MEDICIN ES.—Will people never learn to know that n
diseased liver and stomach necessarily diseese the entire
system ? The plainest principles of common sense teach
this and yet there are hundreds who ridicule the Id. a,
and continue In the course which almost inevitably
brings them prematurely to the grave. Living as the
majority of the people do, at complete varieties, with the
laws of nature, it mast bo apparent to ell (lint. sooner or
later, nature , will revenge herself.' Hence we find that
persons who indillso to excess in the use of very rich or
intlige4ilde food or intoxicating drinks. invariably pay
a heavy penalty in the end. The stomach becomes die.
ordered and refuses toilet: the liver fails to perform its
functions, tit spensin and its attendant evils follow, and
still the suffering individuals persist in clinging to the
thoroughly exploded idea of the past. Dr. SCI ENK'S
medicines are recommended to all such. They bring sure
and cortnln relief wherever they are used as directed,
end ell that is 110e0i3111 y to establish their reputation
with every ailing inen'or woman In the lendia n fair and
Impartial trial of them. Let those.who aro skeptical on
tins point, nail who have permitted interested persons to
prejudice them against these now celebrated reniedles for
consumption. discard their prejudices, and be giiierned
by rho principles of reason and COIIIIIIOII sense. •If the
system is disordered depend upon it. in nine eases out of
tea the seat of the disorder will be found in the stomach
arid liter. To cleanse and invigorate the stomach and to
stimulate the liter to healthy action, Imo
ingdemand for there pills in the best. evidence of their
value. Thousands upon thousands of boxes aro sold daily.
Why ? Simply because they act promptly nut efficiently
Int alids Who may not find it cOnvenient to call on Dr.

It may lie asked by (11090 who are not familiar with
the virtues of these great remedies,9low do Dr. Schenck's
medicines etTJet their wonderful cures of consumption I"
The enswer is a simple one. They begin their work
of restoration by bringing the stomach, liver and bowels
into an Retire lie ilthy condition. It is food that cures
this formidable fIiSOMO. SCHENCK'S MANDRAKE
PILLS act on lire liver and stomach, promoting healthy
secretion:and removing the NM and stints which have
resulted Dean the inactive or torpid condition cf those or
gans, and of the system generally. This sluggish state
of the body, and the consequent accumulation of the un
healthy substaneee named prevent the proper digestion
of food, and. as a 'lateral consequence creates disease,
which results in prostration and finally in death.
IC, when taken regularly, mingle with the food, and the
digestive organs, make good and rich blood. and as a nat
ural consequence, giro flesh and strength to the patient.
Let the faculty say what it may, this is the only true
cure for consumption. Experience has proved beyond
the shadow of a daunt. and thousands aro today alive
and well who a fete years since were regarded as hope.
less cases, but who were induced to try Dr. SCHENCK'S
remedies, nod were restored to pertnanent health by
their use.
One of the first steps the physician should tabs sslth
colniumpt ire patient is to ins (game the system. Non•
bow is this to he done 7 Certainly not by giving medi
cines that exhaust and enervate—medicines that impair
instead of improve the functions of the ingestive organs
'Doctor SCHENCK'S medicines cleanse the stomach and
boss els of all unbstanccs which are calculated to irrltnto
or Is calten Linens. 'they cleat° an appetite—promote
healthful digestion—make good blond, and, na a conse
quence, they invigninto and strengthen the entire sys
tem and more especial ly those parts u Melt are discescd
If this cannot be done, tines the case must be regarded as.
a hopeless one.
if the physician finds it impossible to make a patient
feel hungry, if the deceased person cannot partake of good
noun minted food and pt operly digest it, it is impossible
that he can gain in flesh and strength ; and it is equally
hullos-Ibis to bring a patient to this cond i lion so lung as
the liver is lundeined with diseased bile, slid the stomach
laden settle unhealthy slime.
Alonc.t the first tequeat made to tine physician by 11
COIISIIIII, lire patient is Stilt he will prescribe medicines
Eliot well allay the cough, night sweats :ma chills, n bleb
are the sore attendants on consumption. But this should
Dot be done, as tin cough is only an effort of nature to
telieve it-elf, and the night sweats and chills into canoed
by the diseased lunge. The remedies ordinarily prescrib.
ed do more halm than good. impale the functions
of the stoinsch, Impede healthy digestion, and nggravAte
rather than cute the dist aqe.
