An Englishman.' Prediction About the Spring Veins; Fulfilled. The WHtjrabursr Water a Catholleoss orCnlveraal Remedy Tbe Oet tyebsirsr tiprlnv Kelonsra to ' .a Claaa not set Down .. In he Book. As the evidence is accumulating Uiat there has been discovered on American soil a medicinal spring, which belongs to a class that is not set down in the books and not recognized by popular opinion, but which nevertheless appears to supply the long-sought cathoiicon or universal remedy, the speculations of the English man, , Dr. Tompkins, who yUited the Gettysburg bnttle-field a-id spring, some years since, become interesting, especi ally as the waters of this spring had not at that time wrought- those curative miracles, ,. which . have., astonished, and ere astonishing, the world. Tbe Doctor, in his memorable battle field letter to an English newspaper, thus re fers to this then but recently discovered spring: . . - ." The unique and extraordinary char acteristics of this spring have attracted much attention.. But without sufiicient reason, as most mineral springs possess distinctive curative and other properties. Thus, for example, the Bath waters have been famed Bince the mythic days of the dim gray past, when the swine were seen to souse themselves in it, and when that mythic personage, 'King Bladud,' who has given bis name to so fine a part of the city, was cured of his scrofula, as a specific for the cure of cutaneous dis eases. Nature seems to have been won drous kind in the provision she has made for both food and medicine for man: The Divine hand is ever opened to fill all creatures, but especially man, with good. Knowledge and experience, in deed, seem to demonstrate that this means food suitable to all the human and brute kind, inhabiting any distinct spe. cific region, and, also, Buituble medicine for their several ailmeuts. Upon reflec tion, it would seem that this must be the correct theory. Thus in Nova Scotia, where the inhabitants live upon salted flesh and salted fish, and consume much adipose, matter, and where, in conse quence, they, become afflicted with salt rheum and. similar -complaints, Dame Nature .has given the ' Wilmot Mineral Springs, , in Annapolis,' the waters of which seem to be a specific for this one class of diseases. At Wiesbaden and at Baden Baden, in a region where tbe chill winds produce rheumutics as they bear the fierce blasts of the icy Alps through tbe gorges of the mountains, a mineral water iB given evidently designed for a stimulating warm bath, whose tempera ture, moreover, is retained at a high reg ister during a period of twenty-Ioer hours, after rembvsl from its source, irl accordance with some laws of nature quite occult. The peculiarities of the Qettyaburg spring differ from all these, in that it is pre eminently a cathoiicon, or mineral water, fitted to . almost every class of complaints. Whilst this is one of its marked features, it is a most remark able fact that this water is not vitiated by removal from its source, nor by exposure to the atmosphere. It is well known that, as the rule, exposure to the atmos phere, light and especially the solur rays, produce radical changes, both in colors, medicines, medicinal waters and chemi cal combinations; henoe certain physi cians often request that their medicinos should be kept closely corked or stopped, in order to exclude the atmosphere, and also that they should be placed quite removed from the light. - t or what rea son, it might be asked, has this quality of preservation been impressed upon the waters of thisf spring? . What is intended when we find that so powerful an agent for the restoration of health should pos sess that quality that renders it capable of being carried from place to place with out becoming vitiated? Now it seems to me that, admitting its powerful medical properties, which no one upon the testi mony adduced can deny, it Is possible that this remedy may become a medicine, and. as it were, a healing balm for the people. The ereat dramatist speaks of sermons in stones, nooks in tne running brooks, and good in everything.' Those words are philosophically trne as they are poetically beautiful.. The silent, peaceful stream at Gettysburg, lo tbe thoughtful and attentive, becomes sweetly vocal as the - mnsic of the spheres. It has a language natural and beautiful, but all its owu, It tells of universal healing and widespread bless ings to mankind. It is, in a word, like the air we breathe. And so, by purity of reasoning, tbe changeable character of all other mineral waters, except that derived from the springs at Gettysburg, indicates that the former must be) ased as a medicine at the Bpring, and on tbe spot whence they ate drawn; that they most not be carried away to any great distance from their rural babbling birth places. Now does it not seem that tbe Divine Goodness has thus impressed this mineral