Unity Kr.alug, Jaiaary M, law.
The Dominion ministry seem to
be justified in their prediction that
there will be surplus of revenue for
the fiscal year ending June 31st,
1887. The! returns of customs receipts for the port of Montreal
for the last six months show a
large increase in each month as compared with the corresponding period
of the last fiscal year. The total
receipts for the half yoar are $4,-
526,116.76, an increase of $1,009,-
609.70 over the first half of the
fiscal year of 1885-86, Increased
importations without any radical
ohange in the tariff may be regarded
as an indication of increased pros
perity, Montreal being the metropolis of the Dominion the returns
for this port serve as an indicator
of the trade of the whole country.
—Montreal Star.
"I hope that Ood may paralyze
me," were the words spoken by William Burklett, of Douglas, Georgia,
At once his hands dropped to his side,
his legs refused to move, and his
eyes rolled wildly around. His
prayer was answered, as he stood
paralysed on tho spot where but a
few moments before he was a magnificent type of physical manhood.
He tried to speak, but his tongue
would not move. Half a dozen men
who were present were rendered
motionless by tho evident visitation
of the hand of God. When they recovered self-possession they tenderly
moved the afflicted man to his residence, a half mile distant. When
Miss Rhody Burklett saw the plight
in whieh her father was brought
home she screamed and fainted, and
died soon after.—Louisville Courier-
Journal.
If any one has an idea that the
dumb animals of the farm do not
very quiokly learn the peculiarities
of voice and-'gestwe■• of every person who frequents the yards or
stable, he may as well disabuse his
mind of this belief. Animals discern the intent and temper of other
animals as far as they can see the
expression of the eye, and in the
cose of hones, as far aa the position
of the head and ear oan be detected.
Thus, if a horse moves toward another horse, or for that matter toward a cattle beast, or a pig, with
head extended and ears thrown
baok, the- animal approached needs
no other warning than this to indues it to move out of the way.
This may be called mere instinct or
not, yet it is more tban instinct, for
this is defined by Webster as being
an "unconscious, involuntary, unreasoning prompting to action."
Whaley says "on instinct is a pro-
Ssnsity prior to experience, and in-
epenaent of instruction." Now,
in the case of farm animals, the
agproaohing toward or the retreating from another animal or person
is, in every instunoe, something, the
necessity or propriety of doing
which is learned by experience. Instinct need out no figure in the matter, beoause all animals are fully
competent to discover the tone and
temper of persons after a brief acquaintance with them,—National
List Stock Journal.
The result of the municipal
election at Toronto, Ont, the most
American of Canadian oities, affords
a lesson and suggests a moral which
all would do well to heed, Mayor
Howland's administration had been
distinguished by a rigid enforcement of the laws, ineluding those
for tbe regulation of the liquor
traffic and the suppression of gam
bling and disorderly houses. He
was a candidate for re-election, and
the elements of municipal society
whioh resented his interference with
their "liberties" united in supporting the opposition candidate, Mr.
Blain. The liquor influence was
exceptionally active against Mayor
Howland, aud conducted the warfare against him. On election day
everything seemed to be running in
favor of Blain, and his election was
confidently expected, But when
the ballots were counted it was
found that Howland had a majority of 2,336, having carried every
ward In the oity excopt twa The
issue between law and ordor on the
one hand and unbridled lieense on
the other had been so clearly defined as to wipe out party lines to a
great extent, and lead the better
part of the ooiumunity to quietly
support the laW and order mayor,
The noise and bluster were on the
one side, but the majority of votes
were on the other. The lesson to
be learned from this is that a law
and order triumph is practically
assured in any municipal election
if the opposition to law and order
will only make the issue prominent
enough and so clear as not to be
misuser**** ~ fftoafma' Leadtr.

