FARM AND HOME.
Thos. P. Jones, Eevq., commissioner of
agriculture of the state of Georgia, says,
in a late reo.irt, that a first class fertil
izer may be made of ingredients put to
gether as follows : Stable manure, seven
hundred and fifty pounds; raw cotton
need seven hundred hnd fifty pounds,
and acid plioHphate, five hundred pounds.
This makes a ton of matter. His plan
ior composting is to spread under shelter
alaverof stablemanurefourinches thick;
on this sprinkle a jiortion of the pho
pate; next spread a layer of cotton seed
three inches thick wet these thoroughly
with water and sprinkle with phosphate;
next spread another layer of stable ma
nure three inches thick. Continue to
repeat these layers in the above order
until the material is consumed. Cover
the whole mass with stable manure, or
scrapings from the Jot, one or two inches
thick. Allow the heap to stand in this
condition until a thorough fermejtation
takes place, which will require from
three to six weeks, according to circum
stances, dependent upon moisture and
the strength of the materials used. When
the cotton seed arc thoroughly killed,
with a sjarp hoe or mattock, cut down
vertically through the layars ; pulverize
and shove in a heap, where the fermenta
tion will be renewed, and the compost
will be still further improved. After
this second fermentation has subsided
the fertilizer will be ready for use.
r or cotton lie recommends applying in
the op;n furrow two hundred pounds
per acre and with the planting seventy
five or one hundred pounds per acre,
mating in all, two hundred ana seventy
five or three hundred pounds per acre
If it is desired to apply a larger quantity
per acre, open furrows the desired dis
tance, and over them ow broadcast four
hundred pounds tier acre, bed the land.
and then apply one hundred pounds per
acre witu the seed.
For corn he would apply half a pint
to ine mil, placed to one side ot the seed
not in contact with it. An additional
application as a top dressing around
the hill might be made before the first

The Michigan Farmer says (and what
he says applies to Alabama as well as to
Michigan) that there are many consid

zers, they afford some variety to farm
life, they are a food-producing animal,
their wool always sell for cash at some
price, and they are easily handled an J
their product cheaply marketed. No
crop can fill or take the place of the
wool crop. AVe understand that there
will Iks a disjosition to sacrifice sheep
on account of the low price of wool.
We recollect the scare of 18G9, and we
also recollect that those who held on to
wool production made the money, and
we apprehend this will again be the case.
We do moht earnestly recommend that
wool growers cull their flocks, and turn
off all inferior, non-productive sheep,
but let no one imagine that the bottom
is about to fall out of the business.
There are altogether too many sheep
shearing two and a half to three pounds
of wool; no sheep should be retained
that shears less than four pounds of
wool ; turn off all this low kind of
trash and the best time to test their
value is at the time of shearing. Then
jnark every slier p for the shambles that
does not come up t i the standard. The
best flocks are the ones that are going to
pay. It is with sheep as it is with hogs
or with cattle there must be selections,
flocks must be culled some pains must
le taken with breeding stock. All we
can say is, let the man who has a good
flock of shteo keep making it better.

The editor of the Maryland Farmer
says he has been making his surplus
watermelons into molasses by simply
peeling off the outer rind, pressing out
the juice in a cider press ana then evap

of sorghum or sugar cane. After that
he says: " Wo can give our readers
another useful hint for utilizing their
surplus watermelons. It is this: Last
year we saw some Virginia farmers feed
watermelons to their milch cows, when
they came up at night, with very good
effect, by increasing the quantity of their
Writing on tho same subject the editor
of the Florida Agriculturist says :
Watermelons make a most excellent
right colored vinegar. There are thou
sands of these thrown away that are too
small for marketing. Why not extract
the juice from the sweet portion and
convert it into vinegar? Any old whis
key barrel would do to keep it. All
that is required is a little syrup or mo-
lasses to an ine fermentation, it we
wish our state to prosjn?r we must turn
our attention to these little articles, and
live within ourselves. There are plenty
of melons still left to turn into vinegar.
Do not let another cent go out of the
state for vinegar.

