THE STORY OF A SCAR. "You promised to tell us some tinio how you ;ot that si-iir on your foivheacl, uncle." Ye3, b:y. but, the story is So little to my creil.t tli.it I have felt rather in clineil to pill it oil'. However, I'll tell it now; perhaps it may ilo you good perhaps not. They do say all boys quarrel. If that is so 1 don't see irhi it should be so. No good conies of it, but harm very oft en. I don't believe all boys do, but my brother (ieorpe and I did." or I should not now be telling you how I got that sear. We lived, you know, on the banks of the Sus juehanna. Do you know the meaning o that Indian name is "Wind ing Kiver?" It is well named, for, be sides its greater wind ng as shown on the map, described by school boys of my days as "a zig-zar liiu in the form of the letter N," its whole course is full of the loveliest little curves and bends, some'gentle, s onpi abrupt, all beautiful nn I leading on and on to new beauties. I have heard old travelers say that some of its scenery is unsurpassed by any thing in the way of quiet river land scape. Well, the boys who are so fortunate ns to live along such rivers have good times. There is lishing in all its varie ties, with line and with net and with outline you don't know what outline fishing is? We used to take a half-inch rope which would reach, say, half across tiie river. Along this at" intervals of about ten feet were tied pieces of fish line perhaps two feet long. These were hooked and bailed and then one end of the rope, or outline was fastened at the shore to some underground branch or root, the other being anchored as far out in the river as it would reach. There ivas nothing very sportsmanlike in this style of lishing. but it was by no means poor fun to go in the early morning in a boat along that line (which was put out overnight) and pull up each short line with the chance of linding a perch, "chub," pickerel, or, possibly, but not probably, a bass on the end of it: How good those lish tasted for breakfast! Another way was to spear the fish, at n;ght, with a lire of pitch-pine knots mad ; in an old dripping-pan mounted on a pole lixed lirmly to the side of the boat; 1 don't know whether boys of to day u-e what we didlhen, a kind of stutl which we bought, in the shape of small black shells, like cocoa shells, only larger. These we threw into the river when we lirst wont out ; the lish ate them eagerly and they had an intoxicating ellect on them, for they would rush ami splash about in the "water, making it easy lor us to lind them. I have since thought it was a cruel advantage to take of the poor things who knew no better than 'to take that into their stomachs which would lead them to ruin unlike beings blessed with sens j (or. hare they sense?) who do the very same thing knowingly! 1 did not. in those days, think much of the picturesque feature of this sport, but I well remember the glow on the! trees and the gleam on the water. think we might easily have been taken for some order of ferocious night goblin in the red glare with our formidable spears "Ah! was it one of those gave you the scar?" Xo, I nm coming to that. It came through a much tamer way of lishing. The long bridge which cros-ed tluvriver near my home was a very old one, the piers being built in the old-fashioned way, not of stone or of heavy open tim ber work, as ve see now-a-days, but more like wooden boxes, pointing, of course, an inclined plane upstream, but having the lower end open They were partly tilled in with loose, rough stone. These piers wetv favorite resorts lor quiet, unambitious tidi when we had nothing more venturesome on hand. We would row out to one of them, get inside ami ti-li as long sis we could get good bites, anil then move to another. I must have been about eleven years old and my brother George two years older, when wo went one morning out to one of the piers near the middle of the bridge, (ie rge had poor luck, and after a while proposed to try some other place. I. however, was having a good many nibbles, and refused. Then he wanted me to exchange poles, but would not do that either. " Well," he presently said, " you may stay here if you like, but I shall take the boat and go where I can catch something." " Yo;i may do as you please," I said. "l'o go wiili me," Hen." "Xo look there." I jerked a suck er out of the water and laid him Hag gling on the stones. " No trouble about catching lih here," 1 added, rather spitefully, as 1 took him from the hook. (icoiye angrily got in the boat and rowed away, shouting back to me: "You may get homo as you Lent can." Don't trouble yourseif about mo, old cranky," i answered. 1 did not mind a', all being left, for I knew he wo'.iid come back for me w hen he coo'ed down. I lished lor an hour or so when it occurred to me Ihar it would be srood joke to give him a liitle lrighl. It would be quite a satisfaction if could make him think for a little while that I hail conic to some harm through las leaving me. I told you iho piers were board"d up on the oiitMile. I'p near the top ot this one a board was gone, decayed uwnv, as 1 perceived when I gut up to it. For lorined the plan of climbing up to this opening and out upon the inclined plane to hide from (leorge, for he could liot see me there when he came to look lor me. Then I would climb dowu again when had enjoyed his alarm tmtl perplexity at not linding inc. No sooner said than done. I found it rather dilVn ult, for the timbers which supported the planking were some dis tance apart, and very weak with age. I p reeived now I hat the real supports of the bridge consisted of strong timber which had been set up inside, the out side being now a mere useless shell as I found to my cost, l-'or as I climbed through the opening and reached the in cline, hard work, for it shelved over a little, the