Impotency, Loss of Power, immediately Cured
and full Vigor Restored.
This Distressing Affection which renders Life
miserable and marriage impossible is the penalty
paid by the victims of improjHT indulgences.
Young persons are too apt to commit excesses
from uot being aware of the dreadful conscqenccs
that may ensue. Now, who that understands
the iubject will pretend to deny that the power
of procreation is lost sooner by those falling into
improper habits than by the prudent? Besides
being deprived the pleasures of healthy offspring,
the most serious and destructive symptoms to both
body and mind arise. The system becomes de

Dr. J. addresses those who have iajurrd
themselves by improper indulgence and solitary

them for ither business, study, socl'y or mar

What a pity that a youug man, the hope of his
country, the darling f his parents, should be
tnutched lrom all prospects and enjoyments of
life, by the consequence of deviating from the
path of nature and indulging in a certain secret
habit. Such persons ntl'ST before contemplating
reflect that a sound mind and body are the most
necessary requisites to promote connubial happi
ness. Indeed without these, the journey through
life becomes a weary pilgrimage; the prospect
hourly darkens to the view ; the mind becomes
i-tindowed with despair and tilled with the melan
choly reflection, that the Lappincas of another
becomes hllchted with our own.
A CERTAIN DISEASE.
When the misguided and imprudent votary of
pleasure finds that he has imbibed the seeds of
this painful disease, it too often happens that an
Kl-tlmed sense of shame, or dread of discovery,
deters hira from applying to those who, from
education and respectability, can alone befriend
Urn, delaying till the constitutional symptoms of
this horrid disease make their appearance, such
as ulcerated sore throat, diseased nose, noetural
pi.ius iu the head and limbs, dimness of sight,
lea.fness, nodes on the shin bones and arms,
blotches on the head, face and extremities, pro
gressing with frightful rapidity, till at last the
palate of the mouth or the bones of the nose fall
in, aud the victim of this awful disease becomes
a horrid object of commiseration, till detu puts
a period to his dreadful suffering, by sending
him to " that Undiscovered Country from whence
no traveller returns."
It is a melancholy fact that thousands DIE
victim to this terrible disease, through falling
into the hands of Ignorant or unskillful PRE
TENDERS, who, by the use of that deadly Poi
son, Mercury, Vc, "destroy the coubtitution, and
incapable of curing, keep the unhappy sufferer
month aft-r month taking their noxious or in
jurious compounds, and instead of being restored
to a renewal of Life Vigor and Hnppine-s, in des
pair leave him with ruined Health to ,-igli over
b;s galling disappointment.
To bach, thcre!oie, Dr. Johnston pledges him
f elf to preserve tlie most Inviolable been ey, and
from his extensive practice aud observation in
the great Hospital' of Europe, :n:d the lir-t h.
this country, viz: Eng'and, France, Philadelphia
mid elsewhere, is enabled to offer the most cer
tain, scdy and cffeetu.-'l remedy in the world
..r all diseases of inii iudcnce.

doors from the corner. Fail not to observe name
letter received unless postpaid and
containing a stamp to be used on the reply. Per
sons writing should state age, and send a portion
of advirtisement describing symptoms.
There are so many Paltry, Designing and
Worthless Impnftcrs advertising themselves as
Physicians, trifling with and ruining the Lea It u
of 'ail who unfortunately fall into their power,
that Dr. Johnston deems it necessary to say es
pecially to those unacquainted with his refuta
tion that his Credentials or Diplomas always
liantf in his office.
ENDORSEMENT OF THE PRESS.

ment, year alter year, and the numerous im
portant Surgical Operations performed by Dr.
Johnston, witnessed by the representatives of the
press and many other papers, notices of wWdi
have appeared aeain And aga'e before the public,
besides bis standing as a gentleman of character
and responsibility, is a sutlicient guarantee tothe
afflicted- Shin diseases speedily cured.

