Extraordinary Curat! to
iPower of Lydia E. Pink
foam's Vegetable Compound.
Philadelphia, Pa. - ' I want to lot you
know what good Lydia E. Pinkham'a
pound has dono mo.
I had organic trou
bles and am going
through the Chanco
of Life. I was taken
with a pain in my
side and a bad head
ache. I could not
lie down, could not
cat or sleep. I Buf
terrible and the doc
tor's medicine did
sno no good at all my pains got worso
instead of better. I began taking tho
Vegetable Compound and felt a change)
from the first. Now I feel fino and ad
vise any one going through tho Change?
of Life to try it, for it cured mo after I
had given up all hopes of getting better.
You can publish this and I will tell
any one who writes to mo the good
it has dono me." Mrs. Margaret
Danz, 743 N. 25th Street, Phila., Pa.
It hardly seems possible that there ia
-a woman in this country who will con
tinue to suffer without giving Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound a trial
after all tho evidence that is continually
foeing published, proving beyond contra
diction that this grand old medicine has
relieved more suffering among women
than any other medicine in tho world.
Prayed for Cure
Finds it After 10 Years
Food Would Sour and Boil
Teeth Like Chalk
Mr. Herbert M. Gessner writes from hia
iiorae in Berlin, N. II.:
I had stomach trouble over ten years:
fcept getting worse. I tried everything for
relief but it came back worso than ever,
Last fall I got awfully bad; could only cat
light loaf bread and tea. In January I got
ao bad that what I would eat would sour
and boil; my teeth would bo like chalk.
1 suffered terribly. I prayed every day for
something to cure me. One day I read
about EATONIC and told my wife to get
me a box at the drug store as I was going
to work at 4 p. m. I took one-third of it
nd began to feel relief: when it was
three-fourths gone, I felt fine and when it
was used up I had no pains. Wife got me
another box but I have felt the pain but
twice. I used five tablets out of the new
box and I have no more stomach trouble.
How I write to tell you how thankful I
am that I heard of EATONIC. I feel like
a new man; I eat what I like, drink plenty
of wnter. and it never hurts me at all.

UNLEDGERED INCOME IS BIG
Three Essentials, Food, Fuel and Shel
ter Do Not Appear on Farmer's
Tho farmer, unlike most men In oth
er lines of work, has two kinds' of In
come, one his regular cash Income, the
other an income that Is almost never
measured In dollars and cents.
Food, fuel, and shelter nre three es
sentials of life that go lo make up the
part of the farmer's balance sheet.
These are the things that lend safety
and stability to farm life; that en
able the fanner to tide over bad yearn
and hard times that would bo ruinous
If he had to pay cash for everything
that he gets. In tho case of the man
on the sninll farm, this unledgered In
come Is often of as great Importance
to the farm family as the cash ln

THRIFTY CONDITION OF SOWS
Animals Should Not Be Forced to Get
Along on Little or Nothing and
Raise Big Litters.
Whnt sows demand Is to be kept In
strong, thrifty oondltlon as a result of
good feed and management If they are
going to produco uniformly large lit
ters from year to year. Although they
will take care of themselves about
the best of any animal on tho farm, If
given the chance, they should not ho
forced to get along on little or noth
ing and at tho same time ho expected
to raise large Utters.
CLEAN BEDDING IS HELPFUL
Filthy Floor In Hen House Always
Soils Eggs Because Fowls Carry
Dirt Into Nests.
Clean bedding on the floor of the
henhouse helps to keep the eggs clean
In the nest. A tllthy tloor always soils
tho nests because the hens carry tho
dirt Into tho nests when luylng und
tft it on the eggs.
LOSSES IN SPINACH
Careful Handling and Packing
Are Most Essential.
Oecay and Deterioration In Transit
Caused by Development of Slimy
Soft Rot Can Be Checked by
Losses In spinach shipments enn bo
givatly reduced by careful handling In
harvesting and packing and by effec
tive refrigeration In transit, according
to specialists In the bureau of mar
kets, United Stntes department of ag
riculture, who havo been Investigating
Iteports show thnt some of the nrln-
clpat spinach shipping sections of tho
country are suffering considerable
loss from decay and deterioration In
transit cnused by the development of
slimy rot. This decay develops rap
idly In transit when temperature con
ditions nre favorable, say tho bureau
men. It starts at places where the
leaves have been bruised or wounded
and It very frequently follows attacks
of blight or other Held diseases. Other
causes of deterioration In trnnstt nre
vellowlng and wilting of the lenves.
Prompt handling and shipment at n
low temperature largely reduce losses
from these cnuses.
That shipments of spinach nriive In
better condition when crushed Ice Is
used in each package than without
the Ire Is shown by test shipments
made from Austin, Tex., by the bu
reau of nmrkets during tho Inst two
years. Where Ice was used In these
shipments, practically no soft rot had
developed when the spinach was re
moved from the car, while comparable
shipments without Ice had developed
8.0 per cent. Three dnys later the
Iced spinach had developed only 11.0
per cent of soft rot while thnt shipped
without Ice had developed 20.8 per
cent. These shipments were made In
freight or express refrigerator cars,
the hunkers of which were Iced In the
When barrels are used the Investi
gators found that several layers of
crushed Ice scattered through the bar
rel are needed, a large layer being
placed on top of the spinach next to
the barrel bend. Holes bored In tho
bottom of the barrel provide drainage.
Shipments In baskets or crates carry
best with a layer of crushed Ice In the
center of the container and another
layer on top of the spinach Just under
Test shipments made to determine
the effect of wnshlng spinach before
shipment showed that washing has
an unfavorable effect on Its keeping
qualities. On removal from tho car
at destination, unwashed spinach
showed practically no soft rot while
washed spinach showed B.G per cent
Three days later tho washed spinach
had developed 21.8 per cent while the
unwashed had developed only 0.7 per
LARGE PROFIT IN SPRAYING
Increase of 69 Bushels Per Acre Se
cured In Demonstration In
Several potato-spraying demonstra
tions have been conducted by furm
bureau members In Carbon County,
Pa. One demonstration, In which the
cost of spraying was $15.00 an acre,
gave the following results: Sprayed,
252 bushels per acre; unsprayed,
182 bushels per acre, an lncrense
per acre of OOVi bushels. With po
tatoes worth $l.f0 per bushel, the net
profit wns $88.25 per acre. United

