Therefore, medicines that will strengthen these organs and at the same time cleanse and purify and renew the blood, will have a tendency to cure the major ity of human ailments. Such a remedy is Dr. Guysotfs Yellow Dock and Sarsaparila, and, although pro ducing no active cathartic or diu retic effect, its use will soon establish a painless regularity of urinary and digestive functions. It has long ago proven itself a specific for scrofula and other syphilitic disorders, cur ing such diseases even when all other treatment, including Hot Springs, failed. A great point in its favor is that it contains no mercury or any mineral poisons, and will never harm the most delicate con stitution. It merely makes one feel buoyant and rids the system of blood impurities and other in ternal and external indications of failing health. Why? Why? Why? JS it that so many neglect coughs and colds until they get con sumption? Why is it that so many die of consumption ? It is because they will not come and be healed. Every one knows a sure conqueror of throat and lung dis eases is Or. W: star's Balsam of Wild Cherry, and that it is obtainable throughout the lengtWnd breadth of our land. Reader,Vj you suffer, hasten and procure a bottle. It is pleasant to take and never fails to give satisfaction. A single dose will cure an ordinary cough.

This has been a vexed question among physicians, opinions, even in the same school, being strangely di vergent. Of this, however, the public are convinced: it is a terribly preva lent disease, and the average doctor meets but with scant success in treat ing it. Consumption is in reality scrofula of the lungs, and is liable to attack any whose blood is tainted. For driving out the scrofulous humors, and thus- removing the predisposing cause, Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is a sovereign remedy. It purifies bad blood, heals scrofulous ul cers, and, whatever difference of opin ion exists as to curing advanced cases of consumption, it regains that many pronounced "incurable" have been by it brought back from the brink of the grave to restored health and vigor.

Grover had a little lamb, Just like the nursery maid ; With English shears he clipped its wool. And called the lamb "Free Trade." Said Grover : '"Dan., we'll find sonfe day. When at the lamb we peep, That In onr care it's grown to be A rousting British sheep." tfhe lamb got into Congress once And lost Its precious wool ; The Democrats there cut It off To please old Johnny Bull. And when the fall elections came, Said Grover, "Daniel, dear. We'll bear now from that little lamb Which once we loved to shear. "I wonder If Its fleece has grown ? I think not, Dan, don't you ? We clipped it very close, you know. For England told us to." And while the President still had His little lamb In mind, A something like a cyclone struck Him very hard behind. Cried Grover, "Daniel, what was that ? I'm all broke up, I am ; Was It a cyclone on the jump ?" "No, Grover, 'twas the lamb." They bound a red bandana on The bruised and bleeding spot; They tried to whisper words of cheer, But cheered he would be not. And when they raised him up to see His fleece-robbed little lamb. He fonnd that It had grown to he A big Protection ram. "What made the lamb butt Grover so ?" The children asked at school; "It was because," the teacher said, "He robbed it of Its wool." And not a soul In all the land For Grover then was sad ; Such Is the simple story of The lamb onr Grover had. Dayton Journal. From The Independent, N. Y.J GEN. BENJAMIN HARRISON. BY THE EEV. M. L. HAINES, Pastor First Prbsbyterian Church, Indian apolis, Ind. The Editor of The Independent: Your request for information con cerning General Harrison is before me. I suppose your desire is to learn especially what he has been in his re lations to the church of which he is a member, and how he is regarded here by those who have been intimately as sociated with him in religious and so cial relations. When he came to Indianapolis as a young lawyer at the age of twenty two he was already a professing Chris tian. He ha4 united with the Presby terian church of Oxford, Ohio, during his student life in Miami University. Mrs. Harrison and he brought their church letters with them and identified themselves immediately with the First Presbyterian Church of this city. During the thirty-four years since that time they have been among its most consistent, efficient and honored members. The Rev. Drs. J. H. Nixon, of Wil mington, R. D. Harper, of Philadel phia, J. P. Kumler, of Pittsburg, and Myron Reed, of Denver, each of whom has been in succession the pastor of the First church, could, I doubt not, give interesting reminiscences of the help they received from this elder and his wife. Mr. Harrison when but twenty-four years of age was elected to the office of deacon, and four years later, in January 1861, under Dr. Nixon's pastorate, was made an elder, the ordination service as the church record reads being "performed by the laying on of the hands of the session." For some time before the War Mr. Harrison was superintendent of the Sunday-school, and after his return from the army was for a number of years, up to his election as United States Senator, the teacher of the con gregational Bible-class for men. So successful was he in this work that he drew to the class a large number of young men active in business and professional life. I meet among the officers and members of the churches of different denominations in the city not a few who speak with enthusiasm of the instruction and the inspiration to a true life they received while mem bers of that class. One of its former members said to me yesterday: "Gen eral Harrison always had a clear con ception of the truth in his head and he had that truth also on