THE NEVADA MINE IIOBROB.
Virhinia, July 11.— Early this
morning the bodies of the six missing miners wero found in the old
drift nil lying close together. Frank
Orahner, one of tho miners who first
attempted to cntor the deadly drift,
describes the bodies of the miners as
all being uurecognizablf, as black as
negroes and shrivelled up liko so
much smoked meat. Tho first man
encountered was Hamilton, lying
squarely across the drift; noxtxame
Dougherty, lying with his feet
toward the mouth of the drift and
the thumb and finger pressed on his
nostrils; Tregallis lay alongside
Dougherty; Jeft'ree was sitting up
on the west side of the drift as if
asleep. Ahead of these four men,
towards the winze to which they
wero making, was a big cave of rocks
which stopped them from reaching
their gaol. Kennedy was lying on
a portion of the cave, as if he had
slipped down in his efforts to climb
to the top of it and scratch through,
while on top of the cave and drift
was Eddy with a shovel tightly
clutched in one hand, indicating
that he had made tremendous efforts
to break through' the drift and reach
the winze. When discovered, fractures were found iu numerous places
in the skin of the miners where it is
supposed to have burst to let gas out
of the bodies, which were undoubtedly swollen to an enofmOus sizo
soon after death. There were no
indications that the victims had
died iu great agony, Physicians are
of opinion that death was painless.
It is thought that the victims died
tho same night of tho fire. Tho fact
that they were scattered indicates
they wero still endeavoring to escape
from the deadly gas when death
overtook thoni. Careful search was
made to discover if they left any
record, but so for none has been
found. When the bodies were
brought to the surface the box
marked Charles Dougherty was first
opened. The remains are in a fearful state of decomposition; the flesh
being actually cooked from lying so
long in the scorching temperature of
the drift. Miners of this city and
Goldhill aro arranging to bury tho
victims next Tuesday. The funeral
procession will be composed of six
hearses followed by nearly the entire
numerical strength of the miners'
union.
TWENTY-SEVEN   EXCURSIONISTS   LOST.
New York, July 11.—The sloop
yacht "Mystery" left RufHo Bar last
evening loaded almost to the gunwales with women and children.
When oil' Barren Island, en route
for Canarsie, the yacht capsized and
only 13 of the 10 souls composing
her passengers and crew are known
to have been rescued. Tho party
was made up chiefly of German
families, residents in Brooklyn and
Long Island Oity. When the passengers of tho "Mystery" and "Christiana" gathered on the pier to embark for Oanarsie, so many men of
tho party showed tho effect of the
beer they had drunk tbat the skipper thought best to put the women
and children aboard the "Mystery,"
which rates as a much safer boat
than her consort. The women protested but tho protest wus unheeded.
Captain Hendrickson, of the "Mys-
tBry," said he was going to get to
Canarsie first at any risk. Reef
knots wero unfastened and tho boom
dropped just as a squall of considerable violence struck the sail. In a
second sho was on her beam's end,
and all the people were struggling
in tho choppy sea. Fully half the
drowned peoplo wero children. A
negro in a row boat put out from
the shore and succeeded in saving
seven lives, nnd a tug boat which
was in tho vicinity saved six. About
1 o'clock this afternoon the sloop
was towed into Canarsie, and sov-
oral dead bodies wero found in hor
cabin.
ANOTHER THEATRE HORROR.
Hurley, July 11.—Fourteen bodies have been recovered from the
ruins of the Alcagar theatre. Identification is utterly impossible, as
nothing but the trunks of tho bodies
and an occasional arm and leg are
found. Threo persons were fatally
injured by jumping from windows,
making the total deaths 17. The
total loss is about $150,000; insurance about 850,000, Five blocks,
embracing 70 buildings, wero laid
in ashes.
THE BULGARIAN MUDDLE.
Tihnova, July 11.—The regents
have tendered their resignations to
tho sobranjo on the ground that
their task was completed by the
election of Princo Ferdinand of
Saxe-Coburg to the Bulgarian throne.
