It will eradicate from the system every taint of

cured thousands of helpless cases where all other
known remedies failed.

is not a stimulating bitters which creates a fictitious

restore tbe stomach to a healthy action No person
suffering with Sour Stomach, He:idache, Cosiivt-Mess,
Palpitation of the Heart, Indigestion, Low Spirits,
etc., can take three doses without relief.

Allen' Strengthen! no t'ordlal has
never failed to cure mercurial diseases, pain in the

the great alterative effects tf this medicine.
Allen' Strenfitlienlnu Vortlial has
never tieen known to mil in giving immediate relief
in all diseases of the Kidneys and Urinary organs.
This medicine challenges the most profound atten

he distrusts every remedy. Several ol

AGUE AND FEVER."
Dr. C. Mf Lane's Liver Pills, in
cases of Ague and Fever, when
taken with Quinine, are productive of
the most happy results. No better
cathartic can be used, preparatory to,
or after taking Quinine. We would
advise all who are afflicted with this
disease to give them a fair trial.
For all Bilious derangements and as
asimple purgative they are ttnequaled.

AMERICAN MEAT FOR F.XULAXD.
Noiue Fori lie. laforraallou on
eat In a; Nubjeel.
A correspondent writes to the Ixiudon
Times: Having recently returned from
a tiroloneed trin to the far west of Amer
ica, and having made some inquiries in
Canada and tne I nited states about the
matter, I am in a position to supply ad
ditional information respecting the de
velopment of this new trade. The prin
ciple uiion which the plan of meat and
fruit preserva' ion is based is simply to
keep these articles at a temperature just
below freezing point. Theseven hundred
tons of meat brought over laat week was
landed in such good order as to have been
mmediately sold. Jn fact, such is the
quality of the meat, and such the condi
tion in which it is placed upon the mar
ket here that your correspondent was
told at Sinithfield market that Canadian
meat was sold here to met ropolilan butch
ers, and sold by them without distinction
of name, and alas! without distinction ol
price. The plan of bringing meat to
Knsland is-not onlv less exiiensive than
transporting live stock, but it is placed
on the market in better condition. Even
alter a voyage from the continent, or
even from Ireland, cattle must la? landed
n a feverish condition after the unnatural
experience of the discomfits of a sea voy
age. Killed on their pastures, and only
the marketable portion shipped to this
country, the quality of the meat is im
proved and the cost of the transportation
essened. lour correspondent, " l. j.
P.," points chiefly to Canada as the
main eouice of a meat supply for this
market, referring only incidentally to the
far west. Allow me, however, to say
that if we depended only on the domin
ion for a supply of beef sufficient to re
duce its price, we should, I leel confi
dent, be disappointed. Our hope, so far
as America is concerned, centers chiefly
in the pastures of the central and western
states, and especially in Kansas and
Texas and the eastern portion f Colora
do. The rich grasses of this region, its
mild climate and abundance 'of water,
give ii advantages over Canada and other
states exposed to similar severe winters,
in which stock has to be fed six out of
The Farmer says: A story was told us
last week in Smitnfield. A wealthy gen
tleman, having a west-end establishment,
had read so much of this American meat
that he wished to try a joint of it, and
that he might be sure to have what be
wanted, obtained an introduction to a
certain salesman in the metropolitan
market. Ol course he was received po
litely, and was promised that he should
have what he wanted. The salesman's
son deferentially asked the gentleman
who was hisbuicher. "Oh, so-and-so,"
was the answer, " we have no reason to
complain, as he sends us the best Scotch
beef he can luy." The salesman did not
laugh just then but be-did so soon as the
gentleman's back was turned, for he
knew that " the best Scotch beef " which
the butcher had supplied, bad for fully
eight months past, come all the way from
New York. We see that in the prov
inces the consumers are getting a fair ad
vantage out of the added supplies from
America. In London the bu'ehers have
reaped almost ail the advantage. Thev
have bought as cheaply 9S they could,
and sold as if they had bought at the
highet ruling rates. Wise in their gen
eration, they do not label the meat they

