Many years ago, while engaged in the genera practice of medicine I saw the dark and apparently hopeless condition of nearly every sufferer from CHRONIC DISEASES, as well as the utter futility of the methods of relief (relief simply and not cure) employed by tho best in the medical f rater nity, and I speedily determined my course of ac tion and wedded my professional life to the most careful analysis and intimate knowledge of the pe culiarities of this class of ailments, bending also my energies to find some NEW Method of Treatment Which would be alike satisfactory to my patients and myself. Not the work of a day, or a month, or a year, but after MANY years of persistent application, I have by actual proof and test fixed and determined a line of treatment which for positive certainty of results borders on the marvelous and has aptly been termed A PRICELESS DISCOVERY. And I can show, prove and demonstrate to any reasonable, sensible, intelligent person that the most difficult long-standing and obscure CHRON IC DISEASES will yield as if by magic to my New Rational., Scientific Treatment, and I have no hesitancy in saying that in the large majority of such cases I can not only give Relief, but can Cure them. My treatment, touching the foundation and removing absolutely the cause of disturbance, rap idly builds anew, invigorates with healthy growth and recreates the original design. DR. H. N.

Wright does -not usual ly pat his foot in it when he opens his month, bnt in his address before the Social Science association at Saratoga he did not display great wisdom. He vigorously argued that the public schools should add to their cur riculnm courses of instruction in social sci ence. He would have pupils educated by the present schools in the problems of finance and coinage, the nature and function of money, the land and labor problems, and. in fact, all that relates to the history, prog ress and present state of society. This idea would probably please some "ed ucators" who seem to think that the more the number of studies is increased in the common schools the better for all concerned. But, as the Providence Journal points out, "apart from the standing objection to all in crease of school studies, that our scholars are already overburdened with a multiplicity of subjects that too often necessitates diluted knowledge rather than helpful mental train ing, the character of the problems with which social science deals is clearly nnadapted to profitable school study. These problems are of an intricacy and delicacy that severely tax even the best trained and most mature minds. To thrust them upon the nnripe mentality of children is only to weaken and stunt their intellectual growth." The Journal makes a suggestion which is much more sensible and practical than Colonel Wright's social sci ence idea. It says: It is well for all schol ars, from the very beginning of their stud ies, to be given on ocoasion and in the form of a colloquial talk from their teachers some general information about the . government and their duties to it and each other as mem bers of the social body. By raising the scope of these talks as the children advance from grade to grade, they can easily be made of wide helpfulness without at all encroaching upon the regular studies or overtaxing the pupil's mind. editoriaej notes. It is comforting to think that the dog days will certainly be past by Christmas. An ingenius and high-toned performance in the Board of Education last evening. The Democratic newspapers are not satis fied with the ticket nominated by the Repub lican State convention, but as nobody ex pected they would be there is no disappoint ment. The Salvation army's pecuniary position is described as "really serious" by General Booth. If the army should be compelled to go into bankruptcy and out of business there would not be widespread regret. Philadelphia owns her own gas works, and a company of capitalists want to lease them, offering to pay the city $1,000,000 a year rent, binding themselves to furnish Individ uals good gas for $1.50 per thousand cubic feet and supply the city for 75 cents per thousand. The Canadian government has arranged for the construction of a ship railroad to connect the Bay of Fundy and the Gulf of St. Law rence. Though its length, seventeen miles.is less than that of the one proposed by Eads to cross the Central American isthmus, it will be built on precisely the same plan and may be expected to afford both a test of the ad visability of such a scheme and a basis for estimating the cost. The Supreme court of New York is enti tled to the thanks of all the boys- who "slide down hill." Hannah O'Brien sought to re cover $2,000 damages against the city of Newburg for injuries alleged to have been received last February in being struck and knocked down by a sled ridden by a boy on one of the city hills. In his opinion Judge Barnard holds that the results of the several adjudged cases which bear upon the subject of the accident seem to be that the use of a hand sled upon a street in a city is not per se a nuisance; that a child or grown person may lawfully use a street to ride down hill upon with a hand sled; and that it is not a negligent act upon the part of a municipality to fail to pass an ordinance against the use of hand