THAT HIKED GIRL.
When she came to work for the family on
Congress street, the lady of the house sat (
down and told her that agents, book-peddlers, 1
hat-rack men, picture sellers, ash-buyers, rag- t
men, and all that class of people must be met t
at the front door and coldly repulsed. Sarah \
said she'd repulse them if she had to break t
every broomstick in Detroit. h
And she did. She threw the door wide r
open, bluffed right up at em, and when she g
got through talking, the cheekiest agent was c
. only too glad to leave. It got so after awhile I
that the peddlers marked that house, and the t
door bell never rang except for company. v
The other day, as the girl of the hoase was s
wiping off the spoons, the bell rang. She i
hastened to the aoor, expecting to see a lady, a
but her eyes encountered a slim man, dressed t
in black, and wearing a white necktie. He t
was the new minister, and was going around 1
to get acquainted with the members of his f

"Ah?um?is?Mrs.?ah !" c
"Git!" exclaimed Sarah, pointing to the s
gate. ?
"Beg pardon, but I would like to see? t
see?" t
"Meander!" she shouted, looking around 1
for a weapon, "we don't want any flour-sifters t
here!" f
"You're mistaken," he replied, smiling
blandly. "I called to?" (
"Don't want anything to keep moths 1
away?fly!" she exclaimed, getting red in the
face. t
"Is the lady in?" he inquired, trying to e
look over Sarah's head. 1
"Yes, the lady is in, and I'm in, and you ]
are out!" she snapped, "and now I don't 1
want to stand here talking to a fly-trap agent I
any longer. Come lift your boots!" i
"I'm not an agent," he said, trying to i
smile. "I'm the new?"
"Yes, I know you?you are the new man <
with the patent flat-iron, but we don't want i
any, and you'd better go before I call the dog!" <
"Will you give the lady my card and say <
that I called?" "
"No, I won't; we are bored to death with I
cards and handbills and circulars. Come, I i
can't stand here all day." 1
"Didn't you know that I was a minister?'.'
he asked as he backed off. 5
"No, nor I don't know it now ; you look j
like the man who sold the woman- next door ]
a dollar chromo for eighteen shillings." <
"But here is my card." 1
"I don't care for cards, I tell you!" If ]
you leave that gate open I will have to fling '
a flower-pot fct you!" 1
"I will call again," he said, as he went <
through the gate. 1
"It won't do any good !" she shouted after (
him ; "we don't want no prepared food for (
infants?no piano music?no stuffed birds! 1
I know the policeman on this beat, and if ,
you come around here again, he'll soon find 1
out whether you are a confidence man or a 1
vagrant!" I
And she took unusual care to lock the ]
door.?Detroit Free Frees. <
A "Growing" Mystery.?People passing
up High street at noon, might have seen a ,
very stout citizen bending over .a mound of ,
fresh earth in his yard, hands under his coat (
tails and his eyes directed upon a small green
sprig which had just pushed its heads above i
the earth. The stout man shook his head .
and seemed puzzled, and he called across the j
street to a neighbor who was trimming a rose ,
bush:
"Say Jones, come right over here this min- J
ute! I'll be hanged if something hasn't (
started to grow in my garden.
Jones crossed over. The two bent over
the sprig with bated breaths surveying it from
all sides, and the owner of the yard whispered : ,
"What if it should turn out to be Trifolium
reDens ?"
' Can't be. Looks to me more like Colium ,
emulentura," replied the other. "It's just
barely possible, however, that it may prove J
to be Triticum bibernum. Let me call Mr. ,
Smith." J
Smith, who was coming from the grocery |
with a roll of butter, was halted. He survey- (
ed the sprig from six different points of the |
compass, tasted of the soil, shook his head, (
and finally said: (
"It's my opinion that it is a specimen of the ,
Celastrous scandens, but I may be mistaken. (
It may be nothing but Thymus vulgarus"
"Oh, it can't be," replied the owner of the
place: "I'm almost sure it is the Hyproxys
erecta. It is pretty ha#d to fool me
on plants."
The three great men were looking at the
sprig anew, and Brown was about to observe
that it might, after all, turn out to be Aralia
racemosa, when an old man with a spade on
his shoulder leaned over the fence and called ,
out:
"I'll bring you a burdock as big as that for
ten cents, and set it out to boot!"
The three men melted away like gum drops
at a pic nic, and the old man rubbed his spade
acrainat-. th? ninlreta and orrnwlad
"Ten cents apiece is cheap enough for
healthy burdocks, an' if they don't want 'era .
they needn't have 'era."
