After their remedies had failed to cure her, I commenced giving her Dr, Greene's Nervura blood and nerve remedy and in less than two weeks from the time of taking the first dose she was on her feet running around, and in a little while was as well as ever.

ULAKEWEIX'S LITTLE Everybody says the same thing, and from the unanimity of opinion of the doctors and the people, we are assured that this great and widely known remedy is just what our sick and suffering citizens require to restore them to health. All the doctors say that it does cure, and all sufferers from nervousness, weakness, poor blood, debility, stomach, kidney or liver troubles should give it an immediate trial. It is purely \egetable and harmless. Take it yourself and give it to your children. It will cure. It is indorsed by physicians because It is the discovery and prescription of the famous Dr. Greene of 35 West 14th st., New York, the most successful specialist in curing nervous and chronic diseases. The "doctor can be consulted free, personally or by letter. [For The Press.] * I LOVE THE GREEN EARTH. I love the green earth in its beauty and joy, With a love too ardent for words; The shine and the shadow, the sun-purpled hills, The wood and the song of its birds; The rivers that flow in their majesty on, The ocean to which they are bound, The voices that swell to the ear of the nighty The music of silence profound. I have money good store in my purse, and dwell Where smiles and good nature are rife, And all my surroundings are such as assi The trials and passions of life; And warm are the hearts of the friends whom I Unfailing the tributes they bring; Kind words, and kind actions, and sweet to my ear ' Is the chorus these loving ones sing. Yet sometimes. I think in my musings at eve Of a land I have never yet seen, Where light from the innermost glory shines out O'er pastures that revel in green; Where rivers so softly and peacefully flow, Like crystal the waters are pure; night never comes, and the sea is ho And life shall forever Of friends who are there, a beatified throng, And more than are left, to me here, And wonder if one who is dearer than all Is waiting for me to appear. And closing my eyes to the beautv of earth, My ears to its music and hum, I watch for the shining that gladdens their home, And wait for my summons to come. Thompsonville, Ct., Nov. 14,1893. THE COINERS. During the year 1848 the West v flooded with counterfeit coin. It was so well manufactured that it passed readily The evil at last became so great that the United States authorities requested a skillful detective might be sent to ferret out the nest of coiners. I was fixec} upqn to perform that duty. I had nothing to guide me. The fact, however, that Chicago was tMe city where the counterfeit coin was the most abundant led me |Q suspect that the manufactory might be somewhere within its limits. It was therefore to the capital of the West that I first proceeded. I spent five weeks in that beautiful city, but without gaining the slightest clew of the counter feiters. I began to grow discouraged, and really thought I should be obliged to return home without having achieved any result. One day I received a letter fPQm my wife requesting that I would send her home some money, as she was out of funds, went into a bank and asked for a draft, at the same time handing a sum - of money to pay for it, in which there were several half dollars. The clerk pushed three of the half dollars book to me, : r ^Counterfeit," said he, - To Cure a Sty. To cure a sty, take the white of an egg on a saucer and rub into it a small pinch of powdered alum.

They are"remarkably w§ll executed, but they are defioient in weight. See for yourself." ; And he placed one of them in the scales against a genuine half dollar on the other side. The latter weighed down the former. That is the best executed counterfeit coin I ever saw in my life," -I exclaimed, examining them very closely. "Is all the counterfeit money in circulation here of the same character as this?" "Oh, dear, no," replied the olerk, "it is not nearly so well done. These are the work of Ned Willett, the famous New York counterfeiter. I know them well, for I have handled a good deal of it in my time. Here is some of the money that is in circulation here, " lie added, taking several half dollars from a drawer. "You see the milling is not nearly as perfect as Ned Willett's, although it is pretty well done, too." I compared the two together and found that he was right. I supplied the place of the three counterfeit half dollars with good coin and returned the former to my pocket again. A few days after this I received information which caused me to take a journey to a village situated about thirty miles from Chicago. I arrived there at night and took up my quarters at the only tavern, in the placeT It was a "wretched dwelling 'and kept by an old man and woman, the surliest couple I think it has ever been my lot to meet. In ianswer to my inquiry as to whether I could have lodging there for the night, I noticed that the" hosfr'j^ve .a'peculiar look at his wife, and .affc^^to6:whispeBn^ I^aj» informed in tfe most Tihgracio^ wantter possible 'ifhat I a fced. - / N - - : • • O ' ^ /' .

