One of the principal methods of com

SANDY AND CLAY SOIL
The chief vlrtuo of bandy soil,
says the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture, Is that tho
roots of plunts can pass through
It readily ; Its chief fault Is that
It dries out too quickly. Clay
soil holds water well, but It
tends to pack and harden. Both
types of soil need stablo manure
It loosens up clay and helps
sand to hold moisture.
Thousands Have Kidney
Trouble and Never

Judging from reports from dnigRista

has been vnry successful in overcoming

influence of Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root in
poon realized It stands tho highest for
its remarkable record of success.
An( examining physician for ono of the
prominent Life Insurance Companies, in
nn interview on the subject, made the ns
tonishing statement that ono reason why
so many applicants for insurance nro re
jected is becaUBo kidney trouble is so
common to tho American people, nnd tho
large majority of thoso whoso applica
tions nro declined do not even suspect
mat mey nave tlio disease.
Dr. Kilmer's Swamp Root is on sale
