How Indians Climbs Trees.
In South America even the weakest
woman may be, not uncommonly, seen
plucking the fruit at the tree-tops. If
the bark is so smooth and slippery that
they cannot go climbing, they use other
means. They make a hoop of wild
vines, and putting their feet inside,
they use it as a support in climbing.
The negro of the west coast of Africa
makes a larger hoop, round the tree,
and gets inside of it and jerks it up the
trunk with his hands, a little at a time,
drawing up his. legs after it. The Ti
hitian boys tio their feet together, four
or nve mcnes apart, witli a piece of
palm bark, and with the aid of this fet
ter go up tho cocoa palms to gather
nuts. The native women in Australia
climb the gum trees after opossoms.
Where" the bark is rough they chop
holes with a hatchet ; then one throws
about the tree a rope twice as long as
will go around it, puts her hatchet on
her cropped head, and, placing her feet
against the tiee and grasping the rope
with her hands, she hitches it up by
lems, ana pulls nerseit up tne enor
mous trunk almost as fast as a man will
climb a ladder.
Heart Disease. Many persons suffer
with heart disease without knowing it
suddenly they drop off, and their friends
are astonished, on a post mortem exam
ination, to learn that they died of heart
disease. Xne Heart, like tne brain, is
the seat of life its diseases are. of sev
eral characters. The most common are
valvular disease, fatty degeneration, and
functional derangement. If the liver
becomes deranged and digestion is im
paired, the heart, through sympathy
and juxtaposition, becomes abnormal.
The following symptoms indicate ap
proaching disease : palpitation, giddi
ness, faintness, nervous piostration, de
ranged digestion, vertigo, cold extremi
ties, etc., etc., for which the old school
will administer iron, opium, antimony,
mercury, and many other mineral pois
ons. Heart disease is a blood disease

Oysters when in perfection are from
five to seven years old. An oysterman
can tell the age of a bivalve by counting
the successive layers or plates overlap
ping each other, each of which is
a shoot, and indicates a year's growth.
Judging from the size and thickness
which some shells attain, an oyster may
be capable of arriving at the respectable
age of three score, ' and not be the Me-

A True Friend of Reform.
The Chicaero Tribune was about the first
newspaper of prominence in the United
States to cut loose from the leadership of
corrupt body of men who had obtained con
trol of the Republican party, and were drag
ging it down to the lowest depths of degrada
tion, and destroying the most vital interests
of the people. No doubt it cost tho Tribune
a pang to thus virtually cut loose from a party
which it had helped to organize, and of which
it had been one of the boldest and ablest
champions. But it chose to cling to the
principles of the party, rather than to the
party name without its substance. A terrible
outcry was raised at the time that the Tribune
had apostacized, and dire vengeance was vis
ited upon it by many Republicans who have
since got their eyes open, and now realize that
it was only timely leading, where they have
since Hastened to follow, rne inoune was
then, and is now, the fast friend of the pro
ducing classes of this country, and the foe of
corrupt ana assigning men. nence it is witn
pleasure we call attention to its prospectus in
another column, and commend it to all who
wish to subscribe lor an able, honest ana Tear
less journal that is fully up to the require
ments of the time. waukegan III.) jratnot.

THE LEADING NEWSPAPER IN
THE PAFJDK FOR THS
AND THE FIRESIDE.
PROSPECTUS FOR 1874.
The coming year promises to be the most erent-
rui in a political sense tnat we nave seen since tne
close of the war. The questions which have en
grossed and divided the public mind during the
past twenty years are rapidly passing away, aud
we find arowinie no in different narts of the coun
try a party called by various names in California
the Independent party. In Iowa the Anti-Monopoly
party, in Wisconsin the Reform party, in Illinois
the Farmers' Movement having a common pur
pose ana inspiration, ana exaioiting a strengtn
which proves that it answers one of the chief de
mands of the hour. The CHICAGO TRIBUNE will
give a large share of its attention to this NEW
MANIFESTATION OF PUBLIC SENTIMENT. It
1st. That the old party organizations are essen
tially corrupt ana xrauauient. uavmg no longer
any principles to carry into effect, they have
become mere business enternrlses. making a show
of opposition to each other, but really sharing in
the proceeds of profligate and dishonest legisla
tion. To suppose that any healthful reform can
flow from the pretended efforts of these worn-out
ana aemoraiizea partnersmps is aitogetner vain
2d. That the tariff system bow In vogue is a cun
ning device to rob the many for the benefit of the
few. and that its effect is to cause farm nroducts to
exchange for about one-half the quantity of foreign
or proieciea " goeas tuey wouia oinervue ouy.
3d. That railroads cannot exact more than a fair
rate of interest on the capital actually invested in
tbem, and that when, in addition, to this, they
claim dividends on watered stock and fraudulent
bonds, the State may rightfully Interfere for the
protection of the people; that unjust discrimina
tions Between amerent localities are in violation
of law and should be prohibited.
4th. That subsidies or bounties of money, land.
or public credit, to railway, steam shin, or other
corporations are flagrant abuses of the powers of
government, iraugnt witn tne gravest dangers to
tne people, ana tending to promote corruption,
extravagance, speculation, and financial disaster,

egar Bitters are a purely Vegetable
preparation, made chiefly from the na

the Sierra Nevada mountains of Califor

are extracted therefrom without the use
of Alcohol. The question is almost
daily asked, "What is the cause of the
unparalleled success of YnnsaAS Bit- '

the cause of disease, and the patient re
covers his health. They are the great
blood purifier and a life-giving principle,
a perfect Renovator and lnvigorator
of the system. Never before in the
history of the world has a medicine been
