Society women nowiwlajr. thoroughly realise the importance of
good health in the matrimonial market, and New York women are today much stronger and healthier, as
a rule, than th* men afe. A few
minutes on Broadway, between Fourteenth and Thirty-second streets, on
the west side of the street, of a Saturday afternoon, will demonstrate
the truth of this assertion. Tho
women, as a rale, are freih of face,
erect of oamage, tbeir heads ■»
well poised and tlieir arms *oll
rounded; Their figures are trim,
and they walk along with a strong,
regular stride. The men, on Ihe
other hand, are too often sallow and
loose-jointed, hollow-eyed and fiat-
chested, and certainly butt little else
can be expected when the late hours
usually kept by them are considered, and it is remembered how many
deadly liquors they imbibe.
BY TELEGRAPH.
E«a Baakear*. Attire.   .
Rosa Bonheur has often been commented upon by her biographers for
her male attire, and the idea commonly obtains that it is her usual
costume. But in the streets of
Paris she is a large, elderly lady,
rather plainly dressed in blaok, her
gray hair gathered under a close
onnet; and unless for the peculiar
strength of .her face and her piercing, attentive eyes, it would not be
noticed that she differed from any
other woman in the crowd, except
that she wears the red ribbon of the
Legion of Honor. Years ago she
dressed as a boy so as to attract less
attention from the hangers-on of the
stables, cattle-yards and menageries,
which were Visited chiefly by .men,
and she still wears male attiref-at
home at work. Trousers make her
feet appear small, and she also wears
a wide-brimmed felt or straw hat,
In this costume she appears lower
in stature and resembles a remarkably well-preserved middle-aged man.

Visiting Heine one evening, when
he was just dictating a letter to his
seoretary, I asked him to whom he
was writing. He replied, "To my
mother." "Is she still alive, the old
lady who lives by the Dammthurt"
'Oh, yes," said he, "it is true she
is old, siok tnd weak, but iM. ,i»|
atill the warp b^s^lwWAt.1
"And you write often to her!" "Regularly, every month." "How unhappy she must be on account ol your
condition I" "Oh, as regards that
there exists between ut a peculiar
arrangement. My mother believes
me to be well and healthy. She
reads no newspapers. I write often
to her, as well as I can, in t merry
humor, and then she is happy. That
a son can be as siok tnd miserable
as I am, no mother would believe."
After this Heine became silent, tnd
my soul wit deeply moved when
from his bed of torture, where he
lay for long years, I saw him seal
and send off to the post his letter,
which was full of consoling news
and assumed serenity.—Mfrei Melt-
titer.

Now that the tomato season is
coming on, I wish to tell young and
old ladies, tnd gentlemen, too, that
there is nothing in the world which
will make their bands and facts so
soft and white as to wash them In
tomato pulp. The way to do it ia
to take a large, ripe, red tomato and
deliberately mash it in the hands,
wash the hands in themaah,andafter-
wardsrinsetheniinclearwater. There
is an acid in the. tomato which is
very penetrating, and will remove
stains from linen as well ns from
the human cuticle, and will take
moth patches tnd stains from the
face just is easily. There may be
some who would not care to use a
plebeian tomato. Such can procure
a lemon, cut off the ends, and.then
cut the lemon in two in the middle.
Stand the parts up, the. small cut
ends downward, and put on each
piece four lumps of sugar and set
them in the oven until the sugar is
dissolved and gone into the lemon.
Then rub one half of the lemon on
each hand, put on tn old pair of
gloves and keep them on till morning, when tho hands will be toft,
ind white, and smooth. The juice
Is not sticky, ts one might suppose,
but appear, oily, tnd it a very excellent remedy for rough, red, or
chapped hinds. It is much used by
Turkish women.

