echoed a constant refrain in her heart
though the lips were silent. It seemed
alreatly months since lie went away.
The doctor plunged into his practice
with feverish ardor. It came as a God
send to divert his thoughts. The viru
lent cases in thle town increased rapid
ly. For the first time the destroying
angel of pestilence had invaded this
:peaceful valley. The little hospital
soon overflowed. There was urgent
need of nurses. Solitary eases of self
sacrifice, displayed by contrast the
egotism of human ne: ar'e in its
appalling nakedness. The general
motto was "Let hinm save hinm

utmost, his heart wrur by the spec.

only anxious faces. M1arianne made no

a look of str'ange foreboding in her
eyes. Ivan i'n his bewilderment broke

believed every half hour that she had
an attack of the murderous fever, and
ran howling to her mistress. She
wanted the doctor constantly on hand,
and did not see why he could not pass
his whole timne in the vicinity of hexr
kitchen. Why should he run after
strangers and leave his own household
in the lurch? Arnim, at the incessant
entreaty of his cousin, had prescribed
drops as a preventive. She scarce al
lowed the vial out of her hand. Saeri
ficial clouds of smoke arose from every
room in the house but the doctor's
study. Here, at his express command,
the wild waves of Marianne's fumiga

A woma. rmeriv our .ave i row
our cook. A:)out eighteen months
:be became sickly and had a cough and
eoa f cinled to bed, and it was thought
:h.:t she had consumption. The treat
meIt by physicians failed to give relief.
In December, 1814, a node or knot the
size of a goose egg formed just above
the oit of the stomach, which, when
lhmed, discharged matter for eight or
nine onths. One of these also formed
na-cr her arm, and three on her back,
whib discharged matter for -. consider
able time. For six months of this time
she confined to the house, and most of
the time in bed. The stomach often re
fused food, by rejecting what she had
eaten. She used a great deal of medi
cine. but failed to be cured. I bought
one bottlu of your B. B. B. (made in
Atlanta, Ga,) and gave it to her and she
commt.nced to improve. I then bought
and gave her three bottles more, andtshe
continued to improve, and in two
months' time her cough had ceased, her
constitution st:engthened, appetite and
digestion gCod. all discharges ceased,
Lodes or knots disappeared and she went
to work apparently healthy and fattened
:S woman had a married sister of
near the satae age who was affected in
precisely the same way and about the
same time. The had nodes or i:uots on
pit of her stomach, back, etc. She did
not take any B. B. B. and the node on
her stomach ate through to the cavity.
She continued on the decline and wasted
away, and finaliv died.
These were two terrible cases of blood
poison-one used B. B. D. and was
speedily cured-the other did not use it
and died. It is most assuredly a most
wonderful blood puritier. I refer to
mracrhant of thi town Yonrs truly,
