    A Paralytic Cured.
Hl Grandfather, m Revolutionary Sol
dier, and His Father, Both Died of
Paralysis, Yet the Third Gener
ation Is Cured --The Method.
(From the Herald. Boston, Mass.)
Like a thunderbolt frcm a clear sky
a strode of paralysis came to Mr. Frank
T. Ware, the well known Boston auc
tioneer and appraiser, at 235 Washing
ton street. He went to bed one night
about Mix years ago seemingly in robust
health When he awoke his left side
w etifrened by the deadening of the
nerves. The interviewer sought out Mr.
Ware to get the facts. He gave the in
teresting particulars in his own way:
"The first shock came very suddenly
while I was asleep, but it was not last
ing in its effects, and In a few weeks I
was able to be about. A few months
after, when exhausted by work and
drenched with rain I went home in a
very nervous state. The result was a
tecond and more severe shock, after
which my left arm and leg were prac
tically helpless.
"My grandfather, whr was a soldier
in the Revolutionary War. and lost an
arm in the struggle for American inde
pendence, died finally of paralysis. My
father also died of paralysis, although
it was complicated with other troubles,
and so I had some knowledge of the fa
tal character of the disease which Is he
reditary In our family. After the sec
end shock I took warning, for, in all
probability, a third would carry me off.
"Almost everything under the sun was
recommended to me and I tried all the
remedies that veemed likely to do any
good, electricity, massage and special
ists, but to no effect.
"The only thing I found that helped
me was Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and I
verily believe that if it hadn't been for
those pills I would have been dead
years a fro.
"Yes, I still have a slight reminder of
the last attack six years ago. My left
arm is not as strong as the other and my
left foot drags a little, as the paralysis
had the effect of deadening the nerves.
But I can still walk a good distance,
talk as easily as ever, and my general
health is splendid. I am really over sev
enty years old, although I am generally
taken to be twenty years younger.
"The Pink Pills keep my blood In good
condition, and I believe that is why I
am so well.
Mr. Ware has every appearance of a
perfectly healthy man, and arrives at
his office promptly at eight o'clock ev
ery morning, although he has reached
an age when many men retire from
active life. He says that In his
opinion both his father and grandfather
could have been saved If Pink Pills had
been obtainable at that time.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale Peo
ple contain all the elements necessary to
give new life and richness to the blood
and restore shattered nerves. They may
be had of all drutrsists or direct by mall
from the Dr. Williams' Medicine Co.,

A numerous scene was enacted in the

Watkins defended him, and was about
to open the case with a well prepared
oration of his innocence, when the ne
pro quietly informed the colonel that
he desired o plead puilty. JudpeBeck
according-iy read the law in the case
and sentenced the negro for ten years.
Dumbfounded at this' long" sentence,
the negro rolled his eyes round and
beckoned Colonel Watkins to come for
ward, and when the lawyer reached his
side, the neprro gently whispered: "Say.

William K. Cart is, the Famous Newf
paper Co rre upon dent, Has Learned
that Silver Is Booming Japan Time
for Us to Drop the Knglish Plan.
Japan Correspondence of the Chi
cago Record: Although there Is a
practical illustration of the single sil
ver standard system in national cur
rency in Japan, which affords the deep
est interest to every thoughtful man
who comes here, I have said very lit
tle on the subject, and that has been
only quotations from others, because I
wanted to study it from all possible
points of view. It should be said in
advance for a proper understanding of
the situation that Japan attempted to
maintain a single gold standard when
the government was reformed some
twenty years ago and failed. She then
tried bimetallism, and theoretically
still adheres to that policy, but English
speculators carried away all the gold
long since, and she is now reduced to
paper currency, issued by the govern
ment, redeemable in silver, and there
fore sharing the depreciation and fluc
tuations which that metal has suffered.
