The disease is so called because persons at tacked by it. are ant to fall suddenly, as if from a violent mow upon (he head. Though sudden in outward mani festation, apoplexy is usually the con sequence of gradually augmenting morbid conditions. The disease com monly understood by this name is an affection of the brain, caused by an over distention of the blood vessels, or their rupture and the consequent effu sion of blood into the brain substance ; in either case the pressure upon the great uerve centres produce paralysis of the mental and physical powers, with the consequent loss of conscious ness and motion. The degree of fatality depends upon the amount of pressure, the itnpoitance of the parts involved, re is tin* time elapsing before the press relieved and the occurrence of c< cation ; of these latter the most common are inflammation and consequent de struction o:' the brain tissue, where the clot from effusion of blood lias been formed. Should this process take place to any considerable extent, death is un avoidable. In flume cases where the effusion has been hut slight, one of two *smay take place, the absorption of the clot or its inclosure by the pro cess of inflammation in a sack, thus separated from contact with the brain In file causes of apoplexy are included all those which excite undue flow of blood to the vessels of the brain, such as a highly nutritious diet, with but little physical exercise. The use of alcoholic liquors and various drugs, such as opium and those of similar action, which tend to produce cerebral congestion, among other pre disposing causes, may lie named a diseased sta'e of the walls of the blood vessels which occasion their over dis tention or rupture, an • diseases of the brain, by w hich its substance becomes softened or wasted to such an extent as to deprive the vessels of their normal support. The symptoms of this disease in the lirst stage, before the distention of the blood vessels lias reached its cliiii.i*, nr effusion has taken place, are a feeling of fullness in the head, with vertigo, pressing, throbbing headache, red, bloated face, congestion of the ds of the eyes, oppressed breathing and hard, rapid pulse. After effusion has aken place, or increased distention oi the ere at un lor stimulating V 0M of the vessels, loss of eoriKciousuesH, contraction followed by dilation of the pupils, with insensibility to light, mavy, stertorous breathing, paralysis of various organs and slow, irregular pulse. Should the disease progress arils a fatal termination, the •reathing becomes more labored and slow, the. pulse slower and lar, ami general paralysis of all the ■ • lrieg If improvement sets organs increases, in, the contrary pheuomei uitli gradual return to < a takes pint sciousuoss, ♦ r of speech and mol ton. I" 'institutions ting cattses ack of apoplexy, •itli Though persons ot all may from exposure t be made liable toan hose of a full habit k h rt * develop! >ad chest, with I mi t of are most apt, the more so as their diet and habits are of a nature to favor sanguineus con gestion of the brain. As prevention of apoplexy all s as have be sedulously avoided. The diet should lie plain and nutri i lating drinks, even coffee, should be avoided; abundant physical exercise should he taken, avoiding exposure to the heat of the sun, which, duiiug the heated term, uuder the name of sun stroke, is a frequent cause of ai*oplexy. Persons subject to congestion to the head should be careful to have their clothing at the neck loose, ho as not to obstruct the return of blood from the cranium. Should a person fall in an apoplectic fit in the absence of a physi cian, the neck clothing should be loosened, the head aud upper part of the body raised in such a manner as not to bend the neck, and cold appli cations bo applied to the head. Former ly bleeding was resorted to in all cases of sauguiuous congestion, but of late years this practice has been almost entirely dropped, partly because it has beeu found to be productive of more injury than good, and mostly because remedies in the form of drugs have beeu found which accomplish the relief sought more speedily and without causing injurious sequences. i for should be montium d ail in. u in in a in the the its and the and the to a E.

Dr. Oliver preached on Sab bath twice, in the morning at Union church, and in the afternoon at Friend ship, to large and attentive congrega tions. The sermon was a model for arrange ment aud diction iu the fore arguments were clear,pointed and full of force. The ser was stirring and eloquent. The people were delighted with the preaching at both places. At the close of the service in the afternoon the Doctor sang and played on the organ a piece of music, "on the immortality of the soul," which drew tears to the eye of many of the congre gation. The people will welcome the Reverend gentleman in their midst, whenever he may see proper to visit them again. The pastor of this charge is doing a good work here The congregations i large.

