The Medicines of the Millions!
For thirty -five years lloofland's

mind which nothing can shake or
impair. It is expressly adaptod to
tho constitutions and systems of in

stimulant while for those who do,
lloofland's German Tonic, of which
pure Santa Crua Rum forms the

Imperialism alias Flunkeyism.
A Washington correspon
dent writes I "We are getting
to be just the least hit Imperi
al in onr ways here. For the
first time in the history of the
Executive Mansion, the ser
vants appear in liveryk His
Excellency is surrounded by
the military. There is a con
tinual jingling of spurs and
clank of sabres, and the Illus
trious 'tanner, how grown so
great, can only be reached
through a battallion of flunk
ies, and Brigadier Generals
(by brevet) are ns thick as
blackberries. Mrs. Grant.
when she receives, is surround
ed by her ladies of honor, and
the handsome, lolly General
Michler acts as master of cere
monies, and presents the vul
gar crowd to their exclusive
Excellencies.
The old adage "put a beggar
on horseback and he will ride
to the devil" is verified by
the Grant administration.
Under former administrations
one or two plain servants in
citizens' dress performed the
duties which now require the
service ot a score of flunkeys
dressed in the United States
army uniform. To such base
uses have the regulation button
and strap of the service been
brought, that on meeting a
man on the streets of Wash
ington wearing them, it is im
possible to tell whether he is a
Presidential flunkey or a Major
General of the U. S. Army.
Another calamity to the
French, in the shape of the
cattle plague, has broken out
among the immense droves of
cattle gathered at Brest for the
relief of the half-starving pop
ulation of Paris, and is doing
such havoc among those herds
that it is impossible to bury
them as rapidly as circumstan
ces require. A cordon has
been drawn around the cattle
affected with the disease, and
as they die off they are carted
to the water side and tumbled
into condemned war ships,
which hvhen filled, are towed
out to sea and sunk. It is to
be feared, however, that when
these carcasses, in the process
of decomposition, rise to the
surface, they will be washed
ashore and create another pes
tilence. Trnly, the cup of
misery to poor France has
been filled to the brim and she
is drinking to the dregs; but
from the very extremity of her
sufferings there is at least this
hope that she will give up
up the tight, and that her victo
noua enemy will not be with
out generosity in his exactions.
The question of forcing ne
gro children into the i white
schools of New Orleans is still
agitating the people, and the
limes oi mat city cnaracier
lzes the interference as an act
of audacious agitation for po
litical purposes, to create party
capital ana, perhaps, provoke
violonco, and says : "This peo

in the laws which give equal
political aud civil lights to col

they will never consent to the

Measuring Corn in Bulk.
A correspondent requests us
to publish a rale for measuring
corn in me duik, or in wagon.
Wo find the following rule giv
en in several books but cannot
vouch for the accuracy: "Mul

height together, in feet and

this product by four; strike off

result will be shelled bushek"

Clean Your Teeth.
Few people are aware why
a il 1 .... mi . . t T
teetn aecay. xne rotting is
caused by innumerable worms
that collect oh the enamel and
buiTow into it. It is the masses
of these filthy things that
chiefly make up the tartar,
that is so foul and so disfigur
ing to the appearance of the
teeth. They number millions
in a nasty mouth, and so mi
nute that they cannot be seen
by the naked eye, requiring a
good microscope to be seen in
all their hideousness. They
are white and transparent,
with nearly the same conforma
tion at both ends. They seem
to have a joint in the middle
and are in perpetual motion.
They discbarge an acid of some
sort, which combines with the
lime of the enamel, and if they
are not cleaned away regular
ly, they thus penetrate through
this very hard coating and get
into the body of the teeth: tne
acids of the food then find
entrance into the substance of
which the teeth are composed,
and the sure consequence is
the misery of the toothache
and the visit of the dentist,
there to be subjected to the in
ternal process of filing plug
ging and extracting all of
wmcn mignc nave oeen saved
by a little attention to clean
liness. We wish our young friends
could view under a microscope
a drop of saliva from a tooth
brush they would see with
amazement that it contains sev
eral thousand of these wrig
gling little mouth-worms. "We
are sure that they would need
no stronger argument to make
them use the brush thoroughly
and keep the teeth clear of the
most disgusting animalculae
that can be imagined to exist
anywhere much less in the
mouth of a decent person.

Salt Your Chimney.
In building your chimney
put a quantity of salt into the
mortar with which theinter-
cources of brick are to be laidi
The effect will be that there
will never bo any accumulation
of soot in that chimney. The
philosophy is thus stated : the
salt in the portion of mortar
wmcn is exposea aosorDs mois
ture from the atmosphere every
damp day. The soot thus be
coming damp, falls down in the
fireplace. This is an English
discovery. It is used with
success in Canada.
The Cure of Catarrh.
Take one part finely pulver
ized saltpetre, and mix; with
two parts white sugar reduced
to flour. This is an effectual
remedy in all the stoppages of
the head, catarrh, etc. It must
be snuffed up the nose a dozen
times or more a day, according
to the severity of the affection.
Persons frequently die from
catarrh in the head, the disease
becoming so bad that the mu
cus, instead of discharging
through the nose, as it rhoula
do, falls down Fthe throat and
lodges on the lungs, producing
many a sore throat, the cause
of which is not suspected; and
terminating fatally, in many
instances, in that most dreaded
of all diseases, consumption.
