What tn Eat and Drink.
It was in a Park Row restaurant,
ono of the hottest days of last week.
A perspiring black waiter ciiinc
bustling in from tbe noxt room.
"Po'kimd beans! Wliar's tbo gout
as wanted po'k and benns I" A feeling of faiutness and qualmishness
passod over tlio people seated at the
table; and as many of thorn us had
energy enough left turned languidly
to see who the misguided Boston-
ian might be that insisted on having his favorite dish even with the
thermometer in the nineties. The
man that ordered that plate of pork
and beans is a fair sample—not, lot
us hope, of all Bostonians, but of a
large class of people who never
seem to think of adapting their diet
to tbe climate. Some men will eat
corned-beef and cabbage in July, if
they can get it, and finish oft' with
a piece of mince pie, and perhaps
a glass of brandy. How such people manage to live as long as they
do is a marvel. It only shows what
a marvellously strong mechanism
the human stomach some times is.
The ordinary human being must
consult the welfare of his digestive
apparatus, if ho wishes to keep it
in good order. Generally, the indications of Nature point out the safe
way. There is a natural craving in
healthy stomachs, at this time of
tho year, for fruits and vegetables,
and un instinctive aversion to
"strong" food, especially such as is
greatly or iu any way rich in fatty
constituents. But some people get
into such cast iron habits of eating
that they would go on devouring
tho same dishes ull the year round
if it were possible. Those who work
iu hot weather require, of course,
some food that is nourishing and
strengthening—food that has nitrogenous elements, like lean meat, or
albuminous, like eggs, or starchy,
like hominy, and rice and peas and
beans. Borne fat is not injurious,
and may even be necessatry' LUt'
there is enough of the fatty matter
in milk (real milk, of course), and
in butter and in other ordinary articles of consumption, to supply in-

Poetland, Me., Aug. 19.—A letter
received a few (lays ago by Rev. Father
Healy, from his brother Oapt. Healy of
tho revenue steamer Bear, announced
that he had beached his vessel, constructed a copperdam, found a leak,
placed copper and gone on his northern voyage. The rumor of the loss of
the Bear is therefore contradicted by
the captain's report.
SERIOUS ACCIDENT TO A STEAMER,
Hoboken, N.J., Aug. 19.—The new
North German Lloyd str. Trave from
Bremen met with a serious accident
this morning while making her pier at
this oity. There was a tug alongside
the large ship when suddenly her boom
swung around and crushed into the
lower portion of the pier tearing away
tho entire roof, a part of the shed upon
tho bow of the ship striking sovoral of
the steerage passengers and two or
three of the crew. A number of the
passengers had their head, out open
and are believed to be fatally injured.
A panic ensued on board the ship snd
the officers had great difficulty in restoring order. The Trave carried
two hundred cabin and nine hundred
steerage passengers. Soon after the
acoident a large crowd gathered
and surrounded the dock. Great ex-
oitoment prevailed. The names of the
injured pe: o is could not be ascer
tainod. Several women fainted when
the crash oceurred. Oapt. Willingrod
of the Trave attributes the accident
solely to the strong current,

