San   Francisco,   April 26.���When Bret
Harte made the immortal   Truthful   James
"Tell iu simple   language   what   he   knew
about the row that  broke up society   upon
the St anisic*" he certainly never dreamed
that thin very name Boeiety would be recon
structed   many   years    later,   not   on   the
"Stanislow," io be   sure,   *but   "down   th*
bay" in San   Francisco.     "The   subsequent
proceedings," which Abner Dean of   Angels
said at the time "interested him no more,'1
would have great interest for him now, had
not "that chunk of red sandstone" done its
deadly work by making poor Abner a oandi
date for an early grave.
In Golden Gate Park, near the north drive
i mi of the Midwinter Fair grounds, is located Bret Harte's "Truthful James" and
Abner Dean's old original "Forty-nine
Mining Camp," and "Stanislow Society" is
there in full blast every day and night. It
is a 1)* autiful piece of ground, seen from a
Californian's point of view, and most inter
esting to every one from abroad.
The ingenuity displayed by the promoters
and managers of this extremely interesting
California Forty-nine Mining Camp his
aroused the udmiralion of the whole newspaper and sho* world, not only in America
but also in Europe. The leading dailies,
weeklies aud monthly magazines in every
country have fnr months past punished extensive aud profusely illus* rated accounts of
the quaint, unique aud realistic representations of early life in the mines to be found
in the Midwinter Fair's Fony-nine Mining
Gimp. Harper's Weekly, Frank Leslie's, the
New York Sim, the New York Herald, the
Chicago Recerd, the Chioago Herald and
papers of Cincinnati,New Orleans,St. Louis,
KansisCity, Omaha, Philadelphia and of
nearly every oihcr Eastern city of note have
printed columns after columns about the
Fort j -nine Mining Camp, and the English,
French and German exchanges, in mentioning the Midwinter Fair, never fail to speak
of this special feature. To a Californian,this
universal approval ef a novel enterprise has
more than a passing significance. It shows
the great and mighty interest the people
abroad take in the land of gold, immortalized by Mark Twain, Bret Harte, Joaquin
Miller and many others. But aside from
the realism���for the camp is an exact reproduction of a mushroom mining village of '49
��� the men who planned this exhibition of
pioneer days have displayed singular forethought in combining with it another, and
to the visitor from abi'oad, certainly equally
pleasing and interesting feature.
V\ hen the site of the Forty-nine Camp
was selected, some time iu December, 1893,
the gentlemen who had charge of its con-
si ruction concluded that an exhibition of
California's flora and fauua would be the
proper thing to show to the eastern and
foreign visitors. They proceeded to plant
the lit ns anil flowers indigenous to California climate in various plats and nooks
around and iu front of the camp. Tne
result to-day is most gratifying to those
who conceived the idea, for the wealth of
native flowers which lend additional thaims
to the Forty-nine Mining Camp are a source
of never ending admiration from the delighted visitors.
There is another distinctly oh iraeteristic
feature about the camp not generally known.
Every bit of material used, every man or
woman employed or every horse, mule or
jackass ever seen in the camp, now or during
its construction, is, or was, strictly and distinctly Calfornian. Native talent only was,
and is, employed in this reproduction of
early days. Even the beans one eats are
grown ou Califoruia stalks, and the beefsteaks are from California steers. The fandango girls are home products and the big
grizzly bear down in the pit at the foot of
Mount Shasta is the only Califoruia wild
grizzly ever captured. He was trapped in the
mountains of Ventura county three years
ago, and everybody v. ho thiuks that he is
nut a native ia welco ne to go down into the
pit and tell him so to his face.
The Executive Committee of the Midwinter Fair having realized from the be-
ginniug thnt the Forty-nine Mining Camp
is one of the greatest and most appropriate attractions of the Exposition, have made
it over since the opening of the Fair a big
feature. Assisted by tho home and foreign
press the camp has enjoyed the patronage
aud universal approval it deserves.
BY WIRE FROM SAN FRANCISCO.
Current News from the City hy the Golden
Gate.
San Francisco, April 26.���Another very
interesting feature was added to the already
wonderful Russian section in the Manufacturers and Liberal Arts building at tbe exposition yesterday. It consists of very
ancient rugs and tapestries, all iu a perfect
state of preservation. In one of the show
eases in this new part of the displny \w h
genuine velvet anil go il i*i*.vn ti.ru l.y one
of the histor.cil de Medici iamilj ui Italy,
nothing but the jewels having been removed
from it since it Wat used, hundreds of years
ago.
The committe on awards is now holding
daily sessions. Nearly all of the juries have
been appointed, and the work of judging the
exhibits will begin almost immediately.
Tomorrow the charge for admission to
the fair will be 25 cents., and it is expen'ed
that the special attractious offered by "Odd
Fellows' day," coupled with the half rate,
will bring out a crowd equal to that on St.
Patrick's day, or on other special days.
The dry weather throughout the state
was in a measure relieved to-day by welcome showers of rain, principally in the
Northern and middle Central sections. The
indications are favorable for . further precipitation, and reports from all points show
that the farmers are jubilant over the much
needed visitation.
