HOW POOR HARRIS WAS CRUSADED.
An Affecting Tale of the Times.
I w:ts once sent for in great haste
to attend a man of fesiectal)lity,
whose wife, a lady of intelligence and
refinement, had discovered him m
his room lying senseless upon the
floor. On arriving at the house I
fount! Mrs. Harris iu a great distress
'What is the matter with Mr.
Harris?" I asked, on meeting his la
dy, who was in tears, and looking the
picture of dispair.
"Iain afraid it's apoplexy," she
replied. "I found him lying upon
the floor, where he had, to all ap
pear inces, fallen from his chair. His
face is purple and though he breathes
it is with great difficulty."
I went up to my patient. He had
been lifted from the floor and was
lying on the bed. Sure enough hi
face was purple and breathing labor
ed; but somehow the symptoms did
not indicate apoplexy. Every vein
in his head and face was filled, and
he lay perfectly stupid, but still I
saw no clear indication of an actual
or approaching congestion of the
"Hadn't he better be bled, doctor?'
asked the anxious wife.
"I don't know as that is necessa
ry," I replied. 'I think if we let him
alone it will pass off in the course of
a few hours. '
"A few hours! He may die in half
:in hour!" she exclaimed.
"I don't think the case so danger
ous as that, matlame.
"Apoplexy not dangerous!"
"I hardly think it apoplexy."
"Pray, what do you think it is,
Mrs. Harris looked anxiously into
mv lace as she spoke.
I deliberately hinted that he possi
bly might have been drinking too
much brandy ; hut this she positively
and almost indignantly objected to.
ao, doctcr, 1 ought to know
aootit mat, sue said. "JJepend up
on it, the case is more deeply seated.
1 am sure he better be bled. Won't
you bleed him. doctor? A few
ounces of blood taken from his arm
may give life to the stagnant circula
tion .if blood in his veins." .
Thus urged, I after some reflec
tion, ordered a bowl and bandages.
and opened a vein, from which the
blood flowed freely, and relieved him
of about eight ounces of his circulat
ing medium. But he lay insensible
as before, much to the distress of his
"something else must be done.
doctor!" she urged, seeing that the
T-l-3: L.J l, , ...
oieeumg nau accomplished nothing,
"It my husband is not quickly re
lieved he must die."
By this time several frieuds and
relatives who had been sent for ar
rived, and urged upon me the adop
tion of some more active means of
restoring the sick man to conscious
ness. One proposed blisters all over
the body, another immersion m hot
water. I suggested that it might be
well to use a stomach pump.
"W hy, doctorr asked one of bis
'P. rhaps he has taken some drug, '
"Impossible, doctor, said his wife.
"He has not been away from home
to-day, and there is no drug of any
Kino in ine nouse.
"No brand y? I ventured the as
' No, doctor; no spirits of any
kind, not even wine in the house"
returned Mrs. Harris, iu an offended
I was not the regular family phy
sician, and had been called in to
meet the alarming emergency because
my house happened to be nearest the
dwelling of Mr. Harris, feeling im
position to be a rirthcult one, 1 sug
gested that the family physician had
better be called.
"But the delay, doctor," urged the
"No harm will result from it, be
assured," I replied.
But mv words did not assure them.
However, as I was firm in my resolu
tion not to do anything more for the
patient until Dr. Ssolly came, they
had to submit. I wished to make a
call of importance in the neighbor
hood, and proposed going to be
back by the time Dr. Solly arrived;
but the friends of the sick man
would not suffer me to leave the
When Dr. Solly came, we convers
ed aside for a few moments, and I
gave him my views of the case, anil
stated what I had done, and why I
had done it. We then proceeded to
the bedside of the patient. There
was still no sign of approaching con
sciousness. "Don't yon think his head ought
to be shaved and blistered?" asked
the wife, nnxiously.
"Dr. Solly thought a moment, ami
then said, "Yes, by all means. Jvend
for a barber and also a fresh fly
bister, four inches by nine."
Hooked into the face of Dr. Solly
with surprise. It was perfectly grave
and earnest. I hinted to him my
doubt of the good that mode of
treatment would do; but he spoke
confidently of the result, and said it
would not only cure the disease, but,
ho believed, take awav the predispo
sition thereto, with which Mr. Harris
war affected in a high degree.
The head of Mr. Harris was shav.
ed, and Dr. Solly applied the blister
with his own hands, and which com
pletely covered the scalp from fore
head to occiput.
"IM it remain on for two bovjrf'
then make nse of the ordinary
said Dr. Solly. "If he
should not recover during the action
f the blister, don't feel tineas v
sensibility will be restored soon af
I did not call again, but heard
from Dr. Solly the result-
After we left, the friends stood
inxiously around the bed upou which
the sick man lay; but though the
blister began to draw, no signs of
returning consciousness showed them
selves, further than an occasional
low moan or an uneasy tossing of the
arms. For full two hours the burn
ing plaster narched the tender skin
Mr. Harris's shorn head, and was
then removed. It had done good
service. Dressings were then applied,
repeated and repeated again; but
still the sick man lav in a deep stu-
'It has dime no good. Hadn't we
better send for the doctor?" suggest
the wife. . .
Just then the eyes of Harris open
ed, and he looked with half stupid
surprise from face to face of the anx
ious group that surrounded the bed.
'V hat's the matter?" he at length
said; at the same time feeling a
strange sensation about his head, he
placed his hand rather heavily there
on. "Heavens and earth! He was
now fully in his right senses. "Heav
ens and earth! what ails my head?"
for mercy's sake, keep quiet.
said his wife, the glad tears gushing
over her face. "You have been very

