A fabaobaph, which appeared in the cewa columns of the Cleveland Herald the other day, state i that "the Anfrlicaa church costs Ejctmid fifty right million dollars a year." Bishop Bedell, in a note corrects the statement, and declare that it ia self-supporting, as is the Church of Sootlaod and the Church ol Ireland as the Episcopal ftUuch is called. At the Workingmen's sSJrUiEfc, during the Sbeffitld congress in October, 1S73, the achbisbop of York staled the case strongly. In urging the workinfjmen four tko'jand cf whon were present to take ad vantage of their privilege, he said: "The cbtrctrn were freely opeu to them. They had v;ry right to the mioieterio? of the word aud i'ue sacraments, without the coat cf a peun;! The church was not supported by the pecpl nor the government. It sup ported i'self." B.staop Bedell took pains to verify this statement by obtaining aconfirma tion cjf it from a distinguished lay lord, a moBiber of parliament.

An exchange paper copies a letter from an English farmer, settled in Wisconsin, pub lished in the Londoa Time, in which the writer gives bis reassns why those English former who thick of seeking refuge in some other country from the evils that are making their life unbearable under the English land system kbould not come to this country. Among other thingp, he says that owing to tbe protective laws in operation here, some articles of clothing he mentions cost three time as much as they do in Great Britain. The New York Bulletin any: "It is amazing hut a people liko ours, so keenly alive to e-rerything tbat tcridi to keep their material interests en rapport with the discoveries and application of modern science in other respects, should be so indiffVreiit to the insignificant figure which they present to the world to-day as a mari time power, and this too with a magnificent oast line some nine thousand miles in ex tent." And yet it is but a comparatively short time ago that the United States were awakening the admiration of the world and arousing the fears of England by their won derful success in naval architecture and now see to what "protection" has reduced our power on tho sea! The "protection" is real protection in this case, but unfortunately the party protected is England.

An excite ment was caused here to-day by reports cf tbe intended rcmotal of the arms and ammu nition from the Stae arsenal to the depot for transportation to Augusta. About five o'clock this afternooa two truck teams loaded with arms and ammunition were stopped at Kenndusky bridge by a crowd, which rapidly increased, 'i'uestretts were filled with peo ple, declaring the aims should never be car ried out of the city. Mayor BfOn demanded ot the reams er the orders under which be was acting. No s.-tia factory answer was given at firt, the ma saying tbat Thayer, the landlord of the Penobscot exchange, had sent word for team to take tbe arms. A young man named French then . pushed thwoitb the throrjg usd sid be was a clerk ia the adjutant-general's cfti :e, and was mov ing the arms. to Atgunta under orders Iroin the - governor. I'he . excitement or' the populace was greatly increased by this statement, md the crowd at tempted to unharness th hordes. The maycr told French he did not have force ecough to guarantee the safety of the munitions if an attempt to remove them was persisted in while the people wen excited. He said that he would take no responsibility of the trouble that might ensui. French decided it best to return the arms to the arnenal, rather than incor hazard and riot, and the mayor furnished police to protect them on their return. Public sentiment was increased by the report that J. L. Smith, Greenback, candidate lor governor; S. W. Haskms, Fu sion, Indian agent, and Major M. M Folaom, of Oldtown, were closeted it the Penobscot exchange during the day. - Major Folaom appeared on the ground after tbe teams had tamed back and told Fretch that he had made a mistake in not pushing through to the depot, and urged him t change his or ders for their return to the arienal. French, however, was unwilling to assume the re sponsibility of a collision with tee populace. Ihe excitement is at lever heat throughout the city. ' Tbe following communication, signed by W. II. Brown, mayor, and a aumber of ex- mayors ot this city, also receiving the signa tures of other prominent citizens, will be tor' warded to tbe governor to-day: To His Excellency. Alonzo Oareelos, Governor ot the mate or Maine: The citizens of this city were much sur prised on the afternoon ot Christmas day to learn that the arms and ammunition were being removed from the State arse nal. located here, to the railroad depot. The first actual knowledge of the fact was upon sering teams loaded and passing through the principal streets. Immediately there was a spontaneous uprising of our best citizens, so tilling the streets as to prevent the passing of teams. The mayor, who had been sent tor, having no knowledge of the authority under which the arms were being moved, first demanded who had