A Practical Joke.?Joe Skinner was
once the greatest joker in Oil City, and one
of his tricks came near bringing on a riot one
day. Joe was walking along Seneca street,
when he suddenly stopped and began poking
in the mud with his cane, at the same time
allowing his other hand to slide over his shirt
bosom as if in quest of something which was
not there. His movements quickly attracted
a bootblack, who ran up and asked :
"Lost suthin', mister?" and began looking '
about.
Then came a merchant and two clerks out
of a store and began looking up and down
the walk. A teamster jumped off bis wagon
and joined in. A barber remarked, "Was it :
your diamond pin, Joe?" and this was caught
up aud echoed among the crowd which had
gathered, until the story grew that a diamond
pin worth $2,000 had been lost. The crowd
extended until it filled both sides of the street,
and all manner of suggestions were made, i
One man proposed to shovel up all the dirt
and mud and have it carefully looked over. 1
Another said the sidewalk ought to be torn 1
up. A man crowded into a place and trod on '
the 'toes of another man, who gave him a
push. A blow followed and a fight took 1
Slace, and in two minutes the police were ]
auling a man off to the lockup, while Joe
got outside the crowd and laughed at his aw- 1
ful hoax until the tears ran down bis cheeks. 1
The search continued for two hours.? Oil

"Mrss."?A woman who opened a small (
millinery store in the western part of Detroit, 1
engaged a painter to paint her a sign. When 1
it came home the other day she saw that it <
read, "Mrss. J. Blank," etc., and she called out:
, '
"You have got an extra 's' in Mrs., and
you must paint the sign over again."
The painter saw the error, but he didn't J
want the job of correcting it, and he replied : 1
"Madam, haven't you had two husbands ?" i *
" I es, sir/' ;
"You were a Mrs. when you lost the first?" j 1
"I was." I(
"And do you think a woman can go on i(
marrying forever, and not lengthen out her 1
title ? Mrs. means a married woman or a j
widow. Mrss. means a woman who has been ;
married twice, and is young enough to marry 1
again ; and only yesterday a rich old coon j J
was in our shop, and said if he h?d any idea 1
that you were heart-free, he'd come up?"

had refused her lover: "This is, perhaps, not

"But perhaps it is the first you have ever i

MAKING AND HANDLING MANURE.
Of all the fertilizers yet invented, says the
Cincinnati Commercial, none equals the welllandled
barn yard manure. The quality of
his article is by no means uniform, owing to
he different ways of managing it. To prerent
the immense wastes made by exposure
o sun and rain some farmers have advocated
:eeping it under cover. The simple fact that
aanure has been kept under cover is no ar;uraent
in its favor. The most worthless lot
if manure weaver saw was made under cover,
t was the result of stabling two horses aud
wo cows one year. The manure had been
wheeled from the stables to this shed. One
ide of it was open to the west, and here the
anure that had been packed by wheeling in,
,nd had^een kept wet by the rains for about
Aiaiw +V?n TXTQ a ar^ollonf. All

he rest was fire-fanged-and light, and worthess
as so much chad*. Since that year a different
method has been pursued. The litter
las been kept level and packed tight by arranging
the stable and barn yard so the
Irainage of the yard runs into the manure
bed or pit, and having sheep tramp over it
tnd keep it solid. One load of manure from
his covered manure pit is considered worth
hree made in the open yard. There is no
caching nor odor arising from the shed until
he mass is broken into when hauled to the
ields.
If the virtue of barnyard manure is to be
sstimated by the intensity of odors, this surey
is a prime article.
We can see little to commend in the prac;ice
of storing manure in the basement of
(tables, but much to condemn. There is,
lowever, one desirable feature in this method.
It does not freeze, and can be hauled afield
vhen the ground is frozen, and men and
:eam3 cannot be otherwise employed. It is a
nethod, however, that cannot generally be
idopted, because few have barns suitable.
The waste in barnyards generally is to be
leplored. When the litter and stable clean- .
ngs are piled in a little mound at the door
>r wibdow of the stable we have an excellent
levice for destroying the value of manure.
The centre of the pile is the highest, heats
irst, and the draft carries- off the gases perfectly.
In a little while the centre is fire"anged,
and destruction is complete.
