THE FAIRMOUNT NEXTO how tney're getting along In Qh hard times." LI VI SO I'JEAK SO NERVOUS How Miserable This Woman Wat Until She Took Lydia E. Pink-ham's Vegetable Compound hurry home and marry me If ne want to. Don't say a word about the divorce to our friend Davis. I want to make him keep his distance. It is hard enough now." Before she went to bod that night she wrote a long letter to Harry and one to Abe Lincoln, thanking him for his part in the matter and teUing him of her father's death, of the payment due and of the hard times they xvere suffering. Two xveeks passed and brought no answer from Mr. Lincoln. The day before the payment came due in December, a historic letter from Tampa. Fla., xvas published in the Democrat. It xvas signed "Kohort Deming. private. Tenth cavalry." It gaxe many details of the campaign in the Everglades in which the famous scout, Harry Needles, and seven of ids comrades had been surrounded and slain. When Mr. Davis called at the iittle home In La Salle street that evening he found Him in great distress. "I throw up my hands." she said. "I cannot stand any more. We shall be homeless tomorroxv." "No, not that so long as I live," he answered. l have bought the claim. Yon can pay me when you got ready." A STORY OF THE HJILDEPSy DEMOCRACY mVING BfiOiELLER "I told Jack to let me know if could do anything to help," Samson tssured them. Late In November Mr. Lincoln went out on the circuit xxith the distin guished John T. Stuart, who had taken him into partnership. Rim's letter to him bears an indorsement on its envelope as follows: 'This letter xvas forxvnrded from. Yandalia the xxeek I went out on th circuit and remained unopened in out office until my return six xx-eeks later. A. Lincoln." The day of his return he went to Sarah and Samson with the letter. "I'll get n horse and start for Chicago tomorroxv morning." said Saju-son. "They have had n double blow. Did you rend that Harry had been killed?" "Harry killed!" Mr. Lincoln etc-claimed. "You don't mean to toll m that Harry has been killed?" "The Chicago Democrat says so, but xxe don't believe it," said Samson "Here's the article. Read it and then I'll tell you xxhy I don't think it's o." Abe Lincoln read the article. "Yc-tt see it was dated In T;irpa, November the fifth." said Samson. "Refore xxe had read that article wc had toocixed a letter from Harry dated Xoxombor the seventh. In th.e letter he says lie i all right and I calculate that he ought to know much about it as anyone." "Thank Col! Then k's a mistake.' said Lincoln. "Wo can't afford to loe Harry.

"If you'll let me take the note I'U see xxhat can be done to get the money." Samson answered. "Say. I'll tell ye," Primstead went on.

A Fif 1 'x V"' ' Pcsse MARKET REPORTS AID TRADE Government Helps Farmer by Giving Out Information Regarding Supplies and Pric-ss. lPrrpid by th tTnltPd Slat-'a Drpartmrnt ot Ariculturf-.) In a strict sense there can he no such thing as a "fair trade"' xvhen either party has the advantage of vastly superior information. Vp to the time the bureau of markets and crop estimates of the United States Department of Agriculture xvas established most transactions in the marketing of farm products xvere, in this sense, unfair. This xvas due to the fact that the buying side almost invariably had vastly better infornta-tlon regarding supplies, both available and prospectix-e. future production, prices current throughout the country, and probable movements of the products. riaolnsr the farmer on the same footing with the buyer, so far as information is concerned, so that the element of chance applies equally to both, is th.e aim of the Department of Agriculture. For this, it gathers every available scrap of Informal ion relating to supplies, current quotations, and other fundamental conditions influencing markets, arranges the information in readable form, ami makes It readily available to everyone having use of It. j Refore the department took up this work, the farmer xvas not wholly xxith out market reports. Newspapers, trad1 journals, telegraph eompanie and many other organizations, as xvell as individuals, distributed in the jural districts reports that purported to he market information. Unfortunately for the farmer, hoxvever, many of thee reports originated xxith buyers tf farm produce, or front sources controlled or dominated by such interests. Under these circumstances it xvas but natural that they redounded to the advantage of the buyer and almost invariably worked to the financial handicap of the farmer and producer. The department's reports are ttoxx being made use of by practically all classes of people farmers, commission merchants, boards of trade, brokers, chambers of commerce, retail dealers, and consumers. Most persons xvho hax-e come its touch xvith tl-e xxork ef Government lnspcct;ns emment's Unbiased ports Guide Farmsra to Best Advantage. Cattle Gov-Market Rein Marketing the department realize that it neither ( buys nor sells any commodity and has j no interest to serve except mat or accuracy. The xvh.oh purpose of its xxork is to hold a mirror before the markets of the country and to hold It at such an angle that all the people may see what is taking place at the moment. KEEP HORSES IN COr.DITION Farmer Makes a Mistake in Not Using Animals Off and On During the Winter. It Is a shame to take a irood horse from pasture and put him into the collar before a ploxx-, moxxer, reaper, or other heavy draft Implements xxithout his havlns; been hardened to it first. In the main this is the reason for so many sore necks, added of course to the poor-tit tins collars.

At any rate they should be used Ivefore a wagon, manure spreader, or at some light work for some time before hard work starts. Be sure the collar fits. No collar pad is needed If the collar fits.

Pumpkins can be groxrn at a small cost and form a valuable addition to the rations of hops. They may be grown In the corn fields, especially where there Is a poor stand. The value does not He entirely in-thetr nutritive composition, but Is due largely to the, beneficial effects on the digestive tract, as they tend to regulate the bowels. It Is asserted that " the seeds arc vslttable as a vermifuge. j i I j Toomsboro, Ga. "I suffered terribly v?ith backache and headache all the time, was so weak and nervous I didn't know what to io. and could not do my work. My trouble was deficient and irregular periods. I read in tho Eapers what Lydia L Pinkham'a Vegetable Compound had done lor others and decided to give it a trial. I got good results from its use so that I am now able to do my work. I recommend your Vegetable Compound to my friends who have troubles similar to mine and you may use these facts n.3 a testimonial." Mrs. CF. Phillips, Toomsboro, Ga. Weak, nervous women make unhappy homes, their condition irritates botn husband and children. It has been said that nine-tenths of the nervous Erostration, nervous despondency, "the lues, " irritability and backache arise from some displacement or derangement of a woman's system. Mrs. Phillips Jetter clearly shows that r.o other remedy is so successful in overcoming this condition as Lyr'ia E.
