Zoologists, ab nny rate, will he.
glad to learn ■ that an enterprising
photographer in India has succeeded
in getting an authentic picture from
life of a tiger in the very act of killing a buffalo. Tlie buffalo, though
fatally struck by a single blow from
the right paw of the carnivorous
animal, had not time to fall before
the sun-picture of its dying moments
was fixed witli unerring fidelity
upon the faithful plate, and^ so it
stands there, "with its knees just
giving way. under it and its great
head drooping in death." Tliis is
the first instance recorded'of the
use of photography in so thrilling a
spectacle, and it virtually settles the
much disputed point as to the way
in which the tiger dispatches its
prey. The experiment is perhaps
' none the less conclusive because it
was tried upon a tame buiTalo with
a captive tiger whose native owners
were taking him about tho country
to exhibit his killing powers for
gain. The instrument of the photographer was set up only seven
yards distant from the buffalo and
the spring-shutter of tlie camera was
released just' as the tiger delivered
his knock-down blow. Certainly
this was a tragic experiment, but in
the interest of accurate knowledge
on so interesting n matter as tlie
precise method of slaughter natural
to the tiger, even the buffalo should
not be averse to liavo its neck dislocated. — N. Y. Commercial 'Advertiser.
The practice of at least threatening to prosecute for criminal libel,
publishers of newspapers, appears
to be growing in this country, and
in view of this circumstance it may
be interesting to note the decision
recently given at tho Warwick Assizes by Lord Chief Justice Coleridge, in England. In the case of
Butler vs. Heynes, of Leamington,
the defendant was indicted for publishing a criminal libel concerning
the plaintiff. His lordship in dismissing the case said he strongly set
his face against turning libels into
crimes. He had occasion recently
to look up the old law on the sui:
jdfct, and found that a hundred years
ago much greater people than him
self would not have allowed such a
cose as tins to go even before a
grand jury. It had become too
fashionable nowadays, if a person
was slandered, whicli was a civil
matter, to convert it into a criminal
case. But it must be a very bad
libel indeed to justify such a proceeding, although it was in vain to
say so now, because the practice had
become so established. He would,
however, never help to turn what
after all was purely a civil question
into a criminal one. If a man's
character were attacked, let him
vindicate it iu a civil court. The
precedent established in England
should be noted by not merely members of the legal profession in Canada, but newspaper men generally.

Tho redwood has beeu introduced
both in the Eastern States and in
England, and wherever it has been
used bns found favor in the eyes of
housebuilders, many of the almost
regal residences of the East having
as the outside finish the redwood in
its rich, natural color. At present
the only redwood shipped East is
that used for finishing purposes, but
it is only a matter of time whon its
many advantages will become known
and it will be in general demand,
•No wood has ever been discovered
that combines so many advantages
for all purposes as this. It is'-msily
worked; it may be used green just
as it comes from the mill; it does
not warp in drying nor shrink or
swell by exposure to the weather;
it burns slowly and when on fire is
easily extinguished, because the
wood contains no rosin; it is brittle
and breaks off Bquarely, so that in
case of fire the firemen -have no difficulty in cutting tlieir way from
house to house, and it does not rot
at the ground like most other woods,
and fence-posts wliich have stood
for thirty years are as sound to-day
as when they were planted. The
redwood grows only in California,
the forests commencing a little south
of this city and ending abruptly before reaching tlie Oregon line.—San
Franciaco Chronicle.
The Octobor bullotin of the Manitoba Department of Agriculture
Bhows that the harvest in Eastern
Manitoba was especially lute and'
wet, and that the wheat crop suffered materially in quality owing to
sprouting. In tlie western part of
the province the quantity of grain
per acre was smaller than in the
central or eastern sections, but tho
quality was bettor. Ripening of
■the grain varied greatly in different
parts of the province, the commencement of harvest varying from Autr.
19th to Sept 8th, while the ending
varied from Sept. 9th to Oct 13th.
The range of oats is greater than
the varying latitude or elevation of
the province can account for, and
suggests that late sowing, in consequence of wetness of the soil, has
had much to do with the late harvests reportod from many counties.
In tho eastern counties several days
of fine weather following heavy rain
have failed to make the soil bear
farm machinery. "Where so many
farmers occupy so much land," the
report suggests, "alternate portions
might be cropped in alternate seasons," a plan which would facilitate
preparation for early seeding in
spring. The meteorological records
show that for coolness and lateness tho season has beeu a very
exceptional one, The wheat crop is
estimated at 6,205,620 bushels, or
twenty bushels per aero.—Nnpdnee