whole thing began to crumble under me crashing dow n fifteen feet below, where on one s:de lay those jagged stones, on the other the deep, swill, running water. With a desperate rll'ort I half leaped, half scrambled up close to the outside wall of the bridge, the deiayed wool giving way under every step, till 1 gained a narrow ledge formed of the renewed timber. Here I was safe, but here 1 found I must stay until help came, for there was no sound supports within my reach. As I sat on this narrow seat, with scarcely any rest for my feet, 1 began to realize that I was in no pleasant posi tion, and looked anxiously about to see what might be mv chances of getting out of the t rap 1 had got myself into. Things were not promising. Less than an eighth of a mile above me the great d!im stretched itself from shore to shore. Its hollow roar was enough to prevent my voice being hoard far in any direo lion, imil lo tins w as a llied the ceaseless din of the (louring mills, paw-mills and paper mills at either end of it. I could only wait for Geo' ge to come, but hours passed, during w hich my cries for help were thrown back to me by the pitiless noise. As I grew cramped and ex hausted and iiiz.y it seemed to wrap i itself around me as if to bear me dow n I to the angry waters. 1 never have been nble to understand I how I clung there so long. The after noon wore away, and as the shadows grew longer 1 could dimly hoar shout ing and perceive more movement on shore. Then rays of fght shone from down the river artilicial light, I knew. There certainly was unusual excitement about the mills, and as twilight deep ened I could just see a boat put out from one of them and come' nearly to wards me, w hen it turned dow n stream. I called and shouted, but was still un heard. Then 1 (qok a quick resolution, born of the extremity of my position. I iathering all mv strength in one scream and one leap, I sprang out over the water in the direction of I he boat. My forehead struck on one of the zine- bound oars and the blood streamed over my face as 1 felt myself seized by friend ly arms. Then a halloo went up from my rescuers, which was carried from boat to boat and from bank to bank. 1 saw that the river was alive with those who were searching for me it was their lights I had seen. "Didn't (jeorge go back for you, uncle?" "Yes, but had never thought of look ing for me titor,: the bridge. After hunting long for me in sore dismay, ho had spread the alarm. Poor fellow! hu had sull'cred more than 1 had." "Hut he was the most to blame." "1 don't think so. I have alwavs ob served that w hen bovs, or others either. for that matter, get to quarreling there is generally little to choose on cither side. " Chieajo Ma in I a nl. Monstrous Fungi. Visitors to ancient wine-vaults o. damp coal-pits are sometimes aston ished bv the curious fungi which drape the walls with gruesome tapestry; Im every instance ot this kind is throw into the shade bv the extraordinary growths which have recently been dis covered in some of the deserted Mexi can silver mines of Nevada. The dank warm timber galleries and drifts of these old workings abandoned to them selves for years, have silently given birt'i to a monstrous brood of morbid vegetation, which, apparently, has no parallel in the regions of the sunlight and the upper air. In general they are all of a snowy whiteness, and some of tilt! hooded masses rise up several feet from the ground like sheeted ghosts. O.hers, in the distance, take the form of bearded goats or sleeping owls. Here great bunches of long, white hair hang down from the roof; and their huge, pulpy masses encumber the l'oor like brainstone coral. The latter appe ir to have sprung miraculously from some thing spilled upon the rocks in past days, while the former seem to have crystallized like hoar-frost from the at mosphere itself. Some of the rounded masses have actually lifted up from the lloor blocks of stone weighing ten, fifty, and even 10(1 pounds to a height of three feet. In the higher levels of the mines, where the air is drier, the fungi are far less bulky than below, and much (inner in texture. The shapes here are. however, more elaborate and beautiful. One kind grows in a twisted spiral like a ram's horn, to a length of live feet, and hangs from the rafters like a trophy of the ehiiso, or rather, liko a serpent suspended by the tail. Another sort sends out aslem the thick ness of a pencil to a height of one or two feet, where it blossoms into a bul bous knob something like a flower. Nothing liko the toadstool or the com mon mushroom is to be found, and the wondrous growths have ull tiie aspect of being called into a special being by the peculiarities of their environment. Kxclianijc. A German Fable. a I 1 A German satirist has produced tho following fable: "There were once four Hies, and they were hungry one morning. The lirst settled upon a sau sage ami made a meal, lint he speedily d ed of intestinal inflammation, tor the sausage was adulterated with aniline. The second lly breakfasted upon Hour, and forthwith succumbed to contraction of the stomach, owing to an inordinate qunutity of alum. The third lly was slaking his thirst with tho contents of the milk-jug, when cramps suddenly convulsed him, and he gave up the ghost, a victim to chalk adulteration. Seeing this, tho fourth lly muttering to hini-ell: 'The sooner it's over tho sooner to sleep,' alighted upon a moist ened sheet of paper exhibiting the in seHiition, 'Fly l'oison.' He drank to his heart's content, growing more vigor ous and cheerful at every moiithlul. Even the lly poison was adulterated." Tho Salt Lake Ti i'ninr declares that polygamous marriages still occur in Utah, and gives the names of several Mormons who increased their number of w ives in the Kiidowinuit House on one dav.

