Truth and Poetrt. Milton puts into
tho mouth of Lucifer, in "Paradise Lost,'
these memorable words "To be weak is
miserable." Never was a truer sentenco
written than this supposed to be wrung
from the arch-fiend in his impotence and
agony. Every victim of nervous debility
or of that depressing languor which is one
of tho accompaniments of dyspepsia and
biliousness, can testify to the misery
of mind and body which they involve.
The motive power of the system is par
tially paralyzed; tbe mind is haunted by
anxiety and fear ; and tbe sufferer is as in
capable of applying himself energetically
to any kind of business as if he were under
tbe benumbing influence of catalepsy.
Thie terrible mental and physical condi
tion need not, however, be endured for
forty-eight hours by any human being.
Plaxtatiok Bitters is an absolute
specific for all tbe torments which a de
ranged stomach, a disordered liver, and
shattered nerves, superinduce.

O. K. White, whose ideas of law and or

$5 for disturbing tbe usual quietude of tbe

Most lifo insurance companies change
local agents so often that a man hardly

On Thursday night last, between the

ful scene was enacted in the vicinity of
Fifth street. It was of a puroly domestic
nature in itself, but was carried to such an
extent as to disturb tbe quictudo of all
within hearing distance. A man and wife,
whose names we did not loam, engaged in
regular set-to fight, and carried it to
such an extent as to awaken thoir little
girl, who, through fright, began to scream
in a manner tbat brought several neigh
