A man who belonged lo a village
ritlo team was recently out on the
plains of Wyoming Territory looking
for game. Finally tho party sighted
an elk at SOU yards and prepared to
shoot him. Ho was a noble buck. The
member of the ritlo team put a blank
et down upon the sago brush and ar
tistically placed himself upon his hack
with his let t arm like a figure 2, sup
porting his neck, and his right arm
like a tigurc 7, sunpurting the aft cud
of the ritlo. Tnu meastii-o of tho
wind was taken mid tho sights

expert made a figure 's with his legs
and rested tho ritlo's bow between tho
toes of his shoos. The measuro of his
forefinger was now taken with a pat
ent mac hi no, and tho trigger was tiled
oil' slightly on tho near side in order
to bo adjusted to thu weight of tho
linger. Two men were thou sent out
to put lligs ouch sido of the elk to

The beginning of diseaso is slight de
bility or disorder of some of tho vital or
gans, the stomach, the liver or the bowels
usually. There dyspeptic symptoms, tlio
liver is troublesome, the skin grows tawney
and unhealthy looking, there are pains in
the right side or through tho right shoulder
blade. The climax is often tin utter pros
tration of the physical energies, perhaps a
fatal issue. Hut if tl)U difficulty is met in
time with Hohtetter's Stomach Hitters,
which is always effective as a remedy,
should he resorted to at an early stage,
there will he no reason to apprehend those
injurious subsequent effects upon the system
ofieii entailed by entirely cured diseases.
Far better is it also, to employ this safe
retneilical agent in fever aud ague, and
otiier malarial complaints, than' quinine
and other potent drugs, which, even when
they do prove etl'ectual for a time, ruin the
stomach and impair the general health.
The English diirl's Figure.
George Allied Townsend in writing
breezy lotiors from the English wa
tering places, gives us his viewsof tho
female form divine that ho has seen
in the surf on the other .side :
Tho Englishmen are often lino
swimmers, and there seems to he no
treacherous current here, bearing the
swimmer off to sea, and couscqueiill v
the nudi! bodies of young Unions ar'o
feeii half a mile out in thu water.
The women do not swim as much us
ours. EnglNi women bathe iu llai
nel, generally blue, with no sleeves,
the arms, which aro the best limbs
they have to show, being exposed to
the arm-pit. The sun does not scorch
those fine, muscular arms, bin mervly
puts a little haze or fog upon them lo
tempt their roses out. They all wear
bathing shoes, or rather slippers,
which do not bide the ankles, as the
pebbles here an I strong surf would
lacerate the bare feet. They wear
stockings in but few cases, and, I
think, wear corsets in the water but
little. The bathing dress is made.
looseish, particularly below the mid
dle, and is seldom belled. Tho legs
nre wide and not tied, so that tuo
llritish leg9 are often revealed in their
full length, and often abovo tho knee.
A cool, measured, and judicial view
inclines me to the conclusion that the
llritish leg is fair to middling. It
lacks three of tho adequate elements
of tho American limb tho larue,
round, tapering calf, the small ankle,
and the tapering instepped, well-born
foot Tho Uriti-h calf is liko a ban
dage tied on, bunching once and then
sliding away into leanness ; the wholo
foot of the English woman is a mas
culine article girded into abominable
shoes, which may bo sensible in de
sign, but are without symmetry. I
think we make tho best shoes iu the
world fr both men and women. "We
are the best-dressed people, although
the model of our styles is m inil'estly
Parisian. Continuing with the fe
male anatomy, I may say that Ameri
can girls resemble tho French more
than the English, yet resemble uoither
much. There is refinement of skin
and Latin contrasts in tho French
girl's face dillicull to surpass; but in
form the French woman is almost
without hip, unless sho is a laboring
woiiriu, and is planed otf like a board.
Her feet are comely, however, and tho
ankle is cut square, giving her free
dom without strength of motion
there. At llrigbtou I saw some few,
large specimens of beautiful viial lifo
in English girls ; such had generally
darkish hair, dark gray or brown
eyes, skins without m-cs, of a pale,
brunette tint, and bodies lluent, limbs
long, aud necks and beads cut tine and
clear of the slioulders.

An Enviable Reputation.
It is with pleasure we allude to the man
ufactures of thu well known chemists,
Joseph ljunictt & Co., of Uoston. They

Among the handicrafts which il
lustrate the condition of the arts at
various periods few are moro impor
tant than book-binding. A collec
tion of typical specimens of French
binding, from the time of Eve through
that of Le (iascan, Deromo and liozer
ian, to the day of Trautz-IJauzonnet,
would oiler a short history of French
decorative taste. A less systematic
and already partly scattered,' but still
interesting collections of bindings in
silver ami other metals is being ex
hibited in a shop at the corner of Bond
street and Uruiou street. Tho rem
iiant of tho liragge collection is there
011 view, and includes many quaint
European examples. No. l'J in the
catalogue is a modern Russian service
book cover iu silver and enamel, ex
ceedingly modern .and excessively de
based. Contrast ill, a binding iu solid
silver repoussc,witb figures of women
and children, tho style wonderfully
free and largo. This is an admirable
German work of the seventeenth cen
tury. A strange piece of old Russian
emoroideiy, set with pearls, is 1'2'J
the figures of tho dead Christ and the
women are not unlike tho manner of
iMarglieritouo d'Arezzo. Tho piece is
of tho til teen th century, at which
date Russia was entertaining several
Italian artists. A Koran case of en
ameled silver (Ol) is studded with
rods and greens of a pleasant Oriental
tone. A iruly French piece is tho
binding of a book of ' i-arctcc spiri
lue," embroidered and pain tod on
silk, with tlioilliy of a pretty girl's
face. There are also some odd old
"Guild-books," and bits of Dutch aud
French enamel, specimens of a stylo
of binding which has bo 'onio as ex
tinct as ilio U0J0. 1'ull Mull Ua-
