Doctor Cured Her vritli Cuticura.
"I have a cousin in Rockiugham
County , who once had a skin disease
from her birth until she was six years
of age. Her father had spent a for
tune on her to get her cured and none
of the treatments did her any cood.
Old Dr. G suggested 'that he try
the Cuticura Remedies , which he did.
"When he commenced to use it the child
was almost a solid scab. He had used
It about two months and the child
was well. I was there when they com
menced to use your Cuticura Reme
dies. I stayed that week and then re
turned home and stayed two weeks
and then went back and stayed with
them two weeks longer , and when 1
went home I could hardly believe she
was the same child. Her skin > vas as
soft as a baby's without a scar on it. I
have not seen her in seventeen years ,
but I have heard from her and the last
time I heard from her she was well.

The luiock-out Blow.
The blow which knocked out Corbett
was a revQlation to the prize fighters.
'From ' the earliest days of the ring the
knock-out blow was aimed for the jaw ,
the temple or the jugular vein. Stomach
punches were thrown in to worry and
weary the lighter , but if a scientific man
had told one of the old fighters that the
most vulnerable spot was the region of
the stomach , he'd have laughed at him
for an ignoramus. Dr. Pierce is bringing

Utilizing : Corn Fodder.
It is desirable to utilize all the food
value there is In the corn fodder ,
though the usual way of feeding it to
the stock Is a very wasteful method.
Where the daily supply of fodder Is
thrown In the barnyard at feeding
time , what the cattle do not eat Is
trampled down and destroyed , so far
as the feeding value is concerned. The
leaves and the tops are all stock will
eat From one-third to one-half the
length of the fodder is readily eaten In
racks without cutting. When the stalks
are heavy , coarse and hard , the upper
half may be cut for feed with a sharp
broadax and heavy block if but few
cattle are fed. For a larger herd we
have adopted a large shearing knife ,
homemade , which soon shears enough
for a day's feeding.
The cutting knife or shears is best
made from an old blade of a crosscut
saw. After the handles have been re
moved , get a stout piece of iron ( a )
about eight inches long and one and
one-quarter inches thick. Have about
five inches of this silt up to receive the
back of the saw.
Punch holes through both and rivet
together. Near the end of this iron
have a hole drilled or turn an eye on
it to receive a strong bolt Rivet a
strong handle on the other end , as
shown at c , long enough to give a good
leverage , say two and one-half to three
feet. Grind the blade down to a good ,
sharp cutting edge , attach the cutter
at d to a strong post or upright so it
will have plenty of swing. Put a heavy
block underneath , and it is ready to
cut or shear the bundles as they are
fed by a boy or man. Farm and Home.
Silos Scarce in Oklahoma.
Most of my 200 acres under cultiva
tion is farmed by renters. Cotton Is
my main crop. In addition to this , I
grow oats and Kaffir corn , says an
Oklahoma farmer. This year I have
on my farm seventy acres of cotton ,
twenty-five acres of oats , sixty acres
of Kaffir corn , five acres of cowpeas
and thirty acres of weeds caused by
continual overflowing during the plant
ing season. I do not practice any sys
tematic rotation of crops. I have no
silo , and do not believe there is one
in the county. Most of the grain raised
is feed , but some is sold. From my
forty head of grade Hereford stock
cattle I realize some profit
Bran and Oil Meal for Horses.
An Illinois stockman who has had
muck experience in feeding horses and
cattle says : "I consider oats and corn ,
with bran and oil meal , the bast farm
feeds for horses and whole and ground
corn , with bran and oil meal , the best
for beef cattle. I use silage and mixed
feed twice a day , and do not shred
corn fodder. I grow Reids' yellow
Dent corn , which averages about forty
bushels per acce. I cut thirty-five
acres each year and use the corn har
vester. I have twenty-five Shire horses
and 100 Hereford cattle. "
Value ol L.lne Breeding : .
To the man who knows what he'
wants In colts , the study of pedigree is'
a very Important matter. The power
to perpetuate characteristics In horses
Is established by being kept up for
a long time. A sire is usually prepo
tent ftt proportion as he is line-bred or
otherwise. Line-bred means bred with
in the limits of one family for at least
several generations. The closer the re
lationship at the outset of the line
breeding , and the longer the duration
of such breeding , the more prepotent
the sire is likely to be.
Feeding : Animals ;
The common mode of feeding ani
mals is to give them grain in a separate
trough from hay or fodder , and at dif
ferent tunes. Such method Is preferred
because it saves labor , but the best re
sults are obtained by mixing the ground
grain with coarse food that has been
passed through the feed cutter. Less
food will then be required to obtain re
sults , because the mixed food will be
Letter digested and assimilated than
when the substances are given sepa
Kinds of Bees.
There are about 5,000 species of the ,
wild bees , all with interesting ways of
their own. Among them is a species
whose females are veritable Amazons
and carry more and better weapons
than which deposit their eggs In the
nest of others , the progeny of both liv
ing peaceably together until maturity ,
when they separate. Then there Is the.
tailoring bee which cuts leaves with
his scissor-like jaws and fits a snug
lining of the leaf material into his cave-
Use the Feed Cutter.
All animals on the farm prefer foods
that may not be relished by some oth
ers. Tiie farmer should take advan
tage of this fact and utilize all the ma
terials that might be wasted If there
were some animals that would accept
them. A judicious use ofhe feed cut
ter , mixing a little bran or meal with
the food , and tempting the animal with
a variety , will render serviceable even
such foods as wheat straw and corn
fodder. There are several modes of
. serving corn fodder that will make it
' acceptable to dainty animals.
How to Pack :

