WHAT is HEADACHE? 18 nine cases
out of ten the source of headache is not in the
brain, but in the stomach. Indigestion is the
most frequent cause. The digestive organs
being disordered, they derange the action of
the liver, the bowels, the kidneys, and the
nerves, and the whole secretive and excretive
machinery being as it were thrown out of gear
the brain suffers. Restore the natural tone of
the stomach and bowels with a few doses of
Tarrant's Seltzer Aperient, and headache aris
ing from this cause is at once arrested. This
deTightful preparation is the best remedy for
chronic and periodical headache at present;
known, and is absolutely invaluable as & atom
achic and gentle cathartic.

MILLIONS Bear Testimony to their
WtaHerful Curative Effects.
They are not a vile Fancy Drink, made of Poor
Rum, Whiskey, Proof Spirits anil Refuse Li*
uuors doctored, spiced and sweetened to please the taste,
called “ Tonics,” “Appetizers,” “Restorers,” &c., that
lead the tippler onto drunkenness andruin, but are atrue
Medicine,made from the Native Roots and Horbs'of Cali
fornia, free from all Alcoholic Stimulants.
They are the GREAT BLOOD PURIFIER aud
A LIFE GIVING PRINCIPLE, a perfect Reno
vator and Invigorator «of the System, carrying off all
poisonous matter and restoring the blood to a healthy con
dition. No person .can take these Bitters according .to
directions and remain long unwell,provided their bones
are; not destroyed by mineral poison or other means,
and the vital organs wasted beyond the point of repair.
They are n Gentle Purgative as well ns a
Tonic, possessing, also, the peculiar merit of acting as
a powerful agent in relieving Congestion or Inflammation
of the Liver, and all the Visceral Organs.
FOR FEMALE COMPLAINTS, in yonng or
old, married or single, at the dawn of womanhood or at
the turn of life, these Tonic Bitters have no equal.
For Inflammatory nud Chronic KUeunia-
tism and Gout, Dyspepsia or Indigestion, Bil
ious, Remittent ami Intermittent IFcvers,
Diseases of the Blocil, Liver, Kidneys and
Bladder, these Bitters have been most successful,

in the Mouth, Bilious Attacks. Palpitation of tho Heart,
Inflammation of the Lungs, Pain in the regions of the
Kidneys, and a hundred other painful symptoms, are the
offsprings of Dyspepsia.
They invigorate the Stomach and stimulate the torpid
Liver and Bowels, which render them of unequalled effi
cacy in cleansing the blood of all impurities, and impart
ing new life and vigor to the whole system.
FOR SKIN DISEASES, Eruptions. Tetter, Sab
Rheum, Blotches, Spots, Pimples, Pustules, Boils, Car
buncles, King-Worms, Scald Head, Sore Eyes, Erysipelas,
Itch,Scurfs, Discolorations of tho Skin, Humors and Dis
eases of the Skin, of whatever name or nature, are literally
dug up aud carried out of the system in a short time b.y
the use of these Bitters. One bottle in such cases will
convince; the most incredulous of their curative effects.
Cleause the Vitiated Blood whenever you find its im
purities bursting through the “kin in Fimplos, Erup
tions or Sores; cleanse it when you find it obstructed and
sluggish in the veins; cleanse it when it is foul, and
your feelings will tell you when. Keep the blood pure,
and the health of the system will follow.
Piu, Tape, anil other Worms, lurking In the
system of so many thousands, are effectually destroyed
and removed. Says a distinguished physiologist, there
is scarcely an individual upon the face of the earth
whose body is exempt from the presence of worms. It
is not upon the healthy elements of the body that
worms exist, but upon the diseased humors and slimy
deposits that breed these living monsters of disease. No
Bystem of Medicine, no vermifuges, no anthelmintics,
will free the system from worms like these Bitters.

