THE DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPfl PHILADELPHIA, THURSDAY, APRIL 13, 18 H.
IEARTKEDI5 AFFAIR. A Husband Throws nnrntnff Benxlne Upon Hi Wife' Clothing Five Hours of Intense Agony, and then Death. ' On Saturday evening last. says the Cleveland Herald, occurred one of the most frightful caw of burning to death which It Is possible to ima gine. Andrew Krauss purchased a email vial of benzine, for the purpose of applying it to ex terminate some vermin which infeBted his bed room. As soon as he arrived at home he went into his room, and, with the fluid In a small open vessel, poured it on the bedstead in several places. In passing around he stopped to ex amine whether it had produced an effect, and holding the candle which he carried too near the Inflammable substance,lt took lire and blazed up gently. A little daughter was in the room with him at the same time, and discovering the fire began to scream. The mother, who was out of doors at the time, tearing the cries of her child, hastened to the house. The father in turning around either touched his candle to the fluid in the vessel or dropped a spark upon it, when it broke out in a fearful blaze. He rushed to the door and threw the burning liquid out just as his wife was entering, the whole of it falling upon her cloth ing. The awful realization of this act breaking suddenly upon his mind, he was so confused that he did not know what it was wisest to do, and began with his hands endeavoring to scrape down the flames from the body. Two gentlemen hearing the cries from the street and seeing the flames ran to her assist ance, but before they could render any aid every particle of clothing was burned from her body except a small hand passing around her waist. He was taken into the house, her clothes and hair burned off, and her whole body in a perfect ciiep a ghastly spectacle indeed. Medical remedies were applied, but nothing seemed adequate to relieve her suffering. She was tor tured by the most distressing agony, to which she gave expression In wild screams, until flf teen m'nutcs after 12, when death relieved her. Her husband was frightfully burned about the arms in bis desperate endeavors to save the life of the woman, but seems unmindful of It, while he mourns the death of bis wife, declaring con tinually that he, himself, has killed her. K1U8ICAL AWD DRAMATIC. The City Amusements. At the Chesnot Mrs. E. E. Lewis' play of The Marquis will be represented this evening. To-morrow evening Mr. Peter E. Abel, the popular business manager, will have a benefit, when Morris Barnet'B comedy of The Serious Family will be given. Mrs. Abel will also appear and sing Kuehen's ballad of "Heaven hath shed a tear." Mr. Abel has such a host of warm personal friends that a crowded house may safely be predicted for to-morrow evening. On Monday next Mr. W. S. Fredericks, the stage manager, will have a benefit. On this occasion Kaphlno Lacy's drama of The Two Friends and Buckstone's comedy of Married Life will be performed. Mr. Fredericks is one of the veterans of the stage, and his experience, taste, and ability have contributed very much to the success of the Chesnut since he has been connected with it. His many friends in this city should endeavor to make his benefit a sub stantial compliment. At the Aucn Lester Wallack's play of Rose dale will be performed this evening. To-morrow evening is set apart for the benefit of Miss Lizzie Price, who will appear as "Lady Isabel" and "Madame Vine" in the drama of East Lynne. The performance will conclude with Mr. Craig's burlesque of Homeo and Julitl.

Hcmple is announced for Saturday evening. At the walnut tne pantomime ot Trie Three Hunchback s, with Mad'Jle Bonfantl, Moe and Goodrich, the skaters, and a variety of other interesting features, will be performed this evening.

To morrow will be a family night, when special arrangements will be made for the entertain ment ef ladies, children, and family parties, and an unusually attractive series of performances will be given, in which the entire company of one hundred artists will appear. The programme will embrace pantomime, Dutch comedy, min strelsy, comic and sentimental vocalism, local sketches, and a great variety of other amusing features, which will follow each other in rapid succession eo as to maintain an unbroken thread of interest. The great popularity of the "family nights" at the American has encouraged Mr. Fox to exert himself to make them as inte resting as possible, and all the resources of the establishment are brought in play far the delec tation of those who attend. Nothing is per mitted to occur either before or behind the cur tain that will offend the most fastidious, and the performances to-morrow evening will be, as those of the past have been, of a most enjoyable cha racter. On Saturday there will be a family matinee. At the Arch Street Opera House Mr. E. N.

