HOW TO CURE CONSUMPTION.
THE PHILOSOPHY OF Dlt. SCIIENCK'S GREAT
IitEDICIN7 S.—Will people never learn to know that a
diseased liver and stomach necessarily disease the entire
system 7 The plainest principles of common sense teach
this and yet there are hundreds who ridicule the Id: a,
and continue in the course which almost Inevitably
! brings them prematurely to the grave. Livia•: as the
majority of the people do, at complete variance with the
laws of nature, it must be apparent to all that, sooner or
later, nature will revenge herself. Hence we find that
persona who indulge to excess In the use of very rich or
indigestible food or intoxicating drinks, Invoriably pay
a heavy penalty in the end. The stomach becomes dis
ordered and refuses to net: the liver tails to perform its
functions, thspemia and its attendant evils follow, and
still the suffering individuals persist In clinging to rho
thoroughly exploded idea of the past. Dr. SCHENK'S
medicines are recommended to all such. They Ming sure
and certain relief wherever they aro used as directed,
and all that is necessary to establish their reputation
with every ailing man or woman In the land is a fair and
impartial trial of them. Let those who are skeptical on
this point, and who hare permitted interested persons to
prejudice them against these now celebrated remedies for
consumption. discard their prejudices, and be governed
by the principles of reason and common sense. If the
system Is disordered depend upon it, in nine cases out of
inn the seat of the disorder will be found in the stomach
and liver. To cleanse end Invlgot ate the stomach and to
stimulate the liver to healthy action, use

It may be asked by those who are not familiar with
the virtues of these great reniedies,"How do Dr. Schenck'a
medicineseffect their wonderful cures of consumption 1"
The answer is a simple one. They begin their walk
of restoration by bringing the stomach, liver and bowels
into en active healthy condition. It Is toed that cures
this formidable disease. SCHENCK'S MANDRAKE
PILLS act on the liver and stomach, promoting healthy
secretion, and removing the bile and slime which have
result, d n mu the inactive or torpid condition of those or
gans, and c f the system generally. This sluggish state
of the body, and the consequent accumulation of the un
healthy substances named prevent the proper digestion
of food, andos a natural remain.. creates disease,
which results to prostration and finally In death.

digesthe organs, make good and rich blood. and as a nat
ural consequence, Ole flesh and strength to the patient.
Let the faculty say what It may, this is the only true
cure for consumption. Experience has proved beyond
the shadow of a doubt, and thousands aro today alive
and well who a few years since were regarded as hope
less cases, but who w ere Induced to try Er. SCHENCK'S
remedies, and were restored to permanent health by
One of the first steps the physician should take with

