X have tried a number of physicians, bat without receiving any permanent benefit. Among the number were one or two specialists. The medicine they applied was like fire to the sore, causing intense pain. X saw a statement In the papers telling what S. 8. S. had done for others similarly afflicted. I procured some at once. Before I had used the second bottle the neighbors could notice that my cancer was healing upv My general health had been bad for two or three years I had a hacking cough and spit blood continually. I had a severe pain in my breast. After taking six bottles of 8- S. S. my cough left me and I grew stouter than I had been for several years. My cancer has healed over all but a little spot about the sl of a half dime, and it Is rapidly disappear ing, i Woald advise every one with cancer to give S. 8. 8. a fair trial. Has. NANCY J.

The sweeping pension bill which passed both houses of congress last week and is now before the President for signature is exciting a great deal of discussion, yet none too much. It provides that all persons who served three months or more in the military or naval ser vice of the United States in any war in which the United States has been engaged, and who have been honorably discharged therefrom, and who are now or may hereafter be suffer ing from mental or physical disability, not the result of their own vicious habits or gross carelessness, which incapacitates them for the performance of labor in such a degree as to render them nnable to earn a support, and who are dependent upon their own labor for support, shall, npon making due proof of the fact ac cording to such rules and regulations as the secretary of the interior may provide, be placed npon the list of invalid pensioners of the United States and be entitled to receive, for such total inability to procure their Sub sistence, $12 a month; and such pension shall commence from the date of the filing of the application in the -pension office, upon proof that the disability then existed, and continue during the existence of the same. This is a very generous measure. This country had already done better by its dis" abled defenders than any other country. Every worthy soldier who was entitled to re lief was provided for by previous acts. It is hardly too much to say of this measure, as the Springfield Republican does, that osten sibly it is a patriotic measure, but practically it is a long step toward the grand commun istic principle that the State owes every man a living and is bound to provide it for him. The Republican indicates how" it will work, a3 follows: The new bill extends the help of the State to those who incurred no disability whatever in the service, but who from the natural advance of life, or from accident, or from common causes, such as catching cold or malaria, or from sheer laziness, are be hindhand with life. The provision against vicious habits or carelessness will practically amount to nothing, for how is it to be proved that any individual is disabled from work by reason of drinking or reckless exposure alone? How is it to be proved that a man can "earn a support" if he declares that he cannot? Plainly the burden is on the government. Where the pension business, is to end no one can tell. Perhaps the sons and even the grandsons of veterans will be pensioned if they can make the right impression on the politicians who are after votes. EDITORIAL NOTES. It is believed that the effort to create a "corner" in Turkish prunes will react on the syndicate which originated it. The more such failures the better. A full blooded Indian has been ordained deacon in an Episcopal church in Minneapo lis, and the New York Tribune uablushingly remarks that he must be a Lo chnrchman. Inspector Byrnes of New York is receiving a great deal of praise for discovering the murderer of Bohle. It was, indeed, a re markable piece of work. The inspector has done several things which show him to be a first-class deteeave. The heathen Chinese government has awarded $25,000 damages to the missionaries in southern China who were the victims of a riot some months since. . The government of this Christian country has not yet appro priated money to indemnify the Chinese vlo tims of the Bock Creek outrages. The unreasonable attacks npon the propo sition made by the Housatonic Valley Rail road company are entirely uncalled for. Let the offer be discussed fairly and with the in tent to do the best possible thing for the city. The offer furnishes an opportunity which the taxpayers of New Haven are not slow to see. As good an offer has never been made, and it is extremely doubtful if as good a one ever again will be. High license continues to grow in favor "out West." The high-license bill intro duced in the Indiana legislature provides for a license of $300 a year for a country saloon and $600 for a town or city saloon. One-half of the county or "country" license goes into the school fund; the other half is retained for county purposes. In the city and town lioenses permission is granted for a further raise of $200. This would make it possible to tax saloons in Indianapolis $800 a year. A writer in a Canadian paper, speaking of the possibilities of pulp as a substitute for lumber in the manufacture of furniture and oth' r articles now exclusively made of wood, palls attention to the resources afforded by northern Canada for the best pulp-making woods. It is found that in some localities the forests are now at the best age for pulp ing purposes, and capable of yielding from forty to one hundred and twenty cords per acre, if the whole of the timber were utilized. By mixing the pulp with clays, atealite, as bestos, plumbago, mica, &o. , substanoes of every color and compactness may be pro duced. ' The Electrical Review has information re garding a wind motor, designed for use with an electric-lighting plant, which has novel features. The power of the motor in the or dinary breeze is said to be about equal to that of an ordinary windmill presenting the same surface to the wind. As the wind in creases in force the speed and power of the motor increase in proportion, without any check, except by the work it performs; but the machinery driven by the motor runs at one uniform speed, however much the motor may vary in speed. The idea af the inventor was to make a motor that would drive a dynamo to charge accumulators, and do its work automatically, without requiring the presence of an attendant. The. motor is left freo to start whenever there is sufficient wind to drive it,and when it attains sufficient speed to drive the dynamo safely, the dyna- . mo is started automatically, and not before, When started, the dynamo will run at one uniform speed under any increase in the pres sure of wind, and consequent increase in the speed of the motor; but when the wind de creases in force, so that the motor will not drive the dynamo at a sufficient speed to charge the accumulators,the dynamo is stop ped automatically, and the same mechanism will break the contact between the dynamo and the accumulators.

