That Remarkable Experience of a
Rochester Physician Fully Au
thenticated. .
Cleveland, 0 llerald.
Yesterday and the day before we
copied into our columns from the
Rochester, Y., Democrat and Chron
icle, a "remarkable statement made by
J. B. Ilenion, M. D.f a gentleman who
is well known in this city. In that ar
ticle Dr. Ilenion recounted a wonder
ful experience which befell him, and
the next day we published from the
same paper a second article, giving an
account of the "Excitement in Roch
ester " caused by Dr Hen ion's -statement.
It is doubtful if any two arti
cles were ever published which caused
greater commotion both among pro
fessional people and laymen.
Since the publication of these two
articles, having been besieged with let
ters of inquiry, we isent a communica
tion to Dr. Hemon, also one to 11. 11.
Warner & Co., asking if any additional
proof could be given to us as to the
validity of the statements published.
In answer thereto we have received the
following letters, which add interest to
the entire subject and verify every
statement hitherto made :
Rochester, N. Y.
Gentlemen : Your favor is received.
The published statement, over my sig
nature, to which you refer is true in
every respect, and I owe my life and
present health wholly to the power of
Warner's Safe Cure, which snatched
me from the very brink of the grave.
It is not surprising that people should
question the statement I made, for my
recovery was as great a marvel to my
self, as to my jihysicians and friends.
J. B. Henion. M. D.
Rochester, N. Y., Jan. 21.
Sirs: Acknowledging your favor
duly received, we would say : The best
proof we can give you that the state
ments made by Dr. Ilenion are entirely
true, and would not have been pub
lished unless strictly so, is the following
testimonial from the best citizens of
Rochester, and a card published by
Rev. Dr. Foote, which you are at lib
erty to use if you wish.
II. II. Warner & Co.
To Whom It May Concern:
In the Rochester Democrat and Chron
icle of. December 31, there appeared a
statement in the form of a card from
Dr. J. B. Henion, of this city, recount
ing his remarkable recovery from
Bright's disease of the kidneys, after
several doctors of prominence had
given him up, by the use of Warner's
Safe Cure. We are personally or by
reputation acquainted with Dr. Henion
and believe he would publish no state
ment not literally true. We are also
personally or by reputation well ac
quainted with H. H. Warner & Co.,
proprietors of that remedy, whose com
mercial and personal standing in this
community are of the highest order,
and we believe that - they would not
publish any statements which were not
literally and strictly true in every par
ticular. C. R. Parsons, (Mayor of Rochester.)

To the Editor of tlie Living Church, Chi
cago, III.:
There was published in the Rochester
Democrat and Chronicle of the olst of
December, a statement made by J. B.
Henion, M. D., narrating how he had
been cured of Bright's disease of the
kidneys, almost in its last stages, by
the use of Warner s Safe Cure. 1 was
referred to in that statement, as having
recommended and urged Dr. Henion
to try the remedy, which he did, and
was cured. The statement of Dr.
Henion is true, so far as it concerns
myself, and I believe it to be true in
all other respects. He was a parish
ioner of mine and I visited him in his
sickness. I urged him to take the
medicine and would do the same again
to any one who was troubled with a
disease of the kidneys and liver.

A Bad Year for Weddings.
Weddings in India will be unlucky if
celebrated during this year. Every
twelve years in the Hindoo calendar oc
curs a year during which it i3 held that
no marriage must take place, and ac
cordingly within the last few months
the matrimonial mirket has been un
usually lively. This custom will great
ly affect the Government Registration
Department,. which is sometimes used
to register curious matrimonial pro
visions. Thus, in one village, a hus
band undertakesby deed never to beat
or abuse his wife; another bridegroom
registers his promise to live always
with his father-in-law or pay a large
sum of money in default, and "in another
case a low-class Hindoo, who is the son
of a second husband, binds himself not
. to occupy such seats at marriage cere
monies as are intended for those of his
class who are sons by first husbands.
The Registration Department also late
ly prepared a deed whereby two natives
belonging to opposite factions under
took to enter into a certain religious
dispute, the vanquished side to pay an
indemnity and become the victor's disci
ple. Boston Transcript.

