IRON IN•THE BLOOD•
IT is well known to' the medicel profession that
IRON is the Vital Principle or i.ife P.lement of the
blood. This is derived chiefly from the food we eat ;
but If the food is not properly digested, or if, from
any cause whatever, the necessary quantity of iron Is
not taken into the circulation, or berotnew reduced, the
whole system suffers. The bad blood will irritate the
heart, will clog op the hags. will stupefy-the brain,
will obstruct the liver, and w ill send its disease-pro
duchy; elements to ail parts of the syetem, nod every
one will suffer in whatever organs may be predisposed
The great value of
IRON AS A MEDICINE
is well known and acknowledged by all medical men.
The difficulty hae been to obtain such a preparation of
it as will enter the circulation and assimilate at once
with the blood. This point, says Dr. Hayes, Massachn

Midnight was past, and the lights
of the vessels lying in the stream
were beginning to be extinguished,
when two men hurried from different
directions towards the shore. The el
der of the two had already reached
the strand, and • was preparing to
make n leap, the design of which was
not to be mistaken ; but at that in
stant the younger seized him by the
arm, exclaiming :
"Sir, I believe you want to drown
"You. have guessed it. What is
that to you ?"
This was the answer spoken in the
most angry tone.
"Nothing, I know. I would simply
request you to wait a couple of min
utes, when, if you like, we will make
the great journey together. Arm in
arm is the best way of dying." -
With these words the younger ex
tended his hand to the elder, whose
hand was not withheld. The former
continued, in a tone of seeming en
"So be it ! Arm in arm ! Truly
did not dream that a human heart
beat with mine in this last hour. 1
will.not seek -to know Who you are—
an honest man or a viilian. Come,
let us begin the journey together 1"
The elder held the young man
back, and fixing the dim, half extin
guished eyes searchingly upon the
countenance of his companion, ex
"Hold I You seem to me too young
to end your life by suicide. A man
of your years has still a brilliant, al
luring fortune in his grasp—"
Brilliant I" answered the young
man, scornfully. '•What have I to
hope for in the world full of wicked
ness, falsehood, treachery and unhap
piness ? Come, quick r i
"You are still young. You must
have had very sorrowful experiences
to make life thus insupportable to
"I despise mankind."
"Without exception ?"
"Well, then, perhaps you have now
found a man whom you will not nec
essarily despise. I have, believe
me, during my whole life; lived an
"Really I That is 10011 T-interes
ting 1 It is a pity I did riot make
your acquaintance earlier V'
"Leave me to diealone,young man.
Live on. Believe me, time heals all
wounds, and there aru men of honor
yet to be found in the world."
"Now, if you take this view, why
are you hurrying so fast to give your
farewell to the world ?"
"Oh 1 1 am, an old, sickly man, una
ble to make a livelihood ; a man who
cannot, will not longer see his only
child, his daughter, blighting her
youth, and laboring day and night
to support him. No, I would be an
unfeeling father, I would be barbar
owl-' if I lived on thus I"
"flow, sir, have you a daughter
who does this for you ?" asked the
young man, surprised.
"And with what endurance, with
what love, does she sacrifice herself
for me. She works for me, she goes
hungry for mei 'and has only the
tenderest words of love—a sweet
smile for me always 1"
"And you want to commit suicide?
Are you mad ?"
"Shall I murder my daughter ?
The life which she is now leading is
her certain death," ans.vered the old
man, in despair.
''Good sir, come go. With me to the
nearest inn that is still open, and let
us drink a bottle of wine together
You will relate to me your history,
and if you like I will let you know
mine. So much, however, will I say
to you beforehand. Chase all thoughts
of self murder out of your head. J
am rich; and if things be as you say,
from henceforth you and your loving
daughter shall lead a pleasant life."
The old man followed the younger
without opposition. A few minutes
later, over full glasses, the elder 66-

"My history is soon told. I was
a merchant's clerk, but always un
lucky. As I had nothing for inheri•
Lance, and the young girl I married
was poor, I was never able to com
mence business on my own account,
and so remained on to old age in a
dependent, subordinate position.—
Finally, I was discharged on account
ofmy years, and then began the.strug
gle for subsistence. My wife died of
trouble, and now my poor child wea
ries to gain my support,l cannot bear
to see her working herself to death
for me ; thefore, it is better I go.—
Now, you know all."
"Friend," exclaimed the young
man, "you are the most fortunate
man I ever encountered in my life.
It is insane to call that misfortune.
Nothing is easier than to help you.—
To.morrow I will make my will, and
you shall be—no resistance—my
heir. The coming night is my last.
Before this, however, I mustsee your
daughter, out of pure curitrsity.—
I would for once see how one looks
who really deserves the name of wo
man." "But young man, what can
it be that so early has made you un