Londou, June 9.—The Chinaman ia
just now cauainK the Brituh government considerable anxiety. In. addition to th. trouble to the home government, caused by the action'' of tha
At-HahanaolooiM ret^aiiof'thUln*-,
ing of Chinamen in Aptnlia, tht
Chinamen in India are now creating
difficulties which are rapidly assuming
alarming proportion.. Desperate
fight, between the member, of the
•eoret .odetiea, the Ghi Hin .nd the
Ho Sing, are now of almost dtilw occurrence. The police ih t number ol
instance, having to be reinforced by the
military to quell the disturbances. In
Calcutta and other large ports the
celestials are in a small minority and
the existence of the Chine., secret
societies doe. not matter much to the
General public, but in other part, ol
ndia, Burmah for inttance, where the
Chinese mater very .trong, the .abject is ons of considerable importance
to India, and affects the peace and security of the civil population. Th.
Chinese throughout India, and in fact
Australia, Singapore and Sarawak, are
honeycombed by the Hoey or secret
societies. Originally formed in China,
they attain their full force and vigor in
outning countries, where, under British freedom and law., they find them-
Klve. practically unchecked, until some
desperate fight reveal, their eiiitence.
Then Mont ucietiee, of which the
Ghi Hin and Ho Sing are chief, hold
their victim, with the grip of a vice,
body and nul. There art officers and
members initiated into their myaterlea
with the most direful threat., whioh
are actually carried out. They monopolies Mv.nl branches of commerce
snd the interloper i. killed forthwith.
.They utterly command the labor mar-
rVet, regulate wage, and acknowledge
[.neither law nor justice. At Sarawack
th. evil wm found to be to wrion.
that the government made a law in
1870, decreeing death to eveiy member ipao facto. In Singapore, time altar time, they have railed fatal riot.,
Mme of which have only been quelled
by calling oat the military. In Burmah thej are supported by the Dacoit.
and ait Mierad by the Indian government to be at the bottom cf the trouble

In the matter of the pro]
railway hnA'friiffic bridj^ over tluSJ
Fraser at^rois i city rln - conneMioij'
with-the'r-projoited''Southern 'railH
way, there has liecn considerable
talk about Westminster city giving
o bonus to the company constructing the railway. We lieliitvc S100,
000'hnk been riiiiiitioned us the probable sum required. Such a bridge,
if we overlook altogether tlm fact of
its being a railway bridgo nnd connecting this city directly with the
great American system of railways,
would be invaluable to us as a
traffic bridge. Westminster would
thereby be put in direct and easy
communication with all tlie splendid
agricultural settlements on the
south side of tlio river, from which
it has been too long all but isolated,
owing to governmental and municipal neglect. As wo mentioned in
these columns recently, farmers are
dissuaded from coming to this, their
natural market and trading centre,
by the indifferent ferry accommodations provided. Tlio farmers are
thus inconvenienced and have to go
elsewhere, und this city loses the advantage of their trade, which is a
much larger item than many would
suppose. With a bridge across the
river, open at all times for traffic—
with the exception of short intervals
when the draw would be in operation to admit the passage of the
larger craft—we would do a large
and constantly increasing trade with
the surrounding settlements, whieh
are gaining a steady accession to
their population and wealth. More
especially would the benefits of a
bridge be apparent during the winter months, when, owing to float iee,
and sometimes a partial "freeze-up"
for two or three woeks, the service,
at no time satisfactory, becomes exceedingly intermittent, und sometimes ceases altogether for a few
woeks. The inconvenience and loss
whioh is thus sustained by people
on both sides of the river is impossible to estimate, except by those
forced to travel at such times. In
view of all the facts in the case, it
would seem desirable that the city
should "strain a point," so to speak,
to secure a rail way and traffic bridge
opposite this city, in connection
with the Southern railway. There
are other things, however, for which
we shall be called upon shortly as a
city to raise money, in addition to
our ordinary expenditures, as, for
instance, a sewerage system, water
works, clearing and beautifying our
new park and other public grounds
and perhaps bonusing some new in
dustries, such as a flouring mill,
smelting works, He'. In the matter
ofthe bridge across the Fraser,
Westminster will do well to note
and profit by theexample afforded by
tho Rkrhmnnil municipality, which
is securing the substantial aid and
co-operation of both the provincial
and fedornl authorities! in the iron-
stmction'of their bridge ncross the
J-.'01'th Ann. We fonr thnt *jl00,-

