THE TYOHEN OF ENGLAND.
A at Ameriraa Virw mt HrllUli Mald and
One day a lady whom I had had the
pleasure of taking in to dinner in a
country house near Indon,and whom I
had soon found to be one of those simple-mindedagood-natured,
men, who are notably common in Eng
land, fpoke to me about eome ladies who,
on a previous day, had attracted her
attention, adding: " I knew they were
Americans." "How?" I asked. "Oh,
we alwavs know American women!"
" But how, pray?" She thought a mo
ment, and answered : " By their beau ty
they are almost always pretty, "not
more by their fine complexions, and by
their exquisite diess." I did not
tell her that I thought that she was
right ; but that she was so I had by that
time become convinced. And yet I
HhouM say that the most beautiful wo
men I had ever seen were English wo
men, were it not for the memory ol the
French women, a German, and a Czech.
Hut the latter three were rare exceptions.
Beauty is very much commoner among
women of the English race than among
those of any other with which I am ac
quainted ; and among that race it is com
moner in America than in England. I
faw more beauty of iace and figure at
the first two receptions, which I attended
af ter my return than I had found among
the hundreds of thousands of women
whom I had seen in England.
The types are the same in both coun
1 ri '8 ; but they seem to come near to per
fection much oftener here than there.
Teauty of feature is, however, some
times more clearly defined in England
than here. The mouth in particular,
when it is beautiful, is more statuesque.
The cu rves are more decided, and at the
junction of the red of the lips with the
white there is a delicately red outline
which marks the form of the feature in a
very noble way. This may also be said
of the nostril. It gives a chiseled effect
to tho.-M? features which is not so often
found in America ; but the no6c itself,
the brow and the set and carriage of the
head ure generally finer among Ameri
cans. In both countries, however, the
head is apt to be too large for perfect
projortion. This is a characteristic de
lect of the English type of beauty. Its
eflt'ctfis seen in fitothard's figures, in
Ktty's, and in those of other English
painters. Another defect is in the
heaviness of the articulations. It' ally
hne arms are rare, but fine
tie wrists are
the the Yien-
still rarer. Such wrists as
muse women have of which 1 saw a
wonderful example in the Yien noise wife
of a Sussex gentlemen are almost un
known among women of English race in
either country. It is often said, even in
Knglpnd, that American women have
more beautiful feet than English women
have. This I am inclined to doubt. The
feet may be smaller here, and they gener
ally look smaller because English women
wear larger and heavier shoes. They are
obliged to do so because they walk more,
nnd because of their moister climate.
Hut mere smallness is not a beauty in a
tint more than in any other part of the
Ixxly. It is said by some persons, who
by saying it profess to know, that nature,
prodigal of charms to Knglish women in
oust, shoulders and arms, is chary of
thtm elsewhere, and that their beauty of
figure is apt to stop at the waist. Upon
this point I do not venture to give an
opinion ; but 1 am inclined to doubt the
judgment in question upon general
physiological principles. The human
figure is the development of a germ ; and
it is not natural that, whatever may be
the case with individuals, the type of a
whole race in one country should present
this inconsistency. Possibly those who
started this notion were unfortunate in
their occasions of observation and com
parison. Much has been said about the com
plexion of the women of England, which
lias leen greatly praised. I have not i
found it exceptionally beautiful. It is
often fresh, oftener ruddy, but still
oftener coarse. A delicate, finely-graduated
bloom is not common. The rosy
checks when looked at closely are often
streaked with fine lines and mottled with
minute spots of red; and the white is
.-till oftener not like that of a lily, or;
U tter, of a white rose, but of some much
coarser object in nature. It is true that
in making these odious comparisons I
c-aunot forget certain women, too com
mon in America, who seems to be com
jM)ied in equal parts of mind and leather,
the elements of body and soul being left
out so far as is consistent with existence
in human form. But such women are
also to le found in England, although
erhaps in fewer numbers than here.
As to dress, that, as a man, I must re
gard as a purely adventitious and an es
sentially unimportant matter. I feel,
therefore, that I am Baying very little
against. English women, when I say
that, iu general, they are the worst
dressed human creatures that I ever saw,
except, perhaps, the female half of a
certain class of Germans. The reputa
t ion that they have in this respect among
French women and Americans is richly
deserved, (.rood taste is simply absent.
The notion of fitness, congruity and
" concatenation accordingly, ' does not
exist. In form, the English woman's
dress is dowdv, in color, frightful. If
not color-blind, she seems generally to be
blind to the effect of color, either singly
or in combination. At the Birmingham
festival I saw a lady in a tich, red-purple
(plum color) silk high around the
neck of course, as it was morning and
over this swept a necklace of enormous
coral beads. It made one's eyes ache to
look at her. This was not uncommon,
kiit a characteristic instance. Such com
Hnations may be justly regarded as
the rule in English women's dres. For
purple they have strong liking. They
not only wear it in gowns, but they
use it for trimming, in bands and
Hounces, in ribbons, in feathers. Thev
combine it with all other colors. An
English woman seems to think herself
" made " if she can deck herself in some
way with purple or silk velvet, or rib
bons or feathers. Of course I am ex
cepting from these remarks a few who
have intuitive good taste, and other few
who employ French modistes, and who
submit implicitly to their authority.
I he latter condition is essential: for
even when the main body of an English
woman's dress is in good taste she is very
a- J - a ' a . rv i
iu uemroy us eneci Dy some incon
gruous addition from her stores of hete
rogeneous jewels, or by pome other orna
ment ; a collar, a cape, a fichu or a rib
bon. They have a sad way of putting
forlorn things about their necks and on
thrir heads which is very depressing,
unless it is astonishing, which happens
.onietimes. An English woman will be
'olerably well dressed, and then will
make a bundle of herself by tying up
her neck and shoulders in a huge piece
of lace, or she will wear specimens of two
or three sets of jewels; or she will put a
colored feather in her hair, or a bonnet
on her head, that would tempt a tyrant
to bring it to the block.
It is because of the average English
woman's sad failure in dressing herself
that the notion has got abroad that En
glish men are finer looking than English
women. For the dress of the men i i
notably in good taste. It is simply
manly neat; and although sober in tiLt
and f-nug in cut, it is likely to have its
general sobriety lightened with a little
touch of bright, warm color. On the
other hand, the dress of American women
is generally far, very far, inferior to that
of the women in the correspondincr con
ditions of life. This helps to produce
t he corresponding mistaken notion that
the women in America are handsomer
than the men; upon the incorrectness
and essential absurdity of which I have
