Prof. Sheldon's Opinion.
Ottawa, Oot. 3.—Professor Sheldon, the eminent British agriculturist, returned from British Columbia
this morning, en route (or England,
and had an interview with the
Minister of Agriculture before
leaving town this afternoon. He
has previously made several trips to
the Oanndian North-west for the
purpose of exploring the oountry on
behalf of the English government
and in the interest of English farmers intending to emigrate to Canada, but has never been to the Pacific coast before. In conversation ho
stated that British Columbia will
hardly be suitable for the clans of
people that his reports are to direct
to new-world homes. They are
manly poor men, to whom it is
actually necessary that the land be
at once available for culture, and of
course the prairies of the Northwest, and especially of Manitoba
and portions of Saskatchewan and
Assiniboia, are the districts to which
they will come. However, he is
delighted with the Pacific Province,
and to those more fortunately situated in'life than those above referred
to, he thinks it offers a charming
and prosperous field for settlement.
Like all Englishmen who make the
transcontinental trip, Professor
Sheldon spoke in glowing terms of
tho magnificent stretch of territory
which lies between the two oceans.
He has been instrumental in directing thousands to where they have
found prosperous homes, and will
probably be instrumental in sending
thousands more. His observations
will be communicated to the department in the shape of a report.
The rUgban Question.
Londok, Oct. 3.—Nobody in the
inner official circles would; be surprised if within a month British
regiments were on the march from
Quetta toward Candaliar. All the
news from Afghanistan shows that
the position and health of the
Ameer alike aro declining. , Instead of his quelling the Ghilzai revolt, as reported, it is now wider
spread and stronger than ever. His
generals arc apparently "no longer
striving to cope with it. The
Ameer himself gives very little time
to affairs of the State, being in a
condition of great despondency over
his illness, changing his doctors continually, and it is reported that he
is making life a genuine burden for
each as the failure of his cure becomes apparent Ayoub J~Cban is
said to be on the rood to Candaliar
himself, but all their reports of his
whereabouts are distrusted at the
Indian and foreign offloes as Oriental lies. Nothing is regarded as
sure about him, save that ho is
bound to make trouble. His pretentions to the throne are being aided
by the Ameer's illness and unpopularity and the infanoy of his son, if
not by Russian intrigue. This last
is just now an uncertain quantity.
Ih fact, thero are reasons for bo
lieving that Russia for the present
is very anxious to secure Eugish
friendship as an offset to Prince Bismarck's continental combination,
and is willing to abandon a good
deal in Asia for the sake of seeming it; but there are other reasons
for believing that Russian agents in
Asia are acting in ignorance or defiance of this new imperial policy to
undermine the English at Osbul.
So the whole thing is in a more. Sir
West Ridgewsy, who succeeds General Duller, is absolutely withou'
experience other than Oriental.
Those who know him speak highly
of him, and he has certainly done
good work on the Russo-Afghan
frontier. His article in the Nineteenth Century on ths frontier ought
to encourage faith in Lord Salis
bury's old advice to study large
maps. He believes that Russia will
keep her word respecting the status
quo. Hitherto, ho says, the Russian advance in Asia has been like
the gliding of a knife through butter, but now that it touches Afghanistan it has met tho hard sub-
stance ofthe dish. He scouts the
idea of aii invasion of India. It
would Ire madness, he argues, in the
Russian Generals, who depend for
their supplies upon a single lightly
constructed railroad, toleave their rear
exposed to tbe hostile, excited races
of Central Asia. Sir West Ridge-
way speaks well of the personal regard und friendship of the Russian
officers and the bulk of the people
toward Englishmen,

