For a guide to the realms of the pile.

London, Jan. (i.���[Special]���Colonel A.
Iiellin, of the West India Regiment, has
telegraphed to the Bight Hon. H. Campbell-
Bannerman, Secretary of State for War, I he
despatch being dated Warina, December
23rd, as follows: "Before daybreak this
morning our camp was suddenly attacked
by a strong force of natives, several of whom
were armed with rifles. For forty minutes
there was a hot fire, the enemy using treea
for cover. The killed of the West Indin
Regiment are Lieutenant Listoo, Seoond
Lieutenant Wroughton, Sergeant Carraher
and f"nr privates Thf* luted rf iho constabulary wore Captain LjuJy uuj
two privates. The severely wounded
were: Sergeant Field and fourteen privates
of the regiment aud three privates of the
constabulary. The fire Blackening we advanced and found seven magazine rifles and
eight chassepots. Shortly after a wounded
prisoner reported that we had been attacked
by Lieutenant Moritz, of tho French army,
32 Senegalese sharpshooters and 1,200 Kissi
natives. The prisoner stated that Lieutenant Moritz had left Farana with this force
against the Sofas at the end of September
and had arrived December 21st at Tenbi-
kundu, 50 miles northeast of Wanna. Lieutenant Moritz hearing that there was war
in the Canoh district, believed that it must
be ihat it was being carried ou by the Sofas
under Porokerri, a Sofa chief who was trying to escape from tho British troops and
join the Sultan Samuudu. The Moritz party
li ft mi the morning of December 21st and
halted December 22nd, 15 miles northeast of
our camp. He left this point at midnight
under a full moon and * attacked ns, believing us to be Sofas. I wrote to Lieutenant
Moritz, explaining the situation. A letter
had been previously sent on December 13.h
to the commanding French officer at Kissi
in Sh..i*a, giving notice of the approach of
the British troops. At 11 o'clock Lieutenant Moritz was found, severely wounded.
Despite all medical attendance he died
at noon. Before his death he said that
natives had told him tbat we were
Sofas, and that ho had uo idea that we were
British. Lieutenant Moi itz and ten Senegalese who had been killed in the fighting
were buried with military honors. Captain
Lendy and two constables were shot by their
own men. Another letter has been sent to
the French commander at Kissi, informing
him of that occurrence and assuring him
that the friendly relations existing will not
be disturbed owing to Lieutenant Moritz's
mistake. Warina is within our own sphere
which is the source of the Babbes river,
which flows eastward.
Tlie compromise in which the Conservative leaders agreed to the passage of the
Parish Councils' bill has excited the interest
of tlie Lords as regards the modification or
rejection of this measure, which is intended
to revolutionize the whole system of rural
government in England. The concession
granted and the compromise to the Conservatives in no wise alter the main proposals to place the con'rol of the rural
administration under the popular vote.
Henceforth the agricultural laborers, if
they choose to exercise their power,
cau rule parish interests as they
please. The last struggle over the measure
in the House of Commons coucerned the allotment and constitution of poor law boards.
The (.-iovernment agreed to the Conservative
amendments by which the boards are to cooperate with four of the former ex officio
members, and allotments are not to exceed
four acres; one arable and the rest pasture.
Another Conservative amendment provides
that after the termination of the allotment
occupancy, the landlords will uot be liable
for the tenants' improvements. In commenting upou these amendments, the
Spectator      says :       O.ice       the       elect*
Brought   to  a   High   Pitch   Among   the
Tinnees Nation   British   Columbia Indians' Rival Their White Neighbors.
Victoria,  Jan.   6.���[Special]-Away  to
the northwest of America, in the mysterious
corner of   British   Columbia   bordered  by
"unexplored territory" and  hemmed  in by
mighty  mountains,   there dwells a race of
red men who   daily  grow  more  numerous,
who have learned lo admire aud  have made
themselves proficient in many of the arts of
pea'e.
Fluvueg out of the laud which they inhabit and taking its way towards the icebound north is the Parsnip river. From
the opposite borderland the Fraser trails
southward towards the sea. The people are
known to the few travellers who have found
their way among them as the Tinnees, and
they have their infrequent communication
Wiih eiviliziuon chiefly through the Hudson's Bay Company's posts at Fort George
and Fort Fraser. Knowledge of the Tinnees
ia at the present tiu.e extremely limited;
but the information available concerning
them shows that they are au exception to
all other Indian races inhabiting British
North America, with few of whom they
have anything in common���in physique,
tastes, ambitions or legendary history.
Their morals are more strictly guarded than
are those of any white nation of to-day;
they esteem cleanliness, both of person and
surroundiugs, as they do courage; and they
have a saying that "to desert a friend is
worse than to slay him."
The last while visitors to the home of the
Tinnei s were those composing the Government survey party, sent mrnli last summer
under Mr. A. L. Poudrier and which has
but recently returned. All have wonderful
tales to tell of the educational and industrial
progress of this strange people of the wilderness. The appeuded notes of one of the
chiefs of the expedition give some interesting facts concerniug the Tinnees aud the
land they live in.
"The immense country north of the 84th
parallel, generally described as the "lake
region" is hardly known to the present
generation, i ears ago, during the Omtne-
ca gold excitement, a great deal of trade and
travel was taken that way, aud nearly all
the old pioneers are familiar with the wonderful scenery of the section. The large
lakes, Fraser, Stuart, Lac des Fraucais,
Tatia, Tiemblay, etc., have, perhaps, no
equals for picturesque beauty iu the north of
America. I
"Since the gold boom,the only inhabitants
of thia extensive country have been the Indians and a few Hudson's Bay Company
employees. The natives are known as the
Tinnees, this name including the whole race,
some of tha representatives of which inhabit
the country east of the Rocky mountains,
others peopling the lake region proper, and
still other living as far to the south as the
Ghilcotin river. The race is sub-divided
into many families���first the Chilcotius, living on the plain of that name; then the
Carriers, or Porteurs, around Fort Fraser;
aud again, tho Siooaniea and Nahanies,
occupying the country north and east of the
Nechaco river.
"In language, the Tinnees have no relationship with the other tribes of the north,
but curiously, Iudians living as far south as
California, the Navahoes, for example, or
in O.lahoma, as the Chilcotee, speak a
tongue very similar to that of the TtuneeB.
The missionaries of the Roman Catholic
church have long beeu resident among the
Carriers andChilcotins.and the majority have
embraced the faith of whioh these devoted
priests are the messengers and the exponents. Of late years, a young and energetic
missionary, Father Morrice of Stuart lake,
has been giving his time and talents to the
upbuilding of a Tinnees nation which shall
compare not unfavorably in many ways
with that of the whites. That he is succeeding beyond the expectations of any is
admitted by all who have had the opportunity of observing the results following his
teaching.
"The mother tongue of the Tinnees, which
is exceedingly rich ie expression, has been
through his efforts  reduced   io a system of
past two years Father Morrice his com*
p'eted a Tinnees grammar and at the present time he has a dicucnary in type."
"There i*," says Mr. Poudrier, "no other
part of the province wheie the Indians are
so highly civilized, so truthful aud so honest
���rare qualities for an Indian race. One
great advantage traceable to the publication
of the Nut-., is the development of a taste for
and a knowledge of agriculture. The hunting and trapping are uearing an end in the
lake region and the natives see that the resource which they must in future look to is
farming. The new generation is fast becoming a community of scientific tillers of
the soil. Were all the Indians of America
in so advanced a state they would at no
time Le a cause of anxiety; governments
would never he called on to supply their
want.**; and their white bruthei could learn a
little from them that he does uot now
know."

