Any man who has health and strength to work for the success of our boys at the front, has every rea son to be happy and contented, and that is the spirit that moves the American farmer today as he labors in the field to feed our troops and our allies. This is particularly true in the North Carolina farmer, and one of them, C. C. Young, Clayton, N. C, expresses the spirit that is be hind the farmers of this State. Mr. Young has just recovered his health so that he is able to do his bit, and says : "I go to work on my farm every day with a feeling of real joy, be cause I know that my efforts are go ing to count, and that everything -grown in this country this year is going to help our boys "over there. During the last two years I have not been able to get this satisfaction out of my work on account of my health, having suffered greatly with indiges tion and nervousness. I' could not eat a meal without being sick after ward and having heartburn. My fingers also become numb, and my nerves were in bad shape and I was generally miserable. I heard of this new remedy, Peplac, and began tak ing it. The result has been a com plete surprise to me, as it brought me around quickly and I am now in excellent condition. I can eat my meals without disagreeable after ef fects; nervousness has disappeared and I no longer experience that ter rible heartburn that caused me so much suffering. I really feel like a new man, get a lot of joy out ,of living and sing "The Star Spangled Bannr".as J work on my farm." There are a lot of people, farmers and others, who could put more "Pep" and pleasure in their work by taking Peplace at this season of the year. This powerful remedy will put the digestive organs in good condi tion, eliminate poisonous waste flU' ward off spring fever. ;.J:S" This great constrictive tonic is ?old and recommended by all leading drug stores in Hendersonville.

Caterpillars Travel in Companies. The caterpillar, according to natu ralists, knows that there is safety in numbers, and whole companies may be found feeding side by side while keep lng a sharp lookout for their bird en emies; but when a caterpillar Is by himself he scarcely dares move for fear of attracting attention. Even when he is obliged to change his skin he does not venture to leave his old coat lying around. The moment he takes it off he eats it.

A&&itf How The Bayonet Lost a Great Battle BAYONETS, first made at Bayonne, France, whence they get their name, to begin, were almost as dangerous to the army- with them as to its foe. - Fashioned with a solid butt, to be jammed into the muzzle, it rendered a gun useless for firing. The butt was soon changed to a socket, but not before the new f angled bayonet brought the English army to grief at Killiekrankie. The English soldier found the bayonet a poor fii, hard to get into his gun; and when he got it in, hard to get out. When he had to bayonet, he couldn't bayonet; when he hed to shoot, he Wouldn't shoot. The bayonet experiment gave the Sects the battle. To safeguard tire users against the chance of experiment, Goodrich Test Car Fleets put the road test to Goodrich Tire, to make them in word and deed SERVICE VALUE TIRES.
