The Director of the Mint csti
mutes tho production of precious
metals in the United States in 1886
to have been us follows: Gold, §35,
000,000; silver, 151,000,000, The
production of silver was 39,445,312
ounces fine. Tlio production of gold
shows an increase over the previous
year of 83,200,000; while the production of silver is slightly less than
in 1885. Colorado continues in the
first rank, tho value of its production of gold and silver having been
over §20,000,000 during the last
yoar. California is in tho socond
place to Montana, with a production
of nearly $17,000,000, against $16,
000,000 by tlio former: The production of Nevada and New Moxico
has decreased, while that of the other
States has remained almost constant.
Texas for the first time is added to
tho list of producing States, with a
production of §200,000 in silver.
The stock and ownership of gold and
silver coins in the United States on
1st Janaary, 1887, is ns follows:
United States Treasury, §186,901,-

Fuels about India.
Mr. Chatterg?e, tho deligate from
Lahore, India; to the recent Presbyterian General Assembly, at Omaha;
lectured last night at the Third Presbyterian Church, on "The Mission
nry Work in India." He is n tall,
digni lied Brahman, with fine features
and n long, gray beard, nnd wore
last night the great snowy turban
of his people. Ho said: We don't
find the word India in any native
writers. The name was first applied
by tho Greeks, and they, "P'tlfink,
borrowed it from the Persians, who'
called the country Hind. Its population is 252,000,000, and its area
is about half that of the United
States, but in it live one-sixth of humanity. The population is divided
into three races, speaking fourteen
languages and eighty six dialects.
The term Hindoo is not a national
distinction. I have sometimes been
introduced as a Hindoo and a Christian, but there is an anomaly, as a
Hindoo cannot be a Christian, it
being a religious distinction. There
are 170,000,000 Hindoos, 40,000,
000 Mohammedans, and the remaining 42,000,000 are divided among
six religions. There are no Buddhists in India, although it is the
birthplace of the religion. Hindoo
religion is virtual Pantheism, and
its creed is,"Thereis ono existence,
and but one." This is the fundamental belief of llrahminism, and is
embraced by all the Hindoos. India is the most idolatrous eountry
in tho world. Tlio Hindoo pantheon
contains 332,000,000 gods more than
there are people. The first thing
that strikes the visitor is caste. This
is a religious, not a social distinction.
Whatever a man's attainments, he
cannot change his caste, but remains
in the one of the four which birth
has placed him. Rules are given in
order to preserve and perpetuate
those distinctions. Inter marriages
aro forbidden; food cooked by an inferior caste cannot be eaten by a superior; particular occupations are
laid down for each class, tho Brahmins being the priests, and the
other tho soldiers, the farmers, and
tho menials. As a result of this a
Brahmin is tho most solf-righteous
being on earth, and it is exceedingly difficult for one of the higher
classes to become a Christian. The
women are in a dogradeel and de-
plorablo condition. Littlo girls are
brought up in perfect ignorance and
superstition, and nre married between the ages of 7 and 12. Tho
social condition of tho Mohammedans is poculiar. They havo no caste
among themselves, but they observe
it toward Christians, Thoir women
nre kopt in seclusion, and polygamy
is. common. They aro the Mormons
of India. The Protestant missionary work in India properly dates
from 1814. Beforo that time missionaries wore not permitted to work
in English possessions. Thero aro
now twenty sooietios carrying on the
work by preaching, teaching and
through the press, and to theso may
now be added the medical missionary work. Tho Presbyterian work
began in 1834, under Dr. Lowry,
and now thore are twenty-one stations and thirty-six missionaries,
with 2,500 Christians, of whom nearly 1,100 am communicants. Thoro
aro 500,000 native Christians of all
denominations. The principle Christian doctrines aro woll known
throughout the country. 1 find n
groat dillemicc in the feeling in In
ilia since I commenced my work
there twenty-six years ago, and the
more I see of tho work accomplished
tho more I am filled with the hope
that India will soon be Christianized.
Pantheism and idolatary are disappearing from tho land, th* caste line3
are being broken down, and early
marriages aro being abolished."—

