"Wo are now In the midst of what Is
known as tho "Iliirvcst Moon." It be
gan with the full moon, which occurred
on Saturday, 22d Inst, itderlvves its
name from tho agricultural economy of
England, and tor several successive
evenings w ill rise at netirly the samo hour,
pouring Its lull scope, nffordlmr luioband
men an opportunity toextend his harvest
of corn, fodder, etc., Into the night.
Our readers havo no doubt no
ticed lor three cveuings the rising ol the
moon at near the same time. Thearrival
ot the sun ut the autumnal equinox, when
the moon Is In the ascending node ot Its
orbit and entering the First point ot aries,
will produce a harvest moon under the
most favorable circumstances. When
the lull moon occurs, as it did this year,
'i: the 2i 1 of September, and Is rising iu
the cast, the sun will bo setting iu the
west in the autumnal equinox."

Undoubtedly the greatest modern dis
covery In medicine is DaCosta's Radi
cal Cure tor dyspepsia, sick headache,
sour stomach,, costlyeness, biliousness,
loss of appetite, distress after eating, and
all disorders caused by indigestion or a
deranged liver. Its results are astonish
ing, and sure relict is guaranteed In
every casa where it is faithfully used. It
tones up the stomach, regulates the
liver, restores tho natural appetite,
strengthens tho delicate and expels all
morbid humors trom the system. Ty
phoid and bilous fever might, in almost
every oase, be prevented by its timely
use. Trial size 23 cents. A very few
doses will relieve, and a little persever
ance cure you. Sold by Barclay Bros.

Mlnsma Rendered Powerless.
The most certain way to render pow
erless the tulaematlc vapors which pro
duce chills and lever and other malarious
disorders, Is to fortify the system against
t iem with that matchless preventive of
periodic fevers, Ilostetter's Stomach Bit
ters. The remedial operation of the
Bitters is no less certain than their pre
ventive ellects, and they may be relied
upon to overcome cases of lever and ague
which resist quinine and the mineral
remedies of the pharmacopoeia. Dys
pepsia, constipation, bilious complaints,
rheumatic ailments and general debility,
likewise rapidly yield to their regulative
and tonic influence. They are an incal
culable blessing to the weak and nervous
of both sexes, an excellent family medi
cine, and the be.-t safeguard which the
