Remember You Have Children of
Your Own.

In your path through life each day you
will meet upon the way,
Fellow mortals upon whom this world
doth frown,; ,
Who from poverty or crime have fallen
in their time,
Or by circumstances crushed and
stricken down.
Young men with blighted names, who
once had noble aims,
Young girls with care and sorrow on
their brow,*
Whom a kindly word might save, from a
dark and dreary grave,
While a cruel word might drive to
madness now ;
They were once to some one dear, so
don't pass them with a sneer,
But speak a kindly word in cheering
tone,
You know not what's in store for the
lov'd ones you adore,
Remember you have children of your
own.


A poor girl in the street with as much
respect should meet
A s the millionaire who in his carriage
rolls,
And, the honest laboring man wirh his
strong and horny hand
They too have hearts and feelings,
yes, and souls ;
And the wretched drunkard too, who
perhaps was once like you
Respected and belov'd by one and all,
Though no doubt from care and strife
Or,some sorrow of his life, has fallen,
but not quite beyond recall ;
And the poor outcast forlorn do not
pass by with scorn,
Blat speak a kindly word with gentle
tone,
And some assistance give if a happy life
you'd live, i
Remember you hlve children of your
Own.

perhaps gr"im want may hur
To stemtl the bread their darling chil-
dren crave ;
Be not the one to blame, you yourself
might do the same
With starvation at your door you'd dare
the grave,
Their family is as dear to them as any
here,
Tho' their clothes may be all ragged
too, and old,
Dejected and forlorn, yet still their hearts
are warm,
Tho' they lack the rich man's cheerful
home and gold ;
They are all to some one dear, so don't
pass them with a sneer,
But speak a kindly word in cheering
tone,
You know not what's in store for the
lov'd ones you adore,
Remember you have children of your
own.

THE GREATEST MARKSMAN YET.

In Shannon county, Mo, lives a man
who is >a greater adept with the rifle,
and has performed more real and ,i.ar-
velous feats of marksmanship than even
those with which Dr. Carver has of late
been astonishing the world. The name
of this wonderful handler of the rifle is
Adam Goldie.
Some of the feats which he has per-
formed seem impossible. He has broken
299 glass balls out of 300 in twelve
minutes with a forty-four caliber Win-
chester rifle. He can break 100f glass
balls five times out of six, without a,
miss, in three minutes. These feats are
unparalleled, and surpass Dr. Carver's
wonderful shooting. A seemfigly in-
credible feat that he performs is as
follows : A soda-water bottle is thrown
into the air in a certain manner, and be-
fore it falls Goldie will send A bullet
down the neck of a bottle and make a
hole in the bottom. There are-other
feats that he performs with bottles.
At fifty yards' distance a bottle is plac-
ed on a forked tong, and Goldie will
send six bullets in rapid succession
down the neck and through the bottom,
only perforating the latter in one place.
At long distances this marvelous
marksman performs just as marvelous
feats.
At 1,000 yards he will hit the center
of the bull's-eye, and then send six bul-
lets, one after the other, hitting the
very indent made by the first. A potato
thrown in the air Goldie perforates with
six bullet-holes before it reaches the
ground. Perhaps the most astonishing
feat is his breaking two balls at once.
This is done in the following manner :
Two balls are thrown crosswise, and as
they pass each other on their course,


with quick, unerring aim and lightning
like rapidity, E.ioldie will speed a bullet
through both.
Some five years ago Goldie left his
native country of Shannon. where he
was engaged in cattle raisi.g. for North
western Texas, vira he passed _two
years, and there one of the most excit-
ing incidents of his career happened.
His fame as a marksman am gg the
Texans soonTbecame notorioe In the
vicinity of Goldie's ranche lived one
William Darrell, or, as he was more
familiarly termed, Bloody Bill. This
Bloody Bill was a noted ruffian and des-
perado, a reckless dare-devil. His feats
in marksmanship were likewise astound-
ing, and probably no man in the Lone
Star State excelled him in handling 'the
rifle. Bloody Bill had been engaged
in many deeds, of daring, and was near-
ly always mixed up in some row or
squabble. He had I1ready killed three
men, and his numerous acts of ruffian-
ism had made him the terror of the
frontier. Few cared to cross; his path,
as his dangerous character and dexteri-
ty with a rifle were well known. Gol-
die had met 'Bill on several occasions,
but had never been involved in any dif-
ficulty with him. Knowing his tubur-
lent disposition, he always sought to
avoid him. On one Sunday, however,
Goldie was sitting in company with a
score of Texans, who was spending a
convivial hour in a carouse, when Hill
rode up and joined the party. Of late
he had become quite jealous of Goldie's
notoriety as a marksman, andThad. fre-
quently spoken disparagingly of the
latter. For some time the party passed
the time convivially enough, without
anything happening to mar the harmony
of the sociability. At last the Texans
began to relate some of their reminis-
cences, and Goldie commenced relating,
an incident that had occurred to
him. Bill, who had drunk heavily of
the whisky, and becaine rather ril._odv,.

