he brought a man into the club who

Another remarkable faith cure is
announced, this time a young lady
who had lost her eyesight, and by
prayer had it restored. There cer
tasnly is no reason why prayer should
not accomplish the same miracles now
as it did in the'time of Christ, but does
it do so is the question. Nearly ev
ery day some remarkable case "of faith
cure is announced and vet but few
persons have come into actual contact
1 with such cure3, and there is no doubt
that at least a portion of the cures are
due to natural causes, rather than
.any exalted or divine influence.
Boulanger has retired from the
political notority he has hitherto en
j oyed and is now of no more impor
tance than a fossil. Boulanger pre
sumed on the peculiar disposition of
the French people which held in
tender reverence memories of their
illustrious Napolean and with cun
ning plans looked forward to forming
a new empire. That his influence
with fhe people merely existe'l in his
own brain, notwithstanding the sen
sational demonstrations in his honor,
there is Utile doubt since the late
election. The French Republic was
never sronger than it is to-day and
Boulanger like a rocket has dis
appeared. The late A. A. Talmage, of St.
Louis, was one of the best railroad
men in this country and as he made
his own success by careful attention
to his employers' interests, bard work
and ambitious determination, he
probably deserved his success. It is
possible, however, that had he be
stowed mare time in inculcating les
sons of probity into the minds and
hearts of his young sons and less on
his ambition, the name of Talmage
would not have gone on a peniten

In another column will be found a
telegram from San Francisco referring
to a Utile child wh.ch had been sent
overland to that place from some point
in New York "to find her papa."
As in her case, it is growing tofbe a
common thing for people to send little
delicate children on long journeys in
the care of the trainmen, and yet
there is something so singular
heartless m the sending that Columbia. Col. Swilzler is threat

sent to San Francisco, was right when
he asserted that the party or narties
who sent the child "should be jailed."
There of course, my be exceptional
cases where it seems nece33ary to
send a child on a long journey alone,
but such necessity must be rare in
deed since in this day of continual

journeying it is not diihcult to hnd
some one who would assume charce
of a little child, when the proper rela
tives or guardians were" unable to do
so, for the sake of having it cared for.
It is to the credit of railway em
ployes that their kindliness of heart
does not fail them when helplessness
of either childhood or age appeals to
them, but as was said before, there
are few cases where it is really neces
sary to make such an appeal.

Manv people have curious ideas re
garding the hour of death. Some
hold that the largest proportion of
deaths from disease occur when the
tide ebbs, while others think that the
same is true in the early hours of
morning. There are yet other more
or less widespread impressions on this
subject, but these mentioned appear
to be the mo3t popular one3. It has
recently been stated that from time
to time careful observations have been
made in hospitals which have resulted
in showing that the act of death take3
place with fairly equal irequency
during the whole twenty- four hours
of the day. Very recently an investi
gation has been made in Paris, which
showed that there wa3 a certain falling
off of the number of deaths between 7
and 11 o'clock in the evening, but
that, with tbi3 exception the pro
portion of deaths is about even. Bos
