SYRUP OF FIGS FOR A ClfSJOWELS It is cruel to force nauseating, harsh physic into a sick child. Look back at your childhood days. Remember the "dose" mother Insisted on castor oil, calomel, cathartics. How you hated them, how you fought against taking them. With our children it's different. Mothers who cling to the old form of physic simply don't realize what they do. The children's revolt Is well-found-ad. Their tender little "insides" are Injured by them. If your child's stomach, liver and bowels need cleansing, give only deli cious "California Syrup of Figs." Its action is positive, but gentle. Millions of mothers keep this harmless "fruit laxative" handy; they know children love to take it; that it never fails to clean the liver and bowels and sweet en the stomach, and that a teaspoonful given today saves a sick child tomor row. Ask at the store for a BO-cent bottle of "California Syrup of Figs," which has full directions for babies, children of all ages and for grown-ups plainly on each bottle. Adv. Not Always Simple.

"Los Angeles county, California, Is the American Riviera, and in no way is the visitor more reminded of the beau ty of the famous Mediterranean play ground than in the treatment of the roadsides," says the American High way association. "There is one broad boulevard where, for 18 miles one trav els between continuous rose bowers backed with palms or firs. About fifty thousand rose bushes of fifty vnrieties were used In this landscape gardening. "In many plnces the roads wind through orange, lemon and walnut groves separated from the roadway by masses of rose bushes four to six feet high, which charm the eye and fill the air with fragrance even In December. "The work was done by Individuals, but It was so successful that about two years ago a committee was organized to carry on such roadside treatment on a larger scale and in accordance with comprehensive plans. Funds were raised by a direct tax, and the county forestry department was placed In charge of the execution of the project. "About two hundred miles of road now have 90 road trellises to the mile of highway. Each trellis Is 20 feet long, five feet high and supports five trashes. Fifty varieties of roses are used, and give an attractive combina tion of colors. In addition, popples, petunias and geraniums, which grow luxuriantly in that climate, have also been used along the boulevards, and palms and eucalyptus trees have been set out where necessary to breuk flat monotony or furnish a background." HAVE HOUSE PROPERLY BUILT Duty Man Owes to Hli Neighbor and to the City In Which He Plana to Reside. Any house, whether it have three rooms or twenty, is a fascinating tudy. It is as full of possibilities as he owner himself, and like him Its character is sometimes fully devel oped, sometimes not. But even an old, a stuffy house, one that has been as long "for let" as a man's conscience, may be improved! Here a window may be thrown out to admit light or to Include a view, there a wing may be added and a dull dwelling transformed into one full of delightful surprises. A roperly built house adds greatly to the appearance of the street on which It Is built. "The most fascinating house I ever knew," said an architect recently, "had rlglntilly but four rooms, to which ev ery five or six years a new wing was added, the net result being a long, rambling, bow-windowed structure, which one never left without regret, nd to which friends come homing as to a dovecote." Concealed Will in Book. A remarkable' story concerning the discovery of a will was recently made known. Dr. Peter Quln Keegan, an elderly Irishman, and an LL.D. of Dub lin university, was keenly interested in botany. A short time before his death he met Mr. Ronald Ellwood, trav eler for a Penrith firm, and a friend ship sprang up, based oh their botani cal studies. Doctor Keegan gave him a book on the subject, but Mr. Ell wood had no occasion to refer to it until a few days ago. He then found that two of the pages were fastened together, and outside one of them was an instruction In Doctor Keegan's pe culiar writing that the pages were not to be opened until after his death. Doctor Keegan being already dead, Mr. Ellwood opened the pages and found between them the old gentleman's will. Will Build Russian Canal. The project for the construction and equipment of a Volga-Don canal, as designed by the Russian minister of ways and communications, has been npproved'by the government. The pro jected canal will play an important part in the economic development of southeastern Russia and of the Volga and Don basins. Grain from Tsarit sin and timber and ore from the Urals will thereby obtain a direct outlet