Forget the First Dose.
MR. H. E. STEVENS:
l>ear Sir,-l hav- been a great sufferer
from dropsy. I was coliiud to my house
more than a year. Six months of the time
I was entirely helpless. I was obliged to
have two men hell) me in and out of bed.
I was swollen 19 inches laiger than my
natural size around my waist. I suffered all
a man could and live. I tried all remedies
for Dropsy. I had three different doctors.
My friends all expected I would (ie; many
nights I was expected to die before morn
in At la2t Vegetine was sent me by a
frend. I never shall forget the first dose.
I could realize its good effects from day to
day; I was getting better. After I had taken
some 5 or 6 bottles I could sleep quite well
at nights. I began to gain now quite fast.
After taking some 10 bottles. I could walk
from one part of my room to the other. My
appetite was good; the dropsy had at this
time disappeared. I kept taking the Vege
tine until I regained my usual health. I
heard of a great many cures by using Veg
tine after T got out and was able to attend
to my work. I am a carpenter and builder.
I will also say it has cured an aunt of my
wife's of Neuralgia, who h4d suffered r
more than 20 years. She says she has not
had any neuralgia for eight months. 1 haye
given it to my children for Cancer Humor.
I have no doubt in my mind it will cure any
humor; it is a great cleanser of the blood;
it is safe to give a child. I will recommend
it to the world. My father is 80 years old,
and he says there is nothing like it to give
strength and life to an aged person. I can
not be too thankful for the use of it. I am,
Very gratefully yours,
JOHN S. NOTTAGE.

1EINIE'S FIRST SORROW$
Jeanie Moore was the prettiest
irl in Groveland. "None knew
ier but to love her," as the poet
;ays, and old Farmer Moore was
>roader of his one daughter, than
)f all his lands, and well he might
This summer Jeanie bad come
home from boarding-school for
ood, and the old farm rang with
ier clear- bird-like tones as she
lew from room to room, leaving
iokens of her dainty womanly
Young Dr. Lowell had been a
)oarder- at the farm for three
ears. When he had first seen
reanie she had been a little win
ing girl, quite willing to be taken
yn the grave young man's knee,
and talk thoughtfully as he and
er father talked.
But now things were quite dif
erent, and as Howard -Lowell
watched the graceful form crown
d by the lovely flower-like face,
nd each day saw the pure, un
~elfish nature unfold more and
nore, he grew to look upon her
n another light, and to think
bat it would be very sweet to
iave that blooming face grow
nore bright at his approach than
it any other.
So the days went by, and al
hough no words had as yet
>roken the sweet silence, the two
young hearts were knitting fast
ogether when any story opens.
eanie had changed from a shy,
)ushing school girl into a beauti
'ul self possessed - maiden, con
cious in her inmost heart of be
ng loved, and of returning that
One evening as they all sat
round the cosy tea table. little
red, Jeanie's brother, bounded
nto the room, full of news whbich
~vidently seemed very important
"Oh, father the big house has
een :bought !" Now the "big
2use," as Fred called it, was the
2ouse of Groveland. High u pon a
21l1 it towered in its gray stone
tateliness above all the rest of
he village. It had been unoc
uied for many years.
"Well, I'm glad of that," heart
ly exclaimed Farmer Moore. "It's
, shame so much fine property
hould have gone to wreck and
uin so long, when it might be
made such an ornament to the
illage. Do you know who has
bought it, Freddy ?"
"Yes, sir, it is a widow lady
named Almer, and she has two
Dr. Lowell here gave a sudden
start, which caused Jeanie to
glance over -at him, and to her
surprise she saw he was violently
agitated. His face was white as
death, and with his lips parted be
looked fixedly at' Freddy, as if
waiting to hear more.
Seeing his emotion attracted at
tention ho hastily rose and with
out speaking, left the room.
Jeanie's interest in Freddy's
news- was en tirely lost in her won
derment over Dr. Lowell's strange
demeanor. It was quite late in
the evening before he rejoinec
them ; but when he came back he
w.s as slf.nnssnssed and quiet af
ever, yet there was something
peculiar in his manner, and Jeanic
ielt the change, although unlik6
most women she refrained from
asking any questions.
It was true "Waban Hall" had
at lait found ocoup-nts. Mrs*Al.
mner and her two daughters were
pleasant and unaffected, and it was
not long before the new-comers
became well acquainted in tle
After a time Jeanic called to
welcome them and extend the
hospitalitf of the farm, and she
returned hoipe delighted with her
visit. Mrs. Almer was so. kind,
nd th girls, Zlla and Ruth, so
charming and friendly. Jeanie
talked enthusiastically for some
time about her new friends, and
Dr. Lowell listened to all she said
'ftpr a few weeks, invitaLions
came to the farm, for a party to
be held at the "Hall."
"Shall you go, little one ?"
questioned her father.
Jeanie looked up-at Dr. Lowell,
arrd was surprised again by the
odd pallor of his face. It was
decided they should go, and the
eventful evening arrived. The
"Hall" was ablaze with light,
and fragrant with the aromatic
perfume of flo>wers, and as Jeanie
entered the room on the doctor's
arm, her girlish hekrt gave a
great bound. She bad been to
but few parties, and youth loves
life and gayety.
But her pleasure that evening
was not what she had expected,
and as she lay in her own little
bed at home that night, and
thought over her lover's bewil
dering conduct, the pretty head
baried itself in the pillows, and
any one listening might have
heard smothered- sobs.
Shortly after their arrival her
escort had left her, and devoted
himself to Ella Almer. Not that
Jeanie was neglected-that, her
beauty and popularity never allow
ed her to be-but she had watched
with a keen eye her lover's man
ner- toward Miss Almer.
From their first meeting the
resrve whiTh he generally held
toward strangers had been want
ing, and he seemed to become
more and more engrossed in her
The long walk home that evening
had been taken almost in silence,
and Jeanie's heart, all unused to
trouble, sank very low as she
thought she had been unmaiders
ly in giving her love so freely,
and now her punishment had
come. Yet a heart once out of
one's keeping cannot be called
back suddenly without pain.
And this was only the commence
ment of her sorrow. Day after
day Dr. Lowel was a guest at
"Waban Hall," and Jeanie often
saw him and Ella Almer riding
or walking together. Farmer
Moore never noticed how grave
the wearisome face was growing,
for with the pride of womanhood
Jeanie kept her grief to herself.
She had mrade up her mind bitter
ly, that while she had been loving
with all the fervor of her warm,
impulsive heart, he, whom she
ad thought so noble had only
been trifling with her-testing his
powers of pleasing.
She avoided meeting him as
much as possible, and so the time
passed, until one morning as she
rose from the breakfast table, Dr.
"Cain you speak ivith me a little
w hile, Jeanie ? It is almost im
possible for me to see you alone
Never had his voice pronounced
her name more tenderly. Was
he about to make her a confidante
of, his ne w found-love ? Jeanie
raised her eyes quietly to his face,
then answering, "Certainly," led
the way to the library.
She seated herself,and he, stand
ing before her, - after a slight
"Jeanie, the time has come for
this mystery to be explained, and
I can tell you who I am."
The girl's large dark eyes opened
'-Whbo you are !"
"Yes," he said, laughingly, "I

