ITHE WEEK'S NEWS.
I THE WEEK'S NEWS. Mrs Davies, a litigant well-known in the Lon- don law courts, has been committed to prison for three months for contempt of court.: The Hon. F. C. Howard, brother of the Earl of Effingham, committed suicide, at his residence in South Kensington, by shooting himself. At the Old Bailey, Thomas Greenwood was sen- tenced to twelve months' hard labour for neglect- ing and ill-treating his children, and to 22 months hard labour for criminally assaulting his daughter aged 14 years. kle(lime I The man Windham, who recently shot his father dead at stroud, in Gloucestershire, was committed for trial. Evidence was given showing that the deceased had always treated the accused with cruelty, and had once 11 cut his head open." A whale, thirty feet long and weighing 5,000 kilogrammes, has been caught near Honfleur. The whale came too near the shore, and this led to its capture. In its death struggles, which lasted several hours, with its enormous tail it made the spray fly a great distance. Tne Most Rev Robert Knox, D.D., Protestant Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ire- land, died at the Palace, Armagh. His Grace, who was born in 1808, was elected Bishop of Down, Connor, and Dromore in 1849, and Arch- bishop and Primate in 1886. JL ne official report on the explosion in the Combs pit, Thornhill, near Dewsbury, states that the 139 men were killed not by fire or force, but by after damp. The disaster was caused by the contract of gas with a naked light, and it is urged that the law as to safety lamps should be made stricter. DR. POLLARD SAYS OF SFLKBMAN BIJPTURE TREATMENT :-He thanks God and every other influence that determined him to try it. All who want to get rid of Rupture and Trusses should send to J. A. Sherman, Hernia Specialist, 64, Chancery Lane, London, for his book with English endorsements, post free, 7dw A fatal explosion occurred at Melbourne, in the laboratory of a chemist, named Liardet, while he was making experiments with a powerful explo- sive after years of labour, and at an expense of thousands of pounds. The substance exploded, and the unfortunate man was blown to pieces, his mangled remains being projected through a wooden partition. At Red Hill Quarry, near Leicester, a boiler ex- ploded, with disastrous results. A youth named Rippington, aged seventeen was killed, and five men were seriously injured, one of them so badly that he i& not expected to live. The cause of the explosion is at present unknown, but its force was such that the boiler was lifted from its position and carried a distance of a hundred yards over the trees. A convict named Williams, a bad character, made a murderous attack upon a warder named Neale, at Borstal Prison, near Rochester, knock- ing him down with a shovel, and striking him vio- lently many times. Another prisoner, named Livingstone, who was working in manacles, went to the warder's rescue, and the pair held the des- perado until assistance arrived. Neale was badly injured. At Wolverhampton, Mike Small, of Upper Hol- loway, London; Harry Brown, of Walsall, pro- fessional pugilists, and five other men were com- mitted for trial for taking part in a prize fight. The two first-named were advertised to give a dis- play of boxing for a prize of < £ 50, the best man in twenty rounds, but the affair was of such a brutal charater that the Chief Constable interfered and stopped the fight. Here is an incident from St. Bartholomew's Hospital: A boy, who was crying very much, and said he lived at Goswell-road, London, carried a brown retriever into the surgery and begged to have it attended to. The surgeons good-naturedly consented to examine it. The dog's tail was found to be severely crushed; chloroform was adminis- tered, and the tail was amputated. The boy de- parted quite cheerfully, with his pet under his arm. A child has met a terrible death at Carrick-on- Suir. Mrs Power, a farmer's wife, was boiling a huge pot of water on the kitchen fire, and left the room for a few minutes. On returning she sat down to blow the fire, and was horrified to see a little hand clasping the edge of the pot. On look- ing in she saw the girl literally boiled to death. fhe little one had climbed on the stool, over- balanced herself, and fallen into the