THE SCHOOLMASTER'S PROMISE.
"Boys," said an old schoohnnslor
smiling, ono day, "1 am about to
bargain with you for good conduct.
1 desire that you will behave your
selves with dpcorumfor otioweek.niid
I will promise to show you nciniosi
ty what no man ever saw, and,
having shewn it to you. w hat no
man will ever see again." An
anxious week followed n week of
curiosity, bewilderment, hope, and
pleasure in embryo. Out of the
school it was nil 'the talk "What
could it be?" Another and another
day, until at labt Saturda- downed
upon our gladdened young hearts.
Nine o'clock camu; every urchin
was at his post; books and slates all
in readiness ; every task f ully com
mitted to memory. Altogether a
charming state of affairs. "'Tinkle,
tinkle 1" sounded the bell that bell
had n voice as well as a tongue. Sir.
Birchcm entered, seated himself,
then raised the lid of his desk and
drew the wonderful thing forth ad
justed his ominous-looking specta
cles astraddle his nasal 'projection,
and piocccdcd to the solemn cere
mony, saying, "The hour has at
length arrived. Behold in my up
raised finger a single filbert. In
this filbert is a kernel;" ceremo
niously breaking the shell and ex
posing the tiny thing to view, he
continued, "This, no man ever
saw;" then opening his capacious
jaws he thrust in the mysterious
kernel, crushed and swallowed it!
"Boys!" exclaimed he, with great
emphasis, "boys, you will never
I shall never no man will ever sec
that kernel again ! To your lessons,
ynu rascals, every dog of you!"
A NEW USE FOR TRADE DOLLARS.
A new use has been found for the
much-abused trade dollar by an
enterprising jeweller of Maiden lane.
lie takes the despised coin and
makes it up into such shapes as he
can without destroying its identity.
"It is the Bachmau idea," said he
to a reporter. "Some of tho designs
are copyrighted, just as a publisher
would copyright a book, to keep the
sharks and guerillas of the trade
from stealing them. Here is one,"
said he, producing what appeared
to be a, new specimen of the coin,
"designed for a pocket piece. The
piece is split and hollowed out so
that a picture can lie placed in it.
The pieces fit together so perfectly
that no one would ever suspect the
use to which it has been adapted.
Here is a match-box made of four of
the dollars. You see-the coins, al
though slit so that both surfaces
show on the face of the design, arc
so bent and worked into shape that
their outlines arc undisturbed. No
thing else enters into the composi
tion of the box but the hinge."
Another cuiiosity shown was a
cigarette case made of coins of
various denominations, dimes, quar
ters, half dollars and trade dollars,
welded on to a silver base of alliga
tor-skin design, and so oxidized that
the coins seemed a century old.
"Is there no law against putting
the coin to "such use?" inquired
"You can do as you please with
United States money if you do not
attempt to counterfeit it or try to
pass it after you have mutilated or
otherwise tinkered with it. Speak
ing of counterfeiting reminds me of
the experience of a friend in the
same line. He conceived the idea
of making a eigaiettc case out of
gold'and enamel to resemble a roll
of bills. He carried out the idea,
and succeeded so well that the
Secret Service officers got after him
and ho made only one specimen. It
was a beauty, however, and repre
sented a roll of 8.50 bills. The de
sign was perfect. N"ew York Mail
The following advertisement re

A young widow in erecting a

THE JAPANESE 10 1
Tho chief object of interest to the
traveler in Yczo, the island depend
ency of Japan, is the lcmnaut of tho
Aino race, tho aborigines of Yczo,
and not improbably of the whole of
Japan, peaceable savages, who livo
on tho coasts and in the interior by
fishing and limiting, and stand in the
same l elation to their Japanese sub
jugators as tho ird Indians to the
Americans. A rough census of the
Ainos, made in 1873, gives their
number 12,281, and they arc be
lieved to be decreasing in numbers.
The "hairy Ainos," as these savages
have been called, arc stupid, gentle,
good-natured and submissive. They
,aic a wholly distinct race from the
Japanese. In complexion they rc
Bomblc the people of Spain and
Southern Italy. The hair is jet
black, very soft, and on the scalp
forms thick, pendant masses, occa
sionally wavy, but never showing
any tendency to cuil. The beard,
mustache and eyebrows arc very
thick and full, and there is frequently
a heavy giowth of stiff hair on the
chest and limbs. Their language is
a .very simple one. They have no
written charactcis, no literature, no
history, very few traditions, and
have left no impression on the land
from which they have been drivcu.

A SKILFUL 8URGI0AL OPERATION.
The American Ambn stutor nt Vienna,
Mr. Knsson, has lately foi uiudcd to Ids
Government nit IntcrrMlng account of a
remarkable Mimical operation lnlelv
performed by i'iofesot lllllioth, of
Vienna, which, wonderful to tell, con
stated in the removal of n portion
of tho human stomach, Involving
nearly onclhlrd of tho organ anil.
Mrnugo to cay, Ilia patient recovered
the only iuceMul operation of the
kind ever performed. The disease for
which this operation was performed
was caucerof tliu htouiach, attended with
the following svinplnuis: The appetite
l quite poor. There is n peculiar fades,
crumble distress In the stomach, a feel,
lug thai has been described its it faint
"all gone" sensation; a sticky slimo col.
lects about the teeth, especially in the
morning, accompanied by an unpleasant
taste. Food fulls to Bittis'ly thin peculiar
faint (sensation; but, on tltocontrnry.it
appears to aggravate tho feollng. The
ejes aro sunken, tinged witltyullow; tho
hands and feet become cold and sticky
n cold perspiration. The sufferers feel
tired all the tlniu, and sleep does not
eeui to give rest. After a time the pa.
tlent becomes nervous and Irritable,
gloomy, his mind illicit with evil fore
bodings. When rising suddenly front
a recumbent position ilierc Is n dizziness,
n whistling sensation, and he is obliged
to grasp something firm to keep from
falling. The bowels costive, the skin
dry and hot nt times; tho blood becom
ing thick mid stagnant, and docs not
circulate properly. After .1 time tho
patient spits up food soon after eating,
sometimes In a sour and fermented con
dition, sometimes sweetish to the taste.
Oftentimes thero is a palpitation of the
heart, and the patient fears he may have
heart dlsea'sc. Towards the last tho
patient is unable to retain any food
whatever, ns 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 nnd ninety-nine cases out of a
thousand have no cancer, but simply
dyspepsia, a disease easily removed if
treated in u proper manner. Tho safest
and best remedy for the disease is

Dear Sir, I find the sale of Scigcl's

as a "God-send to dyspeptic people." I

Dear Sir, I write to inform you that
I have derived great benefit from
"Scigcl's Syrup." For some years I have
suffered from liver complaint, with its
many and varied concomitant evils, so
that my life was a peipetual miseiy.
Twelve months ago I was induced to tfy
Scigcl's Syrup, and although lather
sceptical, having tried so many reputed
infallible remedies, I determined to gic
it at least a fair trial. In two or tlirec
days I felt considerably better, and now
nt the end of twelve months (having
continued taking it) I am glad to say
that I am a different being altogether.
It is fe.iid of certain pens that they "come
as a boon and a blessing to men" and I
have no reason to doubt tho truthfulness
of the statement. 1 can truly say, how
ever, that Seigel's Syrup has come as a
"boon nnd a blessing" to me. I bavo re
commended it to several fellow-sufferers
from this distressing complaint, and
their testimony is quite in accoidancc
with my own. Gratitude for the benefit
I have derived from the excellent pro.
paration, prompts mo to furnish you
with this unsolicited testimonial,
lam dear Sir,
Yours ever gratefully,
