A WORD TO FARM TOILERS.
PAINE S CELERY COMPOUND The Home Friend of the Farmer and His Family. After the lalors ami toils of the summer time, and harvesting of crops in the early autumn, many of our farmers, their wives, daughters, and sons, find themselves in a condition of health demanding careful attention if buffering is to be avoided later on. Many experience kidney trouble in some form; with some the liver is torpid; there is biliousness, nausea, and vomiting, with loss of appetite and depression of spirits. Thousands who have leen exposed to cold, damp winds and rains while toiling in the harvest fields, now feel the twinges of terrible rheumatism; others run down by worry, overwork, and irregular dieting, are tormented with the pangs of dyspepsia. To the thousands of run down, sickly, and half dead men and women in farm homes we recommend with all honesty and confidence the worker's friend, Taine's Celery Compound, the only medicine that can quickly and fully restore strength to the weak body and vigor to the muscles. Taint's Celery Compound tones the stomach; it removes poisonous acids from the blood which cause rheumatism; it feeds the weak and diseased nerves and banishes neuralgic tortures; it furif.es the blood and gives true vitality and life. The use of I'aine's Celery Compound in autumn means the estab lishing rf a perfect 1 yskal vigor to withstand the rigors of a severe winter. DIAMOND DYES for rMMren' clothe ar most serviceable.

Tbest desert lou Luve b?en so numerous la some localities us to sug gest the necessity of ome means of preventluif this premature withdrawal from the military service. Most officers who fubmlt reports ou the subject give reasons for the de sertions, but no explanation appears quite convincing. It Is certain there Is a dissatisfaction with the service, or course. In the case of recruits the rea son for desertion may be attributed to the realization of the mistakes they have made in enlisting, but losses in the artillery, for Instance, on the Ta el tie coat cannot be explained In that manner. On this point Cencial It. V. Hughes says: They certainly Indicate a lower or der of men than those enlisted prior to US'.iM. It would appear to be a wise policy to try to select recruits with greater care now that the number re quired has been so greatly reduced, and with Judicious activity of recruiting of fleers it seems possible to raise the standard of accepted recruits by look ing more carefully into their character and previous course of life." Wnftlilngtoii I.emU In l.elter Wrltliij The first place among American cities In the number of letters written and correspondingly In the amount of post Hi tariff paid to the national govern ment belongs by right to Washington. It Is explained here by the pleasant if conceited argument that everybody in Washington has friends. Probably the people who visit the capital annually and write to their friends hIhmh It con tribute a large share to the enormous postal revenue collected In the District of Columbia. The per capita expendi ture for postage of the residents of Washington amounts to $3.U annually. The Hstotliee here took in $i'J.Ll(5 last year. These figures are all the more remarkable when one considers the amount of franking done here, which ia enormous. To New York belongs the second position In the per capita ex penditure for postage, the annual rate in that state being $2.70, 4: cents be hind that in the District of Columbia. Senator Deprw's Cat. Among the cats that may compete In the Washington cat show Is n hand some gray fellow belonging to Senator Depew. The cat beans the name Tom. It Is not known whether or not he Is named for the senator's distinguished colleague from New York, but It can be said that Tom Is clever and tricky and devoted beyond measure to his master and mistress. That Tom can think can scarcely be doubted. He is very sagacious and frequently outwits his master. It is said he has learned to smile at the senator's Jokes. Tom has learned a trick that Is often shown to guests at the Depew home, l.'nder the dining room table Is an elec tric bell for the purpose of summoning a servant. Whenever Tom Is fastened up In the dining room he Immediately Jumps on this button and pushes It with great vigor until some one arrives and lets him out. Whether by accident or otherwise, Tom has learned that when ever the button under the table Is push ed some one enters the door, thus open ing it. In the IntereM of Veternna. Colonel Kmmet L'rell. Major Fred C. Hodgson and (5.

Vuen the Spanish War Veterans met in Detroit several mouths ago, a resolution asking that action of this kind be taken was passed. The president will take the matter up and will probably act favor ably upon the request. Ilrceptlona at the White llnnae. "1 have no doubt that all the recep tions this winter will be held In the White House," Colonel T. A. P.ingham. superintendent of public buildings and grounds, remarked. "The building Is in such condition that It will be possi ble to hold large functions there, but It certainly will be a good while before it is completed. The Incompleteness of the executive mansion will not dis courage the president, however. If he decides to use It for a large company, he will drive the workmen out, have some canvas laid and hold his recep tion. He Is not the sort to borrow trouble over decorations which are not complete." The President's Church. President Uuosevelt uud his family since they came to Washington have at tended the little brick chapel of the lie formed church, Fifteenth and O streets uorthwest. but now the president will soon have a new church to worship In, located next to the old chapel. The new house of worship Is called the (irace Memorial church, and the Indi cations are that the new edifice will be ready for the church congregation hy the holidays. Well Fed Animal. The United States government Is one of the largest buyers of meats, vege tables aDd provisions In Washington. Only the very big hotels expend any thing like the vast sum which goes from the United States treasury Into the market houses every month.

I never was completely laid up from it but often felt more like going to bed than anything vise. Many a one would have given up en tirely.

Three years ago during a severe attack a lady friend visiting from Grand IWnlds insisted upon me trying Doan's Kidney Pills, saving she knew a lady in Grand lUp ds wbo had been cured after the doc tors had given her up. I thought this a pretty strong recommendation and sent to Connell Bros, for a box and took them regularly. They proved to ne a valuable medicine. They cured me of the attack in a very short time. I have had slight recurrences since but a few doses of Doan's Kldnjy Pills never fails to ward off any serious trouble. I keep them in lbehouse most of the time.

When the bill was being paid, one of Grey's companions drew attention to a rather excessive charge which the landlord put against the eggs he had served to the party at break fast. Grey, who liked his little Joke, said on taking leave of the landlord, "lly the way, eggs seem to be rather scarce up here." "No," said the land lord, "It's governors that are earee."
