story ijrtold $Jby.-l the Christian woman
tn whom h baDoeoed. in her own Ian
'About the month of January. 18G3, 1
was living in Connecticut, alone with two
little boys, one of them. . four years , old,
and the other, a year and a half old. My,
husband was away in the eerviee of his
country; ! When the coldest 'weather
came I was nearly out of wood. I went
down into the village one day to try and
get some, but tried in vain ; so many men
were away laitue army tnat pip. was
f carceH ! Very little wood came into mar
ket, arid hbge living on the main street
got all that came, while those who lived
outsidVthe Village, could get none. . 1
tried: to buy arqoarter of accord from two
or three merchant?, but could not get any.
One of lhem told me he could not get
what he wanted or bis " own, family. -
Another saidJie was not willing to yoke
up his team for so small a quantity ; but
as I onTjKhad:a dollar and seventy -five
cents J jeoujd not bny any more, and so
I was obliged to go home without any
I went back to my little ones, feeling
very iad. Bat while I eat tbere almost
ready 'to cry,; the words of Abraham came
into my mind, "Jehovah-Jireb, the Lord
will provide." Then I went up to my
chamber t There I kneeled down and I-
told God of my trouble, and asked" him
to help-me and send the relief that we
needed Then I went to the window and
waited,-looking down the street, expect
ing to'isee the wood coming. After wait
ing awbile'without seeing any come, my
faith began to fail. I said to myaelf,
"The Ljord did provide for Abraham, but
lie won't , 'provide for me." Oar last
ttickof wood was pnt in the stove. It
was too cold to keep the children in the
house witbout fire? T got the children's
clothes out, and thought I would take

wood corning'down the road towards onr
little house ; Can it be for us ? I asked
myself.,. .Presently I saw the. wagon turn
off the road and come op towards our
door.;,. Then I was puzzled to know bow

"I did not order it, and I cannot pay
for it," was-my reply. -
"Njaver mind, ma'am," 'said . he, "a
friend ordered it, and it's all paid for."
Then-he unhitched the oxen from the
wagoif and gave them some hay to eat.
Wheri this was done, he asked for aaw

load was cut and split, and piled away in

Induced by friends to try yonr Veobtijib, and I think
it the best medicine for weakness of the Kidneys I
ever used. I hsTe tried many remedies for this com
plaint, and never found so much relief as from the

whole system. Many of my acrjaaintstit ss have ta

bave suffered great pain in my bark, hips and side,
with great dilflcnlty in pat-sing: nrine, which was of
ten, and in very small quantities, frequently accom
panied with blood and excrntiating pain.
I bave faithfully tried most of the popnlar reme
dies recommended for my complaint ; I have been
under the treatment of some of the most skillful
physicians in Boston, all of whom pronounced my
case incurable. This was my condition when I wss
advised by a friend to try the V'eoetine, and I conld
see the good effects from the first dose I took, and
from that moment I kept on improving until I was
entirely cured, taking in all, I should think, about
s'z bottles. It is in deed a valuable medicine and it
I should be afflicted again in the same wav,' I would

When eight or nir.e years old I was afflicted with

All kinds of operations were performed on my eyes,

times In an ajrprsv.Vted way.
Last Summer I was f torn some canse weak In my
spine and kidneys, and it was at times very hard to
retain the nrlne. Seolne your advertisement in the
Commercial, I bonjtht a bottle or VEOETINE, and
commenced using according to directions. In two
or three days I obtained great relief. After using
four or five bottles I noticed it had a wonderful eff

