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 felt under the 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 donev 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 com
plains of a prickly sensation of the
skin ; his spirits are low ; and although
' he is satisfied that exercise would be
beneficial to him, yet he can scarcely
. summon up fortitude enough to try it.
In fact,-he distrusts-Mevery remedy.

It has often been said that the dan
gers of travel tyrailroad are not near
so great as those of travel by stage
coach, and indeed of walking the pub
lic streets. The statistics furnished by
Mr. Ghas; Francis Adams, Jr., the well
kapwn railroad expert, go still further
than this, and seem to bear out the par
adoxical speecfi ascribed to Jno. Bright,
to the ..effect, that., the safest place in
which a man could put himself was in
side a firstclass railway carriage of a
train in full motion. During the years
lSTO-S the whole1 number of lives lost
iai -operating the entire railroad system
of Massachusetts .was 1,165, or an aver
'age of 146 per year, white in Boston the
recorded deaths from accidental causes
from 1868 to 1878 were 2,587, or an an
nual average of 259. Thus there are 80
percent, more deaths in Boston from
accidents, than there are on all the rail
roads of frife State The records of trav
eLand of casualties in France show the
same state of facts. Moreover, there is
but a small uroDortion of nasseneers
PnTfecTin the. totalof such accidents. A
large numefaDfc-iualties affect mil
road employes, who- are necessarily ex
posed to -wererj dangprain the line
01 their employment, the constant en
counter with peril rendering many of
the?n foolhardy and reckless.: But Mr.
Adams i shows . that- the. greatest and
most , regular; cause of accidents and
deaths jn'lbQ Operations of railroads is
the, habit bf walking on. the trackwhich
is indulged in, by, a great many people,
and especially by drunken people. Over
one-third of all the railroad casualties
reported in Massachusetts are covered
by the class of accidents to trespassers
that is, accidents to men, Women and
children illegally walking, lying or
playing on the tracks or riding on the
cars. The Pennsylvania Railroad has
lately adopted the system of broken
stone ballast to cover the entire road
bed, which, by its sharp and uneven
surface, causes tramps too much dis
comfort to encourage them to persist
in track-walking. This plan is recom
mended by Mr. Adams as the best pos
sible one for preventing this dangerous
practice, at one and the same time giv
ing railroads the very best of road-beds,
and materially lessening the percent
age of accidental deaths and injuries.
It is good policy for railroads do to all
they can to reduce such casualties to a
minimum, for the sake even more of
the moral effect upon communities
than of the mere saving of money, and
in this view of the case it would be well
for both railroad managers and legisla
tors to examine the railroad laws of
England and compare them with those
prevailing in this country. In England
all grade crossings are prohibited by
law. No railroad can cross another up
on the common level, for the reason that
the law in that country regards rail
roads as private property, and such a
crossing would be trespass. On the
same sensible theory to walk along a
railroad track is an act of trespass, and
every one who does so is duly notified
by conspicuous sign boards that he is
an offender and is liable to be arrested
and tried for the misdemeanor. This
stringent policy is, of course, made
more necessary in that country than it
has so far been in this, in consequence
of the greater density of the population,
but it is certainly expedient for our
railroads near the large cities to imitate
it as closely as possible. Grade cross
ings create an element of danger which,
as has been well said by a leading rail
road authority, "gains in magnitude
with every increase of traffic and of the
speed of trains, and eventually the de
struction of life and property becomes
inevitable." Trespassing on tracks is
quite as dangerous, and quite as neces
sary to-pre vent by appropriate legisla
tion. As the authority already quoted
"Many people think they have as good
a right to make a foot-path of a perma
nent way as to walk on the common
roads, and suits have repeatedly been
brought by such trespassers to recover
damages for injuries they received from
moving trains. If the English idea
generally prevailed it would greatly re
duce the number of men who are maim
ed or killed by the railway operations
of this country."

John Greenleaf Whittier, the most child
hearted as he is among the foremost of
American authors, writes of St. Nich
olas : "It is little to say of this maga
zine that it is the best child's periodical in
the world." Prof. Proctor, the astronomer
wrote from London: "What a wonder
ful magazine it is for young folks, and
ours are quite as much delighted with
it as American children can be!" That
it is calculated to delight the little folk
everywhere is indicated by the fact that
it is to be issued in French by Dela
grave of Paris and that even the far
away little Moslems are now to have a
volume made up of translations from
8t Nicholas into Arabic by Rev. H. H.
