What's a Miracle to some people la really only the result of the use of knowledge and common-sense. Many persons suffering from RHEUMATISM and NEURALGIA -nesltate about taking a remedy, fearing It will not help them, and they doubt whether It really did do as much lor others as Is claimed. This is not the way Mr. O. E. Bruner of Urbana, Ohio, did. He writes : " athlophobob is the best I ever tried. I was down in bed bo bad that I bad to be turned on a eheet, and so I got a bottle of Athlopho bos and befran taking it at 9 o'clock, and I was suffering everything a man could suffer. I took four doses of it, and I got out of bed my self and ate my Bupper. and the next morning; I walked out to breakfast without canes. IT IS WORTH ITS WEIGHT IN COLO." Is not a miraculous thintr, but it is the only sure cure for Rlirunintism and neuralgia, and It will cure nst as easily and certainly, as it has thousands of others. If you cannot get Athlophoros of your drug gist, we will send it express paid, on receipt of regular price one dollar per bottle. We prefer that you buy it from your druggist, but if he hasn't it; do not bo persuaded to try something else, but order at once from us, as directed. ATHLOPHOROS GO. 112 WALL ST.

Next Monday the voters of this State will decide the biennial sessions matter. As our readers know, we have advocated the propos ed change for a good many 3'ears. We hope now to see it made. The reasons why the proposed amendment should be adopted are unanswerable. Of the thirty-eight States of the Union all bnt six have biennial sessions. These six are: Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jer sey, New York, Rhode Island and South Carolina. All the other thirty-two have biennial sessions.. Many of them, have had, long experience with the biennial idea, and are amply satisfied with its practical working. No State that has tried the biennial plan has shown any disposition to roturn to the old way. The States which hold annual sessions of their general assemblies contain 9,891,880 people, who ore not, it is believed, any bet ter governed than those of the otaer States. The States holding sessions of their legisla tures once in two years contain 39,479,460 inhabitants, who are not suffering from too little legislation. Annual sessions cost too much. The comptroller's office reports that the cost of the session of 1883 was, including the print ing of documents, bills, resolutions, etc., $140,310.33. This year the figures are not all in, but the expense will be nearly the same. There are less than 125,000 families in the State; therefore each head of a family is compelled to pay something over a dollar a year in taxes for the luxury of an annual legislative session. There is also a large ex tra expense every session, in lighting, heat ing and caring for the eapitol; there is more expense in the preparation and publication of the scores of reports from different State institutions which have to be made for each session; there is a greater tendency to lavish ness In appropriations than there would be with less frequent sessions; and lost, bnt not least, there is the expense of the election it self, to which every town in the State must contribute in greater or less sums. With annual sessions there is altogether too much legislation, and much of it is pret ty poor, one reason for this being the idea that if it does not tarn out well it can be fixed "next year." Biennial sessions would lessen legislation, help the permanency of the law and give the people and the lawyers an opportunity to know what the laws were before they were repealed or modified. The principal objection to the proposed change comes from Hartford. A great many of the 'inhabitants of that thriving town profit by the annual assembling of the legis lators, and they naturally do not want the pleasant and profitable sustom broken up. But we know of no reason why tho voters of the whole State should yote against tiennial sessions in order to make Hartford happy. EDITORIAL NOTES. Our consul general at Berlin reports to the State department that the wages of German workmen have advanced measurably under the revised and protective tariff. He also says that fewer persons are without employ ment than before, while the discontent which filled the country with menaces under the blessings of free trade is disappearing. On every hand the situation in Germany is im proving. The departure of a new shipload of colored emigrants from New York for Liberia again calls attention to that colony. Mr. Cop pinger, the consul general of Liberia at Washington and secretary of the African Colonization society, states that the society has thousands of applications from people who wish to be taken to Monrovia, and that, if it had means to supply passage, half a mil lion of colored people would leave the United States at once. But accounts recently re ceived of the condition of affairs "in Liberia indicate that it is just as well that the half a million cannot go. Some years ago travelers in Dolmatia no ticed large tracts of land covered by a wild flower, near which not a sign of insect life was visible. The bloom was the pyre thrum, whose