AN INCOMPARABLE ALIMENT FOR THE
CROWTH AND PROTECTION OF
INFANTS AND CHILDREN.
A SUPERIOR NUTRITIVE IN CONTINUED
FEVERS, AND A RELIABLE REMEDIAL
ACENT IN ALL DISEASES OF THE
STOMACH AND INTESTINES.
TTTHIS Justly celebrated Dietetic Preparation Is, In composition, principally the CLUTEN
ill derived from the WHITE WINTER FLINT WHEAT CEREAL, a solid extract, the
m- mention of an eminent Chemist. It has not only been highly recommended but
certified to by a large number of Chemists and Physicians representing a very high degree
of medical scienceas the Safest, Most Acceptable and Reliable Food for the Crowth and
Protection of INFANTS and CHILDREN, and for MOTHERS lacking Sufficient Nourish
ment for their offspring.
Unlike those preparations made from animal or vlarous matter, which are liable to
stimulate the brain and Irritate the digestive organs,, It embraces in Its elementary compo
sitionThat which makes strong Bone and Muscle. That which makes good Flesh and
Blood. That which Is easy of Digestion never constipating. That which Is kind and
friendly to the Brain, and that which acts as a preventive of those Intestinal Disorders
Incidental to Childhood.
And, while It would be difficult to con
ceive of anything In Food or Dessert more
Creamy and Delicious, or more Nourishing
and-Strengthening as an aliment In Fevers.
Pulmonary Complaints, Dyspepsia and Cen
eral Debility, Its Rare Medicinal Excellence In
all Intestinal Diseases, especially In Dysentery,
Chronic Diarrhea and Cholera Infantum has
been Incontestably proven.

From tne Hon. WUI. TAYLOR, 8u
Senator ot XVXattacnusetts).
Messrs. Weeks & potter : Gentlemen, To say that I
am grateful is only a poor expression of my feelings,
but it is the best word I can use, for I feel It in every
sense of the word. I have been a great sufferer with
skin diseases for the last twelve (12) years. My head
and face being oovred with sores, I could not rest
with the burning heat and itching of the parts affected
and was confined to my house for weeks at a time. My
disease has been calld Eczema, of a most aggravated
type, by many physioians, but I doubt if erer fully un-
uojBfcwu uj any oi toem. At was more use m uuixiuiiiav-
tion of several skin humors. I have spent much mon
ey seeking a cure, and in 1867 1 went to Europe, and
conujxea some ox tne nest p&ys-cians in Ajonaon. i re
ceived temporary relief onlv.for in the spring it would
break out again as bad as ever. When I came back to
Boston. I was t ld by many friends that Dr.
(whose reputation for the cure of those diseases was of
the highest order) could cure me. I waited on the
doctor ; he prescribed for me. I followed his advice
for six months, and I can safely say, without any Im
provement. I tried other physicians, and among them
Dr. , of Vast Boston, and Dr. , of city
proper, but all to no purpes.. They did me no good ;
thir remedies were so ineffectual that at no time did
Z feel that a cure would result from them.
I have swallowed five hundred" arsenic pills, 5.200
grains, and taken bottle after bottle of internal reme-
aies, oesides ail tne external applications l nave used,
but the effect was the same. I becto-e satisfied that I
could not be cured, but might be kept from getting
Now, about torPB months ago, Mr. Meehan, a gentle
man well known to Boston people, called my attention
to your Outicura, and promised wonderful results if I
would only make a trial. He told cos of bis own expe
rience with it, and so persevered on me that I went
with him to a drag store and bought two large boxes
of Outicura, and some Outicura op, and commenced
to use it according to the directions. There was so
much humor lodged within the skin, that as soon as I
commence i the use of cutienra it came to the surface
and festered, until vast quantities had come out and
greatly intensified my sufferings for about two weeks.
But I did not mind this, as I felt that I was going to
get rid of the humr when I saw it coming to the sur
face in such la'ge quantities. After the first two or
three weeks cse of this remedy, I was greatly enoour
acred by a gradual lessening oi the inflammation of i
number of painful sores. I carefully, faithfully, and
cheerfully fotlowed the directions to the letter, feeliug
each week nearer a cure, until at the present moment,
after three months use of Cuticura, and twelve years
of as constant suffering as was ever endured, lean say
that I am cured, and p ton ounce my case the moot re
markable on record, t have been so elated with my
success that I have stopped men on the street who
were afflicted, and told tnem to gt the Cuticura and
it would cure them. This is why 1 am so grateful to
you, xor x neneve it to oe tne oest ana greatest aiscov
sry of the age, and that it will cure all who are suffer

