MASTERED IN TEW WEEKS.

In tho winter of 1P02--3 Mr. Schrosppdl
win confined to his bed. by a severe at
tacit of rhoumntlsm. His doctor's trent
jiient proved unsuccessful, lint ho snbso
'.qucntly regained his Jicnlth by means
vliich ho describes with jrcat cntku
Vinsm. 'After five or Mx weeks of liolplcni
mss nml pain,' -said he, " dining Which
I was receiving regular visits from tho
doctor, I felt ns ImhI as over. Just thou
ny mother, a wnmnil eighty years of
Jtigc, paid mo a visit. She Imd rocoivod
ront benefit from Dr. Williams' Piulc
Pill, and Bho was confident tltey would
Jiolp mo. At lior solicitation I gave up
ho doctor's treatment and took tho pills
an its placo."
'And wero you cured as tho result of
'taking Ucr advice?"
"Yes, quickly and thoroughly. Bo
forotho second box was finished I fult
very manifest improvement, nnd witliiu
two vyooks t was al)lo to leavo my bod and
tnke np my neglected farm work. I con
tinned to tiso the pills, however, nnHl
eight boxes bail Ik'CU taken, .although
3oug lmforo that I felt that every ves
tige of tho dlheaso had boon omdlcnted.
'Aro thcro no trnees loft?"
"Absolutely none. For a year and
.hroe months there has nover been tlio
lightest return otlho old IrouliJo. For
tliis happy result I and my family freely
au-iiiso Dr. Williams' Pink Pills."
"Within tho hounds of China township,
Si. Clair comity Mich., thcro is no hot
ei' I:uovii former than Mr. Henry
Schrooppcl. Ills euro lms.theroforo nnt
iirnlly attracted a great deal of attention.
Oiio of Mr. Sehiwppul'n neighbors, Cap
tain George Balfour, after hearingof tlio
.iiltitnrv results in Mr. 9chroepel's ease,
decided ti try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
ifor an attack of rheumatism from which
flio was himself suiTering. Ho took oiglit
ir ton boxes and now declares himself
free from tho painful nihneiit."
It is little wonder that Dr. Williams
aPink Pills aro much in favor in tlio com.
nnu(tv whom Mr. Schropppol mid Cap
tain Balfour aro so woll and favorably
icuowii. They nro sold by all druggists
nd aro equally Micccssfnl in curing

TO LIVE LONG AND WELL
How Tuberculosis and Kindred Ills May Be
Avoided. Alleviated and Cured.
Suppression of Consumption.
Tuberculosis can bo suppressed. It
is not necessary for a person to die bo
cause lie lias consumption. Thousands
of men nntf women have boon sacri
ficed Wio might havo been alive to
day if only the tight procedure had
boon adopted. Thnt which is necos
fcry for tho mastery of this disease
is to return to nature to llvo natur
ally in the fresh air, develop tho lungs
and cat proper food.
Tuberculosis is a low-level disease.
People aro not subject to it until their
tissues have become vitiated and their
Whole bodies weakened. '
To live' a natural life Is tho only
safeguard agnlnst tuberculosis One
ollmnto may do as well as another it
only ono lives out of doors, gets plenty
of cold, ftesh air, bathes tho body with
cold water several times a day, and

a boy eats mustard pliisters in tho
form ot food that Is almost saturated

but liquor or cigarets will satisfy. Man
is admonished to "eat for strength,
nnd not for drunkenness," but in these
days anything that will tickle the four
square inches of tasto surface is con
sidered good food, although it may
contain scarcely any of the elements
thnt nature requires to replace broken

Tent Life Cures Consumption.
A doctor in Denver some tlmo ago
made some experiments with consump

a little way out of Denver, and tho
patients progressed fairly well during
tho first part of tho winter. But by
nnd by there was a blizzard, and, tho
thermometer went down to 20 degrees
below zero, and then they began to
improve very fast. One woman did
not seem to improve nt all until tho
temperature reached this mark, and
then sho improved rapidly. She had
bad no appetite, but that 20 degrees
below zero weather gavo her an appe

body was beginning to work naturally,
that tho assimilative processes wero
being resumed, and from that time sho
kept on improving.

