Volcanic eruptions, cyclones, earthquakes are awfully and tremend ously picturesque, but scarcely desirable to emulate in action and effect by the administration of remedies which pro duce convulsion and agony in the abnor mal portion of the human frame. Such is the effect of the old fashioned violent purgatives happily falling more and more into disuse, and of which Hostetter's Stomach Bitters is the who'esome, pleas ant and far more effective succedaneum. They weakened the intestines the Bit ters invigorates them. They left the bowels inactive, because incapacitated by -ensuing feebleness. The Bitters on the contrary, and because it enables, not forces, them to act a vast and fortunate difference perpetuates their activity and regularity. The liver is beneficially stimulated, as the kidneys also are, by this medicines, which easily conquers, also, malaria, nervousness and rheu matism.

Any man who knows horses knows that It is a job for a muscular and clearheaded man to control a spirited animal in har ness. Even a fair quality of livery stable trotter will give his driver stout work in an nf.crnoon drive, and if ho gets scared and takes the bit between his teeth he will ntake ugly work of it. Yet in this city, and in the fashionable watering places, you will see women calmly perched on the box seat and handling the ribbons over animals which they could no more direct or restrain, if the" animals .did not wish it, than they could make the tides halt or the sun stand stilL Whenever old Commodore Vanderbilt, who could handle tho wildest horses with hands of steel, was out behind his cracks, and saw a woman driving toward him on tho road, ho used to draw out and give her plenty of room. "There's not room for us two out here," he used to say, aud most horsemen would have agreed with him. You can create a panic on tho HarJem hine any day by sending a womau out to dri vo among tho' horsemen. I of ten stroll in the park, and it uoeras to mo that 1 nou'r do so without witnessing ome flurry in tho drive a difference ot' opinion between a driving woman and her horso that results in either an accident or a narrow escape. There are "plenty of hordes which women can drive safely, but these no woman with any pretensions to style wants to drive. Tho family horse has gone out of fashion with the jog trot. Society now wants to travel at a high step and full speed Tho girl fresh from school requires a Galway wall topper har nessed to her phaeton, and her mother cannot enjoy, her airing on wheels with tiut having an iron jawed, liddlestring nerved, thoroughbred, that it would be hard work for a life guardsman to haudle, to haul her. Even the fashionable child has outgrown the pony carriage and tho Shetland, and goes in for mettled horso flesh that would scarcely bo safe in tho hands of his father. And still there are people, no doubt, who wonder when dis aster waits on folly, and accident accepts the invitation so freely offered it. Alfred Trtunble ui New York News.

A Haunted Hcase. This body of ours has'been likened to a tenement. It often has a haunted apartment the stomach. Scared by the eldrich sprite, dyspepsia, digestion flies and refuses to return . What can bieak the spell, what can raise the ban laid upon the unhappy organs? We answer unhesitatingly, Hostetter's Stomarh Bit ters, and we are warranted in the re sponse by the recorded testimony of myriads, covering a period of over a third of a century. A course of the Bitters, begun in any stage of the afflic tion, and persistently followed, will ter minate in cure positive, not partial. The Bitters restores tone to the epigastric nerve, renews and purifies the juices exuding from the cellular tissue that act upon the food digestively, expels bile from the stomach and the blood, and promotes a regular habit of body. Ma laria, kidney complaint, nervousness, rheumatism and neuralgia give way to this medicine. U, S. Land Office Xotice.

Don't Go Off Before Yon Are Ready, Particularly on a long journey. Be fulh prepared. You cannot be, permit us to say, unless you are accompanied with the traveler's and tourist's vade mecum, Hos tetter's Stomach Bitters, most genial of appetizers, acchmatizers and promoters of digestion. Against sea sickness, ma laria, cramps and colics begotten of badly cooked or unwholesome food and brack ish water, nervousness, increased by travel, chronic bilhousness and constipa tion, the Bitters is a sovereign preventi tive. It impatts a relish for food not altogether to your taste, and prevents it from disagreeing with you. Never was there such a capital thing for the unfor tunate dyspeptic who stands in dread of the best cooked meal. Stomachic trou ble caused by ill prepared viands aboard ship, on steamboats, and rations hastily bolted at railway restaurants, is soon remedied by the Bitters, which gives a quietus also to rheumatism, kidney trou bles and insomnia. Perhaps the readers of the Epitaph would like to know in what respect Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is better than any other. We will tell you. When this Remedy is taken as directed, as soon as a cold has been contracted, and before it has become settled in the system, it will counteract the effect of the cold and greatly lessen its severity if not effectually cure the cold in two days time, and it is the only remedy that will do this. It acts in perfect harmon) with nature and aids nature in relieving the lungs, opening the secretions, lique fying the mucus and causing its expul sion from the air cells of the lungs and restoring the system to a strong and healthy condition. No other remedy in the markerpossesses these remarkable properties. No other will cure a cold as quickly or leave the system in as sound a condition. 50 cent and one bottles for sale by H. J. Peto.

