Arbitration Still a Live Question.
Chicago 'Times-Herold" flttU) No one who heard Air. McKinley'fl al? lusions to the subject of arbitration in the course of his inaugural address, knowing the steadiness of the President's purpose when his mind is made up, could believe that one defeat in the Senate would end the negotiations between this country and England. The information now comes direct that smother arbitration treaty is preparing and that when completed and accepted by the British Government it will be presented to Congress at the regu? lar session. We may hope that the Sena? tors will have gained in wisdom sufficiently by that time to pass the treaty. Their recent action was in defiance of popular sentiment expressed by every known agen? cy. But whether this Senate bows to the inevitable or in sheer malice again de'.ays the ratification of the treaty, it is safe to predict that Mr. McKinley will not aban? don his intention of creating permanent l>eace between the United States and England while he occupies the Presiden? tial chair.

Mr. Williams was forced to abandon active work because ol ill health. While here recuperating for work next winter, he will sell by subscrip? tion a book entitled "Kings of the Plat? form and Pulpit.'' From an examination of the prospectus we know it is an excel? lent work. It has received the endorse meats of a number of distinguished gentle men, among which we found the following: "This'Kings of the Platform and Pulpit' gives the wisdom, wit and theology of a whole nation for a century. It is full of the best Southern humor, and every family in my south country will be happier and wiser with it. It is the last book in my library that I would part with. "Frzhugh Lke." "I read 'Kings of the Platform and Pulpit' with as much pleasure as Kitzhugh Lee. It is a bright, interesting and agree? able book. Wade Hamitox."

It will help to keep the horses with a good appetite if tho boxes and man? gers are cleaned ont before fresh food is put in them. The growing pig should never be al? lowed to fall off in condition sufficient to retard its growth, but should be kept growing steadily until maturity. While, with the majority of farmers, pasturing can be depended upon very largely during the summer, yet when it Is an item to keep as much stock as tho pastures will carry, it will be found good economy to grow some soiling crops.?Farmers' Union.

Coal tar is the base of this rem? edy, and when too thick to spread well, use more coal oil; when too thin to ad? here well use more coal tar.

Special forms of suffering lead many a woman to acquire the mor? phine habit. One of these forms of suffering is a dull, persistent pain in the side, accompanied by heat and throbbing. There is disinclination to work, because work only increases the pain. This Is only one symptom of a chain of i troubles; she has others she cannot bear to confide to her physician, for fear of an examination, the terror of all sen? sitive, modest women. The physician, meantime, knows her condition, but cannot combat her shrinking terror. He yields to her supplication for something to relieve the pain. He gives her a few mor? phine tablets, with very grave cau? tion as to their use. Foolish wo? man! She thinks morphine will help her right along; she becomes its slave! A wise and a generous physician had such a case; he told his patient he could do nothing for her, as she was too nervous to undergo an examination. In despair, she went to visit a friend. She said to her, " Don't give yourself up; just go to the nearest druggist's and buy a bottle of Mrs. Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. It will build you up. You will begin to feel better with the first bottle." She did so, and after the fifth bottle her health was re? established. Here is her own letter about it: I was very miserable; was so weak that I [3 could hardly get around the house, could not do any work without feeling tired out. My monthly periods had stopped and I was so tired and nerv? ous all of the time. I was troubled very much with falling of the womb and bearing-down pains. A friend advised me to take Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound; I have taken five bot? tles, and think it is the best medicine I ever ?^used. Now I can work, and feel like myself. J used to be troubled greatly with my head, but I have had no bad headaches or palpita? tion of the heart, womb trouble or bearing-down pains, since I com? menced to take Mrs. Pinkham's medicine. I gladly recommend the Vegetable .Compound to every suffering woman. The use of one bottle will prove what it can do."?Mrs. Lucy Peasley, Derby, Center, Vt.
