Published Every Friday. EOLIVAU. TENNESSEE DEVELOPMENT OF AFRICA. JIow Kngland Is Forcing a Large Trad The Slnve Traffic. American schemes for the extension of trade with Africa have not met with that degrco of success which the most eanguiue had hoped for. Not many years apo a prominent New York mer chant became quite enthusiastic re epectinjj the prospects of Liberia, Bending out sugar mills, encouraging coffee culture, and aiding In the depor latlon of American negroes, but the BO-called "republic" now exists scarce ly in name. In like manner a stoam Bhip project which for a time engaged the fostering interest of several New York gentlemen phil'anthropically in clined never took a tangible form and passed out of mind. But a line of mailing vessels from New York to Li beria has been maintained, and Ameri can exports of manufactured cotton to Africa through various channels form a considerable item. Meanwhile En gland is building up a flourishing trade on both sides of the continent, on the west coast and at Zanzibar. Trade with the colony of Lagos for the year 1887 amounted to $1,500,000, and it is calculated that the entire trade of great Britain with the west coast last year amounted to the approximate value of $25, 000, 000 of imports and $13,000,000 of exports, comparing well with some portions of India. At Zan zibar, up to the recent breaking out of hostilities, the whole coast. was a con tinuous lino of British Indian trading stations, and trading increased rapidly to $10,000,000, the greater part of this being in the hands of British subjects. "Unfortunately," as we are told by Archbishop Farrar, "this property at tracted tho greed of certain German adventurers," who made "bogus treaties," claimed vast tracts of coun try, and proceeded to take possession despite tho remonstrances of the Sul tan. Furthermore, according to the authority just quoted, "the whole trado of tho coast is in the hands of some 10,000 British subjects from In dia, including tho ivory trade, copra. gum opal, india rubbor, hide and grain trades. These British Indians have lent large sums of money to the Arab ivory caravans. They have also in invested their profits in mortgages on the houses and plantations of the Arabs, feeling quito secure under the shadow of English justice. Tho Brit ish Indians have 500,000 of floating capital employed at this time in tho ivory trade in the far interior, and unless somo decisive measures are un dertaken by tho Pnglish Government this largo sum must inevitably be lost." England appears to have be come inextricably involved by joining in an agreement with Germany to maintain a blockade "to put down tho slavo trade," a feat somewhat difficult of accomplishment where every Afri can and Arab trader is a slaveholder either in will or deed. Clearly enough, it would now appear the "development of Africa," whatever this may mean, has received a check from which there will bo tardy recovery. It is surmised, however, that traders in Zanzibar, while postponing indefinitely tho real ization of hopes for the commercial subjugation of the interior lnko re gions accessible from this point may give a new impetus to tho Congo Free State and to efforts to penetrate trop ical Africa through the Soudan. The marvelous achievements of Living stone's successor. Henry M. Stanley, of whom full advices hnvo just coiuo to hand, invest tho subject with a new interest. Iron Ago. THEY ALU DID WELL Hut TheophlliiM Sagacity Touched the Olc Mnu'n Heart. Once upon a time an old man called his th -ce sons to him in the dusk of fi?e evening, and in a. .altering voice paid to them: "My boys, in a little while yon will have no father. I am standing on tho shore of tho river of death and soon I must launch my boat upon it. Now, I have, as you know, a splendid farm upon which one man, run thrive, but as there are three of you I have boon sorely perplexed as to which should have it. I have there fore decided to givo each of you two dollars that you must spend to-morrow, and to tho one making tho wisest purchase shall tho farm be given. Como to mo to-morrow evening at this time and tell mo how you havo each expended your money. Now, good night, and Heaven bless you all." On tho folio-wing evening tho three sons assembled before their father. "Reg inald," said the latter to the fldest, "what did you purchase with your two dollarsP'' "Father," returned the son, "1 pondered long that 1 might make wiso use of the money, and at last I bought a. pair of strong shoes." "Well done, well done; the journey through life is rugged and hard, and the thorns nro thick upon tho way. You havo shown prudence and fore thought, and 1 love you tho better for it. And what did you buy, Angus- to?" "I. too. thought lone: and deep! v." responded tho second son. that I might not purchnso any thing trivial or foolish. Since tho cap that 1 wear is worn and ragged. I bought a hat with a wide brim, which I show to you, my father." The old man re garded him with a glance of pride and affection, and said: "You. too. have .mo-well. An-rustus: oten in this world the brow is fevered and the sun's rnvs bent tiercel v upon tho aching head, nnd your hat will comfort you. I rejoice that my sons are filled with wisdom. And you. Theophilus, what did vr.u buv?" "Mv father, answered Theophilus. "I didn't ponder worth cent. As soon as I left you last even ing I blew in my stuff for flvo tickets to the base-ball games." With tears of joy streaming down his furrowed face, the venerable man embraced Theophilus and murmured in a voice hoarse with emotion: "Had I a farm as large as Texas, with a wind-mill or it, it would be yours!" And then Reg inald and Augustus moved sadly away into tho gathering gloom, and while one tried to keep the flies off himself with his hat. the other kicked himseli severely with his boots.

