Thursday Evening. July 38, 1881.
The genuine out-burst of indignn
tion whioh caused a vote of censure
against tho Home Secretary in the
British House of Commons last
Tuesday night shows how plucky
and manly the English people can
be when convinced that an injustice
has been done, despite their singularly unfair and intolerant treatment of some of their neighbors. A
ruffianly policeman arrests a respectable young woman on the streets at
nine o'clook in the evening on a false
charge of immoral conduct. A thick
headed magistrate of the Dogberry
type justifies the act of the officer,
reprimands the girl and insults her
employer who appears to defend her.
The affair is denounced by the press
as an outrage; the House of Commons
takes it up; the Government, with
unsurpassed stupidity, stands by
the Home Secretary, and the House
thereupon, by the adoption of a vote
of censure, throws the Ministry into
a minority. This swift condemnation compels Mr. Matthews, the old
Bailey lawyer, who holds the portfolio of Homo Secretary, either to
resign or to hang on to power with
the stain of a public condemnation
upon him. So that this outrage on
an humble and modest young workwoman actually threatens the stability of the British Cabinet. Such an
cpisodo might easily occur ih Now
York. We have policemen capable
of arresting it perfectly innocent unprotected female on a false charge,
notwithstanding the general good
character of the force, and the 6ort
of men whom politics and politicians
make Police Justices out of renders
it certain that there are Dogberrys
on our Polio Court bench. But no
ono would expect that the result
would be the overthrow of the city
government or even the disturbance
of a single Police Commissioner.
Hence we areimpelled to admit that
under certain circumstances the
English sense of manliness and lovo
of fair play and the English method
of dealing out justice boat our awn.
What a pity (J 't the honest English
heart will not recognize the fact that
the Irish are a wronged and injured
people, and that the English love of
fair play will not demand justice
for Ireland as it demanded justice
for the milliner's assistant.—N. Y.
World, My 7.
Master Workman T. V. Powder-
ly prints the following in tho Journal of United Labor, issued in Philadelphia on Saturday, in reference to
the assertions in a number of newspapers that the organization of the
Knights of Labor are breaking up:
"We are breaking up as the ploughman breaks up the soil for the sowing of new seed; we are breaking up
old traditions; we are breaking up
hereditary rights and planting everywhere the seed of universal rights;
we are breaking tho idea that money makes the man and not moral
worth; we are breaking up the idea
that might makes right; wo are
breaking up the idea that legislation is alone for the rich; we are
breaking up tho idoa that the Congress of tho United States must be
run by millionaires; we are breaking
up the idea that a few men may
hold millions of acres of untitled
land while other men starve for want
of one acre; we ore breaking up the
practice of putting the labor of criminals into competition with honest
labor and starving it to death; wo
are breaking up tho practice of im
porting ignorances bred of monarchies and dynamite in order to depreciate intelligent, skilled labor at
home; we are breaking up the practice of employing little ohildren in
factories, thus breeding a race deformed, ignorant, nnd profligate; wo
are breaking up the idea that a man
who works with his hand has need
neither of education nor of civilizing
refinements; we are breaking up the
idea that tho accident of sex put one
half of the human race beyond the
pale of constitutional rights; we are
breaking up the practice of paying
women one-third the wages paid men
simply because sho is a woman; we
are breaking up the idea tbat a man
may dobauch an infant girl and
shield himself from the penalty behind a law he himself has made; wo
are breaking up ignorance, intemperance, crimo, and oppression of whatever character nnd wherever found.
Yes, the Knights of Labor are breaking up and they will oontinue their
appointed work of breaking up until universal rights shall prevail; and
while they may not bring in the
millennium, they do their part in
the evolution of moral forces that
are working for tht) emancipation of
the raoe.

