Mr. James I. Fkllows : Dear Sir : During
the past two years I have Riven your Com-
pouua syrup 01 tiypopnospnitea a rair though
somewhat severe trial in my practice, and am
able to speak with confidence of its effects, in
restoring persons suffering from emaciation and
the debility lollowing Diphtheria, it has done
wonders. I constantly recommend its uae in all
anectlons or tne throat and luns. Iu several
cases considered hopeless, it has given relief,
and the patients are fast recovering; among
these are Consumptive and old Bronchial sub
ject, whose diseases have resisted the other
in oa os oi treatment. For impaired digestion,
and in fact for debility from auv cause, I know
of nothing euual to It. Its direct effect In
strengthening the nervous svstfm renders It
suitable for the majority ot disease. I am. sir.

And shall old Tilden dye?
And shall eld Tilden dye?
Then twenty thousand bald-head men
Will know the reason why !
Here's its version of Cleopatra and
She put hi in to her bosom.
Then she pinched his little tail ;
The serpent gave a wiggle
And the sorceress a wail.
And theu she cried, "O Antony I"
And turned exceeding pale
But the serpent died insiauter.
While the harlet went to Jail.
And something for our Irish friends:
TIIK BIRTH OF SAINT PATRICK.
An Irishman, who is not ashamed
of his own country, nor resolved upon
the destruction of this, sends ua the
following rhymed version of a good
story, which he has "copied fiom mem
ory." On the eighth day et March it w as, some people
That Saint Patrick at midnight he first saw the
While other, declare 'twas the ninth he was
And 'twas all a mistake between midnight and
For mistakes trill occur In a hurry and shock.
And some blamed the baby, ami some blamed
the cluck ;
Till, with all their cruse questious, sure no one
If the child was too fast, or the elocK was too
.Now the first faction fight in old Ireland they
Was x!l on account of Saint Patrick's birth-Jay ;
Some fought for the eighth, for the ninth more
Ap.d who wouldn't see right, sure they blacken
ed his eve !
At last, both the factions so positive grew
That each kept a birthday so Pat then had
Till Father Muleahy, who showed them their

Says he. "Boys don't be light lug for eight or for
Don't be always dividing but sometimes com
Combine eight willi nine, aud seventeen is the
So let that be his birthday." "Amen," says
'If he uxtn't a twins, sure our hist'ry will show
That. i.t least, he's worth any two saints tl.at

Then they all got blind drtr.ik which complet

A BRILLIANT PUBLICATION.
Frank Leslie's Sunday Xngazine
For May is a remarkable number of
this always entertaining, instructive
and edifying periodical; and is highly
creditable to the talent, carefulness
and industry of the editor. The 128
quarto pages present a vast variety of
delightful reading, interesting to all
classes and calculated te gratify all
tastes. There are good, solid articles,
replete with information; essays; se
rial and short stories; adventures;
sketches; 102ms; biographies, obitua
ries, etc., etc all deserving ef warm
commendation and scattered through
out are brilliant literary gems. The
illustrations number probably one hun
dred, and exhibit the best style of
wood engraving. The opening article,
"Mohammed and hi3 Religion," and
"Martin Luther," a biographical stu
dy, are exceedingly interesting. In
the department of fiction, "Be-Be, the
Nailaiaker's Daughter." and "Little
Hinges" are continued with increasing
interest; and there are several admir
able short stories by popular writers.
The poems are very meritorious; tbe
miscellany unusually abundant, as are
also the Religious Notes and News at
Home and Abroad. There are obitu
ary notices of celebrated divines, Re
creations for Sunday Afternoon, a beau
tiful Hymn (the music by Mendel
sohn), etc., etc; but it is impossible to
do more than merely glance at the rich
and varied contents. The price of a
single copy is only 25 cents; the annu
al subscription Is 83; six months, $1.50;
and four months SI. Address, Frank

More horses aro annually killed or
injured by over-feeding and by inju
dicious feeding than by starvation or
most other causes. In horses we can
delect as many dilTcrciit temperaments
mid dispositions as in man, though but
few horse owners take this fact into
mature consideration in tho manage
ment of their horses, particularly in
that part of it relating to food and
feeding. Some horses aro natural
glutton.?, and they must bo neon to
carefully or they will, at times, bo apt
to seriously injure themselves by feed
ing too fast, while much of tho food
they consume will pass through them
undigested, for the simple reason that
it is 6vallovcd before it ha9 been
proiterly masticated. Wo liko to seo
what is termed a "good feeder" (ono
which does not. ininco or pick careful
ly over hi9 feed), but then wo aro not
at nil partial to the ravenous ones,
fcjtich a horse ns the latter named will
divo into his feed with his mouth
wide open, and invariably takes more
nt a mouthful than ho can cither hold
in his mouth or properly masticate.
There arc several ways to fix such fel
lows, one vvay being to mix somo littlo
lino hay with his oats, while moisten
ing tho oats, or feeding cut food pre
vents him from pandering to his greedy
propensities. A horso with a delicato
appetite is usually a tender, delicato
animal, and not at all desirable.
The trouble with most persons who
keep horses, no matter whether on tho
la nn for farm work or for driving pur
poses, is they feed too much hay ; and to
Litis cause can bo attributed thegeucral
eluggishness often manifested by tho
horses until they have been working a
couple of hours, while the wind is, al
so, much impaired. Night is tho only
time when hay should be fed, espe
cially to animals used for quick work.
Even the slow plow team should have
but li: tie hay at the morning and noon
feeds, but give them a generous supply
at tho evening meal. By doing this,
your horfio will keep in better spirits
and condition, and free from any
tendency to "pot-bolly," whicli horse
men so much dislike to see. Field
A Sheep Farm iu Georgia.
A writer in the Atlanta Constitu
tion says that in 1871 he bought 400
acres of reputed poor land in Glynn
county, (J:i., and put upon it 100 sheep.
In 187:5, by natural increase, ho had
370 ewes and had tent to market 73
wethers. His sheep were penned night
ly, and every two nights manured a
half acre well. Since that time ho
has brought into a high slate of culti
vation 100 acres of laud that seven
years ago was considered worthless.
Since 1871 lie his bought 200 sheep,
and now owns about 1,800 head, lie
keeps a shepherd, who is paid to at
tend to his business and keeps a book
account of every dollar and dime spent
on the sheep, and finds, by casting up
a balance sheet, that it costs him ex
actly 75c per head per annum to keep
his ilock. They average him about 3
pounds of wool each. Lat year ho
clipped in May and again in Septem
ber, and the clip amounted to fivo and
a halt" pounds per head. Last year ho
sold in Savannah and Macon 8,000 lbs.
of wool, Ht an average of thirty cents
pur pound, including a few pounds of
Merino wool, which makes the gross
reeeipt $2,970. The annual expense
of the ilock was $1,026. So there was
an absolute net profit in the wool of
$1,CC1. Last year he sold iu thenbovo
cities iiinctv-two wethers a mutton
for $312, making a total of $2,00(3. Be
sides this, ho bus fertilized the poor
wire grass lands so that last year ho
cultivated eighty-four acres, and from
forly-ono acres in corn ho made an
aveiage of thirty-one bushels: ten in
Bugar-cauc that made fifty-sir barrels
of syrup ; fifteen in oats that averaged
forty-two bushels to the acre, and on

kinds of truck farming, receiving for