Yesterday was the last day oftheGer inan Volks-fest at Seheutzen Park, and in consequence a large crowd was in at tendance, those who are capable of judging putting the figures dow tween 4,000 and 6,000, and people were constantly going and coming uutil late in the. evening. In addition to the gathering of Germans, many American citizens were in attendance, and every one entered into the festivities with a good will and the last da y of the festi val was an enjoyable one to all bands. As usual iu large gatherings of this kind objectionable characters make their presence very conspicuous,but the prompt action of the committee in charge,aided by the special oilicers,pre vented them from creating any distur bance and when a row occurred these belligerents were promptly ejt clod. The first Regiment Band furnished music for tlie merry dancers, and the pavilion w'as constantly crowded, and when the German waltzes were in pro gress, which were the favorites, the floor w'as literally packed. The Pfeiffer Harmony Band, of Philadelphia, also rendered excellent music iron the pa vilion south of the building. The colored minstrels attracted gen eral attention, and when performing they were surrounded by an immense crowd. The picture gallery, wheel of fortune, flying horses, striking ma chines and other amusements were lib erally patronized aud all day long every one appeared to have plenty to do. Sauer-kraut, beer, and other refresh ments disappeared as if by magic, and a thriving trade was done at all the stands. The shoot ing gallery was kept in constant operation and some exciting contests took place. Among the crack shots were Chris. Bauer, Charles H. McWhorter, .and J. P. Theodore Fuekel. The foot race between Mr. Fuekel and officer Townsley was quite exciting, and the two men, being heavily built., went puffing and blowing along the course and came in on the home stretch like steam engines. The officer won the race amid loud applause. Annie Iieyerlein, only eight years old, caught the sheep in the race gotten up for the amussment of children, hut w\ s unfor tunate enough to lose it ou her way home, it having broke the string around its neck aud escaped. The "dude " foot race, between Jones and Johnson, was an interesting con test, and was won by Jones. The wheelbarrow race, and other festivities were highly interesting, aud the race track was filled with fast steppers all the afternoon. Mrs. F. Scheu was accidently ran against and painfully injured, but Dr. Ogle being summoned, applied the proper remedies, and the lady was con veyed to her homo in a carriage. The festival kept up until af er midnight, and closed, after a run of three days, with great satisfaction u» every one, its :ess exceeding the expectations of the sanguine.

Middletown, Del., Sept. 19, 1883. —The .second day of the exhibition at this place dawned bright and clear, and the weather was much pleasanter than the opening day,in consequence of which the attendance was largo, there being between 800 and 1,000 people ou the grounds. The exhibits are all in posi tion and make a much better appear ance than yesterday. The ladies who were appointed to act as judges of fancy work, preserves, jellies, etc., were kept, Imsy this morning in examining the former aud tasting the latter, in order to award the premiums in a proper manner. Nearly the entire day was; consumed in this manner and the list of awards will not be ready for a day Among those awards,however, was Me Lear aud Ken dall, of Wilmington, wb premium on a sp; sion top pDicton.

They have introduced sev novelties this season which attract more than a passing notice. Among the latest is a monkey, termed the great. African dodger. The animal is chained to a post in the centre of a large canvass shed a id he is used as a target for those who w ish to invest five cents for three base balls to throw at him. He deserves bis name, for there was not one out of fifty that could hit him. He is as sharp as a steel trap and is very rarely caught napping. These various amusements help to pass the time away between heats, and the grand chorus of voices were very entertaining A Wilmington peanut vender is doing a good business'here, and nearly every lady on the ground was eating peanuts this afternoon Without these the ladies would care little for tlie fair, judging from the way they disappear at their bauds.

The trotting to-day was not extra,and with the exception of one or twm heats was devoid of interest.. Last, year there was good racing, and hut little jockeying, but this year it is all jockey ing and no racing, and in consequence several of the drivers have been lined by Mr. Churchman, the starting judge. The first race to-day was for Peuinsu best, in three, for a purse of$100. There were five entries ami W. S. Sparks, Galena, Md., b. g. Sherman ; Alday Clements, Crumpton, Md., b. m.

Even in hou rework the brain may save the body a great deal of labor. A woman who plans her work beforehand always accomplishes a great deal more than her less methodical sister, and w irli less fatigue to herself. Before she rises in the morning her day's duties are thoroughly arranged, aud the order in w hich the different details are to be carried out is quite decided upon. It makes all work easeir to have it thus planned beforehand , and many a weary i many bright half hours to herself every week if she would but inaugurate the system. It is like packing a trunk. How easy it is for one skilled in the business to pur. in a third more than one who throws tilings to gether just }*t they come ! It is a pleas ure to look back oil a well-planned day and see what has been done. People whose days are full of idleness aud ease do not have the monopoly of happiness byany means. Those who have nothing to do except make themselves comfortable are generally peevish and discontented.