Mark Walser, district attorney of Fresno,
who was in the city yesterday in connection
with the Wootton mystery, stated in an interview that he is satisfied Saunders not
only murdered Wootton to get possession
of his property, but has buried his body in
a secret place. Thomas Woottou, brother
of the murdered man and the only heir, who
is in England, has engaged Messrs. Cormack
and Donahu to act as his attorneys in the
matter, and wishes the fullest investigation,

Auotion Sale and Angelus.
Montreal, April 26.���The other day
Mr. T. J. Potter conducted an old fashioned
sale at the door of Pointe Claire church.
The Ducheoneau Hotel waa the property
Bold, and the auctioneer waa the ouly English-speaking person in the crowd that stood
bout the place of Bale. The property was
sold for $5,200 to Mr. Leon Charlebois, for
Madame Thomas Duchesueau. The Bale
was by the authority of the law; and was
conducted in both languages, and had to
commence at eleven o'clock, aud the final
bid and adjudication could not legally be
made until the Angelus bell ceased at midday. When the last note of the Angelus
died away, the next ring was tbe tones of
the auctioneer's voice, which declared the
sale closed.
Son of a'Baronet Footpad.
Windsor, April 26.���Burton B. Wake,
alias C. H. Bennett, the young Englishman
who waylaid and robbed Miss Jenuie Beek-
with in Detroit aud Miss Gerard iu Windsor,
as well as other parties iu the United States
and Canada was brought up before Police
Magistrate Burtlet for sentence. He told
the police where he had some of the wafi lies
aud other things wh.ch he had stoicu from
the Exchange hotel in Montreal, and an
effort will lie made to recover them. The
prisoner was sentenced by Magistrate Bartlet to 23 mouths iu the Central Prison. The
judge sai I lie would make the sentenco light
as Wake belonged to a very respectable
family and drink had been the cause of his
disgrace. Wake's father is a baronet, residing in London, England.
Heathen  Chinese in 'Frisco.
San Francisco, April 26.���As many predicted, the Chinese took advantage of the
Midwinter Fair concession to bring in a
number of their countrymen intent on making a home in the United States. It was
represented that after the fair was over they
would return to the Flowery Kingdom.
That this assurance was only a misrepresentation is evident from certain facts now in
possession of the Federal officials. It is lie-
liuvcdth.it many oi ih-i "exhibitors" have
already beeu scattered throughout the country, and that others were prepared to make
prolonged stays in the laud of pluuly. This
is evident from the fact that live of them
boldly atteniptotl to take advauiage of the
registration act. There are but seven more
days available for registration, and the estimate of those unregistered in Sau Francisco
rauges from 3,000 to 6,000.
Speed Scoouis From Kcllcy's Army.
Atlantic, la., April 26.���Kelley'a Industrials i cached Atlantic at 6 o'clock last
night, with Colonel Speed aud his followers
in the ranks. The day had been an eventful one, Speed having been deposed and a
separation of the Sacramento and San Franoisco divisions having been made during the
march, with narrowly averted war. Speed
refused to obey orders issued by Kelley and
was promptly court-martialed and reduced
to the ranks. The Sacramento divisiou at
once declared it would desert Kelley and
follow Speed, and the camp was soon in a
scene of wild disorder. About 300 declared
for Speed, and the men argued their differences w i th clubs and stones. A fight was a verted
however, by Kelley's ooolness. Before they
reached Atlantic the Sacramento division
made Speed general, and to-night declared
their intention to follow no banner but his.
They openly denounoe Kelley as having applied to his own use the army's funds, and
say they will obey his orders uo lunger.
Speed h <s accepted the leadership, and says
he will maroh to Washington City with
Kelley, but not under him. Thenceforth,
Bays Speed, there will be two arniieB, absolutely distinct. Kelley hopes for a reconciliation. He says he can and will aooount
for funds reoeived. The two armies will remain in Atlantio until Thursday.
FATTEROSSI'S   SCHEME.
An Italian Widow's Novel Expedient to
Find the Best Man.
Derby, Conn., April 26.���Mra. Marie
Annial Fatterossi was married to Matteo
Margauella at St. Mary's Catholic church
on Sunday last by Rev. Thomas J. Finn.
This wedding was the result of a novel contest for a wile between four men. Michael
Fattrossi died in Italy several months ago,
leaving his widow, Marie Fattrossi, a comfortable fortune. Immediately after Fat-
trossi's death the Knights of Maccabees, an
endowment order to which he belonged,paid
the widow $3,000 in gold as insurance upon
his life.
She was at once beseiged with suitors.
Pasquale Madoutti was the firat of * hem,
but he was put off until tho widow could
partially recover Irom her grief. A month
passed before Antonio Mulachi sought to
solace her, but he, too, was bidden to wait
awhile. Then came Francis Farlotti, who
wanted to be married at once, but he, too,
was told to wait
By.this time it was xpring, and with the
bright warm days of March came Matteo
Marguella from sunny Italy with pleasant
stories of Italian home life and the pathetio
tale ot how Fattrossi died and how be was
taken care of by Marguela. He brought a
little golden ear-ring that Fattrossi always
wore. Mrs. Fattrnssi's grief broke out
afreash, but Marguella did not wait for it to
spend itself. He struck while the heart lay
bare before him and offered to share her lot,
including the $3,000 insurance on her late
husband's life. He was put off yet a little
while also. As the March days grew more
beautiful the four suitors pressed their suits.
