Small Pox Remedy.
The following small pcx remedy was

of the Stockton, (Cal.) Herald, who
says: "I herewith append a receipt
which bas been used to my knowledge
in hundreds of cases. It will prevent or
cure small pox though the pittings are
filled. It will cure scarlet fever. Here

The Popular Clothier
CHINESE etiquette forbids an actor to turn
his back to the Emperor. So he wears a
mask on the back of his head, and a costume with
two fronts. It is rediculous. But it is the only
way of compliance with an impossible demand.
You see the same, thing in trade. Everyone wants
fine coffee cheap, but everyone knows that fine coffee
isn't cheap. Chinese-like, some one offers coffee,
"just as good" as Chase & Sanborn's "Seal Brand"
for a less price. "Just as good" is only a Chinese
mask. Don't be humbugged!
