DAIN in the right side, under the I edge of the ribs, increases on pres- .stire; sometimes the pain is m the left- V'V side: the patient is rarely able to"ie" on the left side; sometimes the pain is felt under 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 appe tite and sickness : the bowels in pen- era are costive, sometimes alternative with kx : the head is troubled with pain, accompanied with a dull, heavy sensation in the back part There is generally a considerable loss of mem-" cry, accompanied with a painful sen sation of having left undone some thing 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 sensa tion of the skin; his spirits ar low; and although he is satisfied that cm(- cise would be beneficial to him, yet - he can scarcely summon up fbrtitudu.

Several of the above symptoms attend the disease, but cases have occurred where few of them ex isted, yet examination of the body, after death, has shown the liver to have been extensively deranged, i AGUE AND FEVERj 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 who are afflicted with this disease to give them a fair trial. For all bilious derangements, and as a simple purgative, they are unequaled. BEWARE OF IMITATIONS. The genuine are never sugar coated. Every box has a red wax seal on the US, with the impression Da.

THURSDAY, OCT. 10,187a Now and Then. In order to show bow far Senator Tliurmao baa drifted in three short years, let as com pare what be said in 187S with what he cayt now. On the 31st of July, 1375, Senator Thurman said in bU speech at Mansfield: "You, my fellow Democrats are what are called hard money men, and I am a bard money man- That is to-day, we do not be lieve in an irredeemable paper currency; we believe that such a currency must necessarily fluctuate in value, lead to speculation and extravagance, and benefit no one but money loaners and speculators. We believe that our currency should consist of gold and silver. and for convenience, paper convertible at par into gold and silver at tbe will of tbe holder. In Ibis we concur with tbe uniform teachings of the Democratic party, with the opinion of every really eminent political economist the world over, with tbe lessons of experience fonnd in the history of every commercial na tion, and with tbe views of . almost tbe entire body of the business men of America." , We commend this to Democrats and Re publicans everywhere as one of the clearest most concise and forcible statements ever put into words of the present attitude of the Re publican party on the financial question. Not even General Garfield or Secretary Sherman could have stated tbe case better. But where do we now find Senator Thunnin, who ut tered those words, and the "fellow Demo crats'' to whom they were spoken? lie advocates, . as we have all seen, the unqualified repeal of the resumption law, demands that the Treasury cease all attempt to establish and maintain a coin reserve, and in bis latest speech, at Lebanon, leaps to the front rank of tbe fiat quacks by declaring that the greenback is money. Here are bis exact words. Speaking of the ideal currency, he says: "It should be the greenback. I aay it ought for Btveral reasons. In the first placu my friends, tbe gicenback is money. Why is it money? Becaui-c it is a log J tender-1 That is. as Mr. Thurman would say, the greenback is money not because of its con vertibility into coin, but by the grace of Congress, the fiat of law. Not even Ben Butler or Sam Cary could desire a more pli ant and abject follower than the Senator Thurman of 1878. Cleveland Leader. Hanging Over Niagara. ' "Henry Faxon, of Buffalo, never recovered from a flight that Blondin foolishly gave him, bis nervous system receiving a lasting shock. uionuin was auout to start uu tine oi ma walks across tbe chasm below Niagara Fails. Faxon stood laughing and Jesting on the edge of the" precipice 'overlooking the river 140 feet below. Blondin, motioning to the bvst8Ddcr8 for 'sUencc. seized Fa: ion under . ,c .:,. i betS armpits from" behind, and held hira for a second or two over the verge. Faxon's countenance when Blondin laid bold of bim was irradiated with mirth- YVht-s Blondin drew him back and dropped hira on tbe green sward he 'sunk in a heap, horror stricken. In the next instant Blondin, grasping his heavy balancing-pole, danced out on bis rope be jond the precipice, and, turning to enjoy the effect of hi maneuver, saluted bU collapsed friend with a comical gesture. The Monkey and the Dentist. One of the large monkeys at the Alexandra Palace had been for some tube suffering from .he decav of the riirht lower canine, and an fe B abscess, forminz a large protuberance on the juw, had resulted. The pain seemed so great I w;u decided to consult a dentist as to what s!ould be done, and as lito poor creature was at times verr savaze. it was thought that, if the tooth had to be extracted, the gas should be used for the safety of the operator. Pre parations were made accordingly, but tbe be