McLANE'S CELEBRATED LIVER PILLS, FOR THE CURE OF Hepatitis, or Liver Complaint, pTSrZfSlA AKD SICK HKADACHK. Symptoms of a Diseased Liver. PAIN in the right side, under the edge of the ribs, increases on pres sure; sometimes the pain is in the left side; the patient is rarely able to lie on the left side ; sometimes the pain is felt under the shoulder blade, and it frequentlj extends to the top of the shoulder, and is sometimes mistaken for rheumatism in the arm. The stomach is affected with loss of appe tite and sickness; the bowels in gen eral are costive, sometimes alternative with lax; the head is troubled with pain, accompanied with a dull, heavy sensation in the back part. There is generally a considerable loss of mem. pry, accompanied with a painful sen sation of having left undone some thing which ought to have been done. A slight, dry cough is sometimes an attendant The patient complains of weariness and debility; he is easily startled, his feet are cold or burning, and he complains of a prickly sensa tion of the skin ; his spirits are low; and although he is satisfied that exer cise would be beneficial to him, yet he can scarcely summon np fortitude enough to try it In fact, he distrusts every remedy. Several of the above symptoms attend the disease, but cases have occurred where few of them ex isted, yet examination of the body, after death, has shown the liver to have been extensively deranged. AGUE AND FEVER. Dr. C McLane's Liver Pills, in cases of Ague and Fever, when taken with Quinine, are productive of the most happy results. No better cathartic can be used, preparatory to, or after taking Quinine. We would advise all who. are afflicted with this disease to give them a fair trial. For all bilious derangements, and as a simple purgative, they are unequaled. BEWARE of imitations. . The genuine are never sugar coated.

BoyuncUhe-counter : Don't use tobacco. " The niillancholly davs have come, the saw-dust of the year' as the lumber mill man remarked. Most articles fluctuate in value; but it has generally been observed that pen, ink, and paper are always lUUionery.- " I do not wish your assertions to pass for truth, madam.' "You can easily pre vent it, sir, by repeating them yourself." Those men talk most who are in the ereatest mental darkness; frogs cease their croaking when a light U brought to the water-side. An Illinois editor says that his party is on the verge of a precipice, but calls loudly upon it to march steadily ahead. He is a bad leader. . A short time ago, a man became so completely " wrapped in thought," that he was tied up, labelled, and sent off on the "train of ideas." ' That was a smart youngster, who, hear ing his mother remark that she was fond of music, exclaimed, " Then why don't you buy me a drum?'' " Darling, Kiss My Eyelids Down," is the latest voonshine song, and he kisse? them down and up and crosswise and all around, and then settles on her mouth as a steady thing. "I say, Jim," said one friend to another, on meeting, "I hear our friend A has been in speculation heavily. Has he made anything?" "Yes," said Jim, "he made an assignment" The publisher of a neighboring pper Srints in each issue a chapter of the ible, and, "upon being ridiculed for it by his cotem poraries, remarks editorially: "We publish nothing but what is news to our readers." An "Out West" editor who has been threatened with, fourteen libel suits has hit upon an ingenious plan. As soon as he writes up his paper he seta one of bis reporters to work manifolding apologies, and places one in each subscriber's paper. The Paris Figaro discusses the question as to whether men should offer the right or the left arm to ladies at balls and dinner-parties. It decides in favor of the right, at least when offered by mar ried men, and considers that the left, being nearest the heart, should be given only to their wives. They were contributing towards a fund for the exiinguinlinient- of the church debt the other evening at a meet ing of a West Newark congregation. "I'll contribute .20," said one brother. "I'll go $30 better, and make it $50," said another brother. And then the first con tributor, in ' the excitement of the moment, said : "I'll call you ; what have you got?' MrJohn Wanamaker, of Philadelphia, whose fame as a shrewd business man is almost national, saya in a letter to the Timet of that city, that business that cannot be- advertised in some way is hardly worth following.'? He prefers legitimate newspaper advertising to any other kind, and evidently knows what he is talking about - ' '' 1 " "Pull out, Bill!" shrieked an engi neer's son tQ one of his playmates, a brakeman's boy, who was In imminent danger of getting smashed by his moth er, who was coining after him, "Get on the main line and give her steam! Here comes the switch engine 1" But before the juvenile could get in motion, she had him by the ear, and he was laid np with a hot box. . ... . - i .. A Dutchman, the other day, reading an account of a meeting, came to the words, "the meeting then dissolved." He could not define the meaning of the latter, so he referred to his dictionary, and felt satisfied. 