Tho Oanndian Pacific Eaiiway
will in a few years coaso to bo the
greatest railway in the world. The
Russians arc building u Siberian Pacific Eaiiway to connect St. Petersburg with Vladivostok on the Sea
of Japan. When that road is finished, five years hence, it will only be
necessary to send our Yokohama
steamers on to Vladivostok to put
a girdle round the earth in forty
days. As westward tlie star of Empire holds its way, we presume that
this great railway will be the opening up of new fields of interprise for
the Anglo- Saxon still pressing forward beyond tho wide Pacific to the
fur West.—Montreal Witness.
Russia In Central Asia.
The pilgrims, of whom large numbers are now arriving at Pesshawur,
on the way to Mecca, sta)e that the
Russians are showing activity, that
a branch railway is being made from
tho Askabad-Merv line south-wards
towards Sarakhs, and that Ponjdeh
is being connected with Merv by
telegraph. Peraestent reports reach
Lahore that tho Russian officials aro
intriguing with the Governor of Ba-
dakshan and tho ruler of Ohitral, und
that tlio Maharajah Dhuleep Singh
is to be omployed stirring up troubles
in Cashmere and the Punjab. They
also report plots and disturbances in
Bokhara. The story telegraphed
from Europe that the Afghans killed
fourteen high Bokharan officials at
Kirkee is discredited here. Of course
rumors brought from Afghanistan
and central Asia by pilgrims and
travelling nierchan_t| ju.ust Jje a re-(
ceived with great caution: but, after
making every allowance for exaggeration, it is apparent that there is a
general feeling of unrest in those
countries, and it seems highly probable that the central Asian question
is again about toenter a criticalstage.
Little importance is attaohed here to
Dhuleep Sihgh's machinations, as it
is believed that he has no influence
with the Sikhs. — London Times'
Calcutta Correspondence, June 5.
An Accomplished Scoundrel.
Water M. Gibson, tho deposed
Prime Minister of Hawaii and son-
in-law of King Kalakaua, has seen
a cheokorcd careor. He is a native
of South Carolina, and first came
into public notice through his violation of the neutrality laws in selling
arms to the Venezuelan Government. He was arrested for this,
but managed to escape. He was
next heard of in charge of a schooner-
load of ice bound for Brazil. This
venture proved a failure, as the ice
had melted before tho vessel got to
its destination. Gibson next turned
up as the leader of a rebellion against
the Dutch Government in tho Sum-
atras. Ho was captured nnd sentenced to be hanged, but again escaped while awaiting execution in a
prison in Javo. Having put to sea
in n small boat, he was picked up by
an American ship and taken to
Liverpool. There he represented
to tho United States consul, Nathaniel Hawthorne, that he was tho
law-ful heir of a British nobleman
nnd was in search of his estate. He
seems to have entirely won tho confidence of Hawthorne, who devoted
two or throe pages of his note book
to reminiscences of Gibson, one of
whicli is to the eft'ect that tho adventurer borrowed enough money
from him to get back to the United
States anil nover repaid it. Gibson
next went to Washington nnd
brought suit against Holland for
$100,000 damages for false imprisonment. The Seoretary of State interested himself in his case until the
Dutch Government forwarded proofs
of Gibson's treason. The hitter then
disappeared, and soon after turned
np in Utah, where he convinced
Brigham Young of the feasibility of
forming a Morman colony in tho
South Pacific. Ho whs sont to Honolulu, whore ho established a church,
proclaiming himself a representative
of tho Morman lendor. Having acquired a largo portion of the Islnnd
of Luuai, through contributions of
his nativo converts, he forsook religion, started a newspaper and dovoted
himself to politics. In this way he
became bo influential as to arouse
tho fear of tho king, who, in order
to conciliate him, madohimhisPrimc
Minister. Tho unscrupulous uso
whicli he made of his power is now
pretty well known, and it ended last
week in his overthrow. He will
probably be hoard of again. Suoh
men are not easily discouraged.--

OTHER ITEMS OF INTEREST.
