This Distressing Affection which renders Life

MemlHT of the Royal College of Surgeons, Lon
don, Graduated from one of the most eminent
Col'eges in the United States, and the greater
part of who:e ife has been spent in the hospitals
of Lou J on, Fris, Philadelphia and elsewhere,
has effected some of the most astonishing cures
that were ever known ; many troubled with ring
ing in the head and ears when asleep, great
nervousness, being alarmed at sudden sounds,
bashfuincss, with frequent blushing, attended
sometimes with derangement of mind, were cured
TAKE PARTICULAR NOTICE.
Dr. J. addresses all those who have injurrd
themselves by improper indulgence and solitary
habits, which rniu both body and mind, unfitting
tliem for either business, study, society or mar
riage. Thksk are some of the sad and melancholy
effects produced by early habits of youth, viz:
Weakness of the Back and Limbs, Pains iu the
Back and Head, Dimness of Sight, Loss of Mus
oftlur Power, Palpitation of the Heart, Dyspepsy,

What a pity that a young man, the hope of his
country, the darling of his pareuts, should be
snatched from all prospects and enjoyment ol
life, by the consequence of deviating from the
path of nature and indulging in a certain secret
habit. Such iKirsons MfST before contemplating
reflect that a sound mind and body are the most
necessary requisites to promote connubial happi
ness. Indeed without these, the journey through
life becomes a weary pilgrimage; the prospect
hourly darkens to the view ; the mind becomes
shadowed with despair and filled with the melan
choly reflection, that the happiness of another
liccoiucs blighted with our own.
A CERTAIN DISEASE.
Wheu the misguided and imprudent votary ot
pleasure finds that he has imbibed the seeds ot
this painful disease, it too often happens that an
iil-timcd sense of shame, or dread of discovery,
deters him from applying to those who, from
education and respectability, can alone befriend
hiin, delaying till the constitutional symptoms of ,
t his horrid disease mase ineir ajuicuinui-c, u
as ulcerated sore throat, diseased nose, nocturai
pains in the head and limbs, dimness of sight,
deafness, nodes on the ehin bones and arms,
blotches on the head, face and extremities, pro
gressing with frightful rapidity, till at last the
palate of the mouth or the bones of the nose fall
in, and the victim of this awful disease becomes
a horrid object of commiseration, till death puts
a e!iod to his dreadful Buffering, by sending
him to " that Undiscovered Country from whence
no traveller returns."
It is a melancholy fact that thousands DIE
victims to this terrible disease., throiiirh falling
into the hands of Iznorant or unskillful PRE
TENDERS, who, by the nsc of that deadly Poi
son, Mercury, fcc, destroy the constitution, and
incapable of curing, keep the unhappy sufferer
month after month taking their uoxious or in
jurious compounds, and instead of being restored
to a rcuewal of Life Vigor and Happiness, in des
pair leave him with ruined Health to sigh over
his galling disappointment.
To such, therefore, Dr. John-sto pledges him
self to preserve the most Inviolable Secrecy, and
from his extensive practice and observations in
the great Hospitals of Europe, and the first in
this country, vis : England, France, Philadelphia
n ud elsewhere, is enabled to offer the most cer
tain, speedy and effectual remedy iu the world
for all diseases of imprudence.

GETTINCJ A LIFT.
'And wha kens, ilarjory, by that time
Bomebody may gie us a lift.'
Marjory shook her pretty head. She
had not just now her lover's hopefulness ;
butbhe smiled, as she always did, at his
Scotch accent, glancing up archly, and the
shake of the head was not very discourag
ing. The two were standing before that mossy
little cottage at the corner of the lane, just
where the sweeping shadows of the great
elm flickered over it. This cottage was
Marjory's day-dream a tiny, cozy, flower,
clad day-dream, with a good substantial
wall and vine-coverod hedge about it. In
that distant future when she and Adam
should be forehanded enough to wed, she
liked to fancy herself mistress of this pretty
cottaee, going iu and out of the sunny
porch, or waitiug for Adam of a summer
evening down at the little gate under the
elm. The place belonged to Squire Auton
upon the hill, but the squire was away and
the placo unoccupied, aud Marjory was at
full liberty, therefore, to tenant it with a
dream. She never passed the cozy little
nest without a longing glance thitherward.
