L L.LYONS & CO., Proprietors, * The Greatest Medical Discovery of the Age. KENNEDY'S MEDICAL DISCOVERY. DONALD KENNEDY, OF ROXBURY, MASS., Has discovered in one of our common pasture weeds a remedy that cures every kind of Humor, from the worst Scrofula down to a common Pimple. He has tried it in over eleven hundred cases, and never failed except in two cases (both thunder humor). He has now in his possession over two hundred certificates of its value, all within twenty miles of Boston. A benefit is always experienced from the first bottle and a perfect cure is war ranted when the right quantity is taken. When the lungs are affected it causes shooting pains, like needles passing through them; the same with the Liver or Bowels. This is caused by the ducts being stopped, and always disappears in a week after taking it. if the stomach is foul or bilious it will cause squeamish feelings at first. No change of diet ever necessary. Eat the best you can get, and enough of it. Dose, one tablespoonful in water at bed time, and read the Label. McELREES' WINE OF GARDUI.

To provide some diversion for visitors who had seen the sights and whose in terest in the exhibits was flag ging the management contrived these meetings between the peo ple of all nations in tests of aquatic skill; and that their efforts have been appreciated has been Satisfactorily demonstrated by the large and eager crowds which have been present at these unique entertainments. Such bouts were hardly ever before wit nessed as have taken place in the la goon of the White City since the novel idea was first introduced, a few days ago. There have been entered in these remarkable contests representatives of almost every race under the sun, ex cepting the Chinese. John is not a lover of notoriety and prefers the re tirement of hNs own quiet quarters and the seductive fumes of his peculiar pipe to the noise and excitement of a public gathering. Besides he is not much given to sports, beyond an occasional hand at his favorite fan-tan, bung-loo or some other game of chance which does not call for much physical exertion. The course followed in the canoe and swimming races is through the court of honor before the Administration build ing and north to the wooded island, and while the races are going on the piers and bridges along the line are a solid mass of people. Prizes ranging in value according to the difficulty of the feat to be per formed are awarded to the successful competitor in each bout, and it is high ly amusing to witness the efforts of the different nationalities to carry off the prize. Each representative has a fol lowing of his countrymen who urge him to his utmost exertion by encouraging shouts in their native tongues.

The contests are amicably set tied, however, and the victorious party departs in high glee, leaving the defeat ed ones to retire gloomily to their quar ters. The occasional parades of the nations are great attractions. The people of the Plaisance all turn out in gala attire and with them take their musical in struments and processional parapher nalia, of which they appear to be very proud. "On these occasions there is 1\-\ 't ý PEOPLE OF CAIRO. usually a large representation from Buffalo Bill's Wild West show, just out side the fair grounds, which is consid erable of a world's fair itself, the cow boys and Indians from the border lands Stingly typifying the American in his ri$ginal state and adding greatly to the ebiaracter and picturesqueness of the In these picturesque processions the children of the desert on their camels are quite prominent.