The widow could not decide between,
them. Finally she hit upon a happy expedient. Behind her little house was a garden
where she determined to have a trial. She
Bent word to the suitors to come on a certain day. When they came she took them
into the garden and allotted each a portion
of ground which he was to spade up, rake
and prepare for seed. The one doing the
beat work was to receive her hand. The
rivals accepted the task. All day long they
labored aud were ready for  planting.
After critical examination Mrs. Fattrossi
decided that the bo.it work had been doue
by Marguella, a they are enjoying the
$3,000 insurance and he is happy, but he is
always happiest when Bitting on the back
steps of his wife's house, looking at his
garden which his rivals helped to spade.
COXEY'S ARMY.
They Try to  Capture  a Train  at Portland, But Get Left.
Portland, Ore., April 26.���The Northern
Pacific freight left Portland twenty minutes
ahead of time last night, otherwise Coxey's
army would have taken possession. The
company had been warned, as also were the
police. Forty of the latter were at the
depot wiie-r the men marched there at nin-.
It was then stated that they would capture
the four o'clock train on Thursday morning, and every precaution was taken to
guard it, but at two o'cloc'n this morning
they suddenly left on foot, following the
Union Pacific track. They expected to
camp a short distance from the city and
there await the arrival of the train. If a
breach of the peace occurs trouble will follow, for there is uo sentimentality about
the Portland authorities.
Washington, April 26.���The Department
of Justice has directed the United States
marshal at Bismarck, N. D., to txecu'.e any
injunction or process for the prole*"ion of
the Northern Pacific property from the
Coxeyites. He is further instructed to call
on the President, for troops if necessary.
The district, commissioners took no action
ou the petition Coxeyite sympathizers are
a-king that the Commouwealers be allowed
to hold street, meetings.
That North Gabriola Meeting.
A correspondent writes to The Telegram:
"It turns out that the Opposition meeting
held at North Gabriola, about which there
was Buch a "hoorar" in the Free Press, was
attended by exactly four settlers." He sarcastically adds, "No wonder there was enthusiasm!" From enquiries made it is found
that the foregoing is substantially correct
and the report referred to is about on a par
with that paper's account of the Opposition
meeting at Englishman's river, which in its
latest issue, it tries to whitewash by
impungnitg the veracity of The
TELEGRAM'S report of the Government gathering at Englishman's river
on Tuesday last. The easiest reply to
such traduoera is to refer them io Messrs.
W. H. Lees, U. DicUuaon,Heuiy Pillar and
Mr. Knight, all highly respected residents
and senlers in that district, as to whether
Tue I'eleiira.m's leportuf that meeting
was not a veracious one. The representative of liiis paper counted over 75 present at
the beginning nf the meeting; and while
Xlr. Davie was speikinj, the audience was
furthor augmented to very nearly if uot
quite, one hundred. Oue of the leading
planks, in the Opposition platform is multigated mendacity, but that party will find at
the polls that it is a pernicious policy to
pursue.

STARTING A BALKY HORSE.
WSm Ha.rif.d Put Eli Finger In the A_-
���sal's Ear With Immediate Effect.
A -colored man had just delivered a
trunk from a one horse wagon. When he
eame out nf the house and climbed to his
sent he bade the horse shake himself. The
animal apparently did not understand
what was said, for his only movement was
to place his feet more firmly on the pavement aud give his tail a slight tremor.
The driver repeated tbe command, at the
same time adding emphasis to bis words
by a quick Btroke of the whip. It was to
no purpose, the horse had balked. The
blows fell thick and fast ou the beast's
back, bat the horse had apparently
come to stay. The man climbed
down from his seat and began
work on the other snd of the obstinate
creature by pulling *at the bridle and
speaking heavily loaded sentences into the
auricular receptacles of the horse. The only
effect noticed was that the horse pressed
its feet so closely to the cobble Btones
that it almost crushed its shoes. Many
were the modes of moving his horseship
advanced by the bystanders. At lust some
one suggested that a fire built on the pavement beneath the animal would be calculated to make him move. It was to be tried
as a last resort A bunch ot shavings and
some small sticks were plaoed under the
horse, and the driver was just going to
apply a match to the pile that wns intended
to melt the animal into action when a
stranger who had been noticed joining the
crowd a few minutes before stepped,up.
The newonmer's browned face and hands,
stout boots and broad hat suggested that
he had come from the rural districts.
"Hold on there," he said to the driver as
he stepped out into the street, "thut ain't
the wuy. You climb back into yer wagiu
an' I'll start the creatcher." The negro did
so. "I ken start im," said the man as he
stepped to the horse's head and began patting him ou the neck. Then, without further words, he thrust his finger ill the animal's ear and pulled gently. The horse
shook its head once or twice in a vain attempt to get away and then started to move
off. As it trotted away around the corner
the farmer was heard to exclaim: "Be-
gosh, that moves 'em every time."
Ages of European Rulers.
