It is a mistake tv snppnse that Castoria is not
adapted to grown persons as well as children.
They only need to increase the quantity. But chil
dren have so msny complaints for which--Ovtoria
is adapted like H Vmt CuHc, Sour Stomach, Worms,
Tetter, Teething and Croup, that it is especially
recommended for them.
Its effects are more certain than Castor Oil. It
contains no alcohol and is as pleasant to take as
honey It never gripes. By regnlating the stomach

and prevents feveiisfanesa quiets the nerves and

there Is so good a medicine as Vegbtinb, and I
also think it one of the best medicines for coughs

Dear Sir This is to certify that I have sold at

since April 12, 1870, and can truly say that it has
given the best satisfaction of any remedy for the
complaints for which it is recommended that 1 ever

customers testifying to its merits on themselves or
their friends. I sm uerfectlv coimizant of several

Will Cleanse Scrofula from the
Mr. H. R. Stevess :
Dear Sir This is to show that my son was taken
sick in January, 1864, with Scrofula, which came
out in large sores aud ulcers on bis leg and hip.
His leg was swelled more tnan twice us natural'
size. He had several doctors of high standing in
their nrofession two from Boston and three trom
Cbarlestnwa without gettingw Idt better. He was
obliged to tte wnerever ne was piacea, xor ne nan
no use of his limbs whatever. When we bad given
up all hopes of his living we were told to try veoe
tiiTe, the great blood remedy; and he had taken
it but a short time before we could see a great
chanire. The sores rau so bad that we bad to
ch.nire the cloths four or five times a dav. Still
he was getting better ; for he could move his limbs
and help nimeir a irtie. tie was sron snic 10 bh
nn in bed. and. bv constant nse nf Veoetiicb. it
has cured him. He has a lame lee, which he will
probably have for hie; hut we all Honestly Deneve.
if we had used Vkoktinb before we had bothered
with those doctors, it would have saved the use of
his leg, and restored it to natural health. I hope
all those troubled with Scrofula will read this tes
timony of me and my son, who is now well aud
able to speak for himself.

Of Gov. Hayes for his third term as
Governor of Ohio, took place at Co
lumbus on Monday, and was witness
ed by a large assemblage of the peo
ple, from all parts of the State.
Several military companies, from
Cleveland, Springfield and Fremont,
and the 6th Ward Hayes Club, of
Cleveland, marched in procession
with the Columbus military. The
day was so cold that the inaugura
tion ceremonies were held in the ro
tunda of the Capitol, instead of in
the open air, as usual. Gov. Hayes
was very handsomely introduced by
Ex-Gov.Allen,and rea 1 his inaugural
address, which 1s a brief, plain, business-like
document, recommending to
the Legislature economy and a short
session two very well-timed sugges
tions., The address will appear . in
our next issue.
Washington and Jacksoa, toward
the close of their second terms, hav
ing been spoken of for re-election,
each took occasion, in his last mes
sage previous to the election of a suc
cessor, to declare an intention to re
tire at the close of the second term.
It will be observed that General
Grant has omitted to do anything of
the sort I Brown Co. News.
Bro. Leeds, we fear, is either los
ing his eyesight, or else ho must have
read President Grant's late message
very carelessly, not to have seen the
following paragraph near its close:
"As this will be the last message
which I will have the honor of trans
mitting to Congress, before my suc
cessor is chose?), I will repeat or re
capitulate the questions which I deem
of vital importance, which should be
legislated upon and settled at this ses
sion." Is not that explicit enough to sat
isfy any but a stubborn and unrea
sonable partisan, that the President
does not expect a third term? Espe
cially, when taken in connection
with bis letter of last summer, to
Gen. White, of Pennsylvania, in
which he declared he had no desire
for a renomination? Why, then, do
Democratic editors continue to "im
agine a vain thing," and frighten
themselves and their readers with
this horrible "spook," conjured up by
their own foolish fears? It is as cer
tain as anything in the future can be
that Gen. Grant will not only not be
renominated, but that he will not be
a candidate. He has too much good
sense not to perceive that the over
whelming sentiment of the American
people is against electing any Presi
dent for 'a third torm.
Interesting Facts Concerning
the Great International
the Great International Exposition--Its Origin—
A Brief Description of the
Buildings, Grounds, &c.
Mr. W. T. Lawson, a student in
Wabash College,-at Crawfordsville,
Ind., whose parents formerly lived
in Marshall tp., in this county, spen
his recent holiday vacation among
his old acquaintances in that vicini
ty, and during his visit was invitd
to deliver an address at a School Ex
hibition. He consented, and read a
very interesting paper on the Cen
tennial Exposition, the facts for
which he obtained from Prof John
L. Campbell, of Wabash College,
who is the General Secretary of the
U. S. Centennial Commission. '
In his address Mr. Lawson states
that as long ago as 1866, Prof. Camp
bell first made the suggestion through
the press, "that the 100th anniversa
ry of American Independence should
be celebrated by an International
Exhibition, at which the U. States
should exhibit the progress of a cen
tury, and compare results in the
realms of Art, Science, Education,
Invention, Manufactures, Agricul
ture and Natural Resources, with
the older nations of the earth."
It is therefore claimed, and proba
bly with truth, that to Prof. C. be
longs the henor of first suggesting
the idea of the Great Exposition,
which is to celebrate so fitly the first
centennial anniversary of our nation,
and render the year 1876 memorable
in our history. At the first meeting
of the Centennial Commissioners,
appointed by the various .. States,
held in Philadelphia in 1872. Prof.
C. was elected General Secretary of
the Commission, which position he
From Mr. Lawson's address, above
referred to, a copy of which he has
kindly furnished us, we glean the
following interesting particulars in
regard to the great Exposition, which
may be relied npon as accurate, and
many of which will no doubt be new

