SATURDAY, FEH ii, 18S6.
DEPEW ON ENGLISH NOTABLES.
At the Sala dinner in Now York,
on Sntunlny evening, tho Hon. C. M.
Depew spoke of the popularity of
America with tho professional people
of other countries ami jocosely snid :
Like the Chinese, who come to
this country to hoard and not to
stay, the English lecturers carry
away all of our surplus and leave us
nothing but Ideas. J usl run your
minds over the list of those who linvc
visited us. There is Sergeant Ball
antinc, who brought with him jokes
so old that they fell within the penal
code, and curried home good stories
that have since convulsed the British
Empire. Then there was Herbert
Spencer, who came to us dyspeptic,
green, hungry, emacintcu (laugh
ter), and looking like Pickwick gone
to seed, and lectured us on over
work. Look at Matthew Arnold,
the apostle of sweetness and light,
who came to teach and was taught.
He was taught the ingenuity and
complexity of the Lyceum Bureau
system of conducting public enter
tainments, and doubtless that know
ledge was what hastened his depar
ture from our shores. It was in a
Western town that Matthew Arnold
was introduced to an audience some
thing in this style: "Ladies and
gentlemen, Next week we shall
have here those beautiful singers,
the Johnson sisters. To-night wo
will have the pleasure of hearing
Mr. Arnold, the great philosopher,
who has passed most of his life in
India, and who wrote that beautiful
production, the 'Light of Asia.' "
Now we have with us George
Augustus Sala, who is the best after
dinner speaker among the English
people, and who is equal to most of
our own after-dinner speakers. As
regards his lecture on 'Costumes,
Culture and Cookary,' I wish to
warn him most solemnly that the
peoplo of the United States will not
stand alliteration. Laughter.
This country has just been thrown
into a great moral, political and
religious revolution by 'Rum, lhcu
matism and rebellion.' " Great
laughter and applause. Mr. Depew
alluded to the statement that Mr.
Sala had written seven thousand edi
torial articles, and facetiously in
dicated the degree of independence
exercised by the average editorial
writer by citing the late Dean Rich
mond's instructions to the head
painter in the employ of the New
York' Central Railway, "which, by
the way," interpolated Mr. Depew,
with great gravity of countenance,
"is the best railway in the countr'."
After telling his head painter that
the greatest liberty of action would
be accorded the heads of every de
partment of the Central road so long
aa they bore the consequence, Mr.
Richmond said: "Now you can go
and paint your cars any color you
please, so long as you paint them
red." Mr. Depew closed his re
marks by an eloquent tribute to Mr.
Sala's ability and career, which
elicited enthusiastic applause.
The London correspondent of the
Boston Herald gives a humorous
account of the first appearance of
the noted London journalist, George
Augustus Sala, in the American lec
ture field. After picturing Mr. Sala's
approach to the lecture platform and
the manner in which he swept the
audience with his keen eyes, "which,
seen once, can never be forgotten,"
the writer thus quotes: "Ladies
and gentlemen When I arose this
morning I found I had not lost my
cockney accent, along with my fa
tiguo of ocean travel, and, to my
horror, knowing that I was to appear
before you this evening,' to tell you
a few things I've seen, I was in
great difficulty with my h's. I re
peated a sentence, and, until several
repetitions, I gave it iu this manner:
'The 'orn of the 'unter is 'card on
the 'ill.' But by noon, and by per
sistent wrestling with my vocal
powers, I am able to say this even-'
ing in purest, mo3t clear-cut Ameri
can fashion, 'the horn of tho hunter
is heard on the hill.' " Of course
there was a roar of laughter, added
tho correspondent, for tho clear
tones in which this sentence was
rung' out the second time must have
been heard to be appreciated.
Daniel Webster was not a financial
success. He was always in debt
and had no idea of the value of
money. On one occasion, having
already borrowed ten dollars of a
friend, he soon after asked for ten
more. "What did you do with tho
other?" said the gentleman, knowing
'Webster's shortcomings. "Wiry,
the boot-black couldn't make change
and I gave him the bill," replied tho
There are 30,000 acres of good
land in tho county of Essex, Eng
land, which arc tcnantlcss. The
reason is said to be that English
farmers are being educated abovo
their business and desert the farm
for tho city.
Great Britain is .the wealthiest
nation in the world ; France is second
and the Uqited States third.- Pacific

A true story, nearly as good as
that told about' the sentinel kept for
twenty years or more guarding a
spot in a German royal park where
was once a flower which attracted
the empress's attention, is now told
of St. James's Paik in London.
About 180-1, a military commission
sat for a day in n back building
abutting; on the Park. To give due
solerimity to the arrangement, a sen
tinel was put on duty at the door
from ten till four. The commission
did its work and disappeared. The
sentry came back next day and did
his guarding. Year by year passed,
to the number of about twenty, and
still day by day "Tommy Atkins,"
with his red coat and all the ac
coutcrments, paced up and down
his twenty steps, in spring rain and
summer drought and winter wind
and snow, faithful to his post. There
was nothing to guard, and he
guarded it. The other day only it
was remembered that he had been
forgotten, and the red tapo went
away from that spot to reappear
The Hudson Bay country may 3-ct
prove to be the salvation of Canada
in a commercial way. Observations
are being taken this winter on the
shores of Hudson Bay by an explor
ing party sent out by the Canadian
Government with the object of as
certaining for how long a period
during the summer the bay can be
utilized as an outlet to Europe for
Canadian products. It has been
discovered that the country is rich
in iron ore, galena, gold, silver and
copper. It is expected the expedi
tion will be fruitful of great results.

