for Ry.fcT or SALK���A neat story and
half cottage at the thriving village of
Courtenay. Knquire of
R Cessford, Union, IJ. C.
Thc en ter min ment in aid ofthe Union
and Comox District hospital last Thurs-
diy evening was a --ratifying success.
The hall wa** nearly filled. The comnui-
lec had thoughtfully provided -.hairs and
thc audience was made comfortable and
splendidly entertained hy a meritorious
programme. Mr. A. Lindsay presided
with thnt dignity and eive which comes
with ox pencil re, to which 4 fine presence
lends additional lustre, a though an
ohc��e gentleman present intimated th.it
he cmi'd li*l the chair bet:cr. The audi*
ence was at .ill limes appreciative and
otxiis-ionally ei.tbusia**tic. To interest an
audience w'iih a re idii y is a difficult thing
unless ihe matter lie cxcmlinglv humorous, and read with a manner and in a
voire which reveal all its risibilities. If
the re.ider has a great reputation and the
people have come especially to hear hnn,
the case may be different! hut ���-���hen -.and
wiched into a performance chiefly musical, it is hm little tolerated and then only
when highly eiitcrtainipg. tn spite of all
this Miss I'ooth's refuting was wellreceiv
od. Mr. Hunter's essay was too long,
though well written, and read in a natural
manner. Thc musical part*, were all excellently rendered, although some were of
a ii elier character than others and natur
ally gave the most pleasure. The piano
duet by Mis. Ed. McKim and Mr. D.
Jones elicited much applause. Mr. To*m
Pearse as usual received an encore. Mr.
Pearse ii a good deal nf an actor���his action-being graceful and natural. He
has overcome or nevrr had one trouble
common with amateurs. Heknows what
lo do with his hands. If. *.*��� hether singing
or reciiing. one has not the full control of
his arms and hands, ii is much better 10
let ihem hang naturally at the side. Stiff
awkward motions are to be avoided. To
stand with arms akimbo is horrible. To
let the hands rest on the hips or in the
pocket shows bid training. If lhe hands
niusi touch something or find something
to do, it is much better, as wis done in
some cases Thursday niyht, to bring
them in front, clasped.
Mrs. McDonald and Miss Kilpatrick
were in good form and sang with good
effect. Mis Turnbull as usual was a
favorite. Miss L. Abrams appeared
twice in recitations, inking the place at
a late hourofene who could not be present, and did her part well. The solo and
chorus by Miss Edith Lindsay, Master R
Lindsay, Miss Hannah Amhonvand Miss
Mary Harcrow weie in excellent form,
especially the solo part by Miss Edith
Lindsay who sang like a bird. Thc solo
by Miss Hattie Abrams, although a rath
er heavy part for her, was capitally txecu
ted, and thc chorus singing by unseen
persons behind the curtains very effective.
The piano duet by little Misses Mary
and Sadie Grant was worthy of mention.
As thev sat at the instrument, with a
���vealth of light hair flowing down their
shoulders, they looked as pretiv as they
Quite an innovation was the appear-
ince of Mr. and Mrs. Jenkins in character costume as negro banjoists in lhe first
part ofthe program. The banjo appear
d to have wonderful possibilities in their
hands, while their jokes and mimicry pro
iuccd rears of laughter. In response to
uud calls Mr. Jenkins recited or rather
-ang the story of Tobias and Kyuncus.
It was capitally acted.
Before dismissing, the audience Mr.
Lindsaymade a fe w appropriate remarks,
hanking those who had laken part fnr
heir contribution of time and talent to
die entertainment, which had proved so
pronounced a success; to Mr Howell who
had taken charge of it and to whom tliey
vcre chiefly indebted; to Mrs. Piket who
'md givey, ihe use of the hall; nnd lo the
adies and gentlemen who had turned out
r, such large numbers in aid ofa worthy
institution, lie stated that the hospital
vas in need nf funds in order to its trior*
���ugh equipment and highest usefulness.
The government had appropriated nothing for its support for 1805. There had
���een a misapprehension in the minds of
many to thc effect tint thc hospital had
:he control of the miners or sick fund.
Nothing of the kind. That fund was in
he keeping of ils own committee, but the
hospital had no connection with it. It
received however from this fund for each
miner while in thc hospital $s per week,
['hat was for the benefit of the miner.
The hospital beyond its income from its
inmates, has to depend solely on the contributions ofthe public for support.
The officers ar.d directors ofthe Union
and Coniox local board of thc Canadian

broath with a hiss; and then to herself, "If
he despises me for thc aot, well, I must,
boar it, too���whilo I am here."
An ovenlng was lixcd,oiie on which GuoBt
felt sure ho would be ablo to catch hia
friond at tho chambers, aa being the pro-
forahlo plane, though, failing thia, there
waa thc lodging in -S aru in Stroct.
Thoro waa no occasion for inventing
Buhtorfugofl, 'I he admiral that right dined
at tho club, and he troul-lod himaelf ao littio
about thn comings and goings ot his daughter and niece that, it ho returned, he would
only consider that lhey had gone to Bomo
"at heme," and retire to his bod.
Tho consequence waa that tho carriage
waa in waiting at eight, and Gueat arrived
to act as guide.
"Strikes mo, William," aaid Andrews,
tho butler, to tho attendant footman, "that
our young lady would he doing more what's
right if Bho stopped at homo."
"Ah, ahe do look bad, air."
"Sho doea, William," said Andrew, with
a little Btress on tho "doea." "Twice over

her married,and it strikes me that lho next

Thoy're a*coming down,Mr. Andrews*,'
whispered tho footman as, in evening dress
and cloak, Guest brought :lown Myra-look-
ing very white in her itiutilin;:-*, and as if
ahe wore in somo dream.
Gueat handed her into the carriage and
returned for Edie, who was flushed and
"You won't think uny ihc worse of me
for thta, Percy, will you ?" alio whispered.
Hia reply was a tender pressure of tho
little hand which roatod upon his arm.
Matters having heen intrusted to Guest
he directed tho coachman to draw up he-
aide the old court in Counsel Lane, and
upon the footman opening tho door, and
the ladies beiug handed out, ho looked at
them in wonder, and asked his follow*sor-
vant what gamo he thought was up as the
trio passed into o gloomy looking alley, at
whose corner was a rohemaker'a shop with
two barristers' wigB on block** in the window.
Myra had takeu < I nest's arm at a whisper
from her cousin, wlio followed close behind,
and, before long, tho young barrister was
well aware of her agitation and weakness,
for, as thoy reached the upper entrance to
the inn, she leaned moro heavily upon his
Arm, and, aftor a fow more p&ei-.v'li**..-

