Platform of the National Prohibition
Party.
Adopted at the Chicago Convention, Sept'r.
2, 1869.
Whereas, Protection and allegiance are
reciprocal duties, and every citizen
who yields obedience to the just com
mands of his government is entitled
to the full, complete and perfect pro
tection of that government in the en
joyment of personal security, person
al liberty, and private property, and
Whereas, The traffic in intoxicating
drinks greatly impairs the personal
security and personal liberty of large
masses of citizens, and renders pri
vate property insecure, and
Whereas, The existing parties are
hopelessly unwilling to adopt an ad
equate policy on this question, there
fore we, in national convention as
enabled, as citizens of this free re
public, sharing in the duties and re
pponsibilities of its government, in
the discharge of a solemn doty we
owe to our country and our race,
unite in the following declaration of
rrinciples :
. That while we acknowledge the
pure patriotism and profound states
manship of those patriots who laid
broad and deep the foundations of this
government, securing at once the
rights of the States severally and tbeir
inseparable union by the Federal Con
stitution, we would not merely garnish
the sepulchers of our republican fath
ers, but we do hereby renew our sol
emn pledge of fealty to the imperish
able principles of civil and religious
liberty embodied in the Declaration of
American Independence and our Fed
eral Constitution.
2. 1 hat the traffic in intoxicating
beverages is a dishonor to christian
civilization, inimical to the best inter
ests of society, a political wrong of nn
equaled enormity, subversive of the
ordinary objects of government, not
capable of being regulated or restrain
ed by any system of license whatever,
but imperatively demanding for its
suppressioneffective legal prohibition
both ly State and National Legisla
tion. I
3. That in view of this, and inasmuch
as the existing political parties either
oppose or ignore this great and para
mount question, and absolutely refuse
to do anything toward the suppression
of the rum traffic, which is robbing the
nation of its brightest intellects, des
troying its material prosperity, and ra
pidly undermining its very founda
tions, we are driven by an imperative
sense of duty to sever our connection
with these political parties, and to or
ganize ourselves into a National Prohi
bition Party, having for its primary,
object the entire suppression of the
traffic in intoxicating drinks.
4. That while we adopt the name of
the National Prohibition Party, as ex
pressive of our primary object, and
while we denounce all repudiation of
the public dbt, and pledge fidelity to
the principles of the Declaration of In
dependence and the Federal Constitu
tion, we deem it inexpedient to give
prominence to other political issues.
5. That a Central Executive Commit
tee of one from each State and Terri
tory and the District of Columbia, be
appointed by the Chair, whose duty it
piall be to take such action as in their
judgment will best promote the in
terests of the party.
Backbones Weak.
The Republican governor of Ohio
is said to be a man of one leg. That
is no great disability. Many a man
bas cade a successful "run" who
bad do backbone. Resides perpaps
the platform is such that an honest
man can stand upon it as well with
one leg as with two. Give us one
limbed eatrdidates in Massachusetts
lor a while, if they nay only be in
possession of osseous articulations
in the spinal regions. Boston Tern
Iterance Press. "
We wonld say to the Press that
the platforms of the two old par
ties in this State are as dumb on the
question of temperance, as though
there was not a grog-shop in our
border, and not a single instance
of crime or misery growing out of
the rum traffic. The lack of back
bone is the "trouble with the candi
dates, except the out-and-out whis
ky and lager beer nominees, who
have a sun spinal coinmn determin
ed to fight against anything that
squints towards, or proposes to in
terfere with "good beer," or "na
tional German custom?," the liber
ty to make drankards, &c. Gener
al Noyes lost a leg in defense of his
country, against an organized sys
tem ot ev:l, but be has not as ye'
evinced the slightest disposition to
attack another great system of
wrong. The political managers of

ef twenty-five or thirty years ago
did "Abolition. JLbey bow to rum
and lager beer just as tumblyand
cringingly an ever did old Whigs
and Democrats to the slave power
They will only have backbone
when the temperance Vetera shall
give them poietive assurance that
they will not, in any sense, be tri-
aed who, rroniomon .ra.
Tbjs Prohibitionists of Pennsyl
vania have issued a call for a State
Convention for the purpose of nom
inating a State ticket. Among the
signer to the call, we notice the
nameofHuvh D. MoGaw, formerly
ol Ibis f lacv.
