CiimsTMAS Rat.l. The ball glvon last
Monday ovening by tho Mystic Club at
Pope's Hall was one of tho most pleasant
affairs of the winter. The large hall was
filled with festive dancers, the music en
livcninir, and the hours flew rapidly and
speedilv away. The supper, served at the
CI ill Iiouse, was a sumptuous one, and
prepared after the fetylo we all appreciate.
We would be very happj' to mention the
names of tho participants, and to describe
the elegant and tasteful toilets worn by
the ladies ; but there were such a multitude
of them that ye do not remember one half
the names, and we are not sutliciently ac
complished to attempt a description of the
toilets of tho fair ones. The guests were
more than pleased, and continued to step
to tho music of the merry dance until
tho morning hours were close at hand.
The ball was a perfect success, financially

that time, extended northward to the

The unusual surrender by
preme court of England of
criminal jurisdiction over the adjacent waters to
the distance of three miles from the
coast excites much comment in law cir-
cles throughout the kingdom. A Ger-
man sea captain, Iveyn, carelessly run
down an English vessel within two miles
of Dover pier causing much loss of life.
He was tried for homicide, but his
counsel denied the jurisdiction of the
court, and, on an appeal to tho full
bench of 11 judges, seven denied juris
diction and six affirmed it, there being
one vacancy. A decision made by
such a narrow vote is naturally receiv
ed with a good deal of distrust. The
position of tho beuch seems to be that
Parliament has never asserted jurisdic
diction beyond low-water mark, though
some of the precedents cited showed
that it had tacitly assumed such juris
diction. Tho practical inconvience of a
doctrine which would place it in any
body's power to row out a few yards
from shore and commit any crime defi
ant of territorial authority will probab
ly indnco Parliament to assert in terms
a jurisdiction whicli international law
has conceeded to all powers.

Messrs, S. W. FowleA Sons:
(jrentlemen. Several years since I took a
severe cold, which settled on my lungs, when
it remained without relaxation. I was in
Massachusetts, and growing worse and be-
comingiunable to attend to my business I re
turned home and commenced searching in
earnest for some medicine which would re
store my lost health. I consulted physicians,
I tried many remedies, but obtained no heln
but daily grew worse. I had a terrible cough,
and raised a good deal of blood. I had pro
fuse night sweats, and severe pain in my
side. I continued in this state lor mont hs.
and became so week that It was with great
difliculty I could walk, when I was adised to
try Wistar's Balsam of Wild Cherry, and
to my great loy I soon found that thisremedy
has arressted the disease. I continued to use
the Balsam to the extent 01 nve bottles, and
have &ince experienced no difficulty of t he
lungs. I believe the Balsam saved my life
and I shall ever hold it in estimat ion. '

Without showing the condition four teeth.
Every laugh exposes them. In order not to
be ashamed of them let us use that standard
dentifrice, HOZODONT, which is sure to keep

crust them, no canker effect the enamel.no
sjiecies of decay infest the dental bone, if
SOZODONT is regularly used. It is a botani
