LONDON, Jan. 4.���A despatch from Buenos
Ayres says: "The insurgents in Rio Grande
do Sul have captured Bage after a month's
siege. Admiral Mello's fleet coutinues to
bombard Rio. Advices from Pernambuco
are that the Government cruiser Nictheroy
is ready to proceed and will sail southward
at once, accompanied by the insurgents
vessels." A despatch from Lisbon says: "It
is reported that Admiral de Gama has landed troops at the cu^'o-n house in Rio."
In reply to a question in the House today; Mr. Gladstone said thai during the
warlike operations the Rio Governmeut had
been in constuiit cuuiiuuuicatiou with tbe
British Minister to Brazil and the senior
officer of tho British fleet at Rio. British
ships were accorded the same protection as
the ships of other nations. The Brazilian
insurgents were not recognized as belligerents by Great Britain. The Government
could not undertake to interfere with the
quarrel now in progress in Brazil.
New Yobk, Jan. 4.���Captain Anderson,
of the steamship Portuguese Prince, from
Brazilian ports, which arrived today, says:
"Ten days before the Portuguese Prince
left Pernambuco, twelve naval cadets were
shot by Peixoto's soldiers. Tbe oadeta were
on beard the guardship Parahyba, stationed
in the harbor. They were accused of conspiring against the government, and it wns
charged that they intended turning the
guardship over to Admiral Mello. They
were arrested in the evening, aud at suniise
the next moriiiiiL* were taken out on the
plaza and shot to death. A number of
people gathered to see tbe execution. Th
young men were led to t he place of death
by a body of soldiers. The drums rolled
mournfully; the men were arranged in line
aud handkerchiefs placed over their eyes
At the first fire seven fell dead, pierced by
many bullets. The jthers were only
wounded. One wounded man tried to
escape and had started to run when half
dozen rifle bulls knocked hiai ljiwii.. The
rest of the condemned men wenr'alao shnt.
This execution deeply affected the populace
and filled the people with great fear of the
government. Martial law was declared
about two weeks previous to the shooting
of lhe twelve young meu. Lying in the
harbor were two cruising brigs and the torpedo chaser Aurora imported from England,
to help keep the people loyal to the government."
Captain Richards from Brazil reports that
tho national guardsmen and regulars in
President Peixoto's army have become in
volved in a broil neir one of the forts,
growing out of the reports of treiichety
there. A pitched battle ensued and 1)0 are
said to have been killed.

Gliding fast down the straightest of streets,

religious ceremony in the chapel, the body
was placed in the retort. A number of relatives and friends were present.
Despatches received here from North Sea

The Duchess of Argyll died this evening.
She had suffered for years from asthma and
bronchitis and had failed rapidly in tho last
few months. She waB the duke's second
wife. She was .ho daughter ol the Bishop

grace, in 1881, she was the widow of Colonel
Augustus Henry Anson.
The Australian invitation to the Duke
aud Duchess of Vork was noeived yesterday. It has been ac-onlcd considerable
public attention, tho newspapers regarding
it with unqualified appreciation. Many
friendly speculations are discussed by the
principal London dallif 8, and the hope is
expressed in some of the papers that if the
invitation be accepted it w.ll be celebrated
by a ceremouy which will unquestionably be
observed with the ui most interest, not only
in Australia, but also in Canada and England. The event would be the inauguration
of tho laying of the proposed Pacific cable
by Prince George. Now that the initiation
ia under consideration, this suggestion will
probably lie enthusiastically pressed,
The Duke of York's reply to the invitation of the Australian prei* iera to visit

