Mrs. Osborne Says She Shudders
When She Thinks How
She Suffered.
"For years," said Mrs. V. B. Osborne,
Of «^Lancaster Ave., Lexington, Ky„
"I have been in a run-down condition ;
nervous, weak and dizzy. I was ac
tually so nervous that .ny sudden
noise or excitement would produce a
palpitation of my heart "that fright
ened me. I absolutely could not climb
stairs, for to attempt such would thor
oughly exhaust me.
"I had nervous headaches and when
they came on It seemed that an Iron
band was drawn tight around my head.
I now shudder when I think of those
headaches. My stomach was weak
and I could not digest the lightest
liquid foq^fc Any food of a solid na
ture cause^^^usea and the sickening
sensation remulned for hours.
"My misery was almost unbearable.
My sleep was never sound and I waB
worn out all the time. My condition
was indeed a very deplorable one. I
finally sought treatment in Cincinnati,
but nothing helped me one particle.
I was on the verge of giving up In
despair when a neighbor pleaded with
me to try Tanlac. I obtained a bottle
of the medicine and began its use.
"I began improving at once and soon
felt my nervousness and dizziness dis
appearing. Then my headaches left
me and I realized my strength had re
turned. My appetite and digestion im
proved and I am now so much better
In every way. This Tanlac is a won
derful medicine and the only one that
ever really helped me. I hope every
poor woman who is suffering as I did
will try It."

North Dakota Farmer Eliminate«
Runts by Liberal Feeding and
Proper Management.
(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of AfTlculture.)
To obtttin the most rapid growth
and best development of live stock
keep good stock, and see that noth
ing checks its growth from the time
it is born. This Is the method by
which a North Dakota farmer pre
vents runts among his animals.
In a letter on this subject to the
United States Department of Agricul
ture, which has been studying the
causes and prevention of undersized
There Is No Excuse for Runty Pigs.
animals, he says, "In the 40 years of
my farming and breeding and raising
live stock of all kinds I do not remem
ber a runt in any class or breed. I
have always been a liberal feeder and
a good caretaker. Besides, all stock
had access to good, fresh water at all
times. With this. In addition to good
shelter and ventilaticn, it seems that
ray young stock would not stop grbw
ing from the time they were born,
lise good judgment in feeding, and
don't neglect the details."
A farmer In Vermont writes, "A
well-bred animal well cared for will
not produce runts. There is absolute
ly no excuse for one In live stock or
poultry. By well-bred live stock I
mean strong, healthy stock, well taken
care of for several generations, and
bred for constitution. This has been
my experience from boyhood, first,
with rabbits and game fowls, and la
ter with sheep, hogs, horses and cat
tle. An accident ta> a well-bred and
healthy animal will, If the accident
occurs before It reaches mnturity, af
fect its size but not its productive
capâcity. That is, it will not influ
ence Its ability to produce such young
as it would have had If no accident
had occurred. Eliminate all females
that are not good mothers, and you
wllL soon stamp the whole herd with
constitution. Then with care, which
means attention and feed, your runts
will fall to materialize."
Some Breeders Insist That Every Ani
mal They Buy or Sell Must
Pass Standard.
So strongly has the purpose of the
better-sires campaign, now being con
ducted by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture, appealed to some
breeders that they are not content
with purebreds only, but every ani
mal they buy or sell in addition to
being a purebred must pass a standard
of exceUence. The methods of one
bre^k'fin Upshur county, West Vir
ginie/- according to a report received
by the department, illustrate this
tendency. This breeder has a fine
herd of Angus cattle. All calves which
fall below the standard of excellence
that he has set are not registered, but
are either castrated or sold on the
open market as common cattle.
Animals Entitled to Liberal Treatment
While Carrying Young and
Growing Wool.
After the ewes are bred they are
growing their young, growing a crop of
wool, maintaining their own body and
should be fed accordingly. Give the
ewes enough good, nutritious feed to
keep them In a good healthy, thrifty
condition. Where pasture is abund
ant, they will need no^^jier feed, as
green feed is the

Game Sanctuaries for Eastern States
WASHINGTON.—Senator Shields

Mandate: New International Relation
WHAT Is a mandate? The man
date Is asserted by international
lawyers to be a new prlnelpje In In
ternational relations. In theory a
mandate is an order from a league of
the civilized nations of the world to
one of those nations, nftklng It re
sponsible for the welfare of a certain
nation or piece of terri|pry consid
ered to be less civilized. The Ideal
of the mandate Is that the civilized
nations, Instead of exploiting the
backward ones, each as It can, should
care for them and be responsible to
the whole world for the results.
In practice a mandate Is permis
sion, given by the powers which won
the late war to one of those powers,
to supervise the affairs of some back
ward country. The mandatory na-.
tlon enjoys certain advantages In that
territory, but It also has certain re
sponsibilities to the League of Na
tions, which, If enforced, would raise
the development of backward coun
tries to a higher lere! both frort! the
economic and the humanitarian point
of view. Of course, In this matter,
everything really depends upon what
the council of the league wants to do
and Is able to do.
The mandate also seeks to keep
one nation from exploiting exclusive
ly a backward territory, and to give
Eight Western States for Reclamation

GOVERNORS of western states,
after a preliminary discussion in
Denver of irrigation and reclamation
legislation have presented to Presi

In the party were Gov. Thomas E.
Campbell of Arizona, president of the
League of the Southwest; Gov. D. W.
Davis of Idaho, president of the
Western States Reclamation associa

Gov. Charles R. Mabey of Utah ; Gov.

