The lrlnh Qnrillen Partly Solved.
What tho Irish people were,
what they now nro, how they he-
came such, and how they can he
restored to their former place in the
front ranks of the molt exalted people of the world. Step back in
Irish history three thousand years,
and you will find Ireland then, as
now, divided into four provinces,
About this tiine the northern province of Ulster rose, to conspicuous
preeminence The King of Ulster
soon became the acknowledged head
of the whole island. He was not
only the commander in chief of the
army of his own province, but in
time of war the leader and commander of the united forces of the
four provinces. The capital of Ulster, the king's place of residence,
was thon called Lotbair Croliin,
afterwards named Tara, and now
Kew Orange. (Tara was situated
near the river Boyne, between Dro-
gheda and Stone, in the county of
Meath.) This city became greatly
distinguished for numbers, wealth,
and influence, and its king for power and executive ability. The peoplo of Ulster were distinct from all
the rest, in race, religion and enterprise. They were called Fir-Bahjoes,
that is, the "divine folks." They
were superior in architecture, and
wonderful in their skill in the use of
metals. In the sixth or seventh
century beforo Christ a very wonderful man made his appearance; he
was called Ollum Folio, the "divine
man." Though he was not the king,
he virtually ruled both the king and
Ulster, and ho was obeyed by tho
king, and his authority generally
acknowledged. Ollam Folia's medallion in bass-relief is now to be seen
in the dome of the Four Courts in
Dublin. This wonderful man soon
changed the laws, instituted a form
of responsible government and a
parliament, and turned the people
from idolatry to a pure worship. He
had a beautiful-princess with him,
named Tea Tophi, whom he married
to Eochaid, the king. Ho founded
a large college, the Mur Ollam, and
changed the name of the capital
from Lothair Croffin to Tara; this
name meaning "law," in harmony
with the constitutional government he had given to the people.
A large palace also was built for the
distinguished and beautiful princess;
Tea Tophi, a description of which is
found in a rare and curious old
manuscript, now in the library of
Trinity College, Dublin. It was
900 feet square and 5G feet in
height, having 12 porches and 12
doors. The inside was divided by
two halls running at right angles.
Each wing had 12 divisions, with
16 attendants attached to each.
Here 1,000 guests were fed daily,
besides the princes, orators, engravers, and workers in gold and silver,
men of science nnd historians. Here
were tho headquarters of the harpists and musicians, which mako the
halls of Tara so famous in history.
The harps used in tho hulls of this
far famed city were aftor tho model
of King David's, and have only
Imeu fnuud in Ireland and Wales,
lending some learned men to suppose
that the ancient inhabitants of Ulster were of tlio tribo of Dan, and
thou of Wales of the tribe of
Simeon-hence, a part of Israel.
(Eight hundred years after, in the
roign of Oortnac Ulfada, this famous
palace was standing in all its glory.)
The grand old city of Tara was for
more than a thousand years the
capital of Ireland, and moro than
this: What Jerusalem was to the
pure worship of the God of Israel,
so was Tara to the true worshippers
of Jehovah throughout the world.
Indeed Tara was the capital of the
religious world, a capital on whose
throne sat to rule and reign 142
monarchs of the Fir-llalijo, supposed
by some to bo of tho tribo of Dun.
(That tha ancient inhabitants of
Ulster were of laraelitish extinction thore can bo little doubt, ns
thousands of words in the Irish and
Hebrew languages aro alike.) My
next will be on the downfall of the
Irish people, and tho means by
which it was effected.
Wm. Kkxt, M. D.
.Irnny Mail's KoMaaee.
Jenny Lind's husband, Otto CJolcl-
schmidt, though he is quite bald, is
fifteen years younger than his wife.
The story of their marriage is a romantic one nnd littlo known. During her travels through America, Sir
Julius Benedict, lirr accompanist,
wus obliged suiKienly to return to
England, and then sho remembered
n poor young Qcrtimn musician she
had met the year before, and sent
for him at once to supply Sir Julius'
place. Tt was not long before the
young musician was violently in
lovo with tire prima donna, but, being poor and unknown and so much
her junior, he had no hope of any
success. Finally he became so unhappy he resigned his place, and
being pressed by the cantatrice to
toll tho reason for such a step, he
confessed his hopeless love, and was
astonished and delighted when sho
fell into his arms and declared she
had loved him from the lirst. They
havo been extremely happy together,
and now people scarcely guess that
she is the older of the two.—Ex.