As to another attributed superiority
of the Yankee woman. I must express
my surprised dissent. I have not only
read, but heard their intelligence and so
cial qualities rated much higher than
that of their sisters in England. Fair
countrywomen, heed nat this flattery.
It is not true. The typical English
womeu of the upper and upper middle
class has in strength of mind and
in lntormation no type counterpart
in America. She may not know
Latin, and she may, and get little good
by it ; she may not be brilliant, or quick,
or self-adaptive, and she generally is not;
bat she is well informed both as to the
4U)t and the present , she shows the effect
rather of education than of school cram
ming, of culture inherited and slowly
acquired, and of intercourse .with able;
and highly educated and cultivated men.
She eenerally has some accomplishments
which she has acauired in no mere showy
boarding-school fashion, but with a re
spectable thoroughness. England is full
of ladies who paint well in water colors,
or who are musicians, not mere piano
players, or who are botanists, or who
write well, and who add one or more of
such acquirements to a solid general ed
ucation, a considerable knowledge ,of
affair?, and the ability to manage a
large household. She really man
ages all housebould affair?, troubling
her husband with no details, but
being careful to manage in such
a way as to please him. For, as I have
said before, the wish of the master of an
English household is the law of that
household. Notwithstanding all this, I
have been led to the firm belief that hen
pecking is far more common in England
than it is with us, and that curtain lec
ture are much oftener delivered here
than there, ' Mrs. Caudle's Curtain Lec
tures" would hardly have suggested
themselves to an American humorist, al
though the thing itself if not in its per
fection, in its germ is sufficiently known
hire to make the humor and the satire
of that series perfectly appreciated. And
strange to say, the average English
husband seems to be a less independent
creature than the American. English
wives more generally insist upon their
prerogative of sitting solemnly up for
their husbands at night; and latchkeys
are regarded as a personal grievance.
What American wife would think of
making a fuss about a man's having a
latch-kev? Not a few of them, indeed,
have one themselves. And yet I have
seen an English weman of the lower
middle class, flush, and choke and whim
per when the subject of the inalienable
right of a man to a latch-key to bis own
hous? was broached, and begin to talk
about the worm turning when it is
The devotion of English women to
their families, and particularly to their
children, cannot fee surpassed. I believe
that they are the best, the most self
sacrificing daughters, wives and mothers
in the world except the good daughters
and wives and mothers in America, and
even them I believe they generally sur
pass in submissiveness and thoughtful
consideration. But this is the resultof
the general subordination which in all
things p?rvades English society.
It is generally believed in England, I
I cannot tell why, that women in America
' take part in public affairs, and are much
more in the eye f the world than .hng
lihh women are. Of this belief I met
with an amusing instance. One day at
dinner in a great housed had on one side
of me a gentleman who had come in
alone for lack of ladies enouph to eo
round;" it was a small family party
He was the brother of my hostess, a fine,
intelligent fellow about twenty-five years
old, who had just taken his bachelor i
degree at Oxford. As I turned from his
sister to him in a pause of conversation
he asked me with great earnestness, al
most with solemnity: "Is it true
that in America the women sit-
on juries?" I answered instantly, and
with perfect gravity: " Yes ; all of them
who are not on duty as sergeants of
dragoons." For one appreciable delight
ful moment doubt and bewilderment
flashed through his bright, handsome
eyes, and then he, as well as others with
in earshot, appreciated the situation, and
there was a hearty laugh ; an ingenuous
blush mantled his cheeks for young men
can blush in England.
The soft charm of the Englishwoman's
manner is greatly helped and heightened
by her voice and her manner of speaking,
In these she is not only without an equa
but beyond comparison with the women
of any other people, except the few of
herown blood and tongue in this country
who have like voices and the same utter
ance. The voices and speech of English
women of all classes are, with few ex
ceptions, pleasant to the ear soft and
clear; their words are well articulated,
but not precisely pronounced. They
speak without much emphasis, yet not
monotonously, but with gentle modula
tion, iheir speech is therefore easily
understood much more so than that of
persons who speak louder and with
stronger emphasis. You rarely or never
are obliged to ask an English woman to
repeat what she has said because you
have tailed to catch her words. This
soft, yet crisp and clear and easily flow
ing speech, is, as I have said, common to
the whole sex there.
One reason of this beauty of the speech
of English women is doubtless in the
'voice itself. An English woman's voice
is soft, but it is not weak. It is notably
firm, clear and vibrating:. It is neither
guttural nor nasal. While it soothes
the ear it compels attention. Like Ihe
tone of a fine old Cremona violin, its
softest vibrations make themselves heard
and understood when mere noise makes
only confusion. Such voices are not en
tirely lacking among women in America;
but, alas! how few of the unfortunate
posseasors of such voices here use them
worthily ! For the other element of. the
beauty of the English woman's speech is
in her utterance. "Her voice is ever
soft, gentle and low, an excellent thing
in woman. thakspeare knew the truth
in this, as in so many other things. One
of the very few points on which we may
be sure of his personal preferences is that
he disliked high voices and sharp speech
in woman. Singular man! I fear that
his ears would sutler here. The English
woman's voice is strong as well as sweet.
but her speech is low. She rarely raises
her voice. I do not remember having
ever heard an English woman try to com
pel attention in that way, but I have
heard French and Spanish and Italian
women, ladies of unquestionable position
and breeding, almost scream, and that,
too, in society. Nor does the Enelish
womau use much emphasis. Her man
ner of speech is calm, although without
any suggestion of dignity, and her inflec
tions, which rise often, although they are
full of meaning, are gentle. I remarked
this difference In her speech of itself, but
much more when I heard again the
speech of my own countrywomen. I had
not been in their company five minutes
not one when I was pierced through
from ear to ear. They seemed to me to
be talking in italics, to be emphasizing
every word, as it they would thrust it
into my ears, whether I would or not
They seemed to scream at me. They
did scream. I am sure that to their
emphatic and almost fierce utterance is
due, in a very great measure, the inferior
charm of their speech, when compared
wun mat. oi ineir sisters who have re
mained in the "old home." If they
would be a little more gentle, a little
ies selt-asserting, a title less determined.
and a little more persuasive in their ut-
icrauce hm wen as in ineir manner, i am
sure that, with all their other advantages,
they need feat no rivalry in womanly
charm, even with the truly feminine,
sensible, soft-mannered, sweet-voiced
women of England.

