Their retreat had been cut off and the firemen quickly ran up the ladders, but the girls were hemmed in and many fell back into the flames before help could reach them. The iuttammable character of the building hindered the efforts of the liremen It was ascertained that the engineer of the factory, Daniel J.

,i_ SOME POSTAL FIGDRKS. Third Assistant Postmaster-General has made a report of the effect during the first vear of the reduction of letter postage from t^ree cents to two. He says that the actual revenue for the year ended September 30, 1SS4 (the first year during which the reduced rate prevailed), was $42,184,S09, or $7,407,899 less than the estimated revenue upon a three cent rate, and the loss by the reduction of the rate to two cents was $,533,100 less than the estimated loss. The immediate-falling-ull in the issue of postal cards was is.00 per cent,, amounting to S3,034,2S7 cards. Crediting the extra reveuue on letters from the loss ou postal cards with $830,342 of the beneficial results of two-cent -postage would leave $1,907,.592 to be divided between the benefits growing out of the increased number of letters and the substitution of sealed circulars for open ones. He thinks the actual loss in revenue even less than this. In conclusion, Mr. Hazen says: "I will only add that the results of two-cent postage have more than realized the most sanguine expectations of its warmest advocates." He thinks that when the law making the single rate weight limit one ounce instead of a half ounce goes into elfect it will add to the revenues by inducing persons sending light packages to scud them uc ler seal instead of p a n e l rates.

Pbj»Ical Conditions Brought Into Harmony * with the Bible Narrative. ..The quarterly statement of - the Palestine exploration fund for April of this year, says The, London Post, contains an interesting article by Prof. Hull, of Dublin, on "The Relations of Land and Sea in the Isthmus of Suez 'at the Time of the Exodus," wherein he deals with the question of the actual position of the passage pf the Red Sea by the children of Israel. Prof. Hull justly remarks that, according to the present position of land and water, {there is a direct land way across into the wilderness of Etham, and he asks whether, if at the time of the exodus the physical conditions of the district north of Suez had been the same as they are now (of course be disregards for Jthe moment the existence joiLJthe Suez canal), there would have been cause for the cry of despair from the Israelites, or the necessity for the stupendous miracle of deliverance such as the bible narrative relates.

Feeling with him that, according-to this--v4ew-, the phyaieai condi- · tions at the time of the exodus-will be brought into harmony with the bible narrative, and that the difficulty whieh which has hitherto surrounded the subject of the passage of the Israelite* through the Red sea will thus have been to a great extent removed. I have ventured to send you the result of my own recent personal observations, in the hope that the interest of the subject raav secure a place for thisletter in your columns.

PASACAS. It is not to electrify the world by some brilliant performance on the turf that we present the picture'of thesubjact of our sketch on the frontispiece of thd Horseman this week, but to place again before the public one of the grandest horses in general conformation and as a stock horse in Michigan. Pasacas, whose picture appears here, and one that represents him very truly, and for which a great deal of credit is due the artist, is a blood bay stallion, 1 5 | hands high, of wonderful conformation, superior both in quality and substance throughout. Hts sire is the great Almont, son of Alexander's Abdallah; bis dam is Glory, by Jackson's Western Star" by Piatt1* Western star, son of Blacknose, by Medoc, son of American Eclipse, by Duroc, son of imp. Dioined;2d dam by Boanbrges; {Jd dam by Gallatin. He is the property of W. W Starkey, Fovvlervitle, Livingston County, Michigan. While bis career on the turt has been very limited, he has trotted some creditable races. In 1878 he was entered through the Oil Circuit in Pennsylvrnia in the 2:40 class, and trotted his lirstracein in the circuit at Oil City, September l&tfl against John McDougal and Cricket, but was driven for, second place only on account of having suffer» · ed a temporary disability from the efThe Woodchuck at a Weather Prophet.