IHE SITUATION IMPUOVIKQ.
Vienna, Nov. 5.—Count Kalnoky
informed the Hungarian delegation today that the situation is not one that
inspires the least anxiety. It would
bo impossible, he said, for Austria
alono to solve the Bulgarian question.
Austria's efforts aro directed, however,
towards tho peaceful creation of a free
and independent Bulgaria. The close
relations of Austria with Germany
havo -long been known to the world,
and the friendship existing between
Austria and Italy is neither of yesterday nor to-dny. The relations of tho
empire with Kunsiri are good, and
leave nothing to be desired. On the
whole, he declared, the situation is
better than it was in 1886.
THIS HOBNINO'S DESPATCHED
AT IT AGAIN.
PAnis, Nov. 7th.—A dispatch from
St Petersburg this morning says:
Another Nihilist plot which is supposed to havo been prepared against
tlie life of tho czar has been discovered.
In a house near the Catharine canal is
a pharmacy belonging to ono Schuppo
a German, The polico were advised
by neighbors that the house waa suspected. They made a descent and
discovered a number of bombs, dynamite and many revolutionary pro-
claitnations.
The trial of 18 young army officers
aa nihilists has just been concluded.
lt resulted in one beiug condemned to
8 years in tho mines in Siberia and the
other s to simple banishment.
STRUCK IT KICK.
Boston, Nov. 7.—Thomas Maguire,
a workingmnn with four ohildren,
living near Fall Rivor received a letter
yesterday from a solicitor in Denver
Col.;-informing him thnt lie has boen
appointed oxecutor of the will of hia
bachelor brother Barthalomew Maguire, who left a fortune estimated
$3,500,000. principally invested in
gold and silver mines. Barthalomew
left Full River about 15 years ago,
and the fortuno is bequeathed to six
brothers and sisters of the deceased.
A PECULIAR SITUATION.
San Fkancisco, Nov. 7.—A special
from Washington tu-day says: Senators now in city are remarking on
peculiar situation thoy will lind themselves in four weeks from to-day, on the
fisheries quostion. Just beforo they
adjourned last March they declared,
by almost ununininus vote, nnd aftor a
long discussion, thut they wanted no
commission and no negotiations, but
desired our government to stnnd up to
its present treaty with Great Britain
and simply ilemarul its rights. Very
soon after congress adjourned. Com-
missiohors were appointed to meet
with thoso from Great Britain here
this week and when tho senate convenes it wiiljw confronted with tho no-
uiinntiuns of tlioso commissioners. Tlio
senators doclnro they will not confirm
appointments or voto money to pay
salaries ou expenses of tlio commissioners, and thero is no fund from which
to meet theso outlays iu tlio department of the State But thore is yet
another umbiirrnastiient which may bo
presented, what will the somite do
with tho treaty the commissions will
present: Suppose itis n desirable one,
can tho suunto rofuso to ratify it simply
because it snid it did not wiint a ti-euty
or commissioners.
KAIITIIQUAKES AND SMALLPOX.
Benson, Ariz , Nov.!).—The deputy
sheer ill' of this County who returned
this morning from n hunt for hot-so
thoirus in Souora Mexico reports smallpox is ruling in several districts especially Bnvispe. Deaths number SO to
35 por day.
A severe shock of earthquake was

