The ."Boss" System Among Esqui
maux Dogs. .
There is always one bully in every
team, who gets all the choice bits that
are stolen by the others, and generally
manages to keep fat, no matter how
short they are of provisions. He waits
for the others to make the raid, and
then stands on the outside to take it
away from them. These bullies are in
several grades. There is the chief, of
whom all are afraid, and then there is
the next in rank, of whom all are afraid
but the chief; n third, of whom all are
afraid but the two, and so on down.
Sometimes the food is cut into small
pieces and thrown out upon the ice for
all to help themselves, and then there
is a rough-and-tumble fight, and snarl
ing and growling, as if a whole cage of
hyenas had broken loose. But here the
bullies have no advantage ; indeed, the
advantage is with the small, lively fel
lows that slip in and get the meat while
the big ones are fighting. When a dog
manages to steal a piece of meat he has
a lively time of it, tjbr soon every dog in
camp is" after him,j and he has to eat it
on the run, if at all, headed off at every
turn by one ol the bullies, and whining

Dole, of this city, in a conversation, f who
was troitbled with a severe lameness in
her legs, pronounced by sc,J Erysipe

tried Beveral remedies without effect,
when I was induced to apply St. Jacobs
Oil and I am happy to say that the use
of but one bottle cured her, and she is
now able to go to school again.

J. Lips, says our correspondent Bow
ditch, owe theirextremered color to the
thinness of the covering membrane, and
their sensitiveness to an abundant supplf
of minute nervous fibers'. JaTmonly
face the upper lip should extend beyond
and dominate theower. Fleshy lips
ore often found" associated with a volup
tuous, and ifceager ones with a passion
less, nature. Lips are delicious things
--blessings of many agreeable concomi
tants, such as smiles, sweet words, and
intensities denominated " kisses.'
There is something soothing and de
lightful in the recollection of a pure
minded woman's kiss ; it is the oasis in
the desert of a worldly man's life, to
which his feelings turn for refreshment,
when wearied with the unhallowed .pas
sions of this work-o'-day world. Lips
are emotion's dwelling place, and pas
sion's their breathing giveth vitality to
affections of all sorts, a friend's, a par
ent's, a sister's,' a brother's, a lover's,
Lips that smile ore gems ; those that
cannot smile are like buds that cannot
blossom, and which dry upon the stalks.
Eternal praise to lips in. general, and
especially to the couple we hold dearest.
Sir John Suckling in his ballad upon a
"Her lips were red, and one was thin,
Compared to that was next hor chin,
Some beo had iltung it nowly."
It is considered by M. Perissethat it

tians and Phoenicians used steel, if, in
deed, they did not make it.

of Bowling Green, Va., writes under date ol
April JL intil. Ho says: " I firmly believe that
AwibSTs Ltiso Balsam will and has cured eon-
.'enmption if taken in time and proper care be
taken of the patient both in suitable food and
clothing. Six years ago my mother was at
tacked with pneumonia. ' Tho attending physi
cian 'some time after' told mo that the dis
easo had settled 011 her Lungs, and that she
had tho consumption. Not behoving that a
permanent cure could be effected, -fcut thinking
I might be able to got an expectorant not con
taining opium, which would afford some relief,
I inquired of a druggist at Riohmonc1 Va., ii
ho had any medicine not containing opium
that was a good expectorant. He them recom
monded Allen's Lung Balsam which I pur
chased and induced my mothc, to try. Before
she had takon tho first bottle tho improvement
in her condition was so marked that I purchased
three more bottles. Tho attending physician,
seeing the beneficial effects, rocoramended its
contii led use, and in about twelve months her
lungs were pronounced curod. Upon my
recommendation many others who had the
consumption havo been cured. I think you
can claim for your medicine tbo followina:
Expectoration .without irritation, and healing
or the lunge by keeping them free from foreign
subst ances, thus arresting and curing this dread
disease." Mr. Digges says ho writes because he
wants it known that Allen's Lung Balsam ie
