Tlie North-West rebellion litis
given the Toronto tlnjly papers (except tlm Globe) un excuse for issuing Sunday editions, for whieh tliere
is no possible occlusion, while it entails work upon printers nnd others
who should hnvo the day to themselves. Prompt measures arc being
taken by the authorities to put a
slop to thoir publication and salt1,
ns it is clearly tt violation qf the
Lord's Day Aet. Worn it allowed
to go on tlio Sunday newspapers
would doubtless become n permanent institution, and such is not to
be desired in Ganada.—JirockvilU
Jtccorder, ,
The printing of newspapers in
this country on Sunduy is not likely
to become a .success. In Toronto
the other day a boy wns convicted
before the polico magistrate for selling papers on Sunday. This is a
-step in the right direction. All
Sunday labor, except iu cases of
real necessity, should be abolished.
Six days of exciting paragraphs by
sensational newspapers should satisfy tlie public, and notwithstanding
the greed for lucre of employers, we
think the printer nfter six days of
steady work is entitled to it day of
rest, and lie should get it.— Wood-
stock Times.

this nut is quito similar to some of
the varieties of tlie English walnut,

Tho excitement of tho North-
West troubles lias given rise to the
questionable step of issuing Sunday
editions of several of the Toronto
dailies, it can with every fairness
he said that these Sunday editions
are no real outcome of the rebellion
in the North-West, The rebellion
is merely mado the pretext for introducing a custom borrowed from
our American cousins, und ono tlmt
perhaps as much us any other factor
has had its influence in completely
destroying tho sanctity of the Day
of Rest in all lnrge American cities,
und whicli is in such marked, and it
muy be said historial, contrast to
Sabbath in a Canadian city. A
Canadian Sabbath for Onhtida, not
the proverbial American Sabbath,
is, we believe, tlie voice of citizens
generally in every corner of tho
Dominion,— Whitby Chronicle,
Mr. J. I'. Lawrence, managing
editor of the Kansas City Journal,
has recently made another exposure
of spiritualism. .1. Harvey Mott,
a somewhat noted medium, had
made converts of a number of leading citizens. A few evenings since
Mr. Lawrence made an appointment with him, and when tlie alleged spirit appeared threw n small
jet of au aniline solution in his
face, which had the astonishing
elli'ct, of materializing tliis spirit,
which proved to be the medium
himself. Anticipating such an issuo, Mr. Lawrence had a policeman
in waiting, and Mott was at once
nrrested for obtaining money under
falso pretenses. It is surprising,
that after tho repeated exposures
which have been made of the spiritualistic humbug, it should be possible for any of those tricksters to
deceive anybody having common
senso; but we have known clever
men of business, and some making
protimsions to profound learning,
who became easy dupes of spiritualistic mediums. There aro people
who reject tho Christian religion
because it asks us to accept doctrines which cannot be scioutilically
demonstrated, but whose credulity
is equal to any demands wliich come
from spirituulism, skepticism, or
any other source whieh stands opposed to tho Bible. — Christian
Guardian,
A zareba is a simple but vory
cflective form of fortification to resist assault, though it is not impermeable to European shot and shell.
The zareba is a native light barricade constructed in the form of a
sipiarc, nnd, by the Arabs was made
of mimosa brush, piled with the
prickly branches outward, and built
high enough to make the offer to
overleap them impracticable. The
sharp, jaggeel brandies present a
formidable aspect to the Arabs and
blacks who have no taste for flinging their naked bodies against them.
The great tactics of tho Arabs is to
attack by "rushing," in the hope to
overwhelm, by the very impetuosity
of tlie assault, the waiting enemy.
As a means of checking the "rush"
the zareba has been found very effective, and tlie English adopted the
native example as a very excellent
provision against a decisive charge
from the enemy in open lighting.
But any sort of superficial fortification flung up to meet a temporary
requirement is now referred to in
the dispatches as a zareba. It corresponds in fact to the rail-fence
breastworks and the light earthworks thrown up by our American
troops in the war for the Union.
The principle of construction is a
vory odd one undoubtedly, and is a
very good one in primitive warfar
where the serious lighting is in
liaud-to-haud encounters. In China
the practice h a favorite oue thrusting long bamboo roils, sharpened to
a point, into the escarp of their
breastworks, which very painfully
retards a too reckless charge. The'
zareba has been of invaluable aid to
the British in the Soudan.—Amcri

