THE CHIEF THING
In Maintaining Good Health is Pure, Rich, Nourishing Blood. Th<' blood carries nourishment and furn* ishes support for the organs, nervfts and muscles.- It must be made rich and pure if you would have strong nerves, good digestion, sound sleep, or if you would be rid of that tired feeling, those dis agreeable pimples, eczema, or scrofula. No medicine is equal to Hood's Sarsapa rilla for purifying the blood. It is a med icine of genuine merit and will do you wonderful good. Try it now. Hood's Pills Deafness Cannot Be Cared by local applications, as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure deafness, and that is by constitu tional remedies. D- afueHS is caused by an in flamed coudition of the mucous liningof the Eustachian Tube. When this tube gets in flamed you have a rumbling sound or imper fect hearing, and when it is entirely closed Deafness i* tne result, and unless the inflam mation can bo taken out and this tube re tored to Its normal condition, hearing will be destroy! d forever. Nine cases out of ten are caused by catarrh, which is nothing but an in flamed < ondition of the mucous surfaces.

The Duke of Ossone, while viceroy of Naples, delivered many quaint and clever Judgment*. The case 1* relat ed where a young Spanish exquisite named Bertram! Solus, while lounging around in the busy part of the city, was run against by a porter carrying a bun dle of wood on his shoulder. The porter had called out, "Make way, please!" several times, but with out effect. He had then tried to get by without collision, but bis bundle caught in the young man's velvet dress and tore It. Solus was highly Indignant, and had the porter arrested. The vice roy, who had privately Investigated the matter, told the porter to pretend he was dumb, and at the trial to reply by signs to any question that might be put to him. When the case came on and Solus had made his complaint, the viceroy turned to the porter and asked him what he had to say in reply. The por ter only shook Ills head and made signs with his hands. "What judgment do you want me to give against a dumb man?" asked tho viceroy. "Oh, your excellency." replied Solus, J ailing Into the I rap. "the man Is an Im postor. I assure you he Is not dumb. Before be ran into me I distinctly heard him cry out, 'Make way.' " "Then," said the viceroy, sternly, "if you heard him ask you to make way for him, why did you not? The fault of the accident was entirely with yourself, and you must give this poor man com oensatlon for the trouble you have giv 'n him In bringing him here." New View of the Matter.

Southern Governors are carrying out their traditional gallantry by ap | pointing ladies as Colonels on their I staffs. As the principal duty of a stall' officer in these piping times of I peace is to look beautiful in gorgeous costumes and lend magnificence to official occasions, tbere seems to be no reason whatever for adverse com ment on the action of the gallant Gov ernors.—Baltimore American. The I'ope'a Golden Ito*e. I The Golden Rose that the Pope is I to bestow ou the Princess Marie Lou ise is not a single blossom, but a gleaming branch composed of several flowers, buds, leaves and even thorns, the rose at the top being the largest. It is all of purest gold, and within the rose is a tiny golden cup, with a lid, containing musk aud palm oil which the Pope has blessed. The rose is planted in a vase of gold, chased with the entwined armorial bearings of the great prelate and the royal Princess. The Papal oflicial who is to bear the splendid gift is vested with the dig l nity and importance of an Ambassador and will be received with great honors i by the House of Wurtemburg.—New York Observer. Healthful Walking. When a girl walks she should be trained to hold her shoulders well back and to keep her arms close to her body. The chest will then be thrown out, not form an inward curve, and the head must be held up fearlessly. Home women go through life with the head held a little forward, remiudiug one of nothing so much as an inquir ing tortoise out on a voyage of diseov j ery. The foot should be placed on the ground on the ball ttrst, not ou the j heel, or qviite flat. The latter way robs one of all grace, and to put the heel first is too ungainly for words. It is just as ugly to mince along on I the toes; it looks as though the ground was overheated and unable to be trodden on. Even when climbing a hill, or mounting the rather dingy staircases of town-built houses and flats, the head should be held up, not drooped as though you were searching for a lost coin.