V HALF SOARED TO DEATH. "I was half scared to death" A common expression. Everybody has used it many times. Ordinarily it means nothing and it is almost an exaggeration. But there is a principle bet ind it, and a lung 1st of facts which may well interest and alarm us. People have been so soared that their ba"r bai turned from ita natural colour to white in a few hours. People have been scared into insanity, and in numerous iaetauoes they have been arually and literally scared to death. History teems with proofs of what I say and sush a result is as clearly the effect of a natural law as is death by a bullet through the brain or the heart. Listen if you please, to the story of a child, who was half siared to death. Her mother tells it, and the incident as she relates it has since been fully verified. "Up to September, 1891," she says, "my danghter Mary, now sixteen years old, was a bright, healthy girl. At that time she acoidently met on tha road a tramp, whose appearance and language frightanei her so badly that sherati home almost out of her senses. After this she drooped and her health failed. She became weakly and delicate. Any effort soon exhausted her, and she would not play like other girK She complained of a bad hste in her mouth, and a slimy matter adhered to her teith. Her appetite forsook her, and she t)ok only beef t-ia and milk. Even after such mild forms of nouriebment as the ie the gid would go nearly dis- tracted with pain in th3 side, the back, and around the ohest. For this I applied pouiticeii aud hot bott'es. Oold, clammy and unnatural swoats eame over her, and she became pale like a dead person. Froihy water ran from hsr month, and we were natble to stop it. As she grew weaker large at Blesses formed on her neck A little latar she was to > weak to st-and and I put her to bed. For six months she remained in bed without strmgth to maze. I was obliged to lift her in my arms and put her back, when oocasioa required. For the most part she Jay quite listlesa as if under a load of sleap and weariness; but her re-t was brokea by pain. Ste wasted rapidly as if in a deoline, and in two months lost one stone in weight. She was n)w so light that I oould easily lift her. When relatives and friends called to see her she took no notice, and did not wish to hear them talk. Many time- I thoaght she was dead, a she hid no perjeptible pulse, and I could not hear her heart beat. Yet hot bottlea and wine would not revive her. "In this condition Mary remained month after month, growing weaker, if that was possible. No one thought she could live muoh longer, and I tried to reugn myself to parting with my beloved daughter. It made me ill to see her sufferings, and 1 felt ten years older during those six anxious months. "I had one doctor after another to see her (seven doctors in all treated her), but she became no better. One after another the medical men gave her up as in- curable, saying they could do no more for her. A physician from Dublin (a speoia'ist) when on a visit to Stranorlar was brought to see my girl. He agreed with the other doct')r-that her case was hopeless. When we had abandoned all hope I chanced to read in a small book, which had bean left at the house, about cases like Mary'd haviag been cured by Mother Seigel's Syrap. I at once got a bottle from Mr John Raitt, the druggist, and began giving her this medicine. In a short time I noticed a slight improvement, and thereafter she got btrouger-slowly but surely. When she had takeu ten bottles she was well and strong. "SincQ that happy time she has kept in good health. Everybody in the neighbourhood wondered at the cure, considered it almost a miracle and asked what had dona it. I told them all (including our Rector, the Re v. J. A. Cawford, who visited h3r regularly) that Mary's recovery was wholly due to her use of Mother Seigel's Syrup, and th%t, save for this remedy, she would, in my opinion, be now in her grave. You are at liberty to publish this state- ment and refer any enquiries to me.(Sigued) (Mrs.) Matilda MoConnell, Stranorlar, near Loadonderry, Co. Donegal, Ireland, August 31st, 1897. The facts in this oase are public property among the people of the vicinity, who corroborate the aooount of them as given by Mrs. MoConnell. Among others we quote one letter:—"I have known Mrs. MoConnell for many years, and remember her daughter's illness. She informed me that Mother Seigel's Syrup had oured the girl after seven dootera had failed. Mrs. MoCoDnell is a respectable lady, and her word can be implicitly relied on. The oase is wel known in the dictriot. You can publish this letter if you wish. (Signei) Jehn Raitt, Merchant, Stranorlar, Ireland. August 31st, 1897. The fright reoeivel by little Mary MoConnell— then ten years old-producel a profound nervous shook, which resulted in an arrest of the digestive functions, with Bucoeeding symptoms as desoribed. It was indeed a marvel that she reoovered. A medicine capable of curing such a case is beyond praiseyr Because of the trouble they paised through may tfie fmtare be good to mother and daughter.