The neatness of even a barnyard may be
secured, and it pays here as well as on other
parts of the farm. If at a place convenient
for receiving the manure from the stables an
spen pen be built for storing the manure, it
may be kept from scattering and making a
iness and mud over every foot of the yard. ,
Ihe manure should be kept lowest in the
middle, and well tramped. If the drainage
jf the roof be occasionally turned on this, all
the better. This mass can be loaded mote .
sasily into wagons and will be found of great- -J
Br bulk and strength than if allowed to scat- ;
ter over the yard, exposed to sun and rains, j
Just at this time when the ground is settling
jo manure can be moved to the fields fortunate
is the provident farmer who has turned
his manure pile twice, and now has it fine and
reduced in bulk. It is in condition to be at '
once appropriated as plant food, and can be
taken to the field with half the labor required
had it not been forked over. It can be
3pread evenly on the wheat or meadow lands, 1
while the crude manure is thrown off in
chunks or forkfuls, to smother plants and be j
a nuisance on the meadow or wheat field.
There is a class of farmers who have a mania
for making manure. Another class look on 1
it as a.necessary evil, and think themselves
fortunate to have a stable and barn lot on a
hillside or water course, that fall carry off
the nuisance. Making manure for the sake
of the manure is a little like paying a dollar
or two per cord for it and hauling it several
miles to the farm. In general farming this
will not pay. It may do for the gardener or
vegetable grower, who can take two or three 1
crops a season from the soil, and sell them at
a convenient, paying market. But few of us
are near such a market, and it is folly for the
producer of corn, wheat, oats and hay to conclude
that because the market gardener can
pay such a price for manures they must be of I
equal value to all. The general farmer can 1
best keep up his soil by rotations, and clover ,
and hops, better and at far less expense than
by buying or making manure to haul to his
fields. The' labor is immense, and a hun- !
dred cords of manure moved annually, will !
not treat all parts of a hundred acre farm
once in ten years; whereas by clover and
hops, or cattle, every third or fourth year the 1
entire farm may be well fertilized. Our con- 1
elusion, then is, that keeping stock for the 1
sake of making manure is unprofitable. It
is, however, profitable to save all the manure
that can be made from the animals needed to
cultivate and consume the corn and fodder ;
raised on the farm. In the matter of manure,
as in all other things produced, let none
go to waste but keep it all in good shape.
Ashes Beneficial to Cattle.?One of (
our substantial subscribers, in a recent con- 1
versation, gave his experience in treating
meat stock affected with the habit of eating
wood, chewing bones, etc. His cattle were
one spring affected in this way ; they became
thin in flesh, refused to eat hay, and presented
a sickly appearance. He put four bushels '
of leached ashes in his barnyard and threw
out to them a shovelful every day. They all 1
ate it with evident relish. After turning
them out to pasture he put a peck of ashe3
per week upon the ground in the pasture.
They ate it all up and gnawed off where it 1
had been lying. The cattle began to im- 1
prove, gaining flesh and looking better than 1
they had for several years. He now gives
one quart of ashes, mixed with the same
quantity of salt, to twelve head of cattle,
about once a week, and finds it to agree with
them wonderfully.
To Remove Freckles.?One ounce of

A FOURTH OF JULY ORATION. .
The following is the New York (Sun's advance
report of D. H. Chamberlain's Fourth
jf July oration in Springfield, Mass.:
Fellow Citizens.?I have been asked, as
i Southerner, to address you of the North on
;his anniversary day of- the birth of our comnon
Union. As a Southerner, I deeply feel
ihe significance of the request Could our
-epresentative men be brought more frequently
iuto contact with the masses of your people,
20uld we ofltener meet, as to day, to exchange
jongratulations on the permanency of the glorious
fabric which our fathers builded, and to
join in the expression of sentiments appropri
ite to this occasion, I know that much of the
misunderstanding, jealousy and suspicious
hatred that now alienate the sections would
iisnppear like the sulphurous smoke of yonJer
cannon that lately boomed. Therefore, I
;orae willingly and frankly, in the true spirit
)f the Fourth of July, bringing to Massachusetts
the frieudly aud sisterly greeting of my
Dwn beloved South Carolina.
For South Carolina, the State of my adoption
and choice, is also the State of my love.
Born and bred elsewhere, with family ties
and domestic associations elsewhere, I nevertheless,
yielded up to her my love and loyalty
when I entered her Palmetto fringed borders
in the dark days of reconstruction. I
went there without money, without political
influence, without previous acquaintance with
the people among whom I had cast my lot,
but fortified with a strong moral purpose,
and animated by a sacred missionary spirit.