IMPORTANT CUSTOMS DECISION.
San Francisco, July 25.—Judges
Sawyer and Hoffman of U. S. circuit
court decided a point raised in the case
of McLean against Collector Hagan
this morning. In Nov., 1886, McLean purchased in Honolulu 1000 tins
of opium whicli had been seized by
tlio Hawaiian customs house officials
and sold nt auction. Ho shipped it to
Panama by way of San Francisco.
After its nrrival here, and when an
attempt was made to place it on the
Panama steamer, it was seized by tho
collector. The opium was held for
a year and then sold at auction by the
U. S. marshal,. McLean sued the
collector to recover the opium, and
the* collector entered a demurrer,
claiming that ho acted according to
law. Tho decision rendered this
morning is merely on the demurrer, as
it is held that the collector had no
power to compel the payment of duty
on foreign goods in transit to foreign
localities, nor had he any right to
seizo tho opium.
AN AWFUL MARINK DISASTER.

great losss of life. The storm was tho
severest experienced in that quarter
since 180G. Tho passengers on board
the Sir John Lawrence numbered 750,
tho officers nnd crew numbering 50.
The pasaongers were mainly women

Jngannth at Puri. There is scarcely
a native family in Calcutta which does

the disaster.

a cloud burst.
Great Barrinqton, Mass., July 26.
—A careful inspection of the flooded
area shows that tbo storm's devastation
has been more widespread than reported. When the cloud burst the air
seemed to bo filled with water and in a
very short time the valley was transformed into a white capped lake.
Nearly all crops in tbe valley were destroyed. It will take years of labor to
put the laud in its former state of fertility so deeply is it covered with stones
and sand brought down by numerous
land slides. The reports of loss of life
hare been exaggerated: only one body
has been found.

1 Better Spirit.
The seizure of nn American fishing outfit yesterday off tire coast of
Prince Edward Island may disturb
for a moment the piracefulness of
the eastern fishermen. It has been
a matter of considerable remark
that so fur this season no collisions
have been reported between tho
Canadian cutters and American
fishermen. Some Americans, like
the editor of the Seattle Post, explained the change by asserting that
Secretary Bayard had abandoned
the rights of American fishermen,
and there was nothing left to fight
for. On the other hand Canadian
Liberals asserted that tho Dominion
authorities had surrendered to Uncle
Sam and would not resist encroachments from the other side. In a
late number the Toronto Mail gives
what is really the truo explanation.
It says there has been a vory perceptible modification in the means
adopted for the enforcement of the
provisions of treaty of 1818. Last
year whenever an American fisherman entered a Canadian port, armed
men from a cruiser were placed on
board to see that no violation of
customs laws occurred. This was
not regurded us friendly or neighborly treatment, and was vigmously
resented. This season the boarding
of vessels has not been resorted to,
and an American captain may remain
in command of his own schooner
though he may bo in Canadian waters. A second modification in the
plan of action provides that the
American fishermen may have reasonable communication with the land.
Last year the captain of an American schooner was forbidden the privilege of landing his sick child, and
Canadians ou American vessels were
denied the right when in a Canadian
port of visiting their relations. These
were cases of hardship. A third
modification allows American vessels
to purchase supplies of food in Canadian ports when on the homeward
voyage, and a fourth relieves American captains of the necessity of
hastening to the custom house immediately on their arrival to report
themselves. The foreign schooners
have to announce their arrival still;
but the cruisers carry blank forms
of entry, and these the American
captains can till out without leaving
their boats. These changes are
working in the interest of peace,
and seem to have brought about a
great improvement in the attitude
of the fishermen towards each other.
This is very gratifying, and leads to
the hope that when the Americans
come to consider the situation fairly
and honestly, mutual concessions
may be made that will lead to a
permanent agreement. But if
Blaine returns from England and
finds it to his advantage to renew
his foolish and unfriendly utterances, the hope of an amicable settlement may bo destroyed.
Not AlVald.
Ever since the first tea ship from
the eait de'iveied her cargo at Port
Moody the S.n Francisco Bulhlin
has been wh'stling to keep its courage up, and endeavoring by learned
disquisitions to prove that no danger need be apprehended from the
competition of the Canadian Pacific
Railway. In its last issue we find
a continuation of this reassuring
discussion. It is founded upon reports from China and Japan which
intimate that the opening up of the
new steamship trade between these
countries and the C. P R. is received with ronrkod favor. These
reports, tho Bnllelin declares, need
not disturb the equanimity of Sim
Franciscans. In proof of this it
says that when tire Northern Pacific
line was opened the same kind of
reports were put in circulation, but
the disturbing influence of the competing line never appreciably reached
the bay city. It will be the same
with the C. P. R. competition, says
our cotemporary, snd he proceeds
to support this declaration by some
statements which seem to him conclusive. "When snow blocks the
Canadian Pacific nent winter," says
our cotemporary, "and ice seals up
the St. Lawrence, the Japanese will,
perhaps, look with less favor upon
the new route." The Bulletin h
constructing a creature of its own
imagination, lt is true that the
0. P. R. experienced considerable
difficulty with snow in the mountains last winter, but it was then a
new rood and an experiment. The
addition of miles of snowsheds
which are now being constructed,
and the other improvements going
on along the mountain section will
in a'l probability enable the company to operate the road almost
without interruption during the entire season. It will be no more
liable to blockade than the other
transcontinental lines at any rate.
But the freezing of the St, Raw-
rence! Well, the St. Lawrence certainly is used as a summer route,
but surely our cotemporary is not
ignorant of the fact that the C.P.R.
don not depend on that route for
winter traffic! There is the Intercolonial Railway, and there is tho
alternative route lately secured by
the 0. F. R-, and there are besides
many other routes quite as ready to
receive traffic for the Atlantic from
the 0. P. R. as they are from any
American road. It may be true, as
stated by our ootemporary, that tho
China steamers get no return freights
worth speaking of in British Columbia; bat neither did they get any
considerable quantity from Sun
Francisco when the transcontinental
trade was first undertaken. Koine
was not built in a day, neither can
our cotemporary expect to see tmllic
shift in a day from an old channel
to a new. If ho will possess Iris
soul in patience) however, he may live
long enough to seo tlio great bulk
of the railway traffic between Europe aud America and Asia passing
over the 0. P. R.