The Marietta Regular calls the Re
publican ticket put in nomination here
the 28th a good ticket. Right Regis
ter! It is a ticket every Republican in
the county can support. It is com
posed of tried men. It is composed of
true men. It is not made cpei adven
turers, expediency men or political
squirts. It i not made up of men who
carrv their nolitics in their nockets.
The past record of the men who com
pose it, is all tnat is needed as a guar
antee of their future political stead
fastness and integrity. MeConneUville
Herald, ef tlielith.
Is not the above decidedly cool?
The Morgan County Republican
ticket composed of "tried men, true
men, not made np of men who car
ry their politics in their pockote,
men whose?past political records
will guarantee their future poliliral
steadfastness and integrity 1"
Wheughll The Herald -editors
must have a pretty b&rd check to
publish the above extract. Lotus
look at some of these ' 'tried, true
men":
Stanton, two years ago, was bo
much of a Prohibitionist tbai bo
would not accept the .Republican
nomination until be was urged to
do bo by the Prohibitionists.
McGrew, two years ago, was so
diggusted'with the Republican par
ty that lie signed a paper pledging
himself to vote the Prohibition
ticket.
Roberts well we wont say any
thing more about Roberts, lie
does not carry bis politics in his
pocket, to be sure, but be does like
bread and butter. "H'ru, General
Garfield, I'm happy to meet you.
I'm a brotber-In-law of Hon. W. P.
Sprague, candidate for Cengress."
Bat, Havener, our own rose-scented
Gas., the roan who bolted the
Republican County Convention two
years ago, the man the Herald so
bitterly denounced as a bolter two
years ago, the man who accepted
the nomination of the Pec pie's
County Convention and defeated
the regular Republican nominee two
years ago, the man who voted the
Democratic State ticket two years
ago, the roan the Court House Ring
did ne.t dare refuse te nominate at
its late County Convention for fear
be would again bolt bas(he not
been "tried" and found so "true"?
We wondor what kind of sien the
Herald thinks the Republicans of
Morgan are composed of, if they
can all support a bolter. Is it a
principle of the Republican party
to reward bolter? Will the JZer
ald answer?
JCDGI D. C. PlNKERTON tells US
that the Muskiugum Valley Repub
lican that told us that Senator Sher
man dispensed wines and brandies
to bis friends, at a Columbus
hotel, during the time of
the late Republican J -Convention,
now says that be was not in Sher
man's room at the time stated, and
that be knows nothing about it.
We refrain from giving the name
of this Republican until we can see
him and understand exactly what
he does now say from bis own lips.
He made the charge against Sher
man 011 more than one occasion,
and to other persons than ourselt;
and, if be charged falsely, it is due
to bberraan that we make it known,
and, should such prove to be the
case, we will do io. We are not cf
that class that are disposed to give
publicity to false reports against
any political opponent; and, should
it prove that we have done so in
any instance, we will as readily
stamp such report as false, and
condemn the faUifier, as we would
bold it up to the light it true. It
is possible for a newopaper man to
be imposed upon by those in whose
word he bas confidence, cud should
it prove that we have been in this
case, or any other case, the public
shall kifow it.
Th Morgan Ceunty Democrat
ic Convention, according to J. M. G.,
will be held about the floth of Au
gust. D. C. Pinkerton say's the lie-
publicans will have a grand, rally
in McConnelsvillo about the middle
of September. It is expected that
Gen. JNoyes will bo the chiel orator
of the day.
Thi Deinoiratio State Executive
Committee have announced that
there will be a Democratic Mass
Meeting in McConnelsvillo on Alon
day afternoon. Sept. 25th. it will
be addressed by Col. J. II Cocker-
ill, of Adams County, the Demo
cratic candidate for State Auditor,
St. Clair Kelly, of St. Clair
ville, Belmont County, is an inde
pendent candidate for Judge of the
Court of Common Pleas, against
Robert E. Chambers, Democrat.
The Woodsfield Spirit, speaking of
thiF, Bars Kelly is nothing but a
Republican, and cannot be anything
else. The Spirit should remember
that Kelly is a good lawyer, and
would make a good Judge.
Ah interviewer writes that Charles
Francis Adams declares he has no in
terest in politics, and will not be a can
didate for office under any circumstan
ces whatever. He declares there are
no new issues before the people, and
politics therefore lose their charm,
except to interested politiciaas. Ex
change.
