Are we not quite right in assuming
that every reader ol'tho Advertiser win
thank us for inserting among our good
things tho following little poem by Mary
Not to tho man of dollars,
Not to the man of deeds,
Not to the man of cunning,
Not to the man of creeds ;
Not to the one whose passion
Is for the world's renown,
Not in the form of fashion,
Cometh a blessing down.
Not unto land's expansion,
Not to the miser's chest,
Not to the princely mansion,
Not to the blazoned crest;
Not to the sordid worldling,
Not to the knavish clown,
Not to the haughty tyrant,
Cometh a blessing down.
Not to the folly blinded,
Not to the steeped in shame,
Not to the carnal-minded,
Not to unholy fame ;
Not in neglect bf duty,
Not in the monarch's crown,
Not at the smile of beauty,
Cometh a blessing down.
But to the one whose spirit
Yearns for the great and good,
Unto the ono whose storehouse
Yie'deth the hungry food;
Fearless of foe or frown :
Unto the kindly-hearted,
Cometh a blessing down.
A SINGULAR DUEL.
Major Budford, called, by way of
eminence, "the Major," was the most
noted duelist of the day. A dead
shot, a. perferct master of fence, and
in his enmities, utterly relentless, his
name had become a terror to all who
In the midst of a knot of admiring
friends, one day, the Major was dis
cussing his last "affair," and com
placently explained how it came that
he mortally wounded his adv rsary,
instead of killing him on the spot,
when one of two gentlemen standing
within hearing, soddenly advanced
and struck him in the face. The spec
! taters stood aghast. What could have
tempted the stranger to rush thu;
madly - on his fate ? He was an old
man. Already, to appearance,' had
three-score and ten years passed over
his bead. He must, i ideed, have
been weary of life, whose brief rem
nant he was ready to cast away so
The Major WAS astonished. The
very audacity of the act struct: bim
"Is the provocation sufficient, or
must I repeat it?" inquired his as
The Major's first impulse was to
return blow for blow. But fierce find
violent as were his passions, he had
schooled himself to complete mastery
over them, and a moments reflection
told him bootless, undei such cir
cumstances wo.dd be a public brawl.
The indignity Le had received would
admit of but ono repara!rm, and that
he determined to Jose no time in
"The insult is sufRcieor," he an
swered, with forced calmness. " Oblige
me by naming a friend-for your
own name I caro not-to whom may
T refer one of my own ?"
" This gentleman," replied the oth
er, resuming the arm of his compan
ion, " will return here in an hour,
to confer with any one you may de
And the two strangers took their
At sunrise, on thc following morn
ing, the principals and their seconds
made their appearance on the ground
selected. No one else was present
-not even a surgeon. The Major,
in his own past experience, never
required one ; and his opponent, it was
plain, was careless of l he consequence.
'^he e was no necessity for delay.
The preliminaries had been settled.
The parties wei? tu ,'ight with pistols,
at ten paces, the combat to continue
until one or both had fallen. One
condition had been insisted on by the
stranger, which called an indignant
blush to the Major's cheek, as it seem
ed to imply an imputation upon his
honor, though he submitted to it
with the best grace he could. It was,
that before placing the combatants
??be b,o.(jli,ea of both should bc inspec
ted, to see Hil m secrect protective
device was employer ty ?i'her.
The ground was measured, and thc
men placed. Then' was a marked
contrast between thc. two in more
respects than that of year?. Thc old
man, erect and morioniessasa statue,
his whitened locks . floating in the
breeze, never once at looked his
antagonist, though lu's ?-ide was turned.
His face was stern and determined,
but had nothing malignant in it. The
Major, on th'.-ot her and. glared fiel eely
?it his foe, seeming, . ven to gnr.ii .
him the few taoiaenta of life yet eked

j him") ' i?.e ciuyorf.;}, audibly, lo some
whispered e^jopj^ilaijoi; pi* his sec
ond, who was evidently t?i}?}ie$ hy,
the old man's venerable appearance.
The pistols were put in tue ??ands
of the principals, and the giving of
the word explained.
" Gentlemen, are you ready?"
"Ready," both answered.
Still the old man moved not, nor
did he direct a single glance at his
adversary. His eyes were fixed in
front. His attitude was one of rapt
attention. He seemed like one lis
" Fire !"
Without changing the direction of
his gai}?, or other movement than
that of his arm, which rose with the
precision of a nicely adjusted ma
chine, the old man brought his pistol
to the level of his enemy's breast.
Foran instant he held it there. Still
no look in the direction it pointed.
Still the same ap] . -rance of eager
The Major was in no hurry, He
could afford to take his time with a
man who held his pistol at random,
without looking witherward. He took
deliberate aim. He was determined
to make sure work. If his bali miss
ed his adversary's heart, eyen. the
fraction of an inch, he would never
make any pr?tention to skill again.
Tiie sharp report of the stranger's
pistol was* followed by a convulsive
jerk of the Major's arm, causing the
discharge of his weapon fs? wide of!
its mark, while he, staggering a few '
paces backwark, fell heavily to the I
I ' ?".Condu.ct'me to him," said the old :
I man to his friend.
