The First Sign
Of falling health, whether in the form of
Night Sweats and Nervousness, or in a
aonse of General Weariness and Loss ol
Appotite, should suggest the use of
Ayer's Sarsaparilla. This preparation
is most effective for giving tone and
strength to the enfeebled system, pro
moting the digestion and assimilation of
.food, restoring the nervous forces to
their normal condition, and for purify
ing, enriching, and vitalising the blood.
Ton years ago my health began to fall.
I was troubled with a distressing Cough,
Night Sweats, Weakness, and Nervous
ness. I tried various remedies pre
scribed by different physicians, but
became so weak that I could not go np
stairs without stopping to rest. My
friends recommended mo to try Ayer's
Sursaparilla, which I did, and I am now
ns healthy and strong as ever. Mrs.
E. L. Williams, Alexandria, Minn.
I have used Ayer's Sarsaparilla, in my
family, for Scrofula, and know, if it fit
taken faithfully, that it will thoroughly
eradicate this terrible disease. I have
also prescribed it as a tonic, as well as an
alterative, and must say that I honestly
believe it to be the best blood medicine
evereoni pounded. W. F. Fowler, M. 1.

Dyspepsia Cured. . ,
It would be Impossible for me to de
scribe what I auuered from Indigestion
and Headache up to the time I bean
taking Ayer's Sarsaparilla. I was under
the care of various physicians, and tried
a great many kinds of medicines, but
never obtained more than temporary re
lief. After taking Ayer's Sarsaparilla
for short time, my headache disap
peared, and my stomach performed its
duties more perfectly. To-day my
health is completely restored. Mary
Uarley, Springfield, Mass.
- I have been greatly benefited by the
Jirompt use of Ayer's Sarsaparilla. It
ones and invigorates the system, regu
lates the action of the digestive and
cuts imitative organs, and vita tea the
Mood. It is, without doubt, the most
reliable blood purifier yet discovered.

Female Labor in Grrmany ami Here.
It appears from comparative statistics, just
complied on this subject, that in the Pots
dnuf District of Germany the employment f
female labor amounts to 35 per ceut., in the
Kingdom of Saxony it is 33, in Upper Swa
bia 31, and in the Breslau district a little
over 30 These figures do not differ greatly
from the American statistics, which gives 37
per ceut. for New Hampshire, 33 for Rhode
Island, 32 for Massachusetts and 31 for
Maryland. The states just cited, however,
include a smaller proportion of the total
population of the United States, and there is
uo other American State- with a percentage
of female labor of over 27. The agricultural
districts of Germany, as might be expected,
show a much large proportion than similar
districts in the United State. Particular in
dustries also show a higher percentage of
female labor in Germany than in the United
States. For example, the percentage in th
textile mill of the Black lorest district is
73, while in Reuss, a small principality south
of Leipsio, it actually rises as high as 90 per

, . ., Lake Superior' Icy Waters
1 ' " " St.' Louis' Globe-Democrat.
How cold the dark water of Lake Superior
is. , One evening when we .were steaming
across the lake I arked the mate wlmt was
done when a man fell overboard. ' He coolly
:"Why," I asked, t.Htoniidjed at his heart
lossless. ' "The water of Lake Superior is so cold
that a man ounuot live in it during the time
it takes to stop a rapidly moviug vessel and
lower a boat he repliod. Then he added :
"I have sailed on this lake for twenty
years. During that time I have known
one.man only who escaped death. He was
saved by scratch.' The others were appar
ently killed by the shock produced by fulling
iuto inch cold water."
He picked up an empty oaix, to which a
long string waaattaohed, and east it over
board. The can skipped from the crest of
one wave to another for an instant, then
dipped and filled. The hoary-headed mate
drew that full can np end handed it to me,
saying: "Take a drink of that, and then
say what yon think of yonr chances in swim
nuug in Lake Superior for ten or fifteen
minutes." I drank deeply, and it was as
thor.gh liquid ice flowed down my throat.
"It is alleged," the mute said, "that this
lake never gives np its dead; that to be
drowned in Lak Superior is to be drowned
for all time. I do uot know whether this ia
true or not, but I do know that I have never
sen a corpse floating ou the lake," I won
der if that is true? I doubted it, but I could
find no sailor who had ever seen a dead
body floating on the lake.
Dr. Plummer writing to the Oresouiun rel
ative to fruit growing as a mouey making
business in California, says:
"In regard to returns, uiv nephew, from
his prune tret realized 1081.35 in 1880,
and in 1887 sold CO. 151 pounds of prunes,
174 of plums, 47,854 pounds of apricots all
for 2 cent a pound delivered at a fruit dry
er two miles away by a level road. Then be
sold 11)00 pounds of cherries for 4 csuts and
some peaches besides what ho gave away
and reserved for his own use. . The total
ostluy for htbor in picking was $173.85.
Some orchards but six year old did not
probably pay. as well, as this one shows
that it has bad good care, and the return has
paid well for it, with the almost certainty of
largely increased returns in the immediate
future, . . ......
As an example of the reveune from orch
ards in full bearing, I learn that Mr. Henry
iiooEson, Sr., has an orchard of thirty acres
in the same district, the trees consisting of
peaches, apricots and egg plums, which re
quired the employing of fifty-seven men
throuch the picking season and yielded 400
tons of fruit, which bo sold for the princely
revenue of $14,000.
An idea of the productiveness of the
North Pacific soil may be gleaned from the
following: The Horticulturist published at
Tacema, says A. J. Burr, of Oiympia. W.
T., raised five barrels of cranberries on a
bed fifty ft square.
W. T. Wright of Milton, Or., sold this
season 12,000 pounds of grapes from one aud
one-half acres of land. One acre of straw
berries produced 3000 pounds; 1000 pounds
of blackberries grew on one-third of an aore.
Robert Locke of Uillhursf, W. T., raised
over COO bushels of potatoes to the acre.
A. W. Hidden, Vanoonver, W. T., has a
three-acre prune orchard that gave him a net
ineome of $1800 In ono season.
James Biles of Oiympia, W, T., has raised
the Royal Ann cherry thnt produced from
400 to 500 pounds to each tree, after they
were twelve years old, and peaches that pro
duced as high as eight bexes to a tree.
Setb Lewelling of Milwaukie, Or., hns 24