A Special Meeting.
At the special meeting of the city council
held last night to receive the auditoi'a report, there were present Mayor Haslam,
Aldermen Nightingale, Frame, Cocking,
Quennell, Craig, Dobeon and McKinnell.
Tlie report was duly presented aud received by the council.
Aid. McKinnell complimented the mayor
and board in general on the work that had
been done during the year. To the mayor
was due the amount of improvements that
had taken place and to tlie harmony that
prevailed in the council chamber. He had
heard considerable growling among the ratepayers as to the council having taken the
re-survey question iuto their own hands,
but considered that they would appreciate
the advantage of having had it done.
Mayor Haslam said that it was a well
known fact that the ratepayers voted against
the re-survey of the city. They evidently
did uot understand the position. If there
had been uo re-survey there would have
been litigation which would have cost far
more tban the cost of the re-survey. Ho
believed that the citizens would commend
the council for having had it done. He had
written to the Attorney-General to bring
the aet in, legalising the survey. The Attorney-General had agreed to have the act
thrown in. He was sure that they were
much obliged to Mr. Davie for the attention
that h" had pail and the move he had
promised to make. Mr. Haslam further remarked that he believed that though some
of the ratepayers were against the re-survey
of the city they would ev. ntually recognize
the advautage, as the old landmarks had
been lost.
Aid. Dobeson said that he had voted for
the re survey of the city, and believed if
the matter had been laid before the people
in the right way at first they would have
agreed to it.
Aid. Quenuell said that be also had voted
tor the re-survey and believed that if it had
not been done the people would have become dissatisfied with them.
Aid Nightingale had also voted for the
re-survey and thought that the growling
against it was disappearing; and the people
ot Nanaimo would appreciate the advantage
of having had it done.
Mayor Haslum said that they as a council
were the partita to bring thia matter to a
climax. The action of the council of 1887
made it necessary that a resurvey should be
takeu as they had had considerable alterations made. Mr. Haslam questioned
whether the revenue of the city wonld
pay the expenses that would have been incurred by legislation if tbe resurvey had not
taken place.
Aid. Dobeson said that up to the present
date there had been uo maps of the city
that were correct, and fit to work from.
The council then adjourned.

