is repeated. Thi*. is carried to such extent that the hotel tables are neglected.
Living steadily on ice cream gives a certain interesting pile expression which it
is popular for the young people to affect.

music, under the charge of Mr, D. McAllister, ably assisted by Messrs Roy,
 and Jones was first class. An excellent supper was sat down to, to which
ample justice was done.
The guests left at 4 a. m. after first con
gratulating thc Lindsays on the unqualified success of what they were pleased
to denominate as the most delightful party
of the season.
A Public Greviance,
Editor New*;
Mr. 8. Creech, the Gov. agent, enn.
tinues to progress steadily for the worst,
and if the Onvt-runv-nt bad been thoroughly
acquainted with hia unfair wav of doing
thinga they aurely would never have allowed him to sot the tyrant at long aa be haa
done. A abort time ago he put ont public
���otice inviting tenders for work to be done
on Tn-Mum River and Black Creek roads.
Tho firxt half mile on Tsolum River mad
waa not freihly blazed nor marked in any
way ao that a stranger could find it or follow it,���very probably for the purpose of
preventing anybody from tendering wbo
was not is hia circle. But finding himself
defeated io hia unfair purpose, he resorted
to another device. On the evening of tbe
Oth instant 1 went to bia bouse in company
with another gentleman, to aee him and as
the time for the tenders waa already op I
ventured to ask him whether be intended to
open the tenders that evening aa I felt anxious to Mara my luck, but he said he con Id
not open them tbat eight aa he had a lot of
writing to do He further told me tbat
word would be sent to the tenderers aome
time next week concerning the result. But
that snme night after I left his house he
opened the tenders and some of hia favorites
were telling it early the next m-irninir that
he made known to certain onea that he
only opened the tenders to know the figures
or the tenderers' prioe, and had seat these
prices to Headquarters, He did not send
tha sealed tenders below which would have
been an honorable way. No doubt there
was something rotten in thia matter by the
way he acted from the beginning, Now
why wai he not frauk and truthful witb me
that night when I asked him about the t**n*
dere! You see he opened the tenders that
night after I went away and did uot let me
know anything about the tenders needing to
go below to Headquarters for further consideration. Why should Mr. Creech open
the tenders at all, seeing that the figures
hail to tro below before the work would he
decided upon? Every man in that caae
ahmdd have sent his tenders direct to Victoria where there would be nothing to fear.
Mr. Creech has acted very unf-tirly ever
since be has been in nffioe and hia pecular
ways are provoking to the publio. 1 am
ono of the many in this district who have
no confidence in Mr. Creech. It would require more than a newspaper to find room
enough to mention the full details of the
many instances of Mr.Crteob'a pecular ways
of doing things.

Wanderings From Comox.
No. vxn.
I kept on the look out for a job. At
last I struck onc; it was short and sweet
like the girl I know of up in Union.���
One day 1 got a dollar just the same.
By this time I-noticed the girl that slung
letters ut the post office address me as
"Georgie" which I didn't like. The gal
that slung papers was nearly as forward
so I came to the conclusion that 1 had
better send some one else for my mail.
I could, I saw, get cither, but was afraid
of one disfiguring the other, but whether
that happened I'm not prepared to say,
but rather guess they did not go so far.
One day ut the letter window, I had
trouble in changing a $20 bill. 1 was
lazy for a good while, in fact didn't feel
like working at all. It was the only time
I ever remember to have felt lazy.
One day I was rambling along chewing a tooth pick and sporting a tiny cane
when the boss of the B. C. Cooperage
and jute Works asked me if I wanted a
job. My first impulse was'to feel insulted, and ask him what he took me for,
but after a little consideration I thought
I had better take it. I only worked five
hours that month being as it was the
last end oi it. I drew my pay. The
statement read thus:
B. C. Cooperage and Jute Works.
To George Finley Dr.
For 5 hours labor at 7 cents per
hour  $0.35.
I rushed in on him and unloaded myself of thestorm of oaths 1 had pent up
in the proceeding 2 minutes, then finish
ed up with, -'What do you take me foi���
A Chinaman?" He said, "There is a
slight resemblance." 1 disappeared mut
tcring something about suing for libel.
Well, I soon made a raise and got a-
long all right fot a few clays. When as
I wns walking along with a big block in
my arms 1 tripped and fell on my face
giving one of my eyes an African color.
Tbe boss made great sport of it, and the
boys followed suit while the eye kept its
color, which was for 21 days 21 hours 21
minutes and 21 seconds, and something
like 21 more. Soon the boss got a better opinion of me and so promoted me;
that is he put two gentlemen ofthe land
of vice and rice in my care. You can im
agine my feelings.
Pretty soon after the boys started a
fire brigade and for some reason or other
choose me as Fire Chief. We were pro*!
vided with hose, buckets, etc. About a
week after this we were upstairs e-iling,
an alarm of fire was raised and like the
true chief 1 was, I mustered my men and
took the lead. We got the buckets and
started for the fire. Of course, 1 got
there first nndJbund the hose of another
brigade playing on it from below. I proceeded to empty my bucket of water.
Some of it in falling, happened to light
on the hose man, and he seeing he had
the fire under control turned his attention to me, also bis host The result
was that I had a collision with thc water,
and with the floor soon after, such was
the force ofthe water. The upshot of it
was I lost my position. As to my Chinamen they were willing to work, but there
was too much, ''No sarve" to suit me,
and onc fellow in particular was absolutely cultus; so 1 did my best to get rid
of him, He couldn't stand the heat in
tbe drying kiln, and he wasn't near as
strong as I was, and that's saying plaguy
little, besides tbe boss was always complimenting me for keeping the machines
busy. So if I didn't get a better Chinaman I wouldn't keep up; therefore one
day my gang was sent outside to file
bolts, I told them there was no two
men's sticks there, though I must confess
I rather doubted my word. The cultus
Chinaman did anything and mighty sudden too; so he departed, but soon returned with thc boss. I explained. The
boss picked up (he biggest bolt in sight
and trotted off with it. 1 took the smallest I could see and triumphantly followed
him. The result was the Mongolian got
his walking papers and 1 got another
Chinaman with all the latest improvements. I put him to severe test which
he withstood wonderfully.
About this time I came to pay my bill
at tbe hotel. The boss tried lo cheat
me out of $2.50 and got mc so rattled
that he got the best of me. Never mind
said I, "I'll do the same at the end of thc
month." So he reckoned it up and as
I slill owed him something, it came to
$25; so he made mc give him an otder
on tbe company I was working for. I
told him to come along on pay-day and
collect it. Well, pay-day arrived in due
time, so did Washburn's circus. Mv
landlord being an absent minded kind of
a fellow forgot to draw my pay, so I did
it myself. It amounted to $,'7.50 I
blowcd the $7.*jo in on thc circus and
Dominion Diy. Then it bothered me a
good deal as what I would do with thc
remaining $30,
While watching the soldiers drilling on
Cordova street I came in contact with ).
1), Bennett cscoriing a brace of females.
He gave mc a good deal of friendly advice, but 1 won't argue as to thc quality
of it. In my humble opinion the two
feminincs kept him pretty busy.

