1 oar-fifths of human diseases have their
source in Impure Blood, a medicine
which restores that fluid from a de

near being a universal cure as any that
can be produced. Ayer'a Saraaparllla
affects the blood in each stage of its
formation, and is, therefore, adapted to
a greater variety of complaint! than maj
other known medicine.
Boils and Carbuncles,
which defy ordinary treatment, yield to
Ayer's Sarsaparilla after a comparatiT
ly brief triaL
Mr. C. K. Murray, of Charlottesville,
Vs., writes that for years he was af
flicted with boils which caused him
much suffering. These were succeeded
by carbuncles, of which he had several
at one time. He then began the use of
Ayer'i Sarsaparilla, and after taking
three bottles, the carbuncles disap
peared, and for six years he ha not had
ren a pimple.
That insidious disease. Scrofula, la
the fruitful cause of innumerable com
plaints. Consumption being only one of
many equally fatal. Eruption, ulcer,
ore eyes, glandular welling, weak
and wasted muscles, a capricious appe
tite, and the like, are pretty sure indi
cations of a scrofulous taint in the
system. Many otherwise beautiful face
are disfigured by pimples, eruptions,
and unsightly blotches, which arise
from impure blood, showing the need of
Ayer's Sarsaparilla to remedy the eviL
All sufferers from blood disorder
should give Ayer's Sarsajiarilla a fair
trial, avoiding all powders, ointments,
and washes, and esiiecially cheap and
worthies compounds, which not only
fail to effect a cure, but more frequently
aggravate and confirm the diseases they
are fraudulently advertised to remedy.

The oath uas originally an appeal tc
divine authority toratlfy au assertion.
The eld Greek gods swore bj tbe Styx,
and Jehovah is represented in the early
boots of the Bible as swearing by himself,
there being none higher The forms of
oath among the Hebtvs were: "By the
3od of Abraham,' "God do so unto me,"
tnd more also. "God kllOetll,,' with
.iner appeals 01 similar cnuructer
Oaths were originally taken fur tlio
performance of certain acts, to plrdgo
allegiance to a ocrehm, to pledge
hovereign to the performance of his duty
to bis people, or to accomplish judicial
purposes. The witness lilted his hundi
to hvaeu cr laid one hand on the head of
the accused Persons making promises

another's thighs. Oaths were taken be

OATHS Ob ANCIENT 1IM1. 1
In ancient times it was considerctl c-I
sential to the alidity of an oath that the i
witness should hold something in his '
hand, or place his hand on some object
of great sanctit Willi the Jew-, It w..j
the lwok of the law, which led t the Use
of the Bible in Christian courts The
Bedouin Arabs have from ancient, times
used various forms of adjuration. One
of these was "I5y the Temple." One still
in Use is as follows: The person taking
'.lie oath takes hold of the uudiRa !ole of
the tent and swears by jlc jjf,. of the
tent and its owners. Mohamine-t swore
by the .setting of the stars," tlio most
poetical oatli on tveord, though hardly so
matfuiliceiit as the oft quoted adjuration
of William the Conqueror, "By thu splen
dor of God " Itonian oaths were made)
with great solemnity mid elaboration. lit
itomaii mythology Juno, making u prom
ise to slrt-p. is represented as taking
heaven in one hand and the earth in tlio
other. Greeks and ltomuns swore liy
their gods, bj the Styx, by Olympus, by
hell, by their sacred sjinngs or riers, by
the sun and moon Their oaths wcro
valuable in the earl dajs of the republic,
but worthless after the3 Iwcamc corrcipr.
Oaths lost their sanctity and iM-camc col
loquial or profane among the Jen s nt nn
early date. Greek ladies swore daintily
by Venus, Diana and Juno, and uow-and
then by some of the male gods whoso
names were taken in vain by their liege
lords. The ICoinnns swore by Jupiter,
Hercules and their other numerous deities.
Their women Militated those of Greece.
There has always leen the danger of
making the oath too common, and thus
destroying its sanctity. Though this has
made iwrjury easy, it scarcely explains
how judicial or other forms of swearing
grnduaky lost their dignity and became a
part of the everyday speech of men and
women. In the early da) s of Christiinity
oatlis were regarded with a superstitious
reercncc that made them binding. They
lust their force in the Middle Ages so
completely that it was thought necessary
to supply their place with the trial by
combat, contact with redhot iron, and
similar barbarous judicial expedients ro
comjiel a criminal to proe las innocence.
During the Dark Ages profane swearing
llgured among the lost arts. In due time
it had itn renaissance and nrrhed at its
present perfection, with a vocabulary if
not a literature of its own. The English
have been greatly git en to profanity since
an early period in their history. Henry
the Eighth swore often and vulgarly, and
his daughter snore like a trooper. The
profane American usually calls on God
to anathematize some person or some
object which has offended, or simply ana
thematizes his eyes or snme other part of
his person. Tbe profanity that is some

Iuis IX, of Prance, so superstitionsly
devout in his old age, swore by God's
llesurreclioa. Charles Till stvore by llio
Light of (Sod, w hich was more poetic and
t-uited to Ids character as a chivalrous
knight, Iuis XII, who merited the title
Father of his People, treated the deity
with less fumiliarit. He simply said,
when he desired to emphasize tho asser
tion, "May the devil carry mo off'"
Francis I, w ho had lieen knighted by the
Chevalier Bajard, asseverated "On the
word of a gentleman." As for Bayard
himself, the most finished and-irreproach-able
knight of his age. his favorite adjura
tion was Ivy the "Head of God." Charles
IX satisfied his morbid desire for some
form of profanity with a terse "God's
Death." Henry IV had two oaths with
wtich he f reel y pnnctuated his convcrsa
ln: "By the belly of St. Gri" and
' Tarnldicu." St. Gris was the god of
A'unknrds. and he swore by him as an old
woman might haie sworn by Bacchus.
"Jarnidicu" meant Je recic Dicn, that is,
"I deny God," or let me deny God if this
is so or is not so, meaning to appeal to
something impossible. Thi9 form of pro
fanity did not please his confessor, Cot on,
who begged him to deny any one rather
than God himself, for instance. So the
king changed his form of adjuration to
"Jnrnicoton." "I deny Colon.'
The French swear "Par Xotro Dame"
as the Euglish "By Our Lady " This form
of oath lias naturally disappeared from
the profane v oenbiilary of Protestant na
tions, but is Mill used by Frenchmen, and
sometimes by 1 "rei.ch ladies in the con
tracted form of dame. It is'curious to
onsen e that while profanity in France,
and 'to n certain extent in all Catholic
countries, has become meaningless, in
England mid America it retains in most
mo Ulis much of its original blasphemous
character, perhaps because there bale
been such slight changes in its selling.
There are English sjveakiiig iiersons w ho
swear with astonishing volubility without
themselves attaching the slightest mean
ing' to the profane words or being moved,
so far as can 1 perceived, by any ill fill
ing. Still, jt is not expected that an Eng
lish or American gentleman will swear in
the presence of ladles, nor does a gentle
man raise himself in the estimation cf
others of his sex by using profane oaths
as a safety valve to his overburdened
enmli.tus. San Francisco Chronicle.
