Groat Excitement in Wales
about a Marvellous Cure.
Living Six Years Without
Going to Bod.
Mil. Jditoii: While spending a fow
days nt the pleasant seaside town of
Abcrystwith, Cardiganshire, Wnlcs, I
heard related what seemed to mu cither
a fabulous story or a marvellous cure.
Tho story wn that a poor sufferer who
had not been able to Ho down in bed for
six long ycais, given up to die by nil tho
Doctors, had been speedily cured by
some Patent Medicine. It was related
with the more implicit confidence from
the circumstance, us was said, that tho
Vicar of Llaurystvd was familiar with
the facts, and could vouch for tho truth
of the repot t.
Having u littlo cuiioity to know how
such sloiies grow in travulllng, I took
the liberty while fit the vitiligo of Linn.
lystvd to call upon the Vicur, the Rev.
T. Evans, nnd to onqulic about this
wonderful cum. Though a total strau.
ger to him, both he and his wife most
graciously cntertaiuul mo lii n half
hour's conversation, principally touching
tho caso of Mr. Pugh, in which they
seemed to tnkc a deep and sympathetic
lntciost, having been familiar witli his
sullerings, nnd now rejoiced in what
seemed 10 them a most lcuiiirknblo cuie.
The Vicar remarked that hcpiesumcd
his name had been connected with the
report from his having mentioned the
case to Mr. John Thomas, a chemist of
Llauon. Ho said Mr. Pugh was former,
ly n icsideutof thofr parish, but was now
living in tho p.uish of Llauddeinol.
Ho strongly vouched Mr. Win. Pugh's
character as a respectable farmer and
woithy of credit. I left the venerable
Vicar with a livelier sense of the happy
relation of a pastor and people, feeling
that he was one who truly sympathised
with all who aie alUicted minimi, body,
On my return to Abcrystwith, I was
impicssed witli a 'esire to see Mr. Pugh,
whose reputation stood so high. His
farm is called Pancom-Mawr, signifying
"above the dingle," situated near the
summit of a smooth round hill, over
looking a beautiful valley in which Is
situated tho lovely ivymanlled Church
of Llanddcinol. I found Mr. Pugh,
apparently about 40 years old, of medium
height, rather slight, with a pleasant and
intelligent race. I told him I had heard
of his great affliction and o' his remark
able and almost miiaculous relief, and
that 1 had come to learn from his own
lips, what there was of truth in the re
ports. Mr. Pugh remarked Hint his neigh,
bors had taken a kindly and symp
athetic intcicst in his case for many
years, bv . of late their interest had been
gioatly awakened by a happy change in
his condition. What you lcpoit as hav
ing hcnul abioad, said lie, is substant.
ially true, witli one exception. I never
understood -that my case was ever given
up as hopeless by any Physician. I
have been treated by bcveral Doctors
hereabouts, as good os any in Wales, but
unfortunately no prescription 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
Doctors told me was Dyspepsia. What
food J could hold in my stomach seem
cd to do mo no good and was often
thrown up with painful retchings. This
was followed nftera time with a hoarse
ness and a raw soreness of the throat
which the Doctois called bronchitis,
nnd I was treated for that, but witli
little success. Then came shortness of
bieath and a sense of suffocation, espe
cially nights, wjlh clammy sweat, and I
would have to got out pf bed and some
times open a door or wiudow jn winter
weather to fill my luugs with the cold
About six yeais ago I became so bad
that I could not sleep in bed, but had to
take my unquiet rest and dieatnj sleep
sitting in nn armchair. My affliction
bcemed to be working downward into
my bowels as well as upwards into my
lungs anil throat. In Hits yiolent cough
ing spasms which grew more frequent,
my abdomen would expand and collapse
and at times it would seem that 1 should
suffocate. All this time 1 was reduced
in strength so that I could perform no
hard labor and my spiiits werM conse
quently much depiessed.
Early in this last spring I had a still
more severe spasmodic attack', and my
family and neighbors became alarmed,
bolieving that certainly I would not sur
vive, when u neighbor, who had somo
knowledge, or had heard of the medi.
cine, sent to Abcrystwith by the driver
of the Omnibus Post, some seven miles
distant, and fetched a bottle of Mother
Seigel's Curative Syrup.
This medicine they administered to
me according to the directions, when to
their suiprise nnd delight no less Hum
my own, the spasm ceased. I became nt
ease, and my stomach was calmed. My
bowels were moved as by a gentle
cathartic, and I felt a sense of quiet
comfort nil through such ns I had not
boforo realized in many years. I could
walk around the house nnd breathe
comfortably in a few hours nfter I had
taken the medicine. I liavo continued
to take Hie medicine daily now for
homciuitig over two montns, ami x can
lie down and sleep sweetly at nights
nnd have not since had a recurrence of
those terrible spasms and sv eatings. I
have been so long broken down and re
duced in my whole system that I have
not tried to perform any very hard out
door labor, deeming it best to be pru
dent lest by ovcr-exertlon I may do my.
self injury before my Blrength is fully
restored. I feel that my stomach nnd
bo.wcls have been and are being thor
oughly renovated and renewed by the
medicine. In fact I feci like a new
I have been much congratulated by
my neighbors, espccinllyby the good
Vicar of Llnnrybtyd, who witli his syni.

