To Tin: Editor or t;u: London
Times Sin: During the Inst ten
years I linvc been collecting mis
takes frequently made, from dicta
tions, essays, letters, etc., anil nftcr
having collected some seven hun
dred, and Hinted then with a few
special rules, 1 still find a dilllculty
in laying down an absolute law for
a certain number of words for want
of sonic I'ved authority in England,
such as the Academy in Franco.
"Rateable," for instance, is, I find,
the? popular spelling, but all the
dictionaries I lirvo consulted give
"ratable," though both forms have
existed side by side for more than
two centuries. "Debatable" and
"dcbateable" p'so both exist. I
find "debatable" in the Times of
Monday, Juno Mill, bearing out the
rule 1 iiad given that "Words end
ing in o uclore aulc mop tnc e wncn
not required to soften the pronun
ciation of the last consonant of the
word," as blaniablc, lovable, etc.,
but ' igciiblo, poaceab'c, etc.
At, the snslling "license" pre
dominates in several hundred col
lected quotations both as substan
tive and verb, though the popuh r
spelling is "license" for the verb
and "licence" for the substantive,
the etymological c in the first case
having straugcly become s. This
may be by analogy with "aih'sc
and advice," "practise and prac
tice," "prophesy and prophecy,"
in all of which the verb takes the s.
Then modern spelling gives "judg
ment," "abridgment," "acknow
ledgment," but we retain the c in
Among double forms of spelling
wo have "ecstasy and cxtasy,"
"eoune;;ion and connection," "in
llexion and intieciiou," "despatch
and dispatch," "villainous and vil
lanous,' "negotiable and negoti
able,'' in all of which one can but
binchct the words and say the
former bpelling is preferable. "Re
lloxion" is generally found used in
a physical and "rcllcc on" in a
Again, 1'ic 'mportant rule that
"Verbs ending in a single conso
nant preceded bj' a single vowel
double this consonant when adding
cd or ing only if accented on the
last syllabic," though apparently
respected by American writers and
lexicographers, is violated by Eng
lish writers in more than twenty
verbs ending in 1, as cancel, equal,
level, label, marvel, quarrel, rival,
travel, etc., and also in the verb
"worship," and the t in benefit,
ballot, carpet, etc., is sometimes
doubled, though I notice the Times
always adheres to one t.-- Modern
spelling apparently prefers "in
quire" to the elder "enquire," and
there are other double spellings in
en and in.
If these nnomt'Mcs exist, I cannot
see vhat authoiiiy is followed by
examiners in the various competi
tive examinations where a few so
called mistakes might make the
difference to passing or failing on
the part of a candidate. I noticed
"dcvclope" in a letter recently writ
ten to the T?n by a late Cabinet
Minister, but 1 presume this was an
oversight on the pirl of the writer
I hope when the English diction
ary, at present being prepared un
der the supervision of Dr. Mm ray
is completed, some of the above
dilllcultios in English spelling may
be cleared up- mil that a Pied
standard may exist. Yours fr'th
fully, Til" Editok OF THK PiiiL,:c Sci OOL

On Thursday morning the tUad
body of an Indian was found on the
railroad track near El Rio. Upon
examination it was ascertained that
the unfortunate man's throat had
been cut with some sharp instrument
and immediately afterward the
corpse was put on the track. After
a searching investigation the follow
ing facts came to light: Ahout
three days ago, Francisco, the murr
dercd man, arrived from Maricopa,
arm went into camp near Jm Kio.