sleds, even if the common council has the power to do so; neither is it negli gent in the city if it passes the, ordinance and it is violated. A conference of the eolored men of New England is to be held in the Charles street A. M. E. church, Boston, on the 14th and 15th of this month. "This movement," the call explains, "is deemed necessary because the colored citizen is discriminated against in so many depressing and injurious manners, notwithstanding the letter .of the law does not favor the same. It is exhibited by po litical parties, State and national; it exhibits itself in business, in the manufactories, in obtaining employment as salesmen and saleswomen, in benevolent associa tions, in seeking decent tenements. No dis tinction is made as to intelligence, character, deportment or means among the colored peo ple. We believe that the moral influence of the colored men of New England should be felt, outside of all partisanship, in favor of a national administratian that places the wel fare of all above the success of partisan lead eis. ' We believe the time has come for us to make ourselves felt in a more manly and in dependent manner." It is not uninteresting to notice how the brewers look at the same things. At their national convention the brewers on the board of trustees reported to the other brewers that prohibition in Kansas and Iowa, while it had reduced the consumption of malt liquors to "an alarmingly low figure," had simultaneous ly increased the number of drinking places, boomed the traffic in distilled spirits and promoted drunkenness "in its most deplora ble form." Indeed, it was the information and belief of the trustee brewers that "some of the more prominent and active supporters of the prohibitory law are pecuniarily inter ested in large whisky distilleries, and the ob ject of these persons is to destroy the brew ing industry." The brewers of the "vigi lance and publication committee," reported on the strength of letters from their Georgia and Virginia correspondents, that the suc cess of the prohibitory movement in those States was mainly due to "a desire on the part of the ruling party (Democratic) to keep the colored population within certain moral bounds."

A little boy was watching his mother make sandwiches to carry to the picnic last Thurs day and asked what she was putting between the biscuits. "She replied, "Deviled ham."

It is rumored that a new magazine will shortly appear, which will make a specialty of printing in each number an article relat ing to the "late war" between the North and the South. It strikes us that this is an ex cellent idea. We have often wondered why our magazines and weekly papers didn't print a war article now and then. Norris town Herald.

A gentleman who had carefully trained up his servant in the way he should go, so that when his wife was present, he might not de part from it, sent him with a box-ticket for the theatre to the honse of a young lady. The servant returned when the gentleman and wife were at dinner. He had, of course, been told in giving answers in certain cases to substitute the masculine for the feminine pronoun. "Did you see him?" asked the master. "Yes, sir,"' replied the servant. "He said he'd go with pleasure,and that he'd wait for you, sir." "What was he ; dointr," asked the wife carelessly. "Patting on his bonnet, ma'am," said the idiot. "There was a very sad case in the police court this morning," said a lawyer to his wife. "A girl was arrested . ior stealing a fine lace veil. The woman who owned the veil came to the court, and, with heartless iiess, persisted in prosecuting the poor girl. The judge, however, would not allow him self to be influenced, so he released the girl." "She did- not prove that she was innocent, did she?" "Oh, no." "Then why did the judge release her?" "Well, he said that he had no right to interfere in religious mat ters." "Religious matters?-' "Yes, he said that the laws of the land grant to every woman the right to take the veil." The woman did not reply for several minutes. Then she said: "I know a woman who mar ried a fool.I'm the woman. "-Arkansaw Trav eler. The Scornful Dos. LFront the New Orleans Times-Demecrat. The fact that the dog ate the. President's bait on Saturday, as telegraphed from the Lake Saranac fishing ground,recalls a similar experience on the part of a journalist and a criminal judge of this city some years ago at Bay St. Louis, Miss. The two set out one morning after breakfast to the end of one of the bathing piers to try the fascinating diver sions of rod and reel. In one basket they carried a little more for themselves. They set their two baskets behind them on the line of the long and narrow wharf, dropped their lines into the water and dangled their legs over the end of the pier waiting for a bite. They had waited about an hour, when the judge, getting a bite, landed a large croaker on the wharf behind him. He turned just in time to see the tail of his fish disappear down the throat of a big jawed, savage-looking briudle bulldog. The judge and the journalist entertained no bill of exceptions in the case, as the dog looked like he had come there on important bnsiness and wouldn't stand any fooling. So they sat still and waited to drop overboard at the first symptom of a further canine invasion. The