Dr. Lilgrhthlll takes pleasure and pride in submitting' to the consid eration of those interested the fol lowing statement of Mr. T. M. Cox, an old and prominent resident of New Haven. A Happy Experience. (From the Journal and Courier, July 10.) We take pleasure in presenting to our read ers the following card from Mr. T. M. Cox, an old resident of New Hayan, and a gentle man highly respected and widely known in our business and social circles. The state ment of his happy experience of Dr. Light- hill's treatment is full of interest and will be deservedly accepted by our community with the utmost confidence. Testimony of this nature and character reflects great credit on Dr. Lighthill's ability and skill, and cannot fail to establish him in public confidence. New Hatsw, July 9. It gives me great pleasure to bear witness to the remarkable skill of Dr. Iighthill and the successful results of his treatment. Fbr the past thirty-six years I had been troubled with a catarrhal complaint, which was very annoying and often interfered with my swal lowing and breathing. Of late years it at tacked my hearing, impairing it to a consid erable extent, and as it kept constantly in creasing upon me it subjected me to serious inconvenience. One of Dr. lighthill's pa tients, finding himself greatly benefited by his treatment,advised m. to plac. myself un der his care, and happily I did so. Dr. Light- hill effectually removed the eatarrhal com plaint and all its attendant troubles, and re stored my hearing to its former perfection and acuteness. I know Dr. Lighthill's repu tation is so well known that any recommen dation on my part is scarcely necessary, but I feel like discharging a duty to the afflicted in New Haven and vicinity to make this pub lic statement of my case, so that others may be enabled to embrace this opportunity of obtaining relief. My happy experience of the results of Dr. Lighthill's efforts has taught m. to appreci ate fully the value of specialties in medical practice, and I feel assured that a few min utes' conversation with Dr. Lightnill will con vince the most skeptical of the fact that he is a master of his profession. T. M. COX. 85 St. John street. 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 Deafness, Catarrh, aud dis eases of the Throat, Lungs and Nervous Sys tem, and it is with pardonable pride that he refers to the extraordinary success which at tended his efforts. His recent discoveries are of the highest practical importance, render ing treatment so effectual that relief is expe rienced at once, and permanent cures are of ten effected in the most stubborn and aggra vated cases j and it is one of the happy fea tures of his method that the applications cause neither pain nor distress, and can be readily administered to the most timid or nervous person. A candid opinion will inva riably be given as to the possibilities of a cure, and no ease will be accepted for treat ment which does not present a reasonable chance for success, while those who place themselves under Dr. Lighthill's professional care may rest assured of receiving every ben efit guaranteed by science, skill, and an ex tensive experience.

POOR TURKEY, If, as now seems probable, the European powers see fit to divide Turkey among them selves, the inhabitants of that hapless country will have reason to bear their fate with equa nimity, for thoy cannot be worse governed than they are, and they will, moreover, be likely to profit by the change. Turkey is absolutely bankrupt. Some of the banking houses of Constantinople have sent their funds to Paris and London, for their invest ments in Turkish securities are at an end, and the bankers who remain declare the financial condition of the country a hopeless one. We. select a few of the many facts which forcibly illustrate the injustice, the inefficiency and financial rottenness of the government. Over the lower of the two finished bridges across the Golden Horn, there are said to pass, every five minutes, 1,000 persons. Each foot passenger pays a fee of one-half of a cent. More is demanded from riders or driv ers of horses. The revenue to the govern ment from this bridge is at least $750 per day, and if the other bridge is included the receipts equal $350,000 per annum. This revenue has been hypothecated and rehy pothecated, and, indeed, there is a third series of claimants thereupon for security for money loaned. Thus does the government Bet a little money and tax those who want to go from one part of the city to the other. The army has remained unpaid for several months, and thousands of soldiers are sent into the country districts to live upon the impov erished people. 30,000 or 40,000 Circassian soldiers were -sent to one district in Asia Minor to live there without any provision for them whatever. These soldiers are wild and uncivilized. They have preyed upon the poor people, taking their food, their cattle and horses, and destroyed many lives, while others axe made to live in constant fear. Not withstanding this the government has not abated its efforts to collect the annual taxes, and it is known that food which has been sent to relieve the starving, the gift of char ity, has been seized by the government for taxes, and appropriated to its own use. Bands of robbers add to the miseries of the people. Not long ago one of these bands entered a village and required all the men to come together into an open place, and to lie upon the ground. A pistol was placed to each man's mouth, and he was forced by fear of death to give to these men the sums of money which they demanded. Beyond this they required them to say after them these words : "I give you this money willingly, with all my heart, and am thankful for the opportunity to give it to you." When a complaint was made to the authorities, and the case came up for examination, the rob bers appeared in full force, and in answer to the complaint asked the parties if they did not give them the money, and say they were glad to give it to them. There