nt LOST OF THE GREAT TIMBER
The Government steamer Enter
prise reached New London on the
nftcrnoon of Doc. 25, and reported
finding the big raft broken to pieces,
350 miles south-south-west of Sandy
Hook, nml 135 miles from the spot
where it was abandoned. When the
look-out aloft reported logs lloaling
sonic distance ahead, the speed of
the steamer was slackened, and in
a few moments afterwards she was
in the midst of a great mass of logs
that stretched towards the west as
far as the eye could reach. The
logs first sighted wore small pine
timbers, evidently from outside the
raft. It was at first concluded that
only a few had broken adrift, and
that the body of the raft would be
discovered later, but the further the
steamej went the greater the num
ber of logs, and soon the vessel was
surrounded by timbers varying
from -JO to CO feet in length. The
sea was comparatively (pilot, the raft
having evidently been broken up
during a gale on Doc. 22. For six
hours the Enterprise picked her way
through the seemingly interminable
field of floating timber, but then the
logs began to grow scarcer, and
shortly afterwards none were visible
from the steamer's deck. The En
terprise steamed to New London,
where the captain despatched leports
to the Navy Department informing
the secretary of the discovery, and
saying that the raft was no longer a
danger to commerce. Many ship
ping authorities disagree with him
about the danger, and maintain that
a collision with a big log is capable
of doing serious damage to a vessel.
The tloating logs arc south and cast
of all the routes followed by the tran
satlantic and coastwise steamships.
Even ships from Baltimore pass to
the north and west of that place,
and only sailing ships blown out of
their course arc likely to meet the
logs until the latter get into the
Gulf Stream. Then they will be
carried iioitli again to the" routes of
the steamships, unless in the moan
time they become waterlogged and
sink, which would not take "long to
do. The owner of the raft says,
"The ocean is a big place, and ships
are not likely to hit the Jogs. The
largest does not weigh above a ton
and a quarter, and a ship striking
one would not be damaged. A hun
dred thousand logs bigger and
heavier than those lost arc thrown
over from timber-carrying schooners
every year, but no one over hears of
them again. 1 lost 1200 not long
ago. They were seen once and then

A REMARKABLE CASE.
Under the above heading the
Doncastcr Reporter of July Cth,
18S7, publishes the following in its
Our readers may recall the cir
cumstance of it young clerk, named
Arthur Richold, falling insensible
on the "Weatlcy 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 olllce of F. W.
Fisher, Esq; the solicitor who cm
ployed him. On restoring him to
consciousness it was ascertained
that he was allicted with what
seemed to bo an incurable disease.
When he was able to speak he
said ho had bccii to his dinner ami
and was on his way back to his
work, when suddenly his head was
in a whirl and ho fell in the street
like n man who is knocked down.
On coming to his senses in the soli
citor's olllce ho 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 hitnl
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 faet, that his C3es and face be
gan to have a yellow look; there
was a sticky and unpleasant slime
on the gums and teeth in the
morning; the tongue coated; and
the bowels so bound and costive
that it induced that most painful,
and troublesome ailment the piles.
Ho sa3s there was some pain in
the sides and back and a sense of
fulness on the 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.
Richold a long lime, and after his
fall in the street he clearly perceived
that the fit of giddiness was nothing
more than a sign of the stcadh,
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
ho 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 ho should be able to
live. But God raised up friends
who helped to keep the wolf from
the door. Ho then went to the sea
side at Walton-on-tlie-Naxe, but
neither the change, nor the 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 him in the metro
polis. This was in October, 1885.
How wonderful, indeed, are 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 M other fieirrl'ts .Curative
Syruji, saying it was genuine and'
honest, and often cured when every
thing else had failed, lie bought
a bottle of a chemist in l'imlico, and
began using it according to the di
rections. He did this without faith
or hope, and the public, way there
fore judge of his surprise and plea
suro 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 whioli 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 ivas ho now that he kept
on using Mother Seigel's 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 ; mid added,
"But for Mother Soigel's Curative
Syrup tho grass would now bo
growing over my grave."
Our readers can rest assured of
of tho strict truth of all tho state
ments in this most remarkable case,
us Mr. Richold (now residing at
Swiss Cottage, Wallon-on-the-Nazo)
belongs to one 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. Miulyn, rector
of that parish, besides other excellent-names.

POISON IN THE ASHES.
Many people believe that Nature
has somewhero a remedy for every
dlscaso. So many nml so terrible
arc tho ills of life, and so slight tho
plcasuro wp get as timo flies past,
that such a belief is the least faith
wo can show in a gracious and nll
vfisc Providence A few remedies
but, alas, how fowl havo been
found. Others, so far, lie hidden
from human inquiry. Occasionally
death follows quickly .on tho heels of
the evil nn illustration of the dan
gerous character of the ailment lo
For example, Nervous Dyspepsia
is a "comparatively jicjo disease,
growing out of the conditions of
modern life. It is a joint affection
of the digestive organs and of the
nervous ' system. Those two were
formerly treated as separate ail
ments, nnd it was Jeft 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 wo can induce""
the stomach to do its work, and
stimulate the excretive organs to
drive out of tho body the poisonous
waste matters which remain after
tho life-giving elementsof the food
havo been absorbed, we shall have
conquered Nervous Dyspepsia and
Nervous Exhaustion." And they
were right. Knowing the infallible
power of Siegcl'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 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 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 senso 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 slimy matter on tho teeth or in
the mouth, especially on rising in
the morning; furred and cpated
tongue ; dull e3'es ; 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, powerffil, direct, yet
painless and gentle action upon the
functions of digestion and assimila
tion. Those elements of the food
that build up and strengthen tho
system are sent upon their mission,
while all waste matters (the ashes of
life's fire) which, unremove'd 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 tho 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
