SALT RHEUM FOR 30 YEARS

tlie Body Cured.
Messrs. Weeks & Potter : Oentlemen, I have boon a
great bufferer with Salt Rhoum tor 30 years, oommea
cing iu my had and faca and extending over the
greater psrt taf my body. I have taken gallons of med
icines for the blood of different binds and trtet good
phyeicinne, all of wbich did me no good, and I came
to the ooncinaion that I ceroid -not b cured. But a
friend called my attention to an article in the Union
on Skin Diseases, and X got a box of Outiotira. The
first application was a great relief and the third tosk
the scales all off, and 1 felt like a new man. I have
used three 50-oent boxes and my skin is smooth and X
consider myself entirely cured. Hoping that this may
be seen by some one afflicted as I have been (if there is
any) Is my earnest wish. And I cheerfully reoommend
it to all persons with like diseases.
Yon re truly. B. WILSON LORD.

The Cntlcura Soap should be used for cleansing all

The patient commenced u!r;g the Cuticura and Im

He had been confined to his bed for two and one
half yeara. Had not had his clothes on during this
time. Last week he dresed for the first time.
When he walked, there would at hBt on quart of
scales come off of him.
This happened every day.
We llilns it is a wonderful cars.
We do not say he is cured, bnt he is In a fair way to

tive to the procedure of the Governor and
Gounoil, and so as to exclude as faros possible
every other form of the issue. The Governor
states the case in his own way. He asks
whether, under certain circumstances which
he assumes, a certain course can bs legally
taken. It is possible to answer this question
affirmatively without declaring that another
course would not also be consistent with the
law. These questions, on the whole, seem
ingeniously devised, not to ascertain whether
the Governor and Gounoil anight not have
done substantial justice under the law, but
whether they have not kept within the forms
of law while doing substantial injustice. They
are not asked in the right spirit.
drsd in 1878. Notwithstanding this wholesale
slaughter, the animals appeared' in even in
creased numbers last year, and rewards were
again offered, with the result that, np to the
closing of the lists for the season, head money
was paid on 84,386 hamsters, or 3.C11 more
than in the previous year. It is calculated that
each female produces ten young ones per an
num, sothat, assuming half of those. slaugh
tered to have been females, those killed last
year would have produced an additional
progeny of nearly 400,000, being at the rate
of 15,005 to every square mile of land in the
district.