Condiments Create False Appetite.
There is absolutely no food value
In mustard, pepper, ginger, capsicum
and such things, and sorab of them,
spiced pickles, for instance, are indi
gettlble as sawdust. But these things,
people say, have a relish. Those who
havo a good, licalty appetite do not
feel the need of anything of that sort
for a relish.
A condiment is something which
creates a false demand for food. It
enables us to oat svhen we really have
no appetite. Appetite is an evidence
of gastric Julco with which to digest
food. Lack of appetite is nn evidence
that ono is not in a condition to digest
food. But n condiment often produces
a false impression resembling appe
tite, making one think that he is ready
for food when he is not. It Is, there
fore, a deceiver, to bo especially avoid
ed by those who have no appetite.
Mustard, pepper, spices of all sorts are
ei.emies to health.
If my next door neighbor chooses to

Natural Cure for Tuberculosis.
A Swedish doctor some fourteen or
fifteen years ago succeeded, by a very
crude method, in curing patients who
have been given up to die. His prac
tice was first of all to rub the patient
three times a tday with a towe,1 wet
In very cold water. A littlo later ho
put the patient in a tub of water at
about CO degrees, rubbing hjm vigor
ously for about a minute, and later, as
the patient becamo better able to
endure the cold water, he was plunged
Into a tub full of ice water. This was
done three times a day. Think of
those poor consumptives! Neverthe
less they got well. Tho cold water,
with the rubbing following, produced
such n powerful reaction that tho
whole body was stimulated to in
creased vital activity and recovery fol
lowed. Herp is another case: A young man
In New York who wa3 getting ready
to go to tho Klondike went into prac
tice, to convince his friends that he
would not frcezo to death. Out of a
largo buffalo robe ho mado n bag,
pitched a tent in the back yard and
slept in tho tent in the buffnlo bag, alt
the winter, without suffering nny in
Jury from the cold.
And another: A cultured lady in
New Jersey who made up her mind
that sho needed a little hardening,
slept out of doors all last winter. Sho
had her bod put out on tho sqcond
story veranda, and an awning put up,
with a not around It to keep the night
hawks away. Plenty of clothing was
provided, a cap worn to' keep the cars
from freezing, and she got along so
well that she slept out ot doors the
A National Error.
Our cities nro growing so rapidly
that only about one-half of our popula
tion arc now living in the country. Dr.
Gould, speaking of tho wrong of shut
ting men and women up In houses nnd
forcing thorn into sedeutary occupa
tions, says: "There is enough land and
opportunity, if botlt were allowed nnd
utilized, to give every human being n
livelihood that will permit llfo of a
normal length." He adds, that with
proper hygienic HWng, especially in
youth, and with right lung expansion
and development, no person should'
In Now York city consumptives nre
building little huts on the tops of the
houses, and are recovering. Outsldo
New York, Boston, and other largo
cities, tent colonies, where consump
tives can live out of doors, are being
established. Every city ought to havo
outside it a camp wliero tubercular
patients can live and get well. The air
inside tho city Is not so good as it
is outside; buf on the tops of the
houses, where the sun can shine, it
Is a great deal better than it is iu the
damp, dirty buildings iu which most
city people live.
Some "Don'ts" About Dress.
Don't dress the neck too warm when
going out in cold weather. A little
extra protection is required for the
cars, but it is not necessary to muflle
up tho neck with thick furs to protect
tho ears. Warm wrappings about the
neck cause the bkin of tho' neck .to
become moistened with perspiration.
When the wrappings are removed in
doors, the slow cooling which takes
placo in consequence of tho evapora
tion chills the part, and mny produce
soro throat or nasal catarrh.
Don't wear rubbers indoors, nor out
of doors, except when it is necessary
to prevent wetting the feet. Rubbers,
being impervious to air, prevent evap
oration, so that the perspiration is re
tained, and the shoes and btockings
become damp from the perspiration.
When the rubbers are removed, evap
oration chills tho feet, the same as if
they had been wet by the rain or by
walking on a wet pavement. On le
moving the rubbers after they have
Leen worn for some time it is a good
precaution to remove the shoes and
stockings and put on dry ones. If thrs
cannot be conveniently done care
should be taken to keep the feet warm
until tho shoes are dry. The rubbers
should bo dried befoio wearing agalu.
