THE HIGHEST WATERFALLS IN THE
According to Dr. "Wcrlsch, the
-highest waterfalls arc the three
Krimbs Falls, in tho upper Prinz
gau, which have a total height of
1,148 feet. The three falls next in
height arc found in Sonndinnvia
the Vcnna Foss, in l.omsdnl (08-1
feet) ; tho Vctlis Foss, on the Sogno
Fjord (Sf.3 feet) ; tho Rjul.nn Foss,
in Thclcniaiken (801 feet). "With
a decrease in height of L13 foot tho
three Veliuo Falls (5D1 feet), near
Zcrni, tho birthplace of the histo
rian Tacitus, follow next, and arc
succeeded by the three Tossa Falls,
in the Val Formazza (511 feet).
The Gasteln Falls, in the Gastein
Valley (4G9 feet), are midway be
tween the Skjaggcdal Foss, in the
llardangcr Fjord (521 feet), and
the Boring Foss, in the same Fjord.
The great Anio Cascade, near Ti-
voli (31.") feet), appears small by
the side of the foregoing, but is
still larger than the Falls of the
Elbe in the lVicscngohirc, which is
only 148 feet high. If llic width of
the falls is taken into consideration,
the most imposing are those of the
Victoria Falls of the Zambesi, which
arc 391 feet high, by a width of
8,200 feet. A long' way behind
comes the Niagara Falls, 177 feet
high and 1,908 feet wide. The
third largest fall is that of the
Rhine at Sohaffhauscn, 148 feet
wide by only 33 feet high. The
highest waterfalls mentioned can
not compare with those gigantic
falls as regards cubic contents.
All these, however, arc topped
by the Yoscmite Fall, which has a
total descent of about two thousand
six hundred feet, in three leaps, the
first of which is 1,000 feet. Editor

THE PRINCESS REGENT OF BRAZIL.
DurinK the absence of the Em
peror and Empress of Brazil in Eu
rope the regency is intrusted to the
Princess Impeiial Isabella Cluistina,
who has assumed the title of Princess-Regent.
She is a very pleasing
and popular lady, gracious in de
meanor, and yet exceedingly digni
fied, not positively handsome, and
yet very kindly and pleasant in ex
pression. Her age is now forty-one.
She married at the age of eighteen,
which may seem rather early to our
ideas, but it is by no means so in
Brazil, and her husband is Louis
Gaston of Orleans, Count d'Eu, who
is a Marshal of the Brazilian Em
pire. The union was not blessed
with children until eleven years af
ter its consummation, and therefore
the little Prince Imperial do Grao
Paro, who is the heir to the Brazil
ian Empire, is only just twelve years
old. The Princess is not, as is
coramonty supposed, the only child
of the Emperor Peter II and tho
Empress Theresa Christina. She
had a younger sister Leopoldiua,
born only a year later than herself,
who married one of the numerous
dukes of Saxc-Coburg and Gotha
(Louis Augustus was his name),
and died within eight years of her
mariiagc day, leaving however, four
sons mitigate her husband's grief.
Failing, therefore, the three tiny
Piinces of the Princess Imperial's
own family,thc crown of Brazil
would be still well provided with
heirs. Oddly enough, however, the
youngest son of Princess Leopol
dina, the younger sister, is not less
than live years older than the eldest
son of the Princess Isabella Chris
tina, the elder sistcr.-rLoudon Life.

A REMARKABLE CASE.
Under the above heading the
JJoncastcr Jleporlcr of July Gth,
1887. mibllshcs the following in its Offlco
Our readers may recall the cir
cumstance of a young clerk, named
Arthur Richold, falling insensible
on the Wcalley Lane in this town
sonic time ago, and being picked
up, as he continued perfectly help
less, and taken in a cab by two
gentlemen to the olllcc of F. "W.
Fisher, Esq; the solicitor who em
ployed him. On restoiing him to
consciousness it was ascertained
that he was ailicted with what
seemed to be an incurable disease.
AVlicn ho was able to speak ho
said he 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 oillce he thought what this
might mean, and fcaicd he was
going to have a lit of illness, which
wc 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 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 stiangc disease, as dcsciibcd
by Mr. Richold, must be of inter
est both to sick and well. He had
noticed for several ycais previously,
in fact, that his eyes and face be
gan to have a yellow look ; thci c
was a sticky and unpleasant slime
on the gums and teeth in the
morning; the tongue coated; and
the bowels so bound and egstive
that it induced that most painful
and tioublesomc ailment the piles,
lie says there was some pain in
the sides and back and a sense of
fulness on the right side, as though
the liver wore 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 saiuly
deposit after standing.
These things had troubled Mr.
Richold a long time, and after his
fail in the street he 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 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. 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. He then went to the 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
he visited London, witli 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 fiiend, who strongly ad-viscd-him
to try a medicine which he
called brother Saiyrl'a OurcUive
Syrup, saying it was genuine and
honest, and often cured when every
thing else had failed. lie 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 surprise and pica
sure when after taking a few doses
he felt great relief. Ho could cat
better ; his food distressed him less ;
tho symptoms we have named abated ;
the dark spots which had floated
before his eyes like smuts of soot,
gradually disappeaied, and his
strength increased. Before this
time his knees would knock together
whenever he tried to walk. .So en
couraged ,as he now that he kept
on usinc Mother Meifel'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 fiom captivity
on Ids island in the sea ; and added,
"But for Mother Scigcl's Curative
Syrup the grass would now be
growing over my grave."
Our readers can lest assured of
of the strict truth of all the state
ments in this most i cmprkablo case,
as Mr. Richold (now residing at
Swiss Cottage, Walton-on-lhe-Nazo)
belongs to one of tho oldest and
most respected families in the beau
tiful village of Long Melford,
Sulfolk, and his personal character
is attested by so high an authority
as the Rcv.C. J. Maityn, lector
of that paiish, besides other excel
lent names. "Wo have deemed the

POISON IN THE ASHES.
Man3' people believe that Naturo
haa somewhere a remedy for every
disease. So many and so terrible
arc the ills of life, nnd so slight tho
plcasuro wo get as time flics past,
that such n belief is tho least faith
wo can show in a gracious aud all
wise Providence. A few remedies
but, alas, how f ow 1 have been
found. Others, so far, Ho hidden
from human inquiry. Occasional
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 a comparatively new disease,
growing out of the conditions of
modern life. It is a joint nffection
of the digestive organs and of the
nervous system. These two were
foimorly treated as separate ail
ments, and it was left for the clear
sighted thinkers to provo 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 excrctivo organs to
drive out of the body the poisonous
waste matters which remain after
tho life-giving elements of the food
have been absoibcd, we shall have
conquered Nervous Dyspepsia and
Nervous Exhaustion." And they
were right. Knowing tho 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 tho 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 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 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
feef; 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
Sicgel's Curative Syrup removes by
its positive, powerful, direct, yet
painless and gentle action upon the
p functions of digestion nnd assimila
tion. Those elements of the food
that build up and strengthen the
system arc sent upon their mission,
while all waste matters (the ashes of
life's fire) which,' unremoved poison
and kill, tfro 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
