Dated Beginning of Year from
Opening of Spring
When All Things In Nature Start
Some Other Things In Which the Ancients
Have Given Us Points.
The ancients began their year with
the advent of spring. How much
more appropriate thus to begin the
New Year with the new life of na
ture in the awakening Bpring. At
this season all processes throughout
the natural world start afresh.
The ancients also showed their
sagacityand appreciation of the great
time, by realizing that this Is also the
time for renewed life and energy in
the human system. They well knew
that the blood should be cleansed
from impurities and the nerves re-invigorated
at this season. Henco the
establishment of the custom of tak
ing a good spring medicine.
This most sensible and healthy
custom is followed by almost every
body at the present duy, few people
of intelligence venturing to go
through this trying time of change
from winter to summer without tak
ing a spring medicine.
The unanimity on this subject is a
ettled fact; the only question, hereto-
Mb. Btodohtok L. Yxbxhxx.
Eore has been in regard to what is the
est thing to take. The people have
How become unanimous in their de
cision that as a upringtonicand restor
ative, Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and
nerve remedy iapre-eminently the best.
Year aftcryearDr. Greene's Nervura
blond and nerve remedy has proved
Itself the surest, most positivo and
reliable remedy. Made from pure
Tegetable medicines, it Invariably
cleanses, purifies and enriches the
blood, making the blood rich and red,
nd at the same time, by its invigor

1 In fact, Dr. Greene's Nervura blood
and nerve remedy has proved itself
the most perfect of medicines and
.Just what everybody needs for a
Bpring remedy. Try it this spring,
i Mr. Stoughton L. Farnham of Man
chester, N. II., says:
"Some time ago I was troubled
with lassitude and a feeling of fa
tigue. I did not have the ambition
to do anything that demanded un
usual physical exertion.
"I was recommended by a friend to
try Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and
perve remedy. I took two or three
bottles and am prepared to say that
it did me good. 1 can recommend it
as a tonic, as I know it helped me."
Remember Dr. Greene's Nervura
blood and nerve remedy is recom
mended by physicians, in fact, it is a
physician's prescription, the discov
ery of the well-known specialist in
nervous and chronic diseases, Dr.
Greene, of 35 W. 14th St., New York

THE SATURDAY NIGHT BATH.
I am a little feller wtio
Loves swlmmln', like all fellers do,
And all my mother talks about
My Rlttln' drown'd can't keep me out.
And w hen It's hot nix times a day
I'm In the pond. The fellers say
I beat a duck.' But ain't It queer
When I'm In swlmmln" half the year
To bo a-scared of water when
Ma says: "Come, iihnnle! Little men
Must all be clean for Sunday and
The tub Is ready. Understand?"
It's awful hard, but ma don't care.
And walks me In the kitchen where
I have to strip myself and get
Hlght In that tub of water wet.
While mother, In her apron long,
And sleeve tucked up, and O, so stronf,
Just rubs and scrubs with soap on thick,
No matter how I yell and kick.
"My stars!" she says, "I never knew
A boy could get so dirty. You
Must wallow In It." Then she rubs
And digs In tender spots and scrubs
Twice hnrder spite of all my cries.
And gets the soapsuds In my eyes,
And then I howl, 'cause, O! it smarts
Like fury, and then mother parts
My eyelids and blows In 'em till
The hurt is gone, and then she'll spill
Col J water on me so I won't
Catch cold, she says, ard yellin' "don't!
You'll kill me," will not make her stop,
Nor kickln', though I make a slop.
O, dear! It's awful frerzln'. Then
"You're clean," ma says, "Jump out," and
I'm quick as llghtnln' out the tub
She takes a towel and she'll rub
So fearful rough It takes the skin
'Most oft and makes more yells begin
And when she stops, from toes to head
All over I'm a steamin' red.
And feelln' splendid everywhere
It beats our vwlmmln' hole for fair.
Then mother hustles me right In
My canton flannel night gown clean
Made like a bathln' suit entire
And warm from hangln' by the fire.
Then oft'a shoutln' In my glee
I race upstairs and mother, she
Comes laughln' after me and then
Beside my crib I kneel, and when
My "Now I lay me" prayer is said
Ma tucks me snug and warm In bed,
And with a loving good-night kiss
leaves me to close my eyes in bliss.
A feller hates a bath like fun
And always kicks but when it's don
He feels so awful nice and clean
And line and srrumptiouB and serene
That he's Just glad his mother made
1 Urn take it. Huh! If he's afraid
Of wushln' then he shouldn't play
Out In the dirt that's what I say.

