Columbian
Friday Evening. Hepl. It. was.
The Tacoma Mill Company has at
last succumbed to the outside pressure and shut down. Erer since
the Ohinamen were driven out of
Tacoma that town has been in the
- hands of a mob, so to speak. Manufacturers, ship owneis and. snip
captains had no protection. Factories have been burned, Mews have
been forcibly taken out of vessels,
■hips have been tied up to the
wharves, the longshoremen refusing
to load them or allow anybody else
j to < pat: lumber into them. One
". strike-foUowed.auother in rapid succession, and finally the climax mm
capped' a few• days.since when, in
response to' a' tele-jra'm from the
Coast Seamen's Union of San Francisco, .all the work of loading vessels at Taooma was suspended.—
Seattle Post.
The Maharajah Duhlecp Sing is
reported to be exciting the rajahs
of the Punjaub against England
and in favor of Russia. .Somebody
is always doing something of this
kind, nnd it might as well be Sing'
as anybody'else. Sing has a very
handsome house, and a lot of about'
17,000 acid) surrounding it, in one
i of the best hunting and shooting
distriots of 'England; and he is also'
the lucky recipient of a pension of
8150,000 'a year from' the British
treasury, so that he is hardly likely
to conspire dangerously against the
author of his I remarkably well-buttered bread.' England always keeps
the lean and hungry Oassios of eastern India beyond the beed or desire
of conspiracy. Or, at least, she
always itriee to fatten them, Moreover, Russia doesn't want India;
she wants the control of the Mediterranean Sea. Givo her that, she
bid as lief that England ruled India as its native princes.—Chicago
Inter-Ocean.
It is hardly credible that the German Emperor should have advised
Prince Alexander to make his fanm-
r ble submission to tho Caar, without
first making sure that the submission would be effectual. It looks
mar* like a desperate attempt of
the Prince's own to placate his implacable enemy; an invertebrate
step which only invited the brutal
j answer, j returned. Whosoever is
responsible, the submission exhibited
a fatal degree of weakness; and no
wtontlr*r;,tbe Osar sekadawelcome
opportunity al.' Well to' intuit the
hated: Prince as to slap the face of
Europe. ■,. Whether. the smart of
' thu rebuff1 will provo unbearable by
Euroje is now the question.. The
sikiiition is perilous on all sides.
German);'! attitude on the aubject
is still ah onigma; bat Austria can
hardly submit tamely, to inch a
blunt and overbearing assertion of
Russian  predominance in the Bal-
, Inns: Turkey oannpt «<* ,with eauar
niniity a Russian provinco set up at
ithfjvaty door;I* Oonjita-ila-iiiple;
Roumania, Servia, aiid  the other
l Statu; of the Balkans, ought to
have somethmg to say about the
vanishing prospfiot of Balkan unity;
and Greece will certainly wim the
slightest excuse to* invade Thessaly
and Albania. Bhe missed her opportunity by hesitancy and trust
in the Power! the last time the pot
boiled over; but thii is a mistake
she 'will hot repeat! Uie will have if
■he can a fait accompli, instead of a
claim,' to present to the next conference j on' Balkan affairs. :. And
England?    England's action must
' depend altogether on thai' of Bis-
m»rk, who, however, is playing his
own hand. England has a definite
policy;! but she is; not bound alone
to carry the whole of eastern Europe
' on' her ateuldei: the Danube is a
German river, and tho Danube it is
that is threatened byRuBi»ii aggression in the Balkans; therefore let
the German powers see to it.   Eng-
. land can protect her own peculiar
interests fs far; as tjiey may be affected by' anytlireatened Bhahge in
tlie > ownership of Constantinople;
and to thii end mainly, if the German, poweri step out of Russia's
path through European Turkoy to
the Bosphorus her diplomacy should
be directed. To prevent Russia
tnm making Alia Minor a vautage-
a-KMmd tij-AeClonstantinople'hould
be Ehgland's object;'iM. hotever,,
foi; the sake of Constantinople, but
because, if Russian influence ihould
prevail in .Alia Minor, that would
in itself' be a serious menace td
England's interests in the far East.

