''Miserere" at tbe Sistine Cbaoel of that
last low, desolate wail; yet so sweet and
tender. Fainter and fainter it grew ; like
the dying tones of a lute, it sank away as
if the lsBt sorrow was ended. I stood at
my wicdow till I fell to thinking, and mv
thoughts floated out on the glorious
winfcsol tbe night. All tin bezvens
waxed brighter, and the ' s'arlight ly

Purpose of finding ont from them what

them if they should decide to extend tbe
line to this city. The answer tiv?n them
was that Memphis bad plentv of room left
for all the railroads in the United States,
should they deeire to extend tbeir lines to
this point. Mr. Hoxie seemed to be very
much pleased with the way the emm a

Every since the subject of a union depot
waa first broached, those who take an in
terest in it have been in tbe habit of look
ing to Gen. George H. Nettleton of the
Kansas City, Springfield and Mem

put the plan . into operation. Hie
appointment as chairman of a com
mittee at a meeting held at the New Cot-

dedicated, confirmed tbe belief that he
would take tbe initiative in the movement.

in yesterday, and it is understood that he
will take soma positive aten inthanart

"When the v ear 1885 opened very little
building. The record for the year, as w b
now present it, shows that this assump
tion was far from being correct, and tbat
while the extent of new mileage added ia
less than in 1881, and very much less than
in several previous years, it is by no meat
insignificant. We find that tbe total
length of main line, not including second
track, siding or renewals, laid in the
unittu elates daring the vear 1885 was
3113 miles This is abont 700 miles lets
than the new mileage of 1 88 1, and it is
less than in any year since 1S78 when the
total was but 2GS7 miles, while in 1875 tbe
record of new construction reached enly
1711 miles. The work done has been large
ly on branches and extensions of moderate
length, and has not included any
very large 1 nes, such aa in previous years
have helped greatly to swell the total. In

track has beei added. The principal ac

OrricK or thx CorBrcs-JnTrBKAia,
Jr. Wtntrrtrttith, Sir: I waive rule I Utvve ob

prompttuj? me to say. Id reply to your requeat
what I kuow of your Chill Cure. Tbe private m
surancesof Itaeftlcacv I had, and the jrood result
of tm effects I had oflfrved on Mr. R. W. Haiwdltb
wiio. for more than 11 f teen years, had been foreman
of my office. Induced me to test It tn my family
The results have been entirely satisfactory. Th'
first case was of two years' standing. In which I be
lleve every known remedy bad been tried with
temporary relief tbe chills returning period icallv
and witn eerrrtnpriy increased severity. Your cure
broke them at once, and there has been no recur
reoreof them for more than six months. Theoihex
case was of a milder form, and yielded more readl
ly to other remedies: but the cbllls would return
at Intervals until your medicine was used, QLUc
which time, now several months, they bavesf
ly disappeared. Prom the opportunity I bsW
to judee, I do not hesitate to ex press my beiai
your Chili Cure Is a valuable specific, asd pes

