"About six works ngo I loft my
home on our fnrm near Acworth, Ob.,
to come to my ulster's home hern Ic
Atlanta, and I left with only o
shadow of hope of ever returning
"I left Acworth In a comfortable
automobile, propped up on pillows,
coming through the country. I had
almost as much medicine as baggage
—a big box full of all kinds that had
been prescribed for me. I reached
here very weak and with scarcely
enotiKh strength to walk to the door.
This trouble from which I had suf-
fered so long and which I was told
was pellagra, had reduced me to al-
most a shadow, as I only weighed
"My brother-in-law, Mr. Battle,
said, 'Well, you have tried everything
else with no relief, now I want you
to lay aside your "drug shop" and
take Tanlac.' Well, he got It for me
and I started on my first bottle that
"When I had taken about half the
first bottle I began to feel stronger
and encouraged. I continued to take
it and It Is nothing short of marvel-
ous how I Improved day by day. My
appetite returned and my food
seemed to nourish me and agree with
me. My skin and complexion began
clearing and I Improved In every way
possible until 1 am now n well woman,
and when I say well I mean absolutely
what I say. I want to tell the whole
world that I thank God for Tanlac.
"I weigh ninety-five pounds now

life. I am going back to my husband

The Modern Day Farmer Applies
Business Methods and Seeks
More Than a Living on
A nation-wide cry is being made for
more economy and greater production,
and probably never was the need of
foodstuffs equal to that <rf the present,
drain prices are the highest in the na-
tion's history and today the agricul-
tural fields of America offer Induce-
ments that are unequuled In any other
line of commerce or business. The
Ideal life Is that close to nature, en-
Joying the freedom of God's great out-
doors and fulfilling a duty to human-
ity by producing from a fertile soil
that which Is essential to the very ex-
istence of a less fortunate people who
are actually starving to death for food-
stuffs that can be produced so eco-
nomically In the United Stutes and
High prices for all grains, undoubt-
edly, will be maintained for a number
of years, and It appears a certainty
that the agriculturist will reap a
bounteous return for Ills labor and at
the same time carry out the demands
of patriotic citizenship. A wrong con-
ception has been generally noticed as
to "Life on the Farm." It has been,
to a large extent, considered as only
a place to live peacefully and afford a
living for those who are satisfied with
merely a comfortable existence. Such
a wrong Impression has been created.
In a measure, by the lack of systema-
tic business principles to farming in
general. But today farming and agri-
culture have been given a supremacy
In the business world and require the
same advanced methods as any other
line of commerce. In no other busi-
ness does a system adoption pay bet-
tor than on the farm, and it is certain
that there Is no other line of work,
that, generally speaking, needs It as
been laid to ruins. The property dam-
age will exceed a half million dollars.
Hundreds of families are homeless.
Passing from west to east, the
storm caused heavy property damago
and loss of life for a distance of thirty
miles In each direction from here.

Details of the Sunday storms near

bring It up to the most serious of all
when full reports are In. The Satur-
day storm at Mattoon was the most
serious as far as details are complete.
Fifty-four persons are known to be
dead and it 1b estimated that an equal
number are burled in the ruins of

In addition, more than five hundred
persons were Injured, many of them

Nashville. Tenn.—A telephone mes-

20 or more persons hud been killed and
scores Injured by a storm which swept
through Hickman, Bondurant, Clinton,

that Clinton and Bardwell virtually
had been destroyed.
It was estimated that thirty-five or
more persons were killed in Bedford
and Bondurant. No estimate was
made of the number of dead at Clinton
and Bardwell. Thirteen persons, most-
ly negroes, were killed on the Dodd
farm near Bondurant. The power
house at Hickman was severely dam-
aged and the city Is In darkness.
Fifteen Die In Arkansas.
Little Rock.—Fifteen persons are
known dead and scores are reported in-
jured as the result of a tornado that
struck Mississippi county. Several
died when their homes were swept in-
to near-by lakes and they were
drowned. At a setlement called To-
matoe a man and a child were swept
into the Mississippi river and drowned.
It is believed that the death list will
exceed 25, as several of the injured are
not expected to live. Property loss
will be heavy.
