.Bladder troubles almost always result
from a derangement of the kidneys and

treatment of the kidneys. If you are feel

taking Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root, the
great Kidney, liver and bladder remedy.
It corrects inability to hold urine and
scalding pain in pasting it, and over
comes that unpleasant necessity of being
compelled to go often through the day,
and to get up many times during the
night. The mild and the extraordinary
effect of Swamp-Root Is soon realized.
It stands the highest for its wonderful .
cures of the most distressing cases.
Swamp-Root is pleasant to take and is

To be known as a careful busi

impress this upon your mind, and
add another maxim which I pray
you heed and be wise. It is this:
"Land constitutes the real bnsis of
all values." Corporations may fail,
houses may burn, bonds may prove
worthless, and "the fool and his
money soon part," but if you own
as much as 200 acres of land in
Texas your wife can hold that for
a HOUC against the world.

THE TW1CE-A-WEEK HERALD,
I will give you a brief white-up of my experience in the Panhan
dle for the past 16 years. I moved to Hardeman county sixteen years
ago last June, had nothing but a wagon and pony team, wife and baby.
I held my own very well for seven years, trying to raise wheat and oats
alone, like all the rest of the people in that part, by the way many of
the readers of the Herald will doubtless remember those trying times,
before we began to diversify them. Every farm, so to speak, was a
separate experiment station, in infancy. After awhile we began to
raise different crops, such as Kaffir corn, milo maize, sorghum, cotton,
vegetables, hogs and all the cattle we could, then we began to build up
