The final count gives 335 Liberals, 249 Conservatives, and 82 Parnellites as tho result of the Into
British elections. In a straight
vote, therefore, the Liberals woultl
lutbe ii majority of I over both the
Conservatives and Pnr noil ites. How
Lord Salisbury expects to retain
power under such circumstances it
is difficult to see.
It is estimated tliat the Dominion License act lately quashed by
the privy council has cost the country §107,336. This docs not include
cost of passing tbo bill and its amendments, and thecostofnn appeal tothe
supreme court of Canada and the
privy council of Great Britain. If
theso items were added, tlio entire
cost of this attempt to infringe
upon provincial rights would probably reach nearly §200,000. It has
been a most costly and unsatisfactory piece of legislation certainly.
The U. S. revenue cut tor Richard Rush is on her way to the arctic regions in search of the lost
whaling ship Amythist. It is hoped
the Bush may fall in with the
crew of the missing whaler before
she is compelled by the ice to take
shelter for the winter. tn the
event of her being unsuccessful, she
will probably seek the shelter of
somo friendly harbor until spring
enables her to resume tbo search.
We are sure every person will
wish that the mission of the rescuer may be a success.
Mr. Jennings, for many years
connected with the news company
of London which makes a specialty of supplying the American
papers with English news, lately
wrote to Sir. Gladstone and invited
him to visit America. In the letter
he enclosed a despatch from New
York indicating that tho people of
the United States would be greatly
pleased to receive a visit from him.
Mr. Jennings also stated that on
this continent it was generally believed that Mr. Gladstone was tho
only living British statesman who
could successfully arrange the
tangled skein of Irish affairs, and
ho hinted that a practical study of
American institutions might afford
valuable information to that end.
Mr. Gladstone replied that in thc
present unsettled nature of public
affairs it would be impossible for
him to undertake so long a journey.
The affairs of the empire needed all
tho thought he could give thom.
Ifc is doubtful if thero is any man
living who would receive as cordial
a, welcome iu America as W, E,
Gladstone.
Starving to Death!
An Indian from Port Hammond
reports finding two Chinamen lying
dead in an old cabin, and their appearance indicated that they bad
died through starvation. There are
hundreds of these wretched creatures throughout the province in a
scarcely less hopeless plight In
some places they bave beeu living
for months by stealing chickens,
pigs, and almost any other kind of
provisions that came in their way.
But frequent thefts produce extra
Vigilance on the part of the people,
and when this means of existence
fails, tho Chinaman hoa to faco actual starvation. There aro hundreds of thom in this eity, keeping
the (ires of life slowly burning by
means of the fish they catch at tbe
wharves nnd the garbage they pick
up in tbe streets. These creatures
were brought to this country by Mr.
Onderdonk to work on the railway.
They were allowed to enter tho province in the face of earnest and repeated protests from the people, the
press and the representatives of
British Columbia. The very evils
now so conspicuous wero predicted
unless something could 1* dono to
check the wholesale importation.
But tho authorities at Ottawa either
could not. or would not seo how
serious the situation was becoming,
and failed to apply the remedy until too late. It remains for them
now to devise means by whioh this
provinco can be relieved of the
curse whioh their carelessness has
permitted to como upon it. These
unwelcome paupers should he ship
ped back to Ohina, and it would
pay the country to do it at public
nxoense.

A Remarkable Reply. ,
It will bo remembered lhat the
people of Port Moody presented an
address to his excellency the governor-general upon the occasion of
his visit to tjiis province. Instead
of replying to the address as usual,
his excellency put the document into
his pocket and promised to consider
it. The address referred to thc
fact that Port Moody had been
declared by the government the
western terminus of the 0. P, R.,
but stated that serious doubts had
arisen which wore operating injuriously against the place. The reply
has now come, and ifc is n document
of curious composition. It is written by tho governor's secretary,
Lord Melgund, and after stating
that the address had been referred
to the minister of railways, it says:
His excellency learns from tho' mints-
tor that so fm* na the government is concerned Port Moody is recognized as tlie
Paoifio terminus of tho road. Wharf accommodation has been provided at t;ie
place, aud steps have been taken through
tho sinking of iron piles to obtain for tlie
wharf immunity from tho attaiika of tho
teredo (sea worm) to whioh it is at present subject. At tho same time it iu
clearly understood that tho C. P. R. Co.
may, oa assuming this auction, seo fit,
for reasons which in thoir judgment aro
sufficient, to make connection with the
Pacific waters at other points; and, in
faot, thc company have intimated tlieir
contemplation of such a scheme.
