Dear Sir-About ten years ago mly health
failed through the dleicting ctleets of dys
pepsia: nearly a y-ear later I was attacked
by tvuhoid fever in its worst form. It set
led ii my back, and took the form of a large
leep-seated abscess. which was lifteen
111on1ths in gathering. I had two surgical
operations by the best slill in the State, but
received no permanent cure. I suafered
reat pain at times. and was constantly
weakened by a proliuse discharge. I also
lost sma! pieces of bone it ditiYereit times.
Matters ri-an on thus about seven years.
till May, 1874. wh-n a friend recommended
ine to go to your oflice, and talk with you of
the virtue of VEGETINE. I di'l so, an- by
your kindness passed through your iiiau
IaCtory. noting the ingredients. &c., by
whieh vour remetdy is produceu.
Bv what I saw ~and heard I gained some
CoIIidCneC in VEGETINE.
I coiicied taking it soon after, but felt
vorse from its eilects; still I persevered,
ain soon felt, it was beneitting ine in other
-espects. Yet I did not see the results I
desired till I had taken it faithfully for a lit
tl more than a NIar, when the (i1LicUlty in
he back was cur-ed; andi for nine months I
ave enjoyed the best of health.
I have in that time gained twenty-five
ounds of tiesh, being heavier than cever be
ore in nily lile, and I was never more able
o peformn labor than now.
DIuring the past few weeks I had a scrofu
us swelling as large as my list gather on
amother part of my body.
I took VEGETINE faithfully, and it removed
it level with the surface in a month. I think
shonld have been eared of my main trou
!e sooner if 1 taken larger doses, afte r
aving become acecoustomed to its elets.
Let your patrons troubled with serofula
r kidney disease understand that it lakes
time to cure chronic diseases; and, if they
ill pattienltly take VEGETrINE, it will- in my
ugement, cure themi.
With great obligations I am

There were ninety and nine that safely lay
In fhe shelter of the fbid,
But one was out on the hiPs away,
Far off from the gates of gold,
Awvay on the mountains wId and bare,
Away from the shepherd's care.
"Lord, thou hast here thy ninety and nine;
Are they not enough for thee ?"
But the shepherd made an answer, "This of
Has wandered away from me;
And altho' the road ba rough and steep,
I go to the desert to find iny sheep."
But none of the ransoned ever knew
How dcep were the waters crossed;
Nor how dark was the night that the Lord
Ere !,-e 1bmnd his sheep that was lost.
Out in ihe desert ble heard its cry
Sick and helpless and ready to ie.
"Lord, wheuce are those blood-diops all the
That mark out the mountains track!"
"They were slied for one who had ,one
Ere the slepherd could bring him back."

And tli angels echoed around the throne

I bad been "doing" the continent
in a rambling way and had stop
ped for a few days at Venice.
Here 1 met my old college
chum, Dick Glover.
The latter had become a famous
doetor within the last f,ew years.
Having at last married a rich
and handsome young widow, he
had concluded to take a short
period of relaxation, and hence his
presence in this distant clinic.
Ot course he was overjoyed to
see me, and having been there
long enough to know something
f the place, he volunteered to
show me around.
"B3y Geo rge !" I exclaimed, sud
dcn ly, as we stopped before the
piazza San :Mairco. "There's as
andsome a picture as I ever saw.
A young and most beautiful
irl stood before us, engaged in
feeding the pigeons.
The birds were marvelously
ame, and approached her fear
essly, even lighting on her hands.
"Did you ever see a more at
tactive sight !" I asked my friend,
nthusiastically, as we passed on.
"Rum! 1 don't know," was the
ather doubtful reply. "Rumor.
as been busy' about that lady's
ame of late."
"In what way ?" I asked in
ignantly. "I never saw a sweet
er face in all my life."
"Well, I'll tell you the story as
ear as I've heard it. The wo
an is Countess Ardotti. IIer

she wedded him for his wealth.

"Your legal irstinc. is wrong"

doctor's wife. -The poniard with

it once to the police officials. I
found them in perplexity, some of
them believing in the innocence of'
the countess, and the rest firmlyv
believing ber to be guilty. I had
provided myself with a letter of
introduction from the doctor, and
was politely received.
Stating that I was a lawyer by

mysteries, I offered my services in
the present case. I was accepted
without hesitation, save by onej
member of the board, who was