genorally.
HOMirrr    SMUGGLED   INTO   JAIL   CY   THE
ANAncllISTS.
Chicaoo, Nov. 7.--The Times this
morning hns a long editorial on the
discovery nf six bombs in anarchist
Ling's cell yesterday. lb says. The
schemo tn furnish Ling bombs was
evidently carefully thought out by
somo of his co-partners in crime, on
tho outside. Several days ago a fnnoy
soap box \vasbroughttothejail,andjuBt
now, in the heat of tho excitement,
officials say thoy cannot remember who
delivered it. Thoy may know who it
was, but if they do thoy will not say
so until they have made somo arrests.
The box was -harmless looking, and
wns handled in a rough nianiior as
jail officials usually do those things.
A hnsly examination disclosed the fact
that to all appearances it contained
nothing moro than a few dolicacies fur
which such a human tiger as Ling hu
an appetite. Had the polio* and
deputies known that there woro bombi
hying around loose in such close proximity they would not have been so easy,
but they were' in ignorance of any
danger, and they would probably hare
continued so had lt not been for th*
raid on Liugg's cell. It was then that
the magnificient looking nap bin in*
found tuliavo a false bottolb and it
was underneath this the bombs were
smuggled into jail,
CAUOHT IN  THE ACT.
Chicaoo, Nov. 7.—The polio* hay*
just arrested John VanPHntky and
John Vater Rives, well-known Socialistic characters, who wen loitering
around the jail late on Saturday night.
The police lay VnnPlinsky was trying
either to peer into one of the cellrosa
windows from the alley, or. trying to
break it open, they could not toll
which for they caught him before ho ,.
had a chance to carry any design ht
may have had into effect. Rival WW
standing near the entrance to th* alley
as if watching for the approach of policemen. VanPlinsky and Rival an

A YANKEE DUKE.
Washington, D.O., Nov. 7.—Th«r*
is quite a little excitement in naval
circles over the announcement thlt
Lieut. Foulke, of the navy, has married
a native girl of Oorea. The lieutenant
was sent to Oorca 3 years ago to represent the Uuited States government
and most of this time has acted as
minister. He has acquired' tne language and a liking for the people, -
which he oxemplies by marrying the .
daughter of a nobleman belongintr to
the Kine's household. Foulke told
his friends he should resign from the
service and settle there. The King is
very fond of him. He lives in a '
palace and will undoubtedly be made
a prinoe or duke, at least, as toon tl
he becomes a subject of Con*.

Trouble has beon threatening in thia

were quartered on steamboats lying
about about a mile from town. Atthe
entrance to the town stand two cottages, one on the right occupied by *
whito man named Hubbard, and one
on tho left by negroes. Here, u the
troops approached, they found from 60

crowd but proved futile. A negro of
notorious character threw his hand behind him as if to draw * pistol, that! *
regular fusilade wu opened upon tk*