Pnrsomia, Pa., July 27.-^The officers and directors of the Tehuantonec
Ship Railway organized t*r*day, with
the Hon. Wm. WinSomaaJneaidetrt,
and W. J. Kamcr, secrotary." The
meeting was largely attonded, Pittsburg capital being well represented in
the gathering. As a matter of fact,
Pittsburg has the most of the stockholders iu the organization of any city
in the country, although nearly all of
tho leading cities in the United States
are represented among tho stockholders. At tho meeting to-day no business of real importance was done,
aside from the discussion of the question of raising money to go on with
the enterprise. Their meeting will be
held next week in New York, whon a
successor will be selected to fill the
position mado vacant by the death of
Captain Eads. Tho Hon. Mr. Win-
dom, of Minnesota, Bays the statement
to tho effect that Ool. Andrews was to
be elected to the position formerly occupied by Captain Eads was a mistake,
as no election was necessary. He
thought tho financial part of the enterprise would be arranged satisfactorily
shortly, and that the work would be
continued without interruption.
ANOTHER RAILWAY CATASTROPHE.
Bloouincitox, July 28.— Iu the
railway accident here ycBtorday caused
by the section hands' mistake twelvo
persons have died from injuries and at
least 30 more wero injured, mostly
slightly. Tho track' was blockaded 9
hours. The killed nnd injured were
nearly nil employees on a construction
train.
THE FISHERY FRACAS.
New York, July 28.—A Halifax
special says: U. S. Consul George telegraphed to.Consul-Goneral Phelan yesterday morning that the collector at
Souris, P. E. I., has refused to allow
the fourteen men captured in the seine
boats on Sunday to go home in the
fishing vessels. When theso men
were taken they hnd only shirts and
trousers on, and tho Oharlottetown
consul thought this hard treatment
and telegraphed here for instructions.
The reply of Phelan was promptly to
send thorn homo by tho first vessel
sailing. Tho U. S. man-of-war P«ich-
mond and the cruiser Yantic aro hero
and aro placod under consul's ordors.
The consul-general's instructions to
Consul George said that if tho slightest resistance was offered to let him
know immediately and he would take
charge of the matters.
THE OOOBWOOU RACES.
Losdox, July 28.—The race for the
Goodwood cup was run to-day at Goodwood. Savilo and St. Michael ran a

on Savile.   Savilo won.
Three Years ok Milk.—Louis
Berbst, who keeps a saloon and hotel
on Market stroet, Camden, and who is
one of the best known Germans in
South Jersey, celebrated yesterday his
third anniversary of skimmed milk
diet. Mr. Herbst is a large, finely-
formed man of about fifty years of age,
and weighs about 200 pounds. Throe
years ago ho was afflicted with dyspepsia and kidney troubles, and was
advised by his physician to try a diet
of skimmed milk exclusively. He
triod tho remedy for a couple of
months and was so benefited by the
diet that ho determined to try it for a
yoar. At the oxpiration of the latter
period Mr. Herbst's health was almost
perfoct. Far from becoming thin or
emaciated from the long continuod use
of skimmed milk, his form was, if possible, more rotund than boforo, and by
tho advice of his doctor he decided to
adopt skimmed milk as his exclusive
diet permanently. For throe yonrs ho
has eaten or drank absolutely nothing
but the articlo named—not oven water
—and declared to his friends who
visited him that he proposed to continue skimmed milk and dispense with
steaks, broad and bnttor and' beer for
tho rest of   his   life.—Philadelphia
News.

