Colonial Secretary's Office,
AUGUST 31sT, 1877.
T-IS EXCELLENCY THE GOVERNOR
has been pleased to appoint
Randal Eden Webster, Esqr.,
Colonial Secretary,
To be (provisionally) a Member of Her Ma-
jesty's Council for these Islands.
By His Excellency's Command,
R. E. WEBSTER,
Colonial Secretary.

BERMUDA,

Proceedings of the Legislative
Council.
Friday, 31st August, 1877.-Pursuant to ad-
journment the House met.
Present,-
The Honorable William H. Gosling,
6" James H. Trimingham,
"' Eugenius Harvey,
4" Joseph H. Harvey,
9" James Tucker, Receiver General.
The Senior Member present took the Chair.
The House resumed in Committee the consider-
ation of the Resolve voting 700 17/9 for the re-
pairs and improvement of the Public Buildings and
other Public Works.
The Committee rose.
The Chairman reported the Resolve without
amendment.
The House resumed and adopted the Report.
The following Messages from His Excellency the
Governor :-
(No. 5.)
R. M. LAFFAN,
Brigadier General,
Governor and Commander-in-.Chief.
The Governor has the honor to inform the Hon-
orable the Legislative Council that since his
assumption of the Office of Governor of these
Islands his attention has been forcibly attracted to
several grave inconveniences which arise to the
Public Service, from the want of any sufficient
provision for the superintendance of Public Works.
The Governor finds that one branch of the Public
Works-that namely which is connected with the
maintenance of our Roads and Communications-
has been placed under the general supervision of a
Public Board called the Board of Roads-and that
the results of that measure have been found emi-
nently satisfactory. The Governor thinks there-
fore that the time has now arrived when the re-
maining Public Works of the Colony may with ad-
vantage be placed under the general supervision
and management of. the same Board-whose powers
may be enlarged and whose constitution may be
extended for that purpose.
The Governor has the honor to inform the Hon-
orable the Legislative Council that during a short
tour he has lately made among the British North
American Colonies he found that the Public
Works of those Colonies were in many instances
carried out under the general direction of Public
Boards similar in constitution to the Bermudian
Road Board and that many advantages were con-
sidered to .accrue from such supervision. The
Governor thinks therefore that a great benefit to
the interests of this Colony would follow the adop-
tion of a similar principle here-and he has accord-
ingly instructed Her Majesty's Attorney General to
prepare and submit to the Bonorable House of As-
sembly a Bill providing for enlarging the powers
and extending the Constitution of the present Board
of Roads and enabling it to undertake the general
supervision and management of all the Public
Works and Public Lands of the Colony in addition
to its present charge of Roads.
The Governor hopes that the Honorable Legisla-
tive Council will give its careful consideration to
this bill and that the result of its deliberations will
redound to the promotion of the welfare of the Co.
lony and the happiness of the people.
Mount Langton, August 29th, 1877.


(No. 6.)
R. M. LAFFAN,
Brigadier General,
Governor and Commander-in-Chief.
The Governor has the honor to communicate to
the Honorable the Legislative Council a despatch
numbered 28 from the Secretary of State for
the Colonies on the subject of the pecuniary provis-
ion made for Ministers of Religion.
Mount Langton, August 29th, 1877.

THEATRICALS AT PROSPECT.