assumed the responsibility ot the movement, tie was an swered by a Mr. French, representing him' self to be clerk in the adjutant-general's office, and that he was acting under verbal instruc tions from Governor Oarcelon to remove the arms and ammunition by railroad to Augusta, Mr. French seeing difficulties in the way, and being informed by the mayor thac he might be unable to restrain the people with the force he had at his command, decided to return the arms to the arsenal and the citizens quietly dispersed. While we deploring the act of the State authorities in removing large quantities of deadly weapons through the streets of a peaceful city, in the present ex cited condition of the public mind, we shall endeavor to tbe extent of our ability to pre vent any action which should impair our irood fame as law-abiding citizens Although the most intense excitement exists, not the slightest disturbance has oc curred beyond stopping the progress ot two teams, and as soon as the arms were taken back toward the arsenal tbe throng quietly dispersed. . During the day reports and rumors of extraordinary movements at the State arsenal had caused much publio com ment, and in view of the excited state of publio feeling, during the afternoon J Wheelwright. Chairman, and Xjvsander Strickland. Charles G. Sterns and C A. liau- telle, members of tbe citizens' committee, ac companied Mayor Brown to the Penobscot exchange, where Adjutant-uenerai Aieavitt was said to be. tor the purpose of represent ing to him the imminent danger that the intense feeling prevalent in the commumty - might lead to serious trouble beyond the control ot the municipal force at command. As it proved, tbe ao'iutant-general wes not in the eity, and the mayor and citizens named drove to ine arsenal to make inquiries, but found it locked, and were informed that two large loads of arms and ammunition had been shortly before hauled away to the depot. On driving back to the city, the carriage con taining the mayor and others was unable to nroeeed bevond the Kendnekeag bridge, on account of the crowd in the street, and on alighting the mayor found the people had stopped the toams and refused to permit them to proceed. One team, it is said, had one hundred and twenty stand arms; another, thirtv-tour thousand rounds ball cartridges, As soon aa the teams were mrnea uaca co ward the arsenal the people became entirely a met. The mayor conversed with t rench, who said thai ne naa no oraers irora me aa- . .... . , f . .i j iutant-zeneral. and no written orders from anvbodv. but was acting unaer veroai in . . . - , i i structions from Governor Garcel or to remove the arms, etc., to Augusta, iia states tbat Alderman Pickard, who i bondsman of the arsenal keeper, vouched for Clerk French's authority, and induced the keeper to deliver the arms without any regular order or requisition. At a meeting of prominent citizms held in the evening, the situation was fully discussed. It was unanimously de termined to use eyery effort to prevent any disturbance and avoid psbiic excitement. XABBOW X8CAFE FROM BLOODSUF.p Boston. December 25. A special from riinuor to the Herald says that the escape from bloodshed was very narrow. Adjutant- General Leavitt is now in Eastport, passing Christmas. He wilt arrive here to-morrow. What action will be taken is not known, it is well known that tbe Republicans are forming a secret military association, and threats have been made that they would seize the arms in the arsenal fUK electoral count in mains, Washington special to the Cincinnati Ga zetle (Republican): ''There is no doubt but the leading Democrats are giving much at tention to providing means by which the election of the next President may be thrown into the house. In the first place there is the full intention of so manipulat ing the pending cases of eontaated elections so as to give the Democrats a majority cn a vote bv the States. This can be done either by unseating Orth, of Indiana, or Washburn, of Minnesota, ibere are good grounds tor the belief that the preseat situation in Maine has been brought about as the result of this determination to give such a shape to the elec toral vote that, if necessary to succets, the nlactina can be sent to the house of represen tatives. There Ore Democrats who believe that through Uis creant legislature either of two sets of electoral returned can be aaminsd from Maine, which 'would ena bin the ioint convention here either to throw out the vote of that State or to eount it for a fusion candidate, if the Democrats and Greenbackers should run one. This would throw the election into the house, provided the Democrats can earyy the south, together with New York, and either Connecticut or California. For, leaving out the bsvsa votes of Mains, this would give the Re publicans one hundred and eighty-three and Democrat one nun urea ana "remj"""" votes, not a maion ity of alt. mere is no doubt that the Democrats here are rather anxious to see dual legislatures set up in Maine, at they think this will insure