THE PIEEAR OF BEAUTY.
"Scatter the germs of the beautiful !
By I he 'wayside let them fall,
That the rose may spring by the cottage g;ite,
And the vine on the garden wall ;
Cover the rough and rude of earth
With a vail of leaves and flowers,
And maik with the opening bud and cup
The march of Summer's hours.
"Scatter the germs of the beautiful
Iu the holy shrine of hoine !
Let the pure, the fair and the graceful there
In the loveliest lustre come ;
Leave not a trace of deformity
Iu the temple of the heart,
But gather about tbe earth its germs
Of nature and of art.
"Scatter the germs of the beautiful
In the temple of our God
The God who starred the uplifted sky,
And flowered the trampled sod ;
When lie built a temple Himself,
And a home for His priestly race,
He reared each arch in symmetry
And curved each line in grace.
"Scatter the germ of the beautiful
In the depths of the human soul ;
They bud nt.d blossom, and bear the fruit.
While the endless ages roll.
Plaut with the flowers of charity
The portals of the tomb,
And the fair and pure about Ills path
In Faradisc shall bloom."

ers of the Active base ball club, of Reading,
when they played the Independent club of
liewisburg, on Wednesday, Sept. 2d.
The story of this remarkable creature
has never found its way into print, and
singular as it may seem, the people of Lew
isburg all unite in saying that they have
never heard of a parallel case. Emma
Britton is a female ; dresses like a female,
and has the appearance of a female ; but
in every other respect she is a male. She
talks, acts and conducts herself in the
most minute particular just like a man.
When au Eagle reporter first caught a
glance at her, sho was leaning up against
a tree ou a street corner mingling with and
talking to a number of young men.
While she was talking she had her legs
crossed in front and was cutting her finger
naila just as natural as any ill-bred man
would do. The reporter asked a Iwis
btirg gentleman all about it, and he was
told. The female is said to bo in every
way respectable and pure as far as her
character is concerned. She bears a good
name, is rich, speaks to anJ is well thought
of by everybody, yet she ha9 contracted
boyLdi habits, men's ways aud minor vices,
and has learned almost to hate Iwr sex, as
she shuns them entirely.
Iu conversation she uses the common
vulgarisms of the. day. She is witty, bright,
intelligent, and knows how to take her
own part. Young men speak to her just
as she speaks to them, and be the conver
sation what it will she joins in and talks
her share. No matter how vulgar it is,
she is as vulgar as the rest of them, aud
she does it just as if she had as good a right
to do it as anybody else. Strange as it
may seem, the conversation is never ad
dressed to her individual self.
Upon the ordinary question of the daj
she is well posted, and sporting matters
she kLOws all the way through. She is
about 24 years of age, medium height, me
dium weight, has short black hair hanging
about her neck, regular features, small blue
eyes and pale looking. Her weight may
be about 140 pounds, and Wednesday she
was dressed iu a gray alpacca overBkirt
a fancy stray hat turned on one side.
She welcomed the reporter and immedi
ately commenced talking base ball. She
possesses good judgment, for as soon as
she saw the Active club she offered to bet
fifty to twenty ou them, and to make mat
ters business like she pulled out a roll of
greenbacks. She shook her head, spit out
like n man, and declared il was ud use talk
ing or playing a "Snide" club agaiust a
crack organization. Then she asked seve
ral to her private barouche and olfered
them refreshments. Iewisburg is in a
local option county and selling liquor at all
is prohibited. It is well for liquor drinkers
to know the Lewisburg girl of the period in
The subject of this article. Miss Britton,
is a very successful horsewoman. Like a
man bhe will cross iicr limbs and trot au
animal as far as any man, and as swiftly
too. As a jockey and a judge of horseflesh
! she has no superior in that section of the
' State. She drinks liquor when she pleases,
i and her motions before the bur or anywhere
! else are precisely like those those of a man.
Iicr style of ball playing is remarkable. No

