ComciOKNCE.—Job n and George Mitch ell, brothers, living east of town and about five miles apart, came to town hur riedly last Thursday about the same hour and upon the same business. The brothers met next morning, and in one breath made similar statements very much as follows: ‘‘We’ve got a girl at our house,” and “We’ve got a gii. at our house,” which was true, and these twin cousins came into this world of trouble the same day and almut the same hour. A put up job, evidently. ('ban Perdue sends us a copy of the newsy Courier , of Beloit, Kansas, which blooms all over with big Load-lines rejoic ing over a late rain in that section. We are 'lad to hear that the showers of re freshing rain have visited that fast town, and now if a fall of the “Hcfrchbing show ers of grace divine” that we read of would only visit Chan and the Courier editor they would shout glory, hallelujah with a vim. But in this world one can hardly expect so great a series of blessings ut once, and the boys will have to take it in slices. Prayed koii Him.—lt will be rcinctn b red that Tim <). Walker, of tin* Bloom field Democrat, accidentally discharged a load of duck shot into a companion's Ixxly last fall while out hunting. It was a frightful wound, and the wounded man, thinking that he would die before medi cal assistance could arrive, asked Tim to pray for him, and although it was entirely new business for him, Tim struck an atti- tude and prayed a pray that hut for the injunction which reads, “The prayers of the wicked availeth naught,” would no doubt have been an effective effort. When it was ascertained that the wounded man would recover, Tim swore him to secrecy, hut it somehow leaked out. Ilt-ury W. McCall of Farmington, 1111- noiM, brother of our F. W., writing us on private business bay*: “We have fair prospect both for fruit and crop* generally. Weather has been favorable; a few heavy rains. I cannot well do without the llkjuld as it keeps me posted as to the old settlers, but how many arc passing away ; soon an entire new generation will occupy their place. A few are still left as standing monument*. I enjoy the history of the Herald boys, (Devils) many I remember of delivering the new year’s address, which gave us the history of the past year, and now to see how many of those boys have made themselves useful and renowned, al though the most of them were poor. What an encouragement for those who follow them. Leighton, Lee & Leighton Bros. Editors and Proprietors. THURSDAY, JUNE 10, 1880. The closing of each year of this pros perous and justly popular institution has become a matter of more than local im portance. Its annual return not only causes our city to put on something of gala-day airs, but likewise attracts visit ors from various parts of this and other states. I “Commencement week" was opened on I Sunday last by the Baccalaureate sermon, Iby Pres. Carpenter. The effort is said to | have been one of the President’s most | happy and practical addresses, though I the delivery was somewhat lessened in I effectiveness by a severe cold, which affected the speaker’s voice. The theme was “Life’s Motives,” predicated upon the first clauso of Ps. 37 : 3. After the sermon Messrs. C. E. Foote and J. G. Thompson, of the Senior class in the Bible Department, were solemnly j ordained to the work of the ministry, the officers of the church officiating. | J Commencement exhibitions were open lod by the Society, on Monday ! evening, June 7. This is a society formed | within the last two years, and composed | of juniors, seniors, and post graduates. I By Bp.m. a goodly number had assm- I bled in college hall. The chapel was I neatly arranged iu keeping with com- I menccmcnt times. Leaves and garlands I were twined about chaudcliers andj looped I up about the walls, which were tastefully I decorated with evergreens and paintings. I Among the paintings no one failed to no- I tice a large one by Mrs. W. P. Macy. It | is a life-sizo painting of her little boy and | girl. Maime is standing on a rustic bench, I under a cherry tree, with her apron full of j I cherries, and is in the act of dropping one down to her little brotiier, Otis, who is bending eagerly forward to receive it. This painting speaks for itself and needs no encomium. On either side of this | hangs a painting, the work of Mrs. Ma-1 cy’s pupils. The one on the left a wild landscape