Those who contemplate plunging
Europe into war during the present
yeav will incur fearful responsibility. Europe may be described us
an armed camp whero millions of
trained soldiers with the most approved engines of destruction are
waiting for a signal to fly at each
other. 'A war under such conditions must necessarily be attended
with terrible destruction of human
life. But powder and steel will not
bo the only agents of death in such
a conflict. The seeds of cholera,
that fell destroyer, are lurking in
several of the European countries,
and whenever the conditions become
favorable- these seeds will surely
germinate and produce an extensive
crop of death. There are no circumstances, perhaps, so favorable to
the ravages of this disease as a stato
of war, and if it once gains a hold
on the European battlefield the result will be appalling. There is
danger also that this destroyer may
visit our own country during the
coming' summer1.-';-It has been at,
work all winter in Ohili, carrying,
off thousands' of. victims, and unless
the quarantine is enforced against
it with rigor, it will be almost sure
to come' from Ohili through the
United States to Canada. If it
should happen to break out in Europe and America, and if at the
same time a great European war
should occur, the devastation and
death will be "something awful to
contemplate.
In its newborn independence tho
Toronto Mail goes for the monopoly
clause in the 0. F. R, agreement.
After quoting certain statements
frou. the Winnipeg Sun, it re
marks: "The Dominion government should lose no time in repealing the monopoly' clause, or rather
in persuading the Canadian Pacific
to consent to its repeal. When the
only outside railway men in sight
in the Northwest were speculators
who projected competing lines in
the hope of boing able to blackmail
the syndicate monopoly, the clause
served a good purpose. It served a
purpose, too, prior to the construction of thb Lake Superior division,
when the all-rail Canadian route
was still in the clouds, and when,
consequently, the diversion of trade
of the prairie section into Ameri
can channels by means of lines running south from Winnipeg might
have been a blow at the future of
the undertaking, as well as injustice to the taxpayers of Ontario
and Quebec. But now that these
conditions have ceased to be, the
monopoly clause is nothing more
than a shield and protection for the
rates of the St" Paul, Minneapolis
and Manitoba road, which dominates
American territory south of Manitoba, and has the reputation of being
a hard taskmaster. If the Manitoba people are wise they will make
this the test question" at the Dominion elections. In old Canada we
secure favors from the government
of the day by putting a pistol to its
head when it is in the act of appealing to the country. Strictly speaking, the operation is not defensible;
but we do not see why Manitoba
should not resort to it in order to
secure fair-play, other means having
failed." One cannot help regretting
that the Mail was not able to see
these things long ago.
It was stated in our despatches
the other day that the pope had
made arrangements to remove his
residonce from Borne to Monaco in
the event of the development of
additional hostility towards him by
the Italian government. In the
event of such a transfer, tho head
of the Roman church would occupy
the smallest kingdom in the world.
Monaco is situated ou tho Mediterranean, about nine miles east of
Nice, and is noted for the beauty of
its situation .and surroundings, and
the charni of its climate. In these
respects it would be a most happy
location for his holiness. But there
are other.respects in which Monaco
is more widely known. It is the
■eat of one of {he biggest and
wealthiest' gambling companies in
the world. The whole kingdom
embraces an area of about eight
square miles and a population of
8,000 persons, and yet it has a constitutional • prince who rules it with
MimmiiN ■ Hitmitv. and   who  has  a
pompous 'dignity, and who has a
magnificent palace, with forts, and
cannon; and an army which num
bers leu than 100 men. This little
empire has no taxes, because the
French; gambling company, which
holds ita license from the prince,
pays all the national expenses, and
provides moat liberally for tho prince
and his household, in consideration
of receiving permission to carry on
its horrible business. Thousand! of
wealthy people frequent the gamb
ling tables of Monaco, and hundreds
of them are every year ruined by
the infatuation. Driven to desperation, many of these ruined mortals
haw committed suicide, until the
Gat gambling outrages of Monaco
re b-coWte a reproach and a scandal orer the ei-iUxed world. The
gambling oompany of Monaco has
JToaplUlof 18,000,000 franos, and
oUsfcrtsto interfere with its operations haw «• *•*•* be*n MtUss.

of Grip shows how well this fact Is appro*
olated—Us Cartoons on tho passing political events of tbo country boing oven
more eagerly sought after thnn tlio chaste
and humorous letter-press of thc paper,—
though the latter Is equal lo I imi of nny

To the Electors of the District of
mew Westminster.
