I Will try Vegetine.
AND WAS. CURED.
DELAWARE, 0., Feb. 16,1877.
MR. 11. Rt. STEVENS:
Dear Sir,-I wish to give you this testi
mony, that you may know, and let others
know, what Vegetine has done for me.
About two years ago a small sore came on
my leg; it became a large Ulcer, so trouble
some that I consulted the doctor, but I got
no relief, growing worse from day to day,
I suffered terribly; I could not rest day or
night; I was so reduced my friends thought
I wonld never recover; I consulted a doctor
at Columbus. I followed his advice; it did
no good. I can truly say I was discouraged.
At this time I was looking over my news
paper; I saw your advertisement of Vege
tine, the "Great Blood-Purifier" for cleans
ing the blood from all impurities, curing
Humors, Ulcers, &c. I said to my family,
I will try some of the Vegetine. Before I
had used the first.bottle I began to feel bet
ter. I made up my mind I had got the right
medicine at last. I could now sleep well at.
nights. I continued taking the Vegetine.
I took thirteen bottles. My health is good.
The Ulcer is gone, and I am able to attend:
to business. I paid about four hundred dol
lars for medicine and doctors before I
bought the Vegetine. I have recommended
Vegetine to others with good success I
always keep a bottle of it in the house now.
It is a most excellent medicine.
Very respectfully yours, F, ANTHONI.
Mr. Anthoni is one of the pioneers of
Delaware. 0. He settled here in131. He
is a wealthy gentlemen, of the firm of F.
Anthoni & Sons. Mr. Anthoni is extensive
ly known, especially among the Germans.
He is well known in Cincinnati. He is re
spected by all.
IMPURE BLOOD.-In morbid conditions of
the blood are many diseases; such as salt
rheum, ring-worm, boils, carbuncles, sores,
ulcers and pimples. In this condition of the
blood try the VEGETINE, and cure tiese
affections. As a blood purifier it has no
equal. Its effects are wondertul.
DORCHESTER, MAss., June 11.
Dear Sir,-I feel it my duty to say one
word in regard to the great benefit I have
received from the use of one of the greatest
wonders of the world; it is yonr Vegetine.
I have been one of the greatest sufferers for
the last eight years that ever could be liv
ing. I do sincerely thank my God and your
Veetine for the relief I have got. The
Rheumatism has pained me to such an ex
tent, that my feet broke out in sores. For
the last three years I have not been able to
walk; now I can walk and sleep, and do
my work as well as ever I did, and I must
say I owe it all to your blood purifier, Vege
tine. MARGERY WELLS.
VEGETINE.-The great success of the VEG
ETINE as a cleanser and purifier ol the blood
is shown beyond a doubt by the great num
bers who have taken it, and received im
mediate relief, with such remarkable cures.

HENDEESON, Ky., Dec., 1877.
I have used H. R. Stevens' Vegetine, and
like it better than any medicine I have
used for purifying the blood. One bottle of
Vegetine accomplished more good than
all other medicines 1 have taken.
VEGETIN'E is composed of Roots, Barks,
and Herbs. It is very pleasant to take;
every child likes it.

