Advice Wlilcli Will Intercut Frequenters of th« Urldle Path. Avoid the drives whenever possible. The ground is harder than in the bridle paths and your horse is more liable to slip. It stings your horse's feet to canter, or even trot fast, over a hard surface. Never spur your horse to make him "show ofl." Those who you think are admiring your horsemanship are undoubtedly jeering at you as a simpleton. Keeping your horse quiet, yet well up to the bit, bespeaks a steady hand, a firm seat, and, in fact, an accomplished rider. . Do not rush by a ladj r . Her horse grows excited at the rapid approach of another and is liable to bolt. If you cannot ride well without the aid of stirrups don't put on spurs. More casualties have resulted from spurs than any other cause. Your horse shies, you' lose your balance, your spurs prod his flanks, and, naturally, he runs away. Horse and rider both lose their heads and the chances are that you may both lose your lives. Unless it be .absolutely necessary never dismount in a park or on the road when accompanied by a lady. If there be anything amiss with her habit, saddle, or bridle the evil can be remedied just as well mounted. Should the lady's saddle have turned, that is, of course, another matter, and the best thing to do is to walk slowly until a policeman is met or a friendly stroller comes along, who will keep an eye to the horse while you work at the girths. Nothing is so awkward as "toes turned out. , Keep your elbows close to your sides. Increase or diminish pressure on the bit by movements of the wrist. You can not control a horse by physical strength. For morning rides wear a derby; in the afternoon a silk hat Leggings, sack or top coat, and derby are harmonious. Long trousers, cutaway coat, and silk hat are another combination. Let your horse know that a bicycle will not harm him. Permit him to stand quietly as the machine goes by, and meanwhile pat him on the neck or shoulder and speak to him kindly.— The Rider and Driver. Giiaranteed"Cure"for i,a Grippe.

Free samplesj at B. F. Keesling's (4) Brightness of tlie full Moon. How bright is the full moon, do you think? Suppose you look up at the moon on the next clear night. The sky is a pure, pale blue, and the moon is almost dazzling bright against it If the whole canopy of the sky were made up of full T^oons and if one were in tho center of such a shell one might think the glare would be intolerable. But let us see. This very same moon you have often seen in the day, time as a pale, white disk, just'barely visible against the background of the sky. That means that the daylight sky is not so very different in brilliancy 'from the full moon, or it means that you could very well live under a sky whose every part was just as bright as the moon itself. We say, then, that the bright- nes_s of the moon is not so very much greater than the brightness of the same area oi sky. The total light of the full moon can be compared with the total light of the sun, though it is very difficult problem, and the result will he that the sun is as bright as 080,000 full moons.—Chicago News. The Motto of Girl* Nowndivys. A poem entitlecf* "Working and Waiting" has been submitted to us for our opinion.. The author is in love, and is working and waiting for his bride, with hints at eloping. We do not think much of the poetry, and we think still less of the doctrine of the poem. Vfe never could sympathize very much with the idea of waiting -in such matters. The story of Jacob's waiting so long for Laban's daughter was always painful to us, though that was wiser than eloping. Even though he got her at last, just think of the precious years that were wasted! Young men, if you have got to work first, work hard, and you will not have to wait so long. Besides, "Now or never" is the motto of girls nowadays.—N. Y. Ledcer. O! the HUnery of It. Human wretchedness touches bottom in sea sickness. Life is held a feather's weigtit by the unfortunate afflicted with it. Why endure its atrocious internal convulsions when Hostetter's Stomach Bitters relieves them instanter? Not only relieves, but prevents. It is not always on the ••briny" that traveler's nausea is experienced. Railway journeying, riding with one's back to the horses or the locomotive sometimes produces it in super-sensitive stomachs. Hostetter's Stomach Bitters is always the prompt remedy. The mischievous properties ot brackish water, the evil influence of miasma, unwholesome or unaccustomed food, excessive fatigue, whether bodily or mental, the dyspeptic tendency bred by sedantary pursuits, the pernicious effects of exposure to extremes of temperature or dampness, all.these are effectually counteracted by this genial preservative of health. Cures also rheumatism, kidney and bilious trouble. to!3 Something New In Corn—Xew Kiln Dried'Corn Meal. • This process retains all the sweets and nutriments of the corn.
