Sffll's Tonic Syrup
FOR THE CURE OF
FEVER and AGUE
Or CHILLS and FEVER,
AND ALL MALARIAL DISEASES.
The proprietor of this celebrated medicine
justly claims for it a superiority over all rem
edies ever offered to the public for the SAFE,
CERTAIN, SPEEDY and PERMANENT cure
of Ague and Fever, or Chills and Fever, wheth
er of short or long standing. He refers to the
entire Western and Southern country to bear
him testimony to the truth of the assertion
that in no case whatever will it fail to cure if
the directions are strictly followed and carried
oat. In a great many cases a single dose has
been sufficient for a cure, and whole families
have been oared by a single bottle, with a per
fect restoration of the general health. It is,
hovever, prudent, and in every case more cer
tain to cure, if its use is continued in smallei
doses for a week or two after the disease has
been checked, more especially in difficult and
long-standing cases. Usually this medicine
will not require any aid to keep the bowels in
good order. Should the patient, however, re
quire a cathartic medicine, after having taken
three or four doses of tho Tonic, a singlo dose
of BULL'S VEGETABLE FAMILY PILLS
will be sufficient,

IN A GAP DUX.
There's a garden of my childhood that I only
Fee in dreams.
l'ver sunshine lies upon it, shadows only
passing flit:
Thro' the vista of my memory very fair that
ganlen seems.
And I sometimes yearn with 1 miring once
again to enter it !
f can smr-11 the lawn's first mowing, and the
rich arth freshly turned.
When the spring's warm-fingered touches
woke to life the gardeu beds.
Where the double row of crocus like a golden
pathway burned.
And the tulips in the border waved their
stately crimson heads.
Where the south wail lured the swallows
wheeling up against the blue;
Summer beauty gained upon us ere we
knew the spring Ixjgun:
There the pale wisteria clusters tender arms
of f ragrunee threw
Till the white magnolia lifted cups of silver
to the sun.
Year by year the blooming orchard lay like
snow beneath the moon.
Year by year the chaffinch nested where the
moss-jrrown boughs divide.
And her brood upon the branches twittered
through the dawns of June,
Till the growing apples reddened under
August's smile of pride.
Spring and ever-radiant summer and full
autumn hold it'fast,
Ms- enchanted garden, whither fancy leads
me back to-day ;
Never winter falls upon it, for the pictures of
the past.
Cod be thanked, are happy pictures, and
their skies for ever gay.
Only when across life's highway comes the
scent of country brier.
Or of wafted honeysuckle, westward borne,
and cold with dow;
'Then the longing for my garden fills me with
such strong desire
That my soul is faint within me for the sun
shine that I knew!
O. B. Stuart, in Argosy.
''DIED i;ame."
It is morning on the pi'airie.
To the east is the rosy sunrise and the
dim. far-away outline of a mountain
range; to the north a shadowy line
which may mean hills or timber; to the
west and south a broad, level ocean of
green grass which has no limit. It
Menu as lend as a floor to the eye, but
it is cut up with dry ravines and ditches,
and there are sharp ridges and tlips and
sunken spots.
The sun is warm, the air still, and
every blade of grass is loaded with dia
mond dewdrops. There is no bird to
chirp, and no crickets to call, out but there
is no feeling of loneliness. One who
faces that morning sun and feels the
vastnoss of the prairie is lost in quiet
amazement. There is an awe upon him
akin to that which man feels when he
nea the ocean lashed to mighty fury.
The one is an exhibition of Divine anger
the other of Divine peace.
See! A rough-clad, full-bearded man,
of iron muscle and fearless courage,
suddenly rises from a hollow, tosses
aside his blanket, and slowly turns his
head in every direction to scan the
green grass sea. At the same moment
his horse emerges from a dip which has
heretofore sheltered him, and, with a
whinny of recognition and pleasure, ad
vances straight upon his master.
Alone! Man and horse are the only
living creatures in sight. They are as
much lost to. the world as two grains of
sand washing to and fro in the Atlantic.
The muster's hand steals up until it
rests upon tho horse's neck, and the
faithful animal crowds a bit nearer.
Both are awed by the broad expanse.
The mighty grandeur of Nature steals
in upon the man's soul, and it seems to
pass like an electric current to the horse.
He raises his head. His nostrils ex
pand. His eyes grow clearer and larger.
Surely he must see the pictures spread
out before him there; anil something of
its beauty must be felt.
See that! The man's hand goes up
to shade his eyes. He is looking
straight to the west. He stands like a
rock, and his eyes are keen as an
eagle's. Tho horse is looking in the
same direction, ears pricked forward,
lips quivering and every muscle in his
