SYMPTOMS OF A DISEASED LIVER
Pain in the right side, under the edge of the ribs,
Increases on pressure; 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
blade, and It frequently extends to the top of th
shoulder, and is sometimes mistaken for rheuma
tism in the arm. The stomach is affecred with
loss of appetite and sickness; the bowels in gener
al are costive, sometimes alternative with lax; the
head is troubled with pain, accompanied with a
dull, fleayy sensation in the back part. There Is
generally a, considerable toss ot memory, accom
panied with a painful sensation of having left nnr
done something 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 sensation of the skin; his
spirits are low; and although he is satisfied that ex
ercise wpuld be beneficial to him, yet he can scarce
ly summon up fortitude enough to try It In ' fact
he distrusts every remedy. Several pf the above
symptoms attend the disease, but cases feaveoct
curred where few f them existed, yet examination
of the body, after death, has shown the Liver to

In looking back over the business of the year
now just ending, I feel very thankful to my many
friends and the public generally, for the liberal
support they have given me In my efforts to supply
the wants our city with a FIRST-CLASS Grocery,
where anything In the grocery Une can be found,
and I flatter myself that I have tilled the want to
the entire satisfaction of my numerous patrons.
In the future, as in the past, I propose to keep a
strictly first-class stock of
FANCY AND HEAVY GROCERIES,
and assure the public that no effort of mine shall
be spared to please, and I sha'l always keep on
hand the best and most complete stock that the
demands of my customers may require, and now
call attention to the fact that I have the agency
here for the celebrated
BRIDGEWATER FAMILY FLOUR,
the best In America, as attested by the fact of Its
having received the first silver medal at Parts. I
have also just received 25 barrels of STONEWALL
Family Flour, and 20 barrels of Baltimore Family
Flour, both of which are very good flours equal to
any sold in this market, except Brldgewater.
Also something very nice in the way of Family
Cheese, Pickled Pigs' Tongue and many other
novelties. Very Respectfully,
I beg leave to return my sincere thanks to my
many friends who bestowed their patronage on me
in my new quarters with Mr. Davidson, and promis

in the future I solicit a continuance of the same.
