The popular use of a spring medicine is founded on experience.

-Ill Pint the Blood
from the gross effects of the fatty foods of winter, there is no medicine
equal to Dr. Ayer’s Sarsaparilla. It not only cleanses the blood, but re-
vitalizes it. It puts a spring into the step and a sparkle into the eye that
betoken health. It restores the lost appetite, induces refreshing sleep,-and
-reduces the liability to disease by neutralizing the conditions essential to
ie development of disease germs.
Always Ask for Ayer’s.

One remarkable instance ties
just oome to light. Shortly be-
fore the adjournment of the Sen-
ate last Saturday afternoon.
Vioe President Hobart called
Senator Chandler to the ohair
and retired to hia private room,
where he was joined by appoint-
ment by three or four Senators
who are high in the oounoila of
the Republican party and who
are oloae to the administration.
This group then summoned Sen-
ator Foraker to join it. There
an ominous gravity in the
situation, depioted on the faoee
of the entire party, for tha truth
ia, the Hanna situation has oome
to a ahow-down, and the first
mentioned group of gentlemen
had met to make a final appeal
lo Senator Foraker in behalf of
the junior 8enator from Ohio.
When Senator Foraker joined
the coterie Vioe President Hobart
opened the conversation, or
negotiation, as it may be termed,
by aaying to Senator Foraker in
a frank but determined manner:
Senator Foraker, Mr. Hanna
must be returned to the Senate.
It ia necessary for ths unity and
good of the Republican party,
and for the aseuranoe of tha
Senator’* great usefulness to it
in the future, aa well aa in
recognition of hia aervloes to the
party in the past, that he be re-
elected to suoosed himself. It
has been frequently stated and

position to Senator Hanna oomee

A Beautiful Tradition.
There is a tradition with Free
Masons that the site upon whioh
the Temple of Solomon was built
was owned in oommon by two
brothers; onr of whom had a
family, the other none. On the
night after harvest the elder
brother said to his wife: "My
youngest brother is unable to
bear the heat and burden of the
day. 1 will arise, take some of
my shooks and plaos them with-
out hit knowledge among his
shooks.” Ths younger brother
being aotuated by similar kind
motives, said within himself:
’My brother has a family and I
have none. I will oontrlbuie to
their support. 1 will take of my
shook* and olaoe them with hia
without hia knowledge.' ’ Orest
was the astonishment of both
when, on the following morning,
they found their ahooks undi-
This happened several nights
in auooaasion, when eaoh re-
solved to keep watoh to solve the
mystery. They accordingly did
so and on ths following night tbs
brothers met half way between
their respeotlvs shooks with their
arms full of golden grain.
Upon ground hallowed by auoh
associations was ths Temple of
Solomon ereoted—that temple
ao spaoious, so magaifioent, ths
admiration and'ths wonder of
the world. It is only upon
ground hallowed bv love that
any enduring structure oan be
built. On no ether basis can

We know of several of th«

and have often advised our____
ora not to invest large sums In

I will now give you oomplete
directions for preserving eggs
by the Aigrette Method.
Take 36 gallons of water, put
in it 18 pounds unslaoked whits
lime, and 6 pounds salt, stir it
several times for a day, then
1st settle and draw off all that is
dear; then take 4 ounoes Per
Algretta, 8 ounoes Baking Soda,
8 ounces Cream Tartar, 8 ounoes
Salt Pater, and 8 ounoes Borax;
diaolve them in two gallons boil-
ing water, and put into your
olean lime water; this will cover
300 doaen eggs. It oosts about
one oent a dozen to preserve
them. The Per Algretta keeps
the egga fresh and fresh looking;
some druggists do not have it in
poultry business and the prog-
resaive newspapers yf ths oonn-
try have done muoh to puah the
good work along. When a good
inoubator oan be made ao ohaap-
ly why should not every farmer,
and many in villages and olties
have inoubators? Send and get
directions, make an inoubator,
and raise more ohlokens; they
are a good thing, ohlokens are,
not only tor pre&ohers, but for
oommon every day people.
