CHOLERA is rapidly mov
ing westward and will soon
appear in this country. In
order to prevent disastrous
effects from its ravages every
preventive should be em
ployed, and the system
should be in perfect condi
tion. At this season of the
year the system is in a weak
state and easily susceptible
to dangerous disease. - Pain
in the back, weariness, las
situde, headache, dyspepsia,
indigestion, kidney and liver
complaints are but the result
of neglect. During the last
visitation of cholera to this
country no medicine was
found equal to Mishler’s
Herb Bitters, both as a pre
ventive and cure, and it has
been equally successful in
all the diseases above men
tioned. It renews and in
vigorates the blood, restor
ing to health and strength,
and thus shielding the
system from disease.

A Graphic Description of this

Head before /hr Henn Cnllrfr Nocn/tAc Associ

The ship Jeanette was lilted out for
Arctic exploration by James Gordon
Bennett, of the Ntw York Herald, and
sailed from San Francisco. August 8,
18711. She was commanded by Lieut.
DeLoug and live oHicers of tin United
States navy, carried two scientists, and
w;is manned ky twenty-four men.
Touching at St. Michaelo, Alask Be
took aboard forty dogs and two Eskimo
drivers. She passed Behring’s Strait
on tbe 28th, and coasting to the west
ward along the north coast of Siberia
came upon Xordenskjold’s winter
camp. From this point she was headed
toward Wrangell l and. On September
fi DeLong found what lie consideied
the lead lietween the Siberian and
American ice-pucks, sailed into u, aud
that night the ship was frozen in at a
point about tweuty-eight miles north
west from Herald Island. From this
time until July 11, 1881, the unfortu
nai jrew lived
The vessel was in constant danger of
being stove in by the enormous pressure
of the ice. In November the ice be
gan to break up and hall the floe split
away leaving the ship turned on her
starboard bilge. She then got adrift,
hut was soon frozen in and suf
fered greater pressure from the ice
than before. Tne deck planks would
break from their fastenings and tbe
ship’s joints would snap like rifles.
Dogs and sledges were kept on tbe ice
in readiness for departure, and at night
the men would lie down beside their
knapsacks, expecting the crush at any
moment. In January, 1880, the vessel
sprung a leak, and for sixteen weary
months the pumps had to he kept going
almost constantly. It was hoped that
at the opening of summer the ice
would break up and free the ship, hut
the hope was vain. The floe was found
to be drifting quietly hack over its own
path. On July 11,1881, DeLong, con
sidering the crush imminent, ordered
his men from the ship, and none to
soon. .Slowly her sides gave way, a
towering mass of ice rose over her, and
she was
After a weary struggle, with hardshii*
and suffering which will never be told,
they reached open water. For a hun
dred days they continued their course
to the southwest, sometimes in the
open boats; sometimes over the ice,
dragging the boats after them; often
wet, always hungry and hopeful. On
the night of September 12 the three
boats were separated. The one com
manded by Lieut. Danenhower and En
gineer Melville, landed near the mouth
of the Lena river four days later, and
her crew succeeded in reaching Bolo
neuga. DeLong’s boat succeeded in
reaching land, hut his crew reached no
inhabited spot. The dead bodies of
the party were afterward fo ind in a
search gotten up and led by Melville.
Lieut Chip’s boat w;ts never seen after
the gale. Lieut. Danenhower and Dr.
Newcomb proceeded to Petersburg,
where they were honored in all circles,
and were received on May 2 by the
Czar and Czarina. At the present
lime Melville is fitting out an expedi
tion which he promises to conduct to
the pole by the way of Franz Josef
An International Geographical Con
gress met in Hamburg, in October, 1879,
and recommended the establishment of
fifteen permanent stations in the Arc
tic regions for work in exploration.
Ten countries were to take part in the
work. The share allotted to the United
States was to establish two stations,
one at St. liarrows, and the other at
Discovery Harbor, latitude 81 degs., 3D
minutes; longitude 84 degs.. 58 minutes
west of Greenwich. All the stations
save only one Were established success
fully and without accident; but the
history of that one is among the sad
dest chapters in the history of Arctic
discovery. On August 12,1881, a party
in command of Lieut. A. W. Greely,
assisted by Lieuts. Killingshury and
Ixickwood, twenty-five souls in all, dis
embarked from the ship Proteus, at
Discovery Hay. established their sta
tion and named it Fort Conger. The
Proteus sailed on her return trip Au
gust 28. An attempt to reach this sta
tion in 1882, by a party on hoard the
Neptune, failed, and in 1883 the ship
Proteus sank in a like attempt off ('ape
Sabine, about two hundred miles below
Fort Conger, having cached a store of
provisions on the opposite side of the
channel, at Littleton Is’ tnd. Alone
and remote from civilization Greely’s
brave band began their explorations.
Mercury averaged for tne winter of *Bl,
48 degs. below zero, the lowest degree
reached being (50. During the two
years of their stay at Fort Conger, they
made some very positive additions to
geography. They crossed Grinnell Land
to its west coast, which was found to
trend almost south from Cape Alfred
Krnest, and looked out on the polar
sea. From a cliff twenty-two hundred
feet high they saw that the land termi
nated to the northward in a high prom
ontory sixty miles distant, and named
it Cape Bramard, for one of the men
To the southwest they descried land and
called it Arthur latnd. In the interior a

