There are heroes in peace as well
as in war, and the good deeds of |
both deserve record. In December
last, the bark Mendota sailed from
Java for New York, with a valuable
cncTg?. The vessel had barely start?
ed, when the captain and one sailor
were taken with Javan fever, and
the command devolved on the first
mate. Soon the only other mate,
the, cook and
with the fever, and then it extend?
ed through the crew, until ulti?
mately but five men were able to
work the vessel. ' The second mate
died? but the captain lingered, and
then the chief mate, the Command?
er,^ ^was1 seized' with fever. But
thongh sick, ho had the spirt with
in him which never yields, and this
enabled him to fbaffle the fever. He
crawled out of the cabin on his
hands and knees "to get the sun,"
crawled to the chronometer to get
the time, and then worked out the
ship's position. For several days,
with every part of the vessel reek?
ing with fever, this brave man
worked the ship, never turning her
aside to seek a friendly port for
aid; but he and his small crew
finally became so weak that they
had to alter her course, and they
stood for, St. Helena. Six days
afterwards they reached there, and
a hospital surgeon sent on board
described the misory in which the
crew and the brave commandor
wore found. This voyage the ruato
describes as the "toughest" he ever
experienced, and it will go upon
recprd, oh account of the heroism
displayed, among the famous voy?
ages o? the time.

She was srdall-f?otcd,. but very
plump; 'he was large-footed, but
gaunt; and he had his boot-legs
made to fit. He wagered her a pair
of gl?ve3 that' she couldn't get his
boots' on. ' She gazed scornfully at
hia splay feet, and greedily accept?
ed. And then she tried to get the
boots o,n. And then lie didn't have
to got the gloves. Of course, this
happened in St. Louis. The lie
puMican'- relates tho story, and its
ingenuity in explaining the lady's
failure is a pardonable exhibition
of local pride.
A telegram concerning a fresh
Texas corpse concludes thus: "Mr.
Patrick was a dangerous man in
liquor, and frequently remarked
that he had not killed a man for
Susan B. Anthony says that
there are 000,000 professional
drunkards in the United States,
and that one woman in seventeen
is married to such an artist. She
never would do it herself, thongh.
Meissonier is the best paid artist
in France. He takes two years to

Tho'Mennonite immigrants have
brought the knout into Kansas.
They recently applied it to one of
their number, who failed to return

The symptoms of Liver Complaint nre
uneasiness and pain in the side. Some?
times the pain is in the shoulder, and is
mistaken for rheumatism. The stomach
is affected with loss of appetite and sick?
ness, bowels in general costive, and
sometimes alternating with lax. The
head is troubled with pain, and dull,
heavy sensation, considerable loss ol
memory, accompanied with painful sen?
sation of having left undono something
which ought to have been done. Often
complaining of weakness, debility and
low spirits. Sometimes many of the
above symptoms attend the diseuse, and
nt other times, very few of them: but the
Liver is generally the organ mobt iu

IT is evidently a Family Medicine, and by being kept ready for im?

* After forty years' trial, it is still receiving the most unqualified testi?

sponsibility. Eminent physicians commend it as the most
for Constipation, Headachu, 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, Despondeney, Glonn?, and
forebodings of evil; all of which are the offspring of a diseased Liver.

The Liver, the largest organ in the body, is generally the seat of the
disease, and if not Regulated in time, great suffering, wretchedness
and DEATH will ensue.
Armed with this ANTIDOTE, idl climates nnd changes of water and
