Occupational Ailments. Fresh pure air is a vitalizing elixir. Whoever is debarred by circustances from unrestricted ac- cess to this invisible, but powerful stimulant, needs a midicinal invigorant of some kind. The great object should be to choose the best. Popu- larity is a pretty good guarantee of merit in this scrutinizing and intelligent age, and tried by this criterion Hostetter's Stomach Bitters stands first among the invigorating and regulating medicines of the present day. To the wants ot persons en- gaged in indoor employments, especially in crowd- ed factories where even with the best possible ven- tilation the atmosphere is always in some degree polluted, this salubrious vegetable tonic is pecu- liarly adapted. The nature of the ingredients is no mystery. It consists of an absolutely pure diffusive stimulant,tinctured—or rather surcharged —with the fluid extracts of sanatous roots and barks and herbs. The pharmacopoeia has its tinc- tures, but what arc they? The juice of ...

DB. JOHN BULL'S Great Bemedies. DR. JOHN BILL, Manufacturer and Vender of the Celebrated SMITH'S TONIC SYRUP, for the cure of ague and FEVER OR chills and fever. THE proprietor of this celebrated medicine justly claims lor it a superiority ovei all remedies ever offered to the public for the safe, certain and permanent cure of Ague and Fever, or Chills and Fever, whether of short or long standing. He re- fers to the entire Western and Southern country to bear him testimony to the truth of the asser- tion, that in no case whatever will it fail to cure, if the directions are followed and carried out.— In a great many cases a single dose has been suf- ficient for a cure, and whole families have been cured by a single bottle, with a perfect restora- tion of the general health. It is however prudent and in every case more certain to cure, if its nse is continued in smaller doses for a week or two after the disease has been checked, more especial- ly in difficult and long standing cases. ...

m W. K. FOSTER, Editor. College Building. Sealed Proposals for the wood work of the Georgetown College Building h$ve been printed at this office and circulated. The Proposals will also be found in this paper and we hope they will receive the immediate attention of contractors. The ground has been broken on the College site and excavations for the foundation nearly completed. Teams and querrymen are busy delivering the stone, and by De- cember the walls will be finished according to contract, when the wood work is to be completed as rapidly as possible. Two thousand dollars (per ct. on shares) has been paid in and the next levy will greatly swell that amount. There are many of our substantial county-men who will receive the benefits of the enterprise, whio have not contributed as yet, and they owe it as a duty to themselves and their more prompt and liberal neighbors to take stock according to their means. The ad- vancement of Georgetown effects the property of the entire county, and...

Babies. Upon the above subject we clip the " beatingest" article we ever read : We love babies, and everybody who does love babies. No man has music in his soul who don't love babies. Babies were made to be loved, es- pecially girls when they grow up. A man isn't worth a shuck who hasn't a baby, and the same rule ap- plies to women. A baby is a spring day in winter ; a hot-liouse rose in mid-winter; a ray of sunshine in frigid winter; and if it is healthy, and good natured and you're sure it's yours, it is a bushel of sunshine, no matter how cold the weather. A man cannot be a helpless case so long as he loves babies—one at a time. We love babies all over, no matter how dirty they are. Babies were born to be dirty. We love babies because they are babies, and because their mothers were lovable and lovely women. Our love for babies is onlv bound- ed by the number of babies in the world. We always look for babies, we do, with anxiety and paternal affection, we do. We always have sorrow...
