The Most Eminent
Rev. Dr. Talmage Finds Help in the Use of Dr.
Greene's Nervura and His Commendation
of this Grand Remedy Will Influence and
Encourage the Weak, Sick and Suffering
to Use It and Be Cured.
RKV. T. DEW1TT TALMAGK.
Rev. T. DeWitt Talmage, undoubtcdly
the greatest living dlvinc, occupics in the
hearts and minds of tbe pcople a position
of pre-einlncnt cstcem and regard. No
other preacher is so witlely kuown, no
other clergyman is so distinguibhed
throughout the world. A great orator and
writer, his sennons have tbc widest dis
semination, until there is scarcely a family
where his name and works are not known.
When such a man, a rccognized leader
and teacher of tbe people, testifies by his
written tcstimonial that Dr. Greene's Ner
vura blood and nerve remedy has helped
him and tliat be recommends its use for
invigoration after over-work, to restore
tbe strength, energy, nerve force and
vitality of the system, when for any
reason they are lost, weakcncd or im
paired, tbose who are sick and suffering,
who are weak, nervous, witbout strengtli,
energyand ambition, who arc discouraged
and dlsheartened by repeated failures to be
cured, in fact all who have necd of a
strength-glving and health restoring med
icine, cau take renewed hope from tbe
words of this great preacher, that Dr.
Greene's Nervura is the one remedv
among all others to give thctn back tbe
nealtn anu strengtli tney liave lost.
Rev. Dr. Talmage says :
1400 Mass. Ave., Washington, D.C.
I commend Dr. Greene's Nervura blood
and nerve remedy for invigoration after
over-w ork. I have us.ed' the Nervura for
T. DeWitt Talmage.
Ilope of cure should not be lost while
Dr. Greene's Nervura remains untried;
no one should be discouraged or despair
of a cure who has not yet soiiRht in this
wonderful remedy relief froin the pain of
rheutuatism and neuralgia; restoration

suffercrs from nervous prostration and
female complaints it is the entrancc upon
a new cxistence of robust liappiness: in-

tbo ehort dava of winter tho planta in
tho latter will havo but little eun, and
tben it will bo too low down near tho
bonzon. For a fow planta tho windows
looking to tbe east may bo UBcd and
for ferns and Bimilir elmde lovinc
eorts, they are deBirable. Whilo the
nortbern windowa may bo used for
eome of tbat class of plants, it ia not a
In caso a buy window upon the eouth
eide of the living rcom can be obtained
for fl iwera, very good resulta can be
eccurcd. It ehould bo scparatcd from
tho room by glats doora tbat Can be
thrown opeu or closed at pleasure, but
in caee they are not to bo bad, much of
tbe labor of kceping tbe planta in good
condition can be saved, if curtains aro
provided, to bo used when eweepiug.
In addition to books for banglng bar.
ets and bracket atanda for pot planta, it
will bo wellto bavo a Bhelf, from ono to
two feet in width, according to tbe
dimensions of tho window, upon which
to arrango tbe emaller plante. Thia
ehould havo sido p eces ono to two
inchea high, and a ziuc lining. Tho
boitom could tben be coverid with
coarae gravtl or flno pebblee, and a
much bettor growth could bo aecured,
as the plants in small potB would then
be lees llkcly to dry out.
A Blmplo propagating bcd can be
vety easily arranged by eupplying tbo
neceesary tlenn sand and a lamp to fur
nish bottom heat, ULless heating pipea
run elunfi under tho shelf, when they
would only need to bo boxed in. In
caeo tbe lamp is used, it will bo neccs
eaty to provide eomo eort of shield to
prevent it from eetting flro totho wocd
en shelf. A ehallow galvanized iron
pan lllled with plaster suspended nbove
the lamp and closo to the bttlom of tho
ebclf, will answer tho purpose.
If an ordinnry window is to bo used,
it will bo well lo bavo a similar ehelf at
tho hlght of the window sill. If mado
two or thrco feet longer than tho win
dow is wide, it will hr.ld a considnrablo
number of plants. For the bay window
and tho common window as well, if tho
sizo of tbo room admita of it, a plant
etand with ehelvea in the formol ataira,
or with a fht top, can bo used to good
ndvantage lo dieplay tho larger pbnte.
By having it arranged with casters, if
tho i lants tbat requiro a high temperat
uro are kopt upon it, upon cold nights
it will be an easy mutter to roll it back
from tho window and thus keep tho
tender plants from becoming chil lod.