at -T1e siiiu ine itri,, a alloww at him.l
All was instantly in commotion. The
whoAe party were on' tlr-ir feet, and re-
volvers were drawn. (,bldie demanded
satisfaction for the "insult, and Bloody
Bill, with a scornful laugh, suggested
that they had better make it a trial of
their respective skill with the rifle. The
idea was caught up by the Texans, and
after a short consultation they decided
that a due) should be fought, but, in
consequence of the extraordinary skill
of the parties, at a long. distance. On
the prairie, about Iwo miles distant,
grew two post oak trees. They were
420 yards apart, and were the only trees
on the spot.... All .around was open,
timlrles-~, iraiirie. It was decided that
ioldlie and I'.ill s should both take their
rifles anud ePh take up a position be
hini1 the respective trees, and then
blaze awa%'- at e:ch other. The Texans
hoped by the(.e meniias to prevent a fatal
termination to the duel.. The prelimin-
aries being settled, the whole party
mounted their horses and rode out on
the prairie to the selected spot. Gol-
die took up his position behind one of
the trees and Bill ensconsed himself be-
hind the other. Thb remrnainiing party
of the crowd then rode to a slight un-
dulating eminence to the right, where
they were to remain, as spectators. One
of them was to give-the signal for the
beginning of the combat by firing his
rifle in the air, and the report was to be
the signal to the duulist' to begin with
their bloody work. Goldie waited anxi-
ouslv the detonation of the rifle, which
suddenly sound& n the air.
Then commendNhe duel at the long-
gest range ever recorded. Goldie ad-
vanced from behind "f.k*e in a kneel-
ing posture, when whiz! his somebrero
was perforated by a ball from Bloody
Bill's rifle. Quick as lightning he drop-
ped at full length on the ground in time
to escape the 'two other bullets which
came in rapid succession. 11 e lay still,
brought his rifle into position, as he
was stretched upon the ground, and
then remained immovable. Presently
he saw a diminutive figure which he
knew to be Bill (who was nearly one
inch taller than Goldie) advancing cau-
tiously from the shelter of the tree.
Quickly taking aim he fired twice in
succession and then retired behind the
sheltering trunk. One of the bullets he
afterwards discovered lhad passed thro'
the lobe of Bill's left ear. There was
a cessation now of firin.. for some time,
when Goldie espied his opponent's head
and shoulder, exposed. Quick aslight-
ning his rifle was at his shoulder, and the


detonating report was heard. Bloody
Bill's hat was carried away by the bullet.
Goldie now rather incautiously advanced
from his shelter and became a target


for six balls in rapid rotation, one of
which made a hole in his coat sleeve
and another through his pants. IHe
beat a hasty retreat. The duelists re-
mained gazing at the distant trees, each
watching tor the indistinct form which
re|>rsent:.1 hisa1\er->:-irv. Each peer,-d
c:-u;Iiti,,usly f',ro0m 1 i,-Ihd tI 1 e ,ree, enilea-
voring to get siht of the other. Gol-
die at last saw Bill again advance, and
the former stepped rapidly to the front
amnd quickly brought his rifle into po-
sition. Almost simultaneously the clear,
sharp report of two rifles rang on the
air and both men fell. He had been
wounded in the left shoulder. Present-
ly he was joined by the Texans who had
been witnesses of this most exciting
duel. They had already ridden over to
Bloody Bill and found him dead. A
bullet had penetrated his temple.

HAMILTON, OCTOBER 24, 1883.