When you hold a dollar note of the
bank of Japan or the national bank,
which are two very large financial in
stitutions under the auspices of the
government, it is worth just as much
as a Mexican dollar, which is really
the standard of value in all Asia,
When Japan coined gold it was at par
with Mexican dollars in all the empire,
but the latter coins were at a discount
in the English colonies of Hong-Kong
and Bombay. The speculators of the
latter cities would, therefore, bring to
Japan tons of Mexican dollars and ex
change them In small quantities in dif
ferent cities of the empire for the na
tive gold coin. They did it so secretly
and so skillfully that before the pub
lic was aware of it Japan had been
actually drained of gold and had noth
ing left upon which to base a bi
metallic currency. This trick caused
a suspension of gold coinage, and it has
not since been resumed.
There is no gold in circulation, or in
the public treasury, or in the banks.
You can buy gold coins at the curio
dealers, and of the exchange brokers,
and they make very pretty cuff-buttons
and bangles for bracelets, but
they have ceased to be money and are
only regarded as bric-a-brac. There
Is very little silver in circulation, but
plenty of paper.
The Japan coinage is based on the
decimal system and corresponds with
that of the United States. A rin was
original- the same as a mill. Ten rin
make 1 sen and 100 sen make 1 yen,
which used to be as good as a gold
American dollar, but is now worth
about 51 cents. Therefore, a man who
comes here from the United States or
Europe with money that Is at par with
gold finds his funds almost doubled
immediately. The salary of the United
States minister, which is $12,000 a year,
becomes about 24,000 yen, because a
yen goes just as far in Japan now, ex
cept in the purchase of imported goods,
as it did when it was worth a dollar.
You can get the same amount of food
and fuel, you can employ the same
amount of labor, buy the same amount
of clothing, and rents have not in
creased at all. But all foreign mer
chandise is bought and sold on a gold
basis; that is, it has doubled in value.
A can of American preserved meats
which cost 75 sen a few years ago now
cost m yen. An English hat for which
you once paid 4 yen now costs 8. An
English umbrella for which you paid
5 yen costs 10, and a piano which was
worth 500 yen now costs 1,000. The
natural result is a decrease in the sales
of foreign merchandise and an increase
in the use of domestic articles.
Speaking as one who does nottielieve
in silver money, nor in bimetallism
unless it be universally adopted and all
the nations of the earth agree to main
tain the value of silver, I must, never
theless, admit that it is the uniform
testimony of all concerned that the de
monetization of the white metal by the
repeal of the Bland law In the United
States and the suspension of coinage
in India was a great thing for Japan.
It is a practical question here, and all
persons interested, including officials,
bankers, merchants, manufacturers
and agriculturalists the workingman
does not think, so he cannot be in
cluded are anxious that the agitation
shall continue indefinitely. lest the
present prosperity of the empire ter
minate. A few theorists, arguing from
the standpoint of what ought to be in
stead of what is, insist that Japan shall
join England, the Latin Union and the
United States in an international agree
ment to maintain a certain parity be
tween the metals, but It is by no means
a popular idea. They are college pro
fessors, minority members of parlia
ment, idle men who think and read a
great deal and do nothing, and others
who are entirely without practical ex
perience or a knowledge of trade and
industry. Most of them have been
educated in England and got their
financial notions from reading the
Times and the Economist.
The solid, wise men, who are govern
ing this empire, say: "No; let the debt
ors and the creditors In Europe and
America fight it out. Meantime we will
saw wood. The longer England holds
to a standard the better 'twill be for
Japan. We have no foreign debt. We
owe nothing abroad. Therefore we do
not have to buy gold to pay interest
charges. The import trade is nearly
all in the hands of foreigners, and we
don't care how high foreign manufac
tured merchandise Is. Cotton, iron and
flour will stay down in sympathy with
liver, and it would be a good thing if
nothing but raw materials were Im
ported into Japan."
