Read this one from Mrs. Waters: / Camden, N. J.—“ 1 was sick for two years with nervous spells, and my kidneys were affected. I had a doctor all the time and used a galvanic battery, but nothing did me any good. I was not able to go to bed, but spent my time on a couch or in a sleeping-chair, and soon became almost a skeleton. Finally my doctor went away for his health, and my husband heard of Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound and got me some. In two months I got relief and now I am like a new woman and am at my usual weight. I recommend your medicine to every one and so does my husband.”—Mrs. Tillib waters, 1135 Knight St., Camden, N.J.

HAIR CAME OUT IN HANDFULS Hughson, Cal. —“Last winter my hair began to fall out and later my Ncalp began to itch terribly and my hair was full of dandruff. There were pimples broke out on my scalp, espe cially around the edge of my hair. Sometimes I would wake up at night and lie awake an hour or so with the itching. My hair came out In hand fuls when I combed it. It was dry and lifeless and the dandruff was so thick It could be plainly seen. "I used several different kinds of Bhampoo and soap but It got worse all the time for five or six months. When I had lost about half of my hair I started using Cuticura Soap and Oint ment. In about six weeks my scalp stopped Itching and in two or three months my hair began to come in new. My head is clear of dandruff now and new hair Is coming in all the time." (Signed) Mrs. W. R.

Temperance Notes (Conducted by the National Woman's Christian Temperance Union.) OPENED HIS EYES. A young man entered .the barroom of a village tavern and called for a drink. “No,” said the landlord. "You have had too much already. You have had delirium tremens once, and I cannot sell you any more.” He stepped aside for two young men who entered, and the landlord waited upon them very politely. The other stood silent and sullen. When they had finished, he walked up to the landlord and addressed him as fol lows: “Six years ago. at their age, I stood where these young men are. I was a man with fair prospectß. Now, at the age of twenty-eight, 1 am a wreck, body and mind. You led me to drink. In this room I formed the habit that has been my ruin. Now sell me a few glasses, and your work will be done. 1 shall soon be out of the way; there Is no hope for me. They can be saved; they may be men again. Sell It to me, and let me die, and the world will be rid of me; but for heaven's sake sell no more to them.” The landlord listened, pale and trem bling. Setting down his decanter, he exclaimed: “God helping me, that Is the last drop I will sell to anyone.” And be kept bis word. A POTENT RACE POISON. Scientists are agreed that alcohol Is a potent race poison; It poisons the whole system, notably the reproduc tive organs and protoplasm. There fore we cannot have drinking without race-degeneration. If parents abstain their children are healthy, but If, later on, the parents take to drinking, the children are afflicted mentally and physically. Plato understood this when he deprecated drink for nursing mothers. If, In extreme cases, alcohol Is an extreme poison, moderate drink ing Is moderate poisoning. The medi cal profession contains pro-alcohollsts and antl-alcohollsts; but the policy of facing both ways Is weak, and be fore long, presumably, all medical men will be antl-alcohollsts. Let them preach the gospel that there Is NO USE FOR ALCOHOL IN HUMAN LIFE. Abstinence tends to true pa triotism, and the state ought to do preventive work as well as curative. —Dr. V. Rutherford. Zion College, London. CHOOSE YOUR BRIDGE. Remember, all who have fallen Into the dark river of Intemperance have fallen from Moderation bridge, none from the Tptal Abstlnance bridge. Re member, If there were no drunkards on earth today and moderate drinking should continue, there would be plenty of them tomorrow. Look once more at the procession headed by half a million drunkards dropping Into the tide, a million moderate drinkers, two million of occasional, fashionable drinkers, and behind them all the boys and young men of our land —and then, as you shall face the record in eternity, I call on you to choose, as a brother of humanity, a patriot, a Christian, on which bridge you will cross.—Frances E. Willard. WHY HE QUIT DRINKING. Indianapolis newspupers tell the Btory of why a certain attorney sud denly quit drinking. With great lib erality he patronized one saloonkeeper for a number of years. Recently the saloon man bought a house and lot and had another lawyer examine the abstract for him. The steady patron resented this and wanted to know why the saloonkeeper away from his own customer to give business to a man who never patronizes his or any other saloon. “When I have busi ness for an attorney," said the saloon keeper, “I want it .done by a sober lawyer.” This is why the attorney has quit drinking. HOW BREWERS MAKE MONEY. Hon. Frank S. Rogan, in an address, “The Fool Tax Payers,” delivered in Ottawa, 111., recently made the state ment that according to Information furnished him by a chemist in a Mil waukee brewery, the actual cost of making a barrel of beer which retails for about $28.00 Is but 72 cents, and that the cost of producing a gallon ol whisky which retails for $4, Is but 25 cents. not to be trusted. A man under the Influence of even small quantities of alcohol has no right to believe his senses; he cannot trust them to give him correct facts, and he cannot rely on his Judgment for the Interpretation of these facts.— Prof. G. Sims Woodhead, M. D., Uni versity of Cambridge, Eng. RUGS FROM THE OLD CARPET Make the Beat Poeaible Foundation— Not Costly, and Are Attractive and Practical. When your carpet* have become too worn for use, cut them up Into any desired sizes as foundations for new rugs to be made In this way: Take, let us say, two yards of dark green monk's cloth, which Is S 3 Inches wide, and lay It smoothly down over a worn piece of carpet,sewing the selvage of the carpet—or if the carpet has had to be cut so that a selvage Is Impossi ble, whip the raw edges carefully be fore fastening the monk's cloth to It At the ends allow about two Inches of the cloth to extend beyond the edges of the carpet, which must be Qrst whipped before they are fastened down. Then unravel the ends of the cloth—a particularly easy thing to do with monk’s cloth—and In this way make a finishing fringe. If further ornamentation Is desired a stenciled border may be painted on either end. Or a band of a lighter or darker shade than- the color of the monk's cloth may be stitched op perfectly plain or applied In a conventional design. In my own home we have made not only rugs such as the above, but most attractive small rugs for the batli - - room, using burlap Instead of the monk’s cloth, and ornamenting them with a simple cross-stitch deßlgn work In heavy yarn. The old carpet under them gives durability and keeps them from curling up. When the burlap wears out or becomes much soiled It 1b a very simple matter to take It off and put a new piece over the. old foundation. These rugs cost very lit tle, yet they are really a most attrac tive and practical invention. —Ex- change. The House Keeper To make hard butter spread easily, beat it to a cream Instead of warm ing It. This way gives it better flavor and prevents waste. To use mustard with bacon use it in the cooking of It; In this way cover each side of the slice of bacon with a thin layer of made mustard (make with water, not vinegar), and fry as usual. This does not cause the mus tard to get hot, but gives it a deli cious flavor. To enjoy mashed potatoes at their best, add a little baking powder just before serving, the proportion being half a teaspoonful if six people are to be served. This makes them so de liciously white and light that you will never serve them without it again. To make new potatoes scrape easily, and also to prevent the hands being stained, put them to soak in water for a little while, to which a small piece of common soda has been added. To keep moths out of your closets and cheßts without giving the clothes an unpleasant odor sprinkle oil of cedar freely inside on the wood In the corners. Be careful that it- does not touch the clothing, or it may leave a stain. Filipino Beef. Trim all portions not edible from IVi pounds of round steak and half a pound of lean, fresh- pork; put the meat with 1 onion peeled and 1 green pepper pod, freed from seeds, through a meat chopper; add 1 teaspoonful salt, a cup sifted bread crumbs (soft, not dry crumbs) and a beaten egg; mix all together thoroughly, then shape into a roll; set the roll of meat in an agate pan. strain about a quart of stewed tomatoes around the meat, put 2 slices of bacon above and let cook about 40 minutes, basting sev eral times with the tGmato. If pre ferred the tomato may be omitted and the meat be basted, with dripping. Cook parboiled potatoes with the meat and serve the dish with a brown to mato sauce: use small potatoes so as to serve whole. Apple and Pea Salad. Drain through a colander a can of peas. Rinse with cold water. Chop two apples fine with one medium-sized cucumber. Mix with the peas togeth er with one-half cupful of coarsely chopped pecans or walnuts.

