MOST WONDERFUL CATTLE IN THE W0RLD : I Excellent Type of Dutch Belted Cow. (Ry g. a. Ginns.) These cattle originated in Holland, several hundred years ago, but were almost exterminated during the great Holland wars. The few that were left fell' into the possession of the nobility and they have controlled them ever since. They have kept the breed pure and are not inclined to part with them. Fifty years ago, Barn urn, the show man, induced the Holland nobility to Jet him bring a few to this country for show purposes. He showed them under 'the tent for awhile and then placed them on his farm along ihe Hudson river, in Orange county, New York.' Motley calls them "the most won derful cattle in the world," and Mr. 11. G. Hengerwell, head inspector of the Holstein herd book of North Hol land, declares "They stand equal to the best cattle in our country for milking, breeding or fattening. Dutch belted cattle are now to be found In nearly every state of th6 Union and many have been imported to Canada, Mexico and Cuba. In color they are black with a band of pure white around the body. They also have white fore feet, white hind feet and legs up to the gambrels and a white switch, but I have never known one to have white at all these points. They are very docile and intelli gent. They are large, hearty, with good constitutions. The cows weigh between 1,000 and 1,250 pounds and some bulls have exceeded a ton In weight. , They are wonderfully persistent milkers. The famous cow. Queen, dropped her first calf when 22 months of age and was never dry afterwards although she dropped a calf yearly for 14 years. She gave 70 pounds of milk a day for seven consecutive days on grass alone when fresh. DR. R. A. ARMiSTEAD'S FAMOUS AGUE TONiC SHOULD BE IN EVERY HOME. SpottsTille, Kt Sept. 9th. 1898.

USE OF SWEET CLOVER Plant Is of Great Value in Re ' Storing Worn-0ui Soils. ' Badly Run-Oown and Abandoned Cot vton Plantations Have Been Re stored to Fertility and Profit by Its Use as Mulch. (By R. G. WKATHERSTONE.) !; Sweet clover is not a noxious weed. It is" of unquestioned value in restora tion of worn and eroded soils, and it has many other important uses. - It grows luxuriantly in roadside ditches, in the cuts of railroads and generally in situations similar to these erosions and its ability to withstand these ad verse conditions and often even to prosper there, indicating its availabil - Ity as a means "of restoration of such waste places. '? Sweet clover has a very wide dis tribution throughout the world, being found on each of the continents and tn many of the islands. The department of agriculture for South Australia reports that this plant has transformed the barren, sandy waste of King island into one of the most profitable dairy regions of Australia. The plant is found growing in most of the United States as a wayside weed, and in large areas in Mississip pi, Alabama, Kentucky, Iowa, Colo rado, Nevada, California and OMo. Hadly run down and abandoned cot ton plantations in Mississippi and Alabama have been restored to fer tility and profit by the use of sweet Clover as a mulch and green manure. 1 It is being used in a similar way in the hills of northern Kentucky in re storing badly eroded tobacco laijds and ns a sou ameliorant in Iowa. In the far west It grows in profusion on 1he banks of irrigation ditches and in deserts where the soil is so alkaline that other plants will not thrive. Throughout the world the large areas of sweet clover are usually to be found on soils very calcerous, showing the same fondness for lime that is com mon to alfalfa. While the plant shows wheat in midwinter when the ground is honeycombed, with oats In the spring or on a well prepared seed bed in May. In these latter cases the seed should be lightly covered. It may also be seeded during August, as is frequently done with alfalfa. The seed usually germinates very poorly, owing to the presence of a large number of hard seeds. For this reason from 20. to 30 pounds of seed should be sown per acre. Even more of the unhulled seed can be used to advantage. As a soil ameliorant sweet clover gives promise of great benefit to farmers. When Used in this connec tion on areas deficient in lime, this element should be liberally supplied- THE BEST TREATMENT FOR ITCHING SCALPS, DANDRUFF AND FALLING HAIR To allay Itching and irritation of the scalp, prevent dry, thin and falling hair, remove crusts, scales and dan druff, and promote the growth and beauty of the hair, the following spe cial treatment is most effective, agree able and economical. On retiring, comb the hair out straight all around, then begin at the side and make a parting, gently rubbing Cuticura Oint ment into the parting with a bit of soft flannel held over the end of the finger. Anoint additional partings about half an, inch apart until the whole scalp has been treated, the pur pose being to get the Cuticura Oint ment on the scalp skin rather than on the hair. It Is well to place a light covering over thehalr to protect the pillow from possible stain.' The next morning, shampoo with Cuticura Soap and hot water. Shampoos alone may be used as often as agreeable, but once or, twice a month is generally sufficient for this special treatment for women's hair. Cuticura Soap and Ointment sold throughout the world.