pot, with the result that she was boiled to death. The Home Secretary has ordered the release of Walter James Lyons, a young man, who was sen- tenced three years ago to seven years' penal ser- vitude for the manslaughter of Sergeat-major Stew&rt, of the Royal Artillery, at Plumstead. Lyons one night found the soldier at the house of his mother, and, believing he was there for an im- proper purpose, stabbed him to the heart. Lyons ,vas indicted for murder, but the jury found him guilty of the lesser crime. General Hutchinson, of the Board of Trade, has held an inquiry into an accident which occurred in August last-the sixth fatal one since 1878-at Rayner's lane level crossing on the Lan- cashire and Yorkshire Railway, near Ashton. He says the only safeguard appears to be to have a gatekeeper stationed at the crossing until it can be abolished, and to provide signals interlocked with the gates, and he urges the Railway Com- pany to adopt these measures without delay. Manufacturers at West Hartlepool have for six weeks been suffering from scarcity of water, and some large concerns have been running only part time. In consequence of the continuance of the drought the Hartlepool Gas and Water Company sent out notices that water supplies for manu- facturing purposes would be cut off altogether Most of the large works will soon be brought to a complete stoppage and thousands of workmen thrown idle. No rain has fallen in the district for some weeks. James Embley, alias Whitehead, aged sixty, who is alleged to have duped a large number of people in East Lancashire and West Yorkshire with remirkably graphic stories of adventure by flood Ltnct field, including the rescue of a million- aire, who left him a large fortune, was brought up before the magistrates on a charge of defraudin Mrs Pickring, of Great Harwood. Prisoner, who has thirty years gaol record against him in Man- chester, Preston, and other northern towns, was committed for trial. Mr F. Price held an inquiry respecting the death of Elizabeth Ann Rider, Lovenshulme, a mantle braider. About four o'clock on Saturday afternoon the deceased went upstairs, and when near the top she missed her footing and fell to the bottom. She called out, "Oh, my head, my poor head," and her brother-in-law, on examining her, found that the fall had caused a hairpin to pene- trate her skull. It was so firmly embedded that he had some difficulty in pulling it out. A verdict of accidental death was returned. A Belgian officer, Captain Felix, who was re cently sentenced by a court-martial to degradation for having stolen money from a bathing machine at Ostend last summer, may certainly consider the circumstances under which he has been acquitel of the offence by the military Cdnrt of Appeal singularly lucky. One of the great points in the evidence against him was, that in the purse which he was accused of stealing from a lady's bathing cabin, there was amongst other coins a gold Napoleon with a black spot on the back. An ex- actly similar coin, it appears, was found in the Belgian officer's possession, and much stress was laid upon the fact. After his condemnation he appealed, and for the defence the governer and treasurer of the National Bank were called. They stated that they had made an experiment. Two bags of cold had, by their instructions, been taken haphazard from tneir vaults, and it had been found that of a hundred gold coins ninty were Napoleons, and that three-quarters of the latter had a black spot on the back. This statement created a sensation, and the officer was acquitted. IMPORTANT DISCOVERIES OF GOLD a.re no doubt of great value to society, especially at a time like the present, when the money market is so tight and poverty so distressing. Still, however, there an some things in this world far more precious than g-old, in spite of the immense influence it wields over mankind. Health, for instance, can- not be purchased for money, but it may be pre- served and secured by the use of Holloway's Pills. I No family should be without them, as they are equally good in their effects for either old or y unsf; No complaint can for long withstand their healing power. They drive out all inipu- I rlties from the blood, strengthen the digestive I organs, and cleanse the stomach.
WALES AND WELSHMEN.
