out to be a benefactor.
When it became apparent that the
alfalfa was dead Mr. Williams

beans and the field produced 275
bushels, which is "some beans." How
ever the beans sold for $9 a bushel,

is "some money" for a 20-acre tract
to return its owner. v

Moisture in Corn Hinders
Richardson County Farmers
Stella. Neb.. Nov. (Specials-It
is estimated that Ual f the farmers in
this vicinity have stonped huking
their corn because it contains so much
moisture. One farmer today said he
would rather have his corn in the
field until next spring than to have it
now lull of moisture. He said that
the train elevators have testrs to de-
c the amount ot moisture in
the corn offered which would give the
farmers no advantage as he has had
in the past to shell it later in the sea
son, when the moisture is frozenin
the grain,and deliver it to market In
that endition. Some farmers who have
found the ears beginning to mould
fare are moving it occasionally in the
cribs to give it more ventilation and
air. The average yield is the best in
years and the acreage is large.

"There can be bo healthy, beautiful, rosy
cheeked wonfen without iron," says Dr.
Ferdinand King, a New York Physicla and
Medical author. ''In my recent talks, to phy
sicians on the grae and serious consequences
of iron deficiency In the bjood of American
women, I have strongly emphasized the fact
that doctor should prescribe more organic
iron nuxated iron-rfor their nervous, run
down, weak, haggard-looking women pa
tients. Pallor means anaemia. The skin of
an anaemic woman Is pale, the flesh flabby.
The muscles lack tone,
the brain fags and the
memory fails, and often
they become weak, nerv
ous, irritable, despondent
and melancholy. When the
iron goes from the blood
of women, the roses go
from their cheeks.
"In the most common
foods of America, the
starches, sugars, table
syrups, candies, polished rice, white
bread, soda crackers, biscuits, mac

have removed the iron of Mothe)
Earti from these- Impoverished foods,
and silly methods of ' home cookery,
by throwing down the waste pipesthe
waters in which our vegetables are
cooked are responsible for another
grave iron loss.'
"Therefore, if you wish to preserve
your youthful vim and vigor- to a ripe
old age, you must supply the iron de
ficiency in your food by using some
form of orgsnic iron, jifst as you
would use salt when your food has
not enough sslt.
"As I have said a hundred times over, organic
iron is the greatest of all strength, builders. If
people would only take Nuxated Iron when they
feel weak or run down, instead of dosing them
selves with habit-forming drugs, stimulants and
alcoholic beverages I am convinced that in this
way lby could ward off disease, preventing it