The Cleveland Fumily.
II, B. Cleveland, a relative of President-elect Cleveland, who arrived Sunday from New York, gossips nbout the
President-elect, and says that we will
havo a conservative administration;
that Cleveland iB making no promises,
and Unit he never mnde any; that he
is the luckiest man ever heard of; that
in addition to (he offices of Sheriff,
Mayor, Governor and President, he is
about to get $250,000 which was left
some years ago by the will of a Democrat to tho tirst Democrat who should
bo elected President; that he is now
overrun with oflice-seckers; finally,
that the Clevelands were a smull family
beforo their cousin, Grove* Cleveland,
wus elected President, but that they
now seem to bo more numerous than
the Smiths.
A Hint to Pastors.
Colonel Yerger, meeting Hev.
Whangdoodle Baxter on Austin Avenue, asked hiin:
'How is your congregation coming
on?"
"Wo nm goin' right ahead, sah.
Since we has quit passin' de hat we
has taken in lots ob money. De ker-
locshuns has increased wonderfully,
salt, wonderfully."
"I don't understand how you can
tako up collections if you don't pass
tlio hat."
"We passes de plate now."
"Well, Unit's the sumo thing ns passing the hat, isn't it ?"
"No, sah, hit nm't de sumo thing.
Deacen Webster passed de lint for
muah den n year, and de kerlecshuus
was mighty small, but now I passes de
plate mysolf, and de money just rolls
in. De plate am. much moro reliable
den de hat."
"How is that?"
"Doacon Webster put tar in de top
ob his hat."
The Telephone Girl.
The girl had been asleep a long
time, when somebody culled. Looking
at the switch-board, she observed that
No 111 whs down, and leisurely raising
tho phone to her ear, she softly replied: . .
"Hello!"
"Hello, ducky," was tho answer,
and Bhe made faces at the key-board a
long timo before alio paid any more attention to him.   Then Bhe suid;
"Oh, you bald-headed old sinner!
What do you want?"
"Dr. Highflyer. No, 2222."
"Hello!,P
"Hello, Highflyer! My wife is not
vory well to-night. Sho. has a severe
pain in the back of her neck, and
complains of a sort of (-oneness in her
abdomen."
"Got malarial colic, I guess,"
"I think so. What shall I do for
her V
Here the wicked telephone girl
switched on a machinist who was telling the owner of a sawmill what he
thought ailed his boiler, and the answer to Doldodle'B question was as
follows:
"I think she's covered with acules
inside about an inch thick. Lot her
coul down during tho night, and before she fires up in the morning, take
a hammer nud pound her thoroughly
all over, and then take a hose and
hitch it on the fire-plug nud wash her
out. I wouldn't be surprised if
she ib half full of mud, besides the
scales. When you get through, fill
her up with cold water and build n
good fire under her, and if she don't
get hot enough to steam well in half
an hour, I'll oat her," *
The result is that No. Ill does not
now apeak to No. 2222, and Dr. High*
flyer has had the telephone taken out
of his house, because he ia uo lunger
ablo to pay rent for it.—Through Mail.

Too Short.
It is now stated, with apparent
certainty, tliat the dry-dock a,t Esquimalt is from 100 to 150 feet too
short to admit vessels sueh as are
likely to navigate the Pacific ou the
completion of the Canadian Pacific
Railway. If this be a fact, and
it may be accepted as suoh, we have
now reached another fundamental
blunder in this most mismanaged,
work. It is certainly of the utmost
importance that a graving dock
wliich is to cost such a large stun
of money should be capable of accommodating all classes of shipping,
otherwise it cannot bn u success.
If shipping increases as it is expected to increase on this coast, it
will come to pass that 'another dock
will be established with sufficient
room for the largest class of vessels',
and the one uow under construction will seriously sutler. It is now
some years sinco tlie Esquimalt dry-
dock was. designed, aud of late tlie
tendency1 of naval architecture has
been decidedly towards larger vessels. This is especially true of those
which uv& intended to make long
voyages, wliere large quantities of
coal and stores are necessary. Tlie
tendency towards largeness hus not
yet disappeared, and before the
dock has been completed it may be
found that it is ten years behind
the times both in design and in
capacity. It is a matter of some
doubt whether the Dominion government should go on with tlie construction of the dock according to
existing specifications, or enlarge it
so as to meet the requirements of
the times. It would certainly be
the part of economy to enlarge tbe
scale now, as the cost of enlargement will bo very much loss than
that of enlarging tho dock after
completion. But in any event the
additional cost will be several
hundred thousand dollars! Now,
if the dry-dock still belonged to the
government of British Columbia,
and the discovery of its shortness
led to the necessity of another demand for two or three hundred j
thousand dollars, the situation would
be serious enough to strike dismay
into the heart of every taxpayer.
And that is the situation which we
would probably have been called
upon to face at the present moment.
In these holiday festivities it should
be a source of extreme gratitude
that this vast nightmare has been
lifted and transferred to the federal
government which is better able to
wrestle witli it. Tlie Esquimalt dry-
dock is the worst enterprise in which
this province ever invested its capital ; it has. been botched at every
turn; it has swallowed up the provincial revenues to such an extent
that desolation and decay wore
every wliere permitted to disfigure
the fair face of this country; and
the fortunate coup d'etat by which
it was shifted from our shoulders
to those of the Dominion 1ms already wrought wonderful transformations 6verywhere. We shall
receivo the financial and commercial
benefits of tho construction and
maintenance of the work, while we
are delivered from all responsibility
and expense—and for every dollar
already spent on the dock we have
been recouped from the federal
treasury.
The (II) Council.
It is not the special business of
TllK COLUMBIAN either lo defend
the present city  council or to correct the untruthful statements sen!
out by almost every  issue of tbo
(iimrdinn.     Indeed we seldom attempt to correct theeirorsof that
paper,  because most, of  theni  are
wilful perversions of fact, put forward expressly  to deceive,     The
public has long ago readied tho con
elusion that tliese eccentricities are
a   confirmed   habit, and they are
promptly    discounted   accordingly.
In the organ's last issuo we find an
article on municipal matters which.
on account of its plausibility, may
gain the credence of some .who do
not know the facts.    The article
deals particularly with the proposed
gale of public squares und the con
nection of this city by railway with
the 0. P. VL   It is full of mistute-
mentg.    It asserts that the property proposed  to be sold will not
reg!i».|7r»,000. - Very much better
authorities place the value of 'his
'property at over 8100,000.   It says
■ that "Honest John", and his agents
have been trying to induce the city
'.to give $70,000 for the purport of
.running a lino to Coal Harbor so
as to increase the value of property
there.     We  believe there  is no
truth whatever in this.   The only
railway connection this city wants
no this side of tho rivor- is connection with the O. V. W, at tho point
most convenient for trade-. The
city iias never pretended to say
whero that connection should be.
It has left the question of location
to the syndicate or the company
which may undertake to construct
the line. Tlio city council is not
composed of civil engineers or railway experts; and as it asks only
for railway connection, it was most
appropriate that the place of connection should bo left for the decision of men experienced iu that particular department. Last summer
a proposition was mado by persons
interested at Port Moody to locate
the connecting lino at that place,
and the council foolreldy sanctioned
the proposal in so. far us advertising
a bonus of 650-.000 for the.work.
But the result was anything but
•happy. There never has been a
proposal submitted to the council to
aid in constructing a lino from this
city to Coal Harbor, its stated by
the Cuardlan, nor has there been
such ft thing even hinted at except
by the organ and its crowd. We
should emphatically oppose such a
scheme, unless it could be shown to
be the best way of securing railway
connection with the C.P.R.—wliich
we believe cannot bo done. It is
railway connection with the great
Canadian trunk road we want—not
connection with Port Moody or Coal
Harbor or English Bay; and we
hope the ratepayers of tbis city will
take good care to see that no part
of their funds are diverted to any
other scheme. But the Chutrdian
makes another positive statement
which should be contradicted. It
says that the council is "secretly
negotiating with Mr, Ewen for a
compromise of the action entered
by that gentleman for the protection
of Ins property, by wliich tlie ratepayers of this city arc to be saddled
with all the costs of the law procedure in the lute injunction case, and
Mr. Ewen is to bo protected by
leaving* Merchant Square out of the
list of sale, or a street is to be left
near his property." The only grain
of truth in this sentence is tho concluding portion of it. It was the
intention always to have a street on
the side of Merchant Square next
Ml*. Eweu's property, and as a matter of fact the plan drawn by
Messrs. Woods & Turner long ago,
and accepted by the council, shows
a street on every side of the square
aud Douglas st. running through
the middle of it. Respecting the
secret negotiations, we have the
very best authority for saying that
no proposition or negotiation looking to a compromise in the injunction case has ever been entertained
or made by the corporation. It is
generally believed that the injunction was the outcome of a caucus of
Port' Moody property holders who
determined that unless railway connection was made with Port Moody
direct it would not be made at all.
Mr. Van Home's statements pointed
to a much simpler, cheaper aud
more desirable scheme for connection
with the C. P. R. These people,
therefore, undertook to block the
iramo by defeating the sale of lots,
and Mr. Ewen, who felt somewhat
aggrcived at the prospective obstruction to liis river view, was induced
to become the figure-head in the
action. Tho sale was stopped for a
time, aud the city has been put to
several hundred dollars of unnecessary expense in consequence; but
the machinery will soon be set in
motion again, aud we havo confidence that the common sense of the
community will support the action
of the council. It is extremely important that we should have railway
connection, but whether that is secured or not the squares should be
sold and the proceeds turned into
public improvements.