I stood by South Carolina through all J;he virisistudes
of the experiment of universal suffrage?an
experiment fraught with much personal
danger, but of transcendently great importance
to civilization. I stood by South
Carolina while her citizens grew poorer and
poorer, and only left her when unavoidable
circumstances compelled the separation of our
ways. It is true that ray residence is no longer
in South Carolina; true that my professional
and personal interests now centre elsewhere,
yet ray heart is still there, and an
indictment for felony committed within her
borders still binds me to her sunlit groves
and smiling cities with a bond of exceeding
strength.
Therefore, as a representative South Carolinan,
I thank you, men of Massachusetts, for
the compliment which you have paid to my
cherished State. An exile thanks you from
the bottom of his loyal heatt. Whatever
may have been my political course during
the happy and eventful years spent at Columbia,
I feel that I at least brought away the
affectionate solicitude of my neighbors. I
feel that they remember me, and will contin
ue to remember me. I know that they are
anxious to get ine back. I know that they
recall my disinterested acts as Attorney-General
and afterwards as reform Governor, with
emotions of the liveliest character. They
never can and never will forget the day when
I, surrounded by men like Moses and Parker
and Neagle, and Cardozo, and Honest John
Patterson, but dominating them all by the
force of intellect and purity of motive, exercised
a permanent influence upon the destinies
of the belovedlstate. They still recall ray
official utterance, lofty, ringing and patriotic,
as when I wrote, "There is an indefinite verge
for expansion of power before u9. It is proposed
to buy 8350,000 worth of Greenville
and Columbia stock. This, with the 8430,000
of dock held by the State will give complete
control to us. We shall have in G. and C.,
168 miles, in Laurens, 31, and in S. and U.,
70 miles?in all, 269 miles?equipped and
running. Put first mortgage of 820,000 a
mile on this, sell the bonds at 85 or 90, and
the balance after paying-all outlays for costs
and repairs are immense, over 82,000,000.
There is a mint of money in this?or I am a
fool !"
Nor can it ever be forgotten that at the
darkest hour of South Carolina's darkest day,
when a burden of debt was crushing the people
of South Carolina to the earth and grinding
their estates and homesteads into dust,
when the biack cloud of a State debt of twenty-six
millions filled the whole Bky and darkened
the future; when able financiers like
Parker and Moses and Cardozo were in defho
npnnle were nn the Doint of
span, i revolution,
I, clearheaded and self possessed,
the ruling spirit of the storm, flooded Wall
street with fraudulent paper and calmly wrote
to Kimpton in my letters of September 3,
1870, the memorable words: Do the commissions
foot up pretty well t?Eh ! !"
Fellow-citizens of Massachusetts, do you
wonder that the people of South Carolina are
anxious to get me back ? But it cannot be.
An inexorable fate and a very considerable
interest in my own personal liberty keep me
far away from her beloved borders. I must
remain an exile, consoling myself as best I
mn with the mitigating reflection that John
Patterson was wrong?there is no more good
stealing in South Carolina.
Electric Lighting?Another Discovery.?A
novel system of electric lighting is
mnounced from California, where the inven;ors
reside. Only one lamp (with carbon
Doints) is used to illuminate a large number
)f apartments. The lamp is placed near the
generator of electricity and surrounded by
enses and reflectors, forming a chamber of
ight. These lenses are to concentrate the
ightinto as many beams of parallel rays as
nay be required, which beams are then earned
through pipes in the street or house to
lie places to be illuminated. At the bends
electors are arranged to change the direcion
of the beam, and whore light is wanted
'or one apartment, and the beam still has duy
to perform in an adjoining room, only a
iart of the beam is bent in the first apartment.
The iuvet)tors declare that they have proluced
105 separate lights with a twenty
iorse-power engine at a cost less than onewentieth
that of gas.

ministerial duties.
No one who has read the Bible with even
the least degree of care can lave fai led to see
that God has established a church upon earth.
This church is very old. It has existed for
near six thousand years, and although changes
have taken place in the outward modes of
worship and ceremonies, the church itself has
remained the same. The promise made to
Eve in the garden of Paradise has been repeated
over and over thousands of times with
additions, but never changed. The Old Testament
Church and the New Testament
nt t- it.- - _
unurcn are nit same.
The church under the Old Testament dispensations
had certain officers. Prominent
among these were the prophets and priests.
