8nriirl.es aurt Dilemmas.
(Continued from Saturday}.
Another ililiriiiinu, whose horns
the timid and inexperienced teacher continually dreads, is the superintendent's examination. "Happy
is the man that is equal to every
emergency," exclaimed Ool. McGregor in one of his serious moods,
and I would add the words of storm-
tossed iEneas and say "Thrice and
four times happy" is the man who is
equal to this emergency and fears
uot "marks."
To pass or uot to pass—that is the yues-
tion:
Whether'tis nobler in the mind to suf-
• fer
The sneers ami anger of itjort-siglited
parents.
Or cram their children's minds with facts
nud figures,
And so end all fault-finding ? To teach-
to stuff
No morel and by good work  to say we
soothe
The conscience, and the  thousand anxious thoughts
A teacher's heir to,—'tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wished.     To teach—to
fail I
To fail to pass your pupils: there's the
rub;
For to what class a teacher may be
doomed,
When all havo failed to reaoh three score
per cent.
Must give us pause: there's the respect
That makes biul teaching of so long a
life;
For who wonld condescend to shams and
tricks,
To load the tender mind wltb dates ud
rules,
To drill on old examination papers,
And use the various questionable means,
Tho unworthy take to make high marks,
When he himself could higher ends attain
By Nature's methods!    Who, of medals
bare,        ,,0 .j .
Would grunt—and sweat—under a load
of work,
But that the dread of tbat long roll of
names,—
The all-important pasi-list whose eon-
tents
No  teachers can   ignore—puzzles the
will,
And makes us rather work to make a
show,
Than run the risk of being with shame
dismissed T
Examination make us cowards all;
And thus the face of many a pedagogue
Is sicklied o'er with a pale, anxious look;
And often teachers  of great  seal  and
spirit,
With this regard, from teaching turn
away
And lose the name of domimt.
Do not think I plaoe little value
ou written examinations; I believe
them to be of great importance, and
without them,, the, hiajhest: results
cannot be obtained! As a general
rule, pupils who are looking forward
to such ordeals work better than
those who have no object in view.
For this reason, at the universities,
nearly always, the undergraduates
are superior to the general students.
The effort they make to be prepared
for the final examination taxes all
their powers of body and mind, and
if it is made in a proper way,' it
leaves them stronger after they are
through. The evils arise, not from
the amount a person may study in
preparing for an examination, but
in the way he studies. A good teacher generally follows good methods,
because he knows bad ones are only
temporary shifts, whose results will
certainly not be of permanent advantage. Hero is a test; Are your
pupils always advancing and becoming capable of more work 1 Teaching must be judged by the capacity
thnt is developed.
In connection with the other p.irt
of my subject, I would mention, as
n matter of surprise, the way in
which pupils turn out, Sometimes
those who at the beginning of their
career promised so much, either
through physical weakness or the
sudden development of some evil
tendency, become failures, while the
dunce of the school, who appeared
to be indifferent to everything, may,
by the sudden awakening of some
dormant energy, surpass all his fellow-pupils. The old teacher is sometimes surprised to meet, as a legislator or governor of a province, the
dull boy .he onco thought was only
fit to dig ditches or split rails. His
clever pupil may greatly disappoint
him by taking the downhill road, so
that he may see the light of his
hopes fade away before the blighting
influence of some debasing habit or
passion.
Another cause of surprise to the
young nnd enthusiastic teacher is
the ingratitude of parents nnd pupils. Those with whom he has taken the greatest pains, for whose welfare he has worked with all the zeal
anil self-denial of an apostle, may
not exhibit the least degree of thankfulness. By many, a teaoher seems
to bo regarded as a necessary evil,
and when he perforins any great
work or makes a special effort in be
half of his pupils, it is thought to
be done from selfish motives, either
to got for himself a name, or to win
tlm applause of friends. There is
no calling in which a person is more
liable to be misunderstood and misrepresented than in teaching, and,
therefore, he who engages in it should
perform his duties from other motives
than the expectation of gratitude. A
touch of stoicism is not a bad trait in
the pedagogue, for though it seems
strange, often when he .is doing the
boat work, he may be lowest in public
estimation.
