Brigham Young thus interprets the

said they should not live there."

M. Jules Richard, in a remarkable ar

The Ritual Committee at the recent
EoiscoDal Convention at Baltimore re
commended, it may be remembered
that no cross should be carried by cnil
dren or others before the procession of
choir or clerev entering the church at
choral service. Crosses of any lasinou
.nil in anv number might be used in or
about the church, provided they were
stationary; and they might be freely
carried in nrocession outside the ctiurcti
and to the door of the church; but into
the church, or in the church, thoy should
not he carried. On this recommenda

Alexander Dumas' play, La Visite
des Noces, is being ventilated by the
Puria nress on account of its shameless
immorality. The France declares that
if the public does not damn the play it
ill ha comnelled to acknowledge that
obscenity has conquered the stage of
Pnris. The Patne calls it the most
scandalous and cynical the author has
over written. The Union says there is
enoneh immorality in the one act of the
nl.v in make a Zouave blush.' But the
Figaro reasons thus: "You will say it
:.:.n,,;u.iitiisi wife, a daughter
a mother or a sister to see La Visite des
Noces. T which I reply, do what is
easier than taking them there don't do
it! Hut how many books one would not

tures one could not show to bis daugh

pieces." Decline or Polysrasny.

PnWirumv ia nearly dead: actual sta
tistics, covering many families, show that
the number ol plural wives nas aimin
iBlted more than sixty per cent, during
the last ten years, notwithstanding the
great increase in population. The most
wealthy and intelligent among the Mor

Ai,tv" nf adilinir wives to the flock, and
are seemingly inclined to risk their
souls' salvation with only one wife. The
voung people of both sexes are not

in polygamy, and the more sensible of
all classes concede that it is jar oeuer
to have a small family and care for and
it th.n to hrino into heinir a

truthfully announced in his forthcoming
message to Congress that this relic of a
barbaric age was virtually extinct. It

total abandonment of the uncivilized

SPECIAL NOTICES.
Arrest Decay. When a plant or a tree be
gins te decay it must die. It eannot be re
vitalised. But it is not so with human beings.
A human ruin can ba repaired, strengthened,
restored, though a brown leaf or a withered
bLade of grass eaa never be made green again.
In the autumn of life, or even in its winter-
when nature seems to be giving way under
the pressure of years, it is still possible to re
tard the progress of decay, and to lend to age
mora than its wonted rigor. As a means of
promoting this object, Hostetter'e Stomach
Bitters is omiuestionably the most potent of
all restoratives. It will not make" the old
young, but it will prevent, lessen, or sooth
the infirmities which are the usual accom
paniments of the decline of life.. For debili'-y
and a lack of nervous power, from whatever
causa aieing, it Is the medicine that of all
others before the world, best deserves the
name of a sixct'aV. In purity, in invigorating
properties, la iu adaptation to weak stomachs
and fueble organisations, it has nooompetitor
among the tonics of the pharmacopeia, nor
among proprietory remedies. Besides its
strengthening principle, it possesses altera
tive and regulating properties of the highest
Older, and as an anti-bilious medicine is far
preferable to any of the preparations contain
ing mercury. Time has shown that for physi
cal dece,r. nervous debility, dyspepsia, bilious
disorders, and intermittent fever, liostetler's
Bitters is a remedy without a rival. T-is is
the season of the fall of the leaf; let It re
mind the old. the feeble, the sickly, to invig
orate and regulate their systems with this
great vegetable tonic and alterative.
