' During the coming 12 month the
picturesque driver buy and the pa
tient mine mule will be (rradimlly
uperseded at the anthracite mine by
the unsentimental but useful und ef
flcient compressed air locomotive.
The machine which will diaplac the
bojr and the mule li been aoiitrht
for during many year, and tne
operatori have at laat found it. A
test hai been made by the Philadel
phia and Heading Coal company, and
haa been o satisfactory that the
company ia now preparing t place
the compressed air liK'iimotivei in
all IU mine, and retire from r
Ire the 3,000 mule now used to pull
the car in and out of the working.
Other companle are watching the
experiment with great intercut, and,
aa it promiaea to prove economical
and efficient, the engine will doulit
lesi be placed In all the other minca
within a abort time. Home yenra
ago the electric motor promised to
oust the mule and the boy, but
while they are still hi utn at aoine
of the mlnei they nre not ao auc
ressf.J aa to be gcnernlly adopted,
aay the New York Tribune.
The paaaing of the mule and the
boy will mark a change lu mining
which ha been anticipated for
year, with other big improvement,
but It will deprive the mlnea of one
of their moat interesting features.
The hoy! are In a cln.it by theni
nelve, differing from boy employed
In any other work. They are a dur
ing, rock lean Int. moat of them be
tween Ml and 20 year old. In con
stant danger, brave, lending a rough,
atrenuoua life, sssMch make them
Keif reliant at an unusually early
The big mule which they control
are aa different from the average
mule a their driver differ from the
average boy. Kept In the mine for
year at a time, without alght of
sky, aniff of frch air or taate of
green graae, they live a life apart;
nolitary and deaolate, often develop
ing a vtrloiisness which make tlaem
aa dangeroua a the full of roof
which constantly threaten the live
of the mine worker.
Many a Imply youngater ha been
brought out of Ilia mine maimed or
dead, and the rejNirt ha et opjio
alte hi name the word: "Kicked
hy a mule.' In the course of a year
the death from mule kick amount
to nttout SO, while the mule which
are killed In revenge nr unnum
bered. The animal are often ae
veraly lll-trentod. Their tongue
have been pulled out, ear have been
allowed to run Into them and eruah
them agninat the aide of a working,
and ground glna haa Ihicii fed to
them In their mash, and the mule
thu treated die fpilckly. It 1 dif
ficult for the couinnli-a to diaciiline
the boy, berauae It la ao hn ril to de
tect when they have wilfully Injured
an animal. A vicloua mule get a
reputation which leada ipiirkly to IU
being tamed or killed, nml It la usual
ly In one process or another that the
daring boy get hurt.
The animal ar capable of a
great amount of work, although the
conditions do sour their tampers,
and, barring accidents and intention
al Injuries, tiny live for many years,
despite the fact Hint they nre con
fined under ground nit the time.
Their aickneaaea and tlieir Injuries
compel their Itelng brought to the
surface and treated In the rompnny
hoepltal, which l a constant source
of eipensn, and this is one of the
reason why the companies desire to
dlaplac them. The eiiglnea, too,
will do the work faster, while the
heavy cost of feed nnd the space
taken by the nlatilee will he saved,
nd the driver hoys nnd stable Losses
will be replaced by tlie enginus.

Two distinct processes for washing
clothes are now in use in the family
laundry. In one case the clothes are
boiled as our grandmothers boiled
them; in the other they are not
boiled. The latter method, which ia
tiie newer one, is erroneously- culled
the "cold process" method, though
wnrui, not cold, water is generally
used. Sometimes even hot water is
employed. The temperature of the
water and the question whether the
clothcM shall be boiled or not depends
upon the Inundry soap used. There
lire ninny varieties of Inundry Konp
in the market to-day which contain
pariifTine or naphtha, and it is not
necessary to use anything but wurin
water with these soaps. Most house
keepers, however, find it more agree
able to heat water quite hot for
washing in winter, and easier to
wusli in warm water, no matter what
soup is used, say the New York
Oldtitne housekeepers who have es
tablished and rigid Ideas of the proi
er method of washing clothes tu-a
often, no doubt, shocked when they
see how derelict the modern woman
Is In washing, according to old ways.
They canont deny that her clothes
are as aweet and white as their own,
and they know she does her work
easier than they do. It is only a few
generations sine the oldttme pound
ing barrel was abandoned. No one
pound clothes now, and, if the truth
must be told, very fuw persons are
boiling their clothes to-dny. Only a
few now use old fnshloned soaps of
a strong alkali nature, which demand
Hint the clothes ahnll be boiled. A
large number of people use some vn
riety of ao.-.p which will do its best
work In warm or hot not boiling
-water. When clothes lire boiled,
after they have bcn wnahed with
one of these soups containing paraf
flno or naphtha, they ur not as
white a they nre when not subject
to a boiling temperature.
All aiibatnuces obtained from crude,
petroleum used in cleniiing, whether
gusolcne, beiuine or naphthn, nre
generally included in this country un
der the mime naphtha, and are local
ly called pa raff) lie III England. It is
very di ITurcnt from pnrnlllne wax.
This pa rath ne from petroleum has
been successfully used for years in
Kiiglnnd in washing clothes, nnd only
lately in laundry aoaps lu this coun
try. When clothe are wnshed by thu
"cold process" th method to be pur
sued la an easy one. If there is no
regular supply of hot water In the
house, let the boiler lie filled early
in th morning hy some man of the
family. It I too hard work for a
woman, flliav a bar of the proper
kind of soap. Put the shaved onp
lu two quarts of water In a tan ket
tle, and set It on the stove, where
It will molt, but not boll. When the
breakfast is cooked, the water in the
boiler will be hot enough to wash
with. IMvlde It between two Urge
wnshtub set out 011 a stand for
work. Divide the sonp which has
been melted also between them, nnd
stir It in. Put the while clothes lu
th larger tub of soupy hot wntcr.
and let them soak for half an hour,
while breakfast Is served. At the end
of this time rub the white clothes
through this water and wring them
Into the second tub, from which they
must also be rubbed and wrung into
another tub or a clothes basket, to
b rinsed. Wash the eoarser cottons,
then the llnnnels, nnd then the cal-
'' s through these two waters, und
Iny each set by Itself. Meanwhile,
empty the tubs, or let some strong,
able-bodied man do It, and hate them
filled agnin with warm, but not very
hot, water, to rinse th clothes in.
Wnrm water will tnke the soap out
better than cold. Itliisc the white
clothes first. They should lime been
covered, so ns not to become perfect
ly colli. After they have been thor
oughly rinsed in the two tubs of wit
ter, wring them very dry. Starch
them .hat need it, and hung them nil
out on the clothes line. Ulnse the
flannels, coarse clothes and calicoes
urccssively through th rinsing wa

