Blaise's Health Rablls,
According to the New York World,
J. G. Blaine owes to two simple
habits of life the excellent health
which has enabled him to do probably more work than other publio
men in the Uuited States now living. Here is what Mr. Blaine says
about himself as regards his mode of
life: "Well, I have a very strong
constitution, and, more than that, I
have taken great care of myself. I
believe I owe a great deal to this.
For instance, I have always been
oareful to keep my feet dry. I bave
no bad habits, and was never addicted to the use of stimulants. I
do not smoke or use tobaoeo in any
form'; in fact, I never had a piece
of tobacco in my mouth. I never
took stimulants. Never waa in the
habit of taking a glass of liquor,
even occasionally, I do not know
tho taste of rum, whiskey or brandy."

General Von Moltke, in an interview with u New York Herald correspondent, said: "I hare always
regarded General, Grant, Sherman
and Lee ae the representative types
of the highest form of modern strategists, but General Sherman struck
mens the type of a thoroughly
American general, with all the wonderful energy and fertility of resources that charoterize the nation,
and probably no better cavalry commander has over taken the field. He
was it past-master in using horses
for all they were worth, and all the
armies of Europe hare adopted
many of the lessons taught by him
in the Uuticiil use of cavalry."
The Garden of Eden, it is now asserted, wu located in Central
America. Mme. Alice le Plougenn,
wife of an eminent man of science,
is the prophet of the new belief, anil
she claims to hare found writings
which give tho whole history uf the
human race, showing that America
and Europe were then united by
land which has since been submerged.
The story runs that kissing wus
introduced into England by Rowens,
the daughter of Hengist, the Saxon.
At iv banquet which was given by
thii britisli monarch in honuor of
his all.es, the princess, after pressing
the brimming beaker to her lips, sain ten and astonished the delighted
Volt'gem with a little kiss, after the
mar nor of her own people.

, BLAINE  SATISFIED.
Linlithgow, Scotland, June 26.—-The
news of the nomination of General Ben
Harrison, of Indiana, for president of the
U.S., by the Jtepiibiicou national convention at Chicago, yesterday, was received here at nine o'clock last night.
When the telegram announcing Harrison's nomination on the 8th ballot was
handed to Mr. Blaine he cheerfully said,
"A good nomination," and, turning to
Mr. Carnegie, who was present, asked
"What do you think of itf' " 'Tis good,
just what I expected" replied Mr. Carnegie. Mre. Blaine felt pleased that
Harrison had been selected ont of all the
Republicans, she said, "I am glad it Ib
over. I know Harrison is a good man.
He conies of a line family. He has a
very good record as a publio man; I
would like to have seen Mr. Blaine
nominated if it could have been done
unanimously, but not otherwise. Mr.
Blaine did not desire to be a candidate."
Shortly after the receipt of the news a
message of congratulation, written in a
hearty spirit, was dashed off by Mr,
Blaine and cabled to the nominee. Mr.
Blaine thought it would not be civil to
Mr. Harrison to give out this telegram
from this Bide, knowing full well it would
be promptly given out for publication
upon its arrival. Mr. Blaine' did not
care to add anything to his first praise
of the good nomination.

rolling round and, as usual, those whose
duty it is to see to publio works are
"napping." It is now near the last days
of June aud little or no preparation is
mado for road work in this township. I
had occasion to travel on the Scott road
a few days ago. The alders along tbe
way grow so fast and so dense that, although cut down two years ago, they are
now so thick and tall that It is almost
impossible to travel over the road. The
ditches and culverts are all doted up,
aud should the road not be put in proper
repair this season it will be impossible
for man or beast (exoept perhaps bears
or panthers) to thread their way on thu
muoh needed but muoh neglected inter-
township thoroughfare. This is the
shortest and best route between Westminster and Whatcom; two stage lines
travel this road to the boundary line, -
and it is a great pity that the government wonld not take a little interest in
a government road like this, and keep tt
in repair. It was builfi by the government as a trunk road and should be kept
up by the government. It should be
opened the full width and properly
ditched and culverted. It is no use for
Westminster people to talk about rail:
roads and a bridgo across the river if tbe
main trunk toad leading to the river is
allowed to lapse. There seems to he
Bcmcthing terribly wrong in the management of roads since the townships
wore organized. There seems to be a
misunderstanding between the government and the municipalities. Instead of
the government giving the municipalities
a cortain sum yearly, to be spent on road
work, the government should spend the
money itself, where it would accommodate the public most. The townships of
Surrey and Delta spend the most of the
publio money in certain favored localities;
and neglecting tho general publio inter-
ests. I noticed, in going to town the
other day, that the ferry wharf at
Brownsville is all broken up. That miserable piece of stupid engineering coat
our council 9700. The money might as .
well have been thrown in the river. The
proper placo for the ferry lauding is between the public wharf and the old
Brown wharf, where there could be ft
long, easy incline, protected on both
sides, from ice in winter and floating de-
debris in summer. The old slaughterhouse and other troublesome buildings
that stand on tho roadway should be
ordered off by tho government and a new
ferry slip built at onoe. It is no uso to
wait for tho railway bridge, for that will
not be built in ft day. If Westminster
wished to retain the trado of the soutli
side of the river she must wake up, aud
as soon as tho first low strge of water
tho ferry landings on both sides of the
river must be put in good shape. Enough
money has already been wasted to have
equipped a flrst-olass ferry service, but.
heretofore it has been nothing but bungling. FARMER.