Thet e is, after all, nothing like facts which to substan
tiate a position, end it upon fre:s that Dr. Schenck's
relies. lk:early all who trove tilk(11 Iris medicines in at
,ordanco 0 ith his directions have not mil) been cured of
congimption, but, front the fart that these medicines act
with wonderful power upon the dige,ttve organs:, patients
thus cured speedily gain fleet. Cleansing the e) tent of
all impurities, they lay the fontulation for a solid, sob
stantial structure. Restoring these ergots to health,
they create an appetite. The food is properly assimila
ted ;the quantity of blood is not only increased, but is
mode rich and strong and itt the face of each a condition
of the s 3 stern till disease must ho banished.
Full thtections accompany each of the medicines, so
that it is not absolutely necessary that patients should
see Dr. SCHENCK peronsally, unless they desire to trove
their lungs examined. For this purpoo Ito is at his of.

The Real and the Ideal,
Subjoined is an eloquent extract
from an address delivered by. Col. A.
K. McClure, before the literary socie
ties of Washington and Jefferson Col
lege, Washington, Pa , August 3d, '7O:
"How brightly the ideal portrays
the triumphs of statesmanship ! Flow
the student's heart quickens as he
reads of the giants who have swayed
Senates and nations, and who have loft
enduring monuments of their great
ness in their political achievements -1
They tower above their fellows on the
pages of history, as if they had been
created unlike other :nen. But histo
ry is forgetful 'of their• groat deeds,
and their virtues alone survive them.
They all have dreamed, and vainly
dreamed, as have the humblest of their
followers. They hoped, attained, and
suffered more, and there the distinc
tion ends. I speak of Henry Clay
with reverence. He was the idol of
my boyhood, and his name is linked
with the grateful memories of the sea
son when we invest greatness with
the perfection of human attributes.—
He was beloved, even idolized, by his
partisans. It would seem as if he had
been born to test the measure of affec
tion that could be lavished upon a pop
ular leader by a free people. Others
have been esteemed; have aroused a
nation's gratitude; have commanded
the sober approval of the country, or
have been borne upward upon sweep
ing tides; but who, fallen and power
less, was followed to the close of his
eventful life with such sincere and pro
found affection ? He was great in all
the groat qualities of man, and yet he
was but a child of larger stature. You
will read of his victories—of his life,
that seemed to be but ono continued
ovation—of his matchless eloquence in
behalf of human liberty in every clime,
and of his . heroic, pacification of our
sectional estrangements.' He was hon
ored with every official trust, save the
ono he most desired. His ideal achieve
ment was to be chosen ruler ,of the
people Who loved him. It was the
sweet dream of half of his allotted
days. It seemed even just within his
roach, and yet was over lost. Twice
in his riper life his principles triumphed
in national contests; but others were
made his loaders, and wore the wreaths
his tact and statesmanship had woven
for his party. Never was a life so full
of hope ; never was the ideal so rich in
promise; and never *ere diCappoint
ments more filled with bitterness.—
When you .havb' read of his.brilliant
career : turn .to - the gad sequel in Col
ton's compilation of his private corres
pondence, and the bright picture is
blotted out in the painful realization
of a great life with its great ideal des
tiny overthrown.
"Another name is immortal in the
nation's pride and sharedits affections.
Webster was our profoundest states
man a score of years before his death.
j He crushed out a gigantic crime by a
single appeal to the Senate. It will
be enduring as time in the - annals of
rhetorical victories. Ho, too, was
Commoner, Senator, and Premier; but
was not what he inost ardently hoped
to be. His ideal destiny was plainly
written in his later years, and his life
went out in harrowing disappointment.
He had defeated Hayno and the threa
tened dismemberment of the Union,
and the whole world confessed the pre
eminence of his fame. He had an
swered Hulseman in behalf of the
rights of -man, and thrones trembled;
but he was riot President. His dreams
ended, and in a few fretful days ho
slept with his fathers.
"Calhoun was distinctively a repre
sentative man. lle was sincere, pro
found, subtle, and was worshipped by
his adherents. He had reached the
chair next the throne, and he had but
ono step more to realize his single
ambition ; but, he faltered as the chasm
widened; ho dreamed of ruling over
fragments of a dissevered country, and
in ~r and and gloomy perseverance, ho
labored ' until the shadows gathered in•
to night.
"Winfield Scott was the chieftain of
his age. The hero of two wars, ho had
reached the topmost round of military
glory. The impetuous victor of Chip
pewa and Lundy's Lane perhaps
dreamed only of twin stars, but the
commander-in chief and the conqueror
,Mvp.liant 'Dolot
of Mexico accepted a higher ideal des
tiny. The stars paled when' ' they
were,won, before ono bright dream
that was colossal in its freight of min
gled joy and sorrow. At last, after
many sickening days of bomdeferred,
a subordinate swept over him like the
simoon of 'the desert. If you would
know how much a child a man tnay
be, summon your generous forbearance
and read Scott's autobiography, where
he tells why•ho was not President.—
Ono, great 'hope, ono 'great infirmity;
and one great grief sum up the sequel
of his great' distinction.
