P. J . HOLMES. ] fufford Spring*, QfiU l> W f . " AK E W A H D O F $ 5 0 given for a ease of constipation that cannot beliclped by the use of DR. H. W. JACKSON'S Universal Costive Syrup. Constipation is the mother and nurse of the fol-lowing diseases: Dj spepsia, Liver Complaiut.Head-ache, Billiousness, Insanity, &c. It produces conl fusion of thoughts, lailure of memory, and nervous-ness, and gives to the skin and eyes a dull, sallow-unclean appearance, caut-es cold feet, injures the spine, and impairs the health iu general. You will find that the Syrup is a POWERFUL BLOOD PURIFIER, and will do far more than 1 have recomineuded it to. Give it a trial, aud it will manifest its own merits in leas than six days, it used according to directions. Bitters, Pills, Powders, and Lozenges will ne\ er cure constipation. Thousands have used my Syrup, including cases of from four to twenty-two years standing, which have been cured with less than four bottles. Remember—it is not a physic but a regulntor, which leaves the system in a good healthy condition. Trial Bottles, 50 cents; Large Bottles, $1. Sold by Druggists. Office 99, Fourth-St., Chelsea, Mass.

JACKSON : Dear Sir—I esteem it a duty as well as a privilege to give my testimony in regard to the wonderful effects produced by your valuable medi-cine. About the last of February I commenced taking your Syrup, which has benefitted me more than anything I have ever taken before. Prior to that time, my' bowels did not move more than once in six days, and many times not oftener than eight or ten days, and then by compulsion; and I have even been conveyed from the water-closet in an in-sensible condition and subjected to powerful injec-tions and various medicines with but little effect. Cold feet haAe caused me many sleepless hours, but since taking your medicine that trouble has ceased. My husband says I have not been so cheerful for years as I have been since I commenced using your Syrup. I can truly say I have not telt so well for many years, and I attribute the agreeable change to the medicine, which is all that you recommend it to be. Yours respectfully. MRS. MERCY B. COOLEY. The above is a true statement of my wife's condi-tion and relief. JOHN W. COOLEY. The above statement was acknowledged before me on this 10th day of March, 1875. ERASTUS RUGO, Justice of the Peace.

Y e l l o w , f o r H o r s e s a n d A n i m a l s. these Liniments are simply the wonder of the world. Their effects are little less than marvellous, yet there are some things which they will not do. They will not cure cancer or mend broken' bones, but they will always allay p*in. They have straight-ened fingers, cured chronic rheumatism of many years standing, nnd taken, the pain from terrible bums and scalds, which has never been done by any other article. T l i e W h i t e Liniment is for the human family. It will drive Rheumatism, Sciatica and Neuralgia from the system ; care Lumbago, Chil-blains, Palsy, Itch, and most Cutaneous Eruptions; it extracts frost from frozen hands and feet, a»d the p o i s o n of bite* and Mting* of venomous reptiles; it subdues swellings, and alleviates pain of every kind. For sprains or bruises it is the most potent reme-dy ever discovered. The Centaur Liniment is used with great efficacy for sore Throat, T o o t h a c h e , Caked B r e a s t s , Earache, and Weak Back. The following is but a sample of numerous testimonials: INDIAWA HOME, JEFF. Co.. IND., May 28, 1873. "I think it my duty to 'inform you that I have s u f f e r e d much with n w o l i e n feet and c h o r d s . I have not been f r e e from these swell-ings i n e i g h t y e a r s . Now I a m p c r f e c t ly Well, thanks lo the Centaor Liniment. The Lini-ment ought to be applied warm. BENJAMIN BROWN" The proof is in the trial. It is reliable, it is handy, it is cheap, and every family 3liould have it. To the sick and bed-ridden, the halt und-lame, to the wounded aud sore, we say, " C o m e a n d be h e a l e d . " To tue poor and distressed who have spent their money for worthless medicines, a bottle of Cen-t a u r L i n i m e n t will be giyen without charge. The Yellow Centaur Liniment is adapted to the tougli muscles, cords and flesh of horses and animals. It lias performed more w o n - d e r f u l cures of Spavin, Strain, Wind-galls, Scratches, Sweeuy, and general Lameness, than all other remedies in existence. Read what the great Expressmen say of it: N EW YORK, J a n u a r y , 1874. "Every owner of horses should give tlie CENTAUR LINIMENT a trial. We consider it the best article ever used in our stables.

