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

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.

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

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 &

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

limbs. During the years thathave gone

been no recurrences of my old trouble.

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!”
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
nature’s gift in the largest possible
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

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

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

advantage of the high prices for early
chicks.—Farm and Fireside.
