Many years ago, while engaged in the gener 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 the best in the medical frater nity, and I speedily determined my course of ac. tioH 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 Belief, 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.

The pernicious fraud called Wiggins is getting a good deal of free advertisement, though it is not of a complimentary charac ter. His latest prediction has seriously frightened many thousands of people whose nerves are not in good order and who do not stop to think. Of course, as neither he no.- any other being on earth knows positive ly what the cause or causes of earthquakes are neither he nor any other human being, by any calculations or observations of the forces above, or on, or within the eaith.can proper ly make such a positive prediction as he has given out. But this fact is lost siht of by many. Professor Richard A. Proctor, who reaJly knows something about this world and other worlds, speaks of Wiggins as a half educated and wholly unscientific employe of the mete orological office in Ottawa, who has long en deavored to acquire a cheap reputation by weather prediction of tlrSt kind which of it self assures the students of science that the weather prophet is either utterly ignorant or exceedingly knavish. Mr. Proctor goes on to squelch Wiggins. He points out that certain well known astronomical facts have probably induced Wiggins to make his prediction, one being the slight tendency of earthquakes to increase during the months of August and September, and another that earth -throes are more apt to occf r when the moon is in or near her point of nearest approach to the earth and in or near the line connecting the earth and sun than at other times. The moon will be in such a position in the latter part of this month; but such conditions, Mr. Proctor observes, recur year after year and resulting earthquakes are no more liable to occur this year than in any September of the coming oentury, On the contrary, he argues that there has already been one great earth quake and it is exceedingly probable that the imprisoned forces of the earth beneath the American continent have for awhile found relief and that no great earthquake will occur iu the same region for many years, possibly centuries. Mr. Proctor's opinion is worth much more than Wiggins prediction. To-tnowow is the day selected by Wiggins for his eai chquake, and unless he has extraordinary luck he will be brought to confusion. EDITORIAL. NOTES. Warm work for the Democrats last even ing, and it will be still warmer soon. Judge Paul of the United States Circuit court of Virginia had occasion in a recent case to decide when slaveiy legally ceased to exist in that State. His decree was that April 7, 1864, -rise time when the .Alexandria Underwood State constitution was adopted, was the date on which slavery in Virginia passed away. The recent "defalcations" have brought ont the suggestion that all books be submit ted to the regular examination of licensed and swoia accountants. In London such ac countants constitute a regular profession by themselves, specially trained for the work and licensed to practice. They are public officials and when employed it is for their interest to discover fraud or errors, if they exist. Corporations whose books are regu larly examined by such experts cannot have extensive frauds concealed for a term of yeais. The Republican party is w ide awake this year. The Massachusetts State convention which is to be held this week will comprise an unusually large number of leading Repub licans. Among the more promiuent are Sen ators Hoar and Dawes, ex-Governors Claflin, Rice and Long, Congressmen Rice, Davis, Ranney, Hayden, Stone, Alien, Ely and Whiting, Hons. G. G. Crocker, R. O.

A. Marden and others who are as well know a e id thorough ly respected in their localities. The first Japanese to settle in San Francis co were eleven persons who arrived in 1870. Now there . are more than eight hundred Japanese in the city, of whom about foicy are women. Of these forty twenty are mar ried and their children attend the public schools. These Japanese have come to San FrancWoo partly to learn English and partly to escape military service iu Japan, and they are generally we", educated. They are mostly engaged in house sen ice in San F.-anciscq, in which they are proficient. A few of them are nominal Christians, while the rest are atheists. "The tortures of hell," they say, "are graded according to the amonnt of money one has." When asked why more Japanese women have not come over, one of them said: "The less women the better; a woman's tongue three inches long can kill a man six feet high." What bids fair to be a very acceptable ad dition to our table supplies comes in the shape of a new potato which has been re cently discovered in Bolivia by a Mr. Sace. The value of this new tuber may be judged from the facts that it is the most farinaceous of its species and yields four crops per an num. The Indians esteem it highly, and call it papa purcka. These potatoes grow numerous bulbs, ten to fifteen in a bunch from one seeding, and the manifold stalks are covered from base to top with soft beau tiful leaves, brilliant with a lovely yellowish green. The tnbers weigh from 100 to 850 giatnmes aid contain 20 per ceat. of fecula and 72 per cent, of water. The American