Another Balloon Expedition.
E failure of all North Pole ezpedi.
tions to discover the secret ot the Arctic
regions has stimulated the Aeronautic So
ciety of Paris to attempt an Arctic balloon
voyage. Extravagant as the notion may
appear, it is not more extravagant than
Prof. Wise's project of crossing the At
lantic Ocean in a balloon. One advan
tage of an aerial North Pole voyage is the
temperature of the Arctic regions, which
prevents the escape of gas from the bal
loon to such a degree that it is supposed
to be quite feasible to construct a balloon
which will last a three months' voyage.
Another advantage is the absence of dark
ness in the Northern regions, if the bal
loon leaves in the summer time the sun
will illumine the heavens during the
whole trip. Then, again, the permanency
in the direction of the winds around the
regions of the North Pole would be
another point in favor of the trip to the
North Pole over that across the Atlantic.
The size of the proposed balloon is fixed
at about 18,000 cubic meters, it is calcu
lated to carry ten men, three months' pro
visions, apart from the ballast, a number
of instruments, an anchor, and a drag
ging rope, which will touch the ground
should the balloon sink too near to the
earth. A ingenious arrangement has
also been made to prevent the balloon
from rising higher than 800 meters, or
about 2,500 feet. The boat of the bal
loon is to be lined with sheep-skins and
heated with lamps, so that even if the
temperature should fall to 32 deg. be
low zero outside it will be 5 deg. above
zero inside. A vessel is to carry the men,
the balloon, and the ingredients for the
manufacture of the necessary amount of
gas to about the seventeenth degree of
latitude. This will leave a trip of about
300 miles to the North Pole for the bal
loon to accomplish and the voyage there
and back could be made within twenty
days. Everything, however, is to be pre
pared for a full three months' trip. The
entarprise is exciting unusual interest
among the scientific men of Europe, and
is, indeed, one of the most wonderful
schemes ever conceived by the human
A Perilous Leap.
A Richmond paper of a recent date
says that Miss Mattie, daughter of Judge
Kobert Ould, was the heroine of a street
adventure which, in its culmination,
made the hearts of all observers leap into
their throats. She had just seated herself
upon a mettled horse in front of her fath
er's residence to accompany Judge B. W.
Lacy, delegate from N Kent, on an
equestrian jaunt, when the animal dashed
oil at a rapid rate through Twelfth street
into Governor and down Governor into
Main. Several colored men ran out at
different points to stop the runaway, but
the intrepid rider, who retained her com
posure as well as her hold of the reins,
called to them to desist. At that juncture
Charles Ross was driving slowly up Main
street, and perceiving the approach of the
runaway purposely halted his team across
Governor street. In a second the flying
steed was close upon the hack horses, ana
essayed to overleap them. A she did so
Miss Ould sprang to the box of the hack
and was caught by the strong arm of
Ross. The horse collided with the hack
team and was thrown down by the con
cussion. Several persons then rushed up
and securely held the three frightened
animals. Miss Ould was escorted into the
Bank of Commerce, where she received
every attention. She was not only un
hurt, but almost free from emotional ex
citement, and calmly related to her friends
the particulars of her unwilling flight.
Judge Lacy soon arrived and accompa
nieel Miss Ould to her home."
Balky Horses.
Veiling and whipping on the part of the
trainer or driver, over loading, sore shoul
ders or ill-fitting collars—these are the
causes that maKe horses balk. But if you
have a horse or colt that balks, while I
cannot, without a personal knowledge of
the subject, tell you what to do, 1 can
tell you what not to do—never whip. If
he won't go, let him stand still and think
ii over, and after a few moments' reflec
tion, and a few tosses of his head, he will
very often go on of his own accord. Or,
if this does not answer get out of the
wagon and pat him, and talk to him
kindly. A horse is very susceptible to
kindness and I have known more than
one quite vicious horse gentled into good
behavior by a few pats from a lady's
gloved hand on the moist neck and veined
muzzle. Sometimes it is well to loosen a
strap or start a buckle. I have known
the mere act of unchecking and recheck
iug the animal to answer the purpose. It
took his attention off in another direc
tion, you see, changed the current of his
thought, and broke up his purpose and
determination to resist. For this
same reason, an apple or a bunch of
grapes from the roadside, or a handful of
oats or a few kernels of corn, will often
accomplish what an hour of beating could
never effect. The truth is, a man must
govern himself before he can hope to gov
ern lower animals. A man flushed with
passion, his brain charged with heated
blood, his eyes blazing with rage, is not
in a condition to think clearly and it is
just this thinking clearly that is, above
all else, needed in directing and control
ling horses. Hence it is that contact with
horses, and an actual experience in teach
ing them, is one of the finest disciplines a
man can have. grows to love the colt
he is teaching anefno nature is utterly
depraved in which is going on the exer
cise of affection, no matter how humble
the object of it may be. His employment
makes it necessary for him to think and
this keeps intellect, which might other
wise have no development, alive. Th
language of the stable is not, as many pi
ous and ignorant people imagine, all slang.
Care aud anxiety are felt in the groom's
room, and consultations are held upon the
issue of which the health and'safety of
valuable property depend. Plans are
formed, and methods of procedure
adopted, upon which fame and vast sums
ot money come and go. Faults of na
ture and errors of education and practice
are corrected and the trainer discovers
that in schooling God's creatures he is
being schooled himself. Thus, in all
other branches of honorable industry the
horseman discovers that he is the point
from which one current goes forth and
another enters in. He bestows, and he
receives he educates, and is educated
and the life which so many thoughtless
people despise closes, as in the case of
Hiram Woodruff—the upright in art and
act—with honor, and a fame which can
fail only when kindness toward animals
and integrity among men are regarded as
of no account.—Murray's Perfect Hwte."
Shoes by Mail.
E Virginia City(Nev.) Enterprise
of a recent date says: "At the Post
office in this city we were shown an old
shoe which started from the N York
city Postoffice. Among the documents
stowed away in the shoe is one in which
is written something to the following
effect: «We, the undersigned, respectfully
recommend that our late comrade, Good
enough, be appointed postal cobbler,
this shoe being a specimen of his work.'
Then follows a large number of signa
tures. The specimen of his work is
about the worst specimen in that line
everseen. It is patched with scraps of
red leather, black leather and all kinds
of leather. The new half-sole is fearfully
and wonderfully made, and nailed on
With copper, iron, and all kinds of nails,
while on the heel is spiked a sort of half
tap. The documents traveling with the
shoe show that it has been in many
offices of the West, and it Is now quite
Covered with tags, postmarks, and all
manner of scraps of Postoffice wit. It
left last night for San Francisco. It
travels loose in the mail-bags and goes in
whatever direction the fancy of the clerks
sends it cruising."