wash the lantern windows frequently
with hot wafer so as to keep them from
becoming obscured by ice. If the
keeper had remained at his post his
light would not hnve been Been nt any
distance, nud he himsolf might have
perished with cold. It is not very

should be possible.

Communications.
Elector Squelched.
Editor Columbian. — My attention
has heen called to a correspondence in
Wednesday's Guardian signed "Elector,"
which for virulence no doubt merits the
approval of the court below. The occa'
sion which prompted tho present attack
on the member of the lcgislatue tor this
city, was the furnishing of Btovos for the
new addition to tlw asylum. It would
not he iny business to notice it, but for
tlio fact tliat I, as superintendent, have
been dragged into this said correspondence, for the purpose, I suppose, of mak
ing a still stronger case against Mr. Cun
ningbam. I will quote what refers to
myself: ''The superintendent told the
committee last Friday that the wing is
iu the wrong place," Now, admitting
(for the sako of argument) that I did
make such a remark, does not this prove
that some one of the committee betrayed
tliat confidence that should exist amongst
honorable men in private conversation,
and furnished the above quoted item to
help swell the long list of slanderous
charges made against tho member for
this city T Mr. Cunningham, as one _ of
tlie committee, certainly did not furnish
the item; I, the superintendent, did not
furnish the item; it rests with Mr. Ferris aiid Mr. Rae, the two other members
of the committee, to clear their skirts of
the dishonorable act of furnishing material for the express purpose of libeling
Mr, Cunningham's character. With regard to thu change of site spoken of by
"Elector," the only parties that opposed
the change of sito were Mr. Ferris and
Mr. Rae. and I never yot can understand
why thoy should have acted against all
light and knowledge and common sense,
against the opinion of myself and Mr,
Cunningham who is a builder by trade,
and even the provincial secretary, who
was convinced, after examining the
ground, that it would he a great blunder
to put the wing on the west sido of the
main building on account of tho rise iii
the ground which would have buried the
ground floor 18 feet below tho levol of
tlie surface; and instead of the change
ot site costing six or eight thousand dollars more, it is just the contrary. 'The
"four horse team load" to the asylum
spoken of was tho stoves which Mr.
Cunningham furnished, and with respect
to that transaction-—before the stoves
were ordered Mr. Cunningham tasked me
to go and sec if Mr. Scoullar hall suitable
stoves, and if so to take them. Mr.
Scoullar had only three that were suitable, which were ordered; the balance
were taken from Mr. Cunningham, the
only place they were to. bo had; and as
the frost was playing havoc with the
plastering iu the new wing, tliere was no
alternative.
James Kennedy
It is wise to provide against emergencies that are liable to arise in every
family. A cold may he a dangerous
thing, or not, depending upon the means
at hand' to combat it. In sudden attacks
of cold, croup, asthma, etc., Ayer'sCher-
ry Pectoral will provo tho quickest and
most effective cure, and your hest friend.
queen Charlotte Indians.
The Indian generally, is nu ill-mannered brute, who steals into yuur presence without warning, handles whatever he sees without permission,
smokes if you allow it, and seldom,
especially if a middle-aged or old woman, leaves you without bugging a
potlatch. He exhibits very little deferential respect for Iub superiors, seldom
expresses gratitude for favors, and
more rarely does them without expecting compensation. At their homes,
howover, there is much to he commended in their conduct. There thoy
are generally quiet and peaceable, converse in low tones, and treat their
children, with kindness. Thero is a
noticeable difference iu favor of the
deportment of those Hydas of Massett
and Skidegate who have come undor
the influence of missionary training.
DOMESTIC! RHUTIONS.
The Hydas generally enter tlm marriage state in early youth, thu females
frequently between Iho ages of fourteen and sixteen. Mutches are often
arranged by thu parents bufore Ihe
children are old enough to chouso for
themselves. In such cases, when of
suitable age, the young man and woman begin .to livo together without
other ceremony than u mutual agreement nud understanding between them
and their relatives, and the bestowal
ot presents und dowry and presents
upon the bride. Whon the parties
make tlieir own selections, which is
now ofteuest done, and the young man
falls in love, he tells his mother, who
goes to the mother of his sweetheart,
(ka-ta-dha,)'and makes n declaration
of hor sun s affection for and dosiro to
marry the girl. If thu proposal is
favorably received, the parents and
friends of the groom assemble at an
appointed timo nt the house of the
bride's parents, whoro, all sitt ing round
tho fire, tho good qualities of the young
man are praised by his friends to thu
father of tho girl. She is present,
also, and if satisfied nfter listening to
all ihe gracious words in favor uf her
intended, she rises from her place,
goes and sits down beside her lover,
and tiiklm* his hnnd in hers tho ceremony is complete. Among thoso Hydas who profess Christianity, marriage
is solemnized by a ceremony, nt which
a missionary or Justico of tho Pence
ollicintes, the siwnn as. among the
whites, und other unions are not regarded ns binding. Polygamy wns
formerly much practised, especially by
the chiefs, who took young women for
their wives as often as they desired
thom, but nono of the natives, so far
ns my observation extended, now huvo
moro thnn one wife. Mnrried women
are generally well treated, and instead
of being more menial servants as frequently represented, thoy uftener carry
the purse than thu men, and have an
equal voice in tlie management of
