That our American forests abound In
plants which possess the most valuable
medicinal virtues is abundantly attested
by scores of the most eminent medical
writers and teachers. Even the untu
tored Indians had discovered tho useful
ness of many nativo plants before the
advent of the white race. This informa
tion, imparted freely to tho whites, led
the latter to continue Investigations until
to-day we have a rich assortment of most
valuable American medicinal roots.

Owing to a number of inquiries rel
ative to the rumor that the New
York State Legislature has passed a
bill to pension their Civil War soldiers,
sailors and their widows, Attorney
F. E. Booslnger recently wrote the
New York Secretary of State relative
to the matter and received a reply
tins week Htating that the bill had
not become a law. It has not yet
been approved by the Governor, and
after it is signed, it will go to the
people for vote next November. It is
impossible for the act to take effect
within a year.