I The latter took his principal's arm,
and led him to the prostrate form of
the Major, whose second, kneeling
by his side, had toriF-open his gar
I meuts, exposing to view tho fatal
wound in his breast, made by the
str nger's bullet.
" Is your friend seriously hurt?"
inquired the latter, coolly.
" You can see for yourself, sir,"
I ??he second answered.
. -"There you're in error," replied
the other ; "lam totally blind !"
The wounded man, who had by
this time revived a little, and his
second, looked at the stranger in as
tonishment. There was no visible
defect in his organs of vision ; but
there was a fixity of look-that "bend
ing of the eyes on vacancy"-which
so unmistakably evinces the absence
"Who are you? and what was
your .motive in seeking this encoun
ter?" the Major faintly murmured.
" First, are you in a condition to
renew ?t ?" inquired the stranger.
" There is no need-I am dying."
:< When I have told you who I
am," the stranger resumed, " you will
scarce require my motive for what I
have done. No wonder you have
forgotten James Morton," he con
tinued, " for he is greatly changed,
The dying man started, and groan
" But I have never forgotten you,
Richard Budford, nor the injuries
you have ?lone me. A cherished
daughter, the pride of my eyes, and
the joy of her mother's heart, you
enticed from her home, deceived by
a sham marriage, and then abandon
ed her to die of a broken heart. My
son, and remaining child, in a rash
attempt to avenge his sister's wrongs,
fell a victim to your accursed' skill.
You even robbed him of the ordi
nary chance of combat, unequal as
they would have been, by encasing
your cowardly body in concealed ar
mor. The loss of both our children
unsettled my wife's reason, and she
..lied in :t mad-house. Could I have
found you then, I would have given
you no chance for your life ; but val
liant as you have always professed to
be, and coward as you are, you fear
ed and evaded me. Yet I knew we
should one day meet ; and I register
ed a vow, that when we did I would
offer you a sacrifice to your own in
fernal art. To this end I studied to
become an adept in it, and succeed
ed. And when, at length, blindness
cast its shadow upo;, me, and seem
ed to render hope! ess the fulfillment
of my vow, instead of abandoning it,
I betook myself to a new species of
practice. I sought to make hearing
take the place of sight. Again I
succeeded. I learned to take aim
with ear instead of eye. When I
heard you auswer 'ready,' to-day, I
knew the exact direction in which to
point my pistol, as well as if I had
seen you. Besides, I could hear you
breathing where you stood. You lost
your chance in delaying your fire.
Yon wished to make sute work, and
More than once tlie Major looked
appealingly at the speaker's face ;
but in Those remorseless, sightless
eyes, there was no sympathy. And
as thc labored breathing grow faint
er, the old man resumed his listening
attitude. At last all was still.
'. lie is dead !" ? he said ; and its
wonted expression of sober melan
choly settled on the old man's face,
as, taking his companion's arm, he
turned and walked leisurely away.
Exercise and Rest.
Exercise can kill as well as cure.
If it be taken advantageously, it
should be done with judgment.
Sometimes a particular part of the
body needs exercise, but the whole
body is too weak to give it. In such
cases only the part needing it should
haye it. But there is one rule which
is ?ppljcabje to all-never go against
the in-tinets. Many persons '?ave
hurried themselves into the grave
by endeavoring to keep up when
they ought to be in bed ; and they do
keep up, too, for so long a time that
when t hey take to bed their strength is
so completely exhausted that the
system has no power to risc, and
they fall into a typhoid condition and
all is lost. When anything serious
is the matter with domestic animals
they court quietude and perfect rest.
Sometimes we feel ?nili.-poyet) tcj exer
cise from sheer laziness; in all ??ute
conditions of the bowels, debility, an
inst i net i ve desire to sit down and
stay there, is universal.
In most ol' such cases quietude is
cure. But there is one safe cure for
all under all circumstance:; if every
step you take is with an effort, do not
take another-go to bed ; if you feel
the better for n walk, then walk, b:it
stop .-ho! L ol'great fatigue.-Dr. W.
A U\i'&? irish Auecdute.
Some years ago, when the beauti
ful painting pf Adam and Eve was
exhibited itt Ireland, it became the
chief topic of conversation, finally
an illiterate peasant went to see it.
The light was arranged so as to re
flect on the picture and leave the
spectator in comparative darkness.
The peasant as he entered the room
to see his first parents, was struck
with so much astonishment that he
remained speechless for some mo
ments. He stood like a statue; as
though his feet were incorporated with
the oaken floor of the room. At last
with an effort he turned to an ac
quaintance a. d said :
" Barney, I'll niver say another

eat ivery apple in it, for the sake of
such a lovely creature as Eve."

THE CAUSE AND CUBE OF CONSUMPTION
-The primary cause of Consumption ls derange
ment of the digestive organs. This derangement
produces deficient nutrition and assimilation. By
assimilation I mean that process by which the nu
triment or the food ls converted Into blood, and
thence Into the solids of the body. Persons with
digestion thus Impaired, having the slightest pre
disposition to pulmonary disease, or IT they take
cold, will be very liable to have Consumption of
the Lungs in some of Its forms; and I hold that it
will be Impossible to cure any case of Consumption
without first restoring a good digestion and healthy
assimilation. The very first thing to be done ls to
cleanse the stomach and bowels from all diseased
mucus and slime, which ls clogging these organs so
that they cannot perform their functions, and then
rouse up and restore the liver to a healthy action.
