Knees Became Stifi
Five Year* of Severe Rheumatism
The cure of Henry J. Goldstein, 14
Barton Street, Boston, Mass., is another
victory for Hood’s Sarsaparilla. This great
medicine has succeeded in many cases
where others have utterly failed. Mr.
Goldstein says: “i suffered from rheuma-
• tism five years, it kept me from business
t and caused excruciating pain. My knees
would 1 ecome as stiff as steel. I tried
* many medicines without relief, then took
/ Hood’s Sarsaparilla, soon felt much better,
and now consider myself entirely cured.
I recommend Hood’s.”

chocolated tablets called Sarsatabs.

METHOD OF KEEPING YOUNG
Remarkably Sound Advice for the
Woman Who Has Some Years
of Life to Her Credit.
The way to ward off old age Is not
to fear It, not to allow one’s self to
be oppressed by the dread of advanc-
ing years. Use only legitimate pre-
ventives and avoid trying experiments
with preparations not Indorsed by
physicians. Do not wear toilettes in-
tended for young girls, they only add
years to the appearance. Keep up
your interest in the young, but do not
envy them. Retire with dignity from
the struggle, do not pose as your
daughter’s rival. Above all, surround
your life with sweet, true affections
which prevent the heart from growing
bitter. Do not lose interest in the
growing events of the day; do not fall
behind the times and do not harp on
other and better days. To those who
come to you for advice be always kind
and sympathetic. As you advance in
years preserve carefully your personal
appearance, for once lost it may not
be regained, save by strenuous effort.
Your costumes should be simple and
unpretentious, yet graceful. These
rules, carefully and sensibly followed,
will keep you young and attractive.—
“I never see you at church, Mrs.
“No. I’m afraid the services would
be trying on Fido’s nerves, and when
I leave him at home the poor dear
gets positively frantic.
"I see where a poor fellow drown-
ed. I wonder how that happened.”
“Perhaps he sank.”

recently, Bhowed little variety, the
vogue for the picturesque is strongly
The new long coats, for example,
are made with rather full fronts,
gracefully draped around the figure
and held in place with knots of velvet
or satin ribbon.
Linings for the long coats are of
satin veiled with chiffon, or of richly
brocaded silks, often having threads
of gold or silver running through the
Small heads and tails of fur are be-
ing used as moMfs, under which the
garment fastens. Wide flchulike stoles
are finding favor In the eyes of fash
Three reasons why they are so pop-
ular are warmth, becomingness and
the fact that they can be made of vel-
vet and fur or satin edged with fur.
The latter are mq.de quite warm by
an Interlining of lamb's wool.
These long, scarflike stoles are ex
tremely supple and can be draped
about the shoulders with exquisite
grace. Often two furs are combined
in the making of these stoles. Others
are of velvet bordered with wide bands
of fur. They are always lined with
delicate satin, chiffon or brocade.
Ermine will be very much worn by
those who can afford such luxuries. It
will be made up both with and with-
out the small black tails. Short scarfs
and shoulder wraps of ermine are
popular and It will also be used as
trimming for other furs.
The new fitchew fur Is greatly In
demand. It resembles the American
skunk, but is of finer and softer tex-
ture, darker and richer In coloring.
Moleskin is coming to the front
again and seal is always a good
choice. Muffs of fur are made larger
than ever, perfectly flat like a pillow,
or with a curved end made to throw
over the bands. This is to he a “fur
season.” If you have any old furs
packed away in camphor, bring them
out, have them remodeled and glory
In their soft warmth, knowing the
while that you are following the

"Not always," said she, calmly.

“Nothing except that you were per-
fectly right when you admitted It,”
she replied.—Harper's Weekly.
Truxton Hare, the football veteran,
deprecated, at a dinner at the Mark-
ham club in Philadelphia, that type
of football player who always falls
In his examinations.

even the fathers and mothers of such
men are proud of them.

Says the Earth 1*8 Flat.
It is something of a reproach upon
cultured Boston that a man living
! next door to it, Charles W. Morse of
Brookline, believes that the world is
flat as a pancake. Moreover he backs
up his conviction with the offer to
give a thousand dollars to the man
, who can prove the world is round
It is not surprising that there are men
in this day and generation who be-
lieve in the flat theory, but it Is re-
markable that one of them should
have been able to make a fortune.

