She was a bright, eagle-eyed i'arty
With a high, throbbing Forehead, and
she was always on the lookout for New

the Lady's Ilouxchntd Friend and read
about a Cure for Chilblains she would
cut out the Article with he Button
Hole Scissors, and then tor Days after
ward she would bo snooping around
for a Case of Chilblains so that she
could work on it.
She had about 3000 of these Home
Remedies up her Sleeve, and any time
that Arthur complained of the slight
est Ache or Pain she lit on him like a
Bee on a Flower and started In with
one of ber famous Treatments.

"I wrote you for advice," writes Lelia Hagood,
of Sylvia, Term., "about my terrible backache and
monthly pains in my abdomen and shoulders. I
had suffered this way nine years and five doctors
had failed to relieve me. On your advice I aook
Wine of Cardui, which at once relieved my pains
and now I am entirely cured. I am sure that
Cardui saved my life."
It is a safe and reliable remedy for all female
diseases, such as peri
odical pains, irregulari
ty, dragging down sen
sations, headache, diz
ziness, backache, etc.

Arthur strappedt6 the Operating-Ta
ble. Ho had been blistered In so many
different Places and handed so many
kinds of Dope that he became Leery, In
time, and always claimed to be feeling
Immense, even though be did not think
he would live through the Day.
She had some awful Things ribbed
up for him any time that he showed
up with a Bad Cold. She would give
him Vinegar Tea and a Lump of Sugar
soaked In Kerosene. Then she would
parboil his Feet and band him a few
Onion Poultices, and put him to Bed
with all the Covers over him and let
him lie there and Sozzle.
Sometimes she almost drove him to
Drink, but he did not dare to drink
very much for fear that she would give
him some Secret Cure iu his Coffee and
thereby rob hlni of a Thirst which he
prized very highly.
The Missus was a firm Believer in all
these IIow-To Flim-Flams that run in
the Monthly Magazines:
How to Beautify the Home without
spending a Cent.
Ilow to live on 78 Cents a Week.
How to become a Lady Sandow by
exercising .1 Minutes every Day.
How to lift a $2,000 Mortgage on a
Salary of $10 per Week.

and was burning a High-Art Design
on a Wooden Tlatter. Not one of the
Fads got past Experimental Lizzie.
She took a Fall out of every One.
Sometimes when Arthur would come
down to Breakfast, ready to punish a
few Liuks of Farm Sausage, he would
find in front of htm a Bowl full of
what looked a good deal like Asbestos
"Is it to eat?" he asked, backing off.

little Herbert arrived. When Herbert
was 3 Days old Mamma began to read
Books on the Child Mind. Within a
Month she had little Herby propped up
in the Crib doing Kindergarten Stunts,
with two or three Old Maids off on tne
Bide Lines coaching to bent the Band.
Arthur would butt in occasionally
and try to protect his helpless Off
spring, and then he would get a hard
Call-Down. The Missus had a large
Scrap-Book full of Helpful Hints to
She started in at Page 1 and gave
Herbert the whole Works. Whenever
any one who knew all about the Caro
of Children brought her a new Prep
aration, she either fed it to little Herby
or else rubbed it on his Back.
Arthur had the old fashioned Notion
that all a Kid needed was a Milk Diet
and something Bublior on which to
chew, but the Chief of the Exierlment
Station had a lot of Club Theories to
be tested, and she was working on lit

This made it Fine for Father, le

had to stay right there in the House

"He's a Womirr," said Arthur to his
Friends at the Club. "If he lives
through it he'll make a grand Foot
Ball Player some Day."
When Herbert was G years of Age
the Scientific Mother had him read

hi in Mother Goose on the quiet, but
was headed off.
Still, Arthur was not discouraged.

Sure enough, when Teacher wrote a
Note and said that Angel had shied a
Brick at a Teamster, and, furthermore,
had licked the inoffensive Son of n
Poor Hod-Carrier, the Experimental
Mother threw a Back-Twister and
wondered why the Club System had
failed to work out.