these, and thoy hold thirni   at such
high figures, especially   at   a   time
like the present, as to frighten intending settlers and drive them out
of the country.j-iguch. instances have1,
happened, where1  would-be settlers
have become disgusted, o\v|hg to the,
difficulties olpobtainitig  j*-Pt'ii''. »nd
'-have gori$ao'*bss: the line"* and''''Set-'
tied  in Washington   Territory   or
Oregon.   Government, lands yet, remaining should not he sold to speculators, but should he reserved exclusively for pre-emptors,  who  would
occupy and improve the land. Otherwise tlio whole coiiiiti'y   rvil)  hrr in
the hnndsof 8petuli|tpni; rind ihnleacl
of prosperity we shrill soon imvrr nd
versityj and  llie must unfoi Inutile
will be those who nn: in  possession
of the hinds, which must he   unproductive so loug as they an* left in a
state of nature.     To check this selfish greed for  land-grabbing  there
ought to be & heavy tax on   all unoccupied lands.    The troublo is that
those composing the   governments
themselves favor   this   practice   of
land-grabbing, vory often prostituting their positions to  enrich them
solves and their friends  off   the
public domain.   In fact it has been
vory common   for  those  intrusted
with the disposal of crown  lands to
be the. chief land grabbers.'   The recollection in our own ddy of some of
these transactions is anything but
pleasing.     The motto,' "He  that
ruleth among men should be just,"
would appear to bo terminated by
many, "should feather his  nest"
Responsible government is thus terribly travestied in the whole Dominion. Governments, however, can
never be better than the people,, but
form a pretty fair index to the. character bf those whom they represent,
It is for the people to take a proper
hold of these questions, and then to
employ stewards who will obey their
masters.     In Mexico there was a
law that in towns and cities, as well
as rural lands, if after a certain date-
land was .unoccupied, it was subject
to entry by any one who would occupy.     How the Spaniards got so
far ahead of Britons in political and
social economy,  it  is  difficult   to
imagine.    In our cities and   towns
development is arrested and progress
hindered by a liko manifestation  of
the same  spirit.     Speculators get
hold of oity property and hold it at
a high figure, with no intention of
improving it,while all the timo it is
being enhanced in value by the improvements of their neighbors. Some
even wilt not build   when  guaranteed a fair interest on the investment.   Thus hindrances are thtown
in the way of enterprise,   which   is
often driven to seek  other  fields.
Everyone, of course, has the inalien
able right, within certain limits,   to
do as they will with their own,  but
governments, federal, provincial and
civic, should so adjust taxation as to
encourage the real bone and sinew
of country or city—those who own
nnd imjD'Ove prorrerty- - and 'to dis-
cpurage tlie nitirii speculator' aiid the

ll 1ms been said, and with truth,
that it is harder to'stand prosperity
than adversity; yet few would elect
the latter. A mean—known as the
happy medium—is no doubt best.
Anyone wbo hns witnessed 'one of
those "booms" such as raged in'
Winnipeg & few years ago, especially if ho was engaged in the fray and
chanced to come out "at the small
end of the horn," must be convinced
that "slow and sure" is the wisest
and safest course. Some of the
transactions that are occurring at
present in Westminster prove thnt
even slow going people may be susceptible of entertaining "boom"
ideas. A piece of land, twenty-four
acres, situate in the suburbs of this
oity; was purchased from the government a few years ago at a nominal
price. Ihe purchaser at that time
was considered to be a little fond of
retirement, when he isolated his
family so far into the bush. Ho
made some improvements, built a
comfortable house, ic, and in the
meantime the steadily growing town
began to encroach on hia solitude.
The other day he sold his piece of
land to a local syndicate of speculative Moelivities for something Over
?5,000. Similar transactions are
occuring every day, and some of the
most eligible property in the city is
passing into the hands of speculators, at high figures. Such transactions, *hile pleasant to record, have
another aspect, which should also bo
noted. While there are unmistakable
evidences that we are progressing as
a oity, that property is. becouiing
valuable and population increasing,
this practice, which has been carried
to an excess in other places that we
know ot, ot buying up property and
holding it for speculation, does not
furnish tho bent guarantee for continued prosperity. Considerable
injury has be-en done to the province, nnd to this district, in
the put, the effects of which are
still Apparent, by the operation of
this same principle. Speculators and
"Und-grabbers" have secured;at different times largo traotsof the public