Persons Addicted to Day-Dreaming Can 1 Not Make Life Successful. Tho reason why so many people find ! their work distasteful is because they I havo allowed themselves to become vic tims to tho habit of day-dreaming, says , tho Minneapolis Household. It is a 1 wonderful thing to bo imaginative. Tho one who is so gifted finds tho jolting along life's highway much easier to j bear than ho who stolidly endures it wnnout tne aia 01 any sort 01 an air cushion. It is wise to cultivate the im aginative faculty; but ho makes a mis take who allows that faculty to expend itself in tho narrow channel of day dreaming where it must do harm to himself and benefit no one. There aro few who are not more or less addicted to tho habit of day-dreaming. It is sort of brain disorder for wliich the patient mnst bo his own physician. Or it may bo compared to tho habit of opium eat ing, for though its effects aro not so ter rible, it is quite as hard to get rid of. It is particularly deplorable when it bo comes fixed upon the housekeeper, for it not only tends to mako her discon tented with her lot, but impresses upon her the hopelessness of all endeavor to shako oil tho burden which sho finds so wearisome. Ono may always know such a day-dreamer by tho expression of her countenance as sho goes about her work, and by tho manner of "her performance of it. Sho frets over every demand made upon hor efforts, and counts as lost evory effort which fails to bring as great rewards as sho has convinced herself ic should. Liko all habits its advances "are made so stealthily that tho victim does not heed tKem; its warn ings aro given with a silver tongue that is pleasant to listen to, and later, though its encroaches may cause displeasure, they aro so made that no complaint can bo urged against them. Tho victim be gins by wishing her work was done; there is no harm in that; sho might do so even if sho were in no dangor of bo coming a day dreamer. She then wishes she were not obliged to work at all; but what exception can bo taken to that? It is surely a very natural expression of ono who has so much to do. She thinks what her life might be, if sho were not obliged to drudge; how much moro full and beautiful it would havo been had she not put herself in her present posi tion. No doubt enters her mind that she is fitted by nature for tho ideal life tho life which is somehow to bo very bright and useful and full of inspir ation for others, but which is also to bo untrammeled by work. Such a thought is not very consistent with reason. "But if it gives her pleasure, whore lies tho harm?" is the very natural question. It is hard to see tho danger in day dream ing even when it reaches this stage. Tho patient becomes intoxicated with tho picture of that ideal life and of her self as tho center of It. Day "by day it fastens itself more securely upon her. Every annoyance causes her to lose her self in it, as tho opium cater forgets his troubles while under tho influence of tho benumbing drug. "Where is tho harm so long as it gives hor pleasure, and causes her to forget her present unhappiness?" Tho ques tion is continually presenting itself. Thero is no more reason and just as much nonsense in such questions when applied to tho day-dreamer as when ap plied to tho opium-eater. Thero is no progress, no growth, no earnest reach ing out after better things, no attempt to turn tho present unhappiness into a present joy nothing but an idle gazing at an illusion. The victim, living in her imaginary state of ease and grandeur, is suddonly called to earth by some duty moro im portunant than tho rest. How does sho bear it? The change from this fairyland of fancy to the land of reality does not tend to mako tho latter moro endurable. Tho timo spent in dreaming does not qualify tho dreamer to catch up with tho work which she thereby neglected, or mako her less impatient over the an noyances which always keep company with neglected duties. Day-dreamers do not always havo pleasant dreams. Often they pause in their work to magnify a little discom fort or trouble, until they havo imag ined themselves beggars or martyrs, un loved or unappreciated, as their differ ent dispositions dictate. An habitualday-drcamer can not mako life successful, can not contribute much to tho happiness of others, can not bo happy. Ho is forever drawing compari sons between tho actual and tho ideal which mako him dissatisfied, and dis satisfaction is contagious. Bo