JIlS 8TIUNC1K IDEAS AS TO THE SEPARA
TION OP SOUI. l'llOM 110DY.
In conversation tlio other day a
gcntlcmnn well known In IhcoBophl
cnl circles, informed tlio writer with
a sincerity of conviction quite un
mistakable that he had himself fre
quently succeeded in projecting his
"astral body" for so ho called It
to places thousands of miles distant.
Though comparatively speaking an
amateur in this mysterious nrt, he
had on one occasion recently, sent
his spookical representative on board
ot a ship COO leagues from land to
visit a friend, concerning whose
safety on the ocean he was anxious.
But this was nothing. A practical
expert in the science, he declared,
could dispatch his spiritual entity
for such the astral body seems to
be, rather than a mere phantasm
to the confines of the Infinite ; could
travel on the wings of thought from
planet to planet, and view with in
corporeal eye the awful mechanism
of the universe.
"But why should not even you
employ the power you possess for
some useful purpose?" I asked.
"Why not project your astral body,
as 3011 term it, into the bowels of
the earth and discover a few mines
of gold and diamonds? Compared
with the riches j'ou might so readily
grasp, the wealth of a Thrce-Card-Monte
Crislo is as nothing."
A gentlo smile overspread the
countenance of my thcosophic ac
quaintance. 'My dear sir," he re
plied, "you littlo understand the
conditions under which the faculty
we speak of is acquired. Only
through the cultivation of a purity
of mind, untouched by selfish or
material ambitions, may the would
be diciple of the divine Mahatmas
hope to grasp at length the ineffable
secret. Should I apply the limited
power I enjoy to such base uses, it
would leave rae. Na', more. I
should myself be exposed to the
utmost danger. I have reason to
believe that fatal accidents not in
frequently occur to rash explorers
in the mysterious realm of the be
yond. My own astral body, let us
say, is absent in South Africa. While
on its travels it is tempted, and not
being as yet entirely cleansed from
the soil of earthly passion it suc
cumbs. Subsequently it seeks to
re-enter my corporeal frame, but
cannot, by reason of its unworthi
ness, and in consequence of this
misfortune I perish physically."
"But what becomes of your
spritual entity?" I inquired, much
"I would rather not go more
deeply into the subject," he re
sponded, and there the matter drop
ped. I have been wondering ever
since, however, what would happen
if a couple of wandering spooks
should change places upon return
ing to their owners. What remark
able complications such an error
would occasion, to be sure? The
case of Dr. Jckyll and Mr. Hyde
would be nothing to it. Daily Alta
The proprietor of the St. Louis
drug store where Maxwell bought
the chloroform with which to kill
Prcller says : "If I should live 100
years old i have no doubt that some
day a man would come in here, and
after buying a tooth-brush or a cake
of soap that he didn't want, loiter
around for a few minutes and then
Bay : 'This is the place where Max
well got his chloroform, isn't it?'
and then expect me to tell the whole
story of the Prellcr murder. I have
got it down as fine now as a-guide in
the museum of the old country has
his little historical speech. I can't
complain, though, for the episode
with Maxwell has brought many a
dollar to my purse. It would not
be exaggerating to say that nt least
2,000 people, mosth strangers, have
dropped into my store and paved
the way iuto their inquiries by mak
ing a purchase by way of peace
offering, since the day thatPreller's
body was found in the trunk at the
Southern Hotel." "Chicago News.
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. B.
Micklcjohn, one of the Inspectors
of tho Poor, at Sherwick, Shetland
Islands. IIo says that some time
ago an old woman, named Barbara
Smith, came under tho 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, bit'
on a small island a few miles distant
and there being no parochial institu
tions in that place, Barbara neces
sarily occupied tho position of a
pauper living out. The trouble
from which sho suffered dated back
many years. In better and more
prosperous days sho had in some
way laid tho foundation for Chronio
Indigestion and Dyspepsia, and out
of this had sprung other complaints
iib ago and bodily infirmities crept
apace upon her.