Novel writing would appear to be
getting run down as a pecuniary
enterprise. Julian.Hawthorne, writing to the new Hel/ord'e Uatjia'me,
of American novelists and their
pecuniary gains from works pub
fished in 'book form, says: " Five
hundred dollars a year for a successful novel I How many of our
authors make twice that! How
many ten times as much'I How
many twenty times ns much! I
will engage to entertain at dinner,
at a round table five feet in diameter, all the Amerioan novelists who
make more than a thousand dollars
out of the royalty on any one of
their novels, and to give them all
they want to cat and drink, and
three of the best cigars apiece afterward and a hack to take tliom homo
in; and I will agree to forfeit a
thousand dollars to the Homo for
Imbeciles if $25 docs not liquidate
the bill and leavo enough over to
buy a cloth copy of each of tho
works in question, with tho author's
autograph on the flyleaf. One hack
would bo sutticiont, und would allow
of tlieir putting up thoir feot on tho
seat in front of them."
From all accounts the new German emperor, William II., promises
to disappoint those who have been
prophesying that he would put on
the war paint and disinter the sanguinary tomahawk. If his reiterated
protestations are to be accepted—
and we do not see why his word
should not be taken until he has falsified it—he has the most paoific intentions. As he says himself, his
policy aims solely toward off attack,
not to attain military glory. Tho
empire, he declares, denires peace
with all nations. But, unfortunately for tne young man—although,
perhaps, a knowledge of the fact will
not keep bim awake at nights—a
large contingent of the Canadian
and American press do not believe
him; they say practically thut they
know better—that they " can see
blood in bis eye." The following is
from a prominent Canadian journal:
"There is no disguising the fact
that the gravest fears for the future
of Germany are entertained by those
who know best the character of the
successor to the throne. The young
Prince William is of a temperament
wholly different from that of either
his father or bis grandfather. They
were all for peace; he, it is said, is
all for war. He recently denied, it
is true, that he had any desire to
needlessly involve his country in
trouble with foreign powers; but
those who know him do not feel re-
assured by this statement, nor do
they place much confidence in his
ability to curb his warlike propensities. Their one ground of hope
lies in Bismarck. Should the young
emperor allow himself to be guided
by the great chancellor, there will
be little danger to Germany so long
as the latter remains on the scene;
otherwise, the prospect is one which
may well alarm not only Germany,
but tbe whole of Europe The situation is a critical one."
with great despatch. Timber for
sleepers and ties is convenient at
hand also. In placo of the wagon
road up Lulu Island, with a bridge
across the North Arm at tliis city,
as suggested by a correspondent recently, a rail traok i might nob be a
bid idea, and on tho perfectly level
land of the island it could be laid
very cheaply. Probably in the long
run such a road would be cheaper
than a wagon road, and it would
certainly bo more effective. By this
means if the business were properly
managed the whole of the products
of the island and of the North Arm
could bo marketed at a nominal oost
to tke farmers. Some enterprising
individual or firm would build storehouses uud elevators convenient to
the bridge whicli could be easily
thrown across the narrow and shallow channel ut the head of the island,
somewhere oppositothcO.P.It. depot.
Then, with the prospective bridge
across tho Frasor opposite this city
to Brownsville, affording passage for
the various lines converging there,
the products of nil the districts south
of the river will find ready access to
their natural niarkot—Westminster
—and largo elevators and storehouses will spring up near this
bridgo also. Tlie foregoing nro enterprises thut can lie taken hold of
by joint stock companies, assisted
by the various townships and also
by the corporation of Westminster,
and to a certain extent by the provincial government. The sooner
Westminster turns her attention to
these and other local enterprises that
she can very well afford to assist the
better. There should be no time
wasted waiting for something to
turn up; but, by thorough ventilation and intelligent discussion, we
should decide whateoheme3 we wont
to assist, what new industries we
are prepared to aid or establish, and
.then let us borrow the necessary
money, as other enterprising cities
have done and are doing, to enable
us to set the wheels going, and it
will not bo long before all such well-
judged and reproductive outlay will
bring its own reward.