On Tuesday last, as anticipated by us, The
Brigands" drew a full house, and were again as
successful in their efforts to please, if not more so,
than on the opening nights. Amongst the audi-
ence we noticed a number who were there for the
second and even third time, and such a surprising
fact would alone attest the excellence of an ama-
teur performance.
The uniform success which attended the piece
throughout, coupled with the earnest solicitations
of friendsyand admirers, warranted a repetition at
an early opportunity, and, in consequence, last
evening was appointed, when, as previously an-
nounced, the cast as on Tuesday the 28th ult., was
agaih reproduced, and elicited most hearty enco-
miums from all parts of the house-which was,
once again, a bumper.
In reiterating that the drama as well as the farce
were kept up with vigor and a correctness of dic-
tion, our foregone conclusion was happily sustain-
ed; and indeed we are induced to believe that the
business of stage prompter must have been almost
a sinecure, seeing how readily the cues were taken
up and how easily and gracefully the several inci-
dents developed themselves.
In the farce, Done on Both Sides," a store of
wit and humor was done full justice to, both by
actors and audience; and we were at a loss whe-
ther to bestow our admiration on the cool, reckless,
and voluble assumption of Mr. John Brownjohn,
the gentlemanly lover; the blundering tactics of
the henpecked husband, Mr. Whifes, who was evi-
dently driven to his wits' end in the endeavour to
preserve that sham respectability considered essen-
tial by manceuavring mammas of the present day to
secure an "eligible" husband for a darling daugh-
ter; or the victimised Mr. Phibbs, the accomplished
"vet-er-er-er-inary" surgeon, who had to succumb
to the illogical force of his despised relative, deliver
up, as well as serve up, his own haunch of venison,
with which he had hoped to secure a patron, and
more than all to suffer other indignities of a menial
character, under a most irascible temperament, a
clamorous appetite, and an overwhelming sense of
his own importance. The phases of character were
happily blended so as to form the most ludicrous
contrasts, and were successful as far as could be
judged from the pleasant, hearty laughter.
We shall be glad to receive such another treat at
an early opportunity from this talented Club; and
whilst penning this wish our fancy caught the
phantom sound of a similar desire from a sea of
upturned faces, on the like of which we remember
to have looked in the little Theatre at Prospect last
night, as the splendid Band, which had done good
service, were about to take up the parting strain of
" God Save the Queen."

We cannot close our references to these perform-

achieved by Mr. Campbell, the Bandmaster of the
46th, as to his lot fell the composing and arranging
the music &c., of the different songs and choruses in
the Drama, and which we need hardly say was ren-
dered by the String Band of the Regiment in their
usual splendid and brilliant style. The bursts of
applause which resounded from all parts of the
house testified how a delighted audience appreciat-
ed his labours.

On Friday last a man named Antonia do Silvia went
into the sea at Bailey's Bay, and getting beyond his
depth would have beeu drowned, although there were se-
veral persons standing near, but for the prompt assist-
ance rendered by Mr. Brownell North, who alone
promptly went out to him, without stopping to divest
himself of anything but his coat, not even removing
his watch from his vest pocket. When brought on
shore de Silvia did not show any signs of life; but
after being worked on for about ten minutes lie began
to breathe.-Com.


THE WAR IN TU1KEI..
There have been almost continuous fighting be-
tween the Turks and Russians, and the latter have
done better than they did at first. In Bulgaria the
contest has raged round the Schipka Pass of the
Balkan mountains. This Pass was not abandoned
by the Russians as the Turks reported it was. Its
abandonment may have been contemplated, and
when the Turks tried to take it, they found only a
small body of their enemy holding it. But the
natural defences of the place, and the stubborn re-
sistance they made, enabled the Russians to keep
their ground until reinforcements came. The at-
tack was by Suleiman Pasha's forces and was very
warmly and persistently maintained. Daily battles
for a week had been raging to obtain possession of
the hills and defiles which command and enter into
the Pass. The result is yet undecided, and the
fortunes of the contest have at different times been
with each adversary. The Turks gained some ad-
vantageous points, which were in turn retaken by
the Russians. They succeeded in flanking the po-
sitions of the latter, who thereupon tried and suc-
ceeded in pressing back the extending and overlap-
ping lines of the Moslem. At the last accounts
the Turks were holding some eminence they had
gained, from which the Russians had been unable
to dislodge them; while the latter, however were
reported to hold the Pass and to be receiving rein-
forcements. Suleiman is one of the ablest generals
of the Sultan and in Montenegro has become ac-
complished in mountain warfare. He and his army
came to Schipka fresh from a victorious campaign
against the Montenegrins. His army, it is sup-
posed, seeks to join Mehemit Ali and Osman
Pasha on the Danube side of the Balkans. To
do this they need not go through the Schipka
Pass, as other roads or passes commanded
by the Turks were open. Some purpose other than
the getting through must explain Suleiman's nu-
merous and so far futile efforts to drive the Rus-
sians out of the only pass in the Balkans they hold
in force. It is believed that a movement, in which
Mehemet Ali was to take part, and whose con-
sequences would have been more disastrous to
the Russians, was contemplated. If this be so, it
would seem to have miscarried. Mehemet Ali did
make something of a demonstration, but it lacked
vigour, and nothing came of it. Suleiman, all the
same keeps pegging away at his end of the Pass.
His losses must be immense, as he attacks an in-
trenched and protected enemy. The Turks aresaid
to be reinforced very heavily, and troops all the
time are going across the Danube to the Russians,
who were reported to be about to attack a third time
Osman Pasha's army at Plevna and Lovatz. The
Servians have resumed hostilities against Turkey,
and though they will act independently of Russia,
cannot help being of service to her.
In Armenia Mukhtar Pasha had also attacked
the Russian invaders, and a battle of some magni-
tude had been waged. Here, too, some advantage
had been gained by the Turk, who nevertheless
had been defeated or repulsed in the end, or in the
main object of his attack. The Russians, driven
from one point of vantage, had fallen back to ano-
ther, which it was of more importance for them to
hold, and had held it, repulsing the Turks with
great loss. In all of these encounters the courage
and pluck of both sides have been admirable. In
all of them the Turks have attacked, and though
not beaten back as the Russians were at Kars and
at Plevna, have been repulsed and held at bay. In
Armenia the Russians adopted the German order
of battle, and fought in open column. They gave
i up for the first time their faith or infatuation in
Masses of men moving in close and compact bodies.
The measurable success they have had may be
owing to this innovation of theirs, which they have
been so slow and so unwilling to adopt.

