A New Year's Greeting.
BY CHRISTIAN RETD.
"A happy New YearP' Soi we lightly cry
To those around. In careless. Idle phrase
But, ah! what years are happy 'neath the sky?
Whose paths are altogether pleasant ways?
And so to you, my friend, I fain would give
Another greeting for the coming year
A greeting that through all Its days may live
As tender music lingers on the ear.
We know the year that holds the summer's prime
Holds, too, the winter's icy storm and frost.
The changing blasts of spring's capricious time,
The mellow autumn, when the world Is lost
In beauty like a dream, when golden days
Fall softly on us with the falling leaves,
And pgrple hills are wrapped in radiant haze,
Like the enchanted mist that Fancy weaves.
So, too, the years of changing human life
Hold many a season clasped In their embrace
Days bright with hope, days dark with weary strife,
And days serene with fair, pathetic grace.
Shall I, who fain would call upon your way
Life's highest blessing, wish for smiles alone
From sunny skies on flowery meadows? Nay,
Not so God blesses those He makes His own.
Souls lapped in glowing sunshine seldom rise
To face unblended the driving storm and rain;
And hearts most truly and most gently wise
Have learned their wisdom in tfie school of pain.
Therefore, O steadfast soul! I ask for you
Courage and strength to meet the fiercest blast;
And God's best sunshine, faithful heart and true,
To gild your pathway when the storm is past.
Garlic is said to be a sovereign remedy for gout
There Is no remedy for garlic. '

A French paper reports a murder trial in which
a witness testified that he heard two pistol shots on
the staircase, and sent his wife to see what was the

A London hotel keeper charged his bill, "Swans,

THE BRAZILIAN FAMINE.
in the Northern
Capt. William Weir of the steamer
City of liio Janeiro, which arrived at
New York from Brazil, Friday, says
that just before he sailed for New York
he met a man from Ceara, the famine
stricken region in northern Brazil, who
told him that the people there were dy
ing so fast that it was impossible to
make coffins to supply the demand, and
that they dug ditches and tumbled the
unshxouded corpses into them, eight or
ten at a time. The deaths from small
pox were as high as 500 and 600 daily in
Ceara alone, and it was with great diffi
culty that persons could be found to
convey the dead bodies to the ditches in
which they were buried. The city was
crowded, when the smallpox broke out,
with refugees from the interior of the
province, who had been driven in by
the terrible famine which desolated it a
few months ago. Among these refu
gees, already weakened by the famine,
the smallpox raged with fearful viru
lence. The Brazilian government is doing all
in its power to alleviate the distress, for
the country outside of Ceara suffered
less than tne city itself, simply because
there were fewer people to be attacked.
During t$ie famine the government sent
away all the people they could (about
30,000), scattering them nearly all over
Brazil. One thousand were sent to
Para, where tb,ey were employed by the
Covins Brothers in the construction of
the Mamore Railroad. Captain Weir
says that wSiile the smallpox in Ceara
cannot be exaggerated, there is no truth
in the report that the people in the in
terior of the province are compelled to
devour carrion and corpses. The in
habitants left in the country are so f ew
that the government now has no diffi
culty in supplying them with aU the
food they require.
Of th Americans who went to Bra
zil to work upon the Mamore Railroad,
not more than seventy are still at woru
The remainder have scattered in all di
rections, finding it impossible to accom
modate themselves to tne climate ana

pay their passage are returning home as
fast as they can, but a large majority
cannot get enough ahead to take them

Two gisters' New Year's Quarrel,
New York Sun; 2d.
On new year's eve Mrs. Susan Reilly
of North Fifth, near Fifth street, Wil
liamsburgh, and her sister quarrelled
about a new dress that Mr. Reilly's step
father had given her. The sister want
ed to wear the dress to a ball, telling
Mrs. Susan that her widow's dress was
stylish enough for her. Mrs. Reilly,
however, wore the dress.
"When w got home in the morning,"
said Mrs.1 Reilly last night to the sur-