Tho sobranje refused to accept the
resignations, desiring to await the
return of delegates who started today to visit Prince Ferdinand at
Tiruova. All of the ministers have
officially resigned. Tho new cabinet
has not yet been formed.
THE CHOLERA SCOURGE;
London, July'Tl.—TheW have
been forty cases of cholera and 18
deaths from the disease among the
troops at Catania.
nAKTINGTON  TO SALISBURY.
London, July 11.—Lord Hartington
replying to Gladstone's recent letter
says: "I do not think it necessary to
prolong an uniniportantcorrespondence
nor was it necessary to specially exclude
from my statement that the Liberal
dissension on such a subject was of
only recent date, which was not intended as an unfriendly statement. I
shall not, therefore, publish a letter
marked "private," but I repeat that it
cannot properly bo described as a letter of remonstrance and I havo no objection to your publishing it if you
think fit."
AMERICAN  BANQUET IN LONDON.
London*, July 12.—The Duko of
Portland yesterday reviewed the ancient and honorable artillory of Boston
and afterwards presided at a banquet
given thorn. U. S. Minister Phelps
and Col. Walker, of Boston, had seate
of honor. The lord mayor of London,
Lord Napier, of Boston, Delegate
Tilton, of New York's old guard, and
others were present.
LONDON NEWS.
London, July 11.—A dispatch from
Vienna to the Chronicle says Prince
Ferdinand of Saxe-Coburg started for
St. Petersburg on Saturday to solicit
tho Czar's consent to his accession to
tho Bulgarian throne. The government has allowed the Sultan five days
longer in which to consider his ratification of tho Egyptian convention.
Frank Hugh O'Donnell has begun a
libel suit against tho Timet for dam-
uges because of the charges made
against him by that journal in its articles on "Parnellism andCrimo." It
is reported that Mgr. Scilla has informed tho Pope that the time had not arrived to establish a nunciature or
apostolic delegation in London, although some official link between England and the Vatican seemed not only
expedient but imperative.
THE DEAD.
Philadelphia, Pa., July 12.—At
the Actors' Homo on Sunday G. Gaines
Spear, the veteran comedian, 78 years
old, who mado his first appearance on
tho stage in old Tremont theatre, 1829,
breathed his last having been confined
to bed for nearly four years. The
most notable event in Spear's life was
in being witness to the tragedy nn the
stage of Ford's theatre, when President Lincoln fell a victim to John
Wilkes Booth's aim.
THE COVENTRY ELECTION.
London, July 11.—The Standard
says tho loss of the Coventry election
should teach tho Unionists that the
battle is not over and incessant exertions aro still necessary to secure the
Eosition they have won. "We shall
o surprised, however," continues tho
Standard, "if Gladstone's speech on
Saturday to his American admirers
does not revive home feeling iu all its
intensity. The Tunes says the result
of the elevating of Henry Wm. Eaton
to the peerago is a loss to Coventry
and to the government. Eaton's elevation is an inexplicable and gratuitous
blunder. Tho warning must not bo
neglected.
REVELATIONS   IN THE CASS CASE.
London, July 11.-The enquiry in
the Cass case was resumed to-day and
adjourned. Several police inspectors
testified that hundreds of women had
boon convicted in London of boing improper characters on tho evidence of a
a single constable.
THE HAWAIIAN DIFKICI'LTV.
Washington, July 11,—Tho department of statu is still in official ignorance of tho revolution iu Hawaii, and
First Aassistant Porter said to-day
that tho department did not expect to
hear anything for four or five days, not
until the dispatches whicli Minister
Merrill sent on the Mariposa shall
have been sent overland from San
Francisco and recoived in Washington.
One of the prominent officers of the
department was asked how much of a
force was on the Pacific at prosent.