Slowly they proceeded, with de
jected countenances, not exchanging
a word until the one whom we shall
call Smith, halted before a neat lit
tle house and unlatched the gale.—
Then there was such a look of utter
misery and despair gleaming from
his eyes, that his companion mur
mured, “We must trust in God,
Yes,” he articulated gloomily,
and going to the cradle took tip tlie
six weeks’ old baby, and sorrowful
ly pressed it to bis heart.
1 do wish you would put that
child dowy and gel ready for sup
per,” exclaimed his wife, after en
during his gloominess for some time.
He slowly obeyed, anil then seat
ed himself at the table with a sigh.
What in the world is the matter
with you to-night?” she asked, as
he sat down opposite him.
His voice trembled as lie replied,
I suppose you might as well know
first as last. I have been discharg
“There!” exclaimed his wife
quickly, pushing back her chair ;
“just what I might have expected !
I’d like to know what we are going
to do now. Winter coming on and
all. I declare, Smith, you will tor
ture me to death.”
“Sorry ! No, you are not sorry at
all. You would just as lief see your?
wife anti children starve as not. It’s
nothing in the world but your poor
“Lydia, you are cruel. Instead
ol helping me to endure my great
trouble, which is bearing me down
to the very earth, you make it ten
times harder for me to bear. 1 was
not tbe only one discharged. There
was Jim Hawley and ever so many
others. Business is dull.”
“Businessis dull 1” she mimicked
after him. “Always an excuse for
a worthless man. To think that you
should be discharged now, just as
our rent is due ; aud then we are
out of wood ; and iobk*wtrMny shoes,
won’t you f rity feet almost on the
ground. I wish I had never mar
ried J’ou,” and a dark look accom
panied the last words. The poor
husband now covered his face with
his hands and groaned aloud. This
seemed to encourage his wife to go
on ; for she uttered words more and
more Litter, until at last, driven al
most to a state of freenzy, the
wretched man rushed from the house
to the tavern, and there sought to
bury the thoughts of the past and fu
ture in the rum cup.
In the meantime James Hawley,
his companion in labor, entered his
home with a very sad countenance.
But before he had stepped over the
threshhold a loving pair of arms were
thrown around his neck and a pair
of sweet lips were pressed to his.—
He returned the salutation sadly,
and then enquired for the baby.
“She is sleeping sweetly in her
cradle. She has been a perfect lit
tle darling all day. Supper is wait
ing, so make haste. Here is warm
water and a towel. Are you not
later than usual to-night f”
“Yes, Mary ; I bring bad news to
“Bad news!” she exclaimed, turn
ing pale as, for the first time, she no
ticed that something was wrong.
“Yes, I was discharged to-night,
and I do not know as I can get any
thing to do before spring. Business
is so dull.
“Is that all ?” asked his wife, with
a sigh of relief. I thought it was
something terrible enough ? What
will become of us this winter, if I am
out of employment ?”
“The same God who feeds the
sparrow and clothes the lilies in the
field, will not let us suffer, dear
“God bless you, dear Mary.—
There is sweet comfort in your
“And now let us have supper,”
sxclaimed his, wife, cheerfully.—
“See, I have your favorite dish—
shortcake and toast. Do not let
your troubles impair your appetite,
and then, after tea, will talk it over.
God doeth everything for the best.
And as our day, soshall our strength
In the evening it was determined
that the quarter's rent should be
paid immediately, a new supply of
coal obtained, and the remaining
portion of tlie money placed in the
wife’s hands to be dealt out as spar
ingly as possible.
Then Mary suggested that all her
pretty parlor furniture should be
put away in the garret, and the
front room let out. Further than
this they could lay no plans, and as
the husband went out to pay the
rent, the future looked so datk to j selves the credit system formerly at-
the young wife that she could not tained pioportions which it never
altogether restrain her tears; hut could have done with people less
seeking strength Irom on high, her scrupulous concerning their pecuni
face wore the same ch*-eitul smile ; ary obligations,
when her husban d return* d, and lit- j They are an honest people. Such
tie did he know that during all that a thing as the stealing of public mon
night long, while he and his haby j rys through political party machina
were soundly sleeping, his wife lay lions was an unknown thing in any
awake planning out the future.
Three months have passed with
out a day’s work all that time, and
now another quarter's rent is due.
In vain ihe laborer thrusts his hands
into his empty pockets, and in vain
racks his brains for some solution of
l/ie problem bow the rent is to be
paid. The lodger bad paid his
money monthly, but then ihrt was
not enough to meet the sum, if he
of the Southern Slate Governments

the standard of mercantile honors
was so high in most of the Southern
cities that a man’s word was as good