NEW FIELD PROSPECTS.
Altho' the Public Garden Bill was
non-plussed, and by only a one man
majority, in the council there is for-
tunately a prospect that the expcri-
mental scheme of growing fruits in
Bermuda, independent and despite of
all opposition will, through the efforts
of' a few enterprising individuals,
eventually develop itself into a practi-
cal reality. Mr. George 0. Whitney,
the original promoter of many
schemes, who has for some time agi-
tated and ventilated the scheme of
fruit culture in Bermuda, has himself
gone somewhat largely into that of
strawberries. Last year he imported
a few thousand plants which were all
readily disposed of. This seziai), he
expects from the States and Nova
Scotia some 40,000 plants, a portion
of which he intends planting on
.grounds being now prepared for the
purpose. The remainder, besides
those already ordered, will be dispos-
ed of to any who may require them,
and at very moderate prices, so as to
promote and encourage strawberry
culture in these islands.
Another branch of fruit growing,
that of the grape, is shortly to be es-
tablished, by a Mr. Hart, who on his
own responsibility and highly recom-
mended by Prize Medals, comes from
the world-renowned Nurseries of Ro-
chester, N. Y. He has visited Ber-
muda on two former occasions, and
from what he coull see and learn of
the -nature oi the soils, climate and
physical aspect of the country he
eventually arrived at the conclusion
that grapes could be successfully
grown, yielding a large percentage of
profit, as an article of export. Mr.
Hart will not likely confine his atten-
tion solely to the growing of the
grape, but may sooner than expected
start a general fruit nursery and
vegetable garden; and if so, the in-
tended public garden aided and su-
perintended by State aiil and State
officials, will in this manner be to a
certain extent substituted. Be this
s it may, we think that Mr. Hart,
any other similarly enterprising
hose efforts are likely to pro-
neral benefit is full entitled
aid, and public encourage--
SPerchance some other party
ep forward and stnrt a niir'-c'y
11al 1Y. sorts of fruits and ornamental
tree t 1at can be grown in Bermuda,
with',' air profit to the producer.
Av' t r source, the want of which
is much lt and which would without
doubt yiel e dividends, would be
0,a public table garden. As a
matter of convenience it should be lo-
cated iu he vicinity of Hamilton, be-
ing neaw the center and from which
r6ads diverge in every direction to
every art of Bermuda. Why cannot
veget bles be grown here sufficient to
meet /a11 demands during the whole
yea,? It seems strange indeed that
su# a garden as Bermuda is repro-
se( ted to be, should at certain seasons
hye confronted with vegetables, such as
onions, cabbage, beets, melons, etc.,
itnported from the States. A pro-
f ssional gardener with a southern-
chime experience would be the proper
person to test and verify the question.
If the lands of Bermuda can be made
to yield more, in greater variety, with
safe aad sufficient profits, it signifies
more money, more food, more com-
fort, and more independence to the
fruit and root-growers, as well as to
the consumer. Bermuda imports too
ninmuch, "av there's the rub'-and many
there are who are suffering this season
from its effects -as well as from the
financial failure'of the crops of last
season.

Correspondence
SFor the New Era.
THE NEW LINE OF STEAMERS.
The GAZETTE of yesterday publishes
an article "by request" on the subject
of the benefits likely to accrue to our


people by the establishment of this new
line of steamers. I feel quite sure that
all that is said in the communication
wi 1 be indorsed by the NEw ERA. The
writer in the GAZETTe says that the pre-
sent is the greatest 'opportunity that has
ever been presented to Bermuda to se-
cure to her people a double market for
their agricultural products. If every
citizen on the Island had been asked
separately what he most desired on this
subject scarcely' one would have made
the arrangement so complete as it now
is. Some two years ago every paper on
the Island was teeming with communi-
cations urging the government to make
every sacrifice to secure to the farmers
more than one market for their produce.
At that time some favored the Ame-
rican and some the Elclh markets.;
now muot happily we have both of these
mni'kets tit oir disposal. "Will our peo-
]le allow the r.pipi tmity to pass with-
f

