A PRIEST'S REVENGE.
Mr. Trollopo tells n very Biugular
Btory told by Blanco White. A priest
was condemned at Sevillo to capital
punishment. That the public might
bo properly impressed, market day
wasscloctcd for the purpose. To
bo degraded from his sacerdotal
character ho had to pass through the
market place, while tho powers
deemed inherent in tho priesthood
wero still in his possession. Undc
graded as yet and unrepentant, ho
dealt a malicious blow at the people
assembled to witness bis degrada
tion. "Suddenly, in the market
place, ho stretched out his arm, and
pronounced with a loud voice tho
uncancellable sacramental words,
Hoc est corpus. All the contents of
that vast ma93 weie instantaneously
transubstantiated I All the food in
Seville was forthwith unavailable for
any baser than euchaiistic purposes,
and Seville had to abservc tho vin
dictive priest's last day on eailh as
n very vigorous fast day." Temple
POOLS ON THE VICES.
"You know," said ho "that New
Year's day is n great sweating off
time. Probably 5,000 persons in
Buffalo alone have made up their
minds to give up smoking chewing,
drinking, swearing, gambling and
other vices, great or small, on the
1st of January. What most of
these good-resolve men most need is
something at stake as an incentive
to keep their self-pledges. Now, I
, am going to turn reformer's assist
ant. I'm going to sell pools on the
different vices at $5 each. All those
fellows who swear off on smoking,
on paying me $5 can enter the smok
ing pool. The same with those who
intend to stop swearing. Likewise
those who intend to turn teetotalers.
Each list will be kept in a sepatato
book, and a printed slip of the
names furnished to an' one who
wants it. When good evidence is
brought to me that a good resolution
has been broken, off goes the name
from the books. At the end of six
months the fellows who have stuck
it through shall have the money,
share and share alike. Buffalo
VARIETIES OF THE SOCIAL BLUNDERER.
One is he who blandly inquires
after tho (late) husband and hopes
he is well, as he has not seen him
lately ; or after the divorced lady,
whoso presence he looks around
him vacantly to espy. He then re
marks on her absence, and inquires
with feverish energy after her
health. He it is -v ho asks after the
runaway daughter, or the scapegrace
son, whose name is never mentioned
at homo, or recalls with a visible ef
fort the name of the person he is
addressing, and then mangles or
mispronounces it. He remarks on
a girl's ill looks to her mother, and
discovers the fact when he has done
so, or else puts his foot into it too
deeply for extrication or apology.
lie like-minded also who observes,
for example, that her ladyship's
dross is cut too low to her indignant
lord, whom he mistook on entering
for the butler, and then apologized
on the ground that such had been
his impression. Such folk are not
generally popular. They mean no
harm, but achieve a good deal.
Sufferers are too apt to suppose
some malice in their mistakes, of
which they are for the most part
quite innocent. They certainly re
peat overheard remarks to tho wrong
people. They read fragments of
letters aloud, and blurt out pieces
of information tkey were bound to
keep quiet; or they involve them
selves deeply in explanations, and
apologize to ,you for things they
inadvertently uttered as to your
character or prospects, which fill
you with dismay. The society they
adorn would gladly, if it could, ex
terminate ; but they invariably pre
sume a welcome, and disport them
selves with a ilattering assurance,
only to plunge deeper into the
slough of blundering, from which it
is often impossible to extricate them.
A PAUPER'S DYING BEQUEST.
An amusing and yet pathetic in
cident in what the poet Gray called
" the short and simple annals of
tho 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 tho main land, bnl
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. Tho trouble
from which sho suffered dated back
many years. In better and more
prosperous days she had in some
way laid tho foundation for Chronio
Indigestion and Dyspepsia, and out
of this had sprung other complaints
as age and bodily infirmities crept
apneo upon her.
