Doctors are not infallible and there are many instances where they have decided a case was hopeless and then the patients astonished everyone by getting well and the sole cause of their cure was Dr. David Kennedy’s Favorite Remedy. A case in point is that of James Lettuce of Cana- joharie, N. Y., who writes: \Some years ago I was attacked with pains in my back and side that were fearful in the extreme. I could not control my kidneys at all and what came from them was mucous and blood. I was in a terrible state and suffered intensely. A prominent physician of Albany. N. Y.. decided that an operation was all that would save me. I dreaded that and com­ menced to take Dr. David Kennedy's Favorite Remedy. 1 felt better almost instantly. When I had taken about two bottles, the flow from the bladder was much cleaner, the pain stop­ ped. and I was saved from the surgeon's knife and am now well.\ Dr. W. H. Morse, the famous physi­ cian of Westfield, N. J„ has this to say of this great medicine: *'I have known it to cure chronic inflam­ mation of the kidneys, where the attending physician pronounced the case incurable.\ No form of kidney, liver, bladder or blood disease, or the distressing sickness­ es so common to women, can long with­ stand the great curative power of this famous specific.

A writer on children's games in Japan says: ‘‘Blind man’s buff as played in Japan is quite the same ns the game played by western chil­ dren, but if you play it with Jap­ anese I may warn you not to say ‘Come here!’ in English to any one you may be trying to catch. It will be all right to say in Japanese ‘Chot- to oide’ (Come here a moment) or ‘Oide nasal’ (Condescend to come here). The person spoken to will not ‘oide’ of course if he or she can help himself or herself, but if yor call out iu English ‘Come here!’ as 1 know a foreigner did once, you may interrupt the game. ‘Come here’ (in Japanese character written ka-mi) means for­ eign dog. Inn is the word for native dog, but the first foreigners in Yoko­ hama, Americans and English folk, al­ ways said ‘Come here!’ to their dogs and the expression has become a Jap­ anese word.” Certificates of Deposit Issued.

To one unacquainted with the fractious beasts the statement may lack interest, but there was not a soul in South I-Ian- aford who would not have been keenly alive to the possibilities consequent on their getting out. for when the Good­ win cattle broke bounds nothing was safe. No precincts were too sacred for them to enter, nor was there anything green that was not esteemed of their palates. The Rev. Sigourney Hard- wieke had seen a whole cabbage patch disappear down their huge throats while lie lay on Ids lounge too ill to chase them or to call assistance. They had wandered in at the open door of Mrs. Henry Sedgwick’s parlor on the afternoon that the sewing society was to meet there, and before they could be removed the amount of damage that they had inflicted could not have been rivaled by their old ancestor, the bull that invaded a china shop. And that was not a tenth of the unusual exploits to their credit or discredit. No fence not of barbed wire could resist their seductive horns, and as George Goodwin did not believe in wire fences the two oxen used their spare time in finding out new ways to escape from the five acre lot in which they were confined and where the pas­ turage was sweet and the water abun­ dant. A love for mischief is not gen­ erally set down among an ox’s charac­ teristics, but the Goodwin oxen were as mischievous as monkeys. Indeed, Sam Moncypenny had averred that he bad heard them chuckling with delight when they ate up the last stalk of his prize evergreen corn. Goodwin had been begged and order­ ed to tie the beasts up when his man was through using them, but Goodwin, although he owned the farm on which the cattle were pastured, himself lived over in Canton, and as out of sight is out of mind with most people he did nothing except ask his man to strength­ en the fences. But as the strength of the oxen kept pace with the fences a new rail in the morning simply meant a broken rail at night, and the two brothers in crime would eat up a bed of nasturtiums or overthrow a rockery or tumble a wood pile down with all the zest of wanton schoolboys. Trueman Newberry was an old bach­ elor, very good looking, fairly equipped in wordly goods and the most fished for man in the South Ilannford pond. The Ncwberrys had come from Wind­ sor and