A SKILFUL SUROIOU OPERATION.
Tho American Ambassador nl Vienna,
.Mr. iCnusoii, has lately forwarded to his
Government an interesting account (if a
rrmnrknlilo surgical operation lutclv
performed by Piofcssor Billroth, rif
Vienna, which, wonderful to tell, con.
slslcd in the removal of a portion
of the human stomach, Involving
nearly onc-lhlid of the organ and.
strange to say, the patient recovered
the only siu-cessfiil operation of the
kind ever performed. Tho dlst-aBC for
which this operation was performed
was cancer of the stomach, attended with
tho following symptoms : Tho appetite
is quite poor. There is a peculiar hides,
crlbablo distress In tho stomach, a feel,
lug that has been described as a faint
'Wp-owe" sensation; a sticky slime col.
lccls about the teeth, cspecfiilly in the
morning, accompanied by an unpleasant
taste. Food falls to satls'fy this peculiar
faint scnation; but, on tliccontrary.it
appears to aggravate tho feeling. The
eyes arc sunken, tinged with yellow; tho
hands and feet become cold and sticky
a cold perspiration. Tito sufferers feci
tired nil the time, mid sleep docs not
seem to give rest. After n time the pa.
ticut becomes nervous and irritable,
gloomy, his mind filled with evil fore,
bodlugs. When rising suddenly from
a recumbent position tbcrcis a dizziness,
ix whistling sensation, and he Is obliged
to grasp something firm to keep f l om
falling. Tho bowels costive, tho skin
dry and hot at times; tho blood becom
ing thick and stngnant, and docs not
circulate piopcrly. After a time the
patient spits up iood soon after eating,
sometimes in n sour and fermented con.
dition, sometimes sweetish to tho tnsto.
.Oftentimes there is a palpitation of tho
heart, and tho patient fears he may have
heart disease. Towards the last the
patient is unablu to retain any food
whatever, as the opening in the inles.
tines becomes closed, or nearly so. Al.
though this disease is indeed nlnrmlug,
sufferers with the above named symp
toms should not feci nervous, for nine
hundred and ninety-nine cases out of a
thousand have no cancer, but simply
dyspepsia, a disease easily removed if
treated in a proper manner. The safest
and best remedy for the disease is
Scigcl's Curative Syrup, a vegetable pre
partition sold by all chemists and medi
cine vendors throughout the world, and
by the proprietors, A. J. White (Limit
ed), 17, Farringdou.road, London, E. C.
This Syrup strikes at tho very founda.
lion of the disease, and drives it, root
and branch, out of tho system.
St. Mary-strcet, Peterborough,
November, 29th, 18S1.
Sir, It gives mo great pleasure to in
form you of tho benefit I have received
from Scigcl's Syrup. 1 have been trotib
led for years with dyspepsia; but after
a few doses of the syrup, I found relief,
and after taking two bottles of it I feel
I am, Sir, youis truly,
Mr. A. J. White. William Brent.
September 8th, 188'J.
Dear Sir, I find the sale of Scigcl's
Syrup steadily increasing. All who have
tried it ppa1.' vnry highly of its medi.
cinal virtues: one customer describes it
as a "God-send to dyspeptic people." I
nlways recommend it with confidence.

To Mr. A. J. White,
Scigel's Operating Pills arc the best
family physic that has ever been dis
covered. They cleanse the bowels from
all irritating substances, and leave them
in a healthy condition. They cure Cos
tiveness. Spanish Town, Jamaica, West Indies,
Oct. 24, 1SS2.
Dear Sir, I write to inform yon that
I have derived jrreat benefit from
"Scigel's Syrup." For some years I have
suflercd from liver complaint, with its
many and varied concomitant evils, so
that my life was a perpetual misery.
Twelve months ago I was induced to try
Beigcl's' Syrup, and although rather
KjciHlcui, iiUYiiig iriuu bu many rvpuiuu
infallible remedies, I determined to give
it at least a fair trial. In two or three
days I felt considerably better, and now
at the end .of twelve months (having
continued taking it) I am glad to say
that I am a diflcreut being altogether.
It iB said of certain pens that they "come
as a boon and n blessing to men" and I
have no reason to doubt the truthfulness
of the statement. 1 can truly say, how
ever, that Scigel's Syrup has como as a
"boon and a blessing" to me. I have re
commended it to several fcllow-sufferers
from this distressing complaint, and
their testimony is quite in accordance
with my own. Gratitudo for the benefit
I have derived from tho excellent pre
paration, prompts mo to furnish you
witli this unsolicited testimonial.
I am dear Sir, '
Yours over gratefully,
(Signed) Curey B. Berry,
A.J. White, Esq. Baptist Missionary.
Preston, Sept. 21st, 1883.
My Dear Sir, Your Syrup and Pills
arc still very popular with my customers,
many saying they are the best family
The other day a customer came for
two bottles of Syrup and said "Mother
Sclgcl" had saved the life of his wife,
unu nc aaucu, -one or tnege uoiucs l
nm sending fifteen miles away to a friend
who is very ill. I have much fath in It."
The sale keeps up wonderfully, In fact,
one would fancy almost that the people
wero bcgluninc; to breakfast, dine, and
sup on Mother Scigel's Syrup, tho de
mand is so constant and the satisfaction
l am, ucar sir, yours iaiiiiiuuy,
(Signed) W. Bowker.
To A. J. White, Esq.,
HciiBlngham, Whitehaven, Oct. 10, 1832.
Mr. A, J. White Dear Sir, 1 was
for some time nfillctcd with piles, and
was advised to give Mother Scigel's
Byrup a trial, which I did. I am now
happy to state that it has restored me
to complete health. 1 remain, yours
