The Popular Tonic of the Age.
The day bas gone by when a medicire without merit
could command and retain the confidence of the world.
Advertising indue -s the public to try many things, but
in this shrewd and thoughtful age, words will not suffice
wrhout proofs, and it is by the exercise of their privaie
judgment, men determine the relative value of the
various articles recommended to their notice through
the business columns of newspapers. Ho-tetters
Stomach Bitters bas now been subjected to this search
ing ordeal for more than eighteen years, snd tie result
is that it stands at the head of the class of remedies to
which it belongs. It has distanced and uved down
innumerable competitors, and is to-day the Stindard
Vegetable Tonic of th Western world. The happy
effects which have fol'owed its use id cases of dyspepsia.
biliousness, nervous affections, intermittent fevers and
gener.il debility, and as a constitutional jnvigorant.
have entitled it to universal conlidecae. Nothing can
ever shake its rt potation, for it is based on the indi
vidual experiences of tens of thousands of witnesses,
embracing prominent an-J we 1-known citizens of every
proiession, occupation and class. There is not a city,
town or settlement in the I'nited States where it is not
a medicinal staple. No druggist or general deiler
would consider bis stock complete without it, and the
returns of the intTnal revenue department show that
its sales exceed those of any other proprietary restora
tive manufactured on this side of the Atlantic. The
beneficial results derived dnring a long series of years
from the use of Hostetter's Bitters, have convinced the
whole community that the only true way to restore
to health a broken down or debilitated s stem.or to put
the bnman bodj on its defence when exposed to un
wholesome influences, is to invimaie, r.gulate and
purtfy it at one and the same time.
The Popular Tonic of the Age. Pneumatic Tube 400 Miles Long.
From the Boston Transcript.
The following extract describes the oper
ation cf ft pneumatic tube between Glasgow
and London. Probably few of our readers
are aware cf the existence of the process by
which messages and packages are almost in
stantaneously transmitted between these
I had occasion to send a telegram to Lon
don the other day. and in a tew minutes re
ceived a reply wiiich led me to suppose that
a serious error had been committed by my
agents, involving many thousand pounds.
I immediately went to the telegraph
office and asked to see my message.
The clerk said, "TVe can't show it to yon,
as we have sent it to London. "But," I
replied, "von must hive my original paper
here; I wish to see that" He again said,
"No, we have not got it; it is in the post
office at London." "What do yon mean ?"
I asked. "Pray let me see the paper I left
here an honr ago." "Well," said he. "if
yon mnst se3 it, we will get it back in a few
minutes, but it is now in London." He
rang a bell, and. in five minutes or so, pro
duced my megsage rolled up in pasteboard.
It sterns that for some months there has
existed a pnenmatic telegraph between
Glasgow and London and between London
and the other principa ) cities of the king
dom, which consists of an iron tube into
which the messages are thrown and sent to
their destination. I inquired if I might see
a mrssnge sent "Oh, yes, come round
here." He slipped a nnmber of messages
into the pasteboard scroll, dropped it into
tbe tnbe and made a signal. I put my ear
to the tnlie and heard a slight rumbling
noise for seventeen seconds, when a bell
ring beside me, indicating that the scroll
bad arrived at the general postoffice, four
hundred miles off. It almost took my
breath away to think of it
If I could only go to Boston with the same
relative speed, you might count on my
iHS-ii)g an evening every week at No. 124
Beacon street, and returning home to 6leep.
Who knows but we may be conveyed in this
marvellous manner before many years ?
Pet haps you are aware that there has
been a large tube placed in the general
post-office in London, and the stations in
Enston square, in operation for a number
of years. The mail bags for the north are
all sent by this conveyance, bo that the
post-office receives letters np to a few mo
ments before the train leaves, three miles
off. The transit takes less than two sec
onds ! Surely this is an age of wonders."
The Mistakes of a Night—Amusing Anecdote
From Irving's Life of Goldsmith.
