Wonderful Surgical Operation RemoTal of Urinary Stones from the Bladder Successful. Mr. Simon Tletsell, of Ssneertles, N. Y had been treated for seven years by various physicisns for what they called Stricture of tbe Urethra, without benefit. He finally consulted Dr. David Kennedy, of Rondout, X.

The doc tor at once removed the foreifrn bodies with bis knife and then gave his great Blood 8 pe el Qe, " Favorite Remedy," to prevent there-formation. Tbe entire treatment was eminently successful, and Mr. TicUel'e re covery was rapid and perfect. - While - Favorite Remedy" Is a specific In all Kidney and Bladder Diseases, it is equally valuable in esses of Bilious Dis orders, Constipation bf the Bowels, and all the class of ills apparently Inseparable from tbe constitutions of women.

Coughllne, of Somtrvllle, Ma a., la so remarkable that we beg to ask for It the atteosion of our readers'. He saya : "Jn the fall of 1876 I was taken with a vio lent bleeding of the lungs followed by a severe cough. I soon began to lose my appetite and flesh, I was so weak at one time that I could not leave my bed. In the snmmer of 1877 I was admitted to the City Hospital. While there the doctors said I had a hole in my left lung as big as a half dollar. I expended a hundred dollars In doctors and medi cines. I was so far gone at one time a report went around that I was dead. I gave up hope, but a friend told me of Dr. Wm. Hall's Balsam for the Lungs. I laughed at my friends, thinking that my case was incurable, but I got a bot tle to satisfy them, when to my sur psise and gratification, I commenced to feel better. My hope, once dead, began to revive, and to-day I feel better spirit ed than I have the past three years. 'I write this honing- you will nublish It, so that every one afflicted with DUi aeasea Lungs will oe inancea to take Dr. Wm. Hall's Balsam for the Lungs, and be convinced that Consumption can be Cured. I have taken two bottles and can positively say that it has done more good than all the other medicines I have taken since my sickness. My cough has almost entirely disappeared and I shall soon be able to go to work. For sale by U. O. Starr & Co. 24-ly Health and Happiness.

' Seated in a reclining chair In one of the elegant coaches of the Denver & Rio Grande railroad, your correspondent In company with one-hundred and fifty excursionists officers of the State aad different municipalities, left the splen did Union Depot at Denver to take part in the celebration of the opening of the D. A R. G. railroad to Durango, four hundred and fifty miles distant In La Plata Co., south-western Colorado. At Colorado Springs, Pueblo and other stations, large numbers joined the ranks of the excursionists. Passing Pueblo we sped In a Southerly -Ixection until we reached the Sangre De Chris to range of mountains. Threading along we pass np a winding valley rich in varied scenery by a very heavy grade, which would have been deemed impass ible a few years ago. But skyward creeps our train, two ponderous en gines puffing and groaning as we wind around Dump Mountain, steaming over bridges spanning fearful and ghastly chasms ground out ages ago In the glacial period. The timid falter and turn pale at aight of the awful deptha over and along which we glide on the shining steel track. The engi neer stands with hand on the throttle ready to set the air hrakea at the first unusual far of the train. Adown the gulches In the mountains dash, here and there, silvery streams that find their way into the river below. At length we reach Inspiration Point. There, in this cool and electrical atmosphere, we saw the bright sun of morning kissing the dew-drops from lofty mountain crests still high above us, and nestling below lay the valley in the bush of a breaking twilight, ahd iar. away In New Mexico the crests of the Spanish Peaks were baptized with a halo of glo rious sunlight. The memory of the scene will be undying. Words cannot describe Veta Pass, nor can the brush of the artist transcribe It to the canvas. From this on the railway passes thiough the San Luis Park, giving a view on the right of the Sierra Blanca moun tains. We pass through Alamosa on the west bank of Rio Grande, and look out on a park or plain, extending many miles in every direction. Antonio is soon reached, a town noted for its gin mills, and as a resort for roughs and bri gands, a place where men do not die, but painfully often depart with their "boots on." The lynching a few daya since of O'Connor, a Justice of the Peace who was in with all the murder ers, is an encouraging symptom, an avant courier of a better civilization. Twenty-three miles westward of An tonito we reach tbe deep, valley of the Los Pinos. The track follows along the brow of the hills in a snake-like