(Continued from yesterday).
In a disjointed production liko
this, it might not bo amiss to mention tin) favorite pupil as the occasion of one of the minor dilemmas.
In a certain sense, atl teachers may
be said to have their favorites; and
although this does not imply injustice or partiality, it may nevertheless give rise to most embarrassing
circumstances, and plane a teacher
in a position in which no amount ot
reasoning and expostulation with a
fond mother and an enraged father
can save him from the torrent of
their abuse. Indeed, with all he
can do, ho may come off vanquished,
without any one to sympathize with
him in his defeat, and with no other
satisfaction than the approbation of
his conscience, and the well-founded
belief that he did nothing but what
it was his duty to do. Let ine illustrate by example: Here are two
pupils; ono of them is the son of
well-to-do, industrious parents.
Truthfulness, honesty of purpose,
generosity, and a high sense of honor
have come to him through a long
line of ancestors. A gentleman liy
instinct as well as parental training,
he inherits richer blood than that
which flows in the veins of the son
of an effeminate duke or a crown
prince. Nature, also, in the irregular way in which she sometimes bestows her gifts, has lavished on him
her choicest treasures. He is sound
in body and comely in person, his
intellect is clear and vigorous, and
his moral nature so healthful that
the beautiful, the good and the true
seem nil one, and he never rails to
perceive them. To him work is
sacred and cannot be slighted, time
is of great value xijjl; nni*pt be
squandered! obedience to a kind
father and a pure mother has been
the law of his life and he never once
thinks of opposition to those set over
him in authority. This is Edwin
Marlowe. His parents called him
Edwin after his grandfather, as
kindly an old gentleman as ever
raised his eyes to the blue of heaven
or trod the green beneath. Mark
this well-bred boy, while he appears
before you from day to day, and as
you perceive the gradual unfolding
of a highly-gifted nature, the half-
dormant energies of your own soul
are quickened; ahd */oii'ai(S"tWlsi8ti-
bly drawn to him by a strange .sort
of fascination. There is a subtle influence about him, something in his
expression and demeanor, that re-
culls to mind what you have read
about the childhood of the noblest of
our race, the heroes of romance,
chivalry, and song.
In that seat opposite to the ono
Marlowe occupies is John DeWinton
Smith, the son of a dry-goods merchant. The patronymic DeWinton
belong to his mother's family, and
she is proud of it, for through it she
can trace her descent from the
Stuyvesants. John's father, "the
old man," as the boys familiarly cull
him, owns considerable money and
property in real estate. He is a
loud talker, somewhat of a boaster,
but when it comes to the point, not
very courageous. Mrs. Smith is. a
jealous, vain, weak-minded woman,
who litis brought up her children to
believe that they are better than all
the other boys and girls in the town.
John feels out of place in school, for
has he not, again and again, heard
his mother apologetically explain to
her friends how it comes that she
sends him tothe public school,where
none of her family ever thought of
going? • The lirst time John entered
the schoolroom, he left a bad impression on your mind, "I have
come to school,. what seat mill I
take!" was all he said; and yet this
was uttered in such a harsh, swaggering tone of voice, that you opened
your eyes a liltle more than usual
and merely answered* "Take that
