The Stund.ird. ;
.A gentleman! now a Presbyterian
minister in Npw York City, but for
merly an ollicci on" Stonewall Jack
son's stalf, t. hi the following story:
He said at the tinio of the second
battle of bull ltun, the whole South
ern country was quivering with ex
citement, the telegraph wires being
down, and the people being anxious
to learn the result of the battle which
they knew had just been fought.
There was, of course, the greatest
excitement in Lexington, Va., the
home of Stonewall Jackson, since it
was known that he was engaged in
the battle, and intelligence of the re
sult had not yet been received. l?ut
there was a letter at the postoflie ad
dressed in lienerai Jackson's own
handwriting to his pastor, the Rev.
Dr. White. The good minister took
out the letter, the people thronged
around him, and putting him on a
dry-goods box.insisted that he should
read this letter which had come fresh
from the battle field. With tremb
ling hands he tore it open, and when
he could sufficiently control his feel
ings, read Bomewhat as follows.

Not a word about the battle which
was pending. Even then he was not
forgetful that there' was a greater bat
tle still the strife between truth and
error, between Christianity aud
heathendom. It would be well for
us if we had such rugged principle in
giving regularly for tho furtherance
of the gospel that we would not let
the most important and clamorous
considerations hinder and thwart our
endeavors to serve him whose claims
Don't Mention The Briers.
It is not only a wise and happy
thing to make the best of life, and al-
ways look on the blight side, for one's
own sake, but it is a blessing to others'.
Fancy a man forever telling his fami-
ly how much they cost him! A little
sermon on this subject was uncon4
sciously preached by a child one day.
A man met a little fellow on the
road carrying a basbet of blackberries,
and said to him, "Sammy, where
did yeu get such nice berries?"
"Over there, sir, in the briers!"
"Won't your mother be glad to see
you come home with a uasketlul 01
such nice, ripe fruit?"
"Yes, sir," said Sammy, "she al
ways seems glad when I hold up the
berries, and I don't tell her any thing
about the briers in my feet."
The man roue on. Sammy's re
marks had given him a lesson, and
he resolved that henceforth he
would try to hold up the berries and
say nothing aoout the briers.
The Voyage of Life.
As a means of influence, the habit
of bringing faults and weaknesses to
the front cannot be too strongly con-
demned. It kills sympathy and fos
ters a repellant attitude that rejects
all overtures,however well intention-
ed they may be. it actually increas
es the very evils it deplores by keep
ing them constantly in view. Pars
ents and teachers often make this fa
tal mistake. Anxious to cure a fault,
but thoroughly unphilosophical in
their methods, they harp contin
ually upon it and keep reminding the
child of its presence, its enormity,
and its dangers, until at length he
comes to regard it as a necessary
part of himself.
An experienced educator says that
an infalliabie way to make a boy ir-
reclaimably stupid is to assure him
constantly that he is so; and the
same thing is equally true of most
other faults. Only through good can
we produce good ; and if we would
truly neip or . improve another, we
must find out the best that Is in him,
and from that point must we try to
develop that which is lacking. Let
us ever bear in mind that goodness
and truth go hand in hand, and that
to discover, to welcome, and to em
phasize the one is the surest way to
attain the other in its fullness.

Life is beset by evils and changes
on every side. From birth to man
hood and from manhood until old
ace eternal vigilance is the price of
health. There is one remedy that
has saved many a rickety, headach
ing, blood poisoned, dyspeptic mor
tal to a life of usefulness and robust
health. It is known as Dr. Bull's
Sarsaparilla and it is a Sarsaparilla
that is a Sarsaparilla. .Not a
thousand doses of molasses and
water for a dollar, but a concentrated
essence of the best virtues of sarsapa
rilla and other alterative herbs. It
heals, it cures where other Sarsaprilla
and blood remedies have no
more effect than so much stagnant
water. If your system craves an al
terative, if you value life you do
yourself a great injustice if you fail to
try this excellent remedy. Demand
it 01 your druggists and take no
other. Sidney Times.
Shrewd Business Men.
The publishers of the New York
Times were asked by a business man
why it was that so many business
men in large cities subscribed for
good country newspapers and was
answered as follows: "A wholesale
merchant in New York City, who
had become rich at the business says
his rule is, that whenever he sells a
bill of goods on credit, to immedi
ately subscribe for the local paper of
his debtor. So long as he advertises
liberally in his county paper, he was
satisfied, but as soon as he began to
contract his advertising space he took
the iact as evidence that there was
trouble ahead, invarably went for the
debtor. He said that the man who
Is too poor to make his business
known is to jwor to do business. The
withdrawal of an advertfsement is
evidence of weakness men are not
slow to act upon."

IJocaccio was thirty years of age

After this time he became a most

Dr. Johnson applied himself to the

To the Great South American Medicine Co. :
Pear Gents : I desire to say to you that I
have suffered for many years with a very seri
ous disease of the stomach and nerves. I tried
every medicine I could hear of but nothing
done me any appreciable good until I was ad
vised to try your Great South Amcricaa Nervine
Tonic and Stomach and Liver Cure, and since
using several botUes of it I must say that I am
surprised at its wonderful powers to cure tho
stomach and general nervous system. If every
one knew the value of this remedy as I do, you
would not be able to supply the demand.

Mr. Solomon Bor.d. a member of tho Society
of Friends, of Darlington, Ind., says: "I have
used twelve bottles of The Great South Ameri
can Nervine Ton ic an d Stomach and Liver Cure
and I consider that every bottle did for me one
hundred dollars worth of good, because I have
not had a good night's sleep for twenty years
on account of irritation, pain, horrible dreams,
and general nervous prostration, which has
been caused by chronic indigestion and dys
pepsia of the stomach and by a broken down
cond ition of my nervous system. But now I can
lie do wn and sleep ull n ight as sweetly as a baby,
and I feel like a sound man. I do not think
there has ever been a medicine introduced into
this country which will at all compare with
this Nervine Tonic as a cure for the stomach."
A SWORN CURE FOR ST. VITUS'S DANCE OR CHOREA.
Crawfordsville, Ind., May 19, 1886.
My daughter, twelve years old, had been af
flicted for several months with Chorea or St.
Vitus's Dance. She was reduced to a skeleton,
could not walk, could not talk, could not swal
low anything but milk. I had to handle her
like an infauU Doctor and neighbors gave her
up. I commenced giving her the South Ameri
can Nervine Tonic: the effects were very sur
prising. In three days she was rid of the ner
vousness, and rapidly improved. Four bottles
cured her completely. I think the South
American Nervine the (rrandest remedy ever
discovered, and would recommend it to every
one. Mrs. W. 8. Ensmingeb.
