From a Gentleman Known and Hon
ored from the Atlantic to the
Messrs. Wekks k Ton in. Wholesale Drugglats,
Boston, Mass.; Gentlemen, I hae for some months
felt it a duty that I owed to Buffering humanity to
write you, stating tbe great benefit that I have derived
from the use of SAVronD's Uadical Ci'bk ron Ca
TAnnu. For more than 20 3 cars I have been afflicted
with this very troublesome complaint. I have tried
all the remediea that I could find, bnt without mate
rial or permanent benefit. Last fall the disease had
arrived at that state that I mutt have relief or die.
The entire membranous system bad become so in
flamed, and the atomach au disordered, that it was a
doubtful matter whether I could go to the Pacific
coast, or if I did e whether I should live to oume
back or not. I saw an advertliemtnt of this medi
cine, and although being very incredulous about spe
cifics or nostrums of any kind, yet In sheer despera
tion I tried this, and at once waa benefited by it. The
changes of climate, a chronic disease of the liver, and
my age over 70 may prevent my entire restora'Ion,
but tbe benefit I derive from its daily use Is to me in
valuable, and I am hoping to be completely cured, and
at last arrive at a respectable old age I
If this statement of my case can be of any service to
those afiljctcd as I have been, and enable you to bring
this remedy into more general use, especially on tbe
Pacific coast (where It is much needed), my object In
writing this note will bo attained.
Very truly yours, HENRY WELLS,
Aurora, N. V., June, lb"6. of Wells, Fargo & Co.
IT la with tbe greatest pleasure that we present to
the public this hearty endorsement of BAvroftis
Radical Core ron Catabeh, by Henry Wells, Esq.,
of Wells, Fargo and Co.s Express. Tbe position this
gentleman has for so many years occupied In our
business world, and especially In connection with the
development of that golden country, the Pacific coast,
has made bis name known and respected throughout
the land. Uls earnest desire that those whoknow
him, and are sufferers from this disease, may be In
duced to use it we trust may be gratified. Those who
do not know him (and tbey are few) must now feel
convinced of tbe great value of this remedy. It Is be
yond all question the most successful ever compound
ed for the treatment of Catarrh. It is prescribed by
our best physicians. It Is recommended by our lead
ing apothecaries, and teatimoniala from alt parts of
the United States attest the esteem In which ft Is held
by the thousands who have been enabled by Its naeto
escape the frightful consequences that follow a total
neglect of this prevalent distaae.

certain, and permanent cure for Catarrh of every
form, and la the moat perfect remedy ever devised.

cally by Insulation, and constitutionally by internal
administration. Lrcally applied rttitf is mifanraxe

of every feeling of heaviness, obstruction, dullness or
dizziness. Constitutionally adminlstsred it renovate
the blood, purifies It or tbe acid poison with which it
Is always charged In Catarrh, stimulates tbe stomach,
liver and kidneys, perfects digestion, makes new
blood, and .rmiu tbe formation of sound, healthy
tissue, and finally obtains complete control over the
disease. Tbe remarkable curative powers, when all
other remedies utterly fall, of Santo no's Radical
Compare attested by thousands who gratefully re
commend It to fellow sufferers. No statement is made
regarding It that cannot be substantiated by tha most
respectable and reliable references.

