Mr. II. II. Stkvkks :
Dear Sir, I wish to give you this testimony,
that you may know wiiat Yegetiue has done
for me. 'Alxiut two years ao a small sore
came on mv log : it soon became a large Clcer,
so trouble some that I consulted the doctor,
but I got no relief, growing worse from day to
day. I Buffered terribly ; I could not rest day
or night ; 1 was so reduced my friends thought
I would never recover ; I consulted a doctor at
Columbus. 1 followed his advice : it did no
good. I can truly say I was discouraged. At
this time I was looking over my newspaper ; I
caw your advertisement of Vegeline, the
"Oreat Blood l'urifier" for cleansiug the blood
from all impurities, curing Humors, Cleers. &c.
I said to iiiy family, I will try some oLthe Yeg
etiue. Before 1 had used the first bottle I be
gan to feel better. I made up my mind I bad
got the right medicine at last. I could now
leep well nights. I continued taking the Veg
etiue. I took thirteen bottles. My health is
L'ood. The Fleer is gone, nd I am able to at
tend to my bufiness. I paid about four hun
dred dollars for medicine and doctors before I
bought the vegetine. I have recommended
Yegetiue to others with good success. 1 al
ways keep a bottle of it in the house now. It
is a mont excellent medicine.

Dear Sir.- I feel It my duty to say one word
in regard to the great bene lit 1 have received

one of the greatest sufferers for the last eight
years that ever could be living. I do sincerely
ihank my God and your Yegetiue for the relief
I have got. The Htieumalixin lias pained me to
sueli an extent, that my feet broke out insures.
For the bust three years 1 haye not been able to

