Al>out eight years ago 1 got in such a low state of health I was unable to keep house for three in the family. I had dull, tired,dizzy feelings, cold feet and hands nearly all the time and could scarcely sleep at all. The doctor said I had a severe case of ulceration and without an operation I would always be an invalid, but I told him I wanted to wait awhile. Our druggist advised my husband to get Lydia K. Pinkham's Vegetable ('ompound and it has entirely cured me. Now I keep house f(»r seven and work in the garden some, too. 1 am so thankful I goi this mcdicine. I feel as though it saved my life and have recommended it to others and they have been benefited’’.—Mra.W. E. LiNDsisY,U. Ii. 3, Tennille, Ga. If you want special advice write to Lydia R.

UTILIZE THIi SUN’S HEAT, I Alexander Oraham Hell Sugg;e<«ts Conserving It In Oil, Of course water can only be healed ro the boiling lemperaiure, but there ure many liquids ihat can be heated to a very much high er leinperanire without boiiint!. I have taken a tumbler ol' i)live oil and heated it by means ul a thin iron wire connected with a voltaic battery, i placed in the tumbler of nil a test tube HtleJ with water, in a short time the water was boil ing, but the oil remained perl'ectly quiescent. U' you siorc up Inn oil instead of water, you will have at your command a source of heat able to do all your cooking and even produce siean> power to work machinery.

No, he never balked at working but when he was through at once Right down the grass was father with the children doing stunts, All of us would pile upon him, and he’d welcome all the pack. But I'm wondering after playtime did we stay there—on his back ? Wasn’t strong on dissipation; said his “gambol on the green ' Was to till the platter faster than the kids could lick it clean, And Ihe next best game he knew ol was a equal one to beat, It was keeping leather covers up to the supply of feet. Always on the job was lather, plugging steadylike and strong, Never making any noise, but helping all his little world along, And to think—Lord, ain’t it funny you can see things years and years, And yet never know you’ve seen them till your eyes are blind with tears? Quit his job one day and left us, smiling as he went away, Kulogy seems all so foolish. What can anybody say? Seemed like even in his leaving he was saving someone bother, For the one word on the granite which lies over him is “Father." DISAPPOINTED HORSE, Didn’t Know the l.e.ves on «o- man's Hat were Artilklal. That a horse, in spite of his “horse sense" can be pitifully de ceived by appearances was demon strated in a telling manner. A young lady was wailing patiently for a car going easi, when a horse and wagon owned by a huckster stopped ahnost before her! The horse, a friendly looking animal gradually edged up to the curb near the young woman, who smiled graciously and patted him on ihe nose. As the car approach ed she walked slowly toward the track and was waiting for the car door to op^n when the friendly an* imal slipped up behind her and with a sudden plunge grasped the bunch of green leaves from her new spring hat. After a brief tussle with hat pins and yellow curls, the horse man aged to wrest the hat from the young woman and marched oft chewing what he evidently thought a meal of fine green. The horse chewed the milliner's painted leaves, and Hnding them not to his taste dropped the hat, which was returned to its owner—Milwaukee Jouenal.
