There arc three great reme
dies that every person with
weak lungs, orwith consump
tion itself, should understand.
These remedies will cure
about every case in its first
stages i and many of those
' more advanced. It is only
the most advanced that are
hopeless. Even these are
wonderfully relieved and life
itself greatly prolonged.
What are these remedies ?
Fresh air, proper food and
of Cod-Liver Oil with Hypo
phosphites. Be afraid of
draughts but not of fresh air.
Eat nutritious food and drink
plenty of milk. Do not forget
that Scott's Emulsion is the
oldest, the most thoroughly
tested and the highest en
dorsed of all remedies for
weak throats, weak lungs and
consumption in all its stages.

blockading squadron, and was told
that marines were being landed from
the Marblehead. The next morning,
says the Buffalo Express, Capt. Mc
Calla came alongside of the Texas in
his launch and announced that four of
his men had been killed and that there :
was still fighting. Chaplain Jones
then approached Capt. Philip and said
that he would like to go ashore and look
after the wounded and read the serv
ices for the dead. Capt. Philip gave in
stant permission, and the chaplain pre
pared to go ashore with a boatload of
marines that was in charge of a young
lieutenant. As the worthy chaplain
clambered over the side ot the Texas
the lieutenantlookedupfrom the boat
and called out:
"Where are you going?"
"Lieutenant," replied the chaplain,
"I am going to bury the dead."
"For goodness sake give us a chance
to get killed first," rejoined the of
ficer. "Lieutenant, I am going to bury the
dead that have already fallen," re

lieutenant quickly replied:
