In Ewery Age and Every Country
Women Have Been Fond of Spices

BULL GAVE HIM THE IDEA
“All the perfumes of Araby will
not sweeten this little hand,” cried
Lady Macbeth. In her distress is
obtained a glimpse of the boudoir of
the wicked queen. What rows of j
cunning little vials the ladies in
waiting must have whiffed of as they ,
stood them up on some convenient
shelf! Some were jars of sachet, no
doubt, wrapped carefully in dried
grasses and fitted into a cedar box <
which had made its way to England
in the saddlebags of some Cmsader.
Sweet-smelling extracts, spices and
fragrant ointments have lieen popu-
lar gifts since the dim long ago.
The incense burned to the gods in
the temples was supposed to put
them in a mild and propitious mood
toward all mankind. Pleasant odors

Nearly 120 years ago, according to
legends that are still audible in the
admirable region known as West
Millbury, Asa Keuney, a busy and
worthy resident of that section of
the town, was roughly tossed over a
stone wall by an irate bull. *
As a result of that sudden and suc-
cessful flight through the delicious
air of West Millbury so long ago,
there was developed an industry tliat
was Millbury’s boast for many years.
In fact, it was Millbury’s pride for
the entire century that the industry
lasted and it was for quite a spell
Millbury’s monopoly. It was the
famous industry of manufacturing
brass balls for the tip ends of the
horns of bulls, cows and such.
The indention was that of Asa
lie invented the useful little nov-
elty just as soon as he w as able to be
out of bed and the first creature to
receive a brass decoration on the tips
of his wicked horns was the same
frisky bull that sent the inventor
flying.—Worcester (Mass.) Tele-

Seymour, Ind.—"Some time ago I
had a sick spell, something like indi-
gestion,” writes Mrs. Clara Peacock, of
Route 6, this place. "I would get very
ilck at the stomach, and spit or vomit,
especially in the mornings.
"Then I began the use of Thedford'a
Black-Draught, after I had tried other
medicines. The Black-Draught re-
lieved me more than anything that I
took, and I got all right
"I haven’t found anything better
than Black-Draught when suffering
from. trouble caused by constipation.
It is easy and sure. Can be taken in

The other evening five-year-old Jo-
seph was over at his grandfather’s
house for supper. While they were
eating grandfather sneezed. It
stopped his conversation a minute,
and then just as he started to re-
sume it Joseph spoke up: “What do
you say, grandpa?” he asked.
Grandfather looked mystified a
minute; then again began to talk.
Again Joseph persisted, “What do
you say, grandpa?”
More mystified looks. Then Joseph
informed him. “Grandpa,” he said
sweetly, “isn’t this a ’sense me table
