Monongalia Musings
It has been suggested that the
entlemen who have vacations, those
ensible enough to like work, should
*ko this year's vacation on a farm,
'he idea is sensible enough and should
e heartily accepted. There is no use
1 anyone being too dignified to work
n a farm. To shirk and joaf when
ou have an opportunity to perform
seful work, is a low, mean method of
pending your time. The great handl
ap to an increased production or rood '
tuff is the lack of sufficient help in 8
ultivatlng and taking care of crops. I

When the kidneys are neglected or

ire to follow. According to health

to pay more attention to the (
salth of these important organs.
An ideal herbal compound that has
