The arrival most talked of nt Leiser's
Union store was tllftt of 1000 rolls of wall
paper from 15 cents up. How can they
-get out such pretty paicrns so cheaply?
The lumber here is generally used green
and hence shrinks, and lhe custom of
putting on cheap cloth��� "cheesing il"--
and then papering is quite common.
Whal a iraiisformaiion neat paper makes

dollars,���If one will do tho work himifclf
- a common room becomes as bright and
elegant as a pirlor. And such a variety

if he cannot be suited here.
When are they going to call a halt on
building? The demand for lumber is a**
gicatas ever, and thc Inability nf the
saw mill working night hnd day to turn
out lumber fast enough, is the only check
upon building. The new Cumberland
Hall wiih its line front shows off to capital advantage. The round top windows
with large round top door to correspond,
ihe front gable with cut shingles, with a
heavy cornice as a base, and flag pole,
surmounted with a ball, serve all together
in give it a very attractive a* pea ranee.
The Hall is greatly needed ami thc people are to be congratulated upon being
so weil provided. I. A. Mateer is the architect. x
The arrival of car load of fine furniture at Grant & McGregor's is attracting
attention. Wc found ourselves, among
others satisfying our curiosity by taking a
peep at ii. A bachelor, who had done
liis own cooking in a log cabin for years
was noticed busily engaged 111 examining a Chinese cupboard. Whether he
was studying the wishes ofa prospective
Mrs. we were unable to determine, until
he passed from that to some elegant child
ren's rockers; and a chest of drawers.
What were wc looking at? An extension
dining tabic, of course; that and some
easv high back oak chairs, and a writing
desk divided our attention. A lazy fellow was looking at the lounges, of which
there was a variety; and some ladies
were enquiring thc price of some plush
rockers. What a place to study human

The Big Strike���Fourth of July-
End of tho California Intematiou
al Exposition���Fruit Cheap for
Want of Transportation.
'Frisco, July 8th���The biggest railway
strike ever known to history is now in
full sway throughout lhe larger part of
the United States Although the principal is at Chicago where it originated,
Sacramento and Oakland are not idle,
The militia and regulars are pouring into Sacramento, but the former are of little or no llie, for when ordered to charge
onthestrikers ihey removed the cartridges
from their guns and marched back to the
armory. Should any more regulars be
sent out of 'Frisco they will have 5000 laboring men to stop or try to stop them,
Oakland's strikers spent a very busy
Fourth of July. To tell the truth they
really did not begin until the Fourth, although the strike was on the 281b of June
The locals weie allowed to run until the
Fourth, but on that day every local was
stopped. Whenever and wherever po*.si
ble the employes seized and "killed"
thc engine. Since that date 115 Oakland
engines have been killed, but beyond
'"killing" engines and deranging switches
putting freight cars across the track, and
otherwise obstructing trams, the strikers
have done nothing desperate, it is rumored lhat an attempt will be made to
move trains in Oakland to morrow even
if the troops have to take a hand in it.
The Sacramento strikers are a liulc more
industrious, trying to destroy Pulmans,
and even ordinary coaches, and when
U. S. Marshall Baldwin attempted to
stop them he almost climbed the "golden
siairs". Then the militia was sent for,
It is a common sight to ^ce a soldier and
a striker go and have a drink together,
while the majority of soldiers wear the
strikers badge.
Large numbers of tourists here are

A large number of hoodlums are destroy

The Fourth of July��� Indfepfndance
Day���and the closing of the Qreat Fair
were rather tame, The parade was
nothing extra owing to the lack of nation
al guards, and regulars. The Fair was
the same as usual, except that the attend
ance was far ahead ofany yet, and there
was more music. The aitendence is still
as large as usual, but consists mostly of
ladies looking for bargains; exhibits are
going for 1 mere song. It is a common
sight to see a large bundle of Turkish
rugs, fancy dishes, and other such notions
get off a car and walk away, no locomotion being visible. The Fourth was a
little better than any other day except for
a few crackers, and extra fire alarms.
Vuung America paid little attention to it.

A Scotch Picnic.
A party nf young people��� mostly
Scotch, and all single but a musician who
was allowed along on account of his mus
ical abilities���left Cumber! ind on Saturday evening for an outing. The large
chariot of Wood & Fitzpatrick, and two
horse spring wagon belonging to their
outfit were filled with a merry party.
They drove down through Courtenay and
returned later, stopping at the Courtenay
House where they had supper and
danced until near midnight It was a
very pleasant affair. But lhe drive home
through the forest fire was a thing to be
remembered. For nearly a mile after
they had reached near where onco flourished tlie Farmers Home the lire had
ruged, leaving blackened slumps. 'Ihc
air was filled with smoke, and a lurking
sense of danger from falling trees made
part of the journey interesting. From
this point nothing was encountered until
lhe forest fires wiihin a mile of Cumberland were reached. Here was a ihrillng
sight. Thc burning brush bla/ed fiercely
while the tree*, were snapping and crftCk"
llngi sending their red glare Tn everv direction. The current of nir produced by
ihe narrow channel through the woods
made by the road, carried ihe tires along
its course nnd lit up the marginal trees
with a menacing glow. They iccmed
like huge wicks drawn out of the earth,
blazing their entire length, Overhead
lh**! flames shot out their long forked
tnngUUS. while burning leaves and branches fell into the road. Happih the nielli cers escaped lhe falling trees as tliey
literally passed through a "sea of fin;".
It was an awfully grand and weird scene
and brilliant beyond conception. The
star veiling clouds gave full effect to ihc
lurid tlamcs, while the full orbed moon
low down in tlie east where the cloud cur
tains did mn reach, looked like a great
ball of fire Sending its burning rays askance through lhe trees. When the char
iot had passed through lhe zone of fire it
was upon the Confines of the town, and
thc great fue-lash of the foresi seemed
urging the red monster onward.

