A man's greatest enemies are those tvhidi come out of his own mouth. Sotne minds fade at last, but this is fare; more rust out than fade out. Search for truth is the noblest ftceu- ftation of man; its publication a duty. Self respect governs morality; re* fcpcct for others governs our behavior. Malice and hatred are very fretting, fcnd make our minds sore and uneasy. The man who would have done sp and so if he had been there, never gets there.

" The many, who live better than others and enjoy life more, with less'; expenditure, by more promptly adapting the world's best products to tiie'iieeds of physical being., will attest the value to health of the pure liquid laxative principles embraced in the remedy,' Syrup of Figs. Its excellence is due .to its presenting in the form most acceptable and pleasant to the taste, the refreshing and truly beneficial properties of a perfect laxative ; effectually cleansing the system, dispelling colds, headaches and. fevers and permanently curing constipation. It has given satisfaction to millions and met with the approval of tho medical profession, because it acts on the Kidneys, Liver and Bowels without weakening them and it is perfectly free from every objectionable substance.

Mr. Thornton celebrated his centennial birthday recently. St. Paul's cathedral in London, which dates more than 300 years, and which was called finished in 1710,, has had much work done on it since that time as part of the original design, and even now statues are being placed in the niches in tho dome designed for them by Sir Christopher Wren. The timber line in the Rocky mountains runs as low as 9,500 feet and as high as 13,400. D It has been observed that on the south slope of Mount McClelland in Colorado, pines two feet in diameter and thirty feet high live and increase in size at an elevation of 12,400 feet. The winter at that elevation is long, the cold is intense, and the snow storms are of terrific violence. The remains of what antiquarians claim is the foundation of the house of Philip Carteret, the 'first colonial governor of New Jersey, and where the first legislature of the state met on May 20, 10(53, have been unearthed at Elizabeth by City Surveyor Meyer. It is thought that a monument will be erected to mark the spot where laws were first enacted for the government of New Jersey. TASTES DIFFER.

