Gives bis personal attention to procuring
Patents for Inventions
IN THE
United States and Foreign Countries
A PRACTICE of more than fourteen years, and
frequent visits to the Patent Office has given
him a familiarity with every department of, and mode
of proceeding at, the Patent Office, which, together
with the fact that he now visits Washington semi
monthly to give his personal attention to the interests
of his clients, warrants him in the assertion that no
office in the country is able to offer the same facilities
to Inventors in securing their inventions by Letters
Patent and particularly to those whose applications
have been rejectedan examination of which he will
make freeof charge.
Preliminary examination, prior to application for
patent, made at Patent Office, at a small charge.
His facilities for procuring Patents in foreign
Countries are mi equaled.

KNOW THYSELF !
The untold miseries that result
from indiscretion in early life
may be alleviated and cured.
Those who doubt this assertion
should purchase the new medical
work pnblished by the PEABODY
MEDICAL INSTITUTE, Boston,
entitled THE SCIENCE OP
LIFE ; or, SELF-PRESERVATION.
Exhausted vi-
ty, nervous and physical debility, or vitality im
paired by the errors of youth or too close application
to business, may be restored and manhood regained.
Two hundredth edition, revised and enlarged, just
published. It is a standard medical work, the best In
the English language, written by a physician of great
experience, to whom was awarded a gold and jeweled
medal by the National Medical Association. It con
tains beautiful and very expensive engravings. Three
hundred pages, more than 60 valuable prescriptions
for all forms of prevailing disease, the result of many
years of extensive and successful practice, either one
of which is worth ten times the price of the book.
Bound in French cloth ; price only $1, sent by mail
post-paid.
The London Lancet says : "No person should be
without this valuable book. The author is a noble
benefactor. n
The Tribune says : " The author has had unprece
dented success in dealing with nervousness of all
kinds and its affections, whether due to pernicious
habits or inherited. He is a Nervo-specialist, and
therefore knows whereof he writes with such power
and ability."

HOLIE EVIDENCE
Of the Success of Dr. Lighti
hill's Practice in New
Haven.
Statement of Mr. X. M. Cox,
Xo.'SS Si. John Street, '
Xew Haven.
Dr. Ugrhthill 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 follerwing card from Mr. T. M. Cox,
an old resident of New Haren, 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
deseryedly accepted by our community with
the utmost confidence. Testimony of this
nature and character reflects gxeat credit on
Dr. Lighthill's ability and skill, and cannot
fail to establish him in public confidence.
New Haykn, July 8.
It gires me great pleasure to bear witness
to the remarkable skill of Dr. Iighthill and
the successful results of his treatment. For
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 lata 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. Une of Dr. Ldghthin b pa
tients, finding himself greatly benefited by
his treatment, advised me to plaoe myself un
der his care, and happily I did so. Dr. light-
hill effectually removed the catarrhal 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 me 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

Hartford, June 25, 1880.
MORE TO THINK ABOUT.
Colonel John Hay, who delivered the open
ing speech of the Republican campaign in
Northern Ohio at Cleveland, Saturday night,
answered the question. Which of the two
parties has shown the greatest business ca
pacity, and which offers the best guarantee
for further successful 'service ? in a very
complete and telling way. For twenty years,
said he, the Republicans have had the execu
tive control of affairs and are, to a great ex
tent, responsible for the stewardship of this
vast estate during that time. For more than
twenty years before that the Democrats con
trolled this country. The year 18G0 was, like
1880, a year of peace and prosperity. It is
fair, therefore, to compare the general situa
tion of the country, in a financial and com
mercial point of view, at the time when the
Democrats left power, with the situation to
day, after twenty years of Republican rule.
If the nation has not retrograded the party
in power has not prevented its growth and
health. If it has gone steadily forward, the
party in power is entitled to some credit for
having assisted in its progress, and if it has
made great and extraordinary advances, the
party under whose rule those advances have
been made is entitled to the gratitude and the
confidence of the people. 'What are the
facts ? The. following table will show them :

S: Si:
In one word, said Mr. Hay, we never be
fore produced so much iron, so much cotton,
so much wheat, so much corn, so much pe
troleum, as during this past year. We never
made so many manufactured articles ; we
never sold so many to other countries and we
never bought so many from other countries.
