What is needed is a medicine that. In effectually opening the liowels, corrects tiie costive habit and establishes a natural daily action, Bucli an aperient is found iu Ayer's Pills, which, while thorough in action, strengthen as well as stimulate the bowels and excretory organs. " For eight years I was afflicted with coiw stipation, which at hist became so bad that the doctors could do no more for me. Then I began to take Ayer's J'ills, ami soon the bowels became regular and natural in their movements. I am now in excellent health." Wm. II. Del-aucett, Dorset, Out. " When I feel the need of a cathartic, I take Ayer's Pills, and find them to be more Effective than any other pill I ever took." Mrs. I?. C, Gruhb, Burwellville, Va. " For years I have been subject to consti pation and nervous headaches, caused by de rangement of the liver. After taking various remedies, 1 liave become convinced that Ayer's Pills are the best. They have never failed to relieve my bilious attacks in a short time; ami I am sure my system retains its tone longer after the use of these Pills, than has been the case with any other medicine I have tried."

Ue drew near and listened to what the farmers were saying. "Well, John," said one, "what do you think of itV" "It's pretty good," said the other, "but there's one thing about it that strikes rne as a little mite queer." "What's that?'' "Why, he's got Eve with a Rhode Isl and greening in her hand." "Well, what of it?" "Hum! Seeing that the first Rhode Island greening was raised in this cen- tur3T, I don't quite see how they could have had them m paradise!" "No greenings!"' exclaimed the other, contemptuousl'; "how do 3011 suppose they could have got along iu the Garden of Eden without Rhode Island green ings?" Youth's Companion. Safe Sheep Stealing. Among the guests at the Palace ia Joseph Cohen, of Red Bluff, who is credited with owning nearly or quite half of that portion of the state l'ing north of Ynba county. Sheep and cattle form the greater portion of Mr. Cohen's wealth aside from his landed interests, and it is said that in order to acquit a man who has been arrested for sheep or cattle stealing it is only necessary to prove that they were stolen from Joseph Cohen. "At one time," said United States At torney Garter, "I was emplo3ed by Mr. Cohen to transact a portion of his legal business, and among other things I had to assist in the prosecution of men for stealing sheep. I can truthfully say that I do not know of a single case where a man was convicted by a jnry when it was proved bj- the defense that the prop erty had originally belonged to Cohen."
