house of Charleston, while making
t tracks across the country, came to South
Fork on the Enoree, in the Ray neigh
borhood. They each had a horse, and
were taking the ups and downs together
in a double buggy. They had several
ups as well as downs before coming to
South Fork, where the first serious
down was experienced. In crossing,
the crockery drummer's horse slipped
his bridle while drinking, and horse
like, he thought the water might be
sweeter and more limpid farther down
t stream; despite all efforts of driver and
the shoe horse who each tried to pull
the other way, he persisted in having
his way and continued till he got into
a quicksand up to his flanks, and then
stuck. It was an awful moment-it
seemed there would soon be two drum
mers less-that the places which knew
them would know them no more for
ever. They prayed, then plunged into
the flood, unhitched the horses, and suc
ceeded in relieving the sinking animal.
The next consideration was the buggy.
This was no small job, bnrt they re
joiced at length on seeing it safe on
terra firma. Of course they were a little
damp after getting out of the water,
but have felt happy ever since, par
ticularly as they afterwards learned
that in that same place a four mule
team with wagon and a load of corn, as
also a buggy and horse, all sank to rise
no more. This consoling information
they obtained from Mr. John Duncan.

Encouragement for the Feeble.
Debility, whether it be inherent, or caused
by overtaxed strength, or protracted illness,
has a most depressing influence upon the
mind, breeding an abject melancholy nearly
akin to de,pair, and enforcing the abandon
ment of cherished projects and high hopes.
Happily, the enfeebled system, even in ex
treme cases, is susceptible of invigoration. It
is proved by incontrovertible evidence that
Hostetter's Stomach Bitters is an unfailiug
strengthener of the weak, and that in addition
to vitalizing the physical organization, it es
tablishes regularity among those organs upon
whose efficient discharge of the duties im
posed on them by nature, continued vigor
and health depend. Thousands of instances
might be cited to show the regenerating influ
ence of this health-giving agent in cases of
debility, liver disease, dyspepsia, nervous
ailments, constipation, intermittent fever,
urinary and uterine troulDes, gout and rheu
matism, and other maladies. 14-4t