This reply contains just the ono
fact which speculators ill Port
Moody persistently shut out of view
the fact that although the government had proclaimed Port Moody
the terminus, the syndicate might
make the terminus further down
thc inlet. Blinded to this possibility, the holders of Port Moody
property have constantly beeu harping upon tbe declarations of Sir
Charles Tupper respecting the tor-
minus, although it was long ago
pointed out by Tllfi COLUMBIAN that
the declaration might be worthless.
His excellency wastes no words of
sympathy upon the people who
have been deluded through ministerial declarations. Indeed lie
seems to think they have not even
a grievance. Ho says, in effect,
"You have got tbe wharf and the
worms, and steps have been taken
to give you the piles: what more
could you ask?" It is much to be
regretted that any of our citizens
should have been bitten by thc Port
Moody boom, but the people who
for purely-selfish purposes misrepresented tho facts and suppressed the
truth are the chief culprits.
Fair Trade.
Our cotemporary of the Colonist
rejoices exceedingly because he sees
in the present political atmosphere
a reasonable ground to hopo that
Great Britain may reverse the trado
policy that has been maintained so
mnny years and resort to protection.
Tho report that a "fair trade" measure will be introduced by the present
British government, our cotemporary says, is "almost too good to be
true." Wo do not now propose to
discuss the question of protection
and free trado or fair trade—that
would probably occupy the balance
of the year. But it has occurred to
us that the prospect of the adoption
of a protective policy in Great
Britain is not a matter over which
tho people of Canada may congratulate themselves. The "fair trade"
scheme means simply tlmt Great
Britain will impose customs duties
upon goods coming from any country where duties are put on similar
goods imported from Great Britain,
At tlie preseut time Canada levies a
very heavy duty upon almost every
nrticlo coming from tho mother
country. If the fair trade policy
is adopted by Great Britain there
will be left for us one of two courses: We can givo up our protection
and adopt a reciprocal relation; or we
can adhere to our present polioy
and let Britain put up u protective
wall against the admission of onr
products. Wo could hardly admit
British products free without seriously reducing our revenue, and at
the present timo that could uot be
dono with safety. Besides, if a
policy of reciprocity between Canada and Great Britain wero -idoptod,
we would gain nothing in comparison with tho gam to tho mothor
country. Sho receives our products
free now, and wo tax hers: under
reciprocity she would continue to
receive our products, and would be
able to flood tho Canadian market
with her manufactures, From thc*
protectionist point of viow (and tho
Colonist is an out-and-out protectionist) the proposed cliango would
be extremely disastrous becauso it
would both remove tho existing protection to Canadian industries and
take away one of our chief sources
of revenue. The imposition of customs dutios upon products entering
Great Britain would Instantly cause
tho greatest consternation to the
people of Canada. Our wheat, our
timber, our beef, our choose, our
fruit, end many other things which
are our chiof articles of export,
would be depreciated in valuo almost to the extent of the tax im
posed. Canadian wheat paying a
tax would have to compete in Liverpool with Indian wheat upon
which no tax would be levied. The
samo rulo would work in other
things, with tho result that Great
Britain, now one of our very best
markets, would be almost shut
against us. How tbo Colonist can
rejoice over tho prospect of such a
serious calamity we do not comprehend.

mHK BALANCE OF CASH ON HAND
1 and at crnlit in Bank of B.C.. 1st
January, 1885, was $1,813,33 from which,
however, lliust be dodueted $1,020, as
tliis amount wan for licenses for tho first
six mouths iu 1885, nud doea not belong
to tlio revenue of 1881. Tina leaves tlie
municipality, on the 1st January, 1885,
in debt $1(11).117 and with accounts unpaid, according to the .statement, to the
amount of $2,3112.02.
In order to carry on the buHiiicsa of
thc City, money liad to be raised, wliich
was done by means of overdrafts on the
Bank, amounting to $1)00.80, on thc collateral security of a note given by tho
Mayor k Finance Committee in their
personal names.