Lake Ila/en. Vegetation was scanty,
but there were traces of the musk ox
and bear; some small game and a few
wild ducks and birds, some familiar in
ornithology unknown, were
found. On Mayl3, *B2, Lieut. la>ck
wood and Sargeant Bramard reached
and named Lockwood Island, lat. 83
degs„ 24 mins.; long. 44 degs., 5 mins.;
and from an elevation made out and
named a point. Robert Liw-oln, lat. 83
dea*., 35 minx.; long. 38, the highest
latitude yet seen by man. The next
highest, 83 degs., 20 mins., is that
reached by Markham in 1818. England
is com|>elled, for the first time in three
centuries to yield the honor of having
gone fartherett in these north explora
tions. Much valuable scientific knowl
edge was also obtained. On August 9,
'B3, having successfully completed their
observations, Greely and his party,
with a steam launch and three small
iioats in tow, left Fort Conger on the
return trip. They were five days frozen
in the ice before they reached Cape
Lawrence, gained Cape Hawkes on the
28th, and took in some provisions left
by the English. Boon after leaving the
place an ice-pack closed around them
and they drifted with it to a point just
south of Victoria Head, where they
were compelled to
bat one, which they dragged over the
ice toward Cape Habine at the rate of
about a mile a day, on a sled made of
the timber of the launch. Finally the
large sled which carried the boat weak
ened, and it bad to be abandoned.
Heavy southwest gales arose, broke the
ice-floe badly, and twice drove the
party back into Kane Basin. But, Anal
ly, on Sept. 22, the party drifted into
Baird’s Inlet, on a piece of ice not
more than fifty yards in diameter, and
forced a land nit on its north shore.
Sept. 29 They expected f o And at Cape
Sabine food in the cache there, and,
possibly, a rescuing party; but they
found neither, and it was indeed a
dreary prospect which was before them.
At Point Sabine a small store of pro
visions had been cached by Beeoby in
1862. and in 1888 a small amount had
been taken ashore here from the Pro
teus, before she sank, and at Point Isa
bella, Mares had left 144 pounds In ’76.
To be nearer these supplies the; matte
their way northward to Camp Olay, a
little wsst off Cape Sabine, and built a
but of stones, roofed it with a broken
whale boat and canvas and banked it
with snow. Moisture from the melt
ing enow compelled them early In the
■eat May to abandon this and occupy
a tent higher on the billskte, where the
relief party found them. An inven
tory of3*te stuck of proviekweOcto-

