WIT ASD HUMOR. What does “Good Friday mean,’’ asked one Halsted street urchin of another. “You’d better go home and read Robin son Crusoe,” was the withering reply. Mrs Popinjay—“Socrates, why don't you sav something to Angelena about sitting up so hte with young Poseyboy?" Mr. Popin jay_"Me! Why, I rather like it. It saves worrying about burglars.

CURE AND PREVENTIVE' (Patented April 27, 18SS. i To the Pt'BLic.—We wish to saj that this great and only remedy is not the result of any chances, neither is it a nostrum for speculation, but has been experimented with and thorough ly tested for two years prior to our purchasing it. The roan who first used it was Moses Frantz, who had charge of a herd ot 2500 hogs in 1884. 500 of these died with cholera. Mr. Frantz and Mr. Eaclius experimented in every conceivable manner to check the rasages of the disease, dissecting many dead hogs, and compounding many prescriptions, until they happily hit upon a remedy. Before Mr. r rantz could put his remedy before the people he died from blood poisoning, brought on by cutting up dead hogs which had died with cholera. He left all his trilling worldly effects to Mr. Eaclius, who had not the necessary means to put it before the public, and who was anxious that some of his old friends should have it. When Mr. Eaclius came here we had little faith in his cure, but, after testing it in many severe cases at home—notably, Mr. Rhodes and -Ir. Felteberger’s—we became convinced beyond doubt that it was all he claimed for it. Since then we have used it in many severe cases, and the result is before the public. Not .i»sin gle hog has died which we treated, and in no case have anv taken it when fed this remedy. It will cure Hog Cholera, it will prevent Hog Cholera. We have been at heavy expense placing a cure beforethe people,and now only ask that they appreciate our efforts by giving it a trial. It will pav vou to feed it if your hogs are well. It will kill every manner of louse, insect life in hog, trichinae not excepted. It will kill every nit and louse on the hog. It will cleanse your hog of scrutf or mange. It will increase the appetite five-fold. It is just what every body has been looking for. HOG CHOLERA! The disease gets its origin from a low order of insect life—on and in the animal. There is in the medicine an ingredient which extermi nates insects and nits, both internally and ex ternally. .... me muncys no uoi ucb piupi-iit, also provided for. Dissecting hundreds of hogs has shown that mortification always sets in before death, which is prevented by an antiseptic. Ninety-seven per cent, of hogs afflicted are constipated. To obviate this, the medicine contains a laxative and resolvent. In the other three per cent, the bowels ere found to be loose, which is overcome by the use of Tincture of Opium with the medicine, as per directions on the bottle. The medicine also contains a powerful tonic to build up the debilitated condition of the hog. PRICE, $1.00 PER QUART BOTTLE. Jones it Biteek—1Gentlemen—I have used tiie patented Hog Cholera preventive with successful effect. It is an excellent remedy and certainly a public blessing. A. J. RUTHERFORD.
