THE SKELETON'S BRIDE.
A queer story comes from Bor
deaux. A woman who was well
known In Hie demi-monde, both in
Paris and tho Provinces, took a
fancy to a man called the '.'cham
pion skeleton," who was exhibiting
himself with a giant at a local fair.
The marriage ceremony was of the
first class order. The "atomy" and
his bride canio out in gorgeous ap
parel, and were accompanied to the
altar by all tho mountebanks of tho
fair, including tho giant, tho lovely
Circassian, the manager of the wax
works and the "artistes" of the
various itinerant temples of Thespis
The bride, an interesting female
24 years old, was given away by
her quondam protector, a personage
with a princely title and a plethoric
purse. He it was who paid tho
reckonings for the biidc's toilet, the
faultless evening suit and the laven
der kids of tlic "champion skeleton,"
the marriage ceremony, and tho
wedding breakfast. The church
was filled with llowcrs; a crimson
carpet was spread and the rice
thrown by admiring mountebanks
along the route of the bridal pro
cession. In the evening, after the
happy pair had departed for their
honeymoon, there was a banquet at
which fifty saltimbanqucs sat down.
This was succeeded by a bill, which
was unique of its kind, the bride's
former protector having given or
ders that no expense was to be
. spared in order to celebrate the
auspicious occasion in a befitting
manner. fLondon Daily Telegraph.

POISON IN THE ASHES.
Many people bclicvo that Nntu.ro
has somewhere a remedy for every
disease. So many and so terrible
nro the ills of life, and so slight tho
pleasure wo get as time flics past,
that such n belief is tho least faith
we can show in a gracious and all
wise Providence. A few remedies
but, alas, how few! have been
found. Others, so far, lie hidden
from human inquiry. Occasionally
death follows quickly Onlho heels of
the evil an illustratio M&f tho dan
gerous character of tuvnlment to
Tor example, Nervous Dyspepsia
is a compaiatively new disease,
growing out of the conditions of
modem life. It is a joint affection
of tho 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 can induce
the stomach to do its work, and
stimulate tho 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, wc shall have
conquered Nervous Dyspepsia and
Nervous Exhaustion." And they
wcto light. Knowing the infallible
power of Sicgel'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 hundred's
of cases which had been ptonounccd
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 arc there so
many insane asylums filled to over
flowing, all resulting from this
alarming disease. Its leading symp
toms arc 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 tho teeth or in
the mouth, especially on rising in
the morning; furred 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.
All this terrible group Mother
Siegcl'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, arc expelled from the body
through the bowels, kidneys, and
skin. The 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
sufferer, who has perhaps abandoned
all hope of ever seeing anotber well

THE ABOVE BEQUEST IS HEARD
da ly in cigar stores, saloons and
oilier p aces where cigars are sold, for
it is an undisputed fnctthatmostsmokeis
prefer a mikt cigar and that those who
nave lor a long time smoked strong
cigars, principally imported Manilas,
will, after having thoroughly injured
the stomach and impaired tho nervonn
system, surely want a mild cigar, if they
could find the right kind.
How many thousands of smokers who
suffer from loss of appetite, headache,
nervous irritability, asthma, etc., and
who have tried all possible remedies
without success, might bo cured if they
knew that (heir sufferings were caused
by the intemperate use of strong cigars,
and that they should only smoke mild
and properly prepared ones.
It is a fact that all mild cigars agree
well with Einokcrs, for in most cases
there is a lack of care in tho selection of
the tobacco, ind often the necessary ex.
periencc for it is wanting, yet there is
one brand which suits the most fastidious
smoker, and that is
" n l ii
Which is mado from mild, aromatic and
particularly selected and prepared to
bacco, ami tombines all the qualities
which may bo expected from a health

A REMARKABLE CASE.
Uudcr the above heading tho
Doncastcr Jicporlcr of July Gth,
1887, publishes tho following in its
Our readers may recall tho cir
cumstance of a young clerk, named
Arthur Richold, falling insensible
on tho Wcatlcy Lane in this town
soino time ago, and being picked
up, as he continued perfectly help
less, and taken in a cab by two
gentlemen to the ofllco of F. "V.
Fisher, Esq; tho solicitor who em
ployed him. On restoring him to
consciousness it was ascertained
that he was aflictcd with what
seemed to be an incurable disease.
When he was able to speak ho
said ho had been to his dinner and
nnd 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 senses in tho soli
citor's olllco ho thought what thi3
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 ho at onco
sought the best medical advice,
telling the doctors how ho had been
attacked. They questioned hi ml
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. Tho coming on
of this strange disease, as described
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 faco be
gan to have a yellow look; there
was a eticky and unpleasant Blinie
on tho gums and teeth in tho
morning; the tongue coated; and
the bowels so bound and costive
that it induced that most painful
and troublesome ailment the piles.
He says thcro was Bomo pain in
the sides and back and a sense of
fulness on the right side, as though
tho liver were enlarging, which
proved to be tho terrible fact.
The secretions from tho 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 the street ho 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
search of a cure that his wifu 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 lie should be ablo to
live. But God raised up friends
who helped to keep the wolf from
tho door. He tken went to tho sea
side at Walton-on-thc-Naze, but
neither the change, nor the phy
sicians who treated him there, did
any good. All being without avail
ho visited London, with a sort of
vague hopo that somo 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 wo least expect it.
While in London ho stated his con
dition'to a friend, who strongly ad
vised him to try a medicine which he
called Mother Seiyel'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 eat
better ; his food distressed him- less ;
the 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
time his knees would knock together
whenever he tried to walk. So (en
couraged was he now that he kep,
on using Mother fieigel't Curative
Syrup until it ended in completely
In speaking of his wonderful re
covery Mr. Richold says it' mado
him think of poor Robinson Crusoe,
and his deliverance from captivity
on his island in the sea; and added,
"But for Mother Seigel's Curative
Syrup the grass would now bs
growing over my grave."
Our readers can rest assured of
of tho strict truth of all the state
ments in this most remarkable case,
as Mr. Richold (now residing at
Swiss Cottage, Walton-on-the-Nazo)
belongs to ono of tho oldest and
most respected families in the beau
tiful village of Long Melford,
Suffolk, and his personal character
is attested by so high an authority
as the Rev. C. J. Maityu, rector
of that parish, besides other excel
lent names. We hayo deemed the
caso of such inportance to the pub
lic a? to justify us in giving this
short account of it in our columns.