It was a beautiful iuoonhght night," and so bright that I co\ild .see to read iWsnudlest ^vho difedia Bris-tol last week, nearly a centurv old, had lived under all the presidential adminis-trationis and well remembered the death ^nd burial Of Washington.; £] Ber faculties to a remarl ta&ed of thingsthat At last thro^ingmysfelfoiii plunged into a < loud, but conveyed to me the idea of some one striking iron with a muffled h&mmer. I rose up from my bed and went to the, window. The.moon was low in the western horizon, by which fact I knew that it must be near morning. The sound I hav£ referred to reached me more distinctly than when in the back part of the chamber. It appeared to come from some outhouses which were situated about a hurt-dred yards from the house. Now I am naturally of an inquiring mind, and this sound, occurring as it did in the middle of thejiight, in such a remote, out of the way place, piqued my curiosity and I felt an irresistible desire to go out and discover the cause of it. This desire, as the sound continued, grew upon me with such intensity that I resolved to gratify it at any price. I put on my boots, the only articles of attire I had discarded, and cautiously opening the door of my chamber noiselessly descended the rickety staircase. -A few steps brought me into the lower apartment, which I found entirely deserted. I crept quietly to the door, and unfastening it without making the slightest noise was soon in the moonlight. Not a soul was visible, but the sound still continued and grew more distinct as I approached the place from whence it proceeded. At last I found myself before a long low building,'through the crevices of which I could perceive a lurid glare issuing. I stooped down and peered through the keyhole, and to my extreme surprise I saw half a. dozen strong looking men, with their floats off and sleeves turned up, performing a variety of strange occupations. Some were working at-a forge, others were superintending the casting of molds, and some were engaged in the process of milling coin. In a moment the whole truth burst upon me. EJere was the gang of counterfeiters I was |n search of, and the landlord and his wife evidently belonged to the same ban<jl, for in one corner I perceived them employed, the man polishing off some half dollar pieces just turned from the molds, while the woman was packing the finished coins into rolls. •I had seen enough, and was about to return to my apartment again when suddenly I felt a heavy hand placed on my shoulder, and turning my head around, to my horror found myself in«the grasp of as ill looking a scoundrel as ever escaped the gallows. , ' "What are you doing here, my goocl fellow?" he exclaimed in a gruff voice), giving me a shake. i "Taking a stroll by- moonlight," I re* plied, endeavoring to: retain my presetfc®' Qf^indJl?*- pushing - open •, „ „ ... in after him.- ; ' ^ ^ ^ All the inmates of the barn immediate:? ly stopped work, and rushed toward us. when they saw me.

' 'He's a traveler that came to the tavern to-night and asked for lodgings;, the last time?I saw him he was safe in bed," said the landlord. The men withdrew to a corner of the apartment, leaving one to keep guard over me, I soon saw they were in earnest consultation, and they were evident* ly debating some important question.- The man keeping guard, over me said nothing, but scowled fiercely. I had not uttered a single word during all the time I had been in the barn. I was aware that whatever I might say would in all probability only do more harm than good and it has always been a maxim of mine to hold my tongue when in doubt^ At; last the discussion seemed to be semed. for the blackest and dirtiest of the whole came forward, and without any introduction exclaimed: •- ^ "I say, stranger, look here—you must I did not move a muscle," nor utter a word* "You have found out our.secret, and dead men tell no tales. I silent "We give you ten minutes to say your prayers, and also allow you the privilege of saying whether you will be hangfed or shot." iilbVi _ , , Suddenly an idea struck me. I remembered something that might save my life.; burst into a violent fit of laughter, 'in fact it was hysterical, but they did "lAnd you call these things well done, do you?" I asked; taking up a roll of the money. "Well, all I can say is that if you can't do better than this you had better shut up shop, that's all." "Can you show us anything better?" asked one of the men. "I. rather think I can. If I coiildn't I'd go and hang my&elf." "Let's see it," they all oried. , • This was my last coup, and one on which I knew my life depended. Lookeehere, gentleman," I exclaimed, taking one of the counterfeit half dollars from my pocket which had been rejected at the bank, "here is my last job; what do you think of it?" It was passed from hand to hand, some saying it was no counterfeit at all, others saying that it was. : "How will you proye it is a counterfeit?" asked one of the men. "By weighing it with a genuine one," I replied. . This plan was immediately adopted and its character proved. "Perhaps he got this by accident," I heard otie of the men whisper to another. "Try these," said I, taking the otheir two from my pocket. ; All their doubts now vanished. i , "Beautiful!" exclaimed some, did!" said, others. When they had examined it to they all of them cordially me by the hand, every particle qf haying vanished from their minds. carried lout my part well. Some ques-were, occasionally asked me involving some of the technicalities of the business; these, however, I avoided by stating that I was on a journey of pleasure arid would much rather drink a glass of whisky than answer questions. The whisky was produced and we made a night of it, and it was not until morning had dawned that we separated. ^The next day I returned to Chicago, and brought-down the necessary assistance, and captured the whole gang of counterfeiters in the very act. The den was broken up forever, and most of them were condemned to serve a term of yeara in the state prison. I have those counterfeit half dollars still in my possession,-and intend never to part with them, for they were certainly the means of saving my Ufe,A New York Detective in Yankee Blade. - ;i He WM Not Acquainted. ii%e was goihg out alone in the darkness IfaajUies between this world and the next; „ w^^r^an^clun^to Se 4 jWsomsL in heayen ^ -there isn't any-i know there." iThen;his father soothed him fondly and told-; him of dear ones, who were there and would be sure to welcome their little friend.

