Constipation.
IS called the “Father ot' Diseases,” be
cause there is no medium through
which disease so often attacks the sys
tem as bv the absorption ot poisonous
gases in the retention of decayed and
etl'ete matter in the stomach and bowels.
It is caused bv a Torpid Liver, not
enough bile being excreted from tlie
blood to preduce Nature's own cathart
ic, and is generally accompanied with
such results as
Loss of Appetite,
Sick Headache,
Had Hreatli, etc.
The treatment of Constipation does
not consist merely in unloading the
bowels. The medicine must not only
act as a purgative, but be a tonic as well
and not produce after its usegieater cos
tiveness. To secure a regular habit of
body without changing tha diet or dis
organizing the system.
» _
“My attention, alter suffering with
Constipation for two or three years, was
called to Simmons Liver Regulator, and
having tried almost everything else,
concluded to try it. 1 first took a wine
glassful and afterwards reduced the dose
to a teaspoonful, as per directions, after
each meal. I found that it had done me
so much good that I continued it until I
took two bottles. Since then I have not
experienced any difficulty. 1 keep it in

BLACK WOLF!
Or Black Leprosy, is a disease which is considered
incurable, but it has yielded to the curative prop
erties of Swivt's Srcrinc—now known all over
the world as S. S. S. Mrs. Bailey, of West Somer
ville, Mass., near Best on.was attacked several years
ao wit h this hideous black erupt ion, and was treat
by the best medical talent, who could only snv
that the disease was a specie* of LEPROSY
and consequently incurable. It is impossible to de
scribe her sufferings, ller body from the crown of
her head to the soles of her feet was a mass of de
cay, the flesh rotting off and leaving peat cavities,
dcr fingers festered and several i.ails dropped oil
U one time. Her limbs contracted by the fearful
ulceration, and lor years she did not leave her bed.
Her weight was reduced from 125 to CD lbs. Son.'
faint idea of her condition can be gleam d from
the fact that three pounds of Cosmoline or oint
ment were used per week in dressing her sores.
Finally the physicians acknowledged their defeat
by this Black Wolf, and commended the sufferer
to her all wise Creator.
Her husband hearing wonderful reports of Swift's

A WHITE HOUSE RECEPTION.
President Cleveland’s Lively Conversa
tion with People who Call on Him,
Philadelphia Press.
The range of conversation between
the President and those who shake
hands with him at crowded recep
tions is limited. I stood near the
other day and listened as they shook
hands and slid ont ,
First caller (looking up)—How
do you do, sir ?
President (cordially)—How’ do
you do, sir ?
Second Caller (looking down)—
Good morning, sir.
President (smiling)—Good morn
ing.
An so on to the
Fifth Caller (shaking hands and
laughing)—Helped to elect you and
going to do it again. (Exit.)
President—Thank 3’ou!
Sixth Caller (looking straight out
of the door)—Glad to see you, sir!
President—How do you do ?
And so on to the
Fifteenth Caller (a little boy in
frock, waddling on, seeing only the
Chief Executive feet and not notic
ing whose they are).
President (reaching for him)—
Here ! you little fellow. Here !
This way ! Give us a shake !
Little fellow is shaken and wad
dles on, solemnly wondering what it
is all about.
Sixteenth Caller (whispers in Ex
ecutive ear).
Presdient(with surprised and con
gratulatory look)—Ah, indeed!
Hope they are all well.
Response smothered by
Seventeenth Caller—How do you
do, sir?
President—How do you do, sir.
Tide sweeps on till it reaches
Twenty-seventh Caller (in loud
voice)—Mr. President, I was born
within two miles of your birthplace,
and only three years later, up on
Caldwell hill. Subdued giggle of
crowd.)
President—Ah, indeed ! I’d like
first rate to go up therefor a day or
two this summer.
Twenty-seventh Caller (resumes)
—Come on, fishing-.
lie is ingulfed in the tide and the
sentence dies unfinished, while the
President cordially shakes hands
with a party of three with umbrel
las. evidently from the rural dis
tricts.
Thirty-sixth Caller (lady shakes
bauds blithely)—That shake is for
Mrs Cleveland. Gin her my love.
President—Thank .yon.
T h i r t y-soventh Caller—Good
evening, sir.
President (automatically)—Good
morning.
Alout one in a thousand is known
to the President, but, on the whole,
it is a dreary ceremony to him and
entered into with a real sensible
earnestness and a sort of conta
gious geniality.
POPE LEO’S INCOME.
The Enormous Income of the Head of
the Catholic Church.
London Queen.
A foreign diplomatist accredited
to Rome gives the following account
of the Pope’s revenue and of the
way in which it is spent. It is de
rived trotn three sources:—1. The
interest of an enormous sum left by
Pio Nono to the pontifical treasury,
aud invested iu the English public
funds. The interest amounts to
about three millions of lire, or about
£1 *25,000. Leo XIILis a great spec
ulator, and subscribes to the Italian
loans iu order to sell when the value
rises and invest the profits iu the
English Consolidated Fund. 2.
The proceeds of Peter’s Pence. This
branch of the revenue has suffered
greatly in recent years, but, never- '
theless, the average amounts to
about two millions of lire, or about
£83,000. These two sums, which
represent £208,000 per anuum, con
stitute the ordinary income of His
Holiness. It is distributed by the
chatnberlaiu anftmg the cardinals
residing in Rome—about £1,050
per annum for each cardinal—
among the prelates at the papal
Court, the secretaries, the nuncios,
the guards of the Pontiff's body,
<kc. 3. The extraordinary part of
the papal revenue is derived from
the receipts of the Apostolic Chan
cery. The items include the sums
received for titles of nobility papal
decorations, benedictions in the ar
ticle of death, privileges of the al
tar, private chapels, dispensations,
ecclesiastical titles, and many other
things. This department yields
about two and a half millions of lire,
or £104,000 per annum. The whole
annual income of Leo XIII., there- i
fore, reaches the enormous sum of1
about £300,000.

