A Great Discovery
(BY J. H. WATBON, M. D.)
Swollen hands, ankles, feet are due to
a dropsical condition, often caused by
disordered kidnoys. Naturally when the
kidneys are deranged the blood is filled
with poisonous waste matter, which set
tles in the feet, ankles and wrists or
under the eyes in bag-like formations.
As a remedy for those easily recog
nized symptoms of inflammation caused
by uric acidas scalding urine, back
ache and frequent urination, as well as
sediment in the urine, or if uric acid in
the blood has caused rheumatism, lum
bago, sciatica, gout, it is simply wonder
ful how quickly Anuric acts the pains
and stiffness rapidly disappear.
Take a glass of hot water before meals
and Anuric to flush the kidneys.
Step into any drug store and ask for
Anuric, many times more potent than
lithia and eliminates uric acid as hot
water melts sugar.
Ten Billion Tons of Coal.
The Nenana coal field, Alaska, will
be tributary to the government rail
road now under construction from Sew
ard to Fairbanks. Though the coal of
this field is lignite and hence of low
grade, yet it has great value as a
source of fuel and power for Fairbanks
and other Yukon placer camps. The
field is about sixty miles south of Fair
banks. It is estimated by the United
States geological survey, department
of the interior, that the Nenana field
contains some ten billion tons of lig
nite. The Nenana coal field lies in
what is known as the Bonnifield re
gion, which also contains some gold
placers that have been mined in a small
way for the last ten years.

What Is Wanted.
Upon farms where stock is kept, a
well-broken collie dog is an unfailing
source of help and satisfaction, while
an unbroken, untrained dog is a con
tinual nuisance. In handling stock
with a dog, it is important that the dog
be well-trained, and that great care
be exercised while the animals are
getting used to being managed by him.
When those two conditions are ful
filled it is surprising how easily and
economically stock can be taken care

stock it is a great advantage to have

a dog, upon which to break the puppy.

It is an excellent plan to have an
older and well-broken dog to assist in
the training, as dogs are imitative.
The puppy quickly learns what is

It is as easy to teach them to mind

HOGS INFESTED WITH WORMS
Animal Cannot Produce Pork Economi
cally While in Weakened Condi-
tionRemedy Is Given.
A hog that is infested with worms
cannot produce pork economically, be
cause its system is not in normal con
dition. Furthermore, such a hog is
also more susceptible to contagious
and other diseases than one not af
fected in that manner. We have of
ten made the statement that worms
are frequently the indirect cause of
cholera. Do not understand us to
say that worms will produce cholera
says, a writer in an exchange. Far
from it. Cholera is a germ disease
and can be produced only by the chol
era germ, but a strong, vigorous hoy
is not nearly so susceptible to cholera
as is one whose system is in a run
A very good, practical remedy for
worms consists in feeding one pound
of copperas to 100 pigs for a period
ot five days. Then feed no copj^ras
for six weeks after that feed cop
peras for five days again as before and
continue this intermittent copperas
feeding from birth to block. The cop
peras should be dissolved in water
and mixed with the grain, preferably
ground grain of some kind. Many
hog feeders arc using this remedy and
recommend it very highly.
PREPARING SOIL FOR WHEAT
Quite as Much Depends on Prelimi

Quite as much depends upon the

raise wheat on his farm, in the old.
rough way, and could get but ten or
twelve bushels per acre. He visited
th state experiment station at a time
when a plot of ground was being pre
pared for wheat and became so im
pressed with their thorough methods
of soil preparation that he prepared
a field on his farm in the same way,
and from this harvested a crop of 35
bushels of good wiieat per acre, the
