Mexican Mustang Liniment for horse ailments, for cattle ailments, for sheep ailments. The most sensible thing to do when suffering from Bruises or Cuts is to treat the wound with Mexican Mmstamg Liniment, because it is noted for its ability to drive out sore ness and inflammation, after which it heals the damaged flesh in a remarkably short space of time. For open wounds soak a cloth with the liniment and bind on the same as you would a poultice. For other hurts apply freely and rub It well In. For 3IAN, BEAST or POULTRY. Mexican Mustang Liniment is a sure remedy for curing Scaly Legs among poultry. Seasons and Styles. Come and go but the appetite remains the same.

' ALL OVER THE HOUSE. Air Your Bedding, but Do Not Place Pillows In the Sun. In airing beds the most thorough, careful housekeeper often errs through her very thoroughness. She will shake the sheets, blankets, etc., and hang them out of the window and over having them jail ex posed as much as possible to the direct rays of the sun and in the strongest breeze, and this is just what should be done. Then the pil lows will be taken up and thumped until they are soft and fluffy and placed in the very sunniest spot, and this is all wrong. The sun will draw the oil from the feathers, and the pillows will have a rancid, dis agreeable odor. Expose them to the air daily, be as thorough as you please in this, and place the pillow slips in the sun if you wish, but do not make the mistake of giving pil lows, bolsters, cushions or anything containing feathers a long sun bath or you will do them more harm than good. —Exchange. Rolled Jelly Cake. Three eggs, one cupful of sugar, three tablespoonfuls of cream or one tablespoonful of melted butter and one cupful of pastry flour and one level teaspoonful of baking powder sifted together. Beat the yolks of the eggs until they arc thick and light, add the sugar and beat again. Beat the whites of the eggs until they are stiff, mix them with the yolks and sugar and beat all to gether until very light. Stir in the cream or melted butter and then sift in the flour, adding it a little at a time. Butter long, shallow pans and spread the dough on them very thin. Bake in a moderate oven; when it is done turn it out, spread the bottom with jelly and roll it up while it is warm. Trim off the edges and put it away so it will not unroll until ready to serve. Novel Pincushion. Children’s toy scales can be made into most novel pincushions at a very small cost. Procure some very thin pasteboard and cut it into the form of weights, the size varying according to the size of the scales. The pieces of card must be neatly covered with dark iron colored silk and joined together. Next make a 6ilk pad to be tilled with wadding or sawdust and insert it on the top of the weights, gluing it firmly in. A tiny ring sewed in the middle gives the weight a realistic appearance, and the number of pounds it repre sents can be painted on the side. The pins are placed in the pad and the whole weight glued into the scales. The scales can be prevented from moving up and down by means of a little gilt wire fixing them in place. A Bodroom “Settle.” An ingenious and convenient sub stitute for a “settle” in a sleeping apartment where space is limited is made in this way: Have a broad, stout shelf with eidedike arms at tached by a carpenter to the foot board of the bedstead at the same height as the regulation settle or corner seat. If the board be of the same variety of wood as the bed stead, so much the better; otherwise it may be stained to match. Make a cushion for this seat or pile it with cushions and it will make a comfortable resting place. Homemade Porch Screen. A porch screen can be made at home by covering an old frame or anew one, on the inner side of which the cabinet maker has put a wide bookshelf, with denim, rice matting or Japanese calico. The screen of the poster collector is also a neat thing, made by the devotee herself, the posters being irregu larly arranged on a foundation of thin wood and protected by lengths of glass the exact size of the screen, each panel framed in oak or cherry, hand carved. Candles In the Room. It is always well to have a candle in the bedroom whether oil, gas or electricity is burned, in the case of an emergency it will always he just what is wanted, and at the same time it is clean, safe and cheap. Have low, plain candlesticks, which are easy to keep clean, with a base broad enough to catch the dirt and be a safe receptacle for the matches. To carry a candle from one room to another is always a safer plan than to carry a lamp.