He will know me, won't he, when he sees me coming? And maybe they'll send him to meet me, and we can play together." ' 'A& you afraid now,, Artie?" "No, papa. It's all right.

"But ye have riot so learned Christ." He has just been speaking of the gentiles, vrho with darkened understandings, alienated from the life of God through ignorance and blindness, walk in the vanity of their mind, and then he adds this word to the saints. The Christian's walk or lifers to be the most marked and manifest contrast to that of the worldling; we are to walk not as other gentiles, bat worthy of our vocation in love as children of light, and circumspectly (chapter iv, 17, 1, and chapter v, 2,8,15). 21. "If so be that ye have heard Him and have been taught by Him as the truth is in Jesus." We hear Christ and are taught by Him when we hear His word either directly from the Bible or through His servants^ even as he said, "He that heareth you hear-eth Me, and he that despiseth you despiseth Me, and he that despiseth Me despiseth Him that sent Me" (Luke x, 16). We must, however, see that all messages are according to the book, and now more than ever must watch for the Messenger (Isa. viii,20). 22. "That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts." Or as in (&1. iii, 9, "Put off the old man with his deetfs." This old man, or carnal mind o>f flesh or body of death, as it is variously called, is not subject to the law of God and never can be. It is said to have been crucified with Christ, and we are to reckon it dead and have done with it CRom. viii, 7; vi, 6,11). It is the "J, myself," part of us Whogp acquaintance we Are to cut forever find kilo?? HQ more. 2§. HAri4 be renewed in the spirit of your Wind;" The new birth, by which we become children gf God, is the reception of Something we never had before, even Christ Himself into our hearts (John i, 12,13). Then we are to yield our whole being to Him that He may fill the temples, our bodies, with Himself and His Spirit, and so transform US by the renewing of our minds, conforming us to His own image (Rom. vi, 18; *i|, 1,8; viii, 29), • ?4, "And that ye put on the new man, which after God is Qredited in righteousness and true holiness." It is henceforth to be "not I, but Christ, who liveth in me," for we are his workmanship oreated in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before prepared that we should walk in them, these works being wrought by "not I, but the grace of God with us" (Gali ii, 20; Eph. ii, 10: I Cov: xv, 10). We were ohosen in Him that we should be holy (chapter i, 4). 85. "Wherefore, p'ltti^ipawy lying, speak every man truth with h'*\ ncighbot, for we are members one of anotVer." Our business here is the building up of the body of Christ. and this will never be accomplished, by lying, but by speaking the truth in love (verses 12, 15).

