Sleen after fatigue, and health after disease, are
two of the sweetest experiences known to man.
Fourteen years is a long; time in which to suffer, yet
Mr. Peter Lawler of Dalton, Mass., had led a miser
able life for that period through the presence of
stone in the bladder. That he sought in all direc
tions tor a cure is an almost supernuous statement.
He did obtain temporary relief, but nothing more.
Last January he called on Dr. David Kennedy of
Rondout, N. x., who said, after examination: ''Mr.
Lawler, you have stone in the bladder. We will first
try DR. DAVID KENNEDY'S FAVORITE REM
EDY before risking an operation.1 A few days
later the following letter passed through the Ron
Dalton, Mass;, February 6.
Dear Dr. Kennedy The day after I came home I
passed two gravel stones, and am doing nicely now.
Dr. Kennedy now has the stones at his office, and
they are sufficiently formidable to justify the claim
that KENNEDY'S FAVORITE REMEDY is the
leading specific for stone in the bladder. In his let
ter Mr. Lawler mentions that FAVORITE REMEDY
alsocured him of rheumatism. The subjoined cer
tificate tells its own story:

Mr. Peter Lawler has been a resident of this town
for the past seventeen years, and in our employ for
fifteen, and in all these years he has been a good

He has nad some chronic disease to our knowledge
for most of the time, but now claims to be, and is,
in apparent good health.

Dalton, Mass., June 9, 1884.
Dr. Kennedy Dear Friend Thinking you might
like to hear again from an old patient, I am going
to write you. It is now three and a half years since
first I went to see you. As I told you then I was
troubled with Kidney Disease for about fifteen
years, and had seven of the best doctors to be found,
but I received only temporary relief until I visited
you and commenced taking your "Favorite Rem
edy." I continued taking the Remedy according
to your directions, and now consider myself a well
man. Very graciously yours,

That useful and mnch-lalked-abont being
the American Workingman must feel
somewhat flattered by the attention paid him
in political platforms, in the newspapers and
on the stump. He must think that he is a
very important personage, especially about
election time. The advocates of both the
great parties are busy telling what they (the
parties) have done for him. And it is very
plain that the advocates of the Republican
party have much the best of the discussion.
It would be hard to find any legislation by
the Democratic party when it was in power
designed to foster industry and benefit labor.
But when the Republicans came into power
they soon began to demonstrate their genu
ine interest in the laboring element of
the country. In a powerful editorial the
Washington National Republican calls atten
tion to two of the grandest measures in the
interest of labor with which the 'pages of
history are marked which the Republican
party put into effect on the first day of 1863.
These were the liberation of the slaves and
the passage of the homestead law.
The destruction of slavery, it is pointed
out, opened up a virgin field to the army of
free labor. To-day in Georgia, Tennessee,
the Carolines, Virginia and Alabama work-
ingmen by the thousands are making a liv
ing in iron mines, coal mines, cotton facto
ries, foundries, rolling mills, blast furnaces,
and other forms of industries,' where twenty-
five years ago the workingman was barred
out and unwelcome. Such manufacturing
cities as Roanoke, Virginia, and Birmingham,
Alabama, are as directly the result of Repub
lican legislation as they would have been had
the party passed laws and provided means
for their building.
The homestead law put it in the power of
the humblest toiler to enter any part of the
public domain and take unchallenged pos
session of an estate which through his indus
try would soon enable him to put
himself ' and his family beyond the
shadow of want. "The bound
less West is dotted with prosperous home
steads acquired through this grand poor
man's law, the owners of which but for its
munificent provisions would to-day be labor
ing in the crowded marts of industry with
out the prospect of more than a hard-earned
living. And the gracious bounty of the
homestead law is still held out to every poor
man in the land."
The Republican party has followed these
two great enactments by laws tending in the
same general direction, and the benefits
which have been conferred on laboring men
and women by them ' are not few or small.
The party intends to continue to help labor
ers by maintaining the policy of protection,
and on this ground, if no other, all interested
should vote with the party.
No "fizzle" about the Republican rally last
Terrible things are happening nowadays.
Wtadtstaw Andrzejewski, a baker of Law
rence, Massachusetts, has failed.
Good judges declare that seventy per
cent, of the votes cast in Maine the other
day by Irish-American citizens were cast for

