Mrs. McCnmber Avoided a Serious
Operation by Taking Lydia E.
Pinkham’s Vegetable Com
pound in Time
Georgetown, 111. —“After my first
baby was born I suffered so with my
left side that I could
not walk across the
floor unless I was all
humped over, hold
ing to my side. I doc
tored with several
doctors but found no
relief and they said
I would have to have
an operation. My
mother insisted on
my taking Lydia E.
ble Compound and 1
Boon found relief. Now I can do all my
own work and it is the Vegetable Com
pound that has saved me from an opera
tion. I cannot praise your medicine too
highly and I tell all of my friends and
neighbors what the Compound did for
me.” —Mrs. Margaret McCumber,
27 S. Frazier St., Georgetown, Illinois.
Mrs. McCumber is one of the unnum
bered thousands of housewives who
struggle to keep about their daily tasks,
while suffering from ailments peculiar
to women with backache, siaeaches,
headaches, bearing-down pains and ner
vousness,—and if every such woman
should profit by her experience and give
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound a trial they would get well.

By ROBERT FULLER
CHICAGO, Nov. 15.—The newest thing in the
farm bureau movement is a woman’s department which
Jhall, just as nearly as possible, represent the great
and important congregation of farm women in the |
President Howard of the American Farm Bu
reau Federation, has appointed a committee of four
women to work out the details of the women’s farm
bureau department and they will no doubt present an
outline of a plan shortly.
The committee consists of Mrs. Vera Busick
Schuttler, Missouri; Mrs. John C. Ketcham, Michigan;
Mrs. Izetta Brown, West Virginia, and Mrs. A. E.
Brigden, New York.
The personnel of the committee was chosen by
President Howard from a long list of names of women
already well identified with farm bureau or farm
organization work. Mrs. Brigden is known through
out New York for her active labor in developing the
home bureau. She is president of the Cortland county
home bureau and president of the state federation of
Mrs. Vera B. §chuttler, chairman of the com
mittee, has played an important part in the organiza
tion and development of the farm bureau in Missouri.
She has served as a member of the executive commit
tee of the St. Francois County Farm Bureau, a mem
ber of the executive committee of the Missouri Farm
Bureau Federation, member of the committee on re
lations to the College of Agriculture and Secretary of
the Farm Bureau Roads Convention.
Mrs. Izetta Brown is the owner and manager of
a dairy of pure bred Holsteins and Jerseys in West
Virginia. In addition to her dairy she operates two
general farms. Mrs. Brown has had an active part in
Mrs. John C. Ketcham also brings to the com
mittee a wealth of experience. She was for years
closely associated with her husband in his work as
Master of the Michigan State Grange. For the first
two years she was a member of the executive commit
tee of Michigan Farm Bureau Federation. At pres
ent Mrs. Ketcham holds a number of important offices.
A woman with the title of Assistant Secretary
will head the new department. The committee will
also develop a program of work for women members
of the farm bureau. This program of work will prob
ably be largely concerned with the improvement of
the social side of farm life. It will have to do with
the establishment of community centers, the rural
church, boys’ and girls’ clubs, consolidated schools, etc.
A NEW IDEA
Water Valley has everything need
ed to grow truck crops. Truck crops
mean prosperity and good farms.
Mr. Schwietert General Development
Agent of the Illinois Central Railroad
sent his assistants, Mr. Wade and Mr.
Coleman to Water Valley to find if
conditions were good for this indus
try. Their opinions will be of inter
est to every farmer of this section—
for they mean better farms—larger
yields—more money and a richer,
The soil is better adapted naturally
to truck growing than in many es
tablished trucking sections. The
crops may reach the market at a good
time to receive good prices. Many
truck crops will do well in this locali
ty. Water Valley, on a direct route
to Chicago, receives the marketing
sendee of the I. C. noted for its fast
trains bearing fruits and vegetables
in a hurry to people who want them.
These are some of the things told by
Mr. Schietert’s men.
Mr. Schwietert does not boost
where boosting is not due. When he
sends out men he does it carefully
and sends men who can see clearly.
These men say “Go ahead.” They
know trucking and they know market
ing and when they say “Grow Truck,”
it is worth some thought and some
The I. C. will help—Our depart
ment will come into the field and show
how to plant, how tto fertilize and
how to pack, and we will help in ev
ery way possible to make trucking
“the big way to prosperity” in Water
Valley. This is the thought these
They come back next Monday to
present the matter and to answer
questions to all who are interested.
Come, hear and talk it over. This is
bigger than any one man or group.
It is big enough for the help and sup
port of every man on a farm, or in a
store, behind a plow or a bank win
dow. It is an opportune time.” Let’s
Grow Truck.’ ’ .

TO DOUBLE-TRACK BRIDGE
Will Give Illinois Central Two Tracks
From Chicago to Memphis
MEMPHIS, Nov. 15.—Permission
has been granted by the secretary of
war for double tracking the Illinois
Central railroad bridge spanning the
Ohio River at Cairo, 111., according to
information in offices of the railroad
here. The work which under the
permit must be undertaken within a
year, will cost $8,482,000 in the es-,
timate of engineers. Approaches to
the bridge on the Kentucky and Illi-|
nois side already are double-tracked.
When the contemplated woik is com
pleted the Illinois Central railroad
will have a double track from Chicago
to Memphis with no interruption.
nWHICH ONE IS THE BIGGEST? I

Settee player should engage in ‘■barnstorming games after the close
ol the series, he established an issue as to which was the biggest in
baseball, he or Judge Kenesaw W Landis, of Chicago, Chief Com
missioner of baseball. Landis warned Ruth not to play Ruth said it
was an unfair ruling and played Fans the land over are wondering)
if the “King of Swat” has met his Waterloo.
