   Finally, there's an advertisement in the 1934 Southern Planter for a product that is still around today! 
   It's Bag Balm!
   The advertisement reads, "A rapid healer - quick relief for caked udder!  Ointment protection and healing .liniment penetration.  At the first sign of trouble, apply Bag Balm, the double-action healer. Caked Bag, inflammation and the many ills and injuries common to udders and teats find effective relief and quick aid to healing - often between milkings.  Bag Balm is a clean, refined ointment that cannot taint milk, compounded with an exclusive, penetrating oil that carries the medication to the tender tissues.  Keep it handy for all emergencies.  Big 10-ounce package 60 at stores!"
   If you can find Bag Balm today, it's marvelous for your hands and skin! 
   Another page begins, "Use horses for economical power.  They live off the farm.  They restore soil fertility!"
   "No sore shoulders for me," says Grover C. Bowen, Rt. 1, Hillsboro, Texas. Mr. Bowen uses collar pads.  Here's why.  He says: "By always keeping pads for my teams, I am assured of snug fitting collars and no sore shoulders."
   There's nothing that will slow up a horse or mule more quickly than a sore shoulder.  Galls and sore shoulders are caused by ill-fitting collars.  The Ta-Pat-Co brand horse collar pads shape themselves to the horse's neck.  They prevent rubbing and chafing.  They absorb sweat.  It's good business to use Ta-Pat-Co Collar Pads.and the cleaner the pads, the better.  So, start out the season with a fresh pad.  Better still, have two for each animal and alternate them. They'll last longer and do more good..
   It's economy to buy good pads whether filled with regular stuffing or genuine deer hair.  Ta-Pat-Co Pads are made from excellent quality drill.  Stuffing is specially prepared.  Hooks are fastened by wire staple and felt washer attachment, a special Ta-Pat-Co development.
   You may write for a free booklet, "Make more money with horses and mules."  It's 48 pages.  Authoritatively written by experts.  Contains timely, useful information on horses as against tractors; multiple hitches, care of horses and mules; utilizing land taken out of production; reducing costs; etc.  Mail coupon for free copy.
   You may also "Enjoy a 4-Star Hotel in New York!"  For business it's one block from Times Square, 3 blocks from 5th Avenue, underground passageway to all subways.  For dining, 3 restaurants to choose from - coffee room, tavern grill, main dining room.  Breakfast from 30.  Luncheon from 65.  Dinner from 85.  For recreation.69 fine theatres within 6 blocks, 1 block from Broadway.4 short blocks to Madison Square Garden.  For quiet sleep.32 stories of fresh air and sunshine high above the street noises.  1400 large rooms...each with bath (tub and shower), servidor and radio.  (Does anyone know what a "servidor" is?)  Single from $2.50.  Double from $3.50.  Special rates for longer periods.  Hotel Lincoln, 44th to 45th Streets at 8th Avenue, New York.
   In the Want Ads section, I found an ad that honestly and really says, "Want to buy Kudzu roots!  Write stating quantity and prices.  L. N. Manley, Montvale, Va."
   Crocheters, embroiders wanted!  Send stamped envelope.  Bessie King, Elkton, Ky.
  Men wanted to learn barbering!  Write for monthly rates.  We assist our graduates in securing employment.  Shuford Barber College, 116 North 3rd St., Richmond, Va.
   How about, "147 acres of Shenandoah Valley land, 40 acres of it rich river bottom.  Ten dollars per acre.  Charles L. Crane, Charles Town, Jefferson County, West Virginia."
   Finally, for this time, on the back page of the 1934 Southern Planter is an ad for "The greatest formula book of modern times - new revised edition now ready.  Henley's Twentieth Century Book of Recipes, Formulas and Processes..10,000 trade secrets, practical recipes, chemical processes and money making formulas.  Price $4.00 prepaid to any address.