—Home Doctor. A Woman's Outfit. An interesting phase of the Klon dike craze is the frantic determina tion of rnuny young women to go. All I the expeditions are beseiged by wo men applicants. A woman who has roughed it on the Klondike says that her sisters who go to the far uovth will need the follow ing outfit: One medicine case, filled on the ad vice of a good physician; two pairs of extra heavy, all-wool blankets; one small pillow, one fur robe, one warm shawl, one fur coat, easy fitting; three warm woolen dresses, with comforta ble bodices and skirts knee length, flannel lined; three pairs of knickers or bloomers to match the dresses; three suits of heavy, all-wool under wear; three warm llanuel nightdresses, four ,-pairs of knitted wooleu stock ings, one pair of i-übber boots, three | gingham aprons that reach from neck to knees, small roll of flannel, for in soles, wrapping the feet and bandages, a sewing kit, such toilet articles as are absolutely necessary, including some skin uugent to protect the face from the icy cold, two light blouses or shirt waists for summer wear, one oil skin blanket in which to wrap her ofl'ects, to lie secured at Junction of St. Michael, one fur cape, two pairs of fur gloves, two pairs of fur seal moc casins and two pairs of wet weather moccasins. It is added that the female gold hunter may dispense with tight lac ing, as this would retard travel over | the mountains. The publication of this list of things necessary to a woman who would seek her fortune on the Klondike has dampened the ardor of some of the would-bo miners, who figure that the I outfit would cost about s7oo.—St. Louis Republic. California has a woman sign painter. Mrs. Bensely, of Philadelphia, re joices in an income of $20,000 a year derived from an invention of her owu —a machine that hoops barrels, j Miss Helen Hay, who, as the daugh j tnr of the American Ambassador to the ; Court of St. James, has already won j distinguished social success, has uow male her debut as a poet. Amateur theatricals, short-sleeved dresses aud swimming baths are for -1 bidden to the women of Dulmeu, in j Westphalia, by authority of their par ish priest, because they are dangerous to morals. ! A woman of ninety-seven, now liv ' ing in the South, recently had a pro posal of marriage. She is "Western by birth, is said to be wonderfully attrac tive and looks thirty years younger than she is. Miss Emery, a graduate of Bryn Mawr and a student at several institu tions in Europe, whose home is at Ellsworth, Me., has been elected a dean of the department of women in the University of Wisconsin. Throughout Germany aud Holland, whenever girls can be employed to advantage, they are taken in prefer ence to young men. At Munich the clerks and bookkeepers in the banks are nearly all young aud handsome girls. Mrs. Jennie Benson conducts a large store iu Omaha, Neb., and employs only women and girls in the establish ment. She has managed her business alone for nearly ten years, and comes to the East regularly to select aud purchase her stock. Spanish aud French women of the higher class are usually expert swords women. They are taught to fence as carefully aud accurately as their brothers, and there are numerous schools in the two countries where young women are taught not only to fence, but to handle the broadsword. Miss Gertrude Dwyer, of San Arc tonio, was crowned "Gertrude the First, Queen of Texas," at the May festival in San Antonio. She has gone on a royal visit to President Diaz, in the city of Mexico, and it is said that Her Majesty is to negotiate and obtain some valuable commercial privileges for her native State. Baltimore grammar school teachers have declared by resolution that the public school library should have for its librarian, in order that it may be productive of the best results, a wo manly woman who shall also be a wo* man of culture and learning, and able to give advice and assistance in the selection of books. It is claimed that Miss Edith T. Griswold is the only woman solicitor of patents in New York City. She has her own office in a Broadway sky scraper aud has been iu her present profession for twelve years, She is a graduate of the New York Normal College, is studying law, and will soon apply for admission to the bar. Miss Helen Gould has been in Chau tauqua for several days and every effort has been made to guard her from beg ging petitions. But when she heard that $50,000 was required by Bishop Vincent for building a hall, and that there was a deficiency of SSOOO, she sent a check for that The building will be used as a gallery of sacred art and a repository for sacred literature. Fashion Notes. Braids and braiding are fashionable fall trimmings. Striped silks will be very fashion able for costumes and waists. Gray and red—both good fall colors —and black remain very stylish. Short, flat basques are to return, though round waists continue in style, and velvet is to be favored for