Lokiion, Oct 10.— Advices from
Shanghii report that the English gunboat Wasp which left Singapore for
Shanghai is believed to have been lost
with all hands during the recent typhoon.
PROBABLE CHANGES IN   KATES.
Sax Franoisco, Oot. 10 —It is very
probable that there will be aome important changes shortly in the export
of several articles of California produce,
which are now goiug cast at very low
rates. Some of the transcontinental
lines, it appears, are complaining of
the very low rates at which certain
classes of freight havo been carried in
competition with the Canadian Pacific
Road, and have refused to participate
in it for the future. A good deal of
oorespondence is going on between the
Southern Pacific and the transcontinental lines on the subject, and the result of .which has not yet transpired. It
is almost certain, however, that the
rate of sixty cents per hundred pounds
on sugar to tho Missouri river points
will lie dropped after the 15th of the
month, and ono of seventy-fivo cents
substituted. This will be good news
for tho Canadian Facifis, as that company will undoubtedly obtain the
greater portion of such freight at its
present rate. The sugar tonnage
going east lately has been exceedingly
heavy.
IIUMIAKIAN ELECTION.
Sofia, Oct. 10.—All the government
candidates for the new Sobranje have
been elected. There waa much roit-
ing and many killed.
ANOTHER PARACHUTE VENTVEE.
Galesburg, 111., Oct. 10.—A very
successful descent from the height of
1,000 feet was made here yesterday by
Ned Hathaway in thirty seconds. The
ascent was made by means of a hot air
balloon. The parachute ia of a new
pattern and twenty-eight feet in diameter. Tho descent was a magnificent
sight, the parachute looking like a
huge inverted rose. Hathaway struck
the ground very lightly and remained standing. It ia thought the new
parachuto obviates the chief defects
of the old styles and lessens very
muoh the danger of descending.
THE KNIOHTS AND ANARCHISTS.
Minneapolis, Oct. 10.—A lively
time was had in the E. of L. general
assembly over a resolution expressing
sympathy for the condemned anarchists. Master Workman Powderly
left the chair in order to apeak against
it, after which it was voted down by
151 to 52. Nothing else of general
intorest transpired to-day.
MORE SEALERS SEIZED.
San Francisco, Oot. 10.—The revenue cutter Rush arrived yesterday
from tho Arctic. She seized schoonen with seven thousand sealskins.
The Russians have seized three sealers
on the Siberian coast, one-American,
one British, and ono whose flag is
unknown,
A DASTARDLY OITRAOE.
Dublin, Oot. 10.—The St. Closs
stud, comprising thirty hunting horses,
the property of Captain Galloway, at
Clunsilla, near Dublin, have been
poisoned. Ten of thu horses died,
ond the others are almost certain to
bo permanently disabled if they do
not ilic. The poisoning is supposed to
be the work of a malicious persecution.
THIS MOBMSO'S DBSPATCHR'.

Nimiales, Ariz., Oct. 11.—Advices
just receiver! from Giuiymas, Mexico,
state a terrific wind storm swept over
Mazatlan on the 7th inst., destroying
buildings and carrying destruction to
everything in its path. It ia feared a
number of lives were lost., The coffee and orange crops in the vicinity
of Mazatlan ate totally destroyed.
Loss about $300,000.
TO REFORM ABUSES.
San Franoisco, Oot. 11.—A number of prominent merchants yesterday
held a quiet meeting and organized a
publio defense committee, whose object is to aid in suppressing crimes
which are now corrupting the publio
offices in this city and defeating justice. Tho A'ciiniiiu'r this morning in
an editorial on this movement saya:
"Before tho men who have undertaken tlio fight permit themselves to
rest thine will not be a judge on the
bench who can be even suspected of
taking a bribo. There will be no associates of jury fixers in the sheriffs
olllce, no police officials collecting
blackmail from Chinese gamblers and
harlots, no lawyers debauching law.
The reform will not laat forever, but
whon its force is spent it will be time
for a new popular awakening. Meanwhile the opportunity for this generation is here."