When she i thirsty she will drink ale or
gin. She never becomes intoxicated, nor
does she chew tobacco. Those two vices
she is free of. But she tan swear very ar
tistically, sing cheerfully, dance fairly, run,
iurun. crack a joke, tell a story foul or
! otherwise and keen hei end up in the con
versation no matter what the subject may
be. At times she becomes vulgar, and
quite obscene, which, to one not accustom
ed to her ways, is shockiug and disgusting;
j while her male acquaintances pay no more
attention to her than if they had spokeu
themselves. She runs to fires ; plays foot
ball ; loafs around corners ; sits on curb
stones ; goes round with the boys ; lights
and quarrels whenever there is a row ;
takes her own part, resents an insult and
hates, as a general thing, all sorts of ef
feminacy, and has very little to do with
On the ball field she mingled with the
players very freely ; and wheu not catch
ing ball she sat down on the grass, cross
legged fashion, among a bevy of young
men, and intently watched the game.
Strange as it may appear no one ever
speaks to her in a disrespectful manner as
far as relates to her general character ; and
while she is anything but a lady in her
conduct, there is no one in all Lewisburg,
or outBide of it for that matter, can say
one word against her or accuse her of any
thing worse than what is shove recorded.
Miss Britton, or Johnnie Britton, as she
is called there, was born in Lewisburg.
Her parents were very well off. When quite
young she was given many privileges, and
most of her lime was spent with little boys.
As she grew up the habit of associating
with her opposite sex developed, and final
ly she became averse to associating with
j any but boys. She played marbles with
them, went with them almost everywhere,
, and so well was she liked that no excur-
sion party was complete without Johnnie
Britton was among them. The boys crew
up with the girl, and now have become so
attached ttf her hiat they treat her ia all
respects just as one of their own number.
f.On the day of the ball game she charter
ed a barouche and run it from the hotel to
the -ball "round for the benefit of her
friends. She at all times has a roll of green
backs in her pocket; is willing to bet, treat,
loan, buy or trade; and is extremely liberal
among her friends. She is never seen on
the streets at night, however. This is a
noble example she sets to the young men
of Lewisburg. After nightfall she remains
at home and passes her time with her
widowed mother. She has no one paying
attention to her. A member of the Read
ing club asked her whether she was never
going to be married. She replied : "Well,
I can't say, but I guess not. I hate wo
men and hate to be recognized as one.
Don't think I shall ever be foolish enough
Lewisburg is in a local option county,
and nothing strong is openly sold. Miss
Britton informed the Reading gentlemen
that if they wanted any ale, she could tell
them where to get it. Only one saloon
keeper sells ale. He says it is Lauer's.
He has it shipped to a point five miles dis
tant, in a non-local option district, and
then he goes for it by wagon at night. He
sells it down in a cellar, in a narrow red
not room, and gets ten cents for a very
stnall glass, or three glasses for a quarter.
Miss Britton is about the only one in Lew
isburg who can get what she wants at that
point, as the proprietors have the utmost
confidence in her. She says that chewing
tobacco is a disgusting habit, and one that
young men ought to break up. She mounts
a horse just like a man, and ride with great
skill aud darinj.
.111 in an, mis temaie is one oi tne most
remarkable personages of the kind we have
ever heard of. She visits the town cymna-
sium, dresses iu tights and performs and
exercises with the rest of the boys. And
to-day, there is not a kinder soul in that
section. She was particularly obliging and
accommodating, and did everything to
make the stay of the Reading club pleasant
and agreeable. Siie was the observed of
all observers among the visitors : aud the
Reading gentlemen, as may be imagined, j
were so totally overcome with the singular
monstrosily that they looked on in mute
astonishment, had very little to say, and
allowed the man-womau to do all the. talk
ing herself. A great institution is "John
nie" Britton, aud'Le-visburg has at least
one thing about it to write up, ia remem

known little town. Eculing Evjle.

Capt. McPelter replied that there wuz a

Capt. McPelter gave the word and a pur
soot commenced, the heroism uv wich hez
seldom bin ekalled in the history uv the
world. A wav thro the corn, ovpr the Rtnh-

