KALTIMORE LOCK J)R- JOHNSTON', HOSPITAL Physician of this celebrated Institution, has discovered the most certain, speedy, pleasant and effectnal remedT in the world for all DISEASES OF IMPRUDENCE. Weakness, of the Back or I.mbs, Strictures, Affections of Kidneys and Bladder, Involun tary Discharges, Impoteney, Genera! Debili ty, Ncrronsnes, Dyspepsy, Lanptor, Low Spirits, Confusion of Idftas, Palpitation of the Ileart, Timidity, Tremblings, Dimness of SIpht or Giddiness, Disease of the Head, Throat, Nose or Skin, Affections of Liver, Lnnps, Stomach or Bowels these terrible Disorders arifine from the Solitary Habits of Youth those secret" and solitary practices more fatal to their victims than the song ot syrens to the Mariners of Ulysses, blighting their most brilliant hopes or anticipations, rendering marriage, Ac.,impoF sible. IOUNG MEN especially, who have become the victims of Soli tary Vice, that dreadful and destrnctive habit which annually sweeps to an untimely jrrave thousands or youne men or the most exalted talents and brilliant intellect, who might other wise have entranced listening Senates with the thunders of eloquence or waked to eestaey the living lyre, may call with full confidence. MARRIAGE. Married Persons or Young Men contemplating marriage, aware of Physical "Weakness, (Loss of Proereative Power Ipoteiey), Nervous Ex ritability, Palpitation, Organic Weakness, Ner vous Debility, or any other Disqualification, speedily relieved. He who places himself under the care of Dr. J. may religiously confide in his honor as a gentle manand coutidenUy rely unon his skill as a Phy sician. ORGANIC WEAKNESS. Impoteney, Ixh?s or Power, immediately Cured and full Vigor Restored. Thi Distressing Affection which renders Life miserable rn marriage impossible is the penalty paid by the victims of imp-opcr indulgences. Tonne persons are too apt to commit excesses from not belnr aware of the dreadful consoqenccs that may ensue. Now, who that understands the subject will pretend to deny that the power of procreation is lost sooner by "those fallini; into improper habits than by the prudent t Besides bcinjt deprived the pleasures of healthy offspring, the most serious and dest ructive symptoms to bot h body end mind arise. The system becomes de ranged, the Physical and Mental Functions Weakened, Loss of Proereative Power, Nervous Irriubi.rty, Dyspepsia, Palpitation of the Hejtrt, Indigestion, Constitutional Debility, a Wasting of the Frame, Cough, Consumption. Decay and Dentb. A CUBE WARRANTED IN TWO DATS. Persons ruined in health by unlearned preten ders who keep them trifling month after month, taking poisonous and injurious compounds, should nlv immodiatelv. ' ' 11R. JOli.xblu.N, Member of the Royal College of Surgeons, Lon don, Graduated from one of the most eminent Coregeg in the United States, and the creater part of whose Ke has been spent in the hospitals of l-ondon, Pris, . Philadelphia and elsewhere, has e fleeted some cf the most astonishing euros that were ever kuon n ; many troubled with ring ing in the head and cars wlicn asleep, great nervousness, being alarmed at sudden soituds, bashfulness, with frequent blushing, attended sometimes with deranguinent of miud, wore cured immediately. TAKE PARTICULAR NOTICE. Dr. J. addresses all thofce who have injurrd themselves by improper indulgence and soiitarv habits, which rnin both body and mind, unfitting thctn lor either business, study, society or mar riage. TnrsE are 6omc of the sad and melancholy effects produced by early habits of youth, viz : Weakness of the Buck and Limbs, Pains in the Back and nead, Dimness of Sight, Loss of Mus cular Power, Palpitation of the Heart, Dyspcpsy, Nervous Irritability, Derangement of Digestive Functions, General Debility, Symptoms of Con eu motion, Ac ii est aixt The fearful effects on the mind are much to be dreaded Loss of Memory, Con fusion of Ideas, Depression of Spirits, Evil Forebodings, Aversion to Society, Self-Distrust, Love of Solitude, Timidity, fcc, are some of the evils produced. TBOrsaXDS of persons of all ages can now judge what is the cause of their declining health, losing their vigor, becoming, weak, pale, nervous and emaciated, having -singular appearance about the even, cough and symptoms of consump tion. TOUNG MEN Who have injured th mselves y certain prac tice indulged In when aloue, a habit frequently learned from evil companions, or at school, the etlects of which are nightly felt, even when asleep, and If not cured, renders marriage impos sible, and destroys both mind and body, should apply immediately. What a pity that a young man, the hope of his country, the darling 'of his parents, should be unatchci from all prospects and enjoyments of life, by the consequence of deviating from the path of nature and Indulging in a certain secret habit. Such persons mcnt before contemplating :iAKKIAGE. reflect that a sound mind