l'rejuilico is hard to combat. It cannot bo
overcome inn day. More than likely it wasn't
formed hastily. Indeed it may have been
gradually strengthening its hold for years.
For instance, some folks believe Rheumatism
cannot be cured. Their fathers believed so
before them. So did their grandfathers:
Now, RHEUMATISM CAN BE
CURED, notwithstanding this prejudice,
hut the trouble is to make people think so.
The only way we know to meet popular un
belief is to state the PLAIN FACTS, and
then present the POSITIVE PROOFS
that they are facts. It is a fact that the
RUSSIAN RHEUMATISM CURE
not only relieves but banishes Rheumatic
I'ain. There is positive proof of it too. It
comes from those who have suffered untold
agony with Rheumatism and have been com
pletely cured by this remedy. All who have
tried it have had this experience. Some of
them permit us to print their testimony. It
makes quite a little book, which we send free
to any who are interested enough to ask for it.
A complete Russian Rheumatism Cure,
costs $2. 50. If mailed, 10c. additional. If
registered, ioc. more. You'll never need but
one, so the price isn't high. Who wouldn't
give 52.50 to get rid of Rheumatism ?
As yet it cannot be found at the stores, but can be
had only by enclosing the amount as above, and
addressing the American Proprietors.

Perhaps for the last time in my life
I was taking the breath of an English
twilight, sweetest to those whoso
childhood and youth have fed on tho
rhyme and tale the green old land has
sent to her world-wide brood, and who
come, in riper life, to find tho fancies
of early years warm and living on
every side, in hedge and field, in cow
slip and primrose, in uightiugale and
lark. The thick-coming impressions
such musings bring are vaguo and
dreamy, so that there seemed a shade
of unreality in the quiet voice that bade
mo "Good evening," and added, "Yes,
it is an engaging old house, and it has
a sloiy that you may be glad to hear.''
It was not from perversity that I
turned tho subject, but no tale of real
life could have added interest to tho
fancies with which the old manse had
clad itself in tho slowly waning day.
Wayside impressions loso their phai in
if too much considered, and, as my
new companion was walking toward
Lichfield, I was glad to turn away and
join him, ending a long day's tramp
with tho. Blow and quiet gait that his
age eompeljed. Thero was the least
shade of tho uncanny in his bearing,
and his speech was timorous and gen
tle. His threadbare and seedy look
betokened a native unthrift, but there
was an undercurrent of refinement iu
his mien and in his manner, and trust
ing outlook from his large bhio cyeB
that made him the fittest of compan
ions for a Summer evening's walk in
the country filled with the mingled fla
vor of history and romance.
He was a man of the intensest lo
cal training. To him "the County of
tho City of Lichfield" was of more
consequence than all Staffordshire
besides, and far more than all England
and all that vague entity called tho
World. Even the county of the City
of Lichfield was largo for his concen
trated attachment; he know it as one
must know a small town in which he
has passed the whole of a long life;
but his heart lay within tho cathedral
close, and the cathedral closo lay deep
within his heart, deep and warm,
'with its history and its traditions, its
romance and its reality, so interlaced
'that he had long since ceased to ask
what was real and what unreal. All
was unreal in the sense of being ot
tnorf) than worldly consequence in his
estimation, and all real as a part of tho
training of his whole life.
To him Lichfield cathedral was no
mere pile of sculptured stone, built
round with the facts of recorded his
tory; it was the fairy haudiwork ot
times and scenes long passed, its walls
raised by the hand of pious enthusi
asm, shattered and cemented by the
strife and blood of the oivil war, hal
lowed by the returning glory of the
Restoration, blessed by tho favor of
royal presence, and now made admiia
bio in his daily sight by tho dignity
and grace of those holy men its dean
As it was tho cathedral I had come
to see, and as I had come for no arch
itect's measurements, for no student's
loie, only to bathe in tho charmed at
mospheio of its storied past, I had
fallen upon a guide after ray own
heart, and it was as pleasant as it was
easy to lend full credence to all he so
honestly believed and told.
In earlier life ho had had rjrentler
training, but he had long been a poor
mother ot tlio Hospital ot at. John the
Baptist in Lichfield, and had, for uiaiiv
years, held, by seniority, the right of
iiesenllug a rose, on M. Johns nativ
ty day. to tho heirs of William Juve-
nis (goldsmith), who, by grants made
in consideration of this 'ceremony, had
secured perennial prayers for tho souls