THE WEAKNESS OF N I H IX ISM.
Ths condition of affairs in Russia continues
to grow mora and mora melancholy, looked at
from any point of view. The Nihilists have
professed to be working in the interests of the
people and to secure for them a government
under whioh they could hare more freedom,
The resalt of their efforts appears in the im
perial ukase just issued. The Czar says :
"Being fhmly determined to put an end to
the repeated attempts of criminals to under
mine the order of the State and society, a su
prems executive commission is established in
St. Petersburg for the protection of order."
General Melikoff is appointed to the head of
the commission, and the appointment of its
other members has been or is to be made on
General Melikoff's suggestion, by imperial or
dinance. The head of the commission has,
moreover, the right to summon npon the
commission all whose presence he may con
sider useful In order to give a united char
acter to the action of all authorities, the head
of the commission, setting aside the right of
ths commander-in-chief of St. Petersburg,
has direct control over all political trials held
in the capital, in the military district of St.
Petersburg and throughout the empire. All
local authorities, governors-general and town
commandants are placed nnder the jurisdic
tion of the head of the commission, and all
employes 'in the various departments are
bound to afford him their entire co-operation.
The head of the commission" is at liberty to
adopt any means which may appear to him
desirable for the protection of order in the
empire, and the orders he may issue are to be
unconditionally obeyed. Anything more dea
potio than this could hardly be desired by the
worst enemy of the Russian people.
The Nihilists have not only succeeded in
making the burdens of the people harder to
bear, but they have made it impossible for the
Czar to do anything but crush out the con
spiracy, which he will undoubtedly do if he
is not killed. They have also, by their crimes,
deprived their cause of the sympathy and sup
port which were indispensable to its life and
triumph. In an elaborate article on Nihilism
the Cologne Gazette says on this point :
The Russian peasant, although he detests
his sooial superiors, and is nasily ezoited to
fury against the officials who render his very
existence a burden to him, can never be per
suaded to conspire against his Emperor. So
it came to pass that some of the Nihilist
agents got heartily thrashed by the mou jiks,
while others were unceremoniously laid hold
of and handed over to the authorities. Since
April 14 the Nihilists havo been undermining
their own ground, for no decent Russian feels
any sympathy or compassion for regicides.
The Russian people are strongly addioted to
coquetting with socialistic ideas ; but its eyes
have been opened to a great many fallacies
within the last twelve months. . The power
and prestige of the Nihilists have suffered
considerably by their recent failures, and by
the whole-hog measures of the several mili
tary Governors-General to whom the Czar
has committed the task of suppressing the in
surrectionary movement. Their ranks have
been thinned by innumerable arrests, and
moreover a split has occurred in their con
trolling organization. Their own leaders are
beginning to perceive that nothing of any
great importance can be brought about in
Russia by mere brute force, and that Nihilism
is practically a lost cause. Even before
Solovieff attempted the Czar's life disputes
had broken out between the leading social
revolutionists, some of whom were resolved
to put the Emperor out of the way, while oth
ers wished his life to be spared. The former
faotion acted on its own responsibility when
it commissioned Solovieff to carry out its pro
gramme ; for the Semlja i Wolja, the organ
of the Moderate party, repudiated any con
nection with the men of April 14."
The atrocities of Russian despotism are not
palliated or excused by the fierce and bloody
deeds of the Nihilists. But those deeds and
the reign of terror whioh accompanies them
are calculated to defeat their own object.
They have done it in Fianoe, in Spain and in
other countries, and they seem likely to do it
in Russia. Nihilism, as at present practiced
there, can never conquer, and is in reality the
enemy ofthe people, whatever it may promise
them. Some, indeed, think the Nihilists are
but the tools of reactionary absolutists. How
ever this may be, they are evidently power
ful hindrance to progress.
General Grant's withdrawal or failure
nqminated on the first ballot.
If soma painters who painted the Tay
bridge last summer tell the truth, the Scotch
ministers who declared that the fall of the
bridge was a judgment will have something
to explain. These painters have testified that
when at work on the bridge they saw numer
ous bolt holes empty ; that they found bolts
in holes where there should have been rivets,
and found rivets without heads and bars
loosened and nuts unscrewed ; that one of the
supporting columns of the high girders which,
was oraoked from top to bottom was held to
gather with four hoop bands ; that sometimes
the oscillation of the bridge was so great they
feared it would fall. The evidence has natu
rally created considerable sensation, but its
value oannot be estimated until the railway
inspectors are heard on the subjeot.
We are sorry to learn, as we do from the
Christian Union of London, that Mrs. Victoria
" Woodhall" is ooming back to this country
after she has published her views on marriage
for the instruetfou Of the English people.
This is the way the Christian Union talks
about her : "That a woman who has devoted
her whole life to doing angel's work should
have been so maligned and persecuted, even
up to the gates of justice, where alone she re
ceived a verdict of blameless, is one of those
marvels whioh the pages of history only can
explain, and which show that all those who
have fought for a good oause, from saints and
martyrs downwards, have had to pass through
their Gethsemane of mental suffering too ex
quisite for human utterance. She has passed
through her Gethsemane, and when she re
turns to her native land her people will vie
with each other to make reparation for the
cruel injuries they have done to the noblest
minded and most self-saorificing of women
whose only fault was that she loved them too
well." The Christian Union had better send
a reporter over the water with Mrs. "Wood
hall" so that it can have full and authentic
accounts of the "vieing."
Many who broke the Sabbath Day by try

