Onions are a kind of all-around good
medicine AS whole onion- eaten at
bedtime will, by the next morning,
break the severest cold. Onions make
a good plaster to remove inflammation
and hoarseness. If an onion is mashed
so as to secare all the juice in it it
will make a most remarkable smelling
substance that will quiet the most ner

haled for a tew moments "will dull the
sense of smell and weaken the nerves

It all happened at one of theme pleasant
aea side resorts,. where life ia comedy from
day to day and tragedy has no place. She
just stepped on the raft which she thoug-ht
was moored, and in pure idleness f mood
fell to rocking: it from side to aide. Bat
the raft was not moored. Her rocking: had
slowly dislodged it from the aand, on which
it was grounded, and when she turned
aroand, she was afloat and the shore a rod
behind bcr. She cried for help and waa
heard by a lonely fisherman who sat at
Rome distance on the beach mending hia
nets. How slowly be got up. How slowly
be tramped across the sandy shore. And
she was drifting, drifting, drifting ! " Save
me" ! she cried, "aave me"! a the old
man came to the water's edge, The griz
zled mariner raised his hand to the side
of his mouth and cried hoarsely, "Walk
ashore "1 f .
That's all there waa of it. She was still
in shoal water. All she needed was the
timel v word of instruction aid advice.
; But suppose it had not come ? Suppose
she had not heeded it? Was there no
danger? The open sea, a frail. raft, ana a
frailer woman ! '
The woman on the raft i a type of hun
dreds of thousands of her sex who are
drifting into danger. Up to a definite day,
they have been enjoying lifej in perfect
security. Then, in a moment a sense of
impending danger comes. They are at the
mercy of disease. Every day increases tha
danger. ; They are drifting, drifting, drift
ing. Then cornea the cry for help. To
thousands of appeals there has come the
answer from' Dr. R. V. Pierce, chief con
sulting physician to the Invalids' Hotel
and Surgical Institute, Buffalo, N. V.,
" wa ts ashore! walk' Ashore ! I
You are still in the shallow waters of
disease. You can still get back without
more than inconvenience Uf the lana of
health behind you. All yam need is just
the right word of advice -and common
sense instruction in time, and the grip of a
helping hand. That isjust what Dr. Fierce
oners to every one Buffering!1 from disease ;
timely, health restoring, life saving advice,
practical help. It requires some confidence
to take advice when your wn senses are
against it. The woman on the raft conld
not see the bottom of the roily water, and
the land looked so far awry; So the woman
in disease can't see how she can be cured,
and recovery of health . seems hopeless.
And, perhaps, the very disease that has
begun to threaten her is consumption, that
dreadful disease regarded by millions aa
incurable. Her local doctors perhaps say,
" we can make your suffering a little less,
but there's no hope." j
1 Does Dr. Pierce claim to cure consump
tion ? That question isn't worth arguing
Look at the record. : Take a case in point,
' Here la -a man (or woman) with a hacking
cough, a hectic flush, night-sweats, great tmi
ciattoa or wasting of flesh, spitting of blood,
ahortneaa of breath and all the other symptoms.
After every remedy and every local physician
has failed, he, aa a last resort, takes "Golden
Medical Discovery " and the ooush vanishes, the
Cheek get back its natural color, aleep becomes
sound and refreshing, the spitting of blood
Mops, flesa and muacles become firm, weight
increases, and life goes along in quiet aad conip.
fort to the full limit of the three score yean

' Bnt may be it wasnt consumption after all
May be it wasn't. You kno it was something
that waa attacking the very Citadel of life, and
it was something that was cored by the use of
Dr. Pierce's Golden Media Discovery. And Dr.
Pierce is curing such "sofuetltings" right along
Willi a record -of over a quarter of a million
eases, and not more than three per cent, of
failures. ' --- " : i

aagea, which, if neglected or badly treated, lead
np to Consumption, can no longer be douWrd
in view, of the many thousands of well estab
lished cures of such cases reported by the most
trustworthy citizens. Many of these cases have
been pronounced consumption and incurable
by the best local physicians before the suner
er commenced the tine of Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery. Whether the doctors have

T. G. Imboden. of Decatur, Mo., in
an address delivered before an associ
ation of stock breeders, gave his ideas
as to beef cattle points as follows:
"There is ho one; breed : fcf beef cat
tle better than a?l others under all-circumstances
and coaditions.fi. ?r
The t rouble with cattle from the
butchers" 'standpoint is too big shoul
ders, giving the forequartef s too large
a proportion to the rest of the carcass,
"The muscles that are exercised the
most are the. toughest; for1 this reason
the inside two-thirds, of tike round ; is
good, while the outside third is not so
"A thick, mellow hide not a hard.
harsh hide denotes, more clean meat
than a thin hide.' A straight back, well
sprung rib and widih of loin indicates
a large amount ot , tne ; nign-pricea
meats, in i the. carcass. . 1 , V- . -:
The comparison of animals in the
show ring - is often so cjpse S that the
awarding of the 'prize turns on a very
small point, as a tie or a dimple in the
back, which cuts no hgnre! in tne use
fulness or profit of the animal.
"A typical beef animal , should have
a thicker neclc than the tlairy breeds,
the flesh should begin at the front; the
animal should have the greatest possi
bje thickness of flesh along the back
between the shoulder arid tho hips, and
the width of the hip shoull be carried
forward to the shoulders. il j
"The Angus are thickest-fleshed beef
cattle; their greatest fault: is too much
of a spread of the shoulder blades at
the top; they do not mature .quite as
quick as the Jlereords. jit would be
hard to tell which of the beef breeds
at .10 months old on the same care and
feed" would make the greatest gain.
"Young animals develop j muscle
along with the fat, and when fattened
young contain a larger proportion of
lean meat to the fat, and i are hence
more profitable to the butcher. The
first 1000 pounds put on al steer is the
cheapest, as the: animal is ' growing ,as
well as fattening, and thei jcost ; of in
crease of weight increases:, with the
age." . -;