General Section of the Universal Union of Culinary Art at its last session made several culinary experiments with the new potato, which proved very satisfactory. Good Knights of Labor disregard the color, creed and nationality of their fellow mem bers. District Assembly 49 of New York city has among its members a number ef colored men, and one of these colored men has been chosen a delegate to the genersl assembly to be Held m Richmond. when a committee was making airangements with Colonel Murphy of the Merchants' Hotel of Richmond he said he oould not defy the custom and usages of the city by allowing the colored man equal rights and privileges with those of his white fellow delegates. The colored delegate, when he heard this, secured a place for himself, and said the other dele gates could select any hotel they liked. The other delegates, however, by a unanimous vote, declared they would only go where their colored brother was admitted on the same footing. The assembly then looked about to devise a way out of the trouble. It finally sent the colored delegate and a white brother to Richmond to secure board for the entire delegation among colored families in that city. Good for 49. The JNew YorK Commercial Advertiser is very outspoken against the Henry George movement. It says: The truth is that the Henry George movement is preposterous in every way. At the time when the obvious need is the election of a practicr 1 man of af fairs, who will keep professional politicians in check, Mr. George, who is not a man of affairs at all, but a visionary theorist, a dreamer and a publio lecturer, is brought forward, and wage earners are urged to sup port him as their peculiar representative for an office for which he has no apparent fit ness whatever. He is not a wage earner, though we believe he once was. He is a man who has made and makes a good thing out of his theories by writing and lecturing, and that is all. He is not identified with the in dustries and interests of this city. If he is specially well informed, or even retsonably well informed, concerning the affairs of the city, he has at no time given any proof or in dication of the fact. If he has capacity to deal successfully with the w Hy politicians and speculators whose schemes of plunder the mayor of New Tork is called upon to check, it is a capacity wholly unknown to anybody. There are hundreds of actual wage earners in the city who are better qual ified than he, both by general capacity and by intimate acquaintance with municipal af fairs, to serve the public well as mayor. COMMUNICATIONS. Voice Culture. fo the Editor of the Jourkal and Courier: If all students of singing could realize that the human voice is an instrument to be like any other instrument practiced upon until the mastery is gained, then many unfortu nate conscientious teachers would be saved much vexation of spirit and good singers would not be so rare. Nearly every beginner imagines that bv the possession of a good voice he hpi only to leain music and sing such songs as strike the fancy to be able to accomplish all that is desirable in a vocalist. His vanity too often leads him to heed the speech of ignorant pre sumptuous persons who tell him that he onght to get on faster, that unless he can sing some songs at once his teacher must be at fault. On every other lnstument the learner is willing to practice exerc'ses and Bcales before pieces come. The human voice is the most perfect musi cal instrument. It being a part of one's per son, it is more Under coutiol to give out the greatest variety of beaut1 "al sounds and to express every emotion. Hence it touches the most sympathetic chords in the soul ot the listener to a degree not reached by any other music. This is often proved by the rapt at tention in an assembly where even ordinary singing succeeds a solo on the piano or some other insti ument. To nse the voice to advantage the singer must have the guidance of a competent teach er upon the voice. Mere knowledge or any other instrument, as the piano or organ, however great it may be, is no guarantee ot capacity to train the vocal organs. The aim of a competent instructor em braces these points: To train the voice so that all the tones may become as nearly equal as possible, in other words evening the voice. To strength en the organ rid coirect the natural defects of which every uncultivated voice has a share shown by the emission of nasal or guttural or trembling tones. To extend the compass of the voice when the pnpil is yonng enough to admit of it. The teacher must have a thorough knowledge of the registers in differ ent kinds of voices: must discern the ele ments of the purest qualities of tone in the voice of his pupil so that by study he can perfect them. Then in time as the ear of the pupil becomes more cultivated he is en ablep to discern the true from the false. The different kinds of voices, viz: soprano, contralto, tenor, baritone and basso, each re quire a different study on the teacher's part, as well as each individual voice may require different treatment, although the renowned vocal teacher, Manuel Garcia, employs the same means for the nnion of the registers for both male and female voices. The requirements of a successful teacher of singing are great natural talent together with a thorough knowledge of the mechanism of the voice, as well as a general musical ed ucation. Fannie C. Howe.

