prove beyond question that thousands of
cases of inflammation of the ovaries and
womb are annually cured by the use of
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
"DEAR Ms. PM. nKHAN:-Gradual loss of strength and nerve force
told me something was radically wrong with me. I ad severe shooting
pains throught the pelvic organs, yondramps and extreme irritation com
pelled me to seek medical advice. The doctor said that I had ovarian
trouble and ulceration, and advised an operation. Istrongly objected to
this and decided to try Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
I soon found that my jng udgment was corret, and that all the good
things said about this medicine were true, and day by day I felt less
pain and increased appetite. The ulceration soon healed, and the other
complications disappeared and in eleven weeks I was once more strong
and vigorous and perfectly well.
"My heartiest thanks are sent to you for the grat good you have
done me."- Sincerely yours, Miss MARGARET IMERK.LEY, 275 Third St,
M-ilwaukee, Wis.
Hiss Claussen Saved from a Surgical Operation.
U DEAR MRS. PINKHAM:--It seems to me that
all the endorsements that I have read of the value
of Lydia E. Pinkham's Compound do not express
one-half of the virtue the great medicine really
possesses. I know that it saved my life and I
want to give the credit where it belongs. I suf.
fered with ovarian trouble for five years, had three
operations and spent hundreds of dollars on doc
tors and medicines but this did not cure me
after all.
"However, what doctors and medicines failed
to do, Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Comrn
 . pound did. Twenty bottles restored me to per.
i ' feet health and I feel sure that had I known of its
"° { value before, and let the doctors alone, I ivould
have been spared all the pain and expense that
,Fitless operations cost me. If the women who are suffering, and
the doctors do not help them, will try Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege.
table Compound, they will not be disappointed with the results."-

Gives Accommodation for Forty Cows
and Twenty Calves.
Sub.-Will you kindly give me a
plan for a cattle barn for forty cows
and twenty calves, with three or four
box stalls. I have a bank on the north
side about ten feet high, from which
I should like a driveway in the base
ment (which I propose to be of stone),
running from east to west. I want a,
part of loft to be a granary with a
room below it for preparing food. The
cheapest way to supply water to the
cattle in the stalls. I intend sinking
a well in the barn and erecting a wind
The plan shown provides 39 single.
cow stalls. 14 calf stalls and 4 box
stalls, with feed room under the gran
ary. For cleaning the cow stables
there is a passage nine feet wide be-.
tween each row of cattle running the;
full length of basemen', so that a cart
or boat may be driven through and,
manure taken out. The barn (begin.
ning at the east) consists of a 16-foot
4-- - - -
bent, then a 14, a 12-foot driveway
then two 14-feet bents, making 70 feed
in all. There should be an overshoot
of six feet on the east side of drive
way in the barn to give room for a
team to pass under if there should be
a loaded wagon on the drive floor. If
desired a window in any of the feed
alleys at the west end of barn may be
made into a door to get into the base
By having a large tank kept full ot
water and another small one connect
ed with it, and the water trough in
front of the cattle, the animals will
always have a continuous supply of
water. The small tank is so arranged
with a float that as the cattle drink
the water in the trough the water in
the small tank is lowered. This
causes the float to fall, opening the
valve and allowing the water to cohme
in from the large tank. As the water
rises in the small tank it also raises
the float which shuts off the water
from the large tank. The water in
the troughs in front of cattle is there
fore always kept at an even height.
The water troughs are put in front of
mangers, and can be arranged so as to
have a lid on hinges at one side of
manger which the cattle will learn to
lift when they wish to drink. The lid
will drop back of its own accord.
Horse Chestnut and Buckeye.
L. M.-Are the horse chestnut and
the buckeye the same? How can I
grow them from the seed?
The horse chestnut and buckeye, al
though somewhat similar, are quite
different trees and belong to different
genera. The horse chestnut belongs
to the genus Aesculus, and the buck
eye to the genus Pavia, both, however,
closely related. In order to grow tnem
successfully from the seed, the nuts
should be planted before they become I
dry. Soon after they are ripe in the
autumn is the best time. The nuts
should be planted about two inches
The Balanced Ration.
A. E. M.--What is meant by the
term "balanced ration" in feeding
A balanced ration is one which
contains as nea.ly as possible all the
elements required by the fowls in the
neded proportions. For instance, an t
egg is largely composed of albumen st
(nitrogenous matter), but the hen
requires carbonaceous food to keep up
her energy, fat, warmth, etc. She,
therefore, requires food containing Ri
both of these compounds in properly m
balanced proportion in order that she re
may do her best. A balanced poultty Si
ration should satisfy all the needs of eg
the fowls, without loss due to an ex
cess of either nitrogenous or carbona
ceous matter.
Hazel Brush.
Subscriber-How can I rid my land sn
of hazel brush without plowing it up?
Loosen the clumps by digging
round them and after cutting the in
roots close to the stems with an axe, Oo
pull them out with a horse and chain. T
This will probably be easier than cut- B
ting the bushes and burning the brush
and then plowing, and the land will
be in much better shape for using at
once. I don't quite understand your ne
objection to plowing your land, but it
it is to save pasture among the l)ushes
I think you would have better results
by cleaning your land of the hazels as
either by slashing and burning orad
hauling out, and then plow and re,
seed the land.-J. F.
Tree Planting in the Fall.
E. R. C.-Could maple and cedar
trees be planted in the fall with any
degree of success? What kinds of
trees may be planted in the fall? t
Maple trees ad cedars may be en

sooner it is done now the better. Is
Spring planting, however, is pref'r- Det

as soon as the ground is dry enough.

Evidence Antagonistic to Physiologi
cal Theory of the Emotions.
In the Journal de Psychologie, M.
Mayer treats of the influence of the
mind on bodily secretions. We know
that a tempting morsel of food makes
the "mouth water," and that stories
or memories can bring tears to the
eyes. Observations on dogs have
shown that the nature of the saliva
secreted at the sight of food depends
on the nature of the food. The stom
achal secretions of the dog are also
excited by the sight of food. Some

temperament," not illusioned by chi
meras or what is out of reach, patient.
ly wait until the food comes to their
gullet before their mouths water or
their gastric juices are provoked. It
is assumed that what holds for dogs
probably holds for men. The obser
vations appear to show the import
ance of eating food that pleases and
avoiding what displeases or dis-'ists.
They also run counter to the physio
logical theory of the emotions, accord
ing to which the physiological phe
nomena are caused by organic
changes. This may be the case with
some "emotions," for example the
feeling of hunger, but for emotions
properly so-called it is rather the
other way about.-London Globe.
