COLD IN SOUTH AFRICA.
It is remarkable but not surpris
ing circumstance that certain exten
sive regions in South Africa, which
two years ago were only visited by
a few Furopcan explorers and hunt
ers, arc now about to bo traversed
in all directions by prospecting parl
ies looking for gold mines. These
regions are near both Jlio east and
west coasts, extend far inland, and
stretch north and .south from the
Zambesi to tho rich mines now de
veloping in the southern part of tho
Two years ago, when the Ger
mans took Angra Pecpteua, on the
southwest coast, under their protec
tion, the world wondered what they
could find among the wastes of Na
maqua Land to tempt them to that
desolate region. the Germans
themselves thought the country was
hardly worth holding, but an enthu
siast had set up a trading station
there, and his Government was seiz
ing upon almost any pretext to ac
quire territory anywhcic. Now,
every mail from Angra Pequcna
brings surprising news of the rich
ness of the new gold fields in that
region. The cable two days ago
gave the testimony of three men,
who say tho diggers at Otyinibingue
are astonished at the richness of the
gold veins, and believe they will
prove more valuable than the Aus
. A South African mining company
is now equipping several parties
who are instructed to prospect sys
tematically the large region from
Victoria Falls, on the Zambesi, to
the Limpapo Eiver, about 110,000
square miles. This is the northern
part of Bechuanaiand, recently ap
propriated by Great Britain, and
the scene of Livingstone's eaily
wanderings. East of this region is
Mashonaland, where the natives fill
quills with the gold dust they wash
out of Uiq soil of dricd-up river
beds. The present prospect is that
a few years more will furnish con
vinciug proof that the gold regions
of South Africa surpass in extent,
'and in some localities equal in rich
ness, the best aurifeious districts of
The regions here mentioned are
wholly outside the Transvaal, in
whoso mountains big mining towns
arc rising. The days of MO ate
now repeated among the African
Drakenbergs. The explorations of
the past fifteen years indicate that
Africa may become a very useful
continent after all. New York

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 Suerwick, Shetland
Islands. He says that some time
ago an old woman, named Barbara
Smith, came under the notice of the
Board. She was extremely ill, and
it did not look likely that she would
long need care of any kind. She
did nbt reside on the main land, bit1,
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. Tj. 'octCer ami rnbie
prospocaS''9ays she had in some
rfay laid the foundation for Chronic
Indigestion and Dyspepsia, and out
of this had sprung other complaints
as age and bodily infirmities crept
apace 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 hereto use good judgment in
respect to her own situation and
state of health. Although she had
long suffered from asthma and a
bronchial affection, Barbaia was
wise enough to see that these ail
ments arose from the disordered
stomach and digestion, and that if
the main trouble could be cured tho
others would soon leave her. It is
probable that her disease began as
others do, with the usual symptoms :
headaches, bad breath, the rising of
sour fluids in the throat, oppression
and faintness at tho 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 years, but to no
effect. In this strait she oue day
made the following touching appeal
to the Inspector; "I havo been
swallowing medicines for months.
They do mo no good. I am going
on from worse to worse, I can en
dure it po longer. I feel that in n
week or two 1 shall be dead. Thcrti
is one last request 1 would make of
you: give me a bottle of Mother
Seigel's Curative Syrup; it is my
only hope. If it proves a failure
and docs me no good 1 will die in
peace, and make no more expense
to tho palish."
It seems she had got hold of one
of Mother Seigel's Almanacks and
read of the great cures wrought by
the Syrup in cases like hers.
The Board pitied the poor lone
woman and granted her petition, be
lieving, however, the syrup would
prove as useless as the other medi
cines she had already taken. What
was their astonishment to find, in the
course of a few days, that she had
not only been able to get out of bed,
but to move about outside the house,
and had taken journeys to a consid
urable distance, and was actually en
joying better health than since she
was first taken ill. The asthma and
bronchitis, which wcie no more than
symptoms of her true disease (indi
gestion and dyspepsia), rapidly
abated, and it now seems that 13ni
bara will soon be as hale and hearty
as the Inspector himself, and be one
of the hosts of living witnesses to
the power of Mother Seigel's Syrup
to save the thousands who were just
ready to perish.