Where "Sterling" Came From.
Sterling Bigniik-a money from the legalized Bt.'imlard of coinage of Great
Britain. Accrding to one theory the
term originated aa follows: It is a corruption of Easterliug���a person from
north Germany, on the continent of
Europe, and therefore from the east in
geographical relation to England. The
Easterlings were ingenious artisians
who came to England in the reign of
Henry III to refine the silver money, and
the coin they produced was called mon-
eta Easterlingorum���the money of the
Jin-sterlings.���Now York Evening Sun.

Lightning nnd Ruin.
It is popularly supposed that the sudden downpour which usually follows a
bright Hash of lightning is in some way
caused by the flash. Meteorologists have
proven that this is not the case and
that, exactly to the contrary, it is not
only possible but highly probable that
the sudden increased precipitation is the
real cause of the flash.���St. Louis Republic.

ABOUT   SOME   SILLY   SQUIBS.
The Vanoouver News-Advertiser has not
found space to retract and apologise for the
two or three columns of abuse that it levelled at Premier Davie, said abuse being based
on an incorrect report in the Colonist and a
false report in the Times: but it has space
to print two impudent and foolish squibs
about Mr. Davie's correction of our report
of his reply to Messrs. Foster, Keith and
McKenzie. Mr. Davie himself pronounced
our report of his main speech excellent, but
found some objection to our report of his
reply, and added some explanations We
have already explained that our report of
his reply, as regards part of it, was not
verbatim, owing to the unavoidable absence
of The Telegram reporter during part of
the time Mr. Davie was speaking. The
News-Advertiser, after suggesting the idea
of being out for ���"refreshments" and bo on,
takes advantage of this circumstance to air
its wit, the said wit getting musty. Or perhaps its editor had just returned to his desk
from partaking of refreshments, and was
himself a little confused. At all events the
wit of the squibs in question is of a very
rapid sort. It. wou'd bet;er become, the
managing editor to explain to his readers
the foolish blunder he committed in chooB-
ing two obviously erroneous paragraphs in
the reports published by the Victoria papers
of Mr. Davie's speeches here. But the
managing editor does nothing of the sort.
That would be too manly a course for him
to pursue. He chooses r.ither to print his
silly squibs, which he evidently thinks are
humorous. His readers may be laughing,
but if bo it iB at the managing editor, not
with him.
THE FRENCH OUTRAGE IN   WEST
AFRICA.
The French forces on the west coast of
Africa have committed a very serious blunder in firing upon and shooting down
six men and four officers of the British
West India regiment, on duty on debatable
land not far from the British territory of
Sierra Leone. Full details havo not at this
writing been pub'iihed, on this side the Atlantic at least, but it appears that news of
the slaughter has been confirmed by advices
received at the foreign office in London aud
the war department. The news is most serious. It is at present impossible to understand how such a blunder (if it was a blunder) could have beeu committed, for the
British West India regiment wear British
scarlet uniforms, carry British arms and observe all the regulations of army discipline.
The regiment is in fact a British regiment
of colored troops. It is not possible at present to explain the attack made upon the
men of the British West India regiment by
the French troops, also colored, unless upon
the theory that it was done of set purpose
by some fire-eating Frenoh officer, who
thought or chose to think that the British
troops were trespassing on French territory,
or territory claimed by France, and
whose real object waa to bring on
a war between the two countries. The officers of the French army and navy have of I
late showed a very hostile spirit towards '
England, and a disposition to bring ou a
war between France and (**reat Britain.
This spirit waB plainly exhibited by the officers of the French -squadron in Siamese
waterB, when the dispute was in progress
between the British and French Governments regarding French aggreBBion in Siam.
The extreme spirit of moderation shown by
the Gladstone Government, in that dispute,
seems to have begotten the idea among the
French military and naval men, not that
Great Britain was oalm and strong, and her
Government could afford to be moderate because she waa strong, but that the British
were afraid to fight the Frenoh. It will