1 In a few minutes a friend came in, when Honty said, "Dey must have werry hot wedder dere in New York. I ret an agonnt of a meet ing vere all de peoples had m-jlted away." Timid travelers can avoid all dan ger by leaving the train, at the station preceding the place where the accident is to happen. Conductors who feel for humanity, cannot do a better service to mankind than to have the above hint printed on their checks. When I think how many valuable lives might have been saved, if the direction given in the above hint had been followed, oh! how had I feel! The discovery of the liquefaction of all gases was made as early as 1823 by Mr. Perkins, who in a brief notiee in Thompson's "Annals of Philosophy" of that year, and in a more elaborate paper, intended to be read before the Royal so ciety, and published in "The Philosoph ical Transactions" of 1826, distinctly claims that he had effected the liquefac tion of atmospheric air and other gases. The apparatus he employed was much like that used by MM. Pictet and Cail etet An old darkey who was asked if in his experience prayer was ever answered, replied, "Well, sah, some pra'rs is ansud and some isn't 'pends on what you axes fo', Jest arter dewah,w'en it was mighty hard scratchin fo' de cullud breddren.

Barber collects further evidence- of the solar worship in North America, gumming up, he finds vestiges of that form of fetiohism in the ruins of Toltec and Aztec temples and pyramids, and in the statues which were placed within them ; in the traditions and ob servances of the semi-civilized tribes at the present day ; in the hieroglyphics and symbols of most of the tribes an cient and modern ; in the positions of ruined stone-houses, and in th orienta tion of the dead in graves. "Are the children safe?" Quite safe, we assure you. They are up in the gar ret playing hotel fire. Jimmie is the clerk, and is trying to slide down the water pipe to the ground. Willie is a guest, hanging to the window sill and waiting for the flames to reach his hands before be tries to jump to the shed roof, two stories below, and Tom is a heroic fireman, and has tied his fish-line around the baby's body, and is letting it down to the ground. Oh, yes, the children are all right ; just finish your call and don't fret about the children. It is not gold po poods, that makes ian really ' wealthy. The best wealth is of the heart, an enlightened mind, a loyal conscience, pure affections. He is wealthiest who has the largest stock of wisdom, virtue and love, whose heart beats with warm sympathies for his fellow man who finds good in all sea sons, all providences, all men. The gen erous man who pities the unfortunate ; tha poor man who orders well his life ; the loving man who clings clasejy to his family and friends; the studious man who seeks instruction in all things, are the truly wealthy men. With blanched cheeks and welled eyes all Christendom yearns to learn the number of apples Adam and Eve ate in the Garden of Eden, and tremblingly awaits the korrect responsive kry. Two correspondents volunteer solution, One thinks that instead of Eve 8 and Adam 8, alio, total 10, that fcve 8-lse, and Adam 8-1.9U, total 20: the other correspondent writes i ''I calculate, that possibly Adam and Eve together ate 90 apples, thuB: Adam ate (8) and Eve ate too (82). Who makes it merer We do. kist, Adam ate one (81) and Eve ate one too (813), total 893, Good-bye for this is about as many apples aa any ear. den can raise. Fashion Notes. Every season inaugurates its peonliar ities and oddities in fashions, and 1878 is not behind its predecessors. To look at the new flowers one would fancy they had been wilted by an untimely frost. Such withered roses, sad colored, droop ing dairies, hyacinths and pale buff but lercnps are anything but suggestive of the brightness of spring, though they may be of hard times and a depressed money market. We can see neither true art or taste in thus caricaturing nature. Grey daisies and Drown roses are neither true to the great Artist who gave them their hues, or beautiful upon the bonnet of a lady. Yet, because the "Havana shades" are a la mode they will be worn. So also will be adopted the bold style of trimming, flaming rosettes, ponderous bows and jet beads to simulate nail heads. In dress goods nothing exceeds the popularity of the bourette; and grey, brown and black are the favorite shades. The Princess and Sylphiae polonaise are still the most worn the trimming bands and fringes though knife plaitings and buttons in profusion,, as well as buckles, are much used. Bell-top para sols have superceded all other styles; the edges garnished with deep scollops, alternating with ribbon loops some times with contrasting colors. Fringe is also employed in