The Cost of Keeping a Cow.
The question of tha ooat ot keeping a cow
is frequently askod. How many eows can
be kept on an acre of pasture, etc 1 Of
course theae things depend so much upon
circumstances that only an approximate
estimate can be arrived at. The amount
nf food necessary aud the amount of dairy
product which it is possible to obtain from
it Ib problematical and dependent upon
varying conditions.
A recent experiment ot the profitable
amount of food necessary to support a milch
cot* is an Interesting one. There were ten
cows in tlie trial, and each was fed a ration
Consisting of eight pomuln grain and twelvi
pounds hay al tlm beginning aud wlikli
was gradually increased until it reached
luir-leen pounds grain and tweiity*seveii
-pounds in--., when by easy stages it w
decreased to the original amount.   During
the  period thai    the   i-*;perinu-lil   covered
note wm kept of the eoil of fund consumed
by eaoh ooWi together with hat milk yield
Aid its butter value,rvaJiluloniiUH'il hy ohl
lost tost. The cheapest ration cont 18,8
renin per day, and -uvi- an average profit
of 7-7 centi per OOW per day. An loorOMQ
of 8,0 conlM per day in the cost of the ration
gave 0,9 cents aa the daily profit per
A further Increase of dally cost of ration
to 26,1 cents yielded a imaller profit ihan
the cheapest ration, ss it reduced the gain
to fi.ll uentapcr cow per day. The inference from this phase of the experiment
is, in the Opinion of I lie station, that tln-re
is a medium ration on whioh cows thrive
best, and further that It is one th;
dairymen rarely attain. The cause for
llu- latter condition ia owing to the tend
e :��*y to underfeed rather than overfeed
Tlie experiment clearly indicates the great
difference that exists in cows as regards re
sua. Home responded immediately to increased quantity of food given, while others
were tardy in showing any Improvement in
milk yield, and then only ia Insignificant
amount, the variations iu this particular
bt)ing-from 22 centa to iii cents for the
aame period. The lesson ofthe experiment,
as we comprehend it, is that a careful
study of each member of a herd ia essentially
necessary if the largest possible profit is to
1 dlow. One of the cows in this trial would,
on the basis of her performance, furnish a
yearly profit of f61,50 ; another but tJ.U.iX)
for the same period, while still another
would only yield a gain of $1*1.70 in a year.
All these cows would furnish ahout the
same quantity of milk and butter yearly,
I- it varied iu a marked degree in the cost
o' food necessary for its production, Au
illustration is furnished by the cow credited
with the larger profit. Assuming that she
is iu milk ."100 days in each year, and that
her profit making period covers six years,
her earnings during that time will equal
ten per cent, compound interest nn au
investment of $208. The smaller profit,
cow under corresponding conditions, and
lor an equal period, will only yield so large
a rate of interest ou SlOlj. Language
fails to add imporlance lo tliese figures
aa to the necessity of knowing from the
commercial standpoint, all that is to be
known about every member of a dairy
Gathering Butter,
OfteutimbB belli Ihe farmer's wife and
professional dairymen experience consider
able trouble in gathering the butter into 0
solid mass, even after it appears in the
ohurn In amall granules and floats about in
the buttermilk. The usual plan is to muni
pulale with llie dash until the butter can
be removed from the churn in a more or leas
compact form. Thus treated, It loo often
presents a greasy appearance, and by lhe
time the usual washing and the proper
quantity of salt is well worked in,the granules are mostly broken, and the result is
that the output is marketed at a low price-
Very much of this trouble can be avoided
by 11 simple process, easily understood, and

The General  Purpose Cow.
Beef production and milk production iu
the  same animal  are often useful   tn thu
farmer, but should not he Ibe aim of him
who desires to receive ihe greatest it mt
of profit from 1 ht- dairy.   A first-class beef
and milk and bulter cow, Combined ill thc
ons animal, is rarely, if ever aeen ; either
the beef lemluncy will prevail, or lhe dairy
qualities. All animals require ao much
fond for support, and the balance that they
nre ab hi to digest goes to keep up heat, in
the body and to the production of fat,
This fat will not be evenly distributed,���
half in the animal frame ami half in tho
inllb*pall< If the animal has been bred long
in ibe hue uf beef production ralher than
milk ami butter, the greatest amount of
this fat will go to beef, ami the reverse.
The first-class dairy cow cannot he made
very fat while in good  How of milk.    She
oannot digest enough rich food above thu
amount required to maintain support to
deposit a large amount of fat on her hones
and maintain a heavy flow of milk at the
same time. Tlm general purpose cow, theu
is not a strict reality, though there may be
gocd milking strains ut beef breeds, which
are uaoful  where beef is the main object.

The system of farming carried on in

al lhe majority of men upon the land
have not been trained as farmers, the
tendency of these suttlera being to confine
their attention to growing a single species

climate render her productions abundant
and varied. It must alwaya be remember-

The plague, which ia deacribed hy medical
men as almost exactly similar in appearance
and symptoms to " the great plague ot
London," which devastated that eity in
llilj.'i, waa noticed firat in Canton about the
end of April, prior to which date there had
been a period of prolonged drought, writea
a correapondent.
The firat sign observed waa the appearance of 1 houeanda of rata, swollen and evidently dying crawling up from the open sewers
audthehousesof that abominably filthycity.
Theae vermin are invariably the precursors
of alt such viailationa in Southern China,
and every year thuy give notioe of the
appearance of the plague in 1'akhoi, where
it appears In be almost endemic. The disease ia of a bubonic character, with purplish or black swellings iu the glandular
rvgiotia, iu thu groin, armpit, under tiie
kueea and iu tho neck, accompanied by
terrific fever, the temperature going at a
bound up io 105 and over 10(1.   It is

