KISSED ANOTHER MAN'S WIFE. " You scoundrel," yelled young Jacob Green At his good neighbor Brown,— " You kissed my wife upon the street,— I ought to knock you down." " That's where you're wrong," good Brown replied, In accents mild and meek ; ** 1 kissed her; that I've not denied But I kissed her on the check— and I did so because she looked so handsome— the very picture of beauty and health. What is the secret of it? " " Well," replied Green, " since you ask it, I will tell you; she uses Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription. I accept your apology. Good night." An unhealthy woman is rarely, if ever, beau tiful. The peculiar diseases to which so many of the sex are subject, are prolific causes of pale, sallow faces, blotched with unsightly pimples, dull, lustreless eyes and emaciated forms. Women so afflicted, can be perma nently cured by using Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription; and with the restoration of health comes that beauty which, combined with good qualities of head and heart, makes women angels of loveliness. " Favorite Prescription " is the only medi cine for women, sold by druggists, under a positive guarantee from the manufactur ers, that it will give satisfaction in every case, or money will be refunded. It is a positive specific for leucorrhea. painful menstruation, unnatural suppressions, prolapsus, or falling of the womb, weak back, anteversion, retro version, bearing-down sensations, chronic congestion, inflammation and ulceration of the womb.

Ways In Which Salt Can Bo Utilized. The Ideal Sanitary House—How to Cool Water Without Ice—Edmund Rus sell on Dress—A Bedroom Fire. A glance through some of the commence ment programmes of Vassar college and Mount Holyoke seminary of twenty years ago is both amusing and significant. In half a score the essays ran upon such topics as "The True Woman's Mission," "Dreams," "Ideals," "The True Home," "Patriotism," "Lessons from the Stars" and others of like sentimental nature. But bless the dear practical soul of the young woman of today! What has she to tell the world when she stands in her white gown on the graduation platform? Head the papers and you will see that she is interested in such topics as these, which were offered at an uptown school a night or two ago: "The Business Woman," a pica for a fuller busi ness education for women; "The National Flower," "The Advantages of Novel Bead ing," "The Giant's Shoulders," which was a thoughtful consideration of the practical reforms of the present day. The sentimental young woman, charm ing and sweet as she was, has given way to a creature no less charming and sweet be cause instead of having her eyes turned al ways up to the stars she has them coolly but helpfully fixed upon the affairs of men and nations, and none tho less graceful and pleasing because in place of having a mind that yearns toward "The True Woman's Mission" she has definite and decided opinions upon the business rights of wo men, or the possibilities of what in Boston is called "Christian Socialism."—New York Evening Sun. Many Ways In Which to Utilize Salt. If the feet are tired or painful after long standing great relief can, be had by bathing them in salt water. A handful of salt to a gallon of water is the right proportion. Have the water as hot as can be comfort ably borne. Immerse the feet and throw the water over the legs as far as the knees with the hands. When the water becomes too cool rub briskly with a flesh towel. This method, if used night and morning, will cure neuralgia of the feet. Carpets may be greatly brightened by first sweep ing thoroughly and then going over them with a clean cloth and clear salt and water. Use a cupful of coarse salt to a large basin of water. Salt as a tooth powder is better than al most anything that can be bought. It keeps the teeth brilliantly white and the gums hard and rosy. If after having a tooth pulled the mouth is filled with salt and water it will allay the danger of hav ing a hemorrhage. To clean willow furni ture use salt and water. Apply with a nail brush, scrub well and dry thoroughly. When broiling steak throw a little salt on the coals and the blaze from the dripping fat will not annoy. Damp salt will re move the discoloration of cups aud saucers caused by tea and careless washing. Brass work can be kept beautifully bright by oc c;vsionally rubbing with salt and vinegar. Wash the mica cf the stove doors with salt and vinegar. Salt in whitewash will make it stick better.—Hall's Journal of Health. The Ideal Sanitary House. The picture of the ideal sanitary house is a pleasing one. The house will stand facing the sun, on a dry soil, in a wide, clean, amply sewered, substantially paved street, over a deep, thoroughly ventilated and lighted cellar. The floor of the cellar will be cemented, the walls and ceiling plastered and thickly whitewashed with lime every year, that the house may no; act as a chimney to draw into its cham bers micro-organisms from the earth. Doors and windows will be generous in size, so as to admit of plenty of air. The outside walls, if of wood or brick, will bo kept thickly painted, not to shut out the air, but for the sake of dryness. The inside walls will be plastered smooth, painted and varnished. Interior wood work, including floors, will be var nished. Movable rugs, which can be shak en daily in the open air—not at the doors or out of the windows—will cover the floors. White linen shades, which must be clean or they become unsightly, will protect the windows. The furniture will be plain, without upholstery. Mattresses will be covered with oiled silk; blankets, sheets and spreads—no comforts or quilts —will constitute the bedding. There will be as little plumbing as possible, aud what there is will be exposed. The hot air fur nace which heats the rooms will take its supply from above the top of the house in stead of the cellar, and, we are told, the "spring" cleaning will be twice a year.