Do Fishes Think?
A wmteb la. AH The Tear' Round gives
ome interesting facts on this point He

" Birds and beasts think. Why shouldn't
fishes also think? .
When a knowing old pointer is sent
. into the turnip-field with a shocking bad
shot, he soon arrives at his own conclu
sions. Regarding the sportsman with a
look of contempt, he sets him down as a
very poor stick on finding shot fired after
shot without bringing down a bird, and
thinks it is not worth taking the trouble
to point any longer for such a mnff.
When Jenny Wren has half finished

to herself No, this won't do. The twigs
Vt support it properly; it will tumble
On one side. -She begins another, and
when that is half done, she looks at it, and
after reflection says, That won't do eith
er. The foundation is good, but the situa
tion is much exposed. Silly little short
sight d thing that I was, I did not notice
the foot-path close at hand, on which
birds-nesting schoolboys go to and fro.'

with her tiny brood.
" In like manner, when you drag the lake
in your park, or the pond ia your pasture,
for the purpose of tasting a dish of stew
ed carp, you surround your 'finny tribes
with a circle of network, till escape from
it seerss impossible: But look at the fine
fellow with his snout just out of the wa
ter, smelling at the corks that float your
nets. ' He thinks he has me,' says Cypria
nus, to himself, ' and is settling in his mind
with what sauce he will eat me. I wish
ha may get me !' Then, going back to
make a better leap, he makes a rush to the
front, clears the net as cleanly as the win
ning horse at the steeple chase clears the
last hurdle, and imitating human diploma
tists who wish to avoid punting in their
appearance, forthwith takes to his bed
in the mud. The tails of eels
prove that they are acquainted with at
least one of the mechanical powers. M.
Le Paute, the conservator of the Bois de
Vincennes, one day had the fancy to put a
number of tiny eels into an aquarium con
taining a population of very small salmon.
A shcrt time afterwards the eels were all
gone. What had become of them? Had
the salmon eaten them ! It was not un
likely. " To make sure, he put a certain num
ber of each in a bell-glass of water, which
he covered with a plate and then reversed,
so that the glass, of water stood on the
plate. By this arrangement all escape
seemed preventel Not so, however. Afu-r
trying in vain with their heads, the little
eels inserted the tips of their tails into the
narrow chink between the glass and the
plate, and so squeezed themselves out
backwards. They knew the consequences
of forcing in the thin edge of a wedge.
" The roach practises a system of mutual
instruction. On the banks of the Loir
please not to confound le Loir with la
Loire there stands an abbey. Opposite
the abbey, in the midst of the meadows,
some cold springs of purest water break
out, and, uniting, hasten to join the Loir
in a broad, shallow, chilly stream, which
is known in the neighborhood as the Gue
Froid, the Cold Ford, and is the resort of
whole shoals of magnificent roach. Now
fish have their perversities, as well as men ;
and not a single angler, for miles round
about, could ever get a fish to take a hook
in the Gue-Froid. One June morning, M.
De la Blanchere resolved to try, employ
ing a mode of fishing unknown to those
parts, and consequently unknown to the
fish of the place.
"Every kind of fishing was practised
there except fly-fishing, which determined
him to mike the experiment, with a fine
kitchen blue-bottle stuck on the barb of
his hook. Scarcely had it touched the
water before one, two, three, ten, twenty,
fifty roach passed, one after the other, into
his basket, until it made his shoulders
ache. He returned as proud well, as
Lucifer. But nobody would believe he
had can eh t that in the Gue-Froid.
" The only way to convince the incred
ulous was to take them with him, one by
one, and by revealing the secret, enable
them to have the same success, which he
-did.
"The first time, he and his friend had a
less abundant catch, than when ne tried
the trick alone. Nevertheless, the sport
was not bad. They each of them took
some thirty roach. Everybody was now
convinced, as well they might oe. -
" Next day he returned to the Gue-Froid
with fourteen companions. He got six
roach ; nobody else got anything.
" The day after, twenty anglers went to
work. Everybody's 6hare was exactly
nothing- at alL The roach had completed
their education. . . - , .
"All fish, therefore, are -not absolute
fools. But we should know much more
about fish than we do if every ' angler was
a savant, which would become oppressive
to the reading public, or if every 6avant
were an angler, which might be harder
lines on fishes than they really deserve."
Damp Dwellings.
As a general rule, it may be laid down
that there is no auxiliary so powerful in
diminishing the amount of such moisture
as cannot be actually shut out from -any
