Hlnes, Ala.—"I must confess", says Mrs. Eula Mae Reid, of this place, "thai Cardui, the woman's tonic, has done me a great deal of good. Before 1 commenced using Cardui, I would spit up everything 1 ate. I had a tired, sleepy feeling all the time, and was irregular. I coula hardly drag around, and would have severe headaches con tinuously. Since taking Cardui, 1 have entirely quit spitting up what 1 eat. Everything seems to digest all right, and 1 have gained 10 pounds in weight." If you are a victim of any of the numer ous ills so common to your sex, it is wrong to suffer. For half a century, Cardui has been re lieving just such ills, as is proven by the thousands of letters, similar to the above, which pour into our office, year by year. Cardui is successful because it is com posed of ingredients which act specifically on the womanly constitution, and helps build the weakened organs back to health and strength. Cardui has helped others, and will help you, too. Get a bottle today. You won't regret it. Your druggist sells it. Write to : Chattanooga Medicine Ce., Ladles' Ad visory Dept., Chattanooga.

BERRY, Manager ——————————— BOLL WEEVIL DAMAGE Some Recent Observations—A Way of Escape and How to Find It. We have just returned from a ten days' stay in Winston and Neshoba counties, where we for merly lived, and where we were conversant with every condition as existed three years ago. At that time the boll weevil was beginning: to make his appear ance. indeed the pest had t>een on a few farms for a year or two before we emigrated to this section Still the people there were prosperous and remained so until this fall. This is all changed now. The weevil has spread gloom over the entire sec tion, and the people with one accord are asking, "what are we to do?" in me laner part ui xi7iw κυν- ; ernment experts told the people what they might expect and how to avoid the calamity that hung over them like a pall, yet they heeded not this timely advice with the result that they are now all to the bad. At- the risk of our reputation for truth and veracity, we are going to tell you just what we saw and learned while in these counties. But before we do so ! we will say that we had a good opportunity to learn of the con ditions there. We talked with hundreds (perhaps more than a thousand) of business men and farmers. We made several trips into the interior, some on foot, some by team and some in an automobile. We went into the fields and saw just what had happened. On the little farm that we left in 1906 there was barely half the cotton made this year that has been made on an average since we left the place in the hands of renters. We visited three good town?, where in years gone by the streets at this season were crowded with cotton wagons, only to find them deserted and the business men lounging under the awning like early summer. We saw fertile fields that had been well cultivated that pro duced less than 100 pounds of seed cotton to the acre. We were told of one field of 19 acres that ordinarily would have made Λ Ο Λ»»Λ fVlof fllfnû/1 ί α wuiv νν νιιν mv* ν ····.. ^ out but a single bale. There are a number of instan ces where two or three small farmers together made but a single bale. We learded of one mercantile company that had filed over two hundred suits against persons owing accounts, and were told that most of them would be un able to meet the debts without great sacrifice, if at all. We talked with one of our boyhood friends, who is now at the head of a large wholesale and retail general mercantile establishment, and he said, "Billy, I tell you this county is just up against it Most of the farmers are more or less in debt and they have made next to nothing to pay with. For the life of me I don't know what is to be done." We were in the store of an other friend who was winding up his business preparatory to going to the delta. This man told us that he had lost about $10,000 this year. Every train we boarded was carrying people to other locali ties· Some were going to the delta, some to Texas and a few to various other places. We talked with one farmer, a gentleman of the highest stand ing, who told us that he had made the best crop he had ever made. (And he had made a small fortune on the farm where he has lived all his life except four years during which he served his county as chancery clerk at a financial sacrifice.). He said, "I have made as milch cottpn in a year before, but I have never msde as much cotton on the same i number of acres- And I mean mean to still cut down my cot ton acreage another year." This man put his mind in his business and followed out the government directions and that of others who knew how to combat the pest, and has come out winner. He is making money while his neighbors are going around with long faces berating the misfor tune that has befallen them. Even the depot agent told me of this man and what he was doing and commented on the changed condition that would have main tained had all other farmers fol lowed the same course this man pursued. And he is not the only man that has done this. We learned of a few others who had made good crops in spite of the boll weevil. What these men have done could have been done by all others. Experts tell us that the boll weevil will continue his march until the whole of the cotton belt is infested, unless by accident something is discovered that will check his career. This section will soon come to the point where Neshoba is today, and unless this people study the situation and take the advise of men who know they will meet the same calamity. There is a way of es cape. Every man must follow this way for himself. Your neighbor cannot help you or re tard you. It is a mere matter of learning to do and then doing. This section is peculiarly well provided with means to learn to do those things necessary to avoid the impending disaster. The railroad company has gone to Texas and brought Mr. Ε. E. Burrows here for this very pur pose. It pays his salary and ex penses and makes it his duty to instruct the farmers in the way to prosperity in spite of the boll weevil. He was brought here because of his knowledge ac quired in the government fight in Texas where he was employed in this work for four years~jçlrior to his coming here. Consult the man who knows rather than the windjammer who only has his opinion to give you. People who know least about the boll weevil are apt to be most ready to tell what they think. If a man tells you a thing, find out his oppor tunity for learning the facts be fore you put much trust in his advice. Then, too, the government has gone to great expense to learn the facts relating to the boll weevil and to find a way to com bat him in his ravages. The information gained has been compiled in a number of pam phlets which can be had for the asking. Write the Department of Agriculture, Washington, D. C., and ask for information con cerning the weevil. Study this literature when you get it and also converse with well informed persons and learn what to do ahd what not to do. Then follow the advice when you get it. Don't let any false hope lead you into the belief that you will es cape without an effort.

Swine raisers are advised against feeding young swine extensively on silage, In a recent bulletin from the Iowa station. It is too fibrous and low in digestible nutrients to prove satisfactory for growing and feath lng swine. The hog has a digestive apparatus suited largely to concentrated feeds. Old sows will eat some silage; how ever, if fed to them it should consti tute only a small portion of their ration. Shallow Garden Cultivating. Continue to cultivate all the vege tables In the garden frequently and shallow. This is especially true of the tomatoes. They cannot be expect ed to continue to bear fruit if this eeeential is not properly taken care of. Frequent cultivation in addition to the prolongation of the bearing period of the tomato tends to lessen the damage due to the blossom end rot of this fruit. Keep this good work going by all means. Giving Hogs a Bath. Kansas Agricultural College says: Few things retard the growth of a hog so much as lice. Years of ex perience have shown that the best remedy for destroying the lice and fieae is dipping in chemical solutions.

Try this experiment : Take several sheets of writing paper with carbons between ; place them on a flat surface and drop a lead pencil, point down, from a height of 18 or 20 inches. Note the clearness of the dot, even on the bottom sheet. Now make a dot by pressing the pencil into the paper, and then examine your carbon copies. The top one will show clear enough but the others will be faint and blurred. Monarch Touch This simple demonstration illustrates the light touch principle of the Monarch Typewriter The action of the Creeping Fulcrum of the Monarch type bar is such that it throws the type face against the paper with a quick tap—not a slow push This means clear impressions on the maximum number of carbon copies. Monarch "Light Touch" is more than a mere talking point. It is a mechanical fact, and is one of the recognized features of the Monarch Typewriter. We are always glad to demonstrate this and other valuable features of the Monarch, and request those inter ested to write us for illustrated, de scriptive literature.