and body are the most necessary requisites to promote connubial happi- j ties.. Indeed without these, the journey through life becomes a weary pilgrimage ; the prospect hourly darkens to the view ; the mlud becomes shadowed with despair and tilled with the melan choly reflection, that the happiueas of another become blighted with our own. A CERTAIN DISEASE. When the misguided and imprudent votary of pleasure finds that he has Imbibed the seeds of this painful disease, it too often happens that an ill-timed sense of shame, or dread of discovery, deters him from applying to those who, from education and respectability, can alone befriend him, delaying till the constitutional symptoms of this horrid disease make their appeaxauce, such as ulcerated sore throat, diseased nose, noctural pains in the bead and limbs, dimness of sight, deafness, nodes on the shin bones and arms, blotches on the head, face and extremities, pro gressing with frightful rapidity, till at last the palate of the mouth or the bones of the nose fall in, and the victim of this awfol disease becomes a horrid object of commiseration, till death puts a period to his dreadful suffering, by sending him to " that Undiscovered Country from whence no traveller returns." It is a melancholy fact that tnousand DIE victims to this terrible disease, through fulling into the hands of Ignorant or unskillful PRE TENDERS, who, by the nse of that deadly Poi son, Mercury, Ac, destroy the eonstKntiou, and incapbleof caring, keep the nuhappy sufferer month aflsr month taking their noxious or in jurious compounds, and instead of being restored to a renewal of Life Vigor and Happiness, iu des pair leave him with ruined Health to sigh over his galling disappointment. To such, therefore, Dr. Johnston pledges him self to preserve the most Inviolable Secrecy, and from hie extensive practice and observations In the great Hofpitals of Europe, and the first it: this country, vir : England, France, Philadelphia and elsewhere, is enabled to offer the moct cer tain, speedy and effectual remedy iu the world for all diseases of imprudence.

There is no time like thu old time, When you and I were young, When the buds of April blossomed, And the birds of spring-time sung. The garden's brightest glories By summer suns are nursed, Rut oil, the sweet, sweet violets, The flowers that open lirst ! There U no place like thy old place. Where you and I wers bom, Where we lifted first our eye-lids On the splendors of the morn, From the milk-white breast that wanned us, From the clinging arms that bore, Where the dear eyes glistened o'er us, That will look on us no more ! There U no friend like the old friend That has shared our morning day?, No greeting like his welcome. No homage like his praise ; Fan s is the scentless sunflower, With gaudy crown of gold ; But friendship is the breathing rose, With sweets in every fold. There is no love like the old love That wc conrtctl In cut r.:,io , Though our leaves are falling, falling, And we're fading side by side, There are blossoms all around us, With the colors of our dawn, And wc live in borrowed sunshine, When the light of day is gone. There are no times like the old times They Miall never be forgot ! Thrc is no place like the old place Keep green the dear old spot ! There are no friends like our oM friends May heaven prolong their lives ! There are no loves like our old loves God bless our I.ivini, wives ! THE VIGILANTES. I was yet many miles from Denver, and was in the worst defiles of the Rocky Mountains, when at noon I dismounted by the side of a little spring. I had just light ed my cigar, and was lying under a solita ry tree, when a mounted figure came over the ridge just behiud me. He was a tall man, wearing a felt or leathern hat. squeezed into no shape at all ; his black hair had probably not been cut for a twelvemonth; he was clad in buckskin from neck to ankle ; a buffalo robe covered his saddle, by the side of which hung an eighteen shot rejiealing rifle ; on each hip he carried a large revolver, aud a straight knife in a leathern sheath hung in his belt. At the sight of me he recoiled, and half drew one of his revolvers ; but seeing that I w.i3 alone and quite in his power, he came slowly on. keeping however, his eye on me all the while. I thought concilia tion best, so said 'Good morning.' 'Good evening,' he replied, as everybo dy out there would have replied, whatever the time of day. 