both In Ireland and the United SWates, hnd
caused very great loss to planters in this
e->untry and created a famine abroad. It
I usually noticed between the first and
middle of August, and always In damp or
rainy wqather. The disease attacking the
leaves first, the crop may be saved by har

ance of the leaves is seen. The potatoes
should be put in a cool, dry place to pre.
vent the further growth of fungi. Plant
lug early varieties which ripeu in July is a
pretty sure preventive, as the disease is
confined in its attack chiefly to growing
vines. It Is well, however, to burn or oth.
erwise destroy all affected vines and tubers,
to prevent the spread of the fungus. At.
temptshave been made to produce potatoes
which shall be proof against the disease,
but thus lai with indifferent success, for
though certain varieties may for a while
appear to be disease proof, yet they suc
cumb after a fewyews' growth In localities
where the rot exists. The English farmers
think they have learned to avod the rot,
by planting pure, clean seed in new land,
and by manuring an the autumn and add
ing potash salts in spring. But such pro
cautions are not sure preventives in this
SwiNE RAISING. -Pure air' helps to make
pure blood, which, in the course of nature,
builds up healthful bodies. Out-of-doors
pigs woula not show so well at the fairs,
and would yrobably be passed over by
judges and people who have been taught
to admire only the fat and helpless things
which get the prizes. Such pigs are well
adapted to fill lard kegs, whereas the stan
dard of perfection should bhe a pig which
will make the most hiam with the least
waste of fat, the longest and (ieepes, sides,
with the most leIan meat; it should have
bone enongh to allow it to stand up and
help itsel to food. and carry with it the
evid nee of health and natuzal deve'o)ment
in all its parts. Pigs which run in a range
or pastuie have good appetites-the tresh
air and exercise give them this-hence they
will eat a great variety of food, and much
coarser than when conflued in peas. Noth
ing need go to waste on the farm for lack
of a market. Tacy will consume all the
refuse fruit, roots, )iipkins, and all kinds
of vegeliibles, which will make them grow.
By extending the root patch, and planting
fodder corn thinner, so that nubbins will
form on it, and by putting in a sweet va
riety, the number of pigs may be increased
in proportion. A few bushels of corn at
the end of the season will finish off the-pig.
The pig pasture will be renidy the next
year for any crop, and ten times the ad
vantage accrue to the farm than if the pigs
are confined in close pens, for, as pigs are
usually managed oil the farm, but little
manure is ever made froin them.
Tu ergot of rye or spurred rye, so call
ed because of its resemblance to the spur
of a cock, is used in medicine, but is an
active poison If taken in large doses, and
in some countries has caused great loss
among cattle that have caten it. Ergot
also arows upon grasses as well as upon
rye, and abortion often follows its develop
ment in pastures and mowing fields. It Is
however, confined to the heads of plants,
and pastures which are closely fed can not

DEAR In-Some years ago I was
taken with Inflammation of the lungs, and although
treated by twoof the best physicians of this city, I
gradually grow worse, until I had hemorrhages
quite frequently. They usually occurred in the
morning, and averaged fully a pint of clear bood
at a time. I had night sweats every night, and my
weight, which was 169 lbs. when I was lirst taken
sick, gradually ran down to 128 lbs. My nights
were almost sleepless, owing to severe pain in my
breast, baotc and shoulders, and a continual cough.
I was so sick that my physicians gave up all hope
of my recovery. I then began to try medicines
that I saw advertised, but without any lasting
beneft. At last, by the advice of a friend, I con
cluded to use your remedies.
I began by using all your medicines as you di
rect, and in a very short time all my worst synhp
torns left me and I began to gain in every way. As
my appetite came back I gained flesh very fast.
Fromn June to November the increase was over
fity pounds. My present weight is 1T4 pounds, and
has been about that since my recovery several
years since. I was toid by my physicians that I
had Consurnpiio gauq -

Dear Sir-Iu February last I waq sulring
terribly with shortness of breath and a dry, hack
ing cough, which were caused by a heavy cold. I
could not raise anything from mny lungs, and it
sometimes seemned as if I would choke to (doath.
Tis continued for several weoks, when I con
sulted a doctor here, who told me that my right
iung was dead and I had no use of it. Soon after
this, I consulted two other physicians, who both said
that I could net live, that my right lung was gone
and my left iba~lly ulcerated. My friends, of
course, had no hope for my recovery after this,
and I had none myself. About the lirst of May I
was called on by a friendl, who advIsed me to give
your mnedicines a trial. I concluded io do, so, but
[ did not believe that there was any tihing that
wouldi do me any good. At this time I had cold
night. sweats, and many nights I was unale to lay
down. My feet and iegs were badly swollen. Soon
after I began io take your remedies, I raised large
quantitles of yellow matter, which gave me great
relief. I[took the Mandrake Pills, Seaweed Tonic
and Pulmonic Syrup, according to the directions
on thme wrappers, and by the itrst of July 1 began
1o gain in strengthm, andl my comtgh was much bet,
ter. About tihe first of August my cough was en
tirely gone, mny appetite was pretty good, and by
the tast of September I was well enough to go to
work on the farm. I have been well ever since,
andi to-dlay enjoy better health than I ever did.
Feeling that it is to you that I owe my life, I offer
you the muost sincere thanks of a gratefui man. I
advise ali who are aillicted with ug disease to
use your medlielno, and I will gladly answer alt
letters front those who are aflluted, or if they will
call on me I will give tihem good proof of whatd I
have written, as very many peopie residing here
knowv of my ease.