of his ancestors and a fragrant mem
ory lor his own.
Hedged about by tho traditionary
customs and quaint observances of an
ancient charitable foundation, dead
ened in a way, if you please, by the
aristocratio pauperism of his condi
tion, my gcutlo companion had grown
to his present dreamy estate.
As we reached Stow Pool, near tho
old parish church of St. Chad, he
pointed out tho spring of pure water
where, twelve hundred years ago, this
future Uishopof Lichfield who during
his hermit lifo supported himself on
tho milk of a doo was wont to pray
naked iu tho water, etandini? upon tho
stone still seen at tho bottom of tbo
well, and where St. Ovin heard the
nngclt) sing as his good soul passed
Then, with tho trusting look of a
liltlo child, tho poor brother went on
to tell of the virtues and good deeds
of his holy lifei-how even tho king
of tho Mercians, struck with romorso
for the crimes he hid committed, vis
itcd the saint in person, yielded to his
eloquent persuasion, became a convert
to tho truo faith, and banished all
idolatry from his realm; how ho bo
came the head of tho church of Lich
field and laid Its strong foundations of
piety and faith; and how his virtues so
outlived him that his very tomb swab
lowed tlio ill-humors of diseased minds
esorting to its serene presence, that
tho dust from his grave healed all ills
of mm and beast, and' that tho bhrine
built in his honor after his canoniza
tion was so sought by numberless de
votees that Lichfield itself began there
upon to increase and flourish.
To our left, as ho ceased, tho even
ing's lingering glow gilded tho silent
pool, whero lay tho unripplcd reflection
of the threo b pi res of tlio oathedrul,
hardly more uusubstutilial than tho
fairy silhouette that stood clean-cut
against tho Bky, and divldiug with tho
reality tho rnpt admiration of the poor
brother of St. John's.
Wo stood by tho water's edge, and
he turnod toward the phantom spires
reversed within it, his talk wandering
back to tho days of the church's
troubles, when the cathedral closo
was a fortress, with stiong walls and
well-filled moat; when tho beautiful
wt st gate,wbiuh only our own ngo was
vilo enough to detroy, kept stout ward
against tho outer world, and protected
tho favored community who formed
within tho walls a county independent
o Laciitieiit and ol Statlordshire.
Within the sacred pale no law had
forco savo that of tho Ecclesiastical
Court, and then, as now, cono could
thero bo taken for debt or orimo savo
on tho warrant of the dean and
Ho know by heart tho long list of
bishops, and would havo ghdly held
mo to hear of tho good deeds of Lang
ton and Ilackett. IIo was fairly
launched in his favorite enthusiasm,
and told warmly tho moro striking
features of tho church's history, but he
told them rapidly lest I should reach
tho storied pllo with less than a full
apprehension of its tradit'onal inter
est. From his nervous lip, I learned how
King Itiohard II. kept Christmas re
vels hero with a Bplendor that lavished
two hundred tons of wine, and roast
ed two hundred oxen, whoso bones
aro still found in Oxeubury field hard
by; how Elizabeth passed three whole
days iu tho close; aud how the solidity
of its fortification, the consummate
graco and finish of its architecture, tho
richness of its sculpture, and the sur
passing beauty and magnificence of
the nino windows of its lady chapel
marked it as the crowning Ldory of
the Western Ciiurch, until tho dark
days of tho Revolution lowered.
Then its sore trials were recounted, and
1 learned of tlio fanatical attack of
Lord Urooke, "with his horse of impi
ous Kouudheads," made by strango fa
tality on St. Chad's day; of the Bhoot
ing of Lord Urooke by "Dumb Dyolt,"
who was perched in tho steeple with a
fowling piece that now hangs over the
fireplace of Col. Dyott's house; of the
surrender of the close by Lord Ches
terfield, of the sack and bout that fol
lowed; of the recapture by Prince
He told of tho foul desecration bv
the Roundheads, who used every spe
cies of havoc, plunder, aud profana
tion, pulling down the sacred efligieB
which wero the glory of the western
front, hacking to pieces the curious
carvings of tho choir, mashing the
noses of tho monumental statues, de
stroying the valuable evidences and
records of the church and city, shat
tering tho glass ol the costly windows,
savo only that of tho maryellous
nino of tho lady chapel, which a pious
care was said to havo removed to a
place of safety. They kept courts of
guard in the cross aisles, broke up the
pavements, and every day hunted a
cat with hounds throughout tho
church, delighting in tho echoes from
the vaulted roof; they wrapped a calf
in linen, and "in derision and scorn of
tho sacrament of baptism," sprinkled
it at tho font and gave it a name.

