And then the first half by re alizing its work, finds amuse ment, recreation and food for ' thought. And thus we all are entertained and find life rob ed of its gloomy aspect. Then, I taking this view of it, the "sen fiofmTinl" ia tint nlnrnva fn r condemned.

Gay Building, St. Louis, Mo, writes: "I have used your Salvation Oil several times and find it unequaled aaa pain destroyer; I was troubled , with pains my legs and tried several remedies which did me no good. I then used Salvation Oil and the results were good." . The best way to stop the pain from a bnrn or scald when the skin has been taken off is to break an egg over the wound. The suf fering arises largely from the exposure to the air, and the white of the egg forms an artificial skin or covering, which for a time, eff eotnally prevents contact with the air, and so lessens the irritation of the nerves. Farmers who harried forward young hogs that had barely enough fat to grease a pair of boots last summer, now have ample op portnnity of repenting their haste.

It is reported that Rudy Erharly formerly of Defiance, is financially embarrassed in Chicago.
