THE CREAT MISSISSIPPI DUELIST.
In Monday's "Constitution" you
gave an account of tlio most noted
duelist in the Gulf States. Mc
Citing's first duel was in Kentucky ;
his second was with young Allen;
liis third was with Manlfcc, at Vioks
burg. They wcie mutual friends,
and while batlung in llio Mississippi
river below town, Mnnifce reproved
McClung for slapping a boy for
throwing mud upon him, whom
McClung had ducked. Returning
to town McClung challenged Mnni
fce and thoy fought next morning at
sunrise. McClung was Marshal of
Noith Mississippi during Tylei's
, Administration, and made a good
olllcer, abating his dissipated habits.
He organized a company in Colum
bus for the Mexican War, and at the
siege of Monterey was the first to
scale the wall, whcie ho stood long
enough to shoot a Mexican, but
which delay cost him tw o lingers.
He had imbued his command with
his desperation, and the fort sur
rendcicd. For this he was promoted
to Colonel, lie fought no duel after
the Mexican "War. His duels were
seven, in each of which he brought
down his man, not wounded, but
dead. Ho was the most desperate
and dangerous man I ever met, and
the most truly wi etched. About
1859 he wound up his career by
blowing his brains out at Jackson,
Miss. fCorr. Atlanta Constitution.
A JUDICIAL TROUNCING.
JUDGE GKEKXB SCOKES A SAN l'BAN
Judge Greene is a justice who re
cognizes the dignity of the Bench
and its autocratic jurisdiction over
the Bar. When he deems it at all
necessary he does not hesitate to
morally castigate an offending law
yer as though he were a schoolboy,
and Oakland lawyers have learned
to recognize this tact. Occasionally
a San Francisco lawyer comes over
to Oakland with some general opin
ions regarding "uiral justice." At
torney Burke has been recently
substituted as attorney for plaintiff
in place of E. D. "Wheeler in the
divorce suit of W. M. Page against
Emily Page. The case has been
ponding some time, and several
months ago Judge Greene ordered
the plaintiff to pay the defendant
alimony and counsel fees which now
amount to about S2000. The sum
frightened Page and he concluded
that he did not w ant to be divorced
so badly as he once did. Some
weeks ago the order, accoiding to
the statement of Attorney James
Crittenden, was vacated with the
understanding that it should later be
aigued on its merits. He charged
that Attorney Burke who was at
that time in coiut skipped across to
the County Clerk's ofllce and had
the suit dismissed, thereby saving
his client $2000. Upon tliis state
ment and an examination of Biukc,
Judge Green restoicd the order for
alimony and at the same time ad
ministered such a scathing rebuke
on the ground of unprofessional
conduct as few members of the Bar
ever received. His client will pro
bably be obliged to pay the alimony
as he has recently, fallen heir to a

A REMARKABLE CASE.
Uudcr the above heading the
JDoncaslcr Jleporler of July Gth,
1887, publishes tho following in its
Our readers may recall tho cir
cumstance of a young clerk, named
Arthur Uichold, falling insensible
on tho Woatley lAnc in this town
some time ago, and being picked
up, as ho continued pcifcctly help
less, and taken in a cab by two
gentlemen to the., olllcc of F. W.
Fisher, Esq; the solicitor who em
ployed him. On lestoriug him to
consciousness it 'was ascertained
that he was aflicted with what
seemed to be an incurable disease.
When he was able to speak he
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 olllcc he thought what this
might mean, and feared lie was
going to have a lit 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 ho had been
attacked. They questioned hinfl
and found that his piesent 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 stiangc disease, as described
by Mr. liichold, must be of inter
est both to sick and well. He had
noticed for several ycais previously,
in fact, that his eyes and face be
gan to have a yellow look; theie
was a sticky and unpleasant slime
on the gums and tcctii in the
morning; the tongue coated; and
the bowels so bound and costive
that it induced that most painful
and troublesome ailment tho piles.
He says theie was some pain in
the sides and back and a sense of
fulness on the right side, as though
the liver weic enlarging, which
proved to be the 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.