A Wonderful Instrument.
Ten or twelve years ago Edison,
the great electrician and inventor,
constructed an instrument which ho
called a phonograph. This little
machine may be descrihed briefly as
a reversible telephone, It was composed of a cylinder over which a
thin sheet of soit metal or tough
paper was made to pass. Attached
to it was a receiver or devioe similar to those used in the ordinary
telephone. When a person spoke
into the receiver, the sounds were
accurately recorded on the sheet by
meohanical indentations made by
a hard instrument attached to the
disk of the receiver. After
having received its message, the
sheet could be made to pass
over the cylinder by turning a crank,
and every sound recorded by it would
be accurately aud audibly reproduced. The possibilities of the instrument, it may be readily seen, were
beyond all computation, and many
people were greatly disappointed
because Mr. Edison "laid it aside ifc-
liead of bringing it into practical
use. It is announced from Now
York that the phonograph has ju.it
been completed in all its details, uud
that a large number of theso instruments are now in course of construction. In an interview the inventor said he had spent eight
months on it, and pronounces it now
a complete success. Five hundred
phonographs aro to be ready for use
before the end of January. Mr.
Edison expresses the opinion
that these instruments, which are
extremely simple and quite inexpensive, will come into use in all commercial establishments, and they
will doubtless find their way also
into the homes of those who can
afford to buy them. The possibilities of these wonderful instruments
oannot be measured They will
probably supersedo the type writer
entirely. A person may talk to
one of them as he would talk to a
friend, and every word, as well as
the tones of voice, will be faithfully
recorded. The sheet may thon be
taken out and sent by post to the
person for whom the speech was intended, hundreds of miles distant,
ind niter being placed in the phonograph the wholespeeoh niuy be ground
out without the loss of a word or a
tone. For either official or private correspondence this contrivance possesses very substantial advantages.
The phonograph will take down tho
words as fast as they are uttered, so
that i very long communication may
be recorded in a few minutes. The
sheet, or "phonogram," is not injured by use, and may be put through
the initrument as often as it is desired to repeat the communication.
Asiverbatim reporter the phonograph
will, doubtless, find extensive employment. Our best phonetic reporters are liable to err, and none of
them can for nny length of time
follow a rapid speaker. The phonograph cinnot make a mistake, and
it never gets tired. Its record
would doubtless be accepted as conclusive in any court of justice, for
not only must it repeat the very
words it received, but it repeats
them in tbe same voice, with such
exact tone as to be readily recognized is the utterance of the speaker.
ln reporting speeches it will be
necessary only to have one of these
phonographs in front of the speaker.
When the phonogram has been
filled, it may be taken to the printing office, inserted in a phonograph
thero, ind set in motion. As the
sounds lire repented the words may
be ut up by tho compositor. In
order to ensure accuracy it is customary to read proof by copy; but
the phonograph will read its own
copy, ind the proof reader may des-
pense with his assistant. Phonographic reporting will at once put
an end to all disputes as to what a
speaker did or did not say. Liko
figures, phonographs cannot lie, and
hon. members of parliument who
sometimes say foolish things and
wish to deny then afterwards will
not be able to do so with much
success. There are numerous
other directions in which this mar
vellous invention will produce astonishing results. It will no longer
be necessary to import expensive
lecturers or lingers. The finest
lectures and conserts delivered in
London miy be accurately reproduced oni ihe stage of Herring's Op
House in this oity by means of this
little instrument. Not only solos,
but quartettes and choruses where
hundred! of voices and instruments
ire engiged, may be ground out without losing any of their charms—for
the phonograph repeats exactly the
combination of sounds it received.and
then will be precisely the aame as
when they fell first on the human
nr. The phonograph will also be
oome a detective. Leave one of
these instruments anywhere, and it
will tell you every word and every
tound uttered iu its presence. If
yoa inspect your belt girl of ihter-
tiining a rival, drop your faithful
phoiugraph tinder the sofa, and when
yon trewane the oylinder it will repeat everything he s»id to her and

