The nir.? ^ teaae'«£ this

crowded, b . rage of life
in the I I States is de
creasing e\cry year. Sudden
dcailis from h rvous collate
among our : iness, profess
ional and public men are so
frequent as scarcely to excite
remark. The major.fy of sui
cides, commuted without ap
parent ro.isoa, or under so-eaiied
“depression of spirits,'* are
really prompt 'd bv nervous
prostration, w h is a fruitful
source of insanity and crime
with all . ir . l ief and horror.
These < are startling.
They th:\ .. he very life of
the nr.bori. x.uy assail the
springs of its t c-wer and proe
jiurity. Ti: y wreck manhood's
strength and woman’s useful
Hess and beauty.
Every one should know the
causes. W hat are they ? The
answer is easy and terribly
plain: Our vicious personal
habits; our careless and lawless
eating and drinking; the in
tense mental and physical strain
arising from our mad race after
money, jxxsition and influence;
the fears and struggles of ]>ov
erty; the use of narcotics and
stimulants;, our fashion of
turning day into night and
night "into day; and, briefly,
our desperate willingness to
pay any price for an hours
pleasure or success. So we
burn life’s candle at both ends
and till the lunatic asylums
and the graveyards.
The disease from which we
suffer and die is, in plain Eng
lish, Nervous Dyspepsia, as it
is seated in the Nerves and in
the organs of Digestion, Assim
ilation and Nutrition. Healthy
digestion being impeded or des
troyed, the whple body, nerves
included, is literally starved;
eveu when there is no emaci
ation to tell the sad story.
Nervous prostration sends
out its warnings:—headache
in the morning; a persistent
dull heaviness or aching at the
base of i i. brain; wakefulness;
lass of arm. titeand disgust with
foal; loss of mental energy and
interest In ordinary duties and
business; restlessness and anx
iety without any assignable
reason; eructations; bad
breath; foul mucous on the
teeth; e ndonal giddiness,;
palpitation of the heart; sal
lowness < the sk;n; coated
tongre at i gradual failure of
Strength a;, ambition.
The remv -iy is a total aban
donment of the habits and cus
toms which cause the disease
in each individual case, and the
use of Sh< ' er Extract 0j.il* >t$
(Scigvl's Syrup) to cure t!:e
mischief already done. This
great remedy, prepared by the
Shaker Community of Mt. Leb
anon, N. V., is especially adapt
ed to eradicate Nervous Dys
pepsia. To do this it acts
directly and gently but power
fully upon tue disordered stom
ach, liver and kidneys, restor

moting the secretion of bile, ex
pelling waste matters from the
system,and purifying the blood.

