For the Belmont Chronicle. Remarkable Cure for Rheumatism —Insulate Your Beds. Some mx veeks since the writer was aitacKed with a pain in the left hip, lled bv i.hvsicians. 8ciatica. The rain extendcJ Ct.-n the leg to the ,nee and ankle joints, but was not mntinuoua durioc the first month. Af- trtliat time it erew worse, and in spite of snch remer'ies as I was using, I was unable to sleep but little for three nights in succession. In this condition caHed on DrS. Vagenhal8 and Kins man, a somewhat noted medical firm, now of Columbus, but recently of Lan caster. Ohio. I found Dr. WagenhaLs in. and without ceremony detailed to him my ailments. He said he had had painful experience in rheumatism, but had finally adopted a rather novel remedy, he thought, with great bene fit. But mine was a case of Sciatica, and he desired to apply this new rem edy in my case, as it was the first well defined case of Sciatica they had had since the introduction of this new the ory. The prescription was INSULATE THE BED YOU SLEEP ON. I wiis instructed to procure four glass cups, or plates, one for each bed-post fatand on, disconnect the bed from the wall or any outside object, and go bed when I wished. I insulated my bed as directed, and went to bed at 7 o'clock p. m., having rather an increas ed amount of pain in my hip and leg. At about 9 t'clock I fell asleep, but was soon waked up by some one coming to my room. I then found my system to in a very free state of perspiration my feel unusuallywarm, and I was comparatively free from pain. I soon went to sleep again, aud slept soundly until morning. I have been keeping this insulating process ever since, a period of some ten days or rather nights with like beneficial results. do not claim that an actual cure has been effected in my case, but the re sults thus far have proved, highly satis factory. Dr. Wagenhals has, by request, been lecturing recently to a Medical Society Col urn bus, on this new treatment of rheumatism. In one of these lectures, which vas ordered by the Society to be printed, the doctor reports some forty fifty cases of rheumatism treated at Lancaster and Columbus,, on this new theory: all of which were attended with the mast astonishing results. Ainong these was the case of General Tom. Ewing, who contributed a letter the subject, extracts ol which were quoted. I)rs. Wagenhals & Kinsman stand high in the medical profession, and in the community where they have long practiced. . , 1 have nothing to offer for the effect produced on the human system by in sulation, nor do I know that Drs. Wa genhals & Kinsman have any that they would care to promulgate without fur ther investigation. I deem it a subject well worthy the consideration ot our Belmont county physicians and scien tists. The remedy should, of course, more thoroughly tested and the re- fults trivr-n to the jiublic. Any one try it, without the aid of u physi cian, if ti.ey s'e proper, and with4ittle no expense. ISAAC WELSH. Armstrong's Mills, Dec. 30, 1874. -$1,000 off Talmage tiives a recipe for keeping times hard:. Let everybotly talk de prcssingly. When auy one fails in busines, put it all in the papers. Let business men keep up peretui)l com plaint. Let us have occasional editor ials inciting bread riots, and political speeches on the wrong of the laboring classes. ' Let everybody prophesy a hard winter. Let us all talk down in stead of up. Let us take no account of fact that flour is cheap, and that harvests are large, and God is good. WeBhall in this way be able to take another fuggot from the. poor man's hearth and knock another pane of glass of his window, and hinder the in to the . . her manufacturer from employing him. together now ministers, editors, capiltalists and laborers-let us give a long, deep groan, and keep it going till spnug, ana the tidies win do as as we could reasonably expect. Sleeping Cars. The bill introduced into the Ohio Legislature on the 4th inst., making unlawful for sleeping car companies charge more than a dollar a berth, a dollar and a half for a section, is a move iu the right direction. We have always considered the charge for the of a wood-stuffed bed, and a horse banket, for one night of recumbent, and close-curtained misery, exhorbitant outrageous. These compauies have monpolies, and so can command any price they choose for their patent toss ing boxes of discomfort. They know people have to either sit up cramped crowded.with back-ache,head-ache mashed stove-pipes ; or accept the lesser evil they furnish. , If there is anything upon which so much money expanded with so little economy as these polished, gilded, black walnut, rose wood cars, we would like to of it. If a little money wps used soften the beds, and civilize the blankets, people would willingly dis pense with some of ornamentation so lavishly bestowed. We hope to hear of the speedy pass aged of this bill, aud similar bills in other States. When the companies that their monopolies are in dan ger, we may expect td he ahlo to sleep the night at leastand get up with little less soreness in the morning, a more reasonable amount of cash. The change of Government