I began to have-regula-r sick headache. I had used pills and tablets, but after a course of these, I would be constipated. It just seemed to tear my stomach all up. I found they were no good at all for my trouble.

MOULTON. pressing farm-labo- r problem, It should be understood that the man power of The United States food administration grain corporation of New York the country is not yet exhausted and that, except for certain lighter tasks, estimates that approximately three bushels of grain are lost in every 100 men are better adapted than women for farm labor. On account of the demands for labor in necessary industries, and because bushels threshed, because of careless methods, and believes that this amount for many years past the cities with their attractions of high wages and amuse- can be saved if every farmer in the country will follow certain simple rules ments have drawn many men from the farms, there is not now enough labor which have been outlined. If this is done, and figuring on a basis of 800,000,-00- 0 bushels of wheat for this year's crop, which government reports Indicate seeking employment to supply the demand of the farms for extra help, espeIs exceedingly probable, it means that the staggering total of 24,000,000 cially during the periods of seasonal strain for cultivating and harvesting. While much is being done by the departments of agriculture and labor bushels, worth, at $2.20 a bushel, the huge sum of 52,800,000 will be saved to mobilize man power for farming operations, much yet remains to be done to this country. And this applies to wheat alone. The saving on oats and other small grains will be in proportion. if we are to make sure the saving of the crops which have been planted. In order to Impress upon the farmers the necessity of employing more The primary responsibility must be assumed by the regions and communities most vitally affected, because no agency of government can create labor careful methods in threshing, the food administration has just created a g division, under the direction of Capt Kenneth D.

In all towns and cities an active wheat producer of Oklahoma, and has entered upon a camadjacent to agricultural regions there are many men of farm experience who can be spared for a day at a time or a week at a time, as the case may be, paign which it is hoped will bring about the desired result. It is proposed to help the farmers with their most pressing tasks. In many such towns and to carry on educational work among farmers through the medium of threshcities last year men were spared from ordinary business and industry, from ing committees which will be established in each county. These committees offices and shops, and crops were cultivated and harvested which otherwise will be composed of the county food administrator, county agricultural agent might have suffered serious loss. Such adjustments must be made this year and a retired thresherman representing the local council of defense. and undoubtedly will be made when the communities affected come into a full ;. f"i Ss,r 'tf.

Generally speaking, it will become more and more necessary I for women to take the places of men In all occupations. In addition to relieving men in towns and cities, women can actually perform many farm tasks such as dairying, vegetable cultivation, fruit gathering, etc. The precise method of utilizing women for farm labor cannot be prescribed in any uniform plan, but it will depend upon conditions in the community and upon the farms. Of course steps must be taken to see that women laborers are properly housed and otherwise are safeguarded from unnecessary hardships. Women who are not physically able to perform labor may be of great service to farmers by ascertaining their needs for labor and endeavoring to supply such needs. Organized groups of women iger to render public service might well undertake by personal visitation to make surveys of the farm-labo- r situation in their neighborhood. More helpful even than that in many places would be for some of the women of the towns and cities to take the places of their country sisters during the periods of labor, stress and actually do the housework in order that the women of the farms may help their husbands. Some of the finest of our American women are cooking and washing dishes in the hospitals of France. The women of Prance are between the plow handles. No good woman would hesitate to keep house for her sick friends for a week. It would be beautiful service if city women would keep house for country women for a little while. Of course this is not as attractive or as romantic as binding up the wounds of soldiers, but It is one of the things that must be done if the soldiers are to be fed. Threshing Scene in the Great Wheat Belt. It does not seem to be possible to work out any uniform plan of mobilizing Agriculturists, threshing machine men and others with an Intimate knowlfarm labor or of directing the employment of women on farms. The important operations, readily admit that there Is a big waste thing is to get the problem fairly before the American people and specially edge of threshing-machin- e before the community groups. When a group of Americans, whether of men in threshing operations, but ask how much of this waste can be saved, and or women, understand a problem or realize a necessity, they may be depended in what manner it can be accomplished. In answer to this, the food adminupon to solve the problem and to meet the necessity in the best possible way. istration grain corporation states that it believes 1 bushels in every 100 threshed can be saved by having all machines go into harvest in excellent repair, with ample power, and by seeing that during harvest they are sufficiently adjusted to meet varying conditions, so that a minimum of grain is Hal Chase Has Lost None blown into the straw pile ; that one bushel in every 100 threshed can be saved by having all machines in such repair that very little grain leaks under and of His Skill Around Bag; around them on to the ground, and If what does leak out in this manner, and Baserunners Know Danger.