An amusing incident is related as occur
ring in Goldsmith's last journey homeward
from Edgeworthstown. His father's house
was about twenty miles distant; the road
lay through a rough country, impassable
for carriages. Goldsmith procured a horse
for the journey, and a friend furnished him
with a gninea for traveling expenses. He
was bnt a stripling of 16, and being thus
suddenly mounted on horseback, with
money in his pocket, it is no wonder that
his head was turned. He determined
to play the man and spend his money
in independent traveling style. Ac
cordingly, instead t pushing directly
for home, he halted for the night at the
little town of Ard gh, and accosting the
first person he met, inquired, with some
what of a consequential air, for the best
house in the place, Unlnctily, tne person
he had accosted was one Kelly, a notorious
wag, who was quartered in the family of
one ilr. i eatherstone, a gentleman ot lor-
tune. Amused with the self-consequence ot
the Btripling, and willing to play a practical
joke at his expense, he directed him to
what was literally "the best house in the
place" namely, the family mansion of
Mr. Featherstone. Goldsmith according
ly rode up to what he supposed to be
an inn, ordered his horrvj to be tafcen to
the stable, walked into the parlor, seated
himself by the fire, and demanded what he
could have lor supper. On ordinary oc
casions he was different and even awaken
ed in his manner; but here he was "at ease
in his inn," and felt called upon to show
his manhood and enact the experienced
traveler. His person was by no means
calculated to play on his pretentions, for
he was short and thick, with a pock-marked
f.ice and an air and carriage of by no means
distinguished cast The owner of the
house, however, ? oon discovered his whim-
iscal mistake, and being a man of humor,
determined to indulge it, especially as he
accidentlly learned that his intrading
guest was the son of an old acquaintance.
Accordingly Goldsmith was "fooled to the
top of his bent," and permitted to have full
sway throughout the evening. Never was
school-boy more elated. When supper was
served, he most condescendingly insisted
that the landlord, hu wife and daughter,
should partake, and ordered a bottle of
wine to crown the repast and benefit the
house. His last flourish was on going to
bed, when he cave especial orders to have
a hot cake at breakfast. His confusion and
dismay on discovering the next morning
that he had been swaggering in his free-
and-easy way in the house ot a private gen
tit-man may be readily conceived. True to
his habit of turning the events of life to lit
erary account, we find this chapter of ludi-
crons blunders and cross -purposes dramat
ized many years afterward in his admira
ble comedy of bhe htoops to Conquer, or
the ilihtakes of a Aigbt.
A Tempebakce Hatch. The 6tory of
Jim bmiley s trog illustrates a mama lor
betting in' California that makes the most
trilling incidents occasions for displaying
itself. On the Gth instant there was an ice
match at llarysville, to test the relative
virtues of two specimens of ice, one irom
Little Grass Valley, the other from the
Summit. Both blocks, weighing each 131
pounds, were placed in the sun, with even
chances, the 'uercury marking 90 degrees
iu the shade. "The Summit chnnk," says
the report, "was broad and rather flat,
while the Grass Valley specimen was long
er, and sat on one end." Toward noon, as
the match became hot, and streams of wa
ter trickled down the faces of the antago
nists, "there was great excitement among
the friends of the respective chunks," and
bets ranged from 2 50 to $100. The Sum
mit cbunk began to have the best of it;
Grass Vallev showed deep furrows, and
'came np groggy," while Summit took the
matter coolly, and seemed confident of
victory. About the middle of the after
niton the Iriends of Grass Valley threw np
the sponge, and went to betting on how
long Suu.mit would last. It grew dark be

insects that can withstand an application
of caustic lime, particularly if applied
when they are wet with dew or rain. The
common gray cut-worm, which are so de
structive to almost all kinds of vegetable
plants at this season of the vear, will not
crawl over lresh lime; but the best way to
get rid of the pest is to look for and kill
them. They usually leed at night, or on

for his loss.
Reckless Marriage Contracts—A Warning
The Eev. J. H. Noble, of Troy, married
a runaway couple, the other day. not sto
ping to inquire as to tho wisLes of tho
iriends of the parties, though the girl was
but sixteen years old and being acquainted
with her family, he must have known that
there were serious objections to her private
marriage. And it seems that he had been
equally indiscreet on other occasions. Wm.
Deusberry write to the Troy Whig to con
demn him. "I experienced," he says, "the
same deep writhing agony only a few years
ago ,wheu the announcement was made to me
by a neighbor that my little girL only 16 years
old, had been clandestinly married by this
injudicious, unfeeling reverend in question.
My feelings can better be imagined than
described when I learned that the cere
mony of my daughter had been performed
in a dwelling of a.very questionable charac
ter, in a secret and cowardly manner."
There s something very 6trange in the
fact that such marriages are by no means
uncommon, and that the clergymen who
perform the ceremony are frequently men
of the highest respectability. It is hardly
possible that familiarity with marriage
services can breed for them a certain
contempt in the eyes of these clergymen.
The relation is perhaps the mo6t 6acred
of any which it is in the power of men
and women to enter into, and should never
be lightly accepted, whatever the circum
stances of those who aspire to it may be.
