Dear Slr-About ten years-ago my health falled
through the depleting effects' or dysjwpsla; 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 skill In the State, but receiv
ed no permanent cure. I suffered great pain at
times, and was constantly weakened by a profuse
discharge . also lost small pieces of bone at dif
Matters ran on thus about seven years, all May,
1874, when a friend recommended me to go to
your office, and talk with you of the virtue of vege
tine. I did so, arid by your kindness passed through
your manufactory, noting the ingredients, &c, by
which your remedy is produced.
By what I saw and heard I gained some confi
dence in Vegetine. s - ts"
I commenced taking It soon after, but felt worse
from its effects;: soil 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.
1 have in that time earned twenty-five pounds 01
flesh, being heavier than ever before in my life, and
1 was never more awe to penorm laoor man now.
Durum the oast 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 had tak
en larger doses, after havlnsr become accustomed
to Its effects. ;

To man's Illusion given,'
Once on a time, in another Hemisphere, "Man's
Illusion" was checkmated and fanaticism stamped
out to 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 Nieve, 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 " all 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
the latter conflicts. He had Peter'd out some time
previous. The present Hermit who runs the
; "RISING SUN"
is pleased to say that he has received his stock
since Christinas, and has now on hand FERRY'S
CELEBRATED GARDEN SEEDS (warranted to
come up without the crusade of your neighbor's
chickens), to addition to his stock of Candles, Nuts
Raisins, Coffee, Teas, Sugar, Molasses, Flour.Lard,
Sardines, Canned Fmlta, Applea and Orangea. In
fact everything kept in a Confectionery and Gro