two sets of returns from ilaine. There are Republi cans here who regard the possible effect of tbe result in Maine upon te cuot or me Alectoral vote as much more important than the question of contest of the governorship of that State. They are. therefore, ex ceedingly solicitous tbat all the technicalities of law shall be careful iy observed by the Kenublicana. so that the Democratic joint convention to eoani tfce electoral vote shall have no excuse tor refusuigtua legitimate vote of Maine, which all now believe will be overwhelmingly Republican, as the rtsalt of the present Democratic plundering. A CIRCULAB. A dispatch from Washington says: "A circular, without signature, has been sent to the clerks in the departments from Maine who served in the Union army during the war, ordering them to so arrange their af fairs tbat they can meet wiinout oeiay at. me Grand Army hall to organize a rifla club and start at onne for Augusta. The circular says uniforms of great-coau and caps will be fur nished, with rations and transportation, and a supply of Spencer riues win ue proviaea on the way north." HATES KKVOLTJTION AST . Courier -Journal: "Representative Wil liams, of Wisconsin, called upon Mr. Hayes to day, and they conversed together concern ing the situation in Maine. Mr. Haves counseled resistance on the part of the Re- fiubiican members of the legislature by every egal means in their power to the action of tbe governor and council. Haves advised the Republican members of the legislature to resort to obstructive tactics. He would have them use every parliamentary rule J known for the benefit of minorities to pro- vent tbe legislature of Maine, as created by the returning board of tbat State, from trans acting public business. Such a proceeding Mr. Hayes thinks would sink deep into tbe minds of the people of Maine a sense of the great wrong which has been committed upon them. GARFIELD EXCITED. Cincinnati Cotnntereial: General Garfield says: "It looks to me as though there were forces rt work in organizing this movement from outside of Maine; that these people were tctini under advice of party associates, who had a programme in which the Maine performance wast beginning. I have not a doubt but this makes it all the more neces sary that our people shall resist the first step of the programme to the very fullest extent of tbe law.' DKEADPtJLLT ATBAID. There is a good deal of anxiety here among Republicans in reference to Main a. Above all thiugs they wish to have tbe law technic alities on their side. They think it will have an important hearing on the Presidential question. General Garfield has advised Re- puolicana from that state to give very care ful consideration to the technicalities of the law ia the present case, and to yield to the liw if it is found to favor the claims of the Democrats, even if equities are all on tbe side of the ILeptibiicaua. lo case the Republicans should neglect any of these small technicali ties, it would enable the Democrats in con gress, since they will control the joint con vention to count the electoral vote, to reject the vote of Maine, and this in turn mighr, in case the vote should be counted for the fusion candidate, throw the election of President into the bouse, and thus enable the Democrats to elect a President. PRESIDENT S DECIDED TIBW8. Congressman Williams, of Wisconsin, was talking with President Hayes this morning about the Maine election outrage, and the President described a scene in tbe Ohio legis ltnre, in 1S4, wben SpeaKer Kandail, a mutual acquaintance, amid tbe bowling ot the mob, declared Governor Ford duly elected. Mr. Williams then remarked that one hundred and thirty eight electoral votes in the south, where popular elections were vutually ignored, was not a pleasant thing to think ot, and asked the President it be did not feel tnat the talk now becoming so common, of Democrats in legislatures grabbing the electoral votes -of the States, was fraught with danger. Tbe President replied quickly and with em phasis: "But they are not going to crab them : this Maine business is not going to sue ceed, and then the President added that if he were one ot the Uepublican members ot that legislature he would sit there till Sep tember, and. by every device known to par liamentary law tor the protection of minori ties, all other business should be suspended until the wrong was righted. He would not resort to force, but he would endeavor to bring to bear upon those gentlemen such a weight of public opinion that they could not escape or resist it. It counted in by techni calities, they should be thwarted in their revolutionary purposes until they were made to feel that the will of the majority, wben properly and legally expressed, must control, He expressed the opinion that the good peo ple of all parties, by the time the facts be came known, would emphatically denounce the outrage. OEHEBAL GARPIELD'S DENIAL. Special to the Cincinnati Enquirer "General Garfield's denial that ho had a con versation with the President touching