family affairs. Indeed, the only domestic unpleasantness which I witnessed were cases of young wives vigorously asserting authority ovor the
"old man." The marriage relation
has however, undergone a radiral
change since au many females, from
their own earnings, not only bring
must of the money into the household,
but frequently support the men in
idleness.
hlaveiiy.
Slavery has existed among the Hydas, as with the other native races,
from the earliest times. Until a comparatively recent period thoy were always at war with some of the coast
tribes, and, being generally victorious,
mado many captives, whom they held
in bondage, usually attached to the
household of the conquering chief,
who became their absoluto owner and
master, oven to ordering their sacrifice,
which lias occurred on many occasions.
A slave, (elaidi), was formerly valued
at from one hundred nnd fifty to two
hundred blankets, but now, though
there are still a number upon the island, they are no longer bought and
Bold, but enjoy unrestrained freedom.
Many prefer to remain with or near
their former masters and render service for food and protection—especially
men—rather than return to tlieir native villages and endure the disgrace
nnd taunts for having been overcome
iu battle. Several whito men hnve
been«enptured and held ns slaves by
the Hydas within the last thirty years.
The custom of distributing property
prevails more or less among all the
northwestern tribes. The potlatch is
usually preceded hy a great feast, also
provided by tho donor. They are
never prompted by a spirit of unselfish
generosity, but nre given ns a means of
acquiring popularity and influence, for
tho compensation of labor performed,
in satisfaction for injuries done, and
sometimes as a means of revenge. The
greatest potlatches are given by the
chiefs, either for the purpose of obtaining or retaining the chieftaincy. On
such occasions the feasts aro sometimes
prolonged for days, and hundreds of
blankets distributed. Whenever a
great house or carved pole is erected,
there is a feast and potlatch for'all
who assist in the work. They are also
held on occasions of tattooing, when
females arrive at maturity, and as u
part of the funeral ceremony. In most
instances a record is kept of the property dispensed, and an equivalent, if
not already received, is expected at
Home future potlutch.
DANCING AND MASQUERADING.
The Hydas are fond of dancing, aud
display groat ingenuity in devising
many grotesque and fanciful costumes
for wearing upon such occasions.
Every beast, bird and fish almost of
which thuy have any knowledge, is
represented in some form—the heads
of bear, seal and other animals aro
worn upon their heads, and also hideous masks, with moving eyes and lips.
The costly na-xin, or blanket, woven
from the wool of the mountain goat, ts
thrown over the shoulder; curiously
carved rattles aru held in their hands,
whistles imitating owls, wild geese,
loons, eagles, aud other animals, are
blown, drums are beaten; castanets—
small hoops upon which numerous puffin
beaks are suspended—shaken, bird's
down is scattered until it tills the air
and covers the performers, who, with
a swinging, slouchy movement, danco
for an hour at a time, rattling, whistling, singing and grunting. There
are reception dances—Skuga and Hi-
ate — houso-building dances—Skadul,
the Kata-ka-gitn dance when the house
is completed, and the Skarut dance,
preceding a distribution of property—
and also on occasions of tattooing and
death. The latter is performed by a
single man, naked with the exception
of a brecch-cloth, wearing a hideous
mask on his head. He runs at large
through the village, and simulating an
infuriated wild boast, seizes dogs, tears
them iu pieces, and eats the raw flesh,
Nearly all these dancOB have been
abandoned at Massett and Skidegate,
but most of them are still practiced in
those villages not yet reaohed by the
missionaries.-■From Prof. Chittenden1 s
Official Report.
Mr. W. It. Lazier, Bailiff, ftc, Bolle-
ville, writes: "I find Dr, Thomas' Eclectrie Oil the best medicine I have ever
used in my stable. I have used it for
bruises, scratches, wind puffs and cuts,
aud in every case it gave the best satisfaction. We uso it as a household remedy for colds, burns, ke., and it is a perfect panacea. It will remove warts by
paring them down and applying it occasionally. "

More Revision.
The Now York Independent mentions that a revision of the Presbyterian Confession of Faith wns proposed by Rev. Dr. Neviu at the rocent
meeting of the General Assembly.it
Saratoga, and though tho motion to
appoint a committee fur that purposo
did not pass,, the writer says thero is
evident need of such revision, since
the defects of tho Confession are too
groat to be much lunger overlooked.
One of these defects mentioned ia the
citation of texts which are now Universally acknowledged not ta be genuine
in. support of certain articles in the
Confession, as "the notorious 'I John'
6:7." Thon there are several cases nf
mistranslation of texts, "so serious ns
to destroy the persistency of the
citation," which errors have beun corrected in tho new-Scripture version,
aud should be also in the Confession,
But a iiioru seri'ius error in tho West*
minster Confession, which calls loudly
for correction", the writer says, is that
it cites doubtful passages of Scripture to 'provo a point desired while
strong and clear opposing pannages are
altogether ignored—e. g., "Upon the
strength of tho text: 'Neither is there
salvation in any other,' tliu Confession
predicate* the 'terrible' doctrine that
'men not professing tho Christian religion' cannot he sitved, 'lie thuy never
su diligent to frame their lives according to iho light of nature and the law
of that religion they do profess'—entirely overluoking that Inter Baying of
the samo Apostle: "Iu every nation,
ho that fcareth God and wmketh
righteousness is accepted with him." '

