AN ANSWER DEMANDED.
Is Thero a Hidden Cam For AToct
Suffering? A Carefal Iavoill-
The inhabitants of Boston and New
England have been considerably
awakened the past week over some
important facts which have come out
in articles in the papers as to the real
cause of most modern diseases. Ever v
one has known that there has been
some mysterious cause for unex
plained suffering that even the doc
tors could not account for. A hidden
disease has been shown to be the real
cause of most so-called pneumonia,
convulsions, apoplexv. etc. If this is
true, it is of greatest importance that
we understand it
this end in view, a
this paper has col
lected facts from
which are given
Dr. J. H. Cutler.
r who resides at 20
reporter and Poplar street, said :
doctor. "I have, in com
mon with all physicians, observed the
alarming increase of kidnoy diseases
leading to that fearful scourge.Bright's
disease, and have been constantly
seeking for the proper means of meet
ing it. i nave been prescribing
Hunt's Remedy for a great many of
my patients with great success. I
also administered it to my mother,
and with much benefit."
Mr. Samuel Littlefield, 1482 Wash
ington street, said: "I was troubled
with kidney disease for years, which
finally turned to gravel. I would be
free from suflering for a long while,
and then have the most terrible pains
in my back, I also had inflammation
of the worst kind in my bladder, and
I was altogether in a fearful condition.
I went to several physicians, but all
to no purpose, .and I found I was
growing very feeble. A friend in
Maiden urged me to use Hunt's Rem
edy. He had been cured of gravel
and liver complaint by its use, and be
lieved it would help me. Well, its
effect was wonderful, and I cannot too
Jiighly thank my friend for the timely
recommendation he made. I wish
I could make every one know and
understand what a valuable med
icine it is."
Mrs. William Gray, 141G JCremont
street, said: "I was troubled with
kidney disease for a number of years,
at times being so bad from swollen
limbs and pains in the back that I
was completely under the doctor's
care. I received only temporary
benefit until I began using Hunt's
Remedy, which cured me entirely,
and I cannot say too much in its

have used it with
and would not be
without it. I em
ployed it in my
family when other
Jiroved wholly use
8ss, and it was
remarkable in its
results. It complete- well without ;
ly cured my wife of dying wrruis,
pain in the back."
Mr. H. Burney, baggagemaster of
the Eastern Baifroad, declared that
he had used Hunt's Remedv in his
family for a long time, and would not
pt witnout 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 used it successfully in a severe
case of what was, apparently, dys
pepsia. The uniform testimony which was
given to the worth of this Remedy in
BoBton was borne out by equally
strong statements from residents in
Sir. Joseph G. Bicknell of Cam
bridgeport asserted that he had been
a great sufferer. The fluids he passed
were thick with brickdust sediment,
and were voided with the 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 smaller ones.
A speedy cure Was the result, and he
cannot recommend the remedy too
Mr. George P. Cox, proprietor of
the last factory at Maiden, had seen
such wonderful e'fiects 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 cousins, William W. and John F.
Cox, 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,
and good. j
TRIAL BY THE HOPE.
A Striking-Incident of the Early An
nals of Astoria.
In Hubert Howe Bancroft's
latest volume of his "Pacific
States," the reader will find the
most thorough and comprehensive
record jof the popular tribunals of
the Pacific coast that has yet been
published. From this interesting
and valuable work we glean the
following little incident as but a
sample'of scores of a similar char
acter contained therein:
"Sometime in December, 1853,
an Irishmau in the service of Gen.
Adair, collector of customs at As
toria, robbed the safe of three
thousand dollars. The collector
had left his. office for a few mo
ments, with the key in the safe;
the Irishman was there at the
time, and there could he no doubt
that he took the mouey. Accused
of the theft, however, Pat strongly
denied it. As there were no wit
nesses in this instance, he regard
ed a lie well adhered to us much
better than the truth. What
should be done? The law could
not make him disgorge, for first
the offence must be proved, though
there was, perhaps, circumstantial
evidence sufficient for that; but
then Pat could afford to lie in
prison some time for three thou
sand dollars. Butler Anderson
was there at the time, and he told
the collector that he would man
age it. Taking with him a num
ber of assistants, he conducted the
Irishman a short" distance into the
woods, tied a rope round his neck
and threw one end of it over a
limb, dug'a grave, drew over the
culprit's face ac black cap, and
then told him to say his prayer?,
if so great a thief as he without a
priest could pray. Pat was scep
tical as to the sincerity of their in
tentions, and when Anderson in
timated that information as to the
whereabouts of the money might
stay proceedings, Pat felt sure
that he was safe, and protested his
innocence more loudly than ever.
'The thing must be done,' said
Anderson. 'Hoist away, boys!'
And up went the Irishman.
'Stop!' cried Anderson. 4Let
him down .a moment.'
When Pat could balance him
self upon his feet Anderson akl
him, 'Are you sure you cann.: i 1
us where the money is?'
'Oh, Jasus!' cried Pat; 'Oh,
holy mither of God! I'm sthrang
led! As 1 hope to be s-ivoil, 1
know nothing of the money. Oh,
please, Mr. Anderson, let me o!'
'No use,' said Anderson, as il
talking to himself; 'I thought per
hapsthe might like to live. String
him up again.'
Again Pat's feet left the firm
earth; again that horrible sensa
tion; thick blackness, phosphores
cent light, the hot blood lushing
in torrents to the brain, an uncer
tainty as to -whether the neck was
yet unbroken all this, as the Hi
bernian went up and down again.
The joke was becoming serious to
the sufferer. Even if they did not
mean it the lun was not pleasant;
and then they might hold him up
a moment too long. Already he
had thojght much of his mother
ana sister, wnom ne nau uupeu iu
make rich in the sweet Emerald
Isle; already his neck and head
felt very queer, and so hot and
heavy and sore. And then his
soul. To go heuce a thief un
shriven, what would become of
him? He would -not risk it a
third time foe three thousand dol
lar?. So he"told Anderson where
he had hidden"it,and was released
from the hempen remedy."
