The particular stretch of road was probably worse than any other tn all France, If such a thing were possi ble, and the weary and footsore com pany was of one mind concerning It. Private Ited Long, at one of the In frequent rests, turned disgustedly to his buddy and asked : "Say, Jack, what's that road that's paved with good iutentlon8?" "Road to hell," replied the other.

Millions for a New Stomach One of the greatest American million airee said to his physician, "A million dollars, Doctor, spot cash and no grum bling, for a mow stomach," and then the sick man groaned and turned away. All his wealth eould not make him happy or contented, for happiness large ly depends npon digestion. Without health where doee happineee come in? After all the stomach plays a great part in everyday life. Without a healthy stomach and good digestion our blood is thin, watery and poor, our heart action is weak, onr liver dees not do its duty, and man is miserable and unhappy. Prevent disease by putting the house in order and strengtheuing the system against the germs of disease. Dr. Pierce, of tho Invalids ' Hotel and Surgical Institute, at Buffalo, N.

U, Salt Laka City, No. 4 S- 1 S 2 S / COWERS THRIVE OH SANDYLORMS Legume Can Be Grown Success fully on Variety of Soils Un der Adverse Conditions. BEST AS LEGUMINO US CROP It Hat Greatest Value In Southern States, Gradually Lessening North ward — Seeds Are Commonly Ueed for Human Food. While cowpeas do best on sandy roams, they succeed on practically all types of well-drained soli, according to specialists of tho bureau of plant In dustry of the United States Depart ment of Agriculture. No other legume can be grown so successfully and on such a variety of soils under adverse conditions as the cowpeas. A very rich soli Is not conducive to the best results with the crop. Good corn land Is considered particularly favorable. Warm Weather Crop. The cowpea Is a warm weather crop. It has the greatest value In the southern states, gnnlually lessening northward. It is grown, however, In die southern parts of Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, and New Jersey, and in parts of Michigan. In general, the cowpea Is adapted to about the same climatic conditions as corn. It requires some what more heat, however. It will stand a considerable degree of drought, but under very dry conditions will produce only a moderate quantity of hay and a very small number of seeds, If any. In the southern states the cowpea Is the best known and most extensively grown leguminous crop. It Is grown mainly for forage and to Improve the soil. The seeds, in addition, are rath er commonly used for human food. As i catch crop and for hay or seed pro duction cowpeas are especially valu able In almost any system of rotation. In many sections of Missouri, Arkan sas and Tennessee a rotation of wheat »r oats and cowpeas has given good esults. On farms where live stock is kept the following rotation Is very lormlar: First year, cotton: second In m® Cowpea Field in Blossoni. year, corn, with cowpeas at the last cultivation ; third year, winter oats or wheat, with a catch crop of cowpeas for hay or seed after the grain has been removed. Worked In Rotation. In sections devoted to growing to bacco a seven-year rotation of tobacco, wheat, two years of grass, corn with crimson clover as a cover crop, cow peas, and red clover, has been recom mended by a state experimental sta tion. A good rotation In the corn belt on land where com and wheat or oats are regularly grown consists of com, soy beans, wheat, and clover, with cowpeas for hay when clover falls. Cowpeas are to be recommended also as a crop to precede alfalfa. Farmers' Bulletin 1148, Cowpeas : Culture anil Varieties, now issued by the United States Department of Agriculture, contnins much valuable Information on the growing of cow pens. Copies may be had upon request of the department at Washington, D. C. GROWERS OF SORGHUM SEED List Published by Kansas Agricultural Station of Great Advantage to Farmers. A list of growers of pure sorglium seed has been issued this yenr by the Knnsns State Agricultural Experiment station at Manhattan, supplementing similar lists which have been published In the past on wheat, corn and other principal cereal crops. The list Is made from field Inspection and enables farmers to tell the exact grade of sorghum or percentage of mixture with other varieties which Is to he obtained from any grower. This service has been of greet advantage to the farmers of the state. TREATMENT FOR BULLS' FEET Many Useless Cripples Could Be Avoided by Giving Some Atten tion to Underpinning. Unfortunately many good bulls be come useless cripples through neglect of their feet. Few things nre more painful than to see a good bull limp ing along on his heels, with long, up turned hoofs. No amount of attention can restore the sprightly step and erect cnrrlage that are characteristic of a vigorous bull, when once his feet have been seriously neglected. Preven tion Is always better than to venture the risks of a cure. DISEASE-FREE SEED CORN TESTS BETTER Important Results Obtained by Plant Specialists. Planted Thickly in Hill or Drill Row, Plant la More Sueceptlble to Ali mente Than When Abundanca of Space Warn Given It. Seed corn that gave 100 per cent germination but showed infection by harmful organisms was matched against corn that showed no Infection In a series of tests carried out by plant specialists of the United States Department of Agriculture In co-op eration with the Indiana experiment station. The disease-free seed gave an increased yield of 10 to 30 per cent above Its competitor. Further results of the test seemed to prove that when corn was planted too thickly In hill or drill row It was more susceptible to disease than when better space wns given It. In a sim ilar test rt Ri'<nm!ncton. III., the dis --r~ Prize Sample of Seed Com. ease-free seed gave an increase of 23 per cent over the other corn, which was selected for high germination only. At Hoopeston, 111., the differ ence, measured In tons, ranged from 0.01 to 1.5 tons In favor of the seed selected both for high germination and freedom from disease. The selection was based on the ab sence of discoloration in the kernels and cobs as Indicating soundness. Dis ease Is indicated by brown discolora tion at the butts of the ears and at the kernel tips and by decay in the cobs. CONDIMENTS ARE INJURIOUS Effects on Egg-Producing Organs Are Temporary and Undermine Health of Fowls. The use of condiments and tonic* 's to be deprecated rather than en couraged, though there are times with ailing fowls when a tonic will ton* ip the system. Condiments undoubt edly stimulate the egg-producing or zans, but It is a temporary effect and the reaction which sets In not only Is oegntlve but tends to undermine the physical health of the bird. It Is well to remember that In the egg-laying contests tonics and condiments have no place in the feeding rations, and that for the most part high record* are attained without their use. So called stimulants find their widest us« by the novice In poultry farming; the experienced breeder generally let* them alone.

BIG SHRINKAGE IN POTATOES Average Is Three Per Cent or 1,20C Pounds Per Carload When Shipped in Bulk. "Shrinkage" Ib bulk carloads of po tatoes averages three per cent, ac cording to a survey of marketing con ditions made by the United States De partment of Agriculture. This amounts to 1.200 pounds per carload. The "shrinkage" Is less where potatoes are sacked, as this reduces pilfering and rough handling to the minimum.

If the king did aU he might do with out exceeding his royal p r ero ga tive the nation would be startled. He can veto a bill passed In both houses; tie can dissolve and summon parliaments he can select or dismiss his ministers; he can declare war; he can make treaties and create peers; be can ap point bishops, governors and jud ge« and all "on his own." He could cede the duchy of Cornwall to a foreign power, disband the army.. and navy, and sell the dneadnaughts and naval stores. He could give every govern ment official, from the highest to the lowest, the "push," could pardon all criminals, and could stop the. whole machinery of government. But there is an unwritten law of common sense, fortified by long usage, which makes It unthinkable the* the king should de these things; and in the last resort, which is never likely to occur, the king, being a constitutional monarch, reigns by the win of the people, and could be deposed by act of parliament. —Montreal Herald.