Castoria is the result of an old Phy-sician's effort to produce, for his own practice, an e f f e c t i v e C a t h a r t i c , pleasant in the taste and free from griping. Dr. Samuel Pitcher, of Hyannis, Mass., succeded in combining, without the use of alcohol, a purga-tive agent as p l e a s a n t to t a k e a s h o n e y, and which possesses all the desirable and properties Castor Oil.

We seldom get through with one j meal without having something come up that i is disagreeable." Sorely enough, Mrs. Earle's friend did have au opportunity to see and hear for herself. As soon as they were well seated at the table, i that night, Mrs. Jones said : "I am very sorry, Mrs. Earle's, that Susy should have made you so much trouble, this afternoon, by her carelessness." And, turn-ing to the child, she said, in a coarse tone : "Come here, you careless little jade, and 1 apologize to Mrs. Earle for making her travel I down and up that long flight of stairs for ! nothing. Didn't you promise me, this morn-ing, you little good-for-nothing, that you ; would try not to make a blunder to-day ?" j "Yes'm, an' I have tried hard as I could," !

BICHABDSON. days of '76.] Far above the winding liver, Stood a bt lfry old and brown : Looking from its ancient vi.sor, O'er the moonlit hills around; Watching, like a wary sentry, O'er a quaintly-fashioned town. From a church of granite, rising, Marked and marred by ruthless time, Rich with mossy hieroglyphics, Writing out in mystic rhyme, How a hundred years were finished, Of its history sublime. High within that ancient belfry, Hung a bell of olden mould, Brought across the seas from England, Bought with Puritanic gold— But it "chimed a nation's advent, With a tongue of treason bold. It had rung its faithful warnings, When the watch-fires of the foe. Kindled on the looming highlands, Burned with fierce and fearful glow— And the hand of brave old Watson • Struck that night the notes of woe. And he chimed the song of gladness, When tbe storm of war had fled, But the echo of the chimings Toll'd the requiem o'er the dead, And tbe brave old sexton slumbered, With the willows o'er his head. Years had come Mid years had ended, Son and father rung the bell, True and loyal to its keeping, Till the shades of sixty fell, When the nation heaid the muffled Mutterings of a fearful knell. Then the months brought war and treason, And the Watson brothers knew, As they stood one night together, That they then must bid adieu; One to wear the gray of Dixie— One to don the Northern blue. One trod slow the path upwinding To the church from cot and hall— Oue crossed o'er the winding river, To the highlands rising tall— One remembered loyal teachings— One a Southern mother's call. Years of blood and years of battle, Rolled their weary length along, Till the "stars" o'er "bars" triumphant, Hushed the direful notes of wrong, Till the "stars and bars" nnited Showed a nation doubly strong. Maimed from battle home returning, Came the wearer of the blue, And from out his cottage doorway, Watched the highlands long and tiue, But across the winding river Came no brother to his view. But to-night a spell of gladness Rested on the joyful town ; Bright the glow of watch-fires burning, Flashed beneath the belfry brown— Sad the soldier from his doorway Watched the midnight swing around. Midnight gleaming with1 the glories Gathered from a hundred years; Years of greatness, years of splendor, Far above the dreams of seers— But to him within the doorway Bringing memories and tears. Hark! from out tbe olden belfry, Long unused, rung down a chime; Up the shout from all the people Rose and met the runic rhyme, Till from every hilltop echoed Back the joyful notes sublime. One there was who heard the chimings From his humble cottage door; Chimings that he well remembered, He had heared them o'er and o'er, As he helped to strike the measure In the belfry years before. Up the pathway winding went he, To the ruins old and sear, 'Neath the doorway decked with ivy, Up the shattered stairway dear, Past the bars of moonbeams shining Through the windows oold and weird. Up to where a bell was ringing From its swaying, dizzy height, Up to where a form was standing, Mid the shadows dim and white, Up to where a brother waiting, Met a brother on that night, Down the creating stairway went they, Pown the pathway winding round, To the cot no longer lonely, In the glad, rejoicing town, Where the people met them, saying, "Dead, yet living—lost, yet found." Far above the winding river, Stands the belfry, old and brown, Watching o'er a home united, In the