course, sometimes doubling back upon itself with an astonishing grade of two hundred and eighteen feet to the mile. We pass Lot's wife, Phantom curve and scores of monumental rocks in all sorts of fantastlo form . lifting their heads into ether. Ere this rallraod track was laid man could not ride over these mountain fortresses, or wild goat scale these diz zy heights. The scene for ten miles through the Toltic Gorge has no equal in the old or new, world. Aa we swept ou around and through these moun tain crests, the moon rode high in the heavens with no cloud to cast a shadow upon tbe brow of peaks, or crags, or upon the shining waters of the Los Pin os, burnished like a sliver ribbon, 1,600 feet below us adown in the tortuous valley. Soon we reached an overhang ing crest of rock and the train darts into a tunnel cut. 600 feet through solid granite rock. Emerging, the train is stopped upon a bridge built into tbe rocks and the passengers, with bated breath and awestruck with tbe grauduer the scene, creep np the great rocks and peer into tbe awful chasm below, the cliffs of rocks on the opposite side ris ing heavenward 2,100 feet. A pistol shot fired by a fellow Bohemian, echo ed and re-echoed from aide to side of this awful gorge, and a rock rolled over the precipice went threshing and thundering from depth to depth until the sound was lost in the silence of the vast abyss, For miles as we swept on the moon painted pictures the wildest and wierdest, on cliffs, chasma and mountains. The scenery along tbe TOltio Gorge eclipses that of Niagara, and the engineering skill that in spite of such obstacles has thrown a com mercial pathway over, through and along this mountain gorge, at an eleva tion of 12,000 feet, demanda the high est rank among the grandest accom plishments of this conquering age. Our journey westward carried us into New Mexico as waa apparent by the Adobe homes of the "Greasers" here and there aeen among the dense pine forests that cover the valley of tbe Rio Chama. Here are seen vast stretches of land covered with a wealth of grasses sufficient to feed millions of cattle, while now but an occasional herd are seen. 1 Ms section is one or tne most Inviting to ranchmen and the opening of the Denver and Rio Grand will transform the whole region into a most prosperous grazing region. At Amargo, in New Mexico, a new exper ience broke upon our startled vision, a cloud not larger than a man 'a hand lay hugging the mountain at our right, just as the train awept into -the town, composed of a dozen shanties, with a cemetery where thirteen were planted In three months, ten of whom had gone off with their "boots on." Muttering thunder and the roar of the wind was heard in the near distance which was followed by rushsng waters com ing down the mountain aide picking up in its mad rage, ties, timbers, boxes and every thing that came in its wsy, until the track and plain as far as the eye could reach was a vast sea of raging waters. This la a genuine water spout of the mountains, and for filty miles wash-outs doomed uo to apend three days on the shortest kind of rations. We all learned tbe value of hard tack, and became expert in preparing and cooking, mushrooms and exploiting among Mexican ranches. During our delay the Division Superintendent, L. S. Hamilton, aummond 1,000 men to hia aid ; bridges were made, new tracka laid, wash-outs filled, and after a delay which every one regretted, we reached the moat ptomislng mining town in Colorado. Ptaks Mr. llldea Again a Candidate. There are certain unmistakable signs in the political horizon which indicate that Samuel J. Tilden has made up his mind to become again a candidate for the Presidential nomination of his party in the campaign of 1884. It is said that he has already got possession of the machinery of the Democratic party in the State ot New York to an extent that it will give him the control of the next Democratic State Convention, and that be will so use it as to secure the nomination and election of his own po litical friends. That much achieved, and the great Empire State " redeemed from Republican rule " and placed in a condition where her thirty-six Electoral votes will be cast for the next Demo cratic candidate, it will be becoming in Mr. Tilden to again appear before the National Convention of his party and demand the nomination as its standard bearer for the Presidency. It is hinted that the warring factioos in New York are all so hungry and tired standing out in the ' co'd that they are all willing tc bury their past differences and sit dpwn to a well-spread table, even though the ghost of Grammercy Park sits at the head and does tbe honors. John Kelly and his Tammany Hall friends now ad mit that their bolt two years ago, whicb gave the State to the Republicans