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing   Company
IX.IMXTCHTOJ
ON THE 10TH OF JANUARY, 1887,
the Columbian Newspaper and
Printing Concern was purchased by a
joint stock company composed of citizens
"efNow Westminstoi*, to be known as tlio
" British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited." The concern has boon for
nearly a year owned and con trolled by
the British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of Nov Westminster,
Victoria and Vancouver. The object of
the now company is to continue the publication of the British Columbian newspaper and carry on a general printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
thoso whose individual interest it will bo
to promote tho development, especially
of the Mainland. Tlioro will bo no
slackening of tho energy hitherto displayed iu the management of the establishment, and ita patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for their money.
The Columbian wilt continue to be entirely independent iu both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote itself
to the advancement of snch schemes as
may bo considered in the public interest.
Tlio concern 1b now entirely separate from
any other business, tho book and
stationery establishment in this oity
having been taken ovor by Mr. T. R.
Pearson, who will continue to oarry it on
in his own name and fur Ills own benefit.
It is desirable that a daily newspaper
should be maintained in this oity, and
tho now company asks for public patronage on the ground that it is engagod tn
an enterprise calculated to promote the
public welfare. It asks that the Columbian be judged on Its own merits and
supported only so long as its polioy 1b
enconslstt with its professions. In consequence of tills business change aU ao*
connts due the concern must be settled
without delay so that the books of the
former company may bo adjusted and
closed. Address all communications and

