We wefe recently shown a
walnut tree on the premises of
Mr. J. T. Cheatham, that has the
remarkable habit of bearing a
crop of nuts on one side one
year, and on the opposite side

duced a lull crop every other
year. Some years ago, however,
it was injured by a heavy sleet,
and since that time the limbs
growing on the northern Iside of
the tree bear nuta one year, and
the next year the limbs on the

This is the only recuperation
of bruin forces, because du
ring sleep the brain is in a
state of rest, in a condition to
receive and appropriate par
ticles of nutriment from the
blood, which take the place
ot those which have been
consumed in previous labor
since the very act of thinking
consumes or burns up solid
particles, as every turn of the
wheel or screw of the steamer
is the result of consumption
of the fuel in the furnace.
The supply of consumed
brain substance can only be
had from the nutritive par
ticles in the blood, which
were obtained from the food
eaten previously; and the
brain is so constituted that
it can but receive and appro
priate to itself those nutritive
particles during a state of rest,
of quiet, and stillness of sleep.
Mere stimulants supply noth-*
ing in themselves. They
goad the brain and force it to
a greater consumption of its
substance, until that sub
stance has been so exhausted
that there is not power enough
left to receive a supply, just
as men are sometimes so near
death by thirst and starvation
that there is not power
enough left to swallow any
thing, and all is over.
THE COUNTRY CAN GO ON.

Case of Br.B. J. Weistling, Middleton, Pa., stated hy himself:
“Experience in its use in Stone of tho Bliidder in my own 'iier-ion enablc.s me
to attest the wonderful efficiency of the Buffiilo Lithia Water in tiiis Dainfiil

(l .am now seventy-seven years and six montiis of age) and in my fe,eble •'■oneral
health, a surgical operation was not to be thought of, and the water se!ems to
have accomplished all that such an operation, if successfnl, could h.ave done.

“For four years I was afflicted with Riieiimatie Gout to an extent wliielnn-
capaeitated me entirely for the discharge of the duties of my profession, and
