Why th Eer.
From the Indianapolis Times.
Some years ago when the writer
was a rejtorter upon an Eastern paper,
it devolved on him to write for the
same edition an account of the presen
tation of a cold-headed cane to the
R-v. Dr. Mudge, the clergyman of
the place, and a description of a new
hog-killing machine that had just been
put in operation at the factory. Now.
what made the J lev. Dr. Mudge mad
was this: The inconsiderate buccan
eer who made up the form and when
we went to press, something like this
was the appalling result :
"Some of the Itev. Mudge's friends
called on him yesterday, and after a
brief consultation the unsuspecting hog
was seized by the hind legs and slid
along the tteum until he reached the
hot water tank. His friends explain
ed the object of their visit and pre
sented him with a handsome gold
headed butcher, who grablted him by
the tail, and swung him around, and
in less than a minute the carcass was
in the water. Thereuixm became for
ward and said there were jmes when
the feelings overiowered one, and for
that reason he would not do more
than attempt to thank those around
him for the manner in which so huge
an animal was cut in fragments was
astonishing. The doctor concluded
his remarks, the machine seized him,
and, in less than it takes to write it,
the hog was cut into fragments and
worked into delicious sausage. The
occasion will lie remempered by the
doctor's friends as one of the most de
lightful of their lives. The best pieces
can lie obtained for fifteen cents per
pound, and we are sure those who sat
under his ministry will rejoice to hear
that he has been so handsomely treat
ed." Mad! Well, about nine o'clock that
morning the office had been abandon
ed by every man but the advertising
clerk, and he ascended to the roof and
rolicd himself in boiler iron, so that he
eould see the clergyman tearing
around down in the street with his
congregation, all wearing the panoply
of war, and carrying butcher knives
and things. The next day we apolo
gized, but the doetor stopped his sub

a threatening male voice, about mid
night, in a very, dark September
night, 1851, in front of a small and

most brutal expression of countenance,
collared him, and, with a savage oath,
"Riordan, I ought to cut your
throat, sneaking scamp that j'ou are."
"For (Jod's sake, Scribner, don't

At the same moment Scribner, who

A Parrot's Friendship.
Birds and amimals often form
friendship for other animals not of
their own family, and show a deep
and sincere attachment. Mr. Adol-
phus Saxc, a celebrated inventor of
military musical instruments, had a
little green parrot, sickly, weak, and
almost featherless. His work room
was full of brass filings and unhealthy
odors. Accordingly lie placed his old
favorite's cage in a large Judas-tree
that grev near; the porrot was adroit
enough to open her cage and would fly
to the upper branches and enjoy her
lilterty, returning from time to time to
her cage for food. As the cage was of
ten ojieii and untenanted, a sparrow,
with the usual modesty ofits kind, used
to enter and help itself. He got so
much at home that even when the
parrot returned he would not fly off
out keep on ea'ing as though lie ware
the owner, not an invited gues; the
parrot not only did not resent the in
trusion, but formed a strong friendship
for the sp irrow, which was evidently
lec-iprocated. When the parrot felt
lonely and wanted company, ho Sul

FOR THE CUKE OF
Hepatitis, or Liver Complaint,
ovsrcrsiA and sicrt keadacik.
Symptoms of a Diseased Liver.
PAIN in the right side.under the edge
of he ribs, increases on pressure ;
sometimes the pain is in the left side ;
the patient israrelyabletolieon the left
side ; sometimes the pain is felt tinder
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 is affect
ed 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
bilitv ; lie is easily startled, his feet are
cold or burning, and he complains of a
prickly sensation of the skin ; Ins spir
its are low : and although lie is satis
fied that exercise would be beneficial
to him, yet he can scarcely summon
ud fortitude enough to try it. In fact
he distrusts every remedy. Several ol
but cases have occurred where few of
them existed, yet examination of the
body,afterdeath, has shown the liver
to have been extensively derangeu.
AGUE AND FEVER.
Dit. C. Mf Lane's LivEn Pii.ls, in
cases of Ague and Fever, when
taken with Quinine, are productive of
the most haDDV 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 unequaled.