havior of the monkey was quite a surprise to all who were concerned. Ha showed great fight on being taken out of bis Cage, and not ouly struggled against being put into a sack prepared, with a hole cut for his head, but forced one of bis bands out, and snapped and screamed and gave promise of being very troublesome. Directly, however, Mr. Lewin Mosely, who had undertaken the operation. managed to get his band on the abscess and gave relief, the monkey's demeanor changed entirely. He laid his head down quietly lor exmanination, and without tbe UBe of the gas submitted to the removal ol a stump ana tooth as quietly as possible. Yet He Kept His Word. They had been engaged about fifteen min utes and she nestled her head a little closer under the shadow of his monumental shirt collar, and whispered, "And now what are you going to call me, Algernon?" "Birdie!' be whispered rapturously, while bis voice trembled with tender emotion, "always and ever, nothing but Birdie!" And she fairly coo ed with delight. He kept his word, although with the growing precision of middle age, he has become specific and does not deal in sweep ing generalities any more, and so it was that day before yesterday a neighbor going in the back way to borrow the ax, acup of sugar and the cistern Dole, heard him call her an old "sage hen." Burlington Eaukeye. A Brazillian count, a billionaire, was din ing at the table d'hote of a fashionable hotel. His cutlet was to bis taste, and be ordered an other. "We only give one cutlet," said the manager, "and no bread with one Ash-ball." Without a word the count rose, went ; out, bought the hotel, returned, led tbe manager to tbe front door and kicked him down the steps then reseating himself at the table, 'said: Bring me another cutlet." They brought it. swift as the eagle cleaves the air. is of in An Exhibitor. An individual who was seeking to pass into the fair grounds without the formality of handing out a ticket, was ordered to provide himself with one, when be explained : "Why, I'm an exhibitor." "What are you exhibiting T" Inquired the official. "I'm exhibiting this 'ere ruined suit of clothes, which cost me thirty dollars, a rib fractured in a rush to get a street car, a wal let here without a cent in it, skinned ankles and. knees and about 400 spots where I've been stepped on by the crowd." "Can't pass In on that get your ticket." cried the official. . . , "Hain't that enough V "No, sir." "Then I'll exhibit a little common sense and so borne," continued the mdn, and be fell back and headed; for the city. Free Press. a of ful as ly. Lime on Wheat. Jeih Hiuris, who hits become no ted ad the ftimilitr corrwxDt1ent upon farm topics for the American Agneul torirt. in - liis recent book entitled Talks on Manure,' says: ; "Jinny lancer-i who ue lime for tbe nrst time on wnear. art) epi lo leei a tittle discouraged in the ttpring. I have frequently een limed wheat In the JDrloif look worse than wo are no lime was used. But wait a little, and you will see a change for the better.and at harvest tbe lime will generally give eood account of JNelf. There is one thins about lime, which, if generally true, is an Import nut matter to our wheat-a-rowers. Lime Is believed to hasten he maturity of the crop. "It is trufc of nearly all our cultivated crops,' nay the late Prof. Johnson, "but es pecially of those of wheat that their full erowth is attained more npeedily when the lacd Is- lime;!, and that they are ready for the hnrvent from ten to fourteen days earlier. This Is the case even with buckwheat, which becomes sooner ripe, .though it yields no larger a return when lime 19 applied to the land on which it Is grown." "In districts where the midze affcets wheat. It Is exceedingly Important to get a variety of wheat that ripens ear. ly; and if lime will favor early maturi ty without checking the growth, It will be of great value." Raising Pigs for Breeding. Pigs that are kept for breeders should have a mixed diet plenty f bone and muscle-forming food ample opportu nity for exercise. U permitted the run of a good pasture' (clover is the best), a moderate supply of corn will do them good and aid In promoting a healthy growth; but if the circutn- stances of the breeder are such that he cunnot have the benefit of pasture for for his pigs, then ha must endeavor to supply a substitute by using a variety of food such as skimmed milk, wheat middlings, ground oat, mixed with oil-menl accasionally. A most excel lent food may be prepared by mixing six parts of good peas with five parts of corn meal and one part of oil-meal; or the peas, corn and flaxseed may be cooked and fed without grinding if de sired. Oats and peas ground together and cooked make an excellent food. Cooked potatoes mixed with corn raeal make a good combination; in short, all the various grains and roots raised on the farm may be used to advantage in raising pigs, and they should nearly all be used when the pigs are not al lowed the run of a good pasture. A variety of such food, such as la above augmented, fed liberally and aecompa uied by plenty of exercise, will pro mote a healthy cud symmetrical de velopment and also insure a steady growth. N. . Herald. He Didn't Know. Hackensack Republican. was on a was a young man, and lind a memorandum book in his hand. Md was working away with a pencil, and presently a man leaned over and said: 'What's the score?' 