HOW A KIND-ACTION
Oh.tiiflr#d tho Course of a Woman's Mfe. A lilt]* incident was bronchi to the atu'iuioo of a reporter, yesterday, which illat-lnitOM in marked decree h»w man 1 Ood ii liltle act- of kindness may accomplish. About twelve years ago a yonn«r ^irl, only about l.'i years of aixe, KM brought into the Police 'our* ekarged with being a disorderly persot. She was fatherless and mothei less, and had led a life which was quite the opposite of refining in its tendencies. But still her face w&.s round and rosy, and with h«rgolden hair she was a beautiful child. What to do with her was ft question with the authorities. She wafe undoubtedly guilty of what she was charged with, and the ouly remedy for her case seemed to be a shurt terra of confinement. Just as she wit* to be sentenced, however, a well-known attorney who was present asked to be allowed a few moments' eotiTcr*ation with the girl, which was grauted. At its close the gentlemen surprised the court by asking that the girlV ca^e be dismissed, promising that he would be responsible for her actions in the fnturo. As it was the easiest way out of the dilemma, the judge was only too glad to comply with the gen tleman's request, and the self-appointed guardian walked out of the court-room with his protege in charge. He secured employment for her as a domestic in a private family, and made her promisy to come antf see him as often as possi ble. The girl lived up to her agree ment, and the gentleman's kind treat* ment and advice which he gave her in ber little troubles completely won her heart. Time passed rapidly, and the little girl became a young woman. Sihe WAS an excellent houskeeper, her eharactrr was beyond reproach. She became more and more beautiful as she mntured in years, until at 10 she mel a -wealthy railroad man, who fell deeply in love with her. She returned hLs addiction, but whejj he asked her hand in marriage she refused him. He pressed his suit, however, and finally she related to him the story of her ear ly 1'k'' it the reason why she bad refused his suit. Her lover was not thus to be driven from her, and she finally gave consent to the marriage. The weddiug occured shortly after wards, and the newly-wedded pair took up their residence in an elegant home in a Western city, where they now live. Last week a beautiful woman, hand somely dressed, arrived in the city and called upon the lawyer above referred to. At jirst ho did not recognize her, but when site spoke of the little girl whom he had taken from the Police Court years ago his eyes were opened, and he knew his visitor to be his former protege. Both were deeply atl'eeted by the meeting, and fervent were the I thwnks vrhu-h tin* l.idv gave the lawyer for his kindness to her in the puM. The next day the lady 'eft the city for New York, and yesterday sailed for Florida, where she will spend the winter on an extensive plantation i owned by her husband. Through Inr iHwfaetor tho rdory reached the car.s of a Life, reporter, but the condition! was imposed that 110 names should be used. The story is a remarkable one. and, as remarked before, shows h« vv an ait of kindness can completely change the course of a life. ~-0,mfm I Bnhig Too Much for Children. There is a tendency on the part of. some mother* to do so much for their children that virtually a premium is placed upon selfishness. The child whose every wish is anticipated, and for whom nothing ia too good, is apt to grow up an exceedingly unpleasant per son, unlcMfl, indeed, there I o an extra ordinary amount of natural good in him to counterbalance the undue indul gence. Shielding children from every chilling breath of life's air begets a lore of ease and selfish enjoyment which becomes fixed wheu childhood is past. A mother, for example, had dcu ed her self every comfort. She had risen early, and had taken rest late in order that her (laughters might have a "per fectly happy girlhood." No duty was exacted of them. If they were minded to help they might do so: if not, there wan no one to ease the weary mother of her burden. Small wonder is it that after these girls grew up their sole thought was for self. The mother was ignored by them disrespectfully spoken of "old-fashioned" and "without ta.sf e." Indeed, she was only regarded ones who could bake and brew, and was ereu "ordered"—no other word eau be used—to wait upon them while they lolled in theii easy chairs. Never having been taught to spend ami fce ajjjent in doing good, these young wo men were, not the helpers of those in need and never carried sunshine iuto darkened homes. Even their best friends tired of them, and their lives were unlovely and discontended. There oan be no happiness in life unless the straight line of duty, which leads to "beauty'® curve," be conscientiously followed. Let, every mother inculcate in her children's minds that it i.s more blessed to give, than to