Railroads are the order of the
day, and wagon, roads must take a
back seat. In addition to the
Westminster-Southern, from this
city to the boundary line direct, it is
possible that we may have a line
from Ladners to Oheam, near Hope,
which would open up a large portion
of the district south of the Fraser
and furnish easy and convenient
transportation for its produots in
any direction. It is almost certain
that but a short time will elapse before we shall have another and far
mora direct and shorter line to Vancouver. We refer to ther extension
of the Westminster branch to that
place, whioh it has beeu known for
aome time that it was the intention
of the C. P. B. to build. This line,
whioh wonld form a kind of loop in
connection with the existing line,
would put Westminster on the main
road and bring us within fifteen or
twenty minutes of Vancouver,
whereas by the present route we are
something over an hour. Other
lines, too, are talked of, and tbe
more tha merrier, we say. Westminster should not be backward
about encouraging and assisting all
schemes tending to the establishment
of good and easy means of communication between this city and the
outlying districts in every direction.
Vanoouver thoroughly appreciates
the wisdom of sueh a policy, and is
already proving her faith by her
works. We must not be behind our
enterprising sister in this respect
Among the railway schemes talked
of, we would mention, as deserving
of notice and consideration, a short
line from opposite Westminster to
Ladner's Landing. This proposed
line would open up and give access
to t large tract of land lying between
these two points, whioh is at present,
to a Urge .extent unproductive because of the want of communication.
A wagon road has often been talked
of, bnt now that railroads are the
order of the day, a rail track could
perhaps be moreeasily laid and kept
in repair than a wagon road, as the
land, we understand, is low and
level torthegrester.partot the way.

The Wonderf ol Plant That Travelers Sea j
a :_     on the Hants ot the Historic Mile,   -4
* Travelers in Egypt, who profess to hnvo
seen the genuine resurrection floiver, describe it as a littlo ball hanging on its
fragile stem, and resembling both In
color and Bhape a shrunken poppy bead.
[ Sleeping, bnt not dead, the flower is
[ aroused by being for an instant immersed
! In water, and then supported in an up-
I right position,
Soon the upper fibres begin to stir.
f Slowly, yet visibly, they unfold until,
1* with petals thrown back iu an equidistant
1 order, it assumes the appearance of a
t beautifully radiated, starry flower, not
r unlike some of the asters in form. Rest-
,' Ing a moment, it suddenly, na though inspired by some new impulse, throws ita
very heart to the daylight, curving back
its petals further still, and disclosing
beauties undreamed of even iu the loveliness of its first awakening.
(Soon the aspect of the flower changes.
As thongh over the wellspviug of its eternal life hangs some ruthless power forcing It baok into darkness; before an hour
bas passed its newly found vigoris fading
away. Tho pulsing light at its heart
grows fainter aud fainter—slowly the
I-   petals raise themselves, to drop wearily
side by side upon its bosom—and flnally,
its  beauty vanished, its  strength  exhausted, it hangs heavy and brown upon
'    its stem, waiting for the touch that alone
, can waken it again.
9     The story of the reBSurrectlon flower, as
9 given ln 1656 bythe late Dr. Deck, the
I   naturalist, Is as follows:
I    "While traveling on a professional tour
1 in Upper Egypt eight years before, en-
■ gaged in exploring for some lost emerald
and copper mines, he chanced to render
medical service to an Arab-attached to.
his party. In gratitude the child of the
desert formally presented to him this
now-called 'resurrection flower,' at the
samo time enjoining him never to part
with it. Like the fublsd gift of the Egyptian, it was supposed to. have'maglo In.
the web of It.'"
A, The Doctor was solemnly assured bythe
ft Arab and others of his race tlmt it had
2 heen taken ten years beforo from tbo
f* breast of an. Egyptian mummy, n high
J priestess, and wis deemed a great variety;
I that it would never decay if properly
I cared for; that its possession through life
A would tend to revive hope in adversity.
'! For years tho Doctor curried liistrcus-
1 uro with him everywhere, prizing it for
_\. its intrinsic qualities, and invariably
w* awakening the dee'pest interest whenever
V lie chanced "to display its womlrmis pow-
■ j era.   During the remainder of liis life, it
is claimed, he caused tho flower to open
^T****1 many times, witlin.il. causing aiiytliiuluu-
tlon of Its marvelous property or auy injury whatever to it.—London News.

