FBIDAY EVENING, JULY 15.
"There Were Great Men in Those
Days.''?An opinion was current in the last
century that our ancestors, at some time in
tlie past, were the equals or superiors in
size to the largest men now to be found. M.
Hetirion presented to the Academie des In?
scriptions, id 171S, a memoir on the varia?
tions in the size of man from the beginning
i?f the world till the Christian era, in which
Adam was given one hundred and twenty
three feet nine inche?, and Eve one bun?
dled and eighteen feet nine and three
fourths inches. But after the first pair, the
human race, in his imagination, suffered a
regular decrease, so that Noah was only one
hundred feet high, while Abraham phrank
down to twenty-eight feet, Moses to thirteen
feet, the mighty Hercules to ten feet eight
and a half inches, and Alexander the Great
to a bare six feet and a half. The commu?
nication, it is said, was received with en?
thusiasm, and was regarded at the time as a
"wonderful discovery" and a "sublime vis?
ion." The complaint about the degeneracy
of the human race is not new, but dates as
far back aa the time of Homer, at least; for
t he men of his day were not like the heroes
of whom he saDg. It is not confirmed, but
is contradicted by all the tatmible facts,
and these are not a few. Human re?
mains that are exhumed, after having
reposed in the grave for many cen?
turies, as in the Catacombs of Paris, have
nothing gigantic about them. The armor,
the cuirasses, and the casques of the war?
riors of the middle ages can be worn by
modem soldiers ; and many of the knights'
feuits would be too small for the cuirassiers
of the European armies; yet they were worn
by the selected men, who were better fed,
stronger, and more robust than the rest of
the population. The bnnee of the ancient
Gauls, which are uncover ed in the excava?
tions ol'tumuli, while they are of large di?
mensions, are comparable with those of the
existing populations of many places in
France. The Egyptian mummies are the re?
mains of persona of small or medium statue,
as are also the Peruvian and Mexican mum?
mies, and the nuinm'fs nnd hones
found in the ancient monuments of
India and Persia. And even the most
ancient relics we possess of individuals
of the human species, the bones of men who
lived in the Tertiary period, :in epoch the
remote antiquity of which goes back for
hundreds of centuries, do not show any im?
portant differences in the sizes of the primi?
tive and of the modem man.?M. Ghiyot
Daube?, in Popular Science Monthly for July.
??All .lion are Liars.""
said David of old. He was probably
prompted to make the above remark after
tryinc some unreliable catarrh remedy. Had
he been permitted to live until the present
day, and tried Dr. Sage's Remedy, ho might
have had a better opinion of mankind. We
elaim that no case of catarrh can withstand
the magic effects of this wonderful medicine.
One trial of it will convince you of it^ effica?

Tho Cassette has better facilities tor ob?
taining news than any paper outside of tin
national capital. Situated as it i.-s so close
to the great centro of new?, it enjoys dailj
the benefit of the Associated Press dis?
patches from every part of t he world ; hence
its patrons can read from its columns in tin
evening what has transpired that day in
every portion of our own domain as well as
from every part of the habitable globe.
Consequently iL is an every day occurrence
for the Gazette to publish telegrams from
the various European capitals twelve and
fifteen hours earlier than the morning pa
Another feature that, serves to make the
Gazette a great desideratum with mer
chants is its afternoon markt;!, reports Iron.

Correspondence from Washington, Kief:

of the Gazette.
The Gazette's circulation is steadily io
creasing, especially among people who eon
mill its advertising columns before purchas?
ing. Thai, this is self-evident may be infer?
red from the fact that a largo country edi

all over this section of country three tire es

whom f-end here or to contiguous cities to
make purchases. The advantages of ad?