Well, let thera tell the story.
'"No," said Air. SiddaU, "you would hardly
think my wife an invalid. Certainly she has
not the emaciated or feebled appearance. But
some time ao, there appeared on her side
something which seemed to be a tumor. Two
of her relatives had died of cancer and she
feared she was to be a victim ot that terrible
malady. The tumor, or whatever it was, in
creased in size and painfulness. The chafing of
the dress against it was a continual reminder of
its presence, as well as a constant irritation.
We teared the necessity of the surgeon knife
as a last resort. "
"But we tried another method. I had long
known of Compound Oxygen. It had never
made any impression on my mind until, after a
good deal of disbelief, I had trie i it for my sick
headaches. With close application to a largely
increasing business which took my whole time
and thought. 1 had become a martyr to this dis
tressing complaint., ltseemed strange that such
an invisible agent as the gas which id inhaled
through a tube could male its impress on that
condition of the system which produces
sick headache. But it did. Alter tak
ing the othoe treatment, I found complete rest
from brain weariness, and entire exemption
from the nausea and the harrowing pains which
make up that very unpleasant combination
known as sick headache. 1 became an entirely
renovated man in my abilitv to attend to daily
business. 1 had also for a long series of years
snlt'ered severely from constipation. The Com
pound Oxygen treatment completely removed
this trouble.
"So we concluded to try Compound Oxygen
for Mrs. Siddall. JJr. Starkey, after a careful
examination, pronounced the abnormal growth
to be something entirely dillerent from cancer.
This was a great relief if the growth could not
oe entirely removed, and it gave great conn
dence in Dr. Starkev. for some nractitionei s
would have tried to mak it out as aggravated
and alarming, a case as possible, in order to
magnify their skill in case a cure were made.
In even the short space of a few days the effect
was perceptible. Compound Oxygen was doing
its work on the blood. The poison in the circu
lation, or whatever it was that had caused the
growth of the lump, was driven out of the sys
tem. Most of the hard growth was absorbed
into the circulation, and thus carried away.
The hardness departed. Something like the
core of a boil came .out, painlessly. VV ithin
four weeks from the time she began to take the
Compound Oxygen, -the lump was gone, and the
flesh had healed and become as natural and
healthy as that on any other oart of the body
"Mis. Siddal is now as able as ever to attend
to her regular duties, which she heartily enioys.
bhe is a wonderful help to me in my extensive
business, being at my olnce every day, transact
ing with great efficiency, the affairs of her de
partment, whiuh consists in the supervision of
the twenty may clerks."
And how as to your son. Mr. Siddall?
"Well, he is now as hearty as needs be; thanks
to Compound Oxygen, liis blood w as impure.
For years he was ray cashier, with constant
duty and heavy responsibility, it wore on him

indicative ot the condition of his blood. There
were dark spots under his eyes, and his Ken
eral state was such that although he was not
laid up in bed as a chronic invalid, there was
danger that he would be. We tried him with
the treatment. Compound Oxygen soon did for
him what it had done for his mother and my
self. It renewed his blood and gave him a
heartier vitality. The pimples, blue spots and
other indications disappeared. His skin be

Well, 1 have induced four of my clerks to take
the treatment. There is Mr. Johnson, form
stance. Come round to the office in the morn
ing and see him. He had catarrh so badty that
at night he had to take a handkerchief to bed
with him, ana to .have a basin by the side of
the bed, in which to expectorate during the
hours when most people are asleep, and now,
alter but a tew weeks' treatment, he is almost
entirely rid of Ins trouble. His ears were
clogged witU catarrh discharge. They are now
entirely fre trom it. '
"And so 1 might tell you till morning of such
cases, and others of similar importance and
value. You cannot speak too highly of Com
pound Ox., gen. Von may give my opinion of it
as strongly as you please."
The writer called to see Mr. Johnson and
found him at his post, not only free from
catarrhal annoyance, but grateful for it, and
enthusiastic in his praises of Compound Oxygen.
And now, if any one wishes to know all about
this wonderful Compound Oxygen, let him
write to Drs. blarney 6c Jt'aien, lltw liirard St.,
Phil delphia. and they will send him an inter
csting little book in which its discovery, nature
and action are fully described. It also contains
a large record of remarkable cures which have
been made during the last twelve or thirteen
years in ail tonus or chronic ailment.

