EVENING STAR. THE TIME TO KARRY. The would be wise thla council give Let Lore's fbnd passion cool ! The man who early weds will live To think himself a fool. Tb? galling chain that frets his limb, Wears deepeT every day; Experience little teaches nlm who gives the heart Its way. He wisely weds who weddeth late A thrifty, unimpassloaed mate." When wrinkled oaks shall twining cling, With tendrils like the Tine; When ravens, like the linnet, sing With melody divine; When honev drops from withered leaves, And not from summer flowers: When winter brings us golden sheaves, And snow-drift sunny hours; When truth abused makes falsehood right, Go withering wed and And delight. The trembling notes young birds awake, Rise sweetly ints tune, As April buds expanding make The flowery wreath of June; So love begun in life'* young day; Matures with manhood's prime? Defies the canker of decay, \nd stronger grows with time; O. early quaJT love's nuptial wine, And all tnat's beat in life la thine. tirEditor* are of more use than philosophers.

He has tried it in over eleven hundred tuses, and never failed except in two eases, (both thunder humor ) He has now In his f>OMsex?ion over two hundred certificates of its vir ile. all within twenty miles of Boston Two bottles are warranted to cure a nursing sore mouth. One to three bottlca will cure the worn; kind of plmp'es on the face. Two to three bottles will clear the ?ysu*n; 0f biles. Two bottles are warranted to cure tlie worst canker In the inouth and stomach. Three to five bottles are warranted to cure the worst case of Erysipelas. One to two bottles are warranted to cure all humor In the ?ves. Two bottles'are warranted to cure running of the ear? and blotches among the hair. Four to six bottlea are warranted to core corrupt aad running ulcers One bottle will cure soaly eruption of the skin. Two to three bottles are warranted to cure the worst case of ringworm. Two to three bottles are warranted to cure the most desperate case of rheumatism Three to four bottles are warranted to euro the ?alt rheum. Five to eight bottles will cure the worst canes of aerofula. A benefit Is always experienced from the firei bottle, and a perfect cure is warranted when the above quantity Is taken. Reader, 1 peddled over a thcuband bottles of this In the vicinity of Boston. I know the effect of It In every esse So sure as wnter will extin guish fire, so sure will this cure humor. 1 never sold a bottle of it but that sold another; after a trial It always speaks for itself. There are two things about this herb that appears to me aurpils itig; first that it crows in our pastures, la bome places quite plentiful, and yet Its value has never ueen known until I discovered It la 1?16?second, that it should cure all kinds of humor. In order to give some Idea of the sudden rlst and great popularity of tbe discovery, I will state that In April, 1853, I peddled It. ana sold about? bottles per day?la April, 1654, I sold over l.OtO bottles per day of it. Some of the wholesale Druggists who haveboea In business twenty and thirty years, say that no thing In the annals of patent medicines was ever like it. There is a universal praise of It from all quarters. In my own practice I always kept it strictly for humors?but since Its Introduction as a general family medicine, great and wonderful virtues have oeen found In it that I never suspected Several cases of epileptic fits?a disease which was always considered Incurable, have been cured by a few bottles. O, what a mercy If it will prove effectual In all cases of that awful malady?there arc but few who have seen more of It than 1 have. I know of several cases of Dropsv, all of them aged people cured by It For the various diseases or the Liver, Sick Headache. Dyspepsia, Asthma, Fever and Ague. Pain in the Side. Diseases of tbe Spine, and particularly In dlsea>es of the Kid neys, Ac., the discovery has done more good than any medicine ever known No change of diet ever necessary?eat the best you can get and enough of It.
