“For several years,” pays John Park

winter, l have been troubled with a
painful swelling of the feet, which the
fhysicians cUitned was rheumatic gout,

I commenced using Chamberlain's Pain
Balm. The first application reduced
the swelling and lnfiamation, and the

Mich., and are blessed with a daughter,
four years old. Last April she was
taken down witli Measles, followed with
a dreadful cough and turning into a fever.
Doctors at home and at Detroit treated
her, but in vain; she grew worse rapidly,
until she was a mere “handful ot bones”.
—Then she tried Dr. Kind’s New Dis
covery and after the use of two and a
half bottles, was completely curid. They

While Minnesota is one of the most
healthy States in the Union, it is one
of the worst for colds, owing to the se
vere winters. Many of the druggists
there make it a lule to give their cus
tomers just what they ask for; hut
when they come hack and say it did
no good, they almost invariably recom
mended Chamberlain’s Cdugli Remedy
after other leading cough preparations
failed to do any good, and always with
the best results. We can always rely
upon that remedy, as it is sure to effect
a cure. It has no equal for children;
especially in cases of whooping cough.”

STRENGTH AND HEALTH.
If you are not feeling strong and
healthv, try Electric Bitters. If “La

use Electric Bitters. This remedy acts
directly on Liver, Stomach and Kidneys,
gently aiding those organs to perform
their functions. I* you are afflicted
with Sick Headache you will find speedy
and permanent relief by taking Electric
Bitters. One trial will convince you
that this is the remedy you need. Large

When the publishers decided to
issue The Journal twice a week
at the same price of the old week
lies, $1.00 per year, they shuck
just what the public wanted—
something between the old-fash
ioned weekly aud the high-priced
daily. The success of The Semi
Weekly Journul has been imme
diate and contiuued. It has dis
tanced every one of its once-a-week
rivals. It doesn’t take long to
convince people that a good live j
paper every Tuesday and Friday
is better than only one a week, j
especially when you appeal to their
pocket books, and give it to them
at the same price. Readers will
testify that it is almost as good ns
a daily. The markets twice a
week are worth the money. Four
complete novels each year by
“The Duchess,” Miss Braddon,
and other widely known authors,
are w’orth the dollar. Its legisla
tive news is its strong point just
now. It is wide-awade, spends
money for news, aud is always in
the lead. You can see its supe
riority over the old-fashioned
weekly. Everyone who subscribes

Into the world from far away.
Where the year U always toned to May,
And the wind sounds soft as a lark aloft,
A conjurer came once on a day.
Many a mystic spell he knew
Wherewith to turn gray skies to bine;
To make dull hours grow bright as flowers.
And tasks that aro old turn light as new.
A touch of his magic wand, and lot
From empty hands sweet favors flow.
And pleasures bloom in lives of gloom
Where naught but sorrow seemed to grow.
Out of the stormy sky above
He brings white Peace, like a heavenly dove.
His might is sure, and his art is pure.
And his name-1 lie conjurer’s name—is Love

After Dinner Speaking.
An after dinner speech should nevei
be wholly facetious, unless the speakei
is very facetious indeed and cuts hie
speech short. It should not be frivolous,
even when the speaker is full of frivolity.
It must not under any circumstances be
silly, though there be people who laugh
at silliness. It must not be too long
winded, or highly exciting, or overheavy,
or ultra argumentative, or entirely sta
tistical, or in the least rancorous. An
after dinner speech should be appropriate .
to the occasion and delivered on time, j
It may contain some essential thoughts,
some strokes of humor, some scraps of j
knowledge, some bits of fancy, some i
sound reasons, some good whims, some j
green dressing and a little fat.
Every ablehodied man of New York is
apt to be an atter dinner speaker some
time in his life. It is possible that as
many as 5,000 after dinner speeches have
been made here during one winter sea
son. One man has a record of 10 of them
for a single week, three of them for one
We have heard some tiptop after din
ner speeches, a few. We have heard
others that were wearisome, inappropri
ate, exasperating, enfeebling or foolish.

“Well, thank heavens, I am plain
Mary Ann again,” declared a young
woman to a sympathizing friend on one
of the cross town cars yesterday. “I did
so hate that name—Luella. Missus said
Mary Ann wouldn’t do at all. She
called it ‘outre’ or something like that.
She declared that I must be given some
romantic name that would sound pretty
for calling. So 1 have been Luella for
half a year, and I'm heartily glad that 1
left her and am going to Mrs. North
west’s.” The other girl gave a horrified
look at mention of this name. “But, my
dear,” she exclaimed, “I worked for Mrs.
Northwest, and I know all about her.
She has a daughter named Mary, and it
will never do for you to be Mary too
She called me Maizie, and she’ll probab

other ridiculous name.” Then both
Books Which Are Not Books.
In this catalogue of books which are
no books—biblia-abiblia—I reckon court
calendars, directories, pocketbooks (the
literary excepted), draught boards bound
and lettered on the back, scientific treat
ises, almanacs, statutes at large, the
works of Hume, Giobon, Robertson,
Beattie, Soame Jenyns and generally all
those volumes “which no gentleman’s
library should be without," the histories
of Flavius Josephus (that learned Jew)
and Paley’s “Moral Philosophy.” With
these exceptions, I can read almost any
thing. I bless my stars for a taste so cath

A Famous Gold Nugget.
On the 18th of August, 1866, a monster
piece of gold was taken from the Monu
mental mine, near Sierra Buttes. This
giant nugget weighed 1,596 troy ounces
and was estimated to be worth $30,000.
The mine was owned by William A. Far
rish & Co. The nugget was afterward
sold to R. B. Woodward of San Francisco,
for $21,636.63, and was placed on exhibi
tion at the famous Woodward gardens.

