"Of all things, a night journey is the most tedious," said Clarence Hatfield as he let himself fall heavily i ito the still'and uncomfortable seat of the railway car, with its faded velvet cushions, and its back at exactly the wrong angle for approaching the luxury of a nap. "I say, Clifton, do you think we might smoke?" "Well, I rather imagine not," said I, with a motion of my head toward the other passengers. There appear to be ladies on board." Hatfield shrugged his shoulders. "Such ladies!" "Well," laughed I, "tliey don't appear to be particularly stylish iu manner or costume, but nevertheless, my dear fellow, the divinity of their sex hedges them around like a wall." "Divinity of their humbug," shortly interrupted Hatfield. "As if these ill-dressed dowdies, with babies and bandboxes, could possibly beloi|g to the same world with Beatrice Ha^^'- r€u^^v,--i.i -tmr ao seem^Sxactly appropriate to lug the sacred name of Beatrice Hale into a discussion in a. place like this. Yet what could I do, except to feel my cheeks flush and the roots of my hair tingle. For I was unmistakably in love with Bee Hale, and so wgs Clarence Hatfield. Which of us did she like best? Ah, that „ was a question! It was something like Horse Blankets and Eobes the cliildren^s old game of see-saw: "Up I go, down you come." Sometimes I fancied I had the ghost of a chance; sometimes I was convinced that Hatfield was altogether the preferred, and that I had better emigrate to Australia at once. "Hello!" cried Hatfield, breaking up unceremoniously upon the thread of my musing, "there goes the whistle. We shall get oft' directly.

Clareuce Hatfield and I, be it understood, were employes in the extensive business of Messrs. Jeukius, Jumperton & Co., auctioneers, and had been down in the country "putting up" a sale of swampy lots, cut into 3treets.^md squares according to the most approved metropolitan methods of doing such things. It had been a dismal business. November is noVa very inspiring month at best. and a three days' fog had conspired against the success of "Mount Morra Park," 'as Jenkins, Jumperton & Co. had christened the new speculation. Yet we had done reasonably well, and were now thankful enough to get back to New York. As the train gave its starting lunge, the door flew open, and in came an old. lady, in a prodigious black bonnet and a fur cloak, surrounded by a perfect chevaux de frise of squirrel cages and sandwich boxes. She was followed closely by a younger — lady dressed in black and closely veiled, far outshope me in general society, and . - _ . . . . . • ' A i n . • • . -W-* 1 . 1 1 .12»«/vnA^ MAfltAW THE THOMPSONVILLE PRESS will be for sale at John Hunter's, and by news boys, every Thursday evening.

"Young man," said she in a low voice as gruff as that of a man, "Is this seat engaged ?"v • ' "Yes," said Hatfield; "it Is." •; «'For your feet?" "No matter what for," superciliously replied the head clerk of Jenkins, Jumper-ton & Co. "Please to pass on, old lady; You will find seats enough beyond.'^ But this was a stretching of the truth Much obliged to you, young said she. "It is easy to see that yoi a mother of your own at home, a are in the habit of doing reverence gray hairs. As for this person"—w nod of her poke-bonnet iu the directl Mr. Hatfield—"if he's got a motfj can't say. much for her bringing lyj Perhaps he may be old himself sotiji and stand in need of a little politen consideration from the young." "Wlieu I am anxious for your opinion, ma'am, I'll let you know,1 Hatfield retorted rather flippantly. The old lady could only express h by a vehement sniff. And even I \ little annoyed at his manner. "Hatfield," said I, in a low tone, might behave like a gentleman. , "So I will," he retorted with a s "when I find myself in company tlia! for such measures." I said no more, but leaning up a 'the side of the door, prepared to myself as comfortable as possible,|ijj the train should stop at Stauifor first way-station, aud some desce passengers might make room fo» m Reader, did you ever stand in an cx train in full motion?

