THE CITY.
Job Office Material— We call the atten
tion of country newspapers to the advertise
ment of Mr. Ward, in this weeks paper. He
has for sale a large lot of new and excellent
printing material, consisting of presses and ev
erything necessary for a newspaper or job of
fice. at as low prices as the same can ,be pro
cured for in Chicago, or Cincinnati.
A Row occurred a night or two ago. AN e
give a lucid aecouut of it, compiled from the
information we drained from the Police Court:
“Twenty boatmen stauding at the Montreal
House— one of them made some noise; officer
Miller told him to keep still— stuck his face iu
Miller’s and -made a mouth' at him. Miller
told him to take it away or he'd slap it; fellow
wouldn't; Miller slapped it: fellow raised a
muss—man threw a stone at Miller ; Miller
clinched with some one—his pistol went off by
accident. “Jack." another • rushed up to
help : they arrested a man each—took them off
—were tried yesterday morning—one of them
fined 15 dollars and costs—committed in de
lault—the other w ill be tried this morning.”
We got the above at muster call last night,
from twenty policemen. We took the senten
ces dow n in turu, as they gave them.
A Light Artillery Company.— Our Milita
ry force would be complete, now, if we only
ha<l a good Artillery Company. This is the
only branch of the service which is yet unrep
resented. There are two heavy infantry com
panies. one light infantry company, and one
cavalry company: and it now remains for some
of our patriotic young men to go into the
movement, and organise one which will be a
No 1 company. Are there not twenty young
men who are willing to engage in it? It can
be carried on with less expenditure of time and
means than either a cavalry or infantry com
pany. and is certainly as indispensable iu a
parade or celebration as either. Let us then
have an Artillery Company.
New Sectional Mat of Minnesota. —We
wore shown yesterday one of the sheets of a
new Sectional and Township Map of Minneso
ta. published by Sewall & Co., which is cer
tainly the bed. and the only correct map of
this country now published, and can be relied
on by all w ho want a correct guide to all parts
of the Territory. This part of it, embracing
the ,-outh half of the Territory, is now ready
f'.« sale.
The managers of the Theatre complain bit
terly that although the Police are “dead head
ed" every night, and some of them always
there, yet they do nothing to suppress disorder.
T!i ■ other night the doorkeeper requested one
of them to silence or remove two or three half
drunken fellows who were making a noise,
w hen he refused to do it. AA'e wish we knew
the name of this model star!
Mrsic!—We call the attention of our read
er> to Mrs. Nelson’s card in to-day's Minncso
tian. and congratulate those of them who may
desire to become proficients in the delightful
accomplishment of music that an excellent op
portunity is now offered to them. Mrs. Nelson,
who ha- recently come among us, is a pupil of
the world-renouned Ilerr Griesbach ; and her
experience and abilities will, we doubt not, be
duly appreciated by the ladies of St. Paul.
The Formii ot Jn.r.—AVe are pleased to
learn that some effort to celebrate the fourth
in a proper manner is really going to be made.
Several societies and asociatious have express
ed their willingness to unite in any general
movement, or get up a private celebration of
th* ir own. Keep the ball moving, patriotic
citizens, and we will, after all, have a celcbra
tion worthy of our City.
Theatrical. —The Golden Farmer was play
ed la»t night to a full house. Mr. Hamilton in
the character of the Farmer, and Mr. Bernard
a* Jemmy Twitcher, can’t be beat. Miss St.
Clair as Elizabeth, also won repeated applause.
On the whole, it was an excellent performance.
To night is played. The Stranger, together
with a Kiss in the Dark, which bill ought to se
cure a good house.
The P. L. C.— This excellent company
have leased a story in the building occupied