"Wo havon't any," was the reply, "at
least none to speak of. Tho Pacific
squadron, with tho exception of the
Alert, aro wooden sloops and carry
from six to eight smooth bore guns,
worth as muoh as a boy's pop gun
when compared with modern artillery.
The Alort is an old vessel of 1000 tons
and carries four guns. If the fleet
wero to be mobilized it would tako
about ten years, I guess, if it ever
could be dono. Tho Adams has beon
at Honolulu since June 14. Tho Van-
dolia is probably half way between
Callao and Hawaii. The Juniata is on
Central American waters, bound to
China via Sandwich Island.. Tho
Mohican is on the west coast of South
America, probably near Peru. The
Iroquois is at San Franoisco, being repaired, and tho Alert must bo some-
whore near tho Mohican. Tho complement of otlieom and men carried by
the Pacific fleet is about 1300in all, in
cluding the crew. The force England
has in the Pacific waters could be rap*
idly concentrated. All vessels are in
good condition and built after the
latest models and carry rifled cannon
of large calibre and not old smooth
bores like we have. But I don't think
we need fear any danger from England,
as I have always understood that a
perfect understanding existed between
tho United States and Englaud in regard to Hawaii. Germany might
try to have prepondering influence
there. She is now engaged in a colonial policy and is trying to extend
her policy elsewhere. We can never
afford to seo any other country obtain
overshadowing influence in Hawaiian
affairs and if necessary to prevent it
we should go to war."

Tbe Ayer Case.
The examination of witnesses in
the Ayer case has been completed,
and the argument of the legal points
will not take place for some months.
Thia case is one of the most remarkable that has been before tho
publio for a long time. Tho government confiscated a large amount
of patent medicines sent into Canada by J. 0. Ayer ifc Oo. on the plea
that it had been undervalued and
improperly entered. The sum in
volved is very large, and the case
for the government depends chiefly
on tho evidence of a number of informers, ex-employees of the Ayors.
It is surmised that these informers
have been influenced by tho prospect of plunder if the case went
against the Aycrs, as they would
be entitled to share in the proceeds
of the seizure. Their evidence was
of suoh a character as to destroy all
confidence in their integrity, and it
is scarcely possible a conviction
could be obtained upon such testimony. The revelations made during this trial have drawn public at
tention to the vory unsatisfactory
character of the customs regulations,
and tho ease with which a conspiracy could bo formed between cus
toms officers and unprincipled persons to defraud business men. It
is probable that these regulations
will be modified ns a result of the
Ayer case.
Disallowance Agitation.
Our friend of the Vancouver
Herald admits his error in stating
that there had been no agitation in
this district on the question of disallowance, but says the agitation
wu confined to the Columbian- and
(he Westminster board of trade. If
our cotemporary's statement were
strictly acourate it would nevertheless be a confession justifying the
Columbian's claim. Tho Westminster board of trade is undoubtedly
the most influential and representative association of commercial and
business men on the mainland, and
the Columbian is beyond all question the most widely read and most
influential newspaper on the mainland. Our cotemporary is very
badly informed if he is of opinion
that the question of disallowance
haa not occupied the attention of
the people of this district, or that
public sentiment is not almost unanimously opposed to the principle.
Apparently he bas not yet even
learned that the district representative at Ottawa voted squarely against
disallowance, although in doing so
he voted contrary to the policy of
the government of which he is a
supporter. In this vote at least
Mr. Ohisholm represented the pre
vailing opinion of his constituents.
It is unfortunate that the Herald,
like its neighbor of the News, has
never been able to obtain a just
and comprehensive view of public
questions or publio sentiment beyond the limits of the city it represents.
The Railway Lands.
