Great Excitement in Wales
about a Marvollous Cure.
Living Six Years Without
Going to Bed.
Mil. Kditok: While spending n few
days nt the pleasant scasido town of
Abcrystwlth, Cardiganshire, Wnles, I
heard related what seemed to mo cither
a fabulous atory or a marvellous cure.
The storv was that a ooor sutTerer who
had not been able to He down In bed for
bIx long years, given up to dlo by all the
Doctors, had been speedily cureil by
some Patent Medicine. It was related
with tho more lmnliclt confidence from
the circumstance, as was said, that the
Vicar of Llanrystyd was familiar with
the facts, mid could vouch for tho truth
of tho report.
Having 11 little curiosity to know how
such stories prow In travelling, I took
the liberty wlillu at the village of J.liin
ryfctvd to call upon tho Vicar, the How
T. Evans, nnd to enquire about this
wonderful cure. Though a total stran.
gcr to him, both he nnd his wife most
graciously entertained mo in n half
hour'sconvcrsailon, principally touching
the case of Mr. Pugh, in which they
seemed to take a deep nnd sympathetic
interest, having been familiar with his
sullcrings, niul now rejoiced in what
seemed to them a most remarkable cure.
He strongly vouched Mr. Win. Pugh's
chaineter as a respectable farmer and
worthy of credit. I left the venerable
Vicar with a livelier tense of the nanny
relation of a pastor and people, feeling
that he was one who'truly sympathised
with all who are nllllclcd in mind, body,
On my return to AbcijHlwitli, I was
Impressed with a desire to see Mr. I'tiuh,
whose reputation stood 10 high. His
farm is called Pancom.Mawr, signifying
"above the dingle," situated near the
summit of a binooth round hill, over,
looking a beautiful valley in which is
situated the lovely ivymautlcd Church
of Llanddolnol. 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 alllictlon 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 the re
ports. Mr. Pugh remarked that his neigh,
bors had taken a kindly and symp
athetic interest In ids case for many
years, but of late their interest had been
greatly awakened by n happy chango lu
his condition. What you report as hav
lug heard abroad, said he, is BUbstant.
ially true, with one exception. I never
unedrstood that my case was ever given
up as hopeless by any Physician. I
liuvo been treated by soveial Doctors
hereabouts, as good as any in Wales, but
unfortunately no prescription of theirs
ever brought tho desired relief.
Fifteen years ago, he said. I llrst be
camo conscious of n sour and deranged
stomach and loss of appetite, which tho
Doctors told mo was Dyspepsia. What
food I could hold in my stomach seem.
cd to do mo no good and was often
thrown up with painful retchings. This
was followed after a timo with a hoarse
ness and 11 raw soreness of tho throat
which the Doctors called bronchitis,
and I was treated for that, but with
little success. Then camo shortness of
breath and a senso of suffocation, espc.
dally nights, with clammy sweat, and I
would have to get out of bod nnd some
times open a door or window in winter
weather to 1111 my lungs with tho cold
The Vicnr remarked that ho presumed
his name had been connected with the
report from -his having mentioned the
case to Mr. John Thomas, a chemist of
Llanon. He tald Mr, Pugh was former
ly a resident of their parish, but was now
living in the parish of Llanddcinol.
This medicine they i.dmlnistercc' to
mo according to tho directions, when to
their surprise and delight no less than
my own, tho spasm ceased. I became at
case, and my btomach was calmed. My
bowels weic moved as by a gentle
cathartic, and 1 felt a senso of quiet
comfort all through uch as 1 had not
before realized in many years. I could
walk around the houso and breathe
comfortably in a few hours after I had
taken the medicine. I have continued
to take the medlcinu dally now for
something over two months, and I can

Early in this last spring I had a still

family and neighbors became alarmed,
believing that certainly I would notsu

kuowlcdge, or had heard of thu medi
cine, sent to Aberystwith by the driver
of the Omnibus Post, somo seven miles
distant, and fetched a bottle of Mother
Selgcl's Curative Syrup.
I have been much congratulated by
my neighbors, especially by the good
Vicar of Llanrystyd, who with his syin.
pathetic wifo have come three miles to
shed tears of joy on my recovery.
I bade Mr. Pugh good.bye, happy that
even one at least among thousands had
found a remedy for nn aggravating dls.
About six yeois ago I bocarno so bad

