Woman A filleted fop Years ljr Strange Spells of Kumbnen and Weakness, Kecovcrs I'erfeot Health. When she was fonrteen years old, Mrs, Ida L. Brown had St. Vitus' dance. She liually got over the most noticeable features of the strange ailment, but was still troubled by very uncomfortable sen sations, which she recently described as follows: Ouehand, half of my face, and half of my tongue would get cold and numb. These feelings would come on, last for about ten minutes, and then go away, several times a day. Besides I would have palpitation of the heart, and my strength would get so low that I could hardly breathe. As time went on these spells kept coming oftener and growing worse. The numbness would sometimes extend over half my body." "How did you get rid of them?" "It seemed for along time as if I never could get rid of them. It was not until about six years ago that I found a remedy that had virtue enough in it to reach my case. That was Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People, and they have since en tirely cured me." Did it take long to effect a cure "No 1 I hadn't taken the whole of the first box before I saw a great improve ment. So I kept on using them, growing better all the time,until I had taken eight boxes and then I was perfectly well, and I have remained in good health ever •iiice with one exception." "What was that?" Oh that was when I had the grip. I was in bed, under the doctor's care, for two weeks. When I got up I had dreadful attacks of dizziness. I had to grasp hold of something or I would fall right down. I was just miserable, and when I saw the doctor was not helping me, I began to take Dr. Williams' Pink Pills again. In a short time they cured me of that trouble too, and I have never bad any dizzy spells since." Mrs. Brown lives at No. 1705 DeWitt itreet, Mat toon, Illinois. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are without an equal for the rapid and thorough cure of nervous pros tration. They expel the poison left in the system by such diseases as grip and are the best of tonics in all cases of weak ness. They are sold by every druggist. Are You Bilious If so, you will have more or less of the following SYMPTOMS Not nnfreqnently the complexion be comes pale and sallow, there may be, frequent attacks of bilious or sick head ache, bitter taste in the month, tongue coated white or covered with a brown fur, unnatural, dry, harsh, or .scaly condition of the skua, or branny erup tions and pimples. There is likely to be "backache," with tired feelings, lassitude and a sense of debility. There is depression of spirits with a decided tendency to be discouraged and de spondent. There is loss or irregularity oi appetite, uneasiness in region df the stomach, oppression, sometimes sour stomach, "heart-burn," nausea and water-brash," flatulency, and acrid eructations the bowels become irregu lar, usually constipated, and occasion ally subject to diarrhea, attended with ooUcky piains. The foregoing symp toms are not all present in any one ease, nor are any two cases alike in •very respect.

"The silk hat," said the manager of a fashionable hat store, "has about run its course for day wear. Only elderly men, and comparatively few of them, wear It in the day time. "Fifteen years ago we often sold more silk hats in a day than we now sell in two weeks. Young men wore them both days and evenings. You could see processions of silk hats on Broadway, and all the .downtown streets. "But the silk hat will return. Its passing is merely a whim of fashion. It is the most dressy hat a man can wear, and also the most economical. A good silk hat will stand more wear and tear than three derbys or fedoras. It can be ironed to look like new, no matter what has happened to it. "Most of our customers are well-to do, but- lots of them in the old days wore silk hats for economy's sake. A few do yet, for that matter, but they are men past middle life."—New York Sun. WHOLLY UNOBJECTIONABLE. Only "Jesuses and Venuses" in School Art Gallery. Mrs. Alva Adams, wife of the gov ernor of Colorado, has been much in terested in the work of the women's clubs of that state. She tells of an en tertainment given by one such club to raise money to bujr pictures for a cer tain school house. The pictures wero line prints, photographs and other high-grade reproductions of classic art. A certain pupil of the school took a ticket &ome to his father and solicited its purchase, explaining the object. "Pictures?" said the father. "What kind of pictures do they put up?" "Oh. just of Jesuses and Venuses,' said the boy.—New York Press. Quite Prepared. The proprietor of a large office build ing who had a room for his own use in one of the upper stories was sur prised one morninfe by the entrance of a man with a valise. "Don't you want something, sir," be* gan the caller, "in the way of a new and improved outfit for marking hand' kerchiefs, under garments and—" "No, I don't," interrupted the pro prietor. "How did you get up here? We don't allow peddlers or canvassers in this building." '"You don't?" "That's what I said." "I saw no sign to that effect." "Well, you'll see one the next time you come. I shall have one put up." "In that case," rejoined the man, opening his valise with alacrity, "you will need one of these." Here he displayed a neatly painted card over a foot long and nearly as wide, with this inscription in large let ters "No Peddlers or Canvassers Allowed in This Building on Any Pretext Whatever." In recognition _of his caller's clever ness, genial humor ond business fore thought, the owner of the building not only bought the card, but invested in one of the marking outfits. Giving the Papers Credit. Senator Money tells a story of the tribute a Mississippi minister recently paid to the press.