He Was squat led on the ground: bis forge tire was be fore him; his anvil was only about six inches high, and his bellows power was confined in a bo. As he squatted oi the ground one of his limbs w as extend ed, with his heel resting on a grooved block placed under it; between his big toe and the one adioining it was the handle of bis bellows, which he worked by the movement of his foot, bringing the toes back by a movement of the ankle joint. This man kept three irons in the lire, and never lost a minute: be never let up his hammering and fash ioning of nails only to put one rod in the lire anil take out another. I wntelieil him for over an hour to see if he would Ciiange Ins position or rest Ins ankle or toes, or pull because of fatigue, hut. he tired me out. I left him slill working his bellows with his toes and making nails with his hands. lie appeared as if rooted in his p isition, which must have been anything but comfortable, and the action of his Vies and foot afterwards intruded themselves into my dreams. Cotton-spinning and the weaving of cot ton fabrics is to be seen everywhere in the country. It is no uncommon thing to see girls, certainly not over nine years of age, spinning with their little wheels and spindle, and making an elegant twist, while their mothers are weaving at tho looms. While spinning the ope rative sits upon the (lour, ami the length of yarn spun is measured by the play of the. arm. the wheel hemg turned with one hand while the cotton is beingtwist- ed from the other, the body being sel dom moved. The loom is made to weave a cloth that is of regulation width, not exceeding lift 'en inches, the lifting and lowering of the warp being (fleeted by the foot, and the shuttle being passed by hand. They make slow progress at this tedious work, but they produce a cloth that has merit to it for substantial wear. This domestic factory occupies but a very small space, and the plant don't cost a fortune. The farmers use the same old-fashioned hoe their fathers did, and they till the soil in the way handed down from century to century. Tiie same methods of transportation, by the packing of cargoes on Ihe backs of horses and bulls', ami the shoulders of men and women, is adhered to with conservative .strict ness, outside the limits of the foreign settlements, and taking into considera tion the character or the country and the facility for road making, it is a ques tion for the future to solve whether it can be much improved. The carpenter and worker in wood holds to Ins old style of tools. He pulls his plane to ward him instead of shoving it from him. His bench is the lloor of ins work shop, which is usually part of his dwell ing. He uses a saw that cuts from the upward stroke, and of course it is pulled upwards instead of driven downward. He sits on his bench, i. c. the lloor, as he planes his material, and what is known as a sawhorse he does not admit into his premises. Fashioners of wood enware sit among their staves and tlo their work. 1'ainters of pictures put their work on the floor never upon an easel before them. The boatman uses a scull never an oar, or at least, he never pulls an oar. but always sculls his boat, and is master of the best method. The cleaner of rice is one who stands to his toil, and toil it is. Fancy a beam six to eight feet long, and eight inches in diameter, upon one end of which is af lived a pestle eighteen inches long, with which to pound the rice that is placed in a large wooden mortar, nearly a bushel at a time. This beam of wood is tixed upon a pivot running between two up rights, at such a distance from the cen ter of gravity that the weight of a man is required to lift the pestle, and vou have rice-cleaning out-lit. At the butt of this b "am stands the man, and to raise the pestle he places one foot upon it and throws his entire weight and force into Ihe action. The pestle being ele vated, he steps from his position to allow it to descend upon the rice, and this is kept up all day long. You may be sure these men develop the muscles of theii limbs and sweat like Turks, while they do not hamper themselves with any extra clothing. Yokohama (Ja) m) for. Sail Francisco Clirotiic'c. Sanitary Condition of Summer Resorts. Within tho "last few years the demands of the public in regard to health resorts and watering places of this country have increased, not only as to quantity, but as to quality. Quite a number of peo ple now require not only bathing, boat ing, and amusements of various kinds at their summer resort, but also that thev shall have some assurance that they shall have pure water to drink, ami that the air which they are to breathe shall not be rendered offensive or dangerous by imperfect systems of house drainage. At the present time the dangers from fouled water supply, especially if this be derived from wells, are in most places much greater in boardinrr houses than in the hotels proper, and this is due to the fact that the hold proprietor is usually not only suHicieiitly aman of business to understand the importance of keeping up the reputation of his house for health fulness, but his attention