"Schnapps" is a remedy in chronic catarrhal

I take great pleasure in bearing highly cred

the diseases for which you recommend it. Hav

a one of the nio( important remedies in chron

awful warning to scolding wives conies to
us from Milwaukie. A woman in that
city was "jawing her children, and
neighbors, a hired girl, and everybody in
general, when her husband entered and
interposed a mild word. She opened her
mouth for an angry reply, but a spasm
contracted her check, her lower jaw . Tell,
and she could neither speak nor shut her
mouth, but remained JUt, ijiat, cond itjon, her
tongue J;ung .out, and her eyes nearly
started out of their sockets. She had dis
located her jawbone in her violen; effort
to make u stinging reply to her husband.
A surgeon was calj.ei), wljo reduced the

prescribed a gruel diet. The old man is

had for forty years.
A Ludicrous Situation. One of the

It illustrates this scene; An old gent is

Washington made but few epigram,

Did you ever hear of old John Dick

1668 : 'By uniting we stand, by divid

Patrick Henry, as every school boy
kuows, gave us: "Give me liberty or give

Napoleon had many quo'alle epigram

Jefferson' writings are so besprinkled
that it is difficult to select. 'Few die and
none resign,' ce taiuly is as applicable to
office-holders now as in Jefferson time.

THINGS THAT MUS'BE DONE.
There are some thing that must be
done. The sooner we do them the bet

burden grows, and the harder the work
seems to be. There is a time for all
things ; and things are morn easily done
at the Vigtiriffne than at any other time.
We conqu'-r in the fight of faith ny in

and disobedience ends m death.

Just as our troubles and temptations

"Stand up my soul shake off thy fears,

8UICIDB Ol' A CANTATRICE
SOMEWHAT OK A MYSTERY,
Few of oar tbcalre going people lat
win remember im beaetilul Amelia Ur-J
cia, who, for tbree or four suecrseive'sea.
eons, wen obouudrd applause on tbe
Uge of our principal theatre. Yonng.
lovlr, and accomplished, the wonderful
harm of ber voice was augmented by
great personal attract! ns. Gay, fasci
nating, and brilliant, she won admirers
by lb core, and at ene lime in lb
beiiffit of ber theatrical tame was tbe
aofaBrbt after and lh ackoaISc4
beaety of ber pre
f her prefeeeion.
That such a woman should have ad
deiily died whbout ber death bring made
known I surprising. Nor will the pub
lie mrprffo be lessened when tbe tact is
made known that she diet m suk'nle.
Her death occurred about two week
since, oa Jacksou street, near tbe corner
of Annunciation, where sb bad resided
lor over a year past.
It will be remembered that about two
year since ate quit tbe stage and retired
to private life. She bad become euamor
rd of a geuilemtu in this city, and for
bis sake abandoned whatever ol lame and
prospect of advancement she bad in ber
profession. Bbe occasionally appeared
on tbe street, alwaj - radiaat, always
beautiful, and whenever she came into
the theatres or public place of amuse

She enjoyed this public manifestation of
admiration, and sustained it regally. Had
she never been a famous singer, Garcia
Would still have been admired for ber
But it began to be whispered about that
her life was uot happy. Society bad its
observances that could not be neglected
aud the poor singer, with all her beauty,
could not retain an allegiance which so
ciety demanded to be broken.
The conviction came upon her slowly,
but it came al last. To one of her pas
sionate uatuie there was nothing left her
but to die. It would be wrong, if it were
Iiossible to lift the veil from those last
iour of ber life. Convinced that the
happiness she had bartered so much
to secure was slipping from ber grasp,
anl the cheerless future spreading
dark before ber, she resorted to that Le
thean cup, the poison of tbe suicide, in
which to drown the senses ot her misery
aud the joj lesa life of a deserted and
It ia said that the morning (some two
weeks a"We) the final separation 'took
place when her friend said good-bye for
the last time Garcia ordered her servant
to go to the drug store and fetch her some
laudanum. The servant, suspecting her
desigttj refused to go. 1 he command,
repeated still more imperatively, was dis
regarded, and tbe servant with tears and
entreaties besought her to refrain from
her wicked intentions.
It had no effect, however, and she went
herself for the poison. On what pretext
ahc obtained it is not known ; but she
did get it, and having taken it, died from
The residents in the neighborhood say
that about the time the poison must have
commenced its fatal work she went and
seated herself at the piano, and for more
than an hour played and sang. Jlerrich,
thrilling voice, rising to its lull compass,
reveled in the sweetest music they had
ever heard. Straiusof passionate sorrow
mingled with the sorrowful cadenco era
funeral dirge as the dying caiitatncc sung
her life away.
Amelia Garcia was about twenty-three
years of age, and a native of the West
Indies. Her father. was a Spanish Cre
ole, and her root her a Jewess, a native of
Germany. Her parents came to a. lork
when she was quite young, and she com
menced her professional career in that
city. She sang one season at the Acad
emy of Music iu this city, and one or two
etigagaiuejato.ajijaib, ih eatres, ,he left
the stage, however, in. I860, and Las not
since appeared, professionally in public.
Such, in brief, was the career of one of
the sweetest singers and most beautiful
women of the age. Whether ber life was
good or evil it behooves us not now to say.
If she was reckjess, frivolous, and gay,
she had, at least, a passionate and loving
nature, and died a suicide.

An Absurd Custom. Shortly after tha

tlemeu were beginning to feel at borne ia
London, Lord Harewood gave a dinner
party 'x which were invited a number of
courtiers and officers, both civil and mili
tary. After the bottle bad circulated S
few times, Gen. 8 , an English troop-
er and reckless bon rivant, arose and (aid:
Gentlemen, when I am in my cupa and
the generous wine begins to warm my
blood, I have an absurd custom of railing
sgainst the Scotch. Knowing my weak
ncft, I hope no gentleman in the compa
ny will take it amiss." Ha sat down, and
a Highland chief, Sir Robert Bleakie, of
Blair Atholl, pit aenting a front like an old
battle-worn tower, quietly arose and re
marked : " Gentlemen, when I am in mj

cups, ana tne ge.ierous wine oegius to
warm my blood, if I hear a man rail
against the Scotch I have an absurd cus
torn of kicking hm at once out of the
company. Knowing my weaknen I hope
no gentleman will take it amiss." It may
be needless to add that Gen. S did
not on that occasion suffer himclf to fol
low bis unusual custom.
