N. V' writes : ''I felt generally debil
itated, and my health failing me,l long
ed and prayed for an iron constiutioit
that might be rid of the many annoy
ances of ill-health. But dyspepsia and
urinary troubles, attended by nervotn
prostration, had gotten hold of me
and nothing seemed to give me
any permanent relief. Finally I hap
pened to see an advertisement of
Brown's Iron Bitters. 'Bless me,' says
I by the powers of old Ireland it hap
cured me of all my troubles and given
me a constitution of iron."

There is no length to which the Ma
honities will not go, in their desper
ate and reckless attempt to get control
of the State's treasury. Their organs
have gotten hold of an old letter writ
ten by Dr. Moffet announcing himself a
readj uster candidate for the Legisla
ture from Rockingham county, yean
ago: &nd are republishing it without
date, in order to create the impression
in distinct parts of the State that the
Doctor, who is now a staunch and ef
fective supporter of the regular dem
ocratic State and county ticket, has
become disaffected. Such tricks can
only inspire the right thinking people
of the State with disgust at those who
resort to them.

For our darl ing has gone.
