These feelirgs which so sadden us, frequently arise from annoyances or trouble, from obstructed ierspiratton, t Irom eating and drinking what is unlit for us, thus disordering the liver and stom ach. These orvsnniut 1 regulated If you wish to he well. The fills, if taken according to tha printed instructions, will quickly restore a healthy action to both liver and stomach, whence lollow, as a uaiural cunseuueuce, a giaal appetite and a clear head. In the East and West indies scarcely any other medicine is ever used lor these disor ders. Il9r te hs HlrSBf. Never let the bowels be confined or unduly act e 1 upon. It may apiear singular that Holloway's Fills should be recommended lor a run upon the bowels, many jieraons supposing that they would increase relaxation. This is a great mistake, how ever : f,r these 1'ills will immediately correct the liver and stop every kind of bowel complaint. In warm climates tliousaudsof lives have been saved by the use ol' this medicine, which in all cases tcives bme and vigor to the whole organic system, however deranged. health and strength loliowiug as a matterol curse. The appetite, too, Is Won deriully increased by the ase of those Pills, com bined in Hie ne ol solid in prelerenee to ttaid diet.

Nothing will stop the relaxa tion ol t be bowels so quk-kly as this line correcting meuicine. Disorders of the Kldaeya.

No modicine will so effectually Imnrove the bine f the stomach as these Pills: they remove ail acidity, ooearined either by intemperance or Im proper diet. They reach the liver and reduce it to a healthy action ; they are wonderfully efficacious in cases of spasm in laet they never latl in curing an uisoniers oi tne stomacu. CSOIBS TO SCHOOL.

It looked a promising beginning, certainly, to tbe parties wbo telt an interest in tbe affair. "Old, and ugly, and unmannerly," was tne verdict, given decidedly, by iinoaa to ber aunt and cousin Maud who a little curiously awaited ber opinion, bbe was taking down ber hair for tbe night, and stood io Maud's room before tbe glass, as she spoke ; and to see her fling the great, heavy braids Mack, one would think tbey bad in some way conspired to ward destroying her illusion of the ivoigDi Launceiot.