"Tired 1" ho aaid gently j "v..- are nearly
She tried to Bpeak, but no worda would
come ; ho could feel, though, that she was
trembling violently, and Edio pressed to
her side.
"Courage," ahe murmured ; and hor voice
aeemed to calm Myra, who drew a deep
breath, and tried to walk firmly tho rest of
the way ; whilo Edio began to hope Stratton
would bo absent, for aho dreaded tbo
But fate was against hor thiB time. Tlie
meeting Bhe had struggled to bring about
was to bo, for Guest turned to her and
whispered over his shoulder :
"There is a light in hia room ; he ia at
Half way along hy the railings, beneath
the great plane treea, a man was standing ;
and, as he took a step out into tho light of
the nearest lamp, Guest felt that Myra waa
ready to drop, But a whispered word or
two rouaeil her to mnke the last effort, and
the next minute thoy were in the doorway:
with the stone ataira looking dim and
strange, visible where they stood, but
gradually fading into the darknesa above
Guest stopped short in obedience to a
preaaure upon his arm, and Myra supported
herself by grasping tho great wooden
balustrade, while Edio uttered a nigh, and
their escort began to feol some doubt as to
the result of their mission, and wonder
whether it was wiso to havo come, oven
going so far as to feel that ho ahould not be
sorry if his oompauious drew back.
Just then Edie whispered a few words to
her cousin, who seemed to be spurred by
tbem to fresh exorUon, and bearing hard
upon Guest's arm once more, aho ascended
the silent staircase to the first floor, where
Gueat led them a littio aside into Brettison's
entry, while he went to reconnoiter.
All waB dark, apparently, and ho bogan
to be in doubt aa to whether Stratton really
waB there, when, to hia great delight, he
found that fate had favored their viait,
for tha outor door was ajar and, drawing
it back, he stepped inside, to find the inner
door only juat thrust to, while, after opening it a little way, ho eould ace Stratton
seated at hia writing table with his face
resting upon his hands.
Thero waa an angular look in Stratton's
attitude whioh atartlcd Gueat, aud made
him step forward with hia heart boating
heavily. Tho unfastened door was terribly
suggestive of the entrance of a man who
hardly knew what he wuh doing, and he
now aaw that a hat wun lying on tho floor
aa if it had fallen from tho table. In an
ordinary way such ideas would not havo
occurred to him, but ho had twice over
visited that room, and hud been startled by
matters whioh had auggcBtod Stratum's
intention of doing away wilh Iub life.
All thia made Guest walk quickly up behind his friend's chair, and his hand waa
raised to touch him, hut he drew back, for
a sigh, long drawn and pilcouB, broko tho
silence of tho dim room���such a sigh as
escapes from a sleeping child lying exhausted after somo passionate burst of lumper.
Guest, too, drew a long broath aa ho
erept away softly, looking over hia shoulder
till he reached the doors, through which he
passed, and hurriedovcr LhofcwBtops along
the landing to where Myra and Edio atood
shivering in the cold, dark entry lending
to Brettison's chambers.
"Oh, how long you havo boon," whispered Edie, to whom Myra waa clinging,
������ Come, Mra. Barron," said Guest,
without heeding the remark, as he took
Myra's hand, which struck cold through
ber glove, and drew it through his arm,
"Waitthere, Edie,
Tho girl uttered a faint ejaculation, but
said nothing, and Myra walked silently to
Stratton'a door, and aa Gueat raised Iub
hand to draw it toward him she preaaed it
" Wait," sho said iu a hoarse whisper,
" My brain aeema to awim. Mr. Gueat,
let me think for a moment of what I am
going to do boforo it ia too late."
Guest waited, half supporting her, for
he hung heavily upou his arm, but she
did not speak.
"I will tell you ho said Gently j you
are going Hko some good angel to solace
a man dying of misery and despair. I do
not know the cause of ull this, but I do know
that Malcolm Stratton, who hns always
been as a brother to me loves you with all
his heart,"
"Yea���yes," whispered Myra excitedly.
"And that Borne terrible event���Bomo

on hiB wedding morning. Myra Jerrold,"
he continued solemnly, "knowing Malcolm
as I do, I feel that he must have held back
for your sake, taking ail the burden of his

"Yob," she suid in hor low, excited
whisper ; "that is what I have been feeling
all thoae weary, weary days. It is that
thought which has sustained me, and made
me ready to sactiliee ao much���prido,

"Your cons;n fa here," said Gneat quickly
"We ahall not leave, "
"No, you will not leavo mo," Bho aaid,
holding his arm with both  her hands,
" Now, bo firm," whispered Gueat, "and
think of why you have come."
"To forgive him," she suid slowly.
" f helievo thero is nothing to forgivt,"
Baid (iueat warmly. "No: you como as
hia good angol to ask him by hia love for
you to bo open anil frank, nnd toll you why
ho haa acted thus. Ho will not apeak to mc,
his oldest friend : ho cannot refuse you.
But mind," ho continued earnestly, "il
muat not he told you under thn bond of
secrecy; he must toll you truly, and leave
it to na afterward to decide what ia the
best to ho done"
"Yes,'' ahe said, spoil king more firmly
now, "I uiidereluinl. 1 tiuvo oome to help
tho man who was to have boon my husband,
in hia sore time of trial. The fooling of
shame, degradation, and shrinking has

Stooping on my part: 1 ought to have
como to him before,"
"God bless you for that, Myra 1" he
whispered earnestly, and ho bent down
and kissed hor hands, Ab ho raised hia
head ho found that Edie had crept forward,
and waa looking at him wildly from out of
her little fur-edged hood.
For tho moment Guest thought nothing
of all this, hut at a sign from Myra drow
open tho outer door, and she stood in tho
dimly lit on'.ry as if framed; she let her
hood fall Ine';, and gazed straight before
hor into the quaintly furnished room as if
wondering that sho did not at once see tho
object of lior thoughts.
Then lhey aaw hor tako a couple Btep-*
forward, and, as if from habit, tnruat to
tho Inner door, shutting in tho seene beyond, and leaving Guest and Edie in tho
gloom of the landing.