Mitchell Doesn't Seem Anxious to Fight.
Corbett Indignant.
Jacksonville, Jan. 4 ���Cnarley Mitchell
has shown the white feather, or something
that very much resembles that article. Despite his alleged consuming desire to face
Corbett, the developments of the day seem
tu indicate that the Englishman is ready to
squeeze through any loophole to escape
meetiug the champion. That, and not the
alleged knock-nut *>f the Dm al Athletic
Club by Governor Mitchell in the courts
here this morning, was the real sensation of
the day in sporting circles.
After solicitor Christie, under coercion
from the governor, refused to have anything
to do with the test caae brought by the
athletic club, the managers of the club
began casting about for ways and means to
pull off the affair in spite of' the governor
and courts. Manager Bowden sent Harry
Mason over to Si. Augustine to aee Mitchell
and induce him to aign amended articles of
agreement. The origiual articles at Mitchell's suggestion provided that the fight
should occur "within fwo miles of Jacksonville.1' The club to-day wished to change
the clause so as to have it read that the
fight should occur withiu tho slate'of
Florida, The prupose of the club waB that
it might agree to aelect a place in the state
where there was least likelihood of interference ou the part of the authorities.
When the situation of affairs was explained
to Mitchell and he was asked to affix his
signature to the amended articles of agreement he tUtly refused to sign. He said he
would never affix his signature to paperB
unless the site for the contest was definitely
fixed. Harry Mason urged and expostulated
with the Englishman, telling him the
change was simply one of precaution in
view of tho governor's hostile attitude, but
to no avan. Mitchell' absolutely refused
to sign, aud Mason returned to Jacksonville.
It looks now as though Mitchell never
really desired to go up against the American
champion, and is taking advantage of the
difficulties under which the club is laboring.
The managers of the club are in an angry
state of mind to-night and are roasting the
Englishman in sulphurous style. Manager
Bowden said to-night that he would go over
to St. Augustine to-morrow and force Mitchell to sign the amended articles or brand
him to the world aa having shown the white
feather.
CINCINNATI, Jan. 2.���Gov. Mitchell has
telegraphed an evening paper his purpose
regarding the Mitchell-Corbetl fight thus :
TaI&AHASSEE, Pla., Jan. 2���The Corbett-
Mitchell light will not take place in Florida
unless the supremo court of this state decides that there is no law prohibiting such a
fight. It will uot be necessary to proclaim
martial law to prevent such a fight, but
were it necessary I should not hesitate to
proclaim it, as I am determined to prevent
this fight by any and all means within
reach of the executive. There can be no
doubt as to my position, aud people who
come here with the expectation of seeing
the laws of the atate violated by two thugs
and their aiders and abettors will be disappointed.
"H. L. Mitchell, Governor."
Nkw York, Jan. 2.���A special to the
Press from Jacksonville says: Corbett in unbosoming himself to some friends today,
said: "Some friends told me I waa foolish to
m-tke a match with Mitchell, and now 1
know they were right. If it were in my
power, 1 would make that fellow tight before
lie gets out of Florida. If he manages to
sneak out of this match he w ill poae as being
tin man who was guii ; to tight Corbett. I
know I can whip him, and he knows it.
Why, if the Duval .Uhletie Club cannot
pull this thing off, 1 will light him fur glory.
I am champion of the world, and 1 will atill
only be the same if I beat him, but I will
risk il all and without a dollar stake, if
neoessary to bring this fellow to time. More
than that, I will agree to name a man and
let Mitchell name two men to privately pick
the fighting giound and time for the tight.
These men need uot advise us of the lime or
place f.r the couteat until they think necessary. I will fight before as few or as many
meu as may happen to be ou the grouud.
All I want is to get at Mitchell and p ove
to the public just what he is. I am told he
refused to sign an agreemont to tight iu
piivate because he is already a fugitive from
justice in at least one state. Poppycock!
He does not want to fight, and won't if he
oan get through thia with enough false
credit to again hoodwink the public. His
game is to go ou the road and make mouey
out of bluffs and my reputation."
While Corbett was talking he clenched
his lists and pounded hia kuees to emphasize
what he said. Being asked how soon he
would be ready to tight if Mitchell signed,
he said: "Five days if Mitchell is willing,
or any other time he wants, but leave it to
the meu he and I aelect. All this, of course,
ia in event of the Duval Athletio Club being
unable to do its part in the engagement we
entered into. I say this without prejudice
to the contract Mitchell and I signed with
them."
Jacksonville, Fla., Jan. 4.���Charles
Mitchell Bigned the amended articles of
agreement to-day, under pressure from the
officials of the Duval Athletic Club. The
amended articles now provide i ha' the tight
shall take place iu Duval or St. John's
County, the latter being the County in whioh
Mitchell's   training   quarters   are
ing quarters, he found Corbett in the city.
When the champion wasahown the an ended
article8, aigned by Mitchell, he objected to
the clauses relating to the gloves. Corbett
claims that as champion, he haa the undoubted right to furnish the glovts and says
that Bowden had been led into a trap oy
Mitchell, by which the latter hopes to get
out of fighting at the last minute by raising
a dispute about the gloves. Corbett was in
a great passion, and swore that he would
not sign the amended articles, unless it was
stipulated that in case of dispute, each
principal might furnish his own gloves, said
gloves to weigh not less than five ounces.
To pacify Corbett, this additional amendment waa made, and Mitchell, when informed of the change by wire, answered
that it was satisfactory.

