Worry pro duces nothing but wrinkles and -wretchedness. Let the reader put a note on her bureau, on her tfesk, and at the head of her bed, just two words. "Don't Worry"1 Worry is the greatest foe to the happiness of any house hold. An anxious, despond ent face, a fretful, complain ing voice, will make every one uncomfortable. A woman's nerves are more truly the cause of worry than outside troubles. The nerves are to a woman's body the telegraph system which surely warns her of any trouble in the feminine make-up. Doctor Pierce's Favorite Pre-' scripticn is the. ideal woman's tonic for such conditions. When a woman complains of backache, dizziness or pain ? when everything looks Hack before her eyes ? a dragging feeling, or bearing-down, with nervousness, she should turn to this "temperance" herbal tonic, known as Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. It can be obtained in almost every drug store in the land .and the ingredients are printed in plain English on the wrapper. Put up in tablets or liquid. Dr. Pierce's Invalids' Hotel, Buffalo, N .Y., will send a trial size of "Fa vorite Prescription" tablets for 10c. Also write Dr. Pierce for confi dential advice and you will receive the medical attention of a special! t, wholly without fee ? no charge whatever. MENTAL RELIEF IN DREAMS Averred by Scientists That They Act as a Sort of Safety Valve to the Emotions. A curious fact brought to light by the study cf dream, psychology Is that, as a rule, the really great and pro found sorrows of the day do not fol low us into the realm of sleep. In our dream of the night there is al ways some experience or thought of the day preceding which sets the dream machinery going. It Is true. It/ may be something which has only In cidentally been taken cognizance of by our waking consciousness and can only be traced back by a minute and care ful analysis of the dream. But, as a rule, the great sorrpw and anxiety of the day does not mingle with the -* dream emotions, say the scientists. This Is explained on the theory that our emotions with fegard to our great 1 and real affliction have been so ex hausted in our waking moments that they have not strength enough left to make themselves manifest amid the I throng of other and "less used up" emotions, which come trooping from their psychic lairs. "How often," says Goethe, "have I fallen asleep In tears, and beautiful forms and faces have come to give me peace and comfort in my dreams?' The mystics seem to have realized something of this long before the sci entists discovered it ; for they say that no matter what our waking for tunes may be, to dream of beauty is a most favorable omen. It means for the dreamer peace and plenty; suc cess In his enterprise and the love of those dear to him. In this connection may be mentioned the theory of the j scientists that dreams are necessary ' mental relief; a sort of safety valve to avoid the too high ? pressure of | those unnumbered thoughts and em'o I tlons which have accumulated in the ! psychic "unconscious"' and are always I seeking expression.

I was in bed for weeks, unable to gel up. 1 had such a weakness and dizziness, . . . ar.d the pains were ??ery severe. A friend told me I had tried every thing else, ? why not Cardui ? ... I did, and soon saw it was helping me". . . After 12 bottles, I am strong and well." Do you feel weak, diz zy, worn-out? Is your lack of good health caused from any of the com plaints so common to women? Then why not give Cardui a trial? It should surely do for you what it has done for so many thousands of other women who suffered ? it should help you back to health. Ask some lady friend who has taken Cardui.

Improperly Fed Child Is Under Handi cap From Start to Finish ? Result G.'ven of Experiment Re cently Made in Iowa. (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) The child fed improperly Is not get ting a square deal In this world, how rvor much else may be done for him l-.v his parents. From start to finish he is under a handicap, mentally and physically, when ir. competition with those who have been given the right kind of fond. Surprising as it may seem, statis tics show that the proportion of un? dernourished children in the better homes is large, just as it is in the homes of smaller incomes. The food served in the former may cost more and he in greater abundance, but it Is quite as apt to be unsuitable for a growing child. Wnpella county, Iowa, is- a prosper ous community where comfortable homes are the rule and not the excep tion. Ilecently the county nurse and the home demonstration agent, with the aid of ten volunteers, weighed and measured 2.1S9 children in the county. Of the children examined, 407 were below weight. Out of'n group of 137 children in rural districts, who were weighed, measured and inspected, ouly five were found to be normal. To illustrate what proper diet will do for a child, two nutrition classes were started in Ottumwa schools. In one were eight children, each from five to fourteen pounds underweight. They are being given one pint of milk dally for three months. One cupful is given in morning recess and one in the aft ernoon. At 1 lie other school, a lunch Is served, at 10:15 each morning to the class selected. It consists of a large dish of well-cooked oatmeal, with sugar and whole milk, a. glass of milk and graham crackers. The children are very eager for this plain whole some food. The records of gain are Interesting. Every child has made at least a two pound gain. One nine-year-old boy, six pounds underweight, has gained eight pounds; and .one eleven-year-old boy 17 pounds underweight and in ex tremely poor physical condition, has gained nine pounds, and his general health is much improved. FREQUENT SCALDING IS BEST To Keep Household Water "Vessels Clean and in Good Condition Much Care Is