The Officers and References are gentle men of well-known business and profes sional standing and reputation. The Object of the Association is: Ist. To secure to its members or their heirs a sum of money at a time when it is most needed. 2d. To insure such benefits at the lowest cost. Reliability. The principles on which the Society is founded are as old as history; the funds arc held by the members themselves until needed to pay dues and benefits. MeiuberHlllp.—Any person, Mule or Female, in good health, between Hie ages of 20 and 05 years, may become mem bers of the Association. Practical Working.— The mem bers agree to pay annual dues (for current expenses,) and assessments, ns rated, until such assessments shall exceed the amount required to pay a certificate in lull; when they will be assessed only such a pro-rata proportion ns may be necessary to make up the sum needed. To pay a certificate all the members will bo assessed, at rated m the Tables, and cannot be assessed for more. Exuiiiplc.—Take an assessment on a Cerliflct to of $1,250; all who hold Certi ficates for that amount will be assessed as ruled according to their ages. As for in stance ; persons from 30 to 40 would lie assessed one dollar. Certificates of $2,500 would be assessed to meet a loss of $1,”50, onc-balf the amount ns rated; and Certifi cates for $5,000, one-fourth their rated as sessment. Thus the plan is purely mutual and strictly equitable. Permanent Disability.-In case member should become permanently dis abled, fifty p<r cent, of the value of their Certificates will lie paid to them then, fifty per cent, more at maturity of years; or to their heirs at death. This is manifestly a most benevolent and desirable provision. Maturity of Years.— Members who live to their years of expectancy, will ho paid in their life time the amount of their Certificate, (old age in a majority of cases is a lime of most need.) Example.— Take a person of 40 years of age at tha time oi joining, their expectation of life, us per the Carlisle Tables, is 27 years. Should such a person live to be (57 years of ago, he or she would then receive, in, cash (in their life-time) the amount of their Certificate. Special Features.— The perma nent disability provision and the payment to living members of matured Ceitiflcalcs, render membership in this Association wore dtitrab’c lluu in Societies that pay benefits in cases oi death only. W'iiw are Specially Interest ed.—Every member lias a personal in terest in the growth and wuiiare of the Society, and should bo active in inducing others to become members, as the larger Hie amount of certificates in force the ic f s will he Hie assessments, and the greater the value of the Certificates.

J&Urt The Jilted Star. 1 was Hitting alono in the gloaming. Gazing into a quiet aky ; My thoughte were tired of roaming^ Ah weary and tired an I, When ail at once in the aky abore Shone a ntar of radiant light, And then it waa in love that I fell With thin atar, ao atrangely bright I know ’twaa a world m*ny milea away, Far greater and fairer than thin, But I watched for ite coming at clow of day And always throw it a kiaa. To my tired aolf it became a friend. Bringing reat before unknown; lia tender radiance aoemed to bload In my heart and make jno ita own. But alaa I too aoon I grew weary Of ita cold, diapaa'nonate faoa, And a little mortal pang In my hourt crept into ita place. And when at the cloao of day, With my now love at my aide, We talked in voices gay, And ahe promiaod lo be my bride. But that night, when the world was aleepinq The ram in torreuta fell, And 1 thought could my atur bo weeping For the false one ahe loved ao well ? The star looked down from above As wo atoo;l there talking together, And I thought of the change in my love, And ahe of the change in the weather. LOVE AND HUNTING. “ Please, sir, are these for you?” It was my man who spoke, and as he did so he held up for inspection an im maculate pair of “tops” in one hand and a pair of painfully new breeches in the other, while bis countenance wore an expression ot mingled fear and astonishment. With an inward sinking at my heart I turned from my morning paper and cutlet, and having nodded a gloomy assent to his query, said: "That will do, James ; lay them on the sofa.” The above conversation took place in my bachelor apartments in the Albany, and the reason for tho appearance there in of the aforesaid tops and breeches I am about to explain. lam not a hunt ing man. I never could see any joke in bumping about on a hard piece of a pigskin in pursuit oi a draggled piece of vermon called a fox, although