THURSDAY. JANUARY 1, 18G3.
AE-iOiN’E. _
Orpheus C. Kerr, in a late characteristic letter
to the New York Sunday 2Ttrcttvy y contributes the
following exquisite poem:
Three stalwart song old Sweyn, the Saxon, had,
Brave, liardylads for battle or Ihcchase:
And though, like peasant, barbarously clad,
Bach wore the Nameless Noble in Ids face;
One o'er another rose their heads, in tiers,
Steps for their father's honorable years.
One night, In autumn, sat they ronnd the fire,
In the rude cabin bountifa i of home;
2diid by the reverence due from child to sire.
Bold in the manhood unto maet'ry come:
!7orbing their tasks o'er huntsman a forest gear,
Loos'nlng the bow and sharpening the spear.
Lost In his thoughts, old Sweyn. the Saxon, stood,
Leaning in silence 'gainst the chimney**tone;
Staring, unconscious, at the blazing wood,
Steeped in the mood of mind he oft bad known:
As an old tree, whose etonteet branches shake,
Scarce from their vigor sign of life will take.
Athol, the bearded "-sth his bow had done,
Alfred, the nimble, laid his spear aside;
Edrlc. the fairest, tiring of hie fun.
Left the old bound to sluaibcron hlshldc;
Yet wae their sire like one whose feature seem
Sliadcd by sleep, and all their light a dream.
Bold In the favor of the eldest-born,
Atboi for both his younger brothers spoke:
“Father, the for is prowling in the corn.
And hear the night-owl hooting from the oak;
Let ns to couch." But Sweyn had raised his head.
And thus, unwitting what had paea'd, he said:
“ See. from my breast, I draw this chain of gold”—
Falrlu the firelight royally It shone—
“ This for his honor that shall best unfold
Who. of all creatures, is most alone;
Take him from palace, monast'ry, or cot,
Loving, unloved, forgetting, or forgot.”
Then Athol spoke, with thoughtful tone and look;
“ He is the loneliest—most alone of all,
Who, in a skill to the mid-seas forsook,
Finds not an echo, oven, to bis call;
If coho lived, notall alone were be;
But there's no echo on the solemn sea !*’
And Alfred next—“ But lonelier, brother, far,
The wretch thatllces a just avenging rod;
To him all scenes arc wastes—a foe the star.
All earth he's lost, yet knows no bcav'n, no God,
Most lonely he. who, making man his foe,
Veto man's Maker darcth not to go!”
Thus spoke the lads, with wit beyond their years;
And yet the old man held bis beard and sighed,
As one who gains the form his wishing wears,
Bnt wishes stills something most denied;
Upon his youngest eager looks he turned.
And EdrSc’s check with grace ingenious burned.
*• I think, my father'*—ami his tones were low,
“ That lonelier yet, and most alone, is bo
Scarce taught, tho crowds are leading, where to go,
Aud one face missing, can no other see;
Though nil the Norman's court around him moves,
He is alone apart from her he loves.”
A hush fell on them. Then, with loving air
And all the touching romance of the old.
The* hoary father kissed young Edrlc'* hair,
Aud o'er bis shoulders threw the chain of gold;
Then fell upon his darling's neck, and cried.
*• I have been lonely since thy mother died 1”

PREPARATIONS FOB TUB EXECUTION OP TUB
TIUBTT-SINB SIOUX rUISOKEKS.
Immediately upon the receipt of the order
postponing the time of the execution from
Friday, the Wth, to Friday, the Sdth iiist., the
military authorities here commenced making
the requisite preparations for the execution.
To prevent disappointment to many persons
•who would have otherwise collected here to
witness the execution, Col. Hiller issued and
caused to be circulated extensively an order
which has already been copied into the col
umns of the 2 nss, notifying the people of the
postponement. Grounds were selected upon
which to erect the gallows on the levee oppo
site the present Indian quarters. The gallows
Is now in process of erection, and promises to
be a very substantial structure; and if not
carried away after the execution, in parcels,
as relics and keepsakes, will serve well for
future occasions of a like character. It is
twenty-lourfect square, with posts liflcenfcet
between joints, and is so arranged as to afford
room for the hanging of ten Indians on each
side. It might have been longer, had the
President been less squeamish, and even then
justice would have been defrauded of its dues.
