It would have to be presented to me as a matter of duty and not of my seeking. John C. Nicholls. A “CLEAN KK-OUT” WANTED. What He is Expected to Do at a Ten- Cent Kestaurant. Frrr.n the Chicago Tribune. An advertisement appeared in a morn ing paper yesterday ior the services ot a man to “claan out a restaurant nights.” The proprietor offered board in payment for the services of the “cleaner-out,” and, notiijg the direction, a reporter for the Tribune visited the eating bouse, which is situated on the west side, for the pur pose oi finding out the exact nature of the services required and the quantity and quality of the remuneration. “No, sir,” said the proprietor, “1 don’t want a man to clean out the place when it is full ol hard characters, for it is out of them 1 make my money. Neither do I want him to clean out the provender when the day’s eating is finished. 1 want him to come here at 10 p. m. and remain here until 4 a. m.,sweep out. clean up the dirty dishes, and straighten tne bouse up generally. It is nearly an all-night job, but I can get plenty of i)iee (allows to do it for their three meals a day.” Toe reporter noticed that 10c. was the highest price chargtd tor a meal, and he ventured to ask the price of board by the week, “Two dollars, sir. and I’ll take all I can get at that price. 1 can fi eil a man for 10c., give him the same quality of meat and vegetables he would get at a $5-a-week boarding house, and make money. You notice I advertise any cut of meat, two kinds of vegetables, bread and butter, and a cup of coffee for 10c. 1 can make 4c. on every meal. 1 feed 400 per day, so you see I make money.” “Have you bad many applicants for the position you want filled?” “About twenty, and a mixed lot they were. Some were very genteel, sma-t -looking fellows, who sad they would lie glad to do anything tbat would insure them three 10c. meals per day. Onelel low ia an attendant at Rush Medical Col lege. He thought he would OOtr.o at first, but finally made up bis mind that the hours were a little too long for him and the distance too great to travel to meals. Several rusty-looking specimens called and spoke ol having seen better times, i didn’t want them, because I had my pick of some very respectable-looking appli cants, and besides one of those hungry looking fellows would cal tne out of house and home while I would be sleeping.” The reporter declined an invitation to dinner, and departed wondering if this man’s larder was like the widow’s barrel of oil, or if all boarding house keopers who charge ffi per week are robbing the people. Constipation, the curse oi our sedentary life, Dyspepsia, our national disease, and Rheumatism, which ootnes from acid stomach and from the sudden changes in our olimate, are quickly cured by taking one or two Rrandreth’s Pills every night for a month.

Chronics diseases are cured by taking from two to four of Brandreth’s Pills every night for a month. They ‘purge away the old diseased body. This you replace with new and healthy flesh, prepared by an invigorated digestion froiu simple, healthful food. INSTANCES OF HEROISM, Which were AVitryesseil at Charles ton During the Earthquake. Alany instances, says the correspondent ol the New York Sun, of heroism are re corded. One is worthy of special note. At the intersection ot Reed and King streets, as a wagon was going along, the shaking of tbe dreadful visitation caused the poor animal attached to the wagon, as if by intuition, to stop, shivering, in his tracks. No voice, no encouragement, no application ot the lash could induce him to move. In an instant afterward the earthquake was on the city aim the whole gable end of a store near the doomed driver fell with a crash to the street. Everything was involved in one promis cuous ruin. It was just here, however, that the sublimity of human during was evoked by the catastrophe which had just been witnessed by dozens of persons. At least a dozen oi those, before the earth had recovered from tho vibration, rushed over on the pile made by the dismantled gable on the street and made desperate efforts to rescue tbe man, who had boon instantly killed. This happened even while the dust of the house was still fall- ing. A man who was on King street, near Reid, at the very instant of the shocksnw some manifestations of heroic human na ture that should be put on record, in that neighborhood are a number of stores kept by small proprietors, whose families live on the second floors. These stores are lighted in many instances by kerosene lamps, the explosion of which at that time and place caused the first fires. The premonitory sounds ot the oncoming t arthquake brought the people io Iheir feet. The first impulse was, of course, to flee to the streets, aud even before the ac tual shock occurred the pavements were filled with a terrorized and surging mass of men and women, it was the hour when all the children were in bed. Hardly had the excited citizens reached the streets when tho visitation launched itself upon tbe city from above or below in all its fury. There were vivid flashes of light in some stores and in others the liuhts went out and left such ot the inmates as re mained in utter darkness. The sudden blazes of light were the explosions of the kerosene lamps which occurred simulta neously with the first shock. Then ensued a scene of horror and dismay such as is beyond the power of pen to describe. The paralyzed senses of the frightened citi zens must have indeed been restored by miraculous interposition. Turning from their places of fanciod security in tbe open air, the thoughts of fathers and mothers and sisters went back to their little ones who had been abandoned on the second floors of the tottering houses. But tbe road to these unconscious sleep ers was tnrough flames or through houses wrapped in darkness. In the clothing stores the overturned lamps had ignited the lighter materials, and in an instant there were fires here, there arid every where. The light was sufficient to expose to the gaze of one outside the scenes that were being enacted within. Here an old man could be seen grasping in his trem bling hands whole sheets of blazing cloth aud rushing with them out into the street. The clothes of many who were engaged in the hazardous work of self-preserva tion caught on fire, and there is not tbe slightest exaggeration in saying that dozens ol these poor people fled back into