    Ashes and Lime for Plum Trees.
Ftiend Reed :—II have in my garden
a plum tree, which for three or four
years past, has borne very full ; but
not until this year has one of the plums
been sound.
They all were bored, or rotted, and
fell from the tree before they were ripe.
Two or three other plum trees, of a dlr.
erent kind, which have borne less, shared
the same fate. Last year, a young tree,
which stood near an ash leech, and
which had never borne before, produced
a solitary plum, and that was sound.—
This suggested the idea that its preser
vation sVas owing to the ashes which
had been scattered around the roots of
the tree. Following out this hint thus
given, I last spring spread ashes and
lime with manure and salt, around all
my trees. The result has been, that
they have all borne this year more than
usual, and most of the fruit has been
sound. The result I ascribe, in part, to
the ashes and lime. The same, I find,
is recommended by 'An Old Digger.'—
And the conclusion is obvious, that al
kali enough will destroy the young in-.
sects as they lie burrowed in the ground
or attempt to emerge from it in the
spring. If in this way sound plums
can he raised, it will be found a very
easy way. Let some of your readers
try the experiment and note the result.

The Blues.
The editor of the Bangor Mercury,
who writes with a great deal of common
sense on all subjects, gives the following
proscription fora fit of the blues, wheth
er indigo or otherwise :
" They are oftentimes the creatures of
habit, and live only by toleration. Bad
digestion, a cloudy day, a fit of senti
mentality, begets them, and then, like
spirits of ill omen, they flit around us,
an invisible web, to check our progress.
But a magic word dispels them ns the
crowing of the cock does the spectres
of the night. An old gentleman once
told MC that he had made a discovery,
which had been for many years of infi- -
nite value to him, and that was that Blue
Devils never ride on horseback. So•ynu
will find, my friends, they never go on
a brisk walk—they never visit gymna
sium—they play ❑o w , cket or foot ball--
they never read Charles Lamb. or Theo
dore Hook or Tom Hood. They may
saunter along with you beneath the sol
emn elms, or through the quiet walks of
the cemetery—they will bend with you
over the pages of Byron, or Bulwer—
they may inspire your solitary musings
anywhere. But act ion—resolve—soc:. ,
ety—eage•—pursuit—healthy, vigorous
throught—all these are enemies, and
from these they will always fly."

Bristol, Burks ootinty, Prs.
Sept. 21, 1849.
Da. J.B. SCIINtCIC, —DearSir,—l am induced
from a sense of justice towards you, as well as
duty to the public, to Make known one of the
most hopeless end extraordinary cures, in my
own person, that you have ever had the pleasure
to record. Indeed, I regret my inability to por
tray, in truthful colons, my constrinin'g disease,
and the remarkable chance which Schneck's
Pulmonary Syrup effected In so short a time.
I was taken some time previous to December
1 1898, with a heavy cold, producing incessant
coughing, accompenied with acute pain in the
right side, pains in the back, under the right
shoulder, having heavy night sweats, high fevers
!Lc., which made me so nervous and restless as
to ptoduc.r utter prostration. AII these afil:ctions
increased with such violence, that on the 4th of
January last I eent for my family physician. He
attended me faithfully, and prescribed every thing
I that medical skill could suggest, but without of
' feet. I fouhd myself gradually growing armee,
and my hopes of recovery lessening as my dis
ease increased. My cough became distressing ;
my pains severe; and, extremely debilitated, I
lost all ambition in life, and gave up to a melan
choly depression. My physician examined me,
and informed me I bail an alums on the upper
prat of my liver and loWer port done of my lungs.
Notwithstanding all this skill, I grew worse, but
with that tenacity with which we all cling to life,
I concluded to have nothing undone, and called
in a consulting physician, who fully concurred
with my own, and pronounced my case an ex
tremely critical one. He thought I was in im
minent danger--saying my disease "was one ilia
to seldom if ever cured." All this time I was en
during sufferings that made life burdensome ; ex
perlencing great pain in coughing ; expectora
ting from a pint to a quart of rianceous matter
every 24 hours, and gradually sinking under the
weakning progress of my disease. At this stage
of my Elites!, my friends in Bristol suggested
the use of Schneck's Pulmonic Syrup. but know
, ing the many expedients resorted to for the pur
pose of draining money from the afflicted, I hes
! iteted. My friends, however, insisting, I was
prevailed upon to try its virtues. I commenced
taking the Syrup about the first of March, and
used several bottles before I had any confidence
in it. I then began to experience a charge for
the better, and continued it till I had consumed
I ten bottles, when I Nion • so far relieved as to be
able to visit Dr. Schneck in Philadelphia. He
examined me, and pronounced my right lung af
fected, but in a healing con lition. He recom
mended the further use of the Syrup, which I
continued till I consumed 15 bottles, and found
myself once more restored to he a l t h. I w ill
ther add, that the conen4ting physician, seeing he
action of the medicine, fully approved its use,

rev give the reader some Wei; of the severity
of my case, and the rapid cure affected by the
Syrup, I will stale that my usual weight in
health was 177 pounds, which was finally re
duced by my sufierings to but 121 pounds. Yet,
on the first of this month, (September,) I weigh
ed 174 pounds, thus gaining in a few months 53
pounds, and within three pounds of my heaviest
weight. It is not in my power to convey, in the
short space of this certificate, the convincing
proofs of my remarkable cure, or the particulars
of the agonizing afflictions through which I have
passed ; but to those who will take the trouble to
ca ll on me, et Bristol, opposite Pratt'. hotel, I
shall take pleasure in detailing every particular.
In conclusion, I deem it my duty to urge upon
every person who may have the premonitory
symptoms of this fatal disease, not to delay one
hour, but to call upon Dr Schneck immediately.
His skill in the treatment of this complaint, and
prompt detection of diseased parts of the lungs
by means of his Stethescope, added to my own
miractf ous cure, fully satisfies me, that had I ear
lier submitted myself to his care, I should have
escaped much suffering ; but restrained by doubts
and suspicion, which make us all naturally skep
tical in regard to the virtues of a medicine when
first introduced. I resisted the importunities of
my friends till almost too late ; and yielded only
as a last resort, resolved to 'r kill or cure." To
those afflicted as I have been, again let me say,
hesitate no longer, my own case is presented Id
yoc as convincing evidence, that when all else
finis your last hope it in Dr, Schneck's Pulmonic
Syrup. I have also for the satisfaction of those
who may be strangers to me, appended to this cer
tiacate the names of gentlemen well known in
the walks of public and private life, and whose
standing in society admits of no cavil or doubt in
regard to their testimony.
We the undersigned, residents of Bristol and
vicinity, are well acquainted with Mr. Johnson,
and know hint to have been afflicted Oa he states
strove, We also know that he used Schneck's
Pulmonic Syrup, amt have every reason to be
lieve, that to title medicine he owes his preserva
tion from a premature grave. The known in
tegrity and posi'ion in society of Mr. Johnson
however is a sufficient guarantee to the public of
the troth of this statement.
