PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER, FEBRUARY 22, 1868.
TWO TRUTHS. Helen Hunt Jackson. "Darling," he said, "I never meant To hurt you;" and his eyes grew wet "I would not hurt you for the world 1 Am I to blame if I forget?1' "Forgive my selfish tears l" she cried. "Forgive! I knew that it was not That you would mean to hurt me love; I knew it was that you forgotl" But, all the same, deep in her heart It inked this thought, and rankles yet. When love is at its best, one loves So much that he can not forget 1 THE SOFTENING TOUCH OF TIME Doesn't Get Half a Chance to Beautify the Buildings at Washington. IJoaqain Miller's Letter. Now I have "made a covenant with mine eyes," a3 Job said, to not find fault. Having in previous letters per suaded United States senators to keep their big schoolboy heels down off the desks; having laughed them out of the foolish idea of going into "executive session," and clearing the galleries merely because they wanted to smoke, and having also banished the ever .present spittoon, or at least reduced the annual bill for spittoons more than one half, I feel that I have done enough for the capitol, and that more interference or advice might be misunderstood. But I must pronounce against this business this brutal custom of 'scraping down our marble buildings as soon as they begin to take on the dignity and come liness of time and color. Now, wnat would you think of a man who would go into the Dresden gallery and give Haphael s Madonna a scrub bing with soap and sand and ashes I Or let us suppose the Greeks or Romaics had scrubbed and scraped their marbles as we do in Ameri a. How much of them would have been left for us to look upon , Let me tell you, for a fact, that if any mary, or even any munici pality, should attempt to scrape or scrub a building or any marble of any kind in Italy, why, the artistic and sensitive Italian would simply "make Home howl." Why can not people who have charge of our great structures learn a little something from those ancient states where art first took form in marble. The Greeks and Romans always let time and the elements soften the outlines of their temples, and no piece of architecture .was complete that had not been rounded down and subdued in tone and color by the perfecting touch of time. t ut hero at Washington the build ings are perpetually defaced by scaf folds; and scrape, scrape, scrape. All the year through, and nearly every where you lift your eyes, it is scrape, scrape, scrape, " till the noise, the dust, the ghostly, glaring sight of the newly scraped; and skinned, and scratched, and mutilated columns and walls drive you out of town. Why, even England, half-civilized as she is in many things, knows much bet ter than to lay profane hands on mar ble. I have been very familiar with St. George's gate, Hyde park, the past fif teen years. It is almost black. But it has not been touched since it was placed there. It will never be touched. Nature must take care of marble after it has found its place. And the sooner it takes tone from the elements and the softening touch cf time, the sooner it becomes "a thing of beauty." For what so offends the eye as this bold and glaring and glittering white marble? Use of Electricity in Bleaching. (Chicago Herald. 1 Cotton manufacturers in St. Peters burg are much interested at present in the successful application of electricity for the purpose of bleaching cotton and flax fibers, as well as tissues. The ma terial is steeped in water, which is then decomposed by electricity, the o :ygen which is thus set free at once acting on the fii'.ers. This process has been found to occupy very considerably less time than the ordinary one. The Chinese Legend of the Creation. Chicago Tribune. Chinese legends say that in the lie ginning a vast egg was divided into two parts, and a being came forth called Poon-K Wong. He took the upper half of the shell from which he had sprung and formed the heavens; out of the lower he made the earth. Two clouds of vapor met and blended, and there sprang from the union a son and a daughter, whose descendants are the millions of China. Studying iVarine Animals. lArkansaw Traveler. A French physiologist, Dr. Pegnard, is endeavoring to study marine animals under their natural conditions, an ap paratus designed by C ailletet enabling him to .watch the creatures in water under any pressure ' up to that of G50 atmospheres, which corresponds with that of the sea at the greatest depths at which dredgings have been made about four miles. A new hobDy-horse has" been devised for boys. It consists of the model o. a horse mounted on a tricycle. It is driven by means of the forward wheel, as in the case of an ordinary tricycle, the steering handle appearing above the horse's neck about which the bridlo should be held. Motion is given to the horse's legs by crauks connected with the wheels. Terr: tori 1 Statistics.