Barbara was not ignorant, albeit
she had fallen into povetty. In ear
lier life sho somehow obtained tho
advantago of a fair education, and
this, added to native Burowdness,
enabled her to use good judgment in
respect to her own situation and
stale of health. Although she had
long suffered from asthma and a
bronchial affection, Barbara was
wiso enough to seo that these ail
ments arose from tho disordered
stomach and digestion, and that if
the main trouble could bo cured the
others would soon leave her. It is
probable that her disease began as
others do, with tho 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 tho mouth,
&c, and Anally 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 one day
made the following touching appeal
to the Inspector: "I have been
swallowing medicines for months.
They do me 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 me 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
peace, and make no more expense
to the patish."
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 hors.
The Board pitied the poor lone
woman and granted hor petition, be
lieving, however, the sytup would
prove as useless as the other medi
cines she had already takcu. 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 journej's to a consid
erable distance, and was actually en
joying better health than since she
was first taken ill. The asthma and
bronchitis, which wei e 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 Seigel's Syrup
to save the thousands who were just
ready to perish.

A HEMARKADLE CASE.
Under the nbovo heading the
JDoncaster Jicporter of July Gtli,
1887, publishes tho following in its
Our readers may recall tho cir
cumstance of a young clerk, named
Arthur Kichold, falling inscnsiblo
on tho "Wcatloy Lime in this town
soino timo ago, nnd being picked
up, as ho continued perfectly help
less, nnd taken in a cab by two
gentlemen to tho ofllco of F. "W.
Fisher, Esq; tho lolloitor who em
ployed him. On restoring him to
consciousness it was ascertained
that he was afliclcd with what
seemed to be an incurable disease.
When he was nblo to speak he
said he had been to his dinner and
and was on his way back to his
work, when sucdonly his head was
in a whirl and he fell in the street
like a ninu who is knocked down.
On coming to his senses in the soli
citor's ofllco he thought what this
might mean, apd feared he was
going to havo a fit of illness, which
wo nil know is a very dreadful
thing for a poor man with a family
to care for.
With this in his mind ho at once
sought tho best medical advice.
telling the doctors how he had been
attacked. They questioned him
and found that his present malady
was exhaustion of tho 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 dpscribed
by Mr. Richold, 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; there
was a sticky and unpleasant slimo
on the gums nnd teeth in the
morning; the tongue coated; and
the bowels so 'bound and costive
that it induced that most painful
and troublesome ailment the piles.
He says there was some pain in
the sides nnd back and' a sense of
fulness on the right side, as though
tho liver were 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 fit of giddiness was nothing
more than a, sign of the steadly
'and deadly advancoof the complaint,
which began in digestion and dys
pepsia. His story of how he went
from one physician to another in
search of a cure that his wife and
little ones might not come to want i3
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 ijp friends
who helped to keep the wolf from
the door. He then wentito the sea
side at Walton-on-the-Naze, but
naither the change, nor the phy
sicians who treated him there, .did
any good. All being without avail
he visited Lon'don, with a sort of
vague hope that soma 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 a friend, who strongly ad
vised him to try a medicine which ho
called brother .Seigel's Curative
Syrup, saying it was genuine nnd
houest, and often cured when every
thing else had failed. He bought
a bottle of a chemist in Bimlico, 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 taking a few doses
he felt great relief. He 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 was he now that he kept
on using Mother Seigel's Curative
Syrup until it ended in completely
In speaking of his wonderful re-'
covery Mr. Richold says it made
him think of poor Robinson Crusoo,
and his deliverance fiom captivity
on his island in the sea; and. added,
"But for Mother Seigel's Curative
Syrup tho grass would now bo
growing over my grave."
Our readers can rest assured of
of tho strict truth of all the state
ments in this most remarkable case,
ns Jlr. Richold (now residing at
Swiss Cottage, Walton-on-the-Nazo)
belongs to ono of the oldest and
most respected families in tho beau
tiful village of Long Mclford,
Suffolk, and his personal character
is attested by so high an authority
as tho Rev. C. J. Martyn, reotor
of that parish, besides other excel
lent names. We have deemed the
case of such inportance to the pub
lic ai to justify us in giving this
short account of it in our columns,