SI   Origin of "Counting Out" Rhymes,
I hold that "counting ont" is a survival.,
of the practice of the sorcerer, using this
word in its restricted and etymological
meaning; and that the spoken and written
1 -harms originally used to enforce priestly
power have become adjuncts to these
puerile games, and the basis of. counting
out doggerels.
L.    Tbe idea that European and American
eliildren engaged in "counting out" for
1  gi<mes are repeating in innocent ignor-
{'maiice the practices and language of a sor-
Eicerur of a dark age is perhaps startling,
faji mt can be shown to have a high degree
pf probability.
Tbe leader, III counting out, performs
Sm incantation, but the ohildren grouped
■iround him are free from that awe ahd
iiuper.stltiou* reverence that character-
>ed tho procedure in its earlier state,—

. This being a holiday Wee^writes'aCanadian gentleman from tho city of Mexico,
the Zocals, tho grand square or plaza, in
(rout of tho graud Mexican Cathedral, Is
just crowded with Indians,-who bave the
queerest lot of things to sell I have ever
Been. Every now and then there is a new
feast, and at each new feast, tbe Indians
bring out new toys, or new Gets of toys,
entirely different from what tbey have
had for sale at previous feasts.
The feasts last for two or threo days
generally, sometimes a week, and they
always have a great many more toys than
they ean possibly sell.
But as soon as the feast Ib over the toys
disappear, and they do not bring them
out again until tho same feast occurs the
following year, when tbey ngnln have the
particular toys for that particular feast
for sale, nnd yet they do pot look shelf
worn whon they bring tliem out but look
quite new, nnd when you remember that
these Indians live in liou.ies generally, huddled together like Chinese, you
will wonder where they keep these things
in the meantime. I have been unable to
find anyone who knows.
At the present feast they sell toys that
have a little handle which turns them
around or on which they turn around,
that is the toy turns around,'and as it
turns It makes a liniao something like a
northern baby's rattle box. These toys
are got up in. all sliapes and forms, but
every ono of them has this turning apparatus. A
Some aro little boys sitting ln little
wagons, with a stick or handle fastened
to the bottom of the wagon which by
turning in the band causes the wagon to
turn around and make the particular
noise referred to! above; or perhaps they
will have the reprcsentiitinn'of a bull
fight and this being on 11 liUlo platform
is turned around in a similar maimer.!
There is every.kii.d of toy you could
think of and a great many you could not
think of, but all with oue exception have
this particular power of being turned and
of making the queer noise as they revolve.
The scene on the plaza to-day Ia very
funny. Such a queer noise as all these
little toys revolve nud such odd cries
from the many Indians. To-morrow at
ten o'clock they will burn Judas. This is
a thing they do every year after Oood
Friday.
For tbe last two or threo days In addition to tbe toys which I have described
they have been selling lai^o und small
representations of Jmhut Ificurli-'t, 1 ffon't

Judas did or notbut they iiluiu.-1 .ill look

Judasesare made nl" inwti'b'nard or boiiio

o'clock they wi libit m them.
But tliu great Thin (j of tbe morning will
be the burning of .Iidas in cfligy by tbe
ohurch itself. This they will do from tlie
great Cathedral, on top of which will be
placed an enormous representation of
Judas, which will be filled with'boots,
clothes and other things. They will set

