A short hog crop and higher pork prices
are the prognostication of hog dealers
at tho Union Stock yards. The open win
ter nnd the plentlfut feed lots have re
suited In a fairly finished crop almost
& month before the opening of the regu
lar reason. This crop will be taken up
oulcKly and then there will be a gap,
according to the dealers. The gap wit!
mean a Jump of pork puces that will
run near $10. It Is thought. The present
prices are well over the IS mark,
It Is also stated by the speculators and
commission men that the use of the ait
ferent preventives and treatments has i
resulted in a decrease of the cholera
mortality among hogs. At that, now
ever, there Is sUll a shortage of IB per
cent, say the dealers.

Itencats Advice To Use Mentho
Laxene Medicine, Which Anyone
Oil Make at Home Cheaper Tnan
Labeled Goods Purer and Better,
People who've "barrels ot money" prob
ably won't appreciate this advice.
This is for the reader who knows the
value of every five-cent piece, and us
u&lly it saves from 40 to 100 fivo-cent
nieces for those who are Informed. Buy
lne medicine In dribs costs more than
making a big supply yourself. Buying
rviiniirv natent medicines means that
you nay too much for syrups, corks, bot
ti-. labels, cartons, etc. For Instance,
If you buy a 26-cent bottle of cough medt
cine, it contains about two ounces, four-
fifths of which is syrup and for S5 cents
vnu can make oee-hair gallon ot syrup,
nv making Mentho-Lrfixene medicine
at home you save lots of money on syrup,
alone, and besides you know It's pure and
quickly effective. Let us prove then that
the best and cheapest way to overcome
coughs, colds, catarrh, and to prevent
nnoumonla. diphtheria, la grippe, Is to
make this fine big supply of medicine,
by mixing one-half pint of boiling water
with a Pint of granuiatea sugar, men,
buy the pure concentrated essence Men
tho-Laxene (a ZVi oz. bottle) empty
into a pint bottle or Jar and fill it up
with the syrup. Directions with eacn
bottle tells how to make and take, while
the manufacturers guarantee to refund
money to any dissatisfied purchaser. You
run no risk and will have on hand a mea,
iclne which has never been equaled for
colds, coughs, bronchitis, catarrn, noarse
ness. etc. Its' tonlo laxative action aids
the entire system to a healthy bosl:
and fatal diseases are thus logically pre
vented from reaching a dangerous point,

THIS bodk is writ
ten for all women
who face the
greatest problem of the
Twentieth Century. It is part
of the great feminine move
ment that embraces all
states, all cities, all towns
and rural communities. Wo
men are no longer ransack
ing libraries to find out
whether Hamlet was mad or
whether Bacon wrote Shake
speare's plays. The feminine
mind is changing to a new
and widespread interest in
live present day problems.
Their demand for books that
deal with civics and social
problems has increased
enormously. The Adminis
tration Economy Book will
find a warm welcome in the
heart of every woman who
turns its pages looking for
information of a beneficial
Cook Book is the
answer given by these 450
women. It is a messago to
EVERY American home.
It does not theorize, it doesn't
preach, it goes quickly to
the heart of the matter and
deals directly with the great
problem of economic food
preparation. The woman
who liVes in a mansion and
the woman who lives in a
cottage will find a message
there for her individual
needs. All the suggestions
are not economical from the
standpoint of the woman
whose husband earns $25.00
a week, but be it remem
bered this book is written
for ALL women to read and
