BENEFITS OF ADVERTISING No man is more competent to give an opinion on the benefits of advertising than P. T. Barnum. In his autobiogra phy, he gives rules for success in busi ness, and among them, as of primary im portance, he places advertising?not mere occasional advertising, but advertising upon a liberal and systematic scale. He says: il Advertise your business. Do not hide your light under a bushel. What ever your occupation or calling may be if it needs support from the public, <*/ vertise^ it thcroughly and efficiently. I freely confess that what success I have had in my life may fairly be attributed more to the public press than to nearly sill other causes combined. There inav possibly be occupations that do not re quise advertising, but I cannot well con ceive what they are. Men in business will sometimes tell you that they hive tried advertising, and that it did no't pay. This is only when advertising is done sparingly and grudgingly. Homeopathic doses of advertising will not pay, per haps?it is like half a potion of physic making the patient sick, but effecting nothing. Administer liberally, and the cure will be sure and permanent. Some say 4 they cannot afford to advertise they mistake?they cannot afford not to advertise. In this country, where every body reads the newspapers, the man must have a thick skull who does not sec tiiat these arc the cheapest and best me diums through which he can speak to the public, where he is to find his customers. Put on the appcarancc of business, and generally the reality will follow. The farmer plants his seed, and while he is sleeping his corn and potatoes are grow ing. So with advertising. While you are sleeping, or eating, or conversing with one set of customers, your adver tisement is being read by hundreds and thousands of persons who never saw you or heard of your business, and never would had it not been lor your advertise ment appearing in the newspapers." ? ? ? COUGHING IN CONSUMPTION A gentleman called upon us recently, who actually escaprd from the fangs of consumption some yeaix ago: and we are induced to present the circumstances: "^ou speak of coughing continuallv. Let me suggest to you the query, whether this is not unnecessary and injurious. 1 have long been satislied from experience and observation, that much of the cough ing which precedes and attends consump tion is voluntary. Several years ago, I boarded with a man who was in the in cipient s'.ages of consumption. I slept in a chamber over his bed-room, and was obliged to hear him cough continually and distressingly. I endured the annoy ance night after night till it led me to re flect whether something could not be dor.e to stop it. 1 watched the sound which the mass made, and observed that he evidently made a voluntary effort to cough. After this, I made several exper i mentis on myself, and found that I could prevent mj self from coughing, sneezing, gaping, &c., in case of the strongest pro pensity to the.e acts by a strenuous ef fort of the will. Then I rcllectcd that coughing must be irritating and injurious to the delicate organs that are concerned in it, especially when they are in a dis eased state. What can be worse for ul cerated bronchia, or lungs, than the vio lent wrenching of a cough ? It must be' worse than speaking. A sore on any part of the body, if it is constantly kept open by violent usage or made raw again by a contusion just when it is healing, (and of course begins to itch) will grow worse, and end in death. Certainly, then, a sore on the lungs may be expected to ter minate fatally, if it is constantly irri tated, and never suffered to heal; and this, it seems to me, is just what cough ing does for it. On the strength of such considerations as these, I made bold to ask the man if he could not stop cough ing. He answered no. I told him what I thought of it as above. He agreed to make a trial; and, on doing so, he found to his surprise that he could suppress his cough almost entirely. The power of the will over it increased as he exercised it, and in a few days he was mostly rid of the disposition to cough. His health, at the same time, evideutly improved, and when I last saw him, he was in strong hopes of getting out of death's hands." This occurred eighteen years ago, and the man comes round now, an active business man, averring that h? has not had a sick day since.?Provimial fVes ley an. California Cattle Market.? The Sacramento Union estimates that the present available stock of beef cattle in California is about 285,000 head, and that 75,000 head have arrived during the year from the States, making a total of 200,000 head. The Union then adds : Assuming the population of California to be 300,000 persons, this would give the usually assumed rate of one head of beef stock to each individual or the bare sufficiency for the wants of the country for twelve months to come. Tt is true that statistics show that the natural in crease in particular sections is large. In San Bernarda last year it was, over and above sales, 21,000 ; in Santa Barbara 7,000, and in Monterey 3,000 ; but this rate of increase does not apply to the entire State, and must be greatlv dimin ished under an increased proportionate requirement for slaughter. All things considered, therefore, the conclusion canuot well be avoided, that the price of cattle must appreciate as the year advances. 44 Mr. Brown, I owe you a grudge, remember that. " 441 shall not be fright 1 ened, then, for 1 never knew you to pay anything that you owed." | THE WEEKLY STAR. t TM? ai miMl r?nj ?< Tfrin Iiiimi ?nit If i pwi Tarioty iflaNnrtf will Iw (bad 1? anf otbar?if paMMiod ?? mm 8il|lt COjlJl MMW ? . kxXH 1 ?