The Almanach de Gotha for 1894 has
buried in its numerous finely printed pages
some interesting facts as to the ag��B of
European sovereigns. The oldest of all is
the Pope, who is in his 84th year. Next
comes the Grand Duke of little Luxemburg, who is 76. The Kinb- cf Denmark
and the Grand Duke of Saxe-Weimar are
75; Queen Victoria n d the Grand Duke
-of Mecklenburg Strelitz, 74. There lire
six other sovereigns who are older than
70; eleven who are between 60 and 70,
and five who are between 50 and 60.
Eleven are between 40 and 50, two between 30 and 40. uud two more between
20 and 30. The youngest three sovereigns
are King Alexander *f Servia, 17; Queen
Wilhelmina of the Netherlands, 13, and
King Alfonso XIII. of Spain, 7f Queen
Victoria bus had the longest reign���fifty-
six and one half years. Emperor Franz
Josef has reigned forty-five years; the
Grand Duke of Baden forty one years; the
Grand Duke of O.deuburg, of Sax.* Wel-
lnnr-Eisenuch, and of Saxe-Altenbnrg,
forty years each. Fourteen of the sovereigns of Euiope have reigned fewer than
ten years. During 1893 three new sovereigns ascended the throne. They are
Prince George of Schaumburg-Lippe,
Prince Frederick of Waldeck and Duke
Alfred of Coburg, better knowu aa the
Duke of Edinburgh.
Destruction of Birds.
The many friends of the birds, who
have so often and bo energetically protested
against their use for the adornment of
women's hats, will be interested in the fate
of the mulin, one of the most beautiful of
the feathered inhabitants of the Sandwich
Islands. These birds are now extinct, and
Professor Newton, of Cambridge, England, estimates that not above half-a
dozen stuffed specimens of the species exist iu tbe world.
They were clothed with magnificent yellow feathers; and for the sake of these
which were employed in making robes for
the native chiefs of the islands, the birds
were relentlessly slaughtered. When the
supply became exhausted recourse was had
to another yellow feathered bird of the
islands, much inferior in beauty, however, and the name Oo, formerly borne
by the ni'iho, was transferred to this new
victim of savage vanity.
It can hardly be a comforting reflection
for those who aid or encourage the slaughter of birds for the adornment of human
headgear, that they are simply imitating a
thoughtless custom of the uncivilized natives of a Pucific island.
Lime  Water..
The uses of so homely an article as lime
about the household are almost innumerable. One sees the bodman on a new building keep his drinking water in u pail coated
wit'i lime, nnd one thinks it is a pour re-
eeptn.'le for the universal beverage. Yet it
Wonld not be so good or so pure serve 1 in
a silver ice pitcher. A tnblespooiifril of
lime water in a glass "f milk is n remedy
for summer cumplnint. It corrects acidity of the stiiinneli. It prevents the turning of milk or cream, und a cup ul added
to bread sponge will keep it from souring. Allowed to evaporate from a vessel
on the stove, it will alleviate the distresses
due to lung fever croup or diphtheria.
It will sweeten and purify bottles, jugs,
���tc
Lime Itself, aa every one knows, is invaluable as a purifier and disinfectant.
Sprinkled in cellars, or closets, where
there is a slight dampness, it will not only
serve as a purifier, but will prevent the
invasion of noxious animals. It is one of
the notable instances of the economy and
the bounty of Nature that this article so
common and cheap is serviceable in so
many instances.
Hli Desperate  Resolve.
"Yon���yon will not do anything rash,
Mr. Haralong, will you?" exclaimed the
yonng woman, in a trembling voice.
The rejected lover, pale but resolute, lose
slowly to his feet.
"Henrietta Plunkettl" he answered,
through his set teeth, "1 will! Just as
surely as yon stand there, proud, heartless beauty that you are, I shall be in the
South Sea islands six months from now,
the happy husband of fourteen wives I"���

Many women drift into odd employments through eircuinstunci'H, but there is
no reason why such should not be deliberately sought. A firm of clothiers who
have branch establishments iu several cities have introduced women as saleswomen
In the boys' department, and the Innovation meets with the approval of all mothers who have grown weary of ' being regarded with a pitying smile whenever
they protested mildly that clothes did uot
fit.
I am acquainted with two women who
carry on the business of a taxidermist
successfully, and another who is successful in mounting specimens for the microscope. Some of the finest work in thu natural history museum ut South Kensington
Was dune by a woman.
A colorist who had learned to tint photographs well, but who could not make a
living by it, sought and obtained employment at coloring Illustrations for n medical book. This one order kept her busy
for a long time aud paid her well.
A teacher of languages who was an nd-
mirnlile translator turned aside from publishers of novels ami succeeded in obtaining work from professional meu who wished to keep up with foreign notes on scientific subjects, but could uot take lime to
translate for themselves. She was for several years connected with the stall of one
of our colleges, though her name did not
appear, as she was engaged by the professors themselves.
A similar instance of enterprise is that
of two translators, oue of whom selects
the French and German publications for
the book counter of a large dry goods
house, and the other, who does similar
reading aud sifting for a public library.
Each of these ladies earns *?1,200 a year,

FRIDAY, APRIL 27, 1894.