The following are extracta from a
private letter of Rev. James S. Dennis,
D.D., of Newark, now in Syria:
"The excavations and discovoriei at
Sidon still oontinue with remarkable
results. The number of sarcophagi at
present brought to light is eighteen
and some of them are most magnificent, and will rank high among arch-
teologtcal treasures. They are of enormous size, and the sculpture is elaborate and in perfect preservation.
Upon one of them alone are eUrhtacn
almost detached statues about thnt
feet in height, without a single scratch,
and of pure marble.
"The most remarkable of themeetaa
to light last week. It ia an ancient
Phoenician •inqphagu, whioh hu
never been opened, and contained a
mummy and a large amount of jewelry
of great value. The mummy, when
unrolled was found io be the body of a
man in middle life, and the state oi
preservation was astonishing. The
features, and in fact the entire body,
were intact; the flesh wat tender, and
yielded to pressure; and teeth, hair
and viscera were all in place. Upon
the outside lid of the saroophagus it an
inscription nf seven and a half lines in
Phoenician characters, and alto one in
Egyptian hieroglyphics. The bilingual inscription of such an ancient
date excites great expectations. We
shall have to wait to have it deciphered
by the savants before we can know the
full value of the statements it contains.
The sarcophagus is of black basalt inch
as comes irom Egypt, and it may have
been made in Egypt by order from Si.
don. The date of it Is, of course, a
matter of conjecture aa yet. It may
be anywhere from 800 to 1BC9 B.C.,
and even older. This strange being,
who has been brought forth literally
from the tomb of the ages to face the
Nineteenth century—who la. he?
What if he should be Ethbaal, 'King
of tho Zidonlans,' and father of Jezebel, or some older Kingwho flourished
in the earlier days of 'Groat Zidon?'
It is more than probable that he wat a
royal or princely character.
"The value of thii enormout find it
roughly estimated at approaching a
sum not far from (800,000. One of
the European Consuls in Beirut bas offered {25,000 for one of the Sarcophagi. It was not accepted, and the
Turkish govornment it boxing the entire lot, and have sent a special steamer to transport them to Constantinople.
" Tho discovery of the sarcophagus
of Ashmunazer, in 1855, just outside of
Sidon, wat regarded as an important
event. It also had a Phoenician inscription of twenty-two lines, and several interesting data were gathered
from it This is a far more marrelloni
and magnificent upturning of old
Sidonian remains.
" The excavations still continue and
other treasures may bebrought to light.
A government official, Hamdy Bey,

the operations. These are dan of

of tho old Pharaohs on exhibition in

How Dndes Fray.
A certain dude, with high hopes and
small salary, was paying assiduous at
tention to the daughter of a wealthy
merchant. He had succeeded in enlisting the interest of the lady, and
was finally invited to join the family
at tea the following Sunday. In colored shirt, high collar and with beating heart, he took his place adjoining
his inamorata at the table, but wat
paralyzed when the father laid quitely:
"Bo kind onough to say grace, Mr.
Hopeful."
Tho blood rushed to his face, and he
felt a buzzing in his ear; but he thought
ef the girl and her share of the estate,
and gulping down a lump in hit throat,
he bent ovsr tho mahogany and murmured :
"A-ah there, Lord; all there, Lord;
a-a-thanks awfully, you know,"