by Marshall & Co., and will use it as an armory
and drill room. They meet on Tuesday eve
nings, we believe.
The Shields Guards, had a street drill night
l>efore last. We did not see them, but heard
them for several hours.
Mir. ami Mks. I). L. Scott, two persons of
considerable celebrity in the dramatic line, will
give a reading this evening at the Winslow
House Hall. They will give some excellent
Dramatic reading and representations. See
bills.
O mission'. — Owing to the lateness of the
hour when we returned from the Theatre on
Monday night, we could not write out any ex
tended notice of the evenings performance.—
We cannot pass by the occasion however, to
commend Miss St. Clair’s playing on that eve
ning. The play, Fazio, was the first Tragedy
brought out this season, and certainly was no
bly done. Miss St. Clair in that most difficult
of her favorite characters, Bianca, was the ad
mired of the whole company. She exceeded
our most ardent expectations. It was the most
true, chaste, real, and faultless personification
of Bianca Fazio wc ever witnessed. We but
echo, in saying this, the opinion of all of the
crowded and intelligent audience who witness
ed the play. All through that long Tragedy,
not a passage, not an incident, but was fault
lessly kept up without flagging in the least in
interest, to the closing scene. This was the
triumph of the whole evening. The entire au
dience rose to their feet, to witness the Ta
bleau. and the curtain went down iu the most
enthusiastic applause.
We can not refrain from speaking here, by
the way, of a too common error in Theatre go
ers. After a tragedy has been well performed,
it is customary to '‘call out’’ the leading actor
or actress, who has just gone through the ‘‘dy
ing scene” so pathetically, before the curtain.
Wc think this is wrong. It break s the effect
and temporary illusion of the play, which is
its chief charm. A thrilling death scene, we
hold, ought to be closed by the curtain, in the
most respectful silence, instead of wild ap
plause by the audience. We venture this as a
hint.
The Varieties. —The Female Gambler was
again performed last night, to a full house. —
Mr. Brace made his first appearance in this
play, which was performed altogether as well
as when we noticed it before with such deser
vedly high praise.
Miss St. Clair's personification of Mad. de
Font agues, was as thrilling and natural as ev
er. Mr. Bernard was also very happy in his
character of Demarest. Templeton and Mere
diih were also perfect in their characters.
We owe the Orchestra a long apology for
not noticing them before. We are sure uny one
who has listened to the sweet tones of Mr.
Ainsworth’s flute, who is a perfect master of
that instrument—or to the excellent playing of
the two violinists, Messrs. Munger, will pro
nounce them the best band which has ever
played here. To their enlivening and well ex
ecuted tunes we are indebted for a relief from
much of the dull tedium of waiting while the
curtain is down.
To-night is played, “Still waters run deep,”
and ‘‘Perfection.’’
THE RIVER.
A Word to Steamboat Captains.— lt hap
pens that nearly every boat which comes into
port, is sued by some of the hands for wages,
Ac., out of which they claim to have been de
frauded. There is no reason for this, as we
can sec. If Captalnß would hire sober, indus
trious crews, and pay them good wages, and
treat them well, they might keep them trip af
ter trip, iustead of having them leave at the
end of the voyage the moment the boat touch
ed shore, and sue it for their wages. Often the
Mates are swearing, rough, blustering fellows,
treating the hands with great severity, and
causing them them to be anxious to leave af
ter a trial of him. By such a course, a boat
loses, rather than gains; and if all such officers
could be induced to treat their men kindly, we
are sure that they might be induced to stay,
and thuß save hunting up a new crew every
time a boat comes into port.

