Seeds that Grow Must be Fresh The importance of planting partlen seeds that are unques tionably fresh, can hardly be overestimated, and this is a point that should be considered by every gardener. Fresh seeds germinate quick er, and begin growing with more vigor than seeds two or three seasons old. Fresh seeds give better stands and greater vegetable crops than inferior sorts. Th y save the trouble and expense of replanting, the loss of favorable seasons, and sometimes the entire loss of your garden. It is an easy matter to buy seeds that are absolutely fresh, and if you buy from us, results in your garden are practically assured. Our plan of buying and selling seed is exceedingly simple but very efficient. 1. We buy all needs in bulk from the best growers in Amer ica. 2 We put them up into pack ages right in our own store. This allows us to see to it that our seeds are never mixed with old, and by the saving effected enables us to give more liberal quantity of seed in each paper, 3. We never under any cir cumstances sell old seed for fresh or mix left over seed with the new crop. Customers can depend implic itly on the absolute truth of each of these statements. We have built up a splendid seed business by rigid adherence to our policy of selling only fresh seeds, and we could not afford to lose the confidence of our trade for the sake of a little ex tra profit made by the sale of inferior grades. We are particularly anxious to secure customers who have never tried our seeds. We are practically certain that old cus tomers who have assured them selves of the superior advantages we offer will remain with us, but we want business that has been going out of town, or cus tomers who have been buying from general stores and other dealers in commission seeds. We are sure they will be better satisfied and will grow better gardens from our seed than heretofore. Holt $ Cates Dr. Anderson, Dentist, Salbide j Dr. A. C.

The fact Hint intestinal discuses, such ns typhoid fever, cholera, dysen tery. diarrhea and so forth, are com monly transmitted through contami nated water makes it seem advisable to print a word of warning regarding the use of domestic water filters. The most efficient method of purify ing contaminated water supplies on a large scale is by means of sand filter beds In which the water percolates very slowly through a layer of Ilia* sand several feet in thickness. Cities that have installed such plants report a great Improvement in their health statistics. Knowledge of tile danger to be apprehended from the water sup ply has become so widespread, how ever, that domestic filters intended to be used by the individual householder have come into general use. These are of numerous varieties and employ many different substances as the filtering medium, such us charcoal, sand, mineral wool, uuglazcd clay or porcelain and so forth. These may np pour to be very useful, owing to their ability to remove a certain amount of coloring matter and flouting materials, but as usually employed they fall far short of the necessary degree of elli- Charlos Ad tuns, of West Point, olom '- T 1 "" 1 »>«>’ >'*■ '“reedy a , , , , „ , source of added danger apart from the was the guest last > undiiy of Ml • j fni K „ sense of security they inspire.
