A printer stood at his case" one night,
(And a very hard case" was his'n),
And tlhe weary sight was dim as the light
Of the lamp in his dusty prison ;
The wintry winds were howling without,
And the snow falling thick and fast;
But the printer, I trow, shook his locks of
And I. r-ied at the fleeting blast;
He watched the clock as the hands crept
Keeping time with his snail-like tick,
As he gathered the type with a weary click,
In his old rust-eaten stick."

His hair was as white as the fallen snow-
And silently, (lay by day,
He beheld them with grief, like the Autumn
One by one passing away."
Time had cit with its plough furrows deep
-in his brow,
His cheek was fevered and thin,
And his long Roman" nose could almost
Its head on his grey-bearded chin ;
And with fingers long, as the hours stole on,
Keeping time with the clock's dull tick,
lie gathered the type with a weary click,
In his old rust-eaten "'stick."

For many long years, through joy, through
That old printer's time battered-face,"
Ghostly and lean, night and morn had been
Earn-t1ly bent o'er the chase."
In a few years more death will "lock up his
And put it to press" in the mould;"
And a stone" on the spot where they lay
him to rest
Will tell us his name, and how old-
And his comindes will light the old lamp by
the o" case.'
And list t,) the click's dull tick.
As they set up" his death with a solemn
In his old rust-eaten "'stick."

In the year 1819, a family of emi-
grants from New England established
themselves on an uninhabited prairie
near what was then the extreme bor-
ders of Western civilization. They con-
sisted of a husband and wife, the widowed
sister of the latter, and her infant child.
No neighbourly greeting awaited them,
for they were the only dwellers within
a circuit of ten miles; and the nearest
settlement was half a day's journey
distant. 'The widow was a lovely but
broken-spirited woman of twenty-two.
Since her husband's death, her affections
were centered in her babe. She had
been left in comfortable circumstances ;
in fact, her brother-in-law being a poor
man, the land they occupied, together
with the farming-stock and implements,
were purchased with her means.
A few months' labour sufficed to
give the family a comfortable home, and
to surround it with many signs of
commencing prosperity. Autumn had
passed, and they were looking forward
to a season of comparative ease and
enjoyment, when one day, Mr. lart-
well, as I shall call the head of the
household, found it necessary to visit

the nearest village, for the purpose of
procuring supplies. These, it was ar-
ranged, should be forwarded to him by
a passing vehicle, in the course of a
daj or two, as his own waggon had

