A Word About Catarrh.
'It-is the mucous membrane, that wonderful
semi-fluid envelope surrounding the delicate tissues
of the air and food passages, that Catarrh makes
Its stronghold. Once established, it eats into the
very vitals, and renders lifebuta long-drawn
breath of misery and disease, dulling the sense of
hearing, trammeling the power of speech, destroy
ing the faculty of smell, tainting the breath, and
killing the refined pleasures of taste. Insidiously,
by creeping from a simple cold in the head, it as
saults the membranous lining and envelops the
bones, eating through the delicate coats and caus
ing inflammation, sloughing and death. Nothing
short of total eradication will secure health to the
patient, and all alleviatives are simply procrasti
nated sufferings, leading to a fatal termination.
Sanford's Radical Cure, bv inhalation and bv in
ternal administration, has never failed; even when
the disease has made frightful inroads on delicate
constitutions', hearing, smell and taste have been
iwivtiwi, ana tne disease tnorouguir urtven out."
Each packet contains one bottle of the Radical
Cuss, one box of Catarrhal Solvent and an Im
proved Inhaler, with treatise and directions, and
is sold by all druggists for $1.00.

PROGRESS OF A 6RE1T KEPOBDI,
Public office ia a public trust. Daring the
year ended on June 30th last 3,043 postofiica
were established and 1,500 discontinued; 6,
863 appointments to postmasterships were
made upon resignations and commissions
expired, 2,584 upon removals and suspen
sions, 483 on changes of names and sites and
580 on deaths of incumbents. The total
number of appointments of postmasters of
all grades made daring 1885, 1886 and 1SS7
was 45,373, while the total number of post
offices of all grades in operation on July 1st
last was 55,157. in other words, the entire
postal service, except 9,784 offices many of
little if any importance has been reroganized,
or, as many have reason to think, disorgan
ized since June 30, 1884.
The Pennsylvania Republican cenvention
said of this reform administration: "The
only energy they have exhibited has been in
the displacement of experienced officers with
out cause, aud in direct violation of their
civil service pledges." And the New York
Tribune forcibly observes: A party which
calls this reform shows no respect for the
intelligence of the people. A public leader
or professional reformer who tries to make
it appear that such absorbing zeal in turning
out tried and appointing nntried men is con
sistent with an honest desire for reform
sacrifices his claim to be heard as a sincere
and candid advocate of better government.
Assuming that the President has made only
as many changes in all other departments as
in the postal service, he has turned out an
experienced and worthy man and put in an
inexperienced partisan for every four minutes
of his offiaial time since he became President.
No wonder the mugwumps are getting dis
couraged. They have been badly taken in.
A California woman has aued for a divorce
from her husband because for eighteen years
hs has gone to bed with his boots on.
Henry George thinks the United Labor
party cannot afford to offend the farmers.
Does he suppose that the farmers are pleased
with his ideas about land?
The citizens of Westport and Norwalk, in
view of the recent grade crossing slaughter
at ''Five Mile River," have addressed a letter
to Governor Lounsbury requesting him to "be
present at a hearing before the railroad com
missioners, which is to be held in Westpoit
on the 24th, upon the general subject of
grade crossings. This is a good idea. Every
body ought to be interested in the abolition
of the death-traps.
The suit of the Master Pl&mbers' associa
tion of New York against the walking dele
gate who, in the name of the Knights of
Labor, ordered a strike against one of their
members, and then offered to compromise
first on payment of $1,509, then $1,000, then
$500, and finally $300, will be watched with
interest. . The $300 demanded was paid under
protest and the plumbers take the ground
that this was blackmail. They are right, and
the law will probably support them.
One carious and probably uncontemplated
consequence of the Georgia Glenn bill is
pointed out. Under the statutes of Georgia
a person who has seven-eighths or more of
white blood is accounted white. But under
the social usages of Georgia a person who has
the slightest taint of negro blood is treated
as a negro. Under the Glenn bill if It were
to become a law, pupils who are Beven
eighths white would have to be excluded
from Atlanta university and other similar
institutions, or subject their teachers to the
penalty of the chain gang. But these people
would not be received into Athens university
or any other institutions designed for white
students. The result would be to deprive
them of an education anywhere.

