of diseases that follow a tor
pid liver and impure blood,
nothing can take the place
of Dr. Pierce's Golden Med
ical Discovery. Nothing will,
after you have seen what it
does. It prevents and cures
bv removing the cause. It
invigorates the liver, purifies
and enriches the blood, sharp
ens the appetite, improves di
gestion, and builds up both
strength and flesh, when re
duced below the standard
of health. For Dyspepsia,
"Liver Complaint," Scrofula,
or any blood-taint it's a posi
tive remedy. It acts as no
other medicine docs. For that '
reason, it's sold as no other
medicine is. It's guaiiviiccd
to benefit or cure, or the
money is refunded.

Ruth Ashmore, writing in The Home
Journal, s.ivs: "It's about the brothers.
Your brother and mine get their ideas of
what girls are from their sisters, so I want
every one of you to learu not to answer
them quickly or indifferently, but to feel
that it is worth your while to be as attract
ive, as lovitig and as sveeet to 'brother' as
possible. 1 want you never to find it a
trouble to that pleasantly and sensibly
with him. I want you to be interested in
whatever is of interest to him. 1 want you
to make him feel how good a girl can Ixj
and how sweet a good girl is; then you are
doing for him the liest thing iu the world
you are making him so appreciative of
the virtuous woman, whose price is above
rubies, that he will never want to see or
speak to any other kind. That's what I
want rou to do for your brothers. You see
it was a very little scolding after all, but I
wanted to point a good moral."
The Month of May.
Sfime one drops a rose
On the window ledpe.
Through the open door
Some one waves a vine.
Tendrils green and fine
Fleck the sunny floor
In a shadow dance.
Who is this that stands.
At the threshold's edge.
Fair, with flower full hands.
Shy, with waiting eyes;
Greet her, heart, and gay
Let your welcome be.
This is lovely May.
Best and brightest she.

Coantinj Chickens IJefore They Hatch.
As a rule it is considered rather a rash
undertaking to count chickens before they
are hatched, but the good folks in Scotland
have entirely overcome this difficulty. It
is as simple as possible. The hen has only
to be set on an odd number of eggs and they
will not be addled. But there is another
danger namely, that of the proverbial
blind hen to be uverted; and this is done
by placing the eggs under the mother bird
only after sunset, or the chickens will be
blind. And while she is at it she may as
well further propitiate the magicians that
are bent on frustrating her future plans
for the hencoop by repeating a formula of
which, for some unaccountable reason, they
staud in great awe. It is, in the proper
A' in thegeethir,

And here, in conclusion, are a few more
useful items concerning eggs:
To hang an egg laid on Ascension Day in
the root of a house preserveth the same
from all harts.
If you have a desire to see the ladies of
the broomstick on May Day their festival
you must take an egg laid on Maundy
Thursday and stand where four roads meet;
or else you must go into church on Good
Friday, but come out before the blessing.
An egg hung up in a house is a lucky
amulet; hence the ostrich eggs, and cocoa
nuts resembling them, in the east.