MR. J. C.  BROWN'S   RETIREMENT.
The retirement of Mr. J. C. Brown of
New Westminster from politics is wonderfully exercising the so-called Independent
party in this Proviuce. Mr. Brown, who is
a County Cork man, but was educated at
Dr. Bryce's Academy in Belfast, and afterwards at Queen's College there, was one of
the bright and shining lights of the Independent branch of the Opposition���in faot
carried the brains of the party under his
hat, when he aesumed that necessary article
of apparel. He is therefore greatly mourned
by his coll agues, who are painfully conscious that the party has no brains to
spare, and that if they got ou but poorly
with Mr. Brown's help, they will get on
still worse without it. But about a year
ago an order was issued by the -authorities
at Ottawa, that civil servants who had a
taste for politics, piob.i' ly because nature
had endowed them as she endowed Mr.
Brown, and iud ed as she endows
most Irishmen, with the gift of the
gab, must choose betweeu politics and the
pleasure of orating without limit on current
subjects (which ii must be confessed most of
these loquacious gentlemen understand but
very imperfectly) aud the business for which
they are employed and paid by the Government. Mr. Brown was a conspicuous offender against the rule that postmasters ure
employed to look after tbe mails, not to
spend several months every year at the
Provincial capital enlightening the natives
about the alleged shortcomings of the Provincial Government of the day, and severa'
months more in stumping the Province at
large on a similar mission; so at last the
authorities found it necessary to give him
formal notioe that he must either give his
undivided attention to the duties of his
post office, for discharging which he was
handsomely paid by Government, or else
resign his appointment. With this very
reasonable demand, Mr. Brown, who knows
as well as anybody on which side his bread
is buttered, has complied, aud has accordingly intimated to his friends that lie will
not be a candidate for New Westminster at
the forthcoming Provincial election.
Most people would imagine ou hearing of
this that it was quite in the natural course
of things that the business of a postmaster
was to look after the mails; not to spend his
time orating about politics and abusing the
Government, either Provincial or Federal,
and that the Postmaster-General in serving
notice on Mr. Brown that he must comply
with the rule in this regard, the same as
other postmasters, only did his duty, and
what was in fact to be expected. But this
is not the sensible view of the matter taken
by the exponents in the press of the Iude-
mendent party, in fact of the Opposition at
large. These scribes pretend to discover in the notice served on
Mr. Brown the result of a deep plot and
much intrigue on the part of Hon. Mr.
Davie, Premier of this Province, whom they
represent, as j-salous of Mr. Browu's great
abilities as a debater, aud anxious to have
him driven from political life iu the Province, and banished from the Provinoial
Assembly. Mr. Cottoh, who has always
aspired to be a leader of the Independents,
and who long ago modestly appointed himself to that position, without in the least
consulting his colleagues on the subject, has
one of bis long and verbose editorials ou the
subject in the News-Advertiser of Tuesday
last, in which he impudently affirms that
Mr. Davie has been exerting all his influence
to drive Mr. Brown out of the Legislature.
The motive assigned for this alleged action
on the part of the Premier is that "knowing
his iuferiority in debate, and dreading those
sharp thrusts that bo often covered the
leader of the House with ridicule ,and con-
fusion, it mattered little to Mr. Davie what
method of ending the annoyance must be
adopted, so long as it attained the desired
end." It is hardly necessary to say that all
thiB is purely gratuitous assertion, for which
neither Mr. Cotton nor any one else has
even a tittle of proof. It is, in fact, in line
with the course pursued of late by the Opposition, and especially by the managing
editor of the News-Advertiser, that is to say,
the statement is a downright falsehood made
ont of whole cloth by a party which for
several months has had much experience in
the manufacture of similar lies. Mr. Cotton oannot even claim the praise that the
lie was original with him.    The   entire Op
position press, as well aa the News-Advertiser, ia busy circulating it. We cannot aay
who was the original author of it, nor does
it matter much. But if any one of the pack
oan prove the statement let him produce his
evidence. In default of this they muat all
be content to be branded together as vulgar
malicious liara and slanderers. Mr. Davie,
we are convinced, haa done nothing of the
aort, ao gratuitously and impudently attributed to him by Mr. Cotton in particular,
nor was there any need to do ao. Mr.
Brown'e course aa a political postmaster waa
notorious, and if the rules of the department
were to be maintained, the Postmaster-
General had no other resource but to do as
he did.
Mr. Cotton's statement that Mr. Davie
recognized hia inferiority in debate to the
wordy postmaster of New Westminster, and
dreaded the sharp -thrusts he gave, will be
newa to most people. When did the Premier ever blanch before Mr. Brown in debate
ur anywhere else? Can Mr. Cotton point to
a single instance of auch a thing? We know
that he cannot, and that he will not even
try. Mr. Davie is the official leader of the
House, and is acknowledged to be facile
princeps the ablest debater in it. Neither
Mr. Brown nor Mr. Cotton could cross
swords with him with the smallest hope of
success. The former muat have been aware
of the small chance he had of success in the
political field against such an antagonist, or
he would not have submitted so tamely to
the order of the Postmaster-General, if he
had had any real hope of success. As for
Mr. Cotton his dullness and prosineaa aa a
debater are about as well known as his dullness and verbosity as an editorial writer,
and theae are qualities which he illustrates
every day in the week on which hia paper is
published. We would remind Mr. Cotton
that he would be better employed in defending himself from the distructive onslaughts
of his town contemporary, the World, than
in writing lies about Mr. Davie, which no
man nf sense believes, and for which he cannot advance a particle of proof. The World
of Tuesday evening contained an article of
this kind, to which we would especially
direct Mr. Cotton's attention. It ia an
article which uo honorable man could afford
to pass over in silence. It remains to be
seen if Mr. Cotton dare reply to it, or otherwise notice it, as any man of good reputation would be bound to do.