REMOVAL OF THE CONDEMNED TO SAFE QL'AK-
Culprits.
GALLOWS.
TERB.
On Monday the 22nd lust., the condemned
prisoners were separated from the other
prisoners and removed to a room on the
lower floor of Lccclic’s stone building. Here
a strong guard is stationed and every precau
tion taken to insure not only their safe keep
ing, but also their safety, as against the vio
lence of a few of our misguided, though deeply
Injured fellow citizens.
COLONEL MILLER'S ADDRESS TO THE CULPRITS
—THE DEATH WARRANT REAP.
On the afternoon of the day of the removal
of the prisoners, Col. Miller, accompanied by
his interpreter, other officers and a few citi
zens, proceeded to the new prison and an
nounced the decision of the President. Ad
dressing the interpreter, Rev. Mr. Riggs, he
said:
Tell these thirty-sine condemned men that the
commanding officer of this place has called to
speak to them upon a very serious subject this
afternoon.
Their great father at Washington, after carefully
reading what the witnesses testified to in their
several trials, has come to tiie conclusion that they
have each been guilty of wantonly usd wickedly
murdering his white children/ And for this reason
he has directed iliat they each be hanged by the
neck until they are dead, on next Friday; and that
order will be carried into efiect on that day, at 10
o'clock in the forenoon:
That good ministers nreherc—both Catholic and
Protestant—from amongst whom each one can se
lect a spiritual adviser, who will be permitted to
commune with them , constantly during the four
days that they arc yet to live:
Tliat I wifi now cause to be read the letter of
their Great Father at Washington, first in English,
and then in their own language. (The President's
order was here read.)
Say to them now that they have so sinned against
their fellow men, that there is no hope for clemen
cy except in the mercy of God, through the merits
of the blessed Redeemer; and that I earnestly ex
hort them to apply to that as their only remaining
source ot comfort andconeolatiou.
Very naturally it would be expected that
this scene would be peculiarly solemn and dis
tressing to the doomed savages. To all ap
peanmeesj however, it was not so. The pris
oners received their sentence very’ coolly. At
the close of the first paragraph they gave the
usual grunt of approval; but as the second
was being intepreted to them, they evidently
discovered the drift of the matter, and their
approval was less general and with but little
miction.
Severn! Indians smoked their pipes com
posedly during the rending, nud we observed
ope in particular who, when the lime of exe
cution was designated, quietly knocked the
ashes from bis pipe and filled it afresh with
his favorite kinneklunlck; while another was
slowly rubbing a pipcfull of the same article
in his*hand, preparatory to a good smoke.
The Indians were evidently prepared forthe
visit and the announcement of their sentence
—one or two having overheard soldiers talk
ing about it when they were removed to a se
parate apartment.
At the conclusion of the ceremony. Col.
Miller instructed Major Brown to tell the In
dians that each should be privileged to desig
nate tbc minister of his choice, that n record
of the same would be made, and the minister
»o selected would have free intercourse with
him.
The Colonel and spectators then withdrew,
leaving the ministers in consultation with the
prisoners.
’ PROHIBITING THE SALE OF LIQUOR TO SOL-
DIERB.
On Monday a general order was promulgat
ed by the commander of the post, forbidding
all persons in Mankato, aud the adjoining ter
ritory for the distance of ten miles from head
quarters, to sell or give intoxicating liquors,
including wines and D?er, to the enlisted in<?n
of the United States forces in this valley or
vicinity, unless it be upon an order from the
Colonel commanding.
CONFESSION OP THE PRISONERS..
Nearly all of the prisoners tinder sentence,
have made confessions to their spiritual ad
visers. They freely admit having been en
gaged in the several battles; bat deny tbc
charge of having u wantonly and wickedly”
murdered while people. In this connection
they make one sensible statement, to-wit:
That it is a shame they should be hung, while
others of the prisoners who are stiu more
guilty, should be allowed to go unpunished.
In making these statements, confessions
and denials they were generally calm; but a
few individuals were quite excited. They
were immediately checked by others, and told
that they were all dead men and there was no
reason why they should not toll the truth.