broken down, and he was forced to
make the journey on horseback.
The w--atheilr, when he started, had
been slightly overcast, with a rising
wind from the north-east ; but none of the
family were prepared for the sight which
fthly ,u,',oinitt-d the morning after his
return. A lhr. fall of snow which
1.,egan h(n n:i. t before, had ii1cr:sd1
to such a degree that the drifting ma-
terial was piled almost to the eaves of
the cabin, and-already rendered impass-
able every road that led to it. They
were close prisoners, with no prospect
of, a speedy release, for the storm con-
tinued all day with the utmost fury. At
first, but little alarm was felt by the
blockaded inmates. Their wood-pile
was sheltered and easily accessible, and
the food on hand would suffice for three
or four days, at the end of which time
they had no doubt the purchased sup-
plies would reach them. They had
never heard of the terrific tempests which
sometimes, in that latitude, convert the
prairies into a howling ocean of snow
for weeks together.
The fifth di:i came and went, and
still the storm raged on. They were
now almost buried on all sides, and the'
cold had become intense. At length,
when they had been three days without
food, he who should have been their
protector to the end, began to throw
out hints which made the widow's flesh
creep, and heart sink like lead within
her bosom.
Next day, he spoke out more plainly.
One of them, he said, must be sacrificed
to save the rest, and that one must be
the youngest and most useless. The
wretched woman clasped her infant
more closely, and shrunk into the far-
therest corner of the room, as she heard
the threat, aind marked the hate. It was
charity to suppose that the man's brain
was disordered by his ti tring:-.; but
yet it was evident that this dire emer-
gency had also served to -bring into
open view 'i.- '..-' Lihng of i.iligi.nt
passions long and craftily concealed.
The widow had for some time suspected
that her brother-in-law regarded her-
self and her child with little warmth
of affection ; she knew him to be avari-
cious and unscrupulous ; but she had
not thought that the touchstone of ex-
treme calamity would reveal him to her
as a monster!
Now, however, in those wolfish eyes,
as ever and anon they glared upon her
carling-. she read, even before his lips
declared it, the fell purpose with which
the demons of'greed and famine joined
to inspire him. A single stroke, he de-
termined, should both avert the linger-
ing fate which every day brought near-
er, and sweep the main obstacle from
his path to ,competence ;, for the widow
was thought to be consumptive, and,
failing her offspring, his wife, her sister,
was her only heir. Mrs.. Hartwell had
already ei.-.uinled to privation and
anxiety. The widow and her unnatural
connection were thus left, as it seemed,
to be the sole actors in the hideous tra-
gedy which was shortly to ensue.
A another day passed.
By this time, Hartwell had consumed
what was left of his stock of liquors, and
was wrought into a state of half mania-
cal excitement. Seeing his opportunity,
while the widow was uneasily dozing,
with her child in her arms, he advanced,
knife in hand, towards them. Before
he reached them, she awoke,, and fled,
shrieking, with the babe into the ad-
joining room, where she flung herself
down beside her half-inanimate sister,
and called upon her wildly for protec-
tion. The object of the appeal was
roused to momentary consciousness,
She partially lifted herself, and motion-
ed to her husband, who hastily conceal-
ed his weapon, and slunk, as if awe-
struck, from the chamber. The widow
immediately rose, and, after fastening
the door, expended the remnant of. her
strength in piling against it some bulky
articles of furfilture. This done, she
sank fainting beside her sister, who had
relapsed into her former condition.
When she recovered the use of her
senses, night had come on, and all a-
round her was wrapt in darkness. The
single window in the room was directly
behind the bed, and opened upon a rude
piazza which sheltered that side of the
dwelling. After a short interval, the
widow became aware that some one out-
side was endeavoring to unfasten the
heavy ,wooden shutters. Incapable of
farther resistance, she could only lie in
breathless silence awaiting the result.
In a few moments the shutters were

flung apart, and her brother-in-law's,
body was protruded through the open-
ing, which was without sashes. His
arm was raised, and again the knife
hung suspended over the head of her
unconscious babe. The helpless wo-

man closed her eyes, and sent up a si-
lent prayer to that Power who once be-
fore had turned aside the fatal stroke.
At that moment, she heard from beneath
the window a low, hoarse growl, ming-
led with short, snarling yelps, as if from
a crowd of infuriated animals'. TI..-n a
shriek of mortal terror burst from the
lips of the v.w'l.1-!.e assassin ; his knife
dropped harmless beside the intended
victim ; he clutched for a few moments
frantically at the window-ledge, and
then disappeared, dragged down by
some resistless foe.
When the widow once more regained
consciousness, she found herself and
child in the hands of friends, by whom
their wants were tenderly supplied.
Within two hours :a1 t'er the events just
related, a party from the village had
succeeded in making- their way to the
solitary cabin. Mr's Hartwell was al-
ready dead. Her sister was at first
supposed to be beyond hope of recovery,
but by care and skill her' restoration
was effected.
A few rods from the clearing, the
body of Hartwell was discovered, al-
most devoured by wolves, who had been
emboldened by famine to surround the
The mother lived to see her babe,
thus [[i;aigily rescued, grown to vigor-
ous manhood.

