On a Day in january thirty two years ago the people of Madison Village me., were fighting fire. The West wind blew a Hurricane the tavern and an adjoining dwelling House had already burned to the ground and the entire Village was threatened. The congregational Church stood in direct line with the fire but the wide Village Green might save it. Hundreds of anxious eyes were on the watch lest some spark or live cinder should fall upon its exposed roof and Walls which were kept drenched with water. A blazing cinder whirled High across the Green and a Strong sucking current of air carried it and held it against a clapboard of the tall Steeple held it until the dry pitch filled strip of Wood ignited and a brisk smoke was rising on the steeples South face. A groan burst from the watching crowd. No ladder could reach the spot and the loved Church must Burn. A red Tongue of flame shot out from the blackened Hole that the live cinder had charred then Whiz went a flying snowball up from the crowd a single big moist snowball that snuffed out that Blaze As one snuffs out a Candle. Warren Bacon with his Good right left hand had quickly shaped and thrown the snowball and the Church was saved. The building still stands and the pierced clipboards on the South Side of the Steeple still show where the blazing cinder and then the flying snowball struck. Jewish emigration. Jewish emigration is one that vitally concerns the people of the United states. Last year the number of hebrews who came to the ports of the United states was 70,000, and this year the number will be much greater. There Are 6,000,000 of the jewish race in Russia and russian Poland and the government of the Czar is determined to drive them away from these places. Whither shall these people go there is considerable talk of some of them going to Brazil the Argentine Republic Mexico and other Spanish american countries but it is in the United states that they desire to Settle. This is a serious consideration for americans. The jewish people do not amalgamate with the people of this country they form colonies of their own and they care not to learn of our language our institutions or our industries. It is probable that within three years there will come to this country More than 1,000,000 jews. What can the United states government do for the regulation of emigration of this kind is a question that however interesting cannot now be solved. Not Worth so much himself.

Castoria has met with i denounced fault r on the part of physicians pharmaceutical societies and medical authorities. It is used by physicians with results. Most Gratifying. The present extended use of Castoria is unquestionably the result of three facts the indisputable evidence that it is harmless 2d, that it not Only allays stomach pains and quiets the nerves but assimilates the food and 3d, it is an agreeable and perfect substitute for Castor Oil. It is absolutely Safe. It does not contain any opium morphine or other narcotics unlike soothing syrup Bateman a drops Godfrey a cordial &c., it does not Stupey. This is a Good Deal for a medical journal to say. Our duty however is to expose danger and record the Means of advancing health. The Day for poisoning innocent children through greed or ignorance ought to end. To our knowledge Castoria is a remedy which produces composure and health by regulating the system not stupefying it and and our readers Are entitled to the journal of health.