has been called to the close connection which is now generally believed to ovist between such diseases as typhoid fever, diarrluca, diptheria, elc, and methods of sewage disposal, and he therefore pays more attention to sanitary engineering details about his premises than does the kecpet of the average boarding-house. The tendency of all popular health resorts is to become unhealthy, because they do part more and more from their original type, which is that of a temporarily occupied camp, and tend to become vil lages, with village methods of water supply and disposal of excreta. This appears in foreign health resorts as well as in this country, and the insanitary con dition of some of the most famous water ing places is a common topic of discus sion in European medical and sanitary journals. It would certainly be w ise on the part of those selecting a summer re treat to give as' much attention to the wa t T supply and drainage as they usually do to the table in making their selection, but it must be confessed that at present it is diflietilt to obtain satisfactory infor mation as to the sanitary condition such places without a personal visit the locality. We advise our readers look before they leap, for lo leave one's comfortable city home in pursuit heailh and pleasure, and contract ty phoid as the result, is to) much like g. ling out to look for wool and coming back shorn.

The Japanese, whether he comes from North, South, Fnst or West, is proud nbove all else of Fuji-ynma. Ho paints it, he curves it in wood and stone, be rhymes to it, lie dictates volumes to it, ho ascends it religiously, and to him it is the unappronehed marvel and glory of the whole world. A Yeddo boatman could not credit the writer when ha was told that Fuji was not visiblo from Europe! Tbe Japanese learn to pro nounce its hundred names as a child ; he can repeat endless htories and fableB about jt long before ho has mastered the difficulties of the Katakana sylla bary; he never wearies of looking at it, and feels his momentary superiority to be incontestable when ho can point it out for the first time to a stranger. Vast temples, beautiful scenery, gorgeous pal nces are well enough in their way, ac cording to his ideas, but first of all see Fuji. To the south glitters tho expanse of the bay of Yeddo, dotted with innu merable junks and a fow vessels of Eu ropean build, and by the side of the bay runs the Tocaido, the great road of the Southern Sea, which lusy be traced by its brown fringe of houses until it is lost to sight among the hills behind which lies tho European settlement of Yokohama. Ia the "good old days" this was a terrible road to travel. Processions of great lords was continually passing up and down, and the penalty for making a humble obeisance was a blow from a keen sword. Jtoninn disbanded sol diers and gentlemen of the road infested its length and perhaps to no road in the world cliuB8 such a history of bloody oc currences as to the Tocaido. Now it is peaceful and quiet enough, for with the new order of things the great lords were banished and Kunins suppressed, and the completion of the railway has taken from it mast of its ancient traffio and prosperity. Signs of its old importance however, still exist in the shape of huge tea houses, now mostly decayed and de serted, and innumerable tumbles and shrines by the wayside. London Society. Some Peculiar Frogs and Toads. One has sometimes heard of people who have lived on their relations, after eating their own family out of house and home, and the ocellated bladder frog is some such a terrible performer, for he scruples not when hungry to feed on other frogs. Cyrtignathut ocellalui is the title he assumes in the scientific world, for so eminent a tragedian ought to have no common name. In this re spect, as well as in his cannibal propen sity, he is like his present neighbor, Ceraiophryi ornata, who, though called ornata, is as ugly as himself. Both these toad-shaped strangers hail from Buenos Ayres, and are as dangerous to handle bb the pike that frightened Mr. Briggs, which in one point they resem ble, lor they bark as well as bite. Other tragio scenes are acted in the adjacent corner, where twice a week at nightfall the giant toad regales himself by feast ing on white mice. His chum, the pan therine toad, is also present at tho ban quet; and though he comes from North west Africa, the manner of his feeding is like to that of bis Brazilian friend. That a toad should catch a mouse may seem as strango as that chameleons should capture a blue bottle fly; but certainly these foreign toads are skillful in the fatal sport. Like chameleons, they dart their slimy tongues upon their prey and pounco on it like panthers, if not liko common cats. But though feline in their appetites, these toads are more particular than ordinary pussies, for although they feed at nightfall they will not touch a mouse unless it hap pens to be white. All the Year Hound. A lot of young men of Pittsburgh went bathing and were endeavoring to see who of them could remain longest under water. One of them, George Stanley, mounted a high corner