THE PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER: HONOLULU, APRIL 4, 1896.
FILTERS. SOME ID 1 nu .SS53LSaSU ,. . l you What a fine attempt at a beautiful day it was yesterday! I longed for a walk before sitting down to my letters. Then I remembered the new book I must send to Dick's wife, and the long ing seconded by the errand gave suf ficient reason for the walk. When I came to the pretty house and peeped into the green corner of the veranda where Fanny usually sat. no Fanny was to be seen. Only little Marion, with her blocks. 'Where's mama?" I asked. 'Oh, mamtt'a dot a headache," the tiny maid repli ', not even stopping to look up at Aunt Sibyl. After the top most block had been successfully put in place, she volunteered: "Papa didn't div her a tis dis morn in' an' he didn't div her any dold dollars when she ast him, an' I dess dat divved her a headate." At this point Tatsu brought her mending to our corner and I made my way to Fanny's room. Poor girl! But I need not have spent a thought in wondering how to meet her, for she for she was fast asleep, just where she bad thrown herself across the bed. Sleep is a better comforter than John Kendrich Bangs, thought I, as I put the book on Fanny's table and stole away. In the afternoon the teacups were all et out, but the gusts of rain beat against the large window, the blinds rattled and everything was noisy, even my waiting tea table. No. not every thing, the bell and I kept quiet, as not -en a tinkle came in prelude to a call. Jus tthe time for letters, but the spirit iid not move. It was busy in its mem ory of Dick's troubled home. It was fill ed with a vision of family purses and the problems they bring. What a pity. for instance, that Dick, tne soul oi honor, should tie up his purse strings in a knot that Fanny could not untie! I was in no mood for letters, to be sure, but why not write to Dick? I found I could think with the point of my pencil, and this was what I thought: 'My Dear Dick: Isn't this devotion? And you saw your Aunt Sibyl only yes terday! I want your co-operation in a matter I can more easily write than tell, and I appeal to the judge in you. "It is a money matter, of course, but not charity this time. A woman I know is clever and charming, loves her hus hand and is an excellent housekeeper and homemaker. 1 happen to know tnat while her husband hat a good income, they could not afford their present style of living but for her careful managing. Vet she dreads asking him for money; he gives it out so grudgingly, even if he is silent. I believe she would go with out actual necessities rather than ask for herself. "He earns the money, forsooth, there fore it is his and his alone! Very well, hat does he pay her for keeping his home, nursing, him. dressing, training and teaching his child? He would like some mony as well as love if he did all this for her. To cap the climax, she put all her dower into tTieir house, which otherwise would not have been theirs. Y t she must ask him for money to buy his food, or to clothe his w ife and child, at the risk of sometimes being refused! "She didn't tell me anything, of this. How I discovered it does not matter. What you can do to help me with your legal acumen is more to the point. Now. i what would you advise. Might she ask i ber husband for a separate allowance for her own needs? Or would yon have a common treasury from which each could draw? Or would you put all the money you earn in the bank in Fanny's j name, asking her for it whenever yon needed any. just as she has had to come to you all these "Why. Dick, what am I writing? I did not mean tr tell you so soon. Did you know I meant Fanny? Did you know that Fanny cried herself to sleep this morning because you were surly when she reminded you of Maria's bilP Was it your little Marian who 'dessed dat dived her a headate?' 'Dick, my dear boy, I'm ashamed for you. Tf you love Fanny vou must trust her in everything money included. Now you have my diagnosis, you may listen to my prescription. 