From the "Colonist" of Wednesday last.
ST. PAUL'S F. C. OF ENGLAND.

LAYING OF THE CORNER STONE.
On Monday afternoon a large number of persons
assembled upon the site of the proposed Free
Church of England, to witness the ceremony of
laying the Corner Stone of the new Building. The
assemblage embraced persons of all classes and
ranks, resident throughout the different parts of the
Islands.
At 5 o'clock precisely, the Rev. R. A. Bilkey, the
Incumbent of the Free Church in this Town, open-
ed the proceedings by requesting the spectators to
assist the Choir in singing the first Hymn upon the
programme of the day's proceedings. Hundreds of
Voices united in singing the precatory words of the
hymn, asking the Divine blessing upon the work.
The hymn ended, passages of Holy Scripture,
suitable to the occasion were read by the Rev. W.
C. Brown, pastor of the Methodist Church in this
Town: after which the Rev. K. F. Junor, pastor of
St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, Hamilton, of-
fered a prayer.
This finished the preliminary religious exercises.
SBy way of initiating the grand function of the
ceremony, the Rev. Mr. Bilkey said it was always
customary, on occasions of this kind, to deposit be-
neath the Corner Stone a bottle containing various
articles of interest, and called upon W. C. Hyland,
Esqr., to deposit the bottle.
Mr. Hyland before depositing the bottle stated
that it contained the following
INScRIPTION:-
St. Paul's, Free Church of England. Corner
Stone laid August 27, 1877, in the good Reign of
Queen Victoria, and the Governorship of Sir R. M.
Laffan. This Bottle, deposited beneath the Corner
Stone, contains the following documents, &c. : -A
brief history of the F. C. E. in Bermuda, with the
names of the Church Committee and Building Conm-


mittee, of the Contractors for the Building and De-
signer of the same. Also, a programme of this
day's proceedings. Also the Magazine of the F.
C. E. Also the Royal Gazette" and Bermuda
Colonist." Also coins of the Realm for the year 1876.
"GOD bless the Church and save the Queen.
"August 27, 1877."
Everything was now in readiness for the event
of the day, and John R. Swainson, Esqr., presented
the Rev. Mr Bilkey with a silver trowel, with
which to spread the mortar. The reverend gentle-
man proceeded with the necessary preliminaries-
the stone was got ready-plumb line and square
were applied and slowly the stone was deposited in
its bed. Mr. Bilkey pronounced it well and truly
laid in the name of the Father and of the Son and
of the Holy Ghost. The choir and audience unit-
ed in singing a hymn of Thanksgiving; after
which, Mr. Bilkey, standing on the newly laid
stone, addressed those present.
[We have not room for Rev. R. A. Bilkey's ad-
dress.]-Ed. R. G.,

At the conclusion of the address, a collection was
made on the spot amounting to the sum of 13 10/.
The ceremony was brought to a close by the
whole company singing God Save the Queen."

THE AQUARIUM.-The Aquarium has received
more than three hundred beautiful tropical fishes
and anemones. They are of every conceivable
shape and color, and include some rare kinds never
before seen in this city, if in fact, they were ever be-
fore taken from their native waters. By the return
of a special party sent to Bermuda the Aquarium
has thoroughly restocked all its tanks. The varie-
ties received are all in good condition. Among
them are fifty of the celebrated angel fishes, five
i four-eyed fishes, gray snappers, the Margate fish,
pink squirrel fishes, spotted hinds, cow pilots, sur-
geon fish and rare sun-flower anemones. There is
also a young frigate bird.-New York Evening Post,
Aug. 28.

