5 SOIiO BY DRUGGISTS.
A happ7 (ftirprise it was to Mr. A. E.
Norton, of Bristol, Conn., wnen Atbxophobos
put Mm on his feet, and sent him cheerfully
about his business. Let Urn tell his own story :
"About three weeks ago I was taken
wita a severe crick in the back. For four days
X was unable to turn in bed without help, and
when lifted npoonld not stand on my feet I was
induced to try At&xophobos, after all the usual
remedies failed. In 30 minntes after taking the
first doss I could bear my weight upon my feet.
In two days I was able to get about and attend
to business. In two other cases which have
come to my knowledge its use has been attended
with the same results."
A poor man is Philadelphia had to bor
row a dollar to hoy a bottle oC Atbxofhokos.
On account ot his poverty his name shall remain
a secret. He had suffered terribly from Rheu
matism. He gratefully writes:
I took my first dose Tuesday afternoon,
and on Wednesday, after but seven doses, I had
not a sharp or severe ache left. Then I reduced
the dose one-half and took the remainder off the
bottle. I was able to be steady at work tUl Sat-
urday.when? took a severe cold and was un
able to use my left hand. I purchased another
bottle and by bed-thne I found relief. The
medicine is all you claim for it"
Investigate Atetlophohos all you pleaset
Find all the fault yon choose with it ! and
yet the fact remains, that it is doing what
no other medicine ever could do for Rheu
matism and Neuralgia.
If you cannot get Athiofhoros of your drug
gist, we will send It express paid, on receipt of
reg-ular price one dollar per bottle. We prefer
that you buy It from your druggist, but tt he.
haant It, do not be persuaded to try something
else, but order at once from us aa directed.

THE ST. JOHN FOLLT.
The St. John folly is getting a good many
hard knocks nowadays. Many prominent
and sensible prohibitionists see very plainly
thnt the cause which they have so much at
heart is not likely to gain anything by it, and
may lose a great deal. Therefore they are
doing what they can to restrain prohibition
ists from, helping their worst enemies the
Democrats into power.
One of the latest to come ont against the
St. John movement is the Rev. J. E. C. Saw
yer, of the Troy Methodist conference, and a
prominent and consistent advocate of tem
perance reform, Tt - having Iieen reported
that he had been offered a considerable sum
of money by an agent of the Democratic
State committee to help the St. John move
ment, the reverend gentleman takes occasion
to say that the report is not correct; but he
adds, "that the Democratic managers are
encouraging the St. John movement, for the
sake of the damage they hope it may do the
Republican party, we all know," and "that
they, would give money for the purpose I
cannot doubt." He considers the third part;.
in this campaign simply a tender to the
Democratic party.' "Every vote' for that
party is virtually a vote for Grover Cleve
land, who not only stands on an anti-prohibition
platform, but also chose to make his
commendation of that feature of the plat
form of the Democratic party the only sig
nificant part of his letter of acceptance.
From the opening of the campaign I have
been compelled by my convictions as a radi
cal and lifelong temperance man- to frankly
oppose the third party movement as injudi"
cious, reckless, inconsistent and calculated
to do much harm to the temperance cause."
These are plain words and well worth heed'
ing by the really sincere friends of prohibi
tion. It is astonishing that the St. John
movement should have received such sup
port as it has. Those who vote the prohibi
tion ticket this year will simply be' serving
as assistant Democrats. "
A pretty line legal point has been decided
in Charlesfon, South Carolina. A colored
man was before the police court for keeping
an unlicensed dog and put in a plea that the
dog was not a dog, but a puppy. The judge
discharged him, basing his decision on his
knowledge as a dog fancier that a puppy is a
puppy and does not become a dog till it is a
They have some remarkable thieves in
Philadelphia. One of them not long ago
stole the zinc roof off the almshouse. Now
it has just leaked out that four brass cannon,
relics of the rebellion, weighing over 900
pounds apiece, were stolen over a year ago
from the cellar of the Second Regiment ar
mory in Philadelphia. They were so heavy
that a derrick must have been used to lift
them from the cellar. By and by somebody
will be stealing the city hall .if the police are
not more careful.
The cultivation of flax is becoming an im
portant feature of agriculture in the North
west. It is only within recent years that the
mills for the manufacture of linseed oil in
this country could secure the necessary raw
material except by importation, bnt last
year's yield in the United States aggregated
about 7,000,000 bushels, and the total this
year promises to reach from 8,000,000 to
9,000,000 bushels, fully one-half of which is
raised in Minnesota and Dakota. The plant
produces on-the average as many bushels to
the acre as wheat, and as the price ranges
from $1 to $1.15 per bushel the crop is a de
cidedly profitable one. As an element in
that diversification of our agriculture which
is so desirable, the growing attention that is
paid to flax culture is a healthy sign.
The Civil Service commissioners of Massa
chusetts have made considerable progress in
their work during the past month. In the
latter part of August a circular was issued to
the heads of the several State departments
and the mayors of cities asking for certain
information in regard to the offices and em
ployments to which the provisions of the
Civil Service act apply.. Most of the officers
to whom the circular was addressed have-fur.
nished the desired information; a partial
classification of the service has been made
and the rules are now being drafted. The
commissioners will probably be able to sub
mit their work for the approval of the gov
ernor and council by the middle of Novem
ber. After the rules are approved they must
be advertised at least two months before they
go into operation; so that there are not like
ly to be any examinations for some time to
Dr. Emil Holub, whose large collections in
the natural history and ethnography ot Af-
rica have enriched the museums of Austria,
, is now carrying ont a very large scheme of
exploration. He left Cape Colony recently;
intending to cross the country from south to
north." He expects to be gone three years.
He hopes to cross the neater parting between
the Congo and Zambesi rivers, a region of
which little is known, to trace the sources of
theJCOngo river in the country that Living
stone alone has" visited, to solve the problem
of the destination of the river Welle, in
which, however, Ih Junker may anticipate
hinvand to pnsh north either through Dar-
fur or Wadai. In 1872 Dr. Holub vainly ap
plied to several scientific bodies to send him i
to Africa. He finally started on his own ac
count, reached Port Elizabeth with $15 in
his pocket, practised medicine in the dia- ,
mond fields, and spent his earnings and two

