Head Toward the Fngino.
Those who wish to avoid catching
cold when sleeping in a sleeping car,
says an exchange, should have their
berths made np so that their heads
will be toward the engine. This is
because the drafts in a moving train
are always from front to rear, and
when your head is toward the engine
you are much better protected, while
getting just as much fresh air as
though you were in the other position.

"I have been troubled for the past
two years with falling of the womb,
leucorrhcea, pains over my body, sick
headaches, backache, nervousness and
weakness. I tried doctors and various
remedies without relief. After taking
two bottles of your Vegetable Com

Mrs. HENRY DORR, NO. 806 Findley St.,

"For a long time I suffered with
chronic inflammation of ' the womb,
pain in abdomen and bearing-down
feeling. Was very nervous at times, and
so weak I was hardly able to do any
thing. Was subject to headaches, also
troubled with leucorrhcea. After doc
toring for many months with different
physicians, and getting no relief, I had
. given np all hope of being well
again when I read of the great good
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com

using three packages of Sanative Wash
I can say I feel like a new woman. I
deem it my duty to announce the fact

j: FOR WOMAN'S BENEFIT.1
Altliongh, perhaps, not "the most
excellent thing in woman" (that honor
having been accorded to "the low,
sweet voice"), yet, certainly, an at
tractive thing in woman is. a graceful,
pretty walk. The great fault with
English girls is that they walk too
stiffly, and they take too long strides.
The French and Spanish women both
know how to walk well. They walk
naturally, too. Quick, short steps
are to be avoided, just as well as iso
loug strides. It is the medium here,
as almost everywhere else, -that is
"happy." Dancing lessons av3 a more
valuable aid to this end than would
be commonly supposed.
Shirt "Waist Strliis Tlc.
Some of the newest string ties to be
worn with shirt waists are about a
foot longer than usual. These are
mostly ribbons, but they ave of th*
narrower widths. They are tied in a
regular bowknot in front, but wound
twice around the collar first, in the
same way as the wide ribbons so much
in vogue. The wider ribbons, how
ever, ave tied like a four-in-hand, or,
if tied once, a tiny little finger ring
is slipped ur, close to the top and
pinned securely at the back to the tie.
All kinds of set rings aie used in the
same way. This ia in imitatiou of
men's scarf rings, which come into
fashion occasionally for a short time
and then vanish again.-New York
Lace Waists and Jackets.
Lace is being used for waists and
jackets to au extent that has not been
the fashion for a great many years. It
is combined with all sorts of material,
and in ways that at ona time would
have been thought too eccentric to be
possible. The heavier kinds of lace
ave more used than they were-iu:
deed, the body of the waist is almost
always of a guipure or Irish point, or
some such lace.

Woman and Mouse.
It is an old, old story to accuse
?vomankiud of cowardice where the
mouse is concerned. But the oft-re
peated charge that any woman will
immediately go into hystevics or
spasms at the mere sight of a small
sized vodent is an insult to the sex.
Some may evince their dislike of
mice in this way, but there ave notable
and conspicuous exceptions. Por ex
ample, one woman, while engaged in
her domestic duties, encountered a
mouse in the flour barrel. Now.most.
women, under similar civcumstahces,
j would have tittered a few genuine
shrieks and then sought safety iu the
garret, but this one possessed move
than the ordinary degvee of genuine
courage. She summoned the man
servant and told him to get the gun,
call the dog and station himself at a.
convenient distance. Then she clam
bered half way upstairs and com
menced to prfnch tho flour barrel with
a pole. Presently the mouse made its
appeavance and started across the
[ floor. The dog at once went in - pur
suit. The mau fired and tho dog
dropped dead; the lady tainted and
fell downstairs, aud the man, think
ing that she was killed and fearing
that he would be arrested for the mur
der, disappeared and hus not been
seen since. The mouse escaped.