dress accessories. Yellow and mauve form a very pretty combination on light summer gowns when the tints and textiles are care fully chosen. Petticoats of ecru linen batiste, with colored polka dots, are much used for summer wear and are much cooler than the silk ones. The new shirt waists of transparent materials are much improved for the stout figure by a fitted aud boued lining of lawn in some plain color or white. Plaited chiffon, liberty silk and mousseline de soie constitute the most popular trimmiug for the sleeves of the dressy waist that has a frilled effect at the shoulder. The French muslins are, if possible, prettier thnu ever this season, and while the tinted grounds are exceed ingly beautiful in coloring, the cream white muslins, dotted or flowered, are quite as popular. borne of the newest India silks are brocaded iu small Marie Antoinette figures, and other plain ludias so thin that they are almost like gauze or silk mull are one of the Parisian novelties that can lie accordiou-plaited as effec tually as chiffon. Narrow velvet ribbon is used on everything. An imported cape of old rose silk has rows of black velvet rib bon running down it at of about an inch. Around the shoulders the silk is plaited iu so thiokly that at the neck nothing is visible except the ribbon. The garnitures on summer dress skirts are almost as varied as the de corations on tho bodices which com plete them; and frills, folds, flounces, Huttings, fluttering ribbons, tucks, cordings, shirriugs and kiltings flourish where but recently appeared only the plain, unadorned, uudraped models. Steel oruameuts promise to become as popular as they were several years ago. Fortunate is the woman who has the habit of saving things, for she can take out her steel ornaments of any description, don them afld l est assured that she is doing the correct thing. Steel combs are much worn and look well against either dart or light hair. Velvet bands for the nCak, thickly sewed with steel, are also in hinh furor. • AGRICULTURAL TOPICS. Protecting Cow From Flies. A very weak dilution of carbolic acid will keep llies off from cows in hot weather. The carbolio acid may be made stronger and mixed with aorne grease to put around the cowa' horns, as the horn fly is more persistent in its attacks a't this point, and there is no danger of the acid here where -the cow cannot get at it to lick it. No cow likes the odor of carbolio acid. Cure For Hog Cholera. Dr. Salmon, of the Government Bu reau of Animal Industry, i 3 credited with recommending the following as a cure for hog cholera: Wood charcoal, one part; sulphur one part; salt, two parts; bicarbonate of sodium, two parts; sodium hyposulphite, two parts; sodium sulphate, one part ; antimony sulphide, one part—ten parts in all. Pulverize and mix thoroughly. Dose, one tablespoonful for each 200 pounds of hogs once a day. Oxen or Hones. I hope to live to see the day when the big oxen of olden times will agai%, adorn the farms of Kennebec. On almost every farm now you may find a pair of big Western or Canadian horses, aud in a few years they will wear out aud the money for another pair must come from somewhere beside their earnings. When you sell a pair of oxen for which Kennebec was once noted you get money enough to buy another pair and have some left to pay your taxes with. Then again you yoke up your oxen and put them astride a cart-tongue or sled handle and go to work; while with horses you must have a full accompauimeut of rigging to go with them aud then you need a harness maker and blacksmith to follow up.—D. H. Thing, in New England Farmer. Operate Smaller Farms. E. McG-uire, of New York, writes: There is much complaint among farm ers, especially in the Eastern States, about poorly paying crops, and part of this complaint is justified, but after an extended experience iu farming, I have come to the conclusion that it pays better to have a small farm free front debt, to which has been applied large amounts of fertilizing materials, than a large one with a mortgage and with a depleted soil. Many a man who has owned a large farm died poor where lie might have lived and farmed profitably a smaller one. It is true that times have been bard and taxes heavy, but it is also true that mauy who complain, have only themselves to blame. Tltey have attempted too much. That mau who will struggle under a heavy mortgage to retain a large farm which be cannot profitably cultivate, is very unwise. My advice is to sell enough land to pay off the mortgage, then begin again on a small but well cultivated farm. My motto is less laud, more manure aud uo mort gage. The land must be fed if it is to be productive. Farm more upon these principles and less upon theory, avoid extravagant living and be guided by