Walker's California Tin- Cgar Bitters are a purely Vegetablo preparation, made- ckielly from tho na tivo herbs found on tho lower ranges of the Sierra Nevada mountains of Califor nia, tho medicinal properties of which are extracted therefrom without tho uso of Alcohol. Tho question i3 almost daily asked, "What is the cause of tho unparalleled success of Vinegar Bit ters?" Our answer is, that they rcmovo tho cause of disease, and tho patient re covers his health. They aro tho great blood purifier aud a life-giving principle, a perfect Kenovator and Iuvigorator of tho Eystem. Never before in the history of" the world has a medicine been compounded possessing the reniarkablo qualities of Vinegar Bitters in healing the Eick of every disease man ia heir to. They aro a geutlo Purgative as well as a Ton., relieving Congestion or Inflammation of the Liver and Visceral Organs in Bilious Diseases The properties of Dr. Walker's Vixega. Bitters are Aperient, Diaphoretic, Carminative, Nutritions, Laxative, Diuretic, Sedative, Counter-irritant Sudorific, Altera tive, and Anti-Eilkms. Grateful Thousands proclaim Vin egar Bitters the most wonderful In vigorant that ever sustained th sinking system. No Person can take these Bitters according to directions, and remain long unwell, provided their bones are not de stroyed by mineral poison or other means, and vital organs wasted beyond repair. , Bilious, Remittent and Inter mittent i evers, which are so preva lent in tho valleys of our great rivers throughout tho United States, especially those of tho Mississippi, Ohio, Missouri, Illinois, Tennessee, Cumberland, Arkan sas. Ked, Colorado, Brazos, Rio Grande, Pearl, Alabama, Mobile, Savannah, Ro anoke, James, and many others, with their vast tributaries, throughout our entire country duriug tho Summer and Autumn, aud remarkably so during sea sons of unusual heat and dryness, aro invariably accompanied by extensive de rangements of tho stomach and liver, and other abdominal viscera. In their treatment, a purgative, exerting a pow erful intluenco upon these various or gans, is essentially necessary. There is no cathartic for the purpose equal to Dr. J. Walker's Vinegar Bitters, as they will speedily remove the dark colored viscid matter with which the bowels are loaded, at the same time stimulating the secretions of tho liver, aud generally restoring tho healthy functions of tiie digestive organs. Fortify the body against disease by purifying all its fluids with Vinegar Bitters. No epidemic can take hold of a system thus forc-armcd. Dyspepsia or Indigestion, Head ache, Pain in the Shoulders, Coughs, Tightness of the Chest, Dizziness, Sour Eructations of the Stomach, Bad Taste in the Mouth, Bilious Attacks, Palpita tation fcf the Heart, Inflammation of the Lungs, Pain in the re-ion of the Kid neys, and a hundred other painful symp toms, are tho onsprmgs ot Dyspepsia. One bottle will prove a better guarantee of its merits than a lengthy advertise ment. Scrofula, or King's Evil, White Swellings, Ulcers, Erysipelas, Swelled Neck, j Goitre, Scrofulous Inilammatious, Indolent Inflammations, Mercurial Affections, Old ! Sores, Eruptions of the Skin, Sore Eyes, etc. In these, as iu all other constitutional Dis eases, "Walker's Vi.tegak Bitters havo shown their great curative powers iu tho most obstinate and intractable cases. For Inflammatory and Chronic Rheumatism, Gout, Bilious, Remit tent and Intermittent Fevers, Diseases of the Blood, Liver, Kidneys and Bladder, these Bitters have no equal. Such Diseases are caused by Vitiated Blood. Mechanical Diseases. Persons en gaged in Paints aud Minerals, such as Plumbers, Type-Fetters. Gold-beaters, and Miners, as they advance in life, are subject to paralysis of tio Bowels. To guard against this, take a dose of "Walker's Vin egar Bitters occasionally. For Skin Diseases, Eruptions, Tet ter, Salt-Rheum, Blotches, Spots, Pimples, Pustules, Boils, Carbuncles, Ring-worms, Scald-head, Sore Eyes, Erysipelas, Itch, Scurfs. Discolorations of the Skin, Humors ami Diseases of the Skin of whatever name or nature, are literally dug np and carried out of the system in a short time by the use of these Bitters. Pin, Tape, and other Worms, lurking in the system of so many thousands, are effectually destroyed and removed. No .system of medicine, no vermifuges, no an thelmintics will tree the system from worms like these Bitters. For Female Complaints, in young or old, married or single, at the dawn of wo manhood, or the turn of life, these Tonic Bitters display so decided an influence that improvement is soon perceptible. Cleanse the V ltiatetl uioott when ever you find its impurities bursting through the skin in Pimples, Eruptions, or Sores; cleanse it when you find it obstructed and sluggish in the veins; cleanse it when it 13 foul ;' you.- feelings will tell you when.

An; Unexpected Railroad Adventure- ftniOKIH' en: ?" asked the ere my rugs polite porter, as he and binor packages along tli plat form. I s:iid yes, and lie made me comfortable, a::d received hia dime. T5fn the guard came to look after I'm," veil-being, lut got nothing more than innocent gratitudewhich was perhaps all he desired. I have noioubt that I did h'ta injustice in. attributing his efforts to induce axt old gentleman who was unuffv. ai'l a middle aged gentleman en- veloped in wraps, the lower )art ol whose face waa covered up like a female Tut k'?, an evident window Sautter to enter my ear i:i order U spite me. : Duty to his employers alone made him endeavor to fill m; but the anxiety to get as as possible for my strong within me, and mmch room money was stirred un- charitable suspicions, s You may lead a horse to the water or an anti nicotinian old gentleman to a smoking-car, but iyou can't make him get in; and jwhen each in turn put his head into ?my compartment, he jibbed, for some late occupants of it had been cigar, not pipe-smokei s, and it was rather strong. So I was apparently left alone: alone with all the comic weeklies, and a modern poem. The doors were banged to, the engine whistled, tha train began to move. It would not stop again till we get to Pcterborouch- that I was safe to be undisturbed so far. There were several seats, and I could occupy as many of them as limited number of members permitted. I almost wished mys self an Octopus, to take full ad vantage of the situation. Calming down, I hung up my hat, put on a gaudy piece of needlework won in a bazaar raffle, lit my pipe, cut my papers, and began to enjoy myself. I sat in the left-hand corner, with my back t.r thr- enfrine. absorb pdinaMir law-suit. It is rrreat un to read a cross-examination, and watch how ;t clever lawyer will mike an honest man preiure him-. self. "It reads almost like a crime," 7 remarked aloud, "but then it is an honorable, lawful, and beneficial crime. Soldiers kill people's bodies, lawyers kill people's reputations all tor he good ol society in the long run." hile I was uttering the word "run, my ankles were grasped suddenly and firmly; then before I could recover lrom the shoct, they were jerked backward under the seat with sucu torce tnat i was thrown forward sprawling. I tried to rise, but my right wrist -was seized, and the arm twisted till I was helpless, and presently I found myself on the floor of the car, face downward, a snarp knee oeing scientifically pressed into the small of my back, both arms lixed be hind me. My elbows were tied to gether, and then the knee was removed, and my ankles were secured. During the latter opera don I kicked and struggled. " Hum !" said a deliberate voice, "that will be awkward. Let's see, ah, these will do !" These were mv sticks and urns brella, which some proceeded to apply as splints to the backs of my lpfrs."nsinf the straps which had kept them in a bundle to fix at the ankle and above the When he had done, I was as less as a trussed turkey. Then I was turned over them knee help care fully and tenderly, and for the first time saw my assauant He was a eentlemanlv-looking man, well dressed in black coat and waist-cqat, gray trowsers, and neckcloth. His hair and whiskers were iust turning grizzly, his chin and upper-lip were clean shaved His forehead was high, Ins eyes prominent and fixed in their ex pression, his nose aquiline, his mouth a' slit. He was of middle height, spare but wiry; indeed, his muscles must have been unexcep tionally elastic and feline lor you would never have thought, to look at him, that he could stow himself away under the seat of a railway car so completely. He contemplated me with his chin in his right hand, and his right elbow on his left hand, and said thoughtfully: ''Just so. All for the good of society in the long run; an admirable sentiment, my dear sir; let it be a consolation to you if I should cause you anv little annoyance." He took a shagreen spectale case from his pocket, wiped the glasses carefully with a silk handkerchief, and adjusted them on his nose. Then he produced an oblong box, which he unlocked, and placed on . a . 