The 'by that time' of which Adam
spoko was long in coming, and to Marjory
it 6cemed somehow this morning farther off
Adam, the sturdy young Scotsman, saw
no cause for despair in this new country,
with it fertile soil and sunshine. He was
a gardener, known in all the region for his
skill and thrift, aud he trusted to shape the
future with his own strong bauds. Yet to
be owner of a pretfy place like thai, with
its low caves, its tidy shell-bordered path,
and its elm shadows, was a thing worth
dreaming about, and he let Marjory have
her pretty dream.
'It's no unlike the wee bit place at hame,'
said Adam, eyeing it with a lingering glance
as he turned to the road.
Well, well, go your ways, Adam,' Eaid
Marjory. 'It's long past noon, and I've
to stop down the lane with this basket for
And Adam, lifting the basket over the
stile for her, went his way, whistling
Slowly Marjory passed up the lane with
her basket, summer odors about her, and
summer blossoms every where sheddiug
their shell like petals in a fragrant snow
fall, not whiter nor sweeter that the clean
linen she was carrying to the Widow Gray ;
for Marjory was a capital work-woman, if
she did dream over her tasks now and
The basket was refilled from the widow's
garden with a goodly freight of vegetables
for the houseful of youngsters for whom the
young girl was purveyor, and the after
noon shadows were lengthening as patient
Marjory went her way up the lane once
more. She paused a moment at the stile to
rest Over the summer fields a soft, hazy
sunlight fell ; the meadows were golden ;
a veil of impalpable mist hung in the drow
sy air. Marjory lingered, with her red
hood thrown back over her shoulders look
ing wistfully yet wearily at the 6cene. Her
eye wandered to the hills lying afar off,
fleeting cloud and shifting Bhadow flecking
them. How distant they seemed; jet how
near and familiar ! She had never visited
them, though they seemed so near. All
her life had laiu along the beaten track of
household ways the elder sister patiently
caring for the old folks and the little ones.
Never, in her remembrance, had there
happened to Marjory such a longing for a
holiday, such a weariness of the old fami
liar duties, as now, when, setting down her
laden basket, she leaned upon the stile, aud
shading her eyes with her hands, looked
down the winding road. It was all so
balmy, so luring, and quiet. Now and
then a laborer with hi3 rake ou his shoul
der plodded homeward, nodding to her as
he passed, or a creaking farm wagon, with
j its sleepy oxen, toiled up the rise ; and
presently there rose a sun lit cloud of dust
a little distance off, and through it came
the twinkliDg of red spoked slender wheels
a pretty vehicle appeared, and a young
gentleman driving. Marjory wondered
how it would feel to be sweeping along the
road like that, with no burdens to carry,
and such a fleet little pony. At that mo
ment could she believe it ? that pretty
equipage paused in the road, that swift
little pony stood stampiug impatiently, and
a pleasant voice said,
'Shall I give you a lift ?'
Marjory looked at the questioner, doubt
ful if she were not really dreaming. There
sat the vision, spruce, smiling, and holding
out its gloved bands to help her in with
her basket. Marjory felt herself dusty and
untidy in the contrast. This might be the
young squire, who was coming home to
live, she had heard ; but she smiled a shy
smile as she found herself actually lifted
to the vacant seat, and the young man
thought he had never seen anything quite
so bright and summer like as that smile.
He wondered if all country girls were like
this, with such beaming eyes and sun
tinted cheeks ; and as they rode along he
chatted pleasantly, just to evoke that smile
again. How fresh and uncontaminated and
full of rare sweetness might not such a girl
be, brought up in the woods, and breath
ing m their clean clear air I He was tired
of city people. Oity people, both men and
women, were so conventional impossible
to do anything out of the habitual routine
in the city. Now a man ought to do some
good in the world. He had often thought
it his duty to strike out in a new path, and
break through old usages. All the men of
his family had married fashionable women ;
they had wealth, they had position ; but
not one of them had a smile like that. Now
a bright cheery hearth, with a pleasant face
beside it which might incite a man to do
something worth while with his life. Such
a girl as this, now
Marjory, sitting by his side, blushed as
she rode along, seeing all the homely fa
miliar things from a grand distance, and
fancying herself a lady riding iuto town
with a gay gallant beside her.
'What is the prettiest place hereabout ?'
asked the squire, rousing from his reverie.
And Marjory told him of the little cottage
under the elm that was the prettiest place
So they rode aloug till they came insight
of the grand house on the hill a big brown
house with a great carriage-way and a row
of tall poplars. Near the south gate stood
the conservatory and hot houses. The
glass doors were open. The scent of rare
exotics floated ou the air, mingled with the
earthy odor of the garden mould. The
sun was setting behind the poplars, flush
ing everything with rose color.
'Prettier than this V asked the squire.
