I)id space permit, we could give many hundred certificates, from all parts where the Pills have been used. but evidence even more convincing than the expenrience of eminent public men is found in their etfects upon trial. These Pills, the result of long investigation and sunds, are offered to the public as the best and n.est complete which the presen:t state of medical lmience can a ford. TLea are compounded not of 'he dr.is themselves, but of the medicinal virtues ," ly of Vcegetable reimedies, extracted by chemical price-'s in a state of purit"', -el combined together in etch a manner as to insur.e thre best results. This system of comnposition for icedicines has teen found in the Cherry Pectoral and Pills iotlt to produce a amore efficient remedy than had hitherto been ob tined by any process. The reason is perfectly oh ;tous. While by the old mode of composition, every medicine is burdened with more or less of arre monious and injurious qualities, by this each indi 'idual virtnue only that is desired for the curative effect is present. All the inert and obnoxious qual ities of each substance employed are left behind, the curative virtues only being retained. Hence it is self-evident the effects should prove, as they have proved, more purely remedial, and the Pills a sirer, oinre powerful antidote to disease than any other medicme known to the world. As it is frequently expedient that my medicine should be taken under the counsel of an attending Physician, and as he could not properly judge of a temedy without knovwin its composition. I have suipplied the accurate F' rmulm by which both my Pectoral and Pills are madce to the whole body of Practitioners in the United States and British Amer ican Provinces. If, however. there shoulid be any one who has not received -them. they-v will * be promptly forwarded t, mail to his request. Of al :he PI'atent .ediciners that are ofibred, how few would be taken if their composition w:as known ! 'iheir life consists in their mystery. I have an nysteries. The composition of my preparations is laid open to all men, and all who are competent to judge on the subjecrt freely acknowledgectheir convictions of their intrinsic merits. The Cherry Pectoral was pronounced by scientific men to be a wonderful medicine before its effects were known. Many em inent Physicians have declared the same thing of hsy Pills, and even more confidently, and are will ng to certify that their anticipations were more than remalized by their effects upon trial. IThey operate by their powerfull influence on the intmal viscera to purify the blood and stimulate it into healthy action-remove the obstructions of tae stomach bowels. liver, and other organs of the body, restoring their irregelar action to health, and by corectinr, wherever thei exist, such deranne le"tis a.1 are the first origin of disease. hlein sugar-wrapped, they are pleasant to take, tmei nb g purely vegetable, no harm can arise from their use in say quantity.

"Build .gain," was the reply, "and when the last stone is about to be placed, come to me, and hv that time I may have found an expediernt." Manoli accordingly, for the third time, labored, and for third time hroughit the church near perfection. Theni he pau-el and went to the anchor ite, who received him wihl a glare of iorror such as he had never seen before, hurriedly interrupted his pious salutation anl snail in a strange. unearthly voice, "Watch to morrow from the pinnacle, and the first woman thou beholdest np preaching the east, calse her to be taken, whenr she reaches the place of work, with whatever she may have in her arms, and walled up within one of the pillars of the church. Thus only will success crown efiort." Msnoli was a humane man; and his heart shrank within him at hearing this order. But his own life, with that of many others were at stake, and he went away from the cell sadly, determined to obey whatte conceived to be a divine command, lie was awakened next morning by the singing of tihe workmen, and climbed tp immediately to the ap pointed place, when, shading his eyes from die low sun with hand, he anxious ly looked forth.

She lookedl around for her husnanl , eager to exllain the ecai-e of her delay, and to jIsti.y herself lie was soon in her pres enne. Looking on by the workman's torches, whic wwere already lighted, she woi ered at the solemnity of his aspect. lhe diid not shed many tears; for lie be lievedi that hlie was obeyitig the thrice expressed will of heaven. lie kissed his wife tt.lerly, putting aside the hands of the little child, which endeavored to el-'sp his neck-lfor how couhl le have resisted Sthat bares ?-and then, in a loud husky voice, ordered the two victims to bhe en clised in the central pillar of the great a le. 'they wondered and miurnured but the'y obeyed-and the shrieks ou despair tllhat thrilledl at first through the ai ikness were soon drowned in the noise oif hulinit t'rs, chisels and pickaxes. - Slanoli lookd sternly on until the pale f-ace of his wife had disaippeared; and then he went apart, and throwing himnt self on the ground, spent the night in despair, which no consolation came to visit. visit. Shortly afterwards the church was fni.hed, and all the country round came to sidhor praises on the architect. But some say envy. and some say injured ali;oction was on the watch. The most ri,oable story is that the father of Uca. a master workman, silently excited his comrads against Manoli. One day when he had ascended to the highest tower to see that all was right, they drew away the ladder and called out to him taunt ingly to come down it he could. The unhappy man shrieked aloud, endeavor ing to jIstif. himself. He had obeyed the orders of heaven, given through the anchorite of the cell. They replied that the anchorite had died the'day before his last visiv, and that he had been de lulled by a fiend in human shape. His despair then became overwhelming. But love of life is strong. lie was a great mechanician, and endeavored, they say, to fabricate a pair of wings, by which he might fly down from that immence height. Ile dared not implore the succor of heaven, and he leaped with mad courage. Down he came. The wings, shattered by the first .sock, beat uselessly round him during that terrible drive. He was seen to descend like an arrow ; and they say the earth opened like water to re ceive him and closed again over his head. The legend asserts that ever since at the hour of'midnight, a plaintive womans voice is always heard murmuring through the church, imploring Manoli to release her and her chill. The present inhabitant of the ruined Argis has never heard these words; for lie has never been present at the hour when they are uttered. lnut he knows he can do so when he will. Meanwhile. he never wakes at midnight without of fering tiup a prayer for the soul of poor Uca, and even for that of the unfortu nate Manoli. The Wheat crop of Virginia is said to look very thrifty, and stands well upon thlm ground. ! lE'scE IN TImE KITCIEN.- I'rof.