Few bank failures have had more important
and melancholy results than the failure of the
City of Glasgow Bank, which occurred about
fifteen months ago. Some idea of the char
acter and extent of this disaster maybe gained
from the report of the liquidators of the bank
reoently submitted to the shareholders.
'When the liquidators began their work,
October 22, 1878, the total liabilities of the
bank were about 04,000,000 and the assets
about $38,000,000, leaving a deficiency of
about $26,000,000. For this amount eaoh
shareholder was jointly and severally liable to
the full extent of his property. Though he
had but a single share and though his title was
that of a mere trustee without benefit to him
self, he could be compelled not only to pay
his proportion of the bank's debts but to give
all he had to make up the deficiency of fellow
shareholders who were nnable to respond.
The liquidators, as was their duty, have held
the shareholders to their responsibility, and
the result has been widespread financial ruin.
From the assets so far about $24,000,000 have
been realized. November 13, 1S78, the
shareholders were assessed pro rata $500 for
every $100 of stock or, $21,000,000 on the
outstanding capital of $4,200,000. This first
assessment alone exhausted the means of
many of the shareholders, and at the time the
report was made up it had only yielded $10,
600,000. In March, 1879, a second assess
ment was, therefore, laid on the shareholders
still solvent of $2,250 per $100, amounting
altogether to $39,000,000. This assessment
has produced $11,500,000, making altogether
about $22,000,000 to be added to the $24,000,
000 collected from the bank's assets, or $46,
000,000 toward paying the $64,000,000 of
debts. Preferred creditors took $8,000,000
of the money, and the expenses of the liqui
dation $500,000 more. The general creditors
have been paid $37,000,000, or two-thirds the
amount of their claims, leaving about $18,
500,000 still to be provided for, without
counting interest. The uncollected assets of
the tank will, it is thought, produce $14,
000,000, leaving $4,500,000 and the interest
to be contributed by 2C9 shareholders out of
the original 1,810, the other 1,550 having
been completely ruined by the two calls al
ready made. The liquidators expect to make
another dividend of 9 per cent, to the credi
tors very soon. It must be admitted that
they have done their very disagreeable and
ruinous work promptly and thoroughly.
What the failure of the Oity of Glasgow
Bank meant to many is vividly shown by the
action Qt 599 of the shareholders who were
nnable to meet the first call made upon them.
They applied for a discharge of their obliga
tions on making a complete surrender of their
estates. Most of them also offered, with the
assistance of friends, to pay the value of their
estates, on being allowed to retain the same.
Before accepting these offers a statement was
required, verified by a declaration before a
Justice of the Peace, according to a printed
form, in which, in reply to a series of queries,
information of the most minute character was
demanded from the persons liable, as to their
means and estate, and their expenditure since
the stoppage of the bank. The information
thus supplied was subjected to careful exami
nation, and after the basis of an arrangement
had been adjusted with eaoh contributory, it
was submitted to a oommittee on contribute
ries ; and after it had been approved by that
oommittee it was submitted for final sanction
by the court- Thus nearly six hundred per
sons were deprived of every dollar they had at
one fell swoop,and the settlement of the bank's
affairs will prove the ruin of more than fifteen
hundred who depended upon it for profit-
Well secured as the creditors of the City of
Glasgow Bank were by the bank's own share
holders, they seem also to have a hold upon
the shareholders of another bank, the Caledo.
nian. This bank held $2,000 worth of City of
Glasgow stock, and thus the shareholders in
that bank became liable for the debts of the
City of Glasgow Bank. Consequently they
began selling or transferring their shares to
irresponsible parties in the hope of escaping
assessments. Learning this, the liquidators
of the City of Glasgow Bank requested the
directors of the Caledonian to take step3 for
closing their register of shareholders. Negotia