'Will you have a drop of brandy ?' I asked, by a sudden impulse. He grimly smiled assent, and drank, pronouncing it good ; and then he said, 'Where's your hoss, stranger !' . I looked round, nod to my dismay saw that my steed had vanished had 'vamoos ed,' the stranger said ; then continued I thought I saw a Win the eullv over there, and when I ace you I thought it might be yourn. Here, come this way.' 1 scrambled over the rugged slope after him, but the horse was nowhere in sight. The stranger pointed to where he had seen it, and then, by signs wholly unintelligible to me, we tracked it for some half a mile, until we found it in a perfect maze of rocks and gullies. I thanked him very heartily, and made an oiler of reward ; but with the samo apathy which had marked his conver sation all through he declined it, and bid ding me 'good day,' rode slowly off, first having conducted me back to the track. I followed the road until night came on, when I found I had really lost my waj To make matters worse, I found that my horse was nearly exhausted, and could only limp painfully along the rough track. I was growing more out of heart with my situation than I ever was in my life, when on turning an angle l lounu mat i nau come upon a large tiact of level ground, and that not a hundred yards ahead, stood a shanty, from which a light feebly gleam ed. My jaded horse pricked up his ears and stumbled briskly along, and in another minute I was knock.ng at the rude door. It was thrown open by a gaunt-looking fellow in an old blue army cloak, and who held, although he partially concealed it, a pistol in his right hand. The interior, as I could see, was of an uninviting charac ter, scarcely an article of furniture and lighted by a lamp which, void of glass, flared on the window ledge. I told my case, and sullenly bidding me turj) my horse into the corral by the side of the house, and then enter, he moved away. When I had secured my steed in the enclosure, and the door of the shanty swung to behind me, I was almost sorry I had not chosen to sleep with the wolves in the mountain gullies. My host was silent and sullen, showing very plainly his inten tion not to talk ; presently, however, he said ; 'Guess you'll want supper. There's water in that puil ; there's whiskey in that bottle ; there's beef in that locker. You can't have nothin' else.' I said which was partly true, that I was too tired to eat. I certainly could not have eaten or drunk in his dirty hovel, or of such uninviting food, especially with so forbidding a ruffian for my companion. 'Then you'll want to go to sleep,' he said roughly, and kicked a bundle apart, dis closing a couple of buffalo robes, with two rude pillows. 'There you are. Go to bed then.' It was no use betraying any fear, and he was evidently giving up his bed to me, sol lay down, and in a short time was dozing, when I was aroused by hearing the tread of a horse, and then the door opened. I half rose from my bed, and, to my surprise, saw enter the man whom I had met at midday on the mountain. He recognized me, too, but said nothing distinct. 'Well, how is it, Joe ?' said the other man, with a very serious, if not anxious look. Bad,' said my friend, or 'Joe' "very bad. It's all correct.' 'And are they are the boys' began the other. 'Yes,' said Joe, filling up the pause; 'they mean coming. They may come to morrow perhaps to-night. We shall have to vamoose.' They conversed in undertones, as they sat on their rude stools by the low wood 187 - 1. fire, chewing or smoking, and occasionally drinking from a whisky bottle ; their dis course seemed very grave and disquieting and from a word or two I caught, and from their glances, I fancied they were often re ferring to me. At last, in spite of myself, I fell asleep, and tired as I was, might have slumbered till morning, but a tremen dous crash aw ke me, and, rising, I saw that the door had leen burst open, and that the shanty was filling with strangers all armed, while Joe and his comrade had drawn suddenly to my side of the room On the instaut half a dozen men surround ed them and took their firearms. 'Hollo !' exclaimed one of the new cod ers, as he caught sight of me, 'who is this Are there three in the gan ?' All eyes being upon me, although I did not quite understand the situation, I ex plained briefly who I was ; and the account seemed satisfactory. 'Xow, Joe Blakey, and you, Phil Maril. I reckon you know why we have conie ' saiu the man who seemed spokesman. Guess we do,' said Joe, in his usual an- athetic tone- 'You expected a visit,' corf'ni me man. 'We !tc neard all your bragging against the Vigilantes ' 'Never said so,' interrupted Joe. I was amazed at these words. Here was I in the presence of the promptest, most terrible tribunal of modern times. I soon understood the purport of the vi sit, as addressed to my tost. 'You'e been a terror to this here neighborhood,' continued the spokesman ; you've stole horses and cattle for more than two yearn past, and tried to put it all on the Indians You have murdered rren, and this here traveler would never have seen daylight again if we hadn't come in. You got the Jew from Santa Fe iato your shanty, and robbed and killed him.' 