Dear Sir-—Three years ago I was suf-
fering terribly with inflammatory rheuma-
tism. Our minister's wife advised me to
take Vegetine. After taking one bottle I
was entirely relieved. This jear, feeling
a return of the disease, I again commenced
taking it. and am being benefited great'y.

Safe and Sure.
Mr. // It. Stevens.
In 1872 your Vegetine was recommended
to me, and, yielding to the persuasions of
a friend, I consented to try it. At the
time I was suffering from general debility
and nervous prostration, superinduced by
overwork ai d irr gular habits. Its won-
derful strengthening and curative proper-
ties seemed to affect my debilitated system
liom the first dosej 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
agent in promoting health and restoring
the wasted system to new life and energy.
Vegetine is the only medicine I use, and
as long as I live I never expect to find a

The following letter from Rev. G. W.

at present settled in Lowell, must con-

the wonderful curative qualities ot Vege-
tine as a thorough cleanser and purifier
of tiie blood.
IIydk Park, Mass., Feb. 15. 1876.
Mr. H. R. Stevens.
Dear Sir.—About ten yea's ago my
health failed through the depleting effects
of dyspepsia; nearly a year later I was
attacked by typhoid fever in its worst
form. It settled in rny bach, and took the
form of a large deep-seated abscess, which
was fifteen months in gathering. I had
two surgical ope>ations by the bast skill
in the State, but received no permanent
cure. I suffered great pain ot times, and
was constantly weakened by a profuse
discharge. 1 also lost small pieces 01
bone at different times.
Matters ran on thus about seven years,
till May, 1874, 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., by which your remedy is produced.
By what 1 saw and heard I gained some
ccfHenee in Vegetine.
I commenced taking it soon after, but
felt worse from its effects; still I perse-
vered, and soon felt it was benefiting me
in other respects. Yet I did not see the
results I desired until I had taken it faith-
fully for a little more than a year, when
the difficulty in the back was cured; and
for nine months I have enjoyed the best
I have in that time gained twenty-five
pounds ot flesh being heavier than ever
before in my life, and I was never more
able to perform labor than now.
During the past few weeks I had a
scrofulous swelling as large as my fist
gather on another part of my body.
I took Vegetine faithf.illy, and it re-
moved it level with the sui face in a month.
I think I should have been cured of my
main trouble sooner if I had taken larger
doses, after having become accustomed to
Let your patients troubled with scrofula
or kidney diseases understand that it
takes time to cure chronic diseases; and.
if they will patiently take Vegetine, it
will, in my judgment, cure them.
With great obligations I am

no new facts, the impression is
strengthened that the Federal mili-
tary force, both on the part of the
Uniteri States and Mexico, must be
maintained on the Rio Grande bor-
der. Apprehensions of serious com-
plication between the two govern-
ments is dissipated.
Secretary McCreery said to-day
that if Cofikling's Mexican investi-
gation was designed as a pivoted
point of another demonstration
against the administration it would
not meet with much success, as the
attitude and acts of the administra-
tion on the subject had been thor-
oughly scanned without discovering
any grounds for objection. The
situation of affairs on the border was
never more satisfactory than now.
The policy ot the government would
result in tlie complete removal of all
cause of complaint.
Minister Foster has been recalled
for conference, and it is generally
understood he will not return, but be
transferred to a European mission,
which he prefers.

Rome, Jan. 9.—The King of Italy
died at 2 :30 o'clock this afternoon.
Rome, Jan. 9.—King Victor
Emanuel received the consolations of
religion before his death. In the af-
ternoon sacraments were administer-
ed to King Victor Emanuel, who re-
ceived the priest with great serenity.
The King then summoned Prince
Humbert, the heir apparent, and his
wife, the Princess Marguerita, to his
bedside, with whom he conversed
a few moments. Afterwards the
malairy eruption increased. The
King then summoned ail who were j
in the habit of approaching him. He j
a.ldressed lo every one present a few j
words, and a few moments after died. 1
The news of his death soon spread
through the city and caused great
emotion among all the people. All
the shops were closed.

It is stated that Victor Emanuel

Pope. He was also visited by Mon- !
signeur Canni, the Pope's domestic j
prelate. The Austrian ambassador '

Rome, Jan. 9 —King Humbert I
has issued the following proclama-
Italians: The greatest misfor-
tune has suddenly befallen us. Vic-
tor Imanuel, the founder of the
kingdom ot Italy and its unity, has
been taken from us. I received his
last sigh, which was for the nation,
his last wishes, which were for the
happiness of his people. His voice,
which will always resound in mv
heart, bids me vanquish sonow and
indicates my duty. At this moment
there is only one consolation possi-
ble, namely: to show ourselves
worthy of him—I by following in
his footsteps, and you by remaining
devoted to those civic virtues, by aid
ot which lie accomplished the diffi-
cult task of rendering Italy great ana
united. I shall be veiy much in
need of his grand example of devo-
tion to country, love of progress and
faith in liberal institutions, which

Wine Interests of North Texas.
From thi Sherman Register.
The wine-growing interest is, we
think, destined to be one of the great
leading industries of North Texas.
If there is any natural home of the
vine, it is Texas. No one who goes
into our forests, and the adjoining
forests of the Indian Territory, and
sees the wonderful profusion of
"Mustang" and "Post Oak" grapes
can doubt the fact. The "old Tex-
an" has never taken the trouble to
test the matter, his attention having
been solely engrossed by the "cow
business." The influx of people from
the North is of so recent a date they
have not had time to experiment.
But enough positive proof of the
adaptability of our climate for grape
culture is furnished by the experi-
ments of a few German citizens.
Messrs. Ficlur & Widinan have on
hand over twenty barrels of Post Oak
and Mustang wine, which we think
is equal to any we ever saw. These
men being Germans and used to the
famous Rhine wine (and what Ger
mail does not think Rhine wine the
best in the world?) assure us that
these native wines, the Post Oak es-
pecially, are superior to the lamed
Rhine wine. They possess a body
that is superior to the latter and less
acidity. While devoid of the sweet-
ness of the California wines, they
have just enough strength and are
more palatable. The wonderful
adaptability ot cur state to the various
kinds of industries is well known,
but we think there is nothing that
will prove a more remunerative busi-
ness in the future than the cultivation
of the grape and the manufacture ot
wines. We venture the prediction
that in less than ten years "Post Oak"
and "Mustang" wines will be popu-
lar and sought alter by all wine con-
noisseurs in the United States.

having taken place at Sandy Point, j LEnd0RF,

commenced with a company of sol-
diers, numbering about one hundred,
who killed and mutilated their cap-
tain in a most horrid manner. The
governor and his family barely es-
caped with their lives by taking to the
woods. The mutineers released the
convicts, and altogether they num-
bered about two hundred. Public
funds and private property were car-
ried off and most of the town burned.
The mob got to fighting among

were killed. The hospital was burn-
ed and five of the inmates.
