FREE IFTT FAILS Your Money Back if You are nqt Satisfied with the Medicine We Recommend We are so positive that our remedyfwill permanently relieve con stipation, no matter bow chronic it inay be, that we offer to furunh the medicine at otir expense should it fall to peoducc satisfactory results. It is worse than useless to at tempt to cure constipation with cathartic drugs. Laxatives or cath artics do much harm. They cauße a reaction, irritate, and weaken the bowels and tend to make coastlpa tion more chronic. Besides, their use becomes a habit that is danger ous. Constipation is caused by a weakness of the nerves and mus cles of the large intestine or descend ing colon. To expect permanent relief you must therefore tone up and strengthen these organs and restore them to healthier activity. We want you to try Rexall Or derlies on oar recommendation. They are exceedingly ptea«ant to take, being eaten like candy, and are ideal for children, delicate per sons, and old folks, as well as for the robust. They act directly cji the nerves and muscles of the bow els. They apparently have a neu tral action on other associate organs or glands. They do not purge, cause excessive looseness, nor create any inconvenience whatever. They may be taken at any time, day or night. They will positively relieve chronic or habitual constipation, if not of surgical variety, and the myriads of assaciate or dependent cbionic ailments, if taken with re gularity for a reasonable length of time. 12 tablets, 10 cents; 36 tab lets, 25 cents; 80 tablets, 50 cents.

A yoong man of twenty starring out to accomplish thh tremendous task would be 85 1 before Le had covered the last mile j of pnblic highway in this country. i Alter an Investigation extending over many months. Logan Waller Pagt, Director ef the Office of Pub-: lie Roads, has ascertained thatj there arc now 2,199,14- miles off pobhc roadsiu the United Stares, j The figures include all the new. roads built up to the year 1909. In ' IUO4 there were exactly 2,151,379. It is apparent, therefore, that the increased mileage of new roikds within h period of about five years has been 48,266. "The Investigation just conclud ed", said Director Page, in an in terview, "shows conclusively that the movement for the improvement of public highways has obtained a firm grip on the country'- The per centage of roads which were really improved, amounted to 7.14 in 1904, while in 1909, to which year statis tics are now available, the percent age was 8.66. "It is interesting to observe the growth of improved methods in road construction. For instance, the total mileage of stone roads in rso4 wa:i 36.818, while iu 190*; it was 59,237. The total mileage of gravel roads ia 1934 was r09,90j. while in 1901) it was ouly 102,870. This decrease in gravel roads, how ever, was due to to a reclassification of roads. Many of those reported in 1904 to !>e of gravel proved to be of some other substance, while exaggerations were eliminated. "The total mileage of snr.d clay, brick, bituminous-macadam and; other improved roadsr in 1904 was 6,806, while in 1909 the ir.ilerge reached 28,372." Aim,st Lest Kis life S. A.

For 1 instance the average yield of corn ,j in North Caroliua, for the past , j forty years has bt-en a little less | than tifteen bushels per acre. The ; yields under Demonstration metli jods were as follows: In t9JB, 37 , 1 busl?els per acie; iu 1909, 40 , bushels per acre, and iu 1910 (4,- .j56 r acres) 43 bushels acre. iThe records for 1911 ure not com plete yet, but will probably be .(greater than for 1910, iiotwitli r standing the tact that a severe drought cut off the yield through j the central part of the State. r j The Demonstration" Work stands | for the growing on the farm every thing needed, there iu the way of , hoote snt»pl|er».

The organization In North Caro lina, at present, consists of a State . Agent, two District Agents, fifty ■ one local ageuts and oyer three thousand farmers conducting de , monstratioo plats averaging three I acres each. The two largest demon strations the past season were one . of forty acres of corn that produced . fifty bushels per acre and one of a hundred acres of cotton that grew , a bale and a quarter of cotton per acre. The Demonstrators are sup -1 ervised by the local agents who in . turn are instructed by District aud State Agents, i The Demonstration YVork has has hearty cooperation with the A, & M. College, the Farmers' Union ; and other progressive organizations. The Stale Department of Agricul - ttire is now cooperating finaucially . and otherwise. Local aid for the work for the present season i amounts to $15,000.00. This shows that the people are interested in the work. .