Spkixg Goods. The new spring wool
ens are the first importations displayed.
These are soft and yielding, and though
of pure wool, have scarce more weight
tuan the sheerest cambric, lne greatest
number are self colored in the small neat
figures that have been fashionable during
the winter, such as armures, basket-
woven tlesigns : raised checks and blocks,
stripes with quadrille bars -raised upon
them, matelasse, and damask figures
with open lace-like meshes woven
around them. Summer camel's-hair,
cashmere, and other twilled stuffs are
rhown, but diagonals are no longer nov
elties, and the small figures will have the
preference. Experienced merchants say
that gray will be more worn than it has
been since brown replaced it two years ago,
and that fawn, steel and drab shades will
be popular ; also that the fancy for myr
tle green and navy blue will continue,
especially when these colors are combined
with white in tiny checks smaller than
pin heads, and in various oriental combi
nation bath of figures and colors.
De Beges. De beges are no longer
plain or merely twilled, but are imported
in the stylish small figures, armure9,
stripes, checks and metelasse, patterns in
shaded gray or brown. Raised irregular
squares are fceen in de bege stuffs, and
the fine cashmere de beges with thick
twill is provided in abundance in the
blue steel shades that were so difficult to
find last summer. These will be eho.-en
for the first spring suits, and will be used
as traveling and morning dresses all
through the summer.
Ciieck8 and Stripes. Checked wool
ens will be worn again, but the U-st qual
ities will be finer even than pin head
checks, because these very fine checks
cannot be copied bv domestic manu
facturers. Thefce will be chosen in myr
tle green and white, ink blue and while,
gold on brown, and of cour.-e black with
white. These remain in favor lor misses
and young girls, and will be displayed in
both double and single widths. There
are also checked fctripes witb solid stiipos
between, or else brown; cardinal and
white are the colors.
How to Make Pkkcalk 1 'remits.
Ladies who make up theirsummer ward
robes in February and March usually be
gin with wash dresses, leaving tiicir
handsomest suits to the last, in order to
get the latest fashions, hence novelties
for the wash goods art- the first to be
provided by the importers, and we
iaten to record these. Ihere will Ie
both polonaises and basoues with over
skirts. Two kindsof percaleare required
for most suits; one of these is of solid
color, the other is in stripes, sprigs, or in
India designs with borders. Ihere are
long simply shaped princesse polonaises
of indigo blue percale, striped with gold
and white, woin, over a plain blue per
cale skirt, of which the merest glimpses
of its two or three narrow gathered ruf
fles are shown, as the long polonaise has
for itaonlv draping two pleats in the
middle of the bacr below the long iviar
guerite corsage. On its side form, and
quite far back, is a large square plain
blue pocket, with two ru flies across the
ton. and a strap ot pale blue ribbon tied
across the centre and finished with long
lo ps aud ends. The striped sleeve has
similar trimmings lor cutis, lhe plain
blue collar is turned over iii English
points in front, lhe button'1 down the
entire front are blue vegetable ivory, or
else smoked pearl, sewed on witb eye
The trimming around the bottom is a
bias blue band, piped with gold-color,
and finished with cotton fringe of mixed
blue, cold and white. A similar suit has
a polouai-e of brown percale striped with
cream and white, and trimmed on the
pockets, wrists, and down the entire
front with long-looped lows of cardinal
Another polonaise, with clinging
princesse front, and the.back draped and
hanging in square tabs, is of India red
figures on navy blue giound. There is a
plastron of plaiu blue down the front,
and the border is of solid blue. The
plain blue percale skirt has three scanti
ly gathered ruffles bound with cardinal
red. In the same fashion is a polonaise
of wide blue and cream stripes, to which
diagonal lines are added, a solid blue
border edges the pilonaise,. and the
flounces of the dark blue skirt are bound
with pale blue. The collar is standing
behind, and the deep points turned over
in front have the corners rounded.
The basques ani overskirts are of sim
ple shape. The basque is longer in front
and back than on the hips, and is very
high about the neck. The overskirt is
long and straight in front, and shorter
behind. The striped and cretonne per
cales are pretty for these, and are trim
med with pleatings or gathered ruffles of
color, headed with wide white Smyrna
lace or English embroidery on white
muslin. Down the front and on the sides
are both made of two materials used on
the dress. Harper' Bazar.

