Thoro Is a deal of drudgery, vexation, and hoartacbe that the people In .the front of the house little Imagine. Mury Anderson used to advise young •3taeo-struck girls to keep off the stage. The feverish excitement, the late hours, the drudgery of rehsareals, the unnatural stimulus from new audleooea, rivalry aid applause, make rfce life full of perils to health of mind .-and body. Too cnrolees thoater- :.-goln£ public havs no notion of the •airaln on tho nerves that is inaepara. ble from a dramatic career. But meabors of "the profession" "know what It is, and they have, as a body, learned bow best to keep their nervous system strong and capable of dolog tho hard work demanded of them. That is why Paino'a celery vcompound is so popular on the stage, Helen Barry, tho well known -notrees. writes to a physician friend, .from Tea Box Cottage, Bellfort: '•It ia with great pleasure I write to •toll you that I find Palne's celery oom. pound a splendid tonlo. I should like you to procure me a few more boltlea." Delta Fox, when "ruo down" from over-work, by the advice of tho wife 4)f a U. S. secator in Washington, tried Palne's celery compo cd. S e says: "My spirits picked up. and at the end of two weeks tha eame old exuberant health with which nature blessed me, returned. "I ale and slept as I had not doi.e since I was a child, and I have never known since then an hour's inconve nieiice from nervous prostration. "The medicine lo which I owes) much la Palne's celery compound, and I havo recommended it to all of my stage acquaintances who have over taxed their brains by too close attention lo study, and Ml havo experl o-ioed the Bamo happy results as myself." Mario Tempest also, and a host more of the most eminent artists who appear before the public, have recently testl- flod to the wonderful roiuvlgoraUn-r power of Palne's co'ery compound Their testimony is noteworthy because no class of women work harder or are under greater nervous strains. Women in every walk of life have reason to be grateful to Prof. Pheli s of Dartmouth, who discovered Palne's celery compound. He understood the peculiar weakness of the sex. He know that the backache, lassitude, headache sleeplessness, and lOrS of appetite all means that the supply of nervous force is low and Inadequate to the demands upon it. The expori- etca of thousands has taught the women of the country >hat only Palno's celery compound will give health to the nerves, and, through them, to the entire body. THE TURF. Arkm will not bo raced this year. He 3s.to make a full stud season. Directly Is surely tho champion ol -the month of January. Improved rec- •ords better than 2:OS are scarce these Tlmos. In case the legislature of Connecticut pusses a law which will permit of pool- EellnfT on race tracks, as Is now expected, a new mile trotting track, to cost over $100.000, Is to be built In New Haven, Conn. The owners of the mile track at Red Onk, Iowa, have secured the House Review Standard stakes of $10,000 and $5,000 each, for the June, 1S95, roecrln.-;-. 'The Iowa association was the highest ilaider among sevor.U.Entrlcs to close !£or the stakes March 1. Nearly all the western track owners appear to be following the lead of C. \V'. AVilllnms in opening- Btake races ofor tho trotting season of 1S93 on the forCelt-ontnuice-l'ee plan. Under this system owners of horses are not required to pay their entries, but arc .given credit until the day preceding'the race, when, it accounts are not settled, all deltr.puent debtors can be suspended from every prominent trotting track in America. The plan Is well known on •the running turf, but it has never found favor amonu trotting clubs until this year. The Duke ot Portland hns bought the great Australian race horse, Carbine for $65,000 in gold. He Is by Musket, out of Mersey, and has shown himself to be the greatest racer ever bred in Australia. His best performance on the track was nmde In a two mile race for the Melbourne Cup of 1S90, In which, with 1-15'b. up.hc defeated a Meld of thirty-eight horses, and won the event •In 3::sii. the fastest race record. Aa a two year old Carbine was purchased by Daniel O'Brien, the Antipodean turfman, who paid $4,000 In gold for him. Frank L. Noble, the well . known horseman and former owner of the noted stallion Alcryon, 20.5, died at his residence In Grand Rapids, Mich., re- -ceatly. ....•• Directly, in a time'trial at the track at Fresno, Cal.r Feb. 1, reduced his world's record for two year old trotters i to 2:07 1 /i, although the track was wet and slow j It Is announced that the half interest : recently purchased by Riley Grannon I In the racing stable of W. M. Wallace ' lias been resold to the latter at an ad• vance of $100, Grannon deciding that he did not care to be an owner. The Richmond (Va.) Riding .and Driving Association held a meeting rc- centiy, and decided to hold a race meet'• ing this spring, the week previously to \ the one at Baltimore, Md. Four races ' will take place each day.