odor deals death to the lower forms of life, and whose powdered leaves form the basis of "insect powders." The seed of this flower was distributed in the United States, and a Dalmatian haseen growing it with great success in Stockton, Cal. Prof. Snow recently read an article on the subject before the KVww State Board of Agriculture, and it seems likely from the report that an indus try of importance will arise from the Dalma tian's experiment. More than, forty years ago Horace Greeley, one of the founders of the Republican party, wrote these strong words: Enlightened pro tection is emphatically the hope and stay of the toiling millions over the whole face of the world. Wherever a hammer is ; lifted, a plow held, a shuttle thrown, over the globe, there is one whose direct interest it is that labor should be efficiently protected not merely in his own bnt all countries, and that the excesive and fatal competition of capital with capital, sinew with anew, ' privation with privation, to excel in . cheapness of pro duction that is, cheapness in money should be checked and bounded. Let labor there fore with one mighty voice demand adequate, stable protection, and a wider, deeper pros perity will soon irradiate the land, carrying independence, comfort and joy to the dwel ling alike of the fanner and artisan in every section of the country. When M. Renan recently visited his birth place in Brittany he was desirous of sleep ing in the very house in which he was born. He found it occupied by several families, all devoted children of the Church, who were horror-stricken at thought of harboring the great infidel. But at last one man, more tolerant than the others, relented, and al lowed the Academician to occupy his room ior a single mgnt. f or this aet he was so bitterly assailed by his neighbors that he was compelled to publish a justification of his course. In that document he ingeniously argued that although he had indeed lent the room to M. Renan, yet he had on a previous occasion lent it to a distinguished defender of orthodoxy, whose good influence, he trusted, might haunt the slumbers of the in fidel. Moreover, was it not worth trying whether the revival of youthful memories by old-time surroundings might not reawaken also in the heretic his early faith? And so the pious indignation of the good people of Tre guier was mollified, and the teacup tempest throbbed no more. A cose of interest to that rapidly growine; class the bicyclers was adjudicated, the other day in Washington. Charles McKnabb, em ployed in the bureau of engraving and print ing, got through work on a Friday afternoon and started for home on his wheel. He was riding up Fifteenth street at a moderate rate of speed, ringing his bell, when at a street crossing he suddenly found himself in the thick of a crowd and tho machine struck a Professor Cammack in the leg. He dis mounted at once and helped carry the pro fessor, who had fainted, into a drug store. The fainting was caused by nervous shock, the only bodily damage sustained by the pro fessor being bruises on the ankle. The judge held that, while the running into the profes sor was clearly an accident, McKnabb had been guilty of negligence. "A bicycle," he said, "is an unmanageable vehicle, especially in a crowd. It cannot be navigated like a horse, and nobody would think of it until it was upon them. The proper thing would have been to get off the vehicle and wait until the crowd had passed." Accordingly his honor imposed a fine of one dollar upon McKnabb, by way of admonition and warn ing to the other wheelmen of Washington. Captain W. L. Ellsworth, the presidential candidate of the American Political Alliance, presents the curious anomaly of a candi date who is not in the directory. He once had lodgings over a store on Arch street, Philadelphia, but his letters never came there, and few ever knew his name. But in order to gratify public curiosity Captain Ellsworth has prepared a biography of him self, to be used for campaiirn purposes. In this he describes his origin and rise to dis tinct oil. He is a native of Connecticut, born November 15, 1837. He early became inter ested in steamboat enterprises on the Missis sippi. He was, under Pierce, Consul at Cy- i prus, Turkey. He went into the war as cap tain in a New York regiment. He was nomi nated for Congress in the third New York district in 1862, but withdrew before elec tion. Captain Ellsworth is a civil engineer and inventor. In politics he has been in sympathy with the stalwart wing of the Re publican party. As described by the officials at thehiladelphia postoflSce, Captain Ells worth is a quick, odd-looking man, with a restless look, who rushes in and out frequent ly to look at his box, and wears a long linen ulster and is always chewing on the end of a cigar.

The worst pun on record is reported at this office as coming from an attorney of this city. A man had been arrested for stealing and the attorney was asked about it. "What is he, charged with?' was his first inquiry. "Steal ing money, "-was the reply. "How much?" "Ten cents." "Oh, is that it? Well, he ought to be sent to the penny-ten-tiary." Merchant Traveler.