My Who'. (. 4tlied "five years-Eli
ing me more than was good for me.
Since that time I have been deceived
and betrayed by every one, without
exception, will whoml have had any
connection. Some have pretended
friendship for me on account of my
money; others have pretended to
love me on account of my money;
and so it went on. I often mingle,
dressed in theg i. arb of a simple work
man, with this*:massep, and thus one
day beeame acquainted with a charm
ing being—a young girl, to whom
my ,whole heart went outin love. I
disclosed to her. neither my name
nor my position. 1 long ed to be
loved for myself alone, and for a time
it appeared asjf I was going to be
happy at last. The young girl
and I, whom she still regarded as a
simple workman, met every afternoon
in the MarenAplata*bere we walked
up andAosy.gloge,tlier, passing many
happy hours. -One....day, my girl ap
peared with red eyes—t-he had been
weeping—and told me we must part,
confessing that her life belonged to
another! With these words she tore
herself from me and disappeared in
the crowd. Her faithlessness decid
ed my destiny. Vainly did I rush
into pleasures which so-calledsoeiety
has to offer, but found my lost peace
of soul never, never ! I then deter
mined to bring my joyless existence
to a close."
"Unhappy young man r said the
elder, wiping hiaeyes, 'from my whole
heart I pity you. I must acknowl

you ; for I, at least, was by two wo

when Carl found himself on his way
to the suburb where lived the daugh

At his appearance the young girl
sprang towards him; overcome with
joy, bolding out her little

" You did not expect to see me.?"
The younl , girl sank into a seat ;
and covered her pale, beautiful coun

