Hepatitis, or Liver Complaint,
DYSPEPSIA AND SICK HEADACIII.
S-mptoms of a Diseased Liver.
PAIN in the right side, under the edge
of the ribs, increases on pressure ;
sometimes the pain is in the left side ;
the patient israrelyabletolieon the left
side ; sometimes the pain is felt under
the shoulder-blade, and it frequently
extends to the top of the shoulder, and
is sometimes mistaken for a rheuma
tism in the arm. The stomach is affect
ed with loss of appetite and sickness ;
the bowels in general are costive,
sometimes alternative with lax ; the
head is troubled with pain, accompan
ied with a dull, heavy sensation in the
back part. There is generally a con
siderable loss of memory, accompan
ied with a painful sensation of having
left undone something which ought to
have been done. A slight, dry cough
is sometimes an attendant.The pa
tient complains of weariness and de
bility ; he is easily startled, his feet are
cold or burning, and he complains of a
prickly sensationof the skin ; his spir
its are low: and although he is satis
fied that exercise would be beneficial
to him, yet he can scarcely summon
tip fortitude enough to try it. In fact
he distrusts every remedy. Several o
the above symptoms attend the disease,
but cases have occurred where few of
them existed, yet examination of the
body,after death, has shown the liveii
to have been extensively deranged.

Dr. C. Mf Lane's Liver Pills, in

In all diseases affecting these oreans,
whether they secret too much or too little

peculiar interest. The indomitable in

The highlands of east Baton Rouge
commence at the Mississippi at Baton
Rouge, inn in a diagonal direction from
the river, and are loot in the flats border

A Ehort distance below the town the

considerable length. 3iany nnall

they prepared to reap a full harvest.
They soon began a slaughter,

enough to stock the market and make
hats lor a generation were bagged. The
methods resorted t for killing beavers
were very simple. They had made their
ledges on the margin of the swamp. The
hunter would dig with a spade over the
channel leading to the cell or lodge, and
drop a rope with a noose into the hole
thus made, thensending in a don to start
the game, he would noose it as it became
entangled in the rope. Many were
caught in traps.
Several sportsmen, armed with guns
and lances, and having a good pack of
bounds started lor a dav s hunt. "1 II
tell the tale as it was told to me." Soon
the busy pack are on a beaver trail. Tne
dams having previously been cut, the
water had leit all the dens high and dry,
and an occasional alligator hole deep dug
into the basin ot the morass, was the
only refuge for this "subtle pillage."
The huntsmen urge on the already too
eager pack. They overrun the trail, and
scattering far and wide in wild confus-
ion, the young hounds bounce a "cotton
tail," and in lull cry call off the young
and inexperienced hunters: but the old
sportsmen stand and list-en for the voice
ot some reliable veterans gone to test the
veracity of the babbling stragglers.
It is not long ere they return to the
spot where the trail had been lost, and
the tenacious eld hounds bang on the