OM»p, shewed that by reducing the

the channel, where food was stored.
On Novem’.»er 4 Greely sent four men
to Cape Isabt!>«. a distance of twenty
five miles, vhe meat left there by
the English. Dining the trip one of
the men, Ellison, froze both hands and
feet so that he lost them all. Violent
gales kept the channel open all winter,
and having no boats they were unable
to reach the food on the other side.
Game failed them after February l,and
the daily allowance was reduced to six
ounces. The

who remained alive until July 22d, was
minute shrimps, thirteen hundred of
which filled a gallon measure, seaweed,
sassafras, rock lichens, and soup made
of stri|tsof their seal skin clothing,
with the hair burned off. The whole
party reached Camp Clay alive and
well. The first death was from scur
vy. Six of the men died in April, four
in May, nine in June—nineteen in all
—two of them Eskimo. One of the
men was shot for mutiny and theft.
Rice, the photographer, died April 9.
lleand Fredericks volunteered to make
a journey of twenty-five miles where
some meat was supposed to be cached.
They had a sled, ritle, hatchet, and pro
visions for five da vs. After three days
of travel they failed to find the caclie.
On their way back to camp Rice be
came exhausted, sickened and died, and
was buried m an ice grave by his com
panion. Fredericks passed the night
by the grave sheltered by a piece of an
old boat, and next morning, having
paid the last tribute of respect to his
frien I, continued his way to camp.
When the rescuing party, with two
ships, the Thetis and Bear, commanded
by Capt. Schley and Lieut. Emery, in
company with eight whalers, reach**!
them, the seven survivors, four of them
too weak to walk,were huddled together
under their tent, which the gale had
blown down over them, and which
they were unable to right. Long and
Brainard were the lirst to
and helped each other to get clear of
the tent. When laing got clear of it
he rose to his feet with difficulty and
climbed up on a rock, which gave the
tx-st view of the neighborhood, Brain
si nl going back into the tent Long
looked eagerly out upon the channel
for the ships which he could hear but
not see, and at last made out a dark
object approaching the shore. Hasten
ing from the rock he raised their flag,
which the wind had blown down, and
held it aloft about two minutes, when
his strength failed and it was again
blown to the ground. He then tottered
toward the shore, ai.d soon the warm,
strong hand of Dr. Ash grasjied his in
greeting. Connell, who was the weak
est of the party, had for several days
no recollection of what occurred at the
time of the rescue. When his compan
ions aroused him from the stupor
which was coming over him and told
him that succor was at hand, he be
sought them to let him die in peace.
Forty-eight hours delay would have
been fatal to the whole party. The
Thetis and Bear lay about three hun
dred yards off shore. A fearful gale
was blowing from the southwest. The
sufferers had to lie taken in their sleep
ing bags to the steam launch, and by it
to the ships, and it seemed at one time
that they must inevitably be swamped
bv the heavy sea. At last they were
placed aboard the rescuing squadron
and every means taken to secure their
recovery. Ellison was one of the sur
vivors. hut amputation had become im
perative, and he died at Godhaven,
July 6, three days after the operation.
Twelve bodies of the dead were taken
from their ice graves near the camp.
The other live had been carried away
by wind and current. The two Eski
mo were faithful and efficient servants
to Gretiy. One of them was drowned
while seal hunting, the other died of
starvation and was buried in the west
of Greenland, at the request of the in
spector there.
During the winter Greely discovered
that ('ape Sabine is a point of an island
and not of the main land, as was sup
posed, and the passage between is now
called Rice Strait, in honor of the dead
photographer. That this expedition
was a failure can scarcely be true. In
deed, if it be considered from the side
of geographical and scientific discov
ery it was a decided success. Although
the value of the discoveries can not be
considered commensurate with the coat,
let it be remembered that Lieut. Greely
successfully finished his two years’ ob
servations without the loss of a man,
without accident, without sickness, and
even without severe frost bites. It was
only after they reached (.'amp Clay that
they suffered. 'Had the government
ship been able to reach them at Fort
Conger or even to have stored food in
the caches at Point Sabine, all would
nave lieen well. Where the blame
lies is hard to say, but praise is indeed
due to Greely and his men. If any one
of the fifteen expeditions must fail, it
is not at all surprising that this, in a
latitude three degrees higher than any
other, should be t one. For a long
time the English had a monopoly of
names in the Arctic regions. Only
names of their explorers and naval
heroes dotted the map. Within the
last fifteen years America has stamped
it with numerous names of her great
men, and our national vanity is espe