At the national swine breeders' con
vention, which met nt Cooper Institute,
in the city of New York, May 14th 1872,
two elaborate reports were read on the
liWtory, characteristics, and scale of
points of the Poland or Magie hog. The
following, a minority report of John M.
Milliken, of Ohio, was adopted. At that
convention it was agreed to drop the
word Marie from the name, and that the
Poland-China be reeogivzed as the ac
cepted name of the breed. The report
states thai, :
In the early history of swine breeding
in the Miami valley, Ohio, it is clear,
lrom the best authority, that there were
two breeds, he Russia and the 1 5y field. J
The Bedford breed is also named with
tne other two. in iit we have posi
tive proof that the Shakersof Union Vil
lage Warren county, Ohio, purchased,
one boar and three sows, pure Dhina
. ailed "big China hoes." The Shakers,
and other judic'ous breeders of Warren
eind Butler county, continued to use the
L reeds at command, and produced, by re-
tated crosses, a hog of exceedingly fine
iiialities for that period, known as the
Warren county hog." The very best
r pecimens were used, so as to make the
liest crosses. Thii condition of the breed
ontinued until IS3or l.S:5ti, when Mr.
riunson or Beach introduced the Berk
i hire from' New York. The Berkshire
i IikxI was liberally infused into stock
j .ow existing in Ohio, until 183S or 1839,
hen Mr. Neff, of Cincinnati, imported
lome choice r-jeeimen8 ef Irish Graziers.
'Jhis breed soon grew into high favor,
l?nd was liberally crossed with the crosses
already made. This crossing of breeds
continued for some time. In a few years
pure blooded Berkshire1 were no longer
used, and no more Irish Graziers import
ed. The breeders of swine in the Miami
valley settled down to the convic
tion " that the basis of a good
breed of hogs had been established,
and stimulated by their success
they have aimed to improve what they
have been so successful in forming. All
defects have been corrected or improved

oughly established, which can be relied
upon by the production of like quanti

No man knows what these are. AVe

were once grown on one acre, and that

A Ninarular t'aa.
One of our farmers relates a singular
case which occurred some time ago upon
his farm. He had upon his place in the
spring five or six excellent cows which
were civing large quantities of milk,
Suddenly the milk began to diminish
without apparent cause. Ihe cows
were well fed and there was no
reason why the milk should fail,
Every morning and evening when
the animals came up, each cow had
the appearance of having been "tarn
pered with." This went on several days
without any explanation, when our
farmer determined to discover who was
robbing him of his milk; and he there
fore one day followed his cows to the pas
ture and concealed hnnselt so that he
might overtake the thief. The mystery
was explained in a short while, when a
number of good sized pigs trotted up, and
each grabbed a teat and began the milk
ing process. It is supposed that the pigs
" learned how" when the cows were lying
down, and as they grew older became
more expert, and soon caught the trick
of reaching up when the cows were in
motion. When our friend first discov
ered the infant porkers the coivswere
sauntering leisurely along seeming per
fectly willing to add to the happiness
and growth of their more diminutive
companions. Such cases as this are prob
ably rare, but this one is vouched for
by one of the most truthful and intelli
gent farmers of Madison. Other persons
may possibly profit by the informa

Principles of Clood Farming;.
The better t retain important facts in
the memory, I am ever fond of reducine
the principles of good farming to brief
maxims and rules, compressing into a
single short sentence the gist of many a
pnge. Thus, I carry about the mental
pabulum to be digested at the handle of
the plow. The following are some ef
1. The farmer who would succeed well,
and derive pleasure as well as profit from
his calling, must manifest an active and
abiding interest in hia vocation. It
takes heart-work to make hand-work
2. The farmer must study how best to
increase and maintain fertility to his soil.
There is no inertia in agriculture. There
must be progress, either forward or ret
rograde. 3. The farmer must strive to increase
the quality as well as the quantity of his
crop. It is the quality that determines
the price. In this, "excelsior" should
be his unvarying motto.
4. The farmer must seek with watch
ful eyes to improve his market facilities.
It is transportation that eats up all the
5. The art of raising better stock is
not as well known as it should be. Keep
no more animals than you have the fa
cilities to feed and care for well.

