\ royal court is commonly supposed to be
a c- 'itro of luxurious an 1 extravagant in
fluences. but that of Roumania is not.—
Q u*en Klixabeth. when first she entered
the country as Princess, was struck by the
pomp and lavish extravagance of dress that
prevailed, and has ever since been energeti
e illy working ugainst it, and iu favor of
simplicity, modesty and economy. For her
self she is fond of the plaiu costume of the
Roiimania peasant girls, and habitually
wear* it at her summer home, among the
Carpathenians. Her manner of life, too,
both there and at Bucharest, is unassuming.
She rises early, often at four o'clock, even
in midwinter, and. without disturbing any
of the household, lights a lamp and sits
down to her work. Her room* are richly
adorned, in gr*.a! part with her own handi
work, and she welcome* visitors in the most
atl'able and unconventional manner. On
state occasion.-*, however, she bears herself
with imperial dignity and is every inch a
ijueen.
Wonderful Cm res.
The press ol the country is constantly
filled with wonderful cures wliich have trans
pired through the agency of "ome medicine
in their immediate neighborhood. Some of
these have some foundation, but a great
number have no better ba-is thau the flighty
imagination of the writer. The following
case, however, is without precedent, and any
one is given the privilege of writing to the
subscriber aud finding if he tells the truth.
Kkie, Pa.
Dr. Hartman—I cannot but feel it my du
ty to express to you, before your departure
.. m fiti- tbttTikstur theirreat bene
lit I received from the use of your medicine.
One bottle placed me square on ray feet,
ufter a sickness of four weeks, which confin
ed me to my bed aud then lclt me lame and
crippled. Three days from the commence
ment of the use of your remedies, the cane

fectly well. N. J. WrUiHT,

A few weeks ago an unique notice appear
ed in the Boston papers. A lady advertised
to do all kinds of cooking to order. Since
then she has been crowded with work, which
show» that there is a demand for cooked
food which cannot be wholly supplied by
bakeries and canning factories. She makes
a speciality of white and Graham bread,but
also furnishes meats, pies, doughnuts aud
cakes. Although an educated woman, she
is en adept in h -r art, and if her strength
only proves C'jual to the demand made upon
it. she has found a permanent means for se
curing a livelihood for herself and two young
children.
One voice all over the land goes up Jrom
mothers, that says. “ My daughters are so
feeble and <ad, w ith no strength, all out of
breath and life at the least exertion. \\ hat
can we dolor them?" The answer is simple
ami full of hoj>e. On-' t> four weeks'use
of Hop Bitters will make them healthy, ro
sy. sprightly, and cheerful.
‘ My observation,” says an old bachelor,
** leads me to the certain knowledge that up
t > twenty-five years of age a woman looks
f >r her prospective husband with an ex
pression of fear and tenderness, and from
then until thirty with an expectant and
anxious look ; but after that a relentless,
cruel determination haunts her eyes that
bodes hardship aud revenge upon him
should the truant at last be found."
Blaine's scheme to divide the tax on
spirits among the States would give West
Virginia $1,US1,0h) and Virginia $2,G-M>,0W
per annum. We do not know how popular
this scheme may prove; but suppose he
should propose to divide the spirits accord
ing to population, what would be each fel
low's ration ?