GENTI,EMEN.-In offering myself lo
tho District of Westminster to represent
you In the Commons this coming opening of the Houso, I do bo ln nil sincerity,
believing that I can do more for your Interests than nny of the gentlemen that
havecomc forwards" far. Inm a thorough
Conservative nnd In entire sympathy
with tho present government, who have
ftroved themselves the friend In need and
n deed to British Columbia.
Gentlemen, I hnvo my private feelings
nnd opinions on most of the question!, of
tbo dny, but if I go to the House by your
sanction to represent you, I shall submit
to your commands and directions which
you can send mo as tlio different- questions
of tho dny present themselves nnd as circumstances. Interests and opinions change
on the spot, tii ho represented; for I hold
that in going to parliament by your voto
aud pleasure, I go as your trusted agent
and not as your lord and master, as somo
havo thought and noted accordingly when
out of your reach.
Temperance, gentlomen, fs one of the
questions tlmt troublo tho district at the
present I Mm*. Now, gentlemen, when tbo
right time arrives for us to receive prohibition nono will he found to work for thnt
measure with moro sincerity or energy
than I, nml no government on earth will
bo moro happy togrant that measure than
they; but the time has not nrrived yet, I
am sorry to say, and I sny further, that
tho timo for prohibition entirely rests
with the temperance people themselves,
for as soon as tbey provo their sincerity in
tbe cause by petitioning parliaments put
a tax on tea, coffee nnd other articles, und
on Income If necessary, thereby providing
revenue to carry on the government, then
and then only enn they succeed In their
cause, then nnd thon only can the government comply with thoir wishes. Money
Is tho root or all evil, so parsons tell us,
and money is tlie mighty lover tbat Is going to lift you into that haven of temperance you all so desire and dream of.
Gentlemen, I fully realize the importance of your selecting n good and proper
man to represent you at Ottawa, and I also
fully realize tin* fuel that I also great dlstanco am working to n great disadvantage; but, gentlemen, I trust lu your Intelligence uml to tho friendship of my old
friends, nnd feel satisfied you will do justice to yourselves who aro to be benefitted
or injured by your selection.
In conclusion, gentlemen, I undertake
to servo you sincerely und faithfully ln
nil things If scut to tho Commons lo represent you there, nnd If you tin not I can
stop nt home, help ynu when I can, ami
(sincerely wish you may be us well served
us I would like to serve you myself
Gentlemen, you can givo tno my answer
at tho polls, and whether I go or stay I
shnll always remain
Yours truly nhd sincerely,

Police Court.
Four cases required the magistrate's
attention at the police court this
morning. Jug and Wung Hung, two
Chinese, were oharged with selling
liquor to an Indian, The prisoners
stated that the Indian had lain about
their cnnip yesterday, firing their
New Year. celebration, and begged
for whiskey, and they, to quiet him,
had given him some of their aweet
wine. The magistrate discharged
thein with costs. An Indian named
" Charlie" was charged with' being
found drunk in a Ohinese camp by
Oflicer McBroom. The prisoner wss
lined (5 and (2 costs,or ill default one
week in jail. He chose the latter alternative. Four Ohinamen were
brought up charged with being implicated iu tire recent theft of cloth at
the penitentiary. There being insufficient evidence to substantiate the
charge, the magistrate dismissed them.
William Kirk, a brakeman on the 0,
P. R., was oharged by Frank Devlin,
detective on the C. P. R., with stealing a rubber coat belonging to one
Van Norman, at Port Hammond. It
appeared that the prisoner, on his
trip up from Port Moody, had gone
into the station houae at Port Hammond, aud, seeing the coat lying
there, had put it on to protect him
from the rain and anow, intending to
return it on his return trip. He was
admonished not to do so again, and
was dismissed. The last case being a
charge of larceny, Sheriff Armstrong
took a seat on the judicial bench.

Prr jw Despatches.
Niagara, Fallh, Ont., Jan. 23.—A
sewer, a quarter of a mile in length, run
liing under this town, forms pnrt of the
bed of a muddy creek, which, during
thawi In winter, is swollen into a rushing river of large volume, which empties
into the Niagara river over the precipice
near the whirlpool rapids. This river
waa running fifteen miles an hour last
evening when Bertha Farrell, aged four
yean, who waa seated on a band sled,
slid into it. Her sister Blanche, aged 10,
jumped In after her and both were swept
Into the sewer. A rush was made for
the other end of thu sewer and men, se*
cured by ropes, jumped Into the water
and waited for the children to appear.