scene, by Miss Ervillo Harris;! the one on the right, by Miss Sallic Mullin, an oriental scene. Both do honor to pu pils and teacher alike. A beautiful fountain, the work of G. W. Haggard, beautitiee the stage. Prof. Macy opened the exercises with prayer, after a beautiful piece of music. We were treated with music again. Mr. C. E. Barnes (79), delivered the salu- I tatory. Ilis speech was full amt bristling I over with points. He seemed to strike right and left regardless of whose hobby or pet politician he assailed, ilis deliv ery was not forcible enough, but the spi ciness or his production made up for it in part. lie discussed Chinese immigration in favor of it, and assailed Blaine’s rec ord in this matter; slated that the colored rrce had never received honors at the North; that Senator Bruce would step down from political life now that he had made Kansas his home. There is a race prejudice among us, conceal it as we may, Miss Lizzie Lyon (77), of Minburn, talk- ed upon “Our Country’s Greatest Danger.’’ She was not fully prepared. Hesitation in delivery detracted somewhat from oth erwise a good forcible speech. She en tered into the problem of foreign immi- gration in her usual vigorous and logical manner; discussed the danger ftom the foreign element in general, as only the lowest grades of society, as a rule, come to our country, and in a few years become full Hedged, free America and voters. Especially is there danger from the Chinese. Ignorance leads to poverty and crime, as statistics piove. The Re public’s greatest danger is ignorance. Miss Alice Merrill’s declamation (Christ- mas Times) was somewhat out of the ordinary style. She entered into the spirit of her production and her delivery was in a style in keeping with it. It was humor ous in its character aud presented the colored people’s happy times on Christ mas eve, with their banjo and dance. Miss Merrill sang “Noah and . his Boat,” with violin accompaniment, in true Freed men style. The song was full and run ning over with humor. Great applause followed her production. Miss Mary Wood (’SO) spoke of Heroes, in her accustomed earnest manner; show ed the tendency of the age to worship the heroes of old ; there are greater heroes of the present day; heroes who quietly at tend to the daily duties of life, who help the poor, relieve the sutlering, and work for the salvation of humanity—heroes none the less. Last was a speech by J. I‘. Jackson (’7b) on Compulsory Education. The facts presented in favor of a compulsory law were sound aud convincing. An intel ligent people is the true and only founda tion of a republican or any other form of government. Appropriate music was interspered dur ing the evening, participated in by Profs. Wright and Given, Mrs. Logan, Misses Merrill, Veddcr, Enos, Sellers, and Fer guson. The President,J Mr. George Haggard, thanked the audience for their presence and attention in a few well timed romarks and declared the assembly at an end. On Tuesday evening was the joint exhi bition of the Athenian and Stella Crinita Societies. The introductory performance of the evening was a declamation entitled “Nations and Humanity” by Charles W. Martindale, of Greeley. The speaker made a fine appearance on the stage, and evidently had a very clear conception of the analysis of the piece, and rendered it well, though not possessed of an excel lent voice. This was followed by an oration enti tled “Partyism,” by J. L. Wood, Forest villo. The speech abounded, aud was well delivered, though there might be honest diflerences of opinion as to the merits of certain men named. Miss Josie Agncr gave a fine rendering of the “Flood of Years." “The True and False" was the title of a thoughtful oration by J. P. Martin dale, of Greeley. 1 he closing oration was by Miss Ervillc Harris, of Oskaloosa, in her own inimita ble style. Subject, “The Great Ameri can Purrer," in the handling of which the keen lash of her rhetoric drew the red on the backs of hypocritical tricksters generally and specifically. The entertainment was one of the best ever given by the societies, and had the merit of not lieing of tedious length. Selby Moran, of Kldora, presided with elllclency und dignity. As we go to press, the Phi Chi Theta and I hilomathi Societies are in readiness for the following entertaining programme which no doubt will be rendered in their usual excellent style.

