Charts, Portraits aud Diagrams.
This is Indeed a vaiuauio nook; one
that will give all our people proper ideas
ot the growth and character ot our nation
and its free institutions. Tho work is
divided into historical periods before the
discovery; next to be treated Is the period
of voyage aud discovery; the third divis.
ion Is the colonial period, which is treated
with the adoption ot the constitution,
which ushers us into the national period.
The author evidently knows no north or
south, no east or west in affection.
This volume will supply a want long
felt. It has often been a matter of regret
that wc have hitherto had no history of
our great country at once comprehensive
and popular. Between the brief and un
satisfactory school histories on the one
baud, and the bulky volumes on the
other, there has been a great gap a gap
which Is filed by this work, Here we
have a delightful narrative In which every
material lact is set down without those
ry details of scholastic research which
renel rather than attract the mass of
readers. Our space will not permit a
more extended review, but our exarain-
tion of the book justifies us in saying
that it is altogether superior to any other
history ot the United States ever publish-
In addition to the excellence of its
subject matter Its mechanical appearance
superb, beautifully printed and ele
gantly illustrated, it also possesses the
dditional requisite of cheapness. We
have never seen so valuable a work oiler-
d tor so little money, and we heartily
recommend It to all.

From land left saturated by needing
floods, aud Irom pools stagnating In sun
ken lots on the outskirts ot cities, rises
vapor pregnant with disease. Its name
Is miasma, and it Is laden with the seeds
of fever and ague, bilious remittents, and
ofher malarial disorders. How to cops
successfully with these destructive mala
dies Is problem solved more than a
quarter of a century ago by the discovery
ot Hostctter's Stomac i Bitters, which
has proved Itself an absolute specific for
miasmatic disease In every form, Its sure
preventive, and a superb invigorant aud
general alterative of disordered condition
of the system. Irrefraglble evidence to
prove this fact has been accumulating tor
years, and scarcely a day passes without
some fresh corroboration of It. Eminent
physicians have, after a thorough test,
pronounced the article perfectly emea
cious and absolutely pure, and the
American people long ago adopted it as
heir favorite household remedy.

To my Patron and lh Public I
I take this method ot introducing to
you my now place ot doing business in
the future. Keason and experience
has demonstrated to you and I
that no bouse that sells on
a credit can compote with those doing
business on a cash system. This feMng
true I have resolved to do a strictly cash
business In the future. I propose to re'
dtice the price of all my goods from 8 to
15 per cent., thus giving the buyer tho
advantage ot going to market and buy
ing where goods are sold tor cash
only. Goods will be de
livered to any part of the city as nsnal.
From this day we will have no pass book
accounts, nor keep any books In onr
house of any kind. Thanking you for
past favors, we would ask a continuance
ot the same under our new system.