WALES AND WELSHMEN. The Rev. T. Williams, of Hitchen, has entered I on the pastorate of the Alfred-place Baptist Church, Aberystwith. A Leeswood colliery is reported to have been flooded. The ponies in the pit were drowned, and it is expected that work cannot be resumed for some time. Messrs Watts, Ward and Co., of South Wales, have again secured the contract for 100,000 tons of Risca coal, to be supplied to the Egyptian railways during the next twelve months. On Tuesday a young man named Davies, residing at Pentre, near Flint, was engaged down the new Flint Coal and Cannel Company's pit, when the roof gave in, and he was killed by the fall of a quantity of material. A distraint for tithe due to a neighbouring rector took place at Bala. There was a slight demonstration of the kind which was common during the earlier stages of the anti-tithe move- ment, but no violence was resorted to. In the Court of Appeal Mrs Davies, a lady residing near Cardiff; sued her brother, Sir Morgan Morgan, and a medical man for damages for alleged false imprisonment. A verdict for JB1,250 was given for the plaintiff by consent. The Denbighshire and Flintshire Congrega- tional Association, at their quarterly meeting, held at Connah's Quay, passed a resolution deploring the continuance cf the coal strike, and suggesting the establishment of boards of ubitration.1 WBIEgg BJ The Rev. Martin Luther Jones, vicar of St. Margaret's, Aberaman, was found dead in bed on Wednesday morning. Mr Jones was formerly curate of Aberdare parish, and was appointed to the living of Aberaman by the Warden and Coun- cil of Keble College, Oxford. CADBURY 's COCOA has, in a remarkable degree, those natural elements of sustenance which give the system endurance and hardihood, building up muscle and bodily vigour, with a steady action that renders it a most acceptable and reliable beverage.Health. An inquest was held on the body of a Cambrian Railways engine driver, who during the early hours of Sunday morning week, while on his way home from Oswestry, is supposed to have fallen over a cliff. The jury returned a verdict of accidental death and called attention to the dangerous character of the spot. The Bishop of St. Asaph attended Rhyl Parish Church and dedicated a new vestry, a lectern, and other gifts to the church. Afterwards, at the new cemetery, he dedicated a lych-gate erected to the memory of the late Canon Howell Evans. And, lastly, he took part in the ceremony of laying the foundation f )ne of a new church in Vale-road, the coet of which is being defrayed by Mrs B. J. Nicholson. The Great Western Railway Company have determined upon supplying the inhabitants of Rhos with railway facilities to Wrexham. The ground, it is stated, has 1 een already surveyed, and it is proposed to have two passenger stations, one at the bottom of Gutterhill, and the other in the centre of Rhos, the particular places being already marked out. The line will join the main line between Hafod and Bersham. The members of the Pwllheli Board of Guard- ians have just had to determine a novel point on poor law administration. They are fortunate enough to have officials who, though entitled to demand to be supplied with beer, abstain from its use. But as a consideration for this voluntary abstention the master recently applied for an allowance. The Guardians refused the applica- tion, whereupon the claim to be supplied with beer was reasserted. The Guardians, at their lr last meeting, decided to make an allowance to the officials who did not take beer, subject to the con- sent of the Local Government Board.^ A movement has been started Iin Radnorshire for presenting Mr S. C. Evans-Williams, of Bryn. tirion, Rhayader, with a testimonial in recogni- tion of his services to Liberalism. Mr Evans- Williams, who proposes to leave the district shortly, is the president of the County Liberal Association. He formerly represented the Radnor Boroughs in Parliament, and he contributed largely to the success of Mr Frank Edwards, the present representative of Radnorshire, at the last election. In addition to his political work, he has taken a keen interest in county business, and he will be much missed in many different spheres. A distressing story of disappointed love was disclosed at the Rhyl Police Court, where Miss Eiith Hill, who is described as a prepossessing young lady," twenty-one years of age, and formerly a barmaid at the Dudley Arms Hotel, Rhyl, was cu n'ofed with attempting to commit suicide. Bet 'en Miss Hill and a young man named Hughes a mutual attachment seems to have developed, and they were looked upon as sweethearts. The negotiations, judging from the evidence, proceeded happily enough until Hughes received a pormtil order to discontinue all communication with Miss Hill. The order was obeyed. Miss Hill, anxious apparently to give or receive some explanation, called upon Hughes at his lodgings but he refu-ed to see her. There was a bottle containing spirits of ammonia in the room into which Miss Hill had been shown, and this in a moment of despair she seized and drank. Evidence was adjourned until to-day (Monday). At Bangor considerable interest was taken in an inquiry conducted by Mr Bircham, Local Government Board inspector, into certain allega- tions brought by the Bangor and Beaumaris Board of Guardians against Mr W. Dixon, reliev- ing officer and collector for the Bangor district. The latter was charged with omitting to account for .