It is this prevalent and practically

policy of Mri Cleveland's msseage so

with any other country of Europe,
it would have proyoked compara
tively little popular interest. It
would have aroused great public ex
citement; and hence the settlement
of the difficulty amicably would have
been easier. If the improbable, aU
moat impossible, result of the differ

and America, the appeal to arms

of acute bronchitis. I put myself
under medical treatment, and at tho
end of two months was no better.
I found it very difficult to preach,
and concluded to try Ayer's Cherry
Pectoral. The first bottle prave mc
groat relief ; the second, which I am
now taking, has relieved me almost
entirely of all unpleasant symptoms,
and I feel sure that one or two bot

cure. To all ministers suffering from,
