A sure Cure for Blind, Bleeding, Itching

by Dr. Wil lam, (mi Indian Remedy,,
called Dr. William's Indian Ointment. A

wonderful soothing medicine. Lotions in
struments and electuaries do more harm
than good. William's Ointment absorbs
the tumors, allays the intense itching,
(pMlicularly at night after getting warm
in bed,) acts as a poultice, gives instant
relief, and is prepared only for Piles, itch-

IMSSI.Mi TllKOl'GU TUE SlEZ CANAL.
After coaling at Malta wo steamed
down the Mediterranean, over the
smoothest sea and benea'h the bluest
sky it was ever my happy portion to
see. It was about five o'clock one
morning when we first saw the light
house at Port Said, and about eight
o'clock we entered between the two
piers which guard the entrance to the
canal and stretch Jar out into the Med
iterranean. Passing a Turkish frigate
and a French ram we slowly steamed
close to the left hand shore and made
fast to a buoy. No sooner were we
fast than the Arabs swarmed on board,
and soon coal was coming over the side
and into the bunkers at a rapid rate
from barges alongside. On the left
hand for a long distance stretched coal
felted, for this is the great coaling port
for steamers bound eastward, there be
ing quite a difference in the price here
and at the other end of the canal. On
the right was the town of Port Said,
while in front, lost far in the desert,
appeared the canal, tho grandest engi
neering feat of the age. Just fanoy
the amount of labor when it was nec
essary to carry the sand a mile off into
the desert and at the same timo pre
vent the rurrounding sand from drift
ing and rolling into its place. Just
take a handful of sand out from a pile
and tee how quickly the hollow is filled
up, and you then form some idea
of the undertaking. I was told out
there that the English abandoned the
work through inability to obtain la
borers at any price, and that the
French only succeeded by convict la
bor; tl)at soldiers stood guard and a
refusal to work was instantly followed
by a shot, and that every foot of it is a,
monument to some poor devil sent in
short order to the Arabian paradise.
However this wa, the canal was fin
ished and is to day tho only rcutn for
steamers to the east. About 1 o'clock
the pilot came on board, and in a few
iniiwtfs we Jeft our moorinp- uml i
steamed into tnd canal. The cliairnet
has about twentv-six feet of water in
it, and which is only kept at that depth
by constant work at tho dredges and by
strengthening the sides with sinking
rock and walling up the sides where
they are tho most threatening. On
both sides th? embankments rise up to
a height of ten or fifteen feat, and are
composed of the dull brown sands
which stretch away on both sides as
far as the eye can see, the horizon
shrouded in the blinding glare of the
heated air rising from the burning
sands till the eyes ache and the heart
sickens at the dismal scene. With
what relief wo turn to the canal
stretching like a blue sparkling ribbon
and feast our eyes at the sight of a
station looming up a half-mile ahead
with its littls cottage, its shrubbery and
trees planted right in the midt of a
desertand drawing life from asoil which
has been brought 100 miles to make
life endurable to tho station-master,
banished away out here, hundreds of
miles from his own fair France; for
who else but a Frenchman would ever
think of bringing his garden with him,
with its flowers and trees, out here in
this wilderness of sands "We tied up
for a few seconds to let on of tho P.
Si C. steamers pass us: for every .vessel
must give way to the ''Royal Mail,"
except men of-war, which have the
right of way everywhere. The "canal"
is not wide enough for vessels to pass
each other, so every quarter of a mile
or so.thero is a wider place for tying
up, and the ressel reaching there first
makes fast to the band and allows the
other one to pass, except in the case of
a vessel carrying tho mail or a man-of-war,
both of which go right on through
without stopping except during the

sound of the engine whistle, and the
next minute a train swept by at the

Came quickly trooping by.
I noticed on the other bank a veri
table caravan, such as one reads about
and sees so much in pictures of the
desert horses and camels and the old
man nil wrapped up in his white
clothes, with the snine Ions rifln with
its crooked stock which I have, sen
duplicated on canvas, till I felt an in
clination 'to extend a hand and say,
" How- are you, old boy for old ac-
quaintance sake. And then I thought
what a difference between tho bank.
Here tho railroad, the telegraph and
there the old Arab travelling, as his
father and his grandfather and his
great-grand father did a hundred years
ago; a century separated by this narrow
stream. At dusk we tied up, having made
about thirty miles, as we wero only
allowed to go "blow" through the canal
for fear of injuring tho banks. Tho
next morning found us on our way,
and soon we wero threading tho
crooked channel through the lake with
tho town of Ismnilia broad off tho port
beam. After about two houra' steam
ing at full speed we again slowed down
and entered tho other part of tho canal,
and ugain passed through between the
same brown banks with disgust, and
only enlivened by the stations, with
their fw feet of surronding verdure
nnd occasional steamers bound to the
westward, too few und far between,
which wo passed or which passed us,
until we finally steamed into the Gulf
of Suez about 5 in the afternoon.
Off on our left gleamed the houses
of Suez and here we left our French
pilot and took up a native Red Sea
pilot, black as a coal and mute as one
of the sphinxes which aJorn the native

Harvesting is the Stack. Mr. E.
Neilson, of.Halewood, near Liverpool,
has devised and placed at the free uso
of his brother farmers a method of har
vesting in the stack which may be ap
plied to grass, grain, and almost all
kinds of field produce, and which, if
the statements made about it are trust
worthy, renders the farmer largely in
dependent of the weather at harvesting
lime. As applied to the hay process is
.-.imply this: The slaek U made in such
a way as to leave a hollow space in tho
middle, running up about a third of its
luiiijlit, mid Ihs lower end of this hol-
'"w is connected wiihthq outer,airby$
,l-tu,"r 1"" "" im .!. ..on-'
"t-cted with an exhaust fan, .and as
soon as the stack begins to heat tho
fan is set to work, and the moisture is
drawn forth in a cloud of steam. The
fan exhausts the tube, the outer air
presses through the stack in all direc
tions to supply it, and the hay is cooled
and dried. The stack can thus be kept
atany temperature by watehingtho ther
mometer; and a littlo careful attention
hasbeen found tomake the condition of
the hay thus treated perfect, evon in
cases in which it had been stacked
quite wet. The method is easy to carry
out, and it is said ta save in labor in
the hay field what it costs in simple
machinery. New York "Tribune."
The Chinese compositor cannot sit
at his case as our printers do, but must
walk from one case to another con
stantly, as the characters needed cover
such a largo number that they cannot
be put into anything like the spaco
used in tho English newspaper office,
fn setting up an ordinary piece of
manuscript the Chinese printer will
ttiiliz up and down the room for a few
minutes and then goes down stairs for
a line of lower case. Then ho takes
die elevator nnd goes up into tho third
story after some caps, and then goes
into the woodshed for a handful of
