Tne farmers ave lost largely of their horses aud cattle and nearly all their grain and feed, and all their fencing; the merchauts and manufac turers their stocks; the mechanics are thrown out of employment: coal mines and salt works are flooded, and everything is deso late indeed.

M. a terrible crash was heard at the corner of Pearl and Ludlow streets, in the flooded district. It -was found that the rear parts of four brick buildings, wh'ch had been undermined by the waters, had fallen. Tho scene which followed the crah was one of horror.

Foreign papers are calling attention to the large number of talented singers pro duce! in America. One reason of the super iority of America over Europe, they claim, ib that tho ranks of the singers receive re cruits from all social circles in America, while in Paris even a course of studies a't the Conservatory is looked upon with suspicion by tho high'.T classes. It is some years ago whei Bartley Camp bell first said: "In this country I have found tlie playwright living in a garret and the ac tor living in a villa at Long Branch. The man who makes tho play is treated like a poor relation by the player. When I went to Paris 1 found the actor living in a garret and the playwriguc in a villa."

He offered an-; amendment pro viding for the issuing of treasury note? to take the place of the circulation of the banks as it is surrendered.

Th minority resolution, declaring Manning's credentials to be per- feet, was rejected, 140 to 10J.

Plans have been prepared for the construction of a large hall, to be called the Salle de Travail, or Labor Hall, in Paris, close to -the Hotel de Ville, where men can meet their em ployers and arrange their terras. There will be besides the central hall, eighty rooms for the syndicates of different trades. The cost of the con struction is borne by the city. Inventors are not a little interested Lin the French prize of 10,000, insti- by the decree of June 11, 1882, in favor of the discovery of any pro cess which shall enable electricity to be applied economically in one of the following directions, as already pub b'shed, viz.: as a source of heat, of light, of chemical action, of mechani .cal power, as a means of the transmis sion of intelligence, or of the treat ment of disease. A couple of young ladies of Prince ton, N". J., accepted a peculiar wager from a dry goods merchant of that town. Tho merchant agreed to give them each a silk dress iC they would drive two hogs he wanted killed from his premises through the principal part of the town to his slaughter house. The offer was made in fun, but, much to his surprise, the young ladies took him at his word, and val iantly drove the swine to the required destination. The girls were brave, and easily earned their line dresses. Credit for the most elaborate scheme ever devised by a merchant to attract customers must robably be awarded to a dry goods firm in Melbourne, Austra ia. Whether or not it will produce the desired result remains to be seen. Hehiud tlie shop Is a large garden, ornamented with aviaries and aquaria, in which open air concerts, vocal and instrumental, will be given daily. The basement of the large building has been fitted up with al' the conveniences of a cub for gent' men, inc'tuling a library and reading room, and a restaurant. A cosy de partment with similar accessories ha been provided for ladies. The last English census reveals the encouraging fact that tho proportion of the blind to the population has de creased with each successive enumera tion since 1851, in which vear account of them was taken for the first timo. The decrease in tho decade ending in 1881 was much greater than in either of the preceding decennial intervals, the number of cases returned on this latter occasion being 22,832, equal to one blind person in every 1138. This decreaso is fairly attributable to the progressive improvement in the surgi cal treatment of affections of the eye, and to the diminished prevalence among children of