Remarkable Cure for Rheumatism
—Insulate Your Beds.
Some mx veeks since the writer was
aitacKed with a pain in the left hip,
lled bv i.hvsicians. 8ciatica. The
rain extendcJ Ct.-n the leg to the
,nee and ankle joints, but was not
mntinuoua durioc the first month. Af-
trtliat time it erew worse, and in
spite of snch remer'ies as I was using, I
was unable to sleep but little for three
nights in succession. In this condition
caHed on DrS. Vagenhal8 and Kins
man, a somewhat noted medical firm,
now of Columbus, but recently of Lan
caster. Ohio. I found Dr. WagenhaLs
in. and without ceremony detailed to
him my ailments. He said he had
had painful experience in rheumatism,
but had finally adopted a rather novel
remedy, he thought, with great bene
fit. But mine was a case of Sciatica,
and he desired to apply this new rem
edy in my case, as it was the first well
defined case of Sciatica they had had
since the introduction of this new the
ory. The prescription was
INSULATE THE BED YOU SLEEP ON.
I wiis instructed to procure four glass
cups, or plates, one for each bed-post
fatand on, disconnect the bed from
the wall or any outside object, and go
bed when I wished. I insulated my
bed as directed, and went to bed at 7
o'clock p. m., having rather an increas
ed amount of pain in my hip and leg.
At about 9 t'clock I fell asleep, but was
soon waked up by some one coming to
my room. I then found my system to
in a very free state of perspiration
my feel unusuallywarm, and I was
comparatively free from pain. I soon
went to sleep again, aud slept soundly
until morning. I have been keeping
this insulating process ever since, a
period of some ten days or rather
nights with like beneficial results.
do not claim that an actual cure has
been effected in my case, but the re
sults thus far have proved, highly satis
factory. Dr. Wagenhals has, by request, been
lecturing recently to a Medical Society
Col urn bus, on this new treatment of
rheumatism. In one of these lectures,
which vas ordered by the Society to be
printed, the doctor reports some forty
fifty cases of rheumatism treated at
Lancaster and Columbus,, on this new
theory: all of which were attended
with the mast astonishing results.
Ainong these was the case of General
Tom. Ewing, who contributed a letter
the subject, extracts ol which were
quoted. I)rs. Wagenhals & Kinsman
stand high in the medical profession,
and in the community where they have
long practiced. . ,
1 have nothing to offer for the effect
produced on the human system by in
sulation, nor do I know that Drs. Wa
genhals & Kinsman have any that they
would care to promulgate without fur
ther investigation. I deem it a subject
well worthy the consideration ot our
Belmont county physicians and scien
tists. The remedy should, of course,
more thoroughly tested and the re-
fults trivr-n to the jiublic. Any one
try it, without the aid of u physi
cian, if ti.ey s'e proper, and with4ittle
no expense. ISAAC WELSH.
Armstrong's Mills, Dec. 30, 1874.
Talmage tiives a recipe for keeping
times hard:. Let everybotly talk de
prcssingly. When auy one fails in
busines, put it all in the papers. Let
business men keep up peretui)l com
plaint. Let us have occasional editor
ials inciting bread riots, and political
speeches on the wrong of the laboring
classes. ' Let everybody prophesy a
hard winter. Let us all talk down in
stead of up. Let us take no account of
fact that flour is cheap, and that
harvests are large, and God is good.
WeBhall in this way be able to take
another fuggot from the. poor man's
hearth and knock another pane of glass
of his window, and hinder the
manufacturer from employing him.
together now ministers, editors,
capiltalists and laborers-let us give a
long, deep groan, and keep it going till
spnug, ana the tidies win do as
as we could reasonably expect.
The bill introduced into the Ohio
Legislature on the 4th inst., making
unlawful for sleeping car companies
charge more than a dollar a berth,
a dollar and a half for a section, is a
move iu the right direction. We have
always considered the charge for the
of a wood-stuffed bed, and a horse
banket, for one night of recumbent, and
close-curtained misery, exhorbitant
outrageous. These compauies have
monpolies, and so can command any
price they choose for their patent toss
ing boxes of discomfort. They know
people have to either sit up cramped
mashed stove-pipes ; or accept the
lesser evil they furnish. , If there is
anything upon which so much money
expanded with so little economy as
these polished, gilded, black walnut,
rose wood cars, we would like to
of it. If a little money wps used
soften the beds, and civilize the
blankets, people would willingly dis
pense with some of ornamentation so
We hope to hear of the speedy pass
aged of this bill, aud similar bills in
other States. When the companies
that their monopolies are in dan
ger, we may expect td he ahlo to sleep
the night at leastand get up with
little less soreness in the morning,
a more reasonable amount of cash.