were descended from Govern­ or Bradford, and from the earliest times there had been one handsome old bachelor who did not surrender his freedom until well along in years, and it looked ns if Trueman would carry out the tradition, as far as not marry­ ing young went, if indeed he was ever ensnared. Trueman had two hobbies, a love for old furniture and a passion for flow­ ers. The farmers about smiled in- i wardly as they saw him wasting valu-1 able time, which might have been cm- I ployed at farming, in making a bed of ! “posies” and in afterward watering them like Apollos, hut if they had laughed openly he would not have cared. As long as he pleased True­ man Newberry he did not care whether any one else was pleased; not that he was selfish, but he was independent. When Miss Grayson came to South Ilanaford to hold in check the rebel­ lious youth who attended the district school, Trueman was visibly impressed with her charms, which, in the lan­ guage of the boys of today, were of the “peachy” variety. He saw her first at church, where she supplied a rich contralto to a choir that needed richness of some kind, but be did not see her to speak to her until the dona­ tion party that was inflicted upon Mr. Hardwieke in the latter part of Au­ gust, and then he found that she was interested in old furniture, like him­ self. In fact, she had a lowboy that had been in her mother's family since It came over with Salathiel Gaylord on the good ship Mary and Ellen in 1035 . Ills heart had warmed to her after that avowal, and lie had felt that if he ever married It would be to one like this, who could bring with her a wagon load of antique furniture. He was go­ ing to ask her if she adored flowers and the care of them, but Mrs. Curtiss brought her son William over to meet her, and he did not have another op­ portunity to talk to her that evening. But she was distinctly .pleasant and lively, a ml he found himself thinking of her many times after that night, and before many days had passed lie discovered that, although the choir had five basses to two piping tenors, they stood in great need of his resonanl bass, nml he Immediately joined tlml body of singers and on Friday evening rehearsal, as luck would have it, was assigned the seat next to that occupied by Miss Grayson, only she had gone home to Newington to spend Sunday. He had half a mind to resign when he heard this; but, after all, there were other Sabbaths coming, so he pitched into the tunes with a fervor that ex­ cited the jealousy of the other basses. Trueman had n fine voice. All the Newberrys had been singers from the earliest times. Trueman sang at morning service and evening prayer meeting with his eyes on the notes and his mind on Miss Grayson. He was hard hit. There was no doubt of that. At twenty-six he was likely to go the way that had seldom been trod by a Newberry bach­ elor until twice twenty-six years had been passed in this vale. After prayer meeting he walked home alone and sank into a mahogany chair that had been a Newberry possession for 2 0 0 years. Ills thoughts were not of furniture, however, but of a form and a face that would have made a kitchen chair look like a piece of Chip­ pendale. He smoked his pipe out, and then he retired, but not to sleep. Ills thoughts were with Miss Grayson, who even now was returning from Newington. That much he knew because he had heard Mrs. Dibble tell Mrs. Harding, with whom the schoolteacher boarded, that she thought it was shocking for her to come back on Sunday instead of making an early start on Monday morning. It lacked some minutes of 10 o'clock when Trueman heard a commotion out­ side of his window. He sprang from his bed and looked out. The moon was at the full, and a diaphanous cloud was coquetting with it, but his eye did not take in the beauty of the scene. All that he saw were the two mischief makers, the Goodwin oxen, walking around in his bed of dahlias. They had already rolled on his asters and had torn down the beautiful wild cucum­ ber vines that covered the southern wall of his house and had lessened by half the pile of “pounder” apples that he had purposed shipping to his mar­ ried sister in New York for old times’ sake. * Clad in his white cotton nightshirt and with the red carpet slippers on his feet that always stood at his bedside, ready for instant use, this bachelor leaped down the front stairs and pick­ ed up ns a weapon the first thing that came to hand, which