Will Cure Rheumatism.
I MR. ALBERT CROOKER; the well-known
druggist and apothecary, of Springvale, Me.,
always advises every one troubled with Rheu
matism to try VEGETINE.
-Read His Statement:
SPRINGVALE, ME., Oct. 12,1878.
Mit. H. R. STEVENS:
Dear Sir-Fifteen years ago last fall I was
taken sick with rheumatism, was unable to
move until the next April. From that time
until three years ago this fall I suffered ev
erything with Rheumatism. Sometimes
there would be weeks at a time that I could
not step one step; these attacks were quite
often. I sufE:red everything that a man
could. Over three years ago last spring I
commenced taking VEGETINE and followed
it up until I had taken seven bottles; have
had no rheumatism since that time. 1 al
ways advise every one that is troubled with
rheumatism to try VEGETINE, and not sufer
1 for years as I have done. This statement is
gratuitous as far as Mr. Stevens is concerned.
Yours, etc., ALBERT CROCKER,.
Firm of A. Crocker & Co., Druggists and
Has Entirely Cured Me.
MR. H. R. STEVENS:- BOSTON, Oct., 1870.
Dear Sir-My daughter, after having a se
vere attack of Whooping Cough, was left in
a feeble state of health. Being advised by a
friend she tried the VEGETINE, and after
using a few bottles was fully restored to
I.have been a great sufferer from Rheuma
tism. I have taken several bottles of the
VEGETINE for this complaint, and am happy
to say it has entirely cured me. I have re
commended the VEGETINE to others with
the same good results. It is a great cleanser
aud purifier of the blood; it is pleasant to
'ake and I can cheerfally recouMmend it.
JAMES MORSE, 364 Athens Street.
Rheumatism is a Disease of
The blood in this disease, is found to con
tain an excess of fibrin. VEGETINE acts by
converting the blood frem its diseased condi
tion to a healthy circulation. VEGETINE
regulates the bowels which is verv important
in this complaint. One bottle of Vegetine
will give relief; but, to effect a permanent
,urp, it i4ust be taken regularly, and may
take several bottles, especially in cases of
long standing. VEGETINE is sold by all
Druggists. Try it, and your verdict will be
the same as that of thousands before you,
who say, "I never found so much relief as
- from the use of VEGE LINE," which is com
posed exclusively of Barks, Roots and Herbs.
"VEGETINE," says a Boston pbysioian,
"has no equal as a blood purifier. Hearing
of its many wonderful cures, after all other
remedies had failed, I tested the laboratory
and convinced myself of its genuine merit.
It is prepared from barks, roots and herbs,
each of which is highly effective, and they
are compounded in such a manner as to pro
duce astonishing results."
Nothing Equal to It.
SOUTH SAL.EM, MA&ss., Nov. 14. 1876.
Ms. U. R. STEV'ENs:
Dear Sir-I have been troubled with Scro
fula, Canker and Liver Complaint for three
years. Nothing ever did me any good until
- I commenced using the VEGETINE. I am
now getting along first-rate, and still using
the VEGETINE. I consider there is nothing
equgl to it for such complaints. Can hearti
ly rec'mmend it to everybody.

Grasping at shadows that dai ken my life,

Words without meaning, vows that are un
Hearts that are callous through sorrow may
Tired, so tired, of acting a part,
Wearing a smile, though weary at heart,
Grasping -it laurels to wear on my head,
Feeling too late I have thorns in their stead.
Tired, so tired, is there a rest

