A sermon can be too short. It should be long enough for the women to take mental notes of all. the new styles out.— New Haven Register. This is Congressman Horr’s little ditty on Sunset Cox : Beneath this slab lies the great Sam Cox, Who was wise as an owl and brave as an ox ; Think it not strange his turning to dust, For he swelled and he swelled till he finally “bust.” Just where he has gone, or just how he fares, Nobody knows and nobody cares ; But wherever he is, be he angel or elf, Be sure, dear reader, he’s puffing himseif. Holloway’s Pills.—Mind and body are so closely enlertwined that for the former to be vigorous the latter must be healthful. The first step towards the maintenance of health is to secure perfect digestion, which is readily obtained by this nbted medicine, the most competent cftectually to rcstrahi every adverse Influence which can mar, impair, or vexatiously modify this all-important process.. The student, merchant, man of pleasure, and humblest labourer may each in turn derive vigour, ease, and strength from occasional doses, or a longer course of Holloway’s purifying Pills. However waved g the mind, orunstrung the nerves this fine medicine will trade the derangement to its sourse, where it: will overthrow it and established order and purity in its lace —Advt.
