Great Excitement in Wales
about a Marvellous Cure.
laving Six Years Without
Going to Bed.
Mr. Editor : While spending a few
days at the pleasant seaside town of
Aberystwith, Cardiganshire, Wales, I
heard related what seemed to me either
a fabulous story or a marvellous cure.
The story was that a poor sufferer who
had not been able to lie down in bed for
siv long ears, elveu up to die by all the
Doctors, had been speedily cured by
some Patent Medicine. It was related
with the more implicit confidence from
the circumstance, as was said, that the
Vicar of Llunrystyd was familiar with
the facts, and could vouch for the truth
of the report.
Having a little cuiiosity to know how
such stories grow in tra'selling, I took
the liberty while at the village of Llan
rystyd to call upon the Vicar, the Rev,
T. Evans, and to enquire about this
wonderful cure. Though a total stran
ger to him, both he and his wife most
graciously entertained me in a half
hour's conversation, principally touching
the case of Mr. Pugh, in which they
teemed to take a deep and sympathetic
interest, having been familiar with his
bulienngs. and now rejoiced in what
hetmed to them a most remarkable cure.
The Vicar remarked that he presumed
his name had been connected with tlio
report irom his having mentioned the
case to Mr. John Thomas, a chemist of
Llanon. He baid Mr. Pugh was foimer
Jy a residentof their parish, but wainow
living in tho parisk of Llanddeinol.
He strongly vouched Mr. Wm. Pugh'a
character as a lespectable farmer and
worthy of credit. I left the venerable
Vicui with a livelier sense of the happy
relation of a pastor and people, feeling
that he was one who truly sympathised
with all who arc utllicted in mind, body,
On my return to Aberystwith, I was
impressed with a desire to see Mr. Pugh,
whose reputation stood so high. Ills
farm is called Paucorn-Mawr, signifying
"above the dingle," situated near the
summit of a smooth lound hill, over,
looking a beautiful valley in which is
situated the lovely ivymautlcd Church
of Llanddeinol. I found Mr. Pugh,
apparently about 40 years old, of medium
height, rather slight, with a pleasant and
intelligent face. I told him I had heard
of his great affliction and of his remark,
able and almost miraculous relief, and
that I had come to learn from his own
lips, what there was of truth in tho re
31 r. Pugh remarked that his neigh,
liors had taken u kindly and symp
athetic Interest In his case for many
years, but of lute their interest had been
greatly awakened by a happy change in
his condition. What you leport as hav.
ing heard abroad, said he, is .substant
ially true, with one exception. I never
unuerstoou that my ease was ever given
up as hopeless by any Physician, I
havo been treated by several Doctors
hereabouts, as good us any In Wales, but
unfortunately no prescription of theirs
ever biought the desired relief.
Fifteen years ago, ho said, I first be.
came conscious of a sour and deranged
stomach and loss of appetite, which tho
Doctors told me was Dyspepsia. What
food I could hold in my stomach seem
ed to do me no good and was often
thrown up w ith painful retchings. This
was followed after a time with a hoarse
ness and a raw soreness of tho throat
which tho Doctors called bronchitis,
and I was trcuted for that, but with
little success. Then came shortness of
breath and a sense of sullocation, espc
dally nights, with clammy sweat, and I
would have to get out of bed and some
limes open a door or window in winter
weather to fill my lungs with the told
About six years ago I became so bad
that I could not sleep in bed, but had to
take my unquiet rest and dreamy sleep
sitting in an aunchalr. My affliction
seemed to bo working downward Into
my bowels as well aa upwards into my
lungs and throat. In tho violent cough,
ing spasms which grew more frequent,
my abdomen would expand and collapse
and at times it would seem that 1 should
sullocate. All this time I was reduced
in strength bo that I could perform no
hard labor and my spirits wcro conse

MONDAY, AUGUST 9, 188G.
If you leave with me Naples by
carriage (although wc might go by
steam train narrow gauge lailroad),
we immediately go through n tun
nel three-quarters of a mile long,
cut through a mountain 800 feet
high. This tunnel is driven through
a volcanic rock called tufa, which is
about as hard as tho Indinnna "free
Btone" found in the vicinity of the
bluffs of White Hivcr near Waver
ley. When wa9 this tunnel (which
foims the highway for tho whole
country west of Naples) cut through
the mountain of l'osilippo? The
answer to this inquiiy will bo inter
esting to all engineers, and is woithy
a place in your railroad "column,"
which keeps us posted up in the
railway tialllc and in the diamond
pancd, nickle-plnted "Union Depot."
This tunnel of l'osilippo, as it now
exists, was cut through only twenty
seven years before Christ, and there
fore, has the juvenile age of 1,913
years, or is 1,519 years older than
the discovery of America by Chris
topher Columbus. Augustus Ciesar's
great Minister of Public Works,
Marcus Agrippa, made the present
tunnel or he may have enlarged it
from a smaller one that answered
the commcicial communication and
necessities of tho days before tho
empire. This tunnel is to-dny, as I
said, the great highway to the heait
of Naples, as it has been for more
than 1,900 years. The great Appian
way ran to the Capua, within thiity
miles of Puteoli, thence this mag
nificent Roman highroad, under the
name of the Consular way, was
continued to Futcoli, and then the
Consular way pushed on through
Neapolis (Naples), Heiculaneum,
Pompeii, Staple, Nuccra, Sarenum,
Paestum down to Rueuim. This
tunnel of l'osilippo was formeily
called the grotto or tunnel of l'ute
oli. The ancients worked in this
manner, viz. : they began their per
forations at each end, and also from
above in two places equidistant
from the termini of the tunnel. The
guide books, both Murray and
Saedekar, will tell you the pel fora
tions or shafts from above were
made by Alfonso I. in the fifteenth
century, which is altogether wrong.
