CONNECTION. medical 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 th utter futility of the methods of relief (relief simply and not cure) employed by the best in the medical f rater nity, and I speedily determined my course of ae tion and wedded my professional life to the raos careful analysis and intimate knowled -e 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 Nbw, Rational, Scientific Trkatment, 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 heal t by growth and recreates the original design. DR. H. N.

Last April my horse was attacked with pneumonia. We all thought he could not live. Being a pet horse, we did everything possible to save it. The disease soon assumed a typhoid form and the doc tor advised us to kill him. The fever finally set tled in his feet and he could not stand upon theni. We tried several preparations to help the hoofs. Hearing of your Ointment I purchased a box, and assure you it worked wonders in tnis case. All of my neighbors are surprised at the result. It is In deed the best Ointment in the world. Yours respectfully, H. I. WILDM VN.

KNOW-NOTHINGISDli Recent events have undoubtedly revivified the spirit which fonnd manifestation in the Know Nothing movement. It has cropped oat most notably thus far in California, where ont of twenty-four nominations made by the convention at Los Angeles (which was composed of nearly seven hundred dele gates) only one was of foreign birth. The Democratic nominee for Governor is .also a Yankee. The San Francisco Argonaut is giving hearty support to the new movement. It says: In this city of San Francisco there will be a complete American ticket State and municipal. It will be organized by selections from all the other party nominations, Demo cratic, Republican and independent. It will be chosen by a select and secret body of in telligent native-born Americans who pay taxes, who do not want office, who resent boss rule, despise professional politicians, and, while conceding to foreigners every privilege of onr government and the fall pro tection of its laws, claim as a right that none but native-born American citizens shall hold office. We shall print it in the Argonaut and distribute it extensively throughout the State in time that every elector in California may have ample opportunity to consider it As for ourselves, we favor trusting the intel ligence of the electors who vote the ticket to write it out for themselves, for there .will be very few members of "the .American party," of native or foreign birth, who cannot read and write'ancT think, and, thus equipped, with pen and ink can make a ticket for them selves. The convention of the American partv is called for the 28th of this month at Fresno City, and the delegates are expected to favor the repeal of the naturalization laws, the ex clusion of aliens from the ownership of real estate and a restriction of immigration against all those "not in sympathy with our government." The whole affair is carious and interesting. What will be accomplished remains to be seen. Probably not much of permanent value. EDITORIAL DOTES, A tame school election yesterday. If the dog days are really over let ns re joice. Cashier Gould is another "surprise." He was "good," respected and thoroughly trust ed. Such surprises are quite as harmful as earthquakes. There is a good deal of oneness about a man and his wife in Vermont. The Supreme court of that State lias just held a man liable in damages for an assault made by his wife on a neighbor, though committed "against the will and in spite of the best endeavors of the husband." Justice Gleason of Charleston has invented a seismograph, or earthquake indicator, and a very simple one-it is. A glass jar half full of water is the basis of manufacture. Then carefully pour upon the water a mixture of oil and lampblack, or any other coloring ma terial. The slightest disturbance of the equilibrium of the stratum of the colored oil sends it up on the sides of the jar, and it records the height to which it has been raised. The Republican congressional convention for the First district of the State will be held in Hartford on Thursday of this week. The Hon. John R. Buck is apparently certain of a renomination. The Hartford Courant says of him: Mr. Back deserves a renomination, and will, we believe, receive it unanimously. It will be a proper recognition for his de votion to the interests of his constituen ts, and of his faithful performance of every duty in his official position. Mr. Back has now, after two terms of Congress, the ex perience which makes him especially valua ble as a representative. He has a wide ac quaintance with the members of the house, and is universally esteemed by his brother members. Accounts of the massacre of Catholic mis sionaries and converts in southern China show that the race of martyrs is by no means extinct. Father Terrace, who had lived for nineteen years in Yunnan, when a mob surrounded his house at night, gathered his followers in the chapel, gave the last ab solution, went to the door, and presenting himself to the rabble, said: "Here am I to answer for all." He was at once out down by sabres. Father Bechet, a young priest in Tongking, saw a number of his converts be headed, and then, refusing to be bound 01 blindfolded, offered his neck to the execu tioners without a tremor. Father Chatelet, ordered to descend to the place of execution, as hundred; of his converts had done, said: I shall not go so far. If yon want my head come and get it." The swords made short work of him where he stood. There are some men who don't know when they are well off, and one of them has brought suit against Judge Homer of the dis trict court in Nebraska for $50,000. Years ago the judge defended the man, who was acensed of murdering a father and son, and although it was proved that the man shot both of them Homer got him off with ten years in the penitentiary. The man sets up that Homer "allowed him" to be tried in a county in which there was great prejudice against him, and where he was convicted of manslaughter. The other counsel secured a new trial from the Supreme court and when the cases came back they were divided, he being tried in the county where the preju dices existed for the mnrder of the son, and again convicted; but that for the murder of the father he was taken to the county where he wished to be tried in the first place and there was acquitted. And he now wants Homer to pay him $50,000 for what he has suffered. CORRECT. Teacher in grammar recitation I didn't have no fun at the seaside. How would yon correct this, Johnny?