PROPOSED AUSTRALIAN FLAO.
Newspapers in Melbourne and Sydney
have offered prizes for designs for a na
tional banner. The design shown in
this drawing was recently awarded a
prize, and is, so far, the favorite with
the public. The six red stripes stand
for the five states of Australia and
Tasmania which arc in the confedera

means: The United States of Austra

contest, which was closed February 1,
excited the widest popular interest
throughout Australia. The adoption
of the design will rest with the Austra

THE TERRIBLE DRAGON.

It is quite probable that the dragon
is a memory from ages when our
little earth ball was the home of ter

more horrible monsters, sending It
down through generation after gen
eration of his children.
China the dragon kingdom seems
to be the only land where this much
abused beast is looked upon with
any sort of tolerance, all other folk
giving it credit for being a fire
breathing devourer of men and plac
ing it upon the same moral plane as
the snake, another well-disposed rep
tile that has been given u very bad
character indeed. St. George, Eng
land's patron saint, was a killer of
Kichard II. Geoghegan, acting Brit
ish vice consul at Tncoma, and a
scholar who has lived in China many
years, hns recently been at some
pains to redeem the dragon's reputa
tion. The beast is reverenced in his
own slant-eyed land, and tradition
says that one day 2.S00 years ago
while Emperor Fu-hsi wbj walking
beside the Iiiver Lo a yellow dragon
rose from the water and taught him
the art of writing, giving him an al
phabet by which the Chinese could
record their history. If the monster
had turned the River Lo into gold
he could hardly have given so price
less a gift to Fu-hsi and his descend
ants, and that the Chinese hold him
in grateful rrnipmbranee is much to
their credit. The phoenix, tortoise
and tinieorn nre likewise sacred, but
the dragon is chief. To this day, the
emperor's throne is called "lrrng
wei," while his sublime presence is
referred to as "the dragon counte
nance," "lung-yen." ,
The monster in our picture was
drawn for Mr. Geoghegan by a Chi
nese artist in Taconia, and is prob
ably ns near (he real beast as it is
possible to come. It is shown rising
from the waves of the River Lo
amid flames, and the round object be
tween its claws is "the pearl of mys
tic virtues" a thing so mystic that
none but a Chinaman can fathom it.

The butterfly invariably goes to
sleep head downward, its eyes look
ing . straight down the stem of the
grass. It folds und contracts its
wings to the utmost, partly, perhaps,
to wrap its body from the cold. But
the effect is to reduce its size and
shape to a nurrow ridge, making nn
acute angle with the green stem,
hardly distinguishable in shape and
color from the seed heads on thou
sands of other stems around. It
also sleeps on top of the stem, which
increases its likuaicss to the natural
finial of the grass.
Side by side with the" "blues" sleep
the common "brown heaths." They
use the grass stems for beds, but less
carefully, and with no such obvious
solicitude to compose their limbs in
harmony with the eyes of the plant.
They also sleep with their heads
downward, but the body is allowed
to drop sideways from the. stem like
a leaf. This, with their light color
ing, makes them far more conspicu
ous than the blues. Moreover, as
grass has no leaves shaped In any
way like the sleeping butterfly, the
contrast of shape attracts notice.
Can it be that the blues, whose bril
liant coloring by day makes them
conspicuous to every enemy, have
learned caution, while the brown
heaths, less exposed to risk, are less
careful of concealment?
Be it noticed that moths and but
terflies go to sleep in different atti
tudes. Moths fold their wings back
upon their bodies, covering the lower
wing, which is usually bright in color,
with the upper wing. They fold their
antennae back on the line of their
wings. Butterflies raise the wings
above their bodies and lay them back
to back, putting their antennae be

CATARRH THIRTY YEARS,
A Remarkable Experience of a Prominent
CONGRESSMAN MEEKIS03, OF OHIO.
ITon. David Meekison is well known,
riot only in his own State, but through

Only one flaw marred the otherwise
