He will then closely examine the nut hods whiih have 1 resulted most successfully, and attempt jto extend their use. lie will pay p.ir- lumbermen may adopt wood distillation as a means of turning into useful products the tops, slabs, and other waste of saw mills, which are often at present a total loss. Destructive distillation consists In driving- out all tho liquid matters in t he wood and collecting and condensing them atterwnrds. lntetiso hat is employed, nid tho original form of the wood Is ichanged chemically into various liquids and puro carbon. The wood is closely placrd In a steel retort, with the doots tightly sealed, and fins are started in the furnaie beneath. In a lew hours distillation begin. Tin; liquids aio driven ltoni tin wood, un changed to vapors, and pass oif through 11 P'l'u !t lie top of the retort, which leads to a condenser or worm, immersed In water, where they aru condi used in the order of their gravity. Again restored to liouid lorm, tiny then pass through the rest ol the coil and l im into collecting tanks. The gas. the lighten of tho prod ucts, uses to the, lop of the coil and is piped off. The liquid pioducts aie redistilled In a secondary still into the various oils and by-products. Thus, the thin, amber-col-oied oil. which Is one of the products of the lirst distillation, Is changed In tho second still into wood spirit or turpen tine', a light oil, and a heavy oil, the residuum being tar. The process, which is the one carried on at several micccss lul plants, is only one of tho.-o which the Forest Servlco is to take up critically. The outiit for a plant with a capacity ot luu lords of wood every .Hi hours, which lis as small as can be piolltably handled, 'consists of a "battery,'' or two reloits holding live cords of wood each. These ictorts are set in briikwoik, about Ci.tn (bricks being required for a "battery. i Mition aro nocile-.l a . oil or tonele nsor of the products is vailable. If properly made, the tar should bring tlio average market price of plno tar, nnd the spirits soil for from 15 to 5 cents below tho market price of spirits of turpentine. If no tar Is matte-, and oil is produced, tho latter must be made into special prepara tions, such as wood ptescrvatives, paints, stains, disinfectants, or any ono of a dozen pioducts. Tho demand for wood creosote oil iu tho stnto In which it comes from tho still is limited. The application of wood distillation to tlio utilization of wastei material both from thu lumber mills and from tho cut-over coniferous foicsts of tho South Is beyond U'cstlnn. Any mill wasto which Is rich in resinous products i-au bo used, and the very best results aro obtained from the down timber and stumps in tho cut- material niitublo for distillation.

They Have I'ctr Ontnlile Interests, Care Nothing for Athletics, but Are I'oud of Music. (From tho Mexican Herald,) As tho Moors practically control Ihn commerce and education of Spain fcr over n hundred years, the Spaniards acquired to a great extent, the same ideas livid by them of the, education and tteatmuMt of wemcti. And they, in their turn, carried tlii tc ideas to Mexico. In fact, tho Mexi can women of the tipper classes were much freer under the Axtees than they wero tifterward under Spanish rule. And, until quite lately, this condition of affairs has prevailed In Mexico Mnce Its free dom from tho Spanish ctoun. Not so many yenrs ago when a Mexi can woman went shopping shn remained In her carriage In the street nnd sent her servant Into the storo to rail ono ot the clerks to wait upon her. lie came out nnd iccelveel her order:! nnd brought the goods to lu.r for examination. Tills pe culiar method of shopping was due to tho old Moorish Idea that a lady of good family should ho exclusive: nnd should shield herself from the giizo of the pub lic and In fact from everyone, except her own Immediate relative's and most Inti mate friends. This Idea has been dying hard for over a century nnd It is still far from being completely hurled In spnte parts of the republic. The Mexican woman is naturally a home lover. She has no rlubs to take her away from her home, nnel jhe has few outside ii. infests. Kvcti when she Is phllanthropl rally Inclined, which she very often Is her Ideas of ilfo t . tut tr, makn her plaeo her char'tabl i contributions In the h.mds of sister supi rloi'M of ernvents or di rectors of eharitnldij Institutions nnd works fcr use in the cause !u nrs ut Ileal t. The Mexican women of Ihe mtihlb nnd upppr clasMM have never been athletic, nt least since the Ppnrilsli conquest. This, of eiurse-, was due to (lit, secluded life they led. But the wciren o, the lower classes have ever been stout nnd muscular, for much work of a heavy kind Ins always been I heir lot. On account of he r quieter disposition If I not pie.bable that, for years at least, tho Mcican woman will take the Interest In nthletlrs that. Is now lillg shown ly per An'orifnr sisfr Atiother reason Is that the sympathy of tho Mexican people Is all agalnt her do. 1 tier so. Jn the Mexican schools the girl Is taught many things In the way or necdlcwoik, painting, e mbrolderleR. diav Iiir and de signing, and these later serve to fill In her pen "of ul, uneventful life after leavlntr sehe.ol. To this must be ndded music. For here, as In Spain nrd other T.a'in coun tries, most women of the middle and up per classes receive an excellent musical education. In their homes and in their own way the Mexican women are delightful enter tainers, and their knowledge if ir,m-ie aids not a little in their ente rfnlnlngs. The piano always forms a very import ant factor in the entertainment at a Mesl ean house. No matter how small the tratherfng of friends, there is always someone who can play well, and his or l-.er sendees arc requested, and always cheerfully trive'n, for a Mexican not only likes to help entertain his friends and his friends' friends, but he looks upon It ns his duty to do so. With the piano also goes slnglnp of thn popular souks of the lay. LIFK IS FOMF.TH1NO L1VINCJ. moiw: THAN Life is something moie than living Something more than gaining pelf, And the soul Is lost forever That is bound by Itself. r.aeh one has a sacred duty Living up to Hod's eomiualld; If you cannot see it clearly Ask for light to understand. Do not scorn a humble brother. Do not judge him without trial: Do not frown on those who curse you. Meet their curses with a smile. IV ye strong and self-reliant, Meet adversity with calm; And remember 'tis not manly To extend the beggar's palm. Look about you ns oti Journey O'er tho shifting sands of lite, For a chance to aid another Who has not strength for the Mrire. There Is but a brief existence Twlxt the cradlo and the grave.