Gate.
San Francisco, Jan. 4.���The California
Rugby Union met laat night and voted to
pick a team to repreaent California in a
series of games with Portland, Oregon, and
British Columbia teams during the midwinter fair. The first game will bs played
ou March 1st.
The re'i��f committee appointed by Isaac
Heicht, chairman of laat week's meeting in
the Chamber of Commerce, met this morning.! There was unanimity of sentiment that
the funds obtained for relief purposes should
be expended for improvements at Golden
Gate Park. The committee decided that a
dollar a day should be the rate of wages for
all employed out of the relief fund. Yesterday morning the relief work began at the
park. At the close of the day each worker
received his dollar from the cashier on the
grounds. The same system will obtain hereafter until the improvements are completed.
Since the fiw ou t*o...'d tbe steamship
Corona occurred, the officials of the Pacific
Coast Steamship Company have decided
that shippers must strictly obey all rules
and regulations rega*diug the shipment of
combustibles. Notices have been sent out
to all interested parties by mail, and they
are notified that the greatest care must in
future be exercised iu the packing and shipment of inflammable goods. It will be
remembered that the cargo on the Corona
was damaged while she was lying at dock,
and a great quantity had to be taken out of
the vessel. Matches packed in a wooden
box and classed as "woodenware" took fire
and caused the damage. Two other fires
have occurred also from the same cause, and
the Pacific Coast Steamship Company is
anxious to prevent like occurrences in
future, hence the notices by mail.

The latest newa in connection with the

ghost of a show against the gentlemen
already named for the office."
Surveyor General Tom Kains, Victoria has

triangulation survey of the Rocky mountains
will be able to procure a great deal of the
information desired by the Club. This
survey ia interrupted just, now owing to the
fact that the specially trained surveyors
who were engaged in making it are employed
in similar work in connection with the
settlement of the Alaskan boundary. A
record of the movements of glaciers in the
European Alps has heen kept for some time,
and the Alpine Club desire to secure for
purposes of comparison a similar record for

END OF THE MATASELE WAS.
The San Francisco Chronicle has some
sensible remarks regarding the close of the
Matabele war.    It saya:
"Commissioner Cecil Rhodes has arrived
at Palapye and announces that the Matabeles are entirely subjugated and that King
Lo Bengula does not intend to return to
Buluwayo. Later advices say that reports
have been brought in hy natives that
Lo Beugula's bodyguard is rapidly dwindling and that the desire for peace is
so strong among the Matabele warriors
that many of them are voluutarily surrendering their arms. Later despatches
say that a company of English has been surrounded and exterminated, but the outcome
of the struggle has never been in auy sort of
reasonable doubt. Lo Bengula and his impis
might be as brave as the bravest, but they
could stand no chance against the South
African company, backed by the military
power of Great Britain. There might have
been a protracted resistance and much bloodshed on both sides, hut. the end of the congest could be seen Irom the beginning. Lo
Beogulu appears to be still at liberty, but his
power is broken and his prestige gone.
Next will come the rush of gold huuters
into Matabele laud. Tlie discoveries in the
TranBvaal and the reports of gold in Mash-
onaland will cenninly induce an army of
prospectors to ocuuy the territory over
-which LoBeugum has ruled, aud il is quite
possible that valuable discoveries may be
made, inasmuch as the general formation of
the country is similar to that of the districts where gold-bearing ledges���or reefs,
as they call them in Africa���have beeu
found tn great numbers."
We think that it may be assumed as undoubtedly true that not much more will lie
heard of LoBengula and his impis. If the
British had doue nothing else than overthrow
the power of the Zulus in South Africa,
their mission there would not have been in
vain. The military despotism established
in Zululand by Cbaka, which was finally
overthrown by the British in the bloody war
waged by them with Cetewayo, was one of
the crudest and most sanguinary ever established in the world at any period. Cbaka
is said during his career to have destroyed
as many as two millions of human beings.
The native tribes of South Africa nowhere
could withstand him. He had established
his power firmly over the Zulu race, perhaps
the bravest of all the African tribes, and
had organized the whole nation on a strictly
military basis devised by Himself, each sept
or tribe being formed into an impi or regiment, ready to be called out at any moment
at his command, and do whatever he ordered, no matter what. They gwe Chaka the
most implicit obedience, and if any neighboring nation offended him he was accustomed to order out one or more impis to
chastise them, or even to exterminate
them.
If the war was important he would lead
his impis in person, assuming the chief command himself. He was thus known
to        lead into
many as 30,000 men
no native chief in all
withstand him. If it