Tho time is not, far distant when
tree-planters will take the fruit of
forest trees into consideration in
making selections for planting.
Chestnut and Hickories, and Pecan
nnd English Walnut in southern localities, should pay a good rent upon
tlio land for a number of years bofore they aro converted into timber.
Most boys are aware that some hickory and chestnut trees produce
nuts largor, sweeter, thinner shelled,
or iu somo particular superior to the
average. The variation in tho nuts
is sometimes strongly murked. In
the selection of nuts for planting,
some euro, and even expense devoted to securing tho choicest obtainable varieties are likely to bu rewarded when the trees come into
bearing. One of the most distinct
and valuablo varieties that has over
been brought to our notice is the
"Itales'Paper Shell Hickory Nut."
We first became acquainted with
this variety some fifteen years ago,
and the noxt season described it under the above name. Tt is a variety
of tho common Hhell-bark Hickory,
A Scran or Tartar History.
Tlm remarkable swordsmanship of
iho Tartars is proverbial. Their favor-
ito weapon is a long, airvod cimotar,
tpiite dillerent froin that of the Turks.
It is itnulu of tlm finest steel, richly alloyed with silver, and n sword becomes
nil heirloom in a family nml descends
to the first-born so long as the family
exists. When the Inst representative
of a race dies his sword which may
have coma down to liim from a hundred uonoratinnBi i.s broken and buried
with him. Tlm blades of thu weapon,
whioh are boaton out un an onyx stone
anvil in thu ancient Mogul city of
Tuztuhiutzy (thu holy place), are vory
thin, and the wonderful fonts performed with thorn are astonishing. Once
when Robo, thu cousin uf tho Great
Mogul was caught in rebellion, his execution was ordered. Tho most skillful
swordsman of the empire was provided
fur tlm beheading, nnd the Great Mould and his court assembled to sou it.
For a second the keen Tartar blade
Hashed jn the sunlight and then descended upun the bare neck of Unlit
who stood upright to receive the
stroke. Thu sharp steel passed through
the vurtobrm, muscles mid organs of
thu neck, but so swift wns the blow
mul so keen the blade that the head
did not fall but kopt its exact position
and not a vital organ was disturbed,
In surprise the Grent Mogul exclaimed: "What Robo, art thou not beheaded?" "My lord, I am," replied
Robo, "but so long as I keep my balance right my head will not fall off,"
The Great Mogul was su pleased with
tlie deftness of the exeetilinner that he
ordered a bandage to bo tied on, and
Robo speedily recovered. He afterward became a loyal subject, and was
made cashier of tho empire, because,
as tho Great Mogul remarked, "Ho
knows that if lm keeps his balances
right his head will not come off," It is
ouo of thoso curious scraps of history
that are often overlooked.—PUtsbnrtj