Unworthy to ask it, oh! say, shall I dare

BROADBRIMI'S L&ST LETTER
The bell of St. Sulpice announces
the hour of twelve; the flambeaux
are out; the thunder of cannon has I
ceased; the vivas and shouts that
rent the air throughout the day
have died away, and the thous4nas
that mingled in the grand fete are I
buried in sleep, or, wearied with i
their labors, are resting and chat- I
ting with their neighbors about the I
close of the great Exposition of i
1878. Within the Exposition it- I
self, everything is silence; but with j
to-morrow's dawn, all will be in the
wildest disorder, and the exhibitors,
who made up with the creations ofi
bheir genius one of the most splen-i
id spectacles of modern times' ]
will be scattering t.o the ends of the
arth. Since this Expnsition com- 1
menced, on May 1st, there have
been a number of splendid fetes,'
he beautiful illuLmination of the2
30th of June being one of 'the<
arked features of the century.
The Grand Prix, the review ati
ongchamps, and the splendid scene]
t the distribution of the prizes in
he Palais d'Industrie on 21st of
Otober, were all of marked events
which will long be remembered.<
The opening, too, was worthy of
especial meIi'n; but all of these
events were overshadowed and
elipsed by the close of the Ex- I
ibition yesterday, and by those 4
who were fortunate enough to wit
ess the pageant, it will not easily<
be forgotten. Although purely a I
ivic and a peaceful festival, like
everything else in France, it had a
:ecided military char'acter ; for no j
show or celebration in Paris is per
fect withotit the soldier. The priest
who once led the way on every ]
great occasion, and who claimed the
precedence of kings, was yesterday
ompelled to take a back seat,
whi]e the soldier, who was supposed<
to have been engulfed in the terri-<
ble field of Sedan, was for the time
the oracle and the observed of all]
observers,-as on the occasion of<
the opening there was a great con
entration of military power in and
about Paris;and I would here remark
that Paris is never without sol-1
diers, and nothing impresses a
foreigner sq much as the military 1
parade which meets you every
where, from the prison to the I
For many days detachments of
troops had been quietly arriving1
from different parts of the Repub
lic. TIhe grand reviews of Septem
er had given us a glimpse of the
military strength of France, and
whether the intention was to im
press the stranger, or overawe the
imperialisb and Communist, the
effect was substantially the same,
and the result was, "order reigned:
in Warsaw." In the gray of the:
November morning detachments of:
troops might be seen 'hurrying
through the streets, and taking up
thir statins at the variOna~ posts
assigned them. Large details had
been made at the residences of the
different ambassadors, and escorts
were furnished to all of the royal
and most of the distinguished visi
tors. Early in the day the streets
began to fill with people attired in
their holiday clothes, and except in
the m ost aristocratic quarters,
where the Empire still holds sway,
the houses were covered with bunt
ing, particular honor being paid to
the flags of England and the United
States. Through the portion of
Paris which lies between the Place
le Concorde and the heights of
Belleville, on almost every house
was to be seen the Union Jack or
he Stars and Stripes. The trains
>n all the various railroad lines
vhich concentrate on Paris were.
.oaded to repletion from every por
ion of the Republic. The quaint
ostumes of Alsace-Lorraine might
>e seen in the Exposition or along
he Boulevards, and sweet little
?easant girls, in high Normandy
aps and parti-colored petticoats,
aurned the heads of the studerts in
he Latin quarter, and caused a
lutter even among the antiquated
>eaux, who line the evening prome
iade along the Champs Elysee.
'he everlasting 'blue blouse was
veiywhere. Like the soldier, it
vas omnipresent, and the only
juestion which was the power be
iind the throne; and the- day is 1
>erhaps not far distant when this 1
lescendant of the sans culotte him- i
ielf may settle the question in a i
nanner which will bring back the 1
nemory of that terrible and blQody
-eign, the foot prints of which are
till to be traced in every portion
4 the day advanced the streets
>egan to fill with vehicles rushing
ip toward the Exposition. Every
hing on wheels in Paris was en
aged, and by eleven o'clock not
6 cab or a carriage was to be en
raged for love or money. By noon
he splendid equipages of the dif
erent amnbassadors began to arrive,
,wo of the most magnificent and
mposing being those of the Span
shi and Italian ministers. The
Prussian, Austrian, and German
ambassadors had also exceedingly
andsome liveries and turnouts,
nd in addition to these there were
~ounts, dukez, an<d prince, Qt.t Qf
mrdber, mingled with a.multitude
>f distinguished military officers,
who had been specially invited from
he different nationalities of Europe.
or men distinguished in science
and art there seemed to have been
nade no special provision, and
vandering through the surging
rowd might be seen poets, painters
and sculptors, whose names are
mown throughout the world. The
hunder of guns and the clatter of
ioofs announced the arrival,.of the
Irand Marechal President, and as
>n the occasion of the opening, the
~nthusiasm, which had been rising
o fever heat, seemed suddenly to
iave died away, and a few faint
ivas were his sol anid only greet
ng. The vast multitude which.
vas scattered over the grounds
~nd through the great halls of the
~xposition, now swept like a re
istless torrent over the Seine, and
oward the grand stand. The cere-1
nony was almost as brief as the
>pening, and after a few words of
ongratulation on the successful re
init, the President announced the
Exposition closed. The enthusiasm
>f the people, which up to this mo-1
nent appeared to have been sup
>ressed, suddenly burst all bounds ;
bnd one of the wildest scenes ensued
hat it has ever been my lot to wit
iess. Cries, shouts, vivas, and
iurrahs rent the air, and every
nan and woman shook hands with
is or her next neighbor, seeming
:o regard him in the light of a
warm personal friend. The con
agion even caught the stoical
Dhinese Minister, and he extended I
is digits to a corporal of marines,
ssuring him of his highest person -
1 regard. All through the after
aoon the streets were crowded, and
i~t night there was a general illumi
ation, ending with a grand parade.
[t will probably be some years. be
ore France will try to hold another
Exposition, for although the affair
is called a success, it will take
many miflions of fance to offset the
wrong side of the balance sheet.
!ei from the ordeal (and itbas'
been a trying one), the Republi<
has come out with honor. Here ani
there some wandering tourist ma
have been defrauded of a few franci
by his landlord, or some lady ii
her purchases of laces and shawls
on which she never intended to pa3
duty, may have been swindled
by a shop keeper,-but the Expo
sition leaves behind it permaneni
benefits and pleasant memories
which will be a lasting benefits and
to the world. These gathering havE
brought the different nations of thE
earth into a closer family communior
awakening the hope that ere many
years shall have passed away,the uni
versal fatherhood and the universal
brotherhood shall be acknowledged
by all the children of men.
And so ends my task, commenc
ng nearly seven months ago, and
followed unremittingly, with thE
,xception of the short respite whick
[ allowed myself during the sam
mer. I trust I have fulfilled my
task to the satisfaction of my
readers. I ask no other reward,

