BY JULIAN A. SELBY.
An Eastern paper makes fun of,
the old story, a revival of which, by I
a French newspaper, was cabled
lately, that the Pope is considering
the possibility of his rcsidenco in
the United States. The Pope's
American friends, says our ex?
change, if they aro wise, will warn
the Holy Father against becoming
an immigrant to this country. In
the antiqne seclusion of the Vatican
he is a spiritual potentate, a. suc?
cessor of St. Peter, and an infallible
sovereign of the Church. Here ho
would have to pay a poll tax, give
his name to the street directory
compilers, be interviewed by re?
porters, read the Beecher trial, and
?horrible thought?possible bo
defendant in legal proceedings him?
self. "What sanctity, divinity or
infallibility could hold out against
sucn leveling influences as these?
Think of the Pope receiving pro?
posals from an American "lecture
bureau," or neglecting to have his
sidewalk cleaned, or being nomi?
nated for Congress, or riding in a
street car. His Holiness will bIiuu
the disillusion which awaits him
Of all places in the world, Naples
is about the last where one Would
look for a land speculation on the
American plan; yet here wo have
in L'llalie, a Roman newspaper, a
magnificent prospectus, with a view
of the bay, as one sees it ou drop
curtains, a plan of the new streets
laid out "in the most beautiful
quarter of Naples," and an an?
nouncement of 75,000 metres of
land to be sold "in largo or small
lots." The land, we are told, is
admirably situated, commanding a
fine view of Mount Vesuvius, and
so forth, and so forth, and houses
can be built there at a moderate
price, with, all the modern conve?
niences. This is progress, certainly.
Only think of the lazzaroni going
in for eligible corner lots.
Among the papers of a Capuchin
monk, who has jnsfc died, was found
the following will: "I bequeathe,
first, to the Abbe Micbaud my bre?
viary, because he does not know
his own; . second, to M. Julius
Favre my frock, to hide his shame;
third, to M. Gambetta my cord,
which will prove useful one day
round his neck; fourth, to M.
Thiers his own work, that he may
read it over again, and fifth, to
France my wallet, because she may
shortly have occasion for one to
A young man with a speculative
optic called at an insurance office
in Indianapolis, the other day, und
asked what a policy on his mother's
life for $2,000 would cost. He ex?
plained that he had bought some
real estate, and that as future pay?
ments would crowd him some, he
thought to realize enough on the
old lady's death, as she could not
live long, to help him out. The
.insurance man advised him not to
stop at any half measures, but sr
cure the old lady's skeleton us
well and dispose of it to one of the
A patent has been taken out for

that glass can be used as building

Stomach, bad taste in the Mouth. Bilious Attacks. Palpitation of the
Heart, Poin in the region of the Kidneys. Despondency, Gloom and
forebodings of evil; all of which are the offspring of a diseased Liver.
If yon feel Dull, Drowsy, Debilitated, kave frequent headache,
Month tastes badly, poor Appetite and Tongue Coated, you am suffer?
ing from Torpid Liver, or "Biliousness," and nothing will cure you so
Speedily and permanently.

disease, and if not Regulated in time, great suffering, wretchedness
and DEATH will ensue.
