one of the most wonderful agricultural
states In the country snd people a

I have been struck with its beauty, but
I want to say that I had no Idea that
Its was such a wonderful state."
The honey display is Itnereatlng. One
entire building la given over to an ex
hibition of the sweet stuff and the lit
tle bees, who are responsible for 1U man

cream separator. The water is . pumped
into a tank in which Is kept the cans of
cream and milk and runs slowly out into
the watering tank or any other place.
In this tank are kept cans which hold
butter and other things which the good
housewife may wish to keep coot' and

for the cream and milk.
Calves Fed oa Skim Milk.
Four calves are on exhibition brought
up entirely on skim 'milk, fed to the ani
mals when it la fresh from the separator.

old and weighs 47 pounds, another I
months old and weigh 66J pounds and
one 7 months old weighs 708 pound a A

Congressman Fowler of Illinois had It
In for Great Britain. He scored the old
country for Its attitude at th preront
time on the war proposition, and said
that America could stop the war at any
time by refusing to sell or furnish any
thing to the belligerent nations. Oov
ernor Morehead said he had always liked
the .old convention system of nomination
of candidates for state offices. He would
not entirely do away with th primary,
but he believed that a more efficient set
of candidates could be put up by a con

percentage of th voters did not know th
qualifications of th candidates and had
probably never heard of them until called

THE PURE WHITE MINERAL OIL
FOR THE TREATMENT OF CONSTIPATION
A YEAR AGO America was getting practically
all its mineral oil from German and Belgian re
fineries, Where it was manufactured from Rus
Then came the war. Importations ceased, and soon
Russian mineral oil was unobtainable.
But mineral oil had become a vital necessity. Doctors everywhere
were prescribing it. Thousands of men and women had found the
mineral oil treatment for constipation of inestimable benefit.
Recognizing the existence of this widespread de-
mand, the Standard Oil Company (New Jersey)
now offers in Nujol an American mineral oil
equal in every respect to the best grade of Rus
Nujol is odorless and tasteless, absolutely neu
tral, and is not digested or absorbed into the
system. It acts merely as a mechanical lubri
cant. Nujol is not a drug. Tts use will not give quick,
temporary relief. But Nujol is a genuine rem
edy in that it relieves constipation in the most
. natural way by lubricating the lining of the in
testines, softening the intestinal contents, and
thus promoting healthy and normal bowel
Write for 'The Rational Treatment of Constipation