In Vienna Tne Fifty-Fourth Birth' bt or the Emperor An Interesting Deleoratlon "Lot' or Fan Ameri can Enterprise An Illumination , Off for Llnx-Vp the Beautiful JHad- dr Danube Llnz-To Salzburg. Salzburg, Austria, Sept. 1 To the Editor of the Journal and Courier: The eighteenth day of August was the fifty-fourth birthday of His Majesty Franz- Joseph I, Emperor of Austria, King of Hun gary, Bohemia, etc. In view of this fact I modified my plans and remained in Vienna longer than I had originally intended, think ing thus to add to my 'round the world ex perience a royal pageant ic Austria. I wai disappointed in my expectations, but per haps some of the other things which I did see are worthy of mention. The first exercise of the day was a military review held in Schmeltplatz at five o'clock in the morning. I do not think I am sacrificing my reputation as an indefatigable tourist when I say that I did not get out to witness that demonstration. Had the Emperor been there I should certainly have been on hand. But he was off at Iselil or Bruek on the Leitha, or some other place in the empire, dodging about hither and thither without giving any notice of his intentions in advance a proceeding which I feel justified in con struing as a personal affront. His Majesty is an early riser, and it is said that very fre quently when he is here he conducts the re views at five o clock a. m. The Crown Prince Rudolph was at Bruek, where he was the recipient of quite an ovation at the hands of some of the local societies. He v obliged to appear on the balcony of his lodg ing-place in answer to the applause, and thereupon committed himself to the follow ing rash speech: I thank you very many times. The vereins have done themselves proud. I thank you again it's all so very nice." I am not on intimate tevms with the Crown Prince, and perhaps there is better material than this in him waiting for some supreme exigency to develop it; It may at least be said that the speech was an exhaus tive one as regards the speaker if not the subject under consideration. Yet you can not shake the implicit confidence of these people in the inspiration of their royalty. At eleven o'clock I swarmed over to St. Stephen's, where there was to be a high mass in honor or the anniversary. Several battal ions of infantry were drawn up about the three entrances, and extended in double rows down the cathedral. The customary sights were to De witnessed about the great church. gorgeously-robed priests going through their endless religious gymnastics, scores of peo ple bowing and mumbling before images un til the candle at their side which they had purchased should burn out, small boys swinging censers, novices arranging the pul pit furniture, etc. There were also signs that some event out of the usual routine was at hand. The pews were covered with red cloths; a thousand candles and gas jets were burning, despite the fact that it was broad daylight. The full cathedral chime was sending abroad its call to prayer. The vari ous ministers of State, military officers and municipal dignitaries were alighting from their splendid carriages and marching up to the chancel, arrayed in all the panoply of their respective offices, borne wore high hats with great white plumes. Others had black plumes, still others green. Many were at tired according to the English fashions of the Elizabethan age, with knee breeches, im maculate stockings and powdered hair. Some had boots that reached up almost to their arm-pits. Some had dress Coats loaded with gilt braid. One functionary, equipped with a fur-trimmed silk cloak, would have made an excellent Richard III if he had only re moved eight or ten of the excessive badges which decorated him and adopted a halting gait. The services were of the characteristic Catholic order. The great organ was not used, but another of respectable tone and power nearer the chancel did service, assisted by a full orchestra, which was provided with a gallery fitted up, for all the world, just ' like an orchestra-place in a theatre. A choir of small boys made first-class music, and an army of magnificently dressed priests and novices furnished the oratory and chanting. The chief exercise of the day was a Kai serfest in the Prater. This Kaiserfest used to be a great celebration, but latterly it has been ruined by rain two or three times, so that the popular enthusiasm over it has mod erated. This year the fest was planned and carried out on a rather moderate scale by the proprietors of restaurants and places of amusement in the Prater. Each man chipped in a few florins to advertise the affair and pay for decorations. The Prater is a public .park of over four thousand acres, formerly a royal hunting lodge, which is shaped like a fan, with three avenues radiating from the place where the handle should be to serve as fan-ribs. It was in this great enclosure that the Universal exhibition of 1873 took place, and the Rotunda is still standing. The right hand section of this fan-park is reserved for the wealthy and those whose tastes are some what elevated. The lower parts of the other two sections are fitted up with reference to the less educated tastes of the great mass of Austrian humanity. To the Prater I wended my way at three o'clock, the hour announced for the begin ning of the Fest. The main avenues, lined with qnadruple rows of noble chestnuts, were gay with thousands of Chinese lanterns, which were to be lit in the evening. A great multitude of