Faeraot Voting In England. t Fleetwood, Eng., Chronicle, Oct. I, 1883.] An extraordinary cage of fnggot-voting came to light in the Revision Court at Ox ford laat week. Rev. Waehbourno West, bursar of Llncolu Colcge, claimed a vote for *he city. Objection wag taten to the claim on the ground that the reverend gen tleman did not occupy the houae which con ferred the franchise. Ai, however, Mr. West stated that he owned the house and had used It during the year, the ob)-ctlou was overruled. But the Interest in the claimant did not rest on the Immediate cause of his appearance in tlic Revision Court. Mr. West is a remark •bl« person, apart from Oxford, al together It appears that he enjoys the distinction • f being "one of the largest faggot-voters in England." Not only Is he qualified to vote In numerous constituencies but he spends much time and oney in exercising the privilege. It admitted that be had voted 17 times a last general election, and then was obliged to miss seven places In which he was en titled to perform the same operation. Alto gether Mr. West owns no fewer than 94 votes. Indeed, he claims to be represented In the House of Commous by as many as 64 memberaof Parliament. Groes as this abuse of the electoral franchise ie, it It difficult to see how it can be avoided so long as the suffrage Is not residential. Let us hope, however, that the new Reform bill will put an end to the proceedings of active and indus trious geutlemen like Mr. Washbourne West. A Man With an Ancastry. [St. James Uasette. ] The claim of a Hebrew gentleman to be exempted from aervlog on a Coroner's Jury on the ground of bln being a descendant of Aaron, the High Priest, and forbidden in that character to approach a dead body, seems a strange one to advance, aud so many years have passed since Aaron's death that the 1'act of being directly descended from hiui must in the present day be diffl to establish. In England It is considered a great thing to be able io trace back to a man who "came over with the Conqueror.'' In France a nobleman Is more than satisfied If he can prove that any one of bis forefathers took part in the Crusade«. What, however, in point of antiquity, is the first Crusade ? What is the Invasion of England by the Nor mans compared with such escape of the Israelites from Egypt and the giving out of the law in tho wilderness?— for these, and especially the latter, are the historic performances with which the ances tors of Mr. Lewis David Cohen, the gentle man who refuses to "enfer unto a corpse" is associated. Mr. Cohen had been five times fined, when he at last appealed to the Magis trates at Quarter Sessions, who, after hear ing his evidence and receiving the written testimony of the rabbi as to tho Aaron c descent, has ordered the rem ssion ot the Unes. eveut as the TELRURAFU ITEM. Utica, juwk 9,1 88. Fbawic W. Hoffman, clerk of the American District Telegraph Co. says: "Having h«d occa sion to use a inedioine for kidney trouble with a lame back, I was recommended by one of our Utlea druggists to use Hunt's Remedy, us he had sold a good deal of It to many of our leading lamllles here with great success for kwlnoy, liver, and urinary troubles. I purchased some, and huvo only used three bottles, ll hue cured me, and 1 to any one in need of the best medicine lor these complain»." truly recommend Hunt's Remedy p at to TUI. WIDOW'S MITE.

"Hunt's Rem edy," bar done me, and secondly, with the hope that my reoovery will induce some sufierer to do as I did, "use the great speclflo and bo oured." For nearly a whole yoar 1 was an invalld.unable to g» out of the house, and a great part of tho time confined to my bed, a living, powerless n moat dreadful of all diseases, "kidney oomplalnt." From tho long sufloring I became weak irom the loss of strength, with a lack ol vitality, and very much reduced In flesh. All this time I was taking various mi dl clnos, and under the oare of onr family doctor, and not receiving a particle ot help. 1 had al most despaired ol getting well when my atten tion was called to Hunt's Hemody by a boarder in my family. 1 commenced taking it(unknown to the doctor) with but little hopes ol relief. This non-belief was soon dispelled, however, as 1 daily begun to Improve. 1 continued tho use or Hunt's Rcmedy(and to mako a long story short), used eight bottles, disposed with tho doctor, aud to the surpriso of all who knew me, aud tny own great satisfaction, became as well as ever. All pains and achos vanished, appe tite returned, gained strength and. flesh, and to-day consider myself as well asever, and only too glad to place my testimony with that of many othors. That your medicine, "Hunt's Remedy," brought mo from a sick-bed 1 well know, aud many people who know of my condition pro almost miraculous 1 mu happy enjoying excellent health,thanks to subject nf nounco my to say 1 your valuablo msdicino.