Charley Matuf.r, of the Milwaukee has our
thanks for late papers.

The New York Herald says that since
the discovery of the pearls have been made
in the shells of mussels in New Jersey, let
ters and specimens of pearls have been pour
ing into the jewelry stores of Njw York,
not only from New York, Massachusetts,
Ohio, Michighan and Pennsylvania. This
attests the fact that pearl mussels are found
in tho waters of our State.
The Texas papers state that in the party
of Capt. Edward Beal, of the Pacific wagon

Meat.— Sometimes the live cattle are packed no clou-
In the can that they >lle on railroads, and are probablj
•old afterwards for meat. Then a large number of <ll»-
eaxed cattle were brought down to the New York niarke
on Wednesday, and the street leading to the drove yard
was blockaded with dead and dying oxen; six of these
died during the morning and were removed by the prop
er officers, but the remainder were takeu by respecta
ble butchers. The cattle had been fed on whisky slops,
and their disease was like that which has affected so
many hoga In Ohio.
We clip the above from a New York pa
per. AH those who have complained of the
high price of beef here in St. Paul can draw
some consolation from it. Such practises as
are mentioned these are common we know,
in all large Eastern .cities ; one never knows
what he is getting when he buys meat ii
their markets. But here in St. Paul, noth
ing of the kind troubles him. The cattle
arc brought here in good condition, and kept
fat for use on our own rich sweet Minnesota
grass. Well, who vmilcVut rather pay the
price the butchers demand here, than run
the risk of eating diseased meat ? We thii k
we have the advantage of our Eastern friends
after all, if they dont pay more than 10 cents
per lb. for beef steak*. Wait a few years,
my impatient friend who arrived yesterday,
and exclaims with horror at 20 cts. a pound
for steaks—wait awhile ; the day is coming
when Minnesota will supply St. Paul, then
the New York of the North-AVest, with the
cheapest and best of animal food of every
kind, and send off hundreds of droves to
feed those starving inhabitants of the sea
board, who have refused to emigrate west.
But wo hope that the Directors of the vari
ous Railroads from Hudsons Bay, the Rocky
Mountains, the Tellowstone countrj' in Ne
braska, the Red River Valley, and other
places, each of which shall send in threecat
tle trains per day to feed the 100,000 inhab
itants of St. Paul at that time, will have bet
ter and more humane rules in regard to
carrying them, than to suffocate them on the
cars.
NEWS ITEMS.
A Crystal Palacf. at Cincinnati—
The Enquirer says that the managers of the
Mechanics’ Institute in Cincinnati, have de
cided to erect a building in which to hold
their next annual exhibition, to come off in
September next. The material will be chief
ly glass and iron, and it will be lire-proof,
thus giving a Crystal Palace on a small scale-
Tbe building will be denominated “ The
Emporium of Arts and Manufactures.” The
next exhibition will perhaps be one <ff the
grandest that has ever been held in that
city.
Mr. Olney Bates, of Springfield, Vt.,
says that he has this year made 75 pounds
of sugar from one maple tree, gathering at
one time ten pales of sap in a day. II:s
neighbors couiirm his statements. The tree
stands in an open field, and 15 inches above
the ground, is over fourteen feet in circum
ference. It was tapped this year in eight
places.
A Beautiful Idea. —The building of
Magnolia Lodge, I. O. O. F., Sixth and AYal
nut streets, Cincinnati, 0., was illuminated
during the Railroad Celebration there, nt
night. On each front were three immense
links of fire, formed out of gas jets, wb cii
illuminated the whole building. Those en
twined links were not only particularly aj>-
propriate, as emblems of Odd-Fellowship,
representing Friendship, Love and Truth,
but were emblernetic of the Union of the
three great cities on the American Central
Railway— Baltimore, Cincinnati, and £t.
Louis.
Pennsylvania Politics. —The Fillmore
Know Nothings of Pennsylvania held their
State Convention at Lancaster recently, and
by acclamation nominated Isaac Haziehurst,
of Philadelphia, for Governor, and Jacob
Bloom, of Philadelphia, and Jasper Brady,
of Alleghania, Judges of the Supreme Court,
after a long contest, and great confusion.
Mr. Lendirman, of Berks was nominated for
Canal Commissioner.
The Burdell case is more hotly fought on
the question of the possession of the proper

Mrs. Cunningham presents new and singu
lar evidence in her behalf. Property to the
amount of from ft 100,000 to ft 150,000 is de
pendent upon the issue of this suit. If Mrs.
Cunningham establishes her marriage, she
becomes entitled to a third of it; and if, as
rumor says, she is in the condition which
ladies who love their loids like to be in, she
will get the whole.
Winter in the Lap of Summer.—
There were on the first day of June, masses

The Way they Get Rich in the West.
A friend of oure, fust returned from Kan
sas, whore he has resided for two years,
tells of the high prices of provisions in that
reeion. Flour, last month, was selling at
ftl4 per barrel, molasses ft 1,50 a gallon,
pork 20 cents a pound, and other things at
the same rate. The crops last year were
poor, the winter severe, killing mail}' cattle,
and the army of emigration so large as to
devour all before them. To the quest on,
how did you live?—the answer was prompt.
"Live,” said he, “live on cracked corn ; corn

