THE WAGES OF WAR.
It was a few days after the news of
3uena Vista—the very day the mail
orought the official list of the killed and
rounded—we were sitting in the office
ending over the names with a sad curi
osity, seeking out those wioh whom we
vere of old familiar. McKee we remem
oered well—a dashing, daring artillery
officer ; he was in the third when we
mew him. But he married, left the ser
vice, engaged in business, and at the
Dpening of the war resumed the epaulets
as Colonel of a Kentucky Volunteer Reg
iment. Brave fellow ! none braver fell
on that bloody field.
c were sorrowfully enough engaged
by these thoughts, when a young woman
entered the office. When we say young,
we mean under thirty. She had a small
girl by the hand—a beautiful little crea
ture, about three years old. Both mother
and child, (for such no one could doubt
to be their relationship who observed
their features,) were dressed with ex
treme neatness, though all the little ele
gancies of decoration were bestowed
upon the child.
We just looked over the top of the
paper to note these partiaulars, when,
having been directed to us by the clerk,
she came forward to our desk.
We handed her a chair, and, while
we endeavored as well as we could to
soothe her very apparent agitation, we
were somewhat at a loss to account for
After a few minutes conversation, we
discovered the reason in the fact that
she was a relative of a soldier in Capt.l
----'s company of artillery. This
corps had been engaged, and, we remem
bered, had suffered very severely. She
had been informed that the list of the
killed and wounded had arrived, and she
had called to hear sonic intelligence of
She wished us to read over the names
We again took up the paper and pro.
ceeded to comply with her request. We
shall never forget the expression of that
woman's features as we read. Her
agony was terrible. She was not un
handsome; but her face became ghastly
pale, and her eyes looked unutterable
despair as she fixed them upon the child
who was playing with a newspaper and
laughing joyously in its heedless inno
cence. Her lips were colorless, the per
spiration started on her forehead, and,
as she lifted her hand to wipe the large
drops away, we could see it trembling
us though palsied.
The presentiment of evil had already
almost broken her heart, and we knew
that the relative must be a very near one.
She had avoided giving us her name,
and, as soon as we found the list, appal
ling long, which comprised the casual
ties of the designated corps, we began
to read. We did not know when we
would react► the fatal name, if at all,
and at each individual we looked inqui
ringly into the woman's face. She said
nothing, however, for some time, and
we began to hope that the name was not
down, when we read—
Jelin , sergeant, KILLED."
Such a scream ! It was the wail of a
broken heart ! That cry was ringing in
our ears for a month. We iamediately
ran towards her, but she arose from her
chair, motioned us her thanks, and with
out a word left the office. We had re:al
to her the announcement of her hushand's
death. We did not do much service in
the office that day.
The next morning, happening down
on the wharf we saw the woman and
her little girl going on board the Cincin
nati packet. She recognized us, and
we spoke to her. She was crushed com
pletely. She had grown twenty years
older in as many hours. She informed
us that she had resided with her has
band in New York ; that she was origi
nally from the West, and on his corps
being ordered to Mexico, she determined
to repair to her friends, and await the
conclusion of the war. She had heard
of the battle, and knew that Captain
's battery was engaged, and on
her arrival in Pittsburg had been direct.

one can tell, invariably, when worms'
are present. Now let it 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.

them by cold or other causes; hence Chronic, Cu•
tarrh, Spitting of Blood, Bronchitis, Asthma, re
sulting in Consumption, Gastritis, diseased Liver

incontestible evidence. it is proved that Thompt on's
Compound Syrup of Tar and Wood Naphtha is a
specific in these complaints—allaying irritation,
promoting healthy secretions, and removing, the
existing cause of disease. Thousands have used
it, and can bear testimony to its efficacy.

Pah n t Medicines.
OLD SoliES.—That some sores arc 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 for such emer
RHEUMATISM —Almost every case Cu
red with this ointment.
FErsas.—ln 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.
We have cured cases of Scald Head that
defied every thing known, as well as the
ability of fifteen or twenty doctors.—
One man told us he had spent $5OO on
his children without any benefit, when a
few boxes of the ointment cured their.
CORNS. — Occasional use of the oint
ment will always keep corns front grow

with them it' they will use it.
As a family medicine, no man can
measure its value.
