is a terrible affliction. The most common cause of it is
some form of indigestion. Ripans Tabules positively
cure indigestion. They do not act like opiates , producing
an unnatural , immediate effect , but gradually exert an
influence over the nervous system , which results in
ready sleep , sound and refreshing.
"I am glad to give my testimonial in regard to the
great worth of Ripans Tabules , " writes a middle-aged
lady , living in Philadelphia , Pa. "I slowly recovered
from a severe illness and was getting along very well ,
only I could not sleep , which kept me from gaining
strength A friend advised me to take Ripans Tabules
which acted like a charm , giving me refreshing slumber
and also renewing my strength. I was also troubled
with dyspepsia , and found to my great surprise that as
my strength returned I was cured of this disease also. "

HIS FRUIT WAS BIG AND RED.
B. F. Stuart , who owns the
lighland fruit farm , five miles south
east of Rushvillo , believes ho has solved
; ho problem of producing perfect apples
11 spite of the many enemies of the
apple tree. His remedy lies in spraying
and ho believes it is not thoroughly un-
lerstood by the apple growers.
"I have been studying horticulture
'or thirty years , " said Mr. Stuart. "I
mvo paid particular attention to the
soil and climate of Kansas and Missouri ,
and I have come to the conclusion that
iho hour has como when all fruit grow
ers must spray to kill the insects which
are destroying the fruits , or complete
failure will overtake fruit interests.
rlaphaKard , happy-go-lucky ways nmst
)0 succeeded by the thorough , intelli
gent methods. The wants of the tree
must be studied , must bo understood
and administered to , and "Western Mis
souri and Eastern Kansas will then as
tonish the world with its fine fruit. The
climate and the soil need only the in-
: elligent assistance of the farmer to ac-
somplish this result.
"Last season the canker worm siid-
denly appeared , and in its ravages it
slighted crop after crop in my locality.
What condition produced the worms I
do not know , but they appeared in
lountless numbers , and nearly every
orchard was an easy prey for them.
Here are three or four bushels of apples
which I brought to town this morning.
Look at them. I do not think you will
find half a dozen that are not perfectly
sound. I had a big crop of the most
perfect apples I ever raised. It was ah
object lesson in the proper spraying of
trees. " , '
"What is your exact method of spray
ing ? " was asked. . '
How Stuart Saves His Fruit.
"Perhaps lean best answer by describing -
scribing what I did last season. To be
gin at the very first step , I used Paris
green of proportions of about three-
fourths of a pound of Paris green to a
fifty gallon barrel of water. Bear in
mind , however , that such a solution is
dangerously strong. With it , quicklime
must be used , always taking at least
three times more lime than Paris green.
That is , the quicklime should weigh at
least three times more than the Paris
green. The limo absorbs the free arsenic
and prevents the scalding of the foliage.
But and this should be carefully heed
ed I strongly advise , except in extraord
inary occasions , that only one-half tlie
amount of Paris green , as stated above ,
be used , as all preparations of arsenic
are powerful corrosive poisons and very
readily destroy the leaves of the trees.
I had to use a very strong solution last
spring , because it was May 14 when I
began the work of destroying the cank
er worms , which were then full grown ,
and in almost infinite numbers.
