It's 'Oh, for a quiet spot."
A lace where the waters sleep,
Alittlb farmi and a sheltered vale,
A home in the forest deep.
"A dog for the woodland game,
A dollar to spend or to -eep,
A black and a brown and a brindle cow,
A horse and a fock of sheop.
A duck and a go ina hen,
I Agpokb and a gander ton,
1A turkey proud-the poultry king,
A pair-of doves to coo.
- Ak pig and a yoke of steers,
A cat and a bird to crow,
A lace-for the comfort of them,
And a place for the rake and the hoe.
An axe fbr the lordly tree,
A plough for the st ubborn soil;
A faith in the promisn of good,
- And a strength and a will to toil.

The Vialue of P'recisionm in

The Editor of the 'Leader,' an
English paper, quotes a story which
nay serve to elueidate this:
The Mayor of Falaise having one
~ighmt run foul of a citizen of the
ood town of Falaise--in those days
~here was neither gas nor oil lamps
ho Mayor gave orders next morning
hat no citizen should go out at night
vithout a lantern. The following
uight, the Mayor, going his rounds,
an against the samte citizen:
'You havnt't read the ordinanlce,
youi stupid fellow,' said the Mayor in
'Yes I have,' said the Norman,
and there's mny lantern.'
'But there's no candle in it,' re
o'ined the Mayor.
-The ordinance satid nothing about
hbat,' replied the scrtupulous citizen.
TIhe next dlay alpeared a new or.
linance, enajoinaing the citizens to put
~andles in their lanterns. At night
'all the May or, anxious to see wheth
r his orders were obeyed, went his
-ound again, and once more run fouil
d the luckless b'ourgeois.
'I have you this time,' said the
\fayor- in a fury, 'you have nao Ian

'Excuse me, hero it is.'
'BEit no candle in it.'
'Oh, bait 1 have, and here it is,'
mad out of the lantern lie pulled a
andle unhighted
'But it isn't lighted, resumed the
xasperatedl Mayor.
'You said nothing ab~out lighting
he candles,' quickly rejoined the
aourgeois.
So another ord(inance had to bo
ssued, enjoining the citizens to light
:andles in their~ lanterns.

Whatever concerns the health and hapiness
of a people is at all times of the most va uable
importance. I take it for granted that every
person will do all in their pow er, to save the lives
of their children, and that every person will en
dcavor to promote their own health at all oacri
fices. I feel it to be my duty to solemnly assure
you that Woass, according to the opinion of
the most celebrated Physicians, are the primary
causes of a large majority of diseases to which
children and adutIlts are lhable ; if you have an
appetite continually changeable from onc kind
of food to another, Bad Blreath, Pain in the Sto
mach, Picking at the Nose, Hardness and Full
nes-s of the 1elly, Dry Cough, Slow Fever,
Pulse Irregular-renenber that all these denote
W onais. & you should at once apply the remedy
Ilobezqatck's Worma Syrup.
An article founded upon Scientific Principles,
compounded with purely vegetable substances,
being perfectly safe when taken, and can be
given to the most tender Infant with decided
beneficial effect, where Dowel Complaints and

the Tonic properties of my Worm Syru p are
such, that it stands without an equal in the cata
logue of medicines, in giving tone and strength
to the Stomach, which makes it an Infallable
remedy for those afflicted with Dyspepsia, the
astonishing cures performed by this Syrup after
Physicians have failed, is the best evidence ofits
superior efficacy over all others.
This is the most diflicult Worm to destroy of
vil that infest the human system, it grows to an
almost indefinite length becoming so coiled and
fastened to the Intestines and Stomach eflecting

SCIENTIFIC EVIDEN CE!
Baron Liehig in his celebrated work onrAni
nal Chemistry, says: "An artificial Digestive
Fluid, analogous to the Gastric Juice, may be
endily prepared from the mucous.semliran of
he stomahol of the Calf, in which varions arti'
lis of food, as ieat and eggs, will be softened,
:hnged and digested, just in the saine mnanher,
is they would be in the human stoknach.
Dr. Combe, in his valuable writings onikslo
l'hysiology of Digestion," observes that I
liminution of the due quantity of the'G'atri.
Iuice is a prominent and all-prevailing cause ov
Dyspepsia;" and lie states that " adisungnished
professor of tmedicine in London, who was se.
rerely afflieted with this complaint, finding
ivery thing else to fail, had recourms to-the
3astric Juice, obtained from the stomaghs of

Dr.John W. Draper, Professor of Chemistryi'
in lie Medical College of the University of"
New York, in his " Text Book of Chens" ,"
page 386, says,: " It has been a question wa
ler artificia digestion could be pe rformied-bot