— New York Commercial Advertiser. To Have Cool Water Without lee. There is no reason why there should not be a thousand crude water jugs to every expensive one. Tho main outlay need be only a few cents, the rest a liberal expenditure of gumption applied to hea then principles. The people of Japan de pend for their drinking water upon their thousands of good wells. The dwellers in the cities, when possessed of unlimited means, have porcelain filters and water coolers, through which they obtain pure, fresh water of a not unpleasant tempera ture. For the poorer classes Japan fur nishes a filter which costs about six or seven cents. It is a bracket like arrange ment containing sand and is most effica cious in cleansing the water of the dust which settles on Japan in clouds. Early in the morning, before the sun is Up, the Japanese go out and draw water for use during the day. This is filtered through the seven cent sand filter or through a twenty-five cent charcoal ma chine and then stowed away, closely cov ered in wooden pails or pottery jars, in the coolest place that can be fcund.—New York World. Edmund Russell on Dress. "In dress," said Mr. Russell in a lecture, : "the development of personality is the true basis of the best expression. The grace of ' a costume depends mainly upon the proper j poise of the wearer. The most artistic gown loses its effect when worn by a wo man with a sunken chest, curving back ! and projecting elbows. Repose, dignity . and grace of presence come only with the realization of Delsarte's idea of control in ■ the torso and freedom at the extremities. \ The becomingness of a gown lies in its re- I lation of color and form to the wearer. ; There is a relation, both by correspondence Sod contrast. Black, by contrast, gives an ! added whiteness to the complexion, but by correspondence it deepens every line on the face and increases the impress of age. Three classes of color are always harmo nious—for the street, shades on the tone of tha hair; for the house, the tone of the eyes; for the evening, the tint of the com plexion. The dress should always be sub- The Best Way to Mourn. A pretty young woman sat in a seat of a railway car all alone. Her eyes were tear swollen and red, and her whole appearance Indicated that she was in some grave sor row. Her bags and wraps and umbrella, all her traveling impedimenta, were tum bled about her In the most uncared for and I haphazard way. Her whole being wascon- I centrated in being just as wretched aa she buaoci.oßc. A few stations farther on a I young man came'into the car and jolneu het. Evidently he was her brother. His [ quiet face showed that he, too, had a share in her grief. As soon as she saw him she broke into sobs, and would have thrown ! herself into his arms. But he set her gen : tly aside. "Wait a minute, Nettie," he said, i "till I fix you up a bit." ' Then he picked up her bags and stowed them under the seats, and put her boxes and umbrella in the rack, aud folded up her wraps neatly. After that he took off his own high hat and put on his traveling! cap, hung up his top coat, stowed his own luggage safely away, she watching him all the while with an air of indignant protest that he could care for those petty thi lgs at such a time. And when at last every thing was shipshape and tidy he sat down beside her and said kindly: "Now, dear, you can cry all you like, and be comforta ble about it, too." And she did cry a little. But somehow things didn't look half so bad as they did before Tom came, and in an hour's time ; she was as composed as any other woman in the car. Yet how indignant she would have been if any one had hinted that her misery had anything to do with bags and boxes and bundles I—New York Evening Sun. The Story of Two Novels. Two friends of mine spent each of them the best part ef the year 1888 in writing and revising a novel apiece. Both stories were published by leading houses dur ing tlie early part of 1889. They were well advertised, skillfully handled, and both novels are, according to the popular acceptance of the term, successful—that is, they have been widely written about, paragraphed in the press from one end of the country to another, English editions have been printed of each, and to every literary person the names of both novels and authors are thoroughly familiar. Now, what have the authors received in hard cash for their year's work? I will tell you exactly: Of one, 1,700 copies were sold; no royalty was paid on the first thousand to cover manufacture, etc., and upon the re maining 700 copies the author received the regular 10 per cent, royalty. The book sold for $1. The net revenue to the author was therefore $70. His type writer's bill was $81.50. Net profit, $8.50, and the book has stopped setang. The other author was a trifle more fortunate in that his novel reached a sale of 2,000, all but five copies. Like the first he received a 10 per cent, royalty only after the first thousand copies. Unfortunately, he bought so many copies of his books for friends that, when his publisher's statement came, it showed acredit in his favor of just $39.50. Had he type written his manuscript, the novel would have thrown him into debt! And these are but two of a score of in stances within my knowledge that I could cite.