£35 17s 101, paid to him by the Rev Henry Hatton, an Irish clergyman, towards the support of of a pauper lunatic with omitting to account for sums of J66 and Y,15, received by him on ac- count of Mary Hughes, a pauper, and with tak- ing credit for money as paid to Mr Pritchard. Dean-street, Bangor, which it was alleged had not been paid, Evidence was given by a number of witnesses, and Mr Dixon made a lengthy state- ment of defence, in which he admitted that his procedure had been irregular, but absolutely denied that there had been any intention to de- fraud. There was a scene of much excitement in the vicinity of Carnarvon railway station, occasioned by the re-appearance in the town of the notorious criminal Francis Ashby, who escaped from the Carnarvon prison some months ago, and was recently sentenced at the Colchester Assizes to seven years' penal servitude for theft. Ashby, whose appearance is greatly altered, had his feet in irons, and was in charge of two Colchester warders, who immediately drove with him to the prison. At the time of his escape Ashby was awaiting his trial for burglary at Holyhead.— At the Carnarvon and Anglesey Assizes, held on Thursday at Carnarvon, before Mr Justice Collins, Ashby was sentenced to twelve months' imprisonment. Ashby, who appears to be well educated and respectably connected, appealed to the judge to exert his influence to prevent persons who slipped from the path of right, being hounded down by prosecution and made as he had been, a pest and scourge to society." There was a large attendance of delegates at the annual meeting, held at Denbigh, of the West Denbighshire Liberal Association. Mr Thomas Gee was re-elected president, and refer- ences were made to the long ^nd valued services he had rendered to Welsh Liberalism. A large number of resolutions were passed, the principal one relating to Disestablishment. The Govern- ment were urged to introduce the Welsh measure next session, and to press it forward as rapidly as possible. In the event of their failing to do so, the meeting unanimously decided to ask their member to visit the constitu- ency and to take the opinion of the electors as to what steps should be adopted. The other associa- tions throughout Wales were invited to pass sim- ilar resolutions. The delegates expressed approval of the services of Mr H. Roberts, M.P., as a mem- ber for the West division of the county, and con- gratulated in the most cordial terms Mr and Mrs Roberts on their recent marriage. Mr Roberts in acknowledging these expressions of opinion and goodwill, delivered an interesting speech. His references to the Disestablishment question were reassuring. — ■ i;*<

SEHl0ITS CHAHGE AGAINST 4…
SEHl0ITS CHAHGE AGAINST 4 NEWTOWN MAN. STRANGE ADVENTURES OF A MARRIED MAN. At the Newtown Police Court on Tuesday, before Richard Lloyd, Esq. (chairman), and Captain Edward Pryce-Jones, Charles Jones, a married man, moulder, living at Pool-road, Newtown, was brought up on a warrant, and charged with committing an indecent assault upon Mary Elizabeth Davies, aged 22, a domestic servant in the employ of Mr Thomas Powell, of Kerry-road, Newtown, on Saturday, October 23rd. Mr Edward Powell defended the prisoner. Prosecutrix said on the night in question she went to the Eagle Vaults to fetch some beer, and then returned home. While going up the Kerry-road she noticed that someone was following her, but she dia not know who it was. The person was about a yard bshind her. She took the beer into the house, auu then went outdoors to the W.C. for the purpose of emptying a utensil. As she was coming out of th latter place the prisoner appeared and caught hold o< her, threw her on to the seat and committed the assault complained of. She struggled with the prisoner and screamed out. In cross-examination by Mr Powell, prosecutrix said she did not know prisoner, but she kaew where he lived and also Knew him by sight. She had never been for a walk with prisoner, and had never spoken to him. When near the Eagle Vaults she saw the prisoner, but he did not eay to her How are you, Mary?" She could not say who the man was that was following her nor did she speak to him. She did say, in answer to prisoner, when by the house, I do not know; it is very late; I will try." She came through the back door out into the yard. It was about 10-46. He caught hold of her by the waist and threw her down on to the ground. Witness cried out Oh! dear me, leave me alone." It was about three minutes from the time that she