There ought to bo :i statute in
every State severely punishing this
pinetice, or lather an infliction of
blows on the head, so common in
families and schools of inferior
grade. A recent investigation of
medical recouls reveals iifty-onc
cases of serious injury to children
from "boxing" or "cuffing" on the
ear in sonic cases chronic and ulti
matcl' resulting in fatal brain tlo
sease, deafness, insanity, etc. It
would be impossible to discipline all
offenders, but much might bo done
by special care in giving notice of
the law and penalty thiough the
newspapers and by circulars distri
buted by Boaid of Health inspect
ors, and by instructions to the po
lice promptly to nriost parents or
others seen cuffing children as
thoy may bo seen at all hours of the
day in certain regions of every city.
THE GROSS OF THE LEGION OF HONOR.
The Cross of the Legion of Honor,
with its lit of red ribbon, has liitli
eito constituted the principal aim
and ambition of every Frenchman's
life. According to the statutes of
the order, which was founded by
Napoleon I, it can only be confetred
on civil and military government
officials of every rank after twenty
years' of meritoiious service, on
persons who have rendered some re
markable service cither to the indus
try, commerce or art of the nation,
and lastly, on individuals who by
some notable deed of valor or con
spicuous act of service to the State
have rendered themselves worthy of
receiving this luuch-coverted re
ward. The statutes, moreover,
provide that the number of the Of
ficial Gazette, which contain the
nomination of the new chevalier,
shall likewise state distinctly the
reason for which the cross has been
conferred. Of late years, however,
this late regulation has been some
what neglected, and the cnumcra
tion of the causes for which the de
coration has been granted is slurred
over and united to the rather elas
tic phrase "services exccptionnels."
The order is composed of live classes,
ranging from grand cordon to chev
alier, and, except in the case of
foreigners, carries with it an annual
pension. The members, beside en
joying special consideiation and
precedence, aie entitled to numer
ous small privileges, includinsc the
military salute and the attendance
of a detachment of troops at their
funeials. It may be added that the
Legion of Honor is essentially a de
mocratic order. In its ranks are to
be found Generals, Senators, minis
ters, postmen, policemen, simple
sailors and soldiers' doctors, artists,
priests and even Sisters of Mercy
who have distinguished themselves
in the ambulances during the war.
Until recently the public at large,
although aware that a vast amount
of corruption existed in ollicial and
political ciiclcs, weic convinced that
the Chanccllerie of the Legion of
Honor -was above suspicion. It
may easily be imagined, therefore,
how great the shock has been
throughout the country when the
disgraceful acts of General Caff ai el
and his accomplices became known.
The scandal has constituted a se
vere blow to the national pride, and
is bitterly lescnted not only hy
those who are already members o'f
the order, but also by the millions
of Frenchmen who hope to attain to
the dignity thereof at some future
day. fN. Y. World.

THE DAILY BULLETIN -JL
most popular paper published,
A REMARKABLE CASE.
Under the nbovo heading the
Doncastcr llcporler of July Gth,
1SS7, publishes the following m its
Our readers may recall the cir
cuinstanco of a young clerk, named
Arthur Hichokl, falling insensible
on the "vYeatley Lane in this town
some time ago, and being picked
up, as he continued perfectly help
less, and taken in a cab by two
gentlemen to the oflleo of F. "W.
Fisher, Esq; the solicitor who em
ployed him. On restoring him to
consciousness it was ascertained
that he was aflicled with what
seemed to be an incurable disease.
"When he was able to bpeak 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 whirl and he fell in the street
like a man who is knocked down.
On coming to his icuscs in the soli
citor's ollicc he thought what this
might mean, and feared he was
going to have a tit of illness, which
we all know
is a very dreadful
thing for a poor
man with a family
to care for.
"With this in his mind he at once
sought the 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 confinement to his
desk and grief at the loss of dear
friends by death. The coming on
of this strange disease, as described
by Mr. Richolcl, must be of inter
est both to sick and well. He had
noticed for several years previously,
in fact, that his eyes and face be
gan to have a yellow look; thcie
was a sticky and unpleasant slime
on the gums and teeth in the
morning ; the tongue coated ; and
the bowels so bound and costive
that it induced that most painful
and tioublesome ailment the piles,
lie 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 fioin the kidneys
would be scanty and high-coloured,
with a kind of gritty or sandy
deposit after standing.
These things had troubled Mr.
Richold a long time', and after his
fall in the street he clearly perceived
that the lit 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
search of a cine that his wife and
little ones might not come to want is
very pathetic and touching. Finally
he became too ill to keep his situa
tion and had to give it up. This
was a sad calamity. lie was appall
ed to think how he should be able to
live. But God raised up friends
who helped to keep the wolf from
the door. Ho then went to the sea
side at "Walton-on-the-Kaj'.e, but
neither the change, nor the phy
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, arc the
ways of Providence, which dashes
down our highest hopes and then
helps us when we least expect it.