had it, and of course his wife had ! since the changer! condition of affairs
spent that as fast as she had receiv
ed it, and it was an everyday won
der to James how Mary managed so
With feelings of deep despair he
entered the house. The table was
spread with the same favorite dish
There was the shortcake and toast
flanked with a golden lump of but
ter, a plate ot honey, and a deep
dish of roasted apples to be served
with sugar and cream, while at his
wife’s plate sal the. steaming tea pot
As James look it in, all at one glance
he greatly wondered at the frugal
yet comfortable way of living. How
his wife had been able to make the
small amount ol money last so long
was a mystery to him and yet he
could not help wishing inwardly
that she hud been more economical
then, perhaps, the rent might have
been paid, and he fell that it would
be better to have subsisted on one
crust of bread rather than be turned
out doors homeless.
He refused to sit at the table plead
ingthat he had no appetite. And i
large tear arose in the strong man’s
eyes as he informed his wife that on
the morrow ihey would be turned
Irom their home, to go he knew not
where, as he had not a dollar in his
pocket to secure them a room else
“Is that it ? ” exclaimed his wife
in a soft lone, and trijfped up stairs
and soon returned and placed two
len-dollar bills in his hand.
“Where did you get them ?” he
asked eagerly, turning them over on
his* v tiands as though to ascertain
whether they were really genuine
“I earned them,” replied his wife,
gaily. “I knit afghans, shawls, chil
dren’s hoods, sacques and socks; at
first only for those whom I provi
dentially heard wished articles of
the kind, and afterwards was em
ployed to furnish a trimming estab
lishment with my work.”
“And kept it a secret from me?”
“Y'es, because 1 thought you would
be worried for fear i was doing too
much. I love to knit dearly, and
consider it more of pleasant pastime
“God be praised for giving me
such a wife 1” exclaimed her hus
band earnestly; and pressing his
wife and child closely to his bosom,
said : “Her children rise up and call
her blessed ; her husband also ; for
many daughters have done virtuous
ly, but thou excellest them all.”
Twenty years have passed, and
James Hawley is a rich man. But
Joseph Smith is a confirmed drunk
ard, while his wife has long since
passed from earth, a victim of mise
ry and want.
Why will not wives aseist their
husbands to bear their trials with
helping hands and hearts? If they
wouid but do so, how many families
would be saved from ruin, and how
sweet would be their reward, not
only upon earth but in heaven.
From Tho South.
We gave some reasons last week
why the Southern people possessed
a more unified and harmonious char
acter than those of other sections of
our country, but we did not particu
larize these characteristics, intend
ing to return again to the subject.
They are a generous people. Liv
ing in a country where nature yields
her gifts with a bounteous hand,
growing rich from the prolific pro
ducts of the land, havingan abun
dance, the Southerners’ home has
always been synonymous with hos
pitality’, and their large-hearted anti
generous disposition furnished an
ever ready means of their identifica
tion w herever they travelled. There
is nothing little or mean in theircom-
They are an honorable people.—
Among business men the credit of
Southern merchants has always
ranked first, and even under the
terrible wreck of fortunes brought
about by the war, that credit has
been maintained with wonderful
steadfastness. It is a very rare
Hiing for a Southern merchant—
“one to the manner born,” to
seek to defraud his creditors. In
lh?ir transactions amongst them-
in ll.e South that it has been thought
necessary to provide more than the
most ordinaty precautions against
the visits ol burglars or thieves. We
have left our doors wide open or un
locked for months at a time in one of
the print ipal Southern cities, without
having the least apprehenson of a
visit from a line!. We could not
recommend the same course there
Even during the war, W’hen the
temptations to dishonest practices
w r ere so great, very few instances
occurred ot peculations or defalca
tions amongst the public officials of
the Confederate Government. The
demoralization whieh-swept over our
entire country, as a result of the late
civil war, touched more lightly the
South than it did other sections.
They are a cultivated people.
We are aware that this declaration
may not meet with as ready an as
sent as the previous ones; but we
know whereof we affirm, and w'e
mean it to its fullest legitimate con
clusions. We have enjoyed oppor
tunities of comparing the intellectu
al, moral and social culture of the
Southern people with that of ether
sections, and, as a Southerner, are
entirely satisfied with the result.
There is a degree of true refinement
ol manners, based upon and grow
ing up from a proper educational,
social aud religious system of train
ing, for which all the" best charac
teristics ol her people are favorable,
to be found amongst the Southern
people alone ol all the people of this
country. In no other section will
be found better educated men and
women, in the true sense of the term,
better schools and colleges for this
purpose, better read people, more
earnest and thoughtful men, more
polished and refined women, more
eloquent and effective public speak
ers, more conscientious and devoted
Christians, than in the South.
Our readers may think it immod
est to speak thus in praise of our
selves, but really it has been com
mon so long to hear every one speak
ill of the South, to think and say that
no good was in her, that her people
were heathens, or uncivilized des
peradoes, and to talk of the superi
ority of other portions of the coun
try, that we are determined to re
main silent no longer; but shall, so
far as we have the means to do so,
spread abroad the truth about the
noblest people and the most magnifi
cent country that the world con
tains, and if our word reaches homes
where there may be aspirations for
’ife amongst such a people, and in j continue to burn without being re-
such a country, we can in all ear- plenished with oil.
