Ye who know your sins forgiven,
And are happy in the Lord,
Have you read that gracious promise,
Which is left upon record?
I will sprinkle you with water,
I will cleanse you from all sin,
Sanctily and make you holy,
I will dwell and reign within.•
Tho' you have much pence and comfort,
Greater things you yet may find;
Freedom from unholy tempers,
Freedom from the carnal mind.
fio procure your perfect freedom,
Jest* mined, groan'd and dial;
On the cross, the healing fountain,
Gushed from his waundad side.
If you've not obtained this treasury,
kearch and you. shall surely find;
All the christian's marks and graces,
Planted, growing in the mind ;
Perfect thith and perfect patience,
Perfect loveliness, and then
Perfect hope and perfCet meekness,
Perfect love for God and man.
But lie sure to gain the witness
Which abides both day and night;
This your God has plainly promised;
This is like a stream of
While you keep the blessed witness,
All is clear and calm within;
God himself assures you by it,
That your heart is cleansed from sin.
Witnesses might be produced,
Of this womPmus work of love ;
Patd and James, and John and Peter,
Long before they went above.
linndreds, thousands, tens of thousands,
Have, and do, and will appear;
Let me ask the solemn question,
Has the Lord a witness here?
Be no holy, and as happy,
And as useful here below,
As it is your Father's pleasure—
Jesus, only Jesus know.
Spread, 0 spread the holy fire!
Tell, 0 tell what Coil has thine,
Till the nations have conformed
To the imago of his Son.
Wake up, brothers ! wake up, sisters !
Seek, 0 seek this holy state;
None but holy ones can enter
Thro' the pure celestial gitte.
Can you bear the thought of losing
All the joys that tu•e above?
No my brothers, iso my sister.,
God will perfect you in love.:
Death shall not destroy toy comfort,
Christ shall guide use thro' the gloom,
Down he'll send a heavenly convoy
To convey my spirit home.
Jordan's stream's shall ne'er o'erflow me,
While my Saviour's by my side;
Canaan, Canaan lies before me,
Rise and cross the swelling flood.
Sec the happy spirits waiting,
On the banks beyond the stream,
Sweet responses still repeating,
Jesus, Jesus, is their theme.
Bark, they whisper ! hark, they call me !
Sister spirit come away !
Lu I come, earth can't contain me,
lluil yo realms of endless day !
Never get Angry.
It does no good. Some sins have a seeming
compensation or apology, apresent gratification of
some sort; but anger has none. A manfrels no
better for it. It is really a torment, and when the
storm of pnssioa has cleared away, it leaves one
to see that ho has been a fool; and he has made
a fool of himself in the oyes of others too. An
angry man adds nothing to the welfare of society.
Ile may do some good, but more hurt. heated
passion makes him. a firebrand and it is a wonder
if he does not kiudlo flames of discord on every
hand. Without much sensibility, and often void
of reason, he speaketh liko the piercing of a sword,
and his tongue is an arrow shot out. lie is a had
clement in any community, and Isis removal would
furnish occasion for a day of thanksgiving. Since
then anger is useless, needless, disgraceful, with
out the least apology, and found only "in the bo
som of fools," why should it be indulged in at all T.
The Doom of our World.
The North British Review says :—"What this
doom is to be we dare not conjecture, but we see
in the heavens themselves some traces of the des
tructive elements and indications of their powers
—the descent of meteoric stones upon our globe,.
the wheeling comets wielding their loose material
at the solar surface—the volcanic eruption of our
own astelite—the appearance of others—aro all
foreshadows of that impending convulsion to which
the system of the world is doomed. Thus placed
upon a planet which is to be band, and wider
heavens which aro to melt away—thus treading as
it were, on the cemetries, and dwelling on mauso
leums of former worlds, let us learn the lesson of
humanity and wisdom, if we have not alreiuly been
taught in the school of revelation."
The Wife.
It is astonishing to see how well a man may live
on a small income, who has a handy and indus
trious wife. Some men live and make a far better
appearance on six or eight dollars a week, than
others do on fifteen or eighteen dollars. The man
does his part well; but the wife is good for noth
ing. She will even upbraid her husband for not
living in as good style as her neighbor—whilo the
fault is entirely her own. His neighbor has a noat,
capable, and industrious wife, and that makes the
difference. Ilia wilt, on the other hand, is a
whirlpool into which a great many silver cups
might be thrown, and the appearance of the water
would remain unchanged. No Nicholas the diver
is there to restore the wasted treasure. It is only
an insult for such a woman to talk to her husband
about her love and her devotion.
Gems of Thought.
Esteem is the mother of love, but the daughter
is often older than the mother.
Graves aro but the print of the footsteps of eter
nal life.
Peace is tho evening star of the soul, as virtues
is its sun, and the two are never apart.
The gifts that circumstances make in our char
acter, we are apt to regard as its native fruit.
gir People arc toe prune to condemn in others
what they practise themselves without scruple.—
Plutarch tolls of a wolf; who, peeping into a but
where a company of shepards were regaling them
selves with a joint of mutton, exclaimed "what a
clamor would they have raised, if they lead caught