'No, captain,' barst out Joe; 'I bar out of several and rode away, and I never that ; I don't deny the hosses, nor the cat- saw or heard of him again unless Joe Ba tlc ; and I may hev killed a man or two ;' ker, from Colorado, who was shot at a sa so may Phil ; but I never touched the Jew, ' loon iu Xavadu, was my friend, as some of nor killed a man in my own shanty ; and my mining acquaintances declared to be this here traveler should have gone his t the case, way a safe man.' Then turning to me, he said : 'You don't believe I inean't killing of you, stranger ?' 'I do not V I said very emphatically, for I meant it. 'Well, there's enough agin you without that,' saiu the spokesman ; 'though we i know you ain't so bad as Phil. You've j ! been warned to go time after time.' 1 'Not regular warned, captain,' argued Joe ; 'and now we are going.' '.No, you ain't, 3-ou-bet,' said the cap tain, with a meaning smile, which ran re sponsively through his band ; 'no, you ain't. Your time has come ; but you shall have a fair trial from the Vigilantes here assembled, and what their judgment is you must abide by.' In an instant a sort of formality was given to the assembly, theca: tain and an other being the centre of a semi-circle, while opposite to them were the two pri soners, guarded by four men. I suppose there must have been some seventeen or eighteen of the Vigilantes altogether. With a rapidity that almost stunned me the trial rbegan and concluded: The prisone.s offer ed no particular defeusc, they seemed con scious of its inutility, and the evidence asrainst them was chiefly accusation it sufficed. When the captain asked the verdict, there was a unanimous reply of 'guilty ;' and he addressed the culprits thus : 'Say Joe Blakey and Phil Maril, you hev heard the evidence in this honora ble committee of Vigilantes, and the ver dict of guilty. We therefore intend to string you up, and we mean to clear the country of all thieves right away. You have ten minutes allowed you to leave any message you wish.' The apathy of the two men was extraor dinary ; Phil only scowled al the speaker, while Joe absolutely turned to his nearest guard and asked him for a 'chew ;' and the guard, pulling a cake of tobacco from his breast, handed it to Joe, who broke a piece off and began masticating it with apparent relish. Just then I caught his eye, and I thought it was fixed on me with such a hopeless yet appealing look that I could hesitate no longer. With an energy which surprised myself I broke out into an ap peal for the lives of the condemned, ex plaining how I had been received by them and given the best they had, and how Joe had helped me to find my horse in the day. 'I will be security,' I coucluded, 'that they leave the neighborhood. I bear letters from good houses in New York to several persons in this vicinity, some of whom may lie known to you, and which will prove I can bear out my offer.' I drew my letters from my pocket, and read the addresses : 'Capt. Hiram Danks, Major Julius Blum per, Sheriff Gollopy, Col. Vanwoort, Capt. Hum pus ' 'That's mo,' said a rough-lookins; man. 'Give it here.' He wasn't much after my idea of a cap tain, but, as it could do no harm, I gave him the letter. He read it and handed it to the captain, a leader of the band, who read it also. 'Yes, that:s all sqnar nough,' said the latter ; 'but the Vigilantes out here don't vally New Yorkers, and don't work ac cording to New York laws.' 'Nor they don't want no New York no ney,' said a voice from the rear. An assenting murmurendorsed thisseiti raent, and I felt things were looking vry black for my hosts. They were evidertly of the same opinion, for Joe smiled sally and said : 'It ain't of no use. sqiure, were just as much obliged, though. I wouIuVt say no more, or you'll maybe get into tru ble yourself. If things is ready, I'm ra dy,' he continued, turning to the leadr. 'Well, we shan't keep you a-waitag long, Joe Blakey,' responded the latter ;'I hear the young men a-coming back ; thy have been choosing a tree.' With horror I exclaimed : 'I ner dreamt of such cold-blooded work as thi I Look here, captain; the only reason I don't offer money is because I believl should do more harm than good by it ; ht if you hang these men you will send ie away with the feeling that I have thir blood on my head, for they expected yar visit, and I believe that but for my pe sence they would have made their escae to-night. If you won't listen to anythig else you might think of that' I was pleased to see that my words mde some impression, for instead of answerig me in his calm, cruel style, the captsn turned to his gang, and a low, but earnet discussion took place. At least he turn d I round, and in a very stern voice, qnite df- j ( New Series, Vol. 6, So. 23. t Old Series, Vol. 35, So. 22. fereit to that in which he had previously spolen, said: 'Hear me, stranger I The Vifilantes are very sorry for your position, ami respect your fuelin's, but this is their decsion, and I warn you that if you ques tiot it by a single word, you will ruin the m.m you most seek to help.