At a recent revival meeting down in Vir ginia an old farmer rose to his feet and par rlyzed the congregation with the following preface to his "experience:" "Dear friends, I am glad to have this opportunity to mingle together and to spend these happy hours where I couldn't if 1 wasn't." Washington Critic. A farmer living near Genessee, 111. , left a number of milk cans by the side of the road for a short time. A muskrat pawed off the cover of one of the cans and crawled in. After it had drunk all the milk it could hold it could not get ont. In jumping around in the can It churned the milk into butter. A ball of butter formed about the muskrat and smothered it. To the question at an examination, "Who was Columbus?" a little girl replied: "Co lumbus was a large bird."

' Some EnterprlainK Country House- keepers. tTrom the Syracuse Standard. I know ladies who take a run down to New York three or four times a year on no other errand in the world than to dine at the Brunswick or Delmonico's. These matrons are all housewives who are jealous of their fame in the culinary ait. They do not make these timed journeys merely to gormandize over the dainty dishes which are produced by the great chefs for the epicurean palates of the metropolis. It is a more practical pretext so to speak. They have in view the acquirement of the freshest secrets of the celebrated kitchens. Out of two or three visits to the cafes they are able to fid the dinner lists a half-dozen new dishes which will add to the completeness of their own entertainments. A little finessing with the waiters and a liberal fee or two will usu ally extract from the inner regions of the best ordered establishments the desired in formation. I am told that the cooks of the big cafes never deceive those with whom they deal through the waiters. If the dish for which a receipt is wanted is a chef d' ceuvre of the culinary master he' will decline to give its component parts and manner of preparation with as much frankness as it is asked. Rarely, however, do the inquisitive ladies hnd it impossible to obtain ail the se crets they desire, even in the establishments where the kitchens are supposed to be inac cessible to amateurs. For a long time a well known city restaurant made an oyster patty which could not be duplicated in JNew York. A lady in this city is said to have given ten dollars for the secret, and was fa vored only becanse she had frequently before paid liberally for little tips. The head cooks at all the principal hotels and restaurants nave regular customers whose names they know and tastes they are familiar with. A hotel manager recently told me that the per quisites of a famous cook from his dealings with amateurs would keep a belle in party dresses. Captain Rosea' Trick. From the Boston Traveller. Captain Boggs, a Virginian, who held a captain's license on the Mississippi river be fore he was of age, and who for foniteen years had the contract to supply the military posts in Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona with fuel, tells the following story: "I was down in the Ute reservation in Col orado, and had strolled down to the shores of a small lake while my mules and team sters were eating dinner, when I came across party of about a dozen Indians. They were armed with rifles and were shooting at a snag which stuck out of the water about two hundred yards distant. The stakes for which they were shooting were composed of quarter of a dollar from each man. I stood watching them for some time and then decided to enter the competition. Each man had three shots and the man who hit the snag the moat times won the pot. The miss es were told by the splash in the water; the hits by the absence of the splash. "After some parley with the redskins I got them to allow me to enter the match, though they compelled me to deposit ha'f a dollar while they put in but a quarter. I had a Henry repeater with me that, fortu nately for my purpose, was then nnloaded. I was accounted one of the best shots in that country, but knew that the Indians were not by any means slow. I slipped three cait ridges irito my rifle and as I did so I broke the ball off, thus leaving a blank cartridge. Of course no splash followed any of my shots and the Indians thought I had hit the snag every time. I won that pot, but the next time I intentionally lost by not break ing the balls off and by taking indifferent aim. 'I then broke all the balls off until I had won eighteen dollars. Then the Indians, j who began to look at me with suspicion or awe, refused to shoot any more. 1 invited them up to the store and spent the money on knick-knacks, which I divided among them. I then took them back to the lake and showed them the trick. They were very much surprised, but took it in good part. ' 'On returning that way a few days after I found the same Indians on the lake shore shooting a big match with a neighboring tribe, whom they were rapidly cleaning out of everything. I learned that they had 'skinned' every Indian in the country that they could get to shoot against them. I said nothing, but mused on the readiness of the savage to adopt the white man's tricks." He Will Explain to Pat Next Time. lF.om the Boston Home Journal. He returned from his yachting trip, and when the luggage of the