During 1885 tho expenses incurred in
tho passing, ke,, of thc Land Act of 188-1
amounted to $720.72 and the expenses: of
advertising tho same amounted to 842*2,
22. These sums, amounting to*?l,MS.SI4,
will bo Mi-ducted from what the land
sales amount to, The sule of the lands
did not take place till tho 27th Drcemtii-r,
tho lst payment from which— $4,402.00--
bus been received, which will explain
why these nmounts were paid out of the
ordinary income. In addition to these
items the freight on thc steam firo engine,
$587.30, has also been paid out of the
ordinary revenue, when it Rhould have
been paid out of the money raised for the
purchase, Adding these umountB to the
Balance of Cosh in Hand and in the Bank
wo find a total balance, 31st Dee., of
33,287.05, at which dato the outstanding
and unpaid accounts amount to 81,013.78.
Tho amounts in thn Statement of Liabilities for City Barrister for uxputiHcn
of legislation, $074,70, and printing anil
advertising Bales Account, $209.75, uro
quite properly not included in tho
counts payable, as tbey will be met out
of thc proceeds of the Land Bales,
Owing to tlio present Council taking
otlice when there were uo funds on band,
they could not carry on any work or improvement till late in the season, aud
even then every outlay had to bo very
carefully considered.
We can congratulate the ratepayers
with the good showing we are ablo to
make, and trust thut the incoming Couu
oil for 1880 will bo ablo to make as good
a showing, and on as sound a basis.

Thetiranvlllc Meeting.
(Reported for tlio Columbian,)
Taking advantage of the presence of
the provincial secretary ou Friday lust,
the people of Grnnville convened nu
impromptu public meeting in the large
hnll for the purposo of affording their
representative an opportunity of addressing them. The attendance wns
lai'iic, very largo, considering the shortness and inefficiency of the notice,
Charles Coldwoll, Esq., wus olected to
the chair, and Wm. Brown, Esq., (of
tho Vancouver Herald) waa appointed
secretary.
The Hon. Mr. Robson (whoso up*
pearunco on the plutform was greeted
with applause) spoke fur over au hour,
in the course of which he alluded to
the general policy of the government
of which ho is a member. Special reference was, of course, made to that
policy in so fur as it related to the extension of the railway to Coal Harbor,
and he completely vindicated the land
grant, showing that the government
had given much less orown land than
was usually given to railway companies, and considerably less than
private property owners had given in
the present instance. He dwelt upon
tho bright prospects opening up before
tbe people of Granville, and the great
responsibilities and important duties
devolving upon those now called upon
to lay the foundations of what would
undoubtedly bu une of the great cities,
if not tho greatest city of Iho north
Pacific. Amongst the more immediate
duties thoy would bo culled upon to
discharge he referred particularly to
that of making provision for having
tho city of Vancouver incorporated,
and he earnestly exhorted them, iu
any movement of that kind, to net
openly nnd above board, consulting,
and its far hb possible, acting iu harmony with the Canadian Pacific Railway Company and others largely interested in thu grunt city of tho future,
—warning thom ugninst taking any
course calculated to divide the community into contending factions at thia
the supreme moment, when it was of
such vital importance to pull together
as one man.
Before sitting down, tho speaker
suggested whether it would not be ai
well thnt the present meeting should
appoint a committee for the purpose of
preparing a hill for incorporation and
taking the necessary steps towards lhe
attainment of that object.
The remarks of the hon, gentleman
wero ropoatedly applauded, and a vote
of thanks wns enthusiastically passed.
Acting upon hid suggestion, the meeting then proceeded to appoint a committee for the purpose of promoting
tho incorporation of Vancouver, consisting of Gun. Blaok, A. M. Robb,
M.I'., C. Coldwull, R. H, Alexander,
A. G. Ferguson. Blake, Alex. Johnston, L] A. Hamilton, C.E., Jos. Munition, nnd J. Miller.

The City Elections.
According to programme, tlie returning officer, Capt. Robinson, proceeded to receive nominations for
municipal honors at the Court House
Monday morning. Under the present
law nominations aro all made in writing,
nud the turmoil and excitement usually
accompanying such meetings under tho
old order of things have entirely disappeared. The nominations handed in
were as follows:

fire department.