Henry Clement, Almonte, writes:—
"For a long time I was troubled with
chronic rheumatism, at times wholly disabled; I tried anything and everything
recommended, but failed to get any benefit, until a gentleman who was cured of
rheumatism by Dr. Thomas', Ecloctrio
Oil, told me about it, I began using it
both internally and externally, und lie-
fore two bottles were used I was radically cured. We find it a household
medicino, and for croup, burns, cuts and
bruises, it has no equal."
 -m- _—-
Development of Leprosy.
A gentleman recently arrived from
tho Hawaiian Islands states that for
tho tirst time in the history of the
Island the whites have become thoroughly excited over the important subject of leprosy. The disease is increasing rapidly, lepers being frequently
seen on the streets of Honolulu, and in
all the early stages of the disease. Tho
general opinion has been that the disease is not contagious, but of late
those who hnve closely .studied the
matter havo come to another conclusion. One of the beliefs is thnt no
American or European of the brunette
type can contract the disease, for uo
case has been known among them.
Among the fairhaired Scandinavians,
howevor, the leprosy is prevalent, not
only in the Islands, but in their, native country. This fact has led to the
belief that the disease is first engendered by climatic conditions, the sanitary condition of the surroundings
and the character of tho food eaten.
It is a curious fact that thu children of
lepers do uot develop the disease,
while their children do; and in families
whero there never has been leprosy
some of the children become lepers.
It will be remembered that a white
child suffering from leprosy was
brought to this city from the Islands
Borne time ngo and recently died. She
was one of three children all of whom
had the disease contracted, it is believed, through vaccination. The physicians on the Islands have heen giving
careful study to the subject, and it is
believed thnt they have discovered the
microbe. At any rate experiments are
being made with something that has
been discovered, and an effort has been
made to cultivnte the microbe, that
vaccination for leprosy may be practiced. An experiment is now being
tried in the case of a condemned criminal, who has been inocculated, and
whose case will he carefully studied,
in the hope that something definite
may be learned concerning tho dread
disease So much attention has been
given to the subject in Honolulu, and
the disease is spreading bo fast, that
the white population, as above stated,
has become aroused to the necessity
for doing something to protect themselves.
Most excruciating are tho twinges
which rack the muscles and joints of the
rheumatic. Northrop k Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure, uy
promoting increased action of the kidneys, by whieh tho blood is more effectually depurated, removes through the
natural channels certain acrid elements
in the circulation which produce rheumatism and gout. The medicine is also
a fine laxative antibilious medicine and
general coirectivo.

Nkw York, Dec. 12-St. John, the
Temperance candidate for President,
writes that ho never offered or proposed
to sell out to the Republicans, He continues: "lam to-day and always have
been comparatively a poor mnn. The

ami continue its threats of personal violence. It may open its floodgates of
falsehood, ami viilification and bitterness upon me, bnt it can never swerve me
one jot or tilth- from doing what my conscience tell lite is right. The campaign
for 1888 Is already begun, and the warfare against the liquor traffic will he
vigorously prosecuted. 'I he political
party that stands In tbe way of this
movement of the people, iu defense of
their homos, will get hurt. The spirit of
intolerance exhibited by the Republican
press to-day is doing fur that pf>rty just
what the snine spirit did for the Pro-
slavery party thirty years ago. Hanging men in eltigy, indulging in fulsehood
ami villitieation are not arguments.
Nkw York, Dec. 11—The polico have
unearthed a genpinc "Fagln" in the person of a Hebrew, Max Cohen, whose
apartments in Mulberry street are ft 11 of
stolen articles obtained from boys, some
of who ii aro but six and eight years old.
It came out ou examination that he systematically taught troys to steal nnd then
bring him the result of their thefts. Boys
who ought unt to have been out of their
dresses soon became expert sneak-thieves
and displayed wonderful resources in devising moans to stool, The boys as a
rule worked iu pairs, one helping the
other out, only one generally doing the
stealing while the other did all he could
to distract the attention of the persons of
the store. One boy testified : laI havo
done cloven months hi the refuge. [He
meant tho House of Refuge.] I am up to
moro snuff than you can get on to; so
when ahout three weeks ago I met young
Harris Cohen, the old 'mis son, and he
ast me If I wanted to make some gelt.
I know lots o' fellers that works fer his
old man. All the boys around the place
knows him and sells  him   their swag.
Everything we got wc touk to Cohen.
The old skin paid ua about $1 for 85
worth. One timo we got on to a pair of
false teeth on canal street, worth 840,
but didn't know it then, but give 'em to
Cohen, 'cause he said they wasn't worth
anything. He's a bigger skin than you
fellers think he is. He always bought
everything we took him. Lord bless you,
he didn't want to ask no questions."
From all appearances, Cohen did not
confine his buying solely to boys. The
police- think he is a well-established
fence and that liis business dealings were
with almost all the thieves iu the city,
Toronto, Dec. 10—At the Conservative Convention to-day PrcinierNonjuay
of Manitoba presented Sir John Macdonald an address from Manitoba, expressing
the confidence of Manitoba in Sir John
and affection of the people for him" Persona! addresses from Regina and Portage
La Prarie were also presented. Sir John
in replying expressed his intention of
shortly making a tour of Canada, from
Quebec to British Columbia. Resolutions
were submitted, laying down a platform
of the Conservative Party, embracing a
National Policy, Canadian Pacific Railway development, and a canal Bystein,
freedom from taxation of tea and coffee,
reduction of interest on the public debt,
condemning the independence movement
and all annexation proclivities, as well as
expressing gratification at the settlement
of the boundary question.
Washington, Dec. ifl—The gist of the
Nicaragua Treaty haB been made public,
and its provisions have been the
means of arousing tho hostility of, apparently, a majority of the House. The
Senate may ratify the treaty—-at least
the vote upon it will be close—but the
House will not—at tho present session, at
least—vote the money necessary for the
construction of the canal. The Democratic
members resent tho action of the President in negotiating the commercial treaties and the Nicaragua Treaty as a snub
to the new administration. The leaders
say they will leave all matters affecting
the financial and political policy of the
Government now pending to be settled
nfter Cleveland is inaugurated, and as
they have a majority In tlio House, whatever the Senate may do will be of little
practicle value.
Cairo, Dec. 11,—A spy who has arrived from Debbed, reports that 4,000
rebels have been Bent by El Mahdi to reinforce Osman Digma, but on hearing of
the arrival of the British troops at Korbi,
they wore halted at Berber, where they
now remain to oppose the British advance.
Mrs. A. Nelson, Brantford, writes: "I
was a sufferer from-Chronic Dyspepsia
for eleven years. Always after eating,
an intense burning sensation iu the stomach, at times very distressing, caused
a drooping and languid feeling, which
would last for several hours aftor eating.
I was recommended by Mr. Poppiewefi,
Chemist, of our city, to try Northrop k
Lymau's Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure, and I am thankful to say
that I have not beeu better for years;
that burning sensation and languid feeling has all gone, and food does not lie
heavv on my stomach, Others of my
family have used it with best rcsnlts."
Foolino a Conscientious Conductor-,—Conductor Allbright runs a

