IN OLD KENTUCKY.
Tho following loiter was written
in 18110 by George t D. rrentico,
founder of 'tho Louisville "Journal:"
Dear Sir: I linvo just witnessed a
strange thing a Kentucky elec
tion and am disposed to give you
an account of it. An election in
Kentucky lasts three days, and dur
ing that period whisky and tipple
toddy flow through out cities and
villages like the Euphrates in an
cient Babylon. I must do Lexing
ton tho justice to say that matters
weio conducted hero' with tolerable
propriety ; but at Frankfort, a place
which 1 bad the curiosity to visit on.
the last day of tho election, Jack
sonism and drunkenness stalked
triumphant "an unclean pair of
giants." A number of runners,
each with a whisky bottle poking its
long neck from his pocket were
busily employed bribing voters, and
each party kept half a dozen bullies
under pay, genuine specimens of
Kentucky alligatorism, to Hog every
poor fellow who should attempt to
votcjillcgally. A half a hundred of
mortar would scarcely 1111 up the
chinks of the skulls that were broken
on that occasion. I barely escaped
myself. One of the runners came
up to mo and, slapping mo on the
shoulder with his right hand and a
whisky bottle in his left, asked me
if I was a voter. "No," said 1.
"Ah, never mind," quoth the fel
low, pulling a corncob out of the
neck of the bottle and shaking it up
to the best advantage, "jest take a
swig at the cretur and toss in a vole
for old Hickory's boys I'll fight
for you, damme!" Here was a
tiTmptatipn, to be sure, but after
looking alternately at the bottle and
the bullies who were standing
rcuty witli their sledge-hammer
fists to knock down all interlopers,
my fears prevailed and I lost my
' whisky. Shortly after this I wit
nessed a figlit that would have done
honor to Mcndoza and 13ig Ben. A
great riillian looking scoundrel, with
arms like a pair of cables knotted at
the ends and a round black head
that looked like a forty-four-pound
cannon-shot, swaggered up to the
polls and threw in his bit of paper
and was walking off in triumph.
"Slop, friend," exclaimed one of
the Salt Kivcr Roaiers, stepping
deliberately up to him, "arc. you a
voter?" "Yes, by 1" replied
he of the Bullet Head. "That's a
lie!" rejoined the Koarer, "and you
must just prepare yourself to go
home an old man, for I'll be if I
don't knock you into the middle of
your ninety-ninth year." "Ay,
ay," replied the other, "come on
then; I'll ride you to hell, whipped
up with the sea sarpint!" They
had now reached an open space,
and the Salt river bully, shaking his
fist a moment by way of a feint,
dropped his chin suddenly upon his
bosom and pitched headforemost
toward the stomach of his antago
nist with the whole force of his
gigantic frame. Bullet Head, how
ever was on his guard, and, dodging
aside with the quickness of lightning
to avoid the shock, gave the assail
ant a blow that sent him stasrgeriiiK
against a whisky table, where he
fell to the ground amid the crash of
bottles, mugs and tumblers. No
thing daunted by this temporary
discomfiture, the bully gathered
himself up, and, with a single mut
tered curse, leuewed his place in
front of his foe. Several blows were
now given on bofrh sides with tre
mendous effect, and in a few mo
ments the Salt River boy, watching
his opportunity, repeated the maneu
ver iii which he had first been foiled
This time he was successful. His
head was planted directly in his
antagonist's stomach, who fell back
with such force that I had no ex-1
pectation of his ever rising again.
"Is the scoundrel done for?" in
quired the temporary victor, walk
ing up and looking down on his
prostrate foe. Bullet Head spoke
not, but with the bound of a wild
cat he leaped to his feet and grap
pled with his enemy. It was a trial
of strength, and the combatants
tugged and strained and foamed at
the mouth, and twined like serpents
around each other's bodies, till at
length the strength of the Bullet
Head prevailed and his opponent lay
struggling beneath him. "Gouge
him!" "Gouge him!" exclaimed
a dozen voices, and the topmost
combatant seized his victim by the
hair and was preparing to follow the
advico that was shouted in his ear
when tho prostrate man, roused by
desparation and exerting a strength
that seemed superhuman, caught his
assailant by the throat with a grasp
like that of fate. For a few mo
ments tho strugglo seemed to cease,
and then the face of the .throttled
man turned black, his tongue fell
out of his mouth and ho rolled to
the ground as senseless as a dead
man. I turned away a confirmed
believer in the doctiino of total
depravity. N. W. World.
POISON IN THE ASHES.