For this parp?se the surest and best remedy ls
Schenck's Mandrake Pills. These Pills clean the
stomach and bowels of all the dead and morbid
sllme-'that is causing disease and decay in the whole
system. They will clear out the liver of all diseased
bile that has accumulated there, and rouse lt up tc
a new and healthy action, by which natural and
healthy bile Is secreted.
The stomach, bowel?, ?id liver are thus cleansed
by thc use of Schenck's Mandrake Pills; but there
remains In the stomach an excess of acid, the
organ li? torpid and the appetite poor. DJ the bow
els the lacteals are weak, and requiring strength
and support. It ls In a condition like this that
Schenck's Seaweed Tonic proves to be the most
valuable remedy ever discovered. It is alkaline,
and. Us u*& will neutralise all excess of acid, mak
ing the stomach sweet and fresh; lt will give per
manent ton-- to this Important organ, and create
a good, hearty appetite, and prepare the system
for the first process of a good digestion, and
ultimately make good, healthy, living blood.
After this preparatory trentment, what remains
to cure most cases of Consumption ls tho free
and persevering use of Schenck's Pultuonk) Syrup.
The Pulmonlc Syrup nourishes fte ?ystem, puri
fies the blood, and ls readily absorbed Into the
circulation, and thence distributed to the diseased
lungs. There it riutus all morbid matters, whether
In the farra. abscesses or tubercles, and then
assist? future to expel all the diseased matter, In
tu? farm of free expectoration, when once lt ripens.
It ls then, bv the great healing and purifying
properties of Schenck's Pulmonlc Syrup, that all
ulcers and cavities arc healed up sound, and my
patient Ls cured.
The essential thing to be done In curing Con
sumption Is to get up a cood appetite and u good
digestion, so that the body will crow In flesh and
get strong. If a person has diseased lungs,-a
cavity or abscess there.-the cavity cannot heal, the
matter cannot ripen, so long as th? system ls below
par. What ls nectary to cure ls a new order of
thing?,-a good appetite, a good nutrition, the bodv
to grow in flesh and get fat; then Mature ls helped,
the cavities will heal, the matter will ripen and be
thrown oft in large quantities, and the person
regain health sod strength. This Ls the true and
only plan to cure Consumption, aud If a person ls
very had. if the lung ? ure not entirely destroyed,
or even If one lung ls entirely jone. If thero is
enough vitality left Tn the other to heal up, there ls
I have seen many perons cured witta only one
sound King, live and oul'iy life toasood old agc
This ls what Schenck's Medicines will do to cure
Consumption. They will clean out the stomach,
sweeten and strengthen lt, get op a good digestion,
and give Nature tho u?ntaoce she needs to clear
the system of all the tllseaae that is In the lungs,
whatever the form may he.
It Ls Important that while usine Schenck's Medi
cines, care should be exercised not to tak?> cold :
keep ln-doors In cold und damp weather: avoid
night air. apd take out-door exercise only lu a
genial and worm sunshine.
I wbh lt distinctly understood thar when I recom
mend a patient to be careful in regard to taking'
cold, while using my Medicines, I do so for a special
reason. A man who has but partially recovered
from the effects of a bad cold ls for more liable to
a relapse than one who has been entirely cured:
and lt ls precisely the s*me In regard to Consump
tion. So I'-ng as the lungs are not perfectly healed,
Just so long ls there Imminent danger ora full re
turn of the disease. Hence lt Ls that I so strenu
ously caution pulmonary patients against exposing
themselves to au atmosphere that ls nat genial and
pleasant. Confirme-! Consumptives' lungs are a
moss of sores, which the least change of atmos
phere will inflame. The grand secret of my suc
cess with my Medicines consists In my ability to
subdue Inflammation Instead of provoking rf. as
many of the faculty do. An inflamed lune ca., .ot,
with safety to the patient, be exposed to the biting
Masts of winter or the chilling winds of Spring
i r Autumn. It jhould be carefully shielded from
*!i irritating influences. The utmost caution
should he observed In fills particular, as without lt
a cure under almost auy circumstances Is an Impos
The person should be kept on a wholesome and
nutritious diet, and all the Medicines continued
ontll the body hos restored toil the natural quantity
of flesh and strength.
I was myself cu and by this treatment of tho worst
kind of Consumption, and have lived to get fat and
hearty these many years, with one lung mostly
gone. I have eurea thousands since, and very
many have been cured, by this treatment whom I
have never seen.
About the First of October I expect to take posses
sion of my new building, at the Northeast Corner ol
Sixth a-.d Arch Streets, whero I shall be pleased to
give advlce.to all who may require it.
Full directions accompany all my Remedies, so
that a person In any part of the woild can be
readily cured by a strict observance of the same.
