Something That Will Do You Good.
We know of no way in which we can

we consider one of the very best reme
dies on the market for coughs, colds,
and that alarming complaint, croup.
We refer to Chamberlain's Cough

it has become^ a household necessity.
By its prompt use we haven't any doubt
but that it has time and again prevent

Ingersoll's Eulogy on Whisky.
I send yon some of the most
wonderful whisky that ever drove
the skeleton from the feast of
painted landscapes in the brain of
man. It is the mingled souls of
wheat and corn. In it you will
find the sunshine and shadows that
chased each other over billowy
fields, the breath of June, the carol
of the lark, and dew of the night,
the wealth of summer and au
tumn's rich content, all golden
with imprisoned lisjht. Drink it
and you will hear the voice of men
and maidens singing the 'Harvest
Home,' mingled with the laughter
of children. Drink it and you will
feel within your blood the starred
dawns, the dreamy, tawny dusks
of perfect days. For forty years
this liquid joy has been within
staves of oak, longing to touch the
lips of man."
DR. BUCKLEY'S REPLY.
I send you some of the most
wonderful whisky that ever
brought a -keleton into the closet,
or painted scenes of lust and blood
shed in the brain of men. It is
the ghost of wheat and corn, crazed
by the loss of their bodies. In it
you will find a transient sunshine
chased by a shadow as cold as the
arctic midnight in which the
breath of June grows icy, and the
carol of the lark gives place to the
foreboding cry of the raven.
Drink it and you shall have woe,
sorrow, babbling* and wounds
without cause your eyes shall be
hold strange women, and your
heart shall utter perverse things.
Drink it deep, and you shall hear
the voices of demons shrieking,
women wailing, and wdrse than
orphaned children mourning the
loss of a father who yet lives.
Drink it deep and long, and ser
pents will hiss in your ears, coil
themselves about your neck, and
seize you with, their fangs for 'at
last it biteth like a serpent and
stingeth like an adder.' For forty
years this liquid death has been
within staves of oak, harmless
there as pure water. I send it to
you that you may 'put an enemy
in your mouth to steal away your
brains.' And yet I call myself
your friend."

For some time past I have want
ed to insert a card* of thanks in
this column for the words of ap
preciation and encouragement I
have received from many of the

often seemed to me that I could
not give the time to the work in
addition to my State work and
home cares, and I have thought at
times I would have to drop it, but
each time some kind letter or word
either spoken or sent to me by my
husband or some kind friend has
helped me to try again. I wish to
thank all for their words and let
ters of kindness and also those who
have sent me clippings or items of
news which are so helpful. I shall
always be pleased to receive items
of interest on the subject of tem
perance. Truly, the saloon is the
greatest enemy of the home and
we should all be united in raising
the banner of temperance high.