Tho Layman's Tip,
To illustrate tho kind of lapse ot
reasoning power from which great in
ventors are known to suffer, like that
under influence of which Sir, Isaac
Newton cut one hole in a wall to let a
ca-t pass through and then a small
hole for the kitteu, an old story in the
life of S. F. B. Morse has been re
vived. Long before he invented the
telegraph Morse was known to t?e
officers of the pateut oflice as a persis
tent applicant for patents. When
his great invention of "distance writ
ing" was about completed he wanted
the Baltimore & Ohio Railway com
pany to try it. To get rid of him the
president of the road turned him over
to a surbordinate. This official was
struck with the beauty of the inven
tion and became so interested in it
that he sat up half the night discus
sing it with its inventor. At length
Morse confessed there was only one
thing which baffled him. "As long
as the railroad runs," he said, "where
poles may be erected, it will be easy
sailing, but when we come to the big
bridges, what is to be done then? We
can't erect pole's across the stream, and
without them the wire would sag and
perhaps break from its own weight. I
confess I don't know what to do.
Can't you suggest a way out of the
"Why don't you fasten the wires to
the bridge?" asked his companion,
without a moment's hesitation. For
a moment Morse gazed at him with
open mouth, and then' exclaimed:
"Why not, indeed? Why, I never
thought of that. It's the very way."
The layman's tip put the finishing
touch to the great work of the great
inventor, and thus wires came to be
strung on bridges when crossing large
Electric Torpedo Boats.
Among the advantages to be looked
for in electric torpedo boats are- the
lack of flaming funnels aud noisy ma
chinery to give notice of approach,
freedom of risk from cut steam pipes
or wrecked boilers, diminished upper
works to serve as a target and ease
and rapidity of manipulation by the
commander with one hand on the con
troller. A writer in the Electrical
World suggests the possibility of pri
mary batteries. For a 140-foot boat,
with a displacement of 110 tons, en
giues of 2000 horse-power are neces
sary to give a speed of 25 knots, and a
weight of 75 tons is all that could be
allowed for batteries and motors.
Four motors of 500 horse-power each
would.weigh about 12 tons. This
would permit the carrying of 200
cells consisting of 13 zinc plates 18
incheo square and 12 plates of like
size of copper oxide compressed on
copper with an electrolyte solution of
strong caustic alkali. Glass jars of
19 inches cube, with water-tight cov
ers, would contain the elements. If
such battery would work satisfactorily
it should drive the vessel at full speed
for one hour, or about 100 miles at 10

Boiled Apples for Pl ss.
It is far bettor to cook fallen tipples
with pieces of pumpkin, beets, Carrots
and other vegetables from the garden
than to feed them to pigs raw. Then
if some meal or wheat middlings is

eaten, but will fit the pig for the

Pl ops Drilling for Grain?
One of the troubles in drilling grain
is that unless this seed is put ia deeper
than it Bhoald be, there is onlVaBmall
auioUUt of dry soil dropped over it?
and this is made so loose that Some
times when dry weather follows, the
grain does not get moisture enough to
germinate it. Sometimes the whble
surface is rolled down; But this
covors the seed mitch too deeply? To
obviate this, au attachment to the
drill has beeu devised, *which is a

