Catarrh 1ms Income such common
disease that a person entirely free from
this disgusting complaint is seldom met
with. It is customary to speak of Catarrh
as nothing more serious than a bad cold,
a simple inflammation of the nose and
throat. It is, in fact, a complicated and
very dangerous disease ; if not at first, it
very soon becomes so.
The blood is quickly contaminated by
the foul secretions, and the poison through
the general circulation is carried to all
parts of the system.
Salves, washes and sprays are unsatis
factory and disappointing, ficcauje they do
not reach the seat of the trouble. S. S. S.
does. It cleanses the blood of the poison
and eliminates from the system all catar
rhal secretions, and thus cures thoroughly
and permanently the worst cases.

"Whilst our liu.-tnnndsand brother, nro

to her country women, "we must be pat

speckled apron when receiving fas

town. It was said afterward that she
Required her inveterate habit of knit
ting in her zeal at Valley Forge to re
lieve the barefooted men around her.
On every fair day she might- be seen
walking through the rude street of
the town of huts with a basket in her
hand. Entering the hut of a sergeant,
she found him dying on a pallet of
straw, his wife beside him In the an
guish of final Reparation. She minis
tered to his comfort with food pre
pared by her own hands. Then kneel
ing she earnestly prayed with her
'tweet and solemn voice' for the M rick
en couple. All day long she was busy
w.".h these errands of grace, or in the
kitchen at the stone house, or in urging
other women to lend n helping hand.
And when she passed along the linen
of the troops she would sometimes hear
the fervent ey of '(iod blebs Lady

To n I anil Tea llnriudil.
Up-to-dnte doctors have for some time
hounded n warning ngainst the nil too
common invalid diet of "toast and tea."
Few things, bay they, are harder for
the weakened stomach to digest than
hot buttered toust. Now the physi
cians' warnings have received reen
forcemunt frcun the French chef, who
biu h; "I nm no doctor, but if 1 were
1 would not let my patients eat hot
buttered toast. I fully belioe it causes
us much indigestion as hot griddle
cakes. In this country the average
woman cats hot toast with quantities
of butter on it every day." Chicago

The cream should nhvnys be strained
Into the churn and tho butter color ndd
ed Immediately, If color Ib to be used.
There should bo no variation In tho
peed of churning, as too fa8t or too
alow a speed will cause a rise in tem
perature, resulting In too soft a butter,
says M. II. Matts In Kansaa Farmer.
Churns must be ventilated a couple of
times after thoy start to let out gases
of fermentation, which aro always pres
ent. Be suro of a proper churning temper
attire, as cream will Honictlmcs pro
duce what Is known ns foaming and
will nearly till the churn. This may bo
caused either by too much speed at
starting, churn too full of cream or
cream being too cold (especially a thin
cream). Tho best remedy Is to divide
the cream Into two churnlugs nud pro
ceed at n proper churning temperature.
In my experience I hnvo found cream
lifter being churned for between four
and live successive hours, then given a
rest of nbout an hour, began to break.
In ten minutes after starting tho soe-1
After the first stop tho cream was
not apparently any nearer the breaking
point than when first started. After tho
butter granules have reached tho tlze
of a "pin's head," or from one-sixth to
one-eighth of an Inch In diameter, the
buttermilk Ib drawn off and strained
through a hair strainer; then water at
tho temperature of 45 to 50 degrees F.,
depending on the temperature of the at
moflnhnro. of nbout tho same nunntitvl
as the buttermilk Is added to the-butter
and the churn revolved a few times. I
Usually one washing Ib sulflclent,
though the wash water should drain
comparatively clear. Tho amount of
washing will depend on the size of the
butter granules and tho condition the
cream Is In. Both under and over ripe
cream will require more washing thnn
properly ripened crenm. Tho Impor
tance of using clean nnd pure wash
water cannot be overestimated.
The butter Is now In a condition to
I snlt, nud the amount to use varies
I widely under different conditions. Salt

The PniKrcia of the Harvester Com
bined Hnskcr nud Shredder.
It is only within recent years that
any attempt hns been made to furnish
tho fanner with corn harvesting ma
chinery that is nt all comparable with
that Ions: aco invented for harvesting
small grain, says Iowa Homestead.. The
immense waste of stover continued for
years nil over the corn belt, and the
figures representing the waste, if they
could be even conservatively estimated,
would be startling Indeed. There Is ev
ery reason to believe, however, that
better conditions will prevail In tho
The corn harvester appeared In 180.",
nnd. although Its Introduction was
somewhat slow, ns Is the case with nil
now ideas, the machine trade papers re
port that about 35,000 harvesters were
sold during the present year, and the
demand wns so great that it could not
be supplied. It Is estimated that within
a very few years the annual sales of
the corn harvester will amount to, 100,
000. Tho com harvester and shredder
made their appearance nt about the
same time and apparently to stay. The
best shredders on the market now husk
the corn nnd shred the stover In one
operation. From 8,000 to 10,000 of
these machines have been sold this sea
son, which Is nearly ns many ns tho
number of thrashing machines that are
A single shredder, like u thrashing
machine, does duty on many farms, so
that the figures representing the sales
of shredders must bo read with this
fact In view in order to appreciate the
extent to which they are being availed
of. To u much larger extent, therefore,
than over before the corn crop will In
the future be a machine crop, ami tho
terrible wastes connected with It In the
past, which made the economist shud
der, will measurably cease.

The bpraylng of peach trees with
whitewash tn the winter to prevent
swelling of fruit buds prematurely has
the effect of bringing off the oyster
shell bark louse or scale. The best for
mula Is to use two pounds of fresh
slaked lime to ono gallon of water and
strain. The louse Is not killed by this
spray, but the whitewash simply loos
ens the hold of tho adult scale, and It
falls to the ground. Sprayed trees are
also more healthy in every way. This
