berland ilountains, in which the infected
district il situated, for four months, the
drought entailing not only an almost total
failure of crops, hut cutting oft the supply
of water. Difficulty was experienced in ob
taining water' for the stock in some
localities as early as the middle of August,
but no actual suffering among the inhabi
tants occurred until towards the end of
September, when the ordinary sources of
supply having, for the most part, failed,
tho mountaineers were compelled, in order
to sustain life, to obtain water for house
bold purposes from what is known a3
"poison" or mineral springs, in the moun
tains, or from the small amount remaining
in deep holes in the beds of creeks. A per
sistent use of this water soon developed a
peculiar disease, as deadly a3 Asiatic cholera
in nature, which ha3 ever since raged with
terrible fatality over half a dozen counties
in the two States of Virginia and Kecucky,
the loss of life thu3 far being variously es
timated at from 500 to 803. Among children
and adults well up in years, the mortality
Las been greatest, but no class has been ex
empt. In a number of instances, especial
ly along the forks of McLean's creek, a tri
butary of tho Big Sandy, and in the valley
of tho Fowell, emptying in tho Tennessee,
entire families have perished, while in num
erous other cases but one or two members of
tho household survived. Few recover from
the disorder, from CO to SO per cent, of
those attacked dying, this being accounted
for hy the fact that pure water is still unob
tainable, and proper food and medical atten
dance cannot be had. The drying-up of the
streams has necessitated the stoppage of
numerous small grist mi)l3 along the moun
tain valley, and the population for tho most
part appears to be in the most abject want
and misery. The locality is almost inacces
sible to the outside world, there being no
railroad within 103 miles, and obtaining re-f
liable news is very difficult.but even if half o
what is alleged be true the calamity is one
of the most serious nature and calls for
prompt action by tho authorities and the
THE FIVE MEWDIAX LINES
From "Wlilcli the New Standards or
Time Will be Measured.
Professor N. Slater furnishes the following
interesting data to the Sacramento Bee :
The railroad managers of the United States
and British possessions seem to have agreed
upon fire different meridian lines as stan
dards of time for the running of trains upon
their respective road3. These lines are the
following meridians west from Greenwich:
Tho sixtieth degree, tho seventy-fifth, the
ninetieth, the ono hundred and fifth, and
tho one hundred and twentieth. These
meridians are fifteen degrees apart, and the
difference of time between them is sixty
minutes or one hour.
The sixtieth degree runs a little west of
Newfoundland, across tho eastern end of the
island of Cape Breton, and out in the At
lantic ocean more than Beven degrees east
of Boston. .
Tho seventieth degree runs through the
eastern part of New York, out westerly from
Albany, about one-fourth of the distance to
wards Buffalo. It also runs through the
western part of New Jersey, and & little east
"of the city of Philadelphia.
Tho ninetieth degree runs through Wis
consin near the centre, through tho .western
part of Illinois, through the western part of
Mississippi, and very nearly through the
centre of Memphis and New Orleans.
Tho 105th degree runs through Montana
And Wyoming Territories, through Colorado
a little east of its centre; through New Mex
ico about one-third of the distance from the
east side toward its western boundary, and
through the western part of Texas.
Tho 120th degree runs on the boundary
line between Nevada and California, to the
Stato of Oregon, and through the central
part of Santa Barbara county into the Pacific
ocean. Sacramento City is about one de
gree and 25 minutes west of this last named
meridian'; and Los Angeles about one and
three-fourths degrees east of ' it. This
would make the local timo of Sacramento
five and two-thirds minutes slower than
the time on tho last standard meridian, and
tho local Urno of Los Angeles, seven minutes
faster than the time on the same meridian.
The local time of San Francisco would be a
fraction less than ten minutes slower than
on this standard line of 120 degrees west
longitude from Greenwich.
Wtaat Is this Disease lliat is Cosuiu;
Like a thief in tho night, it steals
in upon us unawares. Many persons
have pains about tho chest and sides, and
sometimes in the back. They feel dull
and sleepy ; the mouth has a bad taste,
especially in the morning. A sort of
sticky slime collects about the teeth. The
appetite is poor. There is a feeling like a
heavy load on the stomach ; sometimes a
faint all-gone sensation at the pit of the
stomach which food does not satisfy. The
eye? are sunken, the hands and feet be
come cold, and feel clammy. After a
while a cough sets in at first dry, but after
a few months it is attended with a greenish-colored
expectoration. The afflicted
one feels tired all the while, and sleep
does not seem to afford any rest. After a
time he becomes nervous, irritable, and
gloomy, and has evil forebodings. There
is a giddiness, a sort of whirling sensation
in the head when rising up suddenly.