cially gratified by seeing the name
Cape Robert Lincoln atop of them all.
Arctic Explorations.
Read before the Penn College Scien
tific Association.
Curiosity and the desire of gain have
led men to many wonderful undertak
ings; among other things to make more
than two hundred expeditions to the
icy seas. In this pajier only a few of
these can be mentioned, and that but
These expeditions were first only
voyages along the north shores of
Euro|*e and America with a view to
finding some shorter route to the east.
Not till 1603 did the first exploring ex
pedition, of one vessel, the “God-speed,”
commanded by Stephen Bennett, start
on a voyage of northern discovery; and
tnis as well as the sulisequent expedi
tions of Bennett were more devoted to
walrus hunting than to geographical
In the year 1610 Henry Hudson, after
having spent three years in search of a
sailed westward through the strait and
into the bay which now bear his name.
After his supply of provisions was al
most gone, he resolved to liar.aid still
another winter, on account of which
his men mutinied, and he and his son
with a few adherents were placed in a
small boat at the mercy of wind and
waves and left to perish while his ships
sailed away.
Between the years 1610 and 1615 the
Muscovy Company sent out seven ex
peditions, one of which was Baffin’s,
who discovered the northern outlet to
the bay which bears his name. All
these expeditions brought back cargoes
of seal skins, oil, teeth, etc., which aid
ed greatly in defraying the expense of
their outfit.
From this time till the reign of George
111 the spirit of Arctic discovery
seemed dead. In 1773 Phipps led an
expedition of two vessels, fitted out by
the Admiralty for scientific purposes,
and reached latitude 80 deg., 48 min.,
northwest of Spitsbergen.
In 1806 Scoresby reached a point
north of latitude 81 deg.,
30 min. In following expeditions the
same navigator explored Jan Msyens
Land and the east of Greenland, add
ing greatly to the knowledge of the na
ture of the Arctic regions. For the
next twenty years expeditions toward
the pole were not successful and to
reach it was generally conceded to be
an mi pmsibiliw. But Mr. Scoresby
persisted in believing that the pole
could be reached without any great
difficulty or danger
be said, was the alternate ice fields and
open water, making it impossible to
proceed for any great distance continu
ously in either ships or sledges. He
proposed a vehicle so constructed that
it could be changed into boat or sledge
at will; the vdfdele to be drawn by
dogs, since they were more easily car
dsdby boat and more tractable than
reindeer. k
In Marcia under
bora Mb imwy abetm#"
ice fields were frequent and necessita
ted constant changing from boat to
sledge, which could not be done with
out unloading it and this look time.
He nevertheless pushed on, making as
he supposed about eight miles a day.
Three days passed between his last two
observations of latitude. His last ob
servation showed him to be in exactly
the same latitude that he was when the
previous observation was taken. The
floating ice over which he passed had
moved to the south as fast as he ad
vanced northward. He reached lati
tude 82 deg., 40 rain., but under such
adverse circumstances he thought best
to return.
If now we turn to the expeditious
which have gone to the north of Amer
ica, the first suggested are those of
Franklin. Between the years 1819 and
then Lieut. Franklin, conducted two
land expeditious to northern North
America. He traced the coast for more
than a third of the distance from Baf
fin's Bay to Behl ing’s Strait; traveled,
on the first expedition, nearly six thous
and miles overland; suffered incon
ceivable hardships and privations to
which he saw more than half his men
succumb; returned to England in 1827
and received the honor of knighthood
for his valuable services.
Passing over the expeditions of the
next eighteen years, we come in 1845 to
Franklin’s fatal expedition in search of
the northwest passage. He sailed from
England, May 19, with two ships, the
“Erebus" and “Terror,” provisioned for
lit??* yesrs, and was last seen in J uly
of the same year in Baffin’s Bay. After
the time of’his expected return was
passed were entertained for his
«*f« iy and Lady Franklin began urging
upon the different nations that they
send out expeditions in joint search for
her husband. In April, 1849. she began
a correspondence with President Tay
lor and made most earnest appeals for
the United States to send out an expe
dition. In reply Pres. Taylor expressed
the most profound sympathy for her
and assured her that this country would
aid in the search. Nothing definite
was done in the matter until 1850 when
Mr. Henry Grinnell, of New York city,
offered to furnish to the government
two ships on condition that it would
man them from its navy and send them
in the search. The bill was strongly
opposed in Congress, but was finally
passed. The ships, the “Advance.” and
‘•Rescue,” in command of Lieut. De
II iven, sailed May 22,1850,and returned
September 30,1851, having
of Wellington Channel, discovered aud