now be Been whether this theory was correct, and whether the national honor is safe
in the hands of Mr, Gladstone and his followers. We think that unless ample reparation and apology is made by the Frenoh
Government for the outrage committed by
their iroopa, war cannot be avoided. It
will be interesting to watch the oourse pursued by Mr. Gladstone and his colleagues.
His minister of foreign affairs iB an able
man, and we believe sufficiently
spirited. We think he will not
be a party to a tame and
cowardly policy, even if such should be
favored by a majority of the cabinet But
we oannot think so ill of Mr. Gladstone and
the British Liberals, as to suppose that they
will timely submit to what at present seems
the greatest outrage that in, our time has
been committed against Great Britain by
any foreign power. If they do, if they tamely
submit, to outrage and wrong, the day When
the Gladstone Government will fall before
the indignation of the British people will
not be long delayed; We have long held
trie opinion, and we have been nearly alone
in holding it, or at all events in expressing
it, in Canada at least, that the British Government should have openly and frankly
joined the triple alliance long ago. If they
had done so we do not believe that the present outrage would have been committed.
Now Great Britain must face the music
alone, if France, relying on RuRBia, sets her
at defiance in this affair, and tella her to do
her worst; or she must now join the triple
alliance on compulsion, and take her share
in the European struggle that would under
such circumstances be inevitable.
Mr. Laeoi'Ohkre is giving his friends,
the Americans, a sample of his peculiar style
of discussing things. He Bays in reference
to the Chicago exhibition "that perfect
chaoB prevails in the management or ex-
management of the fair, and that unless
some superior authority comes to the rescue
the prospect of British exhibitors getting
their goods back is extremely remote." It
ia not so had aB this, we think. Ltbouchete,
as usual, is exaggerating, and putting the
worst possible construction on things. The
Americans, whatever else they may be, are
not petty thieves, and the British and all
other exhibitors will ultimately get back
their goods all right. Labouchere is nothing but an impudent mischief-maker, but it
would be just as well if he oonfined his
mischief-making to the United Kingdom and
did not set himself to stir up international ill-
feeling by his injurious remarks on matters
concerning which he has probably no special
information.
The San Francisco Okronicle says: "The
Chicago authorities should see to it that
there is no unnecessary delay in carrying
out the sentence of Prendergast. The assassin's counsel have mapped out the legal
programme of technioal devices, which they
intimate will consume a whole year, but
they should not be allowed to trifle with the
execution of the law. There seems to be
no good ground for an appeal, and if this be
denied the murderer should be hanged
within two months." The Chronicle is
right. Prendergast ought to be hanged at
once by way of example to other half-crazy
cranks of murderous proclivities. If the
Califoi'nians had done with t'hrif-. Evans
what the Chronicle advises the Chicagoans
to do wih Prendereist, Evans would not
now be at liberty to continue his c*rere <>f
crime. Such fellows should always be
promptly and effectually hanged on conviction.
The Fortniijhtly Review for December, in
an urticle entitled "The Irish Rhetoricians,"
speak as follows of Mr. Blake : "Mr. Edward Blake, who, whimsically enough, was
imported from Canada at the urgent suggestion of T. M. Healy, will go back again
soul* time at the spontaneous suggestion of
an entire Irish party. Dr. Butt has been
alluded to heretofpre as an imitation of
O'Connell. It was hardly worth while to go
ao far at thiB late day for an inferior imitation of Butt. The Canadian is of present
importance, because he has a vote on the
party committee. He will attract a certain
modified and restrained interest to the end
of his career in Great Britain as the man
who sold the Eighty Club with a haltingly-
read manuscript oration." Mr. Blake does
not seem to have very favorably impressed
the stolid Britishers. But if he wins the
solid Irish vote for his party the next general
election for the Dominion Parliament in
Canada, and if by means of it he iB raised to
the premiership of the Dominion, he will
have achieved the great object of his ambition, and he can afford to let them talk of
him aa they please in England, Mr. Blake
had very solid reasons, as a Canadian politician, for taking up the Irish cause as he
did.