his social, intellectual and financial con
dition. Fashion Notes.
At a dinner given her in Paris re
cently, the queen of Greece wore a
thick faille dress of purest white, made
as a fourreau, with a train, and trimmed
all round with large coquilles of Alencon
lace, and in each lace shell there was a
brown petunia encircled with gold leaves.
The head-dress was a low wreath, com-
osed ol petunia and diamonds arranged
alternately. Another dress worn at this
dinner was an original one of dust-gray
gauze, studded with large red poppies,
which had black hearts, and for head
dress a coronet of poppies.

seventeen to twenty-two years of age
which a Turkish broker was then treat
ing to sell at the price of three Turkish
sovereigns each. The sale was conducted
privately, and with some secrecy ; but
similiai transactions were a very com

much talked about by most people.

Unlike jSelson. who at an early age
found himself longing to hasten
away t sea, Arthur Wellesiey
does not seem to have had anv thought,
when he was- very young, of ever being
the lamous man that he alterwards be
came; nor do we find him, like Robert
Clive. collecting his school fellows to
gether in martial order, and then with
himself at their head, playing at soldiers
by marching his little army about the
neehborheod in which he lived. No ; of a
different disposition wasthefuturedukeof
Wellington at this time ; and it was not, as
you will hear, until wmt years later
that he even thought about the choice of
that profession which he then adopted
with so much success,
One of the first troubles at least so it
seemed to him that Arthur had to en
dure was when he was placed at a small
chool at Chelsea, near London. It might
be supposed that, unhappy as he was at
home, he would have hailed with delight
the day on which he could get away
from thoso whs seemed to take so little
interest in his welfare ; but such does
not appear to have been the case, and the
few months that he spent at his firrt
school were, perhaps, the most miserable
of his whole life. The tiuth was that
the little fellow, who was not at all in
good health, felt disheartened and dis
consolate through the rather unkind
treatment to which he had always been
more or less eubiected ; the cl-inge from
the liberty of home tothe lesson-books
of Bchool was not at all a welcome one to
him, and so it was that he became at
tim?s thoroughly depressed and melan
choly, appearing to take no interest in
anything, and permitting those days
which ought to have been some of his
brightest and merriest to pass by utterly
Unlike other boys of his own age he
never took an active part in any of the
sports with which his school fellows at
Chelsea amused themselves. He used
generaly on half hollidays to be s.en
comincr lazilvoutof the school-room. and.
instead of joining his companions in their
games, seating himselt beneath a large
wa'ntit tree which grew in the center of
tr.' playeround. I lere he would lounge
for hours together, and content himself
with gazing listlessly at those who were
enjoying themselves. Sometimes if he
happened to see one of them playing in
anv way unfairly he would inform the
others who were taking part in the game,
and on the cheat being turned out Ar
thur was now and then asked to supply
his place: nothing, h-iwever, could in-
ouce him to do so.
During the whole of his bos'hood Ar
thur was involved in a great many quar
rels, and it must be confessed that thev
were usually, if not of his own seeking,
at least attributable to his own conduct.
At the school of which we are speaking
it is not all surprising to find that his
strange behavior soon made him unpopu
lar: it was indeed most natural that it
should do so, for the boys could hardly
be expected to make a friend f one who
deliberately stood aloof from them as
Arthur did; and that he should some
time come to blows with his school-fellows
was only a result which might have
But our hero was, as a rule, able to
take his own part, and it was at this time
that he seems to have begun to gain that
reputation for courage for which in after
life he was always so noted. It is said
that sometimes while quietly sitting be