If so, you will know ho%g,ti> pity me during the hour and a halfybe-tween B and Stamford. I Hatfield went to sleep and snored; t 'the old lady in the gigantic bonnet ate siand-wiches and drank from a wicker fiask| of excellent smelling sherry; but the yoipg lady sat as noiseless as a statue; fr^fail babies whimpered; old gentlemen uttcfed strange sounds iu their sleep; the lijaits flared like sickly moons overhead,! the shriek of the train as it flew tlirc sleeping villages sounded like the yel a flery-throated demon. 4 "Stamford!" . bawled the conductoi At last it wher^number overtook 'hie in -1 jXra minute and a quarter; for I had b asleep on my legs once or twice, even my former disadvantageous attitude, ai could scarcely believe the evidence of own senses when we finally thunde||d into the echoing vastness of the GraTjd Central depot in New York. , j..' Hatfield alive to the necessity of catcb-ing a car before all the world of travellers' should crowd into it, stumbled over the old lady's ankles with small ceremony. "Oh, take care ! You've knocked the squirrel cage over 1" cried she; : 'Confound the squirrel cage!" shouted Hatfield, gnashing his teetli, as the ancient dame placed liers«lf directly in the aisle to set the furry pet up again, thereby completely blocking up liis egress, 'j ; "Serves you right, Hatfield!" said I, as I stooped to assist Just then the young companion of our lady advanced, flinging back her veil.

As to Mr. Hatfield—the less said about his courtesy the better." And Beatrice Hale's black eyes flashed disdainfully on Clarence's cowed visage. "Miss Hale," he stammered, "if I had had the least idea who you were—" You would have regulated your conduct accordingly," impatiently interrupted Miss Hale. "Thanks—I prefer to see people iu their true iight. Mr. Clifton," turning graciously to me, "you'll call and see how grandma stands her journey, tomorrow, won't you? Oh, thank you I' the carriage is close by.'* And to this day I believe that is the way I won my wife; for Clarence Hatfield was a brilliant showy sort of fellow, who Some say the age of miracles is past, I've no such notion; Thy slender pen, defying storm and blast, ^v Hatti bridged an ocean. .

The liext stage of our journey is to be made by carriage also, and it is ordered for seven A. M. We arelotli to leave this smiling valley, and are up with the first hint of the sunrise aud spend between two and three hours exploring. 117', does not mean all our party, but it always includes a young lady fiimiliarly known to me as Judy—aud myself, who traveled under the affectionate nom-de-plume of Punch. W e had the reputation of being zealous sightseers', and as our capacity for taking in things was unlimited, Ave were left the privilege of exploring and making whatever discoveries we chose, providing that we shared the reports with the other members. The sunlight was just beginning timidly to peek over the snowy tops, and we kept watch of it, until suddenly it seemed to burst full and bright, and filled the whole valley with a great white light. The air was full of sweet odors, the dewdrops glistened on the foliage, and not a sound save the twittering of birds and the roar of the cascades, disturbed this peaceful grandeur for nearly au hour. We wandered through some curious old churchyards, and finding a little footpath that led along the base of the mountain we made the entire circuit of the town before breakfast. Returning we stopped to look into a wind ow of curious carvings and if there wc didn't find our wooden fever frieud, using all the arts of gesticulation of which he was capable to make a bargain with the shopkeeper. Our ride that morning was to be some thirty miles in length, as far as Intcrlakcn, a popular resort for travelers. The roads, the Aveather, and the scenery were all verifications' of yesterday's experience, only the combinations were different, lie-e'ent rains had filled up eVery gorge and chasm, arid Stent cascades and waterfalls IPPSIP^ etsoratiiig,*^fit were, with gossamer laces, the brown old mountain sides. A broad glacier river, with its peculiar gray color, rushed by the side of the road for several miles, seeking an outlet iu Lake Brienz, itself an outlet for the numerous mountain torrents. Another twist in the road brings into view the grand old Wet-terhoru, the Faulliorn, and various other horns, with unpronounceable names. We rode through the town of Brienz where IJie famous cuckoo-clocks are made, and a short delay to change horses enabled us to see the wonderful Falls of Giessbacli, across Lake Brienz. They consist of a series of seven cascades, one directly above the other, and are regarded as the miniature Niagara-of Switzerland. The illumination of them is something wou-derful, but we could not wait to see it. we were in unusually merry .spirits.and nearly split our throats singing songs of Yau-keedom, which caused the astonished peasantry to gaze at us in perfect wonderment, thinking doubtless that we were a hew race of travelers, though I believe any individual, a trifle oft* from the ordinary, is set down at once as an American. If all the peculiarities attributed to us as a nation were true, Barnum would never be obliged to travel in foreign countries in search of specimens. _ . We stopped at a little hamlet for lunch, and each one of us purchased a toy house, perfect little gems of carving, and costing only a couple of francs. ' Our wooden member was again in his element, but was sorry afterward he didn't buy a huge music box in the shape of a Swiss chalet. Our near prospect of reaching Geneva alone prevented him from adding this treasure to his burdens. We reached Interlaken at early noon, and were so charmed with the place that we felt v6ry much like making over our plans and spending a few days instead of a few hours there. It is one of the favorite Swiss summer resorts, and. is romantically situated between two-lakes and fairly belt6d by mountains. The climate is delightful, and attracts many English-and Americans, but loveliest of all is the magnificent Jung frau, which looka directly down upon this spot, in all its majesty. Its snowy crest sparkles in the sunshine nearly thirteen thousand feet l(i height.

