THE OLD SCHOOL- BOOK.
On the old school-book, in its dusty nook,
With a tearful eye I gaze:
Come down, old friend, for an hour we’ll
In talking of by-gone days,
I gaze once more, as in days of yore,
On the task that vexed the brain;
The lesson done, and victory won,
And I feel I.m a child again.
And I seem tostand with the youthful band
In the old house on the green :
I hear the fun ere the school begun,
And I join in the gladsome scene.
I take my place with a sober face;
O’er the well carved desk I bend,
And hourly pore o'er the antique lore
Os thy wonderful page, old friend.
Then our cares were few, and our friends were
And our griefs were rare and light;
The world was naught (so we fondly thought)
But a region of pure delight.
But time has sped, and our path has led
Through the dark and tearful scene;
j And passed away are the good and gay,
Like the old house on the green.
But we'll sing no more of the days of yore,
For the tear-drop dims the eye.
Sleep on, old book, in thy dusty nook,
As in years that have glided by.
No guilt we trace in thy honest face,
But a mind of gold within
Enriched the youth, as they sought for truth,
In the old house on the green.
The Opium Habit.
Milltown, Chambers Co., Ala ,
March Ist. 1579.
Mr. B. M. Woolley, Atlanta, Ga.:
Dear Sir — I hereby certify that
I about seven years ago I contracted
the habit of using morphine for tooth
ache and netirelgia. I commenced by
using a small quantity, but the habit
grew on me until I could not do on
less than one bottle, of sixty grains,
per week, and sometimes more. 1 tried
every way I could to quit the habit
but could not. I commenced using
your antidote the 23d day of January,
1878, and left it off on the 9th day of
February, 1879. I have no disposi
tion now to use morphine, or any
other opiates. I feel that my health
is greatly improved, and feel under a
thousand obligations to you and your
remedy. lam sure it will cure any
person who will use it as directed.
I am yours, gratefully,
Matilda A* Clifton.
P. S.—You can use this certificate
as you please, and may direct any
person to me for any information they
may desire. M. A. C.
I hereby certify that the above cer
tificate from my wife is correct and
true. ’ G. AV. Clifton.
Middleton, Cnambers Co.. Ala.
HE FURTHER WRITES.
My Dear Friend — I seat myself
this morning to drop you a few lines
in regard to my wife. She has left off
the antidote, is doing finely, and is
more lively than she has been for six
or seven years. She says that there
is nothing on earth that would induce
her to return to the use of morphine
again. Our home is a pleasant home
now to what it has been for the last
six or seven years. The children are
all highly delighted at the thought of
their mother’s release from the terri
ble bondage of opiates. Our neigh
bors and friends are expressing their
gratitude for the gift of a Woolley
and his Antidote, and now accept the
heartfelt gratitude I feel due you and
your great remedy. May you live
long and continue to do good to suf
fering humanity. lam
G. AV. Clifton.