THE COAL MINES.-In the Lehigh region the
workingmen have won a substantial victory, hav-
ing succeeded in obtaining an increase of wages.
The situation is quiet in the Susquehanna Valley,
but the miners there have not been so successful as
elsewhere.
The English Rifle Team had reached New York
and were in practice at Creedmoor. Sir Henry
Halford has, it seems, brought out 12 expert shots
so that some change may be made in the team. In
fact, the team has not really been selected, and the
following twelve will compete for places during
practice; Lieut.-Col. James Fenton, G. Grant Pe-
terkin, H. S. W. Evans, R. S. Greenhill, William

Engine, a Barnum's advertising car, one baggage car,
three coaches and a sleeper, when running at ordinary
speed broke through a culvert and all, with the excep-
tion of the sleeping car fell, into the river with a ter-
rible crash. The first coach telescoped the second,
and both these went half way through the third and
the three lay with their ends in the water. Twenty
bodies were recovered from the wreck and it is sup-
posed that several have floated down the stream
There were upwards of 100 wounded.
ADMIRAL SEMMES DEAD.
MOBILE, Ala., August 30.-Admiral Semmes died

Point Clear.
DEATH OF THE PROPHET.
Brigham Young died at his home in Salt Lake City
yesterday, in his seventy-seventh year. He has been
ill for weeks, and his death was not unexpected. It
falls with overwhelming suddenness, however, upon a
people who were not prepared for it, and almost be-
lieved that a miracle would be wrought in his behalf.
I Thus ends one of the most remarkable careers of the
nineteenth century.-New York Express, August 30.

LONDON, August 30, 1877.-A telegram from the
seat of war, received in Vienna, states that Suleiman
Pashalconsiders the taking of the Russian position at
Shipka Pass from the front hopeless, and will merely
construct fortified camps in the villages of Shipka and
Hainkoi and cross the Balkans through other passes
northward.
Pressing the Russians Closely.--Suleiman Pacha
telegraphs to Constantinople, under date of August 28,
as follows:-" Our intrenched line of investment is
only 150 paces from the enemy's fortifications. We
still hold the commanding Alikrid-Jebel heights.
The Russians are blockaded on three sides. Every
effort is being made to complete the blockade by cut-
ting them off from the road toGabrova.
Great Russian Losses.-" The Russian forces have
been cruelly decimated and they have retired to their
fortified positions. Cannonading and outpost en-
gagements are carried on intermittently."
The Russians secure in the Shipka Pass.-A des-
patch from Gorny Studen, dated yesterday afternoon,
says:-" After the severe fighting of Sunday the
Turks have refrained from renewing the attack on the
Russian positions in the Shipka Pass, and uu to this
morning only occasional trivial rifle fire between the
outposts has occurred. As a result of Sunday's fight-
ing, the Turkish advanced batteries somewhat menace
the Russian flanks. The Turks are constructing fresh
batteries in the Tunja Valley. The Russians have
been adequately reinforced, and there is nothing in
the present situation to alter my impression, already
expressed, that General Radetzky holds his position
safe."
The Men in Good Spirits.-A special despatch da.
ted Gorny Studen, August 28, says Genl. Nepokoits-
chitzkv. chief of the Russian staff, visited the Shipka


Pass to ascertain the condition of the troops, reports
that they are well supplied with provisions and very
determined. The Turks are getting wearied.
Unburied Corpses.-Several thousand unburied dead
cause an unbearable stench around the hill. Consid-
erable reinforcements arrived at Gabrova on Sunday.
The correspondent estimates the Russian garrison in
the Pass now at thirty battalions.
A Lull in the fighting.-Advices from the Russian
headquarters at Gorny Studen, dated August 28, say:
-" All is quiet, this morning. Our troops maintain
their position/. The Turks remain under cover be-
hind the neighboring heights, out of range of our bat-
teries. The total number wounded from August 21
to Augist 27 is 2,480, including 95 officers. The
number killed is unknown. Everything is quiet in
the direction of Plevna and Loftscha."