very suro, before you bemoan your lot, that long living in air castles has not rendered you incapable of seeing your life as it really is. A Vigorous Schoolmaster. The old Bath (Mo.) academy once had a vigorous master in the person of one Weston, who ruled in tho year 1818, and the Times relates this instanco of his method: "Ono day a boy named Russell was accused of some misdemeanor and Master Westonatonco summoned aRus sell boy beforo him. Tho youth protest ed his innocence, but tho. indignant in structor proceeded to give him a cow hiding that rnado him feel uncomforta ble for a week. Tho next day tho teacher was informed that ho had made a mistake, that it was not tho boy who had been flogged that was guilty, but his brother. So a brother of tho first suspect was called forward and treated to the same medicine as tho first. Later It transpired that neither of these was tho right ono. The third brother was a tall, stout fellow, much larger than tho toacher, and tho master declined to proceed farther, but declared that tho demands of justico had been fully sat isfied." A Peculiar Kcquest. One of tho early settlers of Oscoda County, Mich., made a peculiar request when ho died a few years ago. For somo time before his death his stock was be ing stolen, either by men or bears, and tho old man's mind was affected by his loss. Ho asked that ho bo buried stand ing, on tho east side of a tree which grow on a hill overlooking his farm, From this position he hoped to dotcct tbo thievos. ONCE FOES, NOW FRIENDS. A Touching Story or Two Veterans of tho Civil War. Two veterans of tho civil war keep bachelors' hall in a pretty New England town, says tho Dcs Moines (la.) Leader. Both are hcorocs but both aro modest; so, out of respect for their feelings, they will bo designated hero as Federal Captain Thomas and Confederate Cap tain Williams. They had been collego chums, and tho threo weeks preceding tho first shot at Charleston wcro spent by Williams at tho homo of Thomas tho samo house where Williams now docs the carving, because his host has but one arm, and whore Thomas does most of tho walking because his guest has but ono leg. As soon as it was cer tain that war was inevitable the. fricr.ds separated and went to tho frontJone donning tho blub and tho other tho gray. The war was nearly over when they first met as foes. It was on the field of ono of tho torriblo last battles. Early in tho fight, Thomas, who had become a Captain of infantry, had his right arm shattered by a fragment of a. shell that exploded above his head. In his excite ment he did not perceive how serious his wound was, but simply placed the wounded member in a sling made of his handkerchief, took his sword in his left hand and dashed to tho front again. Thobattlo grew hot and furious. A position at first held by tho Confeder ates was usurped by Captain Thomas and his company, who, by their au dacity, were drawing a heavy fire from tho men in gray. For a quarter of an hour they were unablo to advanco ono inch, and were constantly charged by a reckless company of cavalry, led, Captain Thomas soon perceived, by his friend Williams. Presently ono of these charges proved disastrous to tho Con federate Captain. Ho fell from his horso midway between tho opposing forces and lay motionless in an extrome ly dangerous spot, whero shells from a distant part of tho field were dropping evory minute. Captain Thomas saw that his friend was still alivo and made up his mind in an instant. "Come on, boys," he shouted, and dashed forward, followed by his men. Fivo men fell beforo they had ad vanced fifty yards. Still shouting en couragingly to his followers, Captain Thomas ran to whero his wounded friend lay, raised him to his shoulder and darted toward a large Tock which of fered shelter from tho flying shells and bullets. Tho rock was only a dozen paces distant, but once a shell burst al most at his feet, covering both with dirt. When tho coveted place of safety was reached Captain Thomas collapsed. A little later ho was found by his vic torious comrades lying insensible be side tho man whoso life ho had saved. Captain Thomas carried awaytho stump of an arm and Captain Williams tho stump of a leg as souvenirs of the fight; and when tho war was over thoy laughingly agreed to form a pool of sound limbs and keep bachelors' hall for tho remainder of their lives. THE VERBOSE TRAMP. One of the Fraternity Wants to Know Just "What tho Term