the train. But suppose a woman says, - now no i mhm
thin train goes to New York?" She will have to take
the word of others for it. The time-card says the train
goes to New York. People who have traveled on the
same train say so. How foolish it would be for a
woman who wanted to make the trip, to say, " Perhaps
these train people are deceiving me, and the women who
say the train goes to New York don't knew what they
are talking about."
This is just the position of the prospective mother
who is weak and sickly and wants to be strong a:.i! well.
Dr. l'ierce's Favorite Prescription is offered to women
as a means of health and strength. Thousands of
women who have used the medicine allirm that it does
all that is claimed for it. If the sick woman wants
to he well, if the weak mother wants to bu strong,
she has the same means open to her in " FavoritO
Prescription" which have been so success
fully nsed by thousands and tens of thou
siinils nf other women.

It would be ridiculous for a train
advertised to run regularly to New
York to run its passengers
away on, on some prairie
and h ave them. It would
be equally ridiculous to
suppose that passengers
would take that train day after day and
year after year and after being deceived
and disappointed return home and tell
their neighbors that the train is all right
aud dues what it is scheduled to do.
It is equally absurd to suppose that Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription could for near
ly a third of a century deceive and disappoint
women, and that these deceived and disap
pointed women would praise this medicine as
tho greatest boon to the weak and sick of
their sex, aflinirmg that it made them well and cured them after every other
means had failed to give permanent benefit.
As a matter of fact and of record, nothing is more sure than that Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription has been the means of giving perfect health to women of
all ages, and all conditions of ill-health, and that the use of this medicine has
robbed maternity of its pangs and given tho mother strength and health to give
" When I wrote to you in March asking advice as to what to do for myself," writes Mrs.
Klla Reynolds, of C.ullie, McLean Co., Ky., "I was exiiectinK the baby's coming in June,
and was sick ail of the time. Had been sick fur several months. Coulil not get anything
to stay in my stomach, not even water. Had female weakness lor several years. My hips,
back and lower bowels hurt me all the time. Had numbness from my hips down. Had
several hard cramping spells, and was not able to do anv work at all. I received your
answer in a few days, telling me to take Dr. l'ierce's Tavorite Prescription. I took three
IwUles, and tielore 1 had taken it a week I was better, and before I had taken it a month I
was able to help do my work. On the 27th of Mav mv babv was torn, and I was only sick
three hours, nnd had an easy time. The doctor said" I got along nicelv. We praise Mr.
l'ierce's medicine for it has cured me. I am better now than I have been'for thirteen years.
1 hope all that are afflicted will do a I have done and be cured."
Mrs. Carrie II. Donner, of Dayton, Green Co., Wis., writes: "I can highly recommend
Dr. l'ierce's Favorite Prescription having taken it for nine months previous to confine
ment. I suffered icurcely any compared with what I had at other times."
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription is essentially a woman's medicine. It estab
lishes regularity, dries weakening drains, heals inflammation and ulceration, and
cures female weakness. It is the best preparative for maternity and as a tonic
fur nursing mothers is absolutely unrivaled.
Sometimes a dealer, tempted 'by the little more profit paid on the sale of less
meritorious preparations, will oifer a substitute for "Favorite Prescription" as
"just as good.' Judi,'c.l by its record of cures of womanly ills, there is no
other medicine just as good as " Favorite Prescription."
