AS\S \ ARDENT ADVOCATE OF PE-RU-NA.
The Home of Mrs. Lizzie M. Brewer at Westerly , R. I.
In a letter to Dr. Hartman , concerning
the merits of J'e-rti-ua , Mrs. Brewer writes ,
among other things :
"Westerly , R. I.
"Dear Dr. Hartman I find Pe-ru-na a
sure cure for all catarrhal affections so
common In this nart of the country. It
curi's a cold at once. There is no cough
medicine that can at all equal Pe-rn-na. As
for la grippe , there Is no other remedy that
can at all comjmrc with Pe-ru-na.
"I notice Ii medical journals , and from
the testimony of my neighbors , that the
doctors seem < inlte unsuccessful In treating
la grippe , especially In removing the after
effects of la grippe. From personal obser
vation in many cases I know that Pe-ru-na
is a sure specific for these cases.
"I am among the sick a great deal In our
city and have supplied many Invalids with
IV-ru-na , simply because I am enthusiastic
THE EXCELLENCE OF SYRUP OF FIGS
is due not only to the originality and
simplicity of the combination , but also
to the care and skill with which it is
manufactured by scientific processes
known to the CALIFORNIA FIG SYRUP
Co. only , and we wish to impress upon
all the importance of purchasing-
true and original remedy. As the
genuine Syrup of Fig's is manufactured
by the CALIFORNIA FIG SYRUP Co.
only , a knowledge of that fact will
assist one in avoiding the worthless
imitations manufactured by other par
ties. The high standing of the CALI
FORNIA FIG SYRUP Co. with the medi
cal profession , and the satisfaction
which the genuine Syrup of Figd has
given to millions of families , makes
the name of the Company a guaranty
of the excellence of its remedy. It is
far in advance of all other laxatives ,
as it acts on the kidneys , liver and
bowels without irritating or weaken
ing them , and it does not gripe nor
nauseate. In order to get its beneficial
effects , please remember the name of

To the Editor of the Duluth Evening
Herald , Duluth , Minn. :
Dear Sir As to many replies to the
some-seeker of Minnesota , I can cheer
fully say this country is better for a
poor man than Minnesota if he wants to
farm and raise stock. 1 have spent one
winter and two summers which I find
more pleasant than any winter I have
sect' ' 1 Minnesota for eight years. The
soy0 , * s are short , but the effects of long
fJtlCs \ bright sunshine produce a very

same'1 There is plenty of railroad land
to be had very cheap and on long time
payments. A man does not want to
think he can pick up money on the
ground here , but there is lots of it in the
ground and labor will take it out.
There is a vast scope of country north
of Edmonton , Alberta , which can be
settled and a large scope of country
west of Edmonton adapted to ranching
and mixed farming.
This country is the best place I have
ever seen for the cure of consumption. j
I could refer you to different people 1
here who were in the last stages of con
sumption , who are now in perfect
health and able to do any kind of hard
work and are very prosperous.
Hoping this may benefit home-seekers
who are willing to work for an honest
living , I remain yours very truly ,

MISTRESS AND MAID.
stand in need of
MISTRESSES as maids , and
the time has come when house
wives must realize that the relations
between them and their servants can
not be those of slave and his owner.
Moreover , the sooner it is realized by
every mistress that all the cardinal vir
tues are not to be found in a single
individual , the soouer will she establish
the domestic peace of her household.
Even were it possible to find young
women so richly endowed by nature ,
that no fault could be found with them ,
they would be worth more than a few
pounds per annum to any family. Di
rectly we produce servants with an
gelic tempers and an abnormal love for
work , who never want rest or holidays ,
or a watchful eye over them , then may
we rest assured that wages will go up
by-leaps and bounds , and truly they
will be worth whatever they demand.
But until the millennium comes we
have no hope of finding domestics of
this type , and meanwhile our best
chance of securing better service is to
realize that , as the mistress is the pivot
of the whole domestic machinery , she
ought to come much nearer to perfec
tion than those she governs , says the
Lady's Pictorial. And the best mis
tresses are those who do not look for
perfection in servants , and yet strive to
bring them by easy stages to that ideal
state. What is more and of the utmost
importance is that mistresses should
not blind themselves to the fact that
their maids are of like passions with
themselves. They need to be consid
ered in little matters sometimes. Their
work is monotonous , their hours long ,
their duties many , and their * tempta
tions often very great. All these things
are frequently forgotten by those who
employ them , with the result that do
mestics resent being treated as ma
chine's , and rebellion ensues. There is ,
however , a wide distinction between
showing consideration to employes and
pampering them. There is no need
whatever to treat one's servants as if
they were distinguished guests ; but ,
on the other hand , it is a fatal policy to
show them less consideration than
one's dogs , and to act towards them on
ihe principle that as much value as
possible is to be got out of them for
the lowest possible remuneration.
Influenced the Czar.
The international peace movement
has many prominent people as warm
supporters and promoters. One of the
most active is Mrs. Luttner , who before
her marriage was the Countess Kliii-