After Wharfage.
Victoria, Jan. 6.��� [Special.]���The Swan
Lake hotel, just outside Victoria, was destroyed by tire early this morning, the in-
-mates escaping with their lives but saving
nothing. The family had an extremely
.narrow escape. Miss Brown firBt awoke
and found her room filled with flames, and
she alarmed the others. All escaped in
their night dresses. A little boy was painfully hurt getting out. Immediately after
the family quitted the home the floors of
the bed rooms fell in.
A rumor has been current during the last
few days that au agent of the Canadian Paoific Railroad has been negotiating for the
purchase of a site at the outer wharf for
their ocean steamers; also that the company
were making enquiries as to harbor facilities at Sidney.

Nicola lake, 57 miles from Kamloops, was
burned in a house last night with his three
daughters, Annie, aged 12 years; Jemima,
aged 10, and Lily, aged 8. Tho four
slept in a log house while Gilmour's
son, James, the hired man, Robert
Bell and Ed. Burns occupied a small shack
.50 yards away. Gilmour and his family retired early last night, while the men and
James went to the shack. About daybreak
the boy was wakened by a glare of light on
the window of the shack. He rushed out to
find that the roof of the house had fallen in
and no trace of the old man or girls was to
be seen. There was no other house within
two miles.

Both are valuable to us. The past for what it has taught us, and the
future for what it has in store. Modern methods that smack of primitive
honesty. No retrogression, but a steady, onward march in the van of the
column. The experience of to-day turned into a source of profit to-morrow.
A continual evolution in keeping up with the times. Forecasting the future.
Feeling the popular pulse. These are some of the things that have brought
us in good luck, and made our Groceries, Provisions, Hats, Caps, Boots, Shoes
and Dry Goods so popular
Any rooster can crow, but it takes money to do it in this space. Why
should we spend it in spreading false reports. We don't! We want you to
try our goods, such as Fine New Currants, Raisins, Peels, Nuts, Cakes, Figs
Dried Fruits, etc., etc., for Xmas trade. We know the result will be beneficial
to us both.   Try us.

LOCAL  JSEWS.
The Nanaimo Poultry Society.
A large number of offiuerB an*l member*of
tbe executive committee were present l����t
evenii g a tl*e tirat meeting held Bince the
reciD' ��ho��. Upou the oompleiioo of ihe
City Couooii'* business, the poullrymen got
to work, and for a couple of hours were engaged iu cementing their organization and
forming preliminary plans for the'holding of
a large exhibition next winter. Among
those present were Mayor A. Haslam, M.P.,
(ohftiru an), Aid. E. Nightingale, Aid Dohe-
son, Mr. McKechnie, Oeo. Norrig, H. Shepherd, K Jurvis, J. Thompson, J. Soles, S.
W. Lubb, T. M. Craig, J. VV. Graham and
i. E. R. Tagart. hon. sec.
After the minutes of tbe last meeting had
been read and adopted, Mr. Geo. Williams
(Back of Britiah Columbia), and Mr. R.
Kenyon were added to the committee. The
treasurer, Mr. Tagart, submitted a statement * f the receipts and expenses conuec'.ed
with the ahow held laat month. The balance