Preparing Plums  fof Market.
In most cases experience has proven thai
plums, if shipped lo market-in ten-pouim
grape baskets, provided with handle!, and
put up in neat, presentable shape, will bring
the producer a greater pt>r cent, of profit
than if shipped in half-bushfel, or bushel
crates, or packages. A careful picker can
till the basket direct from lhe tree ; but
the usual plan ia to pick into large receptacle*-, then, carefully sorting tbe'plums, to
place them in packages ready for market.
This frequent handling removes a great deal
of tlie bloom from the fruit, which removal
should be avoided as much as possible.   By
the use of a tingle table, similar to the one
shown in the engraving, plums and other
similar fruits art* easily sorted. The top ol
tne table should not be over three feet
locgand iwo and one-half feet wide. The
sides and back, ������,���',*���, may   be eight inches
wide at the back, tapering to three iuches
in front ; thc front guards, e e, should be

Relation of Butter Flavor And Color.
The Rural New Yorker recently asked
several experts whether butler flavor is
dependent ou the color, 'lhe following ii
an abstract, of some of the replies i
H. H. Dean, Ontario agricultural col-
li>ge: (leiierally speaking while butler
lacks flavor, although it is possible to have
nuiurally white butter of good llavor by
ripening cream properly. ,
l��� L. Van Slyite, New York experiment
station t��� When cows are turned out to
grass, the butter becomes higher in color
anil flavor, but who can show lhat this is
not a mere coincidence, or lhat Lhe increase
of nolor has anything to do with increase
of flavor !
S. M. Baboook, WlBoonaln experiment
station : itis a well established fact that
the butter from the fiuernsoys and Jerseys
has a higher color than that from the
Holsteina, Ayrshires and Shorthorns,   If
lhe above ijneslion be Hue, 1 would expect
mat the Jersey and Guernsey butter would
have a higher flavor than thai from the
other breeds mentioned, Thii, however,
does not appeal* to he tbe case.
C. I>. Smith, Michigan agricultural college : There is absolutely no connection
whatever between high color and high
flavor. Between color and flavor there il
no relation of cause and effect,
A. L. Wales; I do uot think color has
any Influence on flavor which Id determined
by feed and management in manufacturing
the product.
,l, i��� Hills, Vermont experiment at
As butter is usually made, color and flavor
go, to some extent, hand in hand,
' John Gould. As color in butter is large
ly an individual peculiarity of COWS, and
what, thc market calls flavor is a creation
of the butter maker secured through tho
agency of torments working on the sugar
and casein of the milk and not ibe hits, il
is bard to see li-iw, conditions being eiml
lar, tlie natural color of milk has very
much to du with the flavor of  Ihe butter,
Prof. II. W. (,'onn, Middletown, Conn. !
Butter flavor and color are entirely dis
tinot- dint it is possible to produce high
flavor without color.
Sheep Ticks.
Some farmers seem satisfied to raise f.tf
per cent, of lambs. Others appear content if
they winter their sheep without losing any,
uo mailer how poor and weak lhey may
have become by spring, owing lo insufficient
I'ourlshmeitl.uxp-isutc to storms, or the fact
that parasite* have exhuod  in  large ami
increasing numbers,
No good caretaker fail;, lo see the
of famishing an abundance of nourishing
tood or to provide suitable shelter from
storms. By dipping <a Reasonable times all
trouble and loss from parasitic peats Is done
away with,
Dipping our  sheep  for   parasites   has
become as regulur a feature of earing foi
our flood as shearing,   It not only destroys
the pests if present hi-i it insures the flock,
peak, from future outbreaks ol scab,
or above, but such are exceptional cases.
\Vhat is a i:ow worth when beyond ten or
t welve years of age and in fact at any time,
will of course depend on a sreat many conditions ; constitution, feeding, length and
number of her past periods of lactation,
treatment received, etc. The cow. Lady
Bright, Hi1, years old, gave over a pound of
fat a day during the ninety-day breed
test, and was stilt a good and profitable
cow, but she had doubtless long ago passed
her, highest mark. The lietter a cow is
Oared tor and the better the ayatem of feeding and the general conditions surrounding
her, the longer will she be apt to give a good
flow of milk ; it furthermore seems reasonable to suppose that prolonged lactation
periods, especially if the cow is milked up

