A Terrible Visitant. . > '' Pain is always a terrible visitant, and often domiciles ifeelf with one for life.: This infliction is preventable, in cases of rheumatism/by & timely resort to Hostetters's Stomach Bitters, •which checks tho encroachments of this obstinate and dangerous malady at the outset: The term "dangerous" is used advisedly, for rheumatism is always liable to attack the vital organs and terminate life. .No' testimony is more conclusive aud concurrent than that of physicians who testify to tho excellent effect of the Bitters in this disease. Persons .incur .a wetttag in rainy or snowy weather, and who are exposed to draughts, should uso the Bitters as a preventive of ill effects. Malaria, .dyspepsia, liver and Iddney trouble, nervousness and debility are also among tho ailments to which this popular medicine is adapted. For the Jn- flrmities, soreness and stiffness of the aged it is highly beneficial. / .. ' Bettor Than a String. ' ' , Mother— Johnny!

The average inah pictures the Sahara as a vast sea of sand, for the most-part below 4 thd saa level, across which the 1 camel speeds before the poison blast of the simoon from oasis to oasis. Schemes of flooding the Sahara have 'come before the pub* lie occasionally, and we have read ac* counts of tho vast inlaad sea which might bs forj&ned, rivaling the M^diter- raneaa in'*size, giving a southern coast to "Morocco and Algeria, and admitting steamers directly to the wealthy state of the Soudaa. The Sahara, as known to the geographer, corresponds badly, with this conception, for, in fact, there is no risk of tfio ''ship of the desert" over being supplanted by the ships of the sea. Fetf parts are below sea level,, and they are small'and scattered. In the interior the desert is a plain high above sea leVel, covered with vast dunes of red sand in many parts; in others it is an elevated plateau with lofty mountain ranges of bare rocks intersected by stony valleys. It is arid) save, when a spring bubbles up and'gives"rise to a small oasis of grass and palm trees. The Sahara proper is unknown except for a few trade routes regularly traversed by Arabs and Occasionally by adventurous Europeans. These utilize the oases a6 resting places,' 1 stepping stones, 'as it were, and : keep up communication between the wealthy Mohammedan states . round Lake Chad in the south and Tripoli, Tunis, Algiers^or Morocco on the Mediterranean. Between the trade routes all is a bank of sand or barren rock. Exploration is only possible when water, as well as food, 1 can bo carried, and this condition has practically,stopped all attempts at discovery for tho present, on account of the great expense and the purely scientific nature of the. possible return. A railway running from the French possessions on tho Mediterranean across the desert to Timbuctoo, the scarcely known trade center near the Niger, is talked, of. Such a : line may be constructed in the future, but the dim- culties are enormous; much greatev than those overcome by the llussians in. the Transcaspian lino through the deserts of Central Asia. . - Men, like books, .have at each- end a blank leaf— childhood, and old age, •' Coe'H CougU Balaam ' Is tho oldest ami best/ It will break up n, Cold quick- cr than (nothing else.

As a large proportion of 'those who perform this duty are women, this will be one of the first instances on record of women becoming policemen. It is proposed to have them appointed by ^the mayor under ail act of assembly relating to special and private policemen, so as to better enable them to pras erve, order around the building and protect the school property. .

Excellent pianos may ba bought in Europe at perhaps two-thirds the cost of a Hke instrument here, and even individuals can import pianos to an advantage in spite o£ tho. .tariff. But a fact that works' pretty, eil'ectually. to protect tho home manufactur'ar is that either the American climate or the usual steam heat tends to destroy the imported piano, so that oven the temptation of saving from $200 to $500 on the first cost does • not induce many persons to take the risk of an instrument that cannot stand the climate.

"Our country if right, should bo kept right; if wrong, should be .put right," is a political maxim which paraphrased applies to other conditions of life; thus: our health if right, should be kept right; if wrong, should be put right, especially in -bodily ailments, such as pains and aches, which St. Jacobs Oil promptly cures. Many out. of work should heed to give it a chance to cure and it will give them a chance to go to work cured. Another adage is: "he best who doeth well."
