Kl MM M ut BAICIMG 'POWDER w s m . West Tenn. Wheat Crop looking Good. S. F. Howard, Esq., of Number Seven, was a business visitor here Monday. He informed us that the wheat crop throughout his section is looking very well indeed, and that the acreage in Obion County is con siderably larger than last year. Dyersburg, Tenn., April 19. The condition of the wheat crop in this section is normal in spite of the un favorable season of February and March. The acreage for the county has been increased over last year more than 30 per cent. ' In the Dyersburg section the in crease has been 60 per cent. Some districts in this immediate section that have never planted wheat be fore have a liberal acreage in. The reduction in cotton acreage will be about 20 per cent. More garden seed has been sold by dealers in this county than any two previous years. Farmers are beginning to feel good over the prospects of a good season. Ripley, Tenn., April 19. From best information the wheat crop in Lauderdale County is looking fine. The acreage is about five times more than usual, caused by a disposition on the part of farmers to diversify and get away from cotton. None has been plowed up for any other crop. Brownsville, Tenn., April 19. The wheat crop in Haywood County is in an excellent condition. There won't be any of the crop plowed up and planted in cotton, as the farmers of this county are determined to raise plenty of everything to eat and then plant cotton for the money crop. Dresden, Tenn., April 19. The wheat crop in this section is about 40 per cent increase over 1914 in acreage. It has come out wonder fully in the last few days and it is now believed that an average yield will be harvested from the present crop. It is not believed that any of it will be plowed up for the purpose of planting cotton. Clerk for Prison. John J.

"I must confess", sayj Mrs. Eula Mae Reid, of this place, "thai Cardui, the-woman's tonic, has done me a great deal of good. Before I commenced using Cardui. I would spit up everything 1 ate. I had a tired, sleepy feeling all the time, and was irregular. I could hardly drag around, and would have severe headaches con tinuously. Since taking Cardui, I have entirely quit spitting up what I eat. Everything seems to digest all right, and 1 have gained 10 pounds in weight." If you are a victim of any of the numer ous ills so common to your sex, it is wrong to suffer. For half a century, Cardui has been re lieving just such ills, as is proven by the thousands of letters, similar to the above, which pour into our office, year by year. Cardui is successful because it is com posed of ingredients which act specifically on the womanly constitution, and helps build the weakened organs back to health and strength. Cardui has helped others, and will help you, too. Get a bottle today. You won't regret it. Your druggist sells it Write to : Chattanooga Medicine Co.. Ladles' Ad visory Dept., Chattanooga.

Not a Log House. We are instructed by the Rives correspondent to say that the first schoolhouse in Rives was not a log house as reported, but a box house made with lumber from one of the early saw mills in the county. This was not a bad mistake for a news paper. If we all got thru as light as that the newspaper would be more accurate than the best of the historians. There are lots of inac curacies in the histories. Moose at Fulton. Members of the Moose Lodge in Union City were in Fulton last Fri day night drilling a class of 23 members of the Fulton lodge.
