A SCIENTIST'S WARNING
Synopsis or a Remarkable Lecture
Delivered by Dr. H. E. Hammond
Bcfor the National Scientists
" We call this an 'age of progress,
and so in man respects it is, but I do
not hesitate to declare most emphati
cally that in many things that consti
tute true happiness w are simply
children. Let us see : "We are startled
constantly-by the sudden death of
some man who seemed the picture
of health. He thought he was well.
Occasionally his appetite was poor,
but then in a few days afterward it
was ravenous. He felt strange pains
shooting through his body, but as
they did not stay long he forgot them.
His head pained him periodically, he
was somewhat paler than common,
and was unaccountably tired, but he
felt comparatively well and vigorous.
And yet he suddenly
died! It is a shame
to our boasted civili
zation. Dr. Hammond
then instanced a
number of persons
well known" to him
Jgf whohad died in great
tiie sudden agony.aituougu tney

3ymptoms "and little Pain antl con
"Why is it that so many little
children are to-day stauntcd, and ap
parently blighted for life? Because
thoso early and inevitable diseases,
measles, scarlatina, etc., have so
weakened certain organs that nature
cannot do her work, and the child
languishes, perhaps dies. Look at
the list of women who die in child
birth, and why is it? Simply because
their maternal organs have been so
weakened by the most terrible of all
diseases that they cannot withstand
the fearful sudden strain that is
brought to bear upon them. How
many women escape monthly agonies ?
And j'et nature never intended that
pain -or inconvenience should attend
the operation of her natural laws.
The Bolemn and terrible fact is that
men and women drag along, die, and
are buried, and their friends and the
doctors say heart disease, apolexy,
pneumonia, congestion, convulsions,
when he cause lay far back of these
things and was Erigbt's disease of
the kidneys. That was the inward
cause ; these are the outward mani
festations. Every disease must have
a root, just as certainly as every
plant. Kidney disease is the great
root from which most modern dis
eases, no matter wh at their name may
be, actually spring.
"But because the kidney b are so
important, so delicate, and so power
ful, they require the greatest care in
treatment. Ever since the day when
Dr. Bright discovered the connection
between morbid outward symptomB
and internal decay, physicians, scien
tists, and chemists have sought for a
pure and powerful relief. It has been

tionable sources of many others,
where the preparation Hunt's Rem
edy has been almost remarkable in
its" results. One case in particular
was that of a prominent banker, re

his case to be hopeless, and who was
afterward restored to perfet health by
the mean b I have named . I have not
hesitated to use it freely among my
patients, and from the results I have
secured, I shall continue to do so."
The doctor explained how men and
women should live in order to meet
this terrible malady, and instanced
several additional cures which had
followed the use of the remedy before
referred to. In concluding, he said :
"If men and women could only be
aroused to a realization of their actual
danger; to a sense of what is before
them unless they take prompt and
proper action, and then by a correct
course of life and the use of just the
right means seek to prolong their
lives, most of the present suffering

