A Rf.markahi.e Result. It makes no
difference how many physicians or how
much medicine vou have tried, it is now an
ctiblished fact that German Syrup is the
only remedy which has given conilete sat
isfiutim in severe cux s of lung disease
It is true there are yet thousands of persons
who arc predisposed to throat nnd lung af
fections, consumption, hemonhaces. asthma
severe colds settled on the breast, pnut
nionia, whooping cough, etc, who have no
lnonal knowledge of RuM-hec'. German
Syrup. To such we would say that 50,000
dozen were sold last vear without one ctn

A TRANG.ni, nervous ststkm can never
Ik? psessed by those whose digestion and
assimilative organs are in a state of chronic
disorder. Weak stomachs make weak
nerves. To restore vigor and quietude to
the latter, the firt must !e invigorated and
regulated. The ordinary sedatives may
tranquilize the nerves for a while, but they
tun never, like 1 Ins-tetter's Stomach Hitters,
remove the causes of nervous debility. That
sujicrb invigorant and corrective of (lis
ordi red conditions of the alimentary organs
has also the effect of imparting tone to the
nerves. The dulicate tissues of which they
hre constituted, when weakened in conse
quence of impoverishment of the blood, re
sulting from imiicrfect digestion and as
similation, draw strength from the fund of
vitality developed in the system by the bit
ters, which imparts the required impetus to
the nutritive functions of the stomach, en
riches the circulation, and give tone and
regularity to the secretive and evacuativc
Mark Twain ox Profanity. In a note
to the publishers of bis justly celebrated
Scrap Bixk, the famous hunvirist observes
that he invented and patented it, "not to
make money out of it, but to economize the
the profanity of this country. For," he
continues, "you know when the uverage
man wants to find his scrap book lie can't
find his paste then he swears; or if lie finds
it, it is dried so hard that it is only fit to
eat then he swears; if he uses mucilage,
it mingle with the ink, nnd next year lie
cannot read his scrap. The result is barrels
and barrels of profanity." There is another
circumstance in life under which the hveragc
man is liable to indulge in unlimited pro
fanity. It i when the "family physician"
sends him bill of one or two hundred dol
lars for treating his wife, while that lady's
face has become paler than ever, through
the merciless persecutions of caustics and
mechanical contrivances. If he does not
impulsively send the whole medical pro
fession on a subterranean journey, it is be
cause he is a saint and deserves to be trans
lated. The local treatment generally em
ployed by physicians in this class of diseases
is not only barbarous but productive of
almost irreparable harm. Dr. Pierce' Fa
vorite Prescription, as a uterine tonic and
and restorative, has won unqualified praisa
from thousands of grateful women.

The ancients had queer ideas alsout
mourning for the dead.
The F.gyptian women ran through the
streets crying, with their bosoms exposed
ami their hair disordered.
The Lycians regarded mourning as un
manly1, and they compelled men who went
into mourning to put on female garments.
In Greece, when a Mpulr General died,
the whole army cut off their hair and the
manes of their horses.
At the present day, the Arabian women
stain their hands and feet with indigo,
which they suffer to remain eight dnvs.
They also carefully abstain from milk tin

color doc not accord with the gloom of
In China the mourning color is white.
Mourning for a parent or husband is re
quired there bv a law, under a penalty of
sixty blow amt a year' banishment. When
the Emperor dies, all his subjects let their
hair grow for a hundred days.
In th Fcjce Islands, on the tenth day of
mourning the women scourge all the men
except the highest chiefs. Another fash
ionable custom there require the friends
nnd relatives of the deceased to assemble
on the fourth day after the funeral ami pic
ture to themselves the amount of corruption
the corpse has sustained by that time.
1 In the Sandwich Island persons desirous
of going into mourning paint tho lower
part, of their face black, and knock out
their front teeth. No doubt this cause a
very sincere kind of mourning for tho pres
ent time. ' .
HODY-Hl'RNINO AT MILAN.
AN F.KOI.ISII KNIOITT CREMATED 1! IT A I.I
TIIK niTK WITNESSED BY YAKIOfS PK"'
A correspondent of tho Geneva Continent
writesrum Florence, April 19, as follows!
"A ceremony highly interesting to those
who advocate cremation took place in wnan
a few days ago. Italy has taken the lead
in introducing cremation, and many experi
ment nave iieen made in Milan, where ino
Cremation Society ha lecn a flourishing
institution, in to within a little more
than a year cremation could not Iki prac
ticed in Italy without a special permit
from the Minister or the Interior,
but now any Prefect of the Pro
vi nee ha power to sanction it, in cases
where the relative of the deceased and the
Cremation society jointly mako a jn tition
to disiiosc of itby burninir. Sir Henry Crok-
enden, who died in 18TB, left instructions
in hi will that his remain should be cre
mated, but owing to some law technicalities
his wishes could not le carried out till a
few day ago, when the English Home
minister granted permission to exhume tuc
iKwly and dispose of it according to the tes
tator's instructions; and thus it came to pass
that the remain of Sir Henry Crokenden
arrived in Milan last Monday under the
care of a few relative and friend of the de
ceased, and were at once solemnly convey
ed to tho cemetery. At V :i)0 on Tuesday
morning the lody wa quickly reduced to
ashes in the Gorini furnace. The rite was
witnessed by the friend of tho deceased
and various scientific Englishmen nnd Ital
ians. At all event cremation is urely
preferable to interment here in Ita'v,
where in the public cemeteries ns many as
four or five lsidie are frequently
buried coflinless in tbe same grave.
A decent funeral in the aristo
cratic Iloman Cutbohc cemetery
of San Minatato cost at least 1,000 francos,
and there are comparatively few families
who can afford to spend so much money,
even to show a mark of respect to their
deceased friends, and even then, after pay
ing the heavy fees, tbe mode of interment
leaves much to le desired. It is not in
harmony with the English idea to see a
corpse nailed down in a white deal liox
which is afterward wedged into a hole in a
wall and then bricked up, surrounded with
dozen of other small apertures, filled with,
or wuiting for their occupants.
Gail Hamilton wears very tight corset,
and sometimes, as she looks out of the win
dow dreamfully at the full moon, she turns
smilingly around to see if a man really is
there squeezing her, but her brow resumes
rigidly a she perceives it is nothing but
tho phantom of her hojx-s. Chicago Tri-
