Hepatitis, or Liver Complaint,
DYSrEPSIA AND SICK ItEADACIlS.
Symptoms of a Diseased Liver.
PAIN in the right side, under the edge
of the ribs, increases on pressure ;
sometimes the pain is in the left side ;
the patient is rarely able to lie on the left
side ; sometimes the pain is felt under
the shoulder-blade, and it frequently
extends to the top of the shoulder, and
is sometimes mistaken for a rheuma
tism in the arm. The stomach isaffect
cd with loss of appetite and sickness ;
the bowels in general are costive,
sometimes alternative with lax ; the
head is troubled with pain, accompan
ied with a dull, heavy sensation in the
back part. There is generally a con
siderable loss of memory, accompan
ied with a painful sensation of having
left undone somethingwhich ought to
have been done. A slight, dry cough
is sometimes an attendant. The pa
tient complains of weariness and de
bility ; he is easily startled, his feet are
cold or burning, and he complains of a
prickly sensation of the skin ; his spir
its are low; and although he is satis
fied that exercise would .be beneficial
to him, yet he can scarcely summon
up fortitude enough to try it. In fact
he distrusts every remedy. Several o
but caies have occurred where few of
them existed, yet examination of the
body,after death, has shown the livkr
to have been extensively deranged.
' AGUE AND FEVER."
Dr. C. MFLaxe's Liver Pills, in
cases of Ague and Fever, when

book-keeper, at the corner of Third and
Walnut atreets, whore residence is on
Gilbert avenue, two doors above Syca
more street. Walnut Hills. About one
o clock yesterday afternoon he was sum
moned from his place ot business by a
telegram irom the Walnut station to the
officers at Hammond street, but did not
know tne nature of the summons until
within a square or two of his own house.

erable pride. The dosr was not con
sidered safe to run at large, and therefore
was kept chained in the yard back of his
house. He was sometimes cross to
members of the family, but had never
attempted to bite any of them, and
sometimes was very good-natured. Mr.
Boote's little daughter, only five years
of age, was in the habit of feeding this
dog, which yesterday proved himself to
De one ot tne most savage jof monsters.
Aftet dinner was over the little girl
took the remnants of the meal as usual
to feed the brute. She had iust eot
within the limits ol the dog s chain,
when he flew at her, and seizing her by
the throat, pressed her to the earth, and
commenced tearing her tender flesh in
the most terrible manner. The poor
little child could not even scream while
the ferocious beast was tearing her
throat, her cheeks, her nose, her scalp
and breast. The flesh was literally torn
down to the bone on the entire lett side
of her face, and mangled most horribly.
Ail tins the agonized mother saw from
the kitchen window. She ran into the
yard screaming " My God I my child 1 "
and was fast advancing on the dog, when
he released his hold ot the mangled child
and flew at the mother, but she fortu
nately evaded him. Police officer John
Thomas, where residence adjoins that of
Mr. lioote, was providentially at home
eating his dinner, and when he heard
Mrs. Boote 8 screams ran out into the
yard. Looking over the fence, he took in
the situation at once, and in an instant
was in his neighbor's yard, with his pis

