A Woman's Sullcrhigs ami
A. Voloo IVom A.inti'ln.
Near the village of Zuiiugdorf, In
Lower Austria, lives Mai la Hans, an In.
telllgcnlaud Industrious Ionian, whoso
Btory of physical sutlcrlug and llnal re
lief, as related by herself, is of interest
to English women. "I was employed,"
she says, " in the work of n largo farm
)iouo. Ovcr.vtork brought on sick
headache, followed by n deathly faint
ing and sirkucss of tho stomach, until I
win unable to retain cither food or
drink. 1 was compelled to take to my
bed for scvcial weeks. Gelling a little
belter from icsl find quiet, I bought t
do somo 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 a cough nnd
shortness of breath, until finally I could
not sew, and 1 took to my bed for the
second, and, as 1 though), for the last
time. My friends told me that my time
had nearly come, nnd that 1 could not
live longer than when tin tiees put on
their gnen nee more. Then 1 happen
ed to get oue of the Selgel pamphlets.
I read it, nnd my dear mother bought
me n bottle of Scigel's Syrup, which I
took exactly ncconllng lo directions,
nnd I hnd not taken the whole oT it be.
fore I felt a gieat change for the belter.
My last illness began . I line !, 18S2, and
continued to August Oth, when 1 began
to tako tho Syrup. Very soon 1 could
do a little light work. The cough left
me, and I was no more troubled in
b cathing. Now I am perfectly cured.
And oh, how happy I ami I cannot ex.
press gratitude enough for Scigel's
Syrup. Now I must tell you that the
doclois in our district distributed hand
bills cautioning people against the
medicine, telling them it would do them
no good, aud many were thereby iuflu.
eneed to destroy the Selgel pamphlets;
but now. wherever one is to bo found, it
is kept like a relic. The few presei ved
are borrowed to read, and I have lent
mlno for six miles mound our district.
People have come eighteen miles to get
me to buy the medicine for them, know
ing that it cured me, and to be sure to
get tho right kind. I know a woman
who was looking liko death, nnd who
told them theio was no help for her,
that she had consulted several doctors,
but none could help her. 1 told her of
Scigel's Syiup, and wrote the name
down for Jicr that she might make no
mistake. She took my advico and the
Syiup, and now she is in perfect health,
and the people mound u are amazed.
The medicine his made such progicss
in our neighborhood that people say
they don't want tho doctor any more,
but thev take the Syrup. Sufferers from
gout who were confined to their bed and
could hardly move n linger, have been
cuicd by it. There is a girl in our dis
trict who caught a cold by going
through some water, nnd was in bed live
years with costivcncss nnd rheumatic
pains, and had to have nn attendant to
watch by her. Theio was not a doctor
in the surrounding districts to whom
her mother laid not applied to relievo
her child, but overy one crossed them
selves and said they could not help hei.
Whenever the little bell l.ing which is
lung in our place when somebody is
dead, we thought surely it was for her,
but Scigel's Syrup and Pills saved her
life, and now she is as healthy as any.
body, goes to church, and cm work
even in the fields. Everybody was as
tonisbed when they saw her out, know
ing how many years she had been in
bed. To day bho adds her gratitude to
mine for God's mercies and Scigel's
Syrup. Mawa Haas."
The people of England speak confirm,

THE STRANGE STORY OF AN EPITAPH.
J1Y TllU KEV. T V. II UU II Ed.
A remarkably story 1ms been go.
ing round tho papers. It is this:
A missionary who lived fit Posliawur,
on tho Afghan frontier, was shot
by his watchman, and tho people
of the place inscribed on his tomb,
"Well done, thou good and faithful
It is a capital joke. Jt appeared
ilrst in the London "Vanity Fair."
It is oven told m Mr. Wylic's guide
to his maps of Central Asia, which
are drawn with such mathematical
precision. It is related at every
dinner table in India. And it is
likely to be handed down in every
book of clerical anecdote for genera
tions to come. The story as told in
"Vanity Fair" is as follows: Theie
resided at Peshawur a Presbyterian
missionary who wns a learned man,
but of highly irascible temper, and
who was, consequently, but little
loved by his Episcopal bretlircn.
The learned man w as a Jew nnd an
American citizen, and when he was
accidentally shot by his watchman
the English residents of Pcshaw ur
collected a considerable sum of
monej', and requested tho Kpisco
pal missionaries to erect a suitable
monument over tho grave of their
Presbyterian brother. But they
took their revenge. They put on
the monument: "Tho Reverend
, shot by his watchman. 'Well
done, thou good nnd faithful sei
The story is recorded as an amus
ing and comical instance of clerical
bigotry. But it unfortunately lacks
one impoitant clement, tho olomcnt
of truth. It is not true. Not a
word of it.
The inscription runs tints :
"Elected to the memory of tho
Roy. Isjdoro Lowenthal, missionary
of the American Presbyterian Mis
sionary Society, who translated the
New Testament into Pushto, and
was shot by his chowkidar, April
27, 18CJ. 'I am not ashamed of
the gospel of Christ. For it is the
powpr of God imto salvation to
every one that bolicvoth.' " Rom.