Care of Dairy Cows.    .
Mr, John Gould says of keeping oows in
winter: "What is the stable for ? With
the stable we prolong the life of tho oow
and keep up the development of milk. The
stable of the future will be built differently
from the stable of the past. The eows
Bhould have the best kind of a stable, with
windows in it. It should not be damp and
chilly and dark, with no chance to light it
and no ohance to warm it, and where you
will not get the results yoa should for food.
We had such a one and we converted it
into silos and box stalls. Outside of that
we built our cow barn. We bad one then
with double walls and lined with matched
lumber, with eaoh cow occupying a stall
room of three feet and six inches, and with
a ventilator, so we ean temper that stable
just as we wish. I am not in favor of
turning cows out in the winter, I am an
advocate of eaoh cow having her bath in
the sunshine every day, which we can have
f lho windows are so placed that the sun
siunes in on all sides,
" Keep ihe stable whitewashed, A whitewashed stable looks a groat deal more
cheerful. I believe a oow has a great deal
more humanity than we give her credit
for; I believe she should have her own
home, Ihe oow becomes wonderfully attached to her home, so do not keep changing her around. I recall an instance whon
it became necessary to make somo change
Id the stalls of my cows. They wore in
different stalls for about twenty-four hours.
Thoir actions told vory plainly that thoy
wero homesick. Let every cow have a
place of her own in which to stand. Another thing about tying up cows. Vou
know an animal can bo taught to do almost
anything. I was brought up to think the
staui-hion was just tho thing. A stanchion
is an inatrument devised for punishment.
We have changed it for putting the cow in.
I have discarded the stanchion altogether,
and use tbe chain, Tbe stanchion is going,
and going very fast; the ohain or rope is
going very fast. The swinging stanchion
ia beginning to be the thing, giving the cow
all the freedom poasible.
"We do not begin as a rule to tie up
the cow early enough in the fall. We have
an idea that Bhe has got to go through a
toughening process to mako her hardy. Wo
oan feed her and make her hardier than wo
can freeze it in by letting her stand out.
Whenever we want fires in our houaos,then
we want the cowa in a warm stable. If tho
cow becomes chilled through Bhe must
shrink in her milk, and extra feeding is
required to bring her baok to her former
standard, We do not as farmers give food
enough to the oow. We assume that the
frosty grass of October is good enough for
her. At the same time, if she were fed
better, the results would be fur more satisfactory to ub. Last year I had a good
field of clover, half a mile from the house.
We divided tbe dairy and sent five into
that clover field,frosted two or three times,
and kept the others in the barn. The cows
that went into the lot shrank in their milk,
while those that remained in tho barn gained, The food was expended in exercise.
Next fall we shall not try any frosted clover. Thoae that are not in I shall not bo
quite so particular about, but the winter
milker shall not know, so far as food is
concerned, but that winter is not here.
The oow is not benefited by turning her out
unless on a very nice day. The exercise
sho gets when fed Ib at the expenae of her
milk. I should pat the cows up for winter
quarters on Thanksgiving to remain until
after mild weather oomos in the spring.
"Next as to watering. After careful
experimenting I have eome to the conclusion that well water havinc a temperature
of fifty de roes is aa good as warm water.
But if it is near the freezing point then it
should be warmed. For this there are all
kinds of devices, a thousand and one pa*
tents. But we have gone back to the pad.
We have a tank of water under the barn
holding forty barrels, The water in that
tank will not vary a degree from the temperature in whioh the oow stands. There
ts not a cow but what the hose will roach.
Why do J water with a pail ? Simply because the oow will drink on an average
ninety pounds of water a day. If I turn
them out to drink as they see fit, I do not
know whether they drink or not. Whero
they all drink in one vessel the seven'ecnth
oow turns up her nose; bo with the
eighteenth, and still more, the twentieth
won't drink. If we use a rait each cow haa
her own, fresh and pure, and we know how
much she drinks. If one fails to drink, wo
go back and try her again. Water them
twice a day; many will not drink in the
morning, but will in the afternoon.
Another thing keep bedding for the cow. 1
heard a man say a olean plank was the
best bedding for tho cow; while at the aame
time ho was arguing plank for the cow, he
demanded better springs for hia own bod.
We want to treat her as reasonably an
wo oan; make her bed fresh every two or
threo days. Every night go and scrape off
a little ofthe filth and put on a little more
clean straw, and then go baok and watch
all the cows take their beds. It means
another pound of milk in thc morning.
Vou aro getting your pay."
Cutting and Curing Pork.
Thoro are many ways of culling and
curing pork. Tbe mode to be pursued depends largely upon the use for which fa is
intended and the different markets to which
it ia to be Bent, Sometimes tho hip bone
in hams ia removed at tho socket and some*
times it is left untouched, while the shank
is left long to tho hock joint, or cut up
close to the ham.    Tho nhouldor may bo
ant square back of tho shoulder-blade and
neck or trimmed off rounding at the upper
part. The bacon pieces may extend from
the ham to the shoulder or tho flank may
bo separated from tho back. Sometimes
tho tips of the ribs are left in. Tho sido
containing tho hone ia called mess pork.
Without tho bone it ia called clear pork.
To cure pork put au inch layer of aalt in
the bottom of a barrel and then pack in a
layer of pork as solidly and aa closely as
possible, with the rind next to tho staves
of tho barrel. Put a layer of salt on top
of the pork, then moro pork again, and so
on until the barrel is full, Thon plaee on
top ol' all a board cut nearly to fit inside
the barret Weight it down with a heavy
etone, then fill up with a brine of cold
water containing all tho aalt it will hold in
Pork must never bo packed until it is
entirely free from all animal boat, ncr must
a barrel or cask bo uBod that has over held
anything eUe. The best quality of Bait
Bhould be used in the proportion of fifty
pounda to a barrol. If a littio saltpetre iB
added the pork will harden und assume a
reddish tint,    -
Tho parts destined for hams or baoon
should be salted by themaelves. This curing
Bhould be Bufficicnt to soason them ouly, aB
if too much Bait ia used the llavor is affected.
To make a pickle for UM pounds of ham or
bacon tako four gallons of wator, six pounds
of Bait, two and a half ounces of saltpetre,
one and a half pounds of granulated augur.
Boll, akim, ana use whon cold.
For dry salting the proportions aro a
pound of brown sugar to four pounds of sal t,
Tho hams ahould bo rubbed daily for ton
days witb tho preparation, after which they
are ready for stroking.
Tho moat should ba bung up ao as to dry
thoroughly beforo smoking iB attempted.
Six days of consecutive smoking in a dark
house is Bullicient. Corn coba, green hickory, or sugar maple chips are good for smoking, Some people prefer hardwood sawdust.
The pieces Bhould then be hung in a dark,
dry place, of even temperature. Whon
perfeotly dry pack in boxes with sweet,
well-dried olean hay and cover with thc