work as well as ever 1 did, and I must say I owe

LARRY D00LAVS TIGER UXTST.
AN EAST TJfDIAN STOKY.
Two of us were walking down the
Koraie Pass my friend Fairlegh and I
one mor ring early in February, 1860.
I was on my way to Bombay, to catch
the mail steamer that was to convey me
back to old England, after an absence
of five years, during which I had suffer
ed much hardship and exposure in the
memorable Indian mutiny, and was now
bundled out of the country as fast a3 I
could go, with a year's leave on half
pay, and a medical certilicate which
made out that I was nearly in articulo
At two stages from Nagpore, I met
my old friend Fairlegh, and, after stay
.wg one night with him, he accompanied
me as far as the first dak bungalow to
wards Nagpore, that of Koraie.
As we stood on the top of the pass
nd looked over the varied landscape cf
miles upon miles of dark forest, inter
sected by numerous jungle streams that
lay beneath us, and upon the little vil
lage lying at the foot of the ghaut wre
were descending, my friend said:
"I never came down to Koraie with
out thinking of a trick we played on a
young Irishman, belonging to a detach
ment which marched through here 9
year or two ago ou their way to some
station in Madras. The officers were a
very jolly, hospitable set of fellows, and
one was an old acquaintance of mine,
and whilst we were in company, which
was for three or four days, they insisted
on ry joining them at mess. The first
me d I took with them was breakfast,
and there was something in the way of
brawn on the table. Now, I never
touch pig in any shape or way in this
3ountry, so I was not going to be tenmt
ed; but my friend Mac, seeing me loci:
ing at it, advised me not to try it, as one
of them had shot a wild pig a week be
fore, and its inexhastible properties
were beginning to create a shadow of
"Here, Naidoo, what pig is that?"
called our Mac to the mess butler, a fat,
oily-locking Madrassee, who grinned as
"That pig, sir? "Why, that pig Cap'In
Andersin kiilin' way up de jungle darl"
"You rascal, I believe this pig never
saw the outside of this village."
"Mi bapre, sahib, what fur masta tink
I make cookin' bazar pig that fashin?
No, sah 1 that Cap'in Andersin pig got
'im plenty yet he big as one bufflerl"
However, I laughingly remarked, that
it was all the same to me, for I never
partook of pig in any shape or form in
"What, not a cut of nice ham or a
rasher from a tin of overland bacon?
Uedad, ye wouldn't be alter refusin'
that, would ye?" broke iu a red-haired
little man opposite, whose speech be
trayed him as a native of the sister
"Not even a home rasher would tempt
me out here. In the first place it i3 not
fit food for a tropical climate; and
secondly, it is looked upon with uni
versal abhorrence by all around."
"Ah, is it the naytives ye mane?
Well, then, I'd ate it to spite 'em, I
"Well, if there were any moral prin
ciples involved in it, I would do so, too
but in the absence of such inducements
I would, as I have to mix much with all
classes of natives, rather not depreciate
the esteem in which I might be held,
especially as I am strict with them in
matters concerning their own religion."
"Faith, an' what is it ye have to do
with their religion? if they have any,
"You had better not enter into a con
troversy with Fairlegh about religion,
Poolan. He's a moulvie and a pundit
all rolled into one," said Mac; "and
you've precious little knowledge of any,
except what the F. F. of Kill-'em-by-inches,
or whatever you call your pa
ternal place, taught you by the help of
"Killinchy, Killinchy, ye amadhaun
an' it's Castle Doolan ye mane when ye
speak of me paternal home."
"All right, my boy," replied Mac,
winking at me. "I say, Fairlegh, shall
we have a look around the traclr and
see if there are any snipe?"
"I have no objection," I replied, ris
ing, and we went out together.
"Now, look here, Fairlpgh," said
Macpherson, when we were out in the
open. "I want to play Doolan a trick,
and you can help me. It will do him a
lot of good, for of all the bumptuous, do-
everything, know-everything fellows I
ever came across, this one beats them
all. We have long been on the lookout
for an opportunity for taking a rise out
of him, and now I think you can assist
"Well," I answered, "I am not much
given to practical jokes, but what is it
I can do?"
"Do? Ill tell you whtto do. I've
got a grand idea. You know that nasty
old cantankerous camel you have, that
roars whenever any one goes within
twenty yards of him? Well, I want
you to post him somewhere ou a jungle
road to-night, and then, at mess, we will
begin to talk about tigers. Doolan is
sure to contradict everything that is
said, and to deny, as he has been doing,
that there is a tiger between Allahabad
and Nagpore; and thus well persuade
him to come out, and I am sure he will
bolt 1 he moment he hears the camel."
There appeared to be no great harm
in the trick, and I thought it might be
a good lesson to the young fellow, who
was an addle-brained rattlepate, and
rather a nuisance in the regiment; so
our plans were laid. The camel was an
extremely surly one; the mere sound of
a footstep in his vicinity was enough to
make him growl and roar in their pecu
liar way. I did not care to send him
very far out, for Koraie is a tigerish
place, and I did not want the tables
turned on me by -losing my camel; so I
told the driver to post him in a thicket
by the roadside, about a mile out of the
"Well, at mess that evening our friend
was in high feather; he condemned this
thing and praised that, and laid down
the law like a Chief Justice, and all tho
time my little friend Mac was winking
at those who were let into the secret,
and chuckling to himself with delight.
Dinner over, most of the party, in
cluding the victim, adjourned to my
tent, where there was a bright fire, and
coffee and chocolate for those who liked
such things, and grog for the others
who liked something stronger. We
drew our chairs round the fire, and Mac
began the campaign.
"I say, Fairlegh, any tigers about
"O, yes," I replied; "lots. Here's
Doolan won't believe it, he says."
"No more will I. Now look at here
now; we've been trapesing through
miles of the wretched scrub that lines
this dhirty ould wather-co;rse ye calls
a road, an' sorra a fut of one have I
seen. An' they tell ye ould women's
tales of man-aters at ivry turrn. It's as
much an imposition as the whole coun
three is an' that, be the phowers, is
the naked truth."
"But there is a man-eater on this
ghaut, Fairlegh, is there not?" asked
"Certainly; he may be throttling sora'
poor wretch at this very moment for
all we know."
"Thin why doesn't he come out to a
ghintleman wid a gun in his fist, who
doesn't care a rap for a whisker of the
dhirty spalpeen, instead of breaking
the skulls of these black nnygurs that's
got nolhin' in 'em after all nothin' at
all, at alii But what's the use o' talk
ing? I'd bet a tin-phound note agin a
brass button that I'd go through the
length and breadth of the land, and
niver see one."
"I'll bet you Fairlegh shows you one
to-night if you'll go out with him," said
"Castle Doolan to a cotter's shebeen
that he doesn't"
"What do you say, Fairlegh?" asked
"Well," I answered, "I don't know
about the certainty; but if Mr. Doolan
will venture out with me we may come
across one. We will see what my ski
karee say3. Here, Moula.do you think
there is any chance for a tiger to
night?" "Who knows? But the moon is
bright; we can find out by seeing."
"Well, get out the guns."
The skikaree set to work in a syste
matic way, which showed he was ac
customed to such nightly movements,
and we could see the Irishman's ejrea
"Is it going out to-night ye mane?"
"Certainly, if you wish it."
"And what would ye be afther a-doin
whin ye'er out?"
"O, we will walk along through the
forest to the foot of the hills. There is
a cart road through the jungle, and as
the moon is bright we may get sight of
one of the animals you artj desirous of
-An' it's trapesing about in the Jun
gles all night ye would be, whin it's up
in the marnin' and fall in before gun
fire, wid the Colonel a-swearin'at yezas
ye Ye not dressed afore ye're out o' bed.
Now look at here now, Larry Doolan 's
the boy for a tiger or any other baste in
broad daylight, but he'll be hanged if
he's going to give up his night's rest
"But, Doolan, you've got a bet on it;
don't show the white feather, man!"
cried the others.
"Don't ye talk about white feather,
Trotter, or ye'll have to answer for it,
bedad! Me oncle, Terence Doolan, rest
his sowll has drilled holes in Fhaynix
Park through more men than ye've got
buttons on yer jacket, me bhoy."
"That may be, and Terry Doolan,
your venerable uncle of drilling notori
ety, would have been delighted at the
opportunity offered to-night of drilling
another hole in a royal tiger; so brace
up, old boy, for the family credit."
"Now, now, now, look at here now,
Meejor, it's jokin' ye are entoirely, isn't
it, whin ye talk of goin' afther savage
bastes at this toime o' night?"
"No," I replied, "I am not joking. I
so often go out on a fine moonlight
night that you see my servants make
no question about it, butget everything
ready at a few moments' notice that is
likely to be required. I dare say, some
of your friends here will go with us." .
"Yes, well all go," shouted the rest;
and poor Doolan was hustled out with a
gun stuck, on his shoulder, looking a
perrect martyr, l was nair sorry l naa
lent myself to his humiliation, but I
thought that very likely the lesson
would save him from much troublo in
after life, for very often a good snub
at the beginning of one's career, if well
deserved, does one a lot of good.
Well, as we went along, these mis
chievous lads told wonderful stories of
tigers springing out of thickets upon
travelers, and how they roared to fright
en their prey, and quite worked up poor
Doolan 's feelings to the highest pitch.
As we approached the wooded part of
the road I enjoined strict silence, and
made Doolan walk ahead with me, the
others following. Every night-jar that
flew up made him jump; when at last,
in the gloomiest part of the road, we
heard a most savage bubbling sort of
growl or roar, very familiar to my ears
but electrifying to poor Paddy, who
stopped short and exclaimed:
"O, bo the phowers, what's that?"
"Look out, Larry, there's a tiger
coming!" whispered Mac.
"O blissid Moses, well all be kilt en
tirely! Look at here now, Meejor, I'm
paid for food for powther an' bullets,
but it ain't in my commission for to be
aten by wild basts like a knacker's
horse, so just roight about face. O,
the saints be wid usl" (An awful roar.)
"Let me go, Mac; stay an' be aten av
ye will. Mother o' Moses! come along
Meejor, like a dacint body, do now!"
Here another roar and a bang in the
air from my gun, which was followed
by a demoniacal explosion from the
camel, put the finishing touch to poor
Doolan's fortitude; for he turned and
bolted up the road, calling on all the
saints to protect him, w hilst we fired
off a salvo in the air, and nearly died
I never saw Larry Doolan again, for
the regiment marched early, and my
camp moved in a different direction.
But I heard from Macpherson a year
after and he said that Paddy was a deal
more bearable, and whenever he was
inclined to be obstreperous in his old
way, an allusion to the Koraie tiger
generally brought him to his senses.
"His countrymen are not often so
cowardly," I remarked.
No, nor va? Doolan a coward in the
main. I believe he was a fairly plucky
mai, and has since done good service
in the field; but it was rather trying to
his nerves to be taken out at night to a
jungle road, and made to listen to awful
roars by what he supposed was a savage
tiger. The whole thing was strange to
him, and was not, as he expressed it,
in his commission."

