"In July, 1866, while my oomjwny(ww
on-the march through to Austin, Texas, my
leg troubled me considerably. Hut I thought
that it was nothing but a recurrence of ttie
effects of a aprain I had received during the
war by my bone failing on me, but the
pain soon increased to such a degree that I
was compelled to ask for medical treatment.
The nirgeons pronounced the cause rheu
marism, and that of the worst order. At
Alexander, Louisiana, I was in such a weak
ened condition, though I continued to march
with my company, that the excessive heat
overcame me and I was sunstruck, remain
ing unconscious several hours. As a result
of the sunstroke, I was unable and liave

day, and every summer I have been over

down on my head, as though a heavy body
was resting there and at times it would
come quickly, like a blow and I would un

into a steady pain which increased until it
seemed as though my head would burst.
There was also a constant ringing in my ;
ears rendering it very difficult for me to.

toe Heart caused me great trouble, ana this
grew so that the slightest shock to my
nerves from a slight noise or other disturb
ance would setmy hwttothumping against
my chest and I would tremble from head to
foot as though I bad St. Vitus' dance. Three
times, from slight circumstances the palpi
tation was so great that I hunted and re
mained unconscious for from seven to ten
hours, at which times my relatives de
spaired of my life. In addition to this the
rheumatism, which had been felt only in
my ankle, began to work up my right leg
until the whole right side of my body was
affected bv it, so much indeed, that my
head was drawn down to my right shoulder.
I was totally unfit for work, lost mystrength
and fteth. I tried every physician who was
Tenoned to me to have a special knowledge
of my case, but after lone trials, I only ex
veneneed temporary relief from the rain.
I was confined to my bed during the greater
part of the cold weather of each year.
" For twenty-eight years I have consulted
phvsieians and taken their prescriptions
without deriving any material benefit. My
ailments increased is intensity until I was
asm red that there was no hope for me. dur

increased my rheumatic pains to such an
extent that I was not only compelled to
quit .the business, but was confined to my
house and bed far nearly six months.

been entirely cured from the ailments from
which 1 was sntferinc.hythe use of Ir. Wil
liams' Pink Pills for Pale People. Though
the name did not at tins strike my fancy, on
November 2S, I purchased a box. In a week
I was astonished to kuow that I felt better
than I hitritursix mouths past, ami before
I had used half a hox 1 was sure titnt 1 had
found a cure iw my ailments. The riugiu?
in my ear Imgan to lessen in volume sua
tiiunly left me. That was the first effect I
experu um! aside from an increased appe
tite. The pain from the rheumatism grad
ually left me, so that within one week from
the time I took my first pili 1 was able to
sit up in bed. On January 1st. I was able
to go out and walk around a little. The
palpitations of my heart entirely ceated.
On Pehrurary 9, 1 was so thorouglily cured,
that I accented a position us night watch

'The rheumatism has entirely left me,
except when I have too much walking to
do during the night, my right ankle pains
me a little, but only when 1 do too much
walking. I now feel like a well mm and
am good for forty years yet. I am titty
years old and have resided in Florence nine
years, having come to Omaha in H81. I
have rernm mended the pills to nine people
in this village all of whom are taking them
and experiencing the same beneficial effects
which I have received. I used nine boxes
of the pills."
Mr. E. W. Cowan, keeper of a general
store at Florence was also seen by the re-
- porter. ir. cowan is aiso an out sonnet,
having been a member of the 144th Infitn
; try. Company C, and the latter of Company J
of the First Minnesota Cavalry. Mr. Cowan
! stated that he contracted chronic diarrhwsv
I while he was in the army and has never
j until within the post few months, received
I any relief. He stated that lie had taken
two boxes of the wonderful Pink Pills and
was now almost thoroughly cured, so much
so in met that he hns discontinued their use.
He was also paralyzed in the left side of his
face, the mouth being drawn up at the left
corner, and he was entirely unuole to move
the muscles of his forehead or to close hit
left eye. He states that he believes ft is
owing to the use of the Pink Pills that he
has recovered the use of his left eye-lid,
which, prior to his taking the pills, had
been fastened down by a physician so that
the eipht would not be destroyed from the
eye filling with dust, and ascribes the re
covery to the Pink Pills. He has gained
fifteen pounds in weight since last October,
and feels healthier and stronger that at any
time since the war. He intends to recom
mence using the pills with the expectation
of a complete recoverv from the paraJvsis.

