THE LYON COUNTY TIMES
Condensed Romance.—About a
year ago, in Bennington, Vermont,
lived James Ward, a Union soldier,
who had lost an arm in the first
battle of the Wilderness. Lovely
daughter, Josie—“ innocent, guile
less and belle of the town.” Oscar
Penn, a book agent, came along—
young, educated, good - looking,
“cheeky.” Corraled Josie's affec
tions. Old Ward prejudiced against
him. Elopement and marriage.
Old man in tears. Finds out that
Penn is a fraud of the first water,
who had served a term in Sing Sing;
real name, Bill Benson; lay, con
fidence operator. Grief and con
sternation of old man. In February,
1874, “ Penn” heard from in Hollis
ter. Ward started across the con
tinent. Found Josie near Salinas
City, dreRsed in men’s clothes, and
trying to officiate as a sheep-herder,
with poor success. Grand tableau!
•• He sprang forward with a wild
cry and clasped her in his arms.”
Josie had seen rough times; “Penn”
had been in the habit of walloping
her; hollow cheeks and dark rims
about the eyes. Had been fanned
by her husband with a boot-jack
and other handy articles. He had
recently “ sloped” to parts unknown.
Blast him! Old W’ard and Josie hug
and start back to Bennington. Hap
py denouement. Red light and
curtain.
Experimkntino to Some Pur
pose.--A Detroit architect desired
some fire-proof brick the other day
for the floor of a new barn, hut
when he learned the cost per thous
and he determined to experiment a
little with somo common brick. Ho
procured a few hundred, had them
delivered, when they were plaeed
in a large vat, such as the pavers
use in which to heat their tar, and
allowed to absorb the hot tar tor
four hours. In that Icnght of time
the bricks were as black as the tar
itself, and soaked full of it, and when
allowed to cool off it was found that
their solidity had been greatly in
creased. A reporter of the Free
Press struck one of the bricks eight
or ten times before he could even
break a piece off, and to strike one
with a hammer is like striking a
rock. Subjected to the same tests as
the regular fire-proof brick, the tar
soaked brick came out finely. To
determine their fire-proof qualities,
a number of the brick were passed
into the blazing furnace, and after a
severe test thej' came out without a
flaw or a crack; in fact, they were
rendered stronger and tougher for
the baking, and it was almost im
possible to break one.
Hood for Beecher. — Henry
Ward Beecher was married on Sat
urday. His Brooklyn congregation
had timely information of this cir
cumstance, and knowing he would
preach the next morning at his
church, desirous at the same time of
seeing the bride, they assembled in
such crowds that the church was full
before the bell was done tolling. As
was expected the bride made her
appearance, and the folks indulged
themselves in their usual observa
tions until Beecher mounted the
pulpit. Then every eye was upon
him, and every ear ready to catcli
the words of the text, which, to
their astonishment, were the follow
ing; “ We toiled all night and have
taken nothing!” The discourse
turned out, as usual, very instruct
ive, and all went home highly de
lighted, except poor Mrs. Beecher,
who blushed down to her finger
ends every step of the way.—La
Crosse Democrat.
Sublime. — I stood upon the
ocean's shore, and with a fragile reed
I wrote upon the sands—Agnes, I
love thee! The mad waves rolled
by, and blotted out the fair impres.
slons. Frail reed; cruel waves;
treacherous sands;* I'll trust thee no
more! bat with a giant hand I'll
pluck from Norway’s frozen shore
her tallest pine, and dip its top into
the crater of Vesuvius; then on the
high and burnished heavens I’ll
write—Agnes, I love thee! And I'd
like to see any dog-goned wave wash
that out!
Old Juvenal recorded:
” Yes, la the corners of the common ways
We meet the saint who fornicates and prays "
At a later date Burns sang:
*' King David of poetic brief
Wrought 'mong the lessee much mischief.
And yet he's rank’d among the chief
O' tang syne saints ’*
And aow comes Beecher, and with
childlike innocence and simplicity
calls it “ nest-hiding:”
Tilton had a little sheep,
A harmless, snow-white creature.
Which always used to prsy a heap
And then go off with Beecher.
One man, at least, comes out of
the Beeeher-Tilton scandal with an
unsullied reputation. His name is
Horace Greeley. When Tilton urged
him to eall at his house during his
absence, Mr. Greeley declined. He
■aid he did not think it a good habit
to visit a wife while her husband
was away. These were creditable
words.

