cach of whom owns ten 50- pound

? unds of feed ,-J von- them. This
feed costs $5.50 and the gigs gain
n total of 473 pounds, worth at 14

has left $40.22 ; r a profit per ,pig of

Is Essential to Good Health.
IF you would be well, see to your
elimination. Faulty kidney ac
tion permits toxic material to re
main in the blood and upset the
whole system. Then, one is apt to
have a tired, languid feeling and,
sometimes, a toxic backache or head
ache, and oftcsi sornc irrcgulaiityof
secretions, such as scanty or burn

are acclaiming the value of Doan's
Pills, a stimulant diuretic, in this
condition. For more than forty years
Doan's have been winning favor the
country over. Ask your neighbor!

Advice is hard to lake. II is a human weakness or conceit to think we
"know it all."
Hut advice from older and wiser heads, from people who have graduated
from the school of hard knocks is well worth listening to. Especially by
the young folks.
Thrift^ ? plain common sense applied to spending is absolutely essential
when married. Of course young men and women should save fer the
time when they marry but afterward ? saving is imperative, if they are
to succeed and be happy. ?' :
Savings make a happy home for children? the worthwhile things of
life within your reach.
Reckless, thoughtless spending is fatal to both happiness and success.