Caleb wanted it, and he offered his daughter Acnsah as a prize to any ouo who would capture that city. It was a strange thiug for Caleb to do; and yet tho man that could tako the city would Lave, at nrfv rate, two elements of man- and natriotism. With Caleb's daughter as a prize to fight for, (Jeneral Otlmiel rode into the battle. The gates of Debir were thundered into tlio dust, and the city of books lay at the feet of the conquerors. Th work none, Othniel comes back to claim his bride Havlnjr conquered the city, it is no great lob for him to conquer the girl's heart, for however faint-hearted a woman her self mav be she always loves courage in a man.. I never saw an exception to that. The weddinff festivity having gone by, Othniel and Achsart are about to go to their new home. However loudly the cymbals may clash and the laughter ring, parents are always sad when a fondly-chorished daughter goes off to stay; and Achsah, the daughter of Caleb, kuows that now is the time to ask almost any thing she wonts of her father. Tt sferr.s th it Caleb, the goou old man, had given as a wedding present to his d:ii2-hter a niece of lund that was mount ainous. and sloping southward toward the deserts of Arabia, swpt with some very hot winds.

Oh. my friends, this Is "a south land," and it slopes off toward de serts of sorrows; and the prayer which Achsah made to her father Caleb, we make this day to our Father Ood: "Thou hast given me a south land; give me also springs of water. And he gave them the npper springs, and the nether springs.' Blessed be God I We have more ad van tapes given us than we can really appre ciate. We have spiritual blessings or fered us in this world which I shall call the nether springs, and glories in the world to come which I shall call the up per springs. Where shall I find wonh enough threaded with light to set forth the pleasures of religiou? David, unable to describe it in words, played it on harp. Mrs. Hemans, not finding enough nower in urose. siugs that praise in canto. Christopher Wren, unable to de scribe it in language, sprung It into the arches of St, I'sul's. Jonn Bunyan, un able to present it in ordinary phraseology, takes all the fascination of allegory Handel, with orumnry music unable to l-;ach the height of the theme, rouses up in an oratorio. Oh, there is no life on earth so happy as a really Christian life, I do net mean a sham Christian life, but a real Christian life. Where there is a thorn there is a whole garland of roses "Where there is one groan there are three doxologies. Where there is one day of cloud there is a whole season of sunshine Take the humblest Christian man tea you know angels of Uod canopy him with their white wing; the lightnings of Heaven are his armed ll.es; ihe Lord is his Shepherd, picking out for him green pastures by still water: if he Tt!- forth. Heaven is his body-guard; if be lie down to sleep, ladders of ltsM, angel blossom ing, are let into his dreams; if he be thirsty, the potentates of Heaven are his cup-bearers; if he sit down to food.

