MANY WHO ABE SUFFERING
from the effects ot tbe warm weather and are de
bilitated, are advised by physicians to take mod
crate amounts of whisky two or three time during
the day. In a little while those who adorjt this ad
vice frequently increase the number of "drinks
and in time become confirmed inebriates. A bev
erage which will not create thirst for intoxicating
liquors, and which is intended especially for the
benefit of debilitated perscs, whether at home or
abroad, is Dr. Schenck's Sea Weed Tonic. Con
taining the juices of man medicinal herbs, this
preparation does not create an appetite for the In
toxicating cnp. The iionrishing and the life sup'
porting properties of many valuable natnnil pro
ductions contained in it and well known to medi
cal men have a most strengthening influence. A
single bottle of the Tonic will demonstrate its val
cable qualities. For debility arising from sickness
over exertion or from anv cause whatever, a wine-
glassful of Sea Weed Tonic taken after meals will
strengthen the stomacfi and create an appetite for
wholesome Hood. Eo all who are about leaving

If there is anything that is thoroughly
repugnant to the man of good hard sense,
it is fulsome flattery. There is something
si unreal, so nauseating to the finer feel5
inga h8 to create a sense of utter .disgust:
It displays a lack of good sense on the part
of the one who indulges in unreal compli
ments, and the real motive is eo transpar
ent to the one for which the flattery is in
tended, that it cannot but awaken a feel
ing of loathing. Apropos, is the article in
the Mcline Review, on Rev. K. C. Bar
nard which is so slobberly, gross, and
overreaching in its nature as not to permit
its being passed unnoticed. The writer
proceeds to say that:
Rev. E. C. Barnard, of the Congrega
tional church is a remarkable preacher.
His sermon last Sabbath on "Capital and
Labor" was one ot the ablest discourses we
have ever heard delivered Py any man."
Hisermoa was a good one. no doubt.
and may have been the best he (the editor)
ever heard. Perhaps he had a very small
list to select from. But listen to the way
he blows his own bugle:
We are glad to observe that he took
the same view of the labor and capital
question, taken by the Review in its issue
of the Friday previous.
Now, if the Review had any opinion
during the recent strike, its editorials were
not sufficiently lucid to admit of any such
interpretation. Again, he gushes, to-wit:
"The call of him to the pastorate of the
Congregational church has inaugurated a
ueci. iu iuc ui.iiv ciuqucutjc ui luisuuy.
"New Era" is good, "pulpit eloquence"
is better, and the whole sentence is at
Variance with what everybody know?, that
E. C. Barnard is not an elocutionist. But
dwell on this brilliant effusion:
ins intellect is imperial, his resources
are inexhaustible. As a preacher he has
no superior in the west. In matter, in
structure, in diction, in phraseology, in de
livery, and in everything, his sermons are
strikingly original. Tbey are characterized
by a depth of thought, love, sympathy and
mercy a force of logic, a wealth of
language, a sparkle of metaphor, a vivid
ness ot description, a gracefulness of transi
tion, and a felicity ol elocution, which, to
gether, constitute the perfection of elo
quence." io tee average reaaer it win need no
explanation to show how utterly wrong this
is. Everybody who has heard Rev. Barn
ard knows that his delivery is poor, that
he is not a brilliant orator. "Sparkle of
metaphor," why, anyone to read this ut
terly disgusting slobbering would imagine,
if they were uuacauainted with Mr.
Barnard, that he was a "Cicero," a
Socrates," or a prototype of one of the
mythological geniuses we read about. In
a word it is gross injustice to Mr. Barnard,
who is a man of good hard sense and a
preacher of genuine usefulness, hut by no
means a rhetorician cr elocutionist That
he has a valuable fund of thought, and is
an able man, no one will dispute, but aj
for comparison with noted oratorical minis
ters, when he lacks in oratory, in rhetorical
display, and impassioned metaphoric
passages, is simply fulsome, unreal, and
patronizing in the extreme, and cannot but
do harm where good was intended. If
anything were needed to show the incon
sistency of the whole eulogy(?), the fol
lowing conclusively proves it:
"The person ot the reverend 'gentleman
is rather delicate, and his voice is of no
great strength nor compass."
Here the writer in the Reciexo. contra
dicts all he has said. The whole article is
far from complimentary to Mr. Barnard,
and instead of serving the purpose for
which it was intended, cannot but create a
feeling of disgust among all true friends,
and members of his congregation.

wandering aimlessly around town in a sus

payment of costs. He acted very ner
vously and appeared in a great hurry to
get out of the office, so much so, that the
sufpicions of Officers ' Olson and Teller
were aroused, and they watched him take a
circuitous route and start east on the rail
road as fast as he could walk, when they
gave chase, overtook, and again lodged him
in the calaboose. He answers the descrip
