How's Your Liver? Is the Oriental salutation, knowing that good health cannot exist without a healthy Liver.

Gorgeous Eastern Paceunt—A Day on Wtolch Every One Wears a Urn net Nevr Suit of Clothes—The Sliuh's Acl- dren. 1 * to th« People. [COPYRIGHT, 1SOO. BY J. TV. JOHNSOX,] "What :ire you about, Hassan?" I said one pleasant eveuing ra March to a Persian servant. He -,vas standing- holding 1 his bunds over his face while one of his fellou's named Ah Ashbur was turning- him urqpnd slowly. Alee, looking- at me, said mechanically, "Bally, Sahib (yes, sir,)" and stopped, hesitating 1 . 1 sa.w that .some peculiar ceremony was going on which Uie.y did not want interrupted, and waited ;ind watched. Alee gradually moved Ihissan. around until he was fairly turned to the west, with the new moon directly before him. On being- 'informed of this fact Hassan muttered something- to himself for a minute, then withdrew his h::nds and looked lit the moon with a. slight bend of the head. These men were both Mohammedans; but they were also Persians and descended from the old (ire-worshipers from whom it was evident they had inherited some vestig-cs of the religion, of Zoroaster, of which the scene i had just witnessed was undoubtedly apart. Persians stoutly deny that any Zoroastrianism practices are raiug-led with their Mohammedan belief. I'.utone only has to look_at their Ne\vJ Y'ear's customs in order to discover how curiously the two religious are blended in their usages. No Ivooz, or Persian Xcw Year, comes at the time of the spring- solstice when the sun crosses the line. This is a dis- tinctive.recognition of the sun as a being- ^residing- over human destinies. The Ko Kooz is indeed a great occasion with Persians, a season of universal rejoicing 1 , of visiting, festivity and cessation from, business for the period of ten entire days. For weeks before the groat event they are engaged in preparing for its coining, if f or no other reason because even 1 Persian, be it man, woman or child, expects to come out then in a brand new suit of clothes. Those who have not the ready money for the occasion place jewels, embroideries or other choice articles in the .hands of the del- lals or itinerant merchants to sell for them'and great bargains may be picked up at that time. Of course the weather is bound to be fine, for the short winter is over, the roses are all in bloom, and for sis mint. His Majesty then burns.incense oil a brazier. The royal astrologer in the meantime is carefully studying his instruments watching- the expected transit. As soon as the event is announced the Shah seizes a magnificent Koran lying- on a cushion before him and Bide'rjf the city walls. He lias a beautiful pa-\<lion -there built in two stories with separate latticed balconies for his wives. Spacious tents of embroidered stuffs are spread around for the benefit of the courtiers. The course is circular, a little over a mile long-, and the horses go around six times in each race The presses it reverently to his forehead, races are running matches, as trotting lips and bosom; he then turns to the Mollahs and earnestly proclaims: ' 'Mom- barek bawshed!—may it be propitious to you!" A priest then arises and chants a solemn -invocation to the Almighty. Each courtier, according to rank, next approaches and kneels before his sovereign, receives from his hands a share of the new coin, and retires from the hall, until all are gone and the Fving is left THE VIZIEB-I-LASKEr.