Friday Evening, Sept. II. usu.
A Cheeky Proposal.
In our issue ot yesterday we
culled attention to some of the unfair and misleading statements made
by tlio Victorin Colonist in reference to Fraser River and the city
of New Westminster. In the Colonist of Wednesday we find an nrticlo on "Our Maritime Interests" in
which more misleading statements
are made and a conclusion arrived
at against which we must offer a
most emphatioal protest. The article begins with a reference to the
proposed establishment of a telegraph station on the south-west corner of Vancouver Island so that
Victoria tugs might be informed of
the arrival of ships in lioyal Ronds.
It then proceeds to point out the
disadvantages under whioh British
Columbia tugs labor, and illustrates
by quoting the tea ship Flora P.
Stafford. This ship, it says, entered Port Augelos and telegraphed
to Victoria for a tug. The Alexander responded, but an American
tug reached the ship first and
whisked her off to Port Moody.
"The tug passed the Burrard Inlet
custom house with supreme unconcern," says our cotemporary, "and
getting a friendly New Westminster customs officer to clear her at
Port Moody, she loft again." After
stating that a Britisli tug would not
be allowed to do such a thing in
American waters, our cotemporary
concludes as follows: "In British
Oolumbia, however, the case is different. Victoria, New Westminster, Burrard Inlet and Nanaimo
are all ports of entry; and the only
way, so far as we see. to obviate
what is a decided hardship would be
to create Victoria (with the exception of that on the Stickeen River
and that of Port Simpson) the sole
port of ontry for British Columbia,
it boing in the interest of trade and
commerce that it should be done."
Now, there can be no objection to
the extension of the telegraph system to the southwest coast of Vancouver Island for the purpose indicated, and we cordially approve of
tliis being done. If anything else
within reason can be done to give
our tugs every possible chance to secure the towing trade, it will also
meet with our hearty support. But
when our Victoria cotemporary proposes to abolish the ports of entry
everywhere throughout the province
except at Victoria, in the interest
of the Victoria tugs, he makes a
proposal that will be resisted by all
who wish to preserve the commercial facilities now in existence, or
who care for the prosperity and
development of our maritime affairs.
It is not true that the abolition of
the other ports of entry would be
"in thc interest of trade and commerce." It might be in the interest of Victoria to compel all goods
and vessels to be entered thero, but
Victoria's interests and those of the
rest of the province are not always
identical. The proposal is oneof
the most extraordinary we over
heard from a public journalist, and
furnishes additional proof, if proof
were needed, of the fact that the
Colonist is "intensely sectional" in
its views, and would not hesitate
to sacrifice the rest of the province
to its local ambition. According to
our customs regulations the American tug had a perfect right to take
the Stafford to Port Moody, and the
"friendly" officer at this port had a
a perfect right to give her a clearance there. Tlie "port of Burrard
Inlet" comprises the whole inlet,
and foreign vessels may be cleared
from any part of it. For a long
time a certain clique in Victoria,
aided by the Colonist, endeavored to
bring about a consolidation of the
various provincial pilotage authorities into ono board to be located at
Victoria. But the proposal, being
purely sectional and selfish, was
vigorously opposed by New Westminster, Burrard Inlet and Nanaimo, and it failed. This new sohemo
of centralization will fail also. The
customs authorities we are sure
would not listen for a moment to
anything so ridiculous, In the
early days, when the gold excitement began on Fraser River, a gun
boat was stationed at the river
mouth to prevent people coming
into the colony without payment of
1)5 per head. This seems to be just
the sort of arrangement that would
suit onr cotemporary of the Colonist. If he could have, a gun boat
stationed in the Straits of Juan de
Fuca and prevent all vessels and all
traffic from reaching any other part
of the province without first entering and paying tribute at Victoria,
he would be happy. But the days
are past when anything of this sort
will be tolerated in British Columbia, and our "intensely sectional"
friend may as well save bis breath
for some useful and hopeful scheme.

