i there i a power to make each hour
sweet as heaven desinged it ;
No rsodire-'reTm-t bai'g it horne,

.A ad loso Mhat nature found us -
Forli h:alth hero no life so dear
As hone and friends around us.
- We ott destroy the present joy,
.Tor future hopes-and praiso them,
Whilst flowers as sweet bloom at our feet,
If wd'd but stoop to raise them
'or things afar stillsweetest are,
When youth's bright spell hath bound us:
lut'soon we're taught that earth hath
Like home and friends around us.
.1heffiends that speed in time of need,
When hope's last reed is shaken,
To show you still, that, come what. will,
We are not quite forsaken.
'T'hough all were night, if but the light
,Msyait friendship's altar crowned us,
'Twould prove that bliss of earth was this
Our home and friends around us !

TALLAFOSSA Co., Ala., Jan. 2, 182.
Dear Sir :-I send -on this to- certify to you
that your Extract of Yellow Dock and Sarsa
parilla hats performed one of the most wonderful
cures on m that has ever been efTected on man. -
I have been afflicted for forty years with
eruptions on n.y legs and feet; in 1848 they got
so bad that I had togo on crutches, and in I89
1 had one leg amputated abovo 'the knee. In
about nine months after imly other leg brokp ots
in large eating and running sores frcm mknes.
to ily foot, and discharged a great deal of ofen
sive matter. My groin broke out in larg bites
which discharged touch offensive matter, an
at the same time my left hand broke out in large
running sores nearly to my elbow.
The misery that 1 have sufLered for the last
two years 1 cannot describe to you. I was in
such agony that I never rested day or night.
In October last tity son brought me one of
your bottle wrappers, I read it, and found re
cord of some wonderful cures performed by.
your " Extract of Yellow Dock and Sarsapa
rilla," I sent and got two bottles of it, and
commenced taking it. In two weeks, to my
great astomishment, my sores all becanie easy,
and I could sleep all night, a thing I had not
done for two years. Whmen I had taken si
bottles, my sores had nearly all healed. My
sores got well as if by enchantment. I have
now used in all eignt bottles of your " Extract
of Yellow Dock and Sarsaparilla," and I now
consider myself well.
I entreat all of the afflicted to try this medi
cine, forI believe it will cure any known din
ease in the world.-Lay aside all prejudice and
just try it, and proclaim its great worth to
sufferitg mankind and entreat them to take it,
for it will cure them.
ly case is well known in a large portion of
South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama, and if
any should doubt the above cure, I invite them
to call on te, and I will show them the scars.
I can be found in Tallap'oosa Co., Alabama,
one mile from Store's Ferry. Renajati Hughes.
The Yellow Duck and Sarsaparilla is pecu
liarly adapted for females of delicate health,
resulting from irregularity of menstrual dis
charges, and other diseases peculiar to their
sex.--The proprietor has in his pOssession a
great number of certificates of cures, perfonned
of the above description. We assure the afflict
ed, that a bottle or two of Dr. Guysott's Ex
tract of Yellow Dock and Sarsaparilla will at
once regulate those difliculties and renew the