alone had a roof under which services
might bo said, how tho good Ilackett
on tbe first day of his bishopric set his
own servants and his own coach-horses
at work removing the rubbish, and
never tired until in eight years' time
the magnificence of the cathedral was
restored, except for tho forever irrepai
able loss of the decorations, and espec
ially of tho lady chapel windows,
which all tlio cost of the restoration
would have sufliced to renew, how
the church was reconsecrated with
great pomp and solemnity, all this ho
told mo in detail, and he would have
gladly told more, for tho poor brother
hail made these low rich lustouo acres
nearly his whole world, and had peo
pled it with all who throughout the
long ages had marred it or had made
it. To have given "two good tiees"
for the rebuilding of the church was a
title to his lasting and grateful recog
nition. But thu light was fast waning, and
tho cathedral must be seen now or per
haps never. It was already pist the
hour for closing, but ono of the verg
ers had formerly been a poor brother
ot M. .lohu s and my companion went
to him to Eeonro our admission.
I stood beforo tho west front of tho
cathedral, which was then bathed in
tho lingering light of the after-day, its
great central window gleaming as
though tho altar lamps were burning
behind it, and tho western sp'.res almost
losing themselves iu tho sky. Tho
quaint cfllgies that fill tho niches acioss
tho whole facade lost their grolisqiie
ness in tho dusk, and seemed really
the sacred sculptures they wero meant
to be. Fair though this rich lront
must be af high midday, it needs for
its full beauty tho half-light of s North

of all evenings, it was a fit introduc

An Interesting Eomance.
IN WHICH UNITED STATES MlNlSTEI!
STON AT PERSIA l'KO.MINENTl.Y
Minister WinBton, who now repre
sents the United States at tho court
of Persia, is thb hero of an interesting
romance, the other principal being
Miss Calhoun, a granddaughter of the
great South Carolinian, John C. Cal
houn. They met whilo crossing tho
ocean iu a Cunarder for a European
trip, and although the senior of the
young lady, Mr. Winston became very
much attached to her and made no
seerot of his being matrimonially in
clined Ho did not hesitate to declare
that he was a widower with six chil
dren, one of whom was married, but
assured her of his undying love, al
though she was but twenty-four and
might readily pars for one of his
daughters. At this limn Mr. Winston
was considering tho offer of iho Per
sian mission, but had not madu up his
mind ou the subject. Miss Calhoun
had letters of introduction which gave
her admission lo thu best circles of
London society and thero she frequent
ly mot her adorer, who was persistent
and patient. Finally both left Loudon
for Paris, and in tho gay French capi
tal a formal proposal ot marriage was
made. Tho young lady said that while
thero was a great disparity in their
ages, still she was not unmindful of
tlio honor which her rich countryman
desired to bestow upon her, and would
consider the matter upou her return to
Loudon. Incidentally tho Persian
mission was roforred to in one of tho
interviews between.them, and, besides,
there was settled upon tho young lady
8100,000, unconditionally, leaving her
freo to accept or reject tho suit.

and after consultation with her friends
wroto to Mr. Winston at Paris that
she would consent to become his wife
if ho would accept the Persian mission.
This was not a difficult matter for the
groom-expectant, and ho at onco cabled
thu statu department that he was will