the situation in Maine, and that the President has said to him that he would recognize a rump legislature if set up, i. remarkable to this extent, that tbe denial is untrue. On Sunday a gentleman well known to General Garfield called at his (Garaeld's) house and found bim reading the Liuther-tmrden de cision of Chief-Justice Taney. He said it exactly covered the Maine case. The gener al then said that be had that day had a con versation with the President, who used the language which Garfiald now attempts to deny. Ihe gentleman who had this conver sation was so much imbued with the im portance of it that he telegraphed Sen ator Hamlin, at Augusta, Maine, as follows: General Uarheld advises resistance even to the extent of bloodshed. . General Gar field saw the President to-dav, and the President said he would recognize a bolting lAcri.1n.fnrA if it waa ant nn This dianateh was sent; nit only that, it was read to your correspondent two minutes peiore u was mea at eleven o clocK on Sunday night. ine matter is of no real importance other than that General Garfield either misrepresented the President or deceived the gentleman who was with him Sunday afternoon. Touching ih. mstt. nf tha Pro.iriAnt'a rlwUratinn that he (the President) believed that the Vice-President bad the ri?ht to count the i electoral vote, Garfield said to his Sunday visitor: 'I tell you, n the President is as stal wart on the fourth of March next as he was on Thursday night last, when he told me his views on the right ot tbe V ice-r resident to oount the electoral vote, he will b as strong a man in the White House as Urant or any one eis j. HAMLIN AND THE TWO THIEVES. Hannibal Hamlin has furnished the latest, and, we are dispesad to concede, the strong est, argument, to prove that the governor and counGil of Maine should have viola'ed the constitution ard laws of that State. It is that "Jesus Christ was sacrificed under the forms of law." Tne logic of this luminous argument is too plain to need pointing out. When, however, we reflect upon the fact that the incoming legislature will elect a successor to Hannibal Hamlin in the United States senate, we are inclined to think that the enforcement of the law on the two thieves is a little more pertinent to his case. - TILDEN'S TAMPERING. 'A Democrat who does not care to have his name published denounces vehemently the action ot Governor Garcelon and his council in counting out the Republican mem- bets of the legislature, fie says: '1 believe the whole thing was set up by Sam Tilden and the Albany Argu to attract the atten tion of the people of the country to the out rage so that the appreciation can be had of the outrage perpetrated in Louisiana in 1876, and which Tilden thinks, if properly appre ciated by the. people, will again give him a chance as a martyr.' " what Hayes's blatherskiting amounts to. Washington Poet: "The people of Maine are competent to settle their own local politi cal complications. They want no outside in termeddling at all, and will tolerate none. The Democrats and Greenbackers, who com prise a large majority ot the voters ot tbe State, will stand by Governor Garcelon in the present emergency, and see to it that his action in the case of the legislative count is sustained. If Mr. Hayes attempts to pass upon tbe claims of two possible rival govern ors, and to decide which of the two is the legal one, he will get into not water at once. Governor Garcelon, to place himself and his State in a satisfactory position, has only to immediately institute energetic measures to put down the Republican conspirators, who are now engaged in inviting their party fol lowers to deeds of rebellion and violence. Maine has a republican form of government, and its cituens intend to preserve it. Fed eral interference will' be resented as surely as it is offered. The lawful legislature of Maine will meet in the capitol and perform all its duties, and any attempt to resist its authority, or the authority of the governor whom it shall elect, will bring swift destruction on the heads of those engaged in u - , ir : l. u dubitable proof that Mr. Hayes has so far for goUen jepenciea-bf the positwn he holds as to act as he is semi-omcially credited with having acted in this matter; if those of bis political associates who quote him as enoour aging this revolt by the pledge of executive aid and comfort can be made to swear to the truth of their assertions, it will be the duty of the house to impeach Mr. Hayes before the bar of the senate. No man who fans the flames of sedition, and promises in advance to use the executive authority to maintain an incipient rebellion in a Siate, should be per mitted to degrade the ofhoe of Presid- nt, We much mistake the temper of the house if, should Mr. Haves be shown to have done what bis friends say he has, he does not find himself promptly indicted by the grand in quest of the nation, and arraigned for trial before tbe proper tribunal, as a much better man tor a far less cause was indicted and ar raigned dojea years ago.