When he comes to die, though he u&y be carried out iu nine box to tie potter's field, to that potter 'a field the chariots of Christ will come down, and the cavalcade will crowd all the boulevards of Heaven. 1 bless Christ for the present satisfac tion of religion. It makes a man all right with reference to the past; it makes a man. all right with reference to the fut- nre. on these nether springs or com fort! They are perennial. The founda tion of God staudeth sure having this seal: "The Lord knoweth them that are His." "The mountains shall depart and the hills be retrieved, but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace bo removed, saith the Lord, who hath mercy upon them." Oh, cluster of diamonds set in burnished gold! Oh, nether springs of comfort bursting through all the valleys of trial and tribulation ! When yon see, you of the world, what satisfaction there Is on earth in religlo, do you not tlrirst after it as the daughter of Caleb thirsted alter the water springs? It is no stagnant pond, scummed over with malaria, but springs of water leaping from the Rock of Ages? Take up one cup of that spring water, and across the top of tho chalice will float the delicate shadows or tne heavenly wall, the yellow of jasper, the green of emerald, the blue of sardonyx, the fire of iacinth. I wish I could make you understand the joy religion is tb some of us. It makes a man happy while he lives, and glad when he dies. With two feet upon a chair and bursting with dropsies, I heard an old man in the poor house cry out: "Bless the Lord, oh my soul !" I looked around and said: "What has this man got to thank God for!"' It makes the laujo man leap like the hart, and the dumb sing. They say that the old Puritan religion is a juiceless and joyless religion; but I re member reading of Dr. Goodwin, the celebrated Puritan, who in his last moments said: "Is this dying? Why, my bow abides in strength 1 I am swallowed up in God I" "Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace." Oh, yon have been trying to satisfy' yours elves with the "south land" of this world, do you not feel that you would this morning like to have access to the nether springs of spiritual com fort? Would you not like to have Jesus Christ bend over your cradle and bless your table, and heal youf wounds, and strew flowers of consolation all up and down the graves of your dead? Tis religion that can give Sweetest pleasures while we live; 'Tis religion can supply Sweetest comfort when we die. But I have something better to tell yon, suggested by tlas text. It seems that old father Caleb on the wedding day of his daughter wanted to make her just as hap py as possible. Though Othniel was tak en her away, and his heart was almost broken because she was going, yet he gives her a "south land;" not only that, but the upper springs. O God, my Fa ther, I thank Thee that Thou hast given m a "south land" in this world, and the nether springs of spiritual comfort in this world; but, more than all, I thank Thee for the upper springs iu Heaven. It is very fortunato we can not see Heaven until wo get into it Ob, Christian man, if you could see what a place it is we would never get you back again to the office or store or shop, and the duties you ought to perform would go neglected. I am glad 1 shall not see that world until I enter it. Suppose we were allowed to go on an excursion Into that good land with the idea of returning. When we got there, and heard the song, and looked at their raptured faces, and mingled in the supernal society, we would cry out: "Let ns stay! We are coming here anyhow. Why take the trouble of going back to that old world? AVe are here now; let us stay." And it would take angelic violence to put us out of that world, if we once got there. But as people who can not afford to pay for an entertainment sometimes come around it and look through the door ajar, or through the opening in the fence, so we come and look through the crevices in that good land which God has provided for us. We can just catch a gllmpsa of We come near enough to hear the rumbling of the eternal orchestra, though not near euough to know who blows the cornet or who finders the harp. My soul preads out both wings and claps them in riumph at the thought of those upper prings. One of them breaKs rrom oe- neath the throne; another breaks forth from beneath the altar of the temple; an other at the door of "the house of many mansions." Upper springs of gladness! Upper springs of li,'ht! Upper springs of love! It is no fancy of mine, "ine iiamo which is in tho midst of the throne shall lead them to living fountains of waters." Oh, Saviour Divine, roll m upon our souls one of those anticipated raptures I P-nr around the roots of the parched tonguo ouo drop of that liquid life. Toss before our visioa those fountains or uod, rainbowed with eternal victory. Hear it. They are never sick there; not so much as a headache, or twinge rheumatic, or thrust neuralgia. The inhabitant never says: "1 obi sick." iney are never tired there. Flight to farthest world is only tho play of a holiday. They never sin there. It is as easy for them to be holy as it is for us to sin. They