A Mother's Duty.
There is no part of a woman's duty to
her child thata young mother ahould ao
soon make it her business to study as the
oi.'.* of her infant, and the language conveyed in ita cry. The study ia neither hard
nor difficult, close attention to its tone and
the expression of the baby's features are the
two most Important points demanding attention. The key to both the mother will find
in her owu heart.
It is of the greatest importance that
young children ahould he carefully protected from the practices of unprincipled
nurses who, while calming the mother's
mind with false statements as to the character of tho baby's cries, rather than lose
their rust, or devote that time which would
remove the cause of suffering, administer
behind the uui tains those deadly narcotics
which, while atupifying nature into sleep,
insure for herself a nightof many unbroken
hours. Many nurses have not the hardi*
hood to dose their infant charges, but they
do not hesitate to employ other moans to
still the mint an t and reproachful cry. The
most frequent means employed for this
purpose is giving the babe something to
suck��� something easily concealed from tho
mother, or, when lhat ia imposaible, under
the plea of keeping it warm, the nurse covers it in ber lap with a shawl, antl under

The quantity of treaHuro carried across
the Atlantic whon Spain was robbing
Mexico, Central America, and South
America, though supposed to be fabulous,
is small compared with that which passes
between this continent and Kurope now

millions as do the void shipments on hoard
some of lhe fast Atlantic Hteauiers oil their
outward trip from New York. Since the
beginning ot the year these steamers have
eanied from the United States lo Europe
more than forty million dollars' worth of
gold. Last year nearly seventy million
dollars'worth was shipped abroad during
the gold-exporting season. On a single

rarely such a prize as that to lie in wait for

is enough to render piracy on the high seas
impossible. The only risk now a days is
loss by shipwreck, and that risk shippers
transfer to the shoulders of insurance companies. But the cost of insurance, the
freight, and the loss of interest, are a check
to gold exportation, and are only overcome
when remittance by bills of exchange are
still more expensive. Above all these expenses there is always the danger of losing

from being lost, though it could throw the

No Salmon In New-Zealand.
The true salmon has never yet been sue
cessfully domiciled in New-Zealand waters.
Why not ? Because, it is said, tho New
Zealand bean do so abound in voracious
fish, harraoouta, sharks, aud the like, that
the salmon haB uo chance of returning un-
devoured from his first visit to the salt
water. But if trout can pass through such
un ordeal unaoathed, why cannot salmon':
It is possible that the trout do not venture
to sea so early as the salmon, hut only when
they have attained to yeata of discretion
and are able to take carenf themselves.
There must' be some reason, oould one
but discover it, A few yeara ago there
waa muoh talk of trying to solve this problem in New-Zealand by an experiment on
a grand scale ; to wit, by turning down a
quarter of a million salmon-fry &t once iuto
an unstocked river, and awaiting results,
Whether this plan has been put in practice
or not we are unable to say ; the experiment would be interesting, though expensive, and ahould lead to aome decisive conclusion.
But whatever the fate of the true salmon,
t seems to he possible, nay, likely, that the
Knglish trout in New-Zealand may develop,
so to speak, aalmonhood of their owu.

After the pitiful defection of my little
curate, there wan evidently nothing to be
done hut to leave Leamington, Knit to leave
it at ita heat, in the very height of the hunt-
ing seaaon.
Then arose tin* question where to go
next. 1 ha t begun a semi-nautical habit of
consulting maps, So 1 took down n.y atlaa,
ar, 1 turned over the map of Kngland.
My choice was Boinewhat narrowed, as 1
had resolved not to try the aea, except in
the very laat riMour--e, Tlio sea now only
reminded me of Oeorge Sahine, and I hated
the very sight of It aa passionately ai I had
once loved it.
Uu innately I fixed on the Cathedral town
of Sulci-em it Salchester is nf immense
antiquity, Ita laat two syllables point to
its having onoe heen an old Human garrison.

"Salchester, Uy lord, suits me in every
way. I have actually not had to call in a
medical man. I find tha air from over the
downs aa bracing and exhilarating aa that
of Brighton itself, and the scenery ia delightful. I manage to pet little drives,
and am learning to know the neighborhood."
"It is a very beautiful neighborhood,"
he remarked, "Moat of our Cathedrals
have been most happily placed, although I
fear,the credit must be given to the Monks
who chose the localities long before the Reformation.
Having delivered himself of thia astounding piece of ecclesiastical history, he continued :
"A river was'neoessaiy to them to provide fish for their fast daya, and a sense of

