A CAVE WONDER.
Chicago, Deo. 2C Tho Dally
News, Bloomdold, Ivy., special oi
December 20th says: J. A. Allen
of this place, while excavating n
foundation for his new grist-mill,
struck the dome of a cavern of im
mense proportions, from which a
strong current of cold air issued
with great force as the woikmcn
made the opening. Torches wcio
procured and Mr. Allen and Mr.
Gainhurst were loVercd down by
means of a windlass. It was about
sixty feet fiom tho surface to the
floor of the cave, which they found
to be level and sandy, as if it were
once the bed of an ancient subter
ranean str"eam. They followed the
main avenue for a distance of over
two miles, and discovered an open
ing in a cliff on the farm of Benja
min Wilson, and a well-beaten path
was easily discerned that was once
trod by human beings, although it
is now, in many places, covered
with forest trees and undergrowth.
Mr. Allen and Mr. Gainhurst, af
ter emerging from the cave, started
back to town and reported the re
sult of their discoveries. A large
party was at once founcd, which en
tered the opening of the cliff on the
Wilson farm. On one of the main
avenues .numerous evidences ex
isted that the place had evidently
been the abode of cae men, as nu
merous relics were found in the
shape of pottery and bionzc bric-a-brac.
A sepulcher was discocred
in a large niche on ouc avenuo at
right angles with the main avenue,
and in it are numerous mummified
bodies, one hundred or more being
in plain i icw.
Three of the mummies weie re
moved to town, where they excite
great cuiiosity. The formations in
the cave are beautiful beyond des
cription. Stately towers of stalag
mites, suggestive of grotesque and
unique liguics, arc encountered all
along the wonderful subterranean
avenue. There is a beautiful little
lake with water as pure as crystal,
and, as usual in cave streams, it is
full of tiny, eyeless fish. The ave
nues of tho cave will measure, in all
probability, about seven miles, so
that it may fairly be considered
another rival to the Mammoth Cave,
and certainly one of the great cave
wonders of Kentucky, the land of
A little three-year-old Rocklander
went into a market last week and
helping herself to a green pepper,
tried to eat it. After she had failod
the maikctman asked her what the
matter was with the fruit, and she
replied between sobs: "Dcrc was a
bumblebee in it. " TN. Y. Woild.
Jessie's teacher gave her pupils a
party at which "little brother" was
invited. He ate heartily of ice
cream and cake and was found ic-
posiug on the bench in a poich
while the other children were at
play in the yard. When asked why
he didn't join them, he exclaimed:
"Oh, I can't play ; my pants choke
me so. Youth's Companion.
A PAUPER'S DYING REQUEST.
An amusing and yet pathetic in
cident in w hat the poet Gray called
" the short and simple annals of
the poor," is told by Mr. John J. R.
Micklejohn, 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, and
it did not look likely that she would
long need care of any kind. She
did not reside on the main land, bu
on a small island a few miles distant
and there being no parochial institu
tions in tha place, Barbara ncces
saiily occupied the position of a
pauper living out. The trouble
from which she suffered dated back
many years. In better and mote
prosperous days she had in some
way laid the foundation for Chionic
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 poverty. 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
rcspocf to her own situation and
state of health. Although she had
long suffered from asthma and a
bronchial affection, Barbara was
wise enough to see that theso ail
ments arose from the disordered
stomach and digestion, and that if
the mam trouble could be cured the
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
the sour Hinds in throat, oppression
and famtness at tho pit of the stom
ach, loss of sleep, coated tongue,
dull eyes, bad tasto in the mouth,
&ot, and finally became chronic and
hopeless through her not being able
to Jind any lemedy. Tho Inspector
suites that she had been under med
ical treatment for years, but to no
effect. In this strait she one day
raado tho following touching appeal
to the Inspector: "I have been
swallowing medicines for months.
They do mo no good. I am going
on from worso lo worse. I can en
dure it no longer. I feel that in a
week or two 1 shall be dead. There
is one last request I would mnko of
you: give me a boltlo of Mother
Scigcl'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 the palish."
It seems she had got hold of one
of Mother Scigcl's Almanacks and
read of the great cuies wrought by
thcSyrup in cases like hers.
The Board pitied the poor lone
woman and granted her petition, be
lieving, however, tho 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 joutneys to a considr
erable distance, and was actually on
iovinc better health than since she
was fust taken ill. The asthma and
bionchitis, which were 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 hearty
as the Inspector himself, and be one
of the hosts of living witnesses to
the power of Mother Seigcl's Syrup
to save the thousands who were just
ready to perish.

A REMARKAULE CASE.
Under the above heading the
JJojKwlcr licparlcr of July Oth,
1887, publishes tho following in it?
Our renders niny recall the cir
cuinstniice of a young clerk, named
Arthur Kichold, falling insensible
on the Wcatley Lanu in this town
some time ngo, mid bciiig picked
up, as ho continued perfectly help
less, and taken in a cab by two
gentlemen to tho olllcc of P. W.
Pi9her, E9q; tho solicitor who em
ployed him. Oil restoiing him to
consciousness it was ascertained
that he was aflicted with what
seemed to be nil incurable disease.
When he wa9 able to speak ho
said ho haij been to his dinner and
and was on his way back to his
work, when suddenly his head was
in a whirl and he fell in the street
like a liiiiu who is knocked down.
On coming lo his senses in the soli
citor's olllce ho thought what this,
might mean, and feared ho was
going to havo.n Jit of illness, which
wo all 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 tho best medical advice,
telling the doctors how he hnd been
attacked. They questioned him
and found that 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 described
by Mr. Iiichold, must be 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; thcic
was a sticky and unpleasant slime
on the gums and teetii in the
morning ; the tongue coaled ; and
the bowels so bound and costivo
that it induced that most painful
and troublesome ailment the piles.
He says' there was some pain in
the 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.
Ihe 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 fit of giddiness was nothing
more than a sign of the stcadly
and deadly advance of the complaint,
which began in digestion and dys
pepsia. His story of how he went
from one physician lo 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 bs 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 treated him there, did
any good. All being without avail
he visited London, with a sort of
vague hope that some advantage
might happen to him in the metro
polis. This was in October, 1885.
How wonderful, indeed, are tho
ways of Providence, which dashes
down our highest hopes and then
helns us when we least expect it.
While in London he stated his con
dition to a friend, who strongly ad
vised him to try a medicine which he
called Mother Seifel'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 Pimlico, and
began using it nccoiding 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 taking a few doses
ho felt great relief. Ho could cat
better ; his food distressed him less ;
the 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 he tried to walk. So en
couraged -.vns he now that he kept
on using Mother Seiyel's Curative
Syrup until it ended in completely
In sppaking of his wonderful re
covery Mr. Richold says it made
him think of poor lidbiusou Crusoe,
nnd his deliverance fiom captivity
on his island in tho sea; and added,
"But for Mothor Soigel's Curative
Syrup the grass would now bo
growing over my gravo."
Our readers can rest assured of
of tho strict truth of all tho state
ments iu this most remarkable case,
as Mr. Richold '(now residing atk
Swiss Cottage, Walton-on-thc-Nnzb)
belongs to one of tho oldest and
most respected families m tho beau- ,
tif ill villape of Long Melford,
Suffolk, and his personal character
is attested by so high an authority
as tho Rev. C. J. Martyn, rector
of that parish, besides other excel
lent names. We have deemed tho
enso of such iiiportanco to tho pub
lic as to justify us in giving this
short account of it in our columns,
