In 1872 your f',jjv7/w was recommended
to me, and, yielding to the persuasions ot
a friend, I consenttd lo try it. At the
time I was suffering from general debility
and nervous prostration, superinduced by
overwork ai.d irr eular habits. Its won
derful strengthening and curative proper-
ties seemed to affect my debilitated system
tioiri the lir>t dost; and under its per-
sistent use I rapidly recovered, gaining
more than usual health and yood feeling.
Since then I have not hesitated to give
Vegetine my most unqualified indorse-
ment as being a safe, sure and powerful
ayent in promoting health and restoring
the wasted sy>tem to new life and energy.
Vegttine is the only medicine I use, and

of dyspe, si.i; marly a year later I was
attacked by typhoid fever in its worst
form, li settles in un hack, and took the
form of a large deep-seated abscess, which
was fifteen months in gathering. I had
two surgical ope.ation-: by the best skill
in the State, but received no permanent
cure. I suffered great pain t times, and
was constantly weakened bv a profuse
discharge. 1 also lo t small pieces oi

Matters ran on thus about seven years,
till May, tS;4, when a friend recom-
mended me to go to your ottiee, and talk

so, and by your kindness passed through
vour manufactory, noting the ingredients.

What ho Thinks of a War With
The Sedalia Democrat publishes
the following interview with Gen.
Jo. Shelby, now a quiet fanner near
Page City, Lafavette county, re-
gat ding the apprehended trouble
with Mexico. General Shelby has
marched over the greatest portion of\
the Mexican Republic, and his views
thus condensed are especially impor-
tant at this particular juncture:
"Mexico to-day has got the best
President she ever had in aiK her
history. He is a brave, just, tolerant
man; he most sincerely desires
peace; he is most anxious to estab-
lish the closest sort ot friendly rela-
tions with Ihe United Slates. The
real property interests of this country
do not desire war All history
proves that even when monarchist
; governments go to war for territorial
| aggiiindizement—governments that
! .ne conducted with comparative
j economy and rigid supervision over
I expenditures—it costs a dollar to get
j a dollar. Every pound of ammuni
j i;on, rations, medicines, hospital and
military stores would have to be
hauled 600 miles. Every dollar's
wot th of advantage gained would
I co.st tts $5. Mexico is strong enough
i to require an army ot 300,000 Amer-
icans :o whip I er. The Mexicans
! are dogged, resolute, tenacious, fatal-
I istic, and know how to die witho.it
j a woid when they have to die.
Diaz fought the French harder,
oftener, faster and mote furiously
than all the balance of the so-called
Liberal generals put together. He
would not have shot Maxim lian.
He spoke of him as one who had
mistaken his calling. Mexico has a
population of nearly 9,000,000. and
I is an admirable country for defense.
| If aroused by a war of invasion,
I t,000,000 of Combatants nii^ht be
j raised ; say, anyhow,-500,000. The
| tegular army now numbers 60,00 ,
I and there are also under discipline
35>OuO i lira! guards, and 31,000 armed
| police drilled as soKiiers. Nine-
j tenths of the trouble on the Rio
j Grande comes from this side of the
j river. You don't know the river.
! Along it on either side is the para
j dUe <>f the cut throat, the bandit
f hiding from pursuit, the highway-
| man, the l.o se, cattle and sheep
j thief, the desperate border man, the
I herder out jf work, the red handed
Once ranchmen had no fences
around their ranches, and had to
employ a multitude of herders for
both cattle and sheep. This called
into beinjj a class of men who had
of necessity to lead a wild lite, to
ride well, to shoot well, to know a
little about law, to become inued 10
! every kind of hardship, and who,
j before they will ever settle down to
i peaceful work again, now that most
J of the ranches are fenced, will have
j t.o try awhile the yirtues of raiding.
I Already thev have organized 111
I bauds of desperadoes, anil the two
j companies ot State troops under
1 Jones and McNally were organized

! to protect them agnin t these very
j ex hcrilers which the ne«vspapais
! call Mexicans.
If this country covet territory let
I her say so and take it, but in the
i name of all that is soldierly and
! brave, and magnanimous, do not let
| her make the depredations of thieves

i lice 100,000 lives ami $700,000,000.

His object in moving troops is to
place such a force on the Mexican
side of the Rio Grande as will crush
all wlu> stir or prey upon his territo-
ry. He means to do what Old is
doing. He means to take caie 01
bis own house, and to co-operate
with the United States authorities.
If he is not kicked and spit upon
and insulted beyond all endurance,
he had rather feed American sol-
diers than to tight them. Diaz has
enemies on the Rio Grande. Esco-
bedo is prowling around San An-
tonio recruiting for the help of his
master Lerdo. He is particularly
dangerous; but he is cunning, and
he has sub-agents all up and down
the liver burning and working like
The entire debt of Tennessee on
the first day of the new year was I
$23.195736. This sum includes
the following questionable items :
War interest $4,000,000!
Interest on this to Jan., 1878... 4.800,000 |
Compound interest under the
funding act of 1873 1,200.000
Browulow bonds outstanding.. 3.000.000
Gents' Furnishing Goods.
Making the aggregate...811,000,000
'he taxpayers ot the State have
never admitted the equity of any of
these items, and when they are
omitted the debt is reduced nearly
one-half. The final offrr of the
creditors was to credit $11,597,868
upon the whole debt of $23,195,736
at six per cent. In other words,
thev simpl\-proposed to throw out
the war interest, the compound in-
terest and the Browdlow bonds, none
of which had been squarely recog-
nized by the people of Tennessee.
