How to Keep House.
With all the luxuries and pleasures
of this life , its big enjoyments and
its smaller comforts , there is an offset
or antithesis which we have to con
tend with in the form of aches and
pains. In some way and by some
means every one has a touch of them
in some form at some time. Trilling
as seme of them may be , the risk is
that they will grow to something great
er and rack the system with constant
torture. There is nothing , therefore ,
bf this kind that we have a right to
trifle with. Taken in time , the worst
forms of pains and aches arc easily
subdued and cured by the free use of
St. Jacobs Oil. No well regulated
household should be without a bottle
of this great remedy for pain. It is
the specific virtue of penetration in
St. Jacobs Oil that carries it right to
the pain spot and effects a prompt

Haute , of Edgerton , Wis. , tells
how she was cured of irregular ! *

pains and backache , by the use
of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
"DEAR Mr.s. PIKKHAM : Awhile
ago my health "began to fail because of
female troubles ! The doctor did not
help me. I remembered that my mother
had used Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound on many oc
casions for irregularities and uterine
troubles , and I felt sure that it could

within a week I felt much better , the

ftoisca that Attract Snakes.
It is a noiseless fact that there are
certain kinds of noises which attract
snakes. For instance , the whirr of the
moving machine , instead of scaring
tlie.se reptiles , as might be supposed ,
seems both to allure them and enrage
them,1 and they almost invariably dart
toward it , rearing themselves in front
of the machine , which , of course ,
promptly chops off their heads. In six
months so many as 320 cobras alone

"From my personal experience with Peruna I

Catarrh of the Kidneys a Common Dis
ease Kidney Trouble Often Fails to
Be Regarded as Catarrh by Physi
Catarrh of the kidneys is very com
mon indeed. It is a pity this fact is not
better known to the physicians as well
as the people.
People have kidney disease. They
take some diuretic , hoping to get better.
They never once think of catarrh. Kid
ney disease and catarrh are seldom
associated in the minds of the people ,
and. alas , it is not very often associated
in the minds of the physicians. Too
few physicians recognize catarrh of rhe
kidneys. They doctor for something

There are some Indians in Mendo-

we understand the phrase , but it is
certain that they live on it. Strange

of food , going out into the fields and
pulling up the plant and eating it by
handf uls leaves , stems , flower-
heads and all. These same Indians
use many plants that white men find
no value in , among them seaweeds ,
