A FAR-OFF GLIMPSE OF JENNY LIND.
"What remember in my bib-nnd-tuckcr
(toys, and at the house
of an Iriih llishop where I was a
visitor. Jenny Lind had come to
spend (lie Sunday, and had been to
church twice before the 0 o'clock
dinnor. I did not nee her until
dessert, and thought when I first
saw her head across a table orna
ment that she Mas a lndy about
Uoi'ty. She looked very like those
itiue'-ant musicians who give open
air concerts in summer at watering
places, and had the kind of fair hair
in which there is little or no gold.
Thcie was something, very staid,
composed and stiong-miuded in her
mien and general appearance, and
she was entirely different in char
acter from all other members of the
company. Her manners were dis
tantat least, so 1 thought but
they did not lepel, and I remember
watching her at a dislanco in the
hope of catching her eye and being
asked to go and stand beside her;
but I did not succeed. Her dress
was of brown silk, of a hue then
called 'Loudon smoke,' and plain in
' the skirt, but made with a gathered
body. From what 1 recollect of her
demeanor, she must have been con
centrated, and, though she talked
with ease, she did not show a con
versational disposition. I hcaid it
said that she was very earnest, and
had deci) religious fceiiner, and now
fancy that the remark was justified.
After dinner she was to sing from
the "Melodia Sacra." Some young
ladies and a few male vocalists, who
belonged to the organ-loft of a
cathedral, improvised a concert with
her. She did not want to be pressed.
I was too young to be an analyst of
,a voice, or to know why one pleased
inc. But? this 1 remember, that
Jenny Lind afforded me a new and
delicious sensation. Her singing so
affected ine that I burst out crying,
and as it was thought that 1 cried
because I was sleepy, I was (being
too shamefaced to explain my feel
ings) sent to bed.
There was so little sleepiness in
me, and I was so vexed at the sum
mary judgment passed upon me,
that I went on crying in my cot.
Jenny Lind, at the hour when the
company was to go away, came into
the room where I was. She saw me
wide awake, and asked me if I was
the little sleepy child; then came
over to me and whispered, "Why
do vou cry?" 1 put my arms
around her neck and answered,
"Because your voice is so nice."
She laughed and said, that can't be.
We only cry when things are ugly
and unpleasant." I, thinking she
considered me a little fibster, cried
again and then was able to get out:
" 'The Babes in the Wood' is very
nice to read, yet it makes rne cry
so fearfully that giandmamma has
taken it from me and locked it up."
Jenny Lind said: "You're a dear
child. When I come back I'll bring
you such a pretty toy and sing on
purpose for you." She never did
come back, and so I never got the
toy. I heard her years after at a
concert. The earnestness and con
ccntiatiou had hardened into sever
ity. But there was beautiful emo
tion behind the voice. It had lost a
note hcie and there, but where it
was intact it was silvery beyond ex
pression. Loudon Truth.
HOW SENATOR SAWYER "COT HIM
SELF IN A BOX."
Gossip among politicians who
spent their Chi istmas in New York
has pointed to Senator Sawyer as
the principal one of three or four
Republicans who may vote for the
confirmation of Mr. Lamar as Jus
tice of the Supreme Court. Senator
Sawyer acknowledges to his con
freres in the Senate, that to use a
popular phrase, "he has got himself
into a box," although ho by no
means considcts himself committed
to vote for the confirmation. The
peculiar circumstances of his posi
tion are incident to the Picsident's
trip through the West and North
west last summer. Senator Sawyer
was present at a dinner given to the
Piesident while lie was in Wiscon
sin. His elbow companion was Postmaster-General
Vilas, to whom the
Senator incidentally said in the
course of the dinner :
"1 understand that the President
contemplates appointing Mr. Lamar
to the Supreme Bench, and giving
the Interior Department to j'oti.
That will be a good thing, and I
hope he will do it."
Said Gcneial Vilas in return :
"If you leally think so, why don't
you say as much to the President'''"
Every one who knows the blunt,
rough, good nature of Senator Saw
yer will appreciate the foicc with
which ho answered, "1 will."
After a little time he got up from
his seat and went over to the Presi
sident's chair and said to iiim :
"Mr. President,' I hear that you
think of putting Mr. Lamar on the
Supreme Bench. Why don't you
"Could he be confirmed if I
bliould appoint him?" was the Pre
sident's guarded, and Quaker-like
"I think so," said tho Senator.
"Indeed, I know so. Myself and
my colleague, I think, would vole
for confirmation." This closed tho
conversation, and while Senator
Sawyer docs not regard it as bind
ing, ho feels himself placed in a pe
culiarly cmbarassing position. TN.

A REMARKABLE CASE.
Uudcr the above heading the
JDoncasler Reporter of July Gth,
1887. publishes tho followinc in its
Our renders, may recall tho cir
cumstance of n young clcik, named
Aithur Richold, falling insensible
on the Wcatley Lane in this town
some time ago, and being picked
up, as ho continued perfectly help
less, and taken in a cab by two
gentlemen to the otllce of F. W.