WORSE THAN BAD WEATH. I
Dr. Swicke ley was passing along
Front street, one of the hottest
days of the week, when he noticed c
a large crowd gathered in front of
a tenement house a short distance 9
ahead. The doctor hurried for
ward, and elbowing his way
through the crowd, found a man
lying prostrate on the sidewalk.
"PreL; back, good people, press
back," said' the kind-hearted doe
tor, 'and give the man air. I am
a physician, and will bring-him
around presently. I see how it is,
the man is sunstruck. This beat
is terrific, and the people will
soon die like sheep, if the weather

A blear-eyed woman with a

A HoRsE's SENsE OF' SMErE.-An s&
African pony, unlike Job's war
hoitse, "smelleth" not "the battle
afar off," but he will smell a be
poisonous snake at a sufficient dis- ce
tance to avoid him. An English at
gentleman was leading his pony
one day in South Africa, when he
saw his Kaffir servant suddenly wi
jump on one side. Knowing that pa
it was a snake that had alarmed se
him, the gentle man dropped the
reius and went forward to kill it.
It was a puff-adder, the reptile iti
which it is thought, Cleopatra th
used to Commit suicide. Killing ay
it with a stone, he examined its
glands and found them filled with
poison. On returning to the ponye
and advancing his hand to take D
the reins, the horse shied back in
great alarm. For several minutes
he would not allow his master to
approach. Some of the odor of c'
the adder had attached itself to
the gentleman's hands, and the bi
cautious animal, being warned by i
his sense of smell, was afraid that
there was danger even in his
master's touch. '(he horse's nose hi