Under Democratic rule.it took all our specie,
and something over, to meet the excess of
our imports over our exports. Now, after
twenty years of Republican administration,
we keep all our vastly-increased production
of the precious metals ; and have called on
Europe beside for over $75,000,000 in the
eleven months preceding the 1st of June, to
pay for the excess of goods which we have
sent over the water. We are not only doing
this vast volume of business, but we are mak
ing a profit and laying up wealth at tho rate
of about $155,000,000 a year. Mr. Hay does
not claim too much when he says this amaz
ing change is due in great part to the practice
of Republican principles due to the change
in the policy of the Government in regard to
the great matters of national concern, the
tariff, internal taxation, the fostering care the
Government has shown toward manufactures;
the more honest and systematic collection and
management of the revenue ; and more than
all this, to the strong and irresistible rise of
the national prosperity and spirit, through
the abolition of slavery, the maintenance of
the financial honor of the country, and the
final defeat of the spirit of disunion.
The record of failures in this country is
effectively used by Mr. Hay. The circular
of Dun, Barlow & Co. for July 14 shows that
the failures for the first half of 1S80 are less
than 2,500 in number (2,407), with liabilities
amounting to only $33,000,000, figures rela
tively smaller than have been chronicled in
the memories of business men. The moment
resumption was accomplished, through the
honor and the courage of the Republican ad
ministration, this astonishing improvement
in the mercantile world began. The . first
half of 1879 showed a lessened loss by bad
debts of fully one-half over the first half of
1878, the year before resumption. But to
the amazement of the most sanguine, the re
sult this year shows that even that enormous
ratio Of improvement is fully sustained ; for
the liabilities of the last half year are only
$33,000,000 as compared with $65,000,000 in
1870, and $130,000,000 in 1878 one-quarter
what they were in the year before resump
tion, when the Democratic party was mov
ing heaven and earth to prevent the Repub
licans from accomplishing it, and prophesy
ing widespread ruin if it was carried through.
This showing, which is a fair and temper
ate one, speaks to the understanding and to
the interests of every workingman and every
business man. Do workingmen and business
men favor a change of policy when the best
there is to say of such a change is that
its effect upon public prosperity is doubt
ful, or do they favor, "letting well enough
alone?"
EDITORIAL NOTES.
The Belgian towing system now m use on
the Erie canal does not please "the Canal
Boat-owners' Association of the State of New
York." It is claimed that it is a nuisance and
causes accidents to the boats moved by
horses,, aa well as serious detentions and
anoyance. The association will henoeforth
labor for its removal.
New Haven has a population, according to
the census returns, of 62,861, and is well sat
isfied with her growth in comparison with
Hartford and the other cities of the State. It
seems a pity, though, that at least 139 more
persons could not have been found and
counted here, so that our population might
have been set down as 63,000. We have
heard of a number who were missed by the
enumerators, and it is not unlikely that in
the whole city enough were missed to bring
the count up to the desired figures. In Chi
cago the census taken by the letter carriers
added 25,000 to the figures of the regular
enumerators, and a similar result was ob
tained in St. Louis.
The bright Hartford correspondent of the
Springfield Sunday Republican thinks that
eye-sight in Connecticut isn't what it once
was, and that no man can be trusted to keep
his eye on the senatorship who cannot match
worsted. He also says : "We are now hav
ing our railroad employes examined for color
blindness, and they are sorting yarns and
worsteds, guessing how many fingers are
snapped np in front of them, trying to see
objects balanced on top of their heads, learn
ing to peek through key-holes, and otherwise
going over the various interesting games that
make up two dollars' worth of amusement.
