CATABHH of the stomach is the cor

■tomach the catarrh must be eradicated.
Only an internal catarrh remedy,
such as Peruna. is available.
Peruna exactly meets the indications.
“For a number of years requests
have come to me from a multitude of
grateful friends, urging that Peruna
be given a.sli^ut laxative quality. I

RAISING GARDEN HERBS.
This Is a Practical Occupation Open
to a Woman Thrown on Her
Among the practical occupations
open to women that are thrown upon
their own resources without previous
training in any sort of business is thai
of raising garden herbs.
There has never been a sufficiency ol
ceasoning herbs to be had at any mar
ket; parsley, tnyme, sweet marjoram,
bay leaf, mint, are always in demand
by those who know their value in the
proper cooking ot savory dishes. Theit
raising is neither difficult nor expen
sive. A small piece of ground will sup
ply auy large private market establish
ment or green grocer, and it is work
that even a delicate woman can under
.but she must, first of all, instruct
herself in the nature of the soil need
ed, the amount of sunshine, water and
general habits of the things she 13
going to raise. To do this it is on y
necessary fur her to visit any good li
brary and study books on the subject,
making notes and really learning, just
as if she were at school.
Then she must study how to get the
very best plants for her purpose; all
florists and agriculturists are glad to
send catalogues for the asking, and.
while the gorgeous cuts exaggerate the
fecundity and appearance of them
wares, such catalogues are a help.
Once she know- the right soil to pre
pare, the rest is easy. If she has no
boy neighbor to call upon to measure
and define the various beds, she can
simply tie stout cords to sticks stuck
In the ground to keep one variety from
running over the e ther. The spading
she may have to hire done, and the
pulverizing of the soil, which is very
essential to success, most failures be
ing due to the caking of imperfectly
prepared ground that either carries off
the water that is applied or allows it
to stand without penetrating the earth
to reach the roots of thirsty plants.
Take the fragrant garden mint as a
very fair example of an herb that is
well worth cultivating. I have seen a
single root spread in a couple of years
over a 12-foot square of ground, and its
nealthy sprigs are always in demand.
The woman who wills to do so can
find a market for her mint the year
round, if she will care that it will not
freeze. Sweet marjoram grows fast
also, as do all these seasoning herbs,
and needs but little care when once
started. Curly parsley makes a lovely
garnishing for a dish of croquettes or
for any sort of broiled meats or fisn.
and never can there be too much
if to these be added chives and len
tils. there are always purchasers for
these greens that make such delicious
spring salads. But this business must
be properly attended to if there is to be
a livelihood in it; like everything
else in this world, it amounts to noth
ing without a certain amount of care
and trouble. If there is a sudden bliz
zard the plants must be protected; it
the midsummer sun is too hot, some
sort of shade must be evolved, and so
on through the list of watchful precau
tions that are necessities to success.—

LEARNING TO BE HANGMAN
The New Incumbent Has Grewsome
Rehearsals of His Unen
Several executions took place recent
ly at Pentonville prison on the scaf
fold which has been the scene of the
final exit of numerous notorious crim
inals. relates London Mail.
The executioner was Alec Taylor,
the newly appointed common hangman,
and the subjects “hanged” in set form
were lay figures of cloth and sand.
It is, of course, essential that the
official that has to tarry out the last
dread sentence of the law should first
thoroughly learn the technique of his
grewsome profession to insure that
when the time come3 all the opera
tions will happen decently and in or
der. Therefore each new hangman
immediately after his appointment
goes through a realistic course of
training. In pursuance of this policy,
Taylor, under the guidance of ex
perienced prison officials who have as
sisted at many executions, is now serv
ing his apprenticeship.
Several sandbags shaped to repre
sent men of different weights were
supplied for Taylor’s practice. He was
instructed that men of varying builds
should be given certain prescribed
drops” to effect instantanec us death.
Then a sandbag made to the rough
semblance and weight of a man was
placed on the scaffold flap. Taylor
was told the weight, the noose was
properly adjusted, the requisite drop
arranged for and the lever pulled.
This experiment was performed again
and again with differently weighted
The other part of the hangman's
training, the pinioning of a con
demned prisoner, was even more real
istic. For the time being stalwart
warders posed as condemned murder
ers. Taylor, practicing on them, was
shown the quickest and most effective
way of securing the hands and feet

