In this city, whero thoy nro compounded nud

this lllttcrs la free from tho objections urged

Induced from their use, they cannot malto d runic

when some nlcoliollc stlmulaut Is roqulrtd In
connection with tho Toiilo properties of Iho
Hitlers. Each boltlo of tho Tonic, contains mito
bottle of the Hitters, combined with puroHANTA
CUUX HUM, nnd flavored in such n manner that
the extreme blttemessof tho bitters lsovercome,
forming a preparation highly agreeable and
pleasant to the palato, and containing tho medi
cinal virtues of the Hitters. The price of tho
Touto Is 41.50 per Hottlo, which many persons
liluk. too high. They must take Into considera
tion that the stimulant used Is guaranteed to bo
of a pure qnallty. A poor article could bo fur
nlslled at n cheaper price, but Is It not better to
pay a llttlo moro and hnvo n good article? A
medicinal preparation should contain nono but
the best Ingredients; nud they who exiect tn

it will most certainly bo cheated.

Tlicro H no record of Cain's court
ship or wedding. Ilowover Inlcrcstltij
to tho parties themselves, It Is of no in
terest to us, except upon tho duiiikhI
tlon that tho ticcouut in fJcuests of tho
creation of Adam was designed to ex
elude tho supposition that people hud
been creatul. If Adam and Kvo were
tho tolo progenitors of tho race, then
Cain and Abel, it is Inferred, must liavo
married their own sisters a connec
tion which Is shocking to tho sensibili
ties of tho wholo race, at a subsequent
tilugo of development.
But many of tho Fathers of tho
Church denied that Adam and Eve,
and their children, were tho only peo
ple on tho (jlobo. They nillrmed that
tho text in Oenesls very plainly implies
that tlicro wcro other Inhabitants be
sides Adam's family. They allege that
verso H of chapter 1 of Oenesls, plainly
Implies that tho earth was already
widely populated. For, when Uod do
clarcd that Cain should bo driven out
from his family, and mado a vagabond
In tho o.irtli, Cain deprecatodltho sen
teiice,and pleaded that "cvptyonu that
llmleth mo shall slay mfci' It was
plainly not his family conJffctlons that
ho feared, fur ho desired nojPo bo driv
en forth from them. It. was tho people
ho should meet wheiijfn wanderer In
tho earth. Who, thonftwcro theso peo
plo whom Cain feared to ineft when ho
should have gono forth Into tho earth?
It is also reasoueiljby scholars that
tho most iiattirulsBclhod of soothing
his fears would liavo been to tell him,
" Tlicro aro no other peoplo on earth
except your father's children,'' Instead
of that tho Lord is represented as fall
Ing in wlthlfc'ain's Itiipre.-slon respect
Irk' .tfid.'noiiulatioii of tho world, and
ii marl: iiiKin mln lest hnv
fifedlrig blra should kill him," (Oen. 1:
10) Still further it is said that Cain,
separating himself from his kindred,
woot to tho land of Nod, east of Fdom,
ant) ho bullded a city, nnd called the
nnmoof tho city after his son Enoch,
Tho fathers very ji'erllnantly asked,
"whero did tho people como from, that
lived in this city? That would bo an
extraordinary stnto of things which
should havo enabled Cain to 1111 up a
city, however small, with his town
children 1 And it is inferred, therefore,
that thero wcro' others In tho land be
sides tho immediate posterity of Ad tin.
If Adam waatho only progenitor,
Cain must liavo married his slater, if
thero wero other lines of people, other
Adams, as it were, then Cain might
have mnrrled into another stock.

Jtnrk Twain's Aiitlco to Parent n.
Ilnvlng refiocted deeply for half nn
hour on tho subject of domestic disci
pline, I fccl'JIko apnrlng n fow sugges
tions relatlvo to the best method of
bringing up children. Reiugnbncho
lor without children, my suggestions
nro ns likely to bo dlslutcreslt-d as if I
had never scon a child.
According to my observation, tho
most difficult lime to bring up children
Is in tho morning. You do, sometimes,
though seldom, bring them up lu the
morning by yelling at them , but tho
eiToctlvcncss of this process diminishes
with lis repetition, even when not en
tirely naturalized by tho children's
trick of stopping their cars with tho
bed clothes. Tho only prompt, effect
1 va nnd absolutely reliable, method Is to
bring them up by tho hair. If your
child Uas.nrgood, healthy scalp, with
nut nny tendency to prcmaturo bald
ness, this method will work with most
gratifying efficiency. Try It nbout
onco a week, and you will bo surprised
lo obiorvo how Its Influence will extend
through the six days' interval, Inspir
ing your child with tho liveliest possi
ble Interest In tho resplendent pagean
try of sunrise. To bring up a darling
child by tho hair requires tho oxorciso
of Bomo energy nnd firmness; but no
nffectionato parent will licsltato nt anv
llttlo sactlflco of this kind for tho wel
fare of his offspring.
Nothing can bo moro fatal to your
dlsclpllno than to allow your children
to contradict you. If you happen to bo
betrayed Into any misstatement or ox
aggoratlon in their presence, don't per
mit thom to correct you. Right or
wrong, you must obstinately Insist on
your infallibility, nnd promptly sup
press every symptom of puerllo skepti
cism, with forco If need bo. Tho mo
ment you permit them lo doubt your
unerring wisdom, you will begin to
forfeit tluir respect nntl pander to their
conceit. Thcro can bo no sadder spec
tacle than a parent surrounded hv ollvo
branches who think they know moro
than ho does. I vividly remember how
my father wtio was ono of tho most

Care of Cows and Milk Inj Winter.
It is Important, in making butter at
this season of tho year, that Iho cream

previous to tho churning, Itought not
to bo allowed to fall below fifty-flvo do,

and if it does thero will bo troublo in

It is often a good plan, whero the fa
cilities for keeping tho milk at a uni
form temperature do not exist, to scald
tho milk by setting It In tho pan upon
the slovo till it "crinkles'' ou tho edgoi
of tho coating of cream that rises, nnd
then to sot It nway whero tho tempera
ture will not fall below tho point
named. Tho cream will rlso rapidly
and the churning will bo easier.
Whero few coivs only aro kept, and
the quantity of cream Is not sufficient
to churn moro than onco or twlco a

quantity of flno alt at the samo tlmo.
It will facllitato tho churning very

pathy with tbo notion that a poor man
should hitch himself fast to a post, and

an iceberg of himself, to shut his eyea

aud deny himself tho enjoyment that
results from generous actions, merely
that ho may hoard wealth for his heirs to
quarrel about. But there is an economy
which Is every man's duty, and which
is especially commendable In the man
who struggles with poverty an econo

and which must be practised if the poor
man would sccuro independence. It Is