It was expected that Mr. Burgess,
deputy minister of the interior,
would extend his trip from Victoria
to San Francisco, and return to
this city early this week. That
programme was not carried out,
however, and Mr. Burgess left for
Ottawa on Saturday, going by way
of Burrard Inlet. Some persons
who expected to interview the deputy minister at this city, therefore,
were disappointed. At Viotoria he
was interviewed by a representative
of the Times to whom he stated
that his visit had been made for the
purpose of gaining information respecting the requirements of this
province. There were several cases
of a complicated kind which had to
be adjusted. In the case of the
Fort Moody squatters it had been
decided that all bona fide settlers
there would receive a patent so
soon as they have complied with the
land regulations. The same rule is
to be applied, wherever it can be
applied without too seriously stretching the regulations, to all lands
lying within the railway belt. Of
course patents cannot be issued until the surveys have been completed,
and the process of surveying is a
slow one, and the work will not be
finished this year. With respect to
the dyked lands of Sumas, Mr.
Burgess claim* that these lands,
having reverted baok to the province, came under the administration
of the federal government the same
M any other lands within the railway belt. The provincial authori-
ties, however, contest this claim.
Th* department will not grant the
concessions asked with respect to
timber. All timber sold for any
purpose must be subject to stump-
age and timber dues, The regulations are such that if a fanner cuts
down the timber, in the regular proem of clearing, and burns it, the
department asks no dues; but if,
instead of burning it he sells it for
firewood, or for ties, or for any pur
po*e, the dues must be paid. These
regulations lead to an absurdity in
many cases, and numerous efforts
have been mado to amend them ao
that the settler could do what he
liked with the timber instead of
being forced to destroy it. It is
expected that Hon. Mr. White, minister of the interior, will visit this
province before the end of the
month, and possibly his practical
good sense will load to a modification of these regulations.
Messrs. Parker k Laird, of lltllsilule,
writes: Our Mr. Laird having occasion
to visit Scotland, and knowing the excellent qualities of Dr. Thomas' Eclectric
Oil, concluded to tako some with him,
and the result has been very astonish,
ing. Wo may Bay that in several instances it has effected cures when ailments had been pronounced incurable by
eminent practitioners.

"Mlanae1**. MARY'S DOUBLE
It irna a pleasant June morning In
Darien-Badon.
Reluming to her hotol at precisely
eight o'clock, after her morning " con-
etitutlonrii;" Miss Mariana Boblnson
called nt room thlrty-two to see Miss
Klnsa tor a moment, and then sho would
go out and rout the lazy girls—Miss
Kliodcs and Miss Thurston—and make
thorn go tn l.renkfaet with hor.
Those throe girl* were spending a yoar
In Ueruinny, studying and traveling
under the cure of their friend and former
teacher. Miss Nlass. They had been
abroad since October. For amonth thoy
had been staying at the Hotel Victoria iu Baden-Baden, and for a week
Miss Nlass had been quite Ul, and confined to her room.
As Mariana entered MIsbmass's room,
tho latter looked at hor with evident
anxiety; and said:
" I was wishing vory muoh to see yon.
Here l» a cablo dispatch, which 1 hare
just reecived from your father."
It was directed to " Miss Mary Boblnson, Hotel Victoria, Baden-Baden," aud
was as ioIIows :
"Come home Immediately. Havo
secured state-room for you on the Abyssinia, leaving Liverpool the 10th.
"J. Robinson."
"What oan It mean?" said Mariana.
"I cannot understand lt. If any of
them aro sick, or anything, it would
have been so much better to have told
mo plainly than to put me in susponso."
Ono thing was clear; hor passage was
engaged on the Abyssinia for the 10th,
and on the Abyssinia she must go. This
was tho 6th, and no time was lo bo lost.
" You will have to tako the ten o'clock
train to Carisruhe. Mary," said Miss
Nla6S, "and thero you oan connect
through to Oologno to-night You have
nn hour nnd three-quarters to get ready."
After sending Mariana to her breakfast,
Miss Nia s called the landlord.
" You nr.r sure," asked Miss Nlass, a
sudden thought striking her," that there
is no other Miss Boblnson In tho hotoH"
" Yos, madam, there is no othor person by that name. The letters to Miss
Boblnson are sometimes addressed to
Miss Mary and at othor times to Miss
Mariana Boblnson. This I have observed.   I suppose lt Is all one name."
