ScrofUla, or King's Evil,
w a constitutional disease, a corruption of the
blood, by which this fluid becomes vitiated,
weak, and poor. Being In the circulation, it
pervades the whole body, and may burst out
in disease on any part of it. No organ ia free
from its attacks, nor is there one which it may
not destroy. The scrofulous taint ia variously
caused by mercurial disease, low living, dis
ordered or unhealthy food, impure air, filth
ana lllthy habits, the depressing vices, and,
above all, by the venereal infection. What
ever be its oriirin, it is hereditary in the con
stitution, descending " from parents to children
unto tne third and luurtli generation : indeed,
it seems to be the rod of Ilim who says, 11 1
will visit the iniquities or the lathers upon
their children."
Its effects commence by deposition from the
blood of corrupt or ulcerous matter, which, in
the lungs, liver, and internal organs, is termed
tubercles; in the glands, swellings; and on
the surface, eruptions or sores. This foul cor
ruption, which genders in the blood, depresses
the energies of life, so that scrofulous constitu
tions not only suii'er from scrofulous com
plaints, but they have fur less power to with
stand tho attacks of other diseases ; conse
quently vast . numbers perish by disorders
which, although not scrofulous in their nature,
are still rendered futal by this taint in the
system. Most of tho consumption which de
cimates the human family has its origin directly
in tliis scrofulous contamination; and many
destructive diseases of the liver, kidneys, brain,
and, indeed, of all the organs, arise from or
are aggravated by the same cause.
One quarter of all our people are scrofulous ;
their persons are invaded by this lurking in
fection, and their health is undermined by it.
To cleanse it from the system we must renovate
the blood by an alterative medicine, and in
vigorate it by healthy food and exercise.
Such a medicine wo supply in
Compound Extract of Sarsaparilla,
the most effectual remedy which the medical
skill of our times can devise for this every
where prevailing and fatal malady. It is com
bined uom the most active remcuials that have
been discovered for the expurgation of this foul
disorder from the blood, and the rescue of the
system from its destructive consequences.
Hence it should be employed for the cure of
not only Ocrofuln, but also those other affec
tions which arise from it,, such as Ebuptivb
and Skin Diseases, St. Anthony's Fire,
Rose, or Erysipelas, Fimpt.es, Pustules,
Blotches, Blains and Soils, TuMons, Tetter
and Salt Rheiw, Scald Head, IIinoworm,
Rheumatism, Syphilitic and Mercurial Dis
eases, Dropsy, Dyspepsia, Dehilitt, and,
indeed, all Complaints arising from Vitia
ted oh Impure Blood. The popular belief
in " impurity of the blood" is founded in trath,
for scrofula is a degeneration of the blood. The
particular purpose and virtue of this Sarsapa
rilla is to purify and regenerato this vital fluid,
without which sound health is impossible in
contaminated constitutions.

Wo ate enabled hero to offer the community a
remedy which, while it cures the above complaints
with certainty, is still perfectly harmless in any
quantity. Such a remedy is invaluable in districts
where these afflicting disorders prevail. This
"Curb" expels the miasmatic poison of Fever
and Aque from the system, and prevents the de
velopment of the disease, if taken on the first ap
proach of its premonitory symptoms. It is not only
the best remedy ever yet discovered for this class
of complaints, out also tho cheapest. The lame
quantity we supply for a dollar brings it within the
reach of every body; ana m bilious districts, where
Fever and Aoub prevails, everv bodv should
have it and use it freely both for cure and protec
tion. A great superiority of this remedy over any
other ever discovered fur the speedy and certain
cure of Intermittcnts is that it contains no Quinine
or mineral, consequently it produces no quinism or
other injurious effects whatever upon the constitu
tion. Ihosc cured by it are left as healthy as if
they had never hnd the disease.
lever and Ague is not alone the conseqnence of
the miasmatic poison. A great variety of disor
ders arise from its irritation, among which are
Neuralgia, lihettmatism, Gout, Headache, Blind
nest. 'J ooth ache. Earache. Catarrh. Asthma. Pal
pitation, Painful Affection of the Spleen, lhstcr-
ia, uw. f. ..if vuH, Kf uiyaid aiiu
rangement of the Stomach, all of which, when
originating in this cause, pot on the intermittent
type, or become periodical. This " Curb " expels
the poison from the blood, and consequently cures
them all alike. It is an invaluable protection to
immigrants and persons travelling or temporarily
residing in the malarious districts. If taken occa
sionally or daily while exposed to the infection,
that will be excroted from the system, and cannot
accumulate in sufficient quantity to ripen into dis
ease. Henco it is even more valuablo for protec
tion than cure, and few will ever suffer from Inter
mittenta if they avail themselves of the protection
this remedy affords.

Ethel and Archie Clare.
I shall be happy when It Is said,
"Xthel and Archie Clare are wed t "
For you have hli heart, and I hit troth
Btbel, dear, cm A foes ui both t
We are two blossoms on one stem
You are the fair tree's diadem;
You are a red rose fully blown
lam tho ptleaterer grown;
Therefore he gathers your bloom, and I
Am left by tbe old house wall to die I
Nol but I never could die for him,
Though all the world with my lots wers dim.
He la fickle and false, and vain,
A scoffer at woman's joy and paia;
Wearing ths love of the foolish Ihlug
As I would wear a ribbon or ring,
Only to tire and toas It by
for a newer gaud and a later tie.
Well, yoa may alt In his house, and aing,
A summer bird with a fettered wing
But I shall be up, and out and awsy,
free ss the winds that blow in May,
Over the hills and the roaring sea.
Breasting the aunahlne glorioutljl
Scorning your meaner prison bars,
I shall be psltoed among the stars,
High over the drowning sea of tears.
Dons with sorrows, and hopes and fears;
Never the broken vows of men
Shall trouble my Infinite quiet thml
Yon will envy me, little one,
You In the shadow, and I In the sun1
But, beautiful Xthsl, slater mine.
By the red light of your bridal wine
By your own face, so tenderly fair!
By ths false heart of Archie Clare!
By my love and my ruined faith1
By all that la strong In lire and death,
Though he wed you this very dsy,
With face turned heavenward I ahall prsy
Till my soul goes out at a deathly door
God's peace abide with them evermorel
A Soldier's Emotion in Battle.
Our citizen soldiers inexperienced in tbe bat
tle field will find tbe most terrible moments
Inst before the combat begins. A soldier in
his narration of personal adventures in the Mex-
loan war, published in "How' Achievement of
Americans, gives some interesting Items on
this head in his description of the battle of
Palo Alto, tbe opening battle of tbe war.
When all was ready, both armies stood still

Thus stood tbose two belligerent armies, face

crowded into those few moments! Look at our
men! a clammy sweat Is settled all over faces
slightly pale, not from cowardly fear, but from
an awful sense of peril, combined with a deter

the moments in which true soldiers resign them
selves to their fate, and console themselves with
the reflection that whatever may befall tbem
tbey will act with Aoitor; these are the momenta
when the absolute coward suffers more than
death when, if not certain he would be shot in
his tracks, be would turn and flee. Fighting is
very hard work; tbe man who has passed

a white curl of smoke sprang up there from one

arose, succeeded by a booming sound, and the
shot came crashing toward us. The enemy fired
very rapidly; and their balls knocked tbe dust

The Ruins of Palenque and Other
Monumental Relies.
The principal structure remaining among the
rains of Palenque, stood on a great pyramidal
mound of nearly three hundred feet squsre, and
forty feet high, faoed with stone. Upon this
foundation rose the building, covering a space
of about two hundred feet square. The walls,
of massive stone laid in mortar, were carefully
adjusted to the points of the compass; snd the
entire front was stuccoed and painted. On this
stucco were represented human -figures, some
of them colossal, In various and significant at
titudes, witrj nierogiypbics near, which, no
doubt, originally explained their meaning.
These figures, in facial outline, resemble the
Choctaw and Flathead Indians of our own coun
try. On tbe Interior walls remain similar representations,
of which some are very striking;

floor of the building is of cement, ss bard ss

ments of great capitals on tbe Mexican plateau,
which were crowded with inhabitants at the
time of tbe Spanish conquest. . This populous
and comparatively refined city, said by Cortex

resolved "That the flag of the thirteen United
States be thirteen stripss, alternate red and
white, and that the Union be thirteen stars,
white on a bine field, representing a new con
stellation." This wss made publlo on the 3d of
September following. Previous to this our na

will, that a playmate jeered before a laughing
crowd of boy judges;no verdict of alter life would

will sympathize, and that man or woman or

A Mill Run by the Spirit of its Former
Mr. G. N. Roberto is putting np a grist mill,
three miles east or Corunna. Tbe machinery
was taken from the Nash mill, in Plymouth.
Wsyne, county. The story ran that after the
decease or Mr. Nash, the owner of tbe mill,
strange sights were seen, and strange noises
were beard about the old mill. At the witching
hour of midnight, a ball of fire waa aeen pro
ceeding from tbe grave-yard to the mill. Wood,
nor stone, nor Iron could bar its progress, for it
mattered not how securely every avenue of in.
grees wu olosed, the ball or fire would find a
way to tbe interior of the mill, the machinery
would be set in motion, and all about the mill
would have the appearance of bustling activity
and farmers leaving grist there overnight would
find it all ground and ready for them lo the
morning, tolled (so scrupulous was this unseen
agent in ita dealings) to the fraction of an ounce.
Tbe mystery waa in course of time solved by
someone In the neighborhood, who had a com
munication from the spirit of th defunct Nash,
stating that it was the spiritual essenoe of him
self that bad been noting th part of midnight
miller, and that the object was to sustain tbe
reputation or tbe mill. It is eonjectured by
some that changing the looalityof the machine,

run his mill at a very trifling expense, being sure