"Mr. Featherly," inquired Bobby, while the dessert was being discussed, "is your dog's name Rome?" "No," replied Feather ly, in some astonishment, "his name is Ma jor. Why, Bobby?"

Sbe Has Distributed a Lot Among Her Friends and made Tbem Fashiona ble. From the New York Sun.l Queen Victoria has made the opal fashion able again. All the gifts of jewelry that she has bestowed among her friends for the past year have been opals. Sometimes they have been set alone, sometimes set with diamonds, bnt in every instance they have been there. The Queen has always -had a penchant for these alleged unlucky stones. She has in sisted that they brought no more bad luck to those wearing them than any other jewels, and she has long tried to allay that supersti tion. Her rather profuse distribution of these stones among her friends, it is said, had for its object the doing away with the super stition altogether. The Queen's own jeweler naturally took the hint, and the other jewelers who were not the Queen's own, but who were mc than willing to be, were not slow in perceiv ing that there was a ready sale for the very gems that had been heretofore looked upon with snspicion. So they made up into rings, pins and in other ways, all they had in stock and sent out for more. Thus it was not very long before every blooded English lady or gentleman who wore jewelry at all sported many and beautiful opals. Then it wouldn't be English, you Know, if the blooded Amer icans didn't have a lot of opals too, and al though President Cleveland didn't have any "own jeweler" to set the opal a rolling, there were lots of jewelers who did. There wasn't a big stock of opals in these parts, so orders were sent to Hungary, the great opal market, to rash on nere the best they had. Then opals went up. To-day they are one hundred per cent, higher tnan thev were a year ago. Good ones sell for fifty-five dol lars a carat and increase in price in almost the same ratio as diamond. Of course small and inferior stones ean be bought as low an five dollars a carat, but they are not a bit pretty. The big jewelry houses are work ing them into all sorts of jewelry, and are very sad because they cannot get as many as thev want. The jewelers and precious stone dealers of the eighteenth century, who bad invested largely in opals, were nearly thrown into bankruptcy by Sir Walter Scott, who in one of his Waverly novels pretty nearly ruined the opal's reputation forever, and it is said that many lewelers of the present day cner- ish resentment against the great novelist on account of the injury that he did to their forefathers, and will not allow any of his works on their library shelves. The ancients had called the opal the "love stone," and no blooded young Roman or Greek would have even faintly considered engaging himself in marriage if he hadn't an opal ring for the girl. And any ancient who had a very choice opal at once became proud and looked down on the other ancients wuo were not so tortu nate. Indeed there are strange stories told of these men of old and tneir opals. It chronicled in the encyclopedia, which took the fact Btraight from the old records, that a Roman Senator named JNomus had an opal that made all the other opals in those parts pale. One day Marc Antony happened to see it and he wanted it for himself. He in timated to the Senator that it would not be a bad scheme to make him a present of it. But the Senator didn't see it in that light. Then Antony said he would have to give him -that opal or be banished. Nonius re plied that he would be banished then and left the oonntry with his opal, all his other goods having been confiscated. The an cient Pliny, who saw this opal, says that it was worth in Roman money equivalent to five hundred thousand dollars. When Sir Walter Scott wrote that novel it was "Anue of Geierstein" -and told about the Baron Von Arnheim, who had an opal that occasionally got angry and flashed red fire, the opal market dropped at once. That opal worked too much mischief not to ruin the reputation of its family. Its first little eccentricities weren't so much, but its wind up was very bad. The baron had wedded a beautiful Persian maiden, and for a year or two. while that opal was behaving itself, af fairs went smoothly enough. Then the baron and his wite went to cnarcn to have their baby christened. It was all right until a drop of holy water fell on that opal. There was a sizzle and a lot of red fire darted out of the opal, which at once became as dull and lustreless as a piece of a dinner plate, and it wasn't long after this that the baron and the baroness died. After reading that story nobody oared much for opals, and it would have been hard to find a girl who would have