HOW TO CURE CONSUMPTION.
THE PHILOSOPHY OF DR. SCHENCK'S GREAT
3IEDICINFS.—WiII people never learn to know that a
diseased liver and stomach necessarily disease the entire
system 7 The plainest principles of eOIIIMOII sense tench
this and yet there lire hundreds who ridicule the ids a,

brings them preninturely to the grirse. Living ns the
majority of the people do, lit complete variance With the
laws of nature, it most be emu rut to all that. sooner or
later, nature V, ill resenge herself. Hones We find Hint
persons v. ho indulge to excess in the use of very rich or
indigestible food or intoxicating drinks, invariably pay
heavy penalty in the end. The stomach becomes dis
ordered and refuses to net: the liver fails to pet form its
functions, dyspepsia and its attendant evils follow, and
still the suffering indhiduals persist in clinging to ,the
thoroughly exploded idea of the past. Dr. SCHENK'S
medicines are recommended to all such. They bring sure
and certain relief Wherever they are used an directed,
and all that is necessary to establish their reputation
with every ailing nun or woman in the, laud is a fair and
impartial trial of them. Let those who are skeptical on
this point, and Who have permitted interested poroens to

consumption. discard their prejudices, and be governed
by the principles of reason and common sense. If the
system is disordered depend upon it, In nine cases out of
ten the sent of the disorder mil be found in the stomach
and liver. To cleanse end invigorate the stomach and to
stimulate the liver to healthy action, use

ly bey and the reach of medical relief. -
It may be asked by those who ass not familiar with
this virtues of these great remedies,' How do Dr. Schenck's
medicines effect their wonderful cures of consumption 7"
The answer is a simple one. They begin their Mork
of restoration by bringing the stomach, liver and bowels
into an active healthy condition. It i s food that cures
this formidable disease. SCIIENCK'S MANDRAKE
PILLS act on ihe liver and stomach, promoting healthy
secretion, and removing the bile and slime which hags
resulted Dorn the inactive or torpid condition of those or
gays, and of the system generally. This sluggish state
of the body, and the consequent nccumulation of the un
benlthy substances named prevent the proper digestion
of food, and, as a natural consemence creates disease,
which results in prostration and finally in death..
SCHENCK'S PULMONIC SYRUP and SEAWEED TON.
IC, when taken regularly, mingle with the food, and tho
digestive organs, make good and rich blood. and as a nat
ural consequence, give flesh and strength to the patient.
Let the faculty say what it may, this is tho only true
cure for consumption. Experience lies proved beyond
the shadow of a doubt, and thousands are to-day alive
and well ulna a few years since were regarded as hope
less cases, but who were induced to try Dr. SCHENCK'S
remedies, and were restored to permanent health by
One of the first steps the physician should take with
a consumptive patient is to invigorrte the system. Now
how is this to be done ? Certainly not by giving medi
cines that exhaust and enervate—medicines that impair
instead of improve the functions of the digestive organs
Doctor SCHENCK'S medicines cleanse the stomach and
boucle of all substances utile!, are calculated to irritate
or a eakeu them. 'they create au appetite—promote
healthful digcstion—make good blood, and, as a conse
quence, they invigorate and strengthen the entire sys
tem and more especially those parts which aro discesed
If this cannot be done, then the case most be regarded as.
a hopeless one.
If the physician finds it impassible to make a patient
feel hungry, if the deceased person cannot partake of good
nourishing food and properly digest it, it is impossible
that he can gain its flesh and strength; and it is equally
impossible to bring is patient to this eond ition so long as
the liver is burdened stills diseased bile, and the stomach
Laden a ills unhealthy slime.
Almost the first request made to the physician by a
consumptive patient is that he will prescribe medicines
that will allay the cough, night sweats nod chills, which
are the sure attendants on consumption. But this should
not be done, as ih• cough is only an effort of nature to
relieve itself, auJ the night raven ts and chills are enticed
by the diseased The remedies ordinarily prescrib•
ed do more bum than good. The) impair the functions
of the stomach, impede henna} digestion, and aggravate

Though thy brethren be unkind:

Ere has fled the vital breath,
Cold and clamp, the sweat of death—
Then the little thou bast done
Little battles thou host won,
Little masteries achieved,
Little wants with care relieved, •
Little words in love expressed,
Little wrongs at once confessed,
Little favors kindly done,
Little toils thou didst not shun,
Little graces meekly worn; -
Little slights with patience borne—
These shall crown thy pillowed head,
Holy light upon thee shed.
These are treasures that shall rise
Far beyond the shining skies.

