The following remarkable and
rather doubtful story comes from
Chicago under a recent date: Dr.
Walter Kempster, superintendent of
the Insane Asylum at Oshkosh,
Wis., passed through Chicago this
morning on his way to Washington.
In his valise he had a bottle containing several nuggets of gold.
They were taken from what is alleged to be a mine of almost fabulous
wealth, eighteen miles from Washington. The mine is on the Maryland shore of the Potomac, about
two miles from Great Falls, where
the water supply of Washington is
obtained. The discovery was made
in a most peculiar manner. Dr.
Kempster was visiting his friend,
who lives in Washington, and in
seeing the sights examined the
water-works. On the banks of the
r.-servo'r, midway between the falls
and the works, was some newly
laid rubble. The doctor picked up
a piece of stone and found it to be
gold-bearing quartz. After he had
left, his friend prosecuted an inquiry
as to where the rock came from.
This led to the finding of the mino
in Montgomery county. Many test-
pits have already been sunk and
disclose rich veins of gold in rotten
quartz, which assay proves of very
high grade. For six months Dr.
Kempster's partner to the seoret
has been operating test-pits and
taking out large quantities of ore,
which is now awaiting crushers, and
to preserve the secret and purchase
at fair rates the adjoining property,
a force of negroes has been employed in the wild and unfrequented
locality and not allowed to visit
town or leave the premises, provisions being brought to them. The
story is regarded here as overdrawn.
It is reported that there is, likely
to be serious trouble between two
factions of highbinders in San
Francisco, and that a large proportion of the Chinese in that city
habitually go armed and ready for
the conflict whenever it comes. The
Bulletin of a late date says: In
order to intimidate the valorous
highbinder who has been making so
muoh trouble of late, the officers of
of Captain Douglas' watch made a
raid on Chinatown Wednesday
night. Fifty men were separated
into five aquads and they entered
the quarter from as many directions.
The appearance of the police spread
consternation through the streets,
the celestials not knowing where
the blow was to fall. The watchers
ofthe gambling dens, sat secure
behind their half-closed iron doors,
smiled grimly, but did not close
their establishments. Their fortifications are proof against police
clubs and axes. The polico however, marched quietly by the tan
games and confined their raids to
the dens where^the fascinating
game of dominoes was in progress.
The crowds of Chinese were stood
up and searched for weapons. A
few vigorous blows from axessmash-
ed the tables, chairs and other paraphernalia of the gambling-den, and
the dominoes themselves were scattered over the street. Among the
hundreds of highbinders searched
last night only one was taken to
the city prison on a charge of carrying concealed weapons, and the
weapon in this instance was nothing more formidable than a set of
brass knuckles. The police infer
from this that news of the raid
reached the quarter before the raiders did, aud tho highbinder hastily
laid away his weapons. Aftor
cleaning out all the domino games
that oould be reached, the officers
made their way back to the
station, and Chinatown assumed
a quietness and peaceful aspect
quite unusual to it The recent
assassinations have put overy
Chinaman upon his guard, and anticipating at any time a fusillade
between the Bo Sin Scar nnd the
Gy Sin Sear men, the more discreet
portion of the inhabitants remained
indoors. The officers most familiar
with theOhincse and thoir ways say
thittlthoend isnotyet. Thefoud which
has been aroused in Chinatown will
not ceaso until ono side or the other
makes a complete surrender. The
better class of Ohinese, despairing
of protection undor our laws, and
weary of the swuy of the highbinders, are taking every precaution to
sell their lives ns dearly as possible
should affairs come to a crisis. Arms
have been secured and special police
aid summoned.
Peter Klcfter, Kirflalo, says: "I was
badly bitten by a horso a few days ago,
and was induced by a friend, who witnessed tho occurrence, to try Pr, Thomas' Kclectric Oil. It relieved tho pain
almost immediately, nud in four days
tho wouud was completely healed. Nothing can be better for fresh wonnds."
Sec that you got the genuine Dr. Thomas'
Eolectrio Oil, as thero aro imitations on
tho market.

NO NEWS FROM   STANLEY.
Brussels, Dec. 10.- Despatches
from tho Congo Free State received
hero to-night make no mention of
Henry M. Stanley, nor do they report
any news front Stanley Falls. An uneasiness is felt that will doVelop into
sorious anxiety if December shall pass
without news of Stanley's expedition.
THE   TENSION INCREASED.
Pestii, Dec. 10.—Tho press of thia
city is unanimous in ita opinion that
yesterday's article in the Military Gazette of St. Petersburg has greatly increased the tension of the situation between Russia and hor neighbors. The
Pester Lloyd saya Austria must prepare herself militarily, thereby involving large expenses. "Rouraania
must, in any event, "says that paper,
"remain neutral." Thoso who are
best informed iu officials circles bolieve that Russia will not venture to
challenge the triple alianco.
PLANTING ENEMIES.
London, Deo. 16.—Lord Rosobery
said that ho was sorry Mr. Chamberlain was not likely to be successful in
his mission to America, mainly on account of the Irish vote which he had
antagonized. "Wo planted enemies
in America," aaid Ihe speaker,
" through our own policy, and the
only way in whioh we may now secure
success, is to make friends of them."
LAUAR'S APPOINTMENT DENOUNOED.
New York, Deo. 16.—The National republican club's convention met at
Chickering hall to-day. A resolution
denouncing Mr. Lamar's appointment,
as an Associate Justice of tno Supreme
court of the United States, was re-
fered to a committee. It was as follows: "Whereas, it is the opinion of
the National convention of republican
olubs that no man who, at any time,
denounced Abraham Lincoln while
he was President of the United States,
as a "buffoon," and "clown," or who
ever declared from his seat in the
United States senate that no man
should denounce Jefferson Davis as a
traitor in his presence, andgounrebuk-
ed by him, or who, in his official capacity as the secretary of tho interior,
ordered that the flag of the United
States should be displayed at half-mast
on the occasion of the death of Jacob
Thompson, or who, as a senator of tho
United States many years after tho
war, refused to vote that the 13th,
14th andloth amendments to the constitution are valid and binding, ought
to be appointed to, or hold, the high
office of justice of the Supremo court
of the United States. Therefore, it is
resolved that L. T. Q. Lamar ought
not to have been appointed Justioe of
the said court." Senator Everts, who
was appointed permanent chairman, in
a strong, able speech, denounced the
actionjof the Domocratic'party's present
policy. Referring to President Cleveland's message, ho scathingly criticized
it, and declared that the Republicans
were committed to protection.
THE CROWN PRINCE'S CONDITION.
San Remo, Doc. 16.—Ono of the
crown princess' ladies iu waiting in
responding for tho princess to an addross of sympathy from tho Tyrolcse
Seilterchal to-day says: "To tho doc*
tors' surprise the health of the crown
firiuce is wonderfully good. Theswel-
ing noticed three weeks ago is normally healed. So far there is no trace
of any fresh growth, but in the unanimous opinion of tho physicians we
must not yet have a full hopo of the
prince's recovery. We must, howover,
be thankful for every day that passes
without fresh symptoms of disease discovering themselves." Since tho
prince has takon daily exorcise in tho
open air, he hns a fresh, healthy complexion, and anybody who sees him
could scnrely believe him to bo a lost
man. He bears himself with great
tranquility of mind, nnd at timos is
more ohcorful.

Washington, D. O., Dec. 17.—Mr.
McDougall Q.C, C.B, formerly member of Canadian parliament and cabinet minister under several administra-
tions, is here to correct the misunderstanding aB to the true condition of
things in Canada on the subject of
trade relations with the United States.
He says four fifths of his people favor
commerioial reciprocity for various
roasons, and believes a reciprocity
treaty would prove highly beneficial to
both countries. As to the prospect of
a satisfactory settlement of thefisherid
trouble Mr. McDougall said it wu
impossible to discover what progress,
if any, had been made. He does not
believe the treaty of 1818 wu intend
ed to debar the purchase ef supplies
in Canadian ports.

West Indies and Demerara. They
will play at St. Thomas, St Croix, St
Kitts, Barbadoei, Trinidad and Georgetown. At Trinidad they will be entertained by Sir Wm. Robinson, th*
governor of the island, and balls and
dinners in their honor have bun arranged in sevoral other places.
THE RUSSIAN ORGAN DEFIANT.
Brussels, Dec. 17.—The Russian
organ, LeNord, is defiant. It fully
justifies the massing of Russian troop*
in. and around Wsrssw and th*
strengthening of the lines on the German and Austrian frontiers. It uy*
Russia claims full right to defend herself and to take measure* to make aggression disastrous to the agmtor,
otherwise she would cease to be a great
power and lose her proper place
among nations. In this sentiment all
classes agree, and sovereign and subjects are in accord.
A BETTER REPORT.
London, Dec. 17.—Dr. MoKensi*'s
roport of the appearance of theeroWn
prince's throat fully confirms the bulletin issued by physicians in charge
before he arrived at San Remo. He
finds a new but smsll growth, not
malignant, on the ventrioular bud,
but the tumor formed in October
which caused so much alarm hu basoned in sizo and causes no alarm to

Tlie patched-up friendship between Russia nnd Germany does not
seem to stay, and rumors of war nre
now more common than they wero
before the meeting of tho emperor
and the czar, lt was a fortunate
thing for Europe that Italy entered
into the triple alliance. Germany,
Austria, Italy und Britain form a
combination against which only the
most reckless nation would bo insane
enough to march its armies; and although Russia and France have the
material for an immense army, and
are by no means without other resources, the end of such a conflict
Would be easy to predict. Franco
and Russia both entertain a cordial
hatred for Germany, and both aro
likewise jealous of Great Britain;
but the alliances against thorn are
of such a nature that one cannot believe it possible that they will commit or even invite a conflict.
A Winnipeg gentleman has sont
a communication to tho Vancouvor
council for the purpose of ascertaining what assistance might be ex-
peoted if he should erect and operate a flouring mill at that oity.
The council has taken no action beyond furnishing an assurance that
it is disposed to give assistance if
the mill proposed by the applicant
should bo extensive enough to make
it nn object worth securing. We
think it is very probable that an extensive flouring mill will be established before long somewhere in this
district, and there are really only
two'places where it could be opor-
ated successfully—Westminstor and
Vancouver. The place where the
greatest inducements aro offered in
the way of local advantages and
bonus will probably get the mill.
In a former article we showed that
the local advantages wero decidedly
at Westminster.
There must be very great satisfaction among tho party newspapers
of Victoria over the Comox election.
The Colonist intimates that Mr.
Dingwall will route tho opposition candidate " horse, foot aud artillery;" while the Times is equally
sanguine of the triumphant return
of Mr. Humphreys. One of the
young ladies of the high school yesterday read an admirable essay in
which"it wns stated that anticipation was sometimes tbo source of
more pleasure than realization.
Possibly this may provo truo of the
Oomox contest, and it is to be
hoped the organs may enjoy to the
fullest possible extent whatever satisfaction there is to be takon from
victories that have not been won.
It is quite certain tbat both the
candidates cannot be elected, and
pur only wish now is that the electors may exercise the franchise with
independent honesty and place at
tho head of the polls tho person who
is worthy of their largest confidence
and will test advance their interests. It would be a great pity if
theeloction should be carried by
improper influences and result in
adding one more to the number of
unscrupulous members who ought
to havo uo place in the house.
Richard Mansill, of Rock Island,
111., is not content with having won
n moderate degree of celebrity as a
weather prophet, and he is now
turning his prophetic accomplishments into other channels. He
predicts that noxt year cholera will
probably visit the United States,
and that it will likely come during
the latter part of the winter, and
that its destructive work will be
first seen in the southern states.
The reasons for this opinion are
given, and arc of great interest to
all who care to observe the way in
which definite results are made to
follow definite causes. It is well
known that the common breeding
groundof Asiaticcholeraislndia. The
conditions in some parts of that vast
region are most favorable to tho
preservation and development of the
dreaded plague, and these germs arc
to a great extent scattered into
other countries through tho agency
of religious pilgrimages. The Hindoos have what is known as tho 12-
year pilgrimages, in which an enormous number of people take part.
During the first year of tho 12-year
pilgrimages comparatively few people visit the sacred shrines, but in
eaoh successive year the number increases, and in the twelfth year the
pilgrims sometimes aggregate from
two to three millions. Such a vast
concourse, living in dirt and exposed to all kinds of inconveniences
and deprivations, become a nest of infection. Their conditions are such
as to make them an easy prey to
disease, whieh they are almost cortain to contract and carry away
with them to other lands. Cholera
always exists in India, and scarcely
a yenr passes in which it does not
smite the inhabitants of some other
country, but the 12th pilgrimage
year is above all fruitful in spreading
th* plague whero it does not naturally belong. In thete days of rapid
transit, epidemics travel with a
swiftness which was unknown
twenty years ago, and it is doubtful
whether the protective appliances
furniahed by tho researches of
science have more than kopt pace
with the increased facilities for
altaok.

