You are convinced of that?" said
tho doctor, thoughtfully, stroking his

"Entirely so. Doctor Doviland-"
The doctor was silent for some sec

As he descended the stairs, Mrs. Dil

balancing both thumbs in the arm-holes
of his vest, "that I shall let him die!"
"Decause," added the disciple of
Galen, with a sly tw inkle in his merry
blue eyes, "he is determined to die
whether or not, and a man jihvays lives
the longer for having his own way."
"I don't comprehend your meaning
at all, doctor," said Mrs. Dilthorpe,
with tears in her eyes and a piteous
quaver in her voice.

Effect of Diet on Liquor Drinking.
New York 'Iraphic.
Charles Xapier. an English scientific
man, had been testing the truth of Lie
big's theory that liquor drinking is com
patible with animal food, but not with
farinaceous diet. The experiment was
tried upon twenty-seven liquor drink
ing persons, with results substantial
ing the Liebig theory. Among the
more striking instances of reform
brought about by a chancre of diet was
that of - ffPnliPman of sixtv. who had
:i(i.iif.f(1i fn iti.mnprat h.il.it

eragingonce a week. His constitution
was so shattered that he had great dif
ficulty in insuring his life. After an
attack of delirium tremens, which near
ly ended fatJilly, he was persuaded to
enter upon a farinaceous diet, which
we are Jissured cured him completely
in seven months. He seemed to have
been very thin at the beginning of the
experiment, but at the close of the pe
riod named had gained twenty-eight
pounds, being then about the normal
weight for a person of his height.
mong the articles of food which are
specified by Xapier as re-eminent for
iintagonism to alcohol are marraconi
haricot beans, dried pe;i3, and lentils,
all of which should be well boiled and
flavored with plenty of butter or olive
oil. The various cardeu vegetables
ire said to be helpful, but a diet main
ljT composed of them would not resist
the tendency to intemperance so effec
tually as one of maccaroui and farina
ceous food. From this point of view,
high glutinous bread would be a great
utility, but it should not be sour, such
acidity being calculated to foster the
habit of alcoholic drinking. A like
remark may be applied to the use of
salted food. If we inquire the cause
of ;i vegetarian's alleged disinclination
to alcoholic liquors, we
find that the
carbonaceous starch contained in the

Florence Do Laigne, who recently

is responsible for the typographical
errors in the Hawkey e?" Lean down

up the matter exactly as it is written,

makes; the proof-reader is a professor
of rhetoric and philology in an Iowa

This reminds as of an old gentleman
who lost all his front teeth, and had
the lmbit of using long and unusual
w-ords in the wrong place. When re
monstrated with by a friend and told
that he did not know the meaning of
the words he used, he laid it all on his
teeth; asserting that if he only had his
teeth as he used to have he could use
the right words in the right places.

Something New -A Rare Opportunity.
Wo have lately had brought to our
notice a new kitchen utensil, the real
merit of which entitles it to something
more than the passing notice we can
give it. We allude to the Peerless
Flour and Meal Sifter, manufac-
ed by the Peerless Sifter Company, of
Cincinnati. A Combination Sifter,
Weigher, Measurer, Mixer, Rice Wjish-
er, l-lour scoop, loinato, Pumpkin,
1- ruit, V ine, Jelly and fetarck Strainer.
Twelve distinct articles combined in
one, and is sold at a price within the
reach of every family. To purchase
separate utensils for all of the above
purposes would cost more than ten
times the amount asked for the Peer
Housekeepers will Jippreciate the
Peerless Sifter for the following rea
sons: It does away with the putting
01 ones nanus in u.e Hour, wnicn in
rapidly ; wiil
be worked so easily aud 1
silt live times as last its tiie common
sieve, and much faster and better than
any other sifter ever introduced. It is
operated with a simple and easy lever
motion, and is acknowledged by every
one to be far preferable to tlie awk
ward and unhandy rotary motion in
sifters heretofore sold. It seems to U3
that it would be no trouble for an en
ergetic ladv or gentleman in this vi
cinity to sell a Peerless Sifter to go in
to every flour bairel in this county
we know of nothing that would pay
them anything like as well, and would
recommend them to drop a postal card
at once to the Peerless Sifter Com
pany, George and Elm Streets, Cin
cinnati, Ohio, for territory and de
scriptive circulars and terms, mention
ing our paper.

We are glad to welcome another bo"k
from tho able, graceful and fjisci ra
ting pen of this prince of writer) cf
Bible literature. To all Aho have ic
rued tlie poetic, glowing pages of
" Night Scenes in the Bible," the mere
announcement of a new work will bo
hailed with pleisure. Mingling with
fie wild scenes of Gideon's Night At
tack, and tlie sad vision granted to Xt -hemiah
f the desolation of Jerusalem
is a beautiful description of tlie mid
night sim oil the coast of Norway,
within twelve hundred miles of the
North Po!e. Tho night of Betrayal
wakens the deepest emotions of loving
hearts, and we shudder at the Dark
ness of Noonday, and weep at the grave
in tli dark shadows of night fcoliri:.'
with intense vividness tho events hii
marvelous skill has depicted. Tin:
book is precious to the believer and i:
literary excellence, rare word painting,
and poetic imagery make it a very de
lightful work for universal perusal.
