AN ANSWER DEMANDED.
ere a. Hidden Cause For Aloat
fferlng? A Carefol Iuvestl
ration. Thy inhabitants of Boston and New
England have been considerably
awakeaed the past week over some
imponS.it facts which have come out
in artiAs in the papers as to the real
cause o&nost modern diseases. Every
onehaiknoTvn that there has been
some Mysterious cause for unex
plained ffoffering that even the doc
tors couLjaot account for. A hidden
disease LiSs been shown to be the real
cause of most so-called pneumonia,
convulsions, apoplexy, etc. If this is
true, it is "f greatest importance that
"r we understand it
jm thoroughly. With
v this end in viow, a
.lAa representative of
i Una paper lias col
li facts from
vrwjicu ro given
50 Dr. J. H. Cutler,
IS who resides at 20
nEPOBTKB and jPoplar street, said :
doctor. t i have, in com
mon with all lihysAians, observed the
alarming increase V kidney diseases
leading to that feanxl scourge.Brigh t's
disease, and havefjeen constantly
seeking for the pro; )r means of meet
ing it. I have on prescribing
Hunt's Remedy foab. great many of
my patients with Meat success. I
also administered W$ my mother,
and with much bene!?."
Mr. Samuel Littlefietd, 14S2 "Wash
ington street, said: "I was troubled
with kidney disease for rears, which
finally turned to gravel I would be
free from suffering for x long while,
and then have the most terrible pains
in my back. I also had nflammation
of the worst kind iu nay bladder, and
I was altogether in a feai 111 condition.
I went to several physic ans, but all
to no purpoEe,j.arid"r fcuud I was
crowing very feeble. A friend in
Maiden urged me to use Hunt's Rem
edy. He liad been cured of travel
and liver complaint by its us, and be
lieved it would help me. Well, its
effect was wonderful, and 1 ctnnot too
highly thank my friend fcV- tie timely
recommendation he maue. I wish
I could make every one l kaw and
understand what a valuable med
icine it is."
Mrs. "William Gray, 14113 lremont
street, said: "I was trouYblei with
kidney disease for a numbeir olyeara,
at times being so bad frori, svollen
limbs and pains in the b&skthat I
was completely under the dctor's
care. 1 received only temporary
benefit until I began using Hint's
Remedy, which cured me entirely,

results. It complete- well wrrnouT;

Mr. a. Burney, baggagemaster of.
the Eastern Baifroad, declared that
ne naauseci ilunt's Kemedy in his
family for a long time, and would not
bo without it. He had not only found
it good for Kidney complaints (a trou
ble with which all railroad men are
more or less afflicted) but his wife
had usfed it successfully in a severe
case of what was, apparently, dys
pepsia. The uniform testimony which was
g'ven to the worth of this Remedy in
oston was borne out by equally
strong statements from residents in
lux. Joseph G. Bictnell of Cam
bridgeport asserted that he had been
a great sufferer. The fluids he passed
were thick with brickdust sediment,
and were voided with ths greatest
pain. Within four days from the
time he began using Hunt's Remedy
he passed a gravel stone lareer than
a pea, followed by other smalTer ones.
A speedy cure was the result, and he
cannot recommend the remedy too
Mr. George P. Cox, proprietor of
the last factory at aialden, had seen
such wonderful effects of Hunt's Rem
edy among so many of his "relatives
and friends that he was enthusiastic
in its favor. He had not only used it
himself with the greatest benefit, but
two couBins, "William "W. and John F.
Cos, had experienced untold relief.
He would not be without it if it cost
$5 a bottle.
Such statements lead us to the in
evitable conclusion that, while
Bright's disease of the kidneys is the
concealed and actual cause of many
complaints which bear other names
it can be both met and cured. Let
ill readers look to their condition at
once, and thoroughly convince them
selves whether they are or are not in
perfect health, and then use that
means which has been proven, and
is known to be both pure, efficient,

