UTTERLY SURPRISED !
Meridian, Miss. July 12, 1887.
For a number of-rears I have suffered un
told agony from the effects of blood poison". I '
had my cse treated by several prominent
physicians, but received but little, if any, re- j
lief. I resorted to all sorts of patent medicines,
spending a large amount of money 'but yet
getting no better. My attention wa9 attracted
by the cures said to have been affected by B B.B.,
and I commence taking it merely as an cxperi- .
ment, having but little faith in Jthe results. To
my utter surprise I sooii commenced to improve,
and deem myself to-day a well and hearty per
son all owing to the excellent qualities of B.
B. B. I cannot commend it too highly to
those suffering from blood poison,

Dawsox, Ga., June 30, '887. Being an old
mvn and suffering Trom general debility and
rheuiu;i'" of the joints of the shoulders, I
found difficulty '.a attending to my business,
that of a lawyer, until I bought and used five
battles of B.. B. B., Botnuic Blood Balm, of Mr.
T. C. Jones, or J. U. Irwin & Son, and my
health is improved and the rheumatism
1 believe it to '-e a good medicine.

Jean Goello's Yarn.
Before the wine-shop which o'erlook thebeach
Sit Jean Goello. rough of mien and spet'eb ;
Our coa-gtiard now, whose arm was shot away
In the great fight in Nararino Ray ;
Puffing his pipe, he slowly sips his grog,
And spins sea-yarns to many an old sea-dog
Sitting around him.
Yes, lads hear him say
'Twas sixty years ago this very day
Since I first went to sea; on board, you know,
Of La Belle Jonontielott long ago
An old three-masted tub. rotton almost,
Just fit to burn, Louud lor the Guinea coast.
We set all sail. The breeze was fair and stiff.
My boyhood had been passed neath yonder cliff
Where an old man my uncle, fo he said
Kept me at prawning for my daily bread.
At night he oarae home drunk. Such kicks
and blows !
Ah me! what children suffer no man knows I
But once at sea 'twas ten times worse, I found.
I learned to take, to bear, and make no sound.
First place, our ship was in th.- negro trade,
And once off laud, r o vain attempts were made
At secrecy. Our captain after that
(Round as n egg) was libi-ml of the cat.
The rope's-en ; . cu If, kicks, blows, all fell on me;
I was thip's bo- 'twa natural, you see
And as 1 went about the decks my arm
Was always raised to fend my face from harm.
o man had pity. Blows and stripes always.
tor sailors knew no better in those says
'Than to thrash boys, till those who lived at last
As able seamen shipped before the mast.
I ceased to cry. Tears brought me no relief.
1 think I might have perished of mute grief,
Had not God sent a friend a friend to me.
Sailors believe in God one mutt at sea.
On board that ship a Go I of mercy then
Had placed a dog among those cruel men.
Like me, he shunned his brutal kicks and blows.
"We soon grew friends, true fiiends, God knows.
He was Newfoundland. Black they called him
His eyes were golden brown, and black his hair.'
He was my shadow from that blessed night
When we made frieuds; and by the star s half-
When all the forecastle was fast asleep,
And our men " caulked their watch, I used to
With Black among some boxes stowed on deck,
And with my arms clasped tightly round his
fused to cry aud cry, and press my head
Close to the heart grieved by the tears I shed.
Night after night I mutinied our piteous case,
While Blacks large tongue licked my tear
Poor Black 1 I think of him so often still 1
At first we had fair winds our sails to fill,
But one hot night, when all was calm und mute,
Jor skipper a good sailor, though a brute
Gave a long Iook o'er the vessel s side,
Then to the steersman whimpered,, half aside,
See that ox-eye out yonder? It looks queer."
The man replied. "The storm will soon be here."
"Hullo! Allhai.d o. de.kl We'll be pr pared
Stow royals! Ueci the courses! rass the u oru!"
Vain! The squall broke ere we could shorten
1 sail ;
We lowered the topsails, but the raging gale
Spun our ship about. The captain roared
His orders lost iu the great noise on board.
The devil -was in the squ ill ! Btttall men could
To save their ship we dd. Do what we would.
The gale grew worse and worse. She sprang
I a leak ;
! Her hold filled fast. We found we had to seek
j Some way to save our lives. "Lower a boat!''
! The captain shouted. Before one would float
Our ship broached to. The strain bad broke
h r back. .
Like a whole broadside boomed the awful crack.
She settled fast. i
Landsmen canihave no notion
Of how it feels to sink beneath the ocean.
As the b a.' billows do ed above our deck,
'Ai d w tli slow motion swallowed down the
I saw my past life, by some fl ish outspread.
Saw the old port, iu ships, its old pier-head.
My own bare feet, the rocks, the sandy shore

I did not struggle much I could not swim.

By one brave tug he br night uu; near the baat.
I seized the gu.iwale, sprang on board and drew
My friend in after me. Ul all our crew,
The dog and I alone survived the gale:
Afloat with neither ru Ider, oar nor sail !
Boy, though. I was, my heart was brave and
Yet when the storm had blown its fury out,
I saw witu who can tell what wild emotion!
That if we met no ve.-sel in mi i-ocean,
There was no help lor u ill hope was gone:
We must alloat b.y, dog idjat alo.ie!
We had b?en saved from drowning but to die
Of thirst an l hunger my poor Bhctc and I.
No bascuit in the well-swept locker lay ;
No keg of water had been stowed away.
Like tho-se on the Medusa's raft. I thought
Ah! that s eitongb. A story is best short.
For five long nights, an j longer dreadful day?.

And mental anguish with its keener pangs.

Round us the blue spread wider, bluer, higher.

When something suddenly my notice caught

His eyes entreated help. He mapped at me!
What can this mean?' I cried, yet shook with