tions ensued which resulted in an agree
ment that a petition for winding up the
bank should be presented, as the only means
available for having the register closed, and
the process of substitution of probably im
pecunious for substantial shareholders
rested, Considerable delay took plaoe under
this petition, in the oourse of which the oon
stitution of the Caledonian Bank was altered
to the effect of preventing any transfer of
stock without the approval of the Board of
Directors, and the petition for winding up
was withdrawn. To what extent the share
holders of the Caledonian Bank will suffer re.
mains to be seen.
No ofte can realize the misery and distress
caused by this failure. Those directly re
sponsible for it the directors of the bank-
arenow undergoing punishment in prison.
but .this fact is small comfort to those whose
property is gone and who are suffering the
pangs of poverty and discouragement.

Father Xidcn, a Doniinioaa monk:, has been
having great success as a preacher in Paris.
He is thoroughly acquainted with scientific
thought and has attempted to harmonize
modern sooiety and the gospel. Lately he
preached against divorce, taking the ground
that marriage should be indissoluble. Divorce,
he said, belongs to a low stage of civilization ;
an inharmonious marriage ought to be borne
as a moral discipline, and in the interest of
offspring and society. Civil marriages should
be as indissoluble as those of the Church, both
for the sake of the aggrieved parties and of
society. He condemns second marriages by
women. On a recent Sunday Father Didoa
announced at the close of his discourse that
the course of sermons which he was preach
ing was suspended by the direction of his su
periors. There was some sensation in the au
dience when he announced the discontinuance
of his course, and a voice exclaimed, "it is in
tolerance." The preacher, however, an
nounced that he expected to reoccupy the
pulpit next Advent and next Lent should
preach in Trinity church, where he should be
at the service of the noblest cause whioh could
attract a man, a patriot, and a believer
namely, harmony between modem society and
the gospel; between authority, without which
there was no sooiety, and liberty, without
which there was no individualism ; between
scionoe and reason, without which there was
no progress ; and the general religion crown
ing tbem, without which there was nothing
divine. There is considerable curiosity to see
whether the Church will permit those liberal
discourses. There is said to be great sympa
thy with them among laymen and many
priests.
There is no very widespread feeling in
Canada in favor of annexation, if we may be
lieve the Toronto Mail, a leading Conserva
tive papt -. The Mail sayB : "The hostiio
measures oy whioh American statesmen hoped
to coerce the Dominion into close relations
with the Union have produced a diametri
cally opposite effect. The termination of the
reciprocity treaty knit Canada to the empire
by closer bonds than before. During the
prolonged palsy of our manufactures aud
commerce which was brought to a close by
the definite adoption of a national' policy
there were perhaps some, as in 1849, who
dreamed of annexation. Now there is no
possible pretext for the notion that any dis
loyal feeling prevails in the Dominion. No
power in Canada can punish a man for advo
eating the severance of the imperial tie. The
mother country would oertainly never fire a
shot in order to confine Canada against he t
will in colonial bonds. So far from indepeu
denoe freeing us from trouble it would mam
festly morease it. Living side by side with a
strong power, how long would this oountry be
permitted to retain its autonomy ? The flimsy
disguise under whioh two or three mask their
ulterior purposes covers annexation. The
first dares scarcely utter a plea to the Canadian
people. The latter is masked because it dare
not be shown. The Chinese wail on the other
side of the border has made a British nation
ality of us. Certainly we shall not leave the
parental roof while we retain a natural respect
for an indulgent mother, and we shall show
our inherited courage to the last in fighting
for her and for ourselves." This is what the
Mail professes to think. Meanwhile the inter
est felt by Canadians in the annexation ques
tion is increasing.

