Before the si hpler laws of aatronomv
were known tha sun was supposed to be
trundled out int o the heavens every day,
and the stars 1 nng up in the firmiment
every night by the right band of the Al
mighty. IMor; the laws of comets were
known they were thought to be missiles
hurled by an ar gry God at a wicked world.
Before tbe rea l cause of lightning was
known it was nipponed to be the work of
a good God in Ids wrath, or of evil sj)irits
in their malice.
Befure the Uws of meteorology were
known it was thought that -rains - were
caused by the Almighty or his angels open
ing "the windows of heaven" to let down
upon tbe earth "the waters that be above
tbe firmament " Before the laws govern
ing physical b ealth were known diseases
were supposed to result from the direct in
terposition of the Almighty or of Satan.
Before the law 1 governing mental health
were known in sanity was generally thought
to be diabolic aossession.
So in this ca k, to account for the diversi
ty of tongues, tbe direct intervention of
the Divine wi l was brought in. ' As this

It isn't always the mnn of the world who

world's school might have envied the readi

who came into a restaurant a few days
ago with a pretty young girl of nbout his
own degree of verdancy. Seating them
selves, both gave to the menu card that

gered lovingly and reflectively upon it, as
hers now did. "I think." she said finally,
"that I will have woodcock."
"Did you ever eat woodcock?" asked her
"No," she said, "but I just thought I
would try it."
"Did you ever see a woodcock?" he per-sist-d.
"Well, then, a woodcock is an animal as
big as a young pig, and if I were to order
one for ns two everybody would laugh. I
think we'd better stick to what we know.

"Another wonderful discovery baa
been made, and that, too by lady in
this country. Disease fastened iu
clutches upon her and for seven years she
withstood its severest tests, but her vita
organs were undermined and death
seemed imminent. For three month she
coughed incessantly and could not sleep.
She bought of us a bottle of Dr. King's
New Discovery for consumption and was
so much relieved on taking the first dose
that she slept all night, and with one
bottle has been miraculously cured. Ilcr

. The winter of 1814 is still remembered bv
some .very old people aa t hat of "tbe great
frost." Snow was so deep and remained
so long on the roads that tbe mail coaches
were prevented from running, and com
munication between the chief centers of
population was extremely difficult and in
seme cases impossible. Six years later tbe
southwest of England suffered from an
ether terrible severe snow storm. On Dart
moor the snow was several feet deep, and
numerous fatalities occurred, persons not
only being lost, bat those who went oat to
seek them also perishing iu the great drifts
The transition from long lingering
and painful sickness to robust health
marks an epoch in the life of the individ
ual. Such a remarkable event is treas
ured in memory and tbe agency whereby
tbe good health has been attained is
gratefully blessed. Hence it is that so
much is heard in praise of Electric Bit
ters. So many feel tliey owe their res
toration to health, to the use of the great
alterative and tonic. If yon are troubled
with any disease of kidneys, liver or
stomach, of long or short standing yon
will surely find relief by use of Electric
Bitters. Sold at 60c and tl per bottle