If the value of gold measured by sil
ver and other commodities continues to
rise the manufacturing industries of
Great Britain will be compelled to re
move to silver-using countries or lose
their markets. There has already been
a very large exodus of cotton manu
facturers from Manchester to India;
and I hear of the early transfer of two
other large cotton interests from Man
chester to Shanghai. The chief mar
kets of Great Britain are silver coun
tries and colonies which will insist
upon paying silver prices for what they
buy as long as they receive silver
wages for their work, or they will
make their own goods. Twenty years
ago, even ten or five years ago, you
could get as much for a silver dollar
in England, as in China or Japan. Now
you can get only half as much. Gold
wages have not fallen in England. Sil
ver wages have not increased in China
or Japan. The results of silver labor,
however, sell for gold prices when they
are shipped abroad. Thus the export
trade Is stimulated in these countries,
and having to pay twice as much as
formerly for foreign merchandise the
people stop buying abroad and supply
their wants at home.
For these reasons you will notice that
India, Japan, Mexico and other silver
countries are not only much more
prosperous at present than the gold
countries of Europe, but their domestic
industries are greatly stimulated. In
fact, financial and commercial depres
sion is almost universal except in the
countries I have mentioned, where
there is nothing but silver money.
Prices in England and the United
States have fallen with silver, particu
larly those of exportable products,
while in Japan they remain the same.
Cotton sells for about one-half what
it did five years ago. Silk, which is cul
tivated with silver wages, brings twice
as much. Transportation charges have
also fallen. Since silver was demone
tized Japan not only gets twice as much
for her silk but pays only half as much
for her cotton and very much less for
freight in taking the one to market
and bringing the other here. While
cotton fabrics are cheaper it is just
as profitable to manufacture them in
Japan, because the raw material and
freights are correspondingly so. There
is no additional cost for food, rent and
other necessaries of life. Wheat and
flour are selling at less than one-half
what they cost in 1875. Rice remains
about the same. The price of labor in
both hemispheres has remained almost
stationary, but from the Japanese
standpoint it has doubled in America
and England, and from the European
standpoint it has been reduced one
half in Japan.
Take the cotton industry as an ex
ample. The Japanese mills still pay
18 and 20 sen a day for male labor and
8 to 10 sen for women. In the United
States the same labor receives $1.50
for men and 75 cents and $1 for women.
But one class is paid in silver: the
other in gold. From a Japanese stand
point the Americans pay $3 and $4 for
men and $1.50 and $2 for women. From
the American standpoint the Japanese
pay 9 and 10 cents for men and 4 and
5 cents for women. However one looks
at it the difference is very wide, but
the fabrics they produce sell for the
same prices the world over. Therefore,
while the outlay of one has doubled,
that of the other has been diminished
by one-half.
The American and European manu
facturer has to pay the same rent, the
same insurance, the same price for fuel,
the same interest on borrowed money
and the same taxes that he did ten
years ago. Therefore the difference be
tween the cost of production now and
then must come out of his dividends,
and only by the most economical and
skillful management can English and
American manufacturers survive. On
the other hand, the Japanese manu
facturer has suffered no increase in
fixed charges or in the cost of labor
and gets double prices for his products.
Where he declared 5 per cent dividends
then he declares 10 per cent dividends
now. The only disadvantage he suf
fers is the enhanced cost of new ma
chinery, but the gold value of ma
chinery has fallen' with the decline of
silver, so that his mill and plant do not
represent more than two-thirds of the
investment that would have been re
quired ten years ago.
The natural and irresistible result of
all this is to attract capital into busi
ness. Old mill3 are being enlarged a:.d
new ones built. The output increases,
competition lowers prices, and the man
who is working on a gold basis suffers
more and more. This explains why
the increase in cotton manufacturing
has been so great in Japan. But it ap
plies in an even greater degree to rice,
which is another great staple, and in
which there is some competition with
the southern states of America. Also
of silk fabrics, paper and stationery,
and many other manufactured prod
ucts. The first cotton mill was erected here
in 1863 with 5,456 spindles. In 1883
there were sixteen mills with 43,700
spindles. In 1894 forty-six mills with
505,419 spindles. There have been seven
new mills with 160,000 spindles already
added this year, and several more are
nearing completion, which will bring
the number of spindles up to 711,000 be
fore January 1, 1896.