cine vendors, ajid by the proprie

A REMARKABLE CASE.
Under the above heading the
Doncastcr Reporter of July Cth,
1887, publishes tho following in its
Our renders may recall tho cir
cumstance of a young clerk, named
Arthur Ricliold, falling insensible
on the Wcatley Lane in this town
some time ago, and being picked
up, as he continued perfectly help
less, and taken in n. cab by two
gentlemen to tliu ofllce of F. AV.
Fisher, Esq ; the solicitor who em
ployed him. On restoring him to
consciousness it was ascertained
that he was allicted with what
seemed to be an inctirablo disease.
"When he was able to speak he
said ho had been to his dinner and
and was on his way back to his
work, when suddenly his head was
iu a whirl and he fell in the street
like a man who is knocked down.
On coming to his senses iu the soli
citor's olllce lie thought what this
might mean, and feared ho was
going to havo a lit of illness, which
we nil know is a very 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 lie had been
attacked. They questioned him
and found that his picsent malady
was exhaustion of thu nervous sys
tem resulting from general debility,
indigestion, and dyspepsia of n
chronic nature. This in turn hu'd
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 described
by Mr. Ricliold, must bo of inter
est both to sick and well. . He had
noticed for several years previously,
in fact, that his eyes and face be
gan to have a yellow look; there
was a sticky and unpleasant slime
on the gums and teeth iu the
morning; the tongue coated; and
the bowels so bound and costive
that it induced that most painful
and tioublcsomc ailment the piles.
He says there was some -pain in
tho sides and back and a sense of
fulness on the right side, as though
the liver were enlarging, which
proved to be the terrible fact.
The secretions fioin the kidneys
would be scanty and high-coloured,
with a kind of gritty or sandy
deposit after standing.
These tilings had troubled Mr.
Ricliold a long time, and after his
fall in the street he clearly perceived
that the fit of giddiness was nothing
more than a sign of the .steadly
and deadly advance of the complaint,
w inch began in digestion and dys
pepsia. His story of how he went
from one physician to another in
search of a cure that Ins wife and
little ones might not come to want is
very pathetic and touching. Finally
he became too ill lo keep his situa
tion and had to give it up. This
was a sad calamity. He was appall
ed to think how he should be able to
live. But God raised up friends
who helped to keep the wolf from
the door. He then went to the sea
side at Walton-on-the-Naze, but
neither the change, nor the phy
sicians who trentcd him there, did
any good. All being without avail
he visited London, with a sort of
vague hope that some advantago
might happen to him in the metro
polis. This was in October, 1885.
How wonderful, indeed, are the
ways of Providence, which dashes
down our highest hopes and then
helps us when we least expect it.
. While in London he stated his con.
dilion to a friend, who strongly ad
vised him to try a mediciuo which ho
called 3other Seigel's Curative
Syrup, saying it was genuine and
honest, and often cured when every
thing else had failed. JIo bought
a bottle of a chemist in Pimlico, and
began using it according to the di
rections. He did this without faith
or hope, and the public, may there
fore judge of his surprise and plea
sure when after faking a few doses
lie felt great relief. IIo could cat
better ; his food distressed him less ;
tho symptoms we have named 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 lie tried to walk. So en
couraged .vas he now that ho kept
on using Mother Seigel's Curative
Syrup until it ended' in completely
In speaking of his wonderful re
covery Mr. Ricliold says it made
him think of poor Robinson Crusoe,
and liis deliverance fiom captivity
on his island in the sea; and added,
"But for Mother Seigel's Curativo
Syiup tho grass would now bo
glowing over my grave."
Our readers can lest assured of
of the strict truth of all the state
ments in this" most remarkable case,
as Mr. Ricliold (now residing at
Swiss Cottage, Walton-on-the-Nazo)
belongs to one of tho oldest and
most respected families in tho beau
tiful village of Long Meiford,
Suffolk, and his personal character
is attested by so high an authority
as the Rev, C. J. Martyn, rector
of that paiish, besides other excel
lent names. Wo havo deemed the
case of such inportance to tho pub
lic as to justify us in giving this