his hearth' Amidst the press of professional en gagements he somehow so managed as to be rarely absent, and during one of the political campaigns, when he was speaking six days in the week, insisted that his appointments should be so ar ranged that he could get back to Indi anapolis Saturday evening, and thus be enabled to meet his class Sunday morning. The faithfulness to duty thus exhibited has ever been a marked characteristic of the man. This faithfulness shows itself, also, in the regularity of his attendance upon the Sunday and mid-week ser vices of his church, and in the loyal and thorough way he meets the re sponsibilities that rest upon him as an officer. He takes hold of his duties with both hands earnestly. "Our re sponsibility to God" is a phrase 1 have heard him use a number of times in his prayers, and in such a tone as to make it clear that it is one of the great truths that shape his thinking and conduct. I sat in his office on Monday last with a few gentlemen w,mle the bul letins were being brought in one after another, announcing the ballots five minutes after they were cast in the Chicago Convention. The calmest person in that little group was the one most interested in the result. When, at the beginning of the seventh ballot, the word came "California solid for Harrison," a friend sitting next to the General turned to him and said excit edly : "General, that settles it, you are going to receive the nomination; how do you feel?" He answered in his. quiet, deliberate way: "Well if it does settle it, I feel more concerned than I did the other day when I thought I was beaten." Those who hear General Harrison, when called upon to lead in prayer in the Thursday evening service in his church, cannot but notice the simplic ity and chasteness of expression, the humility of spirit and the deep sense of reverence that characterize his ut terances. I venture to allude to this because the real disposition of man's heart often comes to its clearest be trayal in his prayers. There is about General Harrison an utter absence of pretense or affecta tion. He discards any attempt to make a show of himself, and would be the last person to speak or act for mere effect. Open and straightforward in both language and actions, he lacks that quality of a politician which makes one expert at "pulling wires" and "laying pipes." Against the urgency of certain friends he steadfastly persisted in his refusal to take any steps which would place him in the position of a seeker after the nomination to the office of President, and received that nomina tion as I know from unquestioned authority absolutely unpledged. The only promise he made was that if elected he would conduct the adminis tration on Republican principles. He impresses one as being a man of balanced mind and clear convictions who would give any truth brought before him a fair chance, but who would allow nothing to swerve him from the path of duty. With him a promise is sacred; with him yes means yes and no means no. He is not a man desirous of dictating to others nor will he allow himself to be dic tated to. Decided in his convictions, broad in his views, inspired by a high moral purpose, ruled by a conscience both strong and informed, he has led a life in this city conspicuous for its probity and its stainless integrity. One who was his law partner for several years said of him : "He had as high a sense of honor as any one I ever knew, and the keenest sense of justice I think I ever saw in any one. This was especially striking in him. It came, I think, from the fact that he was something more than a man who sought to do justly. He was a spiritually minded man." A certain reserve characterizes his manner united with a natural dignity of bearing which gives some the im pression that he is cold and unsympa thetic. But those who are brought into more intimate relations with him find him to be the very opposite. In conversation he listens intently, shows a keen sense of humor, and tells a witty, clean, pat story in a manner that "brings down the house." Gen erous m his benevolences, he has al ways taken a hearty interest in the various charitable organizations of the city, and his popularity among the Roman Catholics, Hebrews and Prot estants alike attests to the breadth and genuineness of his sympathies. In religious and charitable activities he has had an earnest helper in Mrs. Harrison. For a number of years she was the teacher of the infant class in the Sunday-school. She takes a lead ing part in the missionary and social work of the ladies of the church, and is prominent in the management of the Indianapolis Orphan Asylum and other public benevolences. Those who would like to read what I see The Independent calls "a speech of remarkable power" will find in Gen eral Harrison's "Danville Address," printed in the Indianapolis Journal of November 28th, 1887, his views of the evils of the liquor traffic and his ring ing denunciations of any alliance be tween the Republican Party and the Liquor League. General Harrison is emphatically an Anti-Saloon Repub lican. In regard to the form in which the issue has joined here in Indiana his trumpet has given no uncertain sound. He has declared strongly for local option and increased restriction to the extent to which public senti ment can secure and maintain them. I will not presume to draw aside the veil that conceals the home life of General Harrison and his family; yet I feel free to say that it is a Christian American home, of the noblest type, where the affection that binds its members is purified and strengthened by faith in God, and where from the family altar that was erected more than a third of a century ago, there goes up each day the utterance of thanksgiving and confession and prayer to the Heavenly Father.

