Divination by Means of Slieep's Bones.
M. G. Perrofc speaks, in his "Mo-moires
dJArcheologie d'Epigraphie, et
d'Histoire," of divination by sheep's
bpnes.. Thisraethod of penetratingjthe
secrets cf we fuTure" is largely resorted''
to at the present lime, and the Greek
peasant has confidence in it as absolute
as that -which his ancestors regarded
the examination of the entrails of a
victim. Thio pruoliCo is,
no longer restricted to diviners and
sorcerers only; on solemn occasions
each man may act as his own augur on
behalf of himself and his family. I
remember once when I was returning
from an excursion into Achaia near
Aigion, I was obliged to Rtop in the
evening in the outskirts of Mourla, at a
peasant's house where I asked hospitality
for the night. He took me into a room
where his wife and his four children
were.Jaeginning their evening meal, of
which he invited me to partake. I think
it was a few days after Easter, and the
-food-set- before -us-was mutton. , The
children had just begun to talk freely,
and conversation was becoming
all of a sudden, my host
. flung something violently on the ground,
struck his forehead, and as I looked at
his wife, seeking in her eyes an explanation,
she burst into tears. A young girl
of. twenty was lying on a rug at the end
of-the room, in, the shade; I had not
observed her.L She had recently fallen
ill. Her father, turning bis eyes toward
her, picked up the object he had thrown
down and handed it to me. It was the
blade-bone of the sheep. "You see
nothing, .perhaps," he said to me:
"nevertheless, it is written there that
my daughter is going to die; she will
not recover." I endeavored to dissuade
him from this idea, but in vain ; all the
family were piunged into despair, and
gave way to the wildest grief. As fate
would have it, the young .girl . actually
did -die a few days afterword.

to the prediction ofvtfio

been purchased by the person who eats
it, and kept alive for three days in his
house; otherwise the presage applies to
the person who has sold the animal.
This superstition was especially cherished
by the brigands, but it is to be presumed
that they found some way of eluding its
restrictive conditions, for they are not in
the habit of purchasing their sheep, and
they 1 have no houses to" keep them ' in.

Kendall's Spavin Cure.
The Most sJucccssfnl Remedy f ver discovered,
as it is certain it its eflects ana does
not blister. READ PROOF BELOW.
From Rev P.N. GRANGER.
Presiding Elder of the St. Albans District .
fcT. AX.BANS, Vt Jan., 20, 1880.
Dr. B. J. Kendall & Co., Gents: In reply to
your letter I will say that ray experience with
Kendall's Spavin Cure' has been very satisfactory
indeed. Three or four years ago I procured
a bottle ol your agent, and with It, cured
a horse ol lameness caused by a spavin. Last
season my horse became Very lame and I
turned him out for a lew weeks when he became
better, but when I put him on the road
he grew worse, when discovered that a
was forming, I procured a bottle ol Ken-dell's
Snavin Cure and with less than a bottle
cured him fo that he is not lame, neither can
tUe bunch be found. Respectfully yours.
P. N. GRAINGER.
Perseverance Will Tell.
Stkougiiton, Mass., March 10, 180.
B. J. Kendall it Co Gents: In justice to
you and myself, I think I ouuhT to let you
know that I have removed two bone spavins
with Kendall's Spavin Cure,' one very large
one, don't know how long the spavin hau
been there. I have ovmed the horse eight
months. Jt took me four months to take the
large one oft and two for the small one. I have
used ten bottles. The horse Is entirely well,
not at all stiff, and no bunch to be seen or felt.
This is a wonderful medicine. It is a new thing
here, but if it does for all what it has done for
me Its will be very great.
Respectfully yours, Chas. E. Parkeii.
Kendall's Spavin Cuke issureiri Its effects,
mild in its action as It does not blister, yet it is

which a liniment is used for man or beast. It
is now known to be the best liniment for man
ever used, acting ralld and yet certain in its

we think gives positive proof of its virtues. No