consented to have one in her engagement ring. Appa rently Queen Victoria doesn't believe the story", or superstition isn't as strong as it was. At any rate the latest engagement rings will contain opals. One thing has leased out since opats nave imun become tasmonaoie. ana mat is tne dealers in Hungary have Been playing it low on the other dealers. Tne best opals were said to come from Hungary and everybody sent there for them. Now the truth is that the best opal mines are in South America, just where nobody is willing to tell, and the Hungarian merchants have been having them shipped to Hungary, where they are sold as a home product. One bright jeweler of this city tumbled to this fact and sent an agent down to South America, who bought up twenty-five hundred very fine opals aud bar gained for several thousand more. The oth er jewelers have tried hard to get him b tell where the miues are, but he won't. For Sharks, Devil Fish and Stlnga rees. From the New York Sun. "One of the strangest voyages I ever made," said Captain Croxon of New Orleans, "was m the summer of 1858. I had a three masted schooner named the Southern Belle and was in the coasting trade. It was about May 1 and I had run into New Orleans with a consigned cargo, when a stranger tame aboard one day, looked the craft all over and finally introduced himself as Joseph Harper, a native of the State. He said he was a man of wealth and leisure and was thinking of chartering a schooner for four or five months. He was a quiet, mild-spoken man, well edu cated and a perfect gentleman, but there was something just a bit queer in his actions. He looked at you iu a furtive way as if he thought you mistrusted him, and he had a habit of giving a sudden start and lookincr all about him as guilty men are supposed to do. "What sort of a charter do you suppose he wanted to make? You'll hardly believe me wnen l tell you that he took a seat in my cabin and gravely informed me that he be lieved it his duty to go forth against sharks, stingarees and devil fish. He wanted a staunch craft and he proposed to go along and help- make war on the reptiles men tioned. He didn't act like a crank, and I could not laugh at him, and he didn't appear to be insane so that I could cut the matter short. He offered to fit the schooner out for a six months' cruise and pay me so much per month in cash, and he talked business just as straight as any man you ever heard. I put him off for a day or two, but he came again. Then I made some inquiries about him and I found that, while he was a stran ger to all, he had plenty of funds and was considered all right in his head. As I was the sole owner of the schooner, and as his offer was a far better thing than I could hope for in another direction, . I began to think more favorably of it. The result was that he put several thousand dollars to my credit in the bank, bound me in a legal way to cruise where he directed . and then went ahead to fit up the schooner. From the hour of signing the papers he lived aboard. Not only that, but he shaved clean, put on a sailor's sait and completely disguised his identity. My mate, whose name was Bur rows, thought strangely of this and insisted that the man was a lunatic; but after a bit we concluded that he was a crank who was all right except upon the one subject, and no further action of his surprised us. "Carpenters came aboard to fix up quar ters for him, and when that job was finished a runway was made to draw up captured sharks upon, aud a small steam engine was put aboard for hoisting purposes. He hired an engineer at fifty dollars a month and board to take charge of the latter, and we took aboard ten tons of coal to run it. He provisioned the schooner and he bought the very best of everything. The stores for the crew were better than those supplied for any coaster's cabin, and the cabin stores were equal to those of any passenger steamer. He had half a hundred shark and other hooks made, bought chains, ropes and lines, and one of the last purchases brought down con sisted of twenty-five barrels of salt beef for shark bait. He wanted to take on two hun dred live dogs, but I convinced him that the beef would answer just as well. "Our first objective point was the Florida coast, and after reaching Santa Rosa Island we began our work. From that point clear around the coast to Charleston you can hard ly run amiss of sharks and stingarees, though yon won't have much luck in hunt ing for an octopus of any size. Our man was greatly excited when we got on sharking ground, and he couldn't keep still until we had made half a dozen captures. The first day brought us seventeen all man-eaters. When one was hooked we drew him close up by hand, slipped a