Sleep the Best Brain Stimulant.
The best possible thing for a man to
do when he feels too weak to carry any
thing through, is to go to bed and' sleep
as long as he can. This is the only re
cuperation of brain power, the only ac
tual recuperation of brain force; be
cause during sleep the brain is in a state
of rest, in a condition to receive and
appropriate particles of nutriment from
the bloed, which take the place of those
which kave been consumed by previous
labor, since the very act of thinking
burns up solid particles, as every turn
" wuctri r screw of the steamer is
the result of consumption by fire of the
fuel in the furnance. The supply of
consumed brain substance can only be
had from the nutritive particles in the
blood, which were obtained from th M
eaten previously ; and the brain is so
constituted that it can best receive and
appropriate to itself those nutritive par
ticles during a state of rest, of quiet and
stillness of sleep. Mere stimulants sup
ply nothing in themselves; they goad
the brain and force it to a greater con
sumption of its substance until it is so
exhausted that there is not power enough
left to receive a supply. Hrrald 'of

With the prospects before us, it would
seem that now is the time to make calcu
lations for one year ahead at least. From
various experiments made in fattening
hogs, it seems that a bushel of corn pro
duces from ten to twelve pounds of pork.
Six cents per pound for pork is said to be
equal to sixty-five or sixty-six cents per
bushel for corn. In many parts of the
state the weather has been unfavorable to
cotton planting, and we respectfully ask if
it would not be advisable to turn a part, at
least of our cotton land to corn.' The
time spent in plowing or bedding up
would not be lost by any means, for the
soil is in that much better condition for
corn. We sincerely believe that if one
half the cotton planted or to be planted,
was planted in corn, and the corn fed to
swine, that it would result in a saving of
tens of thousands of dollars. If the eastern
war continues long the demand for meats
will be immense and the southern farm
ers will have war price to pay if there is a
deficiency, and will get war prices if there
is a surplus in the south. But whether
there is war or peace in Europe, cotton will
be very low. Corn may be planted from
this ti me u n til the 20th of J u ne, wi th a cer
tainty almost) of raising a fair crop of
stock corn. Pork and beef, too, can and
ought to be raised in this state for expor
tation. We do wish farmers here would
turn their attention more to stock raising.
Cotton raising is the most confining and
slavish farming ever done, whilst stock
raising may be made an absolute means
of pleasure. Compared to cotton raising
stock raising, is mere play, don't forget

