By Applying Sloan^s Liniment to
Forehead You Can Stop
the Severe Pains. .
Many headaches are of a nenralgic
'Origin. The symptoms of such head
aches are intense and lingering pains
in the brow, temples or back of the head.
There is one certain relief that has
been known and recommended for years
back, Sloan’s Liniment. One applica
tion and the dnll pain is practically
Kone. It is easily applied without rub
bing. Rubbing is unnecessary, as Sloan’s
Liniment quickly penetrates to the seat
Aching muscles, rheumatism, bruises,
lumbago, chilblains, sprains and stiff
neck can also be most effectively treat-
€fd with Sloan’s Liniment. Cleaner than
mussy plasters or ointments; it does not
stain the skin or clog the pores.

Notes of Interest to Farmers.
By W. B. Bailey, Farm Demonstrator.
There is still time to plant salad
crops for early spring use, pro
vided the soil is srood, the seed bed
firm, and the open farrow plan of
seeding is followed.
The record. The best of C. M.
Pool’s sweet clover grew five feet
Id five months from seeding. The
yield of green forage was tons
per acre. When thoroughly dry
he will report on the hay yield.
Another yield. Mr. Houston
Owensby sowed a mixture of Su
dan grass and peas after wheat
and made tons of fine hay per
acre. When sowed late in the sea
son the mixture matures evenly,
but if sowed early the Sudan is
ready to cut some time before the
The seed bed. Make it firm,
pack it down. The disc set straight
and weighted answers fairly well
f no packer is available. The steel
harrow does good work if the teeth
are put in to the head and set al
most flat and weighted. The type
of barrow sold generally is not the
best because when the teeth are set
flat they drag in the ground.

Few people properly appreciate
the value of rape for salad. The
Chinese consume many thousand
tons annually. Besides its table
value it makes great food for
chickens and pigs. Properly plant
ed now it will make a great yield
of forage for early spring grazing.
It will be almost like growing a
crop of corn in April and May,

Your Health Depends on What
‘After all,” says a bulletin from
the State Board of Health, ‘‘good
health is largely a matter of what
goes into the stomach. If a person
eats heavily of rich, greasy con
centrated foods, such as fried
meats, rich pastries, soggy or un
derdone breads, he will soon find
himself seeking a relief from head
ache, sluggishness, constipation,
and biliousness, and the patent
medicine route will be the way he
will likely choosy. Pills, purga
tives and most any patent medicine
will find a hearty welcome and be
come a warm friend to persons
who so poison themselves. The
trouble arising from eating food
of this kind is that it ferments in
the stomach, throws off poisons and
creates a condition which calls for
a stronger poison in the form of
medicine to throw off the food
poison. The patent medicine habit
is not acquired and the digestive
organs of the stomach are wrecked
and no longer perform their natural
“On the other hand, whoever
eats freely of fruits, vegetables,
milk, butter, salads, cereals and
nuts—foods prepared by nature
for man—not only avoids digestive
troubles but he is spared the evil
effects of food poisons, such as
rheumatism, headaches, sluggish
ness, and biliousness. He also
escapes the patent medicine habit.
He eats according to nature’s de
mand and needs and no medicine
is required as an after dose.”

How Catarrh Is Contracted.
Mothers are sometimes so thoughtless
as to neglect the colds which their child
ren contract. The inflammation of the
mucus membrane, at first acute, be
comes chronic and the child has chronic
catarrh, a disease that is seldom cured
and that may prove a life’s burden.
Many persons who have this loathsome
disease will remember having had fre
quent colds at the time it was contract
ed,. A little forethought, a bottle of
Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy judicious

been avoided. Obtainable everywhere
