OHASED BY Ati ELEPHANT.
Mr. IuglU nf Bollord rrccntly hail
a narrow escape. This gentleman,
"wlillo attending lo his duties a shoit
time ago, was chased by the Mutu
kull rogue. The animal was among
a Small clump of 1roc cloo lo the
jungle path by which Mr. Inglis
had to pass, who, alter n careful
survey ot the "monaieh," dared to
throw 9toncs at him. Tho ihst one
missed, and 011I3 caused the animal
to cock his cars to catch the slightest
sound. The second went strnighler
and hit him right in the eye, which
the elephant a el mm lodged with a
salaam-like moM-mcnl with Ids
trunk, accompanied with a terrible
roar of anor, and made straight for
his assailant, and charged at a fu
rious pace. Mr. Inglis, however,
was too clever for him and ran very
fast faster, we hear, than he ever
did before but in suddenly turn
ing a corner lound a huge tiee he
stumbled and fell, the elephant Close
on him with outstretch trunk, the
point of which at one lime touched
Mr. Inglis coat, lie had also his
forefoot already raised lo crush
hiui, but the animal's head being
caught at tins instant by the tend
rills of a climbing plant which had
suspended itself fiom the branches
above, he tinned away and lied,
leaving Mr. Inglis rather fright
ened, but willi no limb broken. The
rogue is a great terror on the hills.
COST OF A FUGGY DAY TO LONDON.
The cost of a single day of fog lo
the gas consumers of London may
be gathered from figures compiled
from oflicial sources, says the Lon
don "Standard." Wednesday was
a day of'dense and continuous fog,
necessitating the extensive use of
gas, and on that day tho quantity of
gas supplied to London by the Gas
light and Coke Company amounted
to 103,OC4,000 cubic feet or .'!."),
000,000 cubic feet in excess of the
quantity sent out by the same com
pany in the corresponding day of
last year. The above excess in the
supply of gas would represent the
supply lo a town of from 10,000 lo
12,000 inhabitants for a whole year.
In addition to the quantity supplied
by the company mentioned, theic
weic supplied by the other two
Mctiopolitan Companies the South
Metropolitan and Commercial
about forty-five million cubic feet,
making a total consumption for
London on a day of fog of neaily
one hundred and fifty million cubic
feet. Approximately the value of
this gas was i'21,000, of which cost
from 7,000 to '8,000 was directly
duo to the fog. In 1885, on a day
of similar fog, a great strain was
put upon the companies.
A PAUrJiR'S DYING KEQUFST.
An amusing and yet pathetic in
cident iu what the poet Gray called
" the short and simple annals of
the poor," is told by Mr. John J. 11.
Micklcjohn, one of the Inspectors
of the Poor, at Sherwick, Shetland
Islands. He bays that borne time
ago an old woman, named Baibaia
Smith, came under the notice of the
Board. She was exliemcly ill, and
it did not look likely that she would
long need care of any Kind. She
did not reside on the main land, bu
on a small island a few miles distant
and there being no parochial institu
tions in that place, Barbara neces
saiily occupied the position of a
pauper living out. The trouble
from which she suffered dated back
many years. In better and moie
prosperous days she had in some
way laid the foundation for Chionic
Indigestion and Dyspepsia, and out
of this had sprung other complaints
as age and bodily inihmities crept
apace upon her.
Barbata was not ignorant, albeit
she had fallen into poveity. In ear
lier life she somehow obtained the
advantage of a fair education, and
this, added to native shrewdness,
enabled her to use good judgment in
respect to her own situation and
state of health. Although she had
long suffered fiom asthma and a
bronchial affection, Barbara was
wise enough lo see lhat these ail
ments aiose from the disordered
stomach and digestion, and that if
the mam trouble could be cured the
othors would boon leave her. It is
prohablo that her disease began as
others do, with the usual symptoms :
headaches, bad breath, the rising of
sour fluids in the throat, oppression
and faintness at the pit of the stom
ach, loss of sleep, coated tongue,
dull oyes, bad taste in the mouth,
1X.0., and finally became chronic and
hopeless through her not being able
lo find auy lemedy. The Inspector
states that she had been under med
ical treatment for yens, but to 110
effect. In this btrait she one day
made the following touching appeal
to tho Inspector: "I have been
swallowing medicines for months.
They do mo no good. I tun going
on from worso to worse. I can en
dure it no JoiiKcr. I feel that iu n
Week or two 1 Shall be dead. Thcro
Is otic last i oquest 1 would make of
you: gio mo a bottle of Mother
SoigeH's Curative Syrup; it is my
only hope. If it proes a failuie
and does me no good I will die in
peace, and make no more expense
to the palish."
It seems she had got hold of one
of Mother Scigcl's Almanacks and
read of the great cures wrought by
the Syiup in cases like hers.