entered the W.C. until assistance eame. Prisoner was not drunk. She had the same clothes on then as she had on when the assault was committed, and they were neither torn or soiled. When she went into the house she told her master and mistress what had taken pla4. Edward Gittins, blacksmith, Station-court, Kerry- road, Newtown, said that on the night in question he went into his back yard, and while there he heard some groaniBg, as if coming from the next yard. He went there, and met prosecutrix coming out of one of the closets. He asked What was the row about," and she replied" That a man had assaulted her," and witness went inside, brought him out and recog- nised him as prisoner. Mr Powell, the girl's master, then came on the scene. Powell called for a police- man in order that priboner might be arrested. Prisoner appeared to be sober. In answer to Mr Powell, witness said the girl was not crying. By the Bench He did not hear the girl utter any words; the groans were loud enough to be heard at about ten or a dozen yards away. There was no scree ming. But the greans sounded as if someone was hurt or in trouble. Mr Thomas Powell, warehouseman, Kerry-road, Newtown, said prosecutrix was in his employ as domestic servant. About eleven o'clock on Saturday night he heard a row going on in the yard. He was in his house at the time, and the doors were closed. He went out of doors and proceeded to the closets, and saw prisoner pulled out by the last witness. Witness laid hold of him and asked him what his business was there, but prisoner gave no reply. Witness asked him his name, but again he did not answer. Witness shook him, boxed his ears, and told him that he should inform the police about it; and then prisoner made himself scarce. The girl made no communication either to him or his wife. Cross-examined by Mr Powell: Witness said that he saw the girl going into the yard, and a little later he heard the noise. He noticed nothing wrong about the girl's dress, and he did not think at the time that the prisoner had committed the assault on the girl, and he threatened him with the police because he was annoyed by prisoner being on his premises at that hour of the night. By the Bench: Prosecutrix was not crying, nor did she appear vexed or troubled. Dr. Palmer was next called, and he gave a detailed description of his examination of the girl, which was quite consistent with her story. P S. Morgan proved the arrest of the prisoner, who said when he read the warrant over to him, Good gracious, I am quite innocent of that; but I was drunk, and I do not remember anything about it. If I had been sober I might have a chance to know what I had done." This closed the caae for the prosecution. Mr Powell then addressed the Bench for the defence. He said that the charge made against this young man was one of a very serious nature, and the judges have from time to time said that cases of this character should not be sent to the assizes for trial, unless the magistrates thought they would be sure to get a conviction. There had been a great deal of interest taken iu these cases, on account ot the repulsive nature of the charge, and if their Worships sent this prisoner for trial, they would again bring before the public the whole evidence again. Mr Powell then went through the evidence of the prosecutrix at some length. He said that her master nor mistress saw nathing the matter with her dress aud nothing the matter with the girl afterwards. If the girl had been violently assaulted, as was alleged, she would have shouted, but nothing of this kind took place. The witness Gittins heard groans, which were so alight that he had to lojk in three closets before he found where they came from, and then he fonndthe girl walking calmly out through the door. He contended that these circumstances pointed to the girl being a consenting party, and ihit when she found that they were discovered, naturally put the blame on the man. He did not say tor one moment that prisoner acted properly; ne acted very im. properly, and it was to be hoped that it would be a lesson to him as long as he lived. Bat it was evident he committel ths offence with the consent of the girl. The B'nch retired, and after a short deliberation, Mr Lloyd said that they had given the matter their most careful consideration, aud had weighed the evidence in their minds, and were of opinion that the evidence was of such a nature that they could not tell whether the girl was a consenting party or not. There was a considerable amount of doubt, and they therefore give the prisoner th* benefit of the doubt, and dismiss the case. They must siy this thiit the prisoner had had a very narrow escape, and if the jury at the assizes had brought a true bill aainot 1 him he would have been very severely punished, and most probably have been sent to a long term of penal servitude. His conduct had been shameful, and he ought to walk tne streets shame-faced as long as he lived.
DECEIVING THE PUBLIC.
