FROM COL. L. T. FOSTER
Youngstown. Ohio, May 10th, 1880.
B. J. Kendall & Co., Gents : I had a very val
uable ambietoman colt which I prized very
highly, he bad a large bone spavin in one Joint
and a small one on the other, which made
him very lame ; 1 had him under the charge of
two veterinary surgeons who failed to cure
him. I was one day reading the advertisement
o Kendall s Spavin Cure in the Chicago Ex
press, I deteamined at once to try it, and our
drugicists here sent for It. they ordered three
bottles. I took them all and thought I would
give It a thorough trial. I usedlit according to di
rections and the fourth day the colt ceaited to
fce lame, and the lumps had disappeared. I
used but one bottle and the eolts limbs are as
free from lumps and as smooth as any horse in
the state. He i entirely cured. The cure was
so remarkable that I let two ot my neighbors
have the remaining two bottles who are now

B. J. Kr.vdall & Co.. Gents : The particu
lar cae on which I used your Kendall's Spavin
Cure was a malignant ankle sprain of sixteen
mouths standing. I bad tried many things, but
in vain. Your Spavin Cure put the foot to the

excells anything we ever used.

but it fcccius to me that individu
al exertion is us much needed to save
the drunkard aud his children on to
support missionaries abroad for the
Choctaw Iudiaus. Why then should
the temperance work hold a subordi
nate position in our church. Great
ends are wrought only through deep
consecration aud with adequate
means; aud among the truly great
reformations to promote the welt be
ing of mankind, the caue of temper
ance is pre-eminent; aud yet it lan
guishes for waut of adequate co-oper
ation and support.
The temperauce reform ought to be
considered a special ''home mission"
field for orgauized church work. We
do not wish to be indei slood us sav

Many who would become pillars in
the christian church are transformed
by strong driuk into vagrants and
criminals. This is within the range
of common daily observation; and
yet with a vast number of profess. ng
christians, the temperance cause holds
but a stibor.ii uate place in their es
teem. Among the impending per:D
which threaten the perpetuity and
prosperity of our churches, intemper
ance is paramodni; yet with a blind,
and most astonishing infatuation,
multitudes of otherwise good citizens
treat with indifference, if not with
contempt, the claim of the temper
auc reform, aud lend I heir sanction
t the suicidal policy of legalizing
and perpetuating the wasteful and

The drug-store liquor-traffic is bad

A little girl eighteen months old be
longing to Mr. Clover, of Tern, met
with quite an accident on last Wednes
day night. The child was iu the habit
of sleeping in a crib by itself, and as
usual they put it to bed, covering it
for the night. About i o'clock the
father got up to Bee if the child was
all right, finding it sleeping nicely he
returned for the remainder of the
nigbt. In the morning they found
that one of its hands had gotten from
under the cover and frozen stiff ;o the
wrist. A doctor was called and from
him we learn that amputation will
follow. Strange as it may seem, the
child did not wake until aroused by
the mother. ieb. City Press.

The river and harbor subject was
opened auew in the House on Satur
day. There was an animated debate
betwecu the friends and Iocs of the
scheme. Chairman Page, of the com
merce committee, submitted a resolu
tion iu which secretary Lincoln was
asked 1c state whether any of the
money appropriated iu the last river
aud harbor bill was not for the bene
fit of commerce and navigation;
whether any of the money had been
with-held, and if so for what cause;
and the amount likely to be on hand
at the end of the current fiscal year.
The renewal tit this vexed problem
was the signal for scores of members
m.'iuy of w horn had failed of rc-clcc

Speaker so as to ventilate I heir giiev
ances. .t'.r. Kassou, of Iowa, as usual,
wanted to amend the resolution by
inserting the words foreign and do
mestic' before commerce" in the
original resolution. He look the
ground that these words were ueccs
sary, as the Secretary of war could
not decide any public work unimpor
tant, no matter how small. Although
he advocated his nmeudmcut in an el
oquent speech, Mr. I'tige declined to
entertain it, aud loudly and vehement
ly demanded a vote on his resolution.
This was uot satisfactory to Mr. Hob
eson, who desired a chance to defend
his vote ot last session, and iu the
course of his remarks he attributed
tk ! opposition to it mainly to the pa
pers : New York city, and charged
that they were influenced by capital
invested in railroads which sought to
stop improvements on 1 ue great riv
ers of the country, sunset t.ox re
pled ui a sarcastic vein. He said that
the press not only of New York, but
of the United States, opposed the
ine itiire and reminded Mr. Robeson
that railroads were a strong factor in
the latter's district. Mr. McLane, of
Maryland, defended the bill aud took
issue with the President over the par
agraph in his message about his veto
of the bill last summer. Democrats
aud Republicans joined forces against
the Maryland statesman and per
Dlexed mm with inquiries, winch so
exasperated him that he lost control
of himself aud resorted to denuncia
tion aud abuse of his tormentors.
His action created considerable amuse
ment and he was 6urroLnded by a
boisterous crowd, which finally dis
gusted him so that he took his teat
amidst a storm of applause. Other
members of the commerce committee
rallied to tbo support o: the chairman
in defense of the resolution, aud des
pite protests from Kasson and Cox. it
was passed as submitted.
It is still early to speculate on the
next presidential race, but the vice-
presidential campaign is rapidly
loom'.ng up. Senator David David's
term expires on the 4ih of next
March, and unless the senate is called
iu extra session and a presiding ofii
chosen, the republic will again be
without a vice-president. The entire
range of perplexing questions relative
to the presidential succession and the
methods of elections and returns
ought to be vigor, nsly grappled by
the preseLt congrS3, and ettled def
nitely and finally. Business, as well
pelitical interests, arc jeopardized by
the present uncertain status.
It has been the uniform practice for
many years to adjourn over from Fri