The official duties of the latter consisted mainly
in offering up sacrifices for the people to
God. Both the priest and the sacrifices offered
up were typical of Jesus Christ. So was
the altar upon which they offered up the sacrifices.
Christ Jesus 'was priest, sacrifice and
altar. Since that which was typified by the
Old Testament priest and 01(1 Testament
sacrifice and altar has already come, there is
no such office as priest in the New Testament
church. Neither is there sacrifice nor altar.
The duties of the Old Testament prophet
were t^D-fold. It was his official duty to instruct
the people, and God was pleased to communicate
his will to his ancient people by the
" prophets. These holy men spake as they were
moved by the Holy Ghost. To prophesy means
either to teach what is already revealed or to
predict what will take place in the future. In
Old Testament times there were a great numl>er
of prophets or perso ns called of God for
the purpose of making known what would
come to pass. This being the case we find
that a very large amount of the Old Testament
Scriptures consists of prophecies. All
of these prophecies in some way refer to
Christ thfe Messiah. In the New Testament
there is but one book of prophecies?the Book
of Revelation. All the unfilled prophecies of
the Old Testament are repeated in this
book. The giving of the book of Revelation
completed the canon of Scripture, hence no
more revelation will be made. This being the
case, there is, in the New Testament church,
110 person whose official duty it is to predict*f uture
events. There is ia the New Testament
church an officer wjio may be called a prophet
because it is his duty to teach. Frequently,
but incorrectly, this offic er is called a minister,
but his proper' name is preacher or herald.
Since a name cau make very little difference,
we may, if it is so desired, call the
prophet of the New Testament church a minister
and inquire what are his duties. The ,
duties of a preacher of the gospel are very clearly
expressed in his commission: "Go ye and
teach all nations, baptizing them in the name
of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy
Ghost; teaching them to observe all things
whatsoever I have commanded you." Matt.
28 :19. This is the commission. No language
can be plainer. The Saviour commands his
ambassadors to go to all nations, Jews and
Gentiles, for the purpose of making disciples
of them. This is the abject of his embassy.
His mission is to teach all those things that
Christ has in his word commanded. He is
not left at liberty to choose any subject he
may see fit and deliver upon that subject a
series of lectures. No. he must preach, the
things that the Saviour bids him preach. We
might say that the preacher of the gospel is
vpnnivprl tn nreaeh what, he finds tainrht in the
Bible, and nothing else. In other word3, to
teach the Bible is to preach the gospel. Hence
every church ought to be a school-house in
which is taught tlvadoctrines of religion as
revealed in the Bible.
It is also the duty of the minister ol' the
gospel to lead the congregation in their public
devotions. In no other way can the public
worship of God be maintained but by ha ving
in each congregation some one whose duty it
is to lead in the public services. Without, a
minister, God would soon cease to -be wori
shiped. God has sc ordered that a preacher
is an absolute necessity to the growth of any
Christian congregation.
[Original.')
WORTHY OF NOTE.
In every Christian congregation the enterprises
of the church are mainly supported by a
few. Whoever will take the trouble to examine
the subject will find that this declaration
is strictly true. A.ll church contributions,
whether of time, labor or money, are purely
voluntary. This is the case in the United
JStates, and it is as it should be. Xo man
should be forced, by law, to worship God. The
law should go no farther than to protect those
who choose to worship God. All men should
be left, untrammeleil by law, to choose whom
they will serve. This being the case, no man
ought to be bound, by law, to make contribu
tions, either for the support of the gospel in his
i own community, or for its spread among the
nations of the earth. Every offering, that * it
may be acceptable oo God, must be brought
willingly.
Other things being equal, what men give for
i the support of the gospel indicates, very accurately,
their spiritual condition. Any one can
1 see that for the vilest of mercenary purposes,
' men may make large donations to the church.
1 This is one of the many ways which ambitious
i men choose to gain notoriety, win applause and
secure for themselves positions of honor and
power. Such contributions to the church may,
with great propriety, be characterized as flaming
advertisements, and are good evidence that
the man who makes them is worldly wise.
When the widow cast into the treasury of the
Lord her two mites, she gave, by this act, very
conclusive evidence that she loved the Lord.