part of a building, as a free circulation of
air. It is to be remembered that the at
mosphere is almost always in such a state
that when it comes into contact with free
moisture it will absorb some of it Let,
then-fore, openings communicating with
the cavities and vacant spaces of a house
be freely provided. The hollow space in a
roof, the space between floor and ceiling,
and the hollow under a. floor, should all
enjoy a free circulation of air. It is even
desirable, in building hollow walls, to at
tempt to promote a circulation of air in
the cavity, and in all these cases it should
oe remembered that two openings are re
quisite to each hollow in order to give
much hope of a current or change of air.
Where there is no ventilation under the
lowest floor of a house, the joists and
timbers will soon begin to decay. This
may be accelerated by covering the floor
with, oil cloth or kamptulicon or similar
non-porous coverings. Ivy or creepers
against external wails, and even trees
growing close to them, tend to promote
moisture by cutting off circulation of air.
The failure of any portion of the ar
rangements for water-supply or drainage
will be pretty sure to lead to damp. - As
general rules, no drain should ever be
permitted to pass under any part of a
dwelling-house ; and when this cannot be
prevented, the drain should - be so laid
without being covered up with earth, that
every part of it which is under the floor of
the house can be reached at once. The
water pipes, on the other hand, should be
kept well within the house for. warmth's
sake, and, where they leave it should be
at a level of not less than three feet at the
least below the surface, for protection
against frost Whenever practicable,
water pipes should be left where they can
be seen and got at Iron is preferable to
lead for their material, and the arrange
ments should always include the means of
shutting oil water supplies in very irosty
weather.
It only remains to suggest to those per
sons who unfortunately find themselves in
a damp house which, they cannot leave.
that they ought to use as many remedies as
they can, rather than only one at a lame;
that as far as possible, what is done should
be done in dry weather; and that the re
pairs or remedies attempted should be car
ried out with good materials and labor,
in the most thorough way possible, and
under viguani supervision. Damp is
most insidious, finds its way in at very
small and very out-of-the-way islets, and
when once established seems very loth to
be disturbed. Those who build for them
selves wild, we hope, not overlook the
very just importance of the simple precau
tions neeessary to keep their houses dry :
but we should be especially gratified if
these observations induce some of our
readers who rent houses to bestow some
little nains in ascertaining before they
take a house, if these precautions have
been attended to or not. It is wise to try
to select a wet day for looking over a
house, for if the day De line, anu me
weather dry, damp spots as well as many
other defects may be easily overlooked.
Let tLe intending tenant look for the ex
isting of damp courses, dry areas, and ven
tilation under floors; let him avoid a
ground floor that is not a little raised
above the earth outside, unless he ia sure
there is a good cavity under it well venti
lated. Bricks that are manifestly porous,
or which change color very much when
rain falls, parapets with no copings, walls
where the pointing is not thoroughly
sound, eaves without gutters, and the like,
are to be looked upon with great distrust ;
and an unsound roof or ill-arranged gut
ttrs (of which, by-the-bye, few non-professional
persons can form a good opinion)
ought to be looked upon with as much
dUfavoras a dining-room of the wrong
shape, or a drawing-room that looks
gloomy. In one word, in choosing a house
in which a man intends himself and his
family to live, he should look out for the
indications of damp as pointing out the
presence of one of the most serious ene
mies to his comfort, if not to the continu
ance of their life, which he can have to
encounter. London Tool Journal.

THE LATE MR. HIGGINS.
Arthour Twain was a man of considera

English places of resort called Newgate,
to see about something, and never returned

A SOLICITOR ON THE HIGHWAY IN WM.
RUFUS' TIME.
Augustus Twain seems to have made
something of a stir about the year 1160.
He was as full of fun as he could be, and
used to take his old saber and sharpen it
up, and get in a convenient place on a dark
night, and stick it through people as they
went by, to see them jump. He was a
born humorist. But he got to going too
far with it; and the first time he was
found strippine ona of these parties, the
authorities removed one end of him, and
put it up on a nice high place on Temple
Bar, where it could contemplate the peo
ple and have a good time. He never liked
any situation so much or stuck to it so
long.