That is all; not one word more.
And yet if you travel in India j-ou
will meet with the most respectable
peoplo who will bo ready to swear
that they have seen tho very words
"Well done," etc, on the tomb with
their own eyes. I was once dining
at tho mess of the Royal Artillery
in Peshawur, and I heard the chief
civil ofllcer '-of the district tell the
story amid roars of laughter (for a
joke at the expense of the clergy al
ways takes). "I beg your pardon,
Captain O ," I said, "but do
you know that little story of yours
is not true?" "I beg yours," the
magistrate replied, "but I have
seen the words on the tomb myself."
A friend of mine called
upon the ofllcer command
ing the Nineteentli Cavalry at
Peshawur, when the gallant colonel
told the story of the epitaph. Upon
hearing it again repeated, I called
upon the colonel of the Nineteenth
Cavalry and assured him that the
stor3' was not true. "But I have
read it on the tomb," was the reply.
On another occasion I was flining at
the house of the Sessions Judge at
Peshawur, when the lady of the
house entertained her guests with
tho story. After dinner I informed
my hostess that it was not true.
She said: "I have read it on the
tomb." I offered to take her to the
cemetery the next morning, and I
then pointed to the inscription as it
stands. "Then you have changed
it," she exclaimed, "for I am cer
tain I once read it." Now, here is
one of the most remarkable instances
of the unsatisfactory nature of cir
cumstantial evidence. The chief
magistrate of a civil disttict, the
colonel of a cavalry regiment, and
the wife of a 'sessions judge, all
three witnesses of undoubted repu
tation, were, I (irmly believe, pre
pared to swear to the existence of
that text of Scripture on the tomb
of the Rev. Mr. Lowenthal, and now
wo have not only "Vanity Fair,"
but "Wylio's Guide," and a host
of papers, asserting the same thing.
"But what proof have you that tho
text was never on the tomb?" it
will be asked. My leply is, lam
tho person who bcjected (jio text
which is on thp tomb. I did not
writo the inscription; Unit was
written by a clergyman now at
Umritsar, in tho Punjab. But, at
his request, I selected the toxt
Rom, 1., 1G, And there ncvor lias
been any other toxt on the tomb.
Then how could such a story oiigi
nato? Its history is as follows: h
the previous year to Mr. Lowon
tlinl'u death, a missionary died at
Peshawur, and the chaplain of the
station wrote over the entry of the
deatli in the register pf burials,
"Well done, thou good and faithful
servant." When his Presbyterian
brother was shot, tho chaplain, who
wns a personal friend of his, wrote
tho same toxt across tho entry of
his death, without the least inten
tion of perpetrating a joke. I re
lated tfiis fact to the chaplain's suc
cessor for tho chaplain who made
tho entry died soon uftorward who
bent it to a church paper in India.
"Rufllor," tho Indian correspondent
of "Vanity Fair," got hold of it,
and perveitcd the facts as they aro
now related. But it may bo asked,
"How do you account fdr so tnaliy
respectable witnesses be'lug so con
fident Hint they ltavd'rcad tho words
on the tomb?" This strango clr
cumstanco is accounted for by the
fact tllnt the words of tho inscrip
tion, "Translated the Now Tosla
niiiilt into Pushto, and was shot
by his chowkidar," always excite
remark, the transition being some
what sharp, and the peoplo go
nway remembering that there
is something peculiar in the inscrip
tion, so when they hear tho story
from "Vanity Fair" they feel cer
tain that they have seen tho words
on the tomb. The whole circum
stance 1 have always found to be
exceedingly interesting to students
of legal evidence.
The Rev. Mr. Lowenthal was a
remarkable man. lie wns born at
Posen, in Prussian Poland, of Jewish
parents, in 1827. Ho emigrated to
America in 1847, and was reduced to
provety, and became n peddler in
the streets of New York. Having
made a little money, ho becamo a
teacher in Lafayetto College. In tho
autum of that year he embraced
'Christianity, and" was baptized. In
18o"2 he became a student in Piince
ton College, where ho graduated.
Ho was accepted as a missionary of
the American Presbyterian Society
in 1857, and went out to l'cshawur,
where he was celebrated for his
linguistic attainments, and where he
translated the New Testament into
the languago of the Afghans. Ho
was accidentally shot by his watch
man in 18(14, tlio your 1 llrst went to
Peshawur. His memorial tomb is
an exceedingly handsome monument
of Delhi sandstone, aud it is likoly
to be one of tho most historic monu
ments in India, for not only is theie
the strange story of its epitaph, but
it was afterward discovered that in
the Persian translation of the Eng
lish inscription the Mohammedan
sculptor had added tho words,
"Don't laugh;" a ciacumstancc
which is related in "Murray's Hand
book," the wiiter of which verifies
tho truth of my present narrative.
And thus it happens that the
niemoiy of tins distinguished gradu
ate of Princeton is more likely to be
handed down to posterity by the
strange blunders regarding his
monument in that distant cemetery
than by his literary leputation, or
even his translation of the Scriptures
into the languago of the Afghan
