From a letter written by Rev. J.
Gundermau, of Diamondale, Alich.,
we are permitted to make this ex
tract: i' have no hesitation in re
commending Dr. King's New Dis
covery, as the results were almost
marvelous in the casa of my wife.
While I was pastor of the Baptist
church at Rives Junction she was
brought down with pneumonia
succeeding La Grippe. lerrible
paroxysms of coughing would last
hours with little interruption and it
seemed as if she could not survive
them, A friend recommended Dr.
King's New Discouery; it was quick
in its work and highly satiefactoiy
in results. Trial bottles free at

eigh. In doing so Mr. Ray will be
turning away from a salary ot
$2500 in Kentucky and an offer of
$2700 salary in Virginia to serve in
his own State at a salary of $2000.
We hear Prof. Ray spoken of in the
very highest terms and under his
guidance it is hoped that the insti
tution will be more thoroughly
known and its blessings will em
brace the widest possible range. An
exchange says there are 731 blind
children in the State and yet not
more than one fourth of them at
tend this beneficient institution.
This should not be so, and due ef
forts to overcome the evil is the
duty of some one. It is to be hoped
that Prof. Ray will infuse new life
into the instution and spread its
benign offices to every one tor
whose benefit the noble institution
has been erected and maintained.