ornamentation. The bandies are of Japanese designs of ebony, mounted with numerous rings of ivory. A dress of myrtle green bourettes, trim med with ribbon of lighter shade, is among those on exhibition ; the bottom of the Princess polonaise edged with tas seled fringe, and the ribbon ussd in drap ing and as bracelet bands at the wnst Grey and brown are considered a pret ty combination in the new suits. Fichues of crepe tine are edged with lace and fastened with a knot of flowers or large bow of ribbon. The Gainsborough and the Fra Diatola are probably the most popular of round hats; the corners of the latter being pointed and turned up on the side. Satin and watered ribbons are used to trim together with jet, feathers and flowers, according to the taste of the wearer. The Human Brain. The average weight of the human brain is between forty and fifty ounces; and it is, therefore, larger and heavier than than that of any animal, with two ex ceptions that of a large whale, which has been found to weigh five pounds; and that of the elephant, ranging from eight to ten pounds. The brain of a full grown gorilla weighs about fifteen ounces. As a general rule, the more intelligent animals have larger brains, in proportion to their weight of body, and in this the dog shows his superiority to the cow, and man to the elephant and whale. This rule has its exceptions, however since in many birds the brain is larger, in pro portion to the body, than in man; and the body of the little "ouistiti," or mar moset monkey of South America, is only twenty times as heavy as its brain. In "a comparison of the male with the female brain it was found that the average weight of two hundred and seventy-eight male European brains was forty-nine and one-half ounces, while that of one hundred and nineteen female brains was forty-four. This order is, however, re versed, if the ratio of brain to body be the standard ; for in eighty-one male brains, the ratio was found to be as 1 to 36.50, while in eighty-two female brains it was as 1 to 36.4a Carefully prepared tables indicate that in both sexes the brain increases rapidly up to the age of about seven years, then less rapidly to fourteen years, and afterward more slow ly to the twentieth year, near which date it attains its greatest weight After the age of fifty, the brain seems to lose about an ounce for each decade. The average weight of the brain with one thousand intelligent persons, exceeds that of an equal number of ignorant ones ; but ob servation proves that a large brain may often coexist with a slight degree of in telligence, while, on the other hand, a very high degree of intellectual power and general culture may characterize in dividuals whose brains are below the average. Hence it appears that neither absolute nor relative size of the whole brain is a sufficient test of mental power, either in animals or human beings. The Merchant's Exchange. ' Some years ago, an old merchant, liv ing at Frankfort-on-the-Maine, sent a large consignment of cotton stockings to a business correspondent at Frankfort-on-the-Oder, and at the same time, to another correspondent at the same place, an equally large consignment of cotton night-caps, the product of his own man ufacture. He wrote to each the price at which they were to Fell ; but the sum designated was found to be too large, of which fact they took occasion to inform him. He yielded a little in his demand, but still there was no offer for his fabrics. Again he writes, in reply to other letters of his correspondents, naming a yet smaller amount; but weeks elapse, and yet no sales. At length he writes to each correspondent to make tome dispo sition of his manufactures: if they cant get money for them, at least to exchange them, no matter at what reasonable sac rifice, for any other goods. Under these instructions, the stocking factor calls upon the night-cap agent both unknown to each other in connection with their principal, and names his views. He wishes to exchange a lot of superior cotton stockings for some other goods; he is not particular what kind, as the transaction is for a friend. The man at first can think of nothing which he would like to exchange for so large a supply of stockings ; but at length a bright thought strikes him. "I have." said he, "a consignment of cotton night-caps from an old correspon dent, which I shall not object to ex change for your stockings." The bargain was soon closed. The stocking factor wrote back at once that he had at length,been enabled to comply with the instructions of his principal. He had exchanged his stockings for a "superior article of night-cap," in an equal quantity, which he was assured were likely to be much in demand before a great while. The next day came a letter from the night-cap agent, announcing his supeess, and appended to the letter was a long bill for commissions! As Yellowplush would say, "Fanzy that gent's feelinksl" Grumbling. What a luxury it