All events of interest, local, national and

To those who are ml familiar wilh the

of telegraph aud genera' news, bhort and
pithy editorials on tbe topica of the d y,
written in a very familiar, lociive style,
and in all it departments evidently aims

FOR THE CURE Of
Hepatitis, or Liver Complaint,
BvsrsrsiA aud aicx iiacacna
Symptoms of a Diseased Liver.
1)AIN in the right side, under the
I edge of the ribs, increases on pres
sure; sometimes the pain is in the left
side; the patient is rarely able to lie
on the left side ; sometimes the pain is
felt under the shoulder blade, and it
frequently extends to the top of the
shoulder, and is sometimes mistaken
for rheumatism in the arm. The
stomach is affected with loss of appe
tite and sickness; the bowels in gen
eral are costive, sometimes alternative
with lax; the head is troubled with
pain, accompanied with a dull, heavy
sensation in the back part. There is
generally a considerable loss of mem
ory, accompanied with a painful sen
sation of having left undone son.e
thing which ought to have been done.
A slight, dry cough is sometimes an
attendant. The patient complains of
weariness and debility; he is easily
startled, his feet are cold or burning,
and he complains of a prickly sensa
tion of the skin; his spirits are low;
and although he is satisfied that exer
cise would be beneficial to him, yet
he can scarcely summon up fortitude
enough to try it. In fact, he distrusts
every remedy. Several of the above
symptoms attend the disease, but cases
ha e occurred where few of them ex
isted, yet examination of the body,
after death, has shown the liver to
have been extensively deranged.
AGUE AND FEVER.
Dr. C. McLaxe's Liver Pills, in
cases of Ague and Fever, when
taken with Quinine, are productive of
the most happy results. No better
cathartic can be used, preparatory to,
or after taking Quinine. We would
advise all who are afflicted with this
disease 10 give them a fair trial.
For all bilious derangements, and as
a simple purgative, they are unequaled.

WEIGHED IN THE BAL
ANCE. "And you really fancy yourself in
lore with this" fdir-halred little) shop
girl?" Mr. Meredith, a tall, noble-featured
man of fifty, looked rather sadly at
hi enthusiastic young nephew.
"Fancy, uncle? That Is hardly an
appropriate word to use. I am quite
certain of the fact."
"I suppose you will consider me a
rery bad judge of the human charac
ter. If I tell you that I like her little
cousin's demure face the test. Be
lieve me, Iiarrj, thrre is more real
stamina lu Ruth Durr than, in her
pretty eousio Kachel."
"There, sir," answered Ilarry reso
lutely, "is whre I must beg hare to
differ with you."
"Well, my boy. you must choose
for youri-tir. lmembor, it U do
question for a partner for a waits, or
a pair of bright ey-s whos glitter is
to amuse you for one or two even
ings. The woman whom you no
select for your wife must nectsariy
exert a more or lea potent influence
over your whole life."
"I know it, sir," and Harry's mirth
ful face grew almost grave.
"That ah earus her own Urin? be
hind the counter of a fancy store
that they both do U no drawback in
my eye. Independence and self-xe-liance
are to be cardinal virtues, aad
even though your wife will be raUtd
into an atmosphere of comparative
weal th, a few lessous taken before
hand in the impartial school of world
ly expeiitMico will be of incalculable
U90 to her."
Ilarry Meredith sat loDg that night
before the snug, bright fire in his
snug little bachelor apartment mu
sing over his uncle's words.
lie had, met the two cousins, Ka
chel and Ituth Durr, at a quiet little
birth-day gathering at the house of a
frlenl, and had instantaneously felt
drawn toward the vlder one elder by
eighteen months. She was a beauti
ful blonde, while the other was rath
er of tbe brunette type.
During the three months which had
followed upon his Urst introduction,
Ilarry Meredith had contrived to see
the cousins several times a week, and
consequently fell deeper in love with
the golden-hulred lassie, even while
he was quite conscious of Ruth's
deeper character and stronger Intel
Sometimes he was almost tempted
to waver in his allegleace toward the
elder, and then he took himself wlt
very unnecessary stei nnegs to task.
To-night, however, he passed the
whole of the last few weeks in review
before his memory, and decided that
inaction was the very worst policy in
"This suspense must be put an end
to," ejaculated our hero, half aloud,
and then he smiled mlscheviously to
himself, as an idea came into his
"I'll do it," he thought, bitiog his
Hp. "Of course its merely for the fun
of the? thing. I have not the shadow of
a doubt that she is all she eetras, but
He was silent for a few minutes,
and then arose to prepare for slum
"They are polito enough to me as
the favored child of luxury. Now I
will ta.'ie measures to learn whether
this courtesy is genuinely from the
heart, or merely born of entity form
and adulation to wealth."
Bo our hero, layiug his head on his
pillow, dreamed of piivate masque
rade parties all night long.
Rucbel Durr and her cousin Ruth
were shop-girls In Savery & St. Clair's
great fancy store.
"Oh, dearl" sighed Rachel, one
morning as she took oft her bonnet in
tbe little dressing-room at the back
of the store and e-hook down her gold
en shower ot curls "how tired I am
of this horrid drudgery. How I ish
Harry Meredith would propose it he's
Ruth laughed as she smoothed
down her satin brown hair and tied
the bow cf crimson ribbon at her
"And what do you think of me, Ra
chel? I, who have no such brilliant
hopes of matrimony, to light up the
monotony of my daily toll."
Ruth shrugged her shoulders.
"I don't see bow you bear it so
patiently. I should die with vex