One pound brown sugar, one pound
butter, one pound flour, twelve eggs, one
cup molasses, six pounds Yalentia raisins,
three pounds currants, two pounds citron,
one ounce cinnamon, one ounce mace,
one ounce cloves, two gills brandy—or
you can use, if you prefer, one gill whisky
and one gill lemon-juice, and the grated
rind of two lemons—two nutmegs. Add
sufficient flour to dust the fruit.
Having as a novice in cake making been
over and"again grievously tormented by
insufficient directions as to the manner of
putting ingredients together, we will not
subject another to the same trial of pa
tience, but give the mode ot procedure so
explicitly that the most inexperienced
may work with confidence.
Wash the currants and put them aside
to dry. Pour boiling water upon the rai
sins a few at a time, and take out the
seeds—scalding the raisins greatly facili
tates the operation of seeding and in no
way injures the fruit for cake. Slice the
citron thin, and do not leave the pieces
too large or your cake will be likely to
break apart when you cut it. Chop the
raisins pretty fine—it is best to put not
more than a quart in the chopping-bowl

Have ready a large pan or three good
sized bread tins, if you like better, pre
pared in the following manner: Fit three
papers carefully to your pan grease them
thoroughly. Make a paste of equal parts
of Graham and white flour wet up with
water. The paste should be just stiff
enough to spread easily with a spoon.
Place the first paper in the pan with the
buttered side next the dish spread the
paste evenly over the paper, leaving it
as thick as you would roll pie-crust. In
spreading the sides of the pan you will
probably need to use a little of the paste
to stick portions of the paper to the top
of the pan to keep it from slipping out of
place. Then press the second paper care
fully into its place with the buttered side
away from the paste, and lastly, fit in the
third paper as you would into any bak
Put in your cake, being careful to press
it closely into the edges of the pan place
it in an oven of the same heat that you
would use in baking bread keep up your
fire so that it shall cool down very grad
ually. When the loaf lacks two shades
of being brown enough—and that will
probably be between an hour and an
hour and a half before it is time to take it
out—grease a paper and put over it, and
spread with paste. When the cake comes
out of the oven leave off its cov^r till near
ly cold.
Four hours will bake a loaf that takes
the whole recipe, and it is not too long
when you make it into three loaves
anything smaller had better be taken out
a few minutes sooner.
Keep your cake in its case.
This mode of baking has the advantage
of never burning without most remarka
ble carelessness, and also that the cake is
nice to use within a week from the time
of baking.—"E.H.," in Hearth and Home.

