Facial Indications in the Case of • Bibulous I'aticnt SuKBesled the Rainbow. A Virginia reader sends a story told by the late Alban S. Payne as an actual occur rence. says tne Philadelphia Times. It con cerned a hard-riding, hard-drinking young Englishman, who settled near Linden, that state, in tne expressed hope that the rustic surroundings would prove an aid in ridding him ot tits abnormal thirst. But he cluug to his old habits, and soon became a eon noisseur in moonshine distillations, rather preferring them, after a time, to those bear ing the government stamp. His face was a mingled purple and sunset red, the joint product of whisky and an open-air life; and tie had nothing of charm apart from his faultless manners to offer the pretty moun tain girl who oonsented to become his wife. One afternoon he was carried home, pretty well mussed up as the result of a fail. The gravel of the roadside, the green of the grass and the smear from some cuts added to the colorfulness of his countenance; and the young wife, when Dr. Payne arrived, rushed out ou the porch, screaming; “Oh, doctor! doctor! go in to him—quick! He has all the diseases of the rainbow!” St. Jacob* Oil. In cases wiiere bronchitis has become chronic from want of proper treatment m the earlier stages, there is nothing so good as Dr. August Koenig’s llambuig Breast Tea, in conjunction with which is strongly advised the use of St. Jacobs Oil as an out ward application, along the* front, of, the throat, trom close up under the chin to well down to the top of tiie chest; the one rem edy assists the other, and, as intended, they work in complete unison. The wonderful penetrating power of St. Jacobs Oil en ables it to reach the adhesion of foreign matter which lines the bronchial tubes and which makes breathing more and more dif ficult. As these adhesions become inflamed and enlarged, St. Jacobs Oil causes such ad hesions to break away, making expectora tion easier and more free. Dr. August Koenig’s Hamburg Breast Tea, drank slowly and very hot, soothes and heals the parts, is comforting and quieting, stops the cough and relieves the breathing. This manner of treatment (and there is no other two remedies that will work together so suc cessfully) reaches the difficulty from the outside and the inside at the same time. St. Jacobs Oil reaches the roots of the ad hesion, and assists Dr. August Koenig's Hamburg Breast Tea in clearing them; then both remedies act in unison in healing and curing. The above remarks apply with equal force in cases of asthma, croup, whooping cough? enlarged tonsils, and all bronchial affections. Every family should have St. Jacobs Oil and Dr. August Koenig’s Ham 1. -l1_ der that they may be promptly used in tbe first stages. Often the maladies develope wi'h wonderful rapidity, and complications take place with equal suddenness. In the Proper Order. “But ctn you cook?” asked the prosaic young mm. “Let us take these questions up in their proner order.” returned the wise girl. “The matter of cooking is not the first to be con sidered.” “Then what is the first?” be demanded. “Can you provide the things to be conked?" Thus is conceited man sometimes “put to the bad,” so to speak.—Chicago Post. Lionel Ardon. One of the new novels of exceptional merit, builded along historical lines, is “Lionel Ar don,” by Malcolm Dearborn. Like many of the novels of the time it takes its name from that of the hero. The scene is Eng land and the time that of Henry VIII., and through to Queen Elizabeth. The hero, Lion el, is the son of Lord Ardon, who is killed in a duel with Lord Haven, and his death is quickly avenged by the young son. The story follows the enrtance of the hero into English court life, and contains some bril liant descriptions of the gayeties and festivi ties of those times. One of the principal characters is Lady Jane Grey, who is, in fact, the real heroine. Thisis the only novedthat has ever brought to the sympathy and ad miration of story readers that woman of purity and exquisite womanliness. Pub lished bv G. W. Dillingham Company, New York.

Boies, deal er in grain and feed, 505 South Water Street, Akron, O., trade the following statement in 1S96, he said: “Ever since Ibe Civil War I have had attacks of kidney and bladder troubles, decid edly worse during the last two or three years. Although I consulted physicians, some of whom told me I was verging on Bright’s disease, and I was continually using standard rem edies, the excruciating aching just across the kidneys, which radiated to the shoulder blades, still existed. As might be expected when my kidneys were in a disturbed condition, there was a distressing and inconvenient difficulty with the action of the kid ney secretions. A box of Doan’s Kid ney Pills, procured at Lamparter & Co.’s drug store, brought such a de cided change within a week that I continued the treatment. The last attack, and it was particularly ag gravated, disappeared.” Three Years After. Mr. Boies says in 1899: “In the spring of 1896 I made a public state ment of my experience with Doan’s Kidney Pills. This remedy cured me oft a terrible aching in the kidneys, in the small of my back, in the mus cles of the shoulder blades, and in the limbs. During the years thathave gone by I oanconscientiously say there have been no recurrences of my old trouble. My confidence in Doan’s Kidney Pills Is stronger than ever, not only from my personal experience but from the experience of many others in Akron which have come to my notice.” A FREE TRIAL of this great kid ney medicine which cured Mr. Boies will be mailed on application to any part of the United States.

