SPRINGVALE, ME., Oct. 12, 1878.
Mn. B. R. STLVENS:
Dear Sir-Fifteen years ago last fall I was
taken sick with rheumatism, was unable to
move aitil the next April. From that tune
until three years ago tLis fall I suffered ev
erything with Rheumatism. Sometimes
there wouid b weeks at a time that I could
not step one step; these attacks were quite
often. I saffered everything that a ian
could. Over three years ago last spring I
.mnenced taking VEGETINE and followed
it up until I had taken seven bottles; have
;ad no rheumatism siIce that time. 1 al
-ways advise every one that is troubled with
rheumatism to try VEGETINE, and notsuffer
br years as I have done. This statement i.
grainious as far as Mr. Stevens is concerned.

MR. 1. R. STEvENS:
Dear Sir--My daughter, after having a se
vere attck of Whooping Cough, was left in
a feeble state of healtil. Being advised by a
friend slie tried the VEGETINE, and after
using a 'ew bottles was fully restored to
I have been a great sufferer from RhlICuma
tism. I have taken several bottles of the
VEGETINE for this complaint, and am happy
to suy it has entirel/eured me. I have re
commended the VEGETINE to others with
the same aood results. It is a great cleanser
and purifier of the blood; it is pleasant to
tske and I can cheerfully recommend it.
JAMES MORSE, 3G4 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 from its diseaed condi
tion to a healthy circulation. VEGETINE
regulates the bowels which is very important
in this complaint. One bottle of Vegetine
will give relief; but, to effect a permanent
cure, it must be taken regularly, and may
take several bottles, especially in cases of
long standing. VEGETINE is sold by all
I Druggists. Try it, and your verdict will he
the same as that of thousands before y;u,
who sav "I never found so much reiief as
from the use of VEGE FINE," which is com
posed exclusively of Barks, Roots and Herbs.
"VEGETINE," says a Boston physician,
"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 astoni6hing results."

Dear Sir-I have been troubled with Scro

Aother, the grass upon your grave
Has grown and wavvd for many a year;
While, out on time's triumphant wave,
Le flowers smile which heaven gave
To deck with cherished love your bier.
At first my eyes were wet with grief,
Which flowed through sorrow's fount way;
But soon my soul found glad relief,
And glistened like the forest leaf
When the sun lights up a rainy day.
But now the pang that once was gloom
Beams bright as sunshine on the sky;
I look with mildness on thy tomb,
Which once I thought was horror's doom
"That death was death alone to die."
But looking down the Yale of time,
Through wisdom's brigliter ripening shade,
I see from off this sphere of crime
Unto the angel's sunny clime,
The happier transfer God has made.
I see t4e years of mortal care
Melt in Etermity's briglit gleam;
That some are too good and fair
For this wide valley of desp-dr,
Or even mortal's faiest dream.
I see the wisdom of a God
Is greater far than any other;
The dream is real that you have dreamed,
The harvest rich that you have gicaned
Patient, waiting, ungel mother.
THE DOTOR'S PRESCRIPTION.
BY NILML t- Stf.Ap
Lilian Haines was very low with
brain fever-the result of over
tasking her mental faculties in order
to become a brilliant stpw in the
literary circle. Her condition had
baffled the skill of the country doc
tor, and Mrs. Haines, her vigilant
mother, almost despairing, had
summoned her husband to the bed
side for the purpose of asking his
advice concerning what must be
"I'll tell you what I'm going to
do" said Mrs. Haines, who seemed
animated by a new hope. "I will
send to town for a physician."
"Do! immediately !"
Mr. Haines went to dispatch a
servant for' a physician at Peltville ;
and, on returning, said:
"My opinion of old Dr. Boyle is
that he does not know as much as
he pretends. What is your opin
ion, Ma, ehi?"
"Pretty much the same as yours,"
answered his wife, whom he called
The doctor came. He was a
young man-far too young for sucb
a case ; but, as he said, he was an
experienced physician-his father
before him havlng the same pro
fession. Dr. Mayne was by no
means a handsome man ; on the
contrary, he was simply ugly ; but
then, he had a good heart, and
"handsome is as handsome does,"
was his maxim.
"How is she, doctor ?" inquired
the anxious parents, after she was
"Her case is not hopeless, al
though she is, indeed, very low,"
returned the physician.
Mayne wrote a prescription, gave
orders to the attendants, and left
' She is a perfect fairy ! more
she is an angel !" said Dr. MaynE
to himself as he rode towards the
town. "With heaven's aid L shall
restore her health, and then
pshaw ! she cannot be as romanti<
as I think. Had I an Apollo's face
I might stand some chance. SomE
handsome, brainless fop will carr:

continued, putting spurs to his
shorse to gallop the thoughts o
-Lilian Haines awvay.
But the thoughts of her wer<

first time in his life, Mayne foun'

which was indignantly denied and
proof demanded. He wasn't ready
with his testimony, and the case
was dismissed for lack of evidence.
But his suspicions increa&ed, and
he ordered a secret investigation.
and appointed himself chairman
of the committee, with power to
send for persons and papers. He
laid his plans with care, and the
next morning he followed his
maid-servant down stairs at a
careful and respectful distance,
and hid himself near the kitchen
door, where he could not see or be
seen, while he could hear very
distinctly whatever was said or
done. The rustle of paper and the
rattle of dry lightwood was sue
ceeded by hasty steps toward t he
closet in the cellar way. Then he
heard the gurgling ot a liquid, as
though it was bubbling out of a
small tin spout. He heard the can
set down and t6en the scrape of a
"H'n," he heard the maid-ser
vant remark. Then another match
snapped and a barely audible fizzle
succeeded. Grimly smiled the
silent man by the outer door.
"Hl'm," remarked the maid-ser
vant, a little petulantly. Another
match snapped and blazed up.
Another sound as of sizzling.
The smile on the face of the man
deepened into a grin.

the kitchen and there was heard
the sound of more pouring on the
light wood. Another match and

the queen of the range, evidently
anxious to obtain testimony cor

man sitting outside the door
throttled himself with both hands
and softly pounded the ground
with his heels. Something evi
dently excited him, and when the
next match snap)ped he caught

HINTs FOR DOvERS.-In the first
place,' it is an imposition on any
well bred girl to keep her up
later than ha'--.past 10 o'clock,
when you have the opportunity of
seeing hcr often. If you always
leave her with the wish in her
beart that you bad staid longer,
you gain so mnch. Never run the
risk of wearying her with your
presence. Be just as earnest and
straightforward as in your hon
orable dealing with men. im
press your friends with the worth
iness and seriousness of your
love, so that vulgar and senseless
bantering will appear to them as
such. Love is i eligion-the sa
premesL happiness; wear it mani
fully and proudly, but holily.
Woo a woman bravely. If there
is anything humiliating ~to a wo
man, it is to have a lover whora
she wishes to honor, weak and
vapid, ever yielding and half
afraid of her. She longs to tell
- him to "act like a man !" The
man who conceals or denies l.is
love for fear of being laughed
at, is a coward. A love that has
