(From th Journal. Detroit, Mich.)
.Every one in the vicinity of Meldrum
avenue and Champlaln street, Detroit,
knows Mrs. McDonald, and many a
neighbor has reason to feel grateful to
her for the kind and friendly interest
she has manifested in cases of illness.
She is a kind-hearted friend, a natural
nurse, and an intelligent and refined
To & reporter she recently talked at
aome length about Dr. "William's Pink
Pills, giving some very interesting in
stances in her own immediate knowl
edge of marvelous cures, and the uni
versal beneficence of the remedy to
those who had used it.
" I have reason to know." said Mrs.
McDonald, "something of the worth of
this medicine, 'or it has been demon
strated in my own immediate family.
My daughter Kittle is attending high
school, and has never been very strong
since she began. I suppose she studies
hard, and she has quite a distance to go
every day. When the small-pox broke
out all of the school children had to be
vaccinated. I took her over to Dr. Jame
son and he vaccinated her. I never saw
such an arm in my life and the doctor
said he never did. She was broken out
on her shoulders and back and was just
as sick as she could be. To add to it
all neuralgia set in and the poor child
was in misery. She is naturally of a
nervous temperament end she suffered
most awfully. Even after she recovered
the neuralgia did not leave her. Stormy
days or days that were damp or pre
ceded a storm, she could not go out at
all. She was pale and thin and had no

about the Pink Pills, but I got some for
her and they cured her right up. She
has a nice color in her face, eats and
sleeps well, goes to school every day,
and is well and strong in every partic
ular. I have never heard of anything to
build up the blood to compare with

the house and recommend them to my

A Joke That is Not Half True.
It is a common joke that when a
man's wife is out of town he writes a
mournful letter, and then poes around
and has a high old time. There is not
much in that joke. It does not begin
to do duty with the mother-in-law joke,
and that is pushed far beyond its
deserts. The fact is that out of a dozen
men whose wives are out of the city
for the summer there will be at least
eleven who are really lonely, and, in
fact, put in a very miserable time.
They do not feel willing1 to acknowl
edge it at first, and few like to have
sympathy thrust upon them, but there
are mijrhty few who do not in their
hearts pay the highest kind of tribute
to their wives and wish for their re
turn. "W ashington Star.
Word Which Rhyme Not.
The number of English words whici
have no rhyme in the language is very
large, Five or six thousand at least
are without rhyme and consequently
can be employed at the end of the
verse only by transposing the accent,
coupling" them with an imperfect conso
nance or constructing an artificial
rhyme out of two words. Among the
other words to which there are no
rhymes may be mentioned month, sil