From the Indianapolis Journal. When General Sherman was pressing the rebels hard at Meridian, Miss. , in 1864, his two daughters were attending school at St. Mary's academy near Notre Dame, Ind. There were also in that institution a number of southern girls, whose Tebel proclivities they were always ready to make known upon the slightest provocation, and the result nas that there was a constant feud between them and the northern girls. Among the latter no one was more pronounced ia hatred of the rebel cause than Miss Minnie Sherman, now the wife of Lieutenant Thackera of the United States navy. She was the champion and heroine of such in that school. Mrs. John Cannon of Andrews, Ind. , who was" a classmate of Miss Sherman's, recalls some interesting reminiscences of the latter dur ing the last days of the war. On Washington's birthday, 1864, about the time when General Sherman was de stroying the railroads in Mississippi, a band of musicians from South Bend came ont in the afternoon to the academy to serenade the pupils. The visit was anticipated by the southern girls and they prepared for it. When the stirring strains of the "Star Span gled Banner" and "Hail Columbia" had died away a namber of the rebel girls appeared at one of the windows, each with a small rebel flag pinned upon her breast. The band grew indignant and drove rapidly away, and when the townspeople heard of the thing they were greatly incensed and many threats of mob violence were uttered. Inside the in stitution the situation was not so bad. When the superior, Mother Angela, heard of the action she rushed to the girls and tore the flags from their breasts and sent them to their rooms. On the evening of the same day a ball, attended only by the pupils of the institution in honor of the day, was giv en, and an appropriately decorated Union flag hung like a curtain over a doorway at one end of the ballroom, and was looked upon with pride by the Union girls. How ever, when one of the southern girls passed it she tore it like a tigress from the wall and trampled it under her feet. Minnie Sher man was but a few feet away. Her face flushed and her eyes flashed their indigna tion, and she was unable to speak for a few moments. Then with a terrifying 4'How dare you!" she drew back her hind and struck the girl such a blow that she was prostrated. . Then all was excitement and confusion, the young sister m charge ot tne room was horrified and all looked for a dreadful scene, but the flag was replaced and remained there all the evening. The two words spoken by Mother Angela, "Young la dies!" soon brought the girls to their senses; but though the entertainment was contin ued, none of the girls quite recovered their equanimity. Lord" Wellington In Difficulty. I From the Pall Mall Qazette. A "French officer tells an amusing anecdote in a recent nnmber of the "Revue Retro spective." It was at the time when the French army stood before Torres Vedras, separated from the English camp by a num ber of vineyards in which there were a few caves containing wine. The soldiers of both armies drank fraternally from these stores without ever coming in conflict. One day, however, a French sergeant was captured in one of the caves by some English soldiers, who took him into their camp tmd conduct ed him to the Duke of Wellington. After a few questions the sergeant was ordered to leave, but would not stir. "Go along," said the general. No move ment, but the brusque reply, 'General, your soldiers had no right to make me their pris oner." "And how is that!" "How is that? It is this way: The cave being neutral ground, they had no more right to capture me than 1 nad to captnre them. They took advantage of my Isolation. Soldiers ought to have more manners among themselves." "Was that the way you were taken prison er?" "Yes, general." "Very well, you shall dine with my attendants and go where yon came from." But the Frenchman still re fused to move. "Have yon not heard what I said, sergeant?" "Qh, yea, general. I have heard it all, but I do not wish to go with your attendant." "And why not?" "Because no French soldier ever eats with domestic servants." Lord Wellington, with a bow and a sign of assent, took the hint, ordered another convert to be laid at his own table and invited the French sergeant to din ner. "niu Cleveland" at tUe Capitol. Washington Gossip in the Baltimore American. A funny incident occurred in the House gallery yesterday. A new doorkeeper was in the private gallery, wh?n a lady came up to him and started to go in. The doorkeep er remarked that she oonld not enter, as this was the private gallery, whereupon the lady drew herself up and remarked: "You don't seem to know me. I am Miss Cleveland." The new doorkeeper was astonished and begged pardon. He not only opened the door, bnt went inside and down to the front seat and made the people there get out be cause "the President's sis cer" wanted to get a seat. The lady swept down to the front row and took her place. Soon it became noised about that Miss Rose Elizabeth Cleve land was in the gallery. The women craned their necks to see her and so did . everyone else. Finally the doorkeeper of the diplo matic gallery came around to see what the excitement meant. He asked the new door keeper of the private gallery what was going on. "Why, Miss Cleveland, the President's sister, is inside," he remarked. The diplo mat went in and in a few minutes came out with great disgust and remarked that the woman was no more Miss Rose Elizabeth Cleveland than he was. The other door keeper told the new doorkeeper the same thing and he laughed heartily at his being imposed upon. The woman was a Miss Cleveland, but no relation to the President, nor did she tell the doorkeeper she was. Fuller-Folk Peculiarities. From the Art Journal. It is not to be wondered at that these poor, ignorant people, who live on or by the sea all their lives, are imbued with queer notions and superstitions concerning it. They do not acknowledge this readily, are rather