Yet girls and boys, running away from
their parents, find no difficulty in getting
themselves united. Disparity in age,
feebleness in intellect, drunkeness, even at
the time of the acceptance of the bond, ap
pear to be no bar to marriage, though in
addition, it may be apparent to the officiat
ing clergyman that the parties have es
caped from those who have the right to
protect them. This is all wrong, and a
clergyman who bo imposes upon the sacred
ness of the bond ought to be severely punished.
Two Cubans Meet Their Fate Bravely.
The last victims of Spanish vengeance,
two bro hers, Gaspar and Diego Aguero,
paid with their lives, on the 14th inst, the
penalty of their patriotism to the cause of
Cuba and, like the brave Goicouria, met
death as only the heroic can without fear
and with perfect calmness and serenity.
Both were young men of superior educa
tion and noble birth, belonging to the old
blueblood families of Camagney. The
elder brother was the more obnoxious of
the two to the Spaniards, having been once
before captured by Valmaseda and sent to
Spain, from whence he escaped and re
turned to the insurgent ranks. The next
morning after their capture they were
hastily tried by drum-head court martial
and sentenced to die by the gar
rote. Before being taken to execution the
irons were removed from them that they
might bid each other farewell. As the
chains dropped from their limbs they em
braced each other; the elder looked firmly
and lovingly in his brother's eyes, quietly
remarking in French, "Mon frere, mowons
tranqu'dles el sans parler" let ns die tran
quilly and without saying anything- The
procession was then formed. The brothers
thanked some of the gentlemen present for
acts of kindness, and both mounted the
scaffold, Gaspar, the elder, with a smiling
countenance, smoking a cigar as uncon
cernedly as if he was going to a party, aid
ed the executioner to tie his hands. The
nsual movements were then gone through
with by the hangman, a death-like silence
ensued, a twist of the iron screw by the
masked man was given, a convulsive
twitching of the muscles was seen, and the
souls of the unfortunate victims had sped
A New Story on Tom Corwin.
Donn Piatt, in one of his Washington
letters, relates the following anecdote illus
trating the politeness and humor of the
late Tom Corwin, of Ohio:
He arrived at Dayton, Ohio, late one
night very tired from a long Btage ride
during the day. The great humorist and
statesman retired to bed, observing as he
did so that some one occupied another bed
in the opposite corner. Tbe Honorable
Tom was Boon fast asleep, and snoring tre
mendously. The other traveler bore the
infliction as long as human endurance
could go, and then he sang out:
"Oh! sir. sir. Bir."
"Hello, hello," cried Tom, sitting tip
wildly in bed; "what is the matter I
Oh! sir, exclaimed the sufferer, "you
"Did I snore?" demanded Corwin. "Is it
possible ? I really beg your pardon, bit.
And so saying, he dropped asleep again,
and again the dreadful snoring went on.
The poor man in the next bed again com
plained. "Sir, sir; oh! sir."
"I 6ay, what is it ?" responded Corwin.
"Y'ou are Bnoring again, sir."
"Wny, really, Bir, I am ashamed of my
self. I beg a thousand pardons for impo
liteness." And again the Senator sought repose;
but the snoring was worse than ever, ana
the sufferer once more called attention to
"Look here, sir," cried the Senator,
"you have wakened me np three times, and
twice I have apologized, what more can a
gentleman ask? Now I am tired and
if you disturb me again, I'll brain you with
The Late Mark Lemon.
Mark Lemon, whose death is announced
by the cable, was, we believe, a Jew by
birth. He held a conspicuous position
among the journalists of London, by reason
of his long connection with Punch. When
Punch was established, in 1841, he became
one of its editors, and two years later he
was appointed sole manager, and so re
mained till the day of his fleath. The ob
vious comic relation of bis name to the
name of the paper suggested that the acid
ity of Punch was the ingredient he suppli
ed, bnt there was nothing sour in his na
ture, and no professional satirist was ever
more kindly spoken of by the world.
Besides conducting Punch he was a fre
quent contributor to Dickens' Household
V ords before it was merged into All tbe
Year Round, and ot late years has been the
literary editor of the London Illustrated
News. Though he wrote industriously, his
contributions to literature were mostly of
an ephemeral character. His most popular
work, perhaps, was the play of "lhe se
rious Family," which was not a good basis
for an enduring reputation. He wrote
several extremely dull novels, not one of
which had even a moderate success.
In person Mark Lemon was large and
corpulent For several years past he has
been afflicted with deafness, and when Mr.
Dickens resumed his readings in St James
Hail in 18G5, after a long intermission see
ing Lemon in the audience, tho reader
would not begin until a chair near the plat
form had been specially set apart for his
Mark Lemon died in his sixty-first year.

