For coughs and colds Benson's Porous Plasters are an incomparably better remedy than any other—external or internal. Their medicinal properties enter the skin and go straight to the seat of the disease. They relieve and cure a "seated" cold -without disturbing the system or upsetting the stomach. Cough mixtures often nauseate. Benson's Plasters are medicinal in the highest degree, and quickest to act. Placed on tne chest or back or on both at once in serious cases, the good effect is ABOUT FAMILY TREE i Showing How the Coomers Came by. Theirs. None of the Coomers of the second generation was to blame in the least, and of course the third generation, consisting of Edith, Annabel and Tom, were equally innocent. On the whole, perhaps, nobody was to blame at all. Moreover, the Coomers were pleasant people, and it was only the envious among their acquaintances who said that they were puffed up with family pride. We may have family pride and not be puffed up with it, even though we have heirlooms and a family tree illuminated on vellum and framed and hung up in our library. It does not follow that a few dim and dark ancestors of *the colonial period in oil, a rapier and some embroidered waistcoats, and irons from the old homestead hearth, a tower musket and one or two miniatures on ivory will inspire their possessor with sentiments of exaggerated self esteem and corresponding contempt for the common herd who have' been so careless as to lose track or their forbears. Coomer was about as unassuming a-man as could be found anywhere. He was sure of his position by virtue of the family tree and other things aforesaid, and it did not seem to him necessary to try to impress society at large with his noble birth. He had a beau- , tiful coat of arms—a lion passant re- - gardant in bend gules between two acorns azure within as many cotiseS"' ermines—and his crest was a cubit arin ' erect grasping an oak-branch, all |>ro££ er,~but neithec. crept apr. cba%w. zoifett ton V the brougham—Nothing but a monogram. Mrs. Coomer felt differently about It and would have had the arms on the baby cart if she could have had. her. way. She put the crest on the coachman's buttons and on a seal ring which she gave to Tom on his eighteenth birthday, and if any of her visitors expressed any curiosity concerning the rapier or the dingy pictures or the tower musket she was always willing to tell all she knew about them. The two girls were proud of their blue blood in the same degree or even a little more so. Tom took it as a matter of course, just as his father did. One reason that Mrs. Coomer and the girls detested Crary was that he was always making slighting remarks about the family pedigree and escutcheon. He didn't mean any harm by it, but he had a reputation for jocularity and had to sustain it. Noticing that Mrs. Coomer winced one day when he spoke disrespectfully of one of the pictures, he thereafter prodded the tender spot on all possible occasions. If anybody was in the library for the first time and noticed the tree and the coat Crary would get up and look $t them through his eyeglasses as if he had never seen them beforV^ "What kind of a beast is that rubbernecking on the shield?" he would ask. "That's a lion." "Well, well! Who'd 'a' thought it! What ha4 he got his off front paw stretched out that way for? Looks as if he' had a cramp in it and was trying to restore the circulation." "Well, that shows his position—passant. He is also regardant, having his neck twisted in the manner you describe." "You are sure that you have got the animal sized up right? I don't see exactly what a lion would be doing with acorns. If they were coco&nuts, it might be all right, but as it is there -seems to be a discrepancy, as it were.

George Washington Wanted to make my ancestor, Putnam Gijary, a major general, but he said that he would waive his gentility and shoulder a musket in the ranks with thfe rest of the boys." ( Even Coomer is annoyed by this dig, add he flushes a little angrily, but the miniatures coming in give him an opportunity to treat the sneer with the sifent contempt it merits. That was the extent of Coomer's vainglory— just a little natural pride, free fr6m boastfulness — but at the same time nobody ever enjoyed any degree of intimacy with him without learning all about Digby Creighton Coomer, the reputed owner of the rapier, who was or? of the leaders of fashion in old New York; of Mistress Betty Coomer, hit daughter, who was the toast of her day; of the intermarriages with the Drivlngstons and the Van Bruntslears and other aristocratic families and all the rest of it. But nobody could reasonably object to that. Coomer was, however, perfectly sincere in saying that he had never paid attention to his genealogy. His father was in business in New York—a business that had something to do with hides—and he was wealthy for the period. When he liad asked any questions about the tree, Coomer senior had returned answers- that were of a general rather than a special character. Most of his information he had derived from his mother, who was then a brilliant figure in New York society. She died, however, when Coomer was about 12 years old. For these reasons Coom-erfwas hazy on the subject of his ancestry, for all his varied stock of general knowledge. Some of these days, h£?said, he was going to see what the ancestral domain at Salem looked like, bns he put off. doing so from time to tiiBe and contented himself with what additional scraps of information he could pick up in Chicago. At least he gQ| all that he needed in one lot. Coomer had been down in the rummaging, and she made a discovery. It was an old hair trunk of a type and pattern now quite extinct, asp her idea was to bring it up and set. it'iu the hall as an antique, which it undoubtedly was. She called Coomer ;d<lwn to look at it, and he recognized it Hngfantly. "It belonged to the old gen-an," he said. "I thought Brother iam got that. Strange that I Shouldn't have noticed it before! Have yof opened it?" es;" replied his wife, "but there is iftg in it but a lot of old books,-not enough to be valuable. They are :tiy botitks on divinity." eH,.' lo^el atapty thom puti Cp&mer, and he turned the old trunk upside down and spilled its contents on the floor. They were, as Mrs. Coomer had said, old books of divinity,, all but one, and that one was canvas and leather bound, like a ledger. Coomer picked it up and fluttered over the leaves.; ~ . "Hello!" be exclaimed. "There's a weakness I never suspected of him. He started to keep a diary. Yes, stained is the word. Here's the first date- Jan. ,1, 18C0. How long did he keep it up? Ha! Did pretty well too. April 17 is the last entry: 'Everything going on in the same old way. Nothing of importance happened.'" "Let me look," said Mrs. Coomer eagerly. "Nay, nay," answered Coomer. "There may be something here that only a son's eye should scan." He went over by the window with the book and, seating himself in a chair, began to skim through the book. It was written in a brief, concise style. But for all that the writer had evidently started in with the intention of setting everything down without reservation and with the frankness of a Pepys. Several times Coomer had to close the diary on his thumb and abandon himself to mirth, but at last he came t9 an entry that made him turn pale and utter an exclamation that brought his wife tp his side. It was as follows: "Feb. 8.