TALISMANS AND CHARMS.
Talismans and charms have their
tops and downs in fashion. Just now
the wearing of such "mascots," says
"The Woman's Magazine," seems to
be in the ascendant. They hang from
necks, they dangle from purses, they
even adorn one's rooms. The new
est charm in Paris, which is war
ranted to leave joyousness in its
wake, ls a pot of growing (shamrocks.
The pots are small, and there is a
great desire to get the four-leaved
shamrocks to grow in them. Such a
result, of course, is a mere question
of luck. The shamrock charm will
be much sought this season and will
be a popular favor fOT luncheons. At
least Paris is looking through green
eyes at present.

Most diseases start in the alimen

A great deal of our stomach and

The stomach does not digest any of
the starchy food we eat-white bread,

things are digested in the small in

most of us do, the organs that should

IHOONSCIENOIOXTSNESS IN WORK.
. Given-the man, woman or child that
conscienciousness into work. But in
whatever it may be, and success will
accompany ?heir efforts. It is the
hardest task, this learning and living
up to the fulfillment of conscientious
effort.. It is very easy to find excuse
for the cutting short, in some degree
the work or project at hand. It is
the workman who gives his employer
the premium of work on every dollar
he receives, that is going to get ahead,
and be wanted when extra and better
; It is in every day life, in the homo,
in the church, in society, that the con
scientious person is wanted, for it is
'through such a person, that the best
results come, that the home is exalt
ed, the church made the strength it
should be, and society redeemed from
its frivolity and wastefulness.
It is the doing more and-better
than the allotted work, that counts.
It is not being moral and upright,
for mere individual gain, because
.good, habits give their possessors a
higher position, on a salary or money
basis, but the being good, because
goodness is a virtue that means
peace, happiness and security to the
possessor in this world, and in the
ona to come. In a commercial cen :.
it is the person who is above par :n
character and application in con
scientious effort, that is wanted in ev
ery trade and profession, in every
walk of life. The indifferent person
may appear to succeed equally as well
as the person that puts individual
conscientiousness into work, But in
the day when any crisis occurs, when
work becomes scarce, wages are cut,
or when a man or woman is wanted
to carry out some great work of the
moment, it will be found that the con
sciencious person stands above his
fellow, the indifferent and careless,
and the call will be to him or her, as
the case may be.
In the school, in the field of labor,
conscienciousness in the work at
hand, is what means both temporary
and future success. To carry to the
fullest .possible, the lessons well
learned, and thoroughly. To com
plete the work of the hour and the
day, carefully, honestly without
waste of material or time. It means
success. It means better future ef
forts. It means character strength

THE SUPPORT OF THB LOOAL
The approach of winter and the
holiday season, when the most import
ant and largest expenditures on the
part of every person and family
takes jplace, calls attention to a mat
ter of great consideration, for those
who are to purchase these supplies.
This matter-is where are you, the cit
izen, going to buy your goods, of
your home merchant, or are you al
ready sending out for catalogues from
outside merchants of the great north
.ern cities, and figuring on saving
twenty-five cents on every ten dol
lar purchase ?
There is no greater community of
interests in a town or city, than that
which is to be found in local co-oper
ation of the people. It is the senti
ment put into active practice of doing
everything possible for your neigh
bor's interest. It is the good word
ever ready for the city's defence. It
is the ready help to promote and ad
vance every local interest which
means" public hetterments.
It is found in giving the local mer
chant every possible order, overy pos
sible dollar in trade for goods, that
c?nHbe purchased in his store, or or
dered through his store.
The support of homo institutions ie
best seen in the local patronage given
every worthy local merchant. The- re
tail merchant, as a tax payer, is a
most important supporter of every
.thing that makes up a municipality.
He is taxed for everything, and pro
portionally bears the greatest bur
den as a local taxpayer. This being
true the local merchant deserves tho
consistent support, and every possible
dollar of patronage from his home
At this season of the year, the pam
phlet by mail, and the attractive ad
in some outside periodical, is too apt
to draw attention away from the
local merchant. The person want
ing goods very often will say what
is the use of going to the local mer
chant, he can't cany such goods, and
so send an order to some outside mer
chant. But how does the home citi
zen know that the article wanted is
not to be found in town"? Has the
local newspaper been looked lover,
.to see if the local merchant adver
tises, or if not having the exact ar
ticle, cannot order the goods, and so
make a small profit?
Lot this season be a new ona for lo
cal buyers, in that they make up their
lists of needed goods, look up their
local merchant and give him the first
opportunity to fill eveiy order, before
sending a dollar to some northern
city. Let the people trysthis one sea
son,'and see what the result will be.
Give it a trial.
It's a bad habit.
It gets you into no end ot trouble.
It's always bad manners to try to
pry into other persons' affairs.
Respect his silence, and don't try

Mrs. Weygand told her sister the pa

A CYCLONE BABY.
In Oklahoma Territory one night
last summer a cyclone swept over a
section of the country and destroyed
about forty houses. Next morning,
about thirty miles from the path of
the cyclone, a farmer going out to'
mow his meadow found a child a year
old In the grass. It was a boy aud
he had a bedquilt wrapped around
him. The storm had brought him,
but the only hurtle had received wa3
a scratch on the nose.
Notice was given to the nearest
newspapers at once and the case waa
published.I In this way hundreds of
peo; le came to know about lt. One
would think that the child's parents
would have been found soon, but as
a matter of fact no word has come
from them yet. It may be that they
were killed, or, as some think, they
wanted to abandon the boy, though he
is a sm?rt and cunning little chap and
being praised by everybody.
A dozen different families stood
ready to adopt him, but his home Is
with those who found him in tho
The name given to the lost baby ls
simply "Cy," for the first syllable of
cyclone, and if he wants to lengthen
it out when he grows up there will
be no objections. Perhaps when man
hood Is reached we shall hear of him
in the Legislature as "Mr. Cy Clone."

What Do They Cure?
The above question ls often asked con
cerning Dr. Pierce's two leading medi
cines, "Golden Medical Discovery" and
The answer is that "Golden Medical
Discovery " is a most potent alterative or
blood-purifier, and tonic or invigorator
and acts especially favorably in a cura
tive way upon all tho mucous lining sur
faces, as of the nasal passages, throat,
bronchial tubes, stomach, bowels and

The words of praise bestowed on the
several ingredients entering into Doctor
Pierce's medicines by such writers should
have more weight than any amount of
non-professional testimonials, because