neath his favorite tree, he was provoked
and attacked by as many as five or six
boys together. He generally succeeded,
however, in freeing himself from their
grasp and conquering his opponents, and
would then return to his old place again,
as if nothing had taken place.
Arthur made so little progress with his
studies at Chelsea that it was soon de
cided by his friends that he should not
remain" there, and it was determined
that he should be sent to Eton, where
one of his brothers had already greatly
distinguished himself as a scholar, and
thither he accordingly went.
Bui it was soon evident that Arthur
was the same indolent, dreamy boy here
that he had been at Chelsea, and vain
indeed were the endeavors that were
made by his instructors to assist him in
gaining a good place among his class-fellows.
Dull and shy as he had been at
his previous school, he was, apparently,
even more so now. though in reality he
was, it must be said, gradually becoming
inwardly more spirited and active than
he had hitherto been, and he was, per
haps rather more popular.
jt ill, Arthur formed no Lasting friend
ship with any of his school-fellows. He
walked out alone and took no part in
out-door sports, living, in fact, an almost
solitary life among members who would
pladly have fraternized with him had he
himself been so disposed.
We have told you that Arthur was
rather inclined to be quarrelsome. It was
while he was at iAon that he gave
stronger proof than ever that hisdisposi
tion at that time was not altogether of a
It happened once in the course of
walk that he discovered one of the boyi
called Bobus !?mith swimming in the
river Thames, and when he saw hini he
could not resist the temptation of throw
in '. a stone at him. Bobus was not un
naturally indignant, and threatened to
come on shore and thrah his assailant if
the insult were repeated. Arthur, how
ever, seemed particularly inclined to
provoke his school fellow, and so a sec
ond stone was thrown, and the result of
it all was as it certainly ought not to
have been; lor Bobus Smith, having
scrambled ashore to punish our hero,
was himself attacked most mercilessly,
and the contest, enuea in nis own com
plete, but quite undeserved, defeat.
Years afterwards Bobus used to relate
with great glee that he had been the
subject of the great duke's fit st victory,
" For." said he. " Arthur Wellesly and
I had a fight at Eton, and ho thrashed
me soundly 1 "
But the hero was not always fortunate
enough to beat his opponents in such
discreditable encounters as this.
During his holidays he used frequent
ly to spend a few weeks at his grand
father's house in North Wales, and it
was on the occasion of one of these visits
that he formed the friendship of a young
blacksmith named Hughes. By some
v .1 11
means, however, iney quarreled, and
this time Arthur received a beating.
Just as Bobus Smith felt honored be-
cau-e he was the subject of Arthur Wel-
leslev's first victory, so did the Welsh
blacksmith, when he grew up. relate
with pride how he had, on the contrarv,
defeated our hero. " But," the honest
fellow would say, when he told the
storv, " Master t eiiesiey Dore me no
ill-will for the beating, and made me his
companion through many a ramble after
he quarrel, just as ne naa aone neiore.
A!ter Arthur had been at Eton for
some time, it was plainly to be seen that
he was not likely to gain much renown
there ; and it must be said that his fail
ure to do so was a source of great disap
pointment to his friends. His father,
the earl of Mornington, was now dead,
nd the family circumstances were not
so cood as they once had been, so that I
there was unusual cause lor anxiety in
consequence of his non-success.
At length it was determined by lady
Mornington that her son should be taken
trom Eaton, and that she would remove
to Belgium. Thither she and Arthur
accordingly went, and he was placed
under the care of a private tutor in
Bruels. But even here he made very
slight advance with his studies at first
and for some time he seemed to give little 1
promise for the future, being almost as
indisposed to take any trouble to get on
now as he had been when at Chelsea and