"Yes,"replied the lady, and remembered aa sho spoke that Mr. Robinson
nhvavs called his daughter Mary.
With a heavy heart Mariana traveled
nil the long day. Sho reached Cologno
urter dark. The nest day's journey
brought hor to Antwerp. Her oab stopped at a stono curbing which extended
tho length of tho street; beyond It was
a confusion of shipping, horses, drays,
freight, and the like; on the othor side
blank warehouses.
Mariana looked out anxiously. She
alighted and gave the driver two
or throo coins. At this ho seemod
to become very angry, put tho monoy
back tn hor hand, and started to got
back on tho box, as lt he intended
driving off with her trunk.
. " Madouiolsolle, can I he of any assistant to you?" said a voice In Frenoh.
Mariana turned and saw a gentloman
standing ut her side.
Sho explained to tho stranger that sho
wanted to find the steamer that was to
start for Harwich in half an hour, and
that she could not understand a word
the driver said, and that he would not
take tho money sho offered him.
The gentleman called the driver, who
name up, looking sheepish and mortified.
He talked with him a moment, and then,
turning to Mariana, said:
"Tho follow says It was Bhenrsh
money. Ho can get lt exchanged. I am
going to tlio same steamer, and will show
you the way."
Mariana followed him, and the driver
brought up the rear with her trunk.
Under the caroof hernew friend, Marl-
ana passed through the ordeal of tho
Harwich custom-house quickly, and
mado tho trip to London without anxiety.
After seeing her safe tn a cab, and directing tho driver to take her to tbe
Lnngham Hotel/iho bowed his most
courteous adieu, and Mariana drove
a way with a little feeling of regret that
sho had seen the last ot him.
The morning of the 10th sho went to
Liverpool, and In the afternoon she went
on board the steamer.
Thoy weighed anchor at sunset. Marl-
ana was standing at the vessel's stern.
Turning, her attention was arrosted by a
glimpse of a gentleman pacing the quart-
ur-deck alone.
It was the Frenoh gentleman who had
shown her politeness on her journey.
She started toward the hatchway and
met him. Beeognizlng her, his face
lighted up with unaffected pleasure
From that moment the two were
"good comrades."
On the fifth day out from Liverpool,
Count de Bochefontin—that was the gentleman's name and title—came to her as
she sat on deck, and remarking In English:
"I have something to show you, Moos
Boblnson," he handod her a photograph
of a girl ot her own age.
Mariana looked long and steadily at
the picture, halt fascinated by It, the
count meanwhile standing at her side
scanning her face with pride and eagerness In his own.   Finally he exclaimed:
" Eh lien/ And what Is it that you
will say In regard to that portrait?"
"It Is exquisitely lovely," said Marl-
ana, still looking at the portrait.
" Ifeit-cepasrhe oried, forgetting his
English, and then with a truly French
gosture he added: "Ah, mademoiscllo,
it Is the lady ot my heart."
Mariana hod an open heart for a love
story, and in a low words of cordial Interest drew out that of Do Bochefontln.
Tho young lady who, strange to say,
was, liko herself, named Mary Boblnson,
hod been for a year In Paris. Tho Count
had n few months ago offered his hand
to hor In marriage.
Sir' was willing to give it, but on writing to her parents tn America they made
strong objections—apparently for the
solo reason that he was a foreigner.
Several letters had passed bock and
forth with no satisfactory result, and he
bail finally determined to go to America
aud plead his own cause.
He had been obliged to go to his chateau in Normandy for several weoks before embarking, and Miss Boblnson had
joined friends with whom she was to
Ira vol.
It seemed to be a great affliction to
him tbat ho could not know hor oxaot
whereabouts. The plans ot the peoplo
with whom sho was to travel wero uot
fully made, and all his letters had to be
addressed to her Paris bankers and forwarded by them.
Mariana asked If the young lady's
father knew that he waa coming to
America.