HER FACE HER FORTUNE.
Why Faying' One Girl Got a Good
and Ejtsy Position.
She was a sweet looking girl, with as
fair a pink and white complexion as
woman ever desired, and was chatting
with one of her ow* sex on a Staten
Island ferryboat, while I was seated
so near that I could not help hearing.
Several times my truant eyes deserted
my paper and stole a glance at the
face that was so attractive.
"It was the luckiest thing that ever
happened to me," she said to her com
panion, "when I went into that Fifth
avenue store just to buy a comb. How
little I thought that I would be work
ing there at greater wages than I had
ever hoped to earn! I hesitated about
going in, because I feared the prices
would be too high, but I did go in and
came out with a comb without paying
a cent for it. And, better than all, I
had been engaged to begin the next
Monday as a saleswoman.
"I was nearly discouraged before
that, for I was getting only $4 a week,
and we were awfully pinched at home,
but my luck changed on that day, and
it was Friday too. Fortunately for me,
the store was crowded when I went in,
and the proprietor left his desk that
stands in a little railed off corner and
came to wait on me. I noticed that he
looked very sharply at me, but not at
all in an impudent manner.
'Pardon me, miss/ he said, 'but I
am looking for a young lady to -assist
me in the store h*re, and if your cir
cumstances are such that you would
care for the place I would like to have
you consider it.'
"I was wonderfully surprised, but
thanked him, saying that I knew noth
ing about the business.
"'That doesn't matter,' he replied.
'You' can soon learn it. To be frank, I
would like to have you on account of
your complexion. You know we sell
all sorts of goods for the complexion
and articles for beautifying, and your
face would do more to make sales than
all of the arguments and representa
tions that could be made.'
"Well, the result was that I got a
fine place, with easy work, at $15 a
week. My hours are short, and I sim
ply play the agreeable while selling
goods at an immense profit. I wouldn't
let any of the concoctions touch my
face for anything, but the customers
appear to be impressed by my com
plexion, and the proprietor is satisfied.
So am I."New York Herald.
POULTRY POINTERS.
A close, unventilated house is em
phatically a foul house.
Ground or crushed bone is a good
form in which to give lime.
The nests should be arranged so that
the fowls can walk in on them.
Bran is a better feed for fowls than
corn because it contains more nitrogen.
An excellent feed for young chicks is
cracked or coarsely ground wheat for
the first week.
A cock that fights and picks his
mates every time they are fed is not
a good .breeder, and few of his hens'
eggs will ever hatch.
Cane or sorghum seed can be fed to
fowls to good advantage. It stimu
lates egg production and in many ways
is good to use for variety.
For a good breeder select a rooster
with plump, full breast, broad across
the back, wide between the legs and
that crows often, loud and long.
It is a good plan to mate up the
fowls early, for occasionally one of the
hens will want to sit during the win
ter, and it will be best to have the eggs
ready.
Pier For Marriage Fee.
"A Lutheran minister in a western
Maryland town told me an amusing
story the other day," said a gentleman
to a reporter. "Some time ago as this
minister was walking along a street of
the town an old German advanced to
ward him with extended hand. The
minister shook hands, but remarked
that he could not recall his name. 'Oh,
yes,' said the old German, 'you remem
ber me! I am the man who gave you
a pig when you married me.'
"The minister smiled as he recalled
the incident, and as he was about to
ask about the wife the old German
said: 'Now I tell you what I'll do.
When you married me, I gave you a
pig, so I'll give you two pigs if you'
now unmarry me.' "Baltimore Sun.
Looking: Out For Papa.
A sweet little maid of four years was
distressed the other evening because
her father did not come home to dinner
on time. Her grownup sister said to
her:
"Papa is naughty, and when he
somes we won't give him any tea."
When he did come, the sister sent the
teapot out to the kitchen for fresh tea.
The baby looked on with a troubled
face and stole softly to her own room.
Shortly she returned with something
squeezed up in her tiny fist Going up
to her sister, she whispered:
"Annie, I'll give you all my pennies
if you'll give papa his tea."
And, opening her hand, she displayed
all her carefully hoarded pennies.

PbPPING THE QUESTION.
Carious Methods That Prevail I
Some Foreigm Countries.
In this favored land of the free every
lovelorn swain has his own way of
making love and pbpping the question,
but in some foreign countries the peas
antry has peculiar and traditionary
iways of performing those pleasing
functions. Aaong Hungarian gypsies
cakes are usid as love letters. Inside
the cakeUs a coin, which is baked in
it The cake is flung to the favored
object of one's affections. The reten
tion of the cake signifies acceptance,
but If-it is frdng back with force it sig
nifies rejection.
The Japanese lover wishing to make
known the state of his feelings throws
a bunch of pale plum flower buds into
his loved one's litter as she enters it to
go to a friend's wedding. If she tosses
the blossoms lightly out, the suitor
knows that he is rejected, but If she
fastens them to her girdle it is "Oh,
happiness!" with him.
In some parts of Spain the young
peasant looks unutterable things, but
never tries to speak until he has been
accepted. The girl neither looks nor
speaks, but she sees. Late in the cool
of the evening the youth knocks at
her father's door and asks for a gourd
of water. It is of course given to him.
Then comes the crisis. If he is invited
to take a chair within the porch or a
seat in the garden, he is an accepted
suitor, but if this civility is not ex
tended to him he goes away knowing
that he is rejected. If he is accepted,
there is a general celebration by the
family of the bride to be in honor of
her betrothal.
When the Eskimo goes a-wooing, he
walks to the house of his loved one's
parents and, seizing the object of his
affections by her long, strong hair or
her furs, carries her away to his hut
of snow or tent of skins. No matter
how much the girl may reciprocate her
suitor's affections, she always mak^s a
show" of resistance and tries to run
away from him, this for the sake of
preserving the conventionalities of Es
kimo society.
AN ANECDOTE OF WHITMAN.
How the Poet "Was Trying: to Cheer
Up a Friendless Boy.
One day I was stopped on Washing
ton street, says J. T. Trowbridge in
The Atlantic, by a friend who made
thfc- startling announcement: "Walt
Whitman is in town. I have just seen
him!" When I asked where, he replied:
"At the stereotype foundry, just around
the corner. Come along. I'll take you
to him." The author of "Leaves of
Grass" had loomed so large in my
imagination as to seem almost super
human, and I was filled with some
such feeling of wonder and astonish
ment as if I had been invited to meet
Socrates or King Solomon.
We found a large, gray haired and
gray bearded, plainly dressed man,
reading proof sheets at a desk in a lit
tle dingy office, with a lank, unwhole
some looking lad at his elbow listlessly
watching him. The man was Whit
man, and the proofs were those of his
new edition. There was a scarcity of
chairs, and Whitman, rising to receive
us, offered me his, but we all remained
standing except the sickly looking lad,
who kept his seat until Whitman turn
ed to him and said: "You'd better go
now. I'll see you this evening." After
he had gone out Whitman explained:
"He is a friendless boy I found at my
boarding place. I am trying to-
cheer
him up and strengthen him with my
magnetism," a practical but curiously
prosaic illustration of these powerful
lines in the early poems:
To any one dying thither I speed and
twist the knob of the door.
I seize the descending man
with resistless will.
I raise him
Every room of the house do I fill with an
armed force, lovers of one, bafflers
of graves.
Points About a Good Horse.
There are some points which are val
uable in horses of every description.
The head should be proportionately
large and well set on. The lower jaw
bones should be sufficiently far apart
to enable the head to form an angle
with the neck, which gives it free mo
tion and a graceful carriage and pre
vents it bearing too heavily on the
hand. The eye should be large, a little
prominent and the eyelid fine and thin.
The ear should be small and erect and
quick in motion. The lop ear indicates
dullness and stubbornness. When too
far back, there is a disposition to mis
chief.
A Carious Boat.
According to a Chinese legend, there
lived in Canton 200 years before Christ
an artist named Lim Kao Poung, who
won an immortal reputation owing to
the fact that he was able to fashion
out of a bean pod a boat, complete
With rudder, sails, mast and all other
necessary appurtenances. Moreover,
on the exterior of the boat were en
graved various maxims by Confucius.
For this masterpiece, it is said, the
Emperor Tsi Fou paid him 1,000 taels.