nose ever and anon trembled visibly, and
his voice had tbat dreamy, touching Intonation tbat marks a sensitive, hlgh-souled
man In tht last stage of Influenza and
unrequited affection.'
"Why, Mr. Hankiuson," replied tht
lovely girl, with downcast eyes, bat with
a kind of don't-come-any-nearer txpret-
tion on her face, "your question takesme
by surprise, and I hardly-—"
"Laura," burst forth the young man
Impetuously, as he glanced In a laboriously careless way at a small Ivory tablot
concealed in his loft hand, "lt is hardly
possible for you to realize the difficulties
that beset—that are peculiar to tbo crisis
which at this hour I face. You would bt
disposed to laugh, perhaps, lf I should tell
you what a trifle clogs the freo cry of a

despite tho barriers tbat advent fate appears to huvoerected at thlt period. Hear
tha feeble yet eager cry of a heart, Laura,

"Mr. Hankiuson," interrupted thl
young lady, with a pouted air, "you
apeak most singularly, What It thl matter with you r"
The youth wiped hit noat again with
nervous haste, threw tht Ivory tablet
frantically across the room, and onct mort
began; "t^

Its Value to the Owner—Tim Fate of an
ICqiiinO fool.
In aelo'ctlni. a family horse, the first
requisite is iui0.:!..t'n,.>',' If tho animal bo
intelligent he is pretty suro to. l.tr snlo,
whereas even a gontlo horse who is stupid
la ulv.riys It source of possible dangtr. He
nmv ho so lazy and lifeless that tho most
timid woman would notfeartodrlvehlm,
and yet if ho lacks mind,ho will be pretty
tr ra to kick the carriage to pieces or run
way whenever anything breaks.   '
Ou the other hand, It la almost lmpos-
fllilu to scare a really Intelligent horse.
Da may be disconcerted or alarmed, but
he won't lost hit head.
It Is, however, astonishing bow llttl*
Interest In this ail-Important question of
intellect the usual horso dealer takes.
The reason probably It that ht fttlt per-
fec ly competent to manage any horK.no
luatter what th. animal's character may
be, and he regards him simply lta beast
' bf burden, and not in the least ti a companion or a friend.
An acquaintance of mint tent avtry
shrewd Jockey to Kentucky for tht pnr-
poat of .electing a taddlt4_orat. He
brought back a KawUbw atfeol.itbor-
oughly trained and p*if(«tiy tatltfatttry
(bm ntw owner. But tnyono who had
studied horse's eyes would ban teen at a
glance that the high-priced "saddler" wat
a fool, and to hi turned out to be, for h«
was easily frighteued, and ht Anally ru
away, and had to bt told ln dlsgract.

While lying at Brodie's cannery laat
evening disohsrging freight the atr.
Rithet swung out a short distance
from the wharf causing the gang-plank
to drop Inlo the water. At the time
the plank fell a deck hand, with a
track containing half a ton of tin, was
on it, and both traok, Un and man
wen prsdpataUd into the water which
was nearly up to the flooring of the
wharf. The man and tin did not get
out of the gangway, but the truck was
lost.
Reports from all points along the
river say the water is falling rapidly,
•nd that with a few trifling exceptions,
the high water has done much more
good than harm. At Chilliwhack lust