A JLrffeiiil of tbo Xiuir.
Seventeen hundred and eeTentjMeTen!
Fair and pure is the toIco of heaven,
And aoftlr the sunlight float, above
The calm old City of Brotherly Love.
Betsey Rosa in her homespun dress
lias paused for a moment of Idleness t
The little ahop with the sanded floor
Looks bright from the half.way open door ;
But Betaey watches with anxtoua eyes
A cloud of doit that the seea arise.
Adown the street there's a goodly stir
A party of horsemen are seeking her.
"Mistress Betsey," the first one cries
Low on his forehead the cocked hat Ilea
"In tbe name of Congreas wo bid you leave
Yonr other labor, a flag to weave!
"A field of blue yon aball light with stars;
Of silk prepare you alx milk white bars.
"Till with the crimson they He between,
The goodly number shall be thirteen."
Then needle and acissors Betsey sought :
With skillful flngera the flag was wrought;
a And It wared aloft In many a fight,
Where the watchword rang for "God and Right!"
Then the years went by, and Betsey's soul
Had fltd ere the war-drum ceaaed to roU;
And Betsey's daughter atood by the door
Of the httle ahop with the aanded floor.
"Give us more flsg.," the soldiers cried ;
"IVe hare naught but rags where the atara are dyed
With the blood of foes, and tho milk white bara
Are torn, like our breasts, with ragged acara,"
But the maiden said, "Do you know tbe FrlcndaT
They weave no banners for warlike enda.
"I can weave no flags that may wave In atrlfe
Where brother la seeking a brother, life."
Then silent the veterana turned away
From that quiet maid In tbe robe of Cray,
Who after them closed the heavy door
Of tbe little shop with the sanded floor.
Eighteen hundred and seventy-filx:
In wild confusion the colors mis,
And the various hues of the rainbow play
Over tho city ao grim and gray ;
A myriad bannera they wave aboa
The calm olJ City of Brotherly Xvr,
And Bilk and satin and Quaker drcaa,
They meet a nation's Joyousness.
The simple banner that Betsey Rose
Wrought In tbe days of woe and loss
Feeble work of a woman'a hand,
Yet mighty aymbol of Frredom'a land
Though bathed in blood in the year, cf old.
Now bright with .atln and bound with gold.
Waves over tbe land where equal, free,
Men Joy In the light of Liberty.
Ah! Quaker maiden, where then were this,
Had no ear thrilled with a bullet's hiss,
No brave heart dared in the duat to lie,
That the atar. and stripes might float on high ?
In the midst of battle none dared to drag
To the earth that lorn and homespuu flag.
It waa borne aloft through blood and tears,
Till now, in the lapse of s hundred years.
In the City of Penn It floats uofurled,
While the myriad flag, of s Joyous world.
In tbe quiet bush when all quarrels cease,
Entwine their folds In the clasp of Feaee.

As far its bo was concerned, bo seemed to
bavo very llltlo attachment fur bis native.
country. Indeed, be never evinced very
much uf an attachment for any placo or
anybody. Wo bad been together tbo great
er part of ten years. Ho possessed a sin
gular Influence over mo. I hardly know
what I would not have dono for Relnbart.
Hut bo was In dipo9ltloti nol the least dem
onstrative; and whether be over saw any
attraction In me, I cannot tell. I simply
Imagined to, because tlmo woroaway with

A profound Interest In metaphysics ab
sorbed his whole being; aud through this
channel he bad crept iuto tbe Rood graces
of the collego authority. During bis long
study upon this subject, he bad woven
about himself all tbo labyrlnthino meshes
of tho subtle Gorman philosophy. Though
only a tutor of twcuty-llve, Iho doctors or
metaphysics touched their bats to him ; all
tbe students bowed before him ; and I I
felt sorry for him.
WhyT I can hardly toll. But ho had
grown thin and pale and nervous within
tbo last year; and I could not help wish
ing that all Germany was as Ignorant of
psychology as In tho days wbou tho Sua
bUns danced their dryad dances upon tho
very spot whero now the great University
whoso walls lifted up Its lowers this great
University whoso walls wero built not of
stono from tho quarry, but of tbo labors of
many lives, somo of whoso proudest pinna
cles, reaching into a light of dazzling splen
dor, bad been reared only by tho everlast
ing sacrlflco of reason.
A vague Idea had floated Into my mind,
but so very terrlblo It was that I had never
dared acknowledge lis exlslenco oven to
mysolf; nevertheless, it oppressed ino con
stantly. Finally, it grew Into such a bur
den that I could bear It no longer, and
so made up my mind to do what llltlo I
could to relievo myself at any rate. A plan
occurred to mo whereby I might accom
plish my cbtof design, which was to draw
bhn away from this study that was con
suming blm; to draw him away from bis
myriad theories Into life. But befuro I bad
said a word, while I was still meditating
bow It could best be dune, Relnbart set
tled the trouble himself.
I never was moro astonished or more
ploased than when ho proposed tho very
thing I bad be'ou trying to broach, that the
two of us should speud the next six months
in traveling. What bad suggested it to
blm, or wbat bis reasons were I never ask
ed. Had Aeany suspicions of this strnago
fancy that I would not admit to myself,
and yet had been vainly striving to drlvo
from my mind T Since then I bavo some
tlmcj thought so, and sometimes thought
not. To tbo proposition I consented eager
ly, and did my best In hastening all the ar
rangements j therefore no time was lost be
fore we found ourselves en route for the
south of Europe.
As I have said, Itolnbart waa not In tho
least demonstrative. Very likely his nat
ural reserve bad been greatly increased by
bis sedentary life. But I noticed early In
our trip, that he seemed laboring to throw
off bis abstracted manner. 1 fait cuoourng-
cd, notwithstanding I know It was an effort
to blm, and determined, not only that ho
should see something of tbo world, but,
what would bo of much moro bonetlt, that
ho should soo something of society.
In tho beautiful Italian scenery my own
spirits roso perceptibly. Tbo great load
which had been burdening mo lossoncd
and Qnally raised Itself altogether, as I saw
this shadow of tho German University that
had. been resting on my companion break.
But I know now I was mistaken. It was
only tho battalion preparing for action;

