It is not reasonable to expect to be
cured of any disease, no matter how
constant and persevering- the treat?
ment, when that treatment is alto?
gether misdirected, and can not jwssi
bly reach the trouble.
This explains why those afllictcd
with catarrh meet with so much dis?
couragement. Though they faithfully
take the usual treatment consisting of
sprays, washes, etc., and pass through
the summer without much discomfort,
as soon as cold weather returns, they
find themselves more firmly in the grip
of the disease than ever. Such results
could hardly be expected if the proper
treatment had been given. (_)
Any one who has bad experience
With catarrh will readily admit that it
is one of the most obstinate of diseases;
it is easy to sec, therefore, that it is
deep-seated, and that no remedy which
merely reaches the .surface can have
the slightest effect upon it. The only
known cure for catarrh is a real blood
remedy, one which gets at the scat of
the disease?lite cause of the trouble?
and forces it from the system. Such a
remedy is S. S. S. (Swift's Specific). -
Mr. H. P. Cook.
Mr. H. P. Cook, of 32 Walker street,
Atlanta, Ga., suffered intensely from
catarrh. lie says:
"I at first thought 1 had only a bad
cold, and didn't give much atten?
tion to the obstructions in my nose
and throat. This soon became notice?
able, and began to so inconvenience
me, that I applied for treatment and
was given the usual local applications
of sprays, washes, etc. Tho immediate
effect of the treatment was to relieve
lite, but only for a short time after ap?
plication, and 1 could easily sec that
the disease was growing worse stead?
ily, and .seemed to grow deeper toward
my lungs; ihy nose and throat were
constantly choked up, so that 1 was
till the time hawking and spitting, and
to add to it all, the disease became
very offensive. 1 was unable to obtain
much sleep, being compelled to get up
constantly during the night to clear
my throat and keep from choking. ("")
"I tried various treatments without
relief, as none of the medicines seemed
*.o reach the disease. Finally, some
one recommended S. S. S., and before
I had finished one bottle. I felt better.
I continued the medicine, and it cured
me permanently. I truly believe S.s.s.
is the only cure for catarrh, the most
abominable of all diseases."
S. S. S. is ur.Iikc all other blood
remedies, because it is more than a
mere tonic, and goes directly to the
seat of all blood diseases, and cures the
most aggravated cases of Cancer, Ca?
tarrh. Wlieumatisui. Eczema, Scrofula,
Contagious I Hood I'oiaou, etc. S. S. s.