That our gifts and sacrifices mark our piety
is worthy of note, and that only a few furnish
the gifts and sacrifices of the Lord is also worthy
of note ; but this is not the tiling which
we had in our mind when we commenced this
article. It was this : Those who contribute
most liberally to the work of the Lord never
grow poorer, whilst those who contribute stintingly
rarely grow richer. One of the characteristics
of a true Christian is that he keeps
the Sabbath day and pays his debts. You may
find some men who will scrupulously pay their
debts who are not Christians, but it will be
found that these men, however honest they
are in all their transactions with their fellowmen,
are notoriously dishonest in their transactions
with God. They filch from God that
portion of their existence which he demands
absolutely for liis own service.
It will be found, on examination, that the
property which is beneficial to society is to-day
in the hands of humble Christians. This property
is not hampered with liens, cumbered with
mortgages, or held by fraud and violence; but
is free and unencumbered, productive and ben- '
eficial to the whole human family. In every
land where Christ has been embraced God is
fulfilling his promise to his people "that they
shall dwell in the land and verily be fed."
The temporal possessions of Abraham were
preserved for his descendants for more than j
two thousand years, and to-day the most valu- i
able property of the world is in the hands of \
the offspring of pious ancestors. j
The history of the world proves that no man '
was ever reduced to bankruptcy by sacrificing j
to the Lord. When the widow cast into the ;
I treasury of the Lord her two mites?all she |
I had?she attracted the attention of Him who .
commands the resources of the universe,
j The thing most worthy of note is simply the
! fact that those persons who are doing a thri,
ving business are those who never attempt to
cheat the Lord out of his dues, God blesses
! them in their basket and in their store. Of
I the good things of this life they have enough
j and to spare. They may not be rich, but lie
who provides for the young eagles provides for
j them. Their children grow up and" inherit
I their estates and enjoy the blessings of a eoveI
mint-keeping God.

LIVER PILLS,
tOR THE CURE OF .
Hepatitis, or Liver Complaint,
DYSPEPSIA AND SICK HEADACHE.
^
. _ r _ r\? 1 t :
symptoms 01 a i^iseaseu L,ivcr.
PAIN in the right side, under the edge
of the ribs, increases on pressure;
sometimes the pain is in the left side;
the patient is rarely able to lie on the
left side; sometimes the pain is felt
untjpr the shoulder blade, and it frequently
extends to the top of the shoulder,
and is sometimes mistaken for
rheumatism in the arm. The. stomach
is affected with loss of appetite and
sickness; the bowels in general are
costive, sometimes alternative with lax;
the head is troubled with pain, accompanied
with a dull, heavy sensation in
the back part 'There is generally a* 1
considerable loss of memory, accompanied
with a painful sensation of having
left undone something which ought
to have been done. A slight, dry cough
is sometimes an attendant The patient
complains of weariness and debility; he
is easily startled, his feet are cold or
burning, and he complains of a prickly
sensation of the skin: his spirits are I
low; and although he is satisfied that
exercise would be beneficial to him,
yet he can scarcely summon up fortitude
enough to try it. In fact, he distrusts
every remedy. Several of the
above symptoms attend the disease, but ;.
cases have occurred where few of them
existed, yet examination of the body,
after death, has shown the liver to
.have been extensively ^deranged.
AGUE AND FEVER.
Dr. C. McLane's Liver Pills, in
cases of Ague and Fever, when taken
with Quinine, are productive of the
most happy results. No better cathartic
can be used, preparatory to, or after
taking Quinine. We would advise all
wh? are afflicted with this disease to
give them a fair trial.
For all bilious derangements, and as
a simple purgative, they are unequaled.
BEWABE OF IMITATIONS.
The genuine are never sugar coated.
Every box has a red wax seal on the lid,
with the impression Dr. McLane's Liver
Pills.
The genuine McLane's Liver Pills bear
the signatures of C. McLane and, Fleming
Bros, on the wrappers.
Insist upon having the genuine Dr. C.
McLane's Liver Pills, prepared by Fleming
Bros., of Pittsburgh, Pa., the market being
full of imitations of the name McLnne,
spelled differently but same pronunciation.

ECHOES OF THE PAST.
(E. A. POE, LOQUITER.)
Many a midnight dark and dreary
Have I wandered, weak and weary,
Tossed tumultuously in spirit,
Which temptation's billows bore;
All my brain within me burningNameless
fiendish forms discerningWhile
with horror from them turning,
Help from Heaven to implore!
Still, these sightless monsters meeting,
Help in vain did I implore
In the streets of Baltimore ! }
O'er the pastl mourned in meekness, '
God was gracious to my weakness ;
Plucking out the tempter's arrows,
Rankling in my spirit's core!
Youthful love awoke from dreaming?