A dispatch hug been received at Ottawa
from the colonial i ffice stating that Her
Majesty has been pleased to grant the title
of honorable for life lo those gentlemen who
have acted as speakers of any legislative
council or assembly for a period of three
years.
Some of the Indian tribes in British
Columbia says the Regina Leader have made
great progress in education under the mis-
sonaries; there are several excellent brass
bands among them and two or three newspapers set up eniirely in short hanS characters. A number of the Indiana are said to
be good stenographers.

Recent Improvements Hade is MM Oaa��
structlua of Vault,  and Tbeis D���Wt
Burglar. Become Inventive and so  Ml*
World Wag. and tbe Moon Smiles On.
The most vulnerable part of a vault now
is the edge of the door. It is almost impossible tn obtain an absolutely tight joint,
one which will be impervious to liquid explosives. The *-U method of attack was
bv powder blown into the crock of the
vault door. As tho construction of these
doors ! ecame more perfect this was made
impracticable. Then, the burglar turned
his attention to other explosives and today he uses nitroglycerin*-. Nitro glycer-
ine when warm runs us freely as water. If
the crack of a door ia not absolutely tight
the nitroglycerine will tinil some small
lodging place in it. When exploded it rips
off the door, tears off its outer layers or
onens a space where a larger charge of
explosives can be used. If the joint is too
well litte.i to permit the use of rfltro-
glycerine anil tin* vault is in an isolated
place where powerful e.\| loslves can be
used, dynamite is laid agaii st a weak spot
aud well tamped, Its explosion, either
makes an opening "r weakens the walls or
door so that tools or Other explosive* can
be usen to advantage, \\';'*! a gu 'rantee
of comparative freedom i t operation a
Bet of burglars can diner a modern vault
in one to eight hours, The shortest oro-
cess is usually by tin* use oi' explos'ves,
aud it has been found that the higl* explosives are singularlv local iu effect aad
produce very little sound. Ilniiine and
sledge are often used, though burglars
prefer boring, with the use of a blow p>pe
to draw the temper of the steel attacked.
But the modern construction render, this
sometimes extremely difficult because of
the high conductivity of iron and the close
contact of the cold steel adjacent. Burglars seldom attempt to make holes of more
than an inch in diameter, and the heat
from the small iiaine which can be introduced through such a hole is qniclcly dissipated. Sometimes the burglar botes
through the soft metal and breaks the intervening sheets of hard metal with the
blows of a hammer, removing the metal
piecemeal, It Ise timated that an expert
with finely tempered tools will work
through an inch of a vault wall iu an
hour. It sometimes happens, though, thai
an inexpert burglar abandons a job after
penetrating the outer layer of steel because his poorly tempered tools were all
dulled in the attempt.
ANCIENT HOSPITALS.
These     Institution-,    Were   In
SOU Year.   Before Chri.t.
The first real hospital was one situated
atEpidaurus, and dedicated to JEscnlapius.
This hospital was in full working order
500 years before Christ It consisted
not only of a general hospital, but of two
special hospitals in addition. The Temple
proper contain***! accommodation forordin-
ary or acute cases, and also a hydropathic
establishment. In separate buildimrs
were a lying in h* svital and a chronic
hospital, and to the latter the aged and infirm, and those believed to be iu aiticulo
mortis, were admitted. The priests of
Saturn in Egypt treated people for lunacy
1,500 years before Christ. This last fact is
important, because we find that under
them lunacy was considered as a disease
not to be repressed, but as one lo be over-
eotne by kindness and skilled treatment;
and the temples of Saturn combined much
that is now to be met in many of our best
lunatic asylums. These hospitals and
asylums were founde 1 0:1 the pay priuci
pie, for no one who resorted to them had
bo little self-respect as to desire to obtain
tree medical relief, aud all took care to
compensate those at whose hands they received treatment and benefit.
There were home hospitals at Rome 250
/ears before Christ, called Taberme Xledi-
cse, which at first only contained consulting rooms, where the physicians used to
see out-patients on payment. After experience it waa found that there were
many cases that could be better treated if
they were constantly under ol servation.
So rooms were built for the reception of
in-patients as annexes to tin- Tabernso,
Where paying patients were admitted and
treated successfully. This is a very interesting point, because these Taberna; in-
eluded all the branches of our present
hospitals���i.e., an out patient deportment,
an in-patient department, consulting
rooms, and hospital accommodation for
paying patients; but all those who attended���i. e., both the in-patients and the
out-patients���had to pay for tlie treatment
they received.���The Hospital.