The Foreign Trade Returns for Jan
uary and What They
A summary of the returns to the bu
reau of statistics of the foreign trade of
the United States for the month of Jan
uary is just published. The returns
ishow that the imports continue to fall
away and the exports to advance, as they
have done now for more than a year.
The imports of merchandise were $37,
056,000, against $42,099,000 for the
month of January, 1876. Specie - was
brought in to the amount of $2,139,307
against $759,293 a year ago, and the to
tal decrease of imports was $3,064,401.
The exports for January, mixed values,
were $68,302,756, against $57,912,424 for
for 1876 ; export of specie were $2,932,
629, against $2,352,624 ; and the total in
crease for the month was $11,000,237.
What is generally called the balance of
trade was, therefore, increased in our
favor to the extent of $14,063,638. We
have not as yet compared the items of
export and import, in which noticeable
changes have taken place. Previous to
doing so we invite our readers' attention
to some faets in connection with the
trade of 1876, which will not be. without
During the last calendar year, the im
ports of merchandise into the United
States fell off $76,376,000. Of this de
cline the largest single item was in wools
and manufactures of wool, of which we
took less $15 630,000 than the previous
year. The next largest item, being al
most the same in amount, was .coffee, of
which we took less by $15,012,000 than
in 1875. In silks the falling off was $9,
193,000. I flax and its manufactures it
was $1,755,000. In earthen and china
ware it was $2,922,000. In cotton,
bleached and unbleached, and in prints
and jeans, etc., it was $3,254,000. In
steel rails it was $1,140,000. In tin it
was $2,682,000. In flax-seed, $3,162,000,
In precious stones, $919,000. These arti-1
cles include those in which tbe decrease
was'the most considerableand in these it
amounted to $55 669,000, or about three- j
fourths of the whole. The significance
of the decline as above described is only
too plain. It shows not a lessened abili
ty to indulge in luxuries only,
as in the case of silks and
precious stones ; but an inability to com
mand some articles which, like coffee,
are comforts approximating to necessi
ties, and some which are nearly al
ways necessities, as woelen goods and
earthenware and crockery. In the case
of woolen goods, the foreign article was
partially replaced by home manufactures,
and this was true of cotton goods as well,
but in the items of steel rails, flax seed,
foreign wools and tin, which are raw ma
terials of American manufacture, the de
crease was due to a stagnation of Ameri
. If, now, we turn to our ex-ports, we
find that the total increase over the pre
vious year was $70,440,000. The most
important items of increase were as fol
lows: In Indian corn, $17,283,000; in
mineral oils, $18,423,000 ; in bacon and
hams, 15,703,000, and in lard, $4,365,
000 : in leaf tobocco, 13,636,000 ; in cop
per. $1,817,000; in uncolored cottons,
$2 410,000; in clover eeed, etc., $1,760,
00'; in beef, $1,304,000; iu butter, $1,
701,000; -in hops, $1,027,000, arid in
metal cartridges, $1,167,000. These
items account for an increase of $80,
603,000, which was offset by a falling off
j:a wheat, $2,153,000; in cotton, $6,481
000; in furs, $1,219,000; in hides,
893,000; in firearms, f 2,1 30,000, and in
tallow, $2,159,000. It will be seen that
with some important exceptions, the in
crease in our exports is in provisions or
in products in a low state of preparation,
and intended as the raw material of
other industries. The most remarkable
items of increase are in Indian corn, il
luminating oil, leaf tobacco and bacon,
hams and lard. These include all but a
few millions of the net increase in ex
ports. The items which show the fruit
of American industry carried beyond the
primary stages of manufacture are cait
ridges, uncolored cottons, illuminating
oils, bacon, hams and lard. These cover
something more than one-half of the net

continued Mr. Hodges. Arriving at that
conclusion, the men opened tho gate,

C aptain Starkweather then began climb

Miss Barton had clambered from the
shed to the wins, and thence in the aoex
of the roof ot tbe main building, where
she stood quietly leaning auainst the
chimney. Finally a ladder was procured
and young Thompson climbed to the
side of the roof, but, getting there,
found it so covered with snow and ice
that it was impossible for him to reach
the girl. hk down he came, and the
ladder was carried to the front of the
house, where it was put in position with
one end asrainst the roof peak. This
time captian Starkweather took off his
boots and climbed up. The eirl stood
quietly until he was within a few feet of
her, when she ran down toward the wing,
and sliding went from one roof to the
other ; thence she jumped back to the
grape arbor, and before auy of tha men
could get to her she jumped to the
ground, and, dashing through a back
gate, ran up High street. The chase
was continued .to the Crawford street
park, where she was captured. Then it
was found that she was completely

Japanese people are very superstitious,
and have innumerable t-igns and tokens
by which to regulate their conduct and
belief's. They never sweep the room of
a house immediately after ene of the in
mates has set out upon a journey this
would sweep out all the luck with him.
At a marriage ceremony neither bride
nor bridegroom wears any clothing of a
purple color, lest their marriage-tie be
soon loosed, as purple is the color most
liable to fade. They have some curious
ideas in regard to finger nails, which are
cut only at certain times. When a per
son losses a tooth, either artificially or at
the hands of a dentist Japanese "tooth
carpenter' or by forceps, or by acci
dent, in order that another may grow in
the empty socket, the tooth, if from the
upper jaw, is buried under the founda
tion of the house ; if Jfrom the lower
jaw, it is thrown upon the roof a house.
Of hundred of their superstitions, here
area few: If a woman steps over an
egg-shell she will go mad ; if over a ra
zor, it will become dull ; if ever a whet
stone, it will be broken. If a man should
set his hair on fire, he will go mad.
Children are told if they tell a lie an ont
or an imp called the (cnfu will pull out
their tongues. Many a Japanese urchin
has spoken the truth from fear of an oni
supposed to be standing by, ready to run
away with his tongue. No such watch
man seems to be set before the unruly
member of the scolding wife. Of these
" edged tools that grow sharper by con
stant use" there is a goodly number in
Japan. When a husband and wife are

