and expel disease. They purge ont the foul humors which

tone with strength to the whole system. Not only do
they cure the every-tlay complaints us every body, but
' also formidable and dangerous diseases that have baffled
the best of human “kill. While they produce powerful
effects, they arc at the .omo time, iu diminished doses, the
safest and best physic that can be employed for children.
Being sugar-coated, they are pleasant to take; and being
purely vegetable, are free from any risk of harm. Curea

! two republics acknowledge as the basis of the
i rights of neutrals at sea, and which they re
' cognize and profess as permanent and immu
j table, considering them as the Due and in

i gallon and maritime commerce and trade.
For this purpose, the President of the Uni-

: take the stipulations contained in the said ar
i tide ms a lule, whenever it shall become a
i question, to judge of the rights of neutrality.
ARTICLE IV.

Bead an Hour a Doy.-»-there was a lad
who at fourteen was apprenticed to a soap
boiler. One of hi* resolutions was to read
an hour a day, or at least at that rate, and
he bad an old silver watch left him by hi*
uncle, which he timed his reading by. Ha
staid seven years with his master, and his
master said when he was twenty one, that he
was twenty-one, that he knew as much as the
young squire did. Now let us see how much
time ho had to read in seven years, at the
rate of an hour a day. It would be twenty
five hundred and fifty five hours, which at
the rate of eight reading hours a day, would
be three hundred ami nineteen days; equal
to forty-five weeks, and equal to eleven month*;
nearly a year's reading. That time spent in
tniasuring up utu-fu! knowledge would pile
up a very lare» -n ie 1 .ni *ure it i* worth
j trying fur. Trv v you can do.
