A shipwreck is a fright ful experience, .to hear the wind whistle, the timber creak and crash, the cordage strain, the sailors swear and the woman scream, tremble and run hither and thither like maniacs, is enough to appal the bravest heart. Yet with all its terrors, death by shipwreck is not half so terrible as the slow and insidious course of disease, which for the latter years of the stricken one's life, makes existence a misery, not only to the victim but to all around him. With such terrible facts staring us in the face, how careful we should be to preserve that blessing of providence health and strength. .N ote should be taken of the first signs of disease.

There are hundreds of such ...
