There be busy times at the pop
ular store of Mr, Ed. L. Edmund-
son, who is receiving new Fall goods
of every description tor the uemanaa
of his extensive trade.
Be a good Democrat ; be true to
yourself and your country in the
hour of her peril and you will be
happy when the fight is over and the
battle is won and prosperity comes
with Cleveland's Administration.
Let the croakers croak. It is not
they who run the world. The world
runs without them and over them
and in spite of them. They are just
impediments, like rocks in the
stream "that's all".
It was "John Barleycorn" and
not Jim Corbett that did up John
Sullivan, the slugger. Intemperance
has destroyed more men than all the
wars of the ages. And eveiy one so
destroyed or on the road, was once
a "moderate" drinker.
The city schools will resume work
Monday next, September 19 th. The
Superintendent will be in his office
Friday, Sept. 16th, from 9 a. m. to
12 m., for the purpose of examining
and grading new pupils. Children
desiring to enter the primary grade
must be attended by some older per
son who knows their age.
The double store of Messrs. Best
& Thompson, on Waluat street, is an
interesting place to visit these days
while they are receiving and display
ing their extensive lines of new Fall
gools. They are well-known to the
traiing public of this vicinity and
are always prepared to fill even the
minutest wish of customers.
Beg pardon, but we rise to re
mark that the Goldsboro Argus,
in its Daily and Weekly editions,
goes regularly into the thrifty homes
of this city and throughout the en
tire trading territory of Goldsboro.
So, if you desire to reach customers
who pay for their paper and buy for
cash, advertise in these columns.
Thh following apropos lines were
picket up on the street yesterday
and handed to us. They read well :
" Would it not be well for the can
didate for Governor, not of the
Democratic, nor of the Republican,
nor of the Ath party ticket, to read
the xxx chapter of Proverbs, 7, 8,
and 9 th verses ?".
Ojje of the handsomest and most
attractive stores in the city is that of
the Einstein Clothing Company in
the Hotel Kennon, with that well
known and univeraally popular
young business man Mr. Sol. Einstein
in charge. The show cases and
6how windows are marvels of beauty
and artistic taste.
The State Colored Normal School
opened in this city yesterday, of
which Pvof. H. E. Hagans, son of
Napoleon Hagans, one of the most
respectable and prosperous colored
men iu the State, from the Fremont
section, has recently been elected
Principal. The Argus is glad to
not3 his election. He merited the
preferment, and we wish the school
all success under his administration.
The city is at length to have a
complete and uniform system of
sewerage, adequate to all require
ments. The contract for the work
has already been awarded to a New
York construction company, who
will send out a civil engineer to
make the survey and draw the' plans
during the current month. The
work of digging up and laying the
pipes will be done after the malarial
season is over. We go forward.
Just one week from tc-day
and the Stevenson jubilee will open
in Goldsboro. Are yon getting ready
for the great event? Every home
in Goldsboro should be decorated on
that day and all the leading streets
and business houses. The distin
guished party of visitors will be
driven through the city in carriages,
and consequently everybody should
go to work in time and make Golds
boro show up in grand style on the
Stockholders of the A. & N. C.
II. 11. will be passed free on the
mail train on Wednesday, Sept. 21st,
1392, from Goldsboro and stations
intermediate to Morehead City and
return to attend the regular annual
meeting of the same on Thursday,
Sept. 22, 1892. No special train
will be run to the meeting. The
conductor of mail train will be fur
nished with the stock list and stock
holders will be passed accordingly.
The tleath of Mrs. Curtis W.Nor-
ris, who has been confined to her
bed for a year and was a great suf
ferer,' occurred Saturday afternoon
at her heme in this city. She wa 80 a
most estimable lady and her death,
though indeed an angel of comfort
and peace and reconciliation to her,
will be sincerely mourned by all
who knew her. She leaves a devoted
husband, a little daughter, and a
wide circle of relatives , and friends.
Her remains will be taken to the old
homestead, - near Princeton, for in
terment. At the meeting of the Cleveland
and Carr Club of Fork - township on
Friday last, Mr. Iiichard Hines ap
plied for admission, stating that he
had fully considered the situation
and had made up his mind to vote
the straight Democratic ticket. He
stated that he had thought he would
vote the Third party ticket, but on
serious reflection had come to the
conclusion that the best interest of
the country demands the election of
the Democratic nominees, xnus
our friends are coming back to the
Democratic fold, and we receive
them with open arms. The latch-
string still bangs on the outside.
It is reported that Dr. Exum,
Third party candidate for Governor,
said, in his harangue in Wadesboro,
that he would carry Wayne county
by 2,000 majority. Surely the Doc
tor is misrepresented, or is badly
mixed up and was thinking of his
2,500 goats. Blowing with the
Doctor eeems to be a chronic com
plaint. Buta it shows up from the
tax list that "the Doctor really has
only 90 goats and this is about the
number of votes m toto that the
Doctor will receive in Wayne county.
It is a real pleasure to The Argus
to announce that the well-known
and reliable Music House of Messrs.
Ludden & Bates, of Savannah, Ga.,
have opened an extensive branch
house in this city, on West Centre
street, next door to Messrs. Royal 1
& Borden, with that courteous and
efficient gentleman Mr. Henry G.
Miller in charge. They have a mag
nificent line of pianos and organs on
exhibition, and they are noted for
the entire satisfaction they give their
customers. The Argus wishes them
much success with their Lew branch
house in this city.
History recites .that in 1868, un
der Republican rnje, a saturnalia
was held in North Carolina s Capi
tal. There are those v ho attributed
this wild license of the baser sort,
not to the wickedness of the party,
or entirely of its representation, but
to the evil influences of the times.
In 1885 the Republicans gained a
temporary ascendency in the Legis
lature, and all those who attributed
the wrongs of 1868 to the evils of
the times, were undeceived, and if
they were of a reflective cast of mind
they concluded, and rightly, too.that
the evils of 1868, as also the tenden
cies of 18C5, were not temporary al
terations, but inherent evils of the
His Excellencv Governor Holt
and the State Board of Internal Im
provements arrived in the city Fri
day afternoon from their trip of
inspection of the A. & N. C. R. R
They found the road bed, bridges,
cross-ties, equipments, etc., in most
excellent condition, and to a man the
Board had only words of generous
commendation of President Chad-
wick's administration. In this con
nection we take occasion to correct
the figures given in our article on
the divident the other day iu regard
to the floating indebtedness of the
road when Mr. Chadwick took hold
of it and which he has fully liqui
dated. It was $56,000 instead of
It has come at last the bitter
est hour of John L. on. li vane
lift. The sand of the ring soaked
with blood, and he, the winner of
a hundred battles, lying prone and
helpless upon it. Close beeide hirn,
in epite of the shrieking and howl
ing crowd out&ide the .ropes, he
hears the words "Seven, eight,
nine out." And then the loud
twang of the gong tells that the
battle is over. The battle is over,
and as his dazed and blinded eyes
are gradually restored, John L.
Sullivan taetes for the first time
in his long and brilliant career the
wormwood and gall of defeat. He
wa knocked out in the 21st round,
and now "Jim Corhett," the
Frisco Slugger" is the world's
champion, and "John L." the Bos
ton bully, takes a back seat.
Superior Court convened in this
city yesterday, with Judg Henry R.
Bryan, of JNewbern, presiding, and
Solicitor Pou at his post. Judge
Bryan's charge to the Grand Jury
was the feature of the morning
session, it was a comprehensive
presentation of their duties, scholarly
in finish, eloquent in diction and im
pressive in delivery. This is J udge
Bryan's first holding of court here
and he has won our people t the
start. He is courteous, considerate
and aggressive and there will be no
delay of public business under his
presiding. The following are the
Grand Jury of the term : J. J. Ivey,
Foreman, R. M. Howell, D. Creech,