For chief engineer, Wm. McColl;
for assistant, S. H. Webb. These
nominations were made by the Hyacks,
and confirmed by the electors.
The time for receiving nominations
closed at 2 o'clock, and au opportunity
was then given the various candidates
to address the electors present. The
first speaker wob.
Mr. Dickinson, who briefly referred
to various questions that had come
up for the council's consideration dining the year, and justified tho notion
taken. He referred particularly to
tho railway brunch scheme, nud the
concession obtained from tho govern
ment to pay half tho bonus asked. He
promised, if elected, to give his best
attention to the completion of the railway und other matters that might come
up affecting the interests of the city
Mr. Kennedy theu spoke at great
length, and succeeded in keeping his
audience in perpetual amusement. He
mentioned a great many mutters connected with city government in which
ho claimed that radical reform wai
needed, and declared that if the electors honored him with their confidence
he would bo happy to stamp out the
abuses now existing. Ho was particularly severe upon the lawyers nnd
police court, and courageously affirmed
that if ho had the powor ho would not
permit a lawyer to open his lips in
court until he, as presiding magistrate,
had got through with tlio witness.
Then the lawyers might ask n fow questions, and that is till. He wus in fuvor
of the council guarding carefully the
water supply and by moans uf it adding
to the comfort and health of the city.
He denounced tho lax enforcement of
municipal laws against nuisances, and
also the nameless evils connected with
some of the saloons aud the establish
HshmentB down in the swamp which
wero allowed to exist without rebuke.
If he had the power (and he was quite
certain of election) he would double
tho liquor license fee, and force thu
saloon men to observe tho law., f|e
suid he could think of no term bad
enough to apply to aome of tbe men
who hud boen, but ought not to havo
been, licensed to sell liquors. He
shuddered to think of the monstrous
rascnlity the council had winked at,
and was very much afraid it would
make a mess of the railway connection
too. He did not know what his powers
or duties would be aa mayor, but felt
confident lie could post himself in -18
hours so thut he would be quito abli
lo run the machine. He charged the
bonrd of works with giving uut work
without competition, and squandering
the funds of the city.
Mr. ForriB, who is a candidate for
St. Andrew's ward, wus called upon
nnd said that ho came out because hu
had boen asked by several persons in
his ward to do so. He would not mako
ns loug a speech ns Mr. Kennedy had
mnde, nnd lie must Bay that in nil his
experience he hnd nevor listened to
such n tirade of absolute nonsense.
(Here Mr, Kennedy grabbed his hat
und rushed out amid shouts and confusion). Tho only question of import-
mice that he knew of between the
council and the people was the question of taking the Port Mcody Railway charter, for which the company
naked 9800. All ho had to say was
that if the demand was a just one it
should be paid: if it waa not, it should
be rejected. He did not court n sent
in the council, but if elected he would
do his duty as he had done herefore.
In response tu calls Mr. Elliott
denied that tho board of works had
done work without competition, All
corporation work had been advertised
and tenders asked, except somo very
small jobs which oost only a few dollars. She only departure from Ihis
rule was in the case of tilling up a
street that had become impassable.
The board had engaged Mr. Hendry
to fill it with sawdust for 3100, and
Mr, Uendry was the only person in a
position to do the work, as the othor
mill was not running.
Granite Creek niches.
Tho Stevenson mine, fty miles
from Hope and twenty-live from Granite Croek is soon to be actively worked.
Mr. Robert Stevenson, the discoverer

country since tho excitement of 18(10.
Assays were made of it in 1877 in Cariboo, Victoria and San Francisco, which
run all the way from 975 to $19,707.
This great difference is caused by tho
fuet thnt a black streak runs through
the ledge, which is from two to six

seeniB almost incredible (hat a vein of
so grent richness nud so easily accessible ahould have lain dormant for
eight years without boing worked, but
it is a hard matter to get capital inter

aud for threo years during thu uight

It is beyond all doubt that '-Myrtle
Navy" is the favorite tobacco with tho
smokers of Canada. They obtain more
enjoyment from it than from any other
tobacco made and those of them who
have used it long enough to test its
merits never abandon it for any other
brand. Tho reason for this preference
is that the "Myrtle Navy" is made of
the very finest leaf which is grown and
that in every process of its manufacture
tho moat vigilant care is exercised to
preserve tho genuine aroma of the leaf.