BEAUTIFYING THE FARM HOME One of the Surest Methods of W«<> dinsr the Farmer’s Wife and Family to the Farm. One great mistake thousands of farmers make is in not beautifying their homes and making them attrac tive to themselves, their children and to the public. In traveling about the country one sees thousands of barn like and shed-like houses on the farms, and many of them without a flower, shrub or even shade-tree about them. Some have a few shade-trees about them, and at a distance one would be led to 1 elieve that they were neat little homes, but closer view dis pels the illusion. Chickens, ducks and little pigs about the front yard or in the usual puddle near the well, with a big brindle dog under the doorstep, incline one to drive on to the next house if thirsting for a drink of wa ter. Very seldom does one see a farm home where any realty effective effort has been made to make it and its surroundings attractive. Occasionally one will drive into a community where a grange or some other farmers' organization exists, and lie will note at once the improve ment in the homes and their sur roundings. Here are trees, shrubs and flowers on fairly clean lawns, with a swing or hammock and a chair or two, and he will note the absence of pigs, fowls and the big brindle dog. One feels safe in i topping at such a place for a drink of water or to pur chase a quart of milk to drink as he eats his lunch. Yet even on these place there is not the touches of neat ness and prettiness one sees about the suburban home of tfie merchant, law yer or other townsman. This is not because the latter has better oppor tunities, but because he spends more on his home. Usually the farmer is not slow about spending money for farm buildings and fences, or for re pairs about the house; but when it comes to beautifying the house and its immediate surroundings he shuts himself and his pocketboolc up ls close as a clam. This is where the mistake is made. The townsman ornaments his dwell incr nml nnt« irrm nhnirs nnrl ant.tppu under liis trees, screens in his large porches, plants the brightest of flow ers in prettily-edged flower-beds, erects an ornamental fence about his lot, and does all he can to make it attractive, though liis income may be no longer than that of the farmer who thinks it foolishness to spend money on such things. Beautiful country homes, these make the coun try attractive. They need not be ex pensive, they can be pretty without being costly, and above all they may be eomf irtable. A fanner who sold his farm and moved into town and built a neat little cottage said, after he had lived in town two years: “1 can't understand why I was so short sighted as to live 30 years on my farm in the next thing to a shack! I never once thought of making my farm home attractive. When I moved to town, the first thing I thought of was a pretty little cottage in which to live. If I had built a nice cottage on my farm, and made it as neat and homelike as the one I built in town, my wife would never have wanted to come here. I can see now what a pretty spot I could have made of it. The ground lay just right for muk ing a splendid laws. I had plenty of water and power for making a beuu tiful fountain. The old tree—oalis, maples and elins—are grand, and all that was needed to make a home that would have been the crowning glory of that locality was a little sense!” INTENSIVE FARMING. The Farmer Who Makes the Best Vse of All His Opportunities is the Oue Who Will Succeed. “Results, that’s what counts,” was the inelegant but forceful expression of one of our great men in comment ing on his party’s work in congress. If the remark be applied to farming its significance and truthfulness lose no force; rather, is peculiarly appro priate. There are theories and theo ries, and endless ways of doing things, especially in farming and stock-rais ing, and no one method can be select ed and proven superior under all cir cumstances to any other. There can be but one test, and that is “results.” In farming, the man who does the most with the available means is rightfully accounted most successful. After all, success is a relative term, in which the positive and superlative degrees are widely separated. It would be a strange situation, indeed, if all farmers were equally successful in their calling As well expect equal success among business men. Neigh bors on adjoining farms who are con fronted by the very same conditions of soil, climate and moisture are very seldom equally successful. Eliminat ing the element of luck, there is no reason why these neighbors should not be equally successful if the same methods be followed. Probably no case can be furnished where the true cause for variation in results can not be reduced to the question of method, alone. There is probably no farming community in the country that is without its farmer who appears to get along somewhat more easily than his neighbors. His crops not only appear to grow more luxuriantly than those of his neighbors, but they actually do. Similar conditions are found in all the departments of his farm. It appears as if nature were a willing slave to obey the commands of this fortunate man, whose instruc tions never prove amiss, and whose plans never fail. The results of his methods are visible, and by carefully observing them they may be imitated to the advantage of those who desire better results from their farming. Let the reader take any one in his own community who