As our readers know, the Rev. T. De Witt Talmage, D. D., of Brooklyn, the most popular minister in the world, is away from Brooklyn enjoy ing a tour. This letter from his pen is dated July 13, and its subject is "Knocker vs. Door Bell." Here in this old fashioned country house instead of the door bell we have the knocker. I do not know that I would like its startling thump all the year round, but once in a while I like it. There is something thoroughly honest in the stroke of the old fash ioned knocker. The visitor lets it fall thrice, and then everybody in the house, from garret to cellar, knows that somebody wants to get in. But the knocker has been banished from all our city houses, and from many of the country houses, and the door bell substituted. No doubt there are hon est door bells which, are a blessing, but in our crowded thoroughfares they become unprincipled and a nui sance. When one is solitary or sad it is a relief to hear one of them jin gle. But to a busy life they become a pest, sometimes almost unendurable. When they call us to genial sociality, or to sympathy with the grief struck, or to a pastorial duty, they are to be honored; but they sometimes seem to be bent on making: a man crazy. We have often gone out through theflm, deliberate, old fashioned Chris- kitchen way while our reception room was full, and taken the railroad and gone fifty miles out of town to escape its perpetual assault nd battery. We have for the same purpose taken a steamer for Portland or Charleston. When we had a barn on our premises in the out skirt of the city we some times went there to escape the tintin nabulation. One of our anticipations of heaven is that there will be an ab sence of this nuisance. There it goss now ! And it has been going all day. First a printer's boy from a book pub lisher; then one of the same kind from a magazine, both of these chaps asking for more copy. Then came a woman whose husband is out of work, and wants'to know if we can get him employment. Poor souls! How we should like to help them! Then there came a committee wanting a lecture. Another committee wanting us to speak at an indignation meeting. To save time we deliver the indignation speech there and then, only two for an audience. Next a couple to be married; next, a boy with a shoe bill. Absurd! We have nearly worn them out, and do you expect us to pay for such an old pair of shoes as that? Next, a man who wants to lecture, and would pay us well if we would furnish him.a manuscript. Dearfellow. We are not in the brain biokerage bus iness. l latter and bang again at the door. This is a fierce man, whose child has been sick for three weeks, and is in furiate that we did not know it, and have not been around with pastoral condolence. By this time we are get ting excited, and the door bell sounds to us as loud as a gong. A lady is opening a boarding house, and she wants to know if we know any board- All 1 t 1 1 ers. At ner departure we iaice a long breath of relief and are about return ing to our study, when clatter goes the bell. A book agent! We see the it i ti mi i ominous bundle, and say: inanK you! Don't open it! Don't want to buy." But says he: "You need not buy. Only let me show it to you." "Thank you, we have no time to look at it." "It won't take more than a minute to look at it. All the other clergy have taken the book. You had better let me put down your name for a copy." "Thank you ; we have all the facts of that book in other vol umes." "But I want your name. It will help me very much with your congregation. By the way, would you give me a list of the more promi nent names of your church?" "No; we cannot give a list." "Well, sir, let me present you with a copy of this book, and then put your name on my subscription book." No, sir! Our putting our name down implies that we have purchased a copy, and that would be a falsehood." "Well, you certainly want to help in the distribu tion of good literature, do you not?" At this point we get unbalanced, and cry out: "Sir, we have been pestered to-day with a long procession of bores, but you are the biggest of the lot! Now, get out of this house." That was the first remark that made any salutary impression, and he went out of the room, not exactly shaking off the dust of his feet against us as witness, but leaving the mud of his clodhoppers on carpet and stairs. Then comes in a procession of people wanting money for churches, for asy lums, for engine houses, for the poor; others wanting letters of recommen dation or introduction; others want ing autographs; others wanting noth ing. You say: "Appoint certain hours when you must not be inter rupted." That plan works only im perfectly. There are persistent fel lows who will not be turned away. They persuade the door servant that it is a matter of life and death that we be seen. If their card be brought to us they are sure we will see them. They gesticulate so violently that the servant gets afraid. She has been on ly a little while in the family, and does not feel like being sacrificed even in defense of the peace of the house holder. Her courage fails and she timidly knocks at the pastor's door. After the urgent case is stated it is found out that the visitor has a new kind of cough mixture which he wanted to introduce into the family. Meantime when are you to prepare your Sabbath sermons and weekly lec ture ? If your sermons are poor these interlopers will be the first to set up a howl at the poor fodder. If you have newspaper connections or relations to some educational institution, what