Bertha come firat, under water, and
Blanche followed on top. When taken
out both were apparently lifeless, but
after much difficulty they were resuscitated, The children were in the water
about ten minutes, moat of the time submerged.
lokdon, Jan. 24.—-Right Hon. Henry
Campbell Bannerman, Liberal member of
fiarliament and' formerly chief secretary
or Ireland, In a speech at Calrou, near
Inverkathing on Saturday, aaid he believed when home rule waa granted to
Ireland Parnell would bo the Conservative leader in the Irish parliament, supported by the government aud the landlords. While Parnell waa leader, the
present adjutants would lead the opposition.
Vibk-na, Jan. 24.—The rulea governing the landaturn, which have just been
Snblished, show that nothing exeept
Undness, deafness, and dumbness will
exoept men from service, and that drafts
from Cudtatrum will be uaed to fill up
the gapa in the regular army and navy
reserves. The new rulea have rather
surprised the country, auoh sweeping,
stringent contingent not having been expected.
New York, Jan. 24.—Thero was a
demonstration in Madison Square Oarden to night in compliment to Michael
Davitt and his wife. Nearly 10,000
persons were present. Patrick Ford
presided. When Davitt was presented
the people made a vast deal of cheering.
When T. V, Powderly wus recognized
there waa not a littlo cheering, as also
when Henry George waa seen in the
crowd, Letters of regret were received
from Senator Sawyer nf Wisconsin, Sen*
ator Dawes of Massachusetts, Senator
Vance and Senator Mandcrson of No
braaka, Sowell of New Jersey, Aldrich
of Rhode Island, Sabin of Minnesota,and
Congressmen Cutchern. of Michigan,
Johnson of Indiana, Lyman of Iowa, and
White of Pennsylvania. Davitt at the
outset ehoae to construe the demonstration not only aa a greeting to him but
also aa a token of encouragement to
Erin and of defiance to her enemies. He
then adverted to the Irish question
abroad and said the fight on tho land
question was on onoe more. He oould
not picture the inhumanities being car*
lied on by the British crown. For hia
part he would have regarded aa justifiable homicides any shooting by the people
ofGlencoeand Olenbayof thc bailiffs
who outraged tlieir bouses. (Wild
cheers.) That tho Glencno people lot
the bailiffs escape alive waa evidence of
the law-abiding character ot the race.
And the sneaker wanted to and did confess to-night that he la, in a measure, re*
aponalble for the passive attitude of the
Irish at home. Davitt believed it unwise to oppose an undisciplined force
against a disciplined powor; that would
mean sure defeat. He thought the Tory
government meant war tu extermination,
and let thia polioy become known and
all the wisdom of the conservative lead-
era could not avort aome supreme act of
retaliation. But before Midi a consummation ahall have been reached tho common sense of Englishmen will liave asserted Itself. Attontion grew intense
when Mr, Davitt at length saidi "I
now wish to refer to a mutter uot only
of interest to me and my friends, but to
the entire oity of New York. [Voice—
"Three cheers for tho   poor    man's
friends."] I cannot well pass over in
silence the case of iny friend Father
McGlynn. Bat in what I am about to
Bay I will endeavor to carefully avoid the
mistakes of others and will refrain from
anylineofcriticiem,whichlnjuresthecause
it means to defend. In Dr. McGIyun's
statement in the papera this morning, we
read as follows:—"! did promise in 1882
to make no more Irish league speeches,
and when again censured in 1S83 for
favoring Irish revolution in a speech on
behalf of the suffering Irish people, I promised to make no more speeches on tho
Irish questioa even for charity. Hut I
did not bind myself to abstain for all
times from public speaking on political
and social subjects," It appears from
that that his offence began at tbe last
meeting that he addressed in this city in
1882, and that Cardinal Simeon then
censured him for favoring Irish revolution. Herein lies the head aud front of
Dr. McGlynn'a offence. Now mark tho
striking coincidence in 1S82, The Irish
cause waa in thn death struggle of discouragement and coercion. Every resource of power was employed to disrupt
our ranks and destroy the land league,
and it was in that hour, when we wore