And with tbese words Rboda flit ted through tbe door leading to ber room, witb an affected shudder tbat would have done justice to a first-class actress. v cat on eartn does she mean. mamma, aod what shall we do about it" She must not be rude to Rob's friend !" cried Maud "Let ber go ; it is only another of ber treaks," replied Mrs. Sherwood, sbruggiog ber sboulders. Kboda Brent bad some very pe culiar traits. Her aunt said she was all oddities, and ' very like tbe Brents," by which, of course, she meant she was not a bit like ber mother's people, or her. Rboda was Mr. Sherwood's ward, and Mrs. Sber wood's niece, and as ber aunt was desirous of seeing ber well married and off her lands, now tbat she was well educated and out of school, bbe maneuvered skillfully to get Phil Farnbam, down to tbe beach tbat summer, in order to throw tbe two to gether. Tbe 6rst move in her little game, however, promises anything but a victorious close. Rboda bad been a trial to her annt ever since sbe bad bad ber in ber charge. Maud, now, was bo totally different Ste did what was expected of ber, and bad therefore very prop erly fallen in love at once with the man ber mother bad selected, and now, duly engaged, was only await- ng the coming autumn in which to marry aod take ber tour abroad, ac cording to the usual manner f girls io her set. Rhoda, oo tbe contrary, did nothing any one expected of ber. Sbe bad refused, point blank, two plendid offers, bo'b of which ber unt approved aod u-ged and as matters looked now, ehe wasio a fair way to avert, at least, a third t Mrs. Sherirood consulted ber son on the matter not long after, and the two concluded tbey would try new tactics. "Sbe is just like all tbe Efc-eots con trary and willful," said Mrs. Sher wood, with a sigh. " ery well, mother we eaa be the same. Now 1 propose a new method. If you are dterained to marry Rboda cS to aosaeaody, Poll Farnbam u juat the fellow only he does'ot admire breueettes, yon see : but yoa have talked too much about rbii to ber in bis favor, I mean. try tbe rule of contraries. . Instead of praising him, talk bim down. Make er fall in love out of sheer contrarie- Arouse ber pique, enlist her ympathy, and she will be dead in love witb tbe object before the sum mer is over. He isn't far behind ber in obstinacy, either but you manage her, and leave bim to me." ' There was very little said about Mr. Farnbam to Rboda after that, ed again, but iD audibly. "Tbat little cousin of yours has a fine pair of eyes, Bob," yawned Phil Farnbam lazily from tbe depths of his hammock o.nt on the lawn, where he and Rob were taking siesta that afternoon. . . l "Yes, but yoi need'nt expect to receive an admiring glance from tbem, Phil ; sbe will never take tbe trouble to make,' herself agreeable ta a man wbo wears, tbem. Sbe calls you 'Dundreary ;' and Rob laughed merrily to himself. Tbe hammock swung to and fro so rapidly now ''that it threatened to overthrow its oe'eopant, and the vol ume of smoke tbat issued therefrom looked very mnch as though there might be a raglbg'are within its depths somewhere. "I eay, Rob, let's look in at tbe hop to-oigbt, said tbe voice in tbe ham mock, after a long silence. "I believe I'd like a waltz or two." Certainly I'm willing but I did'nt think there was any one bere yoa would care to waltz witb. Ob, I recollect now ; Miss Merton arrived to-day, and will make her debnt in our rooms this evening, now wild you were over her blonde beauty last winter. Uni ! Yes, very fair and stately. Well, I'll meet you there to-night we'll make our debut, too, in full dress 'red whiskers' and all," be add ed, sot to voce. Rboda was radiant tbat evening. Sbe lighted up well, and in a won derful buff and scarlet combination of silk, lace and flowers, the pretty, lit tle, lithe, dark figure swayed in tbe waltz and whirled in tbe galop like some bright tropical bird. Sbe danc ed divinely, aid loved tbe waltz witb a girlish fervor. 1 berefore sbe did not refuse Mr. Farnbam "tbe pleas ure" when be came toward ber early in tbe evening and begged tbe honor of ber band. Sbe discovered at glance that he waltzed like a "god, and, as she often declared, sbe "would dance with a chimney sweep if be could glido with her step." Sbe did not refuse him once after. Somehow, it must have been for the same reason, of coarse. I'bil rarnbam waltzed oftener with ber than with any other lady in tbe room, aod in spite of bis predeliction for blondes, brunettes appeared in tbe ascendant that evening, and tbe fair debutante, Miss Merton, paled and languished with jealousy as she no ticed tbe attention nay, devotion bat "little, dark Miss Brent" was re ceiving from ber preux chevalier of last winter. "I never thought Phil Farnbam anything of a flirt before,', said Mrs. Sherwood, tbe next morning, as tbe girls sat in her room, talking over the bop ; "bat 1 must confess he disap pointed me. He is'nt tbe kind of a man I took him to be Now last winter he was devotion itself to Mil lie Merton and last night be scarce- noticed ner. mere was no rea son for bis marked non-attention either for I could see that she was cha grined at his neglect. Somehow I don't like Phil as well as I used to. He is changed," and Mrs. Sherwood shook her head and sighed. Perhaps it is bis taste only tbat has changed, and bo prefers brunettes to blondes now," answered Rhoda, smiling to herself slyly, as sbe recall ed PwoVs words, and contrasted tbem itb Phil's maimer tbe night be fore. No, not tbat altogether. I know he don't admire dark women. 1 mean the whole character seems to have changed. He is reserved not as agreeable or as pleasant as he used to be critical and satirical ; and Rob says be is growing ioto a sort ofjwoman hater declares be will Bever marry, because be can nev "Oh, you'd never suit one another, that's all. But I need'nt bother my self. He doesn't admire squaws, and you bate red whiskers; so there isn't tbe least danger of jour fancy ing one another." "Well, Misb Merton is here. She's 'a pale face,' I'm sure. Can't you persuade Mr. Far n ham to stay through her, pray ?" "No ; he's tired ot the beach, and 'everybody bere,' be says. So 1 sup pose be will go." But Mr. Farnbam did stay to the masquerade, notwithstanding it was postponed a week later than at lirst designed, and much beyond bis pro posed time of departure. In that lime, too, he paid such marked at tention to little dark Miss Brent, that large, pale Miss Merton was shocked at the perversity of men's tastes, and everybody quite astonished at the! turn affairs bad taken. Everybody, at least, but Rob Sberwojd aud bis mother. The ball was a success. Phil Farnham looked really very well in bis costume, which be copied aa ac curately after Sothern's as he could ; and witb bis "blonde-brown" whis kers, quite tbe cut, and a few altera tions in bis expression, with paint and pencil, be made a very presentable Dundreary." Ibe usual stereotyp ed number of flower-girls, queens. knights and peasants, crowded tbe floor ; but the prettiest dancer in the room was one little Indian, ".Miujie bana" sbe called berselt. I be cos turae was pretty and unique. Decked off with a profusion of oright beads and feathers, gaily ornamented moc casin slippers, and the long, beavy plaits of black bair hanging lar below tbe owner s waist, altogether it was charming, if not an entirely accurate study of an Indian girl ; - . v '! think I recognize "these, 'tweet Minnebaba" whispered "Dundreary," taking op one ot tbe long braids as he spoke, and drawing the little brown band through bis arm for a promenade. "Do not be too sure," returned tbe maiden in a low tone. "As you pale faces are wont to call all dark maid- eus 'squaws,' I should think it might be a diflieuli. matter to pick out one individually in this assembly." "If this one little Indian were less agreeable and charming in her man ner toward me, 1 might individual ize still closer, perhaps, and whisper ber true name, only tbe ladv whose eyes shine behind tbat mask bates 'red wbislers,' and would never trouble herself to talk to a stupid Dundreary !" "Did Robert Sherwood tell you tbat?" Tbe mask was torn off now, and stepping out of the crowded room onto tbe wide piazza, Rboda Brent's flashing eyes looked up into Philip Farnbam's face, demanding an answ er. "Confidence for confidence. Did Robert Sherwood tell you I called all dark women 'squaws'?" Then tbey both laughed in each other's eyes, and the moon shore down brightly upon tbem, the sea softly murmured to tbem, and the summer night stars twinkled merrily over their heads. '1 be "affair" was all settled quite amicably between them there ; aod when, an hour later. Rob Sherwood stepped out on to the piazzi in quest of bis cousin aod bis friend, aud be held, in tbe shadowy moonlight, Minnebaba s dark tresses half bid be hind Lord Dundreary's red whiskers, be came up to tbem with a quizzical smile upon bis lips and whistled bar of tbe "Ten Little Indians." "Kobert Sherwood, your cousin Rhoda Brent bas promised to be my wife. In spite of the pains vou seem to have taken to prevent our liking one another you see we do, and I hope we have your good wishes." "Ab!" cried Robert, starting back in mock surprise, and recklessly quo ting in a melo-dramatic tone : Brim; not to thy lodire a st ran ire squaw 1 1 1- rotu tlie land ol tbe IJacotus, I bere are ieuds.