There is peril in being a whale or a porpoise in the north Atlantic these days, according to Nelson Collins in the Century. If you are a whale, particularly a spouting whale, you are apt to' be mistaken for a submarine; and if you are a porpoise, you are apt to be taken fof a torpedo. There is many a shattered carcass and abashed gun crew. In the phosphorescence of even winter nights a porpoise just under the surface can make an experienced lookout have a moment's suspense. The line of white Is a little narrow and a little high for a torpedo, but in the first moment a lookout isn't given to exact measurements. The white at bow and stern on a phosphorescent night is conspicuous evidence of a ship, though it is a question how plain It would be through a periscope at about its own level. From the decks of the ship itself or from the deck of an emerged submarine it flashes plain. If it could only be camouflaged along with the smoke. And on such a night in the zone there is the eerie sense of more than one submarine that has worked her way along in the white wake of a slow ship, keeping tab so through the night and wait ing for dawn to sheer off and strike. That is why, as dark comes on, a destroyer is apt to drop back from the side of the ship and lurk along the wake, seeking its prey also. I remember one velvety black night. Suddenly a great white trail shot across our bow from port to starboard and just a few ySrds ahead. If a porpoise is too narrow to make a torpedo trail, this seemed too broad, but deep enough. It was the wake of a destroyer that had cut across in a hurry. Automobile Line. The Regular Line from Columbia to Campbellsville is owned and operated by W. E. Noe.

It has always seemed to me a pity that they did not give more of their time to combating his Satanic Majesty and less to denom- inational warfare. It would have been so much more to the purpose. In the beginning, these two preachers commenced firing at each other at long range. They would shoot at each other from one Sunday to the next one. Very little injury resulted from this kind of warfare to any, except the innocent bystanders, who sometimes went home to nurse their wounds. This was kept up for some time, not to the spiritual edification of the churches, or the peace of the neighborhood, for, it is human nature to take sides in a fight of almost any kind, and the spirit of the leaders spread more or less to their followers, to the disturbance of the good fellowship which had existed when the church was built. The day finally came when there was a conflict of appointments, either unintentional, or by one attempting to monopolize the day of the other. Anyway, they met and it was then close quarrels and a face to face contest. One narrator in telling of it said, "I have heard many political discussions in my day when blows and thrusts were given and taken, but the discussion that day between these good men was a little warmer in words and violent in gesticulation than any thing I have ever heard or seen MMMMMiSiM REASONABLE A PRICES W J We Now Have a Full Stock of Binders, Mowers, Rakes and and Repairs, at Reasonable Prices.

Ozrce -- -- the senate, via underground passage, with the senate office building, relates a Washington correspondent The cars of this railroad operate on a monorail by electricity. The road Is about 150 yards in length and has a double track. When one car is at one end of the track the other car is at the other end, and vice versa. The railroad was intended originally to aid senators in making speed from their offices to the senate chamber. Roll calls do not require much time in the senate and there Is danger that if a roll call is asked when a senator is In his office he will miss the roll call unless he uses the electric car. That saves him about ten or fifteen seconds' time. and warm weather and crops are making rapid progress. Most throughout the Eighth of the wheat has been stacked The banks Federal Reserve District are giving earnest and patriotic support in aid- and Mr. E. A. McKinley is going in the flotation of United States ing to start his thresher soon. The road Is open to the public and It costs nothing to ride. As a conse quence messenger boys, clerks and janitors use the railroad freely, while senators, except on days when the weather is inclement, prefer to walk in the open air between their offices and the senate chamber. Besides the initial equipment, the road entails an expense of about $30 weekly for the employ of two operators and probably half that amount for electricity. This would make a yearly expense of $3,900 as a very conservative estimate. As a matter of fact the railroad probably costs more like $6,000 or $7,000 a year. The senate has another extravagance that is almost an eyesore. This Is the palatial caucus room that cost no one knows how many thousands of dollars when the senate office building was constructed. The room is finished throughout in marble and has immense crystal chandeliers. It has the largest seating capacity of any room in the capltol except the hall of the house and the senate chamber. Yet the acoustic properties of the room are so bad that it is never used, and it stands there as an expensive monument to some one's mistake in planning the senate office building. Of course a person would ordinarily pay no attention to such a thing as bad acoustic properties, but in this room it cannot help but be noticed.

What of General Pershing, who may one day have as great an army as any? The question is asked as often in Europe as in America. It is not, I think, known in America how deep a first impression his character as man and soldier have made on the British and, indeed, the French, writes W. Beach Thomas in Harper's Magazine. When he landed In England in June, 191G, one of the British newspapers, whose correspondent had been for a long while in his presence, compared him with Moltke, who was "silent in seventeen languages." What General Pershing, the master of several Philippine dialects, said was little and good. When General Jbffre shook his hand In Paris a few weeks later a scene worthy of a great historical memorial he said to one of his staff, "General Pershing will think first and act afterwards." At all junctures the general has been cool and prompt and determined. His colonel In Cuba wrote of him, "He is the bravest and coolest man under fire I ever saw in my life." His own recorded maxims are few ; but at the most worrying crisis in France when news of the arrival of American troops was published while some of those troops were still in the danger zone at sea he said, "I do not worry, and when the day's work is over I go to sleep." the U.