Many people believe that Nature
lias bomcwliero a remedy for every
disease. So mauy and so terrible
aro the ills of life, and so slight the
pleasure wc get as time Hies past,
that such a belief is the least faith
we can show in a gracious and all
wiso Providence. A few remedies
but, alas, how few I have been
found. Others, so far, Ho hidden
from human inquiry. Occasionally
death follows quickly on the heels of
tho evil an illustration of tho dan
gerous character of tho ailment to
For example, Nervous Dyspepsia
is a comparatively new disease,
growing out of the conditions of
modern life. It is a joint affection
of the digestive organs and of the
nervous system. Thcso two were
formerly treated as separate ail
ments, and it was left for tho clear
sighted thinkers to prove that tho
basis of this terrible and often fatal
complication lies chiefly in the dis
ordered and depraved functions of
digestion and nutrition. They
reasoned thus: "If wc can induce
tho stomach to do its work, and
stimulate the excretive organs to
drive out of the body the poisonous
waste matters which remain after
the life-giving elements of the food
have been absorbed, wc shall have
conquered Nervous Dyspepsia and
Nervous Exhaustion." And they
were right. Knowing the infallible
power of Siegcl's Syrup in less com
plicated though similar diseases,
they resolved to test it fully in this.
To leave no ground for doubt, they
prescribed the remedy in hundreds
of cases which had been pionounced
incurable with perfect success in
every instance where their directions
as to living and diet wore scrupu
lously followed. Nervous Dyspep
sia and Exhaustion may almost bo
called a peculiarly English disease.
To a greater or less extent half the
people of this country suffer fiom it
both sexes and all ages. In no
country in the world aro there so
many insane asylums filled to over
flowing, all resulting from this
alarming disease. Its leading symp
toms arc these; frequent or con
tinual headache; a dull pain at the
base of the brain ; bad breath ;
nauseous eructations ; the rising of
sour and pungent fluids to the
throat; a sense of oppression and
faintness at the pit of the stomach,
flatulence ; wakefulness and loss of
sleep ; disgust with food oven when
weak from tho need of it; sticky
and slimy matter on the teeth or in
the mouth, especially on rising in
the morning; furred and coated
tongue; dull eyes; cold hands and
fcetT; constipation ; dry or rough
skin ; inability to fix the mind on
any labour or calling continuous at
tention; and oppressive and sad
forebodings and fear.
All this terrible group Mother
Siegcl's Curative Syrup removes by
its positive, powerful, direct, yet
painless and gentle action upon the
functions of digestion and assimila
tion". Those elements of the food
that build up and strengthen the
83'stem are sent upon their mission,
while all waste matters (the ashes of
life's fire) which, unremoved poison
and kill, are expelled from the body
through the bowels, kidneys, and
skin. The weak and prostrated
nerves are quieted, toned, and fed
by the puiificd blood. As the re
sult, health, with its enj03'ments,
blessings and power, returns to the
sufferer, who lias perhaps abandoned
all hope of ever seeing another well

A REMARKABLE CASE.
Under Uio nbovo heading Uio
Doncastcr Reporter of July Clh,
1887, publishes the following in its
Our readers may recall tho cir
cumstance of a, young clerk, named '
Arthur Kichold, falling insensible
on tho'Wcatlcy Lane in this town
some time ngo, and being picked
up, us ho continued perfectly help
less, and taken in a cab by two
gentlemen to the ofllco of F. W.
Fishor, Esq; the solicitor 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 wns ablo to speak he
said he had been to his dinner and
and was on his way back to his
work, when suddenly Iiib head was
iii a whirl and ho fell in tho street
like a man who is knocked down.
On coming to his senses in tho soli
citor's oillco he thought What this
might mean, and feared he was
going to have a lit of illness, which
we all 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 the best medical advico,
telling tho doctors how he had been
attacked. They questioned liirn
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 bud
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. Kichold, must bo of inter
est botli to sick and well. He bad
noticed for several years previously,
in fact, that bis 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 tioublesome 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.
The secretions from tho kidneys
would be scanty and high-coloured,
with a kind of gritty or sandy
deposit after standing.
These things had troubled Mr.
Kichold 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 tho 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 witfftnd
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 tken went to the sea
side at Walton-on-thc-Naze, but
neither the change, nor the phy
sicians who treated him there, did
any good. All being without avail
ho visited London, with a sort of
vague hopo that somo advantage
might happen to him in the metro
polis. This was in October, 1885.
How wonderful, indeed, aro 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'which he
called Mother Seird'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 accotding 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. He could eat
better; his food distressed him less ;
the symptoms we havo named abated ;
the dark spots which had floated
beforohis eyes like smuts of soot,
gradually disappeared, and his
strength increased. Before this
timo his knees would knock together
whenever he tried to walk. Ho en
couraged was he now that ie kept
on using Mother Seigel't C'urgjive
Syrup until it ended in completely
curing him. 6
In speaking of his -wonderful re
covery Mr. Kichold says it made
him think of poor Robinson Crusoo,
and his deliverance from captivity
on his island in the sea ; and added,
"But for Mother Seigel's Curative
Syrup the" grass would now bo
glowing over ray grayo."
Our readers can rest assured of
of tho strict truth of all the state
ments in tins most tcmcrKame case
as Mr. Kichold (now residing
Swiss Cottage, Walton-on-the-Nazo)
belongs to ono of the oldest and
most respected families in tho beau
tiful village of Long Melford,
Suffolk, and his personal character
is attested by so high an authority
as the Kev. C, J, Martyn, rector
of that parish, besides other excel
lent names. Wo have deemed tho
case of such inporlanco to the pub
lic as to justify us in giving this
short account of it in our columns.