Very strong meu have resisted tho attack
for two daya and then succumbed, but aa
many as SO per cent, of those attacked in
Canton died in one day. Those who held
out for three or tour days generally recovered, but they were very few. Six thousand fatal cases are known to have occurred in one district in Canton���in the old
Mohammedan quarter of the oity���within
a week, these figures being checked hy tho
number of cofiiua given out for the burial
ofthe dead by one charitable Institution.
A foreign missionary reahlent iu Canton

atill, and the inhabitanta who oould do ao
were fleeing into the country, while those
who remained were endeavoring to stay the
progreaa of the terror hy the moat extravagant "joss pidgin," or worship of their
idola, vain rites in which the higheat ollieers
of the Government joined, Several medical
and other experts were dispatched from
Hongkong to inquire into the cause of
the plague, and they ull agreed that it
waa due primarily to the incredible filth,
the abominable habits and the poverty of
tho Cantoneae, aided, no doubt, by the prolonged drought, which caused the filth in
thr. open Bawera to germinate into hideous
forma of life.
Some people believe that tho fondness of
the Cantonese for rata as an article of food
ia largely accountable for the pestilence,
which the rata caught firat from eating tho
feBtering contents of the aewera. There
may he something in this, for it ia a fact
that none ol the European residents of Canton or Hongkong have beeu attacked by
tho plague, whioh is entirely confined to
the ChineBo. Nor in one hospital, whore
over 400 patients lay, 300 of whom died in
a few houra, wore any of the attendants at-
tacked. I myself aaw, however, one oase
of a European being carried off by au ex-
aotly similar plague in 1'akhoi in 1S87,
when the Chinese there were dying at the
rate of over 100 a day. The man lived aa a
Chinese, dwelling among them and eating
their food. So far aa I can learu, this ia the
only instance on record of the bubonic
plaguo in 1'akhoi, Canton or Hongkong
affecting others than natives.
By the 7th inat, on onu amall Btreot
Canton out ot a population of 170 only 40
were left alive. Whole families had hei
carried off in many districts. Kven the
thieves who went to rob the houses of tli
lead were in many instances carried off by
death before they could escape with their
plunder, and lhe native duoturs were found
dead in their sedan chairs aa tliey wero
being carried to aee their patients.
Tho plague seems to have reached Hongkong about the Nth inst. aud on the lOlb 40
deaths a day were recorded in one small
district called Tinpmgshan, and since theu
the mortality has been aomewhat chocked
hy th�� exertions of the sanitary authorities, but at lhe linu* of writing there are
from '10 to 40 deaths a day in the colony,
being ahout (il) per cent, of those attneked,

colony being put on very abort allowance,
and no water being available to Hush the
drains, which in many parts of ihe colony
were in a filthy condition.
Indeed, from a sanitary point of viow, iu
the more crowded parts of Hongkong,
where the Chinese are packed more densely
than any other human beluga r-ouhl bear,
the surroundings aro very little better than
at Canton, Antl the same may be t-.tid of
many parts of Shanghai, At thia port atepa
are lifting taken to guard agaiuat thu plague
being earned in from Hongkong, but as we
have abundance of fresh water at our docks
and have lately bad exceedingly heavy
rains it ja not likely that the pestilence
will visit ua, though there ia always the
danger of similar visitations wherever a
large Chinese population herds together.
Nothing oau change their filthy habits, antl
no Iwing la Strong enough to induce thom
lo observe the moat rudimentary aauitary
laws, Thia fact ahould not bu loat sight
of by (hose who would allow the Chinese
into America without restrictions, and who
foolishly think that they can be made
conform wilh any regulationa for their own
or the public's safety, I am advised by
telegraph, heavy rains havo fallen in Hongkong, and the authorities there aro in hopes
of the plague abating.
At a meeting of the Sanitary Board, a number of papers in reference to the pestilential
disease were submitted. The Captain Superintendent of Police on the 20th of April
reported the appearance of thc diaeaae in
Canton, and in order to ascertain what pro-
cautionary measures ahould be taken, it
waa submitted to the Colonial Surgeon. Dr.
Ayers, who communicated with the Conaul
at Canton, and received iu reply a report
from Dr. Ronnie, dated the 28 th of April,
thia the symptoms were described as
" With or without premonitory warning
in the shape of malaise or chill, there ia a

Such are, bi icily, the symptoms at thu lic-
t-itiiiiu-' oi tbu disease." The report was
communicated to the Colonial Surgeon, aa
well aa the Sanitary Board, and precautionary measures, in the way of flushing drain,
etc., were adviaed.
On the 10th inst. the Colonial Surgeon
and the Acting Superintendent of the Civil
Hospital reported that there were 20 cases
in oue ward at the Tung Wah Hospital;
that there bad been several deaths from
the disease; that there would be more
within the neit 24 hours, and advising the
isolation of persons attacked.
During the diacuaaion which followed the
presentation of these documents the Colonial
Surgeon aaid the diaeaae waa one entirely
of poverty and filth, but there was no
necessity for getting up a scare about it.
Dr, Lowson expressed tho belitf that the
disease waa more ohemical than bacteriological, antl that a few days' good rain
which would wash out the filth would alao
wash out the poison. Immediately after

Pr, J. VV. Van Horn a physician of Wil
liamaport, came to Philadelphia the other
day with a patient suffering from an ei
-arged head. The enlargement ot th
beau, with which the patient ia afllicled, ia
a persiuteiit one and it appears that al
attempts to reduce it or even to check
its progress have beeu futile. The man's
bead has now increased nearly eight inches
in circumference, and It is atill growing.
He ia :t;"i years old. When he was 2
wore only a ti*} hat.
The man waa brought for examination
by medical experts at defleraon Medioal
College, where it is said a similar caae
figured at one of the clinica a abort time
ago. The examination showed that the
patient was suffering from acromegaly, the
term used for a recently diacovered diaeaae
that takes the form of au enlargement of
the bones. The interest of the physicians
in the caae iB owing to iti uncommon and
novel character.
Dr. Van Horn Bald: " People might be
inclined to laugh at the idea of enlarged
heads affording a aerioua problem in

they are just now among the moat puzzling conditions confronting physicians.
Thia patient complains that when he
tries to exercise his brain, he haa feeling
as though something within hia akull was

stage of acromegaly. I happen to know
that several auch cases are being treated by
physicians who have practically discovered
the diaeaae, and during the past winter
have lectured at the medical oollegea and
written on the subject.
"At a Jefl'eraon clinic, at whioh I was