THE ESCAPE OF EVANS.
The San Francisco Chronicle remarks as
follows on the escape of Chris. Evans, the
train robber, from Fresno jail :
"The escape of Chris. Evans, lhe convicted niuiderer and train robber, is certainly no credit to the Fresno jail officials.
Here are men who were warned thai Evans
was a dangerous and desperate man, yet
ihey leave the j.il protected by only a single
guard six dnys before Evans is to be seu'-
euced to a life lerm in Folsom or Sau Qaen-
Un prison. Evans was removed from Visa-
lia because of f* ar that his friends would
h. In him to break jail, but Fresno was
thought to have no sympathy with the
dcspeittdo. It may be that only
the waiter who furnished Evans
with the pistols was concerned iu the plot,
bui. the natural suspicion is that o hers had
a hand in it, and doubtless when the details
of ins escape into the mountains uie received we shall learn that all along the way
h*s old companions gave him aid and comfort. This is not a pleasant. Buhjeol for
Caiilornians to contemplate, and th'- credit
of the state iu the east is uot belpe*! by .uch
gross defiance of law as has been seen
throughout the whole career of these train
robbers from the time when Evans and
Sontag fired upon tho officers who tried to
arrest them in Visalia down to thia escape
of the leader of the gang "
The above is quite due. Ciliforuinns
have no reason to be proud of Evans' escape. But, there is uo use in blaming the
jail authorities at Fresno. The fault is not
so much with thtm, as with the American
system of dealing with criminals. They
should have promptly hanged Evans, as a
convicted robber and murderer, and then it
would have been impossible for him to have
escaped. Hanging or otherwise depriving
of life is the only proper thing to do with
men like Evans. Mercy to such a person is
cruelty to law-abiding men, and even on
Americau principles the interest of the
majority ought to prevail over those of a
few criminals and scoundrels. But many
Americans cannot or will not Bee this. They
hold with John Wilkes, that the worst use
to which a man can be put is to hang him.
But il is the only use to which such a
man as Evans can be put���to make hia fate
a warning to others like him.

IS   YOUR   LIFE   INSURED?
A POLIOY OP LIFE ASSURANCE is the Cheapest and Safest mode of making a certain provision for one's
family. It is a strange anomaly that men should be careful to insure their houses, their furniture, their ships, their merchandise, and yet neglect to insure their lives���surely the most important of all to their families, and far more aubject to loss.
The  Gr-iat  West  Life  Assurance  Company offers an exceptionally favorable Policy, at low
raies, the security being proportionately as good as the older companies.

The (ipenixii of the Manchester ship
canal, which took place on New Year's day,
is au event of international importance and
interest. The opeuiug of t he canal at once
converts Manchester, the largest manufacturing town in England aud centre of the
coiton trade, into a seaport. The length of
the canil is about 40 miles, and can be
traversed by vesaels by night or day in ten
hours. The canal is the largest of the aort
in the world. It is 120 feet wide at the
bottom, and 26 feel deep. The largest
ocean steamers can traverse it, and it can lie
at the extensive docks that have Eeen constructed at the Manchester end. The cost
of the work was, of course, enormous, but
it is fully expected that, owing to the vast
business which will be done, it
w 11 be a dividend paying concern.
The project when before Parliament
waB Btrongly opposed by the men of Liverpool, with which Manchester will now come
into direct competition as a seaport. All opposition, however, was successfully overcome, as well as the physic.il and financial
difficulties encountered iu carrying out tho
work, and now after years of strenuous
effort the canal is at last an accomplished
fact. It remains to bo seen what its effect
will be on the trade of Liverpool. It is a
pity that the Nicaragua canal is not in
British hands. If it were its construction
would not be long delayed, and the work
when finished would be open on equal terms
to the commerce of all the world.

usually terminated it by totally exlermi-!
nuting liis opponents, hut if it was a neigh- ���
boring tribe bis usual method was, after
putting down nil open resistance to his will j
and slaughtering all who dared to oppose t
him, to form the residue who submitted |
into an impi and incorporate them in the '
Zulu nation. It was thus that he extended
hia power and increased the number of his
fighting men, despite the numbers of them
that were slain aud the multitudes Blain by
them. Thus the power of the Zulus waxed
mighty, and had it not been for the British
they would probably have extended their
dominion over all South Africa. As it was,
the power of the nation was finally broken
by the victory won by Lord Chelmsford over'
Cetewayo, and now the remnant of the Zulu
nation, broken up into petty tribes under
independent chiefs, who are often at war
with each other, is no longer formidable.
The Matabeles were originally a Zulu tribe
or impi, who had established their power
over what is now known as Matabeleland,
and had committed groat atrocities on the
native tribes wbo originally inhabited the
land. To the remnant of these, a mild und
unworlikn race, the overthrow of the Matabeles will be an unmixed blessing. Their
overthrow will also, it is likely, as the
Chronicle has pointed out, be tho firat step
to the development of an important gold
field, and the establishment of another groat
British colony in South Africa. Tho result
of the Matabele war is a distinct triumph
for civilization.

