OUST THE DEMON.
A Toggle With Coffee
There is something fairly demonia
cal in the way coffee sometimes wreaks
its fiendish malice on those who tuse it.
A tody writing from Calif, says::
"My husband and I, both lovers of
coffee, suffered for some time from a
Tery annoying form of nervousness,
accompanied by most frightful head
aches. In my own case th'ere was
eventually developed some sort o af
fection sf the nerves leading from the
spine to the head.
"I was unable to hold my head op
straight, the tension of the nerves
drew it to one side, causing me the
most intense pain. We got no relief
from medicine, and were puzzled as to
what caused the trouble, till a friend
suggested that possibly the coffee we
drank had something to do with it, and
advised that we quit it and try Pos
tum Coffee.
"We followed his advice, and from
-the day that we began to use Postum
we both began to improve, and in a
Tery short time both of us were en
tirely relieved. The nerves became
steady once more, the headaches
ceased, the muscles in the back of my
neck relaxed, my head straightened
up and the dreadful pain that had so
punished me while I used the old kind
of coffee vanished.
"We have never resumed the use of
the old coffee, but relish our Postum
-every day a well as we did the for
mer beverage. And we are delighted
to find that we can give it freely to
oar children also, something to never
dared to do with, the old kind qf cof

SOUTHERN
TOPICS OF INTEREST TO THE PLANTER.
Bermuda Onions.
Regarding culture of onions there
are four things that are very necessary
in fact, they are entirely essential to
success:
1st Genuine imported Bermuda onion
seed.
2d Plenty of fertilizer.
3d Thorpugh and constant cultiva
tion. 4th Plenty of water at the right
time.
The method used by the majority, in
fact, we think all, of the successful
growers of the States of Texas and
Florida, Is to plant about two pounds
of seed in a bed about 120 feet long
by twelve feet wide, with ten rows in
each bed twelve inches apart; the ma
jority use a garden drill for this pur
pose. These beds are made about on
a level with the land, with a small
border thrown up around each so as to
control the water.
They usually dig a ditch on the-high
part of the land so that the bed can
be easily flooded, as the water should
cover the whole bed uniformly. Water
sheuld be out on the bed as soon as the
seed are planted; they will usually
come up In about ten days.
Cultivation is usually done with a
double-wheel hoe. Water and work
again as -soon as the ground will stir
nicely. Continue every two weeks un
til ready to transplant, which is about
sixty days from the time of seeding,
Transplanting is generally done in the
months of December and January.
They are usually planted in beds the
size "of the ones used for seed, but the
plants are nut four inches apart in
drills, rows twelve inches apart.
Water and working should be kept
op exactly like you would the seed in
the seed bed until about two weeks
"before digging time. When about
three-fourths of the tops have fallen
It is time to dig.
Dig them and throw in windrows;
let sun dry from twenty-four to thirty-
six hours; cut off the tops and roots,
closely pack same in nieely slatted
crates twenty -four inches long and six
teen inches wide, seven inches deep;
this will hold about fifty pounds.
Regarding fertilizer use, a heavy ap
plication of good commercial fertilizer
broadcast "before transplanting, about
1000 pounds per acre; then another
1000 pounds put In with a drill in the
middles about February, when the
onions begin to bulb.
Ttlanure of any sort eould be used in
connection with cottonseed meal or any
other fertilizer. Do not use cottonseed
meal unless you place same In the
ground three or four weeks before the
onion is to he planted; it is entirely too
heating.
These instructions, we think, if fol
lowed closely, will insure an onion crop
where irrigation Is used. In some sec
tions of the country they are grown
without water. If they are to be
planted where water is not convenient,
they should be placed in rows twenty
five inches wide and placed three
Inches in a row to be worked with a
plow. The yield will not be near so
large, but the cost of cultivation is
less. The greatest trouble would be in
getting the seed up without water.
Tou eould, of course, Use a small bed
for growing your sets, then place them
In the field.
A man, in planting a crop of onions,
should take into consideration the price
he can get for same, and what it will
cost him to grow the crop. Of course,
any one having an irrigation plant,
or a farm located on a running stream,
can afford to grow onions at a cheaper
price than the man who has not these
facilities. Thep rice generally ranges
from S1.35 to $2 per bushel. This, of
course, is according to the production
and the condition of the market at the
time the onions are ready for shipment
The Cabbage Hair Worm.
The cabbage hair worm is the subject
of Circular No. 62, of the Bureau of
Entomology, U. S. Department of Agri
culture, the publication of which was
made necessary by numerous inquiries
in resrard to the identity and alleged
poisonous nature of a minute worm
popularly known during the years 1903
and 1904 as the "cabbage snake." The
Department says: During the former
yeax the species first attracted atten
tion, but was not considered seriously,
as it was well known that hair worms
are not in any degree polsonous-in
fact, they are perfectly harmless and
even, to a certain extent, beneficial, as
they destroy by parasitism the perm
cious codling moth and several species
of destructive grasshoppers or locusts.
In 1904, however, the subject increased
in proportion, the Bureau of Entomol
ogy frequently receiving five or six
..communications daily in regard to this
creature. In most cases these were
accompanied by clippings gleaned from
the daily press. The object of the cir
cular is mainly to facilitate the corre
. spondence of the Department, to place
the facts in the case on record and be
fore the public, and to correct errone
ous reports and mere rumors which