running noose over his head, aud then he was hauled around to the runway and the ropes were carried to a drum and the engine started. We had an extra deck of rough boards for the fish to land on, and the sharks were dispatched by blows of the axe and lance. Harper was as much ela ted over each capture as a general would be to win a battle, and a careful record was made of weight, length and species. We were at it a whole week before he tired of the slaughter, and he might have held on longer if sharks had been more plenty. They finally became suspicious of us or took alarm from some unknown cause, and at the end of the week the baited hooks were no longer a temptation. Oar catjh was from seventeen to twenty eight a day, making a total for the week of one hundred and sixty eight, each one of which was large enough to bite a mon in two, while a score or more were monsters which could have got away with a horse in two or three bites. "We then ran around to the Georges to fish for stingarees. This fish or reptile, or whatever you may call it, haunts the sand bars and feeds mostly on soft shell clams. We had to anchor the schooner and go out in small boats, and we made but eight cap tures during the week we lay there. I rath er expected that a couple of weeks would cool Harper on, but the case was lust the op posite. Every fresh victim seemed to add to his zeal, and we ran further into Appalachee Bay and put in another week at sharking The fish were there as thick as flies around a sugar bowl, and in the seven days we cap tured one hundred and eighty. When one had been drawn aboard and dispatched we had no further use for him. The remains were thrown overboard and the living would fiuht for him before our eyes. We got one chap there fully twentv feet long, and when ever a coaster came near ns Harper would have a boat sent off to tell her what luck we were having in killing off the common ene my. At the end of the third week he be came restless with de3ire to capture an ooto pus and we set sail across the gulf for Cuban waters. I had heard of the creatures being plenty to the south of Cape San Antonio aud made for that locality. We ran in pretty close to the Isle of Pines, found a safe an chorage, aud the iron was hardly down be fore Harper had our boats in the water to ex amine the reefs thereabout. e were searching three days before we found one. and he was a small fellow who was more anx ious to get away than to fight back. Then a wrecker recommended the islands to the east of Santa Cruz and we up anchor aud stood for the new grounds. We passed to the south of Santa Cruz and brought up among the Antigua group, fish inir for sharks and catching a matter of fifty on the way. We soon had cause to believe that we had struck the right place. The verv first boat out discovered a devil fish on a reef within a quarter of a mile of the schooner, and as a harpoon was darted into him, he flnng four or five of his terrible feel ers into the boat, and would nave laseu one of the men overboard had the feelers not been severed with a hatohet. The man who was gripped was partially paralyzed for a couple of "days and unquestionably suffered much pain. ' Harper's first act on returning ts. the whooner was to present the man with a twenty dollar gold piece, while the rest of the boat's crew received half the amount. It was plainly understood that the engineer, cook, steward, mate and myself should be exempt from these boat excursions, but Har per still had seven active men left him. We were not idle, however, in their absence. The shark hooks were always out, and it was a noor dav when we did not have at least a dozen sharks aboard. "We cruised around the islands for a mat ter of six weeks, having the best of luck, and we should have put in several weeks more but for what happened to Harper one day. He had become pertectiy crazy on the "subject of devil fish, and would have hunted them by night had the men been able to stand it. We had killed about thirtv. large and small, when boats put off . I. - ' i. C .V. . One alternoon w lnuptfi. at i Ktkt side of Guadeloupe. There were numerous channels cut through the reef, and as the boat was working through one ot tnem a monster octopus, was discovered in four feet of water. Harper himself hurled the harpoon at him, and the next moment hve or six ot those tern Die reeiers were ui the gunwales of the boat and making xasc to the men. Harper fell down and rolled under a thwart, but one of the feelers found him and fastened to one of his hands and across his face. The men were pro vi jj ;n. .)... lrniina and hatchets ana sneedilv cut themselves loose, they were a used-up lot when they returned .V. but to the ship, rue reeier wuii.

