A (iraln of Comfort.
For tl.f woman who knows that
iet youth is passing from her and
wh looks with apprehension toward
approaching' old age, there is cheer
i the opening stanza of Rabbi Ken
Kzara, that beautiful poem into
which Robert Browning lias put so
many thoughts. If she has to look
back upon a youtli of neglected op
portunities nnd wasted days, there
is infinite comfort in the knowledge
that the last of life may atone in a
measure for the first; that it is still
possible to make old age good and
beautiful if she will have faith and
take heart. Or, if life for her has
been full of striving toward the true
and the pure, there is inspiration in
the thought, that, even though the
first part ha been of account, the
last may be of more; that it is pos
sible to live more and more grandly
unto the end And for both it is a
source o! comfort that there i- a
(divine plan w inch embraces life
fir tun beginning to end. and a divine
hand which leads all the way. Here
are the lints:
Krow old along with me!
The best is yet to be
The last of life for which the first was

I Wonderful Vitalizing Remedy
for llody and Mind.
Rev. W. D. Shea, of the North (Jeor-
g4a Conference, gives his experience in
the use of the tablets:
"Two-years ago I realized that I was
broken-down old man, anil felt the in
itrmitiea common to old people loss of
memory, tep (altering, and felt that my
life work was about done. Seeing an
sdvertisemen in the Wesleyan Christi
an Advocate in regard to the wonder
Oul erf ects of Haggard's Specific Tablets,
Mict having known Dr. Haggard inti
mately for twenty years, I decided to
try his remedy. I found immediate
good results, refreshing sleep, belter
appetite and restored circulation, with
increasing vltalitv, and I now take
pleasure in testifying to the beneficent
results of mv own ease and commend
ing Ir. Haggard and his valuable dis
coveries to all who need a wonderful

"Neck fixinirs" are elaborate.
This is necessary, because the big
hat and the small one of the mo
meat, too demands that ruffs and
not flat collars, shall be worn to
complete the picturesque and
artistic effect, which is what the
new millinery is striving after.
There are muslin and lace bows
for everyday wear; velvet ruches,
feather boas and crisp bows of rib
bon. The velvet ruche, which is
really the latet thing, is becoming
to young and old, and is made nar
row for the neck that is short and
wide for the neck that is long.
Thick boas of plisse mull have lit
tle rings of small ostrich tips en
circling them at intervals, with long,
full ends, that reach to the waist
line, where they are fastened by a
brooch, such as have been used, and
are still, to fasten the tips of ostrich
The boas and ruches worn with
the Gainsborough and other large
hats are wide, coming out over the
shoulders in a fashion that isdariug,
it is so extreme. The extremely
wide boas of gauzy materials, how
ever, are reserved for evening .wear,
the mode of the moment being to
wear with low-cut gowns fluffy boas
and large hats.
An exquisitely fine evening boa is
made of narrow black lace, put on
to tiny ruffles of white mousseline
de soie. These ruffles are so many,
so full and set so close together that
they make a boa quite as round as
those of ostrich feathers. The ends
of the mousseline boa are Ion', of
the gauzy stuff, accordion-pleated.
The silken mousseline in delicate
colors and trimmed with white lace
or frills of the narrowest and finest
"footing" are very charming ad
juncts of toilet for the debutante.
Style of the Season.
Fur will edge cloth and silk gowns
and will take a conspicuous place
among the popular trimmings for
evening gowns. Russia is still the
mote in Fashion's eye. And iu Rus
sia there is no limit to the use of fur.
Old-fashioned shawls of white or
black lace are draped apron fashion
over handsome skirts of satin, and
form a modish style of trimming for
the skirts of evening gowns.
Velveteen is used in the make-up
of some very smart Russian blouses
that are trimmed at wrist, neck and
side with fur. Bronze-green vel
veteen, trimmed with ottr fur, or
Rusiiin sable, is tho favorite,
Odd arrangements of frilling, lace,
net, fur braid, velvet, fringes, etc.,
are very much used on bodices,
rediiigotes, and princesses dresses
fastened at the left side; and a very
dressy appearance is imparted to
otherwise simple gowns by the ad
dition of these trimmings.
Silk sashes with embroidered or
fringed ends are very much in
vogue, or will be as the season ad
vances, for they have been reintro
duced by the leading designers of
styles, both here and abroad. If you
have old sashes of ttiis order for
they have been "the thing" before
you are fortunate. I have recently
seen a white satin sash with ends
elaborately wrought in silver and
jewels that I was told had cost the
modest sum of flOO. This but proves
that the sash will be again a wel
The owl's head, with solemn eyes
and fluffy breast, is a smart trim
ming for toques. Pheasants' tails
are also a very stylish finish for
English round hats. White lace
veils in point applique will be ex
tensively used to soften felt brims.
The French wedding gown is a per
fectly plain affair of satin or poplin,
often without a bit of trimming