could be but one answer, and the just judge drove them out of the room. Such instances are fre quent. Multitudes of men publicly proclaim that they are robbers, and that they mean to be robbers, for they have no other way to support themselves. One of the most grievous and oppressive acts of the government is the recent reduction of the value of coins in circulation, manufac tured and issued by the government. Tko poor people had few of them, it is true ; that is, no one had any large quantity, but the number in circulation throughout European Turkey, Asia Minor, Syria and Egypt, was really a large sum in the aggregate. The original government value, and that at which they had been received by the people, ex ceeded slightly one dollar of our money. It was reduced to fifty cents, or less than one half, and this was the more severe when the crops had naturally failed from want of rain, and much that was growing was destroyed by ruffian government soldiers, and the cost of living made unusual. The Sultan's "household" consists of about 7,000 dependents. Of this large num ber in his family there are believed to be 1,500 women, consisting of the members of the harem and their servants, and the harems and the servants of his officers, all of whom are dependent upon "the palace." Besides the natural wants of this large number, some of them, at least, demand large gifts of money, so that a vast sum goes annually for this purpose, and the public knows not whether more goes to the support of the Saltan than is nominally appropriated in the budget, or not. " It has become a well known and well authenticated fact, in some circles, that if the Sultan learns of sums of money in the possession of the departments, for each one has a treasury of its own, he often sends for it, and the official dare not refuse. This he appropriates to his own personal use, according to his pleasure. Whatever hap pens he does not intend to be caught without money, and it is known that he has sent -out of the country, to be placed to his own cred it, as much as f 100,000 at a time. Other illustrations of the melancholy state of affairs in Turkey might be given, but these will suffice. How such a government has managed to exist so long is a mystery. It is a disgrace to Europe, and its end, which now seems to be near, will be welcomed by very lover of mankind. EDITORIAL NOTES. Bristow is not a Hancock man and brands the statement that he is as "unauthorized and untrue." General William H. Bulkeley, of Hartford, is carefully put forward as a possible Repub lican candidate or Governor. ' Tennor's accurate prediction of the cool spell will do much to increase his reputation as s weather prophet. His system seems to deserve more attention than it has received. Railroads in the United States with a mile age of 84,000 miles earned in round numbers $529,000,000 in 1879, the largest yearly rail road earnings ever reported in this country. As compared with the earnings of 1878, the gain was 8 per cent., and that too in the face of a very material reduction in rates. In the Italian Parliament recently Signor Giovagnoli gave his co-legislators something to think about by charging them with forget ting the existence of eighteen millions of the working classes. In past times, he continued, religious belief mitigated the suffering of the poor classes. They believed in heaven.and the hope of Paradise enabled them patiently to bear the tribulations of this world. Now science has dissipated this illusion, and there is not a single unfortunate who does not as pire to obtain here below his share of happi ness, his share of bread, of wine, of meat. If science could not resolve an outlet, social vio lence would find a way to do so. A German physician cospiders insanity in the novel light of a boon. He holds that the loss of reason lands the sufferer from a sea of trouble into one of comparative calm often into one of decided happiness ; and attempts to restore such a person to sanity would be cruel rather than kind. Moreover, he insists that without a certain amount of insanity, success in life, in the ordinary acceptation of the term, is quite impossible. All eminent men, he contends, are decidedly more or less mad. Many of them are dangerous mono maniacs whom it would be desirable on pub lic grounds to shut up, but who nevertheless achieve rand careers, and are credited with doing a vast amount of good. This false no tion he attributes to the fact that the greater mass of mankind are also insane, and quite unable to distinguish between good and evil. Jus:ice Swayne adds his testimony in refu tation of the Democratic lie that he reflected upon General Garfield's honesty in one of his opinions. Says he : "I never wrote a word of what is attributed to me with quotation marks. I never knew anything of the facts of the matter charged against General Gar field, and it was certainly never in any shape before the Supreme Court. I had, therefore, neither occasion nor opportunity to express any judicial opinion upon the subject. It is not stated where any case in which General GarfieldjWas concerned is reported. My con fident impression is that I never heard of such a case before. General Garfield is a personal friend of mine, and I have the high est confidence in his integrity. The state ments in the World are an entire fabrication and without a particle of truth to sustain them." Evidence asKumulates that the time has not yet come when the Southern Democrats can safely be put in power. The AttorneyGen eral has received official reports of the at tempts of Texas Democrats to prevent Cus toms Inspector Bissell from making Repub lican speeches, and the threats made to take his life after his first speech. It seems that a crowd of twenty-five armed men waylaid him on the road to his home and openly threatened his life if he continued to make speeches. When he returned to town he was insulted by a gang of Democrats -Tind again threatened, and finally a plot wns laid to kill him, of which