The fads are not disputed. Wheu the
ve gel arrived at San D.ego, Smith was
arieBted but immediately bailed out. The
oafe dragged along until a few days ago,
when he was discharged on a plea of insanity. Had he been a sailor before the
mast he would have been promptly tried,
convicted and punished for his crime. But
the murderer was a capiain, master of a
vessel, had the influence, backing and pro
tection of the shipowners, and it was only a
sailor whom he killed. It is no crime for a
captain or other representatives of the shipowners to kill a comm n sailor when it suits
them to do so, as was evidenced in the cuse
of Fred. Anderson at Eureka. Justice may
be manacled for a while, but a day of reckoning for wrong and unpunished crime is as
certain as fate. Thomas Jefferson said it
was the blood of m��i tyred victims that
watered the libetty trie. Surely the sailor
before the mast, has shed blood enough to
bring in the sailor's millenium,

A Talk 'Twixt my Wife and I.
(COXTRIHIITKH.)
Well, I'm kind o' glad the trouble's or'e,
At leant for a time, old Nonce
And hitting round our cheerful tiro,
I'll tell you we've all had a chance.
For altho' I'm only a digger ot coal,
Of Latin and Greek know n.iw't;
My head is just as level aa those
Whose passed their lives in thought.
I've attended all of the meetings
And listened to all the talk,
I'm glad there's heen no strike, my girl,
Grim want through here would stalk. ���
l*'or how could we help chunm at Northfield
And nut run ourselves into debt?
There never h -s heen a very big ,t ield.
Them mines have not paid as * et.
And if we'd ha' voted to keep them:
Dost remember, lass, three years ago?
Why, we'd had to 'a kept 'eiu a lifetime
Kor co .I's g* ing darnation slow.
I've heen reading   11 the piper*
Thai my .wages w 11 allow;
And sir, they're bringing for ballast coal
Fiom all or'e, wi'out any toll.
And I blame some o' me chums for ki king
When I read the world all o.'e
T'cther places can onl, give market prices
And not a darn cent more.
I tell you, Nan* e, old darling,
The boys are about nearly all out
When they run down maister Hohins.
He knows what he's about;
And he's only a working man, old girl,
Although he's better off;
I'd rather have my job to-day
Ttian his, and be a toff.
His hisses tell him, just like us
To follow certain rules;
Hia position we ought lo surely see,
Or else we're naught but mules.
He's got to folow instructions;
If he does It net, why, he's (-red,
And 1 h**ar his fighting r.l*e company
Is nearly getting him fired
Well, Nance, I'm getting sleepy now;
My pipe's out, S*** are you;
Hut r, member two bides mean questions
And to the truth I'll ever he true,
For you're like a mirror of tr.ih, old girl,
And I'm right when I look through you.

How Thoy Do it in Tacoma.
Says     an   exchange:     Tlie    hordes     of
tramps      who     now     ulllicl     the     land
liko   the   locusts   of  Egypt   aro   seriously
puzzling       municipal     authorities     everywhere.    The  j'ail   has   no   terrors   for the
tramp--in   fact,   hti   rather   prefers   it, in
winter, io the box car; in the, jail he is kept
warm, is fed and has  nothing   to   do.    We
commend to these puzzled municipal oflicers
the plan adopted by the   authorities of Tacoma.    In that ci'y there has been  built in
the jail a species   of   coll   which   might be
called the   "Tacoma   torture   chamber   for
tramps."    It is about   eight   feet   high and
three feet square.    Around the ceiling, the
walls and the floor there runs a perforated
j one-inch pipe.    The tramp is  mado  to dis-
I robe, given soap and a brash and induced to
| enter the torture chamber.    Then tho wi.'or
lis turned on full head.    Tho  awful shrieks
I and yells which   emerge   from  the   torture
Limber are said   to   strike   torror   to the
Isoul of the stoutest tramp.      Wheu the vic-
fttol has been released he   strikes  out   from
I Tacoma, bearing his tale  of  horror   to  -outnumbered tramps.    The result   has  been  a
���marked falling off of  tramp  travel  in  that
[locality.    The people of  Tacoma  havo  dis-
Ijovered how to get rid of  the  tramp,   they

