Don't tell the little one, who may be Flightlr willful, "that the black man -will come out of the dark cellar and carry it off if it does notmiml." Don't create a needless fear to go with the child through ail the stages of its ex istence. Don't tell the little fire-year old boy "the school-ma'am will cut off his ears," "pull out bis teeth" "tie him lip" or any of the horrible stories that are presented to the childish im agination. Think you the little one will believe anything yon tell him af ter be becomes acquainted with the gentle teacher who has not the least idea of putting those terrible threats into execution ? Don't I ell the children they must not drink tea because it will make them black, while you continue the use of it daily. Your example is more to them than precept ; and while your face is fair as a June morning, they will scarcely credit twe oft-told tale. Either give up drinking the pleasant beverage or give the children a better reason lor its non-use. Don't tell them they must not eat sugar or sweetmeats, because it will rot their teeth. Pure sugar does not cause the teeth to decay; sugar with fruits' is nutritious and healthy, not withstanding the "old sa w" to the con trary. The case of city children is often cited as if the cause of their pale laces and slight constitutions were an over amount of sweetmeats with their diet, when the actual cause is the waut of pure air and proper exercise. Don't tell till; sick one that the med icine is not bad to take, when you can hardly keep your own stomach from turning "inside out" at the smell of it. Better by far to tell him the sim ple truth, that it in disagreeable, bat necessary for his health, and you de sire him to take it at once. Ten to one he will swallow it with half the trouble of coaxingand werry of words and love you better for. your firm de cided manner. Don't teach the children by example to tell white lies to each other and to their neighbors. Guard your lips and bridle your tongue it you desire to have the coming generation truth ful. Truthfulness is one of thefouuda tjou stones of heaven. Kemeuiber, the old, old book says, "no liar" shall enter within the gates of the beauti ful city. There is no distinction be tween white lies and those of a darker hue. The falsehood is an untruth, whether the matter be great or small. Rural New Yorker. A ROMANCE OF TWO CONTINENTS. Fifty years ago a young English offi cers named Hendricks wag traveling with his sister iu Italy, where he met,wooed,and ran off with the charm ing daughter of a rich and proud no bleman. Even as the father of Des demona disowned her, so, the Italian Count swore never again to acknowl edge his recreant daughter. Nothing disturbed thereat, she accompauied her husband to the British dominions iu North America, thence to New York, where, alter giviug birth to a laughter, she died. Hendricks, hav ing thus lost his wife, gave himself up to dissipation, but was so far mindful of his motherless infant as to marry a German woman who had taken a fan cy to the child. The girl grew to maidenhood, receiving little education for the family was poor, and when still young, was married at Vinceuces ludiava, to an Ohio river mate, named liiram Titus. They lived happily 1 1 1 o ugh until Titus died, when she re moved to Louisville, where she led, it not a dissolute, still not a virtuous iifc. Now the Count, her grandfather, has yielded up to Heaven his vi'al trust, and as sole lineal heir she has gone to Italy to claim his title and his wealth. The fortune which thus tails to her is variously estimated from $200,000 to 800,000. A LINCOLN RELIC. The Lincoln monument just inau gurated at Springfield contains a me morial hall iu which relics of Mr. Lincoln are preserved. It is finished on the inside with Illinois slate, (he rest of the structure being composed of granite and iron. The hall con tains a stone from the walls of Ser vius Tulliu3, sent by some Roman patriots to Mr. Lincoln after his sec ond election to the Presidency. On its face they placed an inscription in Latin, of which the following is a translation : "To Abraham Lincoln, President for the second time of the American Republic, citizens of Rome present this stone, from the walls of Servius Tullius, by which the memory of each of those brave asserters of libertj may be associated. Anno. 1865. This singular present was doubtless shipped to Mr. Lincoln about the time of his assassination, as