then, well, well.

'Betsy has had a long hard spell
of La Grippe.
What is Grippe? Can r.iiy one
tell me the difference between
Grip and Cold? Let some of ye
doctors try it a pull, then let them
give us the difference between chills
and ague. Truly we do, in this
fast age, have a lot cf new, high
sounding names hig scary
names for old common ailments
These names, and the
name by which the Dr. sas his
medicine would scare a stout man.
No wonder to me (wheu I come to
think of it) that we hav sich long
spells, and sich long bills to pay
when we look at those long names
for instance, try this one a pull,
''Hydrolocosnozics." I worked
hard a whole day trying to decipher
and define this hete one, and
late at night I found it to mean
expectorating from the nose. Then
we have a thousand and 1 "itises",
with prefixes as long as my arm,
&c. Now is it a wonder that
these ailmenls linger with the unfortunate
patient, who is anxious
to know what ails him? So after
examining a few more of these jaw
breakers and breath knockers, I
laid the thing aside, determined, if
possible, to get sick no more, nor
take more medicine. If I do, I
shall not ask the Dr. to tell me
what iz holdin we down or what
he's givin to git me up. I wanted
a prescription fcr a qt ov brandy
and, "by gum," the Dr. took his
book aud peccil and wrote like
this "Rx I. 0. Spts Viui Gaici,"
I scut the "scrip'' to a stiller but
he could not make head nor tail ov
it and asked what d n phule
wrote it. My agt. then told him,
that I wanted a quart of his best
brandy as I was sick it came too.
Now Mr. Editor i have concluded
that we should call a boss, "a
boss" and a cold, "a cold" and
have az little to do with grip or La
Grippe, influenzy 'or even a bad
cold az possible.
We are truly sorry to hear of
the severe illness of our young

so hard to do something against
him, are actually making m ny
votes for him.

together, but we no longer trot in

all if I could.

gratitude after using this remedy
as it is for water to flow down hill.
It is the one remedy that can always
be depended upon, whether a
baby be sick with cholera infantum

pleasant, safe and reliable. Have