never die there. You niiRht go through all the outskirts of the great city and find not one place where the group--! was broken for a grave. The evesight of the redeemed is never olurred witfl tears, lnere is health in every cheek. There is spring in every foot. There n majesty on every brow. There is joy ia every heart. There is hosanna ou every lip. How they must pity us as they look over and down and see us. and soy: -roor tilings away down in that world." And when some Christian is hurled into a fatal acci dent, they cry: "Good! ce is com ing!" And when we stand around the couch of some loved one, whose strength is going away, and we shake our heads forebodingly, they cry. "l am giaa ne is worse; he has been down there long enough. There, he is dead! Come home! Come home'." Oh, if we could only get our ideas about that future world un twisted, our thought of transfer from here to there would be as pleasant to us as it was to a little child that tves dying. Sho said: "Papa, when will I go homv?" And he said: "To-day, Florence." "To day? So soon? I am so glad:" I wish I could stimulate you wita these thoughts, oh Christian man, to the high--est possible exhilaration. The day of your deliverance is coming, is coming. It is rollkig ou with the shiuing wheels of the day, and the jet wheels of the. night. Every thump of the heart is only a harn- msr-stroke striking off another chain of ciay. better scour the deck and coil the rope, the harbor is only six miles away. Jesus will come down in the "Narrows" to meet you. Now is your salvation near er than when you believed. Unforglven man, unpardoned man, will you not to day make a choice between these two por tions, the "south land" of this world, which slopes to the desert, and this glorious land which thy Father offers thee, running with eternal water courses? Why let your tongue be consumed with thirst when there are the nether springs and the upper springs, comfort here and glory hereafter? Let me tell you, my dear brother, that the silliest and wickedest thing & man ever-does is to reject Jesus Christ. The loss of the soul is a mistake that can not be corrected. It U a downfall that knows no alleviation ; it is a ruin that is remedi less; it is a sickness that has no medica ment; it is a grave into which a maii. goes, but never comes out. Therefore, putting my hand on your shoulder as one brother puts his hand on ths shoulder of a brother, I say this day.be manly and surrender your heart to Christ. Yon have been long enough serving the world: now beg-in serving the Lord who bought you. You have tried long enough to. carry these burdens ; let Jesus Christ put His shoulder under your burden. Do I hear any one in the audience say: "I mean to attend t that after awhile; it is not just the time" It is the time, for Ums simple reason ti-at you are sure of no other; and God sen Is you here this raorn ini', and He sent mo h-re to confront you with this Tnessa.ge: and you must heax now that Christ died to save your soul, and that if you want t be saved you may be saved. "Whosoever will, let him come." You will never fiud any more convenient s'easoa than this. Borne of you have beea wait ing ten, twenty, thirty, frty, fitty and sixty years. On some of yoa th mow has fallen. I see it on your brow, find yet you have not attended to those -duties which belong to the very springdme of life. It is September with you nowy it i October with you, it ia December- with vou. . I am no alarmist. I simply knowtfhis: If a man does not repent ia this worl& be never repeuts at all, and that now ft tfha accepted time, and now is the day of l vation. Oh, put off this matter no longev. Do not turn your back on Jesus Christ who cornea to save you, lest you shcmldt lose your sonl.

Soma one. referring to the broom, face tiously calls it the scepter of the housewife, and, whatever truth there may be in thl appellation, certain it is that the broom stands at the head of housekeeping tools There la nothing will take its place Brushes and carpet-sweepers are good things to use In a house, but they only do a oertain part of the sweeping, and, although pood for e very-day brushing, cau never per liion Uia work as well as the broom, that makes itself familiar with every hole and corner of tie house. The housewife can get along without brushes, eta, but no matter how many of the latter she may have In the house, the broom can never be spared. When buying a broom always get as good a one as possible, for a poor one is a bad in vestment. Choose one of medium weight, for a heavy or light broom is alike tiresome, the one for its weight and tho other for tho pressure that must be borne upon it, if the sweeping is to be done properly. The brush end should be of a green tinge and of me dium firmness, that it will require some pressure to bend it. See that the straw i composing it are long, and go each one to the handle of the broom, whjere they are securely fastened. If there are short straws between the bottom and handle fastened under either of the wires on the brush, al though they may look firm, the broom will not wear for any length of time. An old-fashioned way of keeping th straws together