THE BLIND POUT1CTAK.
New Yore, Oct. IL—Chris. Back
ley, the blind politician of San Francisco, says the Sun to-day, has a btl|
memory and the chances an tsa to
one he remembers the talk that Inspector Byrnes bad with him whsn hs
visited New York a year or two sgo
on bis way to Europe. Daring a long
conversation about the nportsd st-
tempt to spirit Jimmy Hope, ths bank
burglar, away, the inspector said
impressively: "This is the list tins I
hsvs met you, Buckley, and I am glad
to have hsd this talk. I do not know
much about politics in San Francisoo,
but I do know something shout orimss
and criminals. I wont to tell you
now, with just as much imprsssivsnsss
as I can bring to my command, thst if
you make associates and friends of men
who outrage laws, and who make crime
their great purpose in life, you Will
suffer for it just as sure ss fate., Ths
man never lived who could associate
with criminals without having to pay s
big price for it."

A UTILE TOO THIN.
Dublin, Oct. 11.—SU of ths best
shipwrights heretofore employed st
the docks in Ireland sailed for America
yesterday, owing to continued depression of shipbuilding there, and s number of their colleagues will sail next
week. Msny of the polios are in a
state of disquiet at ths work they
are now called on to do, and are
getting ready to resign in a body and
emigrate.
RAIDED A LOTTERY.
San Fbancisco, Oot IL—Ths office
of a lottery company known as ths
Little Louisiana, on Montgomery St.,
was raided by two detectives St noon
to-day. Fifteen hundred coupons
wore captured. Ten visitors wars
arrested, and released on 950 bail
each.

THE FASTEST AFLOAT.   '
London, Oct. 11. -The Reins Re-
gente, a new dock protested cruiser,
which haa just been built forthe Spanish government, on ths Clyde, is ths
fastest sea-going war ship afloat. Lsst
week for the nrst time her speed wss
tested under a natural draught She
steamed at the rate of 19 knots or
more than 2H miles sn hour. Under
forced draught she will certainly Ste
201 knots'or 23*j miles. This i
speed whioh will enable the new \
to cross the Atlantic from New York
to Queenstown in about five days fivs
hours. Neither the Etruria or Dm-
bria wonld accomplish the asms voyage
in leu than 5 days 22 hours, and yet
these ships are the fastest merchant
steamers in existence. Spain is now
building 4 more cruisers of unusual
power.
HOPE FOI THE ANAECHI8T8.
Chicaoo, Oot. 11.—An Interview ID
published to-day with General Parsons,
s brother of the condemned anarchist,
in which the latter ssid: " The defense had positive proof that their
theory about ths enemies of ths anarchists throwing bombs at ths Ha*'
market, is true," and bs added that

