.Little Girl's Obstinate Case of Eczema
Mother Says : "Cuticura Rem
edies a Household Standby. "
"Last year , after having nay little
girl treated by a very prominent physician -
-cian for an obstinate case of eczema , I
resorted to the Cuticura Remedies , and
was so well pleased with the almost
instantaneous relief afforded that we
discarded the physician's prescription
and relied entirely on the Cuticura
Soap , Cuticura Ointment , and Cuticura
Pills. When we commenced with the
Cuticura Remedies her feet and limbs
were covered with running sores. In
about six weeks we had her complete
ly well , and there has been no recur
rence of the trouble. We find that the
Cuticura Remedies are a valuable
household standby , living as we do
twelve miles from a doctor , and where
it costs from twenty to twenty-five
dollars to come up on the mountain.

Sowing : Spinach.
Early spinach Is seeded In the fall.
The ground should be plowed and made
fine , plenty of well-rotted manure ap
plied , and the seed sown In rows about
16 inches apart , which should be done
with a seed drill having a small roller
to cover end press the earth on the
seeds , the depth of planting the seeds
being about half an Inch. The seed
should be sown before cold weather
sets in. When the plants are up let
thorn grow until \the \ ground Is frozen ,
land then cover with straw , which
should be removed early in the spring.
[ Spinach Is a very hardy plant and la
seldom injured by cold.

, Lime IViirojjen.
i Every gardener likes to use a slliu-
' ulatlng fertilizer to hurry the crop. *
along. For this purpose nitrate of soda
and sulphate of ammonia are most frequently - -
quently employed. Nitrogen Is the ele
ment chiefly sought and all known
means of obtaining it cheaply have
been tested. Lately much interest hajs
been shown in limo nitrogen or calcium
cyanamid. The results of recent experi
ments with this fertilizer indicate a
high value for it. In some tests it has
shown only 80 per cent of the effec
tiveness of nitrate of sodn while In
other tests it proved superior.
Lime nitrogen soeins to be harmful
if placed in direct contact with tha
seeds or roots of plants. It should pi'o-
ferably be mixed with the soil and ap
plied from eight to fourteen days be
fore seeding. It will then greatly has
ten the growth and maturity of gar
den plants. Some gardeners have
found that it is best to mix the lime
nitrogen with the soil five to ten inches
below the surface. Tha best results
' have been obtained by mixing the fer
tilizer with twice Its weight of dry
soil before applying. Limo nitrogen
should not be applied at a greater rate
than 125 to 270 pounds per acre.

tribution to man's wealth. They are
naturally spread all over the lawns

after they have accomplished that mis
sion they are worked over Into a com

a self-feeding box inwhich can be put

two partitions put in before cutting
out the beveled section would make

easiest possible way to make a self-

Cold Storage for Farmers.
Putting first-class apples In cold stor
age for sale In late winter or early
spring , is usually very profitable , says
Farming. Other fruit and farm pro
ducts may also be stored to advantage.
The expense of a cold storage plant
precludes Its use by most fruit grow
ers. Co-operation among farmers will
sometimes be possible along this line.
Granges and other farmers' organiza
tions may do educational and practical
work also. But available for every
farmer are the refrigerator plants newfound
found in almost every city. Rooms or
space may be rented as one needs. Gen
erally it Is best to store In tb.8 city .
where it is intended to sell , that the
produce may be on the ground in case
of an advantageous market Many a
grower of fine fruit -would be dollars
ahead by availing himself of cold stor
age facilities.

Two Grateful Letters from Women Who Avoided
Serious Operations. Many Women Suffering
from Like Conditions WiSi Be Interested.
When a physician tells a woman , suf
fering1 from female trouble , that an
operation is necessary it , of course ,
frightens her.
The very thought of the operating1
table and the knife strikes terror to
her heart. As one woman expressed
it , when told by her physician that she
must undergo an operation , she felt
that her death knell had sounded.
Our hospitals are full of women
who are there for just such operations !
It is quite true that these troubles
may reach a stage where an operation
is the only resource , but such cases are
much rarer than is generally supposed ,
because a great many women have
been cured by Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound after the doctors
had said an operation must be per
formed. In fact , up to the point where
the knife must be used to secure instant
relief , this medicine is certain to help.
The strongest and most grateful
statements possible to make come from
women who , by taking Lydia E. Pink-
ham's Vegetable Compound , have
escaped serious operations.
Margrite Ryan , Treasurer of St.
Andrew's Society , Indianapolis , Ind. ,
writes of her cure as follows :
Dear Mrs. Pinkham :
" I cannot find words to express my thanks
for the good Lydia E. Pinkham's "Vegetable
Compound did me. The doctor said I could
not get well unless I had an operation for
the trouble from which I suffered. I know I
could not stand the strain of an operation and
made up my mind I would bo an invalid for
life. Hearing how Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound had saved other-women
from serious operations I decided to try it ,
and in less than four months Irts entirely
cured ; and words fail to esprcsc my thank
fulness. "
Miss Margret Merkley , of 275 3d
Street , Milwaukee , Wis."writes :
Dear Mrs. Pinkham :
"Loss of strength , extreme nervousness ,
severe shooting pains through the pelvic
organs , cramps , bearing-down pains , and an
irritable disposition compelled mo to seek
medical advice. The doctor , nftor making
an examination , said that I had a serious
female troubleand ulceration. and advised an-
operation as my only hope. To this I strongly
objected and I decided as a last resort to try
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
"To my surprise the ulceration healed , all
the bad symptoms disappeared , and I ainonce
more strong , vigorous and v/ell ; and I can
not express my thanks for what it has done
forme. "
Serious feminine troubles are steadi
ly on the increase among women and
before submitting to an operation
every , woman should try Lydia E.
Piukham's Vegetable Compound , and
write Mrs. Pinkham at Lynn , Mass ,
for advice.
For thirty years Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound has been curing
the worst forms of female complaints ,
all functional troubles , inflammation ,
ulceration , falling and displacement ,
weakness , irregularities , indigestion
and nervous prostration. Any woman ,
who could read the many grateful
letters on file in Mrs. Pinkham's office
would be convinced of the efficiency of
her advice and Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound.
