At last a medical work that tells the causes,
describes the effects, points the remedy. .This
is scientifically the most valuable, artistically
the most beautiful, medical book that has ap
peared for years ; 96 pages, every pane bearing
a half-tone illustration in tints. Some of the
subjects treated are Nervous Debility, Impo
tency, Sterilitv, Development, Varicocele, The
Husband, Those intending Marriage, etc.
Every man who would know the grand truths,
the plain facts, the old secrets, and the lira
discoveries of medical science as applied to
married life, Who would atone for past 'ollies
and avoid future pitfaTs, should write for th s
wonderful little book. ' ' 1 s,-i,t tree,

lie Played Simple Melodies For Grant and
One of the attaches of the North Da
kota senate house at Bismarck is an old
colored man named Blakely Durant.
His -(far history was made under the
camp sobriquets of "Blake" and "Old
Shady," and the last mentioned -was
given to him on account of a Bong by
that title, -which he often sang at the
headquarters of the Army of the Tennes
see. Grant, Sherman, McPherson and
other generals of the western army were
entertained by the simple melodies f
the musical darky, who accompanied his
songs by twanging the guitar, which he
y ;'OLl Shady" was the favorite piece of
Gcnvral (irant, and he called fur it
whenever he spent the evening at Mc
pherson's eanipfire, where Blake was
employed as a caterer for the mess.
The song on the lips of a real contra
band in the bivouacs of tho lilierating
army was particularly appropriate, it,
ran as follows:
fli, yah, yah, darkies, eorce hingh vrlth rr.e.
Wira do white follis Ecy dat "Old Shady" ;a
Don't yon see dat tic jnbilee

Blake, or "Old Shady," as ho was best
known, joined the army as cook for the
officers of tho Seventj'-first Ohio regi
ment and was on the field at Shiloh.
He afterward shipped on tho steamer
Magnolia, which was used as transport
for Grant's headquarters at the opening
of the Vicksbnrg campaign. During
that time "Old Shady" came to tho
notice of the commander, and he en
gaged him as cook; but, true to his
vagrant nature, the darky asked for
transportation home on a brief vi-'it as
a bonus and failed to report back for
duty at the end of his furlough. SuV
sequently he fell in with the steward of
MePherson's mess, was employed as
cook for a time and then became chief

A friend of mine bad an odd way of mixing her
words. Perfectly nncoosciotis of it, she would
often make folks laugh. She would speak of feel
ing "leak and wccble." for weak and feeble, and
"castor ill poils," for castor oil pills. But she
was weak and feeble, nntil she took that power
ful, invigorating tonic, "Favorite Prescription,"
which so wonderfully imparts strength to the
whole system, and to the womb and its append
ags In particular. For over-worked women,
run-down women, and feeble women generally.
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription is uncqualed.
It Is invalnable in allaying and subdalnz nervous
excitability, irritability, eihatti'tlon, pro.-tratlon,
bypteria, spasms, and other distressing, nervous
symptoms, commonly attendant uton fnnctiona
and organic dseae. it induces refreshing sleep
and relieves mental anxiety and despondency.
We have sold Ely's Cream Balm
about three years, and have recom
mended its use in more than a hun
dred special cases of catarrh. The
unanimous answer to our inquiry is,
"It's the best remedy that I have
ever used." Our experience is. that
where parties continued its use, it
never fails to cure. J. II. Montgom

When I began using Ely's Cream
Balm my catarrh was so bad I had
headache the whole tinie and dis
charged a large amount of Clthy mat

peared and I have not had headache
since. J. II. Summers, Stcphney,

to Scott's Emulsion of Cod

between the oil, in its plain
