Often this paiti is asso ciated with nervousness, sleeplessness and loss of appetite. The cause of such suffering is generally to tie traced to derangement of the womanly function, or a diseased condition of the delicate womanly organs. In such cases the action of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription is marvelous in the prompt relief of pain and permanent cure of disease. It regulates the peri odic function, dries disagreeable drains, heals inflammation and ulceration, and cures female weakness. It cures when all other means have been tried in vain. Sick women are invited to consult I)r. Pierce, by letter, free . All correspond ence is held as strictly private and sacredly confidential. Address Dr. R. \ . Pierce, Buffalo, N. V. In a little over thirty years Dr. Pierce, assisted by his staff of nearly a score of physicians, lias cured more than half a million women. "I was a great sufferer for six years and doe tored all the time with a number physicians, but did liffcrent benefit," writes Mrs. George Sogdeti, of 641 Honda Street, Saginaw (South), Mich.

The deep and shallow cultivation of corn was discussed by western farmers at length in the last special farmers' institute edition of the Live Stock Indicator, of Kansas, City, Mo. As a brief summary of the various papers published, it was said : Deep and shallow cultivation of corn brings out a variuty of views, j Those who favor the shallow me thod are emphatic in their recoin mendations of the common harrow, both before and after the corn is planted ; as it is claimed that no implement will work greater de lure is consumed Ht tin- sann' time. In some cases the Intrrow is usetl until the crop is six inches iii-rli The main arguments given t'ot the shallow cultivation are, that corn roots arc not disturbed ; the surface is left in much better condition for the following crops; less horse power is required, while the slml low mulch is just as effective in conserving moist tire. On the ot her hand deep cultivation is claimed to be better on rieh soils, on account of the root pruning, checking the growth of stem and leaves, causing the production of grain. In wet seasons deep cultivation is some times essential in order to check weed growth. All are agreed that there is little danger of doing any damage to roots when corn is small.

Think how many years she has been building, of the toils and privations endured, of the wounds received, and let no suspicion follow her actions. The purity of women is the salva tion of the race, the hope of future greatness and the redemption of man. Wipe out her parity aud man sinks beneath the wave of despair, with no star to guide his life into a channel of safety.

The rice association, which was organized for the purpose of better introducing the cereal throughout the country with u view of increas ing the demand for the product, is meeting with great success and ac complishing incalculable good for the industry. Very little of the rice produced in this country is ex ported, beyond, perhaps Mexico and Central America, l 'util a few years ago, rice, as :i table food, was little known in the I'niteal States outside of a few of the Southern States where the article was produced. In the past few years, the production of rice in the Southern States has multiplied one hundred, and perhaps, five hun dred-fold. The enormous increase in production is creating a surplus - in the crop for the distribution and consumption of which new fields and more consumers must be found, and it is for the purpose of exploiting the fields of the north and east and of teaching tho be nighted inhabitants thereof, to eat this wonderful health and strength producing food, that tho Rice As sociation was called into existence. Its work and progress, so far, have been conductive of immense good to the industry, a good which promises to increase as its efforts are extended, until the cereal as a table food product becomes known throughout the entire country nnd the demand becomes equal to or surpasses all that the South can supply.

Colonel S. P. B. Morse, repre senting the Southern Pacific Kail road company, is distributing for the agricultural department of tho United Stntes, 11 limited supply of rice imported by Prof. S. A. Knapp for the purpose of making a thor ough test as to whether or not it will prove a success in the rice growing districts of Louisiana aual Texas. The rico is of two varie ties, known as late and early, and was imported from Chiugoku and Chikuzeu districts of Japan. Each sack contains 50 pounds, ^sufficient quantity to plant one acre. Mach party to whom the rice has been furnished is requested to make a report of its progress on tho blank form. It is thought that the Texas field will produce a better grade of rice from the above mentioned samples than the countries from whioh they were imported.— Hous ton Chronicle . A TEXAS WONDER.
