Too Much to Expect, — A contemporary thus apologises for its shortcomings : —“ If our paper isn’t as good as usual this week, excuse us. Too much reunion, and you can’t expect the editor and the paper both to be full at the same time. “No,” said the vagrant, with a sigh, “ times are getting better; they’re not what they used to be. A man’s offered more work than witals.” “Haven’t you signs amongst you so that you know whore to°go, and how you will be treated, and all that sort of thing i” Well, we each have signs of our own. If I see a big powerful bull-dog hanging around the front door, 1 take that as a sign meaning ‘ move on. ’ If there are a few stout men in the next field to the house, that means too much gristle and too little meat. If a large pile of firewood stands by a house with a bucksaw reclining against it, that’s a sign for ‘ saw’s-edge. ’ Oh, yes, we have lots of signs—good reliable signs, too.”

Holloway’s Pills.— At the change of seasons many persons feci oppressed without knowing why they are so—they are aware something within them is wrong, though they cannot delect the defected organ. A few doses of these powerfully purifying and eminently cooling Tills will restore regularity to every part of the system —will cast out all impurities lurking in the frame, and will throroughly expel the last traces of disorder, however obscure its cause. With Holloway’s medicine belief is insured without risk : erroneous action is rectified without disturbing natural regularity, health is re-mstated, and with it return the cheerful feelings which .unmistakably tell the invalid that all within is right again.
