It is the same old friend to which the old folks pinned their faith and were never dis appointed. But another good recom mendation for it is, that it is better than Pills, never gripes, never weak ens, but works in such an easy and natural way, just like nature itself, that relief comes quick and sure, and one feels new all over. It never fails. Everybody needs take a liver remedy, and everyone should take only Sim mons Liver Regulator. I5c sure you get it. The Red Z is on the wrapper. J. H. Zeilin & Co., Philadelphia, SHE MADE HOME HAPPY. "She made home happy !" These few words I read Within a churchyard, written on a etono ; Xo name, nor date, the simple words alone Told me the story of the unknown dead. A marble column lifted high its head. Close by, inscribed to one the world had known, But, ah ! that lonely grave, with moss o'er grown, Thrilled me far more than his who armies led. "She made home happy !" Through the long sad years The mother toiled, and never stopj:ed to rest Until they crossed her hands upon her breast, And- closed her eyes, no longer dim wi th tears. fhe simiilp. record that she left hehirul Was grander than the soldier's to ray mind. Henry Coyle. Milk as a Diet. Sc-K'idii'.c A mcriea a. I recently tried the experiment of iving thirty days with only sweet milk as a nourishment. At the begin- ning i had no Uiincuuy m cuanginn mv diet from solid food to liquid. Du ring the thirty days of the experiment lost five and one-half pounds in weight, but I lo.it no strength. I thin-: I lost the weight because the weather was warm, and because I took so much exercise, l roue a oicycie consiuenni during the time, and used 10-pound dumb bells and other heavy weights -r 1 . 1 1 11.. every day except puimas.j x km,. i s i C .1 T much more exercise than 1 usually take, as 1 was aetcrmineu to rest no thing fairly. On the seventh day of the experiment I ran several foot races with a skillful runner, and was beaten in each race. On the thirtietn day i ran some more races with the same person, but did better than in the first races. This proves that I lost no trength. I took four pints of milk daily for the first three weeks of the experiment, and five pints daily for the last week. I think that a healthy per- son snouio. laneiiuuumtu . ... daily when no other food is being tak- en. r ursuiK iih . two hours during the day, commenc ing at seven o'clock at night.

I believe that a man could live for any length of time, and take heavy exercise all the while, with no other food than sweet milk. IT. F. White, M. D. Crawfordvillo, Ind. Itls not always the one who makes the most noise who accomplishes the most. AX OBJECTIONABLE MAX NEGATIVE, STUBOBN, SUSPI CIOUS. Dispcsiticns GrcTipsd. Xorfolk Pilot. Whatever ma' be the individual re sources and however self-reliant and wise the individual improvement in any direction for one's sell or for oth ers demands wise co-operation and concerted action. Whether for coun sel or active aid, there are some men who always inspire confidence and en courage united action. In contemplat ing the work in hand or to be under taken, we instinctively turn to such men for both sympathy and help. In so doing we have no apprehension that confidence will be betrayed, or that any honorable purpose will be thwarted. On the other hand, there are men who do not invite confidence, whose co-op-peration we do not seek, and whose aid, if deemed necessary, we solicit with misgiving. These men, possessing various char acteristics and types, may be generally described as objectionable men. Some of these might be grouped as men con stitutionally incompetent to further any great venture. As particulars of this group there are negative men men who may represent potential powers, which from some cause never become active. "Whatever their abilities or their convictions, there seems to be an inherent apathy and torptdity that cannot bo overcome. If peradventure these men are in posi tion they represent the possibilities, but not the actualities of their places. If they are not in position they would halt a procession and check the charge of an army corps to find out their par ticular place in the rank. The negative man may stand for the dignity, but never for the duties of an office, and in any practical movement for the improvement of men they have the inertia of stocks and stones. Allied to this type is the equivocal man. In the case of his predecessor the difficul ty is to get into position and to secure positive action after getting in. But the equivocal man has no place j he is an unknown quantity, and if he repre sents anything you cannot ascertain what it is, and if he has any uses they have not yet been determin ed. This man is not available for any good thing, either for himself or for others. He can neither be placed or used in any great movement for hu manity. This group are practically worthless for concerted action. There is anoth er subordinate class, and among them is the stubborn man, who may be hon est, intelligent .and inclined to well do ing, but he is constitutionally refracto ry and has the resistive force that be longs to the self-willed. He is not firm, because firmness is a quality that acts for a reasonable consideration, does not assume a position wunoui. careau ... . i x t.. i thought and adheres to it from a con viction of right. 'Whereas the stub born man sticks in the place assumed, because he has assumed it and makes no concession to the wisdom of his as sociates. In an emergency he may subserve a good purpose, but as a rule he is a clog and an obstruction in all movements in which he participates. Allied to the stubborn is the suspi cious man. This character is generally b0rn inherits narrowness and the ten dency to discredit the motives of oth ers unless absolutely informed of all the details pertaining thereto. Credulity is an element m the suspicious charac ter, and the inherited narrowness that supplies the root of suspicion is strengthened and confirmed by the de ceptions and disappointmens that the credulous qualities introduce into the man's life. The suspicious man may, nrovidentiallv. serve a purpose, but L 7 - - - generally he breeds dissension in the ranks and is a hindrance rather than an advantage in the the movements in which he is engaged. There is still another group that in tervene in all concerted movements. Conceding integrity to this group, they are the most hurtful of any of the gen eral class of obstructionables. Among them is the premature man, who, act- ing upon his impu!