Sunday Labor.
The report on Sunday Labor,
which hss recently been issued by
the Oiiriuiiti Government, has a
direct bearing on the welfare of
tho industrial classes throughout
the world.. ..Under the stress of
competition with other countries, especially with"Great'Britain, -German artisans have been driven to
labor on Sundays. "The amount of
work varies in the different states,
but in Saxony wc sre told that only
the hours of divine worship are
exempt. Nearly four hundred commercial and industrial associations
have been consulted on the desirability of reform. Of these, a
small number advocate total prohibition, and a small proportion do
not desire any change; but a large
majority are in favor of partial prohibition. Here the matter rests for
the present. We cannot believe
that so thoughtful a people as the
Germans will permanently acquiesce
in a custom fraught with, infinite
mischief to the community.. We
do not touch upon the religious
aspect of the question. The need
of adequate repose of mind and
body arises out of the limitation of
our powers. A day of rest would
remain a social necessity if the Jewish and Christian Sabbaths were
abolished. Perpetual drudgery
would stunt both mind and body.
Life would be robbed of hops and
brightness if a periodic rest did not
break the monotony of toil. Industrial greatness would be dearly
purchased at the cost of physical
degeneration and moral feebleness.:
But we do not believe that even as
working-madrln"Al(fei:tJttiiidustrial
classes gain* by laboring old ' tUS'
seventh day. A sentient machine;
needs frequent recuperation of its!
powers; if it is to do its work
effectively. Drive it on day after
day without pause, and you reduce
its.elasticity, lt still moves and
and acts, but its results are inferior
in both quantity and quality. The
German government is less fair-see
ing than we suppose if it does not
intervene to check a practice which
though it may seem to meet a present need, cannot fail to injuriously
affect the quality of the future population ^of the empire. Even the
soldiers of a future Bismarck will
be of inferior calibre if their fathers
have been for generations chained
like galley-slaves to the oar of a
supposed commercial necessity. England, we trust, will not bo tempted
to followed tho example set us by our
Teutonio neighbors. Our competition with continental industries
has become very keen and
close. By bounties lavished by
foreign governments, our sugar factories have been shut up. In many
branches ot hardware we are being
undersold. What then! Shall we
abolish ouf Sunday, and work seven
days) By doing so, we might drive
German workmen into a life of yet
more hopeless toil and secure for
our artisans a temporary advantage;
but we should perpetrate a cruelty
on both Germans and Englishmen.
The career, if we may call it such,
of our indestrial classes is ulready
hard and monotonous enough. Let
us rather try to make their life
brighter and more varied. To
many of them tbe occupations of
church and chapel are not a pleasure; but we have no right to punish
them with deprivation of those
secular pleasures which are innocent,
and which bring relaxation to tho
strained sinews and refreshment
to the wearied brain. To our clergy
of all persuasions, as men set up for
the instruction and civilisation of
the community, belongs the duty of
aiding in the work of brightening
the lives of our toiling millions.—
Leicester Chronicle.