m Ppain presents a phase of interest in the United States which has not yet been discovered. Heretofore, in considera tion of the difficulties surrounding the Spanisfc Republic, the United States has hesitated to vigorously press her demand, against Spain, on account of the Virginius and other questions. On the contrary England, which has had no love for the Spanish Republic and never recosrnized it. has pressed her demand for indemnity and been first. The change in Spain to a monarchy re lieves the United States from any sup pressed obligation to forbearance, for fear of discouraging a new and strug gling Republic. The indications from Washington are that the treatment of various questions with Spain are al ready being viewed by the Gevrm nient in this new light. The United States, it is said, will recognize the new Spanish Government as soon asAI- phonso establishes himself in Madrid, and instructions to that effect have been sent to General Gushing, our Minister there, with instructions also to press tbe Virginius settlement.- The Model Sheep Man. The best sheep man we ever heard of was a soldier of Stonewall Jackson.who saw somewhere how valuable aresheep for renovating worn out land, and after the cruel war was over he went home to his poor farm, aud bought thirteen ewes all that fortunatly, he was able to buy. He put them in a small field of briers and weeds, which they f oon destroyed. Then be fed them on bran and meal in the winter, and in the spring he had thirteen fine lambs. Sav in:; the manure, ne piantea the oiu brier patch with corn and harvested a fine crop. All his spare time was de voted to caring for the sheep. The next spring he had more lambs; he was. able to plant more corn : then came more lambs, when he sowed clov er and grew turnips ; and now to-day, as a result of such small beginning, he has several hundred tine sheep, free from disease, bringing him $2,000 a year, while his larm has become- ex tremely leruie, ana ne is a ricn man. We know that thousands and thous ands of poor- youna men have n free course open to them to become, wealthy by beginning tbe same way. ' ' ' But tbe trouble is, the way is too humble and slow; they want to get along faster ; they have no patience, no faith, no pluck. Truly, it does seem small business to wacth a dozen sheep, as if it was beneath tbe attention or a britrht American youth : but if said youth will look the subject all over, he will see it worthy ot an his powers. A youtiir man can well afford to sit down with h dozen sheep on the plains, live a dug-out, and feed on antelope meat, rather than undertake to become in dependent in a city on a clerkship of a year. Tribune. ..x i Magruder's Goat. Mrs. Magruder's baby is carried out by the nurse now, since the accident to its carriage. - Magruder though: it would be a good idea to have a tain e goat to pull the coach, and he bought one for the purpose; but one day the goat met another goat that differed from him iu politics or religion, or something, and each undertook tocon vincethe other by jamming him in the skull. Every time Magruder's goat would rear up preparatory to ma king a lunge forward, Magruder's ba by would lurch over backward, aud when Magruder's goat struck tiie other goat the concussion would shake the milk in the Daoy'6 stomacn into but ter. And sometimes the other goat would aim at Magruder's goat, which would dodge, and then the other goat would plunge headforemost into the coach, and mash the baby up in the most frightful mauner. And in the midst of the contest a' couple of dogs joined iu, and Magruder's goat backed and tilted the coach into the gutter, and the dogs biting around kind of generally, would snap at the goat and cause it to whirl the baby around just time for the bite; until at last the goat got disheartened and sprang through the fence, leaving the coach on the other side, and it struggled franti cally to escape, while the other goat crowded up against the baby in order avoid the dogs, and finally knocked buby out, and butted the coach to splinters. They say the way Mrs. Ma jrulfr eynl Magruder thut afternoon, when thy brought thehahy home mu- i . i i .... i i - i ..... lliHieu anu uism-vfien, HaiMiiijiiy nw ful to behold; but che. didn't speak to him for a week, and he had to soften down by buying her an ostrich feather for her winter hat. The goat is still at litrtre. Anybody who wants him can have him free of charge. Ma- cruder doen't recognize him when he meets tbe animal upon the street. a Max Adeler. a A Cincinnatian Badly Swindled. Cincinnati, Jart. 6. Joseph Zanone, an Italian confe-tioner on Fifth street, this city, was yesterday swibdled out or nearly fiUOU oy two men wno rep resented that they wished to dispose of a lot of one hundred dollar bills for small bills, offering one hundred dol lars on the thousand for the exchange. When Zanone produced his money it was found they did not have a sufficient number of hundred dollar billswith them, and it was agreed that the sum they had with them and Mr. Zanone's money should be placed together in a trunk and left in ZanoBe's confection ery, the key being