A MERCHANT in an Indiana town, who though
a church member, was decidedly more of a "busi

But he playd it that time on onr Uncle,
In a way that he Uioojtit mighty wise.
Which they had a small game.
And Ab Sam took a band;

He did not understand
Bnt he Moiled, as be swore to his Income,
Witb a nile that waa child like and bland.
But the stocks that were "litl"
By that smiling Chinee,
And the funds that were bid.
It was srightful to see.
And among them was that twenty thousand
Which the "Alton" had paid unto be.
But be was not so sly
As he meant fur to be.
And be swore onc too much
In that "Alton melee,"
And the boj spot a hold on the papers.
And they went for that swearing Chinee.
In the scene that ensued,
lie did not take a hand ;
But Sin Nut was imbued
Witb the courage to stand.
And declare that snch a thing as a swindle
Wa what Sam did cot nuderstand.
But bis pnrse, which was long.
Had been ustd to conduct
The proceeds of the wrong.
Into his own 'cnsufruct ;
And th ey found that his nest was well feathered.
From the numerous geese be bad plucked.

And I do not complain.

was my condition when I was advised by a Friend to try
the YEGETlXfc., and I could see the good effects from the
first dose I took, and from that moment I kept on Improv

When eight or nine years old I waa afflicted with Scrof

of operations were performed on my eyes, and all to no
good result. Finally the disease principally settled In
my body, limbs and feet, and at times in an aggravated
Last Summer I was from some cause weak in ray spine
and kidneys, and it was at times very hard to retain the
urine. SeeiDg-ouradrertisement In the CWnwciaZ, I
bought a bottle of VEGETINE, and commenced mdntf
according to directions. In two or three days I obtained
great relief. After using four or fire bottles I noticed it
bad a wonderful effect on the rough, scaly blotches on
my body and legs. I still used Vegetlue, and the humor
ons sorts one alter another disappeared, nntil they were
all gone, and I attribute the cure of the two diseases to
Vegetlne. and nothing else.
If I am ever affected with anything of tbe kind again,
I shall try Vegetlue as the only reliable remedy.
Once more accept my thanks, and believe me to be.

IVotice to Teachers.
rWHIE new School Law requires that Teachers Certifi
JL catcs shall be Issued by the Board of Examiners only
to candidates who shall hare passed a public examination
lawfully held, and shall continue In force respectively
two j ears, one year, anu six mourns, accoruing 10 grade,
subject otrly to revocation fur cause. In view of these
Iirovislons, It Is evident: 1st, that a certificate cannot be
awfully dated hack beyond the time when the Board, in
the lawful course of business, actually awarded the same;
2.1, that, although the Board may, by revocation for cause,
abridge, they cannot lawfully extend, the time during
which a certificate fssned by them shall be In force. In
compliance with thn above provisions, there will be a
public examination f applicant for a Teacher's Certifi
cate, at the Court House, in Troy, tbe first Saturday in
the months of August, September, October, and XoTem
ber. .So private examinations will be granted, and no
certificates issued except on compliance with the law.
