surrender in order to save their lives."
" Wait till I have charged them." "Im

must go on." " But; ni3i gddd fellow,"
said May entreatingly, " for Gdd's sake,
just rein up for five minutes, and give
us a chance at them," " Would do
anything to obligo you, doloncl, but I
have the old man's orders and there is
no help for it," and he gave rein to his
horse, whilst the Colonel returned to the
head of his squadron, in the worst of all
possible humors against those things
called flags of truce, The Dragoons,
we understand, made several charges
during the action, though the Whole
number present was only four troops."

come with it. The correctness of the
following is worth testing by experi
Last summer, by way of experiment,
when strawberries were plentiful, I at
tached threads to their stalks, and hung
up a few which were over-ripe to dry.
I placed them inside ti WindOW facing
the south, where they remained from
June last to the present time, (March
28.) They have just been tasted and
the result is most satisfactory. The
sweet refreshing acid which is peculiar
to the strawberry in fall perfection ; the
flavor of the fruit / without any watery
taste, is delicious; it dissolves in the
mouth as slowly as a lozengdi and it is
infinitely superior to the raisin, which
so soon brings do a feeling of satiety.—
The strawberry thus dried is a stoma
chie. The experiment may be tried
when the fruit is so ripe As to be scarce
ly worth gathering; without any further
expense or trouble than being hung up.

scripture, " in the blood is the life."—
If it ever becomes impure it may be
traced directly to the stoper of the
" insensible perspiration . " thus we
see all that is necessary when the blood
is stagnant or infected, is to open the
pores and it relieves itself from all im
purity instantly. Its own heat and vi
tality are sufficient, without one particle
of medicine, except to open the pores
upon the surface. Thus we see the folly
of taking so much internal remedies.—
All practitioners, however, direct their
efforts to restore the insensible perspira
tion. The Thompsonian, for instance,
steams; the Hydropathist shrouds in
wet blankets ; the Homoeopathist deals
out infintissimals; the Ailopathist bleeds
and doses us with mercury, and the
blustering Quack gorges us with pills.
I have had physicians, learned in the
profession, I have had ministers of the
Gospel, Judges of the Bench, Aldermen
gentlemen of the highest
erudition, and multitudes of the poor,
use it in every variety of way, and there
has been but one voice—one united,
universal voice--saying, "M'Allister
your Ointment is good.'
CONSUMPTION .—lt can hardly be cred
ited that a salve can have any effect
upon the lungs, seated as they are with
in the system. But if placed upon the
chest, it penetrates directly to the lungs,
separates the poisonous particles that
arc consuming them, and expels them
from the system. I need not say that
it is curing persons of Consumption con
tinually, although we arc told that it is
foolishness. I care not what is said, so
long as I can cure several thousand per

inwardly, they would be slow to resort
to them. Especially mercurial lo2eu

one can tell, invariably, when worms
arc present. Now let me say to parents,
that this salve will always tell if a child
has worms. It will drive every vestige
of them away. (Read the directions
around the box,) There is probably no
medicine on the face of the earth at
once so sure and so safe in the expul
sion of worms.
OLD SORES.—That some sores are an
outlet to the impurities of the system,
is because they cannot pass off through
the natural channels of the Insensible
Perspiration. If such sores are healed
up, the impurities must have some other
outlet, or it will endanger life. This
salve will always provide tor such emer

FEvtns.---In all cases of fever, the
difficulty lies in the pores being locked
up so that the heat and perspiration can
not pass off. If the least moisture could
be started, the crisis has passed and the
danger is over. The all-healing oint
ment will in all cases of fevers almost
instantly unlock the skin and brings
forth the perspiration.