Fisher, Esq; tho solicitor who em
ployed him. On restoring him to
consciousness it was ascertained
that he was atlicted with what
seemed to bo an incurable disease.
When he was able to speak he
said he had been to his dinner and
and was on his way back to his
work, when suddenly his head was
in a whirl and ho fell in the street
like a man who is knocked down.
On coming to his benses in the soli
citor's office lie thought what this
might mean, and feared he was
going to have a iit of illness, which
we all know is a very dreadful
thiug for a poor man with a family
to care for.
With this in his mind he at once
sought the best medical advice,
telling the doctors how he had been
attacked. They questioned him
and found that his picsent malady
was exhaustion of the nervous sys
tem resulting fiotn general debility,
indigestion, and dyspepsia of a
chionic 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 stiange disease, as described
by Mr. Richold, must be of inter
est both to sick and well. He had
noticed for several years previously,
iu fact, that his eyes and face be
gan to have a yellow look; theie
wa3 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 and a fcensc of
fulness on the right side, as though
tho liver weic 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 tioabled 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 tho 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
search of a cine that his wife and
little ones might not come to want is
very pathetic and touching. Finally
he became loo ill to keep his situa
tion and had to give it up. This
was a sad calamity. lie 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 then went to tho sea
side at Walton-on-the-Nazc, 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
vague hope that some 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 Loudon he stated his con
dition to a friend, who stiongly ad
vised him to" try a medicine which he
called Mother JSeiyrl's 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 accoiding to the di
rections. He did this without faitli
or hope, and the public, may there
fore judge of his surpiise and plea
sure when after taking a few doses
he felt great relief. He could cat
better; his food distressed him less;
the symptoms wo have named abated ;
tho dark spots which had floated
before his eyes like smuts of soot,
gradually disappeaied, and his
strength increased. Before this
time his knees would knock together
whenever he tiicd to walk. So en
couraged .as he now that ho kept
on using Mother Saicl's Uuratioe
Syrup until it ended in completely
In speaking of his wonderful ie-
eovery Mr. lucliobl says it made
him think of poor Robinson Crusoe,
and his ..deliverance fiom captivity
on Ids island in the sea; and added,
"But lor Mother Seigel'a Curative
Syrup the grass would now be
growing over my grave."
Our readers can lest assured of
of the strict tuilh of all the state
ments in this most lemprkable case,
as Mr. Richold (now residing at
Swiss Cottage, Wulton-on-the-Naze)
belongs to one of the oldest and
most respected families in the beau
tiful village of Long Melford,
Suffolk, aiid his personal character
is attested by so high an authority
as the Ilev.C. J. Maityn, lector
of that parish, besides other excel
lent names. We have deemed the
case of such inportance to tho pub
lic a to justify us in giving this
short account ot it in our columns.

Many people believe Unit Nature
lias boincnhcro n remedy for every
disease. Ho niniiy and so terrible
are tho ills of life, nnd so slight tho
pleasitro wo get as timo (lies past,
that such u belief is the lenst faith
we can show in n gracious and all
wise I'rovidencc. A few remedies
but, nlas, how Towl liavo been
found. Others, so far, lie hidden
from human inquiry. Occasionally
death follows quickly on tho heels of
the evil an illustration of tho dan
gerous character of the ailment to
For example, Nervous Dyspepsia
is a comparatively m?u disense,
gtowing out of the conditions of
modern life. Ii is a joint uffection
of the digestive organs and of the
nervous system. These two were
formerly treated as separate ail
ments, and it was loft for the clear
sighted thinkers to prove that tho
basis of this terrible and often fatal
complication lies chiefly in tho dis
ordered and depraved functions of
digestion and nutrition. They
reasoned thus: "If wc can induce
the stomach to do its work, and
stimulate thu excretive organs to
drive out of the body the poisonous
waste matters which remain after
the life-giving elements of tho food
Inn e been absorbed, we shall have
conqucied Nervous Dyspepsia and
Nervous Exhaustion." And they
were light. Knowing the infallible
power of Siegel'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 pionouneed
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 from 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 headache; a dull pain at the
base of the brain ; bad breath ;
nauseous eructations ; the rising of
sour and pungent iluids to the
throat; a sense of oppression and
faintness at the pit of the stomach,
ilatulencc; 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 coated
tongue ; dull eyes ; celd hands and
fcctT; constipation; dry or rough
skin ; inability to fix the mind on
any labour or calling continuous at
tention ; and oppressive and sad
foiebodings and fear.
All this terrible group Mother
Siegel's Cinativc 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
system are sent upon their mission,
while all waste matters (the ashes of
life's lite) which, unremoved poison
and kill, are expelled from the body
through the bowels, kidneys, and
skiii. The weak and prostrated
nerves are quieted, toned, aud fed
by the punned blood. As the re
sult, health, with its enjoyments,
blessings and power, returns to tho
suffeier, who has perhaps abandoned
all hope of ever seeing another well