The life of Bryan Waller Proctor
(Barry Cornwall), which is to be pub
lished shortly, contains seme very in
teresting reminiscences of literary great
men that have never before been given
to the public. The following sketch of
uoiendge is a masterpiece ot pen-portraiture:
"He was full f words, full of thought,
yielding both in an unfailing flow, that
delighted many and perplexed a few of
his hearers. He was a man of prodigious
miscellaneous reading, always ready to
communicate all he knew. From alpha
to omega, all was familiar to him. He
was deep in Jacob Behmen ; he was in
timate with Thomas Aquinas and Que
vedo; with Bacon and. Kant; with
' Peter Simple' and 'Tom Cringle's Log,'
and with all the old divines of both Y.a
gland and France. The pages of all the
infidels had passed under his eye and
made their legitimate (and not more
than their legitimate) impression. He
went from flower to flower, throughout
the whole garden of learning, like the
butterfly or the bee; most like the bee.
He talked with everybody, about any
thing. He was so full of information
that it was a relief to him to part with
sme portion of it to others. It was like
laying down part of his burden. He
knew little or nothing of the art of paint
ing ; yet I have heard him discuss the
merits and defects of a picture of the
poorest class as though it had sprung
from the inspiration of Raphael. He
would advert to certain parts and sur
mise that it had been touched upon here
and there: would pronounce upon its
character and school, its chiaroscuro, the
gradations, the handling, etc., when in
ixct it had no mark or merit or charac
ter about it. It became transfigured,
sublimated by the speaker's imagina
tion." !everal anecdotes of Coleridge's doings
follow, of which we make room for two:
"One day, when dining with some
lawyers, he had been more than usually
eloquent and full of talk. His perpetual
interruptious were resented by one of
the guests, who said to his neighbor, ' I'll
stop this fellow;' and thereupon addressed
the master of the house with, G ,
I've not forgotten my promise to give
you the extract from The Pandects. It
was the ninth chapter that you were al
luding to. It begins: Ae retercs quidam
philosophL' 'Pardon me, sir,' interposed
Coleridge, 'there I think you are in
error. The ninth chapter begins in this
way : Incident mvpe caume etc. It was
in vain to refer to anything on the sup
position that the poet was ignorant, for
he really had acquaintance with every
subject. I imagine that no man had
ever read so many books and at the same
time had digested so much."
The second anecdote is given in illus
tration of Coleridge's propensity to talk
perpetually upon whatever subject any
one might suggest :
" He had come from Highgate to Lon
don for the sole purpose of consulting a
friend about his son Hartley ('our dear
Hartley'), toward whom he expressed,
and I have no doubt felt, much anxiety.
He arrived about one or two o'clock, in
the midst of a conversation, which imme
diately began to interest him. He struck
into the middle of the talk very soon, and
held the 'ear of the house' until dinner
made its appearance about four o'clock.
He then talked all through the dinner,
all the afternoon, all the evening, with
scarcely a single interruption. He ex
patiated on this subject and on that ; he
drew fine distinctions; he made subtle
criticisms. He descended to anecdotes,
historical, logical, rhetorical; he dealt
with law, medicine and divinity, until
at last, five minutes before eight o'clock,
the servant came in and announced that
the Highgate stage was at the corner of
the street and was waiting to convey Mr.
Coleridge home. Coleridge immediately
started up, oblivious of all time, and
said in a hurried voice : ' My dear Z ,
I will come to you some other day and
talk to you about our dear Hartley.'
He had quite forgotten his son and every
body else in the delight of such an en
If there is any special curse under
which the world at large, and eur country
in particular, is laboring, it is that of
sham. Both directly and indirectly,
shams effect an injury; and this injury
is both material and moral. It is, how-
ever hardly supposable that the latter
aspect of the case will nowadays have
much attention paid to it; society seems
calloused, and possibly, the only way in
which shamming can be made unpopular
is to show that it is unprofitable. To
show that shamming and shams are also
n very bad taste, as well as being dis
honest, would be quite easy; but it seems
as though the high road to man's reason
lies through the pocket. Shams are un
economical in most instances. The de
sire to appear better than facts warrant,
leads, in nearly every case, to a sacrifice
of some cardinal merit. Thus, the tex

