No. 11. Black. — For each pound of goods take 2 ozs. of tlie extract of logwood
and 1 oz. of blue vitriol; dissolve them separately in hot soft water; saturate tlu-
goods first in the vitriol water, then turn the vitriol water into the other and keep
the dye at a scalding (not boiling) heat for twenty minutes ; if cotton goods, hoU for
ten minutes, stirring constantly to prevent spotting. To set tlie color, immerse the
goods with scalding hot water, containing a teacupful of salt to three gallons of
water ; let the goods remain in until cold, then hang them to dry without wringing;
boiling suds will set this color of black dyed silks.

i^o. 13. Purple on CJotton ok Woolen. — Dissolve 2 ozs. Cudbear with gentle
heat in aufScient water to cover the goods. First dip the goods in saleratus water,
wring them and put in the dye, and let them remain half an hour. If you wish a
darker shade, wring again and wet in saleratus water, then again into the lye and
add 2 ozs. of alum.

No. 13. Pink on Woolen. — Boil }2 o^- powdered Cochineal, in suffi ent soft
water to cover the cloth, for half an hour, then strain carefully to remove ail sedi-
ment, and put in the cloth, having previously soaked it thoroughly in alum water,
and let it stand until you have the desired shade.

No. 14. Brown on Cotton or Woolen. — Take % lb. of Catch and 1 pail of
water; put in the goods and boil twenty minutes. Dissolve 4 ozs. Bichromate of
Potash in 1 pail of water, then dip the goods from the cutch into the potash, letting
them remain until they are the desired shade. Rinse thoroughly in clear water
or in suds.

No. 15. Red on Woolen. — To % lb. of Madder, soaked over night in brass or
copper, add 1 oz. Madder Compouad. Then add the goods and bring slowly to a
scalding heat; leave in the dye until they are the desired shade, then rinse in clear
water, '^'lis color will grow deeper the longer it is kept in the dye.


1 oz. of Aniline Dyes will Dye, Medium Shade, 16 lbs. of Wool, or 8 lbs.
of Silk or Cotton Goods.

It is very important to have a pure water hath free from all foreign ingredients
which may be injurious to the dye. To clean water add J^ lb. Alum to 5 gallons of
water, and boil and skim.

In dyeing with Aniline Color, it is essential to use only wooden or tin vessels ;
copper or iron is very in j urious to the color. Where woolen yarns contain grease
it is important to wash them well in a bath of soda and soap.

Dyeing. — Preparo a bn,t.h, scalding hot, not boiling, put into it as mu^^x^of th-^
dissolved dye as will give you the desired shade, and then put in your goods,
which, after a lapse of twenty or thirty minutes, will be completely dyed. Wash
the goods only slightly, after dyeing, in pure water.

Aniline Red. — Dissolve the crystals in the proportion of 1 drachm to 2 ozs. of
water or alcohol. Strain through cloth to avoid specks on the fiber.

J^° These Recipes are well worth preserving, for they are all genuine, and have
been procured with much trouble and expense.



Universal Cough Syrup operates as a tonic to the Stom-
acli, moves the Liver and Kidneys, opens the pores of the Skin, stinndates the
glands of the tliroat, loosens a cough, and heals the lungs. The bringing of all
these Blood-cleaiising organs into activity makes it a Universal Cough Syrup. For
Cvinip in all its forms there is nothing l)etter.

It arrests that sticky exudation from the glands of the throat and lungs, form-
ing the membrane or coating in Menihraiteotis Croup, by taking the poison
\\.Ctt'e«S^YcYouN) "^"^ "*■ ^^^^ l^^lood by nature's channels and loosening the mend)rane already formed,
* ^ enabling the jiatient to throw it off. No family with children can afford to be

without it. A bottle will often save the little one's life and a large' doctor bill.

Ladies will find it a perfect regulator of the system if they have taken cold at a critical time,
suiting in a cough. It takes out of tlie blood the poison resulting from suppressed menses. It has
riired where the best doctors have failed.

It relieves Asthma, enabling the patient to go to bed and sleep as well as ever, and thousands
have been cured by its use. Troublesome Nlght-COiif/hs are stopped by a dose at bedtime, and by
touching the tongue witii it once or twice during the night if the throat bpeomes dry. For Whooj)-
inff-couffh, physicians who have witnessed its effects pronounce it "thc! best thing they ever used.
It will loosen, not dry up a cough. The prescription was made by one of the most skillful and suc-
cessful practitioners in America, after fifty years' experience in treating throat and lung diseases.