is successful above the average, and study his methods, and certainly it will become apparent that his success is the off spring of intelligent endeavor. He makes a partner of nature rather than a poorly paid hireling. He has his mill ready to grind when the wind blows, and his crops receptive for the shower. Ip short, he does all ha can, and strives to benefit from 1 nature’s gift in the largest possible measure. Concentrated effort in farming has produced results that are truly amadc ing. Attention to details and economy of force combine to give apparently abnormal ojul impossible returns. Nevertheless, it has been demonstrate ed time and again in these latter days that the business of farming may al so be made to grow and assume not only gigantic proportions, but to ac quire fecundity and intensity unim aginod by those not so fortunate as to witness its operation.—Farm and Fireside. THE MUCH ABUSED HOG. Some Farmers Seem to Tlilnk Any. thins is Good Enonvh For the Hog, and to Their Cost. Perhaps the whole range of farm life no better—or worse—example of “let well enough alone” can be found than in the case of the poor neglected pig. As we all know, this animal will live and, to a certain extent.,thrive un der the most adverse conditions. There are always a multitude of things to be looked after on a farm: some of them must be looked after promptly and thoroughly or they will be complete losses; others can be somewhat neglected and still counted on yielding a fair return. The hog, of all farm animals, of all farm work, is the most accommodating, the most patient of neglect, hence the hog is tlie most neglected. lie may be put into a pen scarce large enough for him to turn about in, be made to plow his way in half his depth of mud and filth, be without shelter from the rain and without straw for bed ding. and yet he will grow and add his full share to the farm profits. As a pig—clean, keen and healthy—he is put into his narrow quarters, perhaps into four or five inches of oozy mud as left by his predecessor, and from that on to the time when he too is ready for the pork barrel, there is but one thought regarding him—to feed him to his fullest capacity. The farmer is not so much to blame as might- appear at first thought. He is very busy, the pig is very accommo dating, the results in any case fairly i fill TP nS’llA n fput V»miT*e wapI/ ttmnlfl mean a good pen, with sufficient shelter, and clean ground and straw for bedding; but there are fields to be made ready, seeds to be planted, crops to be looked after, all impatient of de lay, so, as the pig grows and grunts on contentedly, he is passed over and the other things attended to. Now his pork may look all right, and sell for just as much as though he had been exposed to the influence of pure air and sunlight instead of being shut away from it by a perpetual incrusta tion of mud and filth; but enlightened customers are likely to have peculiar views of their own, on this subject.— Frank Sweet, in F.ptiomist. More Room for Improvement. There are but few who devote their whole time exclusively to poultry,and yet the enormous product of eggs and poultry is due to what, may be justly called the extra periods of la bor. Yet, small as is the attention given poultry, the value of such is very great. There is no reason, how ever, why a fair income may not be derived by devoting the whole time to poultry. It is done profitably in France, and there are establishments in England where hundreds of hens are kept and many thousands of dol lars invested. The difference is that but few are. educated to a knowledge of the characteristics of the breeds and the proper mode of management. As our country is large, there is a great diversity of soil and climate, and the people of each section must learn the proper conditions for suc cess. There are a few large poultry farms in America, but there is room for many. That jxmltry can be made a business has been demonstrated at several points; but success has gen erally attended those who sold poul try and eggs, at the same time taking advantage of the high prices for early chicks.—Farm and Fireside.

A horse needs a condensed ra tion; a cow or ox can handle one considerably more bulky. —Keen appetites and good health are boon companions in the chicken yard. Keep your growing chicks moderately hungry all day, but late iuc cvcuiug give uiciu an me grain they will eat up clean, and a little more will not hurt. —It is a curious fact in nature that the flowers that yield honey will also produce as fine fruit as if none of their products had been drawn upon. This arises from the fact that the nectar or honey cup is one organ and the ovary that produces the fruit distinctly another. —Many southern cotton producers may be appropriately classed with those whom the Scriptures say are worse than the infidel: they do not provide for their own households and ruin their brother farmers by rush ing their cotton to the market, there by causing the price to drop below the cost of production in our seo* | tion. —The trend of the great cattle growing industry in the southwest is now toward and into the Dominion of Canada in the northwestern sec tion. It is predicted that not less than 1,000,000 cattle will be trans ferred to that section from north western Texas and adjacent territory I on account of the lapse of leases and I diminished pasturage. |||| Why Because $ H i|| 11^ ■ I / l Its comPonent Pa^ts are all wholesome.