should have been a rich man.”
Embezzlement in Oxford It is ru

From Salt Lake.
Nen York, June 6.
The Kansas correspondent of the Sun
who has conversed with Judge Stiles, Sui
veyor General Burr, and others, from Utsl
-ays the Mormons laugh at the idea of th«
executive, and companies of federal troops
to enforce obedience, in Utah, of the peo
pie.
They express a determination to resist such
in assumption of authority on the part o<
the government.
Brigham Young, with 350 followers, left
Salt Lake City, April 30, to visit and treat
with tho Indians iu the northern part of his
territory.
He is determined, if it does commence, to
secure possession of the country thereabouts;
or put a stop to the emigration across the
plains.
Every man and boy able to shoulder a
musket, is a soldier, and is required to per
form Military duty almost daily.
It is supposed that the object of his miss
ion is for the purpose of uniting those tribce
with the Mormon force, in preparation for a
war with the U. S.
The Mormons claim that the}’’ numbei
.)5,t)00 in Utah alone.
Gen Burr thinks their population will net
exceed half that number.
They are thoroughly acquainted with thi
country, and all mountain passes, and it
case of a rupture with the U. S. troops, the\
would be a very efficient force, and one thai
would require a large army to conquer.
Robert Emmet and Ills Love.
’Twas the evening of a lovely day the
last day of the noble and ill lated Emmet.
A young girl stood at the gate and desired
admittance into his dungeon.
She was closely veiled and the keeper
could not imagine who she was, nor that any
one of 6uch proud bearing should bean hum
ble suppliant at the prison door. ‘However,
he granted the boon —led her to the dungeon
opened the massive iron door, then closed it
again, and the lovers were alone. He was
leaning against the prison wall with a down
cast head, and his arms were folded upon
his breast. Gently she raised the veil from
her face, and Emmet turned to gaze upon all
that earth contained front him—the girl
whose sun y brow in the days of his boy
hood had been his polar star, the maiden
who had sometimes made him think the
world was all sunshine. The clanking <.|
the chains sounded like a death-knell to her
ears, and site wept like a child. Emmet said
but little, vet he pressed her warmly to his
bosotn, and their feelings had a silent meet
ing, perchance, as is held in heaven only,
when we part no more. In a low voice he
besought her not to forget him when the
cold grave received nis inanimate body—lie
spoke of bygone days—the happy hours ot
childhood, u hen his hopes were bright and
glorious; and he concluded by requestingher
sometimes to visit the places and scenes that
were hallowed to his memory lrom the days
of childhood; and though the world might
pronounce his name with scorn and contempt,
lie prayed she should cling to him with af
fection, and remember lnm when all others
should forget. Hark! the church bell
sounded, anu he remembered the hour ol
execution.
The turn’ey entered, and, after dashing
the tear fiom his eyes, ho separated them
from their long embrace, and led the lady
faotn the dungeon. At the entrance she
turned, and their eyes met —they could not
sad farewell! The door swung upon its hea
vy hinges, and they parted forever. No!
not forever ! is there not a heaven ?
At sunrise next morning he suffered glo
riously ; a martyr to his country and to
liberty.
“Ami on—o'er her the myrtle showers.
In leaves by soft wind- fanned,
She faded ‘midst Italtan flowers—
The last of their fair hand.”
‘Twas in the land of Italy , it was the cor
geous tin e of sunset ol Italy ; what a mag
nificent scene! A pale, emaciated girl* lay
upon the bed of death. Oh ! it was hard fur
her to die far from home in this beautiful
land,where lowers bloom perennial, and the
balmy air comes freshly to the pining soul.
Oh! no; her star had set; tliebrightness of
her dream had faded; her heart was broken.
When ties had been formed on earth,
close, burning ties, “what is more heart
rending and agonizing to the spirit, than to
find, at last, the beloved one is snatched
away, and all our love given to a passing
floweret.” Enough; she died the betrothed
of Robert Emmet; the lovely .Sarah Curran.
Italy contains her last remains ; its flowers
breathe their fragance over her grave, and
the lulling notes of the shepherd’s lute sound
a requiem to her memory.
Woman and IWarriagc.
I have speculated a great deal upon mat
rimony. 1 have seen a young and beautiful
woman, the pride of gay circles, married as
the world says, well. Some have moved in
to costly houses, and their friends have all
come and looked at their furniture and their
splendid arrangements for liapiness, and they
have gone away and committed them to
their sunny hopes without fear. It is natu
ral to be sanguine for them ; as the young
are carried away sometimes by similar feel
ings. I love to get, unobserved into a cor
ner, and watch the bride in her white attire,
and her smiling face and her soft eyes meet
ing me in their pride of life, weave a dream
of future happiness, and persuade myself it
will be true. I think how they will sit
upon the luxurious sofa as the twilight falls,
and build gay hopes and murnier in low
tones the now not forbidden tenderness; and
how thrillingh' the hallowed kiss and beau
tiful endearments of wedded life will make
even their parting joyous, and how gladly
come back from the crowded ami empty
mirth of the gav to each other’s quiet com
pany. I picture to myself that young crea
ture who blushes even now in this hesita
ting course as she listens eagerly for his
footsteps as the night steals on, and wish
ing that he would come and when he enters
at last, and with an afT ction as undying as
his puise, folds her to his bosom, I can feel
the tide that goes flow ing through the heart;
and gaze with him on that graceful form as
she moves about for the kind offices of af
fection, soothing all his unquiet cares, and
making him forget even himself in her young
and unshaded beauty. Igo f rward years
and see her luxuriant hair put soberly away
from I er brow, and her girlish graces resign
ed into dignity, and loveliness chastened
with the gentle meekness of maternal affec
tion. Her husband looks upon her with a
proud eye and shows her the same fervent
love and delicate attentions which first won
her; and their fairy children are grown up
about them, nnd they go on full of honor
and untroubled years, and are remembered
when they died.— Washington Irving.
A Beautiful View— The editor of the
State Journal, Madison, Wis., speaking of
the site of the University Building says :
Standing on this elevated point, overlook
ing the entire lake country, this building
will, on completion, be by far the most
sightly of any in the city or its environs—
visible for twen'y miles in some directions
with a clear sky, and from five to twenty
in every direction. A view from its central
dome, will embrace four or five lakes, and
every beauty of their surroundings pra
ries, openings and forests—hill and dale
level and precipice—a magnificence of scene
ery unexcelled if not unequalled in the en