1 - i 1. one ct the seats. Alter wn;c.i ue sat down quickly in the place I had occupied a few minutes before, a position which brought him close to my head and chest, as I lay sup pinery and helpless at his feet. J) "Do you know anything of ana- ! tony?" he asked. I was as com- j pletely in his power as a witness in i the cross examining counsel's, and i prudence dictated that I should be equally ready to answer the nust f.ivo'ous and impertinent questions ! with politeness I said that I did j not. "All!" you have I said he, "well, perhaps j heard of the snleen ? ! Exactly. Now, science has never j as yet been able f find out the use, of that organ, and the man who be- j qucatln that knowledge to posterity. ; wouki ranK with tne discoverer m the circulation of the blood, and confer an inestimable benefit on humanity for the remainder of the world's lease. I propose to dissect yon." "You will not get much glory by that, 1 said, forcing myself to ; seem to take this outrageous practical joke in good part. " An ungrateful generation may or may not profit by your discoveries, but it will infallibly hang you." " Not so," he bluntly replied. "1 am a surgeon, who once had a very considerable practice, but 1 had to stand my trial for an ex periment, which proved fatal, on one of my patients. The jury, unable to understand the sacrifices which an earnest inquirer is ever ready to offer at the shrine of science, declared me mad, and I was placed in confinement. You see that I can act with impunity." And ho opened tho box. I broke out in a cold sweat. Was it all real? Could the man be in earnest? "But," sid I, "surely you can get dead bodies to dissect without hav ing recourse to a crime. And again, if generations of anatomists have failed in twenty thousand investi gations, to discover the use of the spleen if you yourself have always failed hitherto why should you suppose that this one attempt shculd be more successfullthan the others?" "Because, my dear sir," said the man with a smile of one who has caught a bright idea, "all former investigations, including my own, have been made on dead subjects, while I propose to examine your vi tal organs with a powerful magni fying glass, while they are exercis- , ing their normal functions." 1 s,vnat; i craspeu. "xou m never have the barbarity" and here my voice choked. " O yes, 1 have conquered that prejudice against inflicting suffer ins which is natural to the mind enfeebled by civilization. For many years I secretly practice vi visection upon animals ; I once had a cat, an animals very tenacious of life, under my scalpel for a week. But we have no time to waste in conversation. YTou will not be put to any neadless f uffering ; these in struments are not my own, blunted for want of use ; I took the precau tion of borrowing the case of the gentleman under whose care 1 have been p'aced, betore making my escape." While speaking thus, he took the hideous little glittering instru ments, and examined them one by one. xney were 01 various appall ing shapes; and 1 gazed upon them with the horrible fascination of a bird under the power of a snake, Of one only could I tell the use a thin trenchant blade, which cut you almost to look at it. He knelt across me, arranged his implements on a seat at his right, laid a note book, pencil, and his watch on that to his left, and took off my neck cloth and collar, murmuring : " The elothes are very much in my way ; I wish that you were proper ly prepared for the operation." It flashed across me in my de spair that I had heard of madmen being foiled by apparent acquies cence in their murderous inten tions. " After all, I forced myself to say, " What is one life to the ben efit of the human race? Since mine is demanded, by silence let me aid you. Remove these bands, and allow me to take off my coat and waist-coat." He smiled, and shook his head. "Life is sweet ; I will not trust you," he said, unfastening my waistcoat, and turning back the lapels as far he could. Then tak ing a pair of scissors, he proceeded to cut my shirt front away, so that presntly my cheat was bared to his experiments. YYhetJier 1 closed my eyes, or was seized with vertigo, I do not know, but for a moment or two 1 lost sight of everything, and had visions ; a sort of grotesque night-mare it was, the figures in which I recall but I remember that the most prominent of them was a pig, or rather a pork hanging up outside of a butcher's shop, the ap pearance of which bore a mysterious resemblance to myself. These de llrious fantasies were dispelled by a sharp pang the anatomist had made tho first slight incision. I saw his calm face leaning over me ; the cruel blade with which he was about to make another and a deeper cut ; ins nngers, already crimson with my blood; and I struggled fantidally. My operator imme diately withdrew armed hand, and stood erect, Then, watching his opportunity he placed his right foot n the lower part of mv breasc bone, so that by pressure hV could suffocate me.

