IMPORTANT LETTER
From a Distinguished Physician.
N O single <inww hns entailed wore suffering or has
tened the breaking up of the constitution than
Catan h. The tense of Suiell, of tuste. of sight, of hear
tng.the human voice,the mind, one ot more andaomc
titnes all ' ictd to Itsdestrucllvoiallacncc. The poison it
distributes throughout the system stacks every vital
force, nnd breaks up the most robust of constitutions.
Ignored because but little understood by most physi
cians. impotently assailed l v quacks and charlatans,
those F iltering from It have lltti> hope to be relieved
of It this side of the grave. It Is t me. then, that tho
pop ilar treatmeut« f tills terrible disease by remedies
w.t hi llie reach cfhllpassedl to hands nt once com
pelent and trustworthy. The n <v and hitherto untried
id lopted by Dr. Sanford In ttton of
h's I; .1.1. >i, l i rk lias won my hearty approval. I be
lieve It likely to succeed uhen nil the usual remedies
fall, because it strikes at the root of the disease, viz.,
the firtiUlU l blood. while it heals the ulcerated mem
brane by direct application to the nasal passages. Its
m tlon li based on certain fixed rules, aud unless tho
vit al forces are too far exhausted, must, in the great
majority of cases, effect a cure.
GEO. BEARD. M. D.
Vobscott Block, So. riUMixaneM, CKt. 1,1B71.
SANFORD’S RADICAL CURE
MAY safely claim to bo one ofthc fewpopular rerne
. dies receiving the approval ofmcdlcal gentlemen,
who. In private, uol only freely i commend It but use
It In their families In preference to any of the prepara
tions usually prescribed by physicians.
" You are aware ."said auistiagulsh deity physician.
" that my obligations to the Mass. Medical Society are
- eh tb t I cannot publicly rccommca '.or preserlbethe
’ . .1 Cure : but since I received so much t llcf Bom
the use of It myself, after a thorough trial ofthe usual
•:-edic«, 1 h ive prr. del; advised n iso, and p-eaume
a hundred of
my i illcuti for it."
U.^iVERSAL SATISFACTION.
rr F.NTLFMENd— Wc have sold P.vxror.D’s Rvtiical
i tunc for nearly one year, and can say candidly
that we never sold a similar preparation that gave such
universal sntl faction. Wc have to learn the first com
plaint y* t.
Wc ure not In the habit o. recommending patent
medicines, but your preparation meets the wants of
thousand*, and we think those ntilictcd should be con
vinced of Its great merit so that their uitlering will bo
r >rcd. We h»r< bora In the drug >uslnea* for the

DT EJIl’-T «. 0 t K ~Y.
Little tiny led his sheep d urn tn pasture,
And hi*cow* by the side of the brook ;
But his cows nerer drank »n r water,
And bis sheep never need a crook.
For th-1 pasture wa- as gay t* a garden,
And it glowed with a'fi >werr red:
But the meadows had never a grit s blade,
And the brooklet- -it slept in its bed ;
And it lav without spaikle’nr murmur,
Nor reflected the blue of the skies.
But the music was made bv the shepherd,
And the sparkle was all in his eyes.
Oh, he sang like a bird in the summer !
And. if sometimes yon fancied a bleat.
That, too, was th • v lice ot the shepherd,
And not of the lambs^at his feet.
And the glossy brown cows were sc gentle
, That they moved at the touch of his hand
O’er the wonderful rosy-red meadow.
And they stood at his word of command.
So he led all his sheep to the pa-lure.
And his cows, by the side of the brook ;
Though it rained, yet tho rain never patter’d
O’er the bcauti ul way that they took.
And it wasn't in Fairy-land either.
But a l ouse in a commonplace town.
Where Hoy as he looked fr-ori the window
Saw the silvery jlrops trickle down.
For his pasture was only a table,
With its cover so ll nvery f t'ir,
I And his brooklet was just a green ribbon
That his sister had lost from her hair.
And hi*cows they were glossy h >r* chestnuts,
That h td grown on his grandfather’s tree ;
And his sheep they were *m wy-uhite pebbles
lie had brought from the shore by the sea.
And at length, when ihe'shrpherd was weary.
And had taken hi- milk and his biead,
And h;s mother had ki led f iin and locked,
him,
And had bid him “good night” in his bed,
Then ther" enter- d his big brother Walter,
While the shepherd was soundly asleep,
And he cut op the cows into basket1?.
And to jack stone* turned all of tho sheep.

out strolling up and down the railr : i trad;,
enjoying the calm and peaceful sunset. They
were talking of the future, and wore m happy
as happy could be. Lillian wore her wine
colored silk, and her proud young h ver had
told her a hundred times that r. made her lm k

interrupted by the appalling s< reech of a steam
whistle just around the curve. The limited