THE WOULD IS WHAT WE i
I've seen some people in this life
Who always are repining,
Who never, never yet could see r
The storm-cloud's silver lining. t
There always something is amiss,
From sunrise to its setting;
That God's hand made their map of life
They seem the whilo forgetting, r
And I have seen a blessed sight C
To sin-beclouded vision, a
Some people who, where'er they be, I
Make earth seem an Elysian. t
They always see the brightest side
The direful shadows never
And keep the flower of hope in bloom V
Within their hearts forever.
The one can make the sunniest day
Seem wondroUs sad and dreary; a
The other smiles the clouds away,
And makes a dark day cheery.
This life of ours is, after all, s
About as we shall make it, c
If we can banish grief and care,
Let's haste to undertake it.
FOR THE HERALP. b
&ROADBRIl9'S PARIS LET- t
NO. 14. a
The Latin Quarter.
On the opposite side of the river, b
rom where the dark towers of I
Totre Dame frown down upon the 9
Seine, is a network of little narrow 0
streets and lanes which have re- C
mained unaltered for ages. The i1
conoclast has been at work all s
iround them; grand boulevards 1
have been laid out in their vicinity; e
3tately buildings have been erected 'I
n every side; all Paris has ex- t
perienced more or less the rage of t
public improvements; but, in the 1
section of which I speak, things re- I
main substantially as they were 0
hundreds of years ago. Many of c
the streets are so narrow that the c
sun never shines in them even at c
:igh noon. All the doors are r
lamped and bolted with iron, and E
the windows are heavily barred. In I
he narrowest streets the air is r
lamp and humid and smells musty c
and clammy, as if you were enter- y
ng a sepulcher. It is not a pleas- r
nt place to wander in after night- r
all, for most of the streets are des- I
bitute of lamps and thiis quarter is 11
the paradise of thieves and re- t
eivers of stolen goods. All the I
houses have high pointed roofs 1
with deep overhanging gables s
which, from the dingy little shops t
beneath, almost shut out the light I
of day. Gaudy looking ball dresses i
and articles of faded finery hang i
for sale at many of the doors, and g
watches, rings and breastpins, the E
proceeds of many a robbery, are ~
Iemptingly displayed in the win-'
dows. Slatternly looking women 1
and fierce looking men of no par- t
icular occupation, sit along the t
narrow sidewalks, conversing in a I
patois scarcely understood outside I
the limits of their ancient guild, i
and discussing with evident relish a
their sour wine and black bread, t
garnished with garlics and Swiss t
cheese. From many of the win- 1I
dows weak little vines and clusters i
of sickly flowers look imploringly I
up towards the sun. The casual I
visitor making his rounds in broad i
daylight is curiously scanned
and cautiously watched as if he ]
were an intruder. Historically<
the place is beyond all estimate in- 1
teres ting. Only a linile distance off
is the. Conciergerie, the terrible
prison of the Revolution, from
which so many gallant and nobJ' i
men and women were carried to<
the guillotine upon the Place de la
Concorde. Close by is St. Ger- i
main des Pres, the oldest church in
Paris. Among its crumbling tow
ers lies the dust of-more than eight i
hundred years, and beneath its7time
worn roof are the ashes of James, <
the Great Duke of Douglas, and <
Casimir, the priestly King of Po- i
land, who renounced a crown for a
cloister, and many' others whose
names will be remembered in his
tory till time shall be no more.
This may be called the picket line1
of the Latin Quarter. Within sight,
on the opposite side of the river,)
is the church of St. Germain<
l'Auxerrois, from the little belfry
of which the faal signal was givein
or the dreadful massc-cre of the
luguenots on the night of the 23d

nore respectable associations of

ne of pedestrians hold the side
~valk gradually working their way

~warms like a hive, and the grand
laning hall illuminated by myriads
f lights, is brilliant as the day. In
~he centre an orchestra of accom
lished musicians perform the most
avishing music. Four couples rush
~rom among the throng and comn
nence a series of figures much
nore expressive than polite. The
~entlemen turn summersaults and
iandsprings, and occasionally stand
an their heads, and if the ladies do
ot follow suit it is simply for lack
f ability. Certainly no desire of
personal concealment governs them,
and motives of delicacy are un
worthy of consideration. The mu
sic increases to a tempest, and the
dancers act like maniacs ; 'they
seize each other and fling them
selves violently around, arms and
legs of men and women fly over
the heads of the crowd. Shreiks,
cries and bravos rend the air, and
the exhausted dancers stagger off
to the little tables in the grove to
gather new inspiration from deep
draughto of cognac or repeated
libations of champagne. It was a
holiday night and the Closerie des
Lilas was crowded as usual, and
prominent among the most reckless
dancers on the floor was Henry
M...., from Louisiana. In person
he was tal and handsome, with
dark curling hair and dark eyes,
just the figure to shine in such a
place. His mistress, Marie la Reine,
as she was called, was one of the
most beautiful lorettes in the Latin
Quarter. His father had been a
wealthy planter in L4ouisiana be
fore t4e war, whose property had
been -lost in the rebellion. He fell
fighting for the lost cause in the
Confederate ranks at Shiloh, leav
ing a youthful widow and this boy,
The widow gathered the scattered
wreck of her fortune, and dedicated
it to the education of her son ;
whatever advantage the South
afforded she gave him, living her
self in the most pinching poverty
and denying herself even the ne
cessaries of life. Some one ad
vised her to send him. to France,
and God only knows the years of
struggle that ensued while the son
grew drunk with the riot of Paris
and the poor mother toiled on in
poverty. At last his letters failed,
and she heard from him no more,
and then came the bitterness worse
than death to think that, after all
of her sacrifice, she was forgotten.
At last the yearning of her heart
stung to its uttermost tension
could endure no more and she re
solved to cross the sea. By beg
ging and pawning the last few rem
nants of her jewelry, she gathered
enough to pay her passage and ar
rived in Paris on the night of the
Fete-Dieu. She sought her son at
his lodgings, but he had gone to
the Closerie ball. Thither she
dragged her weary frame and
sought her loved boy among the
throng. There was loud applause
from a crowd of frantic dancers
near her. A little demon, in stri
ped stockings, shrieked.and danced
with the wildest gestures, flying
her arms above her head, being en
couraged by the young man oppo
site who seemed infatuated with
her madness. When the dance was
at its heights, a wild shriek rent
the air and a poor woman, in a faded
black dress, lay dead upon the