Credit is 4 the tempter in a new shape.* lluy dry goods on trust, and you will purchase a thousand articles that cash would never have dreamed of. A dollar in the hand looks larger than ten doll are seen through the perspective of a sixty days due bill. Cash is practi cal. while credit takes horribly to taste and romance. Let cash buy a dinner, and you will have a beef steak Hanked with onions. Send credit to market, and he will return with eight pairs of woodcock and a peck of mushrooms. Credit believes in double-breasted pins and champagne suppers. Cash is more easily satisfied. Give him three meals a day, and he don't care much if two ot them are made up of roasted potatoes and a little dirty salt. If you want double chins and contentment, do busi ness with cash. A special edict with a vermillion tail." 117'The Rev. James II. Hartzell, of Quincy, 111., has lately been supplied with an artificial jawbone for a natural one. It appears that the reverend gen tleman was lor a long time afflicted with a bony tumor, and about ten years ago underwent an operation, when it was found necessary to extirpate the entire lower jawbone, severing it on both sides as far back as within half an inch of the argle of the lower maxillary. Articula tion was thus destroyed, and also the power to masticate, while the appear ance of his facc was unnatural and repul sive. Four years afterwards he procured a gold plate, which being furnished with teeth, and tilling the cavity left by the removal of the bone, restored to the pa tient the power both to speak distinctly and masticate certain kinds of food. Lately, however, the plate became very defective, and a few days ago Dr. Forbes, of St. Louis, inserted in its stead an ar tificial jawbone, which, it is stated, gives the patie nt's mouth and chin such a nat ural appearance that no one would detect it without accurate examination. His articulation, also, is distinct. Pacific Railkoap.?Gov Tease, of Texas, has issued his proclamation offer ing the contract " to construct the Mis sissippi anu Pacific Railroad." The proclamation recites that the contract entered into between the Governor and Messrs. Walker, King, and others, for the construction of the road has become mill and void, by the failure of the con tractors to make the deposit of $300,000 in gold and silver, or evidences of debt of the State of Texas, or other good par stocks, as they were required to do by the terms of the act and their contract. It further recites the authority given to the Governor, in case of such a failure, to enter into another contract with anv other company or individuals for the construction of the road. It then gives notice that proj>osals (or that purpose, in accordance with the provisions of the act of the Legislature, will be received at the office of the Secretary of State, until the first of May next. New Coppbk C'otN*.?The new cent picces will be issued from the Mint in the course of ? few <lavs. Thev are consid ?? tf erably smaller than the old cent pieces, and form a really beautiful and attrac tive copper coin. On one side is the head of Liberty, and the thirteen stars being omitted, the surface is plain an*I polished. The reverse is the same in de sign as the old cent, but brighter and much more finished. There is a certain amount of alloy mixed with the copper, and the perfection of the die gives to the coin a finish and elegance that has never heretofore been attained in our copper coinage. The new coin will be univer sally welcomed as a needed and credit able improvement.?Pennsylvanian. Beep asp Pork Pickle.?Somebody will thank us for the following recipe to make a first rate pickle for beef or pork : Mix 1 gallon of water, 14 lbs. of salt, it lb. of sugar, i ounce of saltpetre; boil, and skim, and cool, before pouring upon the meat, which shoi^d be packed close and covered with the pickle. Before packing in casks the meat should be slightly sprinkled with salt petre and fine salt, left a day or two to drain. Pork, intended for smoking, will cure first-rate dry-salted with six pounds and two ounces of saltpetre to tne one hundred pounds of pork rr There is a row in the German Lutheran church, in Newark, N. J. The minister, who was elected for fifteen years, has turned Roman Catholic, and in attempting to introduce the forms and church ceremonies peculiar to that faith, has roused the ire and opposition of his congregation. Tha minister met this opposition by locking the church door against the congregation. The latter have applied, through the trustees, 1?? the court, to open the doors, and allow them the use of the church. There ha* been no decision in tke case, but from the feeling evinced there is danger of vio lence. A Clergyman Sued por Libel.?A man named Sherman, of Pawtucket. Mass., has commenced an action for libel against Rev. V.