Barbara was not ignorant, albeit
he had fallen into poverty. In ear
lier life she somehow obtained the
advantage of a fair education, and
this, added to nativo shrewdness,
enabled her to use good judgment in
respect 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 those ail
ments aroso from the disordered
stomach and digestion, and that if
the main trouble could bo cured tho
others would soon leave her. It is
probable that her disease began as
others do, with the usual symptoms :
headaches, bad brsath, the rising of
tho sour fluids in throat, oppression
and faiutness at the pit of the stom
ach, loss of sleep, coated tongue',
dull eyes, bad taste in the mouth,
&c, nud finally became chronic and
hopeless through her not being able
to find any remedy. The Inspector
statss that she had been under med
ical treatment for years, but to no
effeot. In this strait she one day
made the following touching appeal
to the Inspector: "I have been
swallowing medicines for months.
JLncy uo me no gooil. 1 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
Seigcl's Curative Syrup; it is my
only hope. If it proves a failure
and .does me no good 1 will die in
pcaoc, and make no more expense
to the parish."
It seems she had got hold of one
of Mother ScigePs 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
erable distance, and was actually en
joying better health than since she
was first taken ill. The asthma and
bronchitis, which were no more than
sj'mptoms 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 REMARKABLE CASE.
Under tho above heading the
Doncastcr Reporter of July 0th,
1887, publishes the following in its
Our readers may recall the cir
cumstance of a young clerk, named
Arthur Kichold, falling insonslblo
on tho AVcatloy Lano in this town
some timo ago, nnd being picked
up, as he continued perfectly help
less, nnd taken in a cab by two
gentlemen to tho oQlco of F. W.
Fisher, Ueq; tho sollaitor who em
ployed him. On restoring him to
consciousness it was ascertained
that lie was aQicted with what
seemed to be an incurable disease.
When he was nbla to speak he
said ho had beau to his dinner aud
and waa on his way back to his
work, when suddenly his head was
iu a whirl aud ho fell in tho street
like a man who is knocked down.
On coming to his senses in tho soli
citor's ofllco ho thought what this
might mcau, and feared he was
going to havo 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 bis mind ho at once
sought tho best medical advice,
telling the doctors how ho had bcen
attacked. They questioned liim
and found that his present malady
was exhaustion of the nervous sys
tem resulting from general debility,
indigestian, 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 diseaso, as described
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 slime
on the gums and 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 and back aqd a sense,, of
fulness on the right side,. as though
the liver were enlarging, which
proved to be tho" terrible fact.
The secretions from the kidneys
would be scanty and high-coloured,
with a kind of gritty or sandy
deposit after standing.
Theso 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 advance of 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 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. lie then went to the sea
side at Walton-on-the-Naze, but
neither the change, nor tho phy
sicians who 'treated him there, did
any good. All being without avail
ho visited London, with a sort of
vague hope that somo 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
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 w.hich ho
called Mother Seifel'a Curative
Syrup, saying it was genuine and
honest, and often cured when every
thing else had failed. lie bought
a bottle of a chemist in Pimlico, and
began using it according to the di
rections. IIo did this without faith
or hopo, and tho public, may there
fore judge of his surprise and plea
sure when after taking a few doses
he felt great Telicf. He could cat
better ; his food distressed him less ;
the symptoms wo have named abated ;
the dark spots which had floated
before his eyes like smuts of soot,
gradually disappeared, and his
strength increased. Before this
timo his knees would knook- together
whonever he tried to walk. Hoen
couraged was he now that he kVjt
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 Crusoe,
and his delivcranco from captivity
ou his island in the sea; and added,
"But for Mother Seigcl's Curative
Syrup the grass would now bo
growing ovor my grave."
Our readers can' rest assured of
of tho strict truth of all the state
ments in this most remorkable case,
as Mr. Richold (now residing at
Swiss Cottage, Walton-on-the-Naze)
belongs to one of the oldest and
most respected families in tho beau
tiful village of Long Melford,
Suffolk, and hia personal character
is attested by so high an authority
as tho Rev. C. J. Martyn, rector
of that parish, besides other excel
lent limnes, We havo deemed the
case of such inportanco to tho pttb
lio a to justify us in giving this
short account of it in our columns.