"•'illy life has been a failure,' • were
the sad words I heard uttered by
Thaddeus Stevens when he was set
ting his house in order for the coming
of the inexorable messenger.. He was
the great Commoner of the nation's
sorest trial, and had witnessed :the tri
umph pf his earnest and consistent ef
forts for the disenthralment of the op
pressed. Ile ; was content with brav
ing popular ignorance and 'prejudice
against education and freedom ; but
when. he became the acknowledged
leader of the House, and saw the sub
stantial success of his cherished prin
ciples, his ideal life was not fulfilled.—
To himself his life appeared as does
the statue fashioned to rest upon some
high pinnacle. It seems ungainly, ill
proportioned, and wanting in symme
try and harmony,; but as it rises to
the distance from which it was design
ed to be viewed, its awkwaid, shape
less linos disappear, and its grace and
beauty win the admiring gaze of the
multitude. He had his measure of in
firmities, but there have been few so
sincerely devoted to their convictions,
and who would so willingly forego ho
nors and applause for conscience sake.
When posterity shall read of him, it
will be as one of the grand.central fig
ures in the panorama of a nation's re
demption, and his frailties will be un
recorded—the common tribute the his
torian pays to the fallibility of men
whose names are immortal. I thought
that he, of all our statesmen,. had most
nearly realized the hopes which in
spired his noblest efforts; but ho had
learned the•lessOn that the ideal desti
ny of every life points to the unattain
able. How much he dreamed, and
how keenly lamented that ho only
dreamed, there are few prepared to
"Look out over the countless throng
that have dreamed, and are still dream
ing, of the Presidency. The time was
when only the wisest statesmen looked
to the chair of Washington in their
ideal achievements, but now, who that
worships at the altar of ambition can
plead exemption ? Not sages and he
roes alone now turn their anxious
hopes toward the mighty sceptre of
the first people of the world. Preten
ders of every grade, who have climb
ed into position through slimy paths,
swell their shame by indecent strug
gles to rule in dishonor. Their ideal is
success, and 1 would not say how ma
ny bow before that fickle divinity. A
few of them will win in their moan
struggles, only to find their stolen ho.
nors turn to burning, ashes on their
brows. The broad path to the highest
trust of the Republic is thickly strewn
with skeletons of riven, castles, and
yet the throng that presses over thorn
to the same sad destiny is countless as
before. This one dream has unsettled
the best and bravest men, and is the
parent of strange misfortune. It has
made strong mon weak, And estranged
mighty leaders from the very devotion
they most,songht ; and it has made the
Union the prey of the tempest to grat
ify ambition. It invented the spolia
tiop of Mexico; it destroyed the Mis
souri compromise; it fashioned the
Bred Scott decision ; it enacted the fu
gitive slave law; it consigned the Whig
party to a dishonored tomb; it made
the Democratic party forget its cun
ning, and sacrifice its power; it made
men in every section, and of every
thado of sentiment traitors to them
solves, to truth, and to their country;
it bombarded Sumpter ; it prolonged
the bloody strife to destroy our na
sionality; and after the storm of battle
ceased it came with horrible discord
to lacerate the ghastly scars of war."
His MOTHER.—The love of a French
soldier for his mother is proverbial ;
it is a sentiment which survives every
other ; ho can never be laughed out of
it: and as long as ho holds sacred be
will always be reclaimable. There
were many touching instances of this
characteristic attachment during the
Crimean campaign. "One day," says
the aumonier, "atter a desperate action
a young sergeant of chasseurs was
ing awaiting his death, for a ball had
passed through his . body. Ho know
his case was hopeless, and T. poured
the consolations of religion into his
heart. 'Ah, hither,' he said, "the ap
proach of death does not make mo un
easy; I have just been reconciled to
God; I do not fear his justice; I - know
how loving and merciful He is. That
which fills mo with anguish is'—and
he paused for the tears rose to his
oyes, and choked his utterance—"tho
thought of my poor mother. As long
as I was receiving my pay, I always
managed to put by something to send
her. When lam no longer here, she
will die with grief and misery ;" and
the tears flowed afresh, for ho was
praying for his mother. I recited with
him a pater for her and with the words,
"Give her this day her daily broad,"
on his lips, he calmly expired."
