A Ward as to Advertising.
Few merchants advertise too
much; most merchants do not advertise enough. "A newspaper advertisement may not be often read,"
it hu been well said, "still, it makes
the name and the business of the
man familiar, and its presence regularly in the columns of a paper inspires confidence in the stability of
the enterprise. We are no advocates of indiscriminate and wasteful
advertising, but a card in some respectable and influential journal is
as necessary to a merchant as a
sign-board. And the manufacturer
should patronize the trade journal
which is read by the class of persons who require his wares." Nor
should the claims of good local journals to a share in the advertising of
their townsmen, be forgotten. A
live newspaper is often a distinct
benefit to a town, making the place
known and respected in a degree
corresponding to the influence of
the paper. In proportion to the
reciprocal advantage, so is the reciprocal duty: for if a town be benefited by its newspaper, the obligation of such townsmen to support
it, is clear.—Monetary Times.

Mrs. Gilligan, the renowned puncher of the Numidian lion, is to be
married in Madison-square Garden,
Kew York, in February, under the
management of F. T. Barnun. Two
weeks ago Mrs. Gilligan was hardly
known outside her own neighborhood. She sprang into prominence
from the prodding of an escaped
lion from the burning of tho .winter
quarters of the greatest show on
earth. The lion was dining on Mis.
Gilligan's cow. Mrs. Gilligan heard
the cow lowing and moaning and
she hurried to the cow-house and
smote the lion with a hoe-handle.
The lion paid no attention to Mrs.
Gilligan, as he was occupied, with
the cow. Mrs. Gilligan thereupon
whacked tho fierce animal a second
time. The king of beasts then sent
forth an awful roar, whioh caused
Mrs. Gilligan to hastily withdraw.
Help was summoned and the lion
was shot Mrs. Gilligan was given
a fine Jersey cow by Barnum, and
was afterward hired for the next
season by the showman. Now comes
the story that Don Diego Espanoza,
a ranchman of the West, offered
himself in marriage to Mrs. Gilligan,
and arrangements have been made
to have the knot tied in Madison-
square Garden. The wedding ceremonies will occur upon a raised
platform. The bride is to stand
upon the skin of the Numidian lion
which she belabored. In the adjoining ring are to be mounted
knights and ladies and dens of wild
beasts will be brought in and also
a aide-show. The other details are
not yet arranged, but the steam
calliopes will be tuned up to Mendelssohn's "Wedding March," ond
twenty downs will strew flowers.—
to science, Willoughby will remain
ond endeavor to bring down the
remainder of the skeleton.—Alaska

Topeka, Kan., Dec. 23.—The situation in Western Kansas, has greatly

Twenty carloads were shipped yesterday from the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Company's mines in Colorado,

Last week Dick Willoughby and
Phil Corcoran returned from a prospecting trip a short distance up the
coast They brought baok with
them what to all appearance seems
to be a portion of the backbone of
some mammoth land animal. In
conversation with Dick we learned
the following particulars of the find:
As he was coming down over an immense snow slide about three miles
inland, when near the bottom he
espied partly projecting from the
debris of the slide a portion of the
skeleton of a mammoth animal.
Upon making the discovry he returned to camp, and then in company with Mr. Corcoran, returned
to exhume their prize. When dug
out they found they bad only a portion of a skeleton, but what portion
they were unable, from its massive
and strange appearance, to determine. Altogethertheythoughtitwould
weigh about three tons, and as they
wanted to bring a specimen home
with them, they found they would
have to chop off a piece, as any portion of it was too heavy to be transported. A projection from the main
trunk, supposed to be a portion of
I -the baokbone running from the hip,
**as chopped off. When free from
the trunk it separated into several
parts, as though a number of three
cornered troughs had been placed
one within the other. The smallest
portion was selected and brought to
town. It is about seven feet in
length, and has the appearance of
two boards being nailed together
forming an obtuse angle. It is in a
good state of preservation. Dr. Geo.
M. Dawson, Asst. Director of the
Dominion Geological Survey, examined the bone, and pronounced
it as that belonging to some extinct
land animal of mammoth proportions, in all probability not known

