" 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
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.

cine for women, sold by druggists, under a

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
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
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

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.

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

An analysis of Dr. Prick's Cream Bakin« Powder made by me shows
that it is composed oi the best materials, free from Ammonia, Lime,

Running Sore* Covered His Itody and
Head. Bones Affected. Cured
by Cutlrura Remedies.
When six months old the left hand of our
little grandchild began to swell, and had every
appearance of a large boil. 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

get up if he fell down, and could not move
when in bed, having no use of his hands. I im

healed, a bony matter forming in each one of
these five deep ones just before healing, which
would finally grow loose and were token ou