'I don't know,' was the reply. Then there was a few moim-uts of silence, during which th.i young in in figured awuy until auotlier man ap pr on cried and asked: What inning is this?' , 'Don't know,' wa the sullen reply. 'Oh, you don't?' said the querist, sur- castically, 'well, you needn't be put ting on airs over it, as if 1 were r-nklng you the secrets of Free Masonry.' r lie hud no more than recovered from the shock, when another man walked over to hira and inquired: 'Was that last a two or a three baso hit? Thif made the young man mad, and be replied not. 1 ne inquirer passed, anil he enjoyed nve minutes' peace when a ragged lit tie urchin stepped up to bim and yell e-l: 'say, mister, how many runs ahed are the Jersey?' Then a man asked him what paper be represented, and while he was sim tnering with rage another lellow walk" ed up to him to make some inquiry, but before he could open hi mouth to do so the man whh the memorandum book cut him short hy jumping up and Hi-reaminu: 'I don't kuow the score; i don't Know wnat inning it ip; 1 don't know a curve pitcher iroin a history of Paraguy; I am not connected with any paper; now don't ask me any more questions. It's a pity if a man can't ait down to corn pose a few verses for a lady's autograph album without being bored to death about a game of ball.' Then he resumed his seat, red in the face, and was allowed to continue his verses in peace. Curious and Scientific. The "best brain food" has been de clared to be "that which is found to have the best effoct on the system gen erally." Organic impurities in drinking wa ter can often be detected by tbe odor. This is increased by warming. Pun water has no smell. Pure wines lose their natural color when treated with sulphate of copper, but sophisticated wines retain their color when thus treated. Linnaeus states the cow to eat 276 planta, and to refuse 218; the goat eats 449, and declines 12b; the sheep takes 387. and rejectt 141; the horse likes ZbZ, and avoids 212, but the hog, more nice than any of the former, eats but 72 plants and rejects 171. Prof. Stewart, of San Francisco, puts forward this theory aa to why earth quakes have become rare in that re gion: "At all seasons of the year there vastly more moisture In the air in tbe Atlantic States than in California, and I firmly believe that our over charged coft is being constantly re lieved of its plus-electricity by the Iron the overland railway, and that Cali fornia earthquakes are now appearing the form of frightful tornadoes and electrical storms east of the Kocky Mountains. Prof. Newcomb, the retiring Presi of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, In his ad dress at St. Iouls took the attitude of peacemaker between the theologians and scientists. He discussed jn excel lent spirit between the theological and mechanical methods of explaining na tural phenomena, taking as the key note of his address the proposition that science concerns itself only with phe nomena, and the relations which Con vert them, and does not take account any questions which do not In some way admit of being brought to the test of observation. He claims there should be no conflict between the two schools of thinkers. - I do it he just of at and Oold braid and ornaments are beauti on a garnet velvet hat or bonnet. the two colors harmonise beautiful The Telephone. The world stood still for a thousand years, And crept for a thousand more, This wonderful world with wings for ears, Like the Messenger god of yore And winged feet and winjred wand, And a wiug on its either hand. And more than Mercury wore. It bridles and rides a furnace's foal With iron and hammer for sire- Great clouds of white from their nostrils roll And it feeds its horses fire! Tbey are blooded stock, the engines swift, Beneath their heels the distance drift Like snows from Arctic Pole! They rattle across the meridian lines, And down the parallels play! Tbey marry together the palms and pine, A thousand miles in a day. The world has trained a wonderful wire. A nerve of a route for articulate fire, Aad taught the lightning to say: "Dear Mary, be mine" "Car load of Swine'' "One ton of cheese" "Maria dear" "Joy! it's a boy!" "I'm coming lo dine" "Send soap" "She's married to Fred-" Tbe humblest of words like angels 'fly A thousands miles in the flush of an eye, You hear before they are said.

Think of a girl in a lonely hour, Iso beau in forty miles; She sits by the tube of talking power, iShe thiuks a n-inute, and smiles, "I'll call my John," you fancy her say, "He lives but a hundred miles away. And banish the weary wiles.