EXT^A W^34«4Ha QVAHTTt of BRbber Boot weavers testify this is the best they ever had,, 1 proposed to accompany the rub* Ser gatherer on his rounds, and in a !ew minutes wo Wore out of sight and'sound of camp, in a wild that Was literally trackless, writes Edward Wi Perry in Outing, in an article on how elastic gum is gathered in Mosquitea. Soon we camo to a rubber tree, its smooth gray trunk rising slender and branchless forty feet, The youth threw his burden'to the ground, and looked about until lie found a thicket of cariso, With stalks two inches in diameter and perhaps forty teet long. Tho Walls ;of this bamboo tu'e scarcely mbro than an eighth of an inch in thickness, and tho joints, fully grown, are some two feet'long. They grow iu thick clusters, frequently so dense that no animal can pass between tho stalks. Arching over they often droop until tho tops sweep the ground, and tho beautifully delicate foliage is so abundant as to form an apparently solid bank of greon. With a blow of his machete tho hulero cut down ono of those and chipped off three or four. of tho joints, each forming a long tube closed at each end. With those we returned to the rubber tree. Ho then made a small, loop of one end of tho rope we brought with us, and of the other end a largo loop passing round both the tree and his own body. He put both feet through tho smaller loop, so that his bare soles grasped-the smooth gray bark, tho ropo about his ankles serving as fulcrurns to give his feet tight hold. Then he threw tho upper loop well up tho tree trunk, loaned back, and brought his feet up till they grasped the trunk eighteen inches or so from tho ground. ; With a quick motion, he brought his body near tho trunk, and at tho same time threw up tho loop again. At the instant of its highest riso his shoulders settled back, and caught it in place. Then his feet wore hitched upward again a foot or more. Here he leaned back iu tho upper loop, bracing with his bare feet against the smooth tree, and with tho machete cut through tho bark two gashes which converged about sixteen inches below tho level at which they started. Cut after cut was made in this way until ho reached tho branches. Then as tho hulero descended ho wotted his fingers in tho milk, aud drew a straight lino down from tho lower part of one pair of V-shaped cuts to another to guide tho flowing milk by the shortest way. In tho lower pair of cuts ho placed a piece of leaf to act as a spout to carry tho milk from tho tree to tho open end of tho joint of cariso standing beneath. • The first joint was soon full, and another took its place. A plug of leaves stopped tho full one, and we wont on in search of another troo, which ho soon found, and repeated the operation of bleeding. W K on a number of trees had been tapped in tho same way, tho operator carried all the cariso joints tilled with tho milk to a convenient spot, where ho dug a small pit in the ground. After looking about a bit ho found a vino of a kind wanted, and cut from it several tender branches. These he crushed between two stones, themwashed the bruised pulp in a panful of water, making a greenish infusion with which he sprinkled thoroughly tho walls and bottom of tho pit. ' Into this tho rubber milk was poured. Jn an instant that which touched tho earth wet by the infusion, coagulated. Then the contents of tho pan wore poured into tho milk and mixed thoroughly with it, almost instantly changing it to a white, spongy mass. This was lifted out and carried to tho nearest brook, where it was washed and kneaded to express the juico of tho vino, which, the hulero explained, would soon harden the rubber so much that it would be little bettor than tuno gum, with which wicked huloros aro wont to adulterate their rubber. This mode of gathering rubber destroys tho trees in two seasons, for each cutting kills that side of tho tree on which the incisions are made. The government has enacted laws for the protection of tho trees, but laws are ignored in these wilds. In a very few years all the trees large enough to bleed will be destroyed, and fifteen or twenty will pass before the young crop now growing will be largo enough to furnish milk at a profit, Yet those trees might be bled year after year without serious injury, by using un instrument that could not cut completely through the bark, and by leaving in the wound the rubber which dries there, aad which will, if allowed to remain, protect the tree from decay. s»ia.

The nest time you ore in a melancholy mood, as you are almost certain to be if you become bilious or dyspeptic, picture to yourself the condition of a poor man who, without resources and wiU> a family on his hands, finds himself on a sick bed, Gloom obscures his narrow horizon in every direction. Unable to do any work, without means or friends capable of assisting him, with the possible prospect of continued ill health: with rent, perhaps unpaid and unpayable, the outlook for him is gloomy, indeed.. How shortsighted, then, is the man'of humble means who percerv- "ing that his health and strength are failing takes no precaution to avert the oncoming evil.

Pierce, Chief Consulting Physician to the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Institute, at Buffalo, N. Y., as follows: " I was sick two years with ' falling of tho womb' and leucorrhoea previous to taking your medicines. I took six bottles of Dr. Piorce's Favorite Prescription, and was entirely cured of both in six mouths ; it is four years this month, since I was entirely well of both those diseases and have never had any signs of their ap- hardly talcing that medicine and I think it is a God's blessing to me that I took it. I was pronounced incurable by the best doctors here -m the Wast. I gave up all hopes and made up my mind that I was to be taken away from my husband and baby of two years old. I was sick all of the time —could not eat anything at all. In one week v after beginning tho use of tho ' Favorite Prescription 1 my stomach was so much better that I could eat anything: I could see that I was gaining all over, and my husband then went and got me six bottles ; I took three of them and my stomach did not bother mo any more. We sent to you and got the People's Common Sense Medical Adviser, and found my case described just as I was: wo did what the book told us, in every way ; in one month's timo I could see I was much better than I had been; we still kept on just as tho book told us, ana iu three mouths I stopped taking medicine, and to-day, I can proudly say I am a well women, yes, am well, strong and healthy. When I began to take your medicine my facu was poor and eyes looked dead. I could not enjoy myself anywhere, I was tired and sick all the time, I could hardly do my house-work, but now I do that and tend a big garden, help my husband aud take in eewing."