How to Do It.
In viow of tho ngltation in the United
SlntcB Coiigroes of tho subject, of postal
tcrluuriipliy, luul ,ho P™>!ll'lllt'*, that
action will ho taken .upon it at the approaching session, thero eon be nothing
of greater interest to Americans just at
this moment Hum,the telegraphy system
of the BrltiBli tipvernlnent, ta connection with its mallNiervico, inasmuch as
ths service to be given in the United
Btates is to be patternod alter that in
England.
Among the officers of tho general
government with whom I havo talked
6n this subject *to Mr. J. 0. Lambe,
whoso rank equals'that of second assistant postmaster general in America.
He Baid: "If tho government of the
United States undertakes to furnish a
telegraph service-and I think it should
—it ought to have the monopoly of it,
and give the people the benefit of tho
monopoly j otBer*ise the rival companies will let the government do the
work where it does not pay, without
opposition, and by cutting rates in the
densely populated sections secure all
the patronage there, and therefore the
crew ol "** eervlce."
We have only one drawback with us,
and that is our indebtness; we owe for
every dollar of tho original plant. With
no interest to pay tne government of
America should be able to furnish tho
people with a telegraph Bervice at rates
less than we do, and Jiave a clear front
at the end of every -B^Cal year. I wil
tell you something abont tho rates of
tariff charged for telegrams under onr
system, and you can compare them with
the charges in yonr country, and see if
we do not already undercut your private
companies a very groat deal. The
charge for t|ie transmission of a telegram from any to sny pout in our
United Kingdom, including the channel
Islands, etc., etc., is sixpence for the
first 12 words, and a hall-penny for each
subsequent word. In your money it
would be 12 cents for the flrst 12 words
and a cent for etch subsequent word.
We charge for tho address and signature to a telegram,1 and 1 believe that it
is the only departure we havo taken
from your svstem in adopting the talo-
graph as a means of communication.
Ordinary postage stamps are placed on
the telegrams for payment ol telegraph
service, and they are cancelled at the
postoMce whero filed the same as If
they were mailed, at the rates I have
named.
XEWSPAFEB TAIUPFS.
"The newspapers probably get as
much benefit as any other class by the
government telegraph svstem. The
rates for .newspapers-and I mean by
newspapers all publications registered
as newspapers at the postolnce and entitled to reduced ^postage-and also
clubs, news ablations, "bay 1 shilling
(26 cents) lor each 100 words dispatched
after 6 p.' . for the first address, and 2
pence (4 cento) for each 100 words to
every additional address receiving the
same report. For day messages tho rate
is the same, excepting that the basis is
75 words for 1 shilling. You seo at
this rate where a message is addressed
to more than oue newspaper the cost is
but 4 cents for each 103 words or fraction thereof after the initial 100 ia paid.
The cheapest rate given in America is
about 10 cents for 180 words, where the
distance is short and the number of
words sent is great. The average press
rato in America ia, I behove, something
like hall • cent a word, or twice the
amount we charge lithe telegram is
sent to one paper,
nt IBIS COBKTBY.
"Ihe immense advantage In postal
telegraphy in America would be, I
should think, to the people at places
where there is no competition in tele
graphy. Whon the government owns
and controls the telegraph system a
man living in a small place with only
one tell     . _
rate on his messages, ss prompt service
and ss many accommodations as the
one residing in a large city where there
are everso many rival telegraph lines.
. Then there is absolute security to those
who send messages over government
lines. The secrecy is perfect. No one
was ever Jtnown tp make public the
contents oi a message. All operators
and clerks are sworn. It Is a misdemeanor ln all the United Kingdom except in Scotland, and is punished by
fine or Imprisonment, to open a telegram. Tho same relates to the mall
matter in America. In Scotland it is
made a crime to open a message whether it Is done hy an employe or other
person, or to make the contents of a
telegram known to a person not entitled
to them. We have special delivery arrangements and they act with great
promptness,"
OS KAIUIOADS.
"How do tin, railroads operate telegraph lines since the government prohibits the maintenance of individual
wires?" I asked;
"The government," replied Mr.
Lambe, "supplies all employes, even ior
private individuals, in the operation of
telegraph- lines. Except In special
instances, the railroad companies do
not own the lines they use. Ifaapeclal
wire if desired, they make application
for it to the government. If we find it
is needed, and there is room lor it, the
railroad company puts up the wire and
we pay for it. There Is such a thing
as a railroad company leasing a wire
from the government, and It li known
as a sub or additional railroad wire.
We charge tl a mile a year (or it and
(urnish an operator;, but the government has exclusive rights (orthe construction and maintenance of all tele-
graphlines,,evehover private property."

business. When tho patrons of a post-
office in a community beliovo they can
support a telegraph office they torniu-

Then a telegraph office is opened. Wo

where they are the tame, in the smaller places by a percentage of tho income
of the offices. The salaries are graded

