say to every suffering woman if that
medicine does not help her, there is

This is the age of substitution, and
women who want a cure should insist
upon Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound just as this woman did, and
not accept something else on which the
druggist can make a little more profit.
"Women who are passing through this
critical period or who are suffering
from any of those distressing ills pe
culiar to their sex should not lose sight
of the fact that for thirty years Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound,
which is made from roots and herbs,
has been the standard remedy for fe
male ills. In almost every community
you will liud women who have been
restored to health by Lydia E. Pink

The principal source of profit In
dairying, stock-raising and farming
lie3 in improving the quality and at
the same time keeping down the cost
of production. In this matter of profit
and loss nothing plays such an im
portant part as the question of feeds
and feeding. The natural feed for ani
mals, the one on which they do best.
is green pasture, in climates subject
to frost, man has made the same pro
vision or animals as for himself by
providing them in winter with canned
green fodder called "silage." Silage is
made most commonly from corn, cow
peas, clover, sorghum, or alfalfa, mere
ly chopped fine and stored in large
water-tight cans known as "silos." In
dry weather or in winter, when green
pasture cannot be had. this feed is
equally good in producing a flow of
milk or in putting fat on animals. One
acre of a crop harvested as silage will
feed twice as much stock as the same
amount harvested in any other man
ner. Like a glass fruit jar. a silo must be
water-tight and jointless to keep the
silage from molding or -dry firing."
For this reason, and also because no
painting or repairing is ever neces
sary, solid-wall concrete silos are
coming into general use.
The best silos are built circular In
shape. The size depends upon how
many animals are to be fed daily, the
quantity in pounds for each animal's
daily feed, and the number of days it
may be necessary to feed them. The
silo should be of such size that a layer
of silage at least two inches in depth
will be removed each day after feed
ing haB begun. This prevents a thin
top layer from molding. A dairy cow
requires about forty pounds of silage
per day, and the following table is
based on this amount Forty pounds
is also the average weight of a cubic
foot of silage.
Locate the silo where It will be con
venient for feeding. Usually it is
Joined to the barn by means of a
chute and passageway with doors.
Since the silo and its contents are
heavy, It must be built on solid
ground. The bottom of the foundation
should go below frost line. The silo
may, with advantage, extend four to
five feet into the ground. Dig the pit
large enough to allow for the thick
ness of the circular walls and a foot
ing two feet wide.
In order to save lumber the con
crete is poured into forms which can
be moved up as the concrete sets or
becomes hard. These movable forms
consist of two circular shells three to
four feet high, so made that one fits
within the other with space between
for a six-inch wall. The horizontal
framework consists of 2 by 4 inch tim-
The removal of weed cows from the
herd is doing more for the dairy busi
ness than perhaps any other one
thing. So profitable has this line of
dairy work proved that many dairy
men who were about ready to abandon
the dairy business have taken a fresh
start. But the mere removal of weed
cows is not enough. Their places
must be taken by better ones. These
are easily secured by using pure-bred
sires of known milk producing strains.
Records show that this line of work is
also profitable. More and more dairy
men annually are adopting it Some
men themselves do the work of weed
ing and breeding; others rely upon
cow-testing associations. These as
sociations cost little and pay well as
It Is unofficially reported that a Jer
sey cow owned by a member of the
American Jersey club of New York,
In a year's test gave 14.452 pounds of
milk. The average dally was 39 6-10
pounds of milk and 2 pounds and 1-7
ou ices of butter.
bers cut to a circle, which are covi
ered with sheet metal or wooden lag
ging. Each piece must be long
enough to provide for a six-foot three
inch length of the circumference of
the circle as well as several inches for
the lap or strap joints. The forms are
raised by loosening them at the joints
and setting them up again on the fin
ished section of the silo.
Concrete for silos should be rich in
Portland cement and should be put
into the forms mushy wet. Mix It one
part cement to two parts sand to four
parts crushed rock. Four parts of
clean pit or bank-run gravel may be
used instead of the sand and rock.
Measure all materials on the basis
that one bag of cement equals one
cubic foot Many persons raise the
concrete in buckets, but the work can
be done more quickly and easily by
using a horse together with a der
rick or a well braced jib-boom fixed to
an adjoining building.
The first cost of concrete silos may
or may not be greater than that of the,
best of any other kind. The time is
now at hand when farmers, like rail
roads and corporations, are consider
ing the lasting qualities of buildings.
Concrete silos need no Insurance;
they do not blow down or burn up.
They never have to be painted or re
paired. With other kinds of silos dur
ing their short lives these expenses
alone equal the first cost. Concrete
HANDY 0W FARM
Scoop Dctadiably Connected and
Has Grooves for Tines
A combination implement that is
handy for farm and stable use has
been designed by a man in the state
of Washington. It is a fork and shovel
combined, and its advantage is that it
takes up no more room than one of
these tools and can quickly be turned
from one into the other. The basic
implement is a fork, and the shovel
portion is adjustably connected. In
the head of the scoop are holes
through which the tines of the fork
pass when the scoop is to be attached,
and across the bottom is a metal strip
with a series of longitudinal grooves.

which serves to bold the shovel firmly

a tool can readily be understood. In

by a quick transformation of this de