without taking fat meat.   Tlio principal waste of the body in hot weather is in perspiration.    The amount
of moisture that exudes through the
pores of the skin is {marvellous, and
it is easy to see that this wasto must
be met by taking inwardly what
will make it good. Now, most fruits
and vegetables, when analyzed,  are
sure to consist mainly of water, and
they supply, better than nny thin;;
else, the moisture that is needed.
'Che acid of fruits, too, is a wholesome corrective of the liver, and
their  well-known aperient quality
is another virtue.   A man might
very well subsist in the Summer entirely on bread, milk and fruit, the
bread and milk supplying the starchy
and nitrogenous and fatty elements
necessary, and the fruit the extra
moisture and the needed acid.   The
fact that so muoh moisture passes
through the pores of tho skin suggests another point that it is very
essential to bear in mind, at this
time of tho year especially.   It is
evident that if the pores are to per
form their duty of drainage throughly and ollectively they must ho kopt
open.    Frequent bathing and rubbing of the skin is therefore an absolute necessity,   The crowds that
infest  all   bar-rooms   and   collect
around all soda fountains, aro sufficient evidence that men desire cooling drinks.   The frequent applications of many of these customers
suggest, also, that tho| drinks are
not cooling for any length of time.
The truth is that most so-called cooling drinks are a delusion and a snare.
If they have any "rum" in them,
they are sure to do more  heating
than cooling.   Differ as people may
about alcohol and its poisonous prop-
eatics, it is certain that it heats the
blood, and especially has a tendency
to affect the head,   Tlio more cocktails or "sours," or gin and   seltiers
that a man imbibes, tho hotter nnd
thirstier he gets.    Even beer, although the bitter tasto of it is more
satisfying to the thirst, is aot cooling.   The i to 8 per cent, of alcohol
in it is more than enough to produce
heat and effect the head. Very cold
iced "soft drinks," too, are .uot satisfactory.   They chill the stomach
violently, and may produce a harmful shock.   The same is true of ice-
water.   Water that is cool is far
more satisfying and  more thirst-
quonohing than that which  is ice-
cold. To sum up, then, if you want
to be healthy in Summer, end as
comfortable as possible:    1.  Don't
drink anything alcoholic;  2.  Don't
take ice-wator and iced drinks ia
profusion; 3. Don't cat fat,  greasy
or rich food; 4. Do keep clean; 8. Do
eat plenty of vegetables and fruit;
6, Do, if you new) much nourishing I
and consisted of 4 life-boats and pinnacles. These were launehed and
stocked with provisions, The flames
spread with fierceness and the efforts
to quench them were futile. At 8 a.m.
the passengers were marshalled on
deck preparing the boat. Many were
weakening but on the whole they were
quiet and orderly. The family groups
presented a sight pitiful to see, as they
huddled in fear and trembling. There
was a heavy sea running and it was
with difficulty the boats were kept from
being smashed. The crew worked
splendidly and  the passengers were
Saced in a comparatively short time,
ow the boats floated with their loads
is a mystery. As the last boat was
putting off several passengers and crew
were seen aft, they had been overlooked and were screaming to the
boats to return. They were subsequently bravely rescued half dead from
smoke and heat. The steamer wus
worth 8500,00. The insurance is not
known. Her cargo was principally
cotton, lard and oil. The vessel was
used for firstelass travel. She had
made 114 voyages. Oapt. Land hai
been in ths service of the line for 25
yean, and is considered one of the
most careful transatlantic captains.
No one here hss an idea as to how the
fire broke out.

by the appearance of deeply colored

A NOVEL SUICIDE.
New York, Aug. 20.—A disgusting
stench has titled the tenement at St.
Charles st. for the past few days, and
yestorday it grew so bad that Mrs.
Franklin, the housekeeper, notified
the police. She believed the smell
came from a pile of gurbago in room,
on the 2nd floor, occupied by Mrs.
Helving Payne and her daughter
Anna. On Monday last the woman
had been Been closing up the shutters
and it was thought they had gone into '
the country. A report to the ptlioe
brought no response, and this morning
the stenoh had grown so vile that Mr.
Hamman, the owner of tbe house,
decided to investigate. He got out on '
the fire-escape and peeped through '
the shutters into the women's room.
He saw both women lying dead In the
bed, which wu bespattered witt blood.
Maggots crawled over the sheet. Horror-struck, he rushed for the police,
and a locksmith was procured, who
burst open the door. Disinfectants
were spread about and then an inspection was made. The women had been
lying dead since Monday. A nuor
and empty laudanum bottle were ou
a chair beside the bed. Half stupefied by the poison, and probably insensible to pain, the women had cut
the arteries at the elbows and ankles
and bled to death, locked ih each
other's arms. Death had unloosened
their grip, and they lay side by side
facing eaoh other when found. A
latter was found on the table, which
showed they had carefully considered
the plan of suicide and decided to die
together. The envelope containing it
was so soaked with blood that the address was almost illegible. The police
made it to be Miss H. A. Weed, 12
West 12th st. Miss Weed is a daughter of the late Thurlow Weed, and the
Paynes were known to be old friends
of the Weed family. The letter said:

London, Aug. 20.—In the letters of
Stanley written from Oambuya, near
the rapid, of the Arawimi, June 19th,
the explorer says: Tho natives had
evacuated the place upon the arrival
of the expedition, owing to fright produced by the vigorous blowing of the
steamboat whistle, but returned afterward evincing a a very amicable disposition and promised to supply the
expedition with provisions. They informed Stanley there were other rapids
higher up and more difficult of navigation, and that further progress by the
river would be impossible.
eclipse observations.
London, Aug. 20. —An eclipse of the
sun yesterday was observed for two
minutes st sunrise at Dartmoor tnd
Tonquay. The sky was obscured by
clouds at Paris and Vienna. At the
latter place thousands were waiting to
make observations. Prof. Vcgel, of
the Belgium expedition, stationed at
Jurgewits, on tke Volga, telegraphs
thst the sky wu over cut but that the'
solar protuberances snd chromosphere
were observed although the corolla
wu invisible. Russian observers were

here yesterday owing to the cloudy
condition of the sky. At Kiln tha
sun was obscured, but an aged professor named Mendilietf, made a balloon ascension alone so u to get above
the clouds and take an observation.
As there had been a hitch in tht filling uf the balloon there wu considerable doubt as to its ability to carry tha

lt is reported thnt Mr, E. Crow
Baker, M. Pi, has been notified by
the Dominion government that permission will be refused any other or
competing line in the territory covered by the Canadian Pacific telegraph service. ' Consequently no
more cables can be landed from the
American side of the straits. All
the same,; a campany is being organized to lay a cable across the straits
to Port Angeles from this province.
Never will our commercial interests
submit to be side-tracked on one line
of telegraph. We want and must
have competition here, the same as
we enjoy in shipping both by land
and water. Trade and commerce
cannot be interfered with thus
ruthlessly. The laying of this cable
is but a question of a few months
nt the furthest.—Vic. Times.
An Effective Betori.
A very decided change is observable in tlie tone of many American newspapers respecting the Atlantic fishery troubles. Last year
very few of these papers seemed
able to discuss the question in any
spirit of fairness. They pretended
to believe that the whole responsibility of the misunderstanding
rested upon Canada, and that the
fishermen of the United States
were a badly abused lot of men,
whote natural rights were being
terribly outraged. But, as we
stated some time ago, some of the
American press this season has actually admitted that the New England
fishermen have sometimes gone
within the three-mile limit, and
that when caught they are entitled
to neither support nor sympathy.
The Toronto ilail, in calling attention to this change of front, declares
that the misrepresentations have
been chiefly due to those politicians
who were in the first place responsible for the abrogation of the fish
ery clauses of tho Washington
treaty. Judge Woodbury and Mr.
Babson, who were among the chief
agitators for the abrogation of that
treaty, have lately been urging the
V. 8. government to exercise the
extraordinary powers put into its
liands by congress and suspend all
trade intercourse with the Dominion. In reply to this demand the
New York Times publishes a despatch from Washington which puts
the whole matter in a light that
will be anything but congenial to
these agitators. The despatch says:
"When the question of the temporary arrangement entered into by
Seoretary Bayard with the British
minister was before the committee
on foreign aftairs of the house of
representatives two years ago, Mr.
-.31l/B^^lyJ>nd-^rJCre»cJ^i,■repre,
tenting the fishermen of Gloucester,
and of Massachusetts generally,
argued before that committee for a
day and a half that all that was
needed was to let matters remain
just as they were without any com
mission or further negotiation. The
fishery olauses of tbe Washington
treaty having been abrogated by the
United States, they asserted that
this remanded the two countries
baek to the treaty of 1818, and
with that treaty they said they were
entirely content. They did not
wish to obtrude within the three-
mile limit. Their fishermen had no
use for Canadian ports except in
case of distress, and then the treaty
allowed them entry. They could
obtain all the bait they wanted
elsewhere. Al) they asked was that
the duties on Canadian fish entering
American porta remitted by the
Washington treaty should be reim-
posed, which would be the case if
the fishery clauses of that treaty remained abrogated. This granted, they
oould take care of themselves, and
•iked nothing more. Mr. Babson,
speaking also on behalf of Massachusetts fishermen, occupied the
time of tbe committee for half a
day longer to prove that the habits
of the mackerel had changed since
the treaty of 1818; that they no
longer resorted to Canadian waters,
and consequently the privilege of
fishing within three miles of the
Canadian shore—denied to American fishermen by the treaty of 1818
and awarded them by the Washington; treaty—waa no longer of the
slightest value. He proved this by
an elaborate display of diagrams
and charts. Only reimpose the
duty on fish and let us alone; that
was the unanimous cry of Massachusetts delegates at that time. They
hav* had' their way, and now the
evidence is that the schools of mackerel, despising Mr. Babson's theories,
havo this Tear run close to the
shore on uio Canadian side, and
the Massachusetts fishermen are
either returning empty-handed or
ore running the risk of capture by
violating the treaty which they contended was aU-sulfioient for their
need*. And Mr. Woodbury and
hit auooiatet are now raising an
unfounded' outcry against the ad-
ministration for an alleged abandon
ment of national rights, which, two
yean ago, they were quite willing
to forego if thereby they could en-
aura the permanent imposition of a
protective duty on a staple article
of food,'' This seeoit to us a very
neat reply, and it exposes very
thoroughly the hollowness and in-
contiitency of the outcry made by
theaa New England fishermen and
the demagogue politicians who hope,
to mako political capital out of it.