Origin of the Sabbath.
The Sabbath as a religious institu
tion is far older than the Pentateuchal
legislation. It, too, can be traced back
to a Babylonian prototype, not, how
ever, as a day of rest from labor, but
as a kind of atonement day, when by
various rites and by observing cer
tain restricted regulations the anger
of the gods could be appeased. On
this old- institution the Hebrews in
grafted their religious ideas and pro
duced the unique institution of a day,
observed as a respite from the week's
toil and which, from being an "inaus
picious" occasion, a dies irae, is viewed
as a "delight."Professor Jastrow in

primeval state, and that most horrible
of practices, head hunting, is still in
dulged in in spite of all efforts of vari
ous governments and missions as well
as philanthropic societies who have
come in contact with the people.
Just as the scalp lock on the belt oft
the young buck Indian was a token of
manhood, so the gory head impaled onj
a tall pole over the hut of the would be
young warrior, Papuan or Dayak, pro-j
claims to all the prowess of the youth,)
henceforth a man and eligible for the
council and the wooing of the maidens*
It is immaterial how the trophy be ob
tained, whether by ambuscade or in1
fair battle. Generally it is the former.!
The candidate for martial honors sim
ply waits his chance by night in some
neighboring village as craftily and pa
tiently as a leopard on the prowl, the
kris or a poisoned arrow does the work!
swiftly and silently, and the severed!'
head has ample time to cool before the!
deed is discovered and calls for retri
bution.
Thus an incessant vendetta and car
nage go on, and only by living in in-j
accessible forests and strongly stock-j
aded places is it possible at all for,
the tribes to save themselves from an
nihilation. Of the vast island conti
nent of New Guinea the western or
Dutch part is the worst looked after,
and it often happens that numerous
raiding parties in their great war ca
noes come swooping down the coast
before the northwest monsoon and!
carry death and desolation into the!
comparatively quiet British portion!
around the mighty Fly river, opposite
Torres strait By the time the news
is carried to Thursday island and the
gunboat starts away in pursuit it is
generally" too late, and the marauders'
have vanished.
The writer was present once at the
capture of a war party, and forty
eight heads were taken from the ca-1
noes. Hanging and deportation to pe-!
nal servitude seem to be but a slight
deterrent for the terror recurs almcstl
as regularly as a plague of locustsJ
These Papuans are a hardy, warlike1
people and expert bowmen, and they]
rely on their skill with this potent
weapon solely, using their clubs for!
the dispatch of wounded foes.
The Dayaks of Borneo and their
neighbors, on the other hand, are in'
favor of the "sumpitan" or biowpipe,1,
shooting little diminutive but very cun
ningly poisoned arrows. The "sumpi
tan" has often a spear head attached!
to the outer end, like a bayonet on a
musket.' For close fighting they relyj
on the dreaded "parang," a heavy, hoi-1
low ground broadsword about two feet!
long, with the handle often carved of,
ivory and ornamented with gold and!
pearls, the wooden scabbard covered1
with human skin and hair.
They count him a poor warrior who
cannot sever a head clean with one
blow delivered backhanded. Even in a]
mountainous part of the Malay penin-|
sula, north of Malacca, in the Bind
ings and Hegri Sembilan, there is to
this day a remnant tribe of head hunt-'
ers called the Sa-Ki.
