After the birth of my first child m .
recovery w as very slow, and it seemed t
me that I should never get well again
The doctors who treated me did not seem
to understand my case, or if they did, were
unable to restore me to my former health.
I grew weaker and poorer for months and
thought I should die. Finally I was in
dueed to try Merrell's Female Tonic, and
to my joy and surprise I found myself get
ting stronger almost from the first dose, an 1
after using one bottle I was as strong and
as well ever before. Respectfully,
Mks. Mattie A. McPuiel.
I feel very grateful tor the wonderful
cures performed with Ely's Cream Balm. I

Thrro comes ti time in tho life of a
man whose besetting sin is charity
whrn ho begius to wonder if it isn't
better to bo cold-blooded und frigid to
all whom he chances to meet. I have
it young friend who is just now think
ing over this proposition. His sympa
thetic nature was played upon by tho
ragged otl'-eouring of the "curbstono
who polished his boots daily. Although
this very charitable young man haij no
superabundance of wealth, ho had two
pairs of trousers. Ono pair was of tho
spie-and-span, latest cut, and costly
pattern. They had hung three days,
however, in his room, waiting for "nil
event on which ho had set his heart.
The pair he was wearing had given
way in several places to the caresses of
t;ni' Tho other day, whilo softened
by tho bootblack's poverty, ho gavo
him an order on his landlady for ono
pair of trousers; his expectation at tho
time was to be at his room and shift
tho old for tho new beforo tho wretch
of the curbstone could deliver tho or
der. Later in tho day he went to his
room and divested himself of tho an
cient raiment. lie saw his boy down
on tho sidewalk, and thinking to re
lievo him of a journey up stairs, ho
pitched the trousers out of tho window,
with tho remark, "There they are."
He then went to his wardrobe for tho
new attire, but nothing was there. Ho
searched tho room without avail, lie
hurried to the window to call back his
boy, but he had vanished. He locked
his" door and succeeded in rousing his
landlady, who had a keyhole interview
with him from tho hall. She informed
liirn that she had received his noto
soiuo timo beforo and had delivered to
tho boy tho articles mentioned. The
younp; man then realized that tho
urchin on tho sidewalk to whom ho
had thrown his old trousers was not
the ono to whom ho had given tho or
der. "Med, .Ur."

Professor Hamilton, in a lato ad
dress on hygiene, denounces broad
cloth as an enemy to exercise, and
thereforo to health. Ho says: Ameri
can gentlemen havo adopted a national
costume, a thin, tight-fitting black suit
of broadcloth. To foreigners wo al
ways seem to bo in mourning; we travel
in black. Tho priest, tho lawyer, tho
doctor, tho literary man, the mechanic
and even tho day laborer, chooso al
ways tho samo black broadcloth a
stylo that ought never to havo been
adoptod out of tho drawing room or
tho pulpit, because it is a feeble and
expensive fabric, and because it is at
the north no protection against tho
cold, nor is it any nioro suitable at tho
south. It is too thin lo bo warm in
winter, aud too black to bo cool iu
summer; but especially do we object to
it because tho wearer is always soiling
it by exposure. Young men will not
play ball, pitch quoits, wrestle or tum
ble, or any other similar thing, lest
their broadcloth should be offended.
They will not go out into the storm,
because the broadcloth will lose its lus
tra if rain falls upon it; they will not
run because they havo no faith in tho
strength of their broadcloth; they dare
not mount a horse or leap a fence, bc
causo broadcloth, as everybody knows,
is so faithless. So theso young men,
and theso older men, theso merchants,
mechanics, and all, learn to walk, talk
and think carefully and soberly; they
seldom venture even to laugh to tho
full extent of their sides, because of
Too Much Concentration.
Two colored pugilists had a dispute
in Verbeketown tho other day, tho
issuo of which was to bo determined
in a contest with tho lists, Marquis of
Quecnsberry rules. The party adjourn
ed to a vacant lot adjoining, aud tho
preparation having been completed,
the young men squared off iu lino
stylo. Come fer mo," said ono as ho
put up his guards, and tho sparring
began cautiously. Iu a littlo whilo tho
other planted a stinging left-hander
on tho riht eyo of his antagonist,
sending him to tho ground with a thud.
Conio fer mo again," said tho plucky
Blu"Ter with renewed vehemence,
though evidently oozing conlidenco,
and "the samo left hand went out liko a
trip-hammer, and caught him on tho
samo spot. Jumping to his feot, the
invitation for a renewal of hostilities
in tho samo languago had scarcely been
given when tho third blow on tho old
place- sont him again to tho ground.
This timo he arose, but in a doubting
aud uncertain way, and adjusting his
ample mauls in front ol the Injured
eye said: "Say Bill; I don't think you
can knock mo out in dat way, but fer
do lub of de Lord scatter your licks."

