fltay^tny at home, inv heart, and rest;
Home-keeping hearts are happiest,
For those that wander they know not
Are full of trouble and full of care,
To stay at home is best.
Weary and homesick and distressed,
They wander east, they wander west,
And are baffled and beaten and blown
By the winds of the wilderness of doubt;
To stay at home is best.
Then stay at home, my heart, and rest;
The bird is safest in its nest;
O’er all that flutter their wings and fly,
A hawk is hovering in the sky ;
To stay at Ik me is best.
If a mother does not lay aside her
courtesy with her company dress, i( a
father is refined in speech when the
door has closed after the guest, the
child will learn to be habitually polite
and modest—for good manners are
better taught by example than by
precept. It is often noticed that girls
who have grown up in retirement and
simplicity have shown such elegant
tact and behavior as to astonish high
bred ladies. “Where has the little
one learned it ?” exclaims some one
of them. “She behaves like a queen;
and my daughter, who has been edu
cated in Paris—only just look at her!
There she stands and turns her hack
to that lady! IIow improper!” Tho
mother does not reflect that her
daughter has been taught man)’ rules
of behavior, but retains very few.
But “the little one” has imbibed cour
tesy with the air of her home. Her
mother has taught her few rules of
politeness, but has set an example
of high bred courtesy. Tho girl has
acquired so unconsciously the art of
polite behavior that she feels what is
and what is not “good form.” In her
home she has never known a word, a
look, an act that differs from the
words, looks, and acts used iu polite
society. When she first stepped from
her father’s house into an assembly-
room where well-bred people had
gathered, she simply transferred her
self to a larger hut not different
A man went into a druggist’s shop

Thomasville, Oa., Aug. 19, 1889.
Most women naturally look forward to
matrimony as their proper sphere in life, but
they should constantly boor in mind that a
fair, rosy face, bright eyes, and a healthy,
well-developed form, are the best passports
to a happy marriage. All those wasting dis
orders, weaknesses, and functional irregulari
ties peculiar to their sex, destroy beauty
and attractiveness and make life miserable.
An unfailing specific for these maladies is to
be found in Dr. Pierce’s Favorite Prescription.
It is the only medicine for women, 6old by
druggists, under a positive guarantee
from the manufacturers, that it will give
satisfaction in every case, or money will be re
funded. This guarantee lias been printed on
the bottle-wrappers, and faithfully carried
out for many years. §1.00 per Bottle, or Six