must be, to some people, to grumble I Rob them of that luxury, and life seems barely endurable. You might as well deprive them of the noonday sun. You might as well oblit erate from sight the green and velvety coat of Nature. They muM grumble. GrumhHng is a constitutional necessity with them. It is a part, and an impor tant part, of their organization. They grumble as naturally and as inevitably as they eat and drink. Indeed, they might, perforce, dispense for a time with those interesting table performances; but total abstinence from grumbling, to a regular grummer, is jusi as impuBsiuie tie iotal abstinence from water to a fish. And, goodness Knows i me iuriusnes sufficient material for fault-finding. The least querulous find it difficult, at all times to be amiable amid the perverse ness of events, and the counter-currents of all little things that should moye on in unity and harmoniously. Amid such a state of things the morbidly dissatisfied may easily revel in the expression of their discontentment; and to do them justice, they seldom lose an opportunity. In domestic life, the conduct of servants is a theme, alone, of endless complaint The "greatest plague in life," as servants are called, occasion, too, the grandest variety of those Jittle outbursts of the grumbling propensity. But after all, it is our Impression that good emplovers make good servants, and vice verm. May not all grumbling, therefore; arise as much from the grumbler's evil habits as from the evil characters of the person or thing grumbled at! It would be quite as well for us to contemplate, now and then, this view of the question, and reason ar cordingly. Puzzling a Schoolmistress. A National schoolmistress in the country was taking down the names and ages of Iter scholars at the commence ment of the term. when, coming in turn to a little white-lieadcd boy, she asked him, "Well, my lad, lrow old are you?" "My name a'n't Lad," said, he shurply : "it's John." "Well," said the schoolmistress, "what is the rest of your name 7" "WU, that's nil the name I've got, lust John." . , "Well, whut is your fathers name 7" "Oh you needn't put dad's name down:' he isn't comin' to Bt hool. He's too big to go to school." "Well, how old are you ?' "I ain't old at alls I'm young." The Best Sewing Machine. The very best sewine machine a man can have is a wife. It is one that re quires but a kind word to set it in mo tion, rarely gets out of repair, makes but little noise, is seldom the cause of dust, and, once in motion, will go on uninter ruptedly for hotus, without the slightest trimming, or the smallest personal su pervision being necessary. It will make shirts, darn stockings, sew on but ons, mark pocket-handkerchiefs, cut out pin afores ; and manufacture children's frocks out of any old thing you may trive it; and this it will do behind your back iust as well as before your lace, in f act, you mnv leave the house for days, and it will go on working just tne same. If it does get out of order a little, from leing over worked, it mends itself by being left alone for a short time, after which it re turns to its sewing with greater vigor than ever. Of course, sewing machines varv a great deal. Some are mucu quick er than others. It depends in a vast measure upon the uarticular pattern you select If you are fortunate in picking out the choicest pattern of a wife one, for instance, that sings whilst working, and seems to be never so happy as when the husband's linen is in hand the sew ing machine may be pronouwed perfect of its kind : so much so, that there is no makeshift in the world that can possibly replace it, either for love or money. In short no gentleman's establishment is complete without one of these sewing machines in the house. The Real Hero. In 1793 the Prussian officers of the garrison of Colbenr established an economical mess, of which certain poor emigrants were glad to partake. They observed one day an old major of hus sars, wno was covered with the scars of wounds received in the Seven Years' War, and half hidden by enormous gray moustaches, lhe conversation turned on duels. A young stout-built cornet began to prate In an authoritative tone on the subject "And you, major, how many duels have you fought?" "None, thank Heaven," answered the old hussar, in a subdued voice ; "I have fourteen wounds, and Heaven be praised, there is not one in my back ; so that I may be permitted to say that I feel myself happy .in never having fought a duel." "But you shall fight one with me," exclaimed the cornet, reaching across to give him a blow. The major, agitated, grasped the table to assist himself in rising, when a unanimous cry was raised : "Don't stir, major." All the officers present joined in seiz ing the cornet, when they threw him out at the window, and sat down again at the table as if nothing had occurred. Ingenious Swindle. A young gentleman recently drove np to the establishment of a well-known watchmaker, and