is to sew around the brush from a little above the center to within faux or five inches at the bottom, a flannel cloth, or the leg of an old sock is still better, drawn down over the brush. This keep the straws in place, and they do not break off as easily as if left plain. This covering can be taken off and washed when neces sary. Wash the kitchen broom in warm soap ouds once a week, but for the ones used for parlor and other rooms once a month U usually sufficient. Aside from cleaning tho straws, the washing prevents them becom ing too dry, which is a frequent cause of breaking off. Hang the broom up always, when it can be done, by screwing into the top a brass ring, or boring a hole through the handle of tho top with a gimlet, and running a string through. Don't let tho broom stand in a corner with bush end down, or It will soon be out of shape, bat If it mast be on the floor at all, stand it with brush end up. Always have, at tho least, two brooms In the house, one for the bare floor and one for the carpets. AH good housewives know that a broom used for the kitchen is not fit to be used In sweeping the parlor, neither is a broom used on auv bare boards tit for tho carpets. In a large house tt saves many 6tcps If there Is a broom on each landing. Boston Budget ABOUT FEMALE BEAUTY. Th Vanity of Woman a It I LIplayert in Varlaui Countrlei. The ladles of Arabia stain their fingers and thoir toes red, their eyebrows black. and their lips blue. In Persia they paint black streak around the eyes and ornament their faces with various figures. The Jap anese women gild their teeth, and those of tho Indians paint them red. The pearl of the teeth must bo dyed black to bo beauti ful in Guzurat. The Hottentot women paint the entire body in compartments of red and black. In Greenland the women color their faces with blue and yellow, and they frequently tattoo their bodies by saturating threads in Boot, inserting them beneath the skin, and then drawing them through Hindoo ie males, when they wish to appear particu larly lovely, smear themselves with a mixt ure of saffron, turmeric and grease. In nearly all islands of tho Taciflc and Indian oceans, tho women, as well as tne men. tattoo a great variety of figures on the face, the Hps, tonguo and tho wholo body. In New Holland they cut themselves with hells, and keeping the wounds open a long time form deep scars in the flesh, which they deem highly ornamental. And another singular mutilation U maxio among mem Dy taking off. In infancy, the little finger of the left hand, at the second Joint. In ancient Persia, an aquiline nose was often thought worthy of the crown; but the Sumatra mother carefully flattens the nose of her daughter. Among some of the savage tribes of Oregon, and also in humatra and Arra oan. continual pressure is applied to the skull in ordsr to flatten it, and thus giro it a new beauty. The modern Persians have a strong aver slon to red hair; the Turks, on the con trary, are warm admirers of it In China, small, round eyes are liked, and the girls are continually plucking their eytibiows that they may be thin and long. But the great beauty of a Chinese lady is her feet, whion. In childhood, are so compressed by bandages as effectually to prevent ant further Increase In size. The four smallei toes are turned under the foot, to tho sole of which they firmly adhere, and tho pooi girl not nly endures much pain, but often becomes a cripple for life. Another mark of beauty consists in finger-nails so long that casings of hamboo are neceBary to preserve them from Injury. An African beauty must havo smalt eyes, thick lips, a largo, flat nose, and a skin beautifully black. In New Guinea the nose is perforated, and a large piece of wood or bone Inserted.

Subject. In the course of a lecture on tho "Sacred Book of tha East," at Sheffield, Trot Max Muller said In his opinion there was no re ligion in tho whole world which la sim plicity. In parity of purpose, in charity and true humanity, came near to that roglon which Christ tanght to His disciples. And yet that very religion wss being attacked on all sides, and one ot oar most eloquent Bishops had said that the unbelief of tho day was not only aggressrve, but almost omnipresent. The principal reason for this wss the neglect of our foundations, tho dis regard of our own bookless religion, the al most disdain of natural religion. Even Bishops would curl theirilp and toss their heads when spoken to of that natural nnd universal religion which existed before tho advent of our historical religions, and with out which all historical religion would have been as impossible as poetry without language. Tho heart and mind and soul cf nnan were tho same under every elty. In all the varying circum stances of human life, and it would Indeed bo awful to believe that any human beings should havo been deprived of that light "which lighteth every man that cometb into the world." It was that light that light eth every man. and which has lighted aU tho religions ot the world, call them book less or Uterato, human or divine, natural or supernatural, which alone could dispel tho darkness of donbt and fear that had come over tho world.

