Symptoms of a Diseased Liver.
PAIN 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 feltrunderjhe shoulder blade, and
it frequently extends to the top of the
shoulder, and is sometimes mistaken
for rheumatism in the arm. The stom
ach is affected with loss of appetite
and sickness; the bowels in general
are costive, sometimes alternative with
lax ; the head is troubled with pain,
accompanied with a dull, heavy sen
sation in the back part. There is gen
erally a considerable loss of memory,
accompanied with a painful sensation
of having left undone something which
ought to. have been done.. A slight,
dry cough is sometimes an attendant.
The patient complains of weariness
v, and debility; he is easily startled, his
i"'eet are cold r burning, and he com
plains of a prickly sensation of the
skin ; his spirits are low ; and although
he Is'satisned that exercise would be
.beneficial to him, yet he can scarcely
summon up fortitude enough to try it.
In fact, he distrusts every -remedy.

that county. Now he is plunged in the
depths of despair. A local paper pub

event, giving the names of the parties
to the proposed match. This struck
the eyes of the damsel's father, who re
solved to let the affair go no further.
His way of preventing it had certainly
the merit of novelty. " He waited until
a few hours before the time announced
for the celebration of the ceremony, ap
parently being delighted thereat; and
then hid the clothes of the bride. Of
course she couldn't or wouldn't be mar

match, but an indefinite postponement.