held by one of the sharpers. The three proceeded to In dianapolis, where the two sharpers represented they had a business estab lishment, to get more bills. Shortly after leaving the confectionary one of the sharpers, on some pretense absented himself from the party, returned to the confectionery, and took the money from the trunk. He then rejoined th other two and proeeedod to Indianapo lis, where Mr. Zanone lost track of them, and on his return to Cincinnati found his money gone. to be Ready Money. Keep ready money on hand if you can. No matter if it is only a little sum. It it is only sufficient for the current expenses, it is a groat convenience, to say the least. Anyone who has tried and compared the credit with the cash eystc.ru, will readily ad mit the correctness of tho above re mark. When you buy for cash you generally get things cheaper get bet ter weight and measure, and all the favors the dealer can extend to his pa trons. On the chronic crodit system, the matter is usually reversed. If you try to avoid credit by borrowing, you improve matter very little if any. Hence we give this advice, 'Turn an honest penny' whenevtryou can, and always havesuflicient money on hand to meet your small engagements. us of his as so The Tender Passion Behind the Bars of the Ohio Penitentiary. From the Columbus Journal, Dec. 30. There is something trite in the cap tion of this article, but the alliteration is, just at this time, suggested bya case of constancy in love behind the strong locks of the Ohio Penitentiary. The tender passion burns under the striped jacket of the prisoner as well as under the Marseilles waistcoat and polished bhlrt front of tbe young man of society. The dull thud of the prison bolts, the "tramp, tramp" of the prison march and the drxadful solitude or the nar row cells, cannot nullify the electricity which Cupid's darts have introduced, and it is doubtless a fact that many weary souls in the closely guarded stone mansion beat responsive to tbe emotions of loving hearts outside. But here is a case of mutual affection with in the walls: Thomas Miles.about thirty-five years old, was convicted of burglary in Lick ing county; was sentenced to two years imprisonment, and was received at the Penitentiary on the 7th of May, 1873. At the same time a woman who was tried, under the name of Ann McFar land, was received, she having been convicted as an accomplice of Miles, and having received the same sen tence. The conduct of both prisoners has been good, since their confinement, and under the encouraging system of 'gaining time' which has prevailed for some time in the prison, they will, if they continue in good behaviour, be entitled to liberty on the 31st of Janua ry, 1875. Their, credit and demerit marks are not precisely coincident, but on account of circumstances to be sta ted hereafter, it is understood that a small difference will be overlooked. After many months of patient ser vice in the female department, during which time enduring love had been hidden under an exterior of propriety, Ann began to make inquiries about Miles, and finally told tbe guard un der whoso" care she was, that Miles was her loVer; that she was innocent of the crime for which she was imprison ed; that she allowed herself to be con victed that "he might be in close prox imity to her lover during his incarce ration, and that her heart still yearned lor the lover of brighter days, i The reader will pay the usu.nl price for this paper, and take as much of Ann's heroics as to innocence as he chooses; it will cost him no more to believe the whole story than to accept a modicum. But as to tne undying love, no gener ous person will refuse to gulp . the whole recital. Ann's statement was communicated to the Warden, and Miles was called into the office He expressed a hearty reciprocation of the love expressed by 'Gentle Annie,' and signified a deter mination to make her his wife at the enrliest practicable time. The prison ers were then permitted to have an in terview, in presence of the Warden. The meeting was a touching one; there was 'ftn oUtgushing of long pent-up feeling, and a union of two hearts la cerated by separation. Then, beneath the shadowing turrets of Ohio's chief penal institution, there was a renewal of vows of constancy such as would add poetry to the dialogues of Romeo and Juliet, and as romantic as thesoft whisperings in the groves of Put-in- Bay m a summer evening. Both ex pressed a dt'i-ire for tnatrinioDy, and a programme was arranged. At noon on the 3lst of January Miles aud Ann are to be married by the chaplain in the Prison chapel, and from there they will go out into the world joined to gether by bands that can be burst asunder only by desth or a divorce court. Ann say3 her true name is Nancy Jane Scott. She is a woman of comely appearance. Some generous men main tain that all women are more or less beautiful. We defer any decided opin ion on the romantic Nancy Jane until we can see her embellished with the paraphernalia of a bride. The officers of the Penitentiary have expressed their intention to purchase and present wedding dress. . Learn a Trade.

