SYMPTOMS OF A DISEASED LIVER. Bad Breath; Pain in the Side, sometimes the Sain Is felt under the Shoulder-blade, mistaken for heumatUm; general lots of appetite; Bowels generally costive, sometimes alternating with las; the head Is troubled with pain, is dull and heavy, with considerable lots of memory, accompanied with a painful sensation of leaving undone something which ought to have been done; a slight, dry cough snd flushed face is sometimes an attendant, oftea mistaken for consumption; the patient complaint of weariness and debility; nervous, easily startled; feet cold or burning, sometimes a prickly sensation of the skin exists; spina are low and despondent, and, although satisfied that exercise would oe bene ficial, yet one can hardly summon up fortitude to try it In fact, distrusts every remedy. Several ol the above symptoms attend the disease, but cases have occurred when but few of them existed, yet examination after death has shown the Liver to have been extensively deranged. It should be used by all persona, old and young, whenever any of the above symptoms appear. Persons Traveling or Living In TJn healthy Localities, by taking a dose occasion ally to keep the Liver in healthy action, will avoid 11 Malaria, Bilious attacks. Dizziness, Nau sea, Drowsiness, Depression of Spirits, etc. It will invigorate like a glass of wine, but is no in toxicating beverage. If Tou have eaten anything hard ot digestion, or feel heavy after meals, or sleep less at night, take a dpse and you will be relieved. Time and Doctors' Bills will be saved by always keeping the Regulator in the House I For, whatever the ailment may be, a thoroughly safe purgative, alterative and tonic can never be out of place. The remedy is harmless and does not interfere with business or pleasure. IT IS PURELY VEGETABLE, And has all the power and efficacy of Calomel or Quinine, without any of the injurious after effects. A Governor's Testimony. Simmons Liver Regulator has been in use in my family for some time, and I am satisfied it is a valuable addition to the medical science. J. Gill Shortkr, Governor of Ala. Hon. Alexander H. Stephens, of Go., says : Have derived some benefit from the use of Simmons Liver Regulator, and wish to give it a further trial. The only Tiring that never falls to Relieve." f have used many remedies for Dys pepsia, Liver Affection and Debility, but never have found anything to benefit me to the extent Simmons Liver Regulator has. I sent from Min nesota to Georgia for it, and would send further for such a medicine, and would advise all who are sim ilarly affected to give it a trial as it scents the only thing that never fails to relieve. t P. M. Jannitt, Minneapolis, Minn. Dr. T. W. Mason saysi From actual ex perience in the use of Simmons Liver Regulator in my practice I have been and am satisfied to use and prescribe it as a purgative medicine.

Sr. Lorn, August 18, 1882. Editdb Fuse Pbess : The merchants of St Lnn's have been tiviutr special atten tion of Lite to the growing and important question of tm-ie and commercial relations with the Republic of Mexico. The railroads now bein2 built between Mexico and the United States, traversing the great state of Texas, have created vast aud rapid changes in tho commercial relations and intorests of the two countries, and in view of the above important events the representative busi ness men of this city have determined to es tablish an American and Mexican Commer cial Exchangs. Tho merchants here, togeth er with the Mexican consul at this place, have already taken active nk-ps in tho mat ter. This important movement will doubt less greatly promote and increase tho tr.ulo relations between Mexico and the Unit ed States, and particularly the great city of St. Louif. Many of otir citizens ore returning from thoir summer tours, and the dull city is b giaing to look livelier. Many rt-grtt having left the city and juan.lere 1 th:r money and time for nothing, as St. Louis the present rammer, hasbetn as cool and as ple.vtant a place as coal! bo found on the continent, and there has U-t-n no necessity for the cra zy rui.h to maimer resorU and watenng-j.U'-ck' The second tnnaa! met tir.g cf lie cx-oon-federate vwciatioa of MU-oari, was Ltld thie week at SeXtlia.

Carl Smyths Garfield Alicia i Romarsf. A correspondent of the New Orleans Tim Democrat writes : A strange story comes to me from the death-bed of the late President (larflold. It is to the effoct that while yet in his full senses, but convinced that be could not recover, he expressed nojk only re gret but deep contrition for the part which he had borne in depriving President Tilde u of tho office to which ho was elected in 1870. It will be remembered that Mr. Garfield was one of the "visiting statesmen" who.thrwt themselves into the canvass of the vote of inthatvear. brineing out "evi. donee" of "buldozing' in some of theru,. ral parishes, ana in particular tuai oi me tii colored woman whom Mr. Garfield examined, "not," he said, "as a judgo, but asalawyer." It is now related that, feeling that he could not recover, that his death must take in a few davs. ho talked with his at tendants about his public carer as well as t Al .IT.:M T la nr. 1 .1 ttnttkfMMtv I11H JIUrSUUIll OUIUIB. it in nmu, vu uu...j flint. T hnvA no reason to doubt that he ui.nwnl himself sincerelv nenitont for the part which he took in the great fraud cf 187(5. He regarded tnat as ine one greni utfiin nnnn his rmblic career, and he mode some reference to documents which he felt sure would serve to mitigate the Judg ment of posterity upon him. , He expressed tha rrrphnt. ftnnrehension that At no distant period au Avenging Nemesis would visit upon his party and friends a terribl j revenge for that wrong, inose wno usieuea to nii woro his perooual and political friends; they regarded tho words aud emotions of Garfield duo to the effoct of physical weak nfiKs nnd loner suHoriutf. and acreed to bo silaut regarding them.

" The Express has already noted tho arriv al in this city of Prof. J. C. Housenu, direc tor of the Brnssels observatory, who arrived on Wednesday direct from Belgium via Washington City, astronomy being the oo- ject of his mission. Most of our readers are not uuawtvro that ft very rare phenome non, of great importance to astronomical science, will take place nbontthe end of this year, it being tho transit of the plannt Vc-' nns Over the disk of the sun. So rarely, inr deed such a phenomenon occurs that the socond next one will not arrive before the year 2001. A more correct measurement of tliA rliutnnrn of the earth from the sun. and through it, of all distances in the solar sys tem, will depend upon rue observations made dnrins tho transit. Tho astronomers of all countries are preparing to set up tem porary observatories in tho ngion wherein the transit will bo visible. Sn Antonio Lis been seloctod for that purpose by the as tronomers of the national observatory a Washington, who will have, besides, three other stations in the United Slatoa and one in Chili. Our city has also been chosen for tho same object by the astronomers of Bel gium, who will act independently and ' Une their own instruments, which they are bring inz over w'.th them. Such is the object of the journey of Prof. Ilouzeau to ban Anto nio. Ho will soon be joined here by two of his assistants. Dr. A. Lancaster and E. Stuyvaert, both of tho staif of the ErusK,e', observatjry. Theso gentlemen wijl locate their observatory at some convenient place on the outskirts of the city, where a fine view towards the south can be obtuiued. As the transit occurs in December, they will bo, for more than four mouths, residents o,f our eitv. The above is from tho San Antonio Ex press, one or our cmzeuu suggest, m view of tho doublo delegation of scientific observ ers and that city, that one of them be invit ed to make their hvadipiarters at San Mar cos, rather than take their observations at precisely the same point The suggestion is a good one, and we should bo pleased to see it carried out.
