THE DAILY ffEWS.
At the Fair.
Lord Lovel he called for his milk-whit: steed.
And he rode away to the nur,
* And a maiden he found, who was sore in need,
A maiden with golden hair.
So soon as the lady Lord Level espied,
She "went for him" then aad there,
"New give ef thy gold, Lerd Lovel," she cried ;
"Thy reward be the orphan's prayer."
-1 will give thee geld-not for orphan's prayer,
For of that I take no heed.
Sut for a curl of thy golden nair.
If it is thine indeed."
"It surely ie mi BO, "the damsel said,
"Lord Loi el, I truly swear;"
So it was-bot it didn't grow on her head;
The hair-dresser placed it there.
Xord Lovel gave gold for that lovely curl,
Much more than he would tell.
And the maiden's smile showed her teeth of pearl
As she said, "I hive sold him welL"
How Stock Gambling is Conducted in
[From the New York Mercantile Journal.]
"What are "Puts?" asked a greenhorn of a
Tnim in Wall-street. Well, replied the latter,
- if I give yon a certain sam, say ten dollars, on
condition that you allow me at any time I
please, within a certain period, say three
months from to-day, to give jon a cowhiding,
I have bought and yon have sold what in stock
exchange parlance means "a put." When yon
get the biding yon would bo tho man put upon,
and I would be the putter.
Seriously, asked our friend the greenhorn,
what ie meant by selling puts of gold, or puts
Fell, said the other, I w?l ti y to explaiD.
Gold is selling to-day, August 1, at 150; I think
it will go much lower; you tb ink quite other?
wise; leay I will give you $500 if you will al?
low me to put $20,000 of gold on you at any
time within the next six months at 130. if
*rou accept my offer I pay the $500 cash down,
and you stand to he "put on" alias "shot at,"
during the next six months, If gold goes
down to 1201 buy $20,000, which I car make
you take from me at 130 within the specified
?time, and, if I do so, J. make $3500 by the ope?
ration; but I may buy at 120 is three months;
801 have plenty of time to look about me,
and if the market ?oes up again to 150 before
aha expiration of the six months, I Bell at that
figure and make $5500 set by the operation.
Then, of course, I take more notice of you.
Ton have got your $500 aad ne gold put upon
In that case, said the greenhorn, I have the
beet of the bargain. 1 have made the $500
without any risk, while, if gold had net gone
below $150 you would have lost the $500.
But suppose, said the knowing one, that
when you saw gold going down with a rna,
you had sold $20,000 at $125, to protect your?
self against the right I had to put it on you at
$180, where weald you have been when the
gold had risen to $150, and you found yourself
Mund to deliver $20,000 at $1 25, which you
had "sold short" in consequence of having
sold me that "put?" Any way, you see I
-could only have lost $500, but you could not
liare told what your loss might bare been.
^Suppose, again, said our Wall-street man,
thai J buy from you to-day (August 1) a put of
Eries at 68, which I think much beyond their
rame, giving you $5000 for allowing me to put
.ne thousand shares of said stock upon you at
65 within three months. I wait until it goes
down to S5, afid then IW the Ohe thoueanr? ?
shares which I can make yea take from me at
65; then if the market does net rally beibre ihz
expiration of three months, I put it on you as
per contract, and make $30,000 by the opera- :
rion, less the $5000 paid for the put, making
the net gain to me, and loss to you, $25,000 as .
the result of such a gambling transaction.
If you want to understand the matter expe?
rimentally, go and ask my friend Freecom, the .
-broker, to sell "a put" fer you; thou you will
find out all about it from actual experience. ;
If, however, you will be guided by me, I will i

RADWA?H RENOVATING RESOLVENT in curmg
the worst lonna of Scrofulous, Syphilold, Chronic

from the Uterus and Urethra, L/ucorrhoa, Bloody
Urine, and other unhealthy and weakening dis?
charges;-and inquire wherein thc SARSAPARIL
LIAN used in the Renovating Resolvent differs trom
ordinary Sarsaparillas ! Sarsiparillian is tho only
principle in sarsaparilla that possesses euraiivi
properties; all other parts of tho root are inert and
useless. One ounce of the extract obtained under
Dr. Radway'suew process tor extracting the curative
properties from vegetable substances, contains more
of tho true principio of cure than twenty pounds ol
the ordinary roots.
SARSAPARILLA AN is only one ortho ingredients
that torcas this truly wonderful medicine; audit is
tho only compensating remedy that communicates
its purifying, cleans! ctr and reinvigorating proper?
ties through the BLOOD, SWEAT, URINE, and
other secretions, securing a harmonious functional
action of every depraved organ aud gland in tho sys?
tem. If the blood is corrupt, the Besolvout will
make it pure. If the Lungs are ulcerated and sore,
secreting thick phlegm and pr ure le Dt matter, thc
Resolvent will loosen this deposit and repair the
wasting lung with som,d and healthy material, ll
the Skin ls covered with pimples, spots, pustulce,
sores, ulcers, fcc, the Resolvent will quickly reniova

Glands aro ulcerated, tho Resolvent will euro those

ing only exclusivo properties, aro hurtful, as they
increase thc functional secretions ol on organ by
suspending tho constituent secretions ol others';
hence, a compensating remedy like the Resolvent li
thc only weans of a permanent cure.

MY OWN CASE.
On Saturday night, thc 19th, I was violently seized
with Congestion ol' the Lungs, l'or a Tew days pre?
vious I felt a dull pain over my lett lung, with
occasional coughs, but being actively cngiged, paid
no attention to it. When seized, tho pain was so
piercing, cutting and excruciating, that every breath
drawn was like a red hot kiiile etittiug my lung. Be?
ing absent ti om home, I sent out for three bottles ol
RADWAY'S RELIEF, applied the entire lot to my
lung:?, back, shoulders, fcc, und m a few moments
got up connter-irritation. Respirations were easy,
and, as the skin boca-m- reddened, all pain ceased,
lu half au hour I was free from pam, nil all signs
of Congestion, Infi .mutation, kc, go-i This is au
importaut cure. It is well that o cry ono should
know how to use thin remedy in .ere attacks. 'Hie
same rule holds good in cases of Inflammation o!
the Loins, Bowels, Kidney > and Stomach. Apply
Ibo RELIEF freely; foik .c skm with it. It will
instantly secure the withdrawal of the inflammation
to tho surface, aud . orsous now suffering may, m
minne MINUTES, bc ?rec from pam.
In cases where inflammation has existed for a
length of time, in addition to the Rt'LIKF, tako six
ol RADWAY'S PILLS. Powder Ihcui. in half an
hour, iu most cases, they will operate. If not, re?
peat the dose. In one or "two hours at the furthest
th>-y will operate, and the patient soon get well, in
Bilious, Typhoid, Fever and Ague, this treatment is
sure to cure. Let it be tried.