Campaign for International Bimetallism
Should Be Inaugurated and Kept Up
Until Public Sentiment U Thoroughly
(John V. Farwell, in Chicago Record.)
"The crime of 187S" became a veri
table Horr-nets nest in the recent long
debate. The "immaculate conception"
of financial wisdom and honesty
brought forth a gold standard, says
Horr, and the child, says Harvey, has
been the incarnation of monetary vil
lainy, and each is applauded to the echo.
The Congressional Record has be
come a financial bible, in that any mon
etary sect can turn over its pages and
prove anything to suit all the high
priests of finance. Even the saintly
Tribune's columns have been subsi
dized by the "Harveyized steel process"
into saying things on both sides of the
criminal indictment against congress
hardened sinner that she is if Harvey
is to be believed.
Horr is horrified by Harvey's sug
gestion that any criminal intent lurked
in silver demonetization through the
child-like and bland Messrs. Sherman
and Hooper, who acted as wet nurses
for the innocent gold-standard coinage
law. The idea that it was coined in
villainy and issued in deception so
tried his nerves that he had to have a
vacation for recruiting purposes.
It was a most innocent law assur
edly for "we only had greenbacks in
circulation when it was passed." How
could it affect us? True, we owed a
$3,000,000,000 war debt, made on a bi
metallic standard. Who in congress
could be such a fool as not to want to
pay it in gold if the creditors wanted
it, or such a knave as to ask our gener
ous creditors to take their pay in silver,
then worth a premium of 3 per cent?
Monstrous! This is all very plain.
Of course, it is arrant nonsense to
affirm that a law reducing the world's
money more than one-half would make
the other fraction that was left any
harder to get when pay day came
around. Only fools can hold to such
an idea.
They are not Tribunized. That's
what's the matter with them.
The idea that silver demonetization
has made any difference in its real
value, by destroying the most aggres-
siro arr nnn e t n n t lomanrt fnr it or in
v i M v. i j
the value of gold by doubling the de-
mand, is only a child's fancy. Full
grown men know better.
No wonder that Brother Horr is hor
rified when Brother Harvey even hints
that any one has not been elevated into
the third financial heaven by the last
twenty-five years of a beneficent gold
True, wehave had a few labor strikes
and a few failures in the manufacturing
world on account of a decline of 50 per
cent in the value of their products in
exchanging them for gold but this
does not prove that gold has risen in
exchangeable value for such property.
Of course, it don't only fools claim
that. This is due only to the overpro
duction of silver since it was demone
tized, and to the expansive power of
steam on the brain. Any one should
see that without a financial telescope.
Haven't university professors said so,
time and again, if not oftener? Dare
any one dispute their dictum? Verily,
verily we have fallen on evil times
when gold spectacles cannot make even
blind people see the folly of wanting
more real money. True, our property
wealth has increased many hundred
times since silver was relegated to the
kitchen into the spoon business, which,
together with property accumulations
of the last twenty-five years, and of the
centuries, must now be measured only
with gold. But who is fool enough to
believe that this alters the exchange
able value of gold or the demand for it
when hank bills, checks and credits
can be printed by steam and any one
can imagine that these can supply the
place of gold, which must be admitted
is a little scarce, when the imagination
fails to make good its wonderful illu
sions in the light of a panic which
makes commerce see stars of the. first
magnitude, while bankers call in their
loans in the vain hunt for golden
eagles, "gone where the woodbine
twineth," into the wilderness of sin,
while Sinai thunders the law, "Pay
that thou owest," not in checks and
bank bills, but in gold vanished into
burglar-proof vaults and old women's
stockings. (See Eccles on Panics not
in his newspaper arc-light articles on
the beauties of a gold standard, but in
his tour of inspection of national
banks, in the panic of 1893, looking for
the location of said "woodbine" and a
chemical that would turn pictures into