To liberate my legs was then an easy matter, but not so to extricate myself, the next thing I ses about. The whole top of the car, from where the stuffed eushion part ends, was carried, sheer away; and amidst the debris which encumbered my movements, lay the mangled and decapitiated body of the maaman, who, intend ing to assail my life, had, by keep ing me down at the bottom of the car, saved it. About Barns. A properly constructed barn and yard would add very largely to the comfort and thirst of the animals, save a larger per centage in the feed required by the present sys tem of housing and care, and save nearly one-half the labor of caring for stock in winter. It is in the saving of all manure under cover, and what might be made by adding some material to absorb the liquid that we might add one-third to the productive ot our tarms. Ot all the modern basement barns tnat 1 know of, but three make any provision for housing the manure, and in one ot tnese tne manure is puea up on tne stable floor behind the cattle, which vuiv, nic an ui ine siauie I continually, and would doubtlooo eccnes and objects which many peo effect the healtti of the animals in pie would oonsirW grpnt. rnriositiea time. A barn and yard should be con- structed to suit the capacity of the farm the amount and kind of stock kept, their location to the house, drive-ways, convenience ot getting into and out ot without needless trouble, opening gates passing through the yard which is always more or less filthy by dairyman especially should be avoided in car- rying milk to the dairy room are points to be considered, lhe con- venience for putting in the hay is of procuring, and not quite so ex usually good but for the storage of pensive as they are in London at straw, corn and fodder, convenience is almost entirely overlooKed and these latter are more liable to dam- age from bad storage than hay. lhe stable should bs arranged so that the manure could be put out without lifting or shovelinar, as is the case with all the modern barns I have seen. In this there i3 a great expenditure of time and strength that might be mostly avoid- ed and saved for use elsewhere on the farm, lhe stalls should be roomv. the mansrers so constructed ' o as to secure each animal its share ot the teed, have convenience lor feeding grain, clearing out handily, and a place tor storage of the oats, or litter, to be utilized bv beinc led to some other stock, or used in some other way. The pig pen should be beneath, or so constructed, that their propensity for rooting could be turned to account by mixing the comnost and addin? to the general accumulation of manure. The horse stable, wagon house and tool rooms, should all be under the same roof, be compactly and convenient ly arranged to avoid unnecessay outside covering -and being com- pact, would be warmer in winter, and less expensive in construction and in keeping up repairs. The basement, if properly arranged, will afford box stalls for ordinary use and shelter for all the stock in stormy or cold weather, besides giving storage for all manure and feeding ricks for stock that it is de- sirable to let in loose.

Give them a holiday now and then. They look for it, and they need it; and it will he better for you and them to let them have it. Other ingredients may with safety be added; but the above are a few of infinite importance, and should never be omitted. Farmers, try my receipe; it acts like a charm. Montreal Witness. Oysters Growing on Trees. Mr. C. II. Williams, a Fellow of tho Geographical Society, of Ens- land, tells us in the Hartford Times, how oysters inhabit the Macerovc woods in Cuba. "For several years, he says, " I resided'in that island, and traveled there more than the ordinary run of foreigners, nnrl havA several t.iTipa rnmp airns one in particular. No doubt the reader will open his eye8 at oysters growing on trees. Often have I seen the sneer of unbelief on the face of the ignorant when the fact has been mentioned ; but grow tbey do, and in immense quantities, es pecially in the southern part of the island. I have seen miles of trees, the lower stems and branches of which were literally covered with them, and many a good meal have 2 enioyed with very little trouble the present time. I simply placed the branches over the lire, andwhen opened I picked them out with a fork or a pointed stick, ihese pe- culiar sheil fish are indigenous in j lagoons and swamps on the coast, and as far as the tide will rise and the spray fly, so will they cling to the lower parts of the Mangrove trees, sometimes four or five deep, the Mangrove being one of the very few trees that flourish m salt water.

Uut when it is said of a frail young girl, just passing from childhood to ward the life of a woman, how sad is the story summed up in that short sentence. Who shall now check the wayward fancies who shall now bear with the errors and failings of a motherless daughter : Let not the cup of sorrow be overflowed by the harshness ot your bearing, or your unsympathizing coolness. Is she heedless of her doing ? Is she forgetful of her duty? Is 8he careless of her movements? Remember, oh, remember she has no mother. Catching a Tartar.
