A railroad contractor agreed with the
company to construct and tqnip its entire
roaa lor i wju,wu, or wtiicn &u,uuo was
to be paid In cash and cash assets, and the
balance In the bonds and stock of the com-
?any, the price named being more than
wice the cash value of the work. The
compact provided that payments should be
made on monthly estimates, and in such
ot the said descriptions of payment as the
contractor deemed would best subserve
bis purpose in doing the work, but
the contract fixed no time for the
completion . of the work. It also pro
vided tnat tne parties should aid in
converting said assets, bonds and stock
into means for carrying on the work, and
that the contractor need not carry it on
faster than such means would serve. . The
contractor did work under the contract to
the nominal amount of $117,000, which, at
bis request, was mostly paid bim in the
cash assets, and then, the charter of the
company having expired by its own limi
tation, the work was suspended by
mutual consent, and the road abandon
ed, its bonds and- stock thus becoming
worthless. Eeld : That the contractor is
bound to account to the company for all
actual profit realized from the work.
2. W here subscribers to the stock ot a
railroad company had given their notes
for the amounts of subscriptions, payable
when tbe road should be completed, but
were subsequently induced to take up these
notes, and to give new ones, pay able la four
years, in order to enable the company to
carry, out a contract tor the completion ot
the road, and upon the confident but hon
est expression ot opinion by its officers,
that if they would do so, the road would
be completed under such contract In less
than four -years. Held: That, although
the said contract tor building the road was
afterwards, and before anything had been
done under it, abandoned by tbe contrac
tor,and tbe road has never been completed,
yet tbe subscribers are liable upon their
said new notes.

Is a very complicated and delicate one, and is more
liable to get out of order, and much, more diffionlt
to-repair, than any combination of wheels, and
cranks, and levers, made by the bands of man. Al
a rale, it is Unktroi too mucA, and badly tinkered
at that. It is often ealomeliied, narcotised, de
pleted, and otherwise misused, when all that it
really needs is a wholesome tonic and restorative
like HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS to
put it in proper trim and keep it so. The stomach is
shamefully maltreated. In the first place, the food
which its juices are Intended to dissolve, is too fre
quently fArewa info itkattily, and in a half-masti
cated condition, in which state the gastno acid
cannot properly aot npon it. The result is dyepep
ia. Then comes the doctor, and, finding the di
gestive organs weak and the bowels inert, he pro
ceeds to weaken and paralyse still more with dras
tic purgatives. . These failing as they always do
to produce a salntary ohange, he tells the invalid
that medical science can do no more for him. This,
with all due deference, is a mistake, one of those
mistakes which Tallyrand said were tantamount to
crimes. .What the dyspeptic needs is tnvtgoratlon.
8tiengtheu the stomach with HOSTE ITER'S
BITTFR3. and the stomach will strengthen every
other part of the human machipe, and make it, in
common parlance, as - good as new. Upon
tbe state ot the digestion depends, in a measure, the
condition of the whole system. Now, the bitters
are the most admirable tonio known. They consist
of tbe finest vegetable invigorants and restoratives,
combined with - an unadulterated stimulant. . The
dyspeptic needs nothing else to effect a cure, except
a light, nutritious diet, and a fair amount of exer
cise. Even in the absence of these last mentioned
accessories, the tonic and alterative properities of
the preparation will work wonders, enabling the
dyspeptio to digest inferior fare with comparative
ease, and to maintain a good habit of body, ia spite
of the drawbacks of a sedentary occupation.
