VAIVNING A PAIR OF TROUSERS FOR MEDICINE. JAMESFRAXCIS TIIOMAS lives in Pontnewydd, near Pontypool Monmouthshire. He is now twenty-three years of age. living with his mother, a widow. Some eleven "years ago, then a mere boy, he went to work in the coal-pit as a miner, in order to assist his mother in rearing her family of little chil- dren. Soon, however, the little fellow broke down in health but the necessities ofthe family seemed to require it, and he continued to toil in the mines, suffering all the time from the effects of indigi stion, an agonising symptom being asthma, in such a troublesome form that the boy was unable to lie in bed. Working through the day, and resting as best he could in an arm-chair during ithe night naturally undermined his constitution. Year by year his health grew worse and worse, until at last, rheumatism came with all its dreadful agony. One joint after another became swollen and inflamed. so that he was obliged to stop work In this sad plight the now young man was confinedjto the house for two long years, suffering all that mortal could endure. One physician after another was called upon to treat his complaint, but with no benefit, for the poor fellow continued to grow worse and worse. Hoping to find some means of relief, a consultation of doctors was held, when it was decided that anorganic disease of the heart existed in an incurable form, and that medical aid could not afford relief. He was given up to die. These years of expensive medical treatment had exhausted the little savings of the mother, and they had no money even to buy the necessaries of life. But a fond mother never gives up in despair. There was one spark of hope left. Someone had told her of a remedy that had cured so many cases-even when as hopeless as this one seemed to be-and the mother's love went out for her dear boy. But how to get the medicine was the question. Their money was entirely gone. The boy had a now pair of trousers that he had been too ill to wear, had the mother rea«>ned within herself, If the boy is to die en will not nead them, so that I may as well pledge them for medicine with an effort to save his life." Strange as it may appear, the bottles of medicine procured at the chemist's shopat Pontypool with the money obtained from the pawn- broker effected a cure in this hopeless case, which had been pronounced as incurable. But it is only just to say that if thechemisthad known of the wants of the family the medicine could have been obtained without a visit to the pawnbroker. It is now nearly two years since this took place, and young James Francis Thomas has been working in the coal-pit underground ever since, earning extra pay for over-work, which he is able to perform. Of course he never had organic disease of the heart, as wan supposed. The palpitation, rheumatism, and asthma, were mere symptoms of the real disease, which was dyspepsia, or indigestion, for which the remedy was specially adapted. Those who wish to commu- nicate with this young man can write to him at the above address, and ho will vouch for the curative properties of Seigel's Syrup, the article that affectei this almost miraculous cure. The following letter is from a chemist, who thought the facts should be made known :—James Francis Thomas, of Pontnewyud, near Pontypool, age twenty-three, collier, was ill for nine years, unable to do any work for three years, never lay down in bed for nine years, had to sleep in a stooping posture, was treated by nearly all the doctors for miles around, who generally stated his com- plaint to berheumatismandheartdiseaseof a chronic nature, and beyond all power to cure. When hope had nearly died out he was persuaded to try Siegel's Syrup; and to the delight of his relatives and astonishment of his neighbours, after taking half a bottle he could lie down in bed. After taking one bottle he went to work. Has now taken two bottles, and on with the third, and is quite well and strong. His mother is in raptures, and can talk of nothing else but this marvellous cure, and wishes me to make it known.

The Houso of Commons met on Saturday at twelve o'clock, and did not adjourn until a quarter to six on Sunday morning. A Cabinet Council was held on Sunday morning at the Premier's residence in Downing-street. Mr. Broadhurst's bill to enable lease-holders to acquire the fee-simple of their ground sites, by forcing the ground landlords to sell to them, came before the House of Commons, on Wednesday, for second reading, when it was thrown out by a majority of 64. A terrible tragedy was enacted near Bangor, on Wednesday, when a man named John Price, residing with his stepmother, Catherine Price, at a farmhouse known as Tymain, Aberogwen, on the Penrhyn estate, first cut the woman's throat and then committed suicide. Two important alterations in the regulations of the Post Office Savings Bank are in contem- plation by the Government. One is to allow a person to deposit in any one year £ 100, instead of zC30 as at present and the other is to allow the maximum amount to the credit of any shareholder to be 1:300. A long debate arose in the House of Commons on Friday on the claims of Aberystwith College to the continuance of the Government grant. The subject was introduced by Mr. Rendle, who suggested that the College of Aberystwith should be placed on an equal footing with the colleges of Bangor and Cardiff. Mr. Mundella, on behalf of the Government, promised that the financial position of the college should be inquired into. The raid on Sunday tipplers at Wroxham has resulted in the defendants being mulched in heavy penalties, several persons were sum- moned for selling or exposing beer for sale without a license on Sunday, the 2nd inst., and about thirty persons were summoned for aiding and abetting. Two of the defendants were fined £2¿; each and costs, and one was sentenced to a month's imprisonment without the option of a fine. The persons summoned for aiding and abetting were ordered to pay the costs. Mr. Gladstone is still suffering from sore throat, and has been ordered rest. On Wed- nesday he was reported to be somewhat better, and he left his official residence that day for Coombe, near Wimbledon, where it is under- I stood that tho right hon. gentleman will remain until Monday next. The right hon. gentleman, who was accompanied by Mrs. Gladstone, travelled by road in a closed carriage. The woman Wilkinson, who has been remanded several times at Knutsford, charged with attempting to murder her son and his wife, was on Wednesday discharged, there being lack of evidence to prove the prisoner's guilt. The magistrates strongly condemned the irx and vicious system of granting life assurances which had been brought to light during ,he investigation of the case. Mr. Gladstone, in reply to the memorial presented to him by the Governors of the University College of Wales, at Aberystwith, has written stating that he is very sensible of the importance of this appeal for a grant of public money in aid of the funds of the college, and the memorialists may rely upon it receiving from himself and his colleagues all the con- sideration to which the importance of such a representation entitles it. Those who support the prayer of the petition may be sure that whatever the decision of the Government on the subject may be, it will have in view how best to serve the interests of higher education in Wales generally, and that such decision will be taken without prejudice. THE LATE RIGHT HON. LORD MOSTYN. Lord Mostyn passed away about noon on Monday last, in the home of his forefathers, in his ninetieth yoar. A biographical sketch of his lordship will be found elsewhere in our issue of to-day. His lordship and his ances- tors boro the brunt of many severe election contests for the County and Boroughs of Flint, and it has been estimated that the Mostyn family, including Sir Thomas and Sir Roger Mostyn, of Mustyn, the first Lord Mostyn, (Sir Edward Lloyd, of Pengwern,) tho late lord, and his son, Mr. Mostyn, must have spent £100,000 in electioneering contests. The present lord is a nephew of the Marquis of Abergavenny, and will in due course take his seat in the House of Lords, and will be one of the youngest Peers of the present day, being only 28 years of ago. The late Lord Mostyn was th3 oldest Peer in the realm, and the oldest Chairman of Board of Guardians in the kingdom. During his long life he was an ardent sportsman, and at one time distanced all noblemen and gentlemen on the turf-his two celebrated mares, the Queen of Trumps and Usury being considered the fastest on record; the latter, although being less than 15 hands high, beat the Marquis of Westminster's cele- brated horse Touchstone on the Holywell race course. Lord Mostyn for many years past held the office of Lord Lieutenant of the County of Merioneth, and public anticipation runs high as to who will be his successor.