'she (tier sister) broke al the prockery

HARD LTNES ON THE TRACK
SOME DIFFICULTIES WHICH BESET MRS.
The Curiosily of Brooklyn Women The Little
Room Behind the English Flag How the
Pedestrienne Sleeps Recuperating.
New York Sun, 2d.
The main points of attraction to the
visitor after entering the hall where
Mrs. Anderson is now descending the
graae in tne iasi nan oi ner arduous
task, are two large flags hanging in folds
at the right and left of the small stage
at the head of the track. The Stars and
Stripes drape the left. On the right is
the flag of old England. Under the lat
ter flag is the little door leading to Mrs.
Anaerson s room, as she progresses in
her walk many pairs of eyes are turned
toward that door every time the bell
summons her to appear. As the door
opens for the pedestrienne to step out,
men and women endeavor to penetrate
the hidden mysteries of her retreat. If
they had been in the room vesterdav
they would have seen the muscular
woman with a pallid face, sleeping on
her right side; her arm extended over
the side of her bed, the hand tightly
clenched, and her eyelids twitching at
times from the light which Doured in
from the high windows of her sleeping
. J ! A i 1 . 1 .
anu cooKing apartment, one Dreatneci
regularly and slept soundlv at intervals.
The bell has no terrors for her, for the
clanging failed to penetrate her tired
ears, which had been filled with yells
and shouts and blaring music the night
before on the completion of her 1,457th
quarter in the fast time of 3.29M. Her
attendants, however, were keeniv alive
to the knell, it seemed to come so terri
bly often. ,They would slip their hands
unaer her shoulders, raise her to a sit
ting posture, turn her limbs off the bed,
and then slide her on her feet. Her
heavy eyelids would open a little, when,
nair asleep, sne would grope tor the
door and follow her coach on the track.
During several rounds in the past for
ty-eight hours she has at times grazed
the railing and wall in a dazed manner,
and appeared to be on the point of
breaking down. This, her attendants
say, is only the re-action from overdue
excitement on Monday and New Yearns
night, and that she will soon be strong
er than ever. Later on in the evening
this proved to be correct, for she gained
in vigor, and seemed to be infused with
During the early morning, afternoon
and evening many ladies of Brooklyn
visited the garden. Thev were curious
to learn all about the pedestrienne, and
the general belief was that it would be
impossible for the woman to finish her
promised performance. One woman
said : I did not think it possible for
her to accomplish what she has alreadv
Another ladv accosted a woman
friend, who had. just left Mrs. Ander
son's room, with the inquiry whether
Mi's. Anderson would see her. On be
ing informed that the attendants desir
ed to have her alone as much as possi
ble, the lady remarked : " I came with
my husband this morning, but grew so
much interested that I had to return."
Several women remained in the hall
all night. Some of them came from the
New i ear s balls in the neighborhood.
One of them stayed until 8 in the mor
ning. An editor of a leading sporting
newspaper remained in Mrs. Anderson's
room through the night. He believed
there must be some deception and he
was determined to see for himself. He
became perfectly satisfied that every
thing was conducted on the square, and
that the woman was getting a fair re
cord. This was what Mrs. Anderson
requested at the start. She said her re
cords had always been doubted by some
who had not seen her walk. So far the
representatives of at least two newspa
pers have been present throughout eve
ry hour of her walk from the start. The
only instance she has been a shade be
hind the time prescribed for her to ap
pear was at 11 o'clock yesterday morn
ing. Her attendants were robing her
after a bath, and she was necessarily 13
seconds late on reaching the track. She
walked the quarter in 5.04), having 9
minutes to spare before starting on the
next quarter mile. There are three
watches on the timers' table, and two
of the record keepers insist that even
with the delay caused by her women,
she was exactly on time.
She made very fast time under the
circumstances on entering the year '79,
going over her first quarter, the 1,457th,
in 3.29, and the next one in 3.45. She
walked her 365th mile in I6.54i, the
366th in 20.32, and the 367th in 20.56.
A little after midnight on New Year's
she said she felt like giving the com?
pany something jolly. She then stepped
on the stage and sang "Thompkins'
Coming Home at 2 O'clock in the Morn
ing " with imitations. She did it well,
receiving hearty applause.
Yesterday afternoon she was walking
with apparent vigor, going over the
1,510th quarter at 3.46 in 44.
At 8.46 she labored over her 385th
mile in 20.55.
She drew her feet around the 1,544th
quarter at 9.45 in 5.30M- At 10 o'clock
f she was a very tired woman; at times
her teet seemed anchored to the track.
She only raised them enough to clear
the ground, and was 6.19I in creeping
over her seven laps. She glided like a
heavy ghost over the next quarter in
6.04. Even the applause on her last lap
failed to quicken her almost benumbed
Mr. Henry, her trainer, said: "She's
sleeping now ; in two hours she'll come
out with the spring of a gazelle."