Alwaya think out your plana thoroughly.
Vou thus save nn immense amount ot time
and friction afterwaida, And it ciroum-
ataucea battle your plua, you have only

after all, iaiuitsolla useful mental gym*
Having thought nut my plans, I went
down tu Salchester, stopped (or the night
at the " Hull," and the next morning
secured thu very lodgings I wanted, my
landlady lining no leas a person than the
wife of ono of the lay clerks, or, aa they are
profanely   termed,   singing men.
My conduct was method aud circumspection itaelf. I breakfasted at eight. 1
attended the Cathedral service at ten, I
had my liltle dinner at two. At four, I
attended the afternoon service* Then I
had tea, and waa careful toga to I wil at
thn orthodox ami respnotabln liritish hour
of ten to the minute,
My landlady waa charmed with me, and
was too well satisfied with the way in
which things went on, to make herself at
all inquisitive, Kven the most uneducated
English wom-in has a certain amount of tact
aiidswoir fajre, if you give her as little
trouble as poaaioie, and wink al her pretty
deviations from thn strict paths of recti*
tude and honesty.
This is why, aa a rule, a man in furnished
lodgings never quarrels with hia landlady,
and a woman alwaya invariably manages to
do ao.
Well, things went on smoothly enough.
Ha tore .i fortnight was over the wile of one
uf the Minor Canons called upnn me. 1
had forgotten, by thn way, to state that I
was passing as Mrs. Allen, and had resolved, instead of riskiug troublesome falsehood*!, to evade or else entirely decline any
conversation as to my past life. As f paid
my way in current money of the realm, my
task was comparatively easy.
Before long I was iu the magic circle of
the Close, aud had actually dined at the
Deanery itself, where the Ilean, who.unlikc
my own vory reverend father, was really a
learned man, and without a grain of world*
liness in his composition, was charmed with
I was particularly careful not to irritate
the women by my dress, I wore alwaya tie
plainest frocks, of a very simple and ordinary kind 1 also, although my hair was
as luxuriant as ever,adopted a moat discreet
little cap. My rustic Abigail always came
early to fetch ine heme. When any of the
Hrandea dames par le inonde ecolesiaBlique
honored me with a <:all,I regaled them with
tea which 1 kuew they'could not match, as
1 got it from Twining'-*, and with the heat
cake and hot-house fruit that thn 'own
If the men came, I would have olaret on
the table. Parsons are, as a rule, good
judges of claret, and you are seldom amiss
In offering them a large glass of Tanqueray's
Laroae, and pressing them to take a second.
Claret, I explained, was ordered mn ; and
I had indeed been recommended a variety
called Haul Brian, which proved, however,
1 found, t<i he beyond tne range of my
somewhat limited purse. Of champagne
there waa not a truce, and 1 found life perfectly possible without it. I think what
pleased the men most was my nndoniabaly
go>-l wine, The women were charmed
when they discovered that I had among
my effects very valuable jewels which I
never worn, although, of course, there waa
no reason why I should not do so ; and they
were still more inarmed when tliey found
that I did not set my cap at their husband's
and lovers.
Within a few weeks I had established my
footing securely. The men all swore by me,
In ao far and after such fashion an swearing
is permissible to ecclesiastical dignitaries.
The women had ceased to be jealous, and,
if anything, exhorted ntn to vary the monotony of my seclusion by a little harmless
dissipation- Home of them going so far
as to-; ingest croquet, Lawn tennis was
notasyit considered sufficiently serene
and sedate for un old-going Cathedral
My rise at last reached its culmination -n
an invitation to dine at the Palace, where
I tound the Bishop and his wife all smiles
and affability, and had actually the honor
of being taken down to dinner by the Arch-
deauin, a very worthy old gentleman, whose
conversation waagarruloua.and his manners,
to borrow irom Sydney Smith, "absolutely
and purely aroliidiaconil,"
The Bishop was a dull, well-meaning
pompous mau. He had been a college tutor
at one of the very Hinallest Cambridge Colleges for tho whole of his life, and had
managed to forget nearly all the mathematics, which in the days of his full youthful
vigor and intellectual force, had landed him
triumphantly as bracketed twenty.uintli
among the Wranglers.
Ho bad edited Newton's ���' 1'rincipia" and
the " Kpiatle to the Hebrews," preached a
number of indifferent University sermons,
and, after a brief visit to Palestine with a
"personally conducted tour," written a
volume called " Galilee and liennesareth,'
which reviewers had uot even condescended
to tear in piecea.
People said that if hn lived long enough
he wonld probably he Arahbiahop, as ho
was in everyway ho eminently safe. By
which tliey meant that whatever his
opinions might be, religious, political, or
social, he kept them profoundly to himself.
His wife I van deal with almost in a
sentence. Mrs. Johnson was ono of the
numerous daughters ofa poor Irish peer,
She was vivacious and agreeable, and had
evidently onoe been extremely good-look*
ing. Beyond thia one could only say of
her what the stranger told Sam Smiley of
his frog���that he could see no more points
in him than in any other frog,
The conversation waa extremely dull and
monotonous. The Women talked scandal,
or, to do them justice, that comparatively
harmless, irrelevant, and discursive kind of
scandal known at L'OBHJp. I
Thn clergy, and the few country geatte-
men who were present, deplored the alarming Spread of revolutionary principles ; hut
I could not help noticing the church militant was, as a body, much more truculent
than wero moat laymen,

whioh seemed to indicate an irrational desire
to commence the confirmation service at