Setting Pout? in the Fall.
It is often difficult to dig post holes
in the fall because the ground is then
much dryer aud harder than it usually
is in the spring. But this is offset on
very wet land by the fact that the post
hole dug in spring often strikes veins
of water one or two feet deep, which
prove that tho land needs thorough
underdrainiug before any post fence
eau be depended on. If the post is
set in thc fall it is difficult to so pack
the soil around it that much water
from winter rains will not sink down
through the loosened earth, and this
freezing in winter will lift the post
one or two iuches each winter, until
it will fall over from the weight of top
and tho slight hold the posi has in
the soil. When ftost once begins to
raise a post it will not stop until it
has lifted tho post put unleBs it is re
set. Under the post lifted up is a
vacaut space which each fall fills with
water and freezes. Sometimes when
a feuce is made and the posts seem to
be rising each winter, tho farmer goes
beside the fence with a low wagon, on
which he stands so as to strike all the
heavier blows on the top of the post
to drivo it down. In our experience
spriu^-aet posts are least likely to be
heaved out in winter, and if post holes
are dug iu spring they will show
plainly where underdrains are needed.
The post hole three feet deep will
often show springs of water on high
land that has somehow been always
cold and thin, but because it was high
land was not often thought to be in
need of underdraiuing.-American
The matter of feeding calves would
seem to be no trick at all; but really
the health of the calf depends upon
the way it is fed. Some calves, like
infants, are small and puny, while
others are strong and hearty. The
puny calf should be allowed to run
with the cow a couple of days before
trying to feed it; but the stroLg calf,
after sucking once, .may be safely
taken away from the cow and fed. It
should be given fresh milk until it
has well learned the manner of .drink
ing, wheu milk may be skimmed after
stauding twelve hours. It should be
warmed to the temperature of cows'
milk when first drawn.
When first trying to teach the calf
to drink, put two fingers iu his mouth
and with the right hand gently push
his head into the pail. It is natural
for calves to look up for their milk,
and this seems to be the most difficult
part iu teaching them to driuk. After
they begin to suck the fingers and
draw the milk, the fingers may be
gradually withrawn from the mouth.
Most calves will learn to drink in a
coupl? of days, but once in a while
there will be a stubborn one, and al
though it seems most cruel they have
to be starved to it. *
A tin or galvanized pail is better to
feed calves in than wood. They are
lighter and easier to handle, may be
kept clean with much less work, and
when ono wishes to warm the milk it
may be poured into the pail and set on
the back part of the Btove until warm
snough, When milk is warmed in
cans or pane, it sometimes so adheres
ko them that lt io almost iupossiblt to
get them clean enough to hold milk
again. -Agricultural Epitoniist,
l? the cases of climbing or running
or pillar roses the encl desired is as
great an amount of bloom as the plants
are capable of bearing. Such plants
are, as a rule, strong growers, and if
the soil fertility is kept up they are
capable of producing aa immense
number of good blooms; Perfection^
of form and largd size of bloom is not
a direct bbject,as ia the case of hybrid
perpetu?is, hybrid teas and hybrid

ever, the gardener or pruner must use
his judgment in regard to the capacity
of the plant? Knowing the plant to
be of a vigorous Variety, aud in good
condition., as shown by the growth of
wood of the previous year, it is safe to
assume that it will be able to carry
nearly as much bloom as can set on
the strong canes and shoots of the
last year's growth; It is always to be
understood that *.h? soil fertility is

