sunshine possible if you wish plenty
of bloom. After it is done blooming,
tho foliage is still very lovely, and it
may be allowed to grow in tho sun
shine until the foliage begins to turn
yellow, -when it may bo planted in
earth, either out doors (if not too cold
to work the ground) and given a cov
ering of coarse manure, .or it may be
potted in earth and, set in the cellar
until spring, when it may be planted
outside. It will grow, and in a few
years, give you some bloom; but not
such quantities as it did when you
got it. if you do not care to give it
tnis care, throw it away, it will not

For Tho Toiloi
To prevent the too free perspiration
of the feet, put a tablespoonful of
vinegar in the footbath; after tho bath,
rub the soles of the feet with camphor.
Hair that splits at the ends is in
need of good tonic, and, although ic
is considered advisable to clip the
ends, nothing will do much good with
out the strengthening tonic. Sage tea
is a good, home-made tonic.
An excellent cold cream may be
made as follows: Two and one-half
ounces each of spermaceti and sweet
almond oil, one fourth oiinc9 of white
wax; melted together by setting tho
vessel containing them into another
vessel" containing water, and heating.
After removing "from the fire, beat into
the mixture, half an ounce of i.est rose
water, beating until it creams. A
little diluted alcohol is -a good astrin
gent for closing enlarged pores of the
WHY APPENDICITIS?
Why is appendicitis so common tor
day?
.B'ecaus.e we have got into tue per
nicious, habit of eating too fast.
Dr. Curtis, the great authority on
this disease, says: "Apendicitis often
follows the eating of a very hasty, or
particularly large or indigestible
meal."
After carelessly following a foolish
custom, you can ensu-o your safety
by taking Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets.
It is an accepted, scientific truth,
which admits of no dispute, ...jat if
you will only keep your aigcstive ap
paratus in good order, you will never
suffer from is dread disease, which,
at best, means' a weakening operation,
with long weeks wasted in bed, and
Lg doctor's and surgeon's bills to pay
as souvenirs.
Keep your appendix in health by the
proper use of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tabr
lets, whenever you have laid yourself
open to danger by overeating, and upon
tho least sign of stomach or intestinal
trouble, for otherwise, at any time,
this aangerous disease may .ay you
low.
The curative influence of this great
i .cdicine is quickly shown in the gen
tle, soothing effect it has on all In
flamed conditions of any part of the
digestive tract.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets tone all
these parts up to a proper condition of
perfect health, and regulate c func
tions into a proper working state.
'i'hey also make away with all the
causes of irritation, inflammation or
indigestion, by helping to dipolve, di
gest and assimilate, or put to proper
use, all the food which Is lying around
in odd corners of your digestive appar
atus, fermenting, rotting and curdling,
like so much garbage in. a dirty sink.
In these natural and perfectly sim
ple ways, Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets
restore all sufferers, from any form of
dyspeptic trouble, to health.
They are safo and reliable. Thfv

and permanently.

skin, and should be applied to tho
face after washing, and allowed to
ary on.
For the removal of superfluous hair,
tho use- of tho toilet pumice stone Is
recommended. Tho pumice stone for
the toilet is very fine, and can bo had
of your druggist at a cost of from tun
cents up, according to its mountings.
Tho aco should bo first washed in
warm soapy water, and whilo quite
soapy, rub tho pumice over tho of
fending growth, but not hard enough
to rougnen the skin. A fow applica
tions will show Its efficacy, but the
process must be repeated evory day.
Tho use of soap does not agree with
some fine, dry skins, and should never
00 used on such, as the alkali in the
soap takes away tho natural oil of
tho skin. In such cases, almond meal
should bo used, by taking a little In
tho hand and using tho same as soap.
A few drops of carbolic acid added
to the washwater will heal skin erup
tions. If the nostrils are sore and
dry, and inclined to "scab," try put
ting carbolated vaseline well up the
nasal passage and leaving it there
over night. In tho morning tho sore
ness will be greatly relieved and the
dry scabbiness removed. It should bo
repeated as often" as the soreness is
felt, and the vaseline may bo warmed
slightly and introduced with-a feather
or little roll of frazzled cotton cloth.