The Turkish Generals.
General James W. Forsyth, oi Lieu-tenant-General
Sherman's staff, has in
his possession a number of finely execu
ted photographs of distinguished Turkish
generals. General Forsyth procured the
pictures while traveling in Europe with
his chief, during the Franco-Prufsian
war, when the American officers had a
good look at nearly every army of the
older world. According to the portraits,
the Turks are a very intellectual looking
lot of fellows, except that the beauty ot
their facial organs is much impaired, by
the use of black coffee, strong enough to
float an iron-clad, tobacco, and, not in

of all groups were brought about by the

that in short, the elevation of all the
sedimentary strata along the base of the
mountains was a comparatively modern
event. Careful study of the formation
of the Cathedral rock, and other like

Prerequisites of Success.
Integrity of character and truth in the
inner man are prerequisites of success in
any calling, and especially so in that of
the merchant. These are attributes
which never fail to command respect and
win admiration. No one fails to appre
ciate them, and if they "do not pay" in
the vulgarsenseof the phrase, they bring
an amount of satisfaction and peace to
the owner that all the wealth of Crcesus
could not yield.
. There is no better stock in trade than
these principles ; no capital goes so far or
pays so well, or is so exempt from bank
ruptcy and loss. When known, they
give credit and ' confidence, and in the
hardest of times will honor your paper
in bank. They gpve you an unlimited
capital to do business upon, and every
body will endorse your paper, and the
general faith of mankind will be you
will not fail. Let every young man,
upon-commencing business, look well to
these indispensable elements of success,
and defend them as he would the apple
of his eye. If inattentive and reckless
here, he will imperil everything. Bank
ruptcy in character is seldom repaired in
an ordinary lifetime. A man may suf
fer in reputation and recover; not so the
man who suffers in character.
Be just and truthful. Let these be
the ruling and predominating principles
of your life and the reward will be cer
tain, either in the happiness they bring
to your own bosom, or the success which
will attend upon all your business opera
tions in life, or both. American Manufacturer.
Growth of Indian Civilization.
New York Evening Post : Although
we have heard more of Indian hostilities
than of Indian civilization recently,
evidence is not wanting that the red
men will adapt themselves to the peace
ful walks of life if they are encouraged
to do so. In proof of this, Mr. William
H. Lyon, one of the board of Indian
commissioners, furnishes from the report
of the board, which is not yet printed,
the following statistics, showing the
present condition of the two hundred
and sixty-six thousand Indians in the
United States, compared with their con
dition eighty years ago :