Tbe Next Campaign.
Preparations are going on actively
for the next presidential election,
whioh takes place next year, hut
there teems to he great uncertainty
as to the party candidates. If President Cleveland will accept nomination for a second term, probably
he will ho the Democratic candidate.
He it not acceptable to a large num
ber of Democrats, but there is no
stronger man now in sight. Blaine,
his opponent at the last contest, is
also the strongest man that, has
come to the surface on the Republican tioket. But Blaine is probably
no stronger than he was in 1884.
He would carry some of the disaffected Democrats, and he would lose
many of the disafi'octed Republicans.
The independents (mugwumps) are
not less numerous now than they
were in 1884; indeed, there has
been an increase in the number of
men who will not accept a man of
unclean record for the sake of party,
The temperance vote will certainly
be much larger than it ever has
been, and if it goes to a temperance
candidate the split will greatly complicate matters. The Democrats
have the advantage of office and
patronage, and we think they will
carry the next eleotion.
Tbe Latest Railway Scheme.
The Colonist repeats its declaration about the rumored western extension of the Grand Trunk Railway to the Pacific coast by way of
the Yellowhead pass and Bute Inlet,
the final terminus to be at Esquimau. It publishes a telegram from
the Ottawa correspondent of the
Chicago Times to the effect that
application will be mado to the
British Columbia legislature next
session for the necessary authority
to construct this road through the
province. When referring to this
subject a few days ago we expressed
a doubt as to this scheme because
it seemed to us the present supply
of transcontinental railways was
fully equal to the demand. If the
Grand Trunk, however, or any other
company, will undertake to build a
new transcontinental line, there
should be no obstacle placed in the
wayof tht enterprise. Every addition
to our facilities for doing business
should be welcomed and encouraged*
as far as our resources and the prospective benefits will justify. The
shortest route from the Orient to
the Occident must pass through
British Columbia. The projected
road, if built, will undoubtedly open
up a section of country known to
be very rich in resources, which is
now difficult of access, and would
be the means of adding very
largely to the population both of
this province and the region lying
east of the mountains and north of
the 0. P. R. It would also give an
interest in this province to a powerful and wealthy railway company
whose interest it now is to build up
and populate the western states at
the expense of the Canadian Northwest.
School or Mines.
In a country like British Columbia, whete as yet the chief industry
is that of mining, it is worth while
to consider whether facilities should
not be given for the special ttudy
of mining. All through Canada
schools are being established in
whioh the science and art of agri
culture are taught, and the benefits
arising from these institutions no
one will call in question. East of
the Rooky Mountains the ohief industry, both in Canada and the
United States, is agriculture. But
on this side of the mountains it is
not so. Here the area of farming
land, although more than sufficient
to meet the requirements of the
province, ia small in proportion to
the whole area when compared with
the other provinces. On the other
hand British Columbia is the great
mining province of the Dominion,
and our vast fields of mineral wealth
have not yet been opened. We are
standing yet on the margin of an
unexplored region where proofs of
fabulous richness are abundantly
visible, but hitherto the difficulties
interposed by nature and the lack
of capital have prevented satisfactory development These natural
barriers, set up by nature to protect
her treature honse, are being taken
down one by one, and men of capital are yielding to the enticements
presented by solid facta and are
ready to put their money into mining enterprises. But after all there
ia abundant room for expansion in
thii direction, and it is of importance that the riches concealed in
the bosom of mother earth should
be yielded up to the use of her children. There are thousands of peo
pie in the province who would undertake to explore for the precious
metals il they understood the science of mining. There are hundreds now engaged in prospecting
whose chances of success would be
infinitely better if their operations
'were conducted on proper methods,
of which they know little er nothing. In New Zealand schools of
mines have, been established, and
the renuIU JW tikalj to be very important,   fbty are not government
institutions,.but nro aided by the
government, which supplies them
with valuable instruments and materials necessary for tho study of
practical mining. . We hopo the
importance of this matter will be
sufficient to recommend it to the
serious attention of the minister of
mines, and that somo movement
may bo made towards giving to
thoso who desire it a practical
knowledge of the art of successful
mining.

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
ON THE 10TH OF JANUARY, 1887,
the Colombian Newspaper and
Printing Concern was purchased hy a
joint stock company composed of citizens
cf New Westminster, to be known as the
"British Columbian ' Printing Co,,
Limited," The concern has been for
nearly a year owned and controlled by
the British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of New Westminster,
Viotoria and Vancouver. The object of
tho new company is to continue the pub*
lkration of the Bhiiisu Columbian news-
paper and carry on a general printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
those whose individual interest tt will be
to promote the development, especially
of the Mainland. There will be no
slackening of tho energy hitherto dis*
played in the management of the establishment, and ita patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for their money.
The Columbian will continue to be entirely independent in both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote itself
to the advancement of snch schemes as
may be considered in the publio Interest,
The concern ts now entirely separate from
any other business, the book and
stationery establishment in this city
having been taken over by Mr. T. E.
Pearson, who will continue to carry It on
in his own namo and for his own benefit.
It Is desirable tbat a dally newspaper
ahonld be maintained In this oity, and
the new company asks for publio patron-
age on the ground that It is engaged In
an enterprise calculated to promote the
public welfare. It asks that the Colombian be judged on lta own merits and
supported only so long as lta polioy Is
enconslstt with Its professions. In consequence of this business change all ao
counts dug tho concern must be settled
without delay ao that the books of tha
former company may be adjusted and
dosed. Address all communications and;
remittances to