—Bleeker positively refuses to consider the purchase of the shipload from Argentina, and I am likely to lose money on it. I think that I will get even with Mr. Bleeker. Araminta is still worrying because the Bybees have painted tlleir crest on their stanhope. I told her there wasn't any crest too good for her to have if she wanted it, but she only told me not to make a bigger fool of myself than I could help. Went round to Levy Moss' in aft. and bought an assortment of old truck—pictures, miniatures, etc. I think a bargain, for soihe of them didn't cost more than the canvas they were painted on, so the paint and the frame is net profit. I am going to tell Mme. Minty to use them for ancestors, and* I think she has got the courage to do it. Moss has got more old junk around. Among other things bought old musket and sword for a doUar and a half. I will go around and see Garter King tomorrow and have him look up a few crests and pedigrees. If he charges too much, J will claim close relationship with the Coombers of Hudson street, who are always bragging about their old family mansion at Salem. Think that will be the best plan, anyway. Hopte Mme. Minty will be satisfied, but when she married me she said that she didn't care if I didn't know who my grandfather was." That finished the entry? -Coomer looked at his wife, and she looked at him, bat neither spoke.

Economy is a very commendable virtue, but I, for one, don't believe in practising it to such an extent as to cause physical discomfort. One of the best of winter comforts is a good, warm fire, but what a lot of people deny themselves and shiver through a season for the sake of saving a few dollars—often for somebody else to waste after they are dead! Buying fuel is "burning up money" in their eyes, and they don't seem to measure up any benefit as received in return. In a good many communities you find most of the houses practically shut up in winter and the family living in two or three rooms at the back of the house, where the smell of pancakes lingers from one day's end to another, mingling with the steam from wet boots and rubbers. Probably there is one bedroom decently warm for "the old folks;" the children sleep in rooms where water in a pitcher would freeze solid over night, with the idea of "toughening them,"or*in those tempered a little by a stovepipe or the kitchen chimney. To dress properly in such apartments is impossible, so the hair is combed and the ablutions performed in the kitchen, where the cooking is going on. Such a thing as a hair in the hash is an inconsiderable trifle. Many a man who provides good, warm stables and blankets his stock, lets his children go off to bed in remote rooms, where they shiver till their teeth chatter, the one mitigation of their misery the flat-iron or the sand-bag they take along to thaw out , the frigid cotton sheets. that one wakes in the morning tired out with its weight. Such rooms, let me tell you, instead of "toughening", a child, are a positive drain on his vitality. I spent four of the most uncomfortable days of my life in the house of a woman whose favorite economy seemed to be fuel. There was one "chunk" in the dining-room stove, and I solemnly aver that that one piece of wood was still un-consumed when I went away. A tiny blue flame occasionally licked one side of it; it was charred a little in parts where kindling had been consumed against it, but for any warmth it imparted to the room it might as well have been fifty pounds of ice. There was never a moment when I could not have held my bare hand against the stove, and the thermometer showed almost zero weather. W^ien I got home again I built such fires that I almost set the house on fire; but how good the warmth did seem! I thought I was chilled to the very marrow of my bones. That was thirty years ago, when I was young and warm-blooded, too, and I never forgot it as being the most uncomfortable experience I ever had. I never wondered, afterward, that the Eskimo and Laplanders cannot conceive of the orthodox hades as a place of punishment. It answers to their conception of heaven, for it is warm! Every house in our climate ought to have a furnace. It adds but $100 to $150 to the cost, and it is a comfort that pays for itself a hundredfold every winter. It is'such a luxury to have all parts of the house warm enough to use in all sorts of weathers, so that one may get up and go to bed, eat and work without that horrible, shivery feeling that makes one feel so irritable. But a furnace is no good unless you feed it; and let me tell those that have one that to keep up a steady, even fire, without allowing it to die down and then burn up fiercely, is not only the most comfort-producing but the most economical policy. The same is true in managing a coal-stove. Next to a furnace a good, big coal heater is the greatest cold weather comfort. A large-sized one will heat three rooms comfortably except in extreme cold. If there are registers in the ceiling the sleeping rooms above will be comfortable by nights I don't recomn^end such registers, though many use them, for they convey the bad air as well as the warmth of the room below to the upper rooms. Care should be taken in ventilating them. But, do keep good fires, whether in furnace, heater or stove, through the winter and enjoy the Beason. To farmers it is the time of greatest leisure and opportunity. Warm, light rooms make one glad to read or study through the long evenings, whereas'in these homes, where they save coal and starve the soul, the body is glad to go to bed as soon as it gets dark under the table for the sake of getting warm yes, be economical, but don't be stingy or parsimonious. Let your economy be of a wise kind, and don't grudge a little expense wliere it secures comfort, health - XlMBNA. by EN Smith, driit m perbox. and con v< Another Napoleon of Finance.