liu "British Columbian.
We-lnvMluy Horning, .May «, 1885.
Whether tlie stagnation just now
existing in news items is tlie customary culm before n storm we do
not" know. Tliere is very Utile of
interest to report to-day, and there
has lieen little for some days past.
It would surprise no one to tind
tliat the truce of to-dny is to end
in wur, for there is no doubt but a
very small incident would be sufficient to precipitate mutters. \\ 0
hope, however, that such a catastrophe may be averted. Tho rumored resignation of Lord Dufferin
we doubt.
In moving tlie second rending of
the new franchise bill in the Canadian house of commons, Sir John
Macdonald is said to liavo expressed
himself in favor of female suffrage.
He wits not willing, however, to
risk the fate of the bill by including female suffrage iu it. Commenting upon this fact the Chicago
Current says: "The value to the
cause of woman's rights of so frank
a statement cannot be overestimated. If premiers feel this way
in 1885, they will dare risk a vote
in 189o. They may carry the day
ten years later on."
Not long ago we found fault
with a Sound newspaper for expressions of hostility against Britain at a moment when it seemed
certain she was about entering upon
a great war. In contrast to this
we bave the Port Townsend Argus,
which says that the sympathies of
Americans will "naturally turn to
the mother country, whose civilization is of a much higher type than
that of the ambitious autocrat of
Moscow, whose greedy thirst for
power is but stimulated by growing
power. Russia rules with despotic
swuy and tyrannical power. England is much nearer the American
idea of government, and America's
sympathies go out to her proportionately."
Late arrivals from the eastern
provinces tell us that- there are yet
very few signs of coming summer
in those inhospitable regions. It
has beeu an unusually cold winter
in Um east Times are said to be
extremely (lull. Un this coast tbey
tire dull enough, but not so bad as
in the east, ft is the generul impression there, wp are told, that
there will shortly be a great bonanza
at the western tennj^s of the 0.
P. Ii., and as soon as a movement
begins there with a permanent look
tliere is likely to be quite a rush.
Indeed there are many evidences
that a great Hock of people will
come from eastern Canada, tho
United States, and Europe, to tbis
province during the present season.
Doomed to Destruction.
There seems to be a fair prospect
now that the foul blot of poligamy
will shortly be removed from tliis
continent. A great many attempts
have been made by earnest men to
suppress tlie Mormon system, which
has a history full of dark and diabolical outrages upon law and
decency, but until lately these attempts have been almost fruitless.
The laws of the United States have
been set at defiance, and perjury
and force Imve sat in the seat of
justice. But the people of the
United States seem dKeruiiued
that Mormonism shall some day
acknowledge the will of the nation,
Slowly but surely the machinery
lias been coming into adjustment,
and the resistless force of public
sentiment i.s pushing Ihe wretched
thing oil" the face of the earth.
Some very high dignitaries of the
Mormon church bave lately been
convicted of poligamy, and othor convictions are sure to follow. A system
erected upon u false foundation is
sure, Booner or later, to decay and
fall. The existence of the Mormon
system litis been perpetuated main
ly by means of secret missionary
work in foreign countries, whero
silly and selfish people have been
persuaded by false representations
to join the so-called saints, tt is
with great satisfaction that we
view the near approach of the time
when this curse sball cease to exist.
Honest Administration.
Quietly and firmly President
Cleveland adheres to the announcement of liis intentions contained in
his letter to Mr. Curtis on civil sor-
vice reform. Over aud over he has
been importuned to violaro the
spirit and letter of tho civil service
law for the sake of placing prominent workers of his own pnrty in
offices now held by Republicans.
He has been reminded of past practice! In such things, and advised
tlmt the safety ami strength of the
party which put him into the presidential chair depended upon bis
satisfying the reasonable claims of
Democratic office-seekers. To all
sucll pleadings and warnings he has
but one reply. If present officers
have been guilty of wrong, and the
wrong is proved against them, he
will he ready to dismiss them and
lill their places with competent
men from the Democratic ranks.
But it is distinctly settled that no
competent ollicer shall be removed
except for cause, or upon the expiration of the term for which he
was appointed. The result of this
policy is that many hungry Democrats have ratted from the party,
bile thousands of the nation's
best men of all parties honor and
support President Olovehuid, We
hope no circumstance will drive
iim from the righteous stand he
has taken upon the civil service
question, and we are sure there is
moral sentiment enough in lhe
United Stales to sustain the honest
admiuistration of a most uecessary
reform.	
Chinese Oaths.
A great deal of trouble and nn-
noyance has been produced sometimes in the courts of Uritish Columbia ou account of the uncertainty
of a Chinese oath. Jt is customary
our courts for the Chineso witness simply to write his name on
n piece of paper and burn it. \\ hen
there is more urgent need of ascertaining the truth a chicken has
sometimes been beheaded. But in
these performances  there is really
thing to bind tbe t-clcstial conscience, and the*result is a suspicion, not without foundation, tbat
in a majority of cases a Chinaman's
idence is utterly worthless. At
a San Francisco court the other
day this vexed ijuestion was discussed at some length. A Chinese
interpreter of much experience
stated that when the head of the
chicken is cut oil' the witness must
say: "If I do not tell the truth,
may my head fall as this fowl's.''
Unless these words are made a part
of the ceremony, it is worthless.
It was agreed, however, that tho
most binding oath for a Chinaman
is that practiced iu Australia, and
this form was finally adopted by
lhe court. According to tin; Bulletin, the oath wtis administered thus:
Yelk'1./ scpiuros of paper, about nine
inches square, were produced by
the interpreter, which bore Ohinese
characters, of which the following
is a freo translation: "This is to
call the spirits, both good aud evil,
to descend uud watch over the trial
of "Wong Ah Koo, wbo is charged
with murdering Loi Ab Uow. If I
swear falsely and tell one untruth,
or do not make a statement according to the facts of tlio case, I
humbly beg the celestial and ter
restrial spirits to redress the wrong
done to Loi Ah Uow, and to punish
me immediately for having been a
false witness, to arrest my soul in
its 'light, to make ine perish by the
sword, or cause me to die while on
the sea and before I reach one-half
the distance to China. Tins is the
true and solemn oath, uttered by
my own lips, and signed by me this
 day of the second  mouth in
the eleventh year of Quong Sui, ami
lu proof of the earnest of my assertion, nmy my soul be destroyed, ns
I. destroy this paper by fire," The
witness read this through aud then,
with a match, burned the paper.
When the last shred was destroyed
he salaamed three times and was
then considered lit to testify to anything. In view of the fact tbat
there are some Chinese cases on the
docket for the court which opens
to-day, we recommend these obser
cations to the oflicers of justice.

Meteorological, —April has been
a remarkable mouth in moro ways than
one. Cnpt. Peele reports that tho
rainfall was only ,87, which is 2.05

Sunday Newspapers.— Ever since
tho outbreak of tho North-west insurrection several of the Toronto daily
newspapers have issued Sunday editions. For some years there bns been
a disposition on the part of these journalists to introduce Sunday newspapers, nnd attempts hnvo been made in
thnt direction but hitherto they havu
been frowned down by public opinion.
Now they see an opportunity to introduce the thin end of the wedge, nud
shrewdly take advantage of tbu present
excitement in order to accustom the
public to the sale of newspapers on
Sunday, intending to contiuuo the
Sunday issue as a regular iliitii; after
thu temporary excuse for it has ceasud.
We sincerely hone that tho practice
wdl bo rigorously suppressed. It is
nn insidious attack upon tho right of
labor to one day's rest iu seven, and
no amount of quibbling over tho point
.that much of tho actual work of the
Monday morning's issue is performed
on Sunday niters the casu in the least.
If Sunday papers are permitted it
opens thu way for Sunday trading and
working of all kinds, und thu uud of it
will be that the wage-worker will lose