to the ports of the Sea of Azof and thence to the Black sea. Moreover, the canal will make it possible to sup ply coal to all the chief cities and in dustrial centers of the Volga and sur rounding country from the rich coal district of the Donetz basin. Planting Trees In Streets. J. H. Heed says of street planting: "Proceed with caution, but proceed. It is too little appreciated that results from ornamental-tree planting, (or its neglect, are to continue ' indefinitely. In the generations to come tree-lovers will be praising the good taste and good Judgment of the planters and caretakers before them, or will be criti cizing the Injudicious work, or the en tire absence of what should then have been done." Plant Vines. Home grounds whether In the coun try or city, are Incomplete without vines. WEEDS ARE INJURIOUS Weeds are Injurious to man in the following ways: 1. They crowd out the grow ing crop. 2. They consume the moisture necessary for a crop. 3. They consume the mineral or other food elements essential to a crop. 4. They pull down the crop. 5. The seeds are difficult to re move. 6. They harbor Insects. 7. They harbor parasitic fungi. 8. They prevent the proper cul tivation of the soil. 0. They may cause conditions which breed disease. 10. They may poison the soil. 11. They stop drains. 12. They poison animals and man. CARROTS USEFUL FOR STOCK Best Use of Crop Made by Feeding to Cattle Good Results Secured in Feeding to Horses. Dairy cattle can make better use of carrots than any other class of farm live stock, although they can be fed to the horses with good results. It might; also pay to feed limited quan tities of them to the hogs, while they are an excellent feed foV all classes of sheep. Unless the cows ore recelv ing silage they will make good use of 10 or 15 pounds of these roots daily and if receiving silage the addition of four or five pounds of enrrots to the ration will be beneficial. Two or Hired times a week the horses may be given a few pounds each of the sliced roots. They are relished greatly by these ani mals and In limited quantities have a good effect on the bowels. Like most roots and tubers, carrots are too bulky to make an especially good feed for hogs, but a few added to the ration from time to time, if the animals prove to like them, will add to Its pulutnbil ity. Suckling ewes and growing lambs can be given an amount of carrots equaling the grain ration with good results. Given under proper condition to the various classes of farm live stock, carrots provide a valuable though usu ally a rather expensive source of feed. POULTRY WANT WATER FIRST During Winter, First Thing Fowl Does on Leaving Roost Is to Make Search for Drink. In winter, as In summer, the first thing a fowl does when it leaves the roost Is to hunt the water pan, and nearly the last thing before going on the roost is to drink. If the water be Icy cold they will cut the drinking short, but If warm they will drink plenty. If the weather be freezing, several times a day I go around with the boiling tea kettle warming up the water. About three In the afternoon, BS I have for years noticed, the laying hens hunt the shell or lime supply. At any time in the day they pick at charcoal. They will try to break this up themselves, but will eat more of it if you keep It hammered into tiny bits. Exchange.

KEEP FARM EQUIPMENT BUSY Prosperity Begins When Farmer Real. izes He Is Business Man Fac tory Conditions Prevail. The aim of a factory is to keep the equipment busy as many hours In the week and as many weeks in the year as possible. The same needs to be done on the farm. Prosperity begins when the farmer realizes that he Is a business man and that his farm Is a factory. VARIETIES OF LITTLE CORN Flint and Flour Unpopular on Account of Many Small Ears and Difficulty of Harvesting. Flint and flour varieties of corn fre quently produce heavier yields than dent varieties under droughty condi tions. They are unpopular, however, on ac count of the many small ears and the ilifliculty of husking. When harvested by animals this difficulty Is overcome. wm ffrK. -. MM B"aKL.... ftV I Nat i a wns j iloriiculiural PLAN TO MOVE LARGE TREES Best Time for Working Is When Ground Is Frozen Simple Ar rangement Is Illustrated. The arrangement illustrated is very simple, and a big tree may thus be taken up and replanted. First dig around the tree, preferably when the ground is frozen ; don't Injure the roots by going too near; take up a large clump of dirt Place connecting piece of the standards against the tree, to which fasten with ropes, wind ing u cloth around to prevent burking the tree. One or two horses hitched to the rope will easily raise the tree with