Organizer of the Royal Templars of
Temperance , in a recent letter , says :
"i think that a woman naturally
shrinks from making her troubles
public , but restored health has meant
so much to me that 1 feel for the sake
of other suffering women it is my
duty to tell what Peruna has done
for me.
"I suffered for five years with
uterine irregularities , which brought
on hysteria and made me a physical
wreck. I tried doctors from the dif
ferent schools of medicine , but with
out any perceptible change in my
condition. In my derpair I called on
an old nurse , who advised me to try
Peruna. and promised good results if
I would persist and take it regularly.
I thought this was the least I could
do and procured a bottle. I knew as
soon as I began taking it that it was
affecting me differently from any
thing I had used before , and so I kept
on taking it. I kept this up for six
months , and steadily gained strength
and health , and when I had used
fifteen bottles I considered myself
entirely cured. I am a grateful ,
happy woman today.Miss Muriel
Peruna cxrrfes catarrh of the pelvic
organs with the same surety as it
cures catarrh of the head. Peruna
has become renowned as a positive
cure for female ailments simply be
cause the ailments are mostly due
to catarrh. Catarrh is the cause of
the trouble. Peruna cures the ca
tarrh. The sj'mptoms disappear.
work without the greatest exhaustion.
This is a very common sight and is
almost always due to pelvic catarrh.
It is worse than foolish for so many )
women to suffer year after year with ai
disease that can be permanently cured.
Peruna cures catarrh permanently. It
cures old chronic cases as well as a slight
attack , the only difference being in the
length of time that it should be taken to
effect a cure.

Hogs of 200 to 250 pounds weight
ire best for family UFG In dressing
a hog It should be so hung that it can
be split down the back , and the sides
allowed to separate , the head being
cut off. The leaf and some other sur
plus fat should be removed at
This allows the meat to cool thorough
ly , and it Is in good shape to handle.
The meat bairel should be kept in a
cool place without freezing. A good
tvay to keep the hams and shoulders
after being cured is to slice and fry
ana pack in jars , covering with hot
lard. Fresh pork may be kept this
way in hot weather , but it must be
thoroughly cooked. While the cured
meat requires much less cooking to
preserve it.
Allow the hog to thoroughly cool be
fore cutting , carefully trim hams and
shoulders and split the sides in two
lengthwise. Sprinkle bottom of bar
rel with fine salt , and rub each piece
Df meat with salt. Pack in barrel with
hams on the bottom , shoulders next
and sides on top. After three days
cover the meat with brine made as
follows : Water , S gallons ; salt. 12
pounds ; sugar , 3 pounds ; saltpeter , 3
ounces ; concentrated lye , 3 teaspoons.
Boil all together and skim. After coolIng -

brine from four to six weeks , then

be strong enough to bear up an egg.

Rain and Snn Proof Coop.
I have a chicken coop which I think
suits me better than any other I have
tried before. This coop is made out
of cheap lumber. The bottom is hing.d
at the back to the upper part. At the
front I drive two staples to fasten the
coop down so as it can be moved
about. The upper part conies down
over the floor all the way so that you
can put a nail through the staple
The shade in the front is to keep the
sun and rain out. These coops are
very easy to clean. .7. C. Recraft in

Care of Winter Apj > le > .
Gathering mid. storing Avinter apples
is an important duty that must be at
tended to before the heavy fro--ts begin
in the fall. Apples that aie to be ko..t
over winter should be cart-fully picked
and placed in IwirreK After picking
they should be left in the open air for
some time , as this tends to thoroughly
ripen them. They also pass through a
sweat at first , and it is much better if
they can be left exposed so that all fnir-
face moisture is evaporated. Fruit
should be placed in a cool , dark cellar.
In some instances where there are a
few barrels of specially good apples
the practice is adopted of wrapping
the apples in paper. This prevents
them from coming in contact with one
another and will msure their keeping-
It usually pays to pick over apples two
or three times during the winter , so
that those showing signs of decay may
be discarded. Windfalls should never
be placed among apples that are hand-
picked. A plentiful supply of apples
to be nsed in the family during the
winter will contribute much to the
general healthfulness of every member
of the family. Iowa Homestead.
A Primitive Threahiiijr Machine.
A common sight in the agricultural
districts of Hungary is two women
treading out grain by means of a
beam. The woman seated on the
ground takes a bundle of grain and
puts it under one end of the beam.
When the grain is is place the woman
leaning on the pole for support takes
a step backward which has the effect
of raising the broad , flat end of the
beam , and making the other end fall
in a hole made for that purpose. Then
a quick step forward , with some little
pressure , brings the thick end of the
beam down on the wheat and flattens
It out so effectually as to separate
the grain from the husks.
Dairy Farm Side Lines.
Along with dairy farming naturally
goes the ponltry business. And a nice ,
clean , profitable business it is , too.
Sere is a fine field for the women
folks. They naturally take more pride
In the chickens than the man d es , al
though now and then we do find men
who enter heart and soul into the keep
ing of poultry. There is always a good
ieal of skimmed milk on the dairy
farm which would be apt to go to
waste were it not for the hens. They
ire the greatest of scavengers. Every
Irop of the sour and skimmed mflk is
ajdelicious morsel for the hen , and sine
will turn it to good account , too.
Pork also adds its mite , and it is not
a small mite , either , to the revenues
of the up-to-date dairy farm. During
the last few years pork has sold at
splendid figures. For the money It
brings in , pork involves perhaps as
little labor as anything about the farm.
Here , too , is a place where one must
be in love with his business. That Is
the only key to success.

The Farm and the Man.
How any farm should be crnpppo
depends upon where the farm is , its
character and location. Some farms
are by nature pasture farms , becatso
they are not adapted to cultivation ;
other farms invite tillage. Size , too ,
is a controlling factor. A crop rota
tion and schedule of farm work thai
is admirable for fifty acres may be
wholly impracticable for five hundred
or a thousand. The ambition to own
and cultivate broad acres is an Ameri
can disease. This disease is not so
much a desire to add to worldly pos
sessions as it is for a gratification o ]
the ownership of dominion ; when an
alyzed it will be found to be a feature
of man's kinship Avith nature.
Another arid the most important fac
tor of a 11 * is the man himself. The
man makes the farm good or bad , as
he makes everything else that comes
under his control The experience ol
one farmer is invaluable to another ,
but each farm is nevertheless a-separ
ate and local problem which the farm
er must think out and work out him