fluid, and endowed it with tbe principle of self-preservation, and has further stamped it with a curative power over nearly all diseases, that it may become a very water of life to all regions, and a source of relief to my riads of human sufferers? The self preservative power of this water is in deed a remarkable fact. Couple this with its power to prevent disease by in vigorating the system,'; and to alleviate or cure, and it at once becomes evident that no such a mineral water has ever been oflered to the public. The thera peutic virtues of other springs are exhib ited in their power to subdue only cer tain classes ot disease. Each spring con tains the charm which binds and tames the dangerous creatures which pounce and prey upon human happiness and htman life. One cures rheumatism and gout; another checks disease of the kid nejs and tbe parte related to this vital CIRCULATION. EVENING, JULY 20, 1874. organ; another operates upon the diges tive organs, for it soothes and heals, and strengthens the mucous surfaces; -another the myriad channels which we de nominate tbe pores of tbe skin. Each is, indeed, wonderful in its sphere. But here is a spring equally potent to heal all these classes of disease. - The testi mony to this effect is most overwhelming and unprecedented." For the information of the Invalid public, we would state that this water is put up in the following packages, and sold at the annexed rates, at the Spring: S gallon dnmljohn. ..!M.t3 75 ; ' ' ft gallon demijohn H 7 00 , , Case 2 doien quart bottles 8 00 Case 4 doien pint bottles 9 Oft I - ' If the neighboring druggist prefers to act as an agent for the quack medieine men to keeping this natural and legiti mate medicine, invalids need not, there fore, go without their remedy. They have only to address a letter to Whitney Brothers, General Agents, No. 227 South Front street, Philadelphia enclosing the amount. A postofGoe money order or check is preferable to greenbacks. They must also state whether they wish tbe water sent by express or freight. ' ' The expense of living here it) less than at any other watering place in the coun try. (George Hoppea, the proprietor of the large hotel at the springs, advertises at the following rales: $3 per day and $15 per week during July and August.) These are remarkable figures when it is considered that the hotel is as well kept as any at Saratoga, Newport or Long Branch. But there are a dozen hotels in the town close by, where persons , may live at almost any price desirable. , : A Bride and Her Doubt. ' ' , The woful predicament in which ' a Chinese would be bridegroom found him self is thai described-by a Yokohama (Japan) correspondent of the Cleveland Heraldt- - - ' ,- - ' - . A very curious story comes, to us frem China. .A bride was on her way in a sedan chair from the honse of her par ents to her husband's abode. Passing through a graveyard, the bearers of tbe chair noticed tbat their burden grew heavier. This, howover, they ascribed to fatigue.1 On reaching the bride groom's house, though, what was tbe dismay of the honest folk to find, on opening tbe chair, two brides instead of one two, thick, span-new brides, alike even to a hairpin. Confusion reigned, polygamy was im minent. Better counsel prevailed, how ever, and the about to be mother-in-law appeared and instituted a searching in vestigation. But even maternal eye! and instinct failed, and the old lady was obliged to give it up in despair, being bea-d to declare, sotto voce, that she never, knew that eirl was twins be fore." Just at this moment a bright thoneht occurred to tbe father, lie re membered that this girl was what the Chinese call a rip snorter at weaving, and he forthwith suggested that the two girls.be set to spinning, and the one who came out last be declared to be " t'other." No sooner said than done The girls were put in separate rooms, and the materials for spinning placed at hand. Ibe doors were locked, and watch and ward kept over them by the anxious parents and all the old ladies of the neighborhood. When the day was done the doors were opened and Ihe work examined. Won dor of wonders! Both girls had done the same amount: neither had a thread more nor less than the other. Tbe poor father pulled bis pig tail, and tramped about in a very indiscriminate way, while the mother sat down disconsolately in a corner and addressed the assembled company as " hussy." At last accounts the matter was still in a very mixed con dition. Nobody is able to tell which is which, and the would-be bridegroom, un willing to cast himself away on a dupli cate, has gone to. California to ease his aching heart in the washing pigeon at San Francisco. Tbe "Master of Heaven" has been summoned to drive away the devil that haunts the bride. In view of this true and veracious history, who will say tbat life is not a dream, and who is willing to cast