When the applicant has settled on the e

bodily infrmitty, distwnoe or other le
cause from visiting the land of. ti
in person, the affidavit may be made w
betore the Olerk of the Oourt for the al
conty within which the land is situ- w
ated; and the affidavit, together with at
the application an money, can be for- o
wardeilto the Register and Receiver.
Having selected and entered the land, ti
he will be required to establish an act' a
ual residence thereon within six months h<
from the date of the entry, and that re
idence must be continued without aban- t1
donment, for more than six months i
at any one time for fie years. If he y
has a famiy his iamily must also reside d
on the land. While the law allowsa a
temporary abseiee (of not more than six ti
months at any one time), it requires 1(
that the residence and improve. i,
ment of the land shall be e
actual and substantial. The settler E
cannot sleep on the land one night every a
six months andeall it aresidence, neither e
can he pile a few logs or poles together
and call it a cabin. At the end of five
years from date of entry, or within two a
yewsthereafter, he can submit to the
d offoers proof of his residence, cul- 1
tivation, etc. This proof can either be
made before those offcers or before the
.Judge of a court of record of the coun
in which the land is sit'iated. He 'Vll
then be required to pay the balance of t
the commissions (bemig same amount as
the commission paid when entry was

monly termed " prove up ") at the end i
of five years, tihough he must do so with- i
in seven years from date of entry.
If the settler does not wish to remain
upon the land the full period required, b
he can after six months residence, prove e

The old-fashioned virtue of humility I
has fled before the power of that dis- a
agreeable quality generally mistaken for t
andepiendence of character. Wo have I
nothmg~ to say against this independence
when it is properly maintained, andi
does not degenerate into insolence ; but C
tings are not always called b~y their I
right natnes; an4 a great amount of bad i
manners and insolence passes current in t
all classes of society as independence, '
personal pride or social superiority. It 0
is difficult to define real independence '
of character ; to tell just what the com- I
bination of self-respect, good judgment a
and mental strength is which makes it; -
but it is easy enough to tell what it is r
not. When a cook boils the mutton shet
was told to roast she is disobedient, not E
independent. When a writer revenges 1
his personal slights in a newspaper, or ~
gratifies dislike of his neighbor by false 1
amputation of motives, he plays the part <
of a coward, and has no courage in him. t
When a passenger stretches his legs I
across a horse-car, or sits sideways with <
his feet in his neighbor's way, and locks t
like a thunder-loud at any one who I
1Jstumbles over him, he is simply a nuis
ance and intensely disagreeablIe. Thea
false notion that work for an employer is
incompatible with independence andC
service incompatible with pride, havoe
made immeasurable mischief in the 1
world. The term servant is now anf

here is a striking resemblance to the
'illages of Egypt. The houses have no
'utsidle windows and but one opening,
rhich is the door. The openings for
ght are upon inner courts or back-yards,
nd are without glass. The eaves are
ade to project, so as to keep out the
ain, and in doing so of course exclude
nuch light as well. Blinds made of
late are sometimes used, and thin, light
>aper pasted over the slats servo to keep
>ut some of the cold air and to let in a

ionses would interfere with the spirits

hem, thus 'bringing disaster upon the
ouse or village. In front of each door,
bnd at a distance of eight or ten feet,
tands a detached wall, fifteen feet long
Lnd as high as the eaves of the house,
oncealing the door from any person
tandirg in front of it. This is for the
mnrpose of protecting the house and

pirits, which are popularly believed to
Ly only in straight lines and to be in
apable of turning a corner. It follows