dog regarded the anglers a moment with silent contempt, then he calmly devoured all the bait in the fish basket. Next he turn ed his attention to the lunch basket aud literally cleaned up its solid refreshments. He then started to walk leisurely away, . and two suspensive hearts began to beat more freely; but turning as if he had forgotten something he again went to the lunch basket and, scratching among the empty paper par cels, resurrected a whiskey bottle from its depths, and rolling it out on the wharf, let its neck break in the fall. The bulldog stopped, lifted his head and gave the ama teur Wai tomans a settled 100K ot scorn; then he pointed one of his paws at the broken bottle as if protesting against the nse of any more whiskev bv the party that day and. growling a parting adieu, took another knot in his tightly curled tail and trotted off in a dignified manner, as if he had fish to fry somewhere else. The President Sheets a Deer. From the Wasnineton Post. Yesterday the President had a most thrill ing adventure with a deer. A few of these animals have been placed at regular intervals in the vicinity of the President's cottage, in order that he may not be disappointed when he goes out to shoot. This is quite English, you know. When the President sallied forth after his quarry, his billy-cock hat was tilted at an angle on the left side of his head. His yellow corduroy pants were tied tightly around his ankles with a corset string, and his red shirt shone resplendent in the morning sun. It was tied with a bright green bow. "My dear, yon look quite like a dude," said Mrs. C., as she gazed in admiration upon her husband. The President smiled. "I rather think this is handsome," he said, and your corre spondent jotted down the conversation in shorthand. There were only three .persons in the hunt ing party. The President carried a gun, the guide car ried a bottle, and the Post man carried a notebook. - "We leave'one dear to find s'mother deer," said the President. "Hal- hal" laughed Mrs. Cleveland. "Ha! ha!" shouted Dr. Ward. "Tinkle, tinkle, tinkle," said a little cow bell nnder a chestnut tree by the fence. When the party started the first deer was tied to a tree about a quarter of a mile away. At a signal from the guide it was liberated. Instead of bolting away as it had been trained , to do, it ran up iu a most friendly way to the President and began to nibble at the green Dow. ' "Oh,dear," said the President pathetically, "this will never do." You see it was a little girl deer and didn't know any better. Half a mile further a place was found where a deer had been tied: bat. great heavens. it had escaped. -The sport was now getting exciting. Deeper and deeper the party pushed into the woods. The great trees waved their arms in joy at having such a distinguished person beneath their shady branches. The grass quivered in very ecstaoy. The little birds sang sweetly on the boughs. Your corre spondent and the guide took a drink. At that moment the President saw a deer leaning against a tree. Trembling with ex citement, he raised his brand-new Winches ter rifle and fired six and a half shots in rapid succession. Each bullet entered the deer's side,bat the animal did not move. We rush ed to where it stood. Great heavens, it was stuffed! CREMATING A KING. Imposing Ceremonies With Which a Royal Body Was Reduced to Ashes In Banckok. From the St. James' Gazette. The body of the late second King of Siam, who died in August of last year, was crema ted with all due honors on the 14th of Jane. interval between death and cremation seems strangely long: but haste, which in no case is considered "good form" in Siam, is thought especially indecorous when the mor tal remains of any great dignitary have to be disposed of- Accordingly the body of the royal deceased was allowed to lie in state for more than nine months; and it was not till the spring of the present year that prepara tions were made for erecting the grand build ing in which he was to be reduced to ashes. But then, as if by magic, there arose in the wide open space to the north of the royal palace a glittering structure of vast dimen sions. On the outside of the pile, a long quadrangular line ot low thatched build ings forming cloisters. Inside a number of pointed roots rising one above the other. In the midst of these, a four-sided tower with conical roof, sloping upward until it tapered into a pinnacle, and thence dwin dling into a mast, which was held firm by long ropes stretched from the ground. The top of this, nearly two hundred feet from the ground, rose above tne gabled roofs, and the whole mass glittered with bright gilding scattered lavishly over the red groundwork of the walls and platforms below. Inside the cathedral for it resembled nothing so much the scene was still more bright. From the tall ceiling of the naves or aisles hung draperies of rich colored cloth and gauze with festoons of lamps. Along the sides of the aisles were chairs for the state officers, and there was a gold throne for the king himself. In the middle of the building, beneath the great spire, was the catafalque and pyre, a light quadrangular structure pinnacled and draped and profuse ly decorated with wood carving and heavy gilding. On a golden altar within the sort of "four-poster" thus