The OPHowed Bailway.
Judgment has been given in the
Browning injunction oase. Browning obtained an interim injunction
restraining tho Red River Valley
Railway from crossing certain lots
of which he claimed to be tho owner, and asked tlie injunction to be
continued. Ohief Justice Wall-
bridge decides that the evidence of
Browning in the case was such as
to satisfy the court that he was not
the bona fide owner of the lots, and
was not, therefore, in the court bona
fide asking protection for his own
property, but was, rather, acting
merely in the interest of tho O.F.R,
The chief justice, therefore, doclines
to grant a continuance of tho injunction, and it iB dissolved. It
will be perceived that the dissolution of the injunction does not turn
upon the legality of the construction Of the railway at all. But in
reviewing the circumstances the
ohief justice remarks that, in his
opinion, the R. R. V. 11. has no legal
standing. The charter granted by
the Manitoba legislature having
been disallowed, it was sought to
make it stand on the Public Works
Act, but the court holds that it does
not come under that act. It follows that if the court had been
satisfied that the enjoined lands
were the bona fide properly of
Browning, the injunction would
have been, continued. If the opinion of the chief justice be well
founded, the construction of the
railway oannot proceed on any act
now in force, and it is really difficult to see how it can be carried out
without fresh legislation if any new
obstacles are put in its -way. The
only way out of the difficulty seems
to be to call a special session of the
legislature, pass a new railway bill
and rush the work through before it
can be vetoed. It seems to have
been established dearly enough that
any act done under authority of a
provincial bill is legal from the time
it receives the assent of the lieutenant-governor until the disallowance
has been signified by him by proclamation. It may be possible so to
arrange matters that a sufficient
length of time will elapse between
these two events to enable the contractors to complete the work. Mr,
Norquay's mission to raise a loan
has failed, and although money may
yet be obtained by some means or
other, it is not easy to see how the
road can be carried on if the resources of those who oppose it are
judiciously used against'it; nevertheless Premier Norquay declared
at Winnipeg the other day that it
would be completed in spite of all
opposition. |
Worth • Trial
We referred the other day to the
new demand for hops springing up
in Japan, and suggested the feasibility ot supplying that demand
from the fertile valley of the lower
Fraser, We believe there is no
reason to doubt that hop culture
here would be entirely successful
and quite profitable. The growing
of cranberries is another industry
which we are sure could be carried
on with much profit in this province.
We have several natural cranberry
marshes where the wild fruit grows
to perfection without care or culti
nbon. These berries are gathered
in large quantities for the market,
and bring such prices as make them
Xly sought for by Indians and
s. But the yield of the uncultivated berry in its natural marsh
is nothing at all compared to the
product of the best vines under-
skilful cultivation. The cost of
preparing a cranberry bed is not
very great, and when once prepared
it requires comparatively little labor
to keep it in good condition. It is
necessary to flood the vines at certain seasons and keep them under
water for a time. For this purpose
there most be an abundant supply
of water, and the conditions must
be such as to enable the flooding of
the ground without much cost. Mnny
places on the lower Fraser are admirably situated for that. There is
abandonee of water in innumerable
streams which flow into the river;
and on tke low lands the tides may
be utilised to great advantage for
(Ul purpose. There is always a
good market for cranberries, and the
Srioes are always large. Eleven
ollars a barrel may be quoted as
ihe lowest price for wild fruit, and
sometimes it goes up to fifteen dollars ond over. This season the wild
nop is almost an entire failure, and
the berries are going to be extremely
scarce and dear. Any person with
a good field of cultivated cranberries .this jail would realise larger
prrsstts than from a hundred seres of
grain. We believe some of our
farmsrs contemplate making a trial
ot rjmnbeny culture, and it will
probssWy be determined with consid-
sssble aoouracy before long what are
she real profits of this industry. It
ought i to bo the aim of oil agricul-
titlMf to devote some time at least
j» srapstlassntiag. In this sge of
advancement tho man will succeed
bsst, as • rule, who best knows the
principles and laws that govern the
Btlttwlw Industiy in which he is
engaged. Scisotifio farming will
pay muoh hotter in the long run
than faming by hop-board, and it
gives very much moro satisfaction to
the agriculturist in overy way. By
experimenting it may be determined
what branches of agriculture avo
best adapted to the peculiar conditions of the soil, or tho climnto, or
the market, and how these branches
may be conducted with the greatest
economy ond success. Let our farmers try hops, and cranberries (whero
the conditions are suitable), and
anything else whore tlioro is ti fair
prospecr of success, and we venture
to predict that the result will not be

after which lt moves easily. When the
Joints, or hinges, of tho body are stiffened
and inflamed by Rheumatism, they cannot be moved without causing the most
excruoiatingpains. Ayer's SarsapariUa,
by its action on the blood, relieves this
condition, ond restores the Joints to good
working order.
Ayer's SarsapariUa has effected, in onr
city, many most remarkable cures, in
cases which baffled the efforts of the
most experienced physicians. Were it
necessary, I could give the names of
many Individuals who have been cured
by taking this medicine. In my case it
has worked wonders, relieving me of
Rheumatism,
after being troubled with it for years. In
this, and all other diseases arising from
Impure blood, there is no remedy with
which I am acquainted, that affords such
relief as Ayer's SarsapariUa.—R. H.

would. It lias eradicated overy trace of

from chronic Bheumatisra. The disease
afflicted me grievously, in spite of all the
remedies I eoulil find, until I commenced
using Ayer's SarsapariUa. I took several Dottles of this preparation, and waa

