A REMARKABLE custom in connec
tion with window-gardening exists in
some d is tries of Japan. In houses where
in reside one or more daughters of a
marriageable age, an empty flower-pot,
of an ornamental character, is incircled
by a ring, and suspended from the win
dow or veranda by three light chains.
The Juliets of Japan are, of course, as
attractive to the Romeos as those of other
land. But instead of serenades by
mYnlight and other delicate ways of
making an impression, it is etquette for
he Japanese lover to approach the
dwelling of his lady bearing some choice
plant in his hand, which be boldly, but
let us hope, reverently proceeds to plant
n the empty vase. This takes place at a
time when he is fully assured that both
mother and .daughter are at home, neith
erof whom, of course, is at all con
scious that the young man is taking
such a liberty with the flower-pot out
side their window, this act of placing
a pretty plant in the empty flower-pot
is equivalent to a formal proposal to the
young lady who dwells within.
The youthful gardoer, having fettled
his plant to his mind, retires, and the
lady js free to act as she pleaser. If he
is the right man, she takes every care of
his gift, waters it, and tends it carefully
with her own hands, that all the world
may see the donor is accepted as a suitor.
But if he is not a favorite, or if stern
parents object, the poor plant is torn
from the vase, and the next morning lies
limp and withered on tha veranda or on
the path below.

How To Find Out
Fill a bottle or common glass with
urine and let it stand twenty-four hours.
a sediment or settlinsr indicates an un
healthy condition of the kidneys. When
urine stains linen it is evidence of kidney
trouble. Too frequent desire to urinate
or pain in the back, is also convincing
proof that the kidneys and blader are out
'j , What To Do.
There is comfort in the knowledge so
often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp Root, the great kidney remedy
fulfils every wish in relieving pain ia
the back, kidneys, liver, bladder and
every partof Hie urinary passages. It
corrests inability to hold urine and scald
ing pain in passing it, or bad effects fol
lowing use of liquor, wing or beer, and
overcomes that unpleasant necessity of
being compelled to get up many times
during the night to urinate. The mild
and the extraordinary effect of Swamp
Root is soon realized. It stands the
highest for its wonderful cures of the
most distressing cases. If you need a
medicine you should have the best.
Sold by, druggists, price fifty cents and
one dollar. You may have a sample
bottle and pamphlet both sent free by
mail. Mention The Sioux County
Journal and send your address to Dr.
Kilmer & t., Bmghampton, N. x. Ihe

It in reported from Columbus, Oh., to
the mtr)oliUn press all over the
country that lion. M. A. Banna, who
is askint.- the Ohio legislature to
turn him td Uie U. 8. sonata, likes five
vjtes in order to be successful, and
that the irdi cat ions point to the elec
tion of Gov Bushuell. - Mark Ilanna is
too sleek a politician to be defeated by
any ordinal candidate. A man, who
can manipulate a national campaign
like Mark lanna did the 1806 campaign
there is little chance for his defeat
as U. 8. Unator, of course we have in

GlrlH and Their use of Slang.
It is unfortunate that slang prases are
so easily slipping into our every -day con
versation, and taking apparently so fixed
a place io our talk. And the worst of
it is that so many people are using slarg
entirely unconscious of the fact that
they are doing so. Some of our slang
phrases are scarcely recognized as such
so familiar has common usage made
them. Where a dozen years ago a re
timed girl would hesitate to use the
most moderate slang phrase, to-day she
employs the most expressive slang
terms without thinking, A few years
ago her most pronounced expressions of
surprise was "Oh, gracious!" After a
while this was not strong enough, and
we heard "Gee whizt" Then it turned
into "Heavens! while now it is not at
all uncommon to bear a girl make use
of "Good Lord!" A girl speaks of a
friend who is tired as being "knocked
out," entirely unconscious that she is
using a vulgarism of the most pronounc
ed sort "Nt" is used for "no"; the
sense of being bored is expressed in
"You make me tired." A young man
impresses a girl, and he is spoken of ns
being "immense," or " way up," or be is
"smooth. A girl of stylish carriage
finds herself placed as being "swagger."
A girl of nerve "has sand." For a girl
to bs told by her companion tliat she is
"not in it" is common thing. Things
suit girls "down to the ground"; what
they do not understand they do not
tumble to." And thus the vocabulary
of slang grows.
IF THIS common usage of slang wore
confined to a particular order of girls, it
would, perhaps, serve as an indicator of
character, and pass unnoticed it than
at least, would not touch the sensi
bilities of gentlefolk. But it ia not so
confined. Slang is invading the very
nicest of circles: it is begin ing to influen
ce the talk of our most carefully reared
girls. And this is why the habit should
receive closer attention. Girls are for
getting that slang phrases and refine
ment are absolutely foreign to each
other, A slang phrase may be more ex
pressive than a term of polite usage, but
it is never impressive, except to impress
unfavorably; We may argue and excuse
certain slang phrases and say they are
harmless in their usage: that they an
employed In a meaningless way. But
the fact still remains that slang is
vulgar, aad invariably vulgarises the
girl who uses it There are no two sides
to that view of the question.
