scene took place on the 6th, in a grave
yard at Edwardsville, Illinois, where,

MALARIA EVERYWHERE.-Rarely has
thole been a season as fruitful as this of male
rious diseases. Not only on the parairies and
in the valleys o f the West ; not merely in all
the old haunts of Fever and Ague and Bilious
Remittent Fever have these prostrating dis
eases been unusually virulent; but they have
extended to towns and cities never before in
fested with them, and have ascended the
mountains and attacked thousands of people
supposed to have been placed by the laws of
Nature above their reach. Hence we are
compelled to admit that a fatal element per
vades the universal air this season, and should
at once resort to the only approved preventive
of its consequences, Hostetter's Stem= Bit
ters, a tonic so potent, an anti-septic so per
fect, an alterative so irresistible, and a Mime
lant so pure, that it enables the human system
to resist and baffle all the predisposing causes
of disease. With the confidence that one
clothed in incombustible garments might move
among blazing buildings, the man who arms
himself against, malaria with this powerful
defensive medicine may walk a fever-scourged
district fearless of its insalubrious atmosphere.
The intermittents and remittents at present so
general in all parts of the country may be but
the forerunners of a deadlier scourge now on
its way westward from the far East. Prepare
