Any man or woman who will take care of
health and take the right remedies for ill
health, may live to a ripe old age. When
a man feels out of sorts, when he gets np
in the morning tired out after a restless
night, and goes home in the evening com
pletely knocked out with his day's work,
'without appetite or ambition, he is a sick
man. If he does not take the right remedy
lie will soon be in the grasp of consump

other serious malady, i
A man in this condition should at once
jresort to Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis
covery. It is the best of all medicines for
hard-working men and women. It makes
the appetite keen and hearty. It gives
sound and refreshing sleep. It tones and
strengthens the whole system. It invigor
ates the heart and nerves. It makes diges
tion perfect, the liver active and the blood
pure. It cures 98 per cent, of all cases of
consumption. It strengthens weak lungs,
and cures bronchitis, spitting of blood and
obstinate coughs. It is the great blood
maker and flesh-builder. It does not make
flabby flesh like cod liver oil, but firm,
healthy, muscular tissue.' It does not make
corpulent people more corpulent. Thou
sands have testified to its marvelous merits.

The breeders of good horses expect

Do not turn the cattle onto the

better to feed them for some days
longer in the stable.
A new use for corn, it is claimed,
has been discovered which will, if true,
greatly increase the consumption of
this grain. By a process of vulcaniz
ing the oil of corn the chemists say
that a product superior to that of the
South American rubber tree resul ts,
more resilient and lasting than the
latter. The corn plant can certainly
be stretched to meet many purposes,
The farmer who feeds his pigs all
corn should remember how quickly
he tires of one kind of food, tie
should further remember that the di
gestive organs of the pig are mo're
similar to his own than . those of any
other animal. If he will appreciate
this and feed the pigs something as
he feeds himself, he will get rewarded
with many grunts of satisfaction and
more money in his pocket.
The effect of good breeding will
show up more quickly in swine than
. in anyjother kind of live stock. Hence
the farmer can better afford to pay for
good brood sows and a pure-bred boar

to the market value of the offspring

In the New York markets the white
egg commands the highest price. In
Boston the Brown egg sells the best,
and yet the color of the shell has
nothing to do with the inside! Neith
er has the breed anything to do with
the richness of tbe inside, but the food
consumed has a great deal to do with
it. Feed onions to the fowls and the
eggs will taste of them. Any kind of
filth that the hens may eat will have
an influence on the ""contents of the
Every swine breeder should know
that a sow costive at farrowing time
is likely to . make trouble of . various
kinds. Almost invariable it is costive
saws that eat their pigs. This trouble
torments them so much at that time
that they are ready to eat almost any-

be in' reach. A pound of linseed
meal a day with her other food for
month or more before farrowing will
obviate this difficulty. If one cannot
get this meal, or whole flaxseed
boil into jelly to feed her, he can,
least, feed wheat brand enough to
accomplish the purpose. Also give
her salt and ashes, and charred corn
Wherever it is intended to let the
seeding He more than two years be
fore plowing, some grass seed should
always be sown with clover. In fact
we think some grass seed ought to be
sown anyway, as failure to get
seeding somewhere else may make
necessary to keep the field in grass
a year longer than is intended. The
only question is, what grass seed shall
be sown? Timothy is the universal
standby. But it is not ready to cut
when the clover is, and it also runs
out after a few years, unless annually
top dressed. . Orchard grass is more
permanent, but it requires three or
four years to fully cover the surface
If clover and timothy" and orchard
grass are sown together, they will cov
er the land in the same alternation we
have named. -American Cultivator.
There is no question that there is
going to be a shortage in the supply
of horses for a few years to come
There has hardly been any colts rais
ed since 1894, and we have notibegun
to feel the effect of these short crops
of colts as we will in a few years or
more. We believe the best quality of
horses in one or two years will be as
high as they ever were. There is a
great export demand upon us, and it
is increasing every day as business
increases and it will not be long be
fore this class of horses will be ex
tremely high. The horse -business
has a grand future, and there never
was a time when it offered so great
inducements for breeding and raising
as at the present time.. The scarcity
of good horses and the strong demand,
both foreign and domestic, surely
mean high prices and a stronger de
mand than was ever known before.
Deafness Cannot Be Cured
By local applications, as Jhey cannot
reach the diseased portion the ear.
There is only one way to cure deaf
ness, and that is by constitutional
remedies. Deafness is caused by an
inflamed condition of the mucous lin
ing of the eustachian tube. When this
tube gets inflamed you have a rumb
ling sound or imperfect hearing, and
when it is entirely closed deafness is
the result, and unless the inflammation
can be taken out and this tube restor
ed to its normal condition, hearing
will be destroyed forever; nine cases
out of ten "are caused by catarrh, which
is nothing but an inflamed condition of
the mucous surfaces.
We will give $100 for any case of
deafness (caused by catarrh) than can
not be cured by HalPs Catarrh Cure.