Citizens of Oskaloosa and friends of education every where within reach are cordially invited to be present on all these occasions. RICHLAND RIPPLES. Eds. llbrald. We would like very much to hear from the Chicago Conven tion in this corner. We met Mr. A. Duncan who came to this township last spring. He resides on the J. N. 11. Campbell farm. Mr. Dun can is an intelligent gentleman and a strong republican. One of the speakers at Pella the other day, so the story goes, said that he would as soon scatter llowers on the graves of those who wore the gray as those who wore the blue. Perhaps we do not see alike in many things. # Alexander McCutchen has moved his grocery into thi room lately occupied by Al. Smith. Old Uncle Jim Engle is building a new house. Some of our feeders have sold their cattle. J. T. Uedpath shipped his over to Chicago. George Sbeesley sold his to Charley Miller and so did Engle. Price $3.80. We do hope the Pella folks will not send any more bad whisky over this way. Rich landku. Peoria, June 7, 1880 CEDAR CHIPS. Eds. Herald. —Under the genial influ ence of the continued showers, the crops are booming. Tho only thing the old croakers can find to croak about is the fear that we will get too much rain. The liabing party “came off” last Sat urday, and I learn from some who partic ipated, that it was quite an enjoyable oc casion in spite of the shower; though I could sec no occasion for any war like demonstrations, they had a Canon with them; and I suppose the reason the show ers did not trouble them was that they had their Caves. Malcolm Triplett met with a serious loss on the night of May ,‘JO, by the burn ing of his hou?c. The fire ia supposed to have originated from a vessel of ashes that had been removed from the stove and been left in the kitchen; most of the contents were saved but the house was entirely consumed. Mr. Triplett is ma king preparations to rebuild soon. The Baptist church has lately been much improved in appearance, by paper ing and kalsomining, and I understand will soon be carpeted, aud the pulpit re furnished. The three sabbath schools of this place arc in a flourishing condition. I would like to hurrah for the presiden tial nominee, but ignorance of his name prevents. Fremont, June 7 Sunday-school convention ot the sixth district met in Simpson M. E. church, Monday evening, the 7th inst. Gen. F. M. Drake, president, called the convention to order; devotional exercises were conducted by President Trueblood. Rev. Carnine made an address of wel come, to which the president of the con vention responded. A few speeches of a general character, and the convention ad journed to 8:o0 Tuesday. Tuesday. —Convention called to order. Devotional meeting led by W. A. Spauld ing, a most profitable season, in wbicb the hearts of Christians were quickened. The attendance though not large, was good, and each one seemed in earnest. The business of the convention was opened by reading the minutes of the last evening’s session, also the report of the distiict secretary, Mrs. M. E. Gill, of Centreville. Mrs. Gill not being present, Gilbert L. Farr, the secretary of the con vention, read the report, the substance of which was a history of the district con vention, and an urgent plea for organized eflbrt for the accomplishment of the ends of the convention. This being the lirat meeting of the sixth district Bab bath-school workers, a motion was passed that all workers in Sabb&th-scliool should be considered members of the convention. Committees were appointed so as to facilitate the work of the convention. In the absence of Mr. Bteckel, of Bloomfield, Dr. Coxegave a Normal exer cise, greatly to the interest and profit of the convention. Topic: The Books of the Bible. Afternoon. —Devotional exercises con ducted by Kev. J. M. Baugh. A larger attendance this afternoon, and an in creasing interest is manifested. Hcv. J. U. Dale gave a Normal lesson. Topic: Rowing and Heaping. The lesson embraced the following subdivisions: 1. Bower: Matthew XIII, 37; Matthew XIII, 38; Gal. 0, 7. 2. Seed: Luke VIII, 2; Matthew 13, 38; Matthew 13, 39. 3. Boil: Matthow 18, 19, 23; Luke 8, 15. Heaping: 1. Time to Bow. 2. Luke 8, 12. 8. Gal. 0,7. 4. “He that soweth sparingly shall also reap sparingly.” A short time was devoted to reports from the counties of the district. Dr. Coxc delivered an address. Theme: Word and the Work. ALL AROUND US. A young man by the name of Martin Delaney, a brakeman on the C., It. I. & P. railroad, waa instantly killed and most horribly mangled at Ottumwa laat Friday by being run over by eight cars and an engine. He was between the cars loosen ing a coupling pin when be fell with the above result. His borne was in Keokuk, where the body was taken. The Des Moines Valley Medical Associa tion met in this city Wednesday, June 2d. We have been so deeply engrossed in the political situation as to overlook particu lars about this session, but we learn that it was a very interesting one. About 40 members were present. Two sessions were held in the day time and at night a banquet was partaken of. Dr. Gutch of Albia was chosen President, Dr. Hlnsley of Ottumwa, Vice-President, Dr. William son of Ottumwa Permanent Secretary, Dr. Young of Bloomfield Assistant Secre ry. The next meeting will occur at Albia, in January. Second appearance in this city this season of the Gulick Dramatic company; supporting the famous comedian, Mr. Harry Webber, who will appear in the most amusing eccentric picture of high life ever created, Lord Dnndreary in Tom Taylor’s world-famous comedy, “Our American Cousin.” Houses crowd* ied every where! Universally endorsed by the leading newspapers. Patronized by fashion and culture. Admission 50 and 36 cents. No extra charge for reserv ed seats. Dont forget the date. June 11. Secure your tickets at once and avoid the rush at H. L. Briggs, drug store. Cabinet.