grocery store , makes an excellent egg
carrier when treated in the following

gated brown paper board used as
wrapping for breakable articles and
line the sides and bottom of the pail ,
as shown In the cut Then cut circles
from other pieces of the same material
to use between each layer of eggs ,
smaller circles for the bottom , Increas
ing in size as the top is approached.
Eggs can be gathered from the nests
in such a pail and carried to market
with reasonable assurance that few , it
any , breakages will occur. The cor
rugated paper can be obtained in large
sheets from grocers , to whom it has
come packed about breakable goods.
Barley o-s a Feed for Hogs.
The advisability of feeding barley
to pigs , and the methods to pursue in so
doing , is well worthy of agitation. That
pigs are desirable on the farm is an
established fact Food must be pro
vided for them , and so far the one most
generally used has been corn , either
alone or with shorts and milk. But in
much of the northwest corn cannot be
matured , or Is a crop too uncertain and
expensive to be practicable. In such
regions , barley Is a reliable crop ; and
if it can be utilized generally for pigs
a great advantage to the industry will
have been secured.
Food Value of Corn in Silase.
One acre of corn put m a silo will
furnish three cows all the silage they
will eat for a period of 200 days , forty
pounds a day each. Thus ten acres
of corn so used will supply thirty cows
for the same length of time. In addi
tion to the silage ration , the cows will
need a little good hay and a protein
ration of bran and gluten feed. This
sort of ration will secure profitable re
sults from any dairy of cows.

shown in the cut. Then place it on the
outside of the ladder to be length
ened , bore two holes through each side
piece , put a bolt in each hole , and the
ladder Is four feet longer. After using
it can be changed to original size much
quicker than if tied with ropes , and
it's safer. The top ends of the ladder
should be cut out to receive the lower
rung of the extension. John Upton , in
Curlner "Wire Cuts.
Here Is some useful information
from Dakota man. He says : "There
are a great many remedies used but I
have found the following to be one of
the best : Common machine oil and
alum. Take alum and burn on stove
till white and dry ; pulverize fine. Sat
urate wound with oil , then cover the
wound with alum , dusted on with a
dust spray. This may be applied once
or twice daily. "
Feeding : Carrots.
Experiments in the feeding of car
rots , beets and small potatoes to cows
show that milk fever is less liable to
occur when cows are fed liberally on
root crops than when they are confined
to hay and grain. No corn should be
given six weeks before calving. Lin
seed meal may be allowed with the
hay , w-hich should be cut fine and the
linseed meal sprinkled over it
Much dissatisfaction Is often exper
ienced by cream producers because of
differences reported in the test of their

