A WONDERFUL MONTH.
Tho month of February, 188G,
wns in ono respect tho moVt remark
able in the world's histoiy. It hail
no full moon. January had two
full moons and so had March, but
February had none. Do you realize
what a rare thing in nature that
was? It had not occurred since the
time of Washington, nor since tho
discovery of America, nor since tho
bck'nning of tho Christian cu, nor
since tho creation of the world.
And it will not occur again, accord
ing to the computation o f astrono
mer, for how long do you think?
Two and a half million of years!
Was not that truly a wonderful
It has at last reached the cars of
the London Times that Englishmen
residing permanently in America
have made up their minds that it is
well for them to become American
citizens, and are acting accordingly.
The London paper has been in
formed by its Philadelphia corres
pondent mat in laau there were in
the United States 1,500,000 persons
of British birth, of whom -100,000
were males of voting age. all intend
ing to spend their lives in this coun
try, with few exceptions, but not
very many of whom had thought it
wortli their while to take out citizens
papers. The number has increased,
of course, by immigration tincc
1880. Probably the number of
adult males born in Britain now
living in this country is fully half a
million. But of these perhaps one
fifth have already been naturalized,
so that the possible early addition
to the voting population by the na
turalization of the clabs under con
sideration may bo placed at -100,000.
That certainly is a sufficient number
to affect the result of national elec
tions very materially, if marshalled
on one side of the boundary line be
tween the parties. There is some
thing in the tone of the Times arti
cle when read between the lines
which seems to advise Amcricau-En-glishmcn
that they ought to become
voters, and help elot a Free Trade
President. But when the native of
England elects to make his home in
America he is liable to become as
good a citizen, as loyal to the inter
ests of his adopted country as were
the pioneer Englishmen who com
menced coming to this country 250
"No lady can tell one of my plush
sacques from a real sealskin without
rubbing her hand over it," is the
advertisement of a Jersey City mer
chant, and most of the ladies of that
city talk to each other from a dis
tance of six feet.

A REMARKABLE CASE.
Under the abovo heading the
Doncaslcr Reporter of July Gth,
1887, publishes the following in its
Our readers 111113 recall the cir
cumstanco of a young clerk, named
Arthur Richold, falling insensible
on the Wcatley Lane in this town
some time ago, and being picked
up, as he continued perfectly help
less, and taken in a cab by two
gentlemen to the office of F. "W.
Fisher, Esq; the solicitor who cm
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 he
said ho had been 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 the street
like a man who is knocked down.
On coming to his senses in the (soli
citor's olllce he thought what this
might mean, and feared lie 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 lie at once
sought the best medical advice,
telling the doctors how lie had been
attacked. They questioned liim
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 described
by Mr. Richold, must be of inter
est both to sick and well. He 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 tho 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.
He says there was some 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 the tcrriblo fact.
The secretions from the kidneys
would be scanty and high-coloured,
with a kind of gritty or sandy
deposit after standing.
Theso things had troubled Mr.
Richold a long time, and after his
fall in the street lie clearly perceived
that the fit of giddiness was nothing
more than a sign of the steadlj
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 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 ph'
sicians who treated him there, did
any good. All being without avail
he visited London, with a sort of
vaguc 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.
While in London he stated his con
dition to a friend, who strongly ad
vised him to, try a medicine which he
called Mother Seiyel'a 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 Pimlieo, 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 surprise and plea
sure when a,ftcr taking a few doses
he felt great relief. Ho could cat
better ; his food distressed him less ;
the symptoms wo have named abated ;
the 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 -encouraged
.vas he now that he kept
on using Mother Seiyel'a Curative
Syrup 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 from captivity
on his island in the sea; and added,
"But for Mother Soigel's Curat! vo
Syrup the grass would now be
growing over my grave."
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-oii-tlie-Nazo)
belongs to ono of the 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. Marlyn, rector
of that parish, besides other excel
lent names. We have deemed the
case of such iuportauco to the pub
lic as to justify us in giving this
short account of it in our columns.

POISON IN THE ASHES.
Many pcoplo bcliovo that Nature
hns somowhero a remedy for every
disease. So many and so terrible
arc tho ills of life, nnd so slight tho
pleasure wo get as time (lies past,
that such a belief is tho least 'faith
we can show in n gracious and all
wise Providence. A fow remedies
but, alas, how fowl have been
found. Others, so far, Ho hidden
fromhunian inquiry. Occasionally
death follows quickly on tho heels of
tho evil an Illustration of tho 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 wero
formerly treated as separate ail
ments, and it was loft for tho clear
sighted thinkers to provo that the
basis of this terrible and often fatal
complication lies chiefly in the dls
ordered and depraved functions of
digestion and nutrition. They
reasoned thus: "If we can induce
the stomach to do its work, and
stimulate the excretivo organs to
drive out of tho body the poisonous
waste maltprs which remain after
the life-giving elements of the food
have been absorbed, we shall have
conquered Nervous Dyspepsia and
Nervous Exhaustion.", And they
were right. 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 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 aluiostbe
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 insano asylums filled to over
flowing, all resulting from this
alarming disease. Its leading symp
toms arc these; frequent or con
tinual headacho ; 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 tho need of it; sticky
and sliiny 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 Oi1 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
83'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 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 hopo of ever seeing another well
