A Poisonous Mushroom.
We illustrate herewith one of the
deadliest of mushrooms growing wild
in our woods. This is the mushroom
that is usually mistaken for the edible
hind, as it is fair to look upon and has
no bad smell to serve as a warning.
It is white on top, but sometimes has
a slightly greenish tint—so slight
however, that it is not generally no-
ticed. Avoid all mushrooms grow-
ing from a sheath as this one shown
in the cut. Moreover, the sheath is
frequently covered by the moss grow-
ing about it or by the dead leaves.
Avoid also a cousin of this one
which looks like it hut is yellowish

on top and has patches scattered over
the crest. It is probably not very
common in the west, but grows
abundantly in the eastern part of this
country. It is a safe plan not to eat
any mushroom that is not fully
known. Trying to tell a mushroom by
written descriptions is dangerous, if
the mushroom is to be eaten.
Poisoning Potato Bugs.
As long as the potato crop is grow-
ing, the potato bug should be fought.
The most approved method now prac-
ticed consists in poisoning this insect
with Paris green. Some have feared
to use Paris green lest the foliage of
the plant be injured, but all experi-
ments go to show that the Paris green
not only does not injure the foliage,
but that it actually improves it. This
cannot be said of some other poisons,
such as arsenite of lime. Some farm-
ers do not try to poison the bugs in
late summer and early fall, for they
say the potatoes have attained their
growth and the foliage is therefore of
little consequence. But if the war on
the bugs kept -up till the end of. the
growing season, the crop next year
would be greatly reduced. While Paris
green is being put on the potato
plants, other plants used by the po-
tato beetles for food should not be
Overlooked. Potato beetles feed on to-
mato plants and on quite a variety of
weeds. It is not desirable to spray
the tomato plants with Paris green
during the time of fruiting, but the
weeds at least on which the beetles
appear can be treated to a spraying
with Paris green without danger. It
must not be forgotten that the size of
the brood next year will depend very
much on how many are permitted to
go into winter in good health.
Thought and Disease
| Thousands of people actually think
I themselves to death every year by al-
j lowing their minds to dwell on mor-
bid subjects, says Suggestions.
The idea that one has some incip-
ient disease in one's system, the
thought of financial ruin, that one Is
getting on in life without improved
prospects any of these or a thousand
similar thoughts may carry a healthy
man to a premature grave. A melan-
choly thought that fixes itself upon
one s mind needs as much doctoring
as physical disease. It needs to be
eradicated from the mind or it will
have just the same result as a neg-
lected disease would have.
Every melancholy thought, every
morbid notion and every nagging
worry should be resisted to the ut-
most, and the patient should be pro-
tected by cheerful thoughts, of which
there is a bountiful store in every
one s possession. Bright companions
are cheaper than drugs and plasters.
The morbid condition of mind pro-
duces a morbid condition of body,
and if the disease does not happen to
be in the system it receives every en-
couragement to develop. We need
more mental therapy.
The Reason V/hy.
Drummond, Wis., Aug. 21st (Spe-
;ial)—Whole families in Bayfield
County are singing the praises of
Dodd's Kidney Pills and the reason
why is given in experiences such as
that of Mr. T. T. Wold, a well-known
"I had such pains in my back that I
did not know what to do," says Mr.
Wold, "and as I came across an adver-
tisement of Dodd's Kidney Pills, I
sent for a box. That one box reliev-
ed me of all my pains. My wife also
used them and found them just what I
she needed. 1 recommend Dodd's Kid-
ney Pills as a sure cure for Back-
ache and other Kidney Troubles."
Backache is one of the earliest
symptoms of Kidney Disease. Dodd's
Kidney Pills cure it promptly and per-
manently and prevent it developing

Another cure by Cuticura is told of
by Mrs. Caroline Cable, of Waupaca,
Wis., in the following grateful let-
ter: "My husband suffered agony
salt rheum on his hands, and I had
to keep them bandaged all the time.
We tried everything we could get, but
nothing helped him until he used Cuti-
cirt-a. One set of Cuticura Soap, Oint-
ment^ and Pills cured him entirely,
and his hands have been as smooth
as possible ever since. I do hope this
letter will be the means of helping

Day's Work on the Farm.
There is little reason why t,
day's work on the farm should
not be about, the same as in any
pther place. The farm day has be-
come a joke with some people, who
claim to have been victims of it when
they were young. On some farms
only a fair day's work is done, and
that Is as it should be. On other farms
the day's work is from four o'clock in
the morning in summer till eight
o'clock at night. That makes sixteen
hours' work. Hired men frequently
revolt against that kind of a day and
they are justified in doing so. The
farmer's wile, however, does not have
a chance to revolt; she is too busy.
For her sake, if for no other reason,
the farm day should not be any longer
than it must be, which is much short
of sixteen hours. Where that is the
duration, management of the work is
in bad hands.
There is one remedy, and only one
I have ever found, to cure without
fail such troubles in my family as
Eczema, Ringworm, and all others of
an itching character. That remedy is
Hunt's Cure. We always use it and
it never fails.