A decision which has just been rendered
in a Georgia court is a good thing for the
South. The southern farmer is accustomed
each spring to obtain a loan on his land to
pay for his seed and the other costs of plant
ing. This loan lie is usually able to repay ia
the fall; bat the next year the same thine;
must be repeated and so nothing accumulates
in the bank from successive harvests. There
are exceptions to this habit, but it is still
the general rule. The loan companies which
abound in every southern city take advan
tage of the farmer's extremity to charge the
most exorbitant rates of interest. Twelve
and fifteen per cent, on good land mortgage
is by no means nnusual. In addition to this
many of the- companies have been accus
tomed to withhold from fifteen to twenty
per cent, of the amount loaned under the
device of commissions for negotiating it.
But now the court decides that this is usur
ious and illegal, and that all that can be re
covered is the amonnt of the loan and the
legal interest, but not the so-called commis
The Railroad and Engineering Journal
gives what it believes to be the practical out
come of the experiments made by the Penn
sylvania railroad in the use of petroleum for
fuel. Thomas Urquhart, a Scotohman, who
has for several years been superintendent of
the Graxt-TzarlUin railroad In southeastern
Russia, where there is little fuel except oil,
and what there is is dear, while oil is abund
ant and cheap, has developed the first suc
cessful method of using petroleum in loco
motives. Last year the Pennsylvania rail
road sent a man to Russia to learn all he
could of Mr. Urquhart's system, and on his
return it was applied to a locomotive. Oil,
steam and air are thrown into the fire cham
ber in a fine spray. There is no smoke, and
of course no cinder. All the fireman has to
do is to regulate by a hand wheel the supply
of oil flowing into the injecting apparatus.
The Russian railroad has one hundred and
forty-three locomotives equipped for burn
ing oil, and it is without doubt a success in
Russia. But the price of coal and oil here
one pound of oil equalling two of coal in the

Geaeral Hancock 1st Battle.
From Mrs. Hancock's Book ef Reminiscences.!
The battle of Williamsburg was Hancock's
first triumphant success. Ho wrote to his
wife; "On this occasion my men behaved
beautifully, and captured the first color yet
taken. My loss was 126 in killed and
wounded a great number, showing hard
and determined fighting." An interval of
some months occured between Williamsburg
and Antietam. Gen. Hancock was engaged
in every battle up to the time when the
order was issued relieving Gen. MeClellan
and appointing Gen. Burnside to the com
mand of the army of the Potomac. In a let
ter to Mrs. Hancock he said: "The army
are not satisfied with the change, and con
sider the treatment of MeClellan most un
gracious and inopportune. Yet I do not
sympathize in the movement going on to
resist ths order. 'It is useless,' I tell the
gentlemen around me. 'We are serving no
one man: we are serving our country.' ''
After Chanoellorsville he wrote: "The day
before the fight Hooker said to a general
officer! 'God Almighty could not prevent
me from winning a victory to-morrow.'
Pray, could we expect a victory after that?
He also told Mr. Lincoln that he would
either win a victory or be in hell. The
president told him to 'carry plenty of
water along.' Success cannot come to us
through such profanity. I regret I cannot
ask now for leave; no general officer is
allowed a leave of absence. Gen. Couch
asked for one, but was refused. I under

rank at this' time would be unpalatable.

On the morning of July 3, 1863, General
Hancock telegraphed from the battle-field
(as was his custom each day while the action
lasted'). "I am all right so far." A few
hours afterward he sent a second dispatch,
while lying upon the battle-neld desperately
and presumably fatally wounded: "I
am severely wounded, not mortally. Join
me at once in Philadelphia. Parker and
Miller, I fear, are gone up""
"The surgeon obieoted to the wording of
this dispatch," writes Mrs. Hancock, "and
asked permission to send one conveying in
telligence of his critical condition, but Gen
eral Hancock would not permit the change
in view of the long journey before her, and
the unhappmess that would result from
knowing the full truth. After reaching
Philadelphia the heat was found insupporta
ble, and it was desirable to have my husband
removed to his father's home at Norristown,
but thirty days elapsed before his surgeons
considered it prudent to permit the change. '

healing and his discomfort increased rather
than diminished." It was not till some time

