KdUor Ttlegrap\: Seeing Mr. Randolph's request for an arithmetical solution of the "Philosopher's :;Pux- rle', and another question I send a-solution of each. The fractions must be added and before they can be added they must be reduced to a common denominator or made alike. l-2xl-4xl-7equal 14-28x7-28x4-28 equal 25-28. To reduce K to SB's each term must be multiplied by 14, eaob term of the next fraction by 7, and each term of the last by 4. I have not changed tbe value of these fractions, because both numerators and denominators ^liaye been multiplied by the same number/ Trie whole number or all ot bis scholars must be 28 28, and as we have found tbat the others equal 2.V2B, then the thiee female pupils must equal the lacking S 2S,tben 1 have 14-28x7 28x4-28x8-28 equal 28-23, or the whole number. Then there'were 28 scholars. 2 If the third of six Is three, what will the fourth ut twenty be? Tho real third ol tlx Is 2, and the supposed third Is three, or a real third plus }i of a ran third, or >> ol >J of 6 e, 0-6 or 1. Then we have 2 a real third of elx plus 1 which Is Jf.of a rual third of six which la l;2zl e. > g - of sixbysuppo aitlon. Tbe same reasoning w lll.npply to 20 tbe second partof the question. A real fourth ol .20 is B then tho supposed fourth IB 6 plus.X o! S 2)i; 6xIK e. 7>i. Therefore if the third ot six 1 j thi ee the fourth of twenty is 7>i. ABEL. H. STANHOPE. BETUALTO.

', Hood's Sarsaparilla " In the winter of 18T91 was attacked with Scrofula In one of the most aggravating forma, At one time I hadino less than thirteen large abscesses over and'around my neck and throat, continually exuding an offensive mass of bloody matter disgusting to behold,. and almost Intolerable to endure. It Is impossible to fully describe my sufferings, as the ease was complicated with Chronic Catarrh. After three years of misery, having been treated by three physlclonu) I was worse than ever. Finally, on the recommendation of V7. J. Huntley, druggist, ot Lockport, I was Induced to try Hood's Sarsaparilla, And how, after having taken twelve tottlei, within the last twelve months, the scrofulous eruptions have entirely ceased, and the abscesses have all disappeared, except the unsightly scars, which are dally becoming.'smaller by degrees, and beautifully leu.' I do not know what It may have done for others, but I do know that In nry case, Hood's Sarsaparilla has proved an effective specific Indeed. As an evidence of my gratitude I tend these facts unsolicited, and S am ready-to verily the authenticity ot this cure, by personal correspondence with any ope who doubts It.". CBAHLBD A.

Ears and Scalp Covered witli EC- zcma'tous Scabs and Sores Cnr«il by Outlcara. -. M l little son, aged ck'ht years, nos been at fllcted with Kvzema of th? scalp, and at times a (treat portion of the body, ever since be was two years old. It began in his ears, and extended to his scalp,which became covered with scabs'and sores, and from which a ntloky fluid poured out. causing Intense Itching and distress, and leaving his • balr matted and lifeless. Underneath these scabs the akin was litw, like a piece, of beefsteak. Gradually the hair came out' and was destroyed, until but a small patch was left at tho back of the head. My triends in Peabodv know ho* my little boy haa suffered. At night he would scratch bis head until his pillow was covered with blood.: I need to tie his bands behind -him,' and in many ways tried to prevent his scratching: but It was no use, he would scratch. 1 took him to the hospital anil to the best physicians in Peabody without success. 'About this time, some friands, who bad. been cured, by tho Cutionra Remoille-, prevailed.upon me to try them, l began to us« them-or. the lithof January last. In seven months every particle ol the disease wan removed.' Not a spot or scab remains on his scalp to tell the 'story of his suffering. Ills hair has returned, anc Is thick and strong, and his scalp as sweet and clean as any child's tn the world, l cannot say enough to express. my gratitude for this wonderful cure by the CuUourH Remedies, and wish all similarly afflicted to know that my statement Is ti ue and without exaggeration.