Mr. Halderman will be remembered as
one of the leading members of the last

Good-natured Sheriff Martin, of
Madison county, passed through tho
city Monday, having iu chargo the
Rustmeyer boys, who were found guil
ty at the last term of court, iu Madi--son
county, of murder in tho second
degree. The history of tho crime is as
follows: The murdered man's name'
was August Spriek, and the crime was
committed on the ISthday cf February
last. The scene was near the Rust-
meyer residence, tight miles from
Stanton. There had been no badblood
between the parties prior to tho day'
the murder was committed. Sprick
had visited the Rustmeyer boys on tho
day of the fatal occurrence, which was
Sunday, and they had a jolly time
drinking, playing cards, and indulging:
in wrestling, jumping, etc. It was
during the wrestling that Sprick, tho
murdered man, became angry and pro--voked
a fight with the young Rust--meyer.
The older brother. John, in

Sprick and the Rustmeyer boys en

the flame rather than allay it. Dur
ing this crimination and recrimination
the three were walking away from the
Rustmeyer place on tho road leading,
to Sprick's home. The quarrel precip--itated
another fight in which Sprick
was struck with a club on the head by
t ie young Rustmeyer. Sprick fell down,
and appeared to be in a dangerous con

what had happened. They took Sprick.

and gave all the particulars of the sad
affair. In one hour and a half the in