The Third Tba-Ship.—Tlie'thi'rd
cargo of tea for tho C.P.R. arrived at
Port Moody nt 0 o'clock last night on
tlie ship Zoroya.' The cargo consisted
of 8207 pkgs. tea and' curios from Yokohama direct, which port the ship
left 47 days ago. She encountered
much calm weather and fog. Tho
Zoroya is a small ship of 385 tons,
built of wood, and is owned in New
South Wales. She sailed right up into
English Bay, and there got a tug which
took her to Port Moody. The captain
declares tliat ho would have sailed
clear up to Port Moody if the wind
had not been against him. The ship
began discharging this morning. Mr.
Peter Grant, of the customs department at this city, met tlie ship on her
arrival at the wharf.

Railway Matters.—The O. P. R.
is making haste slowly with the ballasting of the branoh line. It was reported that a steam shovel was to be at
work last Monday, but Mr. Green, C.
E., who was out over tho road yesterday, informs our reporter that it, is
not in operation yet. About one-third
of the road is now ballasted. As there
is yet somo probability of tho steam
shovel, being used, work on the remaining two-thirds may be pushed forward more expeditiously. The character of the ballasting so far is said to
be first class. The wharf to be built
In thb city, it is supposed, will shortly bo commenced, and the passenger

From Metlakahtla.—Mr. J. 0.
Hughes returned yesterday from
Metlakahtla, where he went some
weeks sgo as Indian sgent. He will
remain here about two weeks. The
Indians on I the I northwest coast are
said to be in a very unsettled and dis-.
contented condition. They have for
some years claimed that all the land in
that region belongs to them, and they
will neither go on to the reserves nor
permit white men to appropriate the-
hnd. For some time Mr. S. P. Tuok,
C. E., has been endeavoring to lay
out a large reserve, 5 by 20 miles, but
the Indians have interposed so many
hindrances in the way of this work
that no progress can he made. It ia
hot possible to tell what will be the
result. Although there has beon no
conflict, it is quite .evident that matters cannot long remain in their present condition. It is asserted that the
attitued.of th. Indians is the result of
injudicious teaching on tho part of
some white merf.       '■ ?*

RECIPROCAL TRADE WITH THE NORTHWEST.
Mr. John Hendry, Manager of the
Royal City Planing Mills *>f this city,
returned a few days ago froni a bufii-
ness trip to the east. One of the
objects of Mr. Hendry's trip Was to
mako arrangements if possible for the
shipment of lumber to points east of
-tlie mountains. It has frequently been
said that east of th. Rooky Mountains
Britisli Columbia would find anexten-
sive lumber market aa soon as tho
C. P. R. wss ready for business. Mr.
Hendry succeeded in obtaining such
rates as. will enable his oompany to
ship sis' far task as Calgary, but unless
a better rate can be had it will not be
possible to do muoh bide beyond that
point. Very probably the rates will
be so revised, however, ob to permit
an extension of the market. As a
result of the negotiations a carload of
shingles was shipped for (Wgaryyes-
terday, going, by scow to. Port Hammond junction, and arrangements havo
been mode' for the shipment of a considerable quantity of lumber to tho
•sine place. The first shipment will
be ready as soon as the branch line is
sufficiently ballasted to permit the running Qf trains, which will be, it is ex-
peotedi i early next *».k. . Whilo in
Moiiifsf Mr. Hendiy took an order
Iroiri Sir George Stephen for1 about
40,000 feet of British Columliia cedar
to be shipped to. Montreal for .Sir
George's own use. There is a good
deal of building goiujjj on in and about
CJtlgary, and Mr. ^Hendry think* tho
demand for .the better qualities of
lumber and for sash, doors, and general
house furnishings will be quite largo.
Al - soon as tho branch is prepared to
do business he expects his company to
ship on an average about two car loads
aday. Mr. Hendry is of opinion that
a larger reciprocal trado than people
-generally suppose will spring up between British Columbia and th. Hor thwart over theO.PI'R. The people
across the mountains will take our
lumber, and fruit and fish, and in ex-.
ohnngX thoy will send ut farm and
dairy produce. .Mr, Hendry speaks
vory highly of the character of tho
0. P. R.. and tho excellence of its
equipment' and accommodation. It
.wa. quite beyond liis expectations, and
.most ertditable to the company. For
aome timo past tho lt. C. P. M. Co.
has been sending largo quantities of
'uinher oyer the 0,,?.,R.,to Kam-
loops, whore thoro ios boon a brisk
demand, We hope these new markets
will grow'until our mills will be kept

