'The Blood is the Life,"
Runs the old saying, and everything
that ever makes part of any organ of
the body must reach its place therein
through the blood. Therefore, if tin
blood is purified and kept in good
condition by the use of Hood's Sar
sanarilla. it necessarily follows that
the benefit of the medicine is impart
ed to every organ of the body. Can
anything be simpler than the method
by which this excellent medicine
gives good health to all who w ill try
fairly and patiently?
An Agricultural Curiosity.
At the Agricultural Museum in the
Capitol building at Springfield, Illi
nois, there is a wonder in the shape
of a perfect head of wheat of the com
mon Fultz variety, on one side of
which there is a spear of cheat
Where there should have been three
grains of wheat there are three of
cheat. To thoso agricultural scientists
who have contended that wheat and
cneni are two separate products nnu
in no way allied, this specimen wil
prove of interest.

"The Well of Frozen Air."
Near Dayton, Ore., there is a well
ocally known as the "well of frozen
air." In drilling the well a stratum
of frozen clay and gravel was encoun
tered at a. depth of feet. Alter
passing through five feet of this, nu
merous cavities were encountered
from which cold air came in gusts.
The escape of the air from the well
can be heard roaring for nearly "00
yards. The air which conies from
these subterranean depths is so frigid
it is not possible for any one to hold
his hand over the ojiening for more
than two minutes without having it
frozen. A bucket of water set over
the opening will freeze through and

cities is IS miles, and subscribers aro

The Lending C ompanies in
and terms given
Looking out over iLe many homes of this country, we see thousands
of women wearing away their lives in household drudgery that might be
materially lessened by the use of a few cakes of SAPOLIO. If an hour
is saved each time a cake is used, if one less wrinkle gathers upon the face
because the toil is lightened, she must be a foolish woman who would
hesitate to make the experiment, and he a churlish husband who would
grudge the few cents which it costs
If your grocer sends you anything in place cf SAPOLIO, send it
back and insist upon havLg just what you ordered. SAPOLIO always
gives satisfaction. On lLors, tables, and painted work it acts like a
charm. For scouring pots, pans, and metals it has no equal. Everything
shines after it, and even the children delight in ir:hg it in their attempts
to help around the house.