Simple and all white bridesmaids'
gowns of cream cashmire veloute

velvet with a twist of black satin in
the folds, while large white felt hats

Gold and silver embroideries are
being used rather extensively on
imported gowns, trimmings that are
effective on occasions, but which
should be avoided on toilets that are
to be worn in the light of day out of
doors. For afternoon reception and
carriage gowns, they are effective
and not out of place, but find their
true mission on evening gowns, both
ceremonious and Informal. Little
gold or silver fringes are daintily
used sometimes or tiny ball fringe.
And that reminds me of the small
silk passementerie or metal pendants
that are used occasionally to tip rib
bons and points and odds and ends
of that kind.
ltlack taffeta frocks are being
ordered by many of the smartest
dressed women. A black taffeta
frock is always useful and should be
included in every woman's ward
robe whether simple or elaborate.
The newest black taffeta gowns
have skirts frilled with several bias
ruffles, these often bound with vel
vet or plaid silk. The bodices are
also fancifully trimmed. The plain
black frocks are smartened by white
collars and cuffs of lace, or delicate
embroidery, or white linen - fox
morning wear. (
A Dreadful Edict.
That female charms, Btrong when
merely natural, prove irregistibly
bewitching when art is summoned
to the aid of nature, we see abund
antly proved every day, and the
ruler of France In 1770 promulgated
this edict for the protection of his
male subjects: "Whosoever, by
means of red or white paint, per
fumes, essences, artificial teeth,
false hair, cottonwool iron corsrtK,
shoes with high heels, or raise hips
shall seek to entice into the bonds of
matrimony any male subject of his
majesty, shall be prosecuted for
witchcraft and declared incapable
of matrimony!" One can only
imagine what an outcry there would
be if such an edict were promulga
ted now. How seriously it would,
were it put in forco, affect the pros
pects of many a "m mien fair to see"
is known by no one, and can only be
surmised by the high priests of the
mysteries of artificial aids to beauty.

The Ten Commandment of Matrimony.
It is claimed that Theodore Parker
just previous to his wedding day in
scribed in his diary ten beautiful
resolutions which he termed as the
"ten commandments of matri
mony." They are as follows, given
here as a guide to husbands:
1. Never, except for the best rea
son, to oppose my wife's will.
2. To discharge all duties for her
3. Never to scold.
4. Never to look cros at her.