Like one, Uat Coqhln't Catch Her.      ■
"I.was one day out n-flahing," said-
an old salt to a London newspaper man,
"In about three fathoms of water.
"Itwas a cold October day, the water
very quiet.  There was codlings, whitings, poutlngs and the like of. suoh flsh
to catch In plenty, and I .rowed fut to
see If I could aim a shlllln'.   .-m-       f
"Well,»when I came .to'the place
where I reckoned the toh was, I threw-
In my oaw, rloltedjlupmj boat's anchor i
and chucked it overboaio;. -'
" Guess my surprise and annoyance
when I found that some one had been
and gone and out the cable close to
where lt was made fast In the boat. It
was the doing ot some boys, I suppose;
but, anyways, the anohor took .the
cable, and away went the wholo consarn.
" It was a new tope, and I had no
notion of losing It and ny llttlo anchor
as well; so I took a fishing line, put
some extra welgEs upon It, and so-
cured the other end to a little cork
fender, with which I buoyed the Boot,
end then rowed home again (or the loan
of a creep.
" A creep, I may tell ye, Is a contrivance for sweeping the bottom>of«tho
waterwlth, to bring up anything ye may
have lost -r» '-- «* »
" Well, I got tho loan: of one, and
called to Jimmy Dadds, a oHSp of about
18 years old, to come out and* give me a
hand, promising him half a pint. We -
rowed out/came to the place, and he
began to row-fluletly, whjlo I ohuoked
the creep over.
"It hadn't been down-tworminutes
when lt came., across • something.that
felt soft  It wasn'tto be pulled up easy.
The hold of It anohbrefftho boat A »-"
" > What the blazes 'havo*wo hooked
here I' says I to Jimmy, feeling whatever.
ltwas wobbling, as it might be, upon
the oreep, and yet refusing to dome up,
"' Come and len's a hand.'
11 Ha got up, laid hold of tho line,
and hauled with me.  What was coming
ire couldn't Imagine.
"The feel, I tell ye, was quite
alng'lar. It wasn't like a piece of
wreck; lt wasn't like.a fish; ft wasn't
like being foul of a rock. There was a
kind ol swaying and softness about It,
as If the object was alive and was holding onto prevent being drawed up.
"• Haul I' says L.;
"We bent our backs, and started ths
object out of Its moorings below; and
what d'ye think came up?
" Why, sir, there popped half out ot
water the beautlfullest female as ever
ye set eyes oni She looked right at
us, and I never see suoh a smile as she
had.
"She seemed to be. covered with
jewels, and her black haHwas all wreathed about with seaweed.' She had one
arm raised out ot water, and this was
stretched out to us as If sho entreated
us to leave her alone.
" Jim, who was tho most Ignorant
foolot a lad that ever I met at sight
of her gives a soreeoh and tumbles
right backwards Into the bottom ot the
boat.
" His falling threw tho line out ot
my hand. The woman disappeared, and
when I hauled up the oreep tor her
again the Irons came up naked.
" I own I was a bfir seared myself,
but not so alarmed that I wasn't anxious
to go on creeping for her again. But
Jimmy refused to hate anything more to
do with lt, He said no; he'd come
out to sweep tor an anchor, hs didn't
mat no dealings with apparitions. As
to the half-pint, I might drink It myself. What he required was to bs put
whore.
"However, I wasn't going to leave
without my anchor, so I gets the boat
Into position again, and at the first
throw ot the creep I brings up the oablo.
I then rowed Jimmy ashore, where,
meeting a oouple of men, I tells them
of the apparition that came up, and Invitee them to oomeout and try lt another
sight could be got of her.
"Well, they consented, but though I
could have swore we swept ovor th*
place twenty times we never hooked on
to the object It got talked about, and
others tried, but fo no purpose.
"Jimmy's yam made people believe lb
was a mermaid. Fact Is, he wss In suoh
a state of f unk,(he saw a good deal more
than I did, or that any other man that
had'nt lost his head would.
"He said she motioned with her hand,
as though to drive us away, and that
her eyes sparkled. I couldn't deny my
self that she looked as If hor dress wag
coated with towels and pearls, at least
as much ot her dress is I could see;
and there's no denying, also, that her
hair was a beautiful blaok, and as shs
rose to the surface, looked to bo floating
and filling under the seaweed that hung
about her hair so gracefully you might
ha' swore It wu hersweetheart's doing."
" But lt wasn't a mermaid, of course,"
said I.
"Well, I dun no, I'm sure," he an-
Hwcrod
"The newspapers said," exclaimed
another man, "that lt must ha' been a
ship's figurehead."
"Aye," said another seaman, with
some little show ot resentment, aa
, though refuting an argument that annoyed him, "It's all very fine saying lt
i might have been a figurehead. But why
was tt never oome across again? How
was It that me and the score ot others
who tried for It never could hook lt?
* I'm not going tor to say that she
was alive, for I ain't such a fool as Jimmy; but neither are ye going to get me
to believe that; the smiling, beautiful
figure as rose up glittering with Jewels
was a carvuV out ot wood, and so I tells
o. What lt was I dun no, but I do
row what ltwarn't."
And, aftor tbls wife speech, looking
very gravely at me, hs filled his pips
afresh and sat smoking thoughtfully.

