B. HARTMAN & Co., Colum bus, Ohio: I keep the largest stock of medicines of any store in Lewis coun ty, with the exception of a drug store at Vanceburg, our county seat, and am selling a great deal of your PsRUNa and MANALIN. It is giving the best satisfaction of any medicine that I ever handled. In one case the consta ble of the precinct had been very sick and low spirited for a long time. For several years he has tried all the doctors here, and we have some good ones, and they did him no good. Af ter much persuasion I sold him two bottles of PERUNA and MANALIN. He took half of the medicine. I could see a great change in him, and now he is as sound a man apparently as there is in this vicinity, and hesays he is en tirely well. He is a number one man and is highly respected. He is satisfied that your medicine'saved his life, after all the doctors and all medicines had failed. Being unacquainted with you I refer you to John Shillito & Co., Al tor, Pinckard & Co., and other businees houses of Cincinnati. B. L. GILLESPIE, P. da Messrs. Adamson & Shipley, of Waynesburg, Pa., write: "Please send us some 'Ills of Life" immediately. We are having a big run on your medi cine, PERUNA. Instead of dying out, like most medicines, in course of time, it seems to be growing in favor. We sell lots of it. Please send the books soon" Messrs. Wirthorn & Urban of Alle gheny City, Pa., write: "Raving a large sale for your PERUNA and MAN ALIN, we have also many calls for your book, 'Ills of Life' Please send us a supply of them, German and English, and oblige." 8. Wolf & Son, Wilmot, O., write: "Gentlemen: We handle your goods and they give good satisfaction." A. G. Sellard Greenup, Ky., says: "Gentlemen:I am handling your medicines, and having a good trade in them." J. C. Saunders, Martinsburg, W. Va., writes: "Gentlemen: Your PE RUNA sells fast and gives good satisfac tion here. We sell more PERUNA than any other preparation we handle." W. Bauer, St. Marys, Pa., writes: "My son is still improving in health. Your PERUNA is just the thing for him." Adolph, Bakhaus & Co., Spri nfield, O., write: "We are having a good sale for PERUNA. It sells as well as any medicine we have, and gives the very best satisfaction." Notice for Publication. LAND OrFIce At New Orleans, La., July 1, 1885.

A diminutive but very pompous looking specimen of humanity, with a dollar diamond ornamenting his cravat, entered the business office and asked for the sporting editor. Introduced to the latter personage the stranger produced a sheet of pa per about ten inches square and submitted it. "This is my card," he said. "I desire to confer with you concerning my circus, a mam moth circus, the circus of circuses, sir. I desire you to describe in your paper-four miles of cages for wild animals, among which are twelve new species of elephants alone, and a recently discovered wonderful nondescript from Africa, weighing 3000 pounds. We employ 107000 persons. I have imported artists of the very first class from Europe at 8500 per week, in order to offer the very best to the public." "Real ly ?" "Yes, sir, and a man like you, whose famous pen lights up two hemispheres--". "How many columns do you want 7" Here the newspaper man interrupted the elo quence of the small man. "As many as pospible," was the answer, after which the journalist asked when the circus was to arrive. "In a few months, for transportation re quires so much -time that we can travel but slowly; besides we trav el more for pleasure than to make money." "Yes, I can understand that," was the answer. "Well, our terms are $150 per column, cash in advance, and thirty per cent of the receipts of every representation ad- 1 ditional" The face of the circus man lengthened. "But isn't that rather steep ?" said he. "Oh, it would be so with a one-horse sheet like the New York Herald or the London Times, but we publish so gigantic a paper that this price is in reality very low. We consume daily eighteen freight trains of pa per, and our journal is printed upon fifty great Waller presses, which never stop for a moment. The ex penses for steam amount to $10,000 per day. By shortening the paper one-eighth of an inch, recently, the proprietor saved sufficient money to enable him to build four school houses, at $40,000 each and have enough left to found two foundling hospitals in every township in the United States. The proprietor does not publish the paper with the pur pose of making money, but only for the benefit of his health and from love for the public. The workshops in which our paper is folded are all four times as large as Pulnlman's entire establishmentY" "Are those 'workshops here 1" soft- i ly asked the circus man. "Why, certainly not I This is only a small branch office for circus advertise ments. Our main office is-" Tbe circus man did not wait for the rest, but hastily closed the door fromt without.- [Exchange. Il -FOR everyvthihg needed in ieI house furnishing line, call on I"il ler, Brady & Co., who will sell you t these goods at astonishingly low t figures. You will be well repaid c for your visit.( Who Was Thomas W. Patterson1 We yesterday received the fol lowing communication dated at East Saginaw, Mich., and publish it ho ping that the letter mailed 21 years ago may finally reach its destina tion. The writer, Newton H. Cul ver, 823 Monroe street, pays : "I wish to know the whereaboots of Thomas W. Patterson, who was a member of Co. D. Fifteenth Reg iment, Twenty-second brigade, 2' Division, C. S. A., camped at Har risonburg, La., Aug. 9, 1864. At that time I was a member of Earle's Scouts with headquarters at Nat chez, Miss. I had previously served three years in Co. C. 4th Wisconsin Cavalry. On or about the above named date, we captured a large Confederate mail. Among the many letters was one written by Mr. P. to' his father; a model letter; one I have read many times and always with profit. I of ten read it to my boys, now grow ing into manhood, and commend-it to them as one breathing forth the true Christian and filial spirit. In one corner is this note : 'Should any one misplace this letter 1 hope he will do the favor to forward it.' I( now at this late date, nearly twen ty-one years after, will, as far as possible comply, by saying if Mr P., or, if he is not living, any of his relatives will give me their ad dress, I will forward the letter.? --[Natchez Democrat, July 22d.

DOUBLE ELOPEMENT.-We . are informed that on Tuesday lat, Miss Mary Fort and Miss Sallie Hays, daughter of L. . Hays, Esq.,of the Third Ward, ran away and married two brothers, Perry and William Sled. We are informed, that the ceremony was performed by G. W. Sample, Esq., of the Eighth' Ward. Neither of the girl' were of age, Miss Fort the elder, being, 13 and Miss Hays 10 years of age.. The parents are very angry, but it it is too late now to do any good. There seems to be an epidemic of elopements in that section as the Worsham Hatcher marriage, was also a run-away match.-=De Soto Democrat. * -THE Summer is sufficicently advanced in New Orleans to fix its sanitary character. We are to have it is now safe to say, a summer of unusual healthfulness. - There are no opposing elements of bad health lurking around ; no big bodies of water from the oe-erflow drying up to breed maleria because we had no overflow this winter; no troub lesome diseases hidden in the pur lieus of the city; and the epidemni ics that linger in the tropical coun tries to the south 'of us 'always threatening our shores may now be considered as safely avoided-[Neh w Orleans Time-Degmnorat.
