Wasn’t that a beautiful spirit that

FOR IDLE MOMENTS.
Avery pretty holder for lingerie
ribbons is made by cutting out of
cardboard four circles, three inches
in diameter, and covering them
smoothly on one side, with flowered
silk or white linen. Overhand two
and two together, then place one or
two bolts of baby ribbon between
these covers and with a coarse silk
thread fasten them securely together.
Make a rosette of baby ribbon and
sew on to cover the stitches on one
side; then place a tiny bow of the
same ribbon on the other side. Put
a pretty bodkin through the rosette
and the gift is completed.
Pretty hair receivers are made of
linen, any color. A piece nine inches
square is bound with white tape or
ribbon. Lap this over cornucopia
style and hold in position by buttons
and loops. A double bow at the top
forms the hanger.
For the baby an attractive rattle
is made upon a small embroidery
hoop. It is wound closely with any
delicate covered ribbon; an inch wide
is a good width, and crossed with
bands of the same, to which bright
vari-colored metal bells are sewed.
A rice pincushion is just the thing
for hatpins. A half a yard of ribbon
four inches wide is folded and the
edges overhanded together. Stitch
the ribbon up the center to within
two inches from the top, then divide
each half and stitch again and there
will be four compartments. Fill these
with rice and stick across the open
ings to secure the rice. Gather the
top and fringe the ends, then tie with
narrow ribbon. —Ex.

Value of the Silo.
We have at different times tried
to emphasize the importance of a
silo to all cattlemen. The following,
from Wallace’s Farmer, shows the es
timation in which silos are held by
western cattlemen:
No man is rich enough or poor
enough to get along without a pure
bred bull at the head of his herd if
he is a cattle feeder or dairyman with
a herd of ten or more cows. The
same thing is true of the silo. A
few years ago we had a dry season
and our meadows did not yield over
half a ton of hay to the acre. I had
a large herd of pure bred Short-horns.
Blooded stock for a few years was
very low. With the drouth I could
not get more than they were worth
for beef. To avoid sacrificing the cat
tle I built a rectangular silo of wood,
according to the practice then in
vogue, and filled it with cut corn. It
paid for itself the first year, but the
next year the silage did not keep as
well, and the silo leaked air more and
more until I had to give it up and did
not fill it. Finally I put cleats in the
corners and rounded them and lined
the whole with brick, cementing the
inside of the brick and then putting
on a fine coat of cement with a brush,
so as to make it water-tight and air
tight. I now have a silo nearly as
good as if it was round and the silage
is. perfect. I believe there are many
old silos standing around which were
ouilt in the way mine was that could
oe utilized to good advantage in this
way and thus save the expense of
ouilding entirely new.
If you are going to build a silo
>y all means make it round. I am
;onvinced that the best way, and the
;heapest in the long run, is to build
of brick or stone. Where the barn
is on a side hill, or there is a base
ment for the stock, the ground should
oe excavated three or four feet below
the feeding floor and the silo built
up with dead air space. A silo built
in this way is nearly frost-proof and
costs but little more than if built of
wood. It is practically everlasting.
It should be reinforced with steel
hoops around the outside.
We are making brick of sand and
Portland cement. It makes very
strong brick and seems to be water
proof and air-proof and in every way
setter than brick made of clay. The
cost is but very little more. A silo
ifteen feet in diameter on the inside
and thirty feet deep is large enough
tor forty head of cattle, if fed only
m winter; when larger than this there
s too much surface unless you have
1 very large herd of cattle. It will
sot do to feed too heavily on silage
when stock is turned out of the barn
in cold weather, neither is it econom-

