Robert E. Lee Portrait
Page) continually. He is a strict disciplinarian, and an example of
General Grant's strict government of the troops in his department will be
gathered from the following: On the night of the 7th of November a portion of
the Twentieth regiment Illinois volunteer infantry, at Jackson, Tennessee,
entered a store and some tents and took therefrom a quantity of goods and
destroyed the tents, the damage amounting to $1242.66. Upon complaint of the
suffering party, and a failure to ferret out the men guilty of the offense, the
General issued a special field order. The two sections embodying the penalty
will be read with interest. They read as follows: 1. That the said sum of
$1242.66 be assessed against said regiment and the officers herein named (the
names being given), excepting such enlisted men as were at the time sick in the
hospital or absent with proper authority; that the same be charged against them
on the proper muster and pay rolls, and the amount each is to pay noted opposite
his name thereon, the officers to be assessed pro rata with the men on the
amount of their pay proper; and that the same so collected will be paid by the
commanding officer of the regiment to the parties entitled to the same. 2. That
Captain Orton Frisbee and Captain John Zunison, of the Twentieth Illinois
infantry volunteers, for willful neglect of duty and violation of orders, are
hereby mustered out of the service of the United States, to take effect this

CHLOASMA, OR MOTH PATCHES.
Blemishes on the face, called
Moth, are very annoying, particularly to ladies of light complexion, as the
discolored spots on the skin show more strongly on blondes than on brunettes,
but they contribute greatly in marring the beauty on either; and any thing that
will remove moth patches without injuring the skin in texture or color, would no
doubt be considered a great achievement in medical science. Dr. B. C. PERRY,
having devoted his whole time and attention to Diseases of the Skin, will
guarantee to remove Moth Patches, Freckles, and other discolorations from the
face without injury to either texture or color of the skin. His success in this,
as in other branches of his speciality—DISEASES OF THE SCALP and Loss of
HAIR—will warrant him in guaranteeing a CURE IN EVERY CASE. For full

ALL THAT IT
CLAIMS TO BE.
So many compounds for the hair
are offered for sale and unduly praised, that we confess we had no expectation
of finding in Burnett's Cocoaine the qualities which it was said to possess. In
this we have been disappointed. Members of our family who have tried it, indorse
it as possessing superior hair-dressing properties; while its freedom from
greasiness, the lustre that it imparts to hair, and its economy, have given it a
permanent place on the toilet table.
We have no hesitancy in
recommending it as being equal to all that it claims to be.—Chicago New
Owing to the increased cost of
all material used in the manufacture of Cocoaine and our other preparations, we
have been compelled to advance the price. Our standard QUANTITY and QUALITY will

patients in advanced stages of the disease.
We need not speak to the public
of its virtues. Throughout every town, and almost every hamlet of the American
States, its wonderful cures of pulmonary complaints have made it already known.
Nay, few are the families in any civilized country on this continent without
some personal experience of its effects; and fewer yet the communities anywhere
which have not among them some living trophy of its victory over the subtle and
dangerous diseases of the throat and lungs. While it is the most powerful
antidote yet known to man for the formidable and dangerous diseases of the
pulmonary organs, it is also the pleasantest and safest remedy that can be
employed for infants and young persons. Parents should have it in store against
the insidious enemy that steals upon them unprepared. We have abundant grounds
to believe the Cherry Pectoral saves more lives by the consumptions it prevents
than those it cures. Keep it by you, and cure your colds while they are curable,
nor neglect them until no human skill can master the inexorable canker that,
fastened on the vitals, eats your life away. All know the dreadful fatality of
lung disorders, and as they know, too, the virtues of this remedy, we need not
do more than to assure them it is still made the best it can be. We spare no
cost, no care, no toil to produce it the most perfect possible, and thus afford
those who rely on it the best agent which our skill can furnish for their cure.

TO THE MARTYRS OF LIVER
COMPLAINT.—Among the wonderful medical properties which have rendered
HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS pre-eminent among the health-restoring preparations
of the age, its anti-bilious virtues are not the least remarkable. No words can
do justice to its marvelous effect upon the diseased liver. Perhaps the simple
words of a convalescent sufferer, who describes it as "going right to the spot,"
tell the story as clearly as may be. It does go right to the spot. It operates
directly upon the disordered organ, and whether unduly active or in a state of
paralysis, restores it to a condition of health. The sickness at the stomach,
pain between the shoulders and in the right side, yellow suffusion of the skin,
costiveness, drowsiness and languor, dimness of sight, colic, palpitation of the
heart, dry cough, low fever, and other symptoms, which indicate the various
phases of acute and chronic liver complaint, are one and all promptly relieved,
and finally removed, by the action of this famous preparation, which is at once
the best of correctives, the gentlest and most genial of aperients, an
infallible regulator, and a powerful restorative. Persons of a bilious habit,
who use the Bitters as a protective medicine, will never suffer the pains and
penalties of liver disease or bilious remittent fever. This, the proprietors

Within a few weeks one of the

eight medical men were called in with a view to giving relief to the severe
pain, which caused the patient to utter piercing cries, which were heard a

Pills were purchased from me. The first dose of six gave ease, and two boxes
effected a perfect cure within two weeks. In our town, there are persons who
