One of the most delightful works Issued
in many a day is the "THEASUHY OF

be difficult to detail all the merits and
beauties of u book so full of creations that
touch the heart and revive memories com
mon to all. The old and familiar sonirs
that have been dear to every homo and tho
tirlglitest, sweetest, new songs that nro
becoming Immensely popular, are here
found grouped together In a most beautl.
fill book tor tho parlor table. The work
gives more joy thau u hundred concerts or
operas, tor it comes dally Into the fain-

n book has long been wanted.
mis collection embodies the widest
diversity in tho character of its contents.
Including compositions which nro praise
ful, patriotic, martial, descriptive, dldac
tic, sentimental, humorous, nathetlc and
devotional. It is believed that no phuso of
sentiment, and no set of circumstances,
will fall to be appropriately met in the use
of this book. Because of this snlendid
fullness, all tho Inmates of the home, from
granufutlier to baby pet, may feel that the
music of tho homo circle is truly a feast of
fut tilings. There is not a sonc In the en-
tire collection that could lie omitted with
out marring tlie completeness of the book.
Indeed the world's greatest Basso. M. W.
Whitney, of Boston, gives it his "cordial
endorsement . , , as a most desirable book
for the Home Circle." His opinion is con

'Sweet Bye and Bye."
She leaves a loving father and mother
and two brothers, besides many friends, to

There Is at present going tlie rounds of
the press a suggestion that, though simple,
seems to have the endorsement of many as
having been effective as a cure for various
ailments. Tho remedial ngent Is drinking
hot water by tlie tumblerful, lathe morning
after rising. Ills claimed that tills will
relievo dyspepsia troubles, that it tones tho
stomach and relieves the system ot impuri
ties. Tho local editor of tlie New York
Dispatch says ho has tried thu hot water
cure for slckhcuducho, for ud wards of three
months, ami that lie has not had un attack
of the dlsoase since, although before Its uso
he was iitlllcted with thu stckhcudacho
almost weekly. He is now a (Inn believer
n the hot water cure.

So far ns I know ll has not yet been de
termined id what altitude n Hay Fever
victim l rcllffid fioni his sufferings.
This point, which Is said to be twcnty-llvo
hundred feel high, I presume above tide
wuler, U of n siilllclent height to answer
the purpose, I have just enough of the
genuine symptoms of Hay Fever hero to
show me what I would bo suffering at
home. The objection to the place Is Its
Inaccessibility from Bloomshurg, across
tlie country, forty miles, from Muncy
twenty.two miles, from Hiighcsvlllc seven
teen miles. Of course, the certnlnty of
eiw from suffering, and rest from labor,
enables a man to endure some Inconvc
nlencles, but I can easily conceive what
a crowd of visitors a railroad, reaching
the lake, would bring to Its delightful
shores and walks.
Some of the conveniences of our late
civilization are here nlrendy. A telephone
to Laporte nnd Dushore. where you rench
a telegraph line, brings you Into contact
with the wicked outside world but owing
to the peculiar way in which Uncle Sam
uel carries his malls, It takes about three
days to get a letter from Bloomsburg.
We aro therefore sent back to tho times
when a newspaper a week old was news;
the British army might be drowned in the
Red Sea for a week before we could hear
of It or Stewart nnd Beaver might bo

holding the sponge ; or tho Kilkenny Knt
light of Konkllng nnd Korncll might bo
ended for ninny days before the echoes of
Eaglesmero could resound with shouts for
the victors, or sighs for the vanquished.
However, to people who do not desire
nny such excitement, tho days pass quiet
ly, nnd the long August and dreamy
September aro the nfter-math of child
hood and youth, when neither cares nor
sorrows nor business vexed the long day,
nor disturbed the sound sleep of the in
creasing night. Tho days of the week and
oven of the month seem not to Impress
themselves upon your attention, they come
and go nml make no sign, and leave no
mark upon the progress or business of the
world. There are persons here from
Hiighcsvlllc, -Muncy, Wllliamsport, Mllton(
Bloomsburg, Catnwlssa, Philadelphia and
New York they come and go they walk
and boat, and take excursions upon the
steamer and battoe, and say good bye, and
wo sec them no more.
For myself I have been busy giving the
Inst touches to the first part of my "His
tory of Columbia County," uml which I
send you herewith to be put Into the hands
of the typesetter. In the Intervals of that
labor I have been amusing myself trying to
read Molliere's Dramatic works, but have
found it not so amusing as I expected.
French comedy Is not to my taste. Thcro
are a good many amusing scenes, ns there
ought to bo in over thirty plays, but ns a
whole they arc disappointing.
Of the lake I can add nothing to what 1
said a year ago, Tho ruins of glass works
are still standing, but storm nnd frost will
before long, tumble the ruinous walls, and
the beautiful hill which they now crown
will give place to soni'i residence, which
it is to be hoped will do honor to its mug
nlllccnt location. As I said, Its inaccessi
bility Is Its great drawback. But cngl
neerlng skill may yet enable u train of cars
to scale the mountain tops, nnd if so, I
fear the quiet dreamy life wo aro now
leading will be gone forever. Why should
the scream of the locomotive fret the rocks
of quiet, sunny, sleepy Eaolusmki:!:.

WAI.T WHITMAN'S I.KAVES OK (USANS.
The edition of Walt Whitman's "Leaves
of Grass," about which so much lins been
written on account of the abandonment of
Its publication by a Boston firm in conse
quence of Mr. Anthony Comstock's allega
tions that it contained objectionable passa
ges, has been Issued by Rees Welsh & Co.,
Philadelphia. The book contains so much
true poetry, so many passages which stamp
their author as a true poet of a high,
though certainly not of the highest order
that it is a pity that Mr. Whitman's own
good senso has not moved him long ago to
cut out tho "Children of Adam," words
and lines, which add nothing ut nil to the
beauty of his work and which certainly nro
not structural and vital to it. The author of
such a poem as "O Captain, My Captain,"
does himself Injustice! and puts himself at
a dlsudvuntngo most unnecessarily and
most cruelly by flying iu tlie face of decent
public oplnioip Wait Whitman's person
alily Is too sweet uud soundnud clenr to bo
put by a mere piece of Injudiclousiiess at
so great a disadvantage as that under
which n few expressions lu his poems
wantonly and wilfully kept there against
tlie advice of Ids best filends cause him
to labor. He will not epungu them hliu
self,and therefore he must pay the penalty)
but after he is dead they will bo blotted
out of editions, for lovers of the good man
will be sure to do for his fame that which
he himself has wo are sure, foolishly re
fused to do for It.

of it generally. It is a handy
place, right by the new City
1 Kill, at the very center of the
city. It answers our purpose
to welcome you, and to pro
vide for such of your wants
as we can.
The store is about twice
as large as it was two or
three years ago; made so by
digging under ground and
building overhead, and by ex
tension on Chestnut street.
Parts of the store are about
as comfortable as any place
can be; and one of the most
comfortable parts is now be
ing got ready for the rest and
refreshment of strangers.
One of the pleasant things
about the store always has
been the fact that you can
walk all over it, either alone
or with a guide, without ever
being asked to buy a thing.
We know very well that most
of you come to us for a good
share of your supplies; why
should we spoil your visit by
intruding goods upon your
attention, when you come to
see the place ?
But perhaps you are not
coming to Philadelphia just
now. Very well; take a cool
er time. It's cool enough in
the store, when you get here.
You can write for any goods
that you may happen to
want; and get them, proba

were on the spot. Any how,

We sell more sorts of

to contain all the virtues of the