The Queen's Health In Water.
Mr. John Bright, M.P., who pro-
Bided at tho banquet given to Lord
Hartington, in hiB address said: On
an oceaaion like this, public or semi-
publio, it is tho custom amongst Englishmen to express their desire for tho
health and happiness of the Queen.
Some drink it in wino, whilst ofchars,
myself among tho number, drink of
what wo consider a more wholcsomo,
aB it is a more ancient bovcrago, that
Nature, excopt in vory exceptional
seasons, abundantly provides for us.
But whether wino bo tho medium, or
water, we are all united in our earnest
-wishes for tlie health and happiness of
tho Queen."

Water.
Did you ever fool tho tonguo dry,
tho lijSfe parched, and tho throat feverish, nnd then, bringing a goblet filled
with pure water to your lips, do you
not: remember tho sensation as it
trickled ovor your tonguo and gurgled
down your throit? Was it not a luxury to quench thirst in pure spring
water. Hero is a beverage brewed for
us by our Heavenly Father—brewed,
too, in beautiful places, and not amid
the smoky tiros, tho horrid stonch,
and rank corruption that fosters round
the brew-house und distillery. Our
Father brews a drink for his own
children in lovely places, down in
grassy dell, whore the red deor wanders and the child loves to play; down
where the brooks murmur and tho rills
givo out their music; thero Ho brows
pure water, fur away on tho mountain
top, whose grauito peak glitters liko
gold in tho sunlight; away again, on
the wide, wild sea, where the hurricane howls its mournful melody, aud
the st onu sends buck the chorus sweeping the march of God.
There Ho brews the beautiful water.
Aud beautiful it always is. You see
it glistening in the dewdrop, you hem-
it singing iu the summer rain, you see
it sparkling in the ico gem when tho
trees seem loaded with rich jewels.
Look at it as it glitters in the hoar
frost, on which the sun is shining.
Beautiful wator! duueing in tho hailstorm ; leaping, foaming, dashing in
the cataract, Bparkling in tho fountain.
Boautiful water! See how it weaves
a golden gauze for tho sotting sun,
and a silvery tissue for the midnight
moonl Watch it descending in the
feathery snowllake, or painting with
fairy pencil flowers nnd leaves upon
tho window-pane, or covering with a
mantle of whito tho wintry world 1
Look as it trickles down tlie mountain
Bide; liko silver riUms, mixing with
heather bloom!' Mark it settling on
the mountain top, till it seems ns if
it lifted up its glorious face to kiss tho
very heavens! Beautiful water! rolling up tho valley in the cloud mists, or
weaving tho gorgeous rainbow; its
warp, the rain-drop of the earth; its
woof, Heaven's bright sunbeam.
Beautiful water! There is no bloodstain in ita crystal depths, no madness
and no murmur in its foam. It never
broke a mother's heart; it never ruined
a reputation; it never sont n pour
wretch shrieking to tho gallows. No
poison bubbles on its brink, Nover
did pale-faced wife, or starving child,
or broken-heartod mother, weep into
it a bitter tear; never did drunkard
hurl back from his death-bod a fearful
ctirffo upon it. There is no curso upon
it. Sing songs of ruby wino if you
will, hand round tho goblet if you
cIiobo, but
"Olvo water to me, lirlnjj water to mo;
ll cooti ih tin' hrow, il eo'ilutli the hrntii,
It makctli thu weak man strong attain."
Young women, in tho glory of your
womanly beauty, speak out and tell
us; young men, in tho majesty of your
intellectual power, stand up and tell
us. Have we not common sense on
our sido when we would dash from the
lips of the young for ever tho drink
that debases and degrades, and give
them as their best and purest beverage, the gift of God, browod in
beautiful places for His ohildren.
Because our principle is lawful, and
good, and expedient, and reusouabl****,
and sensible, I say we shall succeed.
I shall not live to see it; but when I
die I pray God that I may bo in harness,
battling for tho cause, witii excelsior
for iny motto, in tho hope that a hotter day is coming, nnd in tho humble,
reverent faith that God will speed the
right.—J. li. Gough.

