The following extract, taken from
a letter written by Mr. E. A. Bell,
fully explains itself:
While surveying land in '83 I acci
dently handled poison oak vine, and
in less than three hours (the erup
tion usually resulting from such con
tact begins in ten days my face was
swollen and disfigured, and m
hands and arms seriously affected.
I immediately began taking Swift's
Specific (S. S. S.), and after taking
three large bottles I found all signs
of the breaking out entirely remov
ed. I was led to suspect its return
at the same time next year, but il
did not, nor has there been any in
dications of its return since.
My little boy, eight years old, was
afflicted with the same poison in '81.
After taking several bottles of (S. S.
S.) Swift's Specific the eruptions en
tirely disappeared. A very slight
form of the same eruption returned
during the next spring, but we then
i churned the 8. S. S., and having
taken enough during that season to
make the cure permanent, he has
not since had any retura of the dis
ease. Swift's Specific (S. S.S.) cer
tainly effected thorough cures in both
these cases, and I regard it as a most
effective remedy for all such diseases.

AN ANCIENT MAN Of STRENGTH.

Tle firat teatn manajrrr of IV rlin,
Joluinn Karl von KckenocT?. a lh
no called "man of tr?ngth, bo
siiowed himself iiJtriy 2Xi rears ajn.
Crt aJi jug-jjkr. then as athlete. Of
his lif little is known except as in his
carver as theatre m&nagtr, as le was
the founder of the nnt fJerlin theatre.
He was extcniTtly wnUu of, and an
article under the title of "An Athlete
of the Eighteenth Century," published
some Tears ago and recently uu
eartheu, give an interesting account
of his prowww, as follows:
liy an athlete of the Eighteenth cen
tury we do vjA mean the Prince Fred
erick August of Baxour, king of Pv
laiul, cornnaonly called August the
Strong, who coukl knock otf the head
of an ox with one stroke of his sword
aud besides dLtinguihed LiiuM.-lf in
all kinds of resr,ectable perCormauces
of strength, but another Hercules who
would have wrapped the strong Auguht
around his little tingr, if hucIi a thing
would have been permitted, lliismau
was the athlete Julian n Karl von Eck
enberg, who in the twenties and thir
ties of the last century showed his
productions of strength in public. He
was the mott stately of all gymna.sU
and was born in the town of Harzge
rode, aird out of it-snect to his native
town he called himself for a time, on
his bill posters, Sampson Hercules
It borders on the fabulous what his
contemporaries related of his remark
able exhibitions of strength. He broke
an anchor rope as if it were ordinary
tii read, iron nails and bolts he turned
playfully between his fingers into
screws, a cannon pije he carried
around as if it were u bubv. His teeth
were as strong as iron, lie bit into a
Iiieco of oak wood ; then a strong cart
lorse was harnessed up to it. In spite
of the horso beintr urged on it was un
able to pull tho stick out of the juggler's
mouth or to pull the athlete from the
place where ne stood. A bench made
oQAvood, sixteen feet long, he grasped
witli his teeth by one end and carried
it around, while a trumpeter blowing
his instrument sat on the other end.
His arm was more powerful than
his teeth. Ho spread out his hands,
on each ono was placed a bottle of
wine, then a rope was attached to each
wrist and to each rope thero were
three men from the audience who
pulled with all their might, so as to
mako it impossible for this Hercules
to convey the wine to his mouth. All
their zeal was without avail, as the
arms of the gymnast bent themselves
irresistibly and brought the jug to his
mouth without spilling a drop of
He generally saved his grandest per
formance of strength until the close
of the exhibition, lie ascended a scaf
fold of beams under which. was a plat
form of thick planks fastened on
strong chains. A trumpeter mounted
on a horse, clad as a herald, rode upon
the platform and played his tunc. The
Hercules then took a place on the
point of the scaffolding, held a glass
of wine in ono hand and with the
other, by means of the chains, lifted
tho heavy platform, tho horse and the
trumpeter high up from the floor, and
for a little while held the whole
weight, the trumpeter shrillv blowing
a tune, while tho athlete tlrank the
glass of wine, at the same time giving
a toast to tho magistrate and the citi
zens of tho city in which he happened
to be btaying.
When Herr von Eckenberg became
older, his power gradually left him;
therefore he gave up the herculean
business and became chief theatre
manager of Berlin, where he for some
time possessed two show booths, which,
liowever, did not bring him as large
an income as did his exhibition of
strength. But when he had this large
income he did not know how to save.
He had a competitor, Peter Hilferdiug,
who had a show booth with privileges
and at tle same time was a practical
ioker and clewn under the name of
Pantalon de Bisoguosi. Provoking
quarrels with this man embittered the
lift, of the "man of strength." His
numerous creditors seized both his
booths with all belongings, completely
impoverishing the celebrated Hercules,
who died in the year 175-4. From the

However, as was rei narked before,
there is generally a day when ho is
found out. To illustrate: Several years
afro a ycinjr man went to the irenend
otlicc of one of our Icadiuff railroad
companies in town. He was the bearer
of strong letters of recommendation
from an old friend of the manager iu
a small rural town. The letters re

young man, on Ins marvelous camc

out for just such a young niau, at once
gave him a berth m his private ollice.
He prospered amazingly, for all that
was required of him was to exercise
his natural talent keeping his mouth
shut The manager swore, by him.
Other men iu tho ollice caught tho in-
fectiou. Every clerk came to look
upon Mr. Tytelipps let us call him
Tytelipps for short as a phenomenon,
as a nioucl young man. Everybody
marveled how this country bred youii"

Thus Mr. Tytelipjw rose, step bv step,
and his salary with him. One day he

For a little while it was all right.
He continued to keep his mouth shut.
But there was a turn in the tide. At
a directors' meeting some information
and suggestions bearing on the better
working of the department whose
head Mr. Tytelipps had shortly be
come, was called for. Mr. Tyteliws' as
sistant, a man who had grown gray in
the service of the company and who
knew all the ins and outs of the de
partment to a T (but who had the mis
fortune to once in awhile talk too
much), was sick at home. So Tvte-
lipps himself had to respond. And
when the questions had been fired at
him and the board was waiting to be
enlightened, Tytelipps shook his head
sagely, coughed and hemmed and
hawed. That "didn't go." He had to
do some talking.' Then the directors
unanimously came to the conclusion
that Tytelipps was a monumental ass
and ought to be bounced. And he
was bounced not long after. At least
he was reduced to the ranks. But he
couldn't stand this long, ne went,
aud when last heard from he was ped

Forty years ago the leader of flie
New York bar was George Wood,
whose grave dejortinent and habit oi
closing his eyes when in thought gave
him an owlish appearance.
Otie day a gentleman called on Dan

saken politics and resumed the prac
tice of law, to retain his services in a
case involving a large sum of money.
Mr. Webster, in accepting the re

"Walking well is often an affair of
boots," says Henry M. Trollope.
"These boots should not only be com

be well made. Another very import