OUR NEW YORK LETTER.
A Keal Lifo Tragedy With a Moral.
Greater New York's Kcw Women-Oc?
tavo Thaiiet mid Her Bu.tcb.er.
[Special Correspondence. 1
A Case which recently coine under
1113- notice furnishes n striking illustra?
tion of tho truth of tho statement that
tho way of the transgressor is hard and
affords tho text for u sermon which in
the hands of an eloquent, preacher could
not fail to have an erroneous and salu?
tary influence upon tho younger mem?
bers of his flock. About 11 dozen years
ago there lived in this city an orphan
hoy who had been adopted by a wealthy
couple. Tho man was, while not tech?
nically dishonest, at least ti trifle un?
scrupulous in his business methods, and
it is doubtless true, as has been alleged,
that this early training had much to do
with the subsequent downfall of tho
lad. His protectors lost their money in
time, and the boy was left to shift for
himself.. He contrived to secure employ?
ment and Wits rapidly advanced. Ho
soon became so valuable an assistant
that he was put into a position of trust,
where ho handled huge sums of money.
The Tempter Came.
At about this time the young man
fell in with wild companions, who prey?
ed upon his generous nature to such an
extent that ho soon found that bis ac?
count in tho savings'hunk hud disap?
peared. Then it was that the tempter
came in the person of one of theso newly
acquired acquaintances, who induced
him to advance himself n ccrtaiu sum
of money from tho funds of tho firm, tho
alleged friend promising that it should
hi- returned before tho day ouwhich tho
young clerk's report was to bo made,
lie yielded, the money was not forth
coining at tho time promised, and Ids
employers, .justly exasperated by Iiis ap?
parent ingratitude, prosecuted the case
vigorously. Friends of former days fell
away like icicles before :t torrid sun,
and this young man, who would have
been shocked by the. mere suggestion
that he would steal, was sent to prison
for several years. Ho got tho commuta?
tion for good behavior and returned to
this city, chastened und determined
never again to keep bad company.
A Marked Man.
He lived up to this resolution, but
soon learned that ho was in n measure a
marked man. U seemed impossible to
gei employment even where the mutter
of honesty would be of little moment.
He was discouraged and went away, re?
turning after an absence of a year or
two. This time ho succeeded in getting
Work, and ho had just conic to the eon
elusion that at last a new life was open?
ing before liiui when he was stricken
with u malady which hud been contract ?
ed in prison. Since that time this un?
fortunate bus spent three-fourths of each
year in hospitals, and at t Iiis moment ho
is calmly and almost cheerfully await?
ing the etui, which ho realizes cannot be
fur away. He has no complaint to make
and declares that Iiis punishment, while
severe, was nevertheless just. That is
true, without a doubt, bill there is so
much about this case which suggests
that the tempter should also have suffer?
ed for the crime that many a man would
have railed at fate and held it responsi?
ble for the downfall brought about by
his own act.
New Women In Greater New York.
The new woman is not coming. She
bus come. The charter of < ireater New
York lias been a fruitful source of con?
versation in this city for many weeks.
The new woman was not given a
thought by those charged with tho work
of drafting the chat ter. So the ladies
held tl largely attended meeting and
adopted tho billowing resolutions:
"That there may bo contained some?
where in the charter an explanatory
clause stating thutwherever the mascu?
line noun and pronoun uro used they
shall be held to apply to persons of both
sexes, so that women shall not only be
taxed for tho support of the city gov?
ernment and sull'er penalties for misde?
meanors on equal terms with men, but
shall also shore the benefits of all privi?
leges bestowed on men; that in all de?
partments of the city government there
shall be established tho rule of equal
pay for equal work, without regard to
sex; that in all city institutions which
receive women as prisoners, patients,
paupers or otherwise dependent inmates
women officials shall be appointed ill
different capacities; that women phy?
sicians shall bo eligible for all positions
in city hospitals and asylums whore
women patients are received and that
the maternity and gynecological wards
shall be under their control; thai insane
and criminal women shall have the op?
portunity of being examined before com
mitment by women physicians; that
women shall be appointed to servo on
the board of health, on the bonrfl of cdu
cation and OS commissioners of charity. "
Now, the worst of it all is that the
horrid men may just ignore the resolu?
tions or, more terrible still, laugh at
them despite tho manifest justice of
most of the demands.
Octave Thaiiet and Her Butcher.
Richard Henry Stoddard, tho well
known litterateur says, that as Miss
Alice French, both v known to tho pub?
lic as Octave Thuiiet, bus given to mag?
azine readers SO many good stories she
t'onuot object to one concerning herself
which is not only true, but amusing. It
seems that for a long time Miss French
has patronized a St. Louis butcher, who
has sent her the choicest, cutlets in the
market, ai:'!, wishing to show her ap?
preciation by making him. or his family
some nice Christmas presents, she wrote
to him asking how many children he
had, and he answered six. Thereupon
Miss I rene!! purchased a huge bundle
of jumping jacks, tin horns, drums,
whistles, doils. firecrackers and candy
and split them to her butcher. A few
days later she received a card thanking
her and making this apology for an
omission in former letter, "I'm sorry,
Miss French, that I neglected to state
in my former letter that my youngest
child is >W years old and that I have uu
grandchildren." JOSEPH RiJSSRM*

PEOPLE OF THE DAY.
Congregationalism has received a |
shuck, and tho ministers of that denom- j
ination arc everywhere discussing tho
manner in which tho Rev. Lymnn Ab- '
bott lias been handling certain parts of
tho Bible in tho series of lectures which
ho has been delivering in Plymouth
church, Brooklyn. "The Literature of
the Bible" is his general subject, and
under this title he has tiiken up various
Bible stories. The incident of Jonah and
this whale he disposed of its a myth and

part of the "parable fiction"' to bo
found in the Old Testament. Ho dealt
with this story in such a humorous vein
that bis congregation laughed loudly
and frequently. To say funny things in
Henry Ward Beecher'sold pulpit is re?
garded by many orthodox people as lit?
tle less than sacrilege. Many Brooklyn
ministers have answered Dr. Abbott in
tho course of their Sunday evening ser?
mons, and the Manhattan Congregation?
al association, composed of ministers,
has passed a resolution condemning such
treatment of tho Bible. One minister
has even gone so far as to compare Dr.
Abbott to Ingersoll and Thomas Paine.
