After all the years of oppression
to which they have been obliged for
years to submit, relief is in sight for
all Irish people at last through the
efforts of that grand old man, William
E. (iladstone, whose bill for home
rule in the emerald isle has passed the
people's law. making branch of the
Knglish government the house of
commons and now goes to the
house of lords. The measure is one
to which the great statesman has
riven the best part of his public life:
it may be said, the issue being the
one on which on Aug. 12. 1'J-J. he
carried the elections and was again
made prime minister with a majori
ty of i ) made up of many factions.
With such a gallant and intrepid
leader, with such a power behind
their cause, the Irish people must
win this time.
The President U All Might.
There seems to be no doubt that
President Cleveland since his vaca
tion began has been in the hands of
his doctors. There is nothing
t-trange about this. He has been
working hard and was run down. The
country recognized the fact that he
was not in very good health weeks
ago. Nor is there any reason to
doubt that he underwent an 'opera
tion"' to relieve him. Few men go
through life without appealing to
the surgeon once in a while.
But there are operations and oper
ations, from lancing the baby's gums
to laparotomy and the mo.xa process.
Between them there is an infinity of
The truth about Mr. Cleveland
seems to be that one or two carious
teeth in the low state, of his'health,
due to overwork and want of exercise
and air, communicated disease to the
outer covering of the jaw known to
dentists as the "alveolar process."
It is this ftoft, spongy sort of bone
that constitutes the sockets of the
teeth: Necrosis or decay of this
process is not uncommon nor alarm
ing, provided that it is not commu
nicated to the true bone of the jaw.
According to the imaginative, but
not too scientifically informed writer
in the Philadelphia Press, from whom
the story proceeded, the president
was '-operated" on for cancer of the
jaw. Teeth were extracted, he tells
us. and then the upper jaw bone was
removed, and with it the cancerous
growth. And all this was done un
der the influence of nitrous oxMe,
the laughing gas of the dental sur
geon. On the face of it the sory is im
possible. The an:esthesia of laugh
ing gas is not suflicieiitly prvti acted
for such heroic surgery. The patient
would have "come to'1 before the
operation was fairly begun.
What is probable is that the writer
confused the jaw bone with the
alveolar process and in his own in
dependent way diogno.sticated "steoid
sarcoma where the surgeons found
It was considerate of the president
to conceal his sufferings in order to
prevent further disturbance of the
public mind and to have the opera
tion performed without publicity.
In return the public hopes that the
operation was just what the Daily
America believes it to have been,
one of minor importance in no way
justifying the tragic melancholy of
the Philadelphia Press man and the
autburst of line writing with which
lie bads the world contemplate the
unspeakable terrors of laughing gas
Mr. Cleveland is; moreover, we are
liappy to say, much improved in
health and spirits and ready to re
sume his official duties. The first of
them should include his signature to
the Wilson repeal bill.

A Cor For Stammering.
A gentleman who st unmered from
childhood almost tip to n-anhood gives a
very simple remedy for the misfortune:
Go into a room where yoa will be quiet
and alone, get some bock that will in
terest but not excite yoa and Bit down
and read two hours alo id to yourself,
keeping your teeth together. Do this
every two or three days, or once a week
if very tiresome, always tatiw care to
read slowly and distinctly, moving the
lips, but not the teeth, ""hen, when con
versing with others, tiy to speak as
slowly and distinctly ss possible and
make up your mind thj t you will not
Well, I tried this remly, not having
much faith in it, I m ist confess, but
willing to do almost ai.ything to cure
myself of such an anniying difficulty.
I read for two hours aloud with my
teeth together. The fir t result was to
make my tongue and javs ache that is,
while I was reading and the next to
make me feel as if something had loos
ened my talking apparatus, for I could
speak with less difficulty immediately.
The change was so great that every one
who knew me remarket I it. I repeated
this remedy every five or six days for a
month, and then at longer intervals un
til cured. Good Health.

"Did you ever stop to consider," asked
Lemuel Hunter, "why it is that when a
man is burned out he Jways overesti
mates his loss about 200 per cent? This
is more particularly the case with fires
in frame building town.. where the loss
to the building is generally assessed at
between three and fou- times what it
cost to erect it. I rais ed this question
not long since with a man who was
burned out. He said tho loss to his build
ing was $?..0:X. but he proposed to re
build at an expenditure of $1,200 end
have a better building. When I ques
tioned the logic of lAi calculation, he
promptly corrected me by pointing out
that the real estate on vc-hich the bn-ld-iug
stood was worth fully fcJ.OOO. and al
though he didn't pretend to argue that
the site had been burned up he seemed
to think himself perfectly justified in in
cluding the value of the -2.1 feet frontage in
his estimate of loss. No c ne was injured by
the calculation, and the good man was
perfectly jnstified in racking it if he de
sired, but if his idea is .i general one it is
not surprising that losses generally are
greatly overestimated." St.Louis Glube

The leading English scientists, Jones,
Hilton, et al., are figuring on the proba
bilities of the earth fitally collating as
a result of the modern craze for tapping
nature's great gas ret- rts. They argue
that the earth is a hug balloon held up,
in part at least, by heat and internal
gases, and that when r ature's great (ras
main is eventually exhausted the earth's
crust may break in md fall into mil
lions of fragments'. Ugh! The very
thought of such a cala -nit- is startling.
They argue that the steady belching
forth of millions of feet of gas every
hour of the day and ni,'ht is surely cans
ing a great vacuum somewhere not far
beneath the surface, a id that sooner or
later the thin archway of earth crust
will give way. Thea" will occur the

YOUR HEARING. I
Is it Gradually Growing Duller?
Catarrh Causes it Stop
Mr. Peterson's case illustrates the
danger of allowing these troubles to
run on, and should be carefullv read
A very large per cent of these cases
of deafness and roaring noises is due
to the extension of catarrh to the
eustachian tubes and inner ears.
Many of the most remarkable cures
that have been accomplished by the
physicians of the Scott Medical In
stitute have been in the restoration
of hearing lost or dulled from ca
tarrhal extension. It is folly to wait
for a trouble like this to get well it
self. It don't getwell. but ahvavs
gets worse, until frequently the hear
ing is entirely destroyed. A thor
ough course of treatment with a ca
pable specialist, who goes right at
the caur-e of the trouble and removes
it, is the only hope.

ciates cure all cases of deafness

Wilson has .ubli.-hed the statements

Dr. ilMn ha noticed a senseless
tirade against him by a voting tirm