THURSDAY, 1.6TH AuGusT, 1883.--On

The Attorney General moved that a,
message be sent to His Excellency the

pleased to obtain a plan for the im-
provement of the exterior of the Ses-

and the rule further suspended, it was
read a third time and passed
The following message from His Ex-
cellency the, Governor :-
(No. 4)
Governor and Commandkr-in-Chief.
The Governor deems it his duty to
call the attention of the Legislature to
a question which has on several occa-
sions engaged its attention, namely, the
site of the intended new Gaol. Since
that subject was last before the Legisla.-
ture in 1879, it has been ascertained that
the site decided on in that year cannot
be obtained except at. a very heavy cost,
and the Governor therefore thiin:s it
right to offer the Legislature an oppor-
tunity of reconsidering the decision then
arrived at.
By Act No. 14 of 'IT7', Session I., it
was provided ti:st. the Governor should
select for the purposes of erecting a Gaol
thereon such land and premises contig-
uous or near to the Gaol Lots as should
be deemed necessary or expedient there-
for: whilst by Act No. 20, Session II of
I.-S0-lSS1, further powers were given to
the Exeeutive with a view of facilitating
the acquisition of such properties, and
the Board of Puli,'- Works was author-
ized to proceed with the erection of the
new Pol! :ii,-'. in accordance with. the
plan which had been laid before the Le-
gislature, and .:- ith the alterations there-
in recommended by the Secretary of
State for the Colonies.

On his arrival here last year the Gov-
ernor was advse. that the cai rx in" out
of the provisions of these ena'timentil
had been delayed by the very high price
demanded by the owners of those pro-
perties, which it had been decided were

necessary for the purposes of the new
Gaol. Bii.ils the sum of 578 already
expended on the purchase of a part of
the intended site, upwards-of 2,000 are
demanded for, the two other lots which
must be obtained, adjacent to, the pre-
sent Gaol premises.
The Goverinor lhvi;.i ilh:-.f. '-diti.ltlies
in view, ad(ld.1r,-.,l he Secretary of Slate
for the C,,:'ii, and the Minist r for
War, in order to ascertain whether the
War Department would be' disposed to
transfer to the C::lony a lot of land in
the neighborhood of Fort Hamilton,
which seemed most suitable for the erec-
tion of the new Gaol: and an' answer
has lately been received from Her Ma-
jesty's Government to the effect that
such land could be by the
Colony on the payment .t '.* 8s. Od ;
and on condition that the F'1i.iing.;- be
so constructed as to aid in the defence
of the position, and that the plans be
approved by the Inspector Generalt of
F ,:,rlifi -:i ni,,'4
The Governor has every reason to be-
lieve thet these conditions can be car-
ried out without difficulty, and unat-
tended by any great expense. The a;
mount requisite for forming the walls,
etcetera, so as to, satisfy the' require-
ments of the War Office may be, esti-
mated at not more than one hundred
and fifty pounds over and above the
prime cos, of the works, which would'
have to be met in whatever po.,iiion the:
Gaol might be' erect ed.
To carry out the plan on the pir'.;eunt
site, and to render the prison se-
cure, very high and unsightly walls
would have to be built, and even them
the owners of property adjacent thereto'
would have it in their power to build
against these walls, a circumstance
which must materially diminish the se-
curity of the -a,-.! and facilitate ingress
and egr.-ess to, and from- .he- prion.,
A position in the vcri'; centre of th i
l own, and in close proximity to the
principal Public Buildings and to pri-
vate dwelling houses would seem to be-
most undesirable for the erection of a.
p'ri-oii, and its- removal to ai little dis--
iancue from Hamilton would carry with;
it many advantages; The value of the,
property surrounding and adjacent to'
the present Gaol would improve great-
ly; the heavy expenditure necessary for
the purchase of the, requisite lots would
not have to be incurred.; and the great-
er portion of the present site eould be
disposed of for its, full value ;. sufficient
land being E'-taimi'x for the erection of
a suitable Magistrates' Office, Police
Station and Lock Up, where prisoners
could be kept in safe custody during the
sittings-of the Court.
Should the, present site be adhered toi
the sum,-of money invested for the pur-
poses of the Gaol would be insufficient
to cover the purchase money of the
neighboring lots, and the cost of the
new Buildings: and the Le5isdlaurme
would find itself called upon, to provide
a further and no inconsiderable amount-
before the- plans could be carried out.
On a tl: other hand by adopting the
allernial iv, prpr.:sal this heavy expendi-
ture would be avoided, a considerable
amount would' be riilizcd on the sale of
the present lots, and it is estimated that
the Public Chest would actually be in
funds aft r thlie cost of the new Building'
and its site had been provided for.
On these grounds the. Governor in-
vites the House to consider whether it
is or is, not advisable so to amend the,
law as to admit o'f a more spacious and
in many respects a more eligible site be-
ing obtained for the new gaol than that,
specified in. the Act of 1879.
Public Buildings,. 16th Aug., 1.3.
The A4ic. ucy General moved that a
message be sent to His Excellency the
Governor to request that His Excellency
will be pleased to obtain and lay before
this ]..'us.-' a plan for a new Publico
Library building to be erected on the
land contiguous to the Public Ouhtes-
which was agreed to and ordered ac-
The Attorney General introduced a

