-A remedy which invariably acts as a uter

He continues " in Uelonias we have a medica
ment which more fully answers the above
purposes than any otlier drvg toith which I am

culiar to women It Is seldom that a case Is
so*.!] which does not present some indication

Cincinnati, says of Golden Seal root:
"In relation to its general effects on the
6ysum. then to no medicine in u»e about which
Viere i« such general unanimity of opinion. It
is unirernally regarded as the tonic useful in
all debilitated states."
Prof. Bartholow, M. D., of Jefferson
Medical College, says of Golden Seal :
"Valuable in uterine hemorrhage, menor
rha?ia (flooding) and congestive dysmecor

The Good Old Farm,
Hold Fast To It
If you own a farm hold it in your
possession as long as you live.
If you have a mortgage on it do
not yield to temporary discourage
ments and sell out; pay off the mort
gage and be free. This you can do.
Any tract of productive agricultural
land will pay for itself more than once
in a decade of good times.
A farm that has grown old in one
family becomes the realm of sacred,
happy memories; it nourishes the
spirit of the past, inspires with
wholesome purpose and makes a
subtle plea for kindly, loving care.
Think of the farm as a living thing,
as sensitive to abuse, as appreciative
ot zealous management, as the bene
factor of your ancestors, yourself and
There is good io everything, but
the farm is the habitat of earth's
most coveted bounties, for from it
comes all that is essential to mankind.
Sentimental love for the old farm,
whereon our childhood days were
spent, is praiseworthy; cherish it,
keep it ever alive. That which we
love is capable of giving us the great
est pleasure and satisfaction.
Blessed is that man who at the end
of his earthly journey in calm, happy
resignation can say, "On this old
farm I was born; on this kind, gen
erous old homestead I shall close my
eyes in eternal sleep."
Although this is the greedy age of
cold commerce, there lurks within
every healthy man a leavening force
which for want of a better name we
call sentiment. He who is without
sentiment is deficient in all other no
ble attributes. Life is empty, devoid
of a world-power, if it be without sen
timent. A man with sentiment will
love the old farm and hold fast to it,
for it is good.—'"Farm and Stock,"

FUNHT STORIES. '
Some Merely a Trifle Lest Sad Than
Other*, That Is All.
Seriously speaking, a funny story
is no laughing matter. Humor is
one of the world's great institutions,
a thing to be approached with rev
erence akin to awe, as something
cold as the pole, imperishable as the
pyramids and often a great deal
more ancient. If we abase ourselves
before ancient and holy things, can
we afford to laugh at the capers of
the convict chimpanzee, who in
point of ancestry antedates the Pe
ter Lelys and Joshua Reynoldses of
our baronial halls ?
Funny stories, furthermore, are
usually based on something which
is not funny at all. Their points,
in fact, often depend solely upon
an unsympathetic view of some
great human misfortune. What is
more pathetic to a sane mind than
a funeral or a harelip or a divorce
or a mother-in-law? Yet, shades of
Rameses, how useful they have be
come in vaudeville!
I don't think that there are any
really side splitting stories in the
world. Some are merely a trifle less
sad than others; that is.all. How
admirable is the calm philosophy of
the man who refused to ride with
his mother-in-law at his wife's fu
neral "because," as he explained, "it
would spoil the day's pleasures for
me!" And yet there are persons so
careless as to regard this as mere
And so the endless procession of
anecdotes files by, none of them, as
I have said, really f i.nny, but some
a little less sad than the others. In
the jocund days of heraldic eld,
when the woods were teeming with
parfit gentil knights and the sense
of humor was less particular than
nowadays, every king had a jester
hired by the week, and the clown
was furnished with a certain appli
ance which made all his jokes imme
diately appreciated. What, prithee ?
Nothing more than a bladder on a
stick. When the jester came to the
point of the joke he popped the
bladder smartly on the floor. That
was a signal, "All laugh!" So the
uproar was deafening. Those were
golden days to live in!— Wallace Ir
win in Success Magazine.
Ancient Use of Concrete.
The use of concrete masonry prob
ably begins with* the Romans, who
employed it in road building and
foundation work. Coming down
from the time of ths Romans, the
ancient city of Ciudad Rodrigo hag
walls existing at the present day in
which are buried large bowlders of
stone. These walls, are in a good
state of preservation at the present
time—in fact, so much so that they
still bear the prints of the boards
which made up the forms which
held the concrete in its semiliquid
state at the time it was put in. It
is an interesting matter to note that
the modern practice of putting large
masses of stone in concrete masonry
follows exactly the scheme used in
building these ancient walls of Ciu
dad Rodrigo. This method not only
reduces the cost of the resulting
fabric, but Hso makes it stronger.— I

Curran and the Tailors. **
Curran, the famous orator ftpd
wit, never hesitated to sacrifice nis
friends for the sake of a joke. On
one occasion the Merchant Tailorf
guild of Dublin gave a banquet, to
which he was invited —in fact, he
was the guest of honor. He kept
his hosts amused all evening. There
were just eighteen of his entertain
ers, and when Curran took his leave
he waited till he reached the door,
then with a smile and a bow said,
"And now, gentlemen, I have the
honor of saving good night to both
of you." He made his escape before
the eighteen tailors realized the
joke, and then it was too late to