Catarrh ifl a muco purulent discharge caused by the
presence and developnitnt of the vegetable parasite
anineoa in tne internal lining memnr&ue ot the nose.
This parasite is only developed under fttvorable circum
stances, and these are: Morbid state of the blood, as the
bUL'hted corpuscle of tulercle, the eerm poison of syphi
lis, mercury, toxuiinea. from the retention of the effete
matter of the shin, suppressed perspiration, badly ven-
tilateu sleeping apartments, anu other poisons that are
germinated in the blood. These poisons keep the internal
linintc membrane of' the nose in a constant state of irri
tation, ever ready for the deposit of the seeds of these
germs, which spread up the nostrils and down the
fauces or back of throat, causing ulceration of the
throat; up the eustachian tubes, causuiir deafness: bur
rowing in the vocal cords, causing hoarseness usurping
tne proper structure ot tue bronchial tubes, ending in
uulmonarv consumutson and death.
Many attempts have been made to discover a cure for
this distressing disease by the use of inhalents and other
ingenious devices, but none of these treatments can do
a particle of good until the parasites are either destroyed
or removed from the mucous tissue. .-

A sure cure for Blind, Bleeding, Itching and Ulcer
ated Piles bas been discovered by I)r. William (an In

after getting warm in bed), acts as a poultice, gives in
stant relief, and is prepared only for Piles, itching of

Not The Bright Prospects That Had Been
. Painted There.
His name was H. H. Asbnry and he
had just come in from the Little Rock
ies, and spread his bold, bad autograph
on the register of the Merchants, when
he was solicited by a Day reporter to
talk about the mines there.
'I was at Helena when the first inti
mation of gold there was given out,"
he said, "and I got an outfit at Benton,
taking the Crow Creek road from there
to the scene of the excitement. It re
quired eleven days to make the trip.
Times were good in the Little Rockies
then, and I got as high as thirty cents'
to the pan. The gulch proper is three
miles long and there are places in it
where the bed rock is washed bare for
three hundred or four hundred feet at a
stretch. The general formation is por
phyry, and there are from eighteen to
fifty men at work in this one gulch. In
the entire mining district there are all
told from eighty to one hundred men.
They are going aDd coming all the time
and the increase in number, if any, is
very small, most all appearing to think
there is nothing in it. The great draw
back is lack of confidence. If one man
makes a big find it sort o' livens up the
feelings of the rest, but it does not last
long. The prospectors soon settle
down into idle listlessness. I do not
think there is a single claim in the
mountains that is paying. One hole
was sunk about fifty feet deep but they
had no return, then a drain about nine
feet deep on People's Creek was made
and a few colors were secured in the
pan. Now there is no one around the
creek. It is utterly deserted. There
was a report circulated that one hun
dred and thirty dollars was taken out in
one day in Little Alder gulch, but it was
all bosh, for at all the different camps
forty dollars was the largest sum that
could be found' as having been taken
out in one day. The report that there
are traces of diggings there a number
of years ago is untrue, for I could not
find any evidence of them.
- 'The mountain looms up in the midst
of a large plain, and branches oft' from
one gray peak in all directions. There
are many difficulties encountered in
operating these mines, the principal be
ing a lack of water. There is none to
wash out the gold except what is ol
tained by the melting of snow during
late spring and early summer at the
heads of the gulche3. The only reason
why this senseless stampede occurred
was an attempt to get' people into the
country. It is a good grazing region,
and on this plan they can alone secure
a permanent settlement." St. Paul
