ot their parts. I may offend some ad
mirers of Edwin Booth in saying this;
but Edwin Booth does not play as well
as he played twenty years ago, and he
is now but a water-color copy of his fa
ther, and even these fainter traits are a
good deal washed out. Lawrence Bar
rett is an artist, but cold and measured
in manner, and without the inspiration
of genius. E. L. Davenport was a finer
actor than either of these ; but he was
often careless, and never knew how to
make the best of the gifts with which
:jie "was .endowed. Joe Jefferson is a
specialist. -Did you ever see him in any
thine except Rip Van Winkle ? If you
have I think you will agree with me,
ithat.be only just passes muster a a

still worse with the women upon the

artificial beauty and their costumes,
that this generation is in danger of not

she should uppear as, she used to, with
the absence of personal charms, and
without the aid of meretricious effects.
Boston had an actress twenty years
ago who at the age of sixty, played
young girls' parts in a way that always
carried audiences completely .with her.

A Scrap of Aboriginal History.
To the Editor of The Observer:
Nearly two hundred years ago, on
western bank ot the Catawba ri vermin
what is now Catawba county, between
the buildinas ot tne Catawba Alan utac
turing Company and Powell & Shu-
ford's cotton factory, (the two firms are
iust one mile apart) a bloody battle was

tawba Indians. The facts as related to
the writer by a descendant of one of the
first settlers cf this section of country,
(John Clarke, Sr.,) were derived by him
from his .father, who had them from
the Catawba Indians themselves. The
tradition runs as follows :
The hunting grounds of the Shawnee
Indians were on the Yadkin river and
its tributaries, while the Catawbas oc
cupied the banks of the Catawba, The
two tribes were frequently ;it war with
each other, and in the course of one of
these petty wars, the Shawnees made
raid on the Catawbas.- Crossing the
river at one of their favorite fords
where Powell fc fcjhulord s factory now
stands, and' striking the old and well
beaten trail, they followed it down the
stream about six miles, to the Great
Bend, or as it is now called, SherrillS'
town, where the Catawbas had a village
or encampment, lhe Shawnees, -com.'
incr linPYiiPftpm v linon tliPir prrprrrv
su -prised and captured a few of the.Ca-
tawuas, witn tneir came, ana reiuruea
with all hate up the stream to the
crossing, where they camped for the
night in a deep ravine, not more th;m
fave hundred yards irom where the lac
tory now stands.
The Catawbas, rallying after their
first surprise, followed on the trail of
their enemy, and came up with them
some time during the night, and at
once attacked them from the side of the
hill overlooking the encampment. The
struggle was short and bloodv, the
Shawnees being totally routed and scat
tered, retreating' as best thev coulc
across the river tMv&rds their villages
oa i ne i auKin.
The Catawbas collected their proper
ty, and buried the dead of both tribes
on the brow o.f the hill overlooking the
battle-ground, the graves consisting ol
two huge piles of water-washed stones,
the Shawnees under one heap and the
Catawbas under the other. I have
spenthours, when a boy, removing the
rocks irom the centre ol , one ot these
heaps of stone, and been rewarded for
my labor by finding a few arrow heads,
or perhaus a stone tomahawk.

Mr. H. R. Stevens : ' r.
Deal Sir About ten years, ago my health failed
through the depleting effects of dyspepsia; irearty
a year later I was attacked by typhoid-fever1 tri ra
worst form. It settled in my back, and took. the.
form of a large deep-seated abscess, which was
fifteen months in gathering. I had two surgipal
oneratioiis bv the best skill in the State, but recetW
edno permanent, cure- 1 suffered great pafattt
times,' and was constantly weakened Dy a prof
discnarge; l also lost small pieces ,qi none ax
ferent times. J " "
Matters ran on thus about "seven years,
1874. when a. faend i iecHiineded A to -go
your office, and talk with you of the vWie of Vege
tine. I did so. and bv your kindness Dassed through

from its effected soil I persevered, And. loon felt it

see the resultelieslrBd ttlLl toad taken it faithful
ly for little more than a year, jwhen the difficulty in
the back was cured; and for nine' months I have
enjoyed the best of health.
I have in that time gained twenty-five pounds of
flesh, being heavier tUAAevef before in pay life, and
I was never more able to perform labor than now.
During the past few weeks I had a scrofulous
swelling as large as my fist gather on another part
of my body.
I took Vegetine faithfully, and it removed it level
with the surface in a month. I think I should have
been cured of my main trouble sooner if I h;.d tak
en larger doses, after having become accustomed
to its effects.
Let your patrons troubled with serofula or kidney
disease understand that it takes time to cure
chronic diseases; and, if they will patiently take
Vegetine, it will, in my judgement, cure them.
With great obligations I am r !