The Centennial Buildings are lo
cated in Fairmonnt Park, at the
terminus of Girard Avenuo, Phila
delphia, and adjoining the built-up
portion, at a distance of 3 miles from
the center of the city. The Park
contains 3,000 acres, on which the
city has already spent over $6,000,
000. The Schuylkill river flows
through the Park, and empties into
the Delaware, 5 miles below the
city. There are 10 bridges across
The Park is diversified with the
most charming scenery, of hills and
vales, drives and walks, ornamented
with statues, fountains, &c. The
portion set apart for the Exposition
is an elevated plateau, known as
Lansdown Plateau, where ample
space is afforded for the many struc
tures now in process of erection.
The following is a brief descrip
tion of the Exposition buildings :
1. Main Duilding. Devoted to
Manufactures, Mining, Metallurgy,
Education and Science.- Length,
1876 feet width, 465 feet In the
center, on each side, are projecting
ells, each 416 feet long, and at each
end an ell 216 feet long. The Build
ing occupies an area of 21.47 acres.
At each of the four corners is a
tower, 75, feet high. From the cen
ter of the building rise four towers,
each 48 feet square, with spires 120
feet high. The building rests on a
foundation of solid masonry, the su
perstructure being supported by 672
wrought iron columns, placed 24
feet apart, which support the iron
rafters and tin roof. The columns
vary in length from 23 feet to 125
feet. Their aggregate weight is 2,200,-
000 lbs.; the weight of the rafters is
5,000,000 lbs. ;
Through the center of the build
ing there is an avenue 120 feet wide,
and parallel to this are numerous
aisles, 100 feet wide. At each en
trance will be displayed the national
colors of the country occupying that
part of the building. The building
will contain 21 miles of water pipes
and drains, and 10 mile3 of passage
ways. In its construction 3,928 tons
of rolled iron will be used ; 237,446
square feet of glass, and 1,073,000
snuare feet of tin roofinsr. The cost
of the building will be $1,600,000.
2. Machinery Hall Is the next
largest building, located north of
and in a line with the main building
the two presenting a frontage of
3,824 feet, or over two-thirds of a
mile. Here will be displayed all
kinds of machinery in operation. "In
this department," says Prof. Camp
bell, "the inventive genious of Amer
ica will probably be most prominent
ly displayed. In the London, Paris
and Vienna Expositions it will be re
membered that America took many
of the highest prizes for ingenious
and useful machines, and our tri
umphs can hardly be lcs3 in this
In the center of Machinery Hall
there will be a grand representative
of the progress of Steam Power
since the days of Watt, in the Bbape
of a Corliss steam engine of 1100
horse-power, which will drive all the
machinery in- this department
Hvdraulic ijower will budpIt with
water a tank 60 feet by 160, and 10
feet deep, at one end of which will
be a" water-fall 35 feet high and 40
feet wide. .... . - -:.
3. Agricultural Hall. This build
ing is 1402 feet long by 360 wide,
and covers an area of 14 acres. . It
is built of wood and glass, and in it
will be collected the choicest spect
mens of grains, grasses, seeds, nuts
and fruits of the world. Hera es
pecially will the .Western State vie
with each other, and may Ohio and
Indiana be second to none. The
cost of this building is not known,
bat it was paid entirely by the city of
Philadelphia. t - -' V
4. Horticultural Hall This build
ing is 383 feet long by 193 wide, and
72 feet high to ttie top of the sky
light It covers an area of l1 acres,
and will contain a collection of the
rarest flowers of the world. It is
built of iron, glass and marble, was
paid for by the city of Philadelphia,
and after the Exposition will remain
as a permanent ornament to Fair
5. Memorial Hall.--Thia is built
on a terrace, 122 feet above the level
of the Schuylkill river, and com
mands a splendid view of the city, to
the southward. It will be the most
ornate of all the buildings, and will
be entirely fire proof, being built of
granite, glass and iron. It is 365
feet long, 210 feet wide, and 60. feet
high, the center terminating in a
dome 150 feet high, surmounted by
a collossal statue of Columbia. This
building will cost $1,500,000, and is
erected by the city of Philadelphia
and State of Pennsylvania. It is al
so to remain as a permanent Memo
rial Building, and Art Gallery.
In addition to these five principal
buildings, the Government of the TJ.
States is now erecting a building for.
the display of the various depart
ments of the Government Congress
has appropriated for the purpose
$505,000, $100,000 of which will be
spent on the building alone, and the
remainder in -the exhibition, for
which it is designed, theobject being
to illustrate the functions and ad
ministrative powers of the Govern
ment in time of peace, and its re
sources in time of war.-
"There yet remains one building,"
(says Mr. Lawson) "deserving cur
special attention. This structure,
one acre in extent, was erected at a
cost of $30,000, subscribed by the
women of America. In this will be
collected a vast variety of curious and
interesting relics and handiwork,
which belong distinctly to their ef
forts, and for which they should
have special distinction. -
"Near Machinery Hall is a beauti
ful lake of several acres, in which is
placed a large fountain.
"At the foot of an elevation called
George's Hill, is an elaborate foun
tain, erected by the Catholic Total
"And lastly, upon the highest
ground in the Park, has been erect
ed an Observatory, 150 feet in height
It is an ornamental column of iron,
and visitors will be taken to the top
on a spiral railway.
"The demand for space is now so
far beyond the capacity of all these
enormous buildings, that England,
Japan, Germany, Sweden, . Turkey
and Morocco have erected other spe
cial buildings for their own use. .
"In addition to all these, a special
building will be put up by nearly
every State of the Union, bo that, ac
cording to the last report made by
Prof. Campbell, the whole number of
buildings is likely to exceed two hun
dred, covering more than 100 acres
of the Park."
. Over 3000 men are now constant
ly employed in the construction of
all these buildings and the other nec
essary preparations for the grandest
Exposition the world ever saw.