General Joe Shelby, of Missouri, says, In a
recant letter : "No man is at more ease than
I to say I am a follower of Jeff Davis. While
secession may have been wrong, we don't ad
mit it. It proved an error by force of arms."

John Brown Smith, the Belchertown
(Mass.) "martyr," who refused to pay his poll
tax on the ground that he is an "independent
sovereignty," and has been in jail for a num
ber of months, is now at liberty his friends
having paid his tax with the un ierstandicg
that the town will npt sue him for his board
while in jail. Aooording to his principles
Smith should not have accepted any such de
grading compromise, but it is diffionlt to see
how be could have avoided it.
If there is any meeting in this world of sin
and lost umbrellas and canes to whioh a man
can safely carry an umbrella or a cane,

advocates of the "higher life" doctrine at a

In reference to Mr. Blaine's chances for the

in 1876 he reeeived the support of many dele
gates from the Southern States. In 1880 he is
not likely to receive muoh support from that

The bill to be prepared by the Senate Com
mittee on Indian Affairs will mark a long step
forward in the treatment of the Indians by
the Government. The plan outlined by the
oommittee inolndes the permanent localization
of the Indians by allotting homesteads to
them, with the provision that the lands so al
lotted shall be absolutely inalienable during a
period of twenty-five years; the extension over
the Indians of the general civil and criminal
laws of the United States, or of the respective
States and Territories within whose borders
they are located, and the continuation of a cer
tain degree of assistance to them by the Gov
ernment in the line of progress until they be
come self-sustaining by means of agricultural
and pastoral oooupations. It is not proposed
by the oommittee to transfer the control of
the Indians to the War department, but the
bill will largely divest the Interior department
of discretionary powtr in regard to the Indians
by plaoing them individually under the con
trol of the country's general laws. The pro
visions of the bill are not to apply to the
five civilized tribes of the Indian Territory.
This plan meets the approval of most of those
who have interested themselves in the Indians'
The debate upon the bill for the relief cf
General Fitz John Porter is expected to begin
in the Senate to-day. Senator Randolph, who
has charge of the bill, intends to press it to a
vote without unnecessary delay. General
Porter has been in Washington much of the
time this winter, and his health is extremely
poor. Senator Randolph was asked if he had
heard the story reoently published that was
told by Rev. G. D. Ayers, of Bridgeport, in
this State, to the effect that one night he saw
General Porter in conversation with thrre
rebel generals, one of whom was Robert E.
Lee. "Yes, I have read it," replied Governor
Randolph. "Nothing could be more ridicu
lous ; it is sheer fiction. I wish somebody
would allude to it during the approaching de
bate; I would not be long in disposing of it."
Referring to General Getty, one of the officers
who sat upon the recent oourt, Governor Ran
dolph said that he had a short time since re
ceived from him what in his opinion was the
most manly letter he had ever read. It was
written in acknowledgment of a note from the
