Benedict Building, 84 Church Street, Box Q3. Sew Haven, Conn. apStf 5 Dr. E. B. Iighthill, from New Tork city, begs leave to give notice that yielding to the pressure of many earnest and repeated solici tations to extend to the afflicted in this vicin ity the benefit of his extensive experience and skill, has taken rooms at " - No. 35 College Street, Where on and after Monday, 17thr he can be consulted on Monday, Tuesday, Wednes day and Thursday of each week, as follows ; On Monday from 10 a. m. to 8 p. m. On Tuesday from 8 to 10 a. m. On Wednesday from 3:30 to 8 p. m. On Thursday from 8 a. m. to 3 p. m. Prepared to give his personal attention to the treatment and cure of Deafness, Catarrh, and Diseases of the Throat, Lungs and Ner vous System. For upward of twenty-five years Dr. light- hill has been at the head of an extensive met ropolitan practice, devoted exclusively to the relief and cure of those important ailments, and it is with pardonable pride that he refers to the extraordinary success which attended his efforts. Bis recent discoveries are of the highest practical importance, rendering treat ment so effectual that relief is experienced at once, and permanent cures are often effected in the most stubborn and aggravated cases ; and it is one of the happy features of his practice that 'the applications cause neither pain nor die tress, and can be readily admin istered to the most timid or nervous person. A candid opinion will invariably be given as to the possibilities of a cure, and no case will be accepted for treatment which does not pre sent a reasonable chance for success. In evidence of the success of his practice, Dr. Lighthill takes pleasure in submitting the following testimonials. A mass of similar credentials may be seen at his office. From tlie Rev. D. J. Clark. Pastor Congregational Church, Kast Ha ven, Conn. It affords me great pleasure to add my tes timony to that of others in favor of Dr. Lighthill's success in the cure of catarrh. Bis treatment of my wife has proved so ben eficial that I cheerfully recommend him to the confidence of the afflicted. The catarrh in the case of my wife was of long standing and in its worst form, against which many remedies had been tried in vain. The very first treatment applied by Dr. Iighthill per manently removed some of the most trouble some features and the results ever since have been of the most gratifying character. Our people may congratulate themselves on hav ing at their command the services of a physi cian so skillful as Dr. Iighthill in the treat- ment of that troublesome disease, catarrh. D. 3. CLARK. B rom Col. D. A. Rood, Proprietor of the United States Hotel, Hartford, Conn. Hartford, Feb. 11, 1880. Dr. E. B. Iighthill: Dear Sir Prompted by a feeling of justice to you and a sense of duty to the public, I take this method of expressing my grateful appreciation of the able and skillful manner in which you treated my wife for Catarrh. When I placed her under your professional care she suffered so severely that she could scarcely obtain any rest at night, but your first application afforded decided relief and your subsequent treatment has proved a per fect success. In the course of my experience I have seen a good deal of physicians and medical practice, but I must confess that your method of treatment for Catarrh is superior to anything that has yet come under my ob servation, and in fact is so rational and. effec tive that it must commend itself at once to every unprejudiced mind. - Yours truly, D. A. ROOD. From Mr. Richard Case, of Canton, Conu. For the past twenty years I was afflicted with Catarrh, which affected my throat to such an extent as to make my life a misery. I would wake up at night with a sense of suf focation, as though some one was strangling me, expecting every moment to be my last. My suffering was so severe that I was afraid to go to bed, and often did not dare to. Ten years ago my hearing became also impaired from the effects of catarrh and gradually grew so bad that of late it was quite difficult for me to hear. Two months ago I placed myself under Dr. lighthill's care, and there suit of his treatment has been truly wonder ful. The trouble in my throat is completely removed, I sleep and breathe as comfortably as a baby, my hearing is restored, and my health has so much im proved that I feel like a new man. In fact such a change for the better has been wrought in my case that I thank God daily from the bottom of my heart for bringing Dr. Iighthill to Hartford and for directing me to him. I am 64 years of age and have lived in Hartford county nearly all my life, and if the blessings and prayers of an old man are of any avail, the happiness and pros perity of Dr. Iighthill is assured. , EICHAED CASE.

