Four Years on Crutches.
Tor fifteen years I was afflicted with rheu
matism, four ;eanof which 1 war compelled
to go on crutches. Words are Inadequate to
express the suffering I endured during tliat
time. During these 11 1 teen years of exis
tence (it was not living), 1 triea every known
remedy without receiving any benefit. I
finally began on Swift's Specific (3. 8. 8.1,
which from the first gave me relief, and to
day I am enjoying the bent of health, and am
a well man. I cundtdlv believe that s. 8. 8.
Is the best biood purifier on the market to
day. J, D. TAYLOK, Cuba, Mo.

In all cases the endeavor should bo
made to discover w hether the sleep
lessiiess be duo to any removable
cause, such as indigestion, cold, want
of exercise, and t:io like. In regard
to sleeping in the daytime, there is
so infilling to be said both for and
against that practice. A nap of "forty
winks'" in tiio afternoon enables many
aged people to get through the rest of
tlio day in comfort, whereas they feel
tired and weak when deprived of this
refreshment. If they rest well at night
l here can be go objection to the after
noon nap, but if sleeplessness be com
plained of, the laiter should heiliscon
tinned lor a time. Most old peoplo
li ml that a reclining posiure, with the
le.-t and legs rai-ed, is belter than the
horuonlal position for the tifternoon
nap. Ingestion proceeds wilh more
ease than w hen the body is incumbent.

Wliat Makes Wrinkles.
The general impression about wrin
kles is that they ure caused by worry,
but the truth is that most of them come
from laughing. To know how to
laug'h is just us important us to know
when to do it. If you laugh with the
sides of your face the skin will work
loose in time, and wrinkles will form
in exact accordance with the kind of
laugh you have. The man yvho al
ways weal's a smirk will havo a series
of semicircular wrinkles covering his
cheeks. A gambler, who isaccustomed
to suppressing his feelings, generally
has a deep line running from each
side of his nose to the upper corner of
his mouth, which in time extends to
the chin, forming the shapo of a half
moon. A cadaverous person is usual
ly marked wilh two wrinkles, one on
the jaw and the other under the eye,
meeting ut right angles at the cheek
bones. The scholar's wriukle forms
on ins brow, while a schemers
wrinkles come around his eyes, and
look liko spokes of a wheel. Inter