DECEIVING THE PUBLIC. The hearing of the summons against Thomas Henry Downing, trading as Downing & Co., hosiery manufacturers, of Leicester, for an infringement under the Merchandise Marks Act, 1887, took place at Leicester, on Thursday. At the first hearing, on Monday, only one of the charges was taken-namely. that of falsely describing certain vests as Sparken- hoe hygienic underclothing—women's natural wool vests, No. 518," the falsity of the description alleged lying in the fact that the vesis were no: all w..ol, but contained an admixture of cotton. The admixture of cotton was admitted, but it was contended for the defendant that this constituted no offence against the Act, as the term natural wool was known in the trade to cover, in the lower prices, articles which were not all wool. The goods, as described above, were ordered by a custo. mer, but on analysis the vests were found to con aiD i9 per ceut cf cotton. The result was that the Board of Trade took up the prosecutioIl.-Defe'ildr,'Jt'" counsel called witnesses to prove that the term "natural wool," a understood by the trade, as ap- plying both to goods that were all wool, and also to goods which contained an admixture of cotton He contended that the Act was passed in express coa- templation of the fact that there were certain trade descriptions applied to classes ot' goods, which, whilst literally false, were commercially true.— The magistrates fined defendant X5 and costs. It is said that he will appeal, as the case is regarded as a test action, involving a principle of great importance to traders.

Thruston, Pon- nal Towers, sued Richard Edwards, Penrhynback for the recovery of £ 3 13a Sd, balance of rent of Werglodd Fach meadow. Mr Foulkes Jones, Mach- ynlleth, appeared for the defendant, who counter- claimed Y,3 for a sheep-walk.-Mr Thruetcn said that the defendant bad taken the field Werglodd at £10 14s. He had previously for 14 years farmed Penbryn, but as he had only 15 sheep and did not use the sheep walk, and he (plaintiff) did not want to lose his right in it, three years ago he made an arrangement whereby David Jones, Gellellog, was to take the sheep-walk and compensate defendant for the loss of it. Since then defendant had left Penybryn, which was held in hand, and he (plaintiff) had bought 120 sheep and manure from defendant. He was to make an arrangement with David Jones as to the payment for the sheep-walk. He had tried to help defendant by employing him, and though he had settled up several matters with defendant since, he had made no claim for the sheep-walk. In June he wanted to take Werglodd. Plaintiff replied that he was a bad tenant, and had ruined the land. He, however, let him a field, and he not only sold the hay off it. which he was under a penalty not to do, but refused to pay 'he rent.—Defendant was called, and admitted that he paid the rent of Penbryn in full to Mr Lewis Williams, Mr Thruston's agent, and had made no claim in respect of the sheep-walk taken; but Mr Lewis Williams knew nothing about the sheep-walk, and he (defendant) intended all along to make his claim on plaintiff in respect of it.—Mr Thruston replied that he had had lengthy discussions with defendant respecting taking the sheep of Peny- bryn, the manure, &c., and he had never made a claim for the sheep-walk. The rent of Peny- bryn was due in March, and the taking of Werglodd was in June, and was a wholly distinct thing. The arrangement between David Jones and defendant for compensation he believed, was 15s. The sheep-walk was capable of carrying 100 sheep, but defendant had 15 only. The walk was, there- fore, understocked. Neighbours' sheep encroached, and were doing injury to the farm.—Defendant said that at one time he had 60 sheep on the walk, but they had gone down since. He had, nevertheless, paid the rent. Mr Thruston said that last autumn, when he suggested that he should buy defendant's! hay in order to set it off against the rent, defendant still said nothing about the claim for the sheep-walk. -David Jones, Gellellog, another tenant of Mr Thruston's, said that two years ago last March he took the Penybryn sheep-walk from Mr Lewis Jones. Mr Thruston s agent, at X2. He paid one year's rent to Mr Price, another of Mr Thuston's agsnts, and did not pay the other year's rent because Mr Lewis Williams, a third agent, knew nothing about it. Did not pay defendant because he claimed £ 3.— The Judge called Mr Evans, Gwerniago, to give an estimate of the value of the sheep-walk. He said it was capable of carrying 100 sheep. One shilling a head was generally charged, which would mean .£5. The sum of ^3 would be a fair rent.—The Judge gave judgment for the plaintiff for the balance of rent, and for the defendant on his counter claim in respect of the sheep-walk, at the same time telling Mr Thnsten he was entitled to recover the rent of the sheep-walk from David Jones.—Mr Thruston said that had been arranged.—Mr Thruston with- drew an action against Evan Williams, Rees-terrace, Peanal, for the recovery of £1 lls 8d for rent and alleged damage. 1 ITHKS.—Canon Trevor, Machynlleth Rectory, obtained an order for distraint for the recovery of « £ 1 Os 2d tithe from Edwaid Lewis, Henllanucha, Machynlleth.