V/ PEOPLE YOU KNOW. No. I.-THE BAKER. MrT. STBEATBB, 56, Southam Staeet, KensalRoid, London, write: "I have receivel S3 much benefit from Dr. Tibbies' Vi-Cocoa I feel that I mast thank you for it. I am a baker by trade, which, as you know, is very hard work, but I am pleasad to say that when I am done of a night I go home and have a cup of yonr Oocoa, and feel quite fresh again, and then I go and enjoy my-elf. But bafore I took to Dr. Tibbies' Vi-Coooa, I usid t) mess about indoors as tired as could be." Vi-Oocoa has become a hous-htjld word amongst us. Prepared from subttancas of admitted dietetio V ilue, Dr. Tibbies' Vi-Coooa is at once digestive and refreshing, nutritious and invigorating. This is the secret of its phenomenal aucoess. It seems, so far as we can gather, to agree with everybody, and everybody is agreed in giving it a good name. Ap- parently it is the acoeptid beverage of a people who re?°8fQisod and appreciated its rematkable health-giving properties. And oertainly in this age of *OBh and ^°**y, wear and tear, when the energies of mind and body ara so severely tixed, it ia an ideal food.

On Whit-Tuesday, the annual festival was celeb- rated ot the Flint Castle Lodge of the Independent Order of Oddfellows, M.U., and included the 59th anniversary of the Loige, and the 24tb series of annual sports. The weather opened very unpro- pitiously and considerably marred the parade which usually takes place through the prinoipal parts of the Borough, the route on the present occasion being circumioribed. The band of the 2nd Batt. Royal Welsh Fusillers, headed the procession, and after a short parade of t' E t)wn proceeded to the Parish Church, where divine service was held, the Rev O. Davies, officiating. Aftsr Church, the members and their guests returned to the Oddfellows Hall, where a sumptuous dinner was provided by Brother H. Hughes, of the Liverpool Arms. The menu submitted, was as folloW8 MENU. FISK. Boiled Salmon and Parsley Sauce. JOINTS. Roast Lamb and Mint Sauce. Boast Sirloin of Beef and Round Beef. Roast Veal and Roast Mutton. VEGETABLES. New Potatoes. Cauliflowers. Cabbage. Peas. SWRICTB. Plum Pudding. Rice Pudding. Custards. Pastry. Jellies, &c. Cheese and Salad. Among the guests were Alderman J. L. Muspratt, presiding, Major 0. E. Dyson, vice-chairman, Aldermau Joseph Hall, Mayor of Flint Me T. T. Sill, manager United Alkali Works; Mr J. S. Rigby. manager Flint Vegetable Parchment Works Rev O. Davies, Alderman T. W. Hughes, Dr. Kirkpatrick, Messrs T. RyaD, W. Hughes, W. T. Pierce, S. Wilkinsoa, G. Fryer, J. Brady, P. Matthews, W. A. Taylor, A. Schwarz, Inspector Jones, lco., &o. After dinner, the Chairman said it was a fitting thing before proceeding with the business of the toast list that he should at the request of the members propose that the Lodge desire to offer their sinoere sympathy and condolence with Mrs Gladstone and family in their bereavement, and that the same be forwarded to them by the Secretary of the Lodge." It was hardly the place to begin an eulogy of the great citizen, but he might say that no one who followed the mournful proees-ion through the park at Hawarden or that procession on Saturday last when Mr Gladstone was laid to rest in the Abbey will ever forget the world-wide sympathy shown not only to the family but to our great country in the loss of its first and greatest citizen of the centary. The resolution was passed in silence. The toast of the Queen and Royal family was submitted with much loyalty by the Chairman, and the National Antheaa was sung. "The Bishop and Clergy, and Ministers of all denomination was submitted by the Chairman, and responded to by the Rev. O. Davies, who remarked that the oharge was often made that religion was a failure. Since reference had been made to Mr Gladstone, he would say so long as religion can have such power over men endowed with suoh gigantic intellectual abilitiei and having suoh powers reposed in them-then he could aay that Christianity had not been a failure (hear, hear). So long as Fiiendly Societies exist, such as the Manchester Unity, Christianity could not be a failure. Mr J. S. Rigby submitted the toast of the Army, Navy, and Auxiliary Forces," coupling with it the name of the Vioe-Chairman. Major 0 E. Dyson, V.D., who responded in his usual able manner, highly complimented the general efficiency of the Volunteer forces in which he had always taken a lively and aotlve interest. The Mayor of Flint (Aid. J. Hall), submitted the toast of the "Town and Trade of Flint," and said -of recent years the structural appearance of Flint had been greatly improved, and more recently the streets of the town had been ornamented. The industries of the town had of late been far from brisk, but there was no reason to be deipoadent. They had sufferel a reverse, but they were re- covering and more than that, other industries were started and promised favourable results. He wag pleased to see present Mr Rigby, the pioneer of a new industry,- and he hoped it would meet with deserved suooess. He was absolutely sure that Flint would see better trade (hear, hear). Mr T. T. Sill, manager of the United Alkali Works, in