'How would you like to live here ?'
Ah, to live in a place like this, with a
gardener to work for you, and to bow to
the dust as he brought you a bouquet of
those wonderful flowers ! Marjory did not
answer immediately, for at that moment a
man in a ragged straw hat, at work in the
beds, lifted up his heated face, and touched
that ragged straw bat to the squire. His
eye lit up when he saw Marjory. It was
'Thank ye, squire, for giemg the lassie a
lift,' he said, coming forward. 'I'll e'en
tak' the basket, aud walk the rest ' the
way wi her.'
The young squire woke up. AVhat strange
distinctions there are in life, to be sure I
Here was a girl whom he had actually been
contemplating in the light of a wife. In
his musing he had dressed her like a queen,
and had seen her sweep gracefully in at the
wide portal of his mansion. But on the
threshold of that door her own familiar
friend, it seemed, must pause, humble and
hatless. He could not make a place for
Adam ; he could not imagine Adam in a
drawing room. Adam's sturdy boots and
brawny figure were not exactly the stuff
that dreams were made of. And, as 1 have
said, the squire woke up.
'We have had a very pleasant ride,' he
said, as, sitting Marjory and her basket
down, he bowed and drove to the stable.
And as he went he thought to himself that
it was all well enough to talk philosophy
aud dream poetry, but when things came
to the practical test, you must give day
dreams the go-by.
But when Marjory's wedding day came
at last, aud the little cottage was hers by
his own gift, it must have been gratifying
to him to know that he had fulfilled her
day dreams at least, if not bis own, iu
'givuig her a lift.'
Some orLiiicolii'ti Mories.
Mr. Lincoln usually accompanied his
gay little wife to parties, but seldom re
mained where the largest portion of the
company were, but would slip off to some
side room, or perhaps sit upon the stairs,
where his friends would soou gather about
him, begging him for a story. They often
named the tale they wished him to tell :
for instance, saying, "Oh, Mr. Lincoln,
do tell us the 'camp meeting Btory,' or the
'Baker story,' " etc., etc. I was so much
amused by the camp meeting story that at
one time when Mr. L. was stopping at our
home I got him to relate it, and even to
tell me how to spell the ridiculous names of
'Noah's sons,' so that I think I can relate
it just as be told it ; but it needs his pecu
liar voice to give it effect. Here it is :
'There had been a great camp-meeting
going on for nearly a week in the beech
woods in Ohio, and on the last day a fine
speaker preached the closing sermon. He
was a large, powerful man, with a strong
voice, and his hearers were deeply affected.
He was a very sensible man, and, seeing
clouds gathering in the west, he shortened
his sermon, telling the crew they would

not have much time to. collect their effects
and take up their beds and walk, as a storm
was coming on. In less time than it takes
to tell it tents were pulled down, beds, ta
bles, chairs, and children were loaded into
wagons, and all was noise and confusion
on the camp ground. Iu the midst of all
this bustle a little wisened-faced man ascen
ded the log steps of the pulpit, and, clasp
ing his small hands, and rolling his weak
eyes upward, squealed out, 'Brethern and
sistern !' Ho was such a striking contrast
to thu last speaker that some did pause in
their work to look with wonder upon him.
Thus encouraged the little man began
again : Brethern anti sistern,' (I wish
you could have heard Mr. Lincoln imitate
that squaking voice), " 'I rise to norato on
toe j ou on the subjec of the baptismal
yes, the baptismal! Ahem. There was
Noah, he bad three sons ahem naraeic,
Shadadarack, Meshisick, and Bcllteezer!
They all went in toe Dannel's den, and
likewise with them tccw a lion ! Ahem.'
here the crowd either renewed their work
of loading up wagons or laughed and turn
ed away. Sa the speaker, after repeating
the above, and yet gaining no attention,
closed abruptly in the following manner:
'Dear perishing friends, tf you will not
hear on toe me on this great subject, I will
ouly say this, that Squire Nobbs has re
cently lost a little bay mare with a flaxy
mane and tail amen 1' "
That last sentence, without a pause, was
Here is another story of Mr. Lincoln's :
'After the Weduesday-uight services at
a country meeting-house the minister urged
the members present to subscribe rfberally
toward erecting a lightning-rod on their
new church building, saying: 'Surely
you are willing to lend to the Lord. Is be
not the owner of the cattle on a thousand
hills ? Will he not repay ?' etc When a
rich old farmer got up, and, speaking slow
ly through his nose, said : 'You say the
Lord is owner of the cattle on a thousand
hills, do ye ? Well, then, why can't He
sell His cattle and buy a lightning-rod,
eh ?' Editor's Drawer, in JIaqxr's Mag

SERIES OF RECEPTIONS TO BE GIVEN.
