'HE SHAVER'S SOLILOQUY.
shave, or not to shave 1 the question is,
:bother 'tis better on the human phiz
::o lot accumulation of our hair,
:over the chins and lips which now are bare ;
Or to continue still to scrape away
The hirsute ornament from day to day—
To lather, shave, perchance to gash the face ?
Ay, there's the rub ; for in this case,
What mis'ry's ours! 'Tin this must give us pause
And make us rather let alone our jaws,
Than by continuance in the barbarous use
Cut, scratch and lacerate them like the deuce.
For if it actually were the ease,
That Nature never meant the human face
To be no teased and tortured as it is--
If so, I say, why then what business
Have mortals virtually to cry out
That Nature knew not what she was about
Why, since the beard was evidently meant
To grow, should man be seemingly intent
On trying to prove Nature was a dunce,
And did not know her trade? Why not at once
Pluck out the eyebrows and extract the nails,
And shave the heads of females and of males?
Strange 'tis that men should worship fashion so,
As to be willing thus to undergo
The pains of shaving, rather than permit
Moustache and heard to grow as they think fit
How singular, that moo should still delight
In torturing their faces, when they might
Themselves their comfort, ease and health obtain
By vowing they will never shave again
But 'Liu the dread of ridicule and scorn
Makes the foal fashion easy to be borne.
Thus custom of us all doth cowards make ;
And for this savage custom, then, we take
The trouble and the pains our chins to mow,
Because it is the fashion to do so.
But thus, our chins will soon oc;;tore, I hope,
Be lathered o'er with the pale suds of sonp •
Soon shall moustache and beard again on a ll
Our chins wag merrily in street and hall!

The Deaf Aunt and Deaf Wife.
I had an aunt coming to visit me for the
first time since my marriage, and I don't
know what evil genius prompted the wick
edness I perpetrated towards my wife and
my ancient relative.
'My dear,' said I to my wife the day be
fore my aunt's arrival, you know Aunt
Maty is coming tomorrow ; well, I forgot
to mention a rather annoying circumstance
with regard to her. She is very deaf ; and
although she can hear my voice, to which
she is accustomed, in its ordinary tones,
yet you will be obliged to speak extreme
ly bud in order to be heard. It will be
rather disagreeable, but I know you will
do anything in your power to make her
Mrs S. announced her determination to
make herself heard if possible.
I went to John who loves a joke
about as well as any person I know of,
and told him to be at the house at 6 P. M.
on the following evening.
I went to the depot next night with a
carriage and when I was on the way home
with my aunt, I said—
'Aly dear aunt, there is one rather an•
noying infirmity which Anna (my wife)
has, which I forgot to mention •before.—

a similar attitude, and I think that from the

and our attempt to restrain our laughter,
apoplexy must have inevitably ensued, if

The Potato of the Future.
A correspondent of the New York Tri- 1
bune makes the following announcement :
SlR:—About a year ago I conceived the
idea of producing the mammoth size of the
petrified remains of plants, which we meet
with in the study of geology, by means of
an excess in supply of carbonic acid. I
constructed an iron vessel, in which I gen
erated carbonic acid gas by means of dren
ching limestone with vinegar. This I in
fused into the soil in a flower-pot in which
I had planted a potato. I did this daily;
also I put the flower-pot into an iron vessel
I filled with the carbonie acid, and covered
to prevent diffusion. At the end of about
six months the plant reached the height of
four feet, and bore a pale blossom. In a
week more the pot was split. [took out
the plant, and a single potato (beside the
remains of that I planted), of about eight
inches in diameter, was at the root. By
planting this and treating it in the canto
manner, I hope to obtain potatoes of the size
of a barrel.

Five to eight bottles will cure the worst case

A benefit is always experienced from the first '
bottle, and n perlect cure is warrunted when the
above quantity is taken.
Reader, I peddled over a thousand bottles of
this in the vicinity of Boston. I knew the effect
of it in every ease. So sure as water will extin
guish fire, so sure will this cure humor. I never
sold a bottle of it but that sold another; after a
trial it always speaks for itself. There are two
tbings about this herb that appear to me surpri
sing ; first that it grows in our pastures, in seine
places quite plentiful, and yet its value has never
been known until I discovered it in l446—second
that it should cure all kinds of humor.
In order to give some idea of the sadden rise
and great popularity of the discovery. I will
state that in April, 1853, 1 peddled it nod sold
about six bottles per day—is April, 1854, I sold
over one thousand per Jay of it.
Some of the wholesale Druggists who have
been in business twenty and thirty years, say
that nothing in the nasal; of patent medicines
was ever like it. Th. re i> a universal praise of
it from all quarters.
In my own practice I always kept it strictly for
humors—but since its introduction as a general
family medicine, great and wonderful - virtues
have been found is it that I never suspected.
Several cases of epileptic lits—a dine se which
was always considered incurable, have been cu