Six years ago I became hard of "hearing, and ever since then the difficulty increased so that it annoyed me very much, and obliged me to listen closely in order to get along. In this condition I placed myself under the treatment and care of Dr. Iighthill, who suc ceeded in restoring me to perfect hearing, and thereby earned my lifelong gratitude. W. J, COWtES.

Monday Morning, May 17, 1880. TN A TIGHT PIiACE. The Whittaker case at West Point has reached a most interesting stage, five experts in handwriting having decided that Whitta ker himself wrote . the famous, "note of warning," he being the cadet whose writing, differently numbered f cr each examination, was in every case picked out as identical with the writing of that note. There is a feeling against expert testimony as to handwriting, just as there is against expert . testimony as to arsenic and other things. Notwithstanding this fact, such tes timony u often very valuable, as in this case it seems to be. . The tests were fairly made, the reports of the experts show that they worked carefully and - conscientiously, and the reasons they give for the conclusion they reached are understandable. Moreover, the fact of their agreement concerning the writer of the note is, considering their manner of working, good evidence that they arrived at the truth. A part of the testimony of Mr. Joseph G. Paine, the last of the experts to testify, is interesting in this connection. He declared that he was never better able to ar rive at definite conclusions from having dif ferent and more definite material to work with ; that in all the papers in set No. 1 the similarity of handwriting to the note of warning was equally striking ; that he was engaged on no side in the case, but acted freely and independently, and that he had had no conference with other experts in re gard to the matter. In reply to the court he said that this was the most difficult problem he had ever encountered as a handwriting expert. He received no instructions to see if the handwriting of Cadet Whittaker had not -been imitated, could not tell whether specimens of the handwriting of each cadet had been given to him, and as to the matter of the handwriting being forged or disguised he let the papers determine for themselves. That, under such conditions, the five experts should have agreed is extraordinary. But whatever is thought by the general public concerning the force of the concurrent testimony of the experts in chirography, the testimony of one of them Mr. Southworth concerning the paper on which the note of warning was written will have great weight. The note was written on a half sheet of note paper, and Mr. Southworth does not hesitate to assert that this half sheet was torn from a sheet the other half of which was found in Whittaker's room by the authorities. He says : "The fact is easily discernible to or dinary vision with the naked eye. This paper out of set 1, marked by me"'A' twice with a blue pencil, has subject matter connected with a nother sheet, which I have marked 'B' twice in blue. The sheet 'B' is torn from another sheet, which I have marked 'C twice. Thus, by a fact mathematically de monstrable, the anonymous note is one of four jinks, three of which are papers of set 1. I have great satisfaction in discovering this point, which discovery will do much toward settling this whole affair as far as the author ship of the anonymous note is concerned . . The truth stands forth to all interest ed, friends and foes if there be any, beyond doubt or cavil, that this most perplexing and annoying question has been solved. . . . I have to the best of my ability arranged two frames of glass so as to exhibit my discovery to any who may wish to examine it. No. 1 is the questioned note placed in juxtaposition with the part of the sheet from set 1 marked "A" in two places. We further notice the cut of the papers on the top as arranged cut at the paper mill ; next the rulings and then the ragged edges in juxtaposition where it was separated, perhaps with a paper cutter no matter in what way so long as an in dented spot upon one has its corresponding tooth opposite. So of No. 2, which is out of set 1 and marked as above described, and placed as I have described heretofore in No. 1." Although Mr. Southworth in this exam ination went outside his usual work as an ex pert in writing, the importance of his discov ery is not decreased by that. Whittaker's manner, which has throughout the examination been dignified and otherwise commendable, did not change on Saturday when the climax of the case seems to have been reached. Professor Oreener is report ed as still believing in his innocence and ex pecting his vindication, but it is hard to see how the damaging array of testimony against him is to be overcome. interest by a great many gas users. Mr. Coo- gan wants the company to show cause why it should not be compelled to furnish him gas at the rate of seventy-five cents per thousand, as per contract. Since the Municipal Com pany transferred its interests to the New York Gaslight Company the latter has i fused to furnish gas at less than two dollars and twenty-five cents per thousand. The question which will arise is whether the Mu nicipal Company has the legal right to trans fer its interests without regard to existing contracts, and whether it has not forfeited its charter. When the Municipal Company com menced operations it was predicted that it would not carry out its promises to the public. EDITORIAL NOTES. The prospect is now good that Congress will adjourn on the 31st inst., the House hav ing decided to get through then. Represen tative Garfield told the truth when he said this Congress was outstaying the weloome of the American people. It