THE OLD SPANISH NAVIGATORS.
An Incident on the Ooast of Washing
In searchinr, the old Spanish
narratives, of which some are yet
unpublished, of the exploration of
the Pacific coast, Prof. Davidson
has lately located the exact spot
where Bodega lost seven of his
men on the coast of Washington
territory. Believing that the tra
ditions of the Indians would verify
some of the statements of Bodega
and Maurelle, he solicited the co
operation of Capt. Charles "Wil
loughby, an old sailing master of
the coast surve' who has been for
years at the Indian reservation,
between Cape b lattery and Grays
Harbor. The Indians are very
reticent about murders of white
people committed by their tribe,
no matter how long ago, and the
last letter from Capt. Willoughby
reveals the tradition of another
massacre on that coast that relates
neither to Bodega's nor to Dun
can's. The former took place
abreast the Quinaiult river, three
miles north of Point Grenville, and
the latter in the Guillihute river.
This region has a list of ominous
names marking several massacres.
Ho writes: "I have obtained
iho following account of a massa
cre from 'Capitan,' one of the old
est members of the Quinaiult
tribe. He has heard his grand
father frequently speak of a ship
calltMl by the Indians 'the Spanish
!hip.' It was wrecked about four
miles south of Quillihute, on the
long point of Pinnacle Rock, mik
ing out from tin1 shore to th
westward. This places the local
ity between Destruction Island
and the Quillihute, to the north
westward. The Indians killed all
the crew excepting ten. One of
those allowed to live was a
woman; but I cannot ascertain
how many persons were on board
the vessel. After a time some o!
the up-river tribes took away the
captive white men from the coast
tribes, brought them down the
beach and gave them their liberty.
I had previously heard about the
wreck from an old Indian woman
belonging to Quillihute, but could
never learn the name of the ship.
When I wduld ask the name slip'
gave butone reply 'Capitan, C:
"Capstan's grandfather denv d
his name in some way from his
connection with the ship, as the
name 'Capitan' belonged to ihe
grandfather, the father and hi in
self. I am unable to obtain any
information of the loss of Bodega's
This is one incident in the early
history of the early navigation
upon ihis coast, and it may prompt
some one of the old Hudson Bay
people to refresh their memories,
and give us information which
they must possess of interest.
These Indians are now all set
tled on reservations and are peace
able, but as late as 1852 they com
pelled Davidson and his party, at
Cape Flattery, to make their ob
scrvations behind a breastwork,

Gov. St. John said this evening:
"I came to'Massachusels to deliver
three addresses at Mr. Hatl's pro
hibition camp meeting, and when
that mission is accomplished I
shall then go to New York and
Pennsylvania, where I am engaged
to deliver several more. After
that I intend to proceed to Cali
fornia. The prohibition party,
which cast 151,000 votes in 188-i,
and over 300,000 in 1885, will
surely be 1,000,000 in 1888. It is
marching on to victory and will
become the majority party before
many years. I believe the Re
publican and Democratic parties
must break to pieces before that
time. We are fighting the Re

death we will build up a party bf

Abe Lincoln's Pirst right.
There doe3 not live in the Unit
ed States to-day one who was so
actively associated with the mar
tyred Lincoln as John White, who
lives down the Bishop branch,
town of Viroqua. While in the
Censor office Friday Mr. White
related many amusing incidents of
his boyhood days in Illinois, when
he and Lincoln-were fast friends,
split rails, did surveying and went
to husking-bees together. Lin
coln was his senior by a number
of years, and for that reason the
every act of the lamented presi
dent remains fresh in the memory
of Mr. White.
"I remember well," 'said he,
"when the bull' of Sangamon
county, induced hy some good-natured
wag, came to the spot where
we were chopping rails and chal
lenged Abe to a prize fight. The
great, brawny, awkward boy
laughed and "drawled eut: lI
reckon, stranger, you're arter the
wrong man. I never fit in my
whole life.' But the bully made
for Abe and in the first fall Lin
coln came down on top of the
heap. Th champion was bruis
ing and causing blood to flow
down Lincoln's face, when a hap
py mode of warfare entered his
original brain. He quickly thrust
his hands into a convenient bunch
of smartweed and rubbed the same
into the eyes of his opponent, who
almost instantly begged for mercy.
He was released, but Jiis sight, for
the time being, was" extinct. No
member of the trio possessed a
pocket handkerchief, so Lincoln,
with usual originality, lore from
his own shirt front the surplus
cloth, washed and bandaged the
fellow's optics and sent him home.
I was ako present at the first law
suit he ever conducted in th. jus
tice court. Here served him well
the inexhaustible --supply of oiig
inal ideas and ways, which char
acterized his past and future life.
In his boyhood days he was as
truu to his friends as his great ca
reer proved him to be to his coun
try. Viroqua Wis., Censor.