Are your lungs sore ? Is breathing difficult ? If so, when you are through talking for the d;ty,
take a liberal dose of the Syrup, and a new day will find you relieved. It seldom fails.

Bronchitis and Sore Throat yield readily to its use. Great n\nnbers of patients given up to die
of consumption have been permanently cured by it. Pleasant to take. 2oc., 50c., and f 1.00.

Three Doses Cured Him.

Three years ago I was traveling in York State, and took a very
bard cold, which became seated on ray lungs.

I coughed three or four weeks, until ray lungs were so sore that I
became alarmed about myself.

I called on a druggist in Penn Van, N.Y., and asked for the best
cough medicine in his store, and he gave me a bottle of Uuive sal.
Three doses cured me entirely, and I have since given it to others,
with like results. CUYLER SAWYER.

Lawrence, Kan.

He ReconiiiiendH It.

I have sold the Universal Cough Syrup for about five years, and
't has become a staple article in ray trade, and the leading medicine
of its class. From its sale, and from what my customers sas' of its
effects, I commend it to the attention of all in need of a cough remedy.

Unfailing Success.

Will you please inform me the price of half a dozen bottles Uni-
versal Cough Syrup, delivered to my address?

I use it myself, and give it to chiMren, grand-children, and neigh-
bors with unfailing success.

One case in particular, I remember of a neighbor whose daughter
was suffering from a cough, which they were utterly unable to cure,
nothing seeming to help her in the least. I gave liim a portion of my
bottle, at the same time informing him where he could procure more
if needed. Not long after this I saw his daughter in church ^inging
like a lark, and she told me the Syrup was just the right thing in
just the right time.

Previous to its use, various devices were used to break up our
colds, but nothing have we found so pleasant and effectual as a little
Syrup. W. M. BOWKER.

R. Ab H. DBYIs' Family Pills are not an active cathartic, but
rather an alterative, or gentle, laxative pill. A pill that will correct and cure the habit
formed by so many who have taken the active cathartic, liver-stimulating pills until so habitually con-
stipated that they can only be relieved by the constant use of physic. For this purpose take one or
two of Dr. A. II. Davis' Family Pills at bedtime each night until the bowels become regular. For
Boils, two pills taken at bedtime each night until they disappear, will cleanse the system of the im-
purities upon which the boils feed.

If you have Typhoid Fever, taking four pills every four hours until the bowels move, has
never been known to fail in breaking up the disease if taken before hemorrhage of the bowels sets
in. Dr. A. IT. Davis says he has used them 35 years in a large practice, often when the disease was
epidemic, and never knew thehi to fail, even when a council of physicians had pronounced the eases
hopeless. Treat JBilioiis Fever same as Typhoid.

For Diphtheria, take four pills every four hours until the bowels move, and two hours after each
dose of pills take a dose of Home Relief, as its stimulating effect will prevent the collapse of the sys-
tem, so often the fatal result of this terrible disease, and it assists in opening the poi-es of the skin- and
starting the liver and kidneys into activity, enabling them to take out of the blood the poison being
depasitad in tkc^throat and lungs, and, which will smother the patient if not thrown off.

^o jnirifij the blood, and give tone and strength to the system, they have no superiors.

They will cure Difspepsia, Drojtsy, Erysipelas, Female Weakness, and all diseases
dependent upon glandular obstruction. Ladies who try them will never do without them. Two pills
will cure Headache every time. They do not sicken or gripe the most delicate, and are the
mildest and best pill made. They are purely vegetable. 25c, per box, by mail, on receipt of price.

Cured, nnd Anxions to Cure Others.

I am prompted to send for more of those invaluable pills which I
procured of yon about two years ago.

The Pills, with Salicene. as you recommend, cured me of Dyspep-
sia, which I had suffered with for years, and for which I had tried
many medicines with but little or no help, but, after taking a full box
of the Family Pills with the Salicene, my stomach became so well
that I could eat anything my appetite craved.

