We believe it will help you. All Druggists The United States and Ger many are now at war. Men and more men will be needed and it's going to take lots of money and food to maintain the army and country. Prices of food are now high, but these prices are very likely to be considered low when the top notch is reached. Infact, if nation after nation continues to become involved, it will not be a question of price at all but of finding something to subsist upon. The millions of men called and to be called from productive to destructive enterprises nec- essarially makes food and feed scarce and high. And whether the war lasts a month or five years this scarcity will last at least until the crops of 1918 be gin to reach the markets and longer if the war goes on. It is now up to the South to feed her own people. Before our country went to war, the matter of what to plant was a question of profit. It now be comes one of necessity live at home or. starve. Cotton prices may look attractive but we can not eat cotton. What 'would it profit us if every pocket were fill ed to overflowing; with hundred dollar bills and we were out of food and there was none to buy? Would we not starve just as soon as if our pockets were empty? -Besides cotton is not high when compared with food. A pound of cotton will not buy a pound of meat today. When cotton was seven cents a pound a bale would buy more corn than it will now, it would buy more flour, more clothes and more of everything that we must have to live and to live . we must and will but if our people don't want to get mighty hungry they had better grow a bumber crop of something to eat. v..

State Examiner of Public Ac counts of Alabama, and one-time editor of one of the South's greatest newspapers The Bir mingham Are-Herald. Writing to a personal friend in Atlanta, Mr. Evans.says: "Birminghan, Ala. ' By the way, you will hardly know me when we meet again because I am gettinw well and strong again. As I told you while in Atlanta last month, I have been suffering a long time with gastritis, as the doctors call it really a disordered stomach with consequent constipation, pains in the shoulders, headache, belching, heartburn, loss of ap petite, loss of sleep and fainting spells. For weeks I could not sleep on my back. One week ago, upon recom mendation of friends, who had tried the medicine, I purchased one bottle of Tanlac and began taking it. Since my second dose I haye suffered none of these troubles to which I refer, and really believe I am going to get perfectly well and strong again. Won't that be wonderful at my age; well, certain it is that Tanlac is a wonderful medicine, and you know that I am not giv en to 'puffing' mere experiments and am rather orthodox as to materia medica. I shall continue the treat ment with perfect confidence in the final results (Signed) "FRANK EVANS." Commenting on this splendid indorsement of Tanlac, G. F.

L. Word, who is one of thejmost progressive young farmers we have in the Okojona territory. As Mr. Word kept accurate data on the handling of these hogs during the feeding period, the figures make interesting reading. Un February 24th, the day feed ing was started, the fourteen pigs weighed 1,792 pounds and were worth, on the local market of that date, nine cents making the bunch worth $161.28. After feeding for six weeks the hogs were sold on the local market for 13J cents a pound. In the feeding perod they had gained 1,013 pounds, making a total weight of 2,805 pounds and bringing a check for $378.67. They had been fed 62J bushels of corn, 200 pounds of cotton seed meal and 250 pounds of shorts which at market prices cost $101, leaving the neat little profit , of $116.39 on the feeding period. This shows that, after paying for the cotton seed meal and shorts, Mr. Word sold his corn to the pigs at $3.20 a bushel.

The sav iug to the public In passenger fares through this difference was $,114,000, 000 and in freight rates $1,340,000,000. Universal railroad bankruptcy under this reduction In rates and increased cost of operation, he said, was avoided only by heavy expenditures to obtain Increased efficiency in train movement, making it possible to haul more tons of freight per locomotive. This bad re duced the average cost of Hauling a ton of freight, but the decline in the average freight rate had reduced the net revenue of the roads from each ton hauled. If the operating costs of the railroads, Including the prices of coal. labor and material, continue' to ad vance at the present rate a lot of rail roads will be in the hands of receivers by 1918 unless some relief is afforded, Mr. Kruttschnitt told rtie committee. "Owing to the rise of commodity prices," he said, "the purchasing power of the dollar has fallen 55 per cent and the railroads are in the position of be ing compelled by law to accept pay ment for their service to the public In currency worth 45 cents on the dollar. Public's Chief Intsrsst. "The public's greatest interest is In adequate transportation facilities and not so much In low rates. As to most commodities freight rates form a very small proportion- of their cost , Ex cluding low grade commodities, the percentage of the freight rate to the cost is so slight as to offer no Justifica tion for any substantial Increase In prices to the consumer. It may be stated with little fear of contradiction that the consumer seldom, if ever, profits from a lowering of freight rates. 'Extortionate charges are a thing of the past, snd under the attempt to cut rates to their lowest possible figure the Interest of the whole public in tke character and standard of transporta tion Is subordinated to the Interest ef that part of the public only that profits by lower rates that is to say, the ship pers and their agents and not the gen eral public, the ultimate consumer."
