Attention In time to any irregularity of the Stomach, Liver, or Bowels may prevent serious consequences. Indigestion, costiveness, headache, nau- ,sea, bilious. )ness, and ver tigo indicate certain func tional derange, ments, the best remedy for which is Ayer's Tills. Purely vege table, sugar-coated, easy to take and quick to assimilate, this is the ideal family medicine the most popular, safe, and useful aperient in phar macy. Mrs. M. A. 13kockwell, Harris, Tenn., says: - "AVer's Cathartic rills cured me of sick headache and my husband of neuralgia. We thluk there is No Better Medicine, and have induced many to use It. ' Thirty-five years ago this Spring, I was run down by hard work and a succession of colds, which made me so feeble that it was an effort for me to walk. I consulted the doctors, but kept sinking lower until I had jilven up nil hope of ever being better. Happening to be in a store, one dajvwhere medicines were sold, the proprietor noticed my weak and sickly appearance, and, after a few questions as to my health, recom mended me to try Ayer'a Fills. I had little faith in these or any other medicine, but concluded, at last, to take his advice and try box. Before I had used them all, I was very much better, and two boxes cured me. 1 am now 80 years old ; but I believe that if it had not been for Ayer's Pills, I should have been in my grave long ago. I buy 6 boxes every year, which make 210 boxes up to this time, and I would no more be with out them than without bread." H. H. Ingraham, Eockland, Me. AYER'S PILLS Prepared by Dr. J. C.

THE REFORMER; BRAT TLEBORO, VT FRtDAY, JULY 28, 1893. How to Care for a Paintbrush. Never leave It standing long la the pilnt nor allow It to dry before being washed. One used frequently may stand In water or oil, but one seldom needed shiuld be thoroughly washed after each using. Brushes often washed mav be claansed In soda dissolved In cold water, then place brush end up to dry. A brush washed but once or twice a year Is cleansed best by rubbing It well with soft soid in warm water. A little turpentine will remove all paint. The brush Is tben rinsed and tbe bristles straightened and shak en so they will not dry together. Proper Soil for Wheat. Wheat requires a fertile toll, not so rich that all tbe life Is spent In producing a luxu rious growth of straw, but a good sttnd for fair height with sufllclent strength to pre vent lodging. For winter wheat the sell should be raiher dry, as the seed must with stand tbe frost and 'snow of winter and thaws and freezing of spring. No soli can be culti vated too fine. A bushel and one-halt of seed corn per acre Is sufficient to give a thick stand and secure a goou yieiu. w inter wneai may be sown from Sept. 15 te Oct. 1. For wheat tne seed may be sown as early as tbe seed may be sown as earlv as the weather will permit; Ihe earlier the better. Tbe time of harvest varies from Oct. 15 to Aug. 1. Orsin thould not be allowed to stand very long after jlpenlng. If rut before ripe It Is apt to shrink and lose in weight. Tbe preparations of the soli and Its cultivation for barley, oats, rye and flax are similar to that of wheat. 40tf C. E. SKINNER, tot, Hewfane. We want to sell one thousand barrels of Flour next month. Now is a good time to buy because we are selling It VERY LOW, and It will be much better than that made later on from new wheat. Don't be at All bashful about Inquiring price If you are not a regular customer, for we shall not feel "'hurt" if you don't see fit to buy anything beside the Flour, for we don't '-make It up" on something else.

It Is very easy to get a fair hatcb, but tbe trouble Is proper care afterward. Turkeys do not cat much until they are two or three days old. Begin with wet bread, with plenty of black pepper; mix with this, for every 40 turkeys, one drachm of gunpowder twice a week: feed this for four weeks. It you have many turkeys, stale bread Is always obtain able at bakeries at a low price. At tbe age of four weeks you may begin to feed home made cheese. Do not spare tbe pepper In this. Continue this nntll all tbe pin featbers appear. Then your turkeys are quite out of danger and able to take care of them selves. Always be careful to keep tbem In a dry place. Never let tbem run in the grass In tbe morning until the dew Is off. nor per mit tbem to be out in a shower or just after one. My advice to iurney raisers wuuiu u m keep tne mother ben and brood up until tnoy are a week old. Wheat makes an excellent feed after cheese, but never feed rye. Poul try Monthly. Civranta. Currant jelly must always be given the first place In tbe 1st of jellies made from our many delightful fruits used for tbe purpose, and no housekeeper should be willing to serve roast venison, roast duck, or chicken, or In fact any game without a glass of tbe pretty crimson jelly, which adds tucb a relish td these dlthes. Currant jslly besides has the merit of being suitable for jilly cake, jelly rolls and puddings, as well as tarts, and gives delleh'ful fUvor to sauces, gravies and tlewf, and mav be used In place of wine In many dishes. It Is by far tbe most economi cal jelly that ean be made, as, Instead of the uruai pouna oi auger 10 a pint or juice, nan tbe quantity of sugar may be used, and very little cooking will be found to thicken tbe ju'ce so as to cause It to jelly ai once. Currants for jelly should be allowed to turn red, but never gee over ripe, and should be gathered on a dry day ; then picked from tbe stems, put In a preserve kettle and et over tbe tire till thoroughly heated, when they should be put In a jelly bag and Btrained; tbe juice measured and put on tj ball for five minutes; tbe sugar can be weighed or meas ured, about twi-lbtrds as much ai tbeju'ci beln allowed ; sometimes when tbe currants are just at tbe right stage one-half as much sugar ns juice will aus v er ; as soon as tbe su gar is dissolved tae jelly will be ready to put In tbe glasses. Black currants make a very nice jelly, and are said to be excellent for colds and sore throats. As they are not very juicy, a little water must be added to tbem. . Currant jam maybe made by adding tbe sugar to the fruit without ' straining, and cooking until thick. Spice currants are a nice dish. To prepare them stem and weight tbe currants; allow balf a pound of sugar, one tablespoooful of cloves, cinnamon and ginger each to every pound; aad ufnjlent vinegar to the sugar to dissolve It; put In a porcelain kettle, and set over tbe tire until It comes to a boll ; add the currants and splce,and let cook balf an hour ; take up; put In small jirs; cover and set In a cool, dark place, Courlei -Journal.