The great prevalence of this disease, and its
fatal results, are well calculated to enlist our
best efforts for its cure. What is Consump
tion It is a disease of the lungs produced
by an acrid and impure condition of the
blood, which, circulating through these most
delicate organs, poisons and irritates their
tissues and invites the scrofulous hu
mors of the blood, causing the deposi
tion of tubercles and establishing local
scrofula. Another prolific exciting cause
of the development of scrofulous disease of
the lungs, or turbercular consumption, is
Chronic Nasal Catarrh, which, extending along
the mucous lining membrane of the throat,
trachea and bronchial tubes, finally attacks the
substance of the lungs, and here establishes
such an irritation as to invite the blood to de
posit its burden of impurities in these organs.
Consumption itself is not so often hereditary
as is generally supposed. That a condition of
low vitality may be transmitted from parents
to children is unquestionably true. It is this
deficiency of vitality which is inherited—
a weakness which makes nutrition im
perfect, and leads to the deposit of tubercles.
But thousands of persons who inherit feeble
vitality would never sufler from consumption
if the functions of the system were kept cor
rect and the blood pure. When the liver
becomes torpid, and but very imperfectly
pours off the effete, poisonous materials of
the blood, the lungs, as has before been
shown, become irritated. The general health
becomes broken down, and the person feels
languid, weak, faint, drowsy, and confused.
Pain in the right side, in the region ot the
liver, and sympathetic pain in the shoulders
and spine, and through the lungs, is generally
complained of. The patient has a dry, hack
ing cough—that liver Cough! Small, minute
tubercles are developed in the lungs, and per
haps exist for months all unknown to their
victim. Nothing is done to remove the tuber
cles by the ordinary treatment. Cough is
only a symptom of the disease, yet this only
is aimed at in the usual treatment.
There is no rational way to cure consump
tion except to purify the blood. Those poi
sonous materials in the blood which cause the
tubercles must be thrown off by exciting the
liver to action. Vitality must be supported,
the system nourished and built up, and the
development of tubercles thus prevented.
Remove the blood poison by restoring the ac
tion of the liver, and the cough, which is only
a symptom of the real disease, is relieved.
You thereby strike at the root of incipient con
sumption and cure the patient.
From the properties and remedial effects of
my Golden Medical Discovery the reader will
readily understand why it has been so success
ful in curing this fatal malady.
With it I have arrested the hacking and
harassing cough, the night sweats and hectic
fever of the consumptive invalid.snatched from
the jaws of death and restored to health and
happiness many who, but for mv Discovery,
must soon have fallen victims to that relent
less foe. God, I believe, has instilled into the
roots and plants from which this wonderful
medicine is extracted, the healing properties
by thj use of which Consumption, the scourge
of the human family, may in its early stages
be promptly arrested and permanently cured
I do not wish to delude, flatter, and then dis
appoint the afflicted by asserting that this can
be accomplished when the lungs are half con
sumed, as many do who, being devoid of all
conscience, aim to humbug the afflicted that
they may sell their often worse than worthless
But if my Golden Medical Discovery is em
ployed in the first or early stages of the dis

ual tests in hundreds of cases that it will pos

and strength. From its wonderful power over
this terrible disease I thought strongly of call

