Cleveland, Jan. 2. When John
Wreri, 'a middle-aged Englishman, step
ped out of the Charity Hospital in this
city to-day, it was with something of
the sensation of Rip Van Winkle awak
ing from his long sleep. His story is a
record of one of the most extraordinary
drunken frolics that has ever been

from this city three months ago on a
visit to bim. Previous to his trip he
had not taken any liquor in a number
Of years, and when his friends gave
him a party shortly after his arrival in
England he was with difficulty persua
ded to take wine.
About three weeks ago Wren return
ed, arriving here stupidly intoxicated.
:Being; recognized by an acquaintance,
ne was taken to ins nome, where he
was placed under the care of his wife
and children. On recovering conscious
ness he demanded whiskey,, and this
being refused, he began such an uproar
that to quiet him they r yielded. He
drank the contents of a pint bottle,
which made him so drunk? that there
was no difficulty experienced in convey'
ing bim to the. hospital, where he was
hfdaeedunder- medical .- treatment, Qn
regauHpg cpnseipusqess he asked-ot the
Sisterdftarlty-tehrj: attended him- for
whiskey, and, on being told he could
have none, said :: f( I
' -If you don't give me whiskey 111
holler or else break something."
The Sister's reply was: "It won't hurt
us to have you holler,' and you are able
to pay for anything you break."
Wren then inquired for his English
friends. On being told that he was in
a hospital he named one near London,
and said he supposed that wias where
he was. He spoke severely of his friends
not coming to him while he was ill, and
after a time asked the Sieter to get a
sheet of paper and write a letter for
him to Cleveland, Ohio, in America,
and inform his family of his where
abouts, reqifesting them also to send
him money to pay his passage home.
The Sister asked him if there was a
hospital in Cleveland, and he replied
that there was, describing and locating
Charity Hospital. He was then told
that that was where he was.
" My God !" was his exclamation.
"Have I crossed the Atlantic Ocean
It has been ascertained from letters
received here that Wren was actually
put on board the steamship at Liver
pool drunk, and in this condition came
through to Cleveland. His friends had
previously bought him a through ticket.

the spaa of existence allotted to a naturally delicate

which we Wye dally proof. The ahd re

Every Moment's Wonderful Work.
Every moment that we live the work of destruc
tion never ceases among what Is scientifically call
ed "the tissues" of which our bodies are composed.
Every moment, if we are In health, the ffi-k of re
pairing this destructive process goes on with equal
pace. When the vital force Is great, more vigor is
given to the blood and muscular fibre than the or
dinary wear and tear of existence uses up. When
the vital force falls from any cause, there ensues a
wasting away, which if not arrested, ends in decay
and death. .Physicians all declare that, when these
symptoms of decline set In. the only certain reme
dy is Cod Liver Oil. But their patients, with al
most equal unanimity, say that Cod Liver Oil is "so
nasty" they cannot take It The only resource left
ts to obtain Soott's Emulsion of the Oil with the
Hypopbosphltes of Xime and Sdda, This Is alto
gether free from disagreeable taste and odor, and
la an unequalled tonic, for the nerves and brain.

Dear Sir Three years aeo I was suffering terribly
with Inflammatory Rheumatism. Our minister's
wife advised me to take VEGETINE. After tak
ing one bottle, I was entirely relieved. This year,
feeling a return of the disease, I again commenced
taking it, and am being benefited gre itly. It also
greatly improves my ingestion.

Mr. H. R. Stevens:
In 1 8 1 2 your Vegetlne was recommended to me,
and yielding to the persuatlons of a friend,
I consented to try it. At the time I was suffering
from general debility and nervous, prostration,
superinduced by overwork and Irregular habits.
Its wonderful strengthening and curative proper
ties seemed to affect my debilitated system from
the first dose; and under Its persistent use I rapid
ly .-ecovered, gaining more than usual health and
good feeling, since then I have not: hesitated to
give Vegetlne my most unqualified Indorsement,
as being a safe, sure and powerful agent in promot
ing health and restoring the wasted system to new
life and energy. Vegetine Is the only medicine I
use; and as long as I live I never expect to find a
better. Yours truly, W. H. CLARK,
