The Cerdinl Binlm of Syricuui ami Tonic Pill?. NERVOUS DEBILITY, However obscure the en ose may be which contribute to render nervous debility a dssonse so prevalent, afleeling, as it does, noarly one-half of our adult population, it is a melancholy fact that day bv day, and year by year, we witness a most frightful in crease of nervous aflcctions from the slight est neuralgia to the more grave and extreme form.? of ? NERVOUS PROSTRATION, Is characterized by a general languor or weakness of tho whole organism, especially of the nervous system, obstructing and pre venting the ordinary ' functions of nature; hence there is a disordered state of the secretions; constipation, scanty and high colored urine, with an excess of earthy or lime sediment, indicative of waste of brain and nerve substance, frequent palpitations of the 'heart, loss of memory and marked irresolution of purpose, and inability to carry ilito action any well-defined business enterprise, or to fix the mind upon any one thing at a time. There is great sensitive ness to impress, though retained but a short time, with a flickering and fluttering'condi tion of the mental faculties, rendering an individual what is commonly called a whiflle-mindcd or (licklc-mindcd man.

Murk Twain con tributes the follow ing to" Tom Hood's annual: The ouly merit I ehum for the fol lowing narrative is that it is a true story. It bus a moral on the cud of it, but I claim nothi ng on that, as it io merely thrown in 10 curry favor with the religious clement. After I hail reported a couple of years on the Virginia Uity (Nevada) Daily Enterprise they promoted mo to be editor-in-chief; ami 1 lasted just a week by the watch. 13tit 1 made an uncommonly lively newspaper while I did last, and when I retired I had a duel on my bauds and three horse whippings promised me. The latter I made no a! tempt to collect; however, this history concerns only the former. It was the old "(lush times" of the silver excitement, when the population was wonderfully wild and mixed; everybody Wehl armed to the. teeth, and all slights and insults had to bo atoned for with the best article of blood your system could furnish. In the courseI of my editing I made' trouble with a Mr; Loid, the editor of a rival paper. He flew lip about some little trifle or other that I said about him?1 d<> not remember ! now what it was. 1 suppose 1 culled him a thief, or a body-snutehcr, or an idot, or something like that; 1 was obliged to make tin; paper readable, and I couldn't fail in my duty to a whole Community of subscribers mere ly lu save the exaggerated sensitiveness of an individual. Mr. Lord was oliended, and replied vigorously in his paper. Vigorously means a great deal when it refers to a personal edi torial in a front tor newspaper. Duel ing was all the fashion among the upper classes its that country, anil a very few gentlemen vyoul I throw away an opportunity of lighting one. To kill one man in t> duel caused a man lo ho even more looked up to I ban to, kill two men in the ordinary way Will, out there if you abuse a man and that man did not like li; you .had lo call him out and kill him, other wise -ypu'> ayotijtl bp disgraced. So 1 challenged .Mr. Lord, und I did hope he would not accept; but I knew per fectly well that he did not want to light, ami so 1 challenged him in the most vi -lint ami imp arable manner And t Inn I sat clown und sou lied and snuffed iili the answer came. All the I hoys?-the editor.-?were in (he office "helping" mo iii the dismal business, and leliiii;! about duels and discussing the code with' a lot. of aged ruf Hans, who bad experience in such matters, ami altogether there was a loving interest taken in such matters that made me unspeakably uncomfortable. The answer came- r. Lord declin ed. Our hoys were furious, and so was I on the surface. 1 tent him another challenge, and another, and the more he did not waul to light the more blood-thirstier I became. I>ut at last, the man's tone began to change. He appeared to be waking up. It was'becoming appar ent that he was going to light me after all. 1 ought to have known how it would be?ho was a man who could never he depended upon. Our boys were jubilant. I was n t, though 1 tried hiird to bo. It was now lime to go out. and prac tice. It was the custom there to light duels with navy six-shooters at fifteen paces?load and empty till the game for the funeral was secure. Wc went lo a little ravine just out of town and hot rowed a barn door for a target? borrowed it fromngentleman who was absent?and wc stood this barn door up, ami .stood it mil on one cud against thu middle of it to represent Lord, and put a squash mi top of the rail to represent bis bead, lie was a very lull, lean creature, the poorest sort, of material for a ?Ittel; nothing but a line shot could letch him, au.t even then he might sp?l your bullet. Exaggeration aside, the rail was,of course, a little too thin to represent the body accurately, but the squash was all right. If I hero was any iii tellcetual difference between * the squash and his head, it was in favor ol Ihcstpish. Well, I practiced and practiced at the barn door and could not hit it; and 1 practiced tit the rail and could not hit that; und 1 tried for the squash and could not hii that. 1 would have been'entirely disheartened hut that occasionally I crippled pno of the buys, and that gave htc hope. At h<st wo begun to hoar pistol shots near by, in the next ravine. Wc knew what that meant! The