C. L. YALLiSDIGHAI.
Lest Friday morning the sad intelligence
was flashed ftoross the electric wiros,to every
city in the Union, that 0. L. Vallandinghani
bed acoidently ehot himself at Lebanon, O.
Mr. Vallandingbam wee moil emphatically
self-made men. Be commenced earl; in
life, educated himself and supported other
membere of his family at the same time. At
the close of his collegiate studies he adopted
the profession of law, and was remarkably
successful. At the outbreak of the rebellion
he took strong grounds in faror of state
rights and for peace, and like many others
was arrested and condemned to cooiinetneot
until "the end of the war," Hot Lincoln,
Stanton A Co., found they had an elephant
on their hands and modified this sentence
and gave him every chance to escape, and
they were greatly relieved when they heard
he was in Canada. His subsequent return,
nomination for Governor by tbe Democracy
of Ohio, as well the other politioal events
are too well known to need oommeut
Be was born in New Littbon, Ohio, in
lS-i!, commenced active life as a school
teacher, but soon abandoned teaching for
the study of law in the practice of which he
was very successful, and in his death the'bar
loses on, of its ablest advocates, and the
Democratic party one of its strongest ad
kerents. Bis political career began in lS5f,
when he was first elected to Congress from
the Third Ohio District, and held his seat
in that body until IStni. For a good politi
cal leader he was too impulsive and iujudi
oious. Entering into political strife with his
whole mind and soul oomplutely absorbed
with its questions he was apt to be too
sanguine to strike out too fast regardless of
the pit falls and obstacles, which his party
must encounter if tbey undertook to follow
Dim, as a conseqaenoe, for several years
he became alienated and took oo active part
in political campaigns. All this time, how
ever, had not been mis spent, and the sober
moments of rejection afforded him by a re
tired life, were the means of eradicating
many of his former prejudices and opinions,
and plaoing him upon a stand from whioh
he could take comprehensive view of the
situation. The remit has been that in '71
he leaped to the front ranks of the De
mocracy, and with eloquent, thrilling
speeches and weighty argument, has urged
them to "Let tbe dead Past bury its dead,"
accept the situation as it is, and battle in
the cause of liberty and justice, upon a plat
form as broad and liberal an ever adopted
by any party, in any country. But Mr. Val
laodigham has passed to that bourne from
which no traveller returns, and bis life and
deeds have gone npon record, to be pro
nounced upon by this and future generations.
No man, whether friend or foe, denies tbat
he was an npright, conscientious and honest
man ; one whom his family and circle of
friends and acquaintances, all delighted to
honor. A man of commanding presence,
an eloquent and impassioned speaker, of a
sooial, friendly disposition, and with a heart
brimfbll of love and charity for suffering
humanity, let the hand of oriticism from all
parties fall lightly upon him, and those who
are inclined to censure, remember that all
are liable to err, and that this man in the
purity and ohsstity of his motives, stands
head and shoulders above the masses like
Saul among his fellows.
IMPORTANT FROM MIS80TJBI.
We were so fortunate as to meet, last eve
ning, with an old friend, Sir. Corken, of
Davenport, who has just returned from an
extended tour through Northern Missouri
and Kansas. He says that all crops in that
seotioo are looking finely, exoept wheat,
which has been greatly damaged by the
chinch bug. But as little wheat is grown
there and most of the farmers are stock
raisers, the loss will be but slight. He re
ports that money is in much easier circula
tion there than with as, all of the merchants
are carrying a large stock of goods and
business is buoyant and active.
The people in that seotion are fully alive
to the advantages resulting to them through
the increased facilities for communication
with the northwest, which the new lines of
railroad that are being built wi'l offer them.
The Chicago &, Southwestern road is now
completed as far as Princeton, the county
seat of Mercer county, Mo. Hitherto, the
people of that locality, have been obliged to
transport all of their farm products to
Chillicothe. the nearest railroad station, by
wagon, a distance of 63 miles. In the course
of 10 days the road will be finished to Tren
ton, 22 miles southwest of Princeton, and
it is calculated that by the 1st of Aug.it will
be built through to Leavenworth, Kansas,
and trains making their regular trips, thus
plaoing the North and West in direct com
munication with Northern Missouri, Kansas,
New Mexico, and the States south. The
people throughout the whole section the
roa4 traverses, are greatly excited, and far
mers with their wholo families, travel a dis
tance of 30 and 40 miles to see the trains
pass, no doubt realizing that the iron horse
will be to them a source of wealth and in
creased comforts. But, as great as the ben
efits may be which the inhabitants of this
' seotion will derive from these new enterpris
es, they cannot exceed those which will arise
in the Northwest from the same source. It
opens up a new and splendid country for our
merchants and manufacturers to advertise
and sell their goods, and will tend greatly to
develop the grain and stock markets, and
lumber trade of the Northwest. Even now
many of our first class business houses in
the West have their agents in the field, and
11 report that their success is good. Let
all of our business men look to it, and be
ready to "strike while the iron is hot."