The following very curious case of far-
reaching results from defective punctuation is vouched for by the Eoyal Geographical Society:
"Manirhoorfa is a paradise on the borders of I'hlna. Though a luxurious and
luxuriant land, it has, however, for years
been considered a country of ice and
•now, and all because its great mountain
is misspelt 'Cha'ng-pai-shan for Ch'ang-
pai-slian.' The latter is its real name,
and means 'the long white mountain'—
tho white pumice-Blanc being referred to.
Gha'ns, however, means 'perpetual' and
misplacing tho comma, both Chineso and
European Geographers concluded that a
land with a 'perpetual white mountain'
must ke cold and sterile. Bo they
brought the top of tho mountain above
the snow-line, and gave out to tho world
that this 'Gardon of Eden' was another
Iceland. Such it has beon hold for
ages."
Balloons In High Altitudes.
The recent attempt mado by somo
French arronauts to reach a great height
abovo the earth has not been productive
of any particular scientific results. The
balloon in which the ascent was made
reachod an altitude of over 20,000 feet
without the occupants of the car experiencing any ill effects, except a tendency
to faintness on the part of ono of them.
When about 12 years ago a similar attempt was made, and the height of 25,-
000 feet was reached.it was with fatal
results to three out ofthe four arronautes.
The success of the present experiment is
explained by tho allegation that the difficulties due to tho rarefaction of the atmosphere only begin at an altitude of
23,0U0 to 24,000 feet. This view seems
supported by the fact that in tho Himalayas and the Andes heights of about
20,001) feet have been on several occasions
reached without any inconvenience. In
such cases, however, the ascent has always been gradual. The ill effects experienced in balloons are possibly duo to
the suddenness of tho change.—London
Spectator,
An Opera Dell.
A new operatic representation in Paris
Introduces a deep tolling which could
osdinarily be givon only with a church
bell weighing 15X00 pounds. The production of this deep tone with available
apparatus, has been the subject of much
study and experiment, and the problem
has been finally solved by Mr. Sax, ol
saxophone and saxhorn fame.- This be
has done with a bell of peculiar form
weighing only fifteen pounds. It consists
of a sheet of brass rolled into the shape
of a cornet, soldered, and then hammered into superposed inflations, that
finally give the wholo a parabolic form.
The timbre, pitch and intensity of tbe
sound yielded vary according to the
number, form and arrangement of the
inflations. In the tolling, the vibrations
aro prolonged by means of two saxhorns
and a small bell sounding, two octaves
higher, and the result is impressive
This is ono of tho many modern applications of science to stage olfccts.
Overwork ot th. Drain.
Thore is as much danger of hurting
the brain by idleness as by overwor It.
According to a writer. Dr. liiriiLiliurnuu
argues that intellectual power is lessened
by tho listlessness in which the well-to-
do classes generally spend their lives.
Under such conditions the brain gradually loses its health, and. although equal
to the demands of a routine existence, is
unable to withstand the strain of sudden
emergency. So, when a load of work is
unexpectedly thrown on it In its unprepared state, the wont consequences of
what may be called overwork show
themselves. Similarly a man accustomed
lo sedentary pursuits is liable to be physically injured by taking suddenly too
violent exercise. Dr. Karquharsou further says that so long as a brainworker
can sleep well, eat well, and tako a fair
proportion of out-door exercise he is salo
to keep on. When any of these conditions fail it is time to cry a halt.

