The Doctor's Mistake.
- One of the old mistakes of the
profession was to think that there
were no other ways of curing dis
ease except those which had been
handed down from former times.
It is not to be denied that the
Doctors have done ereat tilings
for the world. But when it conies
right down to the real curing ol
disease, it must be admitted that
Brown's Iron fitters has done en
ough tocarn the generous gratitude
of this whole present generation,
including the medical profession.
There are no mysteries or secrets
about the compounding of Brown's
Iron Bitters. This preparation ol
iron is the only preparation which
will not injure teeth or stomach. In
this it is beyond comparison better
than the other preparations, which
are mischievous and injurious.
You need not fear a mistake in
trying Brown's Iron Bitters. Your
druggist has it. It gives vigor to the
feeble, and new life to the dyspep
tic. Children take it, not only with
safety, but with great advantage. 6

TII12 QUAKER rOET.
Chat with JohnC. Whittier Some
of 111 Opinions and lUnil-
Half wny up the main street, well re
moved from tlii unpoetic bustle, I
catnu upon a hoiiso that is worthy of a
picture. It is a white frame cottasre of
that box-like architecture so common
to the country villages of this section.
The center is two stories hi-ih with one
story wings on either side. The marks
of age are apparent, though everything
is neat and tidy, in appearance it is
more like the house of a thrifty me
chanic than a man of letters whose
fame is world wide. Shade trees and
shrubbery fill the large yard, which
blooms in the summer with the check
ered green of foliage and the pink and
white of flowers; but in this "season of
mist and mellow fruitfulness," all this
color is turned by the pinching band of
frost, and the greenwood is covered
witli yellow leaves, harbingers of the
season of which Whiltior wrote:
And Autumn In bis leaflos Bowers,
Is waiting for the Winter's anow.
A graveled walk leads to the front
door of the house, and my pull at the
bell was answered by a tidily-dressed
lady, with a round, cheery, good-natured
face, the poet's niece, I believe.
She extended a pleasant welcome and
led the way into a neat little parlor
opening from the hall. A moment
later there entered a tall man, six feet
or more high, I should say. He walked
briskly across the floor with an elastic
step. Ills dress was the plain unpre
tentious garb of a Quaker; the dark,
high-buttoned vest, the bl&ck," 'cutaway
coathavlng iugfr He faintest suspicion
0 Velvet on the collar and facings of
the small, ear-shaped lappels. His face
wears that peculiar expression denoting
quiet thought and a gentle disposition.
Round and pleasant, it is framed with
gray whiskers, shaved only from the
Tips which are pressed firmly together.
The countenance is rather serious In
composure,, but brightens with the In
terest of conversation. The dark eyes
are set well back beneath heavy brows
and tho high forehead appears unusu
ally long from the absence of hair on
the crown of the head. Although 77
years old he has the step and bearing
of a man of 50. I had heard that he
was failing, and was pleased to find
how cheerful, entertaining and well
preserved he was.
"This is John G. Whittier," I invol
untarily exclaimed, as he took my hand
and shook it warmly.
"Yes; and thee is from Philadelphia,
I wonder if thee knows any of my
friends thereP Hardly, I suppose, for
the people and the city have so chang
ed. It has become a metropolitan place,
nnd its distinctive Quaker features are
scarcely perceptible any more, I sup
pose. Even the friends who are left
nave changed. The quaint old build
ings, I believe are still there simple
monuments, recalling the characteris
tics of the people who at one time gave
the city its individuality."
Whittior's fondness for Longfellow
was everywhere apparent, and when it
was remarked upon he Baid:
"Yes, we were warm friends. He
was a delightful man and a great poet
The last time he was here in my house,
he came in with Seuator Sumner and
Mr. Charles Lanman, of Washington.
All saw little of each other during the
last years of his life. My health did
not permit me to go about much. Not
long before he died he wrote for me to
come and see him. I was not able to
go at once; but as soon as I could I
went to him. I was too late, however,
for when I reached his house he was
then unable to Bee any one, and soon
after passed away.
"Hawthorne, Emerson, Longfellow
and myself were always friends. There
were no jealousies between us, and
we each took a pride in the work and
success of the others. We would ex
change notes upon our productions,
and if one saw a kindly notice of the
other it was always cut out and sent
"Hawthorne I regarded as the great
est master of the English language.
He was the superior of Addison. I
never knew nor read of a man who
could build such beautiful stories in
words that the humblest could under
stand. "Emerson was not only a great
writer, but a philosopher. Our rela
tions were very close. He often visited
me here, and I him. We saw more of
one another than did Longfellow and L
Emerson has written some things that
will live forever. They are 'The Prob
lem,' 'Each and All and perhaps
twenty other pieces that I could name.
He has a simple, easy way of writing
that gave his work great power. My
sister used to say that she liked him
better than any man who came here,
because he never talked over her head.
That was really his strength."
The conversation then drifted into
the methods of these groat writers
while at work. Mr. Whittier said:
"I was unlike any of the rest I think,
for I never had any methods. When I
felt like It I wrote; and I never had the
health nor patience to work over it af
terwards. It usually went as it was
oricinallv completea. Emerson wrote
with great care, and would not only
revine his manuscript carefully, but I
have heard him say that he would fre
quently rewrite the article upon tne
prool sheets. Longfellow, too, was a
very careful writer. He wrote and re
wrote and would lav his work by and
then revise it. He often would consult
with his friends about his productions
oeiore tney were given to the worm.
He, therefore, sent his workout as per
fect as great care and a brilliant intel
lect could make it I have lived mostly
a seciuaea me witn iitue patience to
draw upon, and only a few friends for
associates. What writing I have done
has been for the love of it. I have ever
been timid of what I hive penned. It
is really a marvel to me flint I have
gained "any literary reputation from my
productions. "Boston Herald.

Crices for lodging hun in til j neighbor

As you ride by a holul on a hot day
it looks very inviting. If the house be
a large one, you will si o room after
room stretching backwards. In the
center of the houso is an open court, in
which is a Japanese garden, such as no
ono else can make. Kockeries of old
and curiously shaped rocks, plants and
flowers artistically arranged, and some
times a pond with goldfish. The par
lor is the back room of the house.
There is really very little difference in
rooms, as none of them contain a soli
tary piece of furniture. TJio woodwork
of a parlor is sometimes very pretty,
and there are pictures, with sometimes
a poem written in large characters on
silk, hanging on the walls. The rooms
are generally scrupulously clean. The
floors of all Japanese houses are cov
ered with thick straw mats. Ou enter
ing a hotel (or any house) your shoes
must come oil'. A Japanese never wears
anything heavier than a stocking when
in the house. Whenever there is any
woodwork in the floor it is kept highly
polished, as are also the verandas,
which are an indispensible accompani
ment to a hotel, as it is by them that
the various rooms are reached. The
wood is so smooth that it will show a
scratch, or a mark made by a nail in
the shoe, as easily as a polished table
would do so.
On arriving at a hotel you are shown
to a room, and a girl waiter immedi
ately brings tea and cake. The Japan
ese custom is to give a little present of
money at this time; a greater or less
sum according to the amount of atten
tion you may demand.
The prices of lodging are generally
fixed at stated sums for first, second
and third class lodgers. This price in

teacher was with me. He had one
parlor and I had another. Our food,
rooms, bedding were precisely alike.
He was charged forty-five sen for room
and meals; I was charged fifty sen for
room only, and in addition for every
separate item of food. I refused to pay
my bill, but finally was obliged to pay
it or I should have made myself a great
deal of trouble. Most hotels prefer not

extra for them. Butwe seldom lind these