A mother who found herself be
coming peevish and exacting, says
a writer in fnrpr.r'lfi Jlrtzar, asked a
sister who was visiting her to keep a
strict account of the number of
times in one day in which she (the
mother) said "Don't!" to her four
children, respectively ten, seven,
four and two years of age. The con
scientious sister-in-law kept a care
ful memorandum, and when the
children were in their beds fcr the
night showed the tired mother the
record. From eight in the morning
until the same hour In the evening
she had said "Don't!" 87 times. Af
ter serious thought the mother came
to the conclusion that at least one
half of those "don'ts" had been un
necessary. She had grown into the
habit of uttering the prohibitory
word on all occasions. Ttie nervous
mothers of our day would do well to
fellow her example and limit the
number of their "don'ts," which re
often spoken with regard to inno
cent, although perhaps noisy, amuse
ments. Christianity wants nothing so
much in the world as sunny people,
and the old are hungrier for love
than for bread, and the oil of joy is
verv chean. and if vou can helrj the
poor on with a garment of praise, it
will be better for them than blankets.
The Cheerful Woman.
There are emergencies in every
household which call for the dis
play of a statesman's skill. The
cheerful Jwoman is preeminent on
such occasions. She conquers the
grim uncle or the dyspeptic cousin
with her Infective cheerfulness, ana
her servants recognize her as their
friend and ally in all matters that
are essential to their welfare. The
length of time she keeps her ser
vants is a source of wonderment to
her less fortunate friends, but the
secret of it is her own winsome dis
position. She soothes the tired
worker with a word of kind com
mendation where another might
make a querulous complaint. When
direction is needed she delivers it In
such a gentle albeit firm manner
that is has no sting of reproof.
This gentle, tactful woman is not
afflicted with work that is from "sun
to un," or that is "never done."
Slie does not moralize -much, per-.
naps, Dut by some means sne man
ages to accomplish a great deal of
work and have plenty of time at her
command. It is by means of that
same cheerfulness of disposition.
There is less delay in executing her
commands, and she possesses the
gift of "timing her turns" so that
sometimes it seems as if the "fairies
did help her." And the fairies of
gentle breeding and of kind heart do
help her. Thus philosophizes the
Preparation for Sleep.
Sleep is a state requiring careful
preparation, without which its best
results can not De obtained, writes a
Ehysician in the Philadelphia Times
lost women labor under the delu
sion that sleep is a natural function
and that slumber is a state that re
quires no preparation. Given a bed
ana a certain nour oi tne evening,
and sleep follows, is their simple
creed. As a matter of fact, they
find that they do not always sleep
when they think they should. In
the first place, the bedroom must be
as quiet as the neighborhood will
permit. It must be well ventilated.
The air in it should not be vitiated
by the burning of gas throughout
the evening.' If possible, gas should
not be burned at all, but candles
should furnish whatever light is re
quired. The bed should be turned bo
that the morning sun will not shine
directly in the eyes of the sleeper.
A screen pla6eH" between the foot of
the bed and the window helps to
prolong the morning nap after sun
rise. The bed should not be downy.
Feathers may be luxurious, but they
are unhygienic. A hair mattress,
with no pillow at all, or at most a
very small one. not only conduces to
the greatest amount of repose, but
helps to give an diet carriage and
other things wine'1 sleepers like to
possess in their waking hours. The
coverlids should be as light as is
consistent with proper warmth.
When her room and her bed are
properly arranged, the wise woman
considers herself. She goes to sleep
as clean as warm water and soap
will make her, knowing that a warm
bath is the most restful, sleep-provoking
thing in the world. Her hair
is brushed out of the 'kinks" a-id
snarls of the day and braided loose
ly. She wears a very loose night
dress. Slia cultivates an easy con
science, as a foe to insomnia, and
she banishes thought as undesirable.
If her brain persists in working af
ter she has gone to bed she does not
attempt to stop its labors by one
mighty act of her will, but she tries
to think in desultory, disconnected
fashion until she ceases to think at
all. So does sleep cease to be a
merely instinctive process and be
come one of the fine arts.
The greatest claims for S.S.S. (Swift's
Specific) are made by those whom it has
cured, and after all the most valuable
reputation is one which is given by those
who speak from experience. We could
publish a page of what we claim S.S.S.
will do, but the people prefer to read
of what it has done, and hence we give
the testimony of reputable, well-known
people in different parts of the country,
who gladly tell of how S.S.S. has cured
them of blood diseases, after trying
other treatment in vain.
No wonder S.S.S. has such staunch
friends. The experience of those who
take it to-day will be the same as of
those who twenty years ago found it the
only cure. Blood diseases are obstinate,
and cannot be cured by one medicine
in a dozen which claims to cure them;
so when S.S.S. is taken with satisfactory
results, after a disappointing experi
ence with other remedies, it is not
strange that it has grateful friends by
MR. WILLIAM SOWERS.
Mr. William Sowers, of Bradford Ohio,
was cured by S..S.S. ten years ago of a
severe blood poison, ana writes that to
this day no sign of the dreadful disease
has ever returned. He says:
"I bad a terrible blood disease which
is considered incurable, and was treated
for a long time by the best physicians,
but they did me no good. The disease
seemed to get a firmer bold on me, and
attacked my tongue and throat, which
were soon full of vile ulcers.
"I changed doctors several times, and
afterwards took nearly every blood rem
edy on the market, without the slightest
benefit. After five years of treatment
which did me no good whatever, I was
induced -to try S.S.S. This remedy
proved itself equal to the case, for in a
few months I was entirely cared and my
kin was perfectly clear and smooth.
I could hardly believe that the cure was
permanent, but ten years have elapsed
and no sign of the disease has yet ap
peared." S.S.S. is a sure cure for. Cancer, Ca
tarrh, Contagious Blood Foison, Scrof
ula, Rheumatism, Eczema, and all other
blood diseases, which other remedies
have no effect whatever upon. It is
pad is the only blood remedy which
is guaranteed to contain no mercury,
potash or other harmful mineral. S.S.S.
is sold by all druggists.