roWDEtUY'8 ADDRESS.
Minneapolis, Oct. 7.—Tho annual
addreu of General Master Workman
Powderly which wa. presented to the
general assembly yesterday afternoon
Jus caused . a . decidad commotion
among soino of the factions... The opinion expressed concerning the address
are as varied ns they are irrcoueilable.
The supporters of Powderly as enthusiastic in their praise although some of
them admit there is a mistiness of
meaning about his reference to the anarchists, and too much of an inclination to temporise is apparent in hi.
inferential suggestions that only the
men possibly convicted of the immediate action for the murder should be,
hanged. But while, his friends are opj
the whole satisfied with the document,)
it furnished abundant material for his
opponent to make music of. The
utterances in relation to anarchy and
the orders are received with general
favor although they will not deter the
friends of the condemned men from
making vigorous efforts in their be- \
half. That portion, however, io which
Powderly declares that auanhists in
the order have plotted its destruction,
that he has proofs, and he will preaent
them, and that every avowed anarchist
should be compelled to withdraw or!
be expelled, lias created a good sized'
sensation, and there is a general
sentiment that the matter should be
shifted to the bottom, no matter who
may be hurt. There is a division of
opinion among the delegate, from
Canada regarding the suggestion that
they .hould start provincial assemblies,
and note the result before insisting
upon a separate jurisdiction, seceding
from the order. But the conciliatory
tone of tho address towards thu Dom-,
inion membership .and especially the1
.suggestion that a legislative committee
shodld remain at Ottawa during the'
sessions of Dominion Parliament for
purpose of watching tho progress of
!oie legislation, has had a modifying
effect, and the Canadians will probably
bo satisfied to accept whatever they
can get in tho way of recognition. The,
proposition to establish a beneficial
branch of the order and adopt new
plans for the regulation of the state,
territorial, mixed and, trade, assemblies, will be carefully considered,
while the proposal to demand of congress the creation of the department
of labor, will be unanimously endorsed
and a Btronn commission appointed to
curry into effect.
EARL SPKNCEK ON IRELAND.
London, 7 —-Early Spencer,. in a
speech at Alberyswith this evening,
said that ho was satisfied that tbe
Land League had nothing whatsoever
to do with crime in Ireland. Referring to the state of crime in Ireland, he
said he would not advocate a breech of
the law, but according to the present
condition of affairs, he could expect
nothing different. He felt a stronger
conviction than ever Ireland stood in
no need of Home Rule.
THE CROWN PRINCE'S HEALTH.
London, Oct. 7.—The fact of the
Crowd Princo Frederick William going
to Lugo Maggiore, is takeu a. a confirmation of the widespread German
belief that he is not only Buffering
from general debility but that the
throat trouble, nover under tho control if his English physician, is much
worse than it has been it any time
sinco the patient forsook b:s regular
drrctois for tho London specialist.
The German physicians, not only those
who formerly attended the Prince,
but other equally skilled practitioners,
hnvo never for a moniont ceased to
distrust Dr. Mackenzie's diagnosis of
the dure and are now more than ever
fearful that ho has been over confident
and pci'initted hi. professional pride to
impair is judgment.
Morocco's new sultan.
London, Oet. 7.—Tiio roport of the
death nf Sultan Muloy Hassan of
Morncciis confirmed, trie has been
succeeded by his 16 yonr old son, who
took the oath of office over the dead
body of his father, and immediately,
upon assuming of officii, appointed hi.
favorite uncle his grand Vizier.
TRADE RETOtNS, .,
London, Oct. 7.—Report of the
Board of Trade' for the
month of September shows the imports tu have increased £1,710,000 over
September 1880, and the exports as
compared with same month, increased £1)00,000,
THIS mORNINfi'S DISPATCHES.
ALWAYS PLOTTINlr DESTRUCTION.
Minneapolis, Oct. 8.—A portion of
Powdetly's address delivered Wore the
Knights of Labor, declaring' that anarchists in tire order plotted its destruction, thnt ho lias pi-oofs he will present
to them, and that overy avowed anarchist
should be compelled to withdraw or be
expelled, has created a sensation. Thero
Is a general sentiment that the matter
should Iw sifted to the bottom.
NEW 0. P. R. STEAMERS.
Montreal, Oct. 8.—Sir Geo. Stephen,

