WILL 1888 DE A YEAR OF WAR?
Tlio present 3'car is Ibo fifth year
of modern times in which the aggre
gate of the figures is twenty-live,
and there will bo hut five moro years
in which such a combination is pos
sible prior to the year 2599. Pro
bably but few have ever heard of
the old prophocy, which runs as
In every future year of our Lord,
Wheu the sum of the figures i twenty-live,
Some warlike kiugdom will draw tho
But peaceful nations lu peace shall
Students of modem history will
readily recall how faithfully this
prophecy has been fulfilled in the
previous years to which it applied.
In 1G99 Russia, Denmark and
Poland formed the coalition against
Sweden which inaugurated the
great war that ended in the disas
trous defeat of Charles XII at Pul
towa. The year 1789 will be ever me
morable on account of the bi caking
out of the French Revolution.
The year 1798 witnessed the cam
paign of Bonaparte in Egypt and
the formation of the second Euro
pean coalition against France.
In 1873 war broke out between
England and Afghanistan, followed
by the invasion of the latter country
by British troops.
In what manner the prediction is
to be verified in 1888 remains yet
to be seen, but the present condi
tion of Europe seems to promise
an abundant fulfillment of the pro
phecy. Plnla. Inquirer.
DECLINE OF MATRIMONY.
Marriages increase as we approach
the lowest crade where there is the
least of pride, ambition or energy
other than animal or self-preserving.
The decrease as we ascend to the
grades where acquisitiveness, busi
ness enterprise, intellectual tastes,
political or social opportunities, or
what not, induce a larger activity in
the individual, involving the neces
sity of larger preparations and re
sources outside of mere self-support.
And the reason is found not only in
the unwillingness of the woman to
begin, with her husband, in a lower
scale of living in the household and
in society, but as well in the unwill
ingness of the man to change his
style of living to suit the conditions
of matrimony, to deny his wife any
of tho advantages she enjoyed be
fore marriage, or even for himself to
sacrifice part of his other aims and
ambitions to the maintenance of a
wife and a home. To come at tho
point briefly from another direction,
a survey of the conditions seems to
indicate that the tendency of the
timc3 in education, society, habit,
life in general, is to unfit women for
becoming wives and men for becom
ing husbands. Domesticity is in
fringed by the multiplication of so
cial, business and professional cares
and responsibilities, the inducements
to marriage lessened in number and
force, and the family and the home,
our national bulwark, threatened
with decay through neglect for more
selfish individual considerations and

POISON IN THE ASHES.
Many pcoplo bclicvo that Naturo
has somewhere a remedy for every
disease. So many and so terrible
are tho ills of life, and so slight the
pleasure wo got as time flies past,
that bucIi a belief is the least faith
we can show in a gracious and all
wise Providence. A few lcmcdics
but, alas, how fowl have been
found. Others, so far, lie hidden
from human inquiry. Occasionally
death follows quickly on the heels of
the evil an Illustration of tho 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 n 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 tho dis
ordered and depraved functions of
digestion and nutrition. They
reasoned thus: "If we can induco
tho stomach to do its work, and
stimulate tho oxoretivo organs to
drive out of the body the poisonous
waste matters which lcmaiu after
tho life-giving elements of the food
have been absorbed, we shall have
conquered Nervous Dyspepsia aud
Nervous Exhaustion." And they
were right. Knowing the infallible
power of Siegel's Syiup in less com
plicated though similar diseases,
they resolved to lest it full-111 tins.
To leave no ground for doubt, they
prescribed the remedy in hundreds
of cases whicli 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 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 ; tho 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 the 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; lnauuit' to lix tlie niinu 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, unrcmoved poison
and kill, aie 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 tho
sufferer, who has perhaps abandoned
all hope of ever seeing another well

THE ABOVE BEQUEST IS HEARD
da ly in cigar Etores, bulooiib and

itisan undisputed fact that most smokers
prefer a mild cigar and that those who
have for a long tune smoked strong
cigars, principally imported Manilas,
will, after having thoroughly injured
the stomach and impaiied the nirvous
Fysttin, surely want a mild cigar, if they
could find the right kind.
How many thousands of smokers, who
butler from lots of appetite, headache,
nervous irritability, asthma, etc., and
who have tried all possiblo remedies
without success, might bo cured if they
know that their sufferings were caused
by the inU.mper.tlo use ot strong cigars,
and that they bhould only smoke mild
and properly prepared ones.
It is a fact that all mild cigars agree
well with smokers, for in most cases
there is a lack of caro in tho selection of

one brand which suits Hie most fastidious

A REMARKABLE CASE.
Uuder tho above heading tho
JDoncastcr Reporter of July Cth,
1887, publishes tho following in its
Our readers may recall tho cir
cumstance of a young clerk, named
Arthur Richold, falling insensible
on tho Weatloy Lnno 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 oQlce of F. W.
Fisher, Esq ; the solicitor who em
ployed him. On restoring him to
consciousness it was ascertained
that he was aflicted with what
seemed to be an incurable disease.
When he was able to speak he
said he had been to his dinner and
and wa3 on hia way back to his
work, when suddenly his head was
in a whirl and lie fell in the street
like a man who is knocked down. ,
On coming to his senses in the soli
citor'! ofllco ho thought what this
might mean, and feared ho was
going to have a fit of illness, which
we all know is a very dreadful
thing for a poor man with a familv
to caro for.
With this in his mind ho at once
sought tho best medical advice,
telling the doctors how he had been
attacked. They questioned liiml
and found that his present malady
was exhaustion of the nervous sys
tem resulting from general debility,
indigestion, and dyspepsin 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 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 slinic
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.
Ho says thcro was some pain in
the sides and back and a sense of
fulness on the right sido, as though
tho liver were enlarging, which
proved to be tho terrible fact.
Tho secretions from tho kidneys
would be scanty and high-coloured,
with a kind of gritty or sandy
deposit after standing.
These things had troubled 3Ir.
Richold a long time, and after his
fall in the streat ho 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 he went
from one physician to another in
search of a cure that his wife and
little ones might not como to want is
very pathetic and touching. Finally
he became too ill to keep his situa
tion aud had to give it up. This
was a sad calamity. He was appall
ed to think how he should bo able to
live. But God raised up friends
who helped to keep tho wolf from
the door. lie then went to the sea
side at Walton-on-thc-Nazc, 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
vaguo hope that some advantago
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 in London he stated his con
dition to a friend, who strongly ad
vised him to try a medicine which ho
called Mother Seirel'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, lie 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. 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 disappeared, and his
strength increased. Before this
time his knees would knock together
whenever ho tried to walk. So en
couraged was he now that he kept
on using Mother Scigel's Curative
Syrup until it ended in completely
In speaking of hia wonderful re
covery Mr. Richold says it made
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 tho grass would now ba
growing over my gravo."
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 Cottage, Walton-on-the-Naze)
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 tho Rev. C. J. Martyn, rector
of that paiish, besides other excel
lent names. We have deemed the
caso of such inporlanco to tho pub
lic as to justify us in giving this
short account of it in our columns.
