Every now and then we hear of some wonder ful case of a man or a woman existing for a long time without food or drink. Sometimes th? re is an appearance of suspended animation, during which, of coarse, the digestive functions are suspended. At other times there are oonvul sions or spasms, as in the marvellous case, lately reported, of Mrs llaya, of Warren oountry, N. Y.. who has had *' fits. c -avulsions, spasms, contortions and tremors" for more than two yean. luring all which time, says the veracious chronicler of the oaae. she has not eaten enough to make one ordinary meal for a healthy person ! Lately, too. she has taken to doing without breathing for a considerable length of time, and altogether Mrs Hays must be a very extraordi nary woman, and, barring the fit*, must be a very eheap and economical wife for the hard time*. A lady who don't eat or drink, and whose breathing?and, p*r eonstquene*. talking too?have gone into suspension, would be a treasure to a merchant threatened with sus pension. But all suoh cases are, if not totally fabulous, at least much exaggerated, and they prove nothing in regard to the general ability of hu man nature to do without food. They are uet to be mentioned, as philosophical illustrations, at the same time with the marvellous and au thenticated case of Tice, Dawson and Orant, who existed at sea for eight days and twenty bours without food, and the greater part of the time without water also. During all this pe riod their physical powers wero taxed to an ex traordinary degree to keep themselves ad >at, and ttey mast have been still more embar rassed and exhausted by the constant dashing of the salt wafer in their faces and down their throats. How any man could live in this way. for a day alone, is astonishing; but that they should live thus for nine days fairly Confounds all pre-conceived notion of human endurance. If one man had survived such a fearful ordeal, we might have set it down as an exception case, and treated him as something superhuman But when three men in. almost precisely the same situation, live through so long a period without food or drink it is proved that the human system can endure privations exceeding any that have ever been imagined. We may ?uppo?o that the immersion iu salt water may have enabled them to absorb some kind of sustenance: but the vtomaoh and the digestive organs, during all that period, raeeivea nothing whatever except ?alt water, whirh was nauseating and at laat a little fresh water oollected during a rain. Here i* something for medical men and phil osophers to inquire into, for there has evident ly r>?en a miscalculation of man s powers of en durance. not only of hnager but of fatigue and exposure. If the stories of Tice. Grant and Dawson are true, then death from starvation cannot tome half so speedily as has always been supposed. A man may be tossed about and bu netted by the waves, with sleep as unattain able as food or drink, and yet live through it for days. Solve us this wondrous problem, and in so doing. convince us that we, who cat our bread, beef and vegetables daily, are doing so maeh more than the actual necessities of exis tence require, that we des?rve to be classed Among the intemperate ?Phtla Bulletin.

Mr. Knwwrpv. of Roxbnrr. lias discovered id ?>oe of oar common pasture wm-J* a remedy tha' cores XVBIT KIND Or HIMUg, from Tk* worst Scrofula dorr* to a common Ptmrh. He has tried it in over eleven hundred oase?.?!,d never failed exoept in two naaes. i?>tti Thunder 11m mor. He itasnow in ins possession over one hundred oertihoates of itsraiue.all within twenty ini<es of Boston. Two tiottles are warranted to cure a cursing Sore Month. One to three bottles will care the worst kind of Pimples on the Face. Twoor three botties will clear the syarem of Hnos. Two bottles are warranted to cure the worst Canker in the Mouth and Stomach. Three to live l?o'i!?>s ars warranted to cure the Worst kind of Erysipeia*. One or two bottles are warni ted lo oareall Hu mor in the Eyes. Two Itottler. are warranted to cure Running of the Ears and Blotches among tbe Hair. Four to six Nttries are warranted to care oorrupt and running Ulosra. Mne Untie will oure Scaly Eruptions of the Skm. Twoor thre* forties are warranted to cure tbe Worst kind of Ringworm. Twoor three bottles are warranted to eure the most most ittfperale case of R heuma'tsm. Thrse to four tiottles are aarrantsd to cure Salt rheum. Five to eight bottles will cure the worst aaee of Scrofula. A benefit is always experienced from the first hot tie, and a perfect enrs is warranted when the above quantity is taksn. Nothing looks so improbable to th<?se whe have ia rain tried all the wonderful medicines of the day. as that a oommon weed growing on the pastures and along old stone wails, should curesven liiftn< r in t he system ; yet it is a fixed fact. If *?.u bsvc a humor, it has to start. There are no 1FS nor A N DS, boms nor ba's al*>ut it suiting some cases, t utlnot yours. I seddled over a thousand bottles of it in tlie vicinity of Boston. I know the effects of it :n evsry oass. It has already dons some of the greatest cures ever done in Massachusetts. I gave it to children r, tear oid. to o.d peopis of sixty. I lisve eeen poor.jniiiy, wormy-looking children, whose flesh was soft aod flal>by, restored to a perfect state of health b? one bottle. To those who are snt^ect to a siok headache, ore bottle will always cure it. It gives great relief m eatarrh and dixziuess. Some who have token it bad been costive for years, and have been regulated by it. WThere the liody le sound it works quite eas*. but where there is any derangement of the |uneti<ns of will oause very singular fee'mgs. but you must not be alarmed; they always disappear in fmm four days to a week. There is never a fy?d re sult from it; oa the oontra^. when that fee ing is Cone, you will feel yourself like a new person. I eard some of the moet extravagant eaoommms of it that ever man listened to. In my own practice I always kept it etnetly for hu mors?nut since its introduction as a general fHmiw medicine, great and wonderful virtues have l?en fosnd in it that I never suspeoted. Several cases of epileptio lits?a disease whioh was always considered insurable, have been cured t* a few bottles. O. what a mercy if it will prove effec tual in all cases of that awful nta'ady? there are oat few who have seen more <?f it than 1 have. I know of several caseeof Dropsy, ali of them tfed ?sople eured by it. For tbe various dise^see of the Liver, Sick Headache. Dyspepsia, Asthma. Fsvsr and Ague. Pain in the Side, Diseases of ten Spine, aad partisularly in Diseases of the Kidneys, ft the disoovsry has done more gin>d then any niedtotne ever known.