A reporter ef the Commercial'had a
conversation with Mr. Walsh, of Hot
Springs, who wfs on his way back from
Washington, where he went to assist in
getting through the law to redeem the
springs. Mr. Walsh, who has been a
prominent citizen of " the springs" for
many years, was formerly of this city.
During the administration of Mayor
Hatch he was on the police force. He
is now practing law, and is also in the
real estate business. In the course of his
talk about the springs yesterday he said:
The original adventures three who, in
1832, settled there and laid squatter-
claim to "the lands were Hale, Gaines
and Hector. These men took in the
lauds immediately adjoining the springs,
and held possession. Anybody coming
after them, and proposing to settle there,
had to pay them tribute at the muzzle
ot the shot-gun. You've heard a great
deal about the troubles and complica
tions, and legislature and attempts at
legislation in congress and out of con
gress, and in the supreme court of the
United States, about this Hot Spring
reservation, that have kept back progress
The act of 1871 seemed to arrive at
something definite in the way of the col
lection of rents by the United States.
But this new act, which became a law
by President Grant's signature, in his
last day in office, settles everything on jl
definite and enduring basis. There are
2,640 acres in the Hot Spring reserva
tion. This includes the village, which
bas a population now of four thousand
persons. There is to be an appraisement
of this projierty embraced in this 2,640
acres, and every occupant must pay his
price, as appraised, to the general gov
ernment, and thus become absolute
owners. Uut the springs are to be re
served for the ue of all, subjected to the
management of a government officer,
A commission of three persons is to be
appointed to appraise the property claim-

who shall have the privilege of purchace
at the assessed price. Any claimant
failing to pay the assessed price shall
have the privilege of removing his im
provement. The commission shall fix
the amount of land to be purchased by
each claimant, after having properly
platted the ground for a suitable arrange
ment of streets and alleys. The lands
appraised and not taken by claimants
shall be sold at auction, at not less than
the appraised price. The springs will be
under the control of the department of
the interior, and all taxea for the ui-e of
the water shall go to that depart
ment, under the direction of a superin
tendent. All this means a new day for the Hot

While it is true that there is no
absolute cure ibr dipsomania or tbe dis
eased appetite for ardent spirits, save in
the dipsomaniac's strength to resist
temptation, there are valuable assistants
to his physical weaknesses in the form of
animal and vegetable stimulant, whicb
he should not despise in fighting the bat
tle against the insidious foe. All who
have been sufferers from the diseased pas
sion for liquor bear iestimenyjto the lact
that the craving for alcholic stimulants
is invariably preceded by a depression of
the nervous system that is actually in
supportable, accompanied almost invari
ably with distate for solid food. What a
man is to resort to at this period of his
ailment is a most important question.
Ammonia in small doses, taken every
thirty minutes, has been recommended ;
but ammonia is not nourishment, nor
will it restore the desire for food. It is
the testimony of many who have tried it
under the circumstances stated that ex
tract of beef, made palatable with celery
salt and a moderate quantity of black or
red pepper, will afford the required
stimulus, with no bad effects, and at the
same time aid in restoring the tone of
tbe stomach. 'Quassia, calisaya, and
iron should all be brought to assist in
toning up the system and aiding the
digestive and nervous functions, but for
diet nutriment, which will certainly he
at once digested and assimilated, there
is nothing to compare to the beef extract.
It is nothing but a solution of Liebig's

their youngest son, now in college, they
will sail for Europe in Mav. They ex
pect to be absent from the country at
least two years, and it is general Grant's
desire to travel as any other private

public demonstrations from the govern
ment authorities of the countries be will

Franklin Pierce during his tour abroad
after the expiration ot his presidential
term. Afttr a profusion of nublic at
tention he at last found refuge in a
secluded village in the Swiss mountain.,
where he enjoyed himself for about three
days before his identity was descovered.
Then the people turned out en inaxe, and
gave him so cordial a reception that he
was again forced to move along. Gen
eral Grant desires to avoid this.

