Lewiston, I.T., Oct. 12, 1883.
Dear Sut: —I take j Im.-uro in adding
mv testimony to that of olbers who have
spnki-n of'the merits of your eonipound,
I "Eureka Speeilic." Last June I began
; to cough slightly; said caugh increased in
I severity up to the last, of August. The
j symptoms accompanying the cough wore
! loss of strength, flesh and appetite. 1
I raised at first a frothy matter, afterwards
changing to a yellowish matter like pus.
I used every means known to myself, to
arrest the
me must
disease, which experience told
»diu consumption. But in j
spite of my eflorts dinrtrd by some know!
edge ol Hygiene, and the laws ol health, i
i A .....nit i , ■
I glow worse until 1 took your compound
when after a few doses 1 raised all matter :
from my lungs without effort. My cough
grew less; my strength increased, and 1
am now, at this time, well and strong
I took two and omi-bulf bottles of Eureka
Specific. Wm. Wind,
Probate Judge, Nei I'erce C'o.,l.T.
Cameron, Ncz Perec Co., I. T.,
December 111, 18,>2.
Gentlemen: —During tbe rebellion,
while in the army, 1 contracted a severe I
cold, and ever since have hen, troubled !
with u distroKsin^ cou^n. I tiiou every
remedy I heard of but could get no perm
ale nt relief. If exposed to the raiii and j
got tlie least wet a severe cough would j
set in which sometimes confined me to j
bed lor weeks. My friends as well as mv-1
U* i • ,i . . ii b
self were apprehensive that it would result |
in a confirmed consumption. A frieod
reeomnjended your Eureka Sjiecifie. J i
tried one bottle, which greatly relieved j
me. I got another and before using it I
was almost cntirt ly relieved ul my couuh I
and am now able to perform my didly !
work as J used to do before the war, uud ;
un satisfied that by it* use I shall he j
peruianantly cured, i therefore cheer
fully recommend it to all who are suffer
ing from cold or cough, or other bronchial
diseases, as an infallible cure.
Yours very respectfully,
Isaac N. McUov.

liminary exercises uud an earnest nnd
appropriate prayer from the Rev. Tomer,
presiding older of the Methodist church,
tbe Rev. A. U. Hutchins of the Uuivcr
salist church read his text from Deut.
Ill, 1-1, and spoke substantially as follows:
1 i I time of rejoicing referred to in tny
text, was at the feast of Tabernacles, or
It was a time when all
at tli were gathered and
safely secured. On this occasion all or
j dinary labor was usually suspend, and
j from the fact that this festival was or
j d,lined in Wisdom, so as to interfere os
t;..i -, , . , . , ...
little as possible with (he industry of the
| 1 J
l' e< '!>><'• most of them could generally par
i tieipate. Cunsei|iirntly it was a feast of
j rejoicing, and the children of Israel eele
bralnd their Thanksgiving with appro
I . „„
! ' imte * crv,cp an, ' wrcmon 3 r - T,le Wls -
; d '"'' (li ' clearly seen in the sp
j point went and regulation of tills and
other feasts, they had a tendency to unite
the people, and to cultivate a feeliug of
gratitude and thankfulness. As a propm t
Moses stood high with his people; as a
law giver, he stands pre-eminently so in
estimation of all; for the general spirit
! of justice and freedom, may be traced to
(the Moasic Code. There we find pro
j T i s i„ M!l made for the poor, for the widow
, and the fatherless; no rejoicing should be
i s '.' 10 cxcludo '•»cm from a thanks
giving feast. A Jewish beggar is rarely
seeu, tiie rich care for the poor, and the
• | aw 0 p Moses in this rcsiteel at least ex
j <jrU an iuflaenoe „„ th „ worU to . da , (So
| y „ u tl»at in this Thanksgiving least,
bo c,nl<,r< n °' Urael bad tho opportune
•)' u > rejoice unitedly together. There,
gratitude found au expression, and gem-r
! ,,„s feelings wa re awakened i n behalf of
j th , , wr; .here the Israeli jras remind
| , . ^
I e<1 that h[ * ,atllt>rs l»een bondmt n in
I
Egypt, and slaves to a fore'tgu power,
that they had been restored to liberty and
become possessors of a country, that ac
cording to figurative language, flowed
''with miik aud honey." Hence how
natural, that j,raise, and giving of thanks j
liould he ascribed to them. Who had I
" 1 »*- am.nu™ »u »m-m. »» no imu ;.