If Mr. Adams would but remem
ber that thero is a Prohibition par
ty in existence, he would not com
plain of there being no new issues
Dfclore the people. Jiut we sup
pose be, like almost all old politi
cians, has no disposition to under
take tne labor ol building up a
new party; When our party be
comes strong enough tc bold the
ballanco of power, then such men as
Adams will begin to recognize it.
On Monday last a St. Louis (Mo.)
court granted twenty-four divorces,
I he JJemocrat has the following in
its report of the proceedings: While
tbe divorce cases were or. trial a
well known citizen entered one of
the court rooms and looked anx
ion9ly over the large collection of
injured innocence grouped upon
the benches. A lawyer asked him
if he was in search of any one in
particular. "Yes," he replied. "I
am- looking for my wife. I don't
know but that she may slip in here
and get a divorce before I know
anything about it."
Thomas Jefferson's Opinions
of European Sovereigns.
In a letter to John Jay, Jefferson
thus describes the Prince of Wales,
afterward George IV.:
"He has not a single element of
mathematics, 01 natural or moral
philosophy, or ot any other science
on earth, nor has the society he bas
kept been such as to supply the
void ot education. It has been
of the lowest, the most illiterate
and profligate persons of the king
dom, without choice of rank or
mind, and with whom the subjects
of conversation are only hordes,
drinking-matcbcs, bawdy-houses,
and in terms the most vulgar. Tne
young nobility who begin by asso
ciating with him soon leave him,
disgusted by the insupportable pro
fligacy of bis society; ajd Mr. Fox,
who bus been supposed Jus favor
ite, and not overnice in the choice
of company, wonld never keep bis
company habitually. In fact, he
never associated with a man of
sense. He bas not a single idea of
justiee, morality, religion, or of tbe
rights ot men, or any anxiety for
the opinion of the world. He car
ries that indifference for fame so
far that he probably would not be
hurt if he were to lose his throne,
provided be could be assured of
having always meat, horses, and
women."
Many years later he thus gives
his impressions of the characters of
the reigning sovereigns of Europe:
"While in Europe I often amused
myself with contemplating the
characters of the then reigning sov
ereigns of Europe. Louis XVI.
was a fool, of my own knowledge,
and despite of the answers made lor
bim at bis trial. The King of
Spain was a fool; and of Naples, the
same. They passed their lives in
bunting, and dispatched two cour
iers a week one thousand miles to
let each know what game they had
killed the preceding days. The
Kingot Sardinia was a fool. All
these were Bourbons. Tbe Queen
of Portugal, a Braganza, was an
idiot by nature; and so woe tho
King of Denmark. Their sons, as
regents, evcrcised the powets of
government. The King of Prussia,
successor to the great Frederick,
was a mere bog in body as well as
in mind. Gustavus of Sweden and
Joseph of Austria were really cra
zy; and George of England, you
know, was in a straight waist-coat
There remained, then, none but old
Catharine, who Lad been too lately
picked up to have lost her com
mon sense. Io this state Bona
parte found Europe; and it was this
slate of its rulers which lost it with
scarce a struggle. These animals
had become without mind and
powerless; and so will every her
editary moutrch be after a few
generations. Alexander, tbe grand
son of Catherine, is as yet an ex
ception. He is ablo to hold his
own. But be 19 only of tbe third
generation. His race i not yet
worn est. And so endeth the
book ot kings, from all of whom the
Lord delivor us."
The following, " written to John
Adams in IS24, presents Jefferson's
mature estimate of the character of
Napoleon:
"I have just finished rending
O'Meara's 'Bonaparte.' It places
bim on a higher scale of under
standing than 1 had allotted bim.
I had thought bim the greatest of
all military captains but an indif
ferent statesman, and misled by
unworthy passions. The flashes,
however, which escaped from him
in these conversations with O'Mea-
ra prove a mind of great expan
sion, although not of distinct de
velopment and reasoning. He sei
zes results with rapidity and pen
etration, but never explains logic
ally the process of reasoning by
which he arrives at them. This
book, too, makes ns forgot bis atro
cities for a moment in commisera
tion of his sufferings. I will not
say that the authorities of the
world, charged with the care of
their country and people, bad not
a right to confine him for life, as a
lion or tiger, on the principal of
sen-preservation. Thero was no
safety to nations while ho was per
mitted to ream at large. But tbe
putting bim to death in cold blood,
by lingering tortures of mind, by
vexations, insults, and deprivations,
was a degree of - inhumanity to
which the poisonings and tbe as
sassinations of the school of Borgia
and den 0! Marat never attained.