ashamed of it indeed, and it takes time and familiarity to bring these superstitions to light. They appear to endow the sea with Bentient power, with an intelligent and gene rally malignant will. It is ever ready to undo human labor and destroy human hope. Before very rough weather there occasionally comes a strange calm, a hush like to nothing save the holding of a breath before a furious outburst of rage. It has a weird effect, com ing as it often does at nightfall. After this a dull, wailing, muffled sound creeps out of the darkness a sound as of lamentation and entreaty heard from afar. "The sea is call ing," they say here; and when this happens the fishermen expect a gale before morning. v hen the sea has got hold of its prev and there is a house or houses desolate in the village they hold that it mourns, making quite a different sound to any other time. About funerals there are odd observances and ideas. It is unlucky either to meet or to cross a funeral train. There are girls in the village who are a sort of professional mourn ers (though unpaid) for children and young women who die unmarried. Thev are dressed in black, with white hoods and shawls of white spun silk on their shonlders. Six of these mourners is the mystic nnmber, and whenever one is married another is se lected to fill her place. Probably it is con sidered a post of honor, for there never seems a vacancy, though I do not know how the selection is made. They are grave look ing damsels, so it may be by their fitting ap pearance. At a young man's funeral there are only two of these girls, who walk before and are called "servers." The Dissenters have a custom of singing a sort of dirge over their dead, not unlike in effect the chanting of the monks at a funeral in Rome. But when the sad duties are done comes a time of feasting. Their pride forbids them to have anything but "a mensefal funeral." Another peculiarity is that when the people are asked to attend it is by men and girls named "bidders" (not necessarily relatives of the deceased.)

From the Saturday Beview.j From such persons you may hear that if anyone takes the eggs out of a raven's nest, boils them so as to render them incapable of incubation and replaces them, the parent birds will fly to a brook and fetch thence a white stone of the size and shape of the eggs. The stone they say it places carefully among the eggs and then sits on eggs and stone to gether. The stone restores vitality to the eggs and after the brood is fledged and has flown it is left behind in the nest. It has, however, suffered a great change. It is now semi-transparent, and in every respect ex cept its weight and harduess is exactly like an egg. If it be placed near any poisoned food the yolk begins to move violently and thus warns the fortunate possessor of his danger. The lapwing is even more given to sorcery. It always deposits a stone the size of a pea iu its nest. What use it is to the bird or its family no one seems to know, but if anyone finds it and places it under the pillow of a Bleeping person he will answer every ques tion that does not exceed the limits ot hu man knowledge with perfect truth iu the language in which it is asked. The marvel ous stories told of serpents are innumerable. There is one about a yard m length and as thick as tne upuer part ct a strong man s arm, which haunts dry wooded places. It is so venomous, especially in May, that not only will tve first person it bites in that month die himself, bnt anyone who stands beside or comes to help him will share the same fate. If he falls beneath a tree that too, or if it be very large, at least one half of it will be killed. Again sernents of all kinds are very fond of milk. In the old days, before the rail way was built, a coachman who used to drive on the road between Foggia and Na ples once fell asleep outside a little inn while his horses were baiting. His mouth was open and a snake crept down his throat. After this he felt unwell, though he did not kuow why, and none of the doctors could tell what was the matter with him. At last he consulted the professors of the University of Naples. They hung him up by his feet and placed a great bowl of milk beneath his head. The snake, attracted by the smell, crept out to drink, but still kept a great part of its. body in the mouth and throat of the coachman. A voung doctor sprang forward. pulled it out and threw it away, when it was killed. It was about two and a bait feet in length. After this the patient was as well as ever. , Hints on Bathing. From the New Or'eans Picayune We "take cold" through the skin it should be remembered, as we also breathe through it, throwing off superfluous heat which becomes fever when the perspiration is sup pressed and also sending off waste pro-; ducts. Persons who have any tendency to pulmonary disease should make their skins active. A double handful of common salt thrown into the bathing water after the cleaning process has been performed is a beneficial addition. The saline particles are veiy penetrating, and no amount of rubbing will remove them from the skin, upon which they exert a most nseful, though a. gentle stimulating influence, especially salutary in cases of sluggish liver. Not only does this act locallyon the skin, increasing its secre tions, but also quickens the process of nu trition in all the tissnes of the body. Tbumbless mittens of ordinary Turkish toweling are as good as the more costly sponges for the luxury of the daily "rub bath." A large Turkish towel wrung out iu either tepid or cold water will expedite the bathing process; and by all means provide a good sized towel for Ihe dry rub afterward. Turkish towels that come the size of crib sheets are most useful for this, and the luxu ry of keeping two linen bath sheets in daily use is known tq the initiated few.' After either a cold or a warm plunge bath the im mediate covering of the whole body in a large wrap of linen or the soft tufted cotton gives the sensation of luxury that some peo ple never know.