flow the Prayers of Two Little F.rul-
grraiits who Hong Their Stocking
on the Car Window Were Answered.
From the Bradford (Pa.) Era.
On Christmas eve, as the night exoress on
the Erie railroad left Jersey City, there were
seated in a car a poor woman and her two lit
tle children, aged about four and five years,
going to the far West A conversation be
tween the mother and children in which Santa
Olaus was talked of was listened to by the
passengers. The mother told her little blue-
yea girl that as they were in the cars Santa
Claus could not give them any presents be
oause the train was running too fast for him
to get on. This statement cast a shade of
gloom over the bright-faced children. They
sat for some time in meditative silence. It
was soon observed that the little travelers
were growing sleepy. Tears gathered in
many eyes as the little ones kneeled on the
car cushions to lisp their evening prayers.
The little girl said, "Please tell good Santa
Clans that we are on this train gomg to see
papa, and if he can to put some presents in
little Joey and Maggie's stookings hanging up
on the oar window. Amen." The children
then hung up their tiny stookings by the ear
window, in a few minutes more they were
soon asleep in the arms of their mother. Af
ter a pause a gentleman in front of them
spoke to the passengers as follows : "You
bsve heard the prayers of these two little
children. Now I will give $1 towards making
them happy when they wake up in tho morn
ing." He then passed his hat around the oar
aud collected $5.75. He next bought some
candy, oranges and figs and a picture book for
each, whioh with two more silver dollars he
placed in the little stockings. When they
awakened in the morning and saw their stock
ings full the little girl exclaimed, "Oh, mam
ma, see what Santa Claus has found us be
cause we prayed."
The Maine Complication.
Tlie Qnsktknn Submitted to tho Su
preme Court by the Governor,
Following is the list of questions prepared
by the Governor of Maine with the advice and
assistance cf his legal counsel, to be submitted
to the supreme Court :
V hen the uovernorand Council decide that
th-jre ii no return from a oity on whioh re
presentatives can be summoned to attend and
ase lue:r scats in the Legislature, is it their
duty to order a new election, or is it compe
tent for the House of Kepressntatives, if it
shall appear that there was an election of suoh
Representatives to'admit them to seats, though
no return thereof was made and delivered to
the office of the Seoretary of State ?
It K competent for the Governor and Coun
cil to allow the substitution of other evidenoe
in plaoe of the returned oopies of such lists
as are provided for in article 4, part 1, sec
tion o ot the constitution, to enable them to
determine what persons appear to ba elected
Representatives to the Legislature by a plu
rality of all the votes returned ?
it a return signed by a majority of the
Selectmen cf a town, or the Aldermen of a city,
valid within the requirements of same sec
tion ?
Is a return by tho aldermen of a oity which
does not give the number of votes cast for
each person voted for as a member of the
Legislature, and does not show what parsons
were voted for as such member in any one
of the several wards of such oity, u valid re
turn within the requirements of the same section?
Are returns from towns or cities which are
not attested by the Town or City Clerk valid
within the same section t
Have the Governor and Counoil a right to
reject the returns of the election of members
of the Legislature, required by tho same sec
tion from the officers of towns, which were
not made, signed and sealed up in open town
meeting I
Is the return of two persons purporting to
bs the Selectmen of a town valid and sufficient
evidence of the vote of the town when it ap
pears that there were at the time of the meet
ing at which the election was had but two
Selectmen of that town ?
Can a person who is not a citizen of the
United States at the time be legally elected or
constituted a Selectman of the town ?
If a ballot box has a distinguishing mark in
the judgment of the Governor and Counoil,
such as would make it illegal under the statute,
have they authority to disregard it in their
ascertainment of what persons appear to be
eieotcd, whore U appears by tho ouioLJ rotu.n ,
of the offioers of the town that suoh vote was
received by the Selectmen, subject to the ob
jection, and its legality referred to the Gov
ernor and Uouncu for decision f
If the names of any persons appear in the
return without any number of votes being
stated or carried out against them, either in
words or figures, is it the duty of the Govern
or and Council to treat those persons as hav
ing tnewamo number of votes as another per
son received for the same office, and whose
name is placed first in the return, if they find
dots under the figures or words set against
such other person's name ?
Have the txovernor and Council the legal
right to decide what kind of evidence they
will receive, and what the mode of proceeding
before them shall be to enable them to de
termine the genuineness of returns required
by the article and section-of the constitution
above mentioned ?
If the Governor and Council have before
them two lists of votes returned from the
same town, differing materially from each
other in the numbsrof votes returned as cast
for the same persons, but identical in all other
rnspeuts, both having been duly received at
tho Secretary's office, and they have no evi
dence to enable them to determine which is
the true aud genuine return, are they required
to treat tbem as valid, and if so which ?
Spelling; of Shakespeare's Name.
From the London Truth.
Under the title of "which shall it be Shar
per, or Shakespeare ?" the veteran Shakes
pearean soholar, Mr. J. Halliwell-Phillips,
has printad for private oustriDution a sman
pamphlet, whioh coea far to settle the vexed
question of the spelling of Shakespeare's
name. Mr. Furnivall seemed to many people
to stand on solid ground when he affirmed
that the great dramatist surely knew how to
spell his own name. His signature occurs
tUree times in his will, and there it is spelled
Shakspere. What could be more conclusive t
Happily for the interests of minute contro
versy, the form in whioh Shakespeare wrote
his name on this occasion is not so conclusive
as it seems. People were not so particular in
the Elizabethan age as they are now about the
spelling of tneir names, and, if anything, had
a preference for varying the spelling, as if to
try bow their names wonld look lu diucrent
forms. Nowadays Browne would consider it a
deliberate and intentional insult to write his
name without the e, and Smyths would throw
a letter into the fire if it came addressed to
him as plain as Smith. But Mr. Halliwell
Phillips has collected a number of instances
to prove, what he does not point out for the
first time, that the men of the seventeenth
century, even of the first families, above all
suspicion of not being able to spell, did not
cars for uniformity. Thomas Fuller says he
has seen the honorable name or v liners writ
ten 14 several different ways in their own evi
denoe. Shakespeare's son-in-law signed him
self indifferently Hawle, Halle, and Haule;
Bowley, the poet, Eouley, Rowleye, and Row
ley ; Alleyne, the actor, Alleyne, Alleyn, Al
lin, and Allen. With these and many other
examples to back him, Mr. Hardiwell-Phil-lips
may well contend that to follow signa
tures would "revolutionize the system of ear
ly nominal orthography and lead to prepos
terous results." But what authority are we
to follow ? We have spoken of Mr. Halliwell
Phillips' pamphlet as settling the question,
but perhaps we should rather say that it un
settles the question. He does not, however,
leave us without a guiding principle. We
should spell the first syllable, he thinks, as it
is pronounced. We do not pronounce it
"Shak-pere," and, therefore, should not spell
it "Shax-pere." It was pronounced "Shake
spear" by his literary contemporaries, and so
spelled by Ben Johnson, by the editors of the
first folio of bis works, and by himself, or
printers under his supervision, in two printed
letters. People may, therefore, in defiance
of the New Shakspere Society, go on spelling
it Shakespeare, without feeling that they
thereby oast upon the poet the imputation
that he did not know how to spell bis own
name. .