ring uv the deadly rifle wuz herd in all di

I.oNw Battle Between Oxex. The
Augusta (Me.) .hurrnal has the following
account of a protracted battle between two
oxen it: that State: 'Mr. Corydon Chan
wick and Mr. Sullivan Erskine have a pas
ture iu common at South China, which
they use for the pasturage of cattle in the
pasture. Mr. Chadwick and Mr. Erskine
have each an ox with a lopped or crooked
horn, the right horn of one and the left of
the other having that peculiar formation.
These oxen were turned loose into the
common pasture, and was between them
on that spot that the pitched battle of
which we are to speak took place. For se
veral days these cattle had been missing ;
when the other cattle came up these were
not among the number. How many days
they had been missing before search was
instituted is not definitely known ; but be
coming alarmed the owners went in quest
of them. Coming to an opening in the
woods, covering an area of about half an
acre, Mr. Chadwick, who went in search,
came upon a sickening spectacle. The lop
ped horns of the oxen were clasped, and
the exhausted animals, united compactly,
stood face to face, wailing for death, hav
ing apparently given up the struggle. It
is supposed that while they were engaged
in play their horns became entangled ; fail
ing to disconnect themselves, a terrible
struggle of jerpral days took place. The
horns off, that a separation could be effect
ed. There was festering sores where tbe
horns went in. Thus a mortal conflict
lasting eight days, had been going on be
tween these oxen, who in that time had not
een able to lie down. Their jaws had to
be pried open, aod gruel administered to
them. Their heads bad been united so
closely that their faces were bare to the
bone. It is possible the animals may live.
Laxocageof Insects and Animals.
Our notice was lately attracted to the la
bors of a colony of small black ants, which
has taken up its abode in a chink of the
wall outside our office window. A solitary
ant, evidently on a foraging expedition, .
suddenly encountered a scrap of bread,
which had fallen on the sill several feet
from his home. Instead of nipping off a
fragment and carrying it away, the insect
apparently made a careful examination of
the entire piece, and then turned and ran
at full speed back to tbe hole. In an in
stant hundreds of ants emerged and marcb
ed directly to the bread, which they at
tacked, and very speedily, morsel by ruor
eel transported it to their dwelling.
Another good instance is that of a ter
rier dog belonging to a friend, from hom
we obtained the facts. The animal some
how, it seems, excited the ire of s larger
dog, and accordingly received aa unmerci
ful shaking. Shortly after the terrier was
seen in close consultation with a huge
Newfoundland. The result was that they
both trotted off together, and found the
terrier's assailant, which tlwn nd there
received a ferocious thrashing from tb
Newfoundland, while the te-Tier stood by
and wagged his tail in high glee.
The last which came urder our own ob
servation was that of a brood of Tery young
chickens which, losinytbdr parent, refused
to go with another hm but manifested an
extraordinary affction for a pair of tur
keys almost as ja-emle as themselves. The
turkeys have ssumed all the parental
functions, scotching worms for their
charges, and gathering them under their
wings, whil the chickens appear to com
prehend tie significance of the turkeys'
"pe'ep" equally as well as they did the
clucking of their natural mother.
In tl; case of the ants, it is clear that
the siigle insect must have imparted the
news of his discovery to an entire commu
nis of his fellows ; in that oftbe dogs, the
terrier must have made tbe Newfoundland
understand the circumstances of his mis
fortune, and so secured sympathy and as
sistance; between the chickens and tur
keys, apart from the singularity of the, re
lation, it is curious to remark that the lan
guage of one fowl was un 'erstood by one
of different species.
" Th Eulthrn! Roy.
Gerhardt was a German shepherd boy :
and a noble boy be was, loo, although he
was very, very poor. One day as he was
watching his flock, which was feeding in a
valley on the borders of a forest, a hunter
came out of the wood, and asked :
"How far is it to the nearest village ?"
"Six miles, sir," replied the boy, "but
the road is only a sheep track, aud Tery
Tbe hunter glanced at the crooked track,
and then said :
"My lad, lam hungry, tired, and thirsty.
I have lost my companions, and missed my
way. Leave your sheep and show me the
road. I will pay you welL"
"I cannot leave my aheg p, sir," replied
the boy. "They would stray into the
forest, and be eaten by the wolves, or sto
len by the robbers."
"Well, what of that?" replied the hunt
er. "They are not your sheep. The loss
of one or more wouldn't be much to your
master, aud I'll give you more money than
you ever earned in a whole year."
"I eaunot go, sir," rejoined Gerhardt,
very firmly ; "my master pays me for my
time, and he trusts me with his sheep. If
I were to sell my time, which does not be
long to me, and the sheep should get lost,
it would be just the same as if I stole
"Well," said the hunter, "will you trust
your sheep with me while you go to the
village and get some food and drink and a
guide ? I will take care of them for you.'
The boy shook his head. "The sheep
do not know your voice, and " here Ger
hardt stopped stM-aking.
"Sir," said the boy. slowly, "you tried
to make me f !. my tiust, and wanted
me to break my trust to my master. How
do I know you woiil! keep your word In
The hunter hushed ; but he felt that the
boy had fairly silenced him. He said : "I
see, my lad, that you are a good, faithful
boy. I will not forget you. Show me the
rotul, and I will follow it myself."
Gerhardt now offered the humble con
tents of his wallet to the hungry man, who,
coarse as they were, ate them gladly.
Presently his attendants came up, and
then Gerhardt, to his surprise, found that
the hunter was the Grand Duke, who own
ed all the country round. The Duke was
so pleased with the boy's honesty, that he
sent for him shortly after, and had him
educated. In after years Gerhardt became
a very rich and powerful man, and he re
mained honest and true to his dying day.
Honesty, truth and fidelity are precious
jewels in the character of a child. When
they spring from piety they are pure dia
monds, and make their possessor very
beautiful, very happy, very honorable, and
very useful. May you young readers,
wear them as Gerhardt did I Then one
greater than a Duke will befriend yoo, for