the storm it is thought has reached an
end.
Ciiicaoo, Jan. 8.—A blizzard is raging
at present throughout Illinois, Iowa,
Kansas, Nebraska, Dakota and Minnesota, and is declared to be of tbe widest
extent and more fierce In character than
has been known before in years. All the
western trains nre behind time; many
have been snowed in and abandoned, and
very littlo hope can be learned concerning them or of the effects of tbe storm
owing to tho blowing down of tho telegraph poles and wires, and the stoppage
of telegraph communication. Tho temperature throughout Dakota is stated to
be from 20 to 40 below zero with a wild
blizzard blowing. A telegram from Fargo Bays the thermometer registered 27
degrees below zero at noon yesterday.
It was described as the roughest experience that city Iiml yet had in the
way of boisterous weather. Bismarck
reported a high wiad with the thermometer 80 below zero. A high wind ia
prevailing nt Sioux City and the temperature is 20 below zero. Omaha registered 20° below zero. Telegraphic communication with Omaha has been cut off
nearly all day. California telegrams
wero being sent hy way of St. Paul and
Northern Pacitio with only one wire
working. A telegram trotn Des Moines,
la., says the cold wavo continues there
with a high wind and drifting suow.
All through trains west of there are
Mocked and tho branch roads are snowed
under. Chicago and Burlington train**
are stuck faat iu tho drifts about fifteen
miles south of Des Moines. The Wabash rond, south from this city, Ib badly
drifted. Fort Dodge and narrow gauge
roads have been nbandoncd, A biiow
storm prevailed throughout Illinois all
day, The weathor has not been very
severe so far, but has been growing collier to-night. All the roads to Omaha
arc repotted practically blocknded in
central Iowa.
Boston, Jan. O.—The schooner Juliet,
of Kllsworth, Me, was driven on the
rocks near Deer Island last night and tho
captain, mate and cook drowned. Reports continue to come in from points
along the coast and show that tho storm
of last night worked havoc among shipping. A Provincetown dispatch says a
large tlect of schooners, including fourteen threo-maBtcrs, were off Highland
light at sunset last night, several of
which reached Provincetown in safety-
hut ninny others were driven ashore or
foundered together. No lives are reported lost but the life-saving prows were
kept busy and there were many narrow
escape?. 0-.pt. Fislior, of the Peaked
Hills Bar life Having station, reports that
an unknown three-masted schooner
pounded along tho bars for about a mile
at day-break and finally went clear out
of the bar. He saw her crew clinging to
the rigging nnd tho vessel had apparently lost Tier rudder nnd sonic suils. It
wiw Impossible to nid her, A number of
1 oisters havu probably blown out to sea.
Tho wind reached a velocity of seventy
miles nn hour at ouo timo. At Portland
muoh ilmnngo has houn done to tho ship*
nin-; by tho storm. Thu lm:* are kept
busy saving the vessels in tho harbor,
Various sensational rumors are In circulation, but all that ii definitely known Ib
that 11 large number of vessels wore out
side last night and that there ig wreckage
afloat. The schooner Juliet struck on
thc roocks between Deer island and Win*
throp Head during the gale to-duy. She
had six persons ou board, three of whom
lost their lives—Capt Leach, Chas. Four-
gee, mato, and Jas. Dunn, steward.
New York, Jan* 0.—The snow storm
which raged a]l last night with unabated
fury, continued during to-day. It was
accompanied by a very high wind which
caused drifts in shallow places. It also
bus the effect of delaying travel in the
city. To a great extent tho storm seriously interfered with the prompt arrival
of the- mails. A number of vessels parted
their hawsers and went floating at thc
mercy of wind and tide. At least two
are missing and have probably flouted
out to sea.
Scrofula is known by swelling of the
glands of the neck, abscesses, sores, a
pale countenance, low vitality, and gen-
oral signs of bad blood. Burdock Blood
Bitters cures the scrofulous condition by
making pure healthy blood.
SPECIAL DESPATCHES.
