Daat few vears. has rone forward, is
patent to observant individuals. Among
tne substantial evidences ot progress
may be noted many handsome new
structures, then there arc more flowers
than in former years, the streets arc
better kept, and there are visible prools
that the painter is-abroad. We have
water-works which, aside from their
practical utility, add much to the beauty
ot the city in the way of improvised

Benefits of Lemonade.
Lemons are very cheap now and
they should be used extensively at this
season of tbe year. Most people know
the value of lemonade before breakfast,
but few know how it is more than
doubled by taking it at night also.
Tbe way to get tbe best of a billious
system without the u?e of pills or quin-
me is to take the juice of one. two or
three lemons, as the appetite craves, in
as much ice water as makes ii pleasant
to drink, without sugar, before
going to bed. In the morning
on rising, or half an hour be
fore breakfast, take the juice of one
'.cm on in a goblet of water. This will
clear the system of humors and bile
with mild efficiency, without any of the
weakening effects of ca'omel or con
gress water. People should not iiritate
the stomach b eating lemons clear.
The powerful acid of tbe iuice, which
s almost corrosive, invariably produces
inflammation after a while, but diluted
so that it does not burn or draw the
throat, it docs its lull medical work
without harm, and when the stomach
is clear ot food has abundant opportuni
ty to work on tbe system thoroughly.