still falling, and at Agassis s fall of 12

Still Another Victory.
Mr. W. H. Higgins, representing
Ross, McLaren & Co., tho great Ottawa lumbermen, left this afternoon
to visit the largo sawmill* on Puget
Sound with a view of noting the class
of machinery necessary for a first-class
mill, and to inspect the working of the
latest improvements in sawmill ma*
chinery. Messrs. Rosa & McLaren
have definitely decided on establishing
their new mill on the proporty lately
acquired by them from Senator Mclnnes, and immediate steps will be
taken for its erection. The new mill
will have a capacity of 300,000 feet per
day, and the lumber manufactured will
be exclusively for the foreign trade.
Fuller particulars of this gigantic enterprise will be made public in a few
daya. -     '
The Colonies Win.
Tho cricket match on Saturday
proved a complete victory for the
Colonies, and of such a decisive nature
that no room was left for the Old
Countrymen to put in the plea of
"chance." In our partial report in
Saturday's issue of the match, the excellent fielding, wicket-keeping and
bowling of the Colonies were noted,
the play all round being much more
brilliant than ia usually seen in Westminster. On going to bat the Colonies
showed themselves as strong in defending the wickets as they had been
in assaulting them, aod so well did the
youngsters handle their opportunities
that a score of 100 was to their credit
when the last man went out. The batting of Dock rill, Lewis and Fletcher
was exceptionally good and might even
he called brilliant, their scores being
26, 21 and 16 respectively. Mowat
with 6 rum to hia credit was the fourth
on the list; The score on the Old
Country side was 34 against their opponents 100, leaving the Colonies victorious by Wt runs. The Old Countrymen are uot at alt satisfied with the
result of the match and it is 'probable
a return game will be played shortly.