strated that while Jacob has been get- i

wealth in exchange for gold. The ser
vant has become the master of all val
ues, from turnips to church steeples.
Mr. Horr informs us that Newton and
Copernicus foresaw the fall of silver
and the coming revolution in many mat
ters. It must have been when Newton
saw the apple fall. And so the law of
gravitation simply means that silver
and all other products of labor must
fall when gold was discovered to be the
best metal to corner this business of
falling. Copernicus, when he discov
ered the revolution of the earth on its
axis, simply foresaw that the power of
gold as the best money metal only a
little scarce would work a revolution
in all commercial affairs. Why should
n't these antediluvians forsee the wis
dom that a few centuries would store
up in the brain of Sherman and Hooper
to construct a law that would do a
thing that no one supposed was being
done in 1873, but the wise men who dis
covered gold as the only metal fit Tor
legal money to run corners with on
other products of labor the law of
gravitation must of necessity attract
everything of the nature of value to
the center of the universe of trade,
which is, of course, gold.
The law of revolution on its own axis
for mother earth is only another way
of saying that everything worth a cent
must immediately revolve around the
gold axis of commerce to conform to
human reason and an honest imagin
ation, which with our own supply of
confidence can make money of paper
rags equal to gold until the bottom
drops out of confidence. Truly, Broth
er Horr, this is "an age of wonderful
' progress." when the shadow of gold can
, be turned into bullion by printing pa
j per and a high-toned fancy,
i The congress of 1S73 cannot plead
i guilty to an indictment of ignorance
1 and retain self-respect, but they can
; claim the wisdom of Newton and Co
; pernicus and the moral honesty cf vcri
j table Josephus, tempted, it may be, by
I a wicked lobby not Potiphar's wife
i but as Copernicus and Newton believed
! in a gold standard to liquidate debts
j made on a silver standard they could
j not have been wrong in doing what
they did, and therefore they were
neither ignorant nor vile. Can't any
. one see that such reasoning beats
i Blackstone on the law of evidence in
criminal practice?
We advise Brother Harvey to give up
the contention at once. It would be so
nice to believe that no one is wanting
in brains or honesty, now that Col.
Strong and Gen. George B. Swift are
mayors of the two great cities which
have been ruled with such unimpeach
able honesty for so many years, that
one may well wonder that "the crime
of 1873" was ever invented by fertile
imaginations. There could have been
no motive for revolutionizing the
J monetary system of the world but to
I enable the laboring man to get gold to
buy beer with certainly not. Then
j why should not Harvey and all good
j Christians request that the congress of
1S73 be voted a gold medal every one
of them? If this had been done in
Queen Victoria's country they would
all have been knighted before night,
that their fame might have been per
petuated for the benefit of beermakers
and the dear laboring classes. Gold
medals, however, are better than
empty titles for I remember when
Baron Grant took in a bevy of English
j lords with a Utah. silver mine, the stock
exchange remarked, "The queen may
s grant titles, but a title without honor is
j a Baron Grant," and presto, change,
i Baron Grant's mansion was prized and
j sold, but the purchaser could not fill the
tainted dwelling place of a baron, and
had to tear it down because the said
baron was a barren field in which to
find honor or anything else of value in
the markets of the world. Honest In
dian, has not the gold standard proved
a mammoth pall of the public to the
gold barons who advised it for their
own purposes of deceit as to results?
Horr says commerce has settled the
question and not law. Harvey says law
settled it for centuries, so that gold
and silver were legal money until 1873.
Who is right on this question it is not
hard to find.
Would it not be well to find out ratios
of property to money, that is, to meas
ure it past and present and see
whether the products of labor in both
are properly protected? This is the
basis of any ratio that can be consid
ered honest and fair to all.
Who paid for this famous debate?
Will it sell in book form to let both
parties out, by the public paying the
bills, as in the sale of "Coin's Financial
Will either party rise to the occasion
and with sound and consecrated com
mon sense give us a currency law that
the people can indorse, when the de
bates are closed, at the polls? A com
promise with the people is the only way
out and it should be based on the ex
perience of the past In the use of
greenbacks, as well as silver and gold.
The bankers of Europe and the United
States should inaugurate it instead of
sending Horr to demolish one humbug
in the interest of another, and "let us
have peace" instead of panics for the
next 100 years. A campaign in the in
terest of international bimetallism
should be inaugurated and kept up un
til public sentiment shall demand the
only world-wide solution of a problem
which for twenty-five years has vexed
the ocean of commerce, with more
storms than all other centuries of con
flicts, in the destruction of values, in
stead of wars, without any compensa
tion whatever in the demonetization of
Bb Is Transplanted from Sheep to Boy
in a Philadelphia Hospital.
A few days ago in the operating room
of the Hahnemann hospital in Phila
delphia, a big healthy sheep was sac
rificed that young Boyd Folwell might
have a well leg. The operation which
ensued, that of taking a bone from a