ing to themselves the untold advantages
which the establishment of this new
line of steamers-promises. As the wri-
ter for the GAZETTE sayS arrangements
have already been made with the great
Railroad Lines connecting New Port
News with the large cities of the Interi-
or, to transport produce shipped by the
" Union Line" at almost nominal rates.
The central position of New Port
News will grive every advantage which
the American markets can afford to
shippers of produce, and the nominal,
Railroad freight from the ship land-
ing to the interior cities will give us
the full benefits of the best part of the
American market. On the other hnd
if we ship to England Liverpool is a
better market for our produce than
London. It cannot reasonably be said
that little Permuda makes too many
potatoes and onions for the world.
The trouble is not abqut the quantity
made here but about finding markets,
or rather about opening markets. These
markets exist and many towns and
cities both in England and America
would be glad to get our produce if
they could. If therefore we would cease
to war with each other on the question
of over production, "planting too much
,onion seed" and pnite hand and heart
in opening up new markets for our pro-
duce we would soon find that large crops
only made us the richer. The people
then could not only have one steamer
but many steamers of their own. Most
of the resources which once gave to
Bermuda her prosperity are now lost.
The conveying trade and ship building
now belong to her past history. If she
can reap nothing from her agricultural
interest she will wind up in bankruptcy.
All that she has left to her now is her
farming interest. Every vote therefore
which is cast for an Assemblyman here-
after should be turned over and over
arain before it is deposited in the bal-
lot box in order to satisfy the voter
that he is securing to himself a repre-
sentative who will make the farming
interest of the Island his first consider-
ation. In Bermuda taere is seldom a
crop failure. The failure is in the mar-
ket not in the soil, or the seasons, or the
climate. The policy of subsidy to
steam navigation has left Bermudian
Barks and Brigs to rot upon the beach
and has made her skillful seamen toi-
lers in the potato and onion fields. The
old state of things can never be restored.
The famous seamen of olden times are
dying off and few new ones are being
trained to fill their places. It is now
every man to the field. Agriculture
is the last hope of Bermuda ; and this
hope must fail her without a market for
the products of her laud. Is not this
an occasion then when every farmer
should appeal to the representative
from his parish to meet the issues of
the hour and to leave nothing undone
as far as the government can act to se-
cure to our people the additional mar-
kets for our produce which this new
line of steamers seem to pronmi.v. "If

THE EXHUMED "EGG" AND 1IHE
"DELUGE."
MR. EDITOR, -Two writers give us, in
your last issue, the benefit of their co-
gitations on this remarkable egg. One
writes carefully on the facts. He has
subjected the article to microscopic and
chemical examination, and pronounces
it to be an EGa. The other seems to
have tried a further test, and after a
very short period of INCUBATION he has
hatched a chicken. Hear it peep!
"Accepting the story of the deluge to
be true, Bermuda is under 6,000 years
old, but as it is hardly probable that it'
could be formed and brought to its pre-
sent shape in this short period of time,
we must either carry the deluge further
back, or what is more in accordance
with reason and the teaching of Geolo-
gical research, do away with it al-
together."
Now sir, we are all agreed to resent
'the imputation, that this Bermuda of
ours is "under 6,000 years old." Some
of us at least think, from evidences pre-
sented, that it is all of that, if not more.
But while believing this, when the choice
is presented between this "peep," and


the "sure word of prophecy," we can
scarcely feel ourselves authorized to de-
cide against the latter wiithout, further
warrant. In reading the concluding
sentence of this article signed "D," one
is perplexed as to which of two conclu-
sions one should adopt. Has "D" ever
READ to any extent on the scientific and
biblical phases of this question of the
Deluge ; or, having read does he inten-
tionally hide certain facts, lest their ad-
mission should wealkn the force of his
little blow at the Bible ? One or other
of these conclusions seems to be inevi-
table, after reading the sentence quoted.
But surely no student along the line of
research in question, can be ignorant of
the fact, that amongst Christian scien-
tists, there are few who now hold to the
theory of an universal deluge, in the sense
that that event submerged the lii:;hest
point of the Himalayas in India and of
the Rocky Mountains in America, equal-
ly with the regions around Ararat. If
the reason for the Deluge was the sin
of man (and God never goes beyond the
REASON for a'thing in any of his doings)
then we cmnn luie that the flood was
universal, ontyi-iasinuch as 'it effected
the destruction of the hiimiia race that
THEN EXISTED, tile family of Noah excep-