purchased a gold hun ter for forty-eisrht pounds. Unfortunately he had left a fifty-pound note on his desk at home. Wouid Mr. So-and-so kindly send a man with him to hia business house naming an eminent firm of iron mongers? The man might keep the change for himself. Mr. So-and so hummed and hawed, and found means to communicate with the cabman, who, however, told him that he had taken up his fare at the ironmonger's establishment in question, and that the "gent" was going down to Pytchly. Thereupon the man was sent Arriving at the establishment the young gentleman ushered the watchmaker's man into the shop, and told the clerk to "give him that fifty pounder," So saying, hejumped into the cab and drove off. The clerk, who had politely bowed and gone off to fetch the cash, then returned with a brown paper parcel, which he suavely handed to the man. - "What's this?'' asked the astonished messenger. "This isn't fifty pounds." "Excuse me," was the reply, "it is. It's the fifty pound dumb-bell the gentle man bought about an hour ago." The watchmaker still cherishes that dumb-belL- - i-n. ..In 1853, when Hanover and other parts of Northern Germany were visited by a very malignant kind of small-pox, the great anatomist, Langenbeck, tried to discover "the peculiarity of organic structure which disposes one man to catch the disease while his neighbor es capes." "I have cut up more human bodies than the "Old Man of the Moun tain' with all his accomplices," he writes from Gottengen, in his semi-annual re port, "and, speaking only of my primary object, I must confess that I am no wiser than before. But though the mystery of small-pox has eluded my search, my labors have not been in vain ; they have revealed to me something elsethe origin of consumption. I am sure now of what I suspected long ago, viz : That pulmon ary diseases have very little to do with intemperance or with erotic excesses, and much less with cold weather, but are nearly exclusive (if we except tuber culous tendencies inherited from both parents I say quite exclusively) produced by the breathing of foul air. The lungs of all persons, minors included, who had worked for some years in close work shops and dusty factories, showed the germs of the fatal disease, while confirm ed inebriates, who had passed their days in open air, had preserved their respira tory organs intact, whatever inroads their excesses had made on the rest of their system. If I should go into practice and undertake the cure of a consumptive, I should begin by driving him out into the Deister (a densely wooded mountain range of Hanover), and prevent him from entering a house for a year or two. Thb LITTI.E Sleeper.- -Last night at eleven o'clock, on tlio rickety steps of a second-hand store on King William street, says the Hamilton Spectator, a little lad lay sleeping. His nead was pillowed on the basket in which he had peddled oranges all day, and his young lace, not over clean, not over intelligent bnt innocent and composed, was turned upwards and changed" Quickly, as if he dreamed as the fitful uncertain light of a clouded moon swept over it like the wing of an invisible spirit There were not many pedestniius on the street, but what few passers-by there were paid no attention to the little sleeper, nor stopped to inquire who he was or whence he came. He slept as calmly as if he were resting on a bed of down, his stained hands folded, his lips parted and warm. The little stars came out from behind the clouds and looked down with glistening eyes upon the child, and the wakeful moon often stole softly be hind the heavy vapor and hid her light, lest some rude hand would disturb the lad who slept He lay there unmolested, and none but the gentle spirit that watched over the lad heard him whisper in his dreams "two for five, fo' for ten." Thb Horse's Back. The first thing, says the Michigan .Farmer, to notice in judging of a horse, so far as his back is concerned, is the length of it A long hack is a weak one, the world over, and 11 every instance. By superior excel ence of structure in other respects, the weakness of the back, may in some measure, be made up, but the l?or9e can never be the horse he would have been, had his back been a shorter one. A horse's back, if shorter, has strength, and is sure evidence that he can carry or drag a heavy weight a great distance and not tire ; neither will two or three sea sons of turf experience break bim down if he is a speedy animal, as is the case with so many long backed horses. The Farmer observes in regard tQ the length of stride In a horse 1 "It is not. in anv way, the result of the back, but the po sition of the posterns, the slope of the shoulders and the position of the great bones of the 'hind legs. There must be length somewhere, or else the horse can not stride fur, bnt it should be put in be low and not above. The length should be between the shoulder point and the hams of the horse," Dbatii DV Drowm.no.

