Mr. II It Stevens.
In 1872 your Vegetine was recommended
to me, and. yielding to the persuasions 01
a friend, I consented to try it. At the
time I was suffering from neneral debility
and nervous piostraiton, superinduced 1 y
overwork ar.d iir yular habits. Its won-
derful strengthening and curative prop, r-
ties seemed to a IF -:ct mv debilitated system
tiom the first d.ist; and under its per-
sistent use I rapidly recovered, gaining
more than usual health and good 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 system to new lite and energy.
Vegetine is the only medicine I use. and
as long as I live J never expect to find a

Mr. ii. R Sxkvuns.
Dear Hir.—About ten yea's ago my
healtli fulled through the depleting effects
of dyspepsia) nearly a >ear later 1 was
attacked by typhoid fever in its woist
form, Ii settl !'l in mv hack, and took the
form of a large deep-seated abscess, which
was fifteen months in gathering. I had
two surgical operations by tlie best skill
in the Stale, but received no permanent
cure. 1 sulfcied great pain at times, and
was constantly weakened bv a profuse
discharge. 1 also lo>t small pieces 01
bone at different times.
Mutters rr 11 on thus about seven years,
till May, i8,"4 when a friend recom-
mended me to go to your office, and talk
with you of the virtue of Vegetine. I did
so, and by your kindness passed through
,vour manufactory, noting the ingredients,
&c., bv which your remedy is produced.
t<\ wha' 1 saw and heard I gained some
coi'fi'lence in Vegetine.
I commenced taking it soon after, but
felt worse from its iflVcts; still I nerse
vered, and soon lelt it was benefiting me
ia o her respects. Yet I did not >ee the
1 esuits 1 desired until 1 iia 1 taken itf.iith-
fn 11y for a little more than a ye ir, when
the difficulty in tne back was cured; and
tor nine months I have enjojed the best

pounds 01 flesh being heavier than ever
belorc in my I if.*, and I was never more
able to peiform labor than now.
During the past few wer-ks I had a
scrofulous swelling as large as my fist
gather on another pait. 1 f my body.
I 100k Vegi tine faithf.illy, and it re-
moved it level a- 1111 the silt face in a month.
I tiiink I should have t een cured of my
main trouble sooner if I had taken larger
doses, afier having become accustomed to
Lei your patients troubled with scrofula
or kidiiry diseases understanJ that it
takes time to cure chronic diseases', and.
if thi-y will patiently take Vegetine, it
will, in my judgment cure them.

How the Texas Cow-Boy Lives.
A letter from San Antonio, Texas,
to the New Orleans Democrat, says:
,kOne of the distinctive features of
Western Texas is the cow-bov, so
called. Heretofore there have been
but few enclosed pastures. The cattle
and horses have ranged at will over
the prairies, and when a noithcr pre-
vails they become widely scattered.
When the spring of the year returns,
then a dozen or more of the young
men of a neighborhood mount their
mustangs, taking each a spare horse,
the company having several sumpter
horses, scour the prai ies for many
miles, sometimes fifty or sixty in one
direction. These excursions last
about ten days or tw<> weeks. They
bivouac at night, cook their own
meals, seldom enter a house, drink
quantities < f black coffee, generally
without sugar, kill a yearling when
they need meat, and are truly r ugh
and ready riders. This kind of life
seems to have an inexpressible charm
for the young men. It is an exciting
scene to see them in full chase, with
their lariats whirling over their heads,
their mustangs as much excited by
the race as themselves. From this
school cr<mes the noted Texas ranger,
and it would be hard to fitul a hotter
training for a cavalry soldier. Their
| spl ndid qualities were exhibited 011
many a I ard fought battle field
| during our late unpL asantuess.
The Kind of Girl Pocahontas Was.
J. H. Wheeler, the North Carolina
historian, in his account of the early
times and men of Albemarle county,
quotes from Stranchey's (secretary
of the colony of Virginia in 1610)
"History of Travaile" the following
notice of the young Indian princess:
"The young women go not shadowed
in their own company until they be
nigh eleven or twelve returns of the
leaf old, nor are they much ashamed
thereof; and Pocahontas, a well fea-
tured but wanton young girl, Pow-
hattan's daughter, sometimes resort-
ing to oar fort, of the age of ten or
twelve years, got the boys forth with
j her into the market place, and made
I them wheel, falling on their hands,
j turning their heels upward, whom she
would follow and wheel so herself,
naked as she wa , all the fort over.
The great Kino Powhatan called a
young daughter of his, whom he
loved so well, Pocahontas, which
may signify a little wanton."
Singular Froak of Nature.
From Dr. Elmore we learn that
1 there was a chilti born in this vicin-
j ity a few weeks since entirely devoid
! of true skin over a considerable
i portion of the lumbar region of the
! back, the skin being covered with a
j delicate serous membrane, the space
i under which is occupied with fluid
i seemingly communicating with the
J cavity < f the bowels. The spinal
J column is very much curved laterally
over this region, and quite a number
' til the lower ribs are detached Irom
tlie spinal column. The child was
tiding well at last accounts.—Pilot
