In Xovoinber, when other garden or
farm work slookens, pay the raspberry
patch a visit ami trim out all the dcnil
ennes These should be biin.ed to do
Htroy any lurking raspberry bororn.
Trim back the Ihe canes to about four
feet This compels tlio plant, when
growth stait.s In the spring, to throw
out numerous side branches nnd thus
Iticreaso their fruiting capacity. Then
mulch tlio rows wllh loaves, If tbey are
nbundant, and weight them down with
a heavy coating of coarse farm ma
nuro, good compost or chicken manure.
The decaying organic materials furnish
humus to the soil, nud humus Is neces
nary to supply the planlH with sulll
cient plnnt food. Tlio rain and soil
inolsturo dissolve (ho materials which
Idauts need, and when the rnspberry
plants take up this moisture they grow
rapidly nnd boar profusely.
llnspberry canes bear about one year
only, but nature provides a new sup
ply of young canes, so that a patch
cured for as above described will boar
nnnually and IbbI many years, and
idnco the raspberry blossoms late It Is
jiractleally guaranteed against injury
from frost. For this reason a rnepberry
crop is almost u certainty.
How to Overcome Them.
A POULTRY RAISER.
I.lcc, head lice In particular, while
tot a disease In themselves, are a fer
tile source of trouble and disease. They
are generally fouud where the chicks
nn hntched by hens, the little fellows
appearing droopy, pale, and Willi some
diarrhea, due to weakness lut the
hen with a good lice killer, spray the
coops wllh dlslurcctant and rub a little
lice ointment on the chick's bond, un
dor the wings atid around the vent.
While not so pievaleut ns sometimes
supposed, "white dlim'n" Is n rent
menace, and here prevention Is the
best remedy. Ilreed from strong,
healthy pnrcnl stock and HVold the
long, scrawny, crow headed ben, for
illsoac Is transmitted through tlio egg.
Keep the Incubator dark, feed good
nourishing food, separate suspected
chicks at once nnd disinfect thorough
ly. If trouble Is expected ito a white
diarrhea remedy In the drinking wnter
for the ttrst ten dajs. It will snve
many chicks, but will Dot cure the dis
ease or save badly luToilcd ones.
Ilowel trouble, due to Improper feed
lug, Is nfloii iiiMhKcm for white dlar
ihoa. Don 1 feed chicks until forty
eight hours old. bul give tine grll and
flesh water from the stall l.ct the
tlrst feed be finely crumbled boiled egg.
brcadcrunilis or a picpHrcd baby chick
food, given dry, or moKten with sweet
or sour milk. Do not. overfeed, but
feed often. Later give a little bit or
lino grains, nrh ns plnhond nuts,
cracked wheat or chick sUe cracked
corn, scattered In the litter to induce ex
ercise. Ilcef scrap should not bo ghen
until chicks are at least a week old
Scald the drinking wsels frequently,
give plenty of greens after the tlrst
live days and keep the chicks excrcis
lug and there will never be any bowel
trouble among the birds
Leg weakness frequently conios from
lack of ororclse Chicks appear lion I thy,
have good appetites, are bright, but
have no use of their leirs (ilve them
every opportunity () exorcise, but do
not allow tlietn to become chilled Mot
torn heat In a brooder will cnu this
trouble Tlio bent should always de
scend on a chick's Imok. never upward.
Lack of bono forming materials In the
food, such as bone or shell menl, slso
causes leg weakness, and every proper
ly compounded chick food contains
these ingredients, .o. If doesn't,
either add them or gel one that does.
To sum nil up. If vigorous, quick
gliiwlng chicks are wanted breed from
only the strongest and best of siook,
disinfect fieelv. clean un rrmiliirlr

FLOWERS AND VINES FOR 55
Planting With an End In View.
It Is well to buy plants nud seeds
only after having In mind n picture of
the garden, Just whcio (he shrubs nnd
vines are to be ami for what purpose
they are planted l.ct us suppose,
then, that with a new house and a
bit of surrounding laud, one is mis

velop one's property with an eje to
isitor, seclusion, shade and beauty, but
Ihe amount to bo spent yearly Is limit
ed to !ffi for seeds nnd plants.
There Is a large choice of perennial
vines for the house, but much depends
upon whether It Is of wood or concrete.
If the former It will be rowlnted from

Are You a Woman?
The Woman's Tonic
itr Four Yean of Diicouraging
Conditions, Mrs. Bullock Gave
Up in Despair. Husband
Came lo Rescue.
Catron, Ky In an interesting letter
ram tliis place, Ars. Nettie Bullock
writes as follows: "1 suffered for four
e ars, witn womanly troubles, and during
Ills time, I could only sit tip for a llltlc
while, and could not walk anywhere at
ill. At times, I would have severe pains
n my left side.
The doctor was called in, and his trcat
nent relieved me for a while, but 1 was
soon confined to my bed aain. After
hat, nothing scctr.zd to do tnc any good.
' I had Rotten so weak I could not stand,
and 1 gave tip in despair.
At last, my husband Rot mc a bottle of
Cardui, the woman's tonic, and I com
menced taking it. Prom the vcty first
doc, I could (ell it was helping mc. I
can now walk two miles without its
tiring me, and am doing all my work."
If you arc alt run down fro'm womanly
troubles, don't give up in despair. Try
Cardui, the woman's tonic. It has helped
more than a million women, in its 50
years of continuous success, and should
surely help you, too. Your druggist has
sold Cardui for years. He knows' what
it will do. Ask hint. He will recom
mend it. Ucgin taking Cardui today.
