Congressman Frank Lawler, of Chicago, is a man of the people.? He b is climbed up to a position in Congress from the lowest rounds of t lie social ladder. He lias been a laborer, a letter carrier, a keeper of an influential gin-mill, a ward politician, a Chicago alderman,and a Congressman, successively. Mr Lawler recently had occasion to call on Secretary Er.dicotf, and he found that gentleman surrounded by a frozen halo which displeased b in. Mi. Endicott appeared to be somewhat bored by the persistency of the member of the legislative branch of the Government, and was not at all disposed to pay much" attention to him. Lawler stuck to him, however, and at last gained his point. After that the august Secretary thawed out some? what towards the Congressman, and proceeded to give him a few points on the history of Massa? chusetts, especially on the Eudi cof.t family. He spoke of the glories of tue Colonial days, and incidentally mentioned that his ancestors were among the fore most rn Massachusetts. Warming up to his theme?and this is about the only subject that will warm him?he proceeded to trace the family t>ack until he had passed down in where the Adamses first aro-io on the genealogical horizon, aud wound up by saying: "Why, Mr. Lawler, we have suc? ceeded in tracing the Endicott family back to the earliest stage of the Norman conquest of England. In fact, the Endicott's wore known before William the Comuieror was heard of." "William the conqueror the blank," replied Mr.Lawler. ??Door ing the pasth summer, whin my my legislative dooties have not been so pressing,!, have paid a good deal of artintion to the airly his? tory of the Lawler family. Wil? liam the conqueror! Why, he's now.-ere. 1 found that the Lnw lers iveie a prominent family on the earth even before the Hood." To say that Mr. Endicott was aston.shed would scarcely express his leeliugs. Ue almost gasped for breath, but at length a happy thought struck him. "Mr. Lawler." said he with with? ering scorn in his voice, "if you can trace the Lawler's back be? fore the flood, how is it that we never heard anything of the family in the ark?" For a moment, and for a moment only,;he Chic >go man hesitated. Then he recovered himself and in? stantly replied: '?Mr. Secretary, I would haveyou to n odd's tan d, sir, that the Law lers were a respectable family. They had yachts and horses, and evcrythin; eise that was neces? sary for gintlemen in the antedilu vian.days. The Lawlers, sir. had a boat of their own, and didn't have to go iuto the ark."?Boston Traveller. An Old Story. The old story of the early bird and the worm, that used to be told lo en force the virtuous practice of early rising, becomes in a later and more degenerate age., somewhat less effective by turning attention to the worm's views of the affair. Keceufly it has appeared with a new amendment which restores all the point and piquancy of the orig? inal. A father had been lecturing his son upon the evils of staying out late it night aud getting up late in the morning. "Yon will never amount to anything," be contiuned "unless you turn over a new leaf. Remember that the early bird catches the worm " "How about the worm, father," inquired the young man, borrow? ing the old sarcasm, "wasn't he rather foolish to get up so earlyf" "My son," replied the old man solemnly, "that worm hadn't beeu to bed at ail. He was on his way home." What am I to Du? The symptoms of biliousness are unhappily but too well known.? They differ in different individuals to some extent. A bilious man is seldom a breakfast eater. Too fre? quently, alas, he has an excellent appetite for liquids but none for solids of a morning. His tongue will hardly bear inspection at any time; if it is not white and furred, it is rough, at all events. The digestive system is wholly out of order aud diarrhea or con? stipation may be a symptom or the two may alternate. There are oft en hemorrhoids or even loss of blood. There may be giddiness and often headache and acidity or flatulence and tenderness in the pit of the stomach. To correct all this if not effect a cure try Green's August Flower, it costs but a trifle aud thousands attest its efficacy. It Made a Difference. "Do you get many letters from your intended, Sue.?''
