Don't Neglect Kidneys
Swamp-Root, Dr. Kilmer's Prescrip
tion, Overcomes Kidney Trouble
It Is now conceded by physicians that
the kidneys should have more attention
as they control the other organs to a re
rnarkable degree and do a tremendous
amount of work in removing the poisons
and waste matter from the system by
filtering the blood.
The kidneys should receive some as
eistance when needed. We take lea's ex
ercise, drink less water and often eat
more rich, heavy food, thereby forcing
the kidneys to do mora work than nature
intended. Evidence of kidney trouble,
such as lamo back, annoying bladder
troubles, smarting or burning, brick
dust or sediment, sallow complexion,
rheumatism, maybe weak or irregular
heart action, warns you that your kid
neys require help immediately to avoid
more serious trouble.
An ideal herbal compound that has had
most remarkable success as a kidney and
bladder remedy is Dr. Kilmer's Swamp
Boot. There is nothing else like it. It
is Dr. Kilmer's prescription used in pri
vate practice and it is sure to benefit you.
Oet a bottle from your druggist.
However, if you wish first to test this
great preparation send ten cents to Dr.
Kilmer & Co.. Binghamton. N. Y for a
sample bottle. When writing be sure and

RAISING CALVES FOR PROFIT
Wisconsin Specialist Qlvea Interesting
Hlrtts About Building Up Money
O. O. Humphrey, a Wisconsin dairy
spcclnllst, gives the following facta
about building up a profit-producing
dairy from homeri-alsed calves:
Use only a good, purebred sire, take
good care of the cows, nnd keep the
calves "coming" right from birth.
Dry tho mother oft six weeks be
fore date of calving, otherwise tho
calf may be weak or undersized.
Give the mother n clean, comfort
able box stall n few days before calv
ing, where she may be quiet.
Leave the calf with its mother tho
first two to four days, so It may get
tho colostrum, or "first milk."
From then until four weeks old, feed
from two to five pounds of Its mother's
Growing Into Money.
milk three times' a day. After
weeks give n little choice hay.
If the calf seems unthrifty or weak,
feed four times a day aud give slight
ly less at a time.
Overfeeding Is more dangerous than
underfeeding. Keep tho palls clean nnd
give milk warm, as nearly as possi
ble the temperature of freshly drawn
Beginning tho fifth week, gradually
substitute skim milk for the wholo
milk. About the eighth week Increase
the amount from six to ten pounds
Do not feed the froth which rises
In separator skim milk, as It Is likely
to cause Indigestion, bloat and scours.
COWS FRESHENED IN AUTUMN
Calves Are Usually Strong and Vigor
ous Nothing to Check Growth
Butter Fat Higher.
Ono tiling bf great Importance to the
dairyman Is the time to havo tho cows
come fresh. Cows that freshon dur
ing the fall months come in at a time
when wo nre not quite so busy and
can look after them nnd give them
proper care and attention.
Tho calves are usuully strong and
vigorous, and as fly time Is practically
over there is nothing to materially
check their growth.
Fall-freshened cows no doubt re
quire more attention than those com
ing fresh during the spring months,
but as wo usually havo the Bpare
tlmo at this particular period of the
year, tho time In caring for them,
feeding, etc., is profitably spent.
Butterfat is usually higher during
the fall and winter, nnd of course this
makes the business protltablo If we
have plenty of good feed and of the
right sort for producing butterfat.
There are many other good points
in favor of having tho cows come fresh
during tho fall months.
IMPORTANT TO MILK CLEANLY
If Not Done Cow Will Soon Have
Swollen Udder Which May Result
In Her Ruination.
It Is lmportunt that cows bo
milked clean. There Is a loss In two
ways In not milking them clean. Not
only does tho owner lose tho milk, but
tho cow will Boon have a swollen ud
der, which may result In tho loss of
a quarter or ruin tho whole cow, aB far
as milking is concerned
And, beside, If a cow testing 4
per cent butterfat bo milked and tho
first fourth of tho milk bo tested, It
will probably only test about 2 per
cent, and it may even be a little lower.
The second fourth will test be
tween 3 and 4 per cent and keep on
Increasing, and the very last milk, or
Btrlpplngs, sometime tests ns high aB
12 and even 15 per cent. Hence, the
Importance of getting tho strlppings.
RIGHT PASTURE FOR CALVES
Clean, Green, Shinty Place Is Best for
Young Anlma.'s Guard Against
A clean, green, shady pasture is
good for llttlo calves. Do not put
them into tho hog pasture. The lat
ter usuully has bare, dusty places In
it. Tho wallow and tho pig feeding
troughs attract myriads of flics. Theso
pester the little calves too much.

and havo a better flavor. For all dishes
where pumpkin Is used the first process
is tho same. Cook It until It Is dry
nnd brown, this develops tho flavor.
Somo cut It In pieces nnd nfter remov
ing tho seeds nnd fiber bake it until
it Is soft nnd can be scooped out of
the shell. WliPther boiled, steamed or
baked It should bo thoroughly done,
finely mashed and sifted through a
sieve. For tho ordinary tasto one cup
ful of pumpkin Is used to n pint of
milk, two eggs, a tcaspoonful of ginger,
a few drops of lemon extract, a tea-
spoonful of salt, and sugar to make of
