Once upon a time, a lon»
giant* were as p| en tr i n l«f an d as fle»« W
torn cat, t&ere lived 6n the border, of *
ty Armagh, one Barne MTn'™.? '^ C ? un
fully came under tha atov«^™l * • J' aw *
seven feet high and made in S l' 011,
prowess was welt known La TJ 11 ™;
for many miles round' ° W u®
that grieved Barney affw OBa ,h ', n S
that he could get no one ta' stand
in h.s own country. Now *port sp „ke of a
certain g.aot in Scotland *rho was laboring
under the like grief, and for precisely the «»n£
cause; therefore Barney,
ft,ends on the subject, sent a challenge to the
Scotch giant to "come over to Ireland and get
the conceit taken out of hitiself." After The
due tune the_ bearer of the challenge returned
with word that it had been accepted, and fur
ther stated that he was adviaed to inform Bar
ney, that he had better maka his will, get hiß
coffin made, &c., as he, that lie was about to
encounter, never left his work half done.
"Did you see him 1" asked Barney.
,he me ssenger.
p-l l B he ~ke?' ' * nterr( Mt«ted the giant.
"Faith, Barney, ay.c he's (ike any thing at
all but a mortal being." ♦
"How big is he ?" said Barney, looking any
thing but pleased at the description of hw n
' How big is he, did you say? Faith, he's
ns b'g a* the ould tower furnint the door, an'a
head an' shoulders like Father M'Gurney's
bull, an' by all accounts he'll ait you alive."
Barney began to feel rather uncomfortable
at the prospect before him, and straightway
went to consult his wife, as to what was to be
done in the event of his rival proving to be
such as his messenger had represented. While
they were thus engaged, one of the children
came running in, and exclaimed :
"Daddy, come to the door and see the great
big man that's coming down the hill!"
Barney peeped through the chinks of the
door, und to his great terror, aaw the mon
A look was enough to satisfy him that his
messenger had not exaggerated his account
of him, and turning to his wife he said,' She
la, jewel, I'm ett alive for sartin! Here comes
the Scotch baist to drum your poor Barney."
When Shela heard the approach of the com
ing foe, and her lord's utter inability to wag*
war with one to far superior in strength and
size, she concluded that it was only by some
piece of woman's wit that her husband could
escape from the affair without difhonor, and
accordingly she gently lifted the child out of
the cradle, and depositing it on the bed of the
inner room, made the father get in his place,
and covering him with a quilt, geniiy seated
herself and resumed her work. After a few
moments, in walks the cause of all the distur
bance, and demanded an interview with the
giant. Shela, after motioning with her hand
for him to keep quiet, walked gently across
the floor to where he stood, and in an under
tone told him Barney had gone out in the
woods. The giant informed her thapfae intend
ed waiting his return. "Very well," said Silv
ia, "only dou't make a word of noise for the
life that is in you; for there's uotljing makes
him more furious than to hear the: child cry
ing when he comes home."
By this time the giant had seated Jimself on
a bench and was quietly surveying the apart
ment; but when his eyes rested on the cradle,
with a look of unuttering astonishment, he
asked what was in it? "lnit!"—cHpd Shela,
"don't you see that it is the child that's iu it;
an' Heaven help you if you wake him; the
cray thur didn't get a wink of sleep laat night
with the two back teeth he's cutting." The
giant, with a look of terror and astonishment,
asked what size the father wab ? "Faith an' I
can't tell you, for I never measured him, but
that ga?son (pointing to the cradle) when the
father is angry, runs and hides himself.in one
of his boot''." "Laird save us!" exclaimed
the giant; "I winna mind waiting tbe noo las
see, I maun be gaun, gude morning; and so
saying he took to his heels and never thought
himself safe until he got among the bills of
his own country.

LIVER PILLS — Prcpvr ed from the Mate
obtained at the Rockbridge (Va.) Alum Spring*.—
These Pills are confidently recommended as
having all the virtues of the water, and in
many eases they are preferable. In derange
ment of the stomach and bowels, or want of
action in'the liver, their immediate effect upon the
liver and kidneys especially, entitle them to public
consideration. If the patient be bilious they search
•ut the bile and expel it from the system—unlike
all other Pill 3, they may be taken with impunity,
(irrespective of weather,) as there ia nothing in
them calculated to injure say one- In cutaneous
diseases and eruptions of the skin, of whatever
sort, they are a sure remedy, and particularly effica
cious in diseases such aa females are subject to,
dropsies, flatnlancy. 4c., &c. These Pills may just
ly be styled an universal remedy, as they are de
cidedly the best in use for the cure of all diseases
resulting from irregular habits. Aft-*r their usa
has been con'inued tor a time, the whole systerr
b£ comes invigorated, and the patient is restored to
perfect health. They are carefully prepared and
put up in vials of 100 at $1 each. A liberal discount
will be made to Druggists.
