THE TIMES, NEW TJLOOMIIELI), PA., JANUAltY 2, 1877.
Rather out of Season.
A 'Washington (Montana) paper eays t
Last Sunday ulght at about ton o'clock,
tbore was an immense number of grass
hoppers passed over and through this town.
The night was very dark, buttlie "hoppers"
came , buttinp against the buildings,
rattling ngiluBt the windows, entering the
houses at the opeu windows and doors,
and playing hnvoo with the over-superstitious,
for tunny persons had goue to bed
and were In their (lint sweet sleep, as the
"hopprrs" commenced to rattlo against the
glass of the windows and jiluipiibout rooms,
making a noise like unto a parcel of baby
spirits out on their lirst spree. It was a
strange experience for those who were
awake and took the pains to go out doors
and listen to the odd small noise that filled
the air, produced by the coucussion of their
wings and the butting of their heads
against any obstacle in their way. As far
as could be judged from the noise they
mado, they were In great force, and came
from the north going In a southern direc
tion ; hut many thousands came to grief in
town, cither giving out through fatigue or
the ninny accidents of attempting to make
a night trip without good pilots, as the
next morning thousands of dead nud
maimed grasshopper were lying about loose
on the streets, in the yards and houses.
They were of the largest type of Hocky
. Mountains species, some of them measur
ing fully tlnce inches in length from "head
to toe." They evidently came across the
Missouri river, which at this place is fully
three-fourths of a mile wide, and those
that did not perish in town kept ou toward
, the hind of the perpetual green.
COWARDLY ASSAULTS. '
When a candidate for high office Is so
' well liked and so popular with the masses
hb to make his defeat difficult in a fair aud
s honorable fight, mean and cowardly nieu
are not wanting who delight in manufactur
ing Hob and slandering his good name.
' There ii'e also thoBe whoso selfishness
prompt them to prostitute their honor,
VpotYeit truth, and ignore right, for 4 bo
'"-ate of injuring a enmpotitor iu business,
i "hose prosperity they envy, and with whose
business sagacity they have not the talent
, to successfully compete iu au honorable
way. These thoughts suggested by the
mean, cowardly attacks made upon nie aud
my medicines, by those who imagine their
pecuniary proKpocts injured by the great
popularity which my ataudard medicines
have acquired, and the continued growth
of my professional practice. Narrow
minded practitioners of medicine, and
manufacturers of preparations which do
uot possess sufficient merit to successfully
compete for popular favor, have resorted
to cowardly strategy as to publish all sorts
of ridiculous reports about the composition
of my medicines. Almanacs, "Receipt
Books," aud other pamphlets, are issued
and scattered broadcast over the laud
wherein these contemptible knaves publish
pretended analyses of my medicines, and
receipts for making them. Some of these
publications ate given high-sounding names
pretend to be issued by respectable men of
of educatiou and position, for the good of
the people the more completely to bliud
the reader to the real object in their circu
lation, which is to injure tho sale of my
medicines. ('The Popular Health Alma
nac" is the high-sounding name of one of
these publications, which contains bogus
receipts, without a grain of truth in them.
Not less devoid of truth are those which
have been published by one Dr. L., of De
troit, iu the Michigan farmer, aud by
other manufacturers of medicines, in
several so-called journals of Pharmacy.
They are all prompted by jealousy and ut
terly fall in accomplishing tho object of
thoir authors, for, notwithstanding thoir
free circulations my medicines continue to
sell more largely than any others manu
factured in tbiscouutry, und are constant
ly inuroasing in sale despite the base lies
concocted and circulated by such knaves.
The people find that these medicines pos
sess genuino merit, accomplished what
their manufacturer claims for them, and
are not the vile, poisonous nostrums which
jealous, narrow-minded physicians and
' sneaking oomponuders of competing medi
cines represent them to be. Among tho
tho largo number of protended analyses,
published, it is a fipnifcant fact that no
two have been at all alike conclusively
proving the dishonesty of their authors.
It is enough for the people to know that
while thousands, yea I may truthfully say
minions, uavo taken my medicines and
have been cured, no one has ever received
injury from their iim.

t2T Dr. J. II. Johnston, of Shamokin,
Pa., while extracting a decayed tooth, cut
his finger on one of the sharp edges of the
tooth. Iu a few hours the finger and hand
began to swell, and the next day the swell
ing had gone up tho arm and even bis side
was aflVcted to some extent. A physician
pronounced it a case of poisoning, some
what similar in its tfli-cts to the poison
from a cut by a dissecting knife. Proper
remedies were admiuistered, and the swell
ing begnu to disappear. '