"But my head! What's the matter
with my head? It feels as if scalded.

Sarah, I don't understand this!
Vv hat's my arm tied in this way
"Be quiet, my dear husband and I
will explain all. O, be very quiet!
Your life depends upon it."
Mr. Harris sank back upon the pil
low from which he had risen, and
closed his eyes to think. He put his
hand to his head and felt it tenderly
from temple to temple and from nape
"Yes; dear, you have been very UL
We feared for your life," said Mrs.
Harris, affectionately. "There have
been two physicians in attendance."
Harris closed his eyes, his lips
moved. Those nearest were not much
edified by the whispered words that
issued therefrom. They would have
sounded very strangely to ears po
lite and refined. After this he lay
for some time quiet.
""Threatened with apoplexy, I sup
pose?" he then said, interrogatively.
"Yes, dear," replied his wife; "I
found you lying insensible on the
floor, on happening to come into
your room. It was most providen
tial that I discovered you as I did, or
you would certainly have died.
Harris shut his eyes and muitered
something, but its meaning was not
Finding him -out of danger, friends
and relatives retired, and the sick
man was left alone with his family

to butcher me in this way? I am laid

"H-u-s-h ! There, do for heaven's
sake be quiet! everything depends
With a gesture of impatience, Mr.
Harris shut his eves, teeth and hands
and lay perfectly still for some min
utes. Then he turned his face to the
wall, muttering in a low, petulant
voice. "Too bad! too bad! too bad!"
I had not rred in my first and my
last impression of Harris's disease,
neither had Dr. Solly, although he
used a very extraordinary mode of
treatment. The facts of the case are
Harris has a weakness. He could
not taste wine or strong drink with
out being tempted in1 o excess. Both
himself and friends were mortified
and grieved at this; and they, by ad
monition, and he, by . good resolu
tions, tried to bring about a- reform
But to see was to taste; to taste was
to falL At last his friends urged
him to shut himself up at home for a
certain time, and see if total absti
nence would not give him strength
He got on pretty well for a few days
particularly so, as his coachman
kept a well filled bottle for him in
the carriage-house, .to which he not
unfrequently resorted: but a top ar
dent devotion to this identical bottle
brought on the supposed apoplexy.
Dr. Solly was right in his mode of
treating the disease after all, and did
not err in supposing it would reach
the predisnosi'ion. The cure was ef
fectual; Harris kept quiet on the
subject, and bore his shaved head on
his shoulders with as much philoso
phy as he could muster. A wig, af
ter the sores made by the blister had
disappeared, concealed the barber !
work until his own hair grew again.
He never ventured noon wine or
brandy, for fear of apoplexy.
When the truth leaked out, as such
things always will, the friends of
Harris had many a hearty laugh, but
they wisely concealed from the ob-
j ct ot their merriment the fact that
they knew anything more than ap-
jiearedof the supposed illness.
LiOVE .Letters. Girls who are
tolerably well-read, know by heart
all the routine of love making, long
liefore they ever come to be seri
ously in love. They have seen about
it in Byron and Tennyson, and have
sung a good deal about it in con
nection with the moon, and with all
sorts of angels aud flowers at the p
ano. As soon as the fated hour of
life-long attatchmetit comes, thev
settle themselves dowu to realize all
that thev have heard of, and love
which had not a good ileal of moon
and flowers and angels about.it
would not seem love to them at all

