against what lie denounced as atnek tin

therefore the ballot should tw so printed as

tlie careless xoter's attention would not be
drawn to what he was xotmg alNiut, and
(4) that thus the careless v oter would beile-
o-iv-ed into xnmng what he di.Cnot intend to

(1) We think that Judge Rannej dix?s
not mean to saj that the word "njijirviiiC
is used iu the constitution exactlj in the
connection ai.d tlie uenso. in
which he '
has here cited it witli
such empua-
pliasls. Certalnlj-, the careless xoters, con-
coming whoni onlj' we are tlkcussing, can
not properly be said either to approve or
to disapprove, and jet their affirmative bal-
Joteareasrnuch an approval and their neg-
atlve ballots areas much a diepproval, in
the Intendment of the constitution, as
thuseof the most enlightened and purposing
nters ut an election. It Is nl a question,
a- to printing the ballots, whether these In
different voters shall not he led to "approve"
in the ruiistitutlmml sense, rather than to
disapprove in the same ense; anil, as we
have Mill, the presumption is in favor of
the former.
(11. As to making an "incongruous mass
of itelivvork" of the constitution, v e do not
think tli it Judge liaiine) ought to feel
aiixutv aliout that, inasmuch as eae.li
aim ndincut has first to go through a general
canvass of its merits bv the public press and
the ipular orators before there can be got
a general asseiiililv Infaorof iLs submis
sion, and then to pass the scathing dtbate
of the constitutional lawjers of esich house
and come out of each with a three-hfths

Strange Superstitions Rife in an
Old English Settlement.
Years ago a number of emigrants
from Devonshire, Lincister, Cornwall,
Yorkshire and other counties of En
gland settled in Northern Pennsv Ivania,
near the New York State line. They
hid made some of the finest farms in
the State and are the best ot citizen,,
but manj of them clni"; with mpilir
tenacitv to a strange belief in tlie elh
cacy of certain ch.irnis that hive been
Used for centuries among the clas, to
which they belonged in England. Tin
charmed ring cure for epilepsy is one
of these. Onlv a few davs ago a jew
eler at Hoiicdale was called upon by a
resident of the settlement, who had
with him his daughter, a sitkly girl of
fifteen. The girl produced nine En
glish two-penny pit ce, from w Inch the
jew clcr w as requested to make a ring
to tit the girl's middle linger. It w as
necessary, the fanner slid, that a por
tion of each coin should be usi d and
the rest of the pieces ived mil re
turned to his daughter The coins
were given her by tune boy s, .is ne ir
her ow r. age js could be found, w hich
would gixe to the ring a charm which,
when she put it on, would cure lit r of
epilepsy, from winch she was siiOenii";.
This he maintained was a cure that
was always tried in Devonshire mil
never failed. If the victim of epilepsy
was n male, the nine coins must be
presented by nine females.
Some of these fanners keep the skins
of adders in or on their house, end
buildings, believing the m to lie a eel
tain charm against lire. To cure ague
the patient is taken to a spot vv hero
two road, cross, and an oik tret is
found as near the spot :is poihlc. A
lock of his hair is lifted tip and driven
into tlie tree with an ash peg. The
patient must then tear himself loose,
leaving the hair sticking in the tree,
and walk away without looking be
hind him. Sufferers with erysipelas,
by wearing in a silken big around
their neck a toad from which the right
hind leg and the left fore leg ha been
cut until tin mutilated reptile dies will
get w ell of the disease. 'I he tongue
cut from a living fox, these charm be
lievers say, carried about the person
will ward off disease of all kinds but
as tlie person carrying one of these fox
tongues will surely die if he should
happen to meet a fox at any cross
road,, the charm is seldom invoked.
One old resident of the settlement car
ries in his pocket constantly an im
mense tooth from a huniin jaw. The
tooth, he says, was taken from the
mouth of a man who was hanged in
Hertfordshire moie than a hundred
years ago after the man was dead, and
was came'il by the present owner's
father, grandfather and greatgrand
father. It is carried as a preventive for
toothache, the tootli fiom a dead per
son's mouth being a certain charm
against that malady. The owner of
the tooth says he never had the tooth
ache in his life. A double hazelnut ear
ned in tlie pocket or about the person
is also a preventive of the disease.
The charms for the dispersion of
warts believed in by many of these hon
est farmers are inimeious and most
singular. For instance, if a person
with warts on his or her hands will
w nte tlow n tlie number of them on the
band of a tramp's hit without the
tramp knowing it he will cniiy the
warts away with him tint is, they
will gradually di-apiie.tr from the per
son's hands and appear on thoe of tlie
tramp. By cutting a notch on a green
elder-stick for every w ut a person may
have, nibbing the -tick on every wart,
and then burying it in th.e barn-yard
until it tot-, the wnrt may be cured
Waits may uNo bo removed by taking
a black snail, nibbing it on all the
wart at night, and impaling the snail
on a thorn bush, icpiatmg the process
nine consecutive nights, by which time
the warts and the snail will both If
sr.TVRa tip Anotner way to get nil
of warts is for the person to see a funer
al pass unexpectedly, wherever he
may be, and, as it passes, nib his w arts
quickly and repeat the words: "Warts
and corpse pass aw av and never more
return. " Green peas may also be used
to advantage in taking off wart,. Let
the afflicted person take as many peas I
as Ui has warts and touch eaeli wart
with a diflerent pea. He must then
wrap eacli p'-a in a se pirate piece of .
paper and bury them secretly in the (
shade of an ah tree or under a hazel
bush If peas are not in season and l
the person with wart does not care to i
try the eflieacy of any of the above
named charms, Ic t him select as many '
peobles as he has w arts Sew ing them
up in a small big, he must take them '
tt where four roads cross and throw
the bag over his left shouldT. This I
charm will never be resorted to, how
ever, by persons wno nave no mali
ciousness in their hearts, for if, by
chance, any other person find the bag
and open it the warts will appear on
his hand.
A wen is usually a troublesome and
unsightly thing to be afflicted w itb. but
the x ictims of wens need not suffer
long if they beliexe in the English
charm. Take a common snake. Hold
it by the bead and tail, and draw it
backward and forward nine times over
the wen. Then cork the snake in a
bottle and burr it If that fails the do-
tient must not repine, but simply wait
until tliti next May Day. Rise early in
1 the morning of that day before the sun
has disturbed the dew Go to a grave
yard, and, by passing the baud three
times from head to foot over the grave,
i collect the dew that lies on the grave
of the last young person who was bur
ied in the yard. If the victim of the
I wen is a woman the grave must be
that of a man, and vice versa. Apply
, the dew immediately to the wen, and a
' cure is guaranteed In England, ac
i cording to the oldest resident of the
settlement, tlie "dead stroke" waseon
I sidered a nexcr filling cure for wens
This was the stroking of the atlicted
part with the head of a dead animal.
The charm for curing nosebleed is a
curious one. If a person is subject to
' nosebleed he may effect a cure by going
i to a person of the opposite sex and re
i questing him or her to purchase a piece
of lace, such as may bo specified, for
the person miking the request When
1 the lace is brought the person must
take it and neither pay for it nor return '
thinks for it. He must make a neck
tie out of the lace and wear it for nine
I day s, and he w ill never hive the nose
1 bleed again. If the person is too mo 1
est or gall mt to get the lace in that
way let him catch a toad, kill it and
wear it around his neck m a bag until
I it sickens him His nose will never
I bleed again If a person his crimps