In addition there was paid on capital ac
count for pens, drinking cups and equip
ment the sum of $204.07, leaving a total
deficit of $363.73 to be dealt with.
Upon motion it waB resolved to ask Mr.
Geo. Williams to act as honorary auditor.
It was suggested that the deficit be met
by the issue of bonds, to be taken up by
citizens and exhibitors, the society giving
the show peuB and equipment (properly insured) as security, and further guaranteeing
the payment Irom the gate receipta of the
next show. After some discussion on this
it was decided to incorporate the society
and a subcommittee consisting of Aid. R.
Nightingale, Ur. McKechnie, R. Jarvia und
the honorary secretary, waB appointed to
take the initial steps as regards this, and to
consider the best means of liquidating the
debt and the above named together with
the officers of the society to be appointed
the first board of trustees.
A letter WaB read from Mr. Theo. Hewea
the judge at the ahow, complaining (hat a Mr. J. B. Carmichael of Victoria had endeavored lo
prejudice the officers of the Seattle Poultry
Club against him by circulating false statements regarding him. It was unanimously
resolved that the secretary be requested to
notify Mr. Jno. B. Carmichael of Victoria:
1.���That this society has learned with in
tense disgust of his (Carmichael's) attempt
to undermine the professional Btanding of
Mr. Theo. Hewes by writing to an officer of
the Seattle Poultry Club and stating to bim
(on the eve of the Seattle show) that Mr.
Hewes was "a failure as a judge, and not
oompetent to act in that capacity;" alao tbat
this society was dissatisfied with the judge's
work at our first annual show, such state
ment s being absolutely unwarranted, as a
testimonial on file signed by most of the
exhibito s will abundantly prove. 2.
That, for the future, Mr. Carmichael's presence aB an exhibitor will be dispensed with
at tbe Nanaimo Poultry Society's exhibitions.
Resolved that the president, vice-presi
dents and hon secretary be appointed a com
mittee to make enquiries as to securing a
suitable hall for the holding of the next
show, and that they submit a report one
month henoe at a meeting to be called for
the sole consideration of this matter.
The Hon. Edgar Dewdney (Lieutenant-
Governor), Hon. Theo. Davie, Q.C., (Pre
mier of B.C.), Hon. J. H. Turner (Minister
of Finance), aud the president and vice-
presidents were by an unanimous vote elect
ed life members of the society.
The meeting closed with a very hearty
vote of thanks to the secretary, Mr. Tagart,
to Mr. Teague, of Victoria, and to the mayor
for his presence iu the chair.
Tbe Municipal Elections.
To-morrow at the City Hall, between the
hours of noon and 2 p. m., nominations will
be received hy Returning Officer Leighton
for mayor, aldermen and school trustees for
1891. The only candidate in the field for
the mayoralty ia Aid. Quennell, who will
probably be elected by acclamation. Ex
mayor John Hilbert has published a card
declining to offer himself for election owing
to the pressure of business cares. Very little interest appears to be taken in the elections, and a complete list of those intending
to stand for election as aldermen had not,
at last accounts, been officially announced.
It is probable that the majority of the old
board will be elected.
A Clever Entertainment.
That the Saturday night popular entertainments of the Y.M.C.A. are steadily
growing in favor was evidenced luat night
by the crowd that gathered to witness the
performance of the High School pupils,who,
together with those responsible for their
training and preparation are to be congratulated on the success of their efforts.
The programme opened with a chorus
"Evening Belli," which went with a dash
and verve that would have been creditable
to older performers. The recitation by
Miss Bennie and the instrumental duet by
Miss Eraser and A. Morgan was well received. The tarce "Vice Veraa" was well
acted out, and evoked hearty applause.
Then came an instrumental solo by Mark
Morgan, a recitation, and dialogue by
Misses Booth, Fraser, Young and Mark
Morgan. The second half of the programme was equally enjoyable, beginning
with an instrumental solo by A. Morgan,
succeeded by a clever and amusing farce,
"Tramps vs. Female Vanity," the parts in
which were well supported. An instrumental solo by Miss Fraser went well, and
tbe programme ended with a pretty tableau,
"The Court of the Year," which last waa an
eminently praiseworthy production. The
gathering dispersed with God Save the
Queen.

