THE HEATHEN CHINESE AT HOME.
Maeaulny was right whon ho sjitd
an aero in Middlesex is worth a prin
cipality in Utopia". And to my mind
the poorest hamlet in tho United
States is better than a palace in
Pekinese surroundings. To know
heathenism ono must see it and feel
itjand hoar it, and if this knowledge
is not satisfactory, tho organs of
smell will speedily make know tho
existence of a very unwholesome
environment. 1 do not know which
is more disgusting, the vile lan
guage of tho people or tho worship
. paid to senseless images. The mis
sionary in active work cannot escape
these trials. After a mouth, and
sometimes longer, when every hour
of every day he hears the most ob
scene language that moitals ever
uttered, he Ilnd9 the strong need of
pure surroundings, and tho boat

During tho past few weeks L have
been hi many cities and villages,
and the villages arc unspeakably
. vile. How human beings can herd
together with the other animals and
escape psstilence, is always a mys
tery. They seem to be lost to erei v
sense of cleanliness. Men dressed
in silk, apparently indiffeient to tho
foul sinks by the very door-steps.
But this result is inevitable. Darken
the spiritual sense, and both moral
and physical degeneracy follow.
Never were any people more com
pletely under the power of supersti
tion. The first graduates in the
land as well as the poorest laborer
are dupes of ignoianl priests and
fortune tellers. The words of the
Apostle are exactly applicable to
this nation: "AM their lifetime

safely to shore, and by small boats

the loss was due to the Captain's
avaricjousness in not spending more
money in worshiping idols. The

of all their worship. Large temples

censesticks and wax caudles. The
vast millions in the empire go on in
the old way, simply because they
know not the truth. Thoy subscribe
money for idolatrous processions,
repairing and building temples,
chiefly because they believe they
will gain more money. In every
village the most showy, costly and
conspicuous building is tho temple,
either to their ancestors or some
idol. Every shon and hmisr in nrnnt
town must contiibutc something for
idol worship. I sold Gospels In a

temple dedicated to the heavenly
goddess. And yet, many who con

enjoy ono good meal a jonth. As
I pass by these largo hills I can see
women bearing their heavy burdens
of grass and sticks. They ascended
the steep slopes before tho sun
arose, and now must carry 100
pounds many miles in the hot sun,
and all this for less than ten cents.
But part of this hard earned sum
must go for incense-sticks. "Women

POISON IN THE ASHES.
Man people believe tlmt Nature
has.soiiicwhero a remedy for every
disease. So many and so terrible
nro tho ills of life, and so slight tho
pleasure wo got as time flies past,
that such a bolief is the least faith
we can show in a gracious and nll
wiso Providence. A few lomcdics
but, alas, how fowl have been
found. Others, so far, lie hidden
from human inquiry. Occasionally
death follows quickly on the heels of
tho evil an illustration of the dan
gerous character of the ailment to
For example, Nervous Dyspepsia
is a comparatively new disease,
growing out of the conditions of
modern lifo. It is a joint affection
of the digestive organs and of the
nervous bystcm. These two were
formerly treated as separate ail
ments, and it was left for the clear
sighted thinkers to prove that the
baMb of this terrible and often fatal
complication lies chiefly in tho dis
ordered and depraved functions of
digestion and nutrition. They
reasoned thus: ."If we can induce
the stomach to do its work, and
stimulate the excretive organs to
drive out of the body the poisonous
waste matters which remain after
the life-giving elements of tho food
have been absorbed, we Bhall have
conquered Nervous Dyspepsia and
Nervous Exhaustion." And they
were light. Knowing the infallible
power of Siogcl's Syiup 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 hundreds
of cases which had been pronounced
incurable with perfect success in
every instance where their directions
as to living and diet were scrupu
lously followed. Nervous Dyspep
sia and Exhaustion may almost be
called a peculiarly English disease.
To a greater or less extent half the
people of this country suffer from it
both sexes and ail 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 arc these; frequent or con
tinual headache ; a dull pain at' the
base of the brain ; bad breath ;
nauseous eructations ; the rising of
sour and nuii'rcut fluids n tho
throat; a sense of oppicssion and
faintness at the pit of the stomach,
"flatulence ; wakefulness and loss of
sleep; disgust with food oven when
weak from the need of it; sticky
and slimy matter on the teeth or in
the mouth, especially on rising in
tho morning; furred and coated
tongue; dull eyes; cold hands and
feet; constipation; dry or lough
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 Cuiative Syrup lenioves by
its positive, powerful, direct, yet
painless and gentle action upon the
functions of digestion and assimila
tion. Those elements of the food
that build up and strengthen the
system are sent upcyi their mission,