Senator accompanying four bound volumes
containing the evidence and arguments heard
by the court in the case. In that letter Gen
eral Getty said that he felt as one who
ought to ask pardon for having done General
Porter the cruel wrong of having for seven
teen years believed him a traitor to his couc-try.
Among the other evidenoes of progress in
Japan is a completely organized geological
sarvey, with a full staff of native surveyors,
under an Amerioan chief, Mr. B. S. Lyman.
The first Report of Progress ot this survey,
for 1878 and 1879, has just been published,
and contains some aoourate and valuable in
formation on the mineral wealth of the coun
try. Mr. Lyman reckons that the coal fields of
Western Japan oontain about six hundred and
twenty million tons, and if one-third be de
ducted for the working, there will remain
four hundred million tons, representing a val
ue at the coast of one thousand million dol
lars. Iooonsiderable as this is in comparison
with the large and rich coal fields of other
lands, it is quite equal in value to all the metal
produots together, exoept iron. The oopper
Of the workable mines scarcely reaches the
value of seven hundred and fifty million dol
lars ; the eight or ten gold and silver mines,
whioh were formerly worked and may be so
again, may, including the lead, antimony, and
tin mines, the workability of whioh is doubt
ful, be valued at more than two hundred and
fifty million dollars. On the other hand, the
value of the iron amounts to at least two hun
dred and fifty thousand million dollars. The
relative importance of the mineral products
may be represented by the following num
bers : Iron, 1,000 ; coal, 4 ; copper, 3 ; all
other metals (chiefly gold and silver), 1.
The action of the Postoffice department in
suspending the operations of the lottery order,
o far as it relates to M. A. Dauphin ot the
Louisiana lottery, until after the case shall
have been decided by the Supreme Court of
the United States, unless it is satisfactorily ex
plained, will not strengthen publio confidence
in the department. In this order the depart
ment makes an admission of weakness not al
together consistent with the vigor and per
sistency whioh has characterized the prosecu
tion of the lotteries. The admission is that
the department is not satisfied from the evi
dence before it that Dauphin is engaged in a
soheme or devioe for obtaining money through
the mail by means of false and fraudulent
pretenses, representations and promises.
Sinos proceedings against the lottery compa
nies were begun the Louisiana Lottery Com -pany,
whioh is the wealthiest conoera of the
kind in the country, has had a powerful lobby
in Washington, and the Louisiana delegation
in Congress has shown an unwonted interest
in the proceedings. Prominent members of
Congress were engaged to defend the inter
ests of the company in oourt. But notwith
standing all this the department gained a
substantial victory in the (Supreme Court of
the distriot, whioh tribunal approved the ac
tion of the department against the lotteries.
It would be interesting to know why, after be
ing strengthened in its position by the decis
ion of the oourt, the Postoffioe department
has suspended its order so far as it relates to
M. A."Dauphin. . Can the lottery agents haYe
had any influence in the department ?