Tbe book proves, also, that nature
had denied bim tbe moral sense,
the first excellence of well organized
man. If he could seriously and
repeatedly affirm that he had rais
ed himself to power without ever
having committed a crime, it prov
ed that he wanted totally the sense
of right and wrong." From
"Thomas Jefferson and his Family,"
by A. H. Guernsey, in Harper's
Magazine for August.
The McConnolsville Herald, of
last week, contained the following:
The South Eastern Independent says:
"A man fell off one oi the Zanesville
bridges in a state of intoxication and
met his death."
How this world is given to lying.
The editor of the above paper seems to
have more information than any one
hereabouts in regard to the man whose
body was found in the river, and as to
the manner he came to his death.
Courier.
We received our information rel
ative tl tbe intoxication of the un
fortunate individual killed by fall
ing off one of the Zanesville bridges,
from one of our most responsible
citisens, who said he was told so
by citizens of Zanesville when he
was in Zanesville on the Fourth of
July. Does tbe Courier know that
the person killed wss not in a state
of intoxication? Before intimating
that we willfully falsified about the
matter, it would be- as well for the
Courier to be able to give our state
ment a positive denial.
The Woodsfield Spirit says:
"Our subscribers think the Spirit
contains more news than any otber
paper published in South Eastern
Ohio." The Spirit's subscribers
must be idiots.
Will the Ohio Statesman let the
people know the expense to tbe
State of the last session of the last
Democratic Legislature ef Ohio,
and also of the last session of the
recent Republican Legislature?
The people of this locality feel an
interest in the matter.-
The True Woman gives as one
reason why woman should not vote
that the tongues of women are ve
ry nimble and vory sharp; tbe
temptation to use tbem in political
strite at every fumily meal during
election time would be great They
would be very saucy, at times very
witty or very sarcastic, and often,
too, very silly. But where, adds
the True Woman, would bo the
feast of family love?
The eight hour law passed by the
Now York Legislature two years
ago, it is stated, is not enforced ac
cording to its spirit by th Com
missioners appointed to erect the
State Reformatory at Elmira. Gov
ernor Hoffman, having bad bis at
tention called to an alleged viola
tion of tbe act, replied that he
cheerfully approved of the law in
question, and that, having doomed
it one' one of peculiar interest and
impor-ance, he had, at the time of
its passage, by proclamation, spec
ially exhorted all persons in official
positions to faithfully carry out its
provisions. He also states that ho
will have a personal conference
with the Commissioners, and do all
in bis power to secure the enforce
ment of the eight hour law, which,
according to the act alluded to, is
made applicable to all work done
on buildings erectod for the State
of New York, and also to work dona
on the canals.
Tnx Cliristian Union is, we fear,
rather "shaky" on the subject of
tbe existence of a personal devil.
To a correspondent, who avows his
own disbelief in tbe arch fiend and
asks for information, the editor
says: "The medieval devil, with
bis impish pranks and jokes, gro
tesque and malignant in equal man
ner, is not found in Scripture, nor
fearod by men of sense. But we
do not see that modern reason and
science need dony the existence of
deceived and deceiving spirits, am
bitious and insubordinate who are
working out plans under a leader-1
ship of high order a kingdom of
Ibis world, with a king, contrast
ing sliarp'.y with the Kingdom ol
Heaven and its King. Do we be
lieve that there is a personal devil?
Yes or no? No not a devil such
as the questioner has probably in
mind. Yes a devil declared in
Scripture, to destroy whose works
the Son of (rod was manifested.
Bat wo reckon faith in Jesus Christ
a more important matter than fear
of the devil, or belief in his person
al existence.