At a meeting of the Western Guern sey Breeders' Association, M. L. Welles said: Let us start at the very beginning At the time the cow is due to calve she should be placed in a clean, dry, well bedded box stall where the calf can be kept comfortable. After the calf is born it should be left with the cow twenty-four or thirty-six hours, as may seem best, after which it should be separated from its mother arid kept in a stall by itself for a time. Twelve hours after separation from its mother it should be offered milk from a pqil, but if the calf re fuses to drink, hold your temper, and let it go for twelve hours more, and by this time the calf will, as a rule, be glad to drink. Do not give it your hand to suck unless you have to as a last resort. At first four and one half pounds of new milk fresh from the cow, with one and one-half pounds of warm water additional, will make a good feed for the average sized Guernsey calf. Watch your calf closely at all times to see that its bowels are ail right. If it begins to scour reduce the amount of' milk at once and replace it with warm water, so that you will have about six pounds of liquid *or the calf at each meal. I would say right here if your calves have scours clean the stalls daily and give plenty of dry bedding at all times. Calf stalls should be cleaned at least every other day even if well. At the age of two weeks there should be placed within their reach some fine hay that they can eat at will. The hay should be put in fresh at least every other day up to the age of five weeks, after which time they should have fresh hay daily, and not have a chance to muss over more than they need. At the age of four weeks I would advise putting some whole oats where they can eat them at will. They will soon learn to make way with a lot of them, and I know of no better way to dispose of your oats. We will imagine the calf is now six weeks old and doing finely, so we will reduce the amount of new milk one pound, and add the same amount of skim millc. We will continue to change gradually from new milk to skim milk until the calf is eight weeks old, when he will be on skim milk with some kind of meal in it, such as old process oil meal, to help make a complete food. We will now put the calves together up to the number of ten or twelve, and have stanchions to put them in at feeding time, so that they will be unable to suck one an other, and it is also handy to feed them milk and grain after this age in stanchions. The calves should now have al the good, clean water they want once a day. In sur»mer they should be offered water sooner than at age of eight weeks. The grain ration will not consist of one and one-half pounds oats and a little bran. They should be fed hay twice daily after the age of two and one-half months, and they should have free access to salt. You will find they will eat a lot of it if placed where they can eat it when ever they want it. I think it very important they should be turned out in the sunshine for at least two or three hours every pleasant day, summer or winter, if the temperature is not lower than 10 above zero and they are over two weeks old. They enjoy it, and to wan der from the subject a little I will say I enjoy watching them run about the barn yard with their heads up in the air. Dwarf Tomatoes. Years ago my wife and I thought that the dwarf tomato was not as productive or profitable as the bushy, sprawling kinds. Later experience has given us several reasons to re verse our opinion. We do not now grgw any of the bushy varieties that go so much to vine. Storms of wind and rain will twist about the vines and expose the fruit to sun-scald and rot from con tact with the soil in the bush kinds, where the dwarf varieties are not at all affected. Heavily manured or ex cessively rich land cannot be success fully cropped to the large growing plants, the tendency being a rank growth of vine and light setting of fruit or at least that ripening of fruit is prevented by dense foliage excluding the sun's rays, necessary to perfect and mature ripening. The Dwarf Champion, or others of that type, may, on the contrary, be plant ed in a compost heap without such troubles. I now plant these dwarfs on very fertile soil and makes a liberal appli cation of rich fertilizer directly to the hill where plant is set. Our experience has been that the richer we had the soil the stronger and larger the main stall: grew, which is true also pf lat erals and foliage. The fruit yield we find Is increased in proportion to the supply of available plant food as well, also, the size, quality and color ing of the fruit. We set the plants In rows 3% to 4 feet apart and the plants 2 to 2% feet in the i-ow. The best cul tivation has always paid well horse tools that loosen the earth deeply when plants are first set, a'heavy hill ing up when fruit has fully set and then a dust mulch to destroy weeds and retain moisture, afterward. other farden seeds set a it aw w' ''•'V/f^i the very best stock to be had, even at a higher price than the ordinary,—it will repay you a hundred fold at har vest time. Plant the seed in cigar or other shallow boxes about the middle of February and place in southern, sunny window in a room constantly warm. Set them outside in the sun to harden off when weather permits.