requested to call the attention of tho

city in case of war. Council adjourned
till next Monday night,
Hand Grenades.—A tost of the
Star Hand Grenade Fire Extinguisher
took placo near tho foot of Douglas st,
on Monday evening in presence of
several citizens. A wooden structure
20 ft. high, 10 ft. wide nud 4 ft. deep
had been erected, filled with kindling
and shavings, and saturated with (ur
nud oil. A column of boards 10 ft.
long wns also erected, the inside of
which had been saturated with tar.
This column wns tirst ignited, and
when it wns blazing onu bottle was
broken beneath tho column. Tho
tlamus were almost immediately extinguished* and the column was pushed
ovor. The other structure wiih then
fired, nnd went oft' with a tremondous
blaze. As suon ns the light inflammable material inside had been consumed, nud the boards of which the
structure wns built wero catching,.1} gre
nudes weru broken, nnd the Humes were
nearly extinguished. Mr. Whitworth,
who conducted the tests, immediately
pushed thu structure over, nnd in a
few seconds there was nothing to be
seen but the blackened timbers. Tbe
test was unsatisfactory, inasmuch as
time was not allowed for thu firo to
take hold of tbe woodwork of the
structure itself. It was extinguished
iu each caso when the light iutlaiu-
mablo substances were expended. It
wns scarcely a proper thing to push
the structure over in such haste. Tu
case of a burning building this could
not be done. We are inclined tu beliovo that these grenades afford u substantial protection against fire in its
early stages, nnd they certainly bave
received many very high endorsements; but the tests un Monday night
weru nnt by any means satisfactory on
account uf the lire buiug attacked
with too much haste. Messrs. Welsh,

Proas Dispatch,]
Victoria, May 5.—A largo lire took
placo at Esquimau yesterday nfternoon, when tho International hotol
was burned to the ground. The dockyard brigade nud the officers nnd men
of the Satellite appeared upon the
scene and workud with a will to save
tho building but without avail, and attention was directed to the roof uf Mr.
BotliweH's residence which was ina
fair way of meeting the same fato as
the hotel. After working hard the
citizens nnd mon managed to savo thu
house, Mr. Jones, who is insured for
$5,000 estimates his loss nt $12,000,
he having lately expended n large
amount iu renovating his premises.
Iu the adjoining building was stored
some $50,000 worth of dry duck
machinery which, but for prompt
action of tho naval brigade nnd citizens, would doubtless hnve been destroyed. Thu hotel wus doing a flourishing business, ubout 80 bourders
residing there. The lire was lirst <.b-
served iu the roof of the kitehoii, At
tho election to-day the wnter loan bylaw wa» defeated by 20 votes.