when Glen Station was reached he

other side of the station Allbright'

indulging iu a very littlo emphatic

"Here we aro, at Glen Station."

The largest organ whicli the Company
will exhibit, fl double-bank pedal, is at
present at the Dominion Exhibition,
Montreal, but is oxpected here at the
end of the week. It is arranged to lie
blown by Turk's water motor, which has
been placed in position to await the
arrival of the big instrument. The or-
gans run through all grades, from the
thousand dollar instrument down to the
parlor favorite. The cases show wonderful variety. Many of these are of
rare beauty and skilful workmanship.
The case which secured for the Company
a. prize at the Centennial Exhibition at
Philadelphia is still much admired, aud
is largely manufactured. Cases for parlor organs arc chaste in design and artistic in execution. The musicians who
tested the organs affirmed that for sweetness of tone and elasticity of touch they
are model instruments; while visitors
can themselves judge as to the beauty
and style of tlie cases.

Perhaps the most artistic building on
the exhibition ground is the pavilion of
the Dominion Organ and Piano Company
of Bowmanville. It Is moreover one of
the most interesting to lovers of good
music as being the location of a magnificent collection of instruments. The
erection of this building, which cost
about $1,000, became necessary to meet
tho requirements of the company, which
had been cramped for room iu (lie Main
Building, where it is impossible to judge
the merits of high-class instruments. The
enterprise displayed by the Company in
providing suitable quarters on the
grounds Tor their business lias been rewarded. The large number of visitors
who call, inspect, and purchase proves
beyond uucstion that the public approve
the provision mnde for their convenience
nud comfort. Here a crowd may be
seen listening to test performances on
tirst-class instruments made by leadiug
city and country musicians.
ilight well do the Company deserve
the success which thoy have achieved.
The present prosperous concern had, like
all great institutions, its day of small
things, It had its origin in Bowmanville
about fifteen years ngo, the stoek lioing
at that time largely held hy parties Unacquainted with lie- business. Ahout ten
years go John Wesley, the present secretary and treasurer) George Piggott, the
manager of the manufacturing department; and W, S. R its-toll, superintend
cut of tho tuning department, bought
out the shareholders nud assumed control. Siner that date the business has
been booming. A further stimulus was
given to the concern by the admission of
a Detroit millionaire as a partner. Piano-
making was added to tho organ-manufacturing, and the establishment was increased, until it now occupies a leading
Iiositiou among Canadian undertakings,
t turns out about 200 organs and 50
pianos per month. Tlioso nre produced
by 250 bauds, who receive in wages
about $15,000 per month. The whole
civilized world is the firm's market, nud
they have branches in Loudon nud Manchester, England; Hamburg, Germany;
Adelaide and Sydney, Australia; Auckland, New Zealand; ami St. Petersburg,
Russia.
The instruments on exhibition iu the
pavilion aro fair examples of tho Company's workmanship. An upright piano
of burr walnut is a splendid instrument.
Of square pianos there are two kinds, a
square and a square gram). The former
is intended for standing against the side
wall of u room, and is convenient for
comparatively small apartments. Tho
square grand is finished on all sides, presents a handsome appearance, and Is
suited for occupying a prominent position iu drawing or music room. 1 heso
two instruments are of rosewood, with a
superfine polish, secured by hand tubbing with i it for hours, The touch is
quick and euiy, the tone brilliant and
powerful. In musical quality and appearance thoy aro equal to the best
Amorican pianos.