Many of them have indited letters to their
friends in which they say they are very dear
to them, but will sec them no more. They
exhort them not to cry or change their dress
for them. Some of them say they expect to
go and dwell with the Good Spirit, and ex
press the hope that their friends will all join
them.
On Tuesday evening they extemporized a
dance with a wild Indian song. It was feared
that this was only a cover for something else
which might be attempted, aud their chains
were thereafter fastened to the floor. It
seems, however, rather probable, that they
were only singing their death song. Their
.friends from the other prison have been In to
’ bid them farewell, and they are now ready to
die.
SOLDIERS AND PEOPLE GATHERING.
The - weather is as mild as early antumn.
The ttreets arc muddy, and the traveling bad.
Nevertheless the people, soldiers ana civil
ians arc coming in from every direction; and
present appearances indicate that there will
he a vast multitude convened here by the
hour of execution.
LETTER FROM ONE OP THE CONDEMNED
INDIANS.
The following is a copy of a letter from one
of the condemned prisoners to his chief and
father-in-law. Wabashaw. It was taken down
in the exact language dictated hytho prisoner,
and excepting its untrutlifillness, we think it
an excellent letter:
Wajiashaw:— Ton have deceived me. You told
me that if we followed the advice of Gen. Sibley,
and give ourselves up to the whites, ail would be
well—no Innocent man would be injured. I have
not killed, wounded, or injured a white man, or
any white persons. X have not participated lu the
plunder of their property: and yet to-day, lam set
apart for execution and must die In a few* dava,
while men who are guilty will remain in prison.
My wife Is your daughter, my children are your
grandchildren. I leave them In your care and un
cr yourprotoetion. I>o not let them suffer, and
when mv children arc grown up, let them know
that their father died because he followed the ad
vice of his chief, and without having the blood of
a white man to answer for to the Great Spirit.
Hy wife and children are dear to me. Let them
not grieve for me. Let them remember that the
brave should be prepared to meet death; and I will
do as becomes a Dacota.
Your son-In-l.ur.

The above Indian was convicted of partici
pating in the murders and robberies at the
Upper Agency; and the sworn testimony at
Washington differs materially from his con
fession as given alone.
PARTING INTERVIEW WITH OLD ASSOCIATES.
On Wednesday, eachlndicn set apart fores
cention. was permitted to send for two or
three of-his relatives or friends confined in
the same prison, for the purpose of bidding
them a final adieu, and to carrysnch messages
to absent relatives as each person might be
disposed to send. Major Brown was present
during the interview, and describes them as
being very sad and affecting. Each Indian had
some word to send his parents or family.
"When speaking of their wives and children
almost every one was affected to tears.
Good counsel was eontlo the children. They
were in many cases exhorted to an adoption
of Christianfty and the life of good feeling to
ward the whiles. Most of them spoke confi
dently of their hopes of salvation. They had
been constantly attended by Rev. Dr. "William
son, Rev. Van Kavmix and Rev. S. R. Riggs,
whose efforts in bringing these poor criminals
to a knowledge of the merits of the Blessed
Bcdecmcr, had been eminently success. These
icntlcmen are all conversant with the Dakota
language and could converse and plead with
thcTndiaus in their own language.
There is a ruling passion with many Indians,
and Ta-zoo could'not refrain from its enjoy
ment even in this sad ‘hour. Ta-tl-ml-ma
was sending word to his relatives not to
mourn for his loss. He said he was old, and
could not hope to live long under any cir
cumstances, and his execution would not
shorten his days a great deal, and dying as he
did, innocent of any white man’s blood, he
hoped would give him a better chance to be
saved; therefore, he hoped, his friends would
consider bis death but os a removal from this
to a betterworld. “I have every hope,” said
lie, “ of going direct to the abode of the Great
Spirit, where I shsill always be happy.” This
last remark reached the cars of Ta-zoo, who
was also speaking to his friends, .and he
also elsiboratcd upon it in thiswise: “Yes,
tell our friends that wc arc being removed
from this world over the samopath they must
shortly travel. Wc go first, but many of our
friends may follow us in a very short time.
