The First Sign
Of failing health, whether in the form oi
Night Sweats and Nervousness, or in a
sense of General Weariness and Loss of
Appetite, should suggc t tlio uso of
Ayer'3 Sarsaparilla. Th.s preparation
i3 most effectiyo 'for giving tone and
strength to tho enfeebled system, pro
moting tho digestion and assimilation of
food, restoring tho nervous forces to
their normal condition, and for purify
ing, enriching, and" vitalizing tho blood.
Ten years ago my health began to fall.
I was troubled with a distressing Cough,
Night Sweats, Weakness, and Nervous
ness. I tried various remedies pro
scribed by different physicians, but
becamo so weak that I could not go tip
stairs without stopping to rest. Jly
friends recommended me to try Ayer's
Sarsaparilla, which I did, and 1 am'nov
as healthy and strong as ever. ilrs.
13. L. Williams, Alexandria, Minn.
I have used Ayer's Sarsaparilla, in my
family, for Scrofula, and know, if it is
taken faithfully, that it will thoroughly
cradicsto this terrible disease. I Jiaio
lso prescribed it as a tonic, as well as an
-ilterathc, and must say that I honestly
beIioc it to bo tho best blood medicino
evercompounded. W. F. Fowler, M. D.,
D. D. S., Greenvillc.Tcnn.
It would bo impossible for mo to de
scribe what I suffered from Indigestion
and Headache up to tho time I began
taking Ayer's Sarsaparilla. I was under
tho care of various physicians, and tried
a great many kinds of medicines, but
never obtained more than temporary re
lief. After taking Ayer's Sarsaparilla
for a short time, my hcadaclio disap
peared, and my stomach performed its
duties moro perfectly. To-day my
health is completely restored. Mary
llarlcy, Springfield, Mass.
I iiavo been crcatlv benefited bv the
prompt uso of Ayer's Sarsaparilla. It
tones and invigorates tho system, regu
lates tho action of tho digcsthc and
assimilative organs, ' and vitalizes tho
blood. It is, without doubt, tho most
reliable blood purifier yet discovered.

SEHO OP A BOWSPBIT.
On April 12, 1877. one of the
most terrible storms that ever visi
ted the North Carolina coast be
gan, and lasted for three days, cul
minating oh the 15th at Cape Fear.
It was fearfully destructive to life
and property, wrecking many
ships with their crews and cargoes
and burying them beneath the
waves. One large, three-masted
vessel broke up, and parts of her
drifted into Smithvillc bay, a prize
for the wreckers, which not only
illustrated the force of the storm,
but was a curiosity in the strength
of its structure.
"All her bolts," said one who
examined pieces of the wreck, "are
bni&b, four, six and eight feet long;
the knees are Solid iron, and the
outside planking si 'inches
through and of stout nine."
, There-were two Smithvillu pilot
boats the Mary K. 'Sprunt and
the Uriah 2'immoiis'crashg off
the coast at the time the fctorm
commenced, and finding it impos
sible to make a harbor they were
compelled to stand off and try to
weather it out. The Mary K.
Sprunt had a crew of five men,
viz.: Christopher Pinner, Robert
Walker, Charles Dasher Jr.,
Thomas Grissom and Lawrence
Gillespie, the cook. They were
brave and skillful men, but after a
desperate struggle, in which all
that the most skillful seamanship
could accomplish had been ex
hausted, she went down with all
on board. , ,
On the 2Sth tho body of Tom
Grissom was found by the pilot-
boat JI, ) eUermaitn lloating at
sea, about nine miles out, and the
pilots also found the Jfury K.
Sprunt lying on tlie bottom, in
eleven and a half fathoms, her
white sails, torn- into 'ribbons,
shining up through the blue depths
and undulating with the motion of
the restless sea.
. The Uriah 2'immons had a-crcw
of four men C. C. Morse, Julius
Weeks, Joseph Thompson Jr.'and
Joseph Arnold and of these Ar
nold was the youngest, hardly 20
years of age. Every precaution
was taken upon the approach of
the storm, and, with only enough
canvas to steer by, she faced it.
All day and night of the 12th sh
lea'ped and rolled aiul dived lik .:
cork on the waves, while the htw' in
increased in fury every li'-u.
Day dimly dawned on the lUth
over a howunjr waste ot waters,
whose billows heaved her skvward,
leaving great chasms, down whose
sides sbe. rushed headlong as if to
certain destruction. A gray mibt
shrouded sky and sea, and the
storm fiend shrieked with that un
earthly voice which, once heard,
is never forgotten. Cowering be
fore the blast, licked from stem to
stern by the tongue of the hungry
sea,- groaning and sobbing, as sbe
strained up the watery ncights'or
slid down the hissing gulfs, the
little ship drove on. Although
carrying but thirteen yards of can
vas, the jaw of the boom was eat
ing into tho foremast like a fam
ished animal. With the advan
cing day the fury of tho -gale in
creased. It seemed as if the spirit
of an angry god walketlthe waters
and lashed the .elements in hi&
wrath. A mountainous wave,
leading the host of bilious, would
rush toward the little vessel, and,
toppling as if to fall upon and
crush her, would lower its crest,
and, gliding beneath her trembling
timbers, lift her almost-clear in the
air.andtoss her, toy like, to
anotherhuge, billow,- while the
multitudinous" ocean roared Wit h
The crew of tho Timmim, bravo
and hardy mariners us they were,
and accustomed to storms on the
broad water from. childhood, stood
appalled at tho surpassing terrors
of this awful scene. Lashc'd in the
cockpit, with vice-like grip upon
the wheel and drenched to the skin,
s.at Julius Weeks, who had boon
there thirteen hours. At lar.l,
toward afternoon, -to the, utter dis
may of all on board, the jib halyard
parted, and flying down the stay,
the jib hung, bag like, below the
bowsprit, and instantly the s-.-i,
lik6 a ravenoU3 beast,- fell upon it
and held it down as if devouring
it. Tho brave boat struggled haul
to lift hen bow, -thus weighted from
the waves, and with a mighty effort
succcdcd. Again the sea seized
and held the bellying jib, and again
the gallant boat, struggled, raised
it clear, but with weakening power.
