Druggist's Customers Praise
Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root is the
beet seller on the market today in this
locality. I believe it is all that is claimed,
and during my experience of eight years
in. handling it as a kidney, liver and blad
der remedy I have never heard a single
complaint and know that it has produced
very beneficial results in many cases, ac
cording to the reports of my customers
who praise it highly.
Very truly yours,

YES! LIFT A CORN
OFF WITHOUT PAIN!
Cincinnati man tells how to dry
up a corn or callus so It lifts
off with fingers.
You corn-pestered men and women
need suffer no longer. Wear the shoes
that nearly killed you before, says this
Cincinnati authority, because n few
drops of freezono applied directly on a
tender, aching corn or callus, stops
soreness at once and soon the corn or
hardened callus loosens so It can be
lifted off, root and nil, without pain.
A 6mall bottle of freezone costs very
llttlo at any drug store, but will posi
tively take off every hard or soft corn
or callus. This should bo tried, as It
(s Inexpensive and Is said not to Irri
tate tho surrounding skin.
If your druggist hasn't any freezone
tell him to get n small bottlo for you
from bis wholesale drug house. adv,

BEES SOMETIMES GET LOST
Honey Gatherers Should Not Be Giv
en Frtdom Until There Is Plenty
of Pollen Available.
(By U V. FRANCH, Minnesota Kspcrl
Bees sometimes get lost. They do
so on being turned out In the spring
If they have to go far In search of
pollen. Therefore, bees should not be
given their freedom until there Is
plenty of pollen available on willows
and soft maples close by.
If there Is no pollen available out
side of tho hives in April, or the
weather Is too bad for the bees to go
out, the keeper should provide comics
Among other things suggested by
Mr. Franco for bees Just given their
freedom aro these:
Clean water In a warm nook In tho
Food enough to Inst until May 20 In
the form of sugar, sirup or combs of
honey saved from the previous year.
Protection against cold weather un
til Mny 15 or 20 by wrapping each
hive with thicknesses of heavy wrap
ping or building paper.
Prevention of robbing by reducing
size of entrances.
GROUND LIMESTONE IS BEST
Deserving of Consideration by Farm
ers Contemplating Liming Soil
Use In Any Quantity.
Ground llmestono deserves tho
earnest consideration of those who
contemplate liming the soli. A natu
ral product, It can bo used In any
quantity without danger of Injury to
the soil. Experiments have shown
that two tons of limestone tire as effi
cient as one ton of quicklime, provid
ed tho former Is finely ground. Lime
stone Is considered finely ground when
1)5 per cent of It will puss through n
sieve having 100 meshes to the Inch.
When two tons of limestone can be
purchased nnd spread on the soil at
an equal or less cost than one ton of
quicklime or 11,050 pounds of hydrated
lime, the limestone should be used.
Limestone slftlngs sometimes can be
secured. Although rather coarse,
there la enough fine material present
to justify their use, provided they can
be purchased at a price which will
mnko It practical to use four or live
tons per acre.
WHERE DRAINAGE IS NEEDED
Jse Explosives to Break Through and
Open Up Hard Layer Remedy
Is Rather Modern One.
Whether It be a bard limestone layer
or a layer of luirdpan, soils that have
an Impervious stratum closely under
lying them are hard to drain by any
of the old-time methods. Suppose
there is a top soil, underlain by a fair
ly open llmestono shale, and this In
turn underlain by a bard llmestono
A Drainage Method.
through which surface water cannot
pass. Some kind of drainage Is nec
essary where water from surfuco
springs Is Uowlng over It The remedy
In such cases Is rather a modern one.
Use explosives to break through ami
open up the hard layer, whether this
be stone or Impervious clay of a hard
pan nature. Ripping up the soil to a
depth of a few feet, depending upon
the depth of the layer, will work a
cure for this condition.
GET RID OF CABBAGE WORMS
Sorlnkle Paris Green, Mixed With
Flour, Slaked Lime or Dry Road
Dust Over Plants.
If the green cabbage worms are
bothering tho cabbages which were set
out las: fall, sprinkle some parls green
mixed with some flour, slaked lime or
dry road dust all over the plants. Uso
one ounce to five pounds of the lime
or other mixture. Don't bo afraid to
use this poison, as there Is no danger
of Its hurting you when eating tho cab
bage. And, too, the cabbage heads from
the center mid the outside leaves are
lnvurlably pulled off before using.
GOATS ADAPTED TO GRAZING
Economical Producers Under Ordinary
Farm Conditions Thrive on
Anporn goats are economical pro
ducers under anything like ordinary
farm conditions. They ore well adapt
ed to grazing and can be maintained
on rather thin pasture. Yet this Is

MUFFLING GAS ENGINE
Good Plan to Exhaust Into Buried
Point to Be Observed Is Not to Creatf
Back Pressure Which Will Ma
terlally Decrease Power
In response to n query os to tho
best plan to deaden the scund from ti
gasoline engine In tho cellar, F. W.
Ives of the Ohio Stnto university
makes the following reply:
To deaden the exhaust of a gasollno
engine, some sort of it mutller must
be used. The point to bo observed Is
not to create back pressure which will
materially decrease the power of tho
engine. An effective way to mullle
the engine In question would be to
exhaust Into a burled expansion cham
ber which Is connected to the outside.
To Muffle an Engine.
The accompanying sketch will give
the render a clear Idea how to con
struct the chamber cheaply.
If It is not practical to go through
the bottom of tho wall as Indicated,
the exhaust plpo could be led to the
top of tho expansion chamber. With
this arrangement the chamber would
not need to be so deep nnd would not
bo so effective because of the long plpu
from the engine. If the cellar drain
Is Inadequate, the latter scheme would
be more practical to Install.

CARING FOR FEET OF SHEEP
Trimming Should Be Done at Least
Once a Year Operation May Be
Done at Shearing Time.
The feet of Bhcep should bo trimmed
ut leust once a year and as much oft
ener as Is necessary, asserts A. M. Pat-
crson, Instructor In animal husbandry
In tho Kansas Stato Agricultural col
lege. "Tho hoof grows rapidly and If tho
sheep aro not traveling over rough
ground the feet, will grow faster than
they wear," said Mr. Paterson. "Tho
trimming may bo done at shearing
time, and should bo dono from the tin
der side with tho uso of a hoof knife
or a sharp pocket knife."
N0NACID SOIL FOR ALFALFA
Highly Essential In Any Case That
Lund Be Well Supplied With De
caying Vegetable Matter.
Alfalfa requires lu the Hast a deep,
fertile, well-drained, nonncld soil.
Loam soils with open subsoils aro best
for alfalfa, but It may bo grown on
soils of almost any texture, from sandy
or gravelly loiuns to heavy clays. Tho
proportion of failures, however, Is apt
to bo considerable on deep, porous
sands or sands underlain by gravel. It
Is highly essential lu tiny caso that
tho soil bo well supplied with decaying
vegetable matter and plant food.
ALFALFA HAY IS PREFERRED
Crop Is Somewhat Superior to Either
Cowpeas or Clover Yield Per
Acre Is Greater.
As n buy crop 'alfalfa Is to bo pre
ferred to red clover or cowpea bay
wherever It can bo successfully pro
duced. It Is somewhat superior to el
ther clover or cowpeas In feeding
value, while under favorable condl
tlons the number of crops alfalfa pro
duces in one season makes tho total
yield per aero greater.
MUTTON IS EXCELLENT MEAT

Lambs should bo raised cheaply
where one Is at all prepared and wIkto
he understands the animals. Mutton
Is excellent meat and there arc no
good reasons why It should not bo more
