THE SECRETS OF SPUING.-The edi?
tor of the New Orleans Times thus
discourses on tho glories of this de?
There is nothing fairer and sweeter
in spring than its gradual Irighton
ing into color. You see A plain
covered with yellow, withered grass,
a typo of lifeless, sapless desolation.
Yon look at it through the dark
winter days, and, if you ar? sad and
fanciful, you weave shroud after
shroud for your own dead hopes |
from these mourning garments of ?
nature. Suddenly there comes a !
breath of warm spring air. Some- j
how, you scarce know how, tho :
yellow of the grass seems less lifeless
?-not so much the hue of death as
the living yellow of the sunlight. I
That seems at times to lend it a tint
of chrysopasc, the gold shaded off I
into a tender hue of green. It deep- j
ens and glistens, till some morning
after a warm spring shower you loc>k
abroad, and lo! your desolate plain I
has bathed in the "fountain of
youth." It is clad in tho greeuest of
festal robes, adorned with star-liko
ilowero, and gems quivering and
glistening like diamonds of the very
first water. You aro surprised, and
perhaps ? little hurt at this indeco?
rous haste of Mother Earth, to got
rid of her iusiguia of mourning.
Sho can be sympathetic with our
sorrows no more, and you aro dis?
posed to resent ns a personal insult, j
tho fact that she has cast all caro to
the spring winds. You look out
with the lordly sense of a superior i
sentiment, which is independent of |
all surroundings, and hug your own
Borrows closer to your hearts.
But beforo many days tho soft!
attraction of the outer lifo prevails. !
The 6tir and hum of growth, tho
perpetual miracles of life and beauty,
from death and decay, address them?
selves to your senses and whisper
their mysterious secrets in your ear.
The inner mourning chamber of j
your life must bc trebly locked, if the !
precious hopes of the beautiful sea- j
son cannot win their way in. And j
once in, how they liaug tho desolate
room with garlands; chuso out :iie
shadows, and whisper lessons of pa?
tients, because, iu "His eyes, are yo
not of more account than the Howers
of thc field?"
You stand under tho drifting npplo
blossoms and look up at tue sky I
overhead, lt is a sapphire arch of
promise, whose profouuu peace seems
to span the "mystic gulf twixt God
and m.in." You look down to the
renewed anti glorified earth, and your !
whole sole rises and swells in a sud- ]
den fervor of love nod thanksgiving. '
And what if poor and desotate? !
nave not tho dead wastes blossomed
into beauty, and to you, too, may i
not God say: "To the night cometh
morning, and to winter thu glory of j
Royalty is by no means exempt
from toil and trouble. Napoleon and
Victoria have been obliged to read

Ar? Englishman, named Alfred
Oldstock, leaped intet tho waters of

KO HEALTH WITHOUT VIGOR.
Tho wear and tear of life tcllB npon us all
more or less. What are wo but machines?
Tho vital principle is the motivo power
that keeps tho human engine in motion;
but aa beams, pistons, connection pipes,
condensers and boilers wear out, so do
organs, muscles, tisoues and all tho com?
pound parts of that marvellous piece of
work called man.
Tho mechanism of the body requires to
bo repaired and strengthened justas much
as the mechanism employed to grind corn,
or spin cotton, or weave cloth. Steam
cannot drive a broken shaft, or impel a
drum or a wheel that is out of gear; nei?
ther can tho vital force act through a
paralyzed limb, or an inert organ.
Aro you wearing out? Do you feel that
any one of your organs-your stomach,
liver, bowels, nervous system, or any other
essen "I part of your organization, falters
in it ! work? If so, repair the damage
with tho mof-t powerful, vet harmless, of
invitrorants, CIOSTETTER'S 8TOMACI?
BITTERS. Remember that debility is tho
"beginning of the end"-that the climax
of all weakness ia a universal paralysis of
the system, and that such paralysis is tho
immediato precursor of death.
Don't wait for diseaao to commit its
ravages before you commence tho
strengthening process. Keep tho whole
body in a vigorous condition by prevent?
ing, as far as possible, the inroads of do
cay. Repair the waste of nature with
nature's beet tonic, Hoetottcr's Bitters.

to moulded met alic or vnlcanizable base.
Strong Plate Teeth as firmly attached to
the base as if solderod to swaged
plate, aro. by this process, substituted for
those specially designed for moulded baso.
By their use tho operator ia left free to ex
crciso his own judgment in their arrange?
ment, and finds himself no longer confined
to tho samene&s of the present style of
blocks, or single teeth weakened by carv?
ing for moulded work.
No now appliances are required in this
process. It is easily acquired by any one
familiar with either moulded or swaged
work. It gives to the operator confidence
in the reliability of his cases, exempting
him from tho disappointment and per?
plexity often attendant on his most faith?