named Grinnell Land, hut brought no
definite tidings of Franklin’s fate.
On the return of this expedition Mr.
Grinnell again offered the ships to be
sent in the search, but Congress did
not accept the offer. In 1853, however,
Mr. Grinnell, with the aid of some of
his friends, fitted out the expedition
known as the second Grinnell expedi
tion. At the request of Lady Franklin
Congress allowed Dr. Kane to command
the expedition and instructed him also
to have an eye to scientific investiga
tion. The vessel sailed May 30, reached
Uppernavick on the west coast of
Greenland Jaly 24, and for two years
nothing more was heard from it.
In 1855 Congress sent out an dkpedi
tion of two vessels, the “Release” and
“Arctic,” in command of Capt. llart
stene, in search of Kane. These vessels
in less than four months sailed about
eight thousand miles, fully circumnavi
gating Baffin’s Bay, sailed farther north
in Smith’s Sound than any other expe
dition save Kane’s, found the unhappy
party at Disco Island and returned
tbem safely to their homes. The ob
servations of Dr. Kane made important
additions to meteorological science and
he has received great honor from his
In the spring of 1854 two ships lay
ice-locked in the northern seas. One,
the “Investigator,” belonging to an ex
pedition in command of Capt. McClure,
who had come through Behring’s Strait
lay in the Bay of Mercy. The other,
the “Resolute,” of an expedition in
command of Sir Edward Belcher, who
bad come through Hudson Strait west
ward in search of McClure, lay in Wel
lington Inlet, about two hundred miles
from the “Investigator.” Communica
tion was opened between the two ships,
and the crew of the “Investigator”
transferred to the “Resolute.” In May
of that year the “Resolute" was aban
doned and the rest of Belcher’s ships
with the crew of the “Investigator"
returned to England. The Northwest
passage was thus effected by these two
ships. Eighteen months later the
“Resolute” was found by an American
whaler at a point more than a thousand
miles from the place where it was
abandoned and taken into port as a
prize. Congress being apprised of the
fact pureturned the ship of its salvors,
and ordered it refitted and returned to
her Majesty's service as a matter of
national courtesy.
In 1857 an English expedition, in
command of Admiral McClintock,
found in a cairn at Point Victory, King
Williams Land, a tin cylinder contain
ing the first discovered official record
of Franklin's fate. A fac simile of this
record is given in the narrative of
Hall’s secoud Arctic expedition, pre
pared from Hall’s notes by order of
Congress. It appears by the paper that
Franklin ascended Wellington Chan
nel to latitude 77 degrees then returigrd
and [mssed the winter of 184 H-47 at
Beechy Island. The ships were beset
by ice from September, 1846, till April
22,1848, when
then in latitude 70 deg., 5 min., longi
tude U 8 deg., 41 min. It is now known
that Franklin was in a channel which
when free from ice was open to Behrings
Sea, and it is conceded that he discov
ered the Northwest passage. On April
36 the crew set out to reach the main
land of America at the mouth of Great
Fish river. Ten years had elapsed
when these facts were discovered.
What had been the fate of tl e uufc
lunate men ?
To answer this question Cant. (J. F.
Hall, In May, 1860, sailed for the most
favorable northwestern point he could
reach in a whaler, whence he would
make his way wcet vard with such
Eskimo companions as he could secure,
hoping by their aid to lie better able to
prueecute the search. He soon learned
the la: .gue *e of the Eskimo and adapt
ed himself to their inode of life and to
eating their food. The toss of his boat
made this voyage a failure. In 1862 he
returned to tne United States, having
telegraphed before him from St Johns,
N. his determination to go on an
other voyage.
Capt Hall spent two years in prepar
Ing for the second voyage and sailed
sailed July 1, 1864, aboard a whaler in
company with
Joe and wife, faithful followers whom
be had brought with him on bis return
from the first voyage. In 1869 Hall
again returned, having spent five Arc
tic winters in the wretchedness of a
snow hut, living upon the nauseous
foc#of Ibe Eskimo. These two voy
ages added much to our knowledge of
northern geography, and of the life and
customs of the Eskimo, but brought
back no tidings of the one hundred and
five men of Franklin’s party.
In 1870 Congress sent Hall out with
the ship “Polaris” on an expedition to
the pole. He passed through Smith's
Sound, reached his farthest northing,
latitude 82 deg., 17 min, August 31,
1871, and died November 8 of the same
year. He spent his best years and en
ergies in enthusiastic Arctic research,
and found a grave on the icy shores of
Greenland. His resting place is marked
by a stone with fitting inscriptions.
Members of the Nares expedition vis
ited it in 1871, and hrf. tributes of re
spect to his honored memory.
The facts concerning the fate of
Franklin’s men, disclosed by the search
at Lieut Schwatka and hi# man made
in 1879-80. add greatly to our knowledge
of the Franklin party’s mysterious fate.