Means. "I saw an articlo in your paper tho other day," said tho tramp as he reached tho Detroit Free Press editorial floor "an articlo about tho verboso tramp. I want an explanation. How did this tramp look?" "It was somo reporter who wrote tho article." "Well, does verboso mean that ho was a hustler?" "Hardly." "Was ho lancruid?" "Not that, oither." "Does verbose mean that ho had lost his appetite?" "No." "Run down in flesh?" "No. Verbose is verbose. It's a sort of domeanor and look hard to describe." "Am I verboso?" "No." "Is it any thing against tho pur feshun?" "No." "Won't discourage tho women' from passing out cold victuals and old clothes?" "Not a bit." "Then I'm satisfied. I didn't know but it was some now thing something to work agin us, and I wanted to know. Couldn't many of tho boys bo verboso if thoy wanted to, could they?" "No." "Then it won't spread?" "Oh, no." "All right that's all. I've dodged most every thing for twenty-two years past, and am glad I haven't got to worry over this. No verbosity here, thank you. Slay bo all right, hut unction has carried mo safely through thus far." HE WAS DISAPPOINTED. How a Colored Man Was Buncoed by nn Jusuranco Company. Shortly after a firo in a town "down South," says tho 2?ow York Ledger, a colored man called on an insurance agent and said: "Wants my money, Cap'n." "I don't owo you any money." "Ain't yesso'f do 'sho'enco agent?" "Yes, I am an insuranco agent." "Donyor owes mo money, fur my sto' burned up durin' do lato firo, sah." "You were not insured in my com pany."

Some thing peculiar in her position aroused his curiosity, and ho went near. Tho cow was dead, her head and neck wedged into tho crotch of a low apple tree.

Tho animal was standing in tho water, unablo to escape because of tho high banks of the stream, and the falls in tho stream abovo and below him. Tho negro boy spoko to tho horse and was answered by a glad whinny. Tho lad at once reported his discovery to the owner, who summoned several of his neighbors and went to the horse's .relief. Tho bank of tho creek had to be dug down, and whilo tho men worked the animal gave whinnies of delight from timo to timo by way of evincing his sat isfaction that help was at hand. When tho inclino was comploted the horso rushed up to tho top and then staggered and fell to tho ground, but he soon recovered and proceeded to hia stable. IIo had been in tho creek thirteen days without food, except the little that ho had picked from tho. almost naked hank. Tho hair on his legs all dropped off from tho long exposure, otherwise ho was soon as sound as ever. AN UNEXPECTED LOAN. A Bit of Carelessness Which Was Simply Inexcusable. neard by a Chicago Tribuno man at a club: I was on tho street tho other day with a friend when we met his wife. It I was. a stormy day; sho wanted a pair of j rubbers; said tho price was a dollar. He ' ran his hand in his pocket and said something about "unfortunate." I saw tho pickle. "Let mo lend you a dollar," , I said, and ho replied that ho would, i That morning I had put five dollars in ( ono pocket for tho necessaries of life. . In. tho other pocket I had placed one dollar for luxuries with tho' boys. I handed him out tho money andhe led his wifo away to appeaso her growing expectations. I soon discovered that I had given my friend tho live-dollar note. However, I knew that he was honest and didn't worry. I met him "several hours af tor. Ho was excited and fatigued. Ho said, in bated breath: "You gave mo fivo dollars instead of one." I said I had made that discovery, but knew it was all right "But it isn'c all right," he exclaimed, growing moro excited. "Seo hero," he continued, "I went with her in tho shoe store, sec? I says to the man: 'Give me a pair of dollar rubbers, women's size.' IIo did so, and sho put them on. I laid down tho bill you had loaned me. The clerk says: 'I will hand you the change.' That was the first intimation Lhad that tho bill was moro than ono dollar in de nomination. Tho clerk camo back and laid down four dollars. My wifo picked it up and said that was just the amount sho wanted and walked out. I owe you fivo dollars which I didn't mean to borrow, and I haven't it to pay." It put mo in a corner, because it was the only five dollars I had, and I had promised that change to my wifo. If I can square it with her I am aU right. But that's tho difficulty. EXCELLENCE OF SALT. 3Iany Ways In Which It Can Be Utilized to Advantage.