he sees another group of; jsimilar buifdy
inys, icrciicu metier un inn, mm : .
first he thinks fhe&e to be. the same
cluster brought again irito view by
a curve in the road, . But! they are re
ally separate schools. Hie group first
noticed is the Northfield . school for
girls, and the other: at a: safe distance
of three miles, is the Mount llernjion
school for : young men. (These are the
famous schools founded y D-wigtit L.
Moody, and were his especial pride.
At Northfield, too, are tif Id the sum
mer conferences of Christians, which
have . received -wide attention.
'Mr, 'Moody's avowed object -in start
ing the schools was to "give a Christian
education to those who otherwise could
not afford ft. ; At the j girls' school
there are enrolled 370 ptipils. and at
(lie young man's, 413. j Mr. Moody's
death caused anxious solicitation ai To
what would -become of I the schools.
Kvery effort is : being maide to niake1
their foundation; secure.; j To this end
a whole army of helpers is being rallied
all over the world. The first purpose
is to raise a -Moody metiiorial . endow
ment fund of $3,000,000 to carry thfcm
on after the manner of their! presttit
management. ; There hasllieen pledged
already $50,000 byv one I person, and
many other .largesubscriptions jire
expected soon: At a meeting held! in
New York recently, at which the
trustees of all the schools, including
that - in Chicago, 'were Represented it
was voted unanimously f to continu"
the work of education j just as it - had
been done, carrying on the schools
and the summer conferees after he
present method. At this meeting fan
advisory committee was! appointed f to
have charge of the endowment fund,
the interest to make up the deficiency,
which results from charging only $100
for tuition when the cost is Stoo. Mr.
Moody persistently refutsed toStwrease
the tuition lest by o doing he .should
turn away th; very young men and
women he -wished to-helo. ' t

The estimates for ic6o,j based on
the treasurer's report of te last school
year for the running expenses of both
schools, are as follows!: ; , ? r

From these hcures it will be! seen
that $27,000 is needed for both. Mount

running expenses. 1 ernaps no better
idea can be given of what these schools
are doing and are striving to; attain
than is told by two graduates,' bhe of

A certain youth with aristocratic

ment of ' the onlooker. The work
which the students have to do consists
of farm workr milking and caring for
the cews and there is a large' herd
of cleaning and caring for the horses,
feeding pigs and chickens, making
butter and sawing wood, driving
teams, garden work and caring for
the lawns, , also sweeping, mopping,
care of furnaces work in the dining
room and kitchen and laundry and
work in the. blacksmith, carpenter,
paint and harness shops and in the
canning establishment, which kas re

farm fruits. But the boys have time
for sports, baseball, football and ten

debating societies and a strongYoung
Men's Christian Association, tljtc stu

At Northfield is the same kindly
welcome . to the new students.: The
first thing a girl docs, of course, is to
inspect her room, and in a jiffy with
the mysterious art of woman she makes
suit of bare floor and walls a coscy and
wetty little apartment where she reigns
supreme all her days at schools. Lpkc
her brother she has to work ani hour a
day, but only such as is a woman's part.
The daily programme is similar, ex

about every country on the globe has

iroportion at Northfield Seminary
lolds good. Many came from the farm

these young men and women jthat Mr.
Moody had in mind ; when be estab

him, not only all over the cojuntry on
his travels, but. tight near his home at
Northfield, young men sndf"" women
who were suffering through poverty
for lack of education. It was to his'
mind waste material that ought to be
1ut to use. Many at Mount-, Hermon
lave worked in store's : ori already
learned a trade. One-fifth fi the stu
dents enter some form of Christian
work. At the seminary candidates for
admission must be at least 13 rears old,

A full and thorough couf si of study
in the English Bible was o6e of the
chief aims. in founding the M0unt Her
mon and Northfield schools. This
study, therefore, holds a central , place
m the curriculum. Every student ,has
two period! of Bible study! iri class
each week. He may increase this num
ber by taking two courses at-the same
time, or by electing Bible as one of his
daily studies. The Bible itsflf is the
text book. Other books are used as
helos, but never as substitutes for it
Full outlines are furnished ti the stu