Is only irwrond in wide limnnn interest to
tho art of money making. Yet the chief
factor in both is n little old-fanlrioinrd
I'otnuioii'Sr'iise within the comprehension
of' irverybo.ly. The body is, alter all,
only n tool of the wilL If with the first
approach of warm weather we surrender
to the hciit, without any effort to overcome the chimgod climatic conditions,
we are lnnioly to blame for our Bufferings, A little philosophy and experimenting will show the dullest that he
ku libra most who dwells most—in thought
nnd speech — upon th? weather. The
lirst principle of keeping cool is to keep
the Mind fixed on anything and everything but the height of the mercury.
The i^Mitest trouble is the eating nml
drinking?. Here people are the slaves
of iij-petite or ignorance They blindly
continue to take into the system tlio
most hem -producing foods, supplemented
hy frequent potations of iced drinks in
myriad forms. No wonder they are hot!
The food is enough to keep their blood
at a boiling point, und this is aggravated
by the ice writ r and other arctic drinks,
which retard digestion and hinder the
system from tlmrwing off the waste. The
inside of the body is ministered to nt the
expense of tlie outside. Instead of jroiir-
ing gallons of drink down the throat, the
faucet slioul 1 be turned on the wrists,
and the mouth frequently rinsed us the
jockey "sponges" his horse,
Bathing should become a religion instead of a lost art. There-should be a
siving at the bar to spend at the laundry.
Finally, there should be some work to
do. No mistake is more common than
to suppose that work is incompatible
with keeping cool. On the contrary, the
man who. routes s business ol keeping
cool Butters vastly more than he whose
mind nnd body are moderately occupied.
If great labor is necessary, it should be
judiciously arranged. As much as possible should be dono in the morning and
evening hours to avoid .the exhaustion of
tlie midday heat. If the art of keeping
cool, like that of luouey-uiiiking, thus appears to depend upon trifles, it ii.list he
remembered Unit "trifles make up perfection, and perfection is no trifle.

Vo Water Drlnlcars.
A French journal ssys to the drinkers
of water that the limestone held in de|iosit
iu the carbonated beverage finds iln way
to lire kidneys und eventually produces
l.'right'g disease. Tho writer also protests
ii^immt ice water as s provocative of
ciitarrli in tho stomach. He says water
should be drunk coot, but not iced, with
the juice of a quarter or half a lemon in
it, and swallowed slowly. It is not the
stomach which is dry, but the mouth and
throat. If you toss off s drink of water
you throw It through your mouth into
your stomach without doing the former
any good, while you injure the latter by
loading it with what is does not require.
There are grains ol truth in the above
advice, but tbe proverbial grain of salt
needs to be added several times. The
use ol very hard or artlilcially mineralized water is attended in some persons
snd under some conditions by a variety
ol injurious consequences; of which, perhaps, one of the logical would be Hriglit's
desesse. The lodgment of calcaroua deposits in the urinary organs or elsewhere
hns an evident connection with imbibing
llii'in in solution, but i(, depends absolutely on some perversion or weakening
of function alter sll The true preventive
of lorul as of general diseases is s state of
vigorous health. As to iced water, one
man's drink ia another's poison. Lemon
U good lor one snd bad for another. It
is proper to est ss well ss to drink slowly,
but not for the reasons given shove.
Thirst is k dsnsnd of the system for
replacement of th* moisture carried on in
tho excretions, especially through Increased best ol the.body nam sny cause.
The stomach Is the chief organ for absorbing the water supply, sad Ins hasting
dryness ol Its drained absorbents makes
itself felt snd attended to by the more
sensitive, bnt not slwsys dryer, tpper
portions of the alimentary canal, the
throat snd mouth. Cooling is agreeable
to them, but watering in the stoinsch is
what they essentially need, and would
do the business independently ol them,
and so would an sxUrnal bath. We
should ssy, drink slowly, snd when your
stomach stops absorbing snd begins to

