' No dessert is more delicious, wholesome
and appetizing than a well-made dumpling,
filled with the fruit of the seascn. By the
use of the Royal Baking Powder the crust is
always rendered light, flaky, tender and di
gestible. Dumplings made with it, baked or
boiled, will be dainty and wholesome, and may
be eaten steaming hot with perfect impunity.

"WHAT MEDICINES ARE MOST
CALLED FOB 1
asked the reporter of an old druggist.
"Dr. Pierce's preparations," he replied.
"They are sold under a positive guar
antee that they will, in every case, give
satisfaction, or the money is promptly re
funded. His 'Favorite Prescription, for all
those chronic weaknesses, nervous and other
derangements peculiar to women, is used with
unfailing success. It cures weak back, bearing-down
sensations, irregularities and weak
nesses common to the sox, and being the
most perfeet of touic medicines builds up
and strengthens the entire system. The de
mand for it is constant, and I am conversant
with scores of cases cured by it."
Returning after a few moments' absence,
the venerable wielder of the pestle remarked,
"the number of sarsaparillas and other, so
called, ' blood medicines ' is legion ; but Dr. '
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery outsells
them all and it is the only blood-puritler out
of the many which I am obliged to keep upon
my shelves, that is guaranteed to benefit or
cure in all cases for which it is recommended,
or money paid for it is refunded."
" In the line of Pills," remarked the old gen
tl ennui, "the little Sugar-coated 'Pellets'
put up by Dr. Pierce lead all others, both in
amount of sales and the general satisfaction
they give my customers."

If They Were Men.
WHAT SOME FAMOUS WOMEN WOULD AND

FROM THE DUTCHESS.
If I were a man:
I should be either a doctor or a sol
lier. The courage that belongs to
1 them. makes these two the grandest
! professions in the world. True, they
contradict each other; one kills, and
the other cures, yet both are noble.
I should not be in haste to marry.
It is the one step in life that marks or
mars, and to escape it but two gates are
open: Death and Disgrace.
I should consider thirty a go.Kl age
for matrimony. Before that a man is
a mere boy ; after that, for the next
twenty wars, he is tit his best, if there

Poor Richard's Sayings.
Benjamin Franklin published an
manac in 1757 from which we quote
The taxes are indeed very heavy, and
if those hud on by the government
were the only ones we had to pay we
might more easily discharge them; but
we have many others, and much more
grievous to some of us.
We are tsiied f trice as much bv our
idleness, three times as much by our
pride, and four times as much by our
folly; and from these taxes the com
missioners cannot deliver us.
It would be thought a hard govern
ment thstt should tax its people one-
tenth part of their time to be employed j
in its service, but idleness taxes many
of us much more, if we reckon all that
is spent in absolute sloth, .or doing
nothing; with that which is spent in
idle employments or amusements that
amount to nothing. Sloth, by bring
ing on disease, absolutely shortens life.
Sloth, like rust, consumes faster than
labor wears. Dost thou love lif?
Then do not squander time, for that's
the stuff life is made of.
Sloth makes all things difficult, but
industry all things easy.
Laziness travels so slowly that pov
erty soon overtakes him.
What signifies wishing and hoping
for better time? We make times bet
ter if we bestir ourselves.

said against them, have a refining in

of the stable and help tc check the
growing inclination to irreverence in
ordinary conversation that even decent

my servants. One should never de

I should regard courage as tha higiv

sider prowess in mere field sports as
constituting that great gift. To con
quer and slay the lower animal should
not be taken as the end and aim of
life. There must be something beyond
it. To excel in moral courage, to be
able to control one's self, to kill the
evil in one's inner nature, to be able
to defy society for a principle, is surely
a greater triumph than to stand with

Mothers and Daughters.
It is a curious fact that mothers of
ability frequently have helpless daugh

daughters who can turn their hands to
The reason, however, is very simp
The capable mo hers, feeiing a certain
pride in their capability, are loth to
allow th.-ir daughters to help them.
They desire them to feel that mother
makes (he bst cake, does the nicest
needlework, orders the house better
th iin any one else; that her dealings
with tradesmen are to the advantage
of the family; that she cannot be cheat
ed in the quality of goods, that she can
entertain guests more charmingly than
her daughters can.
In this natural delight in being es
teemed by her girls, she forgets that
time flies, that thev will spon become
women, that she must grow old. She
does not teach them to tread in her
foot steps, but represses any of them
who are inclined to do so. She is very
apt to say: "You cannot do it as it
should be done, my dear," and so the
the girl becomes timid. She depends
on her mother, often even for the ar
rangement of her hair, the purchase of
j her articles of finery. She comes to her
' mother to ask what she shall say when
j she writes a, letter, she sils blushing in
the background while mamma talks to
her friends; she remains a child in
j feeling long after girls who are brought

MRS. MOULTON WOULD BE HAPPY.
I domt exactly know what 1 would
do if I were a man, but 1 do know
what I would be, and that is, happy.
From my point of view, a man is a
fortunate creature, indeed. He has no
dressmaker to tyrannize over hi in, or
no disappointment to meet at the last
moment, He can simply go to his
tailor, give his order, he measured, and
he is done with it. He need not go
back again, and turn himself in an
aching lav-figure for an hour at a timo
to have her draperies arranged:

As it is, I desire a man's opportuni

If I were a man, I would try to under

How to Keep Sweet Potatoes.
Sweet potatoes are sensitive to any
change in the atmosphere, moisture
and handling. They will lie on a floor
that is enclosed and roofed a long time
without injury, provided they are put
there without bruising, and if the pile
is not deep, and if the temperature
does not get near the freezing point.
They must not lie long in the sun, they
must not lie long in the wet, they must
not lie long in the cold. Never leave
out over night what you harvested
duriny: the day. Pick those which are
to be preserved over winter as carefully
as apples are picked, and put them in
a drv rnol nlace that is well secured
against rain and frost. Dry ground
makes a good floor, provided it is pro
tected'from rain or cold on the outside.
The pile must not be deep a foot in
depth is enough during tbe warm
weather of the fall months; it might be
made deeper later in December, when
the potatoes are picked over anJ all
damaged ones thrown away. For
keeping them through the winter store
boxes and old barrels will do for small
quantities, but they must be absolutely
frost-proof. They should have a little