A German paper recommends casein
and alumina as the best means to make
linen and calico impermeable. Eight
pounds of casein is stirred up in fllty-
two and a half pints of water, and two
and a quarter ounces of slaked lime is
added; four pounds of neutral soap is
dissolved at the same time in forty-two
pints oi water, and mixed with the casein
solution. The articles are to be immersed
in this solution, pressed, or wrung ont,
and afterwards brought into a warm solution of acetate of alumina, the temperature of which is about fifty to sixty
degrees centigrade, and Is Intended for
making the casein insoluble. The articles are finally placed for a very short
time in nearly boiling water, and then
dried. ■

What Physicians Say About the
STARR KIDNEY PAD,
"Treatment by Absorption has for some
time been recognized by Medical Men to
be the most simple and effectual means
of conveying to Diseased Oignns, "Curatives," but in cases of Kidney Disease and
Complaints attendant thereon successful
treatment was practicably Impossible until the introduction of the Starr Kidney
Pad, It costs less than a single prescription and Is immeasurably more decisive
and effective than any quantity of internal
Medicinal dosing. Worn Immediately over

as required to insure ln return their healthy action and original vigour. It Is comfortable to the patient and pleasant In its

discovery as a true remedy for Kidney
Diseases was never made.—Medical Gazette

This. Association merits the
confidence the Public is reposing in it from the following
FACTS:-
The Socnmy offered to nollcy 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 oannot be misled as to their contracts.
Its statements to the public can be readily understood, Its cash statement showing every item of income and how expended.
Its position is ascertained annually from
a detailed valuation tn which every Hem
of liability Is included.
Its progress has been unexampled In
the history of Insurance in Canada.
Its policies are Indisputable after threo
years, and non-forfeltable after two years'
existence.
Its nroflts are distributed upon an equitable basis. Tho proflts to one class of
policy holders are not lessoned to give
larger profits to any other class, which
method affords superior advantages over
the uniform bonus plan of distribution.

The Winnipeg Hotel, owned by

that the building will be used here ns

Hallway obstructions.
Tho C.P.R. aro still having a grout
dcnl of trouble with the bridges at
Nicomon, Last night mails and pns-
sengors wero transferred by meaiiB of
a temporary bridge which lias been

made through one of our leading notaries on Monday last. It is gratifying to know that the people of Washington Territory, and Tacoma especially, have an abiding faith in tha mineral wealth of this province. Mr.
Jackson anticipates a further sale of
SlOO.C'JO worth of stock to American
capitalists during tho wintor mouths.

AutUrnclte Coal.
Major Stowart wont wost to Anthracite last night. He states that the demand for the anthracite far exceeds
all possibility of keeping up with it.
They could, he says, soil 200,000 tons
a yoar if it could ba mined. Tho company is now preparing for a very
largoly increased output. They aro
dealing almost wholly with British
Columbia and California consumers,
who pronounce the coal superior to the
Pennyslvonia article, and being cheaper it easily controls the market. Tho
major says tho reason so much slate
is mixed with the coal Bent to Calgary
is on account of their boing able to
send only tho small stuff here. Thnt
sent west is in large chunks and perfectly pure.—Canary Tribune,
_. m +. m        ■.—
The China Steamer.
The C. P. R, steamship Batuvia did