A BUFFALO-TIGER STORY.
A paper published in India tells
this remarkably exciting story about
an adventure there of an enthusiastic
"One very hot day, shouldering
his entomological net, and with his
bottle ofeyanide of potassium in his
pocket for the purpose of killing his
specimens, he had succeeded in tak
ing several species of moths and bee
tles, when, suddenly emerging on an
open space, a gigantic female buffalo
charged . righf down upon him. Quick
as lightning the narrator sprang up
a tree which fortunately happened to
be near, and almost before he had
comfortably settled down upon One
of the branches, a buffalo calf appear
ed upon the scene, and both mother
and offspring sat down at the foot of
the tree, directly under his position.
In order to attract the attention of
his friends who were in the neighbor
hood, or of any native who might
happen to be near, he shouted until
he was hoarse. Ever and anon, by
way of variation „with the vain hope
of frightening away the buffalo, he
awakened the extremest echoes of
the jungle - with his yells, and perpe
trated the most hideous noises ever
produced by the human voice. All
was of no avail; no friendly hand
came to aid him and' the brute still
lay placidly licking and caressing its
calf. Ho was about to assume a
standing attitude in the tree, when
suddenly his left hand, with which
he had seized a branch above his head
was severely stung. or bitten by sonic
insect or animal. Starting with the
acute pain, as the fear of whip or tree
snakes flashed through his mind, he
involuntarily loosed his hold of the
bough, and thus deprived of his sup
port, he lost his balance and fell from
his place of refuge. He dropped on
the buffalo's back, and in another in
stant was carried away at a tremen
dous pace thrOugh the long thick
grass of the jungle. It was a difficult
matter to keepliis seat, when all at
once the buffalo sprang into a large
"tank," and he WINS immersed up to
his neck in water. 'Unable to swim,
he was obliged to cling to the brute,
which for a time swam round and
round the pool at her pleasure. He
only hoped his leg would not be seized
by one of the alligators, of which he
had seen several in the water dining
the day. Then, to his infinite horror,
a stinging sensation in his leg made
him feel sure he had again been bit
ten by another kind of serpent. And
stilt the - buffalo .showed :no eignsof
returning towards the land, when
just as he thought he was preparing
to lie down he dug his heels into her
side and delivered random blows with
his fiats on her head and neck. Then,
striking out for the land, the brute
speedily reached the shore, on gain
ing which, she commenced her mad
gallop. A few minutes brought them
to tke spot from which the animal
had started, where the calf was. still'
standing. The buffalo was prepar
ing to lie down, when seizing the
branches of the tree from which he
had fallen on the brute's neck, he
swung himself up into his old posi
tion. He had not, however, been
very long there when the smarting
in his hand and legs caused him to
remember that he had been bitten by
snakes. The very- idea of this, and
the knowledge that one of those yen•
omous reptiles was in the tree on
which he was perched, caused a dead•
ly faintness, from which it was some
time before be rallied.
"Alternately fainting and reviving
hour after hour passed aWay; night
darkened down upon the jungle and the
buffalo still kept watch and ward at
the foot of the tree. At length, at
an advanced hour of the night, he
suddenly became conscious that a
struggle was going on between the
buffalo and some large wild' animal,
which he judged to be a tiger. "The
growling of the latter," he continua,
'the groans of the buffalo, the noise
of their struggleS, and the incessant
bleating of the calf,' combined in pro
ducing a series of sounds, which, in
the darkness of sight appeared
worthy of the inhabitants of Pande
monium. For full five minutes,
which appeared hours to me, the
dreadful - struggle continued, until at
length the groans of the buffalo sub
sided into a series of convulsivegasps
and snorts, find the sounds of strug
gling on the ground almost ceased.—
I could, however, bear the tiger
growling, snarling,_ and spitting like
an immense cat. Of course descent
was now quite out of the question. I
therefore determined to remain where
I was until daylight, if I did not die
from the effects of the snake bites be
fore morning appeared. So strong
was the interest with which I listen
ed and strained my eyes for the pur
pose of learning what was going- on
below, that I even ceased to think of
this contingency, and forgot the
death-like 'swoons I had previously
experienced. After some time spent
in listening to the noise made by the
animal while enjoying his feast of buf
falo flesh, the sounds ceased suddenly.
I felt sure, however, that the beast
had not departed, for I had kept my
eyes fixed on the dark outlines under
the shadow of the tree, and the mass
remained of the same appearance. I
fancied I could trace the form.Of a ti
ger lying alongside the dead buffalo,
and this was the shape the dark ob.
jests had assumed and retained since
the termination of the conflict"
"At length, however, succor was at
hand. Seeing a light in the distance,
he,shouted as loudly as he conldi,and
this attracted the notioe of a party
who had'set•out in search of , him.--
On coming up to the spot, both tiger
WHOLE NO. 805
and buffalO were found to be dead.—
On telling his friends he had been
bitten by snakes they first examined
his band, and pronounced the wound
he received whilst in the tree to have
been caused by the sting of a hornet.
On turning down his stockings they
discovered Several leeches gorged
with blood, for numbers of these vo
rations animals had bitten him dur
ing his ride through the water on the
buffalo's back. The faintings be had
experienced were attributed to loss
of blood - from the leech bites. They
then turned their attention to the
dead tiger. Not a wound was dis
covered about the carcass, but on
slightly moving the body of the buf
falo, they discovered the bottle of
cyanide of potassium, which bad been
intended for entomological purposes,
broken, and partially introduced into
the wound in the neck from which
the tiger had sucked the blood of his
victim. While imbibing the life blood
of the buffalo the tiger bad also re
ceived one of the most deadly poisons
known, which in the course of a very
short time had produced its usual fa
tal result. The position of the two
animals and of the deadly bottle left
no room for doubting that such had
been the ease. On ascending the tree
in such hot haste the poison bottle
and other little matters were drop
ped, and during the struggle between
the animals the former was broken,
and perhaps even cut its way into the
jugular of the buffalo ; thus probably
assisting in the death of the latter, as
well as proving, so fatally destructive
to the tiger. On the appearance of
dawn they discovered a small wasps'
nest hanging in the tree, later in the
day they had the satisfaction of su
perintending the skinning of the ti
ow and distributing the meat to the
villagers, some of whom regard it as
particularly strengthening food.—
The absence of bullet holes rendered
the skin a valuable one,"
A PARIS INCIDENT.
A young boy of sixteen years of
age was brought before the police
court, Paris, charged with stealing
and begging in- the pUblic streets.—
He was a bright, fine looking boy but
very poorly clad, and when brought
before the judge, he fell upon his
knees and begged him not to put him
in prison ; that his mother was sick .
and starving, and that alone had driv
en him to steal ; that he could not
find work ; and if ho was imprisoned,
the disgrace would kill his mother.—
The judge seethed somewhat moved
at the boy's story; "but lie neverthe
less, after hearing the evidence, con
demned him to six weeks imprison
As the boy was being led away, a
poor WOlllO.ll, pale, covered with rags,
and her hair in disorder, forced her
way through the crowd, and totter
ing up to the boy, passed one arm
around him and then turning to the
judge, pushed back her long black
hair, and exclaimed, "Do you recog
nize me ? Thirteen years have pass
ed since you deserted me, leaving me
alone with My child and my shame ;
but I have not forgotten you, and
this boy whom . you have - just con
demned is your 'son P?
You may imagine, the effect this
announcement produced on the by
standers. The judge, in a loud voice
ordered the woman to be carried
from the court, and then left it him
self; but joined the poor creature in
the street, and carried her and her
boy off in a carriage.
A. EEMARKBL2 singular
hoax was played upon the Missouri
Legislature recently. .3.1. r. Wolfe, .of
Platte county, a member of the House
having gone home ' a despatch was re
ceived by oner of his fellow members
announcing his death. The despatch
bore the name of a prominent gentle
man, and no doubt was entertained
of its genuineness. Accordingly the
announcement was formerly made
known both in the House and senate.
The customary eulogies were pro
nounced and resolutions adopted, and
both branches of the Legislature ad
journed, the House having previous
ly ordered the hall in which it sits to
be draped in mourning. This occur
red on Thursday, the alst. Judge
what the surprise of the members
must have been when, on Saturday
afternoon-4w° days later--Mr.
Wolfe, in his own proper person, en
tered the chamber and took his seat !
Thc.funeral hangings of the room
were soon removed, and the members
were quite as prompt in tearing off
the crape which they bad resolved-to
wear for the period of thirty days.—
Of course Mr. Wolfe was much grati
fied to see and read of the estimation
in which he was held, but he was
still better pleased with the conscious
ness of„ his continued existence.—
Nothing has • transpired with refer
ence to the author of the hoax.