happened to be a feather duster that had belonged to bis grandmother and that had been molt­ ing any time these fifty years. He opened the front door, brandish­ ing this terrible bludgeon, and the oxen glanced mildly at him and then ambled through his sweet pea hedge, carrying off garlands of flowers on their broad horns. Then as he pursued they punch­ ed holes in his well kept lawn, marking their easy progress to the street, where they stopped and looked over their shoulders and seemed to smile at him. This so enraged him that he deter­ mined to chase them down the road as far as lie could. He forgot his scanty clothing, forgot everything but the fact that these vexatious beasts bad ruined his garden and had then added insult to injury by grinning at him. He might have driven them into the Goodwin lot that lay across the way, but the fence was newly torn, and It would have been foolish to try penning them up for the night. They were out for a lark, and he would help them to one, only It should not be at his further expense. So he hurled the duster at them and hit the nigh one amidships. The great animal made a playful pass with his hind legs and knocked a potted fuchsia off a stump with the ease of a pre­ miere danseuse. Trueman seized the broken pieces of the pot and hurled them at the wicked pair, and both were hit on the head. And then the race began. With tossing horns they tore southward down the road. He recovered his treasured feath­ er duster aud sprinted after them, his drapery streaming in the wind, Ills red slippers slapping his heels rhythmically with each stride, and the feather duster gyrating in the air like a drum major’s baton. Once he fell and marred the snowy whiteness of his toga, but a jump and a shake and a plunge for­ ward with lowered head and he had re­ gained the space he had lost by falling, and once more the feathered dart hur­ tled through the air in a manner sug­ gestive of bullfights, although it fell short of it* mark. lie had not thought that oxen could be so fleet, but their fleetness would but serve to put a lengthy distance be­ tween them and his grounds. He would wm V.'.i i-: :■ ^ .XV\ Vi '» '• 5 I M .1 ■i i A - i #•; l V • Z I. ««;• ' r > i,. I •~VvX 7 •. • i • v lv>! • > Why can’t we come over to your house and play any more? Because papa gets so mad when we make a little bit of noise. What makes him that way? Mamma says it’s dys­ pepsia makes him act so crazy. That’s about the way it strikes the small boy. The dyspeptic has no idea o f nis own unrea­ sonableness or harsh­ ness. Little things are magnified and seem to justify his quick anger. There’s health for the dyspeptic and happiness for the family by the use of Doctor Pierce’s Golden Medical Discov­ ery. It cures diseases o f the stom­ ach and other organs of digestion and nutrition, and restores perfect health and strength, by enabling the perfect digestion and assimila­ tion of food. «I have taken one bottle o f Dr. Pierce’s Golden Medical Discovery for indigestion and liver complaint,” writes Mr. C.

As they crossed Tiblmll’s bridge lie dropped a slipper, lie picked It up to hurl at the oxen; but, true to Its name. It slipped from his lingers nml went far Iistmim. And that slipper lmd first be­ longed to his grandfather! The oxen were not in the least blown, but he was, in every sense o f the word, and his hair looked like a field of rye through which a cyclone had passed. The night winds toyed with his linen garment, and the stones In the road hurt his slipperless foot. It had been fifteen years since he had gone bare­ foot. But to stop before his work was done was not like a Newberry. The churchyard was not far away, and he would not leave them until they were safe behind the high stone walls and six barred gate of the sanctuary of the dead. They could restore some of the moss covered Inscriptions on the tombs with their horns or scratch new ones, for nil lie cared, but they would not IrouMo him again that night. On sped the strange trio, the red oxen and the man in white, past the Bulkeleys, past the Days, past the Trnlntors, past the Goodspeeds, past the Bills; then n sharp turn to the left, and they were In the lane that led to the graveyard. By some lucky chance the cemetery gate was open, and, with a final hurling o f the Innocuous feather duster and a volley of small stones al­ most as harmless, he drove the bovine marplots into the graveyard, closed the gate securely and retraced