A BAR OF IRON. tt Vine When Converted Into Horse thoOJ, Pen Knives and Watch 8prlnrs. I ha ve a curious, calculating friend, who is fond of startling his comrades with immense possibilities in the way of figures. The other night he threw ua all into a violent perspiration by propounding the proposition as to how much wages and national profit could be derived from tho raw material of a bar of iron, valise 20 shillings. I am thankful to say that none of us made asses of ourselves by attempting any wild guesses, but solemnly smoked on. It would indeed have been cruel to an ticipate the conjurer's solution, which we knew was already worked out. So presently, after a slight, very slight, pretense at mental calculation, our faiend and philosopher said that if wtorked into horseshoes the value o! tle bar of iron is turned from 20 intc 40 shillings. Well, eo great shakes tl&. We breathed again, and began to tancy that there wasn't so verj much in the conundrum, after all. B it, continued our friend and phi losopher, if made into needles the bar of inn is turned from 1 into 70; meaning 69 to the credit of labor and national profit of some kind or other earned. Then we began to gasp, and a few of tthe more devoted disciples ol the cause of home industry contem plated thefcr domestic, consumption of needles from the patriotic point of view. .tlowever, more was to come. Made into the blades of pen-knives, its transpired that the bar of iron, value 1 pound, becomes worth 657! Was tlaere a man among us that did not thenceforth regard his familiar pocketcompanion as a symbol of industry.the stign and token of labor, the eloquent example of the majesty of labor. But our mathematical minded com rade had not yet made his point. All the foregoing was but as airy trifles to play with. When we were all wondering and admiring ourselves as the happy owners of pen-knives, he suddenly sprung on us his last surprise. If the bar of iron be made into balance springs of watches it is turned from a value of 1 to a value of 50,000. No less a sum that 49,000, perorated our friend and philosopher, is gained by the nation in wages and in profit earned by the vAorkers, the capitalists. the distributors, the owners of the houses and shops in which they are made and sold, and by the hordes en gaged in the buiidinsr thereof; in the rates and taxes paid by every man, woman and child direatly or indirectly concerned in this enormpus wage earning capacity of our liutle bar of iron, value 20s. to begin wifih. to say nothing of all the other trades and in dustries that find employment through the customers whom this national earning of 19,000 brings into ex istence. London Fair Trade. READY IN ANSWER. Some of the liright Kepartees of "Camp- Meeting" John Allen. "Camp-meeting" John Allan was al ways ready with a retort for friend or foe, sometimes scalhing. and always humorous. After his conversion he met an old minister who plied him with searching questions of the genu ineness of his experience, and the j'oung man complained of the severity of this catechism. "If the tree bo well-rooted," said the minister, "it will not be harmed if we shake it." "But." said the convert, "the Mas ter said to Ilis disciples: 'Feed my lambs,' not 'Go and shake them,1 " At another time when Mr. AUen was about to begin his sermon in a nevi place, a former pastor said to him "Are you a long preacher?" "Five feet, seven inches," was the immediate reply. At a meeting of ministers a Baptist was invited to give his views on the subject of Methodist economy, and at once rose, saying that, although there were many excellent things in Meth odism, it seemed to him to have toe much machinery. Mr. Allen was on his feet in a mo ment. "The Methodist Church may have more machinery than the Baptist," he replied, "but it doesn't require as much water to run it." When the question of prohibition was under general disVission, a red faced toper one day said to Mr. Allen: "I shall vote against jtou on this ques tion." "Your face voted before you epoke," was the quick reply. A lawyer of opposite politics said to him, about the same time: "Mr. Allen, on which side are you going to voter for I shall vote against you." "On the right side," was the answer. "Which side is yours?" One morninc at a Methodist camp- meeting a young man arose, and said. pompously; "I do not believe in sing ing, 'Oh, to be nothing.' I propose to be something, and I want people to know it." Brother Allen instantly rose and re peated the verses: 'If a man think himself to be some thing when he is nothing, he deceiv eth himself. But let very man prove his own work, and then thall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another. " The question of ambition was not disenssed further that day. Youth'e Companion. The Tyranny of Dress-makers. A prominent woman of this city de clares that she Is ready to organize a society for the protection of women from the tyranny of dress-makers. Just think of it." she exclaims, "in the great majority of cases we can't have a dress made as we want it for love or money. The dress-maker Bcornfully ignores our desires, and makes it to suit herself. 'I won't make your gown that way,' said my dress-maker the other day in answer to a suggestion of mine. 