The change of Government m Ppain
presents a phase of interest in the
United States which has not yet been
discovered. Heretofore, in considera
tion of the difficulties surrounding the
Spanisfc Republic, the United States
has hesitated to vigorously press her
demand, against Spain, on account of
the Virginius and other questions. On
the contrary England, which has had
no love for the Spanish Republic and
never recosrnized it. has pressed her
demand for indemnity and been first.
The change in Spain to a monarchy re
lieves the United States from any sup
pressed obligation to forbearance, for
fear of discouraging a new and strug
gling Republic. The indications from
Washington are that the treatment of
various questions with Spain are al
ready being viewed by the Gevrm
nient in this new light. The United
States, it is said, will recognize the new
Spanish Government as soon asAI-
phonso establishes himself in Madrid,
and instructions to that effect have
been sent to General Gushing, our
Minister there, with instructions also
to press tbe Virginius settlement.-
The Model Sheep Man.
The best sheep man we ever heard of
was a soldier of Stonewall Jackson.who
saw somewhere how valuable aresheep
for renovating worn out land, and after
the cruel war was over he went home
to his poor farm, aud bought thirteen
ewes all that fortunatly, he was able
to buy. He put them in a small field
of briers and weeds, which they f oon
destroyed. Then be fed them on bran
and meal in the winter, and in the
spring he had thirteen fine lambs. Sav
in:; the manure, ne piantea the oiu
brier patch with corn and harvested a
fine crop. All his spare time was de
voted to caring for the sheep. The
next spring he had more lambs; he
was. able to plant more corn : then
came more lambs, when he sowed clov
er and grew turnips ; and now to-day,
as a result of such small beginning, he
has several hundred tine sheep, free
from disease, bringing him $2,000 a
year, while his larm has become- ex
tremely leruie, ana ne is a ricn man.
We know that thousands and thous
ands of poor- youna men have n free
course open to them to become, wealthy
by beginning tbe same way. ' ' '
But tbe trouble is, the way is too
humble and slow; they want to get
along faster ; they have no patience, no
faith, no pluck. Truly, it does seem
small business to wacth a dozen sheep,
as if it was beneath tbe attention or a
britrht American youth : but if said
youth will look the subject all over, he
will see it worthy ot an his powers. A
youtiir man can well afford to sit down
with h dozen sheep on the plains, live
a dug-out, and feed on antelope meat,
rather than undertake to become in
dependent in a city on a clerkship of
a year. Tribune. ..x i
Mrs. Magruder's baby is carried out
by the nurse now, since the accident to
its carriage. - Magruder though: it
would be a good idea to have a tain e
goat to pull the coach, and he bought
one for the purpose; but one day the
goat met another goat that differed
from him iu politics or religion, or
something, and each undertook tocon
vincethe other by jamming him in
the skull. Every time Magruder's
goat would rear up preparatory to ma
king a lunge forward, Magruder's ba
by would lurch over backward, aud
when Magruder's goat struck tiie other
goat the concussion would shake the
milk in the Daoy'6 stomacn into but
ter. And sometimes the other goat
would aim at Magruder's goat, which
would dodge, and then the other goat
would plunge headforemost into the
coach, and mash the baby up in the
most frightful mauner. And in the
midst of the contest a' couple of dogs
joined iu, and Magruder's goat backed
and tilted the coach into the gutter,
and the dogs biting around kind of
generally, would snap at the goat and
cause it to whirl the baby around just
time for the bite; until at last the
goat got disheartened and sprang
through the fence, leaving the coach on
the other side, and it struggled franti
cally to escape, while the other goat
crowded up against the baby in order
avoid the dogs, and finally knocked
buby out, and butted the coach to
splinters. They say the way Mrs. Ma

ful to behold; but che. didn't speak to
him for a week, and he had to soften
down by buying her an ostrich
feather for her winter hat. The goat is
still at litrtre. Anybody who wants
him can have him free of charge. Ma-
cruder doen't recognize him when he
meets tbe animal upon the street.
A Cincinnatian Badly Swindled.
Cincinnati, Jart. 6. Joseph Zanone,
an Italian confe-tioner on Fifth street,
this city, was yesterday swibdled out
or nearly fiUOU oy two men wno rep
resented that they wished to dispose
of a lot of one hundred dollar bills for
small bills, offering one hundred dol
lars on the thousand for the exchange.
