Mrs. Sarah Pike. 47? Broadway, South Boston, writes :
"I am seventy years old, and had not enjoyed good health
for twentj years. I was sick in different ways. Hnd in
addition, hail Kczema terribly on one of my legs. The
doctor said that on account of my age, I would never be

completely, and I am happy to say that
I feel as well as I ever did in my life."
Mr ,f, W. Loving, of Colquitt, Oa., says: " For eight

Perhaps the most interesting railroad
in Pennsylvania is the Kishcoquillsui
valley, which runs from JJeedville to
Belleville, a distance of nine miles,
says the Pittsburgh Post it baa con
nection with the Pennsylvania on the
Lewiston division and docs a good busi
ness. Jts equipment consists, accord
ing to official statement, of two engines
und four ears. Only one of the locomo
tives is in use steadily, however, und
when it is in the roundhouse the resi
dents of the town know that no trains
are on the road.
The general manager and purchasing
agent is J, P. (letter, u physician of
Belleville, His wife, Clara W. (letter,
is treasurer of the line. The engineer
of the locomotive in use is master me
chanic, superintendent of motive pow
er and several other things as well, and
it is said of him that he has an easy
time of it unless something happens to
break, when he has to work all night,
ii need be, in repairing the damage.
Special trains are frequently run over
the line by fishing- parties to some of
the trout streams along the route. The
"trains" arc handcars, borrowed for
the time being, and operated by section
hands, The principal traffic over the
road tomes from an extensive canning
estabBshment at one of the stations.

In all lines of live stock husbandry
cleanliness is the one great demand.
The war Bgaiust dirt and hence against
bacteria and vermin is a war that will
know no cm!. Let no man suppose
thai he can cleanse his house and" pens
and trust them to keep clean. The bat
tle roust be fought over and over again
and the successful poultrymau is t fie
determined fighter. The flrat campaign
must be made against lice and mites.
Whitewashing the pens is supposed to
lie a great remedy, and without doBbt
it is a good one. but it Is possible for
the pens to be kept clear of lice with
out the use of lime. We realize the"
fact that whitewashing has its disad
vantages. Not only does the pen soon
iret to looking very dirty inside, on ac
count of all dirt showing on the while
background, but very often the pens
become a nuisance Id that one cannot
etep inside them without having the
marks remain on his clothes. There
are washes that may be used und be
quite effective a.s lime. The man that
has a sprayer can use it easily in his
chicken house and thoroughly wet a"!
exposed surfaces All cracks should !e
obliterated, und this is not a hard thing
to do if the poultry raiser has a prop
erly built house. Dtil whether Nme or
something else be used the work must
be carefully followed up. It is even
best to repeat the labor frequently,
even if there be no signs of the Httlo
monsters. Their very minuteness is a
tremendous advantage given them by
nature, and an advantage that lavs
upon us the necessity of eternal war
fare. Farmers' Review,