By Ar-'Hoclated Press.
CI1BAP PETROLEUM.
Findlay, Ohio, July 21.—The Buckeye Pipe Lino Co. has reduced the'
price of crude potruleutn to fifteen
cents a barrel, tho lowest point over
touched iu the history of the product.
It will have the effect of practically
closing the entire northwest Ohio oil
fields, which havo a capacity of 100,-
000 barrels per day. Tho producers
of this district will hold a meeting here
on Saturday to discuss the situation
and take steps to protect their interests, which in view of this cut in price
aro being ruined.
DYNAMITE EXPLOSION.
Ottawa, 111., July 21.—At Streator,
this morning, a carload of dynamite
had just been received, and
was being placed in the magazine
when the lightning struck it.
The force of the explosion threw thousands of persons from their beds, while
one hundred houses were completely
wrecked. The shock was heard 13
miles distant. The total loss will exceed $15,000. Hundreds of men are
thrown out of employment, and many
rendered homeless. Threo deaths have
occurred, and forty persons aro moro or
less injured.
A OHINESE irKLEHKATlON.
Ohicaoo, July 21.—This being the
30th birthday of Wo Sing, a laundry-
man under the Union hotel at the cornor of Madison and Canal streets, he
projected a celebration according to
Chinese custom. He had fireworks in
his cellar and was just lighting some
bright offensive tapers in front of the
paper joss, when u spark Hew into a
magazine of fire works which went off,
setting the laundry on lire. The flames
quickly spread to the hotel above, and
broke into tho small jewelry store noxt
door, from whence the tire communicated to the roof of tho third building
along Canal street. Wo Sing ran to
the river and jumped in. Being rescued he ran to the lake and took another plunge, and while the police were
fishing him out, tho fire was extinguished.   Loss $15,000.
t'HANOE  OP TUNS.    ■
London, July 21.—France is anxious to get the Afghan matter out of
the way, in order that it may not hamper Russia's operations in the Balkans.:
The ^ttarfefiy irtetrtVu?, ono of the most
uncompromising organs of high class
Tory literature, has evidently had a
visitation of light through tho recent
tribulations of the ministry. Through
oil the parliamentary controversy on
tho Irish question, it has never, until
now, beon ablo to see that the Irish
peoplo nnd tho Liberal minority in
tho constituencies and in the house of
cemmonB wero entitled to any consid-.
crution whatever. It has stubbornly'
contended that tho viewB ond sentiments of tho people of tho United
Kingdom, barring a comparatively few1
malcontents in Ireland, were faith*,
fully represented by the government's
policy. Now it admits to the surprise
of all, that there are signs of a change in
tho public mind with regard to the
Irish question, and guardedly advises
the cabinet tu turn its sails to the prevailing broozo. Evidently tho reports
of tho recent olectious have ponotratod
tho Tory shell in which tho Iteviem
office is encased.
TOE KIX'HO SHIELD.
London, July 21.—Tho shooting
for tho Elcho challenge shield at Wim-
blodou to-day resulted in Englnnd
scoring 1570, Scotland 1552, Ireland
1650.
THE GOVERNMENT YIELDS.
London, July 21.—The government
proposes establishing a sliding scale
for abatomont of tlio judicial rents
during tho noxt threo years. Parnell
congratulated them for accepting the
leading provisions of his bill of lost
year.
WOULD UE T»AU> ROB1IKR.1.
St Loins, July 21.—The train mon
of tho Vimdalia train, duo here last
night, report that at Long Point, this
side of Indiana, tho conductor discovered four rough looking men on
tho rear plntform of tho baggage car.
Hu ordorod them off, but the train
started to go on to Rons, where they
wore all again fouud. When tho train
reached (jrconup crossing thoy wero
forcibly ejected from the train and
they moved away, but as tho train
wns passing a clump of bushes near
tho crossing they opened tiro from
rovolvors nnd Bont somo twenty bullets whistling through the bsggago and
exprcsB and passenger cars. Luckily
nobody was shot, but tlioro wero. several narrow escapes.