New Westminster, Jan. 28, 1887. IHE TRUE STOBT OF MAZEPPA,
Leadlnc Facts In tbe Life of the Kldor
Celebrated In Poem, Fainting and the
Drama.
A portrait of Mazoppa, painted from
llfo lias been discovered at Kief, In Southern Kristin, and is being engraved by tbe
Ittissiuu acaiemlclan, Domery Kow-
kosky.
It will surprise nearly everyone who
icars that Mazoppa was a real, living
man who could sit for his portrait—ho
seems so liko a purely mythical being,
.ike Bolierophon or like one of the Ama-
:ous. Yet he was a real man and eut
juito a Ugnre in his part ot the world 200
'ours ago.
John Stephanovltoh Mazeppa was a
Dossaok, who mado a successful war
rpon the savago Tartars who desolated
ioutliern Russia, driving them baok to
rjro Caspian.
Tiris t-o recommended him to Peter the
Stoat tlrat he lnvitod the Cossack to
lis court and covered him with honors
.11.1 gif'3. But when Peter sent him
.gainst the invading Swedes under
ihiirles XII he betrayed the Russian
.nd went ovor with his followers to the
norny.
Peter defeated them both and drove
.hum Into Turkish territory, where,
earing to tall into the hands ot his for-
nor relentless master, Mazeppa killed
ilmself.
He had beforo this hidden all the
rtrasurea which ho had amassed In
Us wars aad through gifts from those
re had served, in caverns in the hills
.round Kief. The portrait now discov-
ired was probably hidden ai this
'me.
The incident by which we know him
rctually did occur.
, He was by birth a Ojssaok, but when
ei'y young ho was Bent to serve as a
rugo in the court ot tbe Polish King.
1 here his beauty and bravery won him
roat favor, especially with the tales.
With one of them, the wife ot a
ertain noble, he was suspected of too
rout an intimacy and the jealous hus-
aud in revenge ordered him to be bound
nk.'d to tho buck of a wild horse, that
ad never boon ridden. The horso was
Tartar horse, from tho Steppes, and
nun loose! tie rushed madly back to
s uativu country with the unwilling
[dor bound to Iris back.
Tiro Cossacks rocolvod the unhappy
out,1 when nearly dead from exhaus-
,011, and ho grow up among them, re-
jarkuulu lor Btrongth and bravery.
Byron got his story out of Voltaire's
Life 01 Charlos XII," and worked lc
into his dashing aud attractive
u, ui.
a story so dramatic was at once seized
(ri-n fur adaptation to the stage and lt
us jrrcsonto.l here us early as 1825 by
i Englishman named Hunter. He also ■
'us a very handsome man and made a
rcut stir iu the town. This was at the
reus which Is now the Walnut Street
'heatro.
Tho pioture of Mazeppa bound to tho
rso's back, which everybody knoweso
ell, was painted by Horace Vernet, one
'ti.e greatest of French artists. Vernet,
course, got his Inspiration from Byron,
whom we all owe whatever knowledge
ir muy have ot the brilliant Cossack
der and soldier.
Muzeppu's real motives for betraying
otor are not certainly known. Tho
oles, who look upon him as a hero,
'ways have maintained that he hod in
ow the welfare ot tho Polish nation,
id they point to tbe fact that he stip-
ated with the Swedish King for the
dependonco of Poland.
It this Lie the truth, lt gives a certain
gnlty to tlie aot, but the Russian story
ns more in accord with what other.
so Is known of him. They say that he
is led to go over to the enemy by the
andlsinuents of a certain Polish prln-
rss. This would belter correspond with
e lest of his adventurous career.
Few men, however, who are simply
(venturers get their actions recorded
' a historian like Voltaire, and cele-
nted by a poet like Byron, and painted
a mustor like Vernet, and get to be
lown by all sohool boys who speak the
igllsh language, and all thia not from
ry aot ot doing, but one ot suffering
erely.-[Fhiladelphla Times,

rhe Language and Wonders of Japan*
" Before leaving Japan in 18721 could
reak the language liko a native," soys
writer In a Philadelphia paper, "and
11 yet make myself understood In the
macular.
It is an easy language to acquire col-
quially, full of pretty conceits, charm-
g metaphors and idiomatic turnings,
ie written language is borrowed from
e Chinese, although the kata-kana
llabary Is Japanese wholly.
"There is no prettier word In any llv-
g language than the parting salutation

