some splendid advice. We wish every
one could have-heard his 'discourse, if
the directions laid down, were ob
served and followed, there would be a
great change for the good faT this

not be afraid of doing their duty in

do no harm, that the future genera

several miles away The Dr. with
some friends were following him in 'a
borrowed car, when they discovered it
on the roadside where the theif had
left had left it after he found he
could ride no f uther, . so taking an
overcoat and pair of gloves from, car,
he continued on his way. But the trail
i ii r ti
was warm ana me persuers nnauy
began to .close in on him so the he
took to the woods to throw them off,
making a wide detour he came back
to the road and caught a passing car,
on its way to Greenville S. C. and 'at-'
temped to make his escape. But was
finally overtaken, and carried to Hen
dersonville where he was given a
perliminary trial, and confined in jail.
Car stealing seems to be very popular
now. But all of them takes a chance
at it, are not caught, as quick as this

BULKY FEED FOR BROOD SOW
Clover Chaff When Scalded and Soaked
for Twelve Hours Is Palatable
In reply to frequent inquiries for a
bulky feed for wintering brood sows,
it may be said that clover chaff, such
as accumulates on a barn floor, when
scalded and soaked for 12 hours, makes
a palatable and suitable feed of this
kind. It is desirable to add a little
ollmeal or other mlllfeed to make it
"go." Sows will eat a good deal ol
clover and alfalfa even when fed dry.
When they have access to it, sows will
also eat a little corn fodder.
ANEMIA AND TENDS TO r AD
;' - ' - v
When one has an occasional head
ache it is usually due to some tran
sient or passing cause, such as indi
gestion, however, over-tiredness,
etc. When, however, one sufr
fers from frequent periodic head
aches there is always some special
reason for it. . Amoncr the most com
mon oi sucn reasons is Anemia or
moodiessness. rnis condition is es
pecially frequent amoung girls- and
young women and those whose occu
pations or habits of. life keep them too
much indoors. The one important
necessity m sucn cases is to build up
the quantity and quality of the weak
and 'watery blood. ; Gude's Pepto-
Mangan is exceptionally valuable for
this purpose. It increases the "hum
ber and improves the aualitv of the
... r x 1 .
red blood cells, thos4 vital littlt bodies
which carry nurition to all parts of
the body. It improves ' the, appetite,
imparts color to the face, and restores
health and strngth to the body gener
ally. . After a short course of Pepto
Mangan the headaches decrase in fre
quency and severitv. and finally dis
appear, if they are due to Anemia.
fi a. a- i ...
repto-mangan may De nad either m
liquid or tablet form, as - preferred.
When buying Peto-Mangan be ' sure
the name "Gude's" is on the package.
Without "Gude's" it . is "not Pepto

SYSTEM OF SHEEP FARMING
One That Is Continuously Successful
Must Not Ignore Either Mu- .

A system of sheep farming that is
to be continuously successful, can not
ignore either wool or mutton. In many
cases the two products will be worthy
of equal consideration. In others
either one may be emphasized accord
