SORES AMD ULCERS. 8ores and Ulcers never become chronic unless tbe blood is in poor condition —is sluggish, weak and unable to throw of! the poisons that accumulate in it. The system must be relieved of the unhealthy matter through the sore, and great danger to life would follow should it heal before the blood has been made pure and healthy and all impurities eliminated from the sys tem. S.S.S. begins the cure by first cleans ing and invigorating the blood, building up the general health and removing from III* Ä a oohstaêêt dram êffetemaUer. upon the system.

The Cost of a World Power. ( 'onerr jivinirslon. the Mise I democratic member of the 11 'Committee on Appropriations, has issued a statement comparing thcap propriations of the recent Congress with that of the Congress that dieil March 4. 1K97. The Fifty-sixth Congress appropriated $1.440,1 Congressman Cannon for' the republicans points out that this! is a decrease of $128,000,00(1 from the appropriations made by the 1 Fifty-fifth Congress, which was the! immediate predecessor of the re cent one. I bit Congressman Livingston maintains that it is better to make thecomparison with the Fifty-fourth Congress, that being the last to make appropriations for the sup port of the government prior to the J war with Spain. J Mr. Livingston shows that thej appropriations made bv the Fiftv-1 sixth ( 'ongressexceedthose made by the Fifly-fourth< 'ongress in the sum of $395,472,272.08. flecalls atten tion to the fact that nearly all this increase was due to appropriations . [ for the support of the military es tablishments. For each of the two years prior to the Spanish-American j war, the tegular army cost $23,000, 000. Since then, however, it has increased to $115,000,000 per year.

Hey wood' s well struck a heavy tlow of gas to-night and it caught fire from a torch in the hands of workmen. The fiâmes shot in the air high above the der rick and continues to burn. The derrick was destroyed and all the machinery greatly damaged. No one was injured. No attempt was made to extinguish the fire. This well is about 150 feet from the Kamill well, which developed the same gas feature a few days ago. Water, mud and rock nre shooting out of the pipe sixty feet high and tbe contact with the fiâmes makes a cloud of steaiu. At 4::I0 o'clock this afternoon another gusher was opend up in the Beaumont field in Gnffey's No. 2. on Gladys city property. The well bad been closed down several days awaiting the arrival of a cable drill to penetrate the oil stream. As in the case of the Sharp well, when the water was baled out before let ting down the drill, oil broke through and spouted up to the top of the derrick. The well was prompt ly shut off by a gate valve prepared before hand, and the capacity can not be estimated as yet, bnt it is considered to have the same flow struck in other wells. The Sharp well, which hnd about the same ex perience. has not panned on: so well. It spurted a great deal of mud and water and less oil.

If the wolrd is to advance, if great strides in civilization are to be taken, if mankind's sufferings are to be alleviated and comforts multiplied, a great amount of labor must be performed. Those who perform this labor are the real benefactors of the race. Boys ought to be taught to do everything better than their fathers could do it, and to pride theinselvers in the achievement of better things. (îirls ought to be taught to cook, and sew, and do everything necessary to make a first-class home, as well as to read Latin and Greek, and master calculus. Nothing adds more to the security, happiness, and pros perity of a true home thau a good kitchen economically and scientifi cally administered. Teach the girls the chemistry of cooking, the philo sophy of buying, the science of food and health, and the wifely aud motherly dignity and honor that WOMAN m uke a oojoate - MitstOAL imsnwmemr In good condition she is sweet and lovable, and sings life's song on a joyful harmonious string.

Merit of Public Schools. Many complaints arc being made against the public school system of education. Some say there is a lack of thoroughness in the work ; others say that the pupils are coarse, un manly, ill-behaved. Considering the crowded condition of the schools, the number of subjects as signed each teacher, the time al lotted each subject, and the inferior home training that most of the pupils receive, the public schools accomplish more in developing the good, the true, and the beautiful in the character of the boys and girls under their control than any other agency. The development of the mind is a very complex process, aud he who undertakes to assist in directing its growth lias a great task to perform. The child since its birth has been constantly gleaning infor mation of a varied kind ; the devel opment of its mind has been very rapid. Whe he enters school he brings with him certain fixed habits, and a certain amount of knowlege. Unless the teacher understands the nature of mind ; can to some extent determine how far and in what di rection development has already been made ; what tendencies or characteristics must be curbed, and what encouraged ; what the environ ments are in the home and how best to modify them to suit the con ditions of the growing mind ; nnleus he understands subject matter so well that he knows just what, and how much, and when to have his pupils study in order to produce the desired developments, he will not succeed.— Nannie Crawford.