Dr. 1. Walker's California Tin
egar Bitters are a purely Vegetable
preparation, mado chiefly from tbe na
tive herbs found ou the lower ranges of
the Sierra Nevada mountains of Califor
nia, the medicinal properties of which
are extracted therefrom without the use
of Alcohol. Tbo question is almost
daily asked,"" What ia the cause of the
unparalleled success of Vinegar Bit
ters!" Our answer is, that they remove
the cause of disease, and the patient re
covers his health. They are the great
blood purifier and a life-giving principle,
a perfect Renovator and Invigorator
of the system. Never before in the
history of the world has a medicine been
compounded possessing tbe remarkable
qualities of Vinega k Bitters in healing the
sick of every disease man is heir to. They
are a gentle Purgative as well as a Tonic,
relieving Congestion or Inflammation of
the Liver and Visceral Organs, is BUioua
The properties of Da. Walker's
Viskoar Bittkrs are Aperient, Diaphoretic, ,
Carminative, Nutritious, Laxative, Diuretic,
Sedative, Counter-irritant, Sudorific, Altera
tive, and Anti-Bilious.
Grateful Thousands proclaim Vin
egar Bitters the most wonderful In-
Tigorant that evet sustained the sinking
No Person can tafce these Bitters
according to directions, aDd remain long
unwell, provided their bones are not de
stroyed by mineral poison or other
means, and vital organs wasted beyond
Bilious. Remittent and Inter
mittent Fevers, which are so preva
lent in the valleys of our great rivers
throughout tbe United States, especially
those of the Mississippi, Ohio.ilissoari,
Illinois, Tennessee, Cumberland, Arkan
sas, Red, Colorado, Brazos, Rio Grande,
Pearl, Alabama, Mobile, Savannah, Ro
anoke, James, and many others, with
their vast tributaries, throughout our
entire country during the Summer and
Autumn, and remarkably so during sea
sons of unusual heat and dryness, are
invariably accompanied by extensive de
rangements of the stomach and liver,
and other abdominal viscera. In their
treatment, a purgative, exerting a pow
erful influence upon these various or
gans, is essentially necessary. There
is no cathartic for tbe purpose equal to
Dr. J. Walker's Vinegar Bitters,
as they will speedily remove the dark
colored viscid matter with which the
bowels are loaded, at the same time
stimalating the secretions of the liver,
and generally restoring the healthy
functions of the digestive organs.
Fortify the body against disease
by purifying all its fluids with VnrEGA
Bitters. No epidemic can take hold
of a system thus fore-armed.

Eructations of the Stomach, Bad Tasta

neys, and a hundred other painful symp
toms, are the oflsprings of Dyspepsia,
One bottle will prove a better guarantee
of its merits than a lengthy advertise

Swellings, Ulcers, Erysipelas, Swelled Neck,
Goitre, Scrofulous Inflainmationa, Indolent
Inflammations, Mercurial Affections, Old
Sores, Eruptions of the Skin, Sore Eyes, eta.
In these, as in all other constitutional Dis
eases, Walker's Viskoar Bitters have
shown their great curative powers in the
most obstinate and intractable eases.
For Inflammatory and Chronic
Rheumatism, Gout, Bilious, Remit
tent and Intermittent Fevers, Diseases of
the Blood, Liver, Kidneys and Bladder,
these Bitters have no equal. Such Diseases
are caused by Vitiated Blood.
Mechanical Diseases. Persons en-
faged in Paints and Minerals, such as
lumbers, Type-setters, Gold-beaters, and
Miners, as they advance in life, are (object
to paralysis of the Bowels. To guard
against this, take a dose of WAlKEB'a Vnr
eqar Bitters occasionally.
For Sli in Diseases, Eruptions, Tet
ter, Salt-Rheum, Blotches, Spots, Pimples,
Pustules, Boils, Carbuncles, Ring-worms,
Scald-head, Sore Eyes, Erysipelas, Itch,
Scarfs, Discoloration of the Skin, Humors
and Diseases of the Skin of whatever name
or nature, are literally dug op and carried
out of the system in a short time by the nse
of these Bitters.
Pin, Tape, and other Worms,
larking in the system of so many thousands,
are effectually destroyed and removed. No
system of medicine, no Tennifuges, no an
thelminities will free the system from worms
like these Bitters.
For Female Complaints, to young
or old, married or single, at the dawn of wo
manhood, or the tarn of life, these Tonio
Bitters display so decided an influence that
improvement is toon perceptible.
Cleanse the Yitiated Blood when
ever you find its imparities bursting through
the skin in Pimples, Eruptions, or Sores;
cleanse it when yoa find it obstructed and
sluggish in the veins ; cleanse it when it ia
foul; your feelings will tell yoa when. Keep
the blood pare, and the health of the system