SNAKE POISON AND HUMAN POISON.
SNAKE POISON AND HUMAN POISON. The bite of the rattlesnake is almost always fatal to man. Yet this snake is never affected by the injection of its own poison into its own blood, neither when enraged it bites itself nor when its venom is injected by artificial means to test the question. Speaking on the latter point Dr. S. Weir Mitchell, an expert on snake poison, says: "I have over and over tried this experiment, but in no case have I seen death result." Why should this be ? Dr. Mitchell futher says "The many noxious compound man carries in his liver and gastric glands (the stomach) are fatal if they enter the blood in any large amount. There is scarcely an organ in man's body which is not a possible source of poison to him Small doses are constantly passing into and out of his blood. The question is whether he can get rid of it as fast as it accumulates." Alluding to death by rheumatism, gout, and kidney disease, all eminent London physician says. Thus man is poisoned by the products of his own body." Now let us cite a passaga from a man's experience as related by himself. The time extends over a period from March, 1888, to May, 1889, more tban a year. He says: My head uted to whirl around, and I had frequent bouts of faintness and giddiness and at such times I used to fall down, no matter where I was. This would occur two or three times a day. For three weeks I was confined to my bed. I grew gradually weaker and weaker and lost a deal of sleep. I felt worse tired in the morning than when I went to bed. After a while I became nervous, and my legs trembled and shook under me to such a degree that I feared to walk out. I had great pain in m> kidneys, and the secretion which I voided from them was thick and ydlcw as the yolk of an egg. Montii after month passed and I failed more ard more, and could hardly crawl about. I had a doctor attending me, but his medicines did not benefit me. He said my liver and kidneys were in a bad way, and that he never saw secretions passed in such a state. After treating me six mouths, he told me that medicine could do no more for me aud advised me to go to a hospital. I went to the Peterborough Hospital, but got worse while there. The hospital doctors refused to teil me what ailed me. Having sp-nt two months tbere, I got anxious and returned to my home, utterly disheartened. I continued to send to the hospital for medicines, which I took three mouths longer. I was now so emaciated that my f'iends who came to see me said I would never get well. In this condition I continued until May, 1889, when one day an umbrella vendor called at my house, and, seeing how ill I was, said his wife had been cured of a serious illness by Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup. He spoke so earnestly of it that I deter- mined to try it. After taking the Syrup for ten days I felt in better spirits my food agreed with me, and from that tim- I gained strength daily. Perserving with it. I was soon able to return to my work as healthy and strong as ever. Since then I have been in the best of health. You are at liberty to publish the above facts, and I will gladly reply to any in- qu'riea. Yours truly (Signed), READ WELFARE, Ramsey, St. Mary's, Hunts, February, 18th, 1892." No brief comment cin do justice to this remarkable case. What the public needs to know and to remem- ber is this Mr Welfare's whole system was poisoned v by the products of a torpid and inactive digestion. t These had entered his blood, as Dr. Mitchell describes. The nervous system was disordered find lialf paralysed hence the faintness and falling fits. Rattlesnake poison kills by paralysing tha nerves which actuate the lunc., it kills by suffocation. Human poison, arising from indigestion and dyspep- sia, always operates in the same direction, causing asthma in its wjrse forme. In then attacks the hea.rt and kidnr-ys. causing the state of things Mr Welfare mention- Nothiug more noxious, or, in the end, surely fatal exists in any poisonous reptile. And yet people trifle with the disease! and doctors seem not to understand it. Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup cures by stimu- lating the kidneys, skin, and bowels, and toning the gastric g'ands. Who. then, is man's most deadly enemy? Careless and igmrant man himself. Use the remedy when the earliest symptoms appear.
