the figure of a skull and cross bones

laced sandals. In his hand he held
a sceptre of solid gold, surmounted

King's New Discovery for Consumption and

A Somerset business man not

Spanish princess and presented to
Kings Max and Ludwig, and mark

artist and the Spanish and Bavarian
coat of arms, were sold to rich pri

the king and his yacht were sold,
the latter being intended for trans

these things, sanctified by royal

There was a bad man at Hastings
the other day He is not there now.
He is dead. He used to pour a few
slugs of whiskey into him and then
go around announcing that he was
spoiling for a fight. He met a man
who was spoiling worse, than he

The interview in London, Tues
day, between Sullivan and Mitchell
was somewhat superb. It was to
arrange for their fight, and they all
but had one on the spot before they
cut short their backtalk, and Sulli
van left, the room, his backer Phil
lips, arranging terms in his behalf.
Each siuggar called the other a liar,
and Sullivan informed Mitchell that
he himself was a gentleman and
brought up in a school of manners.
Few men would have the temerity
to tell John to his f aco he wasn't a
gentleman, but there lurks a sus
picion in the timid heart of this
country that Sullivan's complete
right to that "grand old name of
gentleman" is just barely open to

The symptoms of Billiousness are unhappily
but too well known. They differ in different
individuals to some extent. A billions man is
seldom a breakfast eater. Too frequently, 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'whito
and furred, it is rough, at all events.
The digestive system is wholly out of order and
Diarrhea or Consumption may be a symptom or
the two may alternate . There are often Hemor
rhoids or even loss of blood. There may be gid
diness and of ten headache and acidity or flatu
lence and tenderness in the pit of the stomach.
To correct all. this if not effect a cure try Green's
August Flower, it cost but a trifle and thousande
attest its efficacy.
A commercial traveler for a
liquor house has just returned from
a trip through Kansas and Iowa,
and is very well satisfied with the
business done, having taken orders
.forjmy.gjL3a&tT" of .whig.:
key. That wiiuld be a good trip in
a couple of wet states, and it only
goes to show what there really is in
prohibition. Only a very small por
tion of these' goods go to drug
stores. The "jug" business is what
counts in these dry states. Thous
ands of Iowa, and Kansas farmers
now keep a filled jug on hand all
the time, who were formerly satis
fied with several drams on the days
they went to-town. It would be as
easy to prohibit profanity as to pro
hibit drinking. The law is en
forced with great severity in some
portions of Kansas. People are in
clined te look upon the fining of a
clerk, who sold whiskey, 10,000
and sending him to the peniten
tiary for seventeen years as a
canard, butrit is gospel. Such
crazy anfeuaticaT verdicts as this
only serve to Bring the temperance
cause into contempt. If petty lar
cency was a capital offence, there
never would be any convictions.
The American mind believes with
the Mikado, that the punishment
should fit the crime.