— Henry E. Randolph, Miami Co., Ohio. The General Use of Wind Mills. Although there will always neces sarily be more or less hand pumps in Use. for various purposes, the age of pumping the country water supply by hand is passing has passed, as surely as has the day of the cradle and the scythe In the harvest fields. It is in the line of reason and the advancement of the times that this should be so. Why should farmers burn up the vital energies of their bodies, that can so advantageously be economized for other manual labor, when the wind is ready to pump the water for stock and homes, and at no expense. A good, serviceable wind mill can be purchased and put up so cheaply nowadays that it seems not so much a matter as to whether or not farmers can afford to have one, or more, on their farms, as to whether or not they can economically afford to do without them. This especially when we consider that merely as time savers they will very soon repay their original costs. The prairies are studded with these muscle-saving water elevators guide posts they are to well-equipped and prosperous farmsteads, and, judging from appearances, the majority are in this class. Not only on the plains, but from coast to coast ^ver all the states they are In. evidence, monu ments of a wise economy. However, the useful work of pumping water is not, by any means, the only work these engines of the wind are made to perform. Both east and west you may find them sawing wood, grinding feed, churning, running cutting boxes, root cutters, washing machines, grindstones and various' other light machinery about the farm. The writer recalls one farm of moderate size in Ohio on which were in opera tion nine wind mills, placed to best advantage for providing water for all the buildings and for the stock in the yards and in the pasture fields. Nor was- this a farm run by wind, either, but by an Intelligence, directing and moving along modern, scientific, ap proved lines'that made it a success ful, profitable business proposition, Not all farms, as a matter of course, need nearly so many wind mills, but every farm needs at least one, and every farmer who does not have one does both himself and his hired help an injustice. Encourage the Country Boy. When some boy breaks a record at some game or feat of athletics a cheer ing cry goes up, there is a waving of flags, a flare of trumpets and glow ing eulogies are pronounced, while the click of the telegraph carries the glad news to the press of the world's end, and it is printed under great, bold headlines. So much for the medal bedecked, duck-suited youth of the col lege football team, and the field of sports. But what of those other boys, those manly lads with the clear eye, willowy muscles, but like iron withal, morals as clean as the air of a country morn ing, thought-free and unafraid those hardy, robust, sturdy fellows with the blue overalls, cotton jumper, cow-hide boots, with a slouch hat over a smil ing face, these, the developing blood and sinew, the mainstay and guard of our nation, the farmers' sons—what of them? These wide-awake, energetic farmers' boys are every day doing something of notable merit, of worth, of value in every calling, something that will make for the general good and betterment of the world at large but of them and his work the typists do not tell, nqr the world proclaim his reward. With the stamina born of health, hope and happy home life, and the de termination that scorns defeat he works along with no thought of a higher reward than a clean, whole some and happy life. It is to just such lads as these that the nation is indebted for the best, the highest and the greatest that she can proudly boast of in her history statesmen, philosophers and honest men. The re ward of the aggressive country boy may be slow to come, but if his life and training are worked along the right lines it is sure and substantial. The Tax on Oleo. It is said that the manufacturers of oleomargarine are determined to fight for a reduction of the tax on oleo fiom ten cents a. pound to three or at most four cents a pound! They propose to wage the fight on the score that Congress has a right to pass revenue laws only for the raising of revenue and that a tax so high that it is prohibitive prevents this. They assert that the smaller tax would raise more revenue. It is not likely, however, that Congress will take this view of the ease. New Toys. Inventors are looking out for the pleasure and profit of boys as well as men. One of the new things especially designed for them is a sled that re sembles a bicycle, in that it has a saddle and pedals wlUch are pushed down and out alternately. The pedals are shod with sharp teeth which bite into the ice. The forward movement of one pedal pulls the other backward and the sled advances with a speed proportionate to the energy expended by the rider.
