"FIVE SATURDAYS."-This being
leap year, there aro twenty-nine days
in the month of February, and con?
sequently aa the 1st waa Saturduy,
there will be five Saturdays in tho
shortest month of the year. This
hts been noted as something curious,
and the inquiry made in what num?
ber of years will this happen again.
Th? New Orleans Picayune declares
the answer easy, lt will happen
again in 1806, after the lapse of twen?
ty-eight years. At the next leapyear,
. in 1872, there will be five Thursdays
in February; in 1876, five Tuesdays
in 1880, five Sundays; and so on, ?
retrogression of two days in the week
for ?very leap year for seven returns,
until Saturday recurs again in 1806,
-when there will be five Saturdays,
Tho year 1000 is not a leap year. Thc
years ending with even hundreds arc
not leap years, unless they aro divisi
ble by 400, as well as by four. 17?(
and 1800 were not leap years, am
1000 will not bo. There will be om
day, therefore, lost iu tho order, ir
1000, but the other recurrence wil
continue through the whole of th
next century, the samo as in this
but every recurring duy of the weel
will be shifted back one day of tin
week, in consequence of the inter
vention of the year 1000. The twen
ty-eighth year from 1806 will hav
five Fridays instead of five Satin
days. There are no anomalies in th
order of succession of the days c
the week to the days of the monti)
This is true of every day in the yen
as well as of February, and of th
20th of February as of every othe
day. lu the same cycles every da
of the year returns to the same da
of the week in every twenty-eigl
years. The intercalated day of til
20th February returns only seve
times, once on each second day of tl:
week; every other day returns foi
times to the same day of the weel
but at unequal intervals, but tl
whole order occurs again ut the twei
ty-eighth succession. The interva
are caequal, but the order is invar
able, within the cycle and in the n
curring cycles. The general rule
this: Every day of the month r
turns to the samo day of the week
intervals of five, six, six and elev(
years, when they all return to tl
same days together. For exnmpl
Sunday, tho 2d day of February, w
recur on Sundays in 1874, 1880, 18'
and 1806, tho order being six, si
eleven, five. Tho 3d February, Mo
day, will recur to Monday in 1K7
1885, 1800, 1806, tho ord?* being si
eleven, five, six, and tho 4th of F
bruary will not return to a Tuesdi
until 1870, but the order will be 187
1884. 1890, 1806, in the same sen
of eleven, five, six, six, continua
repeated. It will ho seen that t
days do not correspond to the EUI
days of tho month as at tho beg
ning, until 1896. There is no var
tion in the order of astronomic pl
nomena on whioh these rules
calculation aro bosod. Every ap;
rent perturbation is compensated
some wider generalization. There is
no disorder or eccentricity anywhere
in tho series. The "five Saturdays"
for February eau be computed buok
to the very beginning of the Julinu
period, and forward to any named
period in the future, ns exactly us nny
other fuct iu chronology, aud recur
as r?gulai ly.

TnE CHINESE REBELLION-WHOLE?
SALE SLAUGHTER.-According to our
latest advices from China, (Hong
Kong, December 10,) "the war in
the Noith between tho imperinl and
rebel forces is being vigorously wng
ed." To show how vigorously, wo
nro told that a great buttle at Shan?
tung promontory resulted in the de?
feat of tho rebel army, which lost
80,000 men. But subsequently tho
imperialists were defeated in their
turn "in several severo engagements,
with heavy loss." A loss that muy
bo described an "heavy" in compari?
son to that of 80,000 men, which
seems not to amount to much iu
China, must have been heavy in?
deed. PerhnpR it is safe to put it at
fives times 80,000, more or loss, or
400,000. This Chinese rebellion has
been going ou for somewhat moro
than eighteen years, during which it
bus been estimated that from thirty
to forty million lives have been sac?
rificed. If it coutinues for twentv
years longer-and there seems to ue
no special reason why it should not,
unless foreign intervention put? a
atop to it-even the 500,000,000 of
Chinese population will begin to bo
perceptibly thinned out. Should tho
Chinese persist in destroying each
other on such n scale of wholesale
slaughter, SH in tho recent battle at
Shunt nug promontory, tho Russian
Czar may be constrained, if only by
motives of humanity, to step over
tho "Oreat Wall" erected as a pro?
tection against Tartar incursions, to
overrun tho empire and sack Pekin,
like Genghis Khan, in 1215.

many people of that section found it

BEAR I1V MIND-When disease bas
undermined tho health, and thc physical
system bas become prostrated, a stimu?
lant that will not only strengthen, but re?
move tho- cause, should bo immediately
resorted to. Mental distress is also a
fruitful source of the breaking down of tho
constitution, and the ravages of this enemy
to health are truly alarming. For all such
maladies HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BIT?
TERS have been found unsurpassed. By
acting directly upon tho digestive organs,
they remove tho heavy, disagreeable feel?
ing after eating, BO often complainod of by
persons of a dclicato temperament. AB
soon as digestion is restored, tho patient
linds bis strength increasing and bis ge?
neral health improved.
Thousands of persons certify that it may
be relied on in all cases of weakness or
nervous debility attendant upon sedentary
habits. Tho generality of Bitters are so
disagreeable lo thc tasto that tie y aro
objectionable to a weak stomach. This is
not tho case with llostetter's Bitters,
which will bo lound mild ami extremely
pleasant. Balsamic plants, barks and
roots contribute their restorative juices to
render it soothing and strengthening.
Its basis is tho only puro stimulant which
has ever been prod ticed containing no fusil
oil, or any other deleterious element. Tho
most careful and skillful chemists have
analyzed tho Bitters, anti pronounce them
harmless. This is scientific testimony:
but tho testimony of the hundreds of
thousands who have experienced tho pre?
ventivo and curativo effects of tho great
vegotablo tonic and alterativo of modern
times is still moro conclusivo. In Fevc."
and Ague, Dyspepsia, Billiouaneas, Ner

general debility, it is as nearly infallible aa
