A devoted mother seems to listen to every call of duty excepting1 the su preme one that tells her to guard her health, and before she realizes it some derangement of the female organs has manifested itself, and nervousness and irritability take the place of happi ness and amiability. Mrs. Ph.Hoffm an Tired, nervous and irritable, the mother is unfit to care for her chil dren, and her condition ruins the child’s disposition and reacts upon herself. The mother should not be blamed, as fthe no doubt is suffering1 with back ache, headache, bearing-down pains or displacement, making life a burden. Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com pound is the unfailing cure for this condition. It strengthens the female organs and permanently cures all dis placements and irregularities. Such testimony as the following should convince women of its value: Dear Mrs. Piukham: “ I want to tell you how much good Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound has done me. I suffered for eight years with ovarian troubles. I was nervous, tired and ir ritable, and it did not seem as though I could stand it any longer, as I had five children to care for. Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound was recommended and it has en tirely cured me. I cannot thank you enough for your letter of advice and for what Lydia TS. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has done for me.—Mrs. Ph. Hoffman, 100 Himrod Street, Brooklyn, N. Y.” Mrs. Pink ham advises sick women free. Address, Lynn, Mass. HAVE YOU COWS?

Tbr Farmer’* Intercut lu the Expe riment Station la Greater Than Man)- of Them Imnglne. The real purpose of the experiment farm and its relation to the farmers of the state do not seem to be clearly un derstood. There seems to be in the public mind a confusion of the experi ment farm with a model farm. The two are by no means the same; but that no distinction is made is evident from the expressions you hear in a crowd going through an experiment farm: “That corn is not as good as mine,’’ says one, or “John, you can beat that cotton.” Such comparisons show that the speakers think the crops grown at the experiment farm are intended as models for the farmers of the state. This Is a mistake. What then is the purpose of the experiment farm? It is to test the value and adaptabilities of new crops or new varieties that have been originated in other sections or are recommended by individtials to develop useful crops flrom nfitive weeds or grasses, to test methods of culture and fertilization, and to submit the results to the farmers of the state in a form that will be practically useful. It is clear that since the greater part of its work is really experiment, that there must be many failures—more fail ures than successes. The fact is that the advantage of the experiment sta tion is just this: To save the individual farmer the time and expense of making these experiments and necessary fail ures himself. It is cheaper to appropri ate money to the purpose and let them be made once for all than for each of us to do this work for himself. It is unreasonable to expect all the crops we find on the experiment farm to be successful and useful as models for our farming. What we have a right to ex pect is a clear statement of the meth ods, etc., which have been tested, and the results of the test, so that we may avoid those that are not good and make use of those that are To illusrate: The may pop is perfect ly familiar to us all, as a weed, and most of us have enjoyed sucking the seed while we were boys. It is quite possible that from this weed may be developed a fruit that would be a source of pleasure and profit. On the other hand, it is possible that an attempt to develop such a fruit would only end in failure. Certainly the average farm er has no time or money to spend on its development. Right here comes in the experiment station. Through it we all combine to make the test. The cost to each of us is very small, and if the attempt is successful we shall all share the benefit. Or again, our woods are full of wild legumes. Some of these with proper handling may prove equal in feeding value to clover and alfalfa and, being native to our soil, will be easier to grow- But no individual has the time and money necessary to make the test, with the possibility of failure that has always to be reckoned with. And so we should look to our experiment sta tions to do this for us. Their service in regard to testing new varieties and methods of cultivation and so forth is similar. And the experiment farms have done much good in these direc tions. Let us judge them by their real purpose, and we shall not only be more just to them, but we shall be in a bet ter position to get good from them. On the other hand, the experiment stations are sometimes at fault in esti mating their obligations to the farm ers, by whose will and for whose ad vantage they have their existence, as secondary to their obligation to pure science and scientific men- That they can and ought to make contribution to science is» net to be denied. But the lines of invetsigation that they pursue and the form in which the results of their investigations aie published should be determined by the needs of the farmers in their section. The bul letin issued should be written in a popular and interesting style, and should be eminently practical in their treatment of the subject. Furthermore, they should not consist generally in statistical tables, etc., which are hard reading. They should ste'e and inter pret results in the most simple, clear and popular style possible. In order to do this the men engaged in this work should come frequently and intimately in touch with the people for whom they work and understand the manner of thought and the problems that meet them. When the people expect only what Is legitimate from the station, and the