then, and paved the way for the Republicar triumph in 1880, was a political mis take, so far as they were concerned, which was first-cousin to a crime. They are now so reconciled and hungry that they will gladly accept back seats in the next State Convention, and will promptly sneeze whenever their masters take snuff. It is said that three important factors have entered into the case to persuade Mr. Tilden to take the course that he is now resolved to pursue. . (1.) He be lieves that his record as Governor ol New York, in dealing with the Canal Ring and in reforming1 other crying evila and abuses in the administration ol affairs, has borne the closest scrutiny, and that it still furnishes a large amount of available capital for his party in the State to draw upon. He considers himself the strongest man in the Democratic party in New York to day, and that he is the most sagacious leader among them is freely admitted by those who are politically opposed to him- (2. Added to Tilden' s positive strength, and to the general feeling ot confidence that is felt among Demo crats of every hue in their ability to carry the State at the next election, is the hope that the Republicans have bo come so demoralized by the Robert-son-Conkling-riatt imbroglio that the triumph of the Democracy at the next election is already assured, it was charged last spring that Mr. Tilden bad a linger in the Senatorial contest that hung lire for eight mortal weeks at Albany, and that he was in close and friendly consultation with the leading members of his party. He (Tilden) was also credited with keeping the Democrat'e members of the Leg islature from agreeing to a compro mise whereby the party would have been a great gainer by tbe resigna tions of Conkling and Piatt That compromise looked to a union of the Democrats and Stalwarts, and the election of Mr. Conkling and a Democrat to the United States Senate. That would have been a positive gain to the Democracy, bnt the far-seeing eye of Mr. Tilden and his plans for the futuro, celfish and sordid as usual, would not permit it. He wanted the fight to go on in the Renub.ican ranks until Mr. Conkling was defeated by the votes of his own party associates, with out the aid of a single Democratic vote. Tbe Republican camp was on fire, and Mr. Tilden was determined that none of his friends should run with their buckets to help put it oat. He wished to see Mr. Conkling thoroughly soured by defeat in the house of his friends. (3). Mr. Tilden nnd his party associates firmly believe that he was fairly elected in 1876. aud that he was euchred out of the Presidency by the superior management of the Re- Eublicnn leaders. He and they also be eve that he ought to have been nomi nated at Cincinnati in 1890. in order to vindicate Tilden, the Democratic party and the large popular majority that was cheated out of their choice for the Presidency by the action of the Elect oral Commission and the installation of the "fraudulent" Mr. Hayes. But Mr. Tilden stood aside (because he couldn't help it), and quietly let the procession pass, with its military band wagon and its fuss and feathers. Gen eral Hancock was nominated, but he failed of an election. His defeat, Mr. Tilden thinks, has sufficiently demon strated the fact that tho Republicans will always be victorious in a campaign conducted as the Inst one Was. and that the real issue ought to have been made lat rear on the dishonest election of Mr. Hayes, with him as the candidate. As Mr. Tilden came nearer the Presi dency than any man of his breed of pol itics has in twenty years, it is not sur prising that he and his friends still en tertain the belief that he would be the successful winner in the next heat. Nothing would give the Republicans morepieasure than to encounter Gen eral Tilden again on the field of battle, and they hope his party will give the old man another chance. Chicago Journal. The Effects ef Drinking Sassafras Oil. David Brenner. James Root, Allen Swan and Benny Lotz, boys who worked in A Thalheimer's cigar box factory, in the absence of the foreman and the hands at their dinner, entered the cellar and got possession of a bottle of sassafras oiC which is used to per fume paste in manufacturing boxes and to prevent it from souring. Three of the boys drank copiously of the oil. The remaining boy, Lotz, took a small dose only. In a short time the boys woro jumping about the place perfectly crazv. When the foreman arrived they were wild and uncontrollable, and two meu were required to hold each boy. Their eyes were starting from their sockets, veins bulged out, faces red and inflamed, and jaws firmly set. They seemed to be in the agonies of death. The physicians were compelled to pry open the boys' jaws to administer emetics. For three hours