The forty mills in the city of Osaka
in 1894 paid an average dividend of 16
per cent. The highest was 28 per cent
and the lowest was 8 per cent. The
difference was due to management. The
yarn mills pay the best.
Great Britain and Germany have suf
fered more than the United States from
the result of silver depreciation, be
cause they have a larger trade abroad
and a more limited market at home.
and they have not only been the vic
tims of honest competition, but of dis
honorable methods. A certain number
of people in Japan, like those you find
the world over, are fond of foreign
goods. It is more a matter of vanity
than of taste. The rise in the prices
of imported merchandise pinched
them, and to meet their demand the
local manufacturers took advantage of
the situation by imitating standard ar
ticles that had been brought from Eu
rope in large quantities. They sto.e
patterns, forged trademarks, produced
goods of an appearance to deceive the
public, and sold them at the old prices.
There was much miserable stuff, but
many of them were wonderful imita
tions. This was the severest blow that
England and Germany have suffered,
for the quality of the bogus articles, as
well as the quantity, has improved by
experience, and the native manufac
turers have got a permanent hold upon
a trade that is very valuable.
That Contained the Names of All the
Mixed Drink Made in New York.
"I wonder," said a Frenchman to a
New York Sun reporter, "that the keep
ers of American bars, who are so fam
ous for mixed drinks, do not have a
printed list of all the potables which
they mix, so that men unfamiliar with
them would know what to ask for. I
mean a list that could be eeen r.t the
bar, like the menu at a restaurant.
Since I came to New York I have in
scribed here upon this leaf of my note
book some words of novelty, among
which ycu may see, if you will look at
it, a flip, a julep, a whisky sour, a cob
bler, a fizz, an eggnog, a sangaree, a
brain-duster, a cup, an alderman's nip,
a stingo, a cooler, a Smith cocktail, a
gin sling, a crusta, a sherbet and a
frozen punch; but I am told that be
sides these peculiar things there are
many others made by the New York
barkeepers. How can any one unlearn
ed in American concoctions recall the
names of all of themT When you go
into a restaurant you look over the
menu for a long time to see what dishes
are upon it, and then you make up your
mi7d to order something you would
never have thought of if you had not
seen its name there. An acceptable
New York friend, who is now.alas! in
Chicago, once took me into a saloon, at
the bar of which he invited me to a
drink that was very tempting. I have
wanted many times to get it again, but
as I am unable to recall its name I do
not know what to ask for. When I told
the barkeeper its color and other pecu
liarities, he said his compositions were
very numerous, but he would fix some
thing for me, which, however, I found
to be very disagreeable. If he had been
able to show me a list of all the mixed
drinks prepared at his bar, I am sure
I could have picked out that one of
them which hr.d previously given me
satisfaction. Print it in your paper that
the barkeeper shall hang up a list of his
specialties, for the instruction of stu
dious strangers, who cannot be expected
to remember the hundreds of words by
which American mixed drinks are
designated in New York."

While angling in a secluded glen the
writer some days ago witnessed a curi
ous combination of poaching and na
tural history. The facts are as follows:
A hill shepherd, in destroying a litter
of foxes, took it into his head to rear
one as a pet. He did so, and the animal
has net only become very tame, but is a
most useful 'ally. It and a collie hunt
ing together kill rabbits to a miracle.
They wcrk very much in the same way
as two lurchers. The coliie goes out
and hunts the rabbits among the fern
and heather of the braes or the rushes
and long grasses of the stacks, while
Reynard all the time sneaks about the
holes and picks them up as they come
in. They understand their respective
parts perfectly. The collie seems to
know that it is not his business to kill
and the fcx is nevr under the slightest
temptation to bolt out and give chase.
