But uneasy lies the head that wears the crown or anticipates this coronation, when there is a lack of womanly strength to beat the burdens of maternal dignity and duty. The reason why so many women sink under the strain of motherhood is because thev are unprepared. "I unhesitatingly advise expectant moth ers to use Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescrip, tion,'writes Mrs.J.W. G. Stephens, of Mila, Northumberland Co., Va. The reason foi this advice is that Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre scription is the best preparative for the maternal function. No matter how healthy and strong a woman may be, she cannot use "Favorite Prescription" as a prépara live for maternity without gain of health and comfort. But it is the women who are not strong who best appreciate the great benefits received from the use of "Favorite Prescription." For one thing its use makes the baby's advent practically painless. It has in many cases reduced days of suffer ing to a few brief hours. It has changed the period of anxiety and struggle into a time of ease and comfort. The proprietors and makers of Doctot Pierce s Favorite Prescription now feel fully warranted in offering to pay $soo for any case of I.eucorrhea, Female Weakness, Prolapsus, or Falling of Womfc, which they cannot cure.

They have already repaid their cost many times over, and their services have only be gun. They are doing for the farmers, things which need to be done, but which the farmers are unable to do. The average farmer has neither the time, the money, the patience, nor the ability to conduct original researches. But it is necessary that such re searches be made and for this purpose the stations were established. Conse quently they reserve the support and the co-operation of every farmer. There are often many ways in which / the farmers could be ofi service to their station and through it to the pro fession as a whole. Every such oppor tunity should be improved. The Ir.rm ers should also see that their state legislatures aid the stations to the ex tent of their ability. Money thus spent is not wasted, but is invested where it will give large returns. The farmers should also profit by the labors of the station to a much great er extent than they do now. Every farmer should secure the bulletins of his station, and also such publications of the United States Department of Agriculture as will be useful to him, and study and preserve them. By so doing he will soon have a library of the best agricultural thought at al most no cost. It does not always follow that when we figure up our bank account we are counting our blessings. It takes something more than dollars and cents to make a man happy. That's what! HINTS ABOUT PAINTING. Now is the time to paint the barn and other outbuildings, as well as the tools. A cheap and durable paint Is made of Venetian red. linseed oil and lac quer. i.ac'iuer is a liquid drier, and *s use.d for (he purpose of not only making a better paint, but for caus ing the paint to dry more readily. The more lacquer put into paint the sooner it will dry. Paint all the buildings and tools, and tnus keep out the moisture and double the life of the woodwork. When you get a new brush hold it with the hair end up and the handle down, spread llie bristles and pour in a spoonful of good varnish, allowing It to become dry. This has a ten den:y to prevent the brush shedding its bristles when it is used and also keeps it from shrinking and falling to pieces. As soon as you are through painting wipe the brush clean and wrap it in a paper. Then hang it in a smalt deep vessel convening linseed oil. In this way h v-ill I cep clean and always be ready for u ■ It is a mistake to keep brushes in water, as il will not pre serve them so well as in oil, and does not keep them soft and pliable. Talk the farm up. not run it down. Things go downward grade fast enough without our giving them a shove with our own hands. He is the best farmer who loves his place and his work, and tells the world so. STUDY AT HOME. Not everyone can go away to col lege or bit. 'ness school because of lack both of time and money. Some of our most successful men in busi nes , politics and in the professions obtained their start ip life by study ing during the evening and at odd spells. The main thing to make home study most elective Is to have it well di rected. A great help ia this line has been the correspondent© schools, set oral of which are being conducte sum .ti;. in various parts of thi country, i . ;aki»g a course of study as outlined at one of these schools a student, has every advantage of home stiu,. , witl. the added help of dlrec tion by trained teachers. Much more can be accomplished 1: this way than from studying alom so that a few months' study will ofte prepare one to take a paying positii . in some n< w line of work. Courses agriculture are also offered which fit one to better carry on the duties am work of the farm and to make it more profitable and successful. All vegetables keep better at a low temperatur- and, excepting in the se verest weather, the cellar window may be kept open during the day, at least, if it is on the south side. It also helps to keep the cellar sweet and fresh. We know there is no need of an ill-smelling cellar. Vegetables properly buried and an open wiadow in all suitable weather will prevent unsavory odors. Have a regular time for closing the window, as you do for ar.y other "chore," and all will be well. If potatoes have to be handled it should he done with care, for potatoes will bruise, notwithstanding me treat ment sorai farmers give them, would lead one to suppose such a thing aa Impossible.