TROUBLE US IN 6LEEP.
A Wvw Example* of Disturbed Slmnowr
That lUuatrate a Ilrlght Btmark Mad*
bf an Illustrious rn.l   Eematfcjble Km-
perleneea In Sleep.
A lawyer who had been overworked
rose in his sleep, went into tho hall of
his house and discharged a pistol. The
household hurried to the place and
found him at the head of the stairway,
awake, but much bewildered. He had
dreamed of burglars and had gone to attack them. One member of the family
���slept through the noise. When he came
into the dining room���before he had
heard of the events of the night���he complained that his sleep had been much
���disturbed. He had dreamed that ho had
been condemned to be shot, that he had
been led to the place of execution and
had fallen senseless when the guns were
fired.
A lady dreamed that a man came into
her room, poured some water into a basin, carried the splashing water to her
bedside and began to sprinkle it over her.
She awoke and heard a loud splashing*.
At first she was motionless with fear,
but presently sho lighted a candle and
went to tho basin, where she found a
mouse making frantic efforts to get ont
of the water.
Another dreamed that she had a severe earache, that she rose, unlocked a
door that separated her room from one
in which two children slept and wont
to a shelf where was a lotion whioh she
applied to her ear. When she awoke,
she found herself in her own bed and
without pain. The door was still
locked, but in a few minutes one of the*
children began to cry that his ear ached,
and she rose and went to the shelf for
the lotion.
A young man dreamed that he was In
his office, busy with a troublesome estimate, when a woman came in with a
screaming baby and hegan to walk rapidly up and down tho room, so that it
was impossible for the calculator to remember his figun s. Presently tha woman thrust tho child into his arms, and
be was so startled by this that he awoke,
but the screams still troubled his ears,
for a mother in u neighboring room was
walking about vainly trying to quiot a
crying child.
Another incident appears to be a case
of thought transference. Several years
after the death of her husband, a widow,
lying awake one night, recalled vividly
some scenes of her husband's last illness.
Presently her daughter, who was beside
her, awoke and said, "Oh. mamma, 1
have been going over in my dreams all
the scenes of papa's illnpna.'.' She then
told her dream, in which the scenes were
almost the counterpart of those that had
been recalled by her mother.
DreaTiH"-; sometimes answer questions
and carry on more or lees coherent conversations.
A lady had a summer cottage oo an
island in* Muskoka. One night her sons
wero Stormstaid on the mainland, and a
young English visitor went to sleep full
of apprehension that Indians might visit
tbe house while their protectors were
absent.
In the night the hostess was snddenly
roused by some one clutching her arm.
and when she opened her eyes she saw
her guest standing by the bedside.
"��h, Mrs. Laughton, Mrs. Laughton,"
exclaimed the girl in a hoarse whisper,
"there's a man at the window���an Indian
He's gone to get something to climb in
by."
The next moment Era was fumbling
about on the floor.
"What are yon doingT asked Mrs.
Laughton.
"I have some liniment In my valise,"
was the answer. "I'm going to get it
out, and when he puts his bead through
the window again I'll throw it in his
eyes."
Mrs. Laughton, who was not nerrons,
began to laugh, but Eva paid no attention and presently asked, "Where's the
button hook?"
"What do you want it forr
"Why, Mrs. Laughton." said Eva
aloud, and in a very indignant tone, "do
yon think I would allow myself to be
seen anywhere with my shoes unbuttoned? No man wonld respect that kind of
girl."
In the morning when Mrs. Laughton
-awoke and looked across the room to
Eva's bed Bho saw tho girl sitting up.
gazing with dismay at her crookedly buttoned shoes in which she had slept, She
hatl no recollection of the nnuiiiks ilia
had made in tbe night, and it ��h evident that she had been asleep &U thu
time.
One night in camp I heard a peculiar
���ound near the middle of the tent, and
by the dim light I saw one of the campers apparently trying to climb up the
tentpole.
"W hat are you doingr I asked.
"There's a snake in my bed," she answered, "so I'm going to sleep up there."
"Up there!"
"Yes, why nott B will to mote oom-
tortable."
Then, with a sudden change of tone,
stte exclaimed, "I forgot to say my prayers." Lut instead of kneeling she picked
her way through the tent to the foot of
eoe of the beds and lay there till morning. She did not remember the conversation of the night, but told us that she
had a habit of talking in her sleep, and
that she had often conversed with her
sisters while she was sleeping soundly.���

Beg io reeommend their Large and Assorted
Met With a Serious Kail.
"You are very late this morning, Mr.
Baldwin," said a dry goods merchant recently to one of hia clerks. "Do not let
it happen again."
"Very sorry," said the clerk humbly.
"I met with a serious fall."
"Indeed," replied the merchant, relenting.    "Are you hurt much?"
"Principally, sir, in your estimation,"
answered the clerk respectfully.
"Oh, nevermind that," said the merchant kindly. "I am very sorry and had
no intention to be severe. We are all
liable to accidents. How did you get the
fall?"
"Well, you see, sir," said th�� clerk
confidingly, "I was called quite early
this morning���earlier, ia ttct, than
usual."
"Ahr
"Yes, sir; but somehow or other I fell
asleep again."
"Go to your desk, sir, and don't try
that on again," exclaimed the merchant,
with an air of severity which was belied
by the twinkle in his eye, which denoted
that he enjoyed th* joke.���New York