"Ah, no, mademoiselle, lt Is a secret
most profound. I am Informed that he
Is a gentleman of slightly eccentric temper, and lt would not be best to excite
hlra beforehand. Moro than that, he
might see at to be away from home. He
resides In New York," •
Seeing tha man aaahe did every day
and all day long, Mariana hnd a fine opportunity of studying his character. He
He'ciiicd to hor a high-bred, cultivated
gunt'enmu, of singular simplicity snd
notii'sly of cliarnoier, and that he waa
thoroughly In love was beyond question.
Having formed this opinion of tho
mnn, an I lining strongly Interested In his
mission to America, Mariana determined
to do all In hor power to favor It, '
When the Abyssinia anchored In Ne#
York harbor, Count de Rnchofoniln pro*
posed that she should wait on the steamer whllo tlio tugboat made its first, trip
to the dock, and he would go and Hnd
her fntlior. and bring him hack with him
to'tho steamer. In that way she would
havo a Chan en for a little quiet talk alono
on first seeing hint, [nstoad of meeting
him in all the noise and confusion of the
dock and Custom House.
Count do Itooliefontln. ou landing from
the tug, stationed himself near the Una
of waiting frionds. watching them narrowly for Mr. Boblnson.
Ills ojes soon fell upon a stout olderly
gentleman In light gray clothes. He
woro e. heavy gray mustache, nnd had an
important, l,:tsitie.> like air.
He wus evidently on the Mart, to seo a
friend among the passengers, and beginning to knit ills heavy eyebrows und
grow very red when, the tug having
landed all her passengers, tho person hu
expected did not appear.
'the second oillcerot tho AhysBlnla had
lauded, ami Do Bocltefontiu heard the
old gentleman soy to Min:
. " Young lady by tho namo of Boblnson
on Iho l>oat, ejr?"
This was enough. Do liocliofontin
advanced; und, as .Mariana had told him
that hor father did not understand
French, said, in tho best Engl sh ho
could command, bowing very low as he
spoke:
"Allowme,monsieur. Mademoiselle,
your daughter, remains upon y.o ship;"
"licit?" The old gentleman glared
rather ilercoly at Do BochoMiiilln, who
bowed courteously and rouutrked:
"Miss Boblnson waits for you on tho
ship, monsieur. Sho is slifjilly discompose! l'.t the prospect of seeing you."
"till, sho is," interrupted the other.
"Well, I should thing sho ought to be;"
nml he laughed with a deep aud not very
mirthful "haw, haw, haw."
The tug waa now ready to return to
the steamer, and tho two gentlemen
stepped aboard.
" Who aro you, anyhow, sir?" asked
Mr. Boblnson, facing about abruptly
upon Ids companion.
Do Bochefontln' handed him his card.
'Iho (thl gentleman grew very red and
exclaimed:
•"Theodoro do Bochofonttnl What,
you urn the man who wonts to marry my
duughtor?"
" Ah no, monslour, pardon mo, I lief
not that honor. Mademoiselle, vour
daughter, Is a young lady vory amiable.
Iiidmlro, oh, vory woll; but my heart,
monsieur, he belongs to another," und
De Boeheroiitln bowed again.
"Itdoes? Then what In the namo
of wonder nro you traveling around with
my daughter tor, sir? I demand on explanation I"
" I make tho journoy with mademoiselle simply as a compagnan ilc voyage."
" Now, seo horc, young man, your name
Is Theodore de ltoohefoulln, and you
belong to tho Bourbon noblesse, what-
ovcr that Is, andMwn a chateau In Normandy, don't you? and you're tho soul
of honor and chivalry, aren't yon? Hold
on I I believe I've got tlio Inventory of
your attractions right hero;" mid he
began taking a handful of letters out ot
his pocket.
"Mais, monsieur!—that affair becomes
now hopeless; lot us, de bonne grace, I
pray you, ndvlso mademoiselle your
daughter with it."
