The eyes are always in sympathy with
the body, and afford an excellent indes
of its condition. "When the eyea become
weak, and the lids inflamed and sore, it
is an evidence that the system has

which Ayer's Sarsaparilla is the best
Scrofula, which produced a painful in
flammation in my eyes, caused me much
suffering for a number of years. By the
advice of a physician I commenced taking

medicine a short time I was completely
My eyes are now in a splendid condi

Mrs. "William Gage, Concord, .N. H.
For a number of years I was troubled
with a humor in my eyes, and was unable
to obtain any relief until I -commenced
using Ayer's Sarsaparilla. This medi
cine has effected a completo cure, and I
believe it to be the best of blood puri
fiers. C. E. Upton, Nashua, N. H.
From childhood, and until with a few
months, I have been afflicted with Weak
and Sore Eyes. I have used for these
complaints, with beneficial results,
Ayer's Sarsaparilla, and consider it a
great blood purifier. Mrs. C. Phillips,
I suffered for a year with inflamma
tion in my left eye. Three ulcere formed
on the ball, depriving me of sight, and
causing great pain. After trying many
other remedies, to no purpose, 1 was filial
ly induced to use Ayer's Sarsaparilla.
threo bottles of this medicine I have been
entirely cured. My sight has been re
stored, and thero is no sign of inflamma
tion, sore, or ulcer in my eye. Kendal
T. Bowen, Sugar Tree Ridge, Ohio.
My daughter, ten years old, was afl'.ict
ed with ScrofulousSore Eyas. During
the last two years she never saw light of
any kind. Physicians cf the highest
standing exerted their skill, but with no
permanent success. On the recommen

Ayer's Sarsaparilla, which my daughter
commenced taking. Before she hail used
the third bottle her sight was restored.

TRAVELS OF THE PRESIDENTS.
Monroe's Journey to Ohio Andrew
Jackson's Trip Prom Nash
ville to "Washington.
The custom of taking long ex
cursions through the country by
the presidents is much older than
is generally believed. "Washing
ton had seen pretty much all of
the Union north of the Carolinas
before be became president, and
both John Aclams and his son
John Quincy Adams were great
travelers for their time, Mr. Jef
ferson and Mr. Madison, however,
seldom were long away from the
capital, and their longest trips
were those made to their country
seats in Virginia.
President Morfroe was the first
to conceive the idea of making an
extensive journey through the
states while president, and he
undertook, during one of the long
vacations, to travel northward
through New England and then
westward as far as Ohio. It was
a tedious journev to make, far
more so than an excursion to Ore
gon would now be. Steamboats
were ust beginning to ply some
of the tivers, and most of the
turnpikes were badly kept. Mr.
Monroe traveled in his own coach
in a very simple manner. No
special invitations -were extended
to him, but he was cordially re
ceived everywhere, and was the
first president that a great ma
jority of the American people
ever saw. The sight of a live
president was far rarer at that
time than it is now. "Wherever
Mr, Monroe stopped great crowds
gathered from miles around to see
him, and his summer journey was
the great sensation of that year.
Andrew Jackson was driven in
his own carriage over the fine na
tional road, or Cumberland road
as it was called, from Nashville
to Washington, some GOO miles,
when he went to assume the pres
idency. He was exceedingly fond
of driving, and kept a fine stud.
When he proposed to take a sum
mer jaunt into New England, the
nameless opposition for the tirin
Whig had not then been adopted
raised a great cry, which seemed
only the-more firmly to determine
Old Hickory to go. lie had
never been in New England, or,
indeed, anywhere in the portti.
The report that he was to i t
those portions of the country cre
ated the greatest excitement ev
erywhere, and great preparations
were made to receive him. He
rode in fine style in his own coach,
and, It is said, on several occasions
six horses were attached to it.
All along the country roads peo
ple gathered, many of them wait
ing patiently to see him pass.
Andy Johnson was the first of
recent presidents to make a long
journey through the country. This
was not because of any special in
vitation, but of his own wish.
Whether the speeches that he de
livered during that trip from the
open carriage in which he was
driven through many large towns
were in contemplation when he
quitted Washington or not is not
known. But they were delivered
upon the slightest opportunity.
and, were so personal and so freely I
aiscussea puonc anairs as to ex
cite the widest attention. A thing
like this had never been done be
fore and never since. Johnson
turned his back on that unwritten
law of the White House that re
quires whatever communication
presidents have to make to the
people to be guardedly and most
dignifiediy done in writing. John
son's excursion was not a pure
pleasure trip. He meant busi
ness. He wished to explain his
policy, though his method of doing
it was against the advice of his
. Grant was a great traveler. He
was passionately fond of traveling,
and he was most democratic in
his manner of traveling. After
the war and during the incumben
cy of the presidency, he visited
almost every part of the Union.
The Pullman parlor car was just
beginning to be used on the rail
ways, and Grant's favorite place
was in the rear near the window,
from which he was accustomed to
look upon the country with a
most observant eye. Receptions
were a bore to him, and once,
when on a visit to New Haven, it
was with considerable difficulty
that he could be induced to leave
a seat under a tree in the yard of
the late Henry Farnham, where
he was smoking a cigar and chat
ting with delightful informality, to
attend a grand reception, where
many thousands were waiting for
"At all events," said he, "let
me smoke another cigar before
Hayes was a good deal of a trav
eler, and except Grant was the
only president to visit the Pacific
Gen. Arthur was fond of travel,
but abhorred public receptions.
His two prolonged trips, one into
the wilds of Florida and the other
into the Yellowstone park, were
made as privately as it were possi
ble to do it. And he greatly en
joyed the freedom from conven
tional restraints of dress and cus
toms. Mr. Cleveland, in the little trav
eling he has done, finds the con
finement even of the palace car
irksome, and, whenever he can do
so, he travels at night. He is the
soundest of sleepers in a car, but
has a queer habit of getting up as
soon as dawn lightens up the win
dow. "When traveling in the day
time he frequently sits for hours,
neither'looking to the right nor
left, but calmly staring ahead, as
though Ins mind was busy with
other things than those naturally
suggested by travel.
No president, except Grant,
ever received such a delegation as
that which recently came from St.
Louis and Kansas City to invite
Mr. Cleveland to visit those places,
or which is to come from St. Paul.

Remember that when we assert
the value of BiuNDnETH's Pills we
at the same time refer you to the
thousands of testimonials we have
published supporting all and even
more than we elaim. The best evi
dence of their value lies in these
testimonials. The Pills have been
in uso in this country for overiiftv
years and in that time have surely
been well tested. We never heard
complaint of them. They are harm
less, being vegetable, and always
do their work well.