Optional CMlltUs.
Optional civilities, such as saying to
one's inferior, " Do not stand without
your hat" to one's equal, "Do not
rise, I beg of you," "Do not oome out
In the rain to put me In my carriage,"
naturally occur to the kind-hearted, out
they may be cultivated.
A husband In France moves out an
casy-ohalr for his wife, and sets a footstool for every lady. He hands her the
morning paper, he brings a shawl If
there ts danger of a draught, he kisses
her band When ho comes In, and tries
to make himself agreeable to her
In ths matter ot these little optional
civilities.   I
It has the moat charming effect upon
all domestlo lite, and we find a curious
allusion to the politeness observed by
French sons towards their mothers ami
fathers in one of Uollore'B comedies,
whore a prodigal son observes to ills

"Fray, sir,take a chair, you coull

BOHDEB SCENES.-
Graphic and Lively Description of Sights
on the Mexican Frontier.
The Bio Grande Is about ono hundred
yards wide at Laredo, good, dear water
ilowlng ovor a hnrtl clay stone bottom,
and can be forded on horsobaok In many
places,- It is only navlgablo for small
boats, from Brownsville down.
Tho high i nnks on either side are
thick set with Mexican Jaoals, or adobe
' .ouses. There rr.ro built of large mud
, doli which hats been dried m the sun.
They have dirt floors and straw roofs,
and, tn many crises, no ohlmneys or
windows.
There are, also, cave-dwellers who
dig circular pits in the side of tho river
bank, and pass a life of contentment In
them.
Down by tho water's edge a novel
soene Is presented. Women and ohildren, barefooted and bareheaded, are
Boated on the rooks washing clothes In
the cold water.
Other women have tall, wide-mouthed,
sldo-handlod Jars filled with hominy,
from which they aro rinsing out tho lye
and u.8lroa, and tho men aro hauling
water on donkey carts. Thoso who have
not the cart, rig a barrel after tho fashion of a roller, 1111 It with water, then
hitch n donkoy to It by moans of rawhide rope traces, and thus roll away a
dally supply. Thoso still loss favored
trudge up tho hill with two bucket) of
wator suspended from tho end. of a
pole, and balance.! across tho shoulders.
Leaving tho river sldo .we pass up
Into Ino city of Nuuvo Laredo, whioh Is
In the State of Tenianlipas.
It Is Sunday morning, yet all the
Stores, .eating houses, saloons, gambling
places and cock-pits are open to tho public. At this Bonson of tho ye.rr (February), chicken fighting on Sundays scrims
to be tho most popular amusement.
LaLor on, bull lights will be the chief
entertainment every Sunday afternoon.
There is a large arena in the suburbs of
the city, where tho publlo gather to witness tho Boml-savage entertainment.
Though strongly condemned by citizens in the United States, yet, when they
como here, most Americans take In the
bull-fight at the first opportunity, regardless of the day, and many ot
them beoome quite regular patrons
thereafter.
On the stroet at one corner, In a very
publlo place, we see an old, blind beggar, on his knees praying in a very
loud voice, whllo his hand Is extended
for alms. Ho prays loud and long for
all who will givo.
Tbero are scores ot peddlers passing,
With a stool under the arm and a wide,
flat basket on their heads. They may
be heard in evory part of the oity crying, " pan, lacho, oarne, tortillas dulco,
tamales," meaning bread, milk meat,
