The annexed card from Miss Jane Starncs
fully explains itself, und while many will re
gret the necesssity which prompts her to
retire ns a nurse for the sick, they can testify
to her great efficiency in that enpneity :
Editort LaurcnsvilU Herald:
I ask a small spaco in your paper to
say to my friends and the public that I
am necessitated, from long service and
advancing ago, to retire from tbo respon
sible duty and labor as a nurse for the
sick. For noarly a quarter of a century
I have been almost unremittingly cm
ployed in that capacity, and for tbo past
seven months have had only two weeks
rest, and been absent from my homo
nearly the entire time. Since I began to
nurse tho sick?nearly twenty-four years
ago?I have on several different occa
sions watched at tho bedside and minis
tered to tho sick for forty-eight hours,
consecutively, (in one or two cases oven
longer than this) without rest or sleep.
Of eourso these long watches were not,
required of mo by tbo Physicians in at
tendance, or by tho frionds of tho pa
tients, but stich was my anxiety and
sympathy for the sick that I was un
willing to leave them until forced to do
so from sheer exhaustion. How efficient
and successful I have been in my bum
ble capacity as a nurse, I leave othors to
For the reasons above stated, there
fore, I feel it due to my own health to re
quest that I be allowed to take the much
needed rest and recuperation, at least
until auch time ns I shall fool able to re
sumo a labor which I regarded a duty
rathor than ono of love. And least of all
have I labored for the pecuniary reward
that resulted, though I received all tho
compensation I ever required.
Permit me to say, in conclusion, that
I havo been trented everywhere, and by
all among whom I have beon thrown
during a long scries of years, with tho
utmost kindness and consideration ; and
I shall over hold the many acquaintances
and frionds I havo formed in high es
teem and fond recollection.

THEY ALL. SAY
That for purifying the blood, strengthening the appetite, re
moving that tired feeling, and building up the system, Ayer's
Sarsaparilla is the best. No other blood medicine is so rapid
in its effects nor so permanent in its results.
" I was a great sufferer from a low
comlltioQ of the blood and general de
bility, becoming finally so reduced that
I was unlit for work. Nothing that I
did for the complaint helped me so
much as Ayer's Sarsaparilla, a few bot
tles of which restored me to health and
strength. I take every opportunity to
recommend this medicine in simitar
cases."?C. Kvlck, 14 Kast Main at.,
"Sometime ago I found my system
entirely rvti down. I hM a feeling of
constant fatigue and languor and very
little ambition for any kind of effort. A
friend advised meto try Ayer's Sarsapa
rilla, which I did with the best results.
It has done mo more good than all
other medicines I have ever used."?F.
Mellows, 162 Broadway, Chelsea, Mass.
"My constitution is naturally delicate,
but sonio time ago I became so weak
and languid that I was unablo to per
form my work, which Is mental. A fine
eruption, which gavo much troublo and
distress, made Its appearance on my
skin. The physicians' prescriptions
proving of no avail. I was Induced to
try Ayer's Sarsaparilla, and soon my
strength returned and my skin resumed
its natural appearance. For u tonic,
blood-purifier, and general health
restorer, I can heartily recommend
Ayer's Sarsaparilla." ? Miss Maggie
O'Neill, E. Nodoway, Iowa.
" I use Ayer's Sarsaparilla with great
satisfaction in my family, and can rec
ommend It to all who have tho caro of
young and dellcato children." ?Mrs.
Joseph McComber, Brooklyn, N. Y.
"About a year ago I began using Ayer's
8arsaparllla as a remedy for debility and
neuralgia resulting from malarial exposure
In the army. I was In a very bad condi
tion, but six bottles of the Sarsaparilla,
with occasional doses of Ayer's Pills, have
greatly improved my health. I am now
able to work, and feel that I cannot say
too much for your excellent remedies."?
F. A. Finkbam, South Meluncus, Me.
" I have suffered for years from a low
condition of the blood and general debil
ity, and have had such severe pains In my
back and shoulders that It was Impossible
at times to do any work. I was greatly
belped by a tow bottles of Ayer's Sarsa
parilla, and take every opportunity to
speak of my cure to tboso who are afflicted
as I was."?William F. Stearns, 9 Free at.,
'Ayer's Sarsaparilla has a well-deserved
reputation in this locality for restoring to
healthy, vigorous action the.vital organs
of the body when they have become weak
ened or exhausted. I have used it In my
family for this purpose, especially after
tho system had becomo depleted from
malarial attacks."? Charles C. Hamilton,
"After years of experience as a druggist,
during which time I have soon, handled,
and heard of blood-purifiers almost with
out number, I can conscientiously say that,
for genuine merit, I regard Ayer's Sarsa
parilla as without a rival. This medicine
has always inspired and deserved confi
dence, and at no time has it ever had so
great-a hold upon tho publlo as at tho
present day."?George Linnett, Dispensing
Chemist, 49 Sherman ave., Nowark, N. J.
"Ayer's Sarsaparilla, for building up the general health, stands at tho head of tho
list."?James M. Williams, M. D., Sunnier, Ark.
"I have for many years recommended Ayer's Sarsaparilla as being superior to all other
blood-purifiers."?Abram Llvezey, M. D., Yardloy, Pa.