American gentlemen residing in 1'loronco
bad shown us not only attention but hos
pitality. Ono thing I noticed quickly, that
Iteinhart carod almost nothing fur tho so
ciety of ladles. Ho endured it, never sought
It. Tho most beautiful faces bo would pass
without any notice, or with merely an in
different Rlance. I was sorry for this, be
cause horo was a channel I had thought,
wherein might bo turned Iho cuircnt of bis
Wilh this subject still uppermost In my
mind, I determined ono morning I would
bring my sounding-Hue into play, If It wero
only on account of my own satisfaction.
Wo wero sitting upon tbe deep sill of the
open window, smoking our cigars and en
joying tbe uller tranquillity ot the southern
day, whan I asked, indifferently, as If tbo
question bad been wholly unpremeditat
ed, "Itelnharl, wore you cvor in love 7"
Ho lookod up quickly, waited a moment,
as though at (list ho had not exactly under

Now, I knew very well ho never had
been ; for, as I bavo said, tho last leu years
wo bad spent together; but at present I
was bent upon discovering what probabil

"Itelnharl, do you think you ever will bo

street, turned out of sight, A small bird,

Into song, but, checking tho strain almost
in tbo first note, It flew away, settling, a
mero speck, upon tbo northern spire of the
Cathedral. Then Itelnharl said, as though

Yes, I heard aright. Possibly wo wero

Theso affinities may possibly meet in this

not call It marriage. It Is tbo fusing to

to u fever, for his eyes wero bright and rest
less, and tho blood surged In waves across
bis usually colorless face. With a rough
band, I bad struck tho chord whoso unde
cided vibrations bad, a month ago, appalled
me. The great burden which bad so op
pressed me settled down again heavier
than before. It was not so much what ho
had said as tho expression of bts face that
(tiled mo anew with anxiety. And strug
gling under this burden, I made n poor at

"Well, It Is an absnrd idea," I retorted,
"and sounds exactly like somo of your

In anything but fantasies ; and I would
advlso you to let them alone."
This was hardly wlso on my part. I
should not bavo allowed myself to express
any impatience when I saw it excited him,
and only augmented wbat I was striving
to allay, Tbo blood rushed again over his

If tho strain was ever finished, we did not

tbe vory ground. Somo object flew swift

tha floor. I sprang up and shut the win

with a black cloud, and from tbo carpet at
my feet I picked up a dead bird, a small
bird with rod plumes in Its wings.
Tho storm passed over In less than half

