FAINTING AND EPILEPTIC FITS.
"I wish you would do something,"
said a physician to rue to-dny, "to
teach the people the diffetenco be
tween rt fainting fit and an epileptic
fit. You see a fainting fit Is pro
duced by the blood leaving the
head, and these other fits are just
the lcvcisu, and conic from the
blood rushing to tho head. It is
important to lcmcnibur this, because
il determines the method of treating
these aillieted people when no doc
tor is near and because every one
occasionally finds it his duty to go
to the help of some person in n lit,
without a moment for rcllcction, let
alone inquiry. If a pet son faints,
he ought to be laid down Hat on his
hack, for this will facilitate the re
turn of the blood to his head. In
deed, natme hns provided for this
fot a porbon who faints will fall
down and soon recover, if no one
interferes. On the other hand a
person with an epileptic or catalep
tic lit, indicated by convulsions and
frothing at the mouth, ought to bo
propped up, so as to facilitate tho
How of blood ft om the head to the
lower pai ts of the body, which may
be still fin thcr promoted by slapping
in the palms of his hands. JNbw 1
cannot account for it, but the fact
is that all ignoiant people, in an
emergency, levcrsc this tieatment.
A person who simply faints is caie
fully supported in a chair, and the
face is applied with cold applica
tions and fanned, the result that
the fainting is greatly prolonged.
On the other hand, a man who
drops in the street with epilepsy or
catalepsy is invariably laid flat on
his back, which in some cases is
enough to kill him." Chicago
"Do London doctors earn more
than Queen's counsel?" As a rule
they do not, but the incomes of the
tlucc leading lawyers arc about
equal, that is to say, at the rate of
!jGO,000 a year each. The largest
bum ever earned in one year by a
doctor was 100,000, made by Sir
Astley Cooper. The three men at
the head of tho medical profession
in England at the present day aie
Sir "William .Tanner, the Court
Physician, Sir William Gull, and
Sir Andrew Clark. Lately the last
named has obtained considerable
notoriety, lie was induced to visit
a very wealthy lady at Nice, and he
received tho unprecedented fee of
25,000. One-fifth of this amount
he tetained for remuneration for his
services, and the remainder ho di
vided between t o charitable insti
tutions connected with his profes-"
Speaking of fees there is a tale of
a i ich colonial gentleman living in
Kent who had the misfortune to take
a slight cold. Not satisfied with his
.ocal medical attendant he desired
o have Gull down from London in
onsultatjon. Gull happened to he
away and Sir "William Jenncr came
instead. He was duly paid his fee
of $870 for tho visit. Tho patient
feeling no better, then sent to Edin
burg to a leading doctor of that city,
who traveled tho -100 miles in order
to see him, and in ordinary course
received a guinea for every mile,
that is -100 guineas, orS2,100. Again
the patjent felt no better, and this
time Gidl was sinnmoncd and at
tended. "I suppose," suggested the local
practtioner, "you will pay Gull what
you paid Jenuor 75?"
"Nonsense," indignantly rotortrd
the sick gentleman ; "I am not go
ing to pay Gull less than I gave the
Scotchman," and he drew a check
for 62,100. Before he got rid
of hiu co)d )ie had paid 87,000 in
fees. London Lettor,
THE TELEPHONE OF 1664.
A quotation, not much known,
from the works of Robert Hooko,
published in 10G1, would seem to
show that the telephone is not such
a modern invention as it is gener
ally thought. Hooke says: "And
as gjassps have highly promoted our
seeing, bo 'tjs not jmnrobabjo but
that thero may bo found many
mechanical inventors to improve our
other senses, of heariug, smelling,
tasting and touching. 'Tis not im
possible to hear n whisper a furlong's
distance, it having been already
done, and perhaps tho nature of tho
thing would not make it more im
possible though that furlong should
1)0 ten times multiplied. And though
some famous authors 'have alllrmed
it impossible to hear through tho
thinnest plato qf Muscovy glass, yet
I know a way by which it is pasy
pnough to hear ono speak through a
wall a yard thick.
"It has not yot bpen thojoughly
examined how far octocousticoii'a
may be improved, nor what other
ways there may bo of quickening
our hearing, or convoying sound
thiough other bodies than tho air;
for that is not tho only medium, I
can assuro tho reader that I have,
by tho heli) of a distended wire, pro
pagated tho sound to very consider
able dibtanco in an instant, or with
ns seemingly quick a motion as that
of light, at least inepmparably
swifter than that which at the samo
time was propagated through tho
air ; and this not only In a btrnight
lino or direct, but in ono bended in
many angles." S. V. liullctin.

