A lady friend of mine has for several .rears

and improve her complexion; but these local
applications were only temporary and left her
skin in a worse condition.
I recommend an internal preparation

Granted, most heartily, farmer
Brown; this niust-have-monev condi

are ways and ways for getting it.
Some ways are hard; the agricultural
way is very hard. Farmer Brown nods
assent. Cotton raising in Catawba is a
hard way, and if I am not woefully ' IS tuere are snian politicians; and the
mistaken it is going to make times difference between the great and the

: Zchariah Hodgson was not naturally
an ill-natured man. It was want of re
flection more than a corrupt and ungen
erous heart that -fed hira to consider his
wife in the light of an inferior being,
and to treat her more like a slave than
an equal. If he met with anything
abroad to ruffle his temper, his wife was
sure to suffer when he came home.
His meals were always ill-cooked, and
whatever the poor women did to please
him was sure to have a contrary effect.
She bore his ill-hnmor in silence for a
long time, but finding it to increase,
adopted a method of reproving him for
his unreasonable conduct which had
the happiest effect.
One day,'as Z-schariah was going to
his daily avocation, after breakfast, he
purchased a large codfish and sent it
home with directions to his wife to
have it cooked for dinner. As no par
ticular mode of cooking was prescribed
the good wife well knew that whether
she boiled it, or fried it or made it into
a stew, her hnsland would scold her
when he came home. But she resolv
ed to please him once, if possible, and
therefore cooked portions of it in sev
eral different ways. She also with
some little difficulty proenred an am
phibious animal from a brook at the
back of the house aud put it into the
pot. In due season her husband came
home; several dishes were placed on the
tabl,e and with a frowning, fault-finding
look the moody man commenced
"Well, wife, did you get the fish I
"Yes, my dear."
"I should like to know how you have
cooked it I will bet that you have

the cover.) I thought so. Whv in

Boiled fish! Chips and porridge! If
vou had been one of the most stupid of
womankind roti would have made it

taining an excellent stew."
''Aly dear," said she, 1 was resolved
to please you. There is vour favorite
"Favorite dish indeed!" grumbled
the disconsolate husband. "I d-i'rj say
it is an unpalatable, wishy-washy mess.
I would rather have a boiled frog than
the whole of it."
This was a common expression of
his, and had been anticipated by his
wife, who, as soon as the preference
was expressed, uncovere I a large dish
sit her husband's riht arm, and there
was a bull-frog of porteutious dimen
sions and pugnacious aspect stretched
out at full length! Zechariah sprang
frcra his chair i.ot a little frightened
at the unexpected apparition.
"My dear," said his wife, in a kind,
entreating manner, "I hope you will at
length b able to make a dinner."
Zechariah could not stand this. His
surly mood wa overcome and he burst
into a hearty laugh. He acknowledged
his wife was right, declared that she
would not again have reason to com
plain of him and kept his word. The

of Kansas was continually missing cat

was unable to discover what became of

went near a hike or an immense slough
for drink that the disappearances tuk

remained a mystery had it not been for
the overconfiidence and perhaps ex

day a watcher who chanced to be near
the lake saw a great commotion in the
water, as though some t rrible strug

It Listed only a short time, and then
the whole mystery was explained.
Out of the water came a moit aston

of a gigantic serpent writhing and
twisting in a horrible manner, its
mammoth j iws opening and shutting
with intense viciousnes. About where
the neck should lie two large horns

The "jig was up." The serpent had
been before content to attack small
game that it could easily swallow, but
this time it found its nuister in the big

struggled so fiercely that he had pokeiT
his horns through above and kicked

Another tale this imaginative bar

out west he one day fell into an old
abandoned mine. After going down
ever so many hundred feet he landed
upon a bed composed of millions of
black snakes. Finding himself unhurt,
he at once began devising means of
escape. A happy thought came to
him. He seized one of the squirming
reptiles and started it up the shaft; he
had a second one seize 1 he first by the
tail, and so on until the first was
seen disappearing at the opening.