of a barge and remarking to his companions, " this is going to be a long dive," leaped head foremost into the water. When the water closed over him his friends be gan to count the seconds. After they had counted about two minutes they began to feel uneasy, as he did not ap pear. Search was then made for him, without avail, and ne never came to the surface again. He had truly taken long and his lost dive. Chicago Atws. Waschaner is a murderer imprisoned In Vienna who has confessed the killing of a young woman of tho town under remarkable circumstances. A committee of physicians appointed to examine into his mental condition reports that he is insane, and his derangement is said to exhibit the peculiar feature that he really believes himself to be sane, but in tho hope of escaping punishment, has been endeavoring to feign insanity. An old fashion has been revived in Philadelphia, by a barber, who visits eaeh client at his house, instead of com pelling him to wait at the Bhop an hour or two before the "next" belonging to him is shouted.

The arrival of a new cosh-boy in a Syracuse dry goods shop the other morn ing suggested to a number of his mis chievous fellows the propriety of subject ing him to an initiation. Having taken liirn into the basement, and tumbled him about after tho most approved under graduate method, it was proposed that he should be hanged. A piece of cord fas tened overhead was accordingly slipped around his neck, and a box on which lie had been standing was removed from under him. There he dangled until his face was black and his tongue protuded. At the latter manifestation they became alarmed, and endeavored to release their victim, but there was some delay in get ting a knifo, and when at last he was cut down he was almost insensible. The young executioners were immediately discharged. AN OPEN LETTER. Value from Parties of the Highest Standing , When the peopla of America become so thoroughly aroused, and on a suhjeet of luich serious importance ns the preservation of their lives and health, it is but natural that the ones who have been largely instru mental in ttie origin of this movement should (ipesk frankly and directly to the people most interested. It is for this reason that we thin come before the public and nmke the following revelations. Kvery careful observer who has sought to keep pace with the inarch of events has noted the nlarming increflFe of certain pe culiar physical troubles within the past few years. These troubles have come at unex pected moments and in ft most treacherous way. They hare manifested themselves in innumerable forms, but they have alwavs bad the same cause. They have not afllicted the minor parts of the body, but have gone direct to the strongholds of the system, and their work has usually been n prompt as it is fatal. Their treacherous and deceptive nature has often prevented a careful anuylsis of wnat causes tliem. and, ns a result, intense sutlering and linui disaster have usually ensued. The real cause, however, hns been a derangement of the kidneys, and nil of these troubles are, in fact, the lirst symptoms of the terrible llright's disease, which has cast its dark shadow over so many homes in the land and is increasing wonderfully and contin ually. It is now conceded by the ablest physicians in every land and by eminent scientists tiie world over, mat tins disease is the result of blood poisoning. This poisoning is brought about by wasted and unhealthy kidneys that permit the poison to remain in the blood, instead of throwing it from the system, lint it is equally evi dent to all who have studied into tbe effects nnd have become conversant with the facts, that a disordered state of the kidneys and liver produces most of the common compluints and pains which afflict the hamuli race, and they can be traced to this source just as certainly nscun Kright's disease. To purity a stream wc must go to its source, and to cure a tlisease we must remove the ce.r. It being true, therefore, that nine-tenths of all human ailments are cuused bv diseased kidnevs or liver, the only certain way to cure these troubles is by treating the organs which cause Them. How intimately the kidneys are associated with the entire system may be understood from the fact that over 1,000 ounces of blood pass through them every hour, being more than 200 gallons, or nearly one ton in the course of twenty-four hours. This vast mass of living Huid is sent to every part of the body, and if the kidneys are diseased the impurities that are in the blood are not removed, and hence pass through the veins, carrying disease in some one of its many terrible forms. The horrors which accom pany most of the diseases caused by disor dered kidneys and liver cannot be described in print, while the dangers surrounding them are even greater than the agony. And yet a person may be troubled for mouths without knowing the cause of the diseases that have attacked him. .Some of tiie symptoms of the first stages, any one of which indicates disordered kidneys or liver are these: 1'ains in the back and around the loins, severe headaches, dizziness, in flamed