A traitorous woman avows the be
lief that if all the men were in ono
country and all the *omen in another,
with a big river between them, lots of
poor women would be drowned.

How Mr. Weed used to Work.
B . T." writing on labor on a
morning paper relates the following :
I met Mr. Thurlow Weed a day or
two ago in the office of one of,our load
ing papers,:and 1 alluded to. Mr.. Jas.
Harper, and mentioned his , views •as
to the way for a , workingman to ac-,
quire' independence. Mr. Weed, re
flected a, moment and then replied :
"It was most. emphatically,the yule of
James Harper's whole life to study,
not bow little hemould, work, but how
much. Mr. Harper and I learped,our
trade more than fifty years, ago, of
Mr. Seymour, then the leading.printer
of the city. • He was our ameter, and
was one of the best-morn that (fed ever
made. He resided at•No.4o, John st.,
and lived, directly opposite his place of
business. J [MOB , and I were partnere.
The advantages of having a good part
ner, where you worked months togeth
er at the,satue press, must be • appar
ent. Often, when we had done a good
day's work, James Harper would say,
"Thurlow, let's break the back of an
other token—just break. its back." I
would generally reluctantly .consent
just to break its hack of the token,but
James would beguile me, or laugh at
my complaints, and never - let. me off
until the token was completed, fair
and 'square. It was a custom with' us
in Summer to do a fair half day's work
before the othe r ]: men and boy's got
their breakfast.' James and I would
meet by apdointment, in the gray of
the morning, and go down to John
street We got the key of the office
by tapping the window, and Mr. Sey
mour would take it- out from under
his pillow and hand it to ono of us
through an opening in the blihd. "A
pressman," continued• Mr. Weed, "who
could do 20 or oven ten per cont. more
work than usual was always sure of a
situation. Jaines Harper, Tom Ken
nedy—long since dead—and 1 made
the largest bills in the vicinity. We
often earned as much as $l4 per week
—liberal wages when you remember
that good board•could be obtained for
$lO per month.
As Mr. Weed tittered these words
his eyes lit up with the fires that illu
minated them in his youth, and there
was that expression a moment about
his face that showed he was for an in
stant living over again what wore pro
bably the pleasantest days of his.. var
ied and successful life.
In alluding to these "giants among
us," let us ask : Does the modern
system of labor, under the supposed
ameliorations of eight-hour law,trades,
unions, and constant strikes, promise
to bring up any representatives from
the ranks of the toiling millions, like
the legitimate fruits of old indus
tries, as represented by Thurlow
Weed, James Harper, and their co
equals and associates, "self-made men?'
Cdntrast the bitter spirit• of antagon
ism that now prevails between the em
ployed and Thurlow Weed's utterance
with deep emotion in his voice, speak
ing of his master, who had been dead
scores of year's, as "one of the best men
God over made."
It is something for the youth of the
country, thrown upon the world with
no resources but their hands and
brains, to •figure themselyes James
Harper and a Thurlow Weed, tall, ath
letic, six foot high, splendid young
mon, of the host American typo, shak
ing off sleep ere dawn, and hurrying
to their business.
Human Life.
How truly does' the journey of a
single day, its changes and its hours;
exhibit - the history of a human life !
