SMITH'S TONIfi SYRUP!
FOR THE CURE OF
AGUE ANO FEVER
CHILLS ANO FEVER.
The proprietor of this celebrated medicine justly
claims for It a superiority over all remedies ever offer
ed to the public for the safe, certa in , speedy and per
mane,nt cure of Ague and Fever .or Chilis and Fever
whether of short or long standing. He refers to the
entire Western and Southwestern country to bear him
testimony to the truth of the assertion, that in no case
whatever will It fail to cure, if the directions are strict
ly followed and ca rieii out. In a great many cases a
single dose has been sufficient for a cure, and whole
families have been cured by a single bottle, with a per
fect restoration of the general health. It is, however,
prudent, and in every case more certain to cure, if its
use is continued in smaller doses for a week or two af
ter the disease has been checked, more especially in
difficult and long standing cases. Usually, this medi
cine will not require any aid to keep the bowels in
good order: should the patient, however, require a
cathartic medicine, after having taken three or four
doses of the Tonic, a single dose of BULL’-} VEGETA
BLE EAM’LY PIuLS will be sufficient,

pretty large country practice, and have daily use for
some article of the kind. lam free to confess that I
know of no remedy recommended by theabiest authors
that is so certain and speedy in its effects. On the con
trary they are uncertain in the extreme. My object
in writing you is to find out upon what terms I can
get the medicine directly from you. If I can get it
upon easy terms, I shall use a great deal of it. lan
aware that the use of such articles is contrary to the
teachings and practice of a great majority of the reg
ular line of M. D.’s, but I see no just cause or gold
sense in*tliscarding a remedy which we know to be ef
ficient, simply because we may be ignorant of its com
bination. For my part, I shall make it a rule to use all
and any means to alleviate suffering hum inity which
I may be able to command— not hesitating because
someone more ingenious than myself may have learn