ihe streets wrapped io a circle of flame. But they helped each other with tho en ergy which only such sublime moments could iuspire, and casualties by tire were happily averted. A lady, who is a very devout Catholic, thinks sneowes a gveatdeal to her blessed candle. When the shook of Tuesday night was over, and alter the house had com paratively settb'd dowi? on its pins, she went toiler trunk, where she kept the eandie, blessed tor heron Candlemas Day. This she at once lighted and, with an in lant in one arm and the other children following, the affrighted party started to escape lrom the mass of falling debris. The bouse, after its roekiugs had become a little mixed and the doors were jammed so that the fleeing party could notget into the streets through tne frontdoor. By the light of her blessed candle this brave lit tle Christian woman picked her way through a dark allev, overtoils of falling chimney tops and through a deathly shower of missiles, and tooK her little flock to Washington square. The candle was kept burning all night, its place being supplied with another as it expired, and as soon as it was known in the crowd that a “holy candle,” as J’rotestants call it, was lighted the owner was at. once surrounded by a crowd ot ladies and child ren. Not a breutn oi air was stirriug on Tuesday night and tbe "holy candle” shed its feeble light steadily until daybroak, giving at least a little comfort and cheer fulness to hearts that were sorely bowed down with woe. Saratoga Color 'll People. Troy Timm' Surat ’ja l.rttrr. The swell hotel for colored jieople, or rather the hotel for swell colored peopie, the Broughton House, has had a very (air season, at one time nearly 100 ot the wealthier classes ol colored people, mostly from Boston, New York and Phila delphia, being comfortably located there. A garden party was to have been given there, with P. Baltimore, Jr., of Troy, arid his friend, a noted colored physician of Philadelphia, as the active managers of tbe affair, but it was postponed until so late tbai it was given up. Broughton, the proprietor, is rated at nearly $250,000. Writing ot the colored people, I may say that the great majority of those" who come to Saratoga for service are nice-looking, very polite, very orderly and very industrious. The excejitfous are a few ignorant and sometimes vicious “coons,” who belong with the Western racing stables or who follow the races in some capacity. Tbe colored hotel waiters ol Saratoga are the bestiu the world. As in the case of some Troy departures by boat for Rockawav and Asbury Park, it takes ten or a dozen iriends to see one person off', so that the crowd of colored pe"ple about the Saratoga depot before the departure ol the night-boat train is something interesting to eontemplnte. You can hear the “good-by” kissing away down on Broadway, sometimes. And then the messages that aro audibly sent to “loved ones at home,” in Thomp son, Sullivan and Bleeekcr streets. South Filth avenue, and all the streets west of Fifth avenue beginning with the prefixes Twenty and Thirty,are fearfully aud won derfully touching and affectionate. Settling an Egyptian Conspiracy* Joat/uin Miller in the Chicago Timer, Some lew years ago, when nearing the upper rapids on the Nile, we were fore bidden the right of passage without heavy tribute. A big row was at once inaugurated in true Oriental fashion by the tellahs, and a noise like “an army with banners” was all about our ears. We bad several Englishmen on hoard, each one ol w hom swore loudly that he would write to the Times. An American, from Boston 1 think, swore at tbe blsck and rebellious natives in tiio most villain ous French 1 ever heard. And, as 1 am an American. 1 have heard a heap of bad French in my day. Another man, from Chicago i>erhaps, went and dug tip a couple of old pistols from the luggage room. But mean while a grizzled old fellow, who had hardly been heanl from all tbe way up, got on land with a Idg, heavy hickory stick, and he argued it out with that hickory stick in less tnan two min utes. He did not talk either in the French, English or Chicago language. In fact, he did not talk at all. But in leva tnan two minutes every one ol tbe conspirators who was not sprawling on the sand was pulling at the ropes, and we never had another word of truble. And ttie grizzled old fellow with tne stout hickory cane turned out to be an old California ranch man. 0 Cutirttra Krmrairo. A CHILD’S SUFFERING From Ffzonia. Ears and Scalp Covered with Scabs and Sores. Cured by Cuticura, My little eon, need 8 years, lias been afflicted with Eczema of i he sc dp, and at time* a great portion *f the body, ever since ho was 2 years old. It began in his ears and extended to his t'Culp, which became covered w ith scabs and sore's, and from which a sticky lluid poured out, causing iuten*e itching ami distress, and leaving his hair matted and lifeless. Under neath these scabs the skin was raw, like a piece of beefsteak. Gradually the hair came out and was destroyed, until but a small patch was left at the back of the head. My friends in Peabody know how my little boy ha* suffered. At night ho would scratch his head until his pillow was covered with blood. 1 used to tie Ins hands behind him, and in many wavs tried to prevent his scratching; but it was no use, he would scratch. I took him to the hospital amt to the best physicians in Peabody w ithout succors. About this time some friends, who hlid been cured by the ( ttici'ka Remedies, prevailed upon me to try them, i began to use them on the 15th of .January last. In seven months every particle of the disease was removed. Not a spot or scab remains on bis scalp to tell the story of b'Shiiucring His hair lias returned, ami is thick ami strong, and his scalp as sweet and clean as any child’s in the world. I cannot say enough to express iuv gratitude for this wonderful cure by the CCTiurKA Remedies, and wish all similarly afflicted to know that my statement is true ?>mi without exaggera tion. CHARLES MuKAY, Oct. 0, 1885. Peabody, Muss, l have seen Mr. McKay’s boy when badly affected with the Eczema. He was a pitiful sight to look at. I know that he has tried our b st physicians, and did all a father could do for a suffering child, but availed nothing, f know that the statements he has ma le you as regard*the curing of his boy by your Cuticur a Remedies are true in every particular. \vm .j.
