"In my personal experience of
thirty-two years with Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription," said Mrs.
Celia Cheeseman, Box 160, Route 2,
San Leandro, Calif., "I must say it
is the finest tonic and nervine for wo
men that I have ever known. It
relieved me of pains from which I
had suffered at times since my devel
opment into womanhood. I think I
owe my present good health to Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription, and it
has my highest endorsement as a
woman's special tonic and. nervine."

Pleasures and Business.
A man that knows how to mix pleas
ures with business is never entirely
possessed by them; he either quits or
resumes them at his will; and in the
use he makes of them he rather finds
a relaxation of mind than a dangerous
charm that might corrupt him. St.

The relatives of English peers do

In a delirium of fever a newspa
per reporter seee the call of death.
This la a vivid place of Imagination
dealing- with a thought that some
time or another has come to us all.
IN HEALTH, George Graves edited
baseball news on a Quaker City
daily. Now, aflame with fever, he
tossed restlessly on a cot In Jef
In delirium he sometimes cheered
ghostly ball players or sat up In bed
to better write imaginary snappy nar
ratives of the drama bis heated brain
unfolded before him. When rational,
his sparkles of wholesome wit, his
calm courage, and pleasing courtesy
gave zest and spirit to the surgical
ward where he lay.
The medical wards were overflow
ing, every private room was engaged,
hence Graves was allowed to trespuss
on the good graces of "Big Jim" Ken
nedy, the house surgeon for the surgi
cal section. He had once roomed in
the same flats with the newspuper
man and took a lively interest in his
The usual crisis was near for
Graves. His friends on the paper had
chipped In generously, from managing
editor to copy boys, and tbe best
physicians In the city were bis at
tendants. His condition was serious.
A black depression shadowed his desk
In the Broad street skyscraper.
Ha woke at midnight, entirely ra
tional. There was a bustle at the
door. Someone was brought in on a
stretcher. A bed next his own was
prepared, the figure was lifted into it.
Graves thought he saw two sleek
Chinamen standing near, looking with
'sad faces at the bed. When they
had (one, to make sure, he called
"Thlee Lung, Chink," said the doc
jtor. "The chaps you saw by the bed
are his brothers. Hich, but has bad
case peritonitis. Native doctor on
Race street prescribed yellow paper
with tumble-ban sauce, to cast out the
devils In bis body Only one chance
for him operation tomorrow, washing
out of abdominal cavity with saline
'solution may live may die."
The foot of the Chinaman's bed was
propped up rather high when Graves
woke the next day, near noon. The
faint smell of ether came to him.
Presently the patient began to Jabber.
Graves sat up In bed, his matted hair
clustering In wads around his gunt
face, with Its ragged ends of fever
beard. But bis eyes sparkled, and a
smile twitched the corners of his
mouth. His friends scented the fun.
"Thlee Lung will now give the Chi
nese version of a Swiss mountaineer
yodellng," he sputtered. "One lung
would fall I Observe hlni carefully,
As tbe etherlc sleep steadily lifted
from the Chinaman, he renewed his
Jabbering, mixing our English pro
fanity with plaintive high-keyed bluts
In bis mother tongue. At the first
pause Graves spoke again:
"Imitation of a steamboat making
a landing. Notice particularly the
whistle and its absolute fidelity to na
Piping yelps, ludicrously like the
whistle, Immediately followed. The
Chinaman's after-operation agony was
Intensified by his high fever. In spite
