AUNT HETTY ON UATR1II0NY.
She Tells lo Plain Words a Few of Life's
Now gills, said Aunt Hetty, put
down your embroidery and worst
ed work, do something sensible
and stop building aircastles, and
talking - of lovers , and honey
moons ; it makes me sick, it's per
fectly antimonial. Love is a farce
-matrimony is a humbug, hus
bands are domestic Napoleons,
Nexoes, Alexanders, sighing for
other hearts to conquer after thejv
are sure of yours The honey
moon is as short lived as a lucyfier
matoh ; after that you may wear
your wedding dress at the wash tub,
and your night cap to the meet
ing, and your husband wouldn't
know it. ,You may pick up your
own pocket handkerchief, help
yourself to a chair, and split your
gown across the back reaching
over the table to get a piece of
butter, while he is laying in his
breakfast as if it was thejlast meal
he should eat in the .world, when
he gets through he will aid your
digestion, (while you sipping your
first cup of coffeo,) by inquiring
what you'll have for dinner,
whether the cold lamb was all ate
yesterday ; if .the charcoal is all
out, and what you gave for the
last tea you bought. - Then
he gets up from the table,
lights his cigar with the evening's
paper that you have nothad a
chance to read ; gives two or three
whiffs of smoke, sure to give you
a headache for the afternoon, just
as his coat tail is vanishing
through the door, apologizes for
not doing "that errand" for you
yesterday thinks it doubtul if he
can today "so pressed with busi:
ness." : Hear of him at 11 o'clock,
taking ice cream with some ladies
at Vinton's while you are at home
now lining his coat sleeves. Chil
dren by the ear, oan't get out to
take the air, feel crazy as a fly
in a drum; husband come home
at night, nods a "how dy'e do,
Fan," boxes Charley's ears,
stands little Fanny in the corner
sits down in the warmest corner,
puts his feet up overthe grate,
shuttting out the fire, while the
baby's little pugoose. grows blue
with the cold, reads the newspaper
all to himself, solaces his inner
man with a cup ef tea and just as
you are labroing under the hallu
cinatin that he will ask you to
take a mouthful of fresh air with
nim, he puts on his dressing gown
and begins to reckon the family
expenses, alter which he lies down
on the sofa, and you keep time
with your needle, while he shores
till 9 o'clock.
Next morning ask him to leave
'a little money," he looks at you
as if to be sure that you are in
your right mind, draws a sigh long
enough to inflate a pair of bellows,
and asks you "what do - you want
with it, and if a half dollar won't
do." Gracious king 1 aB if those
little shoes, and petticoats could
be had for a half dollar ! Oh,
girls 1 set your affection on cats,
poodles, parrots or lap dogs -but
not matrimony. It's the
hardest way on earth of getting a
living you never vknow when
jrour work is done np. ' Think of
carrying eight or nine' children
through the measles, chicken pox,
rash, mumps, and scarlet fever,
someofem4wi.ee over; it makes
my headachew think of it. Oh,
" yon may scrimp, and save, and
twist and turn, and dig, and delve,
and economize, and die, and your
husband will marry again, and
take wjiat you, have saved to dress
his second wife with, and she'll
take your portrait for a fire-board ;
but what's the use of talking?
I'll warrant every one of you'll
try it, the first chance you get;
there's ft ' sort- of bewitchment
about it, somehowi ;

DOWN WITH TUBERCULOSIS."
Is The Battle Cry io The South. Against
This Breat Gahss of Death.
Louisville, Kentucky. "Down
with tuberculosis" is the new bat
tle cry- which is being sounded
through the cities of the South,"
asserts Director Iff. G. Routzahn
of Chicago, in charge of the
American Tuberculosis Exhibi
tion, which has a record-making
attendance of 84,000 in Louisville
"The South is united with the
North," continued Mr, Routzahn,
l"in this warfare against the great
est single cause of death since the
world began. Following the suc
cessful -exhibitions in Richmond
and Louisville arrangements have
been completed for continuing the
Southern tour to include Lexing
ton and the Kentucky Legislature
in session at Franjtfort."
"This traveling exhibit has al
ready been - shown under three
flags by the National Association
for the study and Prevention of
Tuberculosis. In the leading cit
ies of Canada. Mexico and the
States 600,000 people have visited
this exhibition, thousands of ad
dresses have been given, millions
of printed matter have been circu
lated and an enormous newspaper
circulation of the simple, funda
mental precautions in preserving
health have enabled a tremendous
number of people to learn how to
avoid needless disease and perma
"The southern campaign began
with a six month's t-stay at the
Jamestown Exposition. The first
local exhibit was held at Rich
hnond with a registered attend
ance, notwithstanding holiday
-distractions of 11,000 the week be
fore Christmas. Louisville and
Richmond have started the cam
paign south of the Ohio with 1
"The county health officers 0$
the entire state were represented
here at Louisville.' The" pupils of
the upper grades of the public
schools, and students in theologi
cal, law and other special institu
tions came -under leaderships of
their teachers. The local com
mercial organizations did great
things towards awakening general
interest. The health committee
of the-.state federation of women's
clubs held a conference and pre
pared to enlist women's organiza
tions throughout the state."
"Operating from Nashville we
hope to proclaim the glad tidings
of relief from the Great White
Plague to every city and town be
tween Memphis on the Mississippi
and Bristol way up in the moun
tains. In Tennessee three points
will be visited before starting for
the gulf cities. With Tennessee
and Kentucky hoMing unenviable
rank next to California's excessive
death rate from tuberculosis and
with other states of the South in
the next rank, - there is abundant
reason for a far reaching agitation
this winter." 1
At times when you don't feel
just right, when you have a . bad
stomach, take something right
away . that will assist digestion;
not something that 'will stimulate
for a time but -something that
will positlvelydo the;: very work
that the stomach . performs under
ordinary and normal conditions,
something that will make the food
digest. To do this you must take
a natural digestantlike Kodol for
Dyspepsia. Kodolls a scientific
preparation of vegetable .acids
with natural digestants and con
tains the sam juices found in a
healthy- stomaon. Each dose will
digest more than 8,000 grains of
good food. It is sure to afford
prompt relief ; it digests what you
eat and is pleasant to take. Sold
