This question has not ireen satislaetorilv answered, but it is certain that these diseases are not only the most painful but among the most i-ommon. and Home nu-uiber of nearly etrv familv in the land is tlie victim of one of these dread tormentors. Lzulies seem to he peeuliarlv liable to neuralgic attacks, which, in the firm of neuralgic headache, pain in the tmi'k, or nervous iwms are ot constant oc currence. Not until the discoverv ol Athlo- phuros had any remedy been found for either rheumatism, neuralgia or nervous headache, ami the? were cencrnllv con- ceded to le im'tinhle, but Aihlophoros n;is been prove i to by not only a arm in cure for these dise:iscs, in all their varied forms, but a si A remedv.

Athlo phoros is no experiment, it has bet n toted ana has proved its womterlui tltieacv.

Those who studv the pasfting chronicles of life in the newsiianers of the day, ftjreign as Enclish. must have teea struck ly the increasiiifr; number of suicides to he attributed to the taopelesness and misery of advancing years. Tho dismal record of suicides has its bearing upon the general state f affairs. ith advancms; prosperity the number of those who thus tly the ills of life remains a pretty constant quantity; but any cheek to material iirogress at owe swells the ranks of th self -slaughtered. Thus, in JK?! suicides made a great spring from an average of sixty-nine to eighty-one per million, and it is instructive, if not inspiriting, to note that by far the greater number of cases occur when the medium hue of life is passed. Thus 1 the number of cases between the ages of 45 and o! is far in udvance of those at an earlier rioJ, while the same remark applies to the n- xt deeade, although here there is a slight decrease from the one immediately before it. After tioadogge-l resignation seems to take the place of despair, and the number of sui- ido i-apidly diminhes. Now, if we take the population returns tor tl' last census, we shall iind that, out of nearly 36,W,0WL the lXMmlution of England and AVales, tho mtmher of men and women then in cxtstciuv, and aged 50 years and iu wards, is just aUmt .,7.Vl,lX)i, or rather more than oik seventh of the whole population; and we com? to the remarkable fact that tbi !der seventh furnishes at least half the nmnU-r of suicides. And this is surely a Mrangf fact w hich makes us speculate as to til-- possibility of making life more endurable to the rank and tile of liunuuiity, especially to those who are verging into years. The one encouraging tact is t hat, according to general testimony, the first stejis toward ;e are the won, rrom 4 to 50 has tjeen well called the old age of youth full of re grets and vain revolt against the inevitable. But tb. following decade, the youw ot old is often marked by renewed vigor and iiterprise, if only we are content to loiiow the advice of good old Hoy le, and play the stage of the ganw to follow the score that and not attempt a grand game when there enly tho Hld trick to be won.

In her garden are found the old time flow ers which charmed the grandmothers of New England years ago. The beds are arranged In the most tasteful horticultural fashion, and are at ail times clean and neat. At one end of the garden a little river winds along, adding beauty to the charming scene. Here is locah-d the vegetable garden, of w hich Mrs. Cooke is very fond, and to which she gives much attention. In these gardens is spent much of the authoress' time, arranging the flowers, cloaniiig the walks, and destroying the smallest weed that appears among ber flowers.

A carpet can be brightened and cleaned by scattering corn meal or salt over it and giving second sweeping. It should be thoroughly swept first, however.
