Little Mabel's Query.
Little Mabel, eight years old, has
company of grown-ups, and had ac-
passed much of her young life In the
quired many of their oldish ways by
Imitation. An elderly lady visited the
aunt with whom Mabel lived. Mabel
had heard the stereotyped expression,
"Well preserved," used concerning old
people. So, after this old lady took
her departure, Mabel sprang a sur
prise upon her elders by remarking:
"Auntie, Isn't Mrs. Brown a well
pickled old lady." Judge.
Thousands Have Kidney
Trouble and Never
Applicants for Insurance Often
Judging from reports from druggist!
who are constantly in direct touch with
the public, there ia one preparation that
has been very successful in overcoming
these conditions. The mild and healing
influence of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Itoot is
6oon realized. It stands the highest for
its remarkable record of success.
An examining physician for one of the
prominent Life Insurance Companies, in
an interview on the subject, made the as
tonishing statement that one reason why
so many applicants for insurance are re
jected is because kidney trouble is so
common to the American people, and the
large majority of those whose applica
tions are declined do not even suspect
that they have the disease.

WIDER HIGHWAYS WIN FAVOR
Originally Engineers Considered 10-
Foot Roadway Adequate Now
Urge 20 Feet.
Former Superintendent of Illinois
Highways S. E. Bradt of DeKalb, 111.,
who has done much to boost the good
roads movement in his state, says en
gineers originally considered a 10-foot
highway adequate to meet the needs of
traffic between populous centers.
Then they learned the folly of thia
contention and boosted the width. It
was finally made lu feet. Koads are
being built 18 feet in width and now
come prominent engineers advocating
a 20-foot highway.
The shoulder maintenance is a prom
inent factor entering into this prob
lem. The upkeep of a shoulder usual
ly exceeds the original cost of the ex
tra two feet of pavement, it has been
learned by experience. For this reason
highway experts are going on record
advocating the wider pavement for
trunk line highways. The upkeep of
shoulders is very high, especially
where there is heavy truck traffic.
PAVED ROADS AND DAIRYING
More Improved Highways Are
Constructed Milk Routes Are
Paved roads and dairying go hand
in hand. As more improved roads are
constructed, milk routes are extended
and the farmer farther from the city
is prodvided with a market for his
milk. Over unimproved routes re
quiring wagon delivery, the longest
route possible is only approximately
15 miles while over paved highways,
traveled by motortrucks, routes cov
ering as high as 40 miles are estab
lished. Large areas of prospective
dairy country are waiting only the
construction of more hard surfaced
roads. When these are built, many
more farmers, now cut off from their
market, will receive the benefit of the
economical and rapid transportation
made possible by the motortruck and
the paved highway.

STERILE SPIKELETS FOUND IN OATS

cause of Condition Too Much
Moisture Is Cause.
The yield of oats is sometimes much
reduced because of the number of
sterile spikelets in the heads, and be
cause of the frequent occurrence of
this condition the United States De
partment of Agriculture conducted a
number of experiments to find the
cause and, possibly, a remedy. The
results are given in Department Bul
letin 1053, Sterility of Oats, a profes
sional paper by Charlotte Elliott.
It was at first thought that the
dumber of sterile spikelets had some
relation to the amount of halo blight
In the field, but the experiments did
not bear out the belief: The amount
of sterility seems to vary with differ
ent varieties during the same season
under similar conditions. Too much
moisture about the developing heads
is believed to be the cause, due to
rains falling about the time the oats
sheaths are ready to open. The author
suggests that if further experiments
show that year after year certain va
rieties suffer more from sterility than