Bear with me a little longer, while in
conclusion, I offers few words of advice that may be helpful against surprises and dilemmas. A teacher should
maintain strong self-respect and hold
a high regard for his office and work.
There is no higher calling. The noblest
of the human race have been teachers,
and it is mainly through their influence
that the world has risen from a state
of barbarism. Your position ma; be
a humble one, but you can claim sympathy as a co-worker with the greatest
and best of all sgea. . You should,
therefore, rise above gratitude. As a
true missionary, you should work for
work's sake, and if out of the material you receive, you make the best that
can be made, you should be satisfied.
Be cautious. Do nothing that you
will have to acknowledge as wrong or
apologize for, either to parents or any
other persons; but especially do nothing
that your conscience will condemn, for
after all, it is the arbiter, before whom
you must either stand or fall. Do not
be too careful about what people think
of you. The popular teacher is often
such because he is a poor one. Tact,
straight-forwardness, sincerity and
certain respect for the opinion of others
will often make crooked paths straight
and rough places smooth, and gain for
you the outward respect of those who
think they know moro about your business than you do yourself.
There may, however, cornea time
when all expedients will fail, and you
are shut up to the course of doing
right or wrong; when you have to break
faith with your dearest friends on account of their sons and daughters;
when you have to incur the bitterest
hate of doting mothers and indulgent
fathers; yea, wben the folly, ignorance,
spite and blind fury of a whole community will bejarrayed against you; when you
have enemies open and secret, foes on
the right hand and on the left,—when
such clouds darken the horizon of your
life, then let there be no wavering;
forget all men, even youraelf, and heeding only the voico of Duty, be obedient
to her behests, even though the social
heavens should fall with ruin upon your
devoted head.
After the storm hu passed, you will
breathe a purer atmosphere, and freer
and stronger will yon Tbe to renew the
fight against ignorance and vice. New
faces will smile upon you, perhaps, in a
arrange land. The past will not be
without its pleasant memories; its associations will become hallowed. The
white star of conscious rectitude will
arise in the serene heaven of the soul;
and in the opening dawn, the whispers
heard in the night will become the
voice of angels cheering you on, till
the full morning breaks and the shadows See.

Late Canadian News.
St. John, Nfld., Aprils,—The time
for sending a deputation to Ottawa is
not yet fixed. A party meeting wu
held about it to-day. Anti-confederates are active, and the conflict in tht
papers is lively. The opposition to confederation will be strong.
Winnipeo, April 6.—Ex-Mayor McArthur, one of the returned Ottawa
deputation from Prince Albert, expects
a railroad to reach that place in 1889.
John A. Tees & Co., wholesale grocers, have failed. The liabilities are
large and the assets small.
Cornwall, April 6.—Six hundred
operatives of the Canada Cotton Oom.
puny hero are on strike.
Ottawa, April 6.—An estimate published to-night places the out of lumber
in tlio Ottawa valley this year at 700,-
000,000 feet Work is expected to
commence forthwith on the railway
from Vaudreuil to Ottawa.
The leport rccemly proparedjahows
that of a total output of 1,070,836 tons
of Nova Scotia ooal last year over 650,-
858 tons were consumed in the upper
provinces of Canada, Quebec being the
best customer. Eight years ago the
amount of Nova Scotia coal used in
the upper provinces was only 570 tons.
Nova Scotia's gold produce continues
to increase in importance, having been
for 1887 21,211 ounces, an increase of
ten per cent, over I889. The ore
yielded an ounce of gold per ton. During the quarter century since gold
inirting wss commenced in the province, the output has boen close on half
a million ounces.
A Dinner Pill.—Many persons suffer
excruciating agony after partaking of a
hearty dinner. The food partaken of la
like a ball of lead upon tbe stomach,
and instead of being a healthy nutriment, it becomes a poison to tbe system.
Dr. Parmelee's Vegetable Pills are wonderful correctives of such troubles. They
correct acidity, open the secretions and
convert tho food partaken of into healthy
nutriment. They are inst the medicine

Tne Provincial Estimates
In some respects the estimates,
of which a summary appeared in
Saturday's  Columbian,   are   very
satisfactory, and in others thoy arc
disappointing.     The appropriation
of $10,000 for a new court house in
this city will be very much appreciated.   The present building is ut
terly unsuitable for tho purpose   It
is badly ventilated, badly lighted,
badly arranged, and unsuited to tho
dignity which assembles within its
walls.   For the sum appropriated
tho government ought to got a building erected that will be an ornament
to the city and somewhat in keeping with the character of other publio buildings which have been ereot-
ed during the past few years.   It is
satisfactory also to find the sum of
$2,500 set down for increasing the
accommodation of the city sohools.
This  is something, too, that was
urgently  needed.   Sapperton is to
have its sohool, the sum of $700
being appropriated for the school
house, and $640 for the teacher and
incidental expenses.   This will be
very gratifying to the people of that
suburb.    It is much to be regretted,
however, that the government persists in its scheme of requiring the
people of this city to bear a third of
the expense of maintaining its public school.   This policy is not just,
and it will have to bo modified. We
are glad to see $3,500 appropriated
for the Westminster-Vancouver road:
we should have been bettor pleased
if the sum had been twice ns muoh.
The road will never meet public requirements until it hns been well
gravelled from end to end, and  we
fear $3,500 will not be at rill sufficient to do this.  For the Richmond-
Vancouver road and bridgo scheme
there is an appropriation of $11,500,
with which Richmond will doubtless
be content; but we see nothing at
all for the road between Riohmond
and Westminster!   This is a road
very much needed, and it is to be
hoped the supplementary estimates
will contain enough to put it into
such a state as will make it passable
at least.   Next year we expect to
see it'inade a* first-class road.   Tho
mainland municipalities get the customary grant of $1000 each, and for
general road work in the district
there is a lump sum of $12,000 set
apart.   So mention is made of Vedder Creek bridge, but we hope it is
quite understood that this work will
be undertaken during the present
season.   The distriot appropriation
is $3,000 less than it was last year;
but it really cannot be expected that
such large aunts as have been spent
in road-making during the past few
years will be continued.  Fart of the
grants of former years came out of
the proceeds of the sale of the graving dock, and when that fund has
become exhausted, one may naturally look for reductions. There is still
great need of roads in this district,
however, and it is to be hoped the
government may deal with it as generously as the condition of the revenue will permit.   It would bo a
great misfortune if the natural de
velopment of the oountry should be
seriously retarded through lack of
appropriations for the construction
of necessary roads.   The total appropriations for publio works this
year coino up very nearly to those
of  1887,   being only $9,125 less.
There is, another item in the estimates which will certainly attract
attention; namely, $211,636 for education I   This is an increase of 89,-
940,   But even this sum does not
represent the whole cost of tho educational system of British Columbia.
It only shows the cost of maintenance of the sohools.   There has been
appropriated besides   $24,075  for
building and repairing school houses,
making  a total of $135,710.    It
must be evident to all that some different arrangement ought to be made
regarding the support of our educational system.    We may fairly givo
the government credit for a desire to
treat fairly all sections of the province as far as the resources under its
control will permit; but while there
are abundant openings where additional thousands of dollars might be
expended judiciously and in the public interest, the revenue is, unfortunately, quite limited, and scarcely
sufficient for the claims of so largo
a province.   We may be pardoned'
for calling attention just here to tbe
importance of getting public works,
especially roads in this district, under contract without delay.    Every
year we have seen the resources of
the country wasted upon roads whieh
were being constructed during the
rainy Mown, or finished just before
it commenced. .  It cannot be too
strongly impressed upon the mind of
the chief commissioner of lands and
workt that a dollar spent in the
early part of the season on roads in
this distriot is worth two or three
dollan spent later on,   We earnestly hope the mistakes of former years
will not be repeated.   Let all contracts for road work in this district
be arranged to that work may begin
as soon as the weather becomes settled in the early summer, and the
appropriations will then be spent to
the bert advantage.