An interesting discussion took place last

at the Y.M.C.A. rooms, on "Resolved that

was in the chair. Messrs. T. W._ Haslam,

the affirmative side of the question and
Messrs. E. XV. Freure, A. Anderson and H.
Stewart supporters of the negative side. At
the close of the discussion Captain Dempster
summed up the debate and gave it as his
opinion that though both sides had ably
handled the subject, the negatives had the
best of the argument. Next Thursday at
the meet ing of the Debating Club a paper
on the Chinese question will be read by Mr.
Keith, M.P.P., and afterwards discussed by

The Enoch Talbot.
Editor Tslsokau:
Sir,���In last night's issue of the Free Press
an account was given relating to the bark
Enoch Talbot, now lying at Departure bay
for coal. The item BtatCB that the men
were paid off because the vessel was uneea-
worthy; then it goes on to say that the
captain denies the unseaworthiness of his
vessel, and that he (the captaiu) paid off the
men that shipped at Honolulu for Royal
Roads. Now, in justice to the crew and to
all concerned, I consider it my duty to say
that the men that were paid off and those
that remain on board signed in San Francisco for a voyage to Departure bay, then
to Honolulu and return; therefore the men
were entitled to their wages. I contradict
the statement of Captain Rico when he
says that hiB vessel ie seaworthy. It is very
fresh in my memory when the Euoch Talbot
was last here, and the repairs that she
underwent while here; also that after the
vessel was loaded and while being towed to
sea she sprang a leak, therefore compelling
her to put into Port Angeles for
further repairs; eventually the vessel Bailed,
and has arrived safely back. But will she
make another safe voyage *;���Ihat is a ques-
lion that needs looking into. If the captain tirely NeW btOCK DOUgDX
denies the statement that his vessel is un-
seaworthy, it is generally believed to be
true, but the poor friendless sailors that
have to pump the water out of the ship
night and day for dear lite and a paltry
eighty-five cents a day; if they make a
statement, of course their'a is not true, But,
Mr. Editor, if any one is intereB'.ed enough
to find out the truth of these statements, let
them take a trip on hoard the Enoch Talbot
I promise those that go plenty of revelations
in the shape of a sailor's coffin, such as the
rudder post, the main yard, topsail yards,
etc., etc., let theBe be as they may. The
above sailors are still in town and would be
glad to see anyone interested in their behalf.
1 am always to be found at the seamens' office on Wharf street, and if Captain Rice
should ever want a crew of practical seamen
I shall always be only too willing to oblige
him with one nt reasonable rates (whether
the Enoch Talbot is seaworthy or not.)

