A REVOLUTIONARY HERO.
Ono of the hordes of tlio Revolu
tion, whoso deeds arc not recorded
in history, was William Goff of Gray,
Maine. '"When news came of the
battle of Lexington ho was chopp
ing wood, with his gun conveniently
near him, ready for tiny stray game
that might appear, lie at onco
dropped his ax, picked up his gun,
stopped at his home n minute to bid
his wife good-by, went to a neigh
bor's and borrowed some bullet
molds, run what lead ho had into
bullets and walked to Cambridge,
getting there just in season for the
battle of Bunker Hill. When asked
after tho battle in what company he
was enrolled, he promptly replied,,
"William Goff's." Ho continued
to serve his country until 1777,
when he fell at the battle- of

AN INVENTOR'S REMARKABLE CLAIM.
An invention is announced which,
if the accounts given of it are free
from any very gross exaggeration,
must work a revolution in the ap
plicability and in the cost of
mechanical-motor power. The in
ventor avers that he can i educe the
ordinary demand for boiler space by
no less than 90 per cent 1 Tlic me
thod proposed is the substitution of
a small copper boiler for the largo
iron boilers now in use. A cylinder
of copper of fifteen inches in dia
meter and twenty inches long lias a
hemispherical cnd,iu which aic plac
ed loose pieces of broken copper.
At the opposite end of the vessels
two pipes are introduced one lo
lead in the water, the other to lead
out the steam. Through the first
pipe water is forced so as to spread
in a fine spiay over the broken cop
per, which, it is said, immediately
converts it into steam. Various de
vices have been tried with the view'
of utilizing steam in the manner
proposed, but hitherto without suc
cess. The efforts heretofore, we
believe, have been confined to the
production of the steam within the
cylinder. In the above case a small
boiler is used with a capacitj' of
meiely producing a sullicicnt quan
tity of steam lo move the piston
once through the cylinder at a single
discharge or injection. Mining

A NEW JOKE BYEVARTS.
Speaking of George Washington
always reminds mo of that good
story of how Evarta told Lord Cole
ridge when they were at Mount Ver
non the legend of Washington
throwing a dollar across the Rappa
hannock. "But," objected Cole
ridge, "the Rappahannock's a broad
stream." "Yes," retorted Evarts,
"but you must remember that a dol
lar went further in those days."
At a dinner party not long ago
Evarts was chaffed a little about
the many stories attributed to him
by the newspapers and incidently
this one was praised as his best.
"Oh," said Evarts modestly, "I
don't say all the good things that
arc credited to me. Every now and
then sonic anonymous newspaper
paragrapher says a wittier thing
than any of us. How, what I might
hare said to Lord Coleridge was
that it was not so strange that
George Washington thiow a dollar
across a river since he threw a
sovereign across the sea." That
was certainly as bright as the other.
let Evarts begins to show the ef
fects of his seventy years. He re
peats himself. He has got off that
witty remark originally presented to
the Clover Club, that like some
other great enterprises lie lacked
terminal facilities, half a dozen
times. I am afraid he will never be

Pastor Erinckcr, a missionar',
writes from Otyimbingue, South
Africa, under date September 13th,
that live gold diggers had arrived
there from Australia in the preced
ing month in search of gold. Two
were sons of an Englishman who,
thirty-three years ago, found gold
at the old copper mines at Otyim
bingue. They have been saving
money for a long time in order to
9 prosecute the search fuither, and
they soon found the scene of the
former discovery. The missionary
says the diggers arc astonished at
tho richness of tho vein.
"The lumps of gold," he says,
"may be seen with the naked eye.
Mr. Goring, the Imperial Commis
sioner, believes that millions of
marks' worth are lying at this one
place. The spot is below Ahnawood,
eight hours hence, in a sort of
island in tho bed of the Tsoakoub.
There is more water than is desired,
for the diggers scent alluvial gold
in the bed of tho stream. Accord
ing to the evidence of those experi
enced men the placo is richer than
any in Australia. And now tho
gold hunt is going to begin."
In the view of this gentleman it
would only bo possible to work tho
veins by means of dynamite and
stamping machines, so bhat com
panies will be required having at
command considerable capital. The
Elberllcid Mission reports that gold
has also been found in four places
between thiity and forty English
miles below Otyimbingue. London