At the close of the war the Gov
ernment, to meet the large debt in
curred by the war, levied a tax of 3
cents a pound on cotton, 33 cents a
pound on tobacco, 90 cents a gallon
on whiskey, and 1 per cent, on real
estate, besides other taxes. The war
debt amounted to about two billions
of dollars, and is not over half paid,
twenty-eeyen years after the war is
ovsr. Uur Third partv friends offer
the people as a means of relief or
cure for all their financial troubles
to bny all the railroads, steamboats
and telegraph and telephone
lines in the country at a cost
of anywhere between five and
fifteen billions of dollars, or five
times as much as the war debt. This
vast purchase is to be made on credit,
as the Treasury is now empty and
likely to be as long as the Republi
cans remain in power with their apt
ness for spending the public money.
How would our Third party friends,
and especially the farmers, feel if
they should succeed in their 'foolish
schemes, and it should become nec
essary to levy those taxes again.
With cotton selling at 6 cents a
pound and 3 cent 3 a pound to come
off for taxes, they would find them
selves, badly impoverished abject
serfs and rue f greyer the day their
leaders eyer hit upon such a brilliant
scheme of finarcial reform.
Four brilliant Americans have
just passed away in rapid succession:
George William Curtis, of New
York, on August 31; Daniel Dough
etry, of Philadelphia, Thomas W.
Parsons, of Boston, on September 5;
and John Greenleaf Whittier, on
whom we publish an article" from
the Philadelphia Times this morn
ing. Curtis was statesman, journ
alist and man of letters. Ilia name
in politics stands for Civii Service
Reform. The sixty-nine years of
his life covered an eventful "period in
the political and intellectual progress
of his country, and he. was a p! emi
nent factor in both. A native of
Providence, 11. I., he sympathized iu
his young manhood with the
Transcendentalists, and like Em
erson, Hawthorne, Margaret Ful
ler,.' and Father Hecker, joined
the Brooklyn Farm commu
nity. Later, he travelled extensive
ly in Europe and Asia, and then set
tled down to newspaper work on the
New York Iribune. About twenty
five years ago he took charge of the!
Easy-Chair in Harper's Magazine
and kept it until his death. His
published volumes include ''Nile
Notes of a Howardji," "Lotus Eat
ing" and the famous ''Potiphar Pa
pers." His income was u stated at
about $25,000 a year. Dr. Thomas
W. Parsons will be remembered . for
his excellent translation of Dante's
"Inferno," and for many original
poems of rare strength and beauty.
Most of the latter wer-.1 published in
small volumes for private circulation,
and consequently neyer became as
well known to the general public as
their merits deserve.
Miss Corrinne Washington, who
will be greatly missed by her mauy
friends here during her absence, has
taken a position as teacher in the
Schools of Florence, S. C.
Misses Elise Fulghum and Lizzie
Holt, graduates of the Goldsboro
High School, having successfully
stood the recent public examination
for this couiity, have been awarded
scholarships in the State Female In
dustrial School at Greensboro.
Our young friend and townsman
Mr. George E. Hood, we are glad to
know, has been promoted to the po
sition of 1st assistant in the West
ern Union Telegraph office in this
city, under the management of that
courteous gentleman and efficient
operator Mr. Jno. G. Sizer, through
whose solicitude Superintendent J.
B. Tree, of Richmond, gave Mr.
Hood the appointment. It is a pre
ferment worthily bestowed. George
Hood is a most excellent young man
and The Argus predicts for him a
successful career in his chosen pro

