The First Sign
Of failing health, whether in the form of
Night Sweats and Nervousness, or in a
sense of General "Weariness and Loss of
Appetite, should suggest the use of
Ayer's Sarsaparilla. This preparation
is most effective for giving tone and
strength to the enfeebled system, pro
moting tho digestion and assimilation of
food,' restoring the nervous forces to
their normal condition, and forf purify
ing, enriching, and vitalizing the Wood.
Ten yedrs ago my health began to fail.
I was troubled with a distressing Cough,
Night Sweats, "Weakness, and Nervous
ness. I tried various remedies pre
scribed by different physicians, but
uecamo so weaK mat A could not go up

E. L. "Williams, Alexandria, Minn.
I have used Ayer's Sarsaparilla, in my
family, for Scrofula, and know, if it is
taken faithfully, that it will thoroughly
eradicate this terrible disease. I have
also prescribed it as a tonic, as well as an
alterative, and must say that I honestly
believe it to be the best blood medicino
ever compounded. "W. F. Fowler, M. D.,
D.D.S., Greenville, Tenn. -
It would be impossible for me to de
scribe what I suffered from Indigestion
aud Headache up to the time I began
taking Ayer's Sarsaparilla. I was under
the care of various physicians, and tried
a great many kinds of medicines, but
never obtained more than temporary re
lief. -After taking Ayer's Sarsaparilla
for a short time, my headache disap
peared, and my stomach performed its
duties more perfectly. To-day my
health is completely restored. Mary
Harley, Springneld, Mass.
I have been greatly benefited by the
prompt use of Ayer's Sarsaparilla. It
tones and invigorates the system, regu
lates the action of the digestive and
assimilative organs, and vitalizes the
blood. It is, without doubt, the most
reliable blood purifier yet discovered.

A CHANGE FOE TEE BETTER.
Three years acjo it was a com
mon saying- that the poorest prop
ert' a man could own was a sail
ing vessel of any kind. For the
smaller vessels there was very little
demand. A few went into the
cod-fishing business. Others
sought coal charters.. The tend
ency was to overload, because
freights were so low. The loss of
two or three square-rigged vessels
was traced directly to overloading.
The lumber business employed a
part of the second-hand vessels.
But more were laid up or were
riding at anchor without charters,
than were employed. The change
is radical one. Now there is hard
ly an unemployed vessel of mod
erate size, suitable for the coasting
business to be found anywhere.
In fact the demand has been much
better than the supply. Not
enough vessels could be procured
for the lumber trade, and orders
for southern ports were frequently
delayed for weeks because no
more vessels could be chartered.
The result is that an unusual
number of sailing vessels have
been launched this 3ear, and more
are on the stocks in the several
yards from San Francisco north to
the Sound than have been seen
for man' past years. The de
man discerns to be chiefly for
coasters carrying from 150,000 feet
of lumber up to 500,000 feet, and
which can carry corresponding car
goes of coal. These are mostly
schooners. The three-master and
four-master are getting to be fa
vorites. Another notable advance
is seen in the multiplication of
steam schooners ranging fron one
hundred and fifty to three hun
dred tons. The steam schooner
has evidently come to stay. The
large fore and aft schooner with
three masts, and sometimes four,
are doing such satisfactory work
that the number of this class of
vessels is now increasing at a
quickened rate. These good years
for coasters will more than make
amends for some dull years when
everybody said that ship property
A restraining order has been
granted at Seattle preventing the
Northern Pacific railroad ami other
parties from cutting and rennvi:..r
timber from government IamK in
the Cascade mountains. The -dor
holds until the 30th inst. Ac
cording to allegations made, the
timber being cut is valued at
5,000 per da', and some of the
timber is to be used in cons', met
ing a road 200 miles distant.
"Hundreds of young men will
vote for the first time next No
vember." The newspapers of all
parties are printing long articles
beginning with this statement.
They are correct; that's all right;
you can vote the first time, young
man, without any trouble." But
you keep your eye peeled when
you try it the second time, or they
will run you in, sure.
The losses by fire in the United
States for the twelve mouths end

equal to the aggregate gold and

the last year. In some European
countries rigid building regula

output during the past twelve

1YRENOHBX HIS BACK.
LyxdoxyilXiE, Orleans Co., N.Y.)
April 2, 1885. )
About a year ago, I imprudently
stepped off the Hudson River cars
while they were .in motion. In try
ing to save myself from a fearful fall
I wrenched my back terribly. The
next day I could not walk, and I suf
fered pain from my neck to my heels.
Various applications were made, but
nothing which was done abated my
suffering. Being anxious to get up
and attend to business, I deter
mined to place three Allcock's Por
ous Plasters, one above tho other,
on my back. In about an horn and
a half they caused considerable itch
ng. The pain and soreness sens
ibly decreased, and I rested pretty
well that night. The next morning
the itching began to be quite severe
under the plasters. To get some re
lief, I had my back well rubbed
crossways over the Plasters. I was
surprised within two hours after
wards to find the pain and soreness
almost gone. I staye in bed that
day; and the morning afterwards I
got up and attended to business.
O. Y. PTTMAN. :
A Scientific Truth.
The idea that human beings
should always sleep with their
heads to the north is generally re
garded as a baseless superstition
or one of those fanciful theories
for which no reasonable or sub
stantial foundation can be assigned.
French scientists, however, main
tain that the idea is supported by
a positive scientific truth. They
affirm that every human system is
in itself an electric battery, the
head being one of the electrodes,
the feet the other. Their proof
was discovered from experiments
which the Academy of Sciences
was allowed to make on the body
of a man who was guillotined.
This was taken the instant it fell,
and placed upon a pivot, free to
move as it might. The head part,
after a little vacillation, turned to
the north and the body the body
then remained stationary. It was
turned half way around hy one of
the professors, and again the head
end of the trunk turned slowly to
the cardinal point, due north, the
same results being repeated until
the final cessation of organic move
ment. Mrs. Cleveland is reported as
saying that she wouid neversit for
a photograph again while she re
mained mistress of the "White
House. Some of the prints used
as advertising signs are said to be