A Mnhomedun Opinion.
Tlie following extracts nre frum a
letter whicli lately appeared in the
B.inibay Gazette, written by a prominent Mabumedan named Muhdi Ali,
who held an office iu the government
of Nizam. It is important because it
is accepted ub nu expression of Ma-
hoiuedan opinion in India:
"Those persons who call the whole
of India disloyal ure good enough to
suy that the Mahumednns of India are
most disloyal. This I deny; tbo Mn-
homedaiH have reason to bo very loyal
nnd grateful. When the Uritish began to interfere iu Indian politics tho
Mahoinedan powor was broken, and it
is tho English who probably saved Ma*
homedans from extermination by Sikhs
or Mahrnttas. Since then no opportunity has been neglected to promote
our interests. Special advantages
have been given to the employment of
Mahomcdatis, and special steps have
beeu taken to encourage thoir education. England is iu reality the head
of the tirst Mnhomcduii nation in tho
world, but her previous policy of support tu Turkey entitles her to tho respect of all good Mahoinedans. To
Lord Dufferin in particular at the present time wc look with confidence for
a continuance of that policy. Ho
knows the Turks nnd Turkey well, and
since the days of tho groat 'Elchi' bo
has done more than any other man tu
uphold the dignity of the English
namo in Mahomedau countries, liy
his own words in Bombny ho has
shown himself a friend to us, and in
return we look upon hiin as a friend.
"We have read Russian denunciations of England; we see that she is
under the impression that onco in India she will be welcomed by overy Native State, and wu have seon the programme of n campaign in India, published iu Russian papers, in which wu
are told thut Russia's policy is lo strike
a blow against England in India in
order eventually to get Constantino,
pie. The advance of Russia is no
longer u 'scare' or 'bugbear,' but nu
actual fact.
"Aud what is the effect of this advance upon the Native Status and peoples of India '. Do wc look upon Russia as a liberator? No! most emphatically no! Russian rulo means not
unly imperialism, but despotism; Russian rule means corruption of justice,
the stifling of public opinion, tyranny
nnd oppression of n bureaucracy, nnd
servile courts of justice. Russia may
introduce comparative civilization iu
Khiva or Bokhara. In such countries
her rulo mny menu progress; iu India
it would mean retrogression.
"But, say the Russian theorists,
India is sighing under thu yoko of an
alien conqueror, and will welcome us
ns deliverers. Is this true? Again I
say, no! At what stage of the world's
history has there been a froo and united India? Was it when the Aryans
poured iu crowds over tho Hindoo
Koosh, settled in tbu furtilo valley of
tbu Gauges, spread towards the south,
and made subject ovory aboriginal race
tbat came across their path ? Was it
when every Hindoo kingdom was
fighting against tho other? Was it
when the Malumiednn armies under
the Caliph's generals subdued the
north ? Was it when thore was ut
least a dozen independent Mahomedau kingdoms, with as many Hindoo
Rajs ' Wiib it when the Afghans took
Delhi, or when thu Tartars founded a
dynasty; and, finally, was it free and
united when the Mogul Aurugzube
subdued every prince, whether Hindoo
or Mahomedau, from Poshawur to
Capo Cummin, or after Auruuebu's
death, when the Mogul empire fell to
pieces? Was India free and united
when ravaged bythe hordes of fiho-
Ihiu Khader, of tho Miihrattn Peish-
wns, and of Nadir Shah? Again, no!
India has novor buen free until the
British appeared on tliu scene, and she
did not know what peace meant until
she hoard of the Pax Britannica,
"In ordor to put an army of 100,-
000 men on this side of tho Kyber
Pass, or at Quetta, Russia would, wo
nre told, require an nrmy of ut leant
half a million mun tu keep hor communications open. This is, of course,
supposing thnt she hns only to denl
with England. But if Turkey and
Persia, who are hereditary enemies of
Russia, were also called in, sho would
probably require nn army of three
times the number. It seems that the
liberals will have nothing to do with
Turkey, but this I think is u mistake.
Turkey has more to fear thnn England
in India, Each blow struck at India,
as Scoholoff frankly told us, is meant
to bring Russia a step nearer the Bus-
phorus. Had England helped Turkey
more in 1870 it is probable thnt the
Russians would uot now bo so near
Herat. But, after nil, this is a
matter of secondary consideration,
If England cannot hold India against
Russia without the aid uf Turkey or
any uther power, bIio can scarcely hope
that hur rule will he a lasting ono.
Let us even suppose that Russia is able
to plant au army of 100,000 men at
Poshawur, ur at Quetta. Is nu army
of this size, or of even doublo thu number, to conquer India? There are in
Hindustan 180,000 British and native
troops, and at least 250,000 troops belonging to native states, and yet we
learn that il is with difficulty that, wu
could sum! 50,000 men to tho front.
Why is this? Becauso not only will
you uot make uso of the nrmh-s of thu
native prince, but, as thuy aro lying
Idle, you may havu to keep two-thirds
of your army in garrison to keep them
iu check. Cur armies aro now useless
for purposes of imperial defense, becauso tbey are badly armed, officered
nnd disciplined. Why should you net
take them iu hand? Fix tbe number
of snldiers tn be maintained] by each
state, give them good arms, lend them
your own officers, and give them the
Btiiutt supervision ns yonr own troops.
During peace these armies might remain iu the states iu which they were
raised, but in war each prince would
gladly scud out his army, bended liy
ono* of his uwn relatives as a general,
to Bene under the orders nf tbu English commander-in-chief,*'
The "conxtantt/i llml-ont" feeling so
often experienced is the result of Impoverished blood, nud consequent enfeebled
vitalily. Ayer's Sarsaparilla feeds and
enriches the blood, (noreas< s tbu appetite, uud promotes digestion of thu food,
and the assimilation of its strengthening
qualities. 'Die system being thus invigorated, the feeling rapidly changes to u
grateful sense of strength and energy.

to Kngland. through Baron deStaol, that
he earnestly desires peace. If tho proposal to arbitrate the question of disregard on tho part of Russia of tbu convention of March 17th is accepted, a
joint cuiuuiissiou will proceed to delineate
the frontier of Afghanistan without waiting for the decision of the arbitrators, a
satisfactory basis for delineation having
been agreed upon before the Penjdeh
affair. While the commission is at work

England to consent to a mutual enquiry
into the alleged breaking of the convention of Mareh 17th, with note that Russia would not absolutely reject arbitration. The compilation of the Russian

by which the latter will allow vessels of
the former to pass through the Durd-
uelles in the event of war with Russia.

