Yes , August Flower still has the largest sale
of any medicine in the civilized world. Your
mothers and grandmothers never thought of
using anything else for indigestion or bilious
ness. Doctors were scarce , and they seldom
heard of appendicitis , nervous prostration or
heart failure , etc. They used August Flower
to clean out the system and stop fermenlation
of undigested food , regulate the action of the
liver , stimulate the nervous and organic action
of the system , and that is all they took when
feeling dull and bad with headaches and
other aches. You only need a few doses of
Green's August Flower , in liquid form , to
make you satisfied there is nothing serious
the matter with you. Get Green's Prize

A cheap remedy for coughs and colds is all
right , but you \v nit somethinf ; that will relieve
and cure the more severe and dangerous re
sults of throat and lung trouble. What shall
you do ? Go to a warmer and more regular
climate ? Yes , if possible ; if not possible for
you , then in either case take the only remedy
that has been introduced in all civili/ed coun
tries with success in severe throat and lung
trouble , "Hoschee's German Syrup. " It not
only heals and stimulates the tissues to des
troy the germ disease , but allays inflammation ,
secures easy expectoration , gives a good
night's rest , and cures the patient. Try one
bottle. Recommended many years by all
druggists in the world. Get Green's Prize

When lapses of memory becom

which some victims of this disensi

The bank president congratulates

An editor of a daily paper has laid
[ ilmself open to unkind remarks by
trying to take up a collection in his
rifiice. Happening to want a small
coin , he turned to his fellow worker
and asked for a quarter.
"Ilaveif t jrot it , but hero's a dollar , "
; he man replied as he tossed it over.
The editor put the dollar in his pocket
iml immediately turned to a special
writer at the next desk and said :
"Miss - , could you lend me a quar-

HOW ZULU WOMEN SEW.
Phey re Skewers For Xeedle.s ninl
GirnlTe Sincwo Kor Thread.
The skill of the Zulus of South Africa
ti sewing fur is a household word in
ioutli Africa , and some of the other
ribes compete with them. The needle
mployed is widely different from that
ised by the ordinary needlewomen. In
he first place , it has no eye : in the
econd , it is like a skewer , pointed at
lie end and thick at the other.
The thread is not of cotton , but is
iade of the sinews of various animals ,
lie best being made from the sinews
i the neck of a giraffe. It is stiff ,
lelastic , with a great tendency to
kink" and tangle itself up with any-
Siing near it. Before being used it is
teeped in hot water until it is quite
ift and is then beaten between two
niooth stones , which causes it to sep-
rate into filaments , which can thus be
btained of any length and thickness ,
bus the seamstress has a considera-
le amount of labor before she com-
icnces with the real work in hand.
Finally she squats on the grounder
or no native stands to work or do
aything else who ran possibly help
) and , taking her needle , bores two
sles in the edges of the rug or gar-
; ent on which she is working. The
iread is then pushed through with
te butt of the needle , drawn tight ,
id two more holes are made with
like result , the skewer progressing
; ry slowly , but fast enough for a
umtry where time is of no value
The skin upon which the seamstress
working is damped with water be-
re she commences , and as the damp
read and hide dry out they bring the
ork very closely together.
