.Mr. Murphy introduced Mr. 0'IJriea,
who was given an ovation, the applau-e
aud waving of handkerchiefs lasting
several minutes. A large number of
the three thousand people he laced were
fellow-countrymen members of the
Catholic Temperance, societies. After
acknowledging the k ml expressions of
smpath anil encouragement, he said
he was not on the platform of his own
volition, but at the request of friends,
particularly of one who had led him
out of the land of Kgypt and out of the
house of bondage. Applause.

that has its lesson no less than if found
ed on total abstinence premises.
There were, he says, two Jrcgiments
in India, one a remarkably temperate
regiment, the ! iglity-fourth, and m it
the normal death rate was 12.1. There
was another regiment that was not so
temperate though not altogether intem
perate, the Sixty-third, the death rate
of winch was something like 7.2. Now,
thc-e regiment had to inarch from the
same place tn another place, but in
different directions, in a very unhealthy
season. It was very wet. and there was
a good deal of cholera prevailing at the
time. The temperate regiment the
Eighty-fourth, got to the end of its
march without suffering any sickn'-ss.
whereas the sickness which attacked
the SKty-third. or intemperate one,
was so great that it filled all its own
transports and w:is obliged to borrow
the sick palan uins belonging to the
Eighty-fourth. This account ought to
bcpiit up in every soldiers barrack in

It is a prevalent and well-founded bo
lief that clover hay is not a desirable
food for horses, and that it provoke the
common disease known as 'heaves. It
has been supposed that it is the dust in
the hay which produces the disease by
irritating the sensitive lining mem
brane of the bronchial tubes. This
supposition is probably a mistake.
Clover hay is not necessarily dusty, not
nertrly so much so as timothy cut be
fore it is ripe, in which the immature
blossom exi-ts in the form of fine dust,
which, being partly pollen, has a Tcry
irritating effect upon the membranes.
And yet we are recommended to feed
only timothy hay to horses and keep
the clover hay for cows. Now, heaves
is a nervous disorder, and docs not
arise from irritation of the bronchial
membranes. This condition of the mem
branes, with the resulting thickening ol
them and consequent obstruction of the
air passages, produces the disorder
known as roaring, or wheezy, noisy res
piration, but not the heaving of the
Hanks, which is the effect of the spas
modic action of the diaphragm, produced
by disordered nervous ac,;ou, and
which is known as heaves. It is more
probable that the nitrogenous quality
of the clover hay is the real cause of
the disorder, as food rich iu nitrogec
stimulates the nervous system, whilt
food rich in starch, as potatoes, for in
stance, has a very favorable effect upon
a horse that is troubled with heaves.
Cotton-seed-mcal and peas are also
highly nitrogenous foods, and these, il
their use is persisted in, will cause
heaves in a horse in a short time. It is
a valuable thing to know wherein and
how loods differ in respect to their ni
trogenous and carbonaceous character,
for much of their value in feeding de
pends upon litis difference. A. T

THE STAGE-DBITER'S ST0R1.
Hew General Scotfe Uta TTa Saved and
How His Driver Twice Escaped
The traveler of the present day, as he is
hurried along by the lightning express, in
its buffet cars and palace sleepers, seldom
reverts in thought to the tima when the
stage coach and packet were tho only
means of communication between distant
points. It is rare that 0110 of tie real old
time stage drivers is met with now-a-days
and when the writer recently ran across
Fayette Haskell, of Lockport, N. Y., he
felt like a bibliographer over the discovery
of soino rare volume of "forgotten lore."
Mr. Haskell, although one of the pioueers
in stage driving (He formerly ran from
Lowixton to Niagara Falls ana Butfalo) is
hale and beany and bids fair to live for
many years. The strange stories of his
early adventures would fill a volume. At
one time when going down a mountain
near Lvwiston with no less a personage
than General Scott as a passenger, tho
brakes gavo way and the toicb came on
the heels of the wheel horse. Tne only
remedy was to whip the leaders to a gal
lop. Gaining additional momentum with
each revolution of ths wheels the coach
swayed and pitched down the mountain
side and into the streets of Levriston.
Straight ahead at the loot of the hteep hill
flowed the Niagara River, towards whiou
the four horses dashed, apparently to cer
tain death. Yet the firm hand never re
laxed its hold nor the clear brain its con
ception of what must be done in the emer
gency. On dashed the hori-es until tho
narrow dock was reached on the river bank,
when by a masterly exhibition of nerve
and daring, the couch was turned in scarce
its own length and the horses brought to a
stand still before the pale lookers-on could
realize what bad occurred. A puio was
raised by General J-cott and presented to
Mr. Haskell wiih high compliments Tor his
skill and bravery.
Notwithstanding all his strength and
his rubust constitution tho strain of con
tinuous work and exposure proved too
much tor Mr. Haskell's constitution. The
constant jolting of the coach and the neces
sarily cramped position in Tvhich he was
obliged to sit, contributed to this end, and
at times be was obliged to abandon driving
Spoakiug of this period he said:
"I lound it almost impossible to sleep at
night; my at.petito left me emirely and I
had a tired feeling which I never knew be
fore and could not account for."
"Did you give up driving entirely?"
" Xo. 1 tried to keep up but it was only
with the greatest effort. This s:ato of
things continued for nearly twenty years
until last October when I went ull to
"In what way?"
"Oh, I doubled all up; could not walk
without a cane and was incapable of any
effort or exertion. I had a constant deshe
to urinate both day and nightand although
I felt like passing n gallon every ten min
utes only a few drops could ecape and
they thick with sediment. Finally it
ceased to fiw entirely and I thought death
was very near."
" What did you do then?"
"What I should have done long bafore:
listen to nij- wife. Under her advica I be
gan a new treatment. "
"And with what result?"
" Wonderful. It unstopped the closed
passages and what was still more wonder
ful regulated the flow. Tne sediment van
ished: my appetite returned and I am now
well and good for twenty more yearswholly
through the aid of AVarner's Safe Cure
that has done wonders for me as well as
for so many others."
Mr. Haskell's experience is repeated ev
ery day in the lives of thousands of
American men And women. An unknown
evil is undermining the existence ef an in
numerable number who do not realize tin
danger they are in until health has entire
ly departed and doatb perhaps stares them
in the face. To neglect such important
matters is like drifUng in the current of
Niagara al-ovo the Falls.