justice can you do them? Amid these disturbances we once so lost the order of the day that we dined twice, forget ting that we had been at the table be fore, the second time chiding our selves for poor appetite, which seemed to indicate declining health. There are two practical uses of writing all this. First, to persuade congregations not to be too sharp when their pastors have poor sermons. If you had one half the interruptions and bothera tions your minister has you would not preach any better than he does, and would be so confused you could not answer the questions in Brown's "Shorter Catechism" as to who made you and what you were made of. Furthermore, let those who sit in the quiet of the country home have their gratitude stirred by the fact that they live two miles from town and have on their house, instead of a restless, fid gety, impertinent, rickety door bell, a tian door knocker. But even that some time in the country seemed, especially in winter, to get sound asleep, and oh, then, what an evening you had for reading! Without touching either door knob or knocker, Charles Dickens stepped in from Gad's Hill; and Henry W. Longfellow, without touching the door, entered the sitting room, his hair white, as if he had walked through the snow with his hat off; and William H. Prescott, with his eye-sight restored, happened in from Mexico, a cactus in his buttonhole; and Audubon set a cage of his birds on the table Baltimore oriole, chaf finch, starling and boboiink doing their prettiest; and Christopher North thumped his gun down on the hall floor, and hung his sporting jacket on the hat rack, and shook the carpet brown with Highland leather. As Walter Scott came in his dog scam pered in after him, and put both paws up on the marble top table; and Min nie asked the old man why he did not part his hair better, instead of letting it hang all over his forehead, and he apologized for it by the fact he had been on a long tramp from Melrose abbey to Kenilworth Castle. But I think as thrilling an evening as you had any summer or winter was with a man who walked in with a prison jacket, his shoes moldy, and his cheek pallid for the want of the sunlight. He was so tired that he went immed iately to sleep. He would not take the sofa, saying he was not used to that, but he stretched himself on the floor and put his head on an ottoman. At first he snored dreadfully, and it was evident he had a horrid dream, but after a while he got easier and a smile came over his face, and he woke himself singing and shouting. I said: "What is the matter with you and what were you dreaming about?" "Well," he said, "the bad dream I had was about the City of Destruction, and the happy dream was about the Celestial City;" and we all knew him right away and shouted: "Glorious old John Bunyan! How is Chris tiana?" N. Y. Mall and Express. IN CASES OP SUDDEN ILLNESS. Some Rules Which Every Man Should Hare at Hand How Many Lives Can be Saved. "I see your paper recently suggested a number of handy antidotes in cases of poisoning by accident or otherwise," said a physician connected with the Health Board to a reporter for the Mail and Express this morning, "but there are other emergency cases just as important as poisonings. Take cases of drowning, sunstroke, suffocation by gas, hanging and others where the patient is found insensible. It seems to me one should know what ought to be done at such times as well as when poison is taken. A few simple direc tions in these cases might easily be printed, and in so small a space that a man could paste them in his bat." "What are they?" "I did not mean that you should call on me for them. The Health Board have already caused to be posted in various public places a list of rules to use in cases of drowning and sun stroke, because they are the most like ly to occur at this season of the year. However, to show you that I am in earnest, I will give you a few hints. Here they are: One of the most frequent things found in connection with cases re quiring immediate action is insensi bility. It is caused by injuries to, or diseases of the brain, blood-poisoning or poisoning by narcotics, and is often times mistaken, especially by the po lice, for drunkenness. In these cases note the position of the body. Place the body on the back, incline the head to one side, extend the legs and place arms at the side. Compare two sides of body. Note condition of the pulse, whether -strong or weak, and the state of the ribs and collar bones. Examine the head for wounds, bruises, swellings or depressions. Open the eyes and see if the eyeballs are sensi tive to the touch and if the pupils be come small when exposed to the light, whether they are large or small and of the same size. Observe whether the breathing is difficult or easy, the presence or absence of stertor and the odor of the breath. Drunkenness can be detected by odor of the breath. Insensibility is usually incomplete. Both sides of the body are equally helpless. There is no stertorous breathing. The pupils of the eyes are usually dilated and equal in size, and the eyeballs are sensitive to touch. For this trouble old water is the best remedy, and if you can get it a little hartshorn, whicb.