the examples of the sturdy old time farmers. Hot Weather Cliee *e Making. Professor J. W. Robertson, of the Ontario Agricultural College says: A cheese factory's reputation is largely determined by the quality of its August, September and October out put. Inefficient drainage facilities will show their worst effects during warm "weather. Clean the whey tank at least once. Flies must be kept out of the mak ing room. Some afternoon when the cheese are iu the hoops burn a small quantity of sulphur in the room after closing up the doors and windows. If a tablespoonful of alcohol be mixed with the sulphur it will burn more readily. Care uiust be taken to pre vent the fumes getting into the curing room. The tins of the milk vats and the inside of the sinks should be washed after this fnmigatiug process before they are used. Iu the curing room, ventilate dur ing early morning and at night to keep the temperature as low as possi ble. Sprinkle the floors with cold water morning, noon aud evening. While the cheese are being turned on the shelves there should be au abun dant admission of light. When flies are apt to be abundant, a plentiful shaking of fly powder in the room be fore shutting up for the day will de stroy them. When the evenings aro cool and the milk needs ripening, do not fail to leave it in the vat until it reaches the proper stage of maturity before the rennet is added. Use enough rennet to coagulate the milk in forty minutes when it is set at eiglity-eiglit degrees. Dilute the ex tract to the extant of one pailful of water for every vatfnl of milk aud then mix it thoroughly by rapid, vigorous stirring. When troubled with gassy curds, allow a development of acid such as will be indicated by threads by the hot iron test a quarter of an inch long. Before removing the curd, it is a good plan to run most of the whey off at an early stage and to leave only enough to permit a free stirring of the curd. After the curd cutter has been used, stir for twenty minutes before apply ing the salt. Then cnrd should be put into the hoops within twenty min utes after the salt has been mixed in. Apply the pressure very gradually. The cheese should be bandaged very neatly when they are turned in the hoops within two hours after they are put iu the press. When practicable, cheese should be pressed for at least twenty-four hours. DORA In Mexico Are Tied in Clturrhefl. There is a miserable dog tied up iu the Episcopal Church now under erection on Bucareli avenue that keeps up a dismal howling from sunset to sun rise, greatly to the annoyance of thl many families residingin that vicinity, —Mexican Herald. - FIVE AMERICAN PRODIGIES. Threo Girls, the Oldest Only Thirteen, Weigh 1200 Pounds—A 330-Pound Boy. The largest children in the world, so far as any records show, belong to a family named Davis, which lives near Huntington, W. Va. The father j and mother of these "little ones" are both rather undersized as compared with the sturdy farmers of this dis trict. The children, three in number, the eldest of which is under thirteen years of age, weigh together nearly 1200 pounds. In connection with the remarkable sturdiness of the trio there is a curious story. When some thir teen years ago the Davises' first child was born it was very delicate, aud it lived only two months. The mother was prostrated with grief at its death, and at the time she vowed solemnly that if Providence would again make her a mother her life would be spent in prayer for the health of the little one. A year later a little jiri was born to the couple, and Mrs. Davis, true to her vow, divided her time be tween the care of her child and prayer for its health. She regularly spent hours upon her knees. She seldom spoke except in words of entreaty to the Almighty to preserve her child, who was christened Mary. The result must have been very gratifying to the mother. The puny infant soon de veloped into a sturdy child. Iu two months it weighed fifty pounds and at the end of two years it tipped the scales at one hundred and eighty pounds. The mother meanwhile con tinued her prayers. Two years after (the birth of Mary another little girl jwas born to the Davises and fouz years later another was added. To day Mary, now in her thirteenth year, weighs 581 pounds; her next sister in point of age, Janie Belle,, aged nine, tips the beam at 881 pounds, while the latest addition, Cleora, now but seven, promises to rival her sisters, having the entirely creditable weight of 248 pounds. The family attracted the attention of Barfmui iu 1881), who offered $11),000 for the privilege ol exhibiting them for five years. The Davises, however, indignantly refused the offer. The champion fat boy of America in all probability is Martin Burman, of Coopersville, Mich. This