A South American Bull-Fight.
Of course, when in Home one must
learn the customs of the Roman", and
so I was induced to vunt a grand bull
fight, the proceeds of which go toward
the support of a hospital. It is a task
of some difficulty to obtain a seat in the
Lima Bull ring, there beiDg three differ
ent admission lees that must be paid ere
the seat can be counted secure. After
submitting to this slight extortion,
looked around tne building, it is a cir
cular edifice, said to be the largest in
the world, and can accommodate 10,000
people. Ihe day of my visit being a
feast day, the place was crowded with
the elite nnd poverty of Lima, for it
would be considered a falling from grace
should the chola not attend the bull
fight, even if he should go hungry for a
week to accomplish this. J here was a
fair sprinkling of the foreign population,
and many a beauty whos nerves would
have shrunk from contact with a mouse,
now impatiently waited for the bloody
struggle between man's ingenuity and
THE FIRST TO APPEAR.
The capeadores, picadoaes and mata
dores were the first to appear, the former
mounted and plainly dressed, the last
two gorgeous in colors, and with bright
red capes jauntily thrown across the arm.
Ihey marched slowly around the circle,
and it was a study to note the the cold
glitter of their eyes, that seemed full of
an exjectancy that only blood could sat
isfy. One could very plainly see that to
these men the value of human life was
worth only the pleasure its taking would
But though so willing to take life,
they are provided with numerous places
of reluge should the bull press them too
hard, and thus they can safely employ
all their skiil on a foe placed at great
disadvantage. After the authorities had
been saluted, a bull, maddened by hun
ger and other tortures, came bounding
into the ring, and with wild eyes glaring,
stood and watched his foes. Soon a ca
peadore approached, and by provocation
sought to highten the fury of the beast,
which rushed at full speed upon horse
and rider ; but just as the sharp horns
seemed about to gore the former, the
capeadore, by a dexterous movement,
eluded the blow, and his companion took
his place, so, drawing the danger lrom
one to the other, they kept the bull
rushing wildly around the ring, and
alter a time gave place to the picadores
TANTALIZING THE BULB.
The excitement increased with their
appearance, for these men are full of a
dare-devil courage, and delight in the
wild fury of the bull, tantalizing him in
all the ways they can, and flitting about
him like gorgeous demons, often Hying
across the circle with the bull clone at
their heels, and gaining a place of safety
just as you think them doomed to des
truction. If the beatt shows any signs
of faltering, darts are thrown into nis
neck, and he again grows furious, to be
met by an increase of torment from his
After this has gone on some time, the
leading matadore asks permission to kill
the bull, which being granted, he throws
his cape over his sword, and engages the
attention of his foe. Now comes the
struggle between brnta cunning and
brute force, and the excitement grows
intense, though to me it had a sickening
horror attached that destroyed all
thought of pleasure. Keeping close to
the animal's side, and carefully watching
his chance, the matadore at Lost casts his
cloak about his horns, and while the
poor brute is battling with this unsub
stantial foe, thrusts his keen sword up to
the hilt through the fierce throbbing
heart. A stagger, a heavy thud, and
the bravos tell that the first actisended,
the bull qeing quickly drawn away by
fo urgayly caparisoned horses.
Not always do these tragedies have a
one-sided ending, Often both men and
horses are carried away dead, and yet
this does not stop the sport. The death
of one bull was enough to satisfy me,
however, and I left the ring with my
estimation of theSpanish American con
siderably strengthened, for he has never
been a favorite of mine.
A BLOODY ROW.
At a bull fight in Callao, not long ago,
a rather amusing and sanguinary aflair
occurred. The matadore deputed to kill
the bull having made several ineffectual
thrusts, was approached by a chola, so
drunk that he could but stagger, who
took the sword from him and determined
to do the job. This the bull-fighters ob
jected to, and they tried to persuade the
man to retire from his perilous position,
keeping the bull cornered in. the other
part ot the ring. Their words incensed
the man, who began hacking at them
with his sword, and then the police were
called in. The rough partot the audience,
who would have much liked to see the
fellow gored to death, now took his part
against the police, and, lumping into the
ring, began assaulting tbem with stones.
Pistols were produced, and then a troop
of dismounted cavalry were marched in,
and the fray began in earnest.
Swords and pistols were freely used,
and fragments of clothes and bodies were
soon flying aliout in all directions. At
last the bull broke away from the mata
dores who had been guarding him, and
charged through the crowd, paying no
respect to person, and having impaled a
negro by the back of the vest, carried
him around the ring, the poor fellow bel
lowing wildly far mercy ; even this did
not stop rHe iray, and it wasonly by their
riles with ball cartridge that the troops
managed to restore order, and got the
audience quiet. This done, the wounded
were dragged out to the hospital, and
tbe performance sgain began.
Truly, a bull fight is a wonderful man
ifestation of the intelligence and refine
ment of the modern Spanish American.

Another American Prima Donna.
Mis Blanche, second daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. E. L. Uavenport, is engaged at
San Carli theatre, Naples, asprima donna
assoluta, for the months of May and
June. She has studied in Milan for
years to qualify herself for the position
she is now about to assume under very
flattering auspices. She refused to ap
pear in this esuntry when here last fall,
and now she will make her trial effort in
the finest theatre in the world. Artists
are examined by a csmmitte of forty no
bles before they can appear there, and in
the case of Miss Davenport they waived
the rule that requires the artists to have
suns in three star theaters. Many art
ists of great ability have labored unbuc
cessful for the honor conferred upon our
young countrywoman, and her many
friends on and off the stage will rejoice
at her good fortune. This wili probably
lead to a London ddntt, and that means
all the world. Philadelphia Time.