' To thk Editor Sir :
A deacription of tlie chroli climtaaea of the littaal caviticei which dill
not includo Syphilitic (briwiu Cuturrh would not only be incomplete, but
would omit one of the moat present, diattvaaiiig and important of theao
maladiea. Yet, hare long heaitatod to plai-e a dcliiu-atiou of thia torrible
fonn of eo-called catarrh Ix-fore the public i-yo.
I did not fifar tlie animadvereion of some orer-cuptioiu critic, the carp
ing of some sham moraJist who can lind prurii'iicy in holy writ, nor the
anoera of those aho have not the moral courage to declare in an open and
public manner a momentous truth, lt tuch a declaration will bring upon
them as much coiitunu-ly aa commeiHl.-ttioii. I had nu reason to hesitate tu
Gonfirni the auspicious or corrolMratt tht conrictiona i'f those cratwhilu
erring nuafortunates, who had tH much rw-taou to ausppct or know tho cau.no
and nature of their.afftictiona tluit tltey were the penaltica i-f aina of w't-"ch
they may hare repented, alas '. too late.
But my rvluctaiuv waa for the inn--cut. but r.fflicted Hsterit' 'f titer
Utter, to whom ignorance of tuae facts -roa tlie op)Hite of bliaa, who Were,
suffering for sins they had not committed, and even knew not of.
The Divine Chronicler has written : .' I am a jealous God, visiting th.
tniquitWS of the fathcrx tvon the cltiiiu-cn, even unto the third and fourth
generation." In the inmctivil of thia sentence, him ofteu and how truly
do we realize that " the aaictest J.' a aomvtimea the aevereat injustice."
Yet of its melancholy tnitlifuln.m i have abundant daily evidence in my
professional experience, and it is safe to sat that fvphilitie Ihanotu Catarrh
U quite as common, if not motv so, tluoi the acrofulotVl form, particularly
in large cities.
To some this will 1h an astoniKliing revelation, but to many .n'y tho
corrobonitiim of a fact of which they aiv alix-atly aenaible, aa moat poi'ona
who have been Hlllii-tt.il nith rfi.r.ii f'irfifiiiH.twas have leanud from their
physicians, or through the invest i-rittiona they have thus becu led to make
into the nature and conciiem-e!i of their affections, that fetid catarrh and
ulceration and destruction of the Umea f the noae are the common ulti
mate conaequenoea of tlie loathsome liuihwly which phyaiciana call Syphilid.
We hear much of the "cure "of such ailments, but 1 tell you that
true typhi! is is seldom, some believe ntrver, fully eradicated from the Kaiuai
system, but is only " scotched " by remedies applied and adminiatered ira
first stage of the disease, and remains dormant for a season, ready to break
out at any tin in all the virulence of ulfrr of the jluh and bint and
most frequently iu the in-ae
1 have known the poison of lus foul ntalady, received in robust youth,
to romain thus subdued for forty yonrs, and thou, iu the decline of life ami
physical vigor, to suddenly apring into renewed and terrible energy, aa H V
raako up for the long period of ita enforced submission. But in thoaa
forty years a score of children and grand-children, " fleah of hia flesh and
blood of his blood " had aufferod and died from various forms of disease
debility, acrofula, manwnma, consumption, " decline," ozivnoua catarrh,
etc., unaccountable s to cause, and previously unknown to tho fauuly.
Not only do the children of a father whoso blianl has K-vn poiaoneil by
Syphilis inherit from him diseased constitutions, but the mother, also,'
while the rarriet fhtl't in Iter-, onf, roceivoa from them through the myetor
ious processes of thia ieruld f her physical lifo, a portion of the poiawn im
planted in their blood.
These are facts believed by moet of tho able-t pathologist rf thte n.,
Indeed, aoino of our achooU teach that Scrofula la but areault, moditicaii.
or jiliaso of inherited or constitutional Syphilis.
' Yet, while Scrofula in general, and a case of Ourntmi CoUirrh in ;artic
ular, may l5e, and often is, more or less remotely the result of anyentral or
narental,infeiaion of this character, it i possible, and in their treatment de
sirable, to draw a line of "ih-marcatioii between the causes and charactfia of
the cases of Ozwna that come ln-fon- me, and decido which ia moat scrou-'
loua, and which is most or purely tiiphihtir. w
If it is entirely or oy.nu-iiiwfW; syphilitic, the treatment ahould be
quite different from what it should lie if scrofulous or rtmoMy syphilitic A
correct diagtunit, then, is of the utmost importance.
In forming such a diagnosis the social status of the patient cannot be
taken as a guide. Diseases of licentiousness are not by any means confined
to tho class usually known to lie licoiitious.C' Nor ia the "scarlet woi:iai"t
the cyprian of Waverly Place, the title tie joie of Morton and Dujiont
Streets, and the Mongolian wanton of Chinatown thoir only source.
While thousands of youths, particularly iu this city, learn from those disso
lute creatures their first lessons in seiiBtial vice, and receive from thoir lep
rous persons the virus that is to poison the blood, and liequoath disease and
death to their progeny for generation.-,, tliey not infrequently suffer theao
consequences from persons who do n..t regularly pursue such a calling, the
"Lizettos" and " (irisottes ' of domestic and mwal life, whoso temptations
and fancied freedom from disease too ol'ien lead callow youth and incautious
manhood from the paths of rectitude. ' '