���Uow This -Great Hood Was Finally on*
from the Menford Monitor.
Knowing the Dr. Williams Modicino Oo.
* o bo an honorable and reliable firm we had
never any reason to doubt tho entire truth-
fulness ot the articles appearing from time
to time setting forth the particulars of remarkable curea effected hy the ubo of their
Pink Pills. There is acarcely a locality ir
Canada which haB not furnished a oaae of
moro or lens prominence, and if tho particulars, as stated, were not accurate, it would
lio imposiih]-* that the public would not
find it out an<l ihua the remedy would be
iisoroditod. There is therefore every
ground to believe that the statements are
accurate in every particular. Wo have now
hnen put In a position to verity one of these
cases for ourselves, and we give the result faithfully, alvina rink Fills no
word of praise not merited in the case,
Messrs F. Clarke ft Co.,druggiBts, of Men-
ford, who have sold vory large quantities of
these famous pills, drow our attention to
the case, givitii** us tho name of Mr, Honry
Lamb, a well known and respected farmer
of St. Vincent township. Having Bome
acqualntauco with Mr. Lamb we Bought an
Interview, and the following is tho Bub-
stanco of his tostimony :���"About 8 yoars
ago I suffered from an attack of inflammation of the atomach, causing me extreme
pain and uuoaBineBS. I was attended hy
Dr. Clarke of Moaford, who brought mo
around, and I havo always given him the
credit of saving my lifo on that occasion.
The effects of tho attack however remained and I fell into a state of ohronio
poor health, which completely unfitted mo
for my ordinary work. I was really
dragging out a miserable existence. I
suffered for over seven years from a con*
stant pain In my stomach, aa well aa from
weakness and continued debility, I tried
many advortlaod remedies which I thought
might bo suited ta my case, but without
relief. I at length decided to try Dr. Williams' Fink Pills. I Boon felt the pain In
my stomach relieved, and after I had used
ten boxes the pain was entirely gone and I
now feel like a new man, I can now work
half a day at a time without fatigue, and
SB I am still using the pills I confidently
expect, aa I have every right to do from
the great reaulta thus far, to be ablo to do
my work as formerly. I am 07 years of ago,
and beforo the attack eight years ago, I
always enjoyed good health. I have stated
my experience to many peoplo and invariably recommended a trial of Dr, Williams'
Pick Fills."
The above is the substance of Mr. Lamb's
story, to whioh the Monitor may add that
we consider him a reliable and trustworthy
person who would make no statement
which he did not know to be correot aud
Dr. Williams' Pink Fills contain alt the
elements neceaeary to give now life and
richness to the blood, and restore shattor-
sd nerves. They are an unfailing specific
for suoh diseases as locomotor ataxia,
partial paralysis, St. Titus' dance, aofatioa,
neuralgia, rheumatism, nervous headache,
the after effeots of la grippo, palpitations
of the heart, nervous prostrations, all
diseases depending upon vitiated humore
In the blood, such as scrofula, chronic erysipelas, etc. They are also a specific for
troubles peculiar to females, such sb aup-
proasions, irregularities, and alt forms ol

My position was now uncomfortable in
ihe extreme. Tbe night had fallen, it wuh
very dark, chill, and blustering, and it had
begun to rain. Clearly I should havo a
disagreeable drive of it, and my friend
Terence of the unimpeachable memory
having forgotten for eome reason or other,
the excellence of which I knew ho would
not have tho slightest difficulty in demonstrating by and by,10 send his bus, I should
have to fall back on some local vehicle,
which as likely as not would prove to be
no better than an outside car. My experience of the Irish Sea had not dono much to
fit me for a drenching on a bitterly cold
night; and altogether my feelings towards
the magnificent Terence wero anything
but charitable.
"And how on oarth am I to got on, as
the 'bus hasn't como J" I asked tho station-
master, who, now that I was in a difficulty
for which his department could in no wise
be held responsible, had begun to assume a
much moro friendly attitude, and to tako a
personal Interest in my movements.
"Jndade, tlun, yer honor, it's meself that
doesn't know, unlessyer honor walks."
"And how far may it ho to tho Castle J"
"TheCasael, the Caaaol���indado.I hardly
know, not likely to be dosaving yer honor,
Tim, how far wonld the Cassel be, now?
Isn't it right the other  side  of   Rathnar-
11 'Deed, and it is, whichever sido ye goes
to it," was the enigmatic reply, and four
sound miles buy nut, and another milo up
the lane to the back of that."
"Then your honor, the Cassel Is not one
yard leas thau fourteen miles, and most of
thim long ones, from this very spot."
"Then 1 can't possibly walk it. Can't I
hire a trap of some son hore 1 A car or a
conveyance of any kind,"
*���' 'Deed, then, yer honor, I'd be afraid
that's what ye cannot do; tliey did used to be
kyars and coaches and ivery sort of con-
vayianoe, but that was before the railroad
oame, bad luck to it 1"
Here the porter, who, like the good*
humored fellow he was when he wasn't in
the wrong, and consequently angry, had by
this time forgiven me for his own blunder
and for what I had never said, suggested
thnt possibly Dan Logan might come to tho

tho station-master, "an1 he was away
yiatcrday at Cook-na-luish, and at Larry'
Hogan's wake all the night, and he didn't