his steps to the highway. He now for the first time realized that he was a full half mile from home, and, while it was night and he was clad In the garments of the night season, still South Ilanaford society would not have received him iu such habiliments. But fortune favored him, inasmuch as it was 10 o'clock and all Ilanaford was asleep. All l-Ianaford? No. There was one who was not yet asleep, oue who was driving toward him in a cov­ ered buggy. Who could there be pro­ faning the little end of the Sabbath in this fashion? It looked like the Hard­ ing team. Well, he wasn’t afraid of old Nelson Harding, and, besides, there was no place to hide. He was on a perfectly open, treeless, level stretch of road. As he walked boldly along, using the feather duster as a cane, something about the harness broke, and the horse, walking half way out of the shafts, stopped as a quarter century’s hardening to mishaps had taught him to do. With a little scream the occupant of the buggy essayed to jump from the high box and, tripping, fell to the ground. But it was not Nelson Harding, but —merciful heavens, Miss Grayson! Shu lay where she bad fallen, as if stunned, but when Trueman ran toward her she sat up, glanced at him and screamed again. “ Are you hurt?” asked lie, and she, after her second scream, acted as if it were quite the ordinary thing for Han- aford men to take nocturnal rumbles in cotton robes. She rose to her foot and. answered him calmly, “No; I am not a bit hurt, but I don’t in the least know what to do.” Trueman stepped over to the wagon and saw that the whltfletree had bro­ ken and had released one of the traces. “ Is there a rope in the wagon?” said he. “ Yes, the tie line,” she answered. “ That will do. I’ll fix you up so you can ..get the wagon home, and if you don’t care to ride in it I’ll drive it and you can walk. It’s such a little dis­ tance.” Oh, how pretty she did look, so fresh! That little wave o f hair that had loosed itself from its fellow locks was so rav­ ishing! Wliat an inspiriting thought that he could be o f real service to sucli a beautiful girl! If he could be sure that she was fond of flowers! He took the rope, and, with the help of his now truly valuable feather dus­ ter he fashioned a new end to the whif- fletree and slipped the trace’s end over the handle. While he worked at it and she watched him with an admiring in­ terest, for he was singularly deft with Ills hands, he suddenly said: “ Miss Grayson, I meant to ask you the other night if you were fond of flowers.” “ I adore them,” she replied, with fer­ vor. “ Have you ever seen my garden?” “Not near to. I noticed it as I was driving by on Friday. It is beautiful, and Mrs. Harding says you laid it out yourself.” “ I always do. I’d like you to come and see It—not now—with Mrs. Hard­ ing.” Then he remembered that the oxen had done for his garden, and he stam­ mered: “ Oh, I forgot! It’s ruined. The oxen ate it up.” “The oxen ate it up?” said she after him. It now struck her for the first time that perhaps he was crazy. He certainly had on a very crazy costume. If he had not been the Adonis that he certainly was, this cotton robe and the lonely looking carpet slipper of Vene­ tian red would not have been becoming to him, but even his touseled hair be­ came him, and he would have looked handsome in anything. But why was he out so late on so cool a nierkt with such inadequate clothing? “There; that’ll last until you get home,” said he. He took the reins and ilimbed into the wagon. He stubbed Ills bare toe on the step, and the pain was excruciating for a moment, but his face did not show it. “ I’ll drive slowly, and you can walk. I don't suppose you care to ride,” said lie. “No; I’d rather walk,” said she. How kind he was, but how peculiar! She did hope that no one would be looking out. It would seem so queer. He gazed at her fondly from the seat as the old horse began to walk slowly along. He drew the lap robe over his knees. It was getting cool. “ Miss Grayson, have you—have you ever thought seriously about mar­ riage?” “ Not since I was a child,” said she, laughing, she knew not why. “Then you haven’t ceased to think of It,” he said and realized that it wasn’t exactly what he lmd meant to express. “ I mean—why, Miss Grayson, we have so much in common. You love bid furniture and so do I, and you love flowers and l do, too, and I—I adore you, and you”— “ Really, Mr. Newberry, I don’t know how to take you.” “Take me as 1 am — that is, Miss Grayson, wlmt Is your first name?