It banishes the indispositions that precede maternity and makes baby's advent easy and almost pain less. It insures the little new-comer's health and an araple supply of nourish ment. It transforms weak, nervous inva lid into strong:, healthy, nerve-steady wo men. Thousands have testified to its mar velous merits. An honest dealer will not efier a substitute. "My wife was troubled with 'female weak ness' for several years," writes James Caswell, Baq., of Ocheltre. Johnson Co., Kjm., (P. O. Box 6i). ' She had reariiig--down pains and pain in back. Her periods were irregular, slle would have falntinjr spells, the best doctors did her bo rood. By th time my wife had taken four bottles of the ' Favorite Prescription ' she was completely cured. No more pain. Her monthly periods are reg-ular, she is stout and strong. When she commenced taking your medicines she weighed about 125 pounds now Abe weighs 160 pounds."

There was in those days a seriouis mannered Irish member named Blake (not to be . confounded with the ex premier of Canada, sitting member for Boutb. Longford), who is remembered fcr a brief correspondence he read to the delighted house. It was intro duced into a speech delivered in debate on the Irish Sunday closing bill. Mr. Blake had, he confidently informed the house, an uncle who regularly took six tumblers of whisky toddy daily. This troubled him, says the North American iJeview, and after much thought he resolved to write and remonstrate with his relative. ' The following was the letter: "My Dear Uncle: I write to say how Jleuscd I should bo if you could see your way to giving-up your six glasses of whisky. a day. I nn sure you would find many advantages in doing bo, the greatest of which vould bo thatv as I am persuaded, it wo-ild be the means of prolonging your days." The uncle replied: "My Dear Nephew: I am much Obliged to you for your dutiful letter. I was so- much struck . by what you said, and in particular by your kind wish to lengthen my days, that last Fri day I gave up tho whisky. I believe you are right, my boy, as to the days being lengthened, for, bedad! it was the longest day I ever remember." The Xjanff-naffe f the Fatnre.

CAPE COD SANDSTORMS. I Efforts to Plant Grass and Stop the Drifts. A sandstorm on Cape Cod, back of Provincetiown, is something- more to bo dreaded than a western blizzard. When the wind blows in a gale from the north east the soft light sand drifts in im mense clouds, completely obsowing- all objects around farther than, ten feet away. It is worse than snow in many respects, it not only covers up the road or trail in a short time, but it changes the general features of the landscape permanently. People get lost in the sandstorms, and often, when the storra subsides, the landscape is so altered that they are bewildered and puzzled in try ing to locate their homes. The sand may not be as freezing cold as the snow, but it is fair more injurloua. It cuts and grinds the face 83 Jt strikes it, and per forms about the same operation as a sandblast. Men who have been lost put in the furious sandstorms, and mem bers of the llve-aing patrol, have re turned home at nlg-hb with their faces lacerated and discolored so that they resembled raw beef. Even the glass windows of the houses are so ground by the flying and that they have to be re placed ofboa by hew ones. After one heavy storm it is almost impossible to see through the glass. People now shut the blinds of the houses facing the wind during sandstorms in oruer to save the glass. No man can face the sand clouds and. endure the pain, for long. As the prevailng sea winds are from the northeast on the cape, tlhe sand duties are drifting steadily and per sistently toward Provincetown. Many years ego it was made compuJsory by law for the citizens of Cape Cod to turn out every Bpring and plant marram grass to shut out the sea, and Province town owes its existence to-day to wise laws which empowered a "beach grass comnkittee" to enter any man's inclosed garden or field and plant marram grass, if the sand was uncovered or movable. The purpose of the harbor and land commissionors now is to make the work of laying the sands permanent and en durable. The tract of land comprises between. 3,000 and 4,000 acres on the ex treme northerly point of the cape and it was purchased by the colony of New Plymouth, from the Indians in 1692. The land faces the Atlantic ocean on one side, and stretches back to a belt of woods, which the early inhabitants of Province town planted to protect their town and harbor from the sandstorms. EocentUy, however, the sand belt has been steadily encroaching upon the wooded tract, and it is to prevent the destruction of work already accom plished that the commissioners have set out to roclaimthe sandy beach from the sea and wind. Since 1894 appropriations aggregat ing $10,000 have been spent by the com missioners in experiments on the sand restraining qualities of various plants and trees, and about 50 acres of sand have been reclaimed by being covered with beach grass and vegetation. If the enterprise proves