1 pK.vi.lt-d for all their wants? In the his- j
i
tory ol the Buritans, who first settled !
New England, we find many things situ
ilar to those recorded of the Israelites '
They too, were slaves to a foreign eccles- !
iastieism, they were denied the right of
r
private judgement and public worship,
they had served task masters, who impos
: e l fumis, and ceremonies, as a substitut
! for the flee, spontaneous outponngs of
I hie-huiuau heart. So they escaped, the/
I fled, they tame lo New England under «
I
Divi, purpose. We all know their hia*
tory, how they struggled nnd how they
prayed. Wo know how bravely they
endured tho rigors of a NeW England
winter; threatened with famine and by ■
savage foe, still they trusted in God,
though He had seemingly forsaken them.
The wind howled round their lowly hnU,
the htorui rushed madly from the furet,
the ti reo and savage Philip, with kilt
wild tribe» of Indians, lurked in evaiy
shaded dell, still these men of iron nerv*
were firm, they would not give up thtlv
trust in an overruling Power. Waa not
the Gad of Israel tho God of the Pilgrim*?
They still trusted, cron when tho gaunt
skelefbn of famine could be found fan
every house; they wrestled in prayer till
they fainted from sheer exhaustion, aud
when at lust, help came, and that ship
from Old England, loaded with provisions,
sailed up the bay, liko a bi uutiful broad
winged bird, there was not a skepti*
among that little band, they all rejoiced,
and gave tha iks unto Bud, for they had
not trusted in vain. But time psmd,
the seasons came and went, tho hills no
longer looked bleak and dreary, for smell
crops of yellow waving grain greeted th*
eye in every direction. So m came th*
harvest, aud then came a New England
Thanksgiving diou. r. This custom ha*
been observed, until it bas become fixed
in I he hearts of this people. It is no
longer local but g ueral. Tho President
of the United States has appointed th*
—Dth of November as a day of Thank*»
giving, and has recommended t i-.i allie*
ular business, so far as possible, be laid
aside, and that all men, irrespective of
creed or party, appropriately observe thi*
day. 'The acting ( tovernor of thi* Ter
ritory approves the recommendation of
the President and lias issu 'd his procla
mât ion tothat effect. F or 1 1 is purpose,
my Christian friends, we are gathered her*
this morning. Wc come to express in a
publie manner, our heart felt gratitude
for uutold oiiss n -, \ a ire not so blind,
but « lint wo c: n see, tu ;t they all com*
from one me: liaustible source; the j*ys
which constitute the sunshine of our life;
the pov.ere which have made us strong
and alii to overcome difficulties; th*
influence and the energy which havo
helped us to lay hold of eternal life, alk
come from One who delights in onr hap
piness ami rejoices in our triumphs. I
know that there are some things to can**
sadness, as wo naturally look back to-day,
over the joist year, very few have fully
realized their expectations kindled on*
year ago, few in cd n ie have not met
with disappointments au d keen sorrow,
few who have not soi n troubles and dif
ficulties, which were not inventoried in'
their jirospectirc stock of cxjieriencc, for
a coining year, fortunes have been lost
and won, sickness and death havo been
busy harvesting . and sorrow. There
have been illegitimate speculations, enor
mous frauds in some of our moneyed in
stitutions, commercial disasters, railroad
eollissions, terrifie stor 11 - aud cyclones and
earthquakes, all attended with great ioaae
of proptrty and li e. i.m ti .tv thstand
ing all these sad features, incidental t*
iiunian experience, we have mu h cans*
for gratitude. Wo can bless God, even
in adversity, for thankfulness, whiah de
P'-nils on unbroken prosperity, is not fit
to he called gratitude. Looking at onr
country as a whole, we hare groat
cause to rejoice. When we take into ac
count all our blessings in the aggregate,
wo find that they vastly outnumber the
sorrows and adversité'» of life. Wc have
had seed time i n 1 harvest; God has given
us the "finest wheat," the earth lias yield