1 This waa by no means a difficult task as
I had pretty well got his measure, I
talked to him ahout anything that came
firat���about the architecture uf ihe Oathe-
ral, about Tintern Abbey ami u slill more
wonderful Abbey, which, as a mailer uf
fact, 1 only knew from photographs.
Then I paid a tribnte to the memory of
Bishop Selwyn and aaked his lordship, gaging critically at his chest and idioiildera,
whether he in hia time had rowed iu the
University eight, or whether hia studies
had made it. impossible for him to so aid his
Alma Mater.
He replied, of course, that he had heen
warmly pressed to take a thwart in the
middle of the boat, but that moie serious
pursuits had compelled him, like Cwsar,
to thrice refuse the crown of laurel.
When you onoe get a man who is well
past fifty to chatter to you about his physical powers, you have pretty accurately
ascertained the length of his tether, and I
in my own mind finished my reokoniug up
of his lordship by putting him in my mental museum of busts as being at any rate
capable of giving my very reverend parent
what poor George used to call a atone and a
half, anda thorough beating over four miles
So far then everything was in my favor
the dayr passed very pleasantly. I procured an old sure-footed pony and a amall
basket carriage, juat suoh another as I had
at Leamington, only more ecclesiastical in
Its ensemble and with leas suspicion in its
appearance of any sinister intention to go
and see the hounds .thrown olf. This I
kept on the famous "gig-manity" principle,
and wu most careful to let it always be at
the disposal of any of thc ladies at the
Close. The pony waa not one at all likely
to run away with them. And they were
welcome to let him down for all that I
oared, as his knees were badly broken
And by these and other similar little
devices I managed to get on famously.
Alter all I waa doing uo wrong. I was
leading my own life���a simple harmless life
enough, and being asked no questions had
no occasion to tell any lies.
On the whole I think I really enjoyed my
life.    1 mounted fern cases in my windows,
procured myself a piping bull-finch and
magnificent collie, hired a good serviceable
piano, and began at last to find the spring
returning to my step .uul tne roses to my
faoe, and to think dreamily about those
pleasant and lovely places ao exquisitely
describe I to me hy poor George Sabine,
and aven to plan a visit to aome of them.
To one or two ladles, who were rather
curious about my antecedents, I replied
that my husband had been ia the consular
service  and had died abroad under   very
Eainful oircumatances. And then I would
ring out my pocket-handkerchief.
Some of them inclined to the view that he
had killed-himself with drink j others were
in favor of a fatal duel; others of suicide.
They fought the matter out among themselves
with some waste of timo and loss of temper,
but none of them came to me a second time
begging me to determine the dispute in her
I did not meddle with them in any way.
I did not try to eclipse them or to compete
with their unmarried sisters or their elder
daughters. Ho they unanimously came to
the conclusion that my life had been a very
aad ono, and that tlie manner in which I
bore up against my sorrows, together with
my unostentatious mode of life, spoke volumes for my resignation, my humility, and
my other Christian virtues.
Women are easily managed enough if
you will ouly abstain religiously from anything calculated in the slightest degree to
make them jealous.
Thus, then, I became insensibly an institution in the town���a sort of Jack
dawess of Rheims. The life waa lazy and
monotonous, but not, as my life wiih Sir
Henry had been, tedious. And I almost
began to wonder whether 1 might not
possibly "long live lhe pride of that ouun
try aide, a- d at last iu the order of sanot
ity" peacefully depart this life.
And yet, up to now, I had had ao much nf
the vie orageuse that Salchester was beginning to weary me almost as thoroughly aa
Ossulston had ever done, and, as 1 felt my*
self growing stronger and more resolute, I
began, aa do birds of passage, to feel an
definite craving for motion and freedom,
After all, I oould return to Salchester at
any lime I pleased. I had been economizing, not as a virtue, but because my income
was far heyond the few expenses incurred.
Had I lived up to my means I should probably have exulted suspicion.
Why then should 1 not give myself a
holiday, pleading that unanswerable plea,
a craving for sea air ?
We had reaohed -.hat time of the year���-
When a blanket wrap* llm day.

And tho leal Ih Hininpoil In clay.
Thfl birds of passage had long left; tlm
days were dismal ; and yet I, absolute mis*
treis of myself, had been loitering and
hesitating instead of turning straight to the
Sunny Mouth.
I had my boxes packed, left i-.f.i*. cards,
adroitly catching all my friends out, and
felt thorcughly happy when I fouud myself
alone In the train being rapidly whirled
tc wards London.
Of course I had written to Kthel to announce my determination, and 1 had paid
my maid two months' wages and given her
three or four old dresses. Nothiug could
have been better arranged ; and I felt at
last recklessly free and triumphant as I
toasted my feet before the fire of my littio
room In EUwlings' Hotel.
That evening I actually took a small
private box, and went in one of the hotel
broughams to the theater. 1 wonder if
bad habits are hereditary. When 1 got
baok to my quarters, I actually found myself ordering a pint of Perrier .lonet and a
plate of dry biscuits.