The Snv l!e,t Boo'i in the World. "S The smallest book in the world is half v5?ze of a Postage stamp, and is an edition of the sacred book of the Sikhs, belonging to the earl of Dutlerin. The prison population of Great Britain was twice as large in-1850 as it is now. A Remarkable Case. Under the above heading the "Don caster Reporter" of July 6, 1887, pub lishes the following in its editorial col umns : Our readers may recall the circumstance of a young clerk, named Arthur Richoid, falling insensible on the Wheatley Lane in this town some time ago, and being picked up, as he continued perfectly helpless, and taken in a cab by two gentlemen to the office of F. W. Fisher, Esq., the solicitor who employed him. On restoring him-to consciousness it was ascertained that he was afflicted with what seemed to be an incurable disease. When he was able to speak he said he had been to his dinner and was on his way back to his work, when suddenly his head was in a whirl and he fell in the street like a man who is knocked down. On coming to his senses in the solicitor's office he' thought what this might mean, and feared he was going to have a fit of illness, which we all know is a very dreadful thing for a poor man with a family to care for. With this in his mind he at once sought the best medical advice, telling the doctors how he had been attacked. They ques tioned him, and found that his present malady was exhaustion of the nervous system, resulting from general debility, indigestion and dyspepsia of a chronic nature. This in turn had been caused by confinement to his desk and grief at the loss of dear friends by death. The coming on of this strange disease, as described by Mr. Richoid, must be of interest both to sick and well. He had noticed for several years previously, in fact, that his eyes and face began to have a yellow look; there was a sticky and unpleasant slime on the gums and teeth in the morning; the tongue coated; and the bowels so bound and costive that it induced that most pain ful and troublesome ailment the piles. He says there was some pain in the sides and back and a sense of fullness on the right tide, as though the liver were enlarg ing, which proved to be a terrible fact. The secretions from the kidneys would be scanty and high-coloredi with a kind of gritty or sandy deposit after standing. These things had troubled Mr. Richoid a long time, and after his fall in the street he clearly perceived that his fit of giddi ness was nothing more than a sign of the steady and deadly advance of the com plaint, which began in indigestion and dys pepsia. His story of how he went from one physician to another in search of a cure that his wife and little ones might not come to want is very pathetic and touching. Finally he became too ill to keep his situation and had to give it up. This was a sad calamity. He was appalled to think of how lie should be able to live. But God raised up friends who helped to keep the wolf from the door. He then went to the seaside at Walton on-the-Naze, but neither the change, nor the physicians who treated him there, did any good. All being without avail he visited London, with a sort of vague hope that some ad vantage might happen to him in the me tropolis. This was in October, 1885. How wonderful, indeed, are the ways of Providence, which dashes down our high est hopes and then helps us when we least expect it. While in London he stated his condition to a friend, who strongly advised him to try a medicine which he called Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup, saying it was gen uine and honest, and often cured when everthing else had failed. He bought a bottle of a chemist in Pimlico, and began using it according to the directions. He did this without any faith or hope, and the public majr, therefore, judge of his surprise and pleasure when after taking a few doses he felt great relief. He could eat better, his food distressed him less, the symptoms we have named abated, the dark spots which had floated before his eyes like smuts of soot gradually disap peared, and his strength increased. Before this time his knees would knock together whenever he tried to walk. So encouraged was he now that he kept on using Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup until it ended in completely curing him. In speaking of his wonderful recovery Mr. Richoid says it made him think of poor Robinson Crusoe, and his deliver ance from captivity on his island in the sea; and added, "But for Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup the grass would now be growing over my grave." Our readers can rest assured of the strict truth of all the statements in this most re markable case, as Mr. Richoid (now resid ing at Swiss Cottage, Walton-on-the-Naze,) belongs to one of the oldest and most re spected families in the beautiful village of Long Melford, Suffolk, and his personal character is attested by so high an au thority as the Rev. C. J. Martyn. We have deemed the case of such importance to the public as to justify us in giving this short account of it in our columns. Bone Meal!
