Six bottles restored me to health ! am better than for years in fact am entirely relieved. I can say with a clear conscience that it was Dr. Miles' Restorative Nervine that restored me to health.

I have recommended Dr. Miles' Remedies to many people."Fred Myers, Redfield, S. D.

After the father's death it was found that he had cut off Cornelius with $500,- 000 in cash and a trust fund of. $1,000,000, while to Alfred Gwynne, the second son, was given nearly $50,000,000.

Copper has been almost altogether discarded by housewives as a material for cooking utensils, owlngr to its faculty for accumulating verdigris and the necessity for the most conscientious daily scourings. As a matter 6t fact, however, copper is very durable, and is the-,b*est conductor of "heat of all materials which it competes with in this line. It is, therefore, used to a great extent in hotel kitchens, where the best is always found to be the cheapest, and where economappf tlm# and fuel must be carefully rp^kqned A?P- -Copper is now so abundant -in -'Atritertca' that it has become quite**-cheap, n d is rasomewhat more in favor than it was some little time ago on that account There Is an objection to it, perhaps, in the matter of weight, but it outwears any number of granite or tin utensils. To remove dirt spots from carpets, make suds of a good white soap and watei until a thin cream, place a brush In this mixture and brush the carpet with this, then wash with a sponge and cold water and rub dry with cloths. To remove lead pencil marks on wood rub with an Ink eraser. To keep the dining room table in good condition rub it hard once a month with a soft flannel moistened with paraffin oil and turpentine, then with a piece of soft, old linen. It would not hurt to give it a daily rubbing with chamois. If there are white spots on the table they can be removed with kerosene. If they are very deep rub gently -and quickly with linseed oil and powdered rottenstone. Salt will cure catarrh if used persistently.

Prepaie more clay and plaster it on, commencing at the bottom, then beat it thoroly with a short-handled wooden mallet or back of a spade. The clay should be quite six inches thick, be very pure and without stones, and laid on several inches higher than the water is likely to reach, and the surface soil should be pressed down to the top of the clay, or it will get dry and crack away from the bank. Be - fore filling in the water, cover the bottom with rich loamsay six inches deep in the center and carried up to the sidesfor making a nice root bed.

AttUATIC PLANTS Practical Way of Making a PondGood Water Supply Is Indis- pensable. London Telegraph. The following instructions are offered to those possessing a garden in which a place for hardy aquatics seems feasible: In the lowest part of the ground dig out the soil to a depth sloping from one foot at the sides to three feet in the center, in any shape that is preferred. Then make it hold water, for which purpose there is nothing better than clay, which will require preparing. Take, say, a barrow load and chop it up with a spade if rathei dry, water it, and work it- well until it reaches the consistency- of dough Spread this six inches thick over the surface, and make as many more barrow loads as are needed, then set your man to tread all over it with his naked feet, and also use a rammer. If the clay is well rammed down the bottom of that pond will never leak. Now, as to the sides.

A piece of masonry representing a suitable subject often adorns the -center of the water, and sometimes is used as a fountain a few goldfish are also an em - bellishment, but none of the feathered tribe is admissible. Aquatic plants vary considerably in their habits, some havlrg a preference for deep water, others for shallow, while some will float on the surface, some, again, are grown in pots which are placed in an inch or two of water. Those preferring a deep root bed, like water lilies, are generally planted firmly in small wicker baskets, the roots surrounded by ,soil, with moss strung around to keep the "bunch together. The whole is then dropped to the bottom. In the case of these lilies it is not material if the growth is below the surface at first, as it will soon find its way up The water violet (hottonia) has both its roots and leaves floating, so it merely requiresj to be laid in the water. In fountain basins single plants of many species may be cultivated in fancy vases and rugtic pots placed in the water, which should be changed occasionally if not constantly running, or it will become cbvered with water mosses or duckweed. The difficulty, however, may be got over in an - other wayby skimming or flooding these growths off If soil is put into the bottom it should consist of six inches of good rich loam, and covered with an inch of white stones sifted out of silver sand or oth^r pebbles This clean surfacing should be sprinkled in some days after planting.