gander party was conveyed ashore the array of empty bottles that had not been thrown overboard was something of a staggerer to look upon. The gentleman not caring to dump them at the anchorage in the face and eyes of his neigh bors said hurriedly to his man, "Pat, get those under ground about as quick r s yon can. Bury them; do you understand?" "Yes, soir, I do," was the reply; and tie yachtsman went home and tumbled into the arms of Morpheus without delay. The next he knew he heard his wife's voice caUing, "For goodness sake, my dear, what has Pat brought all these bottles np here for?" It was but one step from the bed to the win dow, where the enraged gentleman called out: "You blasted Irishman! didn't I tell you to bury those botties?" "Yer did, soir, and its divilish quick I'll git 'em buried, now I have 'em so handy soir." The yachts man wearily explained it to his wife. Next time he will consider it more valorous and discreet to take Pat a little into his confi dence. . To Beautify the Skin. From the Chicage News. In Von Ziemssen's work on diseases of the skin Heinrich Anspitz, of Vienna, makes the following observations on the subject of beautifying the skin: First A healthy skin is not necessarily beautif al. Even if all i auirements concerning diet, residence, at mospheric and climatic conditions, etc., s carried out, the complexion is often extreme ly bad. The general condition of health has no influence upon the beauty of the com plexion, though it has upon the health of the skin. Second Cleanliness is a sine qua non of the beauty of the complexion, though it does not plav a great part in the health of the skin. Third Water is serviceable to the skin in only moderate amounts and at moderate temperature. Very cold or warm baths, when used in excess, diminish the elasticity of the skin and its power of resis tance to external irritants. Fourth Dis tilled and so-called soft water are more suita ble for washing and less irritating than hard water. Fifth The hard soda soaps are usu ally preferable to the soft potash soaps for toilet purposes. The quality of the soap de pends upon the quality of their constituents and the thoroughness of their saponification. Good soaps must not contain free alkali or any foreign irritating substance. The addi tion of moderate quantities of perfumes does not materially change" the quality. Sixth Simple, finely ground powders such as starch, magnesia, etc., are entirely innocuous and often act as a nsefnl protection against ex ternal irritants. Seventh Frequent appli cation of alcohol (as in bay rum, Florida wa ter, cologne spirits, etc.), abstracts the water of the skin, makes it dry and brittle and im pairs its nutrition. This is also true of gly cerine. All toilet washes containing alcohol to any considerable extent should be avoid ed. Eighth This is true to a still greater extent of other additions to washes such as corrosive sublimate, mineral acids, certain metallic salts, etc. Ninth Camphor acts merely as a bleaching powder. This is also true of benzoic resin, sulphur flowers and substances containing tannic acid. Tenth The nse of sweet smelling oils and fats shonld be employed to a greater extent than is now done for toilet purposes. Eleventh This is particularly true with regard to the -growth of the hair. The nutrition of the scalp should be increased by the rational ap plication of fat (for example in the form of oil baths by means of the application at night of a sponge soaked in oil upon the scalp) and the greater use of simple po mades. These shonld be applied to the roots of the hair rather than the shafts. iweirtn suostances snonid be avoided or sparingly need which abstract water from the skin and the roots of the hair. A CELEBRATED SPECULATOR. Jim Keene'a Unsuccessful Career New lork-HU Uptown Flat. l"Gath" In the Philadelphia Times. 1 In James Eeene, the celebrated speculator, is living this summer in a rented cottage of very plain character at Far Kockaway, to which place he goes every night, giving more time to his family in these days of privation than when he was at the top of the social and speculative world. Persons who know him say that he sometimes has to borrow his fare over the ferry, not that he is so desper ately hard np, but that he has pinched his expenses at every point in order to get square with the world and have another start. He is of a rather cold bearing and is accused of having too much confidence in himself, so that from time to time he has lost the sup port of powerful men who would have, with a little solicitation on his part, helped him tnrougn. Mr. Keene s condition when he came to New York city was very substantial. He had at least four million dollars and was presumed to have in California farther back rag. ne arrived in the city when there was no leader to Wall street, and the brokers came around him with hungry eyes to get nis orders, une ot those brokers, who c made three million dollars by his commissions,-has refused to caiy stocks for him of late, and another who is deep in his account would not even carry two hundred shares for him. He was one of the chief inventors of the grain speculation coincident with the stock market. He was sharply reproved for having put speculation into the necessaries of life and in the end he