Bichold 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 steadlj
and deadly advance of the complaint,
which began in digestion and dys
pepsia. His story of how he went
fiom one physician to another in
scaich of a cure that Ins 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. He was appall
ed to think how he should'bc able to
live. But God laiscd up friends
who helped to keep the wolf from
the door. lie then went to the sea
side at "Walton-on-thc-Nnc, 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, 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 friend, who stiongly ad
vised him to tiya medicine which he
called JSEother Seiyel'R Curative
Syrup, saying it was genuine and
honest, and often cured when c cry
thing else had failed. Ho bought
a bottle of a chemist in Pimlico, and
began using it accoiding to tho di
rections, lie did this without faith
or hope, and the public, may there
fore judge of his biirpiise and plea
sine when after taking a few doses
he felt great relief. Ho could cat
better ; his food distressed him less ;
tho symptoms wo have named abated ;
the dark spots which had floated
before his eyes like smuts of soot,
gradually disappcaicd, and his
strength increased. Before this
time his knees would knock together
whenever he tried to walk. So en
couraged a as he now that ho kept
on using Mother Seigel'a Curative
Syrup until it ended in completely
In speaking of his wonderful re
covery Mr. Kichold says it made
him think of poor Robinson Cniboo,
and his dclivciance fiom captivity
on his island in the sea ; and added,
"But for Mother Soigcl's Curative
Syiup the glass would now bo
giowing over my grave."
Our readers can lest assuied of
of the strict tin th of all tho state
ments in this most icmarkablc case,
as Mr. llichold (now residing at
Swiss Cottage, Wnlton-on-the-Nazo)
belongs to one of the oldest and
most respected families in tho beau
tiful Ullage of Long Melford,
Suffolk, and his personal character
is attested b' so high an authority
as tho Rev. C. J. Maityn, rector
of that parish, besides other excel
lent names. Wo have deemed the
case of such inporlauco to the pub
lic as to justify us in giving this
short account of it in our columns.

POISON IN THE ASHES.
Many pcoplo believe that Nature
has somewhero a remedy for cvory
disease. So many and so terrible
aro tho ills' of life, and so slight the
pleasure wo get as time flics past,
that such a belief is tho least faith
we can show in a gracious and all
wlso Providence. A few remedies
but, alas, how fowl havo 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 tho ailment to
For example, Nervous Dyspepsia
Is a comparatively new disease,
growing out of the conditions of
modern life. It is n joint nffention
of the digestive organs and of the
nervous system. Thcso two wero
formerly treated as separate ail
ments, and it was loft for tho clear
sighted thinkers to prove that the
basis of this terrible and often fatal
complication lies chiefly in tho dis
ordered and depraved functions of
digestion and nutrition. Thoy
reasoned thus: "If we can induce
the stomach to do its work, and
stimulate the excretive organs to
drive out of the body tho poisonous
waste matters which remain 'after
the life-giving elements of the food
have been absorbed, we shall have
conquered Nervous Dyspepsia and
Nervous Exhaustion." .And they
were light. Knowing the infallible
power of Siegel's Syrup in less com
plicated though similar diseases,
they icsolved to test it fully in this.
To leave no ground for doubt, they
prescribed tho remedy in hundreds
of cases which had been pronounced
incurable with perfect success in
every instanco where their directions
as to living and diet were scrupu
lously followed. Nervous Dyspep
sia and Exhaustion moy 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 all ages. In no
country in the world are there so
many insane asylums filled to over
flowing, all resulting from this
alarming disease. Its leading symp
toms are these; freqilent or con
tinual headache ; a dull pain at the
base of the brain; bad breath;
nauseous eiuctations; the 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 oven when
weak from the need of it; sticky
and slimy matter on the teeth- or in
the mouth, especially on rising in
the 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
forebodings and fear.
All this terrible group Mother
Siegel's Cuiative Syrup removes 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, iip and strengthen the
Bj'8tem are sent upon their mission,
while all waste matters (the ashes of
life's fire) which, unrcmoved poison
and kill, are expelled from the body
through the bowels, kidneys, and
skin. The weak and piostrated
nerves arc quieted, toned, and fed
by tho puriflccl 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
