Croqhan, K. Y., June 1889.
I was not able to do anything for 19 months.
' was contined to bed most of the time, couldn't
eat nor sleep, was so nervous and dizzy that I
could not walk from the house to the garden.
I was ail run down by what the doctors called
nervous prostration. No medicine seemed to
help me. Then I took Pastor Koeulg's Nerve

no more sinking spells, can do my housework

Executions by Electricity, '
The new law of the State of New
York, for the execution of criminals
by the electrical current, instead of
by hanging, was enforced for the
second time on the 7th of July, upon
the bodies of four murderers. The
execution took place at the Sing Sing
State prison. There can be no ques
tion of the superiority of this mode of
inflicting the death penalty over the
rope system. The attending sur
geons were two eminent doctors,
namely, Dr. Carlos F.MacDonald and
Dr. Samuel B. Ward. In their
official report to the warden, they
give the following particulars :
"First All of the condemned
walked into the execution room un
restrained, with firmness and with
out assistance', seated themselves in
turn in the electric chair without the
slightest protest or resistance, and
quietly submitted to the adjustment
of the retaining straps and the elec
"Second In each case unconscious
ness was produced instantaneously
by the closure of the circuit, was
complete, and persisted without in
terruption until tho heart's action
had entirely ceased and death had
certainly occurred. In each case
death was manifestly painless.
"Third In compliance with the
statute, an autopsy was made in each
case, as soon as practicable, by Dr.
Ira T. Van Giesen, of New York, in
our presence and under our super
vision, with the result of revealing
the same gross changes in the blood
and tissues previously observed in
cases of death by the action of strong
"In concluding, allow us to con
gratulaie you on the completeness, in
all their details, of all your prelimi
nary arrangements, on the uniform
good order and decorum which
prevailed during the trying ordeal,
and on the resulting demonstration
of the rapidity and painlessness of
this method of inflicting the death
penalty. The experience of to-day
has proved to our satisfaction that
this method is superior to any other

The British consul at Hankow,
writing of the varnish exported from
that city, says he is informed that it
is the gum of a tree the Ithus verni
cifera. On this tree, before daylight,
incisions are made; the gum that
runs out is collected in the dark, and
strained through a cotton cloth bag,
leaving behind a large amount of
diit and refuse. This operation can
only be performed in the dark, as
light spoils the gum and causes it to
cake with all the dirt in it. It can
not be strained in wet weather, as
moisture causes it to solidify. When
the Chinese use this varnish, they
rub it on with a sort of mop, or swab
made of soft waste silk. It should
only be used in wet weather, as, i
the atmosphere is dry when it is rub
bed on, it will always be sticky. As
used by the Chinese, the varnish
takes about a month to dry, and dur
ing the time it Is drying it is poison
ous to the eyes. The consul thinks
that this gum may have been one of
tho ingredients of the celebrated
Cremona varnish, and he suggests
that it might be worth the while of
musical instrument makers to make
experiments with it, with a view to
producing a varnish that would giv
a mellow instead of a glassy sound.

Broke Up the Band.
'Did you ever try the plan t)f
suckiug an orange or lemon before a
band that was playing?" asked a
theatrical man of a reporter of the
Pittsburg Dispatch. "Well, if you
want to see a set of performers go to
pieces, try it some time. I had
heard of the trick, but never be
lieved it would have such an effect.
Not long ago I was In a small town
in the West. The village band was
serenading a newly married couple,
when I thought of the trick. I had
supplied several boys with lemons,
and I instructed them to suck the
fruit where the players could see
"The effect was very laughable.
The man with the brass horn caught
the sight first. His mouth com
menced io twitch nervously, then his
dry throat sudden!y expressed a de
sire for lemon juice, and between it
all he lost his place and quit playing.
Other players had the same experi
ence, and they couldn't blow to
gether to save their lives. The boys
were clean off, and the music was re
commenced. I have been told by
several band men that a lemon
sucked where they can see it while
playing is very exasperating as the
blowing makes their lips dry and a
lemon would afford them "great re
lief." THE FIRST SYMPTOMS OF DEATH

Boys on the Farm.
Farm and Fireside.
The decadence of farming of late
years is largely due to the undent
able fact that city life has offered
greater attractions as well as greater
profits to the young. While it is
true that farming does not now re
quire so severe and unremitting toil
as formerly, can it be said that young
people on the farm have been en
couraged to find their pleasures and
relaxation at home ? This is the
only way to maka. farm life attrac
tive to the average young man. If
on each holiday he goes to the city,
it will naturally roon seem to him
that city life is all a holiday, while
life on the farm is one of unceasing
drudgery. It often happens that city
boys, kept at work in stores and
only allowed to go ' into the country
for vacaticn, see only the holiday
side of farm life, and acquire a love
for it that those brought up on the
farm too often do not share. Why
do not farmers take a hint from these
facts and make as much holiday as
possible for their sons at home? It
is time that the old rule, which made
the boy hoe his row and run for wa
ter while the men rested, was super
ceded by a practice which would
give boj's the easiest tasks, and the
little investments that gave largest
profits, as the tsst means to interest
them in farming and make this the
occupation of their lives.

A singular experiment recently
took place in Palestine to test the ac
curacy of Dr. Colensoa's statement,
that the people of Israel assembled
in the valley between Mount Ebal
and Mount Gerizim could not hear
the curses and blessings delivered
from the lieights above them. A
party was travelling in the neighbor
hood of these mountains, and two
Scothmen ascended Mount Ebal, and
two Welshmen Mount Gerizim,
while the rest of the party remained
in the valley. One of the Scotchmen
read the curses, and from the oppo
site mountain a Welshman read the
blessings. Both were easily hoard