It would be judicious on the part of
the legislature were they to give a
practical utility to the immense piles
of stones and bricks which lie de-
te'; under the weather, in the
vicinity, ofp'P.irliviment House. It
appears that some few years flgi
grants of money were voted for the
co.Istru.ition of th1 new prison and al-
so a town (1,. 1 tower, The n,:,-iti
we refer to was subsequently procur-
ci, and for some tini.' .:v,'.' thing
seemed to work like a chirm. ,but ere
long the-:p 11 wa's broken and nOtlihing
fuirthier has since 1bcou attimptt,1-',l, to
carry out and accomplish the (i-' u.
,.Nv,'that times are dull and money
scarce it would be a sort of clnistian
virtue in the men of authority were
they to give immediate utility to the
material and < mplyeicnit to at least a
portion of the working public. De-
lays are said to be dangerous, and the
greatest in this case is that if
the matter is postponed much longer
there will be no money left in the
Treasury for construction purposes.
Although no friend to horse-races,
.still we are glad to hear that steps are
being taken to make a race course
around the Governor's Pond. Its
.chief utility will be in furnishing a
Public Riding Course, something that
will be amply enjoyable by our Amer-
ican friends who come down to Ber-
muda to winter ; and further, the very
construction of it will afford employ-
ment to men and horses for some
time, and materially assist quite a
number of persons who are in need of
labor money, Public Works denote
a country's progress! Why not more
of them inBermuda? Another ten
years will effect a startling change.
NoTa.-Since writing the above we
have noticed that the Legislature has
taken steps for the erection of a Clock
Tower, Jail, and Public Library Hall.
This is a good move, provided the cost
is not too exorbitant, Public Works
of this sort will give : ~i'''ay:!jent and
:. .ep the money in the place.
The Governor 5f i1,.:'.:,,-c-, in Li?1
speech at the opening of Parliment re-
frf -.-. io t r T) rnn i.(. n f )low*.
-"The principal enactment r.latesto
the Franchise. It is a liberal measure,
and I trust it will be adopted, I have
no fear that a-.:v electoral privileges
you may bestow will be abused. To im-
agine that any ill effects are likely to
arise from a considerable increase to the
electoral .roll is to doubt the good sense,
loyalty and patriotism of a large section
of the community."
"Small owners of freehold property,
as well as tenants and those who have
raised themselves to positions of trust,
have as great an interest in the stability
of property and in orderly government,
generally, as their richer brethren,
"By lowering the Franchise verti-
cally and extending it laterly, so as to
include additional owners of property,
and the matured intelligence of all
classes in the idiol, you will create a
more perfect representation system than'
you now possess.
Whilst a generous extension of the
Franchise will revive tlie somewhat
flagging interest in matters political
which it now obtains, it will also tend
to the maintenance, on a wider, and
therefore, necessarily stronger basis of
your time honored constitution."
This is sound and sensible talk ; and
the application could be very benefi-
cially rendered pracally pally to Bermuda,
where the Franchise embraces com-
paratively so few, that the members of
the Legislative Assembly cannot vir-
tually be said to be the Representatives
of "' The People.)'
It is announced that certain Turkish
Coi-ninissionr-rs appointed to investigate
the question of Avalanches.on Mount
Ararat, suddenly came upon a gigantic
structure which has subsequently been
discovered to be that of Noah's Ark.
They effei.ted an entrance; but could
only examine three apartments as the
others were filled with ice,

