Every Wlilch Well-to-D- o Farmer litnll E ijoy. It is a remarkable fact that while farmers are encouraged in all sorts of extravagances by agricultural journals and societies in stocking their farms with thoroughbred cattle, sheep, swine and poultry. th?y are warned aga nst thoroughbred horses, notably fast trotters, with the same earnestness as against any moral pest lence. A horse that cm trot a mile under a 2:40 gait is considered the rightful property oti professional gamblers and an adjunct to all sorts of wickedness. Ihe arguments against fast trotters are many, but the one most often urged is to the efiect that a fast horse makes a fast man n the co rupt sense of the In a word, the op'nim term prevails that the farmer and h's sons, so soon as th y posses i a hore of proud ped gree, w th promise ot great speed, are imuied ately transferred from upright honest t Hers of the sod to jockeys and gamblers, with no interest outside of the turf. Ano: her plea aga nst liuo roa.lsters on the farm is that there s mure risk and less money to the tarmer in the rearing and training of trotters than n the production of general purpose and draft horses remarkable for size and' strength. That there is a demand, at remunerative prices, for heavy horses, no one disputes nor. is it doubted that horses of rercheronvor Clydesda'e origin are valuable animals on any farm, but just why the e facts sho dd debar line road sters a place alung wit other improvements in these progressive t'nie doe not seem qui o clear.

With it comes a weary and broken down sensation of inability to rive full atten'ion to business. All this Mr Howard suffered, with lack of appetite, loss of flesh, and the other symptoms which with un pleasant piamness ten tne story of dvspepsia. said Mr. Howard "I was very to one or our correspondents who visited him at his cozy cottage at Stafford Springs. " My wife was greatly concerned about me. I had taken advice and medicine from the regular jjiijBiuioiin, uui wiiu very lime advantage. Some friends of my wife had taken Compound Oxygen, and had sent her circulars and pamphlets about it. She was much interested in what she read or it, and said she thought this was what 1 needed. While she was away from home for two or three weeks I sent for a 'Treatment.' You may judge of the effect of the Oxygen on me when I tell you that, although 1 had not told my wife I had got it, she noticed from the character of the letters I wrote her that I was in better spirits, and consequently in improved health." !Had the Compound Oxygen then so soon begun its good work on you i "Yes; it did its work much more quickly than I had any reason to expect. I was sur- although I anticipated good results, Frised. for not supposed they would be felt so quickly. Within a week I was so much better thut I was going to put the Oxygen away and take no more of it. But I concluded that it would be better to keep on with it for a while. I did for few weeks and was so completely restored to health that I had no further need for any remedy. That was three years ago. Since that I have never been without Compound Oxygen in the house, aud I do not intend to be without it at any time." "Then you have had to resort to it pretty much all the time?" "By no means ; only occasionally, when I have had a cold or something of that kind. But my wife has used it and derived great benefit trom it. and so have the children. "I believe my wife would have been dead hut for Compound Oxygen. Her lungs troubled her. The pain wus very severe, particularly in the left lung. The syptoms were those of incipient consumption. Both last winter and winter before she took Compound Oxygen through nearly all the cold weather and with the most remarkable effect. It strengthened her, removed the lung-paiand generally and particularly built up her health. "As for the children : my boy is eight years old. He has grown up quickly and is half a head taller than most other boys of his age. He has taken Compound Oxygen for colds and as a tonic and strengthener. Nothing has ever served hint better. We have the utmost confidence in it for him. Baby is six months old, and has learned to inhale like a grown person. She had a cold with catarrhal syptoms, and was entirely relivved and cured with Compound Oxygen. I may add that I myself am naturally disposed to catarrh. Since I have used this Oxygen, which is now about three years, the catarrhal troubles have not annoyed me"Three or four weeks ago I was suddenly taken down with quinsy. Compound Oxygen had done to much for me in other respects that I tried it for this. 1 took it pretty hot, putting the tube well down my throat so as to reach the sore and swollen parts.