-Una of the Finest Farm and Frnlt
tanda otethe <roatln.nl.
Wo often hear new arrivals in ths'
province giving expression to the opinion "that there is no farming lsnd in
British Columbia." This erroneous
idea is formed from what they see of
tho country from a car window as the
train winds its way along the magnili-
cent rivoi's, rocky canyons, nnd wooded
valleys of the inriuiitiiiii ranges between
Calgary and the onast. if one wished
to see as little hs possible of the great
improvements that have taken place in
tbe last five yours nud to close their
eyes to the vast chances thnt this yenr
is bringing nbout, no route would bo
more suitnble for that purposo than
the C .P. II. In locating the line of
this grent railway the engineets found
it necessary to follow tho natural chain
of mountain passes, which, of necessity, debarred the road from running
through the splendid stretches of agricultural country, finer than which are
not to bo found ou the continent.
From Chilliwhack to the mouth nf the
Fraser river runs a stretch of the famous bottom' lands, noted for their
wonderful fertility and for the increasing crops raised from year to year,
lands that have grown 130 bushels of
oats to the acre, 80 bushels of wheat
and 4 tons of hay, not once, but scores
of times.
LAUNEHH.
Fifteen miles below Westminster
the; village of Ladners lies prettily situated-on the south shore of the Fraser. Protected from the raw north
and east winds by a belt of handsome
timber and with a free and open southern and western exposure, giving: a
view of surroundings almost unequalled
on the continent, leaves an impression
on the mind of the visitor that time
cannot remove. To the right, left and
rear of Ladners lies tho finest stretch
of agricultural land in Canada, and
what will be in 10 years the garden of
our great Dominion, This ia known
as the Delta municipality, which embraces within its limits 50,000 acres uf
the celebrated bottom lands and every
inch of which can be brought into the
highest state of cultivation. Tlie fnrma
along the main trunk road, from tho
lauding to tho timber, six miles across
the country, nre any of them worth a
visit.- The orchards, gardens, fields
of grain, hay and vegetables in a perfect
state of cultivation and proinisiug most
prolific yields must be seen to bo properly appreciated. A representive of
Thi Columbian, within the last few
days, had the pleasure of paying a visit
to a few of these boautiful farms. Tho
crop of smnll fruits is remarkably large
and am uow-aurturin_ fast and will
mum bo found on tho market. Strawberries in particular have yielded most
prolifically, and gooseberries, currants,
and raspberries give promise of equally
good results. In Mr. W. H. Ladner's
garden we saw a buneh of strawberries,
grown on a siugle plant, that weighed
7 ozs,, and several berries that weighed
about an ounce eaeh. Mr. Hieka has
about an aero under strawberries, tho
finest on the Delta, which means a
great deal. Mr. Ktrkland's orchard is
worthy of more than passing notice.
Almost every kind of apple, pear and
small fruits sre to bo found in it, from
the early to the lato varieties. Mr.
Kirkland has spared no expense in securing tho best trees that could bo
bought and the wisdom displayed in
this course is rapidly becoming apparent , Caterpillars have been very destructive on the-delta this season and
nothing but constant attention to the
trees has saved the fruit. The loss,
however, from these destructive pests
will be light Mr. Hutchison, proprietor of the mainland nursery, is doing
an ever-increasing business in trees
and shrubs and what speaks best for
his nursery is tho fact that the trees
are clean, healthy and hardy, and give
every satisfaction to the purchaser.
The nursery covers a large acreage and
contains many thousands of apple,
Eear, peach, walnut and prune trees,
asides every imaginable variety of
small fruit plants. The advantage of
having n nursery on tho dolln, whero
the trees best, suited to the soil nnd
climate arc easily distinguished, is uf
immense benefit to the farmers, as the
quality of tho tree or plant being
known apd tried does away with ull
speculation in setting out orchards snd
gardens.
I.HJIIILBIjj ryutM. .
tif all the sights on the Delts, the
Jubilee Farm is probably' tho most
worthy of note. This'beautiful farm
is owned by Ladners' most enterprising snd progressive oitiien, Mr. Thos.
McNeeley, and not only is it a crodit
to himself but to the province at large.
The farm is situated about two miles
back from the landing ori the lelt hand
aide of the main trunk road, and embraces about 130 ncres, nil of whioh are
under cultivation. Mr. McNeeley
realizing that Britisli Columbia is
naturally the fruit producing country
for the great Northwest hns set out an
orchard, the largest in the province,
lhat will, within u few yenrs, yield an
annual ineome of mnny thousand dollars. Of apple and peur trees 1000 are
set out already, nud will beur fruit next
seaion, nnd this number trill be largely
added thia fall. The currant and
gooseberry bushes numbor 2500 and
will blso yield next yoar. A field of
25 acres contains almost evory variety
of vegetables grown on the north Pacific coast. A largo force of men aro
kept continuously at work on this farm,
and it is certainly wonderful tlio excellent condition it is kept iii. The
whole is as free from weeds as any well
*t.ept garden generally il, and the beds
and trees are set out with much artistic
taste, clearly showing that the management of tho Jubilee farm ia io good
hands. In Mr. MoNeeley's model
garden at the landing we noticed half
u dozen fruit-bearing English walnut
trees, t bed containing 100 blaok currant bushes, which are expected In
yield half a ton of fruit; a pear tree
with 35 Varieties of pears on it; 25 varieties of the dwarf rose and many othor
things worthy of more than ordinary
notice, bnt which space prevents us
from describing. Scores of farms on
tlio delta Anght be particularized In
these notes, in fact any one of them
might bo made the subject of a special
article, but, unfortunately, space for
bids a lengthy description suoh as we
would like to give.
ths aim's.
A more happy and contented lot of
people than the farmers of the delta
would be hard to find. Crops never
looked more promising than they do
at present, and the late rains have set
aside all chances of a middling crop.
We say a middling crop for a poor crop
is unknown on the delta. Hay is looking splendid and will average from 3
to 3_ tons to tho aero, and grains ore
looking romarkably well. Two fields
of barley, about a mile spar', already
headed out and standing almost 6 feet
high wore noticed on the trunk road.
Boot crops ure doing well and will give
a much larger yield than last year. It
ib estimated by close figuring thst fully
2000 aores nro under crop more than
lost year and that next Benson thi. will
bo added to by 5000 acres.
HOSPITALITY.
Who can visit Ladners without carrying away the most pleasant remembrances of the hospitality of the good
peoplo of that placo ? Although we
had heard many favorable remarks on
the subject yet we were not prepared
for the kindness extended on everv
hand, especially as we were a stranger
to the delta and almost unknown there.
But with such whole-souled men as our
popular and genial representative in
the local legislature, Mr. W. H. Ladner, Mr. C. F. Green, Mr. McNeeley,
Mr. Rich, Mr. Guichon, and a host of
others, the delta could- not bo otherwise than hospitable, and our great regret in parting from the garden municipality of the province was that time
would not admit of our enjoying another day in such congenial society.
To the visitor, .the tourist and the
land-seeker we can heartily recommend
a visit to Larjners as one that will result both in pleasure and profit. And
the person who visits British Columbia
and returns.Without viewing the delta
cannot claim to have' seen or learned
anything of the sgriculturnl resources
and capabilities of the province.