His Most Harrowing Experience O doubt, colonel,” said the beautiful girl, "you have undergone some terrible hardships and frigbt'ul ’ ordeals?" The gray-balred veteran. N who had found an easy seat afte« the rather trying Memorial day pa r rade, permitted a twinkle to creep into his good eye. He still had admira tion for beauty. "Yes,” be said, "I hare had some pretty rough experiences.” “I have always thought," she as sured him with sweet enthusiasm, "that if I were a man I should rather be a soldier than anything else. It “You Must Tell Me About Them/' seems to me It must be so splendid to think that one may be called on at any moment to risk one's lire." "Oh, It hardly comes to that." “But you Just said you had under gone terrible ordeals. Haven’t you ever been In a battle?" “Yes, I have been In a number ot battles." “How lovely!" she exclaimed, tak ing a seat beside him. “You must tell me about them.” “Where shall 1 begin? Do you want to hear the whole history of my life? I’m afraid most of it would be unin teresting." “Tell me about your most terrible experience.” “Let me see? I hardly think you would care to hear about that.” “Oh, Indeed I would. You needn't be afraid that 1 shall faint at the men tion of blood. 1 Imagine I can see you sitting upon your champing charger, waving your gleaming sword, and calling upon your men to fbllow you—to death. If necessary." “My most terrible experience had no such romantic setting." "Didn’t It? At least you picked up the flag after the brave man who had carried It fell, and waved it In deQ ance at the enemy.” “I did’ that once, but It wasn't my most terrible experience." "Well, please go on and tell me about It.” “It was night before last.
