A CASE OF MUTUAL PDCKEl-PICKIHC.
A peculiar ense of mutual pockct-
S taking tool: place last evening in
iu neighborhood of the Oiloon
Thoator. A well dressed person,
who la vaguely described ..3 a Bii
ton, accosted an equally f -sutonnbly
Atttted native of this couutrv, and
wked the way to the Pantheon. Tho
pbllging Gaul pointed out the direct
route to the edifice In question, and
was immediately asked 'iy the al
leged English subject to pm take of
some refreshment in an adjacent
cafe. The Frenchman, nothing
loath, entered with the temporary
acquaintance into a house in the
Kuo Souffiot, and alcoholic stimu
lants were ordered oy tho generous
son of Albion The refreshments
were repeated, and the two imbibers
engaged for some time in a friendly
conversation, which tnw carried on
by the Briton in broken French and
by the Gaul in mutilated English.
Then the Frenchmnn took his leave
and walked quickly away in the
direction of the Boulevard St.
Michel. The alleged Englishman,
who had lemaincd behind to arrange
with the waiter about the tariff for
the final round of refreshments, was
suddenly observed to pull his hands
out of his pockets with a despair
ing look and to make a rush to the
door, knocking over chairs and
tables in his precipitate progress.
"When in the street he shouted out
"Stop thief!" in as good French as
he could muster, and the hue and
crj- was quickly proclaimed. Po
licemen, waiters, small boys and
flaneurs took up the chase, and the
elegantly attired and quickly re
treating Gaul was captuied near the
Cluny Museum after .a most excit
ing run. The two quondam ac
quaintances became so violent'to
wards each other that both were
marched off to the station, wheic a
turning out of pockets took place
in the usual manner. It was then
discovered that the Briton had ad
roitly posbessed himself, while in
the cafe, of the Gaul's purse, while
the latter had practiced the same
operation on the foreigner. Paris
"Why, Georgie," said a girl to
her little brother, "I've just heard
that you were whipped at school
last week. I had no idea of it until
I was told a few minutes ago."
"Hadn't you?" responded Georgie.
And then he added with a tone and
ajr of pride: "Why, I knew it at
My little son John, not much over
two years old, had been told that
the head on the 2-ccnt stamp was
of the "Father ot his country."
One day he picked up a letter with
a Canadian stamp, the head of
Queen Victoria. He looked at it
very earnestly, for a minute, then
said triumphantly: "Mamma of the
A PAUPER'S DYING REQUEST.
An amusing and yet pathetic in
cident in what the poet Gray called
" the short and simple annals of
the poor," is told by Mr. John J. R.
Micklcjohn, one of the Inspectors
of the Poor, at Sherwick, Shetland
Islands. He says that some time
ago an old woman, named Baibara
Smith, came under the notice of the
Board. She was extremely ill, aud
it did not look likely that she would
long need care of any kind. She
did not reside on the main land, bui
on a small island a few miles distant
and there being no parochial institu
tions in that place, Barbara neces
sarily occupied the position of a
pauper living out. The trouble
from which she suffered dated back
many years. In better and more
prosperous days Bho had in some
way laid the foundation for Chtonic
Indigestion and Dyspepsia, and out
of this had sprung other complaints
as age and bodily infirmities crept
apaco upon her.
Barbara was not ignorant, albeit
she had fallen into poveity. In ear
lier life she somehow obtained the
advantage of a fair education, and
this, added to native shrewdness,
enabled her to use good judgment in
respect to her own situation and
state of health. Although she had
long suffered fiom asthma and a
bronchial affection, Barbara was
wise enough to see that these ail
ments arose from tho disordered
stomach and digestion, and that if
the main trouble could be cured the
others would soon leave her. It is
probable th.it her disease began as
others do, with the usual symptoms :
headaches, bad breath, the rising of
aour fluids in the throat, oppression
and fainlness at the pit of the stom
ach, loss of sleep, coated tongue,
dull eyes, bad taste in the mouth,
&c, and finally became chronic and
hopeless through her not being able
to find any remedy, The Inspector
states that she had been under med
ical treatment for j'cats, but to no
effect. In this strait she one day
mado the following touching appeal
to the Inspector: "I have been
swallowing medicines for months.
Tboy do ino no good. I am going
on from worse to worse. I can en
sure it no longer, I feel that in a
week or two 1 thall be dead. Theic
is one last request I would make of
you: give me a bottle of Muthei
Siigel's Curative tmp; ,it N m
only hope. If it piuu-s a failure
and does me no good I will die in
penoo, and moke no more ospense
to tho pniU.li."
It .seems she had got hold of 011c
of Mother Seigol'a Almanacks and
rend of the grent luici -woughl bj
the Syrup in cases liku lieis.