A BIG BATTLE EXPECTED AT PLEVNA.
LONDON, Aug. 30.-The Vienna correspondent of
the Times, remarking on the recent replacement of
Mahmoud Damad Pasha at the War Office, where
he has been supreme since the fall of Redif Pasha,
says: It is believed at Constantinople that Mah-
moud Damad'is responsible for ordering the waste-
ful attack on the Shipka Pass. The heavy losses
there incurred, without a corresponding success,
seem to have made the Sultan accessible to the ad-
vice of those who represented to him the forcing of
the Shipka Pass as a great fault."
LONDON, Aug. 30.-A Paris dispatch to the
Times says: "Advices from Athens state that two
thousand Italians have offered their services to the
Greek army. In Crete the agitation continues.
Five hundred Christian families have asked per-
mission to leave the island, but the Governor has
refused their request."
PARIS, Aug. 30.-A decree of President McMa-
hon has been issued conferring a gold medal upon
Lieutenant Fozier, commander of the American
steamer Pix, forsaving the French ship Peabody, in
the Mississippi river.

A YOUNG ALLIGATOR of some three feet in length
was ,killed in Smiths Pond on Wednesday last by an
Officer of the 46th Regiment, out in pursuit of game.
When first observed by the Gentleman the animal was
moving leisurely along in the water and, not knowing
what it was he shouted, but not being noticed he fired
at it, which only provoked the animal to come towards
him, when he again fired, and seeing that the shot had
taken effect, he sent his dog into the water, which soon
brought the animal to the shore.
Tlis is the first Alligator that has ever been seen
alive in Bermuda. There is a report that not long
since the Captain of a vessel who lives in that neigh-
bourhood, and who trades with the West Indies, brought
a young alligator home with him, which escaped from
the place where it was confined, and was not seen again
till it was shot as above stated.
The animal supposed to be of the Fox kind, which
committed such extensive depredations in the poultry
yards of Paget and Devonshire some 4 of 5 months since
has again made its appearance, this time in Smiths,
where it has destroyed some valuable poultry-quite in
the Fox style. On one occasion a dog was sent after it
but soon returned howling and crippled, having had a
fight with the animal and was driven back.

(No. 5.)
ROBERT MICHAEL LAFFAN,
Brigadier General,
Governor and Commander-in-Ohief.
The Governor refers to the consideration of the
Honorable House of Assembly the accompanying
letter from the late Receiver General setting forth
that through old age and through impaired health
.-attributed in part to a long and faithful service
of 38 years-Mr. Fozard, the Revenue Officer of

Mount Langton, August 28th, 1877.


(No. 6.)
ROBERT MICHAEL LAFFAN,
Brigadier General,
Governor and Commander-in-Chief.
The Governor has the honor to inform the Hon-
orable House of Assembly that since his assump-
tion of the Office of Governor of these Islands his
attention has been forcibly attracted to several
grave inconveniences which arise to the Public
service from the want of any sufficient provision
for the superintendence of Public Works.
The Governor finds that one branch of the Pub-
lie Works-that namely which is connected with
the maintenance of our Roads and communications
has been placed under the general supervision of
of a Public Board called the Board of Roads-and
that the results of that measure have been emin-
ently satisfactory. The Governor thinks therefore
that the time has now arrived when the remaining
Public Works of the Colony may with advantage
be placed under the general supervision and man-
agement of the same Board-whose powers may be
enlarged and whose constitution may be extended
for that purpose.
The Governor has the honor to inform the Hon-
orable House of Assembly that during a short
tour he has lately made among the British North
American Colonies he found that the Public Works
of those colonies were in many instances carried
out under the general direction of Public Boards
similar in constitution to the Bermudian Road Board
and that many advantages were considered to ac-
crue therefrom. The Governor thinks therefore
that a great benefit to the interests of this Colony
would follow the adoption of a similar principle here
-hand he has accordingly instructed Her Majesty's
Attorney General to prepare and submit to the
Honorable, House of Assembly a Bill providing
for enlarging the powers and extending the con-
stitution of the present Board of Roads and en-
abling it to undertake the general supervision and
management of all the Public Works and Public
Lands of the Colony in addition to its present


charge of Roads. The Governor hopes that the
Honorable House of Assembly will give its
careful consideration to this Bill and that the
result of its deliberations will redound to the pro-
motion of the welfare of the Colony and the happi-


I


To the Editor of th e Royal Gazette, Bermuda.
LOnDOn, 1st August, 1877.
Sm,-I beg to bring before my countrymen the
great importance of uniting together for the pur.