Of all the ilia that flesh is heir to perhaps
none causes the sufferer keener anguieh,
and few are nv-re persistent and more difficult to eradicate from the system thau that
nervous disease known as sciatica. The
victim of an aggravated form of this malady
suffers beyond the power of words to express
and it is with lhe utmost reluctance that
the disorder yields to any course of treat
ment intended for its cure. Hearing that
a rather remarkable cute had been effected
in the caae of Mr. William Baptist, a ro

vesting thu turnip crop during a spell of
wet, cohl ami disagreeable weather, he was
attacked hy sciatica. '.Only those whu have
passed through a similar experience can tell
what he suffered. He saya it was something
terrible. The pain waa almost unendurable
aud would at times cause the perspiration
to <m/.i- from every poru. Sleep forsook his
eyelids. Ilia days wero days of anguish and
night brought no relief. Heputable physicians weru consulted without any appreciable benefit. Remedies of various binds
were resorted to and hia condition waa worse
than before. The limb affected began to
decrease iu si/e, the fiesh appeared tu bu

a withered aspect. Its powor of sensation
grew leas aud leas. It appeared aa a dead
thing and aa it grew more and more helpless it is -tittle wonder that the hope of
recovery began to fade away. All through
the long winter he continued to Buffer, and
towards apring waa prevailed upon to try
Dr. Williama'Pink Pilla. He commenced
using them and anon felt that they wer
doing him good, and hope began to revive.
By the time he had takeu throe boxes tho
pain was eased aud tbe diaeased limb began
to aasumu a natural condition, He continu
ed the uae of the remedy until he had taken
twelve boxes. In courao of time he was
able to resume work aud to-day feela that
he la completely cured. He has since recommended Dr. Williams' Pink Pilla to others
with good results,
An analysis shows that Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills contain in a condensed form all
the elements necessary to give new life to
the blood and restore shattered nerves.
They are an unfailing specific form all
diseases arising from au impoverished con.
dition of the blood, or from an impairment
of the nervous ayatem, auch as Iosb of appetite, depression of spirits, anu-mia, chlorosis or green sicknesa, general muscular
weakneaa, dizziness, loss of memory, loco-
motor ataxia, paralysis, teialica, rheumatism, St. Vitus' dance, the after electa ol
la grippe, and all diseases depending upon
a vitiated condition of the blood, such as
scrofula, chronic erysipelas, etc. They are
also a specific for the troubles peculiar to
the female system, building anow the blood
and restoring the glow of health to pale and
sallow cheeks, In tho case of men they
effect a radical cure iu all caaea anting from
mental worry, overwork or excesses.

CHAPTER XIV (Continoid.)
I could read the verdict of the jury in
the foreman's face before he delivered
tt for himself and his companion*.
Tbey found that I had been guilty of
adultery with Mr. Sabine on various occa-
liona, and more particularly on that when
I bad visited the yacht. And the judge,
without any commcut, gave effect to their
finding iu what Mr. Wylie told me were the
usual terms.
I felt stunned, and juat rememlier Mr.
Wylie giving me hia arm and leadiug me
out of Court.
Here I waa a divorced woman, mined
aud diagraced for ever, a thing to be shunned aud avoided aa if plague-stricken, and
yet, at- I shall have to answer for it in the
laat day, aud iu a Court where all hearts
are open, aa absolutely and wholly innocent
of the foul charge brought against me as a
child could bo.
I only juat remember being helped into
my brougham and driven rapidly haek with
Mra. Forteseue to Saokville Street, The
next thing 1 remember la waking up aa if
from a long sleep and seciug that the room
Waa darkened and that there were medicine
bottlea about, and that Mra. Forteseue .waa
aea ted by my bedside,
" Now, you are to lie perfectly quiet,
dearest child," aaid she ; " aud you are not
even to talk to me. If you do, 1 ahall bave
to leave you and band yim over to a hospital uurae, which I'm aure you wouldn't
like.    So lie still and keep quiet,"
1 smiled languidly and triad to ait up in
bed, but found 1 had not the strength. Mra.
Forteseue, however, managed to prop mo
up with pillows. Then ahe sponged iny
face and handa with llau do Cologne and
water, and gently curled my hair, which I
noticed had been cut to about a third of ita
Theu alio gave mc a glass of champagne
and milk.
"This ia what you have been living on,
my sweet, for nearly a fortnight," she aaid
"and now yon must lie down again."
Juat as docilely us a child, 1 did exactly
aa she told mo, aud so lay for aome hours,
aa it seemed to mo, watching the pattern
of the wall-paper aud counting tbe taaaels
on the fringea ot tho bed hangings.
Then a stout tall man came who fell my
pulaeaudBmiled pleasantly.
"You will soon be able to be moved," he
aaid. "J think we must Bend you to
Torquay, or, ut auy rate, somewhere south.
Meantime you muat be kept quiet, and you
muat drink champagne whenever Mra.
Frrteaeue here lulls you to do ao. We all
want to get you away from here and to aee
the rosea In your obeeka. But we can't do
that until you are atrong enough to be
I muat indeed have boen terribly weak,
for thia pretty little apeech aeemed almost
aa interminable to me as the summing up of
the judge himself. It quite tired me out.
I remember Mrs, Forteseue banding me a
bunch of violets, which I smelt, and then
kept iu my fingers. "They come from Nice
my dear,'1 aho said, "where we will go in
the winter, if you will only do as you are
told, aud get atrong agaiu. Aa aoon aa you
oan lie moved we will leave town, and tbe
aea air will bring back the roses."
Then ahe aat down and took up a book,
nodded at me kindly over the top of it,
and began to read, or pretend to read, with
admirable industry.
I Waa now Biiflioienlly recovered to realize that I waa indeed far weaker than 1 had
supposed. So I allowed my eyes to close
dreamily, aud from weakness, for it could
not possibly be weariness, fell asleep again.
I found afterwards, what 1 did not then
know, that tliey hail saved my lifo by
morphia, which h.id been actually forced
into my veins through a tiny little syringe
witb a point uo larger than a nnedle.
1 found also that for aome days iny life
hail been despaired of; that Mrs, Kortesone
had never left my bedside that Mr. Sabine
had called twice and sometimes three times
every day; and that the Very Reverend the Dean had left town for the
Cathedral Clq'ie on the evening of tho trial,
and the Sunday after had preached a
most affecting sermon, in the delivery of
which bis voice was frequeu-ly choked
with emotion, while the eligible wldowa
and spinsters, who formed thu bulk of the
congregation,   hud sobbed audibly,
The senium was afterwards printed by
special request, und my father had actually
the assurance in send a copy of it to myself
aud another to Mrs, Knrtescuo, with his
own precious autograph ou the title page,
"A signature, my dear," said Mr*-.
Forteacue, "which before he go'* his
deanery, tbe smallest money-lender in
England would uot, have lunched witb a
pair of tongs."
Aud I could not help laughing, for I
knew that, when we were living al Oaaul-
aton, my father waa perpetually writing to
advertising inoney-lendera, who never ao
muoh aa condescended tu even answer his