A CALIFORNIA STORY,] :
: Jack Buraia had beon in California n
f number of years, and at present was
\ worliini in a large mino near the north
! fork of tlio Feather Rivor.
liis cabin was a nent, substantial, ono-
Ftoriiril dwelling, near Coon Canon, snr-
rroanrled by clraparrel shrubs and mad-
' rorrn trees, with thriir glossy i'oH;ig3 lino
i.rlll-el.
A inoiinfarti stream bubbled over the
Bloiim* just boforo llio door.   Altogether,
it was a picturesque place, and Jack had
I'tri'-l to mako it srin^ and homelike.
Ir >it?. curtains slia ie 1   tho windows
i bin, an I wilil hoi'iOj's'ucklo did tbo
| a nmi duty outside.   Tile furniture con*
sinted of somo cliint''-eoveroil chairs and
ji a lounge | a eriuisoii'iiovered tanlo, with
two or tbreo lato prinurs upon it, showed
I tli tJiir-kwasarirri'i.i'.   Aiornor closet
ad some necessaiy cror'kory waro, nnrl
i, his slove, on wlflcli Iris bachelor meals
were cooked, waa sliiriiirr*arul clean. Tbo
! ad. oiiiing room hold  bis bed, neatly
..spread with rod and bluo bl inlcots,
lie was more cotuibrtri: ly situated
r than most miners, and bad quits au idea
I of asking a pretty girl, bo lie day, hi sliaro
I life with bim; but as yet he was heart;
whole, Iris dog Carlo, uud a trusty rifle,
' his only company.
,    r-umo nights tie walked over to the
I adjoining town, others he spent nt home,
mending his traps in which ho caught
1 fox coons, and other small animals.
It waa Thursday evening as tbo stagecoach toiled slowly up the mountain
roads, and the drivor flicked his whip
. over the backs of the six sturdy horses,
1 to hurry them up.   In tho distance, ou
j another grade, could lie soen ouo of tbe
i i uivka teams, with fourteen horses, uud
f the "Prairie Schooner," (as they call tho
1 hig'i freight wagons,) with tbo  tender
[fallowing; and tho immense chock block,,
j dragging, left a Bide track, us if u smooth
roller had passed over it
Un the seat with the driver sat a fair,
pretty igirl-rAllio Hoyce. This wus her
: 1irjt trip to the mountains from her valloy home. ISho was i*oinrj to visit iirrr
(■oihtiis, at Strawberry valley; tli-y were
T(inte well oh', and kept the "Corn ulius
\ House."
Alio was enjoying tho scenery from
J her elovated perch, the tall pi ires, stretcii-
I in,,' ion>tippod branches to tlio rdcy.
Above hor wero .snowcapped peaks, and
\ Iho roudsido waa bordered with busubs
lororod with pink l-uds; hero and there
| u.ie thickets of trie white arrrilirt, and
[through the foliage she saw tli.r ytarry
| dogwood blossoms, and the dusty trails
'■.retelling liko brown ribbons up the
imountain's side, Tlioro was no sound
save the thud and boom of timber nun
im* Iiwn on tho lltirne tide, or a quail's
Whistle.
Sho was asking the drivor what the
'liins found to amuse themselves with,
anrl ho told her of tlio frequent dnneen
arid parties given hy tho Odd i'ellowe, oi
sotno other society.
.-ho waa very glad, as a pretty girl
should be, tbat she put in tliu littlo brown
trunk snugly strapped bolrinrl her pretty
pale bluo lawn, with ils vario .s ritilroiis;
and her shapely foot tapped approvingly
a tin box in whicli slur brut placed her
dainty little sapphire bluo velvet bonnet;
ibe tin box was dust proof, and just the
[thing for a mountain trip.