The labgest faeu in England consists of
3,000 acres, and belongs to a man with the
Yankee name of Samuel Jones. In its cul
tivation he follows the "four-course" sys
tem, the whole extent of the farm being
divided into four great crops 750 acres of
wheat, 750 of barley and oats, 750 of seeds,
beans, peas, etc, and 750 of roots.
His live stock is valued as follows: Sheep,
$35,000; horses, $15,000; bullocks, $12,000;
pigs, $2,500. The oilcake and corn pur
chased annually amounts to $20,600, and
artificial fertilizers about $8,000. The en
tire cost of manure, in various forms used,
annually costs about $15,000. Sheep are
claimed as the most profitable stock he
keeps, Irom which he realizes about $20,-
000 a year. His whole income from the
farm, though not Btated, can be little less
than $100,000. ,
The Trade in Lobsters.
Boston is the great lobster market of the
East, and supplies a very large home trade,
as well as an inland and Western trade,
with palatable stock for salads and other
rare dishes. The vessels are from twenty
to sixty tons burden, and each has an open
well or compartment amidships into which
the sea water is let by holes bored through
the bottom of the vessel. Into these wells
the lobsters are put as fa6t as they are
caught, and they are, therefore, preserved
alive a very important consideration, as
we shall show by and by. The apparatus
used for catching a lobster it called a
"trap," sometimes a "pot" It is about
four feet long, eighteen inches wide and
the same in height, the end section
looking like a D. Altogether it bears
some resemblance to a long bird cage.
On the bottom and sides it is formed of
narrow slats, and on the ends is a narrow
net-work of stoat twine, inclining inward,
in which is a hole about five inches in
diameter. This trap, well baited with
fresh fish, is put down by means of a rope,
it having sinkers attached, and the rope
tied to a buoy. A number of these traps
are thus secured in different places upon
the lobster grounds. The vessel is anchor
ed in a central position, and the traps are
visited at stated times by men in yawls or
doreys, hauled up and emptied of their
prisoners, and the latter transferred to the
well of the vessel. After an average fare
has been received the vessel runs into port
and discharges her living cargo into long,
floating boxes, called "cars." These
cars are about twenty-five feet Ion?,
ten wide, and four or five feet deep, and
have openings on the bottom and sides to
allow the water to pass in and out but not
large enough to allow the smallest lobster
to escape. The cars have a capacity for
holding about twenty thousand lobsters.
Fiom the cars they are taken as wanted,
and boiled ready lor market They are
transferred fron. place to place in large
scoop nets. Lobsters, like other fish, mi
grate to deeper waters in the winter sea
son, and are caught in from twenty to forty
fathoms, and sometimes, we hear, as deep
as seventy fathoms. The spring trade
usually opens the first of March, though
lobsters are caught in greater or less
quantities throughout the whole of the
winter. For 6hipment, they " are usually
boiled and barreled up, and sent off
by raU. In the winter season they wil
keep good for a long time, but like all fish
will spoil in Bummer if not kept on ice.
Routed by the Tuef. Another wreck .of
the British nobility has stranded in the
bankruptcy court, and this time it is a piti
ful disaster. Lord Courtenay, eldest son
of the Earl of Devon, is the victim, and
the turf is, as usual, the cause of this ruin.
For several generations the fortunes of this
house have been on a decline, but the pres
ent Earl, on coming into title, set to work
vigorously and soberly to save the inherit
ance in England to his son. He labored
hard, lived economically, cleared off mort
gages by the sale of territory in Ireland,
and practised great self-denial in order
to accomplish his truly noble purpose.
But the wild blood of his ancestors show
ed itself in the young man, who persisted
in a career as extravagant as his father's
was exemplary. Time and again he was
righted and put in the way of making him
Belf respectable, and at last he was sent to
Parliament as a means of turning his mind
to ether subjec ts. But even that forcing
bed for young British patricians could ef
fect nothing for him, and he has at length
become bankrupt and been forced to resign
his seat. In this way ends, not only the
hopes of a noble father, but a house the
most illustrious in lineage in Great Britain,
which came of the stock of the old Greek
emperors, and was allied with the Capets.
How to Make Coffee. The American
Builder tells how to make good coffee
something which every housekeeper ought
to know as follows. Will somebody try
it, and let us know the result: "First, sol
emnly determine in your mind never to al
low an ounce of ground coffee to enter the
door of your kitchen. If no one about the
house understands the art of roasting cof
fee, then buy it ready roasted; and try and
find a dealer who has not soaked all the es
sential juices from the coffee Lefore put
ting it in the oven. If the roasled
berry is about twice as large as
when green, depend upon it the scalawag
Great Humbug Pea and Coffee Company
have defrauded you. Get the earthen pot
you cannot make good coffee or tea in a
tin vessel and put the ground coffee in a
clean white flannel bag and be sure to put
enough in, and drop the bag into the pot
Pour on boiling water and let it steep; do
not boil it The coffee will steep in twenty
minutes. Never break an egg into coffee.
and never fill up with water the second
time. Pour on in the beginning the
amount of water needed. An ord inary tea
cupful of ground coffee is sufficient for
three persons. Use Java, Mocha, or Java
and liio mixed. Follow this receipt, and
you will never complain of poor coffee.