We dls-smbftTkea at ihan, and taking a railway hour's" Hitte had commands a splendid view of the Bernese Alps. Berne is on the river Aare, or rather on a bank over a hundred feet above it on a grand terrace. Every one whp does not know that the Bear is the heraldic emblem of Berne will ktvpw it before he has been in the city a quarter of an hour. Two granite bears guard the city gate; every fountain is decorated with them; every statue of a liero is protected by them; all the shops have signs representing Bruin, and the windows are filled with wooden representations of him, some of them extremely comical. Everything that man docs Bruin is represented as doing, by the ingenuity of wood carvers. A party of bears are keeping school, another parly are singing and dancing; in fact, engaged in all sorts of occupations. In the evening we took a walk through some of the curious.old streets, coming upon a fountain iu one square that represented an ogre eating babies.' He had one iu his mouth, and they were peeping out of his pockets and boots, with such pitiable expressions, as to be almost human, and made us want to take them away from the make-believe monster. We attended a fine organ concert in the Cathedral that evening, and heard what is said to be the second best organ in Europe. We afterwards spent an hour on the Cathedral Terrace, a broad, shady walk two hundred feet wide, and between three and four hundred long, a grand place for fine views of the distant mountains long after the sun has set, but leaving its rosy shadow, and the river so far below as to make one fairly dizzy to look over the parapet. The next morning we drove to the Bear Pits just on the edge of the city, where iu a huge den are kept three or four specimens of their tutelar deity, solemnly promenading, or opening their huge jaws t^> catch the buns that spectators throw down to them. Another curiosity is au old clock tower, which goes through a variety of performances a few minutes before the hour. An automaton cock crows, whereupon a steel figure strikes the huge bell with a hammer, and a procession of automaton bears appear and march around upon a wooden platform. Next, a comical old harlequin turns over au hour-glass, nods, waves his sceptre, and the performance concludes with the cock again crowing and flapping his wings. Our next objective point is Geneva, aud were it not that our visit to Paris is still in reserve, we should feel that our wande• r—in™gs- were nearliy over. % . II., . . Plants in Kooms. Prof. Goodale delivered the sixth of his course of lectures on Botany at the Lowell Institute, recently. The first few minutes of the lecture were taken ' up with the discussion of whether or not plants were injurious in dwelling houses. A small night taper was shown the audience by the professor, who remarked,^ at the. same time, that he supposed every one present knew that the lighted taper gave off considerable carbonic acid. Well, the carbonic acid thrown oft' by the taper during a night was not at all injurious to the human system. By experimenting, it has been found that it takes about five hundred ordinary house plants to give off the amount of carbonic acid given by the taper. It will plainly be seen, then, that plants in dwelling houses are not injurious. ABOUT DR. WARNER. If it is a well-established fact that Du. WAKNEK has actually performed more permanent cures within the past seven years that he has been-located in Springfield than any other physician in this country; it does in fact almost seem incredulous that a patient who had received treatment from the best medical skill in New York city, Boston, and Philadelphia, without any benefit, should come to a little city like Springfield and be cured permanently. But such are facts. A large majority of Dr. Warner's patients are those who have been unsatisfactorily treated by other physicians of the highest reputation. The doctor's system of treatment is entirely new as regards practice and payment for services. Other physicians whom you visit ask you almost in the first questions, What seems to be the matter with you? How do you feel? After patients have told a physician all about their case, you can Ree at once that it would be quite an easy matter for the physician to say that he knew what the disease was, whether he did or not. There Dr. Warner differs from others, as he does not allow his patients to tell him; but without a word tells them just how they feel and where-their difficulty lies. If their case is incurable Dr. Warner will fi'ankly tell them so, and have nothing to do with them, while other physicians encourage them, so the patient can visit the trusted professional man as long as their money h*Rlds out, when the physician suddenly comes to the conclusion medicine can do nothing for them. Not so with Dr. Warner.

