Symptoms of a Diseased Liver.
DAIN in the right side, under the
I edge of the ribs, increases on pres-
.stire; sometimes the pain is m the left-
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.

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,

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.

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
"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:
. ,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
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.

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
"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."

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

have frequently een limed wheat In

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

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.

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!

And banish the weary wiles.
Behold them at the ends of the lines,

Mr. Harrington's garden, he saw Joe
Phelns leanioe against the gate,
Hello, Joe! come here,' he called,
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

'They are tne nest i nave,- repneu
Joe, the hot blood mounting

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.

'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
'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.
'That was capitally done,' thought
Hiram, exultingly. 'Joe is a trump
anywhere. Now the rich and the poor
areTside by side, and in God's eyes, one
Is no better than the other.'

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

a grave offense by taking a seat beside

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.
'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.

nd turning to Joseph- she inquired,
'How would you like to go Into Mr.
Crawford's class of boys at the Sun

'Mr. Harrington gave me this suit:

'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

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
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

corn is not sufficiently ripened before

Especially is it necessary that the last