\ “ Ruth,” said Miss Grayson almost before she knew It. He had clasped the reins in his hands, and he now raised reins and hands to his heart and said: “ Ruth, I am not a man to sillily stinlly, I knew fd marry when thi right woman came along, and here— hero you are. Don’t Sny ‘No.’ I have a comfortable house, and I can restore my garden In spite of the oxen that are cursed or blessed according ns you an­ swer me. Come; we are almost at your house. I will leave the horse and wag­ on here and halloo for Mr. Harding if you will but say the one little word that 1 want. Isn’t ruling me better than ruling a lot of unruly children? I know what that school is. I went there myself, and no teacher’s lot is an easy Trueman put Ills hand up to lift his cap, and his fingers met in a lock of disheveled lmir. lie waved his hand ns gracefully ns he could and turned and hurried home, disappearing just as Mr. Harding came out to see what was the matter. Trueman took longer tr get home than lie had taken to come with the oxen as pacemakers, but he was strangely happy, he knew not why. But the next day he knew, and now if you were to visit Mr. Newberry’s house he and Mrs. Newberry would be very likely to show you, among their treasures, an old feather duster laid as an ornament above another treasure, a painting by Iloratio Walker o f u pair of oxen, which bears the odd title “ The Homemakers.” B a k in g P o w d e r T h e grea t co o k in g s c h o o l s m u s t have th e b e s t re s u lts.

Principal Boston Cooking School . Statesman and Gambler. Charles James Fox, the English statesman, was even more notorious in the gaming world than he was famous in the world o f politics. He had squan­ dered $ 250,000 before coming of age. He became one of the most profligate gamesters o f the vicious days in which he lived. Some o f his finest displays in debate were sandwiched between ex­ citement such as would unnerve most men who had no serious business on hand. Walpole has given a glimpse of a typical passage in this extraordinary man’s life. He had to take part in the discussion on the thirty-nine articles in parliament on a certain Thursday. He had sat up playing hazard from Tues­ day evening until 5 o’clock on Wednes­ day afternoon. An hour before he had recovered $00,000 that be had lost and by dinner time, which was 5 o’clock, ended losing $ 55 , 0 0 0 . On Thursday he spoke in the debate, went to dinner at past 11 at night; thence to a club, where he drank till 7 the next morn­ ing; thence to a gambling house, where he won $ 3 0 , 000 , and between 3 and 4 In the afternoon he set out on a jour- tr>.

This time his exposed toe escaped injury. “Why are you here in your—iu white?” “I chased Goodwin’s oxen from my bed, from my garden bed, to the grave­ yard. I will go home and get some­ thing else on—anything to please you, Miss—er—Ruth, if you will only make me happy by one little word. Will you share my furniture and my flowers?” “Call Mr. Harding and then go away and come to see me after school tomor­ row, and I will tell you.” Trueman made a horn of his hands and called Harding in his resounding bass. At the third call there was an answer from the house. “Now, do go!” eald^Miss Grayson. L e n g th e n in g o Bee’s Tongue. Man is often blamed for driving to extinction many sorts of beautiful I creatures, but the account is far more than balanced by the amount of good he has done for those animals which proved useful and could be tamed. Take the case of the bee. The bee lives by its tongue, with which organ It is able to extract the honey from flowers. Now, a bee’s tongue is natu­ rally about a twenty-fifth of an inch long. Clever beekeepers, by keeping only those bees with naturally long tongues, have succeeded in lengthening the tongues of a number of bee colonies to the extent of another hundredth of an inch. It does not sound much, but it enables those insects to do a quar­ ter as much work again in the same time. Man has done more than this for bees. He has given them ready made homes, where they are safe from wasps and other enemies; frames for making their combs without using large quan­ tities of wax for outside walls, and food during flowerless weather. Savin g the Money. In a certain parish in Scotland col­ lectors were going round soliciting con tributions for the kirk. On coming to a wretched l/ttle hovel they hesitated whether or not to enter, but finally de­ cided to “try their luck.” A hale old man greeted them, and to him they ex­ plained their errand, but he really had nothing to give them, he said. “Can’t yo gi’e up your whisky?” one Of the visitors asked. “No,” he said, “I don’t drink ‘whusky.