menaced by distraction, that Cardinal
Simeon, at the desire of English agents
in Rome, joined his feeble nttceks to those
of Ireland's other enemies. It appears
now that he was not satisfied with his
vain attempts to coerce the bishops and
priests of Ireland into doing England's
political work. He also aimed his little
thunderbolts at our friends in America,
because he was instructed by England
that it was here we found our sinews of
war, and here of all the friends of Ireland, Cardinal Simeon has singled out for
punishment one of as devoted priests and
single hearted men as Ood has ever
called to the miniatry; one of the largest
hearts; ono of the most Catholic mmds
that ever donned the vestments of
Catholic priesthood; ono of the fearless
champions that Ireland has ever given to
the causo of human liberty and for supporting their movements in Ireland,
which meant to grasp robber landlordism,
for supporting, what Cardinal Simeon
culled, and what I am proud to call, tho
Irish Revolution. Let there be no mistake about the origin of tho hostility to
our beloved friencl Had he been engaged in praising England, or in defending landlordism in 1882, he might be today the Archbishop of Now York.
Father McGlynn has done what bist.ops
and priests in Ireland have done in defiance of this same Cardinal's injunctions.
He is awarded punishment whicli the
propaganda would have meted out to the
Father McGlynns of Ireland. It is
absurd to belie >o that Father MoGlynn
would leave the churoh to take tbe stump.
He claims, and I think rightly so, the
right to think for himself in political
matters. Dr, McGlynn does not force
his views ou any person on this continent or on his church. But until they
are declared by the head of the chur. h
as contrary to tho Catholic faith,
Dr. McGlynn tells mo that he
will not retract these doctrines
(Cheers). I sincerely hopo Dr. McGlynn
will go to Rome and defend the justice
of these doctrines. And while I do not
question the courage of Dr. McGlynn I
must say that those who advise him not
to go to Rome, no matter how good may
be their intentions or objects, are unconsciously giving cowardly advice.
London, Jan. 34.— Four hundred socialists attended tho services in Batter-
sea church to-day. Canon Clarko was
escorted to the church by policemen, In
his sermon ho defended himself against
the attacks of the socialists. After tlie
service Burns made a speech outside of
the church In whioh he condemned in
strong terms the stand taken by Canon
Clarke against socialism. Ue was interrupted by the clergyman himself, who
threatened to throw him into the horse
trough. Canon Clarke then retired,
amid the jeers of the crowd. Burns'
mention ot the queen and royal family
was a signal for lasses.
The Daily News professes to know
that thore Ib extreme danger of war. It
says the government is alarmed on account of Its having heard that Germany
Is likely within a few days to question
France s military movements on tne German frontier.
Mr Henry Harding, of Toronto, writes:
My little daughter, 7 years of age, has
been a terrible sufferer this- winter from
rheumatism, being for weeks confined to
her bed, with limbs drawn up, which
could not b • straightened, and suffering
great pain in everv joint of limbs, arms
and shoulders, Tne best of physicians
could not help her, and wo were advised
to try Dr. Thomas' Eclectrie Oil, whioh
we done, and the benefit was at once
apparent; after using two bottles the
pain left, her limbs assumed tlieir natural shape, and in two weeks she was as
well as over.   It has not returned.

From tho Montreal Star.
There is every likelihood of litigation concerning the payment of the
policies of assurance held on the life
of the late Mr, J. S. McLachlan. One
company, tho Sun Lifo, has paid its
policies, but it is stated tiie others resist payment. It may be tliat the
matter will be amicably settled, but
such is not the present appearance.
There was, as lias been Btatcd, a total
of $42,130.70 insurance on his life,
placed as follows: In the Sun Life, on
his life 97000, with a bonus of $130.-
70, and nu accident policy in the same
company for $10,000, making a total
of $17,130.70. Of the accident policy
for $10,000, $5000 of it was reinsured
with the Citizens' Insurance Company.