-e3 and inadequate ly conceiving the gravity of his ven tures, bring' defeat by precipitating a battle before the reformatory forces are placed and ready for actum. Like a thoughtless, impulsive oilicer in corn bat, he uncovers his own line of battle prematurely and reveals fo the enemy information as to his movements that gives them an advantage in making at tack. Another of this clas is the sinister man, who keeps up a personal purpose back of and different from the com mon one that elicits his co-operation ; who is not frank either in his move ments or in his aims; who subordi nates the interest of h;s general move ment to the success of the personal ; who does not seek to defeat the genenl movement, and is not unfriendly to it, but will defeat it rather than sacrifice some individual end in which he is in terested. The premature man unin tentionally, thoughtlessly and impru dently may bring disaster upon an un dertaking or movement and yet be per fectly honest in purpose, but the sinis ter one is untrustworthy in every exi gency where there is possibility of a clash between his personal aims and the broader and better aims ot concert ed action. Success demands positive and une quivocal characters, firmness and con ciliation, prudence and unselfishness, and where these qualities are lacking all movements are handicapped and embarassed. Yet even these difficul ties can be surmounted and must be overcome in the actions that look to the advancement and protection of the interest of the individual and society, and these obstructions should not dis courage, but simply call forth a larger, more patient and more persistent effort for humanity from us. Fores Exerted "by the Human Jaws. Scientfic American. Dr. G. V. Blask. a dentist of Jackson ville, Fla., has made some interesting experiments upon the force exerted by the human jaws in the ordinary masti cation of lood, and also the greatest force which the jaws are capable oi exerting. By means of a spring instrument provided with a registering device he took records of about 150 "bites" of different persons. Of these, fifty have been preserved as characteristic of the ordinary man, woman and child. The smallest pressure recorded was .'30 pounds, ;by a little girl seven years old. This was with the incisors. The high est record was male by a physician of thirty-five. The instrument used only registered 270 pounds, and he simply closed it together without apparent ef fort. There was no method of deter mining how far above 270 pounds he could have gone. This test was made with the molars. Several persons ex ceeded a force of 100 pounds with the incisors and 200 with the molars. The physical condition of the persons ex perimented upon seemed io have a lit tle bearing upon the result. Dr. Black is of the opinion that the condi tion of the peridental membranes is the controlling factor, rather than muscu lar strength. Dr. Black found that, in the habitu al chewing of food, much more force is exerted than is necessary. In chewing a piece of beef steak, the crushing point of which was from 10 to 4i pounds, from 00 to 80 pounds stress was actually employed at each thrust of the teeth. The principal articles of food tested had crushing points as fol lows : Steak, 40 to 45 pounds ; mut ton chops, 35 to 40 pounds ; broiled ham, 45 to GO pounds ; roast beef, 45 to 60 pounds ; pork chops, 20 to 25 pounds, and the choicest parts of cold broiled beef tongue, 3 to 5 pounds. The tough er parts of beef and mutton required a crushing force of 00 pounds m some instances. Begin slow ; it is the pace at the end of the race that wins. When Ba'oy waa nclr, re are her Cartorla.

The stand of cotton i jd-o imierfect, but the cotton plant him facilities for spreading out in the open ing, which corn does not enj'jy. But with it all our jeople may realize full crops. Last year, as all will recall, the season was very unpropitious, and yet the crops of corn and cotton, especially, were the largest for years. Farmers, generally, are getting their lands in a good state ot cultivation by deep plowing and regular fertilizing, so that the soil responds readily to good seasons and the crops grow rapidly. With indifferent preparation of the soil last year the crops would have been a failure, as it was they were a gratify ing success. This is to the credit of the thoroughness of the farmers. The Great Business Revival. Norfolk Viryinii n. The "Wilson tariff, says the Washing ton Pont, is giving a gocxl account of itself in all quarters. The improve ment in trade and manufactures is so marked, the evidences of returning prosperity are so numerous and con vincing that the voico of the croaker is no longer heard in the land. Since last April more than iJOO manufactur ing establishments have, of their own motion, increased the wages of more than 500,000 workmen. There is less disquiet in labor circles than there has been at any time during the pa.-t ten years. The iron industry is the be.-t guage of business. When that is pros perous all other industries are general ly in good condition. As an indication of the effects of the new tariff on this guage, it is stated that since January last, Bessemer pig iron in Pittsburg has advanced from 10.00 per ton to $1 2.50 ; steel billets commanded then $14.75 and to-d-ry they market at $ 1. 00 ; gray forging bar is now worth $10. 85, and the best refined bar iron has increased to if'2S, an advance of -f 3.3.5. The wages of labor in the furnaces and mills and in the coal region have cor respondingly advanced. Two "Wonderful Boys. Wilmington Menxengrr. Out West there are two very youth ful evangelists, both Baptists. Iryin Leake, of Illinois, is 17 years old. He is pastor of the First Baptist church at Mount Carmel, 111., the youngest in the United .States. lie is reported as gifted with oratory. Ray York, but .13, was lorn in Missouri. He showed marked piety when not 0 years of age. He is fairly well educated and is still at school. He joined the Baptists in 1804. He soon showed gifts and bent for evangelistic work. He has beendi censed to preach by a Chicago church, but desires to prosecute his studies be fore ordination, and expects to attend the .Southern Baptist Theological Sem inary at Louisville, after first attending William Jewell college in Missouri. The Chicago Record says of this infant prodigy : 'Even when a mere child his strong religious trend began to develop. When visiting his friends or when visited by them, his favorite pastime was to pl.:y 'meeting.' He would not only talk and pray himself, but would encourage them to do the same." That reminds us of tho laie eloquent Rev. Thomas G Lowe, the orator of the Ijeautiful. When a little fellow he used to mount the rail fence and preach to the negro children who stood in front. That was in the parental home five miles from Enfield, in Hali fax county. THROW IT AWAY. rr :.-i if : fiuktit.m' '1 r. .- tl t:, tvr r x u'-v.