Over a Thousand Armed Men on Fire
New York, Sept, 12. The dan
ger tf invasion of cholera has for
the moment sunk into the backs
ground, and today the question
uppermost in the minds of the
people has been, is the State in
possession of FWe Island or is the
situation still held by rioting bays
men who ref'nsu to let the State
take its own. Events have lollowed
so swift upon one another that it is
hard to understand the situation
f rom the disjointed reports secured,
Meanwhile the Normania pas
sengers and other quarantine pas
sengers are being tossed from place
to place and are apparently
destined like the crew of the Fly
ing Dutchman, to sail on forever.
The gravity of too situation has
brought Governor Flower to the
scene, and the vigorous, decisive
way in which he is proceed
ing bids fair to right mat
ters and bring order out of the
present tangle. In brief, the events
of the day have been the assembl
ing of an armed force of laymen
who have prevented the landing . at
Fire Island, the issuance of an in
junction to restrain the fttate au
thorities from landing quarantined
passengers at Fire Island, and the
last report, which was that the
boat Cepheuf, with the passengers
from the Normania aboard wa3 at
Fire Island, held at bay by armed
guards who had successfully op
posed two attempts to land. So far
as the cholera itself is concerned,
there is nothing new.
After the Cephens had anchored
a boat was lowered and P.T. Wall
and Capt. Tripple were rowed in it
to the dock, but were not allowed
to step ashore. " Wall said he de
sired to confer with the committee,
but was not allowed to land. He
Anally read his authority from Dr,
Jenkins. Supervisor Young re
plied : "I do not recognize Dr.
Jenkins. This is not the port of
New York, and I don't propose to
allow any passengers from infected
ships to land in the town of Islip."
"But we have not a sick person on
board. Everybody is well, and I
appeal to yon in behalf of Amen
can women and children to allow
these people to land," eaid Wall.
"We think of our own women and
children first, and intend to pro
tect them at all hazards," replied
Supervisor "White.
This conversation was going on
when Dr. Voight, who is at the
hotel to attend the passengers, ap
peared on the dock and began
relliDg' Wall he had charge there,
7,-hen several Bay men crowded
around him, shonting, "Throw him
fttotho water and drown him,"
would probably have carried oi t
threats but for the reporters.
The boat returned to the Ce
pheup,' where the -dejected passen
:ei' spirits were being kept np by
a, band of music, the band playing:
'The Sttr Spangled Banner,"
'God Save the Queen," and 4 Yan
kee Doodle". The boat came off
again, however, and Wall asked to
have provisions sent aboard the
Cephens. Some one in the crowd
shouted: "All right, let them
have all the provisions they want,"
but the greater number answered:
"No, no; give them nothing. Let
them go back to New York."
Dr. Yoight has just stated he is
informed that Governor, Flower
has telegraphed Sheriff Darlington,
of Suffolk connty, to come here
with deputies and keep State prop
erty clear ot intruders, 'and protect
the Cephens' passengers in landing.
Many threats were made of burn
ing or cutting down the dock it" the
passengers began to land, and a
number ot men proenred axes with
which to cut away sufficient of the
dock near the hotel to prevent
persons reaching the latter.
Gov, Flower was much nettled
and expressed en r prise when in
formed of Judge Barnard's injunc
tion. P rot. Uolline, his legal . aa
thority, said: This is a very se.
rious matter. I will not say that
it will interfere with onr plans, and
as yet cannot say exactly what we
will do". Before being made aware
of the action of Jndge Barnard,
Gov. Flower issued a proclamation
recitiDg that for the relief of pas
sengers on quarantined cholera
infected vessels. Fire Island had
been purchased, but that it was
reported citizens of Suffolk county
were preparing to forcibly prevent
its use for quarantine purposes. It
then directs and commands the,
sheriff ot Suffolk connty to guard
the place and protect quarantine
oiheer in the discharge ot
their dnty. While en route to
New York city and before the oc
currence of the day's events, Gov
ernor Flower 6ent the' following
To Dr, Jenkins Yonr dispatch

