I Shall Never Forget the First Dose
;- i : 1 , : " PBOVIDKNCE.
Mr. H. R. Stetiks ; j - :f-
ear Sir, I have been a gTeat sufferer from
dropaev. I was confined to my bouse more than a
rear, mi montosoi toe time i was entirely neip
less. I was obliged to have two men help me in
and out of bed. J was swollen 19 inches larger
than mv natural sue around tbe waist, i suffered
all a man could and live. I tried all remedies for
Dronsv. I had three different doctor. My friends
I all expected I would die; many nights I was es
i pected to die before morning. At last Vegetine
j was sent me by a friend. 1 never shall forget the
i first dose. I could realize its good effects from day
today; 1 was getting better. After I had take
some'five or sue bottles could sleep quite well of
nights. I began to gain now quite fast. Alter tak
ing some ten bottles, I could walk from one part on
mv room to the other. My appetite was good; the
dropsy had at this time disappeared, I kept talk
ing the Vegetine until I regained my usual health.
I heard of a great many cures by using Vegetine
after I trot out and was'able toattend to mv work:
I am a carpenter and builder. 1 will also say it
has cured an aunt of my wife's of Neuralgia, who
had suffered for more than 20 years. She says she
has not had any neuralgia 'for eight months. I
have given it to one of my children for Canker Hu
mor J have no doubt in my mind it will cure any
humor; it is a great cleanser of the blood; it is
safe to give a child. I will recommend it to the
worm, mv lather is so years old, and he savs there
is nothintr like it to srive strenirth and life to in
aged person. 1 cannot be too thankful for the use
I of it. J am, verv gratefully vours.

All Diseases op the Blood. If Vegetine will
relieve pain, cleanse, purifv, and cure such dis
eases, restoring the patient to perfect health after
trying uinerent pnysicians, many remedies, suffer
ing for years, is it not conclusive proof, if you are
: a sufferer, you can be cured? Why is this medicine
performing such great cures? It works in the
blood in the circulating fluid. It can truly be call
ed the Great Blood Purifier. The great source of
disease originates in the Mood: and no medicine
I that does not act directly upon it, to purify and ren
ovate, has any just claim upon public attention.

and all I can say is, that I owe my health to your
valuable Vegetine. Yours truly.
Albert Von Boeder.
It is unnecessary for to enumerate the diseases
for which the Vegetine should be used. I know of
no disease which will not admit of its use, with
good results. Almost innumerable complaints are
caused bv poisonous secretions in the blood, which
can be entirely expelled from the system by the
use of the Vegetine. When the blood is perfectly
cleansed, the disease rapidly yields; all pains
cease; healthy action is promptly restored, and the
patient is cured."

Lawyers' Fees in San Francisco.
From the San Francisco Call .
The "heaviest legal incomes in the city
vary from $50,000 to $60,000 per annum.
On the other hand, there are plenty of
lawyers struggling to a practice who do
not average $30 per month the year round.
Some of our leading attorneys require a
fee of $1,000 before having anything to do
with a case. Important tees in criminal
cases range- from $250 to $2,500, and in
stances are common -where inttch larger
sums have been paid. In 1874 Win. H.
Patterson and the late John H. Felton re
ceived $40,000 for defeating the local op
tion law lefore the Supreme Court. They
only worked on the case about two weeks,
and worked in-very leisurely style at
that. The money was placed on deposit
beforehand, and when a favorable decis
ion waa announced, they had onl to o
to the bank and get it. Each of them re
ceived $20,000, equal to about $300 an hour
or $5 a ruin ate, that he was actually oc
cupied with the case. The emotions of a
man who realizes that his ordinary pro
fessional services can be made so valuable
as to net him a small fortune in a couple
ofrweeks. must be very peculiar indeed.
In the celebrated city slip cases Mr. Fel
ton's fees amount to $250,000. On another
occasion he received $30,000 for his ser
vices in a Spanish land grant contest,and
on still another occasion was paid $10,000,
on condition that he would not appear as
attorney in a certain pending case. In
1870, S'. W. Sanderson resigned the high
position of Chief Justice of the Supreme
Court of California in order to become at
torney of the Central Pacific Railroad
Company. The inducement offered was
in proportion to the sacrifice and con
sisted of a permanent salary of $1,000 per
month, which was subsequently increased
to $2,000 per month. Some wealthy com
mercial firms find it to their interest to
employ' attorneys on regular salaries, that
range from a few hundred dollars per
annum up into the thousands. These at
torneys see to. the proper, drawiug of all
papers of consequence, and are consulted
on all occasions of doubt or importance.
Nearly all banks andt corporations have
their salaried tttorneys. Campbell, Fox
& Campbell are said to receive a large
salary from the Spring Valley Water Co.
Rumor has it that Bergin & McAllister
receive $1,000 per month from the Bank
of Nevadi; that S. M. AVilson receives
a salary of $5,000 per annum from the
Bank of California ; that Solomon Hey
denfeldt (formerly of the Supreme Court)
receives $1,000 per month for guarding
interests of Flood & O'Brien, while also
receiving a salary, in each case for offici
ating as President of a number of mining
companies; Reuben H. Lloyd, attorney
for millionaire Baldwin, gets high pay,
it is said. S. M. Wilson is supposed to be
in the receipt of the largest income of any
member of the bar. J. P. Hoge, in the
course of his career, has frequently come
in contact with $10,000 fees.

