The blood is the foundation of' ,
life, it circulates through every part ,
of the -body, and unless it: is pure
and rich, good health is impossible.
If disease has entered the system
the only sure and quick way to drive
it 'out is to purify "arid enrich the
- blood. . .
These simple' facts are well
known, and the highest medical
- authorities agree_ that nothing but
iron will restore the blood to
c its,
natural condition ; and also that

Once Upon ti Time, a certain place called
Coppersmith Court. It was no thoriugh=
fare, being only a sort of bay out of a great .
fashionable river of a street. -It held six_
. .
I" — ..uses, two on each side and two across the
I end, and there 'was a, placard bearing the
words, "No peddlers permitted to enter."
Number one contained old Mr. Flack and
I .. his wife, but they : were' seventy each, and
rheumatic. Number two- sheltered the i
formed little librarian of a certain religious
I library iu the city, and his consuraptive
Iyoung sister.. Number three I .7.held—how,
they' alone 'knew—a ' Methodist minister's
I widow and- font daughters. - Niimber four
llwas occupied by an old Lady'whO had a son
'I at sea, an officer on a vessel ,iii the navy.
I Ile was always being expected home, and
branches of coral, Chinese curiosities and
I boxes of foreign jellies and conserves at.
Itested to the fact.that he did . return occa,.
I tonally; big the ehances were that he would
Ibe hemid-ocean at any given date, Num
ber five was occupied bY Miss Cornelia Cop
. ..
tpersmith, a single lady_ of eight- and.forti,
I and a very old poodle. And
,number Fix,
Ibeing haunted, Was left to its gliOst. Pro
f bably want of patronage rather `,than the
I placard banished the peddlers. .
The reason why the Coppersmith Court
people set their faces so sternly against ped-
I (Tiers was that they were not genteel. And
the people of Coppersmith Cotirt were 'gen-
Iteel or nothing. Its occupants all lived. on
liinited incomes, and not one of the ladies;
had ever earned a penny iu all her. life.'
Mr. Flack had a peusien under government..
The' librarian was connected with a wonder.
fully genteel society. 'A naval officer's mo
ther is a person of position.. l So is a pastor's
widow. And :- Miss Cornelia Coppersmith
was the poor relation of 'the magnificent
'Coppersmith who owned' the court, was said
to be worth six million.-and whO had pre.
.sented the small dwelling iu `which Miss
-Cornelia lived to his cousin, her mother, a
lady always alluded to by Miss COraelia as
" my-late ma." *A ghost is seldom Vulgar,
though sometimes alarming, 'and the - ghost
at number six was that' of a bankrupt banker
who had shot himself. •
Ocintsiorially a carriage,. with several men
in livery perched 'upon it, paused at the en.
trance to the court, andri fat lady, in fine
clothes ; and a thin 'gentleman, with a great
diamond ou his bosom, entered Miss Cornelia
Coppersmith's door. It was then whispered
thrriugh the court that that laly's "family
tied called upon'her.
Thus all might have continued for t many
year; but that Mrs. Rooney came• into her
grandfather's property, i , after having—quite
given up the idea' f his decease, for he lived
to be aluudred audl fiftcen years; of
,age ;
and feeling herself entitled to be a lauded
proprietor, euiPkiyed'aulagent to bny c ,/ter a
bit of a house. •
The agent having looked about him, pro
posed Number Six, Coppersmith Court.
Mr. Coppersmith, weary of a- tenant who
paid no rent—we Allude to the banker's
ghcistagreed to the'.Price. offered. and. one
ruoruin the.. botisekeepers . of the coiirt
peeped through their green blinds upon the
arrival of Mrs. Ilocinex's household gods ;
and two boarders camY with Mrs.- Pbooney. ,
One was a young man who habitually wore
a red shirt. The other was a foreigner in
shabby black. He looked genteel, but alai!
appearances are deceitful. On the morning
after his arrival he was seen to leave the
court bearing a small tray, or whickwere
ranged in rows pipes of all sorts,
very costly ones. There were humble'itnita
tion'meerschaums, china pipes, with painted
flowers upon them, briarwood, violet wood,.
and the humble clay dudeen.
Peddleis were not admitted to the court,
but one had come there to reside. '
" That I am alive to-day," said the pas
tor's widow, "is a proof that one can .live
through anyihing."
As for ausr- Coppersmith, she shut her.
self up in her flowery chintz bower, and
seemed inclined to 'remain there forever.
A week passed. One night Miss Copper
smith was awakened by awful groans. She
.started up in bed and listened. The groan
ing was idler window ; she also hea ' nl raps.
She Went to the window. Within a foot
of'it she saw a face—her next door neigh.

" What - do you want r she asked, sharply.,
" Pardon, niadan4," replied, a weak voice,
with a strong French accent—" pardon, but
I have some cOlics." • -
"Cones ?" repeatedliiss Coppersmith.
"Vera- bad," responded the neighbor.
"I expire of pain, aid Madame Rooney

in ze house is no one. Perhaps you vill

"Yes, yes," hiss Coppersznith, to
whom returned a memory of genteel lessons
French, taken in her earlier days.
"We, llilonshure; jer, comprany—jer—"
but the•elegatit memory was but a faint one,
and she added : -" I don't know abotit
brandy—perhaps I have a little. I will see."
",Nrculai6 is an Angel I" responded the
Yam Coppersmith brought the • brandy—
about half a gill in a cologne bottle—and
presented it on a small fire-shovel
The neighbor, thanking her in a profusion
of complimentary French, retired, but soon
was heard- to groan-again more 'dismally
than, before.
" Are you worse r called the lady through
the shuttdo: _ • .
"I am vets bad," piped the sufferer, in
anguished falsetto. -
" Perhaps a mustard plaster might
tieve," suggested Miss Coppersmith.
"Per'aps," moaned the Frenchman.
Kits Coppersmith, who was nay a ten
der-hearted soul, instantly rushed to her tiny
kitchen, and soon approached the window
again with the plaster between two soup
dishes. Placing them on the shovel she
waved it before her neighbor's window.
" The plaster," she mid.
The plaster was taken with flut thanks,
