what Lydia E. Pink-

for other women and decided to try it.
It surely did wonders for me. I havo
no pains now and I can do my house
work without any trouble at all. I
will always praise your medicine oa I
do not believe there is a doctor that can
do as much good in female weakness,
and you may uso these facts as a testi
monial." Mrs. Lester E. Warner,
R. 1, Box 69, Onnlaska, Wis.
The reason women write such letters
to the Lydia E. Pinkham Medicine Co.
and tell their friends how they are
helped is that Lydia E. Pinkham'a
Vegetable Compound has brought health
ana happiness into their lives. Freed
from their illness they want to pass the
good news along to other suffering
women that they also may be relieved.

(Prepared by tho United States Depart
ment of Agriculture)
At least HO.OOO farmers In tho Unit
ed States own moto? trucks which
they use on their farms. This Is
shown hy n preliminary survey of the
ownership and use of motor trucks
hy farmers undertaken by the olllco
of fnrm management and the bureau
of crop estimates. Tho data secured
by this Inquiry nnswer many questions
which have been asked" repeatedly In
recent years regarding tho extent to
which motor vehicles nre used for
How Figures Were Secured.,
The figures on which totals for tho
nntlon and the several states nre based
were secured from approximately 215,
000 selected crop reporters of the
bureau of crop estimates. These co
operators were asked to report the
nnnip.s and addresses of farmers they
knew who own motor trucks for farm
use. Pleasure cars and trailers for
use with pleasure cars were excluded,
and the reporters were asked not to
take account of trucks which nre used
primarily for general custom hauling,
or on regularly established routes.
This survey can scarcely be con
sidered a complete census, for It Is
probable that In some localities the
crop reporters were not acquainted
with all the truck owners, but It Is
certain that a very lnrge per cent
havo been listed. It Is believed that
In no stnto were less than 75 per
cent of the trucks reported. If not

The producer dealing directly with

shipment of poor produce causes more
dissatisfaction than can be overcome
with several shipments of hlgli-qualltj

United Stntes department of agricul

Farmers should pack produce so thai

Splendid Idea to Plant Permanent

Work Is Disagreeable..
In planning the garden, It Is well to

Everything should be grown In rows,

It Is tho hand work that makes gar