Pam nnythtnt to b-meR 1aShifaht Within the last few Isys aevessl fete I days have been enjoyably celebrited. Several of the states have hali their days, as -have also the negroes, the grocers and buathers and several be nevolent associations. On these odi sions the crowd attains to mammoth proportions and the grounds present a holiday appearance. Each fetb day is marked by some special order of exer dises. and the members of the' associa-l tion or fraternity so honored lay aside all business cares and flock to the fair grounds for a day of general jollity and recreation. It is safe to say that no world's fair in all the history of na tions has ever been so fully given over to the people as is this of our Cdlum bian year. The daily attendance has reached an average of nearly two hundred thousand and there is a promise qf. a large increase during the remaihing two months of the fair. A payment of ten per cent. on the bonds has aj. been ordered and it begins to looFa A FEATUIRE OF THW PARADE. though there would be some profit in world's fair stock in spite of the opin ion of certain knowing ones to the con trary. Retrenchment has been the order in the management of late and many large salaries have been reduced or entirely cut off, and in other ways the expenses have been reduced, all of which goes to show that our great ex position is in a fair way to prove a financial success. The history of the Sunday closing at the world's fair has been interesting and highly amusing. First, the of ficials declared, in private sesaion, that the gates must be opened on Sunday because they "could not afford to waste the day;" and in public they pleaded the cause of the poor workingman, who had no other day to come to the fair. Religious exercises were arrangeld within the grounds and the gates opened, but somehow the Chicago workingman did not realize his advan tages, or found that a day of sight seeing was the poorest possible prep aration for a week of toil. He did not need the Bible to counsel a day of rest. Experience became an individual and potent teacher. The small crowds that did come on Sunday were far more likely to make their way to the theaters, dancing halls and beer gardens of the Plaisance, than to the Art gallery or Horticultural hall, and few appre ciate the advantage of paying fifty cents to go to church on the fair grounds when far more attractive preaching is offered free of cost out side the gates. The majority of state buildings, all the exhibits of Great Britain and her colonies and hundreds of others were closed on Sunday, and the attendance slowly diminished. Then the authorities discovered that the "poor workingman" inside the grounds needed a day of rest, and, on account of this and other deductions, decided to close the great gates. The Ubiquitoun Guard. They were walking in the Fisheries building. He looked with a hungry eye at the trout, the bass and the pike, and then, having made the rounds of the tanks, he turned to his companion and criticised the exhibit "Why, what is missing?" asked the wife. "Missing!" exclaimed the man, with an air of disgust, "why, they've got everything but the fish we used to catch-the best fish that ever shook a fin or a tail and a fish that should have a gilt-edged tank all by himself." "What fish as that?" "Pumpkin seeds, my dear, pumpkin seeds." "Were you looking for pumpkin seeds?" asked a courteous guard, with some timidity. "That's what we were," growled the visitor. "Well, then, you'll find them over at the Agricultural building," the guard re plied, as he strode away unmindful of the gob of disgust he had left behind. -Chicago Post.

Most southern farmers rely mainly upon the moneyed crop--cotton. Iii March, April and May the crop is planted; in July the crop has been "laid by," and August and September are .passed, for the most part, in com parative idleness; by November 15 the r bulk of the crop is gathered and sold, and nearly all the money spent; and then up to March 1 our farmers per form but little work, except to feed the stock and keep in a supply of wood, eating up and consuming largely what they. have earned by their sum Iner labor. They are poor In purse,of course, and will stay poor, and ought to stay poor. A goodly part of the year is spent in talking politics. Too much cotton and too much loafing in town, and too much talking of politics have almost bank rupted this country. ROBBERY SYSTEM. Robbing the soil year by year, and paying bacek nothing, does not pay in the end. We know some farmers who added largely to their bank accounts by continuous robbing of the soil; but the time came when the soil failed to respond liberally, and in a few years the money in the bank was gone-due to following this persistent and ruth less robbing of the land. But in time, as a matter of natural consequences, the land had become im poverished, and the farmer awoke to the realization of the fact that in rob bing the fertility of his land he had robbed himself, as the gradual disap pearance of the bank fund proved. A number of just such men live right here, and their names and methods are as familiar as the nose on our own face or the hand that pensthese lines. Some of their heads are hoary with the frosts of old age, but not all of them. REDUCE TBEP COST OF PRODUCTION I should be the farmer's earnest study. 