OHAP-hm xv,
We found Torquay n place perfectly Intolerable, tilled wilh rich parvenus, and
oppressive witb its glare of stucco. Wu
were told uf pleaaunl places inland ; Totness
among others, and Paignton, now a mere
salmi!, of Torquay, were both mentioned,
Theu glowing descriptions were given ua of
tbo magnificent ecenory of the Dart and uf
Dartmouth Harbnr. Ultimately we decided
upon giving a trial to a place very little
knowii.bnt certainly mme the lens desirable
on that account. We pitched mi Lvdall.un
extraordinary little village on the Cornwall
coast, somewhere about ten miles distant
from tbe nearest railway station,
Tbe houses in I.ydull are built ol stone,
and roofed with slate, both Cornwall pro.
ducts, The walls tint nf atone, for there
are no hedges to divide tbo flelda. The
Vicar, who Is rich ou sixty pounda a year,
a atone house, and an acre of silt marsh
known as the glebe, ia the only man of
importance, with thc exception of the land*
lord of the small inn, who is also proprietor
of oue or two shabby stone villas, which be
lets furnished for the season at a very fair
To Lydall accordingly we went, and there
I once again begun to feel myself,    A pony
carriage, much as I should have enjoyed t,
waa out of the question. The Cornish
roads would kill any tleoentponyin a week;
but thoro wns bhe Cove, ul.vj.ys pleasant
and beautiful, and u" entirely lann-lookeil
aa the Uay of Sail I'Yancisoo.
We used to haunter about ihe lanes, and
sit ou tho beach and distribute ligs ami
sweetmeats among the children, who were
f;roasly ignorant and poverty stricken, but
n vigorous health,
Only fancy village children, who have
heard the cuckoo all lheir lives and do nut
even know ils name.
'���I have found, my dear," sail Mrs.
Forteseue one evening, "two exceptions
to the uniform and monstrous si upolity of
thia place,"
"Who or what arc they?" I Inquired,
" They arc the ostler here at the inn, and
an old vagabond who is strongly suspected of being a poacher, but who Is one
of the most amusing rascals with whom I
have ever talked. Tbe osllur is believed
to kuow rather moro about French brandy

a aciindat,for he is a very civil man indeed;
but the fact is uot a secret here. Tbey Bay
that he was once a gentleman, but be liim*

Aod ao our daya paaaed pleasantly enough-
We lived, so Mrs. Forteseue declared, likt
duchesses, except in the one matter of
salon accomodation, and we lived tor next
to nothiu*-,
41 We j, e not saving money, my dear, we
are a'miit m king it," Mra. Forteacue
uaed to say. -- It ia a place of enchantment
and of perfect solitude."
We were t% nding, aa she repeated thia,
in the little gardin outside our house, which
w.ui devoted according to the Btaaon to
rosea, hollyhocks, mignonette, aweet peas,
aud almost every variety of garden produce.
Suddenly we became aware that Lydall
en masse���-the man, women, and children���
waa making ita way down to the Cove.
" It oan't be the Plymouth boat, Miriam,"
said Mrs. Fortesoue. "That doesn't come
today.    Come along, get your hat,"
I did aa 1 waa tola, and we hurried down
to the Cove. A steamer waa perceptib'e
neariug atraight for tbe narrow channel.
As ahe grew nearer, we could see lhe white
The solitary Coaatguardsman politely
offered ua hisglaae(aud lowered bis sliuulder
to afford a convenient rest for that weather-
beaten instrument, which, if village report
were but half true, had more than once
aerved bim in good stead as a useful and
handy substitute for a constable's trim-
Mrs. Fortesiue took the first poop, and
without oommeut handed ihu glass to me.
I looked through it,and saw ataudiii-1 urect
in the very bowa of the vessel, and Scanning
the ahore through a Held glass, no other
person than (Jeorge Sabine.
Mrs. Forteseue took my arm and tried to
hurry me towards our houae.
" We shall have to meet, dear child," she
whispered; " and the thing had better not
be done quite in open vestry. Let us avoid
the parson aud the olerk, and the ohurch-
warden, and all tbe other old women as
long as we can posalhly do ao."
But a strange fascination rooted me to
the spol, and as the vessel steamed through
the narrow little pass lie tween the clills Into
tbe Cove, I heard tbe words "letgo," called
out in a voice that I knew only too well;
and immediately afterwards the put! ot the
engines ceased, and tho click and rattle of
the cable struck my ear as diatjuctly as the
tick of a large watch.
"We must goin," Baid Mrs. Forteseue,
"and we muat leave word or semi down
word which will look better, that you cannot
possibly Iw aeeu until eleven o'clock to*
niorrn v morning. Eleven o'clock la alwaya
an excellent time,"
We went in and gave our instructions.
It was exactly as Mra, Forteacue bad pre-
dialed, Hefore ten minutes had passed,
Mr. Sabine had called at the bouse, had bad
hia answer, had left his card with Yacht
Evangeline R.Y. .**��. in the earner of it,
and had made hia way back   to the Cove.
"The village w-ll talk, my dear," aaid
Mrs. Fortesoue; " but it will all be about
the yacht, and everybody will be mad for
permiaaioo to go on board her. Thoy will
be rowing round ber till sunset, and witb
daybreak to-morrow morning, and tbey
will be trying to aell him egga and butter,
and poultry and meat, and all that kind of

tbe innkeeper did not go alongside with
some bottles of British brandy, and his
Gospel oath in his mouth that tbey had
never paid duty, whioh would be strictly
true, though not exactly in bis own sense,
And now you muat po to bed at once, or the
Cornish roses iu your cheeka will be fading

