Leg weakness Is due to chicks Im
comlng heavy rapidly, so that the
u-i.lulit nf their ImmI v Is too much for
their legs. This Ih not always an alarm
ing condition, for It denotes that the
chh.'ks are growing fast, and If careful
ly guarded and fed properly they will
pull through all right. The causo
arises from hoavy foodlng nnd forcing,
which carries the chicks forward so
rapidly as to causo the legs to fall.

Professors Htewart and Atwood, of
tho West Virginia Experiment Station,
last year conducted some careful tests
to determine whether it Is profitable to
feed milk cows grain on grass. With
out going Into the details of these ex
periments we quoto tho conclusions an
"This experiment clearly shows thai
there was no direct financial gain In
feeding tho grain to the cows wbllo at
pnBture. It Is true that tho cows
which received grain were uniformly
In somewhat better flesh than those
that did not receive grain, but as far
ns the milk yield was concerned tho
Increased flow was produced, at an nc
f "Hi loss." Data obtained In similar
experiments at other stations are sum
mnrlzcdand from these In comparison
with their own investigations the au
thors concludo "that unless dairy prod
ucts are especially high In price It Is
not a profltnblo practice to feed grain
to cows at pasture. It Is true that more
milk Is obtained nnd the cows hold up
their yield better and remain In belter
flesh when receiving the grain rations,
but under ordinary circumstances there
Is no direct profit from the grain feed
ing, ns the Increased production usual
ly costs more than It can be sold for."

Tho hog raisers of Kansnfl station
made a test to show what kind of a
hog growH the best meat The weights
of hams In the test wero as follows:
Herkshlre hams, 23V6 pounds; Dome-Jersey,
Chinas, 25V6 pounds. These hogs in
slzo wero as near the same weight as
possible to get them. The shoulders
of the Hcrkshlrcs weighed 211d
pounds; Duroe-Jerseys, lOi pounds
and Polatid-Chluns, l!)'j pounds. Tlio
lierkshlres have larger shoulders than
tho other breeds.
Tho butcher who snw tho hogn
slaughtered thought the Duroc-JerBcy
had the most fat on tho back ; the I'o-land-Chlna
next, then the Herkshlre.
The Herkshlre ham showed more lean
and less fat than the Poland-China.

When bad blood h caused from an infection of the circulation by tho
virus of Contagious Blood Poison, it usually shows in the form of ulcerated
mouth and throat, copper-colored splotches on the body, swollen glands in
the groin, falling hair, sores and ulcers, etc. These general symptoms,
affecting all parts of the body, show how deeply poisoned the blood
becomes, and emphasizes the dangerous character of the trouble. If allowed
to remain in the system the disease will finally wreck the health and break
down the strongest constitution. No medicine can cure Contagious Blood
Poison which does not rid the circulation of every particle of the virus.
S. S. S. is the one real and certain cure; it goes down to the very bottom of
the trouble, and by removing every trace of the poison, and adding rich,
healthful qualities to the blood, forever cures this powerful disorder. S. S. 8.
is the most reliable of all blood purifiers, and its concentrated ingredients of
healthful vegetable extracts and juices especially adapt it to curing this
Insidious trouble. Write for our home treatment book, which is a valuable
aid in the treatment of the different stages of the disease, and ask foe any
special medical advice you wish. No charge for either.

IjTFANT M0ETALITT is something frightful We can hardly realize that of
all the children born in civilized countries, twentytwo per cont., or nearly
one-quarter, die before they reach one yearj thirtyseven per cent., or more
than one-third, before they are five, and onehalf before they are fifteen !
We do not hesitate to say that a timely use of Oastoria would save a ma
jority of these precious lives. Neither do we hesitate to say that many of these
infantile deaths are occasioned by the use of narcotic preparations. Dropsj tincturea
and soothing syrups sold for children's complaints contain more or less opium, or
morphine. They are, in considerable quantities, deadly poisons, In any quantity
they stupefy, retard circulation and lead to congestionssiclmess, death. Oastoria
operates exactly the reverse, but you must see that it bears the signature of
Ohas. H. Pletcher. Oastoria causes the blood to circulate properly, opens the
pores of the skin and allays fever.
Letters from Prominent Physicians
addressed to Chas. H. Fletcher.
Dr. A. P. Peeler, of St Louis, Mo., says: "I havo prescribed your Castoria
In many cases and havo always found ft an efficient and speedy remedy."
Dr. B. Down, of Philadelphia, Pa., says: "I have prescribed your Cas
toria In my practice for many years with great saUsfactlon to myself and.
Jbeneflt to my patients."
Dr. Edward Parrlsh, of Brooklyn, N. T., says: "I havo used your Cas
toria la my own household with good results, and havo advised several
patients to use it for its mild laxatlvo effect and freedom from harm."
Dr. J. B. Elliott, of New York City, says? "Having during tho past Blx
years prescribed your Castoria for infantile stomach disorders, I most
heartily commend its use. Tho formula contains nothing deleterious
to tho most delicato of children."
Dr. C. G. Spraguo, of Omaha, Neb., says: "Your Castoria is an ideal
modicine for children, and I frequently prescribe it "While I do not adve
cato the indiscriminate uso of proprietary medicines, yet Castoria Is an.
exception for conditions which arise In tho care of children."
Dr. J. A. Parker, of Kansas City, Mo., says: "Your Castoria holds the
esteem of tho medical profession in a manner hold by no other proprie
tary preparation. It Is a suro and reliable medicine for infanta and ch
dron. In fact, it is tho universal household remedy for infantile ailments."
Dr. II. F. Merrill, of Augusta, Mo., says: "Castoria is ono of the very
finest and most remarkable remedies for infants and children. In my
opinion your Castoria has Bayed thousands from an early grave. I can.
furnish hundrods of testimonials from this locality as to Its offlcloncy
Dr. Norman M. Geer, of Cleveland, Ohio, Bays: "During tho last tweTvei
years I have frequenUy recommended your Castoria as ono of tho best
preparations of the kind, being safe in tho hands of parents and very ef
foctlvo In relieving children's disorders, whlio tho easo with which bucU
a pleasant preparation can bo administered is a great advantage."
