" For eight years 1 suffered from the
most severe form of female troubles and
was told that an operation was my only
hope of recovery. I wrote Mrs. Pinkham
for advice , and took L/ydia E. Pinkham's

my life and made me a well woman. ' '
Mrs. Arthur R Douse , of Church

know what Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege

suffered from female troubles , and last

objected , and urged me to try Lydia
E. Piukham's Vegetable Compound ,
and to-day I am weU and strong. "
For thirty years Lydia E. Pink-
ham's Vegetable Compound , made
from roots and herbs , has been the
standard remedy for female ills ,
and has positively cured thousands of
women who have been troubled with
displacements , inflammation , uleera-

ProHpers at Peimit FurniinsT.
Seven years ago Mrs. Jennie R. Cass
found herself confronted with the prob
lem of bringing up and educating six
children on fifty acres of poor land in
North Carolina. Besides her land and
little house she possessed an aged
horse and a mule , one cow , twenty-two
chickens and three razor-back hogs.
Slie decided to raise peanuts and be
gan reading everything on the subject
she could procure. She was
enough to know her soil was poor and
she began a system of rotation of crops ,
gradually increasing her acreage of pea
nuts. Now she has twenty-live devoted
to them.
'During ' the seven years she has not
only succeeded in keeping her children

An Expert Farmer.
An exchange says a young man asks ,
"What would you advise a young man
raised on a farm who cannot stand the
dust of haying and thrashing and is
most too light to do heavy farm work
to do ? "
Gardening , floriculture , poultry rais
ing , civil engineering all are good. If
he is built for an expert , there are
andscape gardening. Inside decorating
and a number of other good occupations
open to him.
The young man who Is built for an
expert that is. one who is naturally
bright , careful and painstaking will
succeed in any of the above or in almost -
most any other occupation. ITe will
have to learn the * business lie selects ,
lie cannot learn any of them from a

practical instructor who can show him ,

The Dairy COTT'M Product.
The products of the dairy cow are
fourfold. The first and chief product
is , naturally , the milk which she se
cretes , and which ia used as milk , or
for butter or cheese making. The second
end product is calves which she bears ,
and which may be of more or less
value. Third , the carcass of beef which
she will yield when she is no longer
useful for the production of milk
should be taken into account. Lastly ,
the manure she produces is of consid
erable value.
We may call tile milk the main prod
uct and the calves , beef and manure
the by-prodwcts of the dairy cow. It
has been asserted that the milk product
is the only thing that should be taken
into consideration in estimating the
value of the dairy cow , and that the
calves and beef should be entirely ig
nored by a successful dairyman , but
in these days of strong competition it
is not possible to ignore the byproducts
ucts , and in any scheme of successful
dairying the calves and.beef at least
should ; be taken into consideration.
This does not mean that in any case
milk producing qualities arc to he
sacrificed for the sake of the by-prod
It simply means that of two animals
of equal value for the production of
milk the one that will give the greater
return in production of calves and
value of carcass is more profitable.
Agricultural Epitomist. Alfalfa.
The hay crop is one of the principal
products of the farm. In 100G there
ucre raised 57,145,9o9 tons of hay ,
valued at SSOLV CO.CTl , while the wheat
crop the same year had a value of
? 490,3S2,7GO. Hay enters largely into
the live stock industry and is a lead
ing commercial product in supplying
the consumption of horses in cities.
Hay maintains a parity of value with
corn ami oats for feeding operations
and is usually fed in the proportions
of one and a half to two pounds to a
hundred pounds live weight of animals.
Hay is regarded as roughage and is
necessary in animal husbandry to
equalize fie concentrated nutriments of
Alfalfa is one of the richest legumes
and is economical for its large yields
and feeding qualities. The cultivation
of alfalfa marks a new era in agri
culture. It leads clover in the yield
per aero and also in its nutrient prop
erties. It yields two to four crops per
season and should IK ? more extensively
cultivated in sections devoted to ani
mal industry. It loves sunshine and
takes vast quantities of nitrogen from
th atmosphere and deposits it in the
sell to fertilize future crops.
Alfalfa is rich in protein , which
makes heavy bone and strong muscles.
It is relishe < l alike by horses , cattle.
sheep , hogs- and poultry , and when fed
to stock in the feed lots reduces the
train ration and the expense of finish-
Tig feeders for market. It Is partic
ularly adapted to fattening sheep and
growing wool. Hogs thrive on alfalfa
and it enters largely into the problem
of producing cheap meat.
Alfalfa renovates and rejuvenates a
run-down farm. It grows stalwart
roots that create humus In the soil.
The strong roots strike deep into the
soil , making It porous and Immune
from droughts. It is admirably adapt
ed to ihe bee industry , as alfalfa honey
is equal to the nectar gathered from
the flowers of the linden tre\ Alfalfa
is a general utility legume adapted to
all kinds of live stock , poultry and the
honey industry. The cultivation of al
falfa should be extended , as soil not in
digenous to it can be inocuhued with
alfalfa bacteria. Its introduction wiil
increase the fertility of the land and
aid iu the solution of cheap meat pro
duction. Goodall's Fanner.

Times recalls the excursion of the Min
nesota editors from Winnipeg to the
Pacific Coast ten years ago. Referring
to 1 what has happened in the interval
t'ie 1 ' writer says : 'Thousands of mi-es
of < new railway lines have been built ,
and the development of the country
has i made marvelous strides. Millions
of acres , then lying in their wild and
untouched i state , have sinr-e been trans
ferred 1 into grain fields. Towns have
sprung up as if by the wand of a
magician i , and their development is now
in i full progress. It is a revelation , a
record ! of conquest by .settlement that
is remarkable. "
The Hutchlnson Leader characterizes
Western Canada as "a great country
undeveloped. The summer outing , " it
says ' , "was an rye-opener to every mem
ber i of the party , even those who were
on the excursion through Western Can
ada ten years ago , over considerable
of the territory covered this year , being
amazed at the progress and advance
ment made in that short space of time. J
The time will come when Western Can
ada will lie the bread-basket of the
world. It was a delightful outing
through a great country of wonderful
possibilities arid resources. "
Since the visit of these editors the
government lias revised its land regula
tions and it is now possible to secure