It is a waste to overstock pastures in
which milch cows graze. Abundance of
grass is what cows need. They should be
able to get all they will eat withost work
ing too hard for it Five cows in plentiful
pasture will make as much butter or cheese
as ten on tne same Held; so mat, jwin
five cows will yield as much profit as $G00
in ten cows, with one-half the liability to
loss by disease.

IMITATION POROUS PLASTERS.
Perforated Piasters) ia Imitatloa f
are being; offered for sale. These we have seen are a
preparation of "lead plaster, and calculated to induce
paralysis, eostivenesa and colics.
To give relief from pain is the object of ALLCOCK'S
POROUS PLASTERS, which are warranted to contain
ONLY INNOCENT DRUCS,
without a particle of lead or any mineral whatever ia
their composition. We have made them for twenty
seven years, and will always prepare them as heretofore.
They are harmless; but for local pains nothing has ever
proved so vastly curative, as aa outward application, aa
tbe justly celebrated
Porous Plaster of Kr. Allcock.
Even stricture of the bronchial tabes, dropsy of the
heart, tumors, internal and ovarian, are said to have
been cured by this plaster. Bnt ia all uses for s
strengthening plaster, and for nervous and lecal pains.
we have the testimony of the first physicians of the
United States and of Europe in their favor.
How great the comfort to have a suffocating cough, to
have sharp pains of the chest, queer creeping sensations
around the heart, eared by the simple remedy of a clean.
flexible, entirely unobjectionable plaster t Bnt internal
tumors, considered of a fatal character, are also cored
by this mild and innocent application, which, acting
like a second akin, produces a steady pressure, by which
absorbtion, resulting in ease at once, and ultimate cure.
Being a preparation from Frank en cense. Rubber and
Burgundy Pitch, they seem to ooraess the quality of
A CCTJMULATLS Q ELECTRICITY
and imparting it to the body, whereby the circulation
of tbe blood becomes eaualized npon the parts wbete
applied, canning pain and mot bid action to cease. The
Porous Plasters are flexible, and found of great help to
those who have weak backs or pain in the side. Kspe
cially are they valuable to those who have neglected
colds. They are often preventives of consumption ; nay.
they are believed to have loosened the grasp of this
terrible affliction, snd been mainly instrumental in
effecting a core. In variable climates thev should be
won on the breast or between the shoulders or over tbe
kidneys, by those who are subject to take cold easily.
This simple olaa will soon produce s constitutional
rigor that will enable it to resist extraordinary changes
of temperature. Experience has proved the Porous

Nervous Affection of the Head Cured.
For two tears I hava been s great sufferer from nea
ralgia in the head, and found only temporary relief
from ail the various remedies that 1 have tried until I
applied one of Allcock s Porous Plasters. I cat it into
three strins Discing one under each shoulder blade and
t he other over the small of the back, and for the past
three men ths I have had scarcely a twinge of the old pain.

no time in making a trial of the wonderful Porous

The counter irritant effect of A Iloock's Porous Plas
ters is nrodoced in such a mild and gradual way, they
so invigorate the circulation around the parte to which
they are applied, and exert npon au nervous aiseasea
sucn a great sedative influence, tnat l place inem con
fidently at the bead ot every plaster now in nse.
Tr. .Tohnnon. of Hartford, aavs:
My daily experience con arms Lhe very superior excel
lence of tout Porous Plasters. At thia moment ef
writing a man applies for one. who, by entanglement
in a shaft of machinery, had both his legs broken, spine
severely injured, and was for nearly a year entirely
helpless. This man found relief very soon by the PPl
eation of a plaster to his spine. He was soon enabled
to work, and now ne labors as well aa ever, ne woaia
cheerfully pay nve dollars for a single plaster if they
conla not be bad at a lower rate. Surgeons snouir
make nee of these perforated plasters to the exclusion
of all others, as their flexibility and adhesiveness are
greatly in advance of all other piasters witn wmcu i
am acquainted, while the perforations peculiar to them
render tnem grea.iy superior lo au oiners for oroinarv
surgical uses. Knowing tne piasters to oe so nseim, i
have no scruples that my sentiments should be known.