A correspondent of tho Detroit Free
i'msH at Mobile, Ala., writes, giving an
aiieedolu about wooden nutmers wEich
strengthens tho conviction that the
manufacture of them was, in truth,
ono of the infant industries ol Connecti
cut. He says:
I see you discredit tho wooden nut
meg tradition. In 1828 I heard the
following from a gentleman who had
just graduated at liowdoin college, so
that it dates somewhere in thefour
years just then expired. Anion tho
medical students was an oldish practi
tioner from New Brunswick, who had
come to rub up his ideas and to got a
genuine degree of M. D. Ho happoned
to bo in a crowd, where some story was
told of some sharp tricK, at which ono
of the company remarked: "That
beats tho wooden nutmegs!" The New
Brunswicker blushed, and in some con
fusion exclaimed: "How did you hear
of tho wooden nutmegs?" Ho had
given himself away, and they mado
him tell tho story. He kept a small
stock of drugs, to which ho added an
assortment of spices, etc., as is the
wont in country drug stores. During
tho war of 1812-15, sonio of theso go"
quito scarce, and with tho return of
peace tho smuggling peddlers made a
rush over tho liuo and did a profitable
business. Our doctor took the first op
portunity of tho kind to replenish Lis
own stock, buying, among other things,
several pounds of nutmegs, as he knew
there were none in the country, and ho
could disposoof them to other country
storekeepers. But beforo ho had dis
posed of any his wifo took occasion to
sample them, and found them mado of
wood. Ho hushed the thing up, hop
incr, as ho had bought tho peddler a
whole stock, that it would never bo
heard of, and had so far supposed that
it was the only case of tho kind. So
far as the collesfo catalogue shows, my
informant is still living (Silas Baker, of
Si:ni':iih Me.), aged 77 years.

A wan little woman, with a tired,
painful expression, sat in a suburban
railroad depot late S:.:t r !:'.y evening.
In her arms she held a p.:!e, pinched
faced baby that was seized, at brief in
tervals, with paroxysms of coughing.
With each return of the distressing
cough tho baby seemed to grow woak
er ami the mother more disturbed.
Piles of bundles of various shapes and
sizes were ranged on each side of her.
Some of them fell at her feet. To theso
she gave little heed. She cast anxious
glances at tho open door as if momen
tarily expecting some ouo. Every foot
fall on the otit.iide brightened her per
ceptibly. The lines on her Lrow deep
ened and her agonized face grew paler
after each look that brought only dis
appointment. Bending tenderly over
her little suffering babe, stupor seemed
to overcome her. Aroused by tho ba
by's cries of pain, she started up and
looked appealinglv around, exclaiming
anxiously: "Oh, God! will ho never
She sat late into the night. Train
after train went, and still she budged
not. The last ono had gono for tho
night. Sympathetic bystanders inquir
ed why she lingered.
"George told me to wait for him,"
shfl replied, absently.
The baby had remained quiet for
some time, and now no longer respond
ed to its mother's caresses. A gutter
begrimed man staggored into the room.
Stalking over to the group, ho shook
tho littlo woman roughly and bado her
get ready to go home. Without looking
up, she said: "I knew it would breaS
my heart if George took to drink again;
but baby's all right."
An insane mother, a dead baby, and
drunken husband presented n sickening
tableau in tho depot at midnight. C7t-