HZ. « H V « DAUOBUB. Poor Katie 1 A great sufferer she was, tand most patiently did she endure in the hope tha( at last hex sufferings would ' come to an end. She was just budding into womanhood; a fine-looking girl of neatly nineteen, who had, previous to her attack of illness, enjoyed robust health. Let her mother tell the story, as she told it to two of our editorial friends who recently spent an evening at the house. " Katie's illness carae on slowly, with great pain in her thigh and hip* For a while she kept on going to school, but the pains became so severe that she had to stay at home, and most of the time lie down on a little lounge here in the sittingroom. W e tried the beat physicians we could get. The disease banleu them all. One said it was ulceration of the thigh bone, and wanted to have the poor child undergo a terrible operation. It turned out to be sciatic rheumatism. Poor child I h o w the 4id_iuflrJ About four o'clock in the afternoon she would begin screaming with pain. She couldn't help it. She would scream and moan till about four in the morning. Then she , would fail asleep from weariness, and sleep/for some hours. This went on for about eight months. During the nights neither she nor I could sleep. M Katie was a great reader. One day, in a paper, she saw an advertisement, of Athlophoros. j3he asked me to get it and see if it wouldn't cure her. We had tried a good many different things, but I ought we would try this. And I went id got a bottle. I gave her a dose of it towards evening. It was simply wonderful how it quieted the poor child's pain and put her into a gentle sleep. She slept nicely until ten. Then she was in a great perspiration. She waked, and I gave her another dose, for the first one h a d d e u e her so much good. Then she feiTasleep again and slept till morjafigT Her pain was gone. She hadjiafa'tv any returns of U, The Athlophoros did the work for her most completely. £ut the terrible sciatica had drawn Katie's leg up, and made it shorter than* it had been, by several inches. She was lame for life, although the rheumatism was all driven out of her. She had to walk on crutches. One day she fell down stairs ~ahd was so badly hurt that she had to be taken to the hospital. There she suffered a great deal, and after soma weeks she died. > "Father Tscheider, of the Paulist Fathers, saw much of Katie during her illness, and knows all about us. Go and askhim,^and-hewilHeltyonaHabout itr Borne time ago we gave a letter about Katie's case, and it was published. We hTrrhanumeroui i n d i e s i n f e r e n c e to It, all of which we promptly answer. " I must tell you," continued Mrs. Gill, " of our neighbor, Mrs. Summers, and her eleven-year old boy. The boy had one of the most terrible attacks of rheumatism I ever knew a boy to have. I had, a little Athlophoros left in the bottle from which Katie had taken. I gave it to Mrs. Summers, and she gave it to the child who was scream*. ing with pairr. When Mr. Summers came home, he was surprised to find the boy ·ivti.iii uiv, .x«=w from H«"', and cheerfully sitting up, free , w m pain, » " - ^«vw.«.., singing. I wish you would go and see ·uJL e T ^ n ,, i s ,, / ,not f«. fmm here, ^ them. They livo w far from h 0 « on West 12th street, No. 905." Mr. Gill added in his own behalf: ' " I have liad a good deal of rheumatism ' myself, chiefly in my shoulders and arms. But I took Athlophoros and I got rid of . the trouble. I did not have to take much , either. I found the medicine acted very quickly." The Rev. Father Peter Tscheider, assistant pastor of the Church of the Holy Family, was found at his pastoral residence, No. 417 West 12th street, Chicago. Father -Tscheider took pleasure in saying that he knew Mr. and Mrs. Gill, and that he esteemed them highly'; also that he had , seen Katie frequently during her illness, ; and knew all about her wonderful re, covery from sci^ica, and her subsequent injury and her illness at the hospital. If you cannot get ATHLOPHOROS of your druggist, we will sen d4t paid, on receipt..or regular price--ouo aotitir peroottle. t We prefer dollar per UOILH that you bay It from your drug^s>, but If he hasn't it, do not be persuaded to try something else,abut order at once from us, as directed.