GEN. JIM LANE.
Senator Preston B. Plumb re
calls what he is pleased to term
an incident In Jim Lane's sena
torial campaign out in Kansas
many, mgny years ago. He says
that," when it b'ecarae known that
Lane was laying his pipes for the
senatorship, forthwith there arose
a bitter opposition to him, and
anions' the opposition was one
Hutchinson, a man of great natur
al ability, a persuasive talker and
an acute politician. A solemn
caucus of the anti-Lane leaders
at Leavenworth resulted in the
determination to conduot the bat
tle against Lane on the high moral
theory, and Hutchinson was dis
patched to southern Kansas to
tell the people there v?hat a profli
gate person Jim fcane was. The
first speech Hutchinson made was
at Fort Scott. The men, women
and children came in from every
where, bringing their basket
lunches with them, and otherwise
prepared for a protracted session.
Fully aroused to an appreciation
of tlit- responsibility resting upon
him, Hutchinson made the most
eloquent oration of his life, paint
ing in the fiercest language he
could command the career of the
libertine Lane, who, as he de
clared, had spent most of his life
in wrecking homes, in invading the
sancity of the fireside, in blasting
Human temaie lives, etc., etc. a.
faint idea of the imnression The
made upon his auditots may bo
gathered from the fact that when
be had wound up his peroration
with a teir'fic denunciation of
Lane and his demoniacal methods,
an old lady who sat well up in
front and who had been paying
strict attention, looked cajmly
over her silver-bo wed specs at
Hutchinson and asked: "Mister
Hutchinson, is that all you've got
agin Jim Lane?"
When he came to brood over it
in the hush of his chamber Hutch
inson concluded that he wouldn't
attempt another public speech of
this character; it would be wiser,
he decided, to employ other tao
tics. Accordingly he set himself
about canvassing the agricultural
districts, and the first man he ap
proached was a hoary old person
plowing in a field. Hutchinson
took the old farmer all aback by
riding up to him, confronting him
in the furrow, and opening out a
tremendous broadside against Jim
Lane for a libertine and a rogue.
When the simple rustic had guth-
ered his wits together and had
caught the drift, of Hutchinson's
remarks, he assumed an indignant
v exoression and said: "Excuse mo.
a sir, but I don't care to hear you
Ualk so agin a relative of mine'
(Of course this remark confused
I Hutchinson a good deal. The
best he could do under the circum
stances expressive of his deep re
gret at having denounced general
Lane iu the presence of a relative,
but while he was hemming and
hawing the old farmer interrupted
him with tOh, it's all right, stran
ger: only I didn't caro about hear
ing anybody speak disrespectful of
.hm Lane, for I kind o suspicion
him of bein' the father of my old
The Manitoba Boad.
West of "White Earth, Dakota,
there are 8,600 men and 3,000
.teams employed. From AVhite
Eaith westward seventyfive miles
beyond Fort Buford, Montana, is
one unbroken ohain of camps, and
fifty of these camps can be seen
from one' point. Over 4,000,000
cubic yards of earth has already
been taken out, and before the
first of September it is expected
that this will be increased to 10,
000,000 cubic yards. Five miles
of rood per day is being completed, J
ana tue enormous isuor ims in
volves will bo more clearly shown
by the following table of materials
required for each five miles of road
in one day: A rail is thirty feet
long, and there are consequently
352 to the mile, or 1,760 every
five miles. As. each rail weighs
600 pounds the amount of steel
handled ill one day aggregates
1,056,000 p&imdsu It takes 2,640
ties to the mile or 13,200 per
day. Thjrty-six 200-pound kegs
of spikes are used to the mile.
There are thirty-two "spikers" to
every five miles of tmck, each man
of whom drives 840 spikes.daily.
A mile of rails tUkes 1,403 bolts,
I which are handled by fourteen
!Kltarc" nr nOS each da.v. To
avoid delays in the progress of
construction by reason of rough
country, it is the intention jof
the contractors to work five gangs
of men in five hour reliefs during
a portion of the time. Work will
begin at 3 o'clock in the morning,
and the darkness will be scattered
by thousands of torches. The feat
will be the grandest ever accom
plished in rapid railroad construc
tion. Big lira Yesterday Morning.
Jersey City, N. J., July 20.
Fire in the Standard Oil com
pany's works at Constable Hook
broke out at 12:30 o'clock this
morning. Flames are spreading,
and half the town and all the fac
tories are threatened. The loss
will reach $1,000,000.
3 a. xf. The fire is still raging.
The barrel factory, supply house
and warehouses aro. entirely con
sumed. Small buildings and tanks
in the yards are afire. The whole
department is at work. The loss
will be heavy. There were six
heavy explosions, but no lives
were lost. Hundreds oi workmen
will be thrown out of employment.
Booth's lumber yard and the
Standard match factory aro in
danger. The cause of the fire is
4 a. m. No additional particu
lars of the Constable Hook fire
have been received. Flames are
visible from the associated press
office, and appear to be spreading
The Su? says the fire at Con
stable Hook has spread to T. & S.
White's sulphur factory, and that
when it went to press it looked us
if the whole place would go.
A Oat in freight Eatesr
Sax Fcaxcisco, July 19. A
change has been made in freight
rates east and west from the Jfa
cifio coast to several of the large
eastern cities. Considerable re
ductions are made thereby in ex
isting tariffs. The reasons for the
change are to be found inthesame
old fact of the PaciGc Mail and
Canadian Pacific competition. For
instance, a farmer can get iron and
tteel hauled from Pittsburg to
New York, and then bring these
shipments around by Panama, at a
less rate thanthe transcontinental
roads have been hauling the same
article by way of Chicago or St.
Louis. There is a reduction of
from SI to 2 per ton in shipments
of canned goods and the lik , from
here to eastern cities, in order to
get on as favorable footing as pos
sible with the Canadian Pacific.
A REMEDY FOK CHILLS AND
Rochester, N. Y. Dec. 16, 1885.
Four years ago I contracted a
hard cola that settled on my lungs.
I had a aevere chill, followed ;by
high, fever, raging headache, pain on
my left side over the lung, and every
time a fit of coughing came on,
which was every few minutes, it was
terrible to bear the pain. I thought
it meant an attack of pneumonia, as
I went through a two-month Biege of
that disease, and it came on just
the same war. As it wsb night I
thought I would wait until morning
before sending for a doctor. Fortu
nately a haU-box of Allcock'b
Fokous Plabtkss was fonnd in tho
possession of a friend, who boarded
with us. One of these was put on
my throat ; two on my chest, and one
on my back oVer the left shoulder
blade. 1 then had a hot foot bath.
After again getting into bed, jt
sceoied but a few minutes when an
my symptoms were relieved; the
Bkm became quickly moist ; I coughed
only at intervals, and then with
very little effort, and in about an
hour I was in a sound sleep, from
which I did not awake until morn
ing. I resumed business in two
days. H. F. Fletcher.
The prospect of the permanent
suspension of tho longer-and-short-er-haul
clause of tho interstate
commerce act seems to bo affect
