Successful Life Work,
"He has achieved success who has
lived well, laughed often, and loved
much; who has gained tho respect of
Intelligent men and the love of little
children; who has filled his niche
and accomplished his task; who left
the world better than he found It,
whether by an Improved poppy, n
perfect poem, or a rescued soul; who
has never lacked appreciation of
earth's beauty or failed to express It;
who has always looked for the best
In others, and given the best he had;
whose life was an Inspiration; whose

Ing their babes.
The experience of a Kansas City
nether Is a case in point:
"I was a great coffee drinker from a
child, and thought I could not do with-
out It Rut I found at last it was do-
ing me harm. For years I had been
troubled with dizziness, spots before
my eyes and pain In my heart, to
which was added, two years later, a
chronic sour stomach.
"The baby was born 7 months ago,
ar.d almost from the beginning. It, too.
suffered from sour stomach. She was
taking It from me!
' In my distress I consulted a friend
of more experience and she told me
to quit coffee, that coffee did not
make good milk I have since ascer-
tained that It really dries up the milk.
"So, I quit coffee and tried tea and
at last cocoa. But they did cot agree
with me. Then I turned to Postum
with the harplest results. It proved
to be the very thing 1 needed. It cot
only agreed perfectly with baby and

How to Disinfect.
The careless manner In which many
people fumigate their homes after a
siege of Infectious disease Is to say
the least criminal.
As soon as the physician gives per-
mission to move the patient, he should
be given a hot bath and a sponging all
over with a weak solution of bichlo-
ride and move him Into tho room pre-
pared for him.
The sick room Itself should be thor-
oughly disinfected and everything that
haa been used that It is necessary to
keep and Is washable should be
soaked for several hour* In a solu-
tion of carbolic acid twenty parts to
a hundred of water. It Is almost Im-
possible to disinfect a mattress well
at home and it should either be
burned or sent to an establishment
where such things are sterilized.
There are several methods of fumi-
gation; one Is the burning of sulphur,
and follow that by wiping off every-
thing lu the room with a solution of
bichloride, one part to five hundred
of water. The walls may be wiped
with a broom bag dampened with the
The use of formaldehyde is pre-
ferred by many, stopping up every
crack and keyhole and letting the vol-
atile substance penetrate every part
of the room.
All bedding should be spread out
OTer chairs so that the gas will have
easy access to It Leave the room
closed for II hour*, then air thor-
oughly. Formalin lamps which pro-
duce the gis may be purchased. This
Is one of the easiest methods and one
<hat is considered most satisfactory.
Hooks ant toys are something Impossi-
ble to fumigate or disinfect, and It Is
much better to burn them than to run
any risks of contagion.
Disease germs live a long time in
hiding, and one cannot use too much
care and precaution.
The germs of consumption are
killed by a few minutes exposure to
the direct sunlight, as are many other
germs, so let us use the cheap and
easily available germicide and keep
our homes tcal'hiul and sweet.

We usually write our own ads , hut
will let a user of "Rough on Rata" for
extermination of Prairie Dogs write this
one. Mr. II. B. Mosely, a ranchman, un-
der data of Feb. 4th, 1911, writes aa fol-
lowa from Hill Top, Douglas Co., Col-
orado: He suys: "I have read your ad-
vertisement of 'Rough on Rats; it noS
only lends good but it is good. I havu
been troubled twenty years with Prairie
Doga; have used many so-called exter-
minators to no purpose. Not long sines
I used a poisoned wheat, prepared by an
expert who had made it a study for years,
but it did no good for me; they ate it, but
chirped for mora. The 'Dogs' were eating
up a field of corn for me; I was at my
wit's end what to do; I could only get
the small 15c. size here of 'Rough on
Rats.' I mixed it with corn and applied;
many of them chirped no more; I then
mixed it with corn meal and placed it
on days not windy, near their holes.
'Rough on Rats' ia by far the best thing
I have tried, but I fancy I am using it
unnecessarily strong, or you may s ggest
a better way than Iknow to mix or use it.
I wish our druggists would keep the larg-
est (75c.) size; could you send me the 75c.
size? It clears them out in great shape;
vou should make it better known to

For Prairie Dogs I would advise soaking
coarse cracked corn in a mixture of, say
one 25c. box of "Rough on Rats" lo five
gallons of water; let it stand a week,
shaking frequently; you can use the sarrv?
mixture over and over again for crackeii
