Not Such a Fool After All.
A very Urghable Imlatce of Lvrta
He's Cunning is given in slate English
provincial piper. A parish officer, with
.b proper order, wii taking him to the
Asylum l Lencailet, but they tassed
tin night ou the wy at to iun. Very
early io the moruing the lunatic got up
ad teerched the pocket of the officer,
where be found the magistrate' order for
hie own detention, which, of cuurse,
let him completely into the secret.
With thit cunning which madmen
Dot uufrequently display, he made the
belt of hia w j to the asylum, saw one
of the keeper, and told him that he had
got mad fellow down at Lancaster,
whom he would bring up in the course of
the day, adding: "He is queer fellow,
and bas got very odd w ays. For ins'a nee,
I shouldn't w onder if be was to lay i
wai the madman, and that he was bring
ing int.' But you must take care of him,
nd don't believe a word he sits'
"The keeper promised coinpliauce,
nd the luuatic walked buck to the inn,
where he found the officer still fast
asleep. He awoke him, end they sat
down to breakfast together.
"You are a lazy fellow, to le sleeping
all day; I have bad long walk this
morning," said the lunatic.
Iudeed!" said the officer; 'I should
like to take a w alk myself, after break
fast; perhaps you will go with me?'
The'lunatic assented; and after break
fast the set out, llie.'officer leading the
way towards the aiylum, intending to
deliver bn charge; but it uerer occured
to him to see whether his order was safe.
When they got within sight of the
asylum, the lunatic exclaimed:
What a fine house that is!"
"Yea," said the officer; '1 shold like
01 tee the inside of it.'
So should 1!" replied the lunatic.
Well, I dare say they will let us go
through it: I will ask," w as the re
iponce.
Tbey went to the door; the officer
rang the bell, and the keeper w hom the
lunatic bad previously seen made his
appearance, with two or three assis
tants. The officer then began to fum
ble in his pockets foi the order, w hen
the lunatic produced it, and gave it to
the keeper saying:
"This is the man I spoke to you about.
You will take care of him; shave his
bead, and put a strait-waistcoat on
him!"
The men immediately laid hands on
the poor officer, tvho vociferated loudly
that the ether was the madman, and he
the officer; but at this only confirmed
the story pevioubly told by the lunatic,
it did not at all tend to procure his
liberation. He was taken away, and
became so indignantly furious 'hat the
strait-waistcoat waa speedily put Upon
him, end hit head wad shaved etcundem
artim.
Meanwhile the lunatic walked de
liberately back to the inn. paid the bill,
nd set out on his journey homeward
The good people in the country were of
course surprised on seeing the wrong
man return. They were afraid Uie luna
tic, in (it of frenzy, bad murdered the
officer; and they asked him, with much
trepidation, what he had done with Mr.
Steveuson, which was the offi er's name,
"Done with him!" said the lunatic,
'why, I left him at the asylum, as mad
as March bare!'
And this was nut far from the truth;
for the wits of the officer were well
nigh upset, by the unexpected deten
tion and subsequent treatment.
Further inquiry was forthwith made
by his neigbors, and it was ascertained
that the man was actually in the asyl
um. A magistrate's order was produc.
ed for his liberation, and he returned
home with a handkerchief tied round
his head, instead of the covering which
nature had bestowtd upon it. The un
fortunate officer has been the standine
jqxe oi tne neignrjoriiooa ever since.

papers came out with a statement, tha

This ruined Struggles again. He sold

Dr. J. C- Ayer,
Sir The Cherry Pectoral is mgch Inqui
red after. Several of our best Physicians
have used It, ihree of them in their own caw
and always with the happiest effects. Tha
numerous patent medicines always before
them, lead to incredulity in regard to every
new remedy; and it is only after undoubted
evidence of value iuany ariicle.thatauylhing
like a general confidence can be excited.
The unrivalled excellence of this combina
tion of agents, (in the Chrry Pectoral) proved
bt-yond cavil by rcjicaled trial under their own
observation, has compelled medical men tu
proclaim abroud its usefulness. It is beyond
all doubt the best general remedy we have fo I
the Pulmouury Affections of this climate, at
the same time sedaiive and tupecloraiit a
rare combination of properties.
In hope that it will i-rove its own reward.