aud an investigation discovered tho
bodies of 13 babies in a shocking state of

ormerly occupied by a midwife, and
it was supposed for hin she undertook

born out of wedlock. The woman is aow
under arrest. ,../-.'.,

Party newspapers in eastern
Oanada seem to view the probable
appointment of Sir John Macdonald as a moinbor of the fishery com.
mission, solely from a party standpoint Liberal newspapers, therefore, generally condemn tho appointment, while, of course, the
organs of tho other party praise
it with equal cordiality. In many
ways Sir John is particularly fitted
for the work of the commission,
and we are not sure that Oanada
could furnish a more capable representative. His diplomatic experience has been quite extensive, and
he ought to possess a very good
knowledge of the business in hand.
Sir Charles Tupper and Hon. Edward Blake have also been mentioned as possible commissioners,
and either of them, or Sir A. T,
Gait, would probably discharge the
duties of the position with credit to
himself and satisfaction to the country. From the tone ot tbe British
press and public men it seems pf»li-
able that Great Britain will back
Oanada in what are deemed her just
fishing rights, and wo ought to be
represented by a person whose
knowledge of the facts will enable
him to act with intelligence, and
whose backbone will not grow weak
beforo opposition and discouragement
To all unprejudiced observers it
must appear certain that the cause
of home rule is making substantial
progress in Great Britain. We believe the time is not for off when
such concessions will be made by
the British government as will satisfy the reasonable demands of the
Irish people. It must have become
obvious that without substantial
concessions no lasting union can be
maintained. It may be that the
demands of the Irish in some respects go to such a leugth as to make
compliance with them exceedingly
difficult if justice is to be done to
England and Scotland; but the circumstances of the island are peculiar, and it will surely be better in
the interests of peace to stretch a
point than to maintain the present
condition of perpetual discontent.
When the grievances of Ireland
have been adjusted we may confidently look for rapid and substantial
progress in that country. In many
respects the Irish are now a source
of weakness to the empire. In the
event of a great war they could not,
in their present temper, be relied
upon for much assistance. Better
make a sacrifice for the sake of contentment, for pacified Ireland would
quickly become loyal, and the
strength of the empire would be
immensely increased.
There bas been considerable disappointment at the result of this
season's operations in the mining
regions of 'British Columbia. It
was believed that the developments
of the year would be very much
more important than they have
been, and great results were looked
{or especially in quartz. There
have been several new discoveries
which promise large things, and
the exact value of which cannot
yet be accurately determined. Chief
among them may be mentioned the
silver bonanza at Illecillewaet, in
which several mining companies ate
interested. Although these mines
have been worked very little, there
seems no room to doubt that they
contain enormous wealth, and that
they will yield a handsome fortune
to those who have been fortunate
enough to get possession of them.
Bnt of the gold quartz there seems
to be little more now known than
there was a year ago. We have
had encouraging reports and reports
discouraging, and between the two
one can come only to the conclusion
that at present the success of the
gold quarts mines so far discovered
is at least doubtful. There are
some who declare that our quartz
mines are a fraud. We are not of
that opinion. We believe there
will yet be found among them many
veins that will yield a rich reward
to those whose enterprise may develop them. We are sanguine, also,
that quartz veins will some day be
discovered in this country so rich
and extensive that the eyes of the
world will open with amazement
when they hear of the wonderful
new El Dorado. Fifty millions of
dollars worth of gold has been
wasted up in ths Fraser Kivor and
its tributaries, and it would be safe
to assert that then is more than a
hundred times that amount still
lying unreclaimed in the bed of the
riser. Wliere . the washings have
bean so Immensely rich there must
be a, source of supply equally rich
afcitoaat, and when that source comes
to be uncovered the world may prepare to wonder. But that time has
not come, and as yet great uncer
tsinty hangs over quartz mining.
Every person who has examined
the auriferous belts of British Columbia is confident that there are
immense i areas whioh will some day
bs worked with large profits to the
owners. Onr faith remains unshaken in the richness of our gold
fields, bnt the expectations for tho
ysar that is now closing have certainly not been realised, Perhaps
next year will give us better results.

