TO PLANT LILY BULBS,
woman from Worcester, Ohio,
V wishes to know when to plant her lily
Nbulbs and how to pot h;" hyacinths
' for winter bloom. The only rule about
lilies is to get them into the ground
as soon after digging as possible. Most
of them should be planted five or six
inches deep; auratum and others
should go eight Gr nine inches deep.
Candidum must be set just as it comes
out of the ground, with the new green
Yaaves spread ever the surface. The
cJJp secret about hyacinth potting is
to have plenty of charcoal or broken
pottery in your pots, and fdl up with
peaty soil and sand, or with old sod
well rotted. A housewife who wants
good soil for her plants should keep
a little pile of sod in an out of the way
. corner, rotting; then mix with it foi
t Ti,Sa some n'(v' leau- sand, about one
. '- rhird. Hyacinths, when potted, should
be set in the cellar or some dark rcoir
for about three weeks. Bring then tc
the light throe or four weeks before
they are wnnto'd. Where thestalhs
begin to bloom too low down, wind
about a funnel of paper, and crowd it
tlfiwn into the dirt. The stalks will
fn climb up through to get light.

THE WALNUT CATEHriLLAR.
No insect Is so destructive to the
foliage of walnut and butternut trees
as this. It is a large blackish, hairy
caterpillar that attacks the leaves dur
ing summer. It is the larvae of a good
sized moth that makes Its appearance
vjfrom the middle of June to about July
Land deposits seventy to 100 eggs
OHiho under surface of the leaves. In
a sluut time the larvae hatch and begin
feeding upon the foliage. They in
crease rapidly in size and in a few
weeks attract attention on account of
tl defoliated iwigs where they have
bia at work. These caterpillars are
gil'irions in habit, and at the time of
moiling or casting of the old skin
to give place to a new one, they mi
grate in. a body to the trunk of the
tree, frequently descending nearly to
its base. Piling tiiemsclves one upon

While many people have been cured of

Peruna has cured cases innumerable of
catarrh of twenty years' standing. It is
the best, if not the only internal remedy
for chronic catarrh in existence.
But prevention is far better than cure.

If such be the unhappy condition of

wliat must be th feelings of those In
whom torturing h'iniors have fur
years ruu riot, covering the skin with
scales and sores and charging the
blood with poisonous elements to
become a part of the system until

tray such sufll-ring. Death in incny
cases might be considered a blessing.

Into torturing disease, and piqued van

little wart on the nos3 or cheek grows
to the all-devouring lupus, a patch of
tetter on the palm of the hand or on
the limbs suddenly envelops the body
in its fiery embrace, a bruise on the leg
expands into a gnawing ulcer, which
reaches out its fanys to the sufferer's
heart in every paroxysm of pain, a
email kernel in the neck multiplies im
a dozen, which eat away the vitality,
great pearl-like scah'3 prow from little

'Which involve great mental distress i
because of personal disllgurations. j
If there were not another external I
disease known, eczema alone would be
a sulflcienl 'nf.lctlon on mankind. It
pe?vr.,ies all clasHcC. and descends im-
" partially through generations. While
some are constantly enveloped in it,
others have it , confined to small
patches in the, ears, on the scalp, on
the breast, on the palms of the hands,
on the limbs, etc., but everywhere its
distinctive feature Is a unal! watery
blister, which discharges an acrid
fluid, causing heat, inflammation, and
intense itching. King-worm, tetter,
scalled head, dandruff, belong to this
pcaly and itching order of diseases.
Psoriasis, our modern leprosy, with
its mother-of-pearl scale, bit tinted on
a reddened base, which bleeds upon
the removal of the scale, is to be
dreaded and avoided, a of old. Im
petigo, barber's itch, erysipelas, and a
score of minor disorders make up ia
part the catalogue of external diseases
of the skin. Thus far we have made
no allusion to those nfilictions which
are manifestly impurities of the blood,
vis. : swelling of the glands of the
"throat, ulcers on the neck and limbs,
tumors, abscesses, and mercurial
poisons, with loss of hair, because
tho whole list can be comprehended in
the one word scrofula.
It Is in the treatment of torturing,
disfiguring humors and affections of
. the skin, scalp, and blood, with loss of
hair, that the Cuttcura remedies have
achieved their greatest f uecess. Orig

able to the most delicate and sensitive,
they present to young and old the most
successful curative of modern times.
This will be conslde ed strong language
by those acquainted wilh the character
and obstinacy of blood and skin humors
but It is justified by innumerable suc
cesses where all the remedies and meth
ods in vogue have failed to cure, and,
in many cases, to relieve, even.
The Cuticura treatment is at once
agreeable, speedy, economical, and
comprehensive. Bathe the affected
parts freely with hot water and Cuti

crusts and scales, and soften the'
