with a delightful semi-tropical olimate,
a comparatively fertile soil, and a large

Cave ol Su Paul, which is fifteen feet
in diameter and twelto feet deep,

The island of Malta has a dense
population, numbering ono hundred
and fifty thousand, of which nearly a
balf aro residents of Vallttta, and
many aio gathered in villages and
communities. Thoy aro a frugal
people, and aro engaged in gardening
and trade. Old ideas and customs pre
vail among tbem. Tho Italian lan
guage is generally spoken by the belter
classes, although the nalivo tongue is
mixed ono. They are devoted to the
affairs of Church, and sustain excellent
schools and social institutions.
In matters of amusements the tastes
of the English society dominate,
among whom Italian opera and balls
are held in high favor. Tho carnival
sensor, however, which occurs in tlio
month of Kebruury, reprt-senls tho
height of popular enjoyment, tho great
features of which seem to be proctssions
of peoplo in grotesque costumes and
with bands of musio, making a perfect
pandemonium of thu plica for days
together. It is at this timo that every

The Swift Specific Co., Atlanta, Ga.:
During the spring of 1871, while working
In the field at my home In Morgan county,
Ga., I pulled off my shoes to give my feet
rest. Unfortunately, I walked Into a clump
of poison oalc, and In a few days my feet
were in a terrible condition, and I could not
put on a shoe because of the soreness and
swelling. I was treated as poison oaV cases
usually are, and e erythlng was healed up.
About the same time the following spring,
1873, my feet became sore again, as at first,
and every succeeding spring for five years
brought back the same condition of the dis
ease, only each time It became more dis
tressing, because I began to think it was a
lifetime trouble. Finally, I was Induced to
try Swift's Specific. I took six bottles, and
to-day am entirely well. My improvement
was gradual from the first, nnd no evidence
of the disease remains, I shall take pleas
ure in testifying as to Us curative proper

istence. Yours truly, J, L. Morgan.