The Independents do not think as highly
of Mr. Theodore Roosevelt as they did when
tney were expecting him to join them. At a
Republican meeting in Maiden, Massachu
setts, the other evening, Mr. Roosevelt told
wEy he was not an Independent. Mr.
Blaine, he said, was not his choice. He
tried to prevent his nomination. But Mr.
Blaine was the choice of the bone and sinew
of the Republican party, Abraham Lincoln's
"plain people;" he was fairly and honorably
nominated; "I, for one," said Roosevelt, "am
quite content to abide by the decision of the
plain people." . Later iu his speech the New
York reformer told the Massachusetts folks
what he knew about Mr. Grover Cleveland.
His own public career had been short, he
l-eaid, but Mr. Grover Cleveland's had been
still shorter and circumstances had thrown
them a good deal together. Mr. Grover
Cleveland was not a demagogue, but he was
a Democratic politician. He had signed
some of the reform bills laid before him
"those that did not bear too harshly on the
Democratic organizations." He had not
signed the bill that would have ousted Mr.
Hubert O. Thompson. "There has been
nothing whatever in his past career," said
Mr. Roosevelt, "to warrant its in saying that
he will be able to resist the pressure of his
party that he will have the power to resist
the almost incalculable pressure that will be
brought to bear upon him if he is elected."

The serials by Miss Tincker and the

poems, and short papers and sketches, make
np a number of varied interest and attrac

the November number of the Popular Science
Monthly is a paper by S. W. Powell, entitled
Drowning the Torrent in Vegetation."
Apropos of the disastrous floods of 1883-84 in
the Ohio river, the writer urges the impor
tance of forest preservation on the steep hill
sides in the areas drained by streams. He
shows what the experience of other countries
teaches with regard to the treatment of for
ests, giving in particular an account of the
ravages of floods in the south of France,
their origin and the success of efforts to tame
those torrents . ty reforesting the Dasins

Edward Everett Hale in the November
number of the North American Review makes
a plea for "Half-Time in Schools" which
ought to receive serious consideration. Prof.
Gilliam discusses "The African Problem."
The facts that he gives as to the increase of
the negroes in the United States, their pecul
iar situation and disposition, and the problem
they will force upon us in the near future
call for the gravest consideration. The other
articles in this number are: "Woman as a

number, are largely from photographs made
during the war, or from recent sketches of
the battle held, and are by Fenn, Taber,
Thulstrup, Redwood and others. The first
part of the "Recollections of a Private" be
gins with the enlistment-of the soldier, and
continues the description of his life down to
and including Bull Run, thns supplementing
Uen. Beauregard's account of that battle.