people, filling all the spacious walks, and even the streets also, flocked to ward the numerous attractions of the Prater. Here were panoramas, little theaters, aquari ums, circuses, wax figure exhibits and vari ous side shows of greater or less importance. The prices of admission were suspiciously low, usually ten kreuzers X&ye cents), and frequently only half that sum. There were gigantic swings that would fairly take your breath away when you looked at the other people manipulating them. There were huge teeters adapted to tickle the fancy of the youngsters. A species of windmill worked by hand, with cars attached to the paddles, which would retain an upright position all the time, was very popular. So also was a circle of balloons, into whieh you climbed by stairs in order to enjoy the elevated mo tion. Devices for making you as dizzy as possible, especially by means of a motion that was more properly celestial than terres trial, seemed to be the great desideratum. The merry-go-rounds were a great feature. Thero were a score of different kinds, inclu ding ordinary horses and carriages, swans, sleighs, street-ears, fully equipped railroad trains with outside projecting wheels which actually did run on a stationary rail, and steamboats. The steamboats were so bal anced on a pivot as to produce in addition to the circular motion a rocking motion akin to that experienced by a real ship at sea; so that the rider enjoyed the exhilarating sensation of seasickness on land if they stayed in long enough. I noticed, some of these steamers bearing such goodly names as Philadelphia, New York and America. Everybody seemed bewitched to ride in these merry-go-rounds, even adults. I saw plenty of women sitting astride of mock roosters or swans, enjoying an artificial canter; while many a young rus tic and his best girl beamed at each other in supreme joy, as they mutually held on to their seats in a tempest-tossed ship, his arm having unconsciously passed in the general vicinity of her waist while searching for something to grip. Though there were scores of these merry-go-rounds, all more or less elaborate, there actually did not seem to be enough to meet the demand. The crowd surged hither and thither; now stopping to survey a specially artistic display of decorations; now stopping to gaze at some harlequin who sought to inveigle them into his little show. Many were eager to test their lifting abilities on the machines provi ded for that purpose, while more sought to display their skill in the shooting galleries. These galleries were only second to the merry-go-rounds in popular favor. The targets were a forest of images constructed automat ically, so that a successful shot set certain machinery in operation. You could help a dog to catch a rabbit, a man to beat a drum, a dentist to pull a tooth, a boy to play nine pins, a soldier to blow a horn, or a bell-ringer to tinkle a miniature cathedral chime. In fact, at One of the galleries you could set a whole automatic battle into operation if you were skillful enough. The. array of targets was always made enticingly novel and attrac tive. , If anyone ever said that they water the streets with beer in Vienna, I think it was the utterance of a wicked canard. Never theless, from what I have seen I think I am justified in saying that it is not against the law here to take a glass of lager occasionally. I really wonder how much there was con sumed at this Fest. Groups were scattered here and there, alternately sipping the foam ing beakers before them and nibbling at hunks of cheese. The cheese which was most popular needs no encomium, since it seemed to be old and strong enough to speak for itself. The very poorest people ate their lunch on the grass. Every place of amusement that made any pretensions was provided with a hand organ of unparalleled noise-producing capacity. The blare of these instruments, often in dis cordant union, was simply deafening. There were several Punch and Judy shows in pan tomime merely. One of these was supplied with a remarkable wealth of scenery, cos tumes, effigies and appointments for various unusual acts. In one place was a real rail way in the shape of a circle not over one hundred yards in diameter, which was worked on a simple plan. The train started from an elevation of five or six feet, attained a rapid speed which carried it around the circle and back to the point of elevation, where men would be at the foot waiting to push it up to the top. Doubtless many peo ple availed themselves of this diversion who regard railway riding as a bore. Among the decorations appeared the likenesses of the emperor and empress everywhere, with in scriptions setting forth that His Majesty came to the throne in 1848, was born in 1830, and was a first-class sort of a monarch. The pictures of the empress were not at all flat tering to her. The usual collection of se ductive lotteries solicited the spare pennies of the downright fools who were present anxious to be gulled. In addition to the variety of things always pn sale in the Prater, there were cheap nickel plated medallions intended as souvenirs of this particular occasion, and glass reliefs of the imperial heads. Other sales were being effected of such a character as always excite American contempt. Boys were hawking programmes around the premises at a few kreuzers each coarse, ugly handbills, such as we would be ashamed to give away in our third-rate cities. People were also gathered about the