Lonuon, .lun. 10.—The Creek government has made overtures to thc government of Montenegro looking to the
formation of an alliance both offensive
and defensive against tha Porte. The
king of Greece will leave his capital
shortly for tho Thessnlian frontier to inspect thc army. It is supposed that thia
will be a prelude to tho beginning of
hostilities. The Greek government has
received from Prince Bismarck a reply to
a circular note sent recently to the great
powers, concerning tho Balkan question
and the attitude of Greece in connection
therewith. The German chancellor
warns Greece that if she engages in war
with Turkey bIio will do so at her own
risk, and that she may expect no assistance from any of the great powers, all
of which hold themselves aloof from tbo
controversy.
London, Jan. 11,—The daily Telegraph says thc powers have di rounded
that Greece, Servia, and Bulgaria demobilize thoir armies. Thu Times says
Kngland proposes that Turkey shnll also
demobilize her army. The Spanish government has refused to grant a laud
coaling station on one of thc Cnrolinc
islands,

The Fakir of India.
. The fakirs of India are much the
■)rt of people as the dervisus of Persia
nd Turkey: a species of mendicant
milks who have succeeded iu bring-
:ig asceticism to a very effective sys-
etn. Although in India there are to
o found a large number of ascetic
rders, the fakir order is the largest,
t having been estimated to contain
ver a million believers. Some live
ho life of hermits—these are the high*
st in rank—while others asaemblo in
urge bodies and traverse the country
legging nnd instructing the people in
heir duties to Brahma, The itinerant
nonks are armed with spears and bat-
le axes, and it is considered unsafe
or a stranger to meet them alone iu
,n isolated placo. According tn Hasan al Bassri, tho fakir has the ten
.ttributes of a dog: ho is always hull*
fry; ho has no sure abiding place; he
vatches at night; ho never abandons
its master, oven whon ill-treated; ho
s satisfied with Ihi lowest place, giv-
ng up even that to whoever asks it;
ie loves the hand that heals liim;
ceepB still while others unt; nccom-
-anies his master whither ho goes, and
eaves no heritage after death. Tho
ligual for prayers in
THR CLANKING OF HIS CHAIN'S,
vhen the followers of Brnhma prose
tround him, embrace hia feet, and
isten lo hia counsel and precepts. He
ins recipes for tho cure of paralysis,
md makes a specialty of curing sterile
yomen. The class or order of fakirs
ieh.1 in the highest esteem are the
'hildren of poor parents who spend
,hoir lives in seclusion in mosques, do
■tiling their time to the study of the
Koran and its laws until they are qua-
itied for the degreo of "niollahs" or
lectors of theology. Theso fakirs of-
:on inflict upon themselves the sovcr-
■«t penances. Some remain bent forward in the form of a right angle until
:hey grow into this shapo. Others
dIiico tiro upon tho crown of ihuir
leads until their scalps nre burned to
lite bone. Fukirs havo been known to
"iislen thu wrist to Ihe ankle, nnd iu
:his painful position to perform journeys of many miles, rolling over tho
ground like a cartwheel. These pon-
mces arc undergone to prove to the
believing aud unbelieving equally, tho
spocial protection Brahma is affording
the sufferers in his name.   The
MOST   KXTIUORDINAIIY PEAT
Dei-formed by these ascetics is, undoubtedly, that of being buried alive,
in nccount of wliich waa published recently in a Vienna paper by Dr. Hon*-
igberger, former court physician to
the Rajah of Lahore, nnd corroborated
by Sir Claudius Wade, English envoy
resident of Lahore, This feat of physical endurance throws tho forty days'
Casting of Dr. Tanner completely into
the shade. The preparations made by
these fakirs when abc.ut to subject
themselves to the dangers of inhumation are thus described by the doctors:
The first duty consists in the construction of a tomb or cave from which tho
air and light can be wholly excluded,
to be entered by a small door, which is
walled up with clay as soon as thu fakir
outers. Thia cave is provided with a
soft bed formed of sheepskin!- and cotton. In order to accuBtom himself to
this abode, the experiment ist begins
by remaining here at iirst but a few
hours every day, increasing the time
to several days, or until he can almost
wholly exist without air. During this
preliminary inhabitation of his tomb,
he passes his time in meditation upon
tho power of divinity, chanting his
prayers, and counting the Brahmic
chaplet until he in able to pronounce
six thousand wuttU in less than twelve
hours. He also accustoms himself to
jsitions in which the feet are elevated
-h tho nir and the head hanging down
near to the earth, or the limbs bent,
; doubled, nnd twisted into all sorts of
contortions.   Aftor this practice with
1 the hinges of the body conies tho
TRAINING OF THE llESl'IKATOKV OllliA.VS.