when he arrives in Dublin to-morrow to
assume the office of lord-lieutenant. "He
bears Castlereagle's hated name," Bays

to assassinate Bratinino has produced
great excitement among the people.
Crowds surrounded the building occupied;

rived In the city this morning on twelve
Bpecial cars, over the Atchison,' Topeka
and Santa Fe railway, in charge of Col.
J. F. Wade, Tenth U. S. cavalry, commanding a company of 85 guards. These
Indians, though not actively engaged in
Geronimo's campaign, were nevertheless
suspected of furnishing the hostiles with
provisions and ammunition, and the
government thought it best to remove
them from their reservation. They will
proceed from here direct to Fort Marion,
near JacksoavUle, Fla. 'The; will be
'given a reservation somewhere ih that

railway station to see real live Indians,

The Niagara Whirlpool. — Tlio
whirlpool, well called "tho angriest
bit of wator in the world," in threo
miles below tlie great Falls of Niagara. At this point the river, bending toward the Canada side, is contracted to a width of about two hundred and twenty feet. Tlie waters rush
violently into a deep depression in tlio
steep cliff that rises on the Canada
side, then tbey emerge, turning back
almost at a right angle, to tlie American sido. The spot seems to bo a part
of the bed of an ancient channel.
Here the angry waters boil and churn
with n fierceness almost incredible.
The waves are never at rest. Thoy
toss and whirl and toy witli the
heaviest timber. It makes one dizzy
to look at the fierce tumult of tho
waves. The great maelstrom covers
a space about one-quarter of a mile
square. Ita depthB are enormous and
unknown. One thousand foet of cord
was found too short to roach the
bottom. The whirlpool is in the form
of a large circle. Tho average force
of the water moving through the
canyon above is 185,000 feet square.
Tliis compact mass of water moves
with incredible swiftness, entering the
whirlpool on une side, spinning round
like a top and' then passing madly on.

White Bronze Monuments.—White
Bronze is a comparatively new substance,
and has come into large use, rapidly, for
speoial purposes in this country. It has
been found to bo so well adapted for statuary and monuments, that companies
have been for some time established at
Bridgeport, Conn., Detroit, Mich., Des
Moines, Iowa, and St. Thomas, Canada,
who are making monuments of all kinds
and, styles. From experiments mode by
these communes, it has been found that
the material will stand exposure for an
indefinite period—it iB practically indestructible. White Bronze being* non-
corrosive and unchangeable, it is stated
to be equal to gold, silver or platinum,
and superior to copper or antique bronze,
which throws off a verdigris. The monuments are east from refined zinc, and aro
given their sparkling appearance by the
sand blast, sand being blown against tbe
work under a high pressure of steam,
whioh cuts the surface, but does not adhere to It. A thin film of oxide which
forms on this bronze is indistructible by
the elements; it cannot be dissolved by
water, and air cannot penetrate it, although the film is bo thin as to be immeasurable. No corrosion, it is affirmed,
can take place. —Bonton Journal of Commerce, Chas. J. Robson, New Westminster, is agent for the White Bronze

