Meadorsville, Ky.--Mrs. Cynthia Higginbotham, of this town, says: "At my age, which is 65, the liver does not act so well as when young. A few years ago, my stomach was all out of fix. I was constipated, my liver didn't act. My digestion was bad, and it took so little to upset me. My ap petite was gone. I was very weak... I decided I would give Black Draught a thorough trial as I knew it was highly recommended for this trouble. I began tak!ng it. I felt better after a few doses. My appetite improved and I became stronger. My bowels acted naturally and the least trouble was soon righted with a few doses of Black-Draught." Seventy years of successful use has made Thedford's Black-Draught a standard, household remedy. Every member, of every family, at times, need the help that Black-Draught can give in cleansing the system and re lieving the troubles that come from constipation, indigestion, lazy liver, etc. You cannot keep well unless your stomach, liver and bowels are in good working order. Keep them that way. Try Black-Draught. It acts promptly, gently and in a natural way. If you feel sluggish, take a dose tonight. You will feel fresh tomorrow.

TRADE MARK, The "FORDSON" Tractor is the result of extensive trials and experiments conducted by Mr. Henry Ford, covering a period of many years. Before placing this tractor on the market, every detail has been thoroughly tried out under actual farming conditions in various parts of this country and abroad. Being small, light and economical, the "FORDSON" tractor is adapted for use on small farms, as well as on the largest, It will pull all farming implements and do the work gener ally done by horses on the farm. In addition, by its belt pul ley the tractor will drive farm machinery such as a thresher, ensilage cutter, sawmill, etc., making the "'FORDSON" a truly universal tractor. The tractor is designed as a two plow machine and will pull two 14-inch plows in the stiffest of soil. It will maintain a draw bar pull of 1800 pounds at plowing speed. In low gear a draw bar pull of 2500 pounds is obtained. The amount of ground plowed also depends on conditions, eight acres in ten hours would be a fair average, at a cost of about 75c per acre. When used at stationary work and running at full power the consumption does not exceed two and three-fourths gallons of fuel per hour and will de velop 22 h. p.
