Anovel looking craft, with a most un-^aiuai record, reached Vineyard Haven,^Mass , the other day, after a perilous 7.000 !^smile voyage from Paraguay, South Amer-
ca. The boat was manned by as queer a I
rawas is ever seen on a vessel. Capt.^J osjua Siocum was in command, and his '
rewconsisted of his wife and son. The^b oat is called La Liberdals, and for two'^years she has been the floating home of I^Capt. ^iocum's family. fsbe is a curious
pecimenof marine architecture in this aue^of fleet forties and seventies. She is cun-
tructedof Brazilian cedar and iron wood ,^on the lines of a Japanese Sampson, which ;^greatly resembles in model the fishing dory^of Gloucester make, several ot which have j^crossed the Atlantic Her construction is^peculiar and considering the fact that she I^was put together by one man and a boy out^of timber felled for the purpose, she pre-^S ents fairly good lines when viewed from a j
riticalstand point.
sVCapcSiocum was master of the bark :^Aquidneck, when the vessel was IsjsJ on a^M bar near Paraguay, Jan. 20. 1888 He^and his family found themselves in a strange^land without means of reaching home. The j^dea of building a boat struck him and he !^set about collecting materials, which were^very scarce. His contemplated vojage de- I^manded a strongly-built craft, and the for-^eaU furaUhed plenty of timber, but there^was a lack of fastenings. Copper bolts could^be bad, but nt burrs to clinch them, so the^i ndomitableskmper punched holes through^the native coin and they answered the pur- |^p osw admira ^ly. Soon the copper bolt supply^gave out and iron carriage bolts were sub^^stituted After dint of hard work the hull I^was completed, and the craft measured^thirty five feet l ^ng, seven and a half^beasu and three feet deep, weighing about ^^a ton with a measurement ot about three ]^tons. Such a shallow, flat boat model I^could not afford great accommodations for^a crew of four person, so a bouse was built '^above the canvas-covered deck and a minia- {^ture state-room was partitioned off forward ;^for Mrs. Slocum's use. Lockers were let^into this space oeneMh the side decks and^as the cabin ll ^or was raised eighteen^inches from the bottom to give room for !^provisions, all hands were obliged to sleep j^on t he floor.
Sincereaching American waters this^9 oor has been taken our and another^lower one substituted, thus giving ample^space in the twelve toot cabin.
Thesails were made by Mrs. Siocum, I^who is a Boston girl and pretty at that.^They are cut after those of a Chinese Junk,^and stretched on bamboo battens, which^gives them a very outlandish appearance.^The cable cord and rigging ar ^ made from^a vine called beta, which is almost univer^^sally used in South American countries^upon salt water craft, more especially upon^lighters and small coasters. It is very-^strong and pliable. Capt, Siocum says ha^prefers a beta cable because it is easier to^ride by when a heavy sea is running. The^^^at is named the La Litierdale, because^she was ready for sea on tne 13th of May,^when the slaves of Brazil were liberated.^The word means liberty, and she has cer-^t alnly liberated her crew in a wonderful^an aimer, considering the perilous voyage^and its attendant ups and downs.
Tbekitchen of the Liberdale. or nautic-^ally, the galley, is a charcoal stove about^tbe size of a silk hat, and over it tbe meals^are cooked when at sea. Considerable de^^pendence is placed upon canned goods, but^ash appear upon the bill of fare as otten as^anything else Capt, Siocum says the^UM stove Is one of the handiest things on^board. It was recommended to him by a^whip owner in bouth America. The cap^^tain and his son took turns in standiug^watches of six hours' duration, thus giving^aofficient rest, though they were at times^sadly in need of exercise, as tbe boat is so^small that much of the time it was unsafe
tooupon the deck.
Afttbe cabin is the standing room where^the helmsman steers tbe craft, and under^the floor is space for water and stores.^Hatches are at hand to cover tbe standing^room in bad weather, and away up for^^ward under the foremast is the anchor.
Whenthe Liberdale set out on her voy^^age she had a keel, but it become wrenched^and was removed. She is now as flat as n^board and in spite of a lee board claws off^to leeward when working with a head^wind. Off tbe wind she is very fast and^tbe peculiar form of her sails is eminently^adapted for spned.
C'ot.Siocum Is a cool headed mariner,^wh j has followed tbe sea from boyhood,^and he fully weighed tbe chances he was^taking when be pushed into tbe open^ocean on his journey. He strongly con^^demns the cranks who make ocean voy^^ages on wagers, but says that he would^guarantee to drift across to England in 75^days without use of sail or oar. In fact, if^a southern route is taken early in the^season, he says, both wind and current^would carry a boat to the other side in^about the same time that cockle shell navi-^gat ors have managed to get there.
Mrs.Siocum joined her husband in say-^ng that she had enjoyed every moment of^the leng voyage, and though severe bard^ships were encountered, tne plucky woman^has stood by the ship through them all.

The^mercy you extend U^ tbesfflicled organ is^wisely shown by a prompt course of medi^ca ion with Hostetter's Stomach Bitterc,^most genial of alteratives, and the hepatic^giand early reciprocates the deserved at^^tention by resuming its secretive functions^actively and regularly. Among the ac^^companying good results are renewed di^^gestion, free-iom from headaches and a re^^sumption of activity ot the bowels. All^: bilious symptoms disappear, aud appetite^and sleep improve. Beneficent are the ef^^fects of the Bitters in malarial disease,^kidney disorder, rheumatic aliments and^nervousness.

He used^Chamberlain's Colic,Choleraand Diarrhoea :^Remedy and says it succeeded, where all^oth'T remedies failed. Not a single case^was lost in which it was used.

Therewas a terrible epidemic of dysen^^tery and bloody dux in I'ope county, Il^^linois, last summer. As many as five^deaths occurred in one day. Messrs.^Walter Brothers, of Waltersburg, sold over^880 bottles of Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea^Remedy during this epidemic, and say^they never heard of its ruling in any case^when the directions were followed. It^was the only medicine used that did cure^the worst cases. Many persons were^cured by it after the doctors had given them^up. Twenty-five and 50 cent bottles for^sale by H. M. Parehen ^ Co.
