And go to the press and advertise.

A KENTUCKY ROMANCE.
The Love of Two Urothete and 'we tslter .
With as Unexpected Dluemecuto the
[From the Falmouth (Ky.) laidependent.) a
In a certain part of our county there of
lived a family, in which there are two o
brothers just entering upon the prime of tit
youthful manhood ; a short distance from str
them-in 'fact, in the same neighbor. thu
hood-there lived another family in th
which there are two sisters also in the
prime of maidenhood ; beautiful, fascin
ating and attractive. Those young iu
)Cope being near neighbors, and coming dog
in contact with each other often, almost beA
naturally it would scom, fell in love with
each other, the elder brother with one tha
of the sisters and the younger with the
other. All went smoothly for a time, vat
aintd theso young people enjoyed them
telves, and dreamed bright dreams of die
the future, and no doubt in imagination iA
constructed fairy palaces of love, and
gardlens, like Paradise, which should be
only filled with beautiful flowers and1l
fruits of happiness (and unalloyed enjoy
ment Then, as a matter of course, the whi1
<question of marrying arose, which nt4 t
he referred to the parents of the young
ladies for approval. The eldes4 brother -tl
had no difliculty in obtaiinig their con
rent to his marrying the young lady. and ra
the wedding (lay was fixed upon. Then ,
the young brother went to the parents ,,
and mado known his attuelmont for the "
other rister and their nutiual desireo to su
"splice and travel the road of life to- lie
get 1er." But the old folks were decidedly n
onposed to having more thaii one of their a
'Iirls marry into "that family, and
plainly informed him that if he wanted
a wife lie mu11st go elsewhere to get her, in
intlimating that lie should desistl paying i" t
further attention to the young lady in a
qu)testion. Btt the young mnlu1 was' de- 'I.
termined that if his brotlier married.ole
of the girls he would marry the other. '
So he went to the young ''lady of his tr
love," and told her the cireunstantces of
the situation, anld desired hter, if she 1)14
loved him, to prove her love hy rnntinl g
off with him. To this sie agreed, andcl '
the night was fixed 1pon1 when thel
should carry out the mutual ngreement.
But now comes the stramaest part. of the
story. The two young ladie reseimblcd
each other very mtucht in looks, voice, t
etc., and by some strange freak, when the o1
Iliglt of the clopement came mald ii t
young man went to the appointed place V
of meeting, lie found a woilla there
whom Ihle thought was the right one, but
h0 was not. Unconscious of this, how
ever, he took her to the place were the 'l
laarriage cerenony was to ber p--rformled 211
before he found out that he was with tlh <a
wrong girl. Most wonderful to relate, ""
lie thought that after he had gone to all I
this troulle lie would get married any
way, so lie asked her if she would havec )
hitm, and she, in order to carry out lh< ti
joke, said she 'w(onlhi, and they wer< of
married then and thaere. Tt. appoars thtat :
she had overheard himt naking arrange
mnllts to elop with her ister, and, S-a
knowing the place of meeting, deter
mined to go there ahead of her and thus
fool the young nlan, for whom she en
tertained a secret liking, although the
w1a; eng;agced1 o beo mtarried to hli,; brotlher. jit
One infermant also states that after they t)(
b:ad lived t ogetlher for some tile th'e wI
eler brother, determining to make tit e
mlost of the situtation, took utnto liimsel f l
the other sister.

A Sailor's Idea of Death.
No, no, ye can't liken it to your tow
a parting and sending ye adrift.
ath's a haven, man, life's the ocean
e1 ye get the t msing. I )eat II's
ooth water and good holding ground,
ero there's nothing to do bit let go
anchor and turn in. * * * Tle
rdest part of death is being alone.
icnds may be crying around ye, and
ling your hands, but still ye're alone.
t my notion is, the A'mighity's too
aid to let a man drift out (of this worl
e a derelict, no0 one0 aboard. And so),
we can't sip immani friends for tIe
voyage, what mnore natural thain that
A'mighty should puit an angel aboand
a sort of pilot to keep us compainy
.1 cheer us up, andtinavigaite us truly'?
nothing of that kind takes place, how
ye account for men dying smiling, as
hiey'dl been having a'plesant talk with
hipmatc up to the last moment. -A

Hm Mon's Advice.
I have been troub!d for over twelvo years
tith a weakness of the kidneys and bladder,
hieh the doctors said was diabetes. I could
ut at times stand up, and would have to
ontuinally use the urinal bollh day and night
ith intense pains in mg back and Hido.3
hiro was brio' dust deposits in my water;
ou!d not rest %'ol or lio ersily in bodl in any
1.ture. I was at that tine eimpl'>yed by the
inino Central Railroad, and had to give up
ork for a time. Fearing that it would sooner
r later tlui to that dreaded Bright's di-en-o,
etlled in my soi in I ewiston, who is in the
rug business, and after consulting with him
a to miy ea=e, ho advised me to nqe llmt's
semed.v. as ho know of so maniy successful
-ures that it had made in Lewiston and
cinity. I at once commenced using, it, and
>egan to improve. I h d less pain in my
ick and silos, my water was piBsed naturlhly
vith less color and no pain, and after utin I
everal botl'0 found that my pains wore all
uoo and the weakness of the kidneys and
('nd ler were cured, and I have i.o trouble
ithi them now, an I can attend to my blsi
iess: nnd for one of my years I Pin enjoying
-ot.a health, and thanks to Hunt's llemedy
or it, and I consider it a duty and pleasure
o roomnild so good a ndicino as Hlurt's
eredy, and I have taken pains to recomn
nond it to others in this vicinity.
You are at liberty to pnb'ih is nekrowl
dniment, hoping it may h-e the means of
ielpinur sntTerin.t hulmanity.