—Edward W. Bok in Ladies' Home Journal. . Clean Beds iv the Sick Room. In all cases attended with fever and in creased heat of the system a mattress is preferable to down or feather beds, and neither in health nor sickness should such beds be used of a too soft or yielding na ture. A lied moderately elastic, but which does not yield to the body so as to become hollow and depressed, is the best. Smooth cotton sheets are at all times preferable to linen, and they should be frequently changed. In febrile diseases, and in hot weather especially, two beds are highly grateful to the patient, one being cooled and aired while the other is occupied. These beds may be either in tho same or adjoioiug rooms; a sofa may suit very well for one of the temporary changes. Where the patient is confined to one bed an agree able way of airing it is occasionally to lift up tho bed clothes by grasping them i n the middle, raising them gently, so that the air may enter at the sides without un covering the patient, and then letting them down and forcing out all the heated air. This process may be once or twice repeat ed. —New York Ledger. Teast for House Plants. "Tell mc, please, what spell you cast about your plants thut thoy flourish so vig orously?" I askud a lady friend as I exam ined the lovely blooms which seemed to have fairly captured the big bay window. One miniature tree of heliotrope flooded the room with its sweet perfume. "Now, this plant," she said, "is considered by some extremely fragile, but it in reality only re quires plenty of sun aud water to grow most luxuriantly. They are thirsty things and are too often allowed to die for want of sufficient moisture. An English recipe has, however, furnished me with the secret by which I may enjoy all tho season through a succession of lovely blossoms. Delicate plants I water occasionally with yeast. This seems to strengthen them in a wonderful manner. Then I have found that seeds which absolutely refuse to sprout in the ground may be coaxed into a vigor ous existence by giving them a bath of camphor and water, putting them in the sun and letting them remain until they • burst, when they are placed in the earth." —Philadelphia Inquirer. Woman and Her Parasol. During the warm months, when they carry sunshades, women have a special way of being reckless. They will" plunge right into the midst of a crowded street, holding their parasols close over their heads, seeming wholly to forget how it shuts off their view and endangers the safety of their transit. One day on Broad way, but for the timely interference of a man who was crossing, a woman would have been trampled under the feet of a cart horse, simply because she : was trying to get across with her parasol tilted carelessly over her shoulder at an i angle that entirely shut off her upper view iof the street. Aud because she could not see it she seemed as serenely unconscious as an ostrich that all the street there was not immediately to the front and left of her. Even at tho risk of getting a little heated in crossing the street in the glare of the sun it would be wise for every woman to close her parasol when she comes to a place where she must risk her life.—New ; York Evsning Sun. A lady asks how to make coffee jelly, i The following recipe is said to be excellent: ' Soak one-half box of gelatine in one-half j cupful of cold water. Make a quart of j strong, clear coffee and strain it. Sweeten j to taste with white sugar, making it a lit '■■ tie sweeter than would be desired if the ! coffee were to drink. Set it on the fire until it is boiling hot, then pour it at once jon the gelatine. Put into wet molds to j Btiffen; then turn out. This is nice served | with ice cream or with cream alone.—Bos ; ton Herald. Muslin should be washed in a lather of cold water. Never put it into warm water, even to rinse it. If the muslin should be green add a wineglass of vinegar to the i water in which it is rinsed; if lilac, the I same quantity of ammonia. . For black \ and white muslins use a small allowance I of sugar of lead. | The will of Maria M. Honsington, filed in tho probate office, Springfield, Mass., be- I (jjueaths $1,000 to the American board, j $1,000 to the New West Educational com | mission, $500 to the Woman's board, $500 to i the American Missionary association and $500 to the Missionary society.

We poulticed it, but all to DO purpose. About five months after it became a running sore, .soon other sores formed. He then had two of them on each §hand, and as his blood be came more ami more impure il took less time for them to break out. A sore came on the Chin, beneath the under lip, which was very otfensive. His head was one solid scab, discharging a great deal. This was his condition at twenty-two months old, when I undertook the care of him, his mother having died when he was a little more than a year old, of consumption (scrofula of course . He could walk a little, but could not get up if he fell down, and could not move when in bed, having no use of his hands.
