Mr. li. Ji. Stevens :
Dear :iir?l wish to g'/*: you this testimony,
that you may know, and kl others know, what
Vegetine lias dorm for mo. About two years
iiijor final I sore eamo 011 my log; it soon became
a large ulcer, so troublesome that 1 consulted
the dec'.cr, but I got no relief, growing
woraa from day to day. I sudered terribly; J. I
"/i"' ^ - - - * 'i. ] \c7A3 ?5o reduced.
I IUU1U u:b uaj w
my Iriouds thought I would r.ever recover; I
consulte 1 r. doctor at Oolumbu*. I followed his
advice; it did'"o good. loan truly say I was
discouraged. At ill's ii i.o 1 ws? looking 07er
my newspaper; 1 saw * Ivmrlisement cf
Vegeline, th(5 ' Great !>' od I'unlijr" for cleansing
tbo blood Iro'tt 1 ipuritica, curing Humors,
Ulcers &e. i s.-.id to my family, 1 will
try some of the Vegolino. Before 1 had used
the first bottle I began to feel hotter. I made
up my mind I had got U13 right medieino at last.
I could new sleep well at nights. I continued
taking tho Vcgotinc. I took thirtoen bottle3.
My health is gocd. Tho ulcor is gone, and I am
able to attend to business. I paid about four
hundred dollars for medicine and doctors before
I bought the Vogctine. i have recommended
Vegolino to others with good success. I always
keep a bottle of it in tho house now. It is
a most excellent medicine.
Very rospectfully yours,

H as Mercedes Poisoned.
Poor little Queen Meroedes of Spain ! O/er
her grave are uttered many lamentations for
"(ho donbly dead ia that she died so young;"
lamentations Dot so much because she was a
princess?though, doubtless, with many that
fact would lend moch obarm?as brcauic (he
royal Spanish marriage had been a genuine
love match, and because in (hose tivo short
1 ' ii
months she baa won goiuen opinmm imm
sorts of people.
It is startltog, however, to.do it opooly stated
io print that suspicions of foul play arc rile,
and that oven the name of the person who administered
tiio dm* has been mentioned.?
There were, it h true, other reasons why she
should have been out of health; but latterly
the symptoms had been clearly thoso of arsouical
poisoning. The poor youog girl, who passed
her eighteenth birthday on her sick bed,
had, it is said, a terror ol tho near approach of
death, and earnestly implored the phydaians
around her to save her life. The last struggle
was Ion* and violent.
Happily her mother, who for someiinn
past had been exceedingly uncomfortable
about Mercedes, and was but too well
aware of Lho ir.itnical influences surroundio*
Alfonso's wife, yet was herself debarred
from residence in Spaio, was with the little
(laeen ere the end. it is thought tho Duke
ot MoDtpeDhior oppcsul the embalming of his
daughter's body, because, should a postmortem
examination of tho remains be at any time
determined on, tho "GaDual" process, whose
chief ingredient is arsenic, would render irn
posHble tho detection of other poison.
Not long bei'cro this fatal illoess a disgrae;
fill rquahble over tho royal jewels, valued at
tS,Oi?i,uOO franc..-', had brokeu out between the
voting king and his mother. AIIouho, who
really wanted them for Mercedes, claimud the
goms as orowo property, hot Ijabulla, like the
obstinate woman sho is, held Htoutly to them,
utterly declining to give them up unless ho
would huv Ihciu at thc-ir fuii value.
What trouble the royal baubles of Spain seem
lately to have created among tho actual possessors
of, or t be numerous pretendois to that most
uneasy seat, the Spanish throne ! On her sou's
refusal to becocaa a purchaser of what he ooo
f-idercd by right his own property, Isabella next
tried to get rid of the jewels at public auctioi.;
whereupon Alfonso retaliated by takiog legal
proceedings to prevent their sale. This undig
nifk'd fucd was af its height wfinn death came

Mr. Ucoige litilsfrode, ol Walla Wnha,
bought n luadsomo lion cub from a monagerio
that was s >!d out by tho sheriff near that place,
as menageries frequently are, and soon had the
:mb!rm of royalty quite domesticated. He
. ailed it Aziriah Iv. I?.)o?ly, filter a particular
kit-ad of his, ami took great interest in its kit
Leui-h gambols.
1 lo was often remonstrated with for koepiog
a pot that might in timo become dangerous,but
invariably replied that ho. loved animals, and
that ho know what he wan about. Whon the
creature had grown to be about as big as a boardine;
house sola, Mr. LJulstrodo name home one
day and found Aziriah had just eaten lip the
household aunt. Ilulslrodo gavo the lion a
good fcratchiug and tied it up short for three
weeks'. When implored by his wife to shout
the beast, he remarked that the poor thing
wa" only obeying tlio instincts of his nature;
and, furthermore, that ho (Bufsirode) know
what lie was about.
A few months after that he cime home
again only to behold Aziriah in the aet of
finishing his wife, and a peculiar bu'go on the
left hand si to of the animal's stomach coo
vinoed him that the intelligent king of beus!*
and started in by swallowing little Tommy,
their only offspring, top and all. The neigh
bors theo clamored for the instant destruction
of the beast, but his owner threw his aron
around the animal's neck and insisted that,
they should only harm him over his own dead
body. Maoy persons would havo yielded to
the pressure of public prejudice, but our disci
pie of Jiergli, instead, packed up his valise,
pinned his Prevention of Cruelty to Animah
iSccicty medal on his breast, and taking the
chain of his family sarcophagus in his hand,
started cut to begin life on a new basis, as it
were.