Save the Youth.
The supreme demand and work of
the present day, say. the Rev. L. F.
Bickford in the Pioneer, is to save the
youth. Why let them grow up in dissipation, to ruin themselves and cast
a blight over the lives of parents and
friends, and become a disgrace to the
community! Why suffer them to bo-
come confirmed in evil habits, bound
by the strong chain of appetite, and
then, with agony and tears, and prayers try to rescue them, while the open
■aloon, unchecked, is continuing its
deadly and ruinous work, and spreading its fiery devastation, all ovor the
land?
The youth must bo taught reverence
and respect for morals and religion.
They must learn that these are their
true nfeguards, and that it is a noble
thing to stand on the side of morality
and religion against all forms of vioe
and evil. We must teach thorn the
same with reference to the home; that
home is a sacred citadel, ever to be
guarded from the foul touch of that
ruthless destroyer, the liquor traffic.
If a man cannot protect his home,
his name, his character, his ohildren
from defilement, temptation and vice,
then public sentiment is at a low ebb,
and law and government are meaningless things.
Public sentiment depends upon the
kind of teachers it has. Government
depend, upon the kind of hands it
fall. into. If wc would have these become what they should be, we must
■ee to it that the youth maintain a high
respect for virtue, morality, religion
and law. If we would save the youth,
we must not only rescue and protect
them, but we must root out the cause
of their ruin. And tho majesty of law
and the power of government must be
invoked to do this. Law must be respected and obeyed. A nation of lawbreakers would bo the greatest way-
mark of sin and folly over Bet upon the
pathway of nations, as they march on
to their destiny.
To demand of government to tako
cognizance of tho moral welfare of the
community is the right of the people,
and when they speak demundingcertain
enactments it should mean something.
When they express their wish for the
enactment of certain laws to proteot
that which is dearest to tliom—their
homes, their sons, and the holy Sabbath—these laws must be made to
mean everything they say. And tlie
liquor power, mighty as it is in money
and influence, must not be permitted
to .toy the execution nor continue a
violator of the law. The fact is, even
under the present imperfect laws
against liquor-selling, more than half
the liquor traffic is in violation of law.
It is the great law-breaker uf the land,
the outlaw of outlaws. Let the people
make it a oomplete outlaw, and make
it feel that it ia amendable to law, and.
It will have to bow to the will of the'
people.
The only remedy by which to save
the youth, to save the lioinc, to save
the nation, is complote and uncompromising constitutional prohibition of
the liquor traffic- As Christians we
recognize that our religion teaches us
to be true to the highest interests of
our fellow-men both in their private
and national (rapacity. There ia before us to be wrought out the greatest
triumph of our Christian civilization,
and we must keep it a Christian civilization, 1 mean the triumph of the
people over the heart - desolating,
home-destroying, youth-ruining, mnu-
■laying, liquor-traffic; and this Christian nineteenth century of light shall
not close until it be done.
Ono of the Causes.
A correspondent writing from Langley suggests that ono of the principal
causes of the increase of saloons in
this province is that tlio magistrates
are appointed by government irrespective of tho view, of the people on
temperance, and sometimes for political purposes. He complains that they
are now suffering from this came in
Langley, and charges the senior member for this district with promoting
Buoh appointments, aild adds: "Tho
right way is, that when magistrates
aro to be appointed, let the peoplo
nominate thoso whom they know to be
sound on all great questions and who
also possess the necessary qualifications
to ensure respect for tho oflico, and
not, as is too frequently tho case, the
vtry opposite." This and other reforms in connection with the law and
the administration thereof as relating
to the liquor traffio are devoutly to be
wished; but it is to be feared that
politicians, &c, in this province will
continue to ignore tho whole question
until foroeil to do their duty by the
united and consistent aotion of those
who profess to have these reforms at
heart.	
The Joawusirs.—You Republicans
need not build yourselves up and say
the Democratic party is the whiskey
party. You had absolute control of
the government for twenty-four years,
and when you left it the country was
drenched and doomed and damned
with liquor from Maine to California.
I am a mugwump, and the difference
between me and you is that are a jug-
wuinp.—Sam SnutU's airaVesj at Plat's-
burg. Mo.
The brewers of Pennsylvania have
formed an association to fight prohibition, and iu their call for a state
convention say: "Trade is placed in
■uch a position that wo must tight or
die." .

in Maine, Vermont, nnd Kansas.
A Creaking Hinge
It; dry and turns Lard, until oil is applied,
after which it moves easily. When the
joints, or hinges, of tho body are stiffened
and Inflamed by Rheumatism, they cannot ho moved without causing the most
excruciating pains. Ayer's SarsapariUa,
by its action on tho blood, relieves this
condition, and restores the joints to good
working order.
Ayer's SarsapariUa has effected, in our
oity, many most remarkable cures, in
cases which baffled the efforts of the
moat 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, ami all other diseases arising from
impure blood, there is no remedy with
which I am acquainted, that offorda such
relief as Ayor's SarsapariUa.—B. H.
Lawrence, lu. D., Baltimore, Md.
Ayer's SarsapariUa cured me of Gout
and Rheumatism, when nothing else
would. It has eradicated every trace of
disease from my system.—R. H. Short,
Manager Hotel Belmont, Lowell, Mass.
I was, during many months, a sufferer
from chronic Rheumatism. The disease
afflicted me grievously, in spite of all the
remedies I could find, until I commenced
using Ayer's SarBaparllla. I took 8t3V>

