THE DAILY BULLETIN,
BY A HI II I II I MKfhllVK.
The following story in taki-n, word for
wirO, from tin: uou-lmok of a travi-li-r:
"An ailvcnturc In-fell in yet-tertlay that
will huunt mu to my dyin day.
"If I ever came war to ik-ath Uforc, I
hhd no knowltde of it.
"I kliudder us I nit hero recording it,
with the tire burning brightly iixn tin:
l i urth, and lijrlit, warmth and comfort ull
(round me. Yeatenluy morning I act out
from my fiidi-iH:e to come hither.
"I wuh told that the mud wax bud, hut
thin inforuiutiou did not deter me from set
"My horVe was a Wrong one, mu I felt
that he wan tilmndantly able to curry me
"So, at an early hour I wt off, determined
to make the journey, if I could, 1rforu the
lhrknet apain mine down.
"For the first tew mile the mud hud been
very fair; but whi n wc entered the forest
though which I had to puss 1 found that
bi.ste would 1 no part of my programme.
"The snow was deep and packed but very
little; and whut made it worse, there was a
sharp crust, that cut the legs of my hoise at
i v.ry step,"
"This interfered with ids traveling so much
tlmt it required a gs m! deal of urging to
keep him in a slow trot.
"It was a weary day for all of us, but at
lust it wore away, and the shadows of uight
iicgun to gather around.
'.Since noon I had not pacd a single
"The fonst stretched away U fore me. and
I saw no sign that I was approaching uny
dwelling-place of man.
"On and on I plodded ; at a alow walk,
while the shadows of night gathered thick
aU.ut me. Hut the darkness was ere long
disjiclled by the rising of the moon, w hich
sent a ft'" I ot light down into the forest, so
that my way was rendered almost as light
i.nd as plain ln-fure me as it was Ufore
night set in.
"A little later ami a sound fell upon my
urs, which sent a thrill through my whole
"It was the cray wolves.
In an instant I "realized the danger that
I was in. My horse, as though he did also,
pricked up hw ears and started off at a bet-D-r
"Again the cry came, louder and more
distinct than Ufnrr. It told me that the
blood-thirsty brutes had scented us out, and
wi re in full pursuit.
Should they come up w ith us there w as
not one chance in a hundred that we would
"Our only safety lay in getting on as fast
r x:llc, and distancing them.
-But this 1 fell was next to impossible
with a horse as tired as mine.
"Vet it was my only hope, and giving
him a sharp cut he sprung onward.
"Hut in less than a dozen ps he had
fallen into a walk again, out of which
wither whip nor spur nor the cry of the
wolves, could stir him.
Then the truth, wh'iu I had long sus-im-tcd,
was forced upon im he was com
pletely tired out.
"I cast a glance backward, and shudder
t i tot 1 did so.
"The wwlves were s neur that I could
mc their shadowy forms as they came
gliding onward through the trees.
"Again I did my U-st to urge my horse
onward, but w ith as ill success us U-fore.
'A minute later and 1 emerged into an
op n space on the bank of the river whose
course I hud ls-eu following for the great r
iurt of the day.
-Two-thirds its surface, was covered with
ice, but in the center there was a dark chan
nel, where the? water moved more swiftly,
and thus far hail bade defiance to the fnt.
-As I looked I saw a large cake of ice
that had la-conn- detached from the main
i,.ly slowly flouting down the channel on
the side next to me.
In an instant it incurred to me that
therein lay my only hope of safety.
"The wolves wore now so close' ln me
that in a course of a few minutes more they
would le snapping at my heels.
I sprung from my saddle, and as I
h niched the snow 1 found myself half buri
ed in it.
it was decj r than I imagined, and for
a moment I stissl irresolute, hardly know
ing if I would have time to force my way
through it to the ice Uforc the wolves
lie woald upon me.
-At that moment all the wolves in t.e
lck aemcd to ojxrn their throats and gate
a prolonged howl in concert.
"Again, startled by the sound, and re
licved of niv weight, my horse sprung aw ay
from my ide, at a U tter rate of s-cd than
had thought him capable of, leaving me
to shift for myself.