"The man of ��cience visited a dealer
he well knew; a little parchment-faced
old man who kept ;i dingy shop, where
apthing waa ever sold, within the shadow nf the towers of Notre Dame.
���'The little parchment-faced old man
had just the very thing that monsieur
wanted���a singularly fine and well proportioned 'study.' It should be sent
round and set up in monsieur's laboratory that very afternoon.
"The dealer was as good as his word.
When monsieur entered his laboratory
that evening the thing was in its place.
"Monsieur seated himself in his high-
backed chair and tried to collect his
thoughts. But monsieur's thought*
were unruly and inclined to wander, and
to wander always in one direction.
"Monsieur opened a large volume and
commenced to read. He read of a man
who had wronged another and lied from
him, the other man following. Finding
hiin.self reading this he closed the book
angrily and went and stood by the window and looked out. He saw before
him the sun pierced nave of a great cathedral, and on the stones lay a dead man
wi'h a mocking smile upon his face.
"Cursing himself for a fool, he turned
away with a laugh. But his laugh was
short-lived, for it seemed to him that
something else in the room was laughing
also. Struck suddenly still, with his
feet glued to the ground, he stood listening for awhile; then sought with starting eyes the corner from where the sound
had seemed to coma. But the white
thing standing there was only grinning.
"Monsieur wiped the damp sweat
from his head and hands, and stole out.
"For a couple of days he did not enter
the room again. On the third, telling
himself that his fears were those of an
hysterical girl, he opened the door and
went in. To shame himself he took liis
lamp in his hand, and, crossing over to
the far corner where the skeleton stood,
examined it. A set of bones bought for
a hundred francs. Was he a child to be
scared by such a bogy!
"He held his lamp up in front of the
thing's grinning head. The flame of th*
lamp flickered as though a faint breath
had passed over it.
"The man explained this to himself by
saying that the walls of the house were
old and cracked, and that the wind
might creep in anywhere. He repeated
this explanation to himself as he recross-
ed the room, walking backward with his
eyes fixed on the thing. When he reached
his desk he sat down and gripped the
arms of his chair till his fingers turned
white.
"He tried to work, but the empty
sockets in that grinning head seemed to
be drawing him towards them. He rose
and battled with his inclination to fly
screaming from tlie room. Glancing
fearfully about him, his eye fell upon
the high screen, standing beforo the
door. He dragged it forward and placed
it betweon himself and the thing, so
that he could not see it���nor it see him.
Then he sat down again to his work.
For awhile lie forced hims"If to look at
the book in front of him, but at last, unable to control himself any longer, he
suffered his eyes to follow their own
bent.
"It m��y hare been a hallucination.
He may nave accidentally placed tha
screen so as to favor such an illusion.
But what he saw was a bony hand coming round the screen, and with a cry be
fell to the floor in a swoon.
"The people of the house came run-
ring in, and lifting him up carried him
out and laid him up.in his bed. As soon
as he recovered his first question waa
where had they found the tiling���where
was it when they entered the room?
And when they told him they had seen
it standing where it always stood, and
had gone down into the room to look
again because of his frenzied entreaties,
and returned trying to hide their smiles,
he listened to their talk about o\..; * ...-���
��ud the necessity for change am- rest
and said they might do with him as they
���would.
"So, for ninuj   lunula.?  the la.^	
doors remained locked TIiol th..r.
came a chill autumn evening when tin,
man of science opened it again and
closed if behind him.
"He lighted a lamp ��uo k<"'��<:",c tti%
instruments and books around him ami
mt down before them in his high-backed
chair. And the old terror returned to
him.
But this time he mmui tc Ooiiqnen
himself. His nerves were stronger now
and his brain clearer; he would light iiis
nnreasoning fear. He crossed to the
door and locked himself in aid Hung the
key to tlie other end of the room, where
it fell among jars and bottles with an
���ohoing clatter.
"Later on. his old housekeeper, goln��
her final round, tapped at his door and
wished him good night, as was her custom. She received no resp.ilHO at first,
and, growiny; nervous, tuppo i louder and
���alleil again ; and at iongtii in answering
'good night' came buck to her.
"She thought litrtlo abojt it at lb-*
time, but afterwards she remember i
that the vn'ce that had replied to l.* ;
had been strangely grating and meeh������ i-
ical. Trying to describe it, she liken.-.1
it to such a voice as she would imagine
coming from a statue.
"Next morning his door remained still
locked. It was nounu.ui u tiling for hi 1
to work all night nnd far into the ni C
day, so no one thought to be surprise I.
When, however, evening c me and yes
he did not appear, his servants gathere 1
outside the room aud whispered, ru-
membering what had happened once
before.
"They listened, but could hear no
���ound. They shook the door and calle i
to him, then boat with their fists npon
the wooden panels. But still no sound
came from the room.
"Becoming alarmed they decided to
burst open the door, and after many
blows it gave way and flew back ami
they crowded in.
"He sat bolt upright in his high-back
chair. They thought at. first that he ha I
died in his sleep. But when they drew
nearer and tlie light fell upon him tliey
saw the livid marks of bony fingers
round his throat, and in the eyes there
was a terror such as is not often seen in
the human eyes."
Brown was the first to break the si
lance that followed. He asked me if I
had any brandy on lxwtl. Ho said he
felt he should like a nip of brandy before
going to bed.    That is one of the chief
charms of Jepbson's stories; they always
make you feel you want a little brandy.