ted. This opinion is corroborated by
the evidence afforded by the study of
the phenomena of nature. It sweeps
out of existence every objection that
astronomy, geology or zoology has ever
brought against the Mosaic record. IT
IS IN PERFECT H.I:110NY' WITH EVERY WORD
OF THE BIBLE ON THIS SUBJECT, if we allow
the Bible to ivri-NIii f-' ITSELF. And it
presents, what is every year becoming
more and more evident to all close and
honest thinkers, that between the book
of God IN NATURE, and the book of God
in the Bible, each properly understood,
there is absolute and eternal harmony.
And further. Mr. Editor, even the force
of the blow dealt to the Ark by this fos-
silized egg, would he somewhat soften-
ed, if it should turn out to be true, that
Bermuda had about as much to do.with
the Noachian deluge as it had with that
similar phenomenon which occurred in
the Straits of Sunda, on that fearful night
of the 26th August last.
The slip-shod manner in which this
matter is dealt with by "D" (a fair sam-
ple of a host of other writings and wri-
ters on this and kindred topics) may
answer in the stead of argument where
ARGUMENT is not desired, or would not
be received ; but sincere and accurate
thinkers will ie(-\er htwiml.o., d upon by
such tactics. The animus of the quota-
tion given, is plainly, to carry, not the
"4(luJi0 but the BIBLE furtherr back"
or to d( away with it altogether." If
the seventh chapter of Genesis is not
true, Christ himself is an impostor, and
the Apostles are false witnesses, for they
have placed their IMPRIMATUR upon that
chapter. But apart from this view of
the subject, perhaps "D" would show us
that the teaching of Geological re-
search" requires us to discard the story
of the Deluge. No doubt he is quite
familiar with this class of subjects. He
talks glibly about this matter. With a
waive of the hand, almost sublime in
the exhibition of conscious strength
which' it gives, he has relegated the
Deluge to-- nowhere. Perhaps now
he would just help us a little, with Geo-
logical data and argument, of a trifle
more weight than this fossilized egg,
disproving the Flood. When he has
done this--with your kind permission,
Mr. Editor-I may wish to say some-
thing more.
FACT.
For the New Lra.
Two writers-one in the columns of
the NEw ERu, and one in those of the
COLONIST-have shown the presumption
and the folly of claiming the assistance
of the Legislature, in the management
and the support of the Church of Eng-
land in Bermuda, and have shown pret-
ty conclusively that this leaning upon
State recognition and support is a sign
of weakness.
There is another view to be taken of
the matter, and that is, the want of faith
--not so miuchl in thlini Divine, as hu-

The Clergy are distrustful of the people,

THE EA, ITHQUAKE.
On Saturday, Bermudians were shak-
en from their usual chronic state of co-
ma, by a genuine earthquake ; houses
shook, crockery ratt.l-e and fearful ones
trembled. It was to many persons a


new experience, for no shock of any mo-
ment has been felt in Bermuda for over
20 years. The shock *vas severe, and
no doubt had it been a little harder, or
a little longer, much damage would
heve been done to our houses. Situa-
ted as we are upon the summit of a sub-
marine mountain, itself probably of vol-
canic origin, with sides dropping almost
perpendicularly to a sheer depth of from
three to four miles to the bottom of the
ocean, an earthquake is no joke, but a
rather unpleasant reminder that some
day a good shake, a strong shake, and a
shake all together and without either
ecclesiastical benediction or apostolical
consecration, we shall all without let or
hindrance, in one common burial ground
find a watery grave. Such an event
would forever settle the Bermuda buri-
al question. But the shock is over, and
seated on our rocky hillsides we smile
at the vain effort of old mother Earth
to shake us from our perch.
Earthquakes are the result of the
most stupendous forces, for they are,
pretty generally conceded to be caused
by the efforts to escape of pent up gas-
es, having their origin in the mighty
fires which are supposed ever to rage
in the bosom of our Earth. From a
gaseous, to a molten mass, gradually
cooling on its surface, our Earth has ac-
quired its present form and appearance,
a fit abode for our higher intelligence,
but deep seated in the bowels of the
earth, the fires yet rage, and of these
we have constant reminders, in those
safety valves of Nature, volcanos; but
earthquakes also let .us feel our little-
ness, and how frail our strength and will
are, compared to the mighty forces of
Nature. D.