that you have acted -bo 'promptly
and with such discretion. : lhe feel

At 2.45 p. m. the Cepheus reached
the dock, " which was densely
crowded with Islip citizens, armed
with shot guns, clubs, etc.,
prevented a line from the boat be
a'tached. The captain backed oat
turned around and again attempt
ed to land. In this he was un
successful, although a man aboard
shouted they had Gov. Flower's

Hon. G. W. Sannderlm Says He Didn't
Use the Langnase Ascribed to Him.
Progressive Farmer.
Mr. Editor: In your issue of this
week (Sept. 6th) you assail me for
entering the campaign as a Demo
cratic speaker, and in order that you
may break the force of my influence
you- ascribe to me words 1 never ut
tered, and represent a condition at
the time of delivery of my address
before the Wake county Alliance
that did not obtain.
1st. The address iu question was
not delivered "iu a recent meeting of
Wake County Alliance," if by that
is meant a meeting with closed doors,
as seme of your readers say ycu in
tend to imply. The address was a
public one, made on a public occa
sion, to which the public were gen
erallv invited, and they did bip the
honor to attend in large numbers.
2nd. The people present to hear
me will remember that I used manu
script iu the delivery of my address.
I did this in order to be able to pro
tect myself against such misrepre
aentationa as appear in your article.
This manuscript I still have in pos
session and it is open to inspection.
In it the sentiment does not appear
that is attributed to me in your
editorial, namely: "lirethren, your
hands are crossed and tied. If you
do not stand firm upon your platform
and vote to have your principles en
acted into law, your feet will also
be tied". In the connection to which
reference here is evidently made in
your "article I was urging the neces
sity in farmers preserving their or
ganization 'as a means of promo
tion and protection of their best
interests against the' capilistic
combinations and unjust legis
lation directed against them. I
did not want the Alliance Organiza
tion to ,go down. I said: "In ad
dressing you as Alliancemen, I do
not mean to address you as members
of the Alliance as a political organi
zation. In that matter I would say :
Put the Alliance back where it was
or it will disintegrate and die. Let
the mission of the Alliance be edu
cational, leaving the educated con
science of its constituency to con
strain and direct their voting rather
than the nse of a political restraint
of any sort. Let the mission of the
Alliance be like that illustrated in
the Persian fable where a man walk
ing along the road picks up a lump
of clay and finds it fragrant.
"Whence, ' O, lump of clay, do you
derive your fragrance ", he asked.
I have been lying close to the" Rose
of Sharon said the lump of clay,
"and have been sweetened by its
presence and influence ". So let the
Allianfie, with the pure principles
and aims it set out with, lie close to
every class, , every profession, every
interest, net M "injure them, 'buiffa
sweeten them with the gracious per
fume of its influence. It is a noble
organization, capable of so much
good if kept true to its original aims
and purposes. Let us keep it there, "
etc., etc. It is a far different thing
to urge the maintenance of organiza
tion and such a course as this for
the Alliance (&i I have always done)
than to urge that it becomes a parti
san organization, as I would have
been doing if I had used the words
ascribed to me in your editorial.
With sentiments of personal regard,
v Sincerely your,
' . G. W. Sanderlin.
Miss Antique. You ought to get
married, Mr. Oldchapp.
Mr. Oldcbapp (earnestly). I
have wished many times lately that
I had a wife.
Miss Antique (delighted). Have
yon, really?
Mr. Oldchapp. Yes. If I had a
wife she'd probably have a sewing
machine, and the sewing machine
would have an oil can, and I could
take it and oil my office chair. It