ono." And now, ns the young man
sits thore before you, with hiB eyebrows somewhat contracted and his
chin slightly tilted upwards, you
must be very unobservant, indeed,
if you will not see nt a glance that
although he may know: very little
nlout the three R's (and you must
remember ho has been at several
private schools) he is well versed in
the three l's; for impertinence, insolence, nnd impudence are untnis-
tnlcnlily visible in his countenance.
Whnt you revolve iu your mind is
uot how muoh you can teach him,
but how you rim most effectually
uproot the seeds of evil habit and
false notions nud bring him to that
state of discipline which exists in
all well-regulated Institutions. Noarly everything tlmt John does is
wrong. Tho look, tho word, the
grin, the sickly smile, all savor of
contempt, and you have to correct
him nt every point, not only for his
own srike, but for the good   of   the
Children Cryfor PHoher'sCmlerta
other pupils. Gradually John becomes more submissive, but his submission is accompanied by a sullen-
noss and suspicious watchfulness
that forebode trouble in another
direction. On the Atlantic coast,
in the old Acadian land, often in
the afternoon the wind rises and
blows violently. Dust, pieces of paper, and othor materials are carried
up and whirled ubout in the air for
a time. Then, little by little, the
wind goes down, while in the west a
dark clourl appears, and, rising, grows
in blackness, till it coven half tlio
heavens and hides the tun; and at
last, when the portentous calm is perfect, the tempest bursts forth with
rerriflc fury. So it is' with John; be
becomes less and less boisterous, but
more darkly suspicious of everything
you do. Though wanting in that essential called brains, he has much of
the shrewdness of his father, and all
the jealous nature of his mother. To
her he now goes with all his grievances.
She listens to hi. tales, and readily believes, as the toy puts it, that the
teacher "has a pick' at him. If Bhe
had any doubt about the matter, it is
completely dispelled by Miss Gwendoline Victoria Bathbono, a daily via:-
tor at the Smiths; for she not only declares what John says is true, but that
alt tho children say the teacher favors
Edwin Marlowe. Mr. Smith is too
much occupied with business to attend
to school matters, but he is practically
ruled by his wife, and she sends him
at onoe to the board of trustees. He
is "an influential man and in high
favor with the majority of the board,
and when he mentions the matter in a
reluctant half-confidential way, the
chairman replies, "Yes; it is common
talk round town how Mr. Marlowe's
son is favored." They are somewhat
incensed, for they have heard similar
complaints from other quarters. And
really reports of your favoritism have
become general, for John has several
friends in school, who think you are
too severe with him, snd who can all
point to more than one occasion on
which you certainly showed partiality.
The trustees seriously take your case
inlo consideration: You are not giving
satisfaction, there are many complaints
against you, the pupils have lost respect for you, and some of them havo
even left school. They think, and I
am of the same opinion, that an investigation would make matters worse,
even for yourself, and so they either
ask you to resign or send you the following business-like note:
Woodvillb, March 31st, 1888.
IIkab Sir:—I am instructed by the
board of trustees to inform you that your
services, as teacher ia the public schools
of this city, will not be requited after
the .10tli of April of the current year.
Yours, etc.,