relies. Nearly all . .110 hare tat“ n his medicines in ac•

A WARNING AT THE BRIDGE.
In the year 1861, I was superinten
dent of the Howrick and Rocky River
Railroad. It was a line that did a
good run of business, connecting as it
did a gnat city with a flourishing back
country, and we run a pretty good
number of trains over the rails in the
course of twenty-four hours. The
daily trains were every hour, but after
nine in the evening there was only one
train until the steamboat accommoda
tion of half past three in the morning.
This intervening train was the Bel
port mail. It was made up at Belport
and ran as fir as Clifton, express all
the way. Belport was the large city
of which I have spoken, and it was
there my office was located for the
business of the road was all settled and
arranged at that end of the line. Of
course I give fictitious names, and the
reader may not expect to find Belport
en the railway map.
The 12:30 train, or midnight mail,
as it was more frequently designated,
was run by Earl Rogers, a young man
of seven or eight and twenty, who had
been employed on the road for several
years. Ile was the best engine driver
on the corporation, and for that reason
he had been elected for that train, be
cause there was a better lookout re
quired by night.
Earl taken all in all, was ono of the
finest fellows I ever saw. Frank, hand
some, generous to a fault, and very
Well educated. He had fallen into the
vocation of an engineer more for his
love of excitement and danger than
anything else, perhaps, and if there
was any particularly perilous business
to be done, Earl Rodgers was our man.
For some time ho had been desper
ately in love with Laura Domain, the
daughter of a rich old fellow, just on
the other side of the Rocky river, a
half a dozen miles beyond Belport.
This love was fully returned, for
Laura was a noble-hearted girl and
did not care for wealth and ambition
when weighed in the balance with love;
but old Domain and she were two, and
there was no probability of him ever
giving his consent. He had set his
heart on her marrying Prince Carleton,
a young blood of the vicinity, reputed
wealthy, and of an old family.
Demain's opposition naturally made
the lovers more determined, and they
only waited an increase of Earl'isalary
to be married in spite of papa Domain.
Earl was a faithful fellow and I was
doing the best with the company to get
an advance for him, with every prob
ability of success.
Somehow, I took a strong interest in
Earl's love affairs. I am an old codger,
and love matters are rather out of my
lino, my forte being the calculating of
accounts, the regulation of freight
rates, and the management of business
so as to secure the fattest dividends to
Perhaps my interest in Earl's love
for Laura might be because I most cor
dially detested Prince Carleton. He
was always "blowing" our road, find
ing fault with the rate of epeed, with
the grade, with the ventilation, with
everything in short, for nothing suited
him. Then upon ono occasion he and
I bad a few words neither very pleas
ant no• very choice, and he had called
mo an old scoundrel, and I returned
the compliment with interest. After
that wo were worse friends than ever.
Ono dark rainy night in November,
just after the nine o'clock train had
been got off, and I was sitting in my
office trying to balance an account that
pould not balance, the door opened
and Earl Rodgers walked in. lie had
on his waterproof suit the hood over
his head, and the collar buttoned close