THE GOVERNMENT MIGHT NOW TAKE A HAND. tpeod, Sul<s!nr.co, Size and Qoalltj- Can Never be Blended By tli« rre»ent Methods ot Ilrecdlnc—Austria Aloue Solved the Problem. T IS A LAMENT- able fact that American horses have lost their In- divldu a 11 t y and that many breeder s i n pursuing fads have departed from the paths of reason to such an extent that the average product of American studs Is below that of almost any other country that could be namod. It was a desire to excel in the breeding of the horse for general purposes which has caused the Austrian government to send commlsslunc-rs to this country to secure specimens of the trotting family. Austria already lias the finest horso in the- world for carriage, purposes, aud the standard is so high that visitors can scarcely distinguish between those kept f"r hin? and those owned by private individuals, the fjor- goousnc-ss of tin; fi'.r-riiiK-e alone being th<-' guide. For many years the Austrian government li.'i.s boon judiciously blending the most desirable strains of blood that can be fnund, and us a result ;.hc-y have a type that is Itod and desirable. The fifty mares and half doxen stallions purchased in this country within the last two months will be mated with the pick of the products of the Austrian stud, and those- that do not come up to expectations will be discarded. American faddists havu pursued their hobbles until they have horses that are horses only in name. The •Western product is heavy and coarse, leaden of foot, and so dull of comprehension that main strength is the chief requisite in handling them. The southerner, save where tho pacer is propagated, seems to take more kindly to the mule, and his horses are generally poor specimens indeed of a noble family. Kentucky, the home of many blue-blooded thoroughbreds and trotters, furnishes some splendid specimens of a breed of which everybody ia fond, but there are many monstrosities, and it is sad to say that in the main everything is sacrificed to speed, and where size, beauty and soundness are found as well as the very necessary adjunct of get-thorc-ativoness it Is often the result of accident, as little care has been taken in the mating or the blending- of families that would be desirable. The thoroughbred race horse in his perfection is big enough to log with, to plough with, or to haul the grist to mill. He should be 3(i hands or more in height, and given a blooded horse of that stature, with the hard, fine, dense bone of that breed, he will put a dozen JIAYDEN EDWARDS. dunghills into their graves. No soft- porous-boned Clydesdale will live half a season by his side, and it Is to tho thoroughbred horse that this country must ultimately look for its type. By carefully mating selected thoroughbred sires with the common mare, it would not take many generations to make the breed uniform. It was said somo time ago that one of the objects of the Jockey club would be the farm- Ing of thoroughbred stallions of the proper kind, thus giving the general public an opportunity to establish a breed of horses that would have size, enough and quality enough for any purpose. It took the Canadian farmer some time to learn on which side his bread was buttered, although he had as early as 1SGO a type to follow. The English soldiers brought many thoroughbreds to Canada, and the benefit of the blood Imported then is apparent In some localities to this day, although for some years there was danger of the type being entirely destroyed through injudicious importation of the Clvdes- P AINT cracks.—It often costs more to prepare z house for repainting that has I.-::;: painted in the first place with ciK"!;- ready-mixed paints, than it \v<rv' to have painted it twice with s!:v:'.- ly pure white lead, ground in pu.'L linseed oil Strictly Pure White Lead forms a permanent base for rcpr.:"'.- ing and never has to be burne;', •:.: scraped off" on account of sec.!::'' or cracking.