They now stepped on board the Abyssinia. Mariana was waiting for them on
deck, pale aud anxious.
" Void, monsieiirl—mademoiselle, your
daughter, will,make rightall that affair."
" My daughter I" exclaimed tho old
gontloman, staring at Mariana. " Never
saw tiro young lady In my life I"
"This is not my father,"said Mariana.
" My namo is Boblnson," declared the
old gentleman. "James Boblnson, ot
the firm of Boblnson and Sharpo, wool-
brokers, New York City."
" And mine is Mariana Boblnson, ot
Mamaronock," exclaimed the girl, "My
father's name Is Joseph Boblnson; he Is
n lawyer."
" Know him woll—know him well,"
said Mr. Boblnson cheerfully, "but I
didn't seo him on the dock."
" I received a telegram from him two
weeks ago telling mo to come home by
this steamer. I cannot understand his
not meeting me."
" You received that telegram I How
in tho world did that happen? I sent lt
to DrexolB, In Paris, to bo forwarded to
Mary. Sho was to keep them Informed
of her movements."
"Thoy must have expected her to bo
at tho Hotel Victoria, in Baden, the Oth
ot June," said Mailana halt sorrowfully;
" for they sont tho dispatch thero, and
as I was the only Mary Boblnson at the
hotel, and as the dispatch was dated New
York—father would of course go to New
York to telograph to me—I novor dreamed
of Its being for any ono but mo. So I
have taken this Journoy all for nothing I"
" Well, well," said Mr. Boblnson, " I'll
take you out to Mamaroneck this afternoon. I ordered my daughter to come
homo bocuuso'tn her lost letter she got
pretty Independent about some French
adventurer she'd taken It In her hoad to
niurry—fellow's name same as this."
"Ho Is tho gentleman to whom your
daughter Is engaged, and no has crossed
tho ocean simply to bog you to reconsider your decision."
' " Thou lie can cross back again doublo
quick," said tho old gentleman.
Mariana saw thnt sho now hold tho
matter, in hor own hands to a great
extent.
At a word from her Do Bochefontln
walked away, leaving her alono with Mr.
Boblnson. Sho proceeded to plead tho
cause of tho two lovers.
"Oh, you're liko all women," ho said;
"you can't resist the beard nnd title."
But ns sho wont on ho listened to hor
gravely, and by tho tlmo the tug was
ready to return he assure/I her that he
would invito De Bochefontln to his house
nnd tako tho matter Into serious consideration. Ho Insisted that Mariana
should go home with him also to luncheon. By doing this the girl had a
chauoo for a little talk with Mrs. Boblnson, when tho Frenchman's interests
wore not nogleotod.
On her arrival home Mariana found
her mother ill. The preseneo of the
oldest daughter was of all things desired.
Within a week Mary Robinson, who
had arrived tn Baden-Baden the 7th ot
Juno, but had not gone to Hotel Viotoria becauso it was full, and had called
nt tlio post-offico for her mall, received
the following cable dispatch:
" Come homo at once. Your count
not so bad after all. You owe everything to your double, who has promised
to bo first bridesmaid. For further
particulars apply to Miss Nlass, Hotel
Viotoria. J.Bobinwn." .

GREAT IMPROVEMENTS FOR 1887.
THE AIM OF " GRIP" is to set forth, in

more definitely and moro pleasingly than
who'e columns of editorial. In this pungent, easily appreciable, aud artistic style
of pvcsentl.iga suhjeet.tho wholo situation is revealed al a glarice. Tlie success
of OVi'/ishowH how well this fact Is appreciated—Its Cartoons on the passing political ovents of the country being even
more eagerly sought after than the chaste
and humorous letter-press of the paper,—
though the latter is equal to thai of any
similar publication on iliceoutlnent.
