' . ' "Darn It."
They had a terrible time at a wedding
tip at Petaluma, and which only goes
,to show how the smallest draVback will
sometimes take the stiffening out of the
It seems that the ceremony waB a very
grand affair, indeed. There were eight
-bridesmaids, and the church was crowded
from pit to dome, as the dramatic
critics would say- But, when they got
to the proper place in the ceremony,
and the groom began feeling around for
the ring, he discovered that it wasn't on
hand. After the minister had scowled
at the miserable wretch for a while the
latter detected that the magio circlet
had slipped through a hole in his pocket
and worked down into his boot. He
.communicated the terrible fact in a
whisper to the bride, who turned deadly
pale, and was only kept from fainting
by the reflection that they would inevitably
cut the strings of her satin corsage
in case she did. "--
" "Why don't you produce the ring ? "
whispered the bride's big brother,
hoarsely, and feeling for his pistol, under
the impression that the miserable
.man-was about to bock out
"I can't. It's in my boot," explained
the groom under his breath, his very
hair, meanwhile, turning red with mortification.
" Try and fish it out somehow hurry
up," mumbled the minister behind his
"I'll try," gasped the victim, who was
rather stout ; and he put one foot on the
chancel rail, pulled up his troufiers leg
and began making spasmodic jabs for
the ring with his forefinger. The minister
motioned to the organist to squeeze
in a few notes to fill up the time, while
a rumor rapidly went through the con-
fregation to the effect that a telegram
ad just arrived proving that the groom
had four wives living in the East
"I I can't reach it," groaned the
half-married man in agony. "It won't
"Sit down and take your boot off,
you fool 1" hissed the bride's mother,
while the bride herself moaned piteously
and wrung her powdered hands.
, There was nothing left, so the sufferer
sat down on the floor and began to
"wrestle with his boot, which
hew and tight, while a fresh rumor got
under way to the effect that the groom
was beastly tight and insisted on paring
As the boot came finally off its crushed
wearer endeavored, unsuccessfully, to
hide a trade-dollar hole iu the heel of his
stocking ; noticing which, the parson,
who was a humorous sort of a
said, grimly :
"You seem to be getting married just
in time, my young friend.' And the
ceremony proceeded with the party of
the first part standing on one leg, trying
to hide his well-ventilated foot under
the tail of his coat, and appropriately
muttering, "Darn it I" at short intervals.

feT. Albans, Vt., Jan., 20, lfcSO.
Dr. B. J. Kendall & Co., Gents : In reply to
your letter I will say tbat my expeiience with
rKendalls Spavin Cure' has been very satisfactory
indeed. Three or four years ago I pro-cm
ed a bottle oi your agent, and with it, cured
ti horse oi lameness caused by a spavin. Last
season my horse became very lame and J
turned him out for a lew weeks when Jie became
better, but when 1 put 'him on the road
he grew worse, when I discovered That a
was forming, I procured a bottle of Ken-dell's
Spavin Cure and with less than a battle
cured him so that he Is not lame, neither can
the bunch be found. Respectfully yours.

B.J.Kendall & Co., Gents: In justice to
you and myself, I think I ought to let you
know that I have removed two bone spavins
with 'Kendall's Spavin Cure,' one very Urge
one, don't know how Jong the spavin had
been there. I have owned the horse eight
months. It took me foui months to take the
large One ofl 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 fpr
me its will be very great.
Respectfully yours, Chas. E. Parkek.