Needed. (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) The greatest care is required, to keep household water vessels clean and in good condition. Water coolers should he of some material, such n4s porcelain or enameled ware, which is easily kept clean. They should be scalded at frequent intervals. The ice. if it comes in contact with the water, should bo of known quality. Doubtful ice should be kept from con tact with the water. Many families cool drinking water by putting it in the ice box in glass fruit Jars or bot tles. Where it is believed or known that the water supply Is not pure, a filter should be used. If n filter is used every precaution should be taken tc keep it Wean and in good condition. United States department of agricul ture specialists suggest. An ^earthen ware filter may be cleaned by thor ough scrubbing with a brush. Then il should be placed in a pan or kettle oi water and boiled. A small piece oi wood should he placed under the jai to prevent direct contact with tht heated bottom of the pan. GOOD MEATFROM CHEAP CUTS Housekeeper Has Two ProblerVis to Contend With in Attempting to Reduce Expenses. (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) When the housekeeper "attempts tc* reduce her meat bill by using the less expensive cuts, she commonly has twe difficulties to contend ^ with ? tough meat and lack of flavor. Prolonged cooking softens the connective tissues of the meat. Poundiug the meat and chopping it are also employed with tough cuts to help break the muscle fibers. The flavor of meat, even in the least desirable cuts, may be developed by careful cooking, noticeably by browning the surface. Other flavors may be given by the addition of vege tables and by seasoning with condi ments of various kinds. Pineapple, hummus and nut meats are a good salad combination. ? * * Raisins are said to he richer in min eral matter than any other dried fruit; * ? * Lay rusty keys and lock in paraffin oil and leave them covered for a few days. ? ? * Kgg stains on silver may be re moved by rubbing with a little salt and damp cloth. AIRPLANE TO DEVELOP CHINA American Commercial Attache Points Out How Problem Facing That Country May Be Met The keynote of the great problem of development which Is facing China is transportation. The American com mercial attache at Peking, Mr. Julian Arnold, has laid emphasis on this in an article in the Chinese Recorder ? "China's Economic Problems and Christian Missionary Effort." Mr. Arnold deals with rite necessity of pre paring the Chinese people for the great economic change which is upon l hem. Railways will mean much to China, but the necessity for the train and preparation of which Mr. Arnold speaks is shown to lie dis tinctly urgent when Prof. Miildleton Smith's views on the use of airplanes to China are known. China is a land of waterways, ami these waterway* afford the necessary existing lines of transportation along which, to secure the success of commercial aviation, airdromes and supply depots should be established. Schools of technical training should supply the necessary Chinese skilled labor, and with these aerial services established, Professor Smith foresees such an incalculable increase In the rapidity of communica tions as completely to revolutionize the country internally and add to its deep importance as a world factor. HAD AN' OBJECT IN POSING Moose Didn't Stand for Her Photo graph Just to Accomodate the Camera Holder. A moose out in the wilds does not stop to pose for her picture. There is generally a reason for the peculiar actions of wild things. In the current Issue of the Hjunter-Trader-Trapper, published In Columbus, O., hunters write of their experience. "We had an early start Thursday and Sam soon proclaimed that his pipe foretold moose. The first bend was rounded and knee-deep in the water stood a fat sleek cow. Our canoe advanced toward her, the camera set for an exposure. Sam called softly and she advanced a hun dred feet toward us, ears erect, with a curious 'what are you' manner. "At 75 feet she stopped and posed for the picture, and then waited until we were 50 feet away before she turned into the woods. At the top of the bank she waited for us to pass be fore crashing into the timber. "Her action was explained when we turned the bend and at the water's edge saw her calf, a fine four or five months' old fellow, which climbed the bank and was away after her at once." New Cloth for Hard Wear. A new textile fabric which, It Is claimed, will tend to lower the present high cost of men's clothing is being placed on the market by a Pudsey (Yorkshire) manufacturer, writes United States Trade Commissioner Henry F. Grady from London. The London agents of the manufacturer state t hat the new cloth is made en tirely of silk noil (or short fibers) ; and that, while superior in wearing properties to a pure worsted, it can be sold at the price of -shoddy cloth, or one-fourth the price of the best wool fabrics. It is said to be strong and almost untearable, very suitable for hard wear, and can be obtained in grays, browns and blacks. No Novelty. "As I came frorti the station just now," said a recently arrived guest, "I noticed a crowd in front of the Right Place store and heard consider able yelliug. What was the excite ment?" "A farmer and the storekeeper were telling what ' they thought of each other's infernal hoggishness in want ing live prices for the stuff they had to sell," replied Uie landlord of the Petunia tavern. "But there wasn't any particular excitement ? it happens ev ery day. The crowd merely gathered in the hope that they might accident ally say something new and interest ing." ? Kansas City Star. Weds During His Lunch Hour. How to be married though working was the title of a little sketch staged the other day by E. W. Grieder, a printer ^employed on the St. Paul Dis-. patch. Grieder faced a problem. He was slated as