telligentaml Industrious woman, wliO!o
story of physical Buffering and final re
lief, as related by herself, is of interest
to English women. "I was employed,"
she says, " in tho work of a large farm

a pain In my vide, which in it little
while seemed to spread over my whole
body, and thiobbcd in my every limb.
Thli was followed by a cough and
shortness of breath, until Ihnilly"! could
not sew, nnd I took to my bed for the
second, nnd, ns I thought, for the last
time. My friends told -i o that my time
had ncaily come, and that I could not
live longer than when tho trees put on
their green nco more. Then 1 happen

is kept like a relic. The fow preserved
are borrowed to read, and I have lent
mine for six miles around our district.
People have come eighteen miles to get
mo to buy thu 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 Hicro was no help for her,
that Bhe had consulted several doctors,
but none could help her. I told her of
Selgel's Syrup, aim wrote thu name
down for her that she might make no
mistake. She took my advice and the
Syrup, and now Bhe is in perfect health,
nnd the people around us are amarcd.

in our neighborhood that people say
they don't want the doctor any more,

could hardly move a linger, have been
cured by it. There is a girl in our dis
tiict who caught a cold by going
through some water, nnd was in bed five
years with costiveness and 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 ciossed them
selves and said they could not help her.
Whenever the little bell rang which is

Great Excitement in Wales
about a Marvellous Curo.
Living; Six Years Without
Going to Bed.
Mrt. LDiTon: While spending a fow
dajs at the pleasant seaside, town of
Aburstwitli, Cardiganshire, Wales, I
heard re'lated whut S'emid to mo cither
a fabulous story or a mil vellous cure.
The story was thin a poor sufferer who
had not been able to Ho down iu bed for
sl long ears, given up to die by nit the
Doctor, hud bien speedily cured by
some Patent Medlrlnc. It was i elated
with the more implicit confidence from
the circumstance, ns was said, that the
Vicar of Llnnrystyil was familiar with
the fnct, and could vouch for the truth
Having a little cuiloslty to know how
such stories grow in trnolling, 1 took
tho. liberty while at tho village of Llan.
rystvd to call upon the Vicar, the Rev.
T. Evans, and to enquire about this
wonderful cure. Though a tolnl stran.
ger to him, both he nnd his wife most
graciously enteitalncd mo in a half
hour's conversation, principally touching
the case of Mr. Pimh. in which thev
seemed to take a deep and sympathetic
niieiosi, naving ueen lnmutiir wmi nts
sulleriugs, and now rejoiced In what
seemed to them a most remarkable cuie1.
The Vicar remmked that lie presumed
his namu had been connected with the
rcpoit f i om his liming mentioned the
case to Mr. John Thomns, a chemist of
Llanoti. He said Mr. Pugh was former
ly a resident of their parish, but' was now
living in tho parish of Llandilelnol.
He strongly ouchcd Mr. Win. Pugh's
character us a lespcctablo farmer and
worthy of credit. I left the venerable
Vicar with a livelier bense of tho happy
relation of n pastor and people, feeling
that he was one who Uuly sympathited
with all who arc afflicted in mind, body,
On my return to Aberjstwith, I was
Impressed w ith a deslie to see Afr. Pueh,

fnun is called Pancom.Mawr, signifying
"above the dingle," situated near the
summit of 'a smooth lound hill, over
looking a beautiful valley In which is
situated the loely ivy mantled Church
of Llanddcinol. I found Mr. Pugh,
apparently about 40 years old, of medium
height, rather slight, w ith u pleasant and
intelligent face. I told him 1 had heard
of his great affliction and of his remark,
able and almost miraculous lelief, and
that I had come to learn from his own
lips, what thcie was ot truth in there
Mr. Pugh remarked that his neigh,
bors hud taken kindly and symp

greatly awakened by a happy change in
his condition. What you leport as hav.