The new divorce law in France has given
sweet relief to one long-suffering couple
named Granville. They were married fifty
years ago. The lady's age was then sixteen,
and fifteen days after the wedding she ob
tained a separation from her husband.
Typhoid fever is epidemic in the vicinity
of Columbia, South Carolina, and the local
physicians have observed the curious fact
that a large majority of cases are located di
rectly in the paths of the disastrous torna

teresting ethnological statement that "the
faces of Europeans, as a rule, are broader
tnan those of Americans" may have been
made from observations at a Democratic mass
meeting after the reception of the news from
the Maine election.
In 1864 Thomas A. Hendricks, now the tail
of the Democratic dog, said he trusted life
still remained in the masses, and that they
had not been sunk so low by the four years
of despotism but that they could rise to crush
out abolitionism and "hurl the smutty old
tyrant at Washington out of political exist
ence." 0Mr. Hendricks is S good man for the
Independents to vote for.
Several hundred "ftl1 frame houses are
now building in Belgium for use at Vivi and
other stations established by Stanley along
tne (jongo. As Stanley possessed no facili
ties for making lumber, his European assis
tants were compelled to live in tents or huts,
and the discomforts of living in that way
added largely to the sick list. The Interna
tional association is building at Boma, nine
ty miles above the mouth of the Congo, a
sanitarium, to which it proposes to send its
invalid agents for treatment. Better facili
ties for preserving health and caring for the
sick are among the innovations to be intro
duced on the Congo.
The prohibitionists of Maine are not as
consistent as they are fanatical. The amend
ment to the State constitution which was
adopted by the voters on Monday provides
that "the manufacture of intoxicating li
quors, not including cider," and their sale
and keeping for sale, shall be forever pro
hibited. Now, it is a notorious fact that
"hard" cider contains a considerably larger
percentage of alcohol than lager beer, and is
far more intoxicating in its effects. Indeed,
the "cider drunkard" is often the most hope
less, as he is in many places the most com
mon, victim of intemperance in New En
Dr. Schweinfurth, who will soon start on
another African tour, is at present busily en
gaged in examining and classifying the rem
nants of wreaths found in the recently dis
covered tombs of Egyptian kings and sent to
Berlin by Professor Maspero, the director of
the museum at Cairo. The various parts are
first softened in hot water, then dried and
placed on paper for examination. When
identified, each flower is put under an air
tight glass frame, to which is attached a label
with the name of the plant and the king in
whose sarcophagus it was found. Forty-six
distinct species have so far been identified,
all corresponding closely to those found in
the present day in Upper Egypt. Dr.
Schweinfurth has already provided the mu
seums of Berlin, Vienna and Leyden with
these specimens of his skill.
City councils are often very queer bodies,
to put it mildly. The aldermen of New York
have just granted, without any consideration
of which the city got a share, a street rail
road franchise for which the city had been
offered $1,000,000. In Chicago the street
railroad companies have been able to secure
from the aldermen of that city the sole leg
islative authority there a gratuitous exten
sion of .their privileges for twenty years,
while a new company, composed of responsi
ble men, stood ready to pay the city $1,000,-
000 for the lapsed privilege, and pay besides
a permanent percentage on the receipts from
the roads. In Kansas City a local politician
has been given, outright, by the city council,
a street railroad privilege for which a respon
sible offer of $100,000 had been made. By
and by it will begin to be thought that city
councils are a failure.
There is some Democratic harmony visible
in the discussion of the tariff question.
Speaker Carlisle's clerk, Mr. Nelson, says that
Mr. Grover Cleveland urged New York
members of Congress to vote for the Morri
son bill, and the New York World says that
Ml. Nelson is "a liar." Mr. Watterson
wants to know what the World means by
"such an insidious attack on the character
of the Democratic nominee." It goes on to
say: There can no doubt in the mind of any
observant man that the election of Grover
Cleveland means the revision of the tariff,
i . . . If he (Grover Cleveland) is not a
Democrat, if he is not in sympathy with the
organization in its great work of reform, he
has no right at the head of the ticket. If he
does not favor tariff reform, the votes going
to him in the West are obtained under false
pretenses. Democratic success means a radi
cal revision of the tariff, or it has no mean
ing at all. . . . The World owes it to
the party in the West to retract its statement
concerning the position of Governor Cleve
land. What are we here for if not to reform