According to this report (the object of which is to exhibit the relative weakness of the Austro-Hungarian forces and advocate an addition " to them), the military strength of Russia consists of 3,046,800 men, of whom 600,000 belong to the re serve and 2,446,800 to the standing army The regular army of France comprises 1,689, 000 soldiers of all arms; the territorial army, 1,208,000; total, 2,289,000; to be increased in 1SQ2 by the addition of 300,000 reserve men to 2,7000. The German power, of all classes, m represented by 2,004,300 men, of whom 1,076,200 belong to the standing army, 307,200 to tbe landwehr, and 620,900 to the reserve. Italy has an armv of 698,000. and a militia of 310,000. In 1892. when the re serve will number 1.016 200, her total strength will reach 2 024,200. Austro-Hun-gary possesses a standing army ot 600,000, a landwehr of 299.31H, and a reserve of 95,000 men; total, 1,194,318. The grand total of all these forces amounts to 16,471,918, the standing armies alone numbering 7,925, 000. But it must not be undes stoqd Uiafc ail tie tatter ate how "Under arms i at least halTof them are on furlough. They form the first line,' and all would, of course, be at once called out in the event of a general war. It is nevertheless true that the great military powers have at their disposal sixteen million pb who have learned, Of are now learning, the soldier's art,, and are bound to re-enter the ranks when' required. The mind refuses tQ grasp the full significance of these portentous figures, but it may safely be affirmed that o long as tnse bloated armaments are suffered to exist Europe can count neither on lasting commercial pros perity nor on a long continuance of peace."

New York Herald: In addition to the va rious parts of the system of .Edison already described, there ace a number of ether de tails, not so important, to be sure, aa those ot which sketches have been given, bat never theless essential to make up the complete plan of economical electrical illumination. A description of these latter will not be at tempted, as a proper understanding of them involves a technical knowledge of the laws of electricity. The entire system embraces an amount of work so extensive that one natu rally wonders how a single man in such a brief space of time as fifteen months could possibly have planned and perfected it all. And surprise becomes greater when it is con sidered that during this period Edison found time to make other inventions. A sextuplex telegraph, or apparatus for send ing six messages on one telegraph- wire, in opposite directions, simul taneously,- stw life during the progress of the electric light, patent for the same having only just been issued. Several very impor tant improvements in his chalk telephone, by hicb tbe emc ency ot that invention is greatly increased, also attest his industry and versatility of genius. But perhaps the latter quality is more strikingly exhibited in his polytorm or preparation by which he is enable! to bid defiance te such headache,? neuralgia, and other nervous disease, and to make himself largely independent ot phy sicians in times of ailment. The polyform grew out of necessity. Being considerably afflicted with neuralgia, and obtaining no re lief from bis physician, Edison set about be coming his own doctor. His chemical labor atory, one of the most complete in the United States, furnished him an ample field from which to draw. Experiment followed experi ment, the inventor becoming more deter mined in proportion as bis neuralgia grew more painful. At last he obtained a combi nation of chemicals, a slight 1 appli cation of which to the face immedi ately relieved his pain. Gratified at his success, but hardly yet con vinced, he tried the preparation on others similarly afflicted, and with equally satis factory results. About this time mere hap pened to stroll into the laboratory one day a dilapidated tramp on his periodic begging expedition from place to place. Now, this tramp was a particularly unfortunate one, his poverty being hardly more distressing than bis physical ailments. One of his legs was c swelled with rheumatism, neuralgia coursed along his face, and a dozen or more sores and bruises made bim a veritable Job. Happening to meet him, Edison saw in him a most excellent subject for further polyform experiments. A hearty meal and a little cash readily procured the tramp's con sent, and soon the inventor was subjection his new acquaintance to all sorts of chemical experiments, cor more than a week tbe tramp found food and lodging in Menlo Park, giving in return a few hours of bis time every night to be experimented upon. By the time bis engagement was over, bis