hole in one of the big windows of the shoe

gave chase to the thief, but did not succeed
in overtaking him Next morniug Mr. S.
went before Esquire WAlker and charged

very loth to believe that he was the thief.—

since to prove conclusively that John's repu
tation for honesty is not yet destroyed.

Thb Premium Engraving, issned by ''Peter
son's Magazine" for 1877 is of rare vaine, and
ought to be in every household in the land.
It is not one of the cheap, colored lithographs,
with which the country is flooded, but a first
class line and stipple engraving, exeented in
the highest style of art. The artists are 111
k Brothers, and they have engraved it,
(size, 27 inches by 20), expressly for '"Peter
son's Magazine," in their most brilliant man
ner. It is such a plate as would sell, at retail,
for five dollars. The picture represents that
proudest event in our national history, the
"Surrender of Cornwallis." It is full of au
thentic portraits—Washington, Rocbambeau,
Lincoln, Knox, O'Hara, Lauzun, etc., etc.—
and on that account is invaluable. It is really
of the greatest of historical pictures. The
artist is Dumaresq, and it took a prize at the
Paris Salon of 1875. Anv person may get
this valuable historical picture, gratis, by
raising a club for "Peterson" for 1877, or by
remitting $2.50 for it and for the magazine,
the magazine alone being two dollars. This
is a rare chance. Specimens of the magazine
sent gratis to those wishing to get up clubs.

A TIME-HONORED SPECIFIC.—Tbe long
and suece«sful career of Dr. Wishart's Pine
Tree Tar Cordial as contrasted with the
speedy collapse of nostrums devoid of efficacy
which have from time to time been puffed into
brief notoriety during the twenty odd years
that this celebrated medecine has been sold,
affords a proof that the American public con
tinuel to repose its confidence in deserving
articles only. The Pine Tree Tar Cordial bas
long been recognized ns the leading specific
for Consumption, Brouchitis, Coughs, Colds,
Asthma, Diptheria and all other diseases of
tbe breathing organs. It is, moreover, a cer
tain, speedy, and safe botanic remedy for
Dyspepsia, Liver Disorders, Scrofulus Affec
tions, Urinary Troubles, Gravel, Dropsy, De
bility, Constipation, and Female Complaints.
Constantly accumulating evidence of
impeachable character establishes the fact
that it not only entirely eradicates the dis
to which it is adopted, but also that its
action is remarkably prompt and thorough.
The crueial test of experience has demonstrat
ed its reliability in erery particular Sold by
all drnggists. Principal depot, No. 916 Fil
bert Street, Philadelphia.

bury, N. J., and not one has reported a single
failure, but every letter speaks of its astonish
ing success in curing severe Coughs, Colds
settled on the Breast, Consumption, or any
disease of the Throat and Lungs. We advise
any person that has any predisposition to
weak Lungs, to go to their ruggists, Dr.
Chamberlaine, Middletown, or H. P. Baker,
