OLDEST'Or THE SCIENCES.
Metallurgy is Iho oldest of the
sciences. It was born in the efforts
of thc'nlchcmisls to transmute metals
into gold, and lins conic down
.through the ceuturics less changed
than any other science. While the
earliest records are not full and
complete, the allocs mado in thoso
old ages, and the slags found about
some of the oldest vforkshops dis
covered, some of them dating back
to the age of Moses, 6how pretty
clearly what the metallurgical
methods of those days were, and
show that they were much the
same as the methods now in use.
The slags give proof that lime was
used as it is used now and that
sulphur was a buglicar as it is now.
"What advances ha c been made have
been more of a mechanical nature
than in the way of discovering new
laws or principles of chemistry.
AN INTERESTING ENGINEERINC JOB.
A very interesting engineering job
is in progress at the New England
Railroad bridge over the Connecti
cut, just north of Hartford. The
new steel bridge is to stand exactly
where the old wooden one is and the
problem to most people was how the
job was to bo done without interfer
ing with trains. First the transpor
tation company sent a tug and pile
driver to the spot and drove a lot of
of big piles, those under the eastern
span going thirty feet into the river
bed and being fifty feet long. Above
these piles temporary work was built
to support the track which was built
up higher than it used to be. Then
the trusses ot the old bridge were
lcmovod in sections and the old
roadway remained, held up by the
piles and temporarj- work. Jt had
been raised enough to leave a space
where it used to "be, and here the
roadway of the steel bridge is being
put in. Thus the steel bridge is
built right in the place of the wooden
one, and when it is done all that
remains will be to remove the ele
vated wooden track bed and let the
trains run on the new bridge. The
steel bridge will rest temporarily on
the piling till its trusses are in place.
POPULATION OF NEW ZEALAND.
The census of New Zealand was
taken on the night of Sunday, the
28th of March, 188G.
According to the oflicial returns
the population of the colony, exclu
sive of Maoris, was 578,482, or, add
ing the natives and halfcastes who
amount to 41,!)G9 the grand total
was G2Gyl51. The males consider
ably outnumbered the females, as
in all newly-developed countries.
There arc 7-1 "boroughs" in the
colony, but only 1 of these exceeds
30,000 in population, while 9 have
less than 500 inhabitants each.
Auckland has largely increased,
"Tellington(has slightly advanced,
Christcuurch is stationary and Du
ncdin has slightly -decreased.
" There arc 197 "towns" in New
Zealand, but 82 of them have less
thru 100 inhabitants, while Dovon
port, the most populous, has only
2950 inhabitants. Throughout the
whole colony there arc only 55G1
square miles. Out of the whole po
pulation of New Zealand 51.89 per
cent , arc native born, 21.72 come
irom England, 9.48 from Scotland,
8.89 from Ireland and 0.34 from
Wale. "With respect to education
73.52 are able to read and write,
4.77 able to read only, 21.05 unable
to do either. It is calculated that
only about 2.G per cent of the chil
dren of the compulsory school age
arc being wholly neglected. The
native races in New Zealand are de
creasing while these of the Euro
pean slock are multiplying. Lon

A REMARKABLE CASE.
Under the abovo heading the
Doncastcr Reporter of July Gth,
1887. miblishcs the following in its
Our readers may lccall the cir
cumstance of a young clerk, named
Arthur Iiichold, falling insensible
on the Wcatley Lane in this town
some time ago, nnd being .picked
up, as he continued perfectly help
less, and taken in a cab by two
gentlemen to the olllco of F. W.
Fisher, Esq; the solicitor who cm
ployed him. On lcstoriug him to
conseioumess it was ascertained
that ho was allicted with what
seemed to be an iucuiablo disease.
When he was able to apeak ho
said hc'hnd been to his dinner and
and was on his way back to his
woik, 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 senses in the soli
citor's olllco he thought what this
might mean, and feared lie was
going to have a fit of illness, which
we all Know is a very aroauiiu
thing 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 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 coming on
of this strange disease, as dcsciibcd
by Mr. Eichold, must bo of inter
est both to sick and well. lie 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; tfie tongue coated; and
the bowels so bound and costive
that it induced that most painful
and tioublesomc ailment the piles.
He says there was some pain in
the sides and back and a sense of
fulness on I he right side, as though
the 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 sandy
deposit after standing.
These things had troubled Mr.
Riehold a long time, and after his
fall in the streot he clearly perceived
that the fit of giddiness was nothing
more than a sign fit 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 the phy
sicians who treated him there, did
auy 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 the
ways of Providence, which dashes
down our highest hopes and then
helps us when we least expect it.
Wlnlc in London he stated his con
dition to a fiiend, who strongly ad
vised him to try a medicine which he
called Mother SciijeV 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, lie did tliis without faitli
or hope, and the public, may there
fore judge of his surpiise and plea
suic when after taking a few doses
he felt gieat relief. lie could cat
better; his food distressed him less;
tho symptoms we have named abated ;
the dark spots which had floated
before his eyes like smuts of soot,
gradually disappeaicd, and his
strength increased. Ileforc this
time his knees would knock together
whenever he tried to walk. So en
couraged .viis he now that he kept
on using Mother Stiyel's Curative
Syrup until it ended in completely
In speaking of his wonderful re
covery Mr. Iiichold says it made
him think of poor llobinson Crusoe,
and his deliverance from captivity
on his island in the sea; and added,
"Hut for Mother Seigcl's Curative
Syrup tho grass would now be
growing over my grave."
Our readers can lest assured of
of the strict truth of all the state
ments in this most remarkable case,
as Mr. Iiichold (now residing at
Swiss Cottage, Walton-on-the-Naze)
belongs to ono of tho oldest and
most respected families in the beau
tiful villape of Long Melford,
Suffolk, and his personal character
is attested by so high an authority
as tho Ilev. C. J. Martyn, rector
of that paiifah, besides ollfer excel
lent names. Wo have deemed the
case of such iuporlauco to the pub
lic as to justify us in giving this
short account of it in our columns.

Many people believe that Nnturc
lins somewhere a remedy for every
disease. So many and so terrible
nro tho ills of life, and so slight tho
pleasure wo get ns time flics past,
that such a belief Is the least faith
wo can show in a gracious and all
wise Providence. A few remedies
but, alas, how fowl have been
found. Others, so fnr, lie hidden
from human inquiry. Occasionally
death follows quickly on tho heels of
the evil an illustration of the dan
gerous character of tho ailment to
For example, Nervous Dyspepsia
is. a comparatively uto 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 loft 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 nnd nutrition. They
reasoned thus : "If we can induce
the stomach to do its work, nnd
stimulate the excretive organs to
drive out of the body the poisonous
waste matters which remain after
the life-giving elements of tho food
have been absoibcd, we shall have
conquered Nervous Dj'spepsia and
Nervous Exhaustion." And they
were light. Knowing the infallible
power of Sicgcl's Syrup in less com
plicated though similar diseases,
they resolved to test it fulh' in this.
To leave no ground for doubt, they
prescribed the remedy in hundreds
of cases which had bceii 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 bo
called a peculiarly English disease.
To a greater or less extent half the
people of this country suffer from it
botli 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 hcadacho ; a dull pain at the
base of the brain ; bad breath ;
nauseous eructations ; the rising of
sour and pungcut fluids lo 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 coated
tongue ; dull eyes ; cold hands and
fectf; 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
Siegel'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
system 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. Tho weak and prostrated
nerves are quieted, toned, and fed
by the purified blood. As the re
sult, health, with its enjoyments,
blessings and power, returns to the
suffeier, who has perhaps abandoned
all hopo of ever seeing another well