— Hon. J. N. H. Campbell has I lately returned from a visit to Ohio, and I brought with him specimens of iron ore I from that section which he left with us I and for which he has our thanks, j Robt. Moore of Harrison also leaves us a specimen of Lake Superior iron ore, very fine. Also a block of erode chew ing gum. This is nothing more nor less than crude petroleum pressed in large cakes. In this form it is sold to the manufacturers who bleach it out, put a little flavor in It, press and cut it out in cakes or strips and sell it to the girls to practice their pretty jaws upon. Come up, girls, and see what the gum you chew is made of. j Who Know#?—A copy of tho Oskaloo sa, Kansas, Sickle is sent us with the fol lowing article marked: “A postal from S. C. Johnson, dated Blooming Grove, Linn county, Kansas, May 27, 1880, says: ‘Please state in your paper that John D. Wilson was killed on the 26th inst. by a team running off near Blooming Grove. I He was 18 years old, and was on his way home to some of his folks near Oskaloosa. He said he had been in Arkansas with bis sister. We can hardly find where to write, He said that he lived a mile and a halt north of Oskaloosa.’ We have made inquiry and can find no ono who knows anything of the unfortunate young man spoken of sbove, and our opinion is that he referred to Oskaloosa, lowa, as his destination, instead of this place.” Bos. Herald.— Did you hoar of the Ashing party on Skunk river Sunday, tho 2<d— if so would you give the particulars? X. Yes, we heard of it. It was a memora ble occasion wasn’t it? The full particu lars would read like a dime novel. Our space Is limited this week, however, and as a full account would be lengthy, we defer it for the present. EAST OSKALOOSA TOWNSHIP. Eds. Herald.— Tho health of this neighborhood is good at present. Our school is going on smoothly and all right under the control of Miesltuhan uah Stephens. Crops of all kinds are looking well, ex cept grass which will be a light crop on account of so much dry weather. It seems as though farmers arc trying to see who can keep their corn the cleanest, which is a sign of good crops. Good prospect for fruit of all kinds so far. It seems that our friend J. B. Redbum cannot keep still after finishing his fine barn which lacks but little of covering half an acre of land, and he has now commenced for himself a fine house; has the basement excavated and two teams are hauling brick; mechanics will be at work in a few days. His neighbors will wake up some morning soon and find J. B. living in a fine large brick mansion. He says that lowa, and especially this part of it, is the best place in the world and ho is going to live here. June 8. East Oskaloosa. Eds. llkkald.— Having seen nothing from this part of the country for some time, I thought that I would try and drop you a few notes. Crop prospects were never better in this section of the county, at this time of year. Hay is going to be short and light. The most of the farmers are going over their com the second time. There are some of the slow ones not started to plow yet, but It is mostly those of the greenback party, who are crying hard times. You asked some time ago for a list of all the Octogenarians in the county. Now I think that I can tell you of about the oldest person! have seen for some time. It is Mrs. Lester; she was 87 years old last Christmas eve, is now In good health for one of her years, retains all of her s crises and can read the finest print with out the aid of glasses. She is the mother of ten children—seven boys and three girls. Two of the sons are dead, the rest are all living in this township. She has sixty grand children and twenty-seven great grand children and every one of them are republicans. Now let anyone beat that. Sunflower. Yesterday was the day of the special election to vote a tax to aid the New Sharon & Eastern R. R. by voting a three percent tax, but it was defeated by, three votes and we all felt much better over it. I hear that our committeeman has called the township convention to appoint dele gates to the county convention, and you may rest assured that they will be Cutts men. Now do you not think that it is about time for our corner to get some of the offices of the county? We have never had one since I can recollect, and I have lived here since ’54; in that time we got to send the Hon. John N. Dixon to Des Moines and this is to be our portion for time without end. So it is no wonder that voters of our party get careless and do not turn out on election day. James Bell and Mrs. J. R. Lester started last Thursday for Michigan to visit their lriends. Mr. Bell expects to bring his father home with him, who is nearly as old as Mrs. Lester, being over 80. I have just been ont over the country, and it is a credit to the farming communi ty to have such enterprising farmers as we have in this corner, but particularly the young farmers, such as the Soults boys, Wm. Hazlctt, D. L. Lyons and sever al others that I could name, are go-ahead young farmers and all of our most indus trious young men are republicans of the true blue. More anon. June 3rd, 1880. Eds. Herald.— Plowing corn is the principal business of the farmers. It all looks well. C. H. Smith and wifo roturn from the west this week. Mr. Cathcart.near Garden Hall, is build ing a large barn, which will be finished soon. Mr. U. B. Stigers returned from Chica go last week. His uncle from Pennsyl vania came home with him. He shipped 21 bead of fat steers which brought him a neat tittle sum. He has about 100 head of hogs which he will ship in the fall. A. C. Bell's school will have a picnic at Bearie’s Grove, two miles south of Gar den Hall, June 26. A grand time is ex pected. Everybody is cordially invited. To those in this vicinity who herd cat tle, plant corn. Ash, and hunt on Sunday, we kindly say to you, you must stop it; if words won't the law must. This is our last notice to you. Letters from Smith county, Kansas, say that corn planted In April is not op yet on acoount of dry weather. Wo never saw the fruit crop look so promising as it does at present in this township. Yours.