Cardinal McGoskey and the members of
the Papal Legation are expected to return
to New York City within a few days.
Upon their return a series of receptions
will be given to them by several of the
principal Catholics of New York City.
The first of these will take place during the
comiug week one at the residence of the
Messrs. O'Brien, the bankers of Wall
street, the otber at the residence of Louis
B. Biusee, the President of the Catholic
Union of New York. Ou Monday, May
17th, the Xavier Union will give a recep
liou to the Cardinal and the Papal Lega
tion at Delmonico's. Invitations will be
sent to the public authorities of the JSlata
and city, civil and military ; to the princi
pal btnovolent, literary, aud other societies,
irrespective of creed ; to the prominent
members of the bar, and of the legal, medi
cal, and other professions ; to the Execu
tive Committee of the Catholic Union, and
to the prominent Catholic clergymen of
New York and other cities. There will be
obout 500 guests invited. Addresses w ill
be presented to the Cardinal, the Ab-Le-

will be made by Cardinal McCloskey, and
by Monsignoro Roncctti on behalf of the

the cardinal oath.
The Cincinnati Gazette calls atlentiou to
the circumstance that in all reports of the
proceedings in connection with the cere
monj' of conferring the scarlet berctta upon
Cardinal McCloskey, minute and complete
as these reports were, there is an omission
of the oath taken by him before the berctta
was conferred. The Pope's brief to the
Cardinal-elect contained this sentence:
"It is our wish that before you receive the
beretta you should take and subscribe with
your own hand the oath which will be
presented by the aforesaid, our beloved
son, Ceasar Boncetti, and send it to us,
either by his hand or by any other.'
There U some curiosity to know what
sort of an oath it was that was not taken
publicly, but privately, and which the
head of the Church iu Borne bo carefully
directed should be taken and subscribed
before the beretta was received, and should
be forwarded to him.
An Old Time Girl Mrs. Rachel
Reed, mother-in-law of ex-Governor Bigler,
died in Clearfield on the 9th insL, in her
83rd year. " In 1808, when only sixteen
years of age, Bhe traveled all the way from
'Oldtown' to Philadelphia on horseback,
thence to Wilmington, Delaware, and across
the couutry to Frederick, Maryland, and
returned by way Baltimore and Harris
burg to Clearfield, a distauce of nearly
seven hundred miles. From Baltimore to
Clearfield she carried set of China cups
and saucers in her lap, and delivered them
at the family residence without a flaw.
That was the kind of girl3 they had in those
Forests and Rainfall. Two mem
bers of the French Academy of Sciences
recently read a paper on the subject of the
influence of forests on the rainfall in a re
gion. Recquerel held, what is generally
accepted as true, that forests increase the
amount of water received by the soil, but
Marshal Vaillant and others have express
ed a contrary opinion, and it becomes im
portant, therefore, to test, by experiment,
the two theories. The argument of the
case for M. Recquerel is that 'Rain is form
ed when a warm and hurried wind comes
in contact with strata of cold air, and since
the air of forests is colder and more hurried
than the open, rain must fall there in
greater abundance.' The experiments
were conducted in and near a large forest.
One set of instruments for gathering rain
and recording the temperature.saturation of
the air, &c, was put at a height of about
twenty feet above a group of oaks thirty
feet high, in the heart of the forest. An
other set of instruments was put in the open
air at a distance of 325 yards from the
forest, and at the same height above the
ground as the first At the end of Bix
months the records showed that during the
first six months of 1874 more rain fell in
the forest during each month than in the
open field. The total rainfall in the forest
wa8 7f inches; the total rainfall in the
open field was a fraction less than seven

Saving is Wealth. One great cause
of the poverty of the present day, wisely
says an exchange, is a failure of our com
mon people to appreciate small things.
They do not realize how a daily addition,
be it ever so small, will soon make a large
pile. If the young men and womeu of to
day will only begin, and begin now, to save
a little from their earnings and plant it in
the soil of some good savings' bank, and
weekly or monthly add their mite, they
will wear a happy smile of competence
when they reach middle life. Not only the
dTf bu&Abe ability to increase it will also
grow. Let clerk aud tradesman, laborer
and artisan, make, now and at once, a be
ginning. Store up eome of your youthful
force for future contingency. Let parents
teach their children to begin early to save.