rheuma tism bad disappeared, and his sores were well-nigh healed. The news of the tramp's good fortune soon spread, and now it is no uncommon thing for the neighbors to come to the inventor s laboratory, from miles around, to request a little polyform, a request which the inventor always good naturedly complies with. Ihe very, very latest enterprise ot the indefatigable scientist is a scheme tor obtain ing gold out ot "tailings, , or tbe sand thrown away by miners as having been worked out. Rumor has it that Edison has succeeded in obtaining a chemical prepara tion which will take from two hundred to three hundred dollars per ton out of "tail ings" from which the present process can obtain nothing. The matter, however, is aa yet a profound secret. Hr. Beeeher aa Blblea. New York World, 21st: At the close of the Plymouth prayer meeting last evening the adjourned annual business meeting was pro ceeded with. Mr. Hailiday called up an amendment to the manual previously sub mitted by him in reference to the stated monthly collections. Mr. Beeeher I move that this subject be referred to a committee of three to arrange as to what collections shall be taken up by this church. 1 think we have too m toy not too many collections, but too many stated ones I don't think we ought to have more than six. There are some of tbe societies that don't need our help. For instance, there is the Bible society. It is an endowed society and very rich. Whenever they want money tbey can get it from men wio wont give a penny for more progressive obiects. cor one, I wont giye a dollar to a society that prints a bible notoriously false in some parts, and which the society knows is false. A com mittee was appointed to revise tbe present copy of the bible, and it worked laboriously and well, and made its report, recommend ing certain' alterations, which was adopted but some of the old-school membeis of tbe board kicked up about it and the society let the expense of the committee go and never dared to print that version that it bad de' clared to be correct. I wont give it a dollar, And tbe American tract society didn't need any nourishing. It is like the cow tbat gives good milk, of course, but she is up to her knees in clover au the while; and why should we, who are a progressive church and give to things that are not fashionable, objects which are worthy and which need aid, giye anything to it? These societies are of age; let them swing off and take care of them selves. Mr. Hailiday I would explain that it is not tbe American bible society that we tike a collection for, it is the Brooklyn city bible society. I suppose our bible is better than no bible at all, although I am sure I wish it was better, or that we had a better one. But this society supplies bibles for the public in stitutions and the shipping, and it needs all the help we can give. Mr. Beecher's resolution was adopted, and he, Mr. Hailiday and John B. Hutchinson were appqinted as tbe committee. Brother Shearman, from the committee appointed to consider the advisability of the church applying for admission to the New York and Brooklyn Congregational confer ence, reported in layor of such a cource, and contrary to expectation the report was unani mors'y adopted. The meeting adjourned subject to a call of the clerk. Secretary Sherman dresses plainly and al ways in dark colors, and looks more like a college professor than a politician. In his walks he invariably carries a light cane, which he swings carely. The Philadelphia Pres describes him as making the business of bis office go like clocworfc. As fast as he reads tiis letters he dlotates answers to his private secretary, and the callers who inter rupt bim are quickly disposed of. In per ception he is quick, and in decision prompt. He dispatches business with great rapidity, and never reviews his work. If you ask him a question about department business he will anjwar instantly os' direct you to a man who is fully informed. His method is so thorough that he feels every pulse beat in the great department of which he is the head.

The solicitor of Arthur Orton. tbe Tichborne claimant, writes to the newspapers, denying that the writ of error in the claimant's case was applied for under Dr. Kenneally's advice, and asserting that the doctor will not and cannot be em ployed as counsel in tbe case.

Another curious nircum- stance is the fact that large numbers of Arabs are constantly arriving at Bombay, and, al though they are stopped at the railway sta tions whenever there is any ground for sus picion, they make their way to the various cities cf the interior by roads. The matter is attracting tbe earnest attention of the gov ernment.