it was discov ered in the While House only after his death. President Johnton author ized the Monument Association to place it among other relics of the dead statesman. WHEAT THROUGHOUT I HE COUNTRY The October returns of the Depart ment for Agriculture show that the wheat crop is equal to or greater that) last year's iu all the States except Maryland, Virginia, Kentucky, Texas Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa and Kan sas. Iu corn Delaware, South Caroli na, and Illinois it is about equal to last year's crop. Other States have increased their yield. The New Eng land States have almost reached the splendid crop of the census year ap proximating to a million bushels. Maine has increased her yield 33 per ceut. The qualitv of the crop in these States is considerably improved. The Middle States have considerably en larged and improved their yield. New York reports an increase of 16 per cent. Ot the South Atlantic Slates, Maryland falls 1 per cent, and Virgin ia 5 per cent., below last year, but their deficiency is more than made up by oiher States, Georgia showing an increase of 21 per cent. The quality is also improved. Of the Gult States Alabama reportsan increase of 23 and Mississippi of 2 per cent : Texas a de crease'of 7 per cent, in quality; Ala bama improves 29 per cent, and Miss issippi declines 9 per ceut. and Texas (i per cent. All four of the Southern inland fctates show an improvement iu quality of from 4 per cent, in Ar kansas to 17 per cent, in Tennessee. Iu qnantity.Arkansas presents an in crease of 50 per cent., Tennessee 29 percent., WestVirginja 23 per cent., Kentucky declines 5 per ceut. The crops of these States are a third great er than that of the census year, Illi nois equals the crop of last year, while Wisconsin, on account of grasshop pers, falls 35 per cent, short, which re duces the aggregate crop of this sec tion below last year. Ohio increases her yield 16 per'cent., Michigan 22 pet cent., Indiana 9 per cent. All show improved quality except Wisconsin, which declines 23 per cent. The ag gregate yield of the States west of the Mississippi is also short of last year. Missouri increased 29 per cent, aud Nebraska 1 per cent., but Minnesota declines 16 per cent, Iowa 2 per cent, and Kansas 5 per cent. Grasshoppers have been destructive to spring wheat in these States. The quality is below last year in all except Minnesota, which improved 27 per cent. On tha Pacific coast the crop is greatly in creased and is fully 50 per cent, above the census year. California increases her vield 10 per cent, and Oregon 21 percent. Oregon equals the quality of last year's crop. California im proves hers by 3 per cent. The tota crop will nearlv, if not quite, equal iUe census year. wmm m.iffji Watches Established 1847.

HUOSOVd Ayer's Hair Vigor, For restoring to Gray Hair its natural Vitality and Color. A which is at once agreeable, healthy, and effectual for f reserving the air. It soon restores faded or gray hair to its original color, ttrith the gloss and freshness of youth. Thin hair is thickened, falling hair checked, and baldness often, though not always, cured by its use. Nothing can restore the hair where the follicles are de stroyed, or the glands atrophied and decayed; but such as remain can be saved by this application, and stimu lated into activity, so that a new growth of hair is produced. Instead of fouling the hair with a pasty sedi ment, it will keep it clean and vigorous. Its occasional use will prevent the hair from turning gray or falling off, and consequently prevent baldness. The restoration of vitality it gives to the scalp arrests and prevents the forma tion of dandruff, which is often so un cleanly and offensive. Free from those deleterious substances which make ; some preparations dangerous and inju- j rious to the hair, the Vigor can only i benefit but not harm it. If wanted i merely for a HAIR DRESSING, ' nothing else can' be found so desirable. ! Containing neither oil nor dye, it does ' not sou white cambric, and yet lasts long on the hair, giving it a rich, glossy lustre, and a grateful perfume. Prepared by Or. J. C. Ayer & Co., Practical and Analytical Chemista, LOWELL, MASS. Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, Vor Diseases of the Throat and livings, such as Coughs, Colds, Whooping Cough, Bronchitis, Asthma, and Consumption. Amonz the great discoveries of modem science, few are of more real value to mankind than this ef fectual remedy for all diseases of the Throat and Lungs. A vast trial ot its virtues, throughout this and other countries, has shown that it does surely and effectually control them. The testimony of our best citi zens, of all classes, establishes the "fact, that Cherry Pectoral will and does relieve and core the afflicting disorders of the Throat and Lungs beyond any other medicine. The most dangerous affections of the Pulmonary Organs yield to its power; and cases of Consumption, cored by this preparation, are publicly known, so remarkable as hardly to be believed, were they not proven beyond dispute. As a remedy, it is adequate, on which the pnblic may rely for full protection. By curing Coughs, the forerunners of more serious disease, it saves un numbered lives, and an amount of suffering not to be computed. It challenges trial, and con vinces the most sceptical. Every family should keep it on band as a protection against the early and unperceiyed attack of Pulmonary Affec tions, which are easily met at first, but which become incurable, and too often fatal, if neg lected. Tender lungs need this defence; and it is unwise to be without it. As a safeguard to children, amid the distressing diseases which beset the Throat and Chest of childhood, Cherrt Pectoral is invaluable ; for, by its timely use, multitudes are rescued from premature graves, and saved to the love and affection centred on them. It acts speedily and surely against ordi nary colds, securing sound and health-restoring sleep. No one will suffer troublesome Intlu. ana painitu uroncaius, wueu uiey md how easily thev can be cured. Originally the product of long, laborious, and successful chemical investigation, no cost or toil is spared in making every bottle in the utmost possible perfection. It may be confidently relied upon as possessing all the virtues it has ever exhibited, and capable of producing cures as memorable as the greatest it has ever effected. PREPARED bv Dr. J. C.

While this is true iu the purchase of articles generally, it is particularly so in the purchase of a PIANO. People can exercise their judg ment, and form a pretty correct estimate ol every other article that goes into a household, but when it comes to bdying a piano, the great mass of the people are entirely Incapable of ulging, aud cannot tell whether an instrument is worth S00 or BOO dollars, ' This accounts for the large number of cheap and worthless In struments annually sold as 'first class pianos,' They look v ry well ; seem to have a pretty Rood tone ; bat not being ceU and honestly made, iy tkiiled tcorkwen, but " made to tell," in a few years they utterly fail in all that constitutes a B ally good instkcmknt, and persons buying such, Bud iheir money gone aud a worthless In strument on their hands. Tlicic are a few manufacturers who have a National reputation, who have had long experi ence and ample facilities in manufacturing. and whoso Instruments have stood the test of time and hard service, In buying one of these you RUN no risk. Their Irstruuicuts cannot be bought as cheap as many new concerns ad vertise them ; but persons buying them are sure of getting tbe worth of their mosey, and a Piano that will be good for 15 or 20 years, with proper usage. There are three or lour loading points of ex cellence that everyone is desirous of having in a Piano, when they buy, viz: Durability, Tone, Touch and Finish. The " II AZ ELTON BKOTHEUS," of New Vork, are one ol the oldest manufacturer in the United State, and their Instruments, forCKEAT durability, uniform excellence, deliuauy, singing quality, and powell of tone, elastic touch anil beauty of finish, arc unsurpassed by any iu the world. They combine in an emi nentdegrcc. all that goes to make a really fibst class instrument. 1 cau conlidently recom mend the -IIazelton" to all who think of buy ing, as a Piano that will give entire eatieaetion. They are fully warranted for live years. A number of our leading citizens have for some time had in use in their families these excellent instruments, and I will take pleasure in relcring to them any persons who may wish to sec the Pianos or get the opinions of those using them. I shall be happy to order rroin the manufac turers, any of these Instruments for persons wanting, and can assure them that they will get JUST WHAT THEY WANT, and at A LESS PRICE than they can buy a similar Instrument in Cleveland or elsewhere.