The Sun Lifo has paid the $17,130.70
to the heirs. The Citizens refuse to
pay tho Sun Life, and tho latter company will enter suit. The Sun Life
on paying the claim to tlie McLachlan
heirs, took from the three executors a
personal bond to refund the amount of
insurance with 0 per cent, interest
compounded yearly should Mr. J. S,
McLachlan ever turn up alive. The
other insurances were $11,000 in London and Lancashire Life Co.. $2000 in
the iEtim Life, $2000 in the Dominion
Safety Fund and a partnership policy
for $10,000 in the Accident Company
of Nortii America, There was a personal accident policy in the latter com-
Sany, and when J. S. McLachlan left
lontreal some time ago, the unearned
portion of thc premium was returned
and the policy cancelled. The partnership policy for $10,000 is contested by
the Nortii America Company on the
ground that Mr, J. S. McLachlan was
not a registered partner at the time of
his death. Tho partnership policy
was on the lives of tho Messrs. Mc-
Lachlnns, Mr. Radford and Mr. Bro-
phy—four in all. In case of death by
accident of any of them the polioy was
payable to the survivors. When Mr.
Brophy retired from tlie business his
name was removed from the policy and
another put m his place by the company,
who never was and is not now a partner.
While tho Sun Life has paid its policies, the others have expressed the desire to receive moro satisfactory proofs
of death than have been furnished
them. The Citizens' Insurauce Company claims, first, that they were not
notified of a desire for renewal, and
second, that the premium for the second year, which began in August last,
has uot yet been paid. The policy of
tho Mtna calls tor the production of
the body. Mr. W. McLachlan has
written a letter to Mr. Mocaulay, of
the Sun Life, certifying to tho honorablo and liberal manner in whioh thut
company has acted with regard to the
claim. \J. O. McLeod, is agent for
the Sun Life iu this city.]   djal4w2

The Confederation Lift.
The annual roport of this solidly prosperous Canadian institution will be found
in another column. The facts revealed
in the accounts and the Directors' report
thoroughly justify the ecomiums which
tho shareholders present bestowed upon
tlie management. Thanks tothe resolute
manner in which the Company has de*
cllned to embark upon extravagant
methods of procuring business, the work*
ing expenses of the company bear to the
total income the very small ratio of be*
tween 17 and 18 per cent. A point attesting the soundness of the finances of
the Company is the fact that the interest
income is sufficient to pay tho death
claims—which in a company of the age of
the Confederation Life is something to be
proud of. The ass ts and liabilities are
set forth in minute detail, and tbe tables
show that, after making allowance for all
possible contingencies and providing for
every debt, there Is a surplus of $282,199
over liabilities and capital combined.
The increase in the assets in the lost year
was $260,390. So muoh for what can be
done by rigid adherence to what the
President defined as the true polioy of
the Company, viz:—"To keep its balance
sheet right and avoid unnecessary, unwise, or extravagant expenditure for the
sake merely of increasing new business."

Whim Bronze Monuments.-White
Bronze is a comparatively new substance,
and has come into large use, rapidly, for
special purposes in this country. It hss
been found to bo so well adapted for statuary and monuments, that companies
have been for some time established at
Bridgeport, Conn., Detroit, Mich., Des
Moines, Iowa, and St. Thomas, Canada,
who are making monuments of all kinds
aud styles. Frnm experiments made by
these companies, It has been found that
the material will stand exposure for an
indefinite period—it is practically indestructible. White Bronse being non-
corrosive and unchangeable, it is stated
to be equal to gold, silver or platinum,
and superior to copper or antique bronze,
which throws off a verdigris. The monuments are cast from refined zinc, and are
given their sparkling appearance by the
sand blast, sand being blown against the
work under a high pressure of steam,
whioh cuts the surface, but does not ad*
here to it. A thin film of oxide whioh
forms on this bronze is indistructible by
the elements; it cannot be dissolved bv
water, and air cannot penetrate it, although the film is so thin as to be immeasurable. >To cortosion, it is affirmed,
can take place.— He*ton Journal of Commerce, Chas. J. Robsou, New Westminster, is agent for the White Bronze

Plain Talk to Mothers.