quaintly-fashioned town, Ever chiming, whispering echoes, "Pead, yet living—lost, yet found." " T H E LADY OF T H E HOUSE." tell her that a gentleman had called to see her, j and that he was in the reception-room, wait- | ing for her to come ?" "Yes'm," Susy replied, brightening, "an' a j gentleman did call to see her,—'t any rate, he j told me to tell her that he wanted to see her." "No, he didn't," said Mrs. Jones raising her voice, "he wanted to see me, and he never ] told you that he wanted to see Mrs. Earle. i He told me, himself, that he asked for me, . when you opened the door." ! "He told an awful whopper, then, so there!" i replied Susy quite triumphantly, "or else he , made a wus blunder than ever I did. 'Twan't my mistake this time anyhow, an I'm awful : glad on't. I know 'xtictly what he said, an' I never made no mistake about it. He said : 'Little girl, is the lady of the house within ?' | An' I said : 'I believe she is!' An' be said : | 'Will yon please tell her tbat a gentleman has I called to see her ?' An' I said: 'Yes, sir,' An' then I run right up to Mrs. Earle's room | an' told her. Now I should like to know what ; blunder "f made about it. If there's aDy other ! lady in this house 'sides Mrs. Earle, I've nev- | er seen her. If he'd wanted to see you, why couldn't he said so ?" The faces of Mrs. Jones and her two rela-tives were fairly livid with anger, when Susy finished her explanation and glanced exulting-ly over the table ; and the faces of the gentle-men were neatly as red as boiled lobsters, they were struggling so hard, for the poor professor's sake, to keep from a boisterous guffaw. Susy had unwittingly made such a capital hit that it was impossible for the | gravest of them to suppress a smile, aad two ' of them, in spite of their efforts, did laugh aloud. One of the two remarked afterwardn, that the most amusing thing of it all, was, the surprised expression that came over the child's face, when Mrs. Jones and Mrs. Jones's relatives looked daggers at her, she was so utterly unconscious of having said any-thing afwhich they need take offence. Susy did a good work, and the boarders ap- . preciated it. It was much more agreeable for ; them at the table ofter that occurrence, than 1 it was before ; and Susy seemed much hap-pier. When Christmas came, she was so brimful of happiness she could hardly con-tain herself, and no wonder that she was. Every gentleman in that boarding-house made her a present on that day, and she never in her whole life before had so many nice and comfortable things to make her happy. Mrs. Jones remarked to her cousins, that she couldn't see, for her part, what made all the boarders take such a liking to that little, stupid brat; but, whether she could or not, she never attempted again to humiliate the child in their presence. OCR NEW YORK. L E T T E R. Last year Professor Jones and his wife kept a small boarding house in one of our New England cities, to help eke out their some-what slender means for a livelihood, The professor a plain, quiet, good man, and aU of the boarders respected him. Mrs, Jones was quite attractive af first sight, for she was really a handsome woman, and she was always tastefully dressed; but she was very vain and self-conceited, and greatly lacking in womanly grace a£tl refinement. In fact, she was so deficient in the latter, that all of her boarders, except two women who were her relatives and who strongly resembled her, both in mind and person, liked her table bet-ter than they did her, for, to her credit be it said, she did give them good food and a plen-ty of i t ; which, as one of the gentlemen re-marked, "covered a multitude of sins," but did not, as she always sat at the table with her boarders, make them quite content with so unrefined a landlady. General Eftrle's wife, a very lovely, culti-vated find refined person, was the only woman who boarded at the professor's besides the two women who were Mrs. Jones' relatives. One December afternoon, a few days be-fore Christmas, a little 13-year-old girl, whom Mrs. Jones kept to bring and carry things to and from the tabl@ and to answer the door-bell, rapped at Mrs. Earle's door, and told her that a gentleman had called to see her, and that he wes waiting in the reception-room below. Mrs. Earle went immediately down, but she returned in a few minutes, and she remarked to a friend who was visiting her that the little girl was mistaken—it was Mrs. Jones, the landlady, whom the gentleman wished to see. And she added: "I really pity little Susy, for she seems to have a desire to be useful and to do just right, but