A Strange Presentiment.
Tjih Rcranton f Pa. i Eevublican tells the
following sad story of one of the victims of
the late Pittstou disaster:
" William James expired about 3 o'clock
on the afternoon of the Tuesday following
the catastrophe, and was the last added to
the list of those upon whom the death
angel laid his hand in that awful havoc.
He was a Welchman, and had been in
this country about seven months. On the

upon her for a moment with a look full of
tenderness and significance, said to her, ' if
I should not cod.o back alive would you
be in such a hurry getting me out?' The
wife answerd ' No,' but remarked that ' if
he was going at all, it was time he was
gone.' He lifted his pail without saying a
word, and after kissing his wife, kissed his
four little children, who were sitting play
ing on the door-step. When he had got
about fifty yards from his home, he return
ed again, and kissed his wife and children
once more with great fervency. His wife
noticed that he was the victim of gloomy
forebodings, and as he turned away she
was about to entreat him not to go to work
if he apprehended any danger. But hope
and courage and the necessities of their
family overcame her intention, and she let
him go. She stood in the door and watch

at a point where he turned out of her
sight he paused and cast a wistful look to
ward his home and little ones, and, seeing
his wife, waved with his hand a last adieu.
lie parted with his loved ones torever.
Fecundity of Weed Plants.
Few persons are aware of the astonish'
ing fecundity of most of the pernicious
weeds which infest our farms.
In some countries, where large landed
estates are held by single individuals, and
whose incomes are very large, the most
pains-taking investigations have been
made in order to learn what a single weed
plant is capable of doing in the way of
propagating ltseu. we nave Deiore us
some of the results of these careful investi
gations, and from which we learn that
single coltsfoot produces from 4.000 to 22,
500 seeds ! The wild mustard, 8,000 seeds
from a single plant ! The chamomile, 40,
000: the Mayweed, 45,000; the burdock,
24,000; the red poppy, 50,000; the wild
parsley, 6,000.
All farmers have noticed the fine gossa
mer which surrounds the thistle seed
which is borne np by the wind and carried
aloof like a tiny car. In this way, from
single plant 10,000 seeds have floated away
on downy wings. Then there are weeds
whose seed pods burst open with a vio;
lence, like the common garden balsam, so
as to scatter the seeds to a distance, where
they will propagate new plantations of
their kind. On the other hand, some
plants have seeds supplied with delicate
hooks to fasten in the soil ; others, again,
propagate slyly under the earth, as the
crow garlic, which produces 700 offshoots
a year
The Irish Gazette states that the nod
ding poppy or cockle plant has lessened
the wheat crop in that country by at least
a tenth part or its value, and that " the
weeds of Ireland cost nearly six millions &
year!"
In England experiments have been re
cently made to ascertain the influence
which weeds have upon the growing crop.
In one instance several acres were sowed
one acre was measured and not a weed dis
turbed in it the other six were carefully
weeded ; the un weeded acre produced eight
teen bushels and the weeded acres averag
ed twenty-two and a half bushels per acre.
In another instance the unweeded acre
produced thirteen bushels of barley, and
the weeded twenty-eight bushels. A third,
with oats, produced seventeen bushels,
and the weeded acre thirty seven bushels.
Any reform in this matter, to be worthy
of the name, will be futile until we can
purchase pure seeds with which to sow
our fields. The fault in this particular is
sometimes with the farmer himself. He
foolishly desires to purchase cheap seeds
and finds some seedsmen willing to oblige
him. Seeds are thus mixed often for pur
poses of fraud.
In an examination made and reported to
the Croydon Farmer Club, England, it was
found that as many as 1,920,000 plantain
seeds were contained in a single bushel of
red clover.
In other experiments, in a bushel of rye
grass there were detected no less than
204, 800 weed seeds. In a bushel of clover
seed, 312,000; of Unseed, 304,600; and all
this was irrespective of dirt and particles
of stone, which make cheap seed by far
the dearest
Let us urge, then, again and again, upon
farmers, the importance of extirpating the
weeds upon their own lands. It is useless
for one to keep his fields clean while his
neighbor's fields are foul and constantly
resowing all the land within half a mile of
him. 2? E. Farmer.
A Word of Entreaty.
The incarnation of self sacrifice finds its
