We seldom fear a
danger that we cannot
see. The danger of
being run-down by a
borne is a verv real
one ta everybody, the
danger of being mur
dtrea by a microbe
does not trouble us.
And yet the minute mi
crobe is more dangerous
than the wildest horse.
The only people who caa
afford not to fear the mi
crobes of disease are those
who keep their blood pure
and rich. These are prac
tically immune from the
attacks of most microbes.
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discov
ery purifies and enriches the blood, and
gives the body a vigorous vitality. It
cures scrofula, eczema, boils, pimples
and other eruptive diseases which are
caused by impure blood.

Nearlv eer?ooe believes bim-
te!f to y economical. Eyen the
most ruthlesa spend-thrift can
really be persuade to admit his
fau.li To excuse one's own errors
and misdeeds is as natural as is
the inhailins of the air that tills
one's nostrils; yet it is well, some
tirnea, to take a moral inventory
and see just how one stands on
It would be amusing, were it not
so much of a detriment to the indi
tidual. to note the queer procedure
of .gome people with whom one
conies in contact. Take ' some for
examfie of the middle class, the
honest, hard-working citizens who
are the batjk-bone of the grearcoui
mora wealUi Many "a house-wife
economizes in Btne lines with all
the honesty of her nature, only to
waste twice the tfmouritin some
other way. For "instance: she
wears her old shoes again this win
ter because she can't afford a new
pair for Sunday; she turns her old
black dress and mends he half
worn gloves; then she goes to town
and gets a hat that is two or three
times too fine to match the baiande
of her outfit. That is spasmodic
economy in one form.
Again: another home-maker
"skimps" and saves and works and
worries over the problem of dress
ing the children well on the
amount of money to be had for
that purpose. By rare good man
agement the clothes question is
settled and a dollar or two left
over. Tommy and Jimmy tease
mother for taffy and lemonade at
the picnic, and mother gives in and
the surplus cash disappears inside
Tommy's and Jimmy's small vests.
The twins have a bad time of it,
the next day, but mother doctors
them up. and then wishes she had
her money back. There is spas
modic economy in another form.
Again; you, often see specimen of
manhood who insist on having big
wages or doing no work. He jnay
he honest in his ideas, but he de
-pises the ten-cent pieces that mak
the dollars. In other worda, he
works when there is $2.50 or $3.00
a day in it. and when the wages
drcp, ao docs he. Tbetn he proceeds
to eat up and wear out the small
amount earned and loaf again, like
Micawber, for "something to turn
up. I uat is spasmomc economy
with a vengeance. The steady,
even place is the sort of srtide that
carries one swiftly and surely past
the mile-posts on tb road to suc-
cess. Keasou it ut ana ao not
waste with the left hand what you
save with the right.
Quit a large congregation as
sembled in the M. E. church on
Thursday evening last at the
Christmas tree. The church was
decorated according to the season,
and the tree was loaded with pres