{The snn was stealing over the pine
trees, and his ardent rays shono redlv
on tho blutl's of brown. Tho driver
could hardly see his leaders for the glare,
when suddenly thore was a loud shout,
n,l a cry of "Hands up 1 Fargo box —
fli.rryl"
The driver drew reins as ho reached
li t top of the hill, so quickly aa almost
{lo throw his wheelers on their haunches.'
le k row by experience that a reiusal
■an', a dose of lea I pills; so ho hastily
.red the box, flung it out, nnd whipped
■up his horses before frigbteiiod   Abie
7 e.id '.ed that not the tin express box, but
.rr treasured bonnet had gone from hor
ewilderod gaze to an  unappreeiative
(road agent.
The driver, when told this, looked to
lee, and sure enough the express box
nas safe; then he chuckled, aud whistled
b his horses to "get along there, you old
i.irdiiies!"
Hut be stopped laughing when ho saw
cilia's rueful lace.
1 Never mind, miss; Wells nnd Fargo
|</ill bo good for yer biinnit, I'll bo bound,
X's tho money's all right."
So comforted Allio brightened up till
llioy reached the Columbus House, whore
[»warm welcome from her cousins greet-
til her.
1 The road agent lifted his mask as the
In box fell at his feet. He soon pried
t open, and loud and long wore his
rimes as he saw no gold, no bills, but a
ittle sapphire velvet bonnet, with a
rlush rose nestling iu its folds. Ue gave
t a kick that sent it in tho brush, but
the box cover shut and kept the dust
| int. As the agent went through tbo
woods he cursed his luck, and the blue
f ronnet especially. . ' '   -   .
Tbat afternoon Jack happened to~be
Murnlng from the town. He had been
aftor a tank of quicksilver for cleaning
up. He strode along whistling cheerily,
with Carlo close to bis heels.
The sun, passing through tho brush,
lit up the tin box; and as it gleamed
.tiriglitly, it attracted Jack's attention,
die sprang toward it, and his eyes grew
round as they saw the daintily fashioned
velvet bonnet
"A lady's bat I" he gasped. "How in
thunder did it get here ? Here's some
of hor hair, too," ha murmured, as be
drew from the lining the golden hair
that had caught there. <
Uo carefully put the hair in his pocket-
book, picked up tho box and went borne,
, where ho carefully stowed it away till
called for.
But all that evening Jack's heart kept
iwatm as he fancied a golden-haired,
blue-eyed girl in tbe chair opposite him;
and Carlo was called on often to look up
and hear, "Well, 'old dog, sho must be a
beauty, oh—a regular sunbeam I"
1 innily, tired out ho sonant repose,
only to dream of a blue bonnet trimmed
with golden hair, and this on Carlo's
head and a tin box for a veil. "Of such
stulf dreaaes are made." .   ..
(When Allio told her cousins of the
Iriglit and her loss, thoy laughed heartily
ovor tho road agent's disappointment,
and consoled her by saying,—
i "Oh, your brown hat Is juat tho thing
(or those dusty roads."
How Allio enjoyed tho clear mountain
air, redolent with pine I What delightful tramps through the woods and up the
brown trails she took, coming back with
both hands filled with sweet-scented
(.'lr.ipparel, or azalias, pink and white,
such as can only be found 'neath the
bluo sky of this golden West I
On ti.e twenty sixth ol April, tho Odd
Fellows were to have a large party in
l.lni) Crass Valley. Tbo cousins told
Aliie that thev were sure to have n good
tiuii*. Tho day arrived, and from far
and near the Odd Follows- came,with
swaclhenrls and wives, thoir daughters,
cousins and aunts till tlio mining town
1 son ned to overlluw with peoplo.
Allle enjoyed the exorcises nnd procos-
slott in Uie afternoon; but the evoning,
to use a California phrase, was "tho cap
sheaf." Tho lighta gleamed through the
large windows of tho ball, shone on the
well waXecrflot)!', h idling Band' played
in good time—quadrilles, waltzes and
polkas. As Allio entered the grand inarch
was forming; the pretty, well dressed
mountain girls, the Odd Fellows in their
(Tinison nnd silver regalia, tlio walls
(irapo I with flags anil bung with wreaths
of evergreen int rsperaed, with great
croa ir and crimson ros s and tail green
ferns, made a prettv sight.