embodiment in the souls and bodies of
farmers' wives, and especially such as are
mothers. We refer no w to the almost uni
versal disposition among them to convert
themselves into absolute drudges, simply
for the sake of saving a few dollars, which
they believe will advance the happiness
and welfare of those they love. Thousands
of women go down te early graves every
year, victims to this deplorable misappre
hension of results, of how they may best
serve those they wish to serve.
At this season of the year, when the
hard and earnest work of farm-life opens
and asserts its demands, and country wo
men are deciding for themselves the ques
tion, we beg leave to put in an earnest
entreaty in behalf of the children. For
their Bakes, consider that your life and
health are more to them to the very last
moment of your life, than any amount of
money you may be able to lay up for their
use. We write from a sad and profound
experience. Our own mother, a proud,
ambitious woman, with a delicacy of con
stitution too often characterizing cur coun
try women, full of nerve and with a great
force of character, found herself at the
early age of thirty-eight "just ready to
begin to enjoy life," as she sadly expressed
it obliged to relinquish it to leave the
comfortable home she had toiled so hard
to win and adorn, and to know' that her
children were soon to be motherless. Al
though a very little girl then, it made an
impression that subsequent years have
only confirmed. Over work, the impulse
of which was love and ambition for her
children, killed her. How gladly would
each and all of us, part with every dollar
that has come to us, from the basis of her
toils, if by so doing we could have our
mother ! The mistake she made, although
so palpable to us now, she saw only when
too late.
We well remember one day, during the
time when she was rapidly nearing the
limit of her life here, of a conversation
she had with a friend, in which she de
plored her mistaken love, and hoped her
own daughters would never do as she
had done. It was only the old story of
half the mothers who go to heaven a great
many years before they ought working,
consciously beyond her strength, for "only
thi once," but doing it not ouly once, but
again and again, until the last possibility
was exhausted.
Oh, wives and mothers, be wise before
it is too late t Live so as to enjoy ecerg
day of your life. Ten years hence, or
even to-morrow, you may die. Live so
that your presence will gladden the lives
of your dear ones, more than anything
your hands can win for them. Don't
tnuiK you serve mem wisely or lovingly
by sacrificing your health with a view to
"economy, ''which is never economy, but
the rankest extravagance. ' What if the
farm be not paid lor this year, or next or
even next ? There is not much to fear so
long as you retain your health ; but ivery
thing to fear if you lose it
So, if your best judgment tells you that
you shall need help this coming summer,
lonow your judgment in me matter. Aside
from the children, and what you owe to
them in caring for your health, you owe
equally as much t yourself. You have a
right to lile andchappiness, it you are a
woman. So many women act as if tbey
were oi secondary importance, simply be
cause of their being women, and married
ones, that their action provokes coin
ment, if nothing more.
On the subject of " Help" we have hitb
erto had somewhat to say, so that we have
now only to suggest male domestics where
females cannot be procured. An active
boy from ten to fifteen years of age will
lighten the'labors of a house almost, if not
quite, as much as a lull grown domestic.
bucu can always be had, if not in the
country the city swarms with them, and
benevolent societies are always ready to
supply the demand.
It is customary with many women to
leave the decision of such matters with
their husbands, or the "men folks." It
would be safe and pleasant to do so if the
" men folks" were only what they should
be, instead of being, oftentimes, thought
less, careless, and selfish. We have known
men to be " Dright and shining lights in
the church," carry a pious face from Sun
day morning until Sunday night and as
sume all the phases of convent ioD&l piety.
while, at the same time, their wives or
daughters, or both, were actually working
inemttirct to aeain under the approving
smile of their master 1 The physical health
of horses and cattle were intelligently re
garded, but, then, the loss of a wife is a
"dispensation of Providence," and the
consolation that comes in the shape of
anoiuer is cueenuily accepted of at the

ho, as long as such men exist it is
neither safe nor advisable to always abide
by the decision of the " head of the house,".