receive. The Year From a Hurtinexx Point. For manufacturers in general and for the greater part of those who de pend upon the profits of trade, trans portation and product ion for their iti aorri -A. the pnst year has been a profit less one. A large volume of business has been done, but, there has boon no profit of any consequence in it, com pared with other years. Mills have been run, but chiefly because it is bet ter to keep them running to earn wages for skilled labor than to shut them lown and have valued employes scatter. But while the year has been so unsatisfactory to manufacturers and business men generally, it has not been by any means a hard year for those who depend on salaries or wages for their living. As a whole, in this part of the Union, labor has been very gen erally employed. As a matter of fact more industrial enterprises were in op eration when the year closed than when it began, in spite of the unprofitableness of business generally. It is true that wages were not so high aa in 1882, but the decline in wages has been much less than the decline in the price of all of the necessaries of life. During the year the demand for the labor of mc chanics, particularly in the buildiug trades, has been fully up to the average and at good prices. The mild weather thus far has been very favorable for such employments, so that the prudent mechanic, when he comes to review the season, must conclude that it has been quite up to the average, to say the least. The excellent Christmas trade in the less expensive goods goes to show that the yeas 1885 has been one in which those who depend upon employment for their money have been doing very well. We speak of these things because there is a general dis position to overlook the things in our favor and to feel that we have had greater difficulties to contend with than be set us. lii»ion Journal. Bulgaria. The war between Bulgaria and Ser •ia, which may end in a general Euro pean conflict, will no doubt make am information regarding either of tin. countries now engaged, interesting reading. Bulgaria is a political division of Eu ropean Turkey, which stretches along the right bank of the Danube 1'ro-n tin influx of the Timok to its mouth, and is bounded on the south by tha main chain of the Balkan, which separates il from Ruinelia. On the uist it i washed by the Black Sea, :».nd on tht west is conterminous with Servia. Its area is estimated to be -2,932 squart mites. It may be roughly described as a great table-land, sloping with more or less regularity towards the river, hav ing its surface broken with numerous offshoots and undcrfalls of the South ern Mountains, and furrowed by the channels of the many streams to which those heights give rise. Throughout the mo3t of the province the soil is excellent, and if it were properly cultivated would yield the richest crops. As it is, the inhabitants are able not only to supply their own wants, but Horace Stocking, of Ccntrc ville, Ind., had been afflicted with Ca tarrh for about 20 ears, and become quite deaf from its efleets. He had tried many medicines, but none re lieved him until he commenced using Piso's Keniedy for Catarrh. He can now hear as well as ever. to furnish a considerable export of agricultural produce. The buffalo is the animal chiefly used in agricultural labor, though horses are sufliciently common. Cows, pigs and goats are also kept, and sheep farming is largely carried on in many parts, but the character of the stocks "t very por. The population is about. 8,000,000. LnukliiK ]i«lure Leaping. Prof. Summer of Yale Colh-jo., re cently delivered an address to the students on social matters, in which he says: "Birth is a dire misfortune for many children, and their parents can not do enough for them in return for the inherited diseases and misfortunes which they bestow upon them." A tatc pajx commenting thereon adds: '•Freedom from hereditary taints of body and mind should be one of the conditions of marriage. Insanity, inebriety, phy-ical deformity or some distressing di-case is a terrible legacy to leave a child." Another paper has this paragraph: "Th" Wertern Rural does not doubt that loo.000 of the male adults of America die ouch year from ex* ecssive use of intoxicating liquors. Rum kills a very large number of men who were never in the gutter, or even so far gone as to stagger." There is food for thought for everv parent. No one doubts that consump tion. the scourge of New England, is largely handed down from parent to child. Can we doubt that an appetite for spirituous liquors may be inherited? Do parents pause to think that their indulgences in the wine cup, though they escape druukeness, may be a hard legacy to their children? Wine is the most insidiou foe of our public num. It has slaved its thousands by gentle approaches,- a sweet charmer leading to a dreadful maelstrom. A Devotee o 1 1 the imiie.