lost three million dollars in wheat, following the advice of Ru ins Hatch. It is said he met Hatch at the tape measure, who was reading the quota tions with his eyes full of tears, and he blubbered: "Keene, if you don't help me I shall break." Keens went to his assist ance and Hatch showed him how a great deal of monev might be made, but it end ed in Keene being a great loser. He also made a beaw loss m the Hannibal and St. Joseph corner, where John R. Duff, of Boston, had attempted to scoop the whole street. A fiiend of Duff incautiously said to an other pel son at a restaurant table: "The mai you see yonder is Jim Keene and we are going to break him." This person be thought it well to go and tell Keene, whom he had not previously known. Keene found that he was in the toils, so he got to work quietly and began to buy this stock, and for some of it he paid as high as 325, and the same stock he ultimately sold at 7U. He made the most of his money in North ern Pacific preferred. He believf 1 himself in 1875, just after the Pittsburg riots, when he became a bull, worth forty mil lion dollars. When he sold his race horse Foxhall he was already hard pressed, and unable to leave the city lest his absence might be interpreted as fright or desertion. He had no person to send but a woman, wno had taken a sympathetic view of his case and was a good negotiant. She sold Foxhall to Lord Rosebery for twenty -five thousand dol lars, which was two thousand dollars more than Keene expected. Keene's flat up town is said to bring him the comfortable sum of eighteen hundred dollars a month. It is no great amount of money to a man still in the street, satished that there is no future for him unless he re-establishes himself there. THE BASE BILL FEVER. It Attacks a Middle-A ffed Chlcacoan Who Has It In Ita most Virulent Form. From the Chicage News. I enjoyed myself hugely at Thursday's ball game. JNot so much with the game, but with a cynical, middle-aged fiiend of mine, whom I tood along with me. I fouud him warm the cabin. Those round, sheet-iron, air-tight stoves had just come into fashion then. I got me one and set her up. A short time before I turned in I put in a heavy junk chewing the toothpick of sweet and bitter fancy on State street, and asked him what he had to do. "Nothing," he replied, "but to keep cool." "Come out ta the ball game?" said I flip ping two reserved seat coupons before his eyes, we were naraiyseated oetore the game U-eau. but my menu amused himself with gioasting his neighbors for their condemned foolishness and frivolonsness all during the first inning. When the Chicagos came to bat, however, I thought I perceived him pull himself together, and 1 detected an interested glow in his eyes. When Pfeffer fumbled ov er an easy ball and allowed a Detroit man to make his first, I was positive that my friend was really annoyed at the player's clumsiness, and when the same man committed the same error he actually stamped his feet with im patience. By the end ot the Chicagos' first inning he had borrowed my pencil and start ed to keep the score, the gentleman on his left explaining the necessary hieroglyphics. Suddenly, when the umpire decided adverse ly to the home nine in an affair on third base, my friend rose in his seat and, iu concert with 2,000 others, bestowed upon that offi cial such epithets as "chump" and "no good." I made one or two remarks to him, but he was so intent upon the game that he did not answer. Every little while, when a success ful play was made by a Chicago man, he would rise in bis seat and veil " Ya-a-ah-h!" at a youne fellow in the tier of seats be low who had espoused the cause of the Detioits. In the fifth inning the umpire again made a decision which the crowd hotly objected to, and my friend, hailess and coat less, rushed down to the bottom of the grand stand and lent his voice to the general clamor of objection, yhile he shook his fist in impotent rage at the offending umpire. He came back again and caught me smiling; so he said: "Well, you can laugh, but I don't care. I like to see fair play." - Then turning to the field he shrieked out: "How much have you got up on the Detroits, you big fraud?" at which query immediate crowd set up a derisive guffaw, and the young champion of the Detroits in the tier below sprang up and offered to bet $50 against some article of my friend's wear ing apparel his soeks, I believe that the umpire's decision was right. My friend pre ferred to argue it out, and the other insinu ated that perhaps my fiiend was not iu pos session of those useful garments, whereupon mv friend flans his cushion at the other s head aud missed it, but struck the wares of a peddler and knocked them over the railing, If a policeman had not appeared just then there would have been a general row. W waited until the game was out, and, although mv companion was more subdued than be fore, he occasionally broke out with a wild cry of "Home run, Kelly! Home run!" or passionate requests to Burns or Pfefft-r for a "three-bagger." On the way home he anite silent until I suddenly remarked: "I don't see how auy sane being can take the slightest interest iu the spectacle of eighteen louts playing with a. ball," when he laughed and said: "I'm going to see to morrow's game, just the same."