a principal in a marriage ceremony. His only spare time was a half hour for lunch. So he called his fiancee. Miss Clara Lovitz. by telephone, arranged with her to meet him in the office of Henry OaMIck, court commissioner, and the ceremony ~ was performed. Grieder then took lunch and returned to work. Valuable Parasitic Fly. A recent agricultural department bulletin states that a parasitic fly compsilura clvlnnala, has been used with great success to destroy gypsy moth and brown-tail moth in New Eng iand. It will also aid in the control of other insect pests. A few years ago the white-marked tussock moth was it serious pest In New England, hut has practically disappeared since conipsi I ura became established. The cabbage worm, the celery worm and the fall webworm have all been reduced by the activities of tin- new parasite. Quick Action. I "The war made exceptional oppor tunities." "Yes; a fellow could begin at the bottom and at the same time go over the top." ' WELL OF MIRACULOUS PCWER Waters In Cornish Town of Llskeard Are Reported to Confer Pe culiar Benefits. In Cornwall, near the town of Lis keard, Is an ancient welt formerly supposed to be possessed of miracu lous powers. It Is the well of Saint Keyne, a pious virgin of the fifth cen tury. According to the story, firmly believed In by all &ood Cornish folk, the blessed damsM laid a spell upon the cooling wat^ of the spring and thereafter all wno drank of It became the masters of their own household?,' were they rsen or women. After 'tie death of Saint Keyne the tiny spring became the most vlsitd spot In Cornwall. Every young mar ried couple included It in their wtd ding trip. The poet Southey tells of an unusually foresighted bride who carried a bottle of the magic water to the church, forestalling her unfortu nate husband. The men of Cornwall themselves', .however, boast that they have refused to avail themselves of the blessings of the spring; that the.v are willing to submit to the rule of their wives. The precious waters, by the side of a dusty highway, are protected by a tiny sprlnghouse of stone, built by the Cornish folk of other days who were not ashamed to believe in the power of their spring. Their descendants have permitted the tiny building to crumble in neglect, forgotten by the roadside. Five huge trees curl their roots pro tectlngly about the fallen masonry ? two oaks, two ash and the elm of tra dition. They, are of the same spe cies, but are not the identical trees of the songs and poems. These an cient guardians of the holy well were blown down in a storm some 200 or 300 years ago. The trees of today were planted by .a worthy Cornish squire early in the eighteenth century. ? "Niksah," in Chicago Daily News. HAVE HIGH MILITARY TITLE Three Men Hold Commissions From Uncle Sam as Full Generals In His Armies. This Is the first time in the history of the United States that the nation has had three full generals at the same time. Of course, \ye have a number bearing the prefixes of lieu tenant, major or brigadier-general, but they do not wear four-starred shoulder straps. The three fortunate leaders are Tasker H. Bliss, Peyton C. March, chief of staff, and John J. Pershing, commandcr of the American forces In France. Only these four have pre ceded them as holders of the highest rank: George Washington, Ulysses S. Grant, William Tecumseh Sherman and Philip II. Sheridan. The capture of Vicksburg on the Fourth of July, 1863, won Grant the title of major-general. The victory at Chattanooga in the following Novem ber caused him to be made lieutenant general and commander in chief. In July, 1S6(5, congress rewarded the hero with the rank of general when he was only 44 years old. Just before his In auguration as president in March, 18G9, he resigned from the army and was succeeded as general by* William Te cumseh Sherman. In 1883 Sherman resigned as commander In chief of the army, and was succeeded by "Little Phil" Sheridan, who three years later was advanced to lieutenant-general, then made a full general just before his death In-18S3.? Carl Schurz Low den. In Need of Repair. Many years ago I attended a wed ding in Cripple Creek, Colo., writes a correspondent of Chicago Tribune. All was progressing gayly until the bridegroom was called upon to pro duce the ring. In vain he felt In his trousers pocket ; nothing could be found except a hole through which the ring had evidently fallen Into his boot. lie glared helplessly around the assembled guests. "Take off your boot," ordered his prospective mother-in-law. The young miner hesitated, the suspense and si lence were painful. "Take off your boot," again can^e in strident tones, as the eld lady crowded forward In a threatening manner. The young fellow reluctantly pulled off his boot, the ring was found ? also a huge hole in the stocking through which five toes protruded. -A painful silence ensued ? but again the efficient old lady saved the day by remarking: "Sam, it's high time you mere mar ried." ' Electric Transmission. How different it is now, in the trans mission of electric power, from what It was, say, 25 ye<ir:; ago, when there had to lie relay stations for the trolleys every ten miles or so. For example, In California, physical connection of three' large hydro-electric systems has been made by mer.ns of which power gen erated near the California-Oregon line is tnmsmitted-conlinuously for a dls*. lance of 300 miles to the San Francisco liny region. Experts were wont to say in the nineties that nothing like this could be done. lint it is being done, and experts are now proclaiming that other and .greater things contemplated in electric' power tiansmission are Im possible. Time will perhaps show that they are not. She Didn't Get the Idear. Wifie (to husband who has econom ically switched from cigars to stogies) ? "Albert Pennyrojal Jones, you have deceived me again.

