from these strays.

they were as great a pest to travelers
as they are today.Woe be unto the

How to Treat the Work Team.
Horses employed for farm worls
should not be pampered but should bt
fed generously so as to sustain vigor
and good spirits. A team ill fed and
consequently in poor condition and fee
ble will not accomplish much real work
and it is a waste of time to hire an
expensive hand to drive such a team.
The work horses should be fed early
in the morning and they should have y
liberal feeding. The comfort and rest
of the team will be vastly promoted if
the harness is entirely removed at noon
while they are feeding. Allow them
plenty of time for a good meal and par
tial digestion before they are put to
work for the afternoon. It is poor pol
icy to put them to work right after
eating a hearty meal or upon a ful !
If we would allow the teams more
rest at noon we would accomplish more
work than when they are only allowed
time to swallow their food. At evening
let them be well groomed and theiv
legs , bellies and feet relieved from all
mud and filth.
The practice of many farmers of
driving a team through cold water to
wash the filth off their feet and legs is
dangerous , as it causes many diseases
that they are subject to.
A warm or overheated team should
not be put in a cold , airy place , but
first exercised and then blanketed and
put in a warm stable , and after the
blankets are removed they should be
wiped dry with straw or cloths.
When a' team has been exposed to
rains they should not be left to become
dry , but should be rubbed dry , as chills ,
fevers and other ailments often result
from allowing them to dry by the
evaporation of the moisture from their
A good preparation for killing hog
lice is made by melting three ptats of
lard and mixing it with one ptfnt of

Even meat frying will do , the salt be

When the grease has been melted ,
nix the coal oil well with it and apply
svith a rag or brush while warm , but
aot hot , to the backs and behind the
jars of the animals. Rub the mixture
tvell into the hair. Since hogs will not
readily stand while the application is
being made , give them an appetizing
slop in a trough and apply while the
inimals are drinking. In this way one
person can , by rapid manipulation ,

"When my little boy was two and a

cheeks with eczema. It was the itchy ,
-watery kind and we had to keep his
little hands wrapped up all the time ,
and if he would happen to get them
uncovered he would claw his face till
the blood streamed down on his cloth-
Ing. We called in a physician at once ,
but he gave an ointment which was so
severe that ray babe would scream
when it was put on. We changed doc
tors and medicines until we had spent
lifty dollars or more and baby was get
ting worse. I was so worn out watch
ing and caring for him night and day
that I almost felt sure the disease was
incurable. But finally reading of the
good results of the Cuticura Remedies ,
t determined to try them. I can truth
fully say I was more than surprised ,
for I bought oulja dollar and a half's
worth of the Cuticura Remedies ( Cuti

they did more good than all my doc
tors' medicines I had tried , and in fact
entirely cured him. His face is per

A woman who is sick and suffering , and won't at least
try a medicine which has the record of Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound , is to blame for her own wretched
There are literally hundreds of thousands of women in
the United States who have been benefited by this famous
old remedy , which was produced from roots and herbs over
thirty years ago by a woman to relieve woman's suffering.
Read what these women say :
Camden , N. J. " It is with pleasure that I send my testimo
nial for Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound , hopingit
may induce other suffering women to avail themselves of th
benefit of tliis valuable remedy.
" I suffered from pains in my back and side , sick headache * ,
no appetite , was tired and nervous all the time , and so weak I
could hardly stand. Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
made me a well woman and this valuable medicine shall
always have my praise. " Mrs. W. P. Valentine , 902 Lincoln
Ave. , Camden , N. J.
Erie , Pa. "I suffered for five years from female troubles , and
at last was almost helpless. I tried three doctors but they did
me no good. My sister advised me to try Lydia E. Pinkham'
Vegetable Compound , and it has made me well and strong. I
hope all suffering women will just give Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound a trial , for it is worth its weight in gold. "
Mrs. J. P. Endlieh , H. F. D. 7 , Erie , Pa.
Since we guarantee that all testimonials which we pub
lish are genuine , is it not fair to suppose that if Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound had the virtue to help
these women it will help any other woman who is suffer
ing from the same trouble.
For SO years Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable ( c *
Compound has been the standard remedy for 7/1 /
female ills. No sick woman does justice to ( ( /l

as with joyous hearts and smiling faces they romp and play when in health and
how conducive to health the games in which they indulge , the outdoor life they
enjoy , the cleanly , regular habits they should be taught to form and the v/holesome
diet of which they should partake. How tenderly their health should be preserved ,
not by constant medication , but by careful avoidance of every medicine of an injuri
ous or objectionable nature , and if at any time a remedial agent is required , to assist
nature , only those of known excellence should be used ; remedies which are pure
and wholesome and truly beneficial in effect , like the pleasant laxative remedy ,
Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna , manufactured by the California Fig Syrup Co.
Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna has come into general favor in many millions of
well informed families , whose estimate of its quality and excellence is based upon
personal knowledge and use.
Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Senna has also met with the approval of physicians gen
erally , because they know it is wholesome , simple and gentle in its action. We inform
all reputable physicians as to the medicinal principles of Syrup of Figs and Elixir of
Senna , obtained by an original method , from certain plants known to them to act
most beneficially , and presented in an agreeable syrup in which the wholesome Cal
if ornian blue figs are used to promote the pleasant taste ; therefore it is not a secret
remedy , and hence we are free to refer to all well informed physicians , who do
e not approve of patent medicines and never favor indiscriminate self-medication.
© © Please to remember and teach your children also that the genuine Syrup of Figs
and Elixir of Senna always has the full name of the Company California Pig
Syrup Co. plainly printed on the front of every package and that it is for sale in
bottles of one size only. If any dealer offers any other than the regular Fifty cent
size , or having printed thereon the name of any other company , do not accept it.
If you fail to get the genuine you will not get its beneficial effects. Every family
should always have a bottle on hand , as it is equally beneficial for the parents and
the children , whenever a laxative remedy is required. \