Surface Indications
What a miner would very properly term
"surface Indications" of what is beneath,
aro tho Pimples, Sties, Bore Byes,
Bolls, and Cutaneous Eruptions with
which peoplo aro annoyed in spring and
early* summer. Tho effete matter accumulated during tho winter months, now
makes Its presenco felt, through Nature's
endeavors to expel It from iho system.
While it remains, it is apoisou that festers
in tho Mood and mny develop Into Scrofula. This condition causes derangement
of the digest ivo and assimilatory organs.
with a feeling of enervation, languor, and
wearluoHH—often lightly spoken of as "only
soring fever," These are evidences that
Nuturo is not able, unaided, to throw off
the corrupt atoms which weaken tho vital
forces. To regain health, Nature must ho
aided by a thorough blood-purifying medicine; and nothing else la so effective as
Ayer's Sarsaparilla,
which Is sufficiently powerful to expel
from tho svstera even tae taint of Hereditary Scrofula.
The medical profession Indorse Ayxr'h
Sarsaparilla, and many attestations of
tho cures effected by it come from all parts
of the world. It fs. in the language of
tlio Hon. Francis Jewctt, ex-State Senator of Massachusetts and ex-Mayor of
Lowell, "tho only preparation thut does

The Confederation Lift.
Ihe annual report of this solidly pros-
Jierpus Canadian institution will be found
n another column. The facts revealed
in the accounts and the Directors' report
thoroughly justify the ecominms which
the shareholders present bestowed upon
the management. Thanks to the resolute
manner in which the Company has declined to embark upon extravagant
methods of procuring business, the working expenses of the company bear to the
total income thc very small ratio of between 17 and 18 per eent. A point attesting the soundness of the finances of
the Company is the fact that the interest
income is sufficient to pay the death
claims- -which in a company of the age of
the Confederation Life is something to be
proud of. The nss ts and liabilities are
Bet forth in minute detail, and the tables
show that, after -flaking allowance for all
possible contingencies and providing for
every debt, thero is a surplus of $282,199
over liabilities and capital combined.
The increase in the assets in the last year
was 3260,390. So much for what can be
done by rigid adherence to what the
President defined as the true policy of
the Company, viz:*—"To keep its balance
sheet right and avoid unnecessary, unwise, or extravagant expenditure for the
sake merely of increasing new business."

Eons, Sopt IG.—Cardinal Carmine
Geromir is dead. Ho was born at
Subiaoo, Feb. 15,1810, and was made
cardinal Nov. 10, 1884.
Cardinal Jncobini, pontiGcial secretary of state, is seriously ill.
London, Sept. 16.—Justin McCarthy sailed for Now York to-day.
London, Sept. 10.—The Doncastor
race for the Portland plate for 3-year-
olds and upwards was won by the
duke of Portland's filly Modworn; H.
Huiigcrfnrd's oolt Brighton second,
und H. Chaplin's colt Harmallan
third.
Buffalo, N. Y., Sept. 16.—The list
of killed iu the Nickel-Plate railway
collision, which was further swelled to
10 by tho finding of threo additional
bodies mangled beyond recognition, is
now supposed to bo complete.
Auousta, Ga., Sept. 16.— Hy
Barnes, colored, was lynched to-day
at Milton for outraging a white lady.
Masked men-took him from a train
and riddled him with bullets.
London, Sept. 16.— Spotting circles are greatly excitod over the
sweepstakes of £1,000 each to be run
for the last day of tho Loughton meet-
ing,,ut Newmarket, Oct. 29, between
the duke nf Westminster's 3-year-old
colt Ormonde, Lord Hastings' 4-yew-
old oolt Milton, P; T. Barclay's aged
hrirse Bendigo, and R. Pecks Syear-
old colt Tho Bard. Distance, 1.' miles.
It is oxpected the raco wilt create the
greatest sensation on record. Ormonde is considered the best horse
produced this century, whilo the othor
three also have splendid records. Betting will probably be enormous. The
i public wilt make Ormonde tho favor-
' ite. as he possesses an unbeaten record.
Sun a, Sept. 10.—In the solsmiuje
to-day it Was resolved, after much opposition, to send a telegram to the
czar saying that the Bulgarians would
pray to Almighty God to grant him
a long and happy life, aiid laying at
the czar's feet the devotion and fidelity
of the Bulgarian people. The hope is
also expressed that friendly . relations,
between Bulgaria and Russia will bo
resumed, and that the czar will defend Bulgarians in their aspirations
for union and independence. After a
hosted discussiou, the expression "defend Bulgarians" was substituted for
" protect Bulgarians," as originally
drafted.
Detroit, Sept. 16.—A tetrlble
windstorm passed over southeastern
Michigan, of which .meagre reports,
havo been received as yot. It extended over a large extent of territory.
Howell reports a hurricane six miles
wido and coming from the east which
laid low many buildings. In the eastern part of that city John Smith's