Bug-Bears
We hear a great deal now-a-days
about tho various kinds of bugs, in
doors and out, and of tho terrible
losses entailed by their ravages. Tho
actual money loss to all lines of busi
ness is simply enormous, and our
wisest men are puzzling their brains
as to how successfully to combat them.
But there Is another bug which Is sel
dom spoken of, save in jest, that is
putting in a lot of timo and doing in
calculable injury to our very best
products the coming generations of
men and women.
These bugs are generally bred in the
homes the houses, and oftener than
not, we find them growing under the
fostering hand of the mothers, sisters
fathers and brothers actually fostered
and encouraged! Every time a mother
or other member of tho household In
whom he has faith, tells the little child
that the "bears will eat him," or "the
buggers will catch him," or that tho
bad man is lying in wait for him un
less he, does what he is told to do,
there . is another batch of these de
structive bugs started. By these bugs,
the world is peopled in childhood with
a thousand useless and foolish fears,
torturing ureads and nervous horrors,
from which a large number of our
brightest minds can never entirely free
themselves.
By these wretched "bugs," the
natural timidity of the child Is In
creased into absolute cowardice, not
only physical, but moral, and instead
of sending out Into the world a strong,
bravo Hfilf-rfcHnnt. man or woman, we
give to the age a set of nervous weak
lings, trre direct result of the lies im
planted by the lips of those who should
have been only truth to the little, im
pressionable hearts and mind. The
world is full of these wretched apol
ogies in human form. They have no
"back-bone," and cannot cope with the
smallest discouragements. In the face
of trouble, if one sets him on his shaky
legs by main force, he goes down again
as soon as tho prop is removed, tie
always "adds to tho smart of the
thorns which scratch him the fear of
tho asps and adders which are not
visible," and which probably do not
exist at all, or, existing, may bo de
stroyed by one firm motion of the
hand.
Were the fears of these timorous
human mice in any way true, what a
norrible place this world would be!
Yet all this cowardice is the work of
these swarming bugs, fostered and

You pay nothing --you promise nothing
you risk nothing -you deposit nothing.
Crystalized Poison!
You know that hard water leaven a deposit of
lime In the bottom or the tea-kettle In which It
bolls, and soft water doca not. This because
jolt water la filtered and contalnH no lime, while
hard water Is not liltercd and la full of It.
lou canlmaglnolhatif that deposit were to
settle In the Joint of your knee It would bo ex
tremely palniul. And If the deposit grew, you
could finally no longer endure tho torturj of
walking.
Yut that Is the very way that Rheumatism be
gins and ends. Except that the deposit which
lunna is noi nmc, uui crysiaiizca poison.
For your blood Is alwaya full ol poison tho
poison you cat and drink and breathe nto your
Hystcm. It Is the purpose ol tho blood to absorb
and carry oil thlivcry poison. And thokldncyn,
which aro the bloud filters, aro expected to
clcatiBe the blood nnd send It buck through tho
system cleau to gather more poison which, they,
In turn, will eliminate.
But sometimes tho kidneys fall. And some
times, from some other cause, tho blood gets so
full of poison that they "unnot absorb It all.
This Is the start of Rheumatism The poison
accumulates and crystallize . Tho blood carries
tho crystals nnd they increase In bIzc. Then,
when It can carry them no longer, It deposits
them In h Joint a bone anywhere.
The twinge In your leg the dull ache In your
arm on a rainy day these arc the outward signs
of tho unseen crystals. And tho twisted HmbB
and unspeakable ang lib of the sufferer who
has allowed his symptoms to go unheeded and
unattended for yeurs these aro tho evidences
of what Rheumatism neglected, ran do.
Rheumatism Includes lumbago, sciatica,
neuralgia, gout all ol these aro tho results ot
rheumatic poison in the blood.
Plainly, tho first thing to do Is to remove tho
poison. Rut this is not enough. The foiima
tion of tho poison must be stopped, so that na
turo may have a chance to dissolve and elimin
ate tho crystalB which havo already formed.
Unh 88 this is dono thcro can bo no euro no
permanent relief.
A Certain Cure
I spent twonty years In experimenting before
I felt satisfied that I hud a certain remedy for
this dread rilavasc, n remedy which would not

stop Its formation.

Croquettes of Odds and End
Any scrap that happen to be left
from one or -more meals may be
utilized in making croquettes, and as
the cold weather advances, taoso odds
and ends may De Kept until enough
is on hand for use. A spoonful or
two of frizzled beef and cream, scraps
of lean meat, minced beef, hard boiled
eggs, cold potatoes, all tho scraps and
trimmings of tho meats and fowls, cold
rice, cooked oat meal, crumbs of
bread In fact, anything in too small
quantities to be used by itself, will
lend itself to this method of using up
the left-overs. Chop well and season,
mix with a raw egg, a little flour,
outter, and boiling water enough to
enable one to form the mass Into
croquettes, and then brown well In hot
fat In a frying pan or on a griddle.
The Ingredients should be put together
wifh care, so as to make them easily
handled and palatable, and the result
will be a very desirable addition to
tho breakfast or lunch table.
Planked Flail
Planking is an old-new way of cook
ing fish. Have a two-inch plank made
from hard wood (oak is best) about
the size of a large platter. Several
sizs can bo prepared for convenience.
When wishing to use, -put irf botto'm
of tho oven and heat very hoi; have
the fish well cleaned; wipe with a dry
cloth, split down tho back and put
it, skin-side down, on the hot plank
and hclv the oven quite hot for ten.
