MONDAY, FEU 1G, 188ft.
Editoii Bolixtin : Tlio papers
talk about hard times. Planters ami
business people oomplniti of the
ftatnc tiling. And It Is a fact, the
tlme9 Rro hard. Not absolutely so,
.but in comparison with the past.
But if there be consolation in the
knowledge that wc arc not alone in
adversity, wc can take comfort from
the assurance that the world at large
is now undergoiug a general depres
sion. "Vc certainly should feel
grateful that our condition is not so
bad, by a long chalk, as that of
many other countries. Besides, we
should not forget that for several
years past we have browsed on
clover, and if a season of scarcity
has now overtaken us it was preceded
by one of plenty.
Wo cannot deny that the time of
plenty produced the same effect here
as the same cause usually produces
in other countries extravagance.
Yes, it is a fact, we became extra
vagant perhaps wasteful. What
came easy want easy. That is not
all : many of us, with big hopes
which do not now appear probable
of realization, hypothecated the
future. We were bound to have
high-priced lands, splendid houses,
prancing horses, spangling equipage,
and a half dozen servants j and we
paid very high for our "whistle"
too high, much too high. We did
not think so at the time, but we
know it now. We have just found
it out. The "future" has come up
on us, and wo are at our wits' ends
to keep pace with the demands of
, Well, what are wo to do? The
papers say, practise economy. Easy
to say, but not so easy to do. When
extravagance becomes so .ingrained
into every day life as to become a
part of our nature it is hard to over
come. Aud yet this seems about
the only sensible and proper thing
to do. After all, the practice of
economy requires less exertion than
raising the wind to meet the de
mands of extravagance. Then, to
be effectual, economy must embrace
the little matters along with the
great. Those among us who have
big houses must keep them, I sup
pose ; that is, if they can. I tneauj
there is no economy in cutting off a
piece to reduce the size. But the
expense of maintaining that showy
"turnout" might bo dispensed -with
without injury to your health and
with mauifest benefit to your pocket.'
Then, don't you think a little cur
tailing in the matter of carriage hire
might be elfcctcd? If, instead of
handing over twenty-five cents to
the hack driver when you have a
block or two to go, you relied upon
your natural locomotive appendages
for the performance of the service,
you might not only retain the twenty
five cents in your own possession,
but at the same time effect a re
duction in the doctor's- bill. This
would be double economy, at one
stroke. How about the nobblers
and cocktails? This is a terrible
cause of waste. Only a few days
ago I heard an employer of labor
from the country grumbling about
high wages, after which he went
into a saloon and dissipated ,in
"knock-mc-down" as much as would
support a dozen workmen a whole
week. His pals thought him a fine
jovial fellow, I reckoned him a
mean, miserable crawler. Can't we
cut down a little, too, on the "frag
rant weed?" Just think how much
precious coin disappears in smoke
every week I Cigars arc cheap, but
tobacco is cheaper, and considerable
saving can be made by burning Arab
and substituting "Dandy" for Ma
nilas and Havanas, until times pick
up a bit.
I don't vrish people to gettho idea
from the foregoing that we men folks
have a monopoly of extravagance,
and that we, therefore, arc the only
ones who should turn over the new
leaf of economy. Not a bit of it
The gentle creatures whose sex ex
empts them from the turmoil of
money-making are not all aud always
no careful of the shining metal as
prudent forethought would dictate.
I am hard-hearted enough to think
that some of them might begin by
reducing the number of cooks,
stewards, and laundrymen. It m&v
M1 111 llll. ,'l II
be cruel of mo, hut rcnlly I cannot
believe that a Utile cooking, sweep
ing, and washlug would very materi
ally injure their health or very
seriously do) met from their respect
ability. A few soulless prudes nnd
some brainless dudes might cjaculato
nn expression of horror, but sensi
ble people would applaud. Then,
too, perhaps a trilling curtailment of
lnce and feathers might not be en
tircly out of place, considering the
hnidncssof the times. It is too
much to suggest that ico-crcam Is a
luxury which might be temporarily
suspended, awaiting a revival in the
monej' market. But to save my wig
being pulled I had better stop short.
Now, Mr. Editor, I have no ob
jection to people having all the
luxuries nnd comforts in the world,
provided they can afford them ; but
if they cannot afford them, that
is, have not the spare cash to pay
for them, they should go without
them. 1 cannot rid myself of the
conviction that many of us arc living
beyond our means, and if wo would
escape the stigma of having "cut a
big shine" at the expense of others,
wo cannot safely delay the practice
of rigid economy a single day longer.
An Old Gnujini.Kii.
We should come to our studies
with a clear unprejudiced mind,
and with a resolution to persevere
until wc fully understand our author
to read him, in short, with can
dor and industry. It is indispen
sable that wo should strive to dis
cover the truth or beauty of a book
rather than its errors. W should
begin with a trusting rather than
with a carping spirit. The faults
generally float upon the surface,
and may easily, be discovered. But
the truths lie deeper, and must be
sought for. The latter will strength
en and fertilize the mind of the
reader. The discovery of the
former will merely feed his self
conceit. Debate and theorise as we may,
we must perceive that events and
circumstances have a persistent
way of regulating tho course of
the world, and that the opposite
influences of tho heart and the'head
will go on while man has a head to
think and a heart to feel.
There is nothing innocent or good
that dies and is forgotten ; let us
hold to that faith or none. An
infant, a prattling child, dying in
the cradle, will live again in the
better thoughts of those who loved
it, and play its part, through them,
in the redeeming actions of the
world, though its body be burned to
ashes or drowned in tho depths of
If you have good health you have
nine-tenths of all the Lord has ever
given to any man.

