The practiso of law has never been considered a womanly occupation, bo cause of its profundity, and its possible deleterious effect upon the delicate organization of tho sex. Perhaps this was a masculine, rather than a femi nine idea, for a number havo dared to invado tho proscribed realm, and have acquitted themselves so credit ably, that tho fallacy of the standard opinion has been proved, It cannot bo denied that a homo life with its manifold duties, and helpful noss to tho family Is preferable for a woman ; In this sphere sho Is eminent ly useful, and Destiny has crowned ner its queen ; but thero aro always cir cumstances, and they are, at times very assertive aud Imperative. It often becomes an actual necessity for the woman to step out of tho home shelter and face tho world under other and moro trying conditions. Men aro frequently to blame for this, because of their Incompetency or unwillingness to provide for the family ; illness may al so prevent tho proper discharge of duty ; and, again, death may deprive the mother, sister or daughterof a sup port. These misfortunes aro common, and tho truo woman, who is ever ro sourceful, brave and confident, will not falter or fail. Tho study of law has attracted tho&o whoso mentalities aro strong and well regulated ; its depths, its intricacies, its difficulties have not Intimidated them, and in tho United States there are many successful practitioners. An earnest purpose and a worthy achievement deserve recognition, and tho greatest encouragement should be extended unto the brave women who have deeldcd to becomo laborers In this field Baltimore Telegram. "I had a runnlnc sore on mv lee for seven years," writes Mrs. Jas. Forest of Chippewa Falls, Wis., and spent several hundreds of dollars in trvino- to get it healed. Two boxes of Banner salve entirely cured it. Beware of substitutes. My observation has been that tho best educated women make the finest housekeepers. Of course, thy must have a fund of good common sense. I do not know any place where brain can do more service than in the every day routino of a housekeeper's life. I know that many persons think cul ture and a high order of Intellectual developement unfit a woman for tho commonplace homely duties of every day life Far from it. I know of just uch women who aro excellent man agers, are domestic and lovo their home, and are practical to the highest degree. I think a woman is less like ly to sacrifice herself and abuse her strength who knows something of anatomy and physiology and has been taught tho functions of her own body. She Is less apt to work day In and day out and make housework a drudgery. If she has brains she will consider her own body and how best to take care of it. I think often mothers and wives bring about the result of overwork through lack of knowledge, believe they can trifle with a mechanism finer than the most delicate instrument, and pay the. penalty with their lives. Juetlon Answered. Yes, August Flower still has the lar gest sale of any medicine In the civil ized world. Your mothers' and grand mothers' never thought of using any thing else for Biliousness or Indiges tion.