io'iI bo, an' his basic, too, If not dhrunk.
Anyhow, he'd be wantin' good pay for the
** Well, it's ttiBy to run an' ask him,"
said tho now friendly porter, nnd suiting
the action to the word, disappeared at a
run in tho darkness.
After about a quarter of an hour a wild
" hurroosh" was heard in lhe distance ;
this was succeeded by the noise of horse's
feet clattering in most irregular cadence,
and then there emerged from the gloom a
very high, cadaverous, uock throrpled
white horse, with a very low outside car
bumping and jumping behind him, on ono
Bide of which Tim was crouching, while the
driver, on tho other,'held on by the reins
and stamped his feot on tho footboard.
With a rush whioh all but ended in a fall,
they Hashed past the Bide of the station,and
were lost in tlio night almost as soon us
thoy had appeared.
'-That'sa wonderful harso," observed the
Bint ion-muster, by way of explaining this
mumeurvoj "his owner wouldn't have
called tho lord-liftinant his cousin when lie
waa young���he was the most illigaut canal
lepper that lver was dropped, and sorra a
one could see which way he wont in tho
It occurred to mo that there was a
similar dilliculty now that lie was engaged
in the humbler role of drawing a car, and I
Baid something to thatoil'ect.
"Oh! yer honor'll seo him back
again soon enough," was llio ambiguous
ro joinder ; "niver fear but Dan knows how
to manage him���he'll jlat let him run to
tho ful ut thu hill, ami thoro ho'll turn him,
unless the reins break, and then he'll go
all quiet and uisy Into the dilch."
A very cheering description of a thoroughly safo liorse and driver 1 I was halt
wishing that the reins might break, uml
the wholo concern bu landed ���- quiet aud
aisy" in tho ditch, so as to prevent my
entrusting myself to its tender mercies,
when the perforiuauoo of a fow minutes
before was repeated in the reverse direction, with the exception that this time the
drivor Biioeeedod in pulling up opposite
thu station.
" Ik-dad, thal's tho way to do it, yer lion*
or,'' cried D;iu Logan, aa lie half jumped,half
rolled ou to the ground; "uud it's yer-
self that'll bu wautio' to go to tbo Cubbc! ?"
'��� Yo-es," I answered, with no responding ontlinsinsm, " if you think your horso
oau tako me so far."
"la it my harse ? An' why wouldn't he,
when ho knows every iuch ai tho way i
Shure there isn't a hill between this and
there that he hasn't galloped down many
and many's the time."
I looked at the brute's fora logs, nud if I
know anything about a horse's legs, it
would be dillioult lo find au animal whom it
more urgently buhoved to tako heed unto
hia ways; which was perhaps tho reason
why he carried his hoad like a giraffe, and
persistently starcc. at the stars. Assuredly
tho Inability mentioned by Mr. Murphy, lo
see whicli way ho wss going, was not confined to the onlookers.
*- Ye'll not bo flndin' any fault wi' that
harse?" his driver went ou, as 1 remained
silent, "Maybe yor honor'll be thinkin'ho
hasn't bone enough ?"
" More bone than blood perhapa," I suggested) in ' in* weak hope of raising myscli
iu his estimation by impressing bim with
my knowledge of horseflesh,
" Is it blood, yo mano ?" ho almost
screamed. " Well, theu, I'll tell ye
what it Ir. That's the bloodiest ham-
in all Oireland, It's claim thoroughbred he is. But maybe yor honor is not
uaod to sit behind a thoroughbred ? Thoy
do tell mu they bo that ways in Kuglaud,"
he added in a half-UBido.
Miking tho best of a bad j >b, I asked
what tha fare would be.
" Woll, then, yer honor, to tell tho
truth at oust, it will have to bo gould or
" Cold or paper?" I queried,
" A sovereign or a ouo-pouud nolo,"
interpreted the stati-m-mastcr,
" Au' if yer honor's placed wid yer
dhrive, maybe ye'll be givin' me a thritle
for moself, just to knpo ma from breakiu'
the pound," aaid Dan Logan, by way of
finale, as ho began to lie my traps on to
thenar. Wheu he came to my gun-cases
ho stopped short. " If I might advise yor
honor," said lie, " tho boat way of taking
them would bo to lave tbem bohiud hore
wid Mr. Murphy, aud ho'll put tbem out
of Bight some whores. It's a wild part
we'll bo going through, ani', tho bhoya
might not bo best plasod at bight o1 tlio
"Hut my good man, I'm going to ahoot:
nod how can I shoot without a gun?"
" Av coorse yer honor knowa heal, but
anyhow, I'll put them In thu well, and then
maybe they'll know aB much as if thoy
wasu't there."
My traps adjusted somehow, my friendly
porter fired a final shot as I clambered up
on the off-side ������
"Thank yer honor, and ye'll be mindiu
tint ye hnve yer thrunk���yer bag, I inane,
wid ye,"
Wo wero off I Nover, if I complete my
century uf years, and livo to forget my first
birching and my fltst lovo, bhall I coaae to
remember that awful drive. Tbo terror of
the way in which that horrible while
enormity strode through the night between
thc tall hedges OU oither side of tho dark
road, whenever wo camo to a levol strotch,
with nock oroot as a lighthouse, and face,
turned towards lho sky, whilo I held on,
expecting that at ovory stop ho must eome
dowh ! Tho boisterouB hilarity with which
tho throe-parts intoxicated .Iclui urged him
into ft swaying gallop ns often as the
ground foil away,making bun go faster and
faster nB the hill grew sicc-wr ! I ho bumps,
thu jlots, the extra pane ii. variably put on
round every shaip cornel, lho hair-breadth
shaving of thu deep ditches ! Tho fear that
tho reiuc would break, alternating with
iho hope that they might, if so we might
make an end beforo worse happened ! Sliall
I ever forget tbo uuparalleled horror of
thi>t drive ?
But everything, not excepting Harloy
Street, as aomo ouo has Baid, must have uu
end; and alter about throe weeka.as it seemed to mc, Dan Logan pulled his horse into a
walk, and, leaning across the car, express
od the hopo thai, 1 had enjoyed myself.
Serenely confideutof aoquiescenae.and with
out waiting for au answer, ho continued:���
" He went grand 1 It's not often ye'll
get a dhrive like that in Kuglaud now ?
An' he's not bate yet���at taste, uot muah.
Itut we'll walk bim up tho hill so as to do
tho avenue in right style���the front of the
Cnasol is to the back of it, and tho inthi ance-
gato ia at thu top of tho hill, aud tho
aveuue's a mile long���bo we'll tako it nisy."
At the top of the hill we stopped opposite
an iron gato of imposing dimensions. It
proved to be padlocked, and our culls for
lho gato-kenper elicited no response from
tho lodge which stood inside.
** The man must be out. What can wo
"Shure it's no matthor," was Dan's ready
response ; "it's only to knock the hasp off,
and there's a wall of big Btones convayni-
ent. Hero's ono that's made for that
In an instant ho had smashed the look
with a huge stone, whioh he dropped where
ho stood, aud the next moment we wure
tearing up the avenue, the near-wheel taking Dan's lock-opener, by way of making a
good start, with a orash which sent him
lurching into tbe wall, and was within an
ace of shooting me clean off the oar."
"The harse is a faetther lepper nur the
car," was hiB only comment as he lashed
his panting animal into a more furious gallop. "An now ye'll see," he added presently, as we approached lho lost bend to
the house, "how I'll bring yer honor up to
the hall door."
But I never did. Ab we rounded, or
rather out tho corner, a stentorian voice
"Stop on your lives I Another yard and
I'll fire!"
"Holy Moses I" exclaimed Dan, Hut it
was too lato to pull up ; tho whito star-
gazer sped onwards, and beforo we reached
the hall door we were saluted withacouple
of reports in quick succession, and two
balls whistled by "quite convaynient," aa
Dan would say, to our heada, Tho old
white horso swerved violently at thiB reception, and the next instant we were off tho
gravel aud tearing ovor tho graaa. By
superhuman exertions, Dan, whom the
excitement seemed somewhat to havo
sobered, managed to slacken pace beforo
we reaohed the boundary fonce, and skirting this, he presently contrived to bring us
to a standstill.
"It's this blessed minit." he then
gasped out, "that I remember I forgot to
tell yer honor that the family left the Cas-
sel thia threo weeks, and I did hear tell
tncy bad put an emargeney-man in. If
yer honor will stay hero a minit und hould
thu harse, I'll go and collogue wid the
blackgyard and sue what's to be done."
My holding tbe horse w.is a mere matter
of form, for he was doad beat; his flanks
were heaving with distress, Ifa legs trembling, hia awful star-gazing hoad hung
heavy on my hand, and altogether he was
more likely to lio down than run away.
However, I did as I was bid, and reflected
the while on the results of my having accepted tho invitation uf tbe effusive Terence. He promised me the "heartiest
welcome in all Ireland,'* aud a "reception
that should astonish mo," and certainly he
had kept bis word. My welcome
was if anything, a trifle too warm
and my reception cnlaulated to try
the nerves of nny one who had rocontly
boen prostrated by tho worst bout of sea*
sii'knosson rcoord, and tliuii been driven
by a drunken lunatic, behind thu " finest
steeplechaser that lind ever been dropped."
Meanwhile, Dau Logan bad approached
lho houso through a tittle wood which lay
to tho right, uud from behind the trunk of
a large treo was bawling out somo unintelligible gibberish at the top of a romarkably
vigorous voice. The Immediate result was
a third shot fired from tho houso in the
direction from which he waa i oaring, and
this was shortly followed by a aeries of
yells pitched in much the same key as his
own. It was all Greok to me, but apparently tho countrymeu arrived at nn understanding, for presently Dan came to whero
I was standing, und with the joyful assurance, " licgorra it's all as right now as ivcr
it was," led tho staggering steeplechaser
to tho hall door.
"I'd not hnvo balaved that your mother's
son," Put Maloney," he expostulated, addressing a stalwart and very respectable-
looking man who waa standing in the
doorway with a gun iu hia hand, " would
liavo been dhnvii.g balls through mo at this
time of night, and I comin' eo ducently up
yor front avenue ; und yc'vo ruined me