Tho sale of this groat work oantinues to advance beyond all precedent In bookselling. Orders for the third 10,000 seta are rapidly reaching the publishers. Tho mag nitude of tlds Encyclopaedia is hardly indicated by its price. It is the largest work ever pub lished in this country. With tho volumes of ad ditions, it contains 40 per cent, more matter than the original Chambers’, the “reduced” price of which was #25; more than 20 per cent in excess of Johnson’s, which sells in its cheapest form at #sl; more than ten per cent, in excess of Appleton's, which, in cloth, is priced at #-0; and in form, style, and qualities generally adap ting it to popular use, we believe it more desira blo than oither of the others at any price. It is published by the American Book Exchange, Tribune Building, New York. They also issue a paper called “The Literary Revolution,” which is sent fVce to all who dosiro It. It will give you many ideas about baok-tnaking you never dreamed of. Specimens of the books oi this house may be seen at this office. Now and then appears among our exchanges a paper so attraotivo that wo pick it out of the common pile and make our moutal or written oomments upon its superior merits. The Weekly Oats City is such a striking specimen of newspaper excellence, and comes to our ta bls tills week enlarged to sixty-four columns; is so typographically neat and perfect that we must pay it the compliment of special review. It Is now one of the largest and handsomest weeklies In the wesl. On its first page several columns of editorialized telegraphic news items appear as a new and valuable feature. Its “Farm and Family” department is edited by Frof. 8. A. Knapp, of the lowa State Agricultu ral College, one of the most scientific and best informed agriculturalists in this oonntry, and « 8 reliable authority as wo havo on such topics. Intelllgont farmers everywhere could profit by regular perusal of this department. The humor ous “Worldly Walfe" aro bright, sparkling and witty, and extensively copied. The (latk City is ably conducted and is in all respects one of ihe great flrst-olass newspapers of the country, and as a family paper is unexcelled; oven its advertising columns are weeded of all objection able advertisements. Tho subscription price is #1.30 a year, and if you want to subscribe for a weekly outside of your own county we know of none we would recommend more highly. Summer Fashions.— With laudable enter prise, Eiiricii’s Fashion Quarterly for the present Summer presents its readers with a beautiful chromo-lithograph, illustrative of ttie Fashions of tho season. Unlike most fashion plates, which are merely creations of the artist’s brain, the present is a faithful reproduction of actual, oxistont costumes, of which not only the full descriptions but tho prices as well, ac company the plate. For the benefit of our lady readers we Append a brief summary of these costumes, extracted from an advance sheet furnished by the publishers. No. 1 represents a walking costume in brown, of summer camel’s hair cloth and polka dot satin. The front is of sitin arranged in soft folds, with side draperies of camel's hair, edged with silk and tapo fringe. The back of the skirt is of oamel's hair, divided from the 9lde draperies by broad bias bands of satin, and or namented with satin bows. The basque is made in French coat style, with broad hip pieces of the polka dot material, and tastefully trimmed cuffs and collar. Price, ft 7.00. No. 2 is a seoond walking dreas, appropriately named the “Sunrise,” and made of gend’anue blue French bunting and French brocade. Dy an ingenious arrangement of the two materials the front is ornamented with a representation of a sun with rays; the side draperies being of bunting meeting at a point below the basque, and drawn to either side of the central design of the front. The basque is of bunting, cut, longaßd round, and appropriately trimmed with the brocade. Price, (25.00. The third figure in the illustration represents a combination dress of silk in two contrasting shades of drab. The underskirt in front is mado of alternate strips of the two materials laid in kilt plaiting*, the back being of a single shade, plain and full. Tho ovorsklrt Is trimmed across the bottom with revers of ooutrasting silk, with a full bow of silk In two shades; tho back being of a darker shade of silk, neatly draped. The basque is made en panier , trim mod to corres pond with the lower part of the costume. Price, (28.50. Tho last figure is that of a dinner or reception dress of garnet colored satin duehoss, elaborate ly trimmed with cashmere bead fringe and pas sementerie. The skirt is arranged in a double scarf on which the trimming is imposed to groat advantage; while the back drapery is formed of a double box plaiting oxtending from the waist downward. The bask is cut with a ooat back an elaborately trimmed. Tho sleeves are open on the upper side, and laced with cords of satin, with bauds of passementerie on either side; tho lower part of tho sleeves, as well as the trimming of tho neck, bolng finished with ruohi ngs and plaitlngs of lace and satin.

