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.

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.

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.

To Feed and Ralsn Turkey.
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.