Yesterday felimdick, a Mojavc,
accompanied by two comrades,
Yuma Indians, went down to where
tnu Diegino was camped. Francisco
was ordered to stand up, and lie did
so, and the two Yumas held his
hands while the Mojavc htuck a
sharp knife into his throat, keeping
up his cutting until the unfortunate
man fell lifeless at the heartless
uh'jasBin'K feel. The Mojavc does
not deny the killing, an 1 claims that
he had to do it, as the deceased was
porffccshcd of uii evil spirit, and had
witched IiIh brother Mojavc Gun,
who died a yeur ago. The murder
occurred in San Diego county, and
it will undoubtedly receive the pro
per intention of' the ollicorn of the
The writer and a party of friends,
went across the Colorado river, to
view the cremation ceremonies of
Francisco, the murdered Jndian. JL
was hiinset when the "raiicheria"
was readied. On a pyie of mesquitc
and ironwood reposed the lifeless
body of the "good" Indian. About
twenty squaws and bucks, were
making the welkin ring with cries of
lamentation and mourning. Ju a
little while, a tall, "dried up" look
ing warrior raised his right hand,
and all obscivctl the Hlriclcst of
sllencd. The old chief delivered a
long harangue and at a signal from
him the deceased Indian's horse was
killed, and nftcrafcwchoico 'cuts"
were taken from the quivering body,
the carcass was thrown beside lhn
pilo that was soon to consume all
that had once been a human being.
Another signal from the master of
ceremonies, and the lire was started.
Immediately a "Walk around"
ensued, and lime was kept to one of
those lengthy, monotonous and un
musical Indian songs. The night
was dark, and as the llamcs hung
rily licked the dry wood mounting
higher and higher, the singing be
came louder and louder, Dually end
ing in frenzied shrieks. As the
funeral pile succumbed and became
a mass of crumbling coals, a feast of
corn, melons and horse meat was set
out and the worthy sons of the for
est fell to and enjoyed the repast
vith the gusto of nu epicure eating
some extra lid-bit. Yumas A. T. ,
A Woman's Menus and
A. Voice iVom Austria.
Nonr'tlio village of Zlllingdorf, in
Lower Austria, lives Maria Hans, an in.
telligcnt and industrious woman, whoso
story of physical sutleriiig ami llnal ro
lief, as related by herself, is of interest
to English women. "I was employed,"
she says, " in the work of a largo farm
house. Over-work brought on sick
headache, followed by a deathly faint,
ing and sickness of the stomach, until I
was unable to retain either food or
drink. I was compelled to take to my
bed for Bcvcral weeks. Getting a little
belter from rest ami quiet, I sought t
do some work, but was soon taken with
a pain in my side, which in a little
while seemed to spread over my whole
.body, and throbbed in my every limb.
This was followed by n cough and
shortness of breath, until finally 1 could
not sew, and 1 took to my bed for the
second, and, as 1 thought, for the last
time. My friends told .e that 1113' time
bad nearly come, and that I could not
live longer than when the Wees put on
their green nee more. Then I happen
ed to get one of the Seigel pamphlets.
I read it, and my dear mother bought
me a bottle of Scigel's Syrup, which I
took exactly according to directions,
ami I had not taken thu whole of it be
foie I Mt a great change for the better.
My last illness began Juno (, 1882, and
continued to August 0th, when! began
to lake the Syrup. Very soon I could
do a little light work. The cough left
me, and 1 was no more troubled in
b'cathiug. Now I am perfectly cured.
And oh, how happy 1 ami I cannot ex
press gratitudo enough for Scigel's
Syrup. Now I must it'll yon Hint the
doctois iu our district distributed hand,
bills cautioning people against the
medicine, telling them it would do them
no good, and many were thcroby influ
enced to destroy the Seigel pamphlets;
but now, wherever one is to be found, it
is kept jUq a relic. The fow preserved
arc borrowed to read, and f. have lent
mine for 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, ami to bo suio to
get the right kind. I know a woman
who was looking like death, and who
told them theie was no help for her,
that she had consulted several doctors,
but none could help her. 1 told her of
Scigel's Syrup, and wrote the name
down for her that she might make no
mistake. She took my advice and tho
Syiup, and now she is in pertenl 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 lake the Syriip. Sufferers from
gout who were conllned to their bed and
could hardly inovo a linger, have been
cured bv 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 and rheumatic
pains, and had to have an attendant to
watch by bur. There was not 11 dootor
in the 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 hell rang which is
rung in our place when somebody .is
dead, we thought surely it was for her,
but Scigel's Syrup and Pills Hived her
life, and now she is us healthy as any
body, goes to church, and can work
even in the fields. Everybody was as.
tonisbed when they saw her out, know
ing now many years sue iinu iiccn in
bed. To-day she adds her gratitude to
mine for God's mercies and Scigel's
Syrup. Mauia Haas."
