A GOOD STORY.
Two tbaps tame in contact at one
of our restaurants, some time since,

tbe mud and bad roads became the top
ic of their conversation. One observe
ed that several coal teams were stuck
in the mud, axle tree deep, and that he

city, he saw a man sitting on a fence,

ster, 'only (pointing to the road)
have a wagon and four yoke of oxen in
the mud, and the plaguey brutes won i
pull a bit!'
At this moment an old Hoosier en
tered who heard only the winding up
part otthe story drew up a chair, and
commenced a yarn about what he had
seen. He says;
Friend, were you ever on the Amer
ican bottoms? I crossed there once;
and on wading through the mud, which,
as a matter of course, was not the best
walking, I kicked out a hat, when a
voice which said 'Quit that, old fel
low,' saluted my ears. Looking around
and seeing nothing, I concluded to give
it another, which I did; when the same
voice was heard to exclaim '!ttop,you
re kicking my hat!' I here discover
ed that a man was slicicking in the
mud, and observed 'Old fellow, you
had better be getting out of that Lelore
night, or you will be sure to freeze to
death;' be halloaed out 'I don't care
a darn I're a good mvle vnder me!"

Sir The Cherry Tectoral is much Inqui
red after. Several of our tst Physicians
have ufed It, three of them in their own caio
and always with the happiest eflecls, Tim
numerous patent medicines always befew
them, lead to incredulity in regard to every
new remedy; end it is only after - undoubted
evideuce of value in any article, that anything
like a general confidence, can be excited.
The unrivalled rxcelme of this combina
tion of agents, (in ll.e Ch'rrv Pectoral) proveil
beyond l-uv it by repeated trial under their own
observation, has compiled medical men to
proclaim abroad its usefulness.' It is beyond
all doubt the best general remedy we have for
Ihe Pulmonary A flections of this climate, at
the same time sedative and fxpc.clor.iul it
rare combination of properties.
In hope that it will prove its own reward,