some people say the fox enjoys the fun. It is all very well tor those who like it; and Mr. Jorricks, ot immortal memory, may call hunting “the sport of things —tho imago of war without its guilt and only twenty-five percent, of its danger," if ho likes, hut I confess I can’t see it in that light. It was with feelings the reverse of pleasant, therefore, that I re ceived and accepted an invitation from Sir Harry Bullfinch to stay a week in his “box" in Warwickshire, and avail myself of his .hospitality and a mount with the renown pack which hunted that country. I was urged to this ac ceptance of what in my saner momenta I should have indignantly treated as a practical joke by a slight attack of the master passion. I met Sir Harry and his daughter, Kate, in London, daring the past season. We had frequently mot at variously balls and entertain ments, and on several occasions had enjoyed the balmy fragrance of Bushy park and the still delights of a boat on the upper readies of the Thames, but with my natural timidity I had never ventured to ask tho question which was forever on the tip of my tongue, but never got further. The invitation ap peared to hold out promises of quiet tete a-tetos, so I electrified my tailer and bootmaker with orders for the necessary “ togs ” with which to carry on tho campaign. I remember having somewhere heard or read that in order to acquire an easy and graceful seat on horseback, sitting astride on a chair and holding on by the back was excellent practice, so, having called James and given him most ex press instruction to deny me even to my most intimate friends, I proceeded to struggle into perhaps the tightest pair of cords that were ever made for mortal man, and, with tho aid of a brandy and soda and a conple of boot books, to pull on a pair of boots which nearly gave mo a fit of apoplexy and made my corns burn for hours. Armed with a cutting whip, I titen mounted astride the strongest chair in the apart ment, and continued the exhilarating exercise with the firmness ol a stoic and a martyr, and with only one interval for luncheon, throughout the entire day. My train left the Great Northern station at 4:30, and landed me safely at my destination. In due course I found myself seated next to the fair Kate, with my legs comfortably otrptohed under Sir Harry’s mahogany. “T suppose our dull country pack will seem quite a second rate to you.” said Kate. I was murmuring something ip re lv. when Sir Harry opt in with: " Ah I I’ve got a splendid mount for ■•a to-morrow, ray boy 1 A trifle play- H, perhaps—hasn’t been hunted yet this season, but will carry you like a bird." •• on, yes," said Kate. “Czar is such a nice creature." “ Indeed I” said I. “I am rejoiced to hear it. Of course you accompany us to the meat T “Tea,” she replied, "and papa has ■aid that as you are going out I might sren follow the hounds a little way. You’ll look after me, won’t you, Mr. De Boots V I promised to do my devoirs, but in my heart of hearts thought I should re quire some one to look after mo. The following morning at breakfast, which was early on account of our hav ing to go some distance to the meet, tho horses w;re brousrht round— sturdy, thick-set, quiet-looking weight carrier, a neat-looking gray mare, and a bright, fidgety chestnut. Tho latter gave his attendant groom some trouble, and insisted on waltzing around on hia hind legs a good deal more than ap peared to me to be necessary. “ l am afraid your papa will find that animal rather troublsome," I remarked to Kate. “ That,” she answered, “ oh, that’s not. papa’s—that's the one you are going to ride—Czar." My appetite left me, and as I rose and walked, in as unconcerned manner as I could assume to the window, I saw that the Czar had reversed tho order of things by putting his head between his 1 forelegs and lashing out with his heels in a very vicious-looking and anything but “playful" manner. A general move was now made to the front door. Kate looked at mo and evidently expected mo to “ put her up," but I knew better than to attempt it, and pretended to be intent on buckling , a strap of the pair of spurs Sir Harry had lent ma, until she was safe in the 1 saddle. Czar was then brought up for me to mount, which, after several ahor , tive attempts on my part, I effected, and , we all jogged on toward the meet. Con trary to my expectation Czar behaved . in a most exemplary manner, and I even I ventured to swing my whip with a , iaunty air without his taking tho alight j est notice. But it was too good to last. Presently a red coat popped ont on ns from a by-lane, and the CzarV ears began to