small-pox. Over-feeding is a very prevalent source of disease, especially in young farm animals. It is also a waste of food, and so becomes a double injury to the farmer, Prof. Kn .p, of Iowa, declared that tho farmers of that State waste $15,000,000 annually in over-feeding their col s and hor-es. "lie might have added," says IhoXew York 'Times "an equal sum in loss of service bv d sease f r m overfeeding, lie says that two quarls of oats and two ears of corn twice a day is liberal feeding for a young horse, (and we would add a fuU grown one when not hard worked,) and that moderate feeding conduces to vigorous health and good oid agp." The electric light seems to be set tling down to steady business. Milan is lighting its tram-cars with it, and there is talk of its employment on some of the tramway lines in London. Nearly all the great English railways are going to use it in their carriages. Mr. Alfred de Rothschild lights his brougham with it. Mr. Swan, ol Swan & Edgar, uses it all over his residence at Uromley, and several pri vate residences in the West End oi London are illuminated from cellar tc garret by movable lamps, which are placed amid flowers, in epergnes, on the table, and even attached to the heads of some of the beds for those who desire to burn the midnight carbon. Points in Contrast. Bishop Clark says there are some startling points of contrast betweer our nature and that of the brute, and if tho latter could talk out as we do, the resemblance might be found to be much more striking than we sup pose. It is among the dumb animals that our language finds the symbols or figures of speech by which it desig nates both the virtues and vices of hu manity. The dove and the serpent, the lamb and the lion, the ox and the tiger, are synonymous with innocence and cunning, "gentleness anl power, patience and ferocity. The mostvigo rous epithets, both of honor and con tempt, are taken from this source. The Bible is full of them; "Go and tell that fox" "Ye serpents, ye genera tion of vipers" "dumb dogs that will not bark" "I am like an owl of the desert" on the one hand, and on the other we have an imagery drawn from animal life, which is too sacred to be quoted in this :onneciiun. Tfce Star of Bethlehem. J Mr. Frank Gilbert, in his new "Worlds Historical and Actual," quotes the learned Professor Gounmier as follows: In 1887 tho "Star of Bctldehem," will be once more seen in "Cleopatra's Chair," and will be accompanied by a total eclipse of the sun and inoon. The star only makes its appearance every 315 years. It will appearand illuminate the heavens, and exceed in brillHncy even Jupeter when in opposition to the sun, and therefore near er to the sun and brightest. The mar velous brilliancy of the "Star of Bethle hem" in 1887 will surpass any of its previous visitations. It will be seen even by noonday, shining with a .quick flash ing light the entire year, after which it will gradually decrease in brightness and finally disappear, and not return to our heavens until 2202, or 315 years after 1887. The star first attracted the attention of modern astronomers in the year 1575. ,Jt was then called a new star. It was no new star, however, for this was the star which shone so brightly 4 B. C, and was the star that illuminated the heavens at the nativity of Christ. Only Twenty. A lady with a daughter of uncertain age, gave out that she was only 20. At a party one evening she was speaking of her daughter and a lady remarked : "How old did you say Mary was?" "Mary is just past twenty." "Ah! I should think she was older than that." "Yes, everybody takes her to be older than she is, because you see Mary has such quiet ways. Good evening, Dr. Jones," she said as an. old gentleman came up, we were just talking of Mary, and the lady was quite surprised to hear me say she was so young; you know she's only twenty." "Of course, Madam, of course: for I've heard you tell it for the last ten years, at least, and I have every confidences in any thing you would say,Madani."