responding to the toast, said It gave him great please to do so. With reference to the trade of Flint they all knew that it had not been in such a flourishing state for the la,t few years previously. For all that there was no reason to take a gloomy view, and no reason why the old Flint Works should not go on and employ a large amount of labour It was the hope of everyone that the new industry of the Vegetable Parchment Works woull be a success, and with the collieries going, and jua. proved conditions of agriculture, he thought there was still a bright out-l-ok for the future of Flint ^At'thhTpoiot in the proceeding an Interesting event took place. The Treasurer (Mr Hugh Owen), r.queated the Chairman t) unveil a portrait of the late Alderman Alfred Dyson, presented to the Lodge by his brother, Major C. E. Dyson. Toe Chairman having performed the ceremony, Mr Hugn Uwen, continuing faid: The members of the Lodge had desired him to convey to Major Dyson their tmoere thanks for the present of the portrait of their late lamented brother and Chairman of the anmvereary dinner of the last 30 years. The Lodge felt they had lost a great friend and be was sure there was no pi-ce of furniture or regalia adoraing their hall that would be more appreoia ed than the poitriit of tho late Alderman Dyaon (hear, hear). Major Dyson in acknowledging the thanks of the Lodge for the portrait, spoke under manifest emotion when he referred to hia late brother. The portra;t is a large re-production by Brandenbourg, of Cheetir. of a photograph of the lata Alderman in his Mayoral robes. Mr J. Wilson Owen proposed the toast of 1, 0 air Guests," which was responded to by Mr W. T. I Pierce. "The Manchester Unity" was proposed by Dr. Kirkpatriok and responded to by Mr J. Owen Jones. ^Tbe Chairman moved the toast of The Flint Castle Lodge," which was responded to by Mr John Wilsoa Owen. "The Chairman" was submitted in feaoitous terms by Mr H. Owen and acknowledged by Mr J. L. Muspra t. The Host and Hostess (Brother and Mrs Henry Hughe3, Liverpool Arms), was proposed in congratulatory pterins by the Chairman and acknowledged. Referring to the present fiaancial condition of the Flint Castle Lodge, tha report of the Secretary (Mr Jas. Craig) for the past year may be quoted:- In ths 58th Balance Sheet, the first thoughts must be of congratulation on the suooess of the Sooiety for the last few years. By the statements annexed you will see that we have now a Sick Fund of LI,024 17a. Id. During the year we have paid in eick pay J6185 10s. lOd., and to dlt-triot funeral fund J657 Is. Od., making a total of JE242 11?. lOd. The management fund has also increased, and now amounts to L12 Oil. 5!d.

We have not lost a member by death, yet we have to mourn the loss of the oldest widow on the books. But during the year it is with regret that we mourn the loss of the late Alderman Dyson, Esq., one of our oldest Patrons, and Chairman of our Anniversary Meetings for over 30 years, aud also our late Medical Officer-Dr. Tho?. H. Hughes- The Juvenile Lodge again shows an increase, while there has been paid to five members on their transfer to Adult Lodge the sum of f5 6s. 83., their capital now amounting to E114 6s.

The weather, when the time arrived for the commencement of the sports, had considerably im- proved, and though a strong cold wind b ew aoroas the field, satisfaction was felt that the afternoon was dry. The attendance on the field was very satis- factory considering the weather that had prevailed, and bad an effect upon the attendance of people in tbe town generally. The following were the offioials of the sports:—Judge Mr W. T. Pierce Starter Mr Thomas Parry Clerks of the course Mesics S. Wilkinson and Robert P. Jones Handicappars; Messrs E. J. Hughes, J.P. and P. Matthews: Stiwards Major Dyson, V.D., J.P., Messrs T. W. Hughes, W. E. Bithell, W. Hughes, T. T. Sill, J. S. Rigby, Henry Hughes, T. Ryan, H. Sweetapple, H. T. Mannington; Seoretary: Mr J. Craig; Treasurer Mr Hugh Owen. The events were well contested, the horse and pony races were exoiting events and some Jcapital running was witnessed. The whippet races, though the entries were not eo numerous ai last year, oreatel a sufficiency of interest. The flat and hurdle rases were keen contests, and the entries were very numerous in each evant. Local men were well t) the froat ia flat and hurdle races. The horse racing was unfortunate for the jockeys, two riders sustainiug injuries by the horaea falling at a curve near the criokst pavillioa. One rider had a severely sprained ankle, and the other a scalp wound. Both men were attended to by medical gentlemen on the field, Dr. Williams and Dr. Kirkpatliok rendering assistance, and Mr Taylor, statienmaater, a member of the St. John Ambulance, afforded great help, and also attended to the con- veyance of the man with the injured foot on an ambulanoe stretoher to the station, for removal to his home at Chester. It inay here be mentioned that another instance of ambulance work, carried out by Mr Taylor, ocourred during the afternoon. Mr Sweetapple was hurryiog to the Station, to meet sjme friends, when he slipped and sprained hia ankle.

