Iloltle or this Hitters thero is contained as much
medical virtue as will bo found In several Rrtfloin
of ordinary mixture. Tho Hoots, Ac., used In
tills Hitters aro grown in Germany, their vital
principles extracted In that country byasrion
tUIc Chemist, and forwarded to tho manufactory
in this city, where they aro compounded nnd
bottled. Containing no spirituous Ingredients,
bis Hitlers Is free from tho objections urged
yalnst all others; no desire for stimulants can be
induced from their use, they cannot make drunk,

any but n beneficial cUVct.

Was com pounded for those not Inclined to ex
ttemo bllters, and Is Intended for u-ja In cases
when some alcoholic Rtlmutant Is required lu
connection with tho Tonic properties of tho
U liters. I'.acli boltlo of tho Tonic contains ouo
bottle of tho Hitters, combined with purcHANTA
CHUZ HUM, and llavorcd lu such a manner that
the extreme bitterness of the bllters Is overcome,
forming a preparation highly agrecablo nnd
pleasant to the palate, and containing tho mcdl
ctnal v I Hues of tbo Hitlers. Tho price of tho
Tonla Is $1.50 per Dottle, which many poisons
think too high. They must take Into considera
tion that the stimulant used Is guaranteed to bo
of a puro quality, A poor article cojuld bo fur
ulflied at a cheaper price, but Is It not belter to
pay a Ulllo moro a d have a good article? A
medicinal preparation should coutnlu none but
the best ingredients; nnd they who expect to
Main a cheaper compound, nnd be benefited by
it will most certainly bo cheated.

Tho hospitality of tlto Norwegians is

DOMESTIC LIFE IN NOHWAY
As a general thing tho Norwegian
peasants, both men and women, rotlro
to rest without undressing, merely m
moving their heavy wadmel, or shcop
skin Jackets, and sometimes tho woolon
worsted nightcap which forms tho usual
covering for tho head. I often entered
a Norwegian safer, or farm, In tho mid
dio of night, and tho occupants of tho

to contlnuo their broken rest In tho barn

Hardly n Norwegian farmhouso is

tho last stitch of extra emboldery nnd
the finishing spanglo of n bridal outfit,

work to bo done, carving in wood Is ro
sorted to to kill time, and in tills art tlio
Norwegians aro wonderfully proficient,
equaling tho peasantry of Tyrol and tho
Hlack Forest, whosocarvlngs aro known
and for salo all over the world. Every
man always carries a short knife in a
sheath attached to his bolt, and tho
wooden handle of his tolleknlc is often a
perfect specimen In tho art of beautiful
and original carving. 'Wooden spoons,
tankards, bowls, walking sticks and

Tho national dress of tho Norwegians
Is very peculiar, but differs considerably
in tho various sogu or districts. 1'roba

In tho Hergen district, which consists,
for tho men, of a smart, short Jacket
mado of dark-bluo woolen stuff, or of
white wadmel, and is profusely adorned
in front with bright-silver buttons of
tho slzo and weight of a half-dollar
red or bluo waistcoat, dark kneo-breech
es, gaily colored woolen stockings, and
immense nnd clumsy shoes with sliver
or brass buckles; tho wholo person
finished off on top with a red worsted
night-cap, from which liangcs a bluo or
yellow tassel. Tho women wear a black

ot, faced with it red and green binding
a bright-red boddlce, blue or scarlet

bound with ribbon to match tho jacket,
ar-rings aro fccldom met with, but
largo silver fllagroo brooces and liugo
chains and medals of tho samo metal
aro always worn by tho women on fes
tlvo occasions. Loss tasteful is tho dross
worn in Guldbrandsdalen (ono of tho
largest and most fertile valleys In Nor
way), which consists of a swallow-tall
coat of dark stuff with gilt or brass but
tons, leather trousers and red night cap
for tho men ; and an ungainly robe, very

days beforo thoy had pitched their tent
at tho forks of tho road, and as they
could not agreo upon tho routo by which
to enter California, there thoy had re.
mained. Tho husband bad expressed a
preference for tho Carson road, and tho
wife for tho Losson, and neither would
yield. Tho wlfo declared sho would re

would bo pleased to prolong thosojourn
through tho summer following.
On tho morning ot tlio fourth day tho
wlfo broke a sullen silence of thlrty-slx
hours by proposing a division of tho
property, which consisted of two yoke
of oxen, ono wagon, camp furniture, a
small quantity of provisions and twelvo
dollars in silver. Tho proposal was ac-
cepted, and forthwith tho "plunder"
was divided, leaving tho wagou to tho
old man and tho daughter to tho mother.
Tho lattcrexchanged with a neighbor-
ng train tho cattle belonging tahor for
a pony and pack-saddlo nnd putting her
daughter and her portion of tho divided
spoils upon tbo animal, sho resolutely
started across tbo desert by tho Lessen
trail, whllo tho old man silently yokod
his cattlo and took tho other routo.
Of courso both partlos reached Cali

is scarcely possible that any obstacle,
death included, could havo interfered

tho old lady readily found employment

And what had become of tlio old man?
Tho wlfo had not seen or heard of htm

Thoy had lived happily together for

herself for tho wilfulness which separated
them after solonga pllgrimago together.
Hut ho was not dead. Wo caunot trace
his courso in California, however. All
that wo know of him is, that fortuno had
not smiled upon him, and that, foryears
ho hail tolled without any hope. Finally,
feeling unablo longer to wield tho pick

