From their operations elsewhere It Is not clear that these gentlemen are the philanthropists they represent themselves to he; and Congress should at all hazards protect our city from le charter-Jobbing concerns which have afflicted other communities In the nature of opposition gas companies. Washington has the best paved streets in the world, and has, consequently, more to protect In these matters than any other city. The damage to our asphalt streets, composition sldewalks,aewers, water pipes and trees, by the limitless excavations of a new gas company, would be a more heroic remedy than, In our opinion, is demanded by any existing evIL We know nothing of what merits the present corporation may possess, but the disadvantages of the proposed new concern are obvious enough. The existing company Is controlled by Congress, who can make any restrictions they may think advantageous to the city, and Is probably as satisfactory an organization as gas companies usually are. As Congress can do whatever It may desire with the present corporation, we cannot help deeming It an unwise proceeding to allow any destruction of our city, and especially in the Interest of foreign speculators, who care nothing for the welfare of the public, and who would eventually compel the people, In some manner or other, to pay an Increased rate for gas?as they have done elsewhere. _ Citizens.

I keep a grocery here, and can sell more of your medicine than any drug store, as 1 recommend it to all afflicted wltn Kidney Disease or Dropsy. I tell them, that, if they have life enough to swallow it, it will raise them from the dead for a fact; for it did raise me from that slumbering sleep, and. although this was over three yean ago, I have had no Kidney tro uble since. Like the woman in Scripture, I had recourse to many physicians, and grew nothing better, but ever worse. But, thankB to Hum's Remedy, I am raised as one from the dead." THE MOST SCEPTICAL CONVINCED. Thousands feel a thrill of Joy whenever they gaze upon the magical words, "Hunt's Remedy;" for it is the best Kidney and Liver medicine ever known, and it recalls to memory the blessings it has proved to them, it is a positive remedy for all Diseases of the Kidneys, Bladder, and Urinary OTgans. The proprietors' names should be written in letters of gold, for few men have done so much .for their suffering fellow-beings. One trial will convince the most sceptical, causing them to proclaim to all their friends the many virtues of this great medicine. The demand increases as it becomes known, and where it is best known the sales are the largest As Mrs. Browning says, "Great is he who uses his greatness for all. This is what the proprietors of Hunt's Remedy do. Their great medicine isfor all. -Cor. Ja30 End of the season. REDUCTION IN PRICES TO REDUCE STOCK.
