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. lighthill 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 cion so skillful as Dr. Lighthill in the treat ment of that troublesome disease, eatarrh. D. J. CLARK. B rom Col. I). A. liood, Proprietor at the United States Hotel, Hartford, Conn. Hartford, Feb. 11, 1880. . Dr. E. B. Lighthill: 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. Tours truly, D. A. ROOD. From Mr. Richard Case, of Canton; Conn. For the past twenty years I was afflicted with Catarrh, which affected my . throat to such an extent as to make my Dfe 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 Buffering 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 ttat I thank God daily from the bottom of my heart for bringing Dr. Lighthill 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 mam are of any avail, the happiness and pros perity of Dr. Lighthill is assured. BICBAKP CASE. Canton, Conn., Feb. 25, 1880. CURE OF DEAFNE S. Of Mr. W. J. Cowlee, of Norfolk, Conn. . .. ' 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. Lighthill, who suc ceeded in restoring me to! perfect hearing, and thereby earned my lifelong gratitude. : W. 3. COWLES. Norfolk, Conn., Feb. 18, 188a TUB EDUCATION OF INDIANS. The anniversary exercises of the Hampton (Va.) Normal School again call attention to the very interesting experiment in the educa tion of Indians now in progress there. The work originated in the appeal on behalf of seventeen young Indian prisoners of war at St. Augustine, Florida, for an education. Thus far ninety-six Indians in all have been at the school. There are now sixty-eight there forty-seven boys and twenty-one girls. Of these sixty-two are aided by the govern. ment and six supported by charity. The results of the experiment thus far are very gratifying. It might be expected that the negroes under, instruction at the school would make things unpleasant for the little Indians, just aswferts scholars do for nagton, but snch is not the case. The representa tives of the two races live and study together in commendable peace. "The difficulty with them," Bays General Armstrong, "is not so much ignorance as weakness or deficiency of character ; not lack of brains but of moral stamina. Both need drill throughout the range of living." Many of the common no tions of Indian characteristics seem to be overturned by the experience at Hampton. It has been the common belief that they are lazy, unfeeling and treacherous. The Indians at Hampton, it is declared, show none of these characteristics. In work they are slow, but willing. In the school room, it is the tes timony of a teacher at the head of the Indian department, himself a graduate of Hampton, skillful in managing Indian boys, that their aptness will compare favorably with the chil dren in any public school of the same grade. In their training, one-half of each day has been given . to class . recitations, and the other half to farm work and mechanics. In the shops are many interesting speci mens of their work. There is a one-horse cart complete, of their make ; a variety of small and useful articles of blacksmith work; all the wooden tables used in the school are their work; they mate all the tin ware needed by the school, do most of the shoe mending and many small jobs in painting, and other mechanical work. Under the direction of carpenter, they have built a carriage house, weather-boarded and shingled. The farm squad has worked successfully at the cultiva tion of various crops. The Indian girls have had instruction in household industries, and are now learning to make and mend their own clothes. In view of the promising character of the work it is pleasant to learn that benevolent persons have planned to benefit Indian girls by erecting a building for their benefit at a cost of $15,000. A beautiful site adjoining the school premises has been given, and it is expected that the necessary funds for the building will be procured the coming fall and winter. When this building is completed at least fifty more girls can be accommodated. It is also encouraging that there is no scarcity of Indian pupils. Those at the school now came voluntarily and with the consent of their pa rents, and hundreds of both sexes are said to be eager for an education. General Arm strong is now of opinion that three years at Hampton will fit Indians for a sjmple life of labor in their own homes. Whether the educated Indians will relapse into barbarism on their return to their people from the school is much discussed. It is believed that they will, as a whole, stand the test of hoine, if the methods of teaching now adopted are followed and care taken that, when they go back, favorable arrangements be made for a start in life. Of the Florida boys, all but one of whom have returned to their homes, but one has relapsed into barbarism ; all the others are dfing welL Of course the more there are educated, the more they will strengthen each other, and every friend of the Indian will be 'glad to see such work as is done at Hampton prosper, for in it isthe uplifting of the Indian race, if it is to be uplifted. EDITORIAL K0TE9. The New York Times makes a careful esti mate of the strength of the various candi dates, and comes to the conclusion that Gen eral Grant will receive 387 