The result is that some first-rate engineers,
who have seen danger signals often and often,
who have run trains safely for many years,
and whose only occupation is driving engines,
will be turned off. There must be a good
deal of nonsense about the thing or else there
would have been trouble before this, since
the cause is not new. Possibly before they
finish our railroad commissioners will aban
don the derailing theory of the Tariffville
crash and decide that that was due to a fail
ure to match ribbons or else timbers ; cer
tainly to some oversight for which somebody's
eyes should be examined." :
Three Cabinet Ministers of the Dominion
of Canada, Sir John A. Macdonald, Sir
Charles Tupper and Mr. Pope, arrived in
London ten days ago to meet a syndicate to
arrange the terms upon which a capital of
20,000,000 can be raised for the purpose of
constructing the Canada Pacific railroad.
The consideration offered to investors in a
proposed company is fifty million acres of
land ; but as the value of this land is de
pendent upon the completion of the railroad
it follows that English capitalists are scarce
ly likely to purchase stock without a Govern
ment guarantee either from the Imperial or
the Dominion Executive. Such a guarantee
would necessarily be real, and would involve
the payment of interest amounting to at least
$3,000,000 a year. This is not likely to be
met by the Imperial exchequer, and it must
therefore devolve upon the Dominion. The
Echo thinks that with a population of only
about 4,000,000 this would be a most serious
burden. The Canada Pacific railroad has al
ready proved a disastrous conception to a
former Conservative. Government under Sir
John A. Macdonald ; and it might again im
peril his administration, and, no less, his rep
utation, if, under the influence of financiers
whose interest lies in floating a gigantic com
pany, and under an undue desire to render
his name illustrious by doing some great
thing,. he should allow his mind to be divert
ed from the true welfare and the solid pros
perity of the sparse population whose chief
administrator he has the privilege to be.
Professor Riley, the eminent entomologist,
talks very encouragingly to southern planters
of their ability to vanquish the destructive
cotton-worms by means of poison and at a
comparatively trifling expense. He advocates
the use of London purple, a refuse material
obtained in the manufacture of aniline dyes,
and the cost of which is trifling" in compari
son with Paris green. This material he says
ought not to cost the planters more than ten
cents a pound, and half a pound is sufficient
for an acre of cotton plants. The professor
tells the planters, who have been in the habit
of regarding the worm as a necessary and
incurable evil, that they have it in their pow
er at a trifling cost to prevent serious de
struction to the crop. Professor Riley urged
the importance of having the materials in
readiness beforehand. Similar conditions
cause simultaneous development of the worm
over large areas, and a sudden general de
mand for poisons, which forthwith go up in
price and are often unobtainable just when a
delay of two or three days may mean ruin.
He spoke most hopofully of pyrethrum, as it
was dangerless and effectual. He expressed
the conviction that as a result of the commis
sion's work, the planter will very soon be
himself producing at nominal and trifling
cost a safe antidote that will take the place
of arsenical poisons, and he expects to test
and perfect a simple contrivance that will
throw the antidote on the lower side of the
leaves of ten to fifteen rows at once, killing
the young caterpillars and the young boll
worms and lodging the material where it can
not be washed away with every rain.
The Court of Appeal of the English Divorce
Court lately affirmed the judgment of the
court below in a very remarkable case. The
petitioner was committee of the estate of
William Baker, a lunatic, and he prayed the
dissolution of Baker's marriage, on the
ground of his wife's adultery. Against the
prayer of Baker's committee it was urged
that the husband, if he recovered his senses,
might condone her offense, and the judge
observed anent this that the possibility of a
husband pardoning his wife is not to be re
garded as remote, bt is, in fact, as the rec
ords of his court show, a fact of every day
occurrence. But, on the other hand, great
wrong might accrue by denying proceedings
against the adulterous wife of a lunatic, since
she might be left in possession of property
settled on her by her husband" which she and
her paramour might enjoy, to the exclusion
of the lunatic. She might exercise power of
appointment in favor of the paramour, or
the children of her and his adultery, or a
spurious offspring might be foisted upon her
husband and his family, by which the devo
lution of estates or titles might be diverted
in aid of illegitimate objects. But the con
sideration which pressed most "upon the
court against giving the relief sought was
this : If a person holding (as Roman Catho
lics do) the dissolution of a marriage to be
unlawful in the sight of God should have the
misfortune to become insane, his committee
might, from some question of money, obtain
a decree absolving his marriage. But this
and all other considerations he held to be
overpowered by the decision of the House of
Lords in the Mordaunt case, which amounted
to this that as proceedings for divorce are
civil, recourse must be had in such case to
the ordinary forms of civil courts, where lu
natics are litigants, albeit no provision for
the case of lunatics is contained in the act.