Physicians Recommend Castoria rASTOEIA has met Trrith prononnced favor on the part of physicians, pharma- centical societies and medical authorities. It is used by physicians with results most gratifying. The extended use of Castoria is unquestionably the result of three facts: tint The indisputable evidence that it is harmless: Secomt That it not only allays stomach pains and quiets the nerves, but assimi lates the food : Third It is an agreeable and perfect substitute for Castor OiL It is absolutely safe. It does not contain any Opium, Morphine, or other narcotic and doe3 not stupefy. It is unlike Soothing Syrups, Bateman's Drops, Godfrey'3 Cordial, etc. This is a good deal for a Medical Journal to say. Our duty, how ever, is to expose danger and record the means of advancing health. The day for poisoning innocent children through greed or ignorance ought to end. To our knowledge, Castoria is a remedy which produces composure and health, by regulating the system not by stupefying itand our readers are entitled to the information.

IL Taft, of Brooklyn, N. Y., says: "I have used your Castoria and 'ound it an excellent remedy in my household and private practice for many years. The formula Is excellent." Dr. R. J.

An appliction of manure or straw will aid the young clover in getting started and hasten the work of res toration. It Is probably best to delay the sowing of other grass seeds for two or more years after the sweet clover has been seeded. The area's should not be pastured, but the sweet clover allowed to fall down and form a surface mulch. On badly eroded areas, sweet clover and the yellow locust form an- excellent combination If the land is not leveled before seed ing the young trese should be set in the bottom of the ditches. Probably the best plan to get sweet clover Btarted on eroded or very thin soils is to transplant one-year-old plants iq the spring. This is neither as slow nor as laborious as it might seem. One plant every four 6r five feet is suffi cient. It possesses the merit of being almost invariably successful. Plants are usually available in Wayside sweet clover patches. Well, Why Not?

STORING THE SWEET POTATO Restoration Completed Ten years before this picture was taken it was as bad as eroded clay field shown in illustration it la now a profitable blue grata pasture, with about one third of the grass in sweet clover. wide soil adaptation, its most luxuri ant growth is invariably associated with lime. ' The nitrogen-fixing bac teria of alfalfa and sweet clover are very similar; those ' of one plant readily adapting themselves to the other. This makes sweet clover plots of. great value as a source of soil In oculation for alfalfa. Fields which have been in sweet clover for a few years can usually be seeded to alfalfa easily and successfully. Sweet, clover Itself needs lnoculai 'on and whej it Is being introduced into new situations the soil should be Inoculated, Failure to do this Is a probable cause of many failures. 6eid can be Bowed broadcast on Should Be Left in Field Until Moist ure Has Fully Evaporated Then Hill Up for Winter. There are several different' meth ods for storing and keeping sweet potatoes which have proven successful. i-'otatoes, wnen first dug, have a large amount of molstur.in thorn, which - must evaporate. when the weather is good, they should be left out in the field until this evaporation is complete; otherwise, the moisture and the intense heat, generated by their drying in a hill, will cause rot. When this is not possible, they should be piled loosely in a dry house torfa week or two. They may then be hilled up for the winter. Select a dry place and pile up dirt about six or eight Inches, then cover over with vines or dry leaves. Pile the potatoes on this foundation until the pile is five or six feet across. Cover with dry straw and lay boards over the pile much in the manner of shingling, leaving a small hole of five or six Inches in the top. Be sure that your covering will shed all the water; then cover with earth. The top mut be left open so that the evaporation of the potato will not cause rot, but must be fixed so that no water can enter the pile. Loveland, Ky. "When I first wrote you, I was feeling 60 miserable, that life wasn't worth living." So writes, in a recent letter, Mrs. Anna Bowling, of this place. I was in bad shape, my left side hurt so, at times, I could hardly bear it, and I could not lio on that side at night, at all. I also had another serious symptom of womanly trouble. I finally decided to give Cardui, the woman's tonic, a trial, so I purchased a bottle, and by the time I had taken it, I felt better in every way, so I got another bottle, and it straightened me out entirely. I feel as well now as I ever did in my life, and I can be safe in saying that Cardui is the best medicine on earth for women. I had little faith in it before I commenced taking it, but now I would not exchange it for all the other medicines." Are you one of those poor women sufferers, who feel that life is hardly worth the living? Have you that ever lastingly tired, nervous, worn-out, headachy feeling? If so, get a bot tle of Cardui and begin taking it to day. No doubt it is the very medi cine you need. N, Kn'rff, rfj Chattanoom Medicine Co., Ladiet' Advisory Dept..