votes on the first ballot, or 8 more votes than are necessary to secure his nomination. In a week from to morrow the accuracy of the Times' count will be tested. The editor of the Galena Gazette, who is a personal friend of General Grant, says: "A very large class of the American people have chosen to make him (Grant) their candidate, and if the Republican national convention at Chicago sees fit to tender him the nomina tion he will not decline it. . This we know to be a fact, and we publish it because it is well that the Republicans of the country should cease to hold the matter In doubt." It does seem to be about time that there should cease to be any doubt about this matter. A bill is now before Congress to define the word orphan. Most people would think such a bill unnecessary, but it seems that it is not. Usually the term orphan is applied to one who has lost both parents, but it is also ap plied where only one parent is dead. In Pennsylvania it has been decided to mean, where it occurs in Girard's will, one whose father is dead, though it is doubtful if that was really Girard's understanding of the word. In Ireland it is frequently applied to a person who has lost all his children. An old childless man is there called a "poor old orphan." Memphis is perhaps cleaner to-day than she has ever been and hopes to escape the yellow fever this summer. Twenty miles of sewer pipes have been laid already, and over 700 men are now at work for the district, govern ment. Thirty miles of sewers will be fin ished by June 1. This will nearly complete the sewer system. In addition, an equal number of miles of drain tile have been laid. Aside from the sewerage and drainage, men tion must be made of the cleaning and filling of vaults, the demolition of hundreds of old buildings, the tearing up of the Nicholson pavement, the cleaning up of cellars, and the general renovation of stores and dwellings. - A famous iron ore case, which has been in the courts of Pennsylvania for twenty-seven years, has at last been decided by the Su preme Court. The case was one in which a certain furnace company claimed enough iron ore from the iron ore banks of Lebanon county for the supply of one furnace, by virtue of a reservation in a deed given by one Peter Grubb more than one hundred years ago. In the early days a sufficient quantity of ore for the supply of one furnace was com paratively small,' but, with the march of mod ern improvements and inventions, the quan tity increased to such an extent that the owners felt called upon to resist. The suit has finally terminated, though not without great expense to both contestants. - Several of the lawyers who were engaged upon the ease when it was carried into court have long since been in their graves. the second period is supposed to have been one of agitation among the masses in prep aration of the revolt, while the first period consisted simply in the organization Of the Nihilistic committees and conspirators. The confusion wrought by Melikoff among the criminals has thrown the lattef into quarrels among themselves. Thus the "Nabat" is on bad terms with the Dragama nbw, and experience teaches that agitators and central committees usually fall a prey to the police. The Nihilists had expected, when they began their recent, career - of general crimes, that all Russia would rise to destroy the Government, the church, so ciety and property. That expectation was not realized, and the "Nabat" for one makes the zeal of General Melikoff and the apathy of the people responsible for the Nihilistio collapse. It is thought that Nihilism has done its worst, and that Russia will now see hap pier days. The final report of the Imperial Chancery of Germany upon the manner in which the French war indemnity has been disposed of is Intfrrfisting-. The total .sum exacted, from r France by her conquerors as the price of peace amounted, as will be remembered, to considerably more than two hundred mil lion pounds, every penny of which had been expended, distributed to the several German States or invested in newly-created imperial institutions by its official administrators be fore the conclusion of the financial year 1877-8. The imperial share of the indemnity is set down at about fifty-one million five hun dred thousand pounds, six million pounds of which, in coined gold, lie deposited in the Julius tower, at Spandau, and constitute a fund wherewith the preliminary expenses of Germany's next war may be paid in hard cash. Other twenty-eight million pounds have been .