The Scent of the Buzzard.
"While digging sweet potatoes I noticed
a very luxurious growth of vines cover
ing a small mound in the field, and in
quiry revealed the fact that a horse and
cow had been buried there some
years before. Just then nothing im
pressed me in that connection save the
immensity of the potatoes which we
found overlying these two graves, but
in the afternoon and during the follow-
inn1 fln-ir "Kurfzif flc clinrlrnvAiT tlin "ffirm Tar
zard after buzzard I traced as they ap
peared in various portions of the sky
with half-folded wings, reminding me of
mute aerial hounds, "coming down the
scent, their course as swift, silent, and
undeviatin as an arrow's. It
, o . .
; strangely interesting spectacle to behold
them swoop within a few feet of the
horse-hades, and rise again with slow,
reluctant flaps, indicative of disappoint
ment, then return to deliberately "beat"
and "quarter" the ground, aerially
speaking, with all the tact and persever
ing sagacity of their canine compeers:
in fact, the performance was suggestive
of a fox-hunt, in which Reynard s place
was represented by the dead bodies,
"earthed" in this case, however, for
other than Reynard's reasons. One of
the vultures in particular showed
an extreme faith in the guidance
of its smelling powers by alight
ing without demur on the fence half
a dozen paces from the centre of attrac
tion, where, after some time of manifest
uneasiness and uncouth posturing, it
was joined by a few of its more dubious
companions. This visitation of uncanny
birds continued long after, though I
never saw so many as at lirst when the
crop was plowed out, this disturbance
probably releasing, for a time the pent
up odors. I could detect no taint in the
atmosphere of the place even while
working in the freshly plowed ground,
yet hundreds of buzzards assembled
from far and near, and with unerring
accuracy pointed out the place of buriid
with overshadowing wiugs. In conse
quence of these observations the theory
that the vulture family are enabled to
detect the existence of a dead body by
scent, unassisted by any of the remaining
senses, and this too, at a great distance,
and when such carcass had lain deep
under the ground for several yearsj was
to me-satisfactorily proved. Gosse, as
I before stated, gives an instance con
firmatory to the one just related, justly
attributing to the same species of
vulture this wondrous faculty of track
ing its prey from afar. It was observed
in Jamaica: "A poor German immi
grant, who lived alone in a detached
cottage in this town, rose from his bed
after a few days' confinement by fever
to purchase in the market some fresh
meat for a little soup. Before he could
prepare the several ingredients of herbs
and roots, and put his meat in water for
the preparation of Jus pottage, the
paroxysm of his fever had returned, and
he laid himself on his bed exhausted.
Two days elasped in this state of helpless
ness and inanimation, by which time the
mass of meat and pot herbs had putre
fied. The stench became very percepti
ble in the neighborhood, vulture after
vulture as they sailed past were observed
always to descend to the cottage of the
German, and to sweep round as if they
had tracked some putrid carcase, but
failed to find exactly where it was."
The American Naturalist.
Assess and Divide.
"Father," he said, as the old gentle
man looked up, "you are the president
of a silver mining company and can tell
me what an assessment is."
"Yes, my son. "We are just now
sending out an assessment of 20 per
cent. It means that every one owning
shares in the company must pa
twenty cents on every dollar."
Oh, that's ii! And now what's a
"A dividend is the sharing of a profit
"with stockholders. That is, when the
officers of a company so far forget
themselves as to have more cash on
hand than they know what to do with it
is divided up. There isn't much use in
you remembering the word and its in
terpretation." "But I must remember what assess
"Certainly; never forget that. When
assessments fail the country fails. One
dividend of three per cent excuses five
assessments of ten per cent. Now run
out to pla'."

FOR THE CURE OF

Or CHILLS and FEVER,
AHD ALL MALARIAL DISEASES.
The proprietor of this celehrated medicine
justly claim3 for it a superiority over all rem
edies ever offered to the public for the SAFE,
CERTAIN , SPEEDY and PEEHANElf T cure
of Ague and Fever, or Chills and Fever, wheth
er or short or longstanding. He refers to the
entire "Western and Southern country to hear
him testimony to the truth of the assertion
that in no case whatever will it fail to euro if
the directions are strictly folio wed and carried
out. In a great many cases a single dose has
been sufficient for a cure, and whole families
have been cured by a single bottle, with aper
fect restoration of the general health. It is,
however, prudont, and in every case more cer
tain to cure, if its use is continued in smaller
doses for a week or two after the disease has
boen checked, more especially in difficult and
long-standing cases. Usually this medicine
will not require any aid to keep the bowels in
good order. Should the patient, however, re
quire a cathartic medicine, after having taken
three or four doses of the Tonic, a single dose
of BULL'S VEGETABLE FAMILY PILLS
will be sufficient.

Mn. A. S. Merrill, the popular expressman of
Brunswick, Me., unites us on May 15, 1S33, as follows:
'Havtnsbcen severely afflicted for about two years
with inflammation of the kidneys and bladder, so called
by my physicians. I suffered with distressing p'ainsin
my tack and retention of urine, caused by a stoppage
of theneckof the bladder, and a complication of other
diseases. I was hardly able to attend to my business,
and at times would be completely prostrated. I was
also affected with incontinence of urine to an alarming
degree, indeed, it demanded my attention fifteen or
twenty times pcrnight, and at times it would seem im
possible for me to ride down to the depot on my wagon,
for every jar from the wagon would almost seem to
take my life. Having failed to obtain relief from my
doctor, I finally consulted our druggist. Dr. Merry
man, of Brunswick, and requested him to furnish me
with the most reliable and speedy cure for such sick
ness, for I was suffering too much for human nature
to endure long. The doctor recommended me to use
Hunt's Remedy, as it had been used with remarkable
success in a good many cases in Brunswick and vicini
ty. I purchased a bottle, and received such great re
lief that I continued, and had not used two bottles be
fore I began to Improve beyond my expectations. Tho
pains in my kidneys and loins disappeared, I gained
strength, and my water began to pass naturally, and I
was able to sleep soundly, and obtain the greatly
needed rest which for a long time I could not. I am
fully restored to health, and can attend to my business.
Thanks to Hunt's Bemedy for my restoration, and I
highly recommend it to all who are troubled with kid

1 Like an Evil Spirit.
In olden times it was thought that evil spirits came in through cracks
and keyholes. The generally approved way to keep them out was to plug
up the keyholes and stop the cracks with cotton. Notwithstanding these
preventive measures, the evil things had their own way and often came in
as they pleased.
So comes malaria now-a-days. We try to keep it out of the keyhole
and it comes in by the crack. We stop up the crack, and lo ! it comes from
a leak in the plumbing, or an opening from some neglected drain, or from
some unsuspected source and unguarded direction.
We cannot always keep malaria out, but we can give it battle and
drive its effects from our systems. If Brown's Iron Bitters is taken in
time, malaria has not a ghost of a chance. This is the great family medi
cine. Your druggist sells it, and you oujrhr to keep a bottle in the house.

I have lately been a subscriber lo your
tasty anil profitable paper, and must say I
am more than pleased with It. I gave my

for anything contained In the paper; but I
find the paper Is worth three or four times
the money beside all presents.