to bring away articles from the ship,
and not knowing how to get t»elow'

the bottom. This must have lieen the
summer of ’4B, Irom which it wouid

were aiiandoned the ice broke up aud
they were freed. Lieut. Schwatka
learned that the natives had found,
among other things, a tin box contain
ing papers, probably the ship’s records,
which they destroyed soon after. His
party was absent from its base of sup-
Blies for eleven months, and, following
lall’s example, lived with the Eskimo.
During this time they traveled three
thousand, two hundred and fifty-one
miles, for the most part over unexplored
territory, the largest sledge journey
ever made and the only one extending
through a whole Arctic winter. The
party endured the lowest temperature
ever endured by white men, recording
one observation of 71 degrees below
zero, and sixteen days averaging Us lie

On the journey tiver the path traversed
by Franklin's men, Schwatka found a
number of their bodies, gave them
burial and erected monuments to them.
The only one which bore transport he
brought with him to the United States
for burial.
During the last forty years a number
of expeditions have sought to reach
the pole.
In 1876 Markham explored the north
ern shore of Grinnell Land, gave names
to the irregularities of the coast, and
reached latitude 83 deg., 20 min., 26 sec.,
the highest then attained.
In 1878-79 Nordenskjold successfully
passed through the Northeast passage.
Its freedom from islands and the effect
of the waters of the three great rivers
which flow into it render it much safer
for vessels than the Northwest passage,
and every year since trading vessels
have passed through it.

New Orleans, La.— A reporter of
the Times-Dsmoerat, who recently com-
Sleted a tour of this and neighboring
tates, visiting every city, town and
hamlet, states that he interviewed all
the wholesale and retail druggists and
storekeepers, as well as transportation
companies, with a view of learning the
volume of trade in certain articles.
The statistics thus gathered show that
during the past two years over one
million two hundred thousand bottles

ly exceeds the total combined sales of
all other similar remedies during that
period. He adds that dealers, as well