'It is not the style now.1 -But,' I protested. it is the most becoming style for me.' No difference,' replied the autocrat, 1 know best how it should be made.1 Now, if a man should go to his tailor and order a suit to be made in the Continental style, it would be made so. no matter what the tailor privately thought of his customer's tatto. But the dress-maker treats her customer as a child and ignores her wishes en tirely. Then, too, a dress-maker will solemnly promise to make a costume for a certain price, and in three cases out of five will calmly charge one third more. It is high time for wom en to kick against this tyranny and teach dress-makers to do business in a businesslike wav." N. Y. Tribune. The land roller and stalk cxitter have proven to be two of the most useful implements on the farm. Early Americans. Simplicity in their jnode of living was the marked characteristic of the 'early settlers of America. Every thing which pertained to them was plain and unostentatious The food which they ate was frugally served and of the substantial kind. Their clothing was home-spun and the moccasins which covered their feet ere a home product, being made from the hide of animals and ornamented with beads after the Indian fashion. Their homes were simplicity itself, con sisting of roughly hewn logs and homo made shingles the whole constituting the old Log-Cabin home of frontier life. Yet those were model homes. Tho wives and mothers were well versed in the art of all that pertained to house wifery. Conspicuous in the early home was tho striking figure of the old grandmother. Hot only was she tho adviser in social af fairs but sho was the medical adviser and prescriber for tho sick. Often were her hands engaged ia the preparation of somo healing potion or remedy for tho relief of those in ill-health. Fully versed in all the bountiful supplies contained in the grand store-house of Nature, she wisely knew' how to utilize the curative properties contained in certain roots and herbs and accordingly she transformed taein into certain remedial agents, which have made the old Log Cabin famous for all time to come. Conscious of the great value of some of those old time home cures a successful ef fort has been made to re-discover the lost secret of their preparation, and, coupled with all the4mprovement which human in genuity and progress Buggests, they are now widely known under the name of War ner's Log Cabin Remedies, the most promi nent being Log Cabin sarsaparilla and Log Cabin coughand consumption cure. The suffering publio has been quick to recognize and appreciate their true value aadthe manufacturers are daily in receipt of much praise for tho re-discovery and re vival of these old time remedies against sickness and disease. To tho old Log Cabin home, however, Is justly due the praise for all the good Which may, thereby, be effected. VALUE OF PATIENCE. A Qaallly Necessary to Success in Impor tant Matters. It is the humility of patience which ei oroises all mere obstinacy, and transforms silont endurance from a process of ex haustion a mere wasta of strength Into a power that feeds us with new life and impresses on ns new character. Where is there a great national career that, has not been built upon the qualities which are es sential to patience? Perhapi the French have evinced less capacity for patience than any other equally great people; but oonsider the marvelous root of pationoa In the Norman, the Breton, the Alsatian ele ments of the French characters'; and if Paris has represented a central impatience, has not Paris ruined almost ai often as she bad deHghtel France? In aU the other great nations of the world, the raw materials of patience are tho most notable characteristics of the national character. For example, among the Jews, tho Ro mans, the English, the Germans and Slavs, wo say tho raw material of patience, for tho higher kind of patience ia far too lofty as well as lowly a virtue to be widely diffused through any people. Even among the Jews, whose character in its more ideal form appears to have been .specially Intended to illustrate this great virtue, the raw materials of it far oftcner degen erated into mere doggedness than rose into tlat transcendent spiritual quality by which men win the'r souls.

To this end, as la ac knowledged by all medical men, nothing Is better adapted than iron. The fault hither to has been that iron could not be so pre pared as to be absolutely harmless to the teeth. This difficulty has been overcome by the Brown Chemical Company of Balti more, Md., who offer their Brown's Iron Bitters as a faultless iron preparation, a positive cure for dyspepsia, indigestion, liiduey troubles, etc. Hard water is wasteful of soap, because it contains lime salts, which form an insoluble compound with the soap, thus rendering a part of it useless.

David Dcdlet Field's hobby Is his love of pedestrlanism and he is proud of his feats in this direction. Physicians are justified ia denouncing proprietary medicines which claim to cure every thing. A medicine, for instance, that will cure rheumatism in ono person, will not necessarily cure it in another, for the condition causing it may be different; but Ma'arUi is always Malaria, and Bhallcnber ger's Antidote will destroy it in the system in every case. If you are suffering from Malaria you. will know it, and this medicine Will certainly cure you. Bold by Druggists.