The people of England speak confirm,

Great Excitement in Wales
about a Marvellous Cure.
Living: Six Years "Without.
Going: to lied.
Mn.LniTon: While spending a fow
days nl tho plcnatit seaside town of
Aberystwlth, Cnrdlirnnshlrc, Wales, I
heard related what seemed to urn cither
a la bilious story or a m-irvellous cure.
'The story was thai a poor sutl'eier who
hud not been able to lie down in bed for
six hmir ycuis, giveu up lo ilio by all the
Doctors, had been speedily cured by
some Patent Medicine. It was icluteil
wlih the irnuo Implicit confidence- f 10m
tlieelicuinslnnce, 11s was sulci, that the
Vicar of Llnurystyd was familiar with
the facts, and could vouch for tho truth
of the repoit.
ILivlngu little cuiloslty to know how
such stories glow In travelling, I took
the liberty while nt tho village of Llan
ryttyd lo call upon the Vicar, the Hev.
T. Evans, and to enquire about ibis
wondci ful cure. Though a total stran.
ger to him, both ho and his wife most
graciously ciiteitalncd mo in u half
Hour's conversation, principally touching
the case of Mr. Pugb, In which they
t-ocmed to take n deep and sympathetic
inteiest, having been familiar with his
sullerings, and now rejoiced in what
seemed to them a most remarkable cure.
The Vicar remarked thnthcpicsumcd
bis name had been connected with the
report fiom his having mentioned the
case lo Mr. John Thoinns, a chemist of
Liunmi. He said Mr. Pugh was former,
ly a resident)! their parish, but was now
living in the parish of Llunddoinolt
Ho strongly vouched Mr. Win. Pugh's
chaiuctcr as a respectable farmer and
woitby of credit. I left tho venerable
Vicar with a livelier sense of the happy
relation of a pastor and people, feeling
that ho was one who truly sympathised
with all who arc afUictcd 111 mind, body,
On my return to Abcrystwlth, I was
impressed with a desire to see Mr. Puish,
whoso reputation stood so high. His
farm is culled Pancom-Muwr, signifying
."above the dingle," situated near tho
summit of n smooth round hill, overlooking-
a beautiful valley in which is
situated the lovely ivymautlcd Church
of Llanddciuol. I found Mr. Pugh,
apparently about 40 years old, of medium
height, rather slight, with u pleasant and
intelligent face. I told him I had heard
of his great alllietiou and of his lemurk
alile ami almost miraculous relief, and
that I had come to learn fi 0111 his own
lips, what theie was of tiuth in the re
ports. Mr. Pugh remarked that his neigh
bors bad taken 11 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 report as hav
ing heard abroad, said he, is bubstant
iaify line, with one exception. I never
understood that my case was ever given
up as hopeless by any Physician. I
have been treated by sevcial Doctors
hcicauouu, as good as any in Wales, but
unfortunately no picscrjption of theirs
ever brought the desired relief.
Fifteen years ago, he said, I first be
came conscious ot a sour and deranged
stomach and loss of appetite, which the
Doctois told me was Dyspepsia. What
food I could hold in my stomach seem
ed to do mc no good nnd was often
thrown up with painful retchings. This
was followed after a time with a hoarse
ness and a law soreness of the throat
which the Doctors called bronchitis,
nnd t was treated for that, but with
little success. Then came shortness of
breath and a sense of suffocation, espe
ciully night-:, with clammy sweat, and I
would lmvo to get out of bed nnd some,
times open 11 door or window in winter
weather to till my lungs with the cold
About six yeais ago I became to bud
that I could not sleep 1n bed, but had to
take my unquiet rest and dreamy sleep
sitting in an aimchnir. My ullliction
seemed to bo working downward into
my bowels as well us upwards into my
lungs ami tluoat. In the violent cough,
inn spasms which crew more frcauent.
my abdomen would expand and collapse
and at limes it would seem that I should
suffocate. All thib time 1 was reduced
in strength so that I could perform no
hard labor and my spiiits wuri conse
quently much depressed.
HEREBY give notice that from
and after this date, I will not
lie responsible for-any debts' con
tracted witiiout the written order of
myself or wife.