A REMARKABLE CASE.
Under tho above heading tho
Doncaatcr licporlcr of July Gth,
1887, publishes tho following in its
Our rendors inny recall tho cir
cumstance of a young clerk, named
Arthur Richold, falling insensible
on tho Wcatloy Lano in this town
some time ago, and being picked
up, as ho continued perfectly help
less, and taken in a cab by two
gentlemen to tho office of F. W.
Fisher, Esq; the solicitor who em
ployed him. Ou rcstoriug him to
consciousness it was asceilained
that ho was ailicted with what
seemed to be an incurable disease.
"When he was able to speak ho
said he 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 senses in tho soli
citor's olllco he thought what this
"might mean, and feared ho was
going to have a fit of illness, which
wo all know is a very dieadful
thing for a poor man with a faniity
to caro for.
With this in his mind he at onco
sought tho best medical . advlco,
telling the doctors how he had been
attacked. They questioned hitn'-i
and found that his present niafhdy
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 tho loss. of clear
friends by death. The coming on
of this strange disease, as described
by Mr. Richold, must bo of inter
est both to cick nnd well. He had
noticed for several years previously,
in fact, that his eyes and face be
gan to have a yellow look ; thcra '
was a sticky and unpleasant slime
on tho gums and 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 thero was 6ome pain in
the 6ides and back and a sense of
fulness on the right sido, as though
the liver were enlarging, which
fjroved to bo tho terrible fact.
The secretions from 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 fit of giddiness was nothing
more than a sign of the steadly
and deadly advaueo of the complaint,
which began in digestion and dys
pepsia. His story of how he went
from ono physician to another in
search of a oure that Ins wife and
little ones might not corao 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. He 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. He then went to tho sea
side at Walton-on-the-Naze, but
neither the change, nor the phy
sicians who treated him thnr. Hiil
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 tho
ways of Providenco, 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 friend, who strongly ad
vised him to try a medicine which ho
called Mother Seirrl's Curative
Syruj), 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 ;
tho dark spots which had floated
before his eyes like smuts of soot,
gradually disappeaied, and his
strength increased. Boforo this
timo'his knees would knock together
whenever he tried to walk. So en
couraged .vas ho now that he kept
on using Mother Ktigel's Curative
Syrup until it ended in completely
In speaking of his wonderful re
covery Mr. Richold says it made
him think of poor Robinson Crusoe,
and his deliverance fiom captivity
on his island in tho sea ; and added,
"But for Mother Soigel's Curative
Syrup tho grass would now bo
glowing over my grave,"
Our readers can lest assured of
of the strict truth of all th.e state
ments in this most remarkable case,
as Mr. Richold (now residing at
Swiss Cottage, Walton-on-thc-Nazo)
belongs to ono of tho oldest and
most respected families in tho beau
tiful village of Long Melford,
Suffolk, and his personal character
is attested by bo high an authority
as tho Rev, C. J. Mattyn, rector
of that pat iBh, besides other excel
lent names. Wo havo deemed tho
case of such iuportanco to the pub
lic as to justify us in giving this
Bhort account of it in
January 13, 1888.