POISON IN THE ASHES.
Many people believe that Nature
has somewhere a remedy for every
disease So many and so terrible
are tho ills of life, and so slight the
pleasure we get as time ilics past,
that such a belief is the least faith
wc can show in a gracious and alt
wise Providence. A few remedies
but, alas, how fowl have been
found. Others, no far, Ho hidden
from human inquiry. Occasionally
death follows quickly on tho hcets of
the evil an illustration of tho dan
gerous character of tho ailment to
For example, Nervous Dyspepsia
is u comparatively new disease,
growing out of the conditions of
modem life. It is a joint affection
of the digestive organs and of the
nervous system. These two were
formerly treated as separate ail
ments, and it was left for tho clear
sighted thinkers to prove that the
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 we can induce
the 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, we shall have
conquered Nervous Dyspepsia and
Nervous Exhaustion." And they
were light. Knowing the infallible
power of Sicgcl's Syrup in less com
plicated though similar diseases,
they resolved lo test it fully in this.
To leave no ground for doubt, they
prescribed the remedy in. hundred's
of cases which had been pronounced
incurable with perfect success in
every instance where their directions
as to living and diet were scrupu
lously followed. Nervous Dyspep
sia and Exhaustion may almost be
called a peculiarly English disease.
To a greater or less extent half the
people of this country suffer fiom it
botli sexes and all ages. In no
country in the world arc there so
many insane asylums filled to over
flowing, all resulting from this
alarming disease. Its leading symp
toms are 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 even when
weak from the need of it; sticky
and slimy matter on the teeth or in
the mouth, especially on rising in
the morning; furred and coaled
tongue ; dull eyes ; cold hands and
feet; 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.

A REMARKABLE CASE.
Under tho above heading tho
Doncatstcr Reporter of July Gth,
1887, publishes tho following in its
Our readers mny recall the cir
cumstance of a young clerk, named
Arthur Richold, falling inscnsiblo
on tho "VVcatloy Lane in this town
some time ngo, and being picked
up, as ho continued perfectly help
less, and taken in a cab by tno
gentlemen to the ofllco of F. W.
Fisher, Esq; tho solicitor who em
ployed him.' On restoring him to
consciousness it was ascertained
that lie was nflicted with what
seemed to be an incurablo disease.
When he was able to speak ho
said he had been to his dinner and
and win on his way back to his
work, when suddenly his head was
in a whirl and he fell in the street
like a man who is knocked down.
On coming to his tenses in tho .soli
citor's of lice he thought what this
might mean, and feared ho was
going to havo a fit of illness, which
wc all know is a very dreadful
thing for a poor man with a family
to caro for.
With this in his mind ho at onco
sought the best medical advice,
telling the doctors how ho had 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 coining on
of this strange disease, as described
by Mr. Richold, must be of inter
est both lo sick and well. He had
noticed for several years previously,
in fact, that his eyes and face be
gan to have a j-ellow look; thero
was a sticky and unpleasant slime
on the gums and teeth" in the
morning ; tho 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 aud 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 Bandy
deposit after stauding.
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 to another in
scaich of a cure that his wife and
little ones might not come lo want is
very pathetic and touching. Finally
he became too ill lo 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. Ho then went to tho bea
sido at Walton-on-the-Nazc, hut
neither the change, nor the phy
sicians who treated hint 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, arc tho
ways of Providence, which dashes
down our highest hopes and then
helps us when wo least expect it.
While in Loudon he stated his con
dition to a fiiend, who strongly ad
vised him to try a medicine which he
called Mother iSeiyrl'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 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. Ho could cat
better ; his food distressed him less ;
tho symptoms we have named abated ;
tho dark spots which had floated
before his eyes like smuts of soot,
gradually disappeared, and his
strength increased. Before , this
timo his knees would knock together
whenever he tried to walk. So en
couraged .vas he now that he kept
on using Mother A'eiyel't Curative
Syrup until it ended in completely
Iu speaking of his wonderful re
covery Mr. Richold says it made
him think of poor Robinson Crusoe,
and his deliverance from captivity
ou his island iu the sea; and added,
"But for Mother Soigel's Curative
Syrup the grass would now be
growing over my grave."
Our readers can rest assured of
of the strict truth of all tho state
ments in this most remarkable case,
as Mr. behold (now residing at
Swiss Cottage, Walton-on-the-nzo)
belongs to ono of tho oldest and
most respected families in tho beau
tiful village of Long Melford,
Suffolk, and his pergonal character
is attested by so high an authority
as tho Rev. C. J. Murtyn, Tcctor
of that parish, besides other excel
lent names. Wc hayo deemed tho
case of such inportnncc to tho pub
lic as to justify us iu giving this
short Account of it in our columns.