The (Jay of U»« heavy horse has passed, however, and the horse that brings the money novra- days Is the cross of the thoroughbred, sire and the common mare. The Clydesdale or Percheron mares can b<i utilized to advantage, as experience has demonstrated that some o£ the best hish jumpers, hunters and harness horses that have been placed on tho New York market ia the last few years have been the result of that method ot breeding. Thousands of horses are shipped monthly from Ontario to Ens- land and to America, and tho supply, will in the immediate future fail to come up to the demand. In the opinion of some experts there should be something done by the American Government to establish a breed that would come somewhere near the Austrian standard. The trotter does not always have size, and many trotters need artificial appliances to bring out speed. i^'hat Is wanted is the horse that will bend his knee naturally, possess pual- Jt-y, size and substance, and, best of all, have enough speed to make him, when necessary,a train catcher. If the Jockey Club would cooperate with the farmers of adjacent States and send them some o£ the broken-down stallions that have the necessary fiualilications, in time— and in a short time at that—the benefits would be seen in the streets. A preat many persons have an idea, that the thoroughbred is fragile, and that he has not sullicient size and bone for the heavier tasks that have to be performed by his coarser relative. Two illustrations are given to disprove this theory. Haydi.-n Edwards, a son of imported Prince Charlie and Nannie Boy, by Glenelg, is one of the largest thoroughbreds in the world. He is owned by John E. McDonald of New York, and while he never raced, It was known before he met with an accident in a railway collision that lie was a race horse of the highest class. In the stud lie bred many winners. Including; Potentate, Oneida, Fusilleer, and Midgley. Ho stands nearly seventeen hands hiy-h and weighs almost 1,-iOO pounds. A glance at the immense shoulders, short, powerful back, and tremendous quarters will convince any horseman or student of the horse that lie is big enough to be put to any use for which the horse is intended. In addition lie has a world of quality, not as much, perhaps, as Hanover, one of the greatest of race horses, now owned at McGrathiana Stud, but enough to warrant his selection as aj type of the horse that we should try to produce. Horses with the finish possessed by Hanover are seldom seen, and It is doubtful whether his head and neck are not the finest to be found throughout the length and breadth of the hind. What would a pair of slxteen-hand carriage horses as beautifully topped as Hanover, capable of trotting a mile In three minutes, be worth? Just as much as any man would care to pay for such horses, and half breeds have been sold In New York for as much as $5,000. Of course, ?5,000 Is an extravagant figure, and only men of means, with money to gratify every taste, can afford to pay such a sum. The United States must look well to HAXOVEB. their laurels if they want to keep pace with Canada, There are half a dozen thoroughbred stallions in the stud in Canada to one In this country. C. F. RIPLET. THE GREAT PLAIN OF CHINA. Wlmt tlio Vlnltor May Kind to Intoro«t Himself '1'lii^re. To imag-inc ;i Chinese city you must try to fancy both city and country walled in together; dense city and green fields and proves side by side within a loti<r, pray, baUlemented wall. You must faucy the inclosure dissected "by canals as well as streets. and the streets must be pictured as onlv from five to nine feet wide, so that the awesome crowds in the principal thoroughfares are as the crowds on Broadway would be if all the people were assembled on one Bi-oudway sidewalk. As there are no carriage roads there are no carriages. The rich men ride in Sedan chairs, hiprh above your head, on poles laid on the shoulders of coolies, the ordinary folk riJe on wheelbarrows, if at all, and nearly everybody walks. The travel outside the cities is by boat, Ihevefore there is nearly always a g-ood-sized city at each point where a waterway joins the moat that surrounds tlie wall. The jam, the awful crush, at one of these gate cities (i£ it is beside a lar^e city) is beyond description. Boats are there- as thick as cut, trees on a' lofrsrinR- stream. Junks, flats, chop boats, express boats, kickaway boats, sampans, and flower boats all lie in a seemrag-ly endless huddle, with just a narrow, shifting- thread of a passage through the mass. The shout- inff, the clatter, the din of yelling-.