My recollections ot the Empire are

ij's remain a vivid picture. The beau's of IheSuwonada, or inland sea, rival

Sir Theodore Martin holds that "no

is not tlio ability to perform," and that

using.
No doubt. But If lt Is to be earrlod

Ota TOLD AS IT LOOKS IK SPACE,
A Graphic. Ili'scrljillon of thu Flnnet on
Which We Live, ns It Would Appear
to an Observer Well I'laccil for Look.
Ing atlt.
If wo Iraagino an obsorvor contemplating tho earth from a convonlont distance in spaco, ant scrutinizing Its features as It rolls before lifm, we may
suppose Irlm 10 bo struck witii tho fact
that 11-lOths of irs surface aro covorod
with water, and that the land Is so unequally dlstributud that from ono point
of viow ho would seo a hemisphere
almost exclusively oceanlo, while nearly
tlio wholo of tho dry land is gathered In
tho opposito hombphoro.
Ho might observe that tho groat Oceanlo area of the Paclflo and Antartlc
oceans is dotted witii Islands—liko a
shallow pool witii stones rising abovo its
surface—as 11 its general depth wero
small in comparison with its area.
He might also notice that a mass or
bolt of land surrounds each polo, and
that tho northern ring sends oiT to tlio
southward three vast tonguos of land
and of mountain chains, torminating ro-
spoctivoly In South America. Soutli
Africa and Australia, towards which feebler and Insular processes are givon
oil by tho Antartlc continental moss.
This, as somo geographers havo observed, gives a rudely three-ribbed aspect to tho earth, though two of tho
threo ribs are crowded together and form
the Europ-Asian mass or double continent, while tho third is Isolated in tho
slnglo continont of America.
He might also observo thut tho northern girdle is cut across, so that the
Atlantic opens by a wide space into the
Arctic sea, while the Paclflo is contracted towards the north, but confluent
with tho Antartlo ocean. The Atlantic
is also relatively doeper and less enoum-
bored with islunds than the Paclflo,
which has tho higher ridges near Its
shores, constituting what some visitors
to'tho Paclflo coast of America have not
Inaptly called the "back of the world,"
while the wider slopes face tho narrower
ocean, into which, for this reason, the
greater part of the drainage of the land
Is poured.
Tlio Pacific and the Atlantic, though
both depressions or flattenings ot the
earth, are different In ago, character and
conditions; and tho Atlantic, though tho
smaller, Is tho older, and from the geological point of view, iu somo respects
tho more important of tho two.
It our imaginary observer had tho
means of knowing anything of the rock
formations of tlio continents, he would
notice that thoso bounding the North
Atlautlo aro In general of great ago,
somo belonging to tho Laurentlan system. On the other hand, he would
see that many of the mountain ranges
along tho Paclflo aro comparatively new,
and that modorn Igneous action oocurs
In connection with them.
Thus he might be led to believe that
the Atlantic, though comparatively narrow, Is an older feature of the earth's
surfaco, while the Paclflo belongs'to
moro modern times.
But he would noto In connection with
this that tho oldost rocks of tho great
continental massos aro mostly toward
their northern ends, and that the borders of the northern ring of land and
certain ridges extending southwards
from lt constitute the most ancient and
permanent elevations of tho oarth'sorust
though now greatly surpassed by mountains of more recent age nearer the
Equator.
An observer looking at the earth from
without would notlco that the margins
of tho Atlantic nnd the main lines of
diructlon of its mountain chains are
north-cast aud south-west, and northwest and south-east, as if some early
causes had determined the ocourrenceof
elevations along great circles of the
earth's surface tangent to tho polar
circles.—(Sir W. Dawson.
While I was. walking through one
city hospital I
At tho Children's Hospital. '
" I happened to be In one ot the wards
of the Children's Hospital some time
ago," said a lady to the historian the
other day, " at the hour when at the
beginning ot the short winter twilight
tho children had been prepared for
sleep.
"It was a beautiful sight to see the
little convalescents kneeling in their
little cots and lisping ■ Our Father,' and
' Now I lay me down to sloop,' and
oven more touching and beautiful to seo
those who were too weak to rise lifting
their tiny weak hands In prayer.
" Suddenly one poor weak little baby
in a distant corner Bet up a pitiful
wailing cry:
" • I want to go borne; I wont to go
homel'
"Tho words wero taken and repeated
from many a cot. It brought the
tears In my eyes, and I said to the
nurso:
" ' This must bo very hard for you to
bear.'
"'It Is,' she said,' but we generally
expeot to hoar that when nightfall
comes. Books and toys while away the
time for such as are able to sit up, ond
tho other poor llttlo things Ho very
patiently all day, but when the evening
comes, and the prayers, there seems to
come a great longing for their homes
and for their mothers. Thero is little
we can do to prevent It; it generally
ends whon one by ono thoy drop off to

Thii, Association merits the
confidence the Public is reposing in it from the following
FACTS:—
The Security offered to policy holders is
Unsurpassed by any Company doing business In Canada,
It has no schemes of Insurance, but the
well-established lines, hence the policy
holders cannot be misled as to their contracts.
Its statements to the public can bo readily understood, its cash statement showing overy Item of income and how expended,
Its position isnscertnlned annualiyfrom
a detailed valuation in which every Item
of liability in included.
Its progress has beon unexampled In
the history of insurance in Canada.
Its policies are Indisputable after threo
years, and non-forfeitable after two years'
existence.
Its prolltfi are distributed upon nn equitable basis. The profits to one oiass of
noliey holders are not lessened to give
larger moths to any other class, which
method affords superior advantages over
the uniform bonus plan of distribution.