legs tightened up as if for a race. What
is it? A flutter on the surf ace of the
prairie caught the man's eye for an in
stant and then disappeared. It is
two miles away. It was only a trifle;
but on that trifle depends his life. A
shipwrecked sailor catches his breath
at sight of every white cloud creeping
above the water line. The hunter on
the prairie feels bis heart pound at the
flutter of a bird's wing the bark of a
covote t lie hoot of an owl tt eight of
hoof -print or a broken bush. These
may mean nothing, or they may mean
an ambush a race for life capture and
torture.
Yi! vi! vi! "
Tiie level-seeming
praix
dry r
ne is broken
two miles awav by a
avine deeper
than a man's height. This curves and
bonds and leads on for miles. Scrunb-)
ling out of its depths, and each one
sounding his war-whoop as he mounts
his pony, are a sc ore of Indians.
For two days the hunter had swept
the horizon in vain. He was alone on
the great ocean. Night had been tran
quil and full of sound sleep. Here,
DOW, rising like specters from the
earth before him, is a band of blood
thirsty demons raving for his life The
sight stuns him for a few seconds.
Then, with a growl of chagrin and defi
ance, lie flings the saddle upon his horse,
picks up his rifle, and while yet the In
dians are a mile and a half away, he
mounts and heads for the east.
A race for life has begun.
The hunter's horse strikes into a
long, steady gallop, which would keep
hini alongside of a train of cars. There
is a chorus of yells from tho redskins as
they make the first rush. Then the si
lence of the prairie is broken onlv by
the thud! thud! of horses' feet. " The
very silence is ominous, ami speaks of
a grim dotorminatibn to run the victim
tlown.
Steady, now! The hunter's horse de
vours mile after mile of the green prai
rie, now at the crest of a swell now
almost hidden in a dip now for an in
stant out of sight of those who follow.
They gain a little. The hunter plans
that they shall. Every yard thev gain
requires an extra speed that will take
ten minutes oft'the race after high noon.
At ten o'clock they have gained half a
mile. Then the pace is even, and
neither loses nor gains.
There is something terribly grim in
following a man to his death. Not a
shout not a call not a rifle-shot.
Thud! thud! th.id! over level and ridge
and always to the east. The sun mounts
higher and higher, and now and then
the hunter glances hack with a faint
hope that the pursuit has been aban
doned. No! He might as well expec t
a wolf to quit the pursuit of a wounded
deer leaving its lite-blood to stain the
grass at every rod.
It is high noon.
The pursuit began over sixty miles
away, but the breeze brings to the hun
ter's ears that bum monotony of hoof
Itcats. and he glanres back to see that
same dark line strung out at his heels.
It has become a question of endurance.
j it fie can tire tneiu out he will escape.
He shuts his teeth anew, reaches for
ward to caress his horse
He is down! A burrow caught a foot
as the horse sped onward and man and
animal roll to the ground. The race is
finished. The poor beast whinnies an
apolojrv for his fall as he flounders
alxut with a broken lep;, and the ex
ultant shouts of the redskins hardly
reach the hunter's ears before he is
down alongside the crippled horse and
his rifle aimed at the approaching foe.
It is another bright, peaceful day.
Here are the same pure air, the same
blue sky, the same panorama of grass
and flowers and dimly outlined moun
tains. A band of hunters are crossing the
prairie at a steady gallop, instead of a
single man riding for his life. A vul
ture rises up with a hoarse scream a
second a third and the odor of decay
reaches the nostrils of riders and horses.
The band halts, rides to the left, and
presently all look down upon a sight
which tells its own story. The swollen
carcass of a horse, the scalped and dis
figured body of a hunter trampled
gr;;ss-spots of blood- -broken arrows
the earih uptorn by hoofs.
One with stouter heart than the rest
dismounts and picks up a dozen flat
tened bullets and a score of arrows.
Then he circles r..und the spot and
gathers up the empty shells thrown out
by the hunter's Winchester. Bullets,
arrows and shells are deposited in a
heap by the corpse, and the man points
out one three five seven spots on
the praifie where the trampled gras?
and stains of Mood show the fall of

At an editorial convention the con
versation turned on typographical er
rors. Of course every man present who
had wielded a Falser for the purpose or
lifting struggling humanity into the
upper strata, where the dazzling raj's
of the bright sun of knowledge should
illume the path, etc., had some remi
niscence about certain typographical
errors. Joe Peters, of the Blowtown
IJuglt; finally got the floor. "Gentle
men," said he, "see this scar across my
cheek as big as a horse-shoe; seo this

