FOR THE CURE OF
Hepatitis, or Liver Complaint,
BYsrsniA AND not MEADACH*.
Symptoms of a Diseased Liver.
PAIN 1 in the right side, under the
edge of the ribs, increases on pres
sure; sometimes the pain is in the left
side; the patient is rarely able to lie
on the left side; sometimes the pain is
felt under the shoulder bUde, and 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
veral are costive, 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 are 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 fact, he distrusts
every remedy. Several of the above
symptoms attend the disease, but cases
have occurred where few of them ex
isted, yet examination of the body,
aftsr death, has shown the LIVE* to
have been extensively deranged.

Making his way quickly in the direc

gaping wound. The moon's rays shone
full upon a ghastly face.

whither they would.
The night wore hi avily away. Each
moment as he paced the floor of the room
in wtnoh lie had been confined, awaiting
his examination, revealed to him the bid
eoußiicsß of his position. '
Not yet had he washed the blood staius
from his hands. His eyes seemed fasci

morning he knew would come tin
question, 'What motive prompted your
presence,in the Larou's private park at
such an hoar?' And to this question he
could assign no answer. 1

a motive for the deed. Jealousy of the

in securing. Uis own noble name, bis