Dear Sir-i write this to let you know that my
little daughuter Ilenrietta, whom you saw on your
visit to this oily in the fall of 1879, has entirely re
coveredl her health by the use of your Medicines.
I wish also at the same time to give you some
facts In regard to her case which I did( not have
time to do when you were here. My daughter was
:onlsiidered a healthy child until the month of No
vemnber, l8T8, when she was attacked with Itemnit
teni Fever. with which she was sick for a long
l ime. As site was recovering front it she took a
heavy coid, which settled ont her lunge, producing
a constant hacking cough. As severai of her
muotheir's relatIves had didd of Consiuption, we
weurc much iroubled in regard to her case, espec
uailiy as our physician told tie that her lungs were
weak, anmd itter her cough had contiued some
timue, that they were seriously affected, i~e pe
uiribed any things for her, principatlly cod lIver
aa I andl stianta; but she kept getting worse and
worse, umntilat last he told uis that there was no
hope for her recovery ; and, to satisfy us that he
hatt doine ali that it was possible for him to dho,
"ailed in twoather doctors. They, after consulta
tion, agreed that she must (lie and that all we
could do was to make her oomfortable while she
lived. This was in the month of September, 1879.
.\lihougha we were assured by our physician that
auir lttle dlaughiter could not get well, yet we were
idways iooking over the papsers to try to find some.

''e the statements of many who had bencureE

Dear Sir-I am anxious that others should
know of the great curative properties of your
medicines. For three years I wa.s afilicted with a
constant cough, accompanied by an expectoration
of ropy phlegm. My cougn was so bitt tian i coni.
sleep very little, (lay or night. I lost myv appetite.
and was very much reduced in flelsh, and was le
weak that It was 31s much as I coull do to walk U
square. I used all the remedies that were r~com.
mended by friends, anl many that I saw adver
tised in the papers, but received no reie f roiu
their use. At last, I was taken with a severe hem
orrhage, which reduced te still more. Soon after
this ily wife procured one of your books and
reading the description of my disease in it, 411o in.
slated on my giving your rermedoig a tril. My
daughter, who resides in Albany, N. Y., also wrote
about this time that sihe had heard of several
cures there by their use; and so I was Induced to
I beinan by using all three of your medicines at
one time, as you direct; that is, the Mandraku
Pills, Seaweed Tonic andi Pulinonle Syrup. I could
see that they were doing inc good froin tile first
ray appetite improved, I beeame gradually
stronger, and my cough was so mit better that I
rest quite comfortably all night, a thing I have not
done before in imany iontlitis. Now, after using
the medicine for about six weeks, I ant well.

was cured of Consumption by Dr.
I believe that my daughter had Consumption of
the Lungs, and that the use of your inedicinos
saved her life. I nursed her through her sickness,
and she was so bal for a long tine that we had no
hope of her recovery. I can only a I tiat the at
count that she gives in the following letter Is ta ue
in every particular.
MRS. LYDIA A. TAFT.
Dear Sir-I will give you as nrar as I nn
an aoeount of ily sliv'nes, as ast,, iny recovery
by the use of your great iedlicines. Tile irst
symptom of disease that attracted particular at
tention was a severe pain in my lungs. This came
on while I was attendri~g Sc hool anti on lly going
home one evening my mother twight it best to
consult a doctor i regarI to it. After ain exam-.
ination of my lungs, fie spoke quite hsciuragingly
of my case, saying that liy Iings were seriously
affected, and that tle chances for mny recovery
were not very good. I was soon afo-r attackedl
with hemorrhage, raising a half a cup of blood at
a time. After this I iad a choking cough whih
kept me awake almost tihe whole niglt, rind also
severe night sweat.s which weakened ine so that I
was at last confined to my hed. I h1ad no appLe
tte, and had conrstant pains in lmy sidei an( back
but most severe iI mliy right lung. My brother waA
thle one who frst told us of your met ie saying
that lire had heirr4 of a reiikarle cure bein~g per1
formed by them. From his recommiren Intion we
con'luded to use thei. I began by using thie Pul
noncl Syrup alone, but was afterwaris told that I
must take the Mandrake I'ifls and Seaweed Tonic
at the sane time. This I did; that is, I took alt at
one time as you direct, only that from my great
weakness I was obliged to begin with smaller
doses than you prescribe. I graduially gained lin
strengh,i however, so that I was able to take full
doses. My strengthr inicreasedl as the mredicines
began to act ont imy system, and soon iiy worst
irmptoms were gone, my aplpetlte increased, and
I is gave me strenrgtht to get, tip arid take exercise.
I was at iast well, anul have had good health ever