Every Moment Wonderful Work.
Every moment that we live the work of destruc
tion never ceases among wnai is scienuncauy call
ed 'the tissues" of which our bodies are composed.
Every moment if we are In health, the work of re
pairing this destructive process goes on with equal
pace. When the vital force is great more vigor is
given to the blood and muscular fibre than the or
dinary wear and tear of existence uses up. When
the vital force falls from any cause, there ensues a
wasting away, which If not arrested, ends in decay
and death. Physicians all declare that when these
symptoms of decline set in. the only certain reme
dy is Cod Liver OIL But their patients, with al
most equal unanimity, say that Cod Liver Oil is "so
nasty" they cannot take it The only resource left
is to obtain Scott's Emulsion of the Oil with the
Hypophosphltes of Lime and Soda. This is alto
gether free from disagreeable: taste and odor, and
is an unequalled tonic, for the nerves and brain.
WILL CURB RHEUMATISM..
Mr. Albert Crooker, the well-known druggist and
Apothecary, of Springvale, Me., always advises
every one troubled with Rheumatism to try VEGE
TENE. BEAD HIS STATEMENT:
Springvale, Me., Oct 12, 1876.
Mr. EL R. Stevens:
Dear Sir Fifteen years ago last fall I was taken
sick with rheumatism, was unable to move until
the next April. From that time until three years
ago this fall I suffered everything with rheumatism.
Sometimes there would be weeks at a time that I
could not step one step; these attacks were quite
often. I 8ufiered everything that a man could.
Over three years ago last spring I commenced tak
ing VEGETINE and followed it up until I had tak
en seven bottles; have had no rheumatism since
that time. I always advise every one that is trou
bled with rheumatism to try VEGETINE, and not
suffer for years as I have done. This statement Is
gratuitous as far as Mr. Stevens Is concerned.
Yours, ALBERT CROOKER

HAS ENTIRELY CURED ME.
Boston, Oct, 1876.
Mr. EL R. Stevens:
Dear Sir My daughter, after having a severe at
tark of Whooping, Cough, was left In a feeble state
of health. Being advised by a frielid she tried the
VEGETINE, and after using a few bottles was ful
ly restored to health.
I have been a great sufferer from Rheumatism.
I have taken several Lotties of the VEGETINE for
this complaint, and am happy to say it has entirely
cured me. I have recommended the VEGETINE
to others with the same good results. It Is a great
cleanser and purifier of the blood; it is pleasant to
take and I can cheerfully recommend It
JAMES MORSE, 364 Athens street
RHEUMATISM IS A DISEASE OF THE BLOOD.
The blood in this d'sease Is found to contain an
excess of flbrim. VEGETINE acts by converting
the blood from its diseased condition to a healthy
circulation. VEGETINE regulates the bowels
which Is very Important In this complaint One
bottle of Vegetine will give relief; but to effect a
permanent cure, it must be taken regularly, and
may take several bottles, especially In cases of
long standing. Vegetine is sold by all Druggists.
Try It and your verdict will be the same as that of
thousands before you. who say, "I never found so
much relief as from the use of Vegetine," which Is
composed exclusively of barks, roots and herbs.
"VEGETINE," says a Boston physician, "has no
equal as a blood purifier. Hearing of Its many
wonderful cures, after other remedies had failed, I
visited the laboratory and convinced myself of its
genuine merit It is prepared from barks, roots
and herbs, each of which Is highly effective, and
they are compounded In such a manner as to
produce astonishing results."
NOTHING EQUAL TO IT.
South Salem, Mass., Nov. 14, 1876.
Mr. H. R, Stevens:
Dear Sir I have been troubled wifh Scrofula,
Cancer and Liver Complaint for three years. Noth
ing ever did me any good until I commenced using
Vegetine. I am now getting along first-rate, and
still using the Vegetine. I consider there is noth
ing equal to It for such complaints. Can heartily
recommend it to everybody. Yours truly.