1 REMARKABLE STORY.
[Continued.)
But the next day, when Heater camo
in to give them the account, which she
knew the old peoplo would expect, of
all that had happened, Emma lost no
time in.making hor deurea known. .
"It must have been a pretty party,
she said, a "conservatory lighted liko
that is always so nice. It is coul to
sit in after you have got heated with
dancing. I wish I could have soon yon
all enjoying yourselves. I am so fend
of dancing, and I don't get muoh, for
Roland does not cure for dancing parties, and at Waltham Elinor never had
time. I suppose you had an invitation,
grandmamma, though you aro too old
to go?"
Here Hester explained, wondering,
that there were vory few chaperons,
and nobody askod but people who wore
known todanee.
"Ellen Bays it only tiros tho others,
and what is the use?" Hoster said.
"That iH very truo; sho must bo judicious ; sho must have right notions.
When do you think nt;/ invitation will
como, grandmamma? I suppose poo-
pie will call when they know I am
hero,"
Here there was a little pause, tor
evon Mrs. Morgan was takon aback by
this question and did not know what
to say.
"I am sure," said Hoster, blushing,
aftor a miuute's silence, "that if Miss
Ashton-would—liko it so vory much—"
"Oh, I should, of course, very much.
I want to know tho Redborough people. I liko to know the people whomever I go. It is so dull knowing no
one," Emma said. "And thon it would
be so convenient, you know,for I could
go with—you—"
To this Hester did not know wuatto
reply; but it was well iu one way tlmt
the newcomer took it all for granted
and gavo no trouble. Emma mado no
account of embarrassed looks and hesitating replioB, She did not even notice them, but nursued her own way
deliberately, impervious to any discouragement, wliich was moro equivocal than a Hat "No." She had been
used to 'lnoea" very Ilut and uncompromising. When she had disposed, as
ahe thought, of this question, sho wont
on to iinothnr which was of still grantor
importance.
"But I cannot expect cousin Catherine to call upon me," she said, composedly. "She is too old, and she is always treated as a sort of princess, Roland says. Aud you are too old to take
me, grandmamma. Perhaps I could
go with Hester. Would thut be tho
right thing ? Fur they nil say I must
not neglect Cousin Catharine,"
Hestor looked aghast upon the young
woman who contemplated them sucaliu-
lyuver her knitting, and talked of
neglecting Catherino, and being culled
upon by tho sovereign of socioty, whu
left oven the Redborough magnates
out, and called unly upou those who
pleased hor. Emma went on quito
placidly, knitting with tho ends of her
fingers in that phlegmatic German way
which is au offense to E-igliah knitters.
The stocking wont un dropping in
longer and longer lengths from hoc
hands, as if twirling upon ft leisurely
wheel. She had explained that they
were knickorbneker Btockiiigs for Elinor's buys, which sho was always busy
with.
"She gives me so much fur thorn, for
every dozen pairs, and tha wool ; I
make a little by it, and it is much
cheaper for her than tho simps."
"Yuur grandfather will take you
some day," auid old Mrs. Morgan, hastily.
"Oh, that will do vory well, but it
ought to bo Boon," Emma said. She
returned to tho subject aftor Hester
had given n further account of the
merrymaking uf tho previous night.
"Are yuu all great friends?" said
Emma, "or aro there littlo factions- as
there generally aro iu families ? Elinor
aud William's wifo used always to bo
having ttlTa, and thon tlie rest of us
hnd to take sides. I uuvor wuuld.
I thought it was wisest not. I was nobody, you know, only the youngest.
Aud when one has to stay a few mouths
hero and a few months there, without
any home of one's own, it is bost to
keep out of all these quarrels, don't
you think, grandmamma ? Roland
aaid thero were sumo old things living
■ here—somo old maids that were spiteful."
Now it is curious enough that, nl*
'though the Miss Vernott-Ridgways
were not all approved by thoir neighbors, it gave theso ladies a shock to
hear an outsider describe them thus.
"Nevor mind that," Baid Mra. Morgan, almost impatiently. "Aro you
going further, Hester? If you want
my old man, toll him not to stay
out too long, -for tho wind is cold today."
"I tun going to Redborough," Hester
said. "I have something M do fur
mamma."
"Oh, yuu must take mu with yuu,"
said Emma. "Just ouo moment till I
have turned this heel; I never like to
leave a heel midway. I want to see
Redborodgh uf all things. Grand*
mamma, you will nut minu mu leaving
you—I want to boo all I can, as I dun't
know how lung I mny stay."
"Do yuu mind, Hester/" the old
lady said, in a little alarm, us, having
finished the heel nml put her knitting
carefully uwtiy in a long basket made
to huld the length of hor noodles,
Emina wunt up stairs to get her hat.
Hostor liiighed a little, for,thou&h she
was nut move*] tu unthuilsnin by Emma,
sho was young enough to like tho imv-
olty of a now companion, whoever lhat
might bo.
"I hone shu will not mako mn taku
hor ■iu see Cathorine. Catherine
would nut be very gracious to any nno
whom 1 brought her. Dear Mrs. Morgan, I wanted tu auk yuu—was Catherine—did Cathorino—"
"What, my dear I"
"Nothing ; I can't toll ynu beforo
nny one. It was something I heard
from—last night. Yuu, I am quito
ready, Miss Ashton," Hester said.
"It is grand tu bu culled Miss Ashton, buf. I wish yeu would any Emma.
It makes mo fool as if I woro somo
one's governess when  you  say Miss
Aahtuii.   I nearly was," said Emma.
"And yuu know wo aro a largu family,
.eight of  us, and wo  had no money.
I am suro I can't tell huw wo managed
to grow up.   It was thanks to Elinor,
I believe.   She was tho only ouo who
cuuld  manage pupa.    And  now  lhey
are all provided fur but unly mo.   Elinor and Bee made vory goud marriages
and Kate didn't do no badly either,
but she's gune to India.   Tho others
were to help mo botween thein, but
that is not very nice.  Thoy nro always
scheming to have ns little of you as
thoy can, and to'maketlie others havu
too much',   I never would givo in iu
thst.   I always kept  to my day.   I
used to say 'No, Boo, my time is up.
I don't mind wliero you put me, fur I
never m*ta any fuss In lhat sort of
wny, us it turns tho servants against
you.   I can sleep anywhere, but you
must keep your turn. Elinor shan't
bo put upon if I can help it;' and the
short and the long of it was that I hnd
nearly as possiblo taken a governess's