erected was the rest ing place for the urn itself, in which the body of the defunct king was to rest while the fire was lighted beneath. A dim reli gious light, even at midday, pervaded the inmost sanctuary; and the gloom was suita bly relieved by the yellow robes of a priest who from time to time glided ghostlike through the building or squatted in devo tional attitude upon the floor. Four days before the actual burning oc curred the important ceremony of transport ing the body from its state resting place to the cremation building. An immense pro cession was formed on the far side of the ed ifice. A military escort came first and then a troop of artificial beasts constructed of wood. The horse, the Assyrian eagle-headed lion, the fabulous Bachasce deer to Siamese scholars, the tiger and the sacred elephant all glided along, dragged upon tiny creaking wheels by men clad in consecrated jackets of Chinese workmanship. Then came a forest of flags and crimson canopies borne aloft by men wearing striped uniforms of blue, red and white; then more soldiers and more bands; and ifext, amid flourishes of trum pets and the playing of the national anthem, the king himself, borne in a golden litter, with two of his children; His majesty takes his post in a pavilion near the gates of this building, where the princes and ministers are already awaiting him; and soon is heard discordant blasts on the brahmin shells blown by the Hindoo priests who officiate only on high occasions of state in Siam. A long and slow procession follows. The dead march is well played by the royal band in true European style; and to its solemn notes advances a strange procession, in which the Brahmin priests with their snow-white robes and tall, white pointed caps are very con spicuous. Behind them appears the funeral carriage itself a towering structure, on which the dark brown of the wood carving is well set off by the heavy gold of the dec orations. Almost at the top of it, close to the ark which holds the royal remains, sits one of the chief priests. The others hold in their hands the sacred cord which unites them all in prayer. In litters near the hearse are carried the two sons of the late king, clad from head to foot in cloth-of-gold, and these go in first to the building to receive the corpse, which is slowly lowered on to anoth er litter and deposited at length on the cata falque within. On the cremation day all Bangkok turns out. The lakons, or theaters, beat their loudest drums and exhibit their most attrac tive dancing girls. At 5 p. m. the foreign minister proceeds to the east entrance fol lowed by the diplomatic body, who are seat ed on chairs between the east transept and the cloisters. Near them are the great pro vincial magnates in uniform with their gold belts, and inside, within the nave itself, are the chief ministers of state and princes of the blood royal arrayed in black, with blue or yellow sashes. There is a long pause, but at last a scuffling at the gates is heard. Sol diers file in, carrying the red bundles which remind one so much of Roman fasces. A double line is formed, Europeans with their uniforms and evening dress on the one side, Siamese in brighter colors on the other. Then the national anthem sonnds. The king comes in alone this time in his litter of state. His bearers put down the litter; His Majesty steps out of it, salutes the functionaries, sa lutes the diplomats and with a quick step monnts the steps of the naves. Another minute and he has applied the scented torch to the fagots of the pyre, and immediately returning, ascends his litter, and departs. There is a sort of rush into the building; but the hasty are imprudent. A thick, dull va por is rising heavily from the altar and roll ing in sullen waves down the nave. It is supposed to come from fragrant woods deep ly impregnated with sweet scents; but the effect is not agreeable. Its acrid vapor al most blinds the eyes, which can hardly dis tinguish the rich drapery and hangings of the canopy above. Some are inquisitive enongh to push on and mount the half dozen steps leading to the altar; but they are near ly stifled by the smoke and its pine odor. Soon the building is cleared and the work of slow destruction goes on before a mere hand ful of spectators, mostly priests. At mid night the ashes are sifted and the bones col lected in a sacred urn. But during the pre vious six hours the odors that pervade the sacred edifice are not to be described. An Elaborate Dinner Set. Hester M. Poole in Good Housekeeping. The butler's pantry, which contains the forty thousand dollar dinner set of Mrs. George W. Childs ot Philadelphia, would delight any housekeeper having a spark of enthusiasm for things dear to a woman's heart. Ceiling and walls are paneled with the heart of black walnut set in mahogany, and there are cupboards, storerooms and receptacles enongh to hold all the appurte nances of a lavish hospitality. As if these were not enough, the story above, reached by stairs at one side of the pantry, is filled with storerooms groaning nnder the weight of precious porcelain and crystal, much of which deserves to be treated as a separate work of art. Let us see how the table is set for one of those dinner parties in which even only a small portion of this collection-is drawn