Robert E. Lee Portrait
PROFESSOR GREELEY AT SYRACUSE.
"Now, Boys, rub out! Clean your
Slates, and write down WADSWORTH AND A HUNDRED THOUSAND MAJORITY. I won't have
Dix, and so it ain't no use talking about him. I know the State, and I tell you
WADSWORTH'S the man!"
[Certain events which transpired on the 4th, are said to have rather shaken
the boys' faith in PROFESSOR GREELY'S prophetic power.]

several years with a severe Lung Affection, and that dread disease, Consumption,
is anxious to make known to his fellow sufferers the means of cure. To all who
desire it he will send a copy of the proscription used (free of charge), with
directions for preparing and using the same, which they will find a sure cure
for Consumption, Asthma, Bronchitis, &c. The only object of the advertiser in
sending the prescription is to benefit the afflicted; and he hopes every
sufferer may try his remedy, as it will cost them nothing, and may prove a
blessing. Parties wishing the prescription will please address

proprietor, and is now made with the same care, skill, and attention, which

easily be sold in a year when it is again known that the Kathairon is not only
the most delightful hair dressing in the world, but that it cleanses the scalp

prevents it from turning gray. These are considerations worth knowing. The
Kathairon has been tested for over twelve years, and is warranted as described.
Any lady who values a beautiful head of hair will use the Kathairon. It is
finely perfumed, cheap and valuable. It is sold by all respectable dealers
throughout the world.