"Be ye'arigry arid sih nbt; let not. the sun go down upcn ynr.r v'-Hb " It must be possible, then, to be angry without committing sin, and yet in verse 31 we are to put away all anger. It is a different word in the Greek in each case, but neither word seems to indicate a work of the Spirit. Siii not is plain enough and is confirmed by I John ii, 1; therefore let our daily prayer be "Vouchsafe, O Lord, to keep us this day without sin," and let us expect Him to do it. 27. "Neither give place to the devil." All doubts and fears and forebodings are very apt to be'from him. Therefore, as one has said, never offer him a chair and consent to talk the matter 'over with him, but refer him instantly to your Advocate and hold no parley with him (I John ii, 1). Resist him with the sword of the Spirit and the shield ofvfaith (Jas. iv, 7; I Pet. v, 8, 9; Eph. vi, 11,16,17). 28. "Let him that stole steal no more, but rather let him labor, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give bo him that needeth." The eighth commandment (Kx. xx, 15) is emphatic upon the first clause. The second is supported by Acts xx, 35, where Paul says, "I ..have showed you all. things, how that so laboring ye ought to support the weak." Observe why we ought to labor, not simply for our own support, but to have something for the needy. 29. "Let no corrupt communication proceed out of yt>ur mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace upto the hearers." The words of our mouths and meditation of our hearts are to be acceptable unto Him (Ps. xix, 14). Foolish talking and jesting are not becoming (chapter v, 4), and all idle words must be given account of (Math, xii, 36). Who is sufficient for this? He says, "My grace is sufficient for thee." 80. "And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day Of redemption." Unbelievers may resist the Spirit (Acts vii, 51), but believers may grieve or quench (I Thess. v, 19). He is a Holy Spirit and Spirit of truth; therefore anything impure or deceitful must grieVe Rim. If He fill us (chapter v, 18), He will make us as sensitive to evil as the eye is to the least particle of , dust. He is our dear Friend and abiding Comforter to show us the things of Christ and guide us unto all truth (John xvi. 13,14). He jealously de-sireth usto be all for Jesus (Jas. iv, 5, mar^ gin). 81. "Let all bitterness and wrath and cl&morand evil speaking be put away from you with all malice." Perhaps we aremost apt to sin. manifestly in the line of evil speaking. See Jas. iv, 11, with Zech. vii, 10; viii; 17. But bitterness In the hteart is the most insidious, and-the Lord searcheth our hearts and understandeth all the imaginations of our thoughts (I Chron. xxyili, 9). We ean only trust Him to give us clean and pure hearts and then to keep them so, for, we cannot, but He is able. Wash, Lord, and purify nor heart And make it oleaa In every part v - • And when His clean. Lord, keep It, too, For that is more than I oan do. 82. "And be ye kind one to another, tender hearted, foigiving one another, even aa God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you." The love of God in Christ to us should constrain us to love others, for only thus can we prove our love to God (I John iii IB; John ]pr 12). As God was manifest in Christ, so Christ should be manifest in us to the glory of God and the good of others. Since God has forgiven ns oor great debt we should surety forgive the- little debts of. .othersi to us, for what comparison can there be between the and our sins agaitwt G«f .Belteringthat God hath forgiven, us (I John Ii, Salve inthe world fbrcuts, brulses,sores, salt rbeum.-Ayer sores, tetter, ^HE ^BOMP^ONVILLE press.

Mrs. Pauline N. Blakewell, of No. 740
Jefferson avenue, Detroit, Mich., says
" Three years ago I found myself border
ing on nervous prostration. I could
neither eat nor sleep. I was under the
care and treatment of eminent physicians,
but all to no avail,
" Happening • to have my attention
called to the wonderful restorative effects
of Dr. Greene'ssNervura blood .and nerve
remedy, I decided to give it a trial. By
the time the first bottle was gone I felt
better and was satisfied that it was doing
me good.' When I had completed the
bottle I felt entirely cured. My appetite
was now good ana I could lie
MKS. PAUMNE BI.AKKWELfc.
and sleep soundly, something I had not
been able to do in years. I can conscien
tiously recommend the v use of this
great strengthening medicine to ftU similarly
afflicted as myself.
" A year ago my little daughter was
taken suddenly and seriously ill with
what physicians pronounced spinal meningitis.
After their remedies had failed
to cure her, I commenced giving her Dr,
Greene's Nervura blood and nerve remedy
and in less than two weeks from the time
of taking the first dose she was on her
feet running around, and in a little while
was as well as ever. I have never used
any medicine with such marked success
as I have found in Dr. Greene's Nervura
blood and nerve remedy." -•.•jmmjm
