last week. He had been indicted fot
the fraudulont funding of coupons, by
Sthe Investigating Comr mitte , and
was hiding in the North to escape ar
rest. He was one of Parker's bondse
men, and it had been discovered juist
before his death that ho had on de
posit in the Carolina National Bank,
the sum of 620.800, wvhich was attach"
ed as soon as the discovery was made.
It is stated that considerable money
was found amongst his effects in Bal
timore after his death, and Capt S.
Dibbie. a member of the Committee,
left immediately on hearing of the
tact, for Battimore, to look alter the
State's interest. Owens was a native
of Laurens County, and skulked out
of the late war as long as he could, but
when forced to go, by conscription,
deserted the first oppo.rtunity, and
went over to the enemy. Alter the
war ensed he joined the Radical par
ty, and wan one of its most incendiary
member. upto his death. lie was to
tally devoid of honor and shared in all

SAFE AND SURE.
Ma. H. R. BTRvEs; In 1872 your Vzon
TINE was recommended to moe, and yielding
to the persuasions of a friend, I eonsented to
try it. At the time I was suffering from
general debility and nervous prostration, so
perinduced by overwork and irregular bab
its. Its wonderful strengthening and cura
tive properties seemed to affect my debilitated
system from the first dose, and under its
pepistent use I rapidly recovered. gaining
more than health and good feeling. Since
then I have not hesitated to give VEGETINE
my mosi unqualified indorsement as being a
safe, sure and powerful agent in promoting
health and restoring the wasted systeme to
new life and energy. VEETINE is the only
medicine I use, and as long as I live I never
expect to find a better. Yourt truly,

qualities of VEGETINE as a iliorough cleanser
and purifier of the blood:
HYDE9 PARK, Mass., Feb. 15, 1876.
Mr. H. R. STEVENs-Dear Sir: About ten
years ago my health failed through the de
pleting effects of dyspepsia; nearly a year
later I was attacked by typhoid fever in its
worst form, it settled in my back and took
the form of a large deep seated abscess, which
was fifteen months in gathering. I had two
surgical operations by the best skill in the
State, but received no permanent cure. I suf,
fered great pain at times, and was constantly
weakened by a profuse discharge. I also
lost small pieces of bone at different times.
Matters ran on thus about seven years, till
May, 1874, when a friend recommended me
to go to your office and talk with you of the
virtue of VEOI:viNE.
By what I saw and heard I gained some
confidence in VEG1.TE NE.
I commenced iking it soon after, but felt
worse from its eftects; still I persevered andi
soon felt it was benefiting me in other re -
pects. Yet. I did not see the results I dlesired,
till I had taken it faithfully for little more
than a year, when the difficulty in the back
was cured, and for nine months I have en
joyed the best of health.*
I have in that time gained 25 pounds of
flesh, being heavier than ever before in my
life, and I was never more able to perform
labor tihan now. During the past few weeks
I had a scrofulous swelling as large as my
fist gather on another part pf my body. I
took VEGETINE faithfully andi it. removed it
level with the surface in a month. I think I
should have beeu cured of my main trouble
sooner iflIhad taken larger doses, after hav
ing become accustomed to3it.s effects.
Let your patrons troubted with scrofula or
kidney disease understand that it takes time
to cure chronic diseases, and if they will
patiently take VEGETINE, it will, in my judg
ment, cure them. With great obligations I
am, yours very truly,