His decision was, therefore, that the insanity
of a husband or wife is not a bar to a suit by
the committee for the dissolution of a luna
tic's marriage. -

COMMUNICATION'S.
What "Voter" Thinks About It.
To the Editor of the Joubnai. ajto Cotjbikb :
The communication from "X." in Satur
day's Coubieb came to my notice as being
somewhat flavored with a feeling of dissatis
faction in reference to the manner in which
the salaries of some of the principals and
teachers in our public schools is being agi
tated. I would ask "X." how he would like
to work in a shop for sixty cents a day, ten
hours a day, six days in a week, fifty-two
weeks in a year, as hundreds of nice, respecta
ble girls do in our city, of which nineteen
out of twenty are . fully competent to
fill the places, to say the least,
of two-thirds of the teachers who
are at present holding lucrative positions
in our common schools requiring no more
knowledge and not half the skill that is exer
cised in the every day life of the industrious
shop girL It is all very well for people to
talk who are getting a salary of two thousand
dollars a year and a three months' vacation
thrown in besides, together with a whole or
half holiday every time it rains. I believe in
giving a fair remuneration for services ren
dered in training the young minds in the wr.y
of usefulness, but I am not in favor as a tax
payer of paying upwards of two dollars an
hour for examining a few papers from the
primary class ard calling it hard work, so
much so that it is necessary to work over
time. Let justice be done. Give every one
a fair compensation. Let the principals
have fair pay, but let us not as taxpayers
support the extravagance indulged in.

The Prince's Party For the Queen.
Victoria. Comes Out of Her Seclusion to
Attend a. Garden Party at Marlboro
House,
From the New York World.
Fashionable London was much electrified
on Wednesday, July 14, by the appearance of
Queen Victoria at a garden party given by
tho Prince and Princess of Wales at Marlbo
rough House. The Queen's weather came
with her. The day was magnificent and the
London papers are full of the brilliant suc
cess of the festival, which was a festival also
for the crowd m St. James' street and Tall
Mall. One of the London "society" journals
rebukes the Prince for not being sufficiently
"select" in regard to the people whom he in
vited, but lor all that the guests and the cos
tumes seem to have been satisfactory to the
gazing multitude without and to that some
what particular lady, the Queen, within. The
1 Princess of Wales wore a costume compound
ed of light blue and celadon green and re
ceived her guests in a very pretty fashion sur
rounded by five children, the little princesses
wearing blue. The Duchess of Connaught and
Strathearne wore a fawn-colored satin
skirt in plaits, with a tight-fitting shawl
pattern bodice. She had two doubles dressed
like her.
The Marchioness of Anglesea wore a pale
gray satin with plisses of fine Indian muslin
edged with lace, a fichu a la Maria Antoinette
of Indian muslin, the bodice made high, but
with elbow sleeves ; a gray satin bonnet and
white feathers completed this lovely dress.