THE OaUDEB ATLANTA.
Washington, July 21.—In his report to Secretary Whitney of the
trials of tho guns of tho cruiser Atlanta, Capt. Burce says not only wore tho
gun carriagos disabled, ns Heretofore
reported, but nlso tho nrranffement of
tho buttory is bad, as somo of tho guns
will havo to be abandouod by the
orows. The othor guns may be fired
at a target. Commenting on the results of tho battery trials, Seoretary
Whitney said tho reports are not Very
favorablo as to tho lirst trial of tho
guns, but as yet no matter of great
moment has turned up. ''Tin trouble
to my mind is this, if two rounds of
her battery givo this result what wonld
a doaen do, nnd this iB whit wo »»
called upon to ascertain. She is meant
as a fighting ship and might he further
tested. She should have cruised at
sea sufficiently long to subject her to-
trial in all weather. Her battery
should be tested by actual firing until
her working characteristics are determined. For these purposes aboard
should be appoiutt 1 and the matter
settled at the earlies: day."
THE COKE STRIKE ENDED.
PiTTSBURq, Pa,, July 21.—Tin coke
strike just ended was one of the inopt
stubbornly contested battles ever
fought betweon capital and labor.'
Over eleven weeks the fight went on.
The amount of money lost by idleness
cannot be computed, but it reaches
millions. When the strike began four-
fifths of the 11,000 men in the region
had money of their own, but few nave
money enough now to take them out
of the districts if they wanted to go.
Operators will also suffer heavy losses.
The pumps have been kept running at
all tlie pits. Pit and yard masters,
superintendents and clerks, have been
drawing salaries, and mules getting fat
on oats and hay, that they did not
earn. At West Leisenrung, where the
Pinkerton men have been stationed
the expense has been over $1000 a day
since tho strike began; Besides thii
the ovens have become badly out of
repair and fully a third of them all
over the region will have to be overhauled before coal can be put into
them. Then, too, the coke trade hoi
fallen off and it will take time and
money to build it up. It is estimated
the actual expense to operators has '
been from (70,000 to 1100,000, while
the loss entire will foot up over a
million.

trade competition.
London, July 22.—The Marqois
of Salisbury replying to a deputation '
which called to urge tbe government
to take some action to protect British
trade from the effects of foreign competition, said it wss impossible to
speak too strongly of the injustice of
which the foreign bounty system in- ,,
dieted on British workmen. A European conference, he said, would soon
consider the matter, and in the meantime he could only say tbat there were
two ways for Englishmen to deal with
their assailants in this contest. It
reasoning failed, Englishmen might
return blows.

FrMarjr Everting, July tt,
The Panama Canal.
Wwhethev this"'gigantic undertaking will ever be completed or
not is a matter of much speculation
and doubt. The success of M. De
Lesseps in the Sues canal was such
as to fill thejublic niind with unlimited comirlence in his integrity
and his engineering ability, nnd
this has enabled him to float tho
Panama projcot in the face of difficulties whicli an ordinary uiuu
would have found it impossible to
surmount But the floating of the
scheme in the financial world is one
thing, and the completion of tbe
work is quite another. Where reports arc so conflicting it is not easy
to reach an intelligent conclusion,
but one can, scarcely doubt that the
project is now in a most unsatisfactory condition. It is unfortunate,
«», that muoh of the company's
stock is held by persons in moderate circumstances, who oannot afford
to lose their investments, and very
widespread distress will undoubtedly
follow the collapse of the company.
It is stated that the canal cannot be
completed within the time specified
in the agreement with the government of Central America, and in
that case the whole thing falls into
the government's hands. From whatever point one regards it, the Panama canal, begun with such a flourish of trumpets, and containing so
much promise of good to mankind,
seems an unfortunate venture that
is likely to end in disaster to its
proprietor and all whoso confidence
in him has led them to put their
money into it
Prompt Action Needed.