While in London he slated his con
dition to a friend, who stiongly ad
vised him to try a medicine which he
called Mother A&iyrl's Curative
Syrup, saying it was genuine and
honest, and often cured when every
thing else had failed. He bought
a bottle of a chemist in Pimlico, and
began using it according to the di
rections. He did this without faith
or hope, and the public, may there
fore judge of his surprise 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 dark spots which had floated
before his eyes like smuts of boot,
gradually disappeaied, and his
strength increased. Before this
time his knees would knock together
whenever lie tried to walk. So en
couraged ivas he now that he kept
on using Mother .Meiycl'a Curative
Syrup until it ended in completely
In speaking of his wonderful re
covery Mr. Rlchold says it made
him think of poor Robinson Crusoe,
and his dcliveiance fiom captivity
on his island in the sea; and added,
"But for Mother Soigel's Curativo
Syrup the gias3 would now bo
glowing over my grave."
Our readers can rest assured of
of the strict truth of all the state
ments in this most lcmarkable case,
as Mr. Bichold (now residing at
Swiss Cottage, AValton-on-the-Nazo)
belongs to one of the oldest and
most respected families in tho beau
tiful villugo of Long Melford,
Suffolk, and hi personal character
is attested by so high an authority
as tho Rev. C, J. Maityn, rector
of that )atish, besides other excel
lent names. We have deemed the
case of such inporlanco to tho pub
lic as to Justify us in giving this
short account ot it in our columns.

Jinny people believe that Nature
has soincwhcro a remedy for every
disease. So ninny and so terrible
arc the ills of life, and so slight the
pleasure wc get ai time flics past,
that such a belief is tho least faith
we can show hi a gracious and all
wise Providence. A few remedies
but, alas, how few I have been
found. Others, so far, lie hidden
from human inquiry. Occasionally
death follows quickly on tho heels of
the evil an illustration of tho dan
gerous character of tho ailment to
For example, Nervous Dyspepsia
is a comparatively new disease,
growing out of the conditions of
modern life. It is a joint affection
of the digestive organs and of the
nervous system. These two were
foimcrly treated as separate nil-
nicnts, and it was left for the clear
sighted thinkers to prove that the
basis of this terrible and often fatal
complication lies chiefly in the dis
ordered and depraved functions of
digestion and nutrition. They
reasoned thus : "If wo can induco
the stomach to do its work, and
stimulate the excretive organs to
'drive out of tho body the poisonous
waste matters which remain after
the life-giving elements of tho food
hac been absoibed, we shall have
conquered Nervous Dyspepsia and
Nervous Exhaustion." And they
were right. Knowing the infallible
power of Siegel's Syrup in less com
plicated though similar diseases,
they resolved to test it fully in this.
To leave no ground for doubt, they
prescribed the remedy in hundieds
of ca,scs which had been pionounccd
incurable with perfect success in
every instance where their directions
as to living and diet were scrupu
lousby followed. Nervous Dyspep
sia and Exhaustion may almost bo
called a peculiarly English disease.
To a greater or less extent half the
people of this country suffer from it
both sexes and all ages. In no
country in the world arc there so
many insane asylums filled to over
flowing, all resulting from this
alarming disease. Its leading symp
toms are these; frequent or con
tinual headacho ; a dull pain at the
base of the brain; bad breath;
nauseous eructations ; tho rising of
sour and pungent fluids to the
throat; a sense of oppression and
faintness at the pit of the stomach,
flatulence ; wakefulness and loss of
sleep ; disgust with food even when
weak from the need of it; sticky
and slimy matter on the l,eeth or in
the mouth, especially on rising in
the morning; furred and coated
tongue; dull eyes; cold hands and
feef; constipation ; dry or rough
skin; inability to fix the mind on
any labour or calling continuous at
tention; and oppressive and sad
foiebodings and fear.
All this terrible group Mother
Siegel's Curative Syrup removes by
its positive, powerful, direct, yet
painless and gentle action upon the
lunctions of digestion and assimila
tion. Those elements of the food
that build up and strengthen the
system are sent upon their mission,
while all waste matters (the a,shes of
life's fire) which, unremoved poison
and kill, are expelled from the body
through the bowols, kidneys, and
skin. The weak and prostrated
nerves are quieted, toned, and fed
by the puiified blood. As the re
sult, health, with its enjoyments,
blessings and power, returns to the
sufferer, who has perhaps abandoned
"all hopo of ever seeing another well