PURE JAPANESE TEA.JW
Bow the Fragrant Leaf Is Planted, Grown,
Picked and Cured.
According to a Yokohama correspondent ofthe Seattle! W. T.) Pott-InteUigencer,
the foreigners residing in Japan are the
chief exporters of tea. They have largo
curing houses at the seaports where they
reside. The tea leaf partly cured is
bought from Japanese producers or their
agents. Although the ten plant is the
same, there are various grades of leaf.
Tlie younger the leaf the firmer the tea
—bo the Japanese sny. The soil and
particular locality also affect the flavor.
In their curing houses the foreign exporters put tiio leaf through a recuring
process. It is dried in metal pots heated
liv charcoal. To whnt extent it may ho
flx.'d np to suit the foreign markets is
lint g n 'rally known, but I fancy thut
few wini drink the ten imagine that it
contains Prussian blue. This la combine 1
with another powder, tne name of which
is unknown to tho writer. Tho mixture
is sprinkled ovor the leaf during the process of caring. Why is this done? It
gives th' ten a whitish, uncolored blue.
Foreign drinkers havo a dread of green
ten. I'hey imagine thnt it has been
colored by clieinicals or cured ovor copper. The truth is that the ten loaf when
cured apart from all metals and chemicals lias n greenish cast. Ths darker the
color, the stronger the tea. I havo ta'.-en
tho troublu to visit the tea orelntr Is in
thu suburbs of Tokio nnd to imp irt tho
n iti vj mode ol curing. The ton plant, as
it li lulled, is really a bush ol very hard
wojtl. To what height it would grow if
left urltri rimed I urn not able to say. It
is seldom sjirn over three feet high. It
is an evergreen. The leaf resembles in
shape that ot the salad hush. When tho
biniilinn lunched maturity, which is not
until alter several years, it flowers and
produces a round seed about the size ol n
cherrv. These seeds are planted in rows
n suitable distance apart, and the bushes
thinned out and trimmed ns they increase in sise. They do not prospor il
transplanted. The soil best adapted to
the bush is a clayey one sufticbntly
elevated to cast off any excess of moisture. There Is a general Impression that
the tea bush requires a warm climate.
Such Is not the case. It will grow wher-
over any other hard wood tree will
prosper. It is my opinion that it would
do well in certain localities in Washington Territory!
The river bottoms and marsh land
would hardly suit it, but I see no reason
wby it might not be cultivated elsewhere.
It would not be advisable to plant it in
large quantities, ns tea can be brought
cheaper from Japan than Americans can
produce it. But as an ornamental tree,
or as an evergreen hedge around a yard,
It would be both beautiful and novel.
The process of gathering the leal is 8
tedious one, but the work is mad" more
enlivening by many persons working together. The pickers are mostly wom.'ii
and children. As they pick they talk,
laugh und sing. They are paid according lo the weight of the leaves picked.
Seldom Is more than ten rents per day
earned nnd that without hoard. The
leaves ire tlrst washed aud then el rimed.
The steaming process must be done with
care, as the flavor of the lent is liable to
be affected. The steamed leaves arc put
in pans made with wooden sides and
(hick, rough Japanese paper bottoms.
These pans are about two and a half by
(our feet iu sine. Beneath them is a
i liarco.il fire, regulated so as to produce
-tho required amount of heat. A man
stands at each pan. As the leaf dries, he
rubs and tolls it in his hands. To assist
in thin process, he has a board upon
. which be places n handful of the lough
leaves, and with a rolling pin doubles
snd twists them up. Nothing in the
shspe of chemicals is put on the leaf. It
Is left to assume its natural color, which
il ot t greenish csst. Alter silting
through cosise cane selves, to extract the
powdered leaf, the light colored tea is
Sicked out.   It Is sold cheaper than the
srker colored.
Why should not such teas be sold to
foreign countries? It is perfectly pure
but hss not the peculiar odor characteristic of mostly exported tea. It has not
been doctored to suit the fanciful foreign
lute, but Japanese liku it. Foreign
cured teas sre considered by them miiih
Inferior to less cursdinthcrr own method.
Did les drinkers in foreign ennui ries
hsve both kinds, would not they too
prefer the native cured t It may hu riske J
why Jspsnese do not exiroit their own
ten? They ire beginning lo do so.
Several native companies have Ire.n
formed for the export of teas to foreign
lands. Heretofore Japanese have not
besn sufficiently familiar with foreigu
trade lo justify them in dealing direclly
'With merchants abroad. Now. after years
of experience and education, they loel
prepared to transact direct trail r. Agents
nre abroad in Enropssnd America studying the foreign markets. To handle tea
for the lorci.Mi markets requires Inrgo
capital and a close scrutiny o: the Mn tin-
tion of prices. The competition is law,
snd sometimes the profits small. There
Is no doubt bnt thst idulleraiion ol tea
is practiced. But this is partly owing to
consumers. They need not expect to
get pure, good tasting teas nt a Hilling
cost. Let them pay a tow more cents per
pound md get the genuine native-cured
srtlcle.