in the Globe, which Nelson would Bell
for $100,000, The Cnnadian Pacific
people, it ia understood, declined to
aid the new paper, but Sir George
Stephen mado an oiler to hand the
Globe over to Sir John's friends if they
could raise $100,00 to buy tho Nelson
shares, for which the party is now
being canvassed. Sir Donald Smith
now holds $40,000 worth of Globe
stock.—Toronto World, This is a most

hospital.
Ooun. Shiles moved that D. L,
Smith's tender for Royal avenue be
accepted.
Coun. Duncan thought the council
was uot prepared to expend such a
large sum of money on this street at
present.
Coun. Jaques thought the tender
too high and expensive and Coun.
Shiles resolution was defeated.
The city clerk was instructed to telegraph the local government asking
for an extension of timo for tho re*
nnivat of tho old gaol.
Ellis & Co's. proposal was then
taken up. Couns. Curtis thought that
it wns useless and inexpedient to encourage Victoria papers to advertise
this city. Twice before the council
had been M bilked," and he was in
favor of letting the matter lie ovor
until a sample copy should be received.
Coun. Jaques snid everybody remembered the special numbers the
Victoria papers got out last Christmas.
Both tho Colonist uud Times tank good
care that they did not refer to Westminster. Ho believed tho Times had
mentioned tho city once when it was
describing Yale and had said the traveller must pass Westminster on his
way there.
Millard Dyer, of the Colonist, said
that if the council would encourage
them in tho enterprise they would be
happy to furnish first a sample copy
of their illustrated edition,
Corbould &. McColl's communication
was referred to tho police committeo
to report on at next meeting.
It was decided to accept F. W, Mc-
Grady's tender for tho extension uf
Clarkson street.
Tho clerk wns instructed to call for
tenders for the grading of Royal ave.

By Coun. Shiles that he would introduce at next meeting specifications

sonoge, Augustine?" asked mainmn.
"Playedcroquet," repliod Augustine;
"nnd say mamma, 1 wns tlio only one
in the game who played honest and
fair; nil tho others cheated," "That
was like my own brave boy," said
mamma, stooping to kiss the broad,
honest brow. ''And why did my little
boy play fairly?" "Had to," replied
Augustine, a cloud of dark discontent
settling darkly down upon the brow
hereinbefore mentioned; "had to;every

The Siberian Pacific.—The Siberian Pacific is to be the next great
railroad enterprise. The Russian government proposes to build a line from
Ebtcrinaburg to Vladivoatock within
tho next live years, when rail and
steam communication byway of Siberian railroads and water ways will put
St, Petersburg within fifteen days of
tho Pacific, which is just the distance
of London by way of the Canadian Pacific. For this line, with the new Pacific Mail steamers plying to Japan
and Australia in connection with it, is
the real cause which forces Russia to
the gigantic project of the Siberian
Pacific. The Canadian line, to whicli
we givo so littlo attention, fills out the
lino of a great circle, route from
London to Japan nnd China and
the strategic and commercial impoi-
tanco of this short lino of communication is attracting in Europe profound
attention.—Philadelphia Press.

CANADA'S COMIC JOURNAL
GREAT IMPROVEMENTS FOR 1887.
THE AIM OF " GRIP" Is to set forth, in
In an Impartial and Independent manner, the passing events of Canadian political ana social life. Its Cartoons speak
moro definitely and more pleasingly than
who'e columns of editorial. In tills pungent, easily appreciable, and artistic stylo
of presentivigft subject, the whole situation Is revealed at a glance. Tho success
of Grip shows bow well this fact Is appreciated—Its Cartoons on the passing ]-.llt-
lcal events of tho country being even
moro eagerly sought after than t ho chaste
and humorous letter-press of the paper,—
though the latter Is equal to that of any
slmllnrjmbllcntion on the continent.
The publishers of Grip are making ex
tensive Improvements for 1886. The old
cover Is to bo discarded, and tho Journal
will hereafter comprise 12 pages, and be
printed on heavy toned and calendered
paper,—every number bol tie so art istlnal ly
executed us to compare favorably with
the best papers on the continent. The
advl*. will bo compressed and more systematically arranged; while similar Improvements will be made as to the letterpress. A now and handsome design will
adorn the title page; while tlm Cartoons
will certainly not sutler from extensive
improvements In the artistic department.
Tneprlcoof Grip will hereafter be$2a
yoar, which is lower than that of any
paper of Its kind In America,—most of
them soiling for 85. Single numbers of
Grip will bo 10 oolite,
Twice u year, at Midsummer and Christmas, a beautiful special number will bo
Issued, tho number of pages being Increased, and pleasing features introduced,
particulars of which will bo given in pro-
coding issues. Tlioso numbers will lo
presented to subscribers without extra
charge.