Wbat Is Mora Beautiful than a Motatr'a Lave t " Who ran to holo mo whn I fell And would somit pretty story 111, Or kiss tho placa to malts It well, My mother." A rnotlipr's worries are many. She sometimes forgets her own bodily dis comforts because of her overpowering love for the child. Hho hee)tnes broken down, sleepless, nervous, irritable and feels tired from morning until night. Many mothera of experience can toll you that nt such a time they have been re lieved, benefited end strengthened and put into proper health by tnking ft pre scription which their tno'tliers hnd told them was the best woman's tonic and nervine tn be taken at such times. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription has en Joyed nn enviable reputation for over a third of a century. In all that time it has sold more largely in the United States than any other tonic for woman's needs, and to-day its sales aro greater than over. Dr. Pierce made up this prescription from native medicinal roots without the use of a particlo of alcohol and for Ihe single purpose of curing those diseases peculiar to women and when there Is a lack of womanly atrcngth to bear the burdens of maternal duty. How few women come to this critical time with adequate strength. The reason why so many women sink tinder the strain of motherhood is be cause they are unprepared. Is pre paration then required for mother hood? asks the young woman. And every experienced mother answers ic,,Sii i unhesitatingly advise ex pectant mothers to use Doctor Pierce's Favorite Prescription," writes Mrs. J. W. t4. Htephens, of Mtla, Va. The rea son for this advice is that Dr. Pierce's Favorita Prescription is the best pre parntivc for the maternal function. No matter how healthy and strong a woman may be, she cannot use "Favorite Pre scription " as a preparative for ma ternity without gain of health and comfort. But it is the women who nre not strong who best, appreciate the great Deuetits received irom the use ot "fa vorite Prescription." For one thing its use makes the baby's advent practically painless. It has in many cases reduced days of suffering to a brief few hours. it has cnangea the period ot anxiety and struggle into a time of ease and comfort. A DUTY WOMEN OWE THEMSELVES. "Good actions speak louder than words," so, too does the testimony of manv thousands of women during a third of a century speak louder than mere claims not backed by any such record of cures. Miss Kmma Petty, 1126 S. Olive Street, Indianapolis, Ind., Past Vice-President, Daughters of Pocahontas, Mlnneola Council, also Organist, South Baptist Church, Indianapolis, writes: "For sev eral years I suffered with leucorrhcea, which was a serious drain on my vitality, sapping my strength and causing severe headaches, beariuc-down pains and a general worn-out feeling, until I really had no desire to live. I had many medicines recommended to me and tried many, but did not get permanent relief until I took Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre scription. In two months I was much better and stronger, and in four months I was well. Hare had no more disagree ablo discharge, no more pain; so I have very reason to praise 'Favorite Pre What kind of a Daily Newspaper Do you want in Your Family ?

As an indication of the high esteem in which the medical profession are coming to regard the several ingredi ents of which Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre scription, for weak and ailing women is composed, we have room here to in sert only the following: Dr. John Fyfe, of Saugatuck, Conn., Editor of the Deportment of Therapeu tics in Thk Electric Hrvir.w says of Unicorn root (Helonias IHoica) one of the chief ingredients of Dr. Pisrce's Fa vorite Prescription: "A remedy which invariably acts as a uterine invigoratnr and always favors a condition which makes for normal activity of the entirs reproductive system, cannot fail to bi of great usefulness and of the utmost importance to the general praotitionct of medicine." " In Helonias we have a medicament which more fully answers the above purposes than any other drug with which I am acquainted. In the treat ment of diseases peculiar to women it is seldom that a case is seen which doec not present some indication for this remedial agent." "The following are among the lead ing indications for Helonias: Pain or aching in the back, with Icucorrhrea; atonic (weak) conditions of the repro ductive organs of women, mental de pression and irritability, associated with chronic diseases of the reproduc tive organs of women, constant sensa tion of heat in the region of the kidneys: tnenorrhagia, ("Hooding") due to a weakened condition of the reproductive system; amenorrhea, arising from or accompanying an abnormal condition of the digestive organs and an anaemic (thin blood) habit; dragging sensations iu the extreme lower part of the abdo man." If more or less of the above symp- toms are present, no invalid women can do better than take Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription, one of the leading ingredients of which is Unicorn root, or Helonias.
