HOLER A is rapidly mov
ing westward and will soon
appear in this country. In
order to prevent disastrous
effects from its ravages every
preventive should be em
ployed, and the system
should be in perfect condi
tion. At this season of the
year the system is in a weak
state and easily susceptible
to dangerous disease, i'ain
in the back, weariness, las
situde, headache, dyspepsia,
indigestion, kidney and liver
complaints are but the result
of neglect. During the last
visitation of cholera to this
country no medicine was
found equal to Mishler's
Herb Bitters, both as a pre
ventive and cure, and it has
been equally successful in
all the diseases above men
tioned. It renews and in
vigorates the blood, restor
ing to health and strength,
and thus shielding the
system from disease.

Whose hum was stunt, and chubby, but whose

And, by using some planks and kegs (procured

We found ourselves iu readiness to go ahead
with the show.
We always had a kid or two to help about tho
(When I look back to that lonely night, all
seems plain as a printed page),
And that night it chanced that we got the kid
with looks sad and forlorn,

Of the little gang that formal the show, nix of
us were in the band,
And b.-si lo wo bad a rope-walker the finest in

That I'm- a while we didn't think 'twould pavus

hall was nearly full.

We never failed to knocli'eiu out, and we did it
that night too ;

Interesting Tests Made by the Government
Dr. r.ilward O. Ijovc, th Analytical
Chemist for tho Government, has made
some interesting experiments as to the
comparative value of baking powders. Dr.
Love's tests were mado to determine what
brands are tho most economical to use, and
as their capacity lies in their leavening
power, tests were directed solely to ascer
tain the available gas of each powder. Dr.
Love's report gives the following :

One of tho "ink slingcrs" of the Xnrs
received through the mail last Saturday a
package addressed to him, which aside from
the address bore upon tho wrapper the
word "personal." With a light heart and
uiiiiblo fingers he opened the aforesaid
package, thinking that some friend had
sent him ft late copy of some interesting
newspaper. The contents proved to bo
several sections of tho Chicngo News, cut

and there an aruihole, a place for a rullle

wits' end to understand the wherefore of
his receipt of this coiigloinorato mass of
Chicago Newscs. At last, snugly tucked
away between the sheets, ft note was dis
covered which commenced in the words
following: "Dear Sister Anna: This is

No More Introductions in Boston.

There are some old families here, the
bearers of pro-revolutionary names and
pedigrees, who carry the absurd new no
tion to a ridiculous extreme. Many of
lliesc families are as poor as church niii-c,
and have no little trouble to scrapes along
in their shabby gcutility, but the way they
hold up their social superiority is some
thing truly agonizing. 1 heard a bright
anil cultivated young lady telling of her
experience under one of these ancestral
roof trees the other evening, and, as she is
sensible enough to enjoy the absurdity of
the wholo pretentious custom, it gives her
friends no little healthy amusement.