pose of buying a steamer, adapted for mais, pas.
sengers and cargo, in the New York trade. The
present state of things must lead to ruin, for every
subsidy and grant paid from the Treasury, together
with the aggregate sums realized for passage mo-
ney and freights, constitute a heavy drain from so
small a Colony as Bermuda.
England is the mother of her Colonies, and the
Home Government ought not to neglect the needy
wants of her children in this respect, for when the
Colonists are enriched the imports from the United
Kingdom must increase, and their prosperity must
contribute towards the general prosperity. Why
should the Home Government subsidize the Cunard
Line and the Executive tie the hands of the Legis-
lature by subsidizing steamers which belong to
New York and Quebec, &c., when every encourage-
ment should be given to the formation of a local
company to do all this work; and it could be done
cheaper if this was done; the mails can be run cheap-
er and quicker via New York: and is it no advan-
tage to have cheap postage with this Colony ? i
I have had to do with steam for the last 15 years,
and now have a joint superintendence of a fleet of
17 steamers; hence I can speak with some autho-
rity, while at the same'time I may be understood
when I say that I have had no connection with
Bermuda for many years, and from a patriotic mo-
tive solely I would urge those who value a steam
connection with the United Kingdom via New York
to join in this work of forming a company. It

" Eau" of Dr. Holtz for'
HAIR DYE.
r s118 WATER is of an entirely vegetable
Composition, and its use is quite inof-
fensive.
Thanks to this peculiar quality which gives it
no rival, DR. IlOLTZ's Hair Dye has not the
disadvantage of the other preparations which
give to the hair an unnatural vulgarly color.
Guided by his medical knowledge and his
great chemical experiences, Da. HOLTZ has
Succeeded in the discovery of plants, which give
the richest balsamic dyeing and curative essen-
ces, and it is by this study that he succeeded to
compound a dye which may be styled as the

would be well for some of the shareholders to be in
New York, for then they would have a double in-
terest in looking after the steamers. When this
Company is formed they should endeavour to obtain
assistance from the Executive through the Legisla-
ture, by a unanimous vote, of a grant running, say
ten years; and as this money will remain in their
own pockets, at the expiration of this term they
could run without any subsidy. Their first steam-
er should be full powered and in every sense a
first class vessel, specially designed to suit the
trade-to cost about 24,000.
It would be very interesting if some Honorable
member of the Legislature would move for a return
to be made of the total loss to the Colony through
the alienation of all this money. The Intercolonial
Mail Steamers in Australia were subsidized by the
Colonial Government, and railways in Canada have
been backed and promoted by the home Govern-
ment. Why not Bermuda ? Are the Bermudians
to be forsaken and left to their own resources in
war time, and to be put to a system of extortion,
because in a time of peace they did not look out for -
themselves ? Let the Bermudians, white and black,
all arise and unite with accord to help themselves,
and every barrier will be pulled down.
Yours faithfully,
J. H. WILLIAMS.
P. S.-When the crop time is over profitable
employment could be found from New York to Bar-
bados and Demerara if they had a surplus steamer
built.

RIGOLLOT'S
MUSTARD PAPER
FOR SINAPISMS. OR PLASTERS,
Adopted by the Hospitals of Pars, Field
and Military Hospital, by the
English Royal Navy and
the French National
Navy, &c.
To retain the whole of the properties of Mustard
in its powdered state and to obtain easily in a few 1
moments a decided result with the smallest possible I
quantity of the remedy, are the problems which M. '
Rigollot has solved in the most conclusive and sa-
tisfactory manner. Rigollot's Sinapism in leaves
will, therefore, be found in every family, for the
prompt action obtained by it in many cases of emer-
gency renders it an invaluable remedy for various
disorders.
(Signed) A. BOUCHARDAT
Annuaireth6rapentique ann6e 1868, p. 204.

IMPORTANT NOTICE.
The precious quality of Rigollot's Paper in cases
ofgreat gravity, is that of acting very rapidly. It is
in important Healing Agent. To children, weak,
and nervous persons, I strongly recommend the fol-
lowing method of graduating the action of the plas-
ter according to the will or condition of the patients
viz., to put one, two, or three leaves of wet blot-
ing paper between the Sinapism and the skin.
An old piece of fine linen may also be employed
instead of blotting paper.
Beware of Imitations.