STEAMBOATING ON  THE OHIO.
It Waa at the li< light of Its Prosperity
Haifa Ceuturj Ago.
It was from 1840 to 1853 that steam-
boating was at its height. Fortunes
were mado in those years by men who
owned and ran boats. There were lots
of steamers on the river then. The embryo industries of that period depended
on the river entirely, fyr railroads had
ouly been proposed���mot built. About
100 steamboats were built at Pittsburg
annually to run on the Ohio and Mississippi rivers. This city was noted for
the trim crafts it placed on the water, as
some of the biggest and best running
steamers were built at the headwaters of
the Ohio.
The boats of the early steamboating
days were all side wheelers. It was not
until late that the advent of the stern
wheel boats occurred, and when it djal
they were not looked upon with favor
by the denizens of the side wheel crafts.
The rivermen regarded them as an inferior kind of boat, on whose decks it
was beneath the dignity of a first class
steaniboatman to tread.
Tho packets were of good size and
stoutly built. They were not supplied
with swinging stages and steam capstans, and their engines were of sure but
not so graceful movement as engines
now, and electric lights for steamboats
were not even dreamed of. But they
served their purpose in making big money for their owners.
There was but one organised packet
company running boats down the river
from Pittsburg. It was the old Pittsburg
and Cincinnati Packet line, and it owned
about 25 steamboats, some of which left
the Pittsburg wharf daily. Among them
were the Buckeye State, the Hibernia,
Pittsburg, Crystal Palace and Pennsylvania. These boats were all stoutly
built and especially adapted for fast
running. The laws relating to racing
were not so stringent then as now, and
exciting contests of speed on the river
occurred daily.
One of the swiftest of the packets was
the Pennsylvania. She was the largest
of tho Cincinnati boats and made some
splendid records on the Ohio. She was
210 feet long and 31 feet beam. Another
fast steamer was the Alleghany. She was
not so large as the Pennsylvania, but
was almost as speed}'. Some of these old
Cincinnati Packet line boats wtere sunk,
a few burned, ami the others wore out in
the river service.
Bi sides tho Cincinnati company's packets t here were several steamers, most of
theai owned by Pittsburgers, which ran
down the river and which bad uo regular trades, but made trips whenover and
wherever there was occasion for their
ii I'vices. They were chiefly to St. Louis
uud New Orleans, the trip to the last
named point being completed in about
20 days. There wero a few boats running up the Monongahela and Alleghany
rivers. Brownsville was as far up as
the slaclrwater improvements extended
on the Monongahela, and franklin was
the head of navigation on the Alleghany.
���Pittsburg Post.
A Dnrdistlili Legend of u Bear.
Two women, a mother and her little
daughter, wero one night Watching their
field of Indian corn���"inakni"���against
the inroads of the bears. The mother
had to g'o to her house to prepare the
food and ordered her daughter to light a
lire outside. While she was doing this
a bear came and took her away. He carried her to his deu and daily brought her
to eat and drink. He rolled a big stone
in front of tlio den whenever he went
away on his tours, which the girl was
not strong enough to move.
When sho became old enough to do
this, he used daily to lick her feet, by
which they became swollen and gradually dwir,d!"d down to mere misshapen
stumps. The girl eventually died, uud
the poor bear, after vain eli'orts to rest ore her to life, roamed disconsolately
about tin* fields.���Dr. Leitner in Asiatic
Quarterly,
Bats Are Great Traveler*.
Eats do not, as one would suppose, remain on the ship, but get off at various
ports, and after remaining a while ship
on some other vessel for another voyage.
The water rats or wharf rats are great
travelers and make frequent voyages
around the lakes and even around
the world���the latter as I discovered
while engaged in West India service.
There are here now rats from almost
every part of the globe. Why, I saw
four colossal Jamaica rats, with their
white bellies, skipping about in the moonlight a few weeks ago, and only yesterday I killed two Indian male rats not
200 feet from where we were standing.
Eats are great climbers when they
find it necessary to bo so. Upon one of
my voyages not long ago wo had a long
spell of warm weather, and there was
no water in tho hold which the small
army of rats on board could get at. O:
night we put some water up at the cross
trees and waited for tho result, Well,
the rats just swarmed up the ratlines
and went for the water. We killed as
many of thum as we could as they came
down, and some of them jumped overboard and were drowned. But we could
not kill them all, and a few mado the
entire voyage with us.���Interview in

DID YOU REMEMBER
ALL YOUR FRIENDS ON 3ZMAS ?
If there's someone you forgot why not make it good now, by sending them a New Year's Gift.  No matter how small
the article, it is appreciated at this season, and keeps alive memories of Auld Lang Syne.
We have still a number of suitable presents, any of which we will now dispose of at about half price.
Don't forget that we  carry an enormous range of "Bretagne" Lacing Gloves in all colors.   They are acknowledged
to be the best Wearing Glove in the market, and the price is very reasonable.

Many people interested iu skating have
been wondering why the proposed rink to
be constructed at the back of Pimbury's
store has not bi en made, us the present cold
weather would s"nn supply plenty of ice.
It is understood that the council has given
permission for the dam to be constructed,
and if made the rink would soon have
plenty of people taking advantage of it.
A number of boys were sliding and skating on the ice al the back of the Halfway
House jesterday morning. A gentleman
who was also there went to see if it was safe
and sacrificed himself lor the public benefit
by going in as the ice was not then strong
enough to support adults. To day it is expected that a number of people from town
will take advantage of the frost aud enjoy
skating there.
It is reported that a Northwest Association football league is shortly to be formed,
to include Oregon, Washington aud British

present, with the exception of two or three
indnidual clubs, football in the territory in
question is in a sadly disorganized state.
