How's Your Liver? Is the Oriental salatation, knowing that good health cannot exist without a healthy Liver. When the Liver is torpid the Bowels are-sluggish and constipated, the food lies in the stomach undigested,, poisoning the' blood; frequent headache ensues ; a feeling of lassitude, despondency and nervousness indicate how the whole -system is deranged. Simmons Liver .Regulator has been the means of restoring more people to health and happiness by giving them a healthy Liver than any agency -known on earth. It acts with extraordinary power and efficacy. NEVER BEEN DISAPPOINTED THE Beglr. It, seems to be almost a perfect curator all disease or the stomaoh P andBow e il aU W. J. ilcELEoY, Maoon. Qa.

Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery will effect a cure. Thousands have been saved by it—thousands more are putting it off till too late. For every form of Scrofula, Bronchial, Throat, and Lunf Affections, Weak Lungs, Severe Coughs, and kindred ailments, it is a positive'remedy. It's guaranteed to do all that's claimed for it. If it doesn't benefit or cure, in «very case, your money is returned. _The " Discovery" is the only Liver, Blood and Lung Remedy that's sold so. Think what a medicine it must be!

World's Dispensarv Medical Association, Makers, itfo. 663 Main "•Street, Buffalo, 2f. Y. . Way Up. Statements often appear in poultry- papers and others that hens can be made to pay ?1 a- year, and that one-half that amount will readily covernhe cost of keeping-a year, leaving- the other half for profit. Upon this basis it is easy to fig-ure lOOhens will pay $50 as profit and 1,000 hens S500—a fine living- for a small family. The hens can be purchased by watching the market at not over 20 cents apiece or an inv'estiju'nt of S208. Then, counting-the houses and the feed at §:;00, it is easy to see a very larjfe profit in the business: and the beauty of it is that there is no delay. The income commences immediately after the hens a.re bought. That this much is realized in many cases there is no doubt: but that every one can do this, or even half as^vell, is not true, as many have ascertained by practical experience. It is said that experience is a dear teacher, and it is certainly very true, in the poultry'business. Those who make the business a success, in a very large majority of cases commence on a small scale, and increase as their experience and business warrant. It seems a small matter to feed and water a* lot of hens and g-ather up the eggs, and it is this that induces so many "to make the- attempt, only to find that there are many details that, while they do not seem important, yet if neglected will make a considerable difference in the profits. In fact, it is the attention given _ to these details that assures success. In making- a start in the poultry business begin on a small scale. Get a g-ood breed, suitable to the purpose for which they are wanted. In a majority of cases one of the general purpose breeds will prove the most satisfactory. Build a cheap house larg-e enough to accommodate forty or fifty hens, and by the time vou ha.ve kept that number for awhile you can tell-pretty well whether you care to invest more larg-c- ly. If the results "are satisfactory, and you want to raise poultry for market rather than eg-g-s. get an incubator. Fowls of all kinds must be fed and cared for reg-ularly. They need a variety of food, pure water, clean quarters, and such conditions as are necessary to maintain g-ood health. As long as the fowls can be kept healthy it is eomparatm-ly easy to make them profitable; hence g-ood care must be taken to SCCUP this condition as fully as possible. V,hnt others have done and are doing can be done ag-ain, but as with rnany other thing's .more or less experience is necessary, and this can be gained at less expense with a small number of fowls than with a large number.—St. Louis Republic. kninstcr Who Hus Been Successful, 1 have had the care of sheep and raised sheep since I was twelve years of age. I am 'thirty-five years past and have kept them in almost every way you could imagine. The first winter we had sheep, we kept them in a straw pen seven feet big-h, thirty feet square, with gate at south end, with God's green earth for floor and blue sky and clouds .for roof. This was for fifty sheep. They came out all right in the spring. Of course it took more feed to keep them' fed them fodder and corn on cob, and hay for dinner. The next winter we used a log house, twenty feet square. Fed shelled corn and oats mixed, hay in racks, and fodder for fllnner; with about one quart of oats and corn for each sheep We found that that was too-warm, so I made sheep stable of boards, thirty feet square, with racks for hay and with loft above for hay. I now feed com and cob. 1 grind iu a common one-horse grinder, and mix with oats. I find that they keep in good order and do well Last fall my cows and .sheep grazed on meadow til] last of November, and I had a good crop of hay off it. That is 'one advantage in keeping sheep. It does away with mice in meadows, and bumble bees, that are so troublesome to teams. For twenty-five sheep you must give them shed room DO less than twenty feet square, with racks on two sides or make it in length and not so wide I have mine on west of bam till cold weather, then change to a barn shed for lambs to be dropped. Lambs can stand cold weather after they are three daj's old without much care. A good sheep-house can be built cheaply by taking the south side of the barn; one side of it is made and 700 feet of third-class lumber will make the rest. Have four windows, to let in sunlight; for a barn that is fifty feet loan- make twelve feet wide, with rack for forty sheep. Of course you must consider the kind of sheep and size. I have always kept the Shropshire and Southdowns. I believe they pay the best. A rack may be made of woven pickets; fasten to side of the barn, then take fence boards and make a box below the rack that will catch all seeds and fine hay, so there will be no waste. It seems strange so many are without sheep. Some say: "I would not be bothered with them," while others have no pasture for them. I say, all farmers could keep some sheep to their ~ain — Cor.