Cur Friend Jack was there, looking
unusually handsomo. Tho floor manager approached biai, S'lyin.r,—
„.laek, lot uie iulro luce you to Miss
Boyco, a pretty vailoy girl."
So Jack, nothing loth, was soon bowing
beforo Allio and asking "tlio pleasure of
her hand for tho next set."
Ho noticed approvingly hor golden
hail' and pretty eyes, and Allio looked
kindly into his black ones.
.luck'B heart beat quick'y as he re-
morn bered his lately found treasure, and
thought how sweet sho would look in
that lionnot.
"All form for tbo noxt set!" shouted
rjhfi manager. Ami Allie's eyes Hashed
a laughing look at .flick as n stout miner
approached a buxom woman and shouted,—
"Hi I old girl, let's you and I tako a
trot 'round this room.'
Beioro tho evening was ovor Jack's
heart had left him entirely, never to return—at least alono. So when tlio "Sicilian Circle" was forming, un i ho heard
a youug lady say, 'Mb, Alia* llririre, did
the road agent return yoar bonnet ?" bo
felt certain of success; for bad he not
found the missing article ? An 1 lie had
read a libel somewhere that a woman's
heart was in her bound,."
j After this party, Jac r oft >n went to tho
Columbus House, eaoh tune fin ling himself more iu love, yot not celt tin if Allio
returned bis passion. l''inali;r the day
crime for her departure, an i Jack rude
up to bid her good-try, hut with n thirling
at his heartstrings unusual to enrol ss,
happy goducky Jack. He fourrd Allio
very sorious; so, when hor cousins had.
loft tliom alone he naked if she vers sorry
to leave tbo inoiintai.ru.
As sho turned to answer him. ho saw
something in tho sweet bluo eyes that
made bim say,—
"Allio, won't you stay always? Be my
wifo! I love you dearly, and will always
try to make you happy."
Allie's answor must have b ren yes, for
ho then and there deciried to return
with hor,and ask her parents for Iii
treasure.
Aud at Christmas thero was a pretty
wedding in tho Valloy Chu eh. Alter
tho breakfast, Jack gave A llie a largo
parcel; on opening it, sho found her long
tost bonnet.
Tout samo day'. Wells and Furgo had
sent her a check tor rifty dollars, hoping
she could replace li r loss

Impoverished, or impure condition of the
blood, Ayor's SarsapariUa prevents and
cures theso eruptions and painful tumors,
by removing their cause; the only effect-
aal way of treating them.
Ayer's SarsapariUa has prevented the
usual course of Boils, which havo pained
and distressed me overy season for several years.— G. Scales, I'hiiuvillo, Mich.
I was badly troubled with Pimples on
the face; also with a discolorutionof the
skin, which showed itself in ugly dark
patches. No external treatment did
more than temporary good. Ayer's Bar-
laparilla effected
A Perfect Cure,
and I have not been troubled since. —
I. W. Boddy, River St., Lowell, Moss.
I was troubled with Boils, and my
health was much Impaired. I began
using Ayer's SarsapariUa, and, in due
time, the eruptions all disappeared, and
my health was completely restored.—
John 11. Hiking, Editor Stanley Observer,
Albemarle, N. C.
I was troubled, for a long time, with a
humor which appeared on my face in
iigly Pimples and Blotches. Ayer's Sar-
laparllla cured mo. I consider it the best
blood purifier in the world.—Charles H,

Newspapers In 1888.
From the edition of Goo. P. Bowell & Co's. "Amorican Newspaper
Directory," published April 2nd (its
20th year), it appears that tho newspapers and periodicals of nil kinds issued in tho United States and Canada,
now number 16,310, showing a gain
of 890 during the last 12 months and
of 7,1?6 in 10 years. Tho publishers
of the directory ussert that the impression that when tho proprietor of u
newspaper undertakes to state what
has been his exact circulation, he docs
not generally tell the truth, is un erroneous one, and they conspicuously
offer a reward of 8100 for every instance in their book fnr this year,
where it can be shown that the detailed
report received from a publisher was
untrue. It wouldn't be safe to extend
this offer to the claims made by somo
papers in this province which pretend
to have the "largest circulation" in
British Columbia!