ball of earth, and swing it onto the waiting stone-boat, on which you may haul it to the planting place. There dig a hole sufficiently big, set the tree, and till and ram the earth securely into place. Then trim the tree branches a little to make up for Moving Large Trees. any roots lost in the moving opera tion. If the situation Is exposed to severe winds, It may be necessary to anchor the tree for several years. This can be done with guy-ropes, being careful to protect the bark from chafing. Also, it may be necessary to water the tree several times during the first one or two summers. Farm Jour nal. MICE RAVAGES IN ORCHARDS Serious Losses Result to Orchardlsts, Farmers and Those Interested In Our Forests. The ravages of short-tailed field mice in many parts of the United States, according to D. R Lantz, as sistant biologist of the department of agriculture, result In serious losses to farmers, orchardlsts and those con cerned with the conservation of our forests, and the problem of controlling the animals Is one of considerable Im portance. Short-tailed field mice are commonly known as meadow mice, pine mice and moles; locally ns bear mice, buck-tailed mice or black mice. Over 50 species and races occur within the United States and nearly 40 other forms have been located in North America. The runs of meadow mice are main ly on the surface of the ground undet grass, leaves, weeds, brush, boards, snow or other sheltering litter. They are hollowed out by the animal's clows and worn hard and smooth by being frequently traversed. The runs lead to shallow burrows where large nests of dead grass furnish winter retreats for the mice. Summer nests are large balls of the same material hidden in the grass and often elevated on small hummocks in the meadows and marshes where the animals abound. The young are brought forth in either underground or surface nests. SECURE FRUIT TREES EARLY Those Intending to Plant Nursery Stock This Winter Should Get Orders in at Once. (By C. W. RAPP, Department of Horti culture, Oklahoma A. ana M. college Stillwater.) Those who expect to plant nursery stock during the present winter should purchase their trees as soon as pos sible. By so doing they are likely to profit, and they cannot lose. Every nurseryman prepares for his custom to the best of bis ability, but he is not always able to gauge his volume of business correctly, or a part of his stock may be unavoidably poor and stunted. In either case he does the best he can for his customers. Everybody gets the best, but the best toward the close of the selling season is frequently far inferior to the best at tbe beginning. For these reusons the prudent buyer will place his order early. Even If he does not wish his stock delivered at once, he will plnce his order subject to call, or to delivery on a certain date. In this way he will receive the ad vantage of an enrly order, and the best trees will be his.

Fulton Mothers Now Treat Children's Colds Externally They Find Vap-O-Rub Better Than In ternal Medicines for Croup and Cold Troubles. Mrs. J. S. Pugh, 510 Market St., and Mrs. Mary Bolton, 105 Ravine St., both of Fulton, Mo., have found, in common with many other Missouri mothers, that it is no longer necessary to dose children with internal medi cines for cold troubles. In the South Vlck's Vap-O-Rub is the standard remedy for these troubles, but it was only last winter that it was Introduced here. Vap-O-Rub was discovered by a North Carolina druggist. He found how to combine Menthol and Camphor with the volatile oils of Thyme, Euca lyptus, Cubebs and Juniper, in salve form, so that when applied to the body, the ingredients are vaporized by the body heat. These vapors are Inhaled with each breath, through the air passages, to the lungs, carrying the medication di rect to the affected parts, and.

Backache In spite of the best care ofle takes of oneself, any part of the human machine is liable to become out of order. The most important organs are the stomach, heart and kidneys. The kidneys are the scavengers and they work day and night in separating the poisons from the blood. Their signals of distress are easily recognized and in clude such symptoms as brckache, de pressions, drowsiness, irritability, bead aches, dizziness, rheumatic twinges, dropsy, gout. "The very best way to restore the kidneys to their normal state of health," says Dr. Pierce, of Buffalo, N. Y., "is to drink plenty of pure water and obtain from your favorite pharmacy a small amount of Anuric, which is dispensed by almost every 0010!." Anuric is inex pensive and should be taken before meals. You will find Anuric more potent than litbia, dissolves uric acid as water dues sugar.