A SKILFUL SURGICAL OPERATION.
Ilio American Ambassador at Vienna,
Sir. Knsson, ha lately forwarded to Ids
Government on Interesting account of u
remarkable Mirclcal operation lately
performed by Professor Billroth, of
Vienna, which, wonderful to tell, con.
slstcd In tho removal of a portion
of the human stomach, Involving
nearly nncthlid of tho organ and,
straugu to say, tho patient recovered
the only smccssful operation of tho
kind ever performed. The disease for
which this operation wns performed
was eancerof the stomach, attended with
thef allowing symptoms: The oppotlto
Is quite poor. There is n peculiar Indus,
crlbiiblo distress In tho stouvich, a feel.
lug that has been described as a faint
"net gone" solvation; n tUcky sllinc col.
lects about tho' teuth, especially In tho
morning, accompunled by an unpleasant
lasie. r oou laus 10 sausiy tins peculiar
faint sensation; but, on the contrary, it
appears to aggravate the feeling. Tliu
eyes are sunken, tinged with yellow; tho
hands and feet become cold and Btlckv
a cold perspiration. The suflcrcrs feel
tired all the time, nnd sleep does not
seem to give rest. After a time the pa.
ticnt becomes nervous and irritable,
gloomy, his mind II Ilea with evil fore
bodlugs. When rising suddenly from
a recumbent position tbeicls a dizziness,
a whistling sensation, and he is obliged
to giasp something firm to keep from
falling. The bowels costive, the skin
dry and hot at times; tho blood becom.
lug thick aud stagnant, and docs nol
circulate properly. After a timu the,
patient spits up food soon after eating,
sometimes in a sour and fermented con
dition, sometimes sweetish to the tasto.
Oftentimes there Is a palpitation of the
heart, and tho patient fears he may have
heart disease. Towards the last tho
patient is unable to retain any food
whatever, as the opening in the intes.
tines becomes closed, or nearly so. Al.
though this disease is indeed alarming,
sufferers with the above named symp
toms should not feel 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. Tho safest
and best remedy for the dlscaso is
Seigcl's Curative Syrup, a vegetable pre
paration sold by all chemists and medi
cine vendors throughout the world, and
by the proprietors, A. J. White (Limit

Sir, It gives me great pleasure to in

from Selgel's Syrup. I have been troub

a few doses of the syrup, I found relief,

September 8th, 1SS3.
Dear Sir, I find the sale of Scigel's
Syrup steadily increasing. All who hac
tried it speak very highly of its incdi.
cinal virtues: one customer describes it
as a "God-send to dyspeptic people." I
always recommend it with commence.

To Mr. A. J. White,
Scigel's Operating Pills are tho best
family physic thut has ever been dis
covered. They cleanse the bowels from
all Irritating substances, and leave them
in a healthy condition. Tlioy cure cos

Oct. 2L 1882.
Dear Sir, I write to inform you that
I have derived treat beneilt from
"Scigel's Sy i up." For sonje years I have
suffered 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
Scigel's Syrup, and although rather
sceptical, having tried so many reputed
infallible remedies, I determined to give
it nt least a fair trial. In two or three
days I felt consideiably better, and now
at the end of twelve months (having
continued taking it) I am glad to hay
that I am a diflerent being altogether,
ft is said of certain pens that they "come
as a boon and n blessing to men" and I
liavo no reason to doubt flio truthfulness
of the statement. 1 can truly sa-, how
ever, that Scigel's Syrup has come ns a
"boon and a blessing" to me. I have re
commended it to several fcllow-suffcrers
from this distressing complaint, and
their testimony is quite in accordance
with my own. Gratitude for the benefit
I havo derived from tho excellent pre
paration, prompts mo to furnish you
with this unsolicited testimonial.
I am dear Sir,
Yours ever gratefully,

My Dear Sir, Your Syrup and Pills
aro still very popular with mj' customers,
many saying they nro the best family
Tho other day a customer came for
two bottles of Syrup and said "Mother
Seigcl" had saved tho life of his wife,
and ho added, "one of these bottles I
am sending fifteen miles away to a friend
who Is very ill. I have much futli in it."
Tho sale keeps up wonderfully, In fact,
one would fancy almost that the people
were beginning to breakfast, dine, nnd
sup on, Mother Scigel's Syrup, the de
mand Is so constant nnd tho satisfaction