On the 16th day of November, and in the
city of Raleigh, the undersigned will commence
the publication of
a Daily and Weekly Democratic newspaper.
Of long experience in their profession as ed
itor", respectively of the Fayelteville Observer
and the Wilmington Journal, they do not arlect
o doubt the soundness of the general judgment
which assigns them ability to-furnish a news
paper suited to the needs and adapted to the
tastes of the people of Xorth Carolina. Differ
ing in politics in the olden time, there wa nev
er a difference between the Observer and the
Journal in zeal for the interest of Xorth Caro
lina. To promote the one, and to uphold and
add to the other, will be the object of The
Of very decided opinions on questions of pub
lic interest, and apt to give those opinion
plain expression, they deem it the first duty of
a newspaper to furnish its readers with the in
formation necessary to the formation of their
opinions to publish all "the news;" and their
purpose is to make The Observer now, of
old, a truthful, accurate, condensed history of
the times in which we live. It was thus that
"the old Observer won its hold upon the peo
ple of North Carolina, enjoying the affection of
Us party friends, receiving the respect and con
fidence of its bitterest political foes, and com
manding in its comparatively isolated location
a circulation larger than has ever been attained
by an other Xorth Carolina newspaper, and it
is thus, by like dignity, and fairness that the
editors of The Observer, transfer to the State
Capital, hope it will deserve, and soon equal,
and then surpass, its former circulation and
It will be their high aim to deserve the pub
lic confidence by earnest efforts to promote the
public welfare, first and foremost of North Car
olina, next of all the Southern Slates and,
finally, and through these of the whole Union.
They think that this can only be effected by
the prevalence of Democratic principles, and
and the dismissal of the Radical party from the
places and power which they have so greatly
abused and under whose baleful rule the South
has been outraged and the whole country has
been impoverished and disgraced.

"MAIfE TOUR OWN FERTILIZER,
.'" ' "-
Or Home-Made Fertilizer,
Yon ean with these chemicals make yonr
own .Fertilizer at home, and thereby saVe
the mouey paid fur high-priced commercial
Guanos The cost i about one-fourth th
price of commercial fertilisers. We will
show by the fallowing certificates, from
parties who have used chemicals far the
past three years, jhat the result Is much
greater and therefore more satisfactory.
Four hundred pounds gf this compost
sown broadcast over one acre will produce
you a double yield of wheat, and two hun
dred pounds per acre, under corn planted
.exactly 'tb re feet each way, will give fiftj
bushels of shelled corn to the acre ou tht
poorest land. A
One horse in one year will produce enough
manure, wbictrwith the aid of our chemicals
making it a coi ceutrated manure, to
over twenty acres of laud.
These chiemcals should be bonght in Aq
gnstand S' ptember for wheat crop, and from
December to March for cotton and corn, as
it svuires from thirty to sixty days-to make
the compost perfect. EPRead the following

1 used this year two tons of Harm' Empire
Comjost, and am ro well pleaded with it that I
consider the formula alone worth $100 to me,
and I shall use a double quantity the next Mea
son. The cheai ness of it,' and the general util
iiy, makes it indispensable to farmers. I nev
er expect to use any other kind, -

I certify that I have usedHarris' Empire
Comport, and lind that it paid me as well as

This is to ceriil'y that I have used five tons
of the Uarris Empire Comost this year, and
find it equally as good if not better "than any
commercial Fertilizer! have used or noticed
useo, even at uie cost oi sixty uoiiars per ten,
making an increase of about 100 per cent, on
tubble lands." I expect to buy more largely
next year. F. A. ARCHIBALD.

This i to ceHify that I have used Harris'
Empire Compost and am very well pleased
wiih it, as it not only presents rust, but a as
gonl as any of the highpriced Guanos, the
cost per Ion making it the cheapest Fertilizer

This is to certify that I used Harris' Empire
ComjMjst last yearon ray isnd for Wheat, snd
though I did not give it a fair trial, as I left
out one of the ingredients, but must say that
where it was used my wheat waTPnever better
tnd where I did not use it I find that it is very
indifferent. 1 shall use six tons this Spring.
I consider the formula invaluable to farmers

Messrs. Wilson & Dlaek Gentlemen : It
gives me much pleasure to slate that I used the
Compost bought of you last Winter, and must
say that I am highly pleased with it. I used
it on an old broom sedge field that would pro
duce nothing, and must say the result is aston
ishing. 1 considerjan invaluable compost, and
ust the thing needed to bring out our old,
worn-out lands. Yours, verv respectfullv.

I take pleasure in statins; to ray brother far
mers all over the country that I used, last year,
Harris' Empire Compost, under both corn and
rot ton, and the result was astonishing to all my
The cost was only one fourth of what I had
been paying for commercial fertilizers.
Mecklenbcro Co., X. C, 1876.
This is to certify that 1 used Hams' Empire
Compost last year side by side with several
commercial fertilizers, and I find that the yield
from Harris' Compost was one-fourth greater
and the quality better than any. It makes the
cotton mature better, and, in my judgment, it
is preferable in every respect. The cost was
one fourth the price of high priced guanos, snd
one ton. will go over teo acres of land "