speedily restored to health.—J. Fream,

Tbe proper way to dust a room, bovb
- s writer In the Ne* York ■Mail mil* Ex-
p-rs; is to begin with the walls. Pin
Hi'vcr.it thicknesses of cloth over a broom
nml sireep the walls down thoroughly,
leiivinj; at tho same time sll the doors
an I windows open. This matter of
sweeping tho walls is important and
should lio done once a week in rooms
that aro much used. Then with a damp
cloth wipe olfthe picture cords or wires,
tlio bucks ol all the picture-frames, nnd
tbo topi of the door and window frames,
if thero is any danger of injuring pictures
or frames with'a damp cloth use a dry
one, but wipe them off carefully.
As often ss you can get a good draft
which will rcsrry the dust out ol the
window, shake and best the curtains,
whether they bo Holland, lace, scrim, or
whnt not, (of they aro prime sinners ln
thn matter ol harboring dust. The win-
ilow—sash, sill, and glass—should also
roiretvo attention. Uso a large cloth, with
half uf it W.llr dampened for dusting, tho
dry end being Useful to wipe off small
articles that might be injured by dampness-ami ba careful that yon manipulate
tbe cloth so ss to wipe tne dust into it
and keep it there. If it goto dirty have
a clean one, and always wash them out
mid scald them after using.
If thero are inside shutters to the windows they heed to be caned-for almost
as tenderly as a baby. A thorough
cleaning every week, carefully wiping
both upper and under sides of the slats,
is the only thing that will keep them in
decent order. A room Is not thoroughly
dusted uiitil all the lurnittre snd wood-
Work and gis fixtures have been cleaned
with tho dump duster. Upholstered furniture should he taken out, brushed all
over nn I then wiped with the dsinp cloth,
not lo getting the under side.

'ilia Wry to keep the bsby from becoming "spoiled" Is to let it cry as littlo as
ji.nMiiili). It will gain strength of mind
to endure its necessary ills all the sooner,
if it Is allowed to suffer as little as possible Irom ills -that can be avoided. Its
wants Bliould bo'anticipated; its sources
oi discomfort should be reifioved as soon,
as they arise, without waiting for it to
cry; it siio.il r bo prevented in evory way
from forming the habit of crying. (Study
its cxpre.isrun. When it is tired of play-
inri on th i Hour, take it up'and dance it
uliout tlio njjtu, and let it look out of the
win low for a few ininut'S. In a little
while it will bo glad to go bock und play
on tlu flonr luMin. if it Is utrtvssury to
r sri.t to discipline, be careful to seine
t tie riirlit moment for it. If you want the
lintry 11 learn to go to sltnrp without be-
inr,' rrrcke-i, choosenduy whon it has been
unusually bright and liapjiy all the morn-
inr;; wait until twenty minutes or so alter
the regular hour for its nap, then give it
a cup of milk, particularly swoet and
war-in nnd nitre, make its little bed soft
and cosy, hy it down gr'ntly and soothe
it with a little kissing and patting and
rf it is not already too much spoiled, it
w.ll Ire only too happy to close its eyes
iu the rrw.rcttwt kind of sleep. If it does
not, its Ills oi crying will be as brief snd
us Utile injuries us they can be.

A Painful Accident, — Mr. E.
Rand met with a vory painful, but not
dangerous, accident on Mackenzie
street last night. The street boing
very dark ho missed his footing on the
sidewalk and fell, receiving a number
of vory rpainful bruises, which has had
«..„ ..'J. ^ >---,r r.:a™f„„,n„
the houso .to-day. Mr. Rand exports
to be able to attend to business by
Monday.	
Movino a Sawmill.—There is some
talk of moving the sawmill now at
Semiahmoo to Elgin, Mud Bay. The
owners have made a proposition to the
residents of the municipality, whioh
has not been accepted yet, but a meeting will be held in the school house
next week to decide on what will bo
done about it. The prospects aro decidedly in favor of the mill being
removed.
 . . .	
A Fatal Slip.— A man named
John W. Martin, while waking along
the C. P. R. wharf at Vancouver, on
Thursday night, slipped and fell,
striking his head heavily on the flouring of the wharf. Dr. Beckingsale,
the port physician, was present ut the
time, and after an examination decided
he had sustained concussion of the
brain. Martin waa removed to his
his home, where he died yesterday
morning..
Having ii Out.—George Brown,
charged with being drunk and incapable, came before the "beak" this
morning, and was allowed to depart on
the payment of $2 and costs, and a
promise not to do it again. Brown is
evidently enjoying his spree very
much, for the matter of dollars und
cents don't seem to be taken into con-'
sideratiou by him. So far his little
outing has netted the police court
nearly $30, and the chances nre that
if Georgo does not return homo soon
the city coffers will be still farther
enriched.

Complaint from Donald.—At the
late assize court held at Donald by
Judge Crease, the grand jury made a
presentment in which the following
occurred; "The respectable inhabitants of this town and their families
are considerably annoyed and inconvenienced by the publicity of certain
matters connected with a certain portion of the female population, and the
inhabitants request through us the intervention of the authorities to investigate and mitigate the nuisance. Wo
request a duly appointed and permanent constable for both hore and also
one for Qolden City, for tho proper
maintenance of the peace."

