" THE KIN'O'S BOIir (WAlltJ Or 100 HAND-
somh wown wAnmons.
Among Uic visitors to Uio London
cxumtion lias been tho young
Friririb of Siam, brothor to the king.
Ho is a little man, but lias an olive
complexion mid black eyes, speaks
English perfectly, nnd has charming
manners. As an example of one of
the good results of the American ex
hibition, during his visit ho made a
most careiul inspection of the goods
in the main building' and spent
thousands of dollars on all the use
ful things he saw which were up to
the present timo unknown to Siam.
He gave an order for 100 typewrit
ers to one manufacturer, a larger
order for safes to anothor, ordered
four dozen carpet sweepers, a steam
engine, and a number of other inge
nious things which attracted his at
tention, so that these exhibitors
have tho satisfaction of knowing
that the hr .c opened a market for
'themselves in Siam at no greater ex
pense than going to the American
exhibition. The fashion having
been set by tho prince, large orders
for these goods he assured them
would follow; it would therefore
appear that the people in this coun
try, which very few of us stop to
realizo is twice as large in its area
as France, and has a population of
about 15,000,000 people, arc all
making rapid strides towards civili
zation. He gave us some curious informa
tion, however, about the king's
amazoiis, the Royal Guard being
compo'ed entirely of women. This
battalion consists of four hundred
women, chosen from among the
handsomest and most robrst gills in
the countty. Thoy receive good pay,
and their discipline is perfect. They
arc admitted to serve at the age of
13, and are placed in the army of
reserve at- the age of 2C. From
that period they no longer sene
about the King's person, but arc
employed to guard the royal palaces
and the crown hinds.
On entering the army the amazoiis
make a vow of chastity, for which
there is no exemption unless any of
them should attract the king's at
tention and be admitted among his
legitimate wives. The king's choice
seldom falls on the most bcaudful,
but on the most skilled in military
exercises. The costumes these
women wear is very rich. Their
full dress is composed of a white
woolen robe, cinbroidercd with gold.
The cloth is extremely fine and de
scends as far as the knee ; it is cov
ered with a light coat of mail and a
gilt cuirass. The arms arc free and
the head is covered with a gilt
casque. When iveaung this dress
on state occasions their only wea
pon is a lance, which they handle
with wonderful dexterity. With
their undress thej' are armed with a
musket. The battalion is composed
of four companies, and eacli com
pany of 100 women is commauded
by a captain of their own sex.
Should the captain die tiic company
is drilled during three days by the
king, who appoints the most com
petent to succeed to the command.
The king of Siam never under
takes any cxpediton without being
accompanied by his iemalc guard,
nor docs he ever hunt, or even ride,
without an'cscort of the same guard,
who arc devotedly attached to his
person. Every individual of the
battalion has five ncgresses attached
to her service, ard, having thus no
domestic occupation, she can devote
herself exclusively to the duties of
her profession. There is a parade
ground near the city, where one
company is stationed for two days
every week to exercise themselves
in the use of the lance, the pistol
and the rifle. The king attends
once a month at these exercises, ac
companied by his brother, who
shares in some degree the soveieign
power, and distributes prizes to the
most deserving. When the death
of one of the parties ensues the de
ceased receives a magnificent fune
ral, and the high priest pronounces
a panegyric declaring that the de
ceased by her valor, has merited
eternal rest in the abode of the bles
sed. The survivor receives the con
gratulates of her companions, but
as a measure of discipline, &he is
sentenced to pass two months away
from iier company, in fasting and
prayer. The military organization
of this battalion is so perfect that
the entire army endeavor to imitate
it. Chicago Tribune.
POISON IN THE ASHES."
Many pcoplo believe that Naturo
has somewhere a remedy for every
disease. So many and so terrible
are the ills of life, nnd so Might the
pleasure wo get as time flies past,
that such a belief is the least faith
we can show in a gracious and all
wise Providence. A few remedies
but, alas, how few I havo been
found. Others, so far, lie hidden
from human iunuir.v. Occasionally
death follows quickly on the heels of
tho evil an illustration of the dan
gerous character of the 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. These two were
formerly treated as separate ail
ments, and it was left for the 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 cau 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 right. Knowing the infallible
power of Siegol'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 pronounced
incurable with perfect success in
every instance where their directions
as to living and diet weic 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
both sexes and all ages. In no
country in the world are 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 headnche ; 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 oppiession 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; fuired and coated
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 PRESIDENT'S DAUGHTER.
A very remarkable story is told
in boarding school circles about Miss
Nellie Arthur, the daughter of the
late ex-President. She was at Mrs.
Lockwood's school, and had been
there a year when one day she was
missed by her little chums, who
crowded around the Principal after
the opening exercises to ask where
bUo bad gone.
"Where's Nell?" they said.
""Why, don't you know?" said
the lady. "Her father General
Arthur, died last night."
"was her lamer, uencrai Ar
thur?" all asked with one voice;
"was 8ho-tUe President's daugh
ter?" Miss Nellie bad never hinted nt
what moat girls would have told be
fore anything else. N, Y. Sun.

it isan undisputed fautthat mostsmokers
prefer a mild cigar and that those who

' A HEMARKADLE CASE.
Under tho nbovo heading tho
Doncastcr Jieporler of July Gtli,
1887, publishes tho following in its
Our readers may recall
cumstanco of a young clerk, named
Arthur Richold, fnlling insensible
on the Wcatlcy Lane in this town
eoiiio time ago, and being picked
up, as lie continued pcricctly help
less, and taken in n cab by two
gentlemen to the ofllce of F. W.
Fisher, Esq; the solicitor who cm
ployed. him. On restoring him lo
consciousness it was ascertained
that he was aflictcd with what
seemed to be an incurable disease.
When he was able to speak he
said he had been to his dinner and
nnd wai on his way back to his
work, when suddenly his head was
in a whirl and ho fell in the street
like a mail who is knocked down.
On coming to his senses in tho soli
citor's oHlce he thought what this
might mean, and feared he was
going to havo a lit of illness, which
wo all know is a very dreadful
thing for a poor man with a family
to care for. ,
With this in his mind he at onco
sought the best medical advice,
telling the doctors how he 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 bad
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. Richold, must be of inter
est both to sick and well. He had
noticed for several years previously,
in fact, that his ej'es 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 tonguo 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 side3 and back and 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.
These things had troubled Mr.
Richold a long time, and after his
fall in tho 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 ho went
from one physician to another in
seal ch 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. Ho 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 tho sea
sido at Walton-on-the-Naze, 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
Yaguo hope that some 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 iii London he stated his con
dition to a friend, who strongly ad
vised him to try a medicine which he
called Jlother beitrl's Uurative
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. He, did this without faith
or hope, and tho public, may there"
fore judge of his surprise and plea
sure when after taking a few doses
he felt great relief. lie could eat
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 Jlother ScigeVi 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,
aud his deliverance fiom captivity
on his island in the sea; and added,
"But for Mother Scigers Curative
Syrup the grass would now be
growing over my grave."
Our readers can rest assured of
of the strict truth of all the state
ments in this most remarkable case,
as Mr. Richold (now residing at
Swiss CoUage, Walton-on-the-Naze)
belongs to one of the oldest and
most respected families in the beau
tiful village of Long Melford,
Suffolk, and his personal character
is attested by so high a,n authority
as tho Rev. C. J. Martyn, rector
of that parish, besides other excel
lent names. We have deemed tho
caso of such inportanco to the pub
lio as to justify us in giving this