I expect to go direct to the jabode of the
Great Spirit, and to be happy wbchlget there;
but we are told that the road is long and the
distance great, therefore, as I am stow in all
my movements, it will probably take me a
long lime to reach the end of the journey,
and I should not be. surprised if some of the
young, active men wo will leave behind us
will pass me on the road before I reach the
place of my destination.”
In shaking hands with Red Iron and Akipa,
Ta-zoo said: “Friends, last summer you were
opposed to us. You were living In continal
apprehension of on attack from those who
were determined to exterminate the whites.
Yourselves and families were subjected to
ninny taunts, insults and threats. Still you
stood firm in your friendship for the whites,
and continually counselled the Indians to
abandon tbeir raid against the whites. Your
course was condemned at the time, but now
vou see your wisdom. You were right when
vousald the whites could not be exterminated,
and the attempt indicated folly, you and your
families were prisoners, and the Jives
of all in danger. To-day you are hero at
liberty, assisting in feeding and guarding us,
and thirty-nine men will die in two days be
cause they did not follow your example and
advice.”
Several of the 'prisoners were completely
overcome during lUc Icavo-lnkinp - , and were
compelled to ahbudon conversation. Others
again (and Tazoo was one) affected to d-firc
»-.ird the .dangers of their position, ana
Htighed and joked apparently as unconcerned
as If they were sitting around ft camp fire iu.
perfect freedom.
RESPITE.
A special order was received by Col. Miller,'
night before last, from the President, post
poning the execution of Ta-ti-ma-ma, reduc
ing the nmuber-to be e teeuled to thirty-eight.-
There arc serious doubts among those bc?t
acquainted with the subject, whether he was
guilty of any murder, and the belief .has been
strengthened by new evidence coming out
dsdly. Hence an inter ist has been awakened
in his behalf, and a respite from the President
is the result.
THURSDAY NIGHT.
MIDNIGHT bCENU IN THE CELL OF THE CON-
DEMNED.
Late on Thursday night, in company with
Lieutenant Colonel Marshall, wc visited the
building occupied by the doomed Indians.
They were quartered on the ground floor of
the three-story stone building erected by the
late Gen. Lccch.
They were all fastened to the floor by
chains, two by two. Some were sitting up,
smoking and conversing, while others were
reclining, covered with blankets, and appa
rently asleep. The three half-breeds and one
or two ethers only, were dressed in citizens’
clothes. The rest all wore the breech-clout,
kggins and blankets, and not a few were
aaomed with paint.” The majority of them
ore young men, though several are quite old
and’ gray-headed, ranging perhaps towards
seventy. One is quite a youth—not over six
teen. They all appeared cheerful and con
tented, and scarcely to reflect on the certain
doom which awaited them. As we gazed on
them, the reflection of how short a tmiesince
they had been engaged in the diabolical work
of murdering indiscriminately both old and
young/ sparing neither sex norconditiou, sent
a thrill of horror over onr veins. Now they
are perfectly harmless, and look as Innocent
as children. They smile at your entrance and
hold out their hands to be shaken, which yet
appear to he gory with the blood of babes.
Oh, treachery, thy name is Dakota,
Father Ravoux spent the whole nightamong
the doomed ones, talking with them concern
ing their fate, and endeavoring to impress
upon them a serious view of the subject. He
met with some success, and’during the night
several were baptized, and received the com
munion of the church.
THE FATAL FRIDAY.
At daylight, wc were again there. That
pood man. Father Ravonx, was still with
them, also Rev. Dr.‘Williamson; and when
ever either of these worthy men addressed
them, they were listened to with marked at
tention. The doomed ones wished it to be
known among their friends, and particularly
their wives nnd children, how cheerful and
happy they all bad died, exhibiting no fear
of this dread event. To us it appeared not
as an evidence of Christian faith, but a
steadfast adherence to their heathen supersti
tions.
They shook hands with the officers who
came in among them, bidding them good-bye,
as if they were going on a long and pleasant
journey. They had added some fresh streaks
of vennlllion and ultramarine oftheir counte
nances, as their fancy suggested, evidently in
tending to «ix themselves off as gay as possble
f, >r ihe coming exhibition. They commenced
singing their death-song, Ta-zoo leading, and
neatly all joining. We had never heard this
song, and e.mld not now tell it from the war
Ceng, bnl it was wonderfully exciting,
VRETAIUTIONS FOB THE GALLOWS DEATH
SONG CONTINUED.