Next morning at eleven we were in our
little parlor and seated at the window.
Within a minute of the time, Mr. Sabine
came swinging up the road witb tbe aame
long, lithe, panther-like step.
ills Immense boarbouud slouched aloug
after bim, and as the master paaaed through
our garden gates, the hound iu obedience
to a gesture coiled himself uu outside them,
and lay down with auch a dangerous look

I rose to meet him as ho entered the
room and held ont my hand. 1 uu happy
and glad to Bee him, aud 1 know my face
must have   told him as much.
Then he greeted Mrs, Forteseue, aud then
he somehow settled himself in a wicker-
work chair.

"high and dry In this curious little nook.
1 am told that there ia no doctor within

Also there is no local reporter, and consequently uo list nf fashionable arrivals.
We might almost bo at St. Helena or Aa-
cenalon. Itis delightful to be for onco in
a way in a pretty place, and to have it all
to yourself. Mrs. Forteseue, 1 am shocked
to see you here, You ought by this time
to have bound the Dean to yonr chariot
wheels, aud to he driving witb him round
the Cathedral Close,"
And then we all laughed, a hearty,
genuine laugh, that did all of ua good.
Presently it was settled that, we Bhould
take a stroll, and as we passed out through
the street we found thai public curiosity
had subsided. Kvery body had gone down
to the Cove lo stare at tbe yacht ami her
crew, and to drive little bargains with thom,
if possible, And ao, as Mrs. Forteseue declared hersolf unequal to a tramp through
the chalk, Mr. Sabine, audi, and Serge,
sauntered up lho bill together.
Presently we reached a large field of grecu
wheat just beginning to ahow st realm of gold
uu the light soil under the Keen sun, "Waves
of shadow" passed over il, and all Nature
Beemed alive aa We crossed over the liltlo
A lark waa singing gloriously, hovering
over its nest. A blackbird dartedoiit from
the hedge with its noisy shriek closu under
our feet, aud right across our path. Then
a shy liltle tield mouse showed itaelf scut-
teriug about betweeu tbu ears. And in n
beeoh tree overhead a bright-eyed squirrel
sat up and looked saucily al ua aa hu went
on shelling his mast.
The twitter of the small birds would bave
aeemed petulant but for tho drowsy bum
of lhe insects and the strange whirr of the
corncrake, now near, uow distant, and
obviously trying to lure ua from the vicinity
of its near.
We rested at last on another stilt* which
led Into a haylield, that made the air heavy
with its wealth of clover. I sat down
almost out of breath on the step. Serge
coiled himself up at my feet. Mr. Sabiue
leaned against the top rail shook himaelf
much after the manner of hia own hound,
aud theu lit a cigar.
"lam glad to Bee you," he broke silence ;
"looking better than I hoped. You must
have had a terrible trial, aud a wretchedly
dull timo of it. Wa have not, however,
long to wait. My lawyers tell me that we
can be married ou this very day four months,
which will be the day after what they call
the decree is nude absolute. Four months
seems a long time when you are waiting,
but it passes rapidly enough. I suppose it
would have been more prudent not to have
come near you. But in the lirst place 1
could uot possibly keep away from you,
and in the next place 1 wish you to kuow
once again from my own lips, that I shall
come co claim you. Meantime 1 would
hurry you away with me from here to the
South, hut I tun resolved that uo one shall
have tbe chance of speaking evil of you'*

"Youare very good," I answered chokingly, "far more good than Idcaervc." And
then I burst out crying.
Well, he comforted me, of course iu hia
own way, aa tenderly aB if I was aome little
village maid who had fallen down on the

A journey scorns always shurl when it is
downhill,and shorter still when it is happy.
Mra. Forteacue had spied ua, and was in
waiting for ua at tbe little cottages by tbe
Vicarage corner. Then of course, conversation began at once; It waa commonplace
brisk,and cheerful,and principally sustained
by Mra. Forteacue herself.
No power on earth, ahe declared, would
make her go on board the yacht, or allow
me to go. Ii, would be unlucky. The gig
might come nextmorning and row ua round
to the little island, if Mr. Sabine liked, and
we could picuic very splendidly. Meantime
lunch v aa ready, and we muat oome in. It
had been waiting aome time ; but luckily,
that didn't matter, aa everything was cold
and- the ice hadn't melted, for the very
simple and sufficient reason that there wasn't
a knob of ieo as big aa a walnut for all the
Cornish suns to melt.
So we went in and lingered over lunch,

How the time paaaed I oonnot tell; but
I kuow that the shadows were lengthening
rapidly, and the swallows flying low as we
sauntered down to the Cove.
We saw the boat pull off. We watched
Mr. Sabine apring on lo the deck, und we
waved our farewell to him from tbe sands
before we turned hack,
"Yuu ought to be a very happy woman,
my dear," Baid Mrs* Forteacue, as she sat
iutlie twilight in her chair before tbe empty
hearth, with ber tumbler of brandy aud
soda-water. "I am tired of telling you
hat I wish 1 ware half na happy aa yourself.
You are rid of that insufferable old prig, Sir
Henry; you are rid of that canting old
humbug, your father; and there ia a mau

supplies hold out, or ao long as administrative authority does not need renewal in

that threat would undoubtedly be asserting
their constitutional rights. Hut if ever a
temporary suspension of a popular right is
justifiable, it ia in auoh circumstances as
those in which the Governor now finds
himself. He had to dismiss his late Ministry becauso nearly all hia members and all
Its supporters in the House of Assembly
wero accused uf obtaining their seals by
corruption, A member of the Opposition
waa called on to form a uew Ministry. He
did so, and the Governor prorogued Parliament before the majority bad time to
bring on a vote of waut of confidence. It
was tbe Governor's intention tu get the
election trials over before the time came
for the re-assembling of Parliament, but
the dilatory tactics of the counael for tho
various defendants made repeated prorogations necessary. The Governor proceeded
under directions from tho Colonial OHice in
London, His last prorogation, which waa
made indefinite, and hia enforcement of the
revenue laws after their expiration, appear to have been in accordance with instructions from tbe Imperial Government.