A contemporary gives the following
advice to its fair readers: "For a
man's birth, look to his linen and
finger nails, and observe the inflec
tions of his voice. For his tastes,
study the color of his ties, the pattern
and hang of his trousers, his friends
and his rings if any For his pro
pensities, walk round and look care
fully at the back of his head. A sym
metrical cerrebellum, with well trim
med hair, is an indication of self-control
and energy. If you want a suc
cessful man, see that he has a neat
foot; he will move quicker, get over
obstacles faster, than a man who falls
over his own toes and trips up other
folks with 'em, too. For his breed
ing, talk sentiment to him when he is
starving and ask him to carry a band
box down the public street when you
have just had a row. v To test his
temper, tell him nose is just a little on
one side and you don't like the way
his hair grows. There are other
ways which will suggest themselves
naturally to a bright woman. "

Coral is Coming.
Coral is coming into favor again.
The pale pink coral is especially
liked as a' beading for the low, oval"
shaped combs that ate now displacing
the high-back comb in favor.
A unique comb, wider than it is
high, of amber tortoise shell, has a
heading an inch wide, formed of diamond-shaped
medallions of pale pink
Another shows the coral interwoven
with a delicate lacework of the amber
shell. In other ornaments shaded
coral is used as a mosaic work, set
down into the shell facing.
Belts are shown made of tortoise
shell, in the dark variety, and an inch
or more in width, having the clasp
fastening made entirely of coral.
The tortoise shell panels thus
manipulated are laid on some elastic
substance, and the quality of coral
used in the buckle is rare enough to
be worthy of the unique combination.
The lighter tints of coral combine
best with the amber shell. It is in
troduced sometimes in the inexpensive
silver gilt appointments, and again in
the handsome dead gold ornaments of
There is no commodity used by
jewelers that differs more in price and
grade than coral. It can be had very
cheap, not only in cost, but appear
ance; and, then again, only a small
trimming of it causes the price of the
article to go into the hundreds.
The vivid red coral is usually placed
in conjunction with ebony, onyx and
other dark, richly-tinted surfaces that
display it to advantage, while the pale
pink is used with delicate enameling
and with backgrounds light in color.-

Are You Superstitious?
An English authority is resp6nsible
for the assertion that a man's destiny
depends upon the month of his birth.
A man born in January will be a
hard worker, a lover of good wine, a
fine singer and a great manager. A
woman born in that month will be af
fable, will have domestic tastes and
will be capable of great endurance.
A man born in February will love
money much, but women more. He
will be stingy at home, but prodigal
abroad. The woman will be an affec
tionate wife and a good mother.
The man born in March will be
handsome, honest and prudent; yet
he will die poor. The woman will be
tall and stout and witty.
The man born in April will not
necessarily be a fool, even if his birth
day is the day after March 31st. The
woman will be a chatterbox and will
have advanced ideas. She will be a
leading member of the shrieking sister
hood. The man born in May will be ami
able and will make his life partner
happy. The woman will equal him in
amiability and all other desirable
The man born in June will be of
small stature and very fond of women
and children. The woman will be
flighty and a high lfver, but will , re

The man born in July will be of
military tastes, a trifle pompous, but a
good fellow withal. The woman will
pout and be handsome.
The man born in August will be
ambitious and courageous. The wo
man will be what Americans call
capable. She will be equal to run
ning a farm or editing a newspaper.
The man born in September will be
strong and wise; he will make few
mistakes and live and die rich. . The

that love has played smash with her
prospects, and when you behold a
damsel with eyes like those of a dam
aged mackerel, whose nose is blue at
the tip and sharp-pointed from much
weeping, sniffling around the house in
an old dress and makes a man feel
like fleeing to the mountains, you can
salt it down for a certainty that she
wants to marry a man too worthless to
make a good fish bait. Some night
when least expected, she will skip out
by the light of the moon to elope
with the scalawag, leaving more love
in the home ffora which she steals
away than she will ever find in his
bosom, and from that time on she is
his to command under all circum stan

horse or goes to congress, and so
long as he treats her half white, noth
ing but the discovery that he has gone
mashed on some other woman can
change her feeling towards him.