But as it would not be taken by the merchants in Europe for the goods ordered from them, a metalic currency was soon demanded. In K).i2, therefore, the Central Court of Massachusettes issued at Boston some silver pieces of tbe value of twelve and of sii English pennies each. These coins are merely round, flat pieces of silver, witb "N. E." (New England) on one side, and the the other, wasted no money on engraving, not even an nouncing the year in which the coins were iesued. This coinage was, however, so dis tasteful, because of the absence of sny design, tbat another series was at once issued, on some of which is a scraggy oak tree, enclosed in a circle f dots, outside of which are tbe words "Massacbusettes in," while around tbe edge on tbe reverse is tbe rexainder of the legend, "New En land, An. Dora." On this reverse is tbe date, 1052, in tbe centre, with the numeral of value, NIL VI. III. or II, below it. On others of this design is a pine-tree: and while of these designs occasional issdes took place during nearly thirty years, yet tbe date 1052 is the only one used.

Our party was admitted immediately on the presentation of cards previous ly furnished at tbe gaming boose we had just left, and a gayly-dre-ised col ored girl admitted us to the parlors adjoining, where the Madame greeted us and engaged as in conversation for a few minutes, and then led the way to the place we bad come to see "the retreat." "It was a strange sight one that fairly astounded one at first glance. Here, in a room gaudily but not rich ly decorated and brilliantly lighted, were assembled at least thirty men and women, three-fourths of " whom were engaged in the fascination of games of chance.

They appeared to be play ing whist.

These are a few of the observations made during a short visit to a retreat whose exist ence is unknown to even tbe business men in its vicinity. You can use these notes aa you please." The above statement was handed in about four days ago by an occa sional contributor of tbese columns. But tbe denouement was so strange no mention was made of the reported existence of the female gambling bouse until a reporter had been sent to investigate for himself. It was found more difficult to obtain entrance to tbe place, as "newspaper men" are tabooed the precim ts of this pagoda of mischief. A deputy, however, ob tained admittance and more than con firmed the observations of tbe writer of last Tuesday's communication.

The will provided that the estate should be. held in trust, aud tbat the infant should enjoy a gradu al increased income, which should never exceed $10,000 a year; in the event of bis dying an infant, tbe es tate was to go to parties in the will, and for twenty years tbe owner of tbe richest estate iu Boston bas been comparatively poor. The old man's idea was tbat the son. by living on $10,000 a year, would accumulate aa unbeard-of fortune to leave to some oie else.
