what particular troubles EkOWN'l
Ikon Bittess is good for.
It will cure Heart Disease, Paral
ysis, Dropsy, Kidney Disease, Con
sumption, Dyspepsia, Rheumatism,
Neuralgia, and all similar diseases.
Its wonderful curative power is
simply because it purifies and en
riches the blood, thus beginning at
the foundation, and by building up
the system, drives out all disease.

Beorganlser of the Egyptian Army.
Baker Panlia is not a Turk but an En
glishman, arid it is stated, quondam friend
and companiou of the Prince of Vales.
He was at one time a distinguished olli
cer of cavalry in the British army, but
having taken advantage of being alone
with a young lady of his acquaintance
in a compartment of a rrilroad carriage
to assault her, was sentenced to a term
of imprisonment for this offence. Upon
his release he entered the service of the
Sultan of Turkey, and became a favorite
officer of his imperial majesty. He has
resigned his position as aid-de-camp to
the Sultan, and has promptly accepted
the task of reorganizing the Egyptian
army, for which he is singularly well
adapted. Valentine Baker, or Baker Pa
sha, iB a soldier as brilliant as capable.
His last apoin'ment is significant of the
firm grin which England has of Oriental
affairs. There is inierestin the mention
that the admirl-in-cbief of the Turkish
navy, Hobart Pasha, is an Englishman,
a son of the Duke of Buckingham.
Adelaide FhlUlpps.
Adelaide Phillipps, one of the best of
American singers, is reported to have
died at a watering place in the south of
France, where sue nas oeen spenumg
several months in the hope of regaining
her health. This news is a sad surprise
to her friends, who had but recently
heard that she was gaining in strength
and would shortly be able to reappear
upon the stae, where her presence has
been much missed. Miss Phillipps lacked
but one year of 50; she was born in Eng
land, in Shakespeare's city of Strat-ford-on-Avon,
but she was brought to
this country when she was but seven
years old, and was about as thorough an
American in all her characteristics as
she could be. She began her stage ca
rr a nrodiifv at 10 years old, but as
an actor and Binger of small parts at the
Boston Museum when she was 15 years
old. She is remembered well as playing
in a spectacular piece entitled ''The En
chanted Horse" (a predecessor of the
"Black Urook Desiue iouis nioimjci,
then the idol of women, and William
Warren, just opening uis career as co
median ; it was a composition or lx
mor'a Tins, a fnrimtten wrner. and includ
ed several bright popular pieces which
her sweet child's voice gave an addition-
al charm to. She began to study music
with Mme. Arnault, and caught the at

Jenny Llnd's word was law and gospel.
She stuuiea in .uonuuu unum
went to Italy and continued her studies,
and made her debut at Brescia in 1853. On
her return home she first appeared in
the Boston Music ha'l.in concert.in 1855,
ana began ber career as an opera singer
in New York, at the academy of music,
in 1856. Since then Miss Phillipps has
been noted not only among American
singers, but among those of the world.
She has spent many seasons In Europe,
singing and acting in the opera-houses
of PariB, Madrid, Milan, Vienna, Ant
werp, London and other English and
continental cities, and everywhere she
has won recognition. In fact her artistic
career.was from the first, one of success,
and in all places she was profoundly re
spected as a woman as well aa admired
in her art.
Adelaide Phillipps was well known
here, and had many personal friends
who will mourn her loss more deeply,
but not more honestly, after all, than the
unknown and uncounted friends she
made in her vocation. She was not a
great singer or actress, though she had
genuine quality in both lines of art. She
had a quick sympathy and a ready ab
sorption into her part, and a versatile
capacity both for melodrama and for
mocking humor that will always be ex
tremely rare. This fitted her for such
brilliant soubrette parts as that of "Ros
in." in th "Rarhar" and such extraor
dinary character personations as that of

across the table : none of that was there
now. List night's ashes adorned the
grate, the blinds and curtains were still
down, and Jo, under the impression that
night still reigned, sat in his Bwing, with,
his head poked resignedly underhiH
wing, and swung dolefully back and
forth. Whatever reflections I might
have been in, to Kitzie's credit and my
own detriment, were cut short by nine
strokes that assailed my astonished ears
from the sitting room, ano i rusneit
frantically back to tne kitchen to tnke
up my breakfast. When placed on the
table it looked tempting, I do assure
you. There were four platters of ham,
burned almost black; three dishes of
potatoes, hard as brickbats; a wire castor
lull of eggs soft as nature first made
them, for I had cooked thorn in cold
water ; a monstrous coffee-put filled with
tbe scorched beverage ; no bread, and
nothing fit to eat but the pickles. I
surveyed it solemnly, then solemnly
went up the back stairs, up-ioea to me
front room and exchanged mv rooking
fir down-town habiliments, then went
down to the parlor, where Kitzie sat at
the piano in the daintiest of white morn
ing gownB, with a square inch of lace
and some blue bows on her sunny hair.
"Kitzie Treherne," Baid I, with terri
ble solemnity, and staring fixedly at the
piano-stool so as not to see the laugh
lurking in her dimples, "you can go out
and eat your breakfast, if you want it.
I cooked so much that it's made me sick.
Patric has left, and the tea-kettle's
broken, the milk's cone, the pan's
smashed, and I broke the cat's leg. I
don't know when you'll see me again.

care, but left the locking up to Michael
and departed in haste, only stopping

would make peace if it was necessary.
The windows to my dainty domicile
were all open, and I cnuldn t resist stop

sively under the gaslight, with the crip
pled kitten in her lap; the piano was
open and there were flowers on it, and
in the room beyond was the tea-table,

Two hearts bound in a dreamy silken thrall,

Of drowsy birds that croon the whole night long;
Dark eyes, red lips, low whispers faint aud
Bush I now the summer dies there at your reet,
Ah, well 1 we change so, as the years go by ;
Sometimes a little thing, a smile, a sigh.
Will round our whole life to a different use
Will chain it faster, or will break It loose.

What manor if to one or both 'twas plsyT
The day was long, and glad and ripe with mirth
There are not many days like that on earth.
And yon are changed, and I am not the same :
And, as the eweot day dies in purple flame,

Democracy (like Christianity) is not
served best by ils own brawling advo
cates, but often far, far better, finally, by
those who are outside its ranks. I
should say that such men as Carl vie and
Emerson and Tennyson, to say nothing
ol Shakespeare and Walter Scott, have
done more for popular political and so
cial progress and liberalization, and for
individuality aud freedom, than all the
pronounced Democrats one could name.
. . . It remains to be distinctly
avowed by me that Emerson's books
form the tallest and finest growth yet of
the literature of the New World. They
bring, with miraculous opportuneness,
exactly what America needs, to begin at
the head, to radically sever her (not too
apparently at first) from the fossilisiu

man. A red oak tree, with a bise diameter
of at least three and one-half feet, was
recently cut from the farm of Sam Ev
ans, near Bethany, Ky, and sawed into
lumber. While one of the planks was
being unloaded at J B Tipton's shop,
Daniel Evans observed what he thought
to be a knot in it, and began to pick at it
with his knife. The supposed knot
proved to be a sound dogwood peg,
which, when removed, revealed a lock
of red hair. The hole had been bored
about five feet from the ground with a
three-inch auger, the lock of bair placed
in it, and the pin driven in and nicely
smoothed off. From the outer end of
the pin when the tree, in ita even pace
with time, had closed over it to the
bark were counted 215 growths, not in