An Explanation Concerning; tho Death
Register— IJeantiful Appearance or tho
Cemetery—Graves of tli* Unidentified.
Tho Rows of Tombstone*.
Let us turn to tbo cemetery. This is situ
ated about half a mile northeast of the station
at Andersonvillo, and comprises about twenty
four acres of beautifully undulating grounds,
with many natural features not to bo fouud
in the spot from which wo have just turned.
Tbo appearance of tbo cemetery has l-ecn en
tirely changed since war days. Then it was
but a rude field. Tho dead wero buried in
trenches seven feet wide, four feet deep and
from fifty to 150 yards long. No coffins were
used, but tho twish’d, emaciated forms of the
dead prisoners were laid side by side, ai.d at
tho head of each was driven a little stake, on
which was painted a number corresponding
to tho numU r of tho body on tho death regis
ter. Tho cemetery was a direful necessity, |
anil no extra pains were taken with it. Not i
before Juno, 1S05, was any step taken toward j
inclosing tho ground and marking tho graves |
so that they could bo identified in the future. I
A word of explanation respecting tho death
iv lister K perhaps necessary that tho reader
may see why only flSl out of 12.TJ3 lack j
identification. When n prisoner died l;is j
omra lcj reported to the registrar of the
.It • 1. a prisoner appointed for thut purpo-c, ;
u U: \.n k» t at tho south gate. Tin
r.iri . >niod lb*' name, state, regiment.
i:.y, c.c.k and date of death of tho dm 1
..nil n -i him a number. Thus tael j
• was nun-hcrcd, and as they were c:. i
r*-l <>ut in the dead wagon for burial cap
\va» taken to inter die bodies in order and j
mark each with a numbered stake. All tlii
wa. <;• no bv j. isouers detailed for that work. !
and lit nee tho cure that wrta exercised.
Thus, when James B. Moore, assistant
quartermaster United States army, was ap
point 1 to care temporarily for tho dead at
identifying most of tho graves. With a
force of several hundred mea he proceeded tc
lay out walks, fence in tho grounds and
mark the graves with painted head boards.
About 100.000 feet of pine boards wero thus
used. Of course, sotno stakes had been re
moved and some directions on tho registry
were iniix.-rfeet; but tho car© that was taker
is a credit to those who had the matter in
Tl:e work then begun so timely has sinct
b(H>n untiringly kept up. Tho cemetery now
presents a beautiful apjiearance. Tho grounds
are nicely laid out and neatly kept. Tin
whole is inclosed by a brick wall about live
and a half feet high, tho plainness of tho wall
being relieved by neatly constructed twenty
foot panels, which are supported by squan
pilasters, tbo pilasters being carried abovo the
top course of the wall. Tho lino iron gate;
are always open to visitors, who flock to tin
place by hundreds.
From the center of a diamond shaped plat
ris* s a flag staff on which the stars and strijte.
aro to bo seen flying from sunrise to sunset
except in inclement weather. Near by art
stationed a couple of cannon, mounted or
atone bases. From this point radiate foui
finely kept avenues, about twenty feet wide
jurallel rows of large water oaks -ast on then:
an abundant shade; brick gutters on eithei
side keep them well drained. Tho four sec
tions of the cemetery nro also well shaded anc
lieautifully adorned with shrubs and foliagt
The graves, of course, aro as they wort
fir*t formed. The painted head boards that
Mr. Moore erected have been taken away and
‘ burned, and substantial white marble slain
have lieen erected in their places. These
stones aro of two kinds, but those of each
kind are uniform. Hero nnfl there, indeed,
ure stouts tl.at have been furnished by the
family of the tlead, but tho majority aro ol
the uniform make, furnished by the govern
For the graves of identified soldiers the
' t :n!"tones aro flat, polished slabs, three feet
long, one-half being .under ground, four
inches thick and twelve inches wida On tilt
face side is a raised shield, and on this is
recorded the number, name, rank and state
of him who sleeps below. This is neat, and
of course somewhat monotonous, but it is the
best a generous molded public could do. For
thi* unknown soldiers tho stones aro four
inches -quare an l project only flvo inches
a! Kjve ground. Tho rows of graves aro about
teuor twelve feet apart. Everytliiug is sc
n- atly eared for, the spot is so replete with
memories, tho symmetrical rows of tomb
stones are so symbolic or a similar cause and
an equal fate, the pleasant grounds aro sc
shady mu! quiet that one feels tho scene
deeply impressive. Hero and there, too, are
found cast tablets—there ore some twenty-five
of thorn altogether—bearing suitable inscrip
tions. Many of these aro extremely beauti
ful, bringing to tho visitor’s mind the dignity,
heroism and suffering of the fallen soldiers.—