sky. She is a voluminous writer on the
subject. She has written articles on
international disarmament for most of
the large papers of Germany and Aus
tria. It was after reading her book ,
'Down with Arms , " that the Czar of
Russia resolved to issue his universal
"When Tots Toe In.
The little tots who are inclined to "toe
( n" when they begin to walk can have
this fault quickly rectified if attended
to in time , says the Philadelphia Times.
The mother or nurse should rub ( at
least twice a day ) t-'ie oufer side of the
little legs with a firm upward stroke.
Hold the little foot in your hand in the
correct position. Recollect , do not rub
down , and not on the inner side of
the leg. The object is to nourish and
strengthen the outer muscles , which are
proportionately weak. Begin below
the ankle , and rub to the knee , slowly
and quietly , but not too lightly. This
treatment faithfully persevered in will
sonn correct the trouble.
True Co-operation ,
The unselfishness which brings a
wife into true co-operation , the love
which makes sacrifice a joy , are essen
tial to the success of the woman who
means to prove that fortune is not all
that makes a man rich. She has to rise
above the plane of duty well done , she
Jias to aspire beyond making the best
of things , and become creative. She haste
to produce light and courage , and give
to the faded new brightness , and gild
tiie worn and marred , and lend to all
tliey possess the magic of her smile.
Benefits of College Training.
A contemporary says : "American
girls go to college now by thousands
and tens of thousands as unconcerned
ly as they used to go to the grammar
schools. It Is now expected that a girl
shall go to coiiege if she wants to , quite
is much as boy. ? , and some parents in
moderate circumstances act upon the
principle that it is rather more neces
sary for girls to be well educated to
meet contingencies of life than for
boys , since there are more occupations
wherein young men can succeed in the
world than young women. Apart from
possible professional or business life ,
the future home-and-society-makers of
America go to college for love of study ,
and for the broader and better culture
which college training gives them. II
the great need of a nation is mothers ,
as Napoleon said , it looks as if twen
tieth-century Americans are to have
healthy and well-educated mothers , to
give the best possible start in life.
There is no more nonsense talked about
the health of college girls. Most of theni
improve in strength and in poise of
nerves , during their years with their
books. Early hours , regular tasks and
all the forms of modern girls' athletics
keep up the standard of good health
during the years of special intellectual
training of the daughters of America ,
in all her colleges and universities. "
Woman's Watch Pocket.
The originators of late fashions have
solved a problem which has puzzled
women ever since women's watches
were first made. They have decreed
a new pocket for dresses. That pocket
is a watch pocket , and it is located on
the inner part of the left sleeve , mid
way between the wrist and the elbow.
The little pocket , from t.he outside of
which a circular piece the size of the
37 KW WATCH POCKKT.
watch face has been cut , is convenient
ly seen and can bp readily reached by
the right hand. The flap of the pocket
is padded with soft material , so there
is practically no danger of breaking the
watch. The watch is slipped into the
pocket from the side and buttons se
cure it from falling out. As in the case
of the wrist watches which were much
worn several years ago , the face is al
ways in plain sight , and the time of
day may be seen by the wearer at 2
Wfcen you come to think of it , says
Dorothy Dix , in the New Orleans Pica
yune , the situation is like this : Foi
the great majority of women , theii
sole chance of happiness is bound up
in their husbands and homes. If theii
homes are unpleasant ; if , after the firs'
fervor of love in the honeymoon passes ,
they fail to be companions and chums
with their husbands , they have laic
up for them a future of desolate
Now , this being the case , one would
think that any woman with a single ,
solitary glimmering of reason would , it
only for her own selfish benefit , make
every effort to render herself so agree
able and so attractive that her husband
j would prefer her society to that of any
one else. But do thej * ? Gracious , no'
There is nothing else in the world that
fills me with as much amazement ai
the recklessness with which womei
deal with their husbands. I know
plenty of women who never let theii
husbands make a statement without
contradicting them , who parade their
husband's failings before company , and
who , if there is some one topic that
can always bring on a family row ,
never miss a chance to lug it into the
conversation. And these women actu
ally complain when their husbands geoff
off to seek congenial company else
where. Think of it !
To Break Up a Cold.
It is much more difficult to break 115
a baby's cold than an older person's.
Oiling the throat and chest with some
penetrating oil every night and laying
a warm flannel over it should be done
as soon as a cold is visible. A fev ;
drops of pure olive oil should be given
if there are any signs of a cough. It is
wise to oil the bridge of the nose and
over the eyebrows to loosen a cold in
the head. Always be careful to keep a
baby sufficiently warm. It is safer to
have a hot water bag or jug at the feet.
If the cold grows more severe give a
hot bath in a warm room. Oil thor
oughly the entire body and wrap in f
flannels and blankets.