Sisrtllaitccns. The I'owrr or Trnth. A little girl, nine years of age, was ofler d as a witness against a prisoner who was on trial for felony committed in her father's bouse. 'Now, Emily,' said the counsel for the prisoner, upon her being offered as a wit ness, 'I desire to know if you understand the nature of an oath ?' 'I don't know what you mean,' was the simple answer. 'There, your honor,' said the counsel, addressing the court, 'is anything further necessary to demonstrate the validity of my objection ? This witness should be re jected. She does not comprehend the na ture of an oath.' 'Let us see,' said the judge. 'Come here my daughter.' Assured by the kind tone and manner of the judge, the child stepped toward him, and looked confidently up in his face with calm, clear eye, and hi a manner so art less aud frank that it went straight to the heart. t& you tvr take an oath ?' inquired the judge. The little girl stepped hack with a look of horror, and Uie red blood mantled in a blush all over her face as she answered : 'No, sir.' She thought he intended to inquire if she had ever blasphemed. "I do not mean that,' said the judge, who saw her mistake. 'I mean were you ever a witness before ?' 'No, sir ; I never was in court before,' was the answer. He had the Bible open. 'Do you know that book, my daughter ?' She looked at it, and answered : 'Yes, sir, it is the Bible.' "Do you ever read it ?' he asked. 'Yes, sir, every evening.' 'Can you tell me what the Bible is?' queried the judge. 'It is the word of the great God,' she an swered. 'Well, place your hand on this Bible, and listen to what I say ;' and he repeated slowly and solemnly the oath usually ad ministered to witnesses. Now,' said the judge, 'you have sworn as witness. "Will you tell me what will be fa 1 you if you do not tell the truth ?' 'I shall be shut up in State's prison,' an swered the child. Anything else ?: asked the judge. 'I shall uever go to heaven,' she replied. '!Iow do you know this ?' asked the judje. Tje child took the Bible, and turning rapilly to the chapter containing the com manlments, pointed to the injunction, 'That shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.' 'I learned that before I couM read.' 'Has any one talked to you about being a winess in court here against this man ?' iuqured the judge. 'Yes. sir.' she replied. 'My rnhr heard they wanted me for a witness, and last eight she called me to tell her the Ten Commandments)aud then we kneeled down together and she prayed that 1 might un derstand how wicked it was to bear false witness against my neighbor, and that God would help me, a little child, to tell the truth as it was before Him. And when I came up here with father, she kissed me and told me to remember the Ninth Com mandment, and that Gou would hear every word that I said. I)o you believe this !' asked the judge, while a tear glistened in his eye and his lip quivered with emotion. Yes, sir,' said the child, with a voice and a manner that showed her conviction of its truth was perfect. 'God bless you, my child,' said the judge, 'you have a good mother. This witness ia competent,' he continued. 'Were I on trial for my life, and innocent of the charge against me, I would pray God for such wit nesses as this. Let her be examined.' She told the story with simplicity of a child, as she was, but there was a direct ness about it which carnedconviction or its truth to every heart. She was rigidly cross-examined. The counsel plied her with infinite and ingenious questioning, but she varied in nothing. The trnth as spoken by the little child was sublime. Falsehood and perjury had preceded her testimony. The prisoner had entrenched himself in lies, till he deemed himself im- ptrgnable. Witnesses had falsified facts Rates of Advertising.