The publishers of Grip are making ex
toustve Improvements for I88H. The old
cover Is to be discarded, and the journal
Wilt hereafter comprise h! pages, und be
printed on heavy toned and ealendered

executed as to coinpmv favorably with
the best papers ou the continent. The
advts. will ho compressed and more systematically arranged; while similar Improvements will be mode as to the letterpress. A new and handsome design will
adom the title page; whllo th*. Cartoons
will certainly not sullbr from extensive
Improvements In the artistic department,

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
ON THE 10TH OF JANUARY, 1887,
tlio Columbian* Newspaper and
Printing Concern was purchased by a
joint stock company composed ot citizens
of Now Westminster, to bo known as tbe
"British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited," Tho concern bas been for
nearly a year owned and controlled by
the British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of New Westminster,
Victoria and Vancouver. The object of
tho now company is to continue tbo publication of the British Columbian newspaper anil carry on a ecneral printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
tlioso whose individual interest it will bo
to promote the development, especially
of tlio Mainland, There will bo no
Blackening of tho energy hitherto displayed in the management of tbo establishment, and its patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for their monoy.
The Colombian will ceutlnuo to be entirely independent iu both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote itself
to tho advancement of such schemes as
may bo oonsldored in the public interest.
The concern is now entirely separate from
any other business, the book and
stationery establishment in this city
having been taken over by Mr. T. B.
Pearson, who will continue to carry it on
in his own name and for his own benefit.
It is desirable that a daily newspapor
should be maintained in this city, and
the new company asks for public patron*
ago ou the ground that It is engaged in
an enterprise calculated to promote the
public ^elfaro. It asks that tho Columbian be judged on its own merits and
supported only so long as its policy is
euconslstt with its professions. In consequence of this business change alt accounts due tho concern must bo settled
without delay so that the books of tho
former company may be adjusted and
closed. Address all communications and
remittances to

This. Association merits the
confidence the Public is reposing in it from the following
FACTS:—
The Security oflcrcri to policy holders Is
unsurpassed by any Company doing business In Canada,
It has no schemes of Insurance, but tbe
well-established .lines, hence the policy
holders cannot be misled us to their contracts.
Its statements to the public can be readily understood, its cash statement show*
ing every Item of tnforno and how expended.
Its posit Ion Isascortntned annually from
a detailed valuation in which every item
of liability Is included.
Its progress has been unexampled iu
the history of Insurance in Canada,
Its policies aro indisputable after three
years, nnd non-forfcltable after two years'
existence.
Its profits are distributed upon nn eqult-
nble basis. The profits to ono class of
policy holders are not lessened to give
larger profits to nny other clnss. whicli
method affords superior advantages over
the uniform bonus plan of distribution.

Boundary Bat, July 0—Tho crops
are very much in need of rain. Tho
late grain on rough undrained land is
drying out. Tbo hay will not be so,
heavy as it has been iu former years,
but there is a vory good crop. Land
is changing hands and now sottlers are
coming in all tho timo. Messrs. T. N.
dfrE.C. Calhoun havo dissolved partnership; E, C. has bought out T. S.'a interest and paid oft" Mr. Booth. It is
less than three years since T. N. secured 850 acres, valued at $18,300.
Tlio land was all wild thon and not
ditched; nluoh of it was nothing more
than a duck pond. Now over 600
acres have been ploughed and cropped.
Land in this vicinity has risen in value
as it has proven to bo invariably productive. There is still room to raise
thousands of tons of produce in this
part of tho country, as there is a good
deal of land not cultivated as yet.

Mrs, A. Nelson, Brantford, writes:—
"I was a sufferer from chronic dyspepsia
for eleven years. Always after eating,
an intense burning sensation in the stomach, at times very distressing, caused a
drooping and languid feeling, which
would last for several hours after eating.
I was recommended by Mr. Popplewefl,
chemist, of our city, to try Northrop k
Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure, and I am thankful to say
that I have not been bettor for years;
that burning sensation and languid feeling has all gone, and food does not lie
heavy on my stomach. Others of my
family havo used it with best results.