Tho Board pitied tho poor lone
woman and grantod her petition, be
lieving, however, the syiup would
prove as useless as the other medi
cines she had already taken. What
was their astonishment to find, in the
conise of n few days, that she had
not only been able to get out of bed,
but to move about outside tho house,
and had taken journeys to a consid
erable distance, and was actually en
joying better health than since she
was first taken ill. The asthma and
bionehitis, which weic no more than
symptoms of her true disease (indi
gestion and dyspepsia), rapidly
abated, and it now seems that Bar
bara will soon be as hale and heaity
as the Inspector himself, and be one
of the hosts of living witnesses to
the power of Mother Scigcl's Syrup
to save the thousands who weic just
ready to perish.

Our leaders may rccnll the cir
cumstance of n young clerk, named
Arthur Itlcuold, falling insensible
on tho Wcatloy Lauo in this town
some time ago, and being picked
up, ns he coutiuued perfectly help
lessf and taken iu a cab by two
gentlemen to tho olllco of Jb W.
Fisher, Esq; the solicitor who em
ployed him. On restoring him to
consciousness it was ascertained
that he was aflicted with what
seemed to be an incurable disease.
When he was able to speak ho
said ho had been to his dinner and
nnd was on Ills way back to his
work, when suddenly his head was
in a whirl and he fell in the street
like a man who is knocked down.
On coming to his senses in the soli
citor's olllce lie thought what this
might mean, and feared ho was
going to have a fit of illness, which
wo all know is a vciy. dreadful
thing for a poor man with a family
to care for.
With this in his mind he at once
sought the "best medical advice,
telling the doctors how he had been
attacked. They questioned him
and found Hint his present malady
was exhaustion of the nervous sys
tem resulting from general debility,
indigestion, and dyspepsia of a
chronic nature. This in turn had
been caused by confinement to his
desk and grief at the loss of dear
friends by death. The coming on
of this strange disease, as desciibcd
by Mr. Richold, must be of inter
est both to sick and well. He had
noticed for several ycais preiously,
in fact, that bis eyes and face be
gan to have a yellow look; thcie
was a sticky and unpleasant slin.e
on the gums and teeth in the
morning; ihe tongue coated; and
the bowels so bound and costive
that it induced that most painful
and tioublp&ome ailment the piles.
He says there was some pain in
the bides and back and a si use of
fulness on the right side, as though
the liver woie enlarging, which
proved to be the terrible fact. -The
secretions from .the kidneys
would be scanty and high-coloured,
with a kind of gritty or sandy
deposit after standing.
These things had troubled Mr.
Richold a long time, and after his
fall in the street he clearly perceived
that the fil of giddiness was nothing
more than a 6ign of the steadly
and deadly advance of the complaint,
which began in digestion and dys
pepsia. His story of how he went
from one physician to another in
seai ch of a cure that his wife and
little ones might not come to want is
very pathetic and touching. Finally
he became too ill to keep his situa
tion and had to give it up. This
was a sad calamity. lie was appall
ed to think how he should be able to
livo. But God raised up friends
who helped to keep the wolf from
the door. He then went to the sea
side at Walton-011-the-Naze, but
neither the change, nor the phy
sicians who treated him there, did
any good. All being without avail
he visited Loudon, with a sort of
vaue hopo that some advantage
might happen to him in the metro
polis. This was in October, 1885.
How wonderful, indeed, arc the
ways of Providence, which dashes
down our highest hopes and then
helps us when we least expect it.
While in London lie stated his con
dilion to a fiiend, who stiongly ad
vised him to tiya medicine which lie
called Mother JSeitrl's Curative
Syrup, saying it was genuine and
honest, and often cured when every
thing else had failed. He bought
a bottle of a chemist in Fimlico, and
began using it accoi ding to tho di
rections. He did this w illiout faith
or hope, and the public, may there
fore judge of his surpiiso and plea
sure when after taking a few doses
he felt great relief. He could cat
better ; his food distressed him less ;
the symptoms. we have uatned abated ;
the dark spots which had floated
before his eyes like smuts of soot,
gradually disappeared, and his
strength increased. Before this
time his knees would knock together
whenever he tried to walk, bo en
couraged .vas he now that he kept
on using Mi tirr Utiifel's Curative
Syrup until it ended in completely
In spi akijig of his wonderful re
covery Mr. Richold says it mado
him think of poor Robinson Crusoe,
and his deliverance fiom captivity
on his island in the sea; and added,
"Hut for Mother Seigol's Curative
Syiup tho grass would now bo
glowing over my grave."
Our readers can rest asstued of
of the strict truth of all the state
ments iu this most icmorkablc case,
as Mr. Richold (now residing at
Swiss Cottage, Walton-on-the-Nazo)
belongs to one of the oldest and
most respected families in iho benu
tlful villago of Long Melford,
Suffolk, and his personal chnracter
is attested hy bo high an authority
as the Rev. C. J. Mailyn, rector
of that paiish, besides other excel
lent names. We have deemed tho
caso of such (nportanco to the pub
lic as to justify us iu givinc this
short account of it in our columns,
