The profit of a gold mine depends,
not on the amount of roek crushed
under the stains but upon the amount
of gold which can be extracted from
the roek. In a similar way the value
of the food which is eaten does not
depend on the quantity which is taken
into the stomach but upon the amount
of nourishment extracted from it by
the organs of nutrition and digestion.
When these organs are diseased they
fail to extract the nourishment in suf
ficient quantities to supply the needs
of the several organs of the body, and
these organs cannot work without nour
ishment. The result is heart "trouble,”
liver “trouble," and many another ail

They are making the best manipu

I am shiping car loads of these
goods to many towns in Middle

appreciate these goods from the
fact that they can be distributed
through Gantt distributors, which
are now used extensively all over
Georgia, much more easily and
evenly than any blood or tankage
goods can be. I feel that every

as every farmer in Monroe county