Our citizens should give the Hyacks
every encouragement in their practices

Ordination at Vancouver.
The Presbytery of Columbia met at

been appointed to a miuion station,
under the auspices of the Presbyterian,
church, situate on the Fraser river
somewhere between Langley and Chilliwhack, and comprising among others
the settlements of Mt. Lehman, Alder-
grove and Riverside. For the information of our readers we might add that
Mr. H. R. FrMer ia the third of that
surname in thia province who are ministers of the Presbyterian ohuroh.
There are quite a number of tho same
name here also, who do not belong to
the ministry. The Fraacrs all seem to
flow this way.
Ike Hleks-Sawyer Minstrels.      .(H
These famed minstrels seem to meot
with general approbation wherever
they go. To-morrow night they appear in Herring'a Opera Houso, and,
judging from the number of seats already sold, a large house will greet
them. Last night they played in Vancouver and this il what the News-Advertiser haa tu lay: "Last evening the
Hicks-Sawyer Minstrels made their
bows to one of the largest audiences
ever assembled in Hsrt s Opera House,
and right well did they sustain the
reputation that preceded them.
Whether in their singing, which possessed tho weird, rhythmic music of
the negro race to perfection, or in
their comedy pieces they were alike
excellent. Some of the cleverest acrobatic feats ever seen wero produced
by the Connor brothers, while Stove
Martin aud bis banjo, of which he is a
master, kept the audience in roars of
laughter. Tho concluding faroe, the
lilaokville Duel wu very amusing and
brought the house down."

Before the closing of the grand lodge
yesterdsy it was stated that as Union
iodge had dedicated to muoiiry snch a
magnificent temple in this eity it was
desirable that some tangible proof nf
the grand lodge's appreciation of this
noble work should be given, and as
Bro. B. Douglas, one of the trustees
of the building and one who hnd taken
a very active and important part in the
completion of the work, was not a
member of the grand lodge he was selected for thia mark of distinction, and
in accordance with a section of the constitution which reads ss follows:
"Brethrenof eminence and ability,
who have rendered service to the craft,
may, by a vote of the grand lodge,
duly confirmed, be constituted mombers of the grand lodge, with suoh rsnk
and distinction as may be thought proper," wu constituted a member of
grand lodge with the rank of P. Grand
Treasurer. We offer our congratulations to Very Worshipful Bro. Doughs and hope he will long be spared to
onjoy tho honors so well deserved.

exceedingly well and sings a song with
good effect. Miss Etta Bairnsfather's
singing was thoroughly appreciated by
the audience. She hu a rich and
sweet soprano voice, with plenty of
compass, which she uses with much
fueling and effect. Miss Maggie and
Master Jhon, in kilted costumes, danced several steps of the Highland fling
with muoh grace and vigor. The
different lungs and stories were heartily applauded, and, in many instances
encored. Mr. J. S. Fraser rendered
somo excellont scle-rtions ou the bagpipes.
At the conclusion of the programme
Mr. Bairnsfather announced that ho
and the other members of the family
would give their services, free, for another concert in sid of the public library. This kind offer wss received
with muoh applause, u everyone present knew that that deserving institution wu greatly in need of financial assistance. The Bairnsfatliers will be
assisted by Capt. Gordon, of the ship
Camana, who sings a capital Scotch
soug, and Mr. Fraser will be present
and enliven tho proceedings with some
selections on tho bagpipes. We hope
tho concert will bo largely patronized
this evening, as the cause in which it
is given could not be more worthy of
support, __

WHO IS   IT ?
London, June 24. —The intelligence
from Suakim recently that a white
puha had made his appearance in
Buto El Gazele provinces with a large
forco of men has givsn rise to endless
speculation in England. It is suggested by somo who have nevor been convinced of the death of Geueral Gordun
that that officer has escaped from
Khartoum, and that the white pasha
causing io much anxiety is he, Gordon.
Others are inclined to believed that it
is Edmond O'Donovan, the famous
war correspondent of the London
Daily Neva, who is generally supposed
to have perished with the ill fated expedition of General Hicks, or that
possibly some member of Puaha Hick's
force who hu been kept in confinement by the natives, and who haa now
escaped, is the new found puha. Still
another and perhaps a mire plausible
explanation of the oxistence of this
while man is that Stunley hu joined
Emin Boy aud that together theso explorers are forcing their way westward.
Further news of this mystical personage is awaited with Ihe greatest interest, Letters received from Herbert
Ward, who has been with Major Bar-
tellot, who ii now on hie way home,
itate that there hu been fearful Buffering among all uf Major Bartellot's
force, and at one time they were near
death'i door on account of the losrcity
of provisions; 60 men, Ward uys, actually did starve.
