When the Secretary of the Navy recently demanded more battleships, Congress con sidered his recommendations favorably, and authorized the construction of several power ful warships. Protection is what our se ports require, and fortifications will not adu quately supply this.

Try it. Within the lastfive years 480,000 stands of rifles have been exported from Ger many to China. Sarah Grand says that the "average man" is the hope of the nation; but here comes a' Chicago pulpiteer, the Rev. Johnson Henderson, with the re marl: that he is the "most uninterest ing mortal on earth." "His very work. by reason of its commonplace charac ter, is a dead weight and a drudgery. The great curse of society to-day is the sinking into helplessness and inactivity of the average man." Yet he knows more and accomplishes more than many of his forefathers who were ac counted great men in their time. The standard of achievement is higher now days. num m lu n m n a l lnmi n i 'i New England Women Have an Abiding Faith in Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. After yeas of struggle to attain and merit public confidence, with a itrm and steadfast belief that some day others would recognize in us the truth, good faith, and honesty of purpose which we know we possess, what a genu lae satisfaction it is to succeed, and to realize the uplifting influence of the merited confidence of a vast army of our fellow beings. Thus stands the Pinkham name in New England, and all over America, and nowhere is the faith in Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound greater than in New En'land. its home. Merit. and merit alone, can rain this. ORGANIC INFLAMMATION. DsIAs MEs. PINKHAM :'- I was troubled very badly with inflamma tion of the bladder, was sick in bed with it. I had two doctors, but they did me no good. A friend gave me Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com pound, and it helped me. I have now taken three bottles of it, and I am entirely cured. It is a God-send to any woman, and I would recommend it to any one suffering as I was. I think, If most of the women would take more of your medicine instead of gin'g to the doctors, they would be better off. The Compound has also cured my husband of kidney trouble." Mas. MABEL Ooonrx, Box 160. Mechanic Falls, Maine. NERVOUS PROSTRATION. "For two years I suffered from nervous prostration, the result of female.weakness. I had leucorrhoea very badly, and at time of menstrua tion would be obliged to go to bed. Also suffered with headaches, pain across back, and in lower part of abdomen. I was so discouraged. I had read of Lydia E. Pinkham's Com pound, and concluded to give it a trial. I wrote to Mrs. Pinkham, and received a very nice letter in return. I began at once the use of her Vegetable Com pound and Blood Purifier, and am now ueeling splendid.. I have no more pain at monthly periods, can do my own work, and have gained ten pounds. I would not be without your Vegetable Compound. It is a splendid medicine. I am verythankful for what ithas done for me.' -Mas. J. W. J., 76 Carolina Ave., Jamaica Plain, Mass. PAINFUL PERIODS. "I cannot help but feel that it is my duty to do something in regard to recommending your wonderful medi cine. I must say it is the grandest medicine on earth. and have advised a great many if fering with female troubles to take it. I tell people I wish I. could go on the platform and lec ture on it. H. . " My trouble was painful menstru- ation. The suffering I endured pen cannot describe. I was treated by one of our most prominent physicians here for five months, and found myself getting worse instead of better. At the end of the fifth month he told me he had done all he could for me, and that I had better go to the hospital. " My sister advised me to try your Vegetable Compound, as it cured her of backache. I did so, and took it faithfully, and am now cured of my trouble, and in perfect health, many thanks to your medicine. I cannot praise it enough, and would recom mend it to all who suffer from any female weakness."- Mhs. H. S.

A Modest Clas Who Do Not Advertlie Their Business. Speaking of stockbrokers in London the Daily Mail says they have little in common but a desire to avoid public. ity. The individual member must not advertise his business, and he shrinks from advertising himself. The New York'broker rejoices tosee his name in print, but the London broker, before vouchsafing the barest information to a newspaper reporter, insists upon s promise that his name shall not be mentioned. This modesty, however, only holds good so far as the stopk ex change is concerned, and it is doubt less due largely to that mysterious fear of the autocratic committee, which only finds parallel in the schoolboy's awe of his master, or in a Russian ed itor's deference to the censor. He likes to see himself mentioned it so ciety paragraphs-he is even suspected of occasionally seeking this- and he enjoys the publicity that comes from sport, speechmaking, subscription lists and prospectuses. He used to be con tent with a small business and regard ed himself as well off with an income which now some of his clerks would despise. He did his business on con. servative lines; he liked to stick to in. vestors, and by cold-watering speculae tore-especially speculators in a small way-he did much to encourage the bucketshop, with its tapes, its covers its knavery and its false hopes. All that is now changed. Stockbrokers have more than doubled their number and competition has brought dows their commissions. They encourage their clients to speculate by all legiti. mate means, and they frankly confess that they cannot live by investment alone.