FUEL SAVED BY GOOD ROADS
Wear and Tear on Trucks and Amount
of Gasoline Consumed Shown In
Recent Ohio Test.
A test conducted in Ohio recently
to determine the snvlng In gasoline
from running over a good road ns com
pared with gas consumption over bad
nnd medium-grade ronds, disclosed n
surprising difference. Five new arm
standard "A" trucks with seven
different types of road service, showed
n gain of six miles per gallon of fuel
between the best nnd worst types of
roads. All the trucks were empty dur
ing the test.
The trucks loaded showed that the
poor road took seven times as much
gasoline per mile as the good one.
The test results showed an nverage
of 5.78 miles per gallon over a dirt
road In good condition. 7.10 over fair
gravel. 0.110 over good gravel, about
the same over fair bituminous macad
am and good brick roads, 11.14 over
extra smooth brick and 11.7S over good
Tho snvlng to the motoring public
In gasoline nlone would amount to
millions of dollars nnnunlly. Perhaps
equal lo this would be the saving In
llres, which Is considered as Important
nn Item of car upkeep as Is gasoline.
Calculating the snvlng In wear and
tear on the mechanism of cars and
trucks nnd also the Item of time lost
by poor roads, adequate highways are
undoubtedly a sane Investment.
CULVERT IS EASILY CLEANED
Much Trouble Obviated by Invention
of Grate or Iron Bars, Resting
Often culverts under roads and
pntlis become clogged with debris and
frequently give trouble because they
cannot he readily cleaned. The de
vice Illustrated obviates all this dlfll
culty. It consists of a grate of Iron
bars supported by crosspleces which
rest In notches or upon the surface
of stonework or concrete, says Ameri
can Agriculturist. Tho bars and tho
crosspleces should be of heavy enough
material to support any load that will
bo driven across the grating.

was made Is In a footpath, so the bars

were only 1V Inches wide and n
quarter of an Inch thick. Tho cross'
pieces are of the snino material, bent
at the ends and riveted to the bars.
All that Is necessary to clean such a
culvert Is to lift the grating and do the
work with a spade or a hoe.

they are now able to enjoy.
Why Some Dealers Sell
Private Brand jloofing
Any responsible dealer can sell Certain
teed, but some dealers prefer to sell pri
vate brands. Why? Because compe
tition is not possible nobody else has
their private brand for sale nothing
regulates in any way the profit that
they can take on a private brand if
you'll buy it.
If they sell Certain-teed they must limit
their margin of profit to a reasonable
figure. They get enough, but they
can't play the hog. Every reputable
dealer has a free right to buy and sell it
at fair prices, ;
Private Brands Are a
Where's the percentage for you in pri
vate brands anyway? You don't know
what they will do for you. You don't
know whether the little mills that made
them know how to make good roofing
or not. And even roofing experts can't
tell much about roofing by just looking
But you know the Certain-teed repu
tation for high-quality products and for
fair dealing! You know that Certain
teed Roofing is guaranteed.
It's as easy as two and two. When you
buy Certain-teed you know what you
are getting. When you buy some pri
vate brand you don't.
And don't forget that any responsible
dealer can get Certain-teed for you
quickly from a nearby Certain-teed
warehouse or jobber. He gets it when
he wants it and he gets what he wants.
He can afford to sell you at a fair price.

Beware of the dealer who tells you he
has Certain-teed, but tries to sell you
a private brand. He probably wants
a bigger profit.