CHEAP MONEY.
SUwr Corlincalo. printed ou WetrthlMi
Paper.
Those who iavor cheap money ought
to find much satisfaction in handling
the $1 and $2 silver certificates. They
are the best illustration of cheap money
that we can cite. The paper on which
these certificates are printed may be
useful for some purposes, but certainly
not for the one to which is has been
put.
Complaints are general all over tho
country relative to the disgraceful appearance of the silver certificates of the
smaller denominations. They look
worse than a poor counterfeit, and havo
been rejected time and time again us
counterfeits. They remind us oi the
shoddy clothing furnished our army
during the late unpleasantness. They
look worn out before they are worn at
all.
iSouie of the certificates flrst issued
woro turned out while they were green,
and they are to disreputable as to he
almost beyond redemption, But the
entire issue is printed on paper so poor
that a corner grocery would not use it to
wrap cheese in. This is not a nice
thing to say about Uncle Sam's money,
hut the worst of it is, it is true. Everybody who has bandied the certificates
will coincide with us in saying that
overy $1 and $2 silver certificate outstanding should be called in and new
certificates printed on good paper issued
in their stead. These certificates havo
heen in circulation only a lew months,
yet they present a worse appearance
than the legal tender notes which havo
heen in circulation (or twenty years or
more.
The policy o( tho Government with
reference to the making ol contracts for
supplying paper for notes wo think is
very unwise. The system of making
new contracts every year prevents and
discourages the making of first-class
paper for Government use. No man
will risk the money necessary to perfect
machinery and plant for making a class
ot paper to be used exclusively by llio
Govornment and not be assured that
his contract will not expire almost as
soon as he has his machinery in working order.
A simple business proposition is involved In this matter. The Government wants a first-class distinctive pnper
which nobody else shall be nllorve.l ,b
use for any purpose whatever, it wants
u paper that cannot lie countei'i'eite.l
and that will be durable. Much a paper
can be produced only nfter long and
often expensive experiment. To produce it in quantities sufficient to meet
the requirements of the Government nn
extensive and expensive plant is necessary. What does the Government otter
us an inducement for such an outlay of
labor and money? Simply a contract
for one year.
If Congress will adopt a distinctive
class of paper and permit a contrart to
be made covering a reasonable perio-1,
all difficulty in securing just what tlio
Government wants will be obvintc.l.
Then can the manufacturer be held
strictly to hit contract, and good faith
on the part of the contractor' will be
insured by the very duration of his
contract.
The Bank of England for ovor a century has obtained its supply of bank
note paper irom one family, and ouly
once, we believe, has this paper ever
been successfully counterfeited. Far
better would it be (or our Government
to adopt eome auch plan as this than to
have its notes printed on such paper as
is now being circulated as money.
The Easter Island Images.
Lieut. Stone, who secured the prehistoric stone image from Krister island
(or the SmitiiBontan institution while
attached to the Mohican, stated to a
reporter that the image, which Is now
on its way here, is about 8 feet high 4
feet wide and 3 feet thick, lt is roughly carved or hewed. A head of another
image wit also secured, and some of
the officers obtained by purchase o her
curiosities, which could not be obtain <l
elsewhere, which the Mnithsirriin will
firobnbly take off their lunula. The
uiniftrB, he said, are scattered nil over
the island, although many of tliem hnve
been thrown irom their peileslrils nn t
broken. It was customary fnr llie natives to erect them over the com iteries.
They would bury their'deuil in eell-i
with stone walls on three sides und
with an inclined wall of earth in the
rear. They would cover over the burial cells aud iorm a top of flagstones to
the platform on which would oe placed
(root three to a dosen images overlooking the tea, according to the tke ol the
platform.
The images wero made from conglomerate stone in tho side of a crater
and hewn with stone axes, and by cutting through a single stratum the image
could be easily separated from the next
stratum and then moved on an incline
and erected. The images are of dilfor-
ent sizes, the largest one being about
70 feet long, but this was never removed
and lies in ita bed in the side of the
crater where the work was commenced.
Tho stntue secured by the Mohican
was iound about two miles from the
shore, It took about eighty men two
days to bring it down oh rollers.. Lieut.
Stone said the present inhabitants know
nothing about the Images or tlie fresco
decorations ot the houses; but they intuitively bury their dead in close proximity to thoso statutes.