commenced, I cannot describe the
persecutions my stepfather inflict

Perhaps it was because of my then
headstrong, impulsive nature. I
was a passionate boy, and at last,
driven desperate, I ran away from

now, Jeanie, comes the most won
derful part of my story.
"I have found my mother and
sisters, at last free from the one
who made my boyhood so wretch

stepfather had taken his family
abroad, and from then until now
we have never met.
"How I have longed to speak

I feared that the prodigal who so

my sister Ella spoke so tenderly

had lost, I could keep silence
no longer. I shall keep my dear
adopted father's name, but Mrs.
Almer, whom you already like so
much, is my mother, and Ella and
Ruth are my siters."
Then, with an abrupt change in
his voice, Dr. Lowell stooped, and
raising the soft little hand which
lay listlessly in the girt's lap,
clasped it firmly in his3own as he

BIROADBRIVMS PARIN LET
The Grand Fete of the 30th of June---Splendid
11luminations All Over Paris---Street
Scenes--The Midnight Procession-The
A few' weeks ago I remarked that,
if there was anything which a
Frenchman loved it waR a holiday;
we have had a good many lately,
races, reviews and general jollifica
tions, but nothing in magnitude
and grandeur to approach the
grande fete of Sunday, the 30th of
June, which, for elaborate detail,
was undoubtedly the grandest that
France has seen in the memory of
living men. For weeks past we
have been holding our breatbs in
anticipation of it; the busy note of
preparation might be heard all over
Paris, among all classes and in
every quarter. The ancieng.oblesse
of the quarter St. Germain are not
near as enthusiastic as their com
patriots of Belleville or the ouvriers
of the Faubourg St. Antoine. You
may briefly divide Frenchmen into
two classes; one prides itself on its
perfect imperturbility and sang
froid, and the other flies off like a
champagne cork and is never easy
unless it is kicking up some kind of
For a day, at least, order has
reigned in Warsaw. For one day
there was a sort of general political
amnesty declared; and for the first
time in many years imperialists and
republicans, monarchists and com
munists, buried the little hatchet,
took a whiff at the pipe of peace
and on the 30th of June, Anno Dom
ini 1878, have had a grand jollifi
cation and a general shake hands
over the bloody chasm. It was not
every man, or for that matter, every
woman either, who could shout:
"Vive l'Empire" or "Vive la Re
publique" or "Vive la Commune,"
but there was not a man or woman
within the walls of Paris, but could
say from the very bottom of their
hearts "Vive Ia France !" Saturday
night was a night of exceptional
atprm ; the rain had fallen lightly
in the evening, and towards mid
night it increased to a torrent. On
Sunday, as daylight broke, the
skies grew clear and the morning
was one of the loveliest of the
season. Flags flew in every direc
tion,teminding me of the morning
of the opening of the Centennial at
Philadelphia. Over many houses
the cross of St. George was en-1
twined with the tricolor of Francei
and the beautiful stars and stripes.1
Our neighbors from Japan were
nowise behind with their bunting,
and our Chinese cousins were ter
rinc in fire-crackers and gorgeous
in Chinese lanterns. The day was
ushered in by salutes of artillery,the
only qualification to my satisfaction
being,-what may perhaps be an
unjust suspicion,-and that was,
that the present price of powder
may have thrown the minister of
war into a,nft of the most stringenti
economy, for I am willing to make
an affidavit that the discharge of a
twenty-four pounder from the In
valids, sounded like the bursting
of a second class hose, and repeat
ed salutes from a columbiad on
the outside fortifications scarcely
disturbed the litt,le birds that
were cheerfully carolling on the
trees. As the day wore on heavy
masses of clouds rolled up from the
east, and the God of rain who1
seems to take especial delight ini
soaking Parisians on their holidays:
and jamborees shook over them his:
angry mantle and kept them in