The Kin In History.
From the Chicago Tribune.
There was an old belief that unless a
maiden was kissed under the mistletoe at
Christmas she would not be married during
the ensuing year.
When Fox was contesting the hard-won
seat at Westminster the beautiful Duchess of
Devonshire offered to kiss all who voted for
the great statesman.
In the ceremonial of betrothal a kiss has
played an important part in several nations.
A nuptial kiss in church, at the conclusion
of tbe marriage service, is solemnly enjoined
by the York Missal and the Sarum Manual.
The beautiful Lady Gordon, whea the
ranks of the Scottish regiments had been
sadly thinned by cruel Badajos and Sala
manca, turned recruiting sergeant, and to
, tempt tbe gallant lads placed ths recruiting
shilling in her lips, whence each who would
might take it with his own.
In Finland, according to Bayard Taylor,
the women resent as an insult a salute upon
the lips. A Finish matron, hearing of our
English custom of kissing, declared that did
her husband attempt such a liberty she
would treat him with such a box on the ears
that he should not readily forget.
In Wesley's journal, dated June 16, 1758,
is given the following description of a duel
between two officers at Limerick: "Mr. B.
proposed firing at twelve yards, but Mr. J.
said, 'No, six is enough.' So they kissed
one another (poor farce!) and before they
were five paces asunder both fired at the in
stant." The code of Justinian says "that if a man
betrothed a woman by a kiss and either par
ty died before marriage the heirs were enti
tled to half the donations and the survivor
to the other half; but if the contract was
made without the solemn kiss the whole of
the espousal gifts must be restored to the
donors and their heirs-at-law."
The Mohammedans, on their pious pil
grimage to Mecca, kiss the sacred black
stone and the four corners of the kaaba.
The Romish priest kisses the aspergillum,
and Palm Sunday the palm. Kissing the
Pope's toe was a fashion introduced by one
of the Leos, who it is said had mutilated his
right hand, and was too vain to expose the
In Iceland kissing had deterred penalties
of great severity. For kissing another man's
wife, with or without her consent, the pun
ishment of exclusion, or its pecuniary equiv
alent, was awarded. A man rendered him
self liable for kissing an unmarried woman
under legal guardianship without her con
sent, and if the lady consented the law re
quired that every kiss should be wined out
by a line of three marks equivalent to one
hundred aud forty ells of wadmal a Quanti
ty sufficient to furnish a whole ship's crew
with pilot jackets.
Iu Kussia the eastern salutation is a kiss.
Each member of the family salutes the oth
er; chance acquaintances on meeting kiss;
principals kiss their employes; the general
kisses his officers; the officers kiss their sol
diers; the Czar kisses his family, retinue,
court aud attendants, and even his officers
on parade, the sentinels at the palace gates,
and" a select party of private soldiers prob
ably elaborately prepared for this "royal sa

Home, in his quaint old "TableBook,"
gives an account of a curious old kissing
festival held in Ireland: "Easter Monday
several hundred young persons of the town
and neighborhood of Potsferey, county
Down, resort, dressed in their best, to a
pleasant walk near the town, called 'The
Waller.' The avowed object of each per
son is to see the fun, which consists in the
men kissing the females without reserve,
whether married or single. This mode of
salutation is quite a matter of course; it is
never taken amiss, nor with much show of
coyness. The female must be ordinary in
deed who returns home without having re
ceived at least a dozen hearty kisses."

It affords me pleasure to give you this report of
the cure of our little grandchild by your Cuticura

boil. We poulticed it, but all to no purpose. About
tuner sores lormeo. ne men naa two or mem on

discharging a great deal. This was his condition at
twenty-two months old when I undertook the care
of htm, his mother having died when he was a little
more than a year old of consumption (scrofula of
course). He could walk a little, but could not get
up if he fell down and could nqt move when in bed,
having no use of his hands. I immediately com
menced wun ine uuueura jttemeaies, using tne
Cuticura and Cuticura Soap f reelr.and when he had
taken one bottle of the Cuticura Resolvent, his head
was completely cured and he was improved in every
way. We were very much encouraged and con
tinued the use of the Remedies for a year and a
half. One sore after another healed, a bony matter
forming in each one of these five deep ones just be
fore healing, which would finally grow loose and
were taken out; then they would heal rapidly. One
of these ugly bone formations I preserved. After
taking a dozen and a half bottles he was complete
ly cured, and is now. at the ace of six vears. a
strong and healthy child. The scars on his hands
must always remain; his hands are strong, though
we once feared he would never be able to use them.
All that physicians did for him did him no good. All