other party was out practicing loo. Thon I wiis in the least degree distressed, for of course they would hear our shots and then send over the ridge, and the spies would find my bam door with out a wound or murk, and that would simply bo an end to mo; for of course the other man would immediately he 1 conic as blood-thirsty nsl was. Just r.t this moment a little bird not larger than a sparrow flew by and lit on a bush, about thirty paces away, nnd my little second, Steve Gilta, who was a dead shot with a pistol?much better than I wns?snatched out his revolver and shut the bird's head off! We all ran to pick up the game, nnd sure enough, just at ibis momentsomc of the other duelistscame roconnoitcr ing over the little ridge. They ran to our group to see what the matter was, nnd when they saw the bird, Lord's second said : "That was a splendid shot. How far oil'was it ?" Steve said, with some indifl'erence : "Qh, no great distance. About thirty paces.' "Thirty paces! Heavens alive! Who did it?" "My man?Twain." "The mischief ho did ! Can ho do it often ?" "Well, yes. ITc can do it about four times out of five." I kn w the little rascal was lying, but 1 never said anything. I never told him so. lie was not of a disposi tion to invite confidence of that kind, so 1 let the matter rest. But it was a comfort to see. those people look sick, and sec their jaws drop when Sieve made that statement. They went oil' and got Lord and took him home; when we got home, half an hour later, there was a note, saying that Mr. Lord peremptorily declined to fight. We f i?ud out afterward that Lord hit his mark thirteen times iu eighteen shots?if he had put those thirteen Indicts into mc it would have narrow ed my sphere of usefulness a good deal. True, they could have put pegs in the holes add used mc lor a hat rack; but what is a hat rack to n man who feels he has intellectual powers? I have written this true incident of my history for one purpose only?to ivarn the youth ol to-day against the practice of dueling, and to plead with them to war against it. I was young and foolish when I challenged the gentleman, und thought it very fine and grand to be a duelist and stand upon the "field of honor." But I am older and more experienced now, and am* inflexibly opposed to tha dreadful cu-tnm. I am gbid, indeed, to be enabled to lift, up my voice against it. I think it is a bad, immoral thing. It is every mail's duty to do all he can to discourage dueling. If a man were to challenge mo, I would go to that hum and lake him by tin- hand and lead him to a retired room ? ami kill him. She Wasted to Pnpposii?A timid young man was visiting a beautiful young w ?man on one of our streets the other evening, when, after a pause, she said, looking closely at him : "Now, I want to propose to you?" "You are very kind," said I lie diffi dent young man, between gasps and blushes, "but lam not worthy of such happincss? and, in fuel, none of our family are marrying people?besides, my income is limited?my 'differences' are on the wr?mg side?1 have to meet Mr. Smith, and I'm afraid I'll be hue." Then without waiting to put on his overcoat, he tried to make exit lb rough the door of a cupboard. "Why," said the young woman, lifting her eyebrows in surprise, "1 wauled you to accompany me to a friend's on Main street." "Ob, in that case," answered her swain, "if your head's level, and the boot is on the other foot, I shall only be too happy, but I was afi aid?that is almost, dared to hope?in fact, 1 am subject, to the seizures;'' nnd he sat down on the coal scuttle and said it was a very cold day?hadn't seen such weather since the -1th of July, Ax Irishman's Lootc.?An Irish man sold his farm, and moved all his personal property to one adjoining, which he had purchased. He claimed that stable manure was personal property and not real estate, and commenced moving the satfic?lawsuit ensued, and they declared agiinstbim. His final remark to the Judge, after the jury bad found a verdict against him. were as follows: "Mr. Judge, a horse nnd a cow are personal property ?" "Yes," answered the judge. "Mr. Judge, corn, oats, hay, etc., arc personal property "Yes," responded the judge. "Then," says Pat, "How in the devil can personal property cat per sonal property and produce real estate ?'' How he Became a Lawyer?A day or two ago, when a young man entered a Detroit lawyer's office to study law, tho Free Press says, the practitioner sat down beside him and said : "Now, sec here, I have no time to fool away, and if you don't pan out well I won't keep you here thirty days. Do you want to make a good lawyer?'' "Yes, sir." "Well, now listen. Be polite to old people, because they have cash. Be good to tho boys, because they are growing up to a cash basis. Work in with reporters and get pulls. Goto church lor the sake of example. Don't fool any time away on poetry, and don't even look at a girl until you can pliad a case. If yon can follow these instructions you will succeed. If you cannot, go nnd learn to boa doc tor and kill your best friend/' ?.yz^> ? ? - mnin ? For a straigtforward pica to the qucstior>-of "(Juilty, or not guilty?" commend us lo that Missouri chap, on trial for murder: "If your honor please, I am guilty, I killed the man because he took my gal from mc. .She was about the ouly thing I had an' I didn't want to live after she wcnt.au' 1 diden't want him to live neither. An' I should he much obliged to your honor if you would hang me as soon as possible." ?
