"How would you feel, my dear, if you
were to meet a wolf?" asked an old lady
of her little grand-child, with whom she
was walking along a lonely country road.
"O grand-mamma, I should be so,friglit
oned!"was the reply. "But I should
stand in front of you and protect you,"
said the old lady. "Would you. gran?
nie?" cried the child, clapping her hands
with delight. "That would be nicer
While the wolf was eating you I should'
have time to run far away."
When a man's wife presents him with
a male child, ho rushes out into the
street with frantic joy depicted upon his
face, and shouts to every one lie meets:
"I've got a boy!" When she ushers into
the world a little girl, he sneaks down to
his place of business in the morning,
quietly works away until dark, r-.nd then
says in tho most abject manner: "I?
that iB, we?I mean my wife has?ah?
presented me with?a?a?with a baby."

Tlic syniptoms of Liver Complaint'nre
uneasiness and pain in tlio side. Some?
times tbo pain is in tlic 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 t>f
memory, accompanied with painful sen?
sation of having left undone something
which ought to have been done. Often
complaining of weakness, debility and
low spirits. Sometimes many of the
above symptoms at lend 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 the Liver, Stomach and Spleen !
IT is evidently a Family Medicine, and by being kept ready for im?
mediate 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, Headache, Pain in the Shoulders. Dizziness. Sour
Stomach, bad taste in the Mouth, Bilious Attacks, Palpitation of the
Heart, Pain in the region of the Kidneys, Despondency, Gloom and
forebodings of evil; all of which are the offspring of a diseased Liver.
If you feel Dull, Drowsy, Debilitated, have frequent headache,
Month tastes badly, poor Appetite and Tongue Coated, you are 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 peat of the
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 faced without fear. As a remedy in MAL AB IOCS