successful and nobody doubts in the least that it will some 3,000 acres of worthless sand will be converted into excellent build ing sites. , The popularity of Cape Cod for a summer resort is growing and ex tending every yeaT, and it has been nothing but the sandstorms and insta bility of tho land that has kept this re gion from being built up with summer cottages and cttl omenta. bcieutihc American. NEW ZEALAND DOGS. Reoiarlcnble Itatellltreirce Ihoira by tno Animal. New Zealand is a country that dellea largely upon the labor of dogs as op posed to the toil of men, says the New York Mail and Express. A man with several dogs,' trained one and all to a proper pitch, can cope with the duties of a large number of men without dogs in any work that is purely pastoral. Last year sbjeep dogs were an tmpor- tantfactorin the care of 18,000,000 sheep, which produced 80,000,000 pounds of wool. The dogs are almost as great a sight as the sheep on the four annual events of mustering, named respective ly shearing muster (November), strag glers' muster (February), weaning muster (March), autumn muster (May). The muster of every sheep on the run is imperative, and those are rare excep tions where less than four musters are deemed sufficient. A muster is arranged on recognized lines. As nearly as pos sible the men work in line, within sight of each other. The top man drives the sheep gradually down to the man below him, who passes them on till they reach the man working the flats. Ihere Is no precise rule, as eaoh mac can keep his mob of sheep till the beat is mustered. All this time the dogs have been work ing in every course on the beat, not en masse,but each in his own sphere, as the shepherd commands. Should he have half a dozen dogs they would comprise two "heading" or "leading" doge,-two "drivin?" or "huntavyays" and two "handy" dogs. The 'iandy" dog is a dog able to turn its attention with equal exactness to anything. There is little erring; once his education is ac complished his owner can depend upon him in any crisis. Tho dogs used in this colony on sheep farms are selected from Scots and German collies and the Smith-field sheep dog. and vary as much in size and class as they do in price. A do"- fitted for the capabilities of a small farm could bepurchased for a sovereign, while men who are in residence on back country stations of 200,000 acres re peatedly pay from 10 to 15 for their fancy.

Pretty Drees ot Llarh Woolen Cab rloa. 1 When thie first suggestion of autumn is in tlheiair, and while it is yet too warm to do much more wi th. wraps than- mere ly carry them about, the stylish woman gets a great deal of satisfaction out of pretty dresses made of the lighter woolen fabrics and her autumn harts made of chip or straw in the same color as her costume. Very elaborate dresses made of crepe de chine with ruohings and ruffles, puffs, insertions and edg ings are shown in the newest invoices and BTe sometimes seen a dressy out- of-door entertainments. There Is a mania for white and the old-time swiss muslin or organdie made up over white or color in a favorite cfress. Very light gray, blue, green or pink crepe de chine with white silk lining is a momentary fancy. A specially sitylish costume is of lemon yellow over white satin and with trimming of white lace. It is a curious fact that some colors are eo much more dressy than olthers, and she is the artistic woman who dSscrimi- iraites and makes her colors and combi nations fit the times and seasons when they are worn. A dress of large figured India silk is made up with skirt perfectly plain and with sleeves full at the shoulders and fittiing the arms below. The neck is cu't out in shield shape and filled ia with folds and ruchings of organdie aaid lace. Another pretty dress is made of embroidered muslin. It has Hhree bands of widie trimming ond bertween these narrow lines of embroidery. Tho waist is plain at the sides and back. while the front is elaborately wrought with vest, shoulder straps and wide bands of embroidery set in at the shoul der seams and outlining- the vest on either side. A girdle belt! is of velveit, and over this and far down on the skirt these side bands of embroidiery extend, making a preMy and effective trim ming; the sleeves are made of alternate rows of embroidery and plain material. Fine tucks are a faivorite decoration for these materials, organdies, veilings, in deed all light-weight wool, catiton or silk fabrics may be tucked in ailmost solid masses. A novelty is a skirt trimmed with tucked ruffles. These ruffles are set on so as to outline an over skirt design. The ruffles are about four inches wide and each one has three tucks above a namow hem. There are five of these ruffles, and as each one is about five yards in length, the amount of sewing accessary to produce them is by no means trifling. Never were thin goods, and laces in such enormous de mand. Entire dresses are made of lace Insertion and edging, and capes, weis.'s, blouses and draperies representing scores of yards of material are niot un common. N. Y. Ledger. NEWS FROM THE NORTH.