I am anxious, whenever I hear any one complaining of Dyspepsia,
to have lliem try these Pills, and I am now wi ilinp for the benefit of
Buch per.-ons. Enclosed you will lind $1, for which please send
value in Pills. MRS. HANNAH M. TRACY.

What a Clereryinan Says.

On my trip to California and return I found the change of habit,
food, water, and climate a severe test to the system, and I then real-
ized the wi.sdom of taking with me a snpply of your Family Pills.

They not only served me an excellent purpose, but were the means
of curing many others.

For the past five years we have used them in our family, and
others, at our instance, having used them have adopted them.

I consider the Pills a }>ooi\ to any one requiring a reliable family
medicine, and you are at perfect liberty (o make any use you wish
of this letter. Sincerely yours, ,

Home Relief for P&in i^ just wlmt its niunc iini>lies, and its use will save
both aches and doctor bills. Tt is a veritable medicine chest in itself, and is the remedy
in the world I'or the little ills and accidents constantly occurring.

It is a positive cure i'or Congestion or Inflammation in every form, and is, for this reason, so
valuable in so many ditferent complaints in various parts of the body, which are the result of one or
the other of these two causes.

Used internall^V it is perfectly harmless, and does not constipate the bowels. It promotes the
secretion of the fluids which dissolve and digest the food, stops fermentation, neutralizes the acids, and
equalizes the circulation, thus promptly curing Colic, Cholera, Cholera Morbus, Cholera Infantum, and
the peculiar Summer Complaints brought on by hot weather, eating imripe fruit, or change of water.
It entirely relieves inflammation of the stomach caused by excessive use of alcohol.

For these complaints it has no eqtial in affording prompt and certain relief. For traveler.';
and families with children it is invaluable.

It stimulates the digestion, and, if taken after meals, will relieve the distressed feeling experienced
by so many after eating. It relieves teething children, and keeps them healthful, if given a tea-
spooufnl of a mixture composed of a tumbler of well-sweetened water and a few drops of Home Relief
after each movement of the boWel?.

It causes cuts to heal in one half the usual time, and prevents Blood Poison, and for Burns,
Bruises. Scalds, Headache, Neuralgia, Pleurisy, Pneumonia, Painful Menstruation, Inflamnuition of
the Kidneys, Quinsy, Congestion of the Bowels or Lungs, Chilblains, Toothache, Earache, Cramps,
Diarrhoea, Bruises, Lameness, Fresh Wounds, Catarrh, Cold in the head, or any complaint the result of
Congestion or Inflammation, or where it exists, the Home Relief will be found unequaled.

Try it. "No Cube No Pay." 25c., 50c., and 75c. ; large size most economical.

Cured with Three Doses.

I was sevcroly attnckod with Congestion of the Lungs. I took
three doses of the Home Relief in warm water— the whole within
twenty minutes — and then saturated a flannel cloth with it, and laid
it on ray lungs. Soon I began to perspire freel.v, and was so com-
pletely relieved that I was able to return to my i)usiness down town
the next day.

For several years I have had a Chronic Diarrhosa every summer.
I have tried many things each year without snecess. I am happy to
say that three doses of the Home Relief effected a permanent cure, for
I have passed a summer free from the difficulty.

In both 'these cases my bowels were left" healthy and free from
constipation. E. C. BAILEY.

Appreciates It,


The Home Relief came to hand all right, and it gives me great
pleasure to testify to its value, which I greatly appreciate. There is

no medicine I know of with anything like its value as a family
remedy, and I trust you will meet with abundant success.

Yours truly, A. J. MARSH.

"Could not Feed Myself."

GiRARD, February 8, ISSl, )
Erie Co., Pa. S

Dear Sir : For the past eight years I have been a great sufferer
from Kheumatism, often being laid up with it, say two-thirds of my
time, until about one year ago. A short time ago I had another severe
-attack, which was so severe that I could not even feed myself
Through the advice of a friend I was induced to try your remedy, and
after I had used three bottles I found myself, to all appearance, free
from the dilBcuHy. CHARLES W. NOYES.

All Crippled Up.

Livery and Excha>

Six years ago I was all crippled up with Rlieumatism, and one
day I happened into Thompson's drug store, and a gentleman recom-
mended me to use Wilson' s Lightning Remedy for Rheumatism. I
did so, and the first dose relieved me from pain, and after using three
bottles I was entirely cured, and have been well ever since.