iceberg on the afternoon of the aixth white

The chock was terrific. Everybody who
was standing at tho moment of contact
wa-) thrown to the lloor.
At first thc ollieers feare 1 that the vessel
would not lloat and the captain ordered
that the boats be lowered. The excited
passengers crowded up to the deck, most of
tho women weeping unit the men asking
the usual questions. The pumps were
manned just after the captain ordered down
the boats, but no water was found in the
bold. Thu order for the boats waa then
countermanded and something Ijka confidence was restored among the paaaeng��ra.
A wull of bags of Hour waa built up near
the bow. When the Hour had become thoroughly saturated it was almost aa hard and
unyielding M cement. The Ethiopia,which
hid been stopped for repairs, waa pu I ahead
after the worst damaged portion of her bow
bad been partly closed and braced. Nobody
aboard was injured and the cargo waa not
greatly damaged. The passengers subscribed 9270 for the sailors.

effective that any room where they are

remove the contents of trunks and wardrobes, aud hang on backs of chairs ; close

The tirstatep toward the safety of garments before pulling tham away is to turn

Baga of various sizes made of seersucker

Another method of fighting mot hs is as
follows: Get packing boxes, trunks and

for wrapping around articles that are to

they may have found lodgment there. Be
sure that the pockets of the garments are
turned inside out and tho Beams aud creases

articles with naphtha, fold in a sheet and

The Kind of a Woman to Know.
The woman with a loving heart ia sure
to look upon the bright aide of life, and by
her example induce others to do so. She sees
a good reason for all the unwelcome events
whioh others call bad luck. She believes
in silver linings, aud likes to point them
out to others. A week of rain or fog, au
avalanche of unexpected guests,a dishonest
servant, un unbecoming bonnet, or any
other of the thousand minor iuflictiona of
every day life have no power to disturb the
deep calm of her soul. The love-light is
atill in her eyea, whether the daya bo dark
It ia she who conquers the grim old
uncle, and the dyspeptic aunt. The cross*
est baby reaches out ita arms to her and is
comforted, Old people and strangers always
atk the way of her in the crowded atreet,
She has a good word to say for tho man or
woman who is under the world's ban of
reproach. Gossip pains her.and she never
voluntarily listens to it. Her gentle heart
helps her to aee tho reason for every poor
sinner's misstep, and she condones overy
fault. She might not serve with acceptance
on the judge's bench, but ahe ia a very
agreeable person to know.
Houso Plants.
I prefer to keep house-plants in pots al'
summer, and to keep them on the veranda
or under a shed made expressly for them,
says a correspondent. One can Iw made
iheaply by setting posts in the ground and
���oofing over with strips of lath, put close
iiiough together to break tho force of the
sun, but not olose enough to give full shade.
Under such a shelter lhe plants get tho
benefit of light, free circulation of air,
and moisture. Booauae one knowa that
attention in the way of wetering muat be
given, ahe will be likely to do the work well,
aa it is but little more labor to do it aa it
ought to be than itis to half do it, and the
importancnofthoroughness will be apparent.
Her plants wilt be likely to be under constant attention liecauae of their beiug conveniently located, and they will be pretty
sure to receive the care they ought to get
at thia season.
It ia a mistake to think you can have good
planta next winter if you nogleot or half
care for your plants in summer. Tbu fact
ia, you lay the foundation for effective
winter work al this season. You aro
looking ahead, or should be- and a littio
thought will convince you that it is foolish-
ness to expect a plant to gel along
without cure all summer, but develop, all
at once, Into a satisfactory specimen when
you gel it into thu bouse. Care for your
plants at this season and all seaHons, with
a view to their efieutlveunas later on.
A liberal interpretation of that ai-ntencc
means that at no period of its formativo existence should a plant be without the care
tl ut comes of intelligent oversight. It may
not require much care, but it will require
some; and such care as is needed should he
given, and given at the time when ll will
do most good.

The Income Tax in England.
An English writer gives aome account of
the operation of the income tax in Kngland,
Knglish peoplo have been paying this tax
now for Iwo general ions and have ceased to
question its justico or tbe propriety of the
methoila by which it is assessed, The
charge that it Is inquisitorial, aaya thfl
writer, Mr. lid ward Porritt, is regarded a a
purely sentimental and baseless, Tbe taxpayers " have absolute confidence In the
good faith of the local commlssionera for tbe
income tax and in that nf the asaoasors ami
collectors, and they know that the
secrets of their offices are aa well kept aa
those of tbo confessional." The rato of the
Knglish income tax has varied greatly from
the time of ita lirst, establishment in IH42,
when it waB 7 pence in the pound. Its
highest point was during the Crimean war,
when it touched I shilling and 4 pence in
the pound. To-day it ia at the original
figure of 7 pence, whioh ia equivalent to
about :i per cent. Incomes aggregating
about t'000,000,000 are taxed and the
revenue produced amounts tn about ��14,-
1100,000, orabout $70,000,000. The amount
of friction in the collection of this huge
sum ia comparatively slight and cases are
seldom taken into the courts. Summing
up the writer aaya:
The income tax, as it ia levied in Kngland, ia a comparatively easy one to collect.
It requires exactly thB same maehlnrey to
collect a three-penny tax as to collect _a
shilling one, and, ua an additional penny in
tho pound now brings in an additional i'-t*
500,000 to the treasury, the income tax is
naturally one to which the chancellor of
the exchequer is moat readily disposed to
turn when be ia called upon to meet a de*
ficit. The tax is one that ia paid by the
wealthy and the middle classes. The wage-
earning working classes never come into
contact with the income-tax collector.
Panic In a Menagerie.
An extraordinary aeries of accidents happened ou Tueaday in tbe menagerie at St.
Gillea-les-Bruxellee, Belgium. A box containing gunpowder, left near the entrance,
by some means exploded and aet fire to the
ilothing of a woman acting as money-taker.
The noise of the explosion and the cries of
the woman caused a panic among the people inside the menagerie. The whole of
the apectatora, about 300, made a ruah for
tlie door. In the confusion a child felt
close to a cage containing bears, and was
pulled in and torn to piecea. Another
ohild waa knocked down and trampled
underfoot by the crowd, which was in a
thoroughly terrified condition owing to tho
roaring of the animals. The canvas roof
also caught fire. The flames were soon extinguished ; and i**, waa then found that
thieves, taking advantage of the alarm,
had stolen a oaah-box containing aeveral
hundred franca, the receipts of the last
few days. This succession of disasters au
affected the wild beast tamer that he attempted to throw himself into a cage of
untamed lions, and waa only restrained
with difficulty.

