Once, on a burning desert's sands,
With lips afire, there dying lax
One who toward home, in distant lands,
Had striven a weary way.
Beside him fell his empty gourd.
Its last cool drop of water gone:
His hands held, wildly clutched, the hoard
Of gold that years of strife had won.
With frenzied eyes to Cod he tinned
And wept and prayed a fever-crazed,
Wild plea for water; but still burned
The unanswering sky that o'er him blazed.
?"Allah, thou heed'st not my prayer!
Must thou my treasure, 'ere thou'lt hear.'"
Then through the arid desert air
His gold be scattered far and near.
Tain, vain?not all his gold could bring
Tho water that his lips had prayed.
And so he died, faint murmuring
Of streams where he in boyhood played.
Ah, little better than him dead
On fierce Sahara' arid plain,
Are those who fairest pathways tread
With hearts whose dearest wish is vain.
Who dream by day and weep by night
For some one gift they ne'er can hold,
Though they the glitter and the light
Of earth's supremest treasures fold.
E'en as it is a King will sigh
Beneath bis. crown, and envy much
The laughter in a peasant's eye
And wish his crown were changed to such.

James H. Ilion died here this morning
at 3 o'clock of heart disease, and the
announcement of the sad event, which
?was first made .early this morning, was
a shock to the community. Yesterday
he was as well as usual, attending to
his professional work. He had some
company at dinner celebrating the an
niversary of his marriage. Tt was ob
served, that ho was in most excellent
spirits,- conversing freely. About <5
o'clock he was seized with a severe
pain, which proved to be due to paraly
sis of the heart. His physician was
among the guests, and all means for
Jiis relief were used, but death ensued
?at 3 o'clock this morning. In the inter
val he conversed freely, giving direc
tions as to his funeral, und stating cer
tain dispositions that he wished made
of his estate. At times he suffered
greatly, but the end was peace

Kx-Gov. A. H. Stephens' Cousin.
I am first cousin of the late Ex-Governni
Alexander 11. Stephens, and have been
postal clerk on different railroads since
lHfjS'. For ten years I have been a .sufferer
from a cancer on my face, which grew
worse until the discharge of matter became
profuse and very offensive. I became
thoroughly disgusted with blood purifiers
and pronounced them humbugs, as I had
tried many without relief.
Finally I was induced to use B. B. 13.,
which was about the 1st of February, and
continued its use until the latter part of
April. The offensive discharge decreased
at once and the hardness around the cancer
disappeared. It improved my general
health and I rapidly gained llcsh and
strencth. The discharge gradually de
creased and the cancer became less and less
in size until nothing remains except a star
to tell the talc af a once dangerous cancer.
All who have seen me since 1 have com
menced the use of B. B. B. bear testimony
of my great improvement, and the scar on
my face shows that it cured the cancer. I
find that B. B. B. conies squarely up to
what it is recommended, and I cannot say
too much in praise of this wonderful medi
cine. I luve tried them nil but B. P.. B.
stands at the top as a blood purifier.
The above is copied from thu Athens,
(Ga.) Banner-Watchman, being the volun
teer language of Mr. .lames A. Cieer,
which Editor Gantt indorses:
"Mr. Greer is an honest, uprigh! citizen
of Athens, who had a bail cancer, and his
numerous rriends thought that lie could
not live very long, as the cancer was grad
ually sapping the foundation of his con
stitution, but now looks well and hearty.
". Agni list IS.
Several physicians have pronounced my
disease blood poison, caused by paint or
lead in the paint, but they could not cure
me. Last summer I used eighteen bottles
of a largely advertised blood medicine,
which did me no more good than so much
1 have used only two bottles of B. B. B.
and am proud to say that I have received
greater benefit from them than from the
eighteen, and am now rapidly recovering.
There is no question about the superiority
of B. B. B. overall blood remedies.
