antidote to the vitiating literature so
abundantly current. The "SATURDA.?

Fruit as a Medicine.
The importance to health of
eating plenty of fresh, ripe fruit
at this season of the year can
not be too strongly argued. No
imported tropical products, but
the fruits of our own latitude
and climate. Not green or rot
ten fruit. All the patent pills
and half of the physicians pre
scriptions for average human
, indisposition are for one simple
purpose to drain the system of
dead and injurious matter.
Headache, dullness, sluggish
ness, fever and two-thirds of
the symtoms which precede
some form or other of disease
have their origin in imperfect
human drainage. With a very
large proportionu of people a cer
tain consumption of ripe fruit
will regulate this economy. It
is better than any pill, for the
action so induced is regular and
constant in proportion to the
supply. At best, the action of
any drug is spasmodic. It is
only a choice between two evils.
Fruit is only a food and medi
cine also recommended by the
palate. It nourishes and clean
ses. Yet thousands of people
live on year after year whose
daily experience is that of "not
feeling very well," whose sole
trouble is more or less consti
pation. The burden of their
diet is meats, salt and fresh,
bread and potatoes. Thus they
go perpetuating their misery
and ignorant of the simple reme
dy within their reach. Or to
effect the necessary action they
use citrade, pills, aperients and
occasionally, when an extra
stoppage with all its disagreea
ble symtoms occurs, a dose of'
salts and senna, rhubarb or
"blue mass." Of course a long
neglect of the clogged-up sys
tem render such remedies im
paratively necessary. The range
of fruit is large. Apples, pears,
peaches, berries of various sorts,
prunes, and all -of these dried
lor winter consumption. Try
this remedy. Cut loose from
doses, doctors, citrates and pills.
Study the working of your own
system. No doctor can do this
for you. It is your own house,
and you should best know how
to take care of it. Don't de- i
spise allusion to these plain, 4
homely facts. Your strength of
body and mind, your cheerful
ness of temper and clearness of i
head, your skill in doing busi
ness, driving bargains and mak- (
ing money, all depend very much
in keeping the di ainage of the 1
system in as perfect a condition
as possible. Napoleon attribut
ed the loss of his first battle to
a clogged stomach. Many a,
man has failed at the trying I
hour because his blood was t
charged with impurities. When
blood is one-third dead matter,
the man or woman is also one
third dead. Moral courage,
confidence, decision, with pres
ence of mind, good address,
powerful magnetic influence and
the right word and action at the
right time and place, depend for
their force, vigor and presence
very much on proper foodly
A case is related in the Vete
rinarian for Februay by Mr. P. of
Cork, of a man who contracted
charbon from some cattle af
fected with the malady. The
disease commenced with the
alnpearance of a yellow spot on
his arm, surroulded by a dark
red line, together with a lnmp
in the axilla. The next day be
became unconscious and raving.
The prognosis given by the
doctors called in was very
grave; but recovery took place
in a few days after the adminis
tration of chlorate of potash,
thirty grains of which were giv
en at once, and half-doses every
four hours, and then increased
to twenty-a remedy which.had
been successfnlly employed in
the case of the affected cattle to
which it had been given.-Lon
A Deer with the garb of an
Arrow in his Heart.
Yesterday a great curiosity
was placed on our tablesa deer's
heart containing the flint barb
tof an asrow. Last Sunday Mr. I
E. Sharp, of Areata, was obt oti
Boynton's Prairie on a deer*
hunt. He saw a large five-point =
buck, and brought it down with
his rifle. Taking off the hide
and securing the heart and oth
er rare bits, he started home.
On arriving there, Mrs. Sharp
boiled the heart, and when the
meal was ready placed it on the
table. In attempting to cut the
heart, the knife struck against
something hard. The lady split
the heart open. and in the flesh
part the flint barb of an arrow
was found. It must have been
there a long time, as the flesh
was calloused all around it, and
the scar, where the barb enter
ed, is plain to be seen. This is
quite a curiosity, as only a few
such instances are known to be
on record. - HIumbddt (Cal.)
The experience of the steamer
Knight' Templar lends some col
or to the claim that the San
Francisco was wrecked upon a
new and hitherto unknown rock.
When about eleven miles from
the Island of Galita, Tunis,
where fhe water, according to
the chart was a thousand fath
oms deep, the Knight Templar
suddenly found herself with the
ocean seething white all about
her. There was a submarine
rumbling lasting about a minute
and the vessel suddenly struck
about fifteen feet from her stem
upon a ledge of- rock. Four
hours thereafter she sank. The
theory is a submarine volcano
and an upheaval of the ledge;
and if the San Francisco's cap
tain can make his facts fit such
a theory he will be relieved from
the suspicions of careless or ig
norant navigation which is now
entertained in his case.
Among Russian women there
is no happier class than the
wives of the priests of the Greek
Church. The rule forbidding a
second marriage of the priests
renders the wife secure of the
devotion of her husband, who,
in case of his becoming a wid
ower, retires to a monastery,
where his only compensation for
his loss is the hope of ecclesias