with tbo ollicial written reply to Earl
Granville is now on his way to Loudon.
London, May 4.-Consols closed on
Saturday ut !l(i, uml opened this morning
at 7 for both money and accounts, and
inn few minutes advanced to 7!. The
government has sent au order to Dover
to cease chartering ships for transport
service. This is believed to foreshadow
tbe stoppage of war preparations.
Suakim, May 4. -Kl Mahdi's men arc
becoming more daring every day. Last
night thoy surrounded Lambonk and
Oukct, and kept up a heavy fire on both
places all night. The firing wus, however, made from too long u range to be
effective. Another forward movement
by the Uritish troops is expected to-morrow.
London, May 4.—In the house of lords
this afternoon Granville stated that
Kngland and Russia had agreed to renew
negotiations hi London concerning the
Afghan frontier question, and that
a meeting of the delineation commission had been arranged in detail.
His lordship said both England and Russia bad agreed that the difficulties which
had arisen from the Penjdeh incident
should bo submitted to a full investigation and reference to friendly powers.
London, May it.—The fortnightly lie-
vkw publishes articles by Chas. Williams, its Soudan correspondent, substantially proving the incompetency of
Sir Chas. Wilson and the virtual slaughter of Gordon by his negligence, The
matter is to be brought up in parliament in a day or two, with the probability ot a court martial. Lord Charles
Beresford and many bluo jackets are
willing to bo witnesses.
WiNNirEo, May 4.—The line is still
down between Humboldt and Clark's
Crossing. There is much speculation us
to tho cause of its remaining down so
long. Repairers left Humboldt Saturday to look for the break, and nothing
has been heard of tiicm. Private despatches brought by courier to Humboldt
and telegraphed from there to-day are
dated at the camp, six miles south of
Gabriel's crossing. This would indicate
thut Middleton has moved sonic 4 miles
from Fish Creek. It is known that the
steamer Northcoto was floated off on
Saturday and it is supposed she hns
reached Clark's crossing long before this,
The water is constantly rising iu the
liver, which will allow of the stream
being used to convey supplies.
Nai-lks, Muy I.—The eruption of
Mount Vesuvius presents a grand spectacle at night, and is viewed by crowds
of visitors. Prof. Pabnieri thinks there
ii no serious danger from tbe eruption.
A statement recently compiled of
the industries of the Dominion of
Canada for the year 1878 and 1884
shows a remarkable increase between

1878 amounted to $7,290,000; in 1884
they liad reached S15,18!l,0l)0. The
products of these industries wero in
1878 of tbe viiluo of 332,054,000, and
in 1884 thuy reached a total of §87,-
54,1,000. The capital employed in 1878
was §24,353,000, and in 1884 it was
§30,488,000.

catch cold, hut uot so easy to cure it unless you use Hagyard's Pectoral Balsam,
the best remedy for all throat, bronchial
and lung troubles, coughs, colds and consumptive teudfuicics.
YESTERDAY'S DISPATCHES.
Panama, May 6.—It is reported here
on trustworthy authority that u treaty
has beeu concluded between the government at Bogota aud the minister of the
U. S, in rosprot to the security of transit across the isthmus. This treaty is
said to confer on the U. S, government
certain rights as guurdianship of all
transit eithor by rail or canal across the
isthmus of Panama, with special duties
of protection to ho exercised in accord
with tbe government of Colombia. It
is understood hy this treaty the Colombian aud U. 8. governments will co-operate to maintain the freedom of transit,
against attack or attempts to obstruct.*
London, May 5.—It is rumored on
London exchange that Karl Dufferin has
resigned his olHcc as viceroy of India.
The Globe of to-day snys the so-called
adjustment uf the Anglo-ltussiau dispute
is a poor shift which amounts practically
to nothing moro than a truce for avoiding
a collision, and which will result in nothing but the transfer of the ditliculty from
Gladstone's shoulders to those of his successor,
Brooklyn, May fl.—Shortly after !)
o'clock this morning there was ,i crash
at o5 Atlantic avenue, Brooklyn, and it
wus found that the reof of tbo ..building
uml a portion of the walls hail fallen. A
moment later a volume of smoke rolled
up showing that the building had taken
lire. Hundreds uf men, women and
girls were at work in the building, which
covered considerable ground, having
wings, and wliich extended through
from Atlantic avenue to .State street.
As soon as the crash was heard hundreds of those employed in the building
endeavored to mako their way out by
every avenue of escape, and some who
were lust to reach the stroet appeared
with blood streaming from wounds received from fulling limbers. It was reported at lirst that about 100 girls who
were employed iu the bolting works
which was un the top liner, wliera tho
roof fell in, were killed; bllt it appears
most of the girls made their escape by
climbing on the roofs of tenement house
buildings occupied by '20 smull manufacturer!-; and there about 500 men and
women wore employed. It wus a live
story building erected 27 years ago.
The wood work burned like tinder.
When the firemen arrived they found
many young women at the windows
screaming wildly for help, their retreat
being out oil'. 1 ho firemen quickly ran
up ladders, but the girls were afraid nnd
many fell buck into the flames before
help could reach them. The firo was
caused by tho overturning of tho boiler
of the soup factory on the second floor,
The west wall of the middle wing on
Atlantic st. hiid settled, uud workmen
were screwing it up with jacks. The
middle jack had beeu screwed up too
high, and it was lowered when the whole
weight of tbe wall came upon tbo two
end jacks nnd it fell with a crush.
All tobaccos except the tim-sl Virginia
have a nungeut ell'eet upon the tongue
nud will smart it if the smoking is long
continued, Sonic of them even will
blister it, or ut least destroy its outer
skin ut tii j point where the smoke im
pingos upon it, The "Myrtle Navy''is
entirely free from tbis detect, which, together with its fino full flavor makes it a
great favorite with smokers.