upon. As it usually stands it is covered by a scarlet spread of Orien tal cashmere heavily embroidered with bul lion thread. In the center is a mirror-lake four feel long by three feet high. It bears a center piece in richly chased silver gilt, vasiform and finished at the top with eight burners, though it is used for flowers in stead. It has a floriated gilt border of open work, smiling at its own reflections, several inches in height, and the whole is raised three inches from the table. The end pieces, of silver and gilt candelabra, also richly chased and supported and fin ished by winged griffins, are nearly eight een inches high, and contain each three burners. These are also decorate with flowers and vines. Standing by the candelabrum at one end of the table is a silver and gilt wine cool er one foot en height, with four raised cir cular panels of enpids and graces. The corresponding article at the opposite ex tremity is a crystal bowl, fifteen inches in diameter and nearly as high, used for flow ers. This and its companion in another city are the finest pieces of glass yet made by any American manufacturer, and for beauty and perfection of cutting they are unexcelled by the best Baccarat ware." The work was done by Thomas Hawkes, the great-grandson of that Mr. Hawkes who first introduced cut glass into England. The profusion of crystal upon the table in the shape of exquisite carafes, compote, fruit and bonbon stands, low and high, and with or without silver bases, are a rev elation of the stage to which glass-cutting is carried in the United States. But all nations are represented. Claret jugs and wine glasses from Bohemia and a set of claret tumblers from Carlsbad, or nately enameled with sprays, flowers and butterflies in gilt, crimson and blue, give dashes of coloring and variety of form to the profuse and varied service. Amidst the collection of crystal is a set of Bohemian champagne glasses which are so unique and beautiful as to challenge universal admira tion. They were presented by General lirant. The silver contains too many pieces to enu merate, embracing specimens of many varie ties of manufacture. Only a small portion of the sterling plate is in use at any time. A large soup tureen and its salver are ele gant in form and finish. Among the curios is a case of repousse silver a foot high, sup ported on a stand of the same metal. It is jointed to admit the glass bottle holding Apollinaris water, and is a most unique arti cle made from a design drawn by a friend. There is also a wise, rolemn looking owl in gilt and silver a foot in height. The only duplicate of the quaint bird is the one from which this was copied, in the British mu seum. One of the most interesting of all these things is the coronet once belonging to Lord Brougham, now used to encircle the base of a crystal fig-holder. Near it is a silvei beak er, tall and slender, on a salver two feet in diameter. We notice that the individual salts and spoons are silver and the butter plates silver-gilt. But we turn from the sil ver and crystal, beautiful as it is, to the por celain, only one course of which is on the table in the illustration. The reader will have to follow me from the dining room to the upper pantries, with their store of prec ious objects. Here we find the works of Minton, made when every piece was an object of special care. The plates are edged with a gilt band a half inch wide on a ground of white, with garlands of small, brilliant, many-colored flowers looped against the narrow turquoise blue band just within the gilt. The mono gram of Mr. Childs, of the same flowers, an inch or more in diameter, fills the middle of the plate. SILKS -AND- Dress Goods ! NEW FALL GOODS Are Arriving Daily.

CONN. A CHILD'S SUFFERING From Ecema. Ears anl Sealp Covered witit Scabs and Sores. Cured ly Cuticnra. My little son. aged eieht years, has been afflicted with Eczema of the scalp, and at times a great por tion of the body, ever since he was two years old. It began in his ears, and extended to his scalp, which became covered with scabs and sores, and from which a sticky fluid poured out, causing in tense itching and distress, and leaving his hair matted and lifeless. Underneath these scabs the skin was raw, like a piece of beefsteak. Gradually the hair came out and was destroyed, until but a small patch was left at the back of the head. My friends in Peabody know how my little boy has suf fered. At-night he would scratch, his head until his pillow was covered with blood. I used ito tie his hands behind him, and in many ways tried to prevent his scratching; but it was no use, he would scratch. I took him to the hospital and to the best physicians in Peabody without success. About this time some friends who had been cured by the Cuticura Remedies prevailed upon me to try them. I began to use them on th 15th of January last. la seven months every particle of the disease was re moved. Not a spot or scab remains on his scalp to tell the storv of his suffering. His hair has re turned and is thick and strong, and his scalp as sweet and clean as any child's in the world. I can not say enough to express my gratitude for this wonderful cure by the Cuticura Remedies, and wisli all similarly afflicted to know that my state ment is true and without exaggeration.