corn-cakes aud candy. Tho " tamales "
Is a mixture of corn-meal, moat and
red popper, cooked in corn-shucks.
The most popular dish Is " chle con-
carnle," made of equal parts ot hashed
meat and red pepper, with sufficient
water to mix them.
Fussing on wo see pack donkeys
loaded with wood, vegetables, water,
hay, and, in fact, anything in the way
ot burden. They havo no bridles, yet
are easily guided by a manor boy who
follows un behind and goads them right
or left with a short stick.
Almost every family keeps a donkey,
and, In a small town, whore they all
bray for thoir breukfast at tho samo
time, other creatures may as well keep
silent They are, tu a measure, tho
household canaries ot Mexico, and
If not fed well are sure to sing for
you.
Next we meet a Mexican cow-boy.
He has on a wldo, richly embroidered
sombrero, a buckskin suit, a pair ot
large spurs, a woolen blanket behind
the saddle, and a long, horsehair lariat
around tho horn ot the saddle. He Is
going In a lope on a wild mustang.
Wo also meet a number of cumbersome ox-carts drawn by three yoke of
oxen. The oxen pull by their heads.
The yoke is always lashed to the
horns by means of strong, rawhide
thongs.
Though Sunday morning, wa meet a
man plowing and planting corn. Hie
plow Is made ot a square piece of timber, with an Iron point on one end. It
had two large holes bored In the top
Bide, from one of which the beam extended, and a single straight handle
from tho other. He made marks with
this, and drilled the corn In rows about
one foot apart, with hopes of raising
" maize grande "—big corn.

A Sword not Hogproof.
Two old soldiers met on a Kingston
City street to-day, and the first old veteran said to the other, who had been
his chum In the army:
"Say, do you remember Lieut ,
atthe time we were down on ths Rappahannock, 1862?"
"Yes, I remember the Lieutenant"
said the other, "but what Incident do
you have reference to?"
"The time he broke his sword over
the snout of a hog," was ths answer as
he laughed loudly,
" It was Just before the battle ot
Froderioksburg, and our regiment had
been sent down the Rappahannock to
build a corduroy road, a sort ot make-
believe arrangement to draw off ths
Johnnies.
" The ground hadn't been foraged
over, and there were lots ot good things
for the boys.
" We found a pen full ot hogs, and
the boys went for the pork with their
bayonets and killed a number of them.
" Lieut.   stationed himself at
the door ot tho pen to keep the hogs
from running out, while the boys prodded thorn. We got them all killed except a big.boar, and this porker was
fairly wild.
"The Lieutenant had a handsome
new sword, which probably had been
presented to him by his admiring
townsmen. Ho was very proud of It
" One of the soldiers made a lunge at
the boar, missed his aim, Just scratching the animal. Furiously the hog
started for the door of the pen.
" The men shouted,' Look out Usu-
tenant don't let him get out t
"In the excitement the Lieutenant
drew his sword, and as the boar stuck
Its head out of the door gave the animal
a tremendous blow, breaking ths blade
of his sword in two pieces,
" We killed the hog, but the boys
could never get over the little Incident
nnd evor afterward when they were examining a new or particularly handsome
sword, Instead of asking If ltwas a Damascus blade, would Inquire:
, "'.Isithog-proot?'"—[KingstonFreeman. _

