A bad back makes a day's work twice
as hard. Backache usually comes from
weak kidneys, and if headaches, dizzi-
ness or urinary disorders are added,
don't wait—get help before the kidney
disease takes a grip—before dropsy, grav-
el or Bright's disease sets in. Doan's
Kidney Pills have brought new life and
new strength to thousands of working
men and women. Used and recom-

Productive Milker end Her Calf.

Too many dairymen would like to
»wn first-class dairy cows, but are not
•tilling to buy them, and are too impa-
tient to build up their own herds.
This la not difficult to do if one would
tnly wait upon the processes of na-
ture.
It is a much better pian to build
»p one’s own herd from the beginning
than to buy a lot of fine cows with-
out understanding them, or to struggle
Along with a lot of mixed breeds, many
of whom will not produce enough milk
to pay for their feed.
The man who will build up his herd
from cows of his own raising will
some to know each Individual animal,
understand her temperament, her ca-
pacity, both for feed and for milk and
butter, and thus will be better able
to know how to feed and care for his
herd as a whole.
Dairying is a fine business, and a
most fascinating one at certain peri-
ods of the year when butter and milk
Are high and the money comes in reg-
^ ularly with enlarged checks, but there
Is always a time of the year when
dairying is at a low ebb.
In the busy season the herd, unless
It is managed exclusively for milk
as a business, is apt to be neglected
by the pressure of general farm work;
pastures go dry in the heat of sum-
mer, and without forage crops to take
their place the mllk-iiow runs down
to an alarmingly low point, the money
receipts fall off, the profits shrink, and
It takes a stout-hearted and optimistic
man to go through these seasons of de-
pression and win out in the long run.
Regarding the herd, it is of course
one thing to be able to buy a good
cow and another thing to know a good
cow when she Is seen. Cows with
long pedigrees are not always the
best. \
One of the most productive milkers
we have seen during the past ten years
was bought by the head of an agricul-
tural college from a farmer for $20.
Within a year she made a state rec-
ord. The farmer had owned this cow
for four years and did not know what
she was worth.
Here was one case where a man
could have built up from this single
cow a most valuable herd had he
been able to tell a good cow when he
saw hxr.
There was a good reason for raising
our own cows. By the selection of
the best calveB every year, and the
UBe of a thoroughbred dairy bull, a
man can, if he is in love with the
business, produce in a very few years,
and at comparatively low cost, a supe-
rior herd and one that will make him
money year in and year out.
It is not a very difficult matter to
make each generation of cows better
producers and more profitable than
the preceding one. Of course, there
will in every herd be some freaks and
these must be carefully weeded out;
and here is where the dairyman's judg-
ment comes into play.
Very often the most unlikely look-
ing cow in the herd may turn out to
be the best producer, and a man must
have absolute knowledge of the pro-
ducing points of an animal in order
to make a wise selection.

r GREAT FORAGE PLANT
ALFALFA OF IMMEN8E VALUE IN
SOUTHWESTERN STATES.
m
I
VouAg Plant la Rather Delicate and a
< Weak Feeder, Conaequently
Seed Bed Must Be Care-
fully Prepared.
(By H. SNYDER and J. A. HUMMEL,)
Alfalfa Is a native of western Asia;
It was early introduced Into southern
Europe and later was taken to South
America, whence It found its way into
Mexico and then to California and
other western states. In the region
south and west of the Missouri river
it found congenial conditions and has
proved of Immense value to farmers
throughout that section. Now, there
Is scarcely a locality in the United
States where alfalfa Is not successfully
grown.
Alfalfa belongs to the same family
as clover, peas and beans, the legume
family. The young plant at first has
a single stem, but as this Is cut off
and grows older It branches and forms
a a crown with many stems. The plant
’ has a strong tap root with smaller lat-
eral roots as feederp. This tap root
goes deeply into the soil and finds
moisture even when far below the sur-
face. On the roots are found tubercles,
9r small nodules. Blmilar to those found
on red clover roots, and by means of
these tubercles, which are induced by
bacteria, the plant is enabled to gather
and use as plant food free nitrogen of
the air, so that In common with red
clover and other members of this turn
roots it leaves the soil richer in this
element than it was before producing
the crop. Professor Davenport, when
speaking of the members of this im-
portant plant family, says: “They not
only work for nothing and board them-
selves, but they pay for the privilege.”
These plants are the only ones of any
agricultural importance that can use
the atmospheric nitrogen, and they can
do It only with the aid of certain bac-
teria.
The young alfalfa plant is rather
delicate and a weak feeder, conse-
quently the seed bed must be care-
fully prepared, with a good supply of
plant food readily available. The