Wby Dr. Ichenck's Medicines are
to Popular.
Why is Bohenek's Pulmonio EyTup is aueh
general demand 7 Tha answer is a very simple
net It is in demano. oeeause us ueaung pro
perties are greater than those possessed by any
other medioiae In use for the oure of Consump
tion. It purines the blood one of the first steps
towards a curt. Without pure blood disease can
never be eradicated from the system. As well
expect water to run up hill of its own volition as
to eure consumption without a oomplete purifi
cation of the blood. This is the peculiar pro-
nertv of Dr. Sohenck's Pulmenio Syrup. But
it does more than this. It not only purines the
blood, but it allays Irritation of the bronohial
tubes. It collects and ripens the impure mat
ters collected there, and enables tha patient to
threw them off by painless expectation: This
great syrup has anohter virtne. It possesses
nutritions qualities which give sustenance, aad,
consequently, strength to the invalid. Now
combine these three qualities, and you have an
answer to the inquiry
WHY IS TBE PULMOKIC SYRUP IH SUCH
DKMASD?
Thousands have testified It with complete sat
isfaction; thousands have used It and been
eared; thousands are using it and being cured
But Dr. Sohenok has other remedies. Thereare
other agencies to be employed in the cure of
consumption, and he has provided them.
If it be asked why Schenck's Mandrake Pills
are so noDular. the Question is answered as
r r -, - i
readily as in the oase of the Pulmonic Syrup.
SCHENCK'S MANDBAKE PILLS
have aljiost universal application to human
diseases, and, though they have been mainly re
oommended in pulmonary cases, their virtues in
other maladies have been so completely aud sat
isfaotorily demonstrated that the people will
have them. Now, why are they so essential
the cure of consumption ? Because thelngredi
ents of which they are composed aot directly
upon the liver, causing that important organ to
throw off its torpidity, and make healthful
cretioni. The Mandrake Pills
CONTAIN NO CALOMEL
to spread its poison through the patient's sys
tem. Their operation is simple and effectual
By their use healthy bile ia secured. As a con
sequenea. Impaired digestion is restored, food is
properly assimilated, good, healthy blood is the
result, aud, of course, strength is renewed, and
the (.-real process of healing thoroughly inau
gurated. Whole pages oi newspapers could be
filled with testimonials from those who have
ussd the Mandrake Pills and been benefitted by
them. A thousand boxes arc sold to-day where
ten were sold four years ago, aud the "ery is still
they eume." The facilities for manufacturing
then have become too limited, and, as a conse
quence, Dr. Sohenok has been compelled to erect
a greatly enlarged and very magni6ocnt build
ing, to enable him to put up the requisite ma
chinery to supply the constantly increasing de
mand for his great tnedioine.
EUT GOOD HEALTHY BLOOD
is not tbe only requisite. Tho patient needs
strength. The entire system must be kept in
order. Tha weakened, emancipated patientmust
have tlelh pnt upon and strength into his limbs.
To accomplish these great objects Is the special
province ot
"SCHENCK'S SEAWEED TONIC.
Tbe acidity of the stomach, so distressing to
patients, and so detrimental to health, is effectu
ally removed. The alkaline constituents ot the
Seaweed Touic aocompli.-h this. In addition to
this it imports tone and vigor to the system, and
enables the patient to take the necessary iodour
exorcise withoutexhacstion. This is vitality im
portant, though too frequently overlooked ty
medical men. They advise exercise without
having the patient prepared for it. They tell
bim to go out into the oool, rasping air v.hen he
shjuld be exercising moderately where the tcm
petaturc is suited to his diseasud condition, and
this too without giving him those remedies Knich
are calculated to impart strength while they
assist in healing up the ulcerated lungs and
brouclual tubes.