If Hiram Lynde had been an Irish man, be would have been amply satis fied with his position as gardener aud hostler for MarK Harrington, jusq., which fielded bun good wages. Uut be was a staunch Northern Vermonter, who found it hard to realize there is a wide social distinction between the employer and employee in the suburbs of New York. To be considered an up per servant, and to be forced to eat in the kitchen with Bridget Malone and Ann McCarty chafed his pride terri bly. Kverv Sunday Hiram harnessed a pair of superb black horses into a cost- ly, SOIl-CUSUIOUCU czuimgu, m uiutu the Harrington family to church. While they were worshipping wunin, be waited outside, or rode slowly around the streets lo pass away the time, but was always prompuy duck when the congregation dispersed, to take them borne. Month after month went by. .Bitter Meetings in the meantime gained mas tery in iliram juynaes neari, auu angry mutterings were often on his lips, wnicn ne iounu naru to supprtew. Que tine morning he drove with the Harrinetons to church, as usual. As they lowly ascendi'd the steps, and disappeared withiu the sanctuary,, a strange light shone in his eyes, and sinking his hnd Hercely after them. tie exclaimed: Proud hyiiocrlte!-! There they go to worship God aud advertise their One furlune, through their velvets, silks .mil laces.

If preach iug is rood for them why isn't it lor me, too? Ah! I'll try an experiment. I'll brine their fashionable religion out in m Htrin liifht. or prove it nil a sham Ha. ha! ves. 1 will.' Four days .passed. A purpose had rloened in Hiiam's breast and he lonred to DUt it into execution One morning as he was weeding in Mr. Harrington's garden, he saw Joe Phelns leanioe against the gate, Hello, Joe! come here,' he called, Dleasantlv. Joe skiooed up the gravel walk to his side. His mother was a hard-toil Inir widow, who earned a scanty II veil hood for herself and six children, by ivrtshini?. Joe's clothes were so worn thatireat Hatches covered his knees and elbows, and only great skill In mending and darning held them to gether. Hiram surveyea mm cioseiy Pretty poor clothes you wear; hard ly fit for a pauper,' he remarked enerinul v. 'They are tne nest i nave,- repneu Joe, the hot blood mounting luce from wounded pride. Want a chance to earn a new sun in an easy way. In an hour?' asked Hi- ram. Yes, Indeed' answered Joe, joymi- ... . . . . ce Joe. I'll maae a iair. square uuor. Next Sunday morning, if you'll wear these same clothes and be barelootea, just as you are now, and go into tne church just after the Harringtons get in, and take a seat with them it's JNo. 105 I'll give you the best suit ol sum mer clothes in Darrow's store.' 'Oh, you are foolin', laughed Joe. 'Never was more serious in my life,' said Hiram, earnestly. 'I want to mortify these purse-proud Christians. want to see how these big-feeling people will act, to be in a row with a poor boy, half covered with patches and darns.' 'Oh. I don't want to go Into their new,' said Joe quickly. "Tisn't using them well; it's mean.' 'As you please,' replied Hiram, in differently. 'There's plenty of other boys who'd jump at my offor,' Joe reflected a moment. 'Yas, I'll it,' he said, decidedly. Mother would have to do a great deal of wash ing to get me a summer suit. I'll do to save her; but I hate to, awfully.' When Sunday came, Joe waited till saw the elegant carriage of Mark Harrington go by, ana then toiiowea hard afiwr it. He reached tbe church after the family had entered it. Hiram was holding tne noises in ironi the steps. Oiving the reins to a friend standing by.he and Joseph made their way through the vestibule.up the stairs lo the inner door. Here Hiram waited and watched, with- a chuckling heart, the boy as he timorously went through the broad al-le till he came to pew 105. Mr. Harrington was sitting the foot, and Joe slipped la by him, sat down between him and his daughter Helen, while the face of both showed great surprise.

His plan to humble their pride had failed. On Mouday Joseph came around to receive the promised remuneration for his service. Hiram was true to his word and gave him a good nuinnuT suit of clothes, which made him very happy. Towards evening Joseph Phelps received a notice, through Bridgwt Malone, that her master,Mark Harrington, wished to see him. lie entertd that gentleman's pres ence tremblingly. He bad committed a grave offense by taking a seat beside hun, uninvited, and he was In quiver ing expectation of being accused of it. 'Joseph, did you enjoy hearing Mr. Catlln preach, yesterday?' asked Mr. Harriugton, with an amused smile. No yes I guess I did I don't know, sir!' was the stammering reply, with wild, frightened eyes, and a face spotted like an adder. A low giggle came from Miss Fannie, who was sitting In tbe bay window with Miss Helen. Do you want to keep on going to church?' asked Mr. Harrington, kind ly and encouragingly. Yes, sir.' 'Then you shall. I'll give you an order to take to Mr. Darrow, and you may sekct such a suit of clothes as you need, and I'll pay for them." A joy ful I'ghl bounded Into Joseph's eyes.