-must be put to the patient's nostrils, and a few drops in water to drink. In apoplexy, the patient becomes suddenly insensible. The face is either flushed or very paJfe. The pupils of the eyes are fixed and dilated. The pulse is siow and labored, and stertor ous breathing is noticeable. Convul sions also occur. Is such cases place the body in a reclining position, and raise the head. Undo the clothing around the neck and apply cold water or ice to the head. Epilepsy differs from apoplexy in that the patient foams at the mouth, is only partially insensible, bites the tongue and the breathing and pulse are normal. Alt that can be done in these cases is to keep the patient from injuring himself. : Hemorrhage from the ear, month, nose or eyes indicates a fracture of base of skull. Treat these cases :.s those of apoplexy. Blows or falls on the head produce concussion of the brain and are detect ed by external braises, a confusion of ideas, sickness, fainting and stupor. In such cases place the patient on his back in a dark place, slightly raise his head and apply warmth to his extrem ities and surface of the body. Shock or collapse follows injuries to nervous system, fright, grief and lightning. The patient's breathing is very feeble, pulse almost impercepti ble, eyes dull, face pinched and pale. Apply warmth to the surface' of the body and extremities, give stimulants in small quantities, remove all tightly fitting clothing and aid the restoration of circulation after placing the patient in a horizontal position. Stupor, contracted pupils, progress ive insensibility indicate poisoning by narcotics. Prevalent for these cases is cold water to the head and chest. Give emetics, strong coffee and exercise. To restore the apparently drowned, place the patient face downward, be stride the body, grip the clothing over the shouldeis. If the body is naked thrust your finger into the armpits, clasping your thumbs over the shoul ders, raise the chest as high as you can without lifting the head from the ground and hold it long enough to count four. Then let the body rest on the ground, the forehead on the flexed arm, the neck straight, the mouth and nose free. Place your el bows just inside of your knees and your hands on the sides of the chest just over the lower ribs. Then press downwards and inward long enough to count two. Suddenly let go your grasp on the shoulders and raise the chest as before. Repeat these move ments alternately ten or fifteen times a minute until natural breathing be gins; then induce circulation and warmth by rubbing the extremities and covering the patient with dry blankets and clothing. Hot water, heated bricks or hot bottles at the pit of the stomach, armpits, soles of feet and inside the thighs will help matters along. Small quantities of wine, cof fee or warm water are of great use when his power of swallowing has re turned. Sleep should he encouraged, and mustard plasters to the chest and under the shoulders will relieve dis tressed breathing. You can always tell sunstroke or heatstroke, for one need not be exposed to the sun's rays to cause this malady. Being in a heated atmosphere is enough. As a rule these cases are preceded by headache, sickness at stomach and weakness of the knees. The face and head are hot, the pulse full but weak and 'the breathing slow and labored. The face is red and sometimes purple. Put the patient in a cool place, apply ice or ice water to his spine, head and the back of the neck.

After the cherry comes the apple. Yellow Transparent, Early Harvest and Astrachan Red yet head the list. All three are good cooking apples, and not to despise for eating out of hand when fully matured. If intended for shipping, especially to a distant mar- ket, they must be picked when hardly ripe. Otherwise they will become soft and unfit for sale. Careful sort ing is needed with all fruits to be put on the market, and of particular im portance with summer apples, if the grower expects a paying price. All inferior specimens should be kept at home. The codltn is quite fond of early ap ples, and it is always wise to pick up the wind-falls every day and feed them to hogs, sheep, cows or horses, or ctill better to have this work done by sheep or pigs confined in the or hoard. Look after and attend to the labels on young trees, if not already done. Rob off superfluous sprouts as fast as they appear. Cat the grass and leave it on the ground for a mulch. Thistles and weeds are no ornament to an orchard anymore than to a gar den, small fruit patch or grainfteld. On many farms the orchard serves as breeding place for all sorts of obnox ious weeds.

Cut them down before they mature their seeds. Then look up into the trees for the fall web-worm. Give no quarter, un less you spend it for kerosene or Bu- hach. Approach the enemy with a burning torch, or with a spjaying pump, throwing Kerosene emulsion, or a Buhach solution into each tent. Let the children eat nice ripe ap ples, ripe peaches (if you have them), and other tree fruits, to their hearts' content. Free indulgence, within their natural appetites, will not hurt them. But do not insult them with poor, inferior or half-decayed speci mens. Good fruit only is wholesome and fit to eat. Usernl Baking Powder Facta. The following hints may nrev.-nt some housekeeper from being imposed upon: If, when two samples of baking powder are tested by mixing with cold water, one of them boils up auickly, effervescing like sedlitz powder, and the other rises more slowly, foaming like yeast, and, perhaps, standing over the top of the glass, it is an evidence of the purity of the former and the adulteration of the latter. The dif ferent action of the second is caused by the addition of flour or lime, or both. Put a little flour in the other and mix it thoroughly, thej the water, and the sarnj duced, the actioj slow according j added.
