Nervousness, insomnia, indigestion—these constitute a triple alliance that perpetually wars against man's comfort, and robs both brain and body of tranquillty. Combat the trip for a time with Hosteller's Stomach Bitters, and it will give ground and eventually fly the field. The basis of reform is the rectiQcation of digestion, for the brain, and nerve trouble is simply a reflex of the disturbance of that all important function. A wineglassfnl before each meaf of the national stomachic insures facile digestion, and a repetition of the plea sant dose before retiring .promotes nerve and muscle invigorating sle'ep. Associated with indigestion we usually find 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 NEXT. -.: From Jlnlinaman. Sept.

In the last volume of the "Educational Series" on "The Development of the Intellect" Mr. 11. W. Drown lias presented a conspectus of the observations of Professor Preyer on the mind of the child, which shows chronologically the gradual development of the senses, intellect and will of the growing child, and presents La a condensed form tho result of a great number of careful observations It is recorded that sensibility to light, touch, temperature, smell and taste are present on the first day of infant life. Hearing, therefore, is the only special sense which is not active at this time. The child hears by the third or fourth day. Taste and smell are senses at first most active, but they are not differentiated. General organic sensations of well being or discomfort arc fult from the first, but pain and pleasure, as mental states, are not noted till at or near the second month. The first sign of speech in tho shape of utterance of consonant sounds is heard In tho latter pait of the second month, these consonants being generally "m," "r," "g," or "t." All the movements of the eyes become co-ordinate by the fourth month, and by this time the child begins to have the "feeling of self," that Is, he looks at his own hands and looks at himself in the mirror. The study of. the child's mind during. tho first year shows conclusively that ideas develop and reasoning processes occur before there is any knowledge of words or language; though it may bo assumed that the child thinks in symbols, visual or auditory, which aro clumsy equivalents for words. By the end of the year the child begins to express itself by sounds; that is, speech begins. Tbo development jf this speech capacity is, according to Preyer, in accordance with the development of the intellectual powers. By the end of tho second year the child's power of speech is practically acquired. FOR RHEUMATISM. . Tiuralc*.

ITic roportor i askwl Mr. lidisoh if it was true that ho had invented :i machine by the aid'of which u tnnn in New York would lio able t<i see yvcrythihg that his wife wasdoin^.in 1'aris. "I don't lcno\v,"H:ii'.l Mr. Mison, laugh- Ing, "that that would he a real benefit to humanity. The women certainly would protest. lint, speuUing seriously, I am at work on an invention which will til^ low a man in Wall struct not only to telephone ton friend in tho Central park, but to sec that friend while he ia chatting telephonically with him. This invention would be useful and 'practical, and I see no reason why it should not soon become n reality, nnd one of the first things that I shall do when 1 get back to America will be to set up this contrivance between my laboratory and my telephone workshops. Moreover, 1 have already obtained satirjfautory results in reproducing images at that distance, which is only about 1.000 feet. It would be ridiculous to dream of seeing any one between New York and Paris. The round 'form of the earth, if there were no other difficulty in the way, would make the thing impossible." Speaking of the '-phonograph, the reporter asked if it had reached its highest degree of perfection. "Almost. I think.' said Mr. Edison, "in tlie.lnst inslrume.nts -turned out of my workshops. You must know that the ordinary phonograph employed in commerce does not begin to compare with the latest machines that I use inuiy private experiments. With the latter 1 can obtain a sound powerful enough to reproduce phrases of a speech that can be heard perfectly by a largo audience. My last ameliorations were with the as pirate sounds, which aro the weak point of the graphophone. For seven months I worked from eighteen to twenty hours a day upon the singlo sound 'specia.' 1 would say to the instrument 'specia,' and it would always say "pecia," and I couldn't make it say anything else. It was enough to inulco me crazy. But 1 stuck to it until I succeeded, and now you can reud a thousand words of a newspaper at the rate of 150 words a minute, and the instrument will repeat them tp you without an omission. You can imagine the difficulty of the task that I accorhplished when I tell you that the impressions mado upon tho cylinder are not more than one millionth part of an inch iu depth, and are completely invisible even with the aid of a microscope." . Reporter—And what now discoveries will bo made in electricity? Mr. Edison—Ah, that would bo difficult to say. We may some day come upon one of' the great secreta of nature. I am always on tho look out for something which will help me to solve the problem of navigating tho air. I have worked hard upon this subject, but I am very much discouraged. We may flnd something new before that comes, but that will con 10. Mr, Edison further said that the great development of electricity will come when wo lind u inoro economical method of producing it.

A handsome mahogany case, containing a silk flag with gold bullion fringe, occupies nearly nil the available space of the wall in tho southern part of the room of Capt. Cobangh nt the treasury department. Every visitor to the department ia shown the flag iind attention is generally invited to a tear in. one of its strips. The flag formerly belonged to the Treasury guards, a volunteer organ- • ization formed during the war for emergencies that of the nation. After the lull <•( Richmond, and tho night that I'resilient Lincoln •went to Ford's theatre, the flag, which waa then nttaohcd to a Kliiiit I-OHCWOIH! flagstaff, waa borrowed l>y John T. Ford for decorative''Uses iiuoiil the liux occupied by tho pivaidi'tit. When the assassin fired the shot who.-n' echo was heard- » throughout llu- civilix.'.nl worl.l ho leaped from the box, anil i:i doing su caught tho rowel of his spur in the .silken folds of the etarry banner protruding from Iho president's bos. That slip probably cost Booth his life, for the Hag tripped him and caused tho broken log which impeded him in his efforts to escape and rendered him an easy victim for Sergt, Boston Corbett'srilh- ball. Subsequently tho flag was returned to (he- treasury do-' partment, and during the fow days that President Johnson hail his odicf- in the jJepartment the flag was in a corner of tho apartment. It was removed, however, by Capt, Cobaugh to its present resting place, and the staff was made - tnlo'threo canes and presented toollicialg, of the treasury departiiuMit.—.Washing- ton Letter in Philadelphia News. Unllmlloil Credit. A country schooliuiritrcss hud much ' trouble with her pupils, and to avoid it made her examples pluced lii'foro them i of on .explanatory chnractftr or illustrative. Tho effect WUH often unexpected. In goin^ over their usual reading lesson' a line was chosen by thu lady upon which to test tho merits of tho scholars. Tho lino read, "And ho was a man of unlimited credit in business." "Now, John, can you tell mo what ia meant by the'woTd credit when used aa in this lesson?" / Thus she addressed one of tho stumbling blocks of tho school. "I duuno, niarru," said Johnny, looking sheepish. "You dou't knowl" said the- mistress. 'Well, look' here. Supposing your mother was to coiuo short of money at the latter part of the week, and needed provisions, etc,, now what would sho do?" Sho waa satisfied that her illustration was plain, and awaited the correct reply, and it came thus: '-Well, inarm," replied .Johnny, "I dtmno what she would do, unless she pawned dud's Sunday coat." The subject was instantly dropped, and the teacher has lost all faith in that stylo of illustration. —Young Ladies' Journal. Chlnosu IderiH. Speaking of tin- best method of government Confucius said: "Follow the calendar of .the Hsia dynasty; employ the state chariot of Yin:wear the crown of Chou, and let your tuutijc be that of Shun, with posture accompaniment.
