I have made iu a number of years of ardent collection qoita a library of my own notes, and the fact that I have al ready lived two-tuirds of my probable tctlicr of life and am a "bnccaueer" of the uewRpajicr world by stress of cir cnuiKtances sometimes gives me a pang. I recognize the lndicrousness of my col lection for an impossible future of com fort und li isnre, for even one possible posthumous work. I have never bad Icihnro to produce ono whole or com plete pieco cf lit ralnre and probably never shall have a day's leisure in my lire, tint this irony cf fate dees not de ter me. I am like a collector of specimens of but tot 0 ics. hie will never learn to fly, or tbo secret cf it, cr anything in par ticular, but be goes on collecting. I shall never write tbe books of tbe sketch skeletons in my imagination, but I shall certainly continue to make pnd less preparations for a posthumous li brnry of, according to my schemes and plus aud themes, some 1,000 stnidy volumes, The world of readers may thank God pernaps that these books will notap pear in pnut, but I am just mad euongh to get some zest in life ont of making, in imagination, these schemes lor books that can never be written, Perhaps it is as nauo an occupation as old cnina collecttuit, stamp collectiiia. button collecting and, to jump to the extreme of Philistinism, the collection of dubious old masters, mostly daubs. I confess this speculation seems to mo to be a fad no wiser. Looking at it from my point of view, as a book lovsr, I think what a library these daubs wonld buy. Lotus. Broke the Spell. Up to the time of Cleveland's election it was a popular superstition with poll ticiaus tbat no candidate whose name began with tbe letter C conld be elected to tbe presidency. Tbe idea arose from tbe fact that no man whose surname presented this peculiarity, no matter how strong he was with tbe people, had ever beeu snccessfnl at tbe polls. There were two Clintons, George aud DeWitt, William II. Crawford, Henry Clay, Lewis Cass and a number cf others. who, though their prospects seemed tright indeed, met with a defeat when it came to the test Several of the C's, George Clinton and Henry Clay, for in stance, were strong candidates several times, bnt never conld "make tbe riffle."

When an innocent man is jailed by mistake .he prefers to come ont the same way he went in. Be mav break iail and be canght and pnt back again. He'd rather have the door un locked and walk ont and stay oar. A sick man is a prisoner in the jail of disease; he has gone is by some door of carelessness or neglect or irregular living, and he mast unlock this same door bv careful, sensible habits if he wants to be a free, well man again. If dvsnensia and biliousness or rmmtina. tion is the way he got into disease, he has got to overcome just tnose tronoles before be can get ont. The majority of diseases begin with some trouble of the digestive organs or of the liver, which prevents the supply of proper nourishment to the svstem. The best remedy for these troubles is Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, because it gives the digestive and blood-making organs power to assimilate food and transform it into pure, nourishing blood, vitalized with an abundance of red corpuscles. It acts directly npon the liver and gives it capacity to filter all bilious impurities out of the circulation. It builds up solid, muscular flesh and healthy nerve-force. In obstinate constipation the " Discov ery " should be used in conjunction with Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets, the most nat ural and thoroughly scientific laxative ever devised. The 'Pellets" regulate and in vigorate the stomach, liver and bowels. One is a gentle laxative ; two act as a mild cathartic. "My wife had suffered for seven years with dvs pepsia. sick headache and costivenrss." writes Mr. Alonxo D.Jameson, of Dunbarton, Merrimack Co.. N. H., ' we tried many doctors and many kinds of medicine, but all were of no avail. We purchased six bottles of vonr Golden Medical Discovery,' which together with the -pleasant Pellets' has entirely restored my wife's health, and we cannot sav enough in thanks to you lot these valuable mediciaea." w r r rmrtr A sr o I r r Yon oftn hear one say I d. n't know what to gxt for d nner, wilt jou tuirg-i?