1 Cost of production is largely lessened in many ways: First, in having the land well plowed and the clods pulver ized-in fact, by thorough preparation of the soil before the seed are planted. Second, "by using the best quality of seed and putting in the ground in the right manner. Third, by using fertilizers of the right kinds and proportions, wisely applied. Fourth, planting, cultivating and har vesting as much as possible by ma chinery, and substituting animal for human labor. It does not do to plant a crop on poor land and expect much profit.' Poor soil will not produce profitable crops. Cammon sense ought to teach this. But people do not always use their best common sense to the best advantage. It is usually good judgment that in sures success, and bad judgment that results in failure. If we do not cultivate the mind and use the knowledge that experience and reading impart, then we are wast ing our mental capacities and advan tages without practical personal bene fits in winning financial success "hiding our light under a bushel" sacrificing our wealth of natural mind and harvesting thorns and thistles and poverty, when we might have been able to amass wealth in money, wealth in knowledge, and a greater wealth in the reflections of a busy life and days spent for a useful purpose. NATURE HELPS. Let man prepare the soil and fertilize it, sow the seed, cultivate the growing plants, and nature will do the rest. The better the land is prepared, the richer it is made by green or stable manure and commercial fertilizers, and the better the seed and the care in planting, and the more intelligently and thoroughly the crops are culti vated, nature continually assists man's efforts, pursues and finishes its work all the more satisfactorily to the hus bandman. Nature does its work, and does it well; but if man neglects to assist na ture. and refuses to perform his duty in making all the conditions the most favorable, then nature, while still do ing its work well. can not be expected to do man's work, too. and bestow bountiful crops and products of su perior excellence. In agriculture it can truly be said that nature helps those most who helps-nature most. And now, if we do our part well in sowing, fertilizing and cultivating, na ture will do the rest-sustain and watch over and develop the plants, and bring them to maturity and fruition.-Edwin Montgomery, in Farm and Fireside. SPEACH CULTURE. Some lints to Southern Farmers by One Who Has Been There. I have just read WV. L. More's letter on "Peach Culture in the South," and while interested in it I can not approve his plan. Peach trees do not require a very rich soil. Thin, sandy-land, underlaid with gravel, produces fine neaches. On rich land there will be a fine growth of the tree. but the fruit will rot. Ashes and phosphate may be used to advantage, but strong manures should be avoided, lie says a person whocon templates planting a peach orchard should always provide the variety that is best adapted and has been tested by some experienced horticulturist or nursery man and not depend on seedlings. as only one seed in ten will produce fruit like that from which it was taken. While the truth is seven out of ten at least will be the same, two bitter and possi bly one not good. lie shows the value of nursery stock when he sayvs Craw ford's late does not ripen until Octo ber, while it ripens in July, rarely as late as August and comes in immedi ately after Crawford's early. Both of these peaches have a red cheek: the lemon peach does not, yet he seems to think they are the same peach. The true lemon peach, Ipure bred; that is one that has never been grafted. does ripen, he says. in October, but it be longs to the Spanish variety, and was here hundreds of 'years before Craw ford was born. My plan of raising peaches is to get seeds of.tbe varzeties that I want, make a hole in the ground four inches deep, I one hole for each variety, and put a i stake in one which is written the kind. I whether cling or free-stone. large or small, color, and time of ripening. 1 Then Il select the place for my or- i chard. I want a hill. the higher the i better, and if it has been worn out and thrown out, and is grown up in sedge , grass and old field pines, no matter se Ithat the land is sandy, gravely, or a sandy loam, it will do. In August 1 cut ever.ytbing down and burn * .4vou , Then b-ea deep as possible. and plow as sooa ama it is dry enough.after every riin. I save all the ashes I can, br I ng the leaelieid if I can get no other, And sow broadcast on the land and plow under-it March. In April my peaoh seed will begin to sprout and I lay off the land in checks twenty feet wide and plant the seed as soon as sprouted and covet four inches deep with well rotted chip mtanttre or top soil from the woods. If the land is- not as large as is neces sary to plant all my seed I plant in what is called a "quincunx," that is one stree between every four, which gives me more trees to the acre and makes them no nearet together. I drive a stake down by each seed, lay the land off in four feet rows for cot ton, having no cotton in the row of trees. Th'n for the cotton make a compost of cotton seed and phosphate,put in the drill at the rate of 400 pounds of the first and 200 of the latter per acre, The land can be cultivated, if necessary, two years in cotton. The second year sow "Bur" clover seed between the cot ton rows the last of July or first of August, and run a 20-inch sweep just as shallow as possible. The Bur clover will grow through the winter and die down in May or June, when the land can be sown in pease. Never transplant a tree that bears a stone fruit, for it heads off the top - root, and never graft one, for it will soon decay.