the physi c'ans worked upon them until they were in a condition to be taken home. Lots revived sufficiently to say what had happeued to them. He sa d that they were told by one of the men that they should drink the oil to purify their blood. He imagined himself while under its influence to be perfectly black and with a band of black demons; that he was in the clouds, and then again down in a deep mine. He knows no one. Tbe other boys are not strong enough to relate their experience. Two of them are very 16w. What the result will be is not yet known definite ly. Brenner, who drank first, also imagines himself a negro. In his rav ings one of the boys jumped out of a window. Heading (-.) Cor. H. Y. Sun. Edison's Latest An Iron Bonanza In the Sands Along the Atlantic Coast. Mr. Thomas A Edison, the electrical wizard who has of late accomplished so many marvelous things, has perfected another remarkable invention that will no doubt work great revolution in the iron trade. The matter has np to the E resent been kept very quiet, ' but it has nally leaked out, notwithstanding the efforts of those who are financially in terested to keep it from the public. The machine, wherein electricity plays the prominent part, is a very simple con trivance, but nevertheless it will be the means of producing what has never been produced in this country before, and that is iron of the same quality as the best Swedish, and for a market price of about one-half that of the latter.' It had been believed for sometime that there was in the seashore sands of Long Island and along the Atlantic Coast indications of magnetite Iron, and examination proved that this was a fact, but hew to extract it from the sand was the problem.: Mr. Edison had some time ago Invented a process for extract ing gold dust from washings by the use of magnets, whereby the baser constitu ents were attracted into piles by means of three or four processes, and the gold and sand subsequently washed and sep arated. When the matter of securing iron ore from, the sea sands was pre sented to him a few weeks ago, he at once, went to work and perfected a process whereby with one exposure to magnets the valuable ore should be separated ' from the ' tanite," or iron coated with sulphur, with which it was mingled, and at the same time left free of the schist wherein it was lodged. To do this it became necessary to so gradate the electrical force that the true iron, having the greater attrac tive force, should be drawn nearest the magnet, while magnetite, or sulphur ore and sand, should fall in separate piles. Mr. Edison's separator for thus it may comprehensively be called con sists of a V-shaped trough fonr feet long and a little more than two feet deep, with a slit one-sixteenth of an inch wide at the bottom. Under this, at a dis tance of five feet, and resting on the ground, is a separator, the apex situated a little to one side of the trough above, so that the sand falling straight will strike on one incline and be forced in an opposite direction from that taken by the ore, which, striking the other side, Is slid off into a hopper or receptacle. A little less than half-way between the slit in the trough or sand receptacle and the ground, and of the same width, are a pair of large magnets, which receive their electrical, energy either from jars or steam generator, )ust as is desired, according to the plant. The object, aa I have above stated, is to extract the magnetite iron ore from the sand and titaniferous ore. The sand is shoveled into the trough and, being dry, falls through the narrow slit in a sheet four feet long and one-sixteenth of an inch in width. The mag nets are provided with just enough power to deflect the magnetite or block oxide of iron from a perpendicular fall and deposit it on the side of the separa tor opposite the sand, which, having no affinity for the magnets, falls direct to the ground, together with the titanifer ous ore. It is then taken up, placed in sacks and shipped. The process is very rapid. It may be asked what particular value is to be attached to this simple invention and where it is to be adopted. It is one of the most valuable of modern inven tions, and is to be made use of right here on the Atlantic coast, for the pres ent at least, and the Lord only knows where it may not be applied, for, ac cording to Edison's statements, the ocean shores are simply covered with those iron deposits. " Heretofore Swed ish iron has never been made outside of that country, where these sand deposits exist, and where the crystals of mag netite are very large. But here, right under onr very nose, there are, it ap pears, millions upon millions of tons of this sand containing incalculable amounts of the purest and best iron ore, for magnitito or block oxide