Those Indians ar&a jealous set. Blue
Horse, an Ogalalla Sioux chief, who did |
not come to Washington with Red Cloud,
sent a letter to the President, telling him
he has fifty families who .wish to go to
farming and do not want to he run over
?by white men. Thon enumerates what
thoao families want; begins with houses,
includes fences, cows, horses, oxen, a
wagon, chiokens "and everything that
white men use." Then he adds signifi?
cantly: "Whateber the President may
give those who visit Washington, I wish
to share also. I also want a sewing ma?
chine and other forming implements." |

The Nazum-ad-daoule, Governor ofl

it not been for the difficulty of transport,
the Governor would have sent the entire I
heads of these enemies of the Snah to
Teheran. The distance between the seat
of his government and the capital and |
the unusual number of the trophies,
comp olio d him to resort to the expedient I
of separating tha skins from the skulls |
and forwarding the skins only." Scalps,

Tho symptoms of Liver Complaintrare
uneasiness and pain in the side. Some?
times the pain is in the shoulder, and is
mistaken for rheumatism. Tho stomach
iB affected with Ions of appetite and sick
tness, bowels in general costive, and
sonjetimes alternating with lax. The
head is troubled with pain, and dull,
heavy sensation, considerable loss of
memory, accompanied with painful sen?
sation of having left undona something
which ought to have been done. Often
complaining of weakness, debility and
low spirits. Sometimes many of the
above symptoms attend the disease, and
at other times, very few of them; but tno
Liver is generally the organ most in?
simmons' lTvER^ECULATOR !
For all Diseases of the Liver, Stonmcli and Spleen !
IT is evidently a Family Medicine, and by being kept ready for ini
mediato resort, will save many an 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 as the most
for Constipation, Himdache. 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; nil of which are the offspring of a diseased Liver.
If you feel Dull, Drowsy, Debilitated, kave frequenj headache,
Mouth tastes badly, poor Appetite and Tongxe Coated, yoxi are suffer?
ing from Torpid Liver, or "Biliousness," and nothing will cure you bo
speedily and permanently.
The Liver, the largest organ in the body, is generally the seat of tho
disease, and if not Regulated in time, great suffering, wretchedness
and DEATH will ensue.
Armed with this ANTIDOTE, all climates and changes of water and
food may be^fneed without fear. As a remedy in MALARIOUS
FEVERS, BOWEL COMPLAINTS, RESTLESSNESS, JAUNDICE,