'Confide in Fan. Make a system of yuv spending. Strike an average for a month's income: put in the bank something for Marian's education and something for the rainy day. Leave something to give away. Then put the rest in Fanny's hands. She will make it go farther than you did. and then will be no more begging for money, no more frowns and no more heartaches. "I can do no better than tell you of John's way of having a family purse. I kept the accounts and he brought me the money as I needed it. Ask him to gjxe me money? Never! It was all ours. N not his. Your mother once saw him hand be a $5 bill when he saw my pock- ytbook was empty. As we were walking toward the car she said to me sadly: U 14 'In all his life rny husband never Weave me a cent more than I asked, and did not even ask!' That was the 2o!d way. Dick, but our way was better. the way I want you to follow. "Will vou? Or will you wreck your happiness by being selfish, callous and unjust. Fix the family purse strings in seme way so that Fanny can say she needs money as unconcernedly as she can announce the fashion of bishop sleeves. "But if there is not a change in your j administration of finances, my dear Dick, never show your face in my house or call me "Your loving aunt. "SIBYL STEWART." SICK HEADACHE. Women the Chief Sufferers. An Instance In WUfeli the Pi'obable Cause "Was spinal Trouble. (From the Advence, Ogdensburg, N. Y.) Every female who is nearing the crit ical period of a woman's life will be pleased to hear the story told by Mrs. Frank Murray, as follows: Mrs. Frank Murray, who resides near Ogdensburg, N. Y., says: "I am 46 years of age and for a number of years resided in Prescott. Ont. We moved over here some time ago and have worked this farm since. It is what is known as the Ferguson Farm, and is about six miles from the city. My hus band is now working in Ogdensburg at his trade, that of a stone mason, while my children and myself carry on the farm. "1 have been a great sufferer from sick headache, which would generally come on about evening, and he would be com pletely prostrated, not even able to lift my hand or help myself in any way. These spells would last for about twenty-four hours, and would leave me in so weakened a condition that for a few days I could scarcely drag about the house. Periodically the spells would come on me. I have also had consider able spinal trouble, the sharp, darting tcng.ues of pain being most severe, fol lowing my spine and to the back of my head. "Have doctored much, but withoet the desider result. I heard of Dr. Wil liams' Pink Pills for Pale People, and also later heard of the cures they had effected in a unmber of persons person ally known to me, and it was their pub lished stories that decided me to try them. "I got some of the pills, and after I had taken the first box 1 had no more headaches for several months. Last fall the headaches returned, however, and 1 took another box of the pills, and am happy to say have not since been both ered. This summer my head began to have a heavy feeling, and at times I was quite drowsy, but no pains accompanied it. I now have more pills, and though I have taken only a few, I feel well again. "I don't think any person could stand it a great while to be troubled as 1 was, and stand the amount of pain. I know that Pink Pills are a good medi cine and fully what they are repre sented to be. I have recommended them to some of my friends with beneficial results. Oh. my eyes! They have done wonders for me. I do all my own house work on the farm. We have a dairy of twelve cows, and often when the boys are very busy getting in the crops I have milked all the cows alone." The experience of years has proved that there is absolutely no disease due to a vitiated condition of the blood or shattered nerves that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills will not promptly cure, and those who are suffering from such troubles would avoid much misery and save money by promptly resorting to this treatment.

Nature has done much toward providing the people with necessaries: it has ais done a little toward securing for the people, luxuries In some localities a filter is a luxury, in others, Honolulu for instance, it is a necessity, but the natural filters that are sold have been much im proved by ingenuity of man. Charcoal is admitted to be the most thorough purifying agent known, consequently Messrs.Slack & Brownlow se lected it for use in the manu facture of their filters. And we are the agents for this particular brand of filter in Honolulu, asufficient guaran tee, by the way, of the character of the article. The latest invoices show three different, styles of the S. & B. Filters and these we have in stock, just opened them, in fact, and we want your attention. No 1, (we will call it N. 1) is fitted with a movable plate, so that when neces sary, the carbon may be taken out and washed. It has als a movable lining allow ing access to every part of the interior, which may be kept perfectly sweet and clean. No. 2 and $ are provided with the same conveniences for cleaning as the other, but they have the important ad dition that every part, in cluding the pure water chamber, is accessable, giv ing them all the requirements of a "Perfect Filter." The price of the S. & B. filter is below the others. You should have one, be cause it is a necessity. PACIFIC HARDWARE CO. Your Honey The odd cents is what counts.
