A Curious Geological Fact.
The excavation of • the State
House grounds brings out clearly
aome ef tbe operation* of nature
which are of interest to geologist?.
In tbe excavation conclusive evi
dence Is found tbat the river once
flowed where the State House
Will stand, and that it changed its
conn* and oame back three times
at least. The evidence is preserv
ed ia tbe earth itself. After a for
est bad grows up, tbe trees being
of a considerable site, the river
brought in sand and gravel, filling
up about the trees to a depth of two
or three feet. Then after the
trees decayed and disappeared, the
soil filled up the holes left in the
gravel. Then, after a long period,
another forest grew up, tbe river
again surrounded the trees with
sand to the depth of two or three
feet, tbe trees disappeared and
the holes left were filled up with
soil. The workmen are now using
the sand in preparing tbe founda
tions of the State House, and as
they take tbe sand and gravel
away tbe toil which filled tbe
holes left by tbe trees is left stand
ing, an exact reproduction of tbe
stumps of tbe trees, and so natural
it tbe representation that it is diffi
cult to believe they are models in
mud instead of real wooden
stumps — Indianapolis Sentinel.

A couple of chaps, whose years
will be few In tbe land if tbey do
not reform, entered a Gratiot ave
nue saloon five or six days ago,
and one of them explained to tbe
"Tbls fellow and me bave got a
bet. I bet htm $10 that Grant will
be the next President, and he
take* me. Here's the money; we
want you to keen Ituutil tbe bet ia
decided In 1880.''
"I vlll do ao" was the calm re
ply, as the money was raked in.
The strangers departed, each
vigorously asserting tbat he wasn't
afraid to trust the saloonlst, and
tbey were not seen again until
tbla afternoon. Then tbey ap
peared to remark:
"We have been talking the thine
over, and bave concluded to with
draw that bet. It has been souie
trouble to you, and if you hand
over $9 we'll" call it square."
"I' am no such mou as dot,"
replied tbe saloonist, as he opened
tbe till; "I makes no charge—here
ish der cash."
He threw cut tlie two fives they
had left, a sly twinkle in bis eye,
and as they slid out he called after
"Shentlemene, yen you makes
any more pets, bleasc call nrouot."
But tbey won't. The two bills

Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy
Cures by Us Mild, Soothing Effect.
Cures "Cold in Head" and Catarrh, or
AN OPEN LETTER—IT SPEAKS
ROCKPORT, Mass., April 2,1677.
Mr. Editou:— Having read in your pa*
per reports of the remarkable cures of ca
tarrh, I am Induced to tell " what I know
about catarrh," aud I fancy the "snuff"
and "inhaling tube" makers (mere dol
lar grabbers) would be glad if they could
emblazon a similar cure In the papers.
For 26 years 1 sullered with catarrh. Tko
nasal passages became completely closed.
"Snuff," "dust," "ashes," "iuhaling
tubes," and "sticks" wouldn't work,
though at Intervals I would Bniff up tbe
so-called catarrh snuff, until I became a
valuable tester for such medicines. 1
gradually grew worse, and no one can
know bow much I suffered or wbat a
miserable beiug I was. My head ached
over my eyes until 1 was confined to my
bed ior many successive days, suffering
the most Intense pain, which at one time
tasted continuously for 168 hours. All
sense ot smell and taste goje, sight and
hearing impaired, body shrunken
ana weaseneu nervous system so at
tered and constitution broken, and 1 was
hawking and spitting seven-eighths of the
time. 1 prayed for death to relieve me of
my suffering. A favorable notice In your
paper ot Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy in
duced me to purchase a package and use
it with Dr. Pierces Nasal Douche, which
applies the remedy by hydrostatic pres
sure, the only way compatible with com
mon sense. Well, Mr. Editor, it did not
cure me In tbroe-iourths of a second, nor
mono hour or month, but in less than
eight minutes i was relieved, and In
threo months entirely cured, and bave
remained sooversixteen months. While
using the Catarrh remedy, I used Dr.
Pierces Golden Medical Discovery to pu
rify my blood and strengthen my stom
ach. I also kept my liver active and
bowels regular by the use of his Pleasant
Purgative Pellets. If my experience will
Induce other sufferers to seek the same
means of relief, this letter will have un
swered its purpose.
Yours .ruiy, S. D. REMICK.
