There Is no us talking a baby in the house is the link that binds
husband and wife together. Nothing is sadder than fruitless wedlock.
The prattling and cooinr of the little ones offset a thousand times the
occasional worries and trials of life. When a wife is barren, there is a
derangement somewhere in the genital organs, caused by one or more of
those common disorders known as " female troubles". Wine of Cardui "
Is the remedv. It puts the organs of generation in a strong and healthy
condition, fitting the wife for the sacred duty of reproducing her kind.
During the period of gestation the entire system of the expectant mother
is built up to withstand the ordeal of labor, and when the little one
makes its advent it is lusty and

The Basis of Credit.'
A man's past record, with but few
exceptions, should determine the ques
tion of his eligibility for credit, in the
future. If he has been slow pay in the
past, he will probably be slow pay in
his next purchases. If he has been
prompt and satisfactory, he will likely
be the same again. As an instance I
might mention a case which recently
came under my notice. A trader who
hud gradually got to be slow and unsat
isfactory was compelled to assign. His
failure was not due to any misfortune,
such as fire or flood, but seemed the
natural consoqucuce of his incompetence
and lack of management. A wholesale
house which had been supplying him
lost heavily, but compromised, and as
he continued tbey still sold him, but on
30 days' time. For awhile he promptly
attended to his payments, but after a
time he got slower and slower, and as
he was a liberal buyer and his purchases
were allowed to accumulate he soon
owed a bill far larger than, his means
would warrant. As this dragged along
for some years a compromise was grant
ed upon this indebtedness also. Still he
clung to his old creditor and again or
dered goods, promising' to send the
money within SO days. But his past
record was too much even for so lenient
a creditor. He was told plainly that he
would get no more goods on credit and
that if he ordered anything cash must
accompany toe order in every case.
Now, a man of this stamp is a positive
detriment to a man who pays bis bills.
n.fter thus being refused credit by tho
old house he will try aud get it else
where and no doubt will succeed. But
if his record is known it should be a
final answer to tbe question of granting
him credit. Hardware.

THE HORSE'S SHOES.
HOW OFTEN THEY NEED REPLEN
ISHING AND WHAT THEY COST.
Resetting- Old Shoes Costa About Half as
Much, aa New Ones The Cse of Rubber
Tads Carriage Horses Shoes Cost Store
Than Those of Work Horses.
A work horse's shoes cost a good deal
more than its driver's shoes do. Truck
horses, delivery wagon horses and tbe
great number cf horses used for various
working purposes, including maty
horses driven to hacks and other publio
carriages, are ordinarily hod once a
month at a cost of $2.50, so that tho
work horse's shoes are likely to cost
$30 a year anyway, and there may be
some additional expense for sharpening
Sharpening costs $ 1. CO. Whether this
is necessary or not depends, of course.
primarily upon the weather. It may de
pend much upon the time of day the
horse is driven. ' There may be seasons
in which Sharpening is not necessary.
2sot ail drivers get the shoes of their
horses sharpened even when the going
is slippery. Such going may come about
suddenly and unexpectedly, and it may
be of brief duration, and then there are
drivers who under ordinary circum
stances take tbe risk of tbe greater cost
of a broken shaft or an injured animal
to save the cost of sharpening. Of work
horses in general probably something
more than half have their shoes sharp
ened when the going is slippery. There
are some, however, whose shoes are al
most all kept sharpened at such times,
these being the horses that work at
night aud in tbe early morning before
the sun has softened the ice or melted
it away. These include horses driven
to milk wagons, bakers' horses, and so
on, how often the shoes are sharpened
depending on the going.
Usually when a horse is shod he is
shod all around. Sometimes there is oc
casion to put on a single shoe, as when
a horse throws a shoe. The cost of a
single new shoe is one-fourth the cost
of a set in the case of a work horse 63
cents. The charge for resetting the old
shoe would be 35 cents. Besetting in
general, from one shoe up, costs about
one-half, or a little more than half, as
much as fitting a horse with new shoes.
In putting on a siuglo shoe an old shoe
would commonly be used, to make it
match those remaining on. If it is not
too much worn, the shoe tho horse has
cast would be put back if the driver
picked it up. It is suitable and it fits.
If it has not been picked up, then a
slipper is put on from tho pile in the
shop, slipper being the shop name of
tho worn shoe taken off and thrown
aside when a horse is reshod.
Horses have peculiarities in wearing
their shoes, just as men do. Some wear
them off more at the toe, some more at
the heel, and some wear them more on
one side than on the other. Horses1
shoes wear off more quickly on granite
pavements than they do on asphalt, and
the greatly increased use of asphalt
pavement has led to a correspondingly
increased use of rubber pads in horses'
shoes to give tho horses a better foot
hold. Rubber pads, as well as tbe shoes.
are fitted to tbe horse's foot and nailed
on with tbe shoe. Shoes with rubber
pads of this kind for work horses, cost,
put on, $4 or $5 a set. They are likely
to wear longer than shoes without pads,
but they are commonly replaced or re
set at tho end of a month. The necessi
ty for resboeing the horse at intervals
of about a month is due in a considera
ble degree lo the natural growth of the
horse's hoofs, which require trimming
or other attention about once in so
often. In the case of iron shoes, at the
end of a month, when tbey are taken
off, they are likely to be too much worn
to go another month, and new shoes are
put on. In tbo case of rubber pad shoes,
if they are not too much worn, they are
reset, and this may be done in perhaps
40 or CO per cent of tbe cases. Some
times the old shoes may be put back
with new pads, sometimes the old pads
with new shoes. It depends a good deal
on the manner in which tho horse wears
them. So that while the first cost of
rubber pad shoes is considerably greater
than that cf plain shoes tbe net cost is
not so much greater.
The price charged for shoeing a pri
vate coach or carriage horse is $1 more
than for shoeing a work horse, or $3. 50,
aud rubber pad shoes, such as those de
scribed, for carriage horses cost $5 or $0
a set. Such horses are reshod ordinarily,
like most horses, once a month, and as
a rule their shoes are also reset in the
middle of tbe month. And tbe shoes of
private carriage horses are more com
monly kept sharpened in slippery weath
er than are those of work horses. Wom
en are more likely to be disturbed by
the slipping of a horse than a man
would be, and tbe carriage horses are
usually more valuable than work
horses, and less risk of injury is taken.
In some cases it might be that tbe
charge for shoeing a horse, either a car
riage horse or a work horse, would be
according to tbe time required rather
than by tbe job, as, for example, in
the case of a lame borse. in shoeing
which more than the usual time would
be needed. Shoes are made and fitted
tq meet any requirement, and the cost
might be, according to the amount of
work and time expended, from 91 to fa
for a einglo shoe. Jew York Sun.