Increasing the Height of Rooms.
a
a
;
It is frequently desirable to raise the
roof of a dwelling house a few feet higher
than it was originally built, for the pur
pose of making sleeping rooms in the at
tic story, or to render the rooms that arc
quite too low, more pleasant and airy. But
many builders dare not attempt such
job, unless they take the roof entirely
down, for fear that they may get a dead
fall trap on stilts, when they have lifted
the roof from its original foundation. It
will be found a comparatively easy job to
raise the roof of au ordinary building one
foot or six feet with perfect safety, pro
vided a workman will operate understand
ingly. Let us assume, for example,
that it is desired to raise the roof of a
dwelling house, or the roof of one wing.
which is thirty feet long and twenty feet
wide. If the lower ends of the rafters
rest on plates six inches square, or larger.
it will be better to elevate the plates with
the roof, by cutting openings through the
side walls about six feet from each end, to
receive sticks of timber extending across
the building beneath the plates. If the
building has been erected with a balloon
frame, there should be three sticks of
square timber, one near each end, and one
near the middle. Let these timbers be
blocked up close to the urwler
side of the plates. The ends of
these sticks need not extend beyond
the outside ot the plates, so as to inter
iere wiin tne cornice, ic there are no
collar leaves secured to the rafters, the
plates must be fastened, temporarily, to
the timbers, to prevent their spreading as
soon as the roof is lifted. The next step
will be to set a screw near the end of each
stick of timber, on a foundation that will
not topple or sway as soon ai.it receives
the superincumbent pressure of the roof
If strong iron jack screws cannot be ob
tained conveniently, three two-inch wooden
bench screws will elevate one side of a
large or small rO'f with perfect safety.
The writer has frequently lifted the comer
of a thirty byforty foot barn with a pair
of two and one-eighth inch wooden screws.
As soon as the timbers are secured in their
proper places, and the screws are set to
lift one side, remove a board just below
the cornice, and saw off all the studs on
both sides of the building. Let all the
studs at the gable end be sawed in two at
a point nearly in a horizontal line with
the plates, and let the gable end walls and
windows rise bodily with the roof. Now,
let the screws be all worked together,
blocking up every inch as fast as the roof
rises. After one side has been elevated six
inches, remove the screws to the opposite
side, and elevate it about one foot keeping
the timbers beneath the plates and well
blocked as fast as the roof rises.
In case there should be a chimney rest
ing on a closet or on the collar beams sup
ported by . a partition, procure another
wooden screw, and set it beneath the chim
ney. Four wooden screws will usually
cost no more than the proprietors of jack
screws are accustomed to charge for the
use of a set of screws while performing
such a job. If the screws are placed on
the foundation so as to elevate the roof
perpendicularly, -by raising one side six
inches, then the opposite side one foot
and, after this, lifting each side alternately
one foot there will be no difficulty in car
rying up the roof in a perpendicular di
rection, to any desired height provided
the screws and the blocking are supported
by a broad foundation of blocks that-will
not rock. Before removing the screws,
see that the blocking is so secure that the
roof cannot slip, in case the screws are
not set perpendicularly on the opposite
side. As the roof is lilted, let a plumb
line be frequently employed to determine
whether it is not being carried in any di
rection away from a perpendicular line.
In case the entire roof is one inch or more
too far to the north, let the north side be
lifted one foot higher than the opposite
side, and be blocked up; then set the
crews under the opposite side inclining
about one inch per foot in height By this
means, the roof can be carried in any de
sired direction, the distance of half
an inch or two inches. If the screws
are always set perpendicularly,
the roof will rise in the right direction.
If, for example, the plates beneath the
roof to be raised were four feet from the
chamber floor, in lieu of square blocks,
make a strong platform for each screw to
rest on, by placing four pieces of scantling,
two feet long, on the ends, for corner posts,
and nailing stays from the top of one to
the lower end of the another. Then, let
the scantling stand on strong planks rest
ing on the floor. A crib can then be car
ried up, on the tops of the corner posts,
with pieces of plank, or studs or boards,
and the foundation will not topple. As
soon as the roof has been elevated to the
desired hight on one side, let the space in
the side wall be filled by nailing pieces of
studs to the sides of the pieces attached to
the plates, and the sides of the studs be
neath. Then lift the opposite side of the
roof, and secure pieces of studs to the sides
of any timbers that have been sawed in two.
If studs, when lapped together, be nailed
firmly, the side wall will be about as strong
as if the studs were of one entire piece of
timber. Should there be partitions ex
tending from the floor to the roof; tear
away the base boards and saw off the studs
near the floor ; and let another screw be
employed to carry up such portions of the
structure, or let a self-acting lever, with a
weight at the farther end, hold the parti
tion wall up to the desired position as the
roof is rising. Technologist.