place."
"That would havo boen bottor surely, to bo quito independent," Hestor
said.
"In somo ways. To have u paid salary would be very nice—but it hurts a
girl's chnnco. Oh yo3, it does," Baid
Emma. "There is no doubt of it; people say not whon they want to coax
yuu into it, but it does ; and as all the
others have married so well, of course
I was very unwilling to du anything to
damage my chanco,1
"What was your chnnco ?"said Hos
ter, with a sot countenance, Partly
sho did not know, and partly from
the context shu divined, and meant tu
crush her companion with loftly indignation, but Emma was not quick
enough to perceive tho moral disapproval. Sho was not ovon conscious
that it was possiblo to disapprove of
such till elemental necessity.
"Oh, you know.very woll," she said,
with a little laugh. "I have never
been a flirt, I haven't got auy inclination that wny. Of courso in my
position I. would think it my duty to
consider auy offer. But I was vory
nearly driven to tho governessitig,'
sho continued calmly. "Elinor had
visitors coming, and Boo was sn ill-
natured as tu start painting and papering just as I was due thoro. Can you
imagine anything mure nasty? just to
lio nblu to say sho could not tako mo
in! I just said I must tako a situation,
and they worn in n yrwtt way. But t
du really beliovo 1 should have dono it
had it unt boon for Roland. Ho said
it would suit him very woll to havo
me. He had just got a house of his
uwn, you know, and I cuuld bo of uso
to him. So ho took mo, which was
vory kind. It is a littlo dull aftor being used to children, but I have scarcely anything to do, and ho gives mo a
littlo allowance for my clothes. Dun't
you think it is very kind ?"
"I would much rather bo n govern*
ness," Hester said with a glow of indignant pride. This matter-of-fact description of the stato of dependence,
which wns made without any sense of
injury at all, with tho composure of
nn individual fully capable uf holding
her own and looking fur nothing olso,
had an effect upon hor sensisivc mind
which it is impossible to describe. Sho
shrank from the revelation ns if it had
boon something terrible; and yet it
was not terrible at all, but the must
calm, historic account uf a stato nf
affairs whioh seemed perfectly natural
to every one concerned. Emma know
that she would herself have employed
any possible expedient to got rid of an
unnecessary inomher uf hor household,
especially such a detrimental as "the
youngest," and sho was not angry with
Bco.
"Ah, yuu don't know children," said
Emma, serenely. "I have been used
to them all my life, and I know what
demons they aro; and then it does bo
spoil yuur chances in life. Being with
Roland is vory nice, you know; he
never orders mu nbuiit, and ho gives
mu an allowance fur my-ctothes, as I
told yuu. But it is much duller. Al
Elinor's and Bee's mid even at William's, there's a littlo life going on.
Nuw and thou you can't help seeing
people. Evuti when ynur sisters dun't
wish it, peoplo will nsk ynu out when
theyTtuow you're there, And I must
say that for Elinor—that whon sho'i
not worried she does take a little trouble about you, and always likos to soo
you luok nice. Tu bo suro, with live
boys and a husband in business, sho is
worried," Emma added, with impartiality, "must uf tho time. What is
that big house, that red une, so near
tho road? Nice people ought to live
there."
"That ih the Orange," said Hostor,
with a sudden flush—"that is Cathorino Vernon's houso."
"Oh-hl But thou why should I loso
any time ? It wuuld look bottor that I
should go nt once, tho vory first day.
I suppose you run in whenever you
please."
Hester's countenance flamed moro
than over. "I never go-except when
I go with my mother. Cathorino
would -not caro to soe yuu with rae.
Sho is vory fund of yuur grandfather,
but not su fund of us. And she iB
quite right; wo don't deserve it so
muoh," Hester said, flinging back her
young head with that movement uf
natural prido which belonged to her.
.lust .then, to umko the situation more
complicated, Edward camo out from
the gate, and, seeing the two figures
no tho road, Hesitated for a moment,
conscious of Catherine's eye behind
liim and Hester's keen consciousness
beforo. &/
"Oh, -snid Emma again, "thon thoro
(my factions ? 1 am suro 1 am vory glad
grandpapa is un Catherine's side;.for
Elinor said, and then Roland told'me
—Who is that 1 Oh, then thero aro
uwn there? 1 thought sho lived alono!
Ho looks rather nice, though I liko
men to bo taller than that. Mind you
introduce mo; and walk a littlo faster,
please, before ho gets away."
Hester's response to this was naturally the indignant una of walking
inure slowly, so aa to givo tho hesitating figure at tho gate full timo tu get
away. Ilut Edward had thought better
of it, Ou tliu whole ho fuund it mora
undesirable to encounter Hester's disdain than anything Cathorino wuuld
bu likely tt. say. And just nt that
hour after luncheon Catherine goner-
ally abandoned her seat in the window. It was true that ho very seldom
e.uiio back to lunch. Ho advanced,
accordingly, it few steps from tho door,
and held out his hand. "1 am ghtd to
boo you are none the worse ol nur dissipations hist night," ho said.
"Introduce luo, said Emma, keep,
iug hor place close to Hester's sidu;
"wo aro all cousins together, though
wo don't know each othor. I wanted
tu go in at once and hoc Cousin Catherine, whom 1 havu hoard of all my
life, hut shu would not lot mo. Per*
•haps ymi will mention it to Cousin
Catherine. I will qoiiio as soon as 1
can got grandpapa to bring mo. It is
so much mute formal than I thought.
Among relations gonerally ono runs
out and hi, and never thinks twice;
but that does uut seem to bo your way
horo."
"No, it iB not our way hero. We
huld each nt.hor at arm's length. We
aro imt even civil if wu can. help it,"
said Edwatd, with n laugh and a
glance at Hester, who stood, tho impersonation of unwilling pt-litouess,
holding herself back, in mi attitude
whioh said aa plainly as words that,
llioiigh   thoir   way   was the aame, sho
did not choose to bo accompanied by
him along ovon ihat common way,
"I see," said Emma. "I am suro I
nm very sorry I mndo you stand nnd
talk, Hester- when you dislike it so
muoh. Of course, among relations
one understands alt that. Do you
live lieto? I remember now Roland
tohl mo thoro woro sumo gentlemen
cousins; but f am quite a stranger,
nntl l dun't know anything. Hestor
is 'joing to tako mo to seo thu little
tu./n."
