Slowly tke liour-liand of the clock moves
So slowly that no human eye hath power
To see it mme! Slowly in shine or shower
The painted ship abo\e lthomeward bound,
Sails, but seems motionless as if aground1
Yet both arrive at last and in his tower
The slumberous watchman wakes and strikes
A mellow, measured, melancholy sound.
Midnight! the outpost of advancing day'
The fiontier town and citadel ot night'
The watershed of time from which the
Of Yesterday and To-morrow take their vi ay,
One to the land of promise and of light,
One to the land of darkness and of dreams!
O Rrver of Yesterdaj, with current swift
Through chasms descending, and soon lost
I do not care to follow in thy flight,
0 River of To-mwi row I uolift
Mine e\es, and thee I follow, as the night
^V\ anes into moining. and the dawning light
1 follow, follow, where thy waters run
Through unfiequentod, unfamiliar fields,
Flagrant-with floweis and musical with
Still follow, follow sure to meet the sun,
And confident, that what the futme jields
ill be the light, unless myself be wrong.
Yet not in lain, O River of Yesterday,
Through chasms of daikness to the deep
I heard thee sobbing ir. the rain, and blend
called to thee, and yet thou wouldst not
But tuibulent, and with thyself contending,
And toi rent-like thy force on pebbles spend
Thou wouldst not listen to a poet's lay,
Thoughts, like a loud and sudden rush of
Regrets and recollections of things past,
With hints and prophecies of things to be,
And inspirations, which, could they be things
And staj lth us, and we could hold them
Were our good ang*els,these I owe to thee.
And thou, O River of To-morrow, flowing
Between thy nanow adamantine walls,
But beautiful and white with waterfalls,
And wreaths of mist, like hands the path
I hear the trumpets of the morning blowing,
I hear thy mighty voice, that caks and calls
And 6ee, as Ossian saw in Morven's halls,
Mj stenous phantoms, coming, beckoning
It is the mastery of the unknown
That fascinates us we aie children still,
Wa\ward and wistful, with one hand we
To the familiar things we call our own,
And with the other, resolute of will,
Grope the dark for what the day will
Having occasion recently to need the
services of a dentist we were interested
to note the improvements made in the
various small tools employed in this use
ful art The little burring engine for ex
ample, though not altogether agreeahle
while on duty, perfoims its work of cut
ting out the delayed places in a most
speedy and sasisfactory manner. Held in
the hand of thj dentist and operated by
a treadle it is far superior and less liable
to inflict injury upon the sufferer than
the shaip pointed tools commonly used
for that puipose.
The hand spring plugger, and. the
plugger operated by pneumatic force,
aie also effective instuments, used in the
process of putting in the gold filling.
The blow thus delivered is steady and
direct, and, as in the case of the burring
machine, there is less liability to acci
dent by slipping off. The introduction
some years since of Watt's sponge gold,
to take the place of foil, has also greatly
simplified the operation of filling teeth,
but a substitute is needed for the spong
gold, in the shape ot a cement, in appear
anc and of equal hardness to the natural
tooth, with power to resist the destroy
ing action ot the saliva. Many attempts
have been mad to produce a cement of
this kind. But thus far without success.
Of course whoever attempts to make
such an article must first acquire a knowl
edge of the chemistry of the saliva, and
of its influence upon the materials to be
acted upon, but whoever makes the dis
covery of an enduring tooth cement
would doubtless reap a handsome reward
for his ingenuity.
The dental art has reached a degree of
perfection to justify the statement, that
with proper care of the teeth by a skillful
dentist it seldom becomes necessary to
have one taken out. It is said, however,
that some dentists extract decayed teeth,
filling up the holes, and reinserting them
in the jaw with perfect success. We
have been told that a well known corn
and bunion doctor in this city, finding
the service of a dentist to be needful,
and being too busy to leave corns and
bunions, had a tooth taken out, it was
then filled and reset in its original posi
Lime is a good manure for clayey soils
and plaster for sandy ones, because the
former retains and the latter attracts
American Kxblbits at Paris.
PARIS, Wedensday, 1.1878.
The display of scales by Fairbanks & Co.,
New York, is very grand, and creditable to the
-exhibitors, showing the advancement made
by them over those of anv other American or
foreign manufacturers, and reflects great
credit on American workmanship. The ex
hibit surpasses all others in merit at the Paris'
Mason & Hamlin, who took the first medal
for their cabinet organs at the exposition in
1867, and have won the highest honors at
every world's exhibition since, are here in
competition with a fine lot of organs. Several
other American makers exhibit, but a few if
any of them will venture to compete, wft,
Investigators of natural science have de
monstrated beyond controversy, that through
out the animal kingdom the "survival of the
fittest" is the only law that vouchsafes thrift
and perpetuity. Does not the same principle
govern the commercial prosperity of man*
An inferior cannot supersede a superior artU
cle. Illustrative of this principle are the tam-
ily medicines of R. V. Pierce, M. D.,
lo, N. Y. By reason op
superior meiit they
have outrivaled all other medicines. Their
sale ia the United States alone exceeds one
million dollars ]er annum, while the amount
exported foots up to several hundred thousr
and more. No business could grow to such
gigantic proportion's and rest upon any other
basis than that of merit. It is safe to say that
no medicine or combination of medicines yet
discoveied equals or can compare with Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical discovery, for the
ure of coughs, colds, and all pulmonary
and blood affections. If the bowels be con
stipated and liver sluggish, his Pleasant Pur
gative Pellets will give prompt relief while
his Favorite Piescription will positively, per
fectly, and permanently, cure those weakness
es and "dragging-down" sensations peculiar
to^females. In the People's Common Sense

A firm New York seems unfamiliar with
the London stoiy of the man who offered to
sell real guineas at a trifle, but could fiud no
buyers. Geo. P. Rowell & Co.the "News
paper Advertising Bureau," propose for one
hundred dollars, to put a ten-lme adver
tisement in some thirty standard weeklies, and
to slide it into a thousand other weeklies fi ee.
Do they expect people to take the offer9
one acquainted with the high rates of these
standard weeklies can see that the thing is
ridiculous. Rowell & Co. must Know very
well that acceptances of the offer would be so
many items to charge to profit and loss. We
retract our insinuation about their ignorance
of that London story. They probably know
it too well, and are shrewd enough, bv taking
advantage of that human trait at which the
story hits, to make a stroke for fame as men
of startling liberality, and at the same time
run no risk of pecuniary I05.S.
Nervousness and Sleepless nights are cured

HEART REGULATOR has no equal it is not
claimed a cureall but a medicine which oe
stiaight to its work, relieves the Heart of its
burden, and enables it to produce the blood as
it should, giving life and tone to the system.

matter how slight, try the HEART REGU-
LATOR and you will say it is a blessing.