A Hunt.— Some two months since, some
of our citizens in this vicinity, arranged a
test, hunt, ranging themselves into two par
tins for the killing of gophers, ground squir
rels, black-birds, hawks, Ac., the party
killing the largest number, to win tho wager
of a dinner, to be given by the losing par
ty. Tomorrow is the day set tor the deter
mination of the contest by connting tho
trophies of the various parties. The Dinner
is to be given by Mr. Arnold of the Eureka
House. We understand that the number
of gophers and ground squirrels killed is very
large. The plan is a good one, and has a
double attraction—the riddance of the coun
try of a plague to the crops, and the pleas
ant excitement of a game of chance. We
notice that similar contests have been going
on in several other places in the vicinity,
Medford among others. —ft.

MmmaonAN Office, »
June IS, 1*57. J
The Import! from below hare not been to heavy daring
the pait week at the wtek preceeding. Still business
hat been britk, and tnarkeU are becoming somewhat
settled. There is no signs of a dullue*» appearing yet.
Everybody teems to have enough to <lo, and the demand
for nearly everything we quote It active. The bad
weather hat operated agaiott it somewhat, too, at the
roads were in rather bad travelling order for country
dealers to trade here. Hut now the weather has settled,
and trade resumed its usual briskness.
There has been but little change In anything we quote
below since our lost report, with some few exceptions,
and the rates Wf quote are almost unchanged from last
week’s report. Most of our merchants and dealers have
large stocks now, and the market is well supplied with
nearly everything we quote.
There has been an immense amount of freight landed
on the wharf here since the opening of the Lake, and
although a great amount of the charges has been paid
direct by the consignees, so britk has been trade since,
and so rapid the sales, that almost none feel embarrass
ed by the abstraction of so much money from their
business.
We give below the ruling wholesale prices, drawn
mostly from actual sales, and reliable sources:
FLOUR.—There is but little arriving now, and prices
are still high, ruled by the rates of the Chicago market.
Some few small lots have been sold the past week. We
quote superfine from $8,50 to $7; extra, $7 to 7,50.
The tendency is still upward.
UKAlN.—There has been almost no change In the
prices of grain since our last report.
OATS—Are now selling again at from $1 00 to $t 10.
They were down as low as hoc during the week, owing
to a glutted state of the market.
In corn there has bAn no alteration, although some
lets have arrived from below, and the supply is good.
The prices of grain are so fluctuating now, that these
rates may last only a day or two,
KOGS— are now selling at 18c to 20c per doxenby the
bbl. Small lots continue to arrive.
BUTTER. —There has been no alteration; from 20 to
28c per pound In firkins, and but little in market. Roll
butter from 35c to 40c per lb.
11AY—has gone up to ominous rates. SSO to S6O per
ton is now asked, ami demand active. In fact It is an
alarming reality that there is but little to be had even at
that price. Why do not our farmers see to it, that such
destitution will not occur again. Our broad meadows
ought to furnish enough for home consumption, and for
exporting to less favored neighborhoods also.
WOOD—is at the old rates of from $6 to $7,50. Quite
a trade in this article has sprung up along the Minnesota
Valley, and large lots are brought down in barges now.
PROVISIONS. Pork firm at $27 per barrel.—
Bacon from 14)4 to 15c per lb; Potatoes $1,40 per
bushel; Beans $4 to $5 per bushel; Corn Meal $2,50 per,
sack; Crackers $5 to 6,50 per bbl. The market it well
stocked with all kinds of provisions now, though there
is but little alteration in the quotations of last week. The
trade in Provisions has been very and demand
active, generally.
GROCERIES—Coffee, Ulo, 14)£c per lb; Java, 19c per
lb; Tea, green 50a90c per lb: black, 40&75c do; Rice,
Sc per Ih, Brown, Sugar, 13a15c per lb; Loaf do 17al$c
perlb; Molasses, 80 to 85c per gal., in market; Caudl s,
Star, 80ai!2c perlb; Tallow do 17a20c per In; Codfish
SalOc perlb; Lard Oil, $1,40 per gal. Thu trade in
Groceries has been gosd during the past week, and de
mand active,
FRUlT—Apples,dried, 12)fal6c per lb., by the bbl.
green apples, none in market. Peaches, 12>£c to 16c
per 11)., by the bbl.
FRESH MEAT—Beef, 16a20c per lb; Mutton, 20c per
lb; Pork, 20c per lb; Veal, 15a20c per lb.
LIVE STOCK, —The demand is very active, and