W- As will be seen by advertise-
ment in the NEW ERA, Mr. A. J. Rich-
ardson has leased the Globe Hotel of
St. Georges, which he has thoroughly
repaired and replenished, rendering it
a most comfortable, convenient and
commodious place for either transient
or permanent guests. Everything is
so admirably arranged and the busi-
ness of the house conducted in such
a style as to suit the most fastidious
taste. Those visiting St. Georges
would do well to call and test for
themselves the merits of this excel-
lent Hotel.
&- About 10-30 p. m. on the even-
ing of Monday last, a mariner belong-
ing to the British Bark Osseo," ran
past Policeman George (who was on
patrol) at a rapid rate, to the Police
Station, shouting Police! and report-
ed to Policeman William Postle-
thwaite, who was doing station duty,
that the chief Mate had drawn a re-
volver on him. Postlethwait and
George went with the man to the
Barque and found the mate bleeding
profusely from a stab over the left
kidney. The constables immediately
eent for Dr. (Butterfied who soon ar-
rived and sewed up the wound. The
Mate informed the coustables that
the mariner, a Russian, had stabbed
him; so they at once committed the
sailor to prison. Up to the present
the mate ig no worse.
.i*@- The annual Pic-Nic of the
Wesley Church Sabbath School and
congregation was held yesterday at
Ports Island, which was placed at
their service for this purpose by Cap-
tain Barnardiston, Supt. of the Dock
Yard. A large number repaired to
the Island via the steamer Moondyne
and the yacht Minerva, where a most
enjoyable day was spent in the usual
sports of such occasions. It is com-
puted that about 150 scholars and
300 others were in attendance. There
was an abundance and variety of ex-
cellent refreshments for every one
present, among whom were a num-
her of guests. At 5 p. m. the com-
pany embarked for home where they
safely arrived; all feeling that this
had been one of the most enjoyable
sociable entertainments they had ever
had.
j@ia A few minutes after one o'clock
in the afternoon of Saturday last a
comparatively slight earthquake of
ab6ut ten s c )nds duration was
generally felt throughout Bermuda.
The vibrations resembled those of the
long heavy rumbling of distant thun-
der. In some parts of the Islands it
was mort distinctly felt than at others,
but besides the rattling of household
furniture and utensils, the knocking
down of pieces of olI, plaster from
-.ii.i a wa h ncl, caauie, "m the
Trigliteiitig of a number of the inha-
bitants, nothing of a serious nature,
so far as we can learn, has occurred.
About 4 years ago a slight shock
of earthquake was felt in parts of
these Islands, more particularly at
St. Georges; and about 25 years ago
a much heavier shock than the pre-
sent one, and continuing some 3 or 4
minutes was also experienced. Com-
pared with the other countries, even
the United States and Canada, earth-
quakes are rare and feeble phenomena
in Bermuda: and on this account
when a shock" occurs it effects quite
a sensation among the people, besides
a multfarious variety of descriptions,
personally, many of them of an ima-
ginatively exaggerated character. Ber-
muda is somewhat out of the natural
line of earthquakes, and therefore,
although a slight shock may occasion-
ally occur, there is a chance of its
safety, at least, so long as it "keeps
its head above water."

TERRIBLY FA TAL EARTHQUAKE
IN ASIA MINOR.
Constantinople, Oct. 17.-It is repor-
ted that much damage to property and
great loss of life have been caused by
earthquakes, on the peninsula between
Chesma, in Asia Minor, opposite the
Island of Chios, and Vouria, on the
southern coast of the Gulf of Smvrna.
All the villages in that region have been
destroyed, and it is believed that up-
ward of 1,000 persons have perished.
The survivors of the disaster are suf-
fering fearful privations and a complete
panic prevails among them.
Most of the houses collapsed at the
first shock, burying their inmates. The
people who escaped.became panic-strick-
en and sought the fields, where many
are still huddled together in a starving
condition and suffering from cold. Help
for the stricken people is going forward
from Smyrna. The Porte has issued
a notice stating that 20,000 persons are
homeless and pleading for immediate
assistance. A Government Commission
will start as soon as possible to aid the
local officials. The report that 1,0p00
persons perished is confirmed.
London, Oct. 18.-The STANDARD'S
dispatch from Constantinople reports
that the shocks completely destroyed six
villages and seriously damaged many
others. It is believed that more than
1,000 persons perished.
Panama, Oct. 16.- -A Santa Marta
paper of Sept. 19 reports that a num-
ber of shocks of earthquake had been
felt in thai city and its vicinity, and
that the sun had presented an ap-
pearance, which had alarmed the
populace. It appears that at the
time when the earthquake were occur-
ring in Java, noises where heard in the
earth in many parts of Columbia and
Ecuador, and slight shocks of earth-
quake were felt in many places. The
sky presented an unusual appearance,
and a volcano is said to have become
active in Cauca, which has been dor-
mant since the conquest, and, it may
be, for long prior to that epoch.
A despatch from St. Petersburg states that
owing to the impression that has been pro-
duced by statements made by cor respondents

