io escape the pitfalls, and yot enjoy what

AJ&Z THE SOIL.
Dr. R. V. Pierce of Buffalo, author oi the Common Sent
Medic 1 Adviser, says "why does not the farmer treat bii ewa
body he treats the land be cultivates. He puts back in phos
phate what he take out in crops, or the land would grow poor.
The farmer tbeuld put back into his body the vital elements
exhausted by labor, or by ill-health induced by seme chrouio
disease." Further, he savs. " the dreat value of mv Doctor
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is in its vitalising power. It gives strength
to the stomach and purity to the blood. It is like the phosphates which supply
nature with the substances that build up the crops. The far-reaching actios ef
Doctor Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery
is due to its effect en the stomach and ergons of digestion and nutrition. Dis
eases that begin in the stomach are cured through the stomach. A bilious spell
is simply the result ef an effort mads by the liver to catch up vrbea over-worked
and exhausted. I have found the ' Discovery ' to be unsurpassed as a liver reg
ulator and rich blood-maker."

THE WOUNDED KNIGHT.
Chicago Inter Ocean.
When I was a frolicsome youngster
And you were a chit of a gill,
I sported a sweater and "knickers"
And you a conspicuous curl!
And once, as you doubtless remember,
I punctured myself with a blade.
And you carefully tied up my flng4r
With a bandage you hastily made!
I said that the bleeding was nothing.
Though feeling suspiciously faint:
In spite of It all you Insisted
On playing the mtnlstrant saint
And somehow, bofore you had finished
And tho bandage was properly sealed.
You seemed like a wonderful lady
And I like a knight from the flsld!
And when you had bound It, there flamed
A spot In the midst 6f your cheek,.
Your eyelids were timidly lowered
And you feared for a moment to speak.
And then for a time for you only.
With oonstanoy nothing e'er shook,
I removed, when requested, the wrapping
To furnish a coveted look!
And that's why I secretly murmur
At suffrage and thtngs ot the kind.
And that's why I frown on disturbance
Of feminine heart and of mlndl
I shudder to think of an era
Distressingly lacking In Joy,
When girls never wrap the boys' fingers
As thoy wrapped them when I was a