THE STORMING OF FORT!
BY T. P. S.
"All in the fortress were at rest,
When sqdden on their ear did burst
An awful crash, as if some gust
Swept by," &c.
History records many daring acts
exhibiting the courage and invincible
determination of man. The siege of
Troy, drawn by the graphic pen of
Homer, is a standing monument of
'the hardiness and boldness, of the en
ergy and firmness of the human char
acter. The design and the storming
of Quebec by scarcely a thousand
men, who waded streams, climbed
mountains, scaled precipices, endured
toil, privation, cold and famine, until
they stood at lait upon the Plains of
Abraham, where, amidst the thunder
of cannon they marched against a well
fortified place, is one of the sublimest
sights American history furnishes. t
The storming of Stoney Point, by mad t
Anthony and his gallant band, who, I
with bayonets glittering in the flash
of the enemy's guns, swept over the
living and the dead, smote down vet
eran ranks,.rolled back the tide of op
position, rung the heavens with their
wild buzzas and planted the stars and
the stripes upon its heights, was a
brilliant achievment and worthy the
pen of the most eloquent historian.
These ate occurrences of the past
they live, they breathe, they speak and
have become classic on the historic
page. Each age, each century, is re
markable for some extraordinary event,
and sections of country acquire noto
riety from some peculiar local circum
As such the Storming of Fort Snow I
occupies a place in the past history of I
Newberry County. Long and stoutly I
it withstood siege after siege. But
alas! it fell. This fortress was situ
ated between here and Helena, and 1
was considered impregnable. It was
known in vulgar parlance as "Blue
Ruin." Here rested for months the 1
gallant troops of Maj. Van Horn. It
was washed by a branch on one side,
and the Railroad on the other. Be-.
sides these natural defences, it was
provided with batten doors and stout
window shutters, and was garrisoned1
by five women, veteran troops (each
one of whom was equal to thirteen
yoke of oxen, or an army of 300,000<
men, for history informs us that the
wife of Darius exercised an influence
over Alexander which no 800,000
men could effect,) and one man armed
with a two gallon syringe. The gar
rison were sufficient, every one will
see, to have driven back five-aye 5,
000 times the forces that assailed it.
'Twas on the evening of the 17th
September, 1858, that a force of some
thing less than a hundred men, illy
provided with arms, save a few mis
siles (not known in ancient warfare)
such as brickbats; and destitute of
heavy ordnance necessary to carry on
a regular siege, might have been seen
on their winding way. Twilight came
on, and the mild breezes of the autumn
evening stole gently through the trem
bling foliage above. The stars came
out in the sky, and the new moon dim
ly shone out in the western horizon.
All was sweet and peaceful. While
nature was thus reposing, the band of
besiegers, with their souls wrought up
to the highest pitch, stood beneath a
venerable oak in the gathering shades,
anxiously gazing in the direction of
the Fort. The besieged were wrap
ped in the arms of Morpheus. The
cackling of a goose saved the citadel
of Rome. The scratch of a thistle on
the shin of a Dane saved the Scottish
army- The barking of a fice-dog, of
about the 29th magnitude, saved the
garrison of Fort Snow from being cap
tured. They awoke to the tramp,i
tramp, tramp of armed men. Who'si
that ? came up out of the Fort. The
besiegers stopped-all hope of a sur.
prise was lost. They demanded a sur
render, but the reply was one of de
fiance. Undismayed, however, the
besiegers stood firm, closed sternlyi
around their leader, and attempted,
after the manner of the ancients, by
the use of a log as a battering ram to
take it by storm.
Fiercely they rushed, 'twas freedom invited
No shrill sounding trumpet to battle excited
The banner of virtue unfairl'd did wave o'er
The heroes rushed on, and the door fell before

filled with boiling water, tinctured

OBEYING HIS MOTHER
Harry had seen some older boys o
ly their kites from the top of the
iouses; and he thought it would d

;o he came to his aunt and said, tl
'Aunt, may I go up to the top of

"Spinning my top, mamma."
"Can't you take the baby out

"All right," shouted the boy, as b

"But I cannot spare you to-day,

"All right," said Harry, and he
went on with his breakfast.
No matter what Harry was