"Ye should havo lot mo know, an' yeM
no call to como up thut quick, like the
Waterford train, mure bo token that ye'll
have broken the front gato to git in."
The divil a break ? I only loosened tho
bit of a lock that was ou it, Aniiybow.tliis

ther, and ho'll be glad to be gottin' inaide,
and to be bavin' a bit and a aup afther his

it's army where else he'll bo takin' his bit

"D'ye nuino that yo'd be turnin' av liim
away, and ho comin' all the way from Kuglaud itsolf to stay wid thu masther ?" asked
Dun, drawing a littio nearer to the door.
"Slop whero you are, Dan Logan," was
the reply, "or I'll shoot," raising the gun
as he apoke,     " Not one step nearer now 1
I havo mo orders, though itaso-ry I'd be
to kill yo."
Dan halted. " But what'U we do at all
if we don't git in ? Shure it's hero we
must stop nuuyway."
" Ye'd may do what ye likes, the both
of yer,, but oue thing yo will not do, and
that is, stop here."
"Then what will we be doing, Pat
Maloney V
" Ye'll go down tho avenue ye camo up,
Dan Logan,-, an' ye'll go out of tho gato

yo plane,"
" An' how would I go whon me harm; is

" Ye can't atop hore, nor yer harso nay-
"Would yo look at mo harso? He'll have
io slop here, unless yo shoot him."
"He will not Btop hero, avon if I have lo
shoot bim. An' it's now ye must bo movin'
off- Dan Logan,"
"Ib thoro any inn wo could go to?" 1
"The handiost ho-tol would bo at Ardluy*
morne, an' that'll be olivin milo from here.
II is a. grand hotel, and a good road," he
added encouragingly.
"If it was olivin yards, mo harse couldn't
do it; shure, his legs aro jis*. foldin' under
him, the craylhur? Couldu't yo let your
own mother's cousin," ho continued coax-
ingly, "put hia harso up for thc night ? An1
thin ye'd bo loanin' mo another basic to
take tho gintleman on,"
The Maloney softened nl. this appeal ;
and my throwing in that I would pay
handsomely for the accommodation, finally
induced him to do what ho could fnr us,
"Ye had no call, Dan," bo said, " to
break mc gate on mo, and my orders fa lo
lot iioono como here, or stay here, which
mancB uv coorse that I'm to shoot il thoy
does ; but yer harso might spend tho night
in the stable���it's twelve illigant stalls he'"
have his choice of���an' that's what I'll do
lor ye, Dan, and tho gintleman."
"An' ye'll loan us a hars-e to dhriw to
Ard ley morne, an' I'll bring bim buck so
fr. s!i yo wouldn't know he d been so far tu
the chapel."
"There isn't even lhe tati of a harso in
tho whole domain only n cow and a jennet,
"An'why wouldn't tho jennet do? If
ye knows the ways on 'em, lliey're boiler
nor manny ha'sen."
After some further palaver the orestfalten
old whito waB left to recover himself in ihe
stable,and an cxcessivolygauntund vicious*
looking jennet ; with un enormous barrel
perched on thn top of extraordinarily loug
and spindly sticks of legs, was hitched on
lo the car.
"Ye'll mind, now, an' let me kuow, Dau
afore ye eome again, aud don't be comin' in
the middlo of tho night,"shouted the emergency-man after us, as wo tittupped und
sidled down the avenue. Tho gato had imt.
been shutBiuco we had toru through it: nevertheless, though thero was nothing to bar
her way, the jennet stopped short on aceing
it, as if thore were a lion in tho path. In
tho courso of a prolonged medley of expostulations, entreaties, and anathemas,
Dun exhibited au incredibly intimate
quaiutaiice with her family history for
many f.-onorationB, and a surprising, if
inappropriate, knowledge of the denunciatory passages of tho psalms of David. But
thiB seemed only to confirm her in hor
determination not to go through the
gateway, and at eaoh fresh objurgation
emphasised by an obbligato application of
tho whip, sho jibbed further and further up
the avenue. But Dan was not to bn beaten.
Ue jumped down, whipped her hoad round
towards the houso, was on his seat again in
a twinkliug, and exclaiming, "It's your
own way ye want, and ye shall have it,"
plied his whip, accompanying each
stroke with, "I'll larn you to be a ten.
net���I'll larn you to be a jennet���I'll
larn you to be a Jennet 1" and in Iobb time
than it takes to tell it, bad backed the
obstinate brute through the gate, aud wa
off at score along the highroad.
" If your ladyship il only keep that up,
it's in time for supper wo'll be at Ardley-
morne," Baid Dan cheerily, " But it's
rather drivin' ye than ridin' ye I'd be," as
her feet rattled from time to time against
the driving Beat. But bor ladyship did
not keep it up, and it was not long beforo
she subsided into a lop-sided amble which
soon degenerated into a shuttling walk,
" Look at that now ." cried Dan admiringly; "if she hasn't lamed herslalf kickin'
agin tho middle sate, and I eittin' on tha
side I Isn't she as cunning as a piotur ? I'll
go bail but she's cast a shoe, Thrue for
mo," he added from the road, after picking
up jennet's feet at the imminent peril of
his life, " but it's three and not the one
al.o's thrown. It's the Widdy Flinch that'll
have to atand yer honor's friond to-night.
It we waa to go all night wid this three*
comored shoe-slingor, It's no nearer we'd
be to Ardleymorne in the morniu'."
" And who is the Widow Flinch ? And
how far doea she livo?" I inquired, mentally blessing my friend Terence for the
plight in which he had landed me.
" She's me own father's sister's cousin
by marriage, an'she lives quite convaynient
ye can aee tho light in her shebeen from
here. If yer honor '11 mind thejennet, I'll
run an' ask her if sho can give yer honor a
lodgin' for the night,"
It seemed to be my fate in Ireland to be
holding distroBsod quadrupeds while the
driver was away on aome errand or other ;
but 1 was fast losing my sense of wonder
at anything, and was now almost prepared

the lirst timo since we had left the railway

" It's bad luck yor honor has this

The proposal wus,of course,wholly out of
the question, so I decided to push on for
Micky Sullivan's, iu the fervent hone that
he might have a spare room whioh I oould
occupy without the embarrassment of having to share it with his wife's relations, or
their piga. At the top of tho hill the jennet turned up a lane after a brief opposition
on Dan's part, and 1 asked him why he
had triod to proveut her from turning,
''Spake low, yer honor," he whispered;
"this do be the way to tho Coort,