RURAL SURVEY OF 1 VITAL IMPORTANCE: * Religious Statistics Are Secured From County To Be Used By ' Local Churches HEARTY CO-OPERATION ASKED 1 f t Information To Be Gathered In Every Part Of The County According To , Communities Will Have Large ; Significance The rural survey department of th? Interchurch World Movement has N been organized to assemble informa tion and analyze conditions from a religious standpoint in every county iii the state, according to Dr. James Buchanan, Rural Survey Supervisor for the state of Virginia, with head quarters at 1030 Mutual Building, Rich mond, Va. i In order for the churches of a com munity to carry on their work of N evangel zing the territory in which they are situated and to contribute their shard towards the complete evangelization of the world, which is the ideal in every Christian heart, it is necessary that the actual condi tions which exist in each county be discovered. Because of the vital hn-; portance of this work, the movement is calling upon the pastors of all de nomination&~and others who are in formed relative to religious conditions to render all the assistance possible towards the. completion of the work. This information, after being tabu lated by experts, is taken back to the counties, where the several Protestant, denominations with churches in the ccunty co-operatively study it and de cide on the county's church needs. Recommendations are made by the county churches of each denomina tion that so desires, to the denomi national heme mission, Sunday school and other beards so that these boards, can co-operate intelligently and effeo-' tively with the local county church orp-an'zatirns. The Interchurch World Movement is attempting to do its work on a democratic basis. It is neither dictat ing nor attempting to dictate to any church or denomination what shall be done. The denominations in each county must decide unanimously among themselves on any joint coun ty program for church betterment be-j fore it is adopted or undertaken with the co-operation of the Interchurch' World Movement. The survey depart ment is designed to help build up and meet the needs of the local churches through the local and county denomi national interests. An Intorchurch World Movement survey cf a county develops facts as to the county's geographical location and the goner:1.! character of its agricul tural, commercial and industrial life, it3 road system and means of inter communicaticn, public school system. and~othe;- educational institutions, wel fare and benevolent institutions, *iner organizations and individuals engag ed in public service for the entire county. , Accompanying a general survey of a county is a more detailed survey of each community, a community being regarded as a unit of territory and population characterized by common economic and social experiences and interests. "The community survey designates the outline and location of the com munity on information acquired from storekeepers, bankers and other in* formed persons. Territory not defi nitely included within the limits ol any trade community is considered in connection with the communities to which it is contiguous and to which it is most closely related. Thus no area is omitted in the enumeration of population and other statistical in formation. The survey takes account : of the community's economic condi tions, such as natural resources, chief sources of income, soil, climate and market conditions, relations of farm ers and business men, industrial data, etc. The social life and organizations of the community are covered In de tail, together with other information to throw light on the state of the so cial mind. The third link in the survey chain-' is the survey of each church in each ? community. This sets out the loca tion, denomination, minister, date of organization, descriptive data as to buildings and equipment, membership, regular and special meetings and tab ulated results therefrom, statistics as to area covered by the parish, number of families reached, parish problems and other data' to give a comprehen sive vision of the parish, and supple mented by information as to the pro. gram cf worl; outlined for the church by the past*. . and the official boards. The triple surveys ? county, com munity and church ? assemble all in formation that may be needed to aid the individual churches and denomi nations in, working out their present problems and future programs of de velopment, so that wasted effort may be eliminated and unproductive ac tivities of each denomination may J>e transferred to productive fields. The need of such a systematic study cf church conditions is apparent by the 'results of investigation already made in some sections of the South, if the churches are to accomplish the greatest possible amount of good. The conditions found to exist in some quarters are rather startling. In one county in the South, for instance, there are 44 churches, of which 14 are dead and only 16 of which main lain Sunday schools.
