Different Methods of Following the
Injunction, "Love One Another."
Do men ever fall in love with each
Women do. Not long ago a young
woman in New Jersey was married
ton youthful laborer on her father's
farm. Sometime afterward it ws
discovered that the husband was a
female ; the young wife refused, how
ever, though earnestly entreated by
her friends, to give up her chosen
consort. The strangest part of the
discovery was the fact that the bride
knew her husband was a woman be
fore she was led to the altar.
If men do not exhibit this strange
infatuation for one of their own sex,
they at least oftentimes give evidence
of the fact that they love one another.
There are many instances on record
where one man has given his life for
another. There are many more in
stances where men have given life to
It is a proud possession the knowl
edge that one has saved a precious
human life. Meriden, Coun., is the
home of such a happy man. John
II. Preston, of that city, July lth,
18'JO, writes: "Five years ago I was
taken very sick, I had several of the
best doctors, and one and all called it
a complication of diseases. I was
sick four years, taking prescriptions
prescribed by these same doctors, and
I truthfully state I never expected to
get any better. At this time I com
menced to have the most terrible
pains in my back. One day an old
friend of niiue, Mr. It. T. Cook of the
firm of Curtis & Cook, advised me to
try Warner's Safe Cure, as he had
been troubled the same way and it
had effected a cure for him. I bought
six bottles, took the medicine as di
rected and am today a well man. I
am sure no one ever had a worse case
of kidney and liver trouble than I
had. Before this I was always
against proprietary medicines but
not now, oh, no."

THAT CAN BE RELIED ON
A few weeks since I saw a touching
ar.d beautiful siht. Driving through
a rugged part of the country, my at
tcnlion was directed to an elderly
lady trying to pick her way over a
rough hillside. She came very slow
ly and carefully. The hill was quite
i-teej), and I was pitying her and
thinking if it would not be well to
offer my services, when I heard a
whistling boy coming up behind the
carriage. lie bounded past, and run
ning up the hill put his arms around
the lady and steadied her steps, say
ing pleasant words, I know, for the
face encased in the warm hood look
t d beaming and bright with happi
ness. As we passed I heard her say
these words : "It is so nice to have a
boy to come and help a mother down
the hill." I knew they were mother
and son. There was a sermon in
those few words, I thought. I wish
every boy could have heard them.
You boys are all of you here to
help mother down the hill of life

the pity. Some of you make it hard
or for her. You do things that
trouble her ; she is anxious about you,
and then she lias to pick her way
over places a thousand times rougher
than walking down a steep hill. Per
haps you are getting into bad habits,
and will not obey her counsel. Her
poor heart is bruised and torn by
your conduct. She knows what the
niilts of evil doings are; that if a

We mean your boy, the little fel
low you left at home this morning
when you started for the store or of
fice. Don't lorget he has wants as
real and tangible to him as yours are
to you. Remember, he is no more a
born saint than you were. And if
you just reflect a little you will be
ashamed to think how far from it
you were. Don't forget him as soon
as his "good-by, papa," fades away
behind you. Didn't he ask you for
something? n jack-knife or a ham
mer or a new slate or some pencils or
something or other? If you love
your boy and wish to show him that
you do, you might better forget a
business appointment down town
than to forget his request.
If he asks you for something your
better judgment says he should not
have, don't be content with simply
ignoring the boy's wish, but take the
time and trouble to explain your
reasons. IJoys, even pretty young
ones, are quicker than you may
think to see a point. Always give a
reason for refusal of his request, even
if it is the one you too often give,
that you can't afford it. And be
careful how you give that reason.
If he has lost or broken his jack-
knife, and asks you for a new one
don t scold him. Albeit' you may
give him a little lesson in careful
ness, but don't tell him you can't

Insurance Against Disease.
In certain instances there have
been arrangements made between a
physician and the head of a family
hat a fixed amount should be paid
for each day the various members of
the family continued in good health.
But should sickness enter tha house
hold, the physician's usual .stipend
was discontinued. Such an agree
ment is founded on common sense,
for we don't want to be made well,
we want to be kept well. There is a
great deal of unnecessary sickness re
sulting from a want of careful atten
tion to bodily requirements. Keep
the blood pure, keep the functional
habits of the body regular, counter
act the effects of exposure by always
having a bottle of Dr. John Bull's
Sarsapurilla in the household and us
ing it in anticipation of an attack of
illness or when the very first symp
toms are manifest. Disease will not
trouble you if you will heed this good
advice. It is an excellent prevent
ive of disease and decay as well as a
safe cure. Marion Banner.