We are told that it was at about the
time of whicn we are speaking that
Arthur happened on one occasion to be
traveling with his mother in Belgium,
and that they stayed or a little while at
a foi tilled town one that had been cap
tured by the great duke of Marlbor
ough. It is said that Arthur's visit to
this place was the turning-point ot his
life, for so deeply did the oattlements
and the rows ot cannon interest him

cause ot his becoming a soldier we can
not say, but there seems to be every
probability that such was the case, for
very soon afterwards he left Belgium and
joined the military college at Angers, in
France (there being no academy ot the
kind in England at that time.)
Now it was that Arthur began to lead
an altogether new life. H had at last
some fixed object in view on which he
could centar his attention ; he knew that
it depended entirely upon himself
whether he ever attained it ; and so he
manfully made up his mind to do his
very utmost to make amends for bis past
failings, and, if possible, to be successful
Right well did he avail himself of all
his opportunities to gain knowledge and
to get on ; and thus it was that during
the eighteen months that he was at
Angers the great progress made by him
more than fulfilled the expectations that
had been lormed by his friends, and he
acquitted himself so satisfactorily that by
the time h-3 was seventeen years of age
he was rewarded with an ensign's com
mission in the English army.
The Contests for the (Jueen's Cnp.
The second victory of the yacht Made
It ine over the Countess of Dufferin settles
the question as to who is to be the pos
sessor of the queen's cup. It is twenty
five years since the "Yankee schooner"
America dropped anchor at Cowes and
signified her intention to enter for the
queen's cup. Mr. Bull was annoyed at
this impertinence, and wondered if
Yankee assurance would have no end.
Had it not been for the newspapers the
America would not have been admitted
to the race, but they took the matter up
and fairly laughed the English yachtsmen
into common courtesy. The race was
run on the 22d of August. 1851. The
eourse was around the Isle of Wight in
the changing currents of a soa not at all
familiar to the America, which, however,
came in twenty-five minutes ahead of
the second boat, and the rest of the
squadron so far astern as to be rated as
"stragglers." Eightee- yachts entered,
and the America was the last to start.
The splendid queen's cup was held by
the winners for several years, and then
presented as an international challenge
to the New York yacht club. In 1870
Mr. Ashbury, of England, entered the
Cambria for this cup, and was beaten bv
the Magic. In 1871 lie returned witk
the Livonia and renewed the challenge.
It was settled that four races out of seven
must be won to take the prize. Mr. Ash
bury in five races won once only, and
was declared beaten. The yachts that
beat him were the Columbia and the Sap
pho. He out-sailed the Columbia once.
No foreign yacht has taken up the gaunt
let dropjied by Mr. Ashbury until this
year, when major Giflbrd brought the
Countess of Durierin from Canada to con
test for this prize. It is to be hoped
that the result will not discourage the
Canadians from sending other contes
tauts for the cup in future.

Campbell's Toast to Xapoleon.
ThU, told of Thomas Campbell, is very
neat, as illustrating the sentiment with
which the authors of old davs regarded
their publishers. At a literary dinner
Cample I asked leave to propose a toast
and gave the healMi of Napoleon Bona
parte. The war was at its height, and
the very mention of Napoleon's name,
except in conjunction w th some ui
complimentary epithet, was, in most
cases, regarded as an outrage. A storm
of groans burst out, and Campbell ith
difficulty could get a few sentences
htard. "Gentlemen," he said, "you
must not mistake me. I admit that the
French emperor is a tyrant. I admit
that he is a monster. I admit that he I
is the foe of our own nation, and, if you