A Cruel Driver.
To the Editor of the Journal and Courier:
This morning I witnessed a piece of what,
seemed great and unnecessary cruelty to a
balky horse which was attached to a grocer's
or butcher's wagon and was driven by a
young, red-faced fellow, who refused to give
the owner's name to those who asked for it.
He tied pieces of twine to the horse's legs
and then tightened the cords with a stick,
which undoubtedly gave the poor creature
great pain, and he also filled its ears and
mouth with gravel. There was no name or
number on the team. Who are the proper
officers to complain to and where are they to
be found? Some who saw the affair thought
the team camfrom the City market. It was
going up Chapel above Howe street. Will
you not publish this in your paper? Perhaps
it will assist in causing the man's punish
ment. A Lady Who Witnessed the Affair.
A Story of English Ignorance.
From the London Spectator.
' To Americans who all resent the stigma
of miscegenation, and know its incompati
bility wtth the pride Creoles take in their
race, this is rather startling. English mis
takes concerning class distinctions in Ameri
ca are often egregious. Just such a mistake
caused to be enacted a little bit of comedy in
an English castle some years ago, wherein
three well-born American maidens and the
daughters of their English host were the
chief actors. The American girls were
cousins. One was Ellen Lewis Herndon, the
late wife of President Arthur; another, Ellen.
Mercer Herndon (by their middle names they
were always distinguished), now . Mrs. Seth
French of New York, and the third was
Nannie Maury, daughter of Capt. Matthew
Maury, the scientist. The two accompanied
Capt. Maury as far as England, where they
were to remain while he went on to attend a
reunion of savants in Berlin, the young ladies,
all school-girls ,in their younger teens, being
permitted to accept an invitation to visit
the home of a titled Englishman, who had
often been entertained when at Washington
by Capt. Maury. One day, after luncheon,
the girls English and American, being all
left to their own desires, began conversation
about life in America. Just then Miss Maury,
who was a dark brunette with crisp black
locks, closely curled about the face, left the
room, and one of the English girls took oc
casion to ask her cousins with all the inno
cence of ignorance a very startling question:
"Is your cousin's mother a negress?" If one
of the turrets of the English castle had fallen
at their feet the two American girls could
not have been more astonished and discon
certed. With the southern blood tingling in
their vans and surging in their cheeks, they
asked with freezing dignity. "What do you
mean?" The English girl with all her sang
froid quietly replied: "From Miss Maury's
dark complexion and eyes and black curly
hair, we supposed she was a Creole, knowing
that you are from the Southern States, and
aa we know her father is not a negro, we
thought her mother must be." "Her mother
is sister to our father," cried the Herndon
cousins at once, "and you insult us all." and
the indignant girls hurried away to their
andbe?an Tracking their trunks to
leave, f ef using to listen to the apologies or
regrets of the English maidens, who hastened
with the story of their faux pas to the lord
of the manor. His promot explanation had
the effect of soothing his guests' ire and har
mony was restored. The naivete of the
question only goes to show, what I before re
marked upon, the. absence of a prejudice
against the negro in Europe which is every
where seen in this country.

Given Up To Die.
Buffalo. N. Y.,'Oct. 2, 1883.
I had for 2 years been troubled with terrible sick
headaches and a horrible cough. My skin turned to
a yellowish hue. I suffered the most excruciating
pain of the bowels; small, dry, irritating humors
broke out over my face; my stomach would not re
tain the simplest food ; vomited great quantities of
offensive, greenish mucus.
The Doctor Said I Could Not Live.
JIn April I commenced taking Burdock Blood Bit
ters, and in July was cured by this medicine alone.
The stomach and bowels seemed the first acted up-
on, after which I rapidly improved. My appetite
returned, the terrible sick headache left me, the
hacking cough gradually abated, and from the first
bottle I could sleep well at night.
I do not think there is a case of sick headache
Burdock's Blood Bitters will not cure, (they cured
my sister, Mrs. Thos. J. Halej', of this city). Those
who saw me six months ago consider my recovery
a miracle. I was no less astonished, and shall le