"Please, sir, will you buy my chest
"Chestnuts ! No !" returned Ralph
Moore, looking carelessly down on the
upturned face whose large, brown
eyes, shadowed by tangled curls of
flaxen hair, were appealing so pitifully
to his own.
"What do I want with chestnuts?"
"But, please sir, buy 'em," pleaded
the little ono, reassured by the rough
kindness of his tone. "Nobody seems
to care for them, and—and—"
Sho fairly burst into tears, and Mr.
Moore, who had been on the point of
brushing carelessly past her, stopped
"Are you very much in want of the
"Indeed, sir, wo are," sobbed the
child; mother sent mo out, and—
" Nay, little ono, don't cry in such a
heart-broken way," said Ralph, smoo
thing her hair down with careless gen
"I don't want your chestnuts, but
here's a quarter for you, if that will do
you any good."
Ho did not stay to hear tho delight
ed incoherent thanks the child poured
out through a rainbow of smiles and
tears, but strode on his way, mutter
ing between his teeth—
" That cut off my supply of cigars
for the next twenty-four hours. I
don't care though; the brown-eyed ob
ject did cry as if it hadn't a friend in
the world. Hang it! I wish I was
rich enough to help every poor crea
ture out of the slough of despond !"
While Ralph Moore was indulging
in these very natural reflections, the
dark-eyed little damsel whom he had
comforted was dashing down the street
with quick, elastic footsteps, utterly
regardless of the basket of unsold nuts
that still dangled upon her arm. Down
an obscure lane she darted, between
tall ruinous rows of houses, and up a
narrow wooden stair case to a room
where a pale, neat looking woman
with large - brown eyes like her own,
was sowing as busily as if the breath
of life depended upon every stitch, and
two little ones were contentedly play
ing in the sunshine, that temporarily
supplied the place of the fire.
"Mary ! back already 7 Surely you
have not sold your chestnuts Bo soon ?"
"0, mother, mother, see !" ejaculated
the breathless child, "a gentleman
gave me a whole quarter. Only think,
mother, a whole quarter !"
If Ralph Moore could only have
seen the rapture which his tiny silver
gift diffused around it in the poor wi
dow's poverty-stricken home, he would
have urged still less the temporary
privation of cigars to which his gene
rosity had subjected him.
OREBNI: & BRO ,
Years came and wont. Tho little
chestnut girl passed as entirely out of
Ralph Moore's memory as if pleading
eyes had never touched the soft spot
in his heart, but Mary Lee never for
got the stranger who had given her
the silver piece.
The crimson window curtains wore
closely drawn to shut out the storm
and tempest of the bleak December
night—the fire was glowing cheerily
in the woll-fillod grate, and the dinner
table in a glitter with cut glass, rare
china and polished silver, was only
waiting for the presence of Mr. Audloy.
"What can it bo that detains papa?"
said Mrs. Audley, a fair, handsome ma
tron of about thirty, as sho glanced at
the dial Of a tiny enameled watch.—
"Six o'clook, and he does not make
his, appearance;" - '
"There's a man with him in the'stu
cly, mamma—comp on business," said
Robert Audloy, a pretty boy, cloven
years old, who was reading by the fire.
"I'll call him again," said Mrs. And
ley, stepping to the door.
But, as ho opened it; the brilliant
gas light fell full on the face of an
humblo looking man, in worn and
threadbare garments, who was leaving
the houso, while her husband stood iu
the doorway of his Study, apparently
relieved to be rid of his visitor.

note .this evening. I believe I've got
his address about me somewhere."
An hour or two later, when Bobbie,
Frank and Eugene were snugly tucked
in bed - in the spacious nursery above
stairs, Mrs. Andloy told her busbabd
why she was so interested in the fate
of a man- whom she had not seen for
"That's right, my little wife," re
plied her husband, folding her fondly
to his breast, when the. simple tale
was concluded, "never forget ono who
has been kind to you in the days when
you needed kindness most."

Ralph Moore was sitting in his poor
lodging beside his ailing . wife's sick
bed, when a liveried servant brought
a note from the rich and prosperous
bank director Charles Audley.
"Good news, Bertha'!" he exclaimed
as he read the brief words. "We shall
not starve—Mr. Audley promises me
the vacant situation."
"You have dropped something froin
the note, Ralph," said Mrs." Moore,
pointing to a slip of paper on the floor.
Moore stooped to recover the estray.
It was a fifty ~dollar bill neatly folded
in a piece of paper, on which was writ
ten: "In grateful remembrance of a
silver quarter that a kind stranger be
stowed on a little chestnut girl over
twenty years ago."
Ralph Moore bad thrown his morsel
of bread on the waters, and after ma
ny days it had returned to him.
TIIOUGUTS DURING A DAY.—If the
thoughts which pass through the mind
of a person for a day were gathered to
gether and placed in the order in which
they first appeared, what a mountain
of ideas would be brought to view!
They would form a monster quilt of
patchwork, checkered with pieces of
every shape, size and hue. They would
prove time, space and order to be non
entities compared with thought. The
speed they travel from place to
place as far exceeds that of electricity
as the rapidity of motion of that anni
hilated substance does an ordinary ca
nal boat. One thought is resting upon
the edibles for breakfast; the next, in a
second of time, has traversed the uni
verse and reached the sun's centre, won
dering what it is made of; while the
third bilibbring into_the snow wreaths
that circle round the top oflit. Blanc.
Then follows half a thought on death ;
twenty on the means of keeping alive;
two on the former Presidents, and ten,
on the President elect; three on anew
coat, and one on getting a pair of boots
mended ; six on change of life, and
twelve on the change in pocket. And
if the thinker should chance to be an
editor, a thought of pieces of shocking
murders, horrible accidents, funny
stories, sentiment, poetry and tele
graph news. Never for a moment, is
the brain at rest, only differing in in
tensity the mind of the giddy maiden
and the profound philosopher, are over
busy with thoughts, noble or com mon•
place, revelling in pleasure's busy
whril or soaring aloft into the myste
rics of the universe.
Our. I-lANDs.—The human hand is so
beautifully formed, a fine sensi
bility governs its notions so correctly,
every effort of the is will answered so
instantly, as if the hand itself were
the seat of the will; its actions arc so
free, so powerful and yet so delicate,
thnt it seems to (possess a quality in
stinct in itself, and wo use it as we
draw our breath, unconsciously, and
have lost all recollections of the feeble
and ill-directed effort of its first exer
cise, by which it has been perfeeted..
In the hand there are twenty-nine
bones from the mechanism of which
result strength, mobility and elastici
ty. On the length, strength, free.late
ral motion, and perfect mobility of the
thumb, depends the power of the hand,
its strength being equal to that of all
the fingers. Without the fleetly ball
of the thumb, the power of the fingers
would avail nothing; and accordingly.
the large ball formed by the muscles of
the thumb is the distinguishing char
acter of the human hand.
