" It was three years ago last spring
I hat my health failed me," says Mrs
Arthur Conklni, of No. 5 Coidwater
-trt '-t, Battle Creek, Mich. "I suffered
from leucorrhoea and other troubles
that, I presume, were cansed by the
weakness it jtriKluced. I had sinking
s|ielK, nervous heailaches, was weak
and exhausted all the time and looked
like n walking skeleton.
" My back aud limbs would ache nl-
raost continually and there were days
when I was absolutely helpless from
sick headache. I tried one doctor after
another l>ut cannot say that they helped
me at all. My liver was sluggish and
1 was troubled some with constipation
"One day a physician who has now
retired from practice met my husband
mi the street and inquired about my
health. He advised my husband to get
some of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for me,
said they were a good medicine, bettei
for my trouble than he could put up. I
tried them, improved steadily and soon
was entirely cured. As soon as the
lencorrhoea was cured the headaches
and other pains stopped, l am entirely

An Incident of Recent History
It has just transpired that Jenghiz
Khan, a direct descendant of that
world conqueror who, in the early
years of tae thirteenth century,
brought all Asia under the dominion
of the Mongols, is an officer In the
army of the czar of all the Russians.
Wherefore the following shred of im-
perial conversation may be believed
"Give mo a man who can win vic-
tories," sighed his imperial highness.
And as If from a trained chorus the
unanimous reply came back from tho
assembled courteirs:" Jenghiz Khan. 1

subject of "swelled heads." and formei

the worst sort of a swelled head, and
thought the town could not exist with

sincerely believed that no one dis-
charged the duties of those offices as
• he had. He had also helped the town
materially by giving it money for
various purposes. But he was not
■ content with the thanks of the towns-
people for his services. He believed
that there should be some distinct rec-
ognition of his wonh to the commun-
ity. So one day at a town meeting he
asked permission to be burled in the
. town plot in the center of which the
town hall Btood.
"The Town Councillors laughed and
the petition was tabied. The follow-
ing year he petitioned for the same
thing, and again it was tabled. The
ihird year the same thing occurred.
"The fourth year the chairman of
the Petition Committee arose and
said: 'I have here a petition from the
Hon. Mr. B , asking that he may
be burled in the town plot. I move,
gentlemen, that we grant this petition
provided the petitioner is burled there
next week.' The motion went through
amid shouts of laughter and the peti-
tion was never again presented."—

"Here's a good story," said the wife,
looking tip from her paper. "Here's a
j story of a man who bragged that he
could make as good a hat as anybody
could want by selecting the materials
and then combining them as they are
in the latest models. And when he
had done so, he found that the raw
materials cost him $2 more than the
finished hat would have cost."
"I don't believe it," asserted the hus-
band. "Now, here's another story in
my paper. It's about a man who took
the household management out of his
wife's hands, and at tho end of a
month, after doing all the marketing
and arranging the meals himself, he
had lowered the expenses of the house
40 per cent."
"I don't believe it." declared the
wife. "You can't believe a thing you
read about the way men can manage
better than women."