No less than four tunnels of Roman
construction existed in the vicinity
of Naples, and the', all of them,
even the latest, rediscovered and
opened in 1842, have shafts from
The Romans were great road, tun
nel and bridge builders, and we
have never yet given their engineers
half the credit which we should for
their great science and skill. No
where, not even in the City of
Rome, or on the Roman Campagna,
are there so many evidences of their
engineering skill as are to be found
in the vicinity of Naples. A young
architect from Loudon, with whom I
have lecently gone over these classic
scenes, has been perfectly astonished
at the engineeiing abilities displayed
by the Romans in their public and
private woiks near Naples. I have
been glad to see that at the recent
meeting of the British Association of
Science, held at Abeidcen, Scotland,
B. Baker, an eminent British 'civil
engineer, read a paper recalling
certain engineering feats of the an
cients. As there are many engineers
and others who arc readers of the
"Journal," I think it will interest
them for me to quote one portion of
Mr. Baker's paper. Mr. Baker
says : "I hayo no doubt that as able
and enterprising engineers existed
prior to the age of steam and steel
as now exist, and their work was as
beneficial to mankind, though differ
ent in direction. In the important
matter of water supply to towns,
Indeed, I dpubt whether, having
reference to facility of execution,
even greater works were not done
2,000 years ago than now. Heio-
dotus speaks of a tunnel eight feet
square and nearly a mile long
driven through a mountain in order
to supply the city of Saraos with
water, and his statement, though
long doubted, was veufled in 1882,
through the abbot of a neighboring
cloister accidentally unearthing some
stone slabs. The German Archaeo
logical Society sent out Einst Fab
riciousto make a complete survey
of the work, and the record reads
like that of a modern engineeiing
undertaking. Thus from a covered
reservoir in the hills proceeded an
arched conduit about 1,000 yards
long, partly driven as a tunnel and
partly executed on the 'cut and
cover' system adopted on the Lon
don underground railway. The
tunnel proper, more thrfp 1,1Q0
yards in length, was hewn by ham
mer ami chisel through the .solid
limestone rock. It was driven fiom
tho two ends like tho great Alpine
tunnels, without intermediate shafts,
and the engineers of 2,400 years
ago might well bo congratulated for
getting only some dosen feet out of
JpveJ and Jittle more qiit of line,
From the lower end of tho branches
tunnels wore constructed to supply
tho city mains and fountains, and
tho explorers found ventilating
shafts and -side entrances, earthen
ware socket pipes, with cement
joints, and other inteicsting details
connected with tho water supply of

Near the village of Zillingdorf, in
Lower Austria, lives Maria Haas, an in
telligent and industrious woman, whoso
story of physical suflering and final re
lief, as related by herself, la of interest
to English women. "I was employed,"
she says, " in tho work of a large farm
house. Ovcr-work brought on Blck
hendacbe. followed by a deathly faint
ing and sickness of tho stomach, until I
wa unable to retain cither food or
drink. I was cnnpclled to take to my
bed for several weeks. Getting a little
belter from rest and quiet, I souht t
do some work, but was soon talan with
n pain in my side, which in a little
w hilc seemed to spread over my whole
body, and throbbed in my every limb.
Tills was followed by n cough and
shoitncss of breath, until finally I could
not sew, and I took to my bed for the
second, and, as I thought, for the last
time. My friends told i u that my time
had nearly come, and that I could not
live longer than when tho tices put on
their green nco more. Then I happen
ed to get one of the Seigel pamphlets.
I read it, and my dear mother bought
me a bottle of beigel's Syrup, which 1
took exnctly nccorulng to directions,
and I had uot taken the whole of it be
foic I felt a great change for the belter.
My lust illness began June ,1882, and
continued to August 0th, when I began
to take the Syrup. Very soon I could
do a little light woik. The cough left
me, and I was no more troubled in
b eatliing. Now I am perfectly cured.
And oh, how happy I am ! I cannot cx
piess gratitude enough for Seigel's
Syrup. Now I must tell you tint the
doclois in our district distributed hand
bills cautioning people against tho
medicine, telling them it would dothem
no good, and many were thereby influ
enced io destroy the Seigel pamphlets;
but now, wherever one Is to be found, it
Is kept like a relic. The few preserved
are borrowed to read, and I have lent
mine' lor six miles around our district.
People have come eighteen miles to get
me to buy the medicine for them, know
ing that it cured me, and to bo sure to
get the right kind. I know a woman
who was looking like death, and who
told them there was no help for her,
that she had consulted several doctors,
but none could help her. I told her of
Seigel's Syrup, and wrote the name
down for her that she might make no
mistake. She took my advice and the
Syrup, and now she is in perfect health,
and the people around us are amazed.
The medicine has made such progress
in our neighborhood that-people say
they don't want the doctor any more,
but they take the Syrup. Sufferers from
trout who were confined to their bed and
could hardly move a finger, have been
cured by it. There is a girl in our dis
trict who caught a cold by going
through some water, and was in bed five
years with costiveness aud rheumatic
pains, and had to have an attendant to
watch by her. There was not a doctor
in tho surrounding districts to whom
her mother had not applied to relieve
her child, but every one crossed them
selves and said they could not help her.
Whenever the little bell rang which is
mug in our place when somebody is
dead, we thought surely it was for her,
but Seigel's Syrup and Pills saved her
life, and now she is as healthy as any.
body, goes to church, and can work
even in the fields. Everybody was as
tonished when they saw her out, know
ing how many years she had been in
bed. To day she adds her gratitude to
mine for God's mercies and Seigel's
Syrup. Mabia Haas."