"Treatment by Absorpt Ion has for some
time been recognized by Medical Men to
be the most simple and effectual means
of conveying to DlsenNodOigans, "Curatives," but In cases of Kidnoy Disease and
Complaints attendant thereon, successful

Pad. It costs less than a single prescription and is immeasurably more decisive

Medicinal dosing. Worn immediately over

become absorbed by the diseased nnd enfeebled Organs, continuously and directly,
as required to insure In return their healthy action nnd original vigour. It Is comfortable to the patient nnd pleasant In Its

West Shore Hallway.
Practical Route I'rom Seattle lo the
Boundary Surveyed.
Mr. Chas. E. Perry, O.E., who has
ohargo of the construction of the West
Shoro Railway contract for Messrs.
Thos. Earle & Co., of this oity, returned from the mainland a few days since.
He came by way of Vancouver. Be*
fore leaving he completed a preliminary
survey of the construction of tho lino
of tho West Shore Railway from Snohomish City to the boundary. From
Seattle to the British Columbia boundary near Lyndon, in Washington Territory, the distance is in round figures,
100 miles, and the country traversed,
Mr. Perry pronounces, to bo an excellent one iu every rospect. A line was
located by Mr. Perry which can bo
constructed with great eose and rapidity ns can almost a prairie section of
any railway. Tho gradients are remarkably easy and curvatures ore almost unknown. Tho growing timber
is not heavy, and is only to bo met
with in patches. Tho whole country
is settled with an industrious, pushing,
energetio class of peoplo, who already
have fine buildings, well tilled and
cared-for farms, and who report that
they are psosporiug financially. Tho
first section of this line will bo completed by tho middle of September by
Messrs, Earle & Co. It is believed
tbat other sections will be at once
awarded and the work of construction
pushed on with vigor until the Skagit
River is reached, which will require
to be bridged with a substantial nnd
costly structure. The only other
bridging of any magnitude will be at
Nooksack, where the river of that
name will have to bo crossed. From
Lyndon trial lines have already boon
run towards Westminster, Port Hammond, tho mission at Sumas nnd Hope.
Any of these linos oan be built at a
trifling cost as compared with other
railway work on tho coast. From tho
Fraser Uivor to Seattle Mr. Perry
states a very desirable lino can be secured and which can be built and
equipped at figures surprisingly reasonable, whilst tho country to be traversed
is ono of tlie best on the const, already
thickly populated and in a position to
at onco givo traffic to a road. He
combats Mr. Van Home's idea thrrt
water bottoms can ns effectively serve
the territory as a lino of roads, as well
aa tho figures named by him as tho probable cost of tho work. Mr. Perry',
report haa been forwarded to the officials of the Wost shore line for their
consideration. The president, Mr.
Crawford, of Chicago, whilst in New
York a few days ago, held a lengthy interview with Mr. W. 0. Van Homo,
which on the Sound is regarded as
rather ominous. Mr. Perry returns
to the Sound in a day or two.—Fie-

For all dlseascH arising from Impure

equal. Mrs. Thomas Smith, Kim. writes:
"I mn using this medicine for Dyspepsia.
I hare tried many remedies, but this ii
tho only one that has dona mo any good,
The True Piiilohofhyof Medication
is not to dose for symptoms, but to root
out disease. Northrop k Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure, the
Great Blood Purifier, has proved itself
equal to this task. It is a most search*
without being a violent remedy for Constipation, Biliousness and Indigestion. It
is as well adapted to the needs and physical temperaments of delicate females as
to tbe moro robust sex, and is a fine pre*
veutive of disease as well as remedy for
it.