What Does It Mean?
"Father, what does it mean to be a
drunkard? Maggie Gmy said you wero
a drunkard, and her father said so
tool" Had a bomb-shell exploded at
the feet of Mr. Woston, he could not
have been moro surprised. Ho stood
mute, and one might havo heard a pin
drop, bo silont wore they all. But Kate,
nothing daunted, after waiting what
Bhe considered a proper length of time,
repeated the quostion, and it wnB un-
Bwored: "A mail who drinks liquor
and makes a beast of himself." "Is
that what you do, fathor"" "It is
what I have dono sometimes," he replied in a choked voice. "It's bad,
ain't it!" "Yes, child, Uie very worst
thing a man can do!" "And that's
what makes mother cry when there
don't anything hurt her; aud that's
why 1 have to wear such dreadful old shoes?"
Only ono word in reply to thiB—
"Yes."
"Then I shouldn't think you'd do
so any more; cause mother's good, and
I don't like to wear old shoes a bit!
You won't be a drunkard any more,
will you?" said Katie, and she looked
up to her father so confidingly, that he
caught her in his arms, and hid his
face on her shoulder.    "Say, father,
fou won't, will you?" "No, darling,
won't;" ond raising his right hand
he promised never to drink another
drop of intoxicating liquor. "God
helping," ho added revorently. "BIcbb
you, my darling; you have saved me?"
Then there were team and sobs and
broken ejaculations, all for very joy,
while supper was forgotten. It made
no difference to Kate, whether her
shoes were old or not; but whon a
few days after she became tho possessor of some long boots with red lacings and tassels, sho had a better
appreciation of the change which had
taken place. Since thon she has
often received beautiful gifts; and
always she remembers with grateful
heart that her father is not a drunkard.-iV	
It Don't Pay.
It don't pay to have fifty working-
men poor and ragged in order to have
one saloon-keeper dressed in broadcloth and flush of money.
It don't pay to have these fifty work-
ingmen live on bone soup and half
rations, in order that the salcon-koep-
er may flourish on roast turkey and
champagne.
It don't pay to have the mothers
tnd ohildren of twenty families dressed
and starved into tho semblance of
enitoiated scarecrows, and living in
hovels-in order that the saloon-keeir-
er's wifo m.y dress in satin, and hor
ohildren grow fat and hearty, and live
in a bay-window parlor.
It don't pay to have ono citizen in
the county jail because another citizen
told him liquor.
It don't pay to havo ten smart, active intelligent boys transformed into
hoodlums and thieves, to enable one
man to lead an easy llio by selling
them liquor.
It don't pay to give one man for $15
a quarter, a license to sell liquor, and
then spend $20,000 on the trial of Tim
McLaughlin for buying that liquor
and then committing murder under ita
influence.
It don't pay to have one thousand
homes blasted, ruined, denied and
turned into hells of disorder and
misery, in order that one wholesale
liquor dealer may amass a large for-
"Personal Liberty."
"lama temperanco man, but I
have my doubts whether you have a
right to pas. such a law as you Prohibitionists tre after."
"Why?"
"Well, if peoplo want to sell what
others want to buy, I don't think the
law has a right to prevent. You
haven't a right tu say that peoplo shall
not drink if they want to.''
"Of course, thon, you object to the
law that closes the saloons on Sunday?"
"Oh.no. That is another matter.
That is done simply to preserve the
sanctity of the Sabbath."
"You admit, I suppose, that the
Sabbath wit made for man?"
"Certainly."
"You admit, then, that it is proper
to close the saloons for the sake of the
Sabbath day, while you deny that it is
proper to do the same thing for man
himself, for whom the Sabbath day is
made! Is a part greater than the
whole nowadays?"

