"Why His Dog Bit Him.
About a week ago we heard one ot our leading citizens bragging about his watch-dog. He went on to say that Nero was a splendid watch-dog j that he would never even growl at a child, and at night he would tear any body to pieces he found nbout the premises. "Ain't you afraid," we asked, -that be will bite you sonjo night when you come homo late?1' "No! ablt of it; he Is too Intelligent. He knows my step as soon as I put my. foot, ion the gallery. Why, I wouldn't take 8500 for that dog. He is the most reliable biting dog in San Antonio.? About three days, .after the forego ing conversation took place, one morn ing early we met a policeman leading this identical dogout into tho suburbs. "What are you doing with 3Iaj. Jones' dog? we wanted to know. "He gave him to me to take him out and shoot him ?" "What for?" wo asked lu amaze ment. "Because he tackled the Major last night on his coming home, and .bit him lu thirteen places; he would not be down town lor a week." "But I hearO the Major say that dog was intelligent; that he knewjnis step. and wouldn't bite him, no way he could fixit;that'ho wouldn't take 500 for the animal," "The dog nin't to blame for it," said the policeman, gazing sadly at poor Nero, "it is the Major's own fault." 'How so?" we inquired. "Well, responded the policeman, slowly, "the Hogilldacnow his step and never even growled at bimbeiore; but last night, for the first time since he has had -the dog, the Major came home three honrs earlier than usual. and perfectly sober, and some how his Btcp waa very different from what the dog was used to ho didnt tangle up his legs asnnuch as common, and the dog was fooled by it, took him for a perlect stranger, and bounced him.. The dog.ain'tL blame; he missed the smell of whisky; hedidn't hear the Major whoop aud cuss and fall down in the cellar , as he always docs when becomes horae. so Jfero kept on bitiu' the Major in fresh .places until the family interfered." "Come on Nero !" and the sad funer al cortcgo resumed the Hue of march lor the brush. From the Ban Antonio Ecra!d. m EH6LMD FABMER. Mil Agricultural fcpaper Reduction of Rates!

Symptoms of a Diseased Liver. PAIN in the right side, under the edge of the ribs, increases on pressure ; sometimes the pain is in the leftside; the patient is rarely able to lie on the left side; sometimes the pain is felt under the shoulder-blade, and it frequently ex tends to the top of the shoulder, and is sometimes mistaken for a rheumatism in the arm. The stomach is affected with loss of appetiteand sickness; the bowels in general are costive,sometimes alterna tive with lax; the head is troubled with pain, accompanied with a dull, heavy sensation in the back part. There is generally a 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 Eitient complains of weariness and de ility; he is easily startled, his fee.t are cold or burning, and he complains of a prickly sensation of the skin; his spirits arc 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, Sexamination of the body, after death, shown the liver to have been ex tensively deranged. AGUE AND FEVER. Dr. C. M?Lane'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. BEWAIIE OP IMITATIONS. The genuine Dr. C. MSLane's Liver Pills are never sugar coated.