Have nothing for show, writes Julia Ward Howe, in Good Housekeeping. Let your rooms look as If they were lived in. Provide convenient cases for your books, comfortable chairs to sit in, tables or desks at which one can write with comfort, pleasant pictures or engravings to look at. Do not envy the melancholy splendor of superflu ous apartments, rarely opened, and full of ghostly shadows. The time and money expended in the care of these possessions are out of all propor tion to any pleasure that can be de 'ived from them. How to Treat an Umbrella. When you come in out of the rain don't plump your nice umbrella ferrule down into the umbrella stand, unless you want to ruin it. That lets the water and the tiny specks of "grit" run down into the lining under the iron ring that secures the ribs, and it stays there, making the silk tender, and rotting it. Neither should you leave the umbrella open to dry, as that stretches the silk and makes it stiff, and it will soon split. Shake it well, then close it, and stand it, handle down, where the water will run off. Never set an umbrella or parasol away tightly folded; it will split out just as soon again. Leave -the folds to lie loosely.-New York Mail and Express. The Houseworker's Hands. "Housework is rather hard on the hands, but there are some precautions which, if taken, will add greatly to the comfort of the worker and the appear ance of the hands," writes Maria Par loa, in the Ladies' Home Journal. "Among the things which rough'en and blacken the hands the most important are dust, soap, fruit, vegetables and neglect to properly dry the hands. Wash all vegetables before. paring. When the hands are stained by fruit or vegetables be sure to remove the stains before the hands come in con tact with soap or soapy water. Re move the stains with an acid, such as lemon, vinegar or sour milk, then wash in clear water. When using soap and water for any purpose be sure to rinse off all the soap before wiping the hands. Always wipe the hanus per fectly dry. Do not change soaps if you can avoid it, and always use a good soap. When sweeping and dusting wear loose-fitting gloves. Have a pair of rubber glovqeaor use when it is necessary to have the hands in water a great deal. Grease spoils rubber, therefore the gloves must be washed perfectly clean and smooth after dish washing or any other work that rough. ens them. With a little practice one can wash dishes as well and as quick ly with a dish-mop aswith a cloth and the hands. There should be two mops, one for the tableware and one for the cooking-dishes. For washing floors have a self-wringing mop. To soften and whiten the hands use some sort of cream on them at night, then powder them with cornstarch and put them in loose gloves kept for this purpose.'" RE C]PES :.'t Parsley Sauce-Chop a handful of parsley and mix it in a stewpan with two ounces of butter, two ounces of flour, a saltspoonful of salt, dusting of pepper, half a pint of water and a ta. blespoonful of vinegar. Stir until it boils, then pour over the fish and send to table. Wheat Fritters with Orange Honey Take three eggs, one and one-half cup fuls of sweet milk, three teaspoonfuls of baking powder, one saltspoonful of salt and flour enough to make it stiff, thicker than batter cakes. Drop into hot lard and fry like doughnuts. Serve hot. Ginger Drop Cakes-Three eggs, one cup butter, one of molasses (New Or leans) and brown sugar, one teaspoon ful ginger, one tablespoonful soda dis solved in one cup of boiling water, five cups imsifted flour, a little salt. Drop by dessert spoonfuls on buttered paper about three inches apart. A Dainty Salad-One-half pint of crab meat, two heads of celery, two hard-boiled eggs minced very fine, one tomato scalded and cut in slices, laid in a border of shaved lettuce with the crab meat, celery and hard-boiled eggs in the centre. Garnish with capers and season with French dressing. Moulded Halibut and Peas--Chop one pound of raw halibut very fine, add to this yolk of two eggs, one tea spoonful salt, dash paprika, soften one teaspoonful cornstarch with a little milk, adding enough more milk to make two-thirds cupful, then stir Into the fish, and lastly fold in one-third cupful double cream beaten stiff, but ter individual moulds, placing a circle of peas about-bottoms, fill two-thirds full of fish mixtures and steam thirty minutes, or until firm in centre, un mould on hot plates, sunrround with creamen peas. - .Work.

The coat, which was exhibited in court, is an interesting specimen of Indian handiwork, and a striking commentary on the character of old Geronimo. It is festooned with forty or fifty long tufts of hair, which are believed to have been taken from the heads of the many white women whom the old chief had killed. Ger onimo must have had a particular dis like for women with dark brown hair, or a penchant for that kind of decora tion for his coat, for, with one excep tion, all the hair is of that color. The exeeption is a very light brown, which might at one time have been red. All the hair is long. It is attached in hit or-miss fashion to all parts of the coat's exterior, and hangs down the back so thick as to almost conceal the' highly colored painted figures which constltute the rest of its ornamenta tion. As a curio the coat was worth about $500. White and lampblack make' lead color, This Will Interest Many. To q introduce the famous blood par iter, B. B. 3.