TnE Bcildek of First Teeorapii. A few days ago a telegraphic dispatch from Maine announced the disease in that State of Mr, G. F. Smith, who constructed for Professor Morse, the forty miles of magnetic telegraph from Washington city to Baltimore, which constituted the origi nal of the vast system of teleprapbs now extended throughout the world. That line was completed for use in the last week in May 1844, the first news despatch bavin" been sent over the wire on the 29th of May The quite recent death of the constructor 9LLh.a.Iiue. jgtwrlUrj-Sed Jtl.a mini! isting magnetic telegraph, and in doing so we are better able to appreciate the two hundred thousand miles of wire which form the immense net work over the United States to-day. Of these two hundred thou sand miles of American wires, which would encircle the globe more than eight times, about one hundred and seventy thousand belong to one company. In Jnne, 1844, there were two operators at work ; in June, 1S73, there were nine thousand nine hun- dre and thirty persons employed by one American company, and about twelve thousand by all the American companies. In this exhibit of the growth of thirty years, we limit the figures to the statistics of our own country, leaving the world out of view altogether. Sleep obtained two hours before mid night, when the negative forces are in ope ration, is the rest which most recuperates the system, giving brightness to the eye and a glow to the cheek. The difference between the appearance of a person who habitually retires at ten o'clock and that of one who is up till twelve is quite remarka ble. The tone of the system, so evident in thecomplexion, the clearness and sparkle of the eye, and the softness of the lines of the features are, in a person of health, kept at "concert pitch" by taking regular rest two hours before twelve o'clock, and there by obtaining the "beauty sleep" of the night. There is a heaviness of the eye, a sallowuess of the skin, and absence of that glow in the face which renders it fresh in expression and round in appearance, that readily distinguishes the person who keeps late hours. A newspaper man, interviewing the late ' General Ilillyer just before bis death, asked him what he thought of General Grant. "I never thought much of him," said flill- ycr, "until at the battle of Fort Donelson, when he came up late, after, Lew Wallace had been demoralized, and he asked me if there were any prisoners. Taking a pri soner, and exlimining'hTs haversack, and " finding several days' rations there, he said. 'Just as I thought. They are endeavoring to escape.' ne then ordered the attack at the part of the fort where the rebels were' weakest, and they gave up after being worsted and summoned before assault. The trick of looking at the rations struck me as a cute one." Dr. Livingstone is said to have expressed the utmost contempt for lions. "Yon talk about the majesty of the lion," said he, chatting one day at a party in London with Sir Edwin Lanseer, "but too do not know the beast. There is no more majesty about him in the forest than there is about that poodle. It is all poetry. Lions are arrant cowards cowardly sneaking beasts. You can hardly tell a lion from a donkey when you come upon him in the forest ; and if you come upon a lion suddenly, his first impulse is to tuck his tail between his legs and bolt. He will spring upon you if he comes upon you unawares and can have time to crouch, but if a man h is the conr- . age to look a lion in the faee, you need not even cock your ride." Effect of Shoes ox Health. Wood en shoes are highly recommended by tome of the scientific societies, and in some in stance? by the Governments of Europe, it having been ascertained that not a few diseases, result in impaired constitutions and even loss of life, having resulted from the practice of wearing leather shoes in wet weather. An experienced workman from France was a short time since called to Ger many to superintend the manufacture of wooden shoes on anextensivescalein the lat ter country. These are represented as being ' light and easy to wear, and are provided with a small cushion within the upper side to obviate any pressure on that part of the foot ; they are also said to be of neat and pleasing appearance, blacked or varnished, are made large enough to accommodate comfortable stockings, and are furnished witli leather straps. A Mississippi Biude. A Mississippian married a widow for her money, and on " the wedding night possessed himself of the treasure and struck out. Unluckily for him, his wife's daughter, a strapping girl of twenty, observed the theft and departure. (Jiving chase she overtook her papa, threw him down, lied him to a tree, and corrected him with a hickory stick. Presently the bride appeared and joined her daughter in the castigation. The piteous cries of the unhappy groom soon reached the ears of the police, who hurried to the spot. Tied to the roots of the tree was the husband of only a few hours' creation ; the step daughter, with her night clothes torn into threads, stick in hand, and rapidly repeat ing the blows, the bride was punching him in the ribs with her fist, calling him thief, robber, Kuklux, and demanding her mo ney. The case was compromised by the return of the money, but the honeymoon was over. Louaviue uounerJouTnai. Scsik Liberty, of La Crosse, has thir- . teen lovers, and every one of them exclaims.
