A Peculiar Dutch Custom.
The four Sundays of November are
observed as fete days in Holland. They
are known by the curious names Re
view. Decision, Purchase and Posses
sion, and all refer to matrimonial af
fairs, November In Holland being the
month par excellence devoted to court
ship and marriage, probably because
the agricultural occupations of the year
are over and possibly because the lords
of creation from quite remote antiq
uity have recognized the pleasantness
of having wives to cook and cater for
them during the long whiter.
On Review Sunday everybody goes
to church, and after service there is a
church parade in every village, when
the youths and maidens gaze upon
each other, hut forbear to speak.
On Decision Sunday each bachelor
who is seeking a wife approaches the
maiden of his choice with a ceremo
nious bow and from her manner of re
sponding judges whether his advances
are acceptable. Purchase Sunday the
consent of the parents is sought if the
suit has prospered during the week.

The Doe and Her Fawn.
Fawns when first dropped are for
some Lours unable to stand. The doe
does not remain beside them, but paces
slowly around at a considerable dis
tance. Every now and then she gives
a little tremulous, bleating call, at sound
of which the fawn lifts its head and
tries to struggle to its feet. Should a
man or a dog appear meantime the doe
runs away in a straight line, but lag
gingly and halting, as though herself
hurt unto death. When-she thinks she
has lured the enemy far enough away,
she gives three great flying leaps, which
take her at once out of sight, and goes
back to her baby upon seven league
boots. But If left undisturbed she
keeps up the pacing until she sees the
fawn standing, then paces daintily
away in a straight line, choosing al
ways the easiest grade. As she paces
she calls faintly and every now and
then halts, looking over her shoulder
to see if she Is followed.

GOOD ROADS SAVE MONEY.
To oppose Them ta Contrary to the
I»eM Intereata of the Country.
Discussing the farmer's interest in
good roads aud the gitat expense
which mud annually costs the nation,
the St. Taul Pioneer Press says in a
This matter of good permanent roads
is simply a business proposition. Year
after year the county has been spend
ing from $10,000 to $20,000 in repairing
roads, with no permanent results.
Every year, or at best within two or
three years, the work has to be done
over again. Every spring and at every
long spell of wet weather there are
stretches of mudholes and ruts that
compel a detour more or less exten
sive. At such times a heavy load is
out of the question. Traffic between
town and country is either suspended
or reduced to a minimum. The losses
at these times to farmers and to mer
chants are not inconsiderable, and it is
sudi losses that can be avoided by the
construction of permanent roads that
pay for themselves In a few years in
the saving in the cost of repairs if
properly built and properly cared for.
Nor is tins the only saving. As the
result of an Inquiry made in ISUS by
the United States department of agri
culture replies were received from over
1,200 counties, giving the cost of haul
ing crops in various parts of the United
States. The average load hauled was
found to be 2,002 pounds, the average
Length of haul 12.1 miles, the average
cost of hauling a ton of crops to mar
ket $3.02, while the average cost of
hauling a ton for a distance of one
mile was 23 cents. At the same time
the average cost of hauling a ton a
mile on the roads of England, France,
DIRT ROAD IX DECEMBEU.
Germany, Belgium, Italy and Switzer
land was found to be only B.G cents, or
about one-third of the cost on the dirt
roads of the United States.
In the face of these facts to stand in
the way of macadam roads is to run
counter to the interests of the farmers
and of the city, both of which profit
by ease of communication, and the first
cost will be much less if the work is
let in large contracts than if it is let
piecemeal. The proposed plan for road
Improvement in this country contem
plates the macadamization of some 20
or 30 miles of the main thoroughfares,
the crossroads to be laid with gravel
and clay well rolled.
With material close at hand such
roads can be built for about $500 a
mile, but in many cases where no grav
el is at hand the cost might run to two
or three times that sum. The building
of such roads is just as much of an art
and requires just as much care In the
preparation of the specifications as
macadam and even more attention to
maintenance. No one would seriously
advocate the completion of this exten
sive programme in any one year or
even the raising of $80,000 or $100,000
by taxation for the building of the
macadam sections, but It would be
cheaper in the end, in all likelihood, to
borrow the necessary sum of the state
at 4 per cent, creating a sinking fund
for the retirement of the bonds when
due. The saving in repairs when the
dirt road is superseded by the macad
am and scientifically built gravel road
would not only pay all interest, but
would leave a margin for sinking fund
purposes. The prosecution of the pro
gramme, not its abandonment, Is the
way to save the county's money, to say
nothing of that of the farmers'.
Mr. W. S. Whedon.caehier of the Firßt
National Bank of Wintereet, lowa, in a
recent letter gives some experience with
a carpenter in hie employ, that will be of
value to other mechanics. He cays: "I

diarrhoea. I mentioned to him that I

How a Little Boy Was Saved.
Washington, D. C. — "}YHien our
boy was about 16 months old he broke
out with a rash which was thought to
be measles. In a few days he had a
swelling on the left side of his neck
and it was decided to be mumps. He
was given medical attendance for
about three weeks when the doctor
paid it was scrofula and ordered a
salve. lie wanted to lance the sore,
but I would not let him and continued
giving him medicine for about four
months when the bunch broke in two
places and became a running sore.
Three doctors said it was scrofula and
each ordered a blood medicine. A
neighbor told me of a case somewhat
like our baby's which was cured by
Hood's Sarsaparilla. I decided to
give it to my boy and in a short while
his health improved and his neck
healed so nicely that I stopped giving
him the medicine. The sore broke
out again, however, whereupon I again
gave him Hood's Sarsaparilla and its
persistent use has accomplished a com
plete cure. I do not think there will be
even a scar left. I cannot speak too
highly of Hood's Sarsaparilla and I rec
ommend it everywhere I get a chance."
Mrs. Nettie Chase, 47 X St., N. E.
"A complication of troubles, dys
pepsia, chronic catarrh ami inflam

thoroughly cured." N. B. Seeley,