QUIN INE TONIC
THE MOST AGREEABLE TONIC
AND BEST STOMACHIC
EVER OFFERED THE PUBLIC.
A Russian convict never knows until he
reaches Siberia -what sort of a life is in
store for him ; for in pronouncing sen
tence of hard labor the Judge makes no
mention of mines. If the convict has
money or influential friends,, he had bet
ter use the time between h$s Sentence and
transportation in buying a warrant which
consigns him to the lighter kinds of labor
above ground; otherwise he will inevita
bly be sent under earth, and never again
see the sky until he is hauled up to die in
an infirmary. The convicts are forward
ed to Siberia in convoys, which start at
the commencement of spring, just after
the snows have melted and left the ground
dry. They perform the whole journey on
foot, escorted by mounted Cossacks, who
are armed with pistols, lances and long
whips; and behind them jolts a long
string of springless tumbrils, to carry
those who fall lame or ill on the way.
The start 'is always made in the night, and
care is taken that the convoys shall pass
through the towns on their road only af
ter dark. Each man is dressed in a gray
kaftan, hsvingbrass numbered plate fast
ened te the breast, knee-boots, and a
sheepskin bonnet. He carries a rug strap
ped to his back, a 'mess-tin, and a wood
en spoon at his girdle. The women have
black cloaks, with hoods, and march in
gangs by themselves, with an escort of
soldiers, like the men, and two or three
female warders, who travel in carts. In
leaving large cities, like St. Petersburg,
all the prisoners were chained with their
hands behind their backs, but their fet
ters are removed outside the city, except
in the case of men who have been marked
dangerous. These have to wear leg-chains
of four pounds weight all the way, and
some of the more desperate ones are yoked
threes to fc beam of wood, which rests on
their shoulders, and is fastened to their
necks by iron collars. Nobody may ap
proach the men to inspect them. The
Cossacks crack their whips loudly to
warn persons off, and scamper up and
down the line with lanterns tied to their
lance points, which they lower to the
ground at every moment to see if letters
have been dropped. Murderers, thieves.
Nihilists conspirators, felon clergymen,
mutinous soldiers and patriotic Poles all
tramp together as fast as they can go and
perfectly silent.. Then come the women,
shivering, sobbing, but not daring to cry
out, because of those awful whips.
He Wanted lobe a Juryman.
Presently the stillness of the Court was
interrupted by the entrance of a man who
came in with a shuffling, uneasy step,
with his hat in his hand. He halted and
leaned against the railing. Nobody took
the least notice of him, however. At last
he took courage and spoke :
"Is the Judge in V