has been claimed that the resolutions passed at Utica do not instruct the delegates to Chicago from New York to vote for Grant, but they do. The report that they did not arose from an error in their transmission to the press of the country. The London Echo is informed that it is not George Eliot, but Mrs. G. H. Lewes, the legal widow of the deceased philosopher, who was recently married to a Mr. Cross, If this is so, the mistake in identity was an unfortu nate one, for it has given rise to many news paper paragraphs which cannot be pleasant reading to the great novelist and her friends. Ritualism is not only a standing menace to the safety of the Church of England, but it is likewise an expensive luxury. The Church Association has within a few years spent two hundred and seventeen thousand three hundred and sixty-five dollars in trying to put it down, sixty thousand dollars of which has been swallowed up by prosecuting Mr. Mackonochie, and they have not done with him yet. .. The death of Chief Justice Church, of the New York Court of Appeals, may have an important bearing upon New York politics this year. An appointment by theuGovernor to fill the vacancy will hold good only until the end of the year. Under the constitution a chief justice must be elected next Novem ber, and it will therefore be necessary for both parties to hold conventions in the fall and nominate candidates. Both parties have already nominated their electoral tickets, in order to avoid the necessity of a fall conven tion. But conventions must now be held, and their action is likely to affect quite seriously, one way or another, the Presidential canvass. The National Republican is mistaken in saying that the Republican State conventions of Massachusetts and Connecticut instructed their delegates to vote for Edmunds. A res olution of the Massachusetts convention de clared : "While we do not instruct our del egates, we recommend to their consideration as a Republican statesman who . possesses in an eminent degree such qualities and requi sites for the nomination, the Hon. George F. Edmunds of Vermont." The Connecticut convention simply pledged itself and the con stituency which it represented to "hearty, vigorous and loyal support of. the nominee of the Republican National convention at Chicago." Mr. Marzetti, one of the directors of the Railway and General light Improvement Company, has received a lesson from the English court of Appeal which he will ,be likely to remember, and which other directors may find profit in. ' The board of directors of which Marzetti was a member passed a res olution appropriating $3,250 for "prelimina ry expenses. Marzetti was present at the meeting, and voted for the resolution without making any inquiry as to what the "preliminary expenses" were. As a mat ter of fact, the purpose for which the money was voted and used was fraudulently raising the price of the company's shares in the market, or, as the Master of the Rolls ex pressed it, "rigging the market." It was not claimed that Marzetti was a knowing party to this fraud, or that he knew or sus pected its existence. So far as criminal in tent or guilty knowledge was concerned, he was innocent. He was held liable solely on the ground of negligence in voting away the company s money without knowing or in quiring for what it was to be spent. The court intimated that Mr. Marzetti might have escaped legal liability if the finance commit tee of the company had reported that the payment was a proper one, or he might have acted with sufficient core and diligence had he moved that the subject be referred to this committee, instead of blindly voting for the resolution authorizing the payment. The last number of the American Architect has an interesting note on the Madison Square Garden calamity. The wall which gave way was thirty-four feet high, about two hundred feet long, twelve inches thick, feebly tied, poorly anchored, and unsupported in its up per story. On the supposition that if was held firm at the second floor, and calculating only for the portion above, the "Architect" concludes that according to the French rule it should have had a thickness of not less than nineteen and a half inches, while the Boston rule required three feet four inches, and the New York law six feet ten inches. "Three-fifths of the smallest standard which is explained in detail was the actual thick- is." The Architect ascribes the calam ity simply to the false construction of the wall, while admitting that the roof was done badly, and remarks : If it were not for the complete lack of un derstanding of the principles involved which was shown by the builders summoned as ex perts in the inquest, we should hardly think of calling attention to the fact that in so long a wall there is no question of resistance to vertical pressure ; that it is nonsense to talk about the weight of a score of pictures, or the vibration caused by the light feet of a few young dancers, being more than a twelve-inch wall of that height could support ; the main element to be considered under such circumstances is the stability of the mass of masonry itself. It is plain that for a few feet from the return walls the brickwork would stand erect forever, held in place by them, under any pressure short of actual crushing strain ; and it is no less' evident that, as the distance from the angles in creased, their influence in retaining the wall would diminish until, at a great distance, it became inappreciable, and the masonry could depend only on its own steadiness, that is, on the width of its base in proportion to its height, just as if it stood alone, and the rules for determining its thickness become those for independent walls, or columns standing alone.