Well, if true, this is certainly a most
wonderful discovery, and something in
reality that will settle some of the dis-
puted points, regarding dimensions, &c.
No nation however uncivilized has
not been discovered yet that is without
some legendary or historic record of a
"big flood long ago" by which one
family of their ancestors were saved,
The Indians of .North America, for
instance assert that one of their great
forefathers with his family had been
.saved from a big flood" by a wooden
Canoe he had hewn out with a stone
All this sort of random legends, how-
ever w',rped they may be. serve to
corroborate the Iible history of the
great Deluge and. Noah's Ark.
If the discovery is a reality there is
no doubt that before one year has ex-
.pired the gr-at Ark will have become
one of the greatest curiosities in Bar-
iumn's IM1ieum : a greater curiosity in
facL then the People's Steamer,"

C'on tinted.
Before bidding a final farewell to the
Caycos, I will briefly refer to one more
important place, namely, the island
known as Breezy Point," on the north
shore, a few miles direct across from
East Harbor. To the westward is a
settlement called Lorimer's, which I had
not spare time to visit. A son of Mr.
Horatio Stubbs, of Grand Turk- who is
a large salt manufacturer and dealer at
East IHarbor-has gone very largely in-
to the cultivation of the cocoa, gave
and ot(.'er plants, several thousands of
which he has ...'. i,,-hi luxuriantly on his
estate in te, -, ii: of Lorimer's. The
estate of Breezy Point is about twenty-
eight miles from Grand ,-i-k, is from,
fifteen to eighteen miles in length and
,.in seven to ten in width, containing
an area of S2,3'.0 acres of land. Ever

It Hr, ne'.'iU c."so.- lly 11 1,a-ture tar,,,.
In former times many of th.: cattle be-
came wild and had to be captured by
the rifle. lIiH. valuable property was
purchased by xf*,. J. W. Reynolds, mer-
chant of Grand Turk, about ten years
ago. At that time few cattle were on
the place, but ?.I'. Reynolds has since
increased the number to about 800.
There are several enclosures, with high
stone walls, so that the different sorts or
classes may be kept apart or otherwise
arranged when necessary, Each part
contains a fresh water well, with copi-
ous supply. A considerable portion of
the land is hilly ; but on the north is a
beautiful level Savanah, about six miles
long by four wide, covered with rich
grass, on which the herds luxuriate and
over which they roam .Ii i;',' and free.
Numbers of wild hogs roam at large,
and in the proper seasons wild ducks,
pigeons, plovers, flamingos and other
fowl afford rich and ample game for
The air is pure and -xhile,'r:d.,j' cool
at nights, and during the day blows
constantly in a strong breeze, which ren-
ders Breezy Point a very suitable resort
for invalids.
About two years ago a very valuable
discovery was accidentally made, in the
shape of hill caves, in which were found
deposits of guano, which by analysis
were found to be a very rich fertilizer.
Such an enterprising-spirited man as
Mr. Reynolds could not remain 5',ng at
rest. He set immediately to work to
practically test the treasure, and subse-
.quently, in pia : .hi1p with two oi three
American gentlemen a company was
formed of whid Mr. Reynolds was the
chief manager. Preliminary pr,.p.(r:-
tions for shipment were made by the
blasting out a channel through the reefs
near the shore, and the building of a

pier, from which a tramway, 350 feet
long, leads 'to the first cave; besides
storehouses, etc., all of which have cost
several thousands of dollars. The gua-
no is of a brown color, and is found in
layers in the caves. It is carried to the
urftface in bags, giving employment to
250 persons. Up to April last some 500
tons had already been shipped to the
States. :Since then a steamer of 1200
tons has been constantly employed con-
veying the guano to Baltimore, where it
is ground, barreled and shipped to ev-
ery part of the Union. Mr. Reynolds
has already ensured himself a large
Mr. WV. H. Whitney, who has been
fifteen years in his employ as chief book-
keeper, was, in Bermuda recently, visit-
ing his numerous friends.
In the caves several fossils of an an-'
cient have been found, among
which were the relics of one of the lost
tribes of Indians. The supposition is,
that the luar:.e.4t cave was used as the
princely pinasion of the head chief of an
Indian tribe, who were the aborigines of
the C:.v-'- ; for in wt'.o:e there was

found complete a large chair (tl',. ,hif's,
no doubt) made out of one piece of
wood, several dishes-one fashioned
like a turtle-bi.1 -. other remarkable
curiosities, made of wood and stmu.-, all
in a good state of preservation.