he learned, and he was obliged to abandon his property and go to Galveston for safety. The officer who forwarded the report says that unless the government can do something in this case, such a thing as free speech will soon be unknown in that quarter. They have been going too fast in Ohio in the matter of emancipating Woman. Some thing more than a year ago the Ohio Legisla ture passed a law permitting women to be notaries public. Two or three women were commissioned, and have served under the law. But the Attorney General of the State has lately given an opinion that the law is unconstitutional, the constitution ordaining that no person shall be appointed or elected to any office in the State unless he possesses the qualifications of an elector. As women are not electors in Ohio they, cannot be no taries public if a notary public is on offi cer, and the Attorney General holds that he is. These women who were commissioned notaries are, therefore, without status as such, and, of course, cannot transact the business of a notary. This provision of the Ohio constitution will also prevent women serving as school officers, or as trustees of State institutions. If this opinion of the Attorney-General stands as acorrect interpre tation of the law, nothing but an amendment to the constitution will open the way to wo men to hold office in that State. It would be a good thing if "promoters" of certain mining and other speculative en terprises in this country could be made to feel the law as some English promoters have. The case was one which has thousands of parallels in England and many in the United States. A company was formed to buy a pa tent for making artificial fuel and certain works for 56,000. The promoters, in their prospectus, said nothing about a secret agree ment entered into between themselves and the patentee and owner, by which he was to receive only 2,000 of the purchase money, and all the rest, 54,000, was to be divided among the promoters ! Had this bargain been published to the world in block and white, the company, of course, would never have got a shilling from outside subscriptions. A man who had subscribed and paid in 1, 000 on the strength of the prospectus, after ward learning the true story, brought action against the promoters for the recovery of his money on the ground of fraud in the state ment made by them. Mr. Justice Grove, before whom the case first came, gave judgment for the plaintiff. This has now been affirmed by two out of three judges of the Court of Appeal. Should it reduce the volume of deceptive and foolish stock company speculations in England, all but knaves will be the gainers. But no substan tial business interest, which will bear the close examination it ought to stand before men invest in it, will suffer from the decision. TEN CENTS A a,WART.

The Norwich Bicycle Club have adopted a rule in eases where horses are liable to be frightened by the bicycle. It is to have the driver of such horse raise his hand twice, when the bicycle rider will get down, put his bicycle under his coat, clasp his hands be hind him, and appear to be looking, intently in another direction as if he didn't know what was going on. This, it is thought, will give the horse confidence to go by. How ever, it is not the bicycle that scares the horse, but the legs of the rider. Danbury News. A pretty little anecdote is told of a child in Newton. She was called one day by her mother to speak 'to another lady standing near, who, she was told, was a grandmother. Looking at her for a moment, she quickly said: "Oh, no, she is not a grandmother; she is too new to be a grandmother ; grand mothers have gray hair and wear spectacles." And she could not be convinced of the fact. COJtMDSICATIOSS. Tne Pay of Assessors and School Teachers and Principals. To the Editor of the Jocbnai. and Courier : "Taxpayer" asks what we think of the pay of the assessors. If a prudent and successful business man had such a work to be per formed we presume he would find men every way qualified equal to the incumbents, who would be glad to work eight hours for three dollars per day. . But the pay of the assessors is on a level with the pay of other public ser vants. The government of New Haven pays for service about 40 per cent, above the fair market value. A young woman graduates from our free schools, her education the gift of the taxpayers. She is employed as a teach er, and after some experience and practice she is paid $800. The schools are kept from 180 to 190 days, which is about $4.20 per day or $21 per week of twenty-five hours. The principals are paid $2,300, which is some $12 per day or $G0 per week. The principal of the Westville district school is paid $1,200. He is spoken of as a competent and desirable teacher, probably the equal of the best principals in the city district. Why this dif ference f Intelligent, skillful mechanics are glad to accept $1.50 to $2.50, the medium not above $2 per day. They have families to support, and if they own a home for their families worth $4,000, they must pay tax towards the large salaries. Now, if men who work for $2 per day are willing to be taxed to pay from $4 to $12 per day to then public servants, then both parties are satisfied. But if the taxpayers are not satisfied to pay such exorbitant salaries, they have only to rise up in their majesty and demand a retrench ment. A republican government is a govern ment of the people, and not of the aristocra cy, and the people can and must be heard and their judgment respected. They should eall a meeting for consultation, pass resolu tions, appoint a large committee to investi gate and devise measures for redress from their grievances and oppression. Equity. COERESPOXDEME. Probpet-t Grove, Shelter Island The Chnnge at Name Other Changes Dr. Denses'i Cottage Visitors From New Haren Real Estate The Camp Meet ing. Pbospect Gkove, July 21. To the Editor of the Journal and Courier : The past year has been One. of changes and decided improvements at