A Story of Tktd. Stevens.
Washinuton Letter in .Yrv York Tribune.
The appointment of Pierce M. B.
Young, the other day, to be Consul-
General at St. Petersburg, reminds me
of a story 1 heard Mr. Blaine tell not
long ago—a story in which Young
played a prominent part, and which il
lustrates the kindness of heart and
generosity of feeling, for which old
“Thad.” Stevens, notwithstanding the
toughness of his manner and abrupt
ness, was known.
Mr. Blaine and Mr. Stevens were
seated one day in the committee room,
of which the latter was chairman,when
the door opened and in walked a young
man with what seemed to lie a troop of
friends at his heels. Stevens looked up
inquiringly as the young man walked
up to him.
“What can I do for you?” be asked.
“There is a bill lit your committee in
which 1 am interested, and which I
wish to have reported to the House,”
answered the young man, and he added.
“M v name is Pierce M. B. Young."
“Well, what is it all about?” Stevens
“It’s a bill to remove my political dis
“Ahem!” broke in Stevens gruffly,
“Fought against the Union, I suppose?”
“Yes, sir.”
“Ahem!”—still more gruffly—“iMirn

“Yes, sir, in South Carolina.”
“Ahem’ Educated at West Point, 1

“Yes, Sir.”
“Graduated there?"
“No, sir. 1 left West Point when the
war broke out.”
“Then you got your education at the
government's expense, and afterward
turned around and fought against it,
eh!" ejaculated Stevens, most savagely.
“Yes, sir.”
“Well, where did vou serve?”
“In the Army of Virginia.”
“Under Early?”
“Yes, Sir.”
“Were you at Cham hers burg?"
“Yes, Sir."
“I suppose you were one of the
blanked fellows who came up there and
burned my iron foundry, eh?"
Stevens, Mr. Blaine said, took a look
at Young. Then bringing his cane,
which he always carried, down on the
floor with a good deal of force, he ex
claimed: “Well, sir, I admire your
blanked cheek!” And after a moment’s
pause, he said, laughingly: “I’ll report
your bill to-morrow.”
Erysipelas is a dangerous disease.
Not unfrequently does it take such a
form as to carry off its victim after a
period of intense suffering. Charles
It. Lucas, of Zanesville, Ohio, writes:

numerous physicians but received no

A Philadelphia showman the other

concerning the love affairs of dime
museum curiosities.
“A legless freak,” he said, *“once eloped

legs and very short arms. One day, a
daughter* of John O’Brien, the show
man, who made his headquarters at
Frankford, met Stewart, and their ac
quaintance soon ripened into love. The
first thing the Professor beard of was
that Stewart and the young lady had
eloped, and had been made one. They
are now living together happily, and
their union has been blessed with sev

she took the man she loved. I venture
to say there are hut few’ freaks, and
they are of the most hideous kind, who
‘do not have plenty of admirers. The
wedding at our museum of the living
skeleton Garrison to Bertha Clear, a
young lady from West Philadelphia, is
still fresh m the luinds of the Phila
delphians on account of the legal com
plications that aroseafter the marriage.
That, you know, was a case of love at

take her away from her husband, be

The Affectionate Gooee.
New York Commercial Advertiser.
An old gentleman living iu the suburbs
had a most singular admirer. One
day he called upon a neighbor to look
at some fowls lately received. To the
pleasurable surprise of the visitor a
large white goose at once left the feed
ing-place and came up to him, mani
festing evident signs of satisfaction.
The unromantic bird was duly stroked,
and the worthy gentleman started ou
his homeward way. Soon afterwards
he heard the dulcet tones of the descen
dant of the historic cacklers and
saviors of Rome, and there was Miss
Gousey-Poosey following him like a
dog. Touched by the creature’s affect
ion, he stroked her again, and o*. reach
ing home gave her some biscuit and
and sent her back to her owner. The
next morning the faithful bird was
found watching at the door by which
her friend had entered the house. As
soon as she saw him she was demon
strative iu her delight. At first the
old gentleman did not attach much im
portance to this behavior, supposing it
was a freak of the fowl. His astonish
ment, however, was great when be set
out for the neighboring village to find
Miss Goose close behind him. Ever
and anon she would rub her head
against him, as if lagging a caress,
which, of course, the kindly soul could
not refuse. He supposed she would
go back to her flock as soon as the vil
lage was reached, but this was no part
of her intentions. She followed him
closely, unterri’ie'’ by dogs or small
boys, quietly w utside the stores
that lie eiitt Ihe reappeared
and then its gi as she knew
how pirouette*’ dm for very joy.
She followed i >me. and when she
saw the door of the house closed re
turned to her owner’s place. There
after the affectionate goose took up
her station every morning l»efore the
door of her idol, and as soon as he ap
l>e. red she followed him wherever he
went. If he remained indoors she
waited bis coining till the evening
shadows fell, then she went back to
her pen. Tins strange devotion eou-
tinned l*»r sc vend yr.ua. It was not
entirely welcome, In-cause it caused
invidious <etnurks. Whenever the
v*ttiui of this auseric affection stopped
to s|*»ak to an acquaintance, the jeal
ous bird would fly at the person with
wings outstretched and sipilant ex
pressions of wrath. The annoyance
of the creature’sd< ruonstrations at last
became unendurable, and the kind old
gentleman breathed a sigh of mingled
pain and relief when the jH>or bird An