If a man were asked why he Insured his life, the question would be regarded as a very simple one and scarcely requiring an answer, for the reason that the advantages of life Insurance are so univer sally admitted that to doubt its utility would be to fly in the very face of. reason and common sense. Now, while we find so many persons not only willing, but anxious, to make provision for the family or friends who are to be left behind, how many thou sands there are who are culpably neglectful of their own health, and who, In some Instances, for the sake of saving the outlay of a few dollars, and in others from positive indifference, permit their lives to be prematurely destroyed ! If consumption were not a disease as Insidious as It Is fatal, and If It were, as Is asserted by the medi cal faculty generally, incurable, there would be an apology for consumptives wh, day after day and year after year, refuse to heed the warning given by a hacking cough, a hectic cheek, cold and clammy night-sweats, and other distressing symptoms, which are the almost certain forerunners of deep seated pulmonary disease, and which, when tho roughly Ingrafted Into the system, can be removed only by the use of special remedies and the observ ance of precautions the very opposite of those usu ally given by physicians. Many years ago these thoughts suggested them selves to the mind of Dr. Joskph H. Scdknck, now of Philadelphia, but at the time of which we speak a resident of New Jersey. Himself a confirmed consumptive, and with little or no hope of recovery, but with sufficient love of lire to prompt him to make an effort to live, he patiently and thoughtfully applied himself to the scientific study of the disease which was silently, but nevertheless surely, bearing him to the grave. THE BUST MEDICAL attendance had been secured. Remedy after remedy was prescribed, but all In vain. The ruthless disease continued its fast hold upon him, and he was sent to Moorestown, N. J., to die. The last vestige of hope had faded away. His friends, who from time time visited him, bade him farewell, never again ex pecting to see him alive. Bat Dr. Schenck, 111 as he was, and hopeless as seemed his case, did not yield to despair. Weak and prostrated, and phys'cally unable even to walk across the room, his mind was still active. He believed that God had not sent diseases - WITHOUT PROVIDING REMEDIES, and, through friends and visitors, continued to make unceasing inquiries for certain herbs and roots, the virtues of which he understood had been satisfac torily proved in cases of pulmoaarr disease. Ills patience and perseverance were at length rewarded. The long-sought HERBS AND ROOTS WERE OBTAINED. The preparations of these were crude and simnle. but their healing qualities were present notwith standing. He took them regularly, adopted a sys tem oi piaiu uuiuuuiuuusuiei,,reiuainea in nis cnam ber, avoided draughts of cold air, exercised within doors to as great au extent as his impaired strength would aluw, and In a little while a cnaage for tae better was perceptible. The tough mucus that clogged the lungs and bronchial tubes was now freely and easily expectorated. APFKTITE KETURNED, and with it came strength of. body and cheerfulness of mind. Cough, fever, night sweats, and pains began to leave him. Friends beheld the change with amazement: his wasted limbs regained their former rotundity, his step became elastic and firm, ana tue uuppy rettuii. wua mm ue WA8 RESTORED TO PERFECT HEALTH, and is to-day a man advanced In years, but hale, hearty, and strong, and weighing over two hundred and twenty-five pounds. Deeply Impressed with the wonderful cure that nad been wrought, and thankful for his narrow escape from certain death, be re solved to apply nimseu to tne study of medicine, and devote the remainder of his days to efforts to alleviate the sufferings of his fellow-creatures. As would be natural, his principal attention was directed to the subject of Pulmonary Diseases. The most eminent physicians in the country had assured him thai CONSUMPTION COULD NOT BE CURED, and that he, being a consumptive, must diet But mere ne was, a living. Dreaming reiutation or the assertions of these learned men. He that was given up as the hopeless victim of the most dreaded of all aiseases Btooa np oeiore tae worm A STOUT, STRONG MAN, and such he Is to-day, though thirty-five years have elapBed since nis miraculous restoration to neaitn. "The medicines that cured me will certainly cure others. W hy should not others be rescued from a premature grave as I have been T Why should not the healing virtues of roots and herbs that saved my life save the lives of thousands of my fellow beings; who are the victims of consumption 1" Thus reasoned Dr. Schenck as he applied himself to the preparation of his great remedies. After years of experiment he succeeded in perfecting his PULMONIC SYRUP In a form so attractive and so palatable to ths taste that patients take it reguiany lor a long period with out becoming nauseated by It. Hearing of his re markable cure, hundreds and thousands of patients Hocked to nun for advice ana medicine. These were supplied, and to-day there are many healthy men and women living who owe their health and strength wnoiiy to DR. SCHENCK'S MEDICINES. applied the valuable knowledge he had gained to the preparation of others, it became necessary that tne ruuiumte tsyrup snoum nave an assistant in its great work of restoring the system. While It drove out the impurities, new and good blood was want ing. This coma ue secured oniy uy maintaining the digestive organs in pencci condition, xo acuom pllbU 1MB, AN ACTIVE LIVER was essential. With this important organ In a tor pid state, healthful digestion was impossible, and without neauniui aigesuon mere could oe no pure blood. Hence It was that Dr. Huhenck experimented with his now FAMOUS MANDRAKE PILLS. The experiments were satisfactory. He found that thev exercised an almost magical luilueuue upon the liver ana stomacn. ine lormer being stimulated to healthful activity, its socretlons were promoted. The bile and diseased slime which accu mulated In the stomach, and rendered Its functions Inoperative, were removed by the use or the Man. drake IHUh: the appetite was Increased: the fuod taken was properly ass'mnatea, good blood was created in consequence, ana tne reBun a total BANISHMENT OP DISEASE. All that was now needed was a tonic that would give nerve and energy to the still weak but perfectly cured consumptive. The system was entirely healthy, but tlesa was wanted for the limbs, and strength to carry It. Acting Bllently but powerfully in conjunction wuu vuu ruiuiouiu Djrrup ana the Mandrake rms, TDE SEAWEED TONIC ful tilled Its great mission. Being an alkali, It speedily corrected any acidity of the Btomach. It imparted tone and vigor to the entire system. It tHied the restored patient for a resumption ot his ordinary business duties, and put the capstone upon the great remedial structure which Dr. bchenrk. after years of painful personal experience and patient scientific effort, had reared for tne bene fit of tne numau rae. ONE THING TIT REMAINED to be done. While ihU great work of restoration was in progress ir. &chenck was thoroughly con. vinced that exposure to draughts of cold air to the rough, rasping winds of early spring and late fall, or to the chilling blasts of winter, were almost certain death to the patient. Hence It was that he adopted the plan of having his patients remain la their apart ments, ana taciug vu ueeuiut exerciHe mere, until the dlseasea lungs were PERFECTLY HEALED, and what Is called "pure fresh air" could be borne by them without tne auuger oi provoking a returo of the dreaded disease. The system has worked like a chariu. The bold assertion of the medical faculty that consumption cannot be cured has been complete! refuted, and Dr. Scheuok's great remedies have triumphed over all opposing Alpitittnta. ' During the thirty-four years of Dr. Sehenck's very extended practice, be baa frequently examined five hundred patient a week lu the cities ot boston, New York, and Philadelphia.