to be a death dose to cutworms. Sprinkle
around the plant a little of the wash every
evening, until the plants are strong and

Dr. Halford, Professor of Anatomy

has lound an antidote to the bites ot poi
sonous reptiles in injecting ammonia into
the blood of animals bitten. His experi

have proved eminently successful.
Intemperance. Strong drink has a
tendency to banish reason, destroy health
and blight the prospects of men. Ib will
give an unsteady gait a trembling hand, a
red nose, and a bloated face. The wine
bibber has his eyes full of rheum, and his
head full of confusion, his strength im
paired, and his thirst perpetual. London

A Simple Ccrr for Bore Throat.
A well informed friend sends us the fol
lowing : Take the whites of two eggs and
beat them in with two spoonfuls of white
sugar; grate in a little nutmeg, and then
add a pint of lukewarm water. Stir well
and drink often. Repeat the prescription
if necessary. Our friend thinks it will
cure the most obstinate case of hoarseness
in a short time. Exchmge.
To Renovate Feather Beds. If there
is no steam renovator at hand, put the
beds out in the hrst heavy, drenching ram
that falls. Let them become thoroughly
wet and turn them several times. Then
dry them in the sun, and when one side
is perfectly dry, beat it with sucks to
lighten up the feathers, and turn up the
other side to dry, either placing boards
under it or placing the beds on the piazza
root it one is at hand.
Milking should be performed at regu
lar hours, not varying fifteen minutes one
day from the other. No talking or laugh
.Dg should be permitted at the time, and it
should be done as speedily as possible.
See that those who milk the cows can con
trol themselves, govern their passions,
speak low and kindly almost under any
provocation, and soon the cows will learn
that they are not going to be abused and
win submit to the operation.
The unpleasant odor produced by per
spiration is frequently the source of vex
ation to persons who are subject to it
Nothing is simpler than to remove this
odor more effectually than by the appli
cation of such costly perfumes and ungents
as are in use. It is only necessary to pro
cure some of the compound spirits of am
monia, and place about two tablespoosful
in a basin of water. Washing the face,
hands and arms, with this, leaves the skin
as sweet and - clean as one could wish.
The wash is perfectly harmless, and very
cheap. It is recommended on the au
thority of an experienced physician.
Machange.
Accordixo to various statements col
lected by the Scientific American, the mod
ern habit of much traveling does not tend
to diminish longevity or induce any par
ticular diseases. Statistics have been
gathered in France and England which
6eem to prove this conclusively, and it is
not supposed tnat tne result is very uiner
cnt in this country, though information
is still wanting. Railway accidents are
more common with us, and yet the loss of
lite by railroads is less in proportion than
by any other means of conveyance. As
for an Englishman, according to one of
their authorities, his rlsK ot death by cang
ing is lo0 times greater than that of per
lining on a railway.
Parents and teachers may learn a valu
able lesson from a remark once made by
the Duke of Gloucester, the third son of
the Prince of Wales, father of George III.
He was a dull child, and his mother used
to cause him great distress at times by
jeering him on account ot n:s dullness, in
the presence of his brothers and sisters.
On one particular occasion she told them
to laugh at the ooh The sensitive child
held down its head and said nothing, upon
which the .Princess changed her tone, and
accused him of sulkiness. " No," he stid,
"I was not sulky : I was ony thinking.
" And pray what were you thinking of?'
inquired the Princess, with increasing
scorn in her manner. " I was thinking,'
said the poor child, "how I should feel if
1 bad a son as unhappy as you mase me.
Flowers and Children.
1st an article in the May number of -4rf
on the influence of toys in educating and
forming the tastes of children, Blanchard
Jerrold writes charmingly on the subject
of flowers. He says :
" I would have flowers crowded in tie
school room windows of the very voung.
I would build broad open balconies for
the baby scholars ; where, during every
daylight moment of fair weather, they
might have fresh air, and bits of beauty
flowering nnder their inquiring eyea
would have the Pouponniere of Brussels
copied, making elementary education De
gin; not when a child has been already
erected into a little monster Ijy bad parents
and evil surroundings; but in its protract
ed cradle, in the first shaking of its rattle,
and the first pointing of its fingers to pic
tures and plants. We should or our chil
dren would see the good results of such
cradle teaching; of aalhetics thrown into
the alphabet, into the toy-shop, the play
ground, and the adornments of the school
room. For the child that is alive to the
simplest lessons and beauties of the field,
that can delight in striving to imitate-if
only with straw or paper a beautiful
form placed before it, is far on the way to
a higher education, even should subsequent
events prove untoward in its path, than
the creature of dull, uniformed sight in
fancy, who may lw kept well at school
under good masters. A feeling for the
beautif ul, a delight in it, which is at pres
ent almost unknown in England, is that
which we shall strive after, not in art
academies but in infant schools and nurse
ries. The roughest Dutch doll is the
Venus di Medici to the child that nurses
it. We give the ugly thing to the child,
and so make for ourselves the after diffi
culty of proving that dolly is ng!y. The
remark applies to nearly all toys ; certain
ly to all that are English.
Paussiso's White Wine Vinegar is a most
superb article for table use. Warranted pure.
SYMPTOMS OF CATARRH.
Indisposition to exercise, difficulty of thlak
ing or reasoning or concentrating the nund
upon any subject, lassitude, lack of ambition
or energy, discharge falling into throat, some,
times profuse, watery, acrid, thick and tena
cious, mucous, pu-ulent, offensive, etc. In
others a dryness, dry, watery, weak or In
flamed eyes, ringing in ears, deafness, hawk
ing and coughing to clear throat, ulcerations,
death and decay of bones, scabs from ulcers,
constant desire to clear nose and throat,
voice altered, nasal twang, offensive breath,
impaired or total deprivation of sense of smell
and taste, dizziness, mental depression, loss
of appetite, indigestion, dyspepsia, enUrgcd
tonsils, tickling cough, difficulty in speaking
plainly, general debility, idiocy and insanity.
All the above symptoms are common to the
disease in some of its stages or complications,
yet thousands of cases annually terminate in
consumption or Insanity and end In the grave
without ever having manifested one-third of
the symptoms above enumerated.
No disease is more common or less under
stood by physicians. The proprietor of Dr.
Sage's Catarrh Remedy will pay $500 reward
for a case of catarrh which he cannot cure.