* ” Perhaps then he could forego the pleasures of snuff. No, he didn’t use snuff. The collectors prepared to move on. “ Stop a bit!” cried the old fellow. “I pay Sandy, the barber, twopence every Saturday night for shaving me. Tell the meenister he can have the two­ pence if he’ll come and shave me him­ self!” The Student’s Prayer, There was long ago a divinity hall presided over by a most amiable and dignified professor. On certain days the senior students opened the proceed­ ings of the day with prayer. One morn­ ing a raw youth from a remote re­ gion performed this duty, and it was a memorable occasion. None who were present can forget how the venerable professor turned and gazed on the un­ tutored lad, who prayed for him as follows: “ Lord, have mercy on our professor, for he is weak and ignorant. Strengthen his feeble hands, confirm his tottering knees, and grant that he may go out and in before us like the he goat before the flock.”—“Twenty- five Years of St. Andrews.” W h a t C a r lyle W r o te of Tennyson. Tennyson in his prime was thus de­ scribed by Thomas Carlyle to Ralph Waldo Emerson on Aug. 5 , 1 8 4 4 : “ One of the finest looking men in the world. A great shock of rough, dusty dark hair; bright, laughing, hazel eyes; mas­ sive aquiline face—most massive, yet most delicate, of sallow brown com­ plexion, almost Indian looking; clothes cynically loose, free and easy; smokes infinite tobacco. His voice is musically metallic, fit for loud laughter and pierc­ ing wail and all that may lie between; speech and speculation free and plen­ teous. I do not meet in these late dec­ ades such company over a pipe.” W hen (he Cat Wan Sacred.

W atch Owner’s Pride. “Then you do not regard him as trustworthy?” “ I should not go so far as to say he is not trustworthy, but he is the kind of man who will set his watch at 11:30 o’clock and then call your attention to the manner in which It keeps time when the 12 o’clock whistle blows.”— Washington Star. The B a r k of a Dog. Strangely enough, barking, which seems to us so characteristic of the dog, is not one o f Its natural sounds at all. No wild dogs bark, and, what Is more remarkable, if dogs are Isolated for a long time from their human mas­ ters they seem to lose the faculty. Thus a number of dogs turned loose on Juan Fernandez island were found iu thirty-three years to have complete­ ly lost the habit, but to be able to re­ acquire it. On the other hand, wolf puppies, ns well as young wild dogs, if reared among tame ones, readily learn to bark. It almost seems as if the sound were differentiated from the howling and yelping natural to the wild canida) in order to communicate with man and serve his purpose. It is worth observing that the habit can be eliminated when desired, as in some breeds of dogs favored by poachers.

WHERE PAIN MOST HURTS. ..lUj >0 Extrem e Sensitiveness of the Fifth and Dental Nerves. *\ Which part of the r „.r * the most sensitive to pain? A sharp definition must be drawn here between irritation and pain. Irri­ tation is not pain, but only a frequent cause of it. Thus, a crumb lodged in the larynx near the vocal cords pro­ duced violent irritation and prolonged coughing, which often results in actual pain. So, too, a fly or speck of dust in the eye sets up violent irritation and Inflammation, followed by acute pain. Of the surface of the body, the finger tips and the end o f the tongue are most sensitive. For instance, a burn on the fingers is much more painful than one on the back would be, while one on the tongue would be more painful still. Deep wounds are not painful, as a rule, save as regards the surface in­ jury. Of pains not caused by external Injuries, neuralgia of the fifth nerve, the one which supplies the skin of the head and face, is the most intense. It has frequently driven people mad for the time being, and sufferers have been known to cut aud even burn the flesh In desperate attempts to relieve it. The rupture of the branches of the dental nerve in tooth drawing also causes agony so intense that it has been stated that no human being could endure it for more than two seconds at a time.— Pearson’s Weekly. l a Surrogate's C o u r t .

