At the first settlement of this state, they
were compelled to be •onstantly under
arms as it were to guard agnint the wily
Indians, and escape the murderous toma
hawk. As the father, so the children
grew up, taught, in the earliest infancy
possible, to poise the rifle and direct its
aim. As amunition was not always conve
niently to be had, the father would dole
out to his son a certain amount of charges
for his rifle, for each one of which. he must
bring home some sort of game, or get a
taste of hickory for each missing shot.
Many years ago, 1 was conversing with
my father on the wonderful skill of :he
Kentuckians, when he related to me the
following anecdote :
I was out in the wilds of Kentucky,
some years before the war, on a survey
ing expedition, and bad an opportunity of
studying the character of the early settlers
for a considerable length of time. It be
come necessary for me to stop a few days
at a log-built tavern, and to while away
the time, I took my trusty rifle and explo
red the woods for game, of which there
was an abundance. The landlord of the
tavern had a fine young son, about ten
years old, who accompanied me with his
rifle, and always had extremely good luck.
On one occasion the fates seemed to be ad
verse to Inin ; for perceiving a squirrel on
a tree, he up with his rifle, blazed away,
doWn came the squirrel. The look of dis
may with which he viewed his game I
shall never forget. Dropping'the butt of
his rifle upon the ground, he burst Into
tears. In the utmost surprise I inquired
what the matter was. He answered :
"Dady'll lick me !"
'.Lick you I What for i"
"Because I didn't hit him in the head."
I soothed him all I could, but his day's
pleasure was over. On returning to the
tavern, I interceded for Win all in my pow.
er, to save him from the hickory, but it
was of no use; the application must be
made, if only for example.
"No, 11Q stranger ; if I let him off, I
break is standing rule of our state. I was
never let off; and what was good for me
is good for him. Ile roust shoot right or
put up with what ho gets."
The hickory was applied, but no bone s
Suet tntiniug as that, which was univer
sal in those parts, tell the secret of Ken
tucky rifle shooting.
GOOD ADVICE FOR GIRLS.
Mr. Weaver's new work, "Aims and
Aids for Girls and Young Women," will
bo found not less valuable than his former
productions. Wo select a few short pas
sages almost at random.
''Fashion kills more women than toil
and sorrow. Obedience to Fashion is a
greater transgression of the law of woman's
nature, a greater injury to her physical and
mental constitution, than the hardships of
poverty and neglect. The slave-woman
at her tasks will live and grow old and
see two or three generations of her mis
tresses fade and pass away. The washer
woman, with scarce a ray of hope to cheer
her in her toils, will live to see her fash
ionable sisters all die around. The kitch
en maid is hearty and strong, when her la
dy has to be nursed like a sick baby. It is
a sad truth that Fashion-pampered women
are almost worthless for all the great ends
of human life. They have but little force
of character ; they have still less power of
moral will, and quite as little physical ener
gy. They live for no great purpose in
life ; they accomplish no worth ends. They
aro only doll forms in the hands of miltin•
ers and servants, to be dressed and fed to
order. They dress nobody ; they feed no
body ; they instruct nobody ; they bless no
body, and save nobody. They write no
books ; they set no rich examples of virtue
and womanly life. If they rear children,
servants and nurses do it all, save to eon.
ceive and give them birth. And when
reared what are they ? What do they
even amount to, but weaker scions of they
old stock ? Who ever heard of a fashion
able woman's child -exhibiting any virtue
or power of mind for which it became emi
nent ? Read the biographies of our great
and good Men and women. Not one of
then; had a fashionable mother. They
nearly all sprung from plain, strong-mind
ed women, who had about as little to do
with Fashion as with the changing clouds.
EMPLOYMENT AND OPPORTUNITY.
I would have every boy and girl in
the whole country taught to make their
own living at some useful employment ;
to mark out for themselves e sphere of ac
tion and then fill that sphere ; to be useful
in some honorable pursuit. I would not
put the boys to trades and professions to
make them great and good, and fold up the
girls' hands and lay them away in the
drawer or shut them up in the parlor. I
! would not make the boys self-reliant and
vigorous by generous employment, and the
girls weak, puny and dependent by Idle
ness or folly. I would not give the boys
opportunities to develop their powers and
become noble awn, and deprive the girls
of all these glorious privileges. I would
not open a thousand avenues to distinction,
wealth and worth to the boys, and compa
ratively none to the girls. I would not
send the boys out into the fieldof life brave
ly to earn their own living, and glow
strong, in doing it, and the girls out to beg
their living of the boys, and grow weak
and worthless in their dependent beggary.
I like the girls too well to have them thus
mistreated. I would give them just as
good a chance as the boys have. They
should not he degraded with half pay, and
only two or three ways to get a living, just
because they were made to be women."
PATENT AlmaNes.—The following
certificate to the efficacy of patent pills is
taken from the Philadelphia _Mercury :
John Labberie, was supposed to be in
the last stage of consumption-in the year
1810, suffering at the same time a severe
attack of the rheumatism liver complaint,
dropsy, gravel, and cholera rnorbus. Sim
iltaneously, also, I took the small pox.—
The latter assuming a chronio form, com
pletely destroyed my lungs, liver, spinal
marrow, nervous system, and the entire
contents of my cranium, I got so low
that I did not know my brother-in-law
when he came to borrow money. For
three months swallowed nothing but twen
ty packages of Kunklehansen's Pills,
which effected an immediate relief in two
weeks. Sworn and subscribed, &c.
"P. S.—My uncle, Bacchus Pottingor,
was afflicted so long with the gout, (con-
tracted by Lying too much on bear's meat
and alligator's eggs,) that has became a
burden to him. He only took four boxes
of said Pills, and his life was a burden to
him no longer."
OLD WIGGINS' WIFE.OId Wiggins
was an awful snorer. He could be heard
farther than a blacksmith's forge; but his
wife became so accustomed to it, that it
soothed her repose. They were a very
domestic couple—never slept apart for
many years. At length the old man was
required to attend court some distance.— I
The first night after, his wife never slept a
wink; she missed the snoring. The next
two nights passed away in the same man.

