Ne r - votisness, insomnia, indigestion—these constitute a triple alliance that perpetually wars against man'a comfort, and robs both brain and body of tranquility. Combat tho trio for a time with Hosteller's Stomach Bitters, and it will give ground and event ually Hy the fleld. The basis of reform is the rectification of digestion, for tbe brain and nerve trouble is simply a reflex of the disturbance of that all important function. A wineglassfnl before "each meal of the national stomachic insures facile digestion, and a repetition of the plea: sant dose before retiring promotes nerve and muscle invigorating Bleep. Associated with indigestion wo usually Und biliousness and constipation. But together or independent of each other, these maladies are subjugated by the Bitters, which also remedies kidney trouble, rheumatism, neuralgia and malaria. tths AFTER THE BATH.

Gesture boa boon brought almost to a science In tbe French schools of acting. It has been argued out and reduced to positive tales which are most useful to know, and give great resource o( action alike to actor and reciter. Thua it is that gesture U a thing that may be actually studied and taught. Facial expression, In less deg'roo, U also a matter of ascertained rule. It baa, so to speaki been brought to book. Darwin bos written and Luvuter has delineated. English people who have to cultivate theso natural expressions of drama should surely not neglect such means of study. For we are not, as a nation, Rifted with the speech of gesture or of the face. The Frenchman's hand is often a tllstiuct feature, intelligible and eloquent, The Englishman's, as a rule, U only a development of the paw, aud rarely seconds hl» words with anything more than mer* empbasU. Tho Immobility of the ordinary Engli»h face has been often noted and confessed. We ara nothing if not dignified; and signifluant gesture and a very expressive play of feature are not thought, it would seem, to be very dwirabla things on thU aide of the channel. We prize highly tho excellent virtue of reti- ceaca.

Slleu In St. Louis Republic. Tlie Society for tlio Prevention of Hydrophobia and tho Reform of tho Dog Laws of London wishes to promote nn act of parliament, to settle tho dog question oncomid for nil by the enforcement of tho muzzlo and by u, system of registration and licensing. It stands pledged to the statement that rabies might bo absolutely eradicated, and that it may easily bo diminished by proper precautions. ~ In Prussia, where these precautions aro taken,-there died of hydrophobia in a particular period but two persons. In Great Britain, where they nr.i not. there died !!').- The two : cmtnn'ieH havo lilwnit UIQ fiamo "p<)pniatiiiiTr"Oui'""«Grat :misfortune) in tlio .mailer IH a, tendency to hot nnd cold fits. \Vhcn rabies is widely prevalent wo tain- pveiMiiticins; when it diminishes,, in cousutjuunco of tho precautidns, we relax them, and it breaks out again. Tlio.society would keep us at ono temperature uf rational prevention. In 188i5 twenty-so ven persons died of hydrophobia, in London alone. Tho muzzling edict of that winter reduced tho number to nino in 1880. It seems clear, that we have only to go on steadily, year by ^yeal•, to reach the Prussian liguro, or zero. Al any rate, the experiment deserves a full and a fair trial,—London News. trf" ' SII1<1 FInttory.

"You ought not to tell people that they look charming or handsome," objected tho'mentor, "It is flattery, and you don't wish to ho called a flatcrer." "But when my frii'iulsi do look perfectly lovely," persi.sled Iho enthusiast, "what shall I say? I musl say something. Now, you look a dozon years younger than yourself in that becoming— little black lace bonnet, and those strings are dears. What can I say, under such circumstances, if my honest opinion is to bo called flattery?" "Well," said Ihe older woman, relenting before an honest opinion of this sort, expressed about herself, "if you feel as though you must say something', why not eay it as if you were speaking to yourself—sort of thinking aloud?' That wouldn't seem as if you meaut to flatter a person face to face," -- "What could I say, for example?"
