The Story o" Two KoveU.
Two friends of mil e spent each of them
the best iwrt of th year I8h8 in writing
aud revising a novel apiece. I loth stories
were published by leading houses dur
ing the early par; of I860. Tbey wore
well advertised, skillfully handled, and
both novels are, according to the popular
acceptance of the term, successful that
Is, they have been widely written about,
paragraphed in the press from one end of
the country to an it her, English editions
have been printed of each, and to every
literary person the names of both novels
and authors are tin roughly familiar. Now,
whut have the atthors received in hard
cash for their year' s work r I will tell you
exactly: Of one, 1 700 copies were sold; no
royalty was paid o a the first thousand to
cover manufacture , etc, and upon the re
maining TUG copies tlie author received the
repular 10 per cent . royalty.
The book sold 'or 81. The net revenue
to the author was therefore (70. His type
writer's bill was .'S1.50. Xet profit, $8.50,
and the book ha stopped selling. The
other author was a tritle more fortunate
in that bis novel i cached a sale of 2,000, all
but five copies. I Jke the first he received
a 10 per cent, royalty only after the first
thousand copies. Unfortunately, he bought
so many copies if his books for friends
thnt, when his pi blishcr's statement came,
it showed a credit in his favor of just $39.50.
Had he type written his manuscript, the
novel would hat e thrown him into debt!

It is the general verdict that
when pneumonia seizes npon a
person in the decline of life it is
almost always fatal. The
marked increase in the number
of deaths from , this malady of
late years has made its attacks
greatly dreaded. Reid's Ger
man Cough and Kidney Cure
is a epecific for it, and will cure
the worst case If taken freely.
John P. Gove is a respected citi
zen of Peoria, liviog in Cedar
Park. At the age of 76 years
he was taken with a severe cold,
nothing seemed to do him any
good and his cold steadiiv
deepened until his cough could
be heard all over the block. It
had Hie hoarse rattle so omi
nous of evil, and there was the
tightness across the chest and
the usual symptoms of pneumo
nia, The doctors came, but
shook their heads, saying that
at his age the case was well
nigh hopeless. He could not
lie down a moment; a hoarse
and tremendous cough set in at
once whenever he attempted to
do so. In this emergency a
friend suggested Reid's German
Cough and Kidney Cure. Mr.
Gove tried it. His condition
was so far gone that he could
not eat and bo he farily lived
upon -this medicine. A a it is
nutricious in it itself and con
tains no poison, he was able to
do this, not only without de
leterous effect, but with posi
tive benefit. The result was
that in a week he began to
mend, and he is now hale and
hearty. He had pleurisy for
some three years, but on his
recovery from his cough, he
found that his pleurisy had left
-him to. Considering Mr. Gove's
great age, this is one of the
most remarkable cures that
have been effected by Reid's
German Cough and Kidney