The persevering attempts ot Russian
conspirators during the last 13 yeara to
assassinate the Kmperor���several of which
conspiracies have been within an ace of
success���vividly show hi*-perilous position.
They also bode mischief to the peace of
Kurope. It ia impossible to foretell what
would occur if any such catastrophe happened. Would the policy of the future
Government be���as now���one of armed
peace, or would it imitate the French revolutionists of 1792, and by plunging llussia
into foreign war, divert people's attention
from home affairs'!
Since Peter the Great four C/ais have
been murdered, but there Is no accurate
record of battled conspiracies, it ia l,'f ynars
since Alexander II. was assassinated, and
since then
D0ZKN8 or I'l.DTH
have been unearthed, aud the Kinperor'-*
lie has been repeatedly attempted, hut
great care has always been taken
to prevent tho full truth becoming known.
Tlm recent discoveries of railways
being mined over which the Kmperor would
have to pais, and of piibli'- buildings being
also mined which it was known he intended
to visit, show the imminence of the danger;
and also that the conspirators must tie
comparatively numerous ami possess funds.
Danger threatens from different directions:
(1) the old Nihilists, who are practically
Anarohists. Although these, from their
adventurous hardihood,arc very dangerous,
they are not numerically strong;('J) the
old-time type of conspirators, men of tho
tippttrand middle olasses, who aro greatly
dissatisfied with the present cast-iron
system of rule and atandstillism, and who
are determined, at any risk, to bring about
a change; (.1) other so-called conspirators,
but who outside Russia Would not he classed
as suoh; men who abhor assassination, hut
who seek moru or less legally to bring about
reforms. Ill other countries theae latter
would form legal associations for peacefully
effecting reforms, but this cannot he doue
under that aem-Asiantic despotism. The
Russian police often purposely mix them
up with the genuine plotters, with whom
they have nothing to do.
As showing the extreme peril of thn
Emperor's position officers of the army
and navy and officials of good standing
have been discovered among those plotting against his life.   The Czar   has   linen
that he has created a special Department
ot etate���with its own Minister and police
���exempt from all control except his own.
Its special object ia to safeguard tho palace,
and also the Emperor during journiea.
But unless he oan lie aure of the fidelity
of those about him these extra precautious
will he of little use. The assussination of
the French President has vastly increased
the Czar's danger, for one specialty of the
nativo Russians���to some extent a stumbling block���is that lhey are an imitative
race, more ao than any other in Europe. One
of two thiogs is reasonably certain to hapten within a measurable period :(!) either
io will somewhat relax his iron rule of
repression and initiate sorely-needed reforms, or (2) he will share the fate of his
father. Such a crime will probably start
the avalanche over-hanging Europe.
What was to become of her and her child-
reu ! She took lhe resolution to go and aee
the governor and told him all her story.
"Sitdowu there and write," replied the
General, pointing to a writing-table. The
trembling woman took her seat and wrote
from the General's dictation a long supplication. "Now address it, and wait for
me iu the next room." .
Two or three minutes afterward the /
woman was recalled, and theGeneral gave
into her hands a sealed letter, saying to
her: "Take thia letter to the head constable,
take care not to open it, and come back to
me as soon as you have the reply. A week
passed, at the end of whioh the woman
went to the palace again, hut this time
joyfully; hor pension had been granted to
her, and ahe thanked the Governor with
joy. " It is useless to thank me : I am
nothing in tlio affair," and he immediately
gave the following order; " The head of
the police at Kieff is'dismissod from his
post and sent into exile ! The reason,
because he granted a demand after having
received a sum of money for so doing." In
the letter which the widow had written to
the head of the police, General Wahl had,
unknown lo her, slipped a bank note for
93 roubles, which accounted for her
supplication beiug granted!

Organized labor was prompt to strike
back at the latest manifestation of Federal
power and authority. Hardly had the
word been flashed aoross the half mile ot
the intervening ground bet-vecn the Gov-
ernment building and labor headquarter--;
that indictment ahould be ie turned and
warrants for Debsand hia associates placed in
the bauds of the ollieers when the committee
appointed hy the Trades and Labor Associations ot the oity to urge upon the Pull-
mau Company the desirability of submitting the dispute with its employes to
arbitration attached its signs to the order
o tiling out evory union mau in the oity
from midnight.
Almost beforo the ink was dry on thia
document* General Master Workman Sovereign of the Knights of Labor placed the
official seal of the order upon a manifesto
appealing to the order and through it to
the whole people to lay down the implements of toil. This order, request, or
whatever it might properly be designated
waB wired at once to the officers of
every district assembly throughout thn
country with instructions looking to its
immediate transmission to the executive
hnad of eaoh local assembly. The organization of the Knights and its means of
communicating with the individual member*!

quarters that every Knight of Labor in
the land would be made acquainted with
the ultimatum by midnight. District Assembly No. 24, representing every local as.
sembly in Chicago and surroundiug towns,
was the first to respond to the Execetive
appeal and it has by formal resolution
declared it the duty of all members within
its jurisdiction to carry out the suggestions
of Grand Master Workman Sovereign.
Around town the news ofthe arrests, whilo
it intensified the strained feeling already
referred to, failed to produce any prolonged
manifestations either of approval or indignation,

Charlotte enters like a miniature whirl*

beside* a thousand other charming details ;

who, in despair, on the verge of apoplexy,
meekly submits. Rut Mason, a veritable

tbe necessary amount and orders him away.
"Permit me," the young man says, with
loliteness, to the ex-merchant, who barely

Thn father of Mias Charlotte, who but
recently could not understand that a person
haa not alwaya iu hia pocket as much as a
dime to pay in an omnibus, now admits
that he is very happy to have some one to
advance the sum of a dollar to stop thn
mouth of a pitiless cabman.
Thus, notwithstanding the diverse and
unusual emotions lie hu juat experienced,
it is with an almost gracious smile that he
saya to Mason:
"Sir, lhat makes a dollar and ten cents