The other day we mentioned
some respects in which this city had
been excluded from fair treatment
by the pamphlets and other advertising devices of the 0. P. R. Since
then we have been informed that
persons coming in on Monday's
eastern express and intending to
proceed further west are often induced by what they hear on the
train to go on to Vancouver and
there remain till Tuesday, not knowing that a steamer leaves this city
for Victoria every Monday on the
arrival of the train. There is no
steamer from Vancouver on lion-
day, and the arrangements of the
railway company are that all passengers for points beyond the straits
arriving by Monday's train shall
take the steamer at Westminster
and thus avoid 'Unnecessary delay.
Instances 'have been reported to us
where passengers have been told
that the steamer running between
Westminster and Viotoria is unsea-
worthy and that they, had better go
to Vancouver-and remain till Tuesday, when they would find a much
better steamer. These reports, in
which it must be admitted there is
some truth, are having the effect of
diverting the current of travel and
injuring the; Fraser route. But this
thing will go on, we suppose, just
as long as the government permits
suoh steamers as the Rithet to take
the mail subsidy and allows the
buoys and the channel at the sand
heads to shift themselves about at
their own sweet will. In fact, as
things are now one could not look
for traffic liy this route. About one
half of our own citizens habitually
go round by Burrard Inlet to reach
Victoria, because they will not go
on the Rithet if they can help it.
If the representations of the board
of trade with respect to the condi
tion of the service between this city
and Victoria and tbe state of the
buoys do not bring a response within a few days, we suggest that a
public meeting should be called and
resolutions expressive of publio
opinion on these subjects passed
and forwarded to Ottawa. Everybody says the Fraser route is being
ruined by the carelessness of the
0. P. N. Oo. and the marine authorities, but what are they going to do
about iti Words are often harmless: let us have action. Surely
the people of Fraser River have had
experience, enough to teach them
the folly of expecting any company
to study their interests with aa
muoh earnestness as its own. The
time was when the people of the
royal city, and of the Fraser River
generally, stood by Oapt. living's
steamers when it cost them a good
deal of money to do so. But a
new pharaoh has arisen who knew
not Joseph.' Oapt William Irving's
successors are not-pursuing a policy
calculated to retain the confidence
he built up! they have two lines to
the mainland now, and it matters
nothing to them whether traffic goes
by the river or the inlet; and so
long as the people of Westminster
are content toaccept without vigorous protest the. wretched service
they are now receiving, so long will
the company;«raae to trouble themselves about the wants or the claims
of the route. Where- else oh this
broad continent can we find a similar acandarJ-* company earning an
$8,000 mali'ljrbsidy with a steamer
on whioh J^rp^ the people refuse to
risk their previous fives, and which

^SSJXitaXStKC. A OOOD FELLOW.
The History of ts Man Who Treated the
World Better Than It Deserved.
Dlihi't know Bodgers, did you—Abraham Bodgers, g. g. t., which means general good man? Well, I did, and I
helped bury him yesterday.
When I first knew Bodgers, he was a
young follow ot 18, and the title of
good fellow had already settled upon
him. If they wanted the old church
swept for Sunday, or the bell rung for
prayer-meeting, some one asked Bodgers-
to dolt. It any old hunker fell sick and
hankered for rabbit soup, Badgers was
asked to go out and hunt for the rabbit.
It any old woman wanted sassafras root
for herbs,Bodgers was the good fellow
who'd go to the fields and woods on
her errand.
No one ever thought ot offering him
money in payment for his time, and lt
is only his due to say that he wouldn't
have accepted it if thoy had. Ho was expected to pound down the nailheadB in
the sidewalks, replace broken planks,
have an eye on the bridge, paint the
echoolhouse stops, replace the broken
glass in the ohuroh ana be the guardian
of all bad boys, and no ono ever heard
him kick.
Later on, the old man Jackson fall
elek, and when watchers were required he expressed his desire to havo
Bodgers oome to the .bouse and stay.