-employed in founding the im perial military fund, while the remaining seventeen million pounds odd were spent in strengthening the defenses of Elsass-Loth-ringen, and in remedying the damages done to those provinces during the war of 1870 71. The balance of the indemnity, between one hundred and sixty million pounds and one hundred and seventy million pounds; was divided, in exact proportion to the re spective numbers of the several populations, among'the German States which had partic ipated in the Franco-German struggle, name ly, the former North German Confederation, Bavaria, Wnrtemberg, Baden and Hesse, The portion allotted to the North German Confederation was dedicated by act of Par liament July 8, 1873, to the liquidation of the war loans, the re-armament of the impe rial forces and the augmentation of the let ter's numerical strength and fighting capaci ty. Similar dispositions of their shares in the mighty, spoil were made by the minor German States. Prussia spent her surplus in constructing strategical railways and in for tifying the eastern frontier. "Thus," as the London Telegraph says, "the colossal sums wrung from France in the hour of defeat and humiliation may be said to have been entirely absorbed by warlike preparations, and to have increased rather than diminished the burden of military harness hitherto so man fully and patiently borne by the long-suffer ing German people." , KECEJiT PUBLICATIONS. "Unto the Third and Fourth-Generation," by Helen Campbell, author of "The Ainslee Series," etc., is a strong story, illustrating in skillful characterization the principle of in herited traits, and developing most curiously the effects f rigid early teachings on im pressible and passionate natures. Mrs. Camp bell is a. practised writer, whose wit, good sense, and genuine dramatic instinct appear to advantage in this peculiar and powerful story. The idea of it is rather original that of a youth gifted with personal beauty, fine talents, and great strength of character (in cluding, however, a fiery and almost over mastering temper underlying his ordinary gentleness and amiability), who was, as his stern mother taught him to believe, "born under a curse," his father having suffered the extreme penalty of the law for a murder committed in a moment of passion. The gradual overcoming of both the curse and the temper constitute the chief motive of the story, though interwoven with it are many lines of interest, characters of a curious varie ty of attractiveness, and scenes of life in the woods, on the lakes, in the mines, and in the back country, such as have not been wrought out before. The story ends pleasantly, and is well worth reading. Published by Fords, Howard and Hulbert, New York, and for sale m this city by Judd the bookseller. Detective stories have a peculiar attraction for most readers, . and Emile Gaboriau, the popular French author, stands at the head of writers of novels of this order. His "Mys tery of Orcival" and "File No. 113" have for their detective hero one M. Lecoq, whose dashing boldness, keenness of insight into every detail, however minute, having the slightest bearing on a case in hand, and per sistence in following every clue, the author develops with a master's skill. To his last novel he has given the title "M. Lecoq," and in dramatic power, skillful management of plot, sensational interest and finely drawn characterization, it fully equals his previous efforts. The foundation of the story is a terrible tragedy in one of the lower purlieus of Paris. M. Lecoq is a subordinate detec tive in the police squad which arrests the perpetrator of the crime. The unraveling of the mystery which surronnds the matter is undertaken by M. Lecoq, who, in spite of the opposition of rival superiors, finally suc ceeds. The story of the origin and develop ment of the causes which led to the final tragedy is' told with great skill and clever ness, and covers years of plots and counter plots, showing the inevitable consequences of crime and revenge.

The grounds that are needed, or will be needed for fifty years to come, for the use of the park are included in the city limits of New Haven and not beyond. The rock, with suitable approaches, should be the background of the park, and the meadows and lands lying the south side of the rock with the lake, em bracing not more than one-quarter of the present salt meadows the other three-quarters being converted into dry land by throw ing up the materials excavated from the lake, with the filling found in the immediate neighborhood, allowing the water of the lake to rise no higher than the present surface of the meadows, so as not to interfere with the mill privilege above this, with the level land lying between the lake and the rock and the south front of the rock itself, will constitute one half of the lands of the park, and by far the most important half. The park then will be about one mile in length from north to south, with nearly half the width from east to west, making an eats, of about three hun dred acres." ' If more land is ever wanted hereafter to extend the park northerly it can probably be had at any time, it being entirely worthies,. " for purposes of cultivation. The park that the city wants is wanted now and we should like to see some jmmediate action on the part of the commissioners to secure it. The rea son why I attach the greatest importance to the south half of the park is that it is deci dedly the people's part of the park, it being reached in a little more than a mile from the centre of the city. Probably nine-tenths of the people that will visit the park when improved will walk, not having horses and carriages, hence not one in five will visit the top of the rock. But na ture has provided a stopping place about half way from the foot to the summit of the rock through which the principal pass to all parts of the park will be or is already made. This triangle of about an acre is or might be made passable of itself, having the mountain on two sides and the other facing and in full view of the city. L. ... -v : 3 . t 1 n . . - -... ; 