When Zanone produced his money it
was found they did not have a sufficient
number of hundred dollar billswith
them, and it was agreed that the sum
they had with them and Mr. Zanone's
money should be placed together in a
trunk and left in ZanoBe's confection
ery, the key being held by one of the
sharpers. The three proceeded to In
dianapolis, where the two sharpers
represented they had a business estab
lishment, to get more bills. Shortly
after leaving the confectionary one of
the sharpers, on some pretense absented
himself from the party, returned to the
confectionery, and took the money
from the trunk. He then rejoined th
other two and proeeedod to Indianapo
lis, where Mr. Zanone lost track of
them, and on his return to Cincinnati
found his money gone.
Ready Money. Keep ready money
on hand if you can. No matter if it is
only a little sum. It it is only sufficient
for the current expenses, it is a groat
convenience, to say the least. Anyone
who has tried and compared the credit
with the cash eystc.ru, will readily ad
mit the correctness of tho above re
mark. When you buy for cash you
generally get things cheaper get bet
ter weight and measure, and all the
favors the dealer can extend to his pa
trons. On the chronic crodit system,
the matter is usually reversed. If you
try to avoid credit by borrowing, you
improve matter very little if any.
Hence we give this advice, 'Turn an
honest penny' whenevtryou can, and
always havesuflicient money on hand

Bars of the Ohio Penitentiary.
From the Columbus Journal, Dec. 30.
There is something trite in the cap
tion of this article, but the alliteration
is, just at this time, suggested bya case
of constancy in love behind the strong
locks of the Ohio Penitentiary. The
tender passion burns under the striped
jacket of the prisoner as well as under
the Marseilles waistcoat and polished
bhlrt front of tbe young man of society.
The dull thud of the prison bolts, the
"tramp, tramp" of the prison march
and the drxadful solitude or the nar
row cells, cannot nullify the electricity
which Cupid's darts have introduced,
and it is doubtless a fact that many
weary souls in the closely guarded
stone mansion beat responsive to tbe
emotions of loving hearts outside. But
here is a case of mutual affection with
in the walls:
Thomas Miles.about thirty-five years
old, was convicted of burglary in Lick
ing county; was sentenced to two years
imprisonment, and was received at the
Penitentiary on the 7th of May, 1873.
At the same time a woman who was
tried, under the name of Ann McFar
land, was received, she having been
convicted as an accomplice of Miles,
and having received the same sen
tence. The conduct of both prisoners
has been good, since their confinement,
and under the encouraging system of
'gaining time' which has prevailed for
some time in the prison, they will, if
they continue in good behaviour, be
entitled to liberty on the 31st of Janua
ry, 1875. Their, credit and demerit
marks are not precisely coincident, but
on account of circumstances to be sta
ted hereafter, it is understood that a
small difference will be overlooked.
After many months of patient ser
vice in the female department, during
which time enduring love had been
hidden under an exterior of propriety,
Ann began to make inquiries about
Miles, and finally told tbe guard un
der whoso" care she was, that Miles
was her loVer; that she was innocent of
the crime for which she was imprison
ed; that she allowed herself to be con
victed that "he might be in close prox
imity to her lover during his incarce
ration, and that her heart still
yearned lor the lover of brighter days, i
The reader will pay the usu.nl price for
this paper, and take as much of Ann's
heroics as to innocence as he chooses;
it will cost him no more to believe the
whole story than to accept a modicum.
But as to tne undying love, no gener
ous person will refuse to gulp . the
Ann's statement was communicated
to the Warden, and Miles was called
into the office He expressed a hearty
reciprocation of the love expressed by
'Gentle Annie,' and signified a deter
mination to make her his wife at the
enrliest practicable time. The prison
ers were then permitted to have an in
terview, in presence of the Warden.
The meeting was a touching one; there
was 'ftn oUtgushing of long pent-up
feeling, and a union of two hearts la
cerated by separation. Then, beneath
the shadowing turrets of Ohio's chief
penal institution, there was a renewal
of vows of constancy such as would
add poetry to the dialogues of Romeo
and Juliet, and as romantic as thesoft
whisperings in the groves of Put-in-
Bay m a summer evening. Both ex
pressed a dt'i-ire for tnatrinioDy, and a
programme was arranged. At noon
on the 3lst of January Miles aud Ann
are to be married by the chaplain in
the Prison chapel, and from there they
will go out into the world joined to
gether by bands that can be burst
asunder only by desth or a divorce
Ann say3 her true name is Nancy
Jane Scott. She is a woman of comely
appearance. Some generous men main
tain that all women are more or less
beautiful. We defer any decided opin
ion on the romantic Nancy Jane until
we can see her embellished with the
paraphernalia of a bride. The officers
of the Penitentiary have expressed
their intention to purchase and present
wedding dress. .
