Take an hoar of exercise to every pound
of food. We are not nourished . by what
i we eat, bnt by what we digest. Every
hoar you ileal from digestion will be re
claimed by Indigestion. 1 Beware of the
wrath of a patient stomach! He who con
trol hie appetite in regard to the quality
of hie food, may aafely indilgi it in re
gard to quantity. The of tener yon eat the
of tener you will repent it. Dyspepsia is a
poor pedestrian, walk at the rate of four
or five miles an hour and yon will soon
leave her behind. Abstinence from all
etimnlents is easier than temperance. An
egg is worth a pound of meat. Sleep is
sweeter after .last-day than after a feast
day.' A good hair mattress contributes to
health, aud ours are warranted or money

Say. John, ere vou a Judize of clanosl
Well now, Peterl really that is laugh
able; why do yuu ankt
Well, you see, Susie, the pet of our
nouee, is seven years old, and wife and I
have been thiuging that as she is not jrery
strifng it would be the proper thingto give
her a musical education. You know, John,
when you aud I were children attention
was. not so much iu that direction and it
was hot considered so much of a qualifica
tion us at present, so I dou't wonder in the
least at the look of surprise that crosses
your face. But really, John, your wife
asked me to bring up the subject to you as
your Bessie is getting to be the right age
for a piano, aa well; and she was of the
opinion that if we should decide to both
buy at once that Shoninger would give us
a discount. 1 understand they are very
reasonable with honest people who desire
a piano, and being honest themselves
that firm would be the best to patronize.
What do you think!
why, Peter, I have been thinking for
some time on the same subject, and 1
stepped into the store thi morning aud
requested Mr Pelbam to give me a list of
names comprising reoeut purchasers. He
very kindly aud 1 must say a little proudly
acceded to my request by bringing forth
a list of namts,that fairly astonished me.
Examine it. (John, perusing.) Whew, but
that is surely a stunner. If those people
who are judges have decided for the
Shoninger piano we ought to commence
the year right by doing likewise.
To Shoningers we will go looking for
the best the market affords, at the lowest
possible proies.
B. SHONINGER & CO,
Geo L. Felham, Manager.
We submit the list of purchasers given
to Peter, made during the lust three
months, honor bright, and ask our com
petitors to beat it if they can. -S.

visited Deacon Buck, but he was not at
home. The ' unwelcome visitors left
word that they would call again unless
the deacon Trended his ways.
- The trouble in Deacon Smally's house
bold assumed a new phase yesterday,
when Mrs. Smally ordered her sister out
of the, house. This sister is as fair a
maiden as her married sister, and Deacon
Smally is authority for the statement
that Deacon Buck was smitten by - the
sister's charms. This made Mrs. Smally
very jealous, and after Buck had taken
her sister to ride a few times Mrs. Smally
sent her home, thus having Deacon Buck
all to herself.- .
Deacon Smally says he has frequently
caught Deacon Buck kissing ' bis wife,
and she told him that she oared more for
Buck than for him. There will probably
be a church investigation.