shanges were meagre indeed. only nica
dons our fathers had of oom changes in the
Wather wore aching limbs, t joints or
painful oorns. These "indications," the h
mide, wore usually correct and henoenat y
mugest the inquiry as to the relation between
the human system and the weather. The body
is unquestionably on excellent barometer. It
foretells changes in the atmosphero long before
they occur, and this fact has been taken advan
tage of by physicians who, when all ether
agencies fail, prescribe a change of air, thus
hoping the body may find an atmospheric con
didn better suited to its needs. And yet the
real relation between the human body and the
weather has never been fully understood, nor
has there ever been, until now, a correct ex
planation 9f what rheumatism (which seems in
league with the atmosphere) really i.. It was
originally thought by many to be a trouble in
the joints, and as such was treated in the most
strange not to say ridiculous, manner. This
theory became dispelled when the same trouble
attacked the muscles, and the fooling then pre.
valled that it was purely a muscular disorder.
But this idea was found to to too narrow, and
now it is universally conceded that rheumatism
is a blood disease. And what a terrible disease
it is. It often comes without warning and pros
trates the system with agony. Again its bein
ping is gradual, and its growth slow. In its
acute form it manifests itself in ever conceiv
able shape and always accompanied b intense
pain. At one time it is inflammatory, a another
neuralgic. Sometimes it assumes the form of
gout, and again that of Vleurisy or lumbago;
but in whatever manner it appears it is terribly
painful and always to be dreaded. The pain
and annoyance of rheumatism are increased
by its great danger for it is liable to attack the
brain or heart at any moment, thereby causing
instant death. Indeed, nearly every case of
heart-disease with all Its dreadful suddenness
which has ever occurred, can be traced more or
les direct to rheumatic causes. In its chronic
form it stiffens the joints, contracts the muv
3les undermines the health and ruins the life.
It Irequently attacks men and women who are
apparently in perfect health. Indeed it Is as
greatly to be dreaded as any possible forin of
but, however severe its effects may be, the
exact cause of this blood trouble has been an
undecided question, and it is only within the
past year that any decision upon the subject
has been reached. In ord. r to fully determine
what the cause of rheumatic disorders really
was, certain authorities sent letters of inquiry
from Washington to the leading practicing
physicians of the laud, and these inquiries were
responded to quite generally, thus furnishing
data of great value to science and mankind.
The views held by the doctors are of a varied
nature but so overwhelming a proportion hold
to one belief as to leave but little doubt that it is
the correct one. This belief, briefly stated, is
that uric acid in the blooil causes rheumatism
and that it is only by removing this poisonous
acid that rhoumatic or neuralgic troubles in all
their terrible forma can be cured. This being
true, the important quest ion arises : " How
does this poisonous uric acid get into the blood,
and how can it be removed?" Uric acId is a
waste material of the body which the kidneys
should carry out, but because they are weak
ened they cannot throw it from the system.
Restore the kidneys and you restore the power
that will force the uric acid from the system
and thus banish the rheumatic agonies which
It causes. This is weason ; It is science. No
one whose kid neys are in a perfect condition
was ever troubled with rheumatism, and no
rheumatic sufferer, however slight the pain
may be, has perfect kidneys. T1he conclusion
of this truth is Inevitable : perfect kidneys
means freedom from rheumatism.
When rheumatism has manifested itself In
any special part of the body, attempts have
usually been made to treat that part of the
body. As a result, the pain has departed but
the disease has remained, lyir~g anbtly concealed
and ready to break out at some unexpected
moment. Checking the pain in any single 1o.
cality only scatters the disease through the
system, when, if the seat of the disorder, which
are the kiuneys, were reached, a complete cur.
would be the result. The way, therefore, to
expel this rank and poisonous acid before it
assumes an Inflammatory or chronic form is by
keeping the kidneys in absolute health. This
Is no easy thing to do, and no means has, until
within the past few years, beeni known which
would successfully reach and affect these great
organs. At last, however, scientists have die
covered that the leaves of a tropical plant
previously but little known to science and
unknown to medicine, possessed marvelous
qualities adapted for the kidneys. These leaves
have been skillfully combined In the remedy
now known as Warner's Bafe Kidney and Liver
Cure. It is, up to the p resent time, the only
known preparation thatI acts so directly upon
the kidneys as to effectually cure the vat fous
dangerous forms of kidney disease, and henee
remove all uric acid from the blood. As a result,
the cure. it has been the means of performing,
are really very remarkable. Indeed, there are
thousands of persons In America to-day who
owe their restoration to health and entire free
dom from rheumatism to this simple yet pow
erful remedy, which is knowni universally,
manufactured in Rochester, N. Y. and sold in1
every drug store in the land.

The theory of the doctors as above explained
finds Its confirmation In the tact that when the
kidneys have been cured, rheumatism Is com
pletely removed. This is not, of oourse, alwaysu
accomplished instantly, for in a disease so
mubtle, the cure in often very slow, but under
no nthesr nian can any hope of permanent relief
aver be found. There are hundreds of cases

afficted with rheumatic troubles of the worst