Congressman Murray of Massachu-
setts In the closing days of the last
session of congress. In August, made
preparations to go to Wyoming on a
camping and hunting trip. He was
enthusiastic about It and took shoot-
ing lessons at a rifle gallery. The day
his party was to leave for the west
he received a telegram at the capltol
from his law partner In Boston. It
“Come to Boston at once; important
business; don’t delay.”
Sadly Mr. Murray abandoned his
trip, surrendered his sleeping-car res-
ervations and hurried to Boston. Ar-
riving there he took a taxicab for the
office. He dashed in, and there sat
his partner. The partner said:

A dyspepsia veteran who writes
from one of England’s charming rural
homes to tell how she won victory In
her 20 years’ fight, naturally exults In
her triumph over the tea and coffee
"I feel it a duty to tell you,” she
says, "how much good Postum has
done me. 1 am grateful, but also de-
sire to let others who may he suffering
as I did, know of the delightful meth-
od by which I was relieved.

dyspepsia, and the giddiness that usu-
ally accompanies that painful ailment,
and which frequently prostrated me.

Impaired digestion, so I used tea, ex-
clusively, till about a year ago, when
I found In a package of Grape-Nuts the
little book, ’The Road to Wellville.’
“After a careful reading of the book-
let 1 was curious to try Postum and
sent for a package. I enjoyed It from
the first, and at once gave up tea In
“I began to feel better very soon.
My giddiness left me after the first
few days’ use of Postum, and my stom-
ach became stronger so rapidly that It
was not long till I was able (as I still
am) to take milk and many other ar-
ticles of food of which I was formerly
compelled to deny myself. I have
proved the truth of your statement
that Postum ‘makes good, red blood.’
“I have become very enthusiastic over
the merits of my new table beverage,
and during the past few months, have
conducted a Postum propaganda among
my neighbors which has brought bene-
fit to many, and I shall continue to tell
my friends of the ‘better way’ in which
I rejoice.” Name given by Postum

It is wiser to avoid any discussion of

on a tray looking like one large cake
The children were delighted when

SHOULD BRING GOOD FORTUNE
Sandals Up to Date.
The revival of classic dancing and
Its attendant styles In costume is re
sponsible for the appearance of a mod-
ern sandal Intended for everyday
wear. It halls from Paris, whence
come most of the bizarre fashions. It
is an original boot, which at a little
distance has almost the effect of a
neatly laced sandal. It Is carried out
in gray suede and crossed at intervals
with finely stitched straps of thin kid,
giving the effect of the Dlrectotra
stripes used In dresses. The boot Is
not divided Into uppers and toe-caps,
but Is made without seams, so that
the lines of the stripes are uninter
rupted from beginning to end.
a piece of stiff cardboard Is cut out
in the required shape, and this Is
smoothly covered with light gray silk,
on which the seven “nails" have been
worked in silk of a darker shade of
color, and It Is then edged all round
with silk cord. At the top, in the cen-
ter, a small brass ring Is sewn, by
which the holder may be suspended
from a nail in the wall, and beneath
this a large dress-hook Is attached,
upon which the watch may be hung.
There are, of course, many other
pretty combinations of color In which
this little holder might be carried out,
and when made for use at home, In se-
lecting the colors of the materials, the
color of the wall paper upon which It
is to hang should be taken Into consid-
eration, In order that they may match

Advocates Right Kind of Pride.
Miss Muriel Becheler, editor of the
Wellesley college paper, advises the
college to be a "sport.” Pride has
been denounced so often, she says,
that It Is hard to realize that there Is
the right kind of pride—the kind that
bolsters up a limp back and helps
one to smile at the little bothers to
which It Is so easy to give way. When
girls first began to learn how to be
“sports,” she says, they felt that they
were cribbing, this glory having been
left so long to the masculine sex.
Without wishing to insinuate any-
thing it may be said that a good many
bashful men get married.—Atchison
Women-"Who-Buffer from womanly ailments, often give
way to despair, After trying different medicines in vain,
they tose heart and hope.
No friend in need could be more welcome to a sick,
delicate woman, than a remedy which will relieve her pains and
distress, build up her strength, and restore her failing health.
Mrs. Bessie York, of Huntington, W. Va., says: i
was sick for two years, and tried all the medicines and
doctors 1 could hear of, that I thought might cure me.
They all failed to relieve me. I was so bad, that every
month 1 thought 1 would die. Finally, I decided to

Cardui is composed of purely vegetable ingredients,
which act on the cause of the trouble, and thus bring re-

better try Cardui, for it has helped thousands of weak,
sick women, during the past 50 years, and should surely
do the same for you.