Have you ever known a dilemma
suoh as this, of which a pupil of great

Lomios, Apl. 6.—The Telegraph
prints a despatch from Borlin which
states that at a toast given by tho
Ornwu Princo William to Prinoe Bismarck on the letter's birthday, Prince
William .aid: "The whole imperial
family hope flint the chancellor will be

as evidence that tho Emporor Frederick

Ottawa, April 7.—After a dab ite,
lasting 15 days, in which 71 members
participated, tho division took plsce
this morning at 5 o'clock. The result
was a majority of 57 on a total vote of
lUl, in favor of the Ministerial amendment to Sir Richard Cartwrights*motion for unrestricted trade reciprocity
with thu United States. The Ministerial motion was us follows: That all
tho words after "that" be struck out
in order lo add the following: "Canada in Ihe future us in Ihe past, is desirous of cultivating nnd extending her
trade relations with Iho Foiled States
in so far aa they may not conflict with
the policy of Fostering tho various interests and industries ofthe Dominion,
which was adopted in 1870 and has
since received in so marked a manner
the sanction and approval of its people."

Palmyra, Mo., April 7.—Fifteen
school ohildren, while playing around
an old well thirty feet deop, yesterday,
wore precipated to the bottom by tho
breaking of several rotten planks.
Two ohildren were drowned and several
badly injured, and nre not expected to

THE RED RIVER ROAD.
Winnipeo, Apl. 7.--Premier Greenway said to-day that the Hed River
Valley Railway will bo completed at
once by the government, and the prov
ince would retain the ownership of the
road as an independent entry into
Manitoba and give confidence to the
people of Manitoba that there would
be no opportunity fop monopoly ot
pooling in future. All railways are to
be allowed running power over it.
THE LAST OF THE AZTECS.
Mexico, April 7.—Rev. Mr. Oarly,
of the Catholic missionaries, will shortly leave for southern Mexico with a
view to converting the Laoondons, a
wild tribe of Indians, 24,000 in number, who are scattered over portions of
the states of Campeche, Tabasco and
Yucatan. They are reported to preserve the religious and social customs
of tbe Aztecs in their primitive purity,
and still offer human sacrifices to their
gods.
prince Alexander's makhiaoe.
Berlin, April 7.—The breaking off
of the marriage of Princess Viotoria
with prince Alexander is the talk in all
circles. It seems to be admitted that
the logical result of the marriage would
be a revolutionary explosion in the
Balkan peninsula, and perhaps an
European war. Touched by their
daughter's love and constancy, the Emperor nnd Empress Victoria had
given a reluctant consent, which, owing to Bismarck's representations, has
been withdrawn. The coming of
Queen Viotoria here to visit her daughter is viewed with alarm, as soma
demonstration of the undoubtedly
popular dislike of the Empress and
Queen-mother is apprehended, while
her ardent advocacy of Battenburg's
suit is thought liable to cool the existing cordial relations of England and
Germany.
The Medicine for Liver and Kidney
Complaint.—Mr. Victor Auger, Ottawa,
writes: "I take great pleasure in recommending to the general public Parmelee's Pills, as a oure for Liver and Kid-
ney Complaint. I have doctored for the
last three years with leading physicians,
and have taken many medicines which

DISUAKCK SULKY.
London, April 7.—The ZViikj ssys it
is apparent that Bismarck is restless
snd sulky under the new regime.
Heretofore he had to do with men
alone, but now he finds himself confronted with three generations of Victorias', all blessed with true Guelphio
sentimentality and obstinacy. It is
no wonder he is uncomfortable, and
still less is it strange that he resists
the Battenberg's intended marriage,
which displeases the great bulk of the
German people, angers the German
army and official classes, enrages the
czar and perhaps may precipitate war
itself.

