WISHART ' S PINE TREE
NATURE'S GREAT REMEDY,
TUIIOAT AND LUNGS I
It is gratifying to us to Inform the public
that Dr. L. (). C. Wishart's Pino Treo Tar
Cordial, for Throat and Lung Diseases, has
f rained nn enviable reputation from the At
antio to tho I'acillo coast, and from thence to
some of tlio tlrst families of Europe, not thro'
the press alone, but bv persons throughout tho
Stales actually benefitted and cured at his
office. While ne publishes less, so say our re
porters, ho is unable to supply the demand. It
gains and holds its reputation
First. Not by stopping cough, but by loos
ening and assisting naturo to throw off the
unhealthy matter collected about the throat
and bronchial tubes, which mutts irritation.
Second. It removes tho rauso of irritation
(Milch produces cough) of tho mucous mem
brane and bronchial tubes, assists tho lungs
to act and throw off tho unhealthy secretions,
and purines tho blood.
Third. It is free from squills, lobelia, Ipecac
and opium, of wlHch most throat and lung
remedies aro composed, which allav cough
only, and disorganize tho stomach. 'It lias a
soothing e licet on the stomach, acts on the
liver aud kidneys, and lymphatic and nervous
regions, thus reiicdiiig to every part of the
system, uml in its invigorating and purifying
effects it has gained a reputation which it
must hold above ull others In the ninrkot. -

Couldn't Stand the Flute.
have seen in one of the
papers an article upon "The
Powers of Music, in which the
writer describes how, when he
would play his flute at his parlor
window, a toad would come out
from under the front step and
appear to drink in the delicious
melody with an air of rapturous
exultation. This must be the
man who lived across the. - street
from'usv We have noticed .sev
eral times that a toad came out
and eat on the step when the
man began to play the flute; but
we-?m,jB tiwagbW-ifc -was-for
the purpose of ascertaining what
sort of an idiot it was makii
such a horrible racket in a peace
ful neighborhood. Sure enough,
day before yesterday, when the
playing began, out came the toad,
unable to stand it any longer,
He had another toad with him,
and they went and got the lid
off an old blacking box, and
fixed a string to it, and packed
into it their little store of dead
flies and things, and three or
four small toads, and. all their
domestic comforts, and hitchej
oh that string and began to move,
down the street in search of a
new residence. iYes, animals
have an appreciation of music
and knowing that fact, we have
often wondered how this toad
stood it so close to the man with
Who Pays the Fiddler?
An ambitious youth in Charles
ton, Mass., who has little money
of his own, hut a wealthy father,
recently conceived the brilliant
idea of giving a grand party, at
which all the notables of the
country should be present.. He
accordingly sent notes of invita
tion to distinguished men of all
the States of the Union, includ
ing President Grant, Secretary
Boutwell, Chas. Francis Adams,
and Horace Greeley, also en
closing his own photograph.
His orders for hall decorations
were liberal, amounting to $12,
000, flowers alone to the amount
of $5,000 being included. The
owner of the hall refused to al
low the use of the hall without
receiving $300 in advance ; the
young man's father refused to
furnish the money, and the
magnificent party fell through.
The old gentleman, however, has
to spend a few hundreds in tele
graphing the invited guests not
to come, instead of several thous
ands for dancing.
The epizootio has its hu
mors, as well as its inconveni
ences. In many instances it
was necessary to use men where
horses had been employed before,
and in some localities the former
were hitched to carts and wa
gons, and did their work in the
most creditable manner. In-view
of this arrangement, the follow
ing reaches us from Maine :
"A large and powerful but
skittish young man, attached to
a handcart, ran away on Main
street, Bangor, yesterday fore
noon, to the great terror of a
number of ladies on the side
walk. He was caught, however,
before doing any damage."
The4 majority for Greeley in
Maryland is eleven hundred and
seventy votes, a result entirely
and altogether owing to the re
markable fondness exhibited by
some of our friends to stay at
homo "on election day. We im
agine that it will not take much
argument to prove the fact that
it is impossible for the Democ
racy, no matter what may be
their actual numerical strength,
to succeed at the polls, without
taking . the trouble to go there
and vote a lesson that will no
doubt be seriously studied before
another election comes upon us.

The Origin of Christmas
Christmas jrifts had their
origin in the-Roman -Paganalia,
which was instituted by Servius
Tullius,;B. C. 550: On these fes
tivals, 'celebrated 'at- the begin-
mug oi. uie year, an altar was .
erected: in every village, and to
the dox placed unon it pverv
. i -, j
man, woman and child was ex
pected to contribute a coin. Au
brey' speaks of a pot in which
Roman coins, were found, and
supposed to be one of these Pag
analia vessels.', The Christmas

New-Year's box. There
is an, impressite'j propriety and
tender beauty, however, in thus
commemorating the' event which
gave a Divine Redeemer tp man
kind. ' It is, morever, an equally
appropriate custom which makes
the season one, not only of com
posing and forgetting old' quar
rels, and renewing" and confirm
ing friendships, but for a universal-manifestation
and charity from the .rich to the
poor in omen times this benefi

Economy in Coal.
The most practical susrsestion
yet made' toward economy of
coal seems to be tho use of solid
bottoms in ordinary fire grates.
It is asserted, and indeed. proved,
that in any fire-nlace not exces
sively small, a plate of iron
placed upon the grate will halve
the consurarition of coal, reduce
the smoke, and leave a cheerful,
tree-burning fire. Quite suffi
cient air enters through the bars :
no poking is necessary, and the
lire never goes out till the coals
are consumed. There is no ash
and no dust, every particle beiner
consumed. Any householder can
try this experiment, and reduce
his coal bill, say thirty ner cent.
at a cost Of a shilling.
How to Curl Hair.

thing to hold in the mouth is a
mouthful of cold water, renewed
every few minutes. It will take
away the craving for tobacco
quicker than anything else, and
is wholly unobjectionable. A
pine stick is the best of any
thing to chew, but the objection
to that, and to anything that is
chewed, that it over exercises
and weakens tho salivary glands.
In quitting the use of tobacco,
quit at once and not attempt to
quit oil gradually.

Never give up when you are
right. A frown is only a con-
traction, and can't last long. A
laugh of derision is but the
modified bark of a cur. If you
can be laughed out of good, or
the good out of you, you are
weaker in intellect than the fool
whose argument is a guffaw,
whose logio is a sneer. .