Not Much of a Mystery.
Two uewspaper men met on the
street of one of the lnrge cities, spoke
their minds freely, and told the truth,
one to another. "Well,” said Smith,
"I hear that old Jones, editor of the
Trumpet, was found dead in his office
last night.” "Yes, so I hear,” an-
swered Ilrown. "Foul play is suspect
ed, of course,” he added. “That’s the
police theory. But why should any-
body kill him? Had his paper been
making any enemies?” “None at all,
as far as I can hear. You know he had
stopped all sensationalism and was
printing a pure, modest, highly moral
family paper.” "Aha! That explains
it!” "Who could have killed him?"
“He wasn't murdered, man. He
starved to death!”—San Francisco

ground should be plowed rather deeply
and the surface brought Into a fine con-
dition as In the sowing of clover or
other small seeds. From ten to fifteen
poundB should be sown per acre, pref-
erably without a nurse crop, and as
early as possible In the spring with-
out danger of frost, which may kill
the young plants. As soon as the first
blossoms appear or whenever the plant
shows signs of losing thriftlness, it
should be mowed, uh this stimulates
stronger growth. It enn usually be cut
throe times during the season, and
after It has become well established
It will yield from three to five tons of
cured hay per acre.
With an Eye Toward Economy.
Mr. Perry had been out for a day's
fishing, as he proudly displayed the
contents of his basket to ills wife,
she exclaimed:
“Oh, Alva, aren't they beauties! But
I've been so anxious Cpr the puBt hour,
dear.”
"Foolish little one!” said Alva
caressingly; "why, what could have
happened to me?"
"Oh, I didn't worry about you,
dear," said the woman; "but it grow
so late I was afraid that before you
got back to town the fish markets
would all be closed.”—National
Monthly.