The Comox Mines.
Mr. Duusmuir's party, which went
on tho Btr. Yosemito to Comox, returned to Victoria thia morning, having accomplished the object of the
trip. The party consisted of 0 P.
Huntington, Jas. Dunsmuir, Mr. Bry-
den, Jos. Hunter, C.E., Chas. Crocker
and tho Hon. Robt. Dunsmuir. The
first four of tho above mentioned gentlemen went hack to the coal mine nnd
inspected iti location. The mine is
situated 0} miles inland from the
shore of tho bay directly opposite Comox. Aftor the party returned it was
decided to immediately proceed with
the construction of the railway from
Wellington to the new mine, as nothing can be dono until railway communication ia a/forded. Mr. Dunsmuir remarked in the hearing of the
whole party "That the Comox mines
would turn out more coal next year
than the Nanaimo and Wellington
mines put together." This remark
shows the hon. gentleman means
business.
A-Ureal Dlnappolntnienl.
When the Yosemito arrived this afternoon almost every unmarried man
in the city, and a good sprinkling of
those who are fettered for life, waa on
the wharf to witness the debarkation of
the Juvenile opera troupe. There was
a regular crush along the gangway and
the few Chinese passengers were somewhat startled by tho searching glances
bestowed upon them by the inquisitive
crowd. The passengers had all got
ashore, but thero was no sign of the
Juvenile young ladies so anxiously
hoped for, so n eouple of our best-look-
ing batchelors wore sent aboard to investigate. They soon returned,'looking rather disappointed and gave out
the company of fair ones had not arrived. The look of disappointment
that swept over the faces of the crowd
was painful to behold, but not more
painful than the silence amidst which
they dispersed. Owing to two nyonts
having booked tho .Tuvenilu Opera
Company to play in Tacoma nnd Westminster on tho samo night, tlio troupe
was compelled to play in the former
city. It is likely tho Juveniles will
play in Herring's opera houso on Friday night.

Communication*.
Iji [u uml Tarn Oliver.
Editor Columhian,—During the
fine days of this last week 1 paid a
short visit to the Goshen of the coast,
Lulu Island. I first visited the seed
store of W. H. Steves and found him
vory busy with hia assistants dispatching packages of seeds to all quarters by
mail and express. His Holstoin cattle und Suffolk horses are iu good condition, and are grand specimens of
of advanced evolution in the forms of
animal beauty and utility. Tbe
scenery at this part of tho island on a
a clear day such as 1 enjoyed ia of
wonderful loveliness. One is seemingly in the centre of an amphitheatre
whose surrounding walls are mountains
grand aud picturesque. But words
are useless, go and see it, and realize a
thing of beauty, and a joy forever.
When tlio bridges arc built j the island
will certainly bd'iJ gVfeat Ju&sbr-b' 'resort. Ploughing is far advanced, und
considerable seed has been planted.
Many buildings will be erected. Mr.
Sosumith has begun a new house.
Mr. Sweet is planting largely of fruit
trees, and is quite confident of success.
Horo I crossed the North Arm and
footed it through the mud to Vancouver. Tho oity has grown immensely. It is daily putting out new
brauches and leaves. The tire limit
law lias evidently driven the growth
away from tlio old centres and out towards Coal Harbor and Hastings. I
visited the new Vancouvor city iron
works, just abovo the Hastings mill,
and was pleasantly recoived by Mr.
Alex. McKelvie, the manager, who
gave me full information as to tho
plans of tho works. On the floor of
the shop there $te many heavy lathes
and planers realdi? WWput -111' placo.
Furnaces, cranes, ifcc, for heavy forging will bo put up, and a first-class
boiler shop will soon be erected. Mr.