Speaking ol the completion of tlio
Oregon & California Railway, tbe
Portland Oregonian says: "The
rustlers actively in connection with
railway construction on tho Pacific
northwest slope will not subside until connection is made with the Canadian ifticific. Then the circuit will
be complete. That connection will
be made shortly'by way of Westminster and the Southern line, tho
Seattle and West Coast route. That
accomplished, the changes in the
channels of trade and commerce will
be something few people ever
dreamed of seeing realized in this
part of the world." There is no
doubt but the results of the completion of this missing link will be far-
reaching, aud that the benefits to
this province, and especially to this
district, will be very great
We ar* sorry to notice that our
very excellent cotemporary the Victoria Times has laid itself liable to
an action at law by the publication
of an unlawful advertisement. The
Dominion statutes expressly declare
that any person who "mokes, prints,
advertises or publishes" any matter
for the promotion of a raffle or lottery
shall be liable to a penalty of 820.
The same penalty applies to those
who get up the raffle, and to all who
buy or sell tickets. Our cotemporary, therefore, commits a double offense, inasmuch as he lends the influence of his columns for the purpose of soliciting his readers to commit a breach of the law, and he commits a breach of it himself. We
are under the impression that the
Times published the raffle advertisement without considering the fact
that its publication is a positive
breach of the law, and when the attention of the publisher is called to
the fact, the advertisement will
doubtless disappear.
All sorts of rumors and contradictions are dying about with respect to
coming ohanges in relation to the
Canadian Pacific Railway. Yesterday we referred to the statement of
the Brandon Mail, that the monopoly clause was to be abandoned
lor a certain consideration. It has
also been stated in several quarters
that the Canadian government is
about to take over the railway from
the company, and run it as a government railway. The first rumor has
about it the appearance of probability, but for the other we are of opinion there is no foundation. It is
not probable the company would
give up a road that is now paying
over expenses, with a very bright
prospect before it, without receiving
a consideration so large as to be be-
yondj the resources of the country.
It has been the opinion of many persons all along that the C.P.R. ought
to have been built and operated as
a government enterprise, but it
would be folly for Oanada to take it
now at such a figure as would satisfy the shareholders.
The custom of observing tho 25th
of December as the anniversary of
tha advent of tho world's Messiah
goes away back in the centuries. It
is a custom established by the
ohurch, although in modern times its
observance has to a great extent
passed out of the domain of religion,
and it is simply looked upon as a
holiday. There are many really devout people who regard tiio religious
observance of any day except the
Sabbath as an invention of man, aud
not at all binding on the conscience:
there are others who think Christmas and Good Friday even more
sacred than the Sabbath. The
former was established in commemoration of the oreation of the
world: the latter in commemoration of its redemption; and as
the work of redemption is regarded
as of greater importance to man
than the creation, so the days
which commemorate the greater
event are regarded with the greater
honor, To the worldly man all
things are seculor; but to the good
man There should be nothing
secular, because every act of
his should be inspired by a desire
to glorify the Divine Being—
"Whether, therefore, ye eat or drink,
or whatsoever ye do, do all to the
glory of Cod." We shall not undertake to determine whether Christmas
day skouldbeobserved as adayofrest
and worship in the same sense as
the Sabbath, or whether it is wrong
to keep it limply as a holiday.
tet each one for himself intelligently and conscientiously determine
-what is his duty, and follow the
conclusion of his reasoning. Christmas bu always been regarded as an
appropriate bme for merry-making,
and especially lor tht performance
ol aet* ol benevolence and philkn
thropy. While we are enjoying the
good things whioh prosperity has
brought within oar reaoh, let us not
forget the poor and unfortunate, to
whom Christmas brings no pleasures
and few recollections that they cere
to cherish. There is nothing more
beautiful than that charity whioh
seeks no reward. The Columbian
wish** all iti; readers a Merry
Christine* and a Happy New Tear.