New York, April 7.—Hans and

Snliinlay Bvenlns. April I. ISSS.
lt will Ire seen that, the Canadian
parliament has resolved by a Very
decisive vote to retain the present
high customs torill'. This result
was certainly not unexpected, The
house contains rv large majority of
Conservatives, nml it is well known
that questions of this sort nro more
often determined by tho innate political ideas'of representatives than
by tho forco of reasoning. As a rule
nnc might put forward an endless
number of the most powerful arguments for the purpose of inducing u
Heformer or Conservative to voto
contrary to his party convictions
without the slightest eli'ect. It is
only at tho polls that the voice of
the people can be heard.
Hon. Mr. Vernon has introduced
into the house a bill to amend the
present land and timber laws. This
bill repeals the military nnd settlers'
act of 1883, which made certain
special provisions for the settlement
of members of the corps of Royal
Engineers then in tke provinco. It
provides for the setting apart of re-
servo lands for recreation grounds
and sohool purposes. Respecting
timber lands the bill makes several
imporhutt changes. The stumpage
dues, hitherto imposed, aro to be ro-
movod, and a royalty is to lie collected on all logs brought to the
mill. Timber lands are to be open
for sale the same as other lands, at
$2.50 por acre, but they would be
liable for the wild land tax. Under
the new laws it is estimated that
timber lands will yield a revenue of
from $15 to $20 per acre. Tho present revenue from timber leases in
the province is only about 813,000,
but under the new regulations it is
expected the revenue will roach
?30,000 the lirst year, and that it
will be continually increasing.
Our enterprising cotemporary of
the Kamloops Sentinel proposes to
collect and forward to the Toronto
industrial exhibition a collection of
the grain, roots, fruit, timber and
other resources of British Columbia,
and circulars have been issued inviting contributions for the exhibit.
The object aimed at is entirely
praiseworthy, but we are afraid the
plan proposed is open to objection.
A few days ago Mr. Saunders, of
Toronto, had an interview with our
minister of agriculture for the purpose of enlisting the interest of the
provincial government in the procurement of a creditable exhibit.
But it would not bo advisable for
British Columbia to send two separate exhibits of this sort. The space
available at the exhibition will be
limited, and there should be only
one collection of articles representative of our resources, and that should
be the best procurable. Kamloops
is too far from tho centre of population in this province to make it a
convenient point at which to make
up the collection. It should be made
in a central place, such as Westminster, and the selection should be
made by the Dominion emigration
agent. We understand that the government has signified its willingness
to give every reasonable assistance
towards having this province well
represented at the exhibition, and
we think the Sentinel would be more
likely to forward the success of the
scheme if it abandoned the idea of a
separate show and used its influence
towards making as complete as possible the provincial exhibit gathered
under official direction.
A few days ago we again asked
the Guardian to mention ono substantial advantage now possessed by
this city which would be lost by the
extension of the C.P.R. to Vancouver. In his issue of this morning
our cotemporary begs the question
by saying that The Columbian has
ignored his "unanswerable arguments." We confess we have ignored them for the simple reason that
they have never come under our notice. It is quite probable our co-
temporary refers to his declaration
that the river mail subsidy would be
withdrawn in the event of an extension! and puts that forward as
an "unanswerable argument." But
it is not an argument at all, but
merely an assertion for which there
is not the slightest ground. How
does our cotemporary know the sab-
sidy would be withdrawn 1 This
oity and Vancouver are now connected by rail, with a double train
service every day, and the extension
ot the Westminster branch would
have no more effect upon the withdrawal of the nail subsidy than the
construction of the bra nch itself had.
Our cotemporary might make any
number of assertions equally groundless if he wished, and label them
"unanswerable arguments," but the
facts would remain just the same.
His failure to respond to our reasonable request, however, is an ''unanswerable argument" in support of
The Columbian's contention that
the prapeeed extension would not
injure the interests of this city, On
the contrary, we are of opinion that
it would place us in a much better
position-then th« one we now occupy.- '-Zmmm^—sg_~m