-distract attention from the delicate steering- your men must do to work their way throug-h the mass. In the thick of the flotilla are seen floating- houses and shops, whereon men, -women and children are at work, or are sleeping- or eating-. There are floating- shops for the sale of fish and baskets of vegetables, rice, nuts—-ev-. erything-. There are the famous flower boats, all gilt and satin behind their carved exteriors, with their showing of painted and powdered«girls and divans and drink and pipes. The population is like that of Suffolk street, like that of an ant hill, or the hold of an emigrant steamer. Orer the tops of the boats on one side are seen the city walL, and its edging of. prass dotted with, huts of mud and bamboo, and with grave* that roughen the surface .ukevthe mounds of prairie dosrs. On the other side are the shops of'the outer city, and all open to the water-way, at the tops of stone stair- wars, given over to crowds of men, eating, drinking- tea, shopping-, selling-, buying, idling- or rushing about ]"f you enter such a city by a waterway through an arched gate in the wall you may see many pleasure craft, called "play-pidgin boats," of glass aud lacquer and gilt, work, and wherever there is a stone bridge will be seen a street—of dead walls of dwellings that show no windows or of long rows of shops. These shop* are either wholly open, or disclose a little fanciful railing ending with a carved lion's head to"separate the public from the shoppers. The shopping streets are best worth a visit. Every shop has its signs hutig across the street or perpendicularly before it. The number of shops for the sale of seals, made of wood or white metal, brass or jade-stone, surprises a stranger. The impress of a seal is us important there as a written signature is here. The number of teashops, which correspond to our barrooms, is also prodigious, but they show nothing but tables and chairs and barbers at work while the customers drink. The display of vegetables is gaudy, and the cooking ot" eakcs almost perfumes entire cities. lu the stores for the sale of silks or clothing, or cotton goods, one sees the stock on shelves, but ia most shops very little is displayed. Customers must ask for what they want. And uio worst goods are always shown first- cither bi-causii they bring the greater profit or because it is desired to got rid. of thorn. One oisods patience to got at what a merchant has to sell. Sometimes he shows his best stock- only after many visits to his shop. The jewelry stores are splendid repositories of beautiful things, but the best one 1 saw in China displayed nothing but a counter aud a few score boxes. There are almost as many places for selling Ornaments for women's hair as there are seal shops. Tho fan-tan shops aud lantern shops are as strange to the eye as they are attractive. In the shops the merchants generally keep themselves in the background, beside an ink slab and brush or a cup of steaming tea. The clerks do the work, as you see when you notice the long curlcd-up Cuger nails of the master and the heavy jade-stone ring upon his rijjit thumb. Thns men cripple their right hands to give proof that they do not need to work. It is fun to loiter in a drug store and to watch the making up o! prescriptions, for they are apt to call for dead beetles, dried snakes, toads stretched on frames, eyes of insects, aud everything that can be suggested by tho ignorance of the raost backward profession in China.—Harper's Weekly. Milk fur Unities. If care is taken in procuring pure milk from a healthy cow it will answer every purpose—provided the milk is kept clean and free from germs. Many careful housekeepers cannot realize how very great must be the care exercised with milk. It should never be allowed to stand uncovered, and should never be used unboiled. Dr. A. Jacobi, a. recognized authority, in a recent article says, "after having been boiled, the milk destined for the use of a baby during the day ought to be kept in clean bottles, containing from liireu to six ounces, up to the cork, and the bottles turned upside down a.nd preserved in a cold plaoe. Such a bottle will keep longer than milk preserved in the usual way. liefore being used, itought to be heated in a water bath. By repeating this heating -of Uio whole amount of the day's milk several times during the twenty-four hours, fermentation will be retarded, and digestibility improved."—Womankind. Mixed Farmlnir In Dry .-SitiMOiu. It seems to me that such seasons as we have had for three successive years emphasize the value of mixed farming. I know that there are men who succeed best as specialists, but they are usually men of superior qualities, who would succeed at almost anything; but the average farmer, with a farm not specially adapted to somo particular product, will generally lind it safer to grow a little of several things. This has always been my rule, and in the worst years I have abundant supplies for the family of almost everything needed, and when I sell the surplus and foot up the araoun,ts, 1 have a fair showing. This plan is especially safe for the farmer who is out of debt anil does not DCCU to get a large sum of money at once to payout, so much as to have a moderate amount of money come in often to meet expenses. —Colman's Rural World.