Prospoet, Shelter Island. In the first place, the name has gone through an added stage of development, and Prospect is now Prospect Grove. Some say that the change was made in deference to the old custom of adding a cognomen to tell the recipient's claim to fame, and that it was thus intended that, at the sound of the name, the image of a dense and grateful grove should rise before the imagination, as well as the picture of a wide and pleasing prospect. Others, more prosaic, say that the change was made simply that a separate post office might be established here, there being already one Prospect in the State. Each one is at liberty to choose his own hypothesis, but certain it is that we are very soon to havo a postoffice of our own. More important are the changes about the hotel and grounds. A large addition has been made to the hotel, containing a parlor of generous proportions and some forty large and airy rooms, all of which has increawxl the attractiveness and pleasure of hotel life in no small degree. A number of new cot tages have been built, one of which, Dr. Dennen's, has been noticed in your columns. It has introduced a new style of cottage build ing, and will do a great deal toward breaking up the uniformity of design that was begin ning to be noticed. General Greeley, Dr. Dennen, Presiding Elder Hill, Messrs. J. E. Searles and C. P. Armstrong are here with their families for the season. The direct communication opened by the J. H. Storin is bringing more New Haven people yearly, and soon the accusation that because a person passes the summer here he must forsooth be a Brooklynite will no long er be made. Another sten in advance ia the establiRh- ment of a real estate pffice by Mr. W. B. Hill, of New Haven, who aims to meet the growing demand for cottages and building lots. He offers to send to any address a complete directory of all the routes of travel to Prospect Grove. It has long been a mat ter of surprise to the writer that people with money to invest do not put it here. It is no uncommon thing for an owner of a cottage to realize fifteen per cent, on capital invested, and to net eleven or twelve per cent, requires but very little ingenuity. For several .years back every available cottage has been rente i i. .j-.. .. . i, ..... r .1. .. ...... 1 this year good authorities say a hundred more cottages could have been rented to parties anxious to pay almost any price. The opening of the annual camp meeting is fixed for August 15th. Messrs. Pentecost and Stebbins are to conduct it. Their ser vices last season are remembered with pleas ure and their coming is anticipated with eagerness, although the reverend gentlemen, coming in that intense week of last season, did, in a moment of heat, propose to change the island's name from Shelter to "Swelter." There is a large proportion of young peo ple here and there is plenty of life. A ball nine has been organized, and athletic games and regattas will soon be in order. When they come you may (if so desired) hear from R. R. A Wife Murderer. Remarkable Discovery of His Crimjl The following is communicated to Nature by Mr. H. N. Moseley, on the authority of General Sir. J. H. Lefroy, late Governor of the Bermudas : "In the autumn of 1878 a man committed a terrible crime in Somerset, which was for some time involved in deep mystery. His wife, a handsome and decent mulatto woman, disappeared suddenly and entirely from sight after going home from church on Sunday, October 20. Suspicion immediately fell up on the husband, a clever young fellow of about thirty, but no trace of the missing woman was left behind, and there seemed a strong probability that the crime would re main undetected. On Sunday, October 27, however, a week after the woman had disap peared, some Somerville boatmen, looking out towards the sea, as is their custom, were struck by observing in the Long Bay Channel the surface of which was ruffled by a slight breeze, a long streak of calm, such as, to use tbir illustration, a cask of oil usually diffu es when in the water. The feverish anxiety about the missing wonlan suggested some strange connection between this singular calm and the mode of her disappearance. Two or three days after why not sooner I cannot tell you her brother and three other men went out to the spot where it was observed, and from which it had not disappeared since Sunday, and with a series of fish-hook ar ranged along a long line dragged the bottom of the channel, but at first without success. Shifting the position of the boat, they drag ged a little further to the windward, and presently the line was caught. With water glasses the men discovered that it was caught in a skeleton, which was held down by some heavy weight. They pulled on the line ; something suddenly gave way, and up came the skeleton of the trunk, pelvis and legs of a human body, from which almost every ves tige of flesh had disappeared, but which, from the minute fragments remaining and the terrible stench, had evidently not lain long in the water. The husband was a fisher man, and Long Bay Channel was a favorite fishing-ground, and he calculated, truly enough that the fish would very soon destroy all means of identification ; but it never en tered into his head that their ravages, com bined with the process of decomposition, would set free the matter which was to write the traces of, his crime on the surface of the water. The case seemed to be an exceeding ly interesting one ; the calm is not mention ed in any book on medical jurisprudence that I have, and the doctors seem to have had ex perience of such an uncommon occurrence. A diver went down and found a stone with a rope attached, by which the body had been held down, and also portions of the scalp and of the skin of the sole of the foot, and of clothing, by means of which the body was identified. The husband was found guilty and executed. Mr. George N. Ward, the old treasurer of the F. fc M. savings bank of Middletown, has withdrawn his resignation and been reelected. .
