Interesting to Lovers of the Dog.
If you want to niako friends with a
dog, you will find that there is nothing
that this animal likes better than to
have some one rub his ears. If you
will take a dog's ears and curl them
softly up in your hands and squeeze
them very gently, you will make a ca
nine friend very soon. If the dog
wears a collar, you can add greatly to
his comfort by scratching that part of
his neck where the collar rests. These
same methods are said to be used by
Dog tattooing is now done in cities
and is quite a sensible notion, as It
affords a means of identifying lost ani
mals. A fancier says he has tattooed
dogs for a number of people who own
valuable ones. The mai'king is mostly
done in the bend of one of the legs.
A silver polish can be made by mix
ing a few drops of ammonia with whit

whole to make It the consistency of
cream. It can be bottled and if corked
tightly will keep as long as desired. It
cleans silver without hard rubbing.
When cut flowers become wilted,
they may frequently be freshened by
clipping off the ends and clipping the
stems in hot water for a few moments.
Rubber heels for all shoes are highly
spoken of by many women who first

Proper Way to Prevent Wuhoitl on
In order to prevent the washing out
of earth roads on hills, it sometimes
1 tues necessary t>. construct water
breaks that Is, broad, shallow ditches
arranged so as to catch the surface wa
ter and carry it each way Into the side
ditches. Such ditches retard traffic to
a certain extent and often result in
overturning vehicles. Consequently
they should never be used until all oili
er means Lave failed to cause the wa
ter to flow Into the side channels. Nei
ther should they be allowed to cross
the entire width of the road diagonally,
but should be constructed in the shape
of the letter v. This arrangement per
mits teams following the middle of tho
road to cross the ditch squarely and
thus avoid the danger of overturning.
These ditches should not be deeper than
is absolutely necessary to throw the
water off the surface, and the part In
the center should be the shallowest
Unfortunately fanners arid road mas
ters have a fixed Idea that the one way
to prevent hills, lung and short, from
washing Is to heap upon them quanti
ties of those original tumnlar obstruc

Care of Sand Roads.
The more one improves the drainage
"i" a sand road the inure deplorable
becomes its condition. Nothing will
ruin one quicker than to dig a ditch on
each side and drain all the water
away. The best way to make such a
road firm is to keep it constantly
damp. Very bushy or shady trees
alongside such roads prevent the evap
oration of water.
The usual way of mending mads
which run over loose, sandy soils is
to cover the surface with tough clay
or mix the clay and sand together.
This is quite an expensive treatment
if the clay has to be transported a
great distance, but the expense may
be reduced by improving only eight or
ten feet or half of the roadway.
Wasting Public Money.
The building of macadam roads of
fers opportunities for manifold mis
takes and for an enormous waste of
public funds. If ever it be true that
what is worth doing is worth doing
well, it is emphatically true in the
building of stone roads. If a macad
am road c-annoi be built right from
the start, it had better not be buiH at
nil in prevent a needless waste of mon
ey. Every good macadam road testi
fies to the value of durable highways,
while every stone road improperly
built throws a shadow of doubt upon
the movement for better roads.—Otto
While 3lan Turned Yellow.
Great consternation was felt by the
friends of M. A. Hogarty of Lexington,
Ky., when they saw he was turning yel
low. His skin slowly changed color, al
so his eyes, and he suffered terribly. His
malady was Yellow Jaundice. He was
treated by the best doctors, but without
benefit. Th-n he was advised to try
Electric Bitters, the wonderful stomach
and liver remedy, and he writes: "After
taking two botfles I was wholly cured."'
A trial proves its matchless merit for
all stomach, liver and kidney troubles.

In the Spring
When we would like to
feel strong, vigorous and
ambitious, we are weak,
tired and dull; appetite
is poor, food is not relished,
sleep does not seem to
refresh, we go to bed tired
and get up tired. This
condition is because of
thin, impure, sluggish
blood which is unequal to
the demands of the body
for more life, vigor, energy,
strength. Nature cries for
help, and it is to be found
in Hood's Sarsaparilla, the
great blood purifier, blood
enricher, blood vitalizes