Bodgers went, put in sixteen days and
nights of hard work, and when-the old
man died the widow feelingly exclaimed:
"Oh, Abraham, but you are a noble
young maul I can never, never repay
you I"
She never did—never even offered him
the value ot a pair ot stockings, although
ehe was lett $30,000.
Then Aunt Nancy Lee fell sick and
died and Bodgers hod Just begun his
day's work as a carpenter when ono ot
the Lee boys rode up with the news and
added:
" And the very last thing she said was
that you must be chief pall-bearer. Aunt
Nancy always loved you, and you must
oome."
Bodgers went, Aunt Nancy forgot to say
that he should be paid for his day's Work,
although she lelt $12,000 to the heathen,
and so Bodgers was out again.
He had scarcely settled down to work
when Bomo ono discovered that tho old
hand Are engine which had been stowed
away tor six years ought to bo put in
condition. A loading cltlzon 'suggested
to Bodgers to go ahead and fix the old
tub up, and his bill should be paid by
a subscription. Bodgers tinkered away
lor a week, and a leading grocer gavo
him a bar of soap, and a dry goods man
eamo down with a roll ot tape. Tho
effort to reward him died out with thut.
Bodgers lived just that sort of a life
untilhowas40yearsold, Heevenputoff

When he died he hadn't a dollar In the

KOBTOIAK HOSPITALITY,
Interesting   Customs   of a   Sliuplo and
GOod'heartcd People
In no -land 1b hospitality moro open-
handed and moro unaffected than in
Norway, and though these features are
naturally becoming blunted along the
beaten lines ot travel, tho gonuine goodness ot heart, lino "gentlemanly" feeling and entire abseuoo of thatsordiduoss
which is so often seen oven In primitive
regions, cannot fail to strike the unprejudiced observer. Nor is etlqnouo ignored by oven tho rudest of tho people.
Ih the olt'es tho stranger is apt to
mako many blunders. In tho country,
however, this is not less marked, though
perhaps thu visitor will bo less conscious of its presence.
One of ttro por'Ullurltles of tlio Norwegian farmer is that, when visiting a
frlcnd,he must Ignoro all tho preparations
made for his entertainment. Ho will
boo tlio coffee, rousted, and tho oups sot
out, and then, Just whon the good wife
Is ubout to offer him her hospitality, he
gets up, bids tho family good-by. and is
only persuaded to remain after some resistance.
Every cup must be filled to overflowing, otherwise tho host would bo thought
Btingy. When milk, brandy, or beer Is
offered, tho guest invariably begs that
it will not "bo wasted on him," and
then, alter emptying tho oup, declare*
tii'ttt " it is too much"—going through
the samo formalities, it may be, threo
or four times. ..
In tho farmhouses, or upland "sac-
tcrs," the gue.it is left to cat n!ono,
silver forks ami spoons being often substituted for tho carved woodou ones
used by the family, and a line whito
cloth for the bare board which serves
woll enough on ordinary occasions.
To a punctilious guest this may not
be a drawback, for at tho family table,
as Indeed, among tho peasants in Scandinavia everywhere, the different Individuals .dip their spoons into the same
dishes of " grod " and sour milk; but
for tiny ono desirous of studying a people a load of foreign prejudice is a
grievous burden to earr about.
When a child is born tlio wlfo of every
neighbor cooks a dish of " lloderyroil"
(porridgo made with cream Instead of
milk), and brings lt to tho convalescent,
there being a good doal of rivalry
among tho matrons to outdo each other
lu the quality and else of tho dish.
When any ono has taken food tn a
Scandinavian house ho shakes hands
with tho host and hostess in rising from
the tablo and says:
" Tak for mad" ("Thanks for food"),
to which they reply: "Veil bekommo"
(" May lt ogroo with you").
