FARMEBS FORM "NEV SOCIETY
Aimsto Affiliate All Organizations for
: Action Along Lines, of Country
; : ; Life Questions. : ,
The objects outlined by ; the. ., new
constitution adopted by the Farmers
National congress in New Orleans, are
to affiliate all societies for action
along lines of .broad country life ques
tions; to aid in establishing state and
local organizations devoted to country
life; to secure co-operation among pro
ducers; to aid in general and vocation
al education of farmers., and to further
the passage and execution ' of laws
which 'Will promote country life. .
This constitution provides for two
kinds of membership. Persons may
become annual members by paying an
nual dues of one dollar; after attend
ing one annual meeting, annual mem
bers may become life members by the
payment of ten dollars, or, after at
tending four annual meetings they
may become life members upon the
payment of one dollar. Associations,
institutions and departments may be
come members and send delegates up
on payment of ten dollars for one dele-.
gate and five dollars for each addi
tional delegate. Organizations with
four to eight thousand members are
entitled to two delegates each; eight
to sixteen thousand members, three
delegates, and one additional delegate
for each additional -sixteen thousand
Each delegate has one vote, but in
dividual members from a given state
are to pool their votes and vote by
states. Each state delegation is en
titled to' as many votes in jthe annual
meeting as there are multiples of ten
thousand farms in the state. There
being something like seven million
farms In the United States, this would
provide about seven hundred votes
from all states. It is believed that
there are about fifteeu hundred coun
try life organizations which may be
considered by the council eligible to
membership; with' the additional dele
gates from large 'organizations there
may be approximately two thousand
delegates representing organizations.
This means a possible delegate body
in annual meeting with between twenty-five
hundred an3 three thousand
voting delegates, f
Besides the usual executive officers,
there is a council made up of one
member from each state, and this
council elects an executive of five
members chosen from the membership
of the council. There is also a vice
president for each state, who is chair
man of his state delegation.
It is expected the individual mem
bership will be rapidly increased to
thousands, or even-tens of thousands,
and also that most eligible organiza
tions will adhere wf Uiin a few years.
This will provide an annual budget of
some tens of thousands of dollars. The

constitution may be amended in either
of two ways. Upon a year's notice,
it can be changed by a two-thirds vote
at the annual meeting; or. after dis
cussion, at an annual meeting, it can
be amended by mail, or by return pos
tal card vote, within thirty days after
the annual meeting.
The new constitution was made at

who had been elected for a two-year
term, were retained for the ensuing
year. The president is C. F. Sanford.

r 'n an Odd Place.
Berrien Springs, Mich. The old
Berrien county courthouse at, Berrien
Springs, Mich., connected with which
there is an unusual Chicago romance,
has been advertised to be sold under
the hammer, in order to satisfy an in
debtedness that has been hanging over
it for 'some time.

which was erected in the early 30s,

After the county seat was moved
from Berrien Springs to St. Joseph the
courthouse and the Jail came into the
possession of Mrs. Julia Allen, a pret
ty young widow of the former county
seat. She became a member of a
party invited to go through one , of
the big Chicago water tunnels, and on
this trip, so the story goes, she met
Mr. Probst, and before either of them
had again saw daylight they had fall
en 'in love with each other, he pro
posed and she accepted. They were
subsequently married, and took up
their abode in the jail section of the
old county courthouse, where they
spent their honeymoon and lived hap
pily for some time.
Then came a ripple in this odd sea
of matrimony. The wife set up the
claim that her husband had hypnot
ized her into deeding him the court
house property, and there was a suit
to set aside the transfer. This suit
hung in the courts for some years,
and it had many of the angles of the
famous Jarndyce vs. Jarndyce case in
Dickens' "Bleak House," and people
began to say that there wasn't much
chance for Mrs. Probst getting judg
ment until the day of judgment or un
til the old courthouse had rotted away
from the ravages of time. But a son
of Mrs. Probst by her first marriage
ultimately effected a settlement, and
again the building passed back to the
ownership of Mrs. Probst.

"Worth mountains of gold, says one woman. Another
says, "I would not give Lydia E. Pinkham's. Vegetable

merits of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound thrown
on the sky with a searchlight so that all suffering women could
read and be convinced that there is a remedy for their ills.
We could fill a newspaper ten times the size of this with such quo
tations taken from the letters we have received from grateful women
whqse health has been restored and stuTering banished by Lydia E.

Why has Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound accomplished
such a universal success ? Why has it lived and thrived and kept on
doing its glorious work among the sick women of the world for mora
than 30 years ? ' ; .
Simply and surely because of its sterling worth. The reason no
other medicine has ever approached its success is plainly and sim
ply because there is no other medicine so good for women's ills.

increased by walking or standing on
my feet and I had such awful bearing

spirits and became thin and pale
with dull, heavy eyes. , I had six

temporary relief. L. decided to give