There is a Hindoo legend of. a
pious pilgiim who w.ia once journey
ing towards a certain city, when he
was acosted by a female figure of
ghastly mien, who begged leave to
ride with him to his journey's end.
He aeked her who she was, and she
answered; "I am the Cholera. But
I will spare your life if you carry
me to the city". . "And how many
lives will you destroy when you reach
the city"? he asked. "Two thousand;
no more nor less".
The pilgrim pondered a while and
said to her : "It is a large number:
but it is a large city. I will carry
you there if you swear that your
victims shall not exceed 2,000". The
bargain was made and the travellers
parted, to meet again on the borders
of another city some days later. As
before, she besought his aid; where
upon he exclaimed wrathfully:

T he fable has a moral so obvious
that he who runs may read.
The terrible plague which has de
vastated Russia and Eastern Europe
has at length crossed the ocean and
is menacing this country. It will
injure no community which has aot
made its work easy by unhealth en
vironments; in other words, its ef
fects will be felt only by places and
persons of defective sanitary and
physical character.
It is wise to fear cholera, if fear
ensures precaution against it. It is
unwise to fear it in blind panic, and
still more unwise to die of the fear.
The national and local authoritity
cau enforce sanitary precautions; but
the individual's safety will rest
largely with himself. Nobody will
"catch" the cholera unless he be
physically prepared for it. Every
body should be mentally prepared,
by declining to share in a senseless
and uangerous panic.

LoNnoy, Sept. 112, There was
a run on the Birkbeck bank to-day,
It. is connected With the Birkbeck
Building Society and two other
associations of similar chaaacter. It
is the oldest of the associated build
ing trusts' which are all now look
ed on with suspicion. The bank
opened an hour earlier than usual.
Lhe building was choked with
depositors and the directors decided
to keep open- till ten to-night.
They are meeting all demands.
Manager RaveDscraft attributed
the run to the failure of several
building societies last week. He
said: '"O'ur total liabilities, which
we may be called to pay on de
mand, amount of 5,674,000. We
have securities on which we can
immediately realize 5,544,000.
The public has no just cause for
alarm about the Birkbeck build
ing societies." They have money
locked up in bonds and buildings.
Over two million pounds of our
securities are held in the Bank of
England, and wa can raise money
on them within an hour."