In many ports ot Scandinavia all the
guests shako hands .with each other and
repeat the hitter formula; and in Norway, at least, lt is tho fashion for a
guest to Call on tho hostess a few days
tier, and wheti'sho appears to gravely
say:
"Tak for Bldst" ("Thanks for last
tlmo "), great gravity ou this formal visit
being a mark of good breeding [Peoples of the World.
Mountain Sam's Dogs.
An old trapper and hunter, known as
" Mountain Sam," Is doing a land oflloe
business killing huge mountain snoop
for their heads and horns. Theso ho
ships io Now York to fill orders which he
is constantly receiving, and there thoy
aro mountcrl. ham's best oustoiuors are
wealthy Englishmen.
- For many years "Mountain Sam " has
burled himself In the most remoto recesses ot the Big Horn Mountains. Sam
rounds up the wild sheep with dogs.
His pack numbers twenty-five head,
and thoy are a pure cross of the bloodhound and bulldog. Mountain born and
bred, these noblo animals add to ths
strength and sagacity ot their blood
strains a marvellous endurance and activity. No snow depth, no roughness ot
trail, no steepness ot precipice, no loftiness of peak, no remoteness of locality
can stop ths mountain dog when on the
track of the mountain sheep.
The pack works in an organized way
when the trail ot a band ot sheep Is
struck. The dogs bleak Into little
bunches and wldu and careful circuits
are mode. The closely pressed sheep
are hurried toward a common centre,
and they will soon be bunched with
twenty-nvo stanch dogs, crests eroot and
tails wagging, moving about them In an
endless and eager circle.
The pack has been known to bunch
>50 head of sheep, and to hold their
.wktbhrand guard for over six hours
awaiting the coming of their master,
who haa been kept baok by the difficulties lying In his path.
It sometimes occurs that the dogs
brmg the game together on a spot that
Is utterly. Inaccessible to human feet,
Thon the huntor gives his dogs notice
of tho fact by a peculiar shrill and
piercing shout.
Tho pack at once dash Into the midst
ot tho sheep, seize and slay the largest,
and by dint at rolling, tumbling and falling from crag to urag, from declivity to
declivity, bring tho caroasses within
reach of their master.—[Denver Tribune,

Daniel Webster and Lord Brougham,
i Mr. Webster was an admirable racon-
toUr, aud someot his reminiscences ot
his visit to England were very entertaining.
Ono morning in London, afterabreak-
fast with Rogers, tbe banker-poet, ho
loft the house In company wltn tho celebrated Sydney Smith, and as they
passed the door of Lord Brougham
Smith proposed to call, to which Mr.
Webster assou tod.
On entering, Smith Introduced Mr.
Wobstor as " Mr. Clay." Now Mr. Clay
had not long before denounced Lord
Brougham In the United States Senate,
so, to uso Mr. Webster's words, "Lord
Brougham did not say a word to Mr.
Clay, nor did Mr, Clay to Lord Brougham." -
Smith and Webster Boon took their
leave, und as thoy were crossing St. James
Park tho former all at once became
silent and then asked:
"Did I not lntroduos you to Lord
Brougham as Mr. Clay?"
"Certainly you did," replied Webster.
No more Was said ou tho Bubjcot, but
Smith soon excused himself. That afternoon Mr. Wobstor found a card from
Lord Brougham Inscribed:
" For Mr. Webster," snd they became
lutliuoto friends.—[Boston Budget-

Moke Rot.—The San Franoisco
Journal of Commerce, in its issue of
14th inst., is good enough to give prominence to the resources and develop*
ment of British Columbia. It says,
among other things: "Victoria hns a
large and steadily increasing trade, us
also has Vancouver, Now Westminster,
and the now settlement ut Port
Moody." We should be glad to learn
more from our cotemporary respecting
this interesting '' new settlement at
Port Moodyl" Wu are afraid the
the writer is like a good many other
outsiders who undertone successfully
to advertise their lack of information.
. Fbesh Fish Trade.—Messrs. D. W.