Recently was published the fact of
remarkable winnings by Canadian
farmers in several events during the
past threo or four years. The latest
is that of Messrs. J. C. Hill & Sons
of Lloydniinster, Saskatchewan, who
won In a hard contest for the oat
championship over Montana. At the
National Corn Exposition at Dallas
during February, Montana oats wore
awarded the championship for the
United States. Waiting for the win-
ner of this to be announced was a
peck of oats belonging to the Ca-
nadian growers above mentioned, and
alongside of these was a like quantity
belonging to a Minnesota grower, who
was barred from the regular compe-
tition because he was at one time the
winner of the trophy—the prize. The
threo entrlos were side by side on the
judges bench. It would not be pos-
sible to bring together three more
likely samples. The Montana and
Saskatchewan entries were of equal
weight—50 pounds to tho bushel. The
Minnesota sample was some three
pounds lighter. The award was
unanimous in favor of the Saskatche-
wan oats. A remarkable feature and
one greatly to the credit of the Ca-
nadian product was that tho oats,
grown in 1913, were grown and shown
by those who had competed during
the past two years, winning on each
occasion. This, the third winning,
gave them for tho third time the
world's championship and full posses-
sion of the splendid $1,500 silver
trophy contributed by the state of
Colorado. i
The oats which have thus given to
Western Canada another splendid ad-
vertising card, were grown 300 miles
north of the international boundary
line, proving that in this lutltude, all
the smaller grains can be grown with
greater perfection and with more
abundant yield than further south. In
! all this country are to be found farm-
j ers who produce oats running from
42 to 48 poundB to the bushel, and
with yields of from 60 to 100 bush-
els per acre. Wheat also does well,
grades high, and yields from 30 to 40
bushels per acre. The same may be
said of any portion of Manitoba,
Saskatchewan and Alberta, famed
over the world not only as a country
where championship grains are grown,
but where cattle and horses are raised
that also carry off championships and
where wild grasses are abundant
ylelders, cultivated hay and alfalfa
are grown, thus giving plenty of feed,
and with a good climate, sufficient
shelter and plenty of water, bring
about results such as western Canada
has been able to record. Thousands
of farmers from the United States
who have their homes in Canada bear
ample testimony to the benefits they
have derived from farming in west-
ern Canada.—Advertisement. .
Interesting Anecdote.
George Washington, tho father of
his country, came home early one
morning from the lodge of which he
was a member. Several initiations had
been the order of the evening, and a
large bowl of cherry bounce had been
provided to assuage the burning thirst
occasioned by the trips across the hot
sands with the novitiates. It was long
after 2 a. m. by the sundial in the
front yard when Mr. Washington let
himself in at the front door. He was
sitting on the bottom step of the stairs,
softly removing his gilt-buckled shoeB
when a white-robed form appeared at
the landing, and a calm female voice
Inquired:
“Is that you, George?”
"Yes, my dear Martha," he replied
politely.
How did you open the door? I
didn’t henr you.”
Martha, I cannot tell a lie. I did it
with iny little latchkey.”
Eats Freely But
Has No Dyspepsia
A Little Pepsin Hi a Mild Laxa-
tive Promptly Corrected
a Bad Indigestion.
Fortunate is the one who can eat
"anything" without sufferiug the tor-
tures of dyspepsiu, but as few are so
fortunate, care should be taken In the
matter of diet. Eating slowly, masti-
cating the food thoroughly aud taking
a short walk after the heavy meal of
the day will do much towurds assisting
digestion. Any grown-up person ought
to know the peculiar foods that do not
agree, and these should be avoided.
When these common-sense aids fall,
the next thing to do Is to take a mild
digestive tonic with laxative proper-
ties, and there is none better than Dr.
Caldwell’s Syrup Pepsin. It contains
the greatest of all aids to digestion,
good pepBin. It has other ingredients
that act mildly on the bowels, which
together form a combination for the
relief of dyspepsia or indigestion that
is unsurpassed.
Its action is to tone and strengthen
the stomach and bowel muscles so
that they can again do their work nat-
urally without outside aid, and when
that happy moment comes all medi-
cine can be dispensed with. It Is the
best remedy obtainable for any dis-
order of the stomach, liver and bow-
els, for dyspepsia, constipation, bilious-
ness, headaches, drowsiness after eat-
ing, gas on the stomach, etc. Thou-
sands of users will testify to this,
among them Mr. J. W. Goucher, atltes,
Idaho, who for several years had all I

the worst symptoms of chronic dyspep-
sia. Since taking Dr. Caldwell's
Syrup Pepsin these have all gone, and
although Mr. Goucher says he is 64,
he does not look more than 40.
Syrup Pepsin is sure in its results,
and a vast Improvement over chewing
or swallowing tablets and mints, or
taking cathartics, salts, etc., all of
which are harsh and nauseous and at
best do but temporary good. You can
obtain Syrup Pepsin at any drug store
for fifty cents or one dollar a bottle.
Results are always guaranteed or
money will be refunded.
Families wishing to try a free sam-
ple bottle can obtain It postpaid by ad-
dressing Dr. W. B. Caldwell, 203 Wash-

Hospital patients of today are bet-

the effect that "gif ony man brings to
the market corrupt swine or saimond
to be sauld, they still be taken by the
baillle, and incontinent, without ony
question, sail he sent to the leper
folke; ’ and If there be no lepers then
only "sail they bo destroyed utterlie.”