(dithering Spruce Cum.
Spruce gum is obtained in the forests yl
Canada, Maine, New Hampshire, and Ver
mont. The gum gatherers go many miles
into tho forest, erect rude cabius, and each
one remains until ho has gathered IOC
pounds. He carries it home, where the
women and children clean it from all its im
purities. such as bark, twigs, and other for
eign substances, and sort it into the different
grades, all of which are known to tho young
est child in the business. It is a big day’s
work for a woman to clean and sort ten
pounds. While the household is cleaning his
collection the gum gatherer returns to the
woals and works until ho has another batch,
and getting it is not easy or rapid work. The
gatherers go through the woods looking at
the virgin spruces. When tho gum that I
forms on the outside of tho trees is onco re- [
moved the tree will never again yield enough !
to make it worth tho while of the gatherer to i
visit it. So he must hunt out the trees that ,
have escaped tho notico of his class during all j
the years tho woods have been searched by
The gum gatherer carries a stout polo
which is in sections like a jointed fishing rod.
At one end of the pole a chisel is fitted snugly
to the wood. Beneath the chisel is a cup
boldiug half a pint When tho gatherer dis
covers a mass of gum on a tree, no matter
how high it may be, ho runs his chisel up
against it and cuts it off when it falls into the
cup. It is then placed in an oiled bag slung
across tho back of the gatherer. So slow is
the accumulation by the collector, ordinarily,
that ho considers himself fortunate if ho
gathers 100 pounds a month.—New York
A Great Combination.
A large brass chicken in the sbapo of an
inkstand is the latest novelty. The boarding
house keepers are experimenting with them
to ascertain if the shadow of one of
ti!R?i- will not make us rich chicken soup as a
ph >t. 'graph from the original hen does. This
would enable them to combine business and
ornament in great shape.—Dansville Breeze.

At the age of three months a rash made
its appearance on my face. A physician
was called; lie said teething was the
eause; he prescribed some cooling- med
icine, hut the sores spread to my cars
and head. Another Nl. I>. was called,
lie professed to know all about the case,
called it “King’s Kvil,” and prescribed
gunpowder, brimstone and lard mixed
into a salve, hut the disease continued.
They could not do anything with it. An
other prescribed borax water and Ilnur;
another, linsood poultices. Xonooftheiu
did me any good at all, hut made me
worse. The disease continued unabated;
it spread to mv arms and legs, till 1 was
laid up entirety, and from continual sit
ting on the floor oti a pillow my limbs
contraetod so that I lost all control of
them, and was utterly helpless. My
mother would have to lift mo <>ut and
into bed. I could get around the house
on my hands and feet, hut 1 could not
get my clothes on at all, ami had to wear
a sort of dressing gow n. My hair had
all matted down or fallen off, and mv •
head, face and ears wen; one scab, and !
iiad to have a towel on my bead all the
time in tlie summer to keep the flies off.
My parents consulted a prominent phy
sician and surgeon here in Chicago i the
other physicians before mentioned were
of Dund'as and Hamilton, Canada), lie
said lie eon id do nothing for me, tliht the
chances were that I would grow out of it,
or tiiat it would strike inwardly and kill
me in time. He wanted to cut the sin
ews of my legs so that 1 could w alk,but I
would not let him, for if 1 did get better
I would have no control of them.
The disease continued in this manner
until 1 w as seventeen years old, and one
day in January, 1*79. in the Chicago Tri
bune, I read an account of your medi
cines. They described my case so ex
actly that I thought, as a last resort, to
give them a trial.

Tito tlrst morning after using it my
llcsh(had no skill only on the end of my
nose) was a pink color. Next day it was
kind of white, and I could place my
hands on the sores without it being paln
lul. In about two weeks 1 could stand
straight, but not walk, I was so weak,
but my sores were nearly well. Then
1 commenced the use of the (Vtutra
Rksoi.yknt, and in time days I was
worse than ever. 1 was one mass of
pimples from the top of my head to the
soles of my feet; to say they were pain
ful would not do justice to the case. In
from two to four days tiiev burst and
left a small scale, which dropped oil'and
left the spot pure and the skin white,
and as near ns I can iiidg* 1 was cured
in about six to eight weeks, and lip to
this date < >. c. from January, IM7t», to
January, 1»7 , 1 have not been sick in
any way, nor have had the least nig ms of
ilie disease n appearing on me. i have
an excellent appetite, have the very best
of health. My limbs are straight, sup
ple and strong. I have been « xnosed to
ail sorts of weather without tin* least
signs of the disease yet. The only dill’er
enco I find in myself i* that my akin is
liner, softer and not so liable to get chap
ped as is other persons. '*
No doubt many persons will not be
lieve this almost improbable story;
many will think it grossly exaggerated. '
I don’t blame them a bit if they do. blit
to satisfy themselves they can call or
write to mo and find out ii' what 1 have