It was at a Sunday-school teachers'
meeting not many weeks ago. Tho
discussion had drifted—as discussions
are somewhat prone to do, even in the
best regulated teachers' meeting—a
little aside from the subject in hand.
Some one asked the question, "Why
do all young children, almost as soon
as they can talk, begin to prevaricate,
to exaggerate, and to lie outright I"
"That is according to David's experience—'they go astray as soon as they
be born, speaking lies,'" replied one.
"It is total depravity asserting itself
in that way, at a tender age," said
another..
'"Children have an exuberant imagination, and they do not know any
harm in romancing a littlo in their
way," suggested a third.
"And if they have done wrong, they
are afraid to meet the consequences,
was still another suggestion.
The superintendent, a gray-haired
mag whom all respected and loved,
now apoke.
"I am glad the lesson has wandered
off into this channel," he aaid, very
seriously. "It gives ine a chanco to
say s«me .things that have weighed
heavily on my mind lately. And yuu
must not take offence at what 1 am
going to say. Most of you, dear teachers, are young parents. I have known
you from your infancy till now. I
have watched with anxiety, your course
in life. I have gone into your homes,
Christian homes, too, I am happy to
kuow that they are,—and I liave noted
with painful interest how yon are
training the immortal souls God has
put into your care, I will give you
credit for desiring, conscientiously, to
train them for heaven. But you must
pardon my plain speaking when I tell
you, young mothers especially, that
you—Christian mothers that you are—
ara every day teaching your children
to lie."
An exclamation of astonishment was
on every tongue. Some of the young
mothers looked indignant, sume incredulous, but most of them seemed
desirous of an explanation.
"I do not understand you, Mr.
Grainger. Please explain, said a
sweet-faced woman near him.
"I .nean simply this. You stand,
to your young child, in place nf God.
From your lips he is to loam all lessons of right nnd wrong, truth and
fahwhuld. What he sees you do, ho
supposes the right and proper thing to
to do. What he hears you say, he implicitly trusts.
"Now, how do you train yuur child t
This morning, fur instance, at tho
breakfast-table, Johnny wanted a lump
of sugar.
" 'No, you can't liave it, .Johnny; it
will make you sick.'
" It won't raako'nie sick, mamma;'
and Johnny cried and frotted, and
finally, to keep peace in the family,
you gar. him the lump of sugar. And
It did not make him sick, either.
"Now, Johnny is wise enough to
understand that you told him two
falsehoods. You told him he could
not have the lump of sugar, and then
you gave it to lum.   You told him it
would make him siok, when you knew
that on. lump of sugar would not have
that effect, although a down might.
An you not teaching him to toll untruths?
"I often bear a mother aay to her
child, "Now, if you do that again, I'll
Suniah you.' • The child, well knowing
y long experience that he Is not in
immediate danger, does the forbidden
thing (gain. The mother says at each
repetition of the act, 'Didn't I tell you
I would punish you V To be sure she
did, and the child knows it, and sho
ought to have kept her word and visit-
ad the offender with instant punishment when the forbidden act was re-
Kted in apit» of her threat. But she
lied henelf. Is it any wonder if
herokjjd won learns the lesson of
"But, Mr. Grainger," interposed
on. of tha ladiea, "we do not really
uwn that we are going to punish our
children every time we use that threat.
II il * habit we have, and they under-
atand it. ahd I don't think they attach
anyparthwlAr or definite meaning to
it, oxcept that it is an admonition to
them to behave themselves."
"I think you are arguing un mysido,"
aaid Mr. Grainger. "It is really tho
saddest part of it thut children soon
come to attach no importance to a
mother's oxplieit declarations. If her
wurds havo nu meaning, or if they
moan exactly opposite what they say,
then why need they bo careful to adhere strictly to the truth ? Why should
not they, alsu, acquire a habit even
tho very bad habit of which wo havo
been speaking—tho habit of lying ?"
These were plain words, but tho
superintendent spoko from lung observation. May nut his warnings bo
needed in some uther localities ?—S, S.

Imprisoned In a Clock Face.