JJTjr-J PRINTING aapeclaliyatthli Hs Don't go to law unless you have nothing to loose ; lawyers' houses are built ou loots heads. I It is aid President Grant salary 1 and perquisites amount to the nice little sum of $117,660. "Another hole in them pants !'; said a fond mother to her young hope ful. "What a drefful on-kneesy fel low you are!" A Philadelphia lawyer estimates that $1,550,000 is the amount so far in volved in the libel suits growing out of the interminable Boecher-Tilton scandal. The London Daily News discusses the third term, and holds that ''Gen eral Grant may probably be as good a candidate as any other man of third rate ability." A couple of gentlemen strolling alonga turnpike, came to a toll-bridge, and one ot them said, ''I wonder when that bridge was erected, and who built it ?" "I don't know," re sponded the other, "but let's go over aud we shall be tolled." The name of the Sheriff of White ; County, 111., is Hail Storms. His ! father was an eccentric gentleman, aud he had three song, whom he nam ed respectively Hail Storms, Rain Storms and Snow Storms. In Paris a club hat been formed for the promotion of temperance on a novel plan. Tne members propose to substitute milk for all kinds ot stimu lating beverages, drinking large quan tities of it in public and private. 'What makes your cows so cross ?" asked an old lady of her milk-man the other day. "Cross, madam ! My cows are not cross ; they are the gentlest critters you ever saw." "It is very strange ibeu that Ihe milk is always sour!" sharply replied the old lady. Come aud play and dance, my dear, vnd choose one of these pretty girls for your wite, said the lady ot the house to a little boy of seven years, who kept by himself at a juvenile par ty. "No," said the young cynic, "no wife for me. Do you think I want to be worried out of my life like poor papa?" An illiterate person, in speaking of a certain man's curiosity, repeatedly prouounced.lhe word curosity, where at a gentleman remarked to another, "How horribly that man murders the English language !" ' Oh, no," was the reply, "he does not murder it ; he only knocks an i out." In the reign of the late King of Si ain, the currency of the reulm consist ed of lead and zinc coins. Copper coins were subsequently introduced, but they were so easy of imitation that counterfeits were soon in geueral circulation. Cowries were then used, and the copper coinage was with drawn. The heads of gambling hous esprivileged institutions in Siam put in circulation a crockery currency, which they recall at pleasure. Thia crockery currency, however, is now to be recalled by the Government, and paper notes of small denominations are to be generally used unlil a proper coinage can be decided upon. A TATTOOED MAN. A strange exhibition is about to be made in Paris, in the persoh of a man tattooed all over his body. He is a Greek by birth. At present aged forty-seven, he was, when young, made a prisoner by a horde of Mauchoux Tartars, who amused themselves by tattooing every part of his body in va rious colon. The torture he endured from the continual puncture of so many needles was indescribable. He olten prayed for death, but. he surviv ed the trial and he is now about to show the effect produced. A new cure for consumption has been discovered by a Russian physi cian, Dr. PortuikofT, ol Samars, on the Volga. Having observed that con sumption and its cognate disorders are unknown among the Tartar tribes who habitually drink koumis, or fermented mares' milk, both as a beverage and as a portion of their daily food, it oc curred to him that koumis might pos sess medical properties. He accord ingly started a koumis establishment at Samara, and tried the marcs' milk with consumptive patients, with high ly beneficial resnlts, The less men think the more they talk. Working and thinking should go together. A man who has no mind will not change it. . A foolish friend is more trouble some than a wise enemy. As charity covers, so modesty pre vents a multitude of sins. Don't insult a poor man. His mus cle may be well developed. None talk so loudly of benevolence as those who subsist on it. "He who would by his biz rise, must either bust or advertise." Don't fret. Tbe world will move on as usual after you are gone. If you wish to keep your silk um brella, lend only your cotton one. No one cau sincerely try to help an other without helping himself. Be punctual and methodical iu busi ness, and never procrastinate. It is only great souls that know how much glory there is in doing good. No dust affects the eye like gold dust, aud no glasses like braudy-glass-es.
