Dn. Radway : I have had Ovarinn Tumor in

"there was no holp for it." I tried every thing
tnai was recommenoca. imr. nothing neipeo me,
I saw your Resolvent, and thought I would try
It, but had no faith in it. because I had suffered
for twelve years. I took six bottles of the Re
solvent, one box of Radwny's Pills, and used
two bottles of your Bendy Relief; and there is
not a sign of a tumor to be seen or felt, and I
feel better, smarter, happier than I havofor
twelve years. The worsttumor was in the left

Earthquakes. Murder of Nun-Fearful
Disclosures in a Monastery.
A terrible scene has taken
place at a monastery at Paler
mo. The facta aa they have
reached us are as follows: For
some months past rumors have
been flying about to the effect
that a nun (a young lady of
great expectations and exqui
site beauty) bad been attached
to her father confessor, he be
ing one of the brethren of the
monastery. Thither, it would
appear, she was secretly con
veyed, and kept in close con
finement for a long period.
bhe gave birth to a child, the
result of her illicit intercourse
with the monk,. The child
was quiokly disposed of, and
the unhappy mother was even'
more cruelly treated. Not
knowing very well how to hush
up the scandal, several of the
monks determined upon de
stroying her during the tem
porary absence of her para
mour. lhey passed a cord
round her neck, and dragged
her along the floor until she
was strangled. Her scream
ing, however, attracted the at
tention of some1 Greek sailors,
who effected an entrance into
the monastery. Three of the
hoh fathers paid the penalty
of their crime. - One received
a death woud from the sword
of the first sailor, another was
shot through the lungs, and the
third received several wounds
on the head while he was in
the act of retreating, from
which he has since died.
High Culture of the Strawberry.
'.. berry. . ,
, , At the recent Fruit Con
vention in this city, says the
Practical Farmer (Philadel
phia,) there was considerable
discussion as to the most prof
itable mode of growing straw
berries, whether in hills, or
rows, or in beds. The hill
sy8tem,and taking off the run,
ders, was spoken of as adapt- .
ed for small gardens and ama
teur cultivators. .One speker
announced that Knox, of Pitts
burg, grew successfully on this
plan f apr, but at the, tirae ,
of his visit to his grounds, bed
culture was the only kind seen.
This is the mode usually adopt
ed by large growers for mar
ket. E. Satterthwaite, of
brings the finest size and qual
ity of strawberries to the Phil
adelphia market, detailed his
practice of setting out the
f)lants in contiguous rows, and
etting the runners grow to
gether, so as to make beds
about three feet wide the first
season. In the fall he gives a
good top-dressing of manure,
which acts both as a protect
ive mulch and as a fertilizer.
Tt inquiry of a member: "Does
not this promote a large growth
of weeda?" he replied, it does;
but the heavy increase of
crop3 pays for the labor of
eradicating thera. He had
grown 300 bushels to the acre,
which returned gross $2,000.
He plants every year, the best
crop always being the second
season . from planting, after
which the product annually di
minisnes; and it was considered
more profitable to plant new
beds than to retain the old
A Burglar's Blunder.
It becomes ouc painful duty
to record one of the most ex
traordinary burglaries in the
history of Burlington criminal
sensationalism. It opens a
new era in the system of mid
night calls, and teaches a beau
tiful lesson of the costliness of
crime. At a dark and early
hour yesterday morning the
dog appertaining to one of our
most prominent citizens indulg
ed in a big noise, which, was
followed by the slamming of
the gate, and the sound of rap
indly retreating footsteps. The
good man of the house, on ex
amining the field of the short
but decisive fray, was made
glad by the discovery of a roll
containing a considerable
amount of money, It is con
jectured that some one pocket
served the burglar both- as
bank and arsenal, and that, iu
pulling his pistol iu compli
ment to the dog, he pulled al
so his greenbacks. Our friend
suggests that he will be glad
to receive such calls, at the
same price, at all times; and,
in order to secure the patron
age of other like generous gen
tlemen, he agrees to add to the
attraction of his show the
