by the women who are ailing and suffer

every such woman, help is guaranteed by
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription. For
, young girls just entering womanhood ;
women at the critical "change of life ;"
women approaching confinement ; nurs

"run-down" or overworked, it is a
medicine that builds up, strengthen?,
and regulates, no matter what the con

It's an invigorating, restorative tonic,
a soothing and bracing nervine, and the
only guaranteed remedy for "female

sensations, periodical pains,
ulceration, inflammation, and every
kindred ailment, if it ever fails to ben

V. A. McGuire, a well known citizen
of McKay, Ohio, is of the opinion that
"there is nothing as good as children
troubled with colds or croup as
'Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. He has
used it in his family for several years
with the best results and always kept a
bottle of it in the house. After having
la grippe he was himself troubled with
asevere cough. He used other remedies
without benefit and then concluded to
try the children's medicine and to his
delight it soon effected a permanent cure.

"This government is going to the
dogs," he remarked, with a sob that
could not have been other than genuine.
"Oh, I shouldn't say-that, Every na
tion has its periods of unrest." "Yes,
but this ain't any period. This is an
exclamation point." Washington Star.
Henry Wilson, the postmaster at
Welsh ton, Florida, says he cured a case
of diarrhoea of long standing in six hours
with one small bottle of Chamberlain's
Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy".
What a pleasant surprise that must have
been to the sufferer. Such cures are not
unusual with this remedy. In many
instances only one or two doses are re
quired to give permanent relief. It can
always de depended upon.' When re
duced with water it is pleasant to take.

ANTS AGAINST SNAKE.
Numbers Won in a Ionjt and Kxcitlnp
- "While camping' in Alabama during'
the late war," said Col. II. C. Crossman
of Dayton, C, 'according' to the St.
Louis Globe-Democrat, '"I witnessed an
attack of a band of black ants upon a
striped.snake. . : .
"One evening1, while I was trying- to
g-o to sleep, after a long day?s march, I
felt something move under my head. I
lifted one corner of the blanket and
found a snake between three and four
feet in length- I quickly bit it with a
small . stick, but the reptile . seemed
hardly stunned by the blow, so 1 picked
it up on the end of the stick and threw
it about fifteen feet away. The snake
landed on a large ant hill. Almost in
;tantly the" ants poured forth from
heir nest, which was underneath, and
egan a vigorous attack upon the in
ruder, who was soon covered by scores
f his assailants, biting' him fearfully.
Che battle raged with fury, the snake
vrithing1 about in torture.
"The contest at first seemed an un
:qual one, for the snake was rapidly
,hinning out his persecutors, but on
;he other hand the ants were numer
ous and . quick in their aggressive
movements. The snake with one blow
af his tail would kill or wound a long
line of ants, but the active little crea
tures were soon reinforced by fresh
troops and fought with a desperation
wonderful to behold. I was astonished
beyond measure to see the tactics of
the ants. When they saw their num
bers were being . lessened they dis
patched couriers for fresh relays of
soldiers, who appeared on the scene in
due time to replace the killed or wound
ed. "The moon after a time lit up the
scene, but as there appeared no near
termination of the struggle I gave up
watching it and, stretching myself
again on my blanket, went to sleep.
Before striking tents the next morning
I went to look at the battle ground.
The slain insects were scattered in
every direction, but there were six or
seven watchful ants upon the back of
the snake,, which lay stretched out
dead near the ant hill."
HEALTH IN CORN BREAD.
This Accounts for the Good Condition of
tho Southern Laborer.
Behold the average colored laborer
on a southern plantation, said Hon. P.
IJ. Winston, of Minnesota and Vir
ginia, recently. IIow fat and sleek he
looks; how his shining eyes and
smooth, ebony skin reveal the robust
physical man. He is a type of perfect
health, and to what does he owe his
superb condition? I'll tell you in two
words corn bread. There is the
grandest food product in the world,
and all honor to the noble - American
who is trying to teach the old world
people the various delicious uses of
corn bread and the many palatable'
ways it can be prepared for the table.
If it were not for corn I don't know
how many of the poor people of Vir
ginia, white ami black, would exist.
It is in reality the mainstay of life in
many localities of the old state. But
to really love corn bread I think one
must be used to it from childhood,
youthern-born men of the old regime
commenced gnawing- on corn "pones"
when they were babies; as they grew
older the pone accompanied them on
every hunting and Ushing expedition,
and so, when maturity was reached,
corn in some form or other was wanted
v. t the tabic three times a day This
fact .will, I think, militate against any
extensive use of the cereal as food
cinon the , people of Europe they
havon't been used to it. It has always
puzzled me that our own people, out
side of the south, fail to appreciate the
glories of maize. In the great corn
ffrowinff states of the west its use is
very limited, and the oastern mind, bo
far as corn is concerned, is a howling
wilderness. - '.
MEN AND WOMEN.
Come Cardinal Points of Difference Be
tween the Sexes.
Women always show by their actions
that they enjoy going to church; men
are less demonstrative. When a wom
an becomes flurried she ;f eels for a f an ;
when a man becomes flurried he feels
for a cigar. Women jump at conclu
sions and generally hit, says the New
York Advertiser; men reason things
out logically and g-enerally miss the
truth. Some women can't pass a mil
linery shop without looking in; some
men can't pass a public house without
going in. A woman never sees a baby
without wanting to run to it; a man
never sees a baby without -wanting to
run away from it. Women love admir
ation, approbation, self-immolation on
the part of others; are often weak,
vain and frivolous. Ditto men. A
woman always carries her purse in her
hand, so that other women will see it;
a man carries his in his inside pocket,
so that his wife won't see it. A wom
an can sit in a theater for three hours
without getting all cramped up, catch
ing1 the toothache or becoming faint
for want of fresh air; a man can't. A
woman, from her sex and character,
has a claim to many things besides her
shelter, food and clothing. She is not
less a woman for being wedded; and
the man who is fit to be trusted with a
good wife recollects all which this im
plies, and shows himself at all times
chivalrous, sweet-spoken, considerate

habitat of the most diminutive species

of the males of these liliputian cattle
seldom exceed two hundred pounds,

usually average about one hundred