That the origin of color blindness
lies in the brain and not in the eye
has been suggested by Prof. Ram
say. While engaged in teaching in
Brooklyn some years ago the Prin
cipal of a school insisted in treating
every case of the sort as dependent
on the will of the pupil. His reme
dy was the rod. This certainly
seemed a tyrannical and unwarrant
ed treatment, but the result was fa
vorable to his theory. At first sight
it is not perfectly clear why it is
that color blindness should be more
common among men than among
women; yet it is possible that this
will be found to bear out the sug- j
gestion, for with* the discontinuance
ot the wearing of colors by the men
their interest in colors to a large ex- '
tent must have ceased, and it may
be that with the less use of color by
women in their dresses an increase
of color blindness might result
among them as well. It is doubt
ful, however, whether the introduct
ion of the rod as a quick corrective
will find many advocates.—Science.
A SOUTHERN SOLDIER S MANY
WOUNDS.
Atlanta Constitution Jan. 23.
A very remarkable application
for allowance under the wouuded
soldier act has been sent to the Ex
ecutive Department. The applicant
is Mr. S. A. Gade of Richmond co.,
who, during the. war, was a private
in Company E, Cobb’s Legion. The
man was literally shot to pieces, and
has lived through all these years,
and now applies for a pension. Here
is an inventory of his wounds: A
Minie ball entered bis right leg,
cutting the sciatic nerve and paral
yzing the limb below the knee. A
fragment of a shell struck him on
the right arm, near the elbow, brak
ing the bone and destroying the
joint. A Minie ball entered the
muscles of the right arm, tearing
them apart. A fragment of shell
hit him on the left leg below the
knee, crushing the small bone and
scaling off several parts of the main
bone three inches in length. A Min
ie ball passed entirely through the
left leg below the knee. Another
Minie ball passed through the cen
tre of the left hand, shattering the
bones and breaking the joint of the
middle finger, entirely disabling the
hand. Besides all this he was
struck in the right side with two
fragments from a shell, making two
distinct wounds. The application
has not yet been passed. When
it shall be the probability is that
Mr. Gade will get several pensions
for limbs rendered substantially
useless. This variously wounded
man is in fair health, and seems to
enjoy life.

ECONOMY.
San Francisco Chronicle.
I doubt if there is any kind of
emotion that can drown the deep
seated passion for economy in some
people. Economy is a thing that
has been mistaken for every virtue
in its turn. Economy is the only
vice of most millionaires, the only
virtue of most poor men. Human
nature is a queer thing any way. It j
was at a watering place in Europe,
and a terrible tire had occurred
where many lives were lost. Among
the lost was a young and pretty ,
lady, whose identity was established
by a letter from her sweetheart,found
in her pocket. There happeued to
be in the place a gentleman who
knew the sweetheart, and the duty
fell upon him of notifying liim of
the sad event. He wrote in as deli*
cate a way as possible, and sent, of
course, his condolences. By return
post he received a letter. It was
wild, incoherent, full of heart-break
ing ejaculations:
“My dear friend, I am mad with
grief. I cannot realize the terrible
news. Do, dear friend, do all that
I would do. Cover her grave with
flowers, put over it as expressive a
marble monument as you can get it;
spare no effort, dear boy, to show
what I feel. There is nothing too
beautiful, too good for her. Your
heart-broken friend.
“P. S.—Don’t spend over fifty
francs.'’
Mercy is so good a servant that
it will never allow its master to die
a beggar. The virtues that lie in
Warner’s I-iog Cabin Plasters are as
beneficient and lasting as the quali
ties of mercy. Best and cheapest

