Franklin Dyre, a highly respect
able and intelligent farmer of (Gale
na, Kent county, Maryland, gives
the following as a sure cure for the ;
bite of a mad dog. As will be seen, I

diatly after being bitten, take one
ounce of the root of the plant-the
green root is perhaps preferable,
but, the dried will answer, and may
be found in ousedrug stores, and
was used by me-slice or bruise,
put it in a pint of fresh milk, boil
down to halt a pint, strain, and
when cold drink it, fasting at least
six hours afterward. The next

as the last, and this will be sufficient.
It is recommended that after each

I have a son that was bitten by a
mad dog eighteen years ago, and
four other children in the neighbor
hood were also bitten; the took the
above dose and are alive and well
to this day.
And I have known a number of
others who were bitten and applied
the same remedy. It is supposed
the root contains a principle which,
being taken by the blood in its cir

the deadly, effect of the virus of
I feel so much confidence in this
simlle remedy that I am willing
you should give my name in con

A Fact Against Darwinism.
A curions controversy has been
for some time raging (we use the
word advisedly) in the columns of
a scientific contemporary, Mr. Ho
warth ventured to assail one of the
chief positions of Darwidismn, and
asserts his belief that in the strug
gle for existence the weakest, and
not the strongest often prevail. Its
support of this a},pitrent paradox,
he appeals to, a fct which even
II,,i-s5.iC.ititic rIidlers may api,1e
(iate, and cites the statistics of the
lRegistrar ( "erl :and the Poor
Law .uard,l it, lr,,v, that the ii,
crearse of population hasI chietl
taken place anmoug the lowest, 1Iou
therefore among the worst nourished
classes of the comnmunity. In L:;m
cashire, where the in;c'reacss hIs , iie
very uinrlel. it i . a- : ,,,
semi-Lri-h, \ho, t iupy th, ih .
quarters of tih. large t\wns. w'.,,,
the indigenous stock of th country,.
which is thrifty and well off, are
steadily decreasing in numbers.
History also favors the notion that
poverty, which might be reasonably
supposed to impair the vital forces
has no influence in checking the in
crease of population. Ireland,
during the last century, was steeped
in poverty and want, and yet was
continuously increasing in pbpula
tion, while in England, under the
Tudors, when wealth was more gen
erally diffused, the numbers re
mained about stationary. Again,
with individuals, it is an admitted
fact that the largest families are
more often the offspring of weak
and delicate parents, and Mr. Ho
warth traces a sort of analogy be
tween the fecundity of consumptive
people and the readiness to propa
gate observable in plants that have
been starved by the gardener. It
follows from this that it is a mis
take to suppose tlhat mere increase
ia numbers is a proof of the in
crease of a people in health and
strength. And, as a matter of fact,
there can be no question that from
some cause or other the physical
type of England has degenerated of
late years. Broad chests and pow
erful limbs are no longer the rule
azpag laborers and artimns, and
every reurniting sergeant complains
that the doctor rejects every year a
larger proportion of the men ex
amined by him, mand even those ad
mitted into the ranks are very in
ferior in bone and muscle to their
old comradea Of course, there is
always a tendency to over-rate the
pest, and from the time of Homer
downward there have been com
plaiithat the children were weaker
than their sires; but even if every
allowance be made for this habit,
Mr. Howaith is entitled to be heard
when he maintuins that the fertility
of a race im no ttustworthy test of

Slowly and sadly they filed out
of the store. On the sidewalk a
consultation took place. They re
entered the door.
"Mister, do you sell three cents'
worth of rock candy ?"
"Well, we ain't got 'em;" and
the procession moved out again.

-A gentleman who was on the
Southern side during our late little
misunderstanding relates the fol
lowing : "Roe," of our company,
used to stammer fearfully, and,
while having a judicious admixture
of prudence in his valor, was still
one of the best and pluckiest of all.
One of our guns had been captured
by the Yankees, and the next morn
ing the order came down to recap
ture it if possible. It was a fearful
task, and, as we stood drawn up,
awaiting the word to move forward
at the double-quick, we felt instinc
tively that many of us would stay
around the spot where the lest gun
was. It scarcely seemed worth the
price we were .about to pay, and
"Roe" seemed to be more thorough
ly impresssd with this idea than
any one else. Suddenly an idea
entered his mind. Stepping odt of
the ranks, he stuttered, wildly, as
he always did when excited : "I
say, kick-kick captain, 1-1-1-let us
gig-gig-get nup a s-s;s-s-subserip
tion alld "piilp'i!pav for the ctus:ed

condition by the sermon of the
pastor, who had just proclaimed
' that "we are all miserable sinners,"
arose and frantically shouted "yes,

he carried to the town to sell or

day he came in as usual, and Peter