mond, Wesleyan minister, among the
congregation, most courteously invit-
ed him to read the Lessons. The
offer, though most respectfully declin-
ed, has created a most excellent im-
pression in the neighborhood. A. si-
milar invitation was made to a
Wesleyan minister at a recent service
in St. John's Church, Hightown,
Cheetham and was accepted.-WES-
LEYAN, Sept. 28, 1883.
On a recent Sanday morning the
Bishop of Liverpool preached in the
Parish Church at Moulin Perthshire.


Dr. Ryle wore no gown, but entered
the Pulpit in the ordinary walking
dress of a bishop. He conducted
the whole service after the Presby-
terian manner.-IBID.

A Derangement of the

Liver
THE CAUSE OF DISEASE IN THE,

SIW'tIll1 l, KIDNEt S

And N--ervous System.
-0 -
Below will be found a brief Sum-
mary of a Lecture upon the Liver, delivered
before the Eclectic College of Medicine by

i.J, H UMYlK.

r HE LIVER -has 'lean known as the
great ,BLOOD-M AKI.:Ri aild BiOO-
PURIFImR of the Cirnulhat ion. From its
'size a ii spongy structure, it plays a most
niporiantii pIn in the animal economy as
reg 'ardls assilnilation anid1 niuritioln. Food
take ini theli mouth ;ail acted titinn h)v the
digestive organs .r the stomachh is vno-
veiteal into Gluco-e nidlI Peptone, and in
these forms enters the P'rtial vein. IHere,
by the action of the liver, these ,Ubstances
are coInvepred into a form of sugar aind
pass out of tlie llivesr iy a large yeil, called
the Hepatic vein, inito the general circula-
tion. The new material now formed serves
two purposes, viz. : thl' iiniiienlatice of
heat ill tie body and us.-istiing ill toe cel-
grn wtdi of Ilie systlni.
Dr. Murehison says, "The composition
of bile aind its secretion is very complex.
It is constantly being secreted by the
liver, and, increasing sudaicily before vat-
ing, gradually decreases as soon as the ap-
petite is satisfied and feediing ceases." Now
it this most important organ of the body
become torpiid, or the passage of bile in,
terfered with, emaciation and disease en.-
sue. I note eigit marked peculiarities
that now occur, and which we all know of:
1. The patient complains of a
feeling of weight and fullness of
the epigastriumi.
2. TDistention of the stomach
and bowels by wind.
3. Heart-burn.
4. A feeling of weariness, pains
in the limbs and great sleepiness
after meals.
5. A bad taste in the mouth,
especially in thie morning, and
furred tongue.
6. Constipation, with occasion-
al attacks of diarrhoea.
7. +Headache in front of head.
8. Depression of spirits and
great nelahnchloly, with lassitude
and a disposition to leave every-
thing for to-morrow.
All of lie above symptoms go to show
functional deriingaetnmrt of the liver ; and
ilow eolni.s the great impilortance of any
error tiade as to tihe condition of the pa-
tient. lie sh 'uid immediately proviile
liimself with a LIVER STIMULANT,
thlie most common f,,rin of whieh i's a Pill
Daily experience shows that this, when
the Pill is comapoundied properly, is the
r'tadist mode of' inciting ii(id promoting
lte action of the liver', aid ean t ic almost
always relied on. I have devoted imanyiy
vears of myli he, as many of You now be-
for'e me know, to contmpoiiniling a Pill tllit
will act readily andl systematically as a
Bilious Rmedely. I *Io not believe 1U
gieat pitlrtatives, and therefore hiave imade
a Pill, oine of which is an active anl
thorough dose. I have called it

111. IAYDOCg's N I l L.

(Sugar Coated)
One Pill is a Dose One Pill is a
Dose One Pill is a Dose!


For nall diseases of the Kidneyr, Reten-
tion of Urine, Dr. Haydo1ck's Pills are a
peti feet cure. One pill will satisfy the
most skeptical.
