WHAT DOES IT MEAN ?
It means it is the purest made.
I Soaps , strong with alkali , will eat
\ And burn the clothes , and leave them frayed ,
But Ivory Soap is clean and sweet.
It washes out the stain and dirt ,
And leaves the fabric all unhurt.

Cure Yourself at Home. only remedies which the doctors ever give for
. blood poison.
The doctors are wholly unable to get rid of
this vile poison , and only attempt to heal up the outward appearance of the
disease the sores and eruptions. This they do by driving the poison into the
system , and endeavor to keep it shut in with their constant doses of potash
and mercury. The mouth and throat and other delicate parts then break out
into sores , and the fight is continued indefinitely , the drugs doing the system
more damage than the disease itself. '
Mr. H. L. Myers , 100 Mulberry St. , Newark , X. J. , says : 'I had spent a
hundred dollars with the doctors , when I realized that
they could do me no grood. I had large spots all over my
bcdy , and these soon broke out into running sores , and I
endured all the suffering which this vile disease pro
duces. I decided to try S. S. S. as a last resort , and was
soon greatly improved. I followed closely your 'Direc
tions for Self-Treatment , ' and the large splotches on my
chest began to grow paler and smaller , and before long
disappeared entirely. I was soon cured perfectly and my
skin has been as clear as glass ever since. I cured my
self at home , after the doctors had failed completely. "

acts in an entirely different way from potash and mercury it forces the
poison out of the system and gets rid of it entirely. Hence it cures the
disease , while other remedies only shut the poison in where it lurks forever ,

in which they sometimes did it
While before Petersburg doing siege
work in the summer of 1864 , our men
had wormy hard tack served out to
them. It was a severe trial to the men.
Breaking open the biscuits and finding
live worms in them , they would throw
the pieces in the trenches , although the
orders were to keep the trenches clean
A brigade officer of the day , seeing
some of these scraps along cur front ,
called out sharply to our men :
"Throw that hard tack out of the
trenches. " Then , as the men promptly
gathered it up , he added , "Don't you
know that you've no business to throw
hard tack in the trenches ? "
Out from the injured soldier hea
there came the reasonable explanation ,
"We've thrown it out two or three
times , sir , but it crawls back. "

On the principle that to some persona
even old stories are new , this one , of
the royal princelings of England , ia
given in Mr. G. W. E. Russell's recent
book , "Collections and Recollections : "
An English gentleman who had a de
formed foot was going to visit the
queen at Osborne , and before hia arrival
the queen and Prince Albert debated
whether it would be well to warn the
Prince of Wales aud the prince&s royal
of hia physical peculiarity , so as to
avoid their making embarrassing re
marks , or to leave it to their own good
The latter course waa adopted. Lord
duly arrived. The foot elicited no
remark from the royal children , and the
visit passed off with success. Next day
the princess royal asked the queen-
" Where is Lord Y"
"He has gone back to London , dear. "
"Oh , what a pity I Ho had promised
to show Bertie and me his foot ! "
They had caught him in a quiet spot
and made their own terms with the
His Hnlf Wny Scheme.
Not long ago a Pittsburg lifo insur
ance agent persuaded a Chinaman to
take out a policy of § 3,000. The latter
had no clear idea of the transaction ,
but understood that on paying the
premiums promptly ho would be enti
tled to $3,000 some time. He began
bothering the agent for the money after
a couple of weeks had passed , and the
agent tried to explain to him that he
would have to die before he could get
it. The Chinaman fell down a cellar-
way and was badly hurt. His frienda
tried to attend to him without calling
in a doctor. When they did call one in
two days later , the doctor was angry.
"Why didn't yon call me sooner ? " he
asked. "Thia man ia half dead now. "
Next day the injured man's brother
waa at the insurance office with a claim
for § 2,500. "You're not entitled to
anything on this , " said the insurance
agent , "until the man ia dead. "
"Doctol say him half died , " an
swered the brother "Why he no glet

Good Horse Sense.
The Mexican burros ascertain where
to dig for water by closely observing
the surface of the ground. One ob
server writes :
"We had found water in an arroya
of a sufficient quantity to make cof
fee , whou we saw three burros search
ing for water. They passed several
damp places , cxainiuiug the ground
closely , when the loader halted near us
and began to paw a hole in the hot ,
dry sand , llavinj ? dug a hole some
thing over a foot iu depth , lie backed
out and watched it intently. To our
surprise it soon began Jo Oil with wa
ter. Then he advanced , took a drink
and stepped asjde for his companions
to drink.VIieu they went away , we
drank from their well and found the
water to be much cooler than any we
had found for many a day. There is
no witchcraft about Mexican burros ,
but they have good horse sense. "
A Strniife Test of 3Iniiliood.
The ancient Clan Macleocl used to
exercisa a strange test to prove theman-
iood of their chieftains. At Dunvegan
castle , on the island of Skye , there is
reserved the large horn known as
'Rory More'a Horn. " Thia capacioua
vessel holds rather more than a bottle
ind a half of liquor. According to the
Did custom , every laird of Macleod was
jbliged on his coining of age to fill this
jorn with claret and without once lay-
ng it down to drain it to the dregs ,
rbis was taken as a proof of his man-
jood , and he was then deemed a worthy
successor to the lairds of the past
