Once before, this self same air
Passed ma though 1 knew not where.
Strange! how very like it came!
Touch acil fragrance wero tho same:
Sound of mingled voices, too.
With u light laugh ringing through;
Some ose n (vinjj here or there,
Sou:e one passing up the stair,
Some one calling from without.
Or a far off childish shout;
Simple, home like, nothing more.
Vet it all hath been before!
No No; today, nor yesterday
Nor any day But far away.
So i.Msg ago. so very far
It might have been another star.
Ii ?? was ii s;h-iii? and where? and when?
This life that went, yet comes again*
Was sleep its world? or death its shore?
1 still l lie siler:! past implore.
Ah' newt dream bad power to show
Such vexing glimpse of Long Ago.
Never a death could follow death
With love between, and home aud breath.
The spell has pn ssed What spendthrift! we,
? if simple household certainty
What golden grain we trampis low
Searching for flowers that never grow
VVhy, borne is real, and love is real;
Nor false out honest high ideal
Life, it is bounding, warm, and strong.
Aud all my heart resounds with soug
It muss be true, whatever befall.
This, 1 the w.n-ld'to come, are all
And yel it puzzles me, alack'
W ben life that could not i>e, comes back!

She can come to a conclusion with

Six of them can talk at once and

She can safely stick fifty pins in her

She is cool as a cucumber in half a
dozen tight dresses aud skirts, wliiie- a
man will sweat and fume and growl
in one loose shirt.
She can talk us sweet as poaches
and cream to the woman she hates,
while two rh$n would bo punching
each other's heads before they had ex
changed ten words.
She can throw a stone with a curve
that would bo a fortuno to a baseball
She ean say "uo" in such a low
voice that it means "yes.''
She ciin sharpen a lead pencil if
you give her plenty of time and plea

She can dance all night in a pair of
shoes two sizes too small for her and
enjoy every minute of the time.
bhc can appreciate a kiss from her
husband seventy-five years after tho
marriage ceremouy is performed.
She can goto church and afterward
tell you what every woman in the
congregation had ou; and in some rare
instances can give yon a faint idea of
what the text was.
She can walk half the night with a

Man aud llunic Killed by My.
Moses Elvich^a juuk dealer of Punx

He had been engaged to haul a load of
furniture for a man who was moving

steep hill Moses saw a large IIy on tho
neck of one of the .horses, it annoy?
ed ihe man as much as it did the
horse, and the little insect caused the
death of the animal, and also that of
Moses. Elvich, in leaning forward to
brush away the By, fell to the ground
and broke h:s neck. The horses took
fright, and, running into the fence,
the one on-which the fiy was sitting
broke its log and had to be killed. El

A Special Exhortation.
At a recent impressive prayer meet?
ing at Squirrel island, led by a pastor
formerly of Lcwiston, there was an
auti-ciimax just before the benedic?
tion. The pastor^ gave out a hymn,
and the congregation were exhorted,
the young especially, to go away and
put into practice the sentiment of the
song. The pastor noted irreverent
titters all the while the hymn was -be?
ing .sung. The leading sentiment of
the hymu was this: "Draw Me Nearer."
It was a moonlight "night, and the
youths and maidens adjourned to

SLID TMK TP THE AFFLICTED,
The mineral springs discovered in Ashe county, N. C, from -which comes the
ASHLEY'S BROMINE AND ARSENIC WATER.
Has been a blessing to the; afflicted of this land. This water is no conn
pounded nostrum, but is a natural medicine, flowing from the earth, and\
therefore, can be used with perfect faith in its medical qualities. It has been^
analyzed by competent chemists, and found to contain 52 per cent, more ^
arsenic than any water tested
IT WILL CT RE
Britrht's disease, rheumatism, syphillis, erysipelas, old sores, ulcers, tetter,
salt rheum, scald head, eczema, skin diseases, female diseases, dyspepsia, ner
vousness,, heartburn, restlessness, etc.
This water can he taken internally and applied externally.
It will remove pimples, blotches and all eruptions on the skin by simply
moistening the skin with it two or three times a day.
Science has never produced a compound that will equal its effects in cleans?
ing and beautifying the skin.
Persons who feel the need of a spring tonic or blood purifier will be charmed
with its effects. It is confidentially recommended to any one suffering with
kidney diseases, rheumatism, neuralgia,nervousness,general debility, chronic
sore eyes, syphilis, old sores, ulcers, erysipelas, dyspepsia, and a large num?
ber of diseases too long to enumerate. It is a boon to women afflicted with
the various forms of female diseases.
From Numerous Testimonials the Following are Appended
TWENTY FOUNDS IN THIRTY DAYS.
Gentlemen:?It gives me much pleasure to say a word in behalf of Ashley's
Bromine and Arsenic Water. I had been a sufferer for some time from an
ulcerated mouth, which would yield to no treatment whatever, until I began
the use of the Arsenic Water, and after using it for three weeks, both exter?
nally and internally, I was entirely well. My general health was very greatly
improved, and I gained twenty pounds in a single month. Too much good
cannot be said of this water. Very truly,

Dear Sir:?I write to say I have been suffering with dyspepsia for several

duced by your agent to try the Ashley'sHromine and Arsenic Water, and
after using less than two cases 1 find myself entirely well, and can eat any?
thing without the slightest inconvenience or trouble on account of indiges?
tion. Before using the water I had often felt that I should Ubver be well
again, but am barmy to say I feel like a new person altogether; for wluehJW3
am very thankful to you and your agent, Mr. Byrd. Very respectfully, ?