A recent traveler on the Niger writes: “I was anxious to buy some fruit from a native woman who came down to the ship, and to this end I produced a handful of coppers which I had brought out from England. I first showed her five, then six, seven and eight, but she pushed them all aside in a most unceremonious manner. More by way of a joke than anything else, I then produced a three penny piece, which she at once accepted, giv­ ing me in return just twice as much as I had asked for my eight coppers. I also discovered that she had a great partiality for white glass bottles. I happened to have about half a dozen empty soda water bottles, for which she gave me the same number o f eggs. I afterward found that any white glass bottle had this purchasing power all over Nigeria. The natives send them to Bidn, where they are melted and made into rings about three or four inches in diameter, to be worn either as armlets or anklets.” Mixed Eggs. Professor Edwin Ray Lankester was sitting in his office in the Natural His­ tory museum, London, when he was visited by an elderly woman, evident­ ly from the country, who carried a parcel which she handled with the most exaggerated cnre. She was in a state of great excitement and ex­ claimed: “I’ve got two of ’em.” “Two of wlmt?” inquired the pro­ fessor. “Two ’awks’ eggs,” replied the wom­ an. “ I’m told they’re worth a thou­ sand pounds apiece.” The professor, much interested, looked at the eggs. “These are not auks’ eggs,” he said. “They are ’awks’ eggs,” said his vis­ itor. “My son Joe found ’em.” A light dawned on the naturalist. “The kind of eggs which are so valu­ able,” he remarked gently, “are the eggs of an extinct bird called the auk —a-u-k.” “Oh, hauk!” said the woman. “I’ll pay out that ’Enry ’Obhouse as told me It was ’awks* eggs as was wanted.” 1 And she went away.” Not So Disinterested as Appeared.

The Famous Clairvoyant Physician Talks ot the Progress that «ias Been Made in the Treatment 01 Chronic Diseases in the Last Forty Years. Yery few Docwrs, who began their prac­ tice forty years ago are left to tell the story of the wayt And methods of those earlier times. The old saddle-bugs contained Dover’s powder, Calomel, Fink and Senna, the last given to the young to cure worms, and also to give proper religious bent. Bleeding, even to the point o f prostration, was an adjunct to the drug remedies. The Allopathic School held the fort for many years; it was finally changed and modified by the Homeopathic and Eclectic Schools, and the Galvanic Incubator. Taking all the different schools o f med­ icine, including those called irregulars, the Christian Scientists, Magnetic Healers, Os­ teopaths have failed to give ns any surety of perfect diagnosis and treatment of disease. They make lamentable failures as yet, showing their knowledge very imper­ fect and not to be relied upon. We still have heart disease, sugar diabetes, Bright’s disease, dyspepsia, rheumatism, paralysis and all other various Ills that seem to baffle the skill o f the phys­ ician to rightly name the disease or perform a cure. First, we are aware that wisdom and knowledge are the result of long years of toil and research, and that deep down in human life the loftiest truths are born. Dr. Butterfield starts out from a different standpoint, basing his knowledge upone spiritual insight into the causes o f you condition and the reasons for your suffer, ing. This spiritual insight is the incentive to all progress and is the one method by which the right remedies can be used to suit the case. The Doctor has been coming to Penn Yan foreight years, and has cured hundreds of cases that have come to him as a last re­ sort, and he has cured where all others had failed and hope had gone. He uses vegetable remedies entirely, which are as natural as fruit, in the system. They can be taken by any one, no matter how delicate the stomach. The Doctor cures some of the worst cases of kidney and bladder trouble, enlarged liver and heart disease, dyspepsia, rheumatism and all other forms of chronic diseases. All are welcome to a free examination. His long experience is worth everything to the chronic invalid. Dr. Butterfield will be at the Knapp House, Penn Yan, N. Y. on Wednesday. Dec. 3 d, 1902 .
