The clerk of the house of rep re .

Congress than there have been before

Bacon likens to aj'globe of precepts.'
It is instruction, it is teaching without

Kev. Sam Jones charged the Meth
odists of Nashville with selling liquor.
An investigation proved that he waa
mistaken. The Birmingham Advo
cate hints that an investigation in Bir
mingham would prove that Mr. Jones
is not mistaken were he to apply this
charge to the Birmingham Method
ists. .When Mr. Jones sh ota oft' his
rifle anywhere in the bushes he is
sure to hit something or somebody
somewhere. By the way did the
Rev. Sam Jones make a similar charge
against any denomination in Atlanta
when he was here ? If not, why not ?
Could Atlanta, on investigation, prove
him to be mistaken as readily ae
Nashville has done ? We hope so, but,
really, who does know positively ?

Noah's Ark and (He Great East
Will yon please tell me which wes
the larger-the Great Eastern cr
Noah's ark ? If the Great Eastera
was longer, wider and higher, would
not the ark hold more inside ?
F. J. MEECH.
The exact size ot Noah's ark hs s
not been determined definitely, but,
according to Sir Isaac Newton's cal
dilations, based on his estimates of j
the length of a cubit in feet and
inchon, the historical barge must have
been 525.62 feet long, 85.94 wide,
and 51.56 deep. The measured toa*
nage of the ark was 18,232. The
Great Eastern was 680 feet long, 83
feet wide, and 53 feet deep, and she
measured 28,093 tons. Although the
Great Eastern was not so well pro
portioned as the ark she probably
- had doable the carrying capacity if |
. . her coal and machinery were left out
voi her, because she was made of iron,
and the ark was a woe
The Weeta of a Mother.
It may be only a Barlow knife
withe s rusty blade and a broken

a dozen battered spools on a Knotted

tar-off corner of the bureau drawer,
under a yellow pile of little linen
and stockings, patched and darned
at the heel and at the knee. Bot all

they are the holy of the holies. It
is not often that she goes to that

sometimes, the time when a kn eek

spools are drawn forth. Ab, how

The Treasury Reserve.
Treasury officials, leferring to the
published (Statements that the treas
ury gold balance has been increased
at the expense of the legal tender
fund held for the redemption of na
tional bank notes, say that all state
ments o? this oort are untrue, and
??hat the following is the .fact: The
present administration o? the treas
ury has set apart the legal tender
fund as a trust upon which under no
circumstances encroachments will be
made, and there certainly have as
yet been none made. ?Under former
Administrations the legal tender re
serve has not been treated as a spe
cial fund and encroachments have often
been made upon it. Secretary Man
ning, however, will not permit any
deviation from the policy that the re
serve is to be held.as a sacred ftrndr
The construction given to the treasury
statements which form the foundation
of this charge ie erroneous. The bair
ance, which it is claimed contains near
ly $20,000,000 gold taken from ?the
legal tender fund, in reality contains
instead some $20.000,000 of silver?
which is reckoned against the liabili
ties of the Government which are
clearly payable in silver and which
aggregate not lesB than $30,000,000.
This fund of $20,000,000 silver is
1 $25,000,000 less than it was at times
under the- last Administration. Tak
ing this iteni-iat?^c?mmier^ it
will be seen that the $100,000,000
gold fund has been kept preserved in
tact. Treasurer Jordan is of opinion,
that the plan for the preservation of;J
the gold fund will prove effectual J
and he expects to see a continued in-ij
crease of that fund. He does not
fear compulsory silver payments, and
is of opinion that the redemption and
retirement of $11,000,000 of silver
certificates has been beneficial.

"Oh, dear I ob, dear !" said Julia
Hayes with a 6?gh, as she gazed at
her nineteen year old daughter, An

Willie White, a boy of seven years,
has been afflicted with scrofula ever
eince he was three months old. His
scalp was last year almost a mass of

in huge sores. In September last he
commenced to take Swift's Specific

fat, equabby, robust boy. His jaw is
well and his head is covered with a
fiue coat of hair. There is a little
dryness about the scalp. This is the
only sign of the terrible disease left.
His mother desires me to thank the
proprietors of Swift's Specific very
heartily, and says she is so grateful

FROM THE FATHER:
A duty for me to state to you the benefit I
have dorivod from tho uso of
Six months ago I was completely covered with
a terrible humor^and scrofulous sores. The
humor caused 'in Incessant and intoleraWa
itching, and tho skin cracked so ss to cause
thc blood to flow in many places whenever
I moved. My sufferings were great, and my
life a burdon*. I commenced the use of th?
SARSAPARILLA in April last, and have used
it regularly since that time. My condition -
bogan to improve at once. The sores have
all healed, and I feel perfectly well In every
respect-being now able to do a good day's
work, although "3 years of ago. Many Inquire
what has wrought such a cure In my case, and
I tell them, as I havo here tried to teU you.
