began his talk yesterday with an audi
once of one. It was a l'at, Ileshy young
man of 25 with a double ehin and a red
neck-tie, and "fakth" was written
across his face in letters broad and
"Gentlemen," began the vender, a.

bottles of my world pannersea will in

"Just what I want," replied the
young man, and he laid down 10 cents
and took a bottle. ^
"Gentlemen,'' continued the vender,
"do youlhave backache candechills? If
so, I warrantti8 pannersea to cure you
at two doses. It has been tried by Kings
and Emperors, and it has give- tail
".Been looking for Just this cure,"
interrupted the young lan, and he
paid lor a second bottle and fell back
Into his old tracks.
"Gentlemen, it gives me pleasure to
assert that this medleino was origi
nally Invented as a cure lor headache."
softly remarked the seller. "When I
say it will cure the worst case of head
ache ever known In from three to live
minutes, I solemnly mean what I say.
It has been tried in 10,000 cases."
"Might as well knock my headache
while I'm about it," said the young
man to himself and he laid down a
quarter and received Ills correct change
- for another bottle.
The young man was still the only
audience. . Falth brightened oi his
face, and he laid down 10 cents with
"My old liver is always kicking up
trouble, and I guess I'll cure her I"
"My fellow-citizens," remarked the
seller as he mopped his face, "are you
troubled with toothache, . cutaneous
diseases, palpitation of the heart, loss
of sleep, or in-growing toe-nails?"
"We are1" solemilly repliC( the
young man, and lie invested lin another

"Hlanged If we ain't!" whispered
- the young sellow with the double-chin,
and he pocketed his sixth bottle and
- walted for further oratory. ils re
markable faith staggered the dealer,
who finally said:
"I guess you have had enough for
this time. Take according to directions
and you will soon feel the beneficial
"Yes. I wlli--thank you ever so
much-yes-,'' stammered the young
man. "This. 'ere rmedy isn't good
for fits, is it?"
"Well, well,'' slowly answered the

"Yes that's the way. If you bring

Ilow often the soft, flossy hair of
children is seen Crimped, pinchied and
curled, and nothing is so injurious to
tile ultimlate health of the hair as this
sort of treatment. Wee creatures of
thlree or four yaa and een younger
* are arrayed In curl papers by affection
ate and admiring mothers wvho are bent
upon making the chIldren chirming,
* anld who do not stop to consider howv
*far they may be defeating thleir ownl
ends by tile action, or hlow much p~ain
they may be0 indilcting on the objects of
their kind solicitude. An authority on
that subject says: "Up to the age of
six, chlildren retain what Is called their
'baby hair,' whlich Is injured1, not im
* proved, by cutting. Ini its soft and
delicateo slkiness, it Is like tile plumage
* of a younrg bird, and Is quite different
from the harsher hair which succeeds
it. .If the hair curls naturally it looks
charming dressed in that fashIon, but
putting it In papers is sure to Injure it
and pull it out by tile r'bots. 'The use
of curling irons is atil more objection
able; anything which tangles and cuts
the hair is bad in the extreme, and It, is
to be regretted that mothers draw so
heavily on the capital of their chlildren's
hlair Instead of using the yearly increas
*ing interest of Its beauty and valuie."
One dlisastro3us resul~t arising from the
prevalent custom of allowing the hair
to flow unconfined down (lie shoulders

This has been attribu ted to the heat of

Til PRACT11.0E4 OF F"AL. PL.owIxO,
Disiategration Is one of the great se
crets of the benenciil effects from 0tl
plowing. Its action is both mechanieal
atu chemieal. Land when hroken by
the plough holds a greater percentage
of-titer. It freezes wion lin this wet
state. then it thaw.s and the idisintegra
tion Is complete. All molt tire receiv

pare it for any solvents that may be
applied. Tie uneartliig of pestilent
Insects from their comfortable iIding
places in the fall, and exposing them to
the weather is one of the Incalculable
benefits arising from fall ploning.
Tihe turming under of cockle-burrs, ox
eye daisy, foxtail and other noxious
Weeds with the strl)blo of the grain
fields before their seeds mature Is still
another benefit, as these growths are
destroyed and forced to serve the land
they previously burdened by enriching
It. Farmers who are constantly coni
plaining that plowing under certaln
weeds only tends. to a more luxirlois
growth, tire reminded that weeds
which are propagated by seed should
be turned under beforo the seed ripens.
If the process is delaycd, a foul crop of
weed seed Is planted instead of desti oy
ed. Cultivators who understand tite
good effects of fall plowing, some of
which, by the way, Is best accomplish
ed during the summer, will soont set
tile plows.moving II they aro not alrca