source of consumption mid of ugly sores
is scrofula in the blood. Burdock Blood
Bitters purify the entire system and cure
scrofula, ns well as the more common
blood humors.
A Golden Ontiox.—Mrs. Wm. Alton, of Acton, declares that Hagyard's
Yellow Oil is the best household remedy
iu the world for colds, croup, sore throat,
bums, scalds and otlicr painful complaints.   Her opinion is well founded.

A REMARKABLE STORY,
Thus Mrs. John diverted Iter own
attention and never pressed aqiiastioti.
But it is iinpoasible to tell liojv dosurl-
ed, how silent, how far out of the
world and life the little rooms nt tho
Vernonry looked after tlie notation of
tho night. Hester could not rest in
thorn; tho summer forenoon seemed n
twelvemonth long. She oould not take
up auy of lior usual occupations' Sho
war afraid to moot any one, to he alios-
Honed, porliapa, more closely than hor
mother had i|ue-itiiined her. Her heart
was away, it was not in Ihis pluco. In
tho pauses of Mrs. John's gentle tail;
ahe felt her own thoughts thronging
upon her lil'mcut audibly. It seemed
impossible that oilier people, that even
her mother, una imp scions ns aim was,
■ihould not find her put. And how
alow, how slow were those sunshiny
minutes, sixty of them in an hour!
Tho time of the early dinner came, and
again Heater turned front, the food.
Mrs. John began t« bo alarmed, "li
it goes on like ihis I shall have to send
For the doctor," sho suid.
Heater hastened out asfloon'as tho
meal was over, to escape from her
mother's comments, ll seemed to her
that she recognized somo new kiiowl-
adgu in ihe keen glances of the staters
and in Mr. Mildmay 'Vermm'a gnu as
ha sat over his iiewspupur in tho sum-
inor-houso. And ahe was afarid of the
old Morgan*! who had more insight.
Tho surroundings of ihe house alto-
gather weru odious to lior—unnecyssr.ry
thttigs that had nothing to ita frith
lluise real uffaira and mysteries of living which were being solved -elsewhere,
She asked herself wistfully, whether
it was not time for her to go back;
though, if Catherine had not returned,
what could sho do but cause suspicion
if she went to the empty house'.' To
be oven in the empty house would ha
somethinig—rit would be so much nearer
tho scene in which everything waa
going on; While sho stood, with her
hand curved over iier forehead, looking out, upon thu road with her eyea
"busy in the distance, shaping tliintis
lhat made hor heart beat ijuick," the
old captain- eiinio up to her. She
thought he waa paler than usuiil, and
his eyea were troubled. Ho had laid
his hand nu her shoulder before she
heard his approach, so absorbed was
she in her own thoughts. He look her
by the arm in hia fatherly way.
"Como with me, Hester, nnd talk
to my old woman," he said.
It'waa wiih a great start that she
turned to him, trembling with norvous-
nosa all unknown to tho Hestor of yesterday.
"Ia bIio ill?" she cried, scarcely
knowing what sho said; and then with
a vtvguu 8 mile, "I forgot. Emin.i ih
gone, and she is missing—'''
"It iy not Emma we are thinking of.
Hester, tell me," said the old man,
leading Iter away with her arm in his,
"what is this about Catherine? What
has happened ' Your mother told v.s
yoo were thore nil night, and now to-
"What do you sny has happened '!''
cried Heater, with a gasp of suspense.
"I cannot make head nor lut) of it. |
1 hear lhat one of the young inun has j
»oiio wrong; that Catherine is nt tiio
bank; that there are grett ik-faleiitioim; I
tliat lm went oil' last night •- 1 can j
testify," cried Captain Morgan, tpmru- j
loiisly, "tlfat he did fmt gu awny lust j
night, for 1 was there."
Hester Innkod up at him with a face j
fiom which ull color had Hod.
"Is it  knuwii wlio it is (   Are you j
Mire   he   has  not come  back?   Oh, I
iback!" " j
all. She lias been like thu sun shining
and the rain raining upon both just
and llllj'ut-t. And hero is tho end of
her, stung to hor heart hy tho child of
hur bosom. Fur it will he Ihu end of
her. Sim is a grand woman. Sho
won't boat being deciavod,"
"D-j not say that," snid Hoster:
.'she ia so strong, stronger than any