of iron is the purest ore known, containing no phosphorus or sulphur. There are banks of this sand on Long Island alone twen ty feet high where there are layers upon layers of the deposits and these banks are from 100 to 150 feet in width. There is one strip of coast that has been pros pected that is twenty miles long. Re moving the white surface sand, there is usually found a deposit of black sand about ten inches in depth. About two inches below occur, another deposit. In these deposits U found the iron ore that is so valuable. It is estimated that about 40 per cent of the sand, is com posed of the two forms of iron ore magnetite and titaniferous while of this from 18 to 20 per cent is pure mag netite. Under the presont working by those who are managing the machine in ope ration about 10 per cent is extracted, but Edison says he can get more than this if he should take hold of it person ally. He gave the present operator a ten minutes' lesson one day, and that's all the instructions he had ; so he is nat urally working a littlo crude. New York Cor. Chicago Tribune. k Psychological Wonder A Young Lady Predicting II er Own Afflictions. There is in this city, says the Vir ginia City Enterprise, a young lady whose case is not only the most dis tressing imaginable, but which also is most curious and a puzzle for physi cians and all who are acquainted with her condition and the peculiar circum stances attendant upon and connected therewith. The young lady is a Miss Mary Kenney, aged about 18 years, who resides on the Divide. ' Previous to her illness she was a pupil in Prof. Flint's school, where she was distinguished for her close application to her studies and her quiet and ladylike deportment. She was ambitious to become a teacher, and studied very hard in order to be able to pass an examination. Some six weeks ago Miss Kenney told her mother and others that a great calamity was soon to befall her: that she would be stricken blind, deaf and dumb. In making this announcement she was mnch distressed aud wept bitterly. It was in vain that her friends tried to comfort her; she said it was a thing that must come. A few days later, while on her way home from school, she was suddenly struck blind, and was led by the hand the re mainder of the way home. Four physi cians, including Dr. Webber, county physician, have been attending the young lady since her illness, and have been unable to determine the cause of the malady which so suddenly seized her. After losing her sight she soon lost her hearing, and then ner vocal or gans became paralyzed. For several days past she has been unable either to hear, see or speak. Her disease appears to be of the na ture of paralysis, and this had yesterday extended to her legs and the lower part of her body. For some days she has had but little use of her hands, and then only under certain conditions. The most curious feature of her case, however, is that all this time she has been able to communicate with all about her though bereft of all her senses. This she has done in writing. In asking her a question it was necessary to do so in writing, her hand being laid on that of the questioner during the time he was writing. This being done she at onee wrote an answer to the question, but while doing so it was necessary for the questioner to place his hand on hers or to lightly hold the top of the pencil with which she was writing. All this time her eyes were closed and her head rest ing on her pillow in such a position that ahe could not have seen what was doing and she not blind. It appears that the young lady's is a peculiar organism that she has long been a sort of psychological puzzle. Many instances might be given of this peculiarity, but they nearly all concern people well known here and who do not wish to have their names mentioned. As to the character of these things, we may say that she in several instances felt impelled to go to persons who were strangers to her and tell them things that were for their good, and which made their hair almost stand on end, for the reason that her revelations showed that she knew almost every action oi their lives. In speaking of some per sons she said she knew every action of their lives from childhood. Another curious thing remains to be told. In Gold Hill, fully half a mile away from the residence of the girl, are two persons who appear to tie affected through her. . One of them is a boy about six years of age and the other a man of mature age. Since she has been stricken down these persons have felt every change that has taken place in the young lady's condition; have known it Instantly. She has had frequent con vulsions, and whenever one of these fit has seized her the man and the boy at Gold Hill have in some way been made aware of the