The Board pitied tho poor lone
woman and granted her petition, be
lieving, however, the syrup would
provo as useless as the other medi
cines she had already taken. What
was their astonishment to find, in the
course of a few days, that she had
not only been able to get out of bed,
but to move about outside the house,
and had taken journeys to a consid
erable distance, and was actually en
joying belter health than since she
was first taken ill. The asthma and
bronchitis, which were no more than
symptoms of her true disease (indi
gestion and dyspepsia), rapidly
abated, and it now seems that Bar
bara will soon bo as hale and hem ty
as the Inspector himself, and be one
of the hosts of living witnesses to
the power of Mother Scigcl's Syrup
to save the thousands who weic just
ready to perish.
Mother Scigcl's Curative Sryup is
for sale by all chemists and medi
cine vendors, and by the pioptic

A REMARKABLE CASE.
Under the above heading llic
JJoncmtcr licporlcr of July Glh,
1887, publishes llto following in its
Our renders may rconll tho cir
cumstance of a, young clerk, named
Arthur llichold, fnlling insensible
on tho Wcatlcy Lime in this town
some time ngo, and being picked
up, ns ho continued perfectly help
less, nnd taken in a cab by two
gentlemen to the olllcc of F. W.
Fisher, Esq ; the solicitor who em
ployed him. On restoiing him lo
consciousness it was ascertained
that he was alllctcd with what
seemed to be an incurable disease.
Vlien he was able to speak ho
said ho had been to his dinner and
and was on his way back to his
work, when suddenly his head was
in a whiil and he fell in the street
like a man who is knocked down.
On coming to his senses in the soli
citor's olllce lie thought what this
might mean, and feared ho was
going lo have a lit of illness, which
wo all know is a very dreadful
tiling for a poor man with a family
to care for.
With this in his mind lie at once
sought tho best medical advice,
telling the doctors how he had been
attacked. They questioned him
and found that his picsent malady
was exhaustion of the nervous sys
tem resulting from general debility,
indigestion, and dyspepsia of a
chronic nature. This in turn had
been caused by coiilincinent to his
desk and grief at the loss of dear
friends by death. The coming on
of this strange disease, as dcsciibcd
by Mr. Kicliold, must be of inter
est both" to sick and well. Ho had
noticed for several years previously,
in fact, that his eyes and face be
gan to have a yellow look; theic
was a sticky and unpleasant slime
on the gums nnd teeth in the
morning ; the tongue coated ; and
the bowels so bound and costive
that it induced that most painful
and troublesome ailment the piles.
He says there was some pain in
the sides and back and a sense of
fulness on the right side, as though
the liver .were enlarging, which
proved to be the terrible fact.
The secretions fiom the kidneys
would be scanty and high-coloured,
with a kind of gritty or sandy
deposit after standing.
These things had troubled Mr.
llichold a long time, and after his
fall in the street he clearly perceived
that the fit of giddiness was nothing
more than a sign of the steadly
and deadly advance of the complaint,
which began in digestion and dys
pepsia. His story of how he went
from one physician to another in
seal eh of a cute that Ins wife antl
little ones might not come to want is
very pathetic and touching. Finally
he became too ill lo keep his situa
tion and had to give it up. This
was a sad calamity. He was appall
ed to think how he should be able lo
live. But God raised up friends
who helped to keep the wolf from
the door. He then went to the sea
side at Walton-on-the-Naze, but
neither tho change, nor the phjr
sicians who treated him there, did'
any good. All being without avail
he visited London, with a sort of
vague hope that some advantage
might happen to him in the metro
polis. This was in October, 1885.
How wonderful, indeed, are the
ways of Providence, which dashes
down our highest hopes and then
helps us when we least expect it.
While in London he stated his con
dition to a fiiend, who strongly ad
vised him to try a medicine which ho
called Mother Seifrl's Ctirativo
Syrup, saying it was genuine and
honest, and often cured when cver'
thing else had" failed. He bought
a bottle of a chemist in Fimlico, arid
began using it accot ding to tho di
rections. Ho did this without faith
or hope, and the public, may there
fore judge of his surpriso and plea
sure when after taking a few doses
he felt great relief. Ho could cat
better ; his food distressed him less ;
the symptoms we have named abated ;
the daik spots which had floated
before his eyes like smuts of soot,
gradually disappeared, and his
strength increased. Before this
timo his knees would knock together
wlicnovcr lie trietl to walk, bo en
couraged .vus he now Hint he kept
on using Mother HeUjel's Curative
Syrup until it ended in completely
In speaking of his wonderful re
covery Mr. Kicliold says it made
him think of poor Kobiuson Crusoe,
and his deliverance fiom captivity
on his island in the sea; and added,
"But for Mother Seigel's Curative
Syrup the grass would now bo
growing over my grave."
Our readers can lest assured of
of the strict truth of all the state
ments in this most remarkable case,
as Mr. Kicliold (now residing at
Swiss Cottage, Walton-on-the-Nazo)
belongs to ono of tho oldest and
most respected families in tho beau
tif nl villapo of Long Melfor.fl,
Suffolk, and his personal character
is attested by so high an authority
as the Kev. C. J, Martyn, rector
of that paiish, besides other excel
lent names. Wo havo deemed tho
case of such inportanco to the pub
lic as to justify us in giving this
short account of it in our columns,