Taken in the iuuip, men will face any
means oi dt-struction whatsoever, if
also they piv-«t*ss it themselves. Give
two men pistols and they will fight
across a hankerchief. They are not
afraid of death, hut only of death
without a chance of victory. King
Theodore of Abyssinia asked his court
iers when the r«M*ket-sticks fell at his
feet, if lie could he reasonably expected
to face things like those, and, ultimate
ly, in jnire despair of defeating science
with unscientific weapons, killed him
self; but if lie also had [Hwsessed
rockets he would have fought on. No
men, not even Prussian soldiers or
English sailors; will face shells with
out shells to throw back; but when
tbev have shells they face the enemy's
shells as bravely as they did the old
round shot. The methods of war are
changed by science, but war is not
extinguished. Suppose it true that
able chemists and mechanicians could
invent a method of throwingan asphyx
iating vapor on a sleeping airny.
what would be the result? First, the
adoption of some protective covering,
such as ironclad hilts for sleeping in;
next, the adoption of a method of en
camping which spread the army over
surface t<*» great or too uneven to lie
reached; and next, the useof similar
mechanicians ami chemists as the as
sailing force. Huxley would march
with his fishermen to choke Tyndall
with his Alpine climbers. War would
then consist mainly of efforts to obtain
advantageous positions, from which
showers of death would **e thrown, but
war would not cease. Forlorn hopes
would ha organized among soldiers,
enormous rewards would be paid to
the new wariors, the nations would
fight each other as briskly as ever.
How LsdiM Should Rid*.

The horsewoman should sit so that
the weight of her laxly falls exactly in
the center of the saddle, withe’it
heavily bearing on the stirup, able to
grasp the upright pommel with the
right knee, and press against the
“hunting horn” with her left knee, yet
not exerting any muscular action for
that purpose. For this end the stirrup
leather must be neither too long nor
too short. The ideal of a fine horse
woman is to lie erect without being
rigid, square to the front and, until!
quite at home in the saddle, looking
religeousiy between her horse’s ears.
The shoulders must, therefore, be
square, but thrown back a little so as
to expand the chest and make a hollow
wai*tL“ such as is olNerved in waltz
ing,” but always flexible. On the Hex
ibility of the person above the waist
and on the firmness below all the grace

and women poke their tieads forward
a stupid trick in a man. uupardonaple
in a woman. A lady should band like
a willow in a storm, always returning
to an easy yet nearly upright position.
This seat should l*e acquired while the
lady’s horse is lead, first by hand, then
with a leading stick and finally with a
lunging rein, which will give room fur
cantering in circles. But where the
pnpil is encumbered with reins, a whip
and directions for guiding a horse, she
may be excused for forgetting all n
bout her seat or her position. The
arms down to the elbows should hang
loosely near, but not fixed to the si lea.
and the hands, in the absence of rents,
may rest in front of the waist.
These are the voJaucoea of the hu

are annoy tug, painful, and sometimes
dangerous. They can be driven out by