THE COST OF FOOD.
My own investigations led inc to
take the average consumption of
operatives in New England and the
Middle Stales Iwo-Uiirds to tliree
fourtlis women and children, tho re
mainder boys and men as a fair
standard of the cost of food on thu
average throughout the country. It
is probably n high standard. It
resolves itself substantially into the
following subdivisions, disregarding
small fractions: Meat, poultry, anil
llsh, ten cents n day; dairy pro
ducts, consisting of "milk, one-half
pint, butler, one and onc-fouitli lo
one and one-half ounces, and cheese,
a scrap, live cents a day; eggs, one
half cent a day ; bread, vegetables,
sugar, ten, coffee, salt, rice, and
spices, nino and one-half cents a
day. Total, Iwcnty-ilvo cents.
Suillcc it that the range of differ
ences in this estimate in the eastern
section of this country would prob
ably lie between twonty and twenty
live cents a da'. In cither event,
substantially three-fifths of the price
of food is paid for animal products,
two-fifths for all else. If we take
twenty-five cents as the standard of
a day's ration for an adult, on the
basis of the factory operatives, and
assume tlic consuming power-of the
present population of the United
States as that of .r0,000,000 adults
at ten cents a day for meat, poultry,
and llsh, the total yearly expendi
ture would be $1,825,000,000; live
cents a day for milk, butter, and
cheese, 8012,500,000; at one-half
cent a day for eggs, 891,250,000.
This would give a total expenditure
for consumption, at market prices,
for animal products, of $2,828,750,
000. If tliis estimate of the consump
tion of animal products is approxi
mately correct, it is about double
the value of all fibrous substances
when converted into cloth, the cloth
converted into clothing, carpets,
drapery, and the like, all being dis
tributed for final consumption, in
cluding the domestic product and
the foreign imports. These are ap
proximately correct estimates. They
serve to bring the relative condi
tions of production into conspicu
ous prominence, a larger sum being
expended for animal products than
for clothing, carpets, bed linen, etc.
Edward Atkinson, in Chicago
It has been proved, at the ex
pense of numbciless small animals,
that no one food clement alone is
capable of "supporting life. It often
happens, also, that although an ali
ment naturally contains all the
requisites of a proper food, it may
come to our tables so prepared that
it cannot be utilized by the system.
It is not enough to provide good and
proper food material ; it must have
such preparation as will not lessen,
but increase, its alimentary value.
Poor food is quite as often the re
sult of bad cooliory as of poor selec
tion of material. To servo the end
for which it was designed, food
fahould be both nutritious and
digestible ; the first requisite de
pends mainly upon its selection;
the second, upon its preparation.
Cookery ought to make food more
digestible; it should be a sort of
partial preliminary digestion of the
food elements, Proper cookery
changes oacU of tho food elements,
with the exception of fats, in much
the same manner as does the diges
tive juices ; and at the same time it
breaks up the' soluble portions of
food so that they are more readily
acted upon by the digestive fluids.
Cookery, however, by no means al
ways attains the d,csired end ; and
often the very best of foods are
rendered useless, unwholesome, and
even dangerous, by improper pre
Poor cookery is far oftener the
rule than the exception ; and it is
rare indeed to find a table upon
which some portion of the food is
npt rendered, unwholcso'me, either
by improper preparatory treatment,
or by the addition of some dele
terious substance which not only
lessens ils digestibility, but, as is
too often the case, if that substance
bo a strong condiment, makes the
food, through its irritating and ex
citing character, an incentive to
waid tho acquirement of the drink
E. E. Kellogg, in
KEEPING UP APPEARANCES.
If all those who are keeping up
nppearances would sensibly reduce
their expenses, there would bo
plenty of respectable company for
all. One of tho gre.il points is to
begin right. A littlo houso means
less trouble to tako care of it, and
a knowledge of cooking implies the
ability to use moderate-priced
materials. Tho wearing of un
fashionable and well-mended clothes
proclaims the independence of tho
woaror. Tho cutting down of minor
expenses implios strength of charac
ter. And this cutting down, to bo
worth anything, must bo doue sys
matically, and not by fits and starts,
and its object explained to the
family. Character and conduct,
what ono is rather than what onu
bus, is the real test of standing in
any community. Elizabeth Journal,

This was follow eil by u cough and