eyes, a coated tongue and a dry mouth, loss of appetite, chilly sensations. indigestion (the stomach never is in order when the kidneys or liver are deranged, i dryness of the skin, nervou.siiess, night sweats, muscular debility, despondency, tired feeling especially at night, pulling or bloating under the eyes, etc. If any of the following things are noticed about-the lluids passed from the system, it shows that Ihe kidneys und liver are out of order: red deposit, a scum upon the surface, an un usual thickness or thinness, a very dark or a very light color, a burning sensation in passing, an unusual odor, a retention, or frequent desire to void and inability to do so. The above are a few of tbe hundreds of symptoms which indicate the beginning of aggravated cases of kidney or liver ditli culties, und they require instant attention. 7i these symptoms are not checked at once, they are abcost certain to result in some one of the ninny terrible diseases of the kidneys. Ilut unpleasant as all the symp toms and even these diseases may be. they are as nothing compared to the last s'ages of the complaints. The kidneys waste away by degrees, accompanied by intense pains; the heart becomes uncontrollable; the lungs are oppressed; the eye-bails grow glassy, and the entire system is reduced and debilitated. For weeks before death comes the sufferer looks forward to it as blessed relief, and anything that ran furnish even temporary help is gladly hailed. Then it is that bloating begins; the face becomes puffy und pallid; the breath can only be caught in gasps, speech is impossible and muscular action sus pended. The patient dually sinks into state of unconsciousness to everything except the pains which are racking him, and death conies by certain but slow degrees. There can be but one conclusion which all readers of care und judgment will draw from these facts, which is the necessity of treating thedisease in time and by that means which has been provVn the best and most etiicient. It hns been our privilege to treat more cases and efiect more cures of this terrible complaint than has ever been known before in the history of the world. The wonder ful sale which our remedies have attained is due wholly to the fact thht they have cured the ones who have used them. The power and value of any remedy must rest wholly on a basis of worth, and here just where our tsafe Kidney and Liver Cure has found its wonderful power and success. Itut in this connection comes one important fact: It has always been true that articles of merit are subject to imita tions. No one seeks to counterfeit the bills of a worthless bank. The productions of cracked inventor or witless writer are never copied. It is just so with a healing remedy. If it possess no merit it will not be subjected to imitations. If, how ever, it has power and value, imitations will spring up on every side. "While it a tribute to the vulue of this medicine that it has imitations, still, in justice to those w ho are suffering, we feel that ull fehould be warned againut them. There is but one known remedy that has ever been able to cure serious kidney troubles or control these great organs when 1 once derunged. and that remedy is Wur ner'sSufe Kidney and Liver One. There are numerous nostrums on the market claiming to be just as etiicient und some which even claim to be the same. The test of merit, however, is in what has been ueeonipliiihed, iind we therefore.say unhes itatingly that lor ull diseases of the kid neys, liver and urinary organs Warner's Hufe Kidney und Liver Cure stands alone, not only in point of excellence, but in the wonderful results it has achieved. In order to successfully avoid the purchase of spu rious and injurious medicines, observe these facts : Uur remedy is put up in dark amber glass Lotties, with the Safe (our trade-murk blown in the back. A private proprietary six cent internal revenue stamp is atlixed tu the neck und covers tho top of ihe cork and is of a light brown color. In the middle thereof is a Safe in outline, and on it the picture of a negro gathering herbs. If this stump is not found oj every boltlu of the bate Kidney and Liver Cure, or I thert is any viatQct that it has beta Um- peird with, snd it Psfe Is nr.t blown on the hark t,f Hip bottle, reject the bottle t once, and innst on hnvinir a (jenuine one. We ore led t publish the fereiroinir in order that the public may know and realize just where we stand. We have always Mn!c;!it to keep our personality from oh tni.hni? upon the public, knowing full well that ihe value of our remedy ws the essential thinjr, but the unexampled m-e which has been made of this medicine, and the volumes of letters we are constantly receiving demand a personal statement from us. Wc are justly prat: lied at the cnnt'nlenre which has been shown us, and thankful for the myriaes of cures our remedy has performed, and we pledce our selves for the future as we have endeavored In th past, to furnish the best and only valuable reinedv that enn control and cure all tiie many and terrible troubles arising from disorders of these great organs, fcincerelv, H.