Miss Betsey resides in the "Alabam.”
She gives the following account of
her first and last ride on the cars, du
ring the late war. “Joe,” her brother,
was a soldier iu the Confederate ser
“Yon see my brother Jde, he was
took for a soldier and atterawhile he
took sick and they put him iu the hos
pittle, up to Cullutnbus. I heern tell
they didn’t have much to eat up thar;
leetwise, sich as sick folks hankers tit
ter; and I felt powerful sorry for Joe.
I wanted to carry him somethin nice,
and I knowed he loved aigs abundance.
So I thought I’d git him a l askit
o’ aigs. But they was mity skeerce
them times, and hard to git. But
howsomever, by raking around, under
the clay roots and bresh beeps, and
I>i*. F. 31.
beggiu and borrowin and bnyin, I did
manidge at last togita baskit full—sev
en dozen. The next thing was to git to
him with ’urn. I dassent send 'urn.—
Thare was so much steelin and pilferin
gwin on, you couldn’t keep a pig until
the ole sow got through weanin of him,
people was so hungry and times was
so hard, ’fheu the Govurnmint, hit
was a taken everything hit could lay |
hits hand on. I heern tell if the war
had a hung -a little longer the Govurn
mint, hit wis agwine to take all the
steel hoops outen the women’s crinner
lynes to make sw’ords outen; but it
didn t quite come to that as it hap
pened. Well—as I was a sayin, I
knowed hit want no use to send them
aigs to Joe—not while things was as
they was then. He’d never a got ’um; j
the quarter masters, or tire tax assess- ’
mints, or some o’ that breed would ha’
confiscated um before they got as fur
as Silver Run. At last I got afeerd
the aigs would spile keepin 'um ou
hand so long; and so, atter thinkin
over it a good deel, and right smart i
prar, (prayer) I at last got my con
sent to ride up to Cullumbus on the j
critter—cars. I never had rid on the ;
critter, and hit squealed and suortpd
so, whenever I seen hit, and spit, spew- :
ed and smoked so, I was powerful
skeered on it. But I made up my i
mind, kill or no kill, let the critter do
what hit would do to me, Joe, he had to
have them aigs. So, after all was rea
dy, I jist happened to remember I
didn't have nary bounit. But I went
over to cousin Sally Grimeses (she’s
one o’ my double cousins—enymost a
sister, like) and borried hern to go to
see Joe in.
So early Monday morn in, atter a
sleepliss night—you see I couldu’t
sleep on the account o’ studyin’ about
the critter, and wondeviu what hit was
a-gwine to do to me—l got on the
critter with seer and trimblin; aud
thar I sot on one o’ them sofy’s (seats)
waitin to seo how hit would he. I
tell you , I was skeered! I eonymost
had ur ager—l trim bled so. Present
ly, the critter, hit squeeled, and blow
ed, and give a jerk and a jump; and
then hit hollered, and off hit went!—
my Lord ! The jerk, hit throwed the
basket o’ aigs out of my lap; but the
baskit lit, handle side up, ou the floor,
and thar hit sot, just lik’s if I had ur
put it thar, ur purpus. And then the
critter, hit jist ruuned away 1 I look
ed around for Bob Coleman. I had
heern tell that the critter would mind
him, and he could stop it. But Bob
was nowhars to be found ! Seein I
had to help myself, thar beiu no other
refuge, I jest stretched out both
ways as fur as T could re f ch, cot hold
o’ the top o’ the sofy iu front o’ me
with one hand, and the top o’ the sofy
behind me with the other hand, and
thar I sot, and hilt on with all my
might. I tell you, sir, I hilt my holt
that time, you be bound ! And the
critter, hit jest kep a-gwino, faster, and
faster, and faster! Hit looked like,
the harder I hilt my holt, the faster
hit would go, tryin to make me break
my holt. Faster and faster hit went,
’twel it eeuymost tuck my breth, and
the fences, and the trees, they would
dash up to the windows, like mad;
and I spected every minit they would
come iu; and I leent over, fur as I
could retch outer the way; and I don’t
’twel yit, how they could come up so
closte, and so velocious, and stop,
’thout cornin’ in. But, sir! I hilt my
Atterawhile the wind, hit was so
strong through the winder, my Cousin
Sal’s bonnit, (she’s one o’ my double
cousins, you know—eenymost a sister
like) —my Cousin Sal’s bonuit, hit be
gin to git restless; and at lass, hit
couldn’t stand it no longer, and hit
jest broke loose from round my neck,
and tore out o’ the winder ! Es I
could ur seen Bob Coleman, I would
ur got Bob to stop the critter long
enough to ur got the bonnit; fur it
was Cousin Sal’s ouliest one she had
to go to Church in, down to Ebenezer.
[I reckin you’ve bin to Ebenezer
Church, hain’t yon? It’s got glass
winders into it, eight of ’em—with
green shetters to ’em.]
Well, as I was a sayin, I looked all
around for Bob, to git him to speak
to the critter and make it uto; but he
was nowhars to be found! But I
want agwiue to bi’eak my holt, nor for
all the bonnits in the Alabam; no sir,
I hilt my holt! A tier while the critter,
hit commenced to jump and bump up
and down so the aigs begin to roll and
rattle about in the basket, like as if
they was in a pot, and hit on a hard
bile; and presently over went the baa
kit; and the critter hit rolled the aigs
all over the floor, and under the peo
ple’s feet, and they all a laffin fit to
kill thayselves. But I didn’t keer—
I want ur studyin bout them. Nor I
want study in bout aigs, uutlier— not
then. For the critter hit appeared
like hit was jist on the pint o’ doin
| somethin oncommon, hit cut up and
j and carried on so, a squealin and fiz
! zin, like mad, But sir, I hiJt my holt,—
There was one good man on the critter
—ho didn t lass like the rest ou um.
He got up and picked up the uigs,
the whole seven dozen, and put um
back iu the bask’t.; and t ick my li.tnk
erclier fiom round my neck (for I
wouldn’t break my holt, come what
would) and tied the baskit down ou
the sofv, by me, so hit couldn’t tum
' ble off no more. He was -i good man—-
I liked him. I wauN-d to tell him
thankee, but the critter hit squealed
so boiu that time, I knowed he couln’t
hear me, so I jest looked in his face I
and smilt (smiled.) But sir, I hilt my
holt ! Atterawhile we got to the river;
and I heern tell when the critter got I
thar hit vould fly over, and hit did !
Jest as I sc< n hit was about to rise up
at the water’s aidge, I shat my eyes
and went to prar, an 1 presently the j
critter lit and squealed, and thar we
was in Cullumbus; and then hit stop
ped. But, sir, I never broke my hoit
the wholo forty mile. Soon ns I start
ed up Broad street, almost, who should
I meet but Joe hiss- If! He was a lit

locked the hospittle aud let him out
to take a little walk.
Soon’s ever he seen me, “ift’hy!