Do not lay out In detail a "course of read
ing." Probably you would not follow It,
and tho moral effect of making a plan and
giving it up is injurious. Bui tbcro Is an
other reason for my advice. When you bo
como Interested In a subject, then Is tho
time to follow It up, and read everything
you can get hold of about it. What you
read when thus keenly Interested you will
remember and make your own, aud that Is
the secret ofacqulring knowledge ; lo study
a thing when your mind Is awake and eager
to know more. No mattor if It leads yon
away from tbe book with which you set
out ; aud if it seuds you to another subject,
so that you novcr again open the original
book, so much tbe better ; you aro eager,
you aro learning, and tbe object of roadlng
Is to learn, not lo got through a certain
number of books,
"Wbat wo read with Inclination," said
wise old Dr. Johnson, "makes a strong Im
pression, Wbat wo read as a task Is of lit
When you read a book that Interests you,
you naturally wish lo know moro of Its
anther. That Is tho tlmo to mako his nc
qualutance. Read hi; life, or an account of
blm in an encyclopedia; look ovor bis oth
er writings, and becomo familiar with blm
Then you have really added something to
your knowledge If you fettered yourself
wilh a "course," you could not do this, aud
beforo you finished a bpok, you would
havo rorgolton tbo special points which In
tcrcsled you as you went through.
You think that history Is dull reading,
perhaps. I'm afraid that Is because you
bavo a dull way of reading it, not realizing
that il Is a scries of true and wonderful
stories of men's lives, beyond comparison
moro marvelous aud Interesting than tho
fictitious lives wo read In novels. Tho first
pagos aro usually dry, I admit, and I ad
iso you not to look al them till you fool a
deslro to do so; but select somo person,
and follow out tha story of his lire, or somo
event, and read about that, and I assure
you, you wilt find a now lifo in tho old
After gelling, lu this way, a fragmentary
acquaintance with a nation, its prominent
men and striking events, you will doubt
less feel anxious to know its whole story,
and then, reading It with Inters!, you will
remember what you read.
But Ihcro are other subjects in wbtch you
may bo Interested. You wish (irsl to know
about the row great books and authors gen
erally regarded and referred lo as tbo foun
taln-hcadsof the world's literature. It Is
impossible, in a littlo "talk" like this, to
glvo definite directions for gaining a knowl
edge of these. Needs vary In almost every
case, and a book lhat might wlsoly be se
lected for one girl, might bo a very poor
choice for anolher. Almost every ono can
turn to somo Judicious relattvo or friend
who, at least, can start her In a good direc
tion. Onco started, tho way is delightful
and easy. Tbero aro many entrances into
tho gtcat templo of Ilteraturo you need not
go In by all of them.
Thoro aro many well known and often
quoted authois, concerning whom yon will
wish to be informed, even if you never
read their works. You want to know
when they lived and wbat tboy wrote. The
world of books is too largo for any ono to
know thoroughly; you must select from
tho wido rango what suits your taste, and
be content lo havo an outside, or title-page,
kuoniedgoof tbo rest.
Above all, In your reading you want to
avoid becoming narrow and one-sided.
Head both sides of a question. If you read
a eulogistic biography or a person, read al
so, if possible, one written from an oppo
site stand-point. You will find that no ono
Is wholly bad, nor wholly good, and you
will grow broad In your views.
But perhaps you.don't know how
to read by subjects. Let mo tell you. Sup
pose you see an allusion to something lhat
interests you say Sir Walter Raleigh;
look for bis uamo in an encyclopedia or
biographical dictionary (wbich you will
find In ovcry tolerable village library).
Reading orbim, you will become Interest
o J in Queen Elizabeth ; look her up, in the
samo books, and In English history ; ob
scrvo tbe noted men of her reign, look them
up, read their lives; lead historical novels
aud poems of her times ; look at tho tablo of
contents of magazines and review.", and
read essays on tbe subject. You see tbe
way open before you. Once mako a start,
aud Ibere Is scarcely an end to tho paths
yon will wish lo follow.
If you bavo no special subject of Interest,
tako up an encyclopedia, slowly turn tbe
leaves, aud read any Item that attracts you,
not forcing yourself to lead anything. If
you have any life in you you will find
something to interest you ; then you bavo
your subject. Ifltissome historical per
son or event, proceed us I have already
Indicated ; ir scientific, overhaul tho dic
tionaries of science, lives of scientific men,
discussion of disputed points, etc.; if geo
graphical, turn to r gazetteer, books of
traiels, etc. Ono book will lead to another.
Your memory Is bad, perhaps;
hut I cau tell you two secrets that Will cure
tbo worst memory. One I mentioned above:
to read a subject when strongly Interested.
Tho other i, lo not only road, but Ibink.
When you havo read a paragraph or a page,
stop, close tho book, and try to remember
the ideas on that page, and not only recall
them vaguely In your mind, but put them
into words and speak tbem out. Faithful
ly follow tbeso two rules, and you have tbe
golden keys of knowledge. Besides inat
tentive reading, there are other things inju
rious lo memory. One is the babitof skim
ming over newspapers, Hems of news,
smart reflections, fashion notes, all In a
confused jumble, never to bo thought of
agaiu, thus diligently cultivating a bablt of
careless reading, hard lo break. Another
Is tbe reading of trashy novels. Nothing
Is so fatal to reading with profit as the hab
it of running through story after story, and
forgetting them as soon as read. I know a
gray-haired women, a life-long lover of
books, who sadly declares that her mind
has been ruined by such reading.
A help lo memory Is repetition. Noth
ing is so certain lo keep your French fresh,
and ready for use, as to havo always on
band an Interesting story In that language,
to take up for ten minutes every day. In
that case, you will not "forget your French"
with the majority of your schoolmates.
