Wiggins ou Storms...te Msakl ioni
Predletions that Will be Watche
I have now to announce that
have discovered the periodic tim
of the great Sare y quale of Octc
ber 7, 1869-the' storm which a]
most annihilated the forests o
New England and the maritim
provinces, ruining their timber in
torests. This period I find to b
5,46[ days, so that it will be her
on September 19, 1887, and wil
he the greatest storm that will tak
place before the year 1900. It
greatest force will be on the aftei
noon of September 20, when th
forests of the eastern coast will i
all probability go down before il
It will be accompanied by eartb
quaken, and these will recur wit
great violence the middle of Oct. i

Let no fisherman's hark then ea,

(what Horace calls him) the pow
erful god of the sea. Between thv
period and the present the heaviec
which will occur are as follows

As I never Iid a cent for advei
tising storms, and for my stori
predictions never received one-t
generosity of the press being a r<
ward for mfy efforts in the publi
interess-I trust you wilt be goo
eiough to keel) these storms befor
seamen and thus save millions :
dollars and many lives. I sha
not myself refer to them. I aj
constantly in receipt of letters froi
persons in the United States offei
ing me motey, and in some case
large rewards, tor rea.ding their ft
ture from the planets and thei
destiny from the stars. To thes
deluded people I have neither tim
nor inclination to reply, other tha
to say that they are not yet out c
the susperstition and ignorance c
dark ages. E. S. WIGoINS.

CURE FOR LOCKJAW.-IDr. .1. (1
Hatch, an old physician of over 1
years practice recommends the fo
lowing treatment for lockjaw, has
ing successfully triedl it on hin
self and others. If any person i
threatened or taken with lock-jar
from injuries on the hands, feel
arms or legs, do not wait for th
dloctor, but put the injured par
into the following prepartion: Pu
hot wood ashes into water wart
as can borne on the injured par
then wet thick folded clothes i
the water and apply them to th
lpart as soon as possible, and at th
same time bathe the back-bon
from the neck down, with somn
p~owerfulI laxative sti muulant, sa
cayenne pepper and water or mus
tard and water (good vinegar i
better than water). It should b
as hot as the patient can bear i'
D~o not hesitate; go to work an
do it, and don't stop until the jaw
open. No person need die of loch~
jaw if these directions are folloii
' URGING A GERiAL SLAUGHT]
r o Doos.-Farmers seem to hal

the situation when farmers begi