the title of Lord WBiisleydale, but the
Lords, in the face of the fact that there was
not a man among them entitled to a aeat in
the Houae, except by favor of the Queeo,
actually refused at first to let Lord Wensley*
dale sit among thom because he waa only a
life Peer. Km innately, the Crown did not
give way,and there are uow a large number
of lifo Peers occupying aeata in the Upper
Chamber, whose peerage will not descend
to their eldest sons upon their death.
It Wftf. only the other day that one of tha
most distinguished of them, Lord Rowan,
died, and his eldest sou inherited not hi!
title as Lord, but merely a baronetcy poa*
sensed by hia father previous tu hia being
created a life Peer.
I may state in conclusion, therefore, that
when a Peer renders himself guilty of aoy
infraction of the law of the land, or otherwise misconducts himself previously to soiling to the title,It is entirely in the handa
the sovereign to refrain from summoning
him lo the upper house to take bia place
among the hereditary legislators.

Utah has now been admitted into thu
Union ns :i state, but poKgnmy is not
r 'cognised as a lawful condition,
The French treiity having been nt i ed

The survey of the extension of thc K.
���X- N. railway is progressing favorably,
When that is completed we may expect
contracts to be lei to clear the roadway.
The great railway strike is over and
the Men who have wantonly involved
the country in.so much trouble and expense have now to ans ver for their crime
before the courts.
The hay crop of Comox valley has tn
���i considerable extent been gathered in
prime condition. A few fanners have
finished their haying. The crop is considered above the average, and high pii*
ces nre looked for next winter.
Col. W. 1'. C. Hreckenridge appears to
be having a pretty rocky time of it.
Whether the hoodlums of his district will
be strong enough to elect him remains
lobe seen; but his return to Congress
v il not restore him to influence or r<--
-peci. He walks ihe earth the ghost of
Ins former self.
We arc pieced to note that thc Pre-
itieir at Reve.stroke announced his inten-
i nm of rc introducing lhe Small Debts
Act This will be of great advantage to
Ihc public. It shon-d not, however be ad
ministered by justices of the peace bui
by stipendiary magistrates, who should
have jurisdiction in civil cases to ihe a*
mount of $2-*o.
There has been a good deal said about
election promise-, by thc Opposition press
We can s*ty that so fur as Comox District
j.** concerned no pledges have been made
Mr. 11 tinier hns been elected on the record ofthe past four years. We bave no
fear but that he will do all he properly
*.ui for lhe di 'rr.t. or that the Govern*
nmnt will not be disposed to deal fairly
��� ith it. Heyond lhat wc can have nothing to ask.
From Victoria Colonist.
It appears that the Australian members
of the Ottawa conference were to a man
advocates of the Pacific cable. They believe that thc project is a feasible one
and that it would be beneficial toall the
countries concerned. It is evident that
they arc weary of bung forced to submit
to ii monoply in ihe matter of ocean tele-
graphing, and they bel eve that a harp
competition such as the laying ofthe I'a-
c Ilic cable would give rise to would be
b-neliciil to all the Australian colonies.
This would most probably be the case,
bat the prospect of the table being peculiarly advantageous to Australia should
not weaken the desire of Canada and
Great Britain ta have it laid.

From B. C. Commercial Journal.
Now that the smoke of thc Provincial
election is clearing away, all lhat remains
to be disposed of being a few contests in
outlying districts, it is easily to be seen
that unless all the indications are utterly
deceiving, the Davie Government has, as
we anticipated, obtained a new lease of
power and that its majority will not have
l'*en decreased, if it docs not, indeed
prove to have been augmented. The
administration was well entitled to this
renewal (if the public confidence; it has
|t2i-formcd considerable work, and it has
done it well, though all the time subjected to the hot shot of the Opposition on
both the Inland of Vancouver and the
Mainland, who, while not able to agree as
to what was the proper policy for the interests of the Province at large, had harmony enough among them to be against
tiie Government.
From Vancouver World.
The rumor is current that it is Mr.
Cotton's intention to resign his position
n ��� junior representative of this city in the
Home of Assembly. Mc will have to

upon him by Hon. Justice Crease, and

It is understood that in consequence and

Chicago has been the great storm center,
and as the atmosphere clears there it
likewise clears in other parts of the country Reports of si fillers returning to

th: transcontinental railroads ate again
being opened to traffic. It is apparent that
hi all parts of thc nation there has been
aroused a feeling of devotion to thc laws
ail a determination that lawlessness
mint be sternly suppressed.
From Victoria Times.
The iniquity of the law which calls upon candidates for the deposit of $200 has
been made more than ever apparent by
its resulti In the present election. No
lit in .with any sense of justice and a regard for fair dealing will say that it was
right to fine the four Opposition candi*
d ttes in thi*. c'lty $2<x* each for exercising
their right to aslt sulferftgcs of the people. Vet that is the practical outcome in
their case; they have been lined for be*
-oniming candidates. Not even thc
warmest Supporter of the government���
if he be endowed with ordinary honesty
will contend that they have been justly