me the pleasure of dining with me thia

A Remarkable Cure' for Diphtheria
Tha Pall Mall Gazette has a note aliout a
new .diphtheria cure, about which very
little has been heard, hut which, it is said,
baa been ao firmly eatabliahnd aa a sound
and trustworthy remedy that it is about t
be introduced at onco iu one of the large
Loudon fever hospitals, Tho history of this
cure ia,roughly speaking,aH follows: ���Uipb
theriawas lirat studied as a zymotic disease,
and its characteristic bacillus was isolated
hy Loftier, in Berlin, and afterwards by Dr
Roux of thn Pasteur Institute. Koux found
that the aym ptoms of the disease were pro.
duued by a spcoitia poison, secreted by the
diphtheria bacillus. The matter was taken
up afresh hy Professor Retiring, af Berlin,
who discovered the remarkable fact that
blond trom any animal whioh had been ron-
dcred immune would actually ait re diphtheria
and extirpate the noxious bacillus. This
result iu one of the moat alartling in the
whole range of dae'eriology. Ii seems incredible, tirst, that by injecting weak cultures of a disease into living animala tbe
animala do not become infected with thn
disease, but simply become immune to it
so that ooe can inject without harm,
into a guinea pig as muoh poison at
would have otherwise sufficed to kill
whole colony of guinea pigs ; and secondly,
tint a few drops nf blood from that animal
injected into a human child suffering
from diphtheria will arreat and often
cure the disease. Usually it is a horse
that is made immune, and the process of
bleeding is ao simple and painless that it
will not even look up trom the carrot it ia
munching to see what tha operator is doing
at its jugular vein. By ana by, iu all pro* |
liability, a means will be found of obtaining
the necessary aerum without having recourse
to living animals at all, and then the cure
will have reached its highest attainment.
A -TiincerltMl Movement Against Authority

The prisoners in the Houae of Correction
at South Boston, Mass.,mutinied thn other
forenoon and refused to work, The trouble
broke out in shop No. I. where thn men
threw down their tools and stopped work

Uvea of tlie officers. The prisoners in shop
2 ami 3 quickly followed their example, and
tu a few momenta all the ahops were in as
state nf wild tumult. The officeta in charge
of the shops endeavored to suppress the disturbance, but without effect, and the
officials drew their clubs and charged on
tbe prisoners. Thn men resisted and at.
tacked thn officers with their tools, stools
aud anything thoy could lay their handa on.
Unable to drive them into lheir cells the officers finally drew their revolvers and tired
.-ovcral allots at the convicts. Only one shot
took effect. This struck a conviot iu the
cheek, and effectually frightened the mutineers. Superintendent Wbitten states that
the wound is not a serious one. He says
that the prisoner shot had seized a tailor's
goose, and attacked the officer, who, iu self-
defence, shot at him. Tbe superintendent
refuses to give the name of the man shot or
of the officer who Bred at him, but states
that the wounded man #aa one nf the leaders in the outbreak. Tbe men have been
restless for aomo days, and threatened
trouble. After the shooting the prisoners
fell hack, and were driven into their cells.

A Combined Sink and Slop Drain.
How to dispose of the link and slops
water in a safe and expeditious manner is
what greatly perplexes many residents in
the country. In cities where there is
lhe benefit of water works and sewers, this
ta an easy matter, A simple plan whereby
thia may he accomplished is shown in the
illustration herewith. The dotted lines
indicate the location of the sink. The common outlet pipe passes downward in
the usual manner, but immediately under*
neath the sink or under thc floor, as moat
convenient, a foul air trap is made by
simply Iwnding the lead pipe in the form
shown at a ; it ahould extend upward at
the bend a little more than the diameter of
the pipe, ho that the pipe at the lowest
point of the bend will always remain (ml
of water. This, of course, prevents the
sewer gas from escaping into the room.
Kvery time the sink is used lho water remaining in the pipe is forced out hy the

the most simple lessons iu hydraulics, and
of great value whnn rightly put in practice.

whether the clergyman could introduce him
to some one whe would oblige him, the

they had appropriated. Unfortunately for
ihem, the owner, a carrier, had missed hia

to the police, At the corner of Pitt street
tlie carrier espied hia vehicle, with the minister and the draper in it. He at once demanded of a constable who was on the scene
that they should be lucked up, (Explanations
were attempted, but it waa considered that

