HIDDEN IN TREES.
Some woodcutters in the forest of
Dro dialing mndo ft straugo discovery.
They began to fell a venerable oak,
which tlioy Boon fouml lo.be quite
hollow. llcitig half decayed it
speedily came to the ground with a
crash, disclosing a skeleton in ex
cellent preservation ; even tho boots,
which came above the knee, were
perfect. By its side were a powder
horn, a porcelain pipe-bowl and a
silver watch. Tho teeth were per
fect. It would seem to bo tho
skeleton of a man between thirty
and foity years of age. It is con
jectured that while engaged in hunt
ing he climbed the ti ce for some pur
pose and slipped into tho hollow
ttunk from which there was no re
lease, and ho probably died of star
vation. Another mystery was found
in the heart of an oak. From a tree
of this kind a largo block, about 18
inches in diameter, that had been
knocking about in various yards and
woodsheds, was split up lately, and
in it was found an augur-holo about
three-fourths of an inch in size, con
taining a buuch of human hair done
up in a piece of printed paper. Tho
hair was near the centre of tho
block and fastened in with a pine
plug. It was apparently put in
when the tree was quite small, as
the tree had grown over the plug to
the thickness of about four inches,
with the grain perfectly smooth and
A natural curiosity was shown in
a timber merchant's workshop. This
was tho nest and skeleton of a bird
imbedded in a piece of beech. The
The timber seemed quite sound all
round the cavity, and there was no
sign of any aperture into it, but the
timber being sawed up, the nest
with the bird sitting upon it was
found. .The nest appeared to be
built with mud, and the bird re
sembled a titmouse. Probably at
the lopping of a branch a cavity was
formed, and the outside subsequent
ly grown over; but how the bird
was enclosed seems difficult to im
agine. In the centre of a log of Hondu
ras mahogany the saw revealed a
large piece of honeycomb. The
finder says tho wax with the cells
was hard, and resembled in color
the appearance of a mummy. The
remains of the bees were incrusted
iii thejwax. Another log of ma
hogany was being cut in veneer by
a cabinet maker, when his attention
was attracted by the appearance of
a remarkable and striking profile of
her majesty in a knot in the wood.
The likeness was so true that all who
saw it acknowledged the resembl
ance. Had this curiosity only been
discovered in the present year we
might have had jubilee mahogany
added to the never ending list of
of articles so distinguished.
So often have toads- been found
inclosed in solid bodies that it is not
surprising to read in a Scottish
paper that a servant, while breaking
a large piece of coal for the fire, was
startled to find in the center of the
block a full-grown toad, which ap
peared to be in excellent health and
spirits. A Jess common discovery
was made in Birkenhead. A gentle
man there was presented with a
cow's tongue, which appeared to be
perfect in every respect. After the
tongue was b'oiled he discovered a
piece of sandstone imbeded in it
about three-quarters of an inch in
length, half an inch in width and a
quarter of an inch in thickness.

A REMAHKABLE CASE.
Under tho above heading tho
Do, istcr Jleporlor of July Gtli,
188 publishos the following in its
Our readers may recall the cir
cumstance of a young clerk, named
Arthur Richold, falling insensible
on tho "Wcallcy 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 olllco of F. W.
Fisher, Esq; the solicitor who em
pffij'cd him. On restoring him to
consciousness it was ascertained
that he was allictcd with what
seemed to bo an incurable- disease.
Vhon he was able to speak he
said he had boon to his dinner and
and was on his way back to his
work, when suddenly his head was
in a whirl and he fell in tho street
like a man who is knocked down.
On coming to his senses in tho soli
citor's ofllec he thought what this
might mean, and feared he was
going to have a fit 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 he at once
sought the best medical advice,
telling the doctors how he had been
attacked. They questioned him
and found that his piesent malady
was exhaustion of the nervous sys
tem resulting from general debility,
indigestion, and dyspepsia of a
chronic nature. f 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 ilcsciibcd
by Mr. Richold, must be of inter
est both to sick and well. Ho had
noticed for several years previously,
in fact, that his eyes and face be
gan to nave a ycnow iook; ineie
was a sticky and unpleasant slime
on the gums and teeth m
morning; the tongue coated;
the tongue coated; nnd
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 ..nd back and a sense of
fulness on the right side, as though
the liver weie enlarging, which
proved 'Ho 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 Ills
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. Ilis 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. lie was appall
ed to think how he should be able to
live. Rut God raised up friends
who helped to keep the wolf from
the door. He then went to the sea
side at "Walton-on-thc-Nazc, but
neither the change, nor tho 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 liiin 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.
"While in London lie stated his con
dition to a friend, who strongly ad
vised him to tryn medicine which he
called Jirother Seigel'tt 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 this without faith
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 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
timo his knees would knock together
whenever he tried to walk. So en
couraged -vas he now that he kopt
on using Mother fieigel'a Curative
tSyrup until it ended in completely
In speaking of his wonderful re
covery Mr. Richold says it made
him think of poor Robinson Crusoe,
and his deliverance fiom captivity
on his island in the sea; and added,
"But for Mother Scigel's Curative
Syrup tho grass would now bo
glowing over ray grave."
Our readers can rest assured of
of tho strict truth of all the state
ments in this most rcmprkablo case,
as Mr. Richold (now residing at
Swiss Cottage, "Walton-on-the-Naze)
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 authoiity
as tho Rev. C. J. Mailyn, rector
of that paiish, besides other excel
lent names. We have deemed Hie
case of biich iuportauce to the pub
lic as to justify us in giving this
short account of it in our columns.

Many people believe that Nature
has somc'vlicro a remedy for every
disease. So manv and so terrible
arc tho ills of life, and so Blight tho
pleasure vc get as timo flies past,
that audi a belief is tho least faith
wc can show in a g'rncious nnd all
wiso Providence, A few remedies
but, alas, how fowl havo been
found. Others, so far, ho hidden
from human inquiry. Occasionally
death follows quickly on tho heels of
the evil an illustration of the dan
gerous character of the ailment to
For example, Nervous Dyspepsia
is n comparatively new disease,
growing out of tho conditions of
modern life. It is a joint affection
of tho digestive organs and of the
nervous system. These two wcro
formerly treated as separate nil-
incuts, and it was left for the clear
sighted thinkers to prove that the
basis of this terrible and often fatal
complication1 lies chiefly in tho dis
ordered and depraved functions of
digestion and nutrition. They
reasoned thus : "If we can induce
tho stomach to do its work, and
stimulate the excretive organs to
drive out of tho body tho poisonous
waste matters which remain after
tho life-giving elements of tho food
have been absorbed, we shnll havo
conquered Nervous Dyspepsia and
Nervous Exhaustion." And they
wero right. Knowing tho infallible
power of Siegcl's Syrup in less com
plicated though similar diseases,
tbey 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 were scrupu
lously followed. Nervous Dyspep
sia and Exhaustion may almost bo
called a peculiarly English disease.
To a greater or less extent half tho
people of this country suffer from it
both sexes and all ages. In no
country in the nvorld are there so
many insane asylums filled to over
flowing, all resulting from this
alarming disease. Its leading symp
toms nro 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 tho stomach,
flatulence ; wakefulness and loss of
sleep; disgust with food even 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 eye's ; cold hands and
feet; constipation; dry or rough
skiu; 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
Bj-stem arc 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 bowols, kidneys, and
skin. The weak and prostrated
nerves are quieted, toned, and fed
by the purified blood. As the re
sult, health, wilh its enjoyments,
blessings and power, returns to tho
sufferer, who has perhaps abandoned
all hopo of ever seeing another well