and Reflector n significant I'lriiiinisicnre ol
the late Rev. Dr. Stevens, thu veteran
missionary iu Burmah:
f taring his lsst visit to this country,
we hid the honor of a visit (rom him at
my toother's homo In Auburndale, when
ho gave a most touching account of his
recent return for the first timo to his
birthplace In Georgia. Ho hail met there
an aged lady, who told him how in his
infancy his mother had sent for her pastor, and, holding tlio infant In her arms,
requested him to dedicate the child in
solemn prayer to tho »ork of foreign mis-
lions. Of this act of his mother Dr. Stevens learned for the flrst time, after nearly forty years of missionary labor. 'I now

sistably to the missionary work, ltwas
the answer to my mother's prayers.'"

Constipation
IS a universal and most troublesome disorder. It causes Headache, Mental Depression, impairs the Sight and Hearing,
destroys the Appetite, and, when long
continued, causes Enlargement ol the
Liver, Inflammation of the Bowels, ind
Files. Constipation is speedily cued
by Ayer's Fills.
For a number of months I was
troubled with Gostiveness, in conser
quence of whioh I suffered from Loss of
Appetite, Dyspepsia, and a disordered
liver. My eyes also troubled me. Iwas
compelled to wear a shade over them,
and, at times, was unable to bear exposure to the light.  I was entirely
CURED BY USING
three boxes of Ayer's Pills. I have no
hesitation in pronouncing this medicine
to be the best cathartic ever made,—
James Beclcs, Poland, Ohio.
I suffered from Constipation, and, com
seqnently, from Headache, Indigestion,
and Piles, for years. Ayer's Pills, whioh
I took st the suggestion ot a Mend, have
given me effectual relief. I commenced
taking this remedy two months sgo, and
am now free from Constipation, the re*
moral of which hss caused my other
troubles to disappear, and greatly improved my general health.—W. Beeler,
Amberst/Hass.
I suffered from Consttostton, which
assumed such an obstinate form that I
feared a stoppage of the bowels. Two
boxes of Ayer's Pills cured me, completely.—D, Burke, Saco, Me.        TT

A Pecnllar Process,
Capt. Peele has now in process of
embalming a seven pound salmon for
Mr. Thos. Mowat, fisheries inspector,
and which, from present indications,
is likely to prove a complete success.
The preparation is in the form of a
of a liquid and was invented by a German who claims it will preserve a Iish
so that it can lie in the open air for
years and still be, to all appearances,
as fresh aa when taken from the
water. The liquid is injected into the
heart from where it is forced into, the
arteries. This arrests tho process of
decay and prevents tho decomposition
of the body. After the fluid has been
ejected into the arteries for a sufficient
length of time the fish is then steeped
in the liquid for 4 or 5 days which
completes the embalming and the fish
is then in a state of preservation that
will last for years. Tho most peculiar
thing about the preparation is, Hint
when the preserving process is over,
the tins of the fish stand out the same
at when in motion in the wator. If
the experiment on thia salmon is successful one fish of every species that
can be procured in these waters will be
preserved and sent to the museum at
Ottawa. Oapt. Peele is devoting his
strictest attention to the success of tho
undertaking, and with his woll known
sbility and scientific knowledge, is
sure to bring the experiment to u favorable termination, if there is any
possibility of doing so.
The superiority of Mother Graves'
Worm Exterminator is shown by its
good effects on the children. Purchase
a bottle and give it a trial.