The story published in these columns e e n y o e o e s e N Y Democrat and Chronicle, created a deal of comment here as it has elsewhere. Apparently it caused even more com motion in Rochester, as the following from the same paper shows: Dr. J. B. lleuion, who is well-knowii not only In Rochester, but in nearly every part of America,sent an extended article to this paper a few days ago which was duly published, detailing hia remarkable experience and rescue from what seemed to be certain death. It would be impossible to enumerate the personal inquiries which hare been made at tir office as to the validity of the article, but they have been so num erous that further investigation of the subject was deemed nccessary. With this cud in view a representative of this paper called on Dr. lleuion at his residence on Andrews street, when the following interview occurred: "That article of yours, Doctor, has created quite a whirlwind. Are the statements about the terrible condition you were in, -,nd tho way you were res cued, such s you can sustain "Every /be of them and many ad ditional oies. 1 was brought so low by neglecting the first and most simple symptoms. I did not think I was sick. It is true I had frequent headaches felt tired most of the time could eat noth ing one day and was ravenous the next felt dull pains and my stomach was out of order, but I did not think it meant aaything serious. The medical profes sion has been treating symptoms iu stead of diseases foryears, and it is high I time it ceased. The symptoms 1 have just mentioued or any unusual action i or irritation of the water channels iu dicate the approach of kidney disease i more than a cough announces the com i ing of consumption. We do not treat the cough, but try to help the lungs. We should uot waste our time trying to relieve the headache, pains about tha body or other symptoms,but go directly to the kidneys, the source of mofet of these ailments." "This, thon, is what yon meant when you said that more than one-half the aths which occur arise from Bright's disease, is it, Doctor •'Precisely. Thousands of diseases are torturing peojpie to day. which in reality arc Bright s disease in some of its many forms. It is a hydra-headed monster, and the slightest symptoms should strike terror to every one who has them. I can look hack and recall I hundreds of deaths which physicians declared at the time were caused by paralysis, apoplexy, heart disease.pneu monia, malarial fever and other com rnon compla:nts. which I see now v*er caused by Bright'.-, disease." "And did all these cases have s.mple symptoms at first "livery one of them, and might have been cured as 1 was, by the timely use of the same remedy. I am getting my eye-- thoroughly opened in this matter and think 1 am helping others to sec th/ facts and their possible danger p-.'so." Mr. Warner, who was visited at his establishment on North St. Paul street, spoke very earnestly: i "It is true that Bright's disease had increased wonderfully, and we find, by reliable statistics, that from '70 to "80. its growth was over 250 per onnt. Look at the prominent men it has carried oil', and is taking off every year, for while many are dying apparently of paralysis aud apoplexy,they are really victims jf kidney disorder, which causes heart i disease,paralysis.apoplexy,elc. Nearly every week the papers record the death of some prominent man from this i scourge. Recently, however, the in i crease has been checked and 1 attribute i this to the general use of my remedy." i "Do you think many people are af flicted with it to-day who do not realize it?" "A prominent professor in a New Orleans medical college was lectin ing before his class on the subject of Bright's I disease. He had various fluids under microscopic analysis and was showing the students what the indications of this terrible malady were. 'And now, geu tlemen.' he said, 'as we hare .seen the unhealthy indications I will show you how it appears in a state of perfect health,1 and he submitted his own fluid to the usual test. As he watched the results his countenance suddenly chang ed—his color and command both left him and in a trembling voice he said: 'Gentlemen, I have made a painful dis covery have Bright's disease of the kidneys.' And in less than a year he wn dead. The slightest indications of any kidney difficulty should be enough to strike terror to any one."11 "You know of lir. Henion's cascP" "Yes, I have both read and heard of it." "It is very wonderful, is it not?" "No more so than a great many oth ers that have come to my notice a"s hav ing been cured by the same, means." "You believe then that Bright's dis ease can be cured?" "I know it can. I know it from my' own and the experience of thousands of prominent persons who worn given up to die by both their physicians and friends." "You speak of your own experience what A as it "A fearful ona. I had felt languid and untitled for business for years. IJut I did not know what ailed me. When, however, I found it was kidney diffi culty 1 thought there was little" hope auw so did the doctors. I have since, iearned that cue of the physicians of 1 i 1 tins city pointed me out to a gentleman uii the street one day, saying: 'There goes a man who will bo dead within a year..' I believe his words would have proved true if I had not providentially used the remedy now known as War ner's Safe Cure." "Did you make a chemical analysis of the case of Mr. 11. 11. Warner some three years ago, Doctor?" was asked Dr. S. A. Lattiiuore, one of the analysts of the state board of health. "Yes, sir." "What did this analysis show 3rottP" "A serious disease of the kidneys." "Did you thiuk Mr. Warner could re cover?" "No, sir. I did uot think it possible," "Do you know anything about the remedy which cured him?" "I have chemically analyzed it and find it pure and harmless." Dr. llenion was cured Jim years at/u and in tvdl and attending to his pro fessional duties to-day, in this city. The standing of Dr. Henion. Mr. War ner and Dr. Lattimore in the community is beyond question, and the statements they make «anuot for a moment be doubted. Dr. Demon's experience shows that Bright's disease of the kid neys is one* of the most deceptive and dangerous of all diseases, that it is ex ceedingly common, but that it can be cured if taken in time. The Kccentrlritie* of Hie Telephone. The lirst night after 1 placed a tele i phone in my office my wife fell dauger I ously ill and I at ouee rushed to the telephone and called up the doctor, After describing my wife's symptoms, I. waited for an answer. Presently a voice came hoarsely to tny ear: "(Jive her a good washing: that s all she needs you can't expect her to work well for tive years without wash ing. 1 would turn the hose ou her if I were you and when the dirt is all off polish her up with rags dipped in coal oil." I 1 was so paralyzed I could not speak for a moment, bi.it I tnen rung up another doctor, told him how ••iek my wife was and asked him what to do. And this was the answer: "Hang her up by the heels where the sun can strike her and when \ou have taken the hide off soak it in alum for three days But. with a howl of rage, I rushed off and walked a mile for a doctor. 1 subsequently found that the fiend at the central office had switched me with a mechanic and then a tanuer. and it was but a brief hour before the liend lay cold in death.