to arrive about Christmns. Capt.
Webber, who is in town, said that
until different customs regulations
were in forco tjie steamer, bo far ns he
was concerned, would not call at Victoria. If there was a mail directed for
Victoria, it would bo landed in the
pih.t bout. Nu passengers would bo
landed nt this point unless, as above
stated, it could be dono without thero
being a lengthened detention to tho
boat, and this auld bo ouly accomplished by tho customs authorities
waiving the usual routine of compelling the captain or purser to present
himself at tho custom houso.—Coton-
ist.	
Troublesome Half-lm-vd.
Last night a young man named
Grant, who is employed by tho C.P.R.
ns car cleaner, while performing his
duties was intorupted by tho appearance of a drunken half-breed namod
Jim Hutcheson who insisted that they
should go aud drink tone thev. Grant
refused to have anything to do with
Hutcheson who became so threatening iu his manner that Grant loft the
car and went in search of tho police.
Meeting constable Carty ho told his
story and the two wont down to tho
station yard, and were just iu
timo to see Hutcheson making oil" with
a broom and a duster. Tho moment
tho half-breed saw the constable he
made off in tho direction of tho river.
Constable Carty followed close and
Hutcheson seeing ho could not escape
jumped into the rivor whero ho would
havo boen drownod but for tho exertion nf the con."tablo. Ho was
brought before tho police magistrate
this morning who inflicted a fino of

The Sale of Work.
A representative of tho Com'muian
was permitted this afternoon to inspect
the articles which aro to bo offered for
salo at St. Mary's Mount noxt Tuos-

large number nud variety of articles,
including quilta, ladies' handkerchiefs,
dolls, oup's and saucers, picture frame.*,
an immehso <)unntity of children's
clothing, and a great many othor useful and fancy articles, Theso articles
all came from England, and some of
them nre beautifully worked and exceedingly handsome. Tho pricps fixod
on them nre very moderate, nnd are
takon to represent tho fair market
value of the goods. The sale will ba
opened at St. Mary's Mount nt 2
o'clock Tuesday afternoon, i\nc\ will bo
continued in the evening. Wo uro
glad lobe told that there will be no
rafflingponnitlod, and tlie objectionable features which sometimes unfortunately disfigure such sales will be
wanting. If tho weather happens to
be vory bad, tho sale will bo postponed
until the first favorablo day.
A littlo Sunday sohool girl, whoso

Prune Urowlug nt Chllllwlini-l;.
Mr. K. Greyell, onu of Cliilliwhaok'n
most on tor prising and woalthy farmers, called at this ofllco to-day and
laid a package of prunes, grown by
him, on our tablo. It is only a few
days since the Cou-mbian called tho
attention of fruit growers in this province tojhe fact that prunos could be
successfully grown along tho const,
and now the assortion has boon practically demonstrated. The prunes
grown by Mr. Greyell nro of tho Russian variety; thoy are large, woll
formed, fully ripened and equal in
flavor to any cooking prunes oh tho
market. Tho troo which bore them is
eight years old and Btanda tho climate
fully aB woll as tho plum troo. A
frost, which occurred in tho earlier
part of tlio season, damaged the plums
on neighboring trees, but did not in-
juro tho prunos iu tho least. Mr,
Greyell is making arrangemouts to
plant live acroa of prune troos next
spring. Ho is also experimenting in
other kinds of fruits, hitherto not
grown in this provinco, and is mooting
with very satisfactory results, A
sweet almond troo, plan tod soveral
years ago, is thriving -splendidly but
has not commenced bearing yet, though
there is littlo doubt but that it will in
time. Muscat raisins havo also boon
successfully grown and cured by Mr.
Greyell, and, though ho has not tho
experience necessary for curing them
properly, thoy will compare favorably with the muscat raisins
to be seen in stores round town.
In speaking of the apple crop
Mr. Greyell said he had grown somo
wondorfully large apples this year. Ho
has scores which will weigh 24 ozs. each
aud ono in particular, the largest he
ever saw, turns the scale at 27i ozs.
Pears weighing 18 ozs. woro not uncommon on his troes, aud plums of tho
larger varieties averaged 5 to tho
pound. This would bo fruit growing
extraordinary in any othor country
but British Columbia whero any fruit
grower can givo results equally ns
good aa tho abovo.