Zarh Chandler's Civil 8rvlc Reform.
Washington special to tbe Chicago Times.
A $1,600 clerk named Redway went
th rough the land office recently levying
tl e political assessments on the clerks
for the presidential campaign. The male
employes are assessed at the rate of two
per cent, on their salaries. Redway car
ried with him two lists, and informed
the employes that he as expressly or
dered by secretary Chandler to put upon
ona list for dismissal all who refuse to
pay. Some pleaded inability to pay on
account of large families, and some few
refused, but were merely told they
would be dismissed. The commissioner
of the land office headed the list with a
subscription of $80. They are hurrying
up these political assessments, and want
to get them collected before the pending
legislation becomes a law, because it con
tains a section which makes it a penal
offense for any person to solicit an em
ploye of the government to pay an as
sessment levid for political purposes.
The appropriation bills have at last
all been passed by congress and approved
by the president. The record of re
trenchment in public expenditures
which have been made by the house in
the face of a protesting republican sen
ate, goes to the country, and can not be
answered by the supporters of the re
publican party. The official figures, pre
pared by the committee on appropria
tions carefully, confirm the estimates
which have heretofore been made, and
give Mr. Randall and his committee the
highest meed of praise. The total re
ductions which have been made by tbe
hfuse from the estimates submitted by
the administratien are $64,346,682.06.
The total reductions, made by the house
from last year's expenditures are $38,
910,984.29. The net reductions after
the senate increased the appropriations
are very nearly thirty millions of dol
lars, the exact figures being $29,044,
252.86. The retrenchment covers all
the branches of the public service. In
the naval service, for instance, the ap
propriations are nearly $8,000,000 below
secretary Robeson's wasteful estimates.
For the legislative, executive and judi
cial expenses of the government $7,000,
000 less than the estimates and nearly
$3,000,000 less than passed by the senate
last year are appropriated. The army is
cut down from the estimates nearly $6,
000,000 with $2,000,000 nearly less ap
propriated than last year. The postal
service is in the same ratio. The river
and harbor bill is reduced nine millions
below the estimates, and over a million
below last year's appropriations. The
pension list, of course, can not vary
much, but is half a million below last
year. The sundry civil bill comes down
lrom thirty-two and a half millions of
estimates to sixteen millions, being ten
millions and a half less than tbe law of
last year called for.

Even with the best of leaders, all the
public reforms must come from the awak
ened moral sense of the nation, which
creates public sentiment and sustains
well-directed efforts for the common
weal. If the public conscience be right
it may lead the leaders and control the
rulers, at least so far as to secure respon
sibility. And this is the hope of our
times for the solution of those great moral
issues which are involved in political re-1
form. The ballot is more to na than the
rod of office. Bad men may be summa
rily thrust out of places which they dis-
grace, but the only sure remedy ior pop

Mr. Boutwell, in his report on Mis

state. As a consequence, of course, Mr.
Lamar has not been legally elected to the
United States senate, and the members of
the house chosen last fall are not entitled
to their seats. How happens it that Ames
acquiesced in all this outrage so calmly?
He issued the certificates of election to
the members of congress chosen, and re
cognized the legislature, not only by sub

An Actor's Astounding " Bac k Fall.',
But the fall that have been safely ac
complished again and again, says Wal
singham, treating of theatrical fallings
ana ayings, are all ot minor importance
compared witn one great eflort which
most leading actors and actresses woul
give a great deal to be able to coun
amongthe mechanical portions of their
art. I his is the " back fall," an achieve

would give $2,000 to be able to accom

ine DacK iau is on me same prin
ciple as tne lall which is ordinarily made
upon the stage, that is, the weicht of the
actor or actress who attempts it must all
go on the hands.
But the only man who could, or who
can, execute the great " back fall," was
an actor named Joseph Jagle, who was,
and may still be, a great favorite in the
west, and who has appeared in this city
before such audiences as those of Wood's
museum and the Bowery. This excel
lent melodramatic porformer was blessed
with this great accomplishment, which,
it may be said, sometimes threatened to
" bring down the house" literally. The
effect on the audience of seeine his im
mense form he was full six feet in
height falling backward towards them
was something tremendous, and he had
only to introduce this feat to waken the
most phlegmatic audience into enthusi
asm, lie would stiffen himself until
perfectly rigid and then come down like
an avalanche, un one occasion, when
he was playing a star engagement in the
Cleveland theater where Clara MorriB
underwent her novitiate, some caprice
overtook him, and clasping the hands of
that actress firmly as she (as his daugh
ter in the play) was preparing to with
draw from him prior to nis " back fall,"
he bore her with him in a decent that
seemed to her terrified imagination like
lean from some lolty precipice. It
was usual, and, indeed, necessary for
him to lall alone, as he had to use his
hands to receive his whole weight. He
was merciluiiy sparea irom aisaster in
the rash attempt just noted, but al an
other time he was less fortunate.
So apprehensive were the actors when
they ued to see mm try tne tali at re
hearsals as he would occasionally, to
accustom them to it that they would
generally rush forward or hold out their
hands, involuntarily seeking to break
his descent. Upon one occasion Frank
Murdoch (a young actor, now dead, who ,
became so well known as the author of
"Davy Crockett," the romantic drama
in which Frank Mayo has been so suc
cessful) seemed particularly nervous at
Nagle's great fall, and that acrobatic i ta
felt compelled to warn him against any
demonstration on his part in the evening
that would tend disturb him at that
point, warningt him that it might prov
fatal. When Murdoch saw him falling,
his fears, however, mastered his discre
tion, and he sprang forward and touched
him. breaking the fall. Nagle received
severe injuries inyeed it was a wonder
that his neck was not broken and lay
in excruciating agony for days. He re
covered, however, and did the ' back
fall" to the admiration of all beholders
many times afterwards.