"I'm lookin' for a job, yer Honor. I've
bin lookin' for work over a month."
"There is nothing for you here, sir."
"I thought yer occashunly givejurmen
a job. I don't read newspapers any, and
bein' a stranger in town, I hain't got no
prejudice agin' anybody. A pard of mine
wrote down to Reno last week, and said
that the jury business up here was brisk,
and it would pay to come up. As I'm a
V stranger to ye, and a little hard up, I'll
stand in and serve for a case or two for
half-price till you see what I kin do."
"What is your principal qualification,
"My strong pint is in making a jury
agree. No juries ever hang if I am on
'em. I jist lay low till the first ballot,
then jine the majority and argue the rest

never tumbled to before. Sometimes I
have to use force, but that's seldom. Once
down at Truckee, in a murder case, there
was a couple ot fellows standin' out agin

smooth and gentlemanly as I could for
over a quarter of an hour, I went for 'em
with chairs, and by the time I'd busted a
half-dozen pieces of furniture on 'em they
were glad to come in with a verdict of
murder in the first degree, and the feller
was hung not long afterward. In justices

you'll jist give me a wink as to how you
want the case to go, I'll guarantee to fetch

Value of Government Signal Service.
James H. Flint, St Nicholas for July.
The system of danger signals, adopted
by the United States Government, has
proved of great benefit to shipping. All
along the coasts are stations, at which
plainly visible signals are displayed, to
warn ship-captains of approaching storms
The reports af observers at the stations
are required to give all instances in which
vessels ha ve remained in port on account
of official warnings given. In these cases
danger was avoided, and statistics show
that disasters to shipping have been con
siderably fewer since the introduction of
cautionary signals. "v ; ,
The agricultural interests of the coun
try also have been greatly benefitted by
the daily bulletins sent to every farming
district in the land by the Weather .De
partment. These bulletins are made from
telegraphic reports received at appointed
centers. of distribution, where they are at
once printed, placed in envelopes, and ad
dressed to designated post-offices in the
district to be supplied. Each postmaster
receiving a bulletin has the order of the
Postmaster-General to display it instantly
in a frame furnished for the purpose. ,
The bulletins reach the different offices,
and are displayed in the frames, on the
average, at eleven o'clock in the morning
making about ten hours from the time the
report first left the chief signal officer
until it appeared placarded at every cen
ter of the farming populations, and be
came accessible to all classes even in the
most distant parts of the country;
The information given on these bulle
tins has been found especially valuable to
those farmers who take an interest in the
study of . meteorology, or ethe science of
weather, and the facts announced are so
plain, that any intelligent person may
profit by them. For instance, each bul
letin now announces, for its particular
districts, what winds in each month have
been found most likely, and what least
likely, to be followed by rain. Attention
given to this one simple piece of informa
tion will result in increasing the gains
and reducing the losses of harvesting.
Warnings of expected rises or falls in
the great rivers are made with equal reg
ularity, telegraphed, bulletined in frames,
and also published by the newspapers, at
the different river cities. These daily re
ports give the depth of water at different
points in the rivers' courses, and thus
make it easy for , river shipping to be
moored safely in anticipation of low wa
ter, when ignorance might. lead to the
grounding of the boats on sand-bars or
mud-banks. The notices of the probable
heights which freshets roay reach, are
followed by preparations upon the "lev
ees" and river-banks, ;to guard against

Tommy is twelve years old. His sister
Mary is sweet sixteen and a half. The
other morning Mary accosted her
mother with "Ma, see what a lot of
stuff I found in Tommy's pockets." And
she deposited on the table the following
articles, to-wit: Eight marbles, one top,
a broken-bladed knife, a leather strap, a
buckle, bunch of keys, a fishing line,
piece of lead, a smooth stone, four pieces
of slate pencil, a wornout pocket-book, an
oyster shell, a wounded jews-harp, a piece
of blue glass, a rubber ball, lump of chalk,
two dried fish worms, a sling-shot, piece
of licorice root, a song book, two medals,
and a juvenile land tortoise. Tommy
looked thoughtfully as the contents of his
pockets were deposited before the eyes of
his mother, and sullenly remarked that
"it was none of Sis's business, and he just
wanted her to let his trousers alone."
Next day Tommy captured the outside
pocket of his sister's dress, and, carrying
the contents to his mother, sarcastically
observed in the presence of Mary : "Ma,
just see what a lot of trash I found in Sis's
pocket!" and he produced from his hat
the following kick-knacks, viz: Three
hair pins, a soiled glove, piece of chewing
gum, three cards, a broken locket, elastic
garter, piece of ribbon, two slate pencils,
another piece of chewing gum, photo

