A GENTLE HINT.
In our style of climate,' with its sud
den changes of temperature,-rainl,
wind and sunshine often intermingled
in a single day,-it is no wonder that
our children, friends and relatives are
so frequently taken from us by neglect
ed colds, half ;tbe deaths resulting di
rectly from this cause. A bottle of
Boschee's German Syrup kept about
your home for immediate use will pre
vent serious sickness, a large doctor's
ill, and perhaps death, by the use of
three or four doses. For curing Con
BADLY BROKEN.-Ve understand

COMBDATION.-One of the pleasant
est combinations lately effected is that
which brought Maurice Gau2ntt and ~
Tobe .Dawkins together, two knights of t
the razor and shears. Noted for their 1
skill, and their pleasant manners, this ~
union cannot fail but give great satis- ~
faction. A pleasant shave, a nice cut
not on the face-a refreshirig shampoo, ~
or even a dye, can be had of either, it ~
don't matter which, as both are good. I
This is not all the good either for they ~
hve reduced the rates for cutting, dy- t
ing and shampooing to 25 cents each. t

RENDER TO CASA.-The legislature
and some of thie State papers are going t:
for the drummers in a style anything a
but kindly. We don't like, it and feel ,
sympathy for that much abused class,5

titles on several of the fraternity a few d
weeks ago.. This practice it shall be our c
pleasure to continue, and any good look- il
ing, well-fed, smooth talking member
of that class who presents his creden
tials at this office hereafter shall be I
placed in commission, with a rank
which will lift them above the shafts of ~
his foes. On Friday last it was our a
privilege to place on our staff Fred. A. C
Stewart, with the rank of Colonel. As
he is travelling for the house of Hiutz- fi
ler Brothers, Importers of Notions, '
White Goods, &c., of Baltimore, we n
ommand the trade everywhere to res
ppect and obey him accordingly, and to j
make as large bills with him as the
times will permit. i

ABSENT MINi)ED.-An old lady came
o town last week, and the wind being
'ery high, she put her bonnet under
ter arm to prevent its being blown
way. Her business being 6f a vexing
haracter, she became oblivious of all
ainor considerations, bonnet included,
.nd hither and thither she went bai e
Leaded, and not until everything was
ettled and her ruffled feelings calmed
id she find that there was nothing on
p of her head. It was painful to see
er. going from store to store and office
.quiring for that bonnet. It is not
nown how long she hunted, until some
.een eyed fellow spying it under her

uinting for. The joy of that old wo

f his leaving was abrupt. It was long

A Practical Question.
We have heard of young men, who con
maplate a college course antd are depend
it upon teir own efforts for support, in
>ubt as to whether, before conmnicing,
e should accumulate sufficient mteans to
ethem through, or should run the risk of
.ving their course broken by interruptionts
de necessary for the recruiting of funds.
r advice is decidedly in favor of the hat
r plan. Tihe foundation of one year at
lege, wiul enable a student, n ho during
e succeeding year may find it necessary
teach, to put to practice at once his new
tainncts, and to both deepen and widen
e field opented to him in college. Al
ough he will fall, on his return, into ano
er class, yet, if diligent, he wHi have a
cided advantage over his new ciassmtates,
d at the end ot the Sophomore year, will
rtainv be far ini advance of the position
bIch he would occup'r at that stage of his
rse, if lhe had delayed a year longer,
:d passed from Freshman to Sophtoriore
ithout any interruption. It is highly im

Ahead where they loan you a dollar
and chalk it down till to-morrow, for a
bottle of MERRELL'S HEPATINE for the
Liver. The enormous expense of im
porting the ingredients of thie great
liver medicine into this country, is why
our Druggist Dr. S. F. Fant sells but
one sample bottle to the same person
for ten cents ; but as there are fifty
doses in the large size bottles, it is
cheap enough after all at two cents
per dose, for a medicine that has never
been known to fail in the cure of dys
pepsia and all diseases of the liver. It
has never failed in the cure of liver
complaint when taken as directed, no
matter of how long standing the dis
ease, It cures Chills and Fever, Con

Liver Complaint. Sample Bottles ten