And then Rtehel knew why it was
that the ahip freighted with all her
hopes had drifted away, when it was
so near the haven.
Ono winter evening about fifty
years ago, a post-chaise with a single
goutleman inid It drove up to the
North of Scotland, where passengers
who were going to cross to Oikneys
uauully spent the night. The gentle
man, whom we will call Mr. MaoT
was the owner of a large estate, aud
an old house which bad belonged to
his family for hundreds of years, in
the mainland, or chief of the Orkney
islands, aud was now about to visit
his property. It was a blustering,
stormy night, but that only made
more pleasaut the cigar and glass of
champaigne, and the crackling of the
wood fire by which MacT. sat chat
ting with the landlord, who was an
old friend both of his father and him
self, and who was proud of euteitain
ing the "young laird," as he called
him, with his wildest tales of adven
ture on the sea. They did not, how
ever, sit late, for the Orkney packet
sailed very eatly in the mornlr g. and
MucT. soon found himself in his cozy,
weil-uppoii.ted little bedroom. Tbe
wlud was chanting a gland Berserker
melody, and the sea was roaring a
deep bass accompaelment. MauT.
Jovd those sounds, for they had of
ten been the lullaby of his childhood,
and he soon fell asleep. For some
hours he tdept without an image or
thought reaching his mind; but, at
length, when the morning was glim
mering gray la the East, a strange
f'ream came to trouble him. He
dreamed that he was in the undent
banq'ietlng hall of his old house, in
the Mainland, sitting at the head of a
very long table. The banqueting
ball was now in reality almost a ruin,
but Id bis dream MacT. saw it hung
with a hundred lights. The table
was filled on both ldo3, and bo
thought he glanced curiously down
its length to see who his guests were.
As he looked, he shuddered in his
dream. Those who sat at the table
with him were all his dead ancestors
for many generations back. He knew
their faces and dresses well from
their p rtraits In the picture gallery.
Next to him sat his own father, who
had died about a year before. And
at the bottom of the table sat a fair
haired man In a dress of skins, who
was a Noise chieftain, the founder of
the family. It seemed to him that he
sat for some minutes as if spell-bound,
while the spectators murmured to
gether in low, hollow tones. At
length they ull rose, aud slowly, one
by one. In turns, left the hall. Rut
before they went, each one paused at
the door, and turning, raised bis hand
iu a warning attitude, fixed his eyes
ou MacT., and said, iu a deep voice,
the word "Beware." "The packet
starts iu twenty minutes, sii," cried a
loud voice at tin door, rousing MacT.
suddenly from sleep. Confused at
first, yet soon reraemberiug where bo

hurriedly to dress himself. Being a

he did not much like the look ot tho
sea, and so he resolved uot to go till

The Diminatire Statesman.
New York Star.
The following aüecdote of Hon. Al
exander H. Stephens In an amusing il
lustration of the surprises which of
ten await people who reckon Intellect
by personal size.
The statesman haa had to bear tbe
eonsequences through his whole life
of a slight form and a boyish look,
but these deficiencies have had most
ly only an amusing and sometimes an
agreeable effect. In the earlier part
of his career, a great commercial
convention of many states was held
at Charleston, South Carolina, and
Mr. Stephens having been asked to
make the great speech of the occasion
consented to do so. His fame had al
ready eatended beyond the country
in which he lived, and expectation
was greatly excited at his arrival.
To avoid the crowds at the hotels
he asked twe merchants, who were of
the party, to engago him rooms at the
hotel where they were to stop, and in
due time he arrived with them. The
lady who kept the house. In great ex
citement, was engaged in looking out
for the guest, who was of as much
consequence, as a president. But he
had come. In the meantime the
tired statesman had thrown himself
on a lounge for the pui pose of repose,
and his two friends stood near him.
Tbe lady bustled in, and seeing, as
she supposed, a country lad, who had
come to see the sights and hear Mr.
S ephens, actually occupying the bet
place, and his shoes also on the icf,