pale and his eyes gleamed with unnat
"What in the world has happened,

as if you were going to your own fune
"Mr. Woodbury," said ho earnestly,
"do you believe in presentiments ?"
'•No," said I, "I certainly do not;
they are old woman's whims !"
"Perhaps so. I wish I could think
so,' said he sadly, "I have been trying
"What is it, Earl? Anything gone
wrong with Laura ?" for I did not
know but the little jade had been play
ing off with him after the manner of
"You will laugh at me, Mr. Wood
bury, but I mast tell somebody, or I
will go out of my wits," said he half
laughing, "and before heaven I tell you
it is all truth. Thursday afternoon I
took a hand car and went over to Roc
ky River Bridge. Ido not mind con
fessing that I went on purpose to get a
glimpse at her home—perhaps of her
self. I stood at one end of the bridge,
looking acrjss at the house, enraptured
at the sight of a scarlet shawl which I
knew was hors flitting in and out
through the shrubbery of the garden.
"And while I was looking at her I
heard footsteps, and glancing up I saw
myself coming up from the opposite
side of the bridge ! I was dressed in
this suit of waterproof, my face was as
pale as death, and my wide open eyes
wore blank and expressionless!
"Sir, you think I am dazed, but I'm
telling you;only the truth I While I•
stood staring at the. vision it disap
peared, and weak and trembling I
came back to town. By the next day
—yesterday, I had reasoned myself
out of belief in anything of the kind.
It was a hallucination, I said, and to
prove it so, I would go out there again
and see if it would appear for the sec
ond time. I went out again yesterday
and. sir, the same thing was repeated !
HUNTINGDON, PA., TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 1870.
It will come once moro,and then I shall
go to my death 1"
"Nonsense!" said I. "Come Earl, be
honest, and confess that you had been
taking too much whisky."
"1 nevordrink anything as you know
Mr. Woodbury," returned be, "and
this thing was fearfully'real. if I run
the mail tonight I shall be killed, and
heaven knows what will be the fate of
the train ! I suppose it could not be
taken off' to-night."
"Taken off? What in the deuce do
you mean ?" snapped I, "this road runs
trains as advertised ! Cowardly engi
neers to the contrary notwithstanding
Ile looked at me sadly, reproachful
ly—and I could have kicked myself for
the way I had spoken to him.
"It was not on my own account, sir,
said he, "but it is only a few days be
fore Thanksgiving, and the train will
be a full one. If there is an accident
it may be a bad one."
"Accident !" said I contemptuously,
"fiddlesticks. Come in to-morrow and
let us laugh at you."
He bid me good-night gravely and
Presently the clock struck twelve,
and I heard three sharp successive
whistles that told me that the train
was nearly ready. A strange feeling
of apprehension seized me. What if
anything should happen?
• Yielding to an impulse that would
not be controlled, I threw on my over
coat, turned out the gas, locked the of
fice and hurried over to the depot just
in season to catch the tail of the rear
car and swing myself on board.
Earl Rodgers stood at his post, pale
and silent, yet altered and watchful.
By the head light on the locomotive
be could see the track for half a mile
ahead, and - his keen eye scanned every
inch 9f the *way as the train swept ou.
Past Roman station—past the Mill
Cut—past Hill's embankment, and
they plunged into the narrow belt of
woods which skirted Rocky River.
Suddenly. as they swept around the
Earl's cheek whitened and he
drew his breath quick and bard I
What ho saw before the train, warn
ed him that only death and destruction
lay ahead. He could probably save
himself by leaping off, but that would
doom all on board. Not a second did
he hesitate. Tho sharp whistle down
breaks sounded. He reversed steam
and did everything in his power to
stop the train.
When he saw that his efforts were
in vain, that the obstacle which lay
across the track only a few rods in ad
vance could not be avoided, ho sprang
over the wood-box and unlocked from
the carriages; the engine released from
the drag, shot ahead, and the next in-,
slant plunged into the gulf.
There was a crash, a succession of
shrill whistles from the'escaping steam
and then all was still.
Not one of the carriages went down;
the first one halted on the very brink of
the abyss as if to impress more fear
fully upon the minds of the passengers
the terrible danger they had escaped.
Before the train had come to a stop, I
had jumped out and was flyingforward
looking for Earl Rodgers.
They pointed into the river in an
swer, to my inquiries, and seizing a
lantern from the hand of ono of the
brakesmen, I soon climbed down the
embankment and found him. He lay
under a wreck of the locomotive, pale
and bloody, with no breath coming
from his lips.
The two stokers were a little way
off, stone dead.
I am an old man, but I didn't feel
the weight of that poor fellow as I car
ried him up the bank, and on to the
house of Demain, which happened to
be the nearest residence.
Of course old Demain could not re
fuse admittance under the circumstan
ces, and in five minutes Laura was
with me trying to restore the lifeless
man to consciousness.
She was all courage and hope; but
for her, we should have given him up
for dead; and I to this day firmly be
lieve that her presence and ber care
brought him back from death.
Sho never flinched while the surgeon
amputated his leg at the knee, it was
the only way to save him. Doctor
Green said that Laura held the poor
head of her patient to her bosom, and
his bands inhere, through the whole
The accident it was found had been
occasioned by a stick of timber across
the track, and the railroad company
offered a reward of a thousand dollars
for the discovery of the rascally per-
petrator. No matter how we found it
out, but it was ascertained beyond a
doubt that Prince Carleton was the
guilty party. He confessed it when
we bad him snug and safe, and said
that he wanted Earl Rodgers out of
the way, and because ho hated the
whole concern—meaning the railroad
and the corporation, ho had formed
this plan of diabolical revenge.
His father was a millionaire, and
bought up our silence handsomely.
Prince went to California, and I do
not know what became of him.
Old Domain proved himself a trump
after all, and gave in gracefully.
Ho is dead now, and Earl and Lau
ra live at the old piano, as happy a
couple as over you saw. As for Earl's
warning, you may believe what you
like about it. I have no explanation
to offer. '