Shoes for This Year.
A woman's congress shoe of the whole
foxed variety of bright dongola is produced. The foxing at the hack extends taper-
ing to the top of the shoe and at the top is
tipped with patent leather. The top is of
plain light colored cloth, with goring to
match it iu color. This is in imitation
button style, the scallop*'1 button niece
forming ihe seam line ukaiii��t the goring
at the front, ami the extension of the fox
ing t** the seam liue at tin-o\ck. Hy this
method the Hhoe is simplified us to the
number of pieces required for the top ami
a minimum of seams iB obtai.ed. With
medium heel and a narrow, rounded toe,
the shoe is ne ,t in appearance, A similar
shoe is of French kid, lhe difference being
that the handsome, broad button piece is
of this bright leather, instead of eloth,
forming a pr.-tty contrast to the dull black
goring, inst"ad of matching it as in the
former. A sample shoe, with a pretly
name, is low cut and a coinbinatiou ot
button and lace fasteners, o'f -oft, black
kid. Down the front is a line of scAlloued-
edge open work, to show the stocking of
the wearer. Tiie elaborate and broad but-
' ton piece has three diamond-edged points,
corresponding to the three buttons, aud a
circular hole is made below each button,
through which also the hosiery is visible
when on the foot. It has a broad, perforated heel foxing of the same material.

words. I picked them up without a
reply, but as I turned to go I had the
gumption, to say in a moody tone:
"I shall fcum after dinner and see if
he's back���that fellow with the beard.
He's took my fancy awful."
I went out with the fierce determination to keep the spirit of that promise.
I would see Taras, but by means they

CHAPTER IV.
THE ESCAPE,
I knew more about the Mariner's Joy
than was known to Putty. Years before
he took the house I earned my living
there, doing a drudge's work and run
ning on errands wueii I was a mere
child. Fly Jiarger hail it then; that was
before improve.neitts ruined the neigh
borhood. The booses in Sweet Apple
lane, now mostly untenanted, were
crowded with tenants. _11tl the Joy was
a favorite "house of cull" for all sorts of
bad characters who lived there, and for
the men employe.! in Baxter's whnrf.
which was then one of the busiest stores
for dry suiting on this side of the river.
Fly Jigger did well by legitimate
trade but he made still more money by
dishonest means aud principally by
plundering Baxter's wharf. For this
purpose he and his crew had made a
passage under the fore-shore, opening at
one end into the cellar of the Joy and a*^
the other end into the cellar of the
wharf. This passage was called the tub
run, because, to prevent the sides falling
in. it was lined with casks with their
heads removed and Bet end to end. As
soon as the house was closed at night
Fly Jigger and his mates would set to
work, going through the tnb inn into
Baxter's wharf and returning with
jrooils from the storerooms. I have seen
them bring out as many as fifty hams
iu a night.
The secret was never found ont, but
when the trade went from Baxter's and
the wharf was cleared out and closed
.the rnn was no longer of auy service.
The wharf watchman, who had been a
party to these robberies, took care to
.close and conceal the cellar opening,
and Fly Jigger masked the opening on
his side with a flagstone and a barrow
load of rubbish, which, trodden down,
presented no difference from the rest of
.the unpaved flour. Previous to that, to
keep tiie brewers out of tho cellar, lie
had removed the beer barrels, which
.thenceforth lie kept set up behind tiie
bar, saving that it was more fair and
squarelike for tiie customers to see their
beer drawn from the wood than through
lhe engine from the deuce knows where.
The closing of Baxter's wharf was a
sad blow to him, but a worse came soon
after, for being of a too uciive disposi
tion he took to smuggling tobacco and
rum from incoming ships, and being
discovered by the excise was sent to
prison, and the Joy lost its license. The
brewers obtained a fresh license to sell
beer and put Putty in' to manage the
house. When lie came, the spring tides
had flooded the cellar, and seeing it was
of no use he had tlie trap screwed down
to save the expense of putting new
hinges on it.   Since then, as I have said,
-no one had ever gone down into tbe
cellar.
With thfise recollections crowding my
mind anil the means they suggested of
delivering Taras filling my heart with N
wild delight, I hurried down Ferryboat
alley, and after looking about carefully
���to make sure that no one was observing
me I wedged myself through the ventilating hole nnil dropped into the wharf
cellar. I knew exactly where the open
ing existed, having taken part myself
in some of the old marauding expeditions, and dropping down upon my
hands and knees I brushed the dirt
away from the stone that covered the
hole. There was not enough light to
see it, but I could trace the outline
plainly enough with my fingers.
But how was I to raise the heavy flag?
There was no ring or anything to catch
hold of, and I knew that if I worked
away the rubbish sufficiently to get my
hands underneath I should still be unable to lift it. I must have something
to pry it up with. A bar of iron would
do. It struck me that I might find
what I needed among the old iron in
Johnson's yard. If I had thought of
that beforehand, I might have brought
it in with me, but I was too impatient
of delay, too eager to begin, to waste
��� time in regrets.
