HORSE STEALING ON THE J* MILTOW*, D. T., May 20, 1878 EdU»r$ Prttt ct Patotaian In your iMue of May 16th, I notice that you give an account of the loa (by theft) of six head of horses belonging to Mr. Bloom. The statement is correct only Mr. Bloom is a resident of Bockport, instead of Firesteel, as stated. We hope the scoundrels who go about the country robbing poor homestead ers will soon receive their just deserts by law or otherwise. There are already indict ments against four parties on the upper Jim for horse stealing and should be pushed through to the full extent of the law. We are of the opinion it would put a quietus oa the stealing business in these parts for some time to come. B. Groceries—A complete assortment, and at prices beyond competition. R. A. KnxcaTTM.

No preparation has ever performed such marvellous cures, or maintained so wide a reputation as AYER'S CHERRY PxcTOBAti, which is recognized as the world's remedy for all diseases oftthe throat and lungs. Its long continued series of wonderful cures in all climates has made it universally known as a safe and relia ble agont to employ. Against ordinary colds, which are the fore runnors of more serious disorder,it acts speedily and surely always relieving suffering, and often sav ing life. The protection it affords, by its timely use in the throat and lung disor ders of children, makes it an invaluable remedy to be kept always on hand in every home. No person can afford to be without it, and those who have once used it never will. From their knowledge of its composition and effects, Physicans use the CHERRY PECTORAL extensively in their practice, aad Clergymen recommend it. It is sbsolutely certain in its reme dial effects, aud will always cure where cures are possible. FOR SALE BY ALL DEALERS. ARMY SUPPLIES.