The following is the State Dem
ocratic platform as enunciated by
the State Convention in assembly
May 18th :
Resolved, 1. That the Democ
racy of North: Carolina reaffirm the
principles of the Democratic
party, both State and National,
and particularly favor the - free
coinage of silver and an increase
of the currency, and the repeal of
the internal . revenue system. And
we denounce the McKinley tariff
bill as unjust to the consumers ot
the country, and leading to the
formation ot trusts, combines and
monopolies which have- oppressed
the people ; the unnecessary and
burdensome increase in the tax on
cotton ties and on tin, so largely
used by the poorer portion of the
people. We likewise denounce
the iniquitous Force bill, which is
not vet abandoned bv the KeDUbh
can party, but is being used as a
measure to be adopted, as soon as
they gain control of the House ot
Representatives, the pnrpose and
effect ot which measure will be to
establish a second period of recon
struction in the Southern States, to
ubvert the liberties of onr people
and inflame a new race antagonism
an? sectional animosities.
2. That wo demand financial re
fjrm, and the enactment of laws
that will remove the burdens of the
people relative to the existing agr
icultural depression, and do fall
and ample justice to the farmers
and laborers of onr country.
3. That we demand the abolition
ot national banks, and the substi
tnting of legal tender Treastry
notes, issued in sufficient volnme
to do the business ot the country
on a cash system, regulating the
amount needed on a per capita ba
sis as the business interests of the
conntry expand, and that alt monV
ey issued by the government shall
be legal tender in payment of
debts, Doth public" and private.
4. That we demand that Con
gress shall pass such laws as shall
effectually prevent the dealing in
futures of all agricultural and me
chanical productions, provide such
a stringent system of -procedure in
trials as shall secure prompt con
viction and imposing such penalx
ties as shall secure most perfect
compliance with the law,
5. That we demand the free and
unlimited coinage of silver.
6. That we demand the passage
of laws prohibiting the alien owns
ership of land, and that Congress
take early . steps to devise some
Elan to obtain all lands now owned
y alien : and foreign syndicates;
and that All . lands now held - by
railroads and other, corporations,
in excess of ' such as is actually
needed by them,- be reclaimed by
the government and held for ac t
ual settlers only... ,
7. Believing in the doctrine oi
equal rights to all and special
privileges to none," we demand
that taxation, National or State,
shall not be used tor build np one
interest or class at the expense of
J nother. We beliet that the
money of the' xduntry should be
kept as much a possible in the
hands of the people, and hence we
demand that all revenues. Nation
al, State or cuanty, shall be limited
to the neccesary expenses of the
government, economically and hon
estly administered, v v ,-v ; h
v 8. That Congress" issue a suffi
circut amount of fractional paper
currency to facilitate the exchange
through the medium of the United
States mail. -:"
9. That the General Assembly
pass such laws as will make the
public school system more effec
tive that the blessing of education
may be extended to. all the people
of the State alike. .-
- 10. That we lavor a graduated
tax on incomes. "

from Tarboro SoutKerntr, July 17.1
While visiting Tarboro, on 'July' 8th,' I
was requested to visit Miss Mary E -Stat on,
seven . miles from town, whafor seven
weeks had been suffering excruciating
agony from some blood poison, supposed
to be poison oak. ' Oh last Tuesdftjr, at hit
request, I went to see her, and expected to
see great suffering,' but was tiotpep,ared
for the scene that met me, t .1 found the
patient broken out all over with an erup
tion which had occasioned such intense
itching that during the paroxysms she Was
perfectly uncontrollable, and had scratched
and torn herself to pieces until, her agony
was indescribable. During these " .par
oxysms she would have to be held, and
her screams could be heard a longdistance.
bhe would pray for death to colne to Lot
relief: her whole body Was Durfile and
raw, exuded a yellow water which sattt
rated the bed thro-ig several tlrxk quilts
that day she had possessed herself of a
thick gutta-percha coarse comb, and before
she could be prevented, had raked herself
: .1. i a . . .
wiui wuu sucn iorce as to oread out
some of the teeth, thus adding to her aeonv.
She was attended by some good physicians
as larboroand her neighborhood conl4
afford, but their trpjit.mp.nt ffnlv1 nnltr
occasional relief by outward applications,
and no permanent benefit, as the par
oxysms continued to return with increas-
ing violence. Upon viewing the condition
of the patient I called the family together,
ana wia mem to bear witness that I prom
ised nothihg. I could not, tell whether
my Remedy would relieve or not. as I had
never even imagined such suffering, bnt it
could do no harm and might do good. " I
then gave her a large dose of the Bitters
and as soon as the paroxysm was over," t
sponged her whole body with the Wash.
While doing so she . would call out, 'Oh,
that does feel so good" I then gave her .
another dose of the Bitters, and she was
soon in a sweet sleep. I continued this
treatment, and whenever the itching would
recur I would sponge the body instantly
with the "Wash, which in every. instance
allayed in the irritation or itching and
warded off those violent' rJaroievms. Sha"
did not have an attack during the- day,'
and by 4 o'clock on Wednesday afternoon .
the disease was under perfect control,- The
itching would recur, but every, time was
allayed by the application of the Wash." I
left her Wednesday easy and comfortable,
with directions for the treatment to be con.
tinned daring the night and. as long as
was necessary. I came again to see :her '
up and dressed and in the regular prose
cution of her household duties. She is en

have to take the Bitters some time to com
pletely eradicate the poison from her