Clambering up to the ventilator, I
looked out. Some boys were playing on
the shore. I dared not show myself
while they were there. It seemed to me
that they would never weary of throw
ing stones into the water, but at length
they gave it up and went away. Then
I slipped out, and pretending to be looking for odds and ends on the shore made
my way up to Johnson's yard and got
in through a gap in the paling. It
didn't take long to find what I wanted
���a broken stoking iron looked to me
just the thing. Asking myself if there
was anything else I should need, it occurred to me that a candle would be
ri\ cessar't, the cellar of the Joy being
even darker than the wharf cellar. The
gates of the yard opened into Sweet Apple lane, and as they closed imperfectly
1 was just able to squeeze through���
thanks to being a kipper.
When Iliad bought a halfpenny candle and a box of matches ont of the
money given me by Putty, the trembling of my knees and a feeling of faint
n !8s reminded me that I had eaten noth
i ig all day, st�� I bought a small loaf and
some cold fish and treated myself to a
cnp of ciiU'ei' with my last halfpenny.
The hi't ; coffee set me up wonderfully,
nml wiln revived energy I returned to
the yard nnd billing the bar under ray
lii'f.ss sue il;od liacl; tn the stairB. Then
niter another cautious look around,
fimliua the const clear, I slipped the
si iking iron turongh the ventilator and
followed it almost as swiftlv.
tt was n harder.inbthan I expected to
move tbi'.ilu-rstone and get it out of the
way. But I stuck to i���, with the perspiration running down my face, until,
the sensation of sickness seizing me
again, I had to give over for a time till I
had eaten my loaf and regained strength.
At length, having worked tlie stone
aside, about a foot out of its place, I
knelt down to feel if the opening was
large enough for me to pass through
;for I had not lit the candle to do this
work), and then to my dismay I discovered that the too careful watchman
had filled the hole with rubbish. Sink
ing down on the ground, I could have
cried with the mingled feelings of rage
and disappointment, but thinking of
Taras desperation overcame these sentiments, and springing up on my knees I
rore at the rubbish with my hands vehemently, like a dog in a warren, deter
mined to reach Taras, though I had to
dig my way to him through the solid
earth.
Happily tlie rubbish was loose and
vielded readily to my hands, and still
���nore happily there was not above four
or five feet of it, or I might never have
got down to the tub rnn with all my de
loruiination. An empty box thrown
lown had got jammed in the bole about
i third of the way down, and bSJpw that
���lipopac�� was <��mpty. Nevertheless it
���ook me many honr�� to get the rubbish
������nt. having nothing to dig with but my
iiaods and nothing but my apron to
I'nrry it fip in wboi I got down a certain
iist.nnre. snd then the box. which at
first sitrb** .corned to have been set there
by *hp band nf Providence, appeared
after im-bilo to have been wedged in by
worst enemy, for it defied all my efforts
**������> loosen it, until my patience and
ti-iigtb wore well high exhausted, ;and
then T had to get to the top and drag ii
*iit. which was even more difficult. Ten
.'clock struck before this task was accomplished.
I had been compelled to light the oa!n-
dle to get the box out, and there was
now not more than an inch left.
I blew out the light and put the end
in my pocket. I could feel my way
tlong the nib run, and the light would
ie needful when I got into the cellar of
the Joy. There wire iron staples in the
s'l'.o of the shaft placed at intervals to
serve as steps. The descent was easy
enough, but at the bottom a fresh obstacle presented itself. I was standing
In water! If the tide was up. it would
be impossible to get through the run,
Hint part of the shore being completely
under water at the flood.
Dropping on my knees, I crawled
fin'.vard, entering the first caak. The
click ooze was high over my wrists, but
still if they were all fairly on the same
level the passage was yet Biilrieieutly
open. The ooze might simply hi t,.;e
earth that had silted through in the
.. .arse of years left in its preseut co:idi
n'u.fby a roceding tide. But what if it
was wet with the rising tide? This
inestion made me pause despite my im
ii.tieut desire to iro on. If the tide rose
*efoi-e I could get Taras out of the cel-
;ar, all escape would be impossible, and
lemined in we should both be at the
nercy of Drigo and Putty. On the
other hand, if 1 waited until the tide had
risen and fallen again, it might be too
.ate to save Taras.
I backed out of the run, clambered
into the cellar and raising myself into
ne casement of tho ventilator looked
nut. The water was eei'tainly high, but
.,-nether it was rising or falling I could
,iot tell. As I looked out a clock chimed
tue half hour past 10    At   11   the Joy

IN STEP WITH THE SEASON
Cur piace is now full of all the dainty goods peculiar to this season. We have everything new that has been produced for the Spring and Summer Trade of 1894. Wa don't want to tire you with prices on one or two insigniflcent
articles���but assure you that this Spring everything in our stock has been marked as low as it's possible to buy the same
quality of goods elsewhere.
As every lady of experience in buying Dry Goods knows���there are certain brands and makes of goods which are
called "seconds" by the manufacturers, and can of course be bought at lower prices than "firsts"-these are often pushed,
in some cities, as first-class goods, and in some cases deceive even a practiced eye.
We never as yet had to resort to this kind of business, and will always try to maintain our reputation for keeping
only the very best goods.