Aii Accommodating Street Car Line.
The street car system of Tallahassee,
consisting of one car, is operated by a
“nigger and a mule.” both of whom live
only to please the people. If the car
happens to be going one way and a pas
senger wants to go in the opposite direc
tion, he has only to say so, and the mule
is immediately hitched to the other end
and the car started in the desired direc
tion.—New York Tribune.
Talking Away From the Subject.
When Frederick Robertson of Brigh
ton, the great preacher who had written
much about Tennyson's poems, and for
whom the poet had a high regard, first
called upon him, “I felt,” said Tenny
son, “as if he had come to pluck out the
heart of my mystery, so I talked to him
about nothing but beer.”
Men of sense often learn from their en
emies. It is from their foes—not their
friends—that cities learn the lesson of
building high walls and ships of war,
and this lesson saves their children, their
homes and their properties.—Aristoph

h'ut Torpedo Boat*,
The famous torpedo boatbuilder at
Elbing, Schichau, has just attained an
unprecedented speed even for this class
of vessel, torpedo boats built by him
for the Russian and Italian governments
having reached 274 knots on an hour's
run at sea. The new British boats are
to be 200 tons displacement, while the
Russian boats are 120 tons, ro that the
former may do better by reason of great
er power and greater size. The length
of Schichau's boat is 152 feet 6 inches,
the beam 17 feet 5 inches. She may car
ry 40 tons of coal in her bunkers. On
trial, however, she had only 20 tons cn
board. The small guns carried weighed
2-J tons; the torpedo armament, 0 tons;
the crew, provisions, stores and firearn is,
44 tons; drinking water, 2-J tons; engine
and boatswain’s stores and reserve parts,
44 tons; so that all the movable parts
come to 20 tons, making, with coal. 40
The vessel and the machinery are
therefore very light. The shell plates
are barely a quarter of an inch thick.
There are two locomotive boilers, pro
tected by the coal bunkers, supplying
steam at 195 pounds pressure to h: h
speed engines. The guaranteed speed
was to be 20} knots in the open sea,
while on trial the vessel actually made
274, or, to be precise, 27.4 knots, as a
mean of one hour’s steaming at sea.
Schichau promises even higher results

Cheaper to Build a New Road.
The Pennsylvania railroad proposes to
shorten the distance between this city
and New York by constructing a cutoff
25 miles in length from New Brunswick
to a point on the outskirts of Jersey City.
The line was laid out three or four years
ago, and charters were procured cover
ing the route, and last week a license
was taken out for the construction of a
bridge over the Passaic river. The route
is almost a direct line and will avoid the
cities of Rahway, Elizabeth and Newark.
It will be used exclusively by express
trains, an improved local service being
established for the convenience of trav
elers to and from the cities mentioned.
The advantage of the new line consists
not so much in the shortening of the dis
tance, but in the fact that through travel
will not be interfered with by local
trains or municipal restrictions as to the
rate of speed in city limits. An enormous
number of local passenger trains are run
between Jersey City and Rahway, and a
great many run through to New Bruns
wick. Although the road is 4-tracked
all the distance the facilities are not ade
quate, and as it would cost a large sum
to put in two more tracks it has been
decided to build an entirely new road for
25 miles. When this cutoff is completed,
it will be possible to reduce the running
time half an hour.—Philadelphia In
The Careless American People.
The delays in delivering the electoral
returns of the states to the vice presi
dent, and the shabby and imperfect con
dition in which some of them make their
appearance, only illustrate how careless
the American people are about the con
duct of their elections. The nation works
itself into a perspiration during a cam
paign, and the two parties are ready
apparently to shed each other’s blood.
But just as soon as the voting is done
with all excitement evaporates, and it is
hardly possible to center public attention
even on the most glaring frauds.
If some of the efforts spent in cam
paigns were used in securing an honest
return %of the vote, elections would re
flect more accurately the will of the
people. There does not appear to be
enough care to see even that the forms
for electing a president are rightly ob
served. Verily the American people trust
a good deal to their common sense.—
All Electric Road For Rrussels.
A scheme is well advanced for provid
ing Brussels with an underground elec
tric railway similar to the South London
line. The railway will have no fixed
terminus, but will be arranged similar
to the Inner Circle line, having 11 sta
tions at the most important points of
the city. No locomotives will be em
ployed, but each train will consist of
only one first and second class composite
bogie carriage, to carry 40 passengers,
with a compartment in front in which
the electric traction gear will be ar
ranged. It is proposed to run 11 such
cars in each direction and to work the
traffic by the automatic electric "block
system, as adopted on the Liverpool
Electric railway. The lifts at each sta
tion will be operated by electric power.
A Question From the Collin.
Peter Johnson, an aged colored man,
died a few days ago at Elkton. Friends
watched over the corpse till Wednesday.
One of the women who were watching
the corpse procured a towel and some
cold water and began to bathe the brow
of the supposed dead mau. She was
startled to see signs of life, and all the
colored people were thrown into a state
of terror by the negro raising liis head
from his coffin pillow and inquiring what
was the matter. The aged darky was
taken from the coffin and is rapidly re
gaining health.—Cor. Philadelphia Rec