To the Editor of the Journal and Coubieb : Perhaps the best method for reducing; obesity is an intelligent selection for the table of such foods as contain the smallest propor tion of fat-producing material. The fat of our bodies is derived from three kinds of food. First, the fats, either animal or vegetable, which we eat pass essentially unchanged through the digestive process,' and are deposited as such in the living tis sues. Sugar also is to some extent convert ed by the wonderful laboratory within ns ' into fat identical with that which it goes to augment ; and, lastly, all the starchy part of our food is changed during the process of digestion into sugar, which mixes with and reaches the same destination athat which is sugar from the beginning. Thus it becomes evident how few foods there are which lack these fattening elements entirely, rracticauy, however, a table can be arranged including foods which contain the smallest ' proportion of starch, fat or sugar, which would serve as a valuable guide to such as desire to reduce their weight. Reg ulating the amount of food ingested is ob viously of much importance also : for some people are so organized that they seem to ap propriate ana aeposit every atom that can be converted into fat, so that a spare diet is de sirable, as little being eaten as will maintain the health and strength unimpaired. Those who find difficulty in controlling the appetite might practice a little deception on their stomachs by selecting those foods that are bulky and at the same time but slightly nu tritious on a similar principle to that of the boarding house, where soup is offered you first, that, being so far filled up, less room may be left for the more costly viands. strict attention to the following rules, then for a month or two would, I think, cause the scales to give very satisfactory evidence for this treatment, without expense and the more or less deleterious results of medication : ANTI-PAT DIET. Avoid foods largely composed of fat Fat meats, butter, oils, etc. Foods largely saccha rine Bugar, pastry, etc Foods largely composed of Btarch cornstarch and meal, tapioca and sago, rice and nne flour, pota toes, etc. Alcoholic drinks. Eating more than is necessary. Prefer white of eggB and tripe, lean meats and Ash, oys ters, eto. Sub-acid and succulent fruits melons and or anges, currants and ber ries, pears, peaches, eto. xne lesssta archy and more watery vegetables peas and beans, gluten and whole wheat flour, toma toes, squash, etc. Soups for first course. Drink water. Abundant exercise. It is a great shame that the converse of these rules will not apply with equally good results, to that still larger number of men and women who bewail their leanness ; for these people are usually so constituted natu rally, or their digestion so impaired by un healthf ul habits of life, that although they are furnished with abundant material they fail to assimilate fat and acquire the much-desired contour. So far as it goes, however, and in connection with invigorating measures and mental and physical hygiene, the selection of fat-producing and otherwise nutritious foods is indicated. Young Phtsician. A Curious Beast. From the London Telegraph. Among the most recent additions to the Zoological Society's collections in Regent's Park is a Cape hunting dog. It is a queer beast, with shifty ways that give it an appear ance of irresolution and occasionally of crazy bewilderment, induced, no doubt, by the con sciousness that its features justify its being looked upon as neither dog nor anything else, but something half-way toward the first hyena and about as far from the last wolf. In a wild state it is a creature of intense feroci ty, and as active as it is fierce, sweeping in packs from province to province, ravaging the colonist's flocks and hunting down the wild herds of the plains. Nothing is safe from it when at liberty, and in captivity it is said to be untamable. Probably, therefore, no other occupant of the society's gardens will find its new life so miserably circum scribed, so flat and dull, as will this wild hyena-hound of Africa. A Sapphire that Weighs a Pound. The London Telegraph says thatTBerlin has just learned to its astonishment and gratifica tion, from a report of the Polytechnio Socie ty's latest meeting, that within its walls re poses a treasure of almost fabulous value, the. very existence of which had been hither to unsuspected. A member of the above named society is the enviable owner of the largest sapphire in the world a stone weigh ing nearly 15 ounces. Pure sapphires of good color hold so high a rank in the gem market that, were this gigantic jewel of the first water, it would be worth no less a sum than $3,200,000. It is, however, not abso lutely free from impurities, a fact which ma terially diminishes its practical value, but enormous bids for it, made at different times by German Princes and wealthy mineralo gists, have been invariably rejected by its proprietor, who has constituted it an heir loom, and confided