Ue worked up to Charleston and back to New Orleans before the season expired, and the record "made will never be beaten, as we were probably the only crew who ever went or will go on such an enterprise. We cap tured thirtv four devil fish, seventy-two stingarees and two- thousand six hundred and eighty-one sharks. We put in five months to a dy, and upon our retnrn to New Orleans Harper presented me with the stores left, gave the engine to the man who had run it, and presented every one of the crew with a sum ot money. He made me promise to hold the schooner for him anoth er year, but he did not come for her. Did I find out anything more about him? Oh, yes. He died in an insane asylum that winter." Volcanoes and Earthquakes. James Hector, in Nature for August 26, about a week before the Charleston earth quake, published an article on "Recent Vol canic Eruptions in New Zealand," in which he says: Earthquakes are the usual results of the violent concussions attendant upon violent outbursts, and they afford the only clue which we ean possibly have as to the depth below the surface of the earth at which the volcanic energy has been exerted. Thus, if the earth quakes are felt with only slightly decreased violence to great distances from the focus of the disturbance, it would indicate that the disturbance is a deep-seated one. On the other hand, if the earthquakes, although ex tremely violent close to the focus, are only felt at a moderate distance, the conclusion to be drawn is that the forces at woik are only superficial. All reports aree that at the Wairoa, about four miles distant, which is the nearest point to the eruptions from which any personshave survived, the - shocks of earthquake during the phase were violent and continuous- whereas at Rotorua, twelve miles distant, they were comparatively slight. The great earthquake at the commencement of the second phase appears to have been felt with considerable violence at Rotorna, and distinctly arrested attention for a distance of at least from sixty to seventy miles, bat does not appear to have done any dam age. During our visit the earthquake shocks in the vicinity of Rotomahama were still fre quent and violent, but at Rotorua they were only experienced as gentle undulations, and I ascertained that they proceeded from the effects of the explosions from the Rotomaha ma fissure, aud that the eruptions from the summit of Tarawera, which were clearly vis ible from Rotorua, did not produce the slight est apparent tremor at that distance. A few insignificant earthquake rents were seen crossing the flats south of Kaitiriria,but only where there was a drop of unsupported bank. The sounds produced during the eruption must have been, from all accounts, appalliDg to those within a moderate distance. The crackling thunder produced by the electrical discharges, the terrific roaring of the high preSHure steam escaping through the volcanic vents were combined with terrifying effects. Much has been said about noises heard at Auckland, Wanganni, and other places. From the times mentioned these appear to have been due to the reverberating reports accompanying the Tarawera outbreaks. Some of these noises may have been propagated through the atmosphere and reflected to the earth from the under surface of the statiform cloud-sheets that were widely spread in vari ous directions over the colony on that morn ing. Others again may have been propagat ed through the earth. But I have been in formed that at the whaling settlement of Tawaite, on the east entrance of Troy Chan nel, from six p. m. up to about einht r. r.i. on the evening of the 9th (the night preced ing the eruption) loud booming reports were heard as through the earth. As these reports were previous to any symptom of the loud disturbances at Tarawera, this suggests that they may have resulted from a slight move ment along the great fault-lines that trav erse the North and South Islands in a north easterly direction, and, in this case, the im mediate cause of the Tarawera outburst may be found in a local fracture resulting from such movement. From the foregoing sketch of the charac ter of the emotion I think there can be'little question that it is a purely hydro-thermal phenomenon, bnt on a gigantic scale; that it is quite local aud not of deep-seated origin, and that ail danger is past for the present, so far one ean venture to form an oninion on such a subject. The extra activity of the puias which has been observed is no doubt owing to the heavy rains that on the Oth set in after the longest period of drought which has been experienced in that district for many years, and probably the frecment earth quakes which have of late agitated the ground have contributed to this activity by stirring np the sources of the water supply, and facilating the access of drainage-waters to tne sources ot the heat. But bevond what may be accounted for in this manner I be lieve there is no increased disturbance at Rot orua, Wairakei, Taupo, and other places. The quiescent condition of Tongariro and Nguurahoe was plainly shown by the matter in which we observed it to be envelop?d in snow. As a rule, on the scoria cone of Ngaurahoe, snow rarely lies, excepting in a few of the gullies, but melts alaiost as rapid ly as it falls. On the morning of the 17th, however, the cone of Ngaurahoe was covered witn a great mantle ot snow, while the puias on Tongariro showed less than their usual amount of steam escaping. The only fresh activity which rnav bo reasonably expected is that which I anticipate when sufficient rain has fallen to cause theoevrflow of Okaro Lake into the south end of the great fissure, as its former drainage outlet to the Rotomahan Lake appears to me to be completely filled up. If this should occnr,and a fresh explos ion take place in consequence, it will be com paratively moderate in its effects, as, nnlike Rotomahana, the soft, incoherent pumice de posits between the fissnro and Okaro Lake are not sealed down by an enormous weight of siliceous sinter.
