A HINDOO JEWELER AT WORK.
Ono of my companions, haviug
made a bargain with the smith,
handed him three English llorins
J; which lie desired to have mnnufae
" tnred into one bangle of the choicest
East Indian design and workman
ship. The coolie man heated the
coins, cut them into narrow pieces,
of which he welded' the ends to
gether, using hammer and anvil,
thus making a bar four or live inches
long, and, as I remember, two or
three lines in width and thickness.
Covering one end of this strip of
metal with damp clay, to protect his
lingers from the heat, the bangle
maker stuck the silver into the dim
inutive charcoal lire, which he set
aglow by blowing through a tube
similar in appearance to a glass
blower's pipe. When the metal was
at a dull red heat he beat it soundly,
forging it round and smooth to the
diameter of telegraph wire; then,
carefully bending it in a circle,
joined the two ends, welding them
together neatly and with dispatch.
This done, and the joint having
been covered with a rough mass of
hot silver fashioned into a ball of
the size of a small cherry, the Hin
doo held out the half-finished tiinkct
for our .inspection and appioval. He
next smoothed and polished the sur
face of the ball by hammering ; then
he graved and stamped it with
various dies, cutting simple, con
ventional patterns of irregular de
sign. Next, having selected a small
silver serpent from an assortment of
ready-made devices and charms
which he kept in a cocoanut shell,
he plunged it into the fire and blew
through his blow-pipe until the cobra
became blood red. Pinching the
reptile's tail between bits of moist
clay, the Hindoo drew it from the
lire, and, before it lost its angry
hue, deftly cork-screwed the em
blem of immortality around the wire
of the bangle in four complete coils,
all the time tapping the snake here
and there gently with his mallet, in
this way fastening it securely in its
place. Plunging the ornament into
a calabash of cocoanut oil, he waited
till the serpent ceased hissing, and
the Indian bracelet was then ready
to be clasped on the wrist of whom
soever the gallant gentleman had in
his mind when lie found it in his
heart to give the order for it.
"Down the Islands: A Voyage to
the Caribees," by "William Agncw
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.
Micklejohn, one of the Inspectors
of the Poor, at Sherwick, 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 not reside on the main land, bu
on a small island a few mile3 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 she had in some
way 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 npt 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
resp'ect 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 these ail
ments arose from the disordered
stomach and digestion, and that if
the main 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 fluids in throat, oppression
and fatntness 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 years, hut to no
effect. In this strait she one day
made the following touching appeal
to the Inspector: "I have been
swallowing medicines for months.
They do mo no good. I am going
on from worse to worse. I can en
dure it no longer. I feel that in a
week or two I shall be dead. There
is one last request I would make of
you: give mo a bottle of Mother
Seigel's Curative Syrup; it is my
only hope. If it proves a failure
and does me no good I will die in
pcaco, and make no more expense
to the parish."
' It seems she had got hold of ono
pf Mother Seigel's Almanacks anil
rend of the great cures wrought by
the Syrup in cases like hers.
The Board pitied the poor lone
woman and granted her petition, be
Hoving, 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
erable distance, and was actually en
joying belter health than since sho
was first taken ill. The asthma and
bronchitis, which were no more than
symptoms of her true disease (indi
gestion and dyspepsia), rapidly
abated, and it now secni3 that Bar
bara will soon be as hale and hearty
as the Inspector himself, and bo one
of the hosts of livinc witnesses to
the power of Mother Scigcl's Syrup
to save the thousands who were just
ready to perish.

A REMARKABLE CASE.
Under the above heading tho
JDoncastcr Iteporler of July Gth,
1887, publishes tho following in its
Our readers may recall tho cir
cumstanco of a young clerk, named
Arthur Richold, falling insensible
on the Vcatley Lano in this town
sonic time ago, and being picked
up, as lie continued perfectly help
less, aud taken in a cab by two
gentlemen to the otllco of F. W.
Fisher, Esq ; the solicitor who em
ployed him. On restoring him to
consciousness it was ascertained
thai he was afllctcd with what
seemed to be an incurable disease.
When he was able to speak he
said he had 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 nitin who is knocked down.
On coming to his senses in the soli
citor's oillco ho thought what this
might mean, and feared ho was
going to have a fit of illness, which
we nil know is a very dreadful
thing for a poor man with a family
to caro for.
With this in his mind he at once
sought tho best medical advice,
telling the doctors how lie had be'en
attacked. They questioned him
and found that his present malady
was exhaustion of the nervous sys
tem resulting from general debiljty,
iudigestian, 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. Tho coming on
of this strange disease, as described
by Mr. Richold, must be of inter
est both to sick aud well.' Ho had
noticed for several years previously,
in fact, that his eyes and face be
gan to have a yellow look; theie
was a sticky and unpleasant slime
on the gums and teeth in the
morning ; the tongue coated ; and
the bowels so bouud and costive
that it induced that most painful
and troublesome 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 bo 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 crearly perceived
that the fit of giddiness was nothing
more than a sign 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
seaich 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. 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 wf nt to the sea
side at Walton-on-fhe-Nazc, 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 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
dition to a friend, who strongly ad
vised him to try a medicine which ho
called Mother oeigel's (Jurative
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 according to. the di
rections. Ho 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
he felt great relief. Ho could eat
better ; his food distressed him less ;
tho symptoms we hayc 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. Ho en
couraged was ho now that he kept
on using Mother tieigec's Vuraltve
Syrup until it ended in completely
In speaking of his wonderful re
covery Mr. Richold says t made
him think of poor Robinson Crusoe,
and his deliverance fiom captivity
ou hia island in the sea ; and added,
"But for Mother Seigel's Curative
Syrup tho grass would now bo
growing oyer my grave."
- Our readers can rest assured of
of tho strict truth of all the state
ments in this most remprkablo case,
as Mr. Richold (now residing at
Swiss Cottage, Walton-on-the-Nazo)
belongs to orto of tho oldest nnd
most respected families in tho beau
tiful village 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 havo deemed the
caso of such inportance to tho pub
lic as to justify us in giving this
short account of it in our columns,