A YOUNG GIR.L'8 PERIL.
Fascinated toy a Snake, WhlcU Wind.
Itself Abont Her Ankle.
From the Huntington (Pa.) Newa .
Miss Elizabeth Carson, aged 20 years, of
Roxbnry, was directed to repair to the black
berry patch, a short distance from the house,
and gather berries for supper. When the
young girl had filled her basket she experi
enced a peculiar sensation in her left ankle,
which appeared as though wound tightly
with a rope. Miss Carson, to her unspeak
able horror, discovered -that a huge black
snake had coiled itself around her ankle, and
was drawing itself up tighter so as to posi
tively stop the circulation in the limb and
cause the most excruciating pain. She had
no sooner set her eyes upon the reptile than
it charmed her, and she was rendered power
less to free herself. How long she remained
in this condition Miss Carson is unable to
say, bnt thinks it must have been over ten
- The snake wound itself so tightly around
her ankle that the muscles of her leg were
drawn out of their natural position, and the
.ircnlation of the blood having been checked,
the contortions of the muscles had the effect
of drawing the eyes of the snake from that
of the victims, thus breaking the charm.
Volition having retarned, Miss Carson pulled
her sun-bonnet from her head and, winding
it around her right hand, caught the snake
by the head, uncoiled it from her ankle and
threw it with such force against a stone fence
near by as to kill it instantly. It was after
ward found to measure five feet three inches
in length. Miss Carson reached home in an
exhausted condition. Medical assistance was
promptly stmmoned, and everything done to
relieve her sufferings, but it is feared that
gangrene will ensue, on account of the with
ered condition of the limb, which is rapidly
falling away. The mucles of the ankle have
been reduced to mere threads, and the cir
culation of the blood was entirely stopped.
AN UNKNOWN SET.
The Chrlstadelphlan- Creed and the
Strange History or Its Followers.
From the Buffalo Express.
Thomas Williams of Waterloo, la., is one
of a small and almost wholly unknown sect
called Christadelphians. His discourse in
this city tended to show the belief of the de
nomination which he represents. His hear
ers were few in number, only a small portion
of them differing in religious creed from the
speaker. Williams stated that the Christa
delphians were the result of a revival brought
about some forty or fifty years ago by a Dr.
Thomas of London. Dr. Thomas had come
to this country, settling in Virginia, where he
was for some time among the Campbellites.
He disagreed in belief with Alexander Camp
bell, and started a new sect by lecturing
through the country and editing a paper
called The Herald of the Kingdom as a relig
ious organ The bible is made the founda
tion of all beliefs of the sect. It holds that
there is one God inhabiting light, unap
proachable, set everywhere present by uni
versal spirit; that Jesus of Nazareth was a
moral man born of Mary by the holy spirit,
and thus constituting the son of God; that
he was put to death as a sin offering, and af
terwards resurrected and take into heaven,
where he is to remain until his second com
ing. It is claimed that man when created was a
living soul with the possibility of being mor
tal or immortal. By sin he became mortal
subject to death; that in death he is abso
lutely unconscious, and therefore depends
upon a resurrection future life; that immor
tality does not exist in man, but will be im
parted to him as a reward after resurrection
and judgment. The wicked, instead of suf
fering everlasting torments, are to be put out
Christ, at his second coming, which is to
be an appearance in the flesh, will rule for
100 years, during which time men will be
born and die as in the present dispensation.
The resurrection and judgment of the whole
world will take place, the wicked being de
stroyed and the righteous receiving immor
tality. Thereafter, throughout all times, the
righteous shall inherit the world in mate
rial bodies with Jesus Christ as a king in the
flesh over all. The denomination have no
clergy ,the meetings being conducted by com
petent lay brethren.
The Christadelphians have existed as a sect
in Buffalo for about eighteen years, during
which time weekly services have been held
amoncr members until recently at their va
rious houses. The members at present num
ber less than a dozen.
The Orlsln or the Useful Little Ar
ticle. From the Dorcas Magazine.
The thimble is a Dutch invention that was
first brought to England in 1695 by one John
Lofting,who began its manufacture at Isling
ton, near London.gaining thereby both honor
and profit. Its name was derived from the
words thumb and bell, being for a long time
called thumble, and only lately thimble. Old
records say that thimbles were first worn on
the thumbs; but we can scarcely perceive
how they could be of much use there. Form
erly they were made of brass and iron only,
but of late years steel, silver, gold, horn,
ivory and even pearl and glass have all been
used for making thimbles. I saw some very
beautiful ones in China that were exquisitaly
carved, of pearl, and bound with gold, and
the end also of gold. These pearl thimbles
are quite as costly and far prettier than those
made entirely of gold. Usually there is a
pearl sheath for the scissors, and a dainty
needle-book of pearl, edged with gold, to ac
company the thimble, and the whole is in
closed in an exquisite little pocket case
shaped like a book and bound iu satin and
A thimble owned by the queen consort of
Siani is shaped like a lotus bud, this being
the royal flower of that country, and almost
everything about the court bearing, in a
greater or less degree, some impress of the
lotus. This thimble is of gold, thickly stud
ded with diamonds that are so arranged as to
form a lady's name and the date of marriage.
It was a bridal gift of the king, who, having
seen the English and American ladies at his
court using thimbles, took this method of
introducing them among his own peo
ple. In Naples, very pretty thimbles, composed
of lava from Mount Vesuvius, are occasion
ally sold, but rather as curiosities than for
rare utility, being, from the extreme bitter
ness of the lava, very easily broken. I have
also heard of thimbles . made of asphaltum,
from the Dead sea, and of one composed of
the fragment of the old elm tree at Cam
bridge, Mass. .under which General Washing
ton stood when taking command of the
United States army in July, 1775; but I do
not suppose that any of these were intended
to be used in sewing. .
In the ordinary manufacture of gold and
silver thimbles, thin plates of the metal are
introduced into the die and then punched in
to shape. But in Paris the French have a
way of their own, quite different from ours,
for making gold thimbles, that are said to
be much more durable than those made in
the usual way. Pieces of very thin sheet
iron are cut into disks of about two inches in
diameter. These, after being heated to red
ness, are struck by means of a punch into a
succession of holes of a gradually increasing
depth to give the proper shape. The thimble
is then trimmed,, polished and indented
around its outer surface with tiny holes. It
is next converted into steel by a process called
cementation, then tempered, scoured, and
brought to a blue color. After all this is
completed a thin sheet of gold is introduced
into the interior and fastened to the steel by
a mandrel, while gold leaf is attached firmly
by pressure to the outside, the edges being
seamed in a small groove made to receive
them. This completes the thimble that will
last for years. The steel used in its con
struction will scarcely wear out in a long life
time, and the gold, if worn away.is easily re
placed. The Elr.t Rothschild.
Letters from Frankforton-the Main.
No trace will be left of the houses in which
Borne, the German writer, and Meyer Ams
chel Rothschild, the founder of that family's
fortunes, first saw the light. Since 1872
only a single row of houses was left, as one
side of the street had been pulled down after
the fall of two houses, when thirty-one per
sons were buried in the ruins. Looking at
the Judengasse in its present aspect one is
struck by the narrowness of the hoHses.
They have three stories facing the street, and
the whole of the facade is studded with small
windows. The gables are pointed, and access
is gained to the houses by three or four steps.
The doors open into a dark passage , at the
other end of which is a worm-eaten wooden
staircase, the boards of which bend as one
puts one's foot upon them. The rooms are
small and low-pitched, and they are inhabit
ed by a few of the poorest and most squalid
families, Jews snd Christians alike. The
room upon the ground floor is used as a shop
by dealers in old clothes, shoemakers and
tinkers. Several of the wealthiest merchants
in Germany at the present time may regard
these hovels as the homes of thier ancestors
who are now replaced by these poor wretches.
There is little that is picturesque about the
Judengasse, and those who have had their
coriosity whetted by the descriptions in "Bae
deker" will have seen nothing comparable to
what one comes across in Italian ghettos,
More curious than the Judengasse is a tavern
hard by where Jewish beggars meet a night
fall. This tavern, kept by a man named
Levy, consists of one long room, the walls of
which are painted yellow. Little drink is
consumed there, but the customers take their
meals there and play cards. Bound a circu

