Accordingly, Frenchy brought down
his wife telling her that the captain
wished to tee her, and added

The Frenchman retired from the cabin;
but though he felt quite sure that his
wife would repel indignantly any at

to gain his bet, yet he was a little fear
ful of what might happen. He thought
rie mignt keep his wile in wind of him

companying himself with his favorite

After he had finished, the captain said
to the lady

The little Frenchman burst open the

her off swearing vengeance on all se

particular. It is no more than justice
to the captain to add, that he did not
take the fiddle, but was perfectly satis

Dr. J. C. Ayfr,
Sir The Cherry Fectoral is much inqul
ki1 after. Several of our best Physicians
have used It, three of them iu their own ruse
and always with the happiest effects. The
numerous patent medicines always before
them, lead to incredulity in regard to every
new remcdv: and it is only after undoubted
evidence of value inany article, that anything
like a general confidence can be excited.
The unrivalled excellent of this combina
tion of agents, (in the Chrry Pectoral) proved
beyond cavil by repeated trial under their own
observation, has comellcd medical men to
proclaim abroad its usefulness. It is beyond
all doubt the best general remedy we have fo r

Dear Sir No one, no iof oru man, wom

Cherry Pectoral is all iliat it claims to be.
There is much used in this vicinity although
not known un'il recently. The community
should know its virtues.