.The pilots now realized that,
Unless immediately released from
this new and frightful danger, the
Timmons could not hold her head
up, but must founder after a few
more struggles; bat, feeling as
sured that an attempt to reach the
jib-stay would result in certain
death, as no man could ever remain
on the bowsprit even if he could
reach it, they were stricken with
"We are lost," exclaimed one;
"unless we can cut that jibstay we
arc certainly gone. A man can't
live there, but it is our only hope."
Who should do the desperate
deed? they hurriedly agreed to
decide the matter by lot, and were
about to proceed to do so, when
Joe Arnold, who was now at the
"Ilold on, men! You are all
mairied and have families; I am a
single man; let mo-try. it, ,niid if 1
go oerboard it will be all right;"
and, surrendering 'the wheel the
brave boy drew his shcalh knife,
and putting it between his teeth
It was impossible to keep his
footing, and so he crawled, cau
tiously along the deck (there is no
railing to a pilot-tyoat), holding on
as best he could. Ilis companions
watched him. with tho eagerness of
m'en whose only hope of life hung
on his steadiness ot nerve and
physical strength. If he reached
the bowoprit in safety, the sea
would certainly beat him off, lor
every tunc the little craft plunged
the waves seemed to leap up and
meet her. For the first time since
childhood fervent prayers rose to
the lip-, of some of these- men who
had "fullowcd the sea" all their
days without thinking of Him
whose nicsoncp they now realized
as they had never realized it before
and tears lowed -freely down their

held on. Tho storm w-as now in
describably fierce and the sea
terrific. As the vessel slowly re
covered herself he loosened his
hold and crawled toward ijie bow
sprit. He i cached it, got astride
of it, looked his arms mound it,
li(..i long breath, and then, with
i rush I he Timvioiis buried hei
nrad and Joe uisapnenred in the
"-Tlie crew held their breath in
an agony of suspense, while their
eyes strained toward the boiling
foam which eiigrtlfed him. In a
moment the staunch cial't, as if
conseious of the heioic effort for
her relief, and stimulated by it to
renewed exertion, bounded for
ward and upward through the
dashing waters. And onHhc bow
sprit, which was pointing skyward,
the crew saw Joe straightening
himself into a sitting position, his
knife still held between his clench
ed teeth, and preparing 'to crawl
still further out. Again and again
this' scene was enacted, each
plunge and rise finding the hero
nearer to the object at which he
aimed, while the crew fairly ached
with the intensity of their emo
tions. ' .
lie rouclied it at last, and,
watching the most favorable op
portunity, released his right arm,
snatched the knife from his fecth,
and with a swift and powerful
stroke cut the jibstay through .as
the trqm!51iug vessel started down
another lea, restored the knife to
its place, again clasped the bow
sprit in his arms, and again disap
peared bnt'onlv for 4a moment,
for thu Timmons. now relieved of
the-weight which held lior down,
sprang out of the threatening gulf
as if with new life iuspired. It
was x great relief, but the tempest
was- still at its height, and now both
Joe and the crew realized that the
most hazardous pirt ol this heroic
enterprise was still before him,
uamelv, getting back to the deck
atnn. It was not unlike coming
down-from albft , lie had to re
peat tliis desperate performance
-Slowly, and --still -astride 6f the
bowsprit, and still alternately
plunged into the sea and lifted
lnijh in air, he began the fearful
task. KvV-ryv ins-tant was a crisis,
every moment threatened tu be
his last: but slowly and steadily
he approached the deck. Finally
he reached it, slid alonr the foic
mast; clasped 'it as before, and, at;
last, crawlmir, laid himsclt down
exhausted amid his awe-struck
companions. . .
That storm still howled, the sea
was still awful, and night was com
ing on another night of horrors
but the Timmons carried her head
free and a feeling akin to confi
dence was beginning to take the
place of despair in the breasts of
tlie crew. The- passed into the
gloom of the starless night upon
that wild waste of waters, clinging
to the hope that with the coming
of another day the storm would
pass. And their hope was not in
vain. Graduallj' the violence of
the wind abated although the sea.
still leaped frantically and by
the" next morning had ceased to
be alarming. They looked eagerly
for the land, gave more sail, aud
in a few hours recognized points
which assured them that they were
off Georgetown, S. C. With great
ful hcaits they steered for the bar
and entered tho bay in safety, with
no other damage to the Timmons
than the loss of her boats, sails and
rigging, a foremast rubbed ahnost
in two and some strained timbers'.
Joe Arnold still lives and pur
sues his callintr. and ho will bo I
greatly astonished if ho ever sees
this account of his heroism, for he
is modest and does not think he
did anything worth talking about.