"There wan no chance for me now, e icept
the river, and I plunged through the snow
"Nearer and nearer ramc the wolres,
their horrid cries tilling my cars.
I inwardly prayed that they might keep
on after my horse.'but in this I was doomed
They turned aside after me, und came
plunging through the snow.
i caught up the dead branch of a tree,
which had fallen on the snow, und plunged
"I struck the ice with the howling brutes
not a dozen yards in my rear.
The floating cake on which my sulfation
depended, was u little la-low me, and, to my
horror, I saw tl t the current was earn ing
it toward the opposite side.
With ever)' nerve stretched to its ut
mit I sprung toward it.
"A fearful chasm of black water lay lie
t cen ; but the leap must le taken or a hor
rible, death was mine.
Summoning ull the strength I could
command, I sprung ulaive the dark with r
just us the foremost wolf made a snap ut
'my heels. , , .
I plunted my feet Upon the cake of ice,
but it was only'by the greatest effort that I
stuck to it, insteudof sliding into the water,
as for un instiint it seemed that I must do.
"The dead brunch of the tree I curried
saved me, und, owing to the imia-tus 1 gave
my fruil ruff, it moved to the opmsito
shore, and I was saved.
'Several of the howling brutes sprang
after me, but only one obtained flailing
upon it, ami that ones I sent into the water
after ita comrades w ith my club, which had
already done me much service.
"The motion I had given to the raft of
ire, and the current setting towurd the op
posite shore, Uith combined to aid In my
escape. The dead branch of the tree also
rendered wc good aerrlce, and, in a few
minutes I lauded upon the other side, while
the howling, disappointed brutes gnashed
their teeth in impotent rage, not daring to
venture into the. water after me not liking
the haiku, larhaps, of those who had sprung
in, and w ho now did their lust to cIuiiiImt
out among them.
"Thankful for my escape, I followed on
down the river. My enemies for a long
time kept uhrcust of mo on the other tide;
but at the coming of daylight they slunk
away into the depths ol the forest and I
saw them no morel
"It was good walking on the ice, and so
I riiade gissl time, and at lust arrived at
my plain of destination, which my horse
had reuched In-fore inc."

Trade, generally is ln:ating along in the
old ruts- without change, cither for la tter
or for worse. Transactions arc confined ul
most exclusively to the order trade, und us
usual ut this season of the year, even that
is dull. The weather has cleared up and it
is hojn:d, has finally become more settled.
The rivers are declining, though they ure
yet comparatively high.
Stin ks, except of corn und oat", are fair
und receipts lilnral. Country produce of
every description is ubuudunt while receipts
continue large, and as a consequence prices
ure very low. There is but little freight
moving either by river or rail. River rates
to the south are unchanged.

I graduuily grew worse, and no one can know how
mai n I suffered or what a miserable, being was. Mr
loud ached over my eyes so that I was confined lb
my bed for many successive days, suffering the most
intense pain, which at one time lasted for lftS hours.
All sense of taste and smell gone, sight and hearing
gone, nervous system shuttered aud constitution
broken, and I was huwkiug and spitting seven
eighths of tne time. I prayed for death to relieve
me of my sufferings. A turoruble notice in your
paper of Dr. Sale's Catarrh Kcnicdv induced nie to
pun-base a package and use it withl)r. Sage', nasal
douche, which applies the remedy by hydrostatic
pressure, the only way compatible with commou
sense. Well. Mr. Editor, it did not cure me In three
fourths of a second, imr in one hour or month, hut
in less than eight minutes I was relieved aud Iu
three months cured and have remained so for over
Is months. While usiug the Catarrh Kerned y I used
Dr. Pierce's tioldi u Medical Discovery to purify my
blood and strengthen my stomach. I' also kept my
liver active alio bowels regular hv the use of his
1'lcasaut Purgative Pellets. If niy experience will
induce other sufferers to seek Ihe same means of re
lief, this letter will have answered its purpose.
Yours truly. S. 1). KE.NNK'K.