Let ine get him these,' nd turning to Joseph- she inquired, 'How would you like to go Into Mr. Crawford's class of boys at the Sun day School?' O, very much, ma'am,' in a choking voice. 'I'll ask him to receive you.' 'I own a pew, number forty, in the gallert ,' said Mr. Harrington. You ca have a sent there. You are a good bov All you need is a chance to rise in the world, Joseph.' Thank you, thank you, sir. Thank you. Miss Harrington. 1 shall never forget your kindness, never, never nev er;' and with gratitude shining in hii eyes he left the bouse. in twenty-four houis. after, Joseph appeared beiore Hiram Lynde, dress ea in nis Dost. 'Do I look like a pauper now?' he questioned proudly. 'JNo; you looK like a gentleman': son. Where did you get all these new clothes?' 'Mr. Harrington gave me this suit: and Miss-Helen gave me a my hat stockings and boots, and I'm 'going to keep on going to church, and I'm go ing into tbe bunaay school. 'By Jingo; this beats all creation! exclaimed theamnzed Hiram 'I'm in luck, went n Joseph, gaily 'You gave tne a suit of lothes for sit ting in Mr. Harrington's pew, and they've gave me mm' her. It was a tip-top bargain you made with me, 'It cost me a half morlh s wages, responded Hiram. 'WHl, they've doBe handsomely hyyou, that's a fact, They never took no more notice of me than if I'd been a worm. I thought their religion was all a sham. Well my experiment didn't humble them after all; it just set 'em up higher.' This conversation had a listener least expected. Miss Helen was standing behind a spruce tree, and every word came straight to her oars. She went into the house and faithfully reported them. ' "fwas a trick ol Hiram's.'she said. 'He wanted to prove our profes sion. We haven't been kind and con siderate enough of him. He is a good man. and we ought to treat him differ ently just as if we were iu his place, and he in ours.' Hiram Lynde's exeriment proved .,.1 beneficial in three ways. He learned it that 'fashionable Chrisliais,' even, who wear velvet, silks and jew els, have often noble hearth, which beat in hopeful sympathy for the needy. It was the means of tntnxlu- cing Joseph Phelps to Mr. Harrington and his family, and they ever after took a deep interest in his welfare. Finally, it revealed to the Hairing- tons the duty of being more consider toward thoseservingthem, and tbe lesson was never forgotten. Saving Seed Corn. We have sometimes had no little difficulty procuring seed corn that would germinate. Some seasons the corn is not sufficiently ripened before frost. On this subject the Cincin nati Orange Bulletin tells why these failures occur, and adds a few seasona ble bints on the saving of tomato seeds: The perfecting of seed is the whole and aim of all annual plants; tbe whole energies of the plant, from ger mination of the seed down to the frost that kills the plant and stops the flow sap, are absolutely required to make perfect seed. Tbe immature sap 01 a young plant to never could produce a mature seed; it requires all the whole volume from in fancy to maturity, ine weas ana ine strong life blood of the plant, to give seed Its lull power ot transmission. Especially is it necessary that the last remaining flow of sap from the stalk, matured by aze, the season and the approach of winter, should enter the seed. Hence to deprive seed of this act is to weaken it; it may have vitality enough without it to grow and produce other seed, but it is itself im mature, ana must proauce immature To gather corn in the glased state. hang it up in the shade, is to de prive it of all tbe mature sap of the plant, and also of the ripening Influ of the sun. Nature never ripens seed in that manner. She gives it every chance, every Influence, every particle of nourishment from the sun's rays, the night's dews, and the perfecting influ of the waning season. This much corn especially, but also for all oth ers. Tomato seeds rcqusre different man agement, because tbey are more tender. this case leave tbe earliest, finest, smoothest, largest fruit on tne vines a slight frost admonishes us of win approach. Then gather them, them on a board in the sun during day, but in the house at night, for or four days; then cut the toma in half across the stem way, scoop out the core, seeds and all, throw into a bucket, till they sour and ferment, wash out the seeds, dtyper in the sun, not in the oven, and away In a dry place.