After - 1 had drifted 'Abe White
House with the flood tidy:fumanity
that had been washing si:eudily up the
street for an hour, I obeyed the orders
of the soldier at the door and the po
liceman within, and banked my um
brella with a colored man, who gave
me a piece of brass with a number on
it, and said that thing would produce
the property at any time of the night.
I doubted it, but I was on unknown
ground now, and must be content to
take a good many chances.
Another person told me to drop in
with the crowd and I would come to
the President presently. I joined, and
we drifted along till we passed a cer
tain point, and then we thinned out to
double and single filo. It was a right
gay scene, and a right stirring and
lively one; for the whole place was
brightly lighted, and all down the
great hall as far as one could see was
a restless and writhing multitude of
people, the women powdered, painted,
jeweled and splendidly upholstered,
and many of the men glided with the
insignia of great naval, military and
ambassadorial rank. . It was bewilder
Our long line kept drifting along,
and by and by we came in sight of the
President and Mrs. Grant. They were
standing up shaking hands and trading
civilities with our procession. I grew
somewhat at, home little by little, and
then begun to feel satisfied and con•
tented. I was getting to be perfectly
alive with interest by the time it came
my turn to talk with the President.—
I took him by the hand and looked
him in the eye and said;
"Well, I reckon I see you at last,
general, I have said as much as a
thousand times, out in Nevada, that if
ever I went home to the States I would
just have the private satisfaction of fin
ing and saying to you by word of
mouth that I thought you considerable
of a soldier anyway. Now you know
out there we—"
I turned round and said to the fel
low behind me:
"Now look here, my good friend,
how the nation do you suppose I can
talk with any satisfaction with you
crowding me this way? I am sur
prised at your manners."
He was a modest looking creature.
He said :
"But you see the whole procession's
stopped, and they're crowding up on
"Some people have got more check.
Just suggest to the parties behind you
to have some respect for the place
they aro in, and not try to shove in on
a private conversation. What the
General and mo are talking about isn't
of the least interest to them."
Then I resumed to tho President :
"Well, well, well. Now this is fine.
This is' what I call something like.—
Gay ? Well, I should say so. And so
this is what you call a Presidential ro

A Headless Horseman—How he todd
at Wcerth: •
At the battle of Wcerth,- it' is paid
that at the third charge of the cuiras
siers, a horse was to be seen going at
full speed with a headless rider. The
mutilated corpse was that of M. de
Futzum'de Lacarre, colonel of tl3ethjrd
regiment of French cuirassiers, who'
had been decapitated by a cannon ball.
Most people on reading this *mild de
dare that it was a mere sensation par
agraph, totally devoid of truth ; , Such'
as occurrence, however, would not, by
any means seem to be an impossibility:
Not long ago we directed our readers'
attention to an interesting artielepali i i
lished by Dr. Brintori, surgeon to the
Philadelphia lfospital,on the instantan
eous rigidity which forms the occasion-
al acconipanithent of sadden tiritio
lent death,such as resUltd from wounds'
of the head and heart. The startling
phenomenon sometimes seen on, the
battle field, of the retention in death
of the last attitude in life, has not es
caped the' observation of military Sur:
goons, although the facts connected'
therewith have not been studied with ,
the attention that they deierve. Those'
who are familiar with the descriptions'
that were given of the Crimean battle
fields, particularly that of Inkerman,
will remember that the various atti
tudes and the expression of the fee- -
tures of the 'dead wore dwelt upon.--
The report.of M. ()berme • contains a'
short account, chiefly based upon the
communications of M. M. Armand and
Perier of the attitudes of the dead' hi
battle during the Crimean and Italian
campaigns. At Magenta a Hungarian
hussar, killed ttt, the same time as. his'
horse, remained almost in the saddle,•
resting on his right side, the point ,cit
his sabre carried forward, as at the
charge. This rigidity generally fol- -
lows sudden and violent deaths, but
not invariably. Dr. Brinton, among
his cases, gives one of a very striking
kind. He says that a man wounded
in the left breast at Belmont, MisSouri,
found a stray mule, which he succeed
ed in mounting. While in the act of
riding the animal he died; but his
corpse retained the upright mounted
position and on its becoming neced-•
sary to appropriate the mule to the
use of a living wounded soldier the
body was found to be BO firmly aid'
rigidly set as to require a certain
amount of positive force to :free the
mule from the clasps of legs. Brin
ton is led to conclude, from his own
observations and those of others, that
this battle-field rigidity is developed
at the moment of death, and that the
cadaveric attitudes are "those of the
last moment and act of life.—London