—New' York Her ald. An Artistic Screen. An artistic screen recently de signed for a summer cottage is made of gray blue linen. It is a three fold screen and on each fold an in ner panel is drawn, leaving a wide margin. This is outlined irregular ly with gilt. Within the center panel a sketchy design of cedar branches is painted, starting at the bottom. A bit of gilt appears here and there on the foliage, and to the entire panel a greenish blue wash has been applied. The Real Friend. When the clouds hang dark *nd heavy O’er the path that you must tread, And the thorns of care and trouble Round your feet are thickly spread, Sweet it is if those about you Seem to give your troubles heed, But the real friend comes and asks you “Say, old friend, how much d’ye need?” When disaster dark befalls you Aijd you lose your house and lands, It is sweet to feel the kindly Grasp of sympathetic hands : But there’s one whose words arc sweet When he gives your troubles heed — He’s the man who comes and asks you: “Say, old friend, how much d’ye need?” When the grim and dark death angel Passes through your open door, And the babe you loved so dearly Plays about your loved knees no more Flowers scattered‘round the coftin Solace stricken hearts that bleed, But the best consoler whispers: “Say, old friend, how much d’ye need?” When you see a friend in trouble Don’t stand off and softly sigh, Walk straight up to him and greet him : Look him squarely in the eye ; Say you’re sorry, anti then prove it By a quick and friendly deed — Pull your purse and softly whisper: “Say old friend, how much d’ye need?” —Ex. BEWARE OF THE KNIFE. No profession has advanced more rap idly of late than surgery, but it should not be used except when absolutely necessary. In cases of piles for example it is seldom needed. DeWitt’s Witch Hazel Salve cures quickly and perma nently. Unequalled for cuts, bruises, wounds, skin diseases. Accept nocoun terfeits. ‘I was so troubled with bleed ing piles that I lost much blood and strength,” says J. 0. Philips, Paris, 111. “DeWitt’s Witch Hazel Salve cured me in a short time.” Soothes and heals. Jno. H. Blackbithn. Bartlesville, Ga. L. Holmes, Milner, Ga. Continuous Performance. Into an ounce of brandy put a small dose of cocaine, drink the mix ture and in ten minutes you will find yourself in the mental and nervous condition which is the normal state of the citizen of Butte, Mont., says the Boston Tran script. Men work in the mines and smelters in three eight hour shifts, and the stores, restaurants, theaters, etc., are regulated accordingly. So the life of Butte is literally a “con tinuous performance.” There is no distinction between night and day. It is glare and hustle- all the time, and tliere are no old men in Butte. Big Necks. The marquis of Salisbury wears the biggest collar in parliament; it is exactly nineteen and a half inches in circumference. The biggest col lar in the house of commons en circles the neck of Sir William liar court and is eighteen inches around. Sir William designed his own col lar, and if it is not a thing of beauty it is expansive and comfortable. The highest collar ever worn in parlia ment was that which graced the neck of Bobby Spencer; it was four and a half inches in depth. Jarred the General. General Fred Grant’s son, U. S. ITT., is at West Point, now a first class man and cadet adjutant. Ear lier in his course his father was somewhat anxious about him and wrote to an ollieial of the academy, a contemporary of his own, asking how the lad was getting along. He received this reassuring if somewhat dissembling reply: “You needn’t worry. The boy stands higher in everything than you did in any thing.” The general tells this story himself. Young Plants Every farmer knows that some plants grow better than others. Soil may be the same and seed may seem the same but some plants are weak and others strong. And that’s the way with children. They are like young plants. Same food, same home, I same care but some grow big | and strong while others stay an all and weak. Scott’s Emulsion offers an . :asy way out of the difficulty. ■ Child weakness often means j starvation, not because of lack of food, hut because the food i loes not feed. Scott’s Emulsion really feeds and gives the child growing strength. Whatever the cause of weak ness and failure to grow — Scott’s Emulsion seems to find | it and set the matter right.