At halt past seven all persons were excluded
from the room, except those necessary to
help prepare, the prisoners for their doom.
Under (he superintendence of Major Brown
and Capt. Kcdfleld, their irons were kuocked
off, auk one by one were tied by cords, their
elbows being pinioned behind and the wrists
in front, but about six inches apart. This
operation occupied till about 9 o’clock. In
the meantime the -scene was much enlivensd
by their songs aud conversation, keeping up
the most cheerful appearance.
As they were being pinioned, they went
round the room shaking hands with the sol
diers and reporters, bidding them “good-by,”
dec. White Dog requested not to be tied, and
Mild that he could keep his hands down; but
of course his request could not he complied
with. He said that Little Crow, Young Six
and Big Eagle’s brother got them into this
war, and now he and others are to die for it.
After all were properly fastened, they stood
up in a row* around the room, and another ex
citing death-song was sung. ’They then sat
down very quietly, ami commenced smoking
again. Father Kavoux came in and after ad
dressing them a few moments,knelt in prayer,
reading from a prayer-book in the Dakota lan
guage, which a portion of the condemned re
peated after him. During this ceremony,near
ly ajl paid {he most siilct attention, and sev
eral were affected even to tears. He then ad
dressed them again, first in Dakota, then in
French, which was interpreted by Baptiste
Campbell, one of the coudemned hall-breeds.
The caps were then put on their heads.
These were made of white muslin taken from
the Indians when their camps were captured,
aud which had formed part of the spoils they
had taken from the murdered traders. They
were made long and looked like a meal sack,
but being rolled up only came down to the
forehead, aud allowed their painted faces yet
to he seen.
They received these evidences of their near
approach to death with evident dislike. When
it hud been adjusted on one or two, they
looked around on the others who had not yet
received it. with an oppeanmoo of cl,il Vie.
cnains and cords had not moved them—tjfcir
wear was not considered dishonorable—^out.
this covering of the head with a white cap,
was humiliating. There was no more singing
and but little conversation and smoking now.
All eat around the room; most of them in a
crouched position awaiting their doom, in
silence, or listening to the remarks of Fattier
Ravoux, who still addressed them. Once in a
while they brought their small looking-glass
es before their faces, to see that their countc
nances yet preserved the proper modicum of
paint. *The three half-breeds were tbc most
of nil affected, and their dejection of counte
nance was truly pitiful to behold.
THE PROCESSION TO THE GALLOWS—THE FINAL
SCENE- —THE LAST HEATH SONG.
At precisely 10 o’clock the condemned were
marshaled in a procession, and headed by
Capt. Rcdfield, marched out into the street,
and directly across through files of soldiers to
the scaffold which had been erected In front,
and were delivered to the officer of the day,
.Capt. Burt. They went eagerly and cheerfully,
even crowding and jostling each other to be
ahead, just like a lot of rush*
ingto dinner In a hotel. The soldiers who
were on guard in their quarters stacked arms
.and followed them, and they in tarn were fol
lowed by the clergy, reporters, &c.
As they commenced the ascent of the scaf
fold, the death song was again started, and
when they, had all got up, the noise they made
was truly hideous. It seemed as if pandemo
nium had broken loose. It had a wonderful
effect iukeepinguptheircourage. Oneyoung
fellow, who had heen given a cigar by one oT
the reporters, just before nmrclilng from their
quarters, was smoking it on the stand, puffing
away very coolly during the Intervals of the
hideous “Di-vi-yi,” “ Iti-yi yi.” and even af
ter the cap was drawn over Ids face, he man
aged to get it np over his mouth and smoke.
Another was smoking his pipe. The noose
having been promptlyadjusted overthc necks
of each, by Opt. Libby, all was ready for the
fatal signal.
AN ODD AND DISGUSTING INCIDENT.
The solemnity of the scene was here dis
turbed by an incident which if it were not in
tensely disgusting might becitedas a remark
able evidence of the contempt of death which
is the traditional characteristic of the Indian.
Otfe of the Indians whose name we did not
ascertain, in the rhapsody of his death song
conceived an insult to the spectators which it
required an Indian to conceive and a dirty
dog of an Indian to execute.