of the seriousness of the case the oth
er patients roared with laughter at
the predictions and their humorous
"Be a good boy, Mr. Graves," said
the nurse, coming up to his bed. "Lie
!down and try to sleep."
Graves had a rise of two degrees
jtn temperature, and the ice-water tub
'was rolled to his bedside. He stood
It like the game fellow that be was,
and experienced much relief when
wrapped In a blanket afterward.
Presently he found himself on the
brink of a very high cliff. Over Its
edge ran a wire cable, and hanging
from It were many ropes, each at
tached to a stout pulley which ran
along the top of the cable.
Garbed and bearded like the pic
tures In the family Bible, a patriarch
stood near the cliffs brink, writing In
a huge book the names of people who
Each arrival caught one of the
ropes and slid over the edge of the
cliff, suspended from the heavy cable.
All shot down Into the dense mist be
low and vanished. Their destination
was hidden from view.
Tbe throng was very large and it
seemed to Graves t:.at they would
never stop coming. It reminded him
of the crowds arriving at tlr city
parks on a sultry Saturday night.
Grave-faced men with frock coats and
silk bats were there; women of the
gutter ; children and even babies ;
' tvirnii tit nrnrlr 1 n crfnpn nml vnnthi
and maids. Every type of humanity,
every color and every garb that Graves
had ever seen in the world's activities
or beheld In pictured presentation,
was there. The panorama of person
ality dazed him.
There was not a word spoken, not
a whisper exchanged between any of
the arrivals; even the babies voiced
no cry of pain or gurgle of pleasur
able emotion. There seemed to be a
complete apathy or Insensibility of any
one personality with regard to the
presence or condition of any other
In the gathering. Graves wss puz
zled. He came at last before the patri
arch, and murmured bis name In re
sponse to some Inward prompting. He
was told to swing over the brink as
those had done who had preceded him.
"But why?" said he.
"This is death!" replied the patri
arch, as he took the name of a beau
tiful woman and then that of a gen
eral in full uniform who was just be
"What?" ejaculated the amazed
"This is death!" calmly replied the
registrar, and he again wrote the
names of several. One of them wore
garments of fine linen, one the taw
dry garb of the slums.
"Does everyone die In this way?"
asked Graves. It was so different
from what he had Imagined It would
"Kings and queens, and great gen
erals, laborers and paupers, sick wom
en and tender babies?"
"But," went on the bewildered
young man, "I was always taught that
at death there was a classi3cation
"There Is a switch on the cable In
the mist below," answered the grave
ly majestic figure. "There It Is known
where each Is to go and there are no
mistakes when the paths divide."
Graves pondered. More people
passed him. The procession seemed
endless. Back In the throng he saw
a Chinaman it was the same one who
had occupied the bed next to him in
"Well," said he, and there was no
fear in his heart as he spoke, "if
fragile babies and gentle ladies, brave
generals, criminals and saints must
all go through the same procedure,
I guess It Is good enough for me."
He reached out his hand for the
pendant rope. The Chinaman stepped
in front of him, Jerked it from his
fingers, and swung over the cliff.
He looked around. The hospital
walls stared at him. It was midnight
and very still. Kennedy and the nurse
bent over the bed next to his. They
were putting a screen around it. He
raised feebly on bis elbow to see bet
ter and noticed that he was perspiring
freely. The nurse turned to him.
"Don't make any noise, Mr. (iraves.

