He was au Adventist, .which did
not binder his being a Cook County
Granger. He believed for a long
timo that the world was going to
come'to an end last Mxmday, which
did not prevent hjs having on hand
numerous stacks of hay. He was
pious, which did not keep him
from seeing his shortcomings. But
he ratified himself up in his ascen?
sion robes last Monday, and mount?
ed on one of those stacks of hay to
get a good start for the New Jeru?
salem, which did not keep him from
going to sleep after tie; had waited
awhile for the-grand event. Peace?
fully ho dozed, until just beforo the
rain, when some heathenish boys
set five to the hay-stack, and as the
flames circled around him he awoke.
He supposed it was over, and philo*",
sophically remarked!: "lnh?1, just

Don Piatt has this Capital notice
of Spencer, the little fat sutler
. whom the negroes of Alabama
thrust into the Senate to represent
that State: "It required a war that
emancipated the slaves and sunk
us deepor in debt, to say nothing
ot the frightful carnage, to produce
mich a Senator as Spencer. V/a
cau.oorir^^ the presence of an
ignorant negro in the Senate, for
tua color is .emblematic of the Re
publiean party^his -very odor is
' 'ch^i^ct^ristic of its'corrupt condi?
tion?but Spencer is tmo of those
evils that defy philosophy.'*
} "The" Couricr^Jp?rn?l says: "We
tl must decline the advice of aCh cago
contemporary to; try Cincinnati
"Whiskey as a remedial agent in any
case whatever. A single drink of
Cincinnati whiskey gives one a
' feeling of 'true inwardness' that wo

a violinist of his daughter. "For
the same reason that you use rosin,

The symptoms of Liver Complaint are
uneasiness and pain in tho aide. Soino
times the pain is in the shoulder, aud is
mistaken for rheumatism. Tho stomach
Iis affected with loss of appetite and sick
Iness, bowels in general costive, and
sometimes alternating with lax. The
head is troubled with pain, and dull,
heavy sensation, considerable loss oi
memory, accompanied with painful sen?
sation of haying left undone something
which ought to have been done. Often
complaining of weakness, debility and
low spirits. Sometimes many of the
I above symptoms attend the disease, and
' at other times, very few of them; but the
Liver is generally the organ most in?
SIMMONS' LIVER REGULATOR!
For all Diseases of tho Liver, Stomach and Spleen !
ris evidently a Family Medicine, and by being kept ready for im?
mediate resort, will save many on hour of suffering, and many a
dollar in time and doctors' bills.
After forty years' trial, it is still receiving the most unqualified testi?
monials of its virtues from persons of the highest character and re?
sponsibility. Eminent physicians commend it us the most
for Consttpattox, Hiadachv., Pain in the Shoulders, Dizziness, Sour
Stomach, bad taste in the Month, Bilious Attacks, Palpitation of the
Heart,'Pain in the region of the Kidneys, Despondency, Gloom and
. forebodings of evil; all of which oro the offspring of a diseased Liver.
If yon feel "Dull, Drowsy, Debilitated, have frequent headache,
Month tastes badly, poor Appetite end Tongue Coated, you arc suffer?
ing from Torpid Liver, or "Biliousness," and nothing will cure you so
speedily and permanently.
The Liver, the largest organ in the body, is generally the scat of the
disease, anft if not Regulated in time, great suffering, wretchedness
and DEATH Will ensue.