prices are still unaltered. We quote from sales : Beef

medical discovery, and is dally working cures, almost
too great to believe. It cures as if by magic, even the
first dose giving benefit, and seldom more than one bot
tle is required to cure any kind of Liver Comp aint, from
the worst Jaundice or Dyspepsia to a common headache,
all of which are the result of a diseased Liver.
The Liver is one of the principal regulators of tho
human body, and when it— performs Its functions well
the powers of the system are fully developed. The
.-toinach is almost entirely dependant on the healthy
action ot the Liver for the® proper performance of Its
functions when the is at fault, the bowels
are at fault, an 1 the whole system suffers in conse
quence of one organ—the Liver having ceased to
do its duty. Fortliediseas.p* es of that organ, one of the
proprietors has made it his study in a practice of
more than twenty years,® to find some remedy where
with to counteract the many derangements to
which it is liable. To prove that this remedy is at last
found, any person with Liver complaint in
any of its forms has but to try a bottle, and convic
tion is certain. A pound has been formed by
dissolving gurus and ex- trading that part which is
soluble for the act ve vir-* - 'tuesof the medicine. These
gums remove all morbid or bad matter from the sys
tem, supplying in their CC place a healthy flaw of bilo
invigorating the stomach » and causing food to digest
well, purifying the giving tone and health to
the whole machinery, re- moving the causes of the
disease, and effecting a ra-H-dical cure without any of
the disagreeable effects felt . by using Calomel or mine
ral poison that is usually resorted to. One dose after
eating is sufficient to re- lieve the stomach, and pre
vent the food from rising Jf 3 and souring. Only one dose
ttken before retiring vents night-mare. Only one
d ise taken at night loosei s — the bowels gently, and
c ires costiveness. One dose taken after each meal
will cure dyspepsia. One d.se of two teaspoonful*
wid always relieve the sick ® head-ache. One bottle ta
ken tor female obstruc- Eh tlons removes the cause of
the disease. Only one dose,., immediately relieves chol
ic, while one dose often peated is a sure cure for
cholera morbus, and a ventive of cholera. One
ose taken often; will ptt-« vent the recurrence of bil
iious attacks, while it re J lieves all painful feelings.
pnly one bottle is needed to throw out of the system the
effects of medicine after a long sickness. One bottle ta
ken for jaundice, removes all yellowishness or unnatural
color from tlie skin. One dose taken a short time before
eating gives vigor to the appetite and makes the food di
gest well. One dose, often repeated, cures Chronic Diar
rha-a in its worst forms, while Summer and bowel com
plaints yield almost to the first dose. One or two doses
cun s attacks caused by worms, while for worms in chil
dren, there is no surer, safer, or speedier remedy Id 'be
world, as it never fails. There is no exaggeration in
these statements; they are plain, sober facts, that we
can give evidence to prove, while all who use It are giv
ing their unanimous testimony In its favor. We take
pleasure in recommending this medicine as a preventive
for Fever an 1 Ague, Chill Fevers, and all fevers of a bll
iious type. It operates with certainty, and thousands
are willing to testify to its wonderful virtues. Among
the hundreds of Liver Remedies now offered to the public,
there nre none we can so fully recommend as Dr. Ban
fords Invigorator, so generally known now throughout
the Union. This preparation is truly a Life Invigorator,
producing the most happy results on all who use it. Al
most innumerable certificates have been given of tho
great virtue of this medicine by those of the highest
standing in society, and we know It to he the best prep*,
ration now before the public.— l/udton County Dem.
