Mrs. D. Arnold , President German
Woman's Club , Grand Pacific Hotel , Los
Angeles , CaL , Relieved of a Tumor by'
Lyclia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
" DEAR MRS. PINKHAM : I suffered four years ago with a tumor
in my womb , and the doctors declared I must go to the hospital and un
dergo an operation , which I dreaded very much and hesitated to submit.
" My husband consulted an old friend who had studied medicine ,
although he was not a practising physician ; and he said he believed
that ! Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound would cure
me. That same day I took my first dose , and I kept it up faithfully
until twelve bottles had been used , and not only did the tumor dis :
appear , but my general health was very much improved and I had
not felt so well since I was a young woman.
" As I have suffered no relapse since , and as I took no other med
icine , I am sure that your Compound restored my health and I believe
saved my life. " MRS. D. ARNOLD.

Handy New Barrel.
For farmers who preserve and ox-
port fruit , as well as for growers , but
ter merchants , sea captains anil many'
t > thers. a new barrel has much interest , j
In order to ascertain the condition of i
fruit or provisions which are stored in j
an ordinary barrel a man must cither
empty the barrel or , at any rate , re
move the greater portion of its con
tents. If he uses this new barrel , how
ever , all this trouble will be unneces
sary , since one of its staves is mov
able and whenever he desires to inspect
the contents of the barrel all he need
do is to move this stave to one side.
After he has satisfied himself that
the contents arc in ir > od condition he j
can replace tmstave , and it will < be i
held firmly in proper position by the i
Another advantage is that in this
way fresh air can at any time be ad
mitted to all parts of the barrel , and
tliiit this will prove a boon in the case
of * fruit and provisions is undoubted.
A frooil Seed Bed.
The importance of having land made
well pulverized and mellow before
seeds are sown or planted in it is not
all in the fact that the roots penetrate
it better when so than when it is in
coarse lumps , and thus find more eas-
Hy : the plant food that is in it , though
this is an important consideration , but
It is true that the seed germinates more P
rapidly after two or three days , and d
with some varieties a week , before it
conies up in soil that is but half work- -
ed. in which , by the way , much see * !
may fail to germinate at all. The soil
'that is fine and mellow tits closely ,
around the seed and gives a supply of j
moisture to all parts alike. It excludes j
the drying air. and yet it is more even-
ly warmed by a bright sun , which helps
to draw up moisture from below by
capillary attraction. An extra Jay
spent in putting a Held in good c.ondi- j
tion before the seed is put in will not
only hasten the growth and maturity
of the crop , but will increase its
Inexpensive Corn Marker.
Many of the expensive corn markers
are quite complicated , hence farmery

old methods. The one shown in the

considerable area to put into corn

Bran and Shorts. egl
When we speak of shorts for stock 1
poultry feeding we mean that which poi
entitled to the name. We do not kei
lean bran that has been reground to I
lake It finer , and especially would we bU
void it if we thought that the cause COf
the regrinding was that the bran ed
ad been wet , soured and caked up. A fia
few years ago a neighbor complained
to us that his cows were not giving
their usual amount of milk , and worn
growing lean , and some of them Aere
scouring badly. The ration he was feed
ing seemed to be in the right propor-
lions , and his ensilage was good. Aftei
examining all else , we asked to see UK
shorts , which he fed quite liberally.
We saw it , we sinelled of it , and then
we tasted of it Although it looked
and smelled all right , the table was
enough to reveal that it was as soui
as any pickle. All the good qualities
had been destroyed by overheating
when damp , and while the regrliullny
had reduced the caked lumps and talc-
en away the sour smell , it had not re
stored the feeding value. And of thai
it probably never had any more thaii

Feeder for Calvea or Colts.
About the biggest nuisance on tin
farm is the young calf or colt that
won't learn to drink milk from a pail
until after repeated
efforts have almost
made the farmer
give up in disgust ,
but , as this is the
way these animals
usually behave , the
labor saving ar
below will find ready approval among
those whose duty it is to care for the > 2
animals. All that it is necessary to do
with this apparatus is to attach one
end to a fence , hang the pail in the cen
ter and attach the calf to the outer end
for a few feedings , and after that Ji j
will see to the attaching himself , as far
as his end is concerned. It is.not nat
ural for a calf to drink at the age they
are usually compelled to begin , and oiitj
of the results is that when the animal
does learn to drink , it swallows the
milk so rapidly that an attack of in
digestion is sure to follow.
A desire is sometimes expressed bj
poultry keepers for a box for fumigat
ing fowls. The larger poultry supply
houses have such in stock and one ia
shown herewith. The essentials are a
tight box with a hole so arranged thai
the bird's head is outside the box. The
space around the bird's neck must be
packed to prevent escape of smoke.
During the operation the legs are tied
to keep the fowl steady. The tobacco
stems or similar material must be so
placed as to avoid risk of fire oricci -
dent. A smoking of this kind should
last three or four hours , and is the best