Port & Co. have got their freezers in
operation and are now ready to freeze
fish. Hitherto the fish hnve not been
sufficiently plentiful to do more than
supply immediate demands. Thu firm
is shipping on an average over half a
ton per day of fresh fish tn tho cast.
These fish are packed in ice, and are
distributed over a large territory,going
ns far as New York. If the fish con*
tinue to come as plentiful as they
were last night, the freezers will take
the sorploi and will soon be filled.
The temperature in the freezing rooms
to-day wat 24, and it's a good place to
go when one wants to cool off.

The Aimtahok Goes Ox.—At tho
recent mm mercial union picnic at Port
Hope, iimsxd of the usual resolution
in favor of unrestricted reciprocity, an
amendment declaring that "Commercial union is our politics, and wo will
not vote for either individual or party
that does nut favor it," wus carried by
a unanimous staudiug vote. This is
the strongest stand which has been taken in favor of commercial union, und
it may mean a good deal. It is interesting to know that the Government
has begun to compile statistics ou tho
subject, and if tho farmers continue to
pledge themselves to vote only for commercial union it is not improbable that
Sir John Macdonald not Mr. Wiman
will soon head the commercial union
movement.— Montreal Witness.
About Architects. — Pooplo in
every walk of life are liable to bo sometimes subjected to criticism for things
that they are not altogether responsible for, and Architects say that thoy
form no exceptions to tlie rule. Aftor
having carefully planned a building in
accordance with their own best judgement they aro after compelled by the
changed views of tlie owner, with reference to expense or somo other matter,
to make ohanges by which not only
their own taste but their professional
pride is to some extent sacrificed. People should remember that it is not
usually by tho Architect alone but by
the Architect and tho ownor in consultation that tho building is planned
so that in criticising the building thoy
should not too hostily criticise tho Architect also, —iffcord and Guide. Tho
above extract is so true that I beg
of tho Editor of tho Columbian to
republish It J. Kennedy.

But there Is no reasnn, when this wearing, attenuating disease Is conquered by

usually the case. It is a peotless remedy
also for Constipation, Liver Complaint,
Kidney troubles, and roots out all impurities from the blood.

A little hoy abont four years old,
living in a New Jersey town, ran to
tho window ono evening lately during
a heavy thunderstorm. As he looked
out, long glittering lines of forked,
zigzag lightning ran ncrost the black
sky, then came a broad flash, lighting
up all tho west and northwest, "Oh,
mamma! mamma!" sobbed tho little
fellow, ''God's house is all on fire! Will
he be burned in it?" A few momenta
after, hearing the rain pouring in torrents, he ran to to her, crying exultantly: ''Mamma! mamma! God has
turned ou His hose. Now His house
won't burn."-rrZ/ar))e>-'a Magazine.
Jas. Shannon, Lcasltdale, writes: For
many years my wife was troubled with
chilblains, and cuuld get no relief until
about two years ago; she was then not
able to walk, and the pain was then so
excruciating that she could not sleep at
night. Your itgont was then on his regular trip, and she ashed him if ho could
cure her. He told her Dr. Thomas*
Kclectric Oil was a sure cure. She tried
it, and judge of her astonishment when
in a few days tho pain was all allayed
and the foot restored to its natural condition. It U also tho best remedy for
burns and bruises I ever used.
A strange story comos from Krasna,
in Russia, A man named Leslie, descendant of an Englishman, the family
of tho Lords Leslie, who settled in
Russia in the sixteenth century, lately
received notice that the elder brunch
of tho family had become extinct and
that he was the heir to a fortune of
£10,000,000 and a peorago.
Miss Mary Campbell, Elm, writes:—
"After taking four bottles of Northrop
k Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and
Dyspeptic Cure, I feel as if I wero a new
person. I had been troubled with Dyspepsia for a number of years, and tried
many remedies, but of no avail, until I
used this celebrated Dyspeptic Cure,"
For all impurities of the Blood, Sick
Headache, Liver and Kidney Complaints,
Costiveiicsa, etc., it Is the best medicine
known.