or other managed to get back to Grand
Turk. A couple or three days more,
and the Halifax steamer comes along ;
I bid farewell to those with whom I had
become acquainted; I leave Grand Turk
with many '-. for among its people
I had experienced a vast amount of
kindness and courtesy ; virtues that do
not glisten merely upon the surface, but
are the pure emanations of the heart,

Ta The .egist rarU-neral's Annual
Report states that the death rate has
increased from 293 in 1881 to 411
during the past year; 23 of which oc-
curred in the Army and Navy. A-
mong civilians the rate is something
over 25 per :hous:ui,.1. The increase
may be largely, attributed to the
Dengue fever as the cause both direct-
lv and indirectly. The total number
of births registered during the year
1881 were 542, of which 200 were
white and 342 colored,-giving an
annual rate p:r 1000 of over 26 anong

the profuse display of fancy articles,

open the doors, and upset every thing
in theim way. Berry Sanders was

severely hurt while running away
from .danger. Alexander Brooks,
Warren Bryson, Glenn Stout, and
other inoffensive Negroes were lashed
until blood streamed down their
backs. So great was the dismay
created by this nights's work that
many of ,the colored men who were
raising crops on shares have aban-
doned their property and are roaming
around Athens and Gainsville, seek-
ing safety in Jacobs County. The
marauders, who are a remarkably
well-organized party of fifty, called at
the cabin of Bob Ramson, who is a
troublesome Negro, and, after whip-
ping him severely, one of them shot
him through the mouth, the ball

neck. He is not expected to live.

We clip the following from a late.
American paper:-
"A Constantinople contemporary an-
nounces the discovery of Noah's Ark.
It appears that some Turkish Commis-
sioners f':.;".id -.1 to investigate the
question of avalanches on Mount Ararat
suddenly came upon a gigantic strac-
ture of very dark wood protruding from
a glacier. They made inquiries of the
*inhabitants (Q. 1,725 in their report).
These had seen it for six years, but had
been. afraid to -; r-, *.m!' it because a
spirit of fierce ,asx--,t ..,d I. t-i seen look-
ing out of the upper window. Turkish
Commissioners, however, are bold men,
not deterred by such trifles, and they
determined to reach it. Situated as it
was among the fastnesses of one of the
glens of Mount Ararat, it was a work of
enormous difficulty, and it was only af-
ter incredible hardships that they suc-
ceeded. The ark, one will be glad to
hear, was in a .-:.-1 state of preserva-
tion, ; ._'i the angles-Oobserve, not
the bow or stern-had been a good deal
broken in its descent. They recognized
it at once. There was an .',.:,ii- ,i'ai
among tlo ti.. who 'i., -iiii.i
his BIible, and he saw it was made of
the ancient gopher wood of Seri ture,
whichlts. every one knows, only gR'ows
on the plains of the Euphrates. -
ing an entrance into the structure,
which was painted brown, they found
that the Admiralty requirements for the
II.-,-.1,-t-. of horses had been carried
out, and the interior was divided into
partitions fifteen feet high. Into three
of these .only could they get, the others
being full of .ice, and, how far the ark
extended into the glacier they could not
tell. If, however, on being uncovered
it turns out to be' 300 cubits long it
will go hard with disbelievers in the
book of Genesis. "Needless to say,"
says the PALL MALL GAZETTE, an Amer-
ican was soon on the spot, and negotia-
tions have been entered into with the
local Pacha for its speedy transfer to
the United States.

