To'Day's Race. Fine spprt may be expected at
the track to-day. Woodfolk's b. f. Martha Dunn
will contest the right to the purse of 400, with the
famous horse Compromise. This announcement
will doubtless call forth a large crowd to-day, and
the sport may be expected to run high. Gen.
"Woodfolk raised both of the entries, having recent
ly sold Compromise to a company of gentlemen in
Louisville. Compromise has never yet been beat
en, and is believed to be one of the best horses
now on the turt Martha Dunn has also much rep
utation, having,- we believe, never lost but one
j race. Shels a fine animal in appearance, aud will
' have her friends against all odds. If she should
take "the horns" from the horse, herjfurtunc will be
' made. At any rate, we advise all who wish to see
fine racing, to turn out to-day. The race will be a
Jrtvell contested one without doubt,

It is an a-ssociaJon formed by individuals, who unite to

case of death. Inotlerto accomplish thi it becomes, ne
cessary to establish aiUnd, which is done by a yearly con
tribution, duly apportimed among them according to their
expectations of life, and he amount to be received by the

Dear Sir: I take the m-esent ODnortunitr of bearincr
testimony to the medical qualities of your Pulmonic Medi
cine. Tne Rev B B Barker had a cou?h for about three
or four weeks. It not only was distressing to himself, but
such was the severity of the paroxysms that all around sym
pathized with him. I advised him to try jour Compound
Syrup of Wild Cherry and Wood Naptha. He did so, and
took one bottle, and it stopped the cough almost immedi
ately, and Las not since returned, nor has he had any symp-
uiius ui lb since.
I hare used many coush medicines, and have tried and
seen used, all the balsams and nostrums of the present day,
and I verily believe that yours is superior to them alL