fARM fOTES.
STOCKMAN AND TRUCK GROWER,
have been circulated in regard to cases
of poisoning of human beings. In
only a single case was the name of the
person or persons who had been kiiled
by cabbage supposed to be infested by
this hair worm given, and the post
master of the city promptly denied any
knowledge of the facts, all efforts tnat
were made to locate the origin of the
account being without success. It may
be safely assumed that all other reports
were equally untrue or greatly exag
gerated. In fact, the entire matter was
a hoax save for the fact that the ru
mors were placed in such general cir
culation that the consumption of cab
bage was greatly curtailed, many per
sons fully believing in the'poisonous
ness of the hair worm. There is no
doubt, on the other hand, that the ma
jorty of the reports of damage to the
cabhage crop were founded on fact.
We have positive knowledge of one
of these in Tennessee where fully
eighty -five per cent, of the State's cab
bage crop was lost in 1904. Similar
losses were reported in various por
tions of Missouri, Iowa, West Virginia
and Virginia. From data at hand it
can truthfully be said that thousands
of cabbage growers incurred severe
losses on account of the unfortunate
"scare" due to the unwise circulation
of the veriest rumors.
In support of the statement which
has been made by letter by the Depart
ment of Agriculture for. the past two
years, a Dr. Louis Leroy made tests in
order to determine whether the hair
worm or "cabbage snake" possessed
any poisonous properties. The usual
laboratory animals, rabbits, guinea pigs
and domestic animals, were fed with
the worms, raw and cooked; extracts
from the haii worms were prepared,
and the animals fed with them, and the
substance was injected hypodermical
ly, the final result being reached, as
none of the animals thus treated were
affected, that the "cabbage snake" is
entirely harmless and the public ru
mors and superstitions are fallacies
without semblance of foundation.
Talk on Alfalfa.
Alfalfa thrives during drought as
no other crop does, owing to its deep
root system. I Aftei being once estab
lished no drought will ever destroy the
plants, and at the first reappearance of
rain it starts! into vigorous growth.
Alfalfa is not at all a difficult crop
to establish or grow. Once one under
stands it, no crop is easier grown.
Stands of alfalfa may be secured with
greater success than of red clover. It
is easy or at is impossible to secure
stands of alfalfa, owing to how one
sets abot iti
A rich limestone soil as dry as can
be found that is, dry in wet seasons
is the first essential. It is not, with
our present knowledge, advised that al
falfa should ' be sown away from the
limestone and blue grass region. At
all events, lime should be m tne soil,
and if not naturally there, it ought to
h added at the rate of 500 to"l500
pounds per acre; air-slaked lime will
serve, harrowed into the soil. This
sweetens it. land sweet soils are abso
lutely essential.
Next, the soil should have a depth of
at least three feet above bed rock; then
it should be naturally dry or else tile
underdrained. Don't waste alfalfa seed
on craw-fishy or wet land. It must be
dry and sound in winter.
Such soil as one naturally calls his
best should be chosen. The crop is one
that will amply repay the sowing on
the richest soil. When it is remem
bered that from three to six tons of
hay per acre will be returned from good
land and that this hay is worth nearly
as much, pound for .pound, as wheat
bran, it is easily seen that it deserves
good soil. In truth, it must have good
soil to thrive at all.
After selecting the right soil it should
be stored with vegetable matter. Coat
heavily with stable manure and break
deep. This manure may precede a crop
of corn or tobacco, or it may immedi
ately precede the alfalfa sowing. Ma
nure may be said to be absolutely es
sential to starting vigorous alfalfa in
any soil in Kentucky, or any soil east
of the Missouri River, for that matter.
It is not suflicient to alone add fertility
to the land, though that helps, and arti
ficial fertilizers strengthen young al
falfa, but it is essential to add humus
to the soil in the shape Of stable ma
nure. It matters little what sort of
manure is used.
Disadvantage of Staking.
As a rule, it is best not to stake young
trees when transplanting. If the roots
are cut short and the tree has such a
heavy top that a stake is needed, it
will meet with such a check in digging
that it will rarely recover its vigor.
Onlv Proper Spmce Needed.
With proper space to grow and
proper food and soil, trees can hardly
do otherwise than grow a good root as
well as a good top, while growth can
hardly be cUed normal if checked by
insects or fungus diseases.

of her gentleman friends, when those
young men waslgoing to choose their
coffins." But tie gem of the article
relates to Shajsjipeare himself. "The
story was wrf$en by" Shakespeare,
who married Hfiiwatha. He was born
in Venice, wher he and the merchant
shot arrows of the same fly when

TfWllEAL WIFE
1 ,
Shapes the Destiny of Men The Influence of a
Healthy Woman! Cannot Be Overestimated.
Seven-eighths of the
men In this world marry
a woman because she is
beautiful in their eyes
because she has the quali
ties whioh inspire admira
tion, respect and love.
There is a beauty in
health, which is more at
tractive to men than mere
regularity of feature.
The influence of women
glorious in the possession
of perfect physical health
upon men and upon the
civilisation of the world
could never be measured.
Because of them men have
attained the very heights
of ambition ; because of
them even thrones have
been established and de-.
stroyed.
"What a disappointment,
then, to see the fair young
wife's beauty fading away
before a year passes over
her head ! A sickly, half-dead-and-alive
woman, 1
especially tghen she is
the mother of a family,
is a damper to all joyous
ness in the home, and a
drag upon her husband.
The cost of a wife's con
stant illness is a serious
drain upon the funds of a
household, and too often all the doc
toring does no good.
If a woman finds her energies are
flagging1, and that everything tires her,
dark shadows appear, under her eyes,
her sleep is disturbed by horrible
dreams ; if she has backache, head
aches, bearing-down pains, nervous
ness, whites, irregularities, or despon
dency, she should take means to build
her system up at once by a tonic with
specific powers, such as Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound.
This great remedy for Women has
done more in the way of restoring
health to the women of America than
all other medicines put together. It is
the safeguard of woman's health.

letter from a young wife.
Mrs. Bessie Ainsley of 611 South 10th

" Ever since my child was born I have suf