Valuable Hints.
A regular habit of body is absolutely essential
to physical health and clearness of intellect. Nor
Is this all. Beauty of person cannot co-exist with
an nnnatnral condition of the bowels. A frea
passage oi me retuse matter of the system throu;
these natural waste pipes, is as necessary to the
parity of the bod; as the free passage of the oual
of a city through its sewers is necessary to the
health of Its inhabitants.
Indigestion is the primary cause of most of tbe
diseases of the discharging organs, and one of its
mot common resalts is constipation. This com
plaint, be ides beinz daneerons in itelf. has manv
disagreeable concomitants snch as an unpleasant
orcHiu, a sauow sain, contaminating Dlood and
bile, hemorrhoids, headache, loss of memory and
general debility.
Hosteller Stomach Bitters remove all these evils
by removing their immediate cause In the digestive
or'ans. and reenlating the action of the intestines.
The combination of properties in this celebrated
preparation is one of its chief merits. It is not
merely a stimulant or a tonic, or an antibilious
a'ciu, or a nervine, or a Dlood depurent, or a ca
thartic, but all these curative elements judiciously
uicuucu in wue powerini restorative, it lends ac
tivity and vitri r to the inert and enervated mom
ach, relieves the alimentary canal of its obetrac
tions, and gives tone to the membrane which lines
it, gently stimulates the liverr braces the nerves,
and cheers the animal spirits. No other remedy
possesses such a variety of hyeienic virtues. It is
to tneee characteristics that it owes its prestiire as
a household medicine. Experience has proved
that it is as harmless as it is efficacious, and hence
it is as popular with the weaker sex as with the
stronger.
Hosteller's Stomach Bitters are sold in bottles
only, and the trade-mark, blown in the glass and
engraved on the label, is the test of genuineness.