grain, fall seedings, at( for corn next.
PORKC OR BACON.-lt is oft en a ques
tion with farmers whether to sell their
hors in tle fall as pork, or convert
them into bacon, to be reserved for a
better market during the year? 'l'his
will depend, In part, upon the locality
of the farmer. As a general tile, if
ie lives a considerable distance from
market, then his chances for prollt lit
baconing his pork are greater, because
lie not only allows im1t.self more 11ime
and opportunity to ol.tain better prices,
bit secures a considerable reduction in
the cost of transportation. ost far
lmters tire accustomed to piit aiway pork
enough to serve their famlies the en..
tire year, and in doing so are sipposed
it) secure their meat at less cost tan to
sell it as pork and hbuy their bncon . It,
therefore, the praelice holds good in
such cases, why should i1 not hold
equally good with all the hogs lie hus
to kill? It Is trite, the answer to this
question is somiewhat conditonal; but
thenIt it may be assunted as generally
Lrue that the farmer who bacons his
hogs has a nuciih better marttin for pro
fit than he Who sells Iis an I imtals in te
shape of pork. Again, we have known
mien to make it a business of purchias
Ing pork in the fall for the purpose of
converting It into bacon, and mtade
money by the operation. Antd if these
men could afford to Pay cash for the
article and tien make it proflitable to
convert it Into bacon, It does seem to
us that a faimer is acting unwisely
who would thtus surrender a part of his
Jigitinate prollts by selling his hogs its
THE RAG WEED-ITS UsEs. -Some
farmers do not relish this massive
growth of weeds. If clover isaexcel

not tihe rag weed? hiere a matss 01'
vegetable matter Is turnued down and1(
phosphate, pllaster or lime sitbverted

phates act not alone ats a fertilzer but
as a ictans of maiking thait wh iteh Is in

raw vegetable tmattetr into sustentane

effect as we ver'y well know. The

A Great French Philosopher
once deflued a doctor to be "a person who
pours drugs about which ho knows little, Into
a body concerning which he knows loss, in
order to curo diseasoi of which ho knows noth
Jug." and the empirical, barbarous, usole"s
treatment of piles since the days of Hypoo
rates, when doctors burned the tumors off
with red bot Iron, down to tho absurd wonder
cures and nostrums of irodern quacks, would
seem to bear testimony to the wisdom of the
Frenchman. The groat modern benefactor of
the modern race is now admitted by every one
to be Dr. Silsben. the di-covoror of tn in falliblo
pile remedy in Anakesis. This miraculous euro
for the most painful of all diseases is regardol
as the scioutillo triumph of tho ago, and is
prescribed and ondorsed by physicians of all
schools. It is not taken interna'ly but applied
as a suppository directly to the affected part.
It glyos instant relief, soothes pamn as a poti
tico, pressos up thxo tumors as an instrument,
and ultimately cures plios by Its medication.

the fever is rertricted to the neighbor
hood of Inundated lands or nixarshies, or
pon1ds of variable level, becauso inl
these situations the abnlance of'- de
aying vegetable substance is very
great. In such couinLrics the opinion
is general, and Is perhaps accurate,
that the poison is of marshy origin;
but In countries where tihe whole soul
is rich enough to be .n this particui'lar
like these marshy lands, It has been
long recognized that the poison had nto
necessary relation to marshy situations,
but was In facit tellurie, and that a
short rain which only slightly mois
tened the surface of the earth, and a
few succeeding hours of sunshine, sup
plied all the conditions necessary for
the elaboration of the poison that piro
duced this fever. But what was that
poion? Science failed to solve that
problem. But it did not fail for want
Dfeff'ort. An excee(lingly great amoun t.
of ingenuity, industry and trained skill
has 1or agen bieen devoted to the labor
of hunting down, Isolating and de
scribing the offending atoms that have
made and still make uninhabitable some
of the fairest regions of the earth. All
effort was vain, however, and no satis
i'actory answer hais ever been made to
the query, What precisely 1s the poi
son that causes this disease? It has
remained a mystery. Within a few
years ingenious endeavors to solve this
problem have multiplied. In the pre
sent year some experiments have been
made at Rome whic: appear to be more
fruitful than any hitherto recorded ; or,
in the words of the report read to the
Academy of Rome, "Llhe Investigation
was rewarded with coinpletoe sticcess."
These experiments were conducted by
Signor Tomnnasi of Rome, and Profes
sor Klebs of Prague. They toget1er
spent some weeks in the Agro Roma no,
and made repeated examiniations of the
lower strata of the atmospthere, of thbe
soil anld of stagnant wvaters, and sue
needed in isolating a microscopic funi
gus, specimens ot which, being p~laced
nnider the skill of healthy dogs, caused
dIstinct and regular paroxysmns of' in
termnittent fever, and proedhe in the
spleens of these animals that pecuhlar'
condition whiich is a recogntized part of
the pathology of this disease. In the
medical wvorld tis &chievemient ninust
be regfarded as an iportant one. Tfo