Spooner has sold a half Interest in the Appanoose Times, published at Centerville, to parties in Albia, and next week the office will be removed to that place, where a republican paper, the name of which will bo tho Monroe County Republican, will be started shortly. White we wish Mr. Spooner auoccss personally, yet we question the wisdom of thte movement, made as it was by a factional opposition to the Union, and wo fear it bodes no good to the party in Monroe county. The Knoxville Journal was 25 years old last woek, and begins its 2flth under very favorable auspices. The Journal is one of our district ex changes that we always look for and read with interest. It is true and trusty m Its republican ism, sound in Its opinions, and generally cor rect. Its editor, Mr. F. C. Barker is a gentle man admirably adapted to tho position and Is constantly winning friends by his excellent qualities. In common with many others we have for him only good wishes and the hope that ho and bis Journal may long contlnuo in successful life. -HAPPY HEARTB HARBOUR—CHOWRLL.—At the homo of the bride’s parents, at Kookuk. lowa, last woek, Mr. J.

Cummings, 41wlpd Late Downing House. It has been said that he who makes two blades of grass to grow where only one grew before, is a public benefactor.

Almost the entire wheat crop on the liuc of the Nashville and Chattanooga railroad is ser iously effected with rust.

DR. FISHBLATT Hu.' discovered the greatest cure in the world for weakness of the back and limbs, involunta ry discharges, impoteney, general debility, ner vousness, lamruor, confusion of ideas, palpita tion of the heart, timidity, trembling, dimness of sight or giddiness, diseases oi the head throa', nose or skin, affections ot the liver, lungs, stomach or bowels—those terrible disordurs arising from solitary habits of youth—and se cret practices more fatal to their victims than • tho 8"rg» of (ho Syren to the manners of Ulv Fees, blighting their most radiant hopes or t QtiCipatiQns, rendering marriage impossible. Young Men who have become victims of solitary vice, that dreadful and destructive habit which annually sweeps to an untimely grave thousands ot young men of exalted talent and brilliant intel lect, who might otherwise have entranced 11s tening senates with the thunder of tnelr elo quence, or wake to eestaoy the living lyre, may call with tull confidence.

Married persons, or young men contemplating marriage, aware of physical weakness, loss of pro-creative powers, impoteney, or anyotWhr disqualifications, speedily relieved. lie who pluccs himself under the care of Dr. Fishblatt may religiously confide in his honor as a gen tleman, and confidently rely upon his skill as a physician. Organal Weakness, Immediately cured and full vigor restored. This distressing affliction—which renders life a burden and marriage impossible—is the penalty paid for improper indulgence. Young persons are too apt to commit excesses from not being aware of tho dreadful consequences that ensue. Now who that understands this subject will deny that procreation is lost sooner by those falling into Improper habits than by the pru dent. This abuse occasions nervous irritability, dyspepsia, palpitation of tbe heart, indigestion wasting of the frame, cougb, consumption and death. DR. FISHBLATT. Dr. Fishblatt, graduate of one of the most cm inent colleges In the United States, has effected some of the most astonishing cures that were ever known; many troubled with ringing in the hcad and ears when asleep, great nervousness, being alarmed at certain sounds with frequent blushing, attended sometimes with derangement of the mind, were cured immediately.