It is a singular fact, yet one substan tiated by statistics, that most crime is committed in this slate by men 29 years old. This is not only true of the lesser, ; but also of the greater crimes, although ' a man is presumed to be at that period , of his life not. only in zenith of his physical, but also in full and complete possession of his mental powers, with a complete appreciation of right and wrong and . their respective eonse-' quences. This condition is a problem which has not been solved by the stu dent of criminology, and one which is made the more complex by the . fact that the ages of 21, 27 and 45 years near ly equal it, with the intervening years showing a far less percentage of crime. It is indeed peculiar that the criminal tendency should be so strong at 29 with no such inclination, so far as criminal statistics show, in as great a degree for the succeeding 10 years, and then an other outburst of the animal in man. This condition is found to be true by actual figures, and as all statistical computations at which average condi tion are sought to be determined are ar rived at by this method, so may the student of this subject, ns well as the insurance magnate who bases his rates on the general average of losses in pro portion to the risks taken, and does so with full safety, employ it in solving the problem before him. Charles K.Baker, chief clerk to Super intendent Xiathrop, has made this sub ject one of close study and will soon have completed a table showing this to be true. He has already completed one relative to murderers servhng life sen tences in the penal institutions, and its figures bear out the general conclusion. He offers at this time no explanation for this, but hopes after he has ex hausted the subject, so far as the presentation of figures is concerned, to be able to set forth reasons why these years should be productive of the most crime. . The following figures show how old the various murderers who are serving life sentences were when they commit ted the net for which they are serving time, together with how many like crimes were committed at such specific year of age: Fifteen, 1; sixteen, 1; ?eventeen, 2; eighteen, 2; nineteen, 1; twenty, 2; twenty-one, ; twenty-two, 1; twenty-three, 0; twenty-four, 5; twenty-five, 8; twenty-six, 10; twenty even, 11; twenty- ight, 7; twenty-nine, 12; thirty, 5; thirty-one, 6; thirty-two, 7; thirty-three, 6; thirty-four, 6; thirty rive, 7; thirty-six, 6; thirty-seven, 3; thirty-eight, 5; thirty-nine, 4; forty, 5; forty-one, 3; forty-two, 3; forty-three, 6; forty-four, 3; forty-five, 7; forty aix, 1; forty-seven, J; forty-eight, 3; forty -nine, 2; fifty, 1; fifty-one, 0; fifty two, 2; fifty-three, 2; fif ty-f our, 0 ; fifty five, 2; fifty-Six, 0; flty-seven, 1; fifty eight, 0; fifty-nine, 1; sixty, 0; sixty one, 1; sixty-two, 0; sixty-three, 1; sixty-four, 1; sixty-five, 0; sirty-six, 0; sixty-seven, 1; slxtyeight, 1; sixty- WATERBDRY FURMTURE CO, 135 TO 169 EAST MAIN ST.
