Other plaoss It is scattering and looks a little
sick. While In other fields It has yet to be
scratched and harrowed for Id short baa to
be helped oat of the ground. Where good
stands are. It Is being ploughed and ohopped
out. Wheat still looks the worse for tbe
rust, and will be almost a failure In many
sections. Home farmers ^re now cutting It
down and feeding It to their stock.
Oats have taken a new growth slnoe tbe
showery weather, and promise a fair crop.
Tbe corn looks small, not having tbe lre?h
color It should have, bat slnoe tbe few warm
days It looks better, It Is being worked and
Farmers are In better spirits and are rushing

farmers would get tbe same "move" on tbem
all tbe year that tbey have now, tbelr profits
would be Increased at least 25 per cent.

the people fori tbe 'County Falr.'r If settled
formers can arrange now tor the future much
can be done to keep our beautiful city alive,
if her citizens will awake from tbelr lethargy
and get a move on them. Let those In charge
pat on their thinking caps and do about, and
we will yet be awakened.

WATER, ELIXIR OP LIFE. !

r simply because we are impelled to do '
so by the sense of thirst, without con'
sidering its necessity in the mainteu
ance of health. Yet all thoughtful
1 medical men must agree with the
, well-known dietician, who says that
. "drinking not enough water is the
greatest and most common of dietetic
[ errors." To fully understand why
) the omission of a liberal amount of
drinking water is so grave a crime
) against the laws of health we must
i understand what water can do in the
prevention of disease ; and to realize
' thle fully we*must know the function
> of drinking water in health.
1 A most sclen<ific and discriminat1
ing professor in physiology asked his
t advanced class the chief use of water
to the body, and he was well satisfied
' with the simple and practical answer,
I "to wash the body out." The "in1
ternal bath" is far more essential to
health than the "external bath," just
- as muco more lmporiaai as me id- ,
temal organs are to it than the skin,
[ and it must be obvious that for cleansing
tbeBe organs, pure, clean water is
There is a perpetual water famine
in most human systems, a condition
1 of things to which is accorded the
1 responsibility of the sad faot that the
delicate flower of human youth and
i beauty so soon fade away. The most
amateurish gardener needs no Jessons
on the value of water for the welfare
of his plants, but few indeed are the
| keepers of the priceless blossoms of
human life who realize the necessity
' for the same delicious draughts of
supporting vitality. Women in particular
abhor the simple glass of water,
sipping tea, cupful after cupful, doting
| upon their breakfast coffee, but of
i water quaffing not a drop for days,
even in summer; preferring the
sugary pleasures of the soda counter to

low of refreshing water.
The correct adequate performance of
every function or the body depends
upon the quantity and quality of
water taken into the system daily. If
the water is scanty or impure, every
organ is retarded, tbe free circulation
of tbe blood through the microscupio
capillary tubep, one of life's most important
processes, is seriously interfered
with, the depurtation through various
organs and channels of excretion
and secretion impeded. Hence a slow
certain poisoning; of tbe system ensues.
Water, while continually passing
from the body, always carries with it c
more or less waste, worn-out poisonous
matter, which constantly generate In
tbe system, as well as Injurious
particles introduced from without.
Every expelled breath is luden with
watery vapor containing impurities.
Insensible perspiration thrown off
with countless impure particles passes
out through the skin. The same is
true of the kidDeys aod other channels
of elimination, the vehicle for cleans- n
ing any part of the body being always
water. The process is similar to that
of cleansing a spoiled sponge, the
thoroughness being proportionate with
the quantity and purity of the water,
the rapidity also dependiug on the
same factors. a
As a nutritive factor water plays an L
equally important role in the system. ,
The fact that it constitutes nearly J1

alone positive proof of this statement.
Blood contains 80 per cent of water. C
muscles 75 per cent, brain nearly 8u g
per cent, gaatric juice 97J per cent,
saliva 99A percent, bones 13 percent,
and even "the teeth 10 per cent. In- sufficient
water supply, therefore,
means a lack everywhere in the constitution
which water alone can furnish.
Pure water also makes most power- o

"A man is as old as his arteries," is
:he dictum of a renowned French
physiologist. Now what is it that
makes the arteries old ? Blood vessels',
young and healthy, are extensively
elastic, permitting the btyod to
sirculate through them freely. But
In old age they become hard and unyielding,
with diminished capacity
and a smaller blood stream flowing
through with leas swmnees. xnis i
change is effected by the deposits in I
the blood cells, with the walls of1
blood vessels, of fibrinous and gelatinous
substances, lime and other
earthly compounds contained in the
food taken into body.' This deposit is
apt to occur in the densest structures
of the system, in the joints, in the
tendons, In the muscles, in every
organ and tissue of the body; in short,
wherever the blood circulates, heart,
lungs, digestive tract, organs of secretion
and excretion, brain and nerves,
everywhere clogging the vital machinery,
impairing the action of one and
ill, and hastening the time when the
human machine ceases to act. Nature
provides a solvent for the plants
and vegetable life with rata water,
the next greater solvent after distilled
water. It percolates through the
arth, and iD its course dissolves and I
absorbs various organic and i' organic
substances with which it comes in
jontact. In the same way water
taken into the system as food and
irink circulates into the minutest
parts of the body, disoslves, absorbs,
and carries out with it the unused and
waste tissues, orgauic and mineral
matters which poison and impede the
action of the system. It purifies blood
and tissues, washes away all the poisons
which produce rheumatism, gout,
congestion of the liver, kidneys and