fact. Also, whenever she was seized with a spell of vomiting (which spells were quite frequent) the fact was instantly known to the two per sons at Gold Hill. In order to prove this, persons interested in this curious business have made many qnick trips from Gold Hill to the Divide, carefully noting the time, and always found that the man and bey had exactly described the young lady's condition. A Florida Mastodon. We mentioned some weeks since the fact of the existence in Peace Creek of the remains of the mastodon. We are now informed of the discovery in the Lower Withlacoochee River of the al most perfect remains of one of this ex tinct race of gigantic animals. ' This in formation is furnished us by Mr. J. A Harrison, in person, of Eureka, Marion County. Mr. Harrison says the remains were found some short time since by Mr. W. J. Hogans and Mr. Morrison, while out hunting. They were fording the . -. . .. alu.nl - ,X1 . A V WVU V Ulllu Oh UtUI east of Stokes' Ferry, Marion County, twenty miles south of Ocala. .The bones lay grouped together as if they had not been disturbed, and it is thought the nearly complete skeleton can be recov ered. The mass was found in about two and one-half feet of water, which is the usual depth, except In time of freshet, when it rises four and a half or five feet. Ordinarily the river is fordable here. Mr. Harrison proposes to recover and restore the frame for a private collec tion. He showed us a portion of a right posterior molar of the lower jaw, which he brought with him on his present visit to Jacksonville. It is of largely added weight from petrifaction. It present one of the prongs of the root, the for ward prong and nearly half of the den tal surface of the tooth proper being gone, and this weighs over two pounds. It is thought the complete tooth must have weighed five or six pounds. The jawbone was brought away, and this and several other teeth have been ex tracted. . One of the femur or thigh bones was measured, and it is stated to be about five feet long, which will give a correct idea of the size of the animal. The jaw-bone taken away measured two feet long. So large a quantity of Indian arrows were found near the skeleton sufficient, it is thought to gather np a peck or half-bushel the conclusion is that the Indians killed the animal there on the spot where it fell, and that by its weight the frame has kept the position during the ages following the existence of these pre-historio beings. Of course all the bones have become fossilized to some extent, and thus are much heavier. That the animal was no small game in that day of its existence, or of its extinc tion (the choice of the term is a little doubtful), even to the stalwart tribes who we may suppose by analogy were their co temporaries is apparent from the quantity of the missiles necessary to the extinction of this specimen, and no doubt the occasion was a field day in Indian hunting. Jacksonville Union. The Stature ef Different Races of -fen. . In comparing races as to their stature, we concern ourselves not with the tall-' est or shortest men of each tribe, but with the ordinary or average-sized men who may be taken as fair representa tives of their whole tribe. ' The differ ence of general stature is well shown where a tall and a short people come together In one district. Thus, in Aus tralia the average English colonist of live feet eight inches looks clear over the heads of the five feet 'four inch Chinese laborers. Still more in Sweden does the Swede of five feet seven inches tower over the stunted Lapps, whose average measure is not much over five fnfll Amono tha tall a at rf m.nlrinrl em the Patagonians, who seemed a race of giants to the Europeans who first watched them striding along their cliffs draped in their skin cloaks ; it was even ' declared that the heads of Magalhaens' men hardly reached the waist of the first Patagonian they met. Modern travelers find, on measuring them, that they really often reach six feet fonr inches, their mean height being about five feet eleven Inches three or four inches taller than average Englishmen. The shortest of mankind are the Bush men and related tribes in South Africa, with an average height not far exceed ing four feet six inches. A fair con trast between the tallest and shortest races of mankind may be seen in the Patagonian and Bushman, whose head only reaches to the former's breast Thus the tallest race of men is less than one-fourth higher than the shortest, a fact which seems surprising to those not nsed to measurements. In general, the stature of the women of any race may be taken as about one-sixteenth less than that of the men. - Thus, in Eng land a man of five feet eight inches and a woman of five feet four inches look an ordinary well-matched couple.