sta tion realizes its relation to the people, we may expect the best iesults for ag riculture—B. M. Drake, in Southern Cultivator. DOING IN THE GARDEN. Don’t Plant a Garden and Then Allow the Weed* to Choke Down All Growth. Many farmers work hard all summer and raise fine crops and have fine gar dens, but as soon as crops are laid by they stop all manner of work. In a short time all vegetables are overgrown with grass and weeds and brush for want of attention. I know farmers now (and unfortunately their narao Is iegion), who have from thin sort of neglect lost all their vegetables, and now their wives are put to it to find something to cook Now this ought not to be so. Work while you work; play while you play, is the way to be cheerful, happy and gay, but too much of it will put you on short rations. No one likes to see the young and old folks enjoy themselves more than I, but there should be moderation in all things. Have hours to work and hours to play. Now begin to cultivate yoor turnips. Those tomato vines that hawe fallen down and died with bushels of neg lected tomatoes on them, can be cut ofT, cultivated, and maimed suckers will put up from the roots. These will tear a crop of late tomatoes. Some will get ripe before frost. Then take all green ones that are grown or near ly so wrap them in paper and lay them on a shelf. They will ripen. In this way I have had ripe tomatoes on Christmas day. I have treated mine so two weeks ago, or a part of them, at least. They are now blooming. Work out your celery and begin to earth slowly. Work your parsnips and' carrots and beets. Look after your Irish potatoes. If they are on the ground take up and put them in the house till cold weather, then keep them away for the winter./ Look after your Gmail fruit vines or bushes and flowers. Your cows should be fed now with plenty of succulent foodi and some grain, too, or they will lose their flow of milk. That pork will be higher, goes with out saying, so push your hogs, vary ing their food, using corn, peas and sweet potatoes alternately. With plenty of fine fruit, vegetables —peas, beans, green corn1—both fresh, canned and dried; poultry, eggs, pork and beef, with fresh and salt fish, well cooked and prepared, what more could the president of the United States or any of the crowned heads of the world ask—except the dower empress, who perhaps would like a few rats and some birds’ nests for dessert? No reason why the farmers who iaise everything should not be the best fed people on earth; so don’t neglect your opportunities.—J. H. Parker, in Progressive Farmer. The Cost of Ijfnorunee. “Ignorance and the lack of informa tion has cost the southern farmer many dollars, and in many ways. First, be cause we have not had the practical, chemical knowledge of our soils. We have spent millions of dollars in sup plying our land with fertilizing mate rial that they were not deficient in. For instance, some of ouf lands are well supplied with nitrogen or am monia, especially after certain crops have been grown the previous year. Others contain potash or lime, or acid phosphate. Still, as a rule, the farmer will buy a complete fertilizer for his crop, when only certain material is needed, thus spending large sums of money for material with which his soils are already supplied “We have wasted time and money in poor preparation of soils for our crops, and in the improper cultivation of same. “The lack of knowledge in judging live stock and the proper care of same has also been expensive- to the south ern farmer. “Another thing that has cost the farmers sums of money is the habit we have of going from home to buy our mules, hay, corn, meat And other things we couldl so easily raise at home; fcr instance, Edgecombe county raised last year about 35,000 bales oi cotton that sold for about one million dollars, and she spent the same year for mules, meat, hay, corn anfi fertiliz ers about three-fifths of this whole amount, or $600,000. Not only did we pay out this large amount Tor some thing we could1 have raised, at home, but the over-production of cotton cost us nearly an amount equal to this, the difference in price we could have got ten had the cotton crop been reduced sufficiently to have enabled vs to raise these things at home.—E.

Williams’ Pink Pllis Cured Him. “It seems like a miracle that Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills should have cured my neuralgia,’’said Mr. Porter. “They we certainly a marvelous medicine and I am always glad to recommend them. “For two years,” he continued, “I had suffered almost unendurable pains in my head. They would start over my eyes and shoot upward most frequently, but they often spread over my face, and at times every part of my head and face would be full of agony. Sometimes the pains were so intense that I actually feared they would drive me mad. “ My eyes ached constantly and there was always a burning sensation over my forehead, but the other pains varied, sometimes they were acute, and again they were dull and lingering. I could not sleep. My temper was irritable and I got no pleasure out of life. “ I tried remedy after remedy, but finding no help in any of them, I be came a despairing man. Even when I began to take Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills I had no great hope of a cure. “ That was in December of 1903. To my surprise, a change in my condition took place right away. The pains grew less intense and the acute attacks were further apart, as I kept on using Dr. Wil liams’ Pink Pills. The improvement be gan with the first box, and when I had used six boxes I stopped. My cure was complete and has lasted ever since.” Mr. Charles H. Porter lives at Ray mond, N. H. He is one of many grateful people who have found that Dr. William^’ Pink Pills will cure diseases of the nerves that have stubbornly resisted every other remedy tried.