twitch, Two or throe more horsemen overtook us, and his tail began to describe circles, and he proceeded on his way with a crab-like , movement, which was anything hnt ele ! gant and eminently disconcerting. ! Almost before I could realize tho po | sition, a stern voice shouted: “Now, you sir, mind the hounds, will you ?” and a . muttered oath, accompanied by an ex pression which sounded very much like j “ tailor,” drew my attention to the fact that we had arrived in a field by the , side of a wood, in which was gathered . some seventy or eighty horsemen and ' a pack of hounds. Luckily for myself, and also for the hounds, on whom Czar seemed to think it great fun to dance, the master at this moment gave tne sig ! nal to “throw off.” It nearly came being prophetic in my case. In less ' time than it takes to write, a fox was started. I lost my hat and my head at one and the same moment, and nearly t my seat, and tne next thing that I re ( member with any degree of distinot- I ness is clinging with the blind energy , of a drowning man to the pommel of ! the saddle, and regarding with despair a huge fence which seemed to approach I me at a terrific rate. There was a sud , den rush, a tremendous spring—l seem ( to have left the lower part of my waist - ; coat and its contents on the other side . of the obstacle—and, with a jolt which , pitched me somewhere in the vicinity \ of Czar’s ears, we were over. The field wo lauded in was a stifflsh ; fallow, but Czar still “ urged on his • wild career” with unabated speed. I , shook back into the saddle, and a pass . ing regret that I had neglected to insure my life against accidents flitted through 1 my mind. I continued to cling to the r pommel, and in this manner we nego . tiated three more fences, and got into , a quiet lane, when, much to my aston , ishment Czar stopped dead short. We had, to my sincere delight, lost the , hounds I I patted Czar gently on the | neck, and quickly dismounting, led . him slow y down tho lane. Wo bad not . proceeded far when I discerned a coun j try lad coming toward mo, carrying in , his hand my lost hat, which had been , battered out of all shape by a horse’s [ hoof. 1 recovered the (ost headgear 1 climbgd hank into the saddle intending 1 to walk Ozftr quietly homeward, when I could discover in what direction home ; was. But as ill-luck would have it, at 1 that precise moment tho sound of a horn i was heard far off in the distance. Czar > pricked up his ears and gave a sudden start, and on my attempting to check 1 him, reared straight on end, while I ' lovingly clasped him round the neck * with both arms, and with o.go plunged 1 forward and upward we left that lane and that country youth forever. We landed in a pasture, and were going at j a fearful pace up a slight incline. Ar rived at the top, the hunt was to bo soen coming down the valley. And now Czar would take no denial. Rushing down the slope at a speed to which all former exertions of his had been as mere child’s play, flew over a double post and rails, and I found my self a good field in front of the fore- most lliglit ol horsemen and close on to the hounds I still onward I until loom ing in the distance appeared a strag gling line of stunted willows, which, even to my initiated vision, meant “ water." Splash I there goes the fox! Splash I splash I there go the hounds! 1 hear voices shouting be hind me as it in warning, but ail 1 can do is to hold on and trust in I’r.ivi lencc. Our pace, if possible, ivn eases, and with a sort of idea of goinq up in a balloon, Czar and myself scorned sus pended in the air miles above the brook. It seems ages before wo come down again, which wo do with a jerk that would have unseated mo had it not been for Czar suddenly springing for ward and shaking mo back to my proper place. We rush on to where the hounds seem to bo scrambling for something and quarreling amongst themselves-- they have run into the fox and Czar comes to a standstill just outside the worrring pack. Up comes the first whip and flogs j them off their prey, and I see Sir Harry advancing toward me, rod in the faco and violently gesticulating with his heavy hunting crop. What have I done? Have I unconsciously infringed some point in hunting etiquette or have 1 hurt Czar? Neither the one or the other. Sir Harry, hastily flinging him self off his steaming horse, comes up to me and seizing me by the hand nearly wrings my arms off and bursts out with: “ Well done, my boy! You rascal, yon! You’ve 1 pounded ’ the whole of us. Never saw such .going in all my life. Don’t believe there’s another man in the field thr ’; could have