sturdy young one has but recently completed his twelfth year. He has made good use of this time, however, having at tained the promising weight of just 320 pounds. Martin is the pride of the town. When he parades the streets, as he often does, tlia entire population eye him with wonder and admiration. This is largely due to the fact that the other towns in the vicinity—Millington and Williamson —both claim to have the champion fat boy. Coopersville does not even admit the rivalry. It looks at Martin and defies all competition. Martin, the pride of Coopersville, is 5 feet 8 inches in height aud measures 58 inches around the waist, 18 inches around the biceps, while the upper part of his legs spans 33 inches. His parents are of average size aud his brothers are like other children. Claim* All Taken. A letter received here from John C. Gilpatrick, now in Alaska, says: "We left Chicaloon with our dog sleds and had a terrible trip iu walk ing over snow that was eight or ten feet deep. Although wearing snow shoes, many times during the day we snnk deep into the snow banks. We were worn out and exhausted and went to sleep, leaving our dogs standing in the snow. "Many a "day we wearily plodded along, expecting every moment to sink down with exhaustion. We are iu the gold fields and have found nothing worth mentioning. "I would advise my friends not to come here under any consideration, for every mining claim is staked out from the center of the sea to the tops of the snow bound mountains, and there are more liars to a square foot in this country than can be found any where upon the top of the eafth. "We are making some money by . hunting and trapping and selling the meats to the gold seekers."—Louis ville Courier-Journal. Coat or Pofttal Service. The postal service of the United States costs $9,000,000 a year above roceipts, while that of Great Britain yields a profit of oversl4,ooo,ooo, that of France nearly $10,000,000, that of Germany $8,000,000, that of Russia $8,000,000, and that of even India and Japan $1,500,000. About the only other nations whose postal service does not pay expenses are Canada, Norway, Siam, Chile, Peru, Bulgaria and Bolivia. This deficit in the United States is largely caused by au interpretation of the law that carries in the mails an enormous amount of printed matter at a sum greatly below the oost of so doing. Repeated efforts have been made to repeal it, but a powerful lobby has prevented their success.—Boston Herald. A Find of Zircon*. There has been an important dis covery of zircons in Tasmnuia. These gems are supposed only to be found iu Ceylon, a part of the Ural Moun tains and in Southern Kovtvay. The zircon is heavier than the diamond and nearly as hard, and is unaffected by the most intense heat. The pro duct of the gem, oxide of zirconia, is reckoned of high commercial value iu connection with the manufacture of mantles for incandescent lights. Steps are now being taken to efficiently work the Tasmania ilud. A Big Canal Project.

WHY SO MANY BEGULAR PHYSICIANS FAIL To Cure Female Ilia—Some True Reasons Why Mra. Plnkham ia More Successful Than ( v) A woman is sick : some disease peculiar to her the years ago Mrs. Lydia E. Pink hain.at Lynn, Mass., determined to-step in andhelphersex. had consid erable experience in treating' female ills with her Vegetable Compound, she en j eouraged the women of America to write to her for advice in regard to their complaints, and, being a woman, it was easy for her ailiug sisters to pour into her ears every detail of their suffering. In this way she was able to do for them what the physicians were unable to do, simply because she had the proper information to work upon, and ' l'rom the little group of women who sought her advice years ago a great army of her fellow-beings are to-day constantly applying for advice and re- I lief, and the fact that more than one hundred thousand of them have been j successfully treated by Mrs. Pinltham during the last year is indicative of the grand results which are produced by her unequaled experience and training. Ko physician in the world has had such a training, or has such an amount of information at hand to assist in the treatment of all kinds of female ills, from the simplest local irritation to the most complicated diseases of the womb. This, therefore, is the reason why Mrs. Pinkham, in her laboratory at Lvnn, Mass., ia able to do more for the ailing women of America than the family physician. Any woman, therefore, is responsible for her own suffering who will not take the trouble to write to Mrs. Pinkhara for advice. The testimonials which we are constantly publishing from grateful women establish beyond a doubt the power of Lydia E. Pinkliam's Vegetable Com- Dound to conquer female diseases.