The bowels become costive ; the skin is
dry and hot at times ; the blood becomes
thick and stagnant ; the whites of the
eyes become tinged with yellow, the urine
is scanty and high-colored, depositing a
sediment after standing. There is fre
quently a spitting up of the food, some
times with a sour taste, and sometimes
with a sweetish taste ; this is frequently
attended with palpitation of the heart ;
the vision becomes impaired with spots
before the eyes ; thre i3 a feeling of great
prostration and weakness. All of these
symptoms are in turn present. , It is
thought that nearly one-third of our popu
lation has this disease in some of its varied
forms. It has been found that medical
men have mistaken the nature of this
disease. Some have treated it for a
liver complaint, others for kidney dis
ease, etc., etc., but none of the various
kinds of treatment have been attended
with success, because the remedy should
bo such as to act harmoniously upon
each one of these organs, and upon the
stonach well; for in dyspepsia (for
this is really what the disease is) all of
these organs partake of this disease and
require a remedy ihat will act upon all at
the same time. SiegePs Curative Syrup
acts like a charm in this class of com
plaints, giving almost immediate relief.
The following letters from chemists of
standing in the community where they
lie show in what estimation the article is
John Archer, Harthill, near Sheffield:
I can confidently recommend it to all who
may be suffering from liver or stomach
complaints, having the testimony of my
customers, who have derived great benefit
from tho Syrup and Pills. The sale is
George A. Webb, 141 York Street, Bel
fast: I have sold a large quantity, and
the parties have testified to its being what
you represent it.
J. S. Metcalf, 55 Highgate, Kendal: I
have always taken great pleasuro in re
commending the Curative Syrup, for I
have never known a case in which it has
not relieved or cured, and I have sold
Robt. Gould, 27 High Street, Audover:
I have always takn a great interest in
your medicines and I have recoommended
them', as I have fouud numerous Cases of
cure for their use. ' ' ' ' '
Thomas Chapman, West Amckland: I
find that the radT steadily . increuises.' I
sell ; more of . your medicines than any
other kind.'- ; , . ' . ' . . ;
NV Darroll, Clun, Salop: All who "buy
it are pleased, and recommend it.
Jos. IJalkwill, A. P. &.; Kingsbridge:
The public seem.to appreciate their great
A. Armstead, Market Street, Dalton-in-Furness:
It is needless for me to say
that your valuable medicines have preat
sales in this district greater than any
other I know of, giving great sasisfaction.
Robt. Laine, Melksham: I can well re
commend the Curative Syrup from having
proved its efficacy for indigestion myself.
Friockheini, Arbroath, Forfarshire, Sep--
tember 23, 1882. Dear Sir : Last year; I
sent you a letter recommending Mother
Sei gel' s Syrup. I have very ruuch plea
sure in still bearing testimony to the very'
satisfactory results of the famed Syrup
and Pills. . Most medicines die . out with
me, but ilother Seigel has had a steady
sale over since I commenced, and is. 'still
in as great demand as when I- first began
to sell the medicine. The cures which
have come under my notice are chiefly
those' of liver complaint - and general
A certain minister in my neighborhood
says it is the only thingw hich has bene
fited him, and restored him to his normal
condition of health after being unable to
preach for a considerable length of time.
I could mention also a great many other
cases, but space would not allow. A near
'friend of mine, who is very much addicted
to costiveness, or constipation, finds that
Mother Seigel's Pills are the only pills
which suit his complaint. All other pills
cause a reaction which is very annoying.
Mother Seigel's Pills do not leave a bad
after-effect. I have much pleasure in
commending again to suffering humanity
Mother Seigel's medicines, which are no
sham. If this letter is of any service you
can publish it.
Yours very truly,
(Signed) William S. Glass,
A. J. White, Esq. Chemist.
15th August, 18S3.
Dear Sir, I write to tell you that Mr.
Henry Killier, of Yatesbury, Wilts, in
forms mo that he suffered from a severe
form of indigestion for upwards of four
years, and took no end of doctor's medi
cine without the slightest benefit, and
declares Mother Seigel's Syrup, which he
got from me, has saved his life.