The question of stable floors is an
ill-important one and has been much
liscussed of late. -The ideal stable
aoor should be durable, comparatively
?heap. impervious to water, warm and
smooth enough to be readily cleaned,
yet not so smooth that animals will
easily slip on it. The floor that comes
dearest filling all of the requirements
for a dairy barn is cement, and the
chief reason for this is because it is
sanitary and can be so easily cleaned.
Many of the best barns in the dairy
portion of Illinois are now being con-
structed with cement floors. A cement
floor is much more easily kept clean
if it is troweled smooth, but if this
is done there is great danger of the
cows injuring themselves by slipping.
For this reason the portion of the floor
on which the cows walk should always
be left rough under the float. Where
this la done, there is practically no dif-
ficulty from the cows slipping. The
chief objection to a cement floor is,
that as cement is a good conductor of
heat, it is cold for the cows to lie on
in the winter, in a cold climate. No
one denies that this is a serious objec-
tion, but cows should always be
bedded heavily, enough to absorb all
of the liquid manure that it may be re-
tu ned to the land. If cows are heav-
ily bedded much of this objection to a
cement fleor is obviated, but even
when bedded heavily and paying close
attention to keeping the bedding even-
ly distributed under the cows, they are
very apt to occasionally get all of the
bedding pushed aside with their hind
feet so that a small portion of tlie
floor is entirely bare, and lie down
with their udders immediately on this
bare floor, which is certainly objection-
able with high-class cows. After five
years experience in keeping our uni-
versity herd on a cement floor, I am
convinced that the portion of the ce-
ment floor on which the cows stand
should be covered with wood laid in
asphalt. This makes the floor almost
as sanitary as an entire cement floor
and obviates entirely the difficulty of
having the cows stand directly upon
Cement makes excellent watering
troughs and feeding floors, and when
prpperly constructed will last almost
indefinitely.—Wilbur J. Fraser, Uui
versity of Illinois.
A Year's Record.
A great deal has been said about the
testing of cows by weighing their milk
and afterwards testing it. Sometimes
In buying a cow a man will milk her,
test the milk and conclude that lfc
knows something about her. He does
know something, but that something
| is very limited in amount. The weak-
: nesses of some of the tests that have
been made recently is that they are
, limited in duration. Often a month
will not show the real value of a farm
animal; nothing short of a year's test
under normal conditions will show the
| real value of a cow. This has beea
fully demonstrated at our experiment
stations where dairy testing has been
carried on. Cows that have made won-
derful records for the first month have
sometimes at the last of the year
fallen far behind those that made a
poor showing during the first month.
The farmer in determining the value
of his own cows will have to make up
his mind to continue the work for two
or three years. There are promineni
I dairymen who have done this. They
have weighed and tested their milk
for enough years to give them exact
information on the value of their cows.
All unprofitable ones are disposed of,
and after some years of experiments
j of this kind the men found that they
I could abandon the weighing and test-
ing of milk, so far as their old cows
were concerned. We advise a farmer
aot to be too sure about the value of
j i cow from his first testing. There
ire some farmers, who, after a week,
have jumped at conclusions and have
disposed of cows that were doubtless
Licenses for Creameries.
We long have been confronted with
the difficulty of getting improvements
in the management of some of our
creameries. The matter of licensing
creameries has been under discussion
for a long time, and the plan has the
approval of many of our n ost ad-
vanced thinkers. When th3 cream-
eries are licensed there Is a fund from
; which to pay inspectors to see that
I the law is complied with. We find that
most people that have thought along
' this line are in favor of these licenses,
and even the best creamery meu favor
i them for obvious reasons. It will drive
out of existence the poorest creamer-
! ies. This would be a help to the
! creameries that are rightly conducted.
Butter Is an article of diet that is
largely used and should be healthful.
It Is for the public good that all other
be weeded out. When a creamery Is
licensed it must show that It complies
with certain rules as to cleanliness,
and the burden of proving that It is
a clean creamery is put upon the men
i that own it. They cannot merely act
upon the defensive. Licensing cream-
} eries will also result In a higher ciasa
i of buttermakers being employed.

When the maker of a medicine, sold

his patients fully into his confidence by
frankly and fearlessly publishing broad-
cast as well as on Its bottle wrappers,
a full list of all its ingredients in plain

A glance at the published ingredients
on each bottle wrapper, will show that it
is made wholly from native, American,
medicinal roots, that it contains no poi-
sonous or habiworming drugs, no nar-
cotics and no alcohol—pure, triple-refined
glycerine, of proper strength being used
instead of the commonly employed alco-
hol, both for extracting and preserving
the active medicinal properties found In
the roots of the American forest plants
employed. It is the only medicine for
women's pecular diseases, sold by drug-
gists, that does not contain a large per-
centage of alcohol, which is in the long
run so harmful to woman's delicate, nerv-
ous system. Now, glycerine is perfectly
harmless, and serves a valuable purpose
by possessing intrinsic value all its own,
and besides it enhances the curative
effect of the other Ingredients entering
into the "Favorite Prescription."
Some of the ablest medical writers and
teachers endorse these views and praise
all the several ingredients of which "Fa-
vorite Prescription" is com posed — rec-
ommending them for the cure of the
very same diseases for which this world-
famed medicine is advised. No other
medicine for women has any such pro-