Dn. J. li. SCIINECK, —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 and extraordinary cores, in nip
stun person, that you have ever had the pleasure
to record. Indeed, I regret my inability to por
tray, in truthful colors, my consuming disease,
and the remarkable chance which Schrieck's
Pulmonary Syrup effected in so short a time.
I was taken some time previous to December
1848, with a heavy cold, producing incessant
coughing, accompanied with acute pain in the
right side, pains in the back, under the right
shoulder, having heavy night sweate,high fevers
&c., which made me so nervous and restless as
to produce utter prostration. AII theseafflictione
Increased with such violence, that on the 4th of
January last I sent for my family physician. He
attended me faithfully, and prescribed every thing
that medical skill could suggest, but without ef
fect. I found myself gradually growing worse,
and my hopes of recovery lessening as my die
ease increased. My cough became distressing ;
my pains severe; end, extremely debilitated, I
loot all ambition in life, and gave up to a melan
choly depression. My physician examined me,
and informed me I had an abeess on the upper
part of my liver and lower part of one of my lungs.
Notwithstanding all this kill, I grew worse, but
with that tenacity with which we all cling to life,
I concluded to Icave 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 the
is seldom if ever cured. , '
All this time I was en
during sufferings that made life burdensome ; ex
periencing great pain in coughing ; expecte,ra

of my lances, my friends in Bristol suggested
the use of Schneck's ruin - ionic Syrup, but know
ing the many expedients resorted to for the pur
pose of draining money from the afflicted, I hes
itated. 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 change for
the better, and continued it till I had consumed
ten bottles, when I was 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 condition. He recom
mended the further use of the Syrup, which I
continued till I consumed 15 bottle., and found
myself once more restored to health. I will fur
then add, that the consulting physician, seeinglhe
action of the medicine, fully approved its use
To give the reader some idea of the severity
of my case, and the rapid cure affected by the
Syrup, I will state that my usual weight in
health was 177 pounds, which was finally re
duced by my sufieringe 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
ehort epace 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
call on me, at Bristol, opposite Pratt's 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 premonitary
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 Stethoscope, added to my own
miraculous curd, fully satiafieerne, that bed I car
eer submitted myself to his care, I should have
!Heaped much suffering ; but restrained by doubts
and suspicion,which make us all naturally ekep.
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 " kill or cure." To
those afflicted as I have been, again let me soy,
hesitate no longer, my own case is presented to
you as convincing evidence, that when all else
fails your last hope is in Dr, Schneck's Pulmonic
Syrup. I have also for the satisfaction of those
who may be strangers to me, appended to this cell
tificate the names of gentlemen well known in
the walks of public and private life, mid whoee
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 him to have been afflicted as ho states
above. We also know that ho used Schneck's
Pulmonic Syrup, and hive every reason to be
lieve, that to this 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 truth of this statement.

"DAYTON, May 1, 1897.
" Die. A. M. MAURIOEAU--My Dear Sir ' The
Married Woman's Private Medical Companion,' for
which I enclosed one dollar to your address, came
safely to hand. I would not have troubled you with
these few lines, but that I am impelled by a sense
of gratitude, fur myself and wife, to give utterance
to our sincere and heartfelt emotions.
"My wife has been perceptibly sinking for some
three yearn or more, in consequence of her great an
guish and suffering some months before and during
confinement; every successive ono more and more
debilitated and prostrated her, putting her life in im
minent danger, and which was, on the last occasion,
despaired of I supposed that this state of things was
Inevitable, and resigned myself to meet the worst.
At this time (now about two months) I beard your
book highly spoken of, as containing some matters
reaching my case. On its receipt and perusal, I can
not express to yea the relief it afforded my distressed
mind. and the joy its pages Imparted to my wife, on
learning that the great discovery of M. M. Demo-
Meaux provided a remedy. It opened a prospect to
me which I little conceived was possible. No pecu
niary consideration can ever repay the obligations I
am under to you for having been the means of im
parting to us the matters contained in' The Married.
Woman's Private Medical Companion.' But for
this, ere another year would have passed over my
head, in all human probability my wife would have .
been in her grave, and my children left motherless."

log made known certain matters, contained in your
molt invaluable ' Married Woman's Private Medical'
Companion.' It has been worth its weight in gold
to me. If I express myself rather warmly, you wilt
see that I can nut do iso too warmly, when I inform
you of the extent to which I have, through it, been
benefited. I will state my situation when I obtained
your book through the merest cariosity I look upon
ft as one of the molt fortunate events of my life. I
had been married some ten years, and woe the father
of seven children. I was long et-niggling unceasingly
to the end that I might gain a moderate competency,
but the melte of my utmost exertion. at the end left
me about where I was at the beginning of each year;
and that only, with the most stinted economy, suffi
cing with barely the necessaries of life. Finally, this
constant effort was beginning to have its effect upon
my health I felt less capable to endure its comma
ante, while I felt the net:cattily of perseverance.
" This constant, unceasing struggle on toy part was
imperative, in consequence of the prostrated condi
tion of my wife (with occasional intermission) for ex
years, much of the time confined to her bed, and of
course incapable of taking the charge and manage
ment of household affairs. Her condition arose from
causes of which I was ignorant. Oh! what would
