some form or
other, says a well-known authority, be-
cause the uric acid in meat excites the
kidneys, they become overworked; get
sluggish; clog up and cause'all sorts of
distress, particularly backache and mis-
ery in the kidney region; rheumatic twin-
ges, severe headaches, acid stomach, con-
stipation, torpid liver, sleeplessness,
bladder and urinary irritation.
The moment your bock hurts or kid-
neys aren’t acting right, or if bladder
bothers you, get about four ounces of
Jad Salts from any good pharmacy;
take a tablespoonful in a glass of water
before breakfast for a few days and your
kidneys will then act fine. This famous
salts is made from the acid of grapes
and lemon juice, combined with lithia,
and has been used for generations to
flush clogged kidneys and stimulate them
to normal activity; also to neutralize the
acids in tbe urine so it no longer irri-
tates, thus ending bladder disorders.
• Jad Salts cannot injure anyone;
makes a delightful effervescent lithia-
watcr drink which millions of men and
women take now and then to keep the
kidneys and urinary organs clean, thus
avoiding serious kidney disease.

present by iuvltation.
H. O. Harrington i>olnted out that
the most important problem now lie-
fore the committee was that of secur-
ing for Grayson county a couipetfcut
Through the splendid work that has
been done by Mrs. Vaden, the work of
the agricultural agent will he much
easier than in the ]mst according to
the opinion of Marion Shaw, chair-
man of the committee.
J. W. Blassingame, county commis-
sioner, stated that he was decidedly
In favor of providing county funds
for the employment of a county
demonstration agent, on tin* oue con-
dition that a competent agent could
be found. Mr. Blassingame also
lxdnted out tliat the Texas statutes
allowed only for the appropriation
sufficient to employ one agent. How-
ever, Ice B. Reeves. Grayson county
representative to the Texas legislature
stated that, there would lie no trouble
iu obtaining a special aet of the legis-
lature to permit the county commis-
sioners to employ a woman canning
dub agent and also a demonstration
agent. Mr. Reeves stated ,that this
was a move in the right direction, he
was heartily In favor of anything
that would help the agricultural inter-
ests of the county, and that the work
lieing done by Mrs. Vaden was of very-
Ou motion to H. O. Harrington,
the legislature was requested to grant
special act of legislation that will
permit the commissioners court to em-
ploy a woman canning club agent and
farm demonstration agent for
J. N. Touchstone stated that he is
member of the Chandler of Com-
merce on account of the fact that the
Chamber of Commerce is doing things
for the upbnlldlug of Grayson county;
Mr. Touchstone said:
“Let us act through the Cliamlier
of Commerce, then get a demonstra-
tion agent who knows something and
can do something."
On motion by Mr. Touchstone,
resolution will be prepared and sub-
mitted to the legislature requesting
that four junior agricultural aud
mechanical colleges be established
in Texas, and that one of these be
located in North Texas. In discus-
sing this, Mr. Touchstone said:
The present agricultural and me-
chanical college Is located away from
the center of the state; the type of
soil there Is different from the ma-
jority of our best farm land In Texas,
and we need an agricultural and
mechanical college located In North
Texas, for In this section we have the
greatest agricultural section of the
state—that most susceptible to Improve
ami enlightened methods."
On motion by H. O. Harrington,
boys’ cotton ciuhs will lie organized
throughout the county. The co-opera-
tion of Grayson county school teach-
ers will lie Invited in this on the same
plane in which they have eo-o|iorated
in organizing the Boys’ Corn Clubs.
Mr. Harrington Was appointed chair-
man of a committee to secure fine se-
lect cotton seed to Ik* distributed,
enough to each boy to plant one acre
and to arrange for the contest, prizes
- in dlseu-Kdug this. Mr. Harrington
said: “Cotton Is and will always Ik*
our chief money crop, and we should
give more attention to the selection of
the liest seed and the time to begin
Is to liegln with the boys.”
Last year the Agricultural Commit-
tee secured 300 corn club boy*. This
year J. A. Hardaway has been appoint-
ed chalrnoin of the committee and
hopes to have 1.000 tsiys enlisted In
the corn clubs. Mr. Hardaway will
also provide free seed for the boya.
One breeder has already agreed to
furnish to the committee enough seed
for fifty of the lio.vs.
In discussing the matter of farm
terracing In Grayson county. Chairman
Shaw pointed out that Professor J. C.
Olsen of A. ftml M. College has agreed
give three days to Grayson county,