Effects of Lightkixo. A singular
occurrence lately transpired in the
northern part of Putnam and the south
ern portion of Dutchess counties, New
York. After a violent t hunder storm
accompanied by an unusual amount of
cnain-llgnming anu torrents oi ram, tu
wild geese were picked up by tne nun
dreds. Numbers dT them had previously
been observed alive in the shallow pond
of the vicinity, and they were seen to act
strangely during the storm, as though
they had been fired upon. The beads of
the dead fowl were badly torn and in
some cases their feathers were burned to
a crisp and their bodies burst open.

It is a sad commentary upon onr boasted
civilization that the women of our times
have degenerated in health and physique
until they are literally a race of invalids
pale, nervous, feeble and back-achy, with
only here and there a few noble exceptions
in the persons of the robust, buxom ladies
characteristic of the sex in days gone by.
By a very large experience, covering a pe
riod of years, and embracing the treatment
of many thousands of cases ot those ailments
Becnliar to Women, Pr. Pierce, of the World's
lispensary, Buffalo, N. Y., has perfected, by
the combination of certain vegetable extracts,
a natun 1 specific, which he does not extol as
a care-all, bat one which admirably fulfills a
singleness of purpose, heine a most pocitive
and reliable remedy for those weaknesses
and complaints that afflict the women of the
present day. The natural specific compound
is called Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription.
The following are among those diseases in
which this we-nderful metlicine has worked
cures as if by magic and with a certainty
never before attained bv any medicines :
Weak back, nervous and general debility,
falling and other displacements of internal
organs, resulting from debility and lack of
strength in natural supports, internal fever,
congestion, inflammation and ulceration and
very many other chronic diseases incident to
women, not proper to mention here, in which,
as well as in the cases that have been enu
merated, the Favorite Prescription effects
cures the marvel of the world. It will not
do harm in any state or condition of the sys
tem, and by adopting its use the invalid lady
may avoid the severest of ordeals the con
suiting of a family physfcian. Favorite
Prescription is sold by dealers in medicines
Mill who are suffering from the effects of the
warm weather and are debilitated, are adrised by
physicians to take moderate amounts of whisky
two or three times during the day. In a little
while those who adopt this advice frequently in

come confirmed Inebriates. A bereraee which
will not create thirst fir Intoxicating liquors, and
which ia Intended especially for the benefit of de
bilitated persons whether at home or abroad, la
Dr. Schenck's Pes Weed Tonic. Containing the
juices of many medicinal herbs, this preparation
does not create an appetite for the intoxicating
cup. The nourishing and the life-supporting prop
erties of many valuable natural productions con
tained in It and well known to medical men bare
a most strengthening influence. A single bottle ef
the Tonic will demonstrate its valuable qualities.
For. debility arising from sickneas, over exertion
or from any cause whatever, a wineglassful of Sea
Weed Tonic taken after meals will atrengthen
the stomach and create an appetite for wholesome
food. To all who are aliout leaving their homes,
we desire to ssy that the excellent ellects of lr