Why gal! I’m glad to see you”—aud
the tears sprung outen his eyes, and
outen mine too—l couldn’t hope it.—

in?” sez I, “I thought I was jest a
whisperin.” You see the critter hit kep
such an almity fuss, it made me rite
deef; and I didn’t know I was talkin
loud a bit—not more than onary.
And then sez I, “Joe, here’s some aigs
I’ve fetched you, boy; but I expeck ev
ery last oue of urn’s broke—the critter
hit rolled um about so.” Aud Joe, he
was powerful proud to git the aigs, ’
for sez lie, ‘I tell you Bets, I’m prettv !
nigh starved, gal, and my teeth’s all
outen order, tryin to chaw the bull j
beef they has up here; and as to the
water—Old Dives wouldn’t drink it, es
it wass offered to him; and you In jw !
he was middlin thirsty when last h :ern
from. Lord, gal! if you had j< st er
brought me a little waiter from the old
spring; I’d eenymost ruther to ur had
it thau the aigs.’ And then Joe, be
tuck me round to a store close by
where Tom Chapman used to keep.—
I reckon you know him, don’t you ?
Him and Peacock’s iu cwhoot now;
i powerful clever men—square as dry
good’s*L>ox; I likes um. Joe he took
ne aroun thar, and bought me some
i things, and a bon nit for cousin Sal,
| (she’s one o’ my doable cousin’s—cen
! ymost a sister like) aud another one
for myself. But Boh Coleman he sent
her other bonnit home in about a week
—the one whar tore outen the window.
And then Joe he gin me the money to
i go back home on the critter; but ‘No !’
I rez I, ‘Hossfly, I ain’t gwine home on
! the critter I wouldn’t ha’ come on
the critter, hadn’t ur bin fir gettin

in. My arnu feels like they was eeny
most broke off; and I’ve got a crick in
the neck, whar I leent over so fur, a
dodgiu them trees and fence corners;
aud Joe, I’m the tirdest thing ever you
seen. No, Joe, I’m grine to foot it
back home,’ —and foot it I did, and
youll never ketch me a ridin the crit
ter again; thout I’m de-id and laid out;
aud then it wont matter whether my

MARK TWAIN’s HISTORY OF THE FOUNDE l
OF THE FAMILY AND HIS DESCENDANTS.
When Noah disembarked at Ararat,
he had scarcely touched the pier when
he proceeded to tally his passengers.—
He had just checked his last item in
the list—a Mr. and Mrs. Bedbug—
when the cringing figure of a quadru
ped came sneaking down the gang
way with his tail between his legs.—
“Drat it, if there aint that yaller dog‘”
says Noah, aiming a vociferous kick
with his brogan at the brute. But, with
a facility of a born of long and bitter
experience, the brute dodged the pro
jectilc and ejaculating “ki-ki,” winch

‘not for Joe’—he disappeared,while No

which had characteristically sneaked
unobserved on board, in the confusion
of putting to sea, and capsized the
Captain at the first port. He cursed
that dog in body, limb, bark, hide, hair,
tail and wag, and all his generations,
relations and kindred, by consanguin
ity or affinity, and his heirs and assigns.
He cursed him with endless hunger,
with perpetual fear, with perennial la
ziness, with hopeless mange, with in
cessant fleas, and with his tail between
his legs. He closed his stock of male
dictions by a sparkling display of py
rotechnics, from a demoralizing effect
of which the yaller dog has never re
With this curse sticking to him like
a revenue stamp, the yaller dog can’t

help it. He follows Noah’s programme
with sneaking fidelity. He is an Isli

most oppressive courtesies in the way
o f brickbats, boots and hot water,
which make his life an animated target

district school teacher, and it is meal