Was the wine made Ly Jesus
from water at tho wedding in Can
of Galilee, intoxicating? This ques
tion, substantially, was discussed
lately in six successive moctirtgs of
the Presbyterian Ministers' Associ
tlion of Philadelphia. Tbe body
was divided on the question, at the
end as in the beginning of tbe dis
cussion; but all united in thereso-.
luuon "that in view of the deplora
ble results, temporal and eternal,
which in so many cases are clear
ly traceable to tho custom of wine
drinking, especially as part of a so
cial entertainment; and in view
also of the divino precept that the
strong bear the infirmities of the
weak, not pleasing themselves, even
as Christ also pleased not himself,
this Association regards the entire
disuse of wine, as well as other in
toxicating liquors, as a beverage,
by individuals or at social assem
blies, as n duty which finder the
Christian law of self-denial, is now
due to suffering humanity."
Lcte A. Taylor, editor of the
La Crosse (Wis.) Leader, who bas
been an inveterate stammerer,
writes as follows: s'No stammering
person ever found any difficulty in
singing. The reason of this is, that
by observing the measure ot the
music by keeping- time tbe or
gans of speech are kept in such a
position that enunciation ia easy.
Apply tbe same rule to reading or
speech, and the same result will
follow. Let the stammerer take a
sentence, say thin one 'Leander
swam tbe Hellespont' and pro
nounce it by syllables, scan it, keep
ing time with bis finger if necessas
ry, letting each sylUble occupy tbe
same time, thus, Le an der
swam the Hel les pont, and
he will not stammer. Let bim pro
nounce slowly at first, then faster,
but still keeping time with words
instead of syllables, and he will be
surprised to find that by very little
practice, he will read without stam
mering, and nearly as rapidly asj
persons ordinarily talk or read.
Then practice this in reading or
conversation until the habit is bro
ken up. Perseverance and atten
tion is all that ia necessary to per
form a perfect cure."
A Remembrance of Andrew
Jackson.
We dined at JonusborOugh, tbe
seat ofjustice of Washington Coun
ty, one ot tbe very oldest towns in
Tennessee. At that place, seventy-
five years ago, Old llicirory Jack
son, then a Judge of the Circuit
Court, at that place, when holding
a Court, ordered the Sheriff of the
county to arrest a notorious) des
perado named Bean, a celebrated
outlaw in tbe early history of that
region. The officer soon reappear
ed in the Court room and reported
his inability to make tbe arrest.
"Summon a posse," thundered Old
Hickory. "I have," said the Sher
iff, "but still we cannot make the
arrest." "Summon me," ejacula
ted the wrathful Jackson. The
Sheriff gladly obeyed, and the man
of iron will strode toward tbe cul
prit; tbe crowd eagerly following.
Approaching iiean with bent brow,
and gaze beneath wuicu every bu
man being that ever encountered
it quailed, Bean's upraised arm
dropped to bis side, and he was led
resisllessly to the prison. Tbe
railway passes over tbe precise spot
of the arrest. Correspondence of tne

OAr2; MILLION OF LIVES
SAVED I It is one of there
mark-able facta of this remarkable age, not
merely that so many persons are the victims
of dyspepsia or indigestioo, but its willing
victims. Now, we wsuld not be understood
to say that any one regards dyspepsia with
favor, or feels disposed to rank it among
tbe luxuries ol life. Far from it. Those
who bave experienced its torments would
scoot sucb an idea. Mark Tapley, who was
jolly nnder all the trying circumstances in
which be was placed, never bad an attack of
dyspepsia, or bis jollity wonld bave speedi
ly forsaken huh. Ales and women some
times suffer its tortures uncomplainingly,
bat whoever beard o! a person who enjoyed
them T Of all tbe multifarious diseases to
which tbe human system ia liable, there is,
perhaps, none so generally prevalent asdy
pepsia. If there is a wretched being in tbe
world it is
A Confirmed Dyspeptic I
But it is not our intention to descant on
the horrors of Djepepeia. We have said
that djspepsia is perhaps the most univer
sal ol human disease. This is emphatic
ally the case in tbe United States. Wheth
er this general prevalence ia doe to the
character or the food, the method of its
preiaratioD, or the basty manner io which
it is usually swallowed, is not our province
to explain. Tbe great fact with which we
are called to deal is this :
Dyspepsia Prevail!
almost universally. Nsarly every other per
son you meet ia a victim, and apparently
a willing one ; for were not this tbe ease,
wby so many sufferers, when a certain spew
dy and safe remedy is within tbe easy
reach of all who desire to avail themselves
ofitt But tbe majority will not. Blind,
ed by prejudice, or deterred by some other
unexplained influence, they refuse to ac
cept the relief proflered tbem. Tbey turn
a deaf ear to the testimony of the thous
ands whose sufferings bave been alleviated,
and with strange infatuation, appear to
cling with desperate determination to their
ruthless tormentor. But says a dyspeptic:
What is tbis remedy I to which we reply :
This great alleviator of human suffering" ia
almost as widely known aa the English I an-,
gaage. It has allayed tbe agonies of thou
sand, and is to-lay carrying comfort and
encouragement to thousands ol others.
