Four Years on Crutches.
For fifteen years I was afflicted with rheu
matism, four yearsof which 1 wna compelled
to go on crutches. Words are Inadequate to
express the suffering I endured during that
time. During these fifteen years of exis
tence (it was not living), I tried every known
remedy without receiving any benefit. I
finally besan on Swift's Specific (8. S. 8.),
which from the first gave me relief, and to
day I am enjoying the lient of health, and am
a well man. I ciindidlv believe that s. S. S.

The singulai-experience of one of our

We were strolling on IheRipiaiv know n

Iitbroned in tent like stalls' of wood, en
circled by their bright, litauiilul and
fragrant wares, while the iminin r of ar
ranging tho stalls, so that the vender sils
raised some six feet in the uir, gave a
novel effect to the scene.
While we were idling away the hou
in L.e ( ours bt. Louis, with these roguish
nnd pretty flower vender, we w
thrown into a state of amazement and
curiosity by the appearance of a yoim,
gin or aoout li. w ho rushed among us
with a startling speed, and who, hardly
pausing to regain her breath, said in ex
"You are Ami ricans, and, I trust, gen
tlemen. Is there one among you who
will marry me.'
"We will all marry you," was the in
stant response, accompanied by hearty
"Ah, you aro in sport, but 1 am in
earnest. Who will marry mo?"
There seemed to be no joke after all.
Iho girl was positively in earnest and
looked at one and all of rs as coolly, yet
earnestly, ns possible.
"Here. Harry," said one who was rather
a leader among us, and addressing Harry,
"you want a wile," and he gave our com
rade a slight pusli toward the girl.
I'or some singular reason Harry took
the matter much more in earnest than
the rest of us, and regarded the new
comer with a most searching but respect
ful glance. Approaching her he said:
"I do not know exactly what you
mean, but I can understand by your ex
pression of faco that you tire quite ill
tiniest. Will you take my arm and let
js walk to one side?"
"Yes; but I have, no linio to lose."
And taking his arm they walked away

wo could return no proper answ er, as we
really did not know. He knew perfectly

Harry did not make his appearance

lulled to the ship in a shore boat, and,
;oming on board, reported at once to the
japtain, who stood upon the quarter

The circumstances connected with the
ibseneo of Harry were very peculiar,
ind as he was one, of the most correct
fellows on board, his request was granted
by the captain, w ho retired to his cabin,
followed by the delinquent. After re
maining with the commander for nearly
an hour, he came out and joined us.
"What is thu upshot of it. Harry?" we

"Can't say, w hat is it?"
"If I don't resign be will send nit

"W-h-e-w!" again from all hands.
Harry told us his story in a desultory
manner, interrupted by many questions
and ejaculations, but which we will put
into a simple form for the convenience
of the reader.
Julie Meurice was the orphan child of
a merchant, who had been of high
standing during his life and who left a
handsome fortune to endow his daugh
ter on her wedding day, or, if not mar
ried before, (she was to receive the prop
erty on coining to the age of 20 years.
Her mother had died in her infancy,
and her father, w hen Bhe was IU years
of age, placed her ill a convent to be
educated, w here she remained until his
death, which occurred suddenly six
months previous to the period of our
After his death Julie became the ward
of her uncle, by the tenor of her father's
will, and the period of her educational
course having just closed at the con

brought her home to his family circle.
Muie. Meurico, it appears, was a
scheming, caleul.'ting woman, and
knowing that Julie would be an heiress
she tried every wuv to promote her inti

vulgar and repulsive creature.
The next day after Julie had heard
this iiiforuialion was Sunday, thegavest
day of the week in Marseilles, and, for
innately, Julio succeeded in maUin:

As she explained to Harry afterward
sho was intent only upon escape, and be
lieved this to be her last chance. When
she saw a half dozen young Americans,
who seemed perfectly respectable, the
idea that positive safety lav only in mar
riage dawned upon her, and she actually
ran toward us, as we have related, the
moment the thought developed itself.
Harry became more and luoi'o im
pressed with Julie's story as they walked
along, while be was delighted by her
innocent beauty and manifest refine
ment. It was all like a dream, almost
too romantic for truth. Our "late"
sometimes conies to us in this singular
fashion, he thought. "There is a tide
in the affairs of men which, taken at the
flood, leads on to fortune." Suddenly
he turned to her and said:

her soft, pleading eves. Her brain was
very busy; sho remembered what await

question, she put both of her hands into

They wandered on. Julie had always
plenty of money in her purse, and tin y

who could not resist their request to

of Harry B., who went with her to the

Harry the consul agreed to lake the

Whatever might lie said with regard to
the propriety of the young folks' con

irrevocably united as husband and wife.
Harry was forced, however, to resign his
commission. By the aid of the consul
Julie's rights in relation to her fortune
under her father's will were fully re
alized, and she came almost immediately
with her young husband to America.