"Commerce the Lifeblood of a Nation"
THE old axiom that "Commerce Is
the lifeblood of a nation" could
be amended to read "and of Its
courts," according to attorneys of
years' experience before the United
States Supreme ciArt.
Inquiry of a number of experts on
constitutional law as to the section
which has been productive of most
litigation brought the unanimous re
sponse: "Article 1, section 8, para
graph 3." This section, one of the
shortest in the Constitution, declares
that congress shall have the power
to "regulate commerce with foreign
nations and cmong the several states."
From that brief clause, however,
have arisen all the rate cases, those
Involving public utilities, the inter
state commerce commission, child la
bor, federal employees' liability act,
the lottery laws, the white slave act
and, more recently, the numerous pro
hibition statutes preceding the amend

Chief Justice Marshall asserted In
a judicial opinion that "commerce"

the Appalachian mountains by pro
tecting the forests and restoring the
deforested areas. The commission has
purchased something short of '2,000,
000 acres In those mountains, and the
title is now vested in the United
States and under the control of the
Agricultural department. ' Of these
2,000.000 acres some 400,000 acres are
located in New Hampshire, 387,000 in
Virginia, 326,000" In North Carolina,
300,000 In Tennessee, 163,000 In
Georgia, 130,000 in West Virginia,
130,000 in Pennsylvania, 62,000 in Ala
bama, 36,000 in Arkansas, 32,000 in
Massachusetts and 19,000 In South
Carolina. Eventually some 7,000,00t
acres will be purchased.
These lands, while primarily pur
chased for the purpose of protecting
the watersheds of navigable rivers,
are also intended as recreation
grounds for all the states lying east
of the Mississippi river. I believe
that It Is of great Importance and
great interest to the people of all the
states lying east of the Mississippi

the other members of the league cer

as much for the nations which are
not members of the league.
The council of the League of Na
tions acknowledges three chief kinds
of mandates. The A class mandates
cover former Turkish possessions, in
cluding Mesopotamia. The B class
mandates cover islands of the Paci
fic, south of the Equator, and the C
class mandates cover Islands In the
Pacific, north of the Equator. The
Palestine mandate is In a sense a
fourth kind.
It is sometimes said that A, in man
datory language, stands for oil, and
C stands for cables. In the adminis
tration of the B class mandate, there

menns to secure the fulfillment of
the platform pledge of reclamation.
Both of the big parties were pledged
to the program. Our efforts probably
will be centered on the Smith-Mc
Nary bill."
The Smlth-McNary bill is known as
the "co-operative reclamation act" and
provides for the establishment of a
$250,000,000 revolving fund for the
construction of new irrigation projects
and the completion of those already
under way. One of its provisions re
quires the employment of former serv
ice men on reclamation projects
erected from the fund. It also gives
preference to service men on any
lands made available through the re
clamation act.
In addition the governors ask the
early passage of a bill authorizing
the appointment of a federal "am
bassador" to participate In the com
pact proposed between the Colorado
river basin states. This movement
has the backing of the League of the
Southwest. It Is hoped to settle the
long-standing disputes between the
states over the use of the waters of
the Colorado river for Irrigation pur
poses. Settlement will save thousands
of dollars to taxpayers In court litiga

whole family of legal battles turning

Reports coming to the United States
Department of Agriculture often In
clude stories of the surprises which
cow owners meet with when they start
keeping records of their cows' produc

lerd ; but among his cows was a crip
pled, ten-year-old Jersey named
Goldie. Old Goldie led the whole as
sociation, with an annual production
>f approximately 9,300 pounds of milk
md 526 pounds of fat, and an income
>ver cost of feed amounting to $267,
in spite of the fact that when the'
est started she had alrea'dy gone
three months since freshening. The
amusing part of Goldie's record Is
:liat her owner tried to sell her Just
)efore she went on test, for $75. Six
sionths later he refused $275 for her.
The whole herd of which Goldie
was a part averaged over 300 pounds
of fat for the year. In contrast with
this was another herd of 37 cows In
the same association, which had been
reputed to be the best In that part of
the state. Yet 14 of these were sold
during the year as unprofitable, and
It seemed likely that more _of them
would be.
Similar stories come from other
»fates. The dairy division has been
giving a great deal of time to the
extension of cow-testing associations
throughout the country, and there are
now nearly 500 associations In various

It is 'both profitable and practicable
to know for a certainty the worth of
a cow by weighing her milk. A man
In a cow-testing association has the
milk of every cow weighed and tested
once a month, from which it Is easy to
calculate the total for a year. He
saves the trouble of doing It himself
by having the cow tester*do It. The
tester also weighs the feed, and fig
ures out the cost of the milk ; so that
at the end of a year the owner of a
herd of cows knows exactly what each
one has given, what she has eaten,
and how much Income over cost of
feed she has brought him.
To Keep Them Growing Rapidly Fur
nish Plenty of Good Hay—It
Aids Digestive System.
The Important thing is to keep the
calves growing as rapidly as possible
and to see that they are provided with
plenty of good hay. This, more than
any other one feed, will help develop
the calf's digestive system and should,
therefore, never be overlooked.
Even if the calf Is on pasture It should
be given a chance to eat what hay
It will consume.