That was tho last word I heard. A strong

The Duke of Argyll.
Iu matters touching the state, the church,
the Boience, the name of f he Duke of Argyll
fa well known. His namo, George J oh n
Douglas Campbell, bespeaks hia nationality;
and in behalf of Scotch Presbyterianism he
had taken up his pen bofore he waa out of
hia teens, as he bas dono moro than once
since then. On win succession to his father'a
title began his career as a statesman,and he
soon made his mark as an eloquent member
of the Houso of Lords, During several
administrations he held important offices ;
and, under (Hailstone, in 1HS1 he waa
secretary of state for India, a position that
he had filled before, but one that he soon
resigned becauso of his views on the Irish
question, Shortly beforo, ho had published
a book reviewing the Eastern situation.
His leaning in politics has been characterized as "Whig by family,Liberal by intellect,
Independent by nature, and Conservative
by inclination." His taatcB have led him
to the study of art and literature, and he
haa given lectures on varioua topics in thoae
fields, He has been president of the British
Association, and the work cf his most generally known is "The lloiguof Law." In
tha realm of science he is marked as ono
that docs not find it necessary to reject
Christian truth in order to accept scientific
truth. In 1S78 he visited the United States;
and in that sumo year his sou, tha Marquis
of Lorno, who had married the Prinoess
Louise, tho daughter of Queen Victoria,
received a moi;. enthusiastic welcome as
iho new governor-general of Canada, If his
high connections rcllcct honor upou the
duke, it may be no less to his credit that by
encouraging another son to enter business
he showed himself to bo fr.*c from somo
fulse but common ideas ns to nobility.
Medicine and Ceremonial.
Tho physicians of mediaeval England,
who wero for the most part monks, friars,
or Jews, possessed a lurgo assortment of
remedies, aome of tbem borrowed from the
Byzuntino physicians, others from tho traditional pratice of the people. Christian
pliysioinn.i, however, called religion to
their aid. Nnuu of thoir remedies wai ad
ministered without ceremonial. While tho
medicine waB being compounded, the pa*
tient would say twelve times over one of
tbe Psalms, beginning "Miserere Mel,
Deus," then several Paternosters, "thon
drink the dose, and wrap thyself up warm;"
or ho would sing the Psalm, "Salvum Mo
Fac, Dcub," theu drink the draught out
of a ohurch boll, thc priests finishing tho
aure with prayer.
Dr. Creighton romirks that as the maladies of the Middle Ages contained an
unusual element of hysteria, tho ceremonial may not have como amiss aa an aid to
tho treatment. Physicians gain considerable fees by thoir practice, whioh the peoplo
appear to havo grudged them. The satirical
writers constantly accuse them of greed;
hut those charges wore probably owing to
thu prevalence oi tho idea, not yot extinot,
that as "medicino is from tho Lord God,"

Consumption   as a   Communlcablo
There are two wuys in which the infection
from communicable diseases may Im truns-
mil I** 1 from one animal body to unolher.
In soma diseases proximity lu the person
infected is all that is required. These are
contagious diseases. In others some medium
like food or water, is necessary for tho
transmission of the germ. Such diseases,
though communicable, uro   not contagious
These two cIubscs of diseases call for different methods of sanitary treatment. In
contagious uflectieus it is obvious that since
tho infoction is transmissible on a mere
approach to llie sick person, isolation, or
quarantining,   as it is popularly called,   is
tho ouly sure method of exterminating the
In the case of non-contagious communicable diseases, ou the olher hund.cummuni-
cationiatiotestablished simply by proximity
n the sick, but by intermediate moans.
Hence isolation is not necoBsury ; nor it-
it effective, as compared with meu-aires
directed against tho medium of transmission.
It is to tho class of non-contugious
communicable diseases that consumption
belongs, in common with all disorders nl a
tuberculous origiu. In other words,
consumption is uot a disease that calls for
quarantine. The patient, therefore, need
have no fear that he is to be isolated from
his friends ; nor neod we who love to render
the last hours of the sufferer moro endurable be alarmed lest our efforts ahull only
serve to spread the dread disease, if we
will observe a few simple rules of disinfection.
The tuberculous germ in consumption is
of oourse not only scattered more or less
completely throughout the substance of the
lungs, but Is present in the mucous substance whioh ia constantly coughed up by
tho patient. The germs have a wonderful
vitality, and will persist long after tho
sputa is dried up and invisible.
It ib this fact which has rendered tbe
disease the subject of bo much Investigation,
and which has led to ita being placed on the
listwitb other communicable diseases in
order thut it may como under tho same
sanitary treatment.
What iB proposed to be done in the way
of remedying the evil is that consumptive
persons shall bo reported to iho health
authorities in order that the case may
receive proper inspection, that the necessary disinfectants may be provided, and
that the family may bo warned of the nature of the infection and the manner in
which it is communicated.
It is tobe hoped that efforts in this direction will bo received by tho public in a proper spirit If this iB dono, and proper
methods of disinfection are carefully followed, we may expect eventually to coma off
victorious against ab least ouo form of
turberculous infection,
Bleeding from tho nose is caused by the
eongostion of the lining membrane of tho
This congestion may be tho result of cat
arrh, or more properly, of the diseased
condition of tbe nasal membranes which Ib
due to catarrh ;or it may accompany con.
gestion of some organ of the body, aa the
liver. It may also result from heart disease, or evon from dyspepsia.
Nose-bleed in children is commonly sup,
posed to indicate nothing moro than that
the child tires easily, or is overactive. Yet-
even these terms express moro than is obvious upon a casual reading of thc words.
If a child tiros cnBJly, or in other words,
if the loast overexertion at play or at study
results in a moro or less severo altaak of
nose-bleed, the child must be in a weakened state ; while, on the other hand, if ho
is accustomed to allow his play or his
studies ao to absorb his interest as to make
him forget his fatigue, he is placing an
injudicious strain upon hla constitution.
In either oubo ho will bo benefited by a
curtailment of work, and an iucroasein the
amount of timo allotted for rest, until his
body is more fully developed.' No child's
mind can be developed faster than the body
except at the exponse of health.
Nose-bleed occurring in middlo life and
old age is a more serious thing, as it indicates a graver condition of affairs. It is
usually coiucident with disease of the liver,
heart or kidneys. Its euro is of courso
dependent upon tho restoration of tho
organs to a normal condition. In elderly
peraona the disorder sometimes appears to
result from weakness, whleh, in turn, it
It is a common Baying that, in full-
blooded persons, an occasional nosebleed is beneficial; and this may in a
certain sense bo true, inasmuch as tho nasal
membranes aro thus relieved of congestion.
But it ia safe to say that bleeding from the
nose iB never anything but a aigu of weakness.
The treatment of an attack of noso-bleed
consists in absolute rest aud oool applications to the head. Tho extremities should
be warm. The head should uot bo held
down over a basin, as this favors the How
of blood. One of the simplest and most
effectual methods of stopping an ordinary
attack is for the person to stand erect,with
tho head in the usual upright position, and
the hands extended at length directly over
the head,