We rise up in a glorious freshness of a
spring morning. The dews of night,
those sweet tears of nature, arerhang
ing from each bough and leaf, and re
flecting the bright and myriad hues of
the morning. Our hearts are beating
with hope, our frames buoyant with
health. We see no cloud, we fear no
storm; and with our chosen and be=
loved companions 'clustering around
us, we commence our journey. Step
by step the scene becomes brighter.—
A few of our companions have'dropped
away; but the multitude remaining,
and the beauty of the scenery, their
loss is unfelt. Suddenly We have en
tered upon a new country. Tho deWs
of the morning are exhaled by the fer
vor of the noon day sun; the friends
that started with us are fast disap,
pealing. Some remain, but their looks
are cold and estranged; others have
become weary and have laid down to
rest; but now faces aro smiling on us,
new hopes beckoning us on. 'Ambi
tion and fame are before us, but youth
and affection are behind us. The scene
is more glorious and brilliant, but the
beauty and freshness of the morning
have faded, and forever. But still our
steps fail not, our spirits fitil not. On
ward and onward we go; the horizon
of happiness and fame recedes as we
advance to it; shadows begin to length,
en, and the chilling airs of evening are
usurping the fervor of the noonday.—
Still we press onward; the goal is not
yet won, the haven not reached. The
bright orb of Hope that has cheered us
on is sinking in the west; our limbs
begin to grow faint, and our hearts to
grow sad; we turn to gaze upon the
scenes we have passed, but 'the shad
ows of twilight have interposed their
vail between us; we leek around for
the old and familiar faces, the compa
nions of our travel, but wogazo in vain
to find them; wo have out-stripped
them all in our race after pleasure,
and, the phantom yet uncaught, in a
land of strangers, in a sterile and in
hospitable country, the midnight over
takes us—the dark and terrible night
time of death, and weary and heavy=
laden we lie down to rest in the bed
of the grave! Happy, thrice happy is
he, who bath laid up treasures in him
self for the distant and unknown 'to
morrow.— Charldom

Eating Men's Honor and Names,
If I were to take, you ,to my house,
and say that I had an exquisitely fat
man, and wished you to join me in
eating him, your indignatiOrreculd' be
restrainod by nothing. You' Would

not a . man in New Y,ork ; so' mean that
be would itiot;put me,doWti n man whO
would' propose to have a-banquet from
off a fellowlman; cu'tting etealtS out of
him and eating them. .And that _is
nothing but feasting,ou ti?e n human
dy; while they all . will sit down and
take a man'Ei soul and'look for` the tee
det; loins, and itiVite theirtteighborEi to
little:tit•bits.',:They• will take a;man's
honor and name, and .broil them over
the coals of -their indignation, and fill
the whole room witliAbe aroma there
from, and give:their neighbors a'pieco,
and wink as ho tastes it. You all 'eat
men up, and you ate , cannibals every
one of you, and worse. • You will be
glad to get off at God's judgment seat
with the plea, "I only ate the outside."
You eat the souls, the finest elements
of men. You are morn than glad if
you can whisper a word that is not de
rogatory to a neighbor, or his wife, or
his daughter., :And yet, by an oblique
senteneo, you make up i avorable
pressions on the mind of the person
addressed in respect to the subject of
your'eriticism. '"Ah'!" he says, "I had'
not been informed ;" and he goes to
the next neighbor and says, ;'Mr. So
and-so says this and that about So-and
so." And that neighbor says, "In
deed," and runs to his partner, and
they both run to their wives; and the
thing goes all over town. Everybody
becomes an unpaid devil's mail carri
er, and goes hero and there bearing,
infernal messages. And what is the
result ? It is damnation to some poor
creature that is unconscious, or that is
innocent or that if guilty ought to be
pitied and succored, rather than con
temned. But ah ! the morsel is too
exquisite to. be lost. Hero is the soul
of a person's hope for this world, and,
you have it on your fork, and you
cannot refrain from tasting it, and giv
ing it to some one else to taste. You
are cannibals, eating men's honor and
name, and- rejoicing in it, and that, too,
when you do not always know that
the things charged against theta aro
true; when in ninety-nine cases out of
a hundred, the probabilities are that
they are not true,---Beecher.
Didn't ()atoll the Train.
The most difficult thing, says a cyn
ical old hell, in the world for a woman
to do is to get ready to goanywhere,.
And there is nothing a woman will re
sent quicker or more fiercely than an
intimation, that she may possibly miss
the train. ,Our friends, Brayfoglo,
gives us an instance of this. Mr. Bray
fogle was supposed to take the ten
o'clock train on the 800 lino, to visit
some relative in an anterior town.—
Having suffered on,preVioes occasions
from injudicious, suggestions.. Bray
thought for once ho would let things
take their own coarse. So lad sipped
his coffee and ate , his eggs on toast,
while madame •curled and .powdered
and danced'attendaneb on the looking
glass and tied hair on the back 01 her
head. .
Then. Bray sat by the stove :in hour
reading the morning paper, while the
madame still continued , to get ready.
At last, just as he , had reached. the fi
nal paragraph, madame tied her bon-
net stringi under her chin, took one
long; lingering, loving look at the im
age reflected— in the 'glass,. and an;
nounced: •
"Well, my dear, Dm ready."
"Ready for - what?"' asked Bray, in
well affected 'astonishment. . .•
"To go to the depot, to be sure,!
said Mrs. Braylogle, tartly.
"Oh !" said Bray; "I'd forgotten.—
Well, madame," continued ho, looking
at his. watch, "that train has been gone
thirteen minutes. Just keep on your
things, and you'll be ready for 'the
train •to-morrow morning??
Wo draw a vail over what followed.
Wo aro assured, however, - that , the
nest morning Mrs. B. was ready an
hour ahead of timo.