company of a detective, several women were

An African "Charmer'." Victims.
From the Pall Mall Budget.
An African mail steamer some time since
brought an account of a discovery of human
remains in a bush near the town of Lagos,
which to the belief that the victims had been
decoyed there and butchered, as all of the
skeletons appeared to be those of women.
The last steamer which reached Liverpool
from West Africa has brought some further
particulars on the subject. The native,
Adeoshun, who is under arrest charged with
the murders, has for some time past been re
garded as a Ju-Ju medicine man, and had
great influence over the women of Lagos ow
ing to his dealings in "charms" and "fetish."
The first charge against Adeoshun which was
investigated was that of the murder of Mrs.
Selina Cole. This lady disappeared myste
riously some time since, and it was thought
that she had been sold into slavery. Subse
quently her husband became aware that cer
tain property which formerly belonged to his
wife was in possession of the accused. A
search warrant was obtained and the goods
to the value of some 150 were found on the
premises of Adeoshun, all of which was said
to belong to Mrs. Cole. The matter having
been taken up by Inspector Willoughby, of
the Honssa police, a bush near the town was
searched and the search resulted in the dis
covery of first four skeletons and subsequent
ly eight more twelve in all. The remains
of Mrs. Cole were among the number. It is
said that the accused, by the aid of his
charms, was believed by the women of the
colony to be able to bring them wealth.
From Mrs. Cole alone it is asserted that
Adeoshun obtained some 5,000 previous to
her disappearance. It is stated that the pris
oner induced his victims to meet him in a
lonely part of Ikoyi (near where the bodies
were found) and there compel them to kneel
down with their eyes blindfolded. A live
fowl was then put into each hand of the vic
tims and while in this position it is believed
they were despatched by the aid of some
heavy weapon. So great was the excitement
among the people of the place, particularly
among the women, while the prisoners ex
amination was going oq that a force of Hous
sas had to be stationed at the police court to
protect him from the violence of a mob of
about three thousand people.
