Something Aboutthe Farm
From Progressive Faia er.
HOW TO PRESERVE EGGS.
Use pure water that has been
thoroughly boiled and then
cooled. To each 10 quarts of
water add 1 quart of water-glass.
Pack the eggs in a jar and pour
solution over them, covering
Keep eggs in a cool, dark
place. A dry cool cellar is a
If the eggs are kept in too
warm a place the silicate is de
posited and the eggs are not
properly protected. D o n o t
wash the eggs before packing,
for by so doing you injure their
keeping quality, probably by di
solving the mucilaginous coating
on the outside of the shell.
For packing, use only perfectly
fresh eggs, for stale eggs will
not be saved and may prove
harmful to others.
Water-glass is a very cheap
product, that can usually be pro
cured at not to exceed 50 cents
per gallon, and one gallon would
make enough solution to pre
serve 50 dozen eggs, so that the
cost of material for this method
would only be about one cent per
dozen. Water-glass is sodium
and potassium silicate, sodium
silicate being usually the cheap
er. If wooden kegs or barrels
are to be used in which to pack
the eggs, they should first be
thoronghly scalded with boiling
water, to sweeten and purefy
HOW TO KILL CHICKEN LICE
Watch out for lice and mites on
the old hens and little chicks.
Examine them closely at least
once a week and if any are
found thoroughly disinfect or
whitewash their sleeping quar
ters and either use some insect
powders, grease or dip on both
the old and young chicks, after
the young ones are feathered
they can be dipped, as neither
young nor old chicks can possibly
thrive and do well when they
are infected with insects. As
soon as the weather is warm
enough the grown fowls should
be dipped during the middle of a
pretty warm day in a solution of
75 to 100 parts water (to which
has been added a small amounC
of Pearline or washing powders
of some kind) to one part Creso
or some other good dip. T w
men can dip 500 fowls in one
half day. The work willbe done
thoroughly and all insects as
well as nits will be killed.
If you are located near a good
sized town, the garden may be
made to pay many times what
the same area would pay in cot
ton or corn. If you grow strictly
first-class vegetables, there will
almost always be a demand for
them. Find out what particu
lar vegetables the people of your
town like and grow them. Make
a small beginning and gradually
increase as the demand increases.
This phase of the farm work is
well worth the attention of any
Tobacco stems and dust, or the
refuse from tobacco and cigar
factories is excellent material to
put in nests for the laying hens
and some can be sprinkled on the
floor or mixed with the litter.
When breeding horses the aim
should be to produce the one that
will bring the largest profit. If
cheaper animals are desired, sell
the higher priced animal and buy
the cheaper grade.

WHAT'S THE REASON
Many Opelousas People in Poor Health
Without Knowing the Caese.
There are scores of people who
drag out a miserable existence
without realizing the cause of
their suffering. Day after day
they are racked with backache
and headache; suffer from ner
vousness, dizzineaso weakness,
languor and depression. Likely
the kidneys have fallen behind
in their work of filtering the
blood and that is the root of the
trouble. Look to your kidneys,
assist them in their work-give
them the help they need. You
can use no better remedy than
Dean's Kidney Pills--endorsed
by over one hundred thousand
people, and by your neighbors in
Mrs. T. Compton Chachere,
Landry St., Opelousas, La.,

received splendid results from
the use of Doan's Kidney Pills,

some time by irregular passages

May Be Made Strong at Small
Expense and No Risk
There are hundreds of women in
this vicinity, weak, thin, run-down,
tired out and nervous. Such women
need Vinol just as much as did Mrs.
Jane Pepper, of 2307 Howard street,
San Francisco, CaL, who says:
"I have used Vinol for some time
with particularly gratifying results. I
was run down, weak and debilitated,
and my appetite was gone. After tak
ing several bottles of Vinol I found
my condition greatly improved, and
do not hesitate to recommend Vinci
to anyone similarly affected."
Vinol is not a secret nostrum, but
a delicious cod liver and iron tonic
without oil, which will create an ap
petite, tone up the digestive orgaus
make pure blood and create strength.

If You Were an Expert,
What CarWould Ybaky?
The time has passed when automlbiles can be *Iw e.o
theirappearances or claims. This is aday when yoi e vc i
purchaser must be shown what the car for which you pay your
moneywill actually perform; what it will do. Beware of a
automobile salesman who attempts to beguile you with a
pleasing story. Tell him to show the goods and proes to you
that his cars are worth the money. Find out whether his car
is a real car or mnly an assembled automobile it to sell.
S You have a right to your money's worth, but it is up to you
to see that you get it. Deeper than all appearances, there
are a few expert tests which ought to be applied to every car.
Who makes the car? Is it an assembled car or made from top
to bottom by one manufacturer? What kind of a guarantee
is on it? Does the manufacturer respect his own product
with a real guarantee, or does he want you to take the chance?
What do parts' cost you and how conveniently can you get
them? How many cars of this make are in service and how
many are giving satisfaction? Questions like these go deep into
the heart of the case, and if you put them rigorously upon
any car you will find out with a certainty whether or not that
car is worth its price.
We are selling Studebaker E-M-F "30" and Flandera "20"
cars because we know that, dollar for dollar, their equal is not
sold in the market today. The records of many thousands of
cars in all kinds of service have convinced us absolutely.
Studebaker E-M-F "30" and Flanders "20" cars are built to
run, and because they run they sell. If we cannot prove to
you under the most searching test that Studebaker cars are
absolutely the best automobile values in the market, we do
not want your business; but we can prove it, and your
neighbors who drive these cars will tell you the same thing.
Be an expert when it comes to buying a car. You can, by
getting from us some further ideas on real tests of an
automobile. Clip the attached coupon and send it to
us now because we have something new to tell you
which you ought to know, whatever car you have