Teheran. Then tho now minister had
au agreement drawn up for Miss Cal
houn to sign, iu which she signified

either at leheran or aboard tho United
States steamer Pcusacola at Constanti

on the ship was overturned, although,
Minister Winston exerted all his pow

Sultan, but upon others high in auth
ority, to obtain a special permit for
tho l'cnsacola to anchor oil tho Golden
Horn. According fo the terms of the
Agreement Miss Calhoun was to bo

Constantinople is vi-ry much interested
iu the wedding arrangements and tho

will tuako good his boasts to have a
reception which will make tbe Turks
open their eyes, for it is understood
that Constantinople will be tho scene
of tho wedding. The eldest son of
Minister Winston accompanies his fath
erland the inference is that the match
meets with his approval, as he is a
prominent figure iu the preliminaries.
Minister Winston hails trora Chicago
and it must bo admitted that his pres
ent scheme for cutting a dash among
the Eastern monarchies is a deoided
improvement on his first attempt.
When ho was given thu Persian mis
sion by thu president, soma ono throw
a damper on tho Oriental splendor In
view by mentioning tho fact that our
department of state did not permit its
foreign representatives to appear at
courts abroad iu any regalia bur. the
plain North American dress suit. This
would appear rather lame on a back
ground of Peisiau luxury, so tho new
diplomat, by connivauco with Gov.
Oglcsby, of Illinois, devised a plan by
which he could be appointed coloneh
of an Illinois militia regiment, a posi
tion that combines indolence with the
glamour of martial regimentals, gold
lace, sword, &c. At the same time his
son, who was to bo a minor feature of
the American pageant at Teheran, was
to be assigned a subaltern's rank in tho
same fierce illliuois battalion, and to

CLEVELAND THE ONLY ONE ENTIRELY

President Cleveland is the only
President in our history who seems to
have nn amusements whatsoever.
George Washington was noted for bis
muscular development. IIo was fond
of jumping, and to tho last day of his
life kept a pack of hounds for bunting.
Ho could dance upon occasion, an'd ho
was careful enough of his hcaltu to go
lo bed every night at 10 o'clock. Jef
ferson was a great horseback rider,
and he rode throughout the country
about Washington daily during his
Presidency. IIo usually spent two
hours in the saddle, and ho was fond
of mixing with his fellows. At his
home at Monticcllo ho paid great at
tention to farming, and he often walk
ed about the rtieels- of Washington
whilo in tho White House.
When Cleveland was inaugurated
the ptess was full of wonder at Ids get
ting up for breakfast at 8 o'clock in
the morning, and the wholo nation
patted him on the back for it, as it
were. Still Washington got up at
daybread, aud Jefferson crawled out
as soon as thu light struck his ubamber.
John Adams, who was as lat propor
tionately as Cleveland is, used to tako
a walk fiom the White House around
the Capitol befoiu his breakfast, which,
by the way, bo took as eiiily as Cleve
land, and his son, John Qtiinoy Adams,
was wont to go down to tho 1 otomao

Both of tho Adamses wero ureal
walkers,and while John Quincy Adams
was President he used to walk uttt to
tho race com se, two mlhs fiom here,
and back again whenever any giea'j
sport was on hand. Andrew Jackson
was a hard woiker, but he was a demo
cratic f(llow,aud ho liked hoise racing,
cock lighting, and a gonti social smoke.
Ho ollen attended the cock lights ou
the Washington Height, above Six
teenth street, and at one ot the great
races of tho days ot his Presidency he
bad a horse of his own admitted in tho
name of his pilvato secretary, Major
Donelson. President Harrison was a
great walker, and ho did much of his
own marketing during his short Btay
in the lute House. Ho would get
up and go to market beforo breakfast,
and, though ho was an old man, ho
often went about without an overcoat.
Frank Pierco was another great horse
back rider, and ho was accustomed to
gallop through tho sticcts of Washing
ton at midnight ou a fine blooded
steed, Buchanan was a great beau
socially, and ho did some walking.

was not uncommon to see him on tho

a box was always reserved for him.
Grunt walked up and down tho broad

his lovo of horses and driving amount

to having fellows call'iipon him in tho