In this way there Is no chance of. half cured patients going On}; from his treatment, as in most cases where every visit makes the doctor's bill longer and the patient's pocket lighter. With Dr. Warner's method, the first payment entitles the patient. to^treatment until cured, and patients arevnot tempted td - negledt or. postpone calling for that Which costs thein nothing,. . •; Any one afflicted with the following diseases, Dyspepsia, Palpitation of the He&rt, Liver Complaint, Female Complaints, Ulceration, Falling of the Womb, etc., Kidney Dis^Me» piatisitt, Jarindtee; Salt Biieumv; Ptaptea-on the Face, Constipation, Indiscretions of Youth, and all Seminal Weaknwses, all ScroMous Affisctions, Bilious>Com: plaints, Catarrh, Ogld' Feet ^Jands; PilM.&ervotiit atid»fe&6ral UebUity, &o«3, Consultation After you liavp consulted the Doctor, if you do not wish to put your case into his hands, you are in no way obliged to do so. Dear reader, should you be numbered among those who are suffering from disease, and have been under the care of other physicians without benefit, and have become somewhat discouraged, do not give up in despair until you have seen Dr. Warner. Remember, it will cost you nothing to consult him; then you can judge for yourself whether he is superior to any other physician you ever consulted, or not. And right here we would call the attention of our readers to a class of men who solemnly afilvm that all physicians who advertise are Quacks. There is not much difference between a regular Quack and an irregular one. A Regular Quack is one who has attended some regular chartered college for th^term of three years, more or less, obtained a diploma, and received the title of M. D., when in fact he is no more qualified to practice medicine than a child nine years old. He has learned by books to answer certain question-i, with a head full of theory, which when put into practice is sure to kill or disable seven tenths of his patients. Then, for fear that his narrow, contracted mind should expand and he be able to rise above this foolish way, he goes to work and pledges himself to denounce every other way, so that he cannot accept any information (no matter of how much' value if. might be to his fellow-men) from one that pursues a different course. It would be a crime against the rules of the Regulars that-would cause their expulsion, to counsel with one of their own brothers, even though lie had graduated at the same school, and was superior in every respect to them. If he should advertise directly, that very act would be sufficient to stigmatize him as an Irregular Quack. To illustrate, we will point our readers to one fact which happened about a year ago. Mr. , a resident of Boston, who had been told by his family physician that he never could be cured of a certain malady with which he was afflicted, had by the request of his physician consulted others, of the same school of course, and all agreed with the family physician; but through kind providence the man saw Dr. Warner's advertisements in one of the Springfield papers: To make a long story short, he called on the doctor and put his case in his hands. In about four weeks he was entirely cured. After being cured the man called upon his-family physician, who was greatly surprised, yet appeared highly delighted, to see him cured. He inquired who.had cured him. The man told him a Dr. Warner in Springfield. He took the doctor's address and said he would visit him at an early day for the information he should obtain. After this, in conversation, the family physician asked him how he happened to go to see Dr. Warner, and when the man told him ftha,t,it.wasjthrpueh an advertisement, the regular physician exclaimed,—"WHAT! DOES HE ADVERTISE? Then I do not want. tQ know anthing more about IIIM. He is a Quack!" This family physician, we think, without a doubt belonged to the narrow-minded class of Regular Quacks just alluded to. Now there are a good many Quacks who style themselves Regulars, (we call them quacks because *thc-ir work proves them such,) yet we would think it unjust to declare every regular physician a quack, because we KNOW a great many, even in Springfield, to be SJicli. We are well aware that there are quacks, too, among those who advertise, not because they advertise, but because their works show them to be such. As recorded in Sacred Writ, "By their works [or fruits] ye shall know them." . , Dr. Warner challenges any physician in the United States, either iu public or private practice, to produce evidence of half as many cures as he can for the past seven years, — speaking of chronic diseases. Now for the benefit of those who are suffering with disease and are not acquainted with Dr. Warner, and by PERMISSION, we refer you to the following well-known people. A. H.