I had occasion to report a case in 'Squire
Field's office, and the evidence of one
of the witnesses did not tally very well
with the others. This was a big, burly
man, a livery-stable keeper, who might
be able to get away with Sullivan. I
incidentally remarked that the witness
was a veracious man. Well, gentlemen,
when the Bwjle came out the intelligent
compositor and the equally intelligent
proof-reader had got it voracious. The
livery-stable man saw it before I did.
and walked straight into the office, anil
without speaking a word he seized me
by the hand and broke those fingers so
they had to be amputated ; then he
jabbed me against the wall with force
enough to knock out my front teeth,
stopping to inquire whether I still
thought he was voracious. Before I
could answer he bit off a piece of my
ear antl asked if I took him for the fool
who undertook to eat eighteen goose
eggs in eighteen hours. Then he
slammed me against the imposing-stone
and broke my leg, and mildly inquired
if he looked like a man who would
make a bet to assimilate a brace of
quail every day for six weeks. Before
I could recover from that assault he
landed an iron inkstand against my
jaw-bone, with the query whether any
body had told me that he was the party
who could digest a peck of raw oysters,
at a sitting. As a parting salute he bit
a piece out of my nose and left. After
the doctor had gathered what there was
left of me and set my broken bones, 1
asked for a copy of the Bugle and dis
covered what it was that had made him

"Did yon sue him for damages?"
asked the crowd.
"Not at all." said Peters: "1 had got
more damages than I wanted already."

Massachusetts proposes to enrcour
age the cultivation of sorghum and
sugar beets by the offer of one dollar
per ton for all varieties of each raised

the manufacture of sugar. The offer is
to be open for three years, by which
time it is to be hoped that the industry
will no longer need special encourage
ment. A prominent New York farmer,
whose crops are proverbial for their
abundance, use? no other fertilizer than
laud plaster and clover. His plan is tc

Husbandman: Foul foot in cattle is
caused by pasturing on land so wet that
the hoofs sink into the soil. When it
once gets in a herd it is apt to become
infectious, and great trouble is often
found in getting rid of it. Powdered
vitriol applied after thoroughly cleans
ing the foot is the common remedy. It
is harsh, but effectual. As boggy land
is usually reserved for pasturing it is
worth while to know that even for this
purpose thorough drainage works
marked improvement. Again, after un
deY draining such land is often the best
for grain and root crops. -V. Y. Her

Melon Losses.
No watermelon suicides thus far,
though the price is low. In fact this is
a year of melon misfortune. Its great
lesson has Leon, beware of sudden suc
cess. Experienced hop growers have
said that the extraordinary price ob
tained last year was a damage to the
business, it will lead to such extend
ed planting that a glut may be expect
ed. This is the" cause of the present
melon misery. Last year the prices
reached an extraordinary mark, and
the result was that the South became
melon eray. Last year the price was
twenty dollars a hundred, but this was
so easily paid that growers lost sight of
it. This year, however, melons will
not bring enough to meet this debit,
and commission dealers have declined
receiving them unless freight is prepaid.
One shipment of 10,000 was refused by
the consignee, and on top of these came
fifty ear loads, which hail first been sent
to Cincinnati, and finding no market
there sent to this city. Being refused
by the commission merchants, they
were sold by the railroad agents, who
hardly got sufficient to pay freight. The
market was thoroughly glutted by this
forced sale, and then to make matters
worse the very next day 63,000 melons
arrived by steamer, making 230,000 in
one week, and it became almost hard
work to give them away. The health
inspector, however, interfered and
ordered aai immense quantity destroyed
to prevent disease. The melon mania
is now over and the land will bo de
voted to other crops Melons will
probably be dear next season, since one
extreme generally follows another. The
money made last year has been lost by
the glut, and experience thus proves
that an average profit even of moderate
am unt is better than extraordinary
prices and sudden wealth.' The waste
of melons which occurred during the
last month has probably never been
equaled in the memory of man. N. Y.

Profits of the Asparagus Crop.
There is perhaps no ordinary crop
grown that yields as much profit as the
asparagus. "Everybody seems to like it,
and the demand for it increases far be
yond the growth of the population. But
in this crop, as in almost every other,
everything depends upon tho proper
cultivation of it. We have seen state
ments that as much as from one to two
thousand dollars have been the profit of
a single acre; but it is very difficult to
get at the exact net gain of an acre, as
there arc so many expenses to be de
ducted which arc not at all times count
ed. An experienced trucker does not
grow onlv asparagus upon his land, but
other crops, which would generally be
suflicient to pay for all the expense ol
the asparagus crop, and thus leaving
this clear.
In speaking of the asparagus crop,
some people ask of us what variety is
the best to plant to obtain the best re
turn; but it is now ktiown that there is
no variety that will come true from the
seeds: and as asparagus can not be
raised in any other way, it is foolish to
talk of variety. It is discovered that
the plant has "male and female flower

crossed by another were in flower. No
doubt those who have endeavored to
improve the plant, and supposed they
had new varieties, were honest in their
opinion and sold them in good faith;
there is also no doubt but that they
were entirely mistaken, and that the
superiority of their asparagus was a
mere matter of culture. It has not been
many years that the separation of the
sexes in these plants has been made
known: and this lieing the case, of
course a distinct variety of asparagus is
out of the question. Gerntantoun Teh

