Yesterday our local editor was sick.
He was stretched upon a spring mattress,
an J by his side laid an empty pill box,
labeled " Wood's Pills." When we ques

pered "That fellow llultz very good
doctor, but a d d bad speller." We
took the manuscript, and concluded the
sick local wanted It published verbatim,
etc., aud that's why the printers will not
have a chance to exhaust their knowl
edge of the art upon what will appear

of the opinion that it bullied our youth

William Winter, the artist, says he has
invented a style of photography that
will soon coino into general use. The
picture is taken on a thin, while, pliant
board, similar to India rubber. IV hen
tho photograph is first taken it presents
a palo rosy color, but after passing
through a chemical process, turns to a
clear dark shade, with jerfectly distinct
features and sharp outlines. The board
Is round and can be easily stretebed, en
that a very small picture can be made
Into one as large as a man's baud. The
stretching does not destroy the photo
graph, but adds to its liuUh, leaving a
splendid gloss. He says that it Is much
In favor with people with prodigious
ears and large uoscs.owing to its contract
ing qualities, the owner of tho picture
being able to contract a prominent ear or
nose on short order. A small man, witb
round face, can be made lean, and hla
lace to resemble a hungry Cassias, in tbe
twinkling of an eye, and yet the laee and
form will not lose their Identity.

For more than two-thirds of a life-time
Charter Oak Stoves have been a familiar
household word: daily gaining in popu
larity, and doing a vast deal of good In
enabling housewives to place betore. their
families every day three "square meals,"
well and quickly cooked, at a very small
cost of both fuel and labor, and we are
doing no more than our duty in advising
every housekeeper who does not have a
Charter Oak Stove to get one with the
least possible delay. (2!)

The Cincinnati Gaiette says : "The
tide ot travel is again turned toward the
river. People bave become tired of
dusty, noisy and bad-smelling cars, and
are willing to sacrifice a few hours of
time that might be gained by rail to the
borne comforts ol well appointed "steam
ers. Indeed, we know ot cases where
travelers have gone lifty miles out ot a
direct line tbat they might enjoy 200
miles of 6teamboat comfort. Within our
observation there has not been so gen
eral a disposition to travel by river as
now, and steamers' cabins have not been
so well filled with passengers as during
this centennial year. It will continue.
As business becomes more prosperous
and money becomes more pleutiful, peo
ple will seek comtort and travel by river.