My wifo was troubled with catarrh of the bladder, suffered intense rain in the kidneys and 01ns, and urination was accomplished with the greatest of agony. My friends thought that she conld not recover. We tried doctors niid medicines and although better at time she would grow worse atrain'. Slio was obliged to use the urinal as many ns fifteen times in nnigntf and was growing wo:se daily. At tins time my attention was called to Hunt's Remedy, and I concluded to try it: and after using one bottle she was a good derd better, the inflammation was reduced, and tho water more natural. She begau to cain in appetite and fe.fc no pain in the back and kidneys. Sho could attend to her househo'd work without pain, and this had been a great burden to do, even the lightest kind of work. After using six bottles she was completely cureTT ,xi?e then I Iinv hod occasion te nse Hunt s Remedy for kidney and liver com plaints, and found it to be jast as represented, and I consider it a mostwouderf il medicine.

A XODEItN BISSPBBECTIOy. jA Itlirscle tltet Toek IMhcb la ht MWft tf - kne-rrn te the Public The Details In Fall. ' One of the most rercarkablo occurrences ever given to tho public, -which took plat j herein our midst, has just eome to our knowledge and will undoubtedly awaken a3 much surprise and attrait as great attention as it has already in newspaper circle?. Tho tfaots are. briefly, as follows: Mr. William A. Cromble, a yotlng man formerly residing at Birmingham a suburb of Detroit, and now living at 27 Michigan avenue, in thte city, can truthfully sajv that ho has looked 'into the future world and yet returned to this. A representative of this paper has in terviewed him Upon this important subicct and his experiences are given to the pubKo lor the Orst time. He said: "I had been having most peculiar sensa tions for a long while. My head felt dull And heavy; my oyesight did not seem so clear a3 formerly; my appetito was uncertain and I was nnaccountab y tired. It was an effort to or.'se in tho morning and yet I coti'd not sleep at night. My moath tasted badly, I had a faint all-gone sensation in the pit of my stomach that food did not f at'sfy, -white my hands and feet felt cold and clammy. I wa3 nervous and irritable, and lost all en thusiasm. At times my head Would seem to whirl and my heart pa'pitated terribly. I hal no energy, no ambition, and I seemed indifferent of the present and thoughtes3 for the future- I tried to shake the feeling o'f and persuade myself it was pimply a col I of a little malttria. But it Would not go. I was determined not to g.vo up, and so timo ras od alone and all the whi!o 1 was getting worse. It was aboutthis time thatl noticed I bad be gun to bloat fearfully. My limb3 wore swol len so that by prossiug my il tiger's Upon them dcop depressions would bo made. My fac3 also began to enlarge, an I continued to until I could scarcely see out of my eyes. One, of my friends, describing my appearance at that time, said : 'It is an anmated some thing, but I should liko to know what.' In this condition I passed several Weekj of the greatest agony. ' Finally, one Saturday night, the misery culminated. Nature could e nduro no mire. I became irrational aud apparen tly insensible. Cold sweat gathered On my forehead; mV eyes became glazed and my throat rattled. I seemed to b : in another sphere and with other surroundings. I knew nothing of what occuried arcund mg, although I lave since learned it was considered as death by thoe who stood byk It w&5 to me a quiet stat, aud yot ono of gfcat agouy. I was helpless, hopeless and pain was myon'y companion. I remember trying to scj what was beyond me, but tha mist before my eyes Mas too great. I tried tc reason, but I had lost all power. I felt that it Wtts death, and rea'ized how terrible it vras. At last the strain upon my min I gave way anl all was a blank. How long this continued I do not know but at last 1 realized the presence of friends and recognized my mother. I then thought it was earth, but was not cef lain. I gradually regained conscicusflcss, how ever.and tho pain les ened. I found that my friends had, during my unconsciousness, been giving me a pre, aration I ha 1 never taken before, and the next day, Under the influence of this treatment, tha b'oating tasau to dis appear and from that time on I steadily im proved, until to-day I am as well as ever be fore in my life, have no traces of 'the terrib'e acute Bright's disease, which so nearly killed me, and all through the wonderful iustru mentality of Warner's Safe Cure, the rem cdy that brought mo to life after I was virtu ally in another world." "You have had an unusual experience, Mr. Crombie," said tho writer, who had been breathlessly listening to tho recital. "Yes, I thiuk I have," wa3 the reply, "aud it has been a valuable lesson to met I am certain, tnulgb, there are thousands of .men and women at this very moment who 'have the saaio ailment which came so near killing me, and they do not know it, I be lieve kidney disease is the most deceptive trouble in the world. It comes like a thief in the night. It has no certain symptoms, but seems to attack each one differently. It is quiet, treacherous, an I all tho more danger ous. It is killincr more peoplo, to-day, than any other Ono complaint. If I had the power I wou.".i warn the entire wor'd against It and urge them to remove it fro ji the system ba fore it is too la'e." One- of the membars of tho firm of White head & Mitchell, proprietors of the Birming ham Eccentric, paid a fraternal visit to this office yesterday, and m the course of conver sation, Mr. Crombio's nama was montionofl "I knew about his sickna s,'' said the editor. 1 "" " oujtniuia jcvuvuij. x HiiJL CIS obituary all iu type and annouueedin tha Ec centric thatha could not livb untd its nex issue. It was certainly a most wouderful case." Rev. A. R. Bartlett, formerly pastor of the M. E. Church, at Birmingham, aud now of Schoolcraft, Mich., in response to a telegram, replied: "Mr. W. A. Crombio was a member of my family at the time of his sicknes;. The pray ers of tho church were requested for him on twx different occasions. I was with him OU the day ho was reported by his phvsic.'a is as dying, and consider his recovery almost a miracle." Not one person in a million evyr coms sd near death as did Mr. Crombio aud theJri f6 cover, but the men and women wno are ariftmz toward tho same end, are legion. To noto the slightest synqtjms, to reaiza their significance and to m:ei them in timo by the remedy which I as ben shown to be most etneent, is a duty from which there can be no escape.