Hum-Selling.
It is on tho certainty that the appetite
for liquor once fixed can nover be
broken, that those in the liquor
traffic build; and they have in the
very nature of the connection between
the stomach and the mind, a very
broad and wide corner-atone. They
know that, with the liquor made in
this day, all that is necessary for them
to acquire a man's estate is to get the
habit fixed on him, and thcey know
just as well, that to keep their trade
good all that is necessary, when a
customer dies, is to fasten the appetite
on a fresh boy. They quite understand that the boy will graduate into
a spendthrift, and, finally, a thief and
a nuisance, and that they will get
everything he can beg, borrow and
steal; but they take him jrsttho same,
go muoh beer will run through him
before he dies, and that beer he will
manage somehow to pay for. He will
not pay his butcher, baker, or tailor,
but he does manage to pay for his
liquor, and that is all the liquor-seller
thinks of.
This fact in the make-up of men,
converts every seller of liquors into a
hunter of men and boys. This fact
was what changed the lager-beer of the
country from three or four per cent, of
alcohol' to twelve and fourteen. It
was to make drunkards faster, to get
men and boys,under control quicker,
to fasten them in three months instead
of a year. This is what caused tho
adulteration of what are known as
"hard liquors," and the additional
strength put into malt liquors.
If this sort of devilish ingenuity in
debauching mankind does not call for
the intervention of the law, 1 know of
nothing that does. Certainly this sort
of thing would not be tolerated in anything else, and why it should be in
this trade, the most gigantic of all the
instrumentalities for the dragging
down of humanity, is one of the puzzles that good men cannot solve.
Possibly the enormous extent of the
trade is its protection. The aspiring
politicians of the country dread nothing so much as this one power. It is
the Warwick in American politics. It
makes and unmakes.
Rum ia the source direct of 00 per
cent of all the crime and pauperism of
the country. Tu rum may be charged
up the cost of the police, the criminal
courts, and everything that is costly
to the tax-payer. Ninety per cent of
the murders are to be ci-odited to rum,
and almost every gallows-tree is rooted in a whisky barrel. Take your
jaih, your poor-houses, your lunatic
asylums, aud all the machinery of justice and charity, figure their costs,
snd add to it the amount actually
paid for the poison, odd to this the
loss to the labor of the country through
this ono agency, and the pocket-nerve
receives a very severe shook. AH this
has been said and written a thousand
times, but It cannot bo said and written too often.
Every whisky shop is a school of
crime and a never-failing fountain of
pauperism. Tbey are stronger than
the school and ohuroh, and they can
pall down more effectually than the
other agencies can build up.
Prohibition is a certainty iu this
country, and that within a very few
years. Every civilised nation on earth
is looking for some cure for the greatest evil that afflicts the earth. The
fact thut all countries are trying to
"regulate" it, is an admission that it is
an evil, and the centuries have demonstrated that thore is no sense whatever in trying to regulate an evil.
Evils aro to be killed, not regulated.
The question of to-day Is, not whether
the individual man shall havo
the right to poison himself, but whether an organisation shall have tho right
by means of a poison to demoralize
mankind for profit. It is a question
in which every working man, every
employer, every father, and every mother in the oountry has a direct interest. It is a question whether the law
can be made to restrain the criminal-
maker as well as the criminal, to pro*
vent the manufacture of paupers instead of supporting paupors; in short
whether the community hns the right
to protect its weaker members against
organized demoralisation.
That communities have this right is
the sssertion of the prohibitionists,
and who shall say that thoir position is
not impregnable?—Petrolum V. Nasdy.

Cardinal Manning, that respresenta-

clergyman, states: "I wish well to all
trades, but with a reserve, I hope the
baker may bake and sell more bread aa
long he lives. 1 hope that every
clothier may sell more yards of broadcloth and mako more coats every year
that passes over his head. I hope that
the farmer may sell more wheat. But
I oannot uy in my heart and conscience that I hope the brewer will
brew more beer, or Ihe distiller distill
more spirits, or the publicans sell more
of both, There is a limit to my good
wishes. I wish all trades may prosper
eioept one. The prosperity that I
wish to that one trade is that it should
cease."

la praise ot Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, hollering u I do that, but ror its use, I
should long since have died from lung
troubles.—B. Brogdon, Palestine, Tex.
About six months ago I had a severe
Hemorrhage ol the Lungs, brought on
by a dlatreaaing Cough, which deprived
moot sleep Ino rest. I had used vart-
 and expectorants,
without obtaining relief. A friend ad.
vised me to try
Aysr's Cherry Pectoral.
I did so, end am happy to say that lt
helped me at once. By continued use
thll medicine curod my cough, and, I
ut satisfied, saved my life.—Mrs. E.
Cohorn, 18 Becond St., Lowell, Mass.
I hare used Ayer's Cherry Peotoral
tor Onr a year, and sincerely believe I
should have been In my grave, had it
not been tor this medicine. It has cured
me ot» dangerous affection of the lungs,
lor which I lad almost despaired of ever
finding ft remedy.—D. A. McMullen,
Windsor, Province of Ontario.
Ayer'a Cherry Peotoral saved my llie.
Two year, s 501 took a. very severe Cold
which settled on my tangs. I consulted
phyaiolane, and took tbo remedies they
pniolbed, but failed to obtain relief
until I began using Ayer'a Cherry Pectoral. Two bottles of this medicine
completely restored my health.—Liwrlo

Its position Is ascertained annually from
a detailed valuation ln which every item
of liability Is inoluded.
Its progress has been unexampled ln

Ita policies are Indisputable after threo
years, and non-forfeltable after two years*
existence,
Its profits are distributed npon an equitable oasis. The profits to one class of
policy holders are not lessened to give
larger profits to any other olass, which
method affords superior advantages over
the uniform bonus plan of distribution.

given last night hy the Juvenile Templars, of Jubilee Lodge No. 1, I.O.G.

have ever tried for rheumatism."