broken tooth-brush, more chewing gum,

Easton Free Press.
He was a small but muscular boy, and
the calf was probably two months old,
with a development of unadulterated cus
sedness that would do credit to a Georgia
Kuklux Klan Captain. There was a rope
between them, and, as they; went down
South Third street, bets were about even
as to whether the boy was leading the
calf or the calf leading the boy. The calf
made a dash for-Ui Central Express off
fice. The boy pulled him back and he
made a dash for the boy, who ran around
a wagon and fell over a watermelon pile,
the proprietor whereof swore copiously.
"Come back, here, you infernal clod
buster, and pay for this melon."
"Say, M'hister ! whoa give me my ;
thunderation on you hat, won't yer?"
And the calf kicked up his heels and
b-a-a-d, and tried to run into a store, but
the boy sat back on the line with all his
strength and -suddenly sat down in the
mud as the calf altered his mind and
turned around to look at him. They went
quietly ten steps, till a dog barked, when
it took four circle around the boy in as
many seconds, tying his legs up in the
line, bringing him down in the mud again
and dragging him around until he looked
like an old hat that had been run over by
the ice cart for two seasons.
A philanthropic fat man by the name of
Wilson, a lawyer, went to the boy's as
sistance, but the calf kicked him on the
sh in and butted him in the condenser, so
that he sat down on the., curbstone and
tried to die easy. Then the boy and calf
untangled themselves and started down
the street like a mail train behind time,
until the calf, scaring at somothing,
stopped suddenly, and the boy fell over
and lost the rope. The calf at once took
to his heels, every boy in the street run
ning after and grabbing at the rope, until
it got tangled in the bridge, when, his
conductor caught him by the ear and tall,
and a lively fight took place all across
the bridge and out of sight, while every
body along the street proceeded to tell
how easy it is to lead a calf if you only go
their way about it.

