' 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 age. 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.

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 Tribune. 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.

"Isn't it such pity you are only Chinese." New Mexico is a preat sheep coun try. There is but one other state or territory w liirh excels it in ahcep ruiinp.

What mother does not crave a strong and sturdy chHd r But wanttng U not enough. Suppose you want to go to Xew York or San rancsco, w.ll you ,it down and take it out in wanting? If you do, you certainly will never get to either place. If you want to go and mean to go, you'll buy your t.ckeU and take 1 4 IT ... t . T 1 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. i I I HI i 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 her child. " 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."