In this brief recital, the publio have an an
swer to the question " Hy are Dr. .5c . .'
mtdicinei $ popular?" The problem is solved
so clearly that none but those who arc wiltuily
blind can 'ail to unde'tuand it. The wonderful
cures that have been effected by Dr. Sohenck's
remedies, are the living, breating and moving
advortisements npon which Dr. Schenck relies.
They furnish the evidence that standa uneou
troverted and uncontrovertible. To them the
rabho is referred, with the most implicit confi-
deuce, and to them Dr. Sohenok now triumpli
mntlj appeale as irrefutable proul oi the oor-
recLcetg of his oft-repeated asset tiou that
coxstmption cas leccri:d.
Dot-tor Schenck's iersonol statement to the
Paculiy of bis own cure was ia thrse words :
"Many years ago I was in the last stages of
consumption, cmfined to rev bed, and at one
time my physician thought I eutd not live a
week ; turn, like a drowning man eatohicg at a
straw, I beard of and obtained the preparations
SLf
h I now offtr to the publio, and they made a
l.-ct cure of me. It sc mod to me that I
could feel them peuetrate i..y whule system.
They soon ripened the matter in ay lungs, and
I would spit up more than a pint of offensive
yellow matter every morning for a long time.
"As toon as that began to subside, my cough,
fever, paiu aud night sweats all began to leave
me. and my appetite became so great that it was
with ditbuulty thai I eouid keep from eating too
much. I soon gamed my strength, aud baft
grown to llesh ever since.
"1 was weighed shortly after my reoovory,"
added tbe aoutor, "then looking like a mere
skeleton, ay weight was but ninety-seven Its.
my present weight is two hundred aud twetity
five (-'ii) pounus, and for years I have enjoyed
uninterrupted health."
Dr. 6chenck has discontinued bis professional
visits to Hew York aud Boston, but atbls ottico
Mo. 1 Korth Sixth street, between the hours of
9 A. M. aud 3 P. M., ha or his son, Dr. J. H.
Bchenjk, Jr., sees patients every Saturday.
Those who wish a thorough examination with
the Respirometer will be charged J. IheKcs-
pirometur declares the azaot condition ot tne
lungs, and patients can readily learn whether
they are eureahlc or not.
The directions tor taking the medi elncs are ad
apted to the intelligence even of a child, fol
low these directions, and kind Sat lire will do
the rest, excepting that in some oases tbe Man
drake Mils are to be taken in increased doses
the three medioines need no othor aooompani
mcnts than the ample iustructions that accom
pany them. First oreate appetite. Of returning
health huiger is tiie most wulcome symptom.
Wbun it couies, ae it will eome,l6t, the despairing
at onee be of good eheer. Good blood at once
follows, the cough loosens, the night sweat is
abated. In a short time both these morbid
symptoms are gone forever.
Dr. Behenck's medicines are eonstantly kept
in tens of thousands of lamllies. As a laxative
or purgative the Mandrake Pills are a standard
preparation; while the Pulmonio Byrup as a

Atukxs, Teun., Sept. 2fi, lSK't
Mr. Kaitsa Dear rjir :
I wish to say a word for your Pain Killine:
Magio Oil.
1 have been a great sufferer from that awful
disease, hick Headache. It generally attacks me
early in the morning, grows in intensity all day,
all uight, and all tiie next day, and generally,
thougn not always, goes off during the seooiid
night. It oonies upou me at least once a month,
aud often two or three times, always sonflnlng
me to my bed for aliout thirty-six to forty hours,
and paiuing me so tjrribly that it seems as if my
head would burst open in spite oi skull and
everything 0U0. A person's hand would be
thrown entirely ofl' by its throbbing. In short I
suffered agony iudescriliable. Our best Physi
ciaus failed in my case, and I have nsed most 0
the popular remedies sold, which are recommend
ed as "sure to cure" just such oases, but they not
only luiled to oure me, but seemed to aggravate
my situation. A few mouths ago, J fortunately
obtained a bottle of your l'aiu Killing Magio
Oil, and as you claim "it works like a chrrm !"
W hen I feel my old plague coming on, I nse the
Magic Oil both externally and internally, freely
and faithfully, and now I do not even have to
stop uiy work, but go about my business as
u?ual.
I e.-inre yon. one fellow-man has been bene
