EX-MINISTER TO AUSTRIA.
Hon. John M. Francis One of the Thousands Whom Paine's Celery
Compound Has Benefited.
Among the men of international rep
utation in America ne one deserves
better of his country than Hon. John
M Francis, ex-minister to Austria.
The highest political honors have
come to him unsought. Pres. Grant
appointed ;ntm minister to Greece.
Pres. Garfield had chosen him for the
mission to Belgium. Pres. Arthur ap
pointed him minister to Portugal, and
in 18S4 he was promoted to be envoy
extraordiaary and minister plenipoteu
tiary to Austria-Hungary, with a resi
dence at Vienna.
At the last New York state election
Mr. Fransis was choose one of the 13
deleg4tesat-large to the constitutional
convention, which is to set in Albany
next summer, and bis majority was
the largest on the state ticket.
Mr. Francis is conspicuous among
the really great editors of today as the
founder, editor and proprietor of the
Troy Times, which he baa made a live,
enterprising, clean and popular paper,
and one of the ablest and most ioliu-n-tial
exponents of republican Um in the
The life and labors of Mr. Francis
present one of the most attractive and
insiruetive objects which one can con
template. Industry, conscientiousness,
absolute fidelity to duty, and prefer
ence for a high plane of moral conduct
have been conspicuous traits of bis
charaoter. They were the adequate
guarantee of the eminent success that
has crowned bis efforts, and of the tri
bute of esteem that is paid to him.
Mr. Francis, though he has reached
the psalmiBt'a allotted three score and
ten, is in excellent health, and mentally
vigorous and alert. The first of this
year be went to California with hit
daughter to spsn a few months.
Before going he requested William
B. Wilson, who, under Air. Francis
and his ton, Hon. Q S. Fjuucis, is the
wide-awake bead of the business de
partment of the Tiirss, to say for him
to the proprietors of fame's celery
compound "I have used the medicine
moderately and with favorable re
sults." The expression if characteristic of
the dignified and conservative gentle
men who, as last fall's vote ehows.is in
the right sense the most popular citi
zen of the empire state
Mr. Wiimn himself, writing an un
solicited letter to Welles Richardson
company, says of this wonderful renie
dy that makes people well -
''For some time post 1 have been
using Paine's celery compound as a
nervine and tonic, and have found its
effects very beneficial. I have heard
and known of its good work among my
friends, several saying that tbey"could
not kaep house without it," and never
allow their supply to become exhaust
ed. I shall always stand ready to say
. - 1 T a . . .

pound, for I honestly believe that it
will do all that is claimed for it."
Among the thousands of testimonlali
that come to the proprietor! of Paine s
celery compound every year, are let
ters from grateful mtn and women in
every ttation of life. Lietle did Dart
mouths great profetsor realize the
greatness of his benefit to mankind

It is the true specific for diseases
arising from a debiliatud nervous ers
tern and impu.'e blood. It is a positive
cure foa dyspepsia, biliousness, liver
complaint, neurallgia, rheumatism, all
nervous diseases and kidney troubles.
For the latter Paine's celery lias suc-
ieti again ana again where every
thing else has failed.
The medical journals of this country
and Europe have given more space to
the many remarknble cases where the
use of Paine's celery compouud his