As the prosecutor had not put in an appearance, he (the Inspector) asked that he should be discharged.—The accused I admit taking the bc-t.-The Chairman You are disoharged aud had better go.-The accused Thank you sir. The man quickly left the court with a pleased expression on his countenance. STtMB Titiolwfi4a, Frank Doyle, a youth, appeared on a charge of assaulting a young woman, by bitting her with a stone. It appeared that at the last sessions the lad did not appear, but it was stated that the parties had settled the case before the oourt day. To this mode of procedure the Bench object id, and the parties were directed to appear before the Benoh. —The Chairman in dismissing the buy, said the bench were determined to put a stop to the practice of stone throwing. The Bench considered it was the parent's fault. If they would chastise the children proparly and have them under better oontrol, the praotice of stone throwing would soon be reduoed. BPABINQ THE BOD AND PAYING THB PENALTY, Two youths, named Edward Doyle and John Evans, were at the last Court, oharged by Police- Constable J. Adams, with stoae throwing. They were brought before the. Bench and discharged, on the understanding that the parents gave the lads a thrashing. The Inspector stated that in the case of Doyle the chastisement had been effectually carried out, but in the cisa of Evans, his father refused to thrash the boy he was agreeable to it being done by the Police.—'Police-Constable Adams proved the oase, and said on Saturday, May let, complaints were made of tho boys throwing stones at people as they came out of the Wesleyan Chapel. He saw the lads, who ran into their respective home3. He followed them and told Evans' father.-Evans was fined 5a. aodcost?. LICENSING. Upon the applieation of Mr T. W. Hughes (Messrs.

Its ent, and taw the three defendants, the two men were fighting in the midet of a great crowd. Before he could reach the combatants, Mary Brannan. who was urging the men on to fight, struck Pat. Travers on the head with a bar of iron, about 18 inches long and half-inch in diameter (bar producej). Travers staggered frum tho blow, and tho blood uparfad nut. He threatened to lock up the Brannans, unless they were quiet. Travers went quietly away without oeremony; ho went to a neighbour's house, where he bled profusely from the wound on his head. The three defendants were drunk. The conduct of the parties was a disgrace and a nuisance to the place, and was simply a repetition of a regular Saturday night ooonrrence,-The woman said Travers oaooe before her husband, and kicked him.—The Ohairman: Did you hit him with that iron rod?—The Woman Yes; I beg your pardon, I did.—The Chairman What have you to say ?—Defendant Branaan: Nothing more than she has said now, sir.-Travers said he went to fetch his mother away because she was soroaming murder; that was how he got in the row.—Fined D8. and coiti each, or seven days in default.

JOHNSON answered an inquiry as to a person who had just left the room: I do not wish to be calumnious, but it is my belief that the man is an attorney." THAT is a very handsome picture," he observed politely to the artist. What do you call it ?." That is a study from still life." What is the name of it ? » A Tramp at Work." A GENTLEMAN somewhat given to boasting of the high company he frequented, was indulging this amiable weakness at his club one evening when Jerrold was present. "Very singular!" he began, I dined at the Marchioness of So-and-so's last week, and we actually had no fish." Easily explained," said Jerrold; no doubt they had eaten it all up- stairs." As a canal boat was passing under a bridge, the captain gave the usual warning by calling aloud, "book out! when a little Frenchman, who was in till cabin obeyed the order by popping his head out of the window and thereby receiving a severe bump by coming in contact with the pillar of the bridge. He drew it back in a great pet, exclaiming, in evident disgust, Dese Anglais say, Look out!' when dey mean Look in! I" WIFE (looking up from a book): What do you think of this ? In the time of the Ptolemies a wife wad always given full control of her husband's pro- perty." Husband: Y-e-s but in those days the fashions never changed." WIFE (looking up from a book): "This writer says that half the miseries of married life come from the fact that wives do not have a certain, regular sum per week to spend as they please." Husband: True; and the other half of the misery comes from the fact that husbands do not have a certain, regular sum per week to spend as they please." A GIRL'S opinion of a young man before she marries him is very much like his mother's opinion of him; after marriage she thinks more as his father thinks. THE factories of England, France, Germany, and Holland produce about 87 million pins daily, and a contemporary asks, "Where do they all go to?" Young men who are in the courting business say that a great many of them go to waist. DOWNTON Why did you have such an ugly-look- ing cur as that stuffed and placed under a glass case ?"