The Virginia City Enterprise says:
About four years ago a farmer of Surprise
Valley found in the crop of a wild goose a
small quantity of grain, the like which he
had never seen before. He planted this
grain, and it grew and flourished, and
produced more than a hundred fold. The
straw and beardless head are said to re
semble wheat; while $he grain ook like
rye, but is twice as large. The farmer has
now many bnshels of this cereal, and has
sent samples of it to be planted in various
places in California, where food for cattle
is not easily obtained at some seasons, as
the stalk of the new grain, when cut be
fore it is thouroughly ripe makes excellent
An old sailor, of this city; after reading
an item which has been going the rounds
of the papers in regard to the new cereal,
the substance of which item - is given
above, finds his memory refreshed.: It
brings to bis recollection a circumstance
he bad almost forgotten, and has set him
thinking. He has thought it all. out, and
is now firmly of the opinion that there is
an inhabitable land at the north pole.
The old man. says : he was one of the
crew : of the Investigator, Captain Mc
Clnre, which sailed from England in 1850,
in . company', with the Enterprise, Com
mander Collinson, in search of Sir John
Franklin, and he certainly has in posses
sion one of the Artie medals given by the
English .Admiralty to all persons engaged
in these Polar expeditions from 1818 to
1855. In September of that year the In
vestigator reached a land which Captain
McClure named Barrings Land, and three
days after other land, which be named af
ter.Prince. Albert, where, about the last
of the month, they were frozen in.
While in the last named land, the ex
plorers observed many . wild geese and
other water fowl flying southward. Some
of the geese stopped at the place where
the ship lay and several were killed by
members of the crew. In the crops of
some of these geese he recollects to have
seen, and marveled a seeing, a considera
ble quantity of a grain such as the. new
cereal of Surprise v Valley is said to be.
As no such grain is known in the temper
ate zone, and as we have no account of a
grain of the kind being found in any re
gion of the ' world, he is of the opinion
that the" geese obtained it in a region ly
ing about the open Polar Sea.
He says no man has yet gone so far
North, but lie has found wild geese and
other water fowl flying still further to
the northward. As the geese are undoubt
edly wending their way to a well-known
stopping place far to the North, there
must.be something for them to feed upon
at the point where they stop. As wild
geese no more live on fish than do tame
ones, there must be, in the country to
which they goj grass and other vegetation
similar to that found in temperate regions.
The wild geese that halt on' the Pacific
coast make the grain fields their feeding
place, it is not likely that in the land
about the Pole their nature is so changed
that they feed upon mosses or fish.
Jefferson "Davis, on the 10th, on the oc
cation of the presentation of a gold badge
and a certificate of membership of the
Association of the Army of the Tennes
see, spoke at some length. He said : "The
question of the State right of secession in
1861 was at least debatable; but the course
pursued, by the Federal Governmen t after
the war had ceased, vindicated the judg
ment of those who held separation to be
necessary for the safety and freedom of
the Southern States. The unsuccessful
attempt to separate left those in power to
work their will, as it had been manifest
ed when they first got control of the Gov
ernment. The events are to recent to
require recapitulation, and the ruin they
have developed requires no other monu
ment than the material and moral wreck
which the country presents." The speak
er reasserted his unshaken belief in the
right of secession, and the duty of the
citizen to battle for the cause of his State
after secession. He reviewed the cam
paign from Fort Henry to Shiloh ; and
speaking of Albert Sidney Johnson, he
said : "Was it that his grand presence in
spired you with unmeasured confidence,
and the hope of happier days, when op
portunity should offer, or was it that your
judgment told you that you followed, as
1 verily believe you did, the greatest sol
dier, the ablest man, civil or military,
Confederate or Federal ?" Mr. Davis then
reviewed the operations about Vicksburg
and Port Hudson, and spoke in glowing
terms f their defenders. He said: "Let
no one suppose that in thus vindicating
our course ; in paying trne tribute to your
gallant deeds, I am seeking to disturb
such peace as we have, or to avoid tbe
logic of events. You have done your duty
in the past, and I would, ask no more than
that you. should fulfill equally .well the
duties of the present and the future. The
bravest are, as a rule, the gentlest, and
they are also the truest to every obliga
tion assumed. You struck for independ
ence and were unsuccessful. You agreed
to return to the Union and abide by the. :
Constitution and laws made in conformi
ty with it. Thus far, and no farther, do
I understand. your promise to extend."
Tbe Fwrla Exposition.
French journalists and others are still
making their calculations about the cost
of the Paris exhibition and the probable
deficiency at its close, for it is generally
conceded that it will not nearly pay ex
penses. It is now estimated that the whole
outlay will be 45,300,000 francs.or $9,000,
000. The receipts Irotn all sources, it is
calculated j wilt reach 34,500,000 franca
or $6,000,000; so that the deficit will
amount to over two millions of dollars.
The French . people seem quite satisfied
with this prospect, and there is no grum
bling at the idea that the government will
have to pay this sum of $3,000,000 from
the treasury. It is rightly believed that
the nation will derive benefits from the
exhibition that are cheap at that price or
even at a much larger one. How differ
ent is this from the feeling that prevailed
in this country in regard to the Centen
nial exhibition. Here a single city and
State had to furnish the funds for what
was really a national festival, and the pal
try sum that was, after much labor, ob
tained from Congress, had to be returned
to the Treasury after the exhibition waa
over. In generosity to great national en-'
terprises, the French "Republic excels the
Lakar and. Capital.
From the New Republic.
In this country there is no such thing
as class or .classes, nor can there be. . The
wages and salary, men of yesterday are
the employers to-day, or, as it is common
ly expressed, the laborer of yesterday is
the capitalist of to-day. Labor is a com
modity to sell; capital furnishes the
means for its purchase; but the carefully
husbanded proceeds of sales of labor soon
become capital and the seller . becomes
purchaser; the loborer, in turn becomes
the capitalist. The capitalist of to-day
who, for fear of loss, will not invest in
properties and commodities at falling
prices, where laborers before they were
capitalists, and many of the laborers of
to-day, many indeed who are now seek
ing employment, Without finding it, will,
in the revival of industry, soon become
capitalists and employers. All antagon
ism, therefore, between the employed and
the employer, between labor and capital,
is unnatural; all organizations based up
on the assumption of the hostility of cap
ital to labor are hurtful.
In times of business prosperity, when
all tbe people have remunerative occupa
tions and employment, there is general
contentment, and in times of business de
pression and industrial paralysis, when
wage and salary men are without employ
ment, there is discontent,, and. dema
gogues are even ready to point out the
wrongs of the laborer. Thus "when Mr.
Voorhees attempted to array labor against
capital in his speech on the silver bill, as
he was accused of doing by his Demo
cratic brother, Senator Eaton, he only
played the roZe of the deraagouge.