,. wreaked or blown away while cattle
were left uninjured ou the Bites of
buildings. Many trees woro blown
down. The storm is the severest ever
suffered at Howell. Flat Rock .reports:
the storm as having' divided', going
north and south, and but little damage done in that town. From, Adrian
come similar reports. Heavy damage
is reported from the country, but the
wires are down and working badly,
and no definite report carl be given.
Rookawav Beach, L. I., Sopt. 16.
—Jimmy Carroll of New York and
Dick Colyer of Philadelphia fought
with small gloves to a finish, Queens-
berry rules, this nfternoon. Carroll
won by knocking Colyer out in the
22nd round.
' Oinr or Mexico, Sept. 16.—In his
annual messsge to congress, read on
the assembling of that body to-day,
President Diaz said Mexico's relations
with foreign governments had continued, generally, on terms of friendship
and good understanding. There had,
however, recently occurred an incident
whieh threatened to destroy the harmony and cordiality existing bttween
this republic and its northern neighbor. A case of small importance in
itself, it excited in an unexpected
manner, and owing to aconjunotion of
circumstances, passions on either side
of the Rio Grande. " I refer," continues the message, " to tho matter of
the American journalist, which has
alteady come to your knowledge by'
publication made in the Diario Official. Wo must congratulate ourselves
thtt in such emergency the dignity of
tlia govemment and good namo of the
country could he saved without arous-
' Ing a conflict, thanks to' the prudent
and strictly legal conduot of the court
authorities of the state of Chihuahua,
as well as to the good sense of our own
people' | and tho government of the
United States, whieh when better informed did not insist on a demand
which gave rise to the transient difti-
j. culty. Texas papers have alluded to
ether eases of alleged outrage on citizens of that country by officials of our
own. In their eagerness to accumulate charges against Mexico they have
referred mistakenly to an individual
inamed Francisco Rosures, the author
. J Jot various. orimes committed on our
territory. It will suffico to observe
that Rasures was of Mexican nationality, and was voluntarily delivered by
Tsxan authorities tr a force of the state
of Cohahuta, without any previous demand for his extradition, so that in
his'esse it will be ioen that as regards
rd the supposed citiznnship of the United
' Stales, there is nt' oocasian for controversy between tha two governments."