Had the results of peaceful pursuits in
agencies which have not been disturbed
by hostile outbreaks been given sepa
rately, the advancement would appear
still more encouraging. With secretary
Schurz at the head of the interior de
partment, and the consequent improve
ment in the management of Indian
affairs which is certain to follow, the

Iron Cross Ties.
The great and increasing cost of wooden
railway cross-ties is directing the atten
tion of managers in two directions to
the cultivation of more durable timber,
and to the use of iron. We have alluded
to the fact that iron tjes are being tried
on the Central Pacific Railway. A
treatise has just been published in Eng
land, setting forth the great advantages
of wrought-iron in the construction ot
the permanent way for railways. The
author argues its superiority over timber
and points out the collateral advantage
that its adoption would be the signal for
a revival of activity in the iron districts,
whose stagnation has seriously affected
the railway interest. He recommends
Hill's system, which is already adopted
on a thousand miles of rail, and he states
that the sleepers have been contracted
for in Germany at about 6 per ton.
The system, it is further claimed, is sim
ple, exact and economical. Its main
tenance costs 'about one-third that of the
ordinary permanent way. The guage is
maintained under violent strains, and all
its parts are of unlimited durability,
with the exception of the rail itself.
Another recommendation is increased
security of,traffic, no perishable parts
being used in construction. The system
has found great favor on the continent,
where many of the great lines adopt it.
Why Cities are Warm.
It is a matter of very common observa
tion that large cities are in general
warmer than the country around them
This efl'ect is, in a great measure, caused
by the interruption of the sweep of the
winds : .yet as trees lnieriere witn wina
ouite as effectually as buildings, th
interior of a forest should be as much
warmed by this cause as is the heart o
a great city. But the heat given out by
the fuel burned in a city, and by its in
habitants (including the loweranimals)
is by no means to be disregarded in such
estimates. President Eaton, of the
Indon meteorological society, calculate
that the consumption of coal in I)ndon
five million tons per year within a sur
face of one hundred and eighteen square
miles would raise the temperature of a
stratum of air one hundred feet thick
over that whole area of two and one-half
degrees Fahrenheit every hour. A Ue
cided rise in the average temperature at
Greenwich observatory has been recorded
in a series of yeari, nd is be'.ieved to be
due to the increase of buildings and pop
ulation in the vicinity. It has frequently
been asserted, and is a matter of popular
belief, that settlement and a growth of
tODulation have modified the climate of
manv localities in the United states
but trustworthy statistics on this point
are not yet attainable.

Wanted to Share the Blessing-.
A little bright-eyed three year-old was
seated in his high chair at the dinner
table. Mamma had arranged the little
uneasv. while for a moment his spright-
line8s and fun had made him the observed
ot the whole family, bhe had placed
him snugly at the table, pinned on his
bib, and succeeded in getting the little
mischievous hn1s auiet and making him
hush! when his father proceeded to ask
the blessing. While this was in progress
our little chubby made a discovery. It
was, that all the plates were in ne pile
at " papa's place, and. as it seemed to
him, were put there to get the benefit
of the solemn ceremony, bo, scarcely
waiting for the "Amen," he bell out
his own plate in both bands, raying,

A panacea, or " cur-all," is one of the
myths of the age of superstition. Dr. Ii. V.
Pierce does not recommend any one or even
bis whole list of standard remedies as ad
equate -to cure every disease.- For severe
lingering coughs, bronchial, throat, and
chronic lung diseases,he believes his Golden
Medical Discovery is unsurpassed, but it will
not cure you if your lung are half wasted by
consumption. The Discovery not only ex
ercises a potent influence over pulmonary
affections, by reason of its pectoral proper
ties, but possesses also the most valuable al
terative or blood-cleansing properties, and is
therefore a sovereign remedy in blood end
skin affection. But while it will cure scrof
ulous and other ulcers or sores, blotches,
pimples and eruptions, it will not cure can
cer, nor does its manufacturer claim any
such merit for it as is done by proprietors of
other blood-cleansing medicines, who dis
honestly try to deceive the afflicted into the
belief that their preparations will accom
plish impossibilities. By reason of its real
intrinsic merit it has a sale surpassing that of
any other blood and cough medisine.
