So many people think of this spray
ing' business a good deal as we used
to think of our studies at school. If
we could slide through any old way,
without working, wo were beating the
teacher just that much. And, In a
measure, this Is true with many peo
ple about spraying.
They spray because they must be
cause the fruit Inspector might raise
a row If they didn't. But, after all, If
tho rlght material la used, It is not an
expense ; ' on the contrary, every one,
nearly, who has carefully watched the
results finds In the eud they have
saVed money by the large Increase In
fruit as a result of proper spraying.
But! to get the right material that's
I the rub. Probably no concern today

What will appear very Interesting to
many people here Is the article taken
from a New York daily paper, giving
a simple prescription, as formulated
vby a noted authority, who claims that
he has found a positive remedy to
cure almost any case of backache or
kidne yor bladder derangement, in
the following simple prescription, It
taken before the stage of Bright's dis
Fluid Extract Dandelion, one-half
ounce; Compound Kargon, one ounce;'
Compound Syrup Sarsaparllla, three
ounces. Shake well In a bottle and
take In teaspoonful doses after each -
meal and again at bedtime.
t A well-known druggist here at home,
when asked regarding this pre
scription, stated that the ingredients
are all harmless, and can be obtained
at a small cost from any good prescrip-
tlon pharmacy, or the mixture would be
put up If asked to do so. He further
stated that while this prescription Is
often prescribed In rheumatic afflic
tions with splendid results, he could
see no reason why. It would not be a
splendid remedy for kidney and uri
nary troubles and backache, as it has
a peculiar action upon the kidney
structure, cleansing these most Impor
tant organs and helping them to sift
and filter from the blood the fou) acids
and waste matter whlehj cause sick
nessand suffering. Those of our read-;'
erg who suffer cai make no mistake .