Proper Way to Dress Capons.
In dressing capons they should al
ways be dry-picked and the feathers
left on the neck , wings , legs and rump ,
and the tail and wing feathers should
be left In. Do not dress out any capons
pens that weigh less than seven pounds
each. Keep the small ones until they
grow a little heavier.
Is it a Catarrh Remedy , or a Tonc9-
Some people call Peruna a great tonic. Others refur to Peruna as
great catarrh remedy. v
Which of these people are right ? Is it more proper to call Pemna ;
catarrh rcTicdy ban to call it a tonic ? !
Our reply is , that Peruna is both a tonic and a catarrh remedy. Indeed '
there can be no effectual catarrh remedy that is not also a tonic. ,
In order to thoroughly relieve any case of catarrh , a remedy must not !
only have a specific action on tue mucous membranes affected by the ca
tarrh , but it must have a general tonic action on the nervous system.
Catarrh , even in persons who are otherwise strong , is a weakened condk
tion of some mucous membrane. There must be something to strengthen !
the circulation , to give tone to the arteries , and raise tne vital forces.
Perhaps no vegetable remedy in the world has attracted so much at *
tention , from medical writers as HYDRASTIS CAKADENSIS. The
wonderful efficacy of this herb has been recognized many years , and i |
growing in its hold upon the medical profession. When joined with
CUBEBS and COPAIBA a trie of medical agents is formed in Perun $
which constitutes a specific rrrdy for catarrh that in the present stattf
of medical progress cannot bo improved upon. This action reinforced by *
such renowned tonjcs as COLLMSOKIA CANADENSIS , CORYDAUS
FORMOSA and CEDRON SEED , ought to make this compound an ideai
remedy for catarrh in all its stages and locations in the body.
From a theoretical standpoint , therefore , Peruna is beyond criticism
The use of Peruna , confirms this opinion. Numberless testimonials fronfl
every quarter of the earth furnish ample evidence that this judgment ia
not over enthusiastic. When practical experience confirms a well-grounded
theory the result is a truth that cannot be shaken.

HOTF Jjincoln "Won.
The lawyer whose honesty Is proved
has the confidence of the judge and j
jury. A story of Abraham Lincoln is
an illustration : He was appointed to I
defend one charged with murder. The j
crime was a brutal one ; the evidence J
entirely circumstantial , the accused a
stranger. Feeling was high and against
the friendless defendant. On the trial
Lincoln drew from the witnesses full
statements of what they saw and knew.
There was no effort to confuse , no at
tempt to place before the jury the facts
other than they were. In the argu
ment , after calling attention to the
fact that there was no direct testi
mony , Lincoln reviewed the circum
stances , and after conceding that this
and that seemed to point to defendant's
guilt , closed by saying that he had re- !
fleeted much on the case , and while it ;
seemed probable that defendant was !
guilty , he was not sure , and looking |
the jury straight in the face , said : i
"Are you ? " The defendant was ac
quitted , and afterward the real orimj j
inal was detected and punished. How
different would have been the conduct
of many lawyers ! Some would have j
striven to lead the judge into technical j
ecrors with a. view to an appeal to a j
higher court. Others would have be
come hoarse in denunciation of wit
nesses , decrying the lack of positive j
testimony and the marvelous virtue of j
a reasonable doubt. The simple. |
straightforward way of Lincoln , backed
by the confidence of the jury , won.
