In Russia a child ten years of age cannot go away from home to school without a passport. Nor can common servants and peasants go away from where they live without one. A gentleman residing in Moscow or St. Petersburg cannot receive the visit of a friend who remains many hours without notifying the police. The porters of all houses are compelled to make returns of the arrival and departure of strangers ; and for every one of the above passports a charge is made of some kind. A Boston journalist has just made rome good points in the following language: “ For the Press there are five ideals: Tell the truth ; boil it down : light it up ; play fair ; lend a hand.” Jones : “Brown is very careful about his children, isn’t he?” Jenkins: “Yes; he’s trying to bring them up in the way he should have gone.” My cough was bad, my cough was painful; I had no sleep; my state was dreadful. At last I tried Conquest’s Cough Cordial, Wfiich quickly oqred me, and I’m now a marvel. ■ —[A. dtt. 1