I havo used Ayer's Cherry Pectoral
in my family for many years, and
have, found it especially valuable In
Whooping Cough. This medicine allays
all irritation, prevents inflammation from

Damming Up (be Land Sllilir,.
Tho Canadian Pacific llnihvay have
a gang of moil at work driving n row
of piles along tho track in front of llio
spot where the land slides have occurred of late. Tlio bank is not very
hisrh, but the ground seems to be of n
springy nature, which, when thoroughly saturated with rain, flows duwu to
the track in the form of liquid mud.
The length of this piece of ground is
about 250 feet, and it ia the only bad
spot on that part of tho line. It is expected, when the barricade is finished,
that there will be no more serious
trouble experienced from land slides
on the Vanoouver extension. The recent rains have played considerable
havoc with' the road-bed in some
places and and the line is rather rough
at present.
Bevlvlng au Old Dlspnle.
Lost evening two prominent citizens
of Port Moody indulged in a dispute
over a dog which one claimed tho othor
had shot. Ono was a young man and
the other was well advanced in years,
but who still retained nil the vim and
vigor of youth. The dispute occurred
in the railway station, at tho Junction,
whilo the parties woro waiting for tlio
train. The dog shot, it appears, wus
a valuable ono and the young man had
boen accused on several prior occasions
of having done the deed, but which ho
had always denied. When the dispute
was revived last night the elder of the
two boldly asserted that the young
man had killed the dog. To this "tire
lie direct" was given, and no sooner
given than a Wow from the strong arm
of the old man laid the speaker on the
floor. Coats wore taken off and it
was proposed that thoy should go outside and settle the matter. This was
done, but the gallant youth on reaching the open air declared he could not
strike a head with gray hair on it;
otherwise he would proceed to beat
him into a jelly. The elder implored
him not to let his sympathy and reverence for gray liaira prevent him from
commencing the smashing process,
but tho young man was obdurate and
the matter stands for tho present.
A Uliont Been at Nanaimo,
A few evenings sinco, tho' Good
Templars gave a social in Nanaimo to
which, among others, two young ladies
went. While they were eujoying tlio
fuu two gentlemen called nt thoir
house, but of course did not Hnd tho
ladies in. The youngest sistor, however, was at homo and invited tire
gentlemen to stay till her sisters eamo
back. This they did, and when it was
time for tho ladies to bo coming home
they all threo decidod on going to meet
them. One of the gentlemen, in "order
to have some fun, as ho called it,
dressed up as n ghost and concealed
himself in the cemetery past which
the ladies had to go on thoir way home.
Contrary to expectation tho ladies
were accompanied by an escort of
three gentlemen. It was too late for
tho ghost to retreat, so with silent stop
he walked up to the party, when, suddenly, the air' was rent with horriblo
yell, and the three gentlemen took to
their heels. The ghost soon took ulf
tho mask and showed himself to tlio
two ladies, who, strange to say, did
not show any symptoms of fright at
the appearance of tho spirit. A hearty
laugh ensued .at the expense of the
three gentlemen, who now ftiiit
straight off if naked if they know anything about tho Nanaimo ghost.—

Tho annual harvest home sermon in
connection with Christ Church, Surrey,
was preached last Sunday by the Rev.
Mr. Allan, late of London, England.
All speak in the highest terms of the
able discourse delivered, and hope to
havo tho pleasure of hearing him
again. The yearly festival given by
tho committeo of the above church was
held iu the Town Hall on Monday
evening. Thanks to the indefatigable
efforts of tho rector, Mr. Bell, and the
committeo of management, a good
programme was prepared, consisting of
recitations, readings, speeches, solos,
glees, &c. The Rev, Mr, Allan made
the speech of the evening, un tho
Bubiect, "My first impressions in
America," contrasting,in.an interesting
way, the difference between social life
in England and America, and noting
with truthfulness and describing with
a humor which at intervals made the
audience break into a hearty laugh,
the many little foibles of local ideas,
customs and prejudices which, though
not noticeablu to a person residing for
a time in a place, nre very prominent
tu a stranger.' Aiiioiig others who took
part I may specially mention Mrs.
Green, of Linkers, who kindly furnished instrumental music, the. Misses
McKenzie, Matheson, Collishaw, and
Wade, Mrs. Jas. Walworth, of Hall's
Prairie, and Mrs. Wade, of Mud Bay,
and Messrs. J. Morton, S. Wado and
J. McLonnan.