CHEWING THE CUD.
A very largo Irlbo of animals, of
which Hlicen anil cows arc familiar
examples, chew the cud. They do
so because their peculiar organs of
digestion require it. They can get
their perfect nourishment in no other
way. They have, it is saw, lour
stomachs, but tho statement is 110
strictly correct, for tho entire digest
lion is done in a single one that
which is called the fourth the other
three being only plnccs for prepar
atory worlc. Their food is swallowed
without being much chewed; tho
chewing is to como later. When
this partially chewed food is swal
lowed it passes directly into the llrst
stomach, which serves only to soak
and soften tho coarse food. When
tho first has done what it can tho
food passes out of it into tho second,
nnd then the cow or sheep is ready
to "chew tho cud." Tho second
stomach while soaking tho food
keens it In motion, and gradually
rolls it up into masses so Hint in the
small upper part there is found an
oblong solid lump of the size that
wo recognize as the "cud." This
tho animal throws up into the mouth
and chows with evidently us much
satisfaction as tho same act of masti
cation gives us when wo put the
most delicate morsols between our
teeth. When it is sufllcicntly
chewed the mass is swallowed and
its place taken by tmother nvhich
has been rolled up in the meantime.
But the "cud" thus masticated
docs not return to the second
stomach from which it came; it
passes smoothly into the third, a
place for additional lubrication, and
then into the fourth, where the true
digestion begins and ends.--Weekly
A MASTER OF EPIGRAM.
Tho Hot. Dr. Thompson, Master
of Trinity College, Oxford, whoso
death was recorded a fortnight ago,
was best known to tho mass of uni
versity men for his extraordinary
command of epigram. It cannot
altogether havo been a pleasant
thing says a contemporary, to be a
colleague of tho Master of Trinity,
if one may Judgo by tho two say
ings which most ofton passed cur
rent under his mark, and which
were directed at two of his collea
gues. Has the junior Fellow who
was reminded that 'we are none of
us infallible, not even the youngest
of us' ever forgotten the reproach?
And the elegant scholar of whom Dr.
Thompson said, 'What timo he can
spare from the adornment of his
person ho devotes to the neglect of
his duties ;' did he admire the wit,
ono wonders, enough to make him
forgive the cruelty? Hut for con
centrated essence of biting epigram
perhaps Dr. Thompson's critcism of
two . successive professors of
history bears off tho palm.
'I'oor Kingsloy,' said the master, as
he camo out from a new professor's
inaugural lecture ( 'J never missed
him before.' Speaking once on a
proposal to anticipate the demands
of the Royal Commission on the
Universities, by an offer on tho part
of tho colleges lo volunteer contri
butions to tho University fund, Dr.
Thompson said that experience con
firmed the belief that the proper
translation of bis flat qui cito flat
was, that 'he who gives prematurely
will havo to gtvo twice.' And .in
answer to a lady who was dilating
upon tho endowments of v. popular
preacher claiming for htm 'such
scholarship, such eloquence, such
taste.' 'Yes,' growled the Master
of Trinity,' 4F has lots of taste,
lots of taate, and all of it bad I'
A SPORTING RETROSPECT.
Tho Home News, in its retrospect
of tho past year, reviews the year's
sport ill Khgland jn tho following
"Tho year's sport has bpen re
markably varied nnd interesting.
All the national pastimes have been
very creditably sustained by both
home and colonial representatives.
Tho visit of an Australian eleven led to
but tho display of cricket was loss
than usually brilliant. Tho Austra
lians were weak in batting power,
nud their bowlers did not succeed
well, so that they won only nino out
01 11 total of thirty-nine matches.
Hut tho Colonjal reputation was
maintained by Beach, the champion
sculler of the world, who had con
qttcrcd Haitian, and this year held
hi own nirninst all comers on tho
Thames. fJrcat events, carrying
vast stakes, came oft amongst inter
national competitors, and in a) I Lite
Australian sculler was triumphant.
liacing has been as popular as ever,
t)io national enthusiasm having been
heightened tliis year by tho appear
ance of one of tho tjtiost dorses of
modern times. Tho Duke of West
minster's Ormonde shares with West
Australian, Glndiatcur, and Lord
Lyon tho honour of having won
easily, and in splendid form, tho
three principal events of his year,
tho Two Thousand, the Derby,
nud tho St. Lcgcr. Other features
of tho year's racing were, the fre
quent defeat of the favorites, the
establishment of the Jvclipse Stakes,
worth i'10,000, and tho much
lamented death of Fred Archer, tho
most famous jockey of iiiodern times.
Archer, a man of strong frame, had
sorely tried his constitution by re
peated "wasting," and his usual
diet of "teidlitz powders nnd soda
and brandy'1 loft him too weak to
resist an attack of typhoid fever.
Whilo progressing favourably from
tho disease, ho committed suicido in
a moment of delirium, to tho great
regret of all who respect pluck and
straightforwardness of character."
A certain university was ouco said
lo bo a learned place, from the fact
that most persons took'somc learning
there, whilo but few brought any
away with them. So it accumulated.
"Ah, there are new features in
the case," remarked tho photo
grapher, as ho foenssed applicant