I. O. O. F.—The 03rd annual session
of the sovereign grand lodge of the Independent Order of Oddfellows was
held at Denver lut month, when some
interesting statistics were presented.
During the year there has boon an increase of 12,990 members. At the beginning of the year the total membership of Ihe order was 548,523. In
Canada there aro about 20,000, of whom
700 are in this province. The reliof
expenditure in Canada last year was
863,000. The total expenditure of tho
order amounted to 85,059,772, and the
expenditure for relief was $2,227,324.
The Rebecca (limited to women) has
33,333 members, and expended in reliof the sum of $10,290. The income
cf this branch wu $225,593.
Joseph Ruaan, Porcy, writes: "I was
induced to try Dr. Thomas' Eclectrio Oil
tor a latneuess whioh troubled mc for
three or four years, and I found it tho
best article I ever used. It has been a
groat blessing to me." Frauds may imitate Dr. Thomu' Eclectric Oil in appear-
rrnoe and name, but in everything else
they aro dead failures.
An Enormous field.
Mr. Wm. Nicholls, of the Gold
Park farm, Son Island, wns in town
to-day, and before leaving showed us
a sample of hard wheat grown on his
farm. Last winter he brought from
the ■ eut 100 lbs. of this wheat and
sowed it in April. A week ago the
wheat wu threshed, and it was found
the 100 lbs. had yielded 8,400 lbs. or
140 bushels. This is a splendid yield
and only goes to show whst the land
along the Fraser is capable of.

Couldn't Be Excused.
The afternoon train for Vancouver
wns about to pull out yesterday when
Win. S. Skewes attempted to get on
board. But William wan out of luck
anil missed the train. Tho only tiling
that provonted him leaving was a
piece of paper in the shape of a capias
for $104, taken out at the instance of
Corbould & McColl. William said he
would like to bo ex-sliowes(d), but tho
fenial deputy sheriff, with his well-
nown urbanity of manner, said ho
had no doubt of it, but tho excuse
would not bo allowed, as tho Stkonu
Ahm of the law would prevent him.
Skowcs is an Englishman nnd eamo to
this city some months ago, nnd during
the time he has resided among us has
occupiod his timo between doing n littlo carpenter work and doing nothing,
generally tho lattor. Ho took upnrt-
monts in tho house of two ladies who
reside at tho eastern end of Columbia
streot, and after running up a number
of months' rent attempted to leave the
city without clearing off the score
Fortunately thero is a law to prevent
suoh outrages boing committed without punishment, and Skewes is now in
jail and will probably romain thore
until the debt is paid.
A Morning Dip.
This morning a most exasperating
accident happened to our follow townsman, Mr. George Grant, which though
not likely to prove fatal is still very
painful snd annoying. Mr. Grant has
a very lively inclination towards the
fair sex, among whom he is a great
favorite, and justly so, for George is a
very good looking follow indeed.
While standing on the bow of the snag
boat Samson, waiting to see the ferry
with its precious load pull oat, the
captain of the ferry called to hint to
move a boat that wu in the way.
Always alert and active Georgo
sprang forward, but unfortunately a
bright pair of eyes from the ferry were
watching him, and he knew it. The
thought flashed through his mind, as
he hurried aft to, have one look into
those eyes; the thought was father to
the deed, and George looked baok.
He saw the eyes, he caught the smile,
the moment was a happy one, but alas,
while the pleasure ran highest his
shoulder caught a post, there was a
sudden shook, a recoil and the cold
waters ofthe Fraser dosed over him.
Like Lot's wife he looked back and
came to grief, Mr. Grant is a powerful swimmer and he wu soon ashore
again, much to the joy of his many
friends who were all glad to see that
notwithstanding the accident his smile
shone out as bright as ever.
Persons or Sedkxtary Habits, the
greater part of whoso time Is passed at

Jabcsh Snow, Gunning Cove, N. is.,
writes: "I was completely prostrated
with tlio asthma, but hearing of Dr.
Thomas' Kclectric Oil, I procured a hot-
tic, mid it done me so much good that I
got another, uud before it wu used, I
was well. My son wu cured of a bad
cold by tiro use of half a bottle. It goes
like wild-lire, and mokes cures wherever
it is used."