The Dead Man's Money.
"Tell rjrou a story, ino boy 1" mused
a Clark streot gambler to a reporter;
"well, I don't mind if I do. I've boon
carrying ono around in my head this
twenty years, and I guess it won't
harm anybody if I tell it to you. It
was away back in tho early 60's, whon
mo nnd Cy Merritt were dealing faro
in Baltimore. , It wob in the fall of
tho year, too, by tlio way, for I re-
membor wo liad just rigged up a stovo
by tho roulette whool. One night,
whon tho play was light and thore was
nobody in the house but mo nnd Cy, a
man opened the dour, sat down at tho
faro table and bought fivo stacks of
chips. He was a young follow, this
man was. He hut a light mustache,
blue eyes, and a face as white as n case
sheot. Cy did- the dealing and I wont
up into tho lookout chair. The deal
camo our way all thruugh, and the fellow lost his chips in no time. But ho
was a dandy, though. Ho was betting
all over the layout, and if ho had over
called the turn he'd knocked us silly.
I saw that the game was going to bo a
heavy one, so I just locked tlie door,
put on an old straw hat and watched
the bets. The fellow novor said a
word more'n*. to call for chips. He
never took his eyes off tlio table,
cither. Along about midnight ine and
Cy got hungry, and we usked tho follow if he'd stop long enough to get
something to eat. He said he wouldn't
and so the ploy went on. Nearly
every bet lie made Cy picked up. The
follow seemed strangely unlucky, but
he never beofed. Never a word came
out of his head. He just set there and
bet and lost till I got sick. About
daylight tlie fellow got down to his
last hundred. Ho blew it sir in {pr
chipB. He slapped 810 on the queon
to lose and another sawbuck on the
ace to win. He whipsawed its, and
then Cy said ho waa hungry and we'd
better go and get something to ent.
The fellow said that he wouldn't have
anything of the kind. Mo and Cy
were about ready to fall out of our
chairs from hunger, but tho player
seemed to be as fresh as a lark. Every
onco in n while, he'd take a drink of
whiskey, but that's all.
"From tho moment he whipsawed
us he began tu win just as fast as he
had lost during the night. Ho was
just making Cy and the money box
swoat when I exchanged places with
my partner and began to fix the cards
in tiio' eardine box for the next deal.
The stranger hod hiB bete all made
when I tapped tho box for luck. But
that was oil tlio good it did me. The
follow called tho turn from start to
finish, and hauled in enough chips to
make him even. Me and Cy wore
getting a littlo uneasy and faint, but
the stranger waa as fresh us a daisy.
Wo kept on playing until away in the
afternoon, with luok dond agin the
hank. It had boon over twenty-four
hours sinco we'd eaten a mouthful of
anything, but tho fellow still insisted
on playing, At 6 o'clock he was
$2500 winner, and showed no sighs of
quitting.
"Finnlly I got so tired tliat I could
not watch tho beta any longer. I got
up and walked around tho room, while
Cy bogau to deal. From that miuuto
tlie follow began to lose, and at midnight ho was down to liis last hundred.
1 remember just how he lookod then,
though its twenty years ago. His
faco looked liko marble, his great bluo
eyes glittering-with a strange light.
Ho liad all of his chips in his left
hand, While with his right ho stroked
his long, Bilk-liko .mustache. I was
looking over-'his shoulder when-he
made his last bet. He played the
Samo old cards again—tho queen to
lose and the ace to win. Then ho
leaned forward and watched Cy pull
the cards.- I could almost hear the
stranger's heart thump when Cy began
to uncover the ace of diamonds; and
when ho unveiled the queeii of hearts
1 saw tlio player's fingers twitch nervously. A strange cry escaped from
his lips, and thon he fell backward
upon the floor—dead.
"I will not tell you all that happened from that time until the closo of
the coroner's inquest, for it's rather
unpleasant to mo. But this muoh I
will tell you: when they searched.the
fellow's clothes they found nothing
but this letter, which bore no date:
" 'My D.uilimj Henky.—Hold onto
tho money you have been entrusted
with. You know your weakness, and
just think what would become of the
children niiS I, Bhould anything hnp-
penyou. Lucy.'
"Ever since that day I have been
trying to iind out whu Henry was. Cy
has boon looking for Lucy, but neither
of us has been successful. Do you
know it hu always been my opinion
that Henry was sent to Baltimore to
buy goods, and that when lie realized
he had lost his employer's money the
shock was too much fur him. Lucy
was liis wife; me buy, and I often wonder if she hoa learned nf his strange
death,"
It Might be Done.
Head of the liouso—Jane, a man
came in to-day and made me buy a box
of "Rough on Rats."
Wife—Mercy, John, we haven't got
a rat in the house.
Head of the house—Well; can't we
get some I—Life.

Alpine Giacibiis.—According to
Prof. Heim of Zurich, the total num
ber of glaciers in the Alps iB 1,155, of
whioh 249 liavo a length of more tlian
7,500 motors. Of this number the
French Alps contain 144, those of
Italy 78, of Switzerland 471, and of
Austria 462. The total superficial
area of these glaciers is between 3,000
and 4,000 square kilometers, those of
Switzerland amounting to 1,830 kilo
meters. The greatest length is reached
by the Alotsch glacier, which is twenty-four kilometers long. As to thickness, Agassiz, when measuring a cre-
vasso in tho Aar glacier, did hot reach
the bottom at 200 meters, and ho calculated tlio depth of tho bed of ico at
a certain point of this {•laoiet' nt 400
meters.