This acknowledged panacea ia none other
Than Dr. HooAandi German Bitter.
Wonld you know moie of the merits of
this wonderful medicine than ean be learn
ed from the experience of others t Try it
yourself, and when it baa failed to fulfill
the measure of its efficacy given by tbe
proprietor, then abandon faith in h 1
Let it Be Remembered,
firt of all, that HOOFLAXDS German
Bitters is not a rum beverage. They are
not alcoholic in any sense of the term.
The are composed wholly of tbe pare juice
or vital principle of roots. This is not a
rrwrt assertion. The extrse's from wbicb
they are compounded are prepared by one
oi tb? ablest German chemist. Unlike a
ny other Bittara in tbe market, they are
wholly free from spirituoas ingredients.
Tbe objeet ions wbicb bold with so muck
force against preparations ol this cits,
namely that a desite lor intoxicating
drinks is stimulated by their use. are not
valid in the cae of the German Bitters.
So far from enconragisg or inculcating a
taste or disire for inebriating beverages.
it msy be confidently asserted that their
tendency is in a diametrically opposite di
rection. Tbeir effects can be
Beneficial Only
in all caes of tbe biliary system. Hoef
land's German Biltera stand without an e.
qua), acting promptly and vigorously upon
tbe Liver; they remove its torpidity and
cause healthful secretion of bile thereby
supplying the stomach with tbe most indis
pensable elements of sound digestion in
proper proportions. They give tone to the
atomnch stimulating i(a (unctions, and
enabling it to perform its duties as nature
designed it should do.
They Purify tJu Blood,
cleansing the vital fluid of all hurtful imp
urities and sapploMHig them with the ele
ments ol genuine bealthfulness. Bat io
that most generally prevalent, distressing,
and dreaded disease, Dyspepsia,
They Stand Unrivaled.
Now, there are certain classes cf pergoos)
to whom extreme Bitters are not only uo
palatable, but who find it impossible t
tike them without positive discomfort
For such Dr. Hoofland" t German Tonic baa
been specially prrpsrrd. Tbis preparation
is sot only palatable, but combine, in mo
diried form, all tbe virtues of the German1
Bitter, in cases of languor or excessive
debility, where the system appears to have
become exhausted of its energies. lZo
fland'a Tonic acts with almost marv
elous i fleet. It gives strength to weakness
and throws despondency to tbe winds.
But Dr. Hot flood's benefactions to th hu
man rare are not eonfined to his celebrated
German Bitters, or his invaluable
Tunic lie bas prepared another medicine,
which is rapidly winning way to popular
favor because of its intrinsic merits. I bis
ia Iloofland's Podophyllin
1111., a perfect substitute for mercury,
without any of mercury's evil qualities.
These wonderful Pills, which are intended
to aet upon the Liver, are mainly compos
ed of Podophyllin, or tbe Vital Principle
nl the Mandrake Root It ia tbe mediev
al virtues of this, health-giving plant.
Tie Phodopbyllin acts directly on the Liv
er. The extract ol Mandrake contained ia
them is rkillfully combined with four other
extracts, thus producing a pill that influ
ences the eD'.iie digestive and aBmeatary
system,and in its act ion is entirely free from
nausea. Possessing these much desirable
qualities the Podophyllin becomes invalu
able as a Family PILE No
Household should be without tbem. Ffcey
ars perfectly safe, require bat two for an
ordinary dose, are prompt and efficient in
action, and when used hi connection with
Dr. iloofland's German Bitters, or Tonic,
may be regarded as certain specifics in all
cases oT Liver Complaint. Dyspepsia or any
ol the disorders to which the svtem is ord
inarily subject. The PODOPIlY
LE13T Pills act npon the stomach and the
bowels, while the Bitters or Tonic parity
the blood.
DR. nOGSXAXD,
having provided internal remedies for dis
eases, bas given the world one manly for
external application, io the wonderful pre