smell or Paper Honey.
In speaking of a recent defalcation at the Troy post office, a
gentleman said: "It is never safe
to inclose an old bill in an envelope to be sent by mail. Why,"
said he, "men who are experts
can tell whether a letter contains
money or not simply by the
sense of smell. If you will notice any old greenback, it has
a peculiar smell about it that
can readily be perceived, even if
it be inclosed within a letter. It
is better to send a registered letter or a postal note, or, if you
inclose a bill, be sure it is a new
one. That will not smell."—
Albany Journal.
No Oarpete in Summer.
The European system of painting floors instead of carpeting
them, and decorating them with
handsome rugs, is gradually
growing in popularity on this
side of the Atlantic. Carpets,
as well as curtains, lambrequins,
etc., may be deemed necessary
parts of house-furnishing, but
they all collect dust and dirt of
a most dangerous character. In
the winter they may be tolerated but when summer comes
they should all be removed to
places of security and protected
from light and insect destroyers.
The floor should be oiled with
boiled linseed oil, and whenever
coverings of any kiijd are desirable, on account o'f lessening
sounds, rugs and mats should
take the place of carpets, and
plain shades and shutters will
suffice to exclude too glaring a
light and diminish the dust nuisance. Floors thus treated are
kept clean much easier, as the
oil becomes incorporated with,
the wood and makes a hard finish
as it is oxidized by contract with
the air. The same treatment of
floors, removal of carpets and
unnecessary materials for the
lodgement of dust and organic
impurities will make the. sleeping apartments much more
wholesome. It has long been
acknowledged that carpets are
entirely out of place in the apartments occupied by the sick; that
they retain the poisons, of such
diseases as small-pox, diptheria
and scarlet fever, and it seems,
strange that a crusade against
them has not long since been
organized. In the far-off future,
when people shall have learned
a moderate amount of sanitary
knowledge." "carpets must go."

When to Pick Fruit.
When fruitsaremature the preparations for falling, are just as
Ibr mature leaves. A distinct line
is formed upon the stem of the
fruit in preparation for the separation. When the.apple or pear
is mature it will separate from
the tree without any pulling:
mere lifting the fruit from its
hanging position to a horizontal
one will cause the separation
from the tree to take place at
once. A little observation will
teach when tl)e fruit is ready to
be gathered. At this time, the
fruit having made its growth,
derives nothing more from the
the tree. After the fruit is full-
grown its next step is towards
decay. Decay in early kinds
comes in a few days or weeks.
In the late sorts it requires several months, but whether early or
late, there is a stage in its progress from maturity to decay,
when the fruit best suits our
purpose, and wc say, that it is
"ripe," or"mellow," or "in eating."
This time in early kinds comes
very quickly, and other varieties
do not assume it before Spring.
Early kinds come "into eating
condition" so soon that they will
. bear but little transportation,
hence are suited only for near
markets. But these vary greatly, and they arc from early and
Autumn ripening kinds to the
very latest. The fruit-grower
should be a careful observer of
these points. The best fruit
may be spoiled or materially depreciated in value by careless
picking and handling. Properly
constructed cold storage-houses
willW much towards keeping
fruit in good condition, but unless
the fruit is picked at the right
time it cannot be kept profitably
even in the best of fruit-houses.

Njukly an Accident. — Through
some mistake ou tho engineer's part,
who "turned ahead" at tho signal of
two bolls, instead of reversing his engine, the str. Rainbow oauio vory near
causing a serious accident when landing at Wiso'a wharf last evening. Tho
Gladys was lying at the upper end of
tho wharf at the time, and alongside
of her were quite a number of canoes,
some filled with Siwashos. The Rainbow rushed into the wharf at full
speed, wedging tho Gladys from tho
wharf, and struck the wharf with terrific force and rebounded out in the
stream again. Fortunately very little
damage was done to cither the Gladys
or the wharf. One or two of the cuu-
oes, however, were demolished and
their contents spilled in the water.
Cariboo Quahtz. — A correspondent, writing to tho Colonist from Cariboo, says: "During the past week
work has been pushed ahead as fast as
possible at the Island Mountain mine.
The new boarding house has been
completed and all the officers and men
are domiciled there. At the mine, developments during the past week have
been most important, as tho ledge has
been discovered down the mountain,
several hundred foet from the lowor
tunnel, where tho ledge looks quito as
good as at the tunnel. Nothing is being dono on outside ledges; everyone
is waiting on the Island Mountain just
to seo whether it will bo a success or
not. If tho Island Mountain is a success there will be the biggest quartz
boom here that woe ever on tho Pacific
coast—and from presont appearances
there is uo doubt but what it will be
a success.
Kootenay Coal.—A letter from
Kootenay to a gentleman in Victoria
gives very encouraging reports of the
coal finds. It says: "I found very
good work has been done here and the
results are agreeably surprising. On
one seam they are in 65 feet, with a
shaft sunk from tho hanging to the
foot wall, a distance of 35 foet. Of
thia there are 30 feet of solid coal without a flaw in it' Then comes a bed ut
5 feet nf coal and shale mixed. Another seam near the former has 12 feet
of solid pure coal. Two more seams
near have each 7 feet of pure coal, and
another ha. 14 feet. There aro still
two more each of four feet ef pure
coal. All these seams nre superimposed one above tho other at distances
varying from a 100 to 40 feet apart.
They are all opened up, showing the
hanging and foot wall. The cnitl appears to be much of the same quality
throughout. It is 'of n bright blaok
and shilling appearance, hardly soil.
the finger, when touched and makes a
brilliant clear fire, with a rmioku inure