live animal and implanting it in a hu
man subject, is so uncommon as to
make It worthy of more than passing
notice. Folwell is a bright boy of 15
years, who received an injury to his leg
about four months ago, which resulted
In necrosis, or rotting of the shin bone
of his right leg. He was admitted to
the Hahnemann hospital, but nothing
could be done to stay the progress of
the mortification. A few days ago It
was decided that amputation of the
limb would become .necessary to save
the boy's life, and, after the parents
had been so notified and were pre
pared for the worst, Dr. Carl V. Visher,
one of the surgeons of the hospital
staff, decided that bone-grafting might
save the limb. Accordingly a big, fine
looking sheep was procured at the
stock yards and taken to Dr. Visher's
laboratory. The animal was shorn and
shaved, and kept in first-class condi
tion for a few days, when it was taken
to the hospital. The boy was placed
under the influence of ether, and the
part of the bone of the right leg for
seven inches above the ankle joint was
cut away. The sheep in the meantime
had been chloroformed, and the sur
geons cut away a portion of its fore
leg to the exact measurement of the
part the place ofwhich it was to take.
As soon as the bone was taken from
the sheep it was fitted in the gap and
the joints of the boy's bones were cov
ered with periosteum from the sheep's
bone, in order to afford the proper
nourishment to the bone. The boy is
said to be feeling well, but some time
must elapse before it is definitely
known whether or not the grafting is
a success. Only a few operations have
been successfully carried out. If the
operation comes up to the expectation
of the surgeons, Folwell will walk and
run as well as he ever did in his life.
And Didn't Shudder at the Thought of
Besting the Innocent Conductor.
She was a business-like woman.
There was nothing frivolous in her
face, if I am any reader of counte
nances. She looked as if she could
drive a bargain with the skill of an ex
pert. She boarded a Main street car,
walked calmly to the front corner, sat
down and began to read a newspaper.
After several other persons had got on,
the conductor came forward to collect
the fares. The woman did not look
up from her paper. The conductor
rang up a number of fares, and then be
gan to look puzzled. Evidently his re
ceipts did not correspond with the men
tal note he had made of the number he
should collect.
"Did I get your fare'" he asked of a
man sitting on the opposite side of the
car. The reply was affirmative.
"And jours?" turning to his neigh
bor. Still an affirmative reply. The
woman continued absorbed in her pa
per. The conductor looked hard at her
several times, but evidently her sex
saved her from an accusation of trying
to beat the company. The conductor
shook his head sadly, and returned to
the rear platform. Then the woman
stopped reading, and, with just the
ghost of a smile on her face, began
looking out of the window. I have seen
men work'the trick often, but this was
the first time I ever saw a woman who
had the nerve to do it. Ex.
War mrtltioiis in Cuba.
A prominent Cuban who left the is
land recently and is visiting New Or
leans, says there is little doubt in his
mind of the success of the revolution.
The Spanish army is composed of very
young men, who are not used to much
exertion or a tropical climate. They
are constantly harassed at night by
small parties of Insurgents, who pre
vent them from sleeping, and the sen
try duty required is very heavy. The
revolutionists live on the corn and oth
er crops that grow wild in Cuba, and
there are cattle enough in the deeper
recesses of the forests to last an army
two years. The hospitals in the larger
cities are full of sick and wounded
Spanish soldiers. Campos is virtually
conducting a defensive campaign, and
his hold upon some of the important
towns is by no means secure.
Cecil Rhode' "White Rhinoceros.
Premier Cecil Rhodes recently came
Into possession of a white rhinoceros,
and has intimated his intention of pre
senting it to the South African mu
seum. It is a very fine specimen of a
class of beasts now nearly extinct. It
measured six feet four inches across
the shoulders, and its long and short
horns are two feet eleven and one-half
inches and eleven and three-quarter
inches respectively. Mr. Rhodes has
sent the carcass home to be properly
stuffed at his own expense, and the
value of the gift ia very considerable.
Baron Rothschild recently paid $2,000
for a white rhinoceros, and the museum
would have been prepared to offer a
similar price had not Mr. Rhodes come
to the rescue. Mr. Rhodes' rhinoceros
was killed in Mashonaland.

The intensity of confined sound is

feet deep and 12 feet in diameter. The
well has 18 feet of water in it, and the
entire interior from top to water is

so completely confines the sound that a

very plainly to strike the water, at a

The Woman Medical Writer.
A London, writer, with due respect
for women journalists, thinks that the
only department of a paper that should
be closed to a woman writer is the
medical unless, of course, she is a
medical "man." He goes on to say that
the medical columns of any London
weekly, it is easy to perceive, are con
ducted by accomplished experts, but a
case has recently come under his notice
where a young woman who had failed
as an art critic was set to answer the
medical inquiries of correspondents on
a country paper. "I forget to a deci
mal what was the exact mortality of
the district," he continues, "but the
proprietor said if she remained much
longer on the paper he should have had
no subscribers left. One of her replies
was something like this: 'To Daisy

Yes. The mistake was mine. It

the writer was an employee of the