BBTOBTS.   :
His Worship reported that the Sisters hospital complained about the
drainage in that vicinity.
Coun. Duncan said the mattor wns
in hands and would bo attended to
iniinediatly.
His Worship said he wished to bring
the attention of the council to the condition of Front street. The Btreet
boing narrow and a great deal of traffio
over it unless something is done in tho
way of gravelling it before the rainy
season sets in the Btreet would become
almost impassable.
The report of the ohief of police was
handed in aud read.
Coun. Jacques reported that the filling in of the foot of Douglas Btreet,
would cost $700; the work to be either
piling and planking or crib work. Report received.
The financial statement for, September was read.
Conn. Curtis reported that a tax
collector had been appointed at a com-
mission of 5 per cent. Ho nlso aaked
the clerk how tho collector had.succeeded.
The city clerk reported that 8750
had been collected.
Tho board of worka reported that
Mr. Moresby, had no claim against
the city.   Report adopted.
Coun. Shiles reported that the plans
and specifications for Cunningham
street improvement were in, but the
preBontstato of city finances,he thought,
would not permit of the work being
done at present.
Ooun. Jacques aaid that many petitions for other streets were in before
Cunningham street and he thought
that first como should be first served.
Coun. Duncan sa.d it would be; well
while finances are so low to make no
improvements, but thoso actually required.
It was moved, seconded and carried
that the specifications be laid on the
table. '
Moved by Coun. Jacques, seconded
by Coun. Duncan, that the thanks of
the council be tendered to the Victoria
Daily Colonist for the able manner in
which it brought to the notioe of the
publio of this province the systematic
ignoring of this city in the official
hand books and time tables of the C.
P. railway ; and alBo .regret that although we have two local papers published in this city, we have to go to
another town to find a champion for
our rights.   Carried.
A disoussion arose over the remittal
of taxes on tho Sisters hospital.
Coun. Duncan, was of tho opinion
that it would be a bad plan to commence remitting taxes on any institution. Thore could be no doubt, but
tho hospital was worthy of every assistance, but it would be a bad precedent
to remit the taxes.
His Worship Considered the hospital
a very valuable institution, but did
not favor remitting the taxes. He
would prefer making a charitable grant
in tho samo amount
Ooun. Elliott moved, seconded by
Coun. Shiles that the taxes be not remitted, biit that the sum of $130, to
bo paid by the hospital towards building the box druin, be reduced by the
amount of taxes on which the hospital
buildings stand.
Coun. Jacques moved in amendment,
that the taxes be struck off' for this
year.
Crriiii. Curtis seconded the motion
and Bald lie did not bolieve things
should be done by halves. He was in
favor of coming out boldly on any
matter he thought worthy of support
and he would like to see the taxes on
the hospital struck off altogether.
Coun.. Duncan, wished to inform
Ooun. Curtis, thnt ho was not afraid
ot expressing himself plainly nn any
Bubjoct, he had always dono so and
would continue to do so. He was not
trying to got up*n little clr cap notoriety
but would, while in the council, do bis
duty impartially and fur tho general
good.
Cuun. Elliot, agreed that remitting
taxes was a bad plan and any aid
should be given in the shape of a gift.
Ho would favor that mode nf proceeding.
The amendment was then put and
lost by 4 to 3.
The original motion was next put
to a vote and carried.
Ooun. Jacques asked how the arbitration with the 0. P. R. was getting
on.
His Worship aaid the arbitration
would soon be completed.
On motion the oouncil then, adjourn
od for two weeks.
N. MoRae, Wyihridge, writes: "I
have sold largo quantities of Dr. Thomas'
Eolectrio Oil; it'ls used for colds, soro
throat, croup Ac, and in fact for any
affection of the throat it works like magic. It Is a sure cure for burns, wounds