A special to the Commercial from Delphos says that Bernard Pecker, an old German resident of that placa, was called to his door by loud knocking at two o'clock this morning. On opening the door he was confronted by three ueii, aimed with revolvers, who demanded his money ; he resisted and was shot and in stantly killed. His wife, on hearing the d sturbaece, came to his assistance. She was bound with ropes, fagged and tortured with fire until she disclosed where their money was. Fifteen hundred dollars was taken. There is 'no clue to the criminais. A special to the Gazette fiom Batavia, Ohio, says that a quarrel occurred last night at a ball near there b-.'tween Albert Fit z water and Jake Geiger. Filzwater challenged Geiger to fight, whereupon Geiger seized a stone mason's hammer and beat Fitzwater on the head and shoulders so that he died this after noon. By the sudden rise in the Licking river a number of barges belonging to the Swift rolling. mill were swept away. The eight barges lost were valued, with their contents, at seventeen thousand dollars. An examination of the accounts of E. C. Youles, book-keeper for R. G.

Wbxks & Pottbb Gentlemen: To say tbat I am grateful Is only a poor expression of my feel ings, but It Is the best word tbat I can use. for I feel It In every sense ot toe word. I bare been a great suf ferer with skin diseases for tbe last twelve (1 2) years, ily bead and facs being oovered with sores, I could not rest with the burning beat and Itching of the parts affected, and was onfined 4o my bouse for weeks at a time. My disease has been called Eczema, ol a most aggravated tyrs, by many physlMans, but I doubt if ever folly understood by any of tnem. It was more like a combination of several skin humors. I bave spent much money seeking a cure, and in 1867 I went to Europe, and consulted some of tbe beat physicians in London. I received temporary relief only, for In tbe spring It would break out again as bad as ever. Wben I came back to Boston I was told by many friends tbat Dr. (whose reputation for tbe cure ot those diseases was ot tbe highest order) could cure me. I waited on tbe doctor; be pre acribed for me. I followed h s advice for six months, and, I can safely say, without any Improvement. I tried otber pbysldans, and among tbem Dr. , of East Boston, and Dr. , ot eity proper; but all to no purpose. They did me no good; their remedies were so bteffsotual tha' at no time did I feel tbat a cure wooid result from tbem. I bave swallowed five hundred arsenic pllls(fV20 grain) and taken bottle af ter bottle of Internal rem edies, besides all the external applications I have used, but tbe effect was tbe same. I became satis fied that I could not be cured, but anient ba kept from getting worse. Mm, about three months ago, Mr. Meeban, a gen tleman well known to Boston people, called my at tention to your Cutieura. and promised wonderful results If I would only make a trial. He told me of his own experience with It, and so persevered on me that I went wltu him to uarug store and bought two large boxes of Cutieura and some Cutieura Soap, and commenced to use it according to tbe dl recttona. There was so much bumor lodged wit bin the skin, that as oon as Icomrcenord tbe use ot Cutieura It came to tbe surface and festered until vast quantities bad come out and greatly -ntenslned my sufferings for about twe weeks. But I did not mind this, as 1 felt tnat I was going to gt ild of tbe bumor when I saw It coming to tbe surface In such Urge quantities. After firt two or three weHts use of this remedy 1 was greatly encouraged by a gradual lessening of tbe Inflammation of a number of pain ful sores. I carefully, faithfully and cheerfully fol lowed tbe directions to tbe letter, feeling each week nearer a cure, until at tbe present moment, after three months use of Cutieura, and twelve years ot as constant suffering as was ever endured, I can say i bat I am cured, and pronounce my c&-e tha most re markable on record. I have been so elated with m success tbat I bave stopped men on the street who were afflicted, and told them to get tbe Oulicura and It wouid cure them. This Is wby I am so grateful to you, for I believe It to be the best and greatest dis covery of the Hge, and tbat It will cure all who are suffering with these diseases. I may add that I took no Internal medicine but the Cutieura Keolrnt. WILLIAM TAX LOB.. Boston, August 22, 1878. CDTICURA REMEDIES.