PROPER TEMPERATURE FOR
A BEDROOM.
X. Y. Herald
A correspondent asks ns to state
the correct temperature for a sleep
ing apartment. It is important, in
this connection, to remember that
cold predisposes to sleep, as is
strikingly illustrated in hibernating
animals. Nature, therefore, forbids
sleeping in a hot bedroom, provid
ed the bed clothing suffices to pre
vent the body from being chilled.
One of the highest authorities on
| hygiene—De Cbaumont—fixes the
proper temperature for a sitting
room at “60 degrees to 65 degrees,”
1 lor a study or work room at “CO de
grees,” but “a sleeping room,” he
says, “need never be above 60 de
grees, often with advantage below
it." It is questionable, however,
whether, as a rule, for persons in
health, 50 degrees Fahrenhit would
not be better than any higher tem
perature in a bedroom. If in our
climate and at this season people
would limit the warmth of their
sleeping apartments to this degree
there would be much less suffering
from rheumatism and pneumonia.
SADDLE HORSES.
The ewe-necked horse is particu
larly unfit for the saddle. Such an
imals, although generally active, are
weakly. Other parts of their bod
ies ate generally narrow and mis
shapen which detracts, of course,
from their bottom. A good judge
can tell at a glance whether or not
a horse be purelj’ or well bred. The
thoroughbred has a straight croup,
fine legs, is broad between the eyes,
with ears sensitive, small and point
ed. The low-bred animal has slop
ing quarters into which the tail is
set, large floppy ears, and some
times a moustache. Much of value
regarding the horse can be learned
from bis eye. That of a well-bred
animal is open and alert; that of
the low-bred dull and half closed.
Much of the white showing denotes
timidity and sometimes vice. The
better his breeding the better is
liKely to be bis action, although
some thoroughbreds are deficient in
this respect. In selecting horses
for the saddle, those with hoofs
pointing inward should be rejected,
as should those that have them
turned them out. When the frame
work is properly constructed the
hoofs point straight to the front.
Such horses seldom interfere or
overreach and generally have good
action. The horse’s action is gov
erned bj’ his formation, and hence
too much care cannot be bestowed
upon his general make-up. The an
imal with a deep ehest combined
with high withers possesses ns a
neeessnrj’ adjunct a slanting shoul
der. This conformation when ac
companied b\’ an arched crest and a
head well set on makes a model cav
alry horse, granting, of course, that
he is sound and not ruined in tho
training.
In 1806 when the horses for tin*
Tenth United States Cavalry were
purchased at Fort Leavenworth the
price paid by the Government was
$160 a head. The animals were
purchased from droves after passing
inspection by a board appointed for
that purpose. It is safe to say that
seldom, if ever, has a cavalry regi
ment of the United States been bet
ter mounted. Many of the animals
then purchase would have sold read
ily in New York for $500 each, and
few, if any, were not worth the price
paid the Government. Much of
the usefulness of the troop horse
depends upon the trooper who
rides him. Every cavalryman
should be taught something of “the
nomenclature of his beast.” Why
should no( n Tnnn the mounted
service know as much about the an
imal’s construction that lie rides as
the artilleryman knows of his weap
ons ? Instead of wasting time over
studies which do not pertain to his
arm of the service, instruct lho
trooper in pharmacy, in veterinary
surgery, in shoeing, and in the se
cret lore of the knowing horseman.
Remounts will then be less frequent
ly required, and when they are they
will be better/
EVIL OF CHEWING CLOVES.
Chicago Journal.
When I smell cloves on a man's
breath my first thought is, ’‘That
man is a fool.” He thinks he is
concealing the smell of whiskey or
some other vile smell and lie is only
advertising it There is an other
reason also why he is a fool. The
oil ot cloves, which is expressed
from them by chewing them, is an
active solvent of the enamel of tlx;
teeth, Any one who chews cloves
will soon notice that it makes the
teeth tender. That - means that
their enamel is disuppearing und
the next step is a mouthful of de
cayed teeth, which all the odors of
Araby the blest can never sweeten.
When will people learn that the
swnetest and rarest smell of all is
