A MOST GRAPHIC STORY.
It is Taken Direct From Real Life. A Charming New England Lady Tells Her Experience Both Abroad and in America. The- unwritten romances of life are more wonderful and far more interesting than the most vivid works of fiction.. The one we are about to relate occurred in real life, and is both interesting and in? structive. Mrs.Jennie Kay,formerly lived in Man? chester, N. H. Her home was pleasant, hor surroundings comfortable. In the year lbSO she visited England, ami while in that country began to experience strange sensntiens. At first she attrib? uted them to the change of climate, hut they continued and increased, until finally, like many another woman, she became utterly discouraged. It was while in this condition that Mrs. Rny returned to America and her home. Thousands of women who read this story cau appreciate the condition in which Mrs. Ray then was and sympa? thize with her suffering. Two proniiuent physicians were called ami endeavored to do all in their power for her relief. In spite, however, of.ihcir skill, Mrs. Ray grew weakei and more depressed, while the agony she endured seemed to in? crease. It tvas at this time that a noted physician who was called declared Mis. Ray was sufTerint; from cancer, ?aid there was no help and told her friends she could not live more than'a ^week at the farthest. And here conies the interesting part of the story, which we will emh avor to tell in Mrs. Ray's own words. She said: '-Unknown to a'l these physicians, T had been using a prepnrationlol which I had beard much. 1 didn't tell the phy? sicians because I feared they would ridi? cule me, and perhaps order Its discontin? uance. During nil the while that the physicians were attending me the prepa? ration was steadily and faithfully doing its own work in its own way, and I had faith in its power. At last the doctor said there was no use of his comintr. for he could do mo no good. I'had suffered so much that I was quite willing "to die, but it seems that f was nearer relief than I knew. One week from the day the doc? tor last called a falje growth, as lar?e as a coffee cup, and which looked as though it had been very large, left me. I sent for a doctor, and he declared it was a fib? roid tumor, but snid he had never known one to come away of itself before. 1 im? mediately began to gain health and strength, andl?nhesitntigly declare that my rescue from death was due solely to. the marvelous effects of Warner's .Safe Cure, which was the remedy I took un known to the physicians, and "which cer? tainly rescued me from the grave. It is my firm belief that many ladies who are said to die of cancer of the womb aro cases like mine, and if they could be in? duced to use Warner's Safe Cure, they, like me, migit be saved." The above grnphis account is perfectly true in every respect. It is said that "truth is stranger than fiction," arl when the thousands of suffering, helpless women who are upon the road which physicians say h ads onty to deat h, con? sider the story as above given, there is reason for hope nod joy, even although they may be now in the depths of de? spondency and misery. To such ladies the above truthful account is tvillingiy given. WOOD: WOOD!! WOOD!!! For FIXE or OAK wood?by the CORD or by the LOAD?prepared for COOK I NO STOVES or in BLOCKS FOR HEAT?

Washington, Doc. 7.?Secretary Alger yesterday made public the reprimand ad? ministered to Captain hovering by sen? tence of onurt-maitial as follows: "By order of the President the proceed? ings, findings und sentence in the case of Captain Leonard A. Loveriog, Fourth Infantry, are approved. It is, however; disappointing that an offense so grave and an exanude so far reaching as this should have been visited with so light a penalty. There is no question but that Private Hammond deserved punishment for his conduct, but be should have re? ceived it in a lawful way. The military laws governing the army are explicit. They prescribe the duties of ollicers ami enlisted men with ttie penalties of their violation. Under them, bcth havo rights and obligations. When, therefore, an oiiicer, with the intelligence and experi euc? with which Captain Lovering is credited, not only violates these laws.but exhibits such a lack of burr unity as is shown in this ca.-.e, he should receive a inoro severe seuteute than a mere repri? mand. Committing such acts degrades the ollicer more than the soldiers lie pun? ishes and shows unfltuess for the care and command of men. Under excite? ment, men frequently tlo things which in cooler moments they recall with sorrow and regret: but this case is aggravated by the fact that after weeks of delibera? tion th's'ofiicer evinces no regret for his wrongful acts." PROP. SHEPPE EXPLAINS. To the Editor of The Times: The mat? ter complained of by Mr. Phil. Locket in your*issue of the^-lth instant can be easily remedied. Rule L page 30, of the Rules and Regulations of the board says: "Pu I ils shall not appear on or about the school premises earlier than fifteen minutes before the h:ur for opening." Now, the hour for opening is o'clock. No pnnil therefore has any right "on or about the school ptemiseB" earlier then fifteen minutes before 11 o'clock. Fur? thermore^ pupil lives so lar away Trom the school building as not to be able to reach school In fifteen minutes, provided he does not loiter by the way. Hence, if parents will see to it that their chil? dren do uot statt to school ei rlier than fifteen minutes of !> o'clock, it will never be necessary for the little ones to stand out "on the cold damp rjround" much over five minutes, "waiting for the doors to open." We do not think this brief 62 - posure would work any hardship to the children, or jeopardise their health to any appreciable extent. Again, rule 1, page 83, ot the rules and regulations above . referred to, says: "Teachers shall be in their respective school rooms at least fifteen minutes be? t?re the time for opening school." The earliest possible moment, therefore, at which the doors can be opened Is fifteen minutes of 0 o'clock, or when the teach? ers are all in their respective rooms. The truth is, however, pupils bare never been required to remain out InJJvery cold or inclement weather. On the con? trary, on disagreeably cold or rainy mornings the doors are opened at fifteen minutes before D o'clock and t he pupils tiro allowed to pass to their respective apartments. This was done on Friday, the 3d instant, the time, we suppose, w hich called forth Mr. Locket's criticism. We deem this explanation necessary, rs the article in question was calculated to leave a false impression concerning the management of the school. Respectfully, J.