a first stone at our Puritan ancestors of Salem witchcraft memory? ' ' Harnhal Concha. The lute Marshal Concha was thus described, a few days before his death, by London Times' correspondent: " Happily it seems that Marshal Concha inspires an extraordinary terror in every one. He wants everything done well, and looks after everything himself. He asks doctor to breakfast and pumps him thoroughly as to the minutse of his arrangements. He asks a commissariat officer to dinner, and causes him au at tack of indigestion by cross questioning. He has a way of showing yonng officers what they should do by telling them what he used to do when he was young. Concha is decidedly a nuisance to any subordinate who does not do his duty properly, and hence every one dreads his presence. In this respect be is quite an exception to the rule of Spanish gen-1 erals. He seems to me to treat a com-; nun soldier with more kindness than he 1 does an officer. He never gives any i notice when he intends departing, nor, once be is on the march, does he give any hint where be is going, or what be intends to do, and every person around him takes very good care not to put the question. AtIkboo Petrarch. Speaking of Avignon and the coming Petrarch festival in that town, the Lon don News says: "The incident which makes Avignon more famous in the world's annals than any other is one which happened on a toft spring evening in the cburch of St. Ciair, so long ago as the year of grace 1327. On tbe Gth of April in that springtide, young Fran cisco Petrarch, then a law student of twenty three, handsome in person and learned in books, being at vespers, looked up from his breviary and saw for the first time Laura de Sade, the 1 Fifteen Cents per "Week NO. 122 daughter of Audibert, of Noyes. It is : that glance, and all the tender passionate poesy which came from it. that Avignon is about to cele brate in this the Hvehundreth year since the death of the Italian lover. And Avignon undoubtedly does wisely even in the present nnromantic age to make a great occasion of the anniversary, for that same chance meeting in tbe church gave to the Italian language such lyric verse as the world will never let die. It helped to fix tbe Tuscan tongue in its final sweetness, variety and grace, far better than all the academies aid grammarians could have done; it opened to lovers forever a gold mine of eloquent and exquisite fancies; it made Avignon more universally known than all her other historical and warlike glories, and it rendered the Provencal lady of that place so famous that tbe whole continent talked about her. Vau clus and Avignon became spots of pil grimage for Laura-'s sake." A Cnseos riora) "OtTerlDfa." : The Garteolaube publishes an amus ing article on the theatrical claque in Berlin, in which tbe following is related about M'lle Vestvali, the female Ham let: "She wan fed to have bouquets and wreaths thrown to her. I demanded twenty dollars for it, which she said was too much for one night. But I ex plained the whole thing to her. ' Mad ame,1 I said, ' the twenty dollars are sufficient for two nights. To-day I and my men will throw the bouquets to you from the first tier. After the perform ance is over I shall take the flowers home with me in a basket, put them in water and leave them there all night and the following day. To morrow night no one in the audience will find oat that the bouquets have been nsed before.' Thereupon she paid me the sum I had demanded." SPECIAL NOTICE Schbkck'b Sei Wkio Tonic In the atmos phere experienced hers during the summer months, the lethargy produced by the heat takes away the desire for wholesome food, and fnquent perspirations reduce bodily energy, particularly those suffering from the effects of debilitating diseases. In order to keep a na tural healthful activity of the system, we must resort to artificial means. For this pur pose Bhenck's Sea Weed Tonio is very effec tual. A few doses will create an appetite and give frfcsh vigor to the enervated body. For dyspepsia, it is invaluable. Many eminent physicians have doubted whether dyspepsia caa be permanently cured by the drugs which are generally employed for that purpose. The tea Weed lonio in its nature is totally differ ent from sues, drugs. It oontains no corrosive minerals or acids; in fact it assists the regular oterations of nature, and sunulies her defi- ciences. The tonio in its nature so much re sembles the gastric juice that it i almost iden tical witb that fluid. The gastric juice is the natnral solvent whicn. in a neaitny condition of the body, causes the food to be digested; and when this juici is not excreted in suffi cient quantities, indicestioa, with all its dis tressing symptoms, follows. The Sea Weed Tonic peiforms the duty of the gastric juice when the latter is deficient. Schenck's Sea Weed Tonie sold by all druggist, eodl'irf-rfl SHIRTS.