the surface il is very brittle, but becomes harder further into thu seam.
No signs of sulphur can be detected.
All now depends oil the quality of the
coal, there is no doubt about the qunn

The Ministers Interviewed.
A Deputation or llie Hoard of Trade
Haa Home iirlevaares to Present.
Last night u deputation fi-tim thu
West mine ter beard of trade waited upon Hon. Mr. Thompson, minuter uf
juatice, and Hon. Mr. McLelan, post-
matter-genera), at the Colonial Hotel.
The deputation, which consisted of
Messrs. John Hendry (president), VV.
N. Bole, M.P.P., 0. M. Boeolier, B,
Douglas and T. J. Trapp, waa introduced by Mr. D. Ohisholm, M. P.
Mayor Dickinson was also present, a
well as some other citizens. The tirst
matter taken up was the appointment
of county court judges. Mr. Bole discussed at considerable langth the importance of a change in the judicial
aystem, pointing out many of the eccentricities of the present usage, and
insisting that in large districts suoh
as Westminster it waa not possible for
the judge of the supreme {court to discharge the double duties of the two
sets of courts. Hon. Mr. Thompson
admitted that the present arrangements aeemed to be unsatisfactory, and
promised that the suggestions of the
board would receive careful consideration. The other matter discussed by
the deputation was the unsatisfactory
nature of the mail service between
this oity and Victoria. It was pointed
out to the Hon. Mr. McLelan that the
steamer now performing that service
was quite unsuitable, and the timo occupied in making the trip was unrnaa-
onably long. As a consequence of
publio distrust of the steamer's safety,
and the tediousness. of the voyage,
travel was being driven away from the
river route, and was forced to go by
way of Vancouver, involving inconvenience and considerable additional
coat. The deputation suggested that
the specifications of the mail service
should be such as to require the employment of a steamer thoroughly seaworthy and capable of making the trip
within a reasonable time. Hon. Mr.
McLelan promised ' to consider the
matter fully, and left the deputation
to infer that a remedy would be applied to the existing grievances.
Victoria Election.
At the last moment, and contrary
to general expectation, un opposition
candidate turned up yeaterday in tho
person of tho somewhat' celebrated
Thomar, Baail Humphroyp. Tlio election took place to-day,
Nina White's ft'lftlilutr.
During her stay at Harrison Hot
Springs, Miss White, daughter of the
Hon. Tims, White, uecompliahcd a
feat worthy of record, namely that of
successfully landing tlie largest trout
captured ut Harrison Lako this year.
Miss White hooked the iish from off
tin) bridge at the weatorn ond of the
hotel and took it frmn tho water with
all the dexterity of an old fisherman.
Tho trout was a beauty, measuring
over 2 feet in length. Tho fair angler
received the praises of all presont, and
future visitors to tho Springs will, no
doubt, bo often regaled with tho story
of Miss White's clover wpturo of tho
monster trout.

other works in the mountains. They

That "Tocsin of the Soul, the Din-

no pleasing reflections to the dyspeptic,
bilious sufferer. He partakes, of course,
but the subsequent torment is egregiously
out of proportion to the quantity of food
he eats, which lies undigested, a weight
like lead in his unhappy stomach. There
is a remedy, however, and its name Is
Northrop k Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure. Nocnsc is entirely hopeless.