Beginning by holding his breath for
five minutes, he soon succeeds in holding it twenty. He also practices the
feat of inflating his lungs, allowing the
uir to escape by degrees, until the
power he acquires in this direction is
something marvellous, Thou follows
the weekly incisions of the under
muscles of the tongue, twenty-four of
which are made, wheu this organ be
coines susceptible of being cur red bo aa
to completely close the opening of the
luriivx. To accelerate this object the
tongue is frequently treated with
astringent oils, and rolled back and
maipulated by the fingers for hours.
In addition to theso special preparations, the fakir observes the rules uf his
aste, notably that of abstaining from
all animal food. After having eaten,
to remove all particles adhering to tho
coatings of the stomach, he swallows,
ut regular intervals, a long, narrow strip
of linen, which ho soon withdraws
from the mouth again. Aftor tho accomplishment of this severe course of
training, which usually requires several
ninths, the fakir is ready to undertake the trial of inhumation. The most
noted of tho fakirs who had passed
through this ceremony was Ilarides,
whoso burial was witnessed by Dr.
Honigbcrger, nnd -whose portrait is
now in his possession. On the day appointed, iu the presence of tho court
and a largo concourse of people, Iluri-
dea appeared in their midst, and seating himself
UPON A WHITE SHROUD,
crossed his legs and turned his face
towards tlie east. His countenance
was serene, his expression exalted.
Centring his eyes upon the extremity
of his nose, in a short space of time
the magnetic catalepsy was produced.
The oyes gradually closed, and tlie
limbs became rigid. The servant of
the fakir— Haridos being an ascotic of
the highest order—hurried forward to
close his eyes and plug the apertures
of his noso with linen saturated with
(melted wax. Wrapping tho body in
its shroud he closed it over the fakir's
head, tying the ends firmly, after
whioh the body presented the appearance of a filled sack. This knot was
sealed with the seul of the rajah, and
Iho body, now inclosed in a wooden
Ibox, sealed in liko manner, was placed
in the cave, the door of which was
closed, sealed, nnd walled in with clay.
This tomb was guarded day and night,
and thousands of pious Hindoos remained about tho spot, glorifying tho
paint who was bolioved now to bo
enjoying the spocial favor of Brahma.
It wu a time of
OHEAT BEIitOXOUB EXULTATION.
■ When the day agreed upon for Hari-
idea' exumtition arrived, the rajah and
hia court appeared at the tomb. Or*
lering the dried day to be removed,
ind examining tbe seals of the door
nd finding thwt intact, he uuwd thi
cave to bo opened. Nothing hnd been
disturbed: everythim* remained us
when tho fakir entered upon his long
sleep. The doctor upon touching the
shroud found it covered with moisture.
Upon tho servants removing tho body
from the box lie allowed it. to stand
upright ngainst the cover for some
moments while he proceeded to pour
warm wnter over the top of tho sack.
Upon tho removal of the sack the doctor requested to be allowed lo examine
the body before any attempt was mado
at I'osusoitation, Ho found the legs
and arms wrinkled and stiff, the hoad
resting upon tho right shoulder; no
pulsation in the arms or legs wiib
discernible, nor in tho region of tho
heart. The whole body was cold with
tho exception of the head, upon which
the warm wnter had been poured. Tho
servant was now hurriediy occupied in
bathing tho body, aftor which ho vigorously rubbed the limbs, arms, and
body with course linen cloths, Applications of warm cataplasms were made
upon the head, to bu repeated ns soon
as cooled. The linen plugs wero removed frum the nostrils and fho mouth
opened, but tliu fakir
STILL RKStAINBD INANIMATE,
nud tho doctor began to doubt tho possibility of his resuscitation, although
repeatedly assured that such would be
the cuse, Hnrides having sovoral times
before passed some time in a stale of
suspended animation, A knife was
now brought, and tho tonguo unrolled
and placed in its normal position. It
would not stay, nnd tho servant was
obliged to uso fnce for a time to hold it
iu its place, The eyelids wero rubbed
with oil, and the servant raised them.