HOSTS OF GOOD PEOPLE
AD Oyer This Blessed Land Rise Up and Praise Dr. Pierce’s Family Medicines.
Common Gratitude Prompts This Sentiment in Favor of
Dr. Pierce’s Medicines.
These people, so ready and anxious to recommend Dr. Pierce’s Medicines,
have themselves been cured, or some friend or loved one has -been cured, by
Naturally, a sense of gratitude prompts such persons to
recorpmend Dr. Pierce’s medicines to other afflicted ones. Notwithstanding
that these .medicines have been on general sale, in drug and medicine stores,
for more than two decades, yet their sale continues to grow as it could not were
they n/)t medicines of more than ordinary merit
Afthougn base attacks have sometimes been made upon Dr. Pierce’s medi
cinesywhich temporarily injured their sale, as in the case of the maliciously,
false, stefcdelous and libelous article published in 1904 in the Ladies’ Home
Journal yet their sale is greater to-day than ever. The pub
lishers of that paper were brought to account and judgment obtained against
them in constjhuence of their malicious article concerning Dr. Pierce’s Favorite
Prescription. The falsity of its statements were proven in own ormrt. and
world a full list of the ingredients entering into his medicines, and this com
pletely confounded his malicious traducers and vindicated both the Doctor and
nis medicines. In consequence, his medicines have enjoyed a popularity and
increase in sale of late, amounting almost to a boom, and it is believed that this
greatly increased demand is due largely to the fact of Dr. Pierce’s open, honest
way of treating his patrons and patients by reposing confidence in those who
trust in him and his medicines. He has no secrets to withhold from them.
He publishes the composition of his medicines openly and above board, so that
all who use them may know exactly what they are taking. Thus they are
placed in a class all by themselves and cannot be considered as either secret or
patent medicines, for they are in fact neither.
WHAT THEY CURE. People often ask
"What do Dr. Pierce’s two leading med
icines—‘Golden Medical Discovery* and
‘Favorite Prescription * cure ? ”
Briefly, the answer is that "Golden
Medical .Discovery ” is almost notent al
terative, or blood-purifier, and-tonic, or
Invigoratoy. and acts especially favorably
n a curative wav urimi all The mncoifs
Jning surfaces, as of the nasal passages,
throat, bronchial tubes, stomach, bowels
and bladder curing a large percentage of
catarrhal cases wnether the disease af
fects the nasal passages, the throat,
larynx, bronchia, stomach (as catarrhal
dyspepsia), bowels (as mucous diarrhea),
bladder, uterus or other pelvic organs.
Even in the chronic or ulcerative stages
of these affections, It is generally success
ful In affecting cures. In fact the "Golden
Medical Discovery ” Is without doubt, the
most successful constitutional remedy for
all forms of catarrhal diseases known to
modern medical science. In chronic
Nasal Catarrh Dr. Sages Catarrh Remedy
fluid should be used for washing and
cleansing out the fisal passages while
taking the "Discovery” for its blood
cleansing ar 1 specific, healing effects
upon the mucous lining membranes. This
combined local and general treatment will
cure a very large percentage of the woYst
cases of chronic nasal catarrh, no matter
of how many years’ standing they may be.
Asto the "Favorite. Prescription J! It la
advised-ion.tne cure of one class of dis
eases only—those weaknesses, derange
ments aria irregularities peculiar to
women. It is a powerful, yet gently act
ing, Invigorating tonic and nervine. For
weak, worn-out, over-worked women—no
matter what has caused the break-down.
"Favorite Prescription” will be found
most effective in building up the strength,
regulating the womanly functions, sub
duing pain and bringing about a healthy,
strong, vigorous condition of the whole
system.
Dr. Pierce believes that our American
forests abound In most valuable medi
cinal roots for the cure of most of our
obstinate and most fatal diseases, if we
would properly investigate them; and,
in confirmation of this firm conviction,
he points with pride to the almost mar
velous cures effected by his "Golden Med
ical Discovery,” which has proven itself
to be the most efficient stomach tonic,
liver invigorator, heart tonic and regu
lator, and blood cleanser known to med
ical science. Not less marvelous, in the
unparalleled cures It is constantly mak
ing of woaiß'i many peculiar affec
ical feeding to make silage the entire
ration. With good clover hay and
plenty of silage a cow will produce as
much in the winter as in summer in
the same length of time.
I am feeding some steers as well
as my blooded stock, and find that to
every bushel of corn a half bushel of
silage makes them grow faster, and
keeps their skins looser and hair
softer than when fed on corn alone.
With a little bran added I find they
are growing faster than I have ever
before had them do on corn alone. I
feed silage to my sheep, hogs, and
horses, and know it is good for them.
It takes the place of roots. Cows and
steers will leave hay and mill feeds
to eat the silage.
tions, weaknesses and distressing derange
ments, is Dr. Pierce’s Favorite Prescript
tion, as is amply attested by thousands
of unsolicited testimonials contributed by
grateful patients who have been cured by
it of leucorrhea, painful periods, irregular
ities, prolapsus and other displacements,
ulceration of uterus and kindred affec
tions, often after many other advertised
medicines had failed.
Both these world-famed medicines are
wholly made up from the glyceric ex
tracts of native, medicinal roots, found
in our American forests. The processes
employed in their manufacture were
original with Dr. Pierce, and they are
carried on by skilled chemists and phar
macists with the aid of apparatus and
appliances specially designed and built
for this purpose. Both medicines are
entirely free from alcohol and all other
harmful, habit-forming drugs. A full
list of their ingredients is printed on each
of their wrappers. They are both made
of such native medicinal roots as have
received the strongest endorsement and
praise for their curative virtues from
the most prominent writers on Materia
Medica in this country. What is said of
their power to cure tne several diseases
for which they are advised may be
easily learned by sending your name
and address to Dr. R. V. Pierce, Buffalo,
N. Y., for a little booklet which he has
compiled, containing copious extracts
from numerous standard medical books,
which are consulted as authorities by
physicians of the several schools of prac
tice for their guidance In prescribing. It
is free to all. A postal card request
will bring it.
You don’t have to rely solely upon the
manufacturer’s say-so as to the power of
Dr. Pierce’s medicines to cure, as with
other medicines sold through druggists.
You have the disinterested testimony of
a host of the leading medical writers
and teachers. Send for this copious
testimony. It can be relied upon to
be truthful because it is entirely dis
interested.
Dr. Pierce’s Pleasant Pellets cure con
stipation. Constipation is the cause of
many diseases. Cure the cause and you
cure the disease. One "Pellet” is a
gentle laxative, and two a mild cathar