Tke Hastings Ball.
The ball given by Mr. George Black,
of Hastings, last night, was one of
the most enjoyable affairs ever held on
tho Inlet. About 300 invitations wero
issued, and fully two-thirds of that
number took advantage of Mr. Black's
hospitality. The' preparations made
for the reception of guests wero on a
large and attractive scale. The most
of the invited guests wore from Vancouver and went over ou a speoial train
which the 0. P. R. provided fur tho
occasion. Many guests from Westminster and Moody villo were present,
snd a few from Victoria. The room
that was used fur danoing is in the
old hotel, which is olose to the railway
track. The hall was most tastefully
decorated, and it was generally remarked that more talent was displayed
in arranging the decorations than on
any previous occasion uf the kind in
either Vancouver or Westminster. It
is almost imnussible to give nn accurate description of the ornamentations
as thoy were so numerous and of suoh
unique design. The dancing was kept
up in it must spirited manner until 4
0 clock this morning, when the train
left for Vancouver taking most of tho
guests who still remained at that hour.
About 1 o'clock a splendid supper was
served in the dining-room of the
Brighton hotel, which was highly appreciated by the numerous guests.
Mr. Blaok, who is well-known for his
hospitality, hualed himself the greater
part of the time in looking after tho
wants and comforts of his guests, and
so well did he accomplish these ends
that the whole company joined in
giving him a vote of thanks for his
kindness nnd attention. Mr. Samuel
Brighouse ably ssnisted Mr. Black in
doing the honors uf the occasion. Just
before the train left for Vancouver,
three lusty cheers, and a tiger, wero
given for Mr. Black, and "He's a jolly
good fellow" was sung with much spirit
and good will. The Hastings contingent responded in a like manner. As
the train pulled out the happy passen-
Sre joined with a will in singing the
miliar words of "Auld Lang Syno."
Mr. Blaok added a host of friends lsst
night to the long list hia hospitality has
won him on previous occasions. Too
much praise oannot be given the
music, furnished by the Westminster
orchestra, whioh was declared by all
to bo tho best they had ever danced to.
W. W. McLellan. Lyn, N. 8., writes!
"I was afflicted with rheumatism, and
had given up all hopes of a oure. By
chance I saw Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil
recommended, I Immediately sent (fifty
miles) and purchased four bottles,aid
with only* two. applications I waa able io
get around, and although I have no;
used one bottle, I am werir-ly well. Tile
other three bottles I gavo mound to my
neighbors, and I have hsd so many calls
for more, that I feel bound to reliove the
afflicted by writing to you for a supply,"

Since his return from abroad, about
four weeks ago, Dr. Garrow has beon
confined to his room by a severe illness from which, we nro glad to Bay,
he has now recovered. He has opened
an office on McKenzie st, and when
the Masonic blook.has been completed
he will occupy offices in that building.
Dr. Garrow spent about six months of
this year at the Royal Infirmary of
Edinburgh and Guy's Hospital, London, whero he had the benefit of practising with sumo of tho foremost physicians in the British empire. While
there he attended the clinical lectures
also; and these splendid opportunities
of obtaining valuable medical knowledge ought to be very useful to him.

Losuott, Deo. 23.—Respecting the
statement that the firm of John Elder
& Company of tho Fairfield works at
Glasgow, had contracted to build three
steamers of 3000 tons each, for the
Pacific service, I am able to stato thst
no contract has, as yet, been issued.
The Imperial subsidy itself has, as yet,
neither been granted nor accepted by
the Company, and the execution of
the mail contract, has therefore, not
been completed. The government has
merely assented on general principles
to subsidize a monthly service to the
extent of £45,000 annually. The details whioh are necessary to the completion of the contract aro not yet
settled, although they will be settled
shortly. Then the compnny will arrange for the construction of the neo-
cessary steamers, and it is very possible, seeing the Elder Company's previous connection with tho Canadian
Pacific Bailway gCompany, tbat the
ootttWQlnjay'ftflg'ventothem. It iB
estimated that the total subsidy during the ten years, including the Du-
minion Government's subsidy of £15,-
000 anuunlly, will bo £000,000, which
is amply sufficient to cover the cost of
these tnree Btoamers. Tho service Is
not expected to be is operation boiora
the spring of 1889.  ,