One cf the glories of tho ancient
church of St. Martin's was its line
dock. It was the boast of old Hans
Scheller that, during the whole forty
years in which he had boon custodian
of the church tho clock had never
stopped or gono wrong; and nothing
could convince him that it was not by
far the finest clock iu the whole
world.
The only thing wliich troubled Hans
was the fear lest his little son Kuspar,
who was always in some mischief or
othor, should in one uf his boyish
pranks, injure thc mechanism of this
wonderful timepiece, Ko wonder,
therefore, thut when ono morning he
was about to start for town to do some
marketing, Huns took care .first of all
to lock the door of tho church tower
and put the key iu his pocket.
" No harm can happen now," ho
muttered, " and in any ease I Bhall bo
buck before he gets out of school."
But, as ill-luck would have ic, Ihe
teacher was called away by some business that afternoon, and the boys got
out of school more than an hour earlier than usual. Kaspar, finding his
father gone, went straight to tho door
of tho clock tower, and looked rather
blank on discovering that it was
looked. Put he was not one to be
easily stopped when he had once made
up his mind. Getting out upon the
roof and crawling along a cornice
where only a oat or a schoolboy could
have found footing, he crept through
an airhole right into the olook room-
Fur some time he was as happy as
a child in a toy shop, running from
one marvel to another, till at length
ho discovered anothor hole, and
thrusting his head through it, found
himsolf looking down upon the market
place through the face of tlie cluck
itself. But when ho triod to withdraw
his head again it would not come.
It was such a queer scrapo to he in
that Kaspar was more inclined tu
laugh than bo frightened; hut suddenly a thought struck him which
scared him in earnest; hi. neck was
in the track of the minute hand,
whieh, when it reached him, must inevitably tear his head off.
Poor Kaspar! It was too late now
to wish that ho had left .the clock
alone. Ho tried to scream for holp,
but with his neck in that cramped position, the cry thut ho gave waB scarcely louder than tho chirp of a sparrow.
He struggled desperately to writhe
himself baok through tlie hole, but a
pieco of tho woodwork had slipped
down upon the back of his neck and
hold him like a vise.
On came the destroyer, nearer and
nearer still, marking off with measured tick his few remaining moments of
life. And all the while lhe sun was
shining gaily, the tiny dugs were fluttering on the booths of the market,
and the merry voices of liis schoolfellows who wero playing in the marketplace came faintly tu his earn, while
he hung thore helpless, with death
stealing upon him ineh liy inch.
His head grew dizzy, the measured
beat of the ticking sounded like tho
roll of a muffled drum, while
the coining hand of the
clock looked like a monstrous arm
outstretched to seize hiirr, and Ihe
carved faces un the spouts seemed tu
grin and gibber at him in mockery.
And still the terrible hand crept onward, nearer, nearer, nearer.
What can tlint thing in the clock
face be ?" said a tourist below, pointing his spy-glass upwards. " Why, I
declare, it looks like a boy's head."
" A boy's head!" cried a gray haired
watchmaker beside him (•■nu of Hans
Scheller's special friend.) snatching
hastily at the glass us he spoke.
" Why, good gracious I It's little
Kaspar. He'll bo killed 1 he'll be
killed I" and he rushed toward the
church, shouting like a madman.
Tho alarm spread liko wildfire, and
before Klugnianu, tho watchmaker,
had got half wuy up the stair leading
to the tower moro than a score of excited men were scariporing at his
heels. But at the buck of tho stair
they were suddenly brought In a
standstill by tho looked door.
"It's locked I" cried Klugmann, in
tones of horror, "and Hans must
have taken the key with him, for it
isn't here."
"Nevor mind the key," roared a
brawny smith behind him. " Pick up
that beam, comrades, and run it
■gainst the lock.   All together now I"
Crash went tho door and In
rushed tho crowd, and Kaspar, now
sonsoloss from sheer fright, was
dragged out nf Iub strange prison just
ob the huge bar of the minute hand
actually touched his nock.
And bo it fell out that poor old
Scheller, ooming homo for a quiot
afternoon nap, fonnd tho door of the
tower smashed in, his son lying in a
swoon, and his little room crowded
with strango men all talking at  onco.
But from that day forth Kaspnr
Scheller never meddled with tho
ehurch clock again.