Judge Brown to the place on th, preme Bench made vacant by Justice Miller's death, says Harper's Weekly. It had been considered almost curtain by Washington correspondents. • and other persons who ought to be well informed, that Attorney-General Miller would receive the appointment. .Judge Brown's name had been under consideration by the President once before, upon the death of Justice Matthews, and his rejection at that time was too hastily interpreted to mean that his chances of I i" ~ * 7""' iu ° S 1 -"-"- 1 *"r tne elevation to the Supreme Bench under Business, ' Says he.

March 2, 1838. lie entered the class of- r 5C at Yale, and was graduated when only twenty years old. lie afterward studied law and moved to Detroit, where he became so prominent a member of the bar that he was appointed district attorney. In isr.S he was made circuit .judge of Wayne Coua ty, and held that position for about seven years. In 1S73 President Grant appointed him District Judge of the Circuit Court of the United States for the 'Eastern District of the Sixth Circuit—a position he has held ever since. Owing-to its geographical situation, an unusually large part of the. eases brought before the district court of Detroit are admiralty cases, and in this branch of the United (States law Judge Brown is recognized as the-very hig-he'st authority. It was of his decisions in ad miralty cases that one of .the ablest Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States, with the full concurrence of his colleagues, once remarked: "They need no revision in this court of the proper application of the provisions oi . brittlest ones he can get.

V, BAKER & 00,, Dorchester, Mass, An Explanation That Seems to Be Based on Close Observation. _I have dug- at different times and in different localities three wells. When they were first clufr the water did not taste all right. I attributed the bad taste to the earth : and stones. One of them is thirty feet deep, and I used to water seven horses at it and at the same time we used the water from it in the family. There never was better or purer water, and this continued so long- as we watered the horses and were drawing largs quantities from it each day. I used it for twelve years in this way. Then I dug- a well near my barnyard and put a wind-mill over it to pump water for my stock. Prom that time I did not water horses at the old weU and the water be^an to taste and smell badly shortly afterwards. The well filled tip so thaf-thsrs were nearly fifteen feet of water in it. I hare abandoned it entirely aud get my water from the ixw well, on account of its purity, because so much water is pumped from it for stock. Neither slops nor any thing 1 else impure can be found within four rods of the old well. I have attributed the bad taste and smell to the fact that the water stands so long-. I believe I am right. I can see no reason' why water will not get stale by standing- as well as any thing else. I am away from home a large share of mytime and find very many wells the water from which tastes and smells very badly indeed, and in every instance it comes from wells that are nearly- full. On the contrary, when I find good water it is from deep wells in which the water" never gets very high. I believe the water from shallow wells is purer than that from deep ones, because the water in the former is drawn ont soon after it has flowed in, while in the other case the water is, in - great part, made up of surface drainage, and has become more or less foul from stag-nation and lack of aeration.—C.M.Lusk, in Kural New Yorker. STRAIGHTEN THE GATE§. How to Keep Farms f om Harlnjr a Slovenly Appearance. In riding through the country I frequently pass g-ood farms that'have a way-down appearance. The barn doors are off their hinges, wire fences loosened just enough for stock to pass throng or over, and sheds out of repair. But when 1 think of my place as it looked ten years ago I believe it looked worse than my neighbors', thouffh I flatter myself it looks better now. Some thin o- s which look- badly on the farm are the. results of chance. Forinstance, havin^ a stack of hay near a fence in the pas° .ture, I have turned the fence about the stack and left it to be straig-htened when I had more time. I have now but one crooked fence. I have made a movable fence of lumber and wire. The panels have three wires for stock and five for hogrs. The top and bottom bars project at cither end and.are secured by a triangiiljr piece as shown in the en- -MB. JUSTICE BBOWN. graving, for the wire fence I have made iron bars of l.'f inch tubing 6 feet long- with holes at proper distances to pass through the wires. This is for temporary fencing-. When I 'take dowa a wire fence I have a windlass made on a wag-on something- like a cultivator frame with the tongnie in front so I can wind up the wire in a short time. -It will reel up four miles an hour. To prevent the doors and grates coming- off as formerly I usa a pair of bolts, one in the bottom hing-e and another through the-top hing-e in the hole nearest the joint.—-J. F.

Besides his learning and acumen in this very delicate arid difficult branch of the law. Judge Brown is recognized as possessing a comprehensive mind and a clear judicial spirit that fit him for the consideration of all classes of cases likely to come before the court. It is possible that Judge. Brown 'might have reached the Supreme Bench before if there had not been another candidate from his own State at the time of Justice Matthews' death. This gentleman, Mr. Alfred Russell, is^aid to have been urged at that time by Senator McMillan and other .influential men. The appointment of Justice Brewer relieved the President of his difficulty in choosum- between the two Detroit candidates at that time. Judge Brown is a warm friend of Judg-e Jackson, his late superior circuit judge,, and. also of Justice Blatchford, and is well known by the Supreme Court, and by members of the bar generally who practise before it, on account of his frequent appearances in Washington a "counsel in admiralty cases. In stature the new Justice is rather below the middle size. He is stoutly bunt and of strong- constitution; ; as appears from his portrait, he is smooth- shaven, and is often thought, to bear some resemblance to llr. JlcKinley. Some years since Judg-e Brown married Mrs. Pitts, the widow of a wealthy Detroit merchant. She is a society leader at home, and is likely to be in Washington. Their home is one of the finest, residences in the city, at the upper end of Jefferson avenue. There they have entertained elegantly, -and both are very popular at their home. 4 FATHER IS GETTING WELL He had such an awful cough. Doctor said he Had consumption And could not live long.
