invariably accompanied by extensive de

treatment, a purgative, exerting a pow

pans, is essentially necessary. Thero
is no cathartic for tho purpose equal to
Dr. J. Walker's Vinegar Bitters,
as they will speedily remove tho dark
colored viscid rriatter with which tho
bowels are loaded, at tho same time
stimulating the secretions of the liver,
and generally restoring the healthy
functions of the digestive organs.
Fortify the body .against disease

Cleanse the Vitiated Blood when

From some o'ercharged heart close by ;
Like a weary zephyr dying.

Yet the senti v is leplving
"All is we'll!"
From yon Light House comes a glistening,
Like a lay of hope it seems
Eager hearts to false hope listening,
Hope that only conies in dreams ;
Oh ! that hope of home returning.
Hoping on and with a burning,
Feverish tire of ceaseless vean.iog,

" Umbrellas Under Fire."
Seventy years ago, a large urn
breblla was usually kept hanging
in the hall at good houses, to keep
visitors dry as they passed to and
from their carnages. Coffee-house
keepers provided in this way for
their frequenters ; but men disdain
ed to carry such a convenience
through the streets. It was held
effeminate indeed to shrink a weN
ting. t; Take that thing away,"
said Lord Cornwallis to the servant
about to hold the house umbrella
over him. " I am not 6ugar or salt
to melt in a shower." It is hard
to imagine the guards under fire
and umbrella at the same time.
Such a thing, however, was seen

No matter how intimate you ma)
be with the friend with whom you
may have business transactions put
your agreement in writing. How
many misunderstandings from the
loose way in which business mat
ters are talked over, and when each
party puts his own construction on
the matter and it is dismissed by
each with the words, "All right; all
right." Frequently it comes out
all wrong, and becomes a question
for tho lawyers and the courts. More
than three-fourths of the litigation
of the people of the country would
be saved if people would put down
their agreements in writing and
sign their names to it. Each word
in our language has it peculiar
meaning and memory may, by a
change in a sentence convey an
entirely different idea from that in
tended. When ence reduced to
writing ideas are fixed, and expen
sive lawsuits avoided.
What Underdraining Does.
It dries the soil. It makes it
porous, and therefore mellow at the
touch of the plow. It makes the
land work easier. It warms the
ground in cool weather, and cools it
in over-hot. It is eariier in the
Spring, and- later in the Fall, in til
lable condition. It resists the
frosts to a great extent during the
Winter. It is indispensible to grow
grain successfully, and gras3 that
makes good butter and cheese. It
is the cure of malaria; makes a
country warmer; increases the
value of land. It stands the heavy
rains without harm, passing off the
Surplus LwatPr "T,fl votinIng ita
fertility. It will bear stock on it
earlier in the season, and sooner
without harm after a rain. It is a
comfort to know you have it. But
it must be done well else there is a
loss of the whole labor.
Keep out of Debt. Half the
perplexity, annoyance and trouble
that men have in this world is in
conseqence of getting into debt. It
seeni3 to be natural for some men
to buv and incur obligations with
out measure, so long as they can
avoid paying ready cash Give one
of this sort a chance to buy cn cred
it, and the question of price arid
conditiens ot payment are matters
that he cares but little about. But
what a crop of trouble springs up
from the seed of debt. How many
sleepless nights result from it !
How many gray hairs it brings,
and how often it shortens life
sometimes leading men to commit
suicide or murder. And yet how
easy a thing it is to keep clear of
this terrible monster, Every young
man should form a fixed unalterable
determination, before commencing
his active basiuess career, not to
incur one enr.y of indebtedness
under any circummstances. Never
borrow. Never buy anything
unless you have the money to pay
for it at once. Pay no attention to
splendid opportunites," "bargains,"
"rare chances," and the like.
Such affairs are only traps which
debts set to catch victims. If you
see anything that you would like to
buy, or any offer is made that you
would like to accept, look first at
your money pile, and make the
answer deoend upon that. Always
pay as you go. If you are short of
money, you should gauge your de
mands accordingly. Foster habits
