can hardly bo commended. For an
earlier fodder crop, however, its soft
succulent stem and abundant leaf grow

been Bhown at tho station, that tho
"horse-mano" or "side-head" oats stand
up straighlcr than tho "sprangly" kinds
Wo onco tried to explain this by stating

Ayes Family JiVdicines.
Tho business of tho J. C. Aver Co.
of Lowell, Mass., has grown to its ures'
ont largo proportions from a small bo
ginning. Forty years ago Dr. Ayer
tirst preparod Ayer b Uhcrry sectoral
for tho uso of practising phvsicans.
The gorjeral public sooon learned the
valuo of this remedy, and it early at
tained wide popularity. Its name is
now nmong tho most familiar of houso
hold words. After tho reputation of
tho sectoral bad becomo established
Dr. Ayer, recognizing tho universal do
mand for a reliablo cathartic, began
the preparation and salo of Ayer's
nils. Ayors barsapanlla soon fol
lowed, and tbo phenomenal success of
these remedies encouraged Dr. Ayer to
add Ayer's Ague Cure and Ayer's Hair
Vigor to tho list.
From tho outset, neither expense
nor effort has been spared to obtain tho
best materials for these preparations
and the best facilities for compounding
them. Thoy are of unvarying quality
and strength, and always satisfactory
in their effects. So popular havo they
becomo that their sale has extended to
all parts of tho world, and scarcely a
ship sails from New Tiork, Boston, San
Francisco, or any other American port,
without including in its cargo and
stores a supply of these medicines.
Nearly forty thousand merchants do
business with Dr. J. C. Ayer & Co., by
direct correspondence, tho mail receipts
of tho firm ranging from 400 to 800
Ayer's Almanao was first issued in
1852, and was then printed only in
English. It now appears in ten lan
guages, tho various editions aggregat
ing nearly fourteen millions of copies
per annum. In addition to tho alma
nacs, this houso issues fortv millions of
circulars, annually, in English, French
and Spanish, also pamphlets, in twenty
languages, including tho French, Ger
man, Spanish, Dutch, Portuguese, Swe
dish, Bohemian, Norwecian. Polish,
Welsh, Italian, Finish, Greek, Armen
ian, Uhinese, lurkisn, Bulgarian, Uur
rncso and Hawaiian.
Tho printing of this material, to
gether witli wrappers, labels, ita, ro
quires tho constant uso of eight large
printing presses, every working day tu
the year, consuming for the Almanac,
alone, 500 tons of paper.
The remedies furnished by Dr. J. O.
Ayer & Co. are highly concentrated,
tho cheapest, most economical, and tho
best that medical skill can devise. A
now pamphlet, on "Emergencies," has
just been issued by tho abovo named
company. As accidents happen in ev
ery family, wo advise every reader to
send for this little manual of practical
instruction and information. It may
bo had freo on application to Dr. J. C,