Discussing Dr. Morrison's suoces?
in Pekin in his capacity as Times oor
respondent, the London correspond
ent of the Manchester Guardian says
it has surprised no oue who knows
how busiuess is trausncted in the Ya
mens in Pekin, and indeed all over
China. It is done more or less coram
populo. The Yam'en ministers, each
with his servants,, sit at small ebony
tables, the foreign minister sitting at
another. The large hall in which the
meeting takes place contaius a num
ber of screens behind which sit secre
taries, scribes, and the like, who
record the conversation that takes
place, and in an hour official Pekin
knows all about it. All tho legations
have officials in the Ynmenin their
pay, who report everything that takes
place to them, give them copies of
dispatches., telegrams, forthcoming
imperial decrees, important secret
memorials., and the like. Any one
who knows the very single and unso
phisticated methods of corruption
prevalent among Chinese oificials and
who is ready to pay the price can get
all this information as well as the
legations, and Dr. Morrison has
availed himself of this state of things
as well as tho foreign representatives
in Pekin. To complniu, as the for
eign office did, of the disclosure of the
Talieuwan negotiations as unpatriotic
conduct on the part of the correspond
ent was ridiculous. ( Every minister
in Pekin knew nil about it, and through
the same chaunel as the correspond
ed, whose merit is that he has been
the first to avail himself for newspaper
purpos s of sources of information ac
cessible to every intelligent anti adroit
man who will spend the money in ac
Lord Coleridge's Umbrella Decision.
The law as to umbrellas was settled
once for all by Lord Coleridge in a
leading English cause. His lordship
"Umbrellas, properly considered,
are a part of the atmospheric or me
teorological condition, and, as suoh,
' there can be no individual property
right in them. In Sampson vs.
Thompson defendant wao charged
with standing on plaintiff's front steps
during a storm and thereby soaking
,u]j a large quantity of rain to which
plaintiff was entitled. But thc court
held that the rain was any mau'srain,
no matter where it fell. It followed,
therefore, that the umbrella is any
man's umbrella. In all ages rain and
umbrellas have gone together, and
there is no reason why they should be
separated by law. An umbrella may,
under certain circumstances-the chief
of which is possession-take on the
attributes of personal property, just
as if a man set a tub and catch a quan
tity of rain water, that rain water will
be considered as his personal beloug
ing while it is in his tub. But if the
sun evaporate tho water and it is rained
down again, or if the tub be upset and
the water spilled, the attribute of
personal ownorship disappears. So,
if a man hold his umbrella in his hand
it may be considered a personal be
longing, but the moment it leaves his
hand it returns to the great, general,
indivisible, common stock of umbrel
las, whither the law will not attempt
to pursue it."

BUSH EAR A BAD ON&
Origin of the Trouble With the Bear Lake
'The trouble with the Bear Lake In
dians, a branch of the Leech Lake
tribe? originated nbont eight months
ago, when an attempt was made by
Deputy Marshal Warren of White
Earth to arrest the Chief of the Bear
Lakes, who la known as Bush Ear.
H? is the head of the most lawless
band of Indians in Minnesota, about
300 In number, who live on on island
in Leech Lake, thirty miles north of
Walker, Cass County.
Busb Ear and nine of his tribesmen
were "wanted" for resisting an officer
of the United States Government.
Three or four of the aborigines were
charged with the illicit sale of whis
key, and the others were "wanted" aa
witnesses "against them. The men
were ugly from the start, and gave
open utterance to threats against the
white men of the neighborhood.
Matters began to look serious, but
a band of peaceable Leech Lake In
dians went to Bear Island and per
suaded some of the savages that if
they did not give up the Marshal
would send many of them to "the
happy hunting grounds." As a re
sult of this coaxing, all bot Chief
Bush Ear surrendered and were duly
tried at the Duluth term of the United
States District Court. Some were sen
tenced to sixty days in jail and oth
ers got off with thirty days.
Bush Ear kept out of the way and
in the meantime continued to boast of
his prouves s and to threaten Marshal
O'Connor and his Deputies with death
should they become foolhardy enough
to approach within 500 yards of him.
Young bucks encouraged him and
promised to follow his lead. All this
time- the officers were scheming to get
Bush Ear without shedding blood.
They thought their opportunity was
coming on th^ regular Government
Bush Ear was among the first to '
apply for money, Deputy Marshal Mor
rison had the pld warrant ready, and
seized Bush Ear and a companion,
who had also stirred up strife. The
Indians were informed that they were
charged with violating the liquor
laws and with resisting officers, but
that the penalty would not be severe.
Bush Ear was suspicious, and be
lieved that he was to be shot as the
chief offender. He was allowed to
confer with some of the Bear Island
Indians before he was taken to the
reservation Jail. Whefi night came
on the red men effected ^he release of
their Chief, and all escaped to their
island home, a distance of thirty
miles. Here they stirred up the re
mainder of the tribe to resistance and
held war dances, secured arms, and
prepared for desperate resistance.
Further acts of lawlessness, Includ
ing thievery and othev depredations,
resulted in a determination upon the
part of the authorities to arrest and
punish the offenders.