Tho still magnificont looking Duchess of Wel
lington was in black. The Marchioness of
Tavistock wore a short dress of black bro
cade, with kiltings of deep orange satin the
same shade slightly appearing throughout the
costume. The Duchess of Cleveland wore
cream-colored Madras muslin, embroidered
in gold over cream-colored silk. The Coun
tess of Bristol's dress was a long bodice and
trainedj skirt of rich cream-colored satin em
broidered in rose-leaves; the underskirt
showed plaited flounces of pale eau do Nile
satin ; many of the ladies wore short walking
dresses, but a large proportion of long trains
appeared. Lady Isabel Clayton wore a coat
and train of rich olive-green velvet, embroid
ered in pale yellow flowers ; underskirt of
pale yellow satin, covered with small floun
ces. The Countess of Clarendon was in pale
blue satin; the Countess of Wilton wore white
satin covered with richly beaded black passe
menterie ; Lady Sophia Rous wore a coat of
dark velvst over a skirt flounced to the waist
in coffee-colored muslin and lace ; a waistcoat
of brocaded satin showed below the coat bod
ice ; the Hon. Mrs. Colville wore dark green
velvet and silk ; Miss Wemyss, white satin ;
Miss Somers Cocks was dressed entirely in
deep geranium color. The Duchess of Athole
wore a white soft silk dress; bonnet to match;
a wide black chenille fringe round the neck,
and also on other parts of the dress. The
Marchioness of Hnntly, a very dork red, verg
ing on brown, striped silk, trimmed with
beads of the same color. The Countess of
Annesley, a mauve silk, trimmed with plum
color. The Countess of Bective, a block silk
with gold flowers; bodice, a black jersey,
gold silk sleeves ; bonnet of gold lace, in a
toque shape, and in her hand a vast boquet
of crimson roses. The Countess of Cadogan
wore a dark blue silk, navy blue shade; jersey
bodice of the same shade. The Countess of
Dudley, a white soft silk ; bonnet to match.
Julia Countess of Jersey, a narrow striped
silk, yellow and red, mode two deep small
kiltings about a quarter of a yard deep under
a prettily looped-up train, bodice and train in
one. Tb Countess of Shrewsbury, a black
silk, covered with jet ; bonnet black, also
trimmed with jet. Viscountess Dalrymple, a
white soft silk, trimmed with pale bonnet to
match. Viscountess Castlerengh, a black silk
trimmed with handsome black and gold bro
cade, bodice and train in one, and looped up
one side, showing the brocade. The Hon.
Mrs. Henry Campbell, dark ruby satin and
velvet, front of the dress plaitings of satin,
bodice composed of satin and velvet, back
of the dress velvet, trimmed aound with nar
row lace.
Mrs. Wheeler was, as usual, dressed in ex
cellent taste. Mrs. Langtry wore a black-and-gold
bodice and a black skirt embroid
ered with large gold fans. On Her Majesty's
arrival she was received by the Prince and
Princess of Wales and all the members of the
family ; and bowing cheerfully the Queen
wanted tnrougn a double line of visitors to
the tent specially prepared for her reception.
ine lawn loosed Dncnt and cav with the
handsome crimson and gold embroidered tents
brought by the Prince of Wales from India ;
under the larger of whichtea, splendid fruit
and other refreshments were served for
the Queen and royal family.
The Queen wore deep mourning, as she al
ways does, but was in excellent spirits, and
made herself very agreeable to her friends.
Neither Mr. Gladstone nor Lord Beaconsfield
was present, as the Irish Compensation bill
was going on in Parliament.
The papers notice some oddities and hu
mors of the entertainment, as for example, the
appearance of certain ladies in ball dresses
filled in at the neck with showers of lace and
mines, and of certain others in short kilted
dresses of simple cotton and with straw bon
nets. Also the Siamese Embassy in queer lit
tle petticoats made a sensation by wearing
British stove-pipe hats. One elderly lady is
described as a real nenre of fun" in bar
long robe andjtrain of white satin gorgeously
striped with blue red, and with a large hat, in
shape something between what are known as
the Beefeater and Marie Stuart. This won
derful edifice was laden with' red and blue ;
feathers and trimmed with a wealth of pearl
beads. And as the streets were well waternd
and filled with carriages so that on leaving
juariuorougn nf use many lames walked down
Pall Mall to the Duke of York's column be
fore they could reach their equipages, lifting
up their delicate garden dresses as they went,
observers in the club windows were impress
ed with a conundrum which with a conjectural
answer is thus formulated by our. London
namesake: "Why is it that some ladies dis
play such lengths of black, red and golden
silk stocking on such occasions ? I am very
much afraid they do not wear any petti
coats,"