If you will pardon the versatility of your
correspondent I will write you a letter to-day
altogether different from anything sent you
before. It is particularly about the Rev. Dr.
John E. Todd and his immediate work in the
Church of the Redeemer. As I have time at
this writing to give you but a small idea of
the many things he is doing, I will confine
myself principally to one only. For the past
few months he has been devotiDg his Sunday
afternoon discourses to a series of lectures up
on the life, travels and labors of St. Paul, and
to more minutely describe them, and at the
same time more fully instruct his hearers,

rather rouebly, but correctly, a large

talking about in such a way as could only be
done by the means be has adopted.

courses there has been but one expression of

A Peculiar Profession How Injured
Optics are Fixed up "as Good as New."
From the San Francisco Chronicle.
It is not an extraordinary event in the life
of the average man to beoome, by some of
the numerous accidents whioh are constantly
occurring, the un envied possessor of a diecol -ored
optic. It ofttimes happens that the un
desired acquisition of this chameleon like
characteristic of one's eyes is superinduced
by a misapprehension of one s strength or bis
knowledge of the manly art of self-defense.
The perversity with which door hinges swing
their incumbrance ajar, after the sun's rays
and the lights of night have disappeared, and
the total absence of any regular system as to
the velocity and direction assumed by flying
chips, have no doubt caused many "an unfor
giving eye and a disinheriting countenance."
To remove this stain of battle, or to whatever
exterior causes the "dark and revengeful eye"
may owe its origin, has for a long number of
years oooupied the attention and scienoe of
the medical profession. Nature has often de
luded suffering and disfigured man with what
the uninitiated have fondly believed to be
The molluscous bivalve has often strained
its elastic ligaments and destroyed its palata
ble qualities in vain endeavors to remove the
rapidly congealing blood under many a swel
ling eye. The ootylaid worm has oft, with
its triangular mouth, made a stillate incision
on a bruised and rapidly darkening organ, and
there remained until its symmetry of form
vanished with the usefulness of its mission.
But it has remained for the deft fingers of
man to do all that the medical profession and
animal king 10m have failed to achieve, for
now, so remunerating has the science of eye
painting beoome, that some half a dozen art
ists located in this oity are slowly but surely
treading the path to wealth and winning the
laurel of the philanthropist. It was the for
tune of a member of the Chronicle staff to
call not to solicit professional service upon
one of these useful members of society,
from whom he gleaned the following infor
Artist Ob, yes, I paint a great many black

see whether it's black or not. '
Rep. Will the paint withstand the effect
of water ?
Artist After it gets well hardened, one
may wipe his face with a damp towel, but it
won't do to use warm water ; or, if a fellow
has lots of crow feet in the corners of his
eyes, it will cause the paint to craok. I had
an Englishman come here one day, just after
his arrival from Australia. - He was mistaken
on the wharf for "the man that looked like
him," and was struck in the eye. Of course
it was a mistake; but he got a black eye all
the same, and, after I had finished the job, he '
went over to a bathing establishment and took
a hot bath, and that washed all my coloring
off and left the other fellow's there, so I had
to paint his eye again. He said to me : "This
ia a of a country ; a man gets 'it in ths
heye as soon as 'e puts 'is foot on the blawsted
wharf." I don't think ha liked Amerioan
ways. Excuses, did you say ? Well, I should
speak of it. One man will say he ran against
the door ; another had a chip fly up and strike
him in the eye ; another falls down, and oc
casionally one tells you he had a fight, but
generally it was "only skylarking with a fellow."
