords or
ments which hold up the womb -
Any woman who suspects that she has this trouble
and she will know it by a dragging weight in the
lower abdomen irritability of the bladder and tectum
great fatigue in walking and leucorrhoea should
promptly commence the use of Lydia E Pinkhaars
Vegetable Compound If the case is stubborn write to
Mrs Pmkham Lynn Mass stating freely all symp
toms You will receive a prompt letter of advice free
of charge All letters are read and answered b wo
men only The following letter relates to an un
usually severe case of displacement of the womb
which was cured by the Pinkham remedies Surely
This Man Carried a Lighted Lamp
Several Blocks
An amusing case of absent-mindedness
wa experienced by a young south
sider the other evening says the Pitts
burgh Chronicle Telegraph The young
man is usually of a bright nature but
for some time past his friends have been
noticing that he does some peculiar
things Notlong ago he- was at a recep
tion and a f ew minutes before closing
time he went to the coat box and se
cured his hat and coat Then he walked
upstairs to the dancingfloor and picked
up another coat and walked home with
it on his arm Arriving at his home he
found that he had one coat on and an
other on his arm The next day he found
the owner of the extra coat and mutual
explanations followed and all was well
But that has been eclipsed by his latest
exploits He had finished his toilet and
started for the street As soon as he
made his appearance he was greeted
with smiles from everybody who saw
him He walked down the street and
could not imagine what made the pass
ersby smile at him Finally he reached
the restaurant where he takes his meals
then he realized that he was carrying
something in his hand He looked at
it and found that he had carried the
lighted lamp from his room and had
walked several blocks along the main
street with it in his hand
Another case is cited concerning the
same young man At the office where
he is employed he lias occasion to an
swer many calls at the telephone One
evening he wis reading a book in his
room when an alarm clock rang in an
adjoining room The absent minded
youth got up and commenced to yell
Hello Hello and when the occupant
of the other room inquired as to the
cause of the yelling the young man said
in a sheepish manner Oh I thought
it was the telephone bell ringing
was a boy I was
troubled with dropsy
my legs svelling until I
could not walk and finally
bursting open and
lg sores The doc
tors gave me up and said I
could not live At tliis time I

it is convincing
Lydia E Pinkhams Vegetable Compound
and Blood Purifier cured me when the doc
tors had given me up I had spent hun
dreds of dollars searching for a cure but found lit- -
tie or norelief until I began the Pinkham remedies
I had falling and displacement of the womb so badly that
for two years I could not walk across the floor I also had pro
fuse menstruation kidney liver and stomach trouble The doctors said my
case was hopeless I had taken only four bottles of the Vegetable Compound
and one of the Blood Purifier when I felt like a new person I am now cured
much to the surprise of niy friends for they all gave me up to die Now many
of myiady friends are using Lydia E Pinkhams Vegetable Compound through
my recommendation and are regaining health It has also cured my little son
of kidney trouble I would advise every suffering woman in the land to write
to Mrs Pinkham for aid Mks Emma Pangboun Alanson Mich

authority on electric metal working
believes that there is no doubt whatevei
of the possibility of melting through
masses or iron and steel of even con
siderable thickness provided there is
time enough to do it and sufficient cur
rent is available but he thinks the
paraphernalia which the burglai
would have to carry along and have at
his disposal for the attempted work -v
would be a sufficient discouragement in
itself while the time required and the
risk of discovery would be so great as
to remove the operation from among
the possibilities
