Uncle Schlegel and Mike Schnellbach
er got a tumble the other day that
neither of them will forget for some
time. Uncle Schlegel had been engag
ed moving away some Cottage Organs
from the Catholic Church, where they
had been competing for a position, he
got the organs away to the depot and
went back for the boxes, with Mike to
help load, they hail loaded up and Unc'e
had taken the lines and said get up, but
as he turned the wheel on the lower
side settled in a hole, the fore wheel
on the upper side striking the box at
the same time turned the wagon over
and sent Uncle Schlegel and Mike down
among the horses heels, where we ex
pect times seemed lively to them for
a minute. Each carry severe marks of
the horses heels about their heads, but
will live through -it with good care.
Uncle Schlegel says he don't want to
move any more Mendota organ boxes
if they all serve him that way.

Joseph A. Connor one of the grain
men of our place is pushing his busi

immense cribs of corn threshed out

to corner the rest of mankind in govern

every now and then, and whoops it up
lively to the boys, and the farmers too
for that matter, in good prices for their
grain. One of Joe's Warehouses at
Ashland is reported blown down, he
says it was empty and so long as it did
not serve him like "Thatch's", and
fall on somebody and make him pay
damages he doesn't care. One of
Thatcher's cribs blew over and broke
a man's machine all to little bits and

a new building. A frame shed attach

to examine everything I recommend.

form a tolerably accurate judgment of
all that is usually found in cook books,

estimate of the merits of your word, I
can truthfully say that I am greatly
pleased with it.

the old, well established recipes and I

Dr. Schenck Pulmonic Sjrnp,
Ska Wkkd Tonic, and Makdkakb Pilxh.
These medicine liave undoubtedly performed1
more cures of Consumption than an? other rem
edy known to the American pnblle. They are
compounded of vegetable ingredients, and con
tain nothing which can be injurious to the lu
mau constitution. Other remedies advertised
as citrus for Consumption, probably eoiiUUu opi
um, which is a somewhat dangerous drug in al
cases, and if taken freely by consumptive pa
l ien t. it ntunt do great injury ; for its tendency
is to confine the morbid matter In the system,
which, of course, must make a cure impossible.
Schenck's pulmonic syrup is warranted not to
contain a particle of opium : it. is composed of
iMiwerful but harmless herbs, which act on the
lung", liver, stomach and blood, and thus cor
rect all morbid secretion, and expel all the di
seased matter from the body. These are the
oi-ly means by which consumption can be cured,
and as Sehenck'S Pulmonic syrup. Sea Weed
Tonic, and Mandrake Pills are the only medi
cines which operate in this way. It i obvious
they are the only genuine cure for Pulmonary
Consumption. Each bottle of this invaluable
medicine is accompanied by full directions. Dr.
Scheuck is professionally at his principal office,
corner Sixth and Arch streets, Philadelphia, ev
