THE DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPfl PHILADELPHIA, THURSDAY, APRIL 13, 18 H.
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.

OF TBS DISCOVKR-Y AND WONDBRFUL KFFBCT8 OF DR.
BC1IKKCKS GREAT PULMONIC BRMIDIBS.
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
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.
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.
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,

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
CONSUMPTION COULD NOT BE CURED,

"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

All that was now needed was a tonic that would
give nerve and energy to the still weak but perfectly

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