Camphor, when very much diluted, may
be held in the palm of the hand and anuffed
up the nostrils, affording great relief.
Colds, however, become a serious question
to women, who must bo over ready and
smiling and at loast. ostensibly at their cose
for whatever amusement the evening muy
bring forth. In the event of hoarseness
or sharp, constant coughing, nothing helps
so much as a thorough turpentine steaming.
To do this fill a basin half full of very hot
water, into it pour a scant teaspoonful of
turpentine, and throwing a flannel cloth
ovor neck and hoad, bend over the basin
aud breathe through the month and nose
ns much as possible of the rising steam. It
is the turpentine fumes that find their way
into all ttio choked, strained passageways
and soften and liberate the glands.

The prospect f"r lively times this fu-i
son is bright. Winter fa making ha-,ic
to depart nntl building lo a considerable
extent has already conimenced. Fortunately the saw mill will be boner able
lo meet the demand (or lumber than it
was last ytar. The town is rapidly
extending e-tstwardly ami the mure pru
dcnl class of miners are erecting homes
fnr themselves.
We understind thai the owners (if nil
llie lots abutting on Dunsmuir avenue
bet weed First and Third streets have
subscribed to the side-walk fund and
tii.it tlie specifications are being prepared and tenders will al once be called tor, we hope in se.ison for publication in this issue. The demand is that
there shall be no un'ifpcessary delay.
The public spirit evinced in this enter
piise augurs well for other projects of
a public nature for the gcmnal benefit
which will require attention indite timo.
It seems lo be agreed thai the Do
minion election w'il take place before
another session ol parliament. In ibis
province lhe contest will be a lively
one. In every district tlie Conservatives will have to fice the Liberals.
The latter are well oiganizcd and lheir
candidates are already in (lie field.
Mr, Ralph Smith, who was defeated
by Mr. li yden lasl summer lor llie
Provincial legislature is their candidate.
Whom the Conscrwlives will oppose
to him is as yet uncertain, although
there is little doubt but that tbe pres
cut incumbent, Mr. A. Haslam, can
have the nomination if he desires.
Thc settlers of [Sell,** Coola are complaining of tlie want of mail facilities
aiul with reason. They should have at
bast a monthly mail. The fact is that
while the I Join.ni. in government has
heen liberal about subsidies anil expenditures in many directions it has never
been liberal with the back country. It
seems to thick that Clod made llie coun
try for the cities antl hence it erects
costly piles there in lhe shape of post
offices, custom houses, court houses etc.
to satisfy the M. Ps who always reside
in the cities. Ifa little more attention
were paid to developing the country,
allowing thc vanji*, buildings to wail,
the cities and [he country would he
more flourishing'.
The appointment o( Hon. Mr. Davie
as chief justice of liritish Columbia has
been foreshadowed for some time, li
gives general satisfaction. The only
regret is thai it removes him from lhe
field "f politics and legislation, tn the
l.iucr of which lie had been especially
useful. As a party leader he had no
superior in the ranks of thc Government
forces. !(<��� lollowed the Hon. John
R i!i.on, one ol lhe ablest and most as
I ne polititians that ever set fool in
11" ' h Columbia, and suffered nothing
'-' ' imparl m. II , boldness, public
-pint, industrj and ability made liim at
mice conspicuous. Who will lake Ins
!>����������� as a party leader? We shall
soon know, and ii is, therefore, idle to
-date. With a new premier will
come  a   recasting   of   ihe    executive
We republish elsewhere a list of
those who have subscribed to the fund
for the new cemetery. Others who have
subscribed will please pay to the committee, who will at once complete the
can-ass, and then call a public meeting
to which they will report, and which
will elect a hoard 10 take charge of the
work. Spring is approaching and it is
desirable that the ground should be
cleared and put in a suitable condition
for cemetery purposes as speedily ;is
practicable. When thc matter was taken up last fall it was late, and deep
snow coming on, it was thought nothing
colud be gained by pushing the matter
farther at that time; but the peiiud has
now arrived lor action and we. hope the
committee Mill meet with a generous
response in their onerous task of canvassing and collecting. All subscriptions actually paid will be acknowledged
in these columns.
Representatives hesitate to agree to
the senate appropriation nf $500,001- to
begin construction uf arable to Honolulu,
on the groUit-d that there is no preceitent
for construction of ocean cables at cost of
tt tive mine), t. Hut other nations do nut
hesitate to spend public money for cable
connection between one part of their dominions nntl another, and the Hawaiian
islands will be part ofthe territory of lhe
I'lined Slates within lhe next two years.
'I hen this cable will be a po itic.tl necessi
ty. It will have-to be laid, and lik<* the
Nicaragua canal, it will be better for the
government to build and own it than to
furnkh the money to build it by a subsidy
aiiU leave control in a private corporatbn.
The appropriation is without precedent
because the case is without precedent,
the United States never having had domains separated from the main country
by sea, except Alaska, which is not yet
far enough developed co require telegraph
ic communication, though a cable there
will be required someiimv, and the government probably will have to build it.
Ii will lake some time lo lay the cable tn
Honolulu. As it will be a netesMty in
two years, j) is full time to begin.���ORK-
When fortune frowns and comforts fail
At home, club, church or chapel,
When custom palls aod pleasures stale-
Keep cool and���eat an apple.
Could he who duty fain would shirk
When called with Fate to grapple
But know what potent forces lurk
Within a sound ripe apple,
How eager then he'd face the fray,
(Like Bayard's charger dapple)
Take heart of grace and win the day,
Recruited by an apple.
Let fashion give our maidens bracks,
Our youth, embroidered lappels,
If only in her wildest freaks
She'll never frown down apples
Then here's to him, of fruits the king,
Whose various virtues shine
