I cause it may have fallen out) and forcing agrowth
of hair upon the face it has no equal. It will force the
beard to grow upon the smoothest face in from five to
eight weeks, or hair upon bald heads in from two to
three months. A few ignorant practitioners have as
serted that there is nothing that will force or hasten
the growth of the hair or beard Their assertions are
false, as thousands of living witnesses (from their own

Teas for the People. JSo more Enormous
Profits for Consumers to Pay.
Fifty Cents to One Dollar per Pound Sav
ed by Buying your Teas direct
from the Importers.
T. Y. RKT.T.K V & CO., Importers of Teas, in connection
wltli tlieir large wholesale business, have determined to
introduce their Teas directly to consumers at importers'
prices, thus effecting a saving to the consumer o I 40 to CO
per cent. Families can now club together for any kind or
qualities of Teas, tn packages of one pound and upwards,
and we will send them a superior article of Tea at 5 per
cent, above the cost of Importation. Let some energetic
lady or other person tn each neighborhood call upon tier
acquaintances and take their orders for any of the folio-v
--ing named Teas, and w hen a club of ten, twenty, or more
is obtained, send to us and we will send the Teas put up in
separate packages, with the name of each person marked
on it. all enclosed in one box. As a FURTHER INDUCEMENT
to the person getting up the club we will send for his or
her services, an extra complimentary package on nil or
ders of S3O and upward. It is perhaps not well understood'
WHY we can sell teas so very low; but when it is taken
into consideration that besides the original cost of impor
tation. the Broker, Speculator, Jobber, Wholesale Dealer
and Retailer, has each to reap a large profit and the innu
merable Cartages, Cooperages, Insurances. Storages. 4c.,
which teas have to pass through before they reach the
consumer, will read'ly explain this. We propose to do
away with seven-eights of these profits aud expenses, and
I It now remains with Hie PEOPLE to say whether they shall
save 50 cents to 81.00 per pound on every pound of Tea
they purchase, or be compelled to give their earnings to a
host of useless go-betweens.

can be accommodated with small packages to suit their

on Colfees being very small,) yet we can sell Coffees fully

Has pierced rne; and'my weary feet all torn
And bleeding mark the way. Yet Thy command
Bids me press forward. Father, take my hand,

The gross revenue of the line for 1866
is equal to $46,322 41 per mile of main
line of road (358 miles) and is less than
the aggregate receipts in 1865, $575,286 65.
The total decrease is $875,286 65. The
whole number of passengers carried in
1865 was 2,861,836, and during the past
year, 2,673,568. The average distance
traveled by each passenger was 52 miles,
and the previous year 714 miles; this differ
ence being due to the larger amount of
through travel and troops in 1865.
The number of tous of freight moved
(including 266,359 tons of fuel and other
materials, transported for the Company)
was 3,452,718, embracing 1,413,181 tons of

A Thirty Thousand Dollar Jot).
Tho head clerk ot a large firm in
Charlestown promised an old customer,
one day, half a bale of .Russia duck to
be on hand precisely at ono o'clock,
whon the man was to leave town with
his goods. The firm wero out of duck,
and the clerk went over to Boston to
buy some. Not finding a truckman,
ho hired a man to take it over on his
wheelbarrow. Finishing other busi
ness, on his return to Charlestown, the
clerk found tho man not half way over
the bridge, sitting on his barrow, half
dead with heat.
What was to be done ? It was then
half past twelve, and tho goods wero
promised at one. There was not a
moment to lose. In spite of tho heat,
the dust, and his fine light summer
clothes, the young man seized the
wheelbarrow and pushed on.
Pretty soon a rich merchant, whom
the young man knew very well, riding
on horseback, overtook him ' What,'
said he,' Mr. Wilder turned truckman?'
'Yes,' answered tho clerk. 'The
| goods are promised at one o'clock, and
my man has given out; but you see I
am determined to bo as good as my
' Good bye !' said tho gentleman, and
started on.
Calling at the store where tho young
man was employed, he told his em
ployer what ho had seen, 'And I want
you to tell him.' said the gentleman,
' that when ho goes into business for
himself, my name is at his service for
thirty thousand dollars.'
Reaching the store, which ho did in
time, you may bo sure the high price
set on his conduct made amends for
the heat, anxiety, and fatigue of the
Keeping his word. You see how im
portant it is regarded. It is one of
the best kinds of capital a business
man can have. To be worth much to
anybody, a boy must form a character
for reliability. Ho must bo depended
upon. And you will like to know per
haps that this young man becamo ono
ot the most eminent merchants of his
day, known far and wide, both in Eu
rope and this country. His name was
S. V. S. Wilder, and ho was tho first
President of the American Tract Soci
ety. — Exchange.
What a Squirrel Did.
We cut the following from the New
buryport Herald : ' A gentleman from
Newbury treated us the other day to
some walnuts, which wo should, per
haps, have refused, on the principle
that the receiver is as bad as the thief,
had wo known where they were ob
tained before it was too late. They
were part of the store of a striped
squirrel, which he had laid up in a hol
low tree. There were in all five quarts,
which he had carried up one by one,
from a tree an eighth of a mile distant.
The holo ran into the tree in a hori
zontal direction, so that its capacity
would have" been very small, as tho
nuts would have rolled out without
some modification in its arrangement,
which Mr. Bunny proceeded to mako
with a good deal of architectural skill,
his movements being daily watched by
our informant. Ho first built up a
breastwork of clay, sticks, nutshells
and other rubbish at the mouth of his
magazine, an inch or two high, and
then filled it up with his provisions,
till it would hold no more. He then
added another course of mason work
and another deposit of nuts, add so on
till at tho time of the vandal's raid on
the little fellow's commissariat, tho
wall was about a foot high. The pec
ulation was considered justifiable on
the ground that man was created lord
over all tho beasts of tho field, and that
it was no worse to mako a squirrel
work for him than to make a horse or
an ox do it. Besides, our friend kind
ly gave the fourdegged slave his time
for tho rest of the season, and in a
week or two ho had laid in a new sup
ply for himself and family.'
Honey Ant of Texas.
A Texas paper of a late date, speak
ing of the lioney Ant, says: I Wo have
often heard of the < honey ant' of Tex
as, but the account seeming so roman
tic, we have hardly been able to credit
it, but as we now have a specimen be
fore as furnished by our friend Leo
Smith, of this city we can no longer
have any doubts on the subject. These
ants are a medium size between the
large and small red ants, and are of a
reddish and brown color. Appended
to the rear of each one, is a translucent
sack or globe filled with pure, clear
honey of a most delicious flavor. These
sacks vary in size on different ants—
ranging between the size of a buckshot
and a navy pistol ball. On this sack,
at short interval, are attached thin
layers about the length and width of
half a grain of rice, and of a dark color
evidently to strengthen it and keep it
in shape, lheso interesting animals
when they crawl draw their delicious
load after them, and if the sacks are
