Oh, now we see those men of the West—
Those blue-clad men in the Hornets' Nest!
The heart of a nation seems to swell
In the cheer that answers that rebel yell!
Behold them rising rank on rank
From behind this low and sunken bank
The red flame leaps along their line—
See the artillery burst and shine—
Oh, God ! how quick they melt away,
Heroes in blue—heroes in gray!"
Thus spoke the guide, a tall, gaunt man.
If the wind that sighs over our prairies
No longer is solemn with knells, But lovely with flowers and fairies,
And sweet with the calm Sabbath bells:
Leads love to the bridal of pride,
Our heroes drank deeply and died. ****** Where they roam on the slopes of the mountain
That only by angels is trod, Where they muse by the crystalline fountain
That springs in the garden of God, Are they lost in unspeakable splendor?
Do they never look back and regret? Ah, the valiant are constant and tender,
And Honor can never forget.
Divine in their pitying sadness
They grieve for their comrades of earth; They will hear us and start into gladness,
And echo the notes of our mirth; They will lift their white hands with a blessing
We shall know by the tear that it brings— The rapture of friendship confessing
With harps and the waving of wings. ****** Ah, grander in doom-stricken glory
Than the greatest that linger behind, They shall live in perpetual story,
Who saved the last hope of mankind!
That languished in slavery's night;
Has filled the whole world with its light.
To the clouds and the mountains we breathe it;
To the freedom of planet and star; Let the tempests of ocean enwreathe it;
Let the winds of the night bear it far—
And honor and virtue are sped,
And eternally true to the dead.
Header. For the benefit of the unfortunate, if you never need a pair of crutches yourself, remember this little advertisement, for you will surely meet some one who needs just this kind of advice. You see by the accompanying cut of myself, that I need the best, and as this book is "all About It," I feel it my duty to call the attention of all mankind to this important invention. If we believed in inspiration instead of invention, I would say the inventor of the Cband'all Crutch was inspired, for after using this Crutch for twelve years, and seeing all the different jnakes, I know the before mentioned is absolutely the best. They can be lengthened or shortened, and every part can be renewed. When properly adjusted they have no equal; Parents are often unkind to their children by allowing them to use a stick because it is cheap. The hand hold is the place to rest the hand, and by that means swing the body forward. Stand erect; don't stoop like this little old man; never let your weight rest on the arm pits; that injures the lungs and stops circulation, and causes pains.
Use Crandall's Patent Rubbers,
made with canvas, to prevent slipping, while sufficient rubber is
mixed with it to relieve the jolting. It affords me great pleasure
to proclaim to the world a few of the many merits of the Crandall
Crutch. Chas. L. Cumminos.

Mcneils LIVER # BLOOD PURIFYING PILLS.
FOR ALL BILIOUS DISEASES AND BLOOD DISORDERS.
ARE YOU BILIOUS? ARE YOU DYSPEPTIC? HAYE YOU PAIRS IN THE HEAD? HAYEYOU PAINS IN THE BACK?
ARE YOU neither sick enough to be bedfast, nor well enough to enjoy life and perform the duties which your daily avocation may impose upon you? Are you subject to Queer Sensations which you can scarcely define or locate, and which, though not actually painful, are very annoying, causing a general depression, lowness of spirit, loss of appetite, &c. If so, we say: Bewake! These are nature's warnings—unfailing signs of worse to come, unless you give them heed. To meet and remove the cause of these symptoms is the special design of
DR. T. S. MCNEIL'S LIYER AND BLOOD PURIFYING PILLS.
They will save you suffering; they will save you money; tkey will save you time, which may be of more importance to you than money. They cannot fail if properly used. They are infallible correctors of the Liver and the organs which depend upon it. A great majority of all diseases, however remote they may seem from the Liver, are yet caused by derangement of that organ; very few of them, however, would be traced to that cause except by a physician, and he, with all his skill, is frequently perplexed, so varied and complicated are the forms of Liver disorders. Nor can we wonder at this when we consider the close relation which the Liver bears to other organs of the body and the importance of its action upon them.
The object of the Liver is to purify the blood by separating from it the secretion called Bile. When from any derangement it fails to do this properly the blood passes on to the other parts of the body, carrying with it these impurities. Charged, then, with this poisonous matter, nature endeavors to find another outlet for it, and usually attacks the weaker parts of the system, resulting in such ailments as Dyspepsia, Diarrhoea, Chills and Fever, Pain in Back and Limbs, Headache, Nausea, Debility, Boils, Pimples, Loss of Appetite, &c. To avoid this train of disorder, use Mcneil's Liver Pills, according to directions, and we guarantee a perfect cure. These pills are prepared with the greatest care, and are composed only of Active Medicinal Principles, making them safe and reliable for all ages and conditions. They are specially recommended for the cure of Female Complaints. Want of space forbids the introduction of any of the many testimonials we are daily receiving, but these will be cheerfully furnished on application.
DIRECTIONS: Dose, 1 to 3 Pills.
For Cathartic Effect only, single doses as needed will be sufficient. In cases of general disorder, take, before retiring, a dose sufficient to thoroughly evacuate the bowels; after which take, every night or every other night, 1 to 2 pills, as the case may require. Continue this fora week or ten days, until permanently cured.
