THE CHILDREN ENJOY
Life out of doors and out of the panics which they play and the enjoy
ment which they receive and the efforts which they make, conies the
greater part of that healthful development which is ho essential to their
happiness when grown. When a laxative is needed the remedy which is
piven to them to cleanse and sweeten and strengthen the internal organs
on which it acts, should be such as physicians would sanction, because its
component parts arc known to be wholesome and the remedy itself free from
every objectionable quality. The one remedy which physicians and parents,
well-informed, approve and recommend and which the little ones enjoy,
because of its pleasant flavor, its gentle action and its beneficial effects, is
Ryrup of Tigs and for the same reason it is the only laxative which should
be tid by fathers and mothers.
Syrup of Tigs is the only remedy which acts gently, pleasantly and
naturally without griping, irritating, or nauseating and which cleanses the
system effectually, without producing that constipated habit which results
from the use of the old-time cathartics and modern imitations, and against
which the children should be so carefully guarded. If you would have them
grow to manhood and womanhood, strong, healthy and happy, do not give
them medicines, when medicines are not needed, and when nature needs
assistance iu the way of a laxative, give them only the simple, pleasant and
gentleSyrup of Figs.
Its quality is due not only to the excellence of the combination of the
laxative principles of plants with pleasant aromatic syrups and juices, but
also to our original method of manufacture and as you value the health of
the little ones, do not accept any of the substitutes which unscrupulous deal
ers sometimes offer to increase their profits. The genuine article may be
bought anywhere of all reliable druggist at fifty cent3 per bottle. Please

Color in the Arctics.
My first experience of color in the
Arctics, says Frank Wilbert Stokes,
whose story and pictures of "The Au
rora Borealis" are a feature of the Feb
ruary Century, led me to believe that,
from the most regal purples, golds,
and crimsons of sunlight to the black
purples, grays, and gray-greens of
storms, there existed no intermediate
effects. But a sojourn of a year in the
northland proved that great Nature's
palette was here set with more va
ried riches than elsewhere. Especial
ly was this true of the color-effects of
the long twilight of approaching win
ter, the returning-light of day, and
even In the heart of the polar night.

close guess as to my whereabouts by
the smell of that particular locality."

my nose seemed stuffed with hides and
tallow I should know that I was in the
Immediate vicinity of Gold, Cliff or
Frankfort street. A pronounced odor
of spices would indicate Fulton street,
In the neighborhood of the East River;
but if tea and coffee predominated the
chances would be strongly in favor of
Front, Pearl, or Water street. A
saccharine quality In the air would
suggest the sugar and molasses neigh
borhood of William, Wall, or Front
streets.' Perfumes would place me at
once on Leonard or Chambers, or pos
sibly Grand street, while a strong odor
of, soap would let me know that Pearl
or Murray street, or perhaps Green
wich or Hudson was not far off. If
the atmosphere was fairly reeking
with the scent of drugs I could figure
out that I had wound up somewhere
near Fulton, William, or Cliff street.
Tobacco would give me a wide range,
but I should probably be near Pearl,
Pine, or Broad street. The smell of
hops would be a sure indication of
Whitehall street. West and South
streets have their distinctive odors of
shipping and seamen's supplies."
German Children Walk.
(From Charles Gerould's "Child Life in
Germany," in February St. Nicholas.)
If I were asked what is the favorite
amusement of German children. 1
should answer, taking long walks into
the country. The love of nature seems
to be bom with most of them. Be
sides, they are sturdy young folks, and
are perfectly willing to put up with In
conveniences. For these reasons they
are just the people to enjoy walking
in the country, and the practice begun
in childhood is kept up during life.
When the children go on these long
walks, they often carry what we should
call a botanical box (that is, a tin box
about a foot and a half long, with
rounded edges, and a lid on hinges),
slung over the shoulder by a strap.

This Is ;tn important p.'ivt of success

we cannot have our noils too Hue, too
deep or too rich. We tdiould break
them very deep. And Ibis breaking
should be done now ir it has not al
ready been done. This will enable the
rains to do their work. Thrlr work is
nil Important, and we cannot do it.
When wo have used plows, spades
and harrows, riill we leave millions

Aeration requires time.
Manuring is putting on vegetable
matter and voidings to rot In th? soil.
It takes time for these to become thor
oughly incorporated with the soil, ar.d
to become soluble in water. They
should bo put on as early ns practi
cable, nnd mixod in with the soil.
Thru they will decay. In so doing,
they start fermentation. This assists
aeration, and the two working to
gether get the plant food in soluble
form, ready for use by the plants.

One of the most important elements
In phv.it growl h is potash. This enters
into the composition of all plants. It
g-ivos health to the plant, nnd strength
to do its work. This clement is very
abundant in nearly all garden crops
It is especially needed for all these
cro'w which have numerous seeds, and
also for crops which are liable 1o fun-
gus diseases, such as rust, wilt, etc.
Most soils are deficient in this ele
ment. Ilenca it is very important to
supply it. (lenn an kainit and muriate
of potash are the cheapest and most
relialde of the sources of supply. These
should bo used liberally on garden and
truck patches. Thosplioric acid is also
sometimes needed. This we can get
from superphosphates and bones. The
nitrogen is usually supplied from the
manure and vegetable matter.
Having made the soil rich and warm,
we can begin planting quite early.
There are many vegetables, such as
radishes, lettuce, mustard, turnips,
onions, salsify and so on, which in
many sections grow all winter. These
can be planted early. Irish potatoes
can be planted In all the South any
time you are ready. Tut them In
rather deep; cover with rotting straw
or leaves, or other decaying vegetable
matter; then throw on soil as deep as
you think best. As spring approaches
rake off the crust with a light harrow.

Water Before Meals.
While the general opinion of those
supposed to be authorities on this
matter has been that the habit of
drinking water at meals is a deleter
ious one, it is now stated, according
to recent investigations that a little
water, if not too cold, is beneficial, as
it assists in the digestion of food. A
too copious supply of water dilutes
the gastric juice, and if too cold lowers
the temperature of the stomach below
normal, thus impairing digestion. If,
however, wr.ter is taken In limited
quantltios the peptones formed by the
action of gastric juice on food will be
washed a3ide, thereby facilitating ab
sorption. By this means the undigest
ed food Is laid bare and is more sus
ceptible to further action cf the gas
trio juice. . During the period of rest
phlegm, being very tenacious, prevents
the free flow of gastric juice for some
time, hence delays digestion. A drink
of water before meals '.3 recommend
ed, because it loosens and washes
away this deposit of mucus, thereby
permitting the gastric juice to attack
the food as It enters the stomach.

bran will be readily eaten by hens
when they have been regularly fed on

other bowel disorders. In experiments