"you may trust her and mo; Whatever it i"t, it is safe with her and ine."
Mra. Morgan was silting at the window in her summer place: her placid
brow had a cloud upon it, but was uot |
agitated like her husband's.
"Have yen come back to uk, nosier?'' she said. "Wo though*, we had j
hist you, If yuu can satisfy his mind !
with itnvthing you ean say, do it, my
dear."
"What can I say V Hester cried.
"Wo are all iu great trouble. I don't
knot" whieh is the greatest, but 1 cannot tell you secrets that arc not mine.
Dear Mr.-!. Morgan, toll 'he captain su.
Whatever I know it is by accident.
I think I sball die with anxiety and
suspense, but there is nothing I can
say."
"My dear, yon will not die, you will
live to be anxious many another day,
Rowley, my old man- you hear tho
child. Wc must not ask her another
question. Wait, as you liavo waited
many a time before, lt is all in the
Lord's hands."
The old man was wiping tiio moisture
from his forehead: lio had seated himself as soon aa he entne in; his old
limbs wero shaking tinder hiin; his
largo, colorless hands shook, holding
his handkerchief.
"Mary," he said, "if it is my flosh
and blood that has brought this disturbance into tho olaoe, that has seduced hor boy und brought down ruin
on hor house, how am I to lift my
hoad again T
Tho old lady lookod at him with
pathetic eyes, iu which thore was a
Kiill'ering as acute as his own, softened
aud mnde almost bright by tho pntionco
and calm that wore habitual to her.
"Rowley, wo are nut thinking of
Catherino, wc are thinking of ourselves," she said.
And then there was a pause. It
seetued to Hestur that her own Woken-
heartedncss was a sort uf child's pas-
nion iu comparison.   Sho aaid humbly,
"Will you toll me whnt yon are
afraid ofl There is nobody blamed
but one. I don't know if that is any
comfort to you, Captain Morgan."
"And tbo nno is hor boy, tho apple
nf her oyo, the only ono that she "
trusted, hor choice out of all tho
world," tho old lady said. "Oh hi
silent, bo silent, my old mat)! What is
yonr pride to that? I would rather 1
had a share of the burden—1 wmild
like to he suffering with hor." Tlio
tours stood in thn deep wells of tlioso
old oyes, which had wept so much.
She was past weeping now. "Tho
Lord forgive him and bring hiin back,"
she said.
"You mean punish him, you mean
give him over to the powers of darkness that ho belongs to! What docs
ho deserve—u man that has used a
woman like tliat ?"
"I am not asking what ho deserves.
I will toll you what lie would got if ho
woultl comeback. Pardon!" Baid tho
old wonmn with a sob, Instinctively
putting out hor old soft bauds.
"I am not for pardon,'' said the captain vehemently, his head moving in
hie agitation, hia hands shaking. "J

"Ub, Captain Morgan, do not say
io. Cannot Heaven, cannot God, deliver from everything?" cried Hester,
with a Bense of horror.
"Ay, iu a way that He uses always
at the ond—by death. At least we
think death will do that for us, but it
is only a guess even then. How otherwise?" snid the old man, raising his
dim old eyes beneath their heavy lids,
"What is done cannot bo undone. If
the boy were to bo touched with compunction too late and como back, even
that would not restore the past."
"Why not?" alio said, "why not?
Wo could forgive him." It was the
first acknowledgment she had made of
any share in the catastrophe,
"Forgive him I You speak as if that
could change anything! What is your
forgiveness? Yonseuin to think it is a
thing, uot so many words," Then
after they had gone" a littlo while in
silence the old man burst forth again.
"You couldtorgive him! A man wants
not forgiveness, but to mako up for his
sins. You think il is liko giving him
a fortune to give him your pardon, as
if ho could set up again and make a
new beginning upon that. Forgivj-
nesa may save a man's soul, but it does
not save his honor or his life. You
could have bim back and let him live
upon you, and eat out your hearts
with his baseness, trying to make it
show like virtue, But Catherine is
too noble a creature for that," cried
the old captain. "Thank God she has
never been broken down tn that!'1
This torrent of words overwhelmed
Heater; lhey had turned into the qutot
road again, and Ihe girl fell into a low
sobbing and weupitig as sho Went. Who
was too much overstrained to be aide
to control herself. Yet ber heart
struggled against this sentence.
"If you lovo any one is it only while
he is good ?' bIio said. "Is it noblo to
cast him from you because ho has gono
wrong I Then what is lovo or faithfulness?  Aro they nothing—nothing?"
She know that he had not eonio
hack. Honor had not moved bim,
nor love, nor any nobler impulse Sho
oould have Hung herself upon the
earth iu her misery. Sho felt that a
touch now would be too much—that
sho could bear nothing further. Aud
her companion saw that she was boyond tho reach of any argument. Ho
wan silent, and they moved slowly
along together, ho tottering on his
aged limbs, scarcely able lo get along,
"Soon everything will bo too far
for mo," lio said, with a half pleased,
almost satisfied  nodding of his head,
