to tho attention of tho public by a

Many a woman is nervous and

can think of.
Doctor Pierce's Favorite Pre

cirla as well as grown women. My
daughter was in an extremely nervous
condition and suffered with irregu
larity. Just a half bottle of the 4 Pro

to be an excellent tonic besides.
"Several months afterwards, I was
in a very nervous state and the half
bottle of Prescription that my daugh

as efficient as in her case." Mrs.

First Postage Stamps
SEVENTY-THREE years ago this
year the first United Stntes postage
stamp was placed on sale for the
benefit nnd convenience of tho letter
writing public of New York city. In
these three score nnd thirteen years
the postotllce has Issued 475 types of
postage stamps, ranging In value from
1 cent to $5. The first postage stamp,
a 5-cent one, wns authorized by uct
of congress March 3, 1847, and Is
known to have been Issued In five col
ors dark and light sable, red, brown
and orange red. We are told, too,
that 8,712,000 were Issued In three
years. They were recalled June 30,
1851. The design shows a three-qunr-ter-to-the-left

the then king of England, received
the commission of deputy postmaster

with the yearly salary of $3,000. Sev

STANDARD BREEDS OF FOWLS
Poultry Keeper Should Select Breed
Best Adapted to His Purpose
Leaving out of consideration tho
breed kept ns novelties, all the
standard American breeds of fowls
have been made and developed on
the general principle of practical
quality as (he foundation of breed
character and value. In harmony
with this principle, tho common
classification of breeds according to
their places In the general scheme of
poultry production divides thorn Into
three prlnclpnl classes: laying breeds,
mei.t breeds and general-purpose
breeds that Is, breeds that are not
as ready nnd persistent egg producers
as the laying breeds, and not as
meaty and as easy to fatten as the
It1 put breeds, yet combine In one Indi
vidual fowl very good laying .capacity
with very good tnble quality.
The Leghorn, Minorca, Andaluslan.
Ahcona and Camplno are well-known
breeds of tho laying class; the Brah
ma, Dorking, nnd Cornish of the meat
class; the Plymouth Hock, Wyan
dotte, Hhode Island Bed and Orping
ton of the general-purpose class.
The breeds of the laying class, with
tho exception of the Minorca, are
relatively small, very energetic and
lively, mature onrJy, nnd are easily
kept In good laying condition. The'
Minorca Is of larger size and modi
fied somewhat In the other particu
lars mentioned, yet hns more the
chnracter of the laying clnss than of
In the meat breeds there Is not" the
same uniformity of type that Is found
In the Inylng-'breeds. The three men

same time the largest and most rug

Among the populnr breeds of the
general-purpose class there are also
differences In type, adapting breeds
to different uses. The Plymouth Hock
Is genernlly regarded as tho type
meeting the widest range of require
ments In the general-purpose class.
The Wyandotte Is n little smnller
and earlier maturing, but still very
well mented and easy to fatten.
Tho Rhode Island Bed has nearly
the same standards of weight as the
Wyandotte, but Is n more active bird,
not putting on fat so readily. Conse
quently, It approaches the laying typo
and Is most populnr with thoso who
want eggs and ment, hut want eggs
The Orpington Is nt tho other ex
treme In the general-purpose class,
being n heavier, meatier fowl thnn
the Plymouth Rock.
Such n list of breeds nffords so
wide a range of choice thnt poultry
keepers can always select a standard
breed better adapted to their local
ity and their purpose than nny non
standard stock they can procure, say
poultry specialist of the United
Stntes Department of Agriculture. A
flock of stnndard-bred fowl will liavo
the further advantage of reproducing
true to type.

Whether tho purpose of poultry
breeding bo for the show, for table

progress will bo made by picking out