she is not remarkably bright; and she frequently makes similar mistakes, and I think that Mrs. Jones is cruelly hard on her for it. She always takes the opportunity, when we are taking our meals, to tell of aome blunder that the poor, litttle thing has made and to rebuk* her for it in the presence of us all. It is a very unkind and unladvlike thing for her to do. It is not the right kind of so-cial condiment to make food relish. It dis-gusts aU of her boarders except her two cousins, and it makes little Susy very unhap-py. You will have an opportunity, no doubt, \9 »f* far yotwioK how l\ whoa Wt go d e va New York, Jane 26, 1376. PERFECT DATS. Now or never, as the poet says, they come, and this June deserves special mention as be-ing the best of its kind. The mortal who wants anything better than this cool, half shady, sunshiny weather, ought to go to Philadelphia on an excursion. He would come back ready to appreciate his blessings. The city has not had so healthy and clear an atmosphere in summer since before the Tweed ring was in power. . STREET SCENEBT. ! The street venders are not behind their brethren in Philadelphia in taking hold of the Centennial. They show their patriotism by ; selling flags of every size, tri-colored neck ' bows, and badges, and small cannon, and aix guns, to celebrate the Fourth cheaply; but ' the last notion is the Centennial pocket-hand-kei chief, whioh is nothing more nor less than | a brilliant United States flag, with stripes and Union fairly blazing, of a size to carry in the | pocket. This is the culmination of patriot- ; ism. The idea of wiping one's nose on the j flag is the very last way of showing respect for it that could have entered the head of mortal, and no one but a very smart Yankee, with the essence of three Jubilees and Cen-tennials concentrated in his bosom, would ever have invented it. THE ACCIDENT LIST, The investigation in the case of the explo-sion of the tug boat "Workman," which blew up Tuesday, showed tbat it was in sound or-der, but the fireman was late in getting up steam, and to save time put on all the heat he could command, then lay down on a bench near the engine and fell asleep. All the water boiled away above the crown of the boiler, whioh got red hot, and a wave rocking the boat threw the water in the boiler against the red hot plates with the usual result. Does any one of my readers ever think what a fear-ful loss there is yearly from carelessness alone ? The record in England with its small population shows that over fifty thousand lives are lost each year in that island through accident. What the list is in this country I do not feel like looking to see. But through the sheerest carelessness yearly with kerosene lamps, red hot boilers, unruly horses, and neglect of signals on railway trains, the num-ber who find horrible and untimely deaths ia oo dreadful to think of. FASHIONS. The new coaching hats are awakening the astonishment of our country cousins, and no wonder. These enormous edifices for the head belong to the time when everybody went in coaches, that is unless they did like most every one in those times and stayed at home. Coaching hats are the roughest of rough-and-ready brown straw, with brim and high crown about the size for a convenient bee-hive. Tho brim, edged with a silver cord and turned up at the side, with two long feathers shading the crown. They arg worn off the face, as one sees them in old English pictures, and a fresh young face looks very piquant under its load, but it takes a miracle of delicacy to wear one without looking fast. All the summer hats have followed the Gainsborough lead, with shady brims turned up, and drooping plumes, and branches of flowers hanging at the back. Ready-made clothing was never so cheap or so good as now. Women can outwit the dressmakers, when they can go to any store and buy the trimmest, prettiest of percale morning-dresses, with jaunty basque, over-skirt in the latest style, and flounces complete, and what is more, made as neatly as any wom-an would make one for herself for , what do you guess? Just $4, all told. An em-broidered linen suit, of newest pattern, only costs from $8 to $10, and what is the use of people sewing their eyes out this lovely June when such prices rule ? "How can they be so cheap ?" every woma» apks, for our drt ssmat-ers will not make the goods up for that mon-ey. The aecv^t lies in the division of labor and in system, madam. Girls who will not do decent work if engaged independently ta sow in a private familv, find that they roust keep to the mart ua4e> the f o o l » tUUoa
