Widows and Widowers.
From the New York Sun.
There are over 800,000 more widows
than widowers in England. In France
for every 100 widowers there are 194
These facts lead the Westminister
Review to treat the growing disposi
tion of men to marry late in life as a
very serious evil of modern society.
Such men usually marry younger
women, who, in the natural order of
things, may he expected to survive
them. Even where widowers enter
again into matrimony, they do not
often take for wives women of a cor
responding or ail approximately cor
responding age, hut young maidens,
who are likely to be left widows.
Tho greater longevity of women lues
induced some philosophers to advise
that, on the contrary, the wife should
be older than the husband, and there
have t heeu some notable marriages
where that was the case. The Baron-
ess Buidectc-Coutts and Madame do
StacC for instance, were much older
thnn .thc men they married. . But the
law of nature commonly stauds in
opposition to such unions, lliough it
cannot he denied that the woman
with whom a lad first falls iu love is
very apt to he much his senior. lie
would marry her if she would have
him for a husband, hut sho looks on
hint as a more boy, and usually refuses
to take his lovo seriously. The natu
ral tendency of women to marry older
men seems to be as strong ns it is for
men to marry younger women, else
the amorous lads would receive an
amount of encouragement which
might put the average superiority in
ages on the side of the brides.
Nature, therefore, arranges all that
in a way from which it cannot he
diverted by any review article. Wc
agree, however, that it is best for the
man and for the race that lie should
marry early if lie is to marry at nil.
Any great disparity of age between
husband and wife is a misfortune. It
is better for them to grow old together,
so that in tho usual course of nature
the man and the woman will reacli
tho end without any great difference
in time between them.

A CAREFUL TRAINING. .
As a rule the druggists of the country arc
the most careful people. They do everything
with exactness and never fail to mako a full
confession before expressing an opinion. A
prominent druggist writes:
Gentlemen—Please ship by freight another
c«oO of your incomparable Calisayiv Tonic. It
is the only preparation of the kind I have
seen that fully bears out the promises made
by the seller. We guarantee it.
Very truly yours, II. C. Edmunds.
Druggist and Physician.
“Oh, my back!” is a common exclamation,
at:d expresses a world of misery and suffer
ing. It is singular this pain arises from such
various causes. Kidney disease, liver com
plaint, wnstinD affections, colds, rheumatism,
dyspepsia, overwork and nervous debility are
chief causes. When thus ailing seek prompt
relief. It can be found best in Brown’s Iron
Bitters. It builds up from the foundation by
making the blood rich and pure. Leading
physicians and ministers use and recommend
it.* It lias cured many, and if you are suffer