A Conten led Farmer.
Once upon a time, Frederick, King:
of Prussia, surnamed "Old Fritt s ",
took a ride, and espied an old farmer .
plowing his acre by the wayside, cheer
fully singing his melody.
'You must be well off, old men i ''
said the King. "Does this acre be ,
long to you on which you so indus ,
triously labor 7"
"No, sir," replied the farmer s who
knew not it was the King. "I am,
not so rich as that, I plow for wages."
"How much do you get a day r
asked the King.
"Eight groschen" (about .twonty
cents), said the farmer.
"This is not much," replied the
King. "Can you get along with'
"Get along and have something

The farmer smiled and Raid
"Well, if I must tell you—two gro

two I pay my old debts; two I lend
away, and two I give away for the
"This is a mystery which I cannot
solve, said the King.
"Then I will solve it for you," . said
the farmer. "I have two old parents
at home who kept me when I was
weak and needed help, and now that
they are weak and need help I keep'
them. This is my debt toward which -
I pay two groschen a day. The
third pair of groschen which I lend
away I spend for my children, that
they may receive a Christian instruc
tion. This will come bandy to me
and my wife when we get old. With
the last two groschen I maintain two
sisters whom I could not be compell
ed to keep. This is what I give for
the Lord's sake."
The King, apparently well pleased
with the answer, said :
"Bravely spoken, old man, Now I
will also give you something to guess.
Have you ever seen me before T"
"Never," said the farmer.
"In less than five minutes you shall
see me filty times, and carry in your
pocket fifty of my likenesses."
"This is a riddle which I cannot un
ravel," said the farmer.
"Then I will solve it for you," said
the King. Thrusting his hand into
his pocket and counting him fifty
bran-new gold pieces into his hand,
stamped with his royal likeness, he
said to the astonished farmer who
knew not what was coming :
"The coin is genuine, for it also
comes from our Lord God, and I am

It is said of the three most influen- -
tial members of the Convention that
formed the Constitution of the Uni
ted States, that in all the debates of
that body no one of them made a
speech of more than twenty minutes.
We have good authority for 'stating:
that Alexander Hamilton, though
reckoned among the most diffuse or
ators of the day, did not occupy more
than two hours and a half in his ar
gument on.the trial of a cause, and
his rival Aaron Burr, not more than
an - hour and a quarter. A judge who
was intimately acquainted with Burr
and his practice, confirmed this state
ment, adding that within his knowl
edge this advocate repeatedly and
shecessfully disposed of cases involv.
ing a large amount of property in half
an hour. .
Indeed, said be, "on one occasion'
he talked to the jury seven minutes
in such a manner that it took me on
the bench half an hour to straighten
them out." I once asked him : "Col.
Burr, why cannot the lawyers always
save time and spare the pa
tience of the Court and jury
by dwelling only on the most impor
tant points in the case ? To which
Burr replied :
"Sir, you demand the greatest fac
ulty of the human mind, selection."
He is well known to have been one
of the most effective advocates in his
time, and in Ws matter, if nothing
else he deserves to be'studied and im

Buxton, "what was the secret of his
preeminent success as an advocate.—
He said that be took care to press
home the one principle point of the
case; without much regard to others.
He also said that he knew the secret
of being snort.
"•I find," said be, "that when I ex
ceed half an hour, I am always doing
mischief to my client. If I drive into
the bends of the jury unimportant
matter," drive out matter the more
important I had previously lodged
We commend this method and his
reason for it, not only to ministers,
but quite as urgently to lawyers and
members of Congress.
Wuo is OLD ?—A wise man will
never rust out. As long as be can
move and breathe ' he will do some
thing for himself, his neighbor, or for
posterity. Almost to the last hour
of his life Washington was at work.
So were Franklin and Young, and
Howard and Newton. The vigor of
theii lives never decayed. NO rust
ever marred their spirits. It is a fool
ish idea to suppose that we must lie
down and die because we are. old
Who is old ? Not them an of energy;