CELERY IN RHEUMATISM.
The Most Conducive to tlw Health of Any
New discoveries or what claim to
be discoveries of the healing virtues
of plants are continually being made.
One of the latest is that celery is a
cure for rheumatism; indeed, it is as
serted that the disease is impossible if
the vegetable be cooked and freely eat
en. The fact that it is always put
upon the table raw prevents its ther
upeutic powers from being known.
The celery should be cut into bits,
boiled in water until soft, and the
water drank by the patient Put new
milk with a little flour or nutmeg into
a sauce-pan with the boiled celery,
serve it warm, with pieces of toast, eat
It with potatoes, and the painful ail
ment will Boon yield. Such Is the dec
laration of a physician who has again
and ngatn tried the experiment, and
with uniform success. Ho adds that
cold or damp never produces butsimp'.y
develops the disease, of which acid
blood i the primary and sustaining
cause, and that while the blood is alka
line there can be neither rheumatism
Statistics show that in one year,
lt!6ii. 2.610 persons died of rheuma
tism in this country, and every case,
it is claimed, might have been cured
or prevented by the adoption of the
rvmHly mentioned. At least two
thirds of the ciites named heart disease
a e ascribed to rheumatidm and its
agonizing fiiiy, pout. Smal!-po, so
much iircukd, is nt half so destruc
tive as rheumatism, which, it is main
tained by many physicians, n be pre
vented by obeying nature's h'.ws in diet
But if you hvo incurred it Boiled cel
ery is unhesitatingly a specific. The
proper way to ent celery is to have it
cooked as a vefjeuible after the man
ner above described.
The writer makes constant use of it
in this way. Try it once, and you
would do without any vegetable!, with
the single exception uf the potato
rather than calory. Cooked celery is
a delicious din for the table, and the
most conducive to the benlih ot any
vegetable that can be mentioned
Correction of Wrong lmprewloM About
the White Monjuuiua ol the Ocean.
The only two varieties that are worthy
of consideration, owing to their impor
tance, are icebergs and ice noes, says
llome and Country.
The icebergs are originally simple in
iorro just huge hunks of ice. They
are entitled to the name of 'berg," or
mountain, only because they appear as
such when floating on the flat surface
of the open sea. When seen close to
the mountainous, rock-bjund coast of
Greenland, close to where they have
been thrown off by the glaciers, they
look remarkably small and Insignifi
cant. Roughly speaking, they arc
about-as large as a house, and vary in
size about as much as houses do. To
be more accurate, few are over one
hundred and fifty to two hundred feet
in height, and icebergB reaching a
height of three hundred feet are ex
ceptions. The bergs of northern seas arc not so
broad and long as these of the Antarctic
ocean, the latter not infrequently Gov
erning a surface of Over a Kuuarc mile.
The former therefore look like huge
blocks, rather than the huge fragment
of ice plateaus of the southern polar
seas.. Futhermore, the southern ice
bergs appear to be composed of two or
more strata or layers of ice. nndare far
clearer than Uieir northern sisters, on
account of their freedom from foreign
matter and the purity of the ice which
composes them. These distinctive fea
tures are not so promiten-. in the old
bergs which have been partly melted
and brqken away by the water.
The porous glacial ice of the bergs it
about one-seventh lighter than sca
watcr, and only onc-seventhof iLi bulk

must not lie imagined, however, that
an iceberg one hundred feet high
reaches mx hundred feet below the sur
face. This would be the case if the
berg were an exact geometrical ligure,