Lightning'*] Strange Selection.
Probably one of the most remarkable
lightning accidents of the period was
that which took place in one of the eastern counties lately. A man was shearing a sheep. Another man, panning on a
pony, stopped to exchange a few words
with the shearer and watch tl'te clipping
operation for a minute or two. He had
been standing there but a very short
time when a sharp crack of thunder was
preceded by a blinding flash of lightning.
The shearer was stint led almost out of
his senses by seeing the pony and its
rider suddenly collapse in a heap, but in
a second the man was up, quite unhurt.
Then the shepherd, happening to glance
at the animal beneath him, found that
the lightning had served it as it hail
served the pony. The sheep was stone
dead! This, it may be as well to state,
iB a perfectly true story.���London Tit-
Bits. 	
French Politeness.
Suppose French politeness is a myth,
it is one to be cultivated the world over.
Even the humblest pedant in the smallest province is endowed with an all conquering courtesy that is brought into
play in the most commonplace matters.
If our men could ouly be taught some of
it, how much more easily would run the
wheels of life's machinery! Business i
business, of course. The rush and worry
of money getting dwarf the real nature
yet at the same time stocks would act no
more irregularly, bills would be no less
ready to be paid, panics would occur no
more frequently if the arbitrators of
great affairs would but remember to
bring into their business life a little mor*������
of the softening influence or refined
courtesies that are the flowers iu a meadow of rank weeds.���New York World.
Bismarck's Advice to Student*.
Only now, and in a roundabout way,
via Bonn, has the text of the speech
which Prince Bismarck made at the reception of Bonn students become known.
The prince confessed that at the university he neglected study, but added: "The
only thing that I aiii sorry for on looking back to those times is tbat I could
not later on make up for what I had neglected then. What one has learned afterward (loos not remain so firmly in one's
memory. I do not dissuade you from
working, but I am not horrified if my
sons commit studentlike excesses, and
above all things I believe that the student's life in corporations has this advantage���that it somewhat steels the
character by subjecting each to the criticism of his comrades. This is a great
thing. As long as one belongs to a corporation, to the opinion of which one attaches much importance, one does'not
easily go astray. Tho Hamo thing plays
an important part later on in life. What
iB it that ia the backbone of German officials? The university and tho sword-
knot."���Berlin Cor. London News.
How to Live if You Wtah to Live Long.
Aside from the very important and
controlling influence of inheritance, of
diet and of temperate habits, the points
to be learned from the few statistical
data attainable are that longevity is promoted by a quiet, peaceful life in a retired and rural community, where there
is freedom from nervous strain and worrying and excessively laborious toil. The
business man, with increasing cares and
responsibilities, the mill operative toiling hard to keep together the souls aud
bodies of himself and his family, the
politicians, the hardworking professional
men, are not the chief contributors to
the centenarian ranks. Dr. Holyoke indeed became a centenarian, but his example has rarely been followed by his
professional brethren.���Boston Medical

What is the cause of all this noise ar^d bustle around our Bargain Counter ? "We har e had, and/other people have
had, Bargain Counters before, but r ot on th���--* same scale. What constitutes a Successful Bargain Counter, anyhow ?
Just simply this���make every article on it so Low in Price that it will cause an exclamation of Wonder and Surprise in
every instance where the price is given.   Tt is no trouble then to make sales.
See the Costumes we are selling at Half Price. There's not an objectionable one among them. We have already
sold eight or ten and expect to clear every one of them out this month.
We believe in keeping our stock clear, eo as to be able every Season, as it comes round, to give our customers nice
clean goods in all the latest novelties the market produces To be able to do this we have, of course, to slaughter some
stuff at Ridiculous Prices.
We almost forgot to mention that we intend clearing out our balance of Ladies' and Children's Waterproofs, at

To JOHN HILBERT, ESQ.
Sir,���We, the undersigued citizens and
ratepayers of the City of Nanaimo, do hereby request that you will again allow yourself to be placed in nomination for the office
of Mayor of this City for the year 1894,
Knowing your earnest, and well directed
efforts to advance our City's interests during the pai-t, we again call on you to take
the direction of our City's affairs. Having
full confidence in you, we will use our best
endeavors to elect you for the ensuing term.
Hoping that you will accede to our request, we remain, respectfully yours,
383 Names.
To the Electors and Ratepayers, to the number of 383, who signed and presented the
requisition, requesting me to again allow
my name to be placed in nomination for
Mayor for 1894:
Ladies and Gentlemen,���After careful
consideration, and consulting a number ol
my friends, I find that it will be impossible
for me to do justice to the City, as it requires a great deal of time, as well aB money,
which I cannot spare at present without
neglecting my own business, which will require my whole attention during the present year. I hope, however, at Borne
future time to again be in a position to devote myself to public matters.
Thanking  you  for  your kind wishes and
the geuerous support you hare offered me,
I havo the honor to be,
Yours respectfully,
61 3t JOHN HILBERT.