GREATEST MEDICAL DISCO
VERY OF THE AGE.
Dr. Kennedy, of Roxbury, NJ discovered in one
of our common pasture wedds a remedy
the worst scrofula down to a c.unmon
Ile has tried it in over 1100 WO, and never
failed except in two cases, (both tl tinder humor.)
Ile has now in his passeNsion ore: two hominid
certificates of its viatue, all within twenty miles
Two bottles aro warranted to corn a nursing
One to three bottles will cure tl e worst kind
of Pimples on the face.
T oor three bottles will clear the system o
Two bottles aro warranted to cure the worst
case of Erysipelas.
One to two bottles are warranted to curo all
humor in the Eyes.
Two bottles aro warranted to cure roofing of
the ears and blotches among the hair.
Foie to six bottles aro warranted to curo cor
rupt mid running ulcers.
One bottle will curo scaly eruption of the
Two to three bottles aro warranted to cora the
worst case of ilngworm.
Two to throe bottles aro warranted to ewe the
most desperate cave pi' rheumatism.
Three to four bottles are warranted to cure the
Five to eight bottles will cure the worst case
A benefit is altays experienced from the first
battle, and a perfect cure is warranted when the
above quantity is taken.
Reader, I pedaled o:cr a thonsand bottles of
this in the vicinity of Boston. I knew the ellbrt
of it in every case. So sure as water will extin
guish fire, so sure will this core humor. I never
sold a bottle of it but that sold another; after a
trial it always speaks for itself. There are two
things about this herb that appear to me surpri
sing; first that it grows in our pastures, in some
places quite plentiful, and yet its value has never
been known until I discovered it in 1846—second
that It should coca all kinds of humor.
In order to give some idea of tha sudden rise
and great popularity of the discovery. I will
state that in April, 1853, I peddled it and sold
about six bottles per day—in April, 1854, I sold
over one thousand per day alit.
Some of the wholesale Druggists who have
been In business twenty and thirty years, say
that nothing in the annals of patent medicines
was ever like it. 'Do re is a universal praise of
it from all quarters.
In my own practice I always kept it strictly for
humors—bat since its introduction ns n general
family medicine, great and wonderful virtues
have been found in it that I never suspected.
Several eases of epilci,tie lits—a disC.ise which
was always considered incurable, have been cu
red by a few bottles. 0, what it mcrey if it will
prove effectual in all eases of that dreadful nail
adythere are but few who have more of it thou
I know of several cases of Dropsy, all of whom
aged people cored by it. For the various disea
sos of the Liver, bieik Ilcailacho, Dyspepsia,
Asthma, Fever aml Ague, Pain in the Side, Dis
eases of the Spine, and particularly in diseases
of the Kidneys, &e., the discovery has done more
good than any medieino over known.
No change of diet over necessary—eat the best
you ran get and enough of it.
DiusevioNs FOR USE.—Adults ono table
spoonful per day—Children over ten years dos
sett spoonful'—Children from five to eight Scum
teaspoonful'. As no directions can bo applica,
ble to all constitutions, take stifle:lent to operate
on the be wets twice a day.

FEVER AND AGUE CURE,
For the prevention and Cure of Intermittent
and Remittent Fevers, Fever and Ague, Chills
and Fever, Dumb Ague., General Debility Night
Sweats, and all other forms of disease which have
a common origin in Malaria or Miasma.
This is a natural antidote which will entirely
protect any resident or traveller even in the
most sickly or swatnpy localities, from any Ague
or Bilious disease whatever, or any injury from
constantly inhaling Malaria or Miasma.
It will instantly check the Ague in persons
who hare suffered for any length of thne, from
one day to twenty yours, so that they need rover
to have another chill, by continuing in use ac
cording to directions. The patient at once begins
to recover appetite and strength, and continues
until a permanent
,and radical cure is effected.
One or two bottles will answer for °raillery
rases ; some may require more. Directions prin
ted German, French and Spanish, accompany
each bottle. Price ono dollar. Liberal dis
counts made to the trade.

EVIDENCE OF SAFETY.
New York, June 11, 1855.
"I have made a chemical examination of
"Nhode's Fever and Ague Cure," or Antidote
to Malaria, and have tested it for Krscuie, Mer
cury, Quinine, nod Strychnine, but have not
found a particle of either in it, nor have I found
any substance in its composition that would
prove injurious to the constitution.

EVIDENCE OF MERIT.
Lewisburg, Colon Co., Pa., May 2, 1855.
Mr. J. A. Rhodes—Dear Sir: The box of
medicine you sent me was duly received on the
11th of April. I have sold objet ono half of it,
and so fur the people who have used it, and six
of the eases were of long standing ; -toy sister.
who had it fur five or six years back, and could
never get it stopped, except by Quinine, and
that only as Jung as she would take, is now,
think, entirely cured by your remedy.

CAUTION TO AGUE SUFFERERS.
Tao no more Arsenic, Tonics, Mercury, Qui
nine, Febrifuge., Strychnine, or Antl-Pcriodics,
of any kind. The well-known inefficiency of
these noxious poisons proves them to be the off
spring of false 'medical principles, or of mercena
ry quacks. The only remedy in existence that
is both surd and harmless is
RHODES' FEVER AND AGUE CURE.
ACILSTS—In Huntingdon, Thomas Road & Son,