As the proprietor of these medicines I conscien
tiously offer them to tho public as safe, reliable and
Certain remedies for the Cttrs of Consumption, and
wlwtcu&l coAftd at aftnast specific for thosa
knorhld conditions of the body, which. If neglected.
re apt to terminate In fatal diseases of the lungs. X
claim that the uss of my -remedies will cure Con
sumption. I do not claim that the dlaease can be cured after the
lung are destroyed, for no medicine can create new
ones; but I maintain that the first stages of Con
sumption arc curable, even when the lungs are partially
decayed. When one lung Is sound I am almost cer
tain of making a cure. If the patient will take proper
care of himself and follow my directions.
It may be asked : ' How is It that you can know St
much about this disease, and pretend to cure It, when
so many educated physicians, who have made a study
of it for years, pronounce It incurable?"
The question la a fair one, and shall be fairly an
swered: I do not claim to know more than other
physicians about the causes, nature and hlatory of
Consumption. I suppose that my views on these
points would be found to agree with those of most
educated and Intelligent physicians. We should agree
that while the final caute Is obscure in other words,
while It is not possible to say why Consumption selects
this or that person as a victim yet the predUtxtltna
causes are :
1st. Inheritanr. Consumption It hereditary In a
wonderrul degree. On parent very often entails It
upon the offspring, and both still more frequently, so
that whole families are often swept away, and hand
the predisposition down to their children.
2d, Cold. By this we do not mean those chanzrt of
weather which often produce Inflammation; but long
continued and steady cold, so that a condition of de
bility Is produced. Indeed, whatever tends to pro
duce long -continued debility will. In some persons,
generate Pulmonary Consumption. Prominent atconf
these Influences are Insufficient diet, living la nn un
wholesome air, sedentary habits, grief, anxletj-, dis
appointment, whether of tho affect lont or In busi
ness, and all other depressing emotions; the abuse of
mercury and the Influence of weakening diseases.
I also agree with the beat doctors aa to the manner In
which the lungs become affected. Pulmonary Con
sumption is also called Tubtreulout Consumption, by
which we mean a disease of the limit eauaed hy
tubercles. A tubercle it a tmall, roundish body,
which 1 deposited In the substance of tho lungs by the
blood. This it the beginning and first act of MM dis
ease. Many of these are often deottted at once.
Each one undergoes several changes. After producing
Inflammation of the parts of the lung next to lr, it
ends In ulceration, opens a passage Into the bronchial
tubes, and pasaes out at the mouth by spitting. The
place where the tubercle grew and ripened now bo
comes a cavity, and where there arc a great many
tubercles, of course they make a great many of theto
little cavltict, which gradually unto and leave great
holes in the lnngs. Unless a stop can be put to thlt
process. It will go on until the tubatance of Uc lungs
Is consumed and desth ensues. ,
Of course I agree with fhff faenfy nnnn t!ryni t
toms and course of th:' disease; the short, dry. hack
ing cough, so slight at first, but gradually Increasing;
then shortness of breath, a qalckeoing pulse, then fe
verish sensations, flushing of the qheeks and heat la

but growing emaciation." with foulile appetite, hi mor
rhages. Increasing tough, dlstnrlted sleeps fevered
tongue, (hen lois of appetite, taken to the bed, then
expectoration of softened tubercle In the shnp-: of
small lumps of yellowish, cheasy. or curdy matter;
hectic fever, brilliant eye. clUlls. night sweats, stiarp
pains In the side, lncrelhlng crn-w'fation and debility.
disordered stomach and aa trie, It, diarrhoea, nausea,
swollen extremities, hollow cheeks, sunken eyes.
w. aknesa so great that eipectoratlon Is Impossible:
then death, bringing welcome relief from the tortures

These results art net accidental. There la, no tuch

Whatever may be the caute, the origin of Pulmonary

with my Mandrake PUla, which' are the Itetl call tt!o

minerals, only vegetable matter. They evacuate the
Itomach and bowels gently but thoroughly, and do
not weaken or gripe. " They art like magic on the

next? Any one can answer that question. Put into
thai hungry stomach an abundant supply of ttu'ri

digestion into rich red blood. This will stimulate the
heart into stronger action, and It will pump a fuller
current out through tl.e arteries; healthy blood will
take the place of th thin, blur, flattened fluid In the
Teles, and toon a cUrcalatlon will be established which