The refrain of his song was to the effect,
that if a body was found near New Dim with
his head cut off and placed in a certain indeli
cate part of the body, “It Is me,’* be sung,
“it is me,”—and suited the action to the
word by an indecent exposure of hU person in
hideous mockery of the triumph of that jus
tice whose sword was already falling on his
head. This monstrous exhibition, at such a
moment, may at least be regarded as a just
penalty for the morbid curiosity which drew
so many women from their homes to mingle
in the mass of spectators at the foot of the
gallows.
TUB AWFUL FINALS.
TJiC scene at this juncture was one of awful
interest. A painful and breathless suspense
held the vast crowd which had assembled
from all quarters to witness the execution.
Three slow, measured and distinct beats on
the dram by Major Brown, who bad been an
nounced as signal officer, and the rope was
cut by Mr. Duly—the scaffold fell, aud thirty
seven lifeless bodies were left dangling be
tween heaven and earth. One of tnc ropes
was broken, and the body of Rattling Runner
fell to the ground. The neck had probably
been broken, ns but little signs of life were
observed, but he was immediately hung up
again. While the signal beat was being tnven,
numbers were seen to clasp the hands of their
neighbors, which in several Instance contin
ued to be clasped till the bodies were cut
down.
As the platform fell, there was one, not
loud, but prolonged cheer from the soldiery
aud citizens who were spectators, and then
all were quiet and earnest witnesses of the
scene. For so many, there was but little
suffering: the necks of all, or nearly all, were
evidently dislocated by the fill, and the after
struggling was slight. The scaffold fell at
a quarter past ten o’clock, and in twenty
minutes the bodies had all been examined by
Surgeons Lc Bputillier, Sheardown, Finch,
Clark and others, and life pronounced ex
tinct.
The bodies were then cut down, placed in
four army wagons, and attended by company
K, as a bnriarparty, and under the couuuant i
of Lieut. Col. Marshall, were'taken to the
grave prepared for them among the willows
on the sand bar nearly in front of the town.
They were all deposited in one grave, thirty
feet in length by twelve in width, and four
feet deep, being laid on the bottom in two
rows, with their feet together and their heads
to the outside. They were simply qovered
with their blankets and the earth thrown over
them.
THE OTHER CONDEMNED INDIANS
Were kept close in their quarters, where they
were chained and not permitted to witness
the executions. During the awful moments,
when they heard the death songs of their com
panions in guilt, they crouched themselves
down with their blankets over their heads,
and remained in perfect silence. They were
much dejected all day. Some few squaws
witnessed the scene.
. THE’ARRANGEMENT -
For the execution of so many persons at the
same instant was most pcncct, and great
credit is due Col. Miller for devising and car
rying out so successfully, his well digested
plan. Neither can too much credit be given
to Capt. Burt, the Officer of the Day, Lieut,
Col. Marshall, Major Brown, and Capt. Red
field, Provost Marshak
TUB CROWD.
All day and night on Thursday, and on the
morning of Friday, up to the time of the esc-
cation, people were constantly arriving to
witness the banging. Troaps were constantly'
coming in from oil points and tbs streets
were densely crowded. Tins roofs and win
dows of all Buildings In the vicinity, and all
other eligible places, were early occupied by
anxious spectators, including the sand bar in
the river and the opposit s bank. All was
quiet and orderly. Owing to the strict en
forcement of martial law, not a single case of
drunkenness or disorderly conduct occurred,
and after the bodies had been cut down, they
began to return from the scene, many leaving
. town immediately. All expressed themselves
oe satisfied that the execution was being car
ried out, and there were no threats or appa
rent wishes to execute summary vengeance on
the others.

CONSTITUTION
WATER
TEE GREAT REMEDY
FOR THE
CONSTITUTION,
AND THE
OSLY ENOWN KEMEDT
FOR
DIABETES,
and diseases of the
KIDNEYS AND BLADDER.
These Dangerous and Troublesome
Diseases. tTlilch. have thus farßo
slsted ibe best Directed Treat*
xzxent, can be completely con*
trolled by the Remedy
now before ns!
