Nervous Dyspepsia. Caused me Great Distress for a Number
of Years Finally I was Cured by
An active mind, suffering fromfNerrine pats the mind in just
overexertion, gnef, trouble, worry of
household cares, demands from the
body a greater amount of fuel for the
vital fires than the digestive organism
can Ripply. It requires a certain
amount of vital force to operate the
human machine, and when all the
available supply of force is absorbed
by the overworked brain there is noth
ing left for the stomach. It is easy
now to understand why irritability
and dyspepsia have become almost
synonymous; why a nervous person is!
usually so very particular and capri
cious about food. It is an almost un
disputed fact that no marked progress
can be made toward the ultimate cure!
of any disease until the mind is putk
into that calm, serene condition

nearly thirty years and two years ago I was
taken with a nervous trouble which caused me
much distress. I could not eat nor sleep, was!
losing strength and flesh and was melancholy
and very unhappy. I employed the best phy
sicians who said the trouble was with my
nerves, but they were unable to do me an;
good. I tried several advertised medicines
and at last began taking Dr. Miles' Nervine.
By the time the first bottle was half gone I
could sleep some, could eat a hide and the
world seemed to get right side up again. I

do not neglect this opportunity of

like others who have said: "O! how
I wish that I had taken instructions
when I had the chance." If our field
instructors call on you do not let
them go away without making a full
explanation of our work in the school
room, but if they do not call at your

duties to your daughters and teach
them 'useful knowledge; whereby, if
necessitv demands it, they can earn an

To Adorn the Hair.
There never was a time when so
many things are being designed for
the hair in the evening. Almost every
one wears a big black bow of velvet in
the head after dark if they attempt
nothing more dressy. Silk roses with
long stems are in great demand and
are pinned into the pompadour with a
rose coming nearly to the forehead a
little to the right side.
The flowers mat-.-h in color the rib
bons on the gown. Huge black silk,
roses and buds are very stylish worn
in this way. Plaited rosettes of tulle
are constantly seen, and for an evening
party the tulle is spangled with silver
or gold or jet. Women who like black
are wearing small bandeaux of jet
around the top of the head, with an
upright jet ornament in front. These
they wear for any evening affair.
Young girls are getting wreaths of
pink geraniums or tiny roses or forget
nienots and winding them about the
knot on top of the head.
And again and again let me add that
ornamented combs are neither pretty
nor fashionable. Two small side combs
to keep the pompadour In place and a
long flat tomb across the back of the
head to keep the aliape perfect or a
little tiny circlet of shell down near
the collar will do.
Simple, Though Smart.
Here is a design for a simple though
smart blue serge dress wbicb should
be a useful thing for outdoor wear.
About the bottom Is a band of blue
and white checked silk, which, with
the upper collar of embroidered muslin

and the little vest of hemstitched tuck
ed muslin, gives just enough color to
the frock. Tbe vest may be bought
ready made if desired. There is also a
touch of the checked silk at the waist
and wrist, and large flat buttons of
metal are prominent. New York Mail

To what clever brain do we owe the
latest Idea for trimming for an evening

smartness? Thi i velvet, which is
embroidered and beaded and then cut

work of art. It so far has only been
made in bands, but will soon be used
