Having seen a communication cir culating In the newspapers throughout the country, to the effect that some malignant disease at this time prevails at the Fauquier White Sul phur Springs, and in the viclnitv, we think it proper and due to the proprietors of this watering place to state, that we reside at War rent on, dis tant about six miles; that we have practised at these springs for the last sixteen or eighteen ye rs, and within that whole period we do not remem ber that neighborhood to have been more perfectly healthy ana exempt from disease of every kind than at the present time The report referred to must have originated in a malignant design to Injure the proprietors.

It ha* without the ordinary appliance used for such purposes, won its way, and been Heartily welcomed most of the cities and towns in the United States, the Canadas, and the West India Islands. Nor is this result surprising when it is remembered that its popularity is based upon its merits, solely as established by actual tests That this preparation will actually Restore gray Hair to its Natural Color, produce a luxuriant growth npon the heads of the bald, prevent the hair from foiling off, and when used as a tonic ar ticle, produce a continual flow of the natural fluid and thus render the hair soft, glossy and wav,, destroy diseases of the scalp, and expel dandruff the certlflc&tes of distinguished gentlemen and ladies in every part of the country who have tried it, and therefore speak what they know, most ful ly attest. That by a proper use of this Restorative the hair can be mad< to attain and retain its natu ral color to almo.-1 any age alotted to humanity, Oy removing the cause of disease from the scalp ao matter how long standing- the concurrent tes timonials of the press and the certificates of nu merous respectable individuals of both sexes, to the use of tnls curative, as well as of the recom mendations of editors and certificates before ailu ded to, can be had of all agents.

THB BED COTTON TJMBBELLA The other day u I vu walking up Wash ington street, my attention was drawn toward an object which eeemed to reoeive considerable notice from the passers by, and especially from the boys, of whom a large oompany were fol lowing in close pursuit. Looking more narrowly, I discovered that it Wfcs a man with a large red cotton umbrella boisted above his bead. He presented an ap pearance so strange tbat I did not at all wondet at the vociferous greeting of the boys?"Say. old feller, what'll you take for your umberil?" "Look here, stranger, what do you eall that ere?" "Do they raise them things down East, where you eome from?" I too* surprised, however, when in the bear er of the umbrella I reoognised my old friend Jones. "Why, in the name of all that's wonderful/' saidT, as soon as I got within hailing distance "do you carry about such a thing as that?'* "It i* rather odd looking," answered Jones, meditatively, "you are right, there." "Then why do you carry it?" I asked, im patiently. "Do you thiak," said he, "that anybody would be tempted to steal it?" "Steal it! Aot the least danger of that; but why don't you answer my question7n "Because. in order to do it. I mast give you a leaf from my experience. I think I will, on the whole. It will relieve me to nnburthen my sorrows. You will stop md when you ret tired?" "Certainly! Prooeed.'' "From early boyhood," resumed Jones, mu singly, "I was ambitous to own an umbrella. Watches, breastpins and ring^, such as boys ii: general ara desirous of posseraing I cared noth ing about. But I was determined not to have one until I could get a good one. At length when I was sixteen, the desire of my heart was fulfilled. I became the owner of a silk um brella. How ardently I longed for rain, that I might hare an opportunity to display it. One Wednesday evening there was a Lyceum lecture to which I was engaged to escort a young lady?a cousin of mine. To my great delight, as the hour approached it began to rain a little, but not enough to prevent our going. I walked to the hall <ioor with a happy heart, carefully shielding my cousin from the rain with my umbrella. Iu the pride of my heart I could not help asking her how she liked my umbrella, bu' n.y ardor was somewhat checked by her indifferent reply? "Very well; what did you give for it ?" "I was about to carry it into the lecture room but the door tender told me this was not al lowed. I accordingly hi 1 it behind the d"or, in what I imagined a safe place. There was but one other with it?a faded cotton umbrella, which, in its palmiest days, now gone by, migut have oo9t fifty cents. "Though under some apprehension, I man aged to sit quiatly through the lecture. At the close I darted ont in search of my treasure. Alas! I was too late. Mine was gone, atid the faded one left! Picture my consternation, my dismay. But I was forced to put up with the lots or rather exchange, aud, horror ??t hor rors! escort my cousin home, as it was still lainiug, under the odiou> faded cottou. "Thus was my first boyish dream rudely broken in upon. I need uo%say that I never set my eyos upon my umbreu* again. As f r the one 1 had got in exohange, I hated thi sight of it, for it l acalled the memory of my low. I took the earliest oppotuiiity to lend it, and it was never brought back again. "Iu process of time 1 got another umbrella Ii resembled as nearly as possible the first one I possessed. To make sure that it wjuld not be taken, I had inscribed upon it in large bold Utters 'Stolen from John Jones. Jr.* "Walking out with it, one day, I suddenly felt a heavy hand upon my shoulder, and turn ing round, faoed a poli^man. " 'Ah ha! my fine fellow, uoyou carry around stolen property, do you?' " ?Ira mine, sir,' said I, trembling. 14 *0, ves, no doubt. As I am bonnd for the Watch House, I'll trouble you to go with me and hold the umbrella over my heud.' "I was forced to go. The next day it was easily proved that I was the bona fid? owner, but the property had disappeared in some un accountable manner. "After I had somewhat recovered the shook produced by this loss, I procured another, though of not so good a quality as the two pre ceding. This one I keep for some time ; but one day a lady who hatf made a short call at our house, being overtaken by a (bower, and yet anxious to return, asked me to lend it to her. Could I rofuse? "As it was not returned the next day, I went the day after to inquire alter it. It was boaglt for in vain. Suddenly reflection came to the lady's aid, and she exclaimed? "'I have it. James returned to boarding eohool yesterday, and as likely as not he took your umbrella with him by mistake. When he comcs buck at vacation you shall have it ' " 'How long will he be gone?' i enquired. * " 'Six months.' "My heart sank within me. In six months it might get broken or lost. At all events it would be no longer new. I (elt a presentiment that I never should see it again, and I never did. "I began to be discouraged. However, I puri-hatcd an umbrella next day, and tu> I had no doubt that I should lo?e it, I bought it for fifty ccnts. It was more useful than ornamen tal, oortainly. "A week afterwards, it rained, and I looked around for it, but it was no where to be fouud. I asked my wife (I was a married man now.)? ' you seen an umbrella in the entry, lately?' ' 'Nothing bnt a eheap cotton one, that I knew could not be yours, so I gave it to Bridget. " I sighed, and departed to the umbrella ihop to purohase another. This time I pur chased a good one. Three days afterwards a friend borrowed it without leave. The next I tieardofhim ho had sailed for Europe aud carried it with bim. "You see, my dear friend, from this brief narration, to what miseries'! have been subject ed on account of umbrellas. Were I to give a full and faithful detail of all my losses, it rould fi 1 a volume. But I will not weary you my longer. During the last fifteen years I lave purchased one hundred and fifty ambrel as. Where they are now I don't know, scattered all over the globe, I have no doubt. "At length I have resorted to this expedient, This umbrella I have had made of red cotton, ixpreetly for me. Yon don; t think," he added nth a faint smile, " the v will take this, do you'' I shook my head and my friend departed, eaving me to muse on his unhappy fate. My aeditauons were brought to an end by hear ng a shout of derision. I turned arouud ar.d liscovered that a <*ust of wind had turned the td cotton umbrella inside out,and injured it ?evond repair. Foor Jones! I have not seen him since I hall call to-morrow at the umbrella merchant's ound the corner. 1 shall be sure to bear of im there.