done it. Here, Lord George”—to tho noble master who at that moment rude up—“ permit me to introduce my friend, Mr. De Boots.” “Delighted to make your acquaint ance, air,” says his lordship, shaking me heartily by the hand. “I trust to be able to show you some good sport if yon are thinking of remaining in ont country, though if you do we shall all have to look to our laurels, for you went like a bird, sir." While he is speaking several gentle men ride up, to all of whom I am in troduced, and all of whom praise what they are pleased to call my “ plucky riding.” Miss Kate comes up as tho last obse quies are being performed, and on the huntsman, obedient to a nod from his lordship, who is no lover of women in the hunting field, presenting me with the brush, I handed it to her with all the grace compatible with mud-stained habiliments, and a crushed and bat tered hat. We rode home together—Sir Harry and an old crony of his riding some dis tance in the roar. Czar was complacent and had apparently had quite enough, at any rate, for that day; so thinking that I might never have another such opportunity, I gently took Kate’s whip hand and ventured to put that question which had been so long on the tip ol my tongue. Her answer was a whisper “Yes;” but suddenly turning to me she added: “ On one condition." “ Name it, dearest,” I replied. “ You are so rash and daring that you must promise me never to hunt after we are married 1" Need I say how readily I gave the re quired pledge, and how faithfully I kept it? A WONDERFUL SUCCESS flf BUSINESS A few years ago the Shaker Commu nity of Mount Lebanon, N. Y., met with a serious loss by fire. Nearly all of their large workshops were destroy ed and one of their largest dwellings as well, involving a loss of nearly a m’lhon of dollars. The Shakers felt very much distressed, for they had no insurance. The fire had destroyed their large warehouses, together with their stock of herbs, plants and roots, by the sale of which they were en abled to support their large commu nity. They felt then that their bus iness was gone from them. While the Brothers and Sisters wore mourning over their great and serious loss and wondering how they were to be pro vided for in the future, one of their Trustees, Benjamin Gates, entered in ; to an arrangement with a party in 1 New York City to undertake the sale i 0 f an article upon which the Shakers . had spent much study and labor to I bring to perfection, but which up to ■ that time was comparatively but 1 little known. ! With but little capital the enter l prise was atari ed, but the real merit _ that the article possessed gave the i new business a standing almost at once, for everywhere it was intro - duced the article became a staple i commodity. Indeed, the fame of the 1 Shakers spread like the flames on a 1 burning prairis, and this, too, without the usual puffing and advertising that is beatowe 1 upon nearly all new pro jects. The mode of conducting the business waa a new and novel one, worthy of imitation by those who possess goods that will stand upon their actual merits. This successful business plan was as follows: The general agent advertsed for local agents all over the land, requiring no evidence of wealth nor any security; a simple .certificate of good character was sufficient to obtain an agency. These agents were employed to place iheir article in the bands of the public on approval, asking for no pay with out full satisfaction was expressed by tho parties receiving it. Most people would think that such a course would have resulted in disaster, but the Shakers, believing that the mass ol mankind are honest, were willing to place (heir fortunes in the hands of the people, relying solely upon their word of honor to pay for the article when approved. The sequel shows that his confidence was not misplaced, for the business has grown to enormous proportions, bsyond all t xpeetationa. The sale of the article has spread like magic, not confined to this country alone; the fame of the article has spread over to Europe. In London alone over fifteen million packages have been sold. From Lon don the article has been sent all over the world, even to India, Australia, Japan, etc., while it is claimed that this enormous business has been built up without the usual puffing and advertising, there baa been a certain kind of advertising, but of a peculiar character. This business has been established by one party telling another until the fame of the article has spread all over the land and thou sands upon thousands are singing songs of praise of the virtues of the article. The wonder has