Neuralgia and Extreme Nervousness.
EVER since- I was eighteen years old
until I learned of Dr. Miles' Kestora
tivo Remedies, I suffered from sick
boadache and extreme nervousness and dys?
pepsia. In time heart diseaso developed. I
was treated by several doctors with no re?
lief. Severe palpitation with pain In left
breast, shortness of breath, and smothering
spells made mo most miserable. 1 pro?
cured l'r. Miles' Restorative Nervine and
New Heart Cure and took them alternately
as directed. Improvement began at once
and increased so rap?
idly t hat Inside of six
mouths I increased
thirty six pounds in
weigh ~. All pain in
the heart is gone, and
the nervousness bos
wholly left, me,"

A Russian journal thut has recently
tome unilcr our notice calls attention
to the fact that for some twenty years
past the inhabitants of a malarial lo?
cality In the Government of Kharkov
have used powdered crabs with great
success In the case of fevers. Tho
powder is prepared in the following
way: Live crabs are poured over
with the ordinary whisky until they
get asleep; they are then put on a
bread-pan in a hot oven, thoroughly
iricd and pulverized, and the powder
passed through a fine sieve. One dose,
a ti aspoonful, is generally sufficient to
cure the intermittent fever; in very
obstinate cases a sorond dose is re?
quired. Bach dose is invariably pre?
ceded by a glass of aloe brandy as a
purgative. The powder is used in
that locality in preference to quinine.
So says the journal. We will not
vouch for it.

ASTOUNDING POSSIBILITIES OF A
It Is Used In TnniiltiK? An Industry Tlmt
Converts Desert* Into Fruitful Flel?ls?
The Story <?r Its Development In as Inter
eating mum Romance.
Ctnnlgre! Perhaps tho word looks
strange to unaccustomed eyes, and
there may ho some hesitation in its
utterance. "Kah-nah-gray," the ln
d.an pronounce it, and it is composed
of two Spanish words, which are an
equivalent for "sour dock." Canaigre
is the aristocrat of tho dock tribe, and
being of use to man, is like most of
nature's choice gifts, placed ns if
wore upon the top shelf, hard to reach,
and accessible only to tho persistent.
The habitat of canaigre in the Uni?
ted States is Southern Texas, New
Mexico and tho deserts of California
and Arizona and throughout the whole
southern portion of the Colorado des?
ert straggling patches of canaigre
grow. Until within three years, how
over, there was not a single canaigre
farm in the whole world, and fow per?
sons hnve tho slightest idea of this
useful plant or know what its cultiva?
tion moans to the United States and
to one of the most important practical
Tho process of leather-making has
boon subject to fewer changes than
that of any other manufacture, and
has advanced with slower pace. Un?
til within our own century primitive
methods wore almost wholly employed.
Within the lust sixty years improved
machines for handling and depllttatlng
hides have come'into use. but until the
discovery of canaigre there has hardly
been any real improvement in tanning
agents in a hundred years.
hi a few hours, varying with the sort
of hide to be tanned, the acid of tho
CRi.nlgre has done Its work, and the
saving o* three months' time and a
vast deal of human labor In the pro?
duction of leather indicates that even?
tually the whole leather-using world
is to be the beneficiary of this humble
Titr. CAVAiniiK pi.akt.
The cultivation of the plant is form?
ed as nearly as possible upon nature's
model, and there are only three canai?
gre farms in the world. Two of these
arc located in California and the third
in Arizona. All of the plantations are
reclaimed desert land, the soil a fine
sand, pale in color, and apparently
Canaigre is the most easily cultiva?
ted of any known crop, as the planting
and digging arc done with an ordinary
potato digger; the slicing is also done
by machinery; the only hand work be?
ing the preparation of the cuttings for
planting. It has been found by actual
experiment that the cost of an acre of
canaigre. including tho planting, cul?
tivating, irrigating and harvesting, is
(16.50 The returns vary from $05 to
$75 per ton, sliced, and the yield is
from twelve to twenty tons to the acre
on new land, and ises higher with
cultivation. The d ,lng shrinks the
product two thirds, but the producer
can count on a de r gain of $200 to
the aero on land which will probably
cost him less than he would pay for
farm land in any part of the United
States. He has no fear of decay of
Ills crop, and ho doubt about finding a
market, for should every desort aero
in California ; ;??! Arizona he planted
with canaigro, ihr? supply would still
fall far short of tho demand.
One of the California canaigro plan?
tations consists of L'2.1100 acres, and

Canaigre culture began after the
World's Columbian Exposition. A gen?
tleman resident for a time in Mexico
had witnessed the tanning of leather
by tho canaigre root fourteen years
ago, and, having a curiosity to learn
the nature of plant, sent specimens to
Boston for analysis. This was the
beginning of a serifs of tests costing
$52,000 in the aggregate, and demon
s.rating beyond a doubt the properties
of canaigre. An experimental station
was formed by the Government in Ari?
zona, and the culture of the plant
closely studied. A first award for ex?
tracted tannin and for canaigre chips
was made at the exposition, and since
that time canaigro-growlng has be?
come an established industry, and one
that is likely to turn the desert into
fruitful Holds. Its possibilities aro

fornia will probably be as famous for
Its conaigi'6 as for if;', oranges, and

Putting the baby

this motherly duty
rto a nurse. Some
mothers hardly see
jtbeir baby the live?
long day. This is
.not because they
rare without moth?
er-love or the nat
I ural impulses of a
. womanly woman,
lit is because of
II b e i r own i 11 ?
health and broken

cause baby is also
sickly and peevish.
This unfortunate state of affairs might have
been avoided bad the mother, during the
period of expectant motherhood, taken the
right care of the delicate organs that make
maternity possible. A woman should al?
ways keep these important organs well and
strong. Her own health and that of her
child depend upon it.
The best medicine for prospective moth?
ers is Dr. Picrce's Pavoritc Prescription. It
makes healthy and strong the organs that
bear the burdens of maternity. It cures all
disease and weakness. It makes comfort?
able the period preceding motherhood and
renders the advent of baby easy and nearly
painless. It insures a healthy child. The
pains and suffering that women endure, as
a result of weakness of the distinctly wo?
manly organism, vanish under its use. All
good druggists sell it. There is nothing
else "just as good."