it, in deposit, to the cus tody of the State judicial authorities. A sap phire weighing nearly a pound may fairly claim to rank as among the wonders of the world. It would be interesting to learn how so extraordinary a gem came into the posses sion of the Prussian savant who exhibited it to the wonder-stricken gaze of his fellow Polytechnicians the other evening. Bnow a Hundred Feet Deep. From the Virginia (Nev.) Enterprise, May 14.) A gentleman recently arrived from Califor nia, where he has been looking about "among the mining towns, speaks of several places where the snow now lies to a depth of over 100 feet. These places are generally at the heads of large canons. At the head of Fall Creek, Nevada county, pines and firs over 100 feet in height are so buried in snow that only a few feet of their tops are to be seen. Where a dark forest lies in summer there is now only, to be seen a white expanse of snow, with here and there what appear to be clumps of bushes, but which are really Jthe tops of the tallest pines. . . Obstreperous Zulus. From the London News. The noble savage running wild in his woods, free as Nature first formed man. is no doubt a very interesting object, especially to an oDserver wno is not uncomfortably nearT" But the noble savage obstructing the streets of Westminster, brandishingja knife there, getting into a public house and refusing to get out of it, is as unpicturesque as he is out of place. Five noble savages, who are de scribed as Zulus, and who do apparently come from some part of South Africa, have been thus disturbing quiet people in West minster. They were brought over, it is stat ed, for the purpose of public exhibition here, but the story goes that they declined to per form. What made it worse was that they ap pear to have taken their money in advance, and then objected to fulfilling their part of the contract. There seems more of the civ ilized man, it must be owned, than of the savage in this unrighteous proceeding. Draw ing one's pay and then drawing out of the business for which the pay was to be given does not appear an act worthy of an Oronoo ko or even of a Zangs. One of these eminent Africans was a good deal too sentimental, and the other was inexcusably vindictive ; but the worst enemy of either would not have sus pected him of pocketing a fair day's wages without doing a fair day's work. One of the troublesome Zulus complained that he had too much dancing to do, and that it injured his health. Civilization, even a short expe rience of it, would seem to have exercised a baleful influence on the bodily vigor as well as the moral principles of these poor Zulus. Can they really be of the chivalrous race of stout Cetewayo? On Vesuvius. Correspondence Boston Advertiser. An hour and a half of this interesting walking brings us to the top, where we halt a moment to look into the crater, thinking that this is the end of our journey, but the guide beckons us over, and, following him down the side of the crater, we soon find ourselves on a level with the crusted lava, which covers nearly the whole surface of the crater, about 150 or 200 feet below the top of the cone, and at the point where it broke down the wall of the latter in the eruption of 1872. This crusted lava of the crater 18 black, and looks much like slag from a fur nace, but in this cose it is extremely hot and smoking, and it requires great care in the cra ter not to have the boots burnt off or the clothes set on fire, both of which accidents often happen. I walked out a considerable distance on the crust, which gave forth omi nous, hollow sounds in response to my foot steps and strokes from my stick. Here and there sudden puffs of steam would throw up sprays of molten lava and sprinkle people who happened to be near. One lady of my acquaintance thus had her umbrella bura up, while a gentleman had his clothing set ' on fire, another lost the soles of his boots by walking on the hot crust, and a lady saw the crust slowly rise up just at her feet and the molten mass flow slowly over. Of course a hasty retreat is the thing in such cases. The molten mass flows to the surface at various points, and, dipping it up on my stick, I emZ bedded a number of copper coin in little masses of it. As I walked about in this hot atmosphere the conviction gradually dawned upon me that the crater of Vesuvius was a hollow and deceptive mockery, and an excel lent place to get away from. It seems as if I were literally standing over the jaws of per dition and within a single step of entering the seething realms of infernal spirits, and as this conviction gained strength I -turned to retrace my steps, and as 1 did so I found an " open seam about a foot wide in the crust be hind me, and as I was about to step over this, on looking downward, I saw the white hot mass, within about three feet of the sur face and directly beneath my feet. I quickly regained the smoking ashes of the cone at the side of the lava and immediately felt safer, and here I Bat down to make'further,observer t'i?B.ffi . . " .. '
