came a violent blow, this time at my door, and ere we could stir came a second,, almost before the echo,; died away.; The door was opened* the 'lights shone bright all down the sta&jf and passages. There was nothing to |be seen;, The next, and for every, succeeding night, precisely at the same, jime,;draie the blows on the door,, jsoraetimes louder, sometimes fainter,! jalways distinct—sometimes two blows,; Igenerally three. My nerves gave way at last, and, on Saturday, on at the .petition of this horror, it made me faint, my doctor ordered me to be at once taken to an hotel, where 1-Have iremained ever since, going home only, during the day. Meanwhile we must give up the house and its furniture ahd decorations at any price. We shall lose a thousand pounds at least, and we suffer all the loss and inconvenience of being turned out of our home. My husband and myself were solely the, occupants of the house, with our ser?' vants. We are neither, superstitious,' spiritualists, nor easily alarmed.” Mr C. Kroll Laporte says ; “ I am no believer in ghosts, yet ‘ there are. more things in heaven and earth, than are dreamt of in our philosophy.’ In October, 1880, ray eldest son, a youth of great promise, left for South America per mail steamer, and reached Rio de Janeiro in safety. During the night of Sunday, November 28, there appeared to me in a dream the wellknown figure of a friend, the late Professor F. Gregory, dead since 1879, who looked at me in Ivs wonted serious manner, and held up a smallpaper, on which I thought I could make out the figures ‘l’or ‘ 2 ’ —l am not sure which. He never spoke a word, but pointed to the paper and then vanished. During that Sunday we all labored under a great depression of spirits, for which there was no apparent cause. On Tuesday, November 30, a cable , telegram announced the sudden death of my son, which happened in the Bay of Botofogo, Rio, on Sunday, the 28th. I immediately communicated my dream to several friends, who can corroborate the fact.”
Holloway’s Ointment and Pills. - Rheumatism and Rheumatic gout are the most dreaded of all diseases, because their victims know they are safe at no season, and at no age secure. Holloway’s Ointment, after fomentation of the painful parts, gives greater relief than any other application ; but it must be diligently fused to obtain this desirable result. It has been highly commended by rheumatic subjects of all ages and of both sexes, for rendering their attacks less frequent and less vigorous, and for repressing the sour persperations and soothing the nerves.- In many cases, Holloway's Ointment and Pills have proved the greatest blessings in removing rheumatism and rheumatic gout which had assailed persons previously and at the prime of life.—[Advt.]