'S 11 . -' " '.! W ' ":3 Puss and the Sparrows. A Battle Royal in Which the Cat is Roat ed by the Birds. From the Cleveland Leader. The other day a number of gentlemen were sitting in the detectives' room in the City Hall, when an English sparrow flew near the window, peeped in and darted away again. Captain Holzworth, who saw the little fel low, said that whenever he saw a sparrow it reminded him of a little scene weich occurred in his yard one cold day last winter. The sparrows, it seems, ascertained the fact that there was a knot-hole in the gable of his house, and took advantage of their knowledge by taking possession of the hole and a portion of his attic, where they passed the winter as snug as bugs in a rug. The captain's wife has a warm spot in her heart for birds So when the ground was covered with snow, and the little fellows ran a risk of starving to death, Mrs. H. would sweep away the snow and spread upon the ground a fine repast of crumbs. The sparrows soon learned to de pend upon her, and told their friends what a fine landlady they had. In consequence hun dreds of them congregated daily about the Captain's house and partook of his charity. Close to the spot where the birds were usual ly fed was a pile of bricks, and upon this pile the Captain's cherished mouser used to sta tion herself for the purpose of watching for prey. As soon as the birds would get com fortably settled about the crumbs the cat would pounce upon them and invariably get a tender sparrow for dinner. Finally the birds became accustomed to the cat's mode of pro cedure and would be on the watch whenever they were feeding. They were so alert that the cat would hardly get ready for a spring before they were up in the air and out of danger. One day they were eating as usual, and the rat as usual was watching them. Like a bolt of lightning the mouser jumped into their midst, but they were too quick for her, and escaped unhurt. Miss Tabby, not dis couraged, mounted the pile of bricks again and awaited their return. The sparrows, after flying about for some time, finally settled upon the fence at the foot of the lot, where they held a long and interesting confab. . Af ter chattering away for several minutes they cautiously returned to their crumbs and re sumed their eating, keeping all the while a sharp lookout for the enemy. After the cat had become satisfied that they were too much interested in satisfying their appetite to think of her, she made another spring. The birds were up in an instant, and instead of flying away as usual they formed themselves into a hollow square and charged upon the foe. Some got upon the cat's back and scratched and picked with all their might ; others flew right into her face, while the balance' made it interesting in the rear. The cat was so sur prised at first that she stood unable to move. The birds became more and more infuriated and fought such a savage battle that they drove the foe down the garden path on a full gallop and under the barn. They returned to their feast and were left to themselves the balance of the winter, the cat making herself scarce when they put in an appearance. "Nobody Will Ever See It." From the San Francisco Chronicle. A short time ago we called upon a certain party in business in Vallejo, and asked him why he did not advertise in the Chronicle. "Oh, because," ne answered, "what s the use ? Nobody will ever see it." "You're mistaken," said we ; "every page in our paper is read." "Nonsense :" he replied ; "even if they did read niy ad., people would never think of it again. I don't want to advertise." "5ut " . "No buts at all. I don't want to advertise. and don't bother me any more. I'm busy." And ne walked back into Ins store and strangled a poor little fly that was helping itself from a barrel of sugar. Time passeth and we never again intima ted "advertisement" to him, although meet ing him daily. Yesterday the gentleman called at our sanctum, looking a little uncer tain as to how he would be received. We cherished no hard feelings, and motioned him to a chair. "I suppose you heard of that little affair of mine below ?" "Oh, yes," said we, "that little escanade on Kearney street night before last? Yes, we've got all the particulars " "Musni JNot so loud, please," said he, "of course you are going to say nothing in the paper about it i" "And why not ? It s a matter of interest to your friends and the publio generally." "jaeavens: Wiy it would ruin me !" "Oh, no, tmess not. Nobody will ever see. it ." "Yes thev will. And it will ruin me as sure as I'm sitting here. I'll be the laughing stock of the town. They will see it !" We rose and touched him impressively on the shoulder. "WelL we will admit that the people will see it ; but then, you know, they will never think of it again I'1 His words came back to him like a flash, and he trembled so violently that his eyeballs fairly jingled ; and he was such an object of commiseration that- we promised to keep mum. This little moral is drawn from the above, which is applicable the world over : Ask a man to advertise, and he will immedi ately say in tha-majority of cases that "No body will ever see it," but advertise cratis some little indiscretion he may eommit, and he immediately grows indignant over the cer tainty that the whole world will know it.
