Whose shrouded outlines hint, of glories gone!
So close together stand his tall successors,

And spell the awe in one another’s eyes.
Like to the shirt of Nessus, quaint and deadly.
The poisoned armor of the ivy clings . .
To these strong trunks, with ominous leaves veined
The ah-Cis lull ot sleep and no bird sings.
But ’twixt the fallen houghs, interlaced and mossed
A silvery, steadfast glistening doth bre^k.
Not even these withered trees, aslant and bossed,
Can hide the secret ot the forest lake.

That for long years no taee hath one reflected.
Nor voice hath made the other's echoes wake?
If thou art like to these, lone heart, forget not
How safe they lie on Nature’s wholesome breast;
If thou art like to these, thou wilt regret not

THE PORTLAND
Kerosene Oil Company
Would inform the public, that they continue to
Manufacture
Portland Kerosene Oil.
The prevalence of a large quantity of inferior and
dangerous oils in the market, at a ch ap price—many
of which are little better than Naptha itself—and the
existence of false reports in regard to the Portland
Kerosene Oil. renders it a matter of justice to our
selves, as well as safety to consnmers, ’hat some no
tice should be taken of these facts. Therefore, we
again present an advertisement, and would call atten
tion to the high standard o rour Oils. The Refined
Petroleum, the fire test of which is 122; The Port
land Kerosene, the fire test of which is 125 degrees
Fahrenheit, and often reaches considerably higher;
also, we would say, that we are determined to main
tain their long established reputation.
PORTLAND KEROSENE OIL COMPANY.
We quote from chap. 39 li. S. 1871, the title of said
chapter being “Inspection and sale oi Manufactured
Articles.”
Sect. 31. Every person and corporation engaged
in manufacturing petroleum, coal oil or burning fluid
shall cause every cask or other vessel thereof to be
so inspected anti marked, by a sworn inspector, And
if any person manufactures or sells such oil or burn
ing fluid not so inspected and marked in this State,
or that has not been so inspected and marked as un
safe for illuminating purposes, he shall pay a fine
not exceeding Five Hundred dollars or be imprison

EXPLOSIONS.
Philadelphia, Dec. 24, 1873.
I SELDOM, if ever, pick up a newspaper without
seeing, among the first items that arrest my at
tention, the record of a terrible boiler explosion.
Very many causes are assigned for this loss of life
and property. A great dew is said as to wbat should
be done and what should not be done. But I scarce
ly ever hear it said that these explosions are due to
an accumulation of Scale in the Boiler, and yet eight
out of ten instanc s that occur in our midst are un
doubtedly due to this cause.
Now, permit me to say that I manufacture a Com
position that will readily and thoroughly remove this
incrustation; and while I am constantly sending it
over the United States, I exact no pay for its use un
less it gives perfect satisfaction and fulfils all *he
claims I make for it.
My preparation will remove Scale from any Boiler,
no matter how deep may be the incrusat on, and at
the same time it will prevent injury to the Boiler
from anything which may be held in solution by the
water contained in it. This article will absolutely
prevent the formation of Scale if timely introduced.
The powder which I manufacture has bepn care
fully tested by some of the ablest chemists in the
country, and its fitness to keep iron clean aud to
preserve it has been demonstrated by them in the
most satisfactory manner.
If you will send for my circular,with my terms and
full particulars, or give me a call, I think I will be
able to convince the most sceptical that this compo
sition will justify all I claim for it.
Very respectfully yours,
GEO. W. LORD.] 1