Do Snake Catch Fish Z
A. W. Chase, of the United States
coast survey, describes, in a note to the
editor of the Popular Science Monthly,
a contest which he and a brother officer
witnessed in 1867 on the Purissima, a
small trout stream about twenty-Jour
miles south of San Francisco:
Wc had been fishing on the stream,
and came to a high bank which overlook
ed a transparent pool of water about ten
feet in diameter and four feet in depth.
This pool was lringed with willows, and
had ou one side a small gravel bank. The
trout at first sight was lying in mid
water", heading up stream. It was, ss
afterward ascertained, fully nine inches
in length a very desirable prize for an
angler. While studying bow to cast
our flies to secure .bim. a new novel fi.n
erman appeared, and quick was bis ac
tions that we suspended ou' own to wit
nen thera. Tbia enrmy of the trout
was a large water snake of the common
variety, stripeJ bl and yeUw. He
swam up the poe-1 on the surface until
over the trout, when he macte a dive,
and by a dexterous movement seized the
trout in such a manner that the jaws of
he make closed its siouth. The fight
then commenced. The trout had the
use of iU tail and fins, and onuld drsg
the snake from the surface; when near
the bottom, however, the snake made
use of its tail by winding it around every
stone or root that it cmnd roach. After
secuung this tml hold it could drag the
trdut toward thebank.but, on letting go,
the trout would have a new advantage.
The battle was continued for full twentv
minutes, when tbe snake managed to get
its tail out of the water and clasped
around the root of on of the wi lows
mentioned as overnangine tne poni. j lie
battle wasthen up.fortheHnake gradually
put coil after coil around tht, root, with
each one dragging the fish toward the
land. When half its body wa coiled it
unloosened its first hold and stretched
tae end ot its tail out in every direction.
and finding another root, made last and
now, using both, dragtred tie tr.ut out
on the gravel bank. ' It now had it under
control, and, uncoiling, the snake drag
ged the firth fully ten leet up on the
bank, and I suppose would have eorged
him. We killed the snake and replaced
the trout in the water, as we th night
that he deserved liberty. He was ap
parently unhurt, and io a fe w moments
darted off. . That the water snake of
California brooks will prey upon fhe
young of the trout, and also smaller arid
less active, fishes, I have noticed, but
never have seen an attack on a fish so
large oront more hotly contested.
INTO IHE STREET.
A Maal Nfry .fa O.rr Wealthy IVobdsb's
On the first floor ot the tenement
house No. 337 Kast Thirtieth street,
lives Mrs. Marie Cullen with four of her
children, the eldest sixteen the youngest
about four years old. She is now a hab
itual drunkard, and is likely to be
shortly turned int the street.
Her father was a proserous wine mer
chant in Ireland. lie died when she
was quite young, leaving his estate in
such a condition that his family got
nothing, and having no friuids who
would take care ot her, she came to
America and. tried to earn her living as
a seamstress. She was very pretty as
may be seen even now and she soon mar
ried a rich marbledenler, whose name she
now bears. They lived happily together for
some time, but fashionable dissipation
into which she plunged was too much
fiirher, aud she began to drink badly
after the birth of her firot child, now
dead. She nearly ruined her husband
by ,her recklessness, and when he died
a year ago he left her nothing but the
tenement house in which she now lives.
It is encumbered by a mortgage of $11,
0O0. and instead of paying her taxes and
the interest on the mortgage, die spent
everything for drink. She pawned her
children's clothing and her own until
all were half naked.
" Walk in, sir," said Mrs. Cullen to
the World reporter, who called on hex
yesterday. "There is our front parlor.
Step in. Thore's no carpet on it ; there
is no furniture in it; tbe windows are
dusty ; but it was different once.
I can't ask you to take a seat, because
there is none for you, but you are wel
come.'' Mrs. Cullen is forty years old, and
quite stout. She was drwed in a long
flowing wrapper, and wore a long scarf
about her neck. Her children came into
the room and listened as she spoke, her
son, a boy fourteen years old, frequently
interrupting her with such reraHrks as,
" Stah it, old womnn 1 Don't tell such
d d lies,"and "Shut up, yer lu-her I"
At this the smaller ones laughed out
right. One of them, a little boy about
five years old, had nothing on him but
a ragged shirt and a pair of drawers. A
pretty little girl, not more than two
years his senior, had scarcely more
than he, but she did have a new pair of

she; "Mother'Il put 'em in the pawn

years old who has had to leave ber. Her

mother kept him awake so much niuhts,
that he had to give it up. The mortgage
on the bouso was foreclosed yesterday,

How Many Pounds to the Ton.
The suit of Frederick Ilecht against
the Pbrrnix insurance company was
brought in the Buprcme court, New York,
recently, to recover on a policy of marine
insurance. The policy contained the fol-
lowing clause concerning the vessel in
which the insured goods were to be
shinped: "Warranted not to carry more
than her registered tonnage in marble,
lead, coal, or iron." Hie vessel iu which
the goods were shipped was registered
in this port at nine hundred and sixteen
tons. She carried a load of coal consist
ing of nine hundred and two tons, of
2,240 Kiunds each. This quantity would
make over 1,000 tons of 2.0(H) pounds
eaeh. The vessel was lost at sea. The
insurance company claimed that the
warranty in the policy related to loading
the vessel with tons of 2,000 pounds
eaeh. and the vessel being overloaded in
carrying more than 1,000 tons, they were
discharged from liability on the olicy.
The cae was tried before Judge Van
Brunt, and the plaintiff asked leave to
show a custom at this port of making