fountains buying drinks of water. Yes, it is true that some people do drink wa ter in Vienna. And it is a matter of surprise to me that such matchless water does not drive the lager out of the market. The wa ter is free, but never a drinking vessel is pro vided. Accordingly the individuals who want to profit by the investment of the smallest possible amount of capital procuie a few cups and take up their positions by the fountains. This is characteristically Euro pean. Everything is under lock and key. To be sure the prices asked are very small, but that is only an aggravating feature to an American. The great factor in bringing about this difference between Europe and America appears to me to be the superior enterprise of the new world. Competition crushes out such paltry, petty practices among us. In "effete Europe" the atmos phere is pervaded with a conservative, ul- tra-cantious spirit which keeps each coun try where it has been for centuries. This applies not only to the great streams of second and third-class effort, but even to the largest so-called European ventures. If some great enterprise is projected here it seems to be regarded as a matter of neces sity that it shall receive a sop from the government. So it happens that even when you attend a naiserrest in Vienna you must buy your own programmes ana arcnK- ing water. Uah! Give us tne Dngnt en terprise and restless, venturesome energy that prevail west of the Atlantic, whatever the dangers that attend them. In the evening the Prater was illumina ted and the Fest really began. Ihe pro gramme stated that tnirty inousonu gas flames were used in this illumination. I did not count them to see, but will swear that there were a good many. There were also a good many illuminated stars and other designs, for which tumblers of grease were used. There was lager and dancing, and lager and promenading, and singing and occasionally lager. After a grand Fest concert (it said it was grand on the pro gramme) the various brass bands I think there were thirty rormea in line, every body bought a Chinese lantern, and a gen eral illuminated procession was formed, which continued to parade the Prater for some time. The programme also said that there would be a balloon ascension, but I could not find it. I fear the programme lied. I have an idea that the Ananiases who got up the Fest resorted to this adver tisement as a playful ruse with which to attract a crowd. The following morning found me aboard little steamer in the Danube canal at half-past six o'clock bound for Linz. The regular Danube steamers cannot enter this canal, so the company provides a small steamer to ply from the landing to the larger steamer in the river proper. In one hour we were put on board the steam er "Crown Prince Kudolph, a good respect able side-wheel steamer, bound up the Dan ube. Up the Danube is a very different thing from down the Danube. So swift is the current that ifr takes the same boat over twice as long to ascend as it does to descend, and even when the steamer stops at a land ing en route she often has to keep her wheels paddling the water vigorously. My taste or Danube scenery Detween Turn bevenn and Orsova, along the Roumanian-Hungarian frontier, (a link seldom seen by trave'iei-s,bnt one of the prettiest in the whole course of the river) had made me hungry for more. Not withstanding that the trip would consume over seventeen hours, I therefore chose it. For a tew hours there was not much to re ward my pains. The Danube seems to be muddy from Passan clear to Galatz unutter ably muddy most of the way. The poet who sings of the blue Danube is a prevaricating skulker. He dare not show his face in Europe. The lack of maritime industry is also a little discouraging to the tourist at first,there being only two or three steamers met in the course of a day's ride. The river, though preceptibly narrower than when I had left it at Buda Pest, was still dotted with low fiat islands, covered with a rank growth of shrubbery. We paused at several land ings and passed under one large railroad bridge by means of lowering the funnel, arriv ing at the considerable town of Stein (with Krems adjoining) a little after noon. The scenery now began to improve, and during the rest or the day was a'j tnat x eouia ssk. The hills crowded the river more closely and grew more precipitous, until we found our selves in the midst of a narrow gorge; now chisseled out of the rock in nature's most savage mood, and now brilliantly green with soft thick grass or dense young trees. On the right we passed Durnstein,where Richatd Coeur de Lion was kept a prisoner for fifteen months m 1 lua-ua oy xrake leopoia v i, and where the faithful Blondel is reputed to have discovered his lost master. It was a picturesque-looking place, with old fortification walls running up tho steep rocky hill. A church stood on a rock close by the water's edge, and as our steamer glided along some fifteen feet -away, the deep toned abbey oeii pealed solemnly forth. The sound was start lingly distinct as if directly over our heads. We now passed frequent ruius, castles, monasteries, and sleepy villages, nestling at the very edge of tho water. The abbeys were enormous in size and usually palatial in appointments, being frequently at the summit of lofty picturesque hills. I could but wonder what these great institutions are for. It is said that they are supplied with valuable collections of minerals and antiqui ties, historical manuscripts, grand