peculiar and important relations which
they sustain, their peculiar TorgStnizatiori
and the offices the perform, are subject
to many sufferings. Freedom from these
contribute in no small degree to their
happiness and welfare, for. none can be
happy who are ill. . Not only so, but no
one of these various female complaints
can long be suffered to run on without
involving the . general health of the in
dividual, and ere long producing perma
nent sicknessand premature decline. Nor
is it pleasant to consult a physician for the
relief of these various delicate affections,
and only upon the most urgent necessity
will a true woman so far sacrifice her
greatest charm as to do this. -. The sex
will then thank its for placing in their
hands simple specifics which will be
found efficacious in relieving aud curing
almost every one .of those troublesome
complaints peculiar to the sex,' ; '"

Hundreds suffer on in silence,' and
hundreds of others a ily vainly to drug
gists and doctors, who either merely tan
tatalize them with the hope of a cure or
apply remedies which make them worse.
I would not wish to assert anything that
would do injustice to the afflicted, but I
am obliged to say that although it may
be produced from excessive exhaustion
of the powers of life, by laborious em
ployment, unwholesome air . and food,
profuse menstruation, the use of tea and
coffee, and frequent childbirth, it is far
oftener caused by direct irritation, ap
plied to the mucous memhjane of- the
vagina itself. -
When reviewing the causes of these
distressing complaints, it is most painful
to contemplate the attendant evils con
sequent : upon tbem. It is but simple
justice to the subject to enumerate a few
of the 'many additional causes which so
largely affect the life, health and happi
ness of woman in all classes of society,
and which, consequently, affect more or
less directly, the welfare of .the entire
human family,; :The mania that, exists
for precocious education and marriage,
causes the years that nature designed
for corporeal development to be wasted
and perverted in the restraints of dress,
the early confinement of school, and es
pecially in the unhealthy excitement of
the ball-room. Thus, with: the body
half-clothed, and the mind unduly ex
cited, by pleasure, perverting in mid
night revel the hours designed by nature
for sleep and rest, the work of destruc
tion is half accomplished. .
In consequence of this early strain
upon her . system," unnecessary effort is
required. by the. delicate rotary to re
tain her situation in school at a later
day, thus aggravating the' evil. ' When
one excitement is over, another in pros
pective keeps the mind morbidly sensi
tive to impression, while the now con
stant restraint of fashionable dress, ab
solutely forbidding the exercise indis
pensable to the attainment and retention
of organic health and strength ; the ex
posure to night air ; the sudden change
01 temperature ; the complete prostra
tion produced by excessive dancing,
must, of necessity, produce' their , legiti
mate effect. At last, an early marriage
caps the climax of misery, aud the un
fortunate one, hitherto so utterly regard
less of the plain dictates and remon
strances of her delicate nature, becomes
an unwilling subject of medical treat
ment. This is but a truthful picture of
the experience ot thousands ot our young
Long before the ability to exercise the
functions of the generative organs, they
require an education of their peculiar
nervous system, composed ot what is
called the tissue, which is, in common
with the female breast and lips, evident
ly under the control of mental emotions
and associations at an early period of
life : and, as we shall subsequently see,
these emotions, when excessive, lead,
long before puberty, to habits which sap
the very life of their victims ere nature

Truth Stranger than Fiction.
.. In the year' 18 there lived in Irei
dell county. North Carolina, a Presby
terian .'minister by the name of Gurry.
He ; was a man in comfortable circmn-i
stances, of most excellent reputation,
with a large family of sons and daugh
ters. Among these was a boy by the
name of Nixon, noted for his sprightli
oess, his activity and courage. ' . . i
Many are the incidents recorded of
his early days, wherein he displayed his
bravery and won the respect and admi
ration of his schoolmates. He seemed
impulsive, generous, and the possessor
of many noble qualities. ' ' "'
From childhood Nixon Curry was in
love. His fair one was a erirl somewhat
younger than,himself,attendins; the same
school with him. She returned his
affection, and so 'ardently were they at
tached to one another that, what is most
rare in childhood, no rival was ever suf
fered to coma between them.
Thus thev grew np in a delicious
dream of the future ; and as their years
increased, so, apparently, did their pas
sion tor each other. At ntteen this was
so evident that their parents forbade all
interviews between them. Her parents
were the very F. F.'s of North Carolina,
and they had and could easily secure
more brilliant prospects for her.
The natural consequence followed.
The lovers met by stealth, and renewed
their pledges to each otner. They
promised that, whatever should occur,
she would never wed any one else, . and
Nixon vowod to stand by her so long as
a breath of life remained in his body.
At length, at the age of eighteen,
when Lucy's relatives were doing their
utmost to force her into the arms of an
other, she fled with her true and devoted
love. They were immediately pursued
and overtaken, when the enraged Nixon
Curry, brought to bay, turned and shot
his rival and one of the others, and re
newed his flight. The pursuit was hot,
but he succeeded in eluding them, and
took refuge in the Allegheny Mountains',
near the sources of the Catawba.
Here really begins the extraordinary
career of Nixon Curry. Under the
plea of necessity, he took up the profes
sion of robber, and speedily rendered
his name famous -by the number and
character ot nis exploits. Without at
tempting to give any of the minor in
cidents, it should be stated that the
young robber never took a life for the
sa ke of plunder, although he did it
again and again to avoid-arrest. '- ' ' ;
The Governor of North Carolina of
fered $5,000 for his apprehension, and
many parties,, tempted by the' offer, en
gaged in the pursuit. They frequently
gained sight of the notorious bandit;
more thau once the crack of his death
dealing rifle was heard from some ad
joining rock; but never were they able
to discover his retreat or briug him to
bay. ' ' .: ' ; '
Suddenly all rumors of his daring
conduct ceased, and although the search
was continued, he was seen no more in
North Caiolina. It was . fudged that
his quarters were becoming- too hot for
safety, and he had, therefore, prudently
removed them while the opportunity re
mained to him.
During the first settlement of the fer
tile delta, bordering on the St. Francis,
now in the State of Arkansas, an emi
grant made his appearance, calling him
self John Hill. He rapidly became the
most popular man in the settlement
Although of moderate means he was
sober, industrious, generous, andofex-
teuded hospitality, and such continued
to be his character in the country which
he had adopted for a period extending
over about a dozen years. .
During all this time not a quarrel
some word occurred between him and
any of his neighbors; and yet all knew
that it was from no lack of courage on
the part of Hill, for of all the hunters
that pierced the jungle of the cane in
the "Great Swamp," or descended by
torchlight into the bowels of the Ozark
Mountains, he had the reputation of the
most fearless. He was overwhelming
ly elected again and again to the Terri
torial Legislature, and distinguished
himself by his powerful and impassioned
eloquence, and speedily became a leader
in the ranks of his own party. He was
a member of the Convention which
formed the State Constitution, and was
re-elected to represent bis county in the
Senate of Arkansas.
And now began his second series of
misfortunes. Hill s roost intimate neigh
bors were the Strongs, four brothers of
considerable wealth, a great deal of am
bition and, in the phrase of the country,
"famous fighters." A close and cordial
intimacy grew up between them and
Hill, and the latter, most unfortunately
and unguardedly, made George, the old
est, a confidant of his previous history.
It so happened that George had a most
ambitious desire for political distinction
aud made a request of Hill that he should
resign his seat in the Senate in his favor.
Hill refused, and the brothers conspired
Sending to North Carolina, they pro
cured a copy of the-reward offered for
Nixon Curry, the notorious robber. The
four, powerful and determined as they
were, dared not attempt his capture
alone, but secured the assistance of a
dozen men and "made the attempt to
capture Hill in his own house. The
latter never forgot his daily peril. He
always carried a . double-barreled shot
gun, two long rifle pistols, aud a formid
able knife. Arkansas has never been
noted as a peaceably-inclined State, and
in those days its population numbered a
greater per cent, of desperadoes and
lawless men than it does at the present.
The attack of the Strongs proved a
dreadful one for themselves. Two of
the brothers were shot dead, while six of
the others were badly wounded, several
of them mortally, when the rest of them
were glad to withdraw for the time.
This affair caused the most unbounded
excitement throughout Arkansas. The
thought that the chivalrous and highly
popular John Hill could be identical
with the notorious robber, Nixon Curry,
was staggering to hundreds. Many for
the time refused to believe it.
Perhaps the state of public feeling
can best be shown from the following
extracts from the Little Rock Gazette.
The first appeared when Hill became so
popular during the days' of the Conven
"Among the truest friends of the peo
ple of all in the present Convention may
be named John Hill, of St. Francis, His
energy, eloquence and courage fully en
title him to the place he holds, and, as
we "trust,: will "long retain that bf the
leader of the Arkansas Democracy." '
.. The second extract is. taken from the
same paper for May, 1S40 :; "
. "Bloody Affrav A desperate en
counter occurred in St-Francis last
week. . Two distinguished citizens were
killed and ' three others dangerously
wounded. The difficulty resulted from
an attempt to arrest John Hill, a mem
ber ot the last Legislature, and formerly
of the State Convention, who,' it is al
leged, is the notorious robber Nixon
Curry, who committed such atrocities
fifteen years ago in the mountains ol
. A requisition was sent by the Gover
nor of North Carolina demanding the
surrender of Nixon Curry. The Gov r:
nor of Arkansas published an additional"
reward for the arrest of John Hill, ar.d
thus, between the two, it seemed as if
it was about up with the victim..
: Hill packed up hastily, and set out
with his wife and children for Upper -Arkansas,
where he knew of the exist
ence of a band of desperadoes that he
had reason to believe would protect him.
He was pursued by over a hundred of
the citizens, many of them unarmed, aud
attending only for the purpose of wit
nessing the sport and securing a part pf
the munificent reward that was offered
for his apprehension. ' Hill was over
taken at Conway Court House by these
men, and, halting his wagon and admon
ishing his wife and children to keep their
places, he marched forth with his death
dealing gun. ;
The gallantry of the action and Hill's
incredible bravery operated in his favor.
Many were unwilling to hurt so intrepid
a character; others were afraid; a panic
was created, and Hill pursued his way
. . Subsequent attempts were made to
arrest him, but all resulted tragically or
ludicrously to those attempting it. It
was known that Hill could never be ta
ken alive, and many began to beliuve
that he could not even when dead.
The constant pursuit and bunting him
changed hia nature. He became morose
and sour, and unable to follow any regu
lar business. He resorted to the gam
bling.table for the support ot his family.
He became a driuker, too, and was
speedily transformed into a most bitter
and quarrelsome opponent.
If Hill had been famous among the
' mountains of North Carolina, he now be
came doubly so. Excepting, perhaps,
tbat prince of duelists, James Bowie,
there never was a man who inspired
more terror. Men who had acquired a
wide ' reputation for deeds of daring
turned pale when they encountered John
Hill. Bullies who sought quarrels on
the slightest pretext accepted all manner
ot insults from him without a singl
word of remonstrance.
One day in September, 1845, while
he was seated at the breakfast table,
Hill burst into tears.
. "What is the matter, dear 1" inquired
"i nave had a dreadful dream, it is
a warning. I know I shall die before
sunset! ' Together we have encountered
perils and - hardships : you abandoned
wealth and position for my sake, ami
you have never spoken an unkind word
to me. We have loved from childhood,
and that love has never known abate
ment. It is this that troubles me not
regard for myself. It is indelibly im
pressed upon my mind that I shall die a
horrible death before sundown, and the
thought that it will distress you also dis
These were the exact words of Hill,
as testified by his wife and children
His wife told him :
"Then, my dear husband, do not go to
(The Circuit Court of Pope county, in
which Hill resided, it should be remark
ed, was then in session.)
"Yes, my wife, I must go," he replied;
"when a man s tune has come, he should
not seek to avoid death, but meet it
bravely." Then turning to his son
William, a bright boy of thirteen, he told
him to go aud get the Bible; and upon it
be made him swear to kill the mail that
killed his father. ' '
"Here comes Moses Howard, father;
fie win protect yon,' remarked Mary, the
daughter, as she descried the youth ap
proaching. The youth, who was a fine, powerful
looking man, chatted a few minutes with
the family, and then went out with Hill,
who had shaved and dressed himself
with particular neatness, and embraced
Lis wife with the warmest affection, and
with tears in his eyes, before leaving.
As soon as the two reached town Hill
began drinking deeply, and showed a
re ore quarrelsame disposition than ever.
He iDsulted every body that crossed his
path, and all the entreaties of the young
man failed to pacify him. Finally he
declared that be would clef r the court
house, and dashed into the rourt-room
with fury depicted in his countenance.
Judges, lawyers, jury, spectators, all
made a rush for the door. One man
who lagged behind was seized by Hill
and beaten unmercifully.
Young Howard caught bold of the, in
furiated man and attempted to restrain
bim, when, glaring like a tiger.he turned
upon the youth and struck him to the
earth. Before he could rise Hill sprang
upon him and commenced pounding him.
"For God's sake, stop, Hill ! Don't
you know me, your friend Howard 1"
Hill seemed to grow more furious each
moment, and finally clutched a pistol,
determined to take his friend's life.
Howard, seeing that the crisis had come,
seized the bowie-knife that protruded
from his vest and buried it in bis bosom
"The dream is fulfilled!" exclaimed
Hill with a Bmile of singular sweetness,
that lingered on his naturally handsome
face after he was a corpse. He theu
died without a groan.
Howard looked down into his face, as
if unable to realize what he had done.
Then he burst into tears.
"God knows I would not have done it
if I could have helped it, but it was
either your life or mine."
He turned away with a gloomy air,
and upon the instant disappeared. He
was never seen in Arkansas again, but
several years after a trader brought the
news that he was living in San Antonio,
Were we writing fiction, we should
here lay aside the pen ; but as we are
giving facts, which can be substantiated,
duty compels us to add another incident
before the tragic tale is ended.
It will be remembered that Hill en
joined upon his sou to avenge his death.
Faithfully did that son obey the com
mand. When he had reached his six
teenth year he left for Texas. He was
gone several months. When he return
ed he said to his mother :
"It is done, mother 1 ' Poor Howard !
I pitied him, but I had to do it."
