PAWNING A PAIR OF TROUSERS FOR MEDICINE. JAMESFBAXCIS THOMAS lives in Pontnewydd, near Pontyoop 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 of the family seemed to require it, and he continued to toil in the mines, suffering all the time from the effects of indigestion, an agonisingsymptombeingasthma, 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 dreadfu agony. One joint after another became swollen and inflamed, so that he was obliged to stop work In this sad plight the n,)w young man was conflnedjto 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 hold, when it was decided that an organic 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 caseø-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 new pair of trousers that he had been too ill to wear, had the mother reasoned 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 shop at Pontypool with the money obtained from the pawn- broker effected a oure in this hopeless ease, which had been pronounced as incurable. But it is only just to say that if the chemist had 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 hadorganil disease of the heart, as was supposed. The palpitation, rheumatism, ind 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 he will vouch for the curative properties of Seigel's Syrup, the article thatatfected thisalmost miraculous cure. The following letter is from a chemist, who thought the facts should be made known :—James Francis Thomas, of Pontnewydd, 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 come plaint to be rheumatism and heart disease of 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 Rev. Dr. Stubbs, late canon of St. Paul's, and Regius Professor of Modern His- tory at Oxford, was on Friday, at York, con- secrated Bishop of Chester. The ceremony was performed by the Archbishop of York, assisted by the Bishops of Liverpool, New- castle, Durham, Sodor and Man, Manchester, Carlisle, and St. Albans. The sermon was preached by the Rev. Dr. Ray. Some startling disclosures were made in the Birmingham Police Court on Saturday in con- nection with the examination of James Francis Egan, the Fenian who was recently arrested in that town. Mr. Poland, who prosecuted on behalf of the Treasury, preferred a charge of treason-felon}', and in the course of his opening statement read a mass of correspondence whicn had been discovered in at in box buried in the garden attached to the prisoner's house. Among the papers was a printed draft of The Constitution of the Irish Republic," together with the laws for the guidance of officors upon whom devolved the collecting of War material. Every member of the organisation was to con- tribute threepence a week to the war fund, and a penny a month to a fund to meet the expenses of general management. The correspondence conclusively established Egan's complicity, and also connected with him the man Daly, who was arrested in Birkenhead on Good Friday morning. The prisoner was remanded for a week. Daly, who on Saturday was trans- ferred from the Liverpool to the Birkenhead Police Court, was also remanded, and it is understood that he will eventually be removed to Birmingham, where he will be placed on his trial with Egan. THE BUDGET. The Chancellor of the Exchequer on Thurs- day evening made his yearly financial state- ment in the House of Commons. In review- ing the finances of the past year he pointed out that the spirit duties had yielded £ 105,000 less than in the previous year, a result which he attributed to the mild winter. The revenue from beer was E338, 000 in excess of the estimate. The revenue for the past year was £ 87 205,000, as compared with the estimate of S86,549,000 while the expenditure had been £ 86,999,000. The estimated revenue for the current year was £ 85,555,000, and the expenditure C85,291,825, leaving an estimated surplus of £ 263,000. The only relief he proposed to give was a reduction in the carriage duties. The tax of two guineas on four-wheelers would be reduced to 15s., the same as for two-whaelers. Where carriages were used for the first time after September 30th they would pay only half duty. That remission would absorb £ 22,000. With regard to the gold coinage, he proposed to call in light gold and to issue, instead of the present half- overeign, ten-shilling gold pieces containing only n;ne-tenths of the present amount of gold, but having the same relation to the sovereign as the crown and half-crown. Further, he proposed to create Two-and-three-quarterStock. The only other announcement made by the right hon. gentleman was that, in consequence of the loss which the initiation of the parcels post had entailed, the sixpenny telegrams would not come into operation until the 1st of Auguat, 1886. In the criticism which followed, com- plaint-was made that theie was no diminution of the tobacco tax, and that to pospone the sixpenny telegrams to the August of next year, after having promised them last year, was simply trifling with the country. Exception was also taken to the issue of the new ten- shilling gold pieces, which was nothing more than a plan for debasing the gold coinage.—The Budget as a whole presents no feature of interest, and may be pronounced as a very tame production. The reduction of the duty on four-wheel carriages from £ 2 2s. Od. to 15s. we think was uncalled for. A four-wheel vehicle is a luxury, and those who use it should,pay for it accordingly. Would it not have been better to have studied the interests of the working-man than to relieve the well-to-do classes of the community ? HOPE FOR THE FARMERS. At the present time it may interest our readers if we quote the following remarks of a contemporary :—Englishmen are proverbially grumblers, and the English farmer is no exception to the rule. But while most men grumble with insufficient cause, and many with no cause at all most people will be ready to concede the farmer a large measure of sympathy, seeing that the variableness of the climate is a matter beyond his con- trol. There can be no doubt that the farmer has had a bad time of it in recent years. The very elements seem to have entered into league with his rivals, for the sun shines more brightly upon the foreign cornfield than it does on his, aim though the nation at large may be benefited by competition from abroad, the far- mer, as such, feels himself at a disadvantage,