THE SHAB OF PERSIA. months at least there will be little or no change. The evening before, after sunset, the.people gather around heaps of brushwood placed in a row in the gardens, set.fire to them and then leap over them in succession. Does not this remind one of the statement in Scripture that the Jews when following the idolatries of neighboring nations "caused their children to pass through the fire?" This scene is provocative of much mirth, as one after another awkwardly jumps over the burning bushes and tumbles sprawling this or that way in his anxiety to escape being burned. The hour when the snn crosses the line, be it day or night, is the momentous period'of No Kooz, and is celebrated by an Impressive ceremony:at the palace. As the hour approaches, the high officers and nobles of the realm gather in the great throne room or audience chamber, -where, surrounded by the trophies of past ages, the Shah gives audience to his courtiers. Arrayed in their costliest robes they assemble and range themselves on each side of the hall according to rank. First in order are the litollahs or prelates, who seat themselves on the tesselated floor Persian fashion, that is, on their knees and heels. Next to the Mollahs follow the uncles of the Shah, the Sedr Azem, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, and the Minister of War, the last two facing each other. Then follow other high dignitaries, including the official head of the Khajar tribe, to which the present dynasty belongs. All remain standing except the Mollahs. -Then, between the double row of dig-nitaries, the Shah slowly proceeds and seats himself on a carpet of pearls before the peacock throne. Then the chief of the Khajars by order of the Shah goes from one to the other followed by servants bearing trays of small silver coins from which each one present receives a pinch of coin in order that they may welcome alone in his glory. To me .there is something extraordinarily impressive and original in this custom of leaving the Shah alone in his audience chamber. This'grantl ceremony, which in its observance of the sun's crossing and by the presentation of fruits of the earth evidently far antedates the Mohammedan conquest, is only very rarely seen by Europeans :ind Christians. About aa hour before noon of the same Ja3 r , the .Shah receives the diplomatic corps, who go in all the state they can mustur to oiler the congratulations of the season. I dare say his Majesty smiles when he sees them for he knows that at least three distinct dates for tha New Year are observed by the nations which have legations at Teheran. The Rtissian, the Ottoman and the English Ministers, for example, each has a separate day for celebrating the time when the world began to be, all of which shows how perfectly well, with what absolute correctness, the precise date of that important event has been ascertained. It would be money in tho Shah's pocket probably as well as of the Ministers if there -were more doubt on the .subject, because so long as it continues to be a fact that the world was created on four different days different ceremonial occasions must be observed at the court of Persia. On the morning of each of these New Years twelve servants in scarlet livery appear at a legation bearing on their heads trays heaped with coefectionery. The trays are laid on the pavement before the parties of the legation where,-the weather being fine, they remain some days as evidence of the bounty of the Shah. But the Min- ( ister who receives this royal gift is in turn bound by the obligations of courtesy to present each of the bearers of the confectionery with - a present in money. Therefore we say that as Nursted-Deen, Shah, is a man of shrewd -wit he doubtless smiles to himself a sarcastic smile as he reflects on the various birthdays of this terrestrial ball. After the diplomatic reception of the No Kooz is over his Majesty, attended by his oldest son, proceeds to hold a popular audience in one of the pavilions in the gardens of the palace, one of the few occasions %hen he seems to come in actual contact with the people and recognizes the mutual character of their interests. .Ho occupies • the upper end of a marble throne shaped like a raised platform and supported by carved lions. Be sits on.his knees with a cushion of velvet embroidered with gems at his back, and faces the garden and the people. Files of soldiers are ranged on either side of an inJmense tank between the avenues, and around them swarm the people.. A jewelled pipe is presented to the Shah which he smokes with zest before hia subjects. One of the great court dignitaries then presents him with the congratulations of'the season in the is not a favored ga.it with Oriental horse• men. Tlie Shah enters a number of horses and prizes are given. The Arabian station which he presented to the United States "Legation had won . severahprizes at those races and ever- after whenever he caught sight of the race course it was difficult to hold him in because-he became so excited at the memory of his former triumphs. When the State ceremonials and pageants of No Kooz «are over then the people abandon themseves to unrestrained jollity and social intercourse. The • bazars ai-e cleared and every one keeps open house, having, according to his means, confectioner}' and sherbets spread on the rug or table of the re; ception room for the visitors who call to exchange the compliments of tlie season. With the wealthy it is no small burden to entertain at No Kooz, for they must be on hand to receive visitors who announce their coming days in advance and also pay considerable sums in fees to the servants who bring gifts to them from other gentlemen, as well as distribute largesses to their own servants. The -last day of the No Kooz is perhaps the most remarkable in Oriental social life. All barriers of rank seem to be let down for the occasion. As there are no public parks, every grandee throws open his grounds to the people who surge in from every quarter and roam with full liberty in every part of the gardens, being treated with marked courtesy by the proprietor. All are dressed in new garments and the scene is gay enough; and yet everywhere perfect propriety is preserved as if the people felt that the national reputation for orderly bearing was in question. The tinkle of the guitar, the beat of the rebeck are heard on all hands, and merry songs from merry hearts, but there is no license nor disorder apparent. On that da.y and that day alone in Persia does aPersian'walk abroad with his wife as one may see man and wife walking in Europe engaged in genial conversation and sharing- the festivities of the day. It is.a day which Persian wives love to anticipate and to look back to as indeed a white day in their otherwise secluded We are a.patient people—the ox is nowhere in comparison. We buy lamp-chimneys by the dozen; they go on snapping and popping and flying in pieces; and we go on buying the very same chimneys year after year. Our dealer is willing to sell us a chimney a week for every lamp we burn—a hundred or more a year—and we plow for him, pay him for goading us. Macbeth's " pearl top " and "pearl glass" do not break from heat; they are' made of tough glass. As likely as not our dealer would rather his chimneys would break; " it's good for the business," says he. He buys the brittlest ones he can get. " What are you going to 3o A,,4. ^4. i " about it?

'"Fidgets," or an uneasy;feeling at night, particularly in the lower limbs, -is a very common symptom of nervous dyspepsia- To understand the cause, one must know something about the nervous system. Tha spinal cord passes down from the head sending branches to various parts of the body. On either side of the spinal cord is a chain of ,nerves called the sympathetic ganglia. 01 these the solar plexus is connected •chiefly with the stomach and the luia- bar ganglia, with the small intestines. This last named sends two large branches to each limb. If there is any irritation of the lumbar ganglia through indigestion of fobd in the small intestines, its reflex action is felt in the limbs through, their connection with the lumbar ganglia. Coldness of the extremities is attributable to the same.cause.
