For all Diseases of the
Lirer, Kidneys, Stomach ana Spleen.
This purely vegetable pre-
faration. now so celebrated as a
axnily Medicine, originated in
the South in 1828. It acts
frently oa the Bowels and
Kidneys and corrects the
action of the Liver, and is, there
fore, the best preparatory
medicine, whate-er the sick
ness may prove to be. In all
common diseases it will, un
assisted by any other medi
cine, effect a speedy core.
The Regulator is safe to administer in any
condition of the system, and untlor no circum
stances can It do harm. It will invicorate
lile a class of vine, but is no intoxicating bever
age to lead to intemperance; will promotes di
gestion, dissipate headache, and gener
ally tono up the system. The dose is small,
not unpleasant, and its virtues undoubted.

ruption or stoppage of

Children complaining of
Colic, Headache, or Sick
Stomach, a teaspoonful or
more will give relief.
If taken occasionally by pa
tients exposed to MALARIA,
w ill expel the poison and protect
them from attack.
A PHTSIC1AV3 OPINION.
I have been practicing medicine for twenty vears.
and have never been able to put up a vegetable
compound that would, like Simmons Liver Regu
lator, prontptly and effectively move the Liver to
action, and at the same time aid (instead of weak
ening) the digestive and assimilative powers of the
system. L. M. liuirosc, M. D.,Washington, Ark.

The old saying that what is one
man's food is another man's poison
is realized in the opposite tastes of
people. The Turks shudder at
the thought of eating oysters.
The Digger Indians of the Pacific
coast rejoiced m the great locust
swarms of 1S75 as a dispensation
of the great spirit, and laid in a
store of dried locust powder suffi
cient to last them for several
years. The French will eat frogs,
snails and the diseased livers of
geese, but draw the line at alliga
tors. Buckland declares the
taste of boa constrictors to be
good and much like veal. Quass,
the fermented cabbage water of
the Russians, is their popular tip
ple. It is described as resembling
a misture of state fish and soap
suds in taste, yet, next to beer, it
has more votaries than any other
fermented beverage. A tallow
candle washed down with quass,
forms a meal that it would be hard
to be thankful for.
In Canton and other Chinese
cities rats are sold at the rate of
50 cents a dozen, and the hind
quarters of a dog are hung up in
the butcher's shop alongside of
mutton and lamb, but command a
higher price. The edible birds'
nests of the Chinese are worth
twice their weight in silver, the
finest variety selling for as much
as $30 a pound. The negroes
of the West Indies eat baked
snakes and palm worms fried in
fat, but they cannot be induced, to
eat stewed rabbit?. In Mexico
parrots are eaten, but they are
rather tough. The Guachos of the
Argentine Republic are in the
habit of hunting skunks for the
sake of their ilesh. The octopus,
or devil fish, when boiled and then
roasted, is eaten in Corsica and es
teemed a great delicacy. In- the
Pacific islands and West Indies
lizard eggs are eaten with gusto.
The natives of the Antilles eat
alligator eggs, and the eggs of the
turtle are popular everywhere,
though up to the commencement of
the last century turtle was only eat
en by the poor of Jamaica. Ants are
eaten by various nations. In Bra
zil they aro served with a resinous
sauce, and in Africa they are
stewed in grease or butter. The
East Indians catch them in pit
and carefully wash them in hnirl
fuls like raisins. In Siam a curry
of ant eggs is a costly luxury.
The Cingalese eat the bees after
robbing them of their honey.
Caterpilars and spiders are dainties
to the African bushmen. After
they have wound the silk from the
cocoon, the Chinese eat the chrys
alis of the silkworm. Spiders
roasted are a sort of dessert with
the New Caledonians.
The printing press has made
presidents, killed poets, furnished
bustles for beauties, and polished
genius with criticism. It has
made worlds get up at roll call
every morning, given- the pulpit
lungs of iron and a voice of steam.
It has set a price upon a bushel of
wheat, and made the county post
office the glimmering goal of the
rural scribe. It has sissailed the
power of kings, embellished the
pantry shelves, and bursted; it
has converted bankers into pau
pers, and made lawyers of college
presidents; it has educated the
homeless and robbed the philos
opher of his reason. It smiles and
kicks, and cries and dies, but it
can't be run to suit everybody,
and the editor is a fool who tries
it. Pell: Co. Itcmizer.

San Francisco. Aurr. 17. A
small riot occurred at J. Lusk's
canning establishment at Temes
cal yesterday afternoon. Fore
man Frank H. Mason was passing
through the cannerv when one of
the Chinamen applied a vile epi
thet to him. Mason resented it
by striking the Chinaman. The
entire force of Chinese, about 200,
most of whom were armed with
knives, attacked Mason, who was
compelled to take refuge in one of
the buildings and bar "the door,
which the Chinamen tried to beat
down. Mason secured a revolver,
and with the assistance of some of
the other eraoloves and the Chi
nese bosses succeeded in beating
back the rioters with clubs. The
rioters then auit work in a bodv.