Tin: iiukstions to hk discussed rnou-
Atll.K ACTION Ol' TUB TWO ItOL'SI'.S.
Tho next Triennial General Conven
tion of tho Episcopal church, which
will meet in Chicaco on tho Oth of Oc
tober, will discuss a number of impor
tant questions. This body, whioh is
r.om nosed of somo of tho ablest olcr-
gymcu and laymen in thoi Episcopal
cnurcn, is too Bupromo legisianvo us
sombly of tho Episcopal Commuuion,
having lull power to alter or moony
tho disolpllno and worship of tho
church, but not having tho power to
touch its doctrines as contained in mo
Catholio creeds. It is oomposod of.two
Houses, tho upper, or Houso of Bish
ops, and tho lower, or Houbo of Cleri
cal and Lay Deputies, elected from ov
ery diocese, and all legislative measures
to become law must pass both Houses.
Other safeguards aro thrown around
legislation which oompletcly protect
tho churcli from hasty actloni so that
whilo thoro is uo lack of fresh nnd
vigorous thought in tho deliberations
of tho convention, it is at tho sarao
time probably ono of tho most conserv
ative bodies in tho world.
By far tho most important question
that will como up boforo this next con
vention will bo tho Revised Prayer
Book, or tho Book Annexed, as it is
legally called. Tho aolion which has
already been taken on this question
well illustrates tho cautiousness of tho
Episcopal Church in making changes.
When, after manv vcars of discussion,
the liturgical committeo was appointed
in 1880. a distiuct plcdce was given
by the committeo that tho office of tho
Holy Communion should not bo
touched, and thev were furthor made
to understand that they must not mako
any radical changes in any other part
of tho book; indeed, tho scopo of their
work was best indicated by tho fact
that thev were popularly known as
"the Enriohment Coramittoo." They
wcro simply to enrioh the Prayer Book
by providing tor now services anu ai
lowing thoso already in uso to be short
ened when necessary.
Tho work of tho committee was
iiresentGd to the General Convention
of 1883. It could not, however, bo
finally accepted by that body, except as
a renort of a committee. As such it
had to come before every diocesan con
vention of tho church durinc tho en
suiug three years, and now it is to
come before the General Convention
arrain for final aotion. What that final
action will bo it is hard to say: but
tho indications aro that tho proposed
book will not be accoptcd in its present
form. Extremo high churchmen are
fouud opposing, because it does not eo
far enough to suit them, and they wish
to defer any revision uutil they are
strong enough to control it themselves.
Broad churchmen aro also found op
posing it because tho revisers have
been too timid on the ono hand, and
too ecclesiastical on tho other; whilo at
tho same timo tho book as revised
would denrive them of much of tho
liberty which thoy now enjoy under
tho vaguo lubncal wording oi mo
present book. They, therefore, equally
with the hign enurenmen, wisnio uo
fer any revision until they can direct it
in lines of their own choosing. When
to these two classes are added those
who have learned to love the Prayer
Book as it is, and who aro therefore
opposed to any change on sentimental
grounds, it will be seen that there is a
strong opposition to tho Book Annexed.
Dr. W. 11. Huntington, nowover, ana
thoso who aro so enthusiastically work
ing with him, believe that after a full
discussion tho convention will accept
tho proposed book. If such should bo
the case it is the opinion of many in
tho church that tho Episcopal Com
munion would bo vastly strengthened
thereby, as its liturgy would be bettor
adapted to tho needs ot mo age.
Tho proposition to chango tne namo
of tho church from "Protestant Epis
copal" to somo designation as "Ameri
can Catholic" will doubtless again
como up, and though tho proposition
appears to be growing in strength, it is
not possiblo that it will be seriously
considered. Very different in charac
ter is tho petition which will bo pre
sented to tho convention urging somo
action looking toward a union with
tho other great Protestant bodies.
This petitiou will bo signed by a largo
number of clergymen and laymen of
tho church; and though its signers
does not boast of their Catholicism, it
breathes a spirit of tho truest Catholio
ity. It is not likely that tho conven
tion will take the action prayed for;
hut the debate upon it cannot fail to
bo helpful and healthful.
Another matter to be broucht before
the convention will bo tho necessity of
some sort of a final Court of Appeals
in tho Episcopal church. It is said by
many, and with some show of reason,
that tbo present system, which makes
the bishop of cacti diocese the final
judgo in all cases that como before
him, often results in gravo injustice.
Such injustice, it is urged,, has been
done in tho past, and will bo douo in
tho future, no matter how anxious
bishops may bo to judgo justly; and
thereforu some tribunal should bo es
tablished which would havo the power
to review evidence and revcrso the find
ings of the bishop. All of which will
doubtless commend itself to the con
vention; but it is not likely that there
will be enough time at its disposal for
tbo settlement of this vexatious ques
tion. Tho coming Goneral Convention will
havo before it tho record of three
years of prosperity in tho church.
The bitterness of party spirit with its
barren controversies is becoming less
noticeable in tho Episcopal Churcli ov
ery year; and all schools of thought
aro civinK more ol their at-
tcnliou to tho philantbropio nnd
evangelistic work of tho church. Tho
church is growing in strength in tho
community aud its missionary work in
the West is, on tho whole, prosecuted
with vigor and success.
The Twins of Looana.
From the London Pally News.
John aud Jacob Tocci, tho twins of
Locana, who have boen shown in al
most every city of Eurono as tho suc
cessors of tho famous Siameso twins
are dying in tho Prater. Thoir mother
is n strong, healthy country woman.
The boys resemble each other exactly,
havo pretty, dellcato lcatures, and aro
now in their tenth year. John and
Jacob nro separato in inr as tho sixth
rib, and havo one abdomen and ono
pair of legs between them. Jaoob
moves tho right leg John tho left. Tho
twins cannot walk, and keep thoi
balanco by lacing their arms around
each othern neck. Jacob eats often
and heartily nud is tho healthier of tho
two, aud to all appearance it is ho who
keeps his brother anvo. uwo days
aco the twins quarrelled over a toy,
and John grew so oxeitod that his
heart blood suddenly ceased to flow,
aud ho chanced to a condition of com
plete lethargy, from which he had not
nwoko tho following morning. Tho
boy Buffered from the samo complaint
a year ago in Berlin, nnd Professor
Viohow then declared that a recurrence
of tho lethargy would certainly put an
ond to tho twins' life. A number of
Vienna physicians aro obsorving tho
malady, but thoy entottain littlo hopo
tor John's life, and if John dies, Jacob
must follow him to tho grave.
Tho twins as thoy Ho in their bed
offer a strange contrast. Jacob with
feverish uvea nnd a red faco seems to
harbor all tho blood that has retreated
from John's lifeless body. Tho
oonsciuus boy cries incessantly, becauso
ho tins often heard Professor Virohow's
remark repeated, aud knows that his
brother's death is but tho harbinger of
his own. Tho poor creatures aro meet
ing with the samo fato that somo time
ago put an ond to tho lifo of tho
Siameso twins, tho second of whom
died of poisoned blood-vessels, after
having spout six tcrriblo hours with
tbo corpso of his brother, uio advis

cussed at tho time, hut boforo n resolu