The best cure for dullness is to keep busy. Time is what we want most hut what we use worst, and for which we must an account when time shall be nd more. The moment that anything assumes he Shane of a duty some person, fed themselves mcapable of discharging it. Envy pursues its victims throuchont life. It ceases to gnaw onry when the grave-worm, its orother reptile, begins. The poor man has often recently com plained that he has nothing to live on the rich still oftener that he has nothing to live for. There are many doublings m the hu man heart ; don't think that you can find out the whole of a man's real char acter at once. The expectation of future happiness is the best relief for anxious thoughts, the most perfect cure of melancholy, the guide of life and the comfort of death. It is far from being cne of the best features of human nature, that, whilst we love those whom we have benefited, we often hate those who have benefited us. Say nothing respecting yourself, either good, bad. or imlifferent ; nothing good, for that is vani ; nothing bad, for that is affectation ; nothing indifferent, for that is silly. The friend who pardons a wrong, ac auires a superiority that wounds the self love of the pardoned man ; and, howev er mucn the miter may admire the gen erosity of the giver, he can love as he had jreviously done no more. Nature has strange ways of doing the most beautiful things. Out of tne oozy earth, the mud and rain of early spring, come the most delicate flowers, their white leaves born out of the dirt, as un soiled and pure as if they had bloomed in the garden of Paradise. The best thing to give your enemy is forgiveness ; to your opponent toler ance ; to a friend, yonr heart ; to your child, a good example ; to a father, de ference ; to your mother, conduct that will make her proud of you ; to yourself, respect ; to all men, charity. We are amused at hearing the story of an old lady whose only exclamation on hearing of the execution of a man who had once lived m the neighborhood, gallows, at last, for the knot in his hand kerchief was always slipping round un der his left ear " Providence has so ordained it that only two women have a true interest in the happiness of a man his own mother and the mother of his children. Besides these two legitimate kinds of love there is nothing between the two creatures except vain excitement, painful and idle delusions. , Wax has been used for sealing since the earliest ages. The oldest seals ap pear to have been impressed on white wax. Subsequently yellow wax was used. At a more recent period, sealing wax was colored red; and about the fourteenth century it was colored green, and sometimes black. The Journal, of Rio Janeiro, says positively that ammonia will cure yellow fever. The general treatment is the same as now pursued; but as soon as the presence of albumen is detected in the secretions, doses of five grammes of ammonia in a glass of water are given with astonishing results. A Yankee minister, being threatened with deprivation, said to some of his flock, that if he were "deprived" it would cost a hundred men their lives. On being asked what he meant by such a threat, he explained that if - he lost his benefice he should set up as a quack doctor, and if so, he had no doubt he should be the death of at least a hun dred patients. A gentleman wishing to improve hii garden, ordered hi3 gardener to be very dilligent with his work. When the eentieman next went into the earden he sought for the gardener, and after some time he found him sleeping under a large apple-tree. He awoke him, and said, "Is this the way you are working? You do not deserve the bread you eat! You are not worthy the sun should shine on you !" "1 know it sir, replied the gardener; "and for that very reason I laid myself down under this shade.
