BILE BEANS! V.’lict n funny name
for a medicine! Nevertheless it is very
siL'niiicant as applied to tho article. ■
Hile, according to W ebster, is “a y< 1-

secreted by the Hver.” Whenever the I
liver does n< t act properly this fluid is i
retained in the blood and poisons the |
whole system, and sallownessaiKt misery i
is the result. SMITH’S BILE BEANS
is a sin e cure for biliousness and liver I
complaint. Price, 25 cents per bottle.
Gratuitous advice generally avails
nothing, however, we will venture:
keep your premises free of all kinds
of filth and rubbish and use lime and
carbolic acid freely.

Rev. Sain Jones says when he gors

don’t lie down to study and ponder
over the past ills of life, nor give way

Jones, but when a man’s crop is en

if he can go to bed and sleep without

The commencement season has
opened in earnest, as we have already
had several, and several more are yet
to come. Comparing the last three,
namely St. Patricks, Sacred Heart
and Tubman High School which
were, held last week, I would say, St
Patricks for wit, Sacred Heart for
Music and Tubman High School for
talent. The Tubman High School
had the largest crowd that lias ever !
been in the Opera House, competent
judges estimating the crowd at
fifteen hundred, but I think seventeen
hundred would come nearer the
mark. The recitation of Miss Minnie I
Miller was pronounced by all to be
one of the finest efforts of the season. I
The singing of Miss Tillie O’Brien, of
the Sacred Heart Academy, was gran 1
and her voice is worth a fortune to
her. She has rich full soprana voice.
The valedictory delivered by Mr. P.
J. Hughes, of the St. Patricks, was the
finest undoubtedly that has been
delivered here this year. He will
yet make his mark. He has a brilliant
future before him.
The Houghton Institute Com- I
rneficernent wih be held at the Opera !
House July 6th. It will draw a
crowd as large as that at the Tubman .
exhibition. A play written by the
Principal of the School, Prof. Sliecut,
entitled “Seaside Mystery,” will be