pipe or gans, and libraries of from 30,000 to 100,000 volumes. But that does not answer the question. Of what utility are these large establishments? The might of Popery in this country is attested by the crucifixes, with life size statues of Christ clinging thereto, that line the roads, mark the bridges and cover the hilltops. Even the royal palace in Vienna contains its pictures of the Pope. The rapid current of the river was utilized frequently on either side by means of huge wheels extended from the shore to a moored floater near the shore. Bands passed around the axle, and were then made to operate the machinery in adjacent mills. The boat stopped every three or four miles to let off or take on passengers. At each such station about two' beer kegs for every inhabitant in the town were let off or taken on. There's no denying it, the people do moisten their gastronomical apparatus with lager occasionally. Even on board the steamer the restaurant system prevailed. As in the case of the hotels, I found that the terms did not include board and bed! But as the prices were extremely low, in view of railway competition.I hod not the heart to find fault. One gets hardened to the ' Board and lodging extra" accommodations m Europe. About dusk I was startled by the succes sive reports of two cannon, one on the port side of the ship and the other to starboard. On investigation, I found that we were near ing the "Greiner Schwall," (surging waters) and this was the customary signal for r the right of way up stream. I noticed a signal tower on the north bank, and presume the navigation is conducted by telegraph here. For a distance of nearly a thousand feet' the channel was only thirty to fifty feet wide, while the waters rushednd surged tumul tously. The ascent of these rapids was most hazardous until 1853, when the rocks were blasted away. Great bolders still pro ject in a menacing manner from the banks, and not a few former strongholds of robbers are pointed out among the caves and ruins. The navigation of such a swift crooked river is to my mind perilous enough after dark without any rocks added to complicate math ters. It was intensely dark, and save for the twinkling of an occasional light on the banks, I could not define any landmarks whatever. I suppose the steering is a simple matter to the keen-eyed, practiced pilot, but I feel safer when on the high seas. I was heartily glad when at one o'clock in the morning the whirlpools and rocks were safely passed, and we had moored alongside of a dock in the young city of Linz: But here a problem scarcely less grave presented itself for solution. There was not a carriage anywhere to be had at that late hour, and the depot was over half a mile distant. There were half a dozen other people in the same fix, and after an. hour's waiting ' we finally patched up a solution of tho -difficulty. An attache of the docks was found, who would pilot us to tho depot, wheeling our baggage in a handcart. So we formed a midnight procession and followed in his walks. Linz is the capital of Upper Austria. It boasts a population of 45,000 people and a few rather imposing buildings. We had occasion to admire the ample il lumination by gas, an especially friendly feature as we trudged along through the streets. It was indeed a wretched night, and I was most thankful when the train for Salsburg rolled into the depot at 4:16 a. m. The ride from Linz here was almost a per fect antidote for the weariness of the night. The country was gloriously beautiful. I needed no maps to tell me tiin I was ap proaching Switzerland. The hills that took such diverse fantastic forms, as I surveyed them from different standpoints, according to the windings of the road, were doubly emerald by reason of a pouring rain. Gleam ing lakelets, castle ruins, foaming mountain torrents and romantic gorges lent their united charm to the picture. Salsburg it self is almost as beautifully situated as Nikko in Japan; and more I cannot say. I do not wonder that the melodies of nature here should have given inspiration to a Mozart. One might spend a whole summer here with profit, and not begin to exhaust the myriads of excursions which are possible to the neigh boring lakes and mountain passes. Tourists are just beginning to find this out, and there are quite a number of Americans here now. Emile.

The following from Rev. Dr. E. F. Crane of Dunkirk, N. Y., is very sat isfactory evidence of the value of this medicine. Look it over. "I have never seen a medicine more perfectly adapted to its various applications than Thomas1 Eclectric Oil. I was for many years a sufferer from Quinsy; Thomas'' Eclectric Oil cured me. My wife and child had diphtheria; Thomas' Eclectric Oil cured them; and if taken in time will cure seven times out of ten. I am confident it is a euro for the most obstinate cold or cough, and if taken into the head, by the nostrils, two or three times a week, will relieve the most offensive case of catarrh ; and not withstanding the delicate nature of the mucus membrane of the nasal organs, can be taken up with perfect impunity. For deafness and earache it has done wonders, to my certain knowledge. It is the only medicine dubbed patent that I have ever felt like recommending, and I am anxious to see it in every p.ace, for I tell you I would not be with out it in the house for any consideration. It also operates in Asthma as a specific, and whenever it is used it becomes indispensable to household safety.