Whose Successful Treatment of certain l*hysical Disabilities and func

Without entering into biographic detail*, it is sufl.oient to simply promulgate the fact that
Dii SPINNEY'S earliest reputation may be traded back to his inauguration and conduct
of the.
Montreal, Canada East, Medical Institute;
The regime of the English Pharmaceutical College is gauged by an elevated standard. An
extended experience and an assiduous study of the varied phases of
guarantee assurances of success in the eradication of the multiform CHRONIC AFFECTIONS

Nervous Debility,
Exhausted Vitality,
Youthful Excesses.

Lung andCeneralChronicAffections,
Through the milium of an effective agency f.»r the detection of the faintest resemblances of
Internal Bronchial Troubles. Rheumatism. Neuralgia. Scrofulous Developments, Paralytic
Proclivities, ordinary or aggravated. Catarrhs, Hepatic Diseases. Dravelous DejHisito, Hemor
rhoids, etc., the Doctor ascertains their true condition, and treatB with success.
DR. .SPINNEY professes and assumes not only to give temporary relief, bnt by probing,
with the auxiliary help of a thorough and searching diagnosis, the very gem of the malady
ultimately to annihilate the seed, and thus prevent a future out-crooping.
To the Ladies,
DR. SPINNEY, while naturally impressed with the delicacy of the subject, feels no delicacy
in assuring that, in conjunction with a competent knowledge of their sufferings, such as
Nervousness, Headache, pain in the Back. Neuralgia. Spinal Weakness. Loss of Appetite.
Lassitude, Prolapsus Uteri. Retroversions or Displacement of the Womb, Vaginal Irregu
larities, Leuchorrea. Dyspepsia. Indigestion. Constipation, and the many petty irritating dis
tractions that almost invariably Lave their origin the uterine region, he can afford them im
mediate relisf.
Remember, that Procrastination is the Thief of Time!
So do not longer delay
in seeking the proper remedy
for your complaints. Why eke out a
miserable existence, suffering all the torture
of a lingering death. wbu» a few weeks’ treatment will
restore you to vigorous health ? While there is life there is
hope, yet with proper treatment you may recover the full vigor of
health, though your affliction may lie severe. Those suffering from Rheuma
tism. Neuralgia. Scrofula. Salt Rheum. Paralysis, Fits. Spinal Disease. St. ^itms
Dance Liver Complaint. Asthma, Catarrh. Heart Disease, (travel, etc., and are tired of
taking mineral drugs, will do well to come and try the Doctor's new method of
cure, as it will, if projierly applied, relieve them of their sufferings and
restore them to health. The Doctor uses no mineral preparation;
his treatment consist wholly in the use of vegetable
remedies. Many are they who have implanted in
their system, by improper us© of calomel,
seeds which will produce an an
nual crop of disease. To all
which we would say
Come and be Healed!
It matters not what your trouble may lie. come and lot the Doctor examine»y»ur caae. If il is
Curable he will tell ,<>u so—if not, he u-ill tell you that; for be will not undertake a caae unless
he la confident of effecting a cure. It will coat you nothing for consultation, so please call
and satisfy yourselves whether the Doctor understands yours case. Or. S. cures humors and

Dr Spinney will guarantee to forflfct five hundred dollars
for every case of seminal weakness, nr private disease of any
kind or character, which he undertakes and fails to cure. He
would, therefore, say to the unfortunate sufferer who may read this no
tice. that you are treading upon dangerous ground when you longer delay
in seeking the proper remedy for your complaint. You may be in the first
stage—remember you are approaching the last. If you are bordering on the last,
and are suffering some or all of its ill effects, remember that if you obstinately persist
in procrastination, the time must come when the skilful physician can render you no assis
tance; when the doors of hope will be closed against you; when no angel of mercy
• can bring you relief. In no case has the Doctor failed of success.
Then let no despair work itself upon your imagination,
but avail yourself of the beneficial results of his
treatment before your case is beyond
the reach of medical skill, or be
