The Oldest Magazine In America
Although every one knows of God
ey'a Lady's Book, it is not generally
known that it is the oldest publication
in America. Established in 1830, it
has outlived all other magazines, nnd
might with propriety be called the
mother of magazines of this country.
Crray-hair men and women remember
it as an entertainer when their hearts
were young, and young people associ
ate with their first introduction to
stories of romance. And tne rising
generation find it as pure and interest
aa ing did its parents, ay, its grandpar
ents did in days of " Auld Lang Syne."
It is-an old and wellieinembered land
mark in our American literature, and
we doubt not that many of our readers
will recall with it pleasant memories of
other days. The young editor and pro
prietor who now publishes it, has evi
dently determined that all who seek to
renew their acquaintance with the old
favorite shall not be disappointed. As
viewed mechanically it is excelled by
none, while its corps of literary contrib
utor includes many of the best known
names of magazine writers. It certain
ly speaks well for it and our people,
that, notwithstanding the enormous ef
forts made by the publishers of the
numerous "penny dreadfuls," it finds
such a large patronage, not only in
America, but all over the world. Al
though its low subscription price ($2.00
a year) may somewhat influence its
large circulation, we are inclined to
ascribe its popularity to intrinsic mer
it, and we most cordially bid the old
book God-speed on its second half-century.
Griggs' Glycerine Salve.
The best on earth can truly be said
of Griggs' Glycerine Salve, which is a
anre cure for cuts, bruises, scalds,
burns, wounds, and all other sores.

eases, to prove to you it has no equal

BULWER LYTTON'S BRIDGE.
Where it Touches the Shores and the Great
Columns in Midstream.
'"What a beautiful bridgo between
old age and childhood is religion. How
intuitively the child begins with prayer
and worship on entering life, and how
intuitively, on quitting life, the old
man turns back to prayer and worship,
putting himself again side bv side with
the infant," remarks Sir E. Bulwer
Lytton, in his "Strange Storv."
Yen, but between its distant abut
ments the bridge of life has manv high
and awful arches, through which the
wild waters dash and roar in wrath
and desolation. Prayer and worship
alone do not sustain these. Nature's
solid rocks must lie unshaken beneath,
and human art and skill must rear and
solidify the structure overhead. God's
will is best exemplified in the laws He
has made for the creatures whom He
has placed under tlieir control. Neither
the child's truetful "Our Father," nor
the old man's "Forget me not in the
midst of mine infirmities" will alter
this by the weight of a single grain.
Science and art first rhnn faith nnd
irayer is.tbe order of Heaven itself.
Kvinitv heals through its nrpnt nrl
those a FPU. Is nre th riinmvorioa nf
man; not the vague announcements of
prophets -or seers. Is life a burden to
you? Does time drag? Is your power
to cope with life's problem and duties
weakened. You are not well. Your
blood is sluggish and tainted, perhaps ;
nr aniiia rtraatt in inrriirl or nvpnvnrlfml
This fact may have taken the form tfJ
dyspepsia, rneunuuism, yuui, umiHuu,
pains in the stomach, chronic head
ache, or any of a dozen other ills.
Parker's Tonic will invigorate you, as
fresh air invigorates those who have
been shut up in damp, fetid cells. It
is powerful, pure, delicious, scientific
the keystone of the central arch J of
tbe bridge of life.