Don’t ferget that mirth is God’s
medicine. The man who hasn’t a
hearty laugh hasn’t much sympathy
with humanity and his chances for

THE WHITE PAINT OF THE
The White House at Washington,
which has been the "Kings Palace”
of the American People since it was
first occupied by President Madison
in 1809, has recently undergone a
thorough course of remodelling, rena
vation and repair. Every American
citizen is ewn.r of an undivided
eighty or eighty-five millionth part of
the White House, as well as of the
other Public Buildings and Monuments
in the Capitol City. An item in the
renovation of the remodelled White
House was repainting. Every visitor
to Washington knows why the White
House is so called—because it is lit
erally a "white house”. The ext.rior
paint must therefore be white. Now
while the pure white surfaces and sim
ple lines of the White House, set in
the midst of green lawns and beauti
ful trees, produce a very satisfying
effect of dignified simplicity, white
paint from a practical point of view,
is about the most unsatisfactory kind
of paint that could have b.en selected
by the original designers. First, be
cause any white paint is easily dis
colored by smoke and dust, and sec
ond. because ordinary white paint
itself gradually turns gray or brown
ish yellow from exposure.
But white the White House is and
white it must remain or it would no
longer be the "White House”. So the
renovators, making tbe best of a dis
couraging situation, sought for the
best kind of white paint procurable.
The average citizen if asked to guess
what kind of paint they finally decid
ed on would probably answer—“white
lead and oil,” but he would guess
wrongly. The paint selected as the
best obtainable was a ready mixed
paint, such as can be bought in any
well furnished village store, such as
is used by more than half of the
eighty or eighty-five million owners
of the White House on their own
homes. That one brand of mixed
paint was used instead of another is
a mere accidental detail—there are
fifty or a hundred brands on the
market that might have been selected
in other circumstances, and in fact,
a different brand was used in paint
ing the Capitol.
Every property owner, therefore,
who paints his house with a high
grade ready-mixed paint is following
the example set by tbe Gov rnment
Authorities at Washington, who used
ready-mixed paint, because they could
find nothing else as good.

For Sick Women
FlBST.—That almost every operation
in our hospitals performed upon women
becomes necessary through neglect of
such symptoms as backache, irregular
and painful periods, displacements
of the female organs, pain in the 6ide,
burning sensation in the stomach,
bearing-down pains, nervousness, diz
ziness and sleeplessness.
Second.—The medicine that holds
the record for the largest number of
absolute cures of female ills is Lydia
E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound
It regulates, strengthens and cures
diseases of the female organism as
nothing else can.
For thirty years it has been helping
women to be strong, curing backache,
nervousness, kidney troubles, inflam
mation of the female organs, weak
ness and displacements, regulating
the periods perfectly and overcoming
their pains. It has also proved itself
invaluable in preparing women for
childbirth and the change of life.
Third.—The great volume of unso
licited and grateful testimonials on file
at the Pinkiiam Laboratory at Lynn,
Mass., many of which are from time to
time published by permission, give ab
solute evidence of the value of Lydia
I E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound and
Mrs. Pinkham’s advice.
to Women.—Women suffering from any
form of female weakness are invited to
, promptly communicate with Mrs. 1‘ink
■ ham, at Lynn, Mass. All letters are
received, opened, read and answered
j by women only. From symptoms given,
your trouble may be located and the
quickest and surest way of recovery
advised. Mrs. 1‘inkham is daughter
in-law of Lydia E. Piakham and for
twenty-live years under her direction
and since her decease she has been ad
the vast volume of experience in treat
ing female ills Mrs Pinkham probably
has the very knowledge that will help
yoar case. Surely, any woman, rich or
poor, is very fooli sh if she does not take