Bleeding from Lungs, Catarrh, Bron

ful Cure.
ROCHESTER, N. Y., Jan. 13, 1874.
R. V. PIERCE, M. D., Buffalo, N. Y.:
Dear Sir—I had suffered from Catarrh in an
aggravated form for about twelve years, and for
several years from Bronchial trouble. Tried
many doctors and thiugs with no lasting bene
fit. In May, '72, becoming neaily worn out
with excessive Editorial labors on a paper in
New York city, I was attacked with Bronchitis
in a severe form, suffering almost a total loss
of voice. I returned home here, but had been
home only two weeks when I was completely
prostrated with Hemorrhage from the Lung*,
having four severe bleedma spdls within two
•weeks and first three inside of nine days. In
the September following I improved sufflcient
ly to be able to be about, though iu a very
feeble state. My Bronchial trouble remained
and the Catarrh was tenfold worse than before.
Every effort^ for relief 6cemcd fruitli ss. I
seemed to be losing ground daily. I continued
in this feeble state, raising blood almost daily,
until about the first of March, '73, when I be
came so bad as to be entiiely confined to the
house. A friend suggested your remedies.
But I was extremely skeptical that they would
do me good, as I had lost all heart in remedies,
and began to look upon medicine and doctors
with disgust. How ever, I obtained one of your
circulars, and read it carefully, from which I
came to the conclusion that you understood
your business, at least. I finally obtained a
quantity of Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy, your
Golden Medical Diseoveiy and Pellets, and
commenced their vigorous use according to
directions. To my surprise I soon began to im
prove. The Discovery and Pellets in a short
time brought out a severe eruption, which con
tinued for several weeks. I felt much better,
my appetite improved, and I gained in strength
and flesh. In three months every vestige of
the Catarrh was gone, the Bronchitis had nearly
disappeared, had no Cough whatever and I had
entiiely ceased to raise blood and, contrary
to the expectation of some of my friends, the
cure has remained permanent. 1 have had no
more Hemorrhages from the Lungs, and am
entirely free fiom Catarrh, from which I had
suffered so much and so long. The debt of
gratitude I owe for the blessing I have re
ceived at your hands knows no bounds. I
am thoroughly satisfied, from my experience,
that your medicines will master the worst
forms of that odious disease Catarrh, as well
as Throat and Lung diseases. I have recom
mended them to very many and shall ever
speak in their praise. Gratefully youre

In another letter Mr. Spencer says I have
had a remarkable experience. Those familiar
with my past illness look upon my present
condition of health as an almost miraculous
restoration. The physician who treated me
during apart of my illness, and who is proba
bly the best surgeon and old-school physician
in this city, said to me last summer that,
'according to the usual course of things,
a man in the condition that I was in
a year ago ought to have died.'" Those
who are inclined to be skeptical and who
may doubt the authenticity of Mr. Spencei's
testimonial will have their skepticism ie
moved by addressing a short note to him. I
hope no one, however, will annoy him with
long letters, as although he feels very grate
ful for his restoration to health and is willing
to aid in spreading the glad tidings of relief to
other sufferers from Catarrh, Bronchitis and
Consumption, yet if one out of a thousand
who read this testimonial should write him a
letter asking an answer, he would find little
time to do anything else than write replies. I
hope, therefore, any who do write him will
say but few words, and not forget to inclose
a postage stamp for a reply, or you cannot ex
pect him to answer.
Mr. Spencer is a gentleman very widely
known and, among those who know him, no
one would pretend to question his statements,
nor doubt his sound judgement.

TASKTOWN, Delaware Co., O., March 20,18V3.
To Dr. R. V. PIERCE:
Your Discovery needs only a fair trial and it
will do all you recommend it to do and more
too. When I was fifteen I caught cold aud
for twenty-eight years I have been a perfect
wreck of disease, and all the medicines and
doctors' bills have run up at times to two and
three hundred dollars, aud never any better
but worse, when I gave up all hope last spring
of living the summer through. I received one
of your Account Books and told my husband
after reading it that it was too late to try any
further, but he said it was never too late. He
went and bought two bottles and I found it
was helping mc very much. Shv 1841 I was
troubled with Catarrh and Sore Throat, and
was almost entirely deaf in one ear and mj
voice wu8 dull as could be. There was con
stant paiu in my head. Now my head is as
sound as a dollar, my voice is clear, and I have
used ten bottles of your Diseoveiy. It has
cured me of Catarrh, Sore Throat, Heart Dis
ease, Spiue Affection and Torpid Liver. My
Liver was very bad. My skin was rough.
When I put my hand on my body it was like

A FRIEND of ours who is chief clerk in the
Governmental Dispensary says that no medi
cine chest is now complete without Johnson's
Anodyne Liniment. Wc always supposed it
was prescribed by law if it is not, it ought to
be, for certainly there is nothing in the whole
materia medica of so much importance to the
soldier and the sailor as Johnson's Anodyne
VETEBIXARA SURGEONS all over the cou»try

hair, stoppage of bowels or water, thick
water, coughs and colds, swelling of the
glands, worms, horse ail, thick wind, and

Finished Nail is the best in the world.
W A E tried various extracts
from herbs and roots, without benefit.
He noticed, however, that Alcohol, that
bane of the human race, was used in their
preparation, and he determined to exclude
the poison entirely from his own practice,
so that the sin of making men drunkards,
while pretending to core them, should
never lie at his door. Th Almighty
blessed his experiments, and in the I N E
GAB BITTEKS he has produced a pure,
health-restoring agent which banishes
disease in every form, re-invigorates the
system, and restores strength to the fee
blest sufferer. There is no part of life's
citadel where the enemy can make a lodg
ment that the I N E A I E S will not
find him, and put him to the rout. Im
purity of blood is the parent of disease
