One was the unmeasurable op

portunity a man may have he must labor
for success and be the architect of his own
fortune. Moreover, he said this statue
would teach that men must be rwady to do

the cunning isx-nbar to those who hnbitn-

had forgotten thnt the presence of the
empty cab outside lietrajed his transgres

I did not care for the cab now; I wa

it was snowing like mad), that a magi

defiance. I Ixlievc that the Uritish school
boy is allowed to have less reverence in
his constitution than any Zulu kafllr, yet
it will hardly lie credited that, through
out that painful search for the ollicer of
the law, John was half in hj -tones, ami
quoting that n-t offensive
observation of the innkeecr's (in which I
confess I could ss? no sort of humor).
'You've got 'Ighlmry Hani written upon

It seems to me a pity tlit a magistrate i
cannot commit a person for contempt of j
court unless he catches him in court, for a '
little discipline would have done John'
good. However, I do not wish to dwell
upon any personal matter. At the end of
the next street we found a policeman.

said, "and in custody? That's what gen

I was so speechless with indignation
that I was obliged to get the iioliceniau to

"This here gentleman, landlord, is a

GREAT RUSH FOR BARGAINS !
The great rush I have for my popular line of Overcoats at $8.00, $10.00, $12.00, and $15.00 is unprece
dented. I have made every effort to keep the supply up, but as the manufacturers have stopped work on
winter goods, my present supply will soon be exhausted. I advise all who want a genuine bargain in

It is a mistake to supjiose that the Ihjx-
ing glove is less injurious to the iiersoii
with whom it comes in contact than the
liare list is. The llt cuts, but the glove
stuns like a sand club or a piece of lead
pijie, ami is more apt to produce conges
tion of the brain and other internal in
juries. Xo prizefighter was ever hurt bv
letting him lilted, mid on (he other hand
lie may be seriously Injured by the mufiled
blow-that produces the jar without break
ing the skin Moreover, these glove con
tests have brought hi the fashion of
matching second or third rate men against
first rate ones, the Kts being made- on the
pit-thin as to ibe number of lounds dur
ing which the former can contrive to hold
out against the latter. What earthly
seuse or profit can there be in such a per
formance as that?
Of course the lioxing glove has its nse,
like the button on the foil; it enables the
pupils to learn the rudiments of the
science how- to assume the proper posi
tions, and how to use his arms. Gentle
men who move in polite society cannot af
ford to go about with fares scarred, seamed
and discolored; it is not the fashion, and
fashion must be considered. But I would

shape of an "exhibition," whether ama

The Reason Why
Ayer's Fills are so popular Is, that
while always reliable as a cathartic
medicine, they never leave any 111
effects. This is because they are purely
vegetable, and entirely free from calo
mel or any other dangerous drug. In
ail cases, therefore, whether the patient
be old or young, they may be confi
In the Southern and Western States,
where derangements ot the liver are so
general, Ayer's Pills have proved an in
estimable blessing. D. W. Baine, New
Berne, X. C, writes :
" I suffered a long time with stomach
and liver troubles. I tried various rem
edies, but received no benefit until I
commenced taking Ayer's Pills. These
pills benefited me at once. I took them
regularly for a few months, and my
health was completely restored."
Throughout Xew England, next to
lung diseases, Stomach, and Bowel
Complaints are the most prevalent.
and Constipation are almost universal.
Mr. Gaiiacher, a practical chemist, of
Koxbury, Mass., who was long troubled
with Dyspepsia, writes :
"A friend induced me to try Ayer's
Pills, and, after taking one box without
much lienefit, I was disposed to quit
them; but he urged perseverance, and,
before I had finished the second box, I
began 10 experience relief. I continued
taking them, at intervals, until I had
used eleven boxes. Suffice it to say,
that I am now a well man, and grateful
to your chemistry, which outstrips
The head and stomach are always in
sympathy ; bence the cause of most of
those distressing btadawhes, to which
so many, especially women, are subject.
Mrs. Harriet A. Marble, of Poughkeep
sie. X. Y., writes that for years she was
a martyr to headache, and never found
anything to give her more than tern-porarj-
relief, until she began taking
Ayer's Pills, since which she has been
