Mil. WHITMAN BS2 St. Va.Her St., Montreal. "In 1912, I was taken suddenly ill with Acute Stomach Trouble and dropped in the street. I was treated by sevoral physicians for nearly two years. I. was in constant misery from my stomach and my weight dropped down from 225 pounds to 100 Several of my friends advised me to try 'Fruit-a-uves' and I did so. That was eight mOnths ago'.. I began to improve almost with the JlrSl dose. No other medicine I ever used acted so pleasantly and quickly as 'Fruit-a-lives', and by Sioinach Trouble, and all pain and Conslipalion and misery were cured. I completely recovered by the use of !Fruit-a-tives' and now i weigh 203 pounds. I cannot praise 'Fruit-a-tives' H. WHITMAN. 50c. a G for trial size. 25c.

The analysis gives the thistle a Court value, '.vhcu cul at Hie proper Hlago hay, almost equal to alfalfa HBUBUMU of this writers urge that tlio Russian thistle shall ho used thus. Of course, when, the pest is present and the owners of land are unable to cope with it, the plan of cutting it1 and making it into hay is greatly superior to allowing it to 150 to seed, but the idea is simply prepos- terous, in ordinary farm manage- ment iL should .be given no quarter, as, In dry areas especially, it is a most and pestiferous weed. it. has-'fecding value as hay, it is not easily.harvested for such a use. .The branches spread ovi to handle, it will also graz- ing for sheep wb.en tlie plants arc young, hut its growth should never encouraged for such a use.

In suoh seasons, where it abounds, it will overshadow the grain to its great detriment and It will add greatly to the labor of harvesting. In a country where grain chiefly is sown, in such a season the injury from the presence of the Russian thistle in the crops can scarcely 'be over-stated. It is practically impossible to keep land entirely free from tills weed in an u'nfenced country, as owing to its [shape and lightness when it is dry. it will roll for miles before a driving wind anil may scatter seeds during its entire course. Even a woven wire fence of the averago height is not always a safeguard from its intrusion for it will bank up against the wind- ward side of such a fence betimes, so as to form-'an inclined plane of the thistles as high as the fence and other thistles coming later may sometimes bo blown over into the fenced area. But this happens only in extreme canes. The general fenc- ing of the land will-bring with it the possibility of destroying this weed. But even in .the afoseu.ce of fences, the case may be, and when they jt iiuiy necessary to dislodge Hi em by the use of the spade, the j hoe or by hand pulling. A field may >bc left in a clean condition at that season when cultivation usually ceases, anil later may produce this- tles ot largo size. Fortunately the germinating power of the thistles is relatively short liv- ed. do not retain this power, it is claimed, beyond two or three years. If, therefore, the plants can be kejil from re-seeding, tlie time called for 10 clean infested fields is lot long. The difficulty, however, is to prevent i'R-seediiig; nor can thf plants flourish in sod land. They may yet a foothold around the en- trance to burrows marie -by gophers and badgers, but they cannot flourish in the prairie where the sod is un- broken or in pastures that are made from lame grasses. It is in dry areas tiiat this weed is chiefly troublesome.
