"C.J. B. VV illiams, M. Li., F. It. 8., Professor of Medi

! cum to the Hospital for consumption, fee., says: I have
prescribed the Oil in above four hundred cases of tubercu
lous disease of the Lungs, in different stages, whir h have
been under my care the last two years and a half. In
j the large number of cases, 206 out 0f231, its use was fol
lowed by marked and unequivocal improvement, varying
in degree in different cases, from a temporary retard.r
--1 tion of the progress of the disease and a mitigation of dis
i tressing symptoms, up to a more or less complete restor
] ation to apparent health.
" The effect of the Cod Liver Oil in most of tin cases
was very remarkable. Even in a few days the cough
was mitigated, the etpecloration diminished in quantity
and opacity, the night sweats ceased, the puis became
slower, and of better volume, and the appetite, llesb and
strength were gradually improved.
"In conclusion, I repeat that the pure fresh oil from
the Liver of the Cod is more beneficial in the treatment
i of Pulmonary Consumption than any agent, medicinal,
dietetic or regitneii.il, that has yet been employed "
As tee hart made arrangements to procure the Coil / irer
Oil, frisk from head quarters, it can note he hud ehtiniru.'i y
pare by the single bottle, or in botes of one uuZ'ti each.
Its wonderful efficacy has induced numerous spurious

too much care cannot be used in procuring it genuiiu .

A stranger dismounted at ihe door of the
Hotel, and wave his horse to the offi
cious waiter. The bar-keeper opened the
register to take his name.
•• Aou are right," said he, 44 a single
room would he more agreeable," and he
walked into the supper-room lo which
the crowd of hoarders were passing. The
bar-keeper ran alter him, screaming in
ins ear—
-44 What name did vou say V 1
44 Thank you," said he 44 I ran find the
way; don't put yourself to any trouble."
On his return to the bar-room, a waiter
took up his saddle-bags, and told the deaf
stranger he would show him to his cham
•• My friend, who will spend the even
ing with me prefers plain cherry,"
said he. 44 Aou may send up a bottle,
and a few cigars."
44 1 did not," said the bar-keeper, 44 ex
actly understand your name."
•• 1 think'a little ice would improve the
wine," was the answer. 44 And now I
iliink of it, you may put the bottle in a
\t ine-cooler." His friend now joined him,
and they walked to his room together.
The deaf lodger patronized the house to
the extent of another bottle, before he
slept. The waiter who brought it up.
ventured once more to inquire iiis name.
"Nothing more," said he "except a slice
of cold ham, a pickle, and a little bread
and cheese." The next morning after
breakfast when the stranger's horse was
at the door, he asked for his bill, lie
was told that it was six dollars and three
4 * You are very kind, I had expected to
pay you : but if this is your custom, to
charge nothing for the first visit, you shall •
not lose b\ it—all my friends in Sponge

call when they come into this city—good
44 1 would thank you to pay your hill
before you go," screamed the bar-keeper.
•* I am obliged lo you," said the deaf
gentleman. -• 1 can put them on ;" and
lie took up his saddle-bags and departed.
\s he mourted, the bystanders began to
laugh immoderately at the awkward em
barrassment which afflicted the bar-keeper,
who was in despair, while he bawled after
the delinquent who continued bowing, and
repeating his assurances, that he would
certainly remember the accommodations,
civility, and liberality of the house, and
recommend it to all his friends who might
pass through the city. The gentleman
who so well affected deafness won the
wager he had staked on the success of his ;
scheme, and paid his hill the next time he i
\ isited the city.

riding ?"
44 Why, it's daddy's."

44 Good morning."
44 Good morning. Aou didn't come it
that time, stranger."
The original classic saying which has
degenerated into 44 O take your time Miss
Lucy Long!" may be found in an old.
and in fact, obsolete edition of Jonsing and
Jumbo. The text is there set down, as
near as can he rendered conveniently from
ihe original latin, thus :
44 O, horam tibi carpc,
Mi Luciana Loni;!
O, carpe diem, [VVhar be
De subjee ob my song rj
In Congo squarum somna,
De negro snorum strong ;

A BAD MF.MOUY.—A man in the coun
try a few days asm led a blooming widow
to the altar. The clergyman looked at
the bridegroom and said,
" I think you have a wife living !"
"Have I, do you think ?" replied the
" 1 am sure you have," rejoined the
" 1 really, sir," said the fellow, " have
a very bad memory, and 1 thank you lor
jogging it. 1 now recollect something of
A certain good deacon's hat blew off
and led him a long chase after it through
the street. At length the deacon became
exhausted in the race, arid pulled up
against a post by the side-walk. A gen
tleman came along to whom the deacon
addressed himself thus :
"My friend. 1 am a deacon of the
church, aud it is very wrong lor me to
swear; \ou will therefore greatly oblige
me if you will just damn that hat for me."