Begin at the fountain head to coutrol the
stream of extravagance to choose be
tween poverty and riches. Let our youth
go on in the habits of extravagance for fifty
years to come as they have for fifty years
past, and we shall have a cation of beg
gars, with a moneyed aristocracy. Let a
generation of such as save in small sums
be reared, and we shall be free from want.
Do not be ambitious for extravagant for
tunes, but seek that which is the duty of
every one to obtain independence and a
comfortable home. Wealth, and enough
of it, is within the reach of all. It is ob
tained by oue process, and one only sav
ing. How to Make the Mischief. Keep
your eye on your neighbors. Take care of
them. Do not let them stir without watch
ing. They may do something wrong if
you do. To be sure, you never knew them
to do anything very bad, but it may br on
your own account they have not. Per
haps, if it had not been for your kind care
they might have disgraced themselves a ,
loug time ago. Therefore, do not relax
any effort to keep thetn where they ought
to be. Never mind your own business
that will take care of itself. There is a
man passing along he is looking over the
fence be suspicious cf him ; perhaps he
contemplates stealing some dark night ;
there is no knowing what queer fancies he
may have got in his head.
If you find any symptoms of any one
passing out of the path of duty, tell ejel'y
one else what you see and be particular to
see a great many. It is a good way to cir
culate such things, though it may not bene
fit yourself or any oue else particularly.
Do keep something going silence is a
dreadful thing ; though it is said there was
sileuce in heaven for the space of half an
hour, do not let aDy such thing occur on
earth it would be too much for this mun
If, after all your watchful care, you can
not see anything out of the way in any
oue, you may be sure it is not because they
have not anything bad : perhaps in an un-
guarded moment, you lost sight of them ;
throw out hints that they are no better
than they should be, that you should not
wonder if the people found out what they
were, after a while ; then they may not
hold their heads so high. Keep it going,
aud some one may take the hint, and begin
to help you along after a while, and there
will be music, and everything will work
like a charm.
Managixq a Brother-in-law. In a
life of Lord Shulburne, recently published
in England, the followiug ingenious remedy
for a disagreeable brother-in-law is given :
Lady Arabella Denny was married young
to a neighboring gentleman, one of the
oldest families among the English Irish, a
very good sort of man, uninformed and
ignorant, but who had a brother, Sir
Denny, a coward, a savage and a fool, who
set himself to make her life unhappy. She""
knew that if she complaiued, or even told
her husband, it would make an irreconcila
ble breach between the two brothers, and
therefore she could not reconcile it to her
principles. She told me, however, that
finding she could not endure h'm brutality,
and that her nerves began to fail her, she
had recourse to the following stratagem :
She determined la learn, privately, to fire a
pistol. When she had practiced sufficient
ly to become a very good shot, she prevail
ed on him, without letting him into the
secret, to accompany her to the retired
spot where she had practiced, and showed
him how dexterous she had become, telling
him at the same time that she suffered so
much from his brutality that, if he did not
alter his behavior, she was determined to
apply the skill she had obtained by coming
behind him, or by the surest means she
could inveut, his HI-usag3 having made
her regardless as to her own life. After
this conversation he immediately changed
his mauncr, and never afterward gave her
the least trouble.
New Poisonous Snake. A wonderful
poisonous snake has just found a home m
the Loudon Zoological Gardens. This is a
snake-eating snake, hence called ophiopha
gus. Dr. Fayrer has ably described this
creature. We learn from him that this
most formidable ot poisonous suakes is
found, but not commonly, in India, the
Andaman and Philipine Islands, etc. It
is the largest and most formidable of known
venomous snakes. Shortly after his arrival
he was fed by the keeper, who put an ordi
nary English snake into his cage ; the
ophiophagus quickly devoured the .English
suake by bolting him head first. In gen
eral appearance this new snake is very like
a common cobra, except that, wtien he
spreads his hood, he is seen to be matked
in very pretty bands, uot unlike the pat
terns on oil-cloth. The head is omewhat
almond-shaped, exceedingly lizard-like, not
flat and triangular like that of the rattle
snake. When Bitting up with his hood ex
panded, the snake is continually jerking his
head in a restless manner, reminding us of
the quick, darting action of the common
green lizard ; the eye is exceedingly clear
and bright. When disturbed be hisses
loudly, and shows hia temper by extruding
his long, black, forked tongue, which, he
vibrates with marvelous celerity. The
lower part of the glass of the cage now in
habited by this snake has been painted
white, in order that his naturally hasty
temper shall be disturbed as little as possi
ble by the morning calls of visitors.
