ter health now than I have for twelve
years. When I be-
gan to take Lydia E.

could n t sit up. 1
had female troubles
and was very ner-
vous. 1 Used the
remedies a year and
1 cun do my work
and for the last eight
months 1 have
work ed for other
women, too. I cannot praise Lydia E.
I'inkham's Vegetable Compound enough
for 1 know 1 never would have been as
well if I hail not taken it and I recom-
mend it to suffering women."
Daughter Helped Also.
" I gave it to my daughter when she
was thirteen years old. She was in

could not sleep nights. Now she looks
so healthy that even the doctor speaks
of it. You can publish this letter if you

nition hits jusl Issued a. circular en- j
titled "School Supervised llwuie liar- !
dens" which was prepared at the In-
stance of Dr. P. I'. Ciaxton, United
Htates i 'oinmlssioiicr of Education,
and copies may be secured, free of
charge, upon application to the bu-
reau at Washington. Harden special-
ists of the bureau have in preparation
other circulars for distribution hear-
ing upon tin* practical work of home
and school gardens and these are
especially recommended by the T-\-
as Industrial Congress ror the use of
l|it, 15,000 bos s and girls who are
competing for the prizes offered by
I lie I \MlgrcHS.
Cleaning up the back yard Is men-
tioned iu the circular a.s one of the
dexirablo things that result from the
garden movement. It should be com-
pletely ridded of all rubbish, and if a
high board f nee NMwtnAt i'. the
plot will be Improved if this should
In- replaced by a chicken wire fence.
Hoard fences are objectionable
because they often present free sur-
face drainage and free circulation of
air, as Well as exclude the helpful
sunshine from the planta for much
of the time.
Beginning In gardening, the bureau
recommends, should be encouraged
to select the more easily grown
crops such as onions, radish, lettuce,
'pens, beans, turnips, carrots, beets,
tomatoPK and cabbages. Too fre-
quently boys select too many crops
and fall to raise enough of any to be
of use either for home nor market
purposes For market purposes the
fewer the crops consistent with con-
tinuous cropping, the greater the
financial returns. Too much stress
cannot be placed on the necessity of
selecting crops that will be required
to supply the home, or for which
there Is a good market.
Soil should be broken In the spring
as early as possible, yet It should not
l,o handled while wet. A spading
fork is probably the best tool: deep
spading gives better opportunity for
root development. A liberal dressing
of well-rotted manure spaded Into
the soil supplies plant food. Improves
the physlclal condition and serves
to hold moisture during dry seasons.
Lime Is often beneficial, as It "sweet-
ens" the soil, or neutralises any of
Its add character. In order to give
the seed the most favorable chances
for development, the soil should bo
well pulverised before planting.
Instructions nro also given as to
planting, thinning and weeding. Fre-
quent and thorough cultivation Is
most essential In successful grading
Cultivation liberates plant food, pre.
serves moisture and Improves the
condition of the soil. An effort
should be made to keep a. loose dust-
like or soil mulch on the surface to
prevent he evaporation of water. To
maintain this, It. will bo necessary to
cultivate soon after each rain or
watering. When artificial watering
Is practiced, It should he remember-
ed Mint one heavy application Is bet-
ter than many sprinklings.

A Lesson from the Past
Years a*:o, before baking pow-
ders were so well known, the
housewife sometimes made her own
from cream of tartar and soda.
These materials were then
comparatively expensive and pro-
cesses of refining had not been
devised to bring them to the hi«;h
state of purity of the present-
day well known cream of tartar
baking powders .such as Dr.Price's ;
and yet she never thought of
buying alum, then as now a cheap
and inferior substitute for cream
of tartar. She wouldn't think of
permitting an ounce of alum ti
enter her kitchen.
Vet housekeepers are to-day
asked to buy alum baking powders
with which to make food for their
The statement on the label af-
fixed to every can naming the
ingredients of which the baking
powder is composed affords a
method of protection against ths
use of undesirable kinds.

That is a Rood story that comes to
us from (Ireenvllle a story tiial tells
of progress and prosperity, improved

The (Ireenvllle precinct of Hunt
<'utility began Thursday the very hap-
py task of spcnditiK $100,000 when
the first plow was formally placed
in the wound oil West Is>e street by
t'ounty Judge Norwood. The occasion
was the breaking of wound for what
Is styled "the biggest concrete road
contract ever let in the South,"
which embodies the construction of
forty miles of concrete roadway In
and around Greenville. The formal
exercises, which were attended by a
large crowd of citizens of (Ireenvllle
and the surrounding road district,
were presided over by Secretary K. C.
Bracken of the Chamber of Com-
merce, this movement having been
fostered from the beginning by that
The following took part on the
program: Mayor It. M Chapman,
who spoke on " What It Means to
(Ireenvllle," I-lar! Arnold of the spec-
ial road board, who told why con-
crete was chosen, saying that the
first, cost of the roads was the least
important, but thut th>> maintenance
was the chief item for consideration
anil for this reason they had decided
on concrete. President C. M Port-
wood of the Chamber of Commerce
spoke next, st-itlng that prowess
moves In circles. He told of (ireen-
vllie's first paving on the public
square, and then of the widening of
the circle to twenty miles of paved
"Anil now." he said, "the circle
enlarges even further. I shall be hap-
py when It extends to the boundaries
of the county."
Major W. U Meckham of the roail
hoard next assured those present that
the board Intended to see that the
people got a "(food Job of work."
Fred Morton of the (Ireenvllle Even-
ing Banner spoke next for the press,
and it tj. Wiiggomon of th Roach.
Mann I iik ftr Waggoman Construction
Company assured the people that the
company Intended to build the test,
system of roads ever constructed In
the South. He was followed by
Julian C. l-'leld, consulting engineer
for the county, who termed himself
the "fail Buy" and the "goat" of tho
enterprise. Judge Norwood closed the
exercises with a short speech and
formally plowed the first, furrow,
while Mr Wiiggonian held the lines
nnd Mr. Field directed the path.

One- Feed tlie iieus oil mood, whole

Two—Keep the poultry house clean,
evenly ventilated, free from drafts,

birds from the Hock.
Four—Provide plenty of clean, dry

Five—Gather eggs at least once a

Six— Keep eggs in the coolest, driest
Seven—Never keep eggs near kero-

Eight—Never lake to market eggs
found in stolen nests, for almost in-
variably they have started to Incubate.
Nine—Do not wash eggs, but rather,

to direct sunlight nor to extreme heat

Thirteen—Market eggs as regularly

Fourteen—Kill off, dispose of, or