been how such a large trade could he built up in the sale of an article recommended as a cure for one disease only. This waa indeed the secret of the great success, because it was recommended but for one disease, Dyspepsia. Had it been put on the market as a cure fer all, failure would have followed certain and sure, because the absurdity of recommending one remedy for all diseases is too apparent for this en lightened age. But this article possessed real merit and wherever it went it made hosts of friends. An other wonder waa that the sale of a remedy for one single disease could have commanded such large propor tions; hut when we reflect that Indi gestion is the cause of nearly all our ailments it will not be so surprising. The fact is that most cases of so called Malaria, Liver Complaint, diseases of the Kidneys, etc., are simply aggra vated cases of Dyspepsia—mere symp toms of the real disease; and the reason so many physicians are unsuc cessful in treating this class of com plaints is that the patients are trtatea for the wrong complaint —they are treated for symptoms instead of the distase itself. “The axe laid at the foot of the tree.” The groat success of this ai ticle (the Soakers Extract of Roots) proves the correctness of this theory. No article would meet with such a rapid sale without puffing and adver tising unless it effected cures, and the very fact that this article was designed as a cure for Dyspepsia alone show* that Indigestion or Dyspepsia was the foundation of nearly all these so-called diseases, Only two years since a beautiful young lady was given up to die of consumption. Her fond parents took her to Paris as a lost resort, hoping to find some skillful physician there to arrest the rapid strides of the supposed dreadful disease. In this their hopes were blighfed, but fortunately away in that distant foreign city they met with this Sha kers' remedy from America. The result was that the young lady is alive and well to-day. She did not have consumption; she was a sufferer from Dyspepsia, which is an alarming disease afflicting a numerous class. The disease commences with a slight derangement of the stomach, but if neglected it in time involves the whole frame, embracing the kidneys, liver, pancreas, and in fact the entire glandular system and the afflicted one drags ont a miserable existence until death gives relief from suffer ing. The disease is often mistaken for other complaints, but if the reader will ask himself the following ques tions he will he able to determine whether he himself is one of the Proprietors. WHOLE NUMBER, 513. afflicted: Hava I distress, pain or difficulty in breathing after eating ? Is there a dull, heavy feeling, attend ed by drowsiness? Have the eyes a yellow tinge ? Does a thick, sticky mucus gather about the gums and teeth in the mornings, accompanied by a disagreeable taste? Is the tongue coated 7 Is there pain in the aides and back? Is there a fullness about the right side, as if the liver was enlarging ? Is there costiveness 7 Is there vertigo or dizziness when rising suddenly from a horizontal position 7 Are the accretions from the kidneys scanty and highly color ed with a deposit after standing? Does food ferment soon after eating, accompanied by flatulence or a bel ching of gas from the stock ? Is there frequent palpitation of the heart? These various symptoms may not be present at one time} but they torment the auffoiei in turn as the dreadful disease prcgressas. If the care be one of long standing there will be a dry, hacking cough, attended, after a time, by expectoration. In very ad , vanned stages the skin assumes a dirty brownish appearance, and the hands and feel are covered by a cold, sticky perspiration. As the liver and kid neys become more and more diseased rheumatic pains appear, and the usual treatment proves entirely unavailing against this latter agonizing disorder. It is most important that the disease should ha promptly and properly treated in its first stages, when a lit j tie medicine will effect a cure, and even when it has obtained a strong hold the true remedy should be per severed in until every vestige of the | disease is eradicated, until the appe tite has returned and the digestive organs are restored to a healthy con | dition. This disease is called Liver Complaint and by various othernames, but the real disease is Dyspepsia. The safest and surest remedy for the dis ease is the one we have described, the Shaker Extract of Roots, prepared by the Mount Lebanon Shakers, who j have spent more than fifty years in studying the medicinal preparation of plants and roots.