Two Scotch clergymen, one a mem
ber of the English church and the other
of the Scottish Episcopal church, have
taken the stand that the theater, if right
for their people, can not 1k wrong for
themselves. They attended a banquet
given in Edinburgh about the 1st oi
March in honor of a thcatricnl manager.
and one of them made a pleasant re-
sjionse- to a toast to the clergy. lie
argued that if the theater hud lost lavor
in the eyes of good people, it was simply
because good people lind deserted its
walls. The people woul 1 have amuse
ments of some sort, and it was for tho
clergy, by their presence, to keep those
amusements pure. Tho argument may
surprise American preachers who have
fallen into tne habit of denouncing tne
theater, especially in their evening ser
mens to young people. One thing is
certain, if the clergymen would go to
the theater occasionally their presence,
while it might not elevate the drama,
it would render their criticisms from the

Chronicle publishes the following notice,
which only requires a statement of tho
relationship with Adam and Eve to
make it complete: ".Married, on Thurs
day, the 1st of February, at Kathaspeck,
by the Rev. James Beed, rector of Wex
ford, Henry Brown, Esq., liatlijarney,

A few of the English writers on scien
tific topics have from lime to time flung
ridicule upon those who accept the the
ory that there is a connection lietween
the activity of the sun's surface, ns
shown in sunspots, and the weather of
this earth. The theory appears, how
ever to be gaining converts. Dr. W. W.
Hunter, director general of the statistics
of India, has recently contributed new
arguments for its support. His re
searches embraces the records of sixty
four years at Madras. Tho cycle of in
crease and decrease of sunsKts is taken
at eleven years. Within each of these
eleven-year periods the minimum of
rainf.ill, forty inches, occurs in the lust,
first and second years; tho maximum,
fifty-four incl ei, in the fitih and sixth
years. Within the whole period, the
five years of minimum sunspots have had
an average of only thirty-seven inches
rainfall less by eleven and a half inches
than the average of the locality. Six
severe famites have taken place during
the sixty-four years, caused by the
drouths of the minimum years and di
rectly following them ; the six drouths
each occurring during the last, first or
second year ol an eleven-year period.
These researches must prove of great
value, since they will enable the recur
rence of East Indian famines t le fore

A Spirited Adventure.
" Who's there?" There was no answer,
and tho queer noise, stopped. " Any
body there?" No answer. "It must
have lieen a spirit," he said to himself.
"I must f a medium. I will try."
(Aloud.) " If there is a spirit in the
room, it will signify the samo by snyinir
aye no, that's not what I mean. If
there is a spirit in the room, it
will please rap three times." Three
very distinct raps were given in the di
rection of the bureau. " Is it the spirit
of my sister?" No answer. " Is it tho
spirit of my mother?" Three raps.
"Are you happy?" Nine raps. "Io
you want anything?" A succession of
very loud raps. " "Will you give me any
communication if J get up?' No an
Hwer. "Shall I hear from you to-morrow?"
Raps very loud in the direction
of the door. "Shall I ever see you?"
Then raps came from outside the door.
He waited long for an answer to his last
question, but none came. The spirit
had gone ; and after thinking about the
extraordinary visit, ho turned over and
fell asleep. On getting up iu the morn
ing he found that the spirit of his
mother had carried off his watch and
purse, bis trowscrs, and his great-coat
down stairs in the hall.
Some years ago a Highlander being in
the city of Glasgow for the first time,
one fine morning rm amazed at the
stream of people flocking from all quar
ters toward the end of the green, w here
they hanged criminals. He ssked a pas
senger what they expected to see down
there. "A man is to bo hanged this
morning," was the answer. "O, poor
man! nnd what are they going to Lang
him for?" "Sheep stealing, sir." "Tut,
tut! stupid muni Why did he not buy
them and never pay fur them?"
"Will you take su'thing?" suid a
festive chap, as he catered one of the
city saloons. "Ikm't care if I do,"
drawled out two or three " setters' as
they iidviiii' ed towards the bar. "Well,
