Dr . Stevens
It is a pleasure to give my testimony for
your valuable medicine . I was sick for a
long time with Dropsv, under the doctor’s
care. lie said it was Water between the
Heart and Liver. I received no benefit
until I commenced taking the Vegetine;
in fact, I was growing worse. I have tried
many remedies; they did not help me.
Vegetine is the medicine for Dropsy . I be-
gan to feel better after taking a few bot-
tles . I have taken thirty bottles in all . I
am perfectly well, never felt better. No
one can feel more thankful than I do.
I am, dear sir, gratefully yours,

Vegetine.—When the blood becomes
lifeless and stagnant, either from change
of weather or of climate, want of exer

For Kidney Complaint
and Nervous Debility.
Islesboro, Me., Dec. 28, 1877.
Dear Sir,—1 had a cough for eighteen
vears, when I commenced taking the
Vegeline. I was very low; my system
was debilitated bv disease. I had the Kid-
ney complaint, and was very nervous—
cough bad, lungs sore. When I had ta-
ken one bottle I found it was helping me;
it has helped my cough, and it strength-
ens me. I am now able to do my work .
Never have found any thing like the Vege-
etine. I know it is every thing it is re-
commended to be

Mr. H. R. Stevens:—
Dear Sir,—I have used your Vegetine
for Sick Headache, and been greatly ben

The Moffet Bell Punch.
An item has been going the rounds
of the press that the Moffett bell
punch was proving a failure in Vir-
ginia, the income from the sale of
liquor having fallen off perceptibly
since its adoption. The following
from a late issue cf the Lexington
Gazette, shows it is a decided suc-
cess, and more than meets the expec-
tations of the most sanguine. We
trust our Legislature will adapt our
laws to the introduction ot this sys-
tem of taxation in Texas. It would
enable ePery city in the State to
cancel their debts in' a few years,
and add largely to the funds in the
The Muffet register has been in
operation in Lexington for nearly

tor that time is $940. This is a
monthly average of $235, or an av-

whole number of registers nine.
Four Negro Children Burned to
Heath at Tyler.
From the Tyler Courier.
On last Sunday night four orphan
negro children wete burned to death
in a house occupied by Henderson
Howard, coloted. It was situated
on Col. T. R. Bonner’s lot in the
northwest part of the city. The par-
ticulars are about as follows.
Howard aud his wife left the chil-
dren at the house, and went to
church. Soon afterwards the oldest,
a girl about 13 years old, went to
the nearest house for fire to light a
lamp or candle. At half past nine
o’clock the house was discovered to
be on fire. Several persons ran to
it and found the door fastened from
the inside, and the building so near-
ly consumed that efforts to check the
fire were fruitless. Nothing was
heard from the children. It was not
known that the children were in the

Headache .—There are various causes
for headache, as derangement of the cir-

the yarious causes of this complaint,

Washington, May 6.—According
to the observation of Prof. Newcomb
and his assistant, the second internal
contact of Mercury with the western
edge of the sun, occurred at 33 min.
and 5 sec. past 5 o’clock this eve-

2 min. and 50 sec. later. The plan-

larger than a silver half dollar. Gen-

there could not have been a better
day for the observation. Prof. East-

Hall superintended the taking of

The treasury department continues

persons entitled to large sums of in-

and taken greenbacks instead. A
gentleman collecting interest at the

made a special request for green-

that Gen. Burke, formerly of the