a state of threatening suspense
though no rain actually fell. *The]
city presented a beautiful sight.
All along the grand boulevard of
the B3ois de Boulogne waved the
fags and streamers of every na
tion ; temporary flagstaffs had been
improvised among the -trees which
were gay with glittering pennants;
boquets of brilliant lamps peeped
out from the green foliage and
hung suspended in the air, and
electric lights festooned like strings
of pearls, stretched away for miles
and miles, looking like a fairy
bower encircling the Place de l.a
Concorde, lighting with a blaze of
glory the lovely groves of the
Champs Elysees and the grand out
lines of the Arc de Triomphe,
It may be considered remarkable
that, from the magnificent man
sicns that surround the Place de
l'Etoile, not a flag waved except
from the beautiful hotel of Madam
Mackey, the wife of the Great
Bonanza King, and from the man
sion of her mother, Madam Hunger
ford. Madam Mackey's house was
elegantly draped with Lhe fags of
all nAtious, the stars and stripes
floating alongside of the tricolor of
France; the porch was covered with
the loveliest of flowers, and the
beautiful little lady's patriotism and
taste made her tuansion one of the
marked features of the fete. Both
houses were elegantly illuminated
in the evening, and a grand recep.
tion given by Madam Hungerford
in honor of the event embraced
many of the elite of Paris.
In order that the pulic might
not be inconvenienced, the passage
of vehicles was interdicted from
many of the principal streets. No
act of the present age marks more
certainly the change that has- taken
place in France than this. A hun
dred years ago and the fellow with
the blue blouse would have had to
fly for his life, while mylord or
monsieur le duc dashed along the
street with his mounted postillons.
To-day monsieur le due takes a
back street because the boy in the
blue blouse will not allow him on
the Champs Elysees.
As the shadows of night fell the
main streets and boulevards be
came a wild surging mass of hu
man beings who seemed to spring
by millions from the very ground.
Parties of young men and women,
with little flags stuck in their hats
and bearing umbrellas hiung with <
miniature Chinese lanterns, parad
ed the streets, singing the Mar- i
seillaise and shouting lustily "Vive i
la Republique." There was a beau
tiful illumination and fire-worksi
at the Lakes, a concert of six hun-!
dred instruments and voices in the
gai'den of the Tuileries, and thei
winding up of the fete was a pro
cession of flambeaux, the lanterns<
resembling flowers, the whole being<
arranged like, a magnificent and 1
gaudy parterre of light. When the
procession had passed the crowd,
till then held back by the steady ]
lines of the soldiers, closed on their
track like a resistless torrent, made
the welkin ring with shouts of <
"~Vive la Republique," and so closed t
the grande fete of the 30th of June. 1
The Exposition grows more in
teresting every day from the grad-<
aal perfection of the display and I
she continual additions which are t
being made. Much invidious corn
aarison has been instituted between c
~he English and American exhibits,i
~omparisons which are nfair as i
~hey are unjust. In the first place i
England was awarded about five I
~imes the space of any other na- 1
~ion, and her plethoric treasury was t
>pened at once to sustain the efforts 8
>f her high commission. The UJni- (
~ed States space, on the other e
aand, was circumscribed within t
~he narrowest limits ; yet small as t
wvas the beggarly appropriation was 1I
iot sufficient for its absolute ne- I'
:essities. Besides this, there was a
iot a single person, except the e
Jommissioner General, who had (
aver had any prominent official con- a
1ection with any International Ex- t
position before. England, on the t
:ontrary, comes up to the work 3
with a corps of trained diplomats ~
mnd workers who, for this particular h
usiness, could scarcely be matched s
.n the- world. At the head of the s
British commission stands the ~
Prince of Wales who, aside from
the advantages of his exalted po