A Lecture on a Bridge.
A gentleman in Washington was
about crossing tho bridge over the Potomac, when he came up with a negro
in a wagon, who ngrecd to take him
over for live conts in advance.
The man asked why he desired his
money boforo lie had earned it.
"Dar's whisky over dar, maBsa,"
answered the negro, pointing toward a
saloon, "and I'se gwino to drop in."
"No, you don't, lily friend; at hirst,
not with my money."
"But l'se very hot, massa,"urged the
negro.
"Yes, and by and by you will be
very cold. When you nre hot you
take whisky to cool you; and when you
are oool you take whisky to warm you.
Is it not so?"
"Jes bo, zactly, ninssn.   Yah! yah!"
"Now I know nil nbout it, my friend,
I used to be a tippler myself, and it
waa only through God's niorcy that I
was not utterly ruined. As it was, it
brought me und my family to poverty
and disgrace. If you will drive on, I
will give you ten cents instead of the
five I bargained for."
After a wistful look toward the saloon, the negro wont on. He could
not always earn ten conts, but ho
could almost always get whisky.
"My friend," snid the stranger, 'it
is not at ull probable that you and I
will ever meet again in this world, and
beforo we part at the ond of this
bridge, I wish you to promise me that
you will never tako another drop of
liquor as long as you live. Whisky
stole my bruins and purso away, nnd it
will steal yours us well. It left una
without friends, ur bread, or Self-respect. But now 1 am au honest and
truo man, with a respectable family,
and a home whore penco nnd plenty
abide. Would this have been my case
had 1 continued to drink liquor! Is it
yours!"
"Nomnasa, J'soa poor man, dat's
a fact."
" You must be that, so long ns you
drink up your half dimes before they
aro earned.   Have you a family !"
" Yes, sah."
*' Well, here are your ten conts; and
can you promise me to buy a loaf of
bread with it for the little ones!"
" Yes, Bah," drawing his sleeve across
his oyes.
" And you will always think of what
I have said when you cross this bridge,
and when you are tempted to drink
whiskey ?"
" Yes, suh. I never saw it this way
before."
"Good-bye, then, and Gorl help
you." The mon Bhook hands and departed. 	
AMIcled Throw*,!* Drunken  Parents.
A gentleman of position, himself an
hereditary drunkard, and so violent
that his wifo and children have had to
leave him, hns a sister an imbecile
through diiiiking and with suicidal
tendencies. She will do nnythiug for
drinK—will bog, borrow or steal, pawn
every thinri sho can lay her hands on,
and evon essay robbery with violence,
in the hope of obtaining money to
gratify her morbid craving fur alcohol.
Another sister (married) is also an
habitual drunkard, who gets into tits
of ungovernable fury when in drink,
and, being dangerous lo both herself
and others, is under restraint. Thus
all the family are dipsomaniacs, The
fatal legacy in this case was from bnth
parents. The father shot himself in
alcoholic mania, tho mother wns an
inveterate drunkard, and the grandfather a confirmed drunkard The inherited
drink-crave where it exists, ovon when
from tho absence of temptation or from
tho strength of resolute will, it has
ever been made manifest, iB always
latent, and ovor ready to bo lit up at
the faintest alcoholic provocation. The
smallest sip of the weakest form of fermented or distilled' liquor has the
power to set in a blaze the hidden unhallowed lire. Persons ignorant of tho
inexorable law of hereditary in alcohol
indiscriminately rebuke nnd denounce
the vicious drunkard mid tbo diseased
dipsomaniac. But to medical experts
it is ns clear as their own existence that
there ure multitudes of pursuits of both
sexes und in all positions of lifo who,
though they may never havo yielded
to the enticements around them, nre
yet branded with the red-hot iron
of alcoholic hereditary. Tho only
safety for all such lies in entiro and
unconditional abstinence from all alcoholic drinks.
 —♦.♦*♦—.	
Home Maaltr Wine and Cider.
A pgt theory of thoso who nre unwilling to accept total abstinence as
truest temperance, in the line of liquor
drinking, is that puro wines end cider
are comparatively harmless, in contrast with adulterated liquor. Yet
there is no form of drunkenness whioh
has moro of brutality in it than that
whioh is a result of cider-drinking; and
from the days tif Noah tn the present
day, a man who has beon made drunken by home-made wine is likely to be
as disgracelully drunken ss if it wero
strychnine whisky which had brought
him down. Only a few days ago a
silk-weaver in Hebron, Oonn.,muttered his wife and two children and thon
tot lire to tho house. He was a Swiss
immigrant, aud believed in homemade liquors. The telegraph reports
reads: ' 'Ho hnd half a dozen barrels
of home-made wine and oider in his
cellar, and drinking from these mado
him orasy, and promoted the murder."
If the blood-stained ashos of his household show tho sort of home made by
home-made wines and cider, total abstinence from these liquors would
seem to be the truest temperance.

A H0ME~C0MPANY,
This. Association merits the
confidence the Public is reposing in it from the following
FACTS:—
The Reouruy oflerctl to nollcy holders Is
•unsurpassed by any Company doing business in Canada,
It bus no schemes of Insurance, but the
well-established lines, hence the policy
holders cannot be misled as lo their contracts.
Its statements to the publlo can be readily understood, Its ensb Htnteinent shoiv-
tnaevery Item of income and how expended.
Its position isnncertnliieil annually from
a detailed valuation In which every Item
of liability Is Included.
Its progress has been unexampled in
tbe history of insurance In Canndn.
Its policies are 1ml input able ufter three
yearB, nnd non-lor/eitable after two years'
existence.
Its protlts are distributed upon nn eqnii-
able oaBls.   Tho profits to one clams of
tioltcy holders nre not h-Hsoned to -give
arger profits to nny other el hsh. whieh
method affords superior advantages over
the uniform bonus plan of distribution.