In the City of Washington, at the in
tersection of Pennsylvania avenue. First
street, and the northwest entrance to the
Capitol grounds, stands the chaste and
beautiful naval monument, surmounted
by the twin statues of Colombia, weeping
for her sons, and History, recording their
deeds ; erected by the officers and sailors
of the navy to the memory, of the officers
aud sailors of the United States navy who
fell in the war for the maintenance of the
Union from 1861 to 1866. Mr. Beck and
Mr. Voorhees are deadly opposed to this
monument, as, of course, are all the ex
Confederates. Mr. Beck, on account of
this monument, moved to strike out of the
sundry civil appropriation bill the appro
priation for continuing the Improvement
of the southwest portion of tbe Capitol
grounds, which motion came within one
of being carried; the vote standing 25
Democrats for striking out to 25 Republi
cans against. This monument, this com- j
memoratinsr in marble the heroic deeds.
and patriotic deaths of the defenders of
the Union, stirs up bad blood, they say,
and, continues sectional animosity and
bitterness. The building of monuments
all over the Southern States, however, to
commemorate the acknowledged valor of
some of those who fell in a lost cause and
the cause of wrong, is all right and prop
er. That stirs no bad blood, Incites no
animosity, and perpetuates no sectional
hate. Such, for the sake of the solid South,
is the reasoning of the Democratic party.
Ha4 Times tne Best for Young- Rea
Young men coming upon the stage of
active life during tbe present hard times
are much more likely to be permanently
successful than those who made their ad
vent in business during the period of
inflation, of high prices, and of fabulous
nominal profits. The great reason of this
is that young men who begin now, from
necessity, form their business manage
ment and personal habits on principles of
rigid economy. These in the long ran
tell so powerfully as to make, in many
cases, the difference between failure and
Men who began when everything waa

come down and adapt themselves and ,
their business to the times that try men's -purses,
as war is said to try their souls,
whereas those who commence when econ

no difficulty whatever in starting upon
an economical basis, and, once started, it
will be easy to adhere to it.
So that, for young men just embarking

paradox that bad times are the best. If.

At the late anniversary of the National
Temperance Society in New York, Gen.
Neal Dow, the father of the famous pro- .
hlbltory Maine liqnor law said :
"I understand that here in New York
it has been said that the Maine law has -been
a failure and that it has not been
sustained by the people of Maine. It waa
enacted in 1851 originally, and now, with
all its additions, it stands more firmly than
before in the public opinion of the State; .
and It is distinctly understood that no
man can be elected to a public office there
unless he is in favor of prohibition. What ,
has been the result? Our share of the na
tional drink-bill would be about thirteen,
millions of dollars. Ex-Gov. Dlngley
has said that the quantity of liquor sold
in Maine now could not be more than one
million of dollars, and he also statea ai w
same time that a good many persons had
declared that the quantity of liquor sold
in Maine, allowing largely for the amount
smuggled into it in yiolatlon of law, could
not be more than five hundred thousand
dollars. We have less than one-tenth of
the quantity of liquor sold in Maine now
than was sold before the law was passed.
There were distilleries in Maine, beforo
the Maine law was passed but there is not