Although you will know all about the
opening of parliament before this letter
reaches you, it is very unlikely that any
thing will have happened to clear away
the confusion which at present surrounds
the political parties. Seldom has a
session opened amid so much doubt and
misgiving on either side. Many mem
bers of the opposition are, of course,
eager to attack the ministry but upon
what ground The answer seems simple
the eastern question. I do not myself
believe that there is so much to be made
out of that as many people try to per
suade themselves. I think you will
find that the public generally are not
dissatisfied with the acts of the govern
ment, although they may not approve of
the words of some members of it. After
all, what was there for England to do ?
Canon Liddon and his clique says that
she ought to have joined with Russia in
expelling the Turks from Europe. Rut
I have not myself come across anybody
who holds that opinion, or who seems to
think it at all desirable that England
should plunge into an unnecessary and
sentimental war. A ministry which had
allowed the country to drift int war,
would have been swept away in a storm
of popular passion.
A nation may have great resources left
within it. but it is scarcely fitted to enter
into a life-and-death struggle with a
foreign power at the moment when its
trade is almost paralyzed. And that is
the condition of England at this moment.
In all the large manufacturing centers
of the country we hear of nothing but
depression and the disappearance of bus
iness mills working on half time only
or altogether closed, factories shut up,
Iarire establishments which are not re
ceiving now as many orders in a year as
they used to recieve in a single month.
Where are the "cotton lords" to-day ?
They seem to have suddenly become ex
tinct. The great trade upon which they
flourished is withering away. The change
has come with startling suddeness, and
no ono yet seems to fully realize the im
mense consequences which it must cany
with it. However, no one appears to
understand what has brought the catas
trophe to pass. " It can only be a teni
lorarv depression," said a manufacturer
frern Oldham to me the other day ; " the
surplus goods will be cleared off the
mnrtet and then trade will revive
and then trade will
again." I was sorry to discourage hiin
by giving him reasons for holding a dif-
The cotton trade, in my opinion, is
Cashing from England, not temporarily,
ut permanently, and no one who is en
gaged in it yet realizes the fact. And
what has produced the revolution ? The
great and silent advance made in cotton
manufacture on your side of the Atlan
tic. I need not tell you that hitherto
England has held practically a mono
poly in this branch of industry. She
supplied the world. Rut now where-
ever a piece of English cotton can enter
a market another piece ot American cot
ton is to be seen side by side with it al
ways as good, sometimes lictler, in qual
ity, and low price. This last fact is one
for which I was unprepared when I le
gan to make inquiries into the subject.
Rut a fact it is ; and it is fatal to the re
covery of English trade.
There is a common, yet useful, kind of
cotton gods much used in families where
there are young children. It is of A mer
ican manufacture. We tried to get it
over here last summer, but it was not
generally known. The goods which most
nearly approaches it were pom coarse
vnd dearer. At last we found a shop
where it was imported from America,
and there the sale for it was increasing
every day. People who saw it at once
said, " This is better than English cotton,
aLd the price is lower. Where do you
get it from?" They were astonished to
hear that it came from the mills of New
Here, then, we are beaten and under
sold in our own speciality, and actually
at our own doors. I can go across the
road and buy lietter and cheaper Amer
ican than English cotton. In India, also,
we are elbowed out of the field by the
same keen and indefatigable rivals. Who
would have believed ten years ago that
such things were sissible? To be can
did, there are many who do not believe
it now. It is an unwelccme phenomenon,
and they are determined not to see it.or
try hard to explain it away. Rut there
it" is, destined, aa I have said, to make
mighty changes in the whole current of
Fnglish trade and prosperity. I find
plenty of yieople talking about the land
question and the eastern question, about
the misdeeds of the ministry and the
suffering Bulgarians. Rut I hear no one
discussing anorganic change in a branch
of English trade which was once thought
vital to the welfare of the country. Per
haps we can do without it ; some other
trade or manufacture may spring up to
take its place. Rut one thing I am cer
tain that the palmy days of the cotton
trade in England are over. It is not a
mere partial subsidence which we see
it is dissolution. When that truth
omeato be recognized, as it must one
day be, vou will find that the attention ot
the people of this country is fixed less I
nnon the Bulgarian peasantry than upon
the sufferings of the unemployed and
poor in their own land.
Social Life and Legislation.
Among the practical difficulties of the
day there is none greater than that of
steering between the danger ol over-leg
islation on the one nana, ana me pe
dantry of no legislation on the other. It
confronts us in every department of so
cial life. There are men who call ujon
us to prescribe for the whole world in
what kind of houses they shall live,
what they shall eat, what they shall
learn, and by and by it will come to be
added, as ol yore wherewithal they
shall be clothed. People sjiend too much
on their dress, they are negligent of the
opportunities of education, they drink
too much, tney eat ioou mat is mjunoun,
they are careless of ventilation, and

not correct and, at leant, try to suppress
these evils? limlon Timr.

with apparatus for laying hold of the ice