THE PRIVILEGE OF GIVING
An Essay read before the
Ladies' Missionary Society
The few words that I shall aaj this even
ing, will refer to tn great prrnlega of
working for Him, who is King of Kings
and Lord of Trds. What devotion doea
earthly monarch, sometimes receive ?
Many years ago, I remember, when read
ing the Memories of Mme. D'Aiblay, I waa
strack with the privations and positive dis
comforts ahe waa willing to endure for the
privilege of being near and serving her
Queen. It seemed wondrous strange that
a writer, whose fame was Enropean in ita
extent, who was the favorite of the grebt
Dr. Johnson, a lady whose social position.
the daughter of Dr. Barney, was so en
viable, whose familiar acquaintances were
the wits and emrrreos literary smb of that
day, should be willing to exchange all these
advantages for life of self-denial. Yet,
for the sake of showing her loyalty, the
courted authoress endured uncomplaining
ly, hnnger and fatigue; the rebuffs and
crabbed ill-humor of her royal mistress ;
the hard work and harder words, incident
to her dependent position.
For what end was all this self-denial?
Not for honor; for the name of Fanny
Barney was too well known, to derive addi
tional lustra from its connection with a
palace. Sot for wealth; for the consort
of George the 3d, like the rest of the royal
family, waa proverbial for her parsimony.
It waa devotion to her sovereign, pure and
unalloyed by baser motreee, that led this
distinguished woman to give np so much
that made her life delightful.
Tho' her zeal was mistaken and mis
placed, can we not, my sisters, learn some
thing from I sr example ? 'What eaa we do
to show onr loyalty to our King,, our love
to onr Redeemer ? He who spoke, and it
was done ; who commanded, and it stood
fast; who said: "Let there be light, and
there waa light ;" does not require onr fee
ble efforts, our puny aid. In hia great
power and might, he could call the Son of
.Righteousness to send his beams athwart
the benighted souls of those, who are still
in the "region and shadow of death," and
let man stand still and wonder at the mira
cles of grace, .wrought by his powerful

weak instrumentality in this work, that

in view, when he would thus teach ua
practically, that "it is more blessed to give
than to receive."
O, my sisters ! 'What an inestimable
honor is ours ! Co-workers with God, in.
doing good to our fellow-sinners ! What an
amazing grace is this that permits us, who
so often err, whose service is at times so
cold and formal, and even so grudgingly
rendered, to !abor with and for him ! And
best of all, not only the gifted and wealthy
may help, bat the lowly and poor.

and the single garment of a Dorcas as pre

it worthy of acceptance. That, we all
may obtain, if we only seek aright Oar

We may take a lesson from the heathen
Longoos. Before sitting to their morning
meal, every member of the family, from
the aged grand-parents to the youngest
child, gives a part of his portion to the
idol whom he ignorantly worships. "Shall
we, whose souls are lighted with wisdom
from on high," do less than the savage
Let us, my sisters, thanking God for
what he has permitted as, as a Society, to
do for hia in the past, with renewed zeal
and diligence, do with our might, what
our hands find to do, and let us rejoice
that such a wide field is open before ua.
In these latter days, we stand the
same plane of Christian effort as do onr
brethren., Let as not be deterred in onr
endeavors to do good, by the thought that
can do but little. Strength is not
gained by inactivity, nor is progress made
by standing still. In this extended' field,
each can find something suited to her tal
ent and capacity. The Eainbow is made
of variously colored zones, yet formed by
the same light, reflected through many
tiny drops. So may we all, in our individ
ual lives, reflect the light of the Gospel,
and our Society, with its young and vigor
ous bands, be the meansjf doing great
and lasting benefit to the Church and to
the world. E. L. G. G.