Then tho old woman'scountenanee sud

'John," said she, with n look which
might bo construed Into earnestness,
'how did you find tho Carson road?"
'Miserable, Sukey, miserable," replied
tho old man : "full of s.tnd nnd alkali."
Then I was right, John ?" sho contin

'That's enough I" said she, throwing her

Tho following extract from n speech
delivered by Mr. Skinner, of Franklin
county, Pa, in tho House of Represen
tatives at HarrlBburg shows tho Injus
tice which has boon dono to our gallant
Hancock by Quant. In thocourso of
his roraarks Mr. Skinner said :
la this connection ho would draw n
parallel caso lllustrativo of tho kind of
Injustice that Grant sometimes deuli
out lo tho "nation's defenders." On
tho third day of tho battlo of Gettys
burg, tho fiorco conflict raging between
tho two armies had reached its height.
Tho fate of Pennsylvania nnd of tho na
tion hung trembling in thoscalo of bat
tlo. Loo was hurling his maddoned
and desporato forces In quick succession
against our lines, hoping to crush them
nt somo point and put our soldiers to
rout. Tho koy lo tho Union position
on that day was Cemetery Hill. That
point gained to tho cnomy, nil would
havo lieen lost to us. Leo knowing
this, placed his best corps In tho hands
of his ablest General arid directed hira
to carry It. Forming speedily tho long
deep grey lines began lo movo forward.
They wero nil men who had faced death
on many a bloody field. They know
tho Importance of tho work they had
boon sent lo perform, and they marched
up that Blopo with a firmness and stead
fastness which told plainly enough
that fear held no plaea In their ranks.
On tho summit of tho hill stood another
corps a corps of Union soldiers. If
there wero blanched faces and quiver
ing Hps among thoso It was only a moro
suro Indication that they had determin
ed to hold their position or go down to
death In tho ultcmpt. It takes moro
courage to meet a chargo than to make.
On camo tho deep gray lines. Tho first
well-directed volley, whllo It thinned
their ranks, staggered them not a sec
ond had no greater effect and thou they
camo together, thoso strong and bravo
men, In a fierco and bitter conflict that
lasted for hours. Never did men fight
with more determined valor. Tho com
mauders of each wero bravo and skill

forces was tho idol of his men. Ho had
been selected on account of his superior
courage nnd skill to hold that position.
Right well too ho did It leading his
men in person and mingling in tho
thickest of tlto fray. After an exhibi
tion of valor rarely wltnossed, and after
n most fearful slaughter on both sides,
tbo Union forces wero victorious, and
tho Rebel forces Sent reeling back
mero bloody remnant of that strong
and compact body which had moved
up to tho attack. Hero on this spot was

Pennsylvania saved aud possibly tho
nation. At tho closo of tho contllct the
commander of tho Union forces was
borne from tho field wounded. His
namo was Hancock a namo dear to
millions of Democrats In tho land bo
cause ho has kept in poaco, as in war,
lils personal honor untarnished. Tho
namo of tho opposing General was
Longstreet. Whon Grant came to
Washington as President, one of tho
first acts of fits administration was to
nppolnt Lonsrstrect Collector of Customs

thousand dollars, and his second to ex
llo Hancock, tho man who had saved
tho day at Gettysburg, to tho wilds of

Why Is it that thero Is such a repug
nance on tlio part of parents to putting
their sous to a trade. A skilled mechan
ic Is an independent man. Go whero ho
will his craft will bring nira support.
Ho need ask favors of none. Ho has
literally bis fortuno In his own hands.
Yet foolish parents ambitious that
their sons should "rise in tho world,"
as they say aro moro willing tiiat they
should study for n profession, with tho
chances for oven a moderato success
heavily against them, or run tho risk
of spending their manhood In tho ig
noble task of retailing dry goods, or, of
tolling at tbo accountant's desk, than
learn n trade which would bring them
manly strength, health nnd Independ
ence In point of fact, tho method they
chooso is tho ono least likely to achievo
llio advancement aimed at, for tho sup
ply of candidates for "errand boys,"
dry goods clerks, und kindred occupa

on tho other hand, tho demand for real
ly skilled mechanics of overy descrip

ply. Tbo crying need of Ibis country
to-day is for 6kllled labor; and that