All States Recognize
Laws Made by Others
The Constitution of the United
States imposes certain obligations
upon the states In their dealings with
each other, Section 1, Article IV, pro
viding thai "full faith and credit shall
be given in each state to the public
acts, records and judicial proceedings
of every other state." This clause has
been held to mean that In civil cases,
when the courts of one state have
given a Judgment, such Judgment will
be recognized and enforced by the
courts of every other state without a
new trial. It also ieuns that con
tracts legally entered Into In one state
are binding and enforceable In anoth
er. In the matter of divorce, by this
clause a state is required to recognize
a divorce granted In any other state,
even though It may have been granted
for reasons for which the laws 6f the
first state would not allow a divorce.
The only restriction which courts have
upheld in their interpretation of this
clause of the Constitution is that the
state granting the divorce shall have
Jurisdiction over the parties; that is,
that the party should have a bona fide
residence within the state and that
proper notice of suit should be given.
Thus New York must recognize Ne
vada divorces if it be shown that the
plaintiff had a legal residence in Ne
vada and the defendant had been le
gally notified of the suit.
There are so many things that might
be said about Palestine In spring time !
To begin with, It Is one of the must
beautiful countries In the world. It is
well worth visiting for Its own lake,
quite apart from Its religious associa
tions. The wild flowers on the Judean
hills, standing out In their bright red
and yellow and blue against the bare
rock (for there Is very little grass),
are a sight to be remembered ; and
they set you wondering whether the
makers of those stained-glass windows
In our Gothic churches can all of them
have been to Palestine, for the flowers
shown there have always an unnatural
brightness and absence of a green
background. C. W., in The Outlook
Engineer With a Heart
The train was speeding along toward
the tunnel and the eclipse was gradu
ally getting to total. Westchester com
muters were straining their eyes for a
final glimpse, many wishing the train
would get In a Jam so that they could
see the great show. Then the train
stopped. It remained still until the
sun was entirely covered and then
moved quickly Into the tunnel.
The engine driver produced more
good will for that road than weeks of
propaganda and dozens of official proc
lamations, and at Grand Central many
passengers moved forward to thank
him. Wall Street Journal.
(Prepared ky the United States Department
More than 1,000,000 head of breeding
stock on farms in the United States
are undergoing systematic Improve
ment through the use of pure bred
sires, according to a report Just Is
sued by the bureau of animal indus
try, United States Department of Agri
culture. Persons participating in this
work at the close of the year 1924
numbered 15,137 exclusive users of
pure bred sires, widely distributed
among 40 states. The department, in
conjunction with state and county ex
tension workers, Is aiding these stock
owners to Improve their methods of
breeding and feeding.
This organized plan known as tbe
better-sires-better-stock campaign has
resulted in noticeable rivalry nmong
counties and states, where agricultural
leaders have used it as a means of
bettering farm live stock. Ohio, Ken
tucky and Virginia each have more
than 2,000 farmers enrolled In the cam
paign. Largely through the activities
of county extension agents, 40 coun
ties In nine states each have the dis
tinction of possessing 100 or more live
stock owners who are using pure bred
slrea exclusively In all their live stock
breeding operations. Pulaski county,
Virginia, leads the list with 592 such
breeders, and Union county, Kentucky,
Is second with 457 participants. The
chief advances in the progress of the
work during the last three months of
1924 occurred In Kentucky, Vermont
and Ohio. A conspicuous new center
of interest In this field of live stock
betterment was In Lee county, Iowa.
Altogether 235 additional stock owners
affiliated themselves with the cause
during the three-month period.
In commenting on the keen Interest
which live stock owners are taking In
systematic Improvement by the better
sires route, specialists of the bureau of
animal Industry call attention to the
most Important result of the work
namely, the superior types of animals
which these breeders are raising and
the substantial market benefits they
are deriving. As a typical, example,
an Oklahoma stock owner reported to
the department that "the difference In
price on the market more than pays
to keep pure breds even though we
sell no breeding stock." Scores of
similar reports show that the benefits
are practically the same In all parts of
the country. The department's rec
ords, showing the gradual growth of
the better-sires movement, appear to
be an Index to the growing prevalence
of good live stock on farms and in
But before good live stock can be
produced In large numbers, the spe
cialists add, there must be a wide ap
preciation of tbe utility value of good
breeding coupled with the actual use
of high-class pure bred sires at the
head of tbe herds and flocks. The
better-slres-better-stock campaign un
dertakes to supply this need In an
Any live stock owner who replaces
his Inferior mule breeding animals
with good pure breds la eligible to take
an active part in this work. The de
partment grants each participant a
barn sign, "Pure Bred Sires Exclusive
ly Used on This Farm," besides fur
nishlng helpful Information on the
breeding, feeding and care of farm
The new report on the progress of
the work , contains summaries of state
and county activities, statistics on
number, kind and breeding of animals,
announcements and terse facts on tbe
practical value of Improved stock. It

Breed Dairy Cows for
Late Fall Freshening
Dairymen who can successfully prac
tlce a system whereby their cows will
freshen during the early winter months
almost Invariably make a greater net
return and find that the cow's pro
duction holds up longer, as when
spring grass comes the milk flow Is
stimulated after three or four months
of winter production.
In addition the price of butterfut Is
Increased during these months, which
Is an added Inducement for early win
The fact that most fanners have
more time at their disposal during the
winter than during the growing sea
son constitutes the third Important
reason for having the cows freshen
during- the late fall and early winter
months. II. It. Lascellea, Colorado

Calf Needs Colostrum
All calves should have sn opportu
nity to suck their dams st least two
or three times because, as dairymen
well know, the first milk, or colostrum.
Is necessary for the new-born calf In
order to clean out Its bowels. This
milk seems to be laxative; nature has
made It so for a specific purpose and
tbat Is why a rslf should suck Its darn
for at least a day or two. After that
It Is best to resort to hand feeding.
As a general rule, start by feeding the
calf one pound of milk for each ten
pounds of Its weizht

but little anticipation, for the
