cure of such abnormal conditions. It is a must

regulator aad nerve strengthencr.
The "Golden Medical Discovery" is not a patent medicine cr secret nostrum,
full list of its ingredients being printed on its bottle-wrapper nnd attested

why tea cannot become a com

the fact that help is needed to

Horses' Sense of Smell
The horse has a wonderful
sense of amell. No matter how
hungry he may be he w'll leave
musty liay ' untouched m his
manger; and though thirsty will
reject water that is objectionable
to his sense of smell, lie will
likewise refuse to drink out of a
bucket which, may have some
offensive odor to it.

his eyesNand swallow a mouthful

lied by either site or whinny that
her colt is really her own until
she has a certilied'nasal proof of
the fact.
Blind horses have been known
to show signs of auger when
stranger approached them, which
shows that they have good sense
of smell. Blind horses, as a

Dog Waits at Prison Door
York, Pa. After a vain effort
to save its master ana mistress
from prison, a big black dog
owned by Mr. and Mrs. Amos
Paul of this city, cannot be in
duced to leave the vicinity of the
jail where they are confined.
Detective Fickes, who went to
arrest the pair for disturbing the
peace, was savagely attacked by
the animal as he attempted to
lead his prisoners away.
When the dog had been quiet
ed it followed at the heels of the
Pauls to the county jail, and
when the barred doors closed
uoon them sat down to await
their reappearance.
Home Eggs Best for Hatching
Farmers too generality save
eggs from the entire liock for
liatching. This is fatal to the
best results. The best layers,
those commencing early and
kyeping it up while -eggs are
highest, begin in spring to take
a much needed rest. About the
time when the hatching season
begins, the hens that have not
laid an egg all winter begin busi
ness, and by using their eggs for
"hatching, the resulting chick-ens
are from the poorest instead of
the bestlayera. Missouri Dairy -