Tho eyes appeared glussy and staring.
After several applications of the warm
cataplasms upon the cranium the body
waB noticed to tremble slightly, the
nostrils to dilute, the pulse to feebly
move, and the limbs lo become moro
pliable. Upon covering tho tonguo
with oil or butlor again, it was seen to
move perceptibly, aud the eyes tu partially recover their brightness. The
fakir was indeed returning to life. For
some moments ho appuared engaged in
collecting his wandering thoughts,
which, when accomplished, be turned
to the rajah and calmly inquired:
"1)0 YOU   BELIEVR IN MB NOW?"
The wholo process of resuscitation
hnd occupied somewhat more than an
hour's time. Although weak and pnr
ttnlly dazed in his perceptions, tin
fakir was enrried to tho residence of
the rajah, whore he was seated at iho
head of the royal table, clothed with a
robe of honor, a chain of pearls placed
about Ins neck, and gold bracelets eu
circled his wrists. For six weeks he
had lain in his gravo, and the feast
was ordered in honor of his return to
life. Thia same fakir was buried by
the Rajah of Lahore, in a grave dug
in the earth, the soil pressed down
around his coffin, a foot of soil covering it, which wns afterwards sown with
barluy. At the end of four months he
was taken out alive, to tho surprise of
tho rajah himself. Modern science
has not been able to shed much light
upun this phenomenon. It is evident,
howover, that the fakirs nro hypnotized previous to their interment, at
least such is claimed to be the case by
the advocates of animal magnetism.
It is well known thnt iu the European
hospitals cases of absolute lethargy
occur, tho suspension of animation
lasting sometimes for several months;
but how a human being, after being
reduced to tho minimum of iiis vital
functions, can exist without air, nourishment, or liquids is a question the
students of physical science will find
it hard to explain, The Hindoo may
be able to solve llio mystery for him,
however.
The Little Empty Stocking.
A gentleman who has a charitable
wifo was informed last Christmas Eve,
on his return from business, that slit
know ono little child who was going to
hang up her stocking and who didn't
stand ono chance in a thousand of finding in it in the morning.
That waa just tho sort of nn opportunity for n charitable deed which the
gentleman had been looking for. Ha
had spent a good deal of money on
benevolent objects, but had never had
the pleasuro of knowing just what
good had been accomplished.
We'll All that stocking chuck up,"
ho said.   "Whoro is it?"
The case hnd como to the lady's
notice through ono of thc servant
girls, who had seen the child and
learned what her intention was, and
also discovered the dubious prospect
ahead.
After dinner tho man and his wife
went out and bought candies, toys,
stockings, mittens, a hood, a pair of
shoes and a Bled, and taking them
with them lhey visited the place to
which they had been directed, and,
suro enough, there wns the little stocking hanging up on a doorpost. It was
au unenviable home. Filth and squalor were enthroned. The child's
mother received tho visitors graciously,
and tho lady went to work with a vim
to dress up the stocking in stylo. As
it hnd a hole in it and was not very
clean, nothing but toys and stockings
and mittens wero put in it, but tho
candy aud the hood and the sled wero
safely bestowed on tho floor beneath
it. Taking nn admiring survoy of the
situation, the happy couple departed,
satisfied that one porson at least would
have reason to bless them for their
generosity. It appears that they underestimated the number of tho bone-
ticiuries. Thorn were two of thorn.
When they had been goue hnlf an
hour or so and there was no lunger
any danger that thoy would roturn
the father crawled out from under the
bed, and, taking the pretty things in
his hands, he soon exchanged them
at a pawn shop for about $3 in cash,
and with this ho purchased much
whiskey, tobacco and suusages, whicli
ho generously carried home to share
with his wife. After she iind tnkon
hold of thu bottle once or twice Bhe
was heard to remark that thin wns
"soinethimr liko Christmas," nud tho
fond husband agreed with her.
Jack Frost built castles and crystnl
forests on tho window panes. The
stars slmno dear und bright and tho
newly-fallen snow sparkled liko a
mantle of silver undor fout. The grent
oity quiotod down savo horo and there
where no quiet ever is. Dreaming of
the morrow everybody slept.
The father and mother slept presently, whon tho bottle and jug wero empty.
Tho child hnd slept through it till,
The empty stocking hung on tho door.
