ROCK MB TO SLEEP.-^Sohio time
ago, a claim to tho authorship of
. ?Rook Me to Sleop, " * plaintive
poem, by "Florene* Percy,'; was
made by a plagiarist named Ball,
who lives somewhero in EfWw Jersey,
and writes very bad verse?. To this
person, Mark Twain addressed the'
following apostrophe: ,rBackwardr
3seed backward, oh, Ball, in your
ight; make not an ass of yonrself
(inst for to-night;) pull tho few silver
threads out of your hair; fill up and
varnish those farrows of caro-care
that was born of attempting fame's
steep, which you couldn't ' climb,
Ball, whom none.rooked to sleep;
oh, Bally, come back from tho echo?
ing shore; cease for a season the
publie to bore, with your infamous
rhymes and stupid complaint, for
you know\you are claiming to bo
what you ain't. Oh, drivel no more
don't shuffle, don't weep-hang up
you (r) lyre,, Ball, I'll rook you to

The lifo of the flesh is puro blood. Upon
this theory alone the inventor of the
Queen's Delight establishes the great hy?
gienic law, without pure blood no flesh is
free from disease. Tho Palo and Shrunken
Forms, Yellow Faces, Weak Stomachs,
Diseased Livers, Crippled Bheumatics,
Nervous Hypochondriacs, Dyspeptic Vic?
tims of Headache, so common in this
country, is owing entirely to the humors
of the blood. Very many other diseases
may bo traced to bad blood, Scrofula or
King's Evil, Erysipelas, Exauthema or
Elovuro, a Rash or Emption on females,
Blotches, Tetter, Goitre or Swelled Neck,
Syphilis and Syphilitic Sores, Strnmous
Ulcers, Ac These cannot bo cored with?

romedy. There is no othor blood purifier
that will accomplish such positive and ex?
traordinary cuica as iieinitsirs Queen's
Delight. Yon may tako a barrel of extract
Sarsaparilla, and still you will not be
cured; and. as a proof of it, look around
and you will observe tho country, through?
out its length and breadth, is flooded with
compound Sarsaparillas, extracts and
syrups, claiming to be blood purifiers, and
yet we see to-day moro evidence of im?
purity of the blood than over. Why is
this ? Simply because t heno extracts and
Sarsaparillas are worthless medicines.
Ask for Heinitsh'B Quoon's Dolight. Thin
is not the Extract of Btellingia or Queen'a
Delight, nor is it a Compound Syrup of
Queen's Delight, or Sarsaparilla and
Queen's Delight, but simply Heinitsh's
Queen's Delight is the trade mark. Ask
for this, if you want to bo cured, and see
