The hand of tivie
deals lightly with a woman in
perfect health. But all func
tional derangements and dis
orders peculiar to women
leave their mark. You r eedn't
have them. Dr. Pierce's Fa
vorite Prescription conies to
your rescue as no other medi
cine can. It cures them. For
periodical pains, prolapsus and
other displacements, bearing
down sensations, and a.l " fe
male complaints " and weak
nesses, it is a positive remedy.
It is a powerful, restorative
tonic and nervine, imparting
strength to the whole system
in general, and to the uterine
organs and appendages in par
ticular. It keeps years from
your face and figure but adds
years to your life. It's guar
antccd to give satisfaction in
every case. If it doesn't,
your money is returned.

DEER HUNTING IN THE ROCKIES.
In a Few Tears There Will lie No More
Buckskin for Moccasin and Leggina,
'The hunting of deer in the Rockies i fust.
driving them north into British America,
and in a few more years onr Indians will
nave no more buckskins for levins and
moccasins. Only the skin of the heavy
hided deer can be used, that of the antelone
and white tailed varieties being too tender
lor long service, says The Great Divide, in
which we find the following:
ine Apaches make their moccasins and
leggins iu one piece, in tlie style of hunt
ing boots, while most of the Indians to the
north wear slippers and legsrins. When
ever a deer is killed and cut up the bladder
is caietully cut away, cleaned and filled
with the brain of the animal, and the little
bay is most carefully guarded until a
stream is reacbe J, where the hide may lie
cured. The entire skin is then put into
running water and weighted down with
stones. In four or five hours the soaking
nas swelled it and loosed the hair at the
roots, when it is takeu out and stretched
on a frame, while the owner, with the aid
of a oleansed rib of the animal, scrapes it
down until the hair is rnbled off, very
much in the same manner as overheated
horses are scraped to remove the foam and
sweat. The skin is then pulled and
stretched for three or four hours, and at
the same time oiled with the brain until
il is perfectly dry, soft and pliable, when it
is ready for use. When a tan color is de
sirable it is soaked in an infusion of red
bark. The sole of the moccasin is always
made of the raw hide of beef cattle and
sewed to the upper with the sinews of the
Chamois skins should never be left in
water after using, but should be wruncout
and hungup to dry, spread out carefully so
as to leave no wrinkles; neither should they
te used to wipe oil colors, as paint stains
form hard spot.s and help the skin to wear
out sooner. Chamois was never intended
to wipe the face and hands with, and this
should lie avoided also, as the skins are lia
ble to become creasy thereby. Never put a
chamois skin into warm water nothing
above lukewarm, as it will curl up, become
thick, tough and useless. To bring back
chamois that has been ruined by grease,
paint, or has been used as a towel until it
has all t tie resemblance of a dirty old rag.
the following is recommended: Take a
bucket of clean water, making it middling
strong with ammonia, soak the skin in it
over night, and the next morning rinse it
out in pure water, after which use.freelyof
pure white castile soap and water. It is
claimed that the process will insure a very
good skin again, available for considerable
further service. The whole operation, aside
from the soaking, need take no longer than
a quarter of an hour, and in reality the skin
after this treatment is, according to Hide
and Leather, better than at first, having
liecome thoroughly broken in and free from
lint and other impurities.
Custom of Dining at a Late Hour.
M. Franklin explains in one of his curious
essays on the private life of the forefathers
of the present generation of Parisians that
the custom of dining at a late hour is noth
ing but a return to the habit of the Seven
teenth century, and that the Eighteenth
century alone is responsible for all the
shifting and changing that has confused
and worried the would-be cheerful diner.
The only difference between the present
day and the Seventeenth century is that
what was then called supper is now known
by the grandiloquent name of dinner.
Charles had his breakfast at 10 o clock,
and only after having attended mass, and
his chroniclers report that be supped "in a
very good time." The oldest French cook
ery book, dating from the Seventeenth cent
ury, fixes the breakfast hour at the same
time at which it is now fixed among the
upper classes. "Noliody, says this old ora
cle, "should eat before the hour of il, unless
be lie ill or feeble." It then goes on to put
down a law the application of which at the
present time would put most people into
rather an awkward position.
To eat once a day, says The Menagier in
quaint old French, is to lead an angelic life.
To eat twice is to be human.
But to eat three or four times is "vie de
Effects of Music on Animals.
The keeper of a menagerie was once
asked whether the baud had any effect on
"To be sure it does," said he; "they like
it, and therefore it does them good. If you
were to come in and look at them in a
morning when the baud is" perambulating
the town, you would see many of them
the more savage beasts in particular, dull
and moping, aud either sitting or lying in
their dens. We who travel with wild
beasts cannot, of course, give them the
room they ought to have, and being
cribbed up iu show boxes they degenerate
for want of exercise, do what we will with
them. But it would be very much worse,
I reckon, if it were not for the music.
When they hear the band strike up they
rouse themselves, and begin taking what
exercise they can, the beasts of prey by
walking backward and forward, and the
others by repeating the movements nat
ural to them when at liberty. The birds
will begin to chaffer and plume themselves
at the sound, and even tne suaKes ar, limes
