it Is not advisable for any of us to over

Ah Alpine Avalanrbe.
In the summer of 1863, a party of tourists,
while visiting the Alps, climbed, with
great difficulty, to an elevated and snow
covered plateau, In order to obtain a bet
ter view of Swiss scenery, and contrast the
beauty and richness, of mldtummt r below
with the bleakness and sterility of mid-
Vioter around and above them. In play
they rolled tbe moist snow into large balls,
tbeyjerowed It over the edge of tbe plateau.
In falling it struck softer scow, which Im
mediately gave away, and soon an ava
lanche wasteailng down tbe mountain
tide burying and destroying every thing
in its course, At the bandlul of snow be
came the lrrestable avalanche, so the back

The Stepping atone to Health.
The acquisition of vital energy is the
stepping stone t health. When tbe
system lacks vitality, the various organs
flag In their duty, become c'ironlcally ir
regular, and disease Is eventually Institut
ed. To prevent ttm unhappy state ot
thlnjrs, the debilitated system should be
built up by the use ot that inimitable
tonic, Hostetter's Stomach Bitters which
Invigorates the digestive organs, and In
sures the thorough conversion of food
Into blood of a nourishing quality, from
whence every muscle, nerve and fiber ac
quire unwonted supplies ol vigor, and the
whole system experiences the beneficial
effect Appetite returns, the system is
refreshed by healthful slumber, the
neryes grow strong and culm, the de
spondency begotten ot chronlo indiges
tion and an uncertain state of health dis
appears, and that sallow appearance of
tbe skin peculiar to habitual invalids, and
persons deficient in vital energy, is re
placed by a more becoming tinge.

Slight showers have fallen to-dav, but
there are now indications ot another

they were a week ago, knee deep