When Vice President Dennis, of the
Atlantic Mutual Insurance Company, in
Wall Street, read an account of the find-,
Sing of Noah's Ark in a glacier on Mt.
Ararat to-day, he said :--" I believe we
have a record of that vessel in our
books." Then he took an ancient
volume from its shelf, and turned to a
page on which was written the follow-
ing "inspection minute:"-Noah's Ark,
built by Noah; owned by Noah and
others; tonnage 42,413.95; hull of go-
pherwood; pitched without and within ;
used as a passenger and cattle transport;

A Derangement of the



And :Nervous System.
0 -.

Below will be found a brief Sum-
Smary of a Lecture upon the Liver, delivered
before the Eclectic C '.', e of Medicine by

T HE LIVER has been known as th(
PURIFIER of the Circulation. From its
size and spongy structure, it plays a mosi
important part in the animal economy, as
regards assimilation and nutrition. Food
taken in the month and acted unon by the
digestive organs or the stomach is con-
verted into Glucose and Peptone, and in
these forms enters the Portal vein. llere
by the action of the liver, these substances,
are converted into a form of sugar and
pass out of the liver by a large vein, called
the Hepatic vein, into the general circula.
tion. The new material now formed serves
two purposes, viz. : the maintenance ol
heat in th!e body and assisting in the eel.
growth of the system.
Dr. Murchison says, "The composition
of bile and its secretion is very complex.
It is constantly being secreted by the
liver, and, increasing suddenly before eat-
ing, gradually decreases as soon as the ap-
petite is satisfied and feeding ceases." Now
if this most important organ of the body
become torpid, or the passage of bile in.
terfered with, emaciation and disease en
-sue. I note eight marked peculiarities
that now occur, and which we all know of :
1. The patient complains of a
feeling of weight and fullness oI
the epigastrium.
2. Distention of the stomach
and bowels by wind,
3. Heart-burn.
4. A feeling of weariness, pains
in the limbs and great sleepiness
after meals.
5. A. bad taste in the mouth,
e -.- :l!y in the morning, and
furred tongue.
6. Constipation, with occasion-
-loo-toiwal-ao 0i (1iatC.vorhcek -
7. Headache in front of head.
8. Depression of spirits and
great 'melancholy, with lassitude
and a disposition to leave every-
thing for to-morrow.
All of the above symptoms go to show
functional derangement of the liver ; and
now comes the great importance of any
error made as to the condition of the pa-
tient. He should immediately provide
himself with a LIVER STIMULANT,
the most common form of which is a Pill
Daily experience shows that this, when
the Pill is compounded properly, is the
readiest mode of inciting and promoting
the action of the liver, and can be almost
always relied on. I have devoted many
years of my life, as many of you now be-
fore me know, to compounding a Pill thai
will act readily and systematically as a
Bilious Remedy. I dJo not belih've in
great purgatives, and therefore have made
a Pill, one of which is an activei and
thorough dose. I have called it

D. IAi 'S fl M EIFill.

They are universal in their oi'?'t-, and
a cure can almost always be guaranteed.

A writer in an exchange says: "Oh,
ye tired mothers anti daughters, lis-
t.en now and let me tell you a secret-
a secret worth knowing. This taking
no comfort as you go along, but for-
ever looking forward to all enjoy-
ments, does not pay. From what I
know of it, would as soon chase
butterflies lor a living, or bottle moon-
shine for a cloudy night. The only
true way to be happy, is to take the
drops of happiness as God gives them
to us every 'day of our lives. What
is work but something to keep us out
of mischief; and she who does too
much of it, instead of keeping out of
mischief, is playing the very mischief
with herself. How can a woman be
at her best to entertain her husband,
or to instruct or amuse her family,
who makes a perpetual slave of her-
self, and keeps her poor, tired body
in a state of drudgery and physical
weakness. Better let some things go
undone than to so completely unfit
one's self for all enjoyment at home.
The great thing is to learn to make
the most of one's self, and to be happy
over our work. It is so the world
over. The boy must learn to be
happy while plodding over his les-
son ; the merchant while he is making
his fortune; the farmer while he is
following the plow. If he fails to
learn this art, he will be sure to get
tired out and to miss his enjoyment
when he gains what he has sighed for."