THE CURATIVE
properties of the medicine direct themselves to
the organs of secretion, and by so altering the con
dition of the stomach and liver that the starchy
principle of the food is not converted into sugar so
long as the system is under the influence of the
CONSTITUTION WATER,
which gives those organa time to recover their
healthy tone and vigor. Wc arc abio to state that
the Constitution W ster has cared every case of Dl
abetls in which it has been given.
STONE IN THE BLADDER. CALCULUS,
GRAVEL. BRICK DUST DEPOSIT
AND MUCUS OR MILKY DIS
CHARGES AFTER URI
NATING.
Diseases occurring from one and the same cause
will be entirely cur«l by the Constitution Water,
If taken for any length of time. The dose shonld
vary with the seventy of the disease, from twenty
drops to a teaspoonful three times a day. In water.
Dunug the passage of the Calculus, the pain and
urgent symptoms, should he combatted with the
proper remedies, then followed up with the Con
stitution Water, as above directed.
DTSMENORRHCEA. OK PAINFUL MENSTRU
ATION, AND IN MENORRHAGIA OR
PROFUSE FLOWING.
Both diseases arising from a Canity secretion oftbc
menstrual fluid—in the one case being too little,
and accompanied by severe pain: and the other a
too profuse secretion, which will be speedily cored
by the Confitttatlon Water. „
That disease known as FALLING OF THE
WfTMTI, which is the result of a relaxation of the
ligaments of that organ, and is known by a sense
of heaviness and dragging pains in the hack ami
sides, and at times accompanied by sharp lacinat
ing or shooting pains through the parts, will. In
all cases, be removed bv the medicine.
There is another class of symptoms arising from
IRRITATION OF THE WOMB, which physicians
call Nervousness, which word covers op much Ig
norance, and In nine cases out of ten the doctor
docs not really know whether the symptoms are
the disease, or the disease the symptoms. We can
only enumerate them here. I speak more particu
larly of Cold Feet. Palpitation of the Heart. Im
paired Memory. Wakefulness, Flashes of Heat,
Languor. Lassitude and Dimness of Vision.
SUPPRESSED MENSTRUATION.
Which in the unmarried female is a constant re
curring disease, aud through neglect the seeds of
more grave and dangerous maladies are the result;
and as month after month passes without an cflon
being made to assist nature, the suppression be
comes chronic, the patient gradually loioa her ap
petite, the bowels are constipated, night sweats
come on. and consumption finally ends her career.
LUECORRHtEA, OR WHITES.
Tills disease depend? upon an inflammation of
mucous lining of the vagina and womb. It Is in
all cases accompanied by severe pain in the back,
across the bowels and through the hips. A tea
spoonful of the medicine may be taken three times
a day, with on injection of a tea-spoonful of the
medicine, mixed with a half pint of soft water,
morning and evening. ,
IRRITATION OF THE NECK OF THE BLADDER,
INFLAMMATION OF THE KIDNEYS. AND
CATAAKH OP THE lILAODKB,
STRANGURY AND BURNING,
OK PAINFUL URIN
ATING.
For these diseases It Is truly a sovereign remedy, and
too much cannot be said In its praise. A single dose
has been known to relieve most urgent symptoms.
Are yon troubled with that distressing pain In the
small of the back and through tbc bins ? A tcaipoonfnl
a day of Constitutional Water will relieve yon like
manic.
FW DYSPEPSIA,
It has no equal in relieving the most distressing symp
tom*. Also Headache, Heartburn, Add. Stomach. Vo.u-
Ring Food, Ac. Take a leaspoonfnl alter dinner. The
dose In nil cases may be increased if desired, bat
should he done gradually.
PHYSICIANS
Have long since given up the nse of bneba. enbebi.
andjunipcrsln the treatment of these diseases, and
only use them for want of abetter remedy.

THESE ARE FACTS ENOUGH.
There Is no class of diseases that produce such ex

P«fS2Kf*, and through a false modesty they are neg
lected until they are so advanced as to be beyond the
control of ordinary remedies, and we present the
CONSTITUTION WATER
„To the public with the conviction that It has no equal
in relieving the class of diseases of which It has been
found so eminently successful In eurlnir: and we trust
that we shall be rewarded for our efforts In placing so
valuable a remedy is a form to meet the requirements
of patient and physician.