Not His Own Way.
The Government agent is not to have
his own way about thc extension of ihc
Tsolum Kiver road up near tlie unoccupied ranches in which lie anil his brother
dre interested. The first calls for tenders were withdrawn on the order of the
Department, and the second calls which
were only advertised in a dark lantern
sort of way��� well, we arc vet to sec what
will be done abont them. Of one thin-,'
we may be sure, the Department will
never consent to any large expenditure
uf money this yc.ir on the road in question, and that the matter will be carefully
looked into, and controlled at the Victoria office. Let us have a little patience
for there may be in the final outcome
little cause of complaint In the meantime, it would be well for the government
agent to remember that persons who put
in tenders are entitled to proper information! '"-d courteous treatment even if
ihey do not belong to Irs "set".
A Betier Outlook.    -
The prospect of limes is belter in the
United Suites. The tariff bill will pass.
The Senate will have to yield somewhat
to lhe House on the question of free raw
material. The people are with the President, and there will be no adjournment
until the tariff is settled. Then business
will accommodate itself to it and industries will revive. The great strike is over
aud we are not likely to sec another of
equal proportions���perhaps never. The
war between China and Japan, however
deplorable it maj be in itself, will do
much tu bring "good times". Already is
there a demand for canned meats and
bthei food; and of course all kinds of munitions of war will be called for, including war vessels. That war materials are
contraband, is not material, as they will
be delivered in mid ocean, if need be.
The vigor which war gives to the business of commercial nations, is wonderful.
Kngland as well as the United States
will be greatly benefited, and Canada
both directly and through the sympathetic effect of thc parent country and its
southern neighbor will feel the quieten-
i ng pulsations of business revival.
Spirit of the Press
The Japanese navy consists ot 5 armour
ed -cruisers ;*g second-class, and 22 third*
class cruisers; with a flotila of one first
class and fortv second class boats' The
sister ship, Hashldatt*, Itsukusliima and
Matsushuna, are protected ciusiers of
special construction,; each displacing 4277
tons, being 205 feet in length and pleasuring 50 feet 6 inches in Ineani, witli a for
midable quick-firing armament and a gun
of \zV. inches making up lheir features
of equipment, Among the boats ofgjeat
Bpced i-> the Voshino and its companion,
recently built, having each a capacity of
22 'i knots and 15,000 horse-power,
with slightly different tonnage. As for
China, it may be said that she has a navy
of" one first class, one second class, and
three third class battleships; 9 fort*defence vessels; t) second clftSS, and 47 third
class ctui-er*. and 2 first class, 26 second
class, and 13 third class torpedo boats;
and nlso 2 ���smaller boat*. Hut COrca has
no navy whatever.
Japan's army on a peace footing con*
siits of 3,662 officerst 62,441 imii-com-
inissioned officers and men, with 314
ficldgunsi 156.mounied.gunk and 8,791
horses. She also has 6 battalions of gen
darnies of 51 officers, 1,007 lion-com in IBS
:oii-;d officers and men, 88 horses; antl
4 battalions of Yeomanry with 80 officers
.3,210 non-commissioned officers and
men. Antl the reserve has a strength of
r*'-,554 aud the Koku-mm-gun or land-
we fir, of 99,176.
Corea, it is said, has only about 12,000
men available for military duties. Hut
China according to official statistics,
claims to possess a strength of 323,000
(total Imperial guards) and 650,000,
(National Army); 1 he numbers represent
ing peace footing of which the national
army can be doubled
This praciically means that Japan
with her maximum force of say 269,000,
has 10 fight China and Corea with something like 1,635,000 war footings, or about
1 to 6.
The Providence Journal says: The
yearly salary of Ida Lewis, the famous
keeper of Lime Rock Lighthouse, nl the
south end of Newport harbor, is $750
and two tons of coal. She is past 50
now, her hair slightly streaked with grey,
and her face somewhat rugged and
wc-Uherbcatcn, but she U still alert and
strong, and can man her boat in the
roughest weather as quickly and well as
when, at 16, she began her wonderful
record of life saving with the rescue of
four small boys, whose boat capsized in
the harbor before her. She is lhe only
women lighthouse keeper in this country
and the Government does not intend to
duplicate her or appoint a successor to
her when her work is done, but freely admits that no light is cared for by .iny
oiher employe along the coast as that of
Lime Rock is looked after by its woman
keeper, Ida Lewis.
From Montreal Star.
This is not the first time that China
and Japan have come to blows. The
feud between these two Oriental nations
is hereditary. For centuries tbey have
haled each other and there have been
several greai wars between them. About
five hundred years ago, thc Chinese invaded Japan with a great fleet and an
arm)'uf one hundred thousand fighting
men. This great Chinese army was
completely annihilated by the Japanese
and the fleet was utterly destroyed, This
was the only occasion on which any organized attempt was made by China 10
invade Japan, but Uic two nations have
often fought each other in Corea. In
former wars in Corea nearly all the bailies were won by the Japanese, but the
numbers of ihe Chinese were so preponderating that ihey could nol be conquered or driven out of ihe peninsular, When
lhe victorious army annihilated onc army
of Chinamen auotbci always rose up in
its place and so ihese wars never came
lo any practical issue.
From Vlctoriu Colonist,
Sir Charles Mills, the South African
statesman who attended tbe Intercolonial Conference, expressed himself struck
with the fine appearance of Canadian
men and women. He admired particularly the manliness of the boys and the
beauty of the glrly. We aie not surprised that the South African stranger
should find m Canada splendid specimens
of the human race. There is nothing to
hinder Canadians being physically and
intelleclully as well developed as the finest people to be found on tbe surface of
the earth.
*       *        *       * #
Tbey have, in the first place, come of
a good stock,      * * *
The climate is invigorating. It is not
so cold as to stunt growth and nut to
warm as to be enervating.       *       *
They bad plenty of excercise for their
minds as well as their bodies in clearing
and cultivating their lands, in building
their bouses, in disposing of their produce and in managing their public affairs
The Canadian settler was in a good sense
everything by starts. To-day he was a
carpenter, tomorrow a shoemaker, the
next day a horse-dealer and the next a-
gain found him driving a hard bargain
with the village storekeeper for snme
of the produce of his farm. All tliese occupations brightened the man and made
liim shrewd, intelligent and resourceful.
The days of roughing it have passed
away in most parts of Canada, but de-
cenannls of the pioneers have inherited
the grand physique of their forefathers
and their strength and activity of brain.
We wonder if tbe merchants and professional men and the lovely women of
Canadian cities think of the debt they
owe the men and who made the coun
tiy what it is.

What is an Insurance Sale ?
So many people ask the question.   We shall explain:	
After the late disasterous tire in Nanaimo the Insurance Companies cancelled a large number of policies in some blocks. We
have just ��10,000.00 to place just at present in any other Company.
Now we cannot afford to carry over large stock without sufficient insurance. Consequently we are compelled to unload. To do
this quickly we have put the prices lower on everything in our immense stock���than Dry Goods have ever been bought before���less
than cost in nearly every instance.   See price, lists which we have