On the twenty-first anniversa ry of his birthday he went to his mas ter and told him his time was up, and he certainly expected important pro motion in the merchant's service. But Stephen Girard said to him: 'Very well. Now go and learn a trade.' What trade, sir?' ' 'Good barrels and butts must be in demand while you live. Go and learn the cooper's trade, and when you have made a perfect barrel bring it to me.' The young man went away, and learned the trade, and in time brought his old master a splendid barrel of his own make. Girard examined It, and gave the maker two thousand dollars for it, and then said to him: 'Now, sir, I want you in my counting-room; but henceforth you will not dependent upon the whi;n of Ste phen Girard. Let what will come, you have a good trade always in reserve.' The young man saw the wisdom and understood. Years ago, when the middle-aged men of to-day were boys, Horace Gree ley wrote: 'It is a good source of consolation to that when the public shall be tired us as an editor.we can make a satisfac tory livelihood at setting type oriarm ing; so that while our strength lasts, ten thousand blockheads, taking of fense at some article they do not un derstand, could not drive us into the poor house.'

The noble and gifted poured into the gorgeous saloons. Silks rustled, plumes waved, and jeweled embroideries flashed from Genoa vel vets. Courtly congratulations fell from every lip, for the Duke de Montre had made a new step in the path to power.

Droz, a mechanic of Geneva, produced a clock which excelled all others in ingenuity. On it were seated a negro, a shepherd, and a dog. When the clock struck, the shepherd played six tunes on his nute, ana the dog approached and lawnea upon mm. This wonderful ma chine was exhibited to the King of Spain, wno was greatly delighted with 'ine gentleness ot my dog,' said Droz, 'is his least merit. If your Majesty touch one or tbe apples which you see in tbe shepherd's basket, you win admire tbe animal's fidelity.' The King took an apple, and the dog flew nis nana, Daraing so loud, that the King's dog, which was in the room, began to bark also. At this the court iers, not doubting that it was an affair witchcraft, hastily left the room, crossing themselves as they departed. Having desired tbe Minister or Marine (the oily one who ventured to remain) ask the negro what o'clock it was, the Minister did so, but obtained no reply. Droz then observed that the negro had not yet learned Spanish, upon which the question was repeated Freucb, when the black immediate answered htm. -At this prodigy the firmness of the Minister also forsook him, and he retreated precipitately, declaring that it must be the work ot supernatural being. at to The two-year-colt, Charles Dickens, California Patchen, was recently sold in San Francisco for $5000.

Teaching Hints. Teaching school and keeping school are two widely different affairs. A popular teacher Is not always a good teacher, nor an unpopular teach er a poor one. Whipping is the fruitful parent of most school disorders. Ventilation tends to secure pure blood, sound body, active brain and good lessons. School hres should be bunt a little previous to a quarter to nine o'clock. If teachers arrive at school later than pupils it seems as though the pupils were the most interested. School bouses were not built for play houses notice recesses and mornings. Teachers should try to associate with the people among whom they teach. liemember that reading, spelling. writing and ciphering are the topics we shall use most, and consequently ought to know best. Order is said to be Heaven's first law. but it would seem to be the last law of some teachers. Schools may be spoiled by too much rigor. Teachers should prepare each lesson as regularly as pupils should. Mx hours' wort per day is the school day of lasy teachers only. v hy do many pupils 'go through' textbooks many times and then not know their contents? A well recited lesson is not always a well known lesson. The moral nature of puuils is as worthy of cultivation as tho Intellec tual. Industrious, orderly, civil teachers usually find the same qualities in their pupils, for 'as the teacher, so is the pu pil.' y Written work should be required in every branch of study. Some teachers expect their pupils to progress, but make no effort to progress themselves. A reading exercise is something more than a pronouncing exercise, a pause ex ercl-e, or an inflection exer cise, and requires as much study as any other school task. Lazy pupils always like concert reci tations they call them splendid. Teachers who use the text book at every recitation really say by actions that they do not know the lessons they are bearing. Never fail to inspect all written work unless you wish the next poorly done. Our best teachers are the best sub scribers to educational works poor teachers don't need them. The art of questioning is known to few teachers, and practiced by fewer. A tidy school room is an honor to the teacher. "Study your lessons five times," gen erally secures its study one-fifth of a time. Many educational ladders have the lower rounds missing. Not 'how much' but 'how well' is the motto of a good teacher, and the foun dation of good scholarship. If teachers could 'see ourselves as others see us' fewer bad habits would be copied by pupils.
