DR. C. MoLANE'S
rOR THE CURE OF
Hepatitis, or Liver Complaint,
DYSPKrSIA. AND SICK HBADACHB.
Symptoms of a Diseased Liver.
PAIN in the right side, under the
edge of the ribs, increases on pres
sure; sometimes the paiti is in the left
side; the patient is rarely able to lie
on the left side; sometimes the pain is
felt under the shoulder bladejmnd it
frequently extends to the top of the
shoulder, and is sometimes mistaken
for rheumatism in the arm. The
stomach is affected with loss of appe
tite and sickness; 'the bowels in gen
eral are costive, sometimes alternative
with lax; the head is troubled with
pain, accompanied with a dull, heavy
sensation in the back part. There is
generally a considerable loss of mem
ory, accompanied with a painful sen
sation of having 'left undone some
thing which ought to have been done.
A slight, dry cough is sometimes an
attendant The patient complains of
weariness and debility; he is easily
startled, his feet are cold or burning,
and he complains of a prickly sensa
tion of the skin; his spirits arc low;
and although he is satisfied that exer
cise would be beneficial to him, yet
he can scarcely summon up fortitude
enough to try it. In feet, he distrusts
every remedy. Several of the above
symptoms attend the disease, but cases
\ have occurred where few of them ex
listed, yet examination of the body,
after death, has shown the LIVER to
have been extensively deranged.
AGUE AND FEVER.
DR. C MCLANE'S LIVER PILLS, IN
CASES or AGUE AND FEVER, when
taken with Quinine, are productive of
the most happy results. No better
cathartic can be used, preparatory to,
or after taking Quipine. We would
advise all who are afflicted with this
disease to give them a FAIR TRIAL.
For aH bilious derangements, and as
a simple purgative, they are unequaled.

One autumn afternoon two gontlenien

As the elder ot the two. a fine looking

pearl colored, three buttoned kids.

Durwood Morrell sinilod a sunshiny

'lt must be a pretty hand.' said Am

then tucking it in his vest pocket.
'Yes,' a baud that can drain on the

'Well, old boy, what would yon have

'Nonsense! Most women can do some

'Yes, but I admire a woman who
