AN EXCELLENT MEDICINE.
Springfield, O., Feb. 28, 1877. ':
. This is to certify that I have used VEGETINE,
monufactured by H. B. Stevens, Boston, Mass., for
Rheumatism and General Prostration of the Nerv
ous System, with good success. I recommend
VEGETINE as an excellent medicine for such
complaints. Yours very truly,
C. W. VANDEGBJFT.
Mr. Vandegrift, of the firm of Vandegrift & Huff
man, Is a well-known business man of this place,
having one of the largest stores In Springfield, O.
OTJR MINISTER'S WIFE.
Louisville, Ky., Feb. 16, 1877.
Mr. H. B. Stevens:
Dear Sir Three years ago 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 greatly. It also
greatly improves my digestion.
.: Respectfully,
Mrs. A. BALLARD,
1011 West Jefferson Street.
SAFE AND SURE.
Mr. H. R. Stevens:
In 1872 your Vegetine was recommended to me,
and yielding to the persuations of a friend,
I consented to try it At the time I was suffering
Irom 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 aeoovered, gaining more than usual health and
good feeling, since then I have not hesitated to
give Vegetine 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,
120 Monterey Street Alleghany, Penn.
VEGETINE
The t Dllowtag letter from Rev. G. W Mansfield,
formerly pastor of the Methodist Episcopal church,
Hyde Park, and at present settled In Lowell, must
convince everyone who reads his letter of the won
derful curative qualities of Vegetine as a thorough
cleanser and purifier of the blood.
Hyde Park, Mass., Feb. 15, 187a
Mr. H. R. Stevens:
Dear Sir About ten years ago my health failed
through the depleting effects of dyspepsia; nearly
a year later I was attacked by typhoid-fever in Its
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 surgical
operations by the best skin In the State, but receiv
ed no permanent cure. I suffered great pain at
times, and was constantly weakened by a profuse
discharge. I also lost small pieces of bone at dif
ferent nines.
Matters ran on thus about seven years, till May,
1874, when a friend recommended me to go to
your office, and talk with yon of the virtue of Vege
tine. I did so, and by your kindness passed through
your manufactory, noting the Ingredients, &c., by
which your remedy Is produced.
By what I saw and beard I gained some confi
dence in Vegetine.
I commenced taking it soon after, but felt worse
from Its effects; still I persevered, and soon felt it
was benefitting me In other respects Yet I did not
see the results I desired till I had taken it faithful
ly for little more than a year, when 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 than ever before In my 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 armonth. I think I should have
been cured of my main trouble sooner If I hfid tak
en larger doses, after having become accustomed
to its effects.
Let your patrons troubled with scrofula 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
Yours very truly,

HE "RISING SUN."
According to the command of Joshua of old al-
though repudiated by the M Jasper Philosophy " of
the new, is now standing stGL at the Old Place, on
Trade Street, opposite , the : Market House, plus
Hornet Fire Engine Han, where the light of reason
llumlnate8 the snmranulng atmosphere, which In-
veste all things with the glow of inspiration, and
the world no longer seems
" A fleeting show,
To man's illusion given.'
Once on a time. In another Hemisphere, "Man's
illusion" was checkmated and fanaticism stamped
out In the Holy Wars of the Cross vs. the Crescent,
(the Crusades). Two million men were killed and
a pyramid was erected from the bones from one
battle-field alone, near Nleve, by Solyman, as a
monument to their fanaticism, and the Saracens
drank beer out of their skulls. Since then, fol
lowing the Reformation, in Christian conflicts (so
called,) fifty million more were slain " aU by Di
vine appointment," making probably In all, 100,
000,000 who have victimized themselves to their
faith. Peter the Hermit had nothing to do with
ihe latter conflicts. He had Peter'd out some time
previous. The present Hermit who runs the
"RISING SUN"
to pleased to say that he has received his stock
since Christmas, and has now on hand FERRY'S
CELEBRATED GARDEN SEEDS (warranted to
come up without the erwade of your neighbor's
chickens), In addition to his stock of Candles, Nuts
Raisins, Coffee, Teas, Sugar, Molasses, Flour.Lard,