McKelvie saya there is ample capital
provided for a first-olass establishment
where all kinds of machinery oan be
made and repaired. Th'eso works will
be of great benefit to steamboat and
millmon, and I have no doubt but tho
British Columbian will take pleasure
in noticing their progress. W.
H. Gladden, West Shefford, P, Q.,
writes: "For a number of years I have
boen afflicted with rheumatism. Two
years ago I was attacked very severely,
I suffered a great deal of pain, from
which I was not free for a day, until
last spring, when I began to use Dr.
Thomas' Eclectrio Oil, and I rejoice to
say it lias cured me, for which I am
thankful."
LAST NIGHT'S DESPATCHES.
Bid  I1EKTHA.
San Francisco, April 7.—-Tho chief
of police this afternoon received a telegram from tho chief of police at Toronto, Canada, asking that in the event
of Bertha Heyman, known as "big
Bertha" the "confidence queen*' who
is to bo tried here for swindling a number of Jewish residents in this oity, is
discharged by nur courts that she bo detained to wait the arrival of an officer
from Toronto. Sho is wanted there
together with a young man named
Willie, who poses as her son, for
stealing debentures 'of tho village of
Yorkville, Ontario.
THE IIOULANOKK KXCIIKMBNT.
London, Apl. 7.—The Boulanger
excitement is again on the wano, the
committee of the imperialists having
decided not to support him. No further sign ia needed to show that his
day is over as a serious element in
French politics. To all appearanco
General Boulangor missed his opportunity a year ago. If he tumid ever
have hoped to be the ruler of Franco,
it would havo beon in the case of a
successful war ugainit Germany in the
autumn of 1880 or the spring of 1887,
when all tho sympathies of Europe
were rather with France than with
Germany, and Germany appeared iu
the not  very agreeable light of the
firovoker of the quarrel. General Bi»u-
anger was at the war office, and' he
made somo preparations for un attack,
but, either he know that the French
nrmy was no match for the Germans,
or his heart was not big enough to fuce
the risk. Tho opportune moment
passed, and, if it should return, the
chances are that it will bo for another
aud a better man. The ominous part
of all tho troublo ovor General Boulanger ia the fact thnt a man of no
special achievements without a policy,
without an ideal, and evon associated
with many nets of doubtful propriety,
■should have been able  to*-attraot*mr
many follower* and inflict so muoh
anxiety upon quiet people. The government in France is at a low ebb, and
the people look for a man in whom
they can put their trust. The repeated changes of the ministry have discredited it ns an institution. The
chamber of deputies, never able to
maintain a majority of any kind, has
lost its hold upon the country, and
even the presidential chair has in the
course of recent events for tho moment,
at least, boen diminished, somewhat of
its dignity. General Boulanger lias
been, in a word, the representative of
the widespread, inarticulate dissatisfaction. The fact is that General Boulanger is not in himself dangerous.
Tho danger lies in the unhealthy state
of the French body politic. Just now
the republic is displaying both legibla-
tive and administrative weakness,
while tho increasing influence of the
musses make more real tbo danger of a
revival of Cmsarisui. It is not Boulanger who is now to bo feared, but it
is the as yet unknown man of superior
genius and force of character who
shall outbid him for the people's support.     	
Mothers!
Castoria is recommended by physicians
for children teething. It is a purely vegetable preparation, its ingredients are
published around each bott'e. It is
pleasant to the taste and absolutely harmless. It relieves constipation, regulates
the bowels, quiets pain, cures diarrhoea
and wind colic, allays fevcrishness, destroys worms, and prevents convulsions,
soothes tho child and gives it refreshing
and natural Bleep, < Castoria is the child-
rens' panacea—the mothers' friend. 35
doses, 35 cents. dwinh'JOntl
Don't Despair ok Kkukf, if troubled
with Chronic Dyspepsia or Constipation.
These ailments, as well as Biliousness,
Kidney infirmities, and feminine troubles,
are eradicated by Northrop k Lyman's
Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure,
an alterative of long tried and clearly
proven efficacy. It is a fine blood dopur-
ent as well as corrective, and contains uo
ingredients which are not of the highest
standard of purity.
