All carpenters know how soon the butt ends of chisels split, when daily exposed'to the blows of the mallet or hammers. A remedy suggested by a Brooklyn man con sists simply in sawing or cutting off the round end of (he handle so as to make it flat, and attaching by a few small nails on the top of it two round disks of sole leather, so that the end becomes similar to the heel of a boot. The two thicknesses of leather will prevent all further splitting, and ii in the course of time they expand and overlay the wood of t ho handle, they aresimnlv trimmed oil all around. A Sweet Domestic Scene. A correspondent of the Providence Journal writes from that city to say : At noon-time I often take a" walk on the park promenades, and about that hour may be seen women with pails, etc., bringing dinners to their hus bands who labor on the streets. A woman came, met her husband, and they seated themselves on the irreen sward, and spread on the grass the dinner, he giving the wife some of the edible?. After drinking from the pail he gave it to her, gave her a kiss, and went to his work, and she to her happy home. On one of the benches sat a man and wife; she had brought his dinner. After gobbling it down he took up the paif, and, after tasting it, dashed the contents into her face and went to his work. The poor woman, taking her shawl, wiped her face, gathered up her pail, etc, and started for her miserable home. I wanted to put my cane over the brutes head, but 1 feared he would be too much for me, and let him go." Dissolution Notice. The firm of Mrs. E. S.

It is quite suggestive : Our statute books arc covered with snare s and traps to catch the unsus jKicting and increase the business of the legal class in extricating people from thee artificial meshes and pitfalls. America is the lawyer's paradi-e. Most of our legislators are lawyers. The brains and smartness of the coun try which once went into the ministers now lluws into the profitable, and remu nerative channels of the legal profession And, while legislation is on the increase at a tearful rate the social and political status of the legal profession are cor respond!' enhanced, and fees of coun sel in important cases have become enormous. The cost of counsel in many cases is so great that, people forfeit their rights rather than try to maintain them against the array oi legal talent that would be brought on the other side thus practically making justice a mark etable commodity. The rights and interests of the community suib'r much from this cause, and it is beginning to open its eyes to the cause of many ex actions and abuses. During the Fever season of last month the stock of Avers Ague Cure in the Old North State became exhausted, and before a supply could be received from Lowell, the suffering from chills and fe ver became fearful. A few parties were so fortunate as to have it on hand, and in Iredell county, the druggists eked out their slender stocks by selling doses a spoonful each for a dollar. Man paid ten dollars for a bottle, when the regular price is but one, and thought themselves favored at that, so valuable arc the curative properties of this pre paration, which not only expels the poi son from the system, but leaves the pa tient with unimpaired health and vigor.

"Jt " has :e?t ot a con- stanth croAviiiir reputation, based on its intrinsic virtues, and sustained by its remarkable cures. So mild as to be safu and beneficial to children, ami yet bo searching as to effectually ptinxe cut the jxreat corrup tions of the blood, such as the scrof ulous and syphilitic contamination. Impurities or diseases that have lurked in the system for years soon yield to this powerful antidote, and disappear. Hence its wonderful cures, many of which are publicly known, of Scrotal::, and all scrofulous diseases, Ulcers, Eruptions, and eruptive disorders of the skin. Tumors, Blotches, Boils, Pimples, Pustules, Sores, St. Anthony's Fire, liose or TCry sipelns, Tetter, Salt Ifcheum, Scald Head, Kiiigrworm, and in ternal Ulcerations of the Uterus, Stomach, and Liver. It also cures other complaints, to which it would not seem especially adapted, such as Drop sy, Dyspepsia, Fits, iNeuraljjia, Heart Disease, Female Weak ness, Debility, ami Leucorrhu)a, when ther are manifestations of the scrofulous poisons. It is an excellent restorer of health and strength in the Sprincr. T5y renew ing the appetite and vior of the diges tive organs, it dissipates the depression and listless languor of the season. Even where no disorder appear--, peopio feel better, and live longer, for cleansing the blood. The system moves on wit!: renewed vigor and a new lease of life. PREPARED LY Dr. J. C.
