The thermometer is again becoming the
same object of interest which it was in
the boreas afflicted days of January; a
circumstance which forcibly illustrates
the popular truism that extremes meet.
When the temperature is very hot and
when it is very cold the public is accus
tomed to stand with awe and ear-muffs
or fan before the mercury and watch its
variations with a deal of delight- The
man that can discover the hottest or the
coldest thermometer is bailed with glee,
for it is a noticeable fact that the average
man likes to believe that it is hotter or
colder than it is. On a very warm day
the soda water fountain of the man whose
theremometer registers 102 3 will do a
bigger business than that of the individ
ual who owns a 96 register. An inven

lated should be a very simple thing and
there is small doubt but that there would
be a ready sale for the article.
The fascinating hammock and the glee

strument in the hands of man or maiden.
One is apt to find it loaded at any time.
Croquet, too, is dissipating. It savors of
billiards and ten pins and only needs a

A recent dispatch says: "A careful
examination of the Washington monu
ment will be made as soon as the freshet
subsides by the officers in charge. There
have been rumors that on account of the
constant wear of the waters, which still
surround its base, the foundations of the
monument have been weakened and there
are apprehensions that the damage will
prove serious. The soil upon which it
stands is exceedingly marshy, and it does
not require any great length of time for
water to penetrate. About two years ago
congress passed an act ordering the filling
up of Babcock lake, which lay at Its
base. This was done at the recommen
dation of the engineer in charge, who
gave it as his opinion that the water was
gradually working its way to the founda
tions of the monument and would in time
wadermine it It is impossible as yet on
account of the recent flood to make any
extensive examinations." If the Wash
ington monument, as indeed many of the
capital buildings, had been erected on a
olid foundation above and beyond the
reach of floodsanywhere but in a ma
rine marsh it would be all right today
and would not require the constant ex
penditure that is being made. This is

' rare la Baford Post.
There is great consternation and no
small amount of indignation expressed
among the members of Buford post, O
A.. R., just now over the receipt of a bill
of $25 from Rev. Wm. McPheeters. a
member of the post, for his services to
the post and to the public on Memorial
day, in delivering the oration at the Na
tional cemetery on the island. The post,
it will be remembered, had charge of the
exercises, and it was thought to be a
compliment to Mr. McPheeters to ask him
to deliver the oration of the occasion, not
for a moment suspecting, however, that
there would be any charges attached
thereto, but this is where the parson
"fooled 'em," for he doesn't give vent to
his eloquence for patriotism for nothing,
any more than he does for politics or any
thing. Those who have bad political
transactions with the reverend gentleman
know how high he estimated the force of
bis oratorical ability, but it was not bus
peeled that he had such a liberal idea of
the extent of his services on behalf of his
old comrades in eulogizing dead fellow
One member of the post was so en
raged at this act on the part of the par
son that he suggested if the pot would
secure from the memorial day orator an
iu-niizr-d statement of his charges he
would pay it out of his own pocket for
the Bake of having it framed and placed
among the archives of the post.

When the liver is indolent, as it must
necessarily be when it fails to secrete the
bile in sufficient quantities to meet the
requirements of digestion and evacuation,
it should be set at work with Hostetter's
Stomach Bitters. The healthful stimu
lus to activity imparted by this incom
parable alterative, speedily evinces itself
in a departure of the uncomfortable sen
sations in the right side; the nausea, fur
upon the tongue, indigestion, and aick
headache consequent upon inactivity of
the liver and the diversion of the bile
from its proper channel. Irregularity of
the bowels is always and painlessly re
formed by the corrective indicated. which
is infinitely to be preferred, both because
it is safe and more efficacious, to blue
pills, calomel and drenching' purgatives
of every class. It cures and prevents
fever and ague and rheumatism.
