EVENING STAR SLEEPY HOLLOW.. BT H?1T T. TCCII1VAK. Beneath tbe?e ?.>ldea Mar* ekiee. , The river wind* through leafy (lades, 8a v? wdere, like battlements. arise The grey and tufted paliaadea. The fervor of thi'a sultry time Is tempered by the humid earthy ALd zephyrs born of summer'* prima. Give & delicious coolness birth. Thav freshen thia aequeatered nook With constant greetings, bland and free ; The pages of the open book All flutter with tlieir wayward flee. Aa quicker awell their breathings soft, Clouil shadows skim alone the field ; And yonder dangling woodbines olt Their orimaon bugles gently yiald. The tulip t>-e? matest.c stirs, Far down the water's mar^e beside, Ana now awake the nearer firs. And toaa their ample brancnea wide. How blithely trails the pendant Tine ' I he grain slope lies in green repose ; Throws h the dark foliage of the pine And lofty elina, the sunshine glowa. Like sentinels in firm array I he trees of like therr shafts uproar; Red cones upon the sumac play. And ancient locusts whisper near. From wave and meadow, cliff and sky. Let ttoy stray vision homeward fall; Bshoid the mist bloom Hunting nigh. And holly hock wide edged and tall; Its gaudy leaves, thonth fanned apart. Round thick and mealy stamena apring. And nestled to its crimson heart. The sated bees enamored cling. Mark the broad terrace flecked with light. That peeps through trellises oi rose. And quivers with a va?ue delight. As Mich pa.e shadow comas and goes* The near, low gurgle of the brook, i be wren s glad chirp, tfte som ted hay. Awl e en the warcii dog's peaceful look. Our vain disquietudes allay.

Nothing looks so improbable to those who have in vain tried all the wonderful medicines of ths day, as that a onnimon weed growing on the pastures, and along old stone walls, should oure every humorinthe system ; yet it is a fixed fact. If you have a humor, it hits to start. There are no 1FS nor ANUS, hums nor ha'a about it suiting some oases, buttnot yours. I peddled over a thousand bottles of it in the vicinity of Boston. I know the effects of it in every oase. It has already done some of the greatest cures ever done in Massachusetts. 1 gave it to children a year oid, to otfl peopie of sixty. I have seen poor, puny, wormy-looking children, whose flesh was soft and flabby, restored to a perfeot state of health by one bottle. To those who are subject to a sick headache, one bottle will always cure it. It fives great relief in catarrh and dizziness. Some wno have taken it had been oostive for years, and have been regulated by it. Where the body is sound it works quite easy, but where there is any derangement of the functions of nature, it will oause very singular feelings, but you must not be alarmed; the* always disappear in from four days to a week. There is never a fwid re sult from it; on the contrary, when that feeling is gone, you will feel yourself like a new person. 1 heard some of the most extravagant encomiums of it that ever man listened to. In my own practioe I always kept it strictly for hu mors?but sir.oe its introduction as a general family medicine, great and wonderful virtues have been found in it that I nevor suspected. Several cases of epileptio fits?a disease whioh was always considered incurable, have been oured by a fow liotties. O, what a mercy if it will prove effec tual in all oases of that awful malady?there are but few who have seen mote of it than I have.? I know of several oases of Dropsy, all of them aged people cured by it. For the various diseases of the Liver, Sick Headache, Dyspepsia, Asthma, Fever and Ague, Fain in the Side, Diseases of ths Spine, and particularly in Diseases of the Kidneys, Ac., the disoovery has done more good than any medioine ever known.