--C. C. L. Dill, in Southern Farm. Wsanlng Youang Figs. If at five or six weeks old the young pigs are eating and growing well, in crease their feed, giving them all that they will take, and decrease the feed of the sow gradually for nearly two weeks. At the end of this time the two strongest youngsters of the litter are taken away. Again, after two days, another pair, and so on till all are weaned. This tends to even up the different pigs of the litter, if there is any variation in size and uniformity in a lot, and add, to their selling value. By following this course the sow is given the very best chance, and any danger of spoiling her milking quali ties is prevented, which is very impor tant if she is to continue to be a brood sow.--Canadian Live Stock Journal HERE AND THERE. -Religion that will not improve a man's domestic animals is not the right sort for a farmer. -WVood ashes is an almost universal fertilizer, and yet it is a substance that is piled out back of the smoke-house for years, to become a total loss. -No farm was ever properly stocked with cattle alone, horses alone, or any other sort alone. It can only be done with a properly-adjusted variety. -It is well enough to breed heifers early to encourage the early habit. But not so with bulls, for they should be well matured and: vigorous for best results. -There is no money in putting extra weight on hogs to be marketed in the immediate future. Additional fat only means a lower price as things are now. -Don't try to stimulate egg produc tion with irritating condiments. They do more harm than good. Plenty of plain, wholesomne food is what is needed. -The poor man's cow is proverbially a poor cow. but there is no reason why it should be. It is just as easy, and a great deal more profitable to have a good cow than a poor one. -A bridle recently invented for kick ers is useful. It has rings for the reins attached just below the rosettes, or where the check loops up, and pulling raises the horse's head higher and high er so he can not kick. -Any part of the farm, or any sort of stock which is not profitable'is a tax on all the rest of the farm. It should be the aim of every farmer to make a profit, be it ever so little, from every department. -Probably never before this year were hogs turned into the wheat field to harvest an abundant crop, and it is to be hoped that this will never occur again, if brought about by the low price of that cereal. a -Those who raise eggs for market should keep but one breed: or if more than one breed is kept, the eggs should be carefully assorted as to size and color. All white eggs or all tinted eggs sell better than streaked lots. "Looks go a long ways." --Much can be learned by observing nature. A horse will never stand fac ing a wind in a pasture. but will al ways turn his back. A horse heated by driving can be foundered in a few minutes by standing facing the wind or in a draught. --Tt is to be hoped that the experi ment stations will give us more slaugh ter tests of wheat-fed hogs. The low price of wheat has opened a new field for feeders, and thi stations can help settle some of the questions which have arisen in connection with it. -If combined capital does not con sider it advisable to crush them out of existence. the cotton-seed oil mills now operating in every locality where cot ton is grown extensively will continue to benefit the producer of cotton, while remaining prosperous themselves. --Many farmers breed horses to suit their os-n prejudices, regardless of any market value, while those who make horse-breeding profitable breed for the markets big, heavy draft horses or large, stylish coachers. The grade mares make the finest farm teams and the geldings sell at top prices. --Tt is said to be so dry in some parts of the country that farmers have to soak their pigs in the river before they will hold slop. While it is hardly that dry, yet this may serve to keep in mind the fact that pigs should have more liberal rations of slop or other feed now that pastures are shortened by the drought -Europeans are enormous consum ers of pork-when they can get it, as they easily can in this country. The European population of this country is increasing rapidly. The profit of Irais ing hogs depends largely upon the number of consumers. These facts, put together properly indicate that hog raising will continue to be a profit able recreation for progressive farmers. -To raise good horses and keep them looking well and in good life we must not work the life out of them. es pecially not load them too heavy. That is what makes old horses out of too many colts. Beeause they are willing and walk right off we for get and put on a heavy load.