BEST IN THE WORLD.
BrIIMi Columula  Bridge Timber the
rincHl in I lie World—Autograph Let •
trr From a I'l-ncll-rul Bridge Build-
rr to (lie Kojiill lty I'IimiIdr
Mills Co.
The annexed letter, received from
Mr. R. Balfour, inspector of C. P. U.
bridges, is very flattering to British
Columbia timber, but, at the same
time, coming from such a well-known
expert, there cannot bo the slightest
doubt as to the sense of hiB reasoning.
lt is generally admitted that British
Columbia fir carries n greater strength
und less weight than any wood of the
kind grown out ofthe province, boing
even superior to tho timber grown in
Oregon nnd Washington territory. In
bridgo building particularly our timber shows ita great value, having the
length, strength and durability. The
letter is addressed to the Royal City
Planing Mills Co. and is as follows:
" In reply to your inquiry as to the
adaptability ot British Columbia fir for
bridge construction I have no hesitation in saying that it is admirably adapted for that purpose; especially is
this the case when used in the.construction of truss bridges of longer
spans than usually built of wood, possessing ns it does great strength and
durability together with the possibility
of procuring very long timbers, thus
reducing the number of splices in all
members of the truss subject to tensile
strains.
I am aware that the early Howe
truss bridges have not always proved
satisfactory, breaking down in mnny
cases in a few years after erection, hut
seldom accompanied with nny damage
to rolling stock or Ions of life, as invariably is the caso with thu loss of an iron
bridge. The principal cause of failure
of the Howe truss is generally due to
defective design, and inferior timber,
being built of soft pine timbers of short
lengths, and they consequently failed
to do the work they wero intended to
perform, but with the experience
whieh bridgo builders hnve acquired,
and the advantage of being ablo to
obtain timbers of unlimited lengths, it
is possible to build a span of two hundred feet and under, which will bo in
many respects superior to the ordinary
iron railway bridgo fer tho following
reasons, viz: owing to the cheapness of
the material, a greater factor of safety
is used in designing wooden truss
bridges. Any defects in the material
can-be detected before tbe bridge is
erected.
Partial failure of any member of tho
truss will manifest itself long before
actual failure; likewise partial failure
of tho whole truss will bu plainly notice-
ablo to the most cureless observer long
before tho bridgo will actually go down
under its load—whereas in the case of
the iron bridge the material it is built
of may be deteriorated whilo to all appearances it is aa strong as the day it
was built. Thus it will bo seen that
the wooden truss bridge of medium
span is really the safest for the travelling public. The cause of the failure
of wooden truss bridges heretofore has
boen due to the necessity of using
short tiinburs; in the lower chorda this
can now bo avoided by using British
Columbia fir, which yoti inform me you
can furnish eighty foet long and over.
My experience with thu use of British Columbia lir leads inn to believe
that a Howe truss bridgo built of that
material, ii well seasoned und painted
before emotion, will last for forty
years; of course, different climates will
affect the timber differently. 1 speak
now of the climate of the interior of
British Columbia, and I believe the
same will apply to the Northwest territories and northwestern Btates, nud
perhaps iu a somewhat lees degree to
the eastern states and provinces. My
opinion is based on careful examination of where great forest fires have
felled the timber; remnants of fir trees
still remain Bound enough fur structural purposes after lying on tho ground
for over 38 years, as evidenced by the
age of the young trees which have
grown since the destruction of the forest.
With this evidence before me 1
think I am not over estimating tho
durability of this great timber, as it is
evident that if any portion of a tree
will remain sound while lying on tho
ground subject to tho moisture of the
earth, effects of the weather, aud ravages of worms for 88 years, as proved
beyond a doubt, surely timber not too
severely strained in a structure entirely
above